Patreon support for my forecasts

It's a new year and like many during the Capricorn season, I am inaugurating new structures for my life and my business. I am asking for support from my readers through Patreon to continue writing about following the Moon's wisdom through each lunar cycle. You can find my page and sign up to receive my forecasts at:

My intention.

If we surrendered to the Earth’s intelligencewe’d rise up rooted like trees. – Rainer Maria Rilke

It starts with a seed. An intention. A desire. It starts with opening. It starts with naming. 
Magic is linked with the Earth’s intelligence. I believe the direction that magic wants to take us is toward rooted relationship. And that relationship is everything. 

We are in relationship with the seeds, the water that softens and nourishes the seed, the soil that houses the seed, and the sky that welcomes it as it reaches for the Sun. We are in relationship with each other and with all the parts of ourselves. This relationship is everything.

The Earth has intelligence, telling us how to be the seed. How to go from seed to seedling to blossom to seed again. I believe that if we somehow oriented our lives to this intelligence, we’d be worthy inhabitants of this Earth. We’d be in good relationship. This astrology column is about that.
I follow the Moon through the rhythms of waxing and waning, through signs, and through seasons. In the 1930s, astrologer Dane Rudhyar, gave the world the scaffolding upon which to build rooted relationship with the sky and Earth—the eight phases of the Moon. These eight phases describe the primal cycle of birth, life, death, and rebirth. This cycle is the plant’s cycle, which is the pattern that magic takes to manifest change and rooted relationship. The Moon has been teaching these things since the dawn of time. I am committed to listening to the Moon. I’ve written a daily forecast about the integration of astrology, the Moon, and following mindful intention since 2012. I’ve built my personal spiritual practice around following the Moon. I want to share it with you. I am asking if my readers and fellow journeyers will support my writing with a small monthly pledge. 

Your support means a lot.

I’ve offered my writing freely for these past seven years. Now, I need financial and energetic support to help me to continue and deepen this work. Through your monthly contribution, you will be allowing me to focus more fully on this practice of following the Moon. My hope is that through sharing my practice more of us may rise up rooted like trees. 
There are three levels of support and three ways to access the Moon’s guidance each lunar cycle. At the first level, you will receive astrology-based information about the new and full Moons to guide you in setting magical intention for each lunar cycle. At the second level, in addition to the new and full Moon writing, you will receive a daily forecast published once a week that includes a reflection on each Moon phase as it pertains to your lunar intention. At the third level, you will receive all this plus my writing about additional astrological topics. I have a book in mind about the intersection of Earth-based spirituality and astrology. Your support will help me manifest this book. 

Thank you for supporting me!
