Sludge Party ~ Neptune Direct

celestial-dreams.jpg

UPDATE: The transits are fast and furious for most of 2018: This morning’s Full Gemini Moon and then tomorrow Neptune stations direct! Have you felt spiritually depleted, scattered, overwhelmed? The sludge party should be over soon. Get more sleep, stay grounded, and eat protein.   Happy Full Moon and get your Gemini on 🙂

As an homage to the film Sausage Party, I propose that we name Saturday night’s Neptune station the Sludge Party.

I dreamt last night of being prevented from exiting a train at my stop so I had no choice but to get off at the next stop. While the distance between stops was short, I was transported to another land. It was beautiful , with many waterways and falls. I spotted a pinball arcade and a Wawa ( local unbiquitous convenience store) , but everywhere I wandered, my calls for help were denied. I approached everyone and asked for the name of the town, but no one would answer. I told others I was lost and again, no response. I saw a spectacular pedestrian bridge that was massive. When I awoke I knew this dream was significant. I was reliving a childhood trauma of getting off at the wrong school bus stop at around age 5 or 6. No one was waiting  for me at my stop and I refused to leave with a neighbor child, because I was certain that her stop was not my home. I was mistaken. A woman found me and took me home and I knew my phone number. I was safely returned home, but this event left a huge scar. In the dream, however, I was an adult who felt ignored and alone. Everything seemed a wee bit out of focus and in ” slow mo.”

Hence the sludge party.

Since I never wrote my David Bowie tribute, I will showcase some of his music here tonight. Bowie was quite Neptunian, with Neptune squaring natal Sun, Mercury, and Mars and a Sun Mars conjunction in the 12th house.  I think he would approve of this linkage. It is cool to note that there is a Bowie asteroid 342843, which sits between my natal sun and Neptune. It is closely conjunct both of them , which surprised and delighted me. David Bowie has been a huge influence on me since my early teens and the recent discovery of his asteroid is lovely validation of my affinity with his essence.

Sludge, quicksand, delusion, subtle innuendo, loss, impostor, stranger, aimlessly wandering, illusion, dreams ~ all trés Neptune.

So here is a semi-random sampling of some of my favorite Bowie performances to accompany us on the hero’s journey across the bridge towards higher consciousness, with a side order of sludge for good measure.

Sludge Party ~ Neptune Direct

Neptune is not stationing now, but the last few days feels like I am walking in quicksand, so I went through my archives and found the Sludge Party blog. I notice that most activities take tremendous effort, people seem agitated, the roads are filled with detours and construction, and I wake up often not sure what day it is. No Mercury drama or Saturnian drudge to report, just the last few days of Uranus in Aries.

peace out, litebeing

The Starman at 70 ~ Happy Forever David Bowie

David Bowie, had he lived, would have spent 70 years on Earth as of today. 70 reduces to 7, a sign of mysticism and Christ Consciousness, associated with the planet Neptune. While Bowie had elements of all the collective energies in his chart, Neptune is certainly well-presented. Artistry, musicality, acting, illusion, drugs, mystery, chameleon, shape-shifter, fashion, glamour, fluid identity, all very Neptune.

Rather than rehash what I have recently written, I rather provide links to various posts that include him in some way. You can choose which posts seem appealing and then discover how Bowie fits in.

My favorite Bowie album, Hunky Dory was a response to the transition to adulthood and becoming a father. It is about growth and maturity. In our society, 70 is considered a milestone and definitely elderly. With Capricorn natives , there is this age-reversal phenomenon a la Benjamin Button ; they get younger and freer over time. I think David would have appreciated that idea and hopefully embraced it.

I just found out via google that an old lover Paul has died. He was only 55 years old and I am guessing drugs were involved. We were seeing each other when I was in my late teens and I have not heard from him in eons, but he had been on my mind lately. Watching a show today on Iggy Pop reminded me that we had seen him once in concert. That memory prompted me to google him. Iggy Pop and David Bowie were very close. Iggy said that David resurrected him.  Paul loved all kinds of music and that is one thing we shared in common. I think music kinda resurrected Paul, offering healing and magic. I know it has that effect on me.

I will dedicate this song to Paul and in memory of Bowie ( born David Jones). We met in 1978 when Heroes came out. I recall that Paul liked this tune and I think he would approve.

Wishing you an exuberant Sagittarius New Moon!

 

Welcome to all new readers and followers! I am happy to be back tonight to share some joy and create some opportunities for inspiration and rewards. It has been quite awhile since I have offered an astrology promotion and now seems like a wonderful time to do so. With a new moon in Libra, the Autumnal Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere ( and Vernal/ Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere) the direct movements of both Mercury and Pluto, and the upcoming Jewish New year, ( not to mention Jupiter in Libra, Mars in Capricorn and Venus in Scorpio) this is truly a time for new beginnings. So how can we make the most of this window into infinity?

September has historically been a favorite time for me. I can still visualize my shiny new brown leather school  shoes, the crunchy leaves beneath my feet, and a crisp breeze in the air. How about you?

Before September morphs into October, let me invite you to be playful and spontaneous. When Barbara surprised me with her amazing review of her astrology consultation , I was blown away by the unfolding of her story and my facilitation of a spiritual opening. I felt truly blessed to be gifted with the ability to help people transform their lives.  Then I got an idea that also blew me away…..

What if we all began to view ourselves through the lens of magnificence?

So here is my challenge:

During the months of October and November, compose a post about your ” you- ness”, celebrating your unique essence and energy. Embrace your inner goddess or god ( 0r both)! Very appropriate for the Venus – ruled lunation that’s all about love and grace, don’t you think?

Link your entry to this post and mention Litebeing’s Magnificent Challenge, and you are all set.

I will select one blogger and gift them a free astrology consultation of their choice!

 

If you have any questions, leave me a comment or email me here

Put on your shiny new shoes and get ready to party with your fine self 🙂

Let’s Dance!

love always, litebeing

Fill Your Heart

David Bowie was truly an example of alchemy in action, a shape-shifter prophet who was unpredictable and impossible to contain. I am so happy to have been exposed to his music early in life. Spirit led me to share a beautiful piece of music that is as relevant today as when it was written. A more extensive post on his influence will appear in the near future.

wikipedia.org, public domain

While I was re-visiting some of my Bowie music, I came across the Fill Your Heart  track from Hunky Dory. The lyrics remind me so much of Matt Kahn’s teachings as well as those from A Course in Miracles. This album was released in 1971. His ideas pre-date both ACIM channeled material as well as Matt’s Love Revolution. I see great symmetry among these sources and such uncharacteristic joy in Bowie’s voice.  I was “ called ” to offer this song while in the shower. The shower never fails me!

“Fill Your Heart”

Fill your heart with love today
Don’t play the game of time
Things that happened in the past
Only happened in your Mind
Only in your Mind-Forget your Mind
And you’ll be free-yea’
The writing’s on the wall
Free-yea’. And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are Free of thoughts unpure [sic]
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it Free.

 

Happiness is happening
The dragons have been bled
Gentleness is everywhere
Fear’s just in your Head
Only in your Head
Fear is in your Head
Only in your Head
So Forget your Head
And you’ll be free
The writing’s on the wall
Free-yea’. And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are free of thoughts unpure
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it Free!!Free-yea’. Yeah-yeah-yeah, yeah-yeah-yeah [repeat]

 

While not everyone was a fan or even familiar with Bowie’s music, to many of us he was a visionary, otherworldly being who helped usher in a new way of self-expression.

3 Years in the Making

Fireworks_red_(1)

Happy 1-11 everyone!

Happy 3rd birthday aka blogiversary to litebeing chronicles!

It is triple exciting that my 3rd blogging year is on 1-11. It is 3 on steroids.

Number 3 is the essence of the Trinity  –  mind, body, spirit and is the threefold nature of Divinity.  The number 3 symbolizes the principle of ‘growth’ and signifies that there is a synthesis present – that imagination and an outpouring of energy is in action. To learn more about the magic of 3, please visit this blast from the past.

I wish I had completed this draft yesterday because today’s news of David Bowie’s passing shocked and saddened me. He is one of my favorite musicians/performers and I recently learned he is also an Aquarius rising!  I have been looking to see how this startling news connects with this third year of my blogging journey. This is what I have discovered:

Creativity is a life force and all material beings were created into this form. David Bowie apparently knew his condition was terminal and kept using his creative spark to bring more music onto the planet. As I lived my life this year one thought made a regular appearance ” I can use this for my blog.” I sometimes see myself existing here simply to blog. There is a very compelling quality inherent in my desire to write. While 3 years seems like a short amount of time, I don’t really remember my life prior to taking this step. While I hold many of my memories intact, my life has changed so incredibly. I doubt I even fully understand the impact of this change. Or ever will understand. I am becoming more and more comfortable sitting with mystery. While my curiosity is as fertile as ever, my willingness to receive information at the Divine Time has increased.

We breathe, grow, see, hear, touch, taste, love, fear, learn, forget, remember, awaken, breathe…..

Until we cease to breathe.

I want to continue my stay on Earth with love in my heart and creation emanating from each heartbeat. I can choose to say 2015 was a year of illness and loss or I can choose to say that all is well NOW. Both are true.

Around ten years ago another wise Capricorn advised me during a rough patch to ask myself how I was feeling in that very moment. What a revelation it was to discover that I was worry-free ( peaceful) in the now. I was surprised at the time to see how effective mindfulness can be. It is as effective now as it was over ten years ago. I am grateful that this very moment is all that is. My moods seem to shift much more quickly nowadays and without much effort. This awareness brings me comfort and leaves me enthusiastic about what else awaits me. Perhaps my vibration is rising?

These are the posts from the WordPress Year in Review report that got the most views in 2015.

  1. Scorpio ~ ahhhhh
  2. A Whole New World?
  3. Time Machine Blogging Challenge: It is Off the Chain. Whadya Waiting for? Join Us!
  4. Mosaic and Pointillism Art as Unity Consciousness
  5. Before Midnight – I’ll love you long after you’re gone, gone, gone 

It is interesting that they are all very different in focus – freeform astro- poetry, music, trippy time travel, art, and film. The Scorpio and Before Midnight blogs are from 2013, which means they have staying power. This makes me smile…

This report also indicates that readers respond to a variety of content. I expect to still blog about art, music, film, books, pop culture, and astrology, and much more; typically as they apply to everyday magic. Some may wonder why I do not have a conventional astrology blog. The reasons are many, but here is the short answer: I prefer to share astro-musings as it suits me. I am not content to report on every astro-happening. It is not my style. There are so many writers who do a fantastic job in this vein. I rather wait for inspiration to strike and then an idea is made manifest.

I am a story-teller. At least today I am. Tomorrow I may shift into another mode. I once fancied myself a novelist, poet, screenwriter. I love to tell stories and evoke questions and discussion. This is my thing. I am so grateful that people respond to my writing. It is also incredible how I never know what becomes ” popular” among my posts. Rather than create to please others, I pray that what interests me will find its way to those who may benefit. I write because I must. It is a way of being. I never take it for granted for it is a gift.

A heartfelt thanks to Matt Wullenweg for creating WordPress. Happy 32nd Birthday Matt! Thank you for allowing me to say Hello World exactly 3 years ago today. I also want to acknowledge my fellow bloggers and readers who influence me tremendously. A striking photograph, a passing comment, or a clever turn of a phrase may send me off into an alternate universe where ideas are born. Thank you for being you and sharing this lifetime with me.

What does the future hold? I honestly don’t know. I am drawn to more discussions on ascension, everyday magic, the awakening process, unity consciousness,the love revolution of Matt Kahn, the lure of our dreams, and how inconvenience and risk-taking change my nature. I am blessed with a treasure trove of ideas that keep glowing during my darkest hours. Thank you for glowing with me.

namaste, litebeing

As a tribute to David Bowie and all artists everywhere, I will end with this anthem of my youth that still raises my heart rate whenever I hear it :

Spirit clearly approves ( look at the length of the video). What have I been saying for 3 years? Magic is everpresent.

Moon in Pisces Kinda Mood

Photo812While watching a retrospective on David Letterman ( a very Mercury retro activity) the song Changes by David Bowie was playing during the final montage. Tears of joy and sadness were streaming down my face and I felt flooded with energy. The song is one of my all-time favorites and it triggered an emotional frenzy. I went with the tide and let the various colors of moods flow through me. I was enjoying the moment, drinking it in and letting it be.

Then I had an instant realization arise in me. I was aware of the gift of being so emotionally receptive AND having a place to express all my colors. I can use my sensitivity as a canvas for the world to paint on. Or just gaze at in wonder. Gratitude was dancing within me and I was on cloud 9.

Photo814Self-expression is a topic I write about often on this blog. The ability to communicate is precious and often obscured or underutilized. Society often frowns on self-expression, either directly or indirectly. Fortunately forums like this make it possible and affordable for virtually anyone ( virtually, get it? ) to drum up the courage to write a poem, post a photo, tell their story, create a recipe, tell a joke. In some ways, the product is less important than the process. The act of typing is so therapeutic in itself. Some have told me that I am so brave to have a blog. I don’t agree. I think it is bolder to hide oneself and take a chance that all will turn out alright in the end. It is so unhealthy to hide and pretend that living safely is enough. Bold is not always smart in this instance.

Boy will I miss David Letterman. But that is a subject for another time. No point in waiting for sharing this video though: changes

Funny how I hated changing when I became enamored with this song. It became my theme song, if people actually have theme songs. Now I am more at peace with change. It really is the only healthy way to do this beinginabody thing.

If you wonder what a moon in Pisces feels like, I would suggest you reread this post, listen to the video link, or gaze upon another photo, like the one below.
