Horoscopes: October 2018

September 27, 2018

Welcome to your October 2018 overview! The big news this month is lovely Venus will be making her rare retrograde into the deep dark waters of the abyss, Scorpio. Although Venus goes retrograde every eighteen months or so, this year is very… special. Get your candy ready because there’s going to be PLENTY of tricks and treats. With Jupiter in the mix, you’re bound to be given some deep insight into what you value. Venus rules love AND money, so when she retrogrades we reassess but matters in our lives. In Scorpio, it could be that a lost love returns and we decide if we REALLY wanna go back there again. This period lasts from October 5th- November 16th 2018, however, the actual shadow reaches clear into mid-December. Income is likely to fluctuate at this time, this is as a result of your relationship with money. It’s a great time to catch up on your taxes, examine a budget, work with a partner on...

INSPIRATION & INDEPENDENCE : Full Moon in Aries, September 24, 2018

INSPIRATION & INDEPENDENCE : Full Moon in Aries, September 24, 2018

September 21, 2018

Aries, the first sign of the zodiac, keeps things moving and beckons us into taking action. Invite the Aries full moon by honoring your independence and inspiration through passion projects or setting new goals. Lead with your will and this moon may serve you well. And while all of this may sound great at first, the shadow side can be impatience, easily annoyed, or compulsive (says the natal Aries Moon). Watch out for a bit of emotional avoidance, Aries doesn’t have time to feel things. This in-charge sign activates our inner warrior and passion so be prepared for a bit of agitation or competition even if you...

Mabon: Mysteries & Myth

Mabon: Mysteries & Myth

September 21, 2018

For thousands of years fall has been a time to connect with the mysteries of life as well as a time of gratitude for Earth’s offerings. Often called the Witches Thanksgiving, Mabon, was the second harvest festival of three each year, the first being Lammas. Traditionally during this time, Pagans and other nature-based faiths would celebrate crops and prepare for the colder months ahead. In fact, Thanksgiving in the United States, used to be celebrated near the first week of October, which made much more sense agriculturally. Then later the date was changed by Abraham Lincoln, and then Roosevelt. Obviously neither of them understood there wasn’t much left to harvest by late November.

RITUAL & ROUTINE: New Moon in Virgo, September 9, 2018

RITUAL & ROUTINE: New Moon in Virgo, September 9, 2018

September 06, 2018

Virgo, as the only human form on the zodiac, brings us down into practicality. As the scribe, writer, and messenger, writing and clear communication take precedent. Be mindful of know-it-all or overthinking tendencies (guilty as charged) and analyzing to the point of detriment.  In its elevated expression, Virgo pushes us to problem solve in service to be a better version of ourselves and to others, though often it can be taken as critical or judgmental instead of helpful.

FANTASY & FLOW: Full Moon in Pisces, August 26, 2018

FANTASY & FLOW: Full Moon in Pisces, August 26, 2018

August 23, 2018

With the moon in Pisces the emotional realm can become overly empathetic or a little lost at sea. While it connects us to unconditional love and the spirit realm, it also can lose sight of shore. The highly sensitive element of Pisces invites us to be gentle with ourselves and others as we may notice waves of emotion without warning. However, my least favorite tendency of Pisces moon can be to spiritually bypass feelings or disassociate to avoid them. Remember we must navigate the messiness of being human before we can

SPIRITUAL SELF-AWARENESS: New Moon in Leo + Partial Solar Eclipse, Saturday, August 11, 2018

SPIRITUAL SELF-AWARENESS: New Moon in Leo + Partial Solar Eclipse, Saturday, August 11, 2018

August 10, 2018

The partial solar eclipse is the third in an odd series of three and opens a unique portal into self-awareness, self-wisdom, and perhaps even our own Godliness. With Leo’s warmth we explore and integrate our self-expression and creativity, though the shadow side can be overly self-centered or egotistical. As if being a partial eclipse in Leo weren’t special enough, this new moon forms a rare configuration called a Yod with Pluto and Neptune. “Yod” comes from the Hebrew word for “hand of God” and astrologically “points” to a planetary triangulation of spiritual awareness and evolution.

The History of Plants and Herbs in Medicine and Spirituality

The History of Plants and Herbs in Medicine and Spirituality

August 02, 2018

Most, if not all world cultures, both historical and modern, have performed rituals using plants and herbs for religious, spiritual, or medicinal purposes. While many may think of “ritual” in terms of religion and spirituality, rituals can come in many forms. In fact, the line between religion, spirituality, and medicine is much more vague than many realize. Physical disorders often arise as a result of psychological disorders, such as anxiety and depression, which can be deeply spiritual.

Greeting the Grain: Lammas & Lughanasadh

Greeting the Grain: Lammas & Lughanasadh

July 31, 2018

Lammas, aka Lughanasadh in Gaelic, marks the beginning of the harvest season in Wiccan and Pagan traditions. It occurs August 1 as rough halfway point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox for the Northern Hemisphere, though Old Lammas was said to occur when the Sun reached 15 degrees Leo. Whether you honor the mid-point or astrological date, this special holiday celebrates the mystery and magic of the spirit of the grain. The name Lammas comes from old English meaning “loaf mass,” as it originated from celebrations of harvest time. Historically in Pagan and Wiccan traditions there were three harvests each year with corresponding holidays honoring each. Lammas was the first harvest with grain, the second Mabon (September 21 through September 29 this year) was fruit, and then finally near Samhain (October 31-November 1 this year) was nuts and berries.

Horoscopes: August 2018

Horoscopes: August 2018

July 25, 2018

This month there is a wave of retrograde energy at play. With six planets going retrograde plus Chiron, it’s a time to sit back and review. We are still coming off of the two eclipses in Cancer and Aquarius last month, so it’s expected for emotions to still be tender. I don’t often write about the significance of retrogrades unless of course, it’s a mercury retrograde. But this month a brief lesson may deem helpful. During a retrograde for those of us here on earth, a planet may appear to be moving backwards. While it may seem real, it’s an optical illusion. This is a result of the planet slowing down. Many people I speak with tend to freak out when they hear the word “retrograde”, but I am always quick to squash this reaction. I suppose it’s because most aren’t aware that we almost ALWAYS have a planet in some sort of retrograde motion. While closer orbiting planets like Mercury go retrograde often (3 times a year, usually), slower outer planets like Neptune or Pluto may

COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS: Total Lunar Eclipse + Full Moon in Aquarius, July 27th, 2018

COLLECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS: Total Lunar Eclipse + Full Moon in Aquarius, July 27th, 2018

July 25, 2018

This eclipse may feel a bit like full moon on steroids…Mars steroids to be specific. It’s about everything that makes a full moon powerful, blood moon, total eclipse, super moon and it’s also the longest total lunar eclipse of the century at 1 hour and 43 minutes long. While visible mostly in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa, parts South America…its energies will be felt worldwide, which is exactly what an Aquarius moon would want. Aquarius concerns us with the realm of humanity, community and collective inviting us into pondering our place within the whole. It highlights revolution and evolution, though the Aquarius shadow side can be an identify as an outsider or lone wolf, or feeling too special that one doesn’t belong.

EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT: Partial Solar Eclipse + New Moon in Cancer, July 12 & 13, 2018

July 11, 2018

This powerful partial eclipse and new moon in Cancer begins the next lunar cycle and prepares us for a full moon lunar eclipse later this month. Cancer energies connect us to our family, home, emotions, and needs. It asks us to pay more attention to our intuition as well as our conditioned feelings and receptivity. Though the detrimental side of Cancer may be overly protective or giving in hopes of getting its needs met in return. Perhaps the most important aspect of this new moon is the exact opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This primordial planetary energy evokes upheaval for the purpose of regeneration and rebirth. It often asks us to dig deeper into...
