    Communing with the Essence

    Cellular Communication —   Our sensitivity provides us with a great gift. A gift of incredible sight that far exceeds our eyes. We see through our flesh, auric field, and biological, ancestral, and spiritual connection to the universal field of consciousness. In this web of Life there is infinite intelligence and we as humans are inherently plugged in. It’s through our biological birthright that our sensitivity gets restored and we find our rightful place as living Beings with our planet Earth, Galactic Milky Way, and beyond. Like a seed, it is my understanding that we grow deep into the Dark Rich Soil of the Earth to grow above and beyond…

    Learning Lunar: Moon Magic and Mystery

    First Quarter, The Waxing Half Moon     The 2023 Autumn Equinox falls late on the 22nd or early on the 23rd September, depending on exactly where you are in the world. This year, the Equinox begins while the moon is an almost perfect half, the first quarter phase. The Equinox is a time of balanced light and dark, so it feels very mystically charged to have the moon half lit and half in shadow, providing a physical and highly visible representation of this festival.   What Does First Quarter Mean? The cycles of the moon are often referred to as quarters, with the second quarter also being the full…

    Book Review Culpeper’s Complete Herbal By Nicholas Culpeper Annotated by J.J. Pursell  Publisher: Andrews McMeel Pages: 384 Rerelease Date: October 2022         Nicholas Culpeper was an extraordinary figure of the 17th century. Frustrated with the lack of medicine and treatment available to those with no money, Culpeper, a fairly well-to-do gentleman, abandoned his studies at Cambridge University and went to become an apprentice at a London-based apothecary. From there, he set up his own pharmacy and went on to publish “The Complete Herbal” in 1652/53. This was despite twice being accused of witchcraft, tried, and acquitted. Culpeper went against the grain and didn’t let the authorities dissuade…

    Jade Unboxes! Manifestation Box from Gogh Jewelry Design

        Gogh Jewelry graciously sent us one of their monthly Manifestation Boxes to review in our Pages. It came in a simple, yet cute box. I like that they didn’t use a lot of paper, glitter, or other extras in the shipping department. In my opinion, I would rather the box and décor are simple, and the money better spent in product or material for the customer. The box consisted of a necklace, a bracelet, and a stone, as well as a handout on the theme for the month and your personal astrology for that month.     The necklace (which was my favorite item in the box), was…

    Mindful Living: A Connection of Mind, Body and Spirit

    The Autumn Equinox, also known as Mabon, will fall on September 23, 2023. It is the end of the harvest season and a time to reflect on what we have grown and gathered during this turn of the wheel or reap what you have sown. Because it is an equinox, it is also time to examine balance in your life. Balance is not something we achieve once and remains a constant. Our lives are fluid so the balance of the season of our life must be fluid. Many of us approach balance as something to be achieved and then it is completed. Balance is to be constantly reexamined because our…
