The Fall Equinox- known as Mabon in Pagan traditions- marks the halfway point between the Summer Solstice and the Winter Solstice. It’s a point on the calendar that marks a time of perfect balance where there is equal day to night. It is also known as the second harvest. It’s a time to celebrate all the bounty and abundance that we are reaping from our glorious, life-giving Earth.
Making this brew on the Equinox always feels so magical; it captures the energy of the season! With every herb you add a little more magic, a little more gratitude, and set your intentions for the season as it brews!

Full moons can reveal our own inner potential. It’s like the light is shining onto a part of ourselves that we keep hidden; a part of ourselves we know is powerful and deeply connected to something greater, but we keep that part enveloped within ourselves our of fear. A fear that if we connect to it we will discover our own potential and greatness. (And sometimes that fear is that in connecting, we will find nothing.)
Full moons offer a portal of time where we can deepen our relationship to our subconscious as well as open up our inner sight and intuition. During the full moon is a wonderful time to set intentions around healing, opening and deepening your intuition.
Read on for a simple ritual where you can open your intuition during the full moon.
Feeling ungrounded is a common feeling these days. Spending too much time on our phones, too much time indoors, and even eating a less than optimal diet can leave us feeling disconnected, uncentered, and simply not ourselves. Our bodies thrive when we’re connected to the Earth, when we see the sunrise and sunsets, and when we feed our body good food and water.
Through cleansing, connecting to our breath, grounding through a couple yoga poses, meditation and even eating the right foods, this ritual will leave you feeling rooted, fueled and ultimately grounded for your day. Anytime you need to get connected from within and to the Earth’s supportive energy, practice this simple ritual.
Gratitude is having an appreciation for all that you have in this moment. When gratitude arises, we begin to experience life differently; we begin to come more deeply into the present moment and experience joy for life, joy for all that we have, and joy because we begin to see how truly wealthy our life is. The practice of daily gratitude wakes us up spiritually and consciously, and gratitude really is the key to more abundance.

You hear a lot of talk about moon phases these days. Most of us are familiar with the new moon and full moon... but what about what's going on between these two? And what's the difference between intention setting during the waxing moon vs waning moon? It's not as complicated as you might think, and I'll break it down in a simple guide where I’ll discuss the four main moon phases: new moon, first quarter, full moon and third quarter.
Jupiter (a masculine planet) is the ruling planet of Sagittarius and Pisces and is the largest planet in our solar system- the "giant". So it's no wonder that the keyword often associated with Jupiter is "expansion". Jupiter's energy is expansive, adventurous, philosophical and optimistic. Jupiter is considered a benevolent planet as it's often associated with success, good fortune, luck and wealth. His optimist and enthusiastic energy wants us to grow, prosper, flourish and expand! (The entire Universe is expanding, so why would we ever want to stay the same?) Although Jupiter has many qualities that can support us, in this guide we'll focus on Jupiter's ability to help support our abundance and prosperity.
New moons mark the beginning of a new cycle; it's a time to think about what you want to draw toward you, what seeds you want to sow and ultimately watch grow as we move closer to the full moon. We can tap into this energy by setting our intentions on the new moon- planting our new seeds- and letting the potential of that intention build and grow stronger until the next full moon. With this ritual we are going to work with the new moon energy to call in more abundance and prosperity, and ignite our inner magic!
Summer Solstice is a celebration of the longest day of the year, where the Sun is at its fullest strength! It’s a time to honor and celebrate our life-giving Sun and the Earth’s bounty!

Happy Full Moon in Libra! Ruled by Venus (the planet of love + beauty), Libra likes to invite balance, beauty, emotional harmony and love.
This is a wonderful time to set intentions around finding balance in any aspect of your life, but particularly in the emotional realm. Because the full moon often illuminates our “shadows” and the stuff hanging out in our subconscious that we don’t want to deal with, this full moon may actually reveal the parts of your life where you need to work on finding balance.

This earthy full moon is all about structure, order and getting grounded.

Although it feels mundane, tidying can be a magical tool as you'll see below in our Full Moon in Virgo Cleaning Ritual!

Lighting a candle is an intentional act that invokes quiet, sacred space, magic and self care. It is a thing of beauty that can turn an ordinary space into something magical and sacred.

Below is a step-by-step guide on how to set up and create your own candle ritual at home for intention setting of any kind!
Aquarius- an air sign- rules the mind, thoughts, vision, imagination, self expression. Aquarius also tend to be great visionaries and inventors- their minds and ideas are vast and unique. Even though you may not be an Aquarius, you have the ability to tap into these qualities with the energy of this Moon. The image that keeps coming to me for this new moon is that of the hawk; soaring high in the sky, surveying the landscape and being guided by its inner compass. Here are 4 simple ways to honor this New Moon while embodying the energy of Aquarius.
