GEMINI SOLAR (NATO SUMMIT) NEW MOON ECLIPSE SUN MAY 20
Eclipses interrupt steady connections which link Sun to Earth and Earth to Moon. They turn direct current into alternating current; they make life pulsate between polarities, between past and future. In other words, they shift fate. New Moons in general, and especially at Eclipses, offer opportunities to clear old patterns - to let go of what we no longer need - possessions, attitudes, habits, grievances, fears, etc. This particular New Moon in the first degree of Gemini is conjunct the Lunar South Node, a revisitation and review of our collective past. Gemini is the direction away from Galactic Center (Sagittarius). The 'Twins' are actually the mirroring reflections of Self or One which create the facts (or illusions, depending on your perspective) of individuation, us. The expression of life as 'pioneers', the Gemini 'journey' out ('go forth and multiply') into new territory. This Solar Eclipse (annular, so not visible here; exact at 6:47 p.m. Sunday) is asking us to understand the choices we have made, as individuals and as a species, to create our own evolution. With retrograde Venus in Gemini trining retro Saturn in Libra, we're being specifically directed to look at relationship choices from the past. What are the past-life karmas of relationships and alliances that we are living out now? Not only personal relationships, but state and racial relationships, relationships of humans to other tribes (physical and devic), relationships of star beings to each other and to us, the multiple texture of relationships which comprise our sense of reality. Pluto's sextile to Chiron offers possibilities of deep healings, while Jupiter's conjunction with Mercury gives us the opportunity to bond more deeply with Earth. The implications of shifts undertaken at an Eclipse reverberate throughout the year to come. This celestial event is of course happening during the NATO summit here in Chicago. As such, it is an opportunity to revisit the political and economic issues which prompted the creation of NATO in the first place, out of the holocaust of WWII, to assess what was accomplished by this alliance (alignment of forces) to good ends or bad. And of course, to 'Occupy Chicago' with our voices and choices about how to avoid future holocausts, martial, economic or political, as we decide where we go from here.
SUN MAY 20 - NEW MOON ECLIPSE SHAMANIC DREAM CIRCLE
Our Sunday Dream Circle will actually be meeting as the Eclipse takes place (see above), allowing us to feel ourselves 'shifting fates', realigning reality. Meeting in Circle draws in and makes available to us a collective energy, allowing us to listen to our own souls and then amplify our message to Spirit as to what we want to create.
7-10 p.m. 1428 W Jarvis. $10-20 requested. Snacks to share deeply appreciated. If possible please let me know ahead you're considering attending (email or 773.761/0252). Bring your dreams, schemes, memes, themes, demes, moonbeams. Your friends, your fates, your fetes, your fantasies, your malodies, your melodies, your ecstasies, your plees and please. It's shamanic dream time!
First time? ask for directions, as there are a couple tricks finding the place. RSVP email or 773.761.0252.

Let me first express my deep gratitude to all of you who made it to one or more of the 10-Year Anniversary Circles! Turn-out was terrific, with old and new Dreamers joining in. Looking back at the 3 Circles (Sept 11, 16, 25), I discern a clear pattern or direction. Our Sept 11 Circle included many old-timers, including one who actually set the circles in motion 10 years ago, as well as other 'dream elders'. There was much focus on the past and what had happened in our lives in the last 10 years. Sept 16 was less coherent, with many shifts: what first looked like it might be a moderate sized group was pruned with a number of cancellations the day of; then new people calling and the numbers started going up again. Some people arrived very early, some very late, and the focus of the group kept changing, as if we were trying to figure out who we were. By contrast, last night most people had confirmed well ahead, and though there were a few slipping in late and a few surprise guests, the evening was deep and focused, as though we were confident of ourselves and our connection to each other, and our ability to Dream the our New Worlds. It was truly a lovely and optimistic circle, summing up the past and preparing us for the future! Thank you, thank you, both to those who came to the 3 circles, those who couldn't make it physically but joined their energies in, and all those over the ten years who at one point or another have been part of our Dream!
In addition, I would like to ask for suggestions or comments on what you would like to see or experience in future circles. Would you like music during the meditations? More focused teaching? Something more physical? Sound circles? Let me know your ideas, and we'll try to work them in - without sacrificing the basic formula that has been working so well for us!
