Get ready, moonbeams. We're in for a powerful ride. It's officially summer on this side of the world and we are feeling the expansive heat of the sun, while those of you in the Southern Hemisphere are moving inward with winter. That said, we can all use the energy of this new moon for movement and levity, as well as an opportunity to use this season as a vehicle for transformation.Read More
FULL MOON IN CAPRICORN : TIME TO CLEANSE
June's Full Moon is the first one after Summer Solstice, and falls very close to Saturn Opposition, when the ringed planet is brighter in the sky than usual. Both lend to an energetic potency that we will be moving through for this next two weeks.
This full moon is known as a Strawberry Moon, named by Native Americans to demarcate the short strawberry season. Native American women use this moon as a time to cleanse: to rid themselves of possessions, relationships, patterns, and emotional baggage that is no longer serving them.
Although many new moons can have a more introverted energy, this new moon in Gemini is encouraging you to gather with others, move your body, get outside, and take that risk you've been saving for later. Since Gemini is strong in its inquisitive intellect, it's also an opportunity to change your mindset and change the ways you use your thinking mind. Take advantage of this time to broaden your perspective and harness powerful intentions.Read More
Building your own home altar is a beautiful way to call in the power of intention while creating a sacred space to call your own. The more you sit with your altar, the more this focused healing energy begins to swell.
This little nook is a place where you can journal, meditate, contemplate, create, grieve, pray, envision, practice, and craft your rituals. So it's important to regularly clean and clear this space as an act of love and care.Read More
I’m a believer of magic and meditation. The two combined is a perfect formula for deep inner work that can help us get clear about what we’re calling into our lives and what barriers might be in the way. Healing barriers to love requires a willingness to walk through vulnerability as you build trust and reclaim your wholeness.

It’s a simpler way of working with roses and creates more of a rose tea which can be worked with in a variety of ways.Read More
Intention is a creative power. It's where all of our dreams and desires begin. Our focused intention sets things into motion and helps drown out critical heady voices that can side track our growth. We can set intentions for any aspect of our life -- they fuel our ability to consciously create our day, to believe in our dreams and to push through hurdles. Setting a clear and sincere intention is like magic. It is not passive and requires us to put some personal oomph into actualizing them.Read More
Community is one of the most important parts of being human, yet it isn't uncommon to be disconnected from one another in a profound way. The habitual and superficial ways in which many of us have learned to interact can’t satisfy like the true tribal bonds that are available to us if we open our hearts and seek them out. My path to finding genuine sisterhood and friendship has been a constant learning experience, and something I have learned the importance of prioritizing. I will share a bit of my story and thoughts here in hopes of inspiring you to open to the magic of inviting others into the deep parts of your heart to become family.Read More
Stagnation is a call for change. Feeling stuck is a sign that you need to move. Weighed down with clutter is a nudge to clean up and make space. The thread between them all is to Let Go. We know this yet sometimes we resist or avoid the signal.Read More
