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...]

This Month's Full Moon’s Eclipse in Scorpio (Thursday, April 25, 12:57 p.m. pacific) has the potential to unlock, release and transform unacknowledged emotions, particularly about your body.  Phew!  I feel lighter already!  Sun in Taurus and the nature of spring pull us to look outside for the tangible answers in life.  Sun in Taurus urges clarity.  Sun in Taurus calls BS on BS.  Sun in Taurus also craves beauty and can open our sensual … [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...]

Full Moon Partial Eclipse

The partial eclipse takes place between 4:14 – 8:51 a.m. pacific time with the best chance to notice something around 6:00 a.m. or moonset on Wednesday morning, November 28.  Though I’m a notorious night owl, my alarm is set!  The folks on the east coast of the US and those in Eastern Europe will miss seeing the show.  However, we will all feel the impact of the eclipse. I just got in from an after dinner walk and a lovely chat with Grandmother … [Read more...]

Banish The Relationship Devil!

Are you worried about your children, parents, partner or pets? Does 3:00 a.m. find you ruminating about an exchange with a co-worker or client?  Are you scared you are somehow screwing up your spiritual relationship by not meditating enough, or just right?  I think we all engage in these crazy-making, sleep-depriving worries.  Why?  We don’t want to be the ones that “mess up” a relationship. When I decided to heal my body rather than undergo … [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...]
