Lunar Samhain & Letting Go

Nothing teaches you the patience life requires better than life itself.  A basic axiom that even kicking and fighting each of us are tasked to learn: Letting go. That is the medicine I am finding myself practicing this week, as we enter the stillness of the lunar reset, the void chaos-rest space of the balsamic…

New Moon to Lunar Lammas, Healing the Feminine in 2017

Ahhhh, friends. What a year, no?  Our first moon cycle in 2017 inaugurated a man as the leader of our metaphoric house who bragged about the exploitation and objectification of the female body.  Our values supported this. The normalization of exploitation in this house is unacceptable. The female body.  The female body.  The female body….

New Moon of Spring :)

The dark is the power of the feminine, as death is the power of life. The dark moon, before she peaks. This is the feminine in her essence. Without the light of the sun, which is the light we see nocturnally reflected at us via La Luna, she is who she is. NO MASKS. Nothing…

Lunar Imbolc

Lunar Imbolc comes early this year, overnight! It is the New Moon in Aquarius, and is a tide you began to feel when the moon entered her last quarter or wane towards the dark moon, which happened Tuesday. This is the first seed or sap rising moon, when the subtle momentum of life force starts…

New Moon: Imbolc-tide on the earth path & in Laguna Canyon!

In every place I’ve ever lived I’ve made habit of going out walking.  The funniest walk habit that just pops to mind is in Easton and wild crafting out of people’s manicured or otherwise front lawns.  I got sick I guess from chemicals once.  Here in Laguna Canyon if I go out walking that can…

Women’s Mysteries: Winter Solstice and the Dark Moon. Hope.

Today’s New Moon, around 5:30pm in California, marks the end/start of a new cycle. In addition, this evening the sun reaches its furthest point from the earth’s Northern hemisphere, granting the shortest amount of daylight, the longest amount of darkness, and our entry in to winter. We know this as the Winter Solstice. On the…

Fall Equinox & New Moon

    Tonight at 10:29 on the east coast is the Autumnal Equinox.  Light and dark are equivalent.  I am here on the East Coast, honoring my bounty with wide open eyes.     The wind blows here in Pennsylvania with a giant sweep like the angels have a push-broom going shhooshhh shoooshhhh shooooshhh because…

California, you used to make me brave

I am thinking about you, California, you used to make me feel brave. I stopped on a side-road outside Santa Rosa to eat tacos.  There was a sale on RedBull which is all I drank.  It was after a weekend making love with a pot grower on a secret coast hidden by the North trees….
