Chiron, The Wounded Healer Archetype

Chiron, The Wounded Healer Archetype

Throughout my life, I’ve faced many moments where I exhausted my resources and appeared to reach a dead end, where nothing more can be done. I reach the limits of my awareness; I have a blind spot. My search for clarity yields a half-wisdom that doesn’t quite emerge, not fully. The solution is out of reach. I feel utterly defeated. This is the path of every Healer. But, I digress. We will get to this in a moment. This type of experience used to happen quite a bit related to my health, with...

ARIES New Moon Prayer

ARIES New Moon Prayer

instead of confidence I want natural-ness the easy feeling of being myself, in myself comfort in my own body and skin doesn't arise from pushing into areas that cause me stress I seek a different kind of experience just as water, following her own riverbed, doesn't need to force, push or struggle she only needs to love the feel of the rocks sand sky and to rejoice in her own Abundant flow -Jessica Shepherd, author of Follow the Moonlit Path

April’s Odd Astrology

April’s Odd Astrology

It started out with a weird interaction at an award show; Will Smith gives Chris Rock a punch in the face for an inappropriate comment. And Astrologers everywhere ask: Was it the astrology of Will Smith, or is it the astrology of the moment? Both. The start of April is an odd blend of two very different astrological signatures. Let's embrace and LOVE our differences this week... as Mars and Saturn prepare to conjoin at 23 Aquarius (4/4) under an Aries New Moon (3/31). It may not be the time to...

Invite and Allow

Invite and Allow

(please enjoy this repost - from my archives!) I notice the more I focus on resolving or fixing anything, the worse I feel. It’s the law of what you focus on grows: Whatever obstacle I think I’m experiencing only becomes more solid. It would seem that a problem can only remain a problem as long as I believe it is one. The moment I can relax, accept, invite and allow a solution to appear, it either resolves itself, or dissolves entirely. Is it magic? Smoke and mirrors? When a problem ceases to...

Releasing Shame At Virgo Full Moon

Releasing Shame At Virgo Full Moon

Although I'm not a Virgo, last week I had an experience that Virgos want  to avoid like plague - I felt dreadfully unprepared. I made an appearance on my friend, Alice's, app but I didn't know how to use the darn thing. So, despite really wanting to be on my desktop where I feel comfortable and have everything set according to my needs, I got on using my iPhone, because I'm new to app culture and that's what I thought I had to do. Although I don't know what they saw (a harried woman with lots...

Pisces New Moon Card Draw: ARIES-PISCES!

I love the myriad ways this deck can be used. In client sessions, healing circles, ritual and intention setting, for personal integration work, and, of course, one of my favorites: lunar cycles.

Boundaries Do what it takes to feel safe and peaceful. One of the gifts of self-awareness is exercising your...

WHAT IS MY LIFE PURPOSE?

WHAT IS MY LIFE PURPOSE?

JUPITER-SUN CAZIMI: What's my PURPOSE? What am I here to do? And can you see that in my birth chart?   At today's conjunction of Jupiter and Sun you may be asking the Big Questions, about what you're here for, and what it's all about.   Given the week's odd Mars-Venus-Pluto dynamic of powerlessness/power, and feeling out of control of so many things, it's certainly gotten me thinking about my own sense of purpose.   No one knows why we are here or what we are meant to be doing here (if they...

Trust Life Again

Trust Life Again

Like you, my life as an artist began with paper and crayola crayons. Over the years it’s kind of converged, back there, to that innocent place again. Mainly because making art can be so intimidating that you never even try. In college, I became an art major not because of inherent talent or encouragement but because I was fascinated by the symbolism contained within the images of art (a precursor, certainly, to my love for astrology).Because I was curious as to whether I could make art, I took...

Your Identity Is Abundance

Your Identity Is Abundance

As long as you think you don’t have something, you won’t have it… This was the message Spirit shared with me this morning. I was in the middle of my reconnection practice when I asked Spirit to show me what it feels like to Root into my pelvic bowl, my Seat of Knowing, but I knew that behind that question was a sense of “What if I can’t do it…?” In knowing myself as a clear vessel for connection, one of the consistent issues I run into is feeling myself to be limited. Lacking… needing, wanting...
