December 2022 Forecast and Fourth Quarter North Node Horoscopes

Laura Bruno's Blog

DECEMBER 2022 FORECAST

We finish 2022 with a shift of energies and a changing worldview. In many ways, the intensity and frustration of 2022 set the stage for a much more eventful 2023. All the Jupiter/Neptune in Pisces energy, plus Mars Retrograde from October 30-January 13, 2023 make it difficult to evaluate 2022 and take action without the benefit of additional hindsight.

This need for review gets amplified by ending the year with Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn. Time to dot your i’s and cross your t’s. Mercury remains Retrograde until January 18, 2023 when Mercury stations Direct on the same day that the Sun conjuncts Pluto. We can expect something deep and profound to arise from our retrospection, but this year ends with a backwards look and suspended animation.

For now, tend to the things you can control and influence. In some cases that might “just” mean prayer and meditation…

New Moon in Sagittarius ~ November 23, 2022 — Laura Bruno’s Blog

Jupiter rules Sagittarius and co-rules Pisces, so this shift from retrograde to direct motion strengthens Jupiter and his domain. Known as “the Great Benefic,” Jupiter […]

The Healing Magic of 432 Hz + Crystals

There’s a magic that happens when we combine crystal energy with sound frequencies:
It has an alchemical harmonizing effect that we experience right down to a cellular level. Congruence is a powerful thing to consider, because right now our world is heavily incongruent (war, illness, pollution, tyrannical politics, social injustice, harmful tech, etc.).The incongruence is felt by our nervous system, which is then destabilizing to the energy patterns of our body, mind, and souls. Conversely, when we experience greater harmony, congruence within, we can re-establish wellness and balance.→ This isn’t a new concept, btw, it’s the fundamental upon which energy healing is based.
So back to 432 Hz and crystals:
Studies have begun to show that listening to music at the frequency of 432 Hz helps to slow our heart rate, lower blood pressure, and deepen our breathing – it has the opposite effect of stress on these systems. What I’ve found is that in pairing 432 hz music with congruent crystal frequencies I feel: a decompressing effect on my nervous system deeper relaxation spaciousness and ease within more grounded presence and embodiment greater compassion for myself and others. My intuition and spiritual connection to the ALL exponentially increases. I experience greater feelings of abundance, possibility, and something very precious to me: HOPE.

Full Moon in Taurus, Lunar Eclipse ~ November 8, 2022

Laura Bruno's Blog

My November 2022 Forecast shared:

November 8 Full Moon in Taurus, Lunar Eclipse, 6:02 a.m. Eastern US time. Also called the “Mourning Moon,” this one occurs on (the scheduled) Election Day in the US. The Full Moon peaks at exactly 16°00′ Taurus, between Uranus and the North Node. This portends an intense day, pointing towards the future. The Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse is: “AN OLD TEACHER FAILS TO INTEREST HIS PUPILS IN TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE. KEYNOTE:The inadequacy of past knowledge in time of crisis.” According to Dane Rudhyar, “We might speak here of the principle of CREATIVE FRUSTRATION.”Mercury and Venus conjunct the Scorpio Sun point. This meeting may temper frustration through love, but nasty, vindictive words, jealousy and revenge could also arise. Depending on events, Uranus and the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse could trigger riots, but hopefully not!

We may already be witnessing some…

Druidry for the 21st Century: Setting and Co-Creating Intentions with Nature

The Druid's Garden

Colorful tree with spiral roots into the earth Nature has so much magic, it benefits us always to work with her!

Intentions are powerful things. They allow us to shape our force of will and set a path forward.  They help us figure out what our own goals are. And I think because of that, we often see them as very personal. This is something that we do for our own purposes. In many western occult traditions, and even in druidry, intentions are often framed as highly internal things: things we set, things we want to manifest, things that help us shape our vision.  You’ll see this very frequently in any ritual work–set your intentions for a ritual, a creation, a space, a new piece of land, and so forth. I think a lot of this is influenced by western occultism, which unfortunately puts the practitioner in a place of power and at the center of a working…
