It's a powerful day with powerful waves of energy.  Today, when wise owls sense the wave (through feelings of overwhelm, powerlessness, fear, loss, or other extremes), we will stop and let the wave pass through us.

The energy can become crazily surreal.  Emotions can go all over the place.  This is because a wave of spiritual energy was released yesterday with the New Moon in Virgo.  This wave is pouring through the nooks, crevices, and corners of everything.  It is pounding through in a torrent.

The torrent is a good thing because it is clearing the way for new opportunities and new beginnings.  But because newness implies a change, it can be misinterpreted as feeling "not good."  As a traumatized species, we are overcoming our fear that we are destined for doom.  We are learning that change is the way of the universe, and that it is a dance that flows, not a game to see who is left standing.

If you feel like your emotions are coming in too fast, your body is trying to adjust.  Try picturing yourself "sliding" underneath it and out of the fray.

It will also help to not try to do too much today.  If a loss is experienced, it may be somewhat temporary.  Is it too soon to judge the final outcome?  If so, let it be.

The strength and combination of the energies today may have us vacillating between feeling quite energized to harness or seize the day and then quickly turn to feeling quite overwhelmed.  We don't want to engage all of this too much.  A powerful spiritual event is occurring.  Recognizing this, we can step back or step out of the swirling torrent and let it do its thing.  We can "de-personalize" it to some degree.

Last night I recorded two new audios to go into more detail about the energetics in place right now.  These are posted on

It's an important day.  We continue to practice the skill of the wise owl in a tree, observing all that is happening, ready to respond if necessary.  At the same time, we immerse ourselves in the beauty of nature, the mind of the Wisdom Goddess Sophia.  Wisdom let us attend.
