I am writing from the thick of Venus Retrograde, amplified by the New Moon last Friday. Venus retrograde phase also passes back and forth through a square to Saturn's last days in Scorpio. The energy of these planets are taking me into a deep healing. It's a mopping up phase of anything unfinished or put off in my Saturn return of the past two years. Venus retrograde takes it to a deep inner and emotional level. It's like the places where I get triggered with shame and fear are being scoured and polished, and the mirror held up so I...

Barbara Hanneloré is my guest on The Art of Sacred Pleasure on Tuesday, August 18. She'll be speaking on Women's Moon Cycles: a Nature-Based System of Self-Care. Sign up to join us at http://bitly.com/spweekly Reclaiming the Power of the Menstrual Cycle Guest blog by Barbara Hanneloré of womenswaymooncycles.com Women have a unique ability that has been so demeaned by modern culture that we have no idea how to approach it in a positive way. I’d love to share some thoughts on this aspect of our lives that does not get nearly the attention and respect it deserves. Our menstrual cycle... Continue reading

For the past week I have been finding clarity on my True Desires, a process I learned from Elizabeth Purvis. I encourage you to get to know Elizabeth's work, and listen to episode 2 of her 7-Figure Goddess radio show. Then give yourself a “True Desire Retreat”. It is good to revisit desires at least once a year, because knowing your True Desire is the first step in creation. True Desire is discouraged in Western culture. Instead our capacity for Desire is used to manipulate us into buying, working, striving, or enduring perpetual discontent with little hope of achieving what... Continue reading

For a woman to know her Soul and make life choices and create from her Soul, she must turn her attention to her pelvis. The Soul is not known through your head or your mind, or even your Spirit. Your Soul is embodied; you know your Soul's Truth in your bones, your belly, and in your pelvis, that bowl of bone that shelters your organs of regeneration and sex. This is true for women and men both. A consequence of growing up in a culture that cuts us off from our authentic sexual power is we are also cut off... Continue reading

I am not going to fake it. I don't know anything about Sex and Your Soul. That is your personal relationship and journey to discover. I do know that it is a necessary journey that each of us is taking, and most of us are unconscious of how our Soul and sexuality meet. What role does sex play in the Soul's Journey? or is the question really What role does the Soul play in our sex lives? Here are a few of the signposts I have seen on my own journey. Other people have written or told stories that included... Continue reading

Women who work with me often name a strong desire to enter a sacred union with a partner. It is no wonder, for women are designed to experience sex as multi-dimensional and spiritual. The sacredness of sex is in our biology, our neurology, and our energy field. It is natural for women and we tend to crave it, and long for sex to be about more than physical. We want our relationships to be blessed with this sacred ecstatic pleasure and intimacy. The Art of Sacred Pleasure is an exploration of our sacred, holy, erotic life, and for the next...

This tree holds a sacred space on my property. Three years ago it was the site of the Women's Web of Life dance. Last December I danced the Long Dance. I have supported private clients through vision quest under this tree. This past weekend it was my turn. I needed to shut off my life and listen to god. I needed to stop planning and striving and feel what Being is like. I slept a lot, indicating the level of fatigue. I made prayer ties and moved my body. I wrote in my journal a little bit. I asked questions... Continue reading

The Cancer Solstice said SHIFT, and the Capricorn Full Moon backed it up with a shove. I felt this Full Moon with an emotional intensity I have not felt in years. In the two days prior, I had two projects I've been working on get turned off, flat. I also had personal news about an illness in the family that upset me for awhile. I responded to all of it by being angry, frustrated, unable to sleep, and to be honest, beating myself up for my failure to control everything. Ha! When I wrote on Solstice about SHIFT, I compared...

Wow! In my Solstice letter, I shared how Solstice is Nature's reminder that it is time to SHIFT! Looks like national policy in the US felt the shift, and now the right to marry is recognized nationally, thanks to the Supreme Court decision on Friday. Congratulations to all my friends who can feel more confident that their desire and decision to marry will be recognized and honored where ever they live in this country. Continue reading

Do you have signs of Nature Deficiency Syndrome? For years as a city dweller, I did. I moved to Maine from New York City 22 years ago in answer to something that was calling my soul. I felt it as a hunger, a deficit, a pain in my body and spirit. All I knew then was that I was starving for nature, the night sky, the moon and stars, relationships that began in my farm childhood. These relationships had been cast aside when I ran away to New York, hungry for ideas, art, and sophistication. I remember my native New... Continue reading

Using your breath is the single most important erotic practice you can learn. But isn't breathing automatic? Yes it is, and breath responds to hormones that tell our brains how much oxygen we need, whether we are safe or in danger. The loudest hormones in the body are the stress hormones like cortisol. In this stress-filled modern world, we are constantly on alert. We breathe as if we are listening for the direction danger might lurk, or hiding from a predator. Our breath is shallow, high in the chest, or we hold our breath altogether. How can we have great... Continue reading

As we wind up another intense Mercury retrograde this week, I want to turn your attention to your heart. As Mercury has been rolling back and forth through Gemini, it has been making squares to Neptune, Chiron, and Nessus in Pisces. This has been a period of bringing up old stuff for examination, evaluation, and healing. Because Mercury in Gemini is powerfully mental in character, it has been a good time to bring thinking skills to painful or confusing parts of your life. (Eric Francis goes deep into this aspect in this Planet Waves article.) In Last week's newsletter and... Continue reading

Taurus New Moon sends a message to women to pay close attention to the power of feminine rage. I write this as the Sun and Moon conjunct for the Taurus New Moon. The New Moon is conjunct Algol and Sedna. . Algol is a star in the constellation Medusa, an ancient Greek female monster. The Ancient Hebrews called this star Lilith, the disowned first wife of Adam. Both Medusa and Lilith represent disowned and thwarted feminine sexuality and power. They are both famous for their epic destructive rage. Just remember who wrote the stories of these feminine archetypes, and cast... Continue reading

“We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.”― Anaïs Nin I’ve been pondering the wisdom of Sister Anaïs for a few weeks now. What does it mean that I see people, situations, circumstances as I am? Is it true that all of that out there is a mirror reflecting back to me what I am in HERE? Mentally I subscribe to the idea that I create my own reality, in physical form as well as in a perceptual emotional way. What is sinking into my body and being these moons is that I can create...

I think about sex all the time. It is my business to think about sex, talk about sex, research sex, and teach about sex. Sometimes the research gets personal, as with the 30 Day Sacred Spot Massage Practice. My personal life often blends with my professional life in that way. It's not a bad gig! How much do you think about sex? Sex is all over the culture, including how to have better sex, and people's bad behavior around sex, and so many opinions about sex and politics, sex and gender, sex and freedom. A lot of the talk about... Continue reading

Sue, perhaps your work in the world was to transmute rage on a bigger scale. On a personal level, when it still comes up, you are well equipped!

Yes, Louise, we have a lot to learn about rage as women. Thanks for noticing that we run our rage through our wombs. The womb is also where we bring consciousness to rage, and process the transmutation.

This morning I took a walk in the foggy dew. I followed my nose to these delicate wild cherry blossoms. They have the sweet dark scent of cherry wood, and their whiteness carries the juicy redness of the wood and the fragrance. White flowers speak of purity and innocence, yet look at her center. The fragrant green pistil holds the mystery of the darkness, the infinitesimal seed and fruit. From the darkness comes food for the animals, and new cherry trees in generations to come. The proud stamens stand guard, offering their masculine energy and DNA, necessary greatness without which... Continue reading

Masturbation. How does the word make you feel? Does hearing or saying masturbate turn you on, or turn you off? What's buried that gets poked by the word “masturbate?” In the current edition of Live with Diva Carla, I talk about masturbation to focus attention on May as International Masturbation Month. Giving a month to masturbation seemed silly when I first heard about it. Tell the truth, I was embarrassed. I was harboring some residual shame about my own masturbation. The word masturbation triggered that shame. I don't like it. I feel a blush prickling on my cheeks when I... Continue reading

The Dark Side of Giving or Letting Love In "You have to give before you can receive." People have been offering this advice in business, relationships and even spirituality since forever. I've noticed a dark side to this advice. Some people can't stop giving and let love in. It's not just women; I've noticed this dark side in men as well. I am not talking about the extreme of people who get off on self-sacrifice and martyrdom, or use giving to manipulate others. That isn't giving at all. I am talking about normal, loving people who are out of balance... Continue reading

For my 60th birthday, I gave myself a photo shoot with Jade Beall, the world famous photographer of unphotoshopped beautiful bodies of mothers, babies, grandmothers (that's me), and couples. I got the photos about 3 weeks ago, and it is has been a meditation in self love to see myself through Jade's camera. After years of struggle around self-love, sexuality, worthiness, it feels amazing to recognize how far I have come. Jade is a healer with her vision and her camera, and like any other healer, she can only reveal the wholeness that is already present. When I look at... Continue reading
