“If you travel far enough, one day you will recognize yourself
coming down the road to meet you.

The moon is an ancient symbol for the deep Feminine
that resides within all of us.
She reminds us of our cyclical nature, and holds the promise of renewal and transformation. I invite you to join me and find guidance in the gentle, reflective light of the moon.

Light of the Moon

Things take on a different look beneath the moon than beneath the sun. And it well might be that to the Spirit the light of the moon would appear to yield the truer illumination.”
