Happy New Year, friends!
We made it!
Sending a warm hug to all of you, and feeling so blessed to be together on this journey of growth, discovery, and evolution.
We have two eclipses this month--one solar and one lunar.
While the partial solar eclipse at the New Moon will have a lighter vibration, the lunar eclipse at the Full Moon will a bit denser. It will likely bring old wounds up to the surface for them to be healed and cleared.
This month is about mastery of self and long term strategy. Where we focus our energy now is setting the tone for what's to come for us over the next 20-28 years!

With all this power of the cosmic forces at work and the wind in our sails, I am eager to share with you a ritual of review and renewal that I do at this time every year.

The purpose of my life is to live authentically, and to be in service; to experience the fullness, diversity, magic, celebration, sensations, and richness of life, and to do so in presence, in trust, and in truth. To call upon the medicine of the eagle and its power to see as many perspectives as possible so as to bring more unity consciousness into the world, and to help us humans remember who we are and how we can help to harmonize the planet. To listen to guiding spirit to help us make choices that will enable us to grow and transform in alignment with our soul's purpose. I'm here to grow spiritually, to love deeply, to give immensely, and to serve others to the best of my capacities. To use all the gifts Creation has bestowed upon me to make the biggest, most positive impact on our beautiful planet and universe that I can.

To help people raise their level of awareness by helping them to recognize their inherent genius, beauty, and true self-worth. My friends, co-creators, and I are helping people to learn how to recognize, nurture, listen, hear, heal, reclaim fragments, and integrate.

This eclipse, I make an offering, with honey, fruits, corn, spirits, water, tobacco, sweet grass, flowers, crystals, totems, and medicines on behalf of myself and all of us.
Holding a prayer in honor of us and the growth, wisdom, truth, pain, joy, clarity, choices, actions, reactions and words we have lived this past year.
May we honor ourselves, Gaia, and each other with loving spaciousness in our hearts. May we demonstrate responsibility, patience, trust, ease, and right relationship through our thoughts, words, and deeds. May we nurture our inner children and play more, laugh more, and create more art!

We have a lot of forward moving energy this month calling us to our power, asking us to get out there and share what we know. We have two potent eclipses coming, and their energy will give us a much needed push. These eclipses will bring clarity; as they work their magic, we will feel more aligned and more confident about our path forward.
The first eclipse of the year is a solar eclipse on January 5-6th in Capricorn. This is the first Capricorn eclipse we have had since 2011, and it heralds the start of a new eclipse cycle.
This solar eclipse will be helping us with a powerful energetic cosmic push. It will support us in setting goals and taking risks when it comes to leaping into our chosen direction.
Think back to what themes were happening in your life around 2009-2011, as this may give you a clue as to what this new eclipse cycle may bring your way.
The second eclipse falls on January 20-21st and is a Super Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo. This eclipse is extremely significant and will be helping to wrap up a huge cycle of energy that we have been working with since February 2017.
While the solar eclipse has a lighter tone to it, the lunar eclipse at the end of the month may be heavy, and we may find some old pains and wounds brought up to the surface for clearing.
It seems that all of us are being called to detoxify our minds, bodies, and souls before we can move through the rest of the year.
The best way to navigate through the month is to use the energy of the solar eclipse to set intentions, and then to trust that in order for your intentions to be fulfilled, the lunar eclipse has to do some clearing for you.
By the month’s end, you may be feeling a little depleted due to the strong lunar energy, so be sure to rest up and recharge your batteries while you can.
