New Moon is the time to plant intentions — and Libra is the sign of relationships and partnerships. Libra is ruled by Venus, so there is in increased desire for love, harmony, and beauty in our lives at this time.

now that you’re all grown up, who is your tribe?

Invitation to Write Past the Mind and into the Chakras

Often, to write powerfully, even if only for ourselves, we have to move past what we “think” we should write. Have you ever asked yourself what your fears are about writing?

You don’t have to share your work with anyone, but if you are “dying” to tell a story and are afraid, chances are there is a part of you that is suffering for not letting it out.

Are you ready to let go of your intellectual understanding of what is “socially acceptable writing” and allow yourself to really say what you need to say?
Are you ready to let writing move through your body, into your energetic being, and trust what it’s saying to you?
