New Moon in Leo


Greetings from Little Creek,

During these summer months we seem to be more busy than usual and have little time for ourselves.  This New Moon in Leo asks us to take time out, celebrate who we are and show our creative talents.  It’s time to renew ourselves!


Afraid of trying something new and being held back by those problems lurking in the back of your mind?  Why not bring them to the foreground and look at them with a positive attitude?  How do you solve them or modify them?  By using your CREATIVITY AND YOUR TALENTS.


For example, with much prodding from your sister, you finally dare to place your personal colorful flower arrangement  on the dining room table.  It certainly shows off your artistic flair and before long you receive many complimentary oooos and ahhhs.  One of your guests even suggests that you create the flower arrangements for Lulu’s wedding reception next Saturday.  Nothing better than that to show that creative side of yourself and with that little extra income, you could even sign up for community flower arranging class.


How about showing your manual skills by weaving a basket for Aunt Jemima? She’ll much appreciate it, ask you for more and before you know it you’ll be in business.


Put on your poet’s cap and type a haiku or sonnet.  Just keep at it like Leo and before you know it, you’ll have a book of poetry published.


These fun creations will give you the confidence and faith to carry on.  Those are the wonders of that Leo’s creative energy that encourages us with this New Moon.  Creativity is a crucial part of who you are.  Don’t ignore it – flaunt it and have fun!


Bonne lunaison,
PS What’s the best time to make your creative move?  A Solar Return chart will tell you     what you need to know.  so send an email or call and we’ll get started.

New Moon in Cancer











Greetings from Little Creek,

Every New Moon cycle brings energy for growth and so today is a potent day.
Are you ready to accept this good flow of energy or are you mired in inertia?

The New Moon this month is a rather fluid and receptive Moon placed in the sign of Cancer. Where is Cancer in your chart? In House 4 or in House 10? That area of your chart is particularly energized at this time and this is where you should be doing some searching and reflecting.

For example House 4 is all about home and hearth and so think about your relationship with long forgotten uncle Jimmy and lonely cousin Jenny. Why not bake a cake for Jenny who is in the doldrums or drive north to visit uncle Jimmy?

The most important part of these moments of reflection is that you trust your feelings. At the beginning of your life it was your parents who navigated you in this world of feelings but now it’s up to you. It’s up to you to steer the boat and move into the direction of life that your feelings indicate.

During this past month I often had the opportunity to say or write a word of encouragement to those who were in my immediate surrounding. I hesitated at first, then checked in with my feelings and finally came forth with a word of concern or consolation. A smile or “merci” was the result and the world around us felt lighter. It was a most rewarding time.

Listen to your intuition, allow your strengths to come forth and go with the flow of this New Moon.

Bonne lunaison,

New Moon in Taurus and your garden

Greetings from Little Creek,


What makes you feel secure and comfortable?
A deep connection to your partner in life?  A recent increase in cash flow?
A new morning meditation?

Those are questions we can ask ourselves at this time of the New Moon in Taurus. 
With this new lunar cycle in Taurus we especially receive an invitation to examine our values closely and to set our goals for the months to come.

So let’s focus on those values.
What qualities do we need to value most so that they be manifested in our lives?

Suppose we greatly appreciate a thriving garden. 
So we become gardeners.  But what do we need to do in order to make sure that our plants get sufficient care for the plants to thrive?  We must be fully committed toward tending the seeds, blooms, pruning, fertilizing and watering.  We must be reliable and we must show up in moments of intemperate weather, drought and flooding.  It is only then that our plants will flourish and grow in abundance.

And we need to do the same thing in our lives.  Let’s be wholly responsible and entirely engaged in taking care of our health, balancing our bank account, restructuring our grocery budget and loving those close to us. Our core values, our self-worth and comfort are in the foreground with the New Moon in Taurus.

Make this New Moon your loyal companion at this time of the month.  It’s supported by Venus, Jupiter and Pluto and what better company could guide you in your search for your true values.

Super Duper Retrograde!

Greetings from Little Creek,

Has your life slowed down for you? Have you noticed how complicated most tasks seem these days? Do parent-children crises come up more often these days?


What is going on the heavenly spheres? Well, the answer is simple. There are five planets retrograding at the same time at this very moment. This might not mean a whole lot to you but this “happening” takes place only once every ten years and it can have an effect on us lowly humans trying to mind our own business here on earth.

The effects of these planets retrograding might be considered negative but I think we should look at the positive side of this period. And so let’s look at the following retrograde planets from the sunny side of the street:

• Mercury R– rethink your projects, rewrite those scripts and revise your programs.                               Express yourself through music and painting
• Mars R– take care of your physical needs
• Jupiter R– move ahead with your projects and don’t procrastinate
• Saturn R– do away with feelings of doubts and questions about your self-worth
• Pluto R– allow that transforming energy to flow

Today, Jupiter retrograde is sitting on my natal Mercury – so prim and proper indicating to me that’s it’s time to move forward and sign off.

Don’t just take my word for it.
The Washington Post also has a lot to tell you on this special day!

Bises retro,
ps For the Jupiter-Saturn workshop on May 7, we’ll be meeting at the house on Little Creek. Let us know if you’re coming and we’ll reserve a place for you.

See you then.

A fiery Moon, a fiery sign, and fiery days.


Greetings from Little Creek,

A fiery Moon, a fiery sign, and fiery days.
That’s what we’re all living out at this time.

So you’re all fired up and motivated to do what during this New Moon time?
To be more receptive to Sally who leaves you a ton of voicemails to which you never respond? To listen more attentively to Johnny who had a bad day at school?
To soften your “yells” and turn them into little songs?

Yes, yes Mars, the warrior planet, is firing us up and stimulating us in numerous ways.
But at this New Moon time why don’t we allow him to act on our emotions? Let’s sit with Johnny and listen to him with motherly concern and invite Sally to brunch at Southern Season.

Become aware of how your fire, your willpower, your eagerness and your boldness are revved up and see how you can modulate them. Become a bit less aggressive with those volunteers and continue to work on your last project which you had started haphazardly.

So focus on your emotions and melt away that inner resistance to changing them. Allow your enthusiasm to come forth and approach “touchy subjects” with the right frame of mind.

A Happy New Moon to all,

PS Don’t forget our workshop on May 7th at 2 pm.
Jupiter and Saturn will be waiting for you ………

Be Still…









Greetings to all, especially to those Fishies at this time of the New Moon.

This New Moon in Pisces is finally in your sign and this is your time to speak up.  Never mind about being watery and diffuse, dancing and dreaming, having blurry boundaries and taking time to space out, you remind us that we have business to attend to.

This is the appropriate time to get up your spiritual antennas, sit still and listen to your inner voice.  It will speak to you in a quietly, soothing you and telling you to be present.  Allow time to pass and note how gently it will help you find mental clarity and finally guide you to fulfill your tasks.

Your “new” voice will lead you to new territory and to new experiences, so allow it to do just that and lead you to peace and happiness.

An extra note:  this is not only the New Moon but also the first part of the first pair of the Solar Eclipses of the year 2016.  It has difficult aspects from Jupiter residing in Virgo, which actually will push us to get things done- structured Virgo plans in harmony with Pisces wild dreams.  Good combo, don’t you think?

Also, planets galore in Pisces this month!  Six of them in all.  You certainly have your choice which one to bring to the foreground and work on during this New Moon period.

As Dr. Dyer concluded on his TV program last night:
      Row, row, row your boat
      Gently down the stream,
      Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily,
      Life is just a dream.

Happy New Moon, dear friends,

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,
