Mother’s Day appreciation for Mom and Mother Earth!

Happy Mother’s Day! It’s my mom I have to thank for being here and while it certainly can’t even begin to repay her for everything she has done for me, it feels only right to dedicate today’s post to this absolute angel on Earth!

Pep talk! Please remember there is softness in the world

Just a gentle reminder tonight:

There is still softness in the world. There are still people who love and who want peace and who care. We have golden light and a beautiful moon and skies that change color. Flowers are sprouting up from the earth like they’re singing to the sky. We still have sunshine and bird songs and a great big planet to stand on as we hurdle through space.

The experience of being at this world can be beautiful and terrible and everywhere in between. There is a full spectrum from the best to the worst of things available here. Please choose softness and sweetness and love when possible. We have enough harshness all around us. May we find solace in appreciating the parts of our world worth celebrating. Though we cannot come together physically, we can unite in gratitude for each other and the world that we inhabit. We are so lucky to have each other, we are lucky to be here, and we have the strength to hold out hope for a more deeply interconnected future with ourselves, each other, and our planet.

I say all this because I know sometimes it is easy to forget! We all experience concern for the future, but please don’t let that rob you of the present. Focusing on what we want to see in the world will help us collectively manifest a happier reality. I believe in you, I believe in me, and I believe in the world, no matter what.


Venus over the sea

Just a little story tonight…

I always admired the super bright “star” that is first to appear over the western horizon… until I quite recently learned it was not a star at all – it’s Venus! I couldn’t help but feel a bit of a thrill as I realized that from my point of view, she hovers above the ocean, and even shines through my west-facing window. (My Venus is in Pisces – it feels oh so right!)

Moving towards the May 7th full moon in Scorpio, there is intensity building in the air. The energy of Venus glistening in our sky is passionate, fiery, and driven by love. If you are feeling a lot right now, it is certainly appropriate. Now is the time to connect with the passionate loving energy inside of us so that it may guide us onward. We can feel all kinds of things, but as cheesy as it may sound, the most important is love. Keep on shining your light to the world in any way you can, Venus reminds us. That is what you came here for!

PSA: the earth needs a hug

I hope everyone had a wonderful Earth Day! If you’re still here, it sounds like it went pretty well! A thought occurred to me the other day, and at first I dismissed it as a stoner thought, but after more contemplation I realized there’s something to it. The earth needs a hug!

A chill channeled message

Hello fantastical friends! This is for anyone who needs a sign right now that everything is gonna be okay. Coming down off a dream cloud, I am carrying a message from the universe to you!

Life isn’t about “will I be here tomorrow?”

Life is, “I am here NOW.”

I know it’s easy to get carried away in the what-ifs, but don’t let that take you away from the only thing you ever really have: being here right now. Don’t worry about what you will be, just BE. Don’t worry about how many breaths you’ll get to take – just take them. Every breath we take is a gift, not a promise. The dance of life revolves endlessly through cycles of becoming and unbecoming; it is how it always has been and always will be. By being here, you are being and breathing, and that is what you came here to do. So let yourself BE! That is what you came here for. As Ram Dass would say: BE HERE NOW.

A flower appreciation post

Hello!!! Happy springtime!

I hope you’ve had somewhat of a chance to hear birds singing and watch flowers blooming! Out here in San Francisco, flowers are popping up everywhere, even my backyard! Hopefully you don’t have to go too far to see at least one flower nearby! And if you don’t have any flowers in your life right now, maybe get an airplant. When super happy, they produce colorful flowers that last a long time, and they are super easy to care for. Check out my Stricta Moonglow, and more flower appreciation after the jump:

Add these witchy rituals to your routine for more self love!

How are you hanging in there, magical friends? Staying luminous and celestial, I hope!

Everything has been A LOT lately, and as vague as that sounds, I think you know what I mean. We’ve been alone with ourselves, we’ve been staying in, we’ve done some shadow work, and we had a major moon moment recently. That heaviness in the air I mentioned yesterday is definitely still present. During the waning moon, especially in the aftermath of a supermoon, it is often helpful to do a bit of withdrawing into oneself for some much needed inner nurturing. Tonight I am offering a gentle sprinkling of little witchy rituals you can work into your routine for more self love every day.

Super Pink Moon?!?

No, it’s not a reference to my butt!

Tonight into tomorrow we will be experiencing the biggest, brightest, and most epic full moon of the year! This full moon will move to its closest point to the earth in its orbit, appearing extra huge and magical. (Hence the term “supermoon.”) I wish I could tell you it’s also going to turn pink, but that is just a term for this time of year’s full moon, named after the pink flowers that tend to pop up in early spring. Still, the Super Pink Moon is a powerful phenomenon, and a perfect opportunity to come together (in spirit) and raise our collective energy to contribute to a world in need. You are cordially invited to join me in a Super Pink Moon blessing ritual to help add healing peaceful energy to our atmosphere!
