Checking in with mini-Astrology and Tarot readings for the masses.
As Samhain fast approaches and the wheel of the year turns us towards winter, Ani and Lyn thought it a fine time to tune in to the patterns of energy affecting us all. Combining their intuitive skills in tarot and astrology, they will offer brief on-air readings for callers to the program.
According to the Celtic tradition, this is the time of year where the veil between the worlds grows thinnest, allowing for psychic insight, and communicating with those who have passed over. This is a time that many cultures honor and celebrate the dead and ancestors. To continue that tradition, Ani and Lyn will welcome calls from listeners who would like to give thanks to an ancestor, celebrating their names and deeds.
There will be a very limited number of private consultations by Ani and Lyn offered as a thank-you gift to our listeners who contribute during the program. These consultations are a rare opportunity to have a more in depth reading with these two talented practioners.
News and updates from Occupy Wallstreet-- the beginning is near...
Ani and Lyn field information from the burgeoning Occupy Wallstreet movement. We will speak with people in the Portland occupation, as well as New York.
Hundreds of cities around the world are participating in solidarity actions in support of the Occupy Wallstreet action which started an encampment on September 17th. Bringing together thousands of people to discuss corporate greed and corruption, the occupiers are working together to create demands of significant changes to our system.
And it's spreading.
Permaculture! Getting skills to build our world in balance. NW Permaculture Convergence 10/14 - 16
Matt Bibeau will join Ani and Lyn to talk about permaculture. What is it, and why is it important? How can permaculture help us in these interesting times in which we find ourselves? There is change all around us, and we know we need to transform our culture. What tools does permacuture offer us on a local level?
The Northwest Permaculture Convergence will be held October 14 - 16th. With supporting events around the convergence there are opportunities to get involved in this transformative movement; providing opportunities for our bio-region to take a leap forward in the work that we need to do to transition from a degenerative to a regenerative culture.
Matt Bibeau is a core organizer of the Permaculture Convergence, a 4-day event focusing on proactive solutions to meeting the social, ecological and economical needs of our times, on a scale that builds community and local resiliency.
Matt received his Masters degree from Portland State University, he is a resident and educator at Tryon Life Community Farm where he serves as the organization's in-house permaculture teacher, as well as the Development Director of their outdoor school: Mother Earth School. Matt is also a core organizer of City Repair's Village Building Convergence and serves on the board of the Learning Gardens Institute and Wisdom of the Elders.
With so many urgent situations, what's your priority for the US? Avoid letting fear be your guide.
As a nation we are ignoring the very real threats of climate change, a collapsing economy & humanitarian / basic support programs, and never ending wars at home and abroad, while continuing the madness of anti-terrorism hysteria.
Coyotes, Cougars, Turkey Vultures, Owls and Hawks oh my! The natural world is coming to an urban area near you. What are the literal and mythical meanings? Are we better humans with other predators near by?
Saturday was International Vulture Awareness Day

Perspective checked! Ani & Lyn explore the importance of travel.
What did you do on your summer vacation? Ani accompanied her partner to Buenos Aires, Argentina, for a little medical tourism. She wandered a city rich in street art and protests, and is left with the nagging question, "What can we do to bring people in the US out of alienation and apathy?"
Traveling is a great way to gain a new perspective of what is all around us. As we live our lives day to day, our surroundings often become invisible. Every now and again it's crucial to get out of our own fishbowls, so we can really see what's going on inside.
