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...]

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...]

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...]

What Are You Harvesting?

What Are You Harvesting?  While etymological experts debate the origin of the word Lammas, the first week of August is well recognized as a celebration of the early harvest, particularly in Europe.  This Earth Harvest celebration is a great time for us to pause and reflect. Yes, our social media fast pace world urges us to do more and push harder, but  let’s slow down today and look. Take a moment to consider:  Which of your 2011 goals have … [Read more...]
