I meant to get this up over on the astrology page during the full moon, but again I'm a bit behind...  I created this image from some of the photos for the next Bohemian Collective lookbook just for fun for the full moon...  (better late than never, right?)

If you haven't already, go checkout Aquarius Nation's full moon report through her video and written reports.  They are still very relative and its not too late to watch and read them... Don't forget to read your sun, moon & rising sign for the written reports!  And if your on a cusp on any of those, read both!  I personally read Taurus, Gemini, Cancer and Leo when she puts these out. 


transit reading courses

I'm so excited to share this with you guys!  My dear friend KV from Aquarius Nation is going to be offering transit reading courses.  Have you ever wanted to learn how to read your own astrology charts?  Well now is your chance!  She is offering it is 3 stages, each a month long, and has a companion book to go along with it.  (You need to order it by TODAY to insure it arrives before the course starts!)  Go check out the page she has set up with all of the info you need to learn more about this course!  I'm beyond excited to take it myself.  I wish something like this was around 15 years ago when I began to really get into my personal astrology.  You can buy each course separately, so you don't have to pay for it all at once, which is super nice and makes it alot easier to afford.  I really hope to see some of you over there!!!  I think this would be an amazing christmas or new years gift to give yourself, as we march into this new year, letting go of our past and our wounds and coming into a beautiful new reality.

AND I know we have fallen behind the past few months on the New and Full moon astrology videos here, but we are getting back in the swing of things!  Head on over to the KV Moon Phase Reports page to see the new FULL MOON video for today, which has all of the individual readings included at the end.  Set aside some time tonite for the full moon to watch it, and if you want, at 7-9 Mountain time there is a group Activation call going on.  You can get details about that here.

The past two days Ive had very shady internet on top of my blog completely not opening for me... which in a way is very fitting for this new moon period.  Although it did frustrate me b/c I really wanted to get the new moon info posted on the KV Reports page yesterday, I was not able to.  So PLEASE just go straight to KV's You Tube channel and watch the New Moon in Virgo report as well as your individual sign reports, and if you want to go deeper, watch your rising sign and moon sign as well.  My blog just started working again and I'm about to be baby sitting for the rest of the evening so I just wont have time to get it up otherwise.   

The night before last I spent some time in my stick teepee as the sun was setting.  I was going to journal, but I ended up just talking out loud to the universe instead.  Which ends up being better than journaling for me most of the time.  I spoke my heart, asked alot of questions, opened my heart for receiving and then pulled some cards.  Which all ended up being major arcana, which doesn't happen very often.  Needless to say it was a long, intense reading.  Then I got shooed away by the deer.  Two days in a row I actually made the deer in my backyard upset by being there.  I think they were just being overprotective b/c they have young right now and one actually recently died somehow.  So, I went back inside so they could have their peace grazing in the field without worrying about me.  If only they knew I would just be their best buddy and cuddle them and give them food!   

Then last night I took a long soak in the tub and re-read The Skeleton Woman chapter in Women Who Run With The Wolves.  I love how the book is broken up into stories that you can go back and re-read.  This is one of my favorite stories in the book and one that really helps me alot when I start to feel frazzled in relationship of any kind.  And it being the new moon, the time of darkness, it felt like just the right time to read this chapter again.  I relate so deeply with the stories in that book, and can identify them all in my own life one way or another.  Such a sacred writing.

This new moon has been full of ups and downs.  Really the past couple of weeks.  I have found myself more irritated and frustrated than usual over very little things.  Very re-active.  Which is one thing Ive been trying to examine within myself, especially in relation to James.  But the good thing about these shadow aspects coming to the surface full force is they are in your face, bold and identifiable, so that they can be examined and learned from.  I am in a huge space of shedding more layers, letting go of toxic threads Ive held to people from my past, moving away from fears, allowing an opening to shift, and seeing all of the dark corners residing up inside me, just waiting to be plucked out, so I can sew up the energy leaks they have created in my soul.  This is an pretty dark process, but one I feel is going to happen quicker than I think this time.  My heart is preparing for a new phase in life, a huge shift in what is familiar.  Scary, exciting, and the work must be done. 

For tonite though, I am going to honor my moontime by laying on the couch with James, a movie and our friends baby.  Hopefully, the baby agrees.

For last nights full moon, I spent some quality time with myself, which is what I do most new and full moons.  Whatever feels right for the moment, usually consisting of quieting myself for reflection, inner questioning, and just simply being within myself.  Last night I took a long bath, soaking myself in Gypsy Moth Sol's bath salt and sugar scrub, and listened to my full moon readings from KV.  It was quite intimate actually, sitting naked in the tub, watching her as she poured out words that felt so true to the core of what is in my heart right now.  Things I couldn't quite put my own tounge on, she weaved throughout each vein in my body with effortless connection.  I always feel this way when I listen to her, but this setting felt so much deeper, maybe because I had not one distraction, and the vulnerability yet safety of being naked and in water.  I think this may very well be my new ritual. 

Then I got out and made myself a cup of my special tea blend from Whole Body Alchemy, which feels like a birthday gift each time I have a cup since it was created just for me and no one else.  Truly a warm hug feeling.  Then I gathered a few things I felt called to for the moment, which included sweetgrass, dove, stilbite, apophylite, adventurine & orange calcite, and my favorite tarot deck.  I keep pulling the same cards over and over, for months now.  Its becoming quite an intimate relationship.

These moments with myself are so sacred to me.
