Greetings fellow spirits! 2009 (Year 2 of a 9 Year Cycle) was also an “11” year (2+0+0+9 =11) ~ and themes ranged from changes in social reform, new and unusual world visions, humanitarian outpourings, innovative blends of both spiritual & technological innovation, building upon the 2008 (1 Year) foundation of the master work, healing the waters of the world…yet lots of duality and opposing polarities at work as well, waiting, patience, incremental progress…
2010 (Universal Year 3) builds upon the polarity of 2009 with the beneficial and expansive energies of THREE energy. Move your visions from 2D to 3D. Open up your imagination and your circle. Trine angles are helpful in astrology, and 2010 will yield additional cooperative forces to help us grow, expand, connect with community, and CO-CREATE. Expect more cause for celebration, growth in group creative endeavors, and greater enthusiasm in 2010.
TAROT CARDS: 3 of Cups, 3 of Wands, the EMPRESS. Also drew THE PIPER from the Froud Faery Oracle for the Year 2010, indicating themes of MUSIC, leadership, harmony, hearing/singing the universal song, and empathy.
CONSCIOUS. COMPASSION. COMMUNITY. COLLABORATE.

2009 YEAR IN REVIEW… released the single “MARY (her story)” from my forthcoming album in the spring of this year, played & shared the stage with many talented musicians, bands, & songwriters in great gigs, festivals, and showcases around the country including a highly revelatory August mini-Magical Mystery Tour (photos and stories here on the blog and on myspace and Facebook) with stops in Los Angeles, Brooklyn, New York City, Maryland, Virginia, Nashville for the Indiegrrl Conference, and my beloved hometown of Washington, DC ~ with “cosmic alignments” abounding and many impromptu visits to temples, churches, parks, museums, and other DC sites resulting in spontaneous piano, drum, and even organ concerts!
Strangely enough, many of the sites visited turned out to be settings for many scenes in the newest pop/cult Dan Brown novel “The Lost Symbol” which came out the next month…curious…
SONG OF THE YEAR : A beautiful new song emerged just for this Magical Mystery Tour ~ “GIVE IT BACK” ~ otherwise known as “the star song” ~ inspired by 2012 prophecies ~ it will be included with the other tracks on A NEW WAY for a Spring 2010 release.
