This entire month, the climax of spring, is ruled by Taurus. The sun entered the Earth Goddess vibe a few weeks ago, and on Friday May 8th, the moon joins in. Taurus is a fixed sign, because she holds the power of the current season. She is deep earth, like ancient tree roots, and her worship is one of the senses. She is the reason for mantras like, “stop and smell the roses,” and Taurus asks us to pause in the busy-ness between spring and summer to enjoy the delights that abound. Wildness is on my mind, it is stirring in my soul and my body, and is eager to play. After all, it is Beltane, and I have always associated this ritual with naked pagans running around the fire, making love in the grass, laughing and singing. This does occur at many a Beltane gathering, and may it continue every year! But the truth is, wildness is not always what we think it is.Read More
In this video and article, I share several symptoms (from my life and the lives of my clients) that are related to a deficient first chakra (8 in the video + two more in the article, for a total of 10). For me, once I clearly saw that I had a root energy issue, I was able to dedicate myself to the healing practices I needed. So, read this and see if you need to start dedicating yourself to booting your root chakra.Read More
Thursday’s full moon is considered “lunar Beltane” by those that celebrate the wheel of the year. Beltane is the mid point between spring equinox and summer solstice. It is a juicy, fertile, delicious moment. It is also ripe for revelation, became we are so open to receive. Just because it is Scorpio does not mean what is revealed has to “bad.” Scorpio can just as easily show us how to better live in truth or how to step into our power. We might be surprised how much we repress our hopes, as well as our fears.Read More
The fire carried by this sign is the fire that keeps life going, the heat that evolution is made of. This season brings miracles like flowers from buds, babies from eggs, butterflies from cocoons. One moment a tree is bare, the next it is in full blossom. It’s like magic.
When focused and aligned with spiritual or higher purpose, the Aries new moon can be magic. It can be the moment we have been waiting for to transform our lives, to take the next step (or leap), and to awaken our true power.Read More
I fell this week… hard. And it wasn’t pretty. In fact, if someone had recorded it with their phone camera, I’m pretty sure it would now be on youtube racking up the views (for a good laugh). I was on the gym treadmill walking briskly with a 12 lb. weight in each hand (being the fiery 3rd chakra girl that I am), when I tripped and…Read More
We talk a lot about self-love, but talk does nothing. If we are in a relationship where someone says they love us, but then their actions don’t show that love, we don’t feel loved. Our body just doesn’t get it. The same is true for self-love. In order for it to be healing and nurturing, self-love needs to be fully embodied. We need to feel it. With that in mind, here are four simple ways that you can make your self-love tangible, embodied and very real.Read More
“With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child.” This is the line that echoed in my head this morning as I sat outside with my son. We have been home resting for a few days, under the weather yet again. I was moodily musing that we have spent more time down than up since winter solstice and how eagerly I am awaiting the official awakening of spring for hopefully a healthier season.Read More
