Engaging the Mystery and Knowing What Sustains Us, FM Nov. 14, 2016

This is not only a Supermoon, one of the closest Full Moons since 1946, but as well, at this time every year, with a Full Moon in Taurus – is one of the most powerful. Both Scorpio and Taurus are signs and energies to do with power. Scorpio Sun is about all of the Great Mysteries of Birth, Death, Sex and  deep changes, leading to Transformation and Rebirth, a traditionally shamanic function. As the leaves fall and die, death surrounds us but we know spring will come. Scorpio is an energy  that probes and delves into whats hidden, using life […]

Why Do Tribes Have Matrilineal Societies? Sonny Skyhawk addresses the tradition of matrilineal governance of Native American societies Source: indiancountrytodaymedianetwork.com/2012/02/21/why-do-tribes-have-matrilineal-societies-99221   This great article reminded me of a time… Working and living on the West Coast in the early 70’s, the women, especially as they say, the aunties and grandmothers were the ones in charge, they informed the “officials” of all the decisions.

Seasonal food requirements, preparation and sharing. A […]

Seagulls drifting. Reality hits. Lake Winnipeg is dying. The zebra mussels are killing it. I remember hearing the fisheries politician from the Interlake speaking so “administratively” on Cbc last year, with the first sighting and what they were doing about it – cleaning all boats etc. His voice was passive, ” government speak”. But way too little too late! I think […]

September New Moon 2016

7:11 PM Friday September 30 is the New Moon. A New Moon in Libra gives us an opportunity to reconsider our ideas about relationship: the meaning of the people who are in our lives. Jupiter’s recent entry into Libra is expanding this opportunity, and will help siphon off some energy from the Uranus-Eris conjunction in Aries, which is one symbol of the chaos and confusion that’s making intimacy seem so difficult to trust. It’s true that not everyone is in this situation, though many people are. At this time, the emphasis in relationships needs to be on trust rather than […]
