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...]

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...]

Virgo New Moon Advantage

I did a little shopping.  OK.  I did a lot more than a little shopping when I was hanging out in Texas with my mom last week.  I came home with an additional suitcase (LOVE Southwest Airline’s baggage policy!) filled with all kinds of things from new clothes to a nifty spice rack with wood spice containers from the 1950’s that match a canister I have of my grandmother’s.  The Virgo Advantage Usually, I do the chore of unpacking in a hurry.  … [Read more...]

Truth AND Dare

It seems almost every conversation I have these days, starts with, “What the heck is (fill in the blank here with your own head scratcher of a question),” and winds up in giggles and belly laughs.  I’ve received half a dozen links to articles or videos talking about the health benefits of laughing, and read articles about the same in as many health journals and magazines in the past month alone! This is very good news.  Especially in this era … [Read more...]

July’s Full Moon Feistiness!

I love a good whirl through Full Moon in Aquarius.  As antsy as I feel in the lead-up, the pay-off is significant when I work WITH the energy rather than fight, ignore or forget to channel this potent flow of energy. The Opportunity of Full Moon in Aquarius is to make a significant and bold shift toward more personal freedom and expression of your individuality … the missed opportunity can leave you feeling frustrated and misunderstood like … [Read more...]

Are You There Yet?

“Are we there yet?” is that oft asked question at this time of year, usually from the backseat of a car by a child under the age of twelve. I’m well over the age of twelve but can very easily find myself in the impatience of a twelve year old.  Rather than being tired of the backseat of a car, I’m impatient to see results and feel the achievement of goals set at the beginning of the year … like the launch of my new program, Your Body’s $uccess … [Read more...]

Bigger Than Life Commitment

Most of you know I’m from Texas.  Last night, Wendy Davis, a sister Texan and Modern Goddess demonstrated a particular brand of courage and bigger than life commitment.  She successfully filibustered the Texas senate for THIRTEEN HOURS to prevent a sure-thing disastrous vote on the draconian bill that would have closed 37 of 42 women’s clinics and further eroded Roe v Wade in Texas. During the filibuster, she could not take a sip of water, sit … [Read more...]
