This Full Moon
If you feel like you are pushing a huge boulder up a steep hill on this Full Moon in Capricorn, blame it on retrograde Mercury, Jupiter, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Chiron. Ouch! Well, what other Full Moon could face this kind of struggle by shrugging its shoulders, and saying, "So what else is new?" Thank you Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, the great teacher of how to handle hardship, struggle and reality, with commitment, follow-through and guts. So though this is the Full Moon to celebrate goals and achievement, with this kind of planetary resistance to moving forward, we can also celebrate small steps, realistic goal-setting, and being successful when faced with tremendous limitations. Going forward has its right time and right place. This is the night to look within, connect with one's own sense of proper timing and trust the wisdom that arises from this kind of inquiry. Remember retrograde planets are ideal for inner work; especially retrograde Mercury.

This is the night to reach deep into your well of strength and decide that achieving your own inner peace is the only goal worth attaining at this moment in our human evolution. This Full Moon simultaneously uncovers our fear and reflects the solution to our fear: acting only from love, compassion, and doing the hard work of relieving the suffering of all sentient beings by achieving enlightenment and inner peace.

Restore Habeas & StopTorture ACLU protest in East Lansing

On Tuesday June 26th I attended the Restore Habeas & Stop Torture protest at Senator Stabenow's office on Lake Lansing Rd that was promoted by the Lansing/Jackson area ACLU, with further representation by the Greater Lansing Network Against War & Injustice (GLNAWI), Day of National Action to Restore Law & Justice, the Americans Against Escalation in Iraq (AAEI), and other local area organizations that came out. I met alot of very nice people and enjoyed showing up and giving my support to these important issues.
