1 September: Happy New Year!

Here in Australia, it's the last day of winter. From 1 September, we enter a time to stretch, yawn, awaken, reach upward, outward, flex and gravitate to the light.

Our goddess sisters in the northern hemisphere, on the other hand, are saying goodbye to the long, lazy days of summer. Northern sisters are entering the Autumnal phase where days grow shorter and the earth prepares for winter. It is a time for you to cover up, snuggle down and go within.

Either way, 1 September represents a turning point in our consciousness. It is the start of a new year, of sorts. Why wait until the calendar new year, when we can choose to rock into new intentions right now?

What do you hope to achieve in this next stage in the wheel of the year? What do you hope to manifest in the next few weeks or months? Whether you're drawing on the revitalising energy of Spring, or the introspective energy of Autumn, harness both to achieve a long-awaited dream.

What is going to be your "1 September New Year Dream"?

Prayer For You

I'm happy to announce that this is a perfect moment. It's a perfect moment for many reasons, but especially because I have been inspired to say a gigantic prayer for all of you. I've been roused to unleash a divinely greedy, apocalyptically healing prayer for each and every one of you - even those of you who don't believe in the power of prayer...
... and so begins Prayer For You by my favourite philosopher and astrologer, Rob Brezsny. The man is a genius, and funny to boot. If you only buy one book this year (apart from one of mine, ha ha), make it this one

Possibly my favourite line is "And please give them bigger, better, more original sins and wilder, wetter, more interesting problems," although my preference changes regularly. I included a couple more of my favourite verses from Rob's Prayer For You in my newsletter this week, with an invitation to InnerGoddess members to share their favourite line / concept here...
What's your favourite line and why? Which words moved you? Which gutsy prose inspired you to action? Which passionate blurbage bit fired the blood in your veins and a song in your heart?

Numerology advice please...

Over the xmas break, we played Kelly Pool quite a bit with our various guests. We didn't have a "14" button in the bottle so used the number "16" button instead. Later, I found the "14" button on the floor of the lounge. So I put it back in the bottle thinking, "yay, now we have a complete set"...

The next day I found the same button back on the loungeroom floor. What the? Thinking it a bit strange, I put it back in the bottle again. The following day, I found the same button YET AGAIN. For the third time, I put it back in the bottle, and this time told Gavstar what was going on.

He went inside to shake the bottle and see if there were any holes in it (apart from the opening!), when he nearly stepped on the number "7" button sitting on the floor. Two days later, he found the "7" button AGAIN. Again, WHAT THE...?

I was reminded of this story when I went for coffee with a friend a couple of weeks later. She got "number 7" table marker, while I got... NUMBER 14.

Please please please, if you are a numerologist, intuitive or just plain insightful, please, give me a clue! What is the meaning of finding these two numbers together?
