I always find the New Moon to be such a magical time for setting intentions, listening to your intuition, and allowing yourself to cleanse + reset. Tomorrow night I'll be doing a
Full Moon Celebration + New Moon Temple
with Free People in Santa Monica. I would absolutely love to see you beauties there, especially if you're new to celebrating the beautiful changes that come with the moon!
Read on to catch my interview with Free People, where I share everything from my favorite crystal
to how the new moon affects us!
Your astrological sign:
Taurus Moon, Taurus Sun, Virgo Rising (earth mama!!!)
Your spirit animal is:
My son, Leo the Lion
You are a yogi, raw food chef, healer, health coach, mother. What can you NOT do?
We can all do anything we want. Truly. We are all standing in our own way because we think we have to do it perfectly or "right". There is no right. There is just showing up and doing.
Best piece of advice you ever got:
Learning the word "no". That saying "no" to others is actually oftentimes saying "yes" to yourself.
Worst piece of advice you ever got:
I get all sorts of unsolicited advice from other mothers. They loveeeee to share their two cents even when it isn't asked ;)
Your upcoming workshop in Santa Monica is about the new moon. How does it affect us?
As women, we are all affected by the moon and her shifts. The new moon is a time to start fresh, set new intentions for the month ahead, connect inward, and check in with our shadowy side. This is a time to journal, take long baths, meditate, rest, and cleanse. Solo time is necessary.
What should we be learning from this experience?
That it's completely normal to feel more emotional around the new moon, that it's vital to connect with other women to be truly "seen" and felt, and that we are always supported and held by our sisters, even if we don't always see it or feel it.
Your favorite crystal and why:
Citrine is so beautiful. It also manifests abundance + brings energies of generosity so that the prosperity + success is shared. Citrine is a solar plexus chakra stone used metaphysically to increase, magnify, and clarify personal power + energy.
What does free mean to you?
Free means expressing + living without restrictions – mentally or physically – so that I can feel open, vulnerable, and fully connected. Free is a state of mind, and I can get there as long as I'm focused on the moment + not future tripping or living in the past.
