Happy New Year! Again!

On Thursday, February 19, we move into the Chinese Year of the Wood Sheep (or Goat) until February 7, 2016. Sheep correlates to Western Astrology’s sign of Cancer, so the home, family and ones roots are all very important this year. Not just in having comfort in the home, but in repairing relationships with those closest to us and developing a community feel with people of like mind. Read More

Super Moon On September 9

I’ve talked about most of these occurrences before. The difference is that now there is a lot of energetic change overlapping and coming to a head, clearing us out, so to speak, before we move into 2014. Read More
