1. SAT & SUN, AUGUST 21-22nd: SPIRITUAL FUSIONS Psychic & Holistic “Pop-Up” Expo (at WNC Ag Center)

Numerology with Michelle Payton


Spring: New Beginnings and Plantings,

Opening to the Possibilities

“When observing the cycles of the Earth, our physical and spiritual existence are keenly aware of the Earth shifts. We observe them by responding to the cycle as if we were a plant or animal. The theory is that our bodies are seventy to ninety percent water. What happens to water when seasons shift?

“Our physical bodies, even if we don’t recognize it, are going through similar transitions. If ignored, we get physically sick, have problems achieving goals, and more.”

“Spring is the Earth’s New Year and our bodies and experiences will have a tendency to match that of nature. Spring comes in gently, gradually and requires patience as we anticipate what is to come. How this cycle might affect you in-the-moment is as follows.


Cycle Theme: To renew.

Role: To prepare and gently set in motion.

Best at: New thoughts, ideas, growth and introductions.

Challenge(s): Being patient. Balancing the transitions of being docile to moderately active.


F – Strong time to develop new strategies, thinking and positioning.

I – Strong time to gently execute new ideas and learning from the reflective winter and prior cycles.

P – Strong time to awaken your physical body but not to shock it with too much activity (relative to the physical activity you currently experience).

So – Strong time to begin to re-introduce yourself to people you haven’t seen or talked to since the fall cycle.

Sp – Strong time to slowly open yourself up to new practices or re- introduce yourself to productive old ones.

Spring Observations: Ground hog and other animals begin to emerge, buds on trees and bushes, birds building nests, animals mating, baby animals emerging, indoor plants growing new sprigs, gardens/crops/fields are being prepared for planting and/or being planted, outdoor bugs are beginning to show themselves (in seasonal climates). What do you observe in your climate?

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 8th: ALIEN SCRIPTURES: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible with Rev. Michael J.S. Carter


with Rev. Michael J.S. Carter

Thursday, October 8th

7:00 – 9:00 pm

Join Reverend Michael J.S. Carter as he explores the possibilities that the Bible, Koran, and other religious texts contain clues to visitations from extraterrestrials.

Reverend Carter’s Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible is written from the point of view of a man or woman in biblical times, anything that came down from the sky would be considered a god, or at least sent by the gods. Now consider what the site of modern technology, such as a helicopter or rocket ship, would do to the mind of a 1st century man or woman. The explanation of this type of phenomenon would probably sound an awful lot like what we find in civilization’s most sacred books.

Whitely Strieber, author of Communion: A True Story considered Alien Scriptures: Extraterrestrials in the Holy Bible to be, “the best book ever written on the subject.

Rev. Carter’s books will be available for purchase that evening!

Space is Limited! Tickets will not be sold at the door!

To purchase tickets, please visit Eventbrite at

Michael Harner’s “Shamanic Divination”

by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

Participants in the workshop have the opportunity to engage in divination journeys for each other as well as for themselves and to gain experience in using various time-tested shamanic divination techniques. In the shamanic search to become persons of knowledge, they learn, as shamans have from time immemorial, how to converse with plant and animal spirits, how to learn about the use of quartz crystals, and how to seek and receive revelatory knowledge from visionary sources.

Prerequisite: the FSS Basic Workshop, The Way of the Shaman®, with an authorized FSS Faculty Member.

1. MICHAEL HARNER’S “Way of the Shaman” – Feb. 1 & 2

Michael Harner’s “Way of the Shaman”

The Basic Workshop in Core Shamanism

by the Foundation for Shamanic Studies

February 1 – 2, 2020

(9:30 am to 5:30 pm each day)


Led by Marcia and Jack Hebrank. In this experiential workshop, participants are introduced to Core Shamanism, the universal and near-universal basic methods used by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality for problem solving and healing.  Particular emphasis is on the classic shamanic journey.  The shamanic journey is one of the most remarkable visionary methods used by humankind to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream.

Participants are initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by drumming and other techniques for experiencing the shamanic state of consciousness and for awakening dormant spiritual abilities, including connections with Nature.  Practice includes sharing by participants of their discoveries in shamanic journeys as well as being introduced to shamanic divination and healing.  Participants are also provided with methods for journeying so they can meet and study with their own individual spirit helpers in non-ordinary reality, a classic step in shamanic practice.

Participants learn how the journey is utilized to restore spiritual power and health, and how shamanism can be applied in contemporary daily life to heal oneself, others, and the Planet.  This Basic Workshop is presented by the Foundation For Shamanic Studies faculty members, Marcia and Jack Hebrank.  Completion of the workshop qualifies participants to take the advanced FSS workshops and courses.

Prerequisite: None

Previous Months Forecast

HAT’S UP – May 2022 by Belinda C. Dunn

Mercury Retrograde – May 10 @ 7:47 am
SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse – May 16 @ 12:14 am
Gemini New Moon – May 30 @ 7:30 am
NOTE: All times are given for Eastern daylight time – EDT

Marking the sacred passage of time, the first day of May is halfway between Spring Equinox and Summer Solstice. Known as Beltane in ancient Celtic lore, and celebrated to this day, May 1st honors the beginning of planting season, and the promise of a fertile harvest to come.

Our Sun transits through Taurus now, and we begin the month within 24 hours of an outstanding Solar Eclipse, exact on April 30. Any eclipse is a reset; stirring up the status qua, peeling away layers of distraction and denial, revealing what has been unacknowledged up to this point. As if this isn’t enough to shine a new light on old stories, this Solar Eclipse activates Uranus, often manifesting in sudden, erratic and inexplicable ways. Especially take note of May 5th as the Sun exactly conjoins Uranus.

Blended together the symbols are poignant and potent. The key phrase for Taurus is, “I have.” This is the zodiac sign of ownership, taking many forms, but especially money and possessions. Living in a society that places so much value on “things,” this month may present a crisis of resources. A widening gulf between opulence and destitution continues to deepen, like a chasm threatening to consume all in its path. Leaders, financial institutions and nations may be scrambling to preserve power, status and relevance in a “dog eat dog,” world.

On the personal level, this is a month to take stock, review investments of time and resources (especially waste and/or energy drains), make adjustments, and cultivate security, comfort and serenity in daily life. As part of an 18.6 year eclipse cycle, this eclipse aligns with the transiting North Lunar Node in Taurus. Similar to having the wind at one’s back, the way is clear despite turbulence and pulls to the past. What needs to be removed stands out in stark relief. It is just a matter of staying the course when possible, taking care of business as appropriate, identifying direction, and stepping across the threshold into upgraded systems of commerce, productivity, and even financial freedom.

This may be easier said than done, but in astrology it is said, “The planets incline, they do not compel.” This is a month to be aware of desires, obsessions and compulsions that may arise within yourself, another person or circumstances. Why? The Taurus Solar Eclipse is followed by a SuperMoon Lunar Eclipse on May 16th. Therefore, there are no easy, clear cut solutions for a vast majority of the problems in front of humanity. Between a rock and a hard place, no amount of pushing and pulling, manipulating and controlling, lying and distorting can alter the trajectory of events that have already been set in motion.

Culminating mid-month, this isn’t just any Full Moon, it’s a SuperMoon, occurring when the Moon is perigee (closest approach to the Earth). Intensifying the emotional and reactive qualities of Moon, tensions have been building for months. Like a pot simmering on the stove reaches its boiling point, May is a decisive month with long term ramifications. It may be messy at first, and take some weeks to simmer down, but a variety of circumstances will be different, and permanently altered from here on out.

The astrology chart for this lunar eclipse shows the Moon in Scorpio conjoining the South Lunar Node in Scorpio, all in square to Saturn in Aquarius. Known as a T-square, this configuration presents a series of hurdles like an obstacle course. For those invested in power, there is an overlying perception that it is possible to force one’s will upon others, but power grabs meet with resistance, especially with Saturn in humanitarian Aquarius.

The juxtaposition between Taurus and Scorpio is that of life and death. This lunar eclipse brings destruction of life and property into perspective. Cycling through the seasons, the tree of life buds and blooms, offering sustenance and shady protection, only to go dormant for a season. Accepted as normal and natural, there is great beauty in the process, but when life is willfully disrupted and destroyed, it is no longer beautiful.

One more note on the current transit of North Node in Taurus, and South Lunar Node in Scorpio (January 2022 – July 2023). Eclipses, both solar and lunar, manifest on a precise alignment of lunar nodes, Earth, Moon and sun. These current eclipses are a mirror image of eclipses next autumn (Solar Eclipse/October 25 and Lunar Eclipse/November 8).

Throughout 2022, evolutionary themes revolve around innovation of upgraded systems of commerce, monetary exchange, ecology and sustainability. All this takes place against a backdrop of inefficiency, lawlessness, criminality, destruction and abuse of power. Since Uranus is transiting through Taurus (2018-2025), those individuals/systems/corporations/governments stuck in the past, may find themselves caught in the undertow of disruptive turmoil. Uranus suggest the vital important of getting on the innovation train or being left in the dust.

This is especially the case as Jupiter enters Aries on May 10th. Signaling a whole new cycle of growth, Jupiter in Aries can fire up all sorts of projects and opportunities. Additionally, Mars enters Aries on May 24, conjoining Jupiter on the 29th. Considering the passivity and lull in momentum over recent years due to a pandemic, this planetary conjunction gives a much needed boost of confidence.

Together Mars joining Jupiter can be impulsive, entitled, forceful and self absorbed. More than likely, there will be these types of actions, but for the majority of people, this is a much needed “shot in the arm.” No, not another vaccine, but a metaphorical injection of vitality, interest, energy and determination. There is no time like the present for courageous and bold action, heroic deeds for the good of all.

In addition to this powerfully intense eclipse season of revelations and disclosures, Mercury is going retrograde on May 10. Timing is everything. Mercury begins its retrograde phase in Gemini, but retrogrades back into Taurus, taking its time, drilling deep beneath the surface of ambivalence, cover ups and pat answers, personally and collectively. When Mercury goes direct on June 3, just about everything the eclipses stirred up can begin to resolve. Delays and complications that arose in late April are most likely addressed, but still require focused determination in staying the course.

However, keep in mind, as Mercury goes direct, it is in stressful aspect with Saturn. Similar to having one foot on the brake, and the other on the gas pedal, obstacles may delay forward momentum. Differences in approach and opinion may halt progress temporarily, and require extra effort to think through carefully, and articulate clearly. The common adage, “When one door closes, another door opens,” is a good reminder.

By May 20, Sun enters Gemini, the zodiac sign of communication, education, short journeys, neighbors and siblings. The next day, May 21st, the Sun conjoins Mercury retrograde, always an important day in any Mercury cycle. Watch for enhanced learning through the exchange of information, and connection with others. Of course, summer travel and vacation plans will come into play along with getting out and enjoying the great outdoors. The month wraps up with a Gemini New Moon on May 30, Memorial Day. Kicking off a summer of fun, Gemini is on the go, ready for adventure.

In conclusion, a full picture of current trends takes us back to the rare conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune, exact on April 12, and continuing to activate as Mars joins Neptune on May 17-18. It can be helpful to consider how this trend has been manifesting in your life as it is an opening for all that is to come. The overall energetic has been that of release and surrender, a deep letting go.

On the physical dimension, Jupiter’s conjunction with Neptune has manifested plenty of very difficult and challenging conditions. Many people have been experiencing health issues. Many others, in fact, whole groups of people, have been caught in a web of lies, devastation, loss and grief. These are not easy times.

Current planetary trends are complex and multifaceted. Therefore, when astrology points to the joining of Mars with Jupiter in Aries on May 29, signifying an invigorating upswing, it may seem far fetched from the trenches of a very dark hole.

Many people resist the word surrender, because it has been associated with weakness. The English dictionary defines surrender as, “the action of yielding, giving up power, control, or possession.” However, from the spiritual standpoint, this definition does not take into account the deeper meaning that has little to do with outer conquest and ego driven control.

It is a process. A very real experience that arises out of vulnerability, a place most of us resist. It is a learning and leaning into life, accepting life on its terms, and ultimately a state of acceptance. From this state of emptiness and receptivity, miracles can and do occur, but they cannot be forced, they can only be welcomed.
