New Moon Vibes- Spring Has Sprung!

Although the New Moon was over the weekend, I’ve been really feeling it these past couple of days.  Perhaps it’s a combination of the moon and Mercury snapping out of retrograde (whew), but I’ve been feeling refreshed, calm, and balanced.

Instead of being overcome with emotions- both good or bad- I’ve been feeling more neutral.  People haven’t been pushing my buttons like they used to, comments aren’t being taken so personally, and my anxiety about everyday things- such as commuting or finishing up a task at work- isn’t so bad.

I’ve been choosing what to care about and what to put my energy towards.

This New Moon was in Aries, which is the first astrological sign of the zodiac.  So, it only makes sense to be feeling a bit fresh- it’s the New Year!  I like that thought, too- now is the beginning of a brand new cycle.  We’re all able to pay attention to what is around us, take control of our thoughts, and focus on what is happening in the now. 

That’s how I want to live in this new year, new spring, and new season.

Spring is a time of rebirth, growth, and manifestation; as the old falls away, the new comes into form.  I spent the majority of the winter cooped up writing, planning, and coming up with ideas- which served its purpose during the cold, snowy months.  I had been busy planting seeds for what was next, and even though I was taking steps each day, my ideas weren’t ready to grow- until now.

Just like the spring, everything has its cycle- planting, growth, and blossoming.

Over the weekend I did my usual routine- a Saturday stroll through Boston Common, journaling in the Public Garden, and window shopping on Newbury Street.  It’s finally starting to look like spring, and I’m excited to watch the flowers start to bloom… just like new projects, ideas, and dreams.

Significance of the Winter Solstice

It’s officially winter!

Winter Solstice marks an important turning point for all of us; it’s the start of a new cycle and powerful time for reflection, intention setting, and spiritual growth.  As the year comes to an end, so do many old habits, regrets, fears, and pain.  It’s a time to let go, to look within, and find clarity within one’s soul.

I have more good news- Mercury Retrograde is coming to an end!  

Unlike many who prefer warmer temperatures, I absolutely love winter; it’s a peaceful time of self-care, soul-cleansing, and hope.  It’s no surprise, either- I came into this world on a snowy winter evening at 9:08PM (12/22!).  My birthdate explains my affinity for even numbers and patterns, too.

Winter represents a more feminine, inward energy; it’s a wonderful time to tap into your intuition, compassion, and heart.  Where is your soul guiding you?  Now is the time to listen; your heart always knows the way.  Listen to the signs and go with your gut. ❤

Now is a powerful time for us to focus on self-care, to pay attention to our dreams, and set goals for 2018.  Whether or not you’re a fan of the cold weather, cuddle up in a warm blanket, make a cup of cocoa, and enjoy the positive energy that the new season brings.  It’s going to be a wonderful year ahead.

12/12 Gateway: A Time of Remembering


I’ve been doing a lot of reading on the collective energy this past year, wondering if I was the only person feeling a major “shift.”  I’ve felt an awakening ever since January, and it turns out I’m not the only one.  2017 has been an amazing year of transformation, growth, and enlightenment.  As the year wraps up, today marks a special gateway into peace and prosperity: the 12/12 Time of Remembering.

I came across Jenny Schultz‘s blog, which had a wonderful explanation of this powerful time:

What does the Time of Remembering mean?

It means that all are being shown who they are and also who they are not. One will see what they need to, experience what they need to in order to step fully into their power and embody all that they are. Another will be shown very clearly where they have given away their power to institutions, beliefs, and other people. Most of you will experience a melding of both. As you embody all that you are in each moment, all that you are not must also come to light. Understand that in each moment you are being given a choice.

What type of choice?

You are being given a choice to push past all the doubt and disbelief and honor who you know that you are at your core. In order to do this, all the layers of the matrix must fall away. This can be liberating for some, but many experience deep discomfort as all that they know is being challenged.

Letting old densities leave us can be extremely uncomfortable, causing anxiety, worry, and doubt.  We’ve all been through a lot this past year, so now is the time to prepare for 2018.  As we have let old habits, beliefs, doubts, and patterns fall away in 2017, 2018 will be a time to build, grow, and manifest our goals.  It’s time to live the life you love!

Be conscious of the signs that may be leading you on the right path.  12/12 has many other spiritual significances, connecting us with our higher self.

You’re connecting with the collective 

12 represents unity, and two of them together are twice as powerful!  On 12/12, people all over the world are meditating at 12:12 (both AM and PM).  If you get the chance, please tap into that positive energy!  When in doubt, remember that you are part of something much bigger.

You’re on the right path

It’s such a relief to get just a tiny sign that you’re on the right path.  Perhaps you’re thinking of changing careers, picking up a new hobby, or finally writing that book- if so, 12/12 is confirming that now is the time!  Be careful to start new projects until after Mercury Retrograde, though- until December 22nd, be weary of communication issues, technical failures, and confusion.  Now is the time to plan, not execute!

It’s a time of manifestation

Continue to follow your path and dreams!  I’ve been searching for meaning in my life, and 2018 is the time for it all to come to fruition. It’s easy to try to hurry and watch the pieces fall into place, but remember to go with the flow.  If things aren’t working as planned, try to be patient and know that you’re being supported.

Stay positive 

It’s so easy to give up when it feels like you’re far from your goals.  Seeing 12:12 is a sign to remember to stay positive- you will better manifest your goals with the power of thought.

I’ve reflected a lot on my goals, what I used to think I wanted, and what I know I want now.  As I get closer into alignment, my faith in the future has grown stronger- at last, I know I am supported.
