Facing my Shadow as Mercury Retrogrades in Scorpio

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” —Carl Jung This Mercury in Retrograde (which is in the mysterious, deep-diving sign of Scorpio), I’ve unexpectedly been hit with the task of facing some shadow aspects of myself. What’s funny is, I’m dealing with familiar themes but almost feel more awakened to them now. More triggeredContinue reading “Facing my Shadow as Mercury Retrogrades in Scorpio”

Stop. Think About “The New Normal” For YOU

STOP. This Libra season I ask, how does one find balance if one is always on the go? I believe many people are spiritually awakening or at least questioning reality as we’ve known it, but as we live our day to day lives, it can be quite easy to get sucked back into the cycleContinue reading “Stop. Think About “The New Normal” For YOU”

In October, We Celebrate Life and Death

I love October! Fall is in full effect, the weather is cooler but still enjoyable, pumpkins are abound, and we have the celebratory times of Halloween/Samhain/Dia de los Muertos/All Souls Day. Though Libra rides out much of this month, on the 22nd, we have the start of my second favorite season, that of Scorpio. ScorpioContinue reading “In October, We Celebrate Life and Death”

We Shouldn’t Externalize “The Revolution”

The revolution won’t be televised. Why not? Because I honestly believe the revolution starts within. It starts with how we think about ourselves. Our outlook on our own lives, the intentions behind our actions, the way we prioritize our health and mental states. The little things we can do in our lives to help bringContinue reading “We Shouldn’t Externalize “The Revolution””

Sometimes I Float In Between

I only know the light because I’ve lived through the dark.My body, buried in the heavy, damp soil.Ready to decompose with the earth.Destined for more,My soul wouldn’t rest. Though suffocated by the soil,Spirit clawed its way through the dirt that tried to encapsulate it,simultaneously being kept alive by way of the earth’s minerals and nutrients.Continue reading “Sometimes I Float In Between”

The Shadow Self: Are You Aware of Your Projections?

According to Carl Jung (Jungian psychology), we all have a shadow, and it’s the unconscious aspect of our personality. Our egos choose not to identify with it; the integration of our shadow self and ego can be quite challenging. Our shadows are our own personal “unknowns.” The parts of ourselves that we don’t want toContinue reading “The Shadow Self: Are You Aware of Your Projections?”

“A Room Without Books Is Like…”

“A room without books is like a body without a soul” -Cicero I love having books around. Especially journals. I’m always writing. The last book I finished was The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho. One of my favorite quotes from the book is: “And when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you toContinue reading ““A Room Without Books Is Like…””

Rollercoaster of Emotions

“How do you feel?”  “I’m good, I feel fine. Just some adjusting to not going out to bars and restaurants, otherwise I’m dealing.” That’s my typical response. Under the surface, I’m distracted. Some days I’m more focused than others. Some days, I’m able to focus on getting work done, doing more research about work, andContinue reading “Rollercoaster of Emotions”

I Miss the Moon

I miss the moon. I’m outside less and don’t see it as often.I feel like something is missing in my life. Food for my soul. The featured image was taken by me in Brooklyn, right before April 7th’s full moon in Libra. And now, we’re in the waxing phase of the new moon that fellContinue reading “I Miss the Moon”

How Do You Find Your Life Path?

I keep wondering if I’m going down the right path in life. Often, I feel like I’m wandering. Sometimes I feel like I’ve got an idea of what my purpose is, then I question it when faced with some other plausible path to take. (It’s 2:22 as I type this). I know that my confusionContinue reading “How Do You Find Your Life Path?”
