Full Supermoon in Libra on the Spring Equinox: Bringing Balance into Bloom

This full moon so much more than a full moon- it is a journey. This full moon is a path in the middle of the woods that you walk as the rain comes down to clear the frost. This full moon is an insight into your life as it is, and your life as you want it to be. So buckle up and breathe.

So much has happened in the month of March, already, thus far, and this full supermoon in Libra coinciding with the Vernal Equinox (or Autumnal Equinox, if you’re in the southern hemisphere) on 20 March is only bringing everything to a new, sublime height. (Keep Reading…)

Planetary Shifts: Slow Down, Speak Up, Listen Inwards, and Get Comfy

The planet of travel, adventure, and our inner "crazy", Uranus, only moves signs every 7-9 years, and it is moving into the sign of Taurus next week! This is HUGE in terms of our inter AND interpersonal relations for the next 3/4's of a decade.

This shift is happening only 2 weeks after Chiron- the asteroid that rules our inner "wounded healer"- has moved signs, and within days of numerological portal day 3-3-3, the new moon in Pisces, and Mercury's first retrograde cycle of 2019 (which is also in the sign of Pisces)! All of these shifts are happening at the same time for a reason: It is time to hunker down, sink into our intuitions, our voices, and our truths, and cement them into the earth to become manifest.

Aries Full Moon, Autumnal Equinox, and Planets a-Shiftin’: Spinning into Balance, Passion, Speaking Truth, and New Beginnings

This Aries full moon is arriving just after the Autumnal Equinox, amidst the crazy movements of all of these retrograde planets going direct. This is a time for imbalance turning to balance, for numbness and dissociation to turn into passion and motivation, for the mundane to turn into magic as we begin to turn into ourselves to prepare for hibernation and inner growth and integration.

Full Moon in Pisces August 2018:Weeping for Your Inner Child

This full moon is really, truly, about weeping for yourself. It is about holding yourself in a warm embrace (perhaps with loads of tissues) as you feel all of the emotions surrounding the Big Work that you have been doing through the spring and summer of this year, and perhaps long before that. It is about the big sob. The understanding that it’s okay to cry, and it’s okay to cry for yourself and what you have been through as a human being in this lifetime (and, possibly, in other lifetimes!). It is okay, and it will be okay.

Full Moon in Libra

When I first started learning astrology when I was 11, Libra was always one of the signs I would get confused about. It confused me that it was an air sign, rather than an earth sign.

Balance has seemed like such an earthly thing to me from that point until just recently, when it has been made very apparent as to why Libra is an air sign…

December: Supermoon in Gemini, Mercury Retro, and More!

Happy December!

Oof does this month get interesting. In a great way. Time to do the Big Work, folks.

Firstly, today, 1 December 2017, Venus enters Sagittarius. This will give us room to breathe and let our passion take us wherever it wants to instead of being in the throws of the intensity that was Venus in Scorpio. So… good news: Venus in Sag makes way for us to have fun in our love life, creative passions, and our relationship with ourselves. Roam free and let the fire in your heart warm you from the inside out! …

6 September 2017 Full Moon (Plus, Mercury goes direct and Neptune Retrograde)

The moon rose high in the sky in a burnt orange hue, last evening. Fall appears to be nearing. The mystery of the moon seems to grow somehow more mysterious at this time of the year. A glow came over my heart at the thought of brisk night walks through the woods, cool earth beneath my feet through the day, and a special permission from nature to turn within a little longer, and a little more often.

This month, the Harvest Moon appears full in the sign of Pisces, giving us the perfect floating current from summer into fall (fire into water), and the grace to sink into the emotions from whatever the fiery new moon and solar eclipse in Leo brought up for us. This full moon is the time to immerse ourselves in reflection and direction. It is time to flow.

My Total Solar Eclipse Experience, Part II

I was starting to smile more and more as we set up camp. "What?" Chris asked. "You don't even understand what you did, just now, finding that honeysuckle," I looked at him with grateful eyes. "What? What do you mean?" At that moment I felt the urgency hit me- I really needed to pee. "I'll tell you as soon as I get back from the bathroom." 

The bathroom was a couple minute walk away, and again I felt my eyes roll as I was thinking about how stupid it was to be camping and not be allowed to pee in the woods, and then the image of the honeysuckle buzzed into my mind. Rachel. I thought to myself. Get a hold of yourself. All of this is happening for a reason. You are human, and it's okay if you allow yourself to get frustrated and feel anger and fear and disappointment for a while, but it's not okay to get stuck in it. You've had your moment. You've gotten the sign to help dig you back up and out. Now use it, and move on. Look for the actual reason: Why are you really here? …

My Total Solar Eclipse Experience, Part I

It was Thursday evening of last week that I went out for a walk through my favourite wooded trail in Grand Rapids. I was going at a pretty nice clip but having to keep an eye on the ground at the path, as there was a lot of overgrowth that I was needed to wade through. I suddenly felt the need to stop and look up- something was calling for my attention. I turned next to me, and there was the most beautiful honeysuckle plant. I thanked it for its beauty and for helping me to stop and appreciate it, and then I kept walking forward, but the feeling didn't stop.

I stopped dead in my tracks, turned around, again, and walked back to the bush. I clearly heard it say, "Take this. It is my gift to you," and my eye went straight to one of the flowers. I was so grateful. I picked it and thanked the plant and was about to go on my way, again, when it said, "No, you get one more," so I picked the next one it brought my eye to, thanked the plant one last time, and went on my way. As I was walking I got the clear feeling that I needed to make a flower essence with it, and the eclipse was only a few days away- it was perfect. I wasn't sure how I would go about making a lot of it with only two flowers, but I knew it would work itself out- I would bring them with me in a jar on the ride to Kentucky…

11 April 2017 Full Moon, End of Venus Retrograde, the Beginning of Saturn Retrograde, the Beginning of Mercury Retrograde, and Understanding Portal Days

With Mercury, Saturn and Venus in retrograde at the same time, what we are doing is looking at our patterns, facing our lessons, facing our selves, questioning what we really want out of life, discarding things that are not serving us, and having to put forth more effort into communicating with each other. The full moon in Libra falling on the 11th will illuminate all of this and help to bring it to a pinnacle where you can really vacillate with freedom between your choices before collaborating with your higher self, your inner knowing, and any astral friends (or guides or whatever you might have helping you on the other side of the veil) to make any important judgments or decisions you might need to make in order to move forward in the most direct and pleasing way on your path….

When Mr.Mercury Comes to Visit and Goes Retro.. Plus, a Tidbit on the New Moon in Capricorn

So, some of us can only laugh at this point. After everything else the planets have done this year, Mercury decided to end 2016 with a bang. The planet Mercury started retrograde last week on 19 December 2016, and will not go direct until 8 January 2017. And what better timing? Mercury in retrograde has marched through to trudge that last bit of hidden darkness up into the open light so that we will bring the year 2016 out with a brilliant close, and the new year of 2017 will fizzle in under that same brilliance.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, Mercury Retrograde is when gravity affects the rotation of the planet Mercury in relation to the planet earth. The pull makes it so that Mercury’s rotation “slows down”, (at least from our point of view on earth,) and thus makes it look and feel as though it is going backwards in rotation behind earth around the sun for a few weeks. Because the planet Mercury affects both technology and communication, the effects of its retrograde are that we can experience lots of miscommunications with people (which make it real fun during the holidays with family and friends, doesn’t it??) and difficulties or breakdowns in technology, i.e. car troubles, phone whacking out, water spilled on laptop, internet outages, etc….

How Our Country and Our World Came to THIS, and How We Can Rise Up

Now is our time. 

Our time to shine.

Our time to step up and share who we are- as individuals, as psychics, as healers, as lovers- with the world.

Our country and our world have flipped to the shadow side. Perhaps that is why Brexit happened. Perhaps that is why Isis is happening. Perhaps that is why Trump was voted into office. The world is turning and churning, the scales of darkness and light flipping back and forth and on top of themselves and rolling around like maggots in a treehouse.

Many people are scared right now, and that is okay. I, myself, was very fearful yesterday and the day before, and even a little bit today. But now, I am excited- let me tell you why….
