Cleansing Waters...
Reflections on Invisibility and Appearances...
Edits of history...
Edits of ways of being...
Primordial Being...

Letting go and coming back together in authentic ways...
Sacred Stories from the No-Longer-Silent Sisters... its been an interesting 24 hours.

Saturn Return AKA Cat's Eulogy

As part of my Spiritual Director program we were tasked with writing and presenting our own eulogies... I wrote this from the perspective of what I would want my daughter to know about the world, if I wasn't around to tell her myself. <3

Part I : I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I have done.

The right attitude, 
compassion, genius, 
goes way beyond facing yourself, beyond survival.
Free your mind. 
Chance. 
Be inspired Pure Heart.

The power of loving kindness. 
The power of inner integrity. 
The power of youthful spirit. 
The power of communications. 
The power of crossroad miracles. 
The power of sensitivity. 
The power of beyond. 

Keep it alive.

Times are changing. Embracing. 

The opportunity of finding her own voice. 
The opportunity of finding her own song. 
The opportunity of love in all. 
The opportunity of ascendence, a celebration of love. 
Definitely a blessing. 

The strength of a big dream. 
Big growth. 
Big surrender. 

Surrender.

Cosmic connection. It’s up to me to start living.
Transform health and wellness (mind, body, soul). 
Peacemakers. Learn, speak, live. 
The inspiration is you. 
Inform, educate, motivate. Refresh, relax, rejuvenate. 

Life and death in every moment. 
Happiness. Awakened life. 
Time well spent. Sacred journeys.

All you have to do is live. It’s easy.
Truth is, in the end, there will be only I love you.


Part II : Wound Song

I have learned the following:
Its not always wise to speak the truth at the moment when you know your audience heart is closed. Patience. 
Be the thing you need. Be what you wish to see in the world. Be your own saviour. 
Living your life in a spiritual way will make people notice you. Be aware of the message you are sending. 
Walk in peace, be prepared to defend it if necessary. Pray it is never necessary.
Be good to yourself. Come home/check-in. 
Know your limitations, accept them as reality, challenge them to find a new reality. 
Accept help when needed. 
Love honestly.
If you listen, there will be wonderful stories. 
Hope. 
Respect. 
Thank your water. 
Feel the fear and fucking do it anyways.

Part III: Love and Gratitude in the face of.... Life, the Universe and Everything.

I am greatful for these rare and brief moments of chaos and confusion. Then by simply surviving them, are transformed to true sources of power.
I am greatful for my wound which taught me compassion and how to be a great healer. 
I am greatful to be surrounded by people who nurture Soul. 
I am a greatful, joyous, lucky, loving, peaceful, playful, whole and healing Soul. 

I love you Bean!

Love is a Virus, let it infect everyone you meet.

*Satyagraha is a synthesis of the Sanskrit words Satya (meaning "truth") and Agraha ("insistence", or "holding firmly to") Satyagraha is also termed a “universal force,” as it essentially “makes no distinction between kinsmen and strangers, young and old, man and woman, friend and foe. ~ Gandhi

Mars in Scorpio
"Real living, to Mars in Scorpio, is all about accepting challenges and making changes.
Mars in Scorpio natives love to challenge themselves to do the impossible. They throw themselves into what they decide to do with concentrated energy and awesome willpower. These people make formidable opponents, although often quietly so. They keep their cool and their equilibrium on the surface. Below the surface may be another story, and they are unlikely to easily let you in. Mars in Scorpio has the potential to exploit others—these people see through others, and rely heavily on their gut feelings." ~ Cafe Astrology

Mars in the 2nd House
"Mars in the second house energises someone’s earning capacities. As long as Mars is in a sign that he feels fairly comfortable with (ie. Scorpio) someone with this placement certainly has the skills and knowledge and energy to accumulate some capital wealth, collect valuable art and other treasuries.
The 2nd house also rules one’s speech, so this is an excellent placement for professions where the voice is what others remember the most such singing, preaching if Pisces or Sagittarius is strong in the chart or public speaking... On the one hand, Mars in the 2nd house makes someone sound very enthusiastic, energised, inspirational and dynamic and on the other, someone with this placement can sound abrupt, impatient and a little rude and poorly timed. Sometimes saying the wrong things at the wrong time can be a typical Mars-in-the-second-house trait if there are no mitigating factors." ~ BrightStarAstrology

A series of artworks created to help me better understand my natal astrology and the powerful possibilities in my birth timing. For those of you interested in such things about moi: Chiron in Taurus8th House

"Chiron in Taurus reflects a wound of neglect. At some point in life, they felt that they didn't get enough of something, whether it was material things, or emotional, mental or spiritual attention. They feel unfulfilled and undernourished in some way. It all boils down to their sense of worth. Many people shop to fill these kinds of voids
 to heal they need to look beyond this quick fix to their inner need. They shouldn't deny themselves the simple pleasures of life
 they need to learn to value themselves and treat themselves the way they want others to treat them. Love is all around. They were born to love and be loved. If they learn to value themselves, others will value them also. They should take time for introspection." alwaysastrology.com

 "Chiron in the Eighth House: Chiron is associated with the emotional wounds we receive early on in our lives. The sign Chiron is in will dominate but the house placing will show in which area the personality is motivated and into which they will put their efforts. In the eighth house, it may indicate losses through the death of loved ones but also gains through births. Personal desires will be very important to you, to the point of 'anything goes'. You will have psychic abilities that, when trained, will be a great force for good. You could be a mystic with great insight." CafeAstrology.com

Dynamic Heart

Dynamic Heart

Hello Universe, It’s me Cat… Again…

It’s January 1,2014… and from what all the astrology folks are saying also a powerful Capricorn new moon, full of possibilities. With that In mind I declare the following:

I welcome back my rejected spiritual gifts, sacred abilities, and lost inner-selves. My heart is dynamic and mighty. I am full of hope and peace. I use discernment and wisdom in my choices. I continue to transform, grow, and learn. It shall be thus for me, for this is the path I choose to walk every day.

Peace and Blessings to those of you with a Dynamic Heart where ever you may be. ~ Cat

***Dynamic 1817, as a term in philosophy; 1827 in the sense “force producing motion,” from Fr. dynamique (1762), from Ger. dynamisch, introduced by Leibnitz 1691 from Gk. dynamikos “powerful,” from dynamis “power,” from dynasthai “be able to have power,” of unknown origin. The figurative sense of “active, potent, energetic” is from 1856. Related: Dynamically.

Guides and Guardians : Fortification

The process of these drawings is random and intuitive... I will start in one area drawing random shapes that fit together... and then move onto another area entirely... eventually an image or images become emergent. November 2014
