Its a Groundhog Kinda Day

Lotsa activity in the skies and inside the soul: Imbolc, new Aquarius moon ( almost smack on my Ascendant), Chinese New Year of the Pig, and the last days of Chiron in Pisces…

And yet,  I often feel like no-thing has changed and the ground beneath me is quaking. But I continue to soldier on, knowing deep within that all is and has always been and will all-ways be, well.

I continue to sample meditations from Dr. Joe Dispenza and look for ways to connect with the Universe, where all is possible and here for the enjoyment of all. It occurred to me that the film Groundhog Day will reveal some new insights for me at this time.  After-all, we just had Groundhog day here in the States and I do live in Pennsylvania, and don’t they look like  otters ? I have seen it several times already, but it contains so many layers of complexity.

Here is a clip for your viewing pleasure:

I plan to watch the film tonight and take my cues as guided. I see this new moon as a second birthday of sorts and my present to me is to be Present.

 

love to all, litebeing

Elevation ~ Lee Harris Energy Update

 

The weather has been frigid with snow on and off today. I am enjoying the winter feeling and new breeziness of February. Happy Imbolc to everyone! I find the cross – quarter days fascinating, especially those that coincide with my sun and Ascendant/Descendant axes. The lovely Brigid, featured in the image above is associated with this holy day that celebrates the crossover from Winter to Spring. Funny how Groundhog Day falls during this same time period, right?  I can also report that my health is so much more improved today. I feel freer and more energized and I want to sustain it and build upon it. Yes!

Please check out Lee Harris discussing the energies of February 2019. He speaks of the ending of clearing and the introduction of more light on the planet. He uses the term elevation and abundance frequently and I am taken with this idea.

How about you? What does elevation mean to you?

 

 

Lee is such a gentle soul who brings forth such rich material consistently. It is a joy to take in these messages and carry them forward. Imbolc has a Celtic and Pagan history and Ireland is the home of the magical band U2.

Please enjoy this video of their hit song, Elevation:

Happy February to all my radiant litebeings! On this snowy morning with the moon in Aries and Mercury Retrograde nipping at my nose, I thought it would be worthwhile to re-post my first astrology post from a year ago.

Happy Blogiversary ~ Blooming Right Along, 6 Years Strong

public domain image wikipedia.org

Another year brings in another blogiversary. litebeing chronicles turned 6 on 1-11-19 and my niece has a birthday today on 1-13! With so much emphasis on Saturn and Capricorn, I am so pleased to have witnessed both the birth of my eldest niece and my blog during the time of Cardinal Earth. Time marches on, but in another realm, stillness prevails and peace is ever-present. We are living out monumental changes here in the physical but Saturn is so strong and resilient, painstakingly grounding us to encourage the manifestation of form.

Over 6 years ago I chose to begin writing publicly here at WordPress. My goal was simple, to share my everyday stories about finding magic in plain sight. I figured that the act of writing about my journey would inspire more magic and more motivation to continue writing. That was it in a nutshell. Over time I had hoped the blog would be a place of refuge and a mirror for my readers. While those two ideas may seem paradoxical, well maybe they are! As the blog developed, more art, photography and music began to fill these pages, along with sharing my passion for astrology. None of this was planned, other than my desire to share my life’s journey one story at a time.

It did not occur to me that my health may decline or my ability to sustain meaningful employment would become unstable. It did not occur to me that I may suffer more spiritual confusion or harrowing grief and depression. This was not on my agenda.

But on the other hand, it did not occur to me that I would make so many ( or any, really) fabulous friends and participate in the creation of e-books, blogging challenges, or write for other sites. It continues to amaze me at how my readership grows and how more and more beautiful souls enter my life! It also never occurred to me that Matt Mullenweg, WP’s founder would be born on the day I decide to publish my first post! Cosmic collisions and sensational synchs perpetually lead me to the next moment, leaving me awestruck and grateful for all of the blessings bestowed upon me.

I continue to strive to be authentic and share my truth on these pages. I sometimes worry if my emotional honesty has affected the dynamics here lately. I envision litebeing chronicles as a place for dialogue, meaningful commentary, and community. Please tell me what you enjoy most about visiting here and what types of posts are most compelling. How does the emotional tone of certain posts impact you?  I am very interested to hear how my readers respond to the dark that has appeared in more of my writing this past year. While I aim to write from the heart first and foremost, I do not want to alienate my readers by what some refer to as over sharing.

I plan to continue writing as guided and offering diverse content that reflects my values and passions, including reblogs of material by fellow writers that speak to my soul. The active process of public writing serves me in so many ways. Engaging in this community has helped me grow and evolve beyond what any words can  accurately gauge. The exposure to new ideas and concepts has proven so therapeutic and has seeded so many adventures.

One of the lessons I have learned this year is that loving oneself is a full-time job that requires spontaneity and endless tenacity. I have tried so many activities and ventures since I began blogging. Many were successful and even more were seemingly failures. I have taken a risk recently that I thought was the right thing to do out of love for myself. I accepted a job offer that I knew was not right for me because I needed to support myself. This decision was made in part out of respect for the millions of parents who toil day in and day out to support their families and keep their commitments. This worldview is very much in tune with my incredibly strong Saturn in Capricorn natal placement. While most of the events preceding and during  the early days of the job were jarring, I chose to attribute them to anxiety and the need to readjust to my schedule and responsibilities.  I can see clearly now that the signs and events that appeared were also there to warn me that I was moving further out of alignment. But I was stubborn and did not want to entertain the true complexity of the signs I was receiving. So eventually I had to leave the job to restore my internal balance.

In the meantime I would like to engage more with all of you through my astrological services, including a giveaway of one free reading. Not only will you be receiving uniquely, individualized information to help you grow and develop, you will be assisting me during a time of financial uncertainty. Please visit here to learn more about the 50 % off sale and giveaway happening right now.  Sharing my gifts with you over the years has truly been a privilege. Thanks to all who support my work by either reading a post, liking and commenting, reblogging my material, or purchasing a reading. All the love and support empowers me to become even better at bringing my gifts to new heights.

I do not know what the future holds, but believe that some version of it is already in motion. Blogging has brought more into my life that I can even begin to express. At times it has also saved my life by offering me a platform to be of service regardless of what else was playing out away from the computer and wi-fi signal. For those who read, yet do not like or comment, I value your time and interest and also encourage you to say hello. Let me know who you are and how you are doing either in the comments section or by email. We all benefit from eliciting the best from one another by genuine engagement and communication. In this 3 year, this will be especially meaningful and also necessary if we want to co – create a planet of lite.

namaste , litebeing

Hey 2019, Let’s Dive Right In!

I bought this lavender day planner not long ago. I typically get a smaller black one, but opted for this larger model in one of my favorite colors. Ironically, I have a planner and very few plans. But it symbolizes a blank slate, brimming with possibilities. Rather than contemplate or over-analyze, I prefer to dive right in.

While most of my readers know that I am not much of a structured holiday person, I often find value in some of the practices or activities, knowing they stem from a good place. If we want to pick an arbitrary point for the new year, tomorrow’s partial solar eclipse in Capricorn is an excellent choice.  A solar eclipse occurs on a new moon and eclipses are like lunations on steroids, so tomorrow 1-4-19 at 8:28 EST could behold a fresh start for many.

I would like to share some videos on my first post of the year that made quite an impression on me. They share some similarities. but have distinct points of view. But I will begin with some recent photos taken a few days ago at Longwood Gardens. It is noteworthy that I have yet to dedicate an entire essay to my time there, because it has often served as one of my power places. Even on more mundane visits, it is always breathtakingly beautiful and every moment is unique in its own right.









The first two videos are by thought leaders that need no introduction, Matt Kahn and Lee Harris. Matt is more badass and Lee is a bit more polite, but they both offer excellent, often prophetic content on the current metaphysical climate. This new Matt Kahn video is called We belong to the Light. Matt jokes that it is channeled from Pat Benatar. He does not reference which song, but I would say it is We Belong. It is one of my old school favorites. I googled the lyrics and the first line of the chorus is We belong to the light. Funny, I sang it as We belong to the night.

What I found especially significant in this teaching is Matt’s suggestion for how to handle “unusual events”. He advises against asking why something happens or looking for an accurate explanation. Instead, he instructs us to ask ourselves ” What do we need?” I really like this idea because it let’s us focus on how to take better care of ourselves instead of going off on some intellectual tangent. Matt is very much about self-care these days and finds many inventive strategies for flowing with life, rather than beating up ourselves or anyone/anything outside of ourselves ( as if there really is an outside?)

This next video is a real gem because it is a Live 1 hour segment. Unlike the monthly energy forecasts, this presentation goes into more detail and even features a Q&A section at the end! What I found most interesting here is Lee’s take on 2019 as the end of one 7 year cycle and the beginning of a new 7 year cycle. While 2019 in a 3 year in numerology, there are individual numerological cycles ( not to mention astrological cycles) all at play simultaneously. Lee delves into the 2012 phenomenon and how it led us to this point in time. I highly recommend you save this one and listen in small increments, as I often do with Matt’s videos. I often fall asleep if I watch for too much at one sitting!

This final selection is seemingly divergent from the two previous ones, but I would say only on the surface. Bandersnatch is the first movie version of Netflix’s highly popular, controversial Black Mirror series. One could say I am a reluctant fan of this very dark, mysterious Sci Fi series available on the Netflix streaming service. This piece is not only their first full feature film, but it is also interactive. You, the viewer get to make choices on how the story progresses. Without giving too much away, this interactive process lends itself to a story within a story framework that explores, fate vs destiny, parallel realities, and time travel. Why do I include it with the previous videos that do seem more light and optimistic? What all three have in common is that they are highly engaging and invite the viewer to get off the escalator and empower yourself.

I am more inclined to say that free will is not all that free at this juncture. And yet, I do think that making choices can lead to brighter outcomes. How we choose and why we choose is up to you! Check out all three if possible ( Netflix is not free so I included the trailer only) and let me know you reactions in the comments.

This image above is a smaller version of the header photo. I selected it as the header because it serves as a metaphor for 2019. It is fresh and new, multi-faceted, and interactive. It also brings the light and lets you decide where you end and where you begin. So either with or without plans or resolutions, take a deep breath and dive right in.

I wish you a very blessed 2019! 

 

Just one more thing ~  Keep your eyes glued to this site as I will be posting a big surprise very soon!

 

Until then, wishing you a healthy and transformative eclipse.

Fare thee well 2018

It has been a very intense and overwhelming time for me lately. I have so many unanswered questions, loose ends, and unfinished business that will remain a mystery as this year closes. While I typically do not view the end of the calendar year as an accurate time to usher in new beginnings, years of cultural conditioning orient me to use this window to clear out what no longer is needed. We cannot totally eliminate our 3D cultural orientation while in a body, or can we?? Perhaps the answer will be revealed in the coming year. With Mars entering Aries tonight and Uranus moving forward just a few days later, I foresee increased energy and collective excitement around change, revolution, and optimism for the planet.

Here is a brief tale from four years ago that would be considered Divine timing. As I walked outside tonight on 12-31-14 to take out the trash, I looked all around and prayed fervently for a sign to guide me. No creatures were in sight, yet..

As I approached my front door, one by one all the light fixtures at the apartment complex began to turn on. My prayer was answered! It is all about the light.

I call this blog litebeing chronicles so that I can use myself to illuminate the planet with all I have to offer. I have so much more inside of me. I have not mastered litebeing consciousness yet.

So I close out 2018 with a huge thank you to all my luminous readers with a wonderful video that encourages us all to shine brightly onward.

Keep yourselves glued to this site for a special announcement coming soon in 2019 ❤

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  Namaste, litebeing

Ponder with Care

My long time bloggette buddy Julie nominated me a while back for the 3, 2, 1 Me Challenge.

The directions are as follows:

Please write a post about Ponder, and including two quotes on the subject, and nominate three other bloggers to blog about a word of your choosing.

I took a very long time to approach this challenge, which is not really my style. Yet I hesitated because I did not initially connect with the word ponder in terms of this assignment. Since it did not ” speak to me “, I filed it away, knowing I would return to it when the time was right. That time is now.

So what was my issue with the word ponder? My immediate reaction was that I used to ponder way too much and that my addiction to introspection was a trap. At some point I considered my intellect to be one of my superpowers. I relied on it way too heavily, to the point of minimizing other ” pursuits” like imagination and emotional expression. I was afraid of the power of sloppy vulnerability and felt safer in the mental realms of  rational ideas, logic, and analysis.

Eventually I came to the realization that messy, loose states of being were a gateway to living more authentically and not a sign of weakness. Fragility can have a sweet delicate quality that evokes awe. This is part of the spiritual path, plain and simple.

I chose the following quotes that include ponder within them. Let’s examine the first one:

A season of suffering is a small assignment when compared to the reward. Rather than begrudge your problem, explore it. Ponder it. And most of all, use it. Use it to the glory of God.  Max Lucado

 

This quote by Max Lucado is more poignant in this moment because I am enthralled in a season of suffering. So much loss, rejection, frustration, sadness, longing, and despair reside within me now. Call it Mars/Chiron conjunction in Pisces angst or garden variety melancholy.  I am not certain that more pondering is in order for me personally, but I do agree that using my darkness for good is on point. This quote directs one to live out loud in the moment, not to judge oneself for feeling less than “acceptable.” Regarding the reward, I find these types of gifts are usually uncovered further down the road, in a small town called Retrospect. Are you familiar with Retrospect? It has a few strip malls, a gas station, a dive bar, and one decent diner. I recommend the fries with gravy.

 

The other quote I chose gives different directives on how to ponder:

It is possibly not very helpful to our inner life to ponder a great deal on how the external world is reflected in our soul. By doing so, we do not get beyond a shadowy picture of the world of mental images in ourselves.  Rudolf Steiner

 

This quote by Rudolf Steiner reminds me of a recent lesson by Matt Kahn. Matt often warns his students about associating the outer world with one’s state of  consciousness. If we encounter someone who treats us poorly, refrain from reaching the conclusion that we must also be treating others this way. He teaches that mirroring in this way is unhealthy and not a relevant spiritual practice. It appears that Steiner is in agreement here, cautioning against using what is outside of us as a barometer for one’s spiritual health. I am unclear on what he does suggest as an alternative, but I find his statement helpful and worthy of consideration.

The challenge requests that I choose a new word for 3 other bloggers to use in their posts. The word I have chosen is fragile.  I am using my guidance to choose the participants, so here we go: Michael, Tania ,  and Ka .

If you are reading this and are feeling inspired, please feel free to take up the challenge. Just follow the instructions and link back to this post. Challenges can make the world go around and blog challenges do so in a fun way 🙂

 

LAST CALL: As an aside, have you read the 2 new December entries in my Divine Mission Possible Challenge? If not, you can check them out here. There is still time to write a post if you have not already done so.

The challenge ends with this year, on 12-31-18 so time IS of the essence.

Ode to Donna

Let’s drink a toast to Donna

who relished quality wine

she lived her life with gusto

and ended it by design

Chocolate, fine food, and cigarettes were among her vices

lung cancer is tough going even for the strong

smoking led to her untimely demise

after diagnosis , her time on Earth was not long

public domain image

A Pisces at heart, she enjoyed a relaxing bath

filled to the brim with bubbles

apparently the bubbly immersion

melted away her troubles

She was my online friend

an astrologer like no other

we both had colon issues

she doted on me like a mother

Feisty, generous, stubborn, and direct

we could have similar genes

how do you miss someone you never met

except within a dream?

This quickly put together scrappy poem is my salute to Donna, who passed away on December 8th. I knew of her years before I “met her” on Facebook as I had  bought one of her books on lunar nodes. She was a teacher, healer, astrologer, mother, friend, and organizer of a very special annual astrology conference. She was a very knowledgeable person and lectured on many topics including gemstones and astrology. Donna was also a regular speaker at the magickal Lilydale.

Donna was not always the easiest person to get along with.  The song My Way by Frank Sinatra comes to mind when I think about how she led her life. I regret that I did not have the resources to travel to meet her at a conference. I did see her in a dream and told her about it. I surmised it was a sign we would meet on this plane. She refused any treatment for the cancer and it quickly took her life. It continually amazes me how quickly beings enter and exit our sphere of existence, although I have witnessed this pattern over and over again.

We conversed often on Facebook and in private messages. We exhanged info on astrology, food, and diverticulitis. I  took an online class with her on stress and the horoscope, which was great. She was so wise about so many subjects and had traveled the globe, taking in so much of what life had to offer her. Donna was an icon, yet conducted herself as down to earth as anyone. I think the smoking did her in, when all is said and done.  She was uncompromising about living on her terms. I admire her for it, yet wish she could have stuck around longer.

How do you miss someone you never met , except within a dream?

 

Rest in peace Donna, knowing so many people loved you and that your legacy is rich and strong.

At this time of Solstice across the planet, let’s take time to appreciate the dance between dark and light, love and fear, endings and beginnings. One does not penetrate consciousness in the absence of the other in this current dimension in which we have chosen to incarnate.
