There’s no place like home…

While we had a great time visiting with our LA kids and seeing friends and attending Suzanne Evans’ Be The Change Event, it’s always good to get home and pick up the routine.

Last week we were in Las Vegas for Be The Change during the exact times of the Cardinal Grand Cross, that transformative celestial event that has had a huge impact on me personally and on all of us at some level. And then, on April 28-29 there was the New Moon/Solar Eclipse. Have you felt things shifting in your life?

The astrological events describe energetic patterns that are around us as we move through our lives. You don’t have to become a student of astrology to sense the impact. Big rain storms hit the Chesapeake Bay area the day after this New Moon/Solar Eclipse and there has been flooding all around us. Landslides in Baltimore. Rivers and creeks at flood stage. Roads closed. And elsewhere there have been severe storms and tornadoes. These aren’t accidents.

Paying attention to the Moon activities makes sense for a lot of reasons, including the Moon’s influence on water, which is the main component of the human body. Makes sense that we, too, would be influenced, right? So notice your moods, your impulses, your dreams.

I spent a lot of my time during the Cardinal Grand Cross period examining how I want to step out in a bigger way in the world. One way is to reach out to larger groups of people and to help you and others connect to the solutions for the problems that keep you feeling stuck. Watch for more group activities being offered soon!

In the meantime, I continue to help individuals in private sessions and will keep the Spring Clearing session special open for a little while longer. If you’re looking for that solution or are just feeling stuck and want to know the NEXT STEP to take, then grab one of the remaining sessions and get yourself moving into your own ‘why’! Send me an email:

Enjoy May! The dogwoods are in bloom here in Maryland. It’s time for the Triple Crown. (I watched the Kentucky Derby this past Saturday!) There’s new growth all around us. Let your personal energy bloom and grow.will you?) There’s new growth all around us. Let your personal energy bloom and grow.

Be The Change you want to see in the world.



Hubble24Greetings from sunny Las Vegas, Nevada and LA, California!

We just finished Suzanne Evans’ Be The Change Event 2014. I always enjoy attending conferences like this because I see old friends and make new ones. Plus, we learned new ways to help people make changes in their lives. And the timing of this event, as the celestial Cardinal Grand Cross happened inviting us all to transform, made this a very special weekend! Now it’s back to LA for a couple more days with our West Coast “kids”!

The last big April astrological event is the New Moon Total Solar Eclipse on April 29 at 2:14 am Eastern Daylight Time. This is a time of big commitment to endings and beginnings. What have you been asked to let go of and what are you ready to start? Commit to your personal growth now. The transformation of the previous celestial happenings is anchored in you now. Move forward in newness. Make a whole-hearted commitment to your own evolution.

I am returning from this event and trip with lots of ideas for some new offerings. When I go through my own transformations in the spiral journey of evolution I pass along to clients the new energies that come in. Remember that you can schedule a Spring Clearing reading with me to make sure that you are interpreting the new energies in a way that helps you to advance in YOUR evolution. These readings are a great way to gain confidence and clarity about your next step! Send me an email if you’d like to explore your possibilities!

Sending you warm desert hugs!

PS: Happy 24th Birthday, Hubble Space Telescope!


Grand cross planetsWhew! We made it through one of the big celestial events of this month! Were you able to view the Full Moon Eclipse on April 15? I did get up in the middle of the night to look but it was cloudy here in Maryland and I couldn’t see it. I have felt the energy this week, and many people are talking about how the Eclipse has affected them.

Now we’re ready for the big one – the Cardinal Grand Cross, April 20-23.

This is when Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto and Mars play together in a big cross with right angles in the middle. We are invited to change and to change in big ways. Here is some guidance fromThe Mountain Astrologer magazine: “Engaging the assistance of others (Mars in partnering Libra) in pursuit of our most creative goals could be the key to changing the course of our lives and helping to bring humanity to the higher level of consciousness promised by Uranus square Pluto.” In other words, collaboration will create more success and growth than competition.

Relationships were up for reassessment during the total eclipse earlier this month and we were invited to look at how we show up for others. Then the Sun moves in the solid Earth sign of Taurus on April 19. While we could choose to resist change by being ‘stubborn as a bull,’ we could also use this solidity to build confidence that we can use these celestial energies to create positive transformation in the world through transforming ourselves.

As my astrologer friend, Gloria Hesseloff, says, “The message of this Grand Cross is the Transformation of Your Belief System through Loving Action. Be optimistic and work with it. Ask the Universe through this time to SHOW ME THE TRUTH ABOUT MYSELF…NO MATTER HOW BEAUTIFUL!”

I have been working with these energies for awhile now and I can tell you that big change is possible! It’s time for each of us to figure out how we are going to shine our inner Light into the world. Who are you, really? Now is the time to look inside. Now is the time to clear those beliefs that make you think you are less than wonderful.

You can do it! If you need help, email me. I am still offering that Spring Tune-up Session at a special rate.Let me help you clear away the blocks that have been holding you back. Together we can claim that transformation that the Solar System is wanting to give you!

Take Loving Action in the direction of your dreams today!


nebula in smcSpring is here! Change is in the air! Hallelujah! Daffodils and crocuses are in bloom in the yard. It’s a joy to be in a new place in Springtime because we have no idea what flowers will pop up for us to enjoy. I love this kind of surprise!

But I like the change in the yard from snow to blossoms! I like being able to sit on the deck and enjoy the sunshine. This is a change from the wintry weather that we have had for so long in Maryland.

This MuseLetter is going to be going through some changes, too. In the coming days, I will be inviting you to answer a few questions about how we can best serve the RosemarySpace CommunityIt’s time for a change, and I would greatly appreciate your comments about how you would like for us to stay connected so that I can continue to share wisdom, news and inspiration with you.

Now that we are in April we have some huge energies coming in that invite us to make BIG SHIFTS! There are 2 eclipses this month – one on the Full Moon on April 15 and the next on the New Moon April 29. In between these two dates is the Grand Cross, formed in the sky when Uranus, Jupiter, Pluto and Mars create a big cross. Wherever this falls in your natal astrological chart, you will be invited to make some big changes in your life.

Whether you follow astrology or not, the energies of this time invite you to shift into creative high gear and manifest those goals that can truly change your life. This is a big time for change! Are you ready?

If you’d like some help healing the past so that you can move forward into your future, changing what you can change so that you are not holding yourself back from manifesting that which you desire, then this is the perfect time to schedule your healing session with me and clear away the blocks, bring in the energy of your personal evolution, and learn what your Purpose really is. Together we can explore the path for you and determine your next step. I am here to help you! Send me an email to inquire about how we can make this happen for you:

Please share with me how these big energies of change are showing up in your life this Spring! Post a comment on my facebook page: Rosemary Bredeson – The Scientific Mystic. And please ‘LIKE’ it, if you haven’t already! I’ll be sharing a lot more inspiration and wisdom on that page in the coming days.

Take time to smell the Spring flowers!


bipolar nebulaAh, Autumn is in the air! Well, first thing in the morning it’s a little bit cooler and I saw 1 leaf drop. I do love Autumn when the weather starts to cool off and there’s a little crispness in the air. Hasn’t happened yet here in Maryland but I look for it every morning.

The New Moon on September 5 brought in some exciting Virgo energy for us all! Remember that the New Moon energy, like the Full Moon energy, starts influencing us 3 days before and 3 days after the actual event. That’s 7 days of impact for each New and Full Moon. This New Moon energy is asking us to take inventory of our lives, use our gifts, and discard anything that is not in alignment with our soul intention, our Soul Purpose.

I may sound like a broken record but it really is time to live your Purpose in the world! What are you tolerating about your life that is keeping you from doing just that? If it is not knowing your Purpose, then learn it. Whether you schedule a Scientific Hand Analysis session with me or a reading or go to an astrologer or a numerologist or a counselor, let your first question be – What is my Purpose?

In line with the inventory that this New Moon is directing, Richard and I have been examining the structure of our business and our work and taking stock of the best ways through which we can reach and help more people. The changes are coming soon. We’ll be offering a Conversation with The Other Side in September [date to be announced shortly] and it will be available in person in Annapolis and online as a video conference. If you’d like to know how to attend a Conversation FOR FREE, check it out here: Information.

Welcome to our new MuseLetter readers! If you haven’t seen last week’s issue, the message was ‘Happy Birthday to YOU!!!’ I hope you have all been celebrating your re-birth every day!

May this week bring you JOY in place of every ‘tolerance’ that you clear away.

Happy Birthday to YOU!!! – Richard’s Commentary

And I can also say Happy Birthday to the Moon today! She is new in Virgo. This just occurred at 7:38 am Eastern time.

Do you celebrate the New Moon each “moonth”? Are you aware of the phases of the moon and her travels through the night sky? The Ancients paid a great deal of attention to this goddess of the heavens. She lighted the way of night travelers, guided the seasons and times to plant, provided a calendar, effected tides and seafaring, and offered a rhythm to life and the basis of myth and wonder.

From modern research we know that life would be very different, if it existed at all, if it weren’t for our moon. Her influence on the planet and our lives is profound. So, I pay a lot of attention to her phases and my interaction with her. If you’ve been reading my posts for a while you’ll know, for example, that I cast an I Ching Gua (a hexagram of yin and yang lines) at each new moon to divine an energy for the up-coming month. (I’ll post that tomorrow.) I also celebrate the new moon as a new beginning, as a birthday of sorts, very much in keeping with Rosemary’s message this week. So, on this new moon day consider her advice:

Happy Birthday to YOU!!! Today is your birthday. You get to choose who you are today, right now, in this moment. You don’t even have to be the same as you were when you woke up this morning. OR you can decide that you like the YOU who woke up and you re-decide to celebrate YOU! Either way, it’s your birthday today.

It is a good time to start something new. I’m going to plant some fall vegetables in my garden today. And Rosemary and I are going to review our business plan and model to determine what’s working and what can be improved. It’s a new day as well as a new moon!

And this new moon is in the sign of Virgo. This too has special meaning. A dear friend and astrologer, Gloria Hesseloff, titled in her newsletter for the New Moon: Work is Love made Visible, using a line from a poem by Kahil Gibran. The Virgo Moon calls us to a higher work. Gloria writes:

Virgo energy challenges you to release any obstacles to finding your sacred work.  Integrating this goal with the radical changes that Pluto and Uranus are demanding of us right now,  ask yourself, “What changes do I need to make to my daily life routines and patterns (Virgo attributes) so I can be an instrument of the Divine?

Virgo energy asks you to become highly competent in a skill that is of value to others.  Then generously offer it as your high service.  Your specific gifts are truly needed at this significant moment in history.

Today is your birthday! Celebrate with me as I celebrate this New Moon and “the first day of the rest of my life”! We are always at choice. I choose to make my love visible through my work.


Are You Ready? – Richard’s Commentary

Rosemary’s opening to her MuseLetter article this week was certainly provocative:

Did you think you could relax because you made it through December 21, 2012?  Think again!

The Shift has begun.  Time has been speeding up for years and we’re moving ahead at an amazing pace.  It’s time to grow, to transform, to evolve.  Hold onto your hat!

Yes, the time is now. And I can certainly feel the urgency of the moment. I have been impacted a lot this week as we are in this very old moon energy in Taurus. My body hurts, my mind isn’t functioning at peak performance and my emotions tend to rule my tongue more often than I’d like! Is it just this old moon, impending new moon and solar eclipse coming our way that has me in such a state? And what can I do to “be ready”?

Then we came across this from one of our astrologer friends; we have trusted Steve Nelson’s readings for us and his deep writing for years! Here’s what Steve says about this time in May:

Karma is fate, dharma is destiny. Karma is in the body as chronic muscle tension that holds encoded past emotional memory. Dharma is our divine purpose to be revealed and realized as karma is let go. Past world patterning or karma can be released through exercise (especially yoga), deep breathing and ritual celebration. Collective karma, the shadow of the age, is up for clearing now. As we clear personal karma we clear world karma. Karma is cleared cosmically by New Moons and by eclipses of the Sun and Moon.

A solar eclipse is Mother Nature’s most powerful instrument for transformation. When an eclipse occurs above, things get eclipsed and are transformed here below. Whatever needs eclipsing comes up in the days/weeks before a solar eclipse. An eclipse is an opportunity to eliminate patterns of thought and behavior that trouble our world. This is an ideal time to clear away what stands in the way of dreams being realized. The May 9/10 solar eclipse is the subject of another prophecy by Nostradamus in Century 9 Quatrain 83: “Sun twentieth of Taurus, the Earth will tremble mightily; It will ruin the great theater filled: And so darken and trouble air, sky and land, the unbeliever will call upon God and the saints.”

The May 9/10 solar eclipse in the 20th degree of Taurus may bring a great earthquake as Nostradamus predicted. We’re advised to stay away from crowded theaters on this day. Our old world patterns are broken one way or another; we can hope and pray for the kinder gentler way.

It sounds to me that all the energy I’m feeling is definitely part of this New Moon/Solar Eclipse energy. It may be a doozy. I’ll definitely “hold on to my hat”!

But what does this mean; how do we prepare and “be ready” for major events that may occur? Steve Nelson recommends ritual work. Ritual is a wonderful way to heighten our awareness and bring consciousness and intention to our plans and actions.

And Steve mentions yoga and deep breathing – no surprise here! As you know from my previous posts I am all about yoga, qigong and breath-work!

I am doing everything in my power to be ready for this New Moon/Eclipse this evening (it occurs here on the east coast at 8:29 pm). Here’s what Rosemary has said about it:

This Solar Eclipse ends a cycle and begins a new one.  Look back at what was happening in your life on May 10, 1994 for some clues about your personal evolution.  We are being invited to release the past, clear negative thought patterns and whatever else might be holding us back from expanded consciousness and evolution.  According to The Mountain Astrologer magazine, Eclipses also affect cellular memory, facilitating our awakening and remembrance of our soul’s blueprint. 

Karma and dharma: release the past and awaken to your soul’s blueprint!

With Steve I wish you a “kinder and gentler” experience of this powerful energy. May you use it for growth!
