Full Moon in Aries 2020

It was a New Moon in Virgo two weeks ago, inviting us to priestess our lives, to tend to our bodies, to course-correct towards wholeness, even and especially in TINY ways. The law of compound interest applies as much to our health and joy as to finances… And now we dance with this Full Moon […]

Hike Magic

Beautiful hike on the weekend, at #huntlaketrail.  The world is a beautiful place!  This summer, I’ve been committed to soaking some of it up… Listening to the rocks, marvelling at the moss and roots, cooling my feet in the water at the midway point after my kids set a rocking pace (we completed this ‘6hr […]

Leadership: Taking Full Responsibility

family team leadership

I just started reading a book on leadership called Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. I don’t usually read anything war-related, so I am being confronted by frequent descriptions of Gulf War combat – I feel a whole mixture of responses. But I am so interested in […]

The School of the Widely Open Heart

School of the Widely Open Heart 1

I want to share a vision I have been holding for the last year, for the School of the Widely Open Heart! The recent New Moon in Virgo did my head in. I felt stripped back, abraided at a soul level. Unmoored from aspects of meaning and identity. Beliefs I’d built myself on. The energy […]

Full Moon in Scorpio: Live your full wattage!

What if you’re a 240v POWERHOUSE who’s only been given a 120v story? What story? You know, the one about how only the YANG half of the creative cycle is valuable – the growing, productive, expanding, summery, positive, ‘up’ part of the process. The story where the YIN half of the cycle gets a really […]

Full Moon in Libra: Remembering Our Artisan Selves

The thread that’s been arriving for me this Full Moon – a thread that speaks to Libra’s love of balance – is this: “We’ve only been told half the story.” Not a new idea, but a circling back to it. And always, grief and outrage that in Western culture, what’s been promoted and valued is […]

Full Moon in Virgo: Priestess Sings Herself Up With Prayer

Priestess moon circlet

As I mentioned last time, on New Year’s Day I fell into a deep despair around my ability to change, and an antidote emerged in the form of prayer. If I couldn’t envision myself changing, then I was destined to keep finding myself in some very familiar and very painful places. And the idea that […]

New Moon in Aquarius: Shadow Bootcamp

Priestess Your Life altar 1

How was your January with those two intense eclipses?!   Just saying, I wasn’t ready for them at all! My life went to utter pieces, multiple times, throughout the first month of 2019, and I’m still recovering!  Like finding myself at Shadow Bootcamp without having ever signed up (well, consciously, at least)! I’m making peace with feeling periodically broken […]

My Daughter’s Menarche

  My daughter journeyed the rite-of-passage of her menarche, one year ago, with grace and aplomb!  I was and am inspired and heartened by how she has been able to talk about it as and how she wants to. I am delighted and still surprised that the pattern or imprint around this whole ‘being female’ […]

Libra Lunar Cycle: Invitation into Sacred Relating

I’ve been reflecting this last month on how I show up in conflict.  How I seek to avoid it, how I also create it, and what that means for my relationships (Libra) and how they play out. Not cos I think this is a particularly fun bone to chew, but rather because some key relationships […]

Virgo Lunar Cycle: Wilderness Solo

  I’m freshly returned from the Wilderness Solo gathering that is the ‘peak’, you could say, of the Four Seasons Journey.  All our ceremonies, reflecting, sharing and unpacking together throughout the year lead us to this time of deep communion with the Land, this deep remembering that we are in a constant conversation with Nature, […]

Leo Lunar Cycle: Welcoming Our Rejected Selves

Well, we’re coming to the end of this relatively rare triple-whammy of an eclipse period, with this New Moon.  Here’s how it all went down: 1. New Moon and Solar Eclipse at 20° Cancer on 12th/13th July 2. Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse at 4° Aquarius on 27th/28th July 3. and now this New Moon […]
