The Oct 16 new moon in Libra isn't your typical 🌚 Usually they present opportune times to set intentions or initiate new projects... Not this one.
This new moon is in a T-square formation, opposing Mars while squaring Saturn & Pluto. Aaaaaand during a Mercury retrograde🤦♀️
𝗧𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗺𝗼𝗼𝗻 𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗰𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗹𝗲𝗻𝗴𝗲𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗱𝗿𝗮𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗴𝘆. (And not for one day - it sets the tone for a few weeks ahead.)
If you try to set a new goal, especially a lofty one, it‘s likely to be extra difficult to come to fruition. The squares & opposition may present limitations, frustrations, power struggles & delays... not an energy that helps projects take flight!
A new moon in Libra just wants balance & peace - but it’ll meet factors that feel they're pulling you out of balance🙃
♎️ Rather than starting a grand new venture, instead use this energy to 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙬𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪'𝙫𝙚 𝙜𝙤𝙩. Our energy is vital. We need it for navigating difficult conversations that may arise, and the things we're forced to deal with that we don't really want to be dealing with.
♎️ 𝗖𝘂𝗹𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗗𝗜𝗣𝗟𝗢𝗠𝗔𝗖𝗬 in your conversations with others - and yourself. That sensitivity with others and self will help you through. Because remember - this transit is happening to everyone!
♎️ Take the time & focus to 𝙧𝙚𝙫𝙞𝙚𝙬 the projects - personal or professional - you already have in the works. Is there something you need to let go of or find a new system for, to take them to the next level?
♎️ 𝗧𝗿𝘂𝘀𝘁: Just because it might not feel great, doesn't mean it's wrong. This one is built to help us grow. Don't dispare, do the work, watch you grow 🌿
♎️ And lastly, 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳! (I’ve said this a lot this year and will probably keep sayin’ it!) Let that be another positive aspect of this new moon.
♎️ 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲, 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗕𝗘 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲. Tend to your energy. Celebrate the small wins.
PS I'm lovin' the Astro-Street-Art in my 'hood! You know you're in the right place when... (the woo finds you 😉)

What is a Tiger Nut?
Contrary to the name, a tiger nut is tiger-free (phew!) and also nut-free (weird! But true!)
It is a root vegetable, a small tuber that tastes sweet and is packed with nutrients & fiber. 👊🏽
In one bowl, mix the following ingredients:
· 2 cups tigernut flour
· 1 cup almond flour (or you could just use 3 cups tigernut flour to make it nut free)
· 6 tbsp ground flax
· 2 tsp cinnamon
· 1/2 tsp salt
In a separate bowl, mix together:
· 2/3 mashed banana
· 1 cup blueberries
· 1 cup water
· 2/3 cup nut or seed butter of choice. I used a blend of coconut butter, almond butter & tahini - leftovers of what we had around. (You could use sunflower butter as per nut-free original recipe)
Mix the dry & wet ingredients together.
Divide into muffin tins or silicone muffin cups.
Makes approx 16 muffins.
I baked these for 32 min.
Recipe adapted from the delicious & inspiring @bakeitpaleo 👌🏽

FULL MOON IN ARIES
Tomorrow’s full moon is FULL ON, and I've got two mantras to help you through it - keep reading 🔻!
Aries is a fire sign and rules the head. It's why you might be feeling like this right now: 🤯
Or... partially why. In addition:
Mars, a fiery planet that's retrograde in Aries right now, is squaring Saturn - MEANING: You want to go forward but you're being forced to slow down. It's like trying to hit the gas pedal with the brakes on. 🤦♀️
Inside the body, this stop and go energy inside inside us, from a Chinese medicine standpoint, stagnates the Liver qi - MEANING: it creates pent up frustration & heat which does all sorts of un-fun things to the body: headaches, muscle tension, sore necks, etc.
The energy has to go somewhere, and if it can't go where you want it to go today due to circumstances beyond your control, instead: do some cardio exercise, shout in your pillow, punch the air, cry, or dance like nobody's watching (even if they are) 💃🏼
And now... your MANTRAS:
1) “I check my ego at the gate."
2) “Patience...(aaaaand more patience)."
You may not love these mantras 🤣[I made no promises that this would feel good 😉]
If you're a human, you have an ego. It's not a bad thing. But an ego that's too big or two small isn't in highest service of yourself nor others. Having an honest and balanced relationship with the ego is what we’re especially called to do right now.
And transits aren't all 'bad'. Positive aspects of this one include:
It can spark ACTION. The urge to DO something - to work though some of the themes that have been plaguing you this last month.
And if you're someone who has a hard time speaking up for yourself (ie ego too small) then you might get that surge of energy to speak up or assert your boundaries.
Personally, I always feel so much better during full moons than new moons. With the moon the ruler of my cart, a full moon seems to give me a burst of creative energy that I love.
In the spirit of ego, here's a selfie at the end of an epic week last week where I was feelin' surprisingly perky 🙃 👍🏾
Hang in there this week. We'll get through this.
As a Chinese Medicine Practitioner, I am often asked about 𝗦𝗘𝗫.
People want to know if Chinese medicine can do anything for sex drive.
Yes... but it's complicated.
First of all, it’s normal to have a sex drive and it’s normal not to have a sex drive. 𝙄𝙩’𝙨 𝙣𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙡 & 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙝𝙮 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙨𝙚𝙭, 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙣𝙤𝙧𝙢𝙖𝙡 & 𝙝𝙚𝙖𝙡𝙩𝙝𝙮 𝙣𝙤𝙩 𝙩𝙤 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩 𝙨𝙚𝙭.
Put another way: 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗯𝗿𝗼𝗸𝗲𝗻 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗱𝗼𝗻'𝘁 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝗲𝘅. 𝗡𝗼𝗿 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗮𝗻𝘆𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗼 𝗯𝗲 𝗮𝘀𝗵𝗮𝗺𝗲𝗱 𝗼𝗳 𝗶𝗳 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘄𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘀𝗲𝘅 𝗺𝗼𝗿𝗲 𝗼𝗳𝘁𝗲𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝘀 𝗱𝗼.
There are many factors that, to use terms in Emily Nagoski’s book, either activate your 'Sexual Excitation System' or your 'Sexual Inhibition System' when it comes to your sexual response.
For the Chinese Medicine Curious, here’s what I’ll share...
Sex involves multiple different organ systems in TCM:
The Liver. The meridian encircles the genitals. And when you’re super stressed, the Liver qi stagnates. For some this puts on the brakes, whereas others enjoy using sex as a way to get their Liver qi flowing.
The Kidney system. It governs our reproductive organs. If we are experiencing adrenal burnout or a deficiency in yang qi, we may find it harder to get aroused.
The Heart. The Heart is related to anxiety, so whether it’s anxiety in general or performance anxiety specifically, if this system is out of balance then essentially the communication between your Heart & genitals gets short circuited.
And yep, we’re humans who sometimes have #allofthethings going on at once!
So yes we can use TCM (that's acu +/or herbs) in some ways to increase drive & sensation during orgasm. We can also enhance sperm & egg quality, and assist those experiencing vaginal dryness for menopausal or other reasons.
But first and foremost, it’s time to normalize your baseline when it comes to who you are and what you’re into or not into*. (*ALL abuse situations aside. No abuse should be ’normalized’. Ever.)
Love and acceptance of self is always the #1 place to start.

𝗜𝘁'𝘀 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗹𝗲𝘁 𝗴𝗼.
This is the wisdom of the 𝗙𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗘𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗻𝗼𝘅 - which arrives tomorrow.
Letting go can be hard. Or beautiful.
Letting go can be about moving towards 𝘳𝘦𝘧𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 - a benefic quality of the 𝘔𝘦𝘵𝘢𝘭 𝘦𝘭𝘦𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵 and the Fall season, according to Chinese medicine.
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙡𝙚𝙩 𝙜𝙤 𝙤𝙛 𝙩𝙝𝙞𝙨 𝙀𝙦𝙪𝙞𝙣𝙤𝙭?
It could be material things, Marie Kondo style.
...with the astro transits* over this Equinox, what may become apparent are 𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵𝘢𝘭-𝘦𝘮𝘰𝘵𝘪𝘰𝘯𝘢𝘭 𝘱𝘢𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘤𝘭𝘶𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘰𝘶𝘳 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦𝘴. Not just fear, anxiety or melancholy - but rumination therein. Incessant mental chatter. Like spam in our mental 'inbox'!
Not only does this mental clutter prevent us from feeling our best, but in Chinese medicine this rumination, or over-worrying, can damage the Spleen qi and create digestive issues such as bloating and lethargy.
On an external level, our negative self-talk or incessant worries will ultimately impact our behaviour. And with the placement of the planet Mars this month as well, we must be extra mindful in our words & actions.
So: My Equinox challenge to you (I will do it too, of course!) this week:
🍁Witness your mental emotional state with gentleness, self-compassion, and grace.
🍁If similar thoughts, fears, anxieties repeat themselves, write them down. Thank them. And let them go.
🍁If you want to get a little extra woo, write them on a fallen leaf. If there are more than one, collect several leaves and write on each. Then return them to the earth.
Intentions need to be backed up by actions; that's integration ✅ 👍🏽
Another way to integrate is acupuncture. See your acupuncturist (I happen to know one 😉) and say your intentions aloud, and allow the session to work with you. There are some badass acupoints for helping to set these intentions in motion, embodying your journey.
Feel free to DM me at the end of the week, with thoughts or pictures, to let me know how this went for you! I've got your back.

Third Eye Acupuncture Point ("Yin Tang") 👁
My choice of acupuncture point for the new moon in Virgo 👌🏽
Virgo is all about MIND/BODY connection, and the autonomic nervous system.
The word that comes up for me with a new moon in Virgo is “𝘈𝘭𝘪𝘨𝘯𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵”.
What is aligned with our authentic self, and what isn’t? Virgo gets picky, sorting through details and reorganizing us - for good reason. We are prepping for fall, for letting go of excess in order to feel balanced during Libra season.
I’ve definitely been feeling this Virgo season, where “getting my ducks in a row” has been the primary theme! Decluttering at home, organizing some behind the scenes biz, taking charge of my health, and planning some fall studies… ! 🦆 🦆 🦆 !
BUT without 𝙜𝙧𝙤𝙪𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙙 insight, the Virgo energy can have us caught in a head-spin. If we’re unable to connect our mind, body, emotions, spirit, we can get lost in the details - and end up frazzled 2 weeks in. If uncentered, this can wreak havoc on our psyche... and ultimately our body.
So take stock this new moon: am I organizing my life in a manner - and a pace - that’s aligned with who I am?
If you can get clarity on this, you can really harness this new moon in Virgo. Why? Because 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗺𝗼𝗼𝗻 𝘁𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀 𝗦𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗻, which can set the stage for sustainability through the actions we make today. 🙌🏽 💯
With the new moon trining Saturn, it’s a good day to set systems in place that help us build our future. But our intentions need to be clear, and aligned.
Acupuncture always helps me with insight and alignment, and I love working on this level with my patients.

It’s early in the week, but 𝘐’𝘮 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘧𝘰𝘳 𝘪𝘵: I’m getting philosophical 🤯!
(I promise the philosophical will turn physical, so stay with me...👇🏽)
I was inspired recently watching a lecture by Edward Neal, an MD & 𝙉𝙚𝙞𝙟𝙞𝙣𝙜 (𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘳𝘰𝘰𝘵𝘴 𝘰𝘧 𝘊𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘮𝘦𝘥𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘯𝘦) Practitioner.
He uses the 𝘕𝘦𝘪𝘫𝘪𝘯𝘨 to explain that 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 - 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘂𝗻𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘀𝗲, 𝗶𝗻 𝗻𝗮𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲, 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆.
In our lives, we tend to focus most on the manifestations themselves: Some we enjoy because they are 𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 (i.e. shelter, love). Some cause us suffering because they are 𝘪𝘯𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘮𝘰𝘯𝘪𝘰𝘶𝘴 (i.e: headaches, tumors).
It is my job as a practitioner to witness the physical manifestation, and then to zoom out. 𝗧𝗼 𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗸 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗼𝘂𝗴𝗵 𝗼𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗵𝘆𝘀𝗶𝗰𝗮𝗹 𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗶𝗳𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻, 𝗶𝗻 𝗼𝗿𝗱𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗮𝗱𝗱𝗿𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗮𝘁𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗶𝗻 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝘄𝗲𝗻𝘁 𝗮𝘄𝗿𝘆 and allowed a state of imbalance or disease to occur.
𝗔𝗰𝘂𝗽𝘂𝗻𝗰𝘁𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗮𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻: 𝗼𝗳 𝗾𝗶, 𝗯𝗹𝗼𝗼𝗱, 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗯𝗼𝗱𝘆 𝗳𝗹𝘂𝗶𝗱𝘀.
𝗛𝗮𝗿𝗺𝗼𝗻𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 𝗺𝗼𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗯𝗿𝗶𝗻𝗴𝘀 𝘃𝗶𝘁𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗿𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴.
𝘈𝘳𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘷𝘪𝘯𝘨? 𝘖𝘳 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘰𝘧𝘧 𝘤𝘰𝘶𝘳𝘴𝘦?
Consider acupuncture to help steer you into harmony & health. If you have questions about acupuncture, let me know - I’m here to help 😊
It’s here: the epic 2020 𝙈𝙖𝙧𝙨 𝙧𝙚𝙩𝙧𝙤𝙜𝙧𝙖𝙙𝙚.
The planet of passion is treading backwards in some intense planetary terrain (squaring Saturn + a bunch of other tricky aspects).
Here’s what it means for YOU:
Notice: where have you been feeling a 𝙥𝙪𝙨𝙝 in your life these days? In what realm of your life have you identified 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙜𝙚𝙨, 𝙙𝙧𝙞𝙫𝙚, potentially 𝙘𝙤𝙣𝙛𝙡𝙞𝙘𝙩, and/or a 𝙨𝙪𝙧𝙜𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙚𝙣𝙚𝙧𝙜𝙮 𝙩𝙤𝙬𝙖𝙧𝙙𝙨? This is likely where Mars is transiting in your chart, and this theme will continue - increasing in focus - over the next 2+ months.
Note: 𝗬𝗼𝘂 𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝗻𝗼𝘁 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝘁𝗼 𝗳𝗶𝗴𝘂𝗿𝗲 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗶𝗻 𝗮 𝘄𝗲𝗲𝗸.
Please: Don’t rush. (𝘠𝘰𝘶’𝘳𝘦 𝘨𝘰𝘯𝘯𝘢 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘳𝘶𝘴𝘩𝘦𝘥)
Remember: Don’t panic (𝘺𝘢 𝘮𝘪𝘨𝘩𝘵 𝘱𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘤 𝘢 𝘭𝘪’𝘭 𝘣𝘪𝘵)
Instead: 𝗜𝗱𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗳𝘆 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗮𝗿𝗲𝗮 𝘁𝗵𝗮𝘁 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱𝘀 𝗴𝗿𝗼𝘄𝘁𝗵 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻 𝘆𝗼𝘂. (𝘎𝘶𝘭𝘱! 𝘐 𝘬𝘯𝘰𝘸. 𝘒𝘦𝘦𝘱 𝘨𝘰𝘪𝘯𝘨!) Shine the light there, and use Saturn’s disciplined energy & wisdom to set systems in place to help you learn and grow successfully in this area. It can also be an issue in the world or society that may be calling you to action. The same applies here.
The harsh truth: This is supposed to take time, despite feeling impatient with it all and perhaps facing obstacles as you go along.
The way through: For the impatient energy, do some physical movement (not reckless but physical) to help release that. This will help you can stay focused on doing the work - sustainably.
The plus side: Though it may feel intense, it’s also exciting. You are getting the growth you need, working towards your Warrior Certification in this area of life. 💪🏽
Lastly: Take some deep breaths. Slow down, remember the long-game approach to sustain the drive to the finish line. Trust the process. Warriors can be gentle on themselves and others. True strength is cultivated by nurturing within.
DM me your birth info if you want to know what area of your chart Mars is transiting. :)
