This New Moon in Virgo is an invitation to get really clear on what you want and what needs to heal in order for that to happen. We have Mercury Retrograde in Libra at the end of the month, so we’ll have plenty of time to reflect on what inwardly needs to shift so that as we begin big forward motion in October, we’re ready to take that next big leap.

As Mercury enters his pre-shadow period we’re in an information gathering phase. …

If 2020 was about tearing down the structure, 2021 is about figuring out what the hell kind of structure we want to build. How can we radically shift our lives so that we can build something that supports our deepest desires, our authenticity, our truth?

The answer is to throw everything you think you know out the window. Sure, you can have ideas and dreams, but don’t hold onto the vision so tightly that you miss the bigger picture, don’t let your little human mind try to control the outcome.

Get curious.

Act as if you have no idea what…

We’re in a time of immense change. Everything we knew is no longer… and it’s not over. With winter comes death, letting go of anything certain and a kind of transformation different from any other season.

If anyone knows about the cycles of change, it’s Persephone. In Greek mythology Persephone is both floral maiden and Queen of the Underworld. She knows the cycles of death and rebirth, the changing of the seasons and she finds beauty and purpose in it all, especially in the darkness of winter.

She spends her time during fall and winter in the Underworld with her…

Today we have a new moon in Libra, a sign that represents balance, equality, and relationships. But what exactly is balance? Do we ever find true balance in life? And how do relationships play into this?

balΒ·ance (noun): a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions β€” Oxford Languages

β€œBalance is having the right amount β€” not too much or too little β€” of any quality, which leads to harmony or evenness.” β€”

A blending together of different parts, to make a whole. This is what we aim to do within ourselves. Finding the…

Pluto is stationing direct this weekend, having been retrograde since the end of April. Pluto represents evolution, transformation, the process of diving into the depths of our own psyche, letting the old fall away, then emerging, reborn, transformed, new. It’s not a one and done process, we go through many transformations throughout our lives. This year however, everything is amplified and the transformation we are experiencing both personally and collectively in 2020 feels like one we have been waiting lifetimes for.

A fire is being lit underneath us, urging us to really look at what we’re doing in this world…

Just yesterday, a new discovery on Venus was announced. β€œTraces of a rare molecule known as phosphine have been found in the hellish, heavily acidic atmosphere of Venus, astronomers announced Monday β€” providing a tantalizing clue about the possibility of life” β€” Bill Harwood, CBS News

More research must be done, but NASA is now turning their attention to Venus, the only feminine planet out of the 9 major planets in our solar system.

β€œVenus has been ignored by NASA for so long. It’s really a shame.” β€” Sarah Stewart Johnson, planetary Scientist

β€œIt’s time to prioritize Venus.” …

This is one hell of a fiery moon. Depending on how we are focusing that energy, we can either end up feeling anxious and frustrated, or motivated and fiercely passionate. Most likely, we’ll fall somewhere in between, flip flopping between uncertainty and wanting to create from a deep place within.

This moon is so divinely supported for creating and manifesting. Leo is associated with the heart, passion and creativity β€” it’s asking us to dig deep and let our hearts explode in passionate yearning.

If you released all limiting beliefs and self doubt, what would you dream for yourself?


β€œFreedom is not being for or against an ideal,
but creating your own existence from scratch.”

β€” Glennon Doyle, Untamed

August begins with a beautiful and powerful full moon in Aquarius. It’s the first full moon after a series of eclipses and it is launching us forward into huge change. It’s a moon asking us to step up, step out of our comfort zone, and step into who we truly are. To listen, and hear the whispers of the Soul. When we trust, when we choose ourselves, life becomes the most beautiful exploration.

Aquarius is a sign that honors our…

We have back-to-back Cancer new moons this season. The first was a new moon (solar) eclipse on June 20/21, and this new moon on July 20/21 is the second. It’s an encore, a reminder of what came up during the last new moon, and that we aren’t done quite yet. The doors are wide open for ancestral healing and shadow work during this new moon. Getting really raw and honest can help you to move forward with less entanglements from the past.

Cancer is a sign of our ancestors, our roots. We come into this life carrying more than just…

We’re in a tear down phase.

It’s not a particularly pretty or comfortable place to be. It’s messy, sometimes frustrating, filled with chaos and set backs. But eventually the demolition ends, and we’re left with a clean slate. Of course when we’re talking about structures that have been in place for hundreds of years or longer, it’s a huge process. A process with many ups and downs, breakdowns and uncertainties, but with the potential to build something greater than what stood before. We’re moving into uncharted territory and that is both exhilarating and terrifying.

This weekend we’re heading into the…
