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.

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
