Happy New Moon in Taurus! And, welcome to all of our new MoonLetter subscribers!
“The New Moon sends pure Moon energy onto Earth until She starts to reflect the Sun’s light again. You are always Light. Let your Light shine.”
This week in May is a great time to become aware of what is going on in the heavens to support what you are trying to accomplish on the Earth plane. And we have lots of fun plans to share!
We are in the middle of a Mercury retrograde period – a time when the path of Planet Mercury appears from Earth as if it is traveling backward. Many people panic because they have heard that ‘Mercury retrograde is BAD!’ But nothing that happens in the Cosmos has to be bad – what is more important is how you use the information in your daily life.
When Mercury goes retrograde, which it does for about 3 weeks 3 times per year, we have to be careful about communication activities. Have you ever had a time when emails/computers/text messages go awry and your friends are having the same problem? It might be a Mercury retrograde period. Richard isn’t receiving text messages at the moment, sometimes in a group message where I receive mine and he doesn’t get his! Don’t panic!
While this is a time to re-read before signing, re-view before sending, and re-think before speaking, it can also be a very creative time because you are being asked to slow down and pay attention to signs. Hang in there – Mercury starts going forward again May 22 at 9:20 am Eastern Daylight Time (EDT)!
Today, May 9, is also a special Mercury day. The planet is taking a rare trip across the surface of the Sun today! This happens only 13 times in a century – Next time in 2019 and again in 2032. With Mercury and the Sun hanging out together today it is a good day to check your inner communications – are you being totally honest with yourself, especially about who you really are, what you really want?
We are just beyond the May 6 New Moon that invited us to avoid lying to ourselves. The message is that ‘might does not make right, that only by turning toward the light of truth can we become genuinely powerful, creative and peaceful and avoid re-enacting a violent history.’ (The Mountain Astrologer magazine)
Now is the time to focus on moving forward. Get clear about your dreams and visions for yourself and your life. What are your core values? Are your actions in alignment with them? Take stock and make the shifts needed.
To help you with this, I am teaching about Abundance, Prosperity and Money on Tuesday, May 24 at 7:00 pm EDT. Would you like some guidance and wisdom about your relationship to finances? I’ll be channeling teachings from The Divine Feminine and answering your questions. Join us in person or by phone on the 24th. Details are here
As you are doing your Spring Cleaning, reserve the date to join me at Richard’s Day of Qigong on June 18 in Annapolis, Maryland. I’ll be teaching about Feng Shui hints to help you move into Summer and we’ll be learning about healthy foods and the qigong practices that will support us in the seasonal transition. Check it out at QigongistheWay
Part of your Spring Cleaning should be a check up on the inside, to clear out those limiting beliefs and that negative self-talk that keeps you from living the life of your dreams. It can be helpful to set aside some time for Journaling or Meditating on what needs to be decluttered from the closet of your mind. I am still doing private mentoring sessions so contact me if you’d like some help with that clearing firstname.lastname@example.org
And get ready to release the old stuff for the Full Moon on May 21 at 5:14 pm EDT. To celebrate the Full Moon we will be in New York City and I’ll be doing a Conversation with The Other Side on Sunday, May 22 at 2:00 pm EDT in Manhattan. If you are in the NYC area, come join us IN PERSON! Of course, you can also join by telephone from anywhere. You can register here:Registration
May this Spring be a time when you are springing forward in your life. The flowers are blooming, the temperature is warming up (I hope!) and the days are getting longer.
Happy Springtime! And I hope you all had a wonderful Mothers Day, celebrating your Mother, you as Mother, and you as the creative Mother of your Dreams!

Who IS the Real You?
We all create personas that will keep us safe, or be what we think the other person wants, or hide the faults we believe that we have. These personalities are what the world sees because this is what we want them to see.
But who is the real you? Is it what you present to the world or is it something else? Are you the façade? Are you what you believe yourself to be? Or might you be something MORE?
In working with private clients for over 20 years I have learned that most of us hide our inner lights under the proverbial baskets most of the time. Usually we have chosen to do this because something in our history led us to believe that this was the only option. Someone criticized us or was threatened by our power. We did something that we didn’t want anyone to find out about. We wanted to fit into the family or the crowd or our peers so we played small so that no one would make us feel ‘left out.’
Well, it is time to stop this.
The You who made those choices was doing the best that he or she could do at the time. But NOW it is time to reclaim those parts of yourself that you have kept hidden from the world and, possibly, from yourself.
You can be Empowered without have power over others. You can be Smart without diminishing the intelligence of anyone else. You can be Strong without making anyone around you feel weak. You can be a Leader without anyone else feeling that they cannot also be a Leader.
You see, you are the Light.
It is as simple as that. You. Are. The. Light.
In a dark room it only takes one match to dispel the darkness. Be the match.
When others are feeling low, dismal, confused, ‘in the dark,’ you can bring the Light to them.
When you relax into being the Light it feels like a coming home. That is because you ARE Light. You don’t have to work at it. There is nothing for you to figure out. You can just Be Who You Really Are.
So let your Light shine. Stop trying to satisfy those around you by holding back or giving away your power. Examine your beliefs and release those that tell you you can’t do or be something. What have you decided that you can change now and decide something different, especially about yourself?
The world needs your Light. Drop the façade. Integrate your personas and be yourself. Ask for help if you don’t know how to do this.
I see you. You are the Light. Be who you really are.
