Happy New Year, Happy New World

Deep Peace by Donovan

Deep peace of the running wave to you;
Deep peace of the flowing air to you;
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you;
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you;
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you;
Deep peace to you.


What are YOU envisioning for the New Year, the new dawn?

Birthing a New World

The Grand Conjunction of December 21, 2020 carries the blueprint of our world for the next 20 years. The Collective Spirit of Change.

These potent energies are the doorway into a golden age and a more loving world. It’s time to Evolve.

The arts, including writing, will revive in a special way, as we are entering a new Renaissance. A Renaissance emphasizes the arts as agents of change. Artists have a special ability to engage their creativity to go into the quantum field and manifest in the physical world. Visionary Fiction writers do so by catalyzing a transformation of consciousness with their stories.

St Francis of Assisi explains the creative process this way: “The woman who works with her hands is a laborer; the woman who works with her hands and her head is a craftswoman; the woman who works with her hands, and her heart is an artist.”

“May the artist within each of us rise up and create!”  ~ Cathy Pagano

Loving, warm blessings for this magical and potent Solstice and Grand Conjunction.


What New World are you birthing?

Happy Winter Solstice and Grand Conjunction!

Happy Winter Solstice and Grand Conjunction! What a powerfully significant day!

This photo of Chalice Well in Glastonbury, England, is decorated beautifully for the Winter Solstice. The Chalice Well is one of my favorite spots on earth and a source of deep peace and inspiration to me. It is central to each one of my Visionary Fiction novels as well. 

Today, the Winter Solstice brings us the longest night and subsequent return to the Light. Astrologically, today also heralds the long-awaited Grand Conjunction, the threshold into the golden Age of Aquarius. A time of being the best we can envision. A time of embodied love, peace, collaboration, and cooperation for our collective humanity. 

You will see the planets Jupiter and Saturn close together (Grand Conjunction), shining as one, in the south-western sky after sunset.

What will you envision into being during this potent new era?

The Age of Aquarius


‘When the moon is in the Seventh House

And Jupiter aligns with Mars

Then peace will guide the planets

And love will steer the stars

This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius

Age of Aquarius

Harmony and understanding

Sympathy and trust abounding

No more falsehoods or derisions

Golden living dreams of visions

Mystic crystal revelation

And the mind's true liberation

Let the sunshine, let the sunshine in, the sunshine in.’

~ sung by the ensemble group ‘The Fifth Dimension’

Do you remember the song “The Age of Aquarius” released in 1968? I was a very young teenager and I saw them perform it live on stage at, of all places, the Michigan State Fair. The song captured the hearts and imaginations of millions, promising a golden new age to come.

I am in no way an astrologer. But I do know, from many sources, that what is called The Grand Conjunction in the sign of Aquarius (the sign of the collective mindset and consciousness) is occurring on Monday December 21, 2020. This is what the ensemble group The Fifth Dimension sang about. You will be able to gaze upon the stars and see a juxtaposition of Saturn and Jupiter, their shining bodies nearly touching in the night sky, forming a luminous orb of light 

This promising astrological conjunction occurs the same day as the Winter Solstice. Both of these events herald the dark night opening out and letting the light in. The light of peace, harmony, and understanding. No more illusions, a time for the way of the heart, the song and the astrologers tell us.

Visionary Fiction authors write about shifts in consciousness. A profound shift of consciousness will be happening in ‘real’ life during this Conjunction/Solstice. It will not happen overnight of course, but the portal will be opened, the threshold inviting us to cross into a new way of being.  I, for one, will celebrate this potent event with meditation, prayer, and ritual honoring my vision of the new dawn. 

My vision of a new dawn is one of the evolutionary force of embodied love. The sacred feminine divine heart emerging and made manifest. 

What is your vision of the Age of Aquarius?
