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...]

Spring Equinox – Balance in Motion!

Wednesday, March 20, 2013 is the Spring Equinox - a day to celebrate balance, equality and symmetry.  We take note that there are equal parts day and night.  We celebrate a balance of feminine and masculine energies within us, inviting wholeness in balance.    This year’s theme:  the balance, equality and symmetry of loving yourself in equality to the love you bestow on others.  I invite you to ponder what it is to balance your inner scale of … [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...]

Get Your Balance On!

Despite summer’s last gasp of soaring temperatures, the Fall Equinox is this week: Saturday, September 22, 2012.  We enter the sun sign of Libra, which is all about restoring balance, harmony and fairness.  The trick?  To give those things to ourselves as much as we offer them to others. Then & Now As a kid I thought the transition from summer to fall was about moving from playtime to study-time (and that I could officially start making my … [Read more...]

Blue Moons & Self Love

Friday, August 31, 2012 is the full moon and a “Blue Moon” at that. There are two definitions floating around about the term Blue Moon.  The older of the two definitions refers to the third of four full moons in one season (there are typically three moon cycles per season).  The “newer” and some would say accidental definition refers to the second full moon in one month.  Either way – Blue Moons don’t happen regularly.  In fact, the next one … [Read more...]

Trick or Treat!

I loved everything about Halloween as a kid – from picking out costumes and candy to the decorations my mom put up.  At four, I already knew animal print was fashionable, evidenced by this photo!  (My brother looks like he is anything but pleased to be taking this picture with his kid sister, though my mother swears he was just trying to look like a “tough pirate”!) I didn’t know then that Halloween borrows from ancient holidays like Celtic … [Read more...]

Just Lucky?

I have a double confession, though not the juicy kind requiring a Priest.   First up: I’m lucky.  My numbers are called in raffle prizes.  Store clerks give me discounts.  I find front row parking spaces at malls in December.  Here’s the second confession.  The last two months I’ve dealt with my broken foot, missing out on summer fun has left me feeling decidedly cranky and unlucky. Cursed, Lucky or Blessed? Today I am BLESSING with gratitude … [Read more...]

Summer Solstice June 21, 2011

The longest day of the year is upon us! The Summer Solstice conjures up childhood memories of: ♦ Playing outside with friends even after dinner♦ A Feeling of “I CAN!”♦ A feeling that the next school year was a long way off As an adult, the Summer Solstice might just find you working too hard, too long, and feeling pressured rather than inspired. (I say a big, fat “ugh” to feeling pressured!) Summer Solstice Is a Reason to Celebrate! Google … [Read more...]

Feminine Is the New Black! (And it looks great on you!)

Have The Goddess and The Feminine Reached a Tipping Point? I feel so full.  And a little bit self-satisfied!  Why?  I’m hearing and watching people talk about something dearest to my goddess-feminine-power-promoting heart – The Feminine! And not in the fluffy pink pillow, impossible to walk in pink strappy sandals or inappropriately revealing neckline way! (Yes, I love my fluffy pillows, strappy sandals and, well, mostly appropriate … [Read more...]
