The Interior Castle: The Sagittarius New Moon & Winter Solstice

“The path of meditation has been critical, because I’m a very passionate person. And I have learned to actually down-regulate & to become more sensitive without being hyper-aroused, which would cause me to withdraw.

A near enemy to compassion is sorrow. And that’s that sorrow, that’s me getting wrecked by the picture of the child in the newspaper so that I can’t actually help them.

This is why I meditate. To be useful.”

~ Joan Halifax

This is my favorite time of year. Not because of the Christmas music & the gifts, but because of the looming darkness.

Yep, I am one of those freaks that love the short days, the fire, the long dreaming nights. The same way I love the time before dawn. Sometimes I think I have missed my calling as a true monastic but then again . . I love to dance in the sun too much.

Actually it was in my contemplation on the dark that I recently was reflecting on the writings of Plato & specifically the famous allegory of The Cave ~ (I suggest you check it out but here is a  very simple version) ~

There is a civilization living in cave that are experiencing life through a continual play of shadows on the wall, basically a puppet show that is run by someone behind them, placing objects before a fire. This puppet master also creates the voices & this is all the people know. They are shackled. They are prisoners.

Above them people walk freely & experience a whole other life of true living, breathing form.

We all have our version of this. Our stories. Our excuses. Our matrixes. I plead with you here to take a moment. Do not think of this as a cliche. That you are already awake. We are all in some version of the cave. There are so many ways to wake up.

In the story of the Cave, Plato speaks about how difficult it is to turn one’s head & stare into the fire & know the truth. How even more terrifying it is to step into the light outside. To move one’s feet & body freely.

This is the invitation. To move freely. To see. To understand the power of the cave. To be compassionate. To be useful.

And it is the absolutely perfect time of year to take some time for deep listening. To prepare yourself to let go. To not continually engage with the negative deluge of information & find the true invitation.

I support you.

“The increased pace of data you have to process is beyond your capability as a biological organism to cope with & you are shifting ~ as a culture ~ to a technologically-based reality.

As a result of this dependence upon technology you are entering a type of techno-servitude . . . Were you a truly benevolent species, the acceleration of your technological culture could advance the quality of all life, but you are not collectively a benevolent species. And some of the newly emerging technologies that could enhance planetary life are being commandeered by forces that wish to control & enslave.

From one perspective what you are experiencing in your world is catastrophic in nature. From another perspective it is a highly potent evolutionary catalyst. In other words, the metamorphosis of your world could destroy you or propel you into higher states of consciousness. The choice, at an individual level, between personal destruction or an ascent into a higher dimensional reality is yours.”

This month’s Lunar Prayer is a perfect way to begin your new practices with integrity. The Sagittarius New Moon (December 18) falls just a few days before Winter Solstice. It is the ultimate seat of wisdom: a perfect time to connect with the unknown & set your deepest intentions in place.

{Including Winter Solstice & New Year Prayers}


When you have grown still on purpose while everything around you is asking for your chaos, you will find the doors between every room of this interior castle thrown open, the path home to your true love unobstructed after all. Waste no time. Enter the center of your soul.

~ St Teresa of Avila

It has been an incredibly rigorous year & you have done quite well. It has been an honor to support you in your relentless intentions to be  the person you know yourself to me.

The path that has haunted you from birth as well as the burden of all the misconceptions & seemingly false paths (nothing is by accident), have led you to this moment in time, a clearing in your personal & historic chaos.

One the one hand, this miraculous lunar cycle may feel like merely a respite, a place to feed & clothe yourself, rest up before the next weary journey.

However, if you have the ability to employ both stillness & rigorous honesty, this time in the Interior Chapel can be a time of homecoming.

To truly inhabit & furnish this place of authentic soul purpose is yours. You have earned it. Let me support you in staying. Staying & trusting.

This is your personal invitation to THE INTERIOR CASTLE : The Sagittarius/Cancer Lunar Practice.


A DIY package complete with video astral revelations, altar suggestions, prescription for diet, essence & kriya & personalized mantra

available each monthly cycle new moon to new moon

Build & maintain a practice of clear vision beginning on The Sagittarius New Moon December 18.

Love above all, always & forever.
