The Mars-Venus transit has just finished its last dance in our Milky Way this past November 1st completing a very important happening in our lives and times; the universe shows us though this planetary event that male-female energy must come back into balance. The male-female within each of us and outside of us needs to find its way back to a more compassionate existence, a more peaceful, nurturing, matriarchal consciousness – very much the matriarchal consciousness that was buried and demonized which threw the world out of balance to begin with.
We need to be reminded of that matriarchal consciousness – the Divine Feminine which is re-awakening. We, each of us needs to re-claim our Divine Feminine and we need to 'crown' ourselves. This process starts from within. I have been at Wellness events where women come up to my table, pick up my crowns, and say, “I was just thinking, I need a crown!” “Why, YES. YOU. DO,” I answer back. I encourage them to make their own because it is the process of making one that is most important. Your crown already exists; you’ve owned it through eternity.
While I earned my Masters in education, I particularly loved studying theory. One of my favorite theorists, the one I base all of my teaching on, was Lev Vygotskey who was a sort of renegade of his time. Vygotsky taught about learning through social context, through play or through one’s own social construct of the world. In other words, the opposite of how we educate, which is so succinctly described in Charles Dicken’s novel, “Hard Times.” Education should not be a method to fill our minds with facts and rules that source from society which suffocate and suppress the genius of our own creativity. Our CREATIVITY should define us, particularly as women since we are the creatrixes.
I extended Vygotsky’s theory and married it to inspired meditations to facilitate a mode to reclaim our Divine consciousness through the social construct of a workshop. We get to ‘play’ while we create a crown spoken to us through our own code of love and light. It is a process to remind us, to reveal truth, and celebrate our feminine. The process to reveal the Divine Feminine is what I define as New Age Feminism, or Divine Feminism whereby we work from within – freeing ourselves from the systemic patriarchal cover-up that has plagued this world suppressing women, and men into an un-balanced world wreaking chaos. This is why we need balance. Balance is key. The pendulum has swung through many faces of feminism, which were important to get us here, however now we need to find center. We find center by lifting the veil and reclaiming our Feminine Divine.
The process by which we avail ourselves to lifting the veil is a personal journey. My crown-making workshops are just one avenue. I urge you that whichever avenue you seek, find one that will also bring you in the company of other women. In her outstanding book, “Reveal,” by Meggan Watterson, her last chapter (she brilliantly calls each chapter a ‘Veil’) she devotes the ‘Seventh Veil’ to speaking about “gatherings of women” and tells us about many groups that existed in history. Gathering with other women in the spirit of love and light, is AMAZING! I am looking forward to attending Meggan Watterson’s “Reveal Retreat” next summer with Kyle Gray, the 'Angel Whisperer.' What a Mars/Venus happening this will be.

I often send crowns to random women who inspire me either with their courage, their sharing of spirit or whatever message I get to do so. I sent one to Tosha Silver – her books amaze me – and as an astrologer she knows the essence and importance of this balance of the male-female energy. I made her crown way before I even knew who I was to send it to, and before I’d even heard about the Mars/Venus transit using gemstones that denoted female/male energy. I called it the Sun/Moon Crown and at just the right moment in time, I was led by spirit to contact her. She wrote about it in her blog which validated my work for me, I mean, sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and ask myself "What are you doing?: Not everyone gets what the crown represents. Tosha Silver does.

And so with 2016 upon us, I find myself thinking about this past November, when the new moon was in my sign of Scorpio, and the Mars/Venus transit danced to its completion, I now contemplate my purpose. It never gets old - this contemplationb- and hopefully I will continue to evolve and renew, however this time around, the Mars/Venus transit hits home in a very big way because I was born a fraternal twin. A psychic once told me that I was supposed to ‘crown’ first, but my twin brother pushed me out of the way five minutes sooner. I guess that this could be why I am obsessed with crowns, though more importantly with creating and helping others to be aware of and create the balance. I was born to do this. Crowns are our very own halos, our crown chakra – our gateway to the Divine our “I am Light,” “I am” presence. That Divine presence IS balance. One needs only to look at Nature to comprehend.
