It’s Leo time!

FridasCourage

Having fun—however one does it—is indeed Leo’s secret. When you can enjoy life, and enjoy yourself in the midst of life, your problems shrink and your confidence grows. I’ve since learned how to tap into the gifts of Leo’s season. I now relish the opportunity each Leo month brings—to be more fully alive, doing what comes naturally, when I enjoy being me. May you enjoy what’s special about you this month too.

Aquarius Full Moon: Born Free

luna

As the Sun in Leo is joined by Venus moving retrograde (July 25 – September 6, 2015), it’s a particularly rich time to reclaim your true, creative, and loving self. The Full Moon in Aquarius urges you to look over the side of the boat and examine your reflection in the glassy, midsummer polar ice. Are you a restless lion, born free but now pacing in a cage of your own design?

Cancer New Moon: Call and Response

Hans_Thoma_Mondcrop

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.

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.

This message seems to be about shifting from the head to the heart, and doing whatever we can to save this planet before it is too late.

Painting by Johanna Uribes.

Venus goes retrograde every eighteen months. During these six weeks everything that Venus rules-love, money, fertility, and creativity–is vulnerable to wild, ingenious, or deluded thinking.  Perhaps you need to shake things up a little.  Venus retrogrades can do just that. However, do be cautious with your investments. Consider big purchases with care. And don’t take […]
