" Inner Grace Meditation" is about divine grace. Divine grace is not something you look for or try to make happen. You have the intention to close your eyes and start to withdraw from your environment and let the laws of gravity gracefully take you to the bliss that is deep down inside of you. Deep rest, deeper than deep sleep, allows stress to leave you. The gift of divine grace or divine judgment is an automatic by product of letting go and NOT CONCENTRATING so much. Simplicity.


Create a space in the thought process via sound “Mantra” and the gift of grace melts tensions away so you’re ready for the world.


 And, when the world takes too much of you, you just go back to that quiet space between thoughts. The kind of space that is unbounded. Without any judgments. The space of divine grace that guides you in your life. A gift that you didn't consciously ask for, but it showed up in moments all on its own. Without trying and concentrating.”

See definition below for "Inner Grace Meditation" 

Happy New Year 2022. In numerology the number 2 gives grace and power. Feminine forces are manifested. Cooperative energies bring peace and balance. Of all the numbers, 2 strengthens intuition.

Jupiter just entered Pisces on December 28, 2021, so if you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Pisces, most of 2022 can bring abundance and opportunities to advertise and expand your business.

Now we have Jupiter and Neptune both in Pisces. Neptune can activate a creative and spiritual imagination in the subtle planes of existence. Jupiter can expand those dreams into reality.

Jupiter will be in Pisces till May 11, 2022, and then Jupiter becomes highly active on a physical way in Aries. If you have Pisces energies in your birth chart you can imagine what you can have till May and manifest it when Jupiter enters Aries.

Jupiter will station retrograde on July 28, 2022, at 8 degrees of Aries and re-enter Pisces on October 28th, 2022, till December 21, 2022, and its Aries turn to have Jupiter in the sign of the Ram for most of 2023.

The rhythm here for Pisces is paying attention to your dreams. Then, both Jupiter and Neptune come together for the month of April 2022, allowing the intuition of the fish communications with higher souls and energies that most signs would love to have.

Jupiter and Neptune have a direct connection with Pisces. Jupiter is the classical ruler while Neptune is the modern ruler. If you have been dedicated to spiritual practices such as daily meditation, the month of April will open the flood gates of good karma and waves of bliss will engulf you. It is powerful.

2022 starts off with a new Moon in Capricorn on January 2nd, 2022, at 12 degrees (1:34PM EST). Venus turned retrograde in Capricorn on December 19, 2021, and will not turn direct till January 29th, 2022.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Capricorn, you want to start new avenues of work in your life for 2022. Venus retrograde can slow down your ability to manifest money and buy those material things you want so much.

However, this new Moon chart shows very little stress in it. That’s a positive outlook for the cardinal signs Capricorn, Cancer, Aries, and Libra.

Venus also rules Libra and Taurus, so these signs start of the new year with more internal dialogue. Questions like, what do I really enjoy in life? What kind of people do I want to attract to me in 2022? How can I manage my financial life better? How can I please the ones I love most?

The Covid virus and all its strands is still active in 2022 but not as active as 2020/2021. The reason for this is the Saturn square Uranus aspect is not completely over until beginning 2023 and U.S.A chart has a Pluto return in the middle of February and repeating itself a couple of times in 2022.

However, the Pluto reaturn in U.S.A chart will start to take effect at the start of 2022.

February 19th is the first exact of 3 conjuntions in 2022.

We could see an increase of deaths from mid-January to mid-February from covid. 

God knows Pluto has been hiding behind the walls of manifestation only to reveal many secrets of the unknown. Anything hidden, private and secretive is influenced by the sneaky energy of Pluto. I will make Pluto the “Celebrity in the Spotlight” in February so I can give my readers a good idea which areas of life will be brought to the surface that have been hiding.

Mercury retrogrades in 2022 are in Capricorn, Gemini, and Libra.

Mercury turns retrograde on January 14th at 10 degrees in the sign of Aquarius. Aquarius moves into deep reflections about how they will plan 2022. Mercury will station direct on February 4th.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Aquarius, your genius can be discovered in you as Mercury moves inward refining your perception about your work, friends, and family.

Who are my loyal friends? Can I be closer in my personal relationships? How can I make my work more creative and work with others towards a common goal?

Remember, Saturn will remain in Aquarius in 2022 and Saturn is the classical ruler of Aquarius. This brings intense responsibilities to Aquarius. Timelines that need attentions at work and the building of humanitarian organizations as humanity knows it cannot survive anymore on islands of isolation by the end of 2022.

The full Moon is in Cancer on January 17th at 27 degrees of Cancer (6:48PM EST).

This full Moon chart has 2 T-squares in it with the fixed signs of Taurus, Leo, and Aquarius. These signs are having communication breakdowns in relationships and need to seek out friends and family members born under the sign of Scorpio for advice. Scorpio fills in the open end of this stubborn fixed energy.

This energy runs from the full Moon till next new Moon.

If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Cancer, you are feeling more emotional and are ready to move forward on your path as the full Moon is sextile to the North Node increasing opportunities for growth.

The big question, since the Moon opposes Pluto, is who is holding you back or trying to overpower you, so you don’t advance in life. Cancer tends to be weak when it comes to supporting their own goals and this is that time, from January 17 to the end of January, to not let others talk down at you or make fun of your sensitive nature. “I AM CONFIDENCE” in 2022 is the affirmation for those with Cancer energies.

The federal government may show a breaking point in the President Biden infrastructure deal and any senators from the Democratic Party who are holding up the bill may find themselves on an island that is about to sink.

As Mars enters Capricorn on January 25th, lots of heated energies are coming from our government and if you have Sun, Moon, rising or other planets in Capricorn, your about to explode with energies that have been held up inside you.

This is also in combination with Venus stationing direct on January 29th. The sign of Capricorn is well on its way to a much better month in February around Valentine’s Day with Venus and Mars moving forward in February both in Capricorn.

This new year starts off on a good foot, but we still have Uranus in its fall in Taurus and with the eclipses this year in Taurus and Scorpio, financial gains and losses will be huge topics.

Taurus is about gains, but Uranus wants an innovative approach to our financial system. Uranus will reach 15 degrees, the halfway point through a sign, in May and December of 2022. This is an indication that the world is tired of the same old way of investing and other forces in life are pushing humanity to reconsider options by the end of 2022

The struggles of humanity are created by the financial system we are in. Greed has taken over in many ways, but the karma connected to those who will take for themselves at the cost of humanity is about to blow up in their faces as Pluto returns to itself in the U.S.A chart.

The Pluto return in the U.S.A chart is in the second house of gains normally ruled by Taurus. Another indication that financial instability is a topic in 2022. Birth and Death is a part of the Pluto signature.

We saw how transiting Pluto conjunct the progressed South Node in U.S.A chart brought lots of death through Covid in January and February of 2021 and environmental destruction in the summer of 2021 as well as the increase of gun violence and suicides.

The Pluto return may be an awakening. A clearing of things that need our attentions to be disciplined. Things hidden from view. Such as drug trafficking, sex trafficking, Covid and all the strands that come with it, pornography, oil, dark spirits, abortion rights, government powers that want to take over humanity, kidnappings, rape, UFO activity in the ocean floor and murder.

Activating the ring of fire from volcano eruptions and earthquakes. Continued flooding’s, landslides and strong hurricane/Typhoons could continue.

Leaders of the free world who want to overpower and dominate other countries to their will are active this year. Nuclear power is affiliated with Pluto.

We do have Russia on the move to start a war with Ukraine and Taiwan on edge from China’s presence. Whatever secrets withheld from the W.H.O and its connections to China and Dr. Fauci will be revealed.

This will be one of the most interesting years as it brings to the surface all that we want to heal. Holistic healthcare will be getting much more attentions than ever by the end of Spring 2022 and could provide many answers to heal and avoid the dangers before they arise.

It is around the end of Spring 2022 that America is fed up with all the fear surrounding Covid variants and vaccinations needed, that alternative ways of being healthy are brought to light.

Andrew Lessman of ProCaps who is on HSN every other month is a notable example of education we don’t get from Dr. Fauci or the AMA. Vitamin D3 and air purifiers for pure indoor air are just 2 ways we can help protect us.

Meditation for stress reduction and strengthening the immune system is also not mentioned at all by the highly educated medical doctors who are handcuffed by the AMA, FDA and W.H.O. They have limited perceptions about how to heal the world from any disease let alone viruses. And who created this virus?

Wishing everyone and your families a wonderful 2022.
