The Shadow’s Allure

Hi Everyone,

I thought a little honoring of the Shadow would be fitting for our Samhain Celebration, not to mention Sun and Mercury traveling the Via Combusta.

Posted October 16th on the Supernatural Underground

Fear is a state of mind.

It creates a simple chain of events: (1) a stimuli, (2) a chemical release in the brain, (3) a body response including rapid heart-rate, shallow breathing, sinking stomach, sweaty palms. It’s basic fight or flight instinct 101.

Research also shows that we come into the world knowing how to be afraid,
because our brains have evolved to deal with nature, and nature is full of threats. Think large predators, poisonous plants, snakes, spiders, ticks, tar pits, rip tides, hungry neighbors, flash floods, supernatural forces . . .  .

While many of us no longer fear saber tooth tigers and tar pits, the fear of the supernatural never abates. That’s because, far from “super”natural, it represent a part of us, deep and repressed, waiting in the darkness. What’s it waiting for? Basically, a chance to seep up through the floorboards and grab us by the throat.

The Scream by Edvard Munch

Jung defines this kind of fear as an element of our shadow—a part of our unconscious that is hidden from us, but ours none the less.

The shadow can be terrifying to experience whether it is triggered by a real life bang on the door or immersion in fiction that “makes the heart beat faster.” This is because our brains can’t tell the difference between real and make believe.

But if fear, and the shadow beneath it, are so horrible, why are we drawn to experience it in art, film and literature? What’s the big allure?

Simply answered, this fear awakens a part of our un-lived Self.

Jungian psychologists would say these experiences of the Shadow evoke powerful emotional reactions because they contain disowned material of our psyche, ie, part of our soul. Getting to know the shadow is an opportunity for wholeness, meaning we become more balanced, more whole, more complete.

This is the enchantment that draws us into the darkness.

Working with the shadow is immensely rewarding and liberating. By no longer having to hold down and repress your shadow aspects (which consumes a lot of energy), you free up your life force and vitality, become much more present-moment centred and are better able to live life consciously, authentically and purposefully. – Dr Mark Atkinson

It’s not a carefree road, this meeting the shadow. It’s also why all heroic journeys, including our own, require a trip to the underworld. Dante wasn’t kidding when he tacked that shingle on the door to Hell. All abandon hope ye who enter here. This state appears to be prerequisite for Horror’s success.

No matter how disturbing, the experience of a terrifying book, film or work of art, can set the stage for our own expansion. All it requires is for us to face our inner demons, integrate the shadow and come out the other end alive.

Easier said than done, I know!

What are some of your favorite scary stories? Do you remember the first one that nearly frightened you to death?

Mine was Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (I was five.) followed by a close second with The Wizard of Oz, mainly the monkeys. (OMG that’s why primates still make me squirm!)

Let’s share some fears here and let the Shadow live.

Happy Samhain, everyone!

Lively Libra New Moon


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

NEW MOON OCT 12/13th
@19 LIBRA 20

LA – Monday – 5:06 pm
NY – Monday – – 8:06 pm
LON– Tuesday – 1:06 am
SYD– Tuesday – 11:06 am

The Libra New Moon is ruled by planet VENUS, goddess of love, art and socially significant unions. Where you have Libra in your chart is where you want to develop aesthetics, harmony, refinement, relationship, affection, attraction, cooperation and live out those authentic core values. Sound elegant and gracious?

It is, except for the Uranus – tip the apple cart – opposition. There is a willful, rebellious, audacious component to this lunar event. It might express in some uncharacteristic ways such as acting out repressed feeling at the most inopportune times. It’s a moon that wants to share. You, and others, might be wildly surprised by what’s on your mind.

The hitch her is that Libra wants to please the company but while she’s saying yes and and obliging, Uranus in opposition is plotting a take over – French revolution style.

Expect relationship longings to awaken, along with your most creative Muse, and a singularly, delightfully demonic trickster. Fun combination!

Check the scopes for sign by sign hints.

Aries ARIES: You will know the shape of your relationships by the health of your body this new moon. It’s pretty simple. Healthy and strong = relationships are solid. Chronic or sudden dis-ease = check your relationships, honestly. What you repress goes straight to the chakras. Purge.

Taurus TAURUS: Bulls need to take their minds off of the health and well being plan and put so heart and soul into a creative project or desire. The goal is to forget all about your goals and find what feels good. Dreams, etheric as they are, can be excellent guides right now. Journal.

GeminiGEMINI: With ruling Mercury direct and on the North Lunar Node, the path opens onto a crossroads. All you need to do is tune in to your higher guidance and say YES to the direction that excites you the most. It’s not advance calculus. Just point your nose toward whatever makes your heart beat the fastest.

CancerCANCER: Home, family and hearth are in flux right now. You might be moving house (the 2nd most stressful thing you can possibly do) or maybe wishing someone else would. Any cantankerous edge is your ally thought. Take it as a signal for what wants changing. Focus, then act. !

LeoLEO: Your New Moon is in the house of communications where you will find yourself more honest, clear and possibly abrasive than you’ve been in a long time. What starts out as a compliment or genuine praise twists mid-air to critically land on the unsuspecting. Better out than in.

VirgoVIRGO: This is your power year with Jupiter in Virgo, currently flanked by Mars and Venus. It’s a sexy, charming and very clever vibe, on that’s going to see offers come floating over your desk. I won’t even mention Tinder. Basically, you’ve got the power. Consider developing a latent talent or resource.

LibraLIBRA: A once a year personal New Moon and there is much to celebrate (especially if your birthday falls within 5 days of this NM). The feeling is freedom AND connection, love AND autonomy, fun AND focus. You’ll want to give a does of energy to both sides of the fence. Piece of cake.

Scorpio SCORPIO: This time of year brings your ‘shadow’ New Moon. You’ll want to have some quality alone time, tuning into the inner currents of life. If you have a sudden physical complaint, consider (as well as appropriate health care) the emotions attached. Now, *exercise* the demon. (stet).

Sagittarius SAGITTARIUS: With Saturn newly into your sign and this moon in the house of goals for the future, you take a serious look at what you’re creating. Instead of thinking forward a year or so, take a bigger leap. What would you like your life to be in five years. Plan for that.

Capricorn CAPRICORN: Career concerns are in your face with this new moon. They appear sweet and helpful, but you suspect the iron fist inside the velvet glove. Torn between compliance and revolt, think first which part of yourself YOU want to win. Is there a way to have both?

Aquarius AQUARIUS: Expect invitations to travel, speak, teach, lead, play, compete. It’s a fun old time with the new moon in the 9th house of exploration and adventure. Just know that you carry with you that Uranian edge. Feel free to be radical, shocking even. This is no time for norm.

piscesPISCES: Your emotions are lit up like a Roman candle, hot, creative, dramatic. It’s great if you are being true to yourself, being who you are authentically. But, if you play down your needs so to appease others or keep up appearances, expect change of the volcanic kind.

Happy New Moon, everyone! xxxKim

Season o’ the Eclipse – New Moon

Rabbit and Mouse on Bicycle by Mardi Speth

Hi Everyone,

I’ve been incredibly busy in diverse and exciting ways. I did want to get you the eclipse scopes though, so here we go.

The New Moon Eclipse in Earthy Virgo is a mega-awesome-time for setting intentions. Think big as you make them powerful, detailed and authentic. Pay attention to the house the eclipse falls in. The scopes below are for the “solar houses” but look also to where you find 20 degrees of Virgo. It lights up!

New Moon Eclipse 20 Virgo 10 – September 12/13th

LA – Saturday – 11:42 pm
NY – Sunday – 2:42 am
LON – Sunday – 7:42 am
SYD – Sunday – 4:42 pm

AriesARIES: Focus on your physical body. How do you feed it, care for it. Exercise? Fresh air? The great outdoors? You want to review your health and fitness goals and practices. Set new intentions for the body temple.

TaurusTAURUS: This cycle of eclipses points toward your creative heart. What do you do that is special and unique to you? Is it art? Music? Acting? Romance? Maybe it is the creative rearing and nurturing of your child. Imaging things even better!

GeminiGEMINI: You’ve been wanting to make changes in the home and this year is it. Bank on that. So clear out the doubt and the hesitation. Set yourself some powerful intentions around where, how and with whom you live.

CancerCANCER: If you have a manuscript, pitch, idea, plan or program to launch, take whatever you think it can achieve and times it by ten. You have a gem of an inspiration, so don’t hold back. It’s time for major accomplishment!

LeoLEO: This eclipse is going to do wonders for your bank account. Focus on not just the creative goals you want to reach, but the financial ones as well. The more you intend, the more you will receive. You’re good at receiving, right?

VirgoVIRGO: Here is is, your personal new moon and a majorly supportive eclipse. This doesn’t happen every year, so immerse yourself in the thing you love, appreciate how far you’ve come and prep for and even better future. It’s happening!

LibraLIBRA: Think of this as a ritual new moon, powered up from the inside out. That means you set your intentions based on your inner most, deepest, driving desires. As you take a little time in quiet solitude, you discover the next, exciting path!

ScorpioSCORPIO: This eclipse is like the changing of the guards. Out with the old and in with the new. That might include worn out friendships or relationships that are no longer authentic and true. Don’t be afraid to let go. Do be real!

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: Focusing on the inner most details of your career, mission or profession will have spectacular results. It’s time for a sea change and you have it served up in the finest offer yet. Be gracious, grateful and visionary!

CapricornCAPRICORN: Time to mix biz with pleasure, work with travel, fun with facts and practical results. You have the chance to expand your horizons, but you have to plan thoughtfully. Vision it first, set an intention then give it some room!

AquariusAQUARIUS: Offers or plain old cash could come from grants, advances, loans or windfalls so be alert to opportunities to apply. This is just a metaphor for the support the universe is giving. Know that whatever you attempt, U has your back!

piscesPISCES: Relationships sort themselves out on this new moon eclipse. If your first inclination is to spot the problem, take a deep breath and practice everything being all right. Come, go, stay, leave, it’s all good. Practice the Zen of this vibration.

Happy New Moon Eclipse, Everyone!

Let me know the news. xxxKimmy

Things to do on a Leo New Moon


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Lionscr by Michael Parkes

Lions Return by Michael Parkes

Hi Everyone,

The Leo New Moon is upon us! Time to celebrate heartfelt feelings, creative expression, individuality, arts and performance, play, fun, romance and kids!

NOTE: 21 degrees of a fixed sign is considered a ‘critical degree’. Even though this New Moon is well aligned to Venus, Eros (exact at 21 Leo) and Uranus, expect things to ‘come to a point.’ This can mean you dump a toleration, speak out when you have held your tongue, or even have a bit of a hissy-fit to clear the air. Expect things to move forward more evenly once you do.

New Moon 21 Leo 30′

LA – Friday – 7:54 am
NY – Friday – 10:54 am
LON – Friday – 3:54 pm
SYD – Saturday – 00:54 am

The New Moon falls into the Mars/Aries decante of Leo:

20 to 29 59′ Leo is the Mars decanate. It increases aggressive and assertive powers. Apt to be impetuous and quick to act. Generous, flamboyant and needs independence. Knows what they want and how to get it. Strong romantic intentions.

Sounds fun!

Remember, Leo represents the vitality of the fiery Sun—bold, commanding, animated. It conducts energy at a higher rate than any other sign, accounting for its enthusiasm, spirit and zest for life. The natural seat of Leo is the fifth house, ruling anything that makes us feel special, unique and creative—children, artistic endeavors, literary works, dance, music, drama, love affairs and speculation.

The Sun oversees individuality, healing, vital force, identity, purpose and destiny. He symbolizes creative expression, power, courage and authority—the place where thoughts turn into actions, and deeds determine the self-worth of the individual.

Where we find Leo in the horoscope is where we need to feel distinct, special and artistic. We want to be in the limelight in some way, affirming our value, worth and merit. The fixed nature of this sign implies tenacity through certitude, giving Leo a reputation for immovable determination. The sights are always set on the future and Leo has no problem imagining how things might be.

Where is this New Moon happening for you? What intentions will you set there?

Reference for the houses:

The meanings of the houses are deep and rich with metaphorical and literal content but here is a quick list of key words to get you started.

1st house – Appearance, personality traits, outlook on life
2nd house – $$$, resources, talents, peace of mind
3rd house – Teaching, learning, writing, talking, connecting
4th house – Home, family, ancestors, emotional ground
5th house – Creative expression, offspring (books/kids etc), romance
6th house – Health, pets, daily routine, employment, magic
7th house – Socially significant relationships, contracts
8th house – Sex, death, taxes, shared resources, trust
9th house – New horizons, travel, beliefs, WWW
10th house – Career, mission, profession, public relations
11th house – Friends, goals for the future, groups
12th house – Unconscious, dreams, giving and receiving, meditative states

Here is a quick ‘to do’ list to spark more ideas:

  •  Play
  •  Dance
  •  Laugh
  •  Sleep in
  •  individuate
  •  Finger paint
  •  Adopt a kitten
  •  Get creative
  •  Enjoy the drama
  •  Go out to dinner
  •  Practice more self-love
  •  Play music, sing, draw, sketch, write, perform

Save the Day – a Writerly Community


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

11787204_1686732078224080_1060037257_nHi Everyone,

I have an announcements today, entwined with the lovely Mercury, (ideas and words) Venus (pleasure and sharing) and Jupiter (expansion and joy) conjunction.

I’m calling it Save the Day, my new Facebook page consisting of daily writing tips and weekly writerly tutorials. Here’s a glimpse of that’s up there so far:

Tip #13: You don’t have to struggle for ideas. You have to ‘relax’ for them. As John Steinbeck said, “Ideas are like rabbits. You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen.” Where do your ideas come from? I know mine often seem out of the blue.

Tip #9: Create a sense of danger, risk and consequence. It could be physical, emotional, spiritual or psychological, but it has to matter. Keep danger immediate by putting your characters at risk. Make us care, then push them over over the edge.

Tip #5: In each of your scenes, something must change. Hate turns to love. Fear –> trust. Anticipation –> dread. Belief –> disbelief. Joy –> sorrow. Anger –> amusement. Trust –> distrust. It isn’t a scene until something changes; and once something changes, it’s time to move on.

Tip #1: Read! Half of all writing is reading, and that doesn’t just mean your audience. It’s you too. Connect to story in every conceivable way. Inside and outside your genre, good books and bad. Film scripts, novels, short stories. Read. Read. Read!

If you want a daily tip for inspiration and a weekly video tutorial, like Save the Day and they’ll show up in your FB feed.

If you guys are keen, I’ll post a weekly digest here. Love to hear your thoughts.

And where is Mercury/Venus/Jupiter in your chart? (26 – 28 Leo). What creations are coming forth? What celebrations? Let us know!


Sometimes a Wild God

This is Saturn Rx made to music!

Thank you!

Coyopa : words by Tom Hirons

Sometimes a wild god comes to the table.
He is awkward and does not know the ways
Of porcelain, of fork and mustard and silver.
His voice makes vinegar from wine.

Venus Rx Revisited


, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Astro-LOA Flash: It’s Retrograde Venus time, everyone! Are your ready? Venus turns stationary at 0 Virgo, then spends the next 2 and a half months moving “backwards” in Leo. (Brush up on Rx planets tutorial here.)

We’re doing an Align with the Stars call on this topic Tue the 21st, 6pm Eastern. Listen in and learn about this energy, how to leverage it, and how to use the Venus return charts to amp up your deliberate creation intentions. Check out our monthly calls.


Updated hints by zodiac sign (sun and/or ascendant) for WHERE you want to tune into core values, re-image yourself and reflect on your personal, one-to-one relationships.

AriesARIES: Venus through your house of creative self expression is fabulous for artistic pursuits and child-like play. Pre-pave your true desires here. This is also a charming time for romance but with the retrograde, it’s likely things will flare from ex-current-ex, lukewarm to sizzling again. Wait until October to make a decisions. Children have an influence

TaurusTAURUS: This cycle is all about the home. Are you Queen/King of your castle? If not, why no? Take this time to get the home life correct. That means family as well as the physical dwelling. You might have a major re-evaluation of life style and location. Consider long; make major move after Oct 9 if possible. Parents will be of influence.

GeminiGEMINI: If you have a career in writing, teaching, studying or any form of the written/spoken word, this is your time to gain major accolades. Put your works in front of eyes that matter. Proposals could take yonks to hear back on but the results are potentially spectacular. Involve yourself with community. If ever a time to connect with siblings or cousins, it is now.

CancerCANCER: Venus in your financial sector says “shake your money maker.” Put yourself out there while you dream bigger than you ever have before. No more shyness before all things. Bold, bright and beautiful is your manta. Check into your core values. Make sure you are living yours to the max! aunts, uncles and financial advisers are of influence.

LeoLEO: This is your sun sign/Venus conjunction and it gives you double the charm, double the allure and ten fold the vivacity. Use this energy, especially on your own self development. Reconsider everything from wardrobe to walk, style to elocution. Your whole image gets a change up. Be MORE you. Be open to explore who your are for yourself, not others.

VirgoVIRGO: Your life force glows from the core of your heart to the outer reaches of the cosmos. People will notice the change. Compassion is amplified, and so is a hard to pinpoint charisma. This is where you give to the greater oneness of life, like a beneficent god/goddess of antiquity. And, follow your heart wherever it leads. Dreams and spirit guides abound.

LibraLIBRA: The life of the party, the charm and enchantment in any group, you shine among friends, center stage. Like truth serum, when it comes to your closest others, Venus reveals who is loyal and who has moved on. Expect some reshuffling where attachments are concerned. Amp hopes and wishes for the future! Friends are of most important influence.

ScorpioSCORPIO: Whatever you are manifesting on the career front, smile and it’s yours. Just take note, during the Rx cycle, you may discover that what you thought would make you happy doesn’t cut it anymore. Revisit your core values and trust guidance to pave the way to what you heart desires. Parents or authority figures/heroes are of strong influence.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: Expansion is your style and with Venus in your solar travel sector there’s plenty of potential for all levels – mind, body and spirit. As you ready for new horizons, think of sharing the adventure. Venus wants to partner and in Leo it will make the journey doubly sweet. An old flame resurfaces . . . perhaps? Think: Foreign affairs.

CapricornCAPRICORN: All work and no play will only piss Venus in Leo off, royally. You want to schedule in some fun around all the empire building. There’s a chance to rethink your approach to intimacy. It might change the way you view life. Be it tarot with a friend, deep and meaningful conversations or sizzling passion, doors open now. Intimacy with another has a profound effect.

AquariusAQUARIUS: Consider the power of pre-paving when it comes to all your personal, one-to-one socially significant relationships. You don’t want to let this opportunity go untouched. Get to the core of what you REALLY want when it comes to partnership, biz or pleasure. What unfolds now will enlighten you, if you let it. This is your time to connect. Don’t miss out!

piscesPISCES: Note: any issue with the body is a message that something isn’t quite right. You want to jump on this, not through “treatment” but by listening. What is it that you repress? Release that now, and put some love into your nutrition, exercise, work and magic. Creativity and passion bloom at the strangest times! And that time is now. New connections with animals, spirits creatures, or even your vet, dentist or health care professional are on!

Solstice Spree

Sisters of the Sun Keith Mallet

Sisters of the Sun Keith Mallet

Astro-LOA Flash: It’s mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. Traditionally, we celebrate, appreciate and open our eyes to the gifts life brings. Fuel your goals, aspirations and desires by honoring your connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Today, you do what lights you up, and be glad for it.

The solstice is a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings, and with Mars so close to the sun, your intentions are magnified. Your thoughts and desires literally have wings. Let them fly!

Technical Note: In Astro lingo, the Sun is crossing the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. What? The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

As the sun crosses the AP, it also triggers other powerful points (the Draconic Nodes) releasing energy to move you along the path. If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts today!

Deliberate Creations tips from the GoodVibeCoach:  Set magical intentions. Pre-Pave and appreciate.

Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think greet, engage, give, receive.This is where you go on a Solstice Spree of enthusiasm and joy!Not sure where that is, comment and we’ll give you a hand.

Tips for amping up the solstice energy

AriesARIES: Get playful and feisty in the home. Engage with the family, go on a cleaning spree, clear the are with clan members and enjoy some good home cooking.

TaurusTAURUS: Start a new course of study, join a community project, get friendly with the written or spoken word. What do you want to say, teach, learn?

GeminiGEMINI: Indulge and cherish your core values, develop your talents and be MORE of who you are. Think about what supports your life and love it up.

CancerCANCER: This is a new chapter in your life. Open the door to your dreams by being true to yourself. Let go of old patters and start something new. Something YOU.

LeoLEO: Commune with your unconscious. Take time to reflect on your dreams. Create, walk in nature, engage with spirit, meditation, yoga, healing. Serve.

VirgoVIRGO: Hang out with your like-minded others. Their aims and goals are linked to yours and sharing aspirations will fuel them. We all succeed together!

LibraLIBRA: Your career takes a turn for the new and improved, with a chance to carry more responsibility for much greater reward. Better do what you love. Now!

ScorpioSCORPIO: Take your mind, body or spirit somewhere it’s never been before – meditate, travel, read, learn. You’re after new horizons, explorations and the unknown.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: Intimacy and intensity lights a blaze of passion. Go ahead and take a leap in the dark. You’ll never know, if you don’t. Emotional risks pay off!

CapricornCAPRICORN: Partnerships of every kind ignite you desires, heating up energy and leading you places you didn’t know you wanted to go. That’s the plan. Go there.

AquariusAQUARIUS: A whole knew relationship to health and well being is waking up. You feel more, do more, create more, when you treat body like your very best friend.

piscesPISCES: Creativity springs from a well of romantic notions. Write, play, choreograph, sing, act. The muse speaks to you through love. Listen in!
