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...]

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...]

Harvest Moon Gifts

Can you here the refrain from Neil Young’s “Harvest Moon” playing in your head? The opening verse holds some of the energy of this Pisces Harvest Moon on Thursday, September 19. “Come a little bit closerHear what I have to sayJust like children sleepin’We could dream this night away.”  Dream or Illusion? Pisces energy can feel a little dreamy or sleepy and draw us into the deep slumber of illusion.  The catch?  Neptune is retrograde right now … [Read more...]

SuperMoon, Super YOU & Solstice!

I admit, I stumbled my way through Freshman Astronomy 101.  When told the moon is 238,900 miles away from earth, I asked “So, how many times would I have to drive from Houston to Austin?”  Of course my question elicited snickers.  However, I was trying to put a context around that great distance so I could understand viscerally.  Yep, I’m a kinesthetic learner.   The almost full moon and Pacific Ocean have dazzled me the last few nights.  The … [Read more...]

3 Easy Ways To Increase Your Resilience

“What is your current resilience factor?” I asked a client recently.   I could have made a batch of gluten-free cookies in the pause before her answer. “I don’t think I’m very resilient at all,” she said in a measured tone, trying to hide that she was weeping.  “Woo-hoo, pot of gold!” I thought.  Then, with oceans of love, I said to her, “We have hit a nerve here.  Let’s just be right here, right now.”  Just then, she felt vulnerable and … [Read more...]

What Your Body Knows

Sunday afternoon, the migraine overtook me slowly, as if it had been watching and waiting for a vulnerable moment.  I kept at my organizing and financial tasks, ignoring the growing discomfort in the hopes that the slow start of the headache meant it would not be a bad one. Monday morning, my inner wisdom said, “Be gentle with yourself today.”  I not only acknowledged the brilliance of that wisdom, I followed it.  But the migraine continued to … [Read more...]

Full Moon Wild Ride!

January’s Full Moon in Leo is going to fire-up our emotional responses to “stuff” – so there, can’t say you weren’t warned!  While deal-breaking stuff is not up for most of us, this full moon we are gifted with the desire and strength to share our hearts, our passions, our longings and, yes, our boundaries!  Sun opposite in Aquarius tempers some of our fierier communications with a cooling, watery impartiality. The power of this combination … [Read more...]
