Sagittarius New Moon; Aim True

Sagittarius reaches out its arrow for us to grab onto, pulling us from the newly explored depths of our own inner ocean of emotion. We may be drenched from Scorpio’s waters, soaking in our new understandings that Sag now invites us to celebrate. We were in Scorpios sunless, obsidian valley and now we’re on Sag’s lustrous, carnelian peak, hopefully seeing from new heights and broader perspectives with eyes-wide-open. ☽ Scorpio is contraction while Sagittarius is expansion. Scorpio asked for emotional honesty so we could answer the archers call and stand tall in our truth. Before we can stand firmly in…

Honey, I’m Hand-rolled! Beeswax Candles For Sale

Hi all! You may remember my original hand-rolled candle pursuit from a couple of years ago; Candles That Make A Difference. A generous amount of beeswax was given to me and I began hand-rolling candles and sending 100% of the proceeds to Marley’s Mutts, a rescue organization near and dear to my heart. The sales from the local community generated nearly $500.00 that winter, all of which was sent to Marley’s Mutts. You can read more about it here. After that I was out of fresh out of beeswax and the endeavor fizzled out. However, this fall more beeswax was…

Scorpio New Moon; Doorway For Transformation

Scorpio takes nothing at face value and neither does this new moon. Like a snake shedding its skin, something from deep within impels us to move beyond outdated, outworn , or old phases of life. This cycle encourages us to surrender all that we have adorned ourselves with, to lay down all the jewels we wear to identify ourselves, all that we pretend to be to protect ourselves. Scorpio demands we leave our pretentious cover ups at the door if we are to take the deep dive into ourselves. ☾ This type of exploration requires honesty, rose tinted glasses aren’t…

The Colors Of Letting Go

Letting go is colored by our perception but it’s colorful none the less. Trees shed their leaves showing us that after all else has been stripped away we are still there, we can be reduced to nearly nothing, yet we are still there beneath everything we have adorned ourselves with. “Wherever you are, there you are.” There is something to be gained from loosing what has been so precious. This is the nature of the life/death/life cycle which is in natural alignment with the lessons of Scorpio season. Nature demands we let go of old forms entirely. A cycle ends…

Libra New Moon: Harmonize Inner Tension

The sun + moon are cuddled up in Libra, drawing the cosmic drapes, leaving us to slow dance beneath a dark sky. We recently transitioned from Earth to Air, Virgo to Libra. In North America we see the shift in nature as the air cools, animals migrate, and plant life begins to die or settle to seed. It’s the dance of duality, of coexistence, of life. Libra challenges us to to harmonize and find balance within the polarities of our existence. Life and death, light and dark, self and other, yin and yang. Libra is the part in all of…
