Waves of change

 
Things have been a little bumpy. This Mercury Retrograde (which ends on March 28th) is an intensely emotional retrospective for just about everyone I know: disruptive waves of deep emotions forcing intense reflection on how best to release the past and...

Happy Year of the Pig! 

 
On February 5th, we entered the Lunar Year of the Pig, saying goodbye to the territorial and hierarchical Dog and Rooster years of 2017 and 2018. The ladies at Astrostyle have a great summary of what to expect HERE, and at TOTEM we've alre...

Trust me, I get it. After a long day of work, cold weather, and picking up your dog's feces- all against the backdrop of fewer and fewer hours of sunlight- the last thing you want to do is pull it together to head back out and be social. For me, this is compounded by t...

What is your totem animal?

Summer in Chicago can be a manic push to engage, get outside, be extroverted and "make the most" of the warm weather while it's here. And while some Vitamin D and a break from the sunless days of winter are a welcome change, it can also be a v...

It's about f*cking time, isn't it? The dull monotony of ugliness in the news, across social media, and just in our daily lives can feel bludgeoning. It can be really draining and exhausting and- simply put- sad. In Chicago and across many parts of the country, it feels...

Today, the purifying Virgo Full Moon sheds its light on our lives, igniting a decluttering of our lifestyles- including our spiritual systems! 2018 has already brought a lot of intense energy, disruptive eclipses, and big work, so this organizing Full Moon is a welcome...
