Super Taurus Moon, Take Me Deeper. Channeled Insights.


The moon is always with us. She is ever faithful, ever illuminating. And sometimes, she gives a little extra, a deeper insight into ourselves.

This November 14th, we welcome a Full Perigee Moon, 14% bigger, 30% brighter, appearing closer than it has since January 26, 1948 and not be seen in such glory again until November 25th, 2034.

The Full Taurus Moon is set this month against a Scorpio Sun. Power and Mystery work together for our enlightenment.

As a Scorpio myself, with several planets in Scorpio to intensify things, I can attest to the pull of its darkness and impetuous need for uncovering what’s hidden, what’s extreme, what’s false or true. Scorpio is not afraid of the battle or what will come of it.

We have seen over the last few weeks since the portal into the Underworld opened at Samhain (All Hallow’s Eve) that the Scorpio sun is not shy to dredge up the underbelly of society, of our beliefs or our need for reform.

So many of us are still under the heavy blanket of the recent election in the U.S.A. What is the purpose of this heaviness? Do we need such contact with our fears?

Scorpio does not always ask the question of when is it enough? It will dig until we are fully buried in questions, and then leave us to die unto ourselves. When we die unto ourselves, we become present to what feels uncomfortable, we sit in it, we dine on it, we digest it, release it and move forward. Scorpio is our agent for change – if we allow it. If not, it will visit us again.

This month, Taurus helps us to methodically travel our internal discoveries with calm and stability. Thank goodness, because I think many of us are ready for this heavy blanket to lift.

It is blocking that connection we must make with our own heart center, where fear is surrendered and trust is born.

We are in heavy transformation! We are face first with who we are as a species, and the difficulties of 3rd. Dimensional living. We crave now, quite poignantly, the shift towards the 5th Dimension. We are not quite there yet, although many have already ascended, but as a society we are still grappling with basic questions relating to the human condition.

There is always a painful revelation of the dirt beneath the glory at times of ascension. It is a not so subtle reminder of where we do not want to recede to. Like a pimple that festers and throws up its poison before it heals into clarity.

At this time, we are being asked to face and actually embrace that poison. To feel it, love it, offer it peace and send it on its way. We can do this, with the super moon illumination that is being gifted from the heavens.

This heaviness will lift, I promise. Not immediately, we all have our work to do. Remember, the outward condition of the world is the inner condition of our hearts. Every soul has their purpose. Some bring the darkness to light, and some bring light to the darkness. Both are needed. Both engage in sacred work. Both will be bathed in Luna’s brilliance. There is no judgement.

We are being asked to move through fear and into trust.

We have been reactive, and this is perfectly normal. Reaction, tempered with compassion is a healing agent too.

Let us examine the numerical significance of the three dates on which such a Super Moon has, is and will exist. My guides are quick to remind me that all time, past, present and future occurs simultaneously, but for us here in the 3rd dimension, we understand time as linear. Therefore, numerology helps us to make sense of certain occurrences.

The Past:  01.26.1948 = 4   Stability, Strength, Matter, the Elements (Earth, Fire, Water, Air), The Representation of Self. The Earth Begins Ascension.

The world was awakening in 1948. It was healing from WW2. The day after the super moon, Executive Order 9981 ending racial segregation in US Armed Forces was signed. We were a humanity rising from incomprehensible terror.

We were more stable than ever before. Rising in strength and introspection, we began to build a new world.

The Present: 11.14.2016 = 7   The Mysterious Feminine. Mystery. Completion. The Representation of Beauty in the colors of the rainbow, the seven notes, the chakras enshrined within the body.

She is Rising. She – Luna. She – Goddess. She – Empowered. She – The Light.

She in her Fullness, shines the light on what is no longer acceptable. We are seeing this viscerally in the news. She will bring chaos when chaos is needed to open our eyes. She is Awoken.

Never before, except in ancient times, has Goddess been this vocal, this visible.

Can you see how the old paradigm is now being exposed and shifted? It is painful, dirty, unacceptable, and yet, we needed to see this. Returning to it seems impossible. We must not.

The Future: 11.25.2034 = 9 Birth. Potential. The Conduit between the Material and the Immaterial. Expression of a new Reality. The New Earth.

We are fast approaching knowing ourselves as Earth Builders and vessels of Divinity. We are not merely shells of human incarnation, we are spirit.

We are learning to live in both worlds; this and the unseen.

We are becoming more telepathic, more empathetic; more intuitive.

The lesson now is to stay present. Looking towards the future is good, but to be in the moment, to experience fully our lessons, to find our core goodness and express that fully is key. To be mindful – that is the journey.

“Friends, the point of this project has always been to return to the original impulse – that life on planet earth is to express LOVE as a three dimensional hologram. As a true Being in itself. Love is the external expression of the I Am. The fight against this expression is now dull in our eyes. Goddess rises because She can no longer bear the chaos. She once stepped aside out of her full love for the Sacred Masculine, her Twin, to allow him full birth on the planet. But even She now sees that either polarity on its own is not the fullness we are seeking. Together, Shakti and Shiva will create the new Earth. And you are conduits of this reality. You must embody both, the male becoming more female, the female becoming more male, the two in unity. The I Am is neither and both. So you must be neither and both. The time for setting aside either is come to an end. One is not evil and the other light. Both are light. And we assist you in every way you allow. You have never been alone, and we continue with our relationship. You are our beloved.” ~ Aiden

* Remember to cleanse your crystals and gems in the moonlight. Make moon water to wash your hands and face with in the morning, to use in sacred ceremony, or recipes. Yes! You can eat the moon!

Full Buck Moon in Capricorn!


Today, a chance to stand united under the full moon and find the compassion we need to become the peaceful, compassionate humanity this world so desperately needs.

July’s Full Buck Moon in Capricorn challenges us to overcome our own personal grievances and struggles, to enter heart space and lead by example.

Fear exists in the world because it exists in our hearts. Let’s begin with an eye towards doing our own work, finding our own peace, loving despite differences, living in harmony with the Sacred Feminine and Divine Masculine, walking lightly upon our planet.

And so we shall begin…grounded in Shakti’s lunar energy, as we once were, a tribe of equals.

Spring Equinox Moon: Birthing the Light.


My loves, there are no co-incidences on this plane.

With the energy of the Spring Equinox still upon us, we enter with Luna into a fullness that has brought us a painful reminder of the low frequency of Fear.

Today’s bombings in Brussels are no surprise to my guides who were already at my consciousness when I awoke. In a previous post, I shared their wisdom about how 2016, a 9 year, would gestate with a powerful energy from Mercury’s Retrograde until the Equinox.

While the time between then and now has been relatively short, we have felt more than ever, and experienced headaches, mood swings, depression, loneliness, apathy, loss of appetite, anger, frustration…and a deep need to hide away.

This is all normal, as we flow with Gaia and spiritual fluctuations – humanity is on a constant ebb and flow of learning. Mostly, we are learning to transmute fear into love, but in times like the past few months, it has been easy to just slip into fear and stay there. While everything has been pointing to possibilities, to inner growth and manifested visions, we’ve been trying to stay afloat in an emotional quagmire.

Among my visions for this year, were incidents like this, which happen at times when Love is awakening in more hearts than ever before. Why? Because on this planet of dualities, there is a balancing act that happens between opposing forces, and when one makes great strides forward (like Love is doing now) there is a push back from Fear, which senses it’s own demise.

While it saddens me greatly to know that some years are cradles for natural disasters and violent outbreaks more than others, I cling to the joy of knowing that the planet is on a trajectory towards great positive change.

I have two clear messages from my guides which they deem appropriate for this Full Moon. Again, for the rest of the year, we will be in full active phase of manifesting. As of tomorrow, we will be past any birthing we should have done and now the work before us is bringing to life what we need for our own physical incarnations and also any work that will affect the globe. Earth Builders and Light Workers alike will make great strides with inventions, art, music, environmental work, peace building, etc. And we are all of the Light!

Personal work continues, meaning, if you wish to change the world, change yourself. This is and always will be our most important work, our most meaningful, it is why we are here.

So now, for the messages: I’m not going to dilute them, because that would be of no value to you. On a day like today, this news may seem unjust, but it is for our highest learning and we are ready. So straight from the Source:

  1. Those who commit crimes, wage war, acts of terrorism, etc. are not going to hell or some purgatory, or whatever agony we might wish upon them as a punishment.

Everything on the Other Side, is Love and Light. When souls go back home, it is straight to the Light. They receive loving care to ease them out of the horrors they experienced and/or perpetuated here, because for EVERY SINGLE SOUL, to come here and experience FEAR is a great trauma. Every soul comes here voluntarily, to experience something they could never on the Other Side. While some come to experience trauma others agree to be part of that experience. This takes a great degree of sacrifice for a soul made only of Love.

So, there will be no suffering for those who bomb others? Yes, they suffer, while incarnated and being void of Love, they suffer while committing their acts, they will suffer whatever consequences they encounter here as a result of their actions…but once they go home, they return to who they were before they were detached from the Matrix.

Why do my guides share this knowledge? Because it is to our benefit to operate out of love and compassion, forgiveness and empathy, rather than anger.

To transmute Fear, we must, absolutely must, be Love. Especially to those who know only Fear.

There is no way to change them, unless we change ourselves. And this is one of the hardest parts of being human, offering love to those who hurt us.While there most certainly should be consequences, there must be room for them in heart space.

What sense would it make for those souls to experience more hell on returning Home? In what state would they return to their next incarnation? It is like our current prison system, hurting people in, hurting people out.

Love has to have the last word. Peace begins in heart space. Can you send love out today, to those who hurt you most?

2. To incarnate into a physical body, we must adjust to a very low frequency, one that we are not used to at Home. Until the age of seven or so, we still remember many aspects of our Spirit Selves. After that, we continue on in a kind of dream, where we are on a road to Remembering.

Unfortunately, we become so embroiled in the day to day aspects of life that we leave little room for remembering.

Here is the Full Moon Challenge for all of us; to revisit how we raise our children, and how we live as adults, with our spiritual quest a priority.

We can even find enjoyable ways to do this. Art, Music, Exercise, Sport, Sex, and Nature.

My guides say that in other dimensions, other planets, these activities are considered the highest of callings. Now, this is the only planet where we have to actually work to be fed and clothed, which is a challenge, I admit.

But if we even make a quarter turn in the way we view our incarnation. What if we raised children who experienced the wonder of the Universe, men who knew that their spirituality was the greatest part of their masculinity and women who understood themselves as Goddess?

What if we honored the Wild? What if we stood back and said, I already am All, I don’t need have it all.

This Full Moon promises the actualization of our visions, it has been spoken of since the year began.

And today, as everyday, we start with the same opportunity…to be Love.

That is all that we need to remember. I leave you with these things to Ponder.

Full Moon Blessings!










The Story of Lady Ganga – It Could Save Your Life.


“May I be a guard for those without one. A guide for all who journey on the road. May I become a boat, a raft or bridge, for all those who wish to cross the water.” ~ Michele Baldwin.

I adore serendipity.

Life has a way of handing us exactly what we need, when we least expect it.

Recently, my partner and I traveled to the island of Kauai to celebrate our 22 year love affair, and also to bring my newly released novel, The Dark Pool, to the mountain of Bali Ha’i for a gratitude ritual.

We had been in Kauai’s Poipu Beach area for a week before we made our way to the mystical North Shore; where almost three years before I had meditated at the foot of the sacred mountain to ask for courage to write my book and seeking healing after my adoptive mother’s passing over to the spirit world.

Somehow, my obsession with a civilized cup of English tea opened a portal for meeting a Kauai artist and his beautiful wife; both instantly familiar to us—an immediate friendship blossomed.

We were all in a grocery store, me looking for cream for my tea, and they looking for a decent movie to rent. Had it been up to me—who shies away from human contact—we would never have met. But my partner Steve has never met a stranger and straight away offered his opinion on their movie choice. I was drawn into the meeting standing beside them at the ATM.

Afterwards, we wondered if we had actually met them or was it one of those intra-dimensional occurrences that seem real but that only happened in another reality. We ‘recognized’ each other at soul level.

And that is how I found out about the story of Lady Ganga—Nilza’s Story. Here serendipity made another appearance.

Full Wolf Moon in Leo; Awakening to Compassion.


January has not been for the faint of heart.

The period between the New and Full Moon this month has also been the time of Mercury’s Retrograde.

We have been handed an opportunity to rise towards our best selves, because challenges, emotional and spiritual have dominated our hearts and souls.

My guides predicted 2016 to be one of profound change. When I was younger, such predictions would have brought worry and anxiety. Now I understand change as unavoidable shifts that open the consciousness to more love, more growth.

After all, we are here to be part of the mystery, so why should we shy away from the unfolding?

In the last few weeks we have witnessed the deaths of David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Glenn Frey. When brave, creative energy leaves the planet in a highly visible way, it is an opening of a portal. At the edge of the portal lies a call for Awareness. I’ll explain this in a minute.

Now, you may say, many other people left the planet during January, who were not celebrities…are their deaths not important?

Yes, every soul that passes over bears a message from Earth to the next Dimension, where, by the way, we are much more alive than here, unencumbered as we are by a physical body. But here is why celebrity deaths are significant;

When we experience death on a personal level, we mourn in our own little corner. When a celebrity passes, we are united in a collective mourning. A collective expression of emotion on a global scale is incredibly powerful.

Consciousness embraces the outpouring and offers healing en masse as we come together to express our sadness. For however long we humans become engaged in our common reaction to these deaths, we are not arguing, we are not dis-agreeing, we are broken by grief and shock and where the crack in our collective hard human shell appears, Love pours in.

And so we grow, we come further along in our journey towards One-ness.

I remember another year, when we mourned collectively; 1997, the year that Mother Teresa, Princess Diana and John Denver passed on. Together, we cried many tears and turned Inward; seeking Wisdom. Such years, when we look for deeper meaning to our existence, often herald a coming year of unfathomable change.

In 1998, Consciousness experienced these shifts on the planet we call home:

North and South Ireland signed a peace agreement on Good Friday. The Belfast agreement was signed later, ending years of unconscionable violence in Great Britain – to a great degree.

There were many financial crises, such as the devaluation of the Ruble in Russia, the collapse of the housing market in Japan, the Dow Jones fell 500 points in New York.

The Euro was declared as a common currency in Europe.

The Central Bank was created in Frankfurt, Germany.

President Clinton was impeached.

Tsunami’s, earthquakes and hurricanes killed thousands of people worldwide, the worst of which hit Honduras.

The positive in this? We survived and moved on. We gathered ourselves and with the example of the souls we lost guiding us from the Spirit World, we began movements to empower the people. While the world powers were coalescing to become even stronger, we began to wake up to the reality that change had to happen at a grass-roots level.

We’ve deepened our practice on our yoga mat, we have built more inner city gardens, we have lifted our voices in print, we have stood against hunger; we have opened to Compassion.

When the Moon rises full on Saturday the 23rd of January 2016, we will already have deepened our human bond while Mercury races around the Sun.

We will have the strength and full masculine power of Leo at our side. Om Shiva Om.

What can Leo, that roaring, gregarious, sensitive yet bossy sign teach us for the road ahead? For we are not to sit still when so much more is yet to be accomplished.

Leo teaches us confidence in the face of fear. A strong sense of belief when circumstance points in another direction. To motivate when we have the strength to do so and to find solace when we run out of steam. To recognize that together we stand.

While Leo is sociable and ready for a party, he is also the leader who knows when it’s time to fight for justice, for his pride.

We are all part of one pride. A pride of nomads who now traverse this world looking for a better place, a peaceful place.

But peace must come to the place we are in. How far can we run? This year, with the first Full Moon in Leo, we must find ways to create peace in the places we live, because we have run out of new continents to explore. We must stop looking to other hearts for change, it is our own hearts that must expand.

The Full Wolf Moon rises on our opportunity to heal relationships. To feed our immortal soul what every Full Moon promises; a harvest of everything we have sown since the new Moon.

As my Wolf guide often says; “Sit down here beside me, howl with me at the moon.” And then he begins his chant…Om! He howls. Did you know that that is what the Wolf says? His brothers and sisters pick up the chant. Om! I join in.

The sound of the universe, the first, original vibration, representing birth, death and re-birth fills the night sky.

This Full Moon, find some time to make your voice heard.

Namaste, my loves. Om Shakti Om.
