Are you ready for the first blue moon, total lunar eclipse in 150 years (in the Americas)? Pretty exciting stuff! We started January 2018 with a full moon on the 1st, and now, here we are again. So let’s start with the facts:
What makes this a ‘Blue Moon’:
When there are two full moons in a calendar month it is commonly called a “Blue Moon”. January 2018 stormed in with two full moons, but sadly February will have none. :(
The last Blue Moon occurred in July 2015, but 2018, we'll experience two of them, a phenomena that won't happen for another 19 years. (The second Blue Moon this year will occur in late March.)
What makes this a ‘Super Moon’:
A super moon occurs when the moon is full or new, and closest to earth. The full moon on January 31st will be the third full super moon since December 3rd. The full super blue moon on the 31st will pass through the earth’s shadow, giving us a total lunar eclipse.
A Blue Moon combined with a Super moon is rare. Super moons generally only occur once every 14 months and will not happen again until January 2019. The last time all of these events occurred simultaneously in the Western hemisphere was 1866. You remember 1866, right? The US House of representatives passed the 14th Amendment - The Civil Rights Act, Andrew Johnson was President, and Jesse James completed his first robbery.
Wait, Isn’t this also a ‘Blood Moon’?
Lunar eclipses are always interesting, though the "blood moon" is a much rarer event. Instead of a total eclipse, the moon is bathed in a red-orange hue of refracted light coming from around the Earth. Although some people think of this as a bad omen, but according to Indian mythology, a red Moon is luckier than a regular Full Moon. (We will discuss this further in this months Full Moon Class.)
What this means for you:
Full moons are times of awakening and completion, and everything is magnified. January 31st is a powerful time to recognize the amazing opportunities before you and celebrate your recent success!
The upcoming moon will be the regal sign of Leo. This moon will foster and increases your desire for strength, equality and good things. Some people are calling this event “The Superwoman Full Moon” - this full moon will emanate special and rare feminine lunar energy, infused with the creativity, leadership, and dignity of fire sign Leo.
This moon is also about ‘who you are’ and who you are becoming. You will probably find yourself more willing to try new things, be more open and honest about your true feelings and feel more driven to be the best you, during this powerful phase.
And heads up Empaths!
It’s likely this coming full moon/lunar eclipse, will bring heightened sensitivity and more intuitive dreams. Eclipses affect our personal fields just as they change the earth’s electromagnetic energy field. So expect to extra intuitive and more emotional than normal. Overall, this will be a dramatic time for most people as the lunar eclipses bring up emotional and internal issues to be examined and healed.
If you want to learn more join us for the Full Moon online class. There will be a guided meditation, pdf of best stones to use during the next 28 day cycle and of course a deeper forecast.
Can you believe it's December already? This year has just flown by!
So how are you? I hope well, but I just wanted to let you know it's okay if you aren't.
We are finishing out a turbulent 2017 with a Mercury Retrograde, plus the stress of the holidays and most of us are already on overload. The good news is that the Mercury energy will bring up past issues for us to work on, but of course that's the bad news too!
Just remember healing isn't an overnight process. Past hurts resurface when we are ready to further heal them. But no matter what, allow yourself time to heal. Also know it's okay to feel the way you feel. Actually its quite a paradox, but when old wounds resurface and you realize that they never were fully healed, they will then begin to heal. Sometimes just the act of acknowledging these past traumas and allowing yourself to feel your feelings is enough to trigger a huge, multilevel healing.
So plan on including self-care time in your schedule this month. If you want to know more about Mercury Retrograde I recorded a video class here. You can watch the 30 minute video and learn what each sign can expect in terms of lessons. Also I have a video going up shortly on Youtube, in the meantime you might want to watch the Tips for Highly Sensitive People Video for extra holiday support.
Stay warm and take care of yourself. And remember you can't pour from an empty cup, so to give your best you need to take care of you too.
In this video I use cards and intuitive guidance to give you an overview of what to expect for the next 30 days.
Are you ready?
It's time to heal past issues and take action!
What the full video for more.

How are things? I just wanted to remind you that the July Full Moon is fast approaching. We celebrate with a "Full Moon Mini Master Class & Forecast" For the past 3 years I have been doing a monthly class that has evolved from just a forecast to so much more. The classes now include a new guided meditation each month, a list of astrological events and a handout covering what gemstones and crystals best work with these situations. (Plus an in depth overview of the next 28 days.)
It is part astrology forecast, part intuitive information ~ with a sprinkle of fun included. (You know how much I love to laugh!)
If you can't make the live call, no worries everything is recorded and available for download.
Why a new class every month?
Every month has its own particular energy and challenges. Why not use this to your advantage instead of blindly hoping for the best? The goal is to help you understand what cycles you and your loved ones are going through. And also what could be creating drama or opportunity in your life and how to best navigate the challenges of this ever changing energy. If you read your daily forecast on line, then you know that at times it can be rather "far fetched" - that's because it is using a broad, general overview. In these Full Moon classes I give you the information on what is really going on.
Did you know there was a best times to start projects, move, begin a relationship? Yep, the stars influence us a lot more than people realize.
If you want to know more - here is preview of a class I did in March.
I hope to connect with you in the next live class.
The June full moon will be the "smallest" moon this year, and will look somewhat Amber from it's position in the night sky.
The sun will be in Gemini as the moon will be Sagittarius - making for a new, fun loving surge of energy. To learn more, including which gemstones and crystals to work with during the month, check out the FULL MOON Mini Master Class and Forecast. Each class is held live, online and recorded for play back. It also includes a new guided meditation for releasing and a PDF of gemstones to work with during the 28 day cycle.
I have been holding these classes every month for the last four years. We track cycles and energy trends as the planets move through their orbits. The planets and the moon affect people, places and events more than you might think and by watching these heavenly alignments you can pick the best times for starting new relationships, projects or taking a vacation. This isn't your normal horoscope, this is astrology coupled with intuitive guidance.
To learn more check out the class or send me an email to day.
Encase you have forgotten:
(January was a long time ago!)
2017 is a 1 year.
One years are about new beginnings and creations. So are you being called to create a new life for yourself? Perhaps a new career or a new relationship? We are almost 6 months into this year and the changes keep coming!
All of this is natural, but if you are feeling fearful (also natural) and resisting you may find yourself being PUSHED by the Universe. We change in order to grow. But if you resist, the Universe will push change on you in order for you to alter your course.
How do you handle this? Relax, breathe and know you are not alone. Also it's a good idea to up the self care and self work with meditations, affirmations, and energy healing sessions. Any healthy habits you can put into place now will really help ease the additional stress associated with these changes.
Also Jet, Labradorite, Chrysocolla and Tree Agate are all good stones to work with in times of change. Remember this too shall pass and soon you will be embarking on new adventures!
Hello fellow star gazers,
It's that time once again! Our old friend Mercury has gone retrograde from April 9-May 3, 2017.
When Mercury turns retrograde we have a tendency to become nostalgic, are more accident prone and miscommunications run rampant. This is a time to check and recheck our calendars, make follow up phone calls and leave early for appointments.
Should you stay home? Cancel vacations? Hide under the bed till this cycle ends?
No, but you should use caution, pay attention and set your intentions. But you should do those things every, single day.
This is actually a very good time to turn your focus inwards and sort some of your personal issues.
This particular retro cycle will highlight money, love and relationships in a more practical way, due to other planet activity. It also is an excellent time to clean out closets, donate to charities, examine expenses and review your personal goals. Auditing your investments, both in money and in people, is also favored during this period. I talk in depth about this retro in the April 2017 Full Moon Forecast. If you missed this months class it is was recorded live here. The audio recording is 40 minutes long and full of information, tips and predictions for the next 28 days.
If you want a more personal look at how this energy is going to impact you directly, then try one of these Mercury Readings. Each personal reading is done via email. The private, PDF is usually completed within 24 hours of placing your order. You simply submit the person's name you want the reading for or a particular question you may have and we will do the rest! Using cards and Angelic Guides a roadmap for the cycle will be crafted for you. My favorite reading for this pivotal time is the "What Needs to Be Cleared" reading. It is helpful in making the most of this extraordinary energy.
Mercury Retrogade should not be feared. We should use the lessons this cycle brings forward to start a healing process and make the most of this momentous energy!
The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world.
