About Alana

"I am already given to the power that rules my fate. And I cling to nothing, so I will have nothing to defend. I have no thoughts, so I will see. I fear nothing, so I will remember myself. Detached and at ease, I will dart past the eagle to be free." ~Don Juan, "The Eagle's Gift"

“Commitment is making a choice to move ahead with a plan of action or intention without giving yourself a back door. Commitment is getting off the fence about something and making a decision that you then stick to. Commitment is finally taking that step of no return towards something you have only been dreaming of. Commitment requires eliminating the safety net of “I’ll do it if,” or “I’ll do it when,” and moving through the fear that holds you in the state of ambivalence, confusion and feeling stuck.

There is a saying, “action cures fear” and this is certainly true as a way to move forward and take advantage of the dynamic energy that comes available this month…

Commitment opens the channel to support. The universe will deliver on commitment as it is always a sign that you are willing to eliminate the back (and side) doors on your choices. How you ask is also important. It should never be a question but always a statement delivered with certainty. The mental thought process of weighing pros and cons should always be secondary to the intuition of the heart. If you are overthinking a choice, stop and go back to what you “feel” about it. Does it feel right or not?

Commitments made from the feeling of being the right choice are usually the ones that end up being the right choice. Commitments and choices made from the place of fear, other people’s judgments or reactions, and overthinking (which almost always engages the ego), are often fraught with issues that keep the uncertainty and confusion going. The universe will always deliver on a clear commitment with no ambivalence, back doors, negative “what if” considerations and compromises…

The most important relationship this month is your relationship to yourself. What is your commitment? To your health? To your growth? To being in relationship with others in a way that serves you? To living well? To always doing your best? It is a great time to evaluate where you are in any relationship and to make some commitments that make sense…

If you are staying in any situation that disempowers you, and you have the words “when” and “if” when you contemplate a change, those are “back door” words and not considered by the universe to show true intention. Take a risk. You will be rewarded.”

New Moon in Virgo – 8.30.19


“This new moon supports focus, details, action, reorganizing, resetting and new intentions. We are moving into a time of more clarity and desire for action and manifestation. The energy will move if you put commitment behind your intentions. Take some time and revisit what you truly want out of life, reset your intentions if needed, and make some commitments to how you will proceed. You will be greatly supported provided you are not stuck in ambivalence, confusion or extreme caution that will hold you back from moving forward. This New Moon initiates a cycle of “all systems go.” Resistance to it may show up as exhaustion, apathy and withdrawal.

If you find yourself down in the dumps during this potentially invigorating time, do something physical to get the energy moving. This is not a time for mental overthinking, worry or anxiety. Instead it is a time to open up to your intuition and allow for support to come in whatever form it shows up. Instead of overthinking something, just do it.”


“We continue to dump all kinds of old ghosts and elements of pride that would hinder our hearts from its authentic self-expression, and are getting clear about our priorities and what we should and should not expect of ourselves and others…

This is the time to separate the less important from the more important as we continue to bury the past and prepare for a new way of using power in the future…

We have awakened to a new life, and have moved through a time of letting go while finding allies with whom we can do good ‘bridge building’ work which will help us ‘cross the chasm’ where we will find ‘a new quality of being rendering the old patterns obsolete.’

If some things have fallen apart, it’s only for the best.

As we externalize our recent self-discoveries in forms of practical discipleship, we will find greater happiness and a natural personality integration which could lead to experiences of Love, Joy, and Bliss.”

Full Moon in Aquarius – 8.15.19


Aquarius Moon in its fullness is a cry for freedom. Not the kind of freedom to do anything we want, but the freedom to be just who we are without judgment and restrictions, to express our unique non-conforming selves.

More than that, we need to be free of our old belief systems so we can live in the free zone of ‘not knowing.’  In that paradox zone, where we are open, but have no idea how, when or where life will unfold, is freedomThis requires a great deal of faith in quantum creativity, and is required for the shifts in consciousness we are called on to make at this time…

The Leo cycle is here to remind us to love large and have the courage to live from the heart.  Create and be generous with your inner light.”
