HOT found a Home


Following this blog you will notice this journey is a chronicle of arriving home.  Moving back to the neighborhood, “Upper East Side” some call it, has been a fantastic voyage.  After the end of the world last year it seems to have been a scramble to reassess the realities of life and align them with true purpose.

SO, it is time for a celebration!!!  We are here!  We are whole!  We have each other!

dark moon

The first new moon of the year was on Jan. 1st; a Super-moon in Capricorn educated us on power and control; my power – your power – balance of power … brought the shift from ME to WE – WE have been healing, shedding, letting go of the past, making way for the new path to emerge.

The second celestial treat of 2014 will take place tomorrow, Friday, January 31st.  It is the second of two new moons in a month – a Black Moon -  REBIRTH!!!   This second SuperNewMoon in January shines in Aquarius as it ushers in the Lunar New Year — Year of the Horse. With so many intense lunar influences on this much-celebrated day, it’s clear 2014 will be a year of change and movement – the energy is finally shifting forward.

Ready to emerge forth, share our uniqueness, add our vision to the collective Aquarius reminds – c the big picture!  Pause, breathe and digest – The Aquarian moon liberates your mind and your freedom follows.

Dance to the beat of your own drum. Be unique. Be original. Be who you are. Take a walk on the weird side.

The Sun and Moon are coupled in Aquarius offering you a fresh outlook on life. This positive energy can be utilized to further your dreams, goals and pursuits promoting your creative self-expression … A new cycle is beginning and the Aquarius New Moon empowers you to move in a bold direction – Break free from bad habits and relationships - No longer distracted by fear and doubt, you are ready to be who you were born to be -  prepared to stand in your divine power and shine your light.

As the Star of your life, the Sun center of your universe, if your life is hard, look inside, make the change. Coach yourself. Be honest. Where are you giving your power away? The change you want to see in the world begins with you.  Change your mind. You change your life. See your challenges from a different perspective. See your challenges as opportunities for growth.  In this way, new opportunities will emerge for you. Believe in your dreams coming true.

True power does not need those around you to agree with you. Authentic power is allowing everyone to find their own path to truth. This promotes diversity. This will support creativity, freedom and liberation for everyone…”   Being honest, sincere and in your integrity will keep you balanced. Manipulation, hidden agendas, and jealousy will take you off your path. Controlling others for one’s own selfish desires are not the act of the spiritually evolved.  Giving your power away to keep the peace is not love. This is fear…

Use your power wisely. Be a force for good in the world. Be a conduit for Joy. Keep your ego on a short leash. Live from your soul. This is your creative power. You are master creator. You are co-creating with Source daily.

Listen to your intuition. You intuition is your inner knowledge. Allow your Star, your Higher Self to guide you. Sudden unexpected opportunities can come to you from out of the blue. Your hopes and wishes realized. Your dreams come true. Be ready. In this way, you will seize the new potentials that are emerging in your life.
