    Time to turn the page!

    Today’s New Moon in expressive Leo is strongly influenced by Venus, symbol of abundance, money, relationships, and what we enjoy in life. Venus is where we find our happiness, which generally revolves around relationships and values, so now we are likely to explore new ways of going forward with people and money. It’s a promising fresh start compared to the…

    The yoga holiday from hell

    I'm moving this month so I won't be traveling, and since much of my attention is focused on the comings and going of my kids and the contents of my home, I decided to share a holiday story from my book. It helps to remind me that it's not always a bad thing to just stay at home.

    Momentum and growth

    We are six months away from a big pivot point in the greater scheme of things. Old patterns - personal, social, individual, collective - are evidently dysfunctional and need to be interrupted. Eclipses always interrupt patterns one way or another, so try releasing old ways and habits in a conscious manner which responds to what you already sense needs updating.

    Separation Anxiety

    Our human experience shows us the demands and difficulties of life are real on the level of day-to-day experience and most (though not all) require some form of response (action) on our part. We all know the solution to relieving this pressure will be found in our more high-minded or “spiritual” nature, above all dealing with our personal psychological and…

    What’s my Karma?

    “Bad karma” is simply stuff happening that we don’t like. In reality there is no "good" or "bad", just things happening in response to an amalgamation of prior actions, some which we can see clearly, and others which we will never be aware of.

    Eclipsing the old you

    Tomorrow (Tuesday) brings us a Solar eclipse in Cancer (at 21:15 Brussels time). We are all clearing out and clarifying our relationship to our past, our work, our partners, our family, and to all the stuff we have accumulated along the way.

    A Meaningful Full Moon

    Today’s full moon gives us a much-needed optimistic and inspiring energy. With the summer solstice coming on Friday a new season begins and we can enjoy the light and energy of this solar high point. By recognising that our existence depends on the Sun we always have something to be grateful for, regardless of our beliefs or sense of spirituality.

    Bearing Trauma

    It's important for us to keep in mind that the mass murders and abuses like those of the Nazi regime are not only historical events; this delusion of otherness and violent disconnection continues today in various forms and to varying degrees all around us, and each episode in communities around the world leads to individual and collective trauma that wounds…

    Truth or Dare?

    For all anyone knows, nothing is. Everything has to be taken on trust; truth is only that which is taken to be true. It’s the currency of living. There may be nothing behind it, but it doesn’t make any difference so long as it is honoured. One acts on assumptions. What do you assume? The Player, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are…

    Better late than never!

    Everything happens in cycles. If we can control our desires and see them as the drives that lead us towards more suffering sooner or later, likely dragging other people towards suffering along with us, then we can slow down enough to live at a pace that allows us to evolve towards a more satisfying rhythm with life itself - for…
