Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

What message is the New Moon in Aquarius
sending us for this new moon?


Aquarius is a sign that wants to alter our perceptions, dares us to try new things and paves the way for changes in the foundations that we laid with Capricorn.

Changes? Again? Yes, yes, yes!
The energy of Aquarius encourages us to innovate, to be original and unique, even to become your own guru. Make space for that inner voice, listen to it, trust it and move forward.

Why not order a different kind of coffee for your usual morning at Starbucks? At the Valentine’s party, why not turn around and introduce yourself to an unknown face? Why not join the Sunday morning bike ride with other bikers?

Always remember that you’re not alone on this new path. As a species, we’re in this together and by looking up to the skies above us, we can be sure that our road will be the right one.

So onwards, as we set our foot on the new path, the path, which Robert Frost writes about in :

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Bonne route, chers amis,

New Moon for the New Year


Greetings from Little Creek,

Happy New Year and a Happy New Moon to all of you, my dear readers.

Our first New Moon is in the constellation of Capricorn, an earth sign.   Earth signs are grounded, tangible, concrete, rock steady and solid.  What a blessing for us to start the year off with this kind of energy.  And if that’s not enough, we have four planets lined up in this sign to help us along.

So what should we do with all this New Moon energy?  Work with your New Year’s resolutions.  To be more precise, we should create well grounded structures for them.  How do you plan to go about finding new work opportunities?  Are you ready to budget your time more efficiently?  When will you schedule your workout routine?  What about a new health regimen?

These goals shouldn’t be “here today and gone tomorrow” but rather these are goals which you should set for yourself and steps you can take to make your New Year’s resolutions real.  Just think, this can be life changing and if you so wish, check in again in six months and we’ll see where you are on your schedule.

Capricorn is associated with the mountain goat and climbing that mountain might be a challenge, but determination and ambition will allow you to forge ahead without looking back.  Your priority is to reach the summit where you can become who you wish to be.

It’s a long and heavy list this time around and I can even feel that energy in creating my write-up.  It might seem too long and too heavy and not a lot of fun but that is the energy of the moment.  It’ll be better when we meet again next month under the New Moon.

So I wish you the best and shall bid “adieu”.

New Moon in Sagittarius


Greetings from Little Creek,

The New Moon is simply a sliver in the Heavens at the beginning of its 14-day cycle  and it becomes full and round at the end of it. It’s particularly the change of its size that we should pay attention to during this cycle in Sagittarius. Now’s the time to shift our perspectives, expand our horizons and allow our lives to become more adventurous.

Why don’t you buy some helium-filled balloons, run away with them and then let them go?   How about walking through the aisles of the library at a leisurely pace and checking out a travel book for your next trip?

The gates are open and all you have to do is walk through them.   May you be guided by the archer associated with the sign of Sagittarius and aim for the stars.

New experiences, new aims and goals are awaiting you for the rest of this year and the following one.   Expand your consciousness and as Frank Sinatra sings: Fly me to the Moon.

Good luck on your new projects
and Happy Holidays to you,

Love and Light, Barbel

New Moon in Scorpio


Greetings from Little Creek Farm Road!

The New Moon this month is in the most reclusive and complex sign of the zodiac:
Scorpio. It is related to darkness, the unknown, our dragons and all types of negative energies. Are you rather hesitant to go on reading our message?

Well, don’t be because all you have to do is turn it all around, release those old
worn energies and draw in new energy into your core. Let’s look at the positive and promising side of this sign.

So why don’t you have a little ceremony near your trash can and throw away things that you’ve been holding onto for too long. For example, release your stubbornness and  follow the advice of your colleague.  Also let go of things that weigh you down such as unpleasant habits, stale ideas, and even material possessions.

Another idea is to sit with a tree, like a beautiful oak, and connect with it and listen to it. Did you notice that its bright leaves are now going brown and are falling to the ground? Think about the transformation that the tree is undergoing and that you also can undergo. Are you ready to transform those ego-attachments and let them go? Can you purify those emotional waters that spoil many a nice evening with your beloved companion? Are you willing to process those unprocessed issues related to anger and control?

Let’s all move forward and light a candle at this moment of new beginnings. Let’s release and transform those energies that still hold us back.

Shed the old and embrace the new in your life.

Love and Light,

PS Don’t forget our monthly workshops here in the woods.
The next is on Aromatherapy at 2:00 pm Sunday, December 6.
Call or e-mail me for more information.

Shifting, Changing, Rearranging

Greetings to you all from Little Creek,


Vacation has ended and we’re ready to get back to work again.
So shuffle your feet and dance into this electrifying month.

Virgo welcomes us with both the Solar and Lunar eclipses,
as well as ever-popular Jupiter. How is that for a back-to-work signal?

So let’s be more specific.
The Solar Eclipse and the New Moon highlight the skies on the 12th and the Lunar Eclipse follows at the end of the month, on the 30th. Both eclipses call us to action and engage us to be more productive in our daily tasks. What a more suitable sign than Virgo for this to take place?

Since it is a sign of health and work, do make an effort to be more serious about your self-care. How about joining a dance group swinging and counting one, two, one-two-three, cha, cha, cha? In Virgo we have no time to go cruising around the Greek islands but rather being more productive in our daily tasks and being concerned with self-care.

On the eve of the 12th September is the moment to sit down and write yourself a letter because this Solar Eclipse has a long-term effect. Invite the Virgo energies to come forth and allow them to help you accomplish your newly-set goals. Let’s see what kind of shape you’ll be in when the next pair of eclipses come along in March 2016.

Just a short reminder that on the 12th we’ll have a 4 o’clock workshop session on the September skies at the Honeysuckle Tea House. Come join us there and remember to put your heart and soul into whatever you do.

Happy Eclipse time,

New Moon and Crab Cakes

Having difficulties lately with family and friends? 

This is a good time to take a real hard look at what’s going on.
What’s up?


 It’s the New Moon in Cancer,
sign of home and hearth and family.
That new crescent Moon is a signal to you
that the time is right to sit down and talk tonight.

In two weeks when the Moon is full in the sky you’ll feel really good about how you’ve reached out and made your family a better place.

Farewell and be at peace,
