Form School Feng Shui 🐲 Reading the Dragon

Reading the Dragon 🐉 in the mountain range from my view this morning, I realized the eye of the Dragon was a J for my name ❤️ …

and also the name of the neighboring town where I’m staying right now. It’s a joy to be surrounded by mountains since we have none in Florida.

Form Branch Classical Feng Shui

The Form Branch is the oldest branch of feng shui. Qing Wuzi in the Han dynasty describes it in the Book of the Tomb[47] and Guo Pu of the Jin dynasty follows up with a more complete description in The Book of Burial.[citation needed]

The Form branch was originally concerned with the location and orientation of tombs (Yin House feng shui), which was of great importance.[26] The branch then progressed to the consideration of homes and other buildings (Yang House feng shui). ****

The “form” in Form branch refers to the shape of the environment, such as mountains, rivers, plateaus, buildings, and general surroundings. It considers the five celestial animals (phoenix, green dragon, white tiger, black turtle, and the yellow snake), the yin-yang concept and the traditional five elements (Wu Xing: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water).[citation needed]

The Form branch analyzes the shape of the land and flow of the wind and water to find a place with ideal qi.[48] It also considers the time of important events such as the birth of the resident and the building of the structure.-Wikipedia

Room by Room Tour 🎋🧧Feng Shui by Jacqueline Albert Pepper


Bedrooms are for rest and re-energizing your Chi after a long day so these rooms are best suited to be as Yin and quiet as possible. If a TV has to be in the bedroom use an Armoire with closed doors to hide it or other creative ideas for making it not predominate in the room or the first thing you see.

For the main bedroom, this is the place where relationships flourish so keep the romance and the balance happening here the most. Make sure that both sides of the bed have matching/balanced nightstands and lamps, a balanced amount of pillows or personal items on each side when possible. This creates a balance between you and your mate and keeps the communication flowing to nurture the relationship.

If there is any work out equipment or home offices in your bedroom, get them out of the master when possible or create a hidden area for them behind Sochi Screens or a creative way to obscure from view. …

What Is Freedom From Anxiety 🌻

The results of anxiety are felt in our inner worlds. In order to be free from anxiety in our inner life we must think in nonanxious ways. Perhaps the greatest place we can arrive at as human beings is what I call effortless perfection or inner serenity.

The Japanese culture calls this experience of total inner peace Shibumi. It is difficult to write about this state of serenity because it is a unique experience for every individual. The essence of achieving this kind of inner perfection lies in a view of the world as a perfect place. It means thinking in terms of harmony, peace, love, and perfection, rather than looking at the world as a hostile, ugly, hateful place. Innerperfection involves making peace with oneself, vowing to avoid fighting life, and instead joining with the natural forces of our universe and enjoying each moment as a miracle.
-What Do You Really Want for Your Children? Wayne W. Dyer

Shibui (渋い) (adjective), shibumi (渋み) (noun), or shibusa (渋さ) (noun)are Japanese words which refer to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty. Like other Japanese aesthetic terms, such as iki and wabi-sabi, shibui can apply to a wide variety of subjects, not just art or fashion.From: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shibui

Right now I choose to be in the moment. 🙏🏼❤️

Card pull for the week’s energy… What does it say to you given your life events right now? It says a lot to me about a current situation I’m navigating & I feel great about this energy read.

十六 - 16. THE TOWER 

Core Aspect: Karmic forces are now clearing the way. What results could be considered fortunate or catastrophic, depending on the circumstances. The impact denotes the abrupt end of a situation. It’s as though the karmic obligation-good, bad, or indifferent-has traveled through a conduit of past experiences, and on impact, created the final severance of this karmic tie. 🙏🏼❤️

四 - 4. Red Phoenix 

Reverse core aspect: Your persistence will be rewarded. Plenty of activity behind the scene. Your path of life is now changing.

White Tiger Page:

Core Aspect: You do not have the whole story! Situation is not clear. A minor change can frustrate you. Can be to your advantage when you realize that it was not the right time anyway.

Remember my cards are your cards …we are one.

Peace & Harmony, Jacqueline Albert Pepper 🌶



🌈❤️SWALLOWING THE RAINBOWS: For hope & protection… Imagery Exercise while seated in a chair position, feet flat on floor. Close your eyes and breathe out slowly three times.
Imagine you (or a loved one) are swallowing a rainbow. Feel the colors permeating your entire body. Breathe out and open your eyes.

👑 CROWN OF LIGHT: For healing Close your eyes and breathe out three times slowly.
See a crown of light on your (or loved ones or others who may be sick) head
See the light spreading downwards filling the lungs with light destroying any virus. See this light radiate through the body giving strength and vitality.
Breathe out and open your eyes.

☂️ BLUE SKY UMBRELLA: For protection and healing…
Close your eyes and breathe out slowly three times.
Imagine that you (and your loved ones, community, or globe), are covered by a huge blue sky umbrella that protects you from all evil.

“I fear for my Afghan Sisters.” “We will have time to debate what went wrong in the war in Afghanistan, but in this critical moment we must listen to the voices of Afghan women and girls. They are asking for protection, for education, for the freedom and the future they were promised,” Yousafzai, 24, wrote.
“We cannot continue to fail them. We have no time to spare.”

Nobel Prize laureate Malala Yousafzai on Tuesday wrote “I fear for my Afghan sisters” in an op-ed published in The New York Times in the wake of the Taliban’s stunning takeover.

Yousafzai, long an advocate for girls’ education, survived a Pakistani Taliban assassination attempt when she was just 15 years old when the militants shot her in the head in rural northwest Pakistan.

Since then the Oxford graduate has become a global figure promoting education for girls.

The Taliban took effective control of Afghanistan on Sunday when president Ashraf Ghani fled and the insurgents walked into Kabul with no opposition.

The recent takeover has triggered fears of renewed oppression, in particular towards women and girls.-france24 .com

“She is me, we are them, they are us!” Bringing awareness or any small step towards the freedoms of these women and girls. The hologram to whole. Even a micro dose of uplifting thought or energy. 🙏🏼❤️

TGIFeng Shui Funnies 😆

TGIFeng Shui Funnies 😆 Fun Fact Friday the 13th, Did You Know? …

The Thirteen Club
In the late-19th century, a New Yorker named Captain William Fowler (1827-1897) sought to remove the enduring stigma surrounding the number 13—and particularly the unwritten rule about not having 13 guests at a dinner table—by founding an exclusive society called the Thirteen Club.

The group dined regularly on the 13th day of the month in room 13 of the Knickerbocker Cottage, a popular watering hole Fowler owned from 1863 to 1883. Before sitting down for a 13-course dinner, members would pass beneath a ladder and a banner reading “Morituri te Salutamus,” Latin for “Those of us who are about to die salute you.”- History.com

Don’t Take Anything Personally

The Second Agreement “Don’t Take Anything Personally”

Nothing others do is because of you. What others say and do is a projection of their own reality, their own dream. When you are immune to the opinions and actions of others, you won’t be the victim of needless suffering.

Your truth is personal to you. Your own opinions and point of view reflect your own agreements and are personal to you. It is no one’s truth but yours. -Don Miguel Ruiz The Four Agreements

To thine own self be true.

Happy Lammas August 1st

Happy Lammas or August Eve: August 1st 🌞🌈💜

Ancient people tended to treat the entire landscape as the body of Mother Earth and seem to have universally invented possessions and powwows-gatherings over her body to celebrate her fertility, and the awesome cycles of regenerative life they experienced within her being.
Some of the earlier structures in the British Isles are henges, or a great round circles shaped on the land, where people gathered together at annual fairs, to meet and marry, to share their produce and livestock, and to tell stories and exchange information and culture.

Today our county and state fairs are the remnant of these ancient practices and still operate as places where prize-winning produce and livestock are displayed and teenagers win prizes. It’s interesting that the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival – a gathering of thousands of women who come together to listen to music, take workshops, and share rituals of female spirituality together – has happened every August for more than 20 years.

Lammas time falls under the sign of Leo represented by the Sun 🌞 card; Playful child like Leo 🦁 (my Sun Sign) personality emerging through spontaneous, uninhibited, theatrical self-expression.
Share your creative endeavors for the year, to give expression to your poetry, songs, books, and births of various kinds. – excerpts from Making Ritual with MotherPeace Cards

Enjoy the rest of your magical weekend whatever your doing, have fun.
Peace & Harmony,
Jacqui Pepper 🌶

Feng Shui Tarot 🎋 Jacqueline Albert Pepper

Feng Shui Tarot card pull JUDGEMENT:

Judgment: Judgment can often bring an element of surprise and the realization that this strenuous chapter of your life has now closed. It can be difficult to comprehend that the roadblocks are now removed. A sense of freedom releases you from feeling continually obligated. You can take a fresh look at life and begin new ventures. It is an ideal time to see just how possible it is to step into your future.

Reserved Core Aspect: (card pulled upside down)
A feeling of unease and unrest will continue until you decide to do something about it. Rid yourself of the “poor me“ complex. Feeling sorry for yourself will only make the situation worse. If you are feeling low, unable to detach from old mistakes, now is the time to stop judging yourself and be prepared to establish a new beginning.

Here’s to Releasing the Judge inside our heads. Freedom to be.
Notice where you Judge and what burdens you can release from your mind, all ego.

Cheers, Jacqueline Pepper 🌶

What Is Your Spirit Animal?

Deer with me, I mean Bear with me 😍… if you’ve been following my social media, you know I’m posting a lot of deer lately but this happened!
Yesterday as I’m walking a friend outside, this deer comes right up to us, I hold my hand out and she touches it with her nose… it was the sweetest thing. ❤️

Somebody must be feeding these ladies…
You can’t blame them they’ve lost their homes from all the building out here in Sarasota country, and wildlife has no where to go? They can always find refuge on our property.

What is the meaning of the deer totem?
The meanings associated with the deer combine both soft, gentle qualities with strength and determination:

🎋Ability to move through life and obstacles with grace
🎋Being in touch with inner child, innocence
🎋Being sensitive and intuitive
🎋Vigilance, ability to change directions quickly
🎋Magical ability to regenerate, being in touch with life’s mysteries -spirit animal.info

Card pull energy for the week:

The high priestess, like the Moon, is watery and receptive, the changing female aspect symbolizing intuition, the night and the inner patience of one who waits for knowledge from within. Balanced between polarities, holistic, a symbol of “two-in-one,“ she represents the Egyptian Black Isis and Sophia, the Greek goddess of wisdom.-Motherpeace Round Tarot

We’re reminded of the Yin and Yang ☯️ two sides of the same coin if you will… can’t have one without the other – Tai Chi.
With the new Moon in watery cancer this Friday at 9:17 PM EDT, a great card this week to take time for yourself, both reflecting on the inside like the 1, Water, Birth Star number, 💧connected to the moon and Yin, reflective, energy to the Yang of the 9 Fire, birth star number which is connected to the sun and can be impulsive. 🔥 We are both embrace all facets of yourself.

If We Listen To The Innermost Voice of Spirit…

We know we have the power to heal ourselves. Self-healing begins with making our own decisions-about what we wear, what we do, who we are-and deciding that we will be true to ourselves. With the help of our spiritual guide, we can resist the Temptations to betray ourselves, for these Temptations are born of fear, the fear that we are not good enough to be our “own physicians.”

To give away our powers binds us and causes us to suffer. But we can go to others for help without losing our own strength.

Today and every day, I will pray for the wisdom to choose wise counselors and the strength to love and heal myself. – Daily Meditations For Women

🧧MotherPeace Monday Card pull for the week

🧧MotherPeace Monday Card Pull energy for the week during Mercury Retrograde & Solar Eclipse🎋

🧧Spiritual Card –
5 of swords:
The sting; a bummer; results of a negative pattern.

🧧Mental Card –
XV Devil:
When magical power becomes a temptation for personal gain; the devil has entered. The pitfalls of egomania are bondage to physical cravings, addictions, negative habit patterns, ego-tripping & forgetfulness of spirit.

🧧Emotions Card –
XIII Death:
Death is not an ending, but a transformation. Nothing in the universe is ever destroyed, things simply change form. Like the snake shedding its skin, fully conscious and aware of itself, a person leaving one state of being is simultaneously reborn into another.

🧧Physical Card –
Shaman of Discs:
on the edge; long range vision; strong sense of purpose and direction; magnificent leader

🧧Helper Card –
6 of Wands:
personal power; victory; becoming a leader; recognition

Take this time to go within and take inventory of those negative patterns when your ego takes over instead of your heart… ❤️
A wonderful time for transforming and reinventing yourself with a new way of being. Set the tone for the new healthy habits you would like to aim for and let this New Moon energy support you with an auspicious outcome.

Peace & Harmony for a rebirth this week.

How to watch next week’s rare “ring of fire” solar eclipse. Last month’s “super flower blood moon” lunar eclipse was hardly the only exciting celestial event of the season. Next week brings an even bigger spectacle — a rare “ring of fire” solar eclipse.
On June 10, skywatchers all over the world will be able to view the eclipse.

What is an annular solar eclipse?

A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes directly between the Earth and the sun, completely blocking the sun’s light. During an annular solar eclipse, the moon does not completely cover the sun as it passes, leaving a glowing ring of sunlight visible.
An annular eclipse can only occur under specific conditions, NASA says. The moon must be in its first lunar phase, and it must also be farther away from Earth in its elliptical orbit, appearing smaller in the sky than it usually would.
Because the moon appears smaller under these circumstances, it cannot fully block out the sun, forming what’s called a “ring of fire” or “ring of light.”
“As the pair rises higher in the sky, the silhouette of the Moon will gradually shift off the sun to the lower left, allowing more of the Sun to show until the eclipse ends,” NASA said.
The moon moves in front of the sun in a rare “ring of fire” solar eclipse.

How to watch the annular solar eclipse

Thursday morning, June 10, makes the new moon, which will eclipse the sun at 6:53 a.m. ET. To see it, look to the east.

The narrow path of the eclipse will be completely visible in parts of Canada, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean and Siberia. It will be partially visible for much of the rest of northeastern North America, Greenland, Northern Europe and northern Asia.
From the Washington, D.C. area, the moon will block about 80% of the left side of the sun as they rise together in the east-northeast at 5:42 a.m. The sun will appear as a crescent during this time, NASA says.
“From any one point along this annular solar eclipse path, the middle or annular or ‘ring of fire’ stage of the eclipse lasts a maximum of 3 minutes 51 seconds,” according to EarthSky.
The event will conclude around 6:29 a.m. ET.
It is essential to wear special solar eclipse glasses to protect your eyes while viewing the celestial phenomenon. Looking directly at the sun is dangerous and can damage your eyes.
This is just one of two solar eclipses in 2021.

A total solar eclipse will be visible on December 4.

Here Comes Mercury Retrograde …

Peace & Harmony – my personalized Chop

A friend always asks me when this time comes around… “What is mercury retrograde?“ I think this may help.

What Is “Mercury Retrograde”?

Three times a year, the planet Mercury appears to travel backward across the sky. We refer to these periods as times when Mercury is in apparent retrograde motion, or simply ”Mercury retrograde.” To those who practice astrology, these times in particular were traditionally associated with confusion, delay, and frustration. Think undelivered love letters, email blunders, and frazzled travel plans! This is an excellent time to reflect on the past, however, and it’s said that intuition is high during these periods. Coincidences can be extraordinary.

What Is Retrograde Motion?

The astronomical explanation for retrograde motion starts with understanding that the planets in our solar system orbit the Sun at different distances and speeds. While we orbit the Sun ourselves, we can observe the other planets moving across our sky, following their own paths. 

Sometimes, it can appear (from our perspective) that a planet has abruptly switched directions and has started to move in reverse across the sky. This is, of course, an illusion caused by the position of Earth in relation to that of the planet, since a planet in orbit always travels in one set direction and can’t suddenly reverse course. This is why we call the phenomenon apparent retrograde motion, as it only looks like the planet is moving backward (“retrograde motion”)!

What You Should Do When Mercury is Retrograde

The planet Mercury rules communication in all forms—listening, writing, reading, speaking, and so on—as well as activities closely related to communication, like negotiations and contracts. It also rules travel, automobiles, shipping, and mail.

So, when Mercury is retrograde, try to remain flexible, patient, and understanding, allow extra time for travel, and avoid signing onto any new contracts that you’re unsure of. Double check your email responses and check in with reservations before you take that trip. 

Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions. You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be prepared for people’s shorter fuses and miscommunication. 

Take a Moment to Reflect

Some blame Mercury retrograde for all chaos that happens in their lives. However, this is a good time to sit back and review what you put your energy toward.

For example, if family and faith are important to you, are you putting enough of your energy into them or have you become overextended in other areas such as your career or a hobby? Losing the balance between different parts of your life can cause all of them to suffer, so being aware of the connections between them—especially during Mercury retrograde—can help you to maintain or at least better understand how that balance works.

Take a moment to reflect. Mercury retrograde can be an excellent time to take a step back and reanalyze who you are and what you are doing—but do refrain from making any drastic changes until after retrograde has ended. – almanac.com

I Loved this explanation and it marries well with Feng Shui and finding your balance by taking inventory of yourself .

Happy Full “Wind” Moon in Scorpio🦂11:32PM EDT 🌝

Wind’s meaning works for both eastern and western astrology.
Wood Season is winding down and is associated with Wind for its surprising nature and the growth of Spring. Also connected to Liver, Green, East, SE, Sour, Anger, Eyes and more. Last call to sow your seeds these next 10 of Wind/Wood season in Chinese Medicine

“In April, about halfway through the month, the thunderstorms of March are beginning to subside, and the wind picks up. Seeds are being blown about on the breezes, spreading life all around from one place to the next. In fact, this lunar cycle is often known as the Seed Moon. Trees have buds on them, spring daffodils and tulips abound, and the birds are nesting once more. Much like March, this is a time of conception and fertility and new growth.
🎋Herbs like dandelion, milkweed, dogwood, fennel, and dill are associated with air, in part because their seed pods will blow away and spread on a breezy day.
🎋The element of air is strongly tied to this month, because of the winds that may pop up out of nowhere to surprise you.”

Carpe Diem ~ Seize the Day

If Not Now When

3 1/2 more weeks of Wood season and Happy New Moon in Aries at 10:31pm, EDT Sunday April 11th.

With the momentum of Wood season equaling Springing Forth, Growth, Ideas bubbling up. Clean out stuck, old energy to prepare for new Chi sprouting forward. Now is the time, don’t wait with Mercury Retrograde coming the end of May.

Along with, the New Moon in Aries tonight at 10:31pm EDT. “Signaling a fiery NEW start. An Aries New Moon brings forth something fresh and exciting especially in such a beautiful aspect to Jupiter.

The natural Ruler of Aries is Mars, and with Mars in trine to Jupiter during this New Moon, we can feel blessed by these two planets who are considered good friends

We may see swift movement forward in the areas we are wanting to expand our blessings – be it in love, money, business, health. Jupiter indicates our hopes and wishes, so use this energy to move forward on anything you’ve been wanting to manifest.

We may also feel inspired to take action around our belief systems as the planet Jupiter is connected to our spiritual beliefs. Perhaps now more than ever we feel strongly (Mars) the need to stand up for our beliefs (Jupiter). It’s a great time to consider our spiritual and personal beliefs and ask what we’re willing to fight for. Whether it be a relationship, a career decision, our health, boundaries or other personal beliefs and values.

The New Moon is an ideal time to set intentions around your big life vision and take clear actions on them. Even though we may feel the need to take action on our ideas or beliefs, it’s best to way until a couple days after a New Moon, when it’s visible again to take action. New Moon’s are really the best time to be introverted, to rest and rejuvenate”- excerpt from Risingwoman .com

Happy April “Fool’s” Day

0 Fool – The Main Card in Tarot 🌸 Like the feminine archetype, the Fool – the zero – embodies all duality within itself and is infinite in its possibilities. Appearing marginally as the joker in modern playing cards, the Fool is actually the main card in the tarot representing the essence of life itself, the divine light within the human form and the secret of reincarnation.

The Fool represents the entire realm of possibility, the pure impulse or open window of psychic experience, the precise formless moment of awakening before the energy has taken any shape. The feeling here is one of enormous freedom and spontaneity, as if anything might happen. It’s very childlike and open, completely free from fear, trusting the universe and moving with the flow of energy or power.
-MotherPeace Round Tarot

Intro to Feng Shui Workshop

Learn the basic theories of classical feng shui and how to apply them to your home and environment.

Jacqueline will be offering a 2-part series that will guide you through the fundamentals and basic principles of Feng Shui. Workshop will be held in May.



HAPPY Full Moon in Libra

At 2:48pm today. The moon is in Libra where it will stay until Tuesday at 1:33am when it enters Scorpio. My moon is in Scorpio.

Here’s what the Monkey, Rooster & Dog are like during the full moon:

Chinese Zodiac Monkey

The Monkey is affected by the full moon. During this lunar phase, this sign is filled with a burst of creativity. They love to express themselves whenever they can. They will want to prove their creativity to others, which is likely to make them even more social than they normally are. People born in the year of the Monkey, will act much like the monkeys in the wild. It’s up to you if that’s a good quality or not.

Chinese Zodiac Rooster

The rooster is also affected by the full moon. The Rooster tends to be quite, unlike the literal rooster. Their minds are busy on the inside, and they act wildly on the outside during the full moon. They are much more likely to dress to impress during this time. They will be inspired to do more things as well, but creative things. Those born in the year of the rooster could collect items, begin a new project, or even make a few new friends.

Chinese Zodiac Dog

The last for the full moon on this list is the dog. People who are born in the year of the Dog are highly in tune with their senses, and this sense is heightened when the full moon is out. They’ll instantly be able to tell if something or someone seems wrong or right, at the same time, they will jump on a positive influence. The Dog is also more likely to be in a good mood when the full moon is out.

Have fun this 🌝 full moon week. Peace & Harmony,

Be Your Own Authority
Imagery Exercise for Fear: Excerpt taken from “Healing Visualizations” -Dr. Jerry Epstein

💚 The major antagonist to faith or trust is fear. Fear always relates to something or someone external to ourselves, in contrast to anxiety which is generated from within. The human basic fears that of the dark. The two key offshoots of this fundamental fear relate to apprehension about the unknown and about death. The exaggeration of fear is called phobia.
💚 My clinical experience has shown me that fear is largely a consequence of some thought or action that we believe is not morally appropriate or correct. In truth, we create fear ourselves by our beliefs. Acknowledge where you may be contributing to your own fear, because to know this is to know that what you create you may “de-create.” You made it, so you can also unmake it. Don’t respond by thinking that I am making you feel guilty for putting such an onerous or burden on you. Know in becoming your own authority you have to assume authorship. You have to know how you create your own enslavement if you are going to create your own freedom. Doing this actually brings relief. I contrasted fear to faith above because it is not common to find people of trust be set by fear. 💚 King David, in the 23rd Psalm, beautifully expressed the antidote to fear when he said, “yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I shall fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me… my cup runneth over.”
💚 Here are some possibilities for gaining mastery over fear reactions. the exercises are quite brief. An axiom of successful imaging is that less is more. This is because imagery works by giving a jolt to our mental and physical systems to stimulate their innate healing functions.

💚 23rd Psalm: close you’re eyes. Breathe out 3 times starting with an exhalation to remove carcinogens and tune in. See yourself carrying your rod and staff. Use your staff to help you walk a straight road, and use your Rod to knock away any fearful image that intrudes on your path. Then see your cup overflowing. Open your eyes knowing that fear has gone.

Know as the Kundalini, which is pictured in yoga as a coiled snake resting at the base of the spine, waiting to be awakened through spiritual practices. However, this kundalini energy is spontaneously catalyzed every month during the bleeding time, creating a strong psychic experience for many women, even though we may not have known what to do with it!

Over the course of a woman’s life, there are many opportunities for such spontaneous awakenings of the kundalini energy, which is believed in India to belong naturally to women.

The kundalini itself is often depicted or discussed as being a great snake who is a goddess, and when awakened, “she” rises up your spine through your chakras or energy centers, bringing cosmic consciousness and supernatural powers called siddhis.

-Excerpt taken from making ritual with Motherpeace cards

You Do You


Full Moon 🌝 in Virgo ♍️ 3:17am EST – The Ash Moon’s Energies coincide wonderfully with the energy swirling about in February during the Wheel of the Year in the Northern Hemisphere. While it is still winter, the earth is starting to spring into action after months of dormancy, the first signs of spring are becoming visible as the days are growing noticeably longer, and the earliest of bulbs are rising above the snowy ground green with hope. So also, the Ash Moon, in the Celtic Month of the Ash Tree, brings us the reminder that we have planned long enough-it is time to move forward with action steps to make our plans and desires a reality! The energies of the Ash Moon invite you to expand your horizons as you grow tall, as the Ash Tree does, reaching your branches high towards the Moon. By many considered a guardian tree in folklore, channel it’s strength and confidently say, “By the light of the Ash Moon and with the strength of the guardian tree, with confidence and divine guidance, I welcome the action and energies of unfolding growth to me!“ – Blake Octavian Blair

Thangka Buddha It’s Feng Shui 😍
Whatever you’re doing have Fun!

In Memory of my Favorite Teacher, Friend and Advisor from his wife Rachel.

Today, Feb 18, marks Jerry’s 2ndanniversary since his passing on the English calendar. For Jerry, nothing was by chance, and his date of departing was on his favorite number 18 (chai) – the Hebrew word for LIFE. So today, rather than embracing sadness, let us celebrate his life and teachings.
Several Days ago, I found this unpublished snippet on the necessity of anxiety that Jerry wrote that contains his key teachings of how we can find freedom in life and death by facing “what is” rather than living in the grip of anxiety. READ MORE

To embrace life, Jerry taught “GO, DO”. He joyfully handed out these little cards, pictured above, as reminders of taking action in life. Jerry’s dear friend, Colin Greer, captures this in his Sonnet to Jerry.
He offers a green card. He wears a green shirt, Sometimes with matching pants. His smile is ear to ear As the tree behind him is floor to ceiling Like he is witnessing tikkun then and there. In a fleeting moment his smile lifts sideways a little When “of course” “I’m here”“I see the shadow you’re afraid of” Needs to be said. And it does. You take the green card, You recognize the shadow is yourself You know about wholeness now And you know what love is. From Love in the Abductive Or, I wish I Could Speak Yiddish Like Satchmo – A poetry collection in honor of Jerry due out on Louis Armstrong’s birthday July 4 2021 Blessings,Rachel Epstein

Happy Metal Ox Year 🎋

Happy Lunar New Year – Metal Ox

METAL – This year is another Metal year giving us the energy influences of structure, habit, order, being detail oriented, as well as sticking closely to your daily routines. This year Yin’s mood will help you lighten up a bit on these above traits as opposed to last year with Yang Metal’s strong tone. Imbalances that may come up in a Metal year if you have a lot of Metal in your natal chart are: skin, lungs, large intestine, emotional blockages or melancholy. Over all this year is less intense than last year.

OX – Second in line on the list of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animal signs (12 Earth Branches) that make up your Four Pillars natal chart. Hard working, stubborn, slow to action, stable, dependable, and usually calm, the Ox sticks to its routine. With dedication and tenacity, you can rely on the Ox to get it done with order and structure. They take their time to warm up to people but love spending time with their friends the Snake and the Rooster …Sheep steer clear of getting in Ox’s way this year.

For more on this year‘s prediction and how it relates to your chart…

Contact me for more or to schedule your complimentary discovery call.


Love & Light, Jacqueline Pepper



This is the Year of the Yin Metal Ox

Nine Star Astrology Number: 6

**Let’s take a look at this year by breaking it down into sections:

YIN – represents female, receptive energy, is about reflection, and being more open. This year, compared to last, you may find yourself more introspective since the Yin adds the feminine tone versus the masculine Yang.

METAL – This year is another Metal year giving us the energy influences of structure, habit, order, being detail oriented, as well as sticking closely to your daily routines. This year Yin’s mood will help you lighten up a bit on these above traits as opposed to last year with Yang Metal’s strong tone. Imbalances that may come up in a Metal year if you have a lot of Metal in your natal chart are: skin, lungs, large intestine, emotional blockages or melancholy. Over all this year is less intense than last year.

OX – Second in line on the list of the 12 Chinese Zodiac Animal signs (12 Earth Branches) that make up your Four Pillars natal chart. Hard working, stubborn, slow to action, stable, dependable, and usually calm, the Ox sticks to its routine. With dedication and tenacity, you can rely on the Ox to get it done with order and structure. They take their time to warm up to people but love spending time with their friends the Snake and the Rooster …Sheep steer clear of getting in Ox’s way this year.

6 Metal Yang Heaven/Father – Nine Star Astrology Number – This number gives us more of the Metal theme this year and enhances it because 6 is Yang. The Heaven/Father Gua (house) is somewhat of a perfectionist and works hard to achieve goals. So, with the Ox’s influence, this is a year to get things done. “Father” influence can be strict and demanding, so if you tend to be hard on yourself make sure you have down time this year, because those tendencies will be strong.

Overall, the Metal Ox year will be about attainment of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. If you are dependable, calm, methodical and stick to your routine you will come out ahead. Ox can be stubborn with strong opinions and doesn’t take kindly to criticism, even constructive. This is a year of being awarded positions of authority and trust if you play your cards right and follow your system.

A year for getting wrapped up with too much responsibilities, if you let Yourself …be ahead of the game in your thinking and get your “down time” scheduled first. This way you can stay as balanced as you can throughout the year. Ox is logical and systematical so much so it can become predictable, so don’t get in a rut. A potentially slower year for outcomes but if you stick to your aims you will get there as Ox always does. A year of potential clashes with those that don’t have your same opinions or agree with your views. Please be kind in knowing everyone is where they are and we honor the process. When we do that, we also honor the process in ourselves and become more self-loving and our love cup gets a bit more full.

Resolutions to problems this year will be intense, so express yourself as clear and concise as you can knowing that it can get blown out of proportion, especially during Mercury Retrogrades this year, we’re in one now and going direct on the 20th. Try not to force your issue or be too narrow minded this year as arrogance might get the better of you in your stance or position on things. Ox can be vengeful when it doesn’t get it’s way.

This is a great year for completing your projects from last year and getting things done in a quieter, more Yin manner.

The last time we saw Metal Ox combination was between the dates of: February 15th 1961 – February 4th 1962 – If you were born between those dates you may hold many of the characteristics discussed here.

Feng Shui New Year Tip: Eat a Noodle dish with long noodles to signify a long life, eat something sweet to make this year sweeter, and place a Red Envelope with a handful of rice in it in the far left corner as you are walking through your front door, which is the Money or Wealth corner. Place the envelope there with the intention of growing your wealth and abundance, whatever that means to you for this new year. You are reminded of it and tune into that energy whenever you walk by and see it.

Wishing everyone health and success in the New Year of Metal Ox!

Only two more weeks until Chinese New Year, yet, because it’s a Leap Year in the Chinese Calendar there are/were 13 new moons before February 12th this year, giving us 2 Wood Seasons under the Rat Year. February 3rd kicks off our final Wood Season of the Rat Year and for 3 months with the start of the new year coming, it’s a great time to sow your seeds and expand your mind. Wood season runs approximately February 4th to May 5th each year.

Wood is the element of sprouting, growth, planning, and expansion. It has generated being Strong and Flexible, from all the Water element of the winter season. It’s flexible, resilient and bends when needed, but if pushed too hard will snap, and the flip side of too much wood can be anger and control.

If you were born in this season you may have some of the following qualities: Wood is kind-hearted, generous, friendly and able to make decisions easily when in a balanced state. Imbalances in Wood that come through the body are in the forms of: Liver, Gallbladder, Muscles, Eyes, Tendons and Ligaments.

The flavor is sour. The colors are Green and Light Blues, the shape is Rectangle, the climate is Wind and it is Yang in nature. Wood is connected to the directions on the compass of East and South East.

Use this as a guide to look at those areas of your home associated with Wood energy, East and South East, and see what is happening in there in your home or office and make sure of the usual Feng Shui tidbits:

  • Try your best to have no clutter
  • Keep these areas well maintained
  • Put your intentions in this space of what you want to accomplish
  • Allow an opening for change and new energy

Stagnation and clutter in these areas of the home, East/South East, can cause confusion, indecision, and frustration, and in doing so, create anger. With the New Year coming and Wood Season upon us it’s a great time for “spring cleaning”. Out with the old, so new energy has room to come in. The idea is we want to invite the energy we want in our lives by keeping those areas open, welcoming, and supported by balancing the energy there following the steps mentioned above. The great thing about a New Year is we have 3 more Seasons/Elements to go, and each is connected to areas of your home via the compass directions so you can easily declutter in sections accordingly to keep it simple.

**Follow my blog to stay in touch with updates to the Seasons and much more!!**

Have a Wonderful Wood/Spring Season and a Happy and Balanced New Year.
