Tender and Strong: Taurus Full Moon, Full Heart

A new order is in the early stages of labor, causing ripples of contraction throughout the world. An old order is in its death throws, and there are personal and collective repercussions. We would do well to contemplate our inner and outer lives, to look to our patterns and behaviors, to loosen our grip and open our hands and hearts...

Go Deep and Deeper Still

When we go into the dark time of the year, our consciousness shifts and we have the opportunity to explore and heal our hidden wounds and shadows -  all the times that “make or break” us. Or is it break and make us?

Dreams are Guides

Dreams are direct communications from/with our souls. If we are attentive, they’ll show us the way home to our essential self. They’ll put up sign posts to show us the way home. They’ll even point out the pits and traps that could harm or hinder our journey through waking life. And more, they’ll provide solutions to problems and ways out of the mess. 

Journey into Mabon's Magic

Equinox is upon us. It will be exact on September 22 at 6:55pm PDT when the Sun moves into Libra, the sign of balance and harmony. Day and night will be equal, harmonizing light and dark and enhancing that liminal non-dual space betwixt and between! 

Service and Generosity

“Gratitude is the prayer. Take stock of the blessings received, and succumb to tranquility. It is the dusk of the year, and the darkest months approach, heralded by the North Wind as she takes the remaining leaves from the trees. It is a time for sweet reverie, appreciation, and preparation as all the earth approaches the season of silence and gestation” (Sybil Dana Reynolds, Ink and Honey).

Live Into the Questions

As the moon waxes into fullness, I invite you to question your perceptions and chosen reality. The full moon in Pisces blurs the edges of reality, softening the border between truth and fantasy, known and Unknown, seen and Unseen....dissolving illusions and revealing Mysteries to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see...

Leo New Moon: Learning with Lugh & Tailtiu

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. 

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. 

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.
