A Year of Attunements in 2023

Would you like to make sure you can be attuned to the changing energies in the coming year? Especially when they shift month by month, season by season?

It’s been a rough few years.  Our world has changed.  The intensity has been unrelenting.  You know that we’re in the midst of the biggest shift that any of us have experienced in our lifetimes.  Some say this is the biggest evolutionary shift that humanity has experienced.

On your best days, you know that everything is going to turn out all right.  You also know that this shift is going to be transformative for the whole planet.

And yet, you’re facing the fact that you have been in survival mode for at least parts of the past three years, if not all of it. You’re tired. You want it to be done. And you know it’s not.

You may know that you are here right now, at this place and this time for a purpose, and you want the support to fulfill that purpose in the larger transformation that you’re a part of/ participating in.

You want to be part of the solution – you want to help bring the new age to birth.

Astrologically speaking, 2021 and 2022 were both powerful and overwhelming years. I’ve received so much feedback from attendees of my healing and celebration Attunements, letting me know about the incredible shifts, growth, and expansiveness you’ve enjoyed as a result of these sessions.  2023 is shaping up to be a watershed year, and I want to provide a strong container for you to find support for the many powerful astrological events coming up. 

If you’ve been in my attunements before, then you know.

Wouldn’t it be great to be automatically included in all the attunement sessions this year, plus all the extra events that happen in between?

Quick Details

Time: 8 – 9:30 pm eastern time.

We meet on Zoom, and every session (except remote attunements) are recorded and sent to you.

This Year of Attunements Includes:

  • knot-white
    At least six to eight (6-8) celebration, attunement, and healing sessions.
  • knot-white
    Recordings of all regular sessions, generally within 2 business days of the session.
  • knot-white
    Remote attunements for the remaining quarter and cross-quarter holidays that mark the seasonal changes and the wheel of the year just for you. This includes the equinoxes, solstices, and the festivals of fire and light marking the beginning of Spring (Imbolc), Summer (Beltane), Autumn (Lughnasadh/Lammas), and Winter (Samhain). For these sessions, I will normally send you an email to let you know when I will be doing the attunement, rather than hosting a call.
  • knot-white
    Remote attunements for particularly important astrological events throughout the year just for you. For these sessions, I will normally send you an email to let you know when I will be doing the attunement, rather than hosting a call.
  • knot-white
    At least one or two of these remote attunements, and maybe more, will be on Zoom. You will receive an email with the Zoom link, and I will send a recording afterward.
  • knot-white
    These extra attunements are only available for those who register for the Annual Attunement Package.

Powerful! and Incredible! Are the most-used adjectives I hear from those who write to me after attending an attunement.

One attendee, Becky, told me this: I was blown away by the energy I felt during both the attunements and healings. Now that a few days have passed, my awareness seems more expansive and I sense being an integral part of the Whole.

I would love for you to continue to experience the kinds of transformations and integrations that Becky and other attendees have enjoyed over the years.

Many of you have told me that because of the powerful nature of the Attunements, you want to make sure you never miss one. 

Astrological energies being what they are, not all of them adhere to a nice, reliable schedule that would allow me to host one, say, on the second Friday of every month! As you know, that means you have to constantly be on the lookout in your inbox for an announcement about the next session.

Imagine how much easier it would be if you knew you were automatically registered for the next Attunement!

For 2023, it really can be that easy. The Annual Attunement Package provides a simple way to join the attunements with one sign-up.  It also provides so much more.  

The Annual Attunement Package is a kind of toolkit to help see you through anything and everything the astrological events of the year ahead have in store for you. It also provides the grounding and connection with the earth and the seasons that will help you navigate the astrological events.

While the session dates are to be determined, I will say that I will intentionally pair most of the sessions with cross-quarter holiday celebrations because creating community, sharing ritual, and gathering together are some of the biggest ways we can live into the shifts that we are all experiencing. By doing so, we help the collective live into these shifts as well. 

In 2022, I offered 8 scheduled attunements on Zoom for significant astrological events. Most of them were paired with a Cross-Quarter holidays or Solstice or Equinox. In addition, there were 10-12 bonus remote attunements that popped in because of astrological events that were happening. Two of those were special Zoom sessions. Due to the watershed nature of this year, it looks like that there will be at least 5 more remote/special Zoom attunements than 2022.

2023 is going to be a watershed astrological year, as Pluto is finally making its firt move out of Capricorn and into Aquarius. This is the event we’ve been moving toward for quite some time. Pluto is the last of the major planets to move into Aquarius.

Everything I’m reading says that the astrology of 2023 will continue to be challenging, especially through the first few months of the year, as Pluto makes its first move into Aquarius. By May or June, however, there will be a big shift, and the energy will feel very different than what you’ve experienced the past three years. There are great opportunities to move forward into the Aquarian era, and to use these energies for deep transformation, growth, and bringing you own creative projects into the world.

A few highlights:

  • knot-whiteknot-white
    March 2: Jupiter and Venus connect (a conjunction in astrological terms). This will bring an expansion of love, relationships, and beauty at a higher and more spiritual level. Expansion of wealth and abundance are also themes.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    March 7: Saturn moves into Pisces. This is a huge opportunity for healing, especially spiritual healing. It is also bringing science and spirituality together.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    March 23: Pluto makes its first pass into Aquarius. This is the event that all the intensity of the past year has been leading to. It's a huge sea-change. It will create a shift in political and social structures. When Pluto moves into Aquarius there is always a power shift towards the people (more shared power and collaboration, for example).
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    May 17: Jupiter moves into Taurus.
  • knot-whiteknot-white
    That's just the first half of the year! Several other other astrological events in the second half of the year will also have a big impact that will help us navigate all of this change. And as some of these conflicts begin to resolve, we will also begin to see more unity consciousness, collaborative power structures, and more transformation and awakening as we continue the larger shift into Aquarius that was inaugurated in December of 2020.

The 2023 Annual Attunement Package will include
all of these and more.

What is an attunement or alignment and what is its power?

Attunement means to “bring into harmony.” It helps you to be “in tune” with the energies that are strongly affecting us. Alignment means “the proper positioning or state of adjustment of parts in relation to each other.” When you are aligned with the energies, that puts you in sync with them and gives you a greater ability to incorporate the gifts they bring and to use these energies more effectively.

Being attuned or aligned means that you have nature’s support for these shifts. This session will connect you with the opportunities for growth that these events is bringing.

These sessions are for everyone!

I have been guided to offer a series of celebration, attunement, and healing sessions throughout this year to support you in continuing to move forward into the light and expansion that seems to be covered over by present events.

These sessions are for all! Anyone on our planet who is experiencing or has experienced both the contraction and the push toward transformation that we’ve been undergoing will experience the benefits of this session.

We have a great opportunity in the midst of these challenging times.

Being Attuned to the upcoming astrological events will help you:

  • knot-white
    work with them for your own personal and spiritual transformation
  • knot-white
    see the larger picture
  • knot-white
    make the best use of the astrological energies for your healing and the healing of the planet as well

There are three components to these sessions.

The first is celebration.

We will celebrate the cross-quarter holidays of light and fire. These holidays are the true beginnings of each season. Celebrating them together – yes, even together online — will give you a sense of grounding and connectedness to each other and the earth.

Gathering together, celebrating with ritual (even as simple as lighting a candle and sharing a blessing), will also re-connect you with the light that is coming through and changing every one of us and our planet. More than that, it will be a time to drink in that light so it can continue to illuminate you and help others to experience the light.

The second is healing.

We will gather for healing – individually and collectively. Each person who is registered will receive the healing session, and we will also do some healing work for the whole planet.

The last component is attunement.

As I have been doing for the few years, I will attune you to the current astrological energies so that you can move through with grace and ease. I will also attune you to the cross-quarter holidays themselves, so you can connect deeply with the earth and find strength and sustenance from that connection.

These attunements will also help you deal with the huge transformation that we’re in the midst of.  Pluto makes its first pass from Capricorn into Aquarius in March, and completes its move in January 2023.  The attunements will help you deal with any shake-ups and volatility from a grounded and secure place.  They can also catapult you forward in your own personal and spiritual growth.

Finally, these attunements will re-connect you with the huge shift that happened in December (the Great Conjunction), and with the light that is bringing awakening, change, and a global shift from power-over to power-with; the light that is literally pouring into our planet and each one of us, changing our very DNA.

What are the cross quarter holidays?

A cross-quarter holiday is mid-way between the solstices and equinoxes. In ancient Celtic tradition, these days were the most important holidays of the year. They were festivals of fire (think dancing around great bonfires) and light. Each celebrated a different phase of light in the year. They also marked the change of seasons.

These seasonal holidays draw us back to basics. More specifically, they:.

  • knot-white
    Connect you with the earth.
  • knot-white
    Help you get grounded and centered.
  • knot-white
    Provide the reminder that the drama and the eruptions and disruptions may be the loudest voices, but they will not have the last word.
  • knot-white
    Help you step back and take the long view, knowing that what is occurring presently is passing, and is in service of a greater wholeness for all people.
  • knot-white
    Remind you that what is causing the most noise and drama is not all there is.
  • knot-white
    Give you confidence that this cycle is passing – or almost past – and courage to step into the new.

When you attune to the cycles of the earth, you are no longer swept away by the swirling and eruptions on the surface.
you remember you are part of something much larger and greater.

When you attune to the festivals of light, you bring light back into your life and the lives of others. Together, we shine the light of truth onto the shenanigans of those acting out more hatred and division.

Your Guide: Mary Shields, PhD

Since 2003, I have been working with astrological energies as a healing practitioner. About a decade ago, Spirit gave me the gift of attuning and aligning people with these energies in such a way that they can use them for their greatest benefit and healing. I have been working both individually and in groups in this way ever since.

Additionally, I bring a strong background in Celtic spirituality. I lived in Scotland for two years, and also did research on Celtic spirituality as part of my sabbatical. As a minister, I know first-hand the importance of ritual and gathering. I love facilitating both, and have been doing so for several decades.

One of my gifts is creating community, and I now have close to a decade of experience doing it online. For many years, I did these attunements and celebrations via teleconference. Zoom has enhanced our sense of connection and community by adding the ability to see each other as we participate together.

What happens on the call?

This is an energetic and healing session, so the process is not like a workshop or class with exercises. Celebration will begin and end each event. I will begin with opening sacred space. We will begin with the celebration and attunement to the Solstice. I will let you know ahead of time what to bring or prepare (for example, I may ask you to have a candle ready to light together).

Next, I will give some information about the astrological event(s), as well as the challenges and opportunities it brings. We will then dive into the attunement(s) and session, which I will explain as they happen. There will be some short periods of silence. I may ask you to breathe deeply or tap your head, heart, and navel (the three brain centers of the body — to learn more, click here). The last part of the healing session is devoted to the healing of the planet, with all of us participating through holding space. We will end by completing our celebration together.

Generally, you are in a relaxed, receptive state throughout. I do suggest you have a notebook handy for any notes you wish to make. I also suggest that you make sure you are in a private, receptive space.

It is especially powerful if you can be on video for the first part of the call, so we can see and feel each other more directly that way. And not to worry if you can’t be on the call live, or need to be on audio/phone only: if you are registered for the call, you are fully connected into the entire event.

What might you experience during or after the session?

You may or may not feel anything during or after the session. That’s perfectly fine. The energy and healing will still be working in you whether you can feel it or not. Whatever you experience (or don’t experience) is just right for you. You will receive what you need.

You may seem to “fall asleep” during the session. Or, you may fall asleep every time you try to listen to the session for a while. This is also perfectly normal. If this happens, know that you are in a very deep, restful state where Spirit can do the deeper work inside you. Don’t resist it and don’t worry — you haven’t missed a thing! Just follow your body’s needs as you listen, and the session will work in you as it needs to.

After the session, you may feel energized and ready to take on the world, or you may feel, as my client Linda told me, “Like I was hit with a truck.” The session will affect you differently than it will other people. What you feel after one session may be completely different than what you feel after another. The energy and healing will be continuing to work in you for quite some time. Be gentle with yourself, especially the day after. Drink lots of water, rest, and give yourself time to integrate.

What others have said about attunements

“Powerful,” and “Incredible” are the most-used adjectives I hear from those who write to me after an attunement.

Some of the comments I’ve received about the last celebration, attunement and healing session: “Amazing Session!” “Beautiful and powerful session!”

“Thank you for hosting the attunement. Somehow, I felt I needed to join in this. Over the past couple of weeks, I have experienced low back pain, affecting hips and legs, stiffness, and soreness. I felt the relief in the sacrum, which also relieved the hips and legs. It all went away when the bones balancing happened! I have been able to squat, not all the way, but something I have not been able to do for a long time. I’m hoping this lasts so that I can do more on my yoga practice.” A day later, she wrote, “So good to be able to move without the pain and stiffness!”
Vicki W, Michigan

“That session was so powerful. I literally felt the fear lift off me as soon as you mentioned…. I was carrying so much fear. And it just kept getting better from there. I couldn’t move after – had to integrate and just felt so peaceful.”
Angela S, Massachusetts

“Those in my orbit are noticeably more ‘lighter’ and joyous since the session.”
Casper B, British Columbia

“Thank you, Mary. I so enjoyed the session and the background and astrological facts that accompanied it. It was a great evening and loved being connect to 99+ people I’ve never met, but we will be connected now for sure. The healing of the planet was wonderful and so needed.”
Cindy H., North Carolina

“I joined the group only by phone last night and was blown away by the energy I felt during both the attunements and healings.” A few days later, she wrote, “My awareness seems more expansive and I sense being an integral part of the Whole.”
Becky A., Ohio
