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...

Scorpio New Moon: Instant Transformation

I’ve often believed in the power of instant karma. I’ve seen it in action, too. The idea that what goes around can (relatively) instantly come around, makes sense to me. I trust that life is ultimately fair, while knowing I may not fully understand what that means yet. But instant transformation is a harder sell.  Excepting...

Protect Your Energy

It’s autumn in the Northern Hemisphere. Just as the leaves of the trees dry up and fall to the ground, autumn tends to bring drier skin, cooler weather and more exposure to wind. Our natural tendency is to bundle up, to protect our selves from the elements, to spend time “under wraps,” under warm covers,...

Aries Full Moon: Center Your Energy

The debates have been difficult for everyone to witness. They say this is the darkest, nastiest presidential campaign of our modern history. As sensitive people invested in keeping our hearts soft, open and aware, how do we stay informed (which in large part includes at least tracking what’s happening) without being pummeled by the negativity we witness?...

Libra New Moon: Good Things Await

I once knew someone who had some very real obstacles in life. She just couldn’t get a leg up. It did seem like life was hell bent on throwing her curveballs. Nothing she tried, and she tried a lot, was working. This had gone on for years. One day I sat down and had...
