Warning Will Robinson…Orionid Meteor Shower! October 21, 2016


The Orionid meteor shower, where Earth passes through debris left by the Halley comet (officially known as Comet 1P), is currently peaking. The shower started on October 2 and was visible for around a week but now is reaching its most intense period during October 20 and 21.

Although, if you miss the meteors there’s still the opportunity to seem them all the way through to around November 7.

The shower happens every year in October and sees the meteors travelling at around 41 miles per second – this is a relative speed of 148,000 mph (238,000 km/h). Usually, the meteors appear fairly faint in the sky but in areas with dark skies, little light pollution, and minimal cloud, there is still a chance of them being visible.

Enjoy the show,

Hunters Moon October 16, 2016


If you’re prone to tilt your head and howl at the moon, like the great hunters the coyotes, October 16, in Aries, will be the only night this month when the moon will be visible in the sky all night long. Just be mindful of the neighbors when you howl!

All you Moon Lovers Mark your calendars because this is the last Supermoon of the year! It is also known as a sanguine or “blood” moon, the term “Hunters Moon” is used traditionally to refer to a full moon that appears during the month of October. This full Moon is also called the Travel Moon and the Dying Grass Moon.

To the Native Americans full moons were a way to keep track of the seasons and make appropriate preparations for survival. Besides, with falling leaves and the fattening of wild game, also preparing for winter, who could argue that this month’s moon signaled a good time to go hunting. Hunter’s Moon the name for the full moon after the Harvest Moon, which is the full moon nearest the September autumnal equinox. That’s why October’s moon bears the name Hunter’s Moon.

The Hunters Full Moon is also called the Shedding Moon, Blood Moon, or the Falling Leaf Moon. Coming right before Samhain/Halloween, it is a time when the nights are crisp and clear, and you can sense a change in the energy around you.

When the Moon is full the Sun and the Moon are in opposite zodiac signs. This is a time that is supercharged with balancing energies, although many tend to be thrown off by the intensity of the moon’s effect on us as she reaches her peak. This is a time when the Solar (masculine) and the Lunar (feminine) energies are in harmony. Now is a wonderful time for us to find a healthy balance of these two energies within. Within all of us are these two energies, whether male or female.

For those who set intentions with the New Moon, this is now a time of forward movement and a time for action, upon your intentions. The Full Moon supports and encourages breakthroughs and releases of that which no longer serves our greatest and highest good.

This Full Moon is to help clear and remove any blockages with you physical and spiritual bodies which may be still in your way, whether on a conscious or subconscious level. This healing supports and encourages the release of emotional blockages and fears that hold you back from realizing your Highest Potential.

Use red candles and burn cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger as your incense during this full moon.

This is the time when the veil between our world and the spirit world are at its thinnest. Use this time for spiritual growth. If there is a deceased ancestor you wish to contact, this is a great month to do it. Throughout October work on your spiritual self, and pay attention to messages you get in your dreams. Plan a ritual to remember those who have passed from this world, and be sure to make an offering to them.

An in depth Spiritual Reading should be done every moon cycle. Since, every moon cycle represents a change it not only affects our external forces but our internal forces as well. Call today to find out what is in store for you during this time of change, (786)-375-5434

In Memory of John Lennon’s 76th Birthday!

October 09, 1940 one of the great voices of the world was born. John Lennon always spoke his mind and was a true voice that we needed so many years ago. His words are still valid today.

My entire life changed when I was twelve years old and the Beatles came to America in 1964 which opened up the whole world for me.  Their music turned me on so much that it was just like I had gone into another dimension. I understood the music and found it waking me up as though my previous twelve years I had been asleep.

The first time I saw their photograph John Lennon struck me as someone unique. My girlfriends all were in love with Paul McCartney. I was not in love with John, but when I heard him in interviews I loved his wit and I bought his first book, “In His Own Write” and found his humor to be the same as mine. The music of the Beatles was magic at that time, and it certainly lit a fire under me that has not extinguished to this day.

For those of you who were not alive when the Beatles blasted across America you will not easily understand the significance of their impact upon not only America, but the entire world.  They changed our culture. The Beatles arrived in America just under three months after the assassination of President John Kennedy. This assassination had brought America into a massive depression and the fresh lively spirit of the Beatles was exactly what the country needed to boost itself.

I was fortunate to see the Beatles perform live three times and luckily I was close to the stage the last time I saw them, and it was indescribable. It was a lasting memory. I followed the Beatles faithfully until their breakup and from there I continue to follow each one’s music. But as always John seemed to be expressing the feelings that I had.

John was always the most outspoken, and, at one point in 1966, he was condemned in the United States because of stating that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus.  He was not saying that they were greater than Jesus but just that their popularity extended farther. It was the truth at that time.  From then on he received death threats and was told that he would be assassinated during their 1966 United States tour.  This is one of the main reasons the Beatles stopped performing live.

Fame was a great pressure on John, and he looked for other avenues to explore having conquered the world.  He discovered LSD and used it to open up his creativity.  From there he discovered meditation and went to India to practice and learn from a master.  He met Yoko Ono, and they fell in love even though they were both married at the time.  He felt Yoko was his soul mate, and they were together until the end of his life.

They started a movement for peace and love.  He gained new world recognition for his peace movement and his views against all wars.  He expressed his views through his music and many people paid attention.  His goal was to have people get along and follow the path of love and peace.  For a time John went into seclusion, but in 1980 he was making a comeback with a new album, the first in five years, and ready to get back into his many causes.

I want to remember all that he did in his short 40 years.  He definitely kept me aware of what was going on in the world through his music and his peaceful demonstrations.  He gave a voice to the consciousness that so many were feeling and unable to find the words or ways to express it.  John did.

Each year new people discover John Lennon for the first time.  In Havana, Cuba, they have a wonderful bronze statue of John Lennon sitting casually on a park bench as though he is observing those who pass by.  Recently a teenager asked me if I knew who John Lennon was. I just had to smile at that question.

It’s hard to believe it’s been 36 years since John was assassinated, but his legacy will live forever and that speaks greatly for the man. Because John was only 40 years old when he died he will always be remembered young and I wonder what he would have been like at 76 years of age. He still would have been turning out fabulous music and art, just as Paul McCartney, Ringo, and George Harrison have done throughout the years.

I continue to listen to the Beatles and John Lennon’s music and always enjoy it. I am thankful that I lived in the most exciting time there was the 1960’s and I was able to experience Beatlemania full on.

So Happy Birthday John and thank you for everything you gave us. You will always live in our hearts.

With love,
Cherokee Billie

A Poem for Janis Joplin


Janis Joplin – a Poem by Andrew Vinstra

They say she sang from her testicles,

so virile they sprung whole from her body

and hovered above her

like a setting sun, an ascendant moon

pushing and pulling like a loom

through the web of her hair that flows back

from her scalp like all the waters of the earth.

She sang from a tide as wide as the idea of penis

and pussy in harmony freefalling

together in a frictionless rhythm of oneness.

She rose on the exhaled breath constricted

from the squeal of love between mothers and daughters.

Above gravity’s pull of rage and shame

Janis levitates on a drawn note of pain.

Out of the chaos of a new birth of mourning

the feral child begins to wail.

When she starts in to moan

even the stars will cease their song.

46 years ago October 4 Janis died of a heroin overdose at 27 years old. Janis Joplin, whose voice is still stands out unique. She was able to communicate with her voice even when she used no words, just the sounds of an aching heart. She was the first female rock superstar. She opened the door way for all that followed her. She gave it her all and it remains so even to this day.

Rest Gently Sweet Pearl,

Jimi Hendrix died 46 years ago, September 18, 1970

jimiIt blows my mind that it has been 46 years since I was a teenager and heard the news that Jimi Hendrix had died. It just seems like a couple of years ago. Time Keeps On Slipping Into the Future!

So much happened 46 years ago that affected my life forever. On September 18, 1970 Jimi Hendrix died. I had seen him perform live ten times and no one ever blew me away like he did. I was a straight kid and did not use drugs, yet I understood completely what his music was about. People often associate those who like Jimi Hendrix with drugs; you don’t need drugs to appreciate his art. I wish I could help you feel the experience of him live because literally I could feel my body vibrate and move in what ever direction he wanted it to when he played his guitar. Jimi is often considered the greatest guitarist in rock and roll. He is known for playing guitar left-handed and behind his back and with his teeth without missing a single note. It was an amazing experience and no one else ever was able to do that for me.

I lived in Los Angeles and I saw most of the major groups in the 1960’s and 1970’s. I am so grateful I lived through that amazing time. People have tried to capture that time period today, but unless you were there you will never really understand or experience it. I had just seen Jimi Hendrix about two months prior to his death. He came on stage much different than before. He did not have a smile as he usually did and just played his songs without much emotion. I felt that something was wrong in this man’s life, but had no idea what it was. Turns out the man was overworked and burnt out, but the promoters kept booking more and more performances for him.

The news of Jimi’s death came on a Friday and I spent the weekend feeling the loss of such a beautiful person and the greatest guitar player ever. It was hard to believe because he was so young, only 27 years old, and to be gone and to lose what could have been. He died from suffocation (in his own vomit) after taking too many sleeping pills. He was not a heavy drug user, of course he used drugs it was common for the time, but he was not a drug addict. I believe the man was just looking for some peace and quiet. I had my own private goodbye to Jimi that weekend.

For those of us who lived during this wonderful creative time we can never forget this genius artist that changed the world then quickly left. His influence is felt even to this day and will continue to be felt for centuries to come. What if he never would have truly lived and expressed what he felt? The world would have missed out on so much. Jimi Hendrix could not read or write music, but did that stop him from playing the guitar? No. Jimi Hendrix is listed as the number one guitar player in the world by the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. There are no limitations to your life when you truly live. Let his life be an inspiration to you to let go of all inhibitions and live your life freely and fully no matter what your age. We are supposed to live not just exist. Live today!

Life in this world is very short and as you get older you really realize how short it is. There are times where I would give anything to go back and live those happy carefree times again. This is why it is critical to try to live every day to its fullest and create happiness for your life. Life ends much too quickly and there is no reason on earth not to make the best of each day. Granted not every day is going to be wonderful, but you do have a choice in how you deal with each day. All I can say is live fully now.

Want to know what it was like to see Jimi Hendrix live? I have a two part of video about the first time I saw Jimi Hendrix in 1968. Part One Click Here. Part Two Click Here.

My wonderful cat Isis absolutely loved Jimi Hendrix. Whenever I would play his music she would sit in front of the big speakers in the living room and listen intently. A reach the point all I had to say was, “Isis Hendrix’s on.” She would come running into the living room from wherever she had been and sit down by the speaker.

“It’s funny the way most people love the dead. Once you are dead, you are made for life.” Jimi Hendrix

Thank you Jimi for all you gave us,
Cherokee Billie

The History of Labor Day


I find it interesting to know the history about certain holidays and here is information on Labor Day, which was first held in 1882. It became a federal holiday in 1894. It was originally intended that the day would be filled with a street parade to allow the public to appreciate the work of the trade and labor organizations. After the parade, a festival was to be held to amuse local workers and their families. In later years, prominent men and women held speeches. This is less common now, but is sometimes seen in election years.

One of the reasons for choosing to celebrate this on the first Monday in September was to add a holiday in the long gap between Independence Day and Thanksgiving.

Labor Day was originally organized to celebrate various labor associations’ strengths of and contributions to the United States economy. It is largely a day of rest in modern times. Many people mark Labor Day as the end of the summer season and a last chance to make trips or hold outdoor events.

In some neighborhoods, people organize fireworks displays, barbecues and public arts or sports events. The football season starts on or around Labor Day and many teams play their first game of the year during Labor Day weekend. As it is the last chance for many people to take summer trips, there may be some congestion on highways and at airports. Public transit systems do not usually operate on their regular timetables.

Here are some interesting quotes about labor.

Anatole France

Man is so made that he can only find relaxation from one kind of labor by taking up another.

Thomas Geoghegan

When people ask me, ‘Why can’t labor organize the way it did in the thirties?’ the answer is simple: everything we did then is now illegal.

Abraham Lincoln

If any man tells you he loves America, yet hates labor, he is a liar. If any man tells you he trusts America, yet fears labor, he is a fool.

Henry George

Poorly paid labor is inefficient labor, the world over.

John Locke

It is labor indeed that puts the difference on everything.

Bill Dodds

Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but that name was already taken.

Marc Chagall

Work isn’t to make money; you work to justify life.

Dorothea Dix

A man usually values that most for which he has labored; he uses that most frugally which he has toiled hour by hour and day by day to acquire.

Theodore Roosevelt

No man needs sympathy because he has to work, because he has a burden to carry. Far and away the best prize that life offers is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.

Doug Larson

If all the cars in the United States were placed end to end, it would probably be Labor Day weekend.

May you have a wonderful day my friends..

Many blessings,
Cherokee Billie
