Leo Full Moon Eclipse: Be More Leo

I was in Hawaii with my husband, walking by the gift shop of our resort when I saw them: a precious group of hula dolls. My inner child went “oooh!” and I immediately texted a picture to my sister, saying “I would’ve died for one of these when we were kids!” I bought a doll for...

Saturn Transits the Third House: What Do You Know?

This essay continues my series of my Saturn transiting through the houses, which is, so far the twelfth, first, second and now third. I’m about 1/3 of the way through, and this is my current report. My second house Saturn journey appeared straightforward at first, but in hindsight not at all. The second house holds our gifts,...

Aquarius New Moon: Get Radical

It’s Aquarius Moon time –time to nurture your inner radical. If you think of rioters, hippies and uni-bombers when you think of radicals, you may be surprised to learn the etymology of the word radical comes from the Latin word radix, which means root. Radical literally means “forming the root” or “going to the origin,...

Cancer Full Moon: Follow Your Whimsy

Cancer is the sign traditionally associated with family, home and the past. And whimsy. Yes, whimsy. It’s our best kept secret, perhaps the secret to surviving emotional ups and downs. Whimsy is good for the soul. So when, during an emotionally exhausting stretch of days tethered to my house, due to heavy winter storms,...

Capricorn New Moon: The Art of Happiness

Imagine traveling to a land with no Sun. Travel far north enough in Norway and you will find yourself at Earth’s northernmost year-round settlement, called Svalbard, located right below the North Pole. Yes, that’s Santa’s North Pole. I spent Christmas there one year. We even saw his workshop. Which, for the still-believers, looked like a cottage nestled in the glacial...

End of Year Clearing

It’s here. The end. And what a year it’s been. There has been more death, and transitions of great magnitude than I can remember. My work as a healer has been taken to all kinds of different levels this year. On all, it’s been a demanding, rigorous year in terms of extreme change and adaptation....

Gemini Full Moon: Dark and Light

I was just turned away at the airport, from a much awaited trip to a handful of my favorite places: Vienna, Paris and Versailles. The ticket agent was unusually spry, warm and caring, a person you just feel good around. A good person for breaking bad news. As my husband prattled on about bag weight,...

Sagittarius New Moon: Culture Shock

Waking up the morning after the election was traumatic for many. It was for us. My husband turned over and said, “the last time I felt this way it was 9/11.” A component of trauma is shock and surprise, along with feelings of powerlessness. The shock was perhaps made more surprising because it was...

Taurus Full Moon: Spellbreaking

The world is a spell, an enchantment, an amazement, an arabesque of such stunning rhythm and a plot so intriguing that we are drawn by its web into a state of involvement where we forget that it is a game. – Alan Watts I’ll be honest, I was hoping the content of this essay...
