The Journey

“One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
“Mend my life!”
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind pried
with its stiff fingers
at the very foundations,
though their melancholy
was terrible.
It was already late
enough, and a wild night,
and the road full of fallen
branches and stones.
But little by little,
as you left their voice behind,
the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own,
that kept you company
as you strode deeper and deeper
into the world,
determined to do
the only thing you could do —
determined to save
the only life that you could save.”

Full Moon of Balance

Full moon in airy Libra, the champion of balance and fairness and equality.

Where are you out of balance with your true self?

What small steps can you take towards alignment and balance? What can you shed from your life? What can you add?

Who or what can help you create more balance?

Magical Full Moon in Gemini

Wild full moon in Gemini, the shape shifting, trickster fairy.

The fire of a Sagittarius Sun continues to burn bright and hot, fueled by the air of a Gemini Moon. But what will we do with all this fiery, transformative energy?

During the holidays, old hurts and pain tend to knock at our door. We can use all this fiery energy to fuel old hurts and resentments. That painful dance is a tradition as old as Yule.

Or… we can choose something new this year; We can choose to drop our old stories and use the fire to create a magical new tradition for ourselves.

We can love and honor ourselves and our needs. And when we’ve filled ourselves up with love, it will spill out of us and spread into the world, blessing everyone around us.

We can use the magic of Moonlight and Fire to turn this time into a season of love. Or not. It’s our choice.

Flaming New Moon and Eclipse

New moon and total solar eclipse in fiery Sagittarius, the seeker of spiritual truth.

This solar eclipse will only be visible tonight for a few minutes in Antarctica and the southern edges of South America and Australia. But don’t kid yourself; every eclipse delivers an energetic wallop to the entire planet.

And this eclipse event in Sagittarius has a signature energy that I can only describe as…

FLAME ON!!

We are receiving a turbo-charged download of transformative energies. And it’s positive, life affirming, passionate energies this time.

So, the only question is, where in your life do you need a turbo boost?

Where are you aching to make a dramatic shift? Focus there. Now is the time for positive, creative, joyful action. Even a tiny baby step is better than no action at all.

Stop debating.
No more whining.
Go For It.
Act now.

Justice Weeps

The ancient Goddess of Justice is weeping over the Bill Cosby case.

She reminds us that a legal system created and controlled by the patriarchy is not capable of dispensing JUSTiCE for all.

The rage of women is palpable in the air. The only question is… what will women decide to do with their rage?

Potent New Moon and Eclipse

New moon and solar eclipse in airy, shape shifting, trickster Gemini.

Eclipses are said to amplify our thoughts and intentions a hundredfold or more. Both positive and negative thoughts are amplified. So, why not harness that power?

Take time to think about what you REALLY want.
What do you want to amplify in your life?
What do you want more of?
What nurtures you?
What do you need to grow and bloom?

Focus on what feeds your body-mind and spirit. What will it look like, taste like, feel like when you get what you desire?
