Not that Feminine- Beg to Differ

“It’s just that you’re not that feminine.”

I beg to differ.

I’m feminine like a thunderstorm.

Feminine like the glint of a falcon talon.

Feminine like an ancient redwood.

Feminine like the orange glow of a grizzly bear in the sunset.

Feminine like a wolf on the hunt.

Feminine like decaying bones.

Feminine like the eye of an old whale.

Feminine like a roaring river.

Feminine like a sheer cliff overlooking a forest.

Feminine like a wildfire.

Feminine like a desert wind.

Feminine like a battle cry.

And yes.

Within my stones and bark and fur and fierce slit irises… I am as soft and enveloping as any woman who’s blood ever beat red.

This is the Sovereigness.

I am her.

We are her.

We are an age of woman who has come in, representing the medicine of the Wilds.

We are not built to actualize your sense of masculinity through your traditional idea of femininity.

We are built to bring in the voice of our Mother.

Which is why Earth herself screams in our veins.

So, if what you really mean is,

“Your femininity is overwhelming”,

Then I understand.

It is to me, too.

I adore this song , it’s very descriptive of my life experience and I adore turning people on to new things…

So I enjoyed this man’s experience .

I shared this song , these words as a message of love too many years ago.

I screamed these words in a padded room , after electrodes had raised the ” mania” that resulted from the chemicals in my brain 🧠 Totally rearranged by trauma , not mental illness , abuse , not mental illness, chemicals that induced behaviors of trauma ..DSM has that down as a mental illness .A very Corporate choice , so many prescription drugs , so many billable codes .

Destroying the social structure of society …

It’s ending .

I claimed and climbed my mountain ..I remain true to my core goals and ideals though I’m learning new things , less shadow is involved and quickly dispersed.

My challenges of home and heart will be resolved .

I reached the summit, I am home . I am grateful 🙏 🥲 for all that got me here but miniscule trauma nor drama will be allowed .

I trust each individual to reach their summit as they wake to love and end the cycles of shadow challenges .

Peace Love and Blessings 🙌

Ending Toxic Relationships : Anger /Self-Abandonment

Self-abandonment never leads to a positive outcome.

Not only does it teach people that they matter more than you do, it teaches your subconscious mind and wounded inner child that, as well.

Self-abandonment can look different for each individual, but here are some common examples:

  • Caving after that 11th hoover when you know how things will turn out
  • Modifying your own family dynamics to cater to someone you barely know
  • Believing someone when they say they’ll do better and be better when they’ve already proven to you that they’re a liar
  • Doing that uncomfortable thing in the bedroom and instead of securing the person you did it for, you learn it was all in vain
  • Canceling plans with friends and family for a flaky person who’s already bailed on you numerous times
  • Saying you like something when you don’t
  • Forgiving someone over and over after they’ve already shown you they don’t deserve forgiveness
  • You constantly give more than you receive
  • You repeatedly try to control a person or an outcome and give away all your energy and time in the process
  • You try to raise an adult when you already have minor children in the home
  • You constantly ignore your intuition or internal GPS

Healthy relationships don’t require you or ask you to abandon yourself. If you feel like this is something you need to do, it’s time to re-analyze your relationships and level of self-love.

Always thinking of you. Xo

Black Sheep

“The black sheep are the artists, visionaries and healers of our culture, because they are the ones willing to call into question those places which feel stale, obsolete, or without integrity. The black sheep stirs up the good kind of trouble. Her very life is a confrontation with all that has been assumed as tradition. Her being different serves to bring the family or group to consciousness where it has been living too long in the dark. As the idiom implies, she is the wayward one in the flock. Her life’s destiny is to stand apart. But paradoxically, it’s only when she honors that apartness that she finally fits in. The world needs your rebellion and the true song of your exile. In what has been banned from your life, you find a medicine to heal all that has been kept from our world. We must find the place within where things have been muted and give that a voice. Until those things are spoken, no truth can find its way forward. The world needs your unbelonging. It needs your disagreements, your exclusion, your ache to tear the false constructions down, to find the world behind this one.”⁣

“The Prophetess” • 2017/2020

Virgo Full Moon

The Full Moon in Virgo will be emanating a strong lunar energy that will be pulling our emotions to the surface and also delivering awareness and clarity – bringing abrupt but highly positive change.

We will all feel this moon’s intensity, regardless of our zodiac sign, however, those who were born under Virgo will feel it a little more intensely than others.

Virgo is a grounded Earth sign, so it is likely we will find ourselves being ‘pulled back down to Earth’ if there are areas of our life that we have been unrealistically fantasising about or simply living under an illusion.

We are currently going through a period where our entire belief systems are being questioned and where our perspective will dramatically be altering. This might be somewhat of a challenge, as Virgo doesn’t appreciate sudden change, so although we may be receiving numerous insights and we will be going through a radical awakening, it may feel a little uncomfortable to fully accept that all may not be as it once seemed.

Full Moons are always a time for releasing, and with this current energy there could never be a more optimum time to let go of anything unhealthy and depleting, particularly as we are about to experience the Equinox energies and enter Aries season – the start of a new astrological year. It’s also a good time for spring cleaning, clearing clutter, tying up loose ends and receiving long-awaited resolution or closure.

The lessons that have been presented to us since the beginning of Aries season last year, on March 21 2021, will be learned during this Moon phase, as we come to a greater understanding of why certain people played significant parts in our lives, and we piece prominent events together. When we make sense of all that has occurred during the past twelve months and illusions dissipate, all associated karma will also be released.

Our priorities will be changing and we will recognise where our energy is being drained, so it won’t just be our physical world that receives a shake-up, we will also be going through major internal, emotional shifts.

This is an intense phase that will cleanse anything that feels toxic in our lives, which includes bad habits, unhealthy thought patterns, reactive behaviours, outdated beliefs, and irrational fear-based thoughts and feelings that drain our energy and leave us feeling anxious and burnt out.

Also, ties that energetically bind us to people or situations that are detrimental to us or that limit us in any way will easily be severed during this period, and we will feel the freedom to finally walk away with peace, love, compassion, and forgiveness in our hearts. In particular, we will feel the urge to remove ourselves from dynamics with anyone who consistently provokes arguments or those who are aggressive, controlling, manipulative, deceptive, judgmental, overly critical, and generally abusive.

We will likely be feeling nostalgic due to the accumulation of emotional cosmic energy, so we may find ourselves looking back at our past in an attempt to find answers. This might look like ruminating on why certain relationships ended or why we are struggling to let go of relationships that are shrouded in confusion and heartache. Fortunately, our intuition is at an all-time high during this Full Moon, so it’s the perfect time to go within and listen carefully to our inner voice.
We will be wanting to speak our truth, and as Virgo is also associated with healing, forgiveness and accountability, this could be the perfect time to dive inwards and attend to inner wounds that need attention.

We may also find we feel compelled to reach out to make amends with those we have unresolved conflict with, and that we are ready to communicate in a clearer and a more open and honest way. Fortunately, Virgo is highly sensitive, compassionate and empathetic, and has a need to understand others on the deepest level, so it is likely any tension will be effortlessly cleared and stronger bonds will be created.

Virgo is ruled by Mercury so we may find we are more in our headspace than heartspace over these coming days and we will likely be far more logical and rational – not allowing the heart to overrule the head. We might find this a little challenging, due to the moon being in close opposition to Neptune, the planet of dreams, ideation and delusion. Therefore, we could find we quickly switch between believing in the illusions we have created and recognising where we have been optimistically fooling ourselves.

There may be temporary blurred lines between our imagination and the truth, particularly concerning how we have viewed some of our closest relationships and we may not receive full clarity on everything we are feeling and seeing until after the Full Moon has passed. However, we will constantly be receiving signs that some of our long-held beliefs have been romanticised to create a comfort zone for when we needed an escape from reality.

It is highly likely our dreams, or possibly nightmares, may be more realistic and intense, so it’s worth being aware that it could be during sleep that we experience the greatest amount of turmoil. Whether we remember our dreams or not, what we dream about can significantly influence how we feel throughout the day and point towards what is weighing heavily in our thoughts or hearts.

Over the next 24 hours we may notice we are overthinking and over-analysing more than normal, and this can lead to feeling wired and a little on edge. It is vital to recognise when this is happening and take a step back to process all the new data running at full speed through our heads.

Virgo is practical and hard-working and helps us become more organised and productive, so we will likely find we awaken over these next few days with a burst of energy, wanting to rearrange and restructure major aspects of our life and home.

When we let go of items we are no longer aligned with we will instantly feel lighter, freer and less overwhelmed as certain objects can carry unhappy memories and low vibrations.
We will also have the desire for more stability and balance, so could find we reassess job opportunities, our home and relationship dynamics, or finances. We will likely also be feeling highly curious and eager to learn, and could find ourselves researching subjects in depth, and possibly wanting to make major changes on our career path.

Virgo is known for having a deep desire to be of service, so it is possible we will have a strong impulse to help with humanitarian causes, volunteering and offering assistance to those around us. We might even feel the urge to sign up for an educational course in care, mentoring or nursing sectors.

If there have been blockages preventing our creativity and aspirations we will notice we are easily able to overcome them, and will be feeling more energised and inspired than ever before. Virgo energy brings with it high expectations, and can bring up issues surrounding control, criticism and seeking perfection, so it is important not to be too harsh on ourselves, and rather than forcing anything, just surrendering to allow a natural flow.

Virgo can bring in the need for solitude and peace, and we may be tempted to spend the day, or part of it, free from interruption and focusing on much-needed self love and care so we can feel more grounded, harmonious and centered.

This Full Moon marks the end of a chapter or the completion of a significant phase in our lives and an exciting restart. It brings closure, transformation, rebirth, and the manifestation of things we have been working toward. It is a time where we can reflect on what no longer serves us so that, with gratitude, we can release old energy and create a clean, brand new space to begin again.
