Happy Full Pink Moon!

The full pink supermoon peaks at 8:33pm PST, April 26th, in the water sign, Scorpio.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “April’s full Moon often corresponded with the early springtime blooms of a certain wildflower native to eastern North America: Phlox sibilant—commonly called creeping phlox or moss phlox—which also went by the name ‘moss pink.’ 

Thanks to this seasonal association, this full Moon came to be called the ‘Pink’ Moon!

Here's what my favorite astrologists have to say about this full moon:
I chose Ladybug for this lunation because one bit me a few days before the full moon.  According to,
www.spirit, this little bug is a, “ Symbol of good luck, the ladybug is said to give blessings to those she encounters. Master in the art of metamorphosis, she transforms from a hideous larva to a beautiful insect adorned with bright colors. This totem animal is a powerful ally to make important changes in your life and go through your life’s journey with ease. Let’s discover its encouraging message: Believe in yourself and dare!  Whether you meet the ladybug in reality or in a dream, it is generally considered a symbol of good luck and happiness.  Ladybug also symbolizes “innocence, true love, importance of lightness, divine intervention, and going beyond illusion.” Ladybug teaches us, “the importance of staying alert to avoid pitfalls and the need to know yourself well to make the right life choices.”
According to,, “The appearance of Ladybug symbolism heralds a time of good luck. Moreover, it means that wishes and dreams are coming to fruition. Higher goals and new heights are now possible. In other words, worries begin to dissipate and new happiness comes about. This spirit animal also cautions not to try to hard or go to fast to fulfill our dreams. Let things flow at their natural pace. In due course of time, our wishes will all come true.”

Morganite is a member of the beryl family and is sometimes referred to as “Pink Emerald”.  I chose it for this lunation because I recently acquired some of this rare light pink stone for the first time.  It’s energies have been calling to me and I plan to create a few one of a kind pieces to sell.
Morganite is a heart and upper crown chakra stone that inspires divine love and romance.  It
 activates, clears and energizes the heart chakra.  Morganite is said to bring more love into your life.  It has a gentle, innocent and soothing energy.  It also promotes healing, especially in women.  Morganite’s high yet gentle vibrations awaken the divine feminism within.  It helps to release feelings of guilt and shame.  It inspires compassion and understanding.  It is an amazingly powerful stone to use to strengthen romantic relationships.  It helps to increase patience and respect, both self respect and respect for others. Morganite helps men balance their feminine and masculine energies, while still maintaining their masculinity.  It increases intuition and strengthens spirituality.  Morganite helps fascilitate a better connection with one’s Angels and spirit guides.  


Our Tucson adventure began with seeing this coyote near my parent’s house.  He sat there while several people photographed him.  I think he was posing! 

We had a few days to hang out with my parents before setting up our booth for the Tucson Gem Show.  We explored the Sonoita Wine Country, just a little over an hour away.

This was our booth at the Miner’s Co-op showcase at this year’s Tucson Gem Show.  The show went from April 8th - 25th.  We had three separate “shops”, to the left was the raw materials and slabs, the middle section was cut stones and high end specimens, the right section was jewelry.


We sold quite a bit of our Avropium Gems Silica matrix stone find!  People were naturally drawn to it and we sold slabs, raw and cabochons.


 We had sections of Gigi Moon Jewelry, Cosmic Aether Jewelry and other jewelry. 


This year’s Tucson Gem Show was definitely strange compared to other years.  It wasn’t nearly as busy as last years.  There were only 25 out of 49 showcases. I was so grateful to be there even though it wasn’t as busy as normal.  The last day, a huge F-0 strength dust devil flew right into our booth.  Thank goodness our trailer took the brunt of it and only one canopy and a few pieces of jewelry were damaged.  It toppled over a few of the other vendors tents, too, but luckily no one was seriously injured.  We went out with a bang, I’d say!

The best part of having the gem show in April vs February was seeing the Saguaro cactus and other desert plants bloom.

 After the show ended, we spent some time with Scott’s “Viking” friend, Roark, who took us in a hike to see the, “ancients”.  Petroglyphs from thousands of years ago.



We saw the sun set about four different times as we hiked back.  It was absolutely gorgeous! 

My favorite score from the Tucson Gem Show was the elusive, unicorn rare BLUE GARNET!!!
For years, it was common knowledge in the gem world that Garnets come in every color BUT blue.  I’ve always believed they would discover a blue garnet in my life time, and, finally, they have!  What’s even more exciting is that they change color in different light!!

Behold, the extremely rare Color Change Blue Garnets from Tanzania!  
These Tanzanian gems change from from blue in daylight to purple in incandescent light.
These are 1.5mm - 1.8mm in size.  I made myself the first stacker ring and will offer them for sale at $70 on my website.  I’m so grateful snd excited to have one and some to offer.  I will also be uploading new Chakra Gem Necklaces, one of a kind Lemurian Seed Crystal and Citrine necklaces, and a Palo Santo crystal perfume blend so stay tuned!


I hope everyone enjoyed this full moon in Scorpio!  

Love and light to everyone!


Happy Full Worm Moon in Libra March 28th, 2021 March 29, 2021 17:37

Happy Full Worm Moon!

The full worm moon peaks at 11:28am PST, March 28th, in the air sign, Libra.  According to the Farmer’s Almanac, “March’s full Moon goes by the name Worm Moon, which was originally thought to refer to the earthworms that appear as the soil warms in spring. This invites robins and other birds to feed—a true sign of spring!”
Here's what my favorite astrologists have to say about this full moon:
I chose Flamingo for this full moon because, of all the Earth’s creatures, this bird knows how to balance.  According to, Flamingo reminds us to, “Use your intuition to filter and discern what is happening in your life right now. Focus on the spiritual healing and lessons contained within.” “In this case, Flamingo symbolism is reminding you to get in touch with your emotions. It is a good idea to allow yourself to feel so that you can process your feelings. Furthermore, this spirit animal will enable you to grow  through releasing issues. In other words, if you bottle things up, you will find yourself reacting rather than acting appropriately. Therefore, the Flamingo meaning dictates that you must allow yourself to release your feelings so that you can come into balance again.” “Flamingo symbolism may be letting you know that it is time for you to get out and socialize. Therefore it is time to have some fun in your life. Moreover, socializing will help let go of stressful situations and coming to terms with changes in your life. Correspondingly, this bird also brings new ideas and options that will come to you while immersing yourself in the company of others. It will also allow you to find balance and gratitude for what you have. It will give you a greater appreciation of those around you.

Conversely, Flamingo symbolism may be pointing out that you are blending in a bit too well right now. In other words, you need to allow yourself to be different and to think for yourself. Thus, the Flamingo meaning prompts you to maintain your individuality within the crowds.”

Bronzite is known as a "stone of courtesy", allowing us to avoid judgment of others and emit a positive, friendly demeanor.  A grounding and protective stone, it repels and also sends back the negative energies to the sender.  Bronzite helps us to focus on and to find the best path to take, clearing confusions along the way.  It helps us make decisions and instills the courage to follow through with them.  Bronzite helps cultivate the courage to act on our thoughts and feelings. 

40% Off Jewelry Sale ends April 1st at midnight

We spent the entire month of March in and around Lake Havasu City, AZ.  During that time, we spent a few nights on the California side.  Here’s a view of Lake Havasu City just after sunset.  We had a dance party to Sofi Tucker shortly after this photo. 

My shipping station for packing up orders.

I have been using leftover fabric from Scott’s furry hats.  He has made and sold them at music festivals for over 13 years.  

We used our paddle boards on the lake and spent as much time on the beaches as possible. 

The water was nice and cool And the weather fluctuated between 70 - 90 degrees.  It’s truly an oasis in the desert.

I bought a new guitar!  I sold my acoustic, electrics and amp to move into the van.  I bought this Yamaha hybrid electric accoustic after playing in public for the first time in 10 years.  Our new friend, Kevin Jaxon, invited me to play a few of my songs the first night we met during his set at Burgers by the Bridge.  I played there 4 Sundays in a row thanks to him!  We got a chance to jam one night as well and he is magic on a guitar!  He has a band called Kevin Jaxon and Midnight Sun that plays rhythm and blues music every Tuesday night and Jeremy’s June Joint.  When I come back, he’s going to record some of my songs.


I played a few open mic nights at Finney’s which happens every Monday night.  Lake Havasu city has a great music scene and a lot of opportunities for artists.

Hanging out in Havasu.

The London Bridge is the center of the city.  The phone booth is also from London.  You can watch the boats, kayaks and paddle boarders traversing the canal under the bridge, which connects it to the island on the other side.

We got stuck in the gravel at a BLM site outside of LHC while visiting our friends, Stephanie and Travis and their kids, Zion and Skyanne.  They helped us dig out the gravel and build a cobblestone road.  Our other friends, Robert and Linda, pulled us out with their heavy duty truck.  We’re so grateful to have such amazing friends.  Both Stephanie and Linda have their own small businesses.  Stephanie wildcrafts potion tinctures that holistically heal on a mind, body and soul level.  She harvests everything herself and communes with the plants and her guides to create her potions.  I use her Hormonal Balance Potion and it has helped my cramps so much, it has transformed my period completely.  Her website is:

 Linda makes all natural soaps, candles and lotion bars.  I use her body butter, charcoal face soap and tobacco and cedar lotion bar.  She makes wonderful products bed is delving into the CBD realm.  Her website is:

Scott got our trailer organized so we have easier access to our jewelers’ benches.  I spent some time learning how to engrave and filling website orders and he made some new pieces with pave set stones.

I created this custom art piece for a man named Dave I met in Lake Havasu City.

Our last night in Lake Havasu City, AZ on the full moon.  We will miss this quirky, artsy desert oasis and look forward to coming back next year.  Now, we’re Tucson bound for the GEM SHOW!  We will be at the Miner’s Co-op showcase representing our new gemstone venture, Ra Stones!


I hope everyone enjoyed this full moon in Libra!  

Love and light to everyone!
