8-21-2017 Eclipse New Moon 28 degrees LEO

eclipse moonThank you for taking this journey together, we welcome your participation and energies to “hold a sacred space” for ALL OUR RELATIONS that may need our love and light now and for our Mother Earth who is LOVE!

BTW: Did you know?  Earth and Heart are same ~ move the H from Earth and put it on the front of earth ~ HEART.

There is a worldwide meditation happening at 11:11 AM (PDT) as we continue to prepare for these new times and beginnings. Let PEACE be our prayer! This is global, just imagine the energy we can emit from our hearts … like a bolt of lightning quickly changing what was, ushering in the NEW energies and blessings.

So, I’ve been researching all these other perspectives about what this HUGE EVENT really means, what could happen and all the what if’s … and it’s a bit overwhelming what folks are “receiving” and sharing. The past couple of days I’ve been sitting with this information and the main message that keeps coming in, is: “How does all this serve?”

Right now we have the Sun, Moon, Mars and North Node in LEO. It  is a sign that demands attention; ruled by the Sun (its spotlight) everything will be magnified and dramatic.  My understanding is that for approx. two and a half minutes the shadow remains dark … all of Nature is silent, as if to hold our breath and wait and see what happens, or doesn’t happen!

Keeping ALL this in mind, here’s what I AM receiving:

New Moons are always new beginnings, letting go of old patterns that no longer serve and the old FEARS that may be hidden. This is a time of planting NEW seeds. We know that we plant is what we reap ~ To honor our shadows and receive the gifts. In LEO, there is a tendency towards arrogance and selfish motives when unevolved and a generous giving “heart” person when evolved!

Eclipses (solar or lunar) are powerful events that are sacred to Native Americans. Many tribes do not go outside during this time, staying silent in their thoughts and prayers. It is a time of renewal, alignment and honoring ALL THAT IS.

This one is a time of reflection and going within. A time of integration of the shadow side of our selves into the light.

It’s been said that this is also a time when the Sun, Moon and Earth are in realignment and rejuvenation with each other, this is a sacred meeting to prepare for the next cycle. AHO!


Interesting that the planet Mercury is in Virgo is retrograde (apparently going backwards) right now and we need to reevaluate what has been spoken or implied previously. This is a critical/detailed oriented energy, that is analyzing everything and may be challenged to share the words. Communications may be “off” with many misunderstanding and taking things too personal.


Sun (light), Moon (emotions) Mars (warrior) and Earth (structures), align with North Node (destiny) with Regulus (Lion’s Gate) which is close by. All this LEO’s roar may heard globally, we probably seem confused and  arrogant to on lookers! Also, we do expect some continued major shifts during the next 5-6 months. Venus moves in LEO (8-25-17)  conjunct with Mars in LEO. This should bring in the feminine balance to this ongoing display of masculine forces!

Jupiter (opportunities for growth) has been in Libra the peacemaker (Raven) for almost a year. Male/female issues of equal pay, partnerships and judgements have been balancing out! This transit happens once ever 12 years (stays about 1 yr. in each sign) so this the the perfect time to “reboot” our belief systems, and release those old judgmental patterns.

Jupiter moves into another place on the wheel (10-10-17) into the sign Scorpio (Snake). We’ll address that in another blog.

This LEO New Moon is represented by the following in the Medicine Wheel:leo

leoThe Sturgeon, King of the Fish, rules wherever they live and sports a tough armor to protect the valuable seeds within. Sturgeon people have depth, strength, memory and long life because they are smart, some live to over 100 yrs! They can grow up to 9′ long.

Shawnodese, Spirit Keeper of the South, the Coyote, is the trickster, playing practical jokes, making sure we are not taking things too personally. This is where we test to see where our EGO is! We must keep a sense of humor.

Thunderbird Clan (Fire Signs) represents the ego and the “creative fire within” which manifests goals. Puffed up with self importance is a characteristic of Fire signs. Humility is not far behind when one needs this medicine.

Their plant is Raspberry. Tea of the leaves relieves nausea and flu symptoms and helps gallstones. Fire sign have a tendency to over do things, a cup of tea always helps calm the restless nature and rejuvenate the body.

Garnet is their Stone. It strengthens, energizes, enhances self-esteem and holds power. What a beautiful color, like blood that is life giving, it is LIFE and flow.

Challenge: Using power to help others, not to impress them; expressing confidence without arrogance. Being humble.

Gift: Their inner light attracts positive experiences and people who appreciate drama.

“I Shine” … my light out into the world!

Please join us in sacred meditation and celebration during this deeply moving period of change and opportunity. We’re lighting our sage and a white candle for clarity and peace. Check your local listings for times or just take the day to do what you are felt to do. Thank you ALL for adding your prayers and energy to ours.

“To all of you that have participated and will participate in the Medicine Wheel vision, we give our acknowledgement and thanks.

Always remember that, and be as gentle with yourself, as you are with the rest of creation.” Sun Bear 1990 (“Dancing with the Wheel”)

Journey with Aries




Happy Spring Everyone! March 20th (this year) we celebrated the Spring Equinox and the days become lighter and longer as the teachings are now about new beginnings! Starting in astrology with the sign Aries, we see the childlike nature excited about life, baby animals, flowers and trees blooming and all the new experiences awaiting! In MWA it’s the same, Wabun flies into our consciousness and we believe in the magic of all life …  thank you to ALL OUR RELATIONS. AHO!

With Wabun Spirit Keeper of the East, we are bringing forth the “dreams” that were seeded and are bursting forth after the darkness of Winter, into the light of day.

If you’ll notice in the last cycle of Waboose (White Buffalo) we focused on “The Spirit path of the North is the gift of healing our physical being and our way of relating to the world. This is the healing that allows us to let go of disease and accept health.”  Now we begin a new teaching as well. “The Spirit path of the East is the gift of healing our mental being, focusing on clarity, wisdom and illumination.” 

There are 3 Spirit Mineral Paths in each quadrant of the wheel and now we moved into the East. The first is ARIES the mineral is mica, the stone for clarity. We use the clarity stone mica when we want to communicate better, be clear with our visions or find ways to live simply. Next month we’ll discuss the 2nd stone which is jade and then the 3rd which is calcite.



In the MWA, the Animal Guide for Aries corresponds to the Sun sign for this month~ Red Hawk


Red Hawk People are adventurous, determined and proud. Their keen eyesight teaches them to be aware, alerting them and others to dangers and opportunities.

Wabun, the Spirit Keeper of the East, the Golden Eagle,  gives the gift of courage, vision and fearlessness.

Thunderbird Clan (Fire Signs) represents the ego and the “creative fire within” which manifests goals.

Dandelion is their Plant; the bold yellow/gold color expresses active, energetic lifestyles and detoxifies.

Opal is their Stone, which stimulates creativity to get things started and the fire energy to finish them.

Challenge: Focus on sharing with others, and “centering the Self” rather than being self-centered.

Gift: A childlike nature, lots of laughter and innocence that protects them from harm. They love to have fun.

 “I Am” … ready for the adventure. Let the games begin!


Their compliment (opposite sign) is Libra … Raven. Reflections of opposites are often the best teachers, Ravens are the communicators and prefer socializing. Red Hawk prefers to be alone rather than “flock”, always seeking a new challenge or adventure! The gift is to see each other in a balanced way, without judgement, as unique and beautiful individuals ~ honoring ALL as equals in the medicine wheel.

Astro Update: The planet Mercury is in Aries until April 6-7th and it could be a time to LISTEN more instead of  pushing your own agenda. With Aries Sun until 4/19 we’ll be looking for diplomatic solutions to a “warrior” energy and learning to channel this energy into more productive Universal participation. We had a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse 3/23/16 in Libra and this carries through it’s teachings of “we” are the people striving for peace. May WE focus more on a balanced resolution for ALL of life on our Earth Mother and stay on the good red road!

To have a better understanding of these energies, you must get Sun Bear, Wabun Wind and Crysalis Mulligan’s book: “Dancing With The Wheel”  It is incredible to journey with such passion and clarity about this sacred path.

Thank you for this opportunity and blessings to you all. Aho Mitakuye Oyasin (Gratitude To ALL my relations). *Star*
