A short story about the shackles of time, the Gregorian calendar and returning to celestial cycles.

The Moon was bright in the sky, and as always, we gathered under her light in celebration. When I think back to that day, it’s hard to imagine how happy we were; genuinely free to live alongside the Earth, and dance under the stars. The Moon was our calendar, and it felt like the most natural thing to live by her light.

Our women bled alongside the darkness of the New Moon, planted our crops, and shared our love with the soil. We knew the power of anchoring these celestial cycles into the fabric of our everyday lives. It wasn’t…


A down-to-Earth approach for making the most of a Full Moon.

If your social media feeds are anything like mine, you might see graphics reminding us it’s a full moon and, therefore, an ideal time to release. As humans, our beliefs impact our realities, and those who choose to believe that the Moon is helping you manifest your dream car or finally let go of that ex; could very well create that experience.

I don’t believe that the Moon cares about our material gains. There is something to harnessing the power of the lunar cycle, which we can witness in the farmer’s almanac or many indigenous traditions. …


Parallels between 2021 and the invention of the printing press.

In 1440 the world changed with the invention of the printing press, which allowed humanity to share information in a new way. Throughout 2021, Uranus, Chiron and Jupiter are returning where they were in 1440. Does this suggest new means of exchanging information could revolutionize life on Earth?

As we enter these innovative times, there’s an opportunity to share information and expand our message. Now more than ever before, it’s vital to write our personal anthems and sing them to the world.

It was 2011, and I was in the final year of a business degree program. My 20-year-old self lived in Ottawa, Canada’s capital, and hoped to score a job with the government. This changed when I was assigned, Linchpin by Seth Godin in a leadership course.

Although I’ve spent thousands on textbooks, this is the only book that stuck with me. It’s wisdom impacted me more than the rest of my degree combined. The perspectives in this paperback book opened my mind, ignited my creativity, and shaped me into the person I am today.

2021 is a year for creativity


…and what does that even mean?

I have a reoccurring dream where the masses take to the streets in celebration because corruption is over, and humanity is free to thrive. In the dream, we discover how rigged the game of life is, and we change it. It ends with each person playing out their full potential, without the stacks pilled against them.

When it comes to astrology, I’m not one for buzz words or mainstream hype. My work is not about horoscopes or predictions. Instead, I see the zodiac and celestial bodies’ symbolism as the threads that create the fabric of our experiences.

As an ambitious, driven, and textbook overachiever, NaNoWriMo has been the perfect fit. It’s created the drive and pressure for me to get the words on the page. However, like many others, 2020 has changed me; it’s no surprise that Nano was different this year. I learned that taking a step back was the best thing I could do for my creativity; this surprised me, and I will carry this wisdom forwards.

Thanks 2020, I couldn’t of done it without you.

Ever felt like a ball bouncing through a pinball machine? Welcome to my life. I’ve been moving from one flashy thing to another, jumping for people’s attention and praying I’ll land in the coveted target. I didn’t realize how exhausting it all was until the world forced me to slow down.

As the calendar changes, so has my sense of self. I am learning to let the glam, hustle, and hype go. I’ve ditched the pinball machine for a slower, less stressful pace. Because a high-speed life is overrated and slowing down has its benefits.

The benefits of slowing down…


Exploring patterns between the heavens, history, and humanity.

“Perhaps there is a pattern set up in the heavens for one who desires to see it, and having seen it, to find one in himself.” — Plato

Whether we want to attribute it to unprecedented events or rare astrological alignments, the Earth is changing. It’s as if we have woken up from a slumber, and the dream that felt so life-like has disappeared from our minds.

We’re not in Kansas anymore. We are facing new realities coming at us from all directions. It feels overwhelming, exhilarating, terrifying, or thrilling.

There’s no right or wrong way to feel, but there…
