Becoming Self-Centred: Full Moon in Leo

Last week the provincial government here announced it will do away with vax passports as of 1 March, after bringing them in the day I returned from Wilderness Solo in early September 2021. (Getting rid of masks as well, on 15 Mar.) I can feel my brain reframing my whole experience, now that there’s an end date, […]

New Moon in Aries: Sustainable Activism

This last week I’ve taken a different tack with my running: pacing myself according to my heart rate. (In full disclosure, I’ve hardly run at all through Winter, opting for walks instead, so I’m picking up the pieces here this Spring!) The idea is pretty simple: keep your heart rate within a particular band of […]

New Moon in Pisces: Sustaining our Vision

2020 Review: Connection & Community

2020 was certainly a year of surprises, and an opportunity to grow my ability to adjust and adapt.  Amidst it all, I felt well-resourced and incredibly blessed.  Gord’s comment was, “COVID has shown us the character of the rhythms and systems of our family.” Our rhythms are strong, and our systems are supportive… 2020 was […]

Year of the Mountain

beautiful mountain

  If you’re like most womyn I know, you’re juggling a multitude of balls, caring for numerous people, projects and pets, generating income to support yourself and your loved ones… … and maybe trying to express your creativity and practice some self-care in there as well! Whew! That’s a lot! Meanwhile, the amount of admin for your job, the […]

Welcome to the New Moon in Leo, which was exact on: Wednesday 31st July, 10.11pm (CDT) Thursday 1st August, 4.11am (BST) Thursday 1st August, 1.11pm (AEST) To me it felt like a burst of fresh energy, after the intensity of the two eclipses and some grinding Cancer-Capricorn transformation! In fact, it hardly even felt like […]

Cancer-Capricorn Eclipses & the Saturn-Pluto Conjunction of Jan 2020

As you may already know, we are in eclipse season once again, with this recent New Moon in Cancer on 2nd/3rd July, and the Full Moon in Capricorn coming up on the 16th/17th July. In an eclipse, the regular light of Sun or Moon is obscured, and therefore, in the mythopoetic language of the stars, […]

New Moon in Cancer: Autoimmunity and the Loss of Self-Tolerance

(Image: We are One, by MiaCharro.) I’ve been reading a book called The Hashimoto’s Healing Diet: Anti-Inflammatory Strategies for Losing Weight, Boosting Your Thyroid, and Getting Your Energy Back by Marc Ryan. As I was saying here, I keep an eye out for thyroid stuff, cos it’s in my genetic stream. I also know that […]

Full Moon in Libra: What’s your ‘subject’?

The other night, as an unconscious Spring seed, I started reading Steven Pressfield’s latest book The Artist’s Journey: The Wake of the Hero’s Journey and the Lifelong Pursuit of Meaning. You might remember Steven from The War of Art fame… where he writes about how an epic battle with Resistance is part of every creative […]

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 […]

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 […]

Cancer Lunar Cycle: Calling in a New Home

Marvelling once again at the exactitude of the lunar cycle dancing me through the opportunities and invitations of each phase and each day.  For some reason my real life strongly ‘matched’ the Moon this month! A year ago, during the last ‘New Moon in Cancer’ lunar cycle I felt the call to move to the […]

Solstice Portal + Playlist

In some mysterious ritual, this very day my family moves from Australia to Canada, We leave in mid-Winter and arrive in mid-Summer, stepping through an invisible portal. To me it feels like a labour and birth. To look at every single thing that has filled our house for years and decide whether to keep it. […]

Chiron in Aries: Warming Our Sacred Wound

Not sure about you, but I am glad to be out of the tumbling waves of Pisces.  It’s been a big month, with a volume of old patterning coming to the surface to be dissolved and reimagined.  Not that I’ve felt visionary, but rather more kin to the imaginal mush of the caterpillar prior to its […]

Insight & Clarity for 2018

I love the time-out-of-time quality of this week between Christmas and New Years – how all the regular rhythms fall away and the outside world slows down a little.  My phone’s been off, the emails are piling up, and I count that as a good thing.  Feels like prime time for Dreaming… Don’t know about […]

Leo 2 Lunar Cycle: Spring Transformation

Musing on multiple lives on two sides of the world, the new possibilities of Spring, and negotiating white water on the River of Change, throughout this second Leo New Moon cycle for 2017! Each month I map my experiences as they unfold, using the Lunar Journal to help me see the patterns.  Knowing my life […]

Leo 1 Lunar Cycle: Where is Home?

Each month I map my experiences as they unfold, using the Lunar Journal to help me see the patterns.  Knowing my life is held in the cycle of birth, growth, full bloom, harvest, decay, death and rebirth grounds me, and also alerts me to the opportunities of each day and each season.   I offer […]

Cancer Lunar Cycle: Elk Medicine Drum

While the last lunar cycle was a wild ride, this cycle has played out in a concrete and almost ‘simple’ way, in the form of making an elk medicine drum.  Here’s how I’ve used the lunar map to frame my experience.   New Moon: what is new? I speak and move my New Moon prayers […]

Gemini Lunar Cycle: A Long Story

This is a story of this last lunar cycle, and how the Moon with her many faces danced with precision through my life, unfolding my Gemini New Moon prayer into fullness, harvest and completion (for now).  And the Lunar Journal, which helps me witness these patterns, is now 50% off! New Moon: Up early exactly […]
