Energy and Social Media

Okay, I admit it. I’m a scroller. Any time I feel that I have nothing to do, I pick up my phone and start scrolling on social media. It had gotten so bad that I took Facebook off of my phone in order to stop the madness. But then Instagram quickly took its place, and […]

New Moon in Gemini

Tomorrow we will celebrate a new moon in Gemini. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the exact time for the dark moon will be at 12:39 pm EST. My mind immediately started trying to figure out how to pull off a small ritual while I am at work, but I suppose just an acknowledgement […]

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 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 […]

Aries Full Moon

This Aries full moon energy has been nothing to joke about. It has definitely thrown me for a loop. Luckily I have been on vacation from my day job, so I have had plenty of time to travel down into the rabbit hole that it has created for me, in order to sort out what […]

Forward

Fear rises Linked to the unknown The unseen The unfelt As I caress this tiny babe’s head With caution and care I may mess up Can I go back? Back to the way it was before But then I remember The hurt and pain Of before. Confusion as one thing Did not work One after […]
