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...]

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...]

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...]

Aries Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Are you feeling feisty AND like hiding under the covers until some “storm” of change you feel coming passes?  This full moon is a GREAT time to have a few long-time-coming conversations … with yourself and others. Aries Full Moon is like an energetic magic wand, offering courage, passion, assertiveness, and a little attitude strut and righteousness.  (Handle those last two elements with care!  Remember – Aries is a fire sign and words can … [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...]

Blue Moon Guide

Tuesday, August 20 heralds a Blue Moon!  Confusion abounds when it comes to the term “Blue Moon” because along the way, the definition was misunderstood and re-printed in an Almanac.  For a full read on it, check out this brainy explanation.   Here’s my quick and skinny synopsis for the busy modern goddess!  The older meaning of Blue Moon is what we are experiencing this week – four full moons in one season.  Hold on, it gets better.  Last … [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...]

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...]

Breakthrough Full Moon

Breakthrough.  At first I was disturbed to see that the first definition on dictionary.com uses war language: “a military movement or advance all the way through and beyond an enemy's front-line defense.”  Yet the more I thought about breakthrough from this angle, I saw that when we are longing for a breakthrough in our lives, we are at war with some part of ourselves.  We have a vision, an idea, a desire … yet we defend our current position … [Read more...]
