entering a new cycle


A very hot few days it’s been.  Day before yesterday was horrid, I think that was a first experience for me… very intense.  It’s often a bit cooler here in the mountains.  I didn’t like it at all, and the poor birds and the rest of the wildlife.  A stunning gleaming black Raven sat on the bird bath yesterday, and drank heartedly; that’s never happened before.  I didn’t get a chance to take a photo.

For all whatever reasons, I don’t do well in that weather, I can feel my body struggling.  Yes, yes dear Pluto is visiting my Moon, who resides in his house after all!  You think she’d be a little familiar with him by now.  But goodness, he just gets so full on about everything… and there’s no room for comment.

Within our current energy bubble, there are a few things going on;  who to put first?  Venus?  I hear Saturn grumbling, I will not be bullied!  So… our most beautiful Goddess Aphrodite has just moved in with Sagittarius… the Seeker of Truth, what a man.  Followed in five days by the Moon Goddess, seeking the truths in our emotional bodies, in our heritage.  Beautiful visions.  With Neptune standing still, preparing to begin his new way forward after his time of reflection… Magick fills the air.


‘Awakening’ is on my fridge.  It’s from my dear friend Samyo, who instructed and introduced me to Facial Harmony (I haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love Facial Harmony ).  We held the workshop at my Healing Centre in West Ipswich, the one I renovated, restored with my partner; he did a wonderful job.  I did quite a bit too.  I had the vision … it was such a transformation.  It was really beautiful.

A little story from then ~ I was close to completing the packing up of my two houses, one which was my business Magick Moments.

I’d heard the call, I finally put down my arms.  It was a process, everything is a process.  The gift of a Sun and Moon in Earth and in a harmonious relationship… that was compassion.  My natal Sth Node is in Scorpio, a heritage strewn with blood… and the most regal of transformation.  It took nine months to shut up shop in both my home and Magick Moments.   I  did finally take off for Adelaide with my dear friend Beth (my aging Pajero) where I stayed for eighteen months, to be near my boy.  I was sad when I left.

That leaving took me to here… first Woodenbong, then Lindesay Creek.  And now a new chapter beckons.

But I’m diverting…


A walk to the garden, my Gardenia bush is covered in buds and flowers.  The sensational Gardenia Flower.  I have two Gardenia Flower Essences, which you will find in the ‘Deva-line Flower Essence Descriptions’ in the above menu.

So… I’d packed up all of Magick Moments, shifted and stored.  I was having a final garage sale.  I’d stored all the things in my lovely renovated shed…

someone broke in and stole some stuff.   I decided to spend the night there.  The house was empty, or so I thought.  I took my futon and bedding and slept on the floor in what was my healing room.  I lay down on my back and straight away I saw them… the room was full of people, circle upon circle.  It blew me away… I had no idea.  The feeling was amazing.  I enjoyed therapy work, it can feel pretty cosmic at times.  But it’s real, in the sense that it’s happening here and now.  The Body is a sensational creation.  My hands feel the rhythm, they connect and follow, the body knows what it needs.


Back in the present, our majestic Sun sits with serious Saturn, there is no hurry… he wants it done right, slow and steady. Mars is charging head-on to the Nodes… our journey from others into our self.  Mars is still pretty snug with Pluto, energy is strong; such wondrous opportunity for transmutation.  Great God of the Oceans, Neptune, keeper of the key to the Akashic Records, is standing still, preparing to move forward into a new cycle.

Uranus, bringer of the New Age, moving closer and closer to the Sth Node, recharging all the old stuff… sending a bolt of brilliant light into our destiny field.   So much opportunity.

We’re moving into the Balsamic Cycle of our Sacred Moon… leading us through the dark, into the new.  A time of Death, Release, Rebirth… new seeds of growth.  It’s a time for slowing down, your body will remind you, she’d like you to listen.  We have cycles too, we are part of the Great Mother and Father Gods… we don’t exist in isolation.

Open yourself to love and adventure, to your destiny.  Give your body what it needs, it will take you on a journey you otherwise wouldn’t see.  Enjoy.


Dear Snowie, it was hot for her too… first time outside on that horrid day, it was early evening…

till next time, enjoy being alive…. lotsa luv marilynxxx
