Reclaiming Friday the 13th

Friday the 13th and a Full Moon? WOW, there are so many posts about this, the "unlucky" energies, what to watch out for. But, to be honest, Friday the 13th is not something I normally notice but its conjunction with the Full Harvest Moon has raised the awareness of many people. I’ve never aligned with the… Continue reading Reclaiming Friday the 13th

MoonDay Musings: Processing change and release

Personal change can be both rewarding and tumultuous... and not just because of the process itself, but because of the emotions associated with the change. Change in the world around us — natural, social, political — can also be chaotic and unsettling, even when it is positive change.
