MoonDay Musings: Don’t Push the River

This lunar month we began with a new theme — Unfold / Refold your Self, inspired by the qualities of Cancer’s water element — agile and freely flowing like water. As I was writing about the theme for this blog and my newsletter, something was bubbling underneath, an inchoate memory of a phase about water…… Continue reading MoonDay Musings: Don’t Push the River

Regain your footing with the Full Moon in Capricorn

This is a significant full moon in so many ways — actually, aren't they all?! — especially as it peaks within the energy of the June 20-21 solstice. I don’t know how this energy is manifesting for you, but for me, well, I’ve been feeling rather frazzled! Others I know have had similar experiences.

This combination is an energetic powerhouse and a catalyst for transformation, perhaps revealing what has been obscured or overlooked in our lives.

Begin a new adventure with the Sagittarius Full Moon and Eclipse

We began this lunar month with the New Moon in Gemini, a theme of communing, an invitation to share one's intimate thoughts or feelings with someone (or something) — especially on a spiritual level and even non-verbal level — and to harness that Gemini sociability and let it work for us in whatever way that… Continue reading Begin a new adventure with the Sagittarius Full Moon and Eclipse

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
