November Full Moon in Gemini: Bringing Truth to Illusion

What are you wearing- your crown, or your mask? What are other people showing you? That is what this Gemini full moon is about: Are you hiding behind illusion, or are you living and attracting your highest truth?

Full Moon in Taurus: Illuminating Relationships and Psychic Senses

As we near the end of October, the veil between our physical world and the psychic world tends to thin. The full moon closest to this time tends to illuminate that experience, as the full moon- which is in charge of psychic energy- and the sign of Taurus- which is arguably the most earth-centred of earth signs- blend together to remind us what we are made of; what we can access; who we are, as humans: a distinct mix of the two.

Additionally, Taurus is the sign that rules the planet Venus, which is currently retrograde. And boy- does this make for a GREAT dynamic!

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.

Owning Yourself: New Moon Supermoon and Solar Eclipse in Leo with Perseid Meteor Shower

What a week! Holy cow… these energies have me roaring! Wait… that’s not the sound a cow makes. But still.

We started this week out with another planet gone retro. Uranus Retrograde began on Tuesday the 7th, so it’s not a wonder if you’ve been feeling like a home-body. I, myself, was bogged down in bed with a terrible cold… oh yea. I wasn’t going anywhere. Those planets were like, “Going back to work? Hahaha! NOT!” Just remember that retrograde planets are only inconvenient if you let them be an inconvenience. Really, they are an invitation to slow down and breathe… something that, yes, may very well feel like an “inconvenience” in our new-world, fast-paced, go-go-go society, but that is, in fact, a blessing…

The Underbelly of Communication: July's Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius

Run away, and don’t look back.

No, don’t actually, but…

You will want to. You will want to feel like you are very far away, just like the full moon will be from the earth on Friday, 27 July. It is because of this that you may find it a bit more difficult to come in tune into daily life, and you may find yourself daydreaming or resenting the need to be present in your daily dealings….

New Supermoon and Solar Eclipse: New Perspective, and Confronting Emotion

It’s odd, when the Universe tips things on their heads. I normally don’t write articles for new moons- article for Full Moon, guided meditation on YouTube for New Moon. But in this case, I felt it important. Why? Because this New Moon is going to act like a Full Moon.

In my last article, I stated that I regretted not posting an article for last month’s new moon in Gemini. This is why…

Full Moon in Capricorn (28 June 2018)

The horns have been blown, and you are being called to the top of your mountain.

Lots of intricacies are wrapped in the throes of this full moon, which falls in the sign of Capricorn. This full moon falls amidst a large retrograde season (read more about that here and here), and just before eclipse season (read about that here). The energies are potent, and it’s possible that you may feel challenged and/or bogged down at this point in life….

BIG Planetary Shifts!

That shadow work keeps getting deeper and deeper, folks!

So you may remember the article I published in April, talking about Saturn, Pluto, and Mercury retrograde, and the article that I published shortly thereafter about Jupiter retrograde.

Whelp… now that we’re pretty acclimated to those shifts, new ones are coming in, and, in fact, have already begun. We have two things going on: 1) Major planetary shifts, and 2) Big things going on with the sun and moon.

Endless Opportunity: Full Moon in Sagittarius

The fire within is growing wild; untamed. Now is the time. Your greatest deepest passions and purpose are unleashing- you have no excuse with which to quell them. And Universe will continue to remind you of that. You will be presented with endless endeavours that will support you on your path; the clearing is bright and paved, and the sun- and your inner burning- light and lead the way…

What on Earth is Going on In our Skies Right Now? (Full Moon in Scorpio and other things)

Okay, so, the full moon in Scorpio is happening on Sunday the 29th, and that’s a big deal. But really, it’s an even bigger deal because of the timing of everything else going on around it to enhance its energies- so let’s dive deep!

About this time last year, I couldn’t help but publish one of these suckers, as well. That is because the astrological skies have decided that April is the month to start working on ourselves, last year, and now, this year. It makes sense that Universe would be choosing the month of April to throw our Big Work at us….

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…

Full Moon in Virgo

On 1 March 2018, the moon grows full in the sign of Virgo at 11 degrees. There is no way the conscious efforts of this moon were not deliberate.

To recap: We started out this year- 2018, which adds to 11 and is therefore considered to be a 'portal year' with a Blue Supermoon at 11 degrees on the first day of January. The 11 year is a portal. The date, 1-1, is a portal. The degree of sign in which the moon positioned itself, 11, was a portal. And lastly, thinking of a blue moon- having two full moons in one month- as a bookend- is a portal. We start with high raised energy, work our shadows out in the middle, and then rise up again…

Full Super Blue Blood Moon

Jitter in your skin and let the past become present as time ceases to exist and everything you’ve ever been is thrown in your face. It’s only once in this blue moon that we are thrown between reflective bookends to learn the truth in our stories.

This moon is speaking loud and clear, forcing us to look at the light shining off the palms of our hands- the glow of our own energy- and say, “Who am I, really? What experiences am I made of? What is this true and real power that I hold in my palm? …and do I dare to create with it?”…

2018 Astrology and Numerology: Doorways, Justice, Manifestation, and Grounding

Doorways, doorways, doorways- that is what we’re about here, isn’t it? And it’s what this year is about, too! The numerological vibration of this year is an 11 (2+0+1+8= 11), which is the number of the Master Doorway.

This is a year of new opportunities, making connections, travel (whether physically or astrally through the spirit realms), building career or lifestyle, manifestation, attuning to your psychic self, and meeting your Higher Self to hear it loud and clear. This is the year you can connect with the stars; that you can see into time dimension slips and other lifetimes. Your senses might already be tingling with excitement. Perhaps you’ve been seeing lots of repeating numbers on clocks and license plates lately, as well….

Full 1-1 Portal Supermoon in Cancer

I cannot even begin to describe how incredible it is that this moon falls on the first of this year. Not only is it on 1/1, making it a portal day in and of itself (11 looks like a doorway and is the master doorway number in numerology), but it is the first day of an 11 year (2+0+1+8= 11). That makes this moon a 1111 full moon, starting out 2018 with a bang: Ultimate psychic connection, easy synching with astral realms, prime manifestation time, and connection with Higher Self and second-sight awakenings like you may never have felt it, before…

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! …

So what is this thing that we call Saturn…

Those of you who have worked with me one-on-one are used to me asking you if you have reached the beautiful age of somewhere between 27-30, yet. That’s because every 27-29.5 years Saturn returns to the same astrological sign in the night sky that it was in when you were born.

This is what we wyrdos call a “Saturn Return”. Saturn is the sternest planet of them all, asking us to level up and see if we have learned all of the lessons that we’ve needed to learn; if we’ve truly faced ourselves, or even if we’ve truly seen ourselves, at all! It asks us to find the deepest, purest, essence of our energy and bring it to the surface….
