11:11 New Moon in Scorpio

Let's start with the past week, shall we?  Almost every deep conversation I've had with clients, friends and hello - myself - has been centered around an emotional upheaval caused by "news" from the past. Letters have arrived from unexpected old loves, old behaviors have crept in on not-so-silent-tip-toe, perhaps old bills / debt has resurfaced, or a former physical injury has flared up. (The lucky of us have all of these things happening at … [Read more...]

Double Your Pleasure!

Do you remember the old Wrigley’s Double Mint gum commercials, showing twins enjoying all sorts of fun activities while chewing Double Mint gum, with the tag line of “Double your pleasure, double your fun…”? Well, this weekend offers double opportunity to express gratitude and examine your life through the lens of the Full Moon and Lammas, the halfway mark between Summer and Fall. So, I’m calling it a weekend of Double-Ups! (Check out my new … [Read more...]

Full Moon Relief

The June 2nd Full Moon in Sagittarius will feel a bit like a tall glass of something good going down – especially after all the planetary shenanigans of late. Between all the squares, oppositions, and retrogrades lately, we have collectively been called to RELEASE old patterns, limitations and goals that no longer serve or fit our life. And the harder we cling to the old ways, the more forcefully they are ripped out from underneath. In other … [Read more...]

Evolve Your Fight or Flight Response!

Last Friday night, I was experiencing day four of what turned out to be a five-day cluster migraine siege and every fiber of my body was tight, tired and clinched. When any sort of pain hits – physical, emotional, mental or spiritual – the natural response is to clinch up, feel a little short of breath and then start fighting like hell or flee as quickly as we can. And, it does not work. For three days I’d been fighting through the pain … [Read more...]

Valentine’s Full Moon!

Beginning a year, yes this year, for the first time as a “single” in more than 25 years, let’s just say I am very interested in how this Valentine’s Day will feel … especially since Valentine’s Day just happens to fall on the Full Moon in Leo! Valentine’s Day and Full Moon in Leo carry many of the same words. On the up side: fun, play, creativity, love, seduction, feelings, sensuality, and togetherness. On the downer side: expectations, instant … [Read more...]

Are You A Sentimental Sensitive?

Thanksgiving week is full of so much emotion for me. A born gratitude junkie, I LOVE stopping mid week and gathering with people to celebrate gratitude.  I also love to cook for holiday meals and it begins tonight!  (My very-requested recipe for Jack Daniels Sweet Potatoes is at the end of this missive.  You’ll thank me later!) I’m also what you might call a sentimental sensitive.  When we love, baby, we are ALL in.  Sound familiar? … [Read more...]

November Full Moon Opportunities

Full Moon in Taurus highlights tangible earthly things like your money, your body and your relationships.  Ruled by Venus, Taurus is also very drawn to the pleasurable, beautiful, feel-good things in life!  This is a great opportunity to find that fine line between savoring and over-indulgence (especially with the holidays approaching!).    But wait, there’s more! Other influences and opportunities during this full moon include Neptune going … [Read more...]

Trick or Treat?

It’s noisy out there in the world and it is noisy inside my head and heart these days.  How about you? October 31st is a sacred day to honor the dead whom we’ve loved, and honor the close of the growing season in the northern hemisphere.  And dress up as our alter ego! It is easy to feel a little like a just harvested field at this time of year – dangling roots of prior achievements mix with the not quite taken roots of incomplete projects.  … [Read more...]

Who Nurtures You?

“Who nurtures you?” is a question I ask clients regularly.  And it is the question I pose to you now.  Really.  Who nurtures you?  Does your answer sound something like, “I do.  I buy organic, eat healthy food, avoid overly processed junk food, exercise, and ask my body what it wants.”  Yep, you, my clients and I all have a similar answer to that question. I bet you try to do all that self nurturing while you are busy making a difference to … [Read more...]
