Gemini is a much more light-hearted energy than all the earth energy we have been dealing with – though over the next few months we’ll have Venus, Mercury, the Sun and the New Moon squaring Neptune and Mars in Pisces, creating the energy of confusion. Embrace the energy of not-knowing! How to do that? Focus on your imagination and what you want to create. Very open-ended energy. Be like a child – remember how you used to play the game of Make Believe? Let it be like that. Be in that space of play, let it be real – you can always set an alarm to bring you back home in time for dinner.Read More

How the Matter(s) Collective came about ArtBox participants were split into two groups and tasked to create pop-up gallery events to take place in May. It […]Read More
The New Moon in Taurus is coming up on Monday, May 18th. I came across this article I wrote for Deer Spirit Reiki News back in 2009 and it still rings true – take some time out to set intentions, Taurus New Moon is fertile. Springtime New Beginnings – Open Heart, Open Possibilities by Holly Troy […]Read More
Most of us want to improve some area of our lives, however at times this can be easier said than done. They say that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. This is very true. Another definition could also be asking the same questions over and over again and expecting a different result. I was reflecting to myself the other day, on the importance of asking ourselves the right questions.Read More
I borrowed this post from one of my workshops. The exercise was based on writing and using the energy of the new moon. Tomorrow is the New Moon – why not use its energy? If you don’t have a ritual that you already do, give this one a try . . .Read More
New Moon Prayer Dear Universe, I would like a break please. Some help. Financially, emotionally, romantically, physically, creatively, spiritually – help with any or all of the above. I’ve flat out had it. I give up. Do what you will, I have no clue how to do anything anymore. Thank you. HollyRead More
Tonight is the new moon in Pisces. For tonight, or, for the next two nights, it is a good time to set intentions. I propose an intention setting exercise this evening. A few years ago I learned an exercise similar to the one I am presenting here while I was going through a particularly tough […]Read More
Writing the Energetic Body – Shedding Inhibition and Divining Your Intentions – 28 Days of Writing Past the Mind and into the Chakras
New Moon in Pisces, Monday March 11, 2013 starts the next class!
New Moon is the time to plant intentions — combine that with fertile Pisces ruled by numinous Neptune and this is sure to be a very abundantly creative session.
We will begin the session with an intention setting ritual and start our exploration at the crown chakra and work our way down to the root, the earth, our place of manifestation.
Get ready to explore possibility, make (re)discoveries, release inhibition, and develop a writing practice.Read More
Eighteen for Eighteen – print of Ganesha
The Elephant-headed God, Ganesha, is most revered as the Remover of Obstacles. He is often the first God honored at the beginning of rituals in order to ensure all blockages to success are removed at the very start.
Invoke Lord Ganesha before your next project! Place an image of him near your altar, or anywhere you’d like energy to be free-flowing.
Saturn is moving into Scorpio. Now is the perfect time to remove articles. According to incredibly compassionate and down-to-earth astrologer Anne Ortelee:
The week ahead is designed for releasing the stuff you no longer want, desire or need. We are in the dark phase of the moon, moving toward a New Moon at 22:32 Libra next Monday. The New Moon will be the FIRST New Moon while Saturn is in Scorpio, a kind of inauguration so to speak.
Eighteen is a lucky number. There are ten of these prints left.Read More
For three weeks, we’ll explore integrating intentions and the mind/body with movement, meditation, and daily writing exercises. Why three weeks? Because three is a lucky number, we’ll explore each of the seven chakras for three days a piece, and, I’ve heard that it takes 21 days to instill a habit. If you want to write, this is a great way to start a daily practice.Read More
During New Moon Yoga we will:
* learn about the energy of the new moon and the astrological sign it is in
* receive a guided meditation and affirmations for the new moon
* practice asanas that correspond with the moon astrologically
* make an altar with personal objects to power up our intentions
* create intentions and send them out to the universe with music and a celebration
* ground ourselves and know that our intentions are received
I received this in an email today from my teacher and friend, Geordie Numata of Deer Spirit Reiki. The Sun/Moon/Eclipse conjunction falls in 19 deg. Cancer. The Sabian Symbol for this degree is “Venetian Gondoliers Giving A Serenade”, which evokes a very pleasant image of gondoliers ferrying delighted passengers through the canals of Venice while […]Read More
