"Without rain, nothing grows, learn to embrace the storms of your life"
Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces! This new moon falls on Sunday :)
Pisces is the sign of the fish and is a water sign. It is the twelfth sign in the astrological calendar. Piscean people are known for their intuition, sensitivity, wisdom, and compassion. Being a water sign, they have a huge capacity to express emotions and empathy, often showering loved ones with affection. They are creative and enjoy their own company, reflecting on spirituality and their own thoughts. They can sometimes struggle to be present as they are often caught up in their own world and imagination. They have an extremely trusting nature which can lead them to getting hurt.
During eclipse season last March we had a solar eclipse in Pisces coupled with a supermoon and then in September we experienced a lunar eclipse again in Pisces. Sometimes it can be helpful to reflect back to then and notice how our inner and outer worlds have shifted. We are now experiencing a solar eclipse which will close out this current eclipse season and provide the potency to further transform our outer world. The sun rules what is seen, what is material and the moon rules the unseen, our intuition, and subconscious beliefs.
The lunar eclipse earlier this month, in the sign of Leo, had us connect to our hearts. We have been immersed in the intensity of the eclipse window, slowly shedding and releasing our past way of being, while also embracing our unique light. With this new moon solar eclipse, we are witnessing the wisdom and fruits of our labour become manifest in this reality. Pisces is often referred to as the wise mystic. How has tending to the flame of your heart's spark shifted your reality? How have some of your subconscious beliefs been altered? I am really noticing some positive shifts when it comes to my relationship to my body with regards to shame and also with my relationship with food. I know that this transformation will unfold over the coming months.
Collectively we have shifted from the Piscean Age into the Aquarian Age. Pisces is depicted by two fish, this often manifests as duality. Things can be seen as very black and white. I think we are witnessing this crumbling paradigm on a global scale with the political climate. People are choosing sides and holding so tightly to their beliefs that it is creating distance and disconnection. We are in a time of transition and change tends to instill fear in people. Aquarius rules friendship, uniqueness, humanity. I think we will be experiencing this unsettledness for awhile. Don't despair focus on your heart, notice the sacred unions that you are a part of. Where are you witnessing people banding together, perhaps some instances of communities of people lifting one another up? Have compassion for yourself and others. Don't allow yourself to get swept up in old drama <3
My littlest dictator is turning 4 at the end of the month, on the day of this eclipse to be precise. This kid has 7 planets in Pisces, wowza! It's completely overwhelming to me at how fleeting the years have been. I am so happy to be finished the baby years. As much as I look back at those early years with nostalgia, I am a better person when I have a bit of freedom and some good sleep. I still watch my littles sleep, their innocence and vulnerability shine when they don't know I am watching. They are growing up so fast but are still so young. I have tears just writing this. How and why did these little souls choose me?! Parenting is the hardest thing I have ever had to do and I often feel like I am floundering...or at very best treading water. I try to remind myself that each day is a new opportunity and that we are all doing the best with what we have.
I still can't quite grasp that it has been a whole year of Lunar Love. It was at the beginning of March last year, during eclipse season that I started this biweekly journal. It has been deeply cathartic and healing to show up each new and full moon for myself. I am so grateful that you are a part of it, thank you SO much! In celebration of my first anniversary of these Lunar Love letters, I created an Astro calendar to further deepen and integrate the cycles and rhythms that are found in these emails. Details are listed below on how you can download your copy <3
The next Goddess Ceremony is happening Friday, March 17. Brooke and I continue to be humbled, amazed, and grateful for the courage and authenticity that each of you embody. There's such radical presence and vulnerability that unfolds each time we gather. If you would like to join us in celebration, you can purchase tickets for the March event HERE or click the graphic further down in this email.

This is my free gift to you as a way to celebrate one year of Lunar Love letters.
This calendar contains a legend with all the symbols so you can further attune to the lunar cycles and astrological happenings. My hope is that this tool will provide a deeper trust in your own intuition so that you can gain a deeper understanding of the heavens <3
Each month features original art work by yours truly. The main symbols at the top of each month reflect the sign that the sun will move into for that month. I added my recommendations for a crystal and essential oil to work with to further support each sun sign.
One card this time, The King of Cups from the Shadowscapes Tarot. This deck is in rough shape as it was one of my first tarot decks and obviously one that is well used. It's watery images just called to me for this reading <3
I don't think I could've picked a more fitting card than the King of Cups for all this Piscean energy that has us all diving deep into the watery confines of our subconscious. I am wagering that we have all needed more rest to integrate and cope with all this eclipse energy. Neptune is the planetary ruler of Pisces and it has a long orbit, which means we will be experiencing subconscious shifts right through 2020 until Neptune shifts into Aries. This card is all about embracing and balancing our emotions, creativity, and subconscious. He is the wise, majestic, and mystical ruler. This card urges us towards responsibility and maturity. This is integration of life's hardships and experiences that cultivate a depth of wisdom and grace. Are you ready to release victimhood and shame? That's the key to gaining control and sovereignty over your own life.
Last month I searched my house high and low and couldn't find any celestite. Shortly after I mailed out the new moon lunar love in January, I found my entire stash of it, HA! This is a crystal I deeply connected with during my last pregnancy with my littlest minion. It was a very stressful time for me as my husband was in a nearly fatal snowmobile accident when I was 9 months pregnant and my midwifery team decided to stonewall my home birth plans. It really was a wretched time where I was up against the same system that inflicted horrendous trauma upon me with my first son's birth. I had to advocate very strongly for myself and baby, and it was this crystal that provided such a sense of peace and pause amongst the chaos.
February is always a trying month for me because it is the month that marks multiple traumas and hardships for me. It was 6 years ago that I had an emergency appendectomy that was misdiagnosed as the flu. This ordeal led to my nervous breakdown, which actually paved the way for me to get the help I needed to heal my PTSD. Last year, I experienced bronchial pneumonia. This year, I am doing my best to take things slow, in an attempt to avoid relapsing into some hellish sickness or crisis, I am hoping this is me integrating my life experiences as wisdom ;)
Celestite is an angelic crystal. It is said to be the mentor or teacher of the new age. It has peaceful and soothing qualities that assist with transmuting emotions so that one can speak from a place of truth and integrity. The soft blue color invokes tranquility and strength. Don't let its soft pastel aesthetic fool you though, it is a stone from the celestial realms, and celestial beings are not afraid to display their strength and power if need be.
I also chose lepidolite, the purple stone on the left. I was shopping for crystals with my bestie recently and we both picked up different pieces of lepidolite to soak up some much needed healing. This crystal is my go-to for sleep issues and stress. It is the perfect companion for all of us feeling the intensity of the collective consciousness and all the planetary action we are continually bathed in. Calm, patient, gentle, protective, and ready to help you soften... that's lepidolite. The particular specimen depicted above is heart shaped, that makes me love it just that much more <3
I release old karmic beliefs and patterns,
Because I know that the past no longer defines me.
This allows me to integrate the wisdom
Of my lived experiences.
Making way for joy, connection, and hope.
