The Suspense of Suspension

30 Jun

Once again we’re in big upcoming astrological movements. I’m so thrilled about the wonderful news on Marriage Equality here in the States and ironically it comes JUST as the planets are starting to shift again after a prolonged period of suspension. So I shared some info about all this during last week’s Living Outrageous Openness […]

With gratitude to Lord Ganesh, who both BRINGS the obstacles as needed and REMOVES them in the sweep of an arm (or trunk) once they’ve served their purpose.

The Divine Road

15 Feb

She finally had a companion she could trust in the Divine. She wondered if I’d comment.
