  • Virgo Full Moon - 25 August 2018

    Pisces can be self-sacrificing when it is not in touch with the larger picture. The full moon on the Pisces/Virgo axis is about service. This is not necessarily about participating in some worthwhile activity. It is about radiating the light that is within us into our daily life. It is a natural expression of the activity of the Soul.

  • Meditation on the Full Moon in Leo - A Powerful Season of Eclipses

    We have entered the powerful season of eclipses. The new moon, which formed on July 12 at 7:48 PM PDT, was the first of three eclipses occurring in the next four weeks, signaling a time of major endings and beginnings. Eclipses are extra powerful new and full moons; as the Sun, Moon, and Earth line up more closely, cosmic energies are focalized and intensified, accelerating our evolution. Solar eclipses catalyze shifts in our identity and roles; impelling us to align more deeply with our essence, rather than our egos

  • The Full Moon in Cancer 2018 ~ Responsibility and Choices

    The planet Saturn is next to the moon this month during the Cancer full moon strengthening its impact. Saturn and Capricorn ask us to take responsibility for our choices and our lives. Because we are dealing with a Cancer sun we can be emotionally vulnerable. As a water sign Cancer has a sensitive emotional nature and this full moon is asking her to take responsibility for her emotions. She needs to step away from any reactivity and direct her energy inward where she can reflect and get some distance from the drama that may be playing out in her life. She can ground herself in the earth energy of Capricorn. Once centered within herself she will feel safer to open her heart and be vulnerable with others.

  • The Gemini Full Moon - Shadow, Dreams, and Our Inner Voice

    Welcome friends to the full moon, that we are celebrating in the sign of Gemini.  The moon is in a grand trine with Chiron and the North Node. This placement invites us to trust our inner voice and not be silent. We are asked to share our wisdom and truth with honesty, love and authenticity. The planet Jupiter is retrograde in the sign of Scorpio which means we might be facing some challenges from our inner demons, sometimes called our shadow.

  • Taurus Full Moon Meditation - April 2018

  • Finding Sanctuary in the Subtle World

    I began to find sanctuary in the subtle world when II began using flower essences and reading about the deva kingdom. I was introduced to the concept of co-creating with nature. That nature is a living intelligence and that we are hardwired to work in cooperation with these living beings. That they hold the blueprint for our evolution and they desire to work with us to assist us in our own processes of expansion. This was a completely new idea to me.

  • The Fiery Energy of the Aries Full Moon

    As the Sun enters the sign of Aries we welcome the fiery, initiating energy of Spring and the promise of new beginnings. This month we have several planets that converge to strengthen the initiating impulse, so we might be especially prone to impulsive actions and thoughtless activity.

  • Full Moon Meditation - Pisces

    This month we celebrate the sun in the sign of Pisces and the moon in its opposite sign of Virgo. There are 5 planets in Pisces at the time of this full moon so we are flooded with this dreamy, mystical energy. Pisces is a water sign so we know that our emotional bodies will be highly sensitive this month. One of the most significant aspects of this full moon has to do with the planets Neptune and Saturn. Virgo is in opposition to Neptune and is trine to Saturn. What this asks of us is to access our unlimited imagination (Jupiter) and create the structure, (Saturn) to bring it into manifestation. Some good descriptive words for Pisces are: the dreamer, the mystic, the idealist, the martyr, the victim, the lost soul. At its highest expression Pisces can be a visionary, seeing the oneness in all things, and dreaming of how she can serve. But the lower octave of this energy can give her all in an attempt to save the world and thus martyr herself or begin to feel victimized by her sacrifices.
