Equinox Gateway 2022

The Equinox gateway is open, my friends! It started on 22 of September 2022. All those 2s give me chills!…in a good way. 

This Equinox date marks the start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere and spring in the Southern Hemisphere. 

The Equinox is a spiritually potent time, as the veil between realms is thinner than usual. Maybe that’s why you have been feeling an overwhelming urge to travel to the home you grew up in and connect with old memories? Or perhaps you need to spend some time with family, talking about loved ones who have passed, creating a family tree or scrapbook. Strengthening family roots will make you feel grounded and aligned to life beyond what we can see. It’s a great time to ask your ancestors to support you and to petition on behalf of other family members too.  

During an equinox, the Sun crosses what we call the “celestial equator” — an imaginary extension of Earth’s equator line into space. The equinox occurs precisely when the Sun’s center passes through this line.

Just a word of caution: the information, downloads, flashbacks, DNA upgrades, dreams, new codes and experiences at this time can be very overwhelming. You need to find ways to TRANSMUTE, ANCHOR, GROUND & CHANNEL it all. Use the four elements of nature (earth, water, air & fire) to assist you as far as possible. 

I plan to harvest some lovely cannabis (earth), spend time soaking in the bathtub with my man (water), hike in the fresh mountain (air) and also write a few release letters which I plan to burn in a ritual (fire). I also plan to cook something warm and delicious and I will definitely be using an onion or two. I don’t know if you know this superstition about the Autumn equinox but legend has it that the onion’s skin has a lot to tell about the kind of Winter that you’re going to have. Thin skin= fairly easy one. Thick skin = …well, let’s just say ….get the Kleenex ready.  Ha ha ha!  

Let me know how it shapes up for you.  

Sending you Libra season love and wishes of balance, 

Cara 

P.S. Please remember that Mercury is still retrograde until October 3rd. Watch your words! There is a big cautionary about gossip/hearsay/miscommunication/arguments/judgement.

Did the August 2022 Astrology rattle you?

Wow Friends, we survived August! Well almost.

I feel like we all deserve a pat on the back. There were so many notable planetary features including our 4th Supermoon in a row, 5 retrogrades, The Perseids Meteor Shower, Solar Explosions, 8:8 Sirius Rising and Saturn directly opposite the Sun. The energy has been go-go-go and we are all feeling a bit shattered from it!  

I’ve kept my head down mostly because I’ve been working on a new manifesting technique that I hope to share with you in the future.  

But astrologically speaking, everything that we have been going through is for a greater purpose as the old continues to crumble. We are in a period of accelerated evolution like we have not seen before; quite literally upgrading our DNA & consciousness in order to move on to the next stage of our evolution as a species.

The question I’ve been asking myself is how to keep on my path towards greater love & unity consciousness and not slide back down the rabbit hole of doubt, fear, lack, and separation during this time.

A little voice reminded me, Cara, you’ve got great tools to keep your vibration high. Use them!

My tools include:

  • Yoga
  • Making Love 
  • Cannabis 
  • Talking to myself on long drives 
  • Family
  • Divination 
  • Community (I’ve found a great new online Cannabis tribe) 
  • Meditation 
  • Visualization
  • Earthing
  • LOTS and LOTS of WATER

I’m sure you have many tools too. I encourage you to make a list and to use them to keep your focus on what’s important. The stars foretell of a chaotic couple of months to come. 

Here’s an affirmation for you during these times:

I am loved and supported in all ways at all times.

My Love Affair with Cannabis

I’ve always thought Cannabis is like a woman: layers and layers; Persecuted and revered – full of magic and wonder!  

As you know, I am a big fan of this highly revered plant that has been cultivated for centuries. I have many years of experience in dealing with it. My lived experience is very practical (it helps me with concentration, to relax, and get out of my head) but it is most definitely also spiritual, helping to open my heart center by freeing my mind.  Our brains are full of cannabinoid receptors in areas of the brain related to behavior, thought, and mood. When cannabinoids in cannabis interact with these receptors, they produce euphoric, relaxing effects. 

Several factors can influence the effects—dosage, quality, strain, frequency and method of use. Different parts of this plant also have different uses. For example, I used a CBD concentrate for many years to calm my nerves. 

Before the recreational use of cannabis, it was often used as a tool for spiritual awakening, ceremony and meditation. It has deep roots in indigenous traditions on every continent and has been popular in India since the beginning of recorded history. According to legend, the Hindu God Shiva wandered off into the fields after a fight with his family. He was so drained after the fight that he fell asleep and when he woke up, he saw a plant that interested him. He sampled the leaves and felt instantly better. 

Goddess of Compassion and Mercy

So, how do we use edibles, candies, smokes, cookies or bhang (a popular drink in India) in a more spiritual way? Well, for starters, we have to align with the frequency of the plant in order to go beyond the superficial. Once there is a vibrational match, the next step is to be INTENTIONAL and RESPECTFUL. No one does this better than my husband Richard. He keeps records every season of what he has grown, how he fertilized it and when he harvested it. Talk about respect! 

One of the best birthday gifts I ever received was from Richard’s friend Joe who I share a birthday with. He gave me a CBD strain called Ringo’s Gift. It was creamy and smooth like a vanilla milkshake! It left me feeling grounded and peaceful, clear and focused and that first feeling stayed with me until this day. 

I am sure you can tell how passionate I am about this subject and I would love to engage and share more. If you would like to use cannabis for medical reasons, please consult a medical professional.

Otherwise, explore, grow and transform,
