I’m in a truly liminal travel state for an extended period of time, and — as usual — the universe is offering me some lessons along the way. However, I’m not ready to talk about them yet, being in media res. Then, just a few days ago, a reader asked me what the heck I […]
Later this week, I’ll be leading a full moon ritual with JaguarMoon Coven. The ritual is one of healing, taking advantage of Virgo’s natural energies.
