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...]

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...]

How To Really Celebrate Being A Woman

Do you really celebrate being a woman?  By its very nature, celebration suggests an out-loud, public proclamation.  Case in point – March 8th is International Women’s Day.  Today, corporations with no, or one or two women on their Boards of Directors, and governments run by non-representative government (as in, not representing the make-up of the population) will donate money, make pledges and promise a few incremental changes. (Don’t worry I … [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...]
