What is your biggest Catalyst for Change?

We have reached the end of Venus Retrograde but are still witnessing its effects playing out within our lives. The 6 week transit highlighted where our relationships were failing, our quality of life is low, and how what we allow may be out of alignment with our deeper desires. For many, it was a difficult 40+ days where sadness and anger were triggered, old traumas surfaced, and a mirror was held up, enabling us to honestly examine the sources of our suffering.

It has been a great reminder that we often wait for things to deteriorate or self-destruct before we address what we may view as overwhelming, confusing, or difficult to navigate.

 

We can all look back at our lives and recognise times when we shied away from an opportunity to address an issue, to set a boundary, or have a difficult conversation. We could have leaned into the challenge but allowed the drama to play out and grow.

 

This period has not been about finding the blame, but instead identifying the...

Are you able to embrace the gifts of Fire?

Hello fire dancers and soothsayers!  Who is feeling the power of the Fire Element at play this month?  Leo season has a unique quality that makes it particularly potent.  We are approaching a power day on 8/8 (the Lion's Gate), which is the same day of the New Moon, so even further amplified.  And we are between two Aquarius Full Moons, connecting with air, which feeds the fire as well.  For any of you waiting for a 'good' time to create, manifest, purify your self or your life, now is the time!

For me personally, the energy of Leo always reminds me of the term 'Lion-Heart'.  It is the culmination and combination of all that this season embodies...

Summer, heat, rejuvenation, burn, purify, inspiration, liberation, love, compassion, tribe, pride, courage, the Sun, royalty, nobility, regal, kingdom, sovereignty...

Here in this fiery portal, we have the capacity to bask in the sun, relax, and recharge.  Our muscles can stretch and...

What will you relinquish to set yourself free?

We have entered March, but are not quite yet marching ahead (that comes towards the end of the month)!

Here, in the final sign of the zodiac, the last of winter, we enter the end.  And the endings are up to you.

I see this time of year as a period between, not quite a rebirth, but a dying of sorts.  Death often evokes fear of loss, a degree of grief, as we release what is known.  But these periods of death invite powerful liberation, an opportunity to shed the old, to become more free.  We often strive for the new beginning, a new way to feel or live, but until we allow the old to die away, we are unable to fully embody the light and lightness or the dawn.

Allow yourself to take some time to immerse yourself in the waters that will wash away what no longer thrives.  Swim deep into yourself, into your dreams, your intuition, the aspects of you that fully understand your capacity to relinquish what has held you.  This requires courage, a...

THIS is THE Work. Are you living a Courageous life?

 

2020 has been a challenging, transformative year!  I am so grateful for all that has healed, and diligently working through whatever is still in process.

 

"Its times like these, we learn to live again"- Foo Fighters (cool video here)

I know that over the past few weeks, I've felt elated, excited, inspired, exhausted, frustrated, and everything in between.  In these moments of perceived chaos, I find myself reconnecting with the wisdom of Daring Greatly (below you'll see part of the speech by Teddy Roosevelt, and the image to the right will link to info on on Brene' Brown, who is a master of speaking about Vulnerability & Courage.  And you'll love her Netflix special, The Call to Courage)

I share the above info because I know that in times of evolution and revolution, the worst thing we can do is put up...

What do you permit in the name of Patience?

How much ‘patience’ do you employ before you hit your breaking point?

I think that most of us mistakingly allow others to take advantage of us under the guise of patience. Over the years I have repeatedly asked or begged for patience, wanting to feel calm and compassionate in the presence of abuse. I asked for patience with people who lie to themselves and the world, when I was delayed because of another’s choices, and when a friend began to push my boundaries, and then to shove against them.
I believed that I needed to be more patient in these situations, but patience was not the answer. The answer was courage. I needed courage to choose a response that would influence the dynamics that had become increasingly unbalanced.

I have listened to teachers preach the power of patience. “Be patient, what you have been asking for will come to you”. I believe that this works to the degree in which we can allow, and then it is up to us to meet the...
