Hi Community,


This weekend we had a full moon + a lunar eclipse in Capricorn. It also happened to be the 4th of July. We knew this summer was going to be weird – right?


We're in the middle of a big sea change, and there are many things that just don't feel quite right anymore. I'm in a state of inquiry, and I'm creating space for that to happen and work its way through me by pursuing rest in a way that I haven't in a long time.


So this week, I'll be on vacation. Creating space for integration of all that has been uncovered and brought to light over the past few months. Returning to the wellness practices I love but haven't made time for. Celebrating my slow and sweet Cancer birthday.


I know many of us usually go into warp speed when the warm weather finally hits (I know I do), but it seems like quarantine is asking of us to embrace a slower summer. 


All bets are off in 2020. We all deserve a little time to think about what we want to make of the rest of the year and how we want to show up for it.


If you've got some ideas and want to verbalize them with the power of the full moon behind you, reply back with your 2nd half of 2020 intentions! I'll stand as your witness 😉
