Today is my Birthday. #59. I am in my second Saturn Return. It is happening right now and I am in it!

The Saturn Return is a cycle that includes claiming authority, mastery, and knowledge. It is a time of soul searching and reflecting on what I want to do with this next cycle of my life.

At this crossroads, I want bigger conversations. I don’t want to waste time. So, if I am in a situation that no longer feels right, I have to bless it and move on. No regrets. Lots of appreciation for all of the people and experiences in the first 59 years. Now, clearing the decks to make room for the next 30 years. Until I reach the 3rd Saturn Return when I am in my 80’s. Another milestone.

One thing I want to clear up. Not wasting time doesn’t mean I want to be on the go all the time. Some of the most valuable, precious time is being on the planet in stillness and rest. There is action happening in the inaction.  This summer I spent a lot of time in stillness. Reading. Binge watching some tv shows and movies and examining relationships and character development. Walking. Resting. Taking inspired small action steps. All of that time I spent “doing nothing” this summer is beginning to show signs of readiness. The next steps are showing up. All of those seeds I have planted in the last 59 years are getting really shiny. I feel filled up and grounded with an understanding of where I am going for the next few months.

I have raised three daughters to adulthood. They are all living their lives in amazing ways. I have a 2 year old granddaughter. I want to keep making a contribution and impacting the world around me. I am sharing my voice and experience. This means I listen and I speak up. I write and I read. Once again I feel like I am just getting started.

It is an exciting time and I am ready!


Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 4.13.37 PMOn my birthday today I am spending the day with me.

Began by taking the train from Queens to Manhattan where I closed my eyes, connected to my heart and sent love to all of the people and set a love energy on the train at 6am!

Stopped at Starbucks for a Happy Birthday Latte to ME!

Received a Message from God in my inbox:

Today, Andrea, we believe God wants you to know that you have so much to offer to the world. There is no limit to the love you can share, to the happiness you can inspire, to the peace you can bring.

Arrived at OneTaste NYC OM Circle for connection with friends and my OM practice.

Stopped at Verizon Wireless to get my new replacement phone turned on and hooked up. (thank you insurance company)

Spent the day walking around New York City, writing at The Bean in the East Village and in a little bit I will return to OneTaste for a second OM circle and a community potluck.

Full, rich exploration of me being me!


In the back drop of my day is this song:

I’m a Grown Woman by Beyonce

Look at me, I’m a big girl now.

Said I’m gonna do something.

I’m a grown woman.

I can do whatever I want!


(It already feels like a yummy, delicious year.)
