New Moon in Pisces: The Moon, the Mystic, the Dreamer and You

New Moon in Pisces: The Moon, the Mystic, the Dreamer and You


Take a deep breath, maybe a few, before answering these questions about how 2018 is unfolding so far. For some of us, the changes we’ve seen inside and out have come so quickly that we’re needing more rest and self-care to catch our breath. How about YOU?

What positive changes are you feeling all lit-up about right now? What would you like to be different?

We are in mystical, powerful times, my friends, and the Visionary, the Seer and the Mystic who dream the dream of Love are called to stand up and stand out.

This New Moon in Pisces on March 17th at 7:11 am MST has thrown many into their intuitive, feeling bodies, calling up some old stories and painful memories to be felt and released. With the freedom of this release, new longings are stirring, ones that the Dreamer, the Artist and the Lover of the Pisces intent know so well.

Yes, these ancient, archetypal Allies are here to help us remember the dreams we’ve placed in our hearts and show us the gifts we need to bring forth in ways bold and bright. 

The energy we’ll receive from this Pisces New Moon will trigger for many of us an undeniable call to envision a life that aligns to the highest good for ourselves and for all.

Some of you who can feel the pain and suffering of this world might ask, “How dare I call up a personal dream when the Earth is being poisoned, people are starving, children are being shot in their schools, wars are tearing nations and souls apart and people are being abused and violated?”

Soul-dreams built from the wisdom of the heart-mind lift us up to new spaces and places inside and out.

These human tragedies are why we need to dialogue with the Dreamer and Mystical Lover in all of us who see how to green the landscapes that have turned barren and black because others have forgotten the power and beauty of their dreams too.

We dream our world awake when we live our desires, the ones that allow us to be present to the wounds of limitation and separation as well as the medicine of love, hope, and compassion.

We dream because when we live our dreams, we become present and available to those we can impact within our reach.

THE DREAM I DENIED. It took me many years to accept that one of my guiding dreams in this incarnation is to live, learn and love in a romantic partnership. Because past relationships did not work out in the way my younger self hoped, for some time I believed I had to focus solely on fixing that person who had not found the relationship she had longed for her whole life.  A part of me used to feel guilty and ashamed for even thinking about relationship so much, throwing myself into my work much of the time, but I started to feel as if I were punishing myself. I remember the paradigm-shifting moment I woke up to this inner knowing that my dream of relationship was placed in my heart so that I could remember it and awaken to unconditional love through it because that’s what my soul in its unique human expression desired.

When we lift limitation and judgment from our dreams, we become dazzled by their Beauty and a new dance with life begins.

The people and things you love and the desires you have, each one was deeply seeded in your heart so that you would never forget. You are meant to watch them materialize right before your very eyes.

So, my dream-weaving friends, I must ask you:

What is the one dream you desire above any other,
the one that seems to have slipped through your dream-weaving hands
but the one that you feel you came on this Earth to touch?

I adore the Moon and her great illumination and wisdom ways. I have followed her cycles and worked with my dreams through Her for many years, setting intentions on the New Moon and releasing on the Full Moon what is no longer in alignment with those dreams.

The Moon can show us so much more, however, through a 29.5-day, full lunar cycle in which the ebb and flow of resting and moving forward, releasing and taking action can more consciously and easily awaken us to the New Dream in a way filled with love, wonder, magic, and joy.

My invitation to you, my mystical friends, is to choose a dream—one dream—that you have and you would like to see manifested.

Let’s track those dreams together through a FULL LUNAR CYCLE while we let the dance between the dark and the light, the yin (feminine) and the yang (masculine), show us how.

I’ve summarized the first four phases of how we can play with the natural rhythms of the Moon and deepen our relationship with her Wisdom and our ability to manifest skillfully and consciously.

  1. THE NEW MOON (YANG ENERGY): March 17th

    A dream cannot come true unless you have the courage to dream it into existence. You can start with these questions:

What is my DREAM?
What am I CALLING in?
How ALIGNED am I with my VISION?
What type of inner and outer SUPPORT do I have to MAGNETIZE my dream to me?
What’s standing between me and this DREAM?

On this New Moon, set your intention and declare your dream to the Universe.
This singular action lights up the path that will show the way.

We all know what happens to the seed that is planted but is not given the light, the water and the attention it needs to grow. Your dreams are no different. YES, have a dream, but planting the seed on a New Moon (or anytime) is only one part of the elegant equation to how a dream unfolds.

Onward we go.


    Approximately 48 hours after the New Moon, its energy has dissipated within a Waxing Crescent Moon. During this Yin time, we do not entirely stop ourselves from moving or acting, but we do spend more time meditating, visualizing, contemplating, and journaling with our dreams.

Loving Universe, show me what I need to know.

Open up the way for the Divine Design

of this dream of mine to move swiftly

and shine brilliantly.

We live in a world where achieving, doing and hustling are rewarded, luring us into thinking we must be living a fulfilling, lit-up life. Not so, and in working with the Divine Intelligence of Lunar Logic, these precious days after the New Moon allow us to have some space. The Universe is working on behalf of our dream, letting us merge with our vision, allowing the right resources and inspired action to come forth organically. 

Pay attention to the language of the Universe, the synchronicities and the serendipities—these universal love notes are whispering, “Hey Sweet Heart, here’s your next step.” January’s Full Moon in Leo blog has additional tips and insights into the elegance of this type of manifesting process.

During this phase of the Moon’s cycle, spend some time going inward and be open to holding the Divine Hand in its many forms of support for your intention. Take out your journal and track these messages from the Universe—they are there.


    This is the time when the dark and the light of the Moon are in equal measure. We engage with this Yang energy after having rested and tapped into Moon Wisdom.

Now is the time to see what other actions are indicated in moving ahead towards your goal. Take one, two wise, compassionate steps (big or small) in alignment with your dream. Note how the universe is responding to the actions you are taking. Maybe you need to make a phone call, travel to a new place, sign up for a course, look for a new job, schedule a meeting. The action may be scary, but it will feel right for you deep inside.

  1. THE WAXING GIBBOUS MOON PHASE (YIN ENERGY): March 25th to March 30th 

    The world does not need to change for you to realize your dream, but your internal world does

Yin time is in time.

As we move towards the illumination of the Full Moon, it is at this point we may think that the Universe has a waning interest in our dreams, but we must have faith and trust. We are evolving, preparing to receive our dream and how we catch our dreams is just as important as dreaming them. 

It is not a matter of faith; it is a matter of practice.

~Thich Nhat Hanh

We need practice in diving deep into the well of emotion and imagination, dreaming ourselves awake to the joy, the power, the beauty, the wisdom and the love of a new world.

Continue to devote yourself to a consistent daily practice to lovingly spend time, connecting and tapping into your intuition and doing things that bring you joy–maybe for you it’s reading, drawing oracle cards, hiking, painting, singing, chanting, affirming, journaling and dancing.

If the dream you are trying to catch will bring you joy, then your “work” to do in the present moment is to feel joy as much as possible so that you and your dream are a vibrational match.

During the phase of the Waxing Gibbous Moon, we can also take some time to reflect on what the edges are in our inner work. We might be dealing with doubt, rejection, sabotage, procrastination or self-worth. We might be feeling overwhelmed, making us susceptible to limiting beliefs, unsupportive habits, and negative self-talk. Know you have put your smaller self on notice and she or he will have something to say about you visionary dream. The Higher Self understands and knows self-compassion is needed while you are transcending what no longer serves. 

As a result of your self-reflection and commitment to your dream, you become clearer in understanding how to prioritize your life in alignment to the intention you set on the New Moon. Because we know ourselves and our values, authentic expression of our gifts, talents, abilities, personality and true nature becomes easier and truthfully, a must.

Spend these days leading up to the Full Moon in thoughtful action alongside inner contemplation. The Full Moon will call you to the next powerful stage of Her manifestation process.


I sincerely invite you to enter into a deeper practice of placing attention on your intention through the lens and the love of the Moon and Her cycles.

If you would like a witness to the start of this lunar dream-weaving process, please send me a note HERE and tell me what specific dream you will track during this part of the lunar cycle.

For those of you who want more direct one-on-one support with learning how to read and work with the energy, there are many ways we can make that happen, so please send me any questions you have.

In the meantime, happy dream-weaving! Check back here on the Super Full Moon in the relationship sign of Libra (March 31st at 6:37 am MST) and I’ll share Moon Wisdom and Guidance in the next steps of the Lunar Love cycle.

PLEASE COMMENT BELOW: Let me know you are here and what dream or vision for your life you are moving towards and what it is that most excites you and scares you about having that dream.

Each time you share your feedback and insights, we inspire each other. I also gain more insight into how I can fine-tune what I do to support you in realizing your dreams right now and not some far-away timelines that you see only when you close your eyes.

Full Moon in Virgo: How Do You Serve Love?

Full Moon in Virgo: How Do You Serve Love?

How do you serve love?

At the energetic core of this Full Moon in Virgo (March 1st at 5:51 pm MST), we have the opportunity to see that the Great Work we came here to do is realized when we seek an answer to that very question.

Some of us are unconsciously living the answer in our inner and outer life, but what if we all made this question a living, luminous part of our existence, the lighthouse in the ocean of our day?

Virgo, the archetypes of the Goddess, the Priestess, the Shaman and Mother Earth, invites us to explore what we hold sacred in this world and even beyond in our authentically serving what we Love.

In fact, the more we attune ourselves to Mother Earth and the receptive, intuitive energies of the Feminine, the clearer we seem to become about what our great work actually is.

And even though Virgo is the archetype of the Worker and the Servant, these questions, “How do I serve love?” and “What is my great work to do?” rarely mean “work” in terms of what we have been conditioned to believe “our work” must mean.

Your great work might be to paint pictures, create a food forest, write books, heal an illness, nurture a family, foster a dog, forgive yourself, forgive others, love your partner, love yourself.

Some of us might be feeling the inner stirrings of this need to know as we feel the fiery passion of the Aries archetypal path showing up in many planets early in March.

Infused with the energies of the Pioneer, the Initiator, and the Warrior for Love, this Aries spark will ensure you keep moving on the path of love and desire (your great work), releasing you from any limiting beliefs or old stories that stop you from believing your life can serve Love in ways you find breathtaking and beautiful.

This Aries call complements the Virgo heart path on which each of us walks as the fully individuated You. Paradoxically we are prompted to leave the personal ego behind to offer our gifts and service for the people, the animals, the land, the oceans and the communities to which we feel lovingly bound.

The transformation path of the Virgo intent is indeed through Service, and in the more exalted forms of the Servant, how we do this great work is just as important as what our great work is.

The Virgoan Taskmaster and Worker push and push to meet the deadline, get the job done, see the results now, but we are here for the long game and patience is indeed a Virgo virtue.

Reinforced by archaic systems and antiquated ways that have created a syndrome of “not enough,” many feel overworked and underappreciated, working overtime yet under-compensated.

Virgo also show up in how we love and respect our physical bodies, inviting some of us to examine our relationship to our physical form, peeling back the layers of conditioning we’ve been subjected to from birth, including toxic messages that our body must look a certain way for us to be considered desirable or valued. 

In seeking approval in whatever form our wounded Inner Child might need, this Full Moon may shine the light on the parts of us that feel we do not measure up as we’ve kept company with the Perfectionist and the Inner Critic far too long. 

Perhaps at one time, the Perfectionist and the Inner Critic kept us safe and we can thank them for that—maybe we needed them to help us recognize we must upgrade our skills, take better care of ourselves, ask for some support, raise our expectations, create stronger boundaries.

But eventually, if we leave them unsupervised, these judgmental energies have the power to stop the high romance with what or whom we love, by obsessively seeking flaws in ourselves or others, separating rather than joining us to what we find beautiful. 

The Full Moon is a potent time to ceremoniously release the judgment.

THE CEREMONY: The archetypes of the Priestess and the Shaman in all of us understand the power of ceremony. If you feel called on this Full Moon to release what stops you from living “the beauty of what you love” create a simple ceremony that does honour what you find beautiful. You might

drink a glass of wine with your beloved,
share a beautiful meal with your friends,
honour your body with some exercise or a walk in nature,
read out loud a mystical poem,
dance to some sensual music,
write a love letter to yourself or someone else,
creatively express YOU in a way you feel drawn.

If you are noticing what’s wrong more than what’s beautiful this Full Moon, feel the frustration and anger. Express it by writing your rage on the page, infusing those words with the energy of “no more” and “enough.” Burn the letter as an offering to the potential and the manifestation of living your great work, your beauty way.

Our life is not a race we have agreed to frantically run, but a dance with the divine within that stands as our unwavering partner seeking to move us to what we find true and beautiful.

Creating an inner practice and dedicating your life to unfolding your great work is one way you can powerfully serve Love in a time in which the World needs to weave a greater vision for us all, a vision the New Moon in Pisces on March 17th will call each one of us to dream.

New Moon in Aquarius: How We Heal Our Hearts

New Moon in Aquarius: How We Heal Our Hearts

Someone wrote me yesterday evening, asking how my Valentine’s Day was going. She messaged that it must be the most magical day for me.

I could see why someone might think that considering the foundation of what I do.

I gently laughed when I read that message, however. I had experienced a challenging day on Earth School personally and collectively.

The up and down journey of loving someone with cancer. Hearing about the mental and sexual abuse of a spiritual teacher, the physical and verbal abuse of a parent. People believing “I’m not enough.” The parts of me that believe “I’m not enough.” Addiction. Eating disorders. A mass school shooting–again.

It was much to witness and heartbreaking to feel.

And weaved within the fabric of my heart-opening day, the gentle power of my partner’s love, our renewed commitment to each other and our dreams, a vulnerable chat with my mom, pictures of my friend’s new baby girl, the sweet comfort of my inner practice, a message from a friend at the perfect time. Durga. Three hours to write. Messages from the Universe too big to ignore.

I cried a lot on Valentine’s Day, some sad tears and some sweet, the water on my face reminding me of the precious understanding that I can experience all this beauty and pain and still be FREE to love.

We are not immune to suffering, but we are FREE to be human, to feel it all and still stand for love and for one another.

This New Moon in Aquarius is about being that type of a Revolutionaryfor Love.

I know from the daily messages I receive many of you can understand.

Where is the beauty in your life right now? Where is it hurting, sweet friend? What needs to be freed?

This New Moon we are standing together, Friends locking hearts with Friends, so we can see the higher vision for humanity that Aquarius as the Humanitarian and the Spiritual Friend already sees.

Ruled by the planet Uranus, Aquarius energy goes into the places that need a shake-up and doesn’t consider much how you feel about it. Its intent is to get the job done. 

No spiritual teaching, no culture, no political system, no family member, no colleague, no religious authority, no lover knows our heart the way we do and how we came here to love.

But in a world of distraction and overwhelm, how well do we know and trust our Heart?

While Aquarius energy in its early development prefers to make decisions based on the intellect and logic (almost all of us have been groomed that way), the Heart is our gateway to our true understanding and our wisdom ways.

Your heart knows. Come back into your body with your hands on your chest, asking, “What do you know about love?

The heart is our inner radar that detects when someone else’s desires are steering us in a direction far from our heart wisdom and our remembrance of what it truly means to be free to love.

This Aquarius New Moon will provide that burst of energy to break free from something that is holding you back.

Let it. 


How this Leo Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse Changes Everything

How this Leo Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse Changes Everything

Full Moon. Blue Moon. Blood Moon. Super Moon.

In perfect Lioness fashion (the archetypes of the Star, the Performer, and the Drama-Queen), Leo gives us a lunar act we haven’t seen for over 150 years. In fact, just a few minutes after this Full Moon takes center stage in Leo at 6:27 am MST, a total Lunar Eclipse ensues.  

But what does it all mean? Let’s break it down, shall we?

·       A Super Moon is a full moon whose orbit is at its closest proximity to Mama Earth.

·       A Blue Moon is the second full moon we see in one month (Jan 1st was our last one).

·       A Blood Moon is a total lunar eclipse in which the Earth passes between the Sun and the Moon, creating a lunar dance of shadow and light that collapses the full 29.5-day cycle of the Moon to a several-hour period. What is the significance of this?  We have a glorious, greatly magnified opportunity to release what no longer serves our life, removing blockages, completing karmic agreements and clearing trauma, all which can happen immediately rather than years (or lifetimes). Interested? Heck to the YES.  

The Support is immense and promises not to hold back for those who want to see and hear and those who are ready to move.

At its core, this Moon is about power, creation and illumination, themes we will continue to see play out during 2018 as a new understanding of our personal power is emerging in the way we direct our lives.  

Eclipses and their effects on our awakening are powerful. The skies open and a portal of energy allows us to connect to the Star and Creator parts of ourselves that know anything is possible.

And while every person on this planet will receive this energy, those of us who work consciously with it will have the opportunity to deeply impact how our lives move forward and what we will consciously move towards.


TIME FOR COMPLETION. In your inner practice, meditation, or ritual ceremony, have a clear and focused intention about what it is you want to release. This is a Full Moon for COMPLETION.

What are you done with? What ways of being and living are you complete with?

TIME TO REMEMBER WHO YOU ARE. The Leo archetypes of the Queen and the King speak and their words become the law of the land—that’s how powerful WE are. Take some time to breathe and reconnect with the part of you that knows your divinity, feeling the warmth and joy of your own golden light.

Your beliefs, thoughts, emotions and words matter, each one a seed of creation. Therefore, choose wisely as they do reflect the world in which you live. 

TIME TO RELEASE. This Full Moon allows us the opportunity to heal karmic agreements, offering deeper levels of our sacred potential to be released, remembered and lived.

Where have you felt powerless in your life to create change?
Where are you hurting right now?
What emotional blocks remain, preventing you from investing in intimate relationships with others?
Where do you need completion in a relationship, in an old story, in money matters,
in overcoming a limiting belief?
Who do you need to forgive?
What do you need to forgive yourself for?
What agreements and obligations need to end?

ANYTHING can be transformed through the power of your intent. Are you ready to release any programs you are running that are attached to suffering or struggle?

Yes, suffering can serve a higher purpose if we mine the gifts of the painful experiences we have had AND please understand that we can create from a joy-filled, love-infused paradigm as well.

Write out your list of what you would like to release, what completions you are asking for and what areas are calling for forgiveness.

If you can, safely burn that list on the day or night of the Full Moon, asking for gentleness in the process of releasing and completing. Because we experience a full cycle of the Moon (full moon to new to full) within the eclipse, your intention to release and complete is exponentially magnified. Enjoy the freedom of your completions with the past.


Leo energy is connected to the element of fire, an energy that needs to express itself. Leo wants to shine–full on, full power.

Leo is here to mentor us in how to play with the creative process, a process we have come here to master, so we can know ourselves as the beautiful Creators we are.

Leo energy teaches us to let the archetype of the Child (our Inner Child) come out and play, for when the Child is allowed to shine, she teaches others, he models for others how to create through joy and wonder.

STEP ONE: IMAGINATION RULES THE LAND. What is it you desire? What do you want to create? Do you desire to embody prosperity consciousness, start your own business, write a book, have a greater impact in this world, find a romantic relationship, enjoy radiant well-being, fully express your intuitive gifts? What gets you excited, those juices flowing?

Write it all down. Your intentions expressed through your vision ignite the creative genius and the creative process in you. Are you willing to open up to this type of transformation?

Now take a moment to connect to your breath, infusing your body with the energy of the possibility of your vision and anchor the feeling—even for a few moments.

Understand that simply by you tapping into the creative powers of your imagination and having experienced the positive emotions generated by the simplest act of contemplating these desires, each one is available to you.

What takes us out of the flow of this process—even at the beginning stages—is our negative self-image. We forget we hold the energy of the Queen, the King and the Creator within us.  

We might not believe we are enough or do not embody the self-worth to think that these dreams could ever find their way to us. The discrepancy between the desired goal and the “reality” of a situation or a relationship feels too wide, so fear and self-doubt kick in.

Call on the courageous Leo heart of the Lion. Persist and commit to transcend this testing ground designed by our ego and our subconscious—and to do so easily and effortlessly.  Believe that you can.

Love yourself, love your dream. Be proud of your imagination—even if you are just in the beginning stages of what lights you up.

Leo, the archetype of the Artist and the Performer, likes to be admired for his creativity, her dramatic flair.  Delight in how creative you are. Again, sit in the wonder and the question of how your vision might come to you because it is possible. Go on to the next step.

STEP TWO: THE POWER OF A QUESTION. Since your imagination has shown you a vivid vision for your life, ask yourself with an insatiable curiosity: how is this possible?

Our mind loves to seek out answers, so it will shower us with ideas about how we can move towards our goals. Thank this conscious part of your mind that allows you the joy of brainstorming the possibilities.

BUT REMEMBER THIS ONE IMPORTANT KEY:  The conscious mind is the smallest part of the creation process, representing only 5-15% of what it is we actually know.

Since this part of our mind will look for the patterns in what we’ve done and what others have done, we might not see how we can narrow the gap between the dream and the reality. We may become stuck in the fear and self-doubt instead, throwing us even further off the path.

But at this point, we must remind ourselves who we are in this process–the Star, the Creator, and the Magician, who understand that fear is an illusion as much as it is a teacher, reminding us the real lesson is that the energy we are vibrating at will align us to our beautiful dreams.

Staying in higher vibrational states as much as possible and taking care to develop beliefs thoughts, and emotions that bring us joy and greater possibility are necessary steps in matching the energetic vibration of our beautiful, exciting dreams.

Like attracts like and when we can hold positive emotional states we are preparing the space to receive what we have called forth.

Engage in activities that bring you pleasure—the creative process is meant to delight you. A long bath. A luxurious stretch. A funny movie. A home-cooked meal. A conversation with a friend. A gym workout. A meditation. A thousand words of free-flowing, free-loving writing. Making love, making art, making music.

STEP THREE: THE POWER OF ACTION. Our conscious mind will have some ideas in what steps to take, our friends and family will be eager to share their insights, but the process of creation wants you to look at your options and what your emotions are saying about them.

When we are taking the time to connect to our Higher, Wiser Self in our regular inner practice, we begin to receive inspiration and intuitive hits about where to go, how to act and to whom to speak.

So we act—sometimes we move forwards, sometimes backwards. Other times we find ourselves at a wall we just can’t seem to pass. Our progress is now seemingly halted when we don’t hear back from a contact, we lose a job, we become sick, our creative gifts are rejected or a potential relationship abruptly ends.

Surrender to the process. Feel the gratitude that you live in a loving Universe who knows a kinder, more beautiful, more fulfilling way.

Go back to the Inner Drawing Board in your quiet time. Ask for the next steps to be shown, remembering the fact that you are excited about your dreams means they are possible. Pay attention to your feelings about the new direction. Whatever brings you joy and excitement is your next step. Take it. This is how you and the creative process roll.


This Leo energy has an affinity for accessing higher levels of consciousness—angels, fairies, and other multi-dimensional beings. This gift is amplified when you have a dream—higher levels of consciousness will show up to help you create your desires.

Use your imagination within a meditation to invoke one of these beings and ask for their support. (For example, in the New Moon in Capricorn Lunar Love note, I invited you to contact me if you wanted to learn how to invoke the Goddess Durga through a mantra, which connects you to her so you can ask Durga to illuminate the most direct route to your dreams.) 

Whoever you turn to in whatever way you feel most aligned, know that there is so much Universal Support out there for you.

Once again, our conscious mind in isolation is extremely limited in being able to see the vertical view of how to manifest a different reality, so surrender to the higher plan for your life, trusting that a benevolent Universe, your Higher, Wiser, Kinder Self knows a way that will far surpass your original dreams.

The Leo in all of us truly shines and serves when we understand that we are the creative process personified the moment we are born. It is our mission in this lifetime to remember our power, identify, develop and use our gifts to make a difference in this world. Otherwise, we spend our lives denying who we authentically are.

Your ability to live your life in joy, tapped in and turned on by your gifts and your talents are what the world needs now—living, breathing Teachers of radiant joy and Way-showers of just what it means to live your life in bliss.

This Super Blue Blood Leo Full Moon has the potential to show you how if you intend it to. 

See you on the next wave of transformation,

New Moon in Capricorn: Why the King Needs His Queen

New Moon in Capricorn: Why the King Needs His Queen

Dear Friends,

At every New Moon, we begin a new cycle of our personal and collective Dream, a chance to go inward to see what new seeds of intention we would like to plant and the renewal of our commitment to tending our own garden.

With this New Moon (Jan. 16/17) as well as five other planets in pragmatic Capricorn, this amplified, powerhouse energy holds many keys for us in how we harness the inner and outer resources to lead, innovate, teach and inspire our families, our businesses, and our communities to new heights now and for generations to come–our Legacy of Love. 

Capricorn embodies the archetypes of mastery and authority: the Wise Woman, the Parent (Father), the Elder, the President, the CEO, the Leader, and the Teacher, all focused on helping us realize our greatest human potential.

And while these representations of Capricorn create the need to be seen and to get things done, Capricorn has thrown on the suit of the Strategist to plan what is next for our global family.

And what all reports show, what all trends are pointing towards is that this New Moon is calling forth the Return of the Queen as much as it is the King.

In addition to the Masculine energy that instils the plans, structures and systems to move humanity forward, the King was meant to serve the Queen who holds the beauty of the dream. She knows that passion, intuition, wisdom, grace, compassion and tender love will render any single obstacle or person powerless over the land. A well-loved dream becomes the New Order when the Feminine walks with the Masculine side-by-side. 

There is no weakness in any man or woman who wants to give birth to this new paradigm of leading and loving through joy, through connection and intimacy, through creative freedom, through the exploration of the heart. In fact, it is the Call that has been made.

The old guard of shadow Capricorn Authority and Leadership are being dismantled. Capricorn’s fastest way to the mountaintop of deep fulfilment is to walk the path of Beauty.  In fact, Capricorn’s earthy agenda is to search for beauty deeper than the eye can see, illuminating radiant light in places where none shone before.

Yes, this Beauty Way, which honours truth and authenticity, may seem out of our reach for those who have experienced great suffering in the myriad of ways we hurt ourselves and one another, but on the path of Love, we are always lead to golden fields of light.

However, we must stretch beyond the consciousness of our suffering and our struggle to arrive there.

The Capricorn New Moon wants to show us how.


We release the old relationship between us and any need to achieve our dreams in a way that leaves no room for support, rest, joy, and delight in the pleasures of being human. The Authority and the Taskmaster in us are relentless in their desire to follow the old rules of the Game of Life.  And if they can, they will do it alone.

We disconnect from our need for others’ approval, showing ourselves and our loved ones what it means to be in choice and live the way of our own hearts.

We say goodbye to the teacher, the boss, the lover, the leader and the system that bullies, ostracises, demeans and judges us or anyone else. If we stay engaged in this type of relationship, we then at least know we are responsible for making that choice–and we can choose differently at any time.

We release any control programs based on fear and the false idea we are responsible for other people’s journeys–including family and friends–when they are on the same great path of awakening to their True Self just like you and me.

We understand that there is no competition, no jealousy, no need to outshine one another.

We release any past stories of people, places or situations that we believe are blocking us from levelling up to the next levels of ease, healing and abundance.   


We re-define what it means to be the Director of our own lives, keeping in mind the Legacy of Love we are here to leave. 

We step into the power of ourselves as a Divine Being who knows that Love is stronger than any experience of suffering we have ever had.

We have come here for the grace of the Sacred Medicine for the Sacred Wounds. Ask and it will be given and when others ask us how we healed, we will tell them

We create powerful love connections based on true alignment rather than shadow loyalties, false obligations or outdated agreements.

We take the time to reflect, to dream, to play as much as we plan, we intend, and we strategize. We go for excellence AND allow imagination and joy in the process.

We infuse our lives with wonder through a practice of gratitude and appreciate the depths of our emotional nature even when the tears are quick to flow. The Mystic Rumi reminds us why:

“This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.
Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.”

We allow the movement in our lives to give birth to the beauty that is wanting to emerge.

We balance how we lead and how we love, how much we give and how much we receive in each area of our lives.

We stay the course.

After we pass through this New Moon, we still have Capricorn transiting through Saturn (our Inner Teacher) until 2020 and Pluto (our Transformer) until 2024, both of which will call us to a steady, accelerated pace.

Those of us who commit to planting and sowing the seeds of this new paradigm, along with an inner practice consistent with creating a life enriched with love, joy, wisdom and beauty, will delight in the gardens that we grow.

It’s a powerful time of change we are living in and throughout this year, more focus will be given on how we are being called to invite Beauty in all her wondrous emanations to stand alongside us in this major point in our evolution.

In the meantime, if it is time and you are willing, call (out loud) upon the higher versions of the Queen and the King to be activated in your life, knowing you are committing to the inner Sacred Union where beauty and intimacy marry freedom and mastery.

May we all remember how truly powerful we are. 

P.S. One of my multidimensional (very Capricornian) mentors is the Hindu Goddess Durga, known for her fierce love and power as well as her focus and discipline. If you have a beautiful intention for your life, she will quicken the unfolding of it (or lead you directly to the inner and outer blocks that can be overcome), especially if it serves the greater good and your sacred ambition.

If you feel called to deepen your inner practice and work with Durga energy and the power of her mantra, please contact me HERE (or press REPLY on the email I sent for this Lunar Love Note [which you received if you are on the Love Matters email list]) and I’d be happy to provide you with an explanation of how I work with her and how you can too.

Full Moon in Cancer: How Love Finds Her Way in 2018

Full Moon in Cancer: How Love Finds Her Way in 2018

When I look at our collective Love Map for 2018, the astrological compass is clear: we are being asked to move in the direction of taking greater risks and exploring bigger horizons in our journeys as souls.

But before we set sail on this 365-day adventure, I have a question to ask you:

How vulnerable are you willing to be for true love, for beauty, for service,
for impactful, empowered leadership?

2017 was a year indelibly marked with the Sagittarius stamp of the Truth-seeker and Truth-teller who showed us in our personal and shared experience where we could no longer tolerate a lie, opening our eyes to a more honest path that our souls have been longing to walk. 

Many of us now possess a clearer understanding of ourselves—what we love, who we want to become and why we would be willing to crack ourselves open in the ways we are being called. 

2018 is the year to choose to align to these bolder, more beautiful visions that will receive massive support from many higher sources including the celestial support of Capricorn, lighting up each conscious step along the way.

With the Sun (our Fuel), Venus (our Love Language), Saturn (our Inner Teacher and Guardian Angel) and Pluto (our Transformer and Uplifter) all in Capricorn now, these dreams will become earth-bound realities once we build the solid foundations and the support systems to let our visions unfold.

We will not be building our field of dreams alone.

Capricorn, embodying the archetypes of the CEO, the Strategist, the President, the Father, the Elder and the Circle of Grandmothers, will provide us with many opportunities to transform how we serve, lending us an energetic hand to evolve outworn and harmful systems, groups, structures and foundations that have affected us personally but even more importantly collectively.

It’s a year of liberation on every level.

But you may be wondering what does this have to do with the Full Moon in Cancer sailing in on January 1st at 9:24 EST?


As always the shifts in the outer begin on the inner and with the Sacred Feminine energy of the Moon and the Cancerian archetype of Mother Love and the Nurturer, we are asked to go within like we have never done before.

This deep bow to the Feminine will allow us all to drop in and dream, to lead and to love from a place of compassionate, wise stewardship and most definitely from the heart.

This feminine energy is not weak by any means. Truth, clarity and fierceness live in Sacred Love.

Part of this transformation and growth calls us to have more resolve than ever to learn how to meet our own needs, understand what nourishes our soul, and be willing to self-love, self-soothe and self-approve with greater depth and consistency.

While those of you reading here are already great lovers, we are still a hungry tribe.

In our own world and in our own ways, you and I may resonate with and strive to embody the Cancerian archetypes of the Kind Teacher, the Awakened Human, the Compassionate Giver, and the Empowered Empath, but many of us did not receive the nurturing and nourishment we needed in key areas in our early childhood (as well as other incarnations) to fully show up in healthy, empowered expressions of these archetypes.

Emotionally and spiritually, we have some deep places in us in which the archetype of the Anorexic has shown up, creating a hunger inside for which our soul intuitively understands how to nourish.

Are you familiar with this hunger? Take a minute, if you will, to feel into this archetype to see if the Anorexic has been active in your life.

Do you hunger for Requited Love, the unconditional support of a Friend, or irrefutable proof that Divine Energy is working on your behalf?

Are you hungry for rest, for rejuvenation, for renewal?

Do you eat, drink or smoke as a way to fill an emptiness inside? 

Are you intently searching for a sacred quality such as Beauty, Grace or Peace to infuse every cell in your being? 

Are you hungry for change in the way you relationship to money, desiring prosperity over poverty consciousness?

Maybe your life by all accounts seems great. However, you have been eagerly searching for that next level of opportunity and service that will call you to new learning, new experiences and new challenges?

The Anorexic likes to keep her thoughts, his feelings private. The over-extended Giver in you might say everything is just fine the way it is, but the Impassioned Leader in you knows differently.

What are the costs of not feeding the soul? Open up and speak your truth—out loud and to someone you trust.


We have come to learn how to be master manifestors who dream beautiful dreams and are capable of actualizing them on the earthly plane. This Full Moon is our invitation to lay down the old ways, release any small loves and smaller visions we have. In their place, ask for innovation and inspiration in how you can love, serve and share your gifts in ways that allow you and others to experience beauty and joy.

But sometimes we become lost and choose less nourishing ways to take care of ourselves. 

The food, the drink, the entertainment—they all have their place, but at times, we get hooked in and we bypass education for entertainment, mindfulness for a manic schedule, clarity for chaos, and soul talks for sensationalized gossip. It takes time for the heart to grow strong. 

What do you desire to feel and experience instead?

Before you write out or revise your 2018 dreams for your personal and professional lives, take some time to do the inner-visioning in which you contemplate where the Anorexic is active and then take her hand, his arm up the steps to the elevated station of the empowered, loving Nurturer.

The ability to pull the plug on our Martyr or Victim story that a deep wound might have created and then meet our own needs is like throwing a boulder into a stagnant pond. The ripple effects of self-reliance and self-care transform the belief that we need to look outside of ourselves to feel fulfilled or secure.


Mind. Spirit. Body. In each of these areas, where can you bring more balance and nourishment in your life? When was the last time you felt nourished, emotionally satisfied and fulfilled?

Be honest with yourself. Tune in to your needs. Call in the courage to look at your life in every area in the name of truth and love. We often engage with the little problems, but when we avoid the bigger issues, our relationships and our well-being suffer in the long-term.

To truly love your wounded parts, be braver and more vulnerable than ever in attending the parts of you that need to be fed in a way that only soul food can truly nourish.

When you know, share with your family and friends what it is you need from a place of true love rather than self-absorption or co-dependence. The more you tune into the energy of your emotions, the more you will understand if the Victim, the Co-Dependent, or the Addict is making the request.

Burn, baby, burn. What are you ready to release?

In my book A Year of Lunar Love, I outlined a fire-burning ritual in which writing and burning a list of thoughts, behaviours and experiences you are ready to release acts as a catalyst for inner change that calls forth new blessings, inspiration and serendipities aligned to the new dreams and your ascending self.

Know thy future self. We have all heard the saying, “Know thyself” and the importance of knowing what is true for us by exploring the many layers of who we are.

However, we can simultaneously create a compelling vision of our Future Self and then take consistent steps to lean into that future self right now. This simple love-practice nourishes you in the present by generating excitement and gratitude for who you are becoming as you move into your next levels of your greatest human potential.

Create a daily inner practice. Cancer as the Empath knows the way back to radical self-love is an intuitive, deeply feeling process. That soul food we are seeking is found on the inside, where the guidance system is most accurate when we learn to deeply listen.

Commit to a daily inner practice that allows you to connect with your soul through meditation, an energy process, drawing an oracle card, dancing for joy, for love or for freedom, reading inspiring literature, journaling, chanting, repeating a mantra—there is no one way.

Start with even five minutes twice a day—once in the morning and again in the evening. If you can’t commit to ten minutes a day to give your soul dreams the nourishment you need, you then might ask to see how and if the Anorexic or the Saboteur is playing itself out.

Rumi has been in my Inner Kitchen these holidays—his poetry is my soul food. I was reminded in this excerpt from the poem “The Sunrise Ruby” (translated by Coleman Barks) the rewards of a consistent inner practice.


The ruby and the sunrise are one.
Be courageous and discipline yourself.

Completely become hearing and ear
and wear this sun-ruby as an earring.

Work. Keep digging your well.
Don’t think about getting off from work.
Water is there somewhere.

Submit to a daily practice.
Your loyalty to that
is a ring on that door.

Keep knocking, and the joy inside
will eventually open a window
and look out to see who’s there

Your friend and eternal trail-mate,
Jenn xoxo
