《 welcome to Scorpio Season 》
I was born under the dark Scorpio moon. Whispers of a deeper life, higher love, and intense connection always played at my thoughts, though I wasn't able to name these things until much later. At the time they just felt like unexplainable discomfort.
We have parts of ourselves that are deep and fierce and far-seeing, and we are afraid that if we show anyone those shadowed places that they will leave. Because we don't understand them ourselves so how could they?
So we lock those pieces away for long periods of time, sometimes forever. Instead we become determined to live in the light at all times, smiling and laughing for everyone, keeping conversations light, and forgetting our true nature.
But wolves don't die quietly. Our shadows scratch and claw and howl until a tiny piece of the wall we built crumbles. Then we either have the choice to repair the hole or knock the wall down completely and brace ourselves for whatever follows.
When we realize that we are all children of the moon, with parts of us waxing and waning in the darkness constantly, it makes the shadows not seem so scary.
While we all deal with different levels of darkness, Scorpio season is an important time to make friends with the night. The shadows are not just our captor but our savior.
Now is a season for digging roots, unearthing that powerful medicine that lays silently growing throughout the year. Dahlias today, marshmallow tomorrow for me.

Definitely not the easiest skill to develop but it’s one that’s well worth the time and energy it takes!!! 🌀
I dance because there is something in me that doesn’t know otherwise.
The wildness from my ancestors burns between my thighs and I must move,
Let my hair loose and howl until the full moon has died.
That’s the kind of prayer that I do, with my whole body in combustion
Spinning everything around me like the earth rotating at itself
And tasting how it's to be so beautifully in sync with the entire universe.
✿ Working as a Healer, it is incredible to see how many women walk in believing something is missing in their life and walk out as embodied Light Workers. All they needed was a reminder of who they are and the true magic that lies within. Once a woman activates her full power and steps into her role as Shaman, Priestess, Medicine Woman, Witch, & more, embodying the Earth Mother, there’s no dimming her shine!

Cancer Moon .
12.12.2019 - 12.14.2019 .
There’s a heaviness I feel sometimes - like a weight pressing on my head and my heart. And, it’s only when I stop and breathe and open, that I realize it’s the heaviness of unforgiveness -
Of replaying my mistakes and my shortcomings over and over and over ;
Of picking the scabs off of my wounds and rubbing them in salt again and again ;
Of holding on to the hurts and the resentments, like trusted bedfellows .
But, today’s Cancer Moon reminds me that it’s time to harness our internal “Mother Love”, wrap ourselves in its tenderness, and know that we are - and always have been - FORGIVEN .
Cancer is the sign of the Cosmic Mother, the Nurturer, the Healing Womb, and the Creatrix. She is the part of us that guards our right to self-care and to sustenance, and calls us to pay attention to our internal landscape, especially our emotions .
She tells us that it’s okay to feel and to soften, as long as we have sought out and cultivated our safe spaces. Under the light of the Sagittarius Sun, She is calling for us to practice forgiveness as a form of self-care... because forgiveness requires us to love ourselves enough to set ourselves free .
Right now, close your eyes and breathe deeply.. one.. two... three times. Imagine yourself floating in a warm ocean, with waves gently washing over you... cleansing every single piece of you. Feel your body relax as you release the tension and let the heaviness fall away .
In what memories, have you been holding unforgiveness ?
What would happen if you released it, to make space for you to hold more -
More of you? .
As the Moon continues through Cancer today, take some time to wrap yourself in your Mother Love. It’s waiting for you with open arms 🙏🏽 .

I like making wreaths from blueberry bushes.
Its a task to be taken slowly, and always always ask permission and apologise for the "haircut".
There's thorns that will cut, break into your skin, sting and remind you nature is alive.
But so are you.
Do not fret if the first circle is not round enough, as you add more branches, as they entwine, you can adjust the shape.
From then, get creative with what you collect from nature walks, add a crystal or two for protection, or add as the weeks go by.
By January (or spring) give it back to Mother Earth...
The first Christmas wreath I ever made was in a small kitchen overlooking the city.
It was also when I finally learned how to pronounce the word.
When you have a half-American partner, little things like that stick.
Celebrations are taken over the top - because he missed home so much and in a way, so did I.
I tell people he's not my best friend nor ex partner, we are "related by baby" which in a way, makes us family, always, like weird siblings who make fun of each other, support and know exactly how to annoy while making us giggle.
And now, whenever I make one of these, I always think back to that little house, where love grew so big, it flooded everything.

I know we've still got a little bit to go but just look at all the memories and gorgeous faces that were part of my life this year!
So much learning and collaborating, and so much love.
A bit of gratitude for all the Aussie adventures I was lucky enough to go on this year and for every single one of your three thousand and something faces. Thank you for sticking around and giving me a platform. I wouldn't have the job and life that I have without you 😘
HOW DO YOU START LOVING YOURSELF?☝🏻👢💖 Someone asked me the other day how do you start a self love journey.
While I don’t think there’s an exact recipe because were all individual and heal in different ways, I do think the essence is the same: get curious about why you feel you haven’t been loving yourself in the way your hearts needing, start listening to what it needs and then follow that voice through caring for yourself one step at time💕
Maybe it’s by doing something as simple as painting your nails or turning your cell phone phone off and reading a book or maybe it’s a bigger motion of telling someone how you feel or finding a therapist and going to therapy to understand yourself🤘🏼
It doesn’t really matter how big or tiny a step it is it just matters that you listen and follow what YOU NEED to begin🕯👢
When I started on my self love journey I didn’t really realize I was actually starting on a new journey I just got tired of believing I wasn’t enough and did something about it, took action around it. I wanted to unravel that belief, see where it came from, understand it and decide what I really believe. I started journaling. Then the next baby step I felt was to create a morning ritual. Then for a while the steps were just showing up to my mornings and staying committed to that. Nothing more.
Then it became doing daily workouts for me. I had to give myself permission to do one thing at a time and to me that’s having grace with myself🦋 It’s a step by step journey you continue repeating, always listening to what the next step is for you.
I don’t think we ever stop our journey of loving ourselves because we arrive at a mountain top I think we continuously deepen our love for ourselves and it just gets richer✨
If you’re searching for power, happiness, freedom or peace in other people, in money, in success, in status, you’re going to have to turn your back on all that and turn your heart in. That’s where the first step is🔥💕🔥 YOUR POWER IS IN LOVING YOURSELF FIERCELY #fierceforward#fierceforwardjewelry
