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.
Full Moon in Gemini at 27 degrees and 29 minutes on Saturday 18th 2021
Dec 18, 11:35 pm – Full Moon December 2021 at 27♊29
Dec 19, 05:35 am – Venus Retrograde at 26♑29
The next full moon will occur on Saturday, Dec. 18 at 1: 36 p.m. Mst (0426 Dec. 19 GMT), but the moon will appear full the night before and after its peak to the casual stargazer. The December full moon is also known as the Cold Moon.
Our last full moon for the year, we are closing out a cycle with this full moon. It is on the axis of Gemini and Sagittarius, moon in Gemini at this time. It brings intense energy with it. As the Gemini moon sets on the Fixed Star Betelgeuse, this is the star of power and worldly success it amplifies talents and abilities.
Mars in Sagittarius, the sign of the Archer, will bring fiery action. It will be a busy weekend with communication, writing or shopping. Gemini has a love of many plates spinning in the air. Don’t let yourself become frazzled or overwhelmed with all the busyness. Talk time to connect with people you love and open the flow of connection. Great time to tell stories from the past, Sagittarius is the storyteller, and Mars is just passing the south node look for the wisdom in your words and choices.
Venus’ retrogrades starts on Dec 19th six hours after the full moon. This retrograde is less frequent (once in about 17-18 months) but much longer (about 42 days). She will be in retro from Dec 19th until January 29, from 26 -11 Capricorn. She is very strongly accompanied on some of her backwards journey by conjunctions to Pluto (December 21-30) and Mercury (December 27-30). These connections take place more or less in the latter degrees of the cardinal signs, so if you have any strong placements in your natal chart between 23 to 28 of Aries, Libra, Cancer, and (especially) Capricorn, this set of transiting conjunctions will speak loudly to you.
So, Venus, Pluto and Mercury are dancing together as we move into a new year and shut the door on this one. It will be a tango!
So, Venus the beautiful planet of love, money, self-esteem or what we are passionate about in connection with Pluto, some hard looks at all relationships, should they stay or should go, Pluto can inspire us to a better wisdom of knowing when to let go. So, the question will be about who supports you and who doesn’t. Pluto is the transformation planet and mercury is talking, writing, or teaching. Could be some hard lessons about money now for the world, for our country, on a personal level, and relationships. Pluto with Venus is helping us emerge from the cocoon and go through that alchemical transformation to open to a true self.
What a ride with the winds of change blowing, it is time to fly.
In any given moment we have two options to step forward into growth or step back into safety
Cosmic Winds for Nov 2021
November 2021 Winds of Change are blowing all around us and through us. The deeper energy of this month is strongly about spiritual awakening. It will be a wild ride.
Hang to your love and allow for spiritual awakening.
And open your hands and let go of everything that is no longer supporting you
And Scorpio is all about transformation, unions, and seeing your shadow. The veil grows thin when the sun enters Scorpio, work with your ancestors, for they are closer to you.
Mars has now moved into Scorpio and will be in the sign of traditional rulership until Dec 13th.
Mars in Scorpio is intensely powerful with potent magic, and deep shifting of blocks and shadow work. New Moon on the 4th in Scorpio which will be electrifying, with an opposition to Uranus the planet of freedom from the familiar. Signaling a deep dive down the dark passageway to the underworld, grab your flashlight and explore what is there in you, Hidden desires, being true to yourself, and working with your shadow. You are now ready to move the boulders out of your way and now can plant seeds with love and clarity. Seeds of you creating your own magic, discovering the power of your feminine power, and intuition. Setting intention in the mysterious underworld and allowing yourself to believe in your own magic. Letting go of what stands in your way, bringing clarity to your vision. Uranus is here with lightning bolts of transformation influencing inventions and the willingness to leave the past so that we can change our world, and the world for the better. In the tarot the planet Uranus is the Fool card, starting anew and traveling light.
2021 has been marked by an ongoing, shakeup-bringing square between Saturn, the planet of limitations and boundaries, and Uranus planet of freedom and unexcepted, so it makes for perfect alignment at this time as the last 3 new moons have been building the energy and desire to be free and to make sure all your relationship is supporting your growth and meeting you in a deep way.
The full moon partial lunar eclipse in Taurus on November 19 will blow open the family tombs, exposing hidden or suppressed histories of gaslighting, control, and self-sublimation. How long have you downplayed your value? Who has taught you to compromise? This is but the first of several eclipses on the Taurus-Scorpio divide, raging through 2023. Everything is up for renegotiations!
The eclipse will darken the moon for much of the globe on November 19, 2021 (overnight on November 18 for North America). Most locations will see up to 97% of the moon slip into Earth’s shadow. North America has the best location to see the entirety of the eclipse.
So, we also have Nov 11th occurring. 11, a Master Number is a highly spiritual double-digit number thought to be attuned to higher realms and dimensions
In this way, we can see 11 11 as something of a meditation bell: you are being asked to tune into the present moment and the love/guidance that is always available to you. You are being asked to engage more deeply in the mystery and wonder of existence, understanding that there is an Intelligence much greater than yours at play So talk to Angels, a perfect time for a beautiful ritual, bask in the energy of this connection and be mindful of your choices. Allow the love that flows from this space to fill you up and know you are supported
In addition to being a message from Angels, 11 is also connected to sacred teachers such as Christ, the Buddha, and St. Germain to name a few.

Annie Host of Lemurian Sacred Circle of Central AZ
Thank you so much for the insightful and uplifting reading. You have an incredible ability to bring up central issues affecting my life and the lives of those close to me. For example, you mentioned my horse was having some problems with his feet and not to worry because it could be resolved. Within a week, he was off (lame), which is highly unusual for him. I sought immediate veterinary care, took radiographs of his feet, and we had a simple shoeing change which corrected the issue. Knowing what you mentioned in the reading prompted me to pursue the imaging of the feet when the vet was operating under an assumption his problem was a joint issue. You have shown such accuracy in so many areas during my readings, and frequently you’re bringing up something not on my radar or something I haven’t mentioned to you. You are the most accurate medium I’ve ever met—and your readings are so fun. Thanks so much!
Gave fantastic advice and guidance
I had a reading with you at the Faire on Saturday in Irvine. I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the amazing reading you did! You gave me fantastic advice and guidance. I was really impressed with how you were able to take the info you were given by spirit and give me clear messages on how to use that in the “real world” : ) The messages were very clear and your delivery was incredibly thoughtful and compassionate. I will definitely refer you to other people as well. (I already have ; )
I hope to see you again and thank you for choosing this path, as I am sure you have helped many other people as well — and will continue to do so! In gratitude…
