August 2022: A Cosmic Turning Point

August is a turning point in our cosmic story. This post and the astrology report it contains celebrates it.

In this report the audio version I made a date. I listed the full moon and Venus into Leo a week earlier date wise than it actually happened. This is because I was following my soul and the Universe as opposed to a calendar. We worked the frequency 7 days early on this one to plant it. That said, it was wrong for what this report was meant to be. I apologize.


We, the human beings of planet Earth, are at a graduation moment where all of our work is starting to ground in this reality. Mars and Uranus forming conjunction, in addition to the movements of Saturn take center stage. This is a moment of freedom from a harmonic space where planets like these were used in a harder harmonic sense ‘against’ us. It is also a moment where we get to experience a more-pure connection to ourselves, this planet, and Universe. Without the obstructions.

In mid-July, a fresh energy started flowing. You heard me announce it along with the Pluto Cosmic birth on this page. That was a signpost that we had looked toward, knowing that once we met it there would be a change in frequency. Right on cosmic flow, things began to shift. Things started moving quickly including dissolving governments, emotional baggage, relations. All of it. Healing was made in leaps and bounds. A wave of it, in fact, has swept throughout our collectives.

 In August, we see that wave of healing grow stronger and more powerful. These are moments where those seeking clarity will find it. These are moments were those seeking Universal love within themselves will connect to it. This is a month of deep healing and awareness that will prepare us to launch ever higher in September. All that happens is related to what came before, yet more clear. This is exciting.

This month, a fresh energy is present because of the great personal work of so many people. This is a celebration moment. The planetary alignments of this month will be an important part of how we access it!

We are ready.

Having said that, August is also the type of month where planetary frequency has the power to bring things up powerfully that require our attention. Quickly. It is up to us to remember that is what is happening and to handle it with grace. Rapidly moving energy does not always feel ‘nice’. However, as I always say, there is plenty we can do to put ourselves in places to manage it. Even better, to power our lives.

This post is to announce this energy and also to invite you to listen to a podcast where I outline the significance of this cosmic moment. Delivered in the form of an ‘astrology report’, I speak about: a) the cosmic trajectory we are emerging from from, b) why it is significant, and c) how to work with the alignments this month to harness the fresh energy to improve your life.

When I think about the astrology for this month, the key things that stand out to me are:

-The potential for soul freedom in new and different ways that is not as obstructed from distorted energy as what we had been experiencing.
– Moving away from forms of spiritual manipulation that was happening via planetary alignments.
– Clearing of the decks in relations. Recognizing where stagnant energy was creating walls.
– Healing the masculine energy spectrum and welcoming its new high harmonic form into our lives.
– Rapid soul growth and a recognition of the important of self-connection.
– Seeing things clearly, even if we do not like what we see.
– Moving on from the last epoch into a new way of being.
– Finishing threads of long worked projects and seeing them pay off.

This astrology report is ‘long’ because it features a ‘recap’ in segment two that brings us through the harder harmonic alignments and healing process we experienced during December through March 2022 (as well as before). I speak about things in-depth here, including an update on Jesus (from ‘astrology of Jesus’) and how, during those months, many people met the harshest strands of energy in our spectrum. Moving from Saturn Square Uranus (2020-2021), then through the Mars, Pluto, and Saturn conjunctions, we have faced the strangest things.  In July, we saw the ‘dissolve’ start coming in full play. That meant in the world but also, internally. Big waves of healing were initiated and will continue to be.

Hocus Pocus 2: Magical Lessons for Life (review) Crow Medicine: Spirituality for the 21st Century

Hocus Pocus 2 has finally been released. After almost 30 (eek) years, we finally get to see the Sanderson Sisters back in action. They did not disappoint. Hocus Pocus 2 is a delightful sequel that fuses powerful allegory about how magic and energy works and lessons to take on board for real life practicing (and non-practicing) people alike. Films are powerful teachers. When we watch them, we are brought into worlds and topics that we do not often think about. Being a person who lives very much in the world of 'Halloween' as part of my everyday life, I deliver this podcast/film review of 'Hocus Pocus 2' from a magical point of view. Top 5 Magic Lessons for Life from Hocus Pocus 2 *Spoiler alert in the podcast episode but not this summary, which is kept with few details for that specific intention. I do not want to ruin the surprise for anyone. 1) If there is a cultural story, tradition or myth about the danger of a place or a practice, listen to it. If you do not, some form of evil may arise and try to take over the earth, or at the very least, your town. 2) Souls are a valuable commodity. Take care of yours. There is a reason trying to take your soul is a theme in so many movies. 3) Oldschool tools like smudge and salt work. Even against very powerful magic. 4) Sacred objects have sentience****** 5) Friends and enemies are not always who you think they will be. Not all witches are like the Sanderson sisters and mean you harm. Not all people who show themselves to be your allies 'are'. Discernment over who a person is and what their intentions are is important. (Do not just give out your trust, but do not cast all people who do energy work negatively).

I have two brand new (related) learning opportunities that are able to access right now. One is a course that you can take and the other is a book that is abbreviated from it. The former is a great option for people who do well with the ability to watch detailed instructional videos, receive additional guidance, and like to have a place to 'log-in' that is a digital school. The latter is great for people who are on a tight budget, feel they prefer this level of engagement.
