Happy New Moon!

The moon has always been dear to me... I’ve always been entranced by her beauty. It’s no wonder I feature the moon in so many of my paintings!

Maybe you remember… way back when… before I even moved to the cabin, I used to do weekly Lunar Reports.

After Marissa and I created Spirit de la Lune, I kind of fell out of the habit of posting them, but I kept on doing lunar astrology!

I’ve just been posting them over on Spirit de la Lune’s Blog!

But now that I’m getting back into regular blogging, I thought I would post a snippet of the report here and link you over to Spirit de la Lune if you are interested in reading up on the astrology for the month!

I’ll also be sharing and linking to our Full Moon Rituals as well!

I’ve been learning and studying astrology since I was a child… but got very serious about it this year when we decided to create the 2020 Spirit de la Lune planner.

Aside from the art and design work, I volunteered to write the astrology for the year. What a daunting task it has been… but It made me want to share more of it here on my main blog!

I absolutely love that I get to combine my passions for my work. And I;m thankful I’m finally beginning to feel better enough to blog regularly again.

And in this case… share some of my other regular posts with you, more… regularly.

Anyways… Happy New Moon and here’s to New beginnings and abundant possibilities.

A New Moon is a time of new beginnings and starting a brand new chapter for the moon cycle ahead. This is a great time for setting intentions, and the curious and expansive sign of Gemini can help you think of just how to convey your intention and get your message across or fully commit to a new routine.

New Moon energy is also the perfect time for clearing or cleansing your home, crystals, decks and even yourself of any old habits or energy that might be blocking you from reaching your goals! Use this time to call in what you are wanting to create in the future.

Spring is in full swing here in the Northern Hemisphere. Birds are chirping and flowers bloom while the bees are buzzing all around, collecting pollen for their honey. We are beginning to notice the growth blooming around us and how it is all connected.

Connection seems to be an important subject this month. The New Moon wants us to socialize and connect with others like us, and the Honey Moon reminds us of the Hive and to help others and be open to receiving help ourselves.

Don’t be afraid to ask for help this month, and allow others to open the door for you or give you the tools and resources you might need to achieve your goals!

Happy New Moon! What are you doing to celebrate or honor this New Moon in Gemini?

I have illustrated a few children's books as well as some Tarot decks and Oracle decks. Aside from creating art, I am also a card reader. I specialize in Tarot and Crystal readings. I love all things mystic, and spiritual and I delight in the mixture of creation and intuition.

Setting Intention

I've always loved that fresh feeling of a new home. Like a blank white canvas, or a freshly primed board, a new home always offers so much potential.

I've always been a bit of a traveler and I have never really liked the idea of settling down. I like to move every year or so. I feel it offers a fresh outlook on life, and gives you a brand new start. This new website feels just like a new home does. Even down to the new shiny white walls. This is the first time I've made a big internet move. It feels scary. Like all big first steps into the unknown do..

There was nothing wrong with my last home, but I felt I needed to redefine myself, and my role in what it was I was offering the world. I felt stretched too thin, like I was wearing way too many hats. Over the years, I had taken the role of "blogger" very seriously. With tutorials, outfits, recipes and daily posts, I felt unrefined. But, taking off the hats and pulling the pieces of myself together again has really helped me re-evaluate what role it is I want to play.

I can only offer my most most authentic self now. I just don't have the time or energy for anything that is not me. I think this is something every person goes through at some point.  

This year has been a year of shifting for me. Obviously. You've seen it. I've seen it. With my move last year, and all the other changes life has offered me, it's hard not to allow this shift to take place. 


I think one of the largest indicators for me, is that lately, all I really want to do is paint!

 I mean, I've always loved to create, but something has shifted. There is a new need within me, to draw inward and paint. To open up my creative channels, and express. There is a thrill behind it that wasn't there before. It's like a new challenge, something different,  a new desire and reason for creating in my life. 

And when that wild call of creation sounds, it's best to just roll with it. I try to follow the creative force that has it's hold on me. And I'll be honest, it's a love/hate relationship. Some days it acts as a gentle guiding hand, but other times a dark choking fist. Yet, the tortured artist soul is driven to create, with no real answer why. To stay up late, to splatter their soul onto canvas for reasons unknown. At least lately I've been able to look at a finished piece and feel  "wow, I had no idea that there." 

I don't mean to get cheesy and cliche on my very first post on my new website. But I can't help but speak my truth. Even if it sounds like the repeated words from every artist. Cliches are repeated so often because they ring so true. 

Whenever I move homes, I like to practice a bit of ritual. I love rituals. I always clear and bless my new home before and after moving in and decorating. I feel it's an important part of creating that space and making it personally sacred. During the home's blessing I always like to set an intention for that space. For example: when I cleanse and bless my art studio, I always bless it with creativity, vision, and lots of vibrant energy, very different that the bedroom which would be blessed for relaxation and tranquility.

With this new space, my newest "home", I want to set intention. I've already decorated, furnished and rearranged this place plenty of times and it's time to set a clear intention.

My blessing and intention is that this website will always feels like home. 

To me, and to you.

My intention is that this space will always and only house authenticity.

And as an artist, I promise to share all sides of me, the dark side and the light. I promise the tortured artist soul will make some splashes, splatters, and beautiful mistakes. As an intuitive, mystic and oracle, I promise to share my intuition, my wisdom and inner knowing. As an intuitive reader and channel, I promise keep this space safe, private and always non-judgmental. This space will also house classes, and workshops, where as a teacher I promise to open up even more, and show you my sacred creative process, to be raw, and vulnerable and always authentic. 

 

And a BIG thank you to my "beta testers" and all those who have helped make this new space happen! 

I'm very excited for the new space and all the newness it has to offer. 

And.. Happy Earth Day!! 

I also wanted to celebrate our Earthly home with an Earth Day sale! My website launch landing on Earth Day was a bit of a happy coincidence, but worked out just beautifully.
