Befriending Vulnerability

Befriending Vulnerability

Do you ever have that jumbled up feeling of frustration – and nothing you are doing seems to be working in the way you’d like? When this happens for me I often discover I’m not being honest about what I’m feeling. I’m not acknowledging my vulnerability. This impacts...

The 2021 Vision Board

The 2021 Vision Board

Vision boards are synonymous with a New Year, a time when we resolve to do things differently, and perhaps play with techniques to help us manifest what we want to happen in the coming year. Yet when a friend exclaimed, “Nothing on my Vision Board came true for 2020!”...

The Condition of Your Conditioning

The Condition of Your Conditioning

Sometimes it is difficult to see beyond what we have experienced in the past. This happens in everyday life. But also during eclipse season (which is now) I've noticed a higher frequency of the illusion of "history repeating". As unique situations arise, we...

How About No?

How About No?

After going retrograde from 9/9-11/13, Mars in Aries remains in a post-retrograde shadow phase thru the end of 2020. Translation-- in English, please? The astrology supports boundary work, understanding what they are, how they feel in your body. I’ve been working with...

Stress, Social Distancing, Taurus Full Moon

Stress, Social Distancing, Taurus Full Moon

When I saw this SNL clip (New Normal-SNL) the other night it made me think: Ah, yes, this is exactly what stress looks like under COVIN (yes, I know its COVID but you’ll get the joke when you see the clip). Meltdowns, and less resilience to stress and trauma, are...

It’s okay to outgrow a relationship

It’s okay to outgrow a relationship

Friends forever... 'til death do us part...or so they say. Bonds that stand the test of time are beautiful, rare and deserve to be celebrated. But not every relationship falls into this category. In fact, we'd save the world a lot of suffering if we all could just...

How I Come Back to My Center

The energies are intense out there right now. It is full on election season in the U.S., Mercury is retrograde in dramatic and intense Scorpio, the Libra New Moon is rather, ahem, interesting with Pluto and Saturn nearby, the pandemic... and really do we need another...

What Did You Love as a Child?

What Did You Love as a Child?

“What did you love to do as a child?” I asked my Leo Sun husband. He instantly replied: go to Radio Shack and get the battery of the week, then figure out where to use it. He loved leatherwork (he and I both. I, too, enjoyed visiting the Tandy leather store). He also...

The Mermaid and the Shark

The Mermaid and the Shark

Every birthday, a Spirit Animal chooses me. An out of the ordinary animal crosses my path in the time around my birthday. It’s a tradition I have. This year, though, after two years running of Black Witch Moth, I decided I would choose it, sight unseen. Two creatures...

Frustration & The Intuitive Self

Frustration & The Intuitive Self

Yesterday, looking for a spool of raffia ribbon I had *just* used, it was all too easy to become frustrated and tell myself I was having a perimenopause moment. That's what my critical mind told me. But I was actually in my Intuitive Self. It took a question to allow...

What I Do Now

What I Do Now

I’ve written 4 books, all of which feature astrology. I studied and practiced astrology for decades, and I was a professional astrologer for most of that. So, do I still offer astrology? And, if not, or if so, what do I do in a session, now? These are good questions....

Get Out Of Your Own Way

Get Out Of Your Own Way

I remember doing yoga in my thirties, when yoga videos were a thing. At the same point in the tape, during downward dog, the instructor would say “breathe… set the intention to get out of your own way.” At the time, I didn’t entirely understand that this was more than...

Doubt is the lie you told yourself

Doubt is the lie you told yourself

In Hawaii, we have relics of ancient healing temples called heiau. They can be found in various and unlikely places all over the islands –in the middle of a suburban neighborhood, at a beach, or next to a busy hotel – small groupings of volcanic rock, usually,...

I AM Human, I AM Divine

I AM Human, I AM Divine

I have off days. I have days where I am not feeling quite like myself. Days I fall into wormholes of conditioning, conditioning that I’m not sure I know how to work through. I have sleepless nights, nights where I awaken a lot and feel shitty. Nights where I just want...

Feeling Retrograde?

Feeling Retrograde?

I was talking with a friend about the cycles of eclipses we are currently experiencing, and had the chance to tell her about Saros cycles – the cycles that begin any given series, and then repeat for hundreds to thousands of years. For instance, this eclipse Saros...

The Role of the Healer (there’s nothing wrong with you)

The Role of the Healer (there’s nothing wrong with you)

Once, long ago, in a faraway land called Ojai, CA I met with a healer of importance. I had become friends with a client who invited me to a colleague’s house for a gathering. This spiritual teacher was visiting from India, and this event, created in his honor, would...

How’s Life in Your Fourth House?

How’s Life in Your Fourth House?

We’ve had a crash course in the fourth house this Spring, a class none knew we were signing up for, at least not consciously (though intuitively, many did. Look at the way, just the week before, you: knew to adopt a dog, get on auto-subscribe for toilet paper, take a...

Let It Be Simple

Let It Be Simple

Right-wing Christians say this plague is upon us because God is punishing us. Environmentalists, eerily similarly, say Mother Nature is sending us a warning, an ominous message. Conspiracy theorists say it all began with China, Bill Gates, or who knows what else (I am...

You Don’t Need to Know What Happens Next

You Don’t Need to Know What Happens Next

One of the weirdest decisions I’ve had to make recently involved whether I wanted to go to the grocery store. My regular grocery day came and I felt conflicted about THE MASK. I am not going to go into my little internal debate, but illustrate what I did about it. I...
