Dear Anne,

It’s been an intense month, hasn’t it.  I’ve had an “aha” or two, so naturally, I’m gonna share them now!

Here’s what’s inside:

  1. The 2008/2010/2012 connection: Changing of the Hearth
  2. The “Ain’t It Awful” Game
  3. Podcast:  Anne’s lecture for IONS:  Dancing with Archetypes
  4. Past Life Journal… a new beginning
  5. Astro-remedy book
  6. How to reach me, get a consultation, etc. (please do!)

Hope you’ve found a place to stay cool.


Here’s what I’ve been thinking:  The powerful planets lining up in repeated collision patterns this summer are important, I know, because they are all crossing “Zero Cardinal” in the tropical zodiac: The World Point.  But of course, I’m also a Vedic astrologer, using the sidereal zodiac.  In that system, these planets are playing around 23 degrees of mutable signs.  So why do we consider these important degrees?

Because….  These are the cornerstones of the earth in time.  The planets of this summer are crossing and recrossing the solstice and equinox points: The four corners of the year.  The foundation stones of Earth.  Solstices and equinoxes link our planet to the sun and moon and solar system.  They measure our earthly calendar, orienting us in both time and space.   THESE are the points that are being rocked this year.

The planets involved in this pattern (Pluto, Uranus, Saturn and sometimes the faster planets) were tangled up with each other in the mid 1960’s as well.  Certainly those were years of tumult, change, and new ideas entering the zeitgeist.  But at that time none of these big planets were crossing the Solstice/Equinox points-what I’ll be calling the “cornerstones” here.

The Mayans describe the end of a world age as a “changing of the hearth”.  Suddenly I’m seeing that they are speaking quite literally.  The cornerstones of our understanding of time and space are very much our spiritual “hearth”.  And the summer of 2010 is the peak point of applying metaphorical planetary sledge-hammers to the cornerstones.

To put this into an even larger perspective, let’s look at some more issues of the Mayan system.  (click to continue reading)

2.  The “Ain’t It Awful” Game

Angels of AbrahamOne of the most insidious parts of this economic and ecological downturn is the way it has sapped the optimism and energy of entire groups of people.  Americans appear to have lost their iconic sense of optimism and purpose.   For a group to pull together cohesively, it needs a sense of purpose:  whatever we may think of the morality of “Manifest Destiny” in the 19th century, it gave the nation a sense of mission and purpose that created optimism and possibility in the (white) citizenry.  John F. Kennedy’s mission to the moon did the same thing for the entire country in the 1960’s.  We need a sense of purpose.But every one of us is being trained by the media to look for the “worst case scenario.”   Oil in the gulf?  Worst case scenario: end of the world.   Financial crisis-worst case scenario?  end of the world.  New diseases-worst case scenario?  end of the world.   Spreading fear may “sell”, but it’s not news at all.  The worst case scenario will always be the end of the world by various dreadful means.  I can understand the thinking that this might motivate people to change things, but negativity is NOT really a motivator.  It’s a demotivator.

My teacher (Hugh Martin) used to stress how much we waste productive energy by playing what he called “The Ain’t-It-Awful Game”.   (click here to read more)

3. Podcast: IONS LECTURE, June 22, 2010by (yours truly) (Click to listen).
Learning the Dance Steps to Life:  Recognizing Archetypal Energy Patterns and Learning How Not To Get Your Toes Tromped On.
Have you ever had a day where you were so confident you felt like you could do anything?  Have you ever felt burdened by responsibilities or fatigue that simply won’t go away?  Have you ever laid awake night after night while your mind spins like a gerbil in a cage?  Have you ever felt like your life just entered a fog-bank, and you can’t see where you’re going and lose all sense of direction?  Have you ever felt like everything in your life was spinning out of control and anything you do to “fix” it just makes it worse?  These are all signatures of specific archetypal energy patterns, and when we don’t learn the archetype’s dance, we can get out toes tromped on.

These questions and more apply to archetypal energy patterns the world is encountering this year.  And you’ve encountered at least a few of them in your lives already.

This lecture is not about astrology, although astrology offers us the archetypes of planetary energies to hang a story on.  This lecture is about recognizing energy systems with at least the precision of recognition weather fronts.  When you learn to activate your inner observer, learn to recognize the system you’ve encountered, and learn the alternate ways to utilize the energy pattern, you can turn lemons into lemonade, or turn a blizzard into a cozy encounter by a fireplace.

The music is already playing.  Are you ready to learn the dance?

4. Time Travels: My journals of travels through past lives and other experiences…

I’m beginning to post a series of my  time travel/past life experiences, which have occurred over the past 30 years.  I’ve only posted 2 so far, but will be adding to them.  Below is the beginning to the first posting (and the first experience)  To read others, check the Time Travels heading at
First Experience:  It was the early 1980’s when I first started reading about past lives and recovering memories of them.  These were pretty traumatic years in my life.  My dad died in early 1981 and my marriage was a mess.  In 1984 my husband gave me an ultimatum:  Move out and give him space to get his head together, or he’d simply file for divorce and force the issue.  I was addicted to this patently dysfunctional relationship, and I was still fighting to keep it, so I moved into an apartment complex close to my work. One evening, lying in bed in the early evening in abject misery, I asked to see a lifetime that would shed light on the relationship between me and my husband.  I wasn’t meditating, and can’t explain how I was simply “dropped into” a very clear vision.  Oddly, the images that came did not directly answer my question at all.  They simply showed me a different time, place, and life experience.
