Grounding Myself

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been super-anxious with all of the Coronavirus information swirling around, the uncertainty of what will happen from day to day making it hard for me to concentrate on anything but the news. After five days of feeling my nerves stretching thin from all of that frenetic […]

This, Too, Shall Pass

The title of this post may seem flippant when it comes to the subject of the Coronavirus, but I promise you it is not. I have been very on-edge for the past four days over the Coronavirus. I have a huge addiction to news sites and social media whenever we are in the midst of […]

My Herbal Path

You’re probably wondering what the above picture has to do with an herbal path. At one time I did too. I started my herbal path by taking some small courses with the Herbal Academy of New England.

THE Voice

What an amazing time of year. I can’t get over how magical everything has seemed lately, but perhaps that is less about the time of the year than about the journey that I am moving into. Whatever is causing this feeling of wonder, I hope it doesn’t stop. It is a very blessed thing, being […]

I’ve only done calendula-infused oil before now, but about a month or so ago (because my method is so […]

The Non-Linear Nature of the Tarot

I’ve had a tarot deck for a year or so now. I’ve gotten it out to explore it quite a few times, but for the most part I’ve been overwhelmed by learning card meanings. So I don’t get it out as often as I want to, because I really want to learn how to read […]

Full Moon in Taurus: Reframing the Story

The full moon in Taurus is upon us today, and brings into focus our foundations, home, friendships, and partnerships. This came very fully into focus for me when I contemplated how much I have contracted when it comes to authentic connections with the other people in my life. As humans, we thrive on connections, and […]

Slow Medicine

A Mars-looking plant, perfect for Scorpio season. Last month we entered into Scorpio season, which is during the height of the fall season. The beings of the earth are moving inward, the trees are letting go of their leaves, and with the veil being thin, it has been a time to commune with ancestors and […]
