  • Gemini Full Moon Meditation 2019

    The exact moment of this month’s full moon in the is 1:31 am (PDT) on June 17th. This is the last of the Three Spring Festivals, but before we explain the significance of that important event let us talk for a few minutes about the specific energies that are impacting us at this full moon. The Sun is now in the sign of Gemini, and the moon is in the opposite sign of Sagittarius. The planet Jupiter is currently in the sign of Sagittarius sitting right next to the moon at this full moon period. And Jupiter is one of the ruling signs of Sagittarius, so this month we have an abundance of these three energies to deal with. (the moon, Jupiter, and Sagittarius) In addition, the Sun is opposite these three.

  • Taurus Full Moon 2019

  • Easter Full Moon Meditation 2019

  • Full Moon Meditation in the Sign of Aries 2019

    This month the sun enters the sign of Aries on March 20th, the same day as the Spring Equinox and the full moon. So, therefore this is a most potent full moon. We also have another full moon within this same Aries/Libra cycle. The full moon occurs on April 19th, when we will celebrate the Festival of Easter. Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. Thus we are beginning a new cycle of creativity and manifestation.

  • Pisces Full Moon 2019

    This month we are invited to balance the energies of the Pisces sun with the Virgo moon. Water and earth join in an attempt to move with the fluidity of water while still keeping our feet on Mother Earth. Pisces always envisions the mystical, the highest possibility, and the ideal manifestation. Virgo says, “That’s all good, but you also live in physical reality and must obey the laws of nature.” How do you engage with the earth energies to help you manifest your Piscean visions?

  • Red Wolf Full Moon January 2019

    This lunar eclipse, occurring in the sign of Leo/Aquarius asks us to break old habits, to release the past, and to eliminate any patterns that stand in the way of our evolution.

  • Beginnings, Endings, and the January 2019 Solar Eclipse

    Eclipses always portend endings or beginnings, a birth of some sort or a death. It could be an actual death, but more likely it is a death of a way of life, or an institution or a closely held belief. Because this eclipse is in the sign of Capricorn we can expect that the ending or beginning will be around  Capricornian themes. Capricorn is an earth sign so staying grounded in physical reality will be important. Organizing your every day life is another important energy of Capricorn so this is a good time to make sure your days are organized around what is most important to you. 

  • Full Moon in the Sign of Capricorn 2018

    This month we come together to celebrate two very powerful events, the full moon in Capricorn, and the Winter Solstice. The Winter Solstice occurs on December 21st when the Sun enters the sign of Capricorn at 2:23pm (PST) The very next day we have the Cancer full moon happening at 9:48am. (PST) These two events transpiring so close to one another makes the astrological aspects even more potent.

  • Full Moon Meditation - Sagittarius 2018

    Whenever the Sun enters the sign of Sagittarius, I take a deep breath. Ahhhh,  it feels liberating and free.  After the dark underworld of Scorpio, we arise into a new dawn with vision and hope. We have cleared away whatever the darkness revealed, and we stand poised and ready to embody a higher purpose. Sagittarius offers us the opportunity to reclaim the larger perspective, the higher aspiration.
