Its that magical time of year again. The air is crisp, the sweaters are cozy, everything smells of pumpkin spice, and the Halloween decorations are up. I LOVE this season! But there is much more to it than just costumes and candy. It is the perfect time to turn inward for deep inner listening and magic…View Post
This month the New Moon is in Libra and it is in exact opposition to Uranus, the Great Awakener. This new moon will shake things, break things and encourage us to breakthrough the paradigms that keep us playing too small. This process can feel destabilizing and energizing at the same time.View Post
Lately it seems that almost every week there is some new terrible event in the news that we must digest. Our minds and bodies are scrambling to make sense of it all, and the collective trauma is palpable. Amidst these struggles we have any opportunity to choose openness and transformation rather than fear and isolation.
On July 23rd, the dynamic new moon in Leo initiates us into eclipse season. On August 7th there will be a full moon and lunar eclipse in Aquarius. On August 21st, we will have a second Leo New Moon, and a Full Solar Eclipse! Eclipses come in pairs, and the space around them is a powerful vortex time of transformation during which we are presented with growth opportunities at a rapid rate.View Post

✨NEW MOON IN AQUARIUS✨🦄🌀 On Friday January 27th, the new moon in Aquarius occurs at 4:07 PM PST.

A New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of another new 28 day cycle. Sun conjunct Moon means all possibilities are on the table. You can rightly put yourself in the forefront of new plans for the future. Old habits, behaviors and beliefs can be questioned as you search for new and inventive ways to make progress. This is the ideal time to make a fresh start and write down a to-do list.
The New Moon on Friday 27 January, 2017 is at 8 degrees Aquarius. This New Moon is dominated by Venus square Saturn, which puts the spotlight on any issues you are having in your love life or with your financial situation. Take this opportunity to look closely and patiently at these matters.
This Moon is also the Lunar New Year, which is celebrated as the Chinese New Year! 2017 is The Year of Yin Red Fire Rooster.
In a Rooster Year, we can learn Rooster traits : Loyalty, commitment, hard work and family are characteristics of the year. Yin Fire expresses inner warmth and insight, and the quiet of stillness and connection. 2017 is sure to bring challenges, but balance, stability, and community will grow out of it for those who are willing to embrace change and work hard together.
From a mythical and intuitive perspective, this is the year of the Fire Bird… The Phoenix! I like the translation Phoenix, rather than rooster or chicken, because it brings opportunities for rebirth and transformation. The Phoenix is a brilliant, inspirational, and fearless visionary. The element Fire is perfect for Phoenix because Fire brings strength, passion, bravery, and leadership.
So now is the year to break free, claim your destiny, and overcome obstacles. You can heal past actions, even past lives, with your new awareness!
