Here in northern Indiana, we are (finally!) feeling the return of Spring! The sun is out more often, the temps are warming, and little green things are starting to poke up out of the ground. Ahhhh.... I love Winter, too, but I have had enough of the dark, cold, and quiet for this year. I … Continue reading Joyfullness – Spring and the Heart Chakra
Although we are already 11 days into March, I still want to share this energy forecast from Kari Samuels. I love her gentle, upbeat approach to all the changes happening for us right now. As many of you will already be aware, Uranus moved into Taurus on March 6th, and there was a new moon … Continue reading March Came in Like a Lion
Today marks the 16th anniversary of my wedding day to the man who saved my life. We met when we were both at one of the lowest points in our lives. Both of us were suicidal, trying to figure out how to live in a world that did not seem to understand us, without benefit … Continue reading Excerpt from a Love Story
Happy Saturday, everyone! You'll likely notice some changes underway at this blog in the next few weeks. The biggest change so far is the name: Betwixt. I chose this because I feel as though I live only partly in this world and partly in a lot of other worlds. Acceptance of my role as a … Continue reading Winds of Change
Just a quick little post about an experience I had over this last weekend. My dad, from whom I have been estranged most of my life, has recently begun showing up for me in ways I had always needed him to. This past weekend, that manifested as a trip to Georgia to see my only … Continue reading Unfiltered Thoughts on Belief and Joy
To follow along with my own sense of what is to come for me, personally in 2019, I wanted to share this very informative post from Laura Bruno’s blog, written by Timothy Glenn, astrologer and mystic extraordinaire, regarding what to expect within the world at large and what influences you might see in your personal life during 2019.
Today we have a special treat: Timothy Glenn’s 2019 report coming in well before the Chinese New Year! I’ve hyperlinked the earlier articles he references. It’s always fun to look back on how predictions unfolded across linear time.
Personally, I’ve been feeling Saturn in Capricorn in a major way, as Saturn’s been crossing and hovering over my Capricorn North Node. As Tim mentions, even if you don’t have any obvious Capricorn in your chart, you’re still going to feel these energies in at least some area(s) of life. Both 2019 and 2020 feature a whole bevy of potent astrological alignments. Whew! Excellent times for those who’ve diligently done their Shadow Work, and a chance to awaken for those who haven’t yet … Here’s Timothy’s report:
2019: Welcome to the Reset
Perhaps you feel as though a gigantic hand with its index finger extended has descended from…

***Originally posted 11-2-2016, this showed up in my Facebook newsfeed today, and I thought it would be a great re-post, considering recent events. We really do create our own reality; it just seems that our shared reality could use some changes. I trust taht those are coming as we all individually change our perspective. ***
To paraphrase Albert Einstein, in life, you can see everything as a sign, or nothing as a sign.
When I was younger, I always hesitated to admit that I liked or disliked something, believed or disbelieved. Like most of us, I feared ridicule, ostracization, being labelled “uncool”. I was nebulous to others and to myself, undefined, simply a mirror of whatever stood before me.
There came a point, however, when I got tired of that. I couldn’t even remember what I had loved before I started to hide it all. I wasn’t sure anymore what…

I hope this beautiful share from my sweet friend, Dawn, will remind you of how powerful just simple hug can be. Hug your loved ones, your friends, pat hands, touch elbows and shoulders…we all need more gentle, kind human touch in our lives.
I visited a dear friend that’s in a nursing home. I usually go once a week. The last few times I’ve visited her I felt such empathy for her. She was asking if I had spoken to her daughter at all recently. I told her no I hadn’t. She then went on to tell me how lonely she was.
As she did I was petting her on her arm, her hands, her shoulder, the side of her face and top of her head. Her tears flowed down her face from deep within. She told me how much it meant to her to have me pet her. She spoke of how she wished her family would do that for her and how she felt like no one loved her. I dont know if that’s true of her family, I believe they love her, she doesn’t always remember.
