Spring Equinox 2018: Wisdom


Greetings beloveds,

The new astrological and seasonal year begins with an air of wisdom and clarity. Universally we have been in the dark. Moving from light to shadow, day to night maintaining that there is a clear line between good and evil. Now as the son/sun rises from the underworld what was done in the dark comes to light. We see that nothing is all good or all bad. Specifically, we are not all good or bad. This wisdom comes in the form of the crone, a wise woman, or a witch. She is the embodiment of winter. A time when we travel within to explore the depths of our psyche to find the truth of who we are. We are seasoned, having learned from experience and finding connection to the larger part of ourselves that truth is complicated.

This spring we will begin to feel the fog lift, burned away by the rays of the morning sun. We are awake after a long period of living in a dream. Now we begin to try to make sense of our newfound knowledge. To do so we must reconcile our fractured selves through personal healing. Once that has begun, our communities can begin to heal. Bringing us to the close of this season: a choice.


This April we are given an opportunity to heal. Our pain does not have to shape our lives. We can grow from what we have experienced if we are willing to view ourselves from a different angle. Use the wisdom you have gained, seek an elder to guide you, or find a group which can relate/support you that will bolster your ability to clearly identify and heal. Healing does not mean forgetting what has occurred it means being able to be present and write a new story. When we have not healed our previous stories define us. They affect how we react to others and ourselves creating a cycle of repeating experiences. Healing for many is never achieved. The impact of their experiences has become integrated into their being. Explore those parts of yourself and accept them. Allow yourself to recognize what you can and cannot change. Then move forward wisely. With spring comes the energy of joy and celebration. Be open to this energy. Let it inspire you. Be whole, be you, be reborn.


As above, so below. As within, so without. What happens internally is reflected by our external lives and vice versa. When we heal ourselves, we heal our communities. Come together with those near and far for celebration and growth. Whether it’s spending time with your family or hanging out with strangers who share a hobby of yours, our communities fluctuate and change depending on where we are in our lives. Create, find, or continue to contribute to groups that sustain you. We are stronger together.


From May 19th to the full moon in Sagittarius on May 29th we will be experiencing a highlight of our relationships to our home (now and at birth), how we think about our connections, how we heal from our soul injuries, a desire to be of service, difficulty in finding out path to our purpose, and WAY too much time on our hands to figure it all out. This can be a blessing and a curse as we want to know that we are on the right path. This is a time with Jupiter, Saturn, Pluto, and Neptune moving into reverse for us to slow all the way down. To carefully think through the choices that present themselves. We will have choices. You always have a choice, yet our circumstances can sometimes make us feel like we do not have the ability to choose. Are you worried about letting your family and loved ones down? Of disappointing yourself by making the wrong choice. Perhaps you are terrified that this will be everything you have always wanted. Regardless, take your time, use this moment to enforce and build your connection to spirit. If you are afraid it’s ok, but do not let this fear distract or divert you. Lean on the commitment that you made to yourself and the community that has risen around you. You are stronger than you think. Above all else, have fun!! Life is mean to be enjoyed although Saturn in Capricorn will try to convince you that without sacrifice and pain you will not succeed. Think bigger. Think beyond these this last year and the next. Saturn maybe all about restriction but Jupiter is here to expand us past our limitation by embracing our shadow. If you find that you are feeling resistant now your shadow holds the light out of the darkness of confusion. Listen to it.

We got this!

The Divine Feminine Connection: The Earth


Greetings beloveds,

Today we will discuss seven easy ways to connect to the Divine Feminine through the element of Earth.

  1. Spend time in nature. During the winter, the manifestations of life are created to come forth during the rest of the year.
  2. Study seed growth cycles to better understand the cycle of growth during the winter. The warm earth combined with the moisture of the soil interacts with the needs of the seed to slowly pull the life from within its cocoon. Continuing to hold it in the safety of its warmth, the Earth nurtures that life until the world above it has shifted to provide enough warmth above the soil.
  3. Learn to honor the Earth as a provider of life. During the colder months, this is one way to access the feminine and to understand how she functions, loves, manifests, and creates change.
  4. Visit local parks, recreation areas, or even your own yard.
  5. Decorate your altar and home with items such as stones, crystals, branches from the ground, flowers, leaves or other items.
  6. Pick stones associated with the earth to carry with you in your pockets or bra 😉

Here are some stones associated with the Earth: smoky quartz, brown tourmaline, tiger’s eye, citrine, Lead, emerald, aventurine, pyrites, coal, onyx

  1. Meditate on the energy of the Earth by focusing on specific locations or your personal energetic connection.



New Moon in Pisces: The Dream of the Ram and the Goat

March Planetary Placements.png

Let’s talk about the energy of this time with a run-down of the current astrological placements.

March 6 Venus and Mercury in Aries

March 8 Jupiter Retrograde

March 14 Jupiter semi-square Saturn

March 17 New moon in Pisces; Mars enter Capricorn

March 30 Sun enters Aries

March 22 Mercury Retrograde in Aries

What does all this mean? That we are ramping up the energy. It is gearing up towards go time. There was no full moon in February making this our time for closing out what we started last year. Reflect on what occurred for you in 2017 during the Pisces full moon. What were you experiencing? Pisces represents the completion of the astrological year with the journey of the hero/heroine moving from birth (Aries) to death (Scorpio) to rebirth (Aries).

I’m just going to say it, the energy of this new moon in Pisces is going be intense. We have Venus, Mercury, and the Sun in Aries. We are being straightforward, adventurous, and headstrong in approaching our desires, communication, and sense of self. We are feeling powerful and wanting to give life to the seeds that we have planted in our subconscious of who we are, who we want to be, and how to get there. Jupiter, which is in the sign of Scorpio, goes retrograde and on March 14 forms a semi-square to Saturn in Capricorn. Jupiter in retrograde calls for us to look carefully before we leap. There is so much we want to explore and experience. Moving forward without the proper foundation lessons our ability to anticipate what the outcome of our work may be. You can make that leap and you might fly, fall, find that the ground rises up to support your next steps or travel to a new reality altogether. Jupiter in retrograde suggests blocks to our expansion, luck, and freedom. This energy will be intensified by Jupiter’s aspect to Saturn. The planet of expansion meets the planet of restriction causing a friction of epic challenges.

Jupiter in Scorpio wants us to go deeper into our subconscious. Scour the depths of our soul to find all the pieces that we have lost trying to fit into the ideals of the world around us. With Jupiter in Scorpio we want to know more, be more, do more. No more secrets. Saturn, on the other hand wants boundaries. The dark unknown is makes Saturn uneasy because there is no way to predict or control what happens there. The underworld, our subconscious is unrestrained by the limitations of our minds ability to categorize the world around us. Capricorn sees the world around us as is. Creativity is limited by the that which already exists. Because Capricorn has survived the hardships of the world, it accepts that there is necessary suffering. That we build our strength through hard work and perseverance. Jupiter semi-square Saturn is the growing plant breaking free from it’s seeds shell. Eventually the pressure to expand becomes too much. Do you break free, give up, rationalize that you were meant to stay small, find a crack and release what you can?

Pisces New Moon.png

The new moon in Pisces shines the spotlight on our fears and anxiety about our ability to be our true self in a world that wants us to conform. Dedicate yourself to your passions, dreams, and truth. For me that is accepting that I do not view the world like everyone else. That I interpret information and energy differently. I am weird. I am strange. I do not need to change anything about who I am to please others. Those are my truths in the depths of my Piscean dream world. The ram is about to meet the goat. Find your similarities but do not let the goat push you around. Accept the goats challenge to examine the strength of your plans. Once you are sure of yourself, break free and use the energy of the upcoming new moon in Aries to hold your ground.

With love


A Wrinkle in Time: Movie Analysis and Discussion

A Wrinkle in time Non-spoiler Movie Review,

Greetings beloveds,

Today I gave my self a treat and went to see the new A Wrinkle in Time movie directed by Ava DuVernay. First, I would like to clarify that this was one of the books that I would read over and over again on as a child. I loved the story, the characters, the overall message of the book. So this review comes from a place love.

I liked the movie. It was fun, entertaining, and stayed mostly true to the message of the book. The main character is Meg Murray a young girl attempting to cope with the disappearance of her father 4 years earlier. Meg is in that awkward teen stage which is only amplified by her insecurities about her worth associated with her missing father. Meg’s younger adopted brother Charles Wallace, offers her some comfort as he spends time reassuring her of her value and beauty, reminding her that their mother was the same way and she grew up to be beautiful. One evening the Murray family is visited by a strange woman named Mrs. Whatsit. Their mother, Kate Murray eventually gets Mrs. Whatsit to leave after Charles Wallace admits to having met her before as she was stealing their sheets. This is the beginning of their adventure which I will share more of in the spoiler review.

As you can tell this movie moves quickly. A bit too quickly for my taste. I must assume that the viewer is supposed to have read the book before seeing the movie. Without that background there are several scenes, bits of dialogue, and character actions that are left unexplained UNLESS you’ve read the book. For example, there is a scene in the beginning where Charles Wallace is downstairs during a stormy night and makes Meg warm milk with sandwiches before she actually comes downstairs. The movie presents this as his being a bit precocious and as a sign of how much he cares for his sister, There is a more important reference to his role in the book that is not covered much in the film. This could have been fleshed out in the film but it seemed that with all that needed to be covered that a lot of plot points from the book were left out or simply inferred.

Visually the film is stunning. It seems that this is a reoccurring theme with ok story telling but beautiful cinematography. It is lovely watching everyone explore a world that is not restrained by our limited understanding of what is possible. With that being said, there was not a lot of depth to the story line. A lot of the elements that made the book so powerful were watered down or completely left out of the film. This left the film with a bit of a hollow ring to it. Enjoyable but not long lasting.

If you would like to hear my thoughts on the film check out my non-spoiler A Wrinkle in Time Review here:
