When I spontaneously did exorcism for the first time of my life, exactly on March equinox, 2015, I had no idea whether demons truly existed. I still had many questions about the truth of the universe and was suddenly discovering a lot after my holotropic-breathwork journey and then being initiated into Sekhem Healing by Sekhmet […]
Anne: One note of hope: my facebook page is off the charts with people furious about this particular act of war by the latest warmongering puppet president. Why do I call this a note of hope? Because in the last few years so few people have even noticed the ongoing systematic genocidal campaign by U.S. military…
Journal Entry 04.07.2017 – Loxahatchee National Wildlife Preserve
Well today I got to see first-hand the damage done by man to the Everglades in the early 20th century. The Loxahatchee National Wildlife Preserve is located only minutes from my new digs in Boynton Beach, so it’s going to become my go-to place for nature, birds, photography and a bit of quiet.
I was a bit shocked to see all of the canal work that had been done, that was the result of government intervention (we all know how that goes…) in the late 1800’s after some disastrous hurricanes. The Everglades were systematically divided up, filled with canals and drained. Untold damage had been done to the natural flushing and cleansing systems of the Glades and Lake Okeechobee. The Preserve was bought from the State in order to preserve and reclaim some of the natural environment. It still bears the scars and equipment from the old days when the land was farmed. Farm land is still located on the edge of the Preserve, to the east. Indeed, this narrow patch of “civilization” on Florida’s SE coastline is bordered by the Glades and Hwy 441 on the west and the Atlantic Ocean on the east, with not that much land in between, but sure a lot of people squeezed into communities.
After arriving at the Visitor’s Center, I took a walk on the .4 mile Cypress Swamp Trail, a nice boardwalk that goes into the woods. I’ve never seen such large ferns. There were leather ferns that had to be 10 feet tall and many other species that I’m not familiar with yet. The flora here is very different from the coastal strand and oak / pine hammock that I found in Northern Florida.
Out on the Marsh Walk, the subdivided marsh was defined by walk ways and canals. There were lots of birds there: Great Blue Heron, Night Heron, Great and Lesser Egrets, Red-winged Black Birds, Cormorant, ducks, coots and moorhens, Roseate Spoonbill, Ibis, and assorted other species. Still learning. I seem to be turning into a twitcher… a bird-watcher! Not going to do the list thing though. A good pair of binoculars would be an asset on these walks… there are miles of walking or bike-riding trails, plus a 5-mile canoe trail. The preserve has a boat-ramp for canoes and kayaks. I’m not sure if motorized boats are allowed, although I saw an air boat roaring through the distant marsh at one point. They do make a racket.
I was very excited to have an area where I can get out and walk so close to where I live, without having to venture out into the more heavily traveled areas. I will also visit some of the fishing piers and state parks which involve more driving.
And, last but certainly not least, I saw turtles and five gators today. The turtles were gently tooling around the canals and ponds, while the gators were all sunning at the edge of the water. Lots to see!
Here’s some more photos:
Well, hope y’all enjoyed that brief tour of the wildlife preserve. I’m glad to be settled down and in one place and being able to write these reports.
BTW, a Southern accent is a rare commodity in these parts. You’re more likely to hear a New York or Jersey accent!
Enjoy your weekend and take a deep breath… the U.S. of A and its real rulers are up to their old shenanigans, again with the missile attack on Syria. Really stupid move there.

I was actually planning to publish a completely different post. But we have breaking news that can’t wait: US attack against Syria. Yep, hate to say I told you so since October 2016, or BEFORE US Elections, and then continued reiterating after. Should have listened to me… CONFESSION: Granted, most of my followers and so many […]
I do want to point out some of the astrology behind the timing of the attack itself. The attack started at 8:40 PM EST. The Moon had just gone void of course about 25 minutes previous. The Moon was also at 28 degrees Leo, the exact degree of the so-called “Great American Eclipse”, a New Moon Total Solar Eclipse which will make a path across the United States. This eclipse will be a North Node eclipse; while I liken the North Node in a person’s chart to their personal manifesto, in any chart the North Node shows a fulfillment of destiny and an…

the upcoming week, on April 10th or 11th depending on where we are in this world, we will be passing thru the airy influence field of this years Libra Full Moon; which is energetically still deeply connected to the intensively fiery Aries New Moon from the end of March. What that means for all of us, is that until even the middle of this month, we will still feel the drive of the inner fire creating brand new directions for us. The fires of transformation can take us to undiscovered inner dimensions, and the flame of the threefold union of God and Goddess Meru – which guides the twin flame desires in us – can now be healed and brought into union; as a close positioning of Venus to Chiron the wounded healer, is playing a mayor role in this Full Moon field.

At the vibrational level, love and compassion will not require you to mould yourself to fit into another´s expectation of reality.
Now, normally I wouldn´t be that worried about a Sun-Jupiter opposition. But given recent geopolitical events, it pays to pay attention. Jupiter Retrograde in Libra rules matters to do with diplomacy, rule of law, discourse, notions of Justice – and of course – relationships! The Sun in Aries is more about that utterly self-referential, instinctive, drive to act – without much thought as to the consequences of one´s actions. Think of the Maverick, Leader, Bully, Pioneer, Autocrat – these archetypes carry the Aries signature.
Now, politically speaking – most if not all of you will know to what/whom I am referring – so keep your eyes to the news headlines (if you do follow them) as major declarations can be made.
At the individual level, the challenge becomes that of managing the need to express and assert the self in relationship to other people. And that is a tricky balance…
