Aries is the great initiator and ignitor. New Moons are initiators, as well. So, with the New Moon in Aries, we have a great fiery energy to ignite our dreams and passions! The fire is a powerful energy of creation and destruction. In the transformation is a chaos that destabilizes, burning through the obstacles that hold us back - inner and outer.Read More
...for this coming Libra Blue Moon (which is all about beauty, harmony and peace), may you embody the beautiful way you are interconnected with all your relations - human and non-human, seen and unseen, near and far, past and future, waking and dreaming...Read More
Today is laundry day at the Ranch. It’s also nearly the New Moon - a time to clear out the old and set intentions for the next cycle, which will usher us through Ostara (Spring Equinox), Easter, Passover and a beautiful Libra Blue Moon.Read More
Yesterday under the tides of the waxing Virgo Full Moon, my little family of three set off on the road for two months of traveling and teaching. So, this Moon is truly initiating and amplifying our drive to serve!Read More
As we turn towards Spring, the remembrance of what was, nourishes what will be. I go on daily walks with Taliesin (who is already four months old!) and we say hello to every tree, leaf, bird, stick, flower and stone we see. Tiny flowers are budding on once barren branches and dried leaves are making songs as they swirl in the wind.Read More
Stories “in-form” us - they are part of this body of work called Life. The primary story in-forming Imbolc for me this year is the “Maidens of the Wells” from a French text called The Elucidation. Over a period of a few weeks, I came across it three times in three different places. In Celtic cosmology, three is a most sacred number. When something occurs three times, you can be sure that it is not random - the Great Mystery is trying to get your attention! And specifically, the message could be coming from the Great Goddess, as She appears in three forms - maiden, mother, crone.Read More
Here we are at the threshold of the Leo Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse - a Blue Blood Moon. Energies are running high, and polarities may feel increasingly intense with big swings, particularly in the energetic body - realm of the spirit. One moment your spirits may be high, and the next you may be crashing. This is the same for the outer world - As Within, So Without. At least that’s how I’ve been experiencing the lead up to this fiery, spirited Leo Moon!

"Another world is not only possible,
she is on her way. On a quiet day,
I can hear her breathing."
New Moons carry the energy of initiation. With this Moon in the sign of Capricorn, you may be feeling the pull to initiate big change in the physical plane - the areas of structure, work and money in particular. You may be feeling a strong call to create something substantial, something with lasting value and meaning.Read More
And so, we begin again. The turning of the calendar year comes with a collective turning towards transformation and boy! it’s time for that! However, true transformation takes us to an uncomfortable edge that we may want to back away from - this is the ego’s way of maintaining safety and security in the known.Read More
Be forewarned and prepared, this full moon may be emotionally and psychically intense! But have no fear, She’s got you and She will carry you into the new year with a Fierce Love.Read More
After three days of Winter Solstice, we celebrate the return of the light - the birth of a child-like spirit brightening the way ahead.Read More
“To Know the Dark” by Wendell Berry
To go in the dark with a light is to know the light.
To know the dark, go dark. Go without sight,
and find that the dark, too, blooms and sings,
and is traveled by dark feet and dark wings.
Can you track a moment that awakened you to your soul’s purpose and completely shifted your trajectory? Do you live in a way that honors that pivotal moment?Read More
Earlier this week i was having a conversation with a sister from the priestess path i walk, and she said a phrase that i fell in love with: “the magical mundane”. She saw magic in the changing colors of the leaves and the mountains rising above and around her. She felt connected to something greater, higher, deeper. She rediscovered her innate wisdom.Read More
This is the last of our Samhain series as we are quickly being ushered towards Yule. The presence of the Mother - Holy, Blessed, Beloved, Divine - is here among us. One form of Her is the Black Madonna. She is the Dark Mother of the Golden Child. She came in quite strongly for me just before Samhain, and She was with me through the 22 hours of labor with Taliesin. I feel Her here, still. She carries each one of us in Her womb through the dark half of the year, nourishing our Dreams and bringing them forth to and for this Earth.Read More
This is such a beautiful time of year. We have moved through the Samhain portal and are on the Otherside with Thanksgiving just days away.
Wherever you are, whatever you do, whoever you’re with, step slightly outside the circle of activity for just a moment. Slow down. Take a few deep breaths and be the One Who Watches. Observe your surroundings with all senses - sight, touch, smell, taste, sound - bring it all in. Savor the moment and put it in your memory box.Read More
(excerpt from the “Bewitching Samhain 2017 Guidebook” inspired by the Samhain Season of 2017)
Samhain is a time of divination - seeing beyond normal perception into the Great Mystery. There are many forms of divination: tarot, runes, pendulums, divining wands, crystals, bird flight and more. Dreaming is one of your most innate forms of divination on this journey of embodiment because they come through you and live in you. You’ll need nothing but your Whole Self.Read More
We are at the midpoint of the Samhain season - a season that brings us into intimacy with the Mysteries of Death and Rebirth. As we enter deeper into the darkness, we may experience the radiance that pulses within.

“If you come into your soul-rhythm, then the final meeting with your physical death need not be threatening or destructive. That final meeting will be the encounter with your own deepest identity, namely, your soul…Your death can be a wonderfully creative event opening you up to embrace the divine that always lived secretly inside you.” (John O’Donohue, Anam Cara)Read More
