New Moon in Aries: April 2018

Happy New Moon in Aries!! Our fourth new moon of the year, this new moon allows us to activate the firey energy of Aries. Aries energy is about knowing what you feel, being honest about what you feel, and then acting a way that honors this knowing. Clean fire sign energy in general are known to be clear and in touch with themselves. This new moon gives us the chance to access this energy and channel it into the area of our lives we feel needs it the most.

Along with this beautiful new moon, we are all basking in the energy of Mercury turning direct again. πŸ™‚ Β Mercury retrograde has gained increasing popularity over the past few years, and while I believe very much in using where the stars are to illuminate patterns in our lives, we must be very careful to not use them as an excuse to project fear onto our lives. We always contain way more power than we think, and step one in this is getting clear in the ways we have been hiding behind things outside of us to dictate our energy.

That being said, of course you should celebrate Mercury going direct if you feel a shift in your energy! You should also use this new moon in Aries to set your intentions around the new you want to call into and create in your life, especially harnessing the energy of Aries.

For reflective questions:

  1. Mercury retrograde can trigger a lot for a lot of us because it is another layer deep in healing something our ego wants to tell us we have “already healed”. However, the amazing thing about us is that we are all infinite, which means there is always another layer to heal, transmute, and release. For this mercury retrograde, which lesson came up for you the loudest? (Hint: if your ego is judging you for going through it, that’s probably the one!)
  2. Clear, clean Aries energy is along the lines of, “I don’t give a fuck! Here’s my truth! Deal with it!” Looking at what you wrote for number one, how would an Aries respond to this lesson that’s coming up for you? If you are an Aries, you most likely exist in your pain body around your lesson, so instead access clear Aries energy for your answer for this one.
  3. Surprise, bitch! Number 2 was a trick πŸ˜‰ It was helpful for you to think of the solution outside of your pain body, but the guidance that came through for you came from YOU! You were most likely blocked because you believe you can’t respond in the way you wrote for number 2 because you’re subconsciously afraid of being called a name for it (crazy, too much, cry baby, psycho, bitch, etc.). Step one is identifying all the words that came up and writing them down, looking at them, and reminding yourself you don’t need to make them real anymore. Step two is this question: what would the energy you channeled for question two say to affirm you through the lesson in number one?
  4. Finally, in order to move into a new energy pattern, we must be willing to let go of our current attachments. What do you need to let go of to go there? This could be limiting beliefs, patterns, ideas, people, places, things, etc. You must commit energetically before you can commit physically!

Blessings and peace in your heart and empowerment this new moon. All my love to you.




New Moon in Capricorn January 2018

Happy New Moon in Capricorn!! This is the first New Moon of 2018 and with it being in the Earth sign of Capricorn, we still can tap into that “be motivated, New Year New Me” shit. πŸ™‚

Capricorn is the Earth sign. The goat. And the GOAT. If you need to get something done and you want it to be slow and steady climb to the top of that mountain, Capricorn is the energy to call in. Additionally, many planets just went direct, so we are feeling a lot of clarity in our lives. Illusions have fallen away, and it is time now to honor what we hear and know our truth.

If you still have not set New Year intentions, this Capricorn New Moon is a powerful to do that, as you can tap into the cyclical energy of the Earth resetting itself just the same. Here are today’s reflective questions in addition:

  1. Take a moment to take a few deep breaths and connect to the Earth. Imagine the warm glow flowing up into your body and providing strength and the rest and reset into your body that you need. Now, think about some energy from 2017 you are bringing into 2018 that you don’t need anymore. What energy can you erase from your body by utilizing the Earth’s resetting that is also you to do this?
  2. If there is any zodiac sign that can make a plan to get something done, it is Capricorn energy. What is one goal you want to accomplish in 2018? Write three tangible and quantifiable steps you will take to achieve it (for example: write “I will go to yoga once a week,” instead of, “I will go to yoga more). Also answer the following questions: a) What is one thing I will say yes to in order to achieve my goal? b) What is one thing I will say no to in order to achieve my goal?
  3. If not in a state of balance, each zodiac sign can have a shadow side to it. With Capricorn, this energy can sometimes manifest as being “too serious”. Sometimes the ego can trick us into thinking goal setting and putting boundaries on our lives will make us too boring when actually it gives us space to have the freedom to create the life we want. Amidst your goal planning and boundary setting, what will you do in conjunction with this to make sure your life is still light and fun?
  4. When the New Year comes, most of us can’t believe another year has already passed. Take a moment to envision yourself at your New Year’s celebration for 2019. What do you want to be able to say to yourself one year from now? After you identify this, write these statements into present tense affirmations and use them to guide you through this year. For example, if you want to be able to say: “I am so proud of you for trusting your heart and taking that new job,” your affirmations might be something like, “I trust my heart. I say yes to new opportunities.”

Wishing you lots of love and clarity on this New Moon! All my blessings.



New Moon In Sagittarius December 2017

Happy New Moon in Sagittarius — aka the last New Moon of 2017!! It has been a long, intense year of shifting and moving, and I want to thank you for being with me throughout it. This has been a year of shifting and shedding and becoming more and more aligned with our true selves. The New Moon in Sagittarius is a great chance to use some of that fire energy to burn away the final things that do not serve us as we get ready to transition to 2018!

As you know, of course the New Moon is in Sagittarius today. That being said, there are a total of five planets in Sagittarius as well, which really allows us to focus on and channel the archer, adventure, fire sign that is Sagittarius. Additionally, we are in a Mercury Retrograde, the Solstice is coming up, and it is the end of year! A lot to deal with astrologically (but when is there not ;)…) but all working in our favor, of course.

For today’s reflective questions:

  1. This is the last New Moon of 2017. Thinking about each month of the year leading up today and beginning to reflect on all that you have experienced this year, what is a loud lesson for you? What do you feel like The Universe really wanted you to know this year?
  2. Sagittarius is the archer. To shoot that bow with precision and accuracy, you need to know where you are aiming and be intentional and have a plan. In regards to your own life, where is your aim? Where are you pointing your bow? What direction do you want to shoot it in?
  3. The energy of Sagittarius also encourages us to be more adventurous. Sag energy loves to go out and try something new just to try it. πŸ™‚ That being said, where do you feel like you can add more adventure to your life? This, of course, can be in physical reality, but you can also give yourself permission to do this energetically. How do you plan to spice up your life?
  4. As all fire signs, Sagittarius is a sign that likes to do it’s own thing. Fire sign energy just does not like being told what to do. Channeling this energy, in what area in your life do you need to listen/receive guidance from yourself where you’ve been looking from others? Where do you need to shut off the outside noise and hear YOU?

Wishing you all a peaceful and clear end to your 2017! Sending you all lots of love, and I look forward to connecting in 2018!



New Moon in Scorpio November 2017

We are coming to the end of 2017, and this has truly been a year of releasing, purging, and transmuting many, many limiting beliefs about the self and others that we needed to. With today being the second last New Moon of the year, it is time we look at what else we want to plant anew with the new energy of this new moon phase.

Today’s New Moon in is Scorpio and Scorpio is carrying the energy of savagery. Now, Scorpio is a water sign, so the savagery isn’t too crazy πŸ˜‰ but there are definitely themes of what do you need to let go of or release finally and truly? Many of us have come to our wits’ end in terms of passively putting up with shit that is not for us — either coming from ourselves or something outside of us. Today is the day to honor being sick of that shit and doing and being different! This New Moon (as New Moons are in general) is great for calling in and cultivating new energy.

For today’s reflective questions:

  1. Knowing we have some savage AF energy coming to us from when Scorpio has HAD it, where do you need to turn up the savagery in your life? Aka where do you need to set clearer boundaries for yourself? Either physical boundaries, emotional ones, or even around thoughts you think.
  2. We know our ego is very tricky, and sometimes it can trick us to focus on something we don’t actually need to be focusing on. Often times, this is under the illusion of some type of control we don’tΒ actually have. Holding this thought, in what areas of your life do you need to reclaim your personal power within yourself by letting go of control over something your ego has convinced you you have control over but you actually don’t? Where do you need to mind your business more?
  3. Revisit your answers for numbers one and two. In order to have these boundaries in place, there needs to be a removal of bittness and resentment. So, to fulfill the answers for numbers one and two, who or what do you need to forgive? This can include yourself, others, thoughts, limiting beliefs, etc. And remember: forgiveness doesn’t mean condoning or not honoring your boundaries. It means clearing out shit that is not yours from you energy field so that you may be free!
  4. Finally, because this is the New Moon, we have access to powerful energy in terms of planting new seeds and creating a powerful vision for ourselves. Take a moment to breath deeply and imagine you as your best, most true self. Really see it and hold that energy for yourself. After you have this picture in your mind, describe it clear and intentionally in the present tense through a free write as if it already is. And so it shall be. πŸ™‚

Happy New Moon blessings to you and yours!



Six Years Sober: Reflections on Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Health

Today I am so so so very blessed and grateful to celebrate S I X beautiful, full, unexpected, amazing YEARS of being 100% free from drugs and alcohol! I am grateful for my sobriety and the work I have done to maintain it every day, but having a sober-versary is always a blessing. Having a specific day to honor and do ritual and intentional celebration to give proper thanks to this feels so wonderful.

When I first got sober, one of the main reasons was for my health. This was a vague motivator for me, but I could hear it, and so I trusted it. Over the years, I have taken many, many unexpected turns and paths with my health and it has unfolded in ways I couldn’t have imagined, but the journey and commitment has been so rich and worth it–even when it hasn’t been easy. For this year, I will be reflecting on my journey with my physical, mental, and spiritual health over the past six years of choosing to be sober and what that has looked like for me.

Physical health: this part of my health has always been pretty straight forward for me. The journey has been how I (mostly) expected it. Eat like shit, feel like shit. Don’t move my body or give it the movement it wants, feel like shit. Of course, I have spent SO much time and energy listening to my body, getting to know it, what it likes and doesn’t like, researching a challenge that comes up, and asking for help/support/guidance from professionals as needed, but overall, this area of my health has been fairly input/output relationship-oriented. The physical body responds. Of course, my physical body’s health has dramatically increased since choosing to be sober with the first reason being that I can actually stand to be in my body and listen to it. From there, each day is different, but for the most part, if I listen and show up for it in terms of nutrition, exercise, and other holistic care and approach to it, I am in a good spot.

Mental health: this area of my health has been the most difficult over the years. At various points in my life, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). And, honestly, it has been a lifetime of learning to hold myself in softness and patience with and through these. When I first got sober, the sobriety of it was literally overwhelming, which is what makes staying sober so hard. I had been using for about nine years when I stopped, and for me, all of my using meant I was not able to be present with myself. Therefore, when I got sober and had to sit with all my shit, I was frozen. Mental health is not like physical health. I cannot follow a formula and guarantee there will be a specific output. Because I have paid attention to myself and my triggers and spent countless hours nurturing gentleness with myself, I am able to be more aware and spot patterns within myself, but the truth about my mental health is it is unpredictable. Of course, I can actively choose to do things I know will minimize my triggers or make me feel out of balance with myself, but no matter how much control I think I have over my mental health, I need to accept it as part of me. Mental health is waves. It is unpredictable. It can come out of nowhere. And it has taught me that acceptance of what is and being gentle with myself and honoring what I need in the present moment is more important than trying to chase an impossible end goal of “defeating” any negative or unideal feelings. I have been seeing a therapist every week for the past 7 years (and plan on continuing to do so as long as needed). I set boundaries for myself. I say no. I spend time in nature. I choose healthy relationships in my life. I meditate. I read. I write. I breathe. I tend to myself. All of this is good. But none of it can prevent any episodes in my mental health I will ever have. And learning to love myself through every state of my mental health has been what brings me (back to) peace; not the illusion of trying to prevent or control. My mental health teaches me every day about the necessity of committing to and accepting the self with gentleness and love no matter what I look or act like that day.

Spiritual health: to be honest, in this area of my health I truly never thought I would be where I am at. Having been incarnated into this life with many, many lifetimes of past trauma and wounding and experienced a lot in this lifetime as well, I was traumatized to the point that I gave up on God. I thought it was easier. I thought I had been abandoned. Throughout my life, I had fleeting moments of praying, or feeling the comfort you find when you connect to Source, but never this steady, clear energy I had heard about. Thankfully, the Universe did not give up on me and was still (trying to) communicate with me. Even more thankfully, slowly, slowly, through many different means and mediums, I began to connect with a Higher Power that felt good and real to me. Synchronistic moments were picked up by my conscious brain. The sun and wind touched my skin and I pulsated with All That Is. Books with what I needed to hear found me. My journals over-flowed with messages from The Other Side. Eventually I realized that this part of me had always been there, but I had never fully allowed it. I was afraid, and so my ego convinced me that my abandonment was greater than the unconditional Love we are all entitled to. Today, I can happily and fully say I am committed to my relationship with Spirit (or Source or God or The Universe or Thee Most High or whatever you call this) more than I have ever been in my life, and it is the most fulfilling peace I know. Faith feels better than fear. Trust feels better than doubt. Miracles feel better than chaos.

I know all areas of my health and my life are not separated like this, but it has been helpful for me to think about them in this way. I do not know what will unfold for me, but I know I am being guided and therefore I know I cannot go wrong. I am so grateful for being able to rebuild my relationship with myself, my body, my mind, and Source every day. It is never too late. Six years later, and I am reminded of this every day.

Thank you for my sobriety. Thank you for rewriting. Thank you for healing. Thank you for transmuting and transforming. Thank you for witnessing me. Peace, love, and blessings to all beings πŸ™‚

New Moon in Libra October 2017

Happy New Moon in Libra!! As we are approaching the end of 2017 and all that this 9 year brought and will bring us, this New Moon is asking us to set boundaries and reevaluate where we are with our relationship to self and others.

Libra is the sign of the scales and balance. It is about boundaries and being mindful of the other in all relationships and then seeing what we need to do from there in order to allow our energy to be held and protected. The scales of justice that are the symbol of Libra allow us to remember to consider the other in a way we might normally not. Don’t get confused though — this doesn’t mean abandoning of the self or prioritizing others over you. The scales are there to keep us in check and be mindful of others, but never do this at the expense of you.

Additionally, we have the asteroid Karma into play with this New Moon, as the sun is currently conjunct it. Karma is in charge of the energy around relationships, especially those given to you to heal past life wounding or other karmic attachments in this lifetime. Increased energy and heightened awareness about who you are in these settings and how you want to be showing up will come into play for you.

Reflective questions for this New Moon are:

  1. Knowing Libra is the sign of the scales and justice and asks for there to be balance in order to feel peaceful, in what area(s) of your life do you need more balance in? How can you find more middle ground for yourself?
  2. Noting the aspect of sun conjunct asteroid Karma and the companion energy Libra, what is coming up for you in terms of relationships (with self, with Source, with others)? What is the karmic lesson the Universe is telling you it is time for you to learn at this time?
  3. Reviewing your answers for number one and two, what are boundaries you want to set for yourself in order to make sure what you have identified can be turned into fruition. There are physical boundaries, yes, but you can also set energetic boundaries or boundaries with your thoughts, etc. Trust what your body is telling you.
  4. Every New Moon is about planting new seeds and harnessing new energy. What do you want to plant for yourself this New Moon in Libra? Write 3-5 affirmations for yourself that will mirror what you worked through with the other questions. Reminder: affirmations are positively-tensed, first person, I AM sentences. Some examples: I am honoring and listening to my body and its needs. It is easy for me to focus my thoughts on building my highest potential

Happy New Moon!!! Blessings, healing, and love to you xx


New Moon in Virgo September 2017

Happy New Moon in Virgo, everyone!! Today we welcome the beautiful meticulous and healing energy of Virgo into our fields. This energy pairs nicely as we transition into a new season (either fall or spring, depending which hemisphere you’re in) and after the full solar eclipse we had last month. All of this is working together nicely and in your favor. πŸ™‚

Virgo is an Earth sign who strives for perfection and finds great joy in the day-to-day tasks of taking care of things. If you ever need to accomplish something and need to focus on the details of it, Virgo energy is the energy to call in and harness. Virgo likes to do the job and do it well; they like details and specifics. Their tuning to systems and the parts that make up those systems is how they channel The Other Side most clearly.

Although this may seem contradictory at first, because of the strong desire to take care of things on basic level, this is what allows Virgo to be such a strong healing sign. Most of us, thanks to our egos, believe change happens only on the large scale and with huge events. This is true to some degree, but what our egos can fail to have us recognize is that what allows these BIG events to take place is the continuous repetition of the small events; a big event is just one final small event that led to something new. This is the magic that Virgo energy can grant us.

The total solar eclipse that took place in North America last month was and is a giant catalyst for change and starting new. It functioned in many ways like a New Moon–allowing a strong and fast burning away of the old and lots of space for the new. Utilize today’s New Moon in all this free space to your advantage!

Reflective questions for today:

  1. Virgo is an Earth sign that operates best connected to Earth and being grounded. While this will, of course, look different for everyone, it is important to know what ways and how you can access this Earth grounded energy. How do you ground yourself?
  2. A sense of duty, healing, and service is vital to the thriving of Virgo energy, and all healers know you can only offer that externally which you have mastered internally. Because of the all the ways we can buy into the current state of disaster and destruction of the Earth, it can be easy to focus our energy outward instead of internally. In what ways do you need to focus more internally? In what areas do you need to adjust the mirror to so you focus more inside of yourself?
  3. Because we have had so much burn away after the eclipse, we now have space to rebuild and lay new groundwork. With this new sacred space, what do you want to reinvest in and reinvent about yourself?
  4. Virgo tends to have an avoidance of indulging if they are took focused on work and service. What are some ways you want to indulge yourself this month?

Blessings to you all!! xx


Full Moon in Capricorn July 2017

Happy Full Moon, you beautiful babies! Here we are mid-summer and this full moon is really bringing up that shit we may be did NOT want to deal with while we are chilling this summer. But, that’s life and that’s astrology for you; all here to assist in our growth. πŸ™‚

Yesterday, we had the 7/7 portal (7th day of the 7th month) right before the peak of this full moon energy. The 7/7 portal occurs before the 8/8 Lions portal, but is still about spirituality opening and taking us to our highest places. Perhaps you may feel a stronger calling to a force outside of you. Perhaps you might have opened it up already and now feel blocked because the energy was too intense. Either way, the double 7’s are working in your favor to connect you to that Higher Power that wants to guide you. You just have to surrender understanding it and simply let it in.

Astrologically, we have the sun in Cancer and the full moon in opposition Capricorn. Cancer is lovingly nick-named the “cry-baby” sign for being overly emotional while Capricorn (not so lovingly) has the reputation of being cold with minimal feelings. These opposing energies are pulling us in different directions and may have us feeling lost or confused as to who we are or what we want. However, these feelings are the same coin — just different sides. This full moon is about looking at the seemingly opposing ways the Universe is delivering our messages to us and seeing if we can understand how they are both holding our truth together, just in different ways.

Reflective questions for this full moon:

  1. In what ways are you in your feelings, thanks to that good Cancer sun energy? In what ways do you feel like your inner child is really going hard with the temper tantrum? With the “this isn’t fair” thoughts? Try not to judge yourself through this; Cancer wants us to feel. Simply observe and see where your energy is.
  2. In what ways are you trying to push yourself to be more “practical”, thanks to that good Capricorn Full Moon energy? Capricorn values the self through work a lot — especially as a means of reminding itself it has control. Where do you see yourself getting pushed to do something for work (in whatever form that is)? Where do you feel like you’re being pushed to grow or move up?
  3. For this question, take a moment to re-read what you have written so far for questions 1 and 2. Go through and answer the following questions about those two: Where did these feelings/desires come from? Whose are they? Is this who I am/what I want or is it what others have told me to be? Where did I learn this? Am I choosing this or is this left-over pain story from someone who is not me? The Full Moon is huge time for releasing, so even though something is loud right now, it might not be for you. It’s simply loud because it’s leaving. Get clear on that so you can focus your energy where you actually need and want to.
  4. As stated in the text of this blog, the Cancer/Capricorn energies are working together to expose your Truth to you — even if your ego is in hyperdrive and can’t see it. Look at your previous answers so far again; where is there overlap? Where are themes the same? If you’re having blocks with this prompt, breath deeply for one minute and then respond to this prompt, “My Truth is speaking to me, and I am willing to listen. The ways I can clearly see my Truth manifesting through what I wrote is….”

Blessings to you all!! Remember to smile and not take all this shit so seriously. πŸ™‚

Until next time,



New Moon in Aries March 2017

new moon aries pic

Hello, beautiful babies of life!

How are you doing? Alive? Well? Insane? Starting completely over? Unsure of reality? All of the above? Welcome to the Equinox, Venus Retrograde, and New Moon in Aries !!!

An equinox is always powerful energy because we are in the process of shifting out of one reality for the past few months into another. For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, we are in Spring. Renewal. Rebirth. Re-everything. For those of us in the Southern Hemisphere, we in Fall Shedding. Coming down off a high of life. Off the pulsating aliveness of summer. Both are okay. Both are allowed. This shifting of the seasons is natural.

Next up: Venus Retrograde. Venus is the planet that rules love and emotions. And when I say love I mean all love — not just romantic. Remember that romantic/platonic/friend/family/etc love is all the same; the ego just wants to assign value and rankings unnecessarily, like usual πŸ˜‰ When a planet goes retrograde, the planet appears to be moving backward (that’s an illusion, it’s simply #science) and thus the area over which this planet rules can feel out of whack or backwards or even old and oddly hecticly familiar. With Venus Retrograde, we have the energy of old shit coming up for us, especially in regards to our patterns of love and being loved with ourselves and others.

Finally, New Moon in Aries. The New Moon is always time to start anew and remember that we constantly live in a cycle of change and growth — no matter how much the ego wishes otherwise. πŸ˜‰ Aries is a fire sign, which guarantees intense energy right away. Of the fire signs, Aries is the most savage, the hottest and quickest temper, and the one who loves to shake things up the most. All of this combined with the new energy we are feeling adds a LOT of shit for us to be shifting through.

For this month’s reflective questions:

  1. With Venus Retrograde, let’s look at what’s being activated here. What’s coming up for you in regards to love? Not just romantic love. And not just with others, but also stories, patterns, habits, etc.
  2. Fire signs tend to like instability as they believe it is connected to adventure. With the New Moon in Aries, some of this wild out energy maybe be getting activated. This is good! But like all things, in moderation, as too much can become self-sabotage. Where are you possibly self-sabotaging yourself by letting go on control *too* much?
  3. Equinox and Aries want new and fresh energy. They love it. With this energy surrounding us, what can you do that is new and fresh to use this energy? A thought pattern? An action? A habit? Something you keep putting off?
  4. Looking at what you wrote for number 3, take this one step further. What goal can you set for yourself (yes, right now), that is based off what you wrote previously? Don’t get too crazy, just open up the energy for yourself to begin what Aries will help you start.

Have a blessed day, everyone! Sending you lots of love and fire. Talk to you soon!!


New Moon in Aquarius January 2017

new moon aquarius blog post pic

Happy first New Moon of 2017 and also Happy Chinese New Year! A lot of new energy as we sink into what it feels like to be in this beautiful creation year. Many of us are holding the freedom and space of 2017 10 year after a very intense (but freeing) 9 year. The space to have agency over ourselves and not simply react is what we have all desired, and it is here now. But that still takes some getting used to.

In addition to this, we hold Aquarius energy of this New Moon: energy of the water bearer, the humanitarian, the one who can carry, cleanse, and release the energies of us all. There is a need to connect while also washing clean. There is a need to forgive and release. There is a need to get back to the basics of love–but without judgement and with forgiveness.

This is a wonderful time to honor the doubt that is coming up for you as a sign you are on the right path. A sign that your ego is working extra hard to keep you small and keep you in your comfort zone (even if it’s not where you want to be). None of this can stop you. You exist beyond all of it.

Reflection questions:

  1. Aquarius is the water bearer. Water allows us to be washed clean and starting over with fresh energy and cleansing ourselves. What do you need to wash clean in your life? What do you need to release and forgive?
  2. After you have identified an answer for number 1 and given yourself permission to wash it clean, what do you want to do with that? What’s next? Where do you go from here and how do you move forward?
  3. Aquarian energy of water bearer is also the energy of bearing the emotions of humanity. Not in a self-martyr way, but in the way of being connected to everyone and everything and understanding your unique energy pattern is needed as part of humanity’s divine assignment. Tapping into this energy, how do you want to show up as part of humanity? What work do you want to do?
  4. No matter what the ego will tell you, no person who has ever lived in service from a heart-centered place has done that alone. Holding your mission clearly for number three, what relationships do you need to cultivate and focus on to make this happen? Relationships with self, with Spirit, with people currently in your life, with people you want to call in.

Blessings to you and yours! Talk to you in a few weeks.
