You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine. Meanwhile the world goes on. Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain are moving across the landscapes, over the prairies and the deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air, are heading home again. Whoever you are, no matter how lonely, the world offers itself to your imagination, calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting — over and over announcing your place in the family of things. - Mary Oliver . #maryoliver #rewilding #mentalhealth #emotionalhealth #counseling #help #therapy #wisdom #wednesdaywisdom #ecopsychology #ecotherapy #cats #catsofig #catbrothers #catssnuggling #outsidecats #kittens #blackcat #tabbycat
Nick Campion: Would you say that astrology itself is a belief system? Liz Greene: No, I wouldn’t, any more than any symbol is a belief system. I don’t know what symbols are, except that they seem to emerge organically as containers of a multitude of conflicting and complicated patterns that are connected in some way. We don’t manufacture them, and we certainly don’t believe in them. They are there anyway. We perceive them, notice them, and make connections between them. “Believing” in astrology makes no sense to me. It is nonsense to say, “I believe in it,” because belief is something you do when you have no direct experience. Astrology is something that requires experience and hands-on work to see whether it conveys any meaning or relevance. So, it is like saying, “Do you believe in your car?” No, I just drive it. I have no idea how it runs, but if it works, well, fine. People who say they believe in #astrology are either using the wrong word or don’t know what they are talking about. . #lizgreene #skeptics #zodiac #horoscope #symbolism #astrologynerd #zodiacart #astrologyart #wisdomtraditions
Grandpa and Ton. Havin a moment. My dad looking healthy-er for a moment. ☀️ My Virgo dad and his Capricorn grandson.
Xavier Rudd show was uhmazing. Every human should get to do that every week. At least. digereedoo ftw. Felt tribal and primal and good. When picking shoes it occurred to me us dirty hippies shouldn't have to wear any and I was happy to see at least one couple there was not. Also, wore my rainbow tie dye skirt for first time in over a year. And never seen so many other chicks with awesome skirts and pants in one place here in town. Not-boring clothes, yay. . And these hard kombuchas we got for free were excellent. Look at those ingredients. #medicine . Molly Hatchet Flirting w Disaster was on radio on way there and we got a kick out of that. For reasons.

Been my home screen on phone for awhile now. Favorite picture of us ever. @whalientab52 My good luck charm. I miss our Universal Studios adventure. Me and this girl need more just the two of us adventures.
The art of life is to stay wide open and be vulnerable, yet at the same time to sit with the mystery and the awe and with the unbearable pain — to just be with it all. I’ve been growing into that wonderful catchphrase, “be here now,” for the last forty years. Here and now has within it a great richness that is just enough. If somebody asks me, “Ram Dass, are you happy?” I stop and look inside. “Yes, I’m happy.” “Ram Dass, are you sad?” “Yes, I’m sad.” Answering those questions, I realize that all of those feelings are present. Imagine the richness of a moment in which everything is present: the pain of a broken heart, the joy of a new mother holding her baby, the exquisiteness of a rose in bloom, the grief of losing a loved one. This moment has all of that. It is just living truth. ~ Ram Dass
All these oppositions to Neptune (altered states, sleep, dreams, confusion ) explain the sleepiness and escape urges and my inner child in there throwing massive fits (mars ) cuz I'm existentially exhausted. excellent creative energy but vitality is low. Get lost in a book or get a massage or go to the beach or do some yoga or meditate or do a sensory deprivation tank, listen to music all day or watch a good movie for healthy feeding of this energy if you cant just nap, daydream, cry, paint or write all day.

Astrology is a form of eco-therapy in that it serves to reconnect the individual with the living, breathing cosmos of which it is a part. “The sky is alive”, (Munk, 2007 ). I propose that part of the mechanism by which it accomplishes this, is through poetic, archetypal language. So there are two main ways that I see astrology reconnecting people with the greater solar system of which they are a part. Firstl,y is the animist lens it provides. The planets are alive and you are a part of their same larger living organism. Animist philosophies exist in greater congruence with astrology, in that animism perceives the environment as something that humans are a part of, not simply inside of. Thus, the stretch to the heavenly bodies, and what we call space itself, also being living, natural places, something humans are participating in life with, is easy to make. Secondly, archetypal language and stories takes the pressure off of the individual’s single story and broadens it and widens it. An individual can now see how their story they have been living in is connected to millions of other stories throughout time. It also provides an impetus through which one might discover alternative stories they could choose to live out. Its not just about poeticizing any single person’s identity to them, it is also a way of poeticizing existence itself, everyone else's and the greater organism's identities to a person as well. #celestialart #celestialspheres #archetypalpsychology #ecotherapy #ecopsy #ecopsychology #integrativemedicine #astrology #whatisastrology #wisdom #archetypes #jung #psychology #holistic #holisticpsychology #poetry #newmoon #newmooninvirgo #virgoseason #learnastrology #learnsomething #astrologyispsychedelic
Verr tired Reener. Send reinforcements.
Semester started today. Not stoked. . So the day Venus left Leo & entered Virgo, I found out/realized/decided I did have to go back to school this semester and continue my MS in Counseling, for now at least. All summer I've been convincing myself and decided that I was dropping out of the program and totally thought I was not attending this fall. but do to a funny situation I got myself in, 5 days before the semester started I realized I am going to have to be a studious bitch this fall after all. . . So here we are today, the first day of the semester and also the day of husband's surgery and I'm strangely confident I'm going to do okay but also, this is not going to be easy. . At least my classes are fun, Social Justice in Counseling and Introduction to Somatics... or something like that. . . Send coffee giftcards ❤️. #gradstudentlife #studiousbitch #VirgoSeason #astrologymemes
<3 🔥💥 Why do you want to shut out of your life any uneasiness, any misery, any depression, since after all you don't know what work these conditions are doing inside you? Why do you want to persecute yourself with the question of where all this is coming from and where it is going? Since you know, after all, that you are in the midst of transitions and you wished for nothing so much as to change. If there is anything unhealthy in your reactions, just bear in mind that sickness is the means by which an organism frees itself from what is alien; so one must simply help it to be sick, to have its whole sickness and to break out with it, since that is the way it gets better. .

Husband at a #burningman a long long time ago, prob 2010. The epitome of rockstar god is displayed herein. I think this is the one he ran into Jason Mraz at and Jason played Trevors guitar that's pictured. My #virgorising husbands service he provides to the world is his music. Like any good #virgo musician, he takes music very seriously and like any good virgo in general, he is always looking at how to improve anything and everything and make it better. And he good lookin' too. 😁 #taurusmoon #venusintaurus #taurusvenus @trevorandthejoneses #trevorjones #trevorandthejoneses
#VirgoSeason is upon us. Moving away from Leo Season, which is dominated by drives towards ego development and honoring the Self and Image, into #Virgo season, which is dominated by drives towards service to all that might be considered *not you*. The deeper lesson is of course, that you are also that which you are not and Self & Other exist as opposite poles to the same axis. . It's time to get organized, get cleaned up, inside our bodies and outside in our environment. It's time to go to work and find where you can be of service to our greater organism that exists outside the bounds of the ego we think we are. . #astrology #horoscope #astrologylover #astrologersofinstagram #zodiac #cosmicweather #tolstoy #wheeloftheyear #serinadoesastrology

I am still deeply grieving my best friend and sister of 15 years that checked out in March. It was already my mission to be a part of the revolution in mental health care that needs to happen. Because my mother's older sister,my cousin and my stepmothers little brother all already put guns to their heads in & before my lifetime. Now, my heart's not in it. . There is something deeper than our typical understanding of "mental health" going on here. There are energetic battles going on behind and under the scenes. The generational trauma so thick it's hard to breathe through and all the counseling and psychiatric drugs in the world barely help people keep their head above the water at best. Our environment is being destroyed and we are a part of that environment. Why are we destroying ourSelves?! We have lost your sense of connection to All That Is. There's a spiritual revolution that needs to happen. A revolution and evolution of human consciousness. Going back to the earth. Honoring our ancestors. Digging our broken, unpolished nails deep into the moist, dark soil of true healing. 😭😭😭😭😭😭 . . I'm 99.999% sure I'm dropping out of my MS Counseling program and shifting to an MS in Integrative Medicine and then getting training in ancestral work and shamanic techniques. I'll be well into my 40s by the time I'm where I feel I'm being led to be but here we go fam. ..she says through tears because milestones are always gonna hurt now and I really wish my best friend was here to put ❤️❤️❤️ on my kids 1st day of school pictures and call me to talk about her kids ya know. It's been 5 months.
A stack of #astrology books I am currently steward of. I've read 3 of them and I've read half of 3 of them and have not read the other 3. . I read Astrology, Karma & Transformation by #stevenarroyo and I do recommend it. I had the charts of all 3 main members of my family + my own printed out on a single sheet that I used as my bookmark and to easily reference while I read. . Astrology of the Moon by #amyherring is a good beginner- maybe not beginner level book about the moon that I know I've had many friends resonate with the descriptions of moon placements therein. Of. . An Astrology Primer For The Millions by #carlpaynetobey is a not well enough known classic for beginners and seasoned alike. Copyright 1965. . Numerology by #harishjohari is the best numerology book I've ever perused. I never finished it but I will pick it up again someday. 22 is my number that comes up over and over and over again in my names, my families names, my addresses, my phone numbers, numbers I notice that catch my attention and please me for some reason, etc, always 2's and 4's. Harish hung out with my man #ramdass too so I felt close to him when I read this one. . #astrologybooks #numerology #numerologybook #bookstack #occultbooks #horaryastrology #ncgrjournals #ncgr #astrologylover #learnastrology

The urge to transcend self-conscious selfhood is a principle appetite of the soul. In "Poisons Sacres, Ivresses Diines" Philippe deFelice has written at length &with a wealth of documentation on the immemorial connection between religion& the taking of drugs. Here, in summary are his conclusions. The employment for religious purposes of toxic substances is "extraordinarily widespread....The practices studied in this volume can be observed in every region of the earth, among primitives no less than among those who have reached a high pitch of civilization. We are therefor dealing not w exceptional facts, which might justifiably be overlooked, but with a general & in the widest sense of the word, a human phenomenon, the kind of phenomenon which cannot be disregarded by anyone who is trying to discover what religion is, &what are the deep needs which it must satisfy." . Ideally, everyone should be able to find self-transcendence in some form of pure or applied religion. In practice it seems very unlikely...There are good church[people] for whom piety is not enough... The modern churches, with some exceptions...tolerate alcohol; but even the most tolerant have made no attempt to convert the drug to Christianity, or to sacramentalize its use. The pious drinker is forced to take his religion in one compartment, his religion-surrogate in another. And perhaps this is inevitable. Drinking cannot be sacramentalized except in religions which set no store on decorum. The worship of Dionysos or the Celtic god of beer was a loud &disorderly affair. Countless persons desire self-transcendence & would be glad to find it in church. But, alas, "the hungry sheep look up and are not fed." They take part in rites, they listen to sermons, they repeat prayers; but their thirst remains unassuaged. Disappointed, they turn to the bottle. For a time at least and in a kind of way, it works...[but with time] the effective object of worship is the bottle &the sole religious experience is that state of uninhibited & belligerent euphoria which follows the ingestion of the 3rd cocktail. . Christianity & alcohol do not & cannot mix. Christianity & mescaline are much more compatible.
I woke up this morning at 4:30 to my son needing help back to sleep after a dream that upset him...about Shannon. . I got him settled in then our kitten critter we found yesterday started crying and meowin something fierce from daughter's room, where we have it right now...I eventually figured out he was hangry. I fed him and he got quiet. I tried to go back to sleep. Couldn't. Decided I would go outside and water and see if the kittens brothers were back hiding in the bushes in front of my house, where we found them yesterday. They were not. And I am super sad they never came back they were so cute all 3 of them sticking together. I'm disgusted with myself a little for letting them get away. . But, I did get to witness the waning sliver of a crescent Moon rising just before sunrise. Which never happens because I'm never up this early. In this image, the moon was in the 1st degree of Cancer, while the sun was in the 6th degree of Leo. So the moon is about 35 degrees behind the sun only, barely a sliver. . I started pulling some of the crab grass that's been trying to choke my lantana lately and got out of control. That shit is no joke. Even w the moon waning, it took all my strength and digging my nails deep down into the wet dirt to get those roots up, and I didn't get anywhere near all of the roots....but I did get a lot of them. . Here I was, at 5:30 am, elbow deep in the dirt pulling crab grass weeds when I'm usually never up before 8 or 9 in the summer if I don't have to be. My arms and legs and hands hurt when I was done but it was #satisfying #af . . An excellent way to practice "goingwithin" on the #darkmoon, is literally getting dirty and digging deep into the dirt with your own hands. Another way to go within is through intuitive and meditative arts like #astrology, #tarot and #iching. When we start living our lives in tune with the celestial cycles we are a part of, our lives become more full and manageable. . #gettingdirty #wildfeminine #gowithin #celestialcycles #moonincancer #sunrise #sunrisephoto #sunrisemoon #cactus #cactusatsunrise #moonandcactus #waningcrescentmoon
Flashback to July 2014. Just starting to really lean into the Wild Woman in me thanks to finding an online community of like-minded women and roll models of the kind of women I wanted to grow into. . Venus just moved to join the sun in the sign of the playful lion. Show your face. Enjoy yourself. Get out and be seen. Make new friends. Get a new hairdo. Show it off. Show off. Do something worth showing off. .

In Greek mythology, Chiron was, among other things, a Trainer of Heroes. Chiron is also widely known as the "Wounded Healer" archetype. Our battle wounds are part of our training to become Heroes. Healing our own wounds, we become Healers and Healed. Healer = Hero. . On July 28/29 the Sun (vitality, self Image ) in Leo, sign of heroes and leaders, lines up in a harmonious trine with Chiron in Aries, sign of the Warrior. . An opportune time to get in touch with the Healer Hero in us all, as we are all Hero's in training. . #chiron #astrology #astrologylover #horoscopes #horos #leo #aries #thesun #sunshine #herosjourney #healers #woundedhealer
