Happy Full Moon!
Crab and Emerald
According to,, Crab teaches us that it's, "Time to come out of your shell and be yourself.  Stop hiding.
  "Crab symbolism is reminding you that not all paths lead directly to your personal goals. In other words, sometimes a sideways approach is necessary. Therefore, you must shift your focus to what is all around you because your inner senses are trying to guide you through an easier way. Alternatively, crab meaning can be reminding you that community is vital for growth. However,  equally important is a time of introspective seclusion. Thus you need to know when to withdraw and discern what is right for you.


Moreover, crab symbolism can also be letting you know that it is crucial to nourish your curiosity on all levels. In fact, the exploration of the world around you leads to discovering new horizons and vibrant life."

Emerald is a stone of true love and loyalty. It promotes forgiveness and understanding, friendship and faithfulness. Emeralds also strengthen intuition and clairvoyance. Emerald brings emotional, physical and spiritual balance.

April 19th Full Pink Moon in Libra 2019 April 19, 2019 13:05

Happy Full Moon in Libra!
This Full Moon's Gemstone Spirit Animal Oracle Art features Otters and Ruby.  Otters are my absolute favorite and I've been thinking about rubies for days, so they both seem appropriate for this Full Pink Moon in Libra.  Rubies come in shades of pink and red, and in some rare cases, form with triangular record keeper etchings like the one featured.  According to the Farmer's Almenac, The Native American's called this the Pink Moon because the spring pink phlox bloomed and blanketed the fields in a canopy of blooms.  This full moon highlights balance in relationships, both romantic and platonic, and many truths will come to light to be addressed.  Some relationships will be strengthened and some will be released.  Ruby is a fantastic stone for strenghtening relationships.  This full moon highlights imbalances in our lives as well, forcing us to rethink our old ways of responding and reacting, and making us look at our bad habits and beliefs in order to transform them.  Here's what my favorite intuitives and astrologers have to say about the energies of today's Full Moon.

Ruby is known as the Stone of Nobility as it promotes power and leadership as well as aids in obtaining wealth.  Not only material wealth, Ruby also helps us to identify and obtain our ultimate values in life.  Ruby is said to help stabalize finances and bring abundance.  A Root Chakra stone, Ruby inspires courage and confidence as well as self esteem.  It has an intense and vivacious energy that ignites passion and enthusiasm.  Ruby is said to bring a spark of inner light to one’s life.  It promotes prosperity and joy and encourages us to follow our bliss.  It protects against depression and unhappiness.  It also inspires romance and is said to promote integrity and devotion to ones partner.  Ruby eleviates guilt and feelings of sadness.  Ruby helps increase intuition, promotes lucid dreaming and protects from nightmares.   It helps to stay clear headed and focused.  Ruby helps in decision making by helping us to recognize all our options.  Ruby helps show us how our thoughts affect our reality.  It promotes creativity and assists in manifestation.  Ruby deepens a couple’s relationship, encouraging closeness and commitment.

A record keeper is the name for a crystal with a trigonal crystal structure, or triangles, that appear to be “etched” as growths or indentations onto the surface of the stone.  Often times, there are many triangle shapes etched within other triangle shapes, creating a lattice patterning of triangles.  

They’re said to hold the energetic imprint and ancient wisdom and knowledge of the Universe and past civilizations here on Earth. Many believe that they were programmed by past civilizations, like Atlantis and Lemuria.  They act as keys to unlock information about past lives.  They were believed to be formed during the Ice Age through air bubbles that froze over time.  Record keepers are exceptional tools to use in mediation.  Ask your record keeper questions and to show you its stored knowledge.  Record keepers provide a sense of deep peace and universal understanding.

According to,, Otter's messge is, "It's time to let go of control and surrender to the moment. Allowing the universe to move in its own way will often manifest your dreams beyond your wildest expectations."

Otter gives us, "the knowledge that you have to take care of yourself first to be of use to others. Therefore you need to go with the natural flow, and the ebbs and tides of your life. Only then you can find joy and wonder in the small things that give you pleasure as an adult, and that gave you pleasure as a child."

Although Sea Otters don't mate for life, the River Otters used in my lunar artwork this month do.  Regardless of monogomy, all Otter couples and family members hold hands while they're sleeping so that they won't drift apart.  Otters are also known to keep the same "pet rock" for their entire lifes, tucking it inside their armpit folds for safe keeping.  They pariodically play with the rock, bouncing it from paw to paw across their chest.  Although no one knows for sure why they do this, I like to think it's their way of kicking back and letting go with the flow.  Otters are known for being playful, energetic creatures.  They work hard but also make sure to take time out to play with their loved ones and favorite rock.

According to,

"The connection with living moving water gives Otter the meaning of an awareness of the subconscious, emotions and psychism. Observing Otter it becomes very apparent that these creatures see life as a true playground to be filled with family and friends. Very often Otter shows up in people’s lives when they’ve become too serious, over-think things and lose sight of their inner child. One of Otter’s mottos is: play as if no one is looking (and if possible have someone join you!).  Otter is also a creature always up for a bit of adventure, letting curiosity direct them. They don’t worry about what’s left behind but rather look forward. This is a great lesson from Otter Spirit – you can’t embrace new things if you’re always clinging to what’s behind. This doesn’t mean that you just forget about difficulties, but rather find a way to smile and get a different perspective that may very well solve the whole shebang."

August 7th Full Moon Solar Eclipse August 30, 2017 09:42

Happy Belated Full Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse
According to the Farmer's Almenac, this moon was called the 'Sturgeon Moon'.  "The fishing tribes are given credit for the naming of this Moon, since sturgeon, a large fish of the Great Lakes and other major bodies of water, were most readily caught during this month. A few tribes knew it as the Full Red Moon because, as the Moon rises, it appears reddish through any sultry haze. It was also called the Green Corn Moon or Grain Moon."
Monday's full moon was also a partial lunar eclipse and its effects were powerful.  With the Sun in fiery Leo and the Moon in watery Aquarius, this one was intense!  It had me in an incredilbly reflective state, and I had a hard time focusing my energy on anything else.  Hence, the tardiness of this blog.  Eclipses bring about sudden change, so my of us experienced some major shifts over the past few days. Eclipses have a way of ripping away things that are no longer serving us, leaving us feeling vulnerable and out of control at first.  But eclipses have a funny way of knowing what's best for us.  Perthaps as we let the dust settle, we'll find that this was JUST the change we needed.  
Here's what a few of my favorite astrologers have to report:
For this Full Moon, I decided to add some of the Unisex pieces I've recently made to my Etsy shop!  I post all one of a kinds there and you can follow the links to below to purchase them.  These Unisex necklaces are all on thick antique brass or silver chain with larger lobster clasp closures.
August 21st Total Solar Eclipse of the Sun
This eclipse's path of totality goes 45 minutes north of my hometown, Kansas City.  
The last total solar eclipse viewed from contiguous United States was on Feb. 26, 1979 whose path passed through the northwestern U.S. states and Canada. After this total solar eclipse, the next annular solar eclipse that can be seen in the continental United States will be on October 14, 2023 which will be visible from Northern California to Florida. Following this, a total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024 visible from Texas to Maine.
I consider myself so lucky to be a part of this event on the day of the Solar Eclipse!  All my New Moon listings will be available and I'm making some one of a kinds in honor of the Eclipse.  This is a sold out event but I will blog about it!
I'm coming to CHICAGO!
I'm popping up at Squasht Boutique for a Happy Hour event on Friday, August 25th!
Happy Belated Full Moon!  
Love and Light to you all and my the Eclipse season treat you well.
