When the New Moon is in Virgo, we can initiate new pathways in our lives to craft systems that allow us to live from a place of greater refinement and organization. As Virgo is dedicated to helping and healing, we could also find that what is being initiated is a deeper level of understanding as to how we can be of service to others.Read More
The Pisces Full Moon can be an auspicious time for healing. We have at our disposal the ability to connect to the body (via earthy Virgo, the sign in which the Sun resides) and our intuition (via sensitive Pisces, the sign in which the Moon resides). If your health has been less than abundant, or you’re just looking to feel even more vital, taking the time to focus on how to enhance your wellness during this Full Moon may prove very productive.Read More

Many people have a go-to Mercury Retrograde Action Plan: they back up their computers, change the car oil, leave extra time to get from place A to place B, and commit to communicating as clearly as possible.
And yet, even with all their thoughtful tech, transport, and correspondence approaches, they still find themselves feeling a bit frazzled and on edge.
With another week-plus of the current Mercury Retrograde (the planet of communication shifts direct on September 5), I thought to share some strategies to add to your self-care arsenal.Read More
When you envision your life, what do you desire to see on the horizon?
And as you hold your vision towards those goals, consider what you need to put into place so that your vision can have a greater chance of manifesting:
* What resources do you need?
* What commitments do you need to shore up?
* What foundations do you need to build?
This month’s New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse. Even if we can’t see an Eclipse in the sky where we live, these celestial events are renowned for being very powerful in the way in which they can impact our lives. Oftentimes, life-changing events or reflections occur around the time of an Eclipse. Yet, remember that reflective of the word itself, things are often “eclipsed” around the time of these lunations. As such, you may find yourself feeling like there is a sea change in your life, that seeds are being planted, yet not clear what it will be that will bear fruit. That clarity may become greater as weeks and months pass; and so, if you’re not yet clear what it is that is being given form, that may be just as it should be.Read More
With the Venus/Pluto Opposition + Venus/Jupiter Square, it’s a week of assessing value, of contemplating beauty, of discovering the richness of life. The path of doing so isn’t necessarily pretty, urging us to connect to a naked honesty, encouraging us to see the ugliness that circulate within us personally and collectively. And yet it’s through the acknowledgement of our shadow, and a tenacious commitment to compassion, that we are able to journey to a deeper level of humanity and unearth a love that touches something within us oft buried and yet which is our thread to all our brothers and sisters.Read More
Given that Lunar Eclipses are Full Moons, things may seem as if they are coming to fruition as we may be sensing that we are experiencing the outcome of steps previously taken. Even if we can’t see a Lunar Eclipse in the sky, these celestial events are potent harbingers of illumination in our lives. Often, weeks before and after Eclipses, life-shifting feelings, reflections, events, and people come into our lives.Read More
Are you feeling the heat? With today's Sun/Mars conjunction we may find ourselves galvanized into action, ready to be a warrior for a cause that speaks directly to our heart. What stokes your passion? What has you lit up? What do you want to fight for?
Yet, watch for flames burning beyond bounds and inflammation that can be irritating. Be conscious in the pursuit of desires, trying to take it slower than the pull towards impatience may be heralding. Watch that impetuousness doesn't lead to accidents or anger to outcomes you will regrets when the fiery call to action subsides.
During the Leo New Moon, we have the opportunity to shine and to radiate the love that is inherent in our hearts. There’s an ebullient child-like energy that draws forth the playful and creative self that resides within. Yet, while there’s great encouragement to express oneself, it’s not always done so in a no-holds-barred way; care and thoughtfulness is important since, after all, Leo is the sign of dignity and self-respect.Read More
