This fall’s astrological mantra? Honor your fear

On October 31st, Mars will enter Scorpio for the first time in two years. Mars rules Scorpio, so this is a homecoming. Only, there are no balloons, streamers, champagne — this is no celebration of life and all its revelry. Instead, there is dust, bone, tar, and muck. …

This week’s Spirit Medicine: Do you notice and appreciate the tiny blessings?

Full moons tend to do a number on us as the floodgates open. Around this time, feelings, thoughts, situations that have been bubbling up below the surface reach its peak. It can feel like an overflow of emotions…

This week’s advice for the collective asks us to shape how we choose to interact with family, plus research our ancestral tree.

One thing that we won’t be able to escape this week is family!

Sit with the word, family, what does it mean to you?

Who comes to mind? How does it feel?

Iya cutlass wants us to take initiative with how we show up in our family structures. She is…

Memories, mission, and meaning

First, you agreed to forget everything about past lives

1. You Agreed to Forget Everything

Imagine coming to earth knowing you had a sit down with God, mapped out your entire life, and shook hands with him after signing a soul contract.

The past, peace, and guidance

Even if you're walking all alone with dark clouds for company

1. Your Past No Longer Controls You

The ego loves the past story, but the universe doesn’t love that.

The universe doesn’t want the…

The tarot cards say stability and celebration meet desire and joy in your life this week.

Sometimes when I pull the messages for the week ahead multiple cards fly out of the deck, but this time around two cards stuck together, which felt like a sign to read them as a pair. The pair got me giddy just seeing them! Four of staffs and the 10…

You did hard work over the summer. For fall? Apply the lessons.

Virgo season did what it came to do! It gave us the time to mold these energetic caves for each of us to find safety, solace and a peace of mind as we tuned out the outside world, while getting to to know ourselves a little better. …

This week’s medicine: “True healing begins once we hold ourselves accountable for the power we’ve given others, our fears, or our trauma.”

I’m so tired, family. And I know you are too. Each week there’s a new battle to face and whether it’s impacting us directly or indirectly, we still feel it. And when we focus on all of the negativity around us, peace can start to feel unattainable.

Collectively, we’re facing…

It’s time for another fresh start

Point of view: It’s a gloriously sunny day. Not too hot where I’m dripping sweat and my forehead shines from a mile away, but warm enough where the sun just kisses my shoulders and the light breeze fills my lungs refreshingly. I’m waiting at the crosswalk in the city, any…
