Spring has sprung as we enter the sacred balance point of our seasons; it is the time of equal day and night for the Earth. This year the Equinox is especially potent. We have Planets that have all gone direct (no retrogrades) and we have a beautiful conjunction between Venus and Jupiter in the evening sky, We also have Saturn, one of our most powerful "shaker and mover" planets, entering the dreamy world of Pisces, This will give us each the strength to make our deepest dreams come true. And through all of this, we have Sol, our beautiful Sun, sending us numerous bursts of Plasma almost daily. This Plasma is filled with the most incredible Light Codes for the New Earth. These Codes are dancing across the Northern skies in colors we've never seen before, as they seed the Earth for her new days to come. Where I live in the Eastern Sierras of California, we're having an amazing late winter season of snow. The crystalline energy of the snow is so cleansing and purifying that it feels like we're being reborn. And we certainly are... Have a beautiful Equinox Season everyone! With much love always, Marianne.
Greetings to all of you on this Sacred Day of Imbolc. On this day in the Northern Hemisphere, we are now at the halfway point between the Winter Solstice (Yule) and the Spring Equinox (Ostara). The word "Imbolc" means, "in the belly of the Mother", because the seeds of Spring are beginning to stir in the belly of Mother Earth. We welcome the return of the Light at this cross-quarter day, and we can feel the Earth as she readies herself for the warm days ahead. The blossoming time will be here soon...
As we begin this new cycle, the Light is pouring in! It began at the Winter Solstice and continued right through the new Moon in Cancer we experienced on the 6th. New beginnings, New Life, a Template of 5th Dimensional Love. That is what we are stepping into Now. An amazing Life on Planet Earth. Let the beauty begin...
Entering the 12/12 Portal into the Winter Solstice
December 12, 2022
Today is a powerful gateway that will lead us into the Winter Solstice. Ten years ago, on December 12, 2012, an accelerated journey of the Earth's Ascension began. Our world has never been the same. This is a twenty year process and today we are halfway through. Congratulations!
In the past ten years, we have descended into a chasm of clearing and cleansing, as we've released the burdens our Souls have carried for millennia. The Earth has been doing the same. And along with this, we've been upgrading into a higher, brighter version of ourselves. Copious amounts of Light have been sent our way through the Cosmos, much of it channeled from our Home Sun. It's been quite the challenge for human bodies to absorb so much High Frequency Light in such a short amount of time, but the rewards have been great and the chaos has been off the charts as well! It's no easy task to transform a world from Dark to Light!
Today we have turned the corner and we're heading up through "the wreckage" of our old world, creating a New One as we go. The New Earth is beckoning and finally, as a collective, we are heeding Her call...
Happy 12/12 everyone and a Blessed Winter Solstice to you all!
The days of falling leaves and cold noses are upon us as we slide into the beginning of our "cold days season". Of course if you live in the Southern Hemisphere, it's the season of fresh green leaves and bare feet on the grass! Either way, the seasons of change are upon us and life is good. We are moving through an incredibly powerful Eclipse Season, as waves of Crystalline Light pour onto the Planet, unearthing the dark shadows buried in both the Earth and the human collective. All need to be cleared so we can carry more Light. It is messy and chaotic, this dredging of the old, but it has to be. Eventually the world will be Light!!
Meanwhile back in the garden, the last of the food and flowers are feeding hungry mouths, both ours and the numerous pollinators who grace our garden. We feel blessed for the abundance we've received this gardening season and soon it will be time for us to rest. I wish you all a beautiful month of November and a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. We have so much to be grateful for!
As we slide into the beautiful month of October, I wanted to talk about the Autumnal Equinox we just experienced on the 22nd of September. It was a powerful one! The Fall Equinox marks a time of balance on the Earth, symbolized by the Astrological Sign Libra, which is ushered in at that time. Here in the western United States, we moved into Libra at 6:04 PM on the 22nd, and boy could I feel the energies come swooping in at that time! The Autumnal Equinox is the moment of pause, in perfect balance, when the Earth is reborn into her New Year, her New Cycle, (this occurs at the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere). Though we celebrate the New Year at the start of a calendar year on January 1st, Nature sees the Equinox as her true New Year.
What happens is that right before the Equinox, the entire orchestra (symbolizing the old cycle) is playing the grand finale, and then, at the moment of Equinox, it goes silent. Out of the silence, the first note appears, so softly we could almost miss it, and the New Cycle begins. The Devas, who are the architects of Nature, will begin to create the blueprints for this New Cycle. They create them through the long winter months, through Winter Solstice, and on into Spring. At the Spring Equinox, various Nature Beings, including Faeries, Elementals and Nature Spirits, will be called in, and they take the Devic blueprints and weave them into form. The New Cycle will now unfold through spring and summer and on into the Fall, (again, this is opposite in the Southern Hemisphere). Since we too are part of the Earth, it's important for us to call in our own cycle at the moment of Equinox. We're then aligned with the Earth, and our cycle can unfold with more ease, balance and support. We are indeed powerful creators, and when we consciously call in what we'd like to experience in our New Year, amazing things can happen!!
My wish for all of you- and for our Mother Earth too- is that this New Cycle brings us all the Peace, Joy and Love we could possibly ask for! That's a BIG DREAM I know, but why not dream BIG this year?? We have nothing to lose and everything to gain so why not call it in?
Happy Fall everybody! Lots of love to all of you in this New Year!
It has been an amazing summer, full of flowers and food in our garden, and we're incredibly grateful for all the blessings we've received. And now we're ready for the cooler days ahead! We've got oodles of tomatoes ripening on the vine and there are spicy peppers hanging like ornaments, ready to be picked. And then there's the garden basil, so sweet and abundant this year, it's been keeping the pesto flowing! A glorious time in the garden indeed!
So somehow we all made it through the Lions Gate this year- some of us barely, right? -and now we're all taking a deep breath as we say goodbye to August! The fiery Leo Sun is sliding into the sweetness of Virgo and life is good. The Fall Equinox is on the 22nd this year and that's when all of Nature begins her New Year-her new cycle-and the Earth is happy as she begins her life anew. And since we are all a part of Nature, we can begin our new cycle too. So what would YOU like to experience in this new cycle-this new year? Call in your cycle and make it grand; your dreams might just come true in this New Year of 2023!
Meanwhile, everybody, enjoy the slower pace of autumn as the fall colors dance across the landscape and the gardens give their final bounty. It's a wonderful time to be alive! And, as always, see you in the garden....
Welcome to the last month of summer! We pass through Lammas, the cross-quarter day between summer and fall, on August 2nd. After that day, we'll be sliding down the final month of summer celebration! There's a powerful alignment day on August 8th called The Lions Gate, and as we pass through the gate, we'll align with the highest timeline we're able to step into. It's time to sharpen our skills and create the beautiful Earth we want to live on. The 8/8 Portal is a potent time of possibilities to do just that!
Meanwhile, here in the garden the abundance is flowing and we're taking it all in.
Figs, peaches, nectarines, tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, chard and enough basil to create a world of PESTO!
We are forever grateful! I hope all of you are having a wonderfully abundant summer as well. Happy harvesting!!!
Happy happy summer! This is that glorious time when we swim in the lakes, hike in the mountains and play in the garden. I love it all! Our gardens are bringing us the first fruits and veggies of the season with lots more to come! Fresh figs and apricots for smoothies, pasta dinners made with the first tomatoes, onions and peppers and topped with pesto from our first garden basil. Yummy! I hope you all enjoy a beautiful and abundant summer season.
Let the Sunshine in!!!
Summer in the garden is the time for all things growing. The heat can be challenging at times for gardeners and gardens alike, but the rewards are so many. It seems as long as the water keeps flowing, we make it through the hot season in style, with an abundance of fruits, veggies and GARDEN COLOR! We are so blessed! Have a beautiful June everybody and a wonderful celebration at the turning of the seasons on Summer Solstice. Here in the northern hemisphere, the gardens are calling...and we are listening!!
Hi, I am Marianne and a lover of all things Nature! I love my gardens and I know you have that love of nature in you too!
