Dear Goddess, StarsSeeds and Holders of hope,
The full moon of April will rise tonight (April 16), amid Easter, Passover, Ramadan, and spring celebrations around the world.
In the United States, one traditional Native American name for this is the Pink Moon. Pink is meant to refer to the eastern United States herb moss pink, also called creeping phlox, moss phlox, or mountain phlox.
The moon is in Libra and the Sun is in Aries. This moon is all about balance in. Libra is an air sign. So, communication, balance, justice, and relationships is what this moon is all about.
This moon is conjunct Spica and square Pluto. Conjunction is when two planets are connected, hanging out very close together. Now Spica is a fixed star. Spica is one of the 15 Behenian Fixed Stars. Its image is a bird, or a man laden with merchandise riches.
Spica is the bright bluish star in the wheat stalks held by the Lady in the Sky – the constellation Virgo. It is regarded by all sky cultures as one of the most positive stars in the sky. In most cultures, the constellation Virgo was seen as the Goddess. In ancient Egypt, particularly the later periods, it was seen as the Goddess Isis, and the star Spica represented or embodied her son, Horus. In later Christian traditions, the constellation was associated with the Virgin Mary and Spica with the Christ-child (there is much research into the possibility that Spica was the biblical Star of Bethelehem). Others have the constellation representing the Goddess with Spica the star in Her hand or upholding some form of produce of the earth. Wheat is the symbol of wealth, full bellies, and success, successful growth.
So, it is also working with Libra and, feels like wishing on a star is now.
Finding balance within ourselves and looking at the shadow side of all relationships.
So now the square to Pluto, squares are not easy energy, they motivated us to let go and move forward. And change never seems easy to us humans. We tend to hold on to everything. Pluto demands the release of our wounds and triggers. Pluto is such a symbol of powerful change. Digging into our underworld and looking at all our triggers. A difficult childhood, a painful experience, deception, or betrayal are just some of our triggers.
Allowing change and letting go will open our arms to our bountiful future.
So, what is your wish?
Be in balance within yourself, walk in hope and believe in grace.
Feel free to share
New Moon in Aries
The new moon is on Friday April 1st, 2022,
The energy of Aries New Moon is starting to roll in. The new moon is setting between Mercury and Chiron. Taking the good from the past and now shifting our attention to a new adventuring way. The energy of April is fascinating, such highs and lows. Are we dreaming or fighting?
I kept getting Peter Pan flying with his dreams, magic and his adventure to the Stars. Chiron will bring our attention to what still needs to heal.
Good time to write and journal about what changes we would like to make to the organization of our life. Aries likes to leap off the cliff to a new adventure. Letting go of pain that Chiron brings up. Taking flight in our dreams that we have been planning. Are you Ready?
April 4th can be a tough day so be chilled. And then April 10th -12TH Neptune and Jupiter dance in sky, these old friends haven’t been in Pisces in Conjunction since 1856.
This Jupiter Neptune conjunction which means connected in Pisces unlocks the door that has been hidden. New views, new dreams, and creativity.
And then there is the spiritual awakening that this energy holds.
Allow yourself to connect with Divine Feminine and know you are co-creators with the divine. The old patriarchy is gasping, and their old ways are dying, it is not about violence or war, but we may see even more of it.
With mercury and Chiron holding space in the new moon, it is about finding our way to non- violence and heartful honest communication (Mercury) connecting with our neighbors and communities with peace.
Perfect time to set an altar, go on an adventure, release your old stuff that no longer serves you at all. How do you inspire people around you? Step into your wisdom and compassion. We are helping people through education and our actions. We are the seers, the healers, the teachers here to hold the space of shift.
So, beware of high emotions with people and triggering water events.
Imagine all the people
Livin’ life in peace.
You may say I am a dreamer
But I am not the only one.
I hope someday you’ll join us
The Dark Moon in Pisces on March 2nd 2022. This new moon occurs at 12 degrees 7 minutes Pisces. This is a water sign, which is mutable and fertile, which means it allows for expansion.
Dear ShaWoman, Goddess and Shining Ones.
This sweet moon is a mystical moon, so sensitive, intuitive, and spiritual. Pisces is all about oneness. Pisces is the dreamer and the feeler. The is the mother and influences your attitude in your life. So how do you nurture others and how do you nurture yourself. The moon is the path to happiness. Finding your moon sign in your natal chart will give you a lot of information. Where will this Pisces dark moon land in your chart and what house? This Pisces moon is in my fourth house, so home, family, and ancestors.
So dark/ new moon energy allows the darkness to expand the imagination and our concept of what is possible. To that end, the New Moon is a celestial slate-cleaning, a summons to dream and an invitation to initiate. Planting new seeds, dreaming new dreams, and engaging with imagination and your own intuition, the small inner voice that whispers to us that is a guidepost encouraging or warning us.
Win big or lose big. This is seeding us with enlightenment. This is the raindrops sprinkling into our spiritual practice to feed us, love us, and to allow us to go into our depth and create our expansion. This month is a perfect to meditate, to journal, to be creative. And then even more amazing is the sun and Jupiter conjunct to the new moon. And Neptune is 22 degrees in Pisces. Expanding our spiritual energy, tapping into your psychic energy, believe is a strong word here. One of the words for Pisces is compassion, compassion for others, for our planet and ourselves. Time to sprinkle the fairy dust.
And mystical Neptune and Jupiter the planet of beliefs and expansion conjunct on April 12th, this connection talks about love, spirituality and creatively. So, start dreaming and manifest a bigger experience, this will be the time.
The last Jupiter-Neptune conjunction in the sign of Pisces happened in 1856. Guess what happened around this time? The emergence of Blues music, which was notably the “birth” of American music. The Blues not only revolutionized music on a global scale, it’s the precursor to R&B and hip hop.
So, I wonder did we come to this planet Earth, so we could connect with this rare conjunction? And this is the song I am hearing in my head.
Then peace will guide the planets
And love will steer the stars
Oh, let it shine, c’mon
Now everybody just sing along
Let the sun shine in
Open up your heart and let it shine on in
When you are lonely, let it shine on
Got to open up your heart and let it shine on in
And when you feel like you’ve been mistreated. And if your friends
Just open your heart, and shine it on in

February 16th at 9:56 am Mst the Sun is 27 Aquarius 59 and the Moon is 27 Leo 59.
So, this exciting moon is full of fire, passion, energy, romance and creating new thought around all of that. Break free and follow your inspiration. Allow yourself to be creative and shine your love and light. This is a powerful moon; Leo is the fire and Aquarius is the air. The fire and air of this full moon can lead to being inspire to new heights and thinking and feeling in balance. Just be aware other people may be somewhat ready to confront easily. The sun and moon right are in fixed signs, not easy for change, but the Aquarius Sun is pushing for breakthroughs
Be grounded, focusing yourself, prioritize. Saturn in Aquarius is opposing the Leo Sun. And a happy rejoining of the divine feminine (Venus and masculine Mars. Venus and Mars dance together and so it is a romance, and the Leo moon is excellent at that. Allow it to about out of the box creatively, try new things, play with possibilities, being inspiring and courageous. This full moon is about balance with friends and lovers. Are you inner feminine and masculine energy in balance, do you know how to dance with it?
The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.” — Dieter F. Uchtdorf
The Wolf Moon.
The first full moon of the year is gracing our skies on Jan 17th at 8:51 pm Mst in the sign of Cancer with the sun conjunct Pluto and with the moon out of bounds its very emotional, people and things could blow up. Use compassion on yourself and others but hold your boundaries. This is a deeply sensitive lunation, watch for power struggles, it also is urging us to find peace within our emotional bodies and nurture ourselves the way we need to. This is the perfect moon of Divine Feminine, soft, and strong within our tribe. Supporting of women and honoring your tribe, your ancestors, and owning your intuition.
The moon is the ruler of the sign of Cancer, the planet of our inner world. And because this lunation is taking place in its home sign, it’s an especially powerful time to align with the attributes of action and water. We have the symbol of the wolf with the cancer moon. Wolfs run in packs and protect and take care of their furry tribe. And the Cancer represent our Divine Mother Energy. The Full Moon represents the culmination of growth. Think of the waxing and waning moons as the increase and decrease of the same energy. Just as the tides ebb and flow, so does the lunar energy. The Full Moon, then, is a time when the lunar body is at ‘high tide’.
Cancer is a cardinal water sign. Cardinal signs, as I’ve mentioned before, are motivators. They formulate new ideas and chase after inspiration, leading the charge into new beginnings regularly. Water signs, on the other hand, are soft, fluid, intuitive, and receptive. By combining the energy of these qualities, we can understand that Cancer is a creative. It is nurturing, feminine, and even psychic, but also knows how to stand its ground. Cancer is protective, making it the ultimate Mother-figure of the zodiac. So, take part in rituals with other woman, placing a beautiful container of water on your altar, asking the Divine Goddess to reveal more of your path this year. What are you still creating, giving birth to? Steep yourself in the energy of the stars and the Starmothers, soak in their wisdom and love and let yourself blossom.
You are the Goddess. Put your hand over your heart and say aloud, “I am not alone.” Your ancestors walked before you and we, your sisters on this cosmic quest, walk with you.”

Happy Mercury Retro
The first Mercury Retrograde of 2022 begins with the Pre-Shadow in Capricorn on December 29, 2021, at 1:29 am PST.
Mercury goes Retrograde in Aquarius (10º 20′) on January 14, 2022, at 3:41 am PST.
The Direct Station occurs in Capricorn (24º 23′) on February 4, 2022, at 4:13 am Universal Time, and on February 3 at 11:47 pm EST and 8:47 pm PST.
Mercury ends the Post-Shadow on Feb 24 in Aquarius at 6:01 am Universal Time, 1:01 am EST and 10:01 pm PST on April 25.
The purpose of my writing is to share a different perspective of Mercury Retrograde. We will have 3 Mercury Retrogrades this year and all will be in the air element, all about communication, speaking, talking, connecting.
Right now, Mercury Retrograde is talked about like something out of Grims’ fairy tales, that we scare ourselves about the retrograde. The sky is falling and then we sell t-shirts and coffee cups with Mercury Retrograde on them, promoting it as dire time. Kind of like Chicken Little. We should run and hide from it, but we can’t get on the plane or train to hide.
So, Mercury Retro will happen 3 times this year all in the air element. So, Mercury Retrograde is about enquiring about the data of the functioning of our lives. It is about thinking out of the box, being present with the moment. It can push you to find the answer. What haven’t you been taking care of? So, let’s say you are doing too much caring for another person at the expense of your self-care. And yes, you are aware of the problem but keep putting off dealing with it, avoiding communication and now suddenly you must deal with it. The process to move forward will require you to find a new way to think about it, talk about it and maybe reorganizing your process about it. And the great news is Aquarius loves to think outside of the box, and to pour knowledge into the world so that it will help. It is about trying something new, getting out of your comfort zone and being very present in the process. It will need action to move forward, so make the choice, liberate yourself in a creative way!
I have bought many things; I have travel and I have moved during Mercury Retrograde and the sky never falls.
It may be a crisis in your thinking that you will have to address but Mercury in Aquarius is all about the new way, reinventing yourself. So let the new show up.
