Full Moon in Sagittarius

We are just days away from the summer solstice and have a full moon in Sagittarius. This full moon feels especially powerful for me as it falls on my birthday June 17th and the same day I will be arriving in Croatia. There is a major energetic portal at this time giving an opportunity for an upgrade. Sagittarius is the sign of travel and freedom, this true freedom for expansion and upgrade. It is so kismet that I will be travelling on this full moon and know that this trip was always destined for me to up level and create major shifts. It is an opportunity for anyone to up level with these energetic shifts. 

This portal energy gives us access to higher versions of ourselves, that is if we decide to step into it and embrace the worth that was always within. It is a sacred time to unearth our deepest authentic desires and truly believe that we can have them. In this high frequency we can access higher realms. Discernment is key in this time as the energy may bring overwhelm, but if you can stay grounded yet open to this mystical layer you can access intuitive avenues of your life you have yet to discover. Listen to the soft whispers you can and meditate. Allow your body to then integrate all this new information, what is coming in will be a higher realm of consciousness and will take much earthly energy. Ritual, rest and rejuvenation are all essential during this whole week. It will start on the full moon and continue to the summer equinox so it could be wise to write down everything. Like a puzzle you will have to put together the subtle signs you will receive all week through dream work, mediation and synchronicity. 

A ritual you can do on this full moon to activate this higher energetic portal is a dusk meditation. Find a space where you can marvel at the beauty of the full moon. Take several deep thoughtful breaths in as you look at the moon and let your mind focus on the breath. Once you are in a zen-like state with the mindful breathing and still looking at the moon, ask your guides/universe to bring in a message or ask a specific question. This can also be a request to receive a prophetic dream that night. Once you have asked the question listen for a moment for what may come in. If you have a notebook with you, you can write down anything that may come through, a thought, a word or a sentence. A good way to know if it is your guides sending you a message is that they will be direct and kind with loving words. You may also at this time go into a meditation to slow your thoughts and let the magic of the full moon bring portal energy to you. Thank the universe for the guidance. 

I hope you are celebrating this mystical time, beautiful shifts await us. Happy high vibes! 

June New Moon

newmoon.jpg

It is gemini season and my birthday month! Being a gemini sun and moon and not to mention libra rising means I am all air. That means I am usually floating around in the cosmos and makes it harder for me to stay grounded in so many areas of my life, but especially relationships. Can any of my fellow air signs relate? I am a dreamer through and through which is so beneficial for my creative life and gives me so much vision. Plus I love communication in any capacity, I love more than anything to get into a spiritual conversation or really get to know your essence through words. To put this ability into practical use I have learned that my spirit needs earthing!! I need to feel the earth and connect to nature and that is what creates the ground work for my beautiful visions and my communication, bringing me back to the soil. And all of this directly relates to the upcoming new moon which really showcases the power of words.

The new moon on June 3rd is in gemini! This new moon calls us to remember that our words are sacred, our words are our wands, then have the power to create our reality. Gemini energy can be intense, it could make your mind swirl with thoughts and it definitely likes to create stories! I am a storyteller by nature and this has been a great asset to my writing but has also contributed to the stories I tell myself. This is a really good time to evaluate those stories, what are the shadowy stories you are telling yourself and how can you focus on moving the energy instead. So when a negative story comes up for you can you notice it and just focus on the feeling. Allowing the feeling to move you, but do not give the story power. Instead write a new story!!! That is something we can control and even if it doesn’t feel true yet we must practice to make the new empowered story a truth. Use the new moon to write yourself beautiful new stories as the energy of the new moon will super charge your words. Your words will become magic, honour them, bless them and feel it all. You are so loved and so worthy as you are.

I hope you have an amazing new moon and I will be hosting a new moon party on June 4th, all of the details can be found on the ritual page.

xoxo and happy high vibes!


New Moon in Joshua Tree

Happy New Moon from Joshua Tree. I am so thrilled to be spending this new moon in my favourite place and for a wedding celebration of one of my dearest. This new moon really feels special to me and is a symbol of all things love. It is the new moon in Taurus, a great sign of beauty and stability. Look at where Taurus shows up in your natal chart and this will guide the direction of the new moon for you. My Taurus is in Venus and that is no surprise there as I am literally being bathed in love and witnessing the purest of soul partner love at a wedding in Joshua Tree. For me this is a beautiful example of holding the energetics of love. Aligning with my soul partner has really been on my heart this year and this very new moon is the greatest sign for that. You can hold the energetic space for what you want to create by those who you surround yourself with and the actions you take, how can you create an atmosphere of love to bring more in?

This new moon is all about change, the courage to take that leap for change, to put yourself in uncertainty to align with the certainty that the universe holds for you. The breakthrough and great joy is found in taking leaps for your soul, to follow the heart pings you feel that will lead the way. For me that came in the form of a road trip through America, beginning at a wedding (ritual) in the desert. Tonight I honour the energetics by continuing the love ritual created at the wedding. You can hold ritual for anything you desire and it is a way to announce the change you want to create, announce the start of your uncertain path. There is beauty to be found at the end of that courageous leap, what does life have for you there.

Tonight in the Joshua Tree National Park I will be lighting candles, offering flowers and blessing this perfect new moon moment with the sunset.

Happy High Vibes, xo

Full Moon in Libra

moon4.jpg

Hello Full Moon!!! How is everyone in this Aries season? I must say for me and maybe its a gemini thing but this Aries season is working me to the bone!! I actually was burnt out this month which I haven’t gone through in a long time and I know it is because right now I am calling in a more expanded and elevated life while transitioning out of my old life and stories, hence the growing pains. Aries is a force and is intense and powerful, there is no time for second guesses right now. While I transition into this new energetic portal I have felt a sense of being more introverted and just getting work done. It is important to honour those seasons and I know that it is all worth it for the experiences I am about to have.

A big part of this expansion and portal upgrade will be my travels to Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah. I have felt called to these areas for so long but for various reasons my plans always fell through. I tried to plan a trip there on 3 separate occasions and it never flowed, even one trip was pretty set in stone and still didn’t happen! Through all the energetic work I have done I knew that it just meant it wasn’t the right time. As I learned from a trip to Hawaii over a year ago, you really need to be spiritually ready to enter some of these places. I will be travelling through Sedona, Arizona which is known to be an energy portal and now I see that my soul is ready for that experience and that is why I am going in May. I will be creating some travel guides to all these high vibing places and cannot wait to share my experiences with you on the blog, my instagram and upcoming podcast!!

Now back to this full moon energy we have today. We will all experience it differently depending on where we find Libra in our chart. This is the pink full moon as we are in a season of spring flowers. Libra is ruled by Venus and this full moon is about romance and partnership and collaboration. It taps into the side of libra that seeks beauty and pleasure so get that salt bath going or have a fun night out with friends, you may even stumble upon a new romantic connection. This full moon can also help you manifest soulmate love as it did for my bestie two years ago this day on a sailboat in Savannah. You can use this full moon energy to call in that partner, even if it is not your divine time yet. Set the intention and believe before you receive. Full moons always bring magic and is the best time to cultivate self care and love for yourself. And since I have been working away this month I will be celebrating the full moon with another bestie over drinks and a much needed night out.

Happy full moon and high vibes, xo

New Moon In Aries

IMG_0349.jpeg

The Aries new moon, the first of the zodiac, the freshest of starts. There is a theme I am feeling for this month and this new moon of being INSANELY AUTHENTIC. This new moon is about getting so real about yourself and starting completely fresh by getting rid of what is not working once and for all. When you clear things out in your life that is when you can bring more in. When you make your self worth your top priority and become really honest with what you want that is when the clarity will rush in. The universe can’t send you something unless it knows what you want. This new moon is really calling you to jump in and throw all cautions to the wind, with you hair flowing while you drive past your fear. It is about the alchemy created when we put in the work, the true work we want to be creating and not to be confused with the things that aren’t aligned. This will be a month of pushing through, finishing up projects and trying to juggle all that is coming to you. Remember to breathe! and to find your sacred moments of rest.

Here is a ritual to do for tonight’s new moon!

Ritual for new moon manifestation:

Let’s get real!! Get some music playing, clean your space, turn down the lights and light some candles. Get things really vibing by using some woodsy incense and have a tarot deck near by. We are setting a mood to feel great and create a sacred moment for yourself. Turn off your phone as you don’t want any distractions for when intuition comes in. Get your journal or a piece of paper and write down the things that you have been doing that are not aligning and making you happy and get REAL about it. Take an inventory of anything that doesn’t make you feel your most vibrant self and then ask yourself is there something I can do to change it? If there is one pressing issue you can ask the tarot deck for a resolution. Listen for what your gut is telling you. Then write a dream list, whatever you want for your year write it down. Thank the universe for guiding the way and brining in portals for you to achieve it. Get excited about your new life, it is coming for you, just watch for the signs and let the universe do its magic. Take action right away! What is one thing you can do right now to get closer to your vision? Maybe it’s creating a vision board, sending an email, researching a new project idea or writing the synopsis of your new book idea. With this new moon energy do it now!! The Aries energy is here to give you the boost and passion you need.

Happy new moon and high vibing!

Spring Equinox and Full Moon

IMG_8741.jpg

The spring equinox is a super charged time, full of newness and signs of new beginnings. Just the presence of longer days and sunlight has an affect on our mood and vibration. With this equinox and powerful portal we are being asked to clean our slate, remove all that is unwanted to bring space for NEW. Whatever it is that you are calling in for the new season ahead it is time to start completely fresh, no matter where you came from or what happened in your past. This portal energy gives us a vibrational advantage and we can tap into our intuitive forces to help with this shift. Make strong moves, let go of the job that is not serving you, start that business you have always wanted and book that flight to the place that is calling you. This is a time for great courage into starting new and taking that leap. The theme for this equinox is jump in.

To jump in we need some energetic help from the supermoon full moon that is in Libra. Cultivating self worth and knowing your worthiness will help you confidently step into this new life you are creating. The Libra full moon is all about balance, the scales of justice. You need a balance between grounded-ness and dreamy vision for your future. What are the positive action steps you can take while also balancing your daydreams you have? The energy of this full moon with help you with the clarity. After this mercury retrograde things should have been illuminated for you and a deep realization of worth after the hard work of looking at your shadows. Libra’s peaceful energy will give you the much needed break after the chaos of the retrograde and will give you the push to seek your own justice. There is life force energy waiting to be revealed, use this time as an opportunity to go for exactly what you want. Fear will creep in but know that whatever is aligned for you will flow and you will always be supported.

Here is a ritual for you to do on the Spring Equinox on March 20th and the Full Moon on March 21st.

Wake up for Sunrise on the morning of March 21st as this is the first day of spring. Write down your intentions for the coming season, the things that make your heart sing. Take these intentions and a flower or plant offering, something that you can leave in nature. Go to a park or the beach or some place in nature that you love. Bring your intentions and offerings and you can even bring some sage to use to bless the offering. Once you have reached the spot say your intentions out loud to nature and say them as if they are currently happening and thank nature and the universe for bringing them into your life. Then when you are ready take the offering and give it to nature. Life is a balance, what we give is also what we receive.

Happy high vibes! xoxo

Mercury Retrograde and New Moon in Pisces

mer.jpg

And here we are at the start of another mercury retrograde and the new moon on March 6th in the emotional sign of pisces. The influence of this new moon energy will also affect how we experience the beginning of the retrograde. The new moon that is in Pisces has a connection to its ruling planet Neptune. This brings out elements of a beautiful chaos, the blessings in the midst of breakdowns. it is also very creative and spiritual while highlighting the shadows in our life. If you are feeling confusion in aspects of your romance and career and spiritual side know that this may be the result of our mysterious Neptune. In the mystery we can find the light once again by putting our creativity and spiritual practices first. Since we are in the beginning of the retrograde of mercury which governs our communication we may be feeling this fog and misunderstanding in the form of communication. Has your romantic or personal relationships felt uneasy or perhaps absent? Ride the emotional wave and know that whatever happens with the planets you can always choose yourself, choose to find beauty in what you love to create and try to focus on the great aspects of your life. This fog will not last for long and the answers you seek will eventually illuminate. This sensitive time is asking you to take a step back and go inwards, look to meditation to find some comforts. And maybe just maybe enjoy the not knowing, let life unfold in its own magical way, with the pain of challenges and the glory of secret beautiful moments and manifestations waiting for its perfect moment to come in, the moment where worth is aligned and loving yourself in the best medicine.

Mantras for mercury retrograde

We can always choose to embrace this time rather than run from it. The retrogrades are always here to illuminate what you really need to see and this is always to help you elevate your life to the next level. Remember that it is always happening for you not to you. Here are some mantras for each zodiac sign to get you through the retrograde. Say them every morning during a meditation or whenever you need a little more light.

Aries / I let my light lead the way, illumination through the inside out.

Taurus / I am a powerful creator and can build the life of my dreams.

Gemini / I am here to share my truths and find beauty in connecting with others.

Cancer / I am the wave of delicate emotion, spreading my love from my inner world to the outer.

Leo / I am the courageous soul, the soul that uses bravery to guide my path.

Virgo / I am compassion in the quiet moments, I will lead with my heart.

Libra / I am here to speak truth into others, to find the path that glorifies us all.

Scorpio / I use my passion to inspire others, my mystery is a beautiful gift.

Sagittarius / I am free to experience the world and allow the world to experience my truest self.

Capricorn / I am here to expand and grow into my whole authentic self.

Aquarius / I am infinite possibility and use my gifts to innovate the world around me.

Pisces / I am love in the silent moments and love without expectation.

I was on a podcast!! I have a serious obsession with podcasts and usually listen to the ones on health and wellness and the mystical. At the beginning of the year on my business manifesting list I wrote ‘to be on a podcast’ so when the gals from Vibe Tribe Wellness reached out I knew it was all aligned. I had an amazing time chatting all things moon phases, moon rituals, rock bottoms, break ups and the energetics of the year amongst so many other things. Check out the episode (#74) here: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/podcast/vibe-tribe-wellness/id1248151236?mt=2

The Lovers Tarot

Happy Love Day! This day can be so beautiful if we focus on the energy of love, the love we have for ourselves and the love we can show others. For me this day represents deep self love, looking inwards to cherish the person I am and emanate that love. I am really excited to share the new tarot card designed for Topanga Moon: The Lovers. This card was illustrated by my dear friend Alex Perlin. It represents the lovers tarot and my love of Joshua Tree. The lovers tarot represents relationship and choices, deep passion and true love. It is a beautiful card and the two hands intertwining are a symbol of love coming together. If you pull this card in a reading it could mean passion will be entering your life or a choice must be made and you should let love lead the way. It also represents soul communication and a balance of coming together for a higher good.

I hope you have the most loving day! xoxo and happy high vibing.

February New Moon

IMG_5133.JPG

We have a powerful and very hopeful new moon on February 4th. This new moon will feel more like a fresh start than the one in January as that month had many eclipses which tend to take over in the energetics of a moon phase. It will feel like a new moon of a new year and with that comes the energy of a true fresh start. This moon in Aquarius is in a sextile to Jupiter which brings luck, new blessings and great opportunities for manifestations. This is the most lucky new moon of the year so take full advantage of this great energy by setting up clear and beautiful intentions.

Aquarius is innovative and can master a system like no other in the zodiac family, they are here to help us figure out a solution to any tricky situation. They are the future seekers, highly intuitive air signs that use their intellect to shine a light on the needs for the planet. This energy is here to help us make a strategic plan to create our manifestations. This energy can hold space as the logical side to your dreams so you can be the dreamer, you can hold your desires as the sacred container of these dreams. The new moon energy will help you map out how to get where you need to go to create the most abundant life while you can lean into your intuition and follow the pings of your heart. This energy gives clear messages, there is no shadow to block the information that needs to come through. Be mindful of the intuitive messages you receive today as they are guiding you to where you’re most aligned and abundant life is.
