The last week has been all about bringing these babies into the world.
These are the two that lived.
More death than new life …and yet the life that came through is so precious and sweet.

So this…and plant tending, a little teaching, a little study, some important conversations, some deep internal work…caring for children and their new phases and growth.
and man, this eclipse and these retrogrades.
Whew!

Things are sprouting, growing slowly, simmering.
New offerings are a comin’ but I’m learning not to rush. And also hopefully learning that when it’s time it’s time even when I don’t feel ready.

Looking toward Solstice, feeling these cycles so deeply…

I hope you are well in the world friends.

SOLAR ECLIPSE: Wander and Root Down
Eclipses shine a spotlight on areas of our lives that have been forgotten, hidden or simply ignored. The Solar Eclipse on June 10th at 6:51am eastern time is in sidereal Ta**us with an overarching focus on property and finances, and on being rooted and grounded. Taking a good look at these areas of our lives is an important part of 2021 as a whole, with eclipses triggering the reflection and encouraging meditation. Wherever the eclipse sits in our own birth charts shows additional areas asking for more intention and attention.

When we go deeper into this solar eclipse energy, we see that it takes place in the final degrees of sidereal Ta**us, in Mrigashirsha nakshatra, a sign known for its gentle and kind spirit. It is a seeker at heart who will go the distance, finding the nourishment it needs along the way. While it is up for adventure, its ultimate pursuit is that of enlightenment. This eclipse highlights our retreat spaces, our quiet time, our personal meditative practices – or conversely, how we might try to escape and numb ourselves from this journey we are all on.

We have also been working with Mars in Cancer the last week (until July 21), which is a challenging connection for Mars who is a feisty fighter, likes to take direct action, often times creating friction for change and activism. While in the sign of Cancer, it goes inward and is more emotional, quiet and indirect. It can get overwhelmed by feelings and unsure how to clearly express itself. However, a beautiful manifestation of this time is a focus on the home and heart, and on protecting and nurturing the vulnerable ones around us.

Total Lunar Eclipse May 26 @7:13am ET in Anuradha: Release & Reveal

Eclipses are intense karmic moments which shine a spotlight on what’s been hidden, allowing truths to emerge. Personal revelations & shifts are prominent during the days surrounding an eclipse, especially if our charts are being directly affected by the eclipse degrees (11:16 sidereal Scorpio). We even see secrets coming out of the woodwork & often in very public ways. Depending on its placement in our personal charts, eclipses can usher in massive changes suddenly, or help us turn our focus to areas in our lives ready to be worked on.

The classic Vedic texts say it is best for all of us to use the time surrounding an eclipse for meditation & internal reflection. The Scorpio energy of this particular total lunar eclipse is great at helping us release old stuck emotions. This eclipse reminds us our daily practices & personal self care & friend check-ins are paramount over the next year.

This lunar eclipse is in a beautiful degree of sidereal Scorpio called Anuradha, whose name means “bright star” in Sanskrit, & whose driving motivations are to calmly preserve & be a supportive friend. It is ruled by Mars & Saturn, so having a plan and taking slow, steady action is one of its fortes. Just remember: we have plenty of retrogrades happening over the coming weeks (Mercury retrograde on May 29) which encourage us to reflect on where we’ve been and even adjust our plans.

Anuradha’s symbol of the lotus blossom reminds us blooming takes time... and that we are still capable of flowering even when we feel we’ve been stuck in the mud or confused by the cloudy waters. Reflecting on these expressions in our own lives is encouraged, as well as keeping these ideas with us as we move ahead in time. We can ask ourselves (about the past + for the days to come):

🌸Where have there been struggles?
🌸Has support shown up, and in what form?
🌸When have we been the support?
🌸What seemed murky?
🌸What is now showing its potential?
🌸What had to be released in order to grow into this new expression?
🌸What personal care is being done to support the release and reveal process?

making up a really special skin toner here, from a 700 year old recipe.

Some of you will know just what this is just by seeing these pics and hearing that this will macerate for a month before the next steps.

I’m preparing these new beauty products in very small batches with love, care, gratitude and full of plant magic (which = nutrients, wisdom & healing support).

Some will be from the wisdom of my own ancestors and some will be from the wisdom of Āyurveda and some will be from the wisdom of of Native cultures in these lands where I live.

I’ll be sharing these new nourishing creations for skin and well-being soon, over @mamayurveda_medicinals - I really look forward to having you try them ✨

Meanwhile, if you’re feeling confused by all the polarization, name calling, canceling, fear mongering and the like- you are very much not alone.
And there is always hope. And support. And love.

I am working with this...having many conversations, planning, creating...along with so many friends and colleagues- there is support, there are tools and there is love.
Please don’t despair...
and please feel free to reach out if you’re feeling alone ♥️

The birds are still singing, the trees are still talking, the flowers are growing. We belong to the earth ... don’t forget 🙏🏼

Happy International Midwives Day !
@rebekarose505 @healdove52 @jazzmom6 @alchemybirthandwellness , @whapio_and_thematrona , Elizabeth C
And the other amazing midwives who’ve taught me (a fraction) of what you know, and who were with me in my own birthing journeys.

After my own first home birth I felt the call to stand at the gates of birth.
These amazing women took me by the hand and began leading me down the path.

After my own second birthing at home experience I decided to pause that journey and assist women with fertility, pregnancy and postpartum in other ways.

Both of my births were very difficult and it took a lot of support to keep me home. With the birth of my son I experienced a very difficult 2nd stage and hemorrhage - my midwives (including my own mother in law) were amazing and saved my life.

Deep bow of gratitude for all who walk this sleepless, intrepid path. The path our great grandmothers have walked for millennia.

You have my deepest respect for all that you do, there is no more important work in this world.

Happy Beltane friends!

I'm offering a FREE class Sunday May 2nd at 4pm Mountain (3pm Pacific/6pm Eastern).

Introduction to Dināchārya - the Art & Science of harnessing time for self transformation.
Live online, hosted by LaGrace Integral Life Center.

Dināchārya (‘daily-routine’) is a concept
in Āyurvedic medicine that looks at the cycles of nature and bases daily activities around these cycles.

How do we make decisions about which practices and rituals to do, when to do them, and what may be right for you? What to eat and when?

This session is only 1 hour which is why it's just an introduction, but you'll have the opportunity also to sign up for my 2-hour Dināchārya Intensive on May 13th, where we'll continue the journey, and I'll show you how to build your own dināchārya.

Full Moon in Swati: Nourish the Seedlings
🌱
April 26th at 23:32 eastern time, we will experience a Full Moon in Swati, a beautiful degree of sidereal Libra that connects to the potential and determination of the seedling. It strives to grow and flourish, pushes through the soil, bursting through the earth towards the Sun to become all it’s destined to be. While it can weather the storm and grow in the face of adversity, it needs proper care and nourishment in the beginning. This is where we are now: our “seedlings” are at a tender stage beginning to sprout, the new ideas and directions just beginning to take root. We need to mindfully nurture them and ourselves now.
🌱
Swati connects to the goddess Saraswati, who brings in her strong suits: personal development, education, communication, and music. This is a wonderful time to focus on these areas of life, and to see what systems and modalities are calling you. Keep the sprouting seedling in mind as you progress. There is no jumping into full manifestation, so patience and persistence are necessary.
🌱
This Full Moon has its hands full. It’s connecting with almost all of the planets, either directly or indirectly, meaning it’s negotiating with a lot of different personalities. Make sure you aren’t pushing yourself until you’re threadbare this week and next. Overextending is possible even while in a growth mindset (and sometimes especially!), and with the current Mars in Gemini / Sun, Mercury, Venus in Aries energy (recall the recent “vroom vroom” forecast).
🌱
Thankfully this specific Moon reminds us that alone time, meditation and pranayama are keys to unwinding and rooting back into ourselves. Grounding visualization techniques while meditating are also helpful with this Full Moon. As Swati is ruled by Venus and Rahu, it does well with abhyanga: Ayurvedic self massage done before bathing (scroll down for more info on the benefits and how to: https://www.lexneon.com/resources or check out link in bio). Try to find space for YOU over the next few days.
