Aries New Moon: The First New Moon of the Year
Whether you choose to actively use this lunar event to manifest, or just want to stay mindful and remain open to the beneficial and initiative energies at play, the Aries new moon on March 21st is a powerful date with some significant conjucntions that usher in the clearing of the slate and a new beginning for all the signs.
Sun Enters the First Gate of Aries
On Monday March 20th at approximately 5:13pm EST the sun will shift from 29'59" Pisces to 0'o" Aries. This is a monumental shift, one that happens every year, signifying a cycle reset and a new solar dawn, an opportunity for each of us to refocus our solar life force energy, direction, and attention, for a new cycle full of lessons, shifts, and insights, and opportunities to tackle challenges and integrate all the newness. Coinciding with the Vernal Spring Equinox, this is a significant turning point for all beings, and a marker of birth, rebirth, and the inclination towards summer and longer, warmer days for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere. In the Southern Hemisphere, where this season marks the shift towards shorter days and the winter season, the element of fire and the notion of rebirth can take on very different associations.
Intro to Alta Major The Alta Major chakra is a less commonly discussed minor chakra in the mind-body-spirit complex of energy centers that regulate the living experience. Have you heard of it before? Whether the answer is yes or no, we all have the alto major in our field, and it is a fascinating energy gate, energy center, or chakra, however you like to refer to them, that facilitates our connection with our higher self, the akashic field, and our connection to higher wisdom, higher consciousness, and All That Is.

Coyotes on Martha's Vineyard
I live on the small island of Martha's Vineyard off of the southeastern coast of Cape Cod, Massachusssetts. Our little island has long been renowned for its peaceful nature and distinct lack of apex predators. We have bird of prey here like Red Tail Hawks, Osprey, Perregrine Falcons and the occasioal migratory Bald Eagle sighting (I think...don't quote me on that) but never before have we had what's called an apex predator - a large predator at the top of its food chain without something else that would naturally prey on it. Examples of apex predators are bears and wolves, but in Southeastern Massachusetts, coyotes are as big and bad as it gets for the most part. Still, the island had never had a coyote population, or at least hasn't had one in a very long time. Over the years you'd occasionally hear about individual coyotes swimming from the mainland or other neighboring islands like the Elizabeth islands. The majority of them didn't survive the swim and would wash up dead on shore, although a few individuals did make it over but were probably shot and killed or decided to leave the island and swim away, as the sightings were short-lived.
The Story of You
The Major Arcana tells the story of the fool's journey to spiritual and self awareness. Each of the twenty one cards in the major arcana correspond to an energetic signature which then corresponds to a phase in life, a relationship, people you may encounter on the path, or a specific scenario. Whether a person, a place, a state of mind, or an entire chapter of life lasting years, each card represents one of twenty one critical steps that all souls must encounter on the life path as they journey towards understanding the nature of who they are as spiritual, emotional, and physical beings on the material plane. To understand each step is to understand your self. By the end of the journey, the fool is a fool no longer, and has gained mastery over self. And yet, in reincarnation, is ready to tempoerarily relinquish this learned knowledge to undergo another transformation, en route to a higher, deeper, and purer sense.
10 Tips for your Twenties
1. Wear Sunsreen Wear sunscreen. Always. ALWAYS. Just do it. Wear sunscreen. You don’t have to go out of your way to be tan. It does feel great to absorb that vitamin D, but…wear sunscreen. Protect your skin. Sun exposure is known to cause visible signs of aging and skin cancer. I got a bunch of new freckles and random new moles. This totally might have happened either way, but just in case it’s from the sun….wear sunscreen. Make sure to get your face and the backs of your hands.
"Sweatpants Are All That Fit Me Right Now"
On the cusp of 30, stepping onto the scale after coming home from a three-month stint in New York City, I realize with a mixture of shock and horror: I’ve never weighed this much before. Even my loosest pajama pants, that I had retired to a drawer for years because they didn’t stay up around my hips, now fit snugly around my belly.
GUESSING MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT S11 COUPLES ZODIAC SIGNS
THE COUPLES: Amelia & Bennett MY GUESS: Sagittarius & Aquarius Ok I think that Amelia, based on her demeanor on the show, is a sagittarius. She is warm, agreeable, affectionate, and caring, wordly, a free spirit, and a traveler. While Bennett also has many of these qualities, he seems a bit more fixed in his location and attached to his life as he knows it. Even though Bennett plays it cool much of the time, he is obviously quite quirky and very social, and for this reason I think he's an Aquarius.
Critical Analysis: Thoroughbreds, Film
**SPOILERS** If you have not seen the film Thoroughbreds please be aware that the following review contains spoilers. When I was in high school I discovered cult classics. Every weekend my friends and I would watch another: The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Heathers, Donnie Darko, A Clockwork Orange, Pulp Fiction, Fight Club, Reservoir Dogs. We loved the movies that were so weird they were known for it. But always, aside from their crazy characters, bizarre scenarios, and at times overt violence, these movies deliver powerful observations on the sheer oddity that is society and human nature.
December 21 2020 Saturn Jupiter Conjunction
With this historic grand conjunction taking place at 0 degrees Aquarius, this incoming energy will impact our entire planet in ways that we can not yet predict, understand, or maybe even imagine. Aquarian energy is completely new, different, and unexpected. Humanitarian, quirky, progressive, future-oriented, of-the-people, and unique.
