New Moon in Scorpio 11/11!

If you’ve been waiting patiently for the magic to surface in your life, the time has arrived my cosmic friend!

The New Moon in Scorpio arrives on 11/11/2015 at 12:57PM EST.  There are SO many juicy bits of what this all actually means. I break it down in my video below, however here are the highlights:

New Moon: This is when the Moon starts a fresh new cycle. I like to look at it as the next chapter in the story of your life. Thinking in this way, what goals and desires are you ready to move forward? Or what in your life is currently working that you are ready to go next level with?

Scorpio: On 11/11 the Sun AND Moon will be hanging out in the sign of Scorpio. This is a very intense and energetically aligned sign, meaning that anything in it’s path becomes unstoppable. Where are you ready to become an untethered force in your life?

11/11: Why is the date so freaking significant? The number 11 carries a vibration that asks us to look at our beliefs and see how they are being reflected out into our world. When it is doubled, it’s an opportunity to magnify these inner principles and even ask the cosmic world for direction. It’s also where the urban game of making a wish at 11:11 came to be!

2015: The year is super important too. When you add up 2+0+1+5 together, it equals 8. The number 8 holds the vibration of abundance and growth. Combined with the 11/11 energy, this day is transforming us to close the gap between what we desire and actually reaching obtainment. Remember that prosperity takes many layers and it may not just come through in money but also love, health and home as well.

For more, watch my video to learn how to really boost your “life power” during this ultra special day!

I also welcome you to join my New Moon 11/11 gathering! Details here! You can join me in NYC or via Live Audiostream and receive the recording later.

COSMIC MOON COURSE!

The Moon is ever so mysterious. Every night it illuminates the sky and creates the rise and fall of our ocean’s tides. Subconsciously, it represents our emotions and personal needs. It is our inner child and spontaneous self. Where the Sun controls the hard and masculine of the earth, the Moon carries our softness and feminine.

Every month there’s buzz about the New Moon or you look up to the sky and see a bright shiny Full Moon. You know there is something to it or perhaps even something you should be doing for it, but what? There are many different resources however it gets pretty overwhelming trying to keep it straight. Perhaps there is another way, an intuitive knowing as to how to best go about the ways of the moon….

I have been following the Moon for quite some time and I’ve learned much in my participatory studies. Unlike the Sun which takes 365 days to move through a rotation, the moon completes it’s cycle in just 28-29 days. Instead of following yearly goals and intentions, we can set monthly ones along the moon’s path. Re-directing our lifestyle in such a way creates more satisfaction and fulfillment in our every day.

The power of the Moon amplifies when we draw in Astrology. The moon sets it’s track through the Zodiac wheel and by comparing which Moon phase is in a particular sign, we can learn how to best operate, manifest and feel throughout our day. We figure out which days are best for abundance and others that are better to retreat and hide out. The combination of Astrology and the Moon phases is a gift that blends the cosmos and science to enhance our state of being and opportunities in life!

So how do the two work together exactly? What does it mean to have a Moon sign and how does that play into the cycles? How can you manifest properly and work best with the energy? It often becomes too much to consider and then it gets ignored or we kind of hope we are doing it right… Know the feeling?

As an astrologist, it is my responsibility to raise awareness of the Moon and how it effects us. I also know it can seem confusing and it’s my intention to share this in a way that is relatable AND memorable! Ready to rock out each New and Full Moon to it’s fullest? Or impress your friends by starting your own Moon circle?

Enter the Moon Magic course!

In this program, we’ll track the moon cycles and connect to them in a way that is simple and makes sense!

There is also a Facebook group to share Moon intentions, ask questions and hold space for each other. Essentially, participating in this course for one Moon cycle will amplify your manifesting magical powers!

How Not to Run from Love during Venus Retrograde!

Every day the planets move through the universe, making strides forward and radiating their “essence”. Every planet has a role to play, for example Mars controls our physical actions and Jupiter oversees expansion. The collective energies of the planets work to keep our lives flowing and in order. And just like us, the planets need a little rejuvenation and reassessment too. That’s where retrograde comes in. Most of us shudder at the word, given it’s bad rap from recent Mercury go-arounds, however retrograde doesn’t have to be a negative occurrence and can actually be momentous to our self healing and growth.

On July 25th Venus, the planet of love and passion, will go retrograde until September 6, 2015. If you’re thinking your love life will be doomed during this time, think again! Venus retrograde is an amazing opportunity to mend our hearts and reconnect us to what we truly desire.

Venus doesn’t retrograde very often (roughly every 20 months), however its absolutely fitting that it falls right after the New Moon in Cancer on July 15th. The moon had signified for many a fresh start. Leaving behind what could no longer be carried into the rest of 2015 and while painful for some, knowing it was for the best. Many people left relationships, experienced loss or sought out recovery to deep addictions. The Venus retrograde (starting off in the practical and grounding sign of Virgo before moving back into Leo July 31st) will aid in allowing us to nurture our hearts and maintain that steady motion ahead.

hands.sunset

How can you best maximize the effects of Venus’s retrograde? Below are my top tips for becoming a galactic all-star throughout this phase!

Plan More Downtime

You may be feeling more sensitive during this transit and as such you want to give yourself the space to move through it, as oppose to overloading your schedule and getting frazzled. Create more time for meditation and go to yoga classes. Treat yourself to a massage or mani/pedi. The vibes are all about self care and it’s important to extend love to the beautiful vessel aka your body, that carries your sweet heart.

Find Out what Makes your Heart Sing!

View Venus Retrograde as a call to action! What is it that truly makes your heart beat faster with joy? How is your life currently aligned with your passions? Venus will move back into the sign of Leo at the end of July, asking you to take inventory of your passion projects. If you find that your life isn’t reflecting all it could, it’s time to bring those hidden talents out from under the rug and brush off the dust! Reconnecting with the hobbies you enjoy will make this retrograde a more enjoyable experience and possibly bring about new opportunities once the transit fades out in September.

Redefine your Standards

Whether in a relationship or single, this is a gorgeous time to take a serious look at your standards when it comes to love. How is love aligned in your life currently? Do you view it as expansive and exciting or is it hopeless and settling? Again, this is a time for what it is that YOU want. What does love look like in your life? Feel like? Sound like? Even taste and smell like? (hey now). Make a list of how love could be expressed more fully in your daily routine and then start implementing those items! When you start radiating out love on a regular basis, you’ll attract it right back! Also take a look at where you’ve been subconsciously singling out new love by staying attached to your independence or fixated on a certain way it’s suppose to go. Remember that love in it’s true essence is a feeling, not an object. When you allow yourself to flow in the stream of love, you’ll get back the feelings you desire first and the form will be an afterthought.

Stay Strong.

Our hearts may be more raw and vulnerable during this time, so we may seek comfort in a past relationship (i.e. respond to that late night ‘I miss you’ text from our ex). This is an opportunity to stand up for yourself and hold steady! Giving in to an old hurt will just extend out more confusion and slow down the healing process. Venus retrograde is like an accelerate to releasing our heart’s pains so remain true and take advantage of it’s extra nurturing vibes. Honor the initial decisions you made and sooner rather than later opportunities that are much more true and satisfying will be presented to you!

How I Successfully Willed Myself to Gain 20 Pounds in a Year

Today marks the one year anniversary of me trying something different. Of the turning point where I realized that certain relationships and situations had to go because they were ultimately distracting me from the big picture of where I wanted to be. A year ago I launched my first Astrology forecast video, setting the tone that I was serious about launching my dreams and bridging together a purpose and a passion. To celebrate, I’m holding a live call on July 9th at 8:30pm EST and you can sign up here. I would love to have you there as I share how I easily blend Astrology into my everyday life!

Up to this point however, there was always something nagging me. A nasty fear. It was the worry that I would gain weight and thus lose my credibility. It was that constant concern that actually willed me to manifest what I was so turned off by and in the span of 12 months, I managed to put 20 pounds onto my being.  As much as I hated it, there was a strange satisfaction from my ego, taunting me that everything I was building in my outside world could crumble if I don’t get this in check. And with every pound, it was confirming such.

It wasn’t until last week when the universe literally pushed me to my knees on my run, that I realized I needed to shift.

The weight gain was two fold really. At will, I’m an addict. When things are too good to be true or completely unknown, I reach. It use to be more brash substances such as alcohol or drugs however I’ve since learned to not to reach for those in desperate times. Instead, I went back to my old stomping grounds, food. The excitement of making my dreams a reality, of having people turn to me for guidance and being an expert in something was incredible. I didn’t know what to do with the rush of feelings so I grounded myself with food. Every single time. A successful event meant pizza to follow. A client makes a break through and I praise them afterward with ice cream. Instead of sitting with the glee, I had to transfer it to another source. My world was expanding, and apparently that applied to my waist line too!

There is also a pattern in our society, that when you’re thin you get attention. Either flattery or concern. When you’re overweight, everyone leaves you alone. After puberty, I was typically on the heavier side and was in a constant pursuit of body normalcy. However every time I lost pounds, I was hit back with waves of attention which I hated. People want to know how I did it or if I went overboard. I couldn’t never win. I just wanted to enjoy my healthy body and dress it up in fun new outfits. I didn’t like the new standard of approval I had to meet and would constantly fall back to my old ways. And as of recent, with launching a new business, I found comfort in the fact that I could hide behind the weight and no one would bring up my body or dissect it if I happen to lose more. It also kept me from other things that would distract me, like dating. I subconsciously created an armor to protect anything from getting in my way. Not stopping to realize that the more you close off, the more space you block from ultimately expanding in.

It is only fitting, a year later and steadily in the business I wanted (and truly am in love with), that this issue reach it’s peak. When I fell last week, scraping my hands and bruising my knees, it left me out of commission and I felt a whole new wave of appreciation for my body. It limited my ability to move freely and go about my day to day as I come to know. However that’s a freaking good thing. I needed a change up so I could see that this trending agony of weight gain could stop. And it’s more than the actual weight and image concerns, for me, it’s about going deeper. Of realizing I deserve this life I have created. I am worth it and have value to bring to others. And most importantly, I don’t have to ground my light. Those feel good vibes I get are gorgeous and meant to be contained, not weakened by an outer source. Today, I’m making the commitment to drop my armor. To embrace my life with love and reflect that back onto my body. To nurture the vessel that holds my beautiful soul. Today I know longer have to perfect anything. I can bask in the perfection that is the right now and the moments to follow will follow suit.

If you’re looking for ways to strengthen your relationship with food and your body, I encourage you to check out my friend and mentor Gabby Bernstein’s program Finally Full.

And here’s just a few more tips from me to you:

1. Full Acceptance. When I was building my business, there was a fear that maybe this wasn’t meant to be. That my dreams weren’t possible. And so the weight gain was my sneaky way of sabotage. However as much as I tried, my business still grew and I have a following of gorgeous people with the biggest hearts. I saw that they loved me for ME. Not for how my body looked. And honestly, I could be at any size and they would appreciate what I was offering them. And that is because I deliver from the heart. When I am with a client, a group or shooting a video, I am speaking from love and fully on your side. So if you are feeling a disconnect from your body, start to explore the value of what you offer the world. How are you a giver among family and friends? Take full acceptance of that role you hold and treasure it. Give it real worth. And understand that you are not defined by how you look but how your heart radiates and make others feel.

2. Come clean. I had to get real with myself and even vulnerable to shift this growing concern. It’s not easy when you are viewed as a expert in one area to have to admit defeat in another. However I knew that by vocalizing what’s going on (and not writing it off or cracking jokes like I usually do), I could get the encouragement and support I needed in a way to keep me going.

3. Balance. As with anything, moderation is so key. When I look back to my successful moments of a healthy lifestyle, it was filled with exercise I enjoyed, nourishing foods and fun moments with friends where we could explore good food together. It wasn’t the moments of binge eating in front of the TV or using adderall to keep my weight in check. It wasn’t being mean to myself or restricting my intake. Channel the fond memories of food, health and body movement and start to implement those back into your life. Make the joyous feelings of what a vivacious, satisfied body and life feel like the priority.

Welcome to June! Full Moon in Sagittarius & the end of Mercury Retrograde!

Welcome to June my gypsy friends! We are deep in the season of change; prepping for summer and shifting into new possibilities. As we move into June, it’s a time for self care and raising the bar for expansion in your life! Are you ready to take action?

We are more than half way through Mercury Retrograde (onset was 5/19) and it will re-direct on June 11th. In the meantime, breathe through the technical difficulties and mix ups and instead carve out more time in your schedule for YOU. Mercury retrograde isn’t a time to be screwed over however one to explore where in your life you need change and also to reflect more from within and not be so needy on the opinions of others. It’s okay to be a little more selfish and ask for what you need or say no to a situation that just isn’t working for you. It will allow everything to re-adjust for the better once we clear out of the retrograde.

Another big milestone is the Full Moon in Sagittarius on June 2nd (onset 12:19pm EST). This is a fiery culmination asking you to set your sights high and go BIG! In my latest video, I discuss how to create your moon manifestation for ultimate success!

After viewing and creating your moon ritual, let me know about it! What’s your big target item you’re ready to charge forward with?  Realize that anything you desire is truly yours. The intuitive guidance we receive in life or those “hot” moments are just reminders from the cosmos that we are ready. It may not mean it will happen overnight, however it does support that if you stick with it and hold the faith, everything and then some will carry forth in your life. Trust me, I know!  Through my patience and work with the universal flow, I’ve culminated much of my goals over the last year and am happily vibrating in the space I desired now! So it can happen, truly. It’s just a mix of your willingness to show up and letting fate do it’s thing.

Happy Moon manifesting and I’ll see you for the next mid-month forecast!

My Lesson in Surrender at Kundalini Yoga Graduation

Just one week ago, I completed my Kundalini Yoga Teacher training. It was a culmination of many hours, classes, daily meditation, readings and workshops over the span of 6 months. There was ego defiance, moments of bliss, connections with beautiful, spirited souls and yes, even tiredness for those morning Sadhanas we had to attend at 4:30am. And I did it. I completed something that was bigger than me and when you go through an experience as such, your world starts to expand too.

I was gifted with the spiritual name Sahej Anand, which means “lioness who finds bliss in the present moment and spreads joy to others”. It rang so true to my soul. A big part of my awakening 5 years ago was learning this radical concept of being present and feeling a sense of obligation to raise awareness to others as well. All in my best efforts to deliver with a smile of course!

And on my final day of Kundalini teacher training, I received my test from the universe. To really see if the spiritual teachings could be applied when reality hit. It was an early morning start, so I took a cab to Golden Bridge, where my training was being held. In a daze, I slipped out of the vehicle and up to the lofty yogic space. It was only a few moments until I realized my phone was no longer with me. I went into a sheer panic. Not my phone. Not now. I was able to track it and see that it had made it’s way over to the East Village, however there was nothing more I could do but wait. In my distraught state, I couldn’t participate in the group activities and instead curled up in a ball on my mat and replayed how upset I was that this was happening. And what disturbed me more wasn’t so much the fact that I may need to buy a new phone and the added inconvenience. Nope, it was the pure realization that I was addicted to being connected to an outside source at all times…

At that point something started to shift. I realized I was upset because of MY problems, MY desires, MY needs. When the meaning of this whole training really had nothing to do with me. It had to do with something far greater, and to find the discipline to step to the side of my ego to explore it. From there, more voices started to come through, reminding me of my spiritual name. That all that really matters is this present moment. The rest will sort itself out. In the meantime, I simply had to surrender. Surrender to the idea that I knew better. Surrender to things going my way. And ultimately, surrender to thinking I knew what was best for me. So I let go. Hard.

The next thing I knew my body rose up into meditation and I was smiling the whole rest of the morning. I felt the pure joy of what it was like to be completely one with spirit and to not have any worries of any outside circumstances. Quite simply, it was bliss.

My Kundalini sister who had been graciously tracking my phone, alerted me to a change in it’s location. It was still chilling in the same spot, however the word “rebirth” appeared in it’s place. I knew it was the Angels way of signaling me that I was accepting my lesson and everything was going to be okay. I demonstrated that when in a crisis I could apply my spiritual linkage to see me through.

(screenshot that was taken at time of sighting, presently if you search on Google maps this can’t be found…)

Shortly after, a woman named Sophia rang my friend’s phone to assure me she had my device. She thought I had left it at her after party, which clearly had not occurred being at yoga since the early morning. She went on further to say that she’d be near Golden Bridge and would drop it off that afternoon. Just like that, my phone had found it’s way home to me. I didn’t have do a thing.

And again, this is more than just losing a phone. It was a lesson in surrender and being truly present. That nothing is rightfully yours until you can truly prove you’d be okay without it. That goes for anything, relationships, money, food, jobs… you name it. The universe is the driving force and when we can be the passenger and not bark out the directions from the back seat we come to find that we can be delivered exactly where we need to be. I fully believe my phone was returned to me only because I made the choice to be okay without it and to trust. To be able to sit with myself in the present and not ruminate the possible scenarios in my mind.

I invite you to use this as an opportunity to see the areas in your life you may be too attached to. Where you may think you know best and if anything were to get in the way you’d be a mess. Realize that divine intervention is a gift. It’s an exploration into the unknown, a deeper side of your being you may not have seen otherwise. It can be so exhausting to always have to be the one in control. So what if there was another way? And all it required of you was to trust? When we flow into that stream of faith, we open up the space for possibilities. And with such a vast and infinite universe we live in, I’m pretty sure an opportunity or two will land it’s way on your path.
