I’m in a reflective mood this week. It’s the start of a new month – my birthday month – and I’ll be turning 40 in a few weeks. I’m thinking a lot about what I want the theme for August to be and how I want to consciously enter this next decade of my life. There will be celebrations – my girls are coming down to Belize from the States to bring in my solar return with me. There will be revelry and shenanigans. I’m so looking forward to that.

I performed this week in LAB3 at the Image Factory Art Foundation in Belize City.  The LAB is a two-week experimental art project in the gallery curated by Kate Numi Usher, where artists create work in the space for display or performance within a 48-hour period. It is a wonderful project and I am grateful to have participated in it again this year. Continue reading “Legacy/Love at LAB3”

Jambalaya: Summer Solstice & Full Moon In Sagittarius

Before I went to bed last night, I stood outside and looked at the moon – big and bright, vibrating in its near-completion to fullness. I dreamed I was at a birthday party with friends, for someone I’ve known a long time. My friend who was hosting the party gave me two huge balloons, and I went out on the balcony alone to release them. It was night time, and the sky was a rich, deep navy blue, dotted with stars. The air felt alive and activated, and I could see the colorful tops of houses below. It was quiet, just me and the night sky, and I released the balloons one at a time, watching them float slowly away, into the beyond.

The Practice: Part 3

Tonight’s new moon in Gemini is a shift and the beginning of a new cycle. I’m getting into the energy and did a clearing ritual today. I smudged the apartment, Ro and myself with sage, refreshed my crystal altar, and used lavender essential oil and Reiki symbols to cleanse our space. I sat outside to reflect in my journal and clarify my intentions. I wrote a list of what I want to let go of, burned the list, and wrote a list of dreams and goals that I want to manifest. This moon is about release and renewal. Continue reading “The Practice: Part 3”

Higher Ground: Moving Through Transitions

I like to believe I am good at dealing with change. That I am able to accept its inevitability and even embrace it with some level of insight. That I am less passive than I used to be and actively engage it when it comes into my life. I see change as a force and an entity that doesn’t really give a shit about our feelings, and just shows up to fulfill its purpose, whether invited or not.

The Fifth House: Mercury Retrograde & New Moon In Capricorn

This week finds me in an introspective place. Just a step into the new year, I am still reflecting on the year past and all that I experienced and learned, gathering insight into what was gained and how to build on that. A lot is happening astrologically as well, with Mercury currently in retrograde and the approaching new moon, both in Capricorn.
