Exciting local Santa Fe astrology buffs, The Astro Assembly of Santa Fe met for the first time Wednesday night at the Oxygen Bar, downtown’s hip healing place. The Assembly is the reincarnation of lively astrology gatherings that Santa Feans regularly packed for many years. Now they’re back every second Wednesday of the month and open to all. Welcoming facilitator and astrology author Steven McFadden back to Santa Fe, the audience enjoyed a couple of his aligning exercises to get in the mood to listen and participate in discussions about the current planetary positions and their portent.
Steven is a great story-teller and teacher. He began with a discussion of the Fire Monkey year we’re currently in, according to Chinese astrology. (Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected in a Fire Monkey Year; revolutionary 1968 was a Fire Monkey Year).
One of the characteristics of the Fire Monkey that caught my attention is that the magical monkey can see right through people and all the lies they tell. That’s one reason revolutions can happen in a Fire Monkey Year. The status quo hated FDR but people saw through the establishment’s lies and elected him anyway!
The first Star Speaker guest was Evolutionary Astrologer Daniel Fiverson. He planned to talk about the Mars and Pluto retrogrades coming up on April 17th and 18th, (a big re-evaluation within..see my April 2016 newsletter), but went with the flow of peoples’ questions and whether this is actually the time and place when revolutionary choices are made, like in other Fire Monkey years.
When tricks and switches and surprises prevail as they do ‘til the bitter end of 2016, it’s hard to predict! As an evolutionary astrologer, Daniel pointed out that most of the people in attendance were born when Pluto was in Leo; they were the ones in 1968 to plant the seeds of social revolution in the United States. However, who is going to actually make revolutionary changes stick and become our reality? It will be the people being born now and in recent generations will get the job done.
However, I just watched a huge crowd in New York give Bernie Sanders a standing ovation in his closing comments at the 9th Democratic debate. The America he envisioned was a great place to live, and one that calls for a revolution to manifest, so maybe there are enough young people already voting age to get the social justice ball rolling.
Next month’s Santa Fe Astro Assembly is on May 11th, 7-8:30 pm at the Oxygen Bar, 102 W. San Francisco street. The near future of the city of Santa Fe will be at least one hot topic, with Steven discussing the city’s chart and the summer season… he sees exciting developments and mentioned June as being a significant month. I’m honored to be the “Star Speaker” for May, and plan to do some interactive group divination with my Speaking Stones, and bring a psychic perspective to May’s planets and what they mean for us individually and collectively. Please come to listen, participate, and get a head’s up from the stars above! Meetings are free/by donation to the Oxygen Bar for hosting.
When I first moved to Santa Fe in the eighties, I took frequent road trips to check out New Mexico and its ancientness. Somehow, I never came across a petroglyph site just a few miles south of Santa Fe, right off Airport Road, that boasts hundreds of petroglyphs in the basalt cliffs, especially of kokopellis and birds.
La Cieneguilla Petroglyph site is 3.5 miles south of 599, marked by a sign and a big parking lot. It’s a steep but short climb and the views are fantastic – 360 degrees! I’ve seen very little of the site so far, but came across a huge cave with a blackened roof from many fires, and a snake petroglyph on the wall outside. Very nice piece of real estate with views overlooking valleys and mountains.
It’s a Mercury retrograde, so naturally this month’s healing and intuition circle is going to be a little later than expected! The May Circle is now Saturday the 30th, here are the particulars:
The workshop is about two hours, and includes a psychic message and healing circle, a transformative art card process, and guided meditations to get you in touch with your own intuition and healing resources. We’ll also work with divination tools for psychic development.
May 30th Astrology: Sun and Mercury are conjunct, great for healing, communicating with the high self, and seeing the light about anything! The moon is in Scorpio, trine Neptune, very good for working with intuition and creativity.

Here’s a link to the audio version of the text below, all about the next two weeks and new beginnings. Below is the text…tell me how you like listening to it as opposed to reading it, it’s something new!
February 2015 New Moon Report
February 18th: It’s a new moon in Aquarius today, the sign of innovation. What works in the next couple of weeks, is uniqueness! So be yourself, and invest your time in what uniquely fulfills you. And whatever you’re truly excited to create has the best chance of impressing others.
The moon slips into Pisces only a moment later. In Pisces, whatever you want to achingly accomplish or get into, you can go very deep with.
Being a good partner is another focus in this new moon cycle. Starting with yourself:
You can’t do everything, you can’t be everywhere… you might have to say no to people and make some sacrifices. Make em! In March there’ll be more time to have fun and goof off. But do take time to daydream…your creative self needs space-out time, and it’ll come up with visions that lead to new worlds.
With other people, they’ll appreciate brevity. Brevity is a sign of truly getting along and a partnership that can work.
New partnerships could be very fruitful, ones that keep on yielding surprises and like Pisces, can go deep.
Santa Fe is nearing the epicenter of its Summer cultural explosion, and the sounds of daily goings-on waft up from the Plaza. July’s big event is the International Folk Art Mart (…be at the opening dress parade and dance at the Railyard Thursday night!) although, now every month seems to have more celebrations. And more new music venues, even free concerts way down on Cerrillos Road!
Another neat new addition to gatherings aound town are food trucks selling some excellent food, especially the one from the Street Food Institute.
Coming in August is the highly anticipated Indian Market, held for the first time in history by two different organizations, one being a break-away of Native Americans who want to run their own show. That new one is called the Indigenous Fine ArtMarket or IFAM, and will be held at the Railyard. It kicks off with an interesting-sounding event called a “Glow Dance Party” on August 20th at the Den.
My July began with something new, a three day Creative Journey workshop. It was fun and exciting and kind of like being in magic camp. I’ll be doing more circles and workshops soon, when I catch up with myself. Dreaming up magical and healing things to do with people is very exhilarating! And challenging in the same way private sessions used to be challenging: following what I receive, and not what I conceive.
I can’t imagine a better place to do this work than Santa Fe, people are refreshed by a lot of different factors unique to the area. I’ll post participants’ comments on my website’s workshop page.
I hope you have a delightful Summer wherever you are, happy trails and may they take you to pleasant surprises.
Here are authors’ descriptions and link to each:
New Tarot Card Meaning Article: “Predicting Your Trip”
A lot happens in July, it’s a long and eventful month. For individuals and countries, fateful decisions and directions begin to shape up, potentially life-changing.
Best goal: Get Healthy
Best action to take: Suspend self-doubt for one month and surrender to your heart’s desire. Don’t stop yourself in July.
Meet new friends! Meet new friends!
Jupiter in Leo: July 16th-August 15th. From inner growth to outer…hearts open, individual people doing great things make a big impact, and people gain new courage to be themselves.
Here’s a poem from the spirit of Jupiter in Cancer, where it’s been for the last year, causing people to grow up emotionally:
Winging it towards new dreams.”
At some point between the June and July newsletters, I posted an article about Summer, (the Here it is from my blog:
Call on your Guides: The potential for spiritual development is high, so if you ever wanted to experiment with just what kind of help is personally available to you, try calling on your spiritual guides this summer! It’s as simple as being curious and receptive and willing to expand your circle of support. Let yourself be empty and in the present, have an open heart, and permit whatever has your best interests in mind to give you a message.
Fire signs: Aries is fired up, saying, “I really want this, I really want this-your determination is awesome. Leo: You’re happy and stronger, but you’ll be happier if you don’t go to extremes, and come to love being able to function with a steady strong pulse, and not a wildly vacillating one. Be smart, calm, strong, wise, and willing to change. Sagittarius: You’re focused and could be in a hurry to reach your goals. Spiritual experiences are enlighting if you’re willing to go off on your own and have a vision and be out of context for awhile. Spiritual growth is a pleasant journey now. Seek new connections-a new goal can be realized in November. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Water signs are capable of seeing deep truths now. Cancer: I’m happier than usual, yay! Scorpio: High flying! Wheeling and dealing! Excitement abounds…Pisces: What’s new stretches you, but then you have had past lives that are now inner resources; inherent ability is yours and comes through. (Message from making tones for each sign.)
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: There’s a lot of activity around home for you this month, and it will feel like a safe haven. Knowing your limits is another way to create a safe haven. You’ll need to recharge many times, especially around July 18th. Your creativity takes on a life of its own, and you’ll get signs from the world about concerning where it can take you. (Message from the Speaking Stones)
Earth signs: Taurus: Breakthrough! Positive! Hopeful…and you see a higher place for yourself. (Just wait, it’s coming!) Virgo: You should be plowing into something new, and overturning old connections for what’s valuable. Money and commerce are on your mind. Capricorn: Expect a huge growth spurt in July, it could even be astonishing. (Message from making tones for each sign).
Spiritual Guidance for the Fire, Water, Air and Earth Signs for July 2014
(I actually forgot I’d already written horoscopes for July, the week before my three-day Creative Journey workshop on June 29th. I did the ones below on July 1st):
Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs: Take it easy. Stop worrying about the future, and take care of stuff that obviously needs to be taken care of. Keep taking care of things and don’t worry where it leads to. This is a month not to doubt yourself. You cannot see the future right now and don’t try to-focus on improving your health, if you don’t see anything else that needs doing.
Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs: An old identity is all used up. It is absolutely clear you can move into the future with a stronger Self. Now you can do things you couldn’t do before. A new chapter has conclusively begun and calls on new courage and character, which you now have. You can count on yourself to go the distance in a new direction.
Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air sgns: Some problems are over! You get to graduate; there is a way to a place you belong and it makes you happier. Excellent signs for marriage and in general being fulfilled in new roles.
Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn Earth signs: You establish yourself in new digs, or change your environment to make it reflect what moves you. It’s hard to do anything now but what is heartfelt. You are pushed in new directions by your own evolutionary impulses. Keep on going, everything’s fine.
I’ll be a guest on Pam Drinnon Cosmic Contacts show tomorrow at 5:30 pm MST, and taking psychic call-ins questions…the moon’s in Can-Do Capricorn, good for practical guidance like, “I want to expand my business…is this a good time and what’s the next best step?”
What makes radio call-in shows interesting is that so many listening can identify with the change the caller is going through, either up or down on the unavoidable roller coaster of personal growth. The best way to get psychic insight, (whether you are asking your own inner guidance to supply it, or someone else’s), is to first check in with yourself to make perfectly sure you’re willing to hear whatever your heart has to say. The reason that after, you can just get guidance and quickly “go within” to receive it, is that you are vitally interested in yourself, and your intuition applies itself to what you’re interested in.
But in order to get someone else interested, you have to give a background sentence so it is a story people may want to follow, may identify with…for instance: “I’ve learned just about all I ever want to learn about being alone and now I want a partner..” Callers might want to know what’s going on with their relationship, but to just ask “what do you see about my relationship”, is not interesting–nobody can identify with someone asking a psychic what they see for an anonymous person with no introduction or connection. If you’re on the air, you gotta share! (Just one explanatory sentence about why you’re calling is good.)
The number to call to ask a question is 347-838-9142. Show time: 5:30 pm MST. Below is Pam’s email blast:
