Happy Autumnal Equinox! And a Joyous Libra Season!

The Autumnal Equinox ๐Ÿ’ซ๐Ÿ‚ has arrived today and the day and night are equal length. This begins the change in seasons toward the darker days and nights of winter. It is not a coincidence that the equinox occurs on the first day of Libra season โ™Ž๏ธ, a season that invites us to seek more balance in all that we do and get cozy with the people who mean most to us.

We are also in the midst of Mercury Retrograde. Retrogrades exist to teach us lessons from the past, to illuminate our desires, and to force us to slow down with how we communicate ๐Ÿ—ฃ. In addition to this Mercury Retrograde, we are also experiencing a little bit of planetary chaos -- 6 out of the 8 astrological planets are all in retrograde currently. It's a great time to ask yourself to slow down, reflect, and see what lessons we can glean from our current perspectives on past events๐Ÿชž.


I have been going deeply inward during this retrograde and lead up to the equinox. This season is full of milestones for me, but most pointedly, it marks 5 years since I began my healing journey ๐Ÿ™. I feel so very lucky to be where I am today and I am in a place now where I feel like I can share the gifts of my healing with all of you.

5 years ago, I was in the midst of the darkest period of my life -- a life that I would say has had more than its share of struggles compared to most. It all changed when I found my first tarot deck and recognized the power of introspection and healing ๐ŸŽด. Because of that deck, I am here now, writing to you, and telling you about all the great things that are coming in your future. And I am more hopeful than ever ๐Ÿคฉ.

You might remember that 7 or 8 months ago, I sent an email that essentially put Rise on hold indefinitely. After receiving my certification in reiki, I realized that so much about my energy needed to shift before I could continue sharing my healing practices with you โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿฉน. One major part of this process was recognizing the negative role that alcohol was playing in my life. I gave up drinking completely, and since then, my psychic and energetic gifts have blossomed in ways I never could have predicted ๐Ÿ”ฎ. And my clarity for where Rise is headed is stronger than ever. I appreciate your patience while I figured this all out, and I am thrilled to share more with you about that journey.
