This will be a very interesting time for all,emotions will run high but Mercury will be direct and many words that are said and exchanged will bring secrets to the surface and much truth will be revealed at this time.I will write more about this in the next few days.
The next Full Moon in Virgo will bring out the rest of what needs to be completed in our lives left over from The Solar Eclipse in February . It’s not quite a month yet,and as it gets closer more will be revealed and brought out into the open in detail, to what we need to know after this next full moon on March 12. We; now move into a time where we meet up with old friends and examine old notions and conditions that may need “Tweaking”,as we move into our Venus retrograde on March 9 into April 15.For many creative people this can be a time to go over those old and unfinished songs and stories,poems,sketches,and paintings that need to be finished. Is there an old friend that you need to reach out to? Perhaps you need to reevaluate that relationship,or maybe just revamp your wardrobe. This is not a time to try anything too drastic as many times, this influence passes we find that we really did not like the change,or it could be that it was too extreme and no longer suits us. Saturn is moving along in those later degrees of Sagittarius,and really making us look at our lives as it trines and makes connections to Venus retrograde and Mars in opposition to Jupiter in Libra. There so much going on ,all these planets in Pisces making us all so super sensitive and psychic as well.Neptune making its connection to all these planets and sun conjunction to Pisces makes for all this strong intuition and unconscious and subconscious psychic energy as well. We may not realize how strong our perceptions are under this influence,and how in touch with our feelings we are. On many levels we are in a time right now that will complete and finish what needs to be done,we are getting closer to the finish line on projects that have taken a long time to finalize.The connection to Uranus(which rules electricity and lightning)brings change that comes “out of the blue” and a change that is much needed.The wheel of Karma keeps turning and moving forward and as it does it brings what we need and what will benefit us, more than we know at this time.The final “Wrap up” will come in August when we experience another Eclipse and we will meet the years end, with much more energy than we have had in a long time. Jupiter will leave its tour of Libra in October and go gracefully into Scorpio and before we know it we will be preparing for Saturn to leave Sagittarius and go into Capricorn where,it will stay for the next two and a half years after this and of 2017. This is a time of great change that will happen so quickly,it will be hard to believe its finally all happening,after being on slo mo for so long ! MLC
At this time I sit here in Brooklyn New York freezing my toes off and dreaming about my days on the Big Island of Hawaii and Muai (although I love ALL the islands) and the work that Tim Beckley and I did researching for our work on the book “Kahuna Power”.This was back in the late eighties and the book was recently expanded and republished by “Global Communications” and has been featured in the famed “Bishop Museum” in Hawaii. This book was written by Timothy Beckley with additional information (in the way of Psychic Premonitions and additional writing and photographs by myself and Timothy Beckley).Brad Steiger;noted speaker and writer has written many books on this subject as well and has attended and been featured at many conferences as well as myself on many paranormal subjects.There is very little known about The Hawaiian Religion here on the mainland in The United States and perhaps that is partially due to the confusion of Myths and Actual Ancient Ritual Practices. There is a Female energy as well as a Male energy and a way of remembering this is to think of The Yin and The Yang.Thereis also a higher Energy of Magic and a Lower Energy of Magic and it can be compared to what we refer to in the Spiritual World as,Light and Dark Magic.The word “Kahuna” is “The Keeper Of The Secrets” and a person who is a Teacher of this is a “Kahulia” (although there are other names associated as well;such as ,”Kupua” and “Kahuna-Ana ana”(these are referred to as a type of High Priestess or Priest that perform Magic and are Teachers of Enlightenment.The use of what we now know as Psychology,and Dream Interpretation was first used by The Ancient Hawaiians way before Doctor Freud came along as did many forms of Meditation and Divination very similar to The Norse and Vikings with reading of Stones (Runes) and Shells. There is also a connection to Spirit that is very strong and akin to The American Indian with the respect of All living things and of the Earth and a divine respect for the Ocean. The Kahuna practices always remind us of “Balance” same as The Tarot and to always give back to the earth what we take from it.In this time in our history of our Modern World we must be mindful of and be respectful of Our Earth and its Climate Changes,also to learn from our past mistakes to help us with our journey to the future.

Get ready for one of my favorite Holidays Samhain ,coming very soon. Many people observe this Holiday on October31 ,and of course All Saints Day is the next day.Samhain is a Gaelic festival marking the end of the harvest season but many combine it with The Day Of The Dead or All Saint’s Day (Which is traditionally celebrated on November1st). I always remember this since my brother Frank’s birthday and my new Father In Law are born on that day. In this time; or through this time, “The Viel ” is very thin . Our ancestors are very near and listening keenly to our wishes,our hopes and dreams,and our deepest worries and woes. We are heard more clearly than usual and our ancestors answer us more clearly.Im not saying that we don’t always have a connection if we meditate or pray, but there is something about this time between middle of October through to November that for me personally is a main connection to communicate with the dead.There is also a strong connection with the communication from the dead to us. They are listening always but they are more verbal and more “Alive” and more Visual than ever before in this time.There are many rituals that can be done to communicate with our dear loved ones and our spirit guides,it all depends on the time you want to spend and your level of concentration.I usually have a nice glass of Wine or Mead and light a candle and bring photos of the people I wish to communicate with,and also a bowl of cold water and a clear crystal quartz for visualization. I carve Pumpkins and put little tea lights in them and I am a child again. The more you are in touch with your childhood innocence the more the ancestors answer you.
There are many rituals this is just a simple practice that I offer to you,I will post more about Samhain as the time gets closer. Blessed Be, Maria Lee Carta (Scruchina)
We are coming into a time of change as we start to enjoy,these cooler and more pleasant days ahead in September.Its the “Turning Of The Wheel” getting close to ” Mabon”,and one of the prettiest seasons in New York.In this month of September we of course are now in a Nine Month which “Nine” has the power of all the numbers in the “Numerological Alphabet” and it is a time of completion .It is also a time to reevaluate since we come into a “Mercury Retrograde ” in this month as well. No biggie since we know better than to start anything new but it is a time to finish up and re-evaluate our homework. We also face an interesting Solar Eclipse on September 1 in early degrees of Virgo and a Lunar Eclipse in Pisces on the the 16 of September. This Lunar Eclipse will be in the very sensitive,creative and psychic of signs; Pisces (later degrees). In each sign there are 29 actually 30 degrees if you count 0,it measures the time from the beginning of the month until the end of the month as to when exactly you enter each part of the sign. The time of your birth or the Ascendent is the most important part of a persons chart since it measures exactly where the Sun was at that time to record your particular chart. The place or town also, as equally important,this is what we are born with and it is called The Natal Chart. As time goes on and we get older;especially after the age of 8 years old the current transits really become more important to us. These are “Progressed Planets” and Transits and that it what goes on on a daily basis ,through the weeks and months ahead. These are “Transits”. In this month of September we will all do allot of reevaluating and changing our minds about things,but at the end or near the 22 of September we will”Wrap things up” and learn a few lessons. On September 30 we have a bright New Moon in the sign Libra and the Sun will be in Libra as well. Its a great time to try on beautiful New Fall Clothes and look great go out and have a good time. Its a wonderful time for travel,long or short distance and a time to love. Venus energy is very strong and Jupiter will now be in its tour of Libra for One whole year and it is a time of New Beginnings as we go into October. October is a 10 month 1 Numerological One,it is the number of New Beginnings.There will be allot of Love being given and received and the energy is very romantic. This romantic energy becomes stronger and stronger as we near the 23 of October and come into the sign of Scorpio,it then ignites and becomes super sexual! We will all enjoy this time of the year no matter what sign we are and many will be thinking about nesting,coupling and even getting married. As we get closer to Halloween many questions are answered and mysteries are resolved. Enjoy !TheFall its a lovely time! In Love & Light,Blessed Be and Merry Meet Again,MLC
We are just a few days away from a “Quirky” Partial Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.Of course there are other things going on which heat it up a bit,,and of course,Mars being in Sagittarius and in the same sign with Saturn (Which is now direct) can make us all very impatient t;no matter what sign we are.Uranus (which rules Aquarius) is in Aires and Mars being in Sagittarius is a bit fiery with the Sun still being in its fellow fire sign Leo. Lots of fire out there; with the sudden energy of Uranus in fiery Aires. Pluto being in Capricorn is making a square to remind us that “You Can’t Always Get What You Want But If You Try Sometimes You Get What You Need.” Thank you ; Glimmer twins! So lets all just mellow out and pick our battles wisely because we all know that there are always those Cosmic Idiot’s out there always ready to get under our skin! Pick your battles wisely as we are getting closer and closer to a Mercury retrograde (In the very picky sign Virgo) and it will square some of these planets in Sagittarius and still aggravate us but the Sun going into Virgo may cool us off a bit. We can use a little cooling off here in NYC since the temperate has been pretty high in the 90’s and 100’s and we are all “Hot Under The Collar”,and tired of it already! Lets talk about some cool stuff ok? We have a nice Solar Eclipse coming September1st in Virgo unfortunately Mercury goes retrograde on the 30 of August so we get some good stuff coming our way but it doesn’t last very long. We will get the full benefits of it after September22 (A High Master Number Day !) so we have all just unfortunately have to be patient with September and wait for the good luck coming our way by the end of the month. We also have Jupiter leaving its tour of Virgo and going in to Libra for one whole year. I am loving this since my Neptune and Saturn conjunction will love the creativity and psychic energy it brings me. We all have Libra some where in our charts and by knowing your Rising Sign or Ascendent (Time you were born ) you can tell very quickly.On the 16 of September we have a Lunar Eclipse in the sign Pisces. Its later degrees of Pisces so will be a little bit closer to the sign Aires (gives it some spice). This is a total Lunar Eclipse in the very psychic sign Pisces so it will be very hypnotic. This Full Lunar Eclipse will be visible in Asia ,Africa, Europe and parts of South America.Normally this Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse would bring the vibe of peace and love ,but with Mars and Saturn in the middle of it there is bound to be some destructive forces at home and abroad. Lets throw some positive light out there as mans urge to create should hopefully be stronger than his urge to destroy .After the 22 of September ;after Mercury goes direct,we have a nice energizing trine with Pluto that will get the brain power going once again.Transits are never all good and all bad but sometimes its just intense out there in The Universe and we have to be aware and prepared as to not be brought down by petty disturbances that get blown out of control . The end of September will put us right back on track and anything is possible with the transit into of Jupiter,now doing its tour of Lovely Libra .Thats all for now ,MLC ; Peace. Look out for my series of Video’s starting in August (I will surprise you ) Light & Love & Play some loud Rock N Roll!
