Living in attunement to the Lunar Cycles cultivates a body-mind awareness that allows us to participate with an inner peace and a level of trust that our moment-by-moment experience—no matter what it is—is unfolding within a natural spiral of experiential growth. Rather than being tossed to and fro in our life experience without understanding it, we come to understand our daily experience in the context of this natural underlying rhythm, and thus participate in harmony with it.
Each lunar cycle unfolds in a natural progression, much like a seedling grows into a plant that flowers and bears fruit. The progression of one lunar cycle to the next creates a natural and continuing spiral of personal growth and evolutionary opportunity. Knowing of this natural progression and where we reside in it on a daily basis allows us to relax and comfortably breathe in the unfoldment of our life experience, in time and in tune with it. Rather than living in grief over the past and worry about the future, attempting to control and force outcomes in an endless struggle, we find ourselves relaxing into and living in the power of the present. Cultivating our capacity to live in the present brings us the sensitivity to intimately trust in the natural tides of our experiential unfoldment.
Using the Lunar Planner on a daily basis provides a way to participate in harmony with our own biological rhythms and with all of nature. It cultivates a capacity to embrace—with true compassion, unconditional acceptance, and with emotional peace—the powerful transitions occurring in our lives and in the lives of those around us. As we learn to consciously participate with this natural cycle, we come to experience our lives unfolding like a musical score. Rather than fighting our daily experience, or attempting to force outcomes that are out of touch with our true path, we learn to embrace our experience in the unconditional acceptance that makes possible true inner change. Life becomes a graceful dance—when the times are peaceful as well as during the most tumultuous of times.
Simply download the "Lunar Planner Introduction" and each month's "Lunar Calendar" and use them together on a daily basis. Both are FREE to all visitors.
The Lunar Planner Introduction is a several page document that explains how the Lunar Cycle works. It reveals the characteristics of each lunar phase and how each of the eight lunar phases shift from one to the next. The Lunar Planner Introduction will teach you how to participate in harmony with this natural cycle. Here you will learn about the natural progression of growth and opportunity each lunar cycle offers. You will learn when it is a time to allow a new cycle's theme to emerge; when to allow an inspirational process to occur regarding it ; when to engage in creative action based upon our inspiration; when it is a time for social activity and communication; when it is a time of realization about the current lunar cycle; when it is time to manifest the fruit of the lunar cycle, to embody its gift; when it is a time to make life changes based upon the realizations gained in the cycle; and when it is time to surrender to allow the next cycle to engage.
Referring to the "Lunar Phase Characteristics Chart" in the introduction while using each month's Lunar Calendar will experiential teach you to live in attunement to the Lunar Cycles. This will soon become a natural process as you use these documents. Learning to live in attunement to the Lunar Cycles is not only empowering, it is fun.
Although not required to learn to live in attunement to the Lunar Cycles, complimenting the monthly Lunar Calendar is the Monthly Lunar Planner Commentary, which is available by subscription. The Month Lunar Planner Commentary is an in-depth astrological exploration of each lunar cycle based in star-level astronomical astrology.

On each New Moon, the Sun and Moon align with specific stars in the heavens that provide unique cosmic qualities that express throughout the lunar cycle. The New Moon alignments reveal the theme of each lunar cycle. As the lunar cycle unfolds, the Moon creates new stellar alignments at each lunar phase transition. These stellar alignments as well as those occuring with all of the planets, reveal a detailed picture of the unfolding Lunar Cycle.
Observing the Sun, Moon and planetary alignments to specific stars and to the astronomical constellations of the entire heavens, beyond the bounds of the modern day astrological signs, reveals the transcendent currents and evolutionary themes that guide our experience. Astronomical (sidereal-based) Astrology is the interpretive exploration of these alignments as they are experienced and seen as if we were looking directly into the Heavens.
The tapestry of spiraling lunar themes, along with the themes of interweaving planetary alignments, eloquently reveals the greater story line that directs the evolutionary unfoldment of human consciousness and that molds our daily experience. Month by month, lunar chapter by lunar chapter, we come to see our experiences in a new light and clarity, as part of a grand divine symphony.
Astronomical Sidereal Astrology and the Lunar Calendar are fundamental to the natural, experiential world. Because they are observances of that which is occurring in the natural world, they serve as wonderful tools to get ourselves in tune with the physical and grounded aspects of life, as well as with the real inner metamorphosis occurring in our personal and collective consciousness.
Living in experiential attunement to the unfolding lunar phases, with awareness of the monthly lunar themes that guide our lives, supports us to embrace our profound personal experiences and the global transitions occurring for all of humanity with far greater understanding and compassion. In this awareness, we find ourselves making conscious and responsible choices that help facilitate our personal transformation and spiritual awakening, and that manifest this inner awareness as true personal fulfillment in our daily lives.
Astronomical Mythology is the "picture language" of the Greater Heavens, the language of Astronomical Astrology. This imagery articulates the qualities of cosmic intelligence expressing throughout the greater heavens and throughout our lives. I use mythological star lore to articulate our human experience from within the greater perspective that we are evolving souls participating in the unfoldment of an embracing Creative Intelligence. Our daily experiences are seen in the context of this unfolding Intelligence supporting nothing less than our highest attainment and realization of Universal Love.
Modern astronomical and cosmological language is also a picture language. Terms like black hole, quasar, dark matter, etc., are simply names to convey pictures or concepts in our minds about the phenomena we observe. We often mistake these terms, the pictures they may formulate in our minds, and the cosmological concepts we formulate with them, to be factual descriptions of reality when in fact they are merely descriptions of that which we do not fully comprehend, descriptions of the unknown.
Modern astronomical and cosmological language continually becomes obsolete as we expand our awareness because the terms like black hole or gravity no longer adequately describe the more embracing awareness we gain. Whether we use the old Newtonian physics, which defines a gravity-driven universe, or newer cosmological models like a plasma-based universe that may better describe that there is no empty space between ourselves or between that which we observe in the heavens, they are still merely "descriptions" fitting to our current level of comprehension. However, these descriptions, the mythical language of the heavens, is a tool, like any language, that can be used to artfully explore the nature of our experiential evolution in consciousness.
"Within the province of the mind, what I believe to be true is true or becomes true, within the limits to be found experientially or experimentally. These limits are further beliefs to be transcended."
We are not separate from the greater heavens, from the stars and planets around us, or from our beloved Earth, but are intimate parts of this dynamic, continually unfolding heavenly symphony. This entirety is our cosmic consciousness, the totality of our being, a living intelligent inclusive substance of which we belong. To explore the greater heavens in any language is to explore that which we are—our embracing consciousness and our spiritual awakening.
The Sun changes sidereal signs around mid-month when looking from Earth as Earth orbits the Sun.
From the Sun's view (a heliocentric perspective), Earth resides in the opposite sign that the Sun resides in.
The times and loactions of Each New Moon and each Lunar Plase are shown in each month's Lunar Calendar.
The changing phases of the Moon are the result of the interaction between the Sun, Earth and Moon. The Moon is the way, the RELATIONSHIP, between the Sun (the sphere of the Soul) and the Earth (the sphere of our incarnate personality). Living in concert with the changing phases of the Moon, (the experiential / emotional world) serves us to integrate Solar / Sol / Soul awareness into our physical lives. It turns (tunes) the key of our experiential / emotional world to open the door to the Golden Light of our Souls.
Like a musical score, this celestial unfoldment provides the currents that underlie and guide our participation in life's greater evolutionary symphony. Living in attunement to the natural astronomical cycles of life facilitates the integration of the greater cosmic energies infusing into the Earth and ourselves—integration of the very Intelligence that is responsible for our spiritual awakening and that supports us to manifest our Divine Destiny.
Ascension is the embodiment of the totality of our soul essence—to infuse our higher vibrational light bodies into our incarnate forms—to incarnate fully and illuminate, and thus to live in quantum or unified galactic awareness (Soul-Source Aware). Ascension is the refinement of the vibrational mode of the body, not leaving the body. The vibrational mode of the body is tuned by the hydrogen atom, which composes the phosphodiester (light-bearing) circuitry or lattice that forms the double-stranded DNA molecule. The hydrogen atom is also the primary component of the intercellular water that makes up our bodies. The structure of this water, or lymph (which means living spring), is determined by the resonance of the hydrogen atom and its bonding angle which organizes water's molecular form.
Hydrogen is the Mother Element, the element of the Sun / Soul. The DNA is the "Urn of the Soul." Our soul intelligence, or subtle-energy light-body, expresses through the DNA, which in-turn articulates our entire mental-emotional-physical selves. The current tuning of the DNA impedes the flow of consciousness, our soul intelligence only trickles through the DNA, not quite lighting it up. Thus, the double-stranded molecule functions in its lower-vibrational (reflective) mode of shadow and reflection, of bio-logic—the mentalization of life, where we use the reasoning process only comparing opposites to learn. This is why we perceive and experience a world a shadow and reflection—the world of duality. It is also why we continue to experience pain and struggle and live in disharmony, disease, degeneration, and death rather than in radiant health and unified awareness.
As the atomic mode of hydrogen is re-tuned, the DNA molecule can begin to super-conduct consciousness. When this fully occurs, the DNA may illuminate into one radiant spiral of light, which I believe is the DNA's intended functional mode. If this were to occur, we would no longer experience a world of shadow and reflection but one of radiant light. We no longer would function as bio-logical beings, but as unified bio-luminescent beings in galactic awareness (in God consciousness / cosmic consciousness). We would realize (in epistemological awareness) rather than mentalize as we become self-realized beings of light at one in universal love.
The DNA's current dysfunctional mode, (I suggest) is not due to our own doing, having done something wrong, but is a function of the tuning of the astrophysical system in which we exist; i.e., Earth's orientation in our solar system and our solar system's orientation in our galaxy. In addition, the transition in the DNA functional modality from an unillumined to illumined mode is governed by the continually changing tuning of our evolutionary astrophysical system. See Earth's Precessional Cycle.
As we move through this cycle, Earth's polar axis geometrically reorients in its evolutionary system—Earth's solar gravomagnetic field reorients in the unified field of galactic awareness. As this occurs, the atomic mode of hydrogen also reorients, or re-tunes (returns), to a galactic based resonance. Thus, our state of perceptual awareness is time-locked with the cycle of Earth's Precessional Cross, which governs the evolutionary unfoldment of consciousness on Earth. The reorientation in our atomic modality causes a phenomenal acceleration of neurological and biological change within our selves. Facilitating this change in our atomic modality is the key to our physical, emotional, and mental wellbeing as we move through the primary evolutionary transition (opportunity) occurring NOW. Hence, the greater value of living in conscious attunement to the natural astrophysical evolutionary cycles.
Soul Infusion, and our subsequent return to unified-field awareness (Christ Consciousness), requires a proper neurological balance. Living in attunement to the solunar cycle is a primary key to help establish this balance. When achieved, a triangular corridor opens (the tuning of the key) in our neurological system (between the Pineal, Hypothalamus, and Pituitary) that allows the decent of the soul through the body.
During this process we must work to fully ground soul down through the mental, emotional and physical layers (or aspects) of self. Doing so allows our entire neurology (our bio-energy centres or chakras) to function at a soul-level resonance. This also allows new types of hormonal secretions from the brain's control centre (the pituitary) that support a refined biological process. The soul-level activation of the DNA awakens our latent future (galactic) coding which in turn allows our transmutation into our refined bio-luminescent form.
As we become soul aware, we become unified beings fully grounded in our bodies rather than being fragmented into apparently separate spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical aspects. In addition, we no longer experience a separation between the totality of our soul's experience (past lives) and our current lives—stretched out in time. We live from the experiential wisdom of our souls' total incarnate experience as the experiences of all of our incarnations coalesce into our embracing here and now awareness...
...a place found only within the deepest folds of our hearts.
