Monthly Outlook

January 2018

January is especially true to its namesake this year: Janus, the god with two heads, who looked simultaneously into the past and into the future. The month is a lengthy and powerful process of understanding and clearing out last year, while setting and …

December 2017

Hurry up and wait. December begins with a frenzy that morphs into steamy fog and running in place...and then quiets into...maybe not calm, exactly, but something closer to stillness than what we’ve experienced in years. The year’s fiery energies are gi …

November 2017

The time for Halloween may have passed, but the vibe hangs in the air throughout November. At turns spooky, scary, secret, salacious and sexy, it’s coexisting now with eruptions of long-building passion and life force. The mixture is paradoxical, like …

June promises a wild and wooly ride in an ever-changing environment. Don’t like the weather? Just wait. It’ll switch soon enough. The atmosphere, conversation, alliances, agendas and tactics are all in for fluctuations (to put it charitably) that could …

May 2017

May promises a crazy-quilt of epiphanies and breakthroughs; explosions and implosions; structure and solidifying; and ever-greater commitment to self. And beyond the broken glass from so many shattered light bulbs, life-changing messages and streamlined priorities.

April 2017

Push-pull is the theme of the month. The key’s in the ignition, the foot’s on the gas pedal and yet...one force after another invites lingering, checking the mirrors, and shifting into reverse. Sounds like a retrograde at work, right? Actually, several …
