  • Simple Solstice Rituals for Connecting with the Energies + Elements of Summer

    The wheel of the year, meaning the months and seasons within a year, corresponds with the phases of the moon, directions [north, east, south, and west], and is associated with each of the earthly elements [earth, air, fire, and water]. Here are some simple rituals and practices for connecting with the summer season.
  • A Post-Release Update: Intention In Every Step

    As I create these pieces, share them, and then witness you engage with them, my intention is that every step be imbued with an experience that feels like rest for you — a moment of pause to drink in some beauty inspired by nature. In honor of the offerings themselves and the many hours that go into their creation, and in honor of you, the one to connect with them and call them in, it’s important to me that they are presented with as much love and intention as went into making them.

  • Creative Over-Inspiration | What It Is and What To Do About It

    Maybe you’re like me and have notebooks of scribbled inspirations that if you were to actually pursue them all you’d be busy for lifetimes. It’s not a bad place to be, over-inspired, but it can also be energetically paralyzing. Here are some simple practices from someone who often finds herself creatively over-inspired on how to clarify and simplify your brainstorm of good ideas and decide what to say ‘yes’ to.
  • The Magic and Mundanity of Death and Grief

    After this past week, I know three things to be true: Grief is exhausting. Loss is a layered experience. Death is both magical and mundane. A new angel sits on my altar — Last Saturday, on May Day, I said goodbye to my long time animal companion. Here’s what I’m currently processing, the unexpected beauty I’ve experienced, and why grief is both nonlinear and ironically alive.

  • The Magic Of Tarot + My New Favorite Deck

    I’m pretty sure I wept a little when I first opened the box and thumbed through the cards in my hands. Each one, a visually gentle, tender expression of the deeply symbolic messages; the figures in them feel like old friends, grandparents, ancestors. The Future Ancestor Tarot is my new favorite deck to work with as it feels gently supportive at this time of great collective change and grief for so many things. To guide us, I pulled two cards from this deck for the collective — here’s what came through.

You could say Spring is having its effect on things around here, stirring the pot of ideas, shaking out the rugs of the mind, opening the windows of creativity; Hina Luna is feeling activated and inspired; a vessel open.
