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.
“If you travel far enough, one day you will recognize yourself
coming down the road to meet you.
And you will say – YES.”
