MoonDay Musings: Tree Allies

Guides and allies are revealed to us in different ways and in many forms. Amongst my allies are spirits, ancestors, stones, animals, plants and trees. One of my teachers connected to a mountain for guidance.  I often find guidance in my relationship with trees, which some indigenous folks call the Standing People. I am fortunate… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Tree Allies

Celebrate your Self on Valentine’s Day

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day?  Some see this holiday as a purely commercial event, a “Hallmark moment”, focusing only on romantic love and partnerships, flowers and chocolate, and candlelit dinners. For some that will be a challenge in 2021, due to all that is happening with the pandemic.  But for me, I look at Valentine's… Continue reading Celebrate your Self on Valentine’s Day

12 Omens for 2021: February

Soul-stice Season and Winter’s Cloak

This year —  more than any recent year — I so need this soul-stice time of reflection and renewal, my “cauldron time”. Much is still churning within me. I am restless, questioning my beliefs and practices, finding new paths.   I often find inspiration in poetry and found one, “Winter’s Cloak” (co-written by Joyce Rupp… Continue reading Soul-stice Season and Winter’s Cloak

What’s your 2021 Word of the Year?

My 2021 word of the year Some of us choose a “word for the year” as we approach a new calendar year, and we each have our own process or ritual for finding it. For some, this is a long and deliberate process. For others, the word arrives spontaneously … popping into one’s consciousness with… Continue reading What’s your 2021 Word of the Year?
