The essence of this time of year is joy grounded in a foundational understanding that all things come to an end, so let’s in-joy the moment here and now. Let this time support you in clearing away the weeds and brambles that are choking the life force and tangling you up in confusion, distraction, and overwhelm. Step into the golden light of late summer and feel yourself in connection to the Land and All That Is.Read More
At the end of this week we enter the portal of Lughnasadh - a cross quarter holy day marking the midpoint between Summer Solstice and Fall Equinox. It’s a time when we acknowledge and express our gifts and skills as individuals in service to the collective.Read More
Every New Moon is a time to begin again. This Cancer New Moon - the sign of the Great Mother - invites us to set intentions for those things closest to our heart - our home, our family, our community. It also invites us to look deeply into our home life and make necessary changes. In that, is an evocation of empathy and compassion for the suffering within and without. So, as the Moon darkens and turns, write your prayers and speak them aloud. Let the Great Mother hear and hold you.Read More
Tell me, those of you who watch the sun set and walk in the moonlight…How does it feel? On your skin. Under your skin. In your flesh and bones. It’s been months, four or six perhaps, since I’ve seen the night sky.Read More
This Gemini New Moon is bringing me into a place of deep listening. A couple days ago in the darkening of the Moon, after an intensive week of feeling and healing, I was straining to hear the silence beneath and in the noise. And now…silence, waiting, longing…Peace and Clarity in the not yet knowing, but the trusting, yes, the trusting that all is coming.Read More
Full Moons are bright mirrors (directly opposite the Sun), providing us with a moment to pause and reflect on the energies within and all around us. This Full Moon is in Sagittarius, opposite the Sun in Gemini. Sagittarius, symbolized by an arrow, reminds us to choose, focus on the target and move forward. Gemini is a storyteller, a Queen Muse, granting us the freedom to fly in the vast sky of dreams. For those of us who are seekers of love and freedom, this Sagittarius Full Moon is a powerful ally.

This is the time of the New Moon in Taurus, sign of the bull. Close your eyes and go back into ancient memory when the gods and goddesses roamed the earth. Remember a time when the Earth and the earthiness of our animal bodies were sacred, gifts of the god and goddess: He as the virile bull, stag king, goat-footed god; She as the Earth and great horned goddess with a mantle of stars and crescent moon upon her crown.

The Beltane Season is upon us! The Earth is quickening. Power is stirring. Magic is afoot. This is one of my favorite times to gather in ceremony and either go on or guide a retreat. Being a new mama, the Beltane circle this year will be just a few potent hours at White Lotus in Poulsbo, WA.

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
