Call and Response: Cancer New Moon

winter solstice1crop

It’s easy to call in Cancer. Just find a safe place and come to stillness. Let your weary mind go, as if you were dropping into a cool bath on a hot summer day. Sink into the good that sustains you. Cancer is a water sign—its energy is fluid, cleansing, and receptive. Water sign cycles are particularly sweet for making tender connections with loved ones. They’re auspicious for spiritual practice too; whatever you sit with now can be more deeply absorbed….

Floating in the Ocean of the Moon

MoonOceanTidesCrop

You are lying on a remote, sandy beach. It is dawn, and a silvery Moon is descending into the horizon. The hushed roar of the ocean permeates the air, filling your ears with the sound of creation. The air is pungent with the smell of seaweed and saltwater. It is the gentle hour of the ebb tide, and as it seeps in beneath your body, you feel cradled in the loving arms of the ocean. Lifted up off the sand, your body rises and falls with the waves.

Cancer New Moon: Listen to Your Fairy Godmother

Left_600

During the first half of July, Venus, Mercury, and the Sun in Cancer square off with uncompromising Uranus and Pluto, calling us to take a hard look at our feelings and family life.  Sit down and quietly ask: What is my fairy godmother trying to tell me? What am I really hungering for? How well am I caring for my deeper self’s needs?

3-Minute Moon Ritual

Ground your body, clear your mind… Become aware of your body. Notice how gravity holds and connects you to earth. It’s as though your body is an ancient stone temple—solid, strong, secure. Sanctify this temple. Imagine a priestess is pouring sacred water and scattering rose petals, all the way down, from your head to your […]

Ask the Goddess

Dear Aphrodite, I love a guy very much; he knows my feelings for him, but he just keeps saying “I like you” and “I don’t want to lose you.” His changeable attitude towards me confuses me; he always calls me if he needs advice or help, or someone to understand him, but he has a girlfriend. I don’t understand what to do. The times we spend together are some of the happiest moments in my life. Maya

For several weeks this spring, a shouting Donald Trump made fun of the way Hillary Clinton was shouting. He complained that her voice was shrill and it hurt to hear it. All politicians shout. But women know exactly what it means when they’re accused of being shrill. It’s code for “Your strength is unattractive.” Recently […]

Attractive woman over the cloud world map

Have you ever found your self in a relationship dynamic that you didn’t want to be in? Ever find your self, wondering: How did it get this bad? Was it the leaky faucet we neglected to fix?

The Wheel Turns: Solstice Full Moon

At Solstice, Father Sun enters Cancer, the Mother’s sign. We become more motivated to secure our foundations, to root ourselves, to connect with intuition, our deeper way of knowing. What are you nurturing now? Perhaps there’s an acorn in your hand that’s hoping you’ll commit to the oak it can become. Cancer is the season to commit more deeply to yourself and important projects!

Sagittarius Full Moon: Wise Pilgrim

littlerose

I’ve been ignoring current events to the best of my ability for some time now, but the occasional atrocity slips past the goalie. I heard about what happened in Orlando and Oakland, I’m aware that Britain is deciding whether to leave the EU, and I’ve gotten the memo that the US Presidential race is just about as awful as one could imagine.

Ask the Goddess

Dear Luna, For the past seven or so years I have grown to really have a problem with organized religion, especially Christianity. It all seems like a bunch of fear-based BS used to control people who don’t have a mind of their own. And no matter how hard I try I just do NOT understand how a guy dying on a cross somehow saves my soul or takes away my sins!?! My family attended a Christian church while I was growing up but nothing much sank in…except for the “fear of god” stuff.

There are often horrific events during Mars retrogrades. The Mars impulse–always in danger of getting dicey–comes more easily unhinged during these weeks.  Events in Orlando just last week are a heartbreaking testament: Christina Grimmie’s murder, the Pulse nightclub massacre, and the alligator who grabbed the little boy on a Disneyworld vacation. Bad things happen all […]
