The June 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Gemini. The Gemini archetype is very curious, an excellent communicator, and a disseminator of knowledge. It is the sign of the writer, of those who tend to think deeply, are highly perceptive, and prefer to learn from experience.
Spiritually, the Gemini archetype is about courageous conversation, be it with another person or with the Universe. Gemini adds its vibration to the advancement of culture and civilization through conversation, be that via books or blogs or letters.Continue reading→

The April 2019 full moon rises in the sign of Libra, again! This is quite a rare occurrence, to have two back to back full moons in the same sign. Think back to what happened around the March full moon Libra. Whatever started then, will culminate now, for both of these full moons are connected.
The Libra archetype is associated with balance, fair dealings, and relationships. Spiritually, the Libra archetype can teach us about balance…the ability to remain centered in our authentic self no matter what is going on around us.
While the last Libra full moon asked us to focus on our rituals and routines and to align them to bring some balance in our lives, the April full moon asks us to bring balance with our relationships. And the key to this is focusing on our own self-worth and examining our life from a more personal perspective – what can be called a journey of individuation. It’s an ever spiraling journey, as we define and refine our meaning and purpose and come into right relationship with who we are and how we choose to shine our unique light in our interactions with others.Continue reading→
The April 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Aries and ushers in the astrological new year. The Aries archetype is fiery and action-oriented; on a quest to express its individuality and assert its willpower. I find shades of Fool energy in the Aries archetype – the innocence of taking a leap into the great unknown.
Spiritually, the Aries archetype teaches us what it takes to act on our dreams and desires. After all, it is easier to talk about the things we desire than to go all out and work towards the attainment of that desire. The key to taking action is courage – and courage comes from having your head connected to your heart.Continue reading→
The March 2019 fullmoon rises in the sign of Libra. The Libra archetype is associated with balance, fair dealings, and relationships. Spiritually, the Libra archetype can teach us about balance…the ability to remain centered in our authentic self no matter what is going on around us.
The March 2019 fullmoon highlights our health and well-being, as well as our daily routines and responsibilities. This is the time to take a look at where we are directing our time and energy, and to ensure we are creating routines and practices that support us on our journey and take us closer to our goals.

The March 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Pisces. The Pisces archetype is highly intuitive and very open to the flow of the creative imagination. This is the sign of dreamers and mystics and visionaries, which makes this new moon an excellent time to flex your creative and intuitive muscles.
The March new moon also highlights our creativity and pleasure. It encourages us to step out of logical thinking and enter into a state of playful enquiry. This is the time to adopt creative thinking, to lean into our feelings rather than be ruled purely by our rational mind, and to express ourselves creatively.Continue reading→
I’ve been down with a severe case of viral, coupled with a stomach bug from hell. It’s not been pretty. I’ve been grumpy. And I needed a distraction, and to write. But seeing as I was confined to bed, the only distraction I had on hand was my phone. Writing ideas, well….none. So I did what anyone would do – I hopped over to my Instagram feed, and scrolled down in search of some inspiration.
I found this image from a couple of months ago, and decided to use it to write. Here goes!Continue reading→
The February 2019 full moon falls in the sign of Virgo. The Virgo archetype is logical and practical. This is a sign that thrives on meticulous planning, on honing skills to perfection and gaining mastery over their chosen vocation. This makes the February full moon a good time to celebrate the areas where you are putting in concentrated effort, and to let go of any negative programming that tries to sell you short from living your dream.Continue reading→
The February 2019 new moon falls in the sign of Aquarius. The Aquarius archetype is radically individual, very strong-willed, and can be rather eccentric. This is a sign that is not afraid to walk to its own drum beat, which makes this new moon a good time to get clear on your own unique perspective on life.
After the powerful solar and lunar eclipses last month, February’s new moon presents us with a fresh slate from which to launch into the year. This lunation asks us to start at the beginning: with clarity on where we want to head and armed with a fresh mindset. This would be a good time to examine old thought processes and the limiting beliefs that hold us back.Continue reading→
I don’t know about you, but this year didn’t feel “new, shiny” in January. There was a lot of planning, thinking, and an easing in, at least for me. The only thing that really took off is my time at the painty table.
So when I saw these tarot cards for February, it felt like a “Hell, yes! Let’s get 2019 started!”Continue reading→
