Ready for change? The stars call for revolution. They create a high point of tension which can precipitate a change, and sparks planted this week will tend to catch fire, though they may smolder for a while first. Then the mood shift gears, takes the heat off, add stubbornness and loans endurance to shepherd those changes forward. It will help if we know what we’d like to change, and how we’d like to change it. Also, while the energy is this Sparky, enjoy it, but be cautious around explosive people and substance; think safe and powerful. Some people will just want the situation different, they take this existential discomfort and project it on any pre-existing condition. But we can throw out a lot of wisdom in that process. There are plenty of problems in the world that really do need change, plenty of situations in our groups and organizations that Read More

Act as if there is a pool of high-octane astrological fuel sitting around in the open for the next two weeks.  If we casually toss a spark, it could blow up. If it sits around unused, we waste its potential or let it pollute the environment. But if we can figure out how to contain and harness it for good, we have healthy fuel to drive our engines and actually get somewhere. Some challenge, frustration, concern, paranoia, or possibly even outrage at a bona- fide misuse of power can put demands on us as this weekend begins. Dangerous situations may become more dangerous, but so can our anxiety that situation is dangerous when it’s not. It will be tricky to parse those two apart. So let’s keep our eyes open, our senses aware, and stay as calm and interested as possible. Good changes may be afoot, but just bring up Read More

Heather Roan Robbins believes how we respond to the moon's powerful influence is key to how we lead our life.

The Moon circles the Earth and zodiac in approximately 28 days and changing signs every 2½ days. The Moon sets the tone of the day. When we know today’s Moon sign, we know what to expect of the public mood and how to easily handle people. When we know the Moon we were born under, we have a new understanding of ourselves, what drives us, and what makes us feel at home.

"Her book, Moon Wisdom is AMAZING. It is a very rare day indeed, that I have read my moon sign in any other astrology book and agreed with Every. Single. Sentence. Congratulations on a gorgeous and wonderful piece of work!" T.Chapin, MN

"Beautifully illustrated and well written, both novice and advanced resource." D.B. RI.

"It is a gorgeous and insightful book." K.L. MN

Use the wisdom of the moon to make your life easier and to explore how you are connected with the breath of the world and the cycles of the stars.

How we respond to the Moon’s powerful influence is key to how we live our lives. The Moon sets the tone of the day and when we can register the Moon’s sign, we know what to expect and how to operate at our maximum level. Understanding these signs and cycles allows us to gain a greater understanding of ourselves and those around us; it gives a beneficial tool that can be used to grant ourselves deeper knowledge of a friend, partner, or boss, and how to get along smoothly with them. Be Your Own Moon Astrologer explores the meaning and usefulness of the Moon each calendar day, how to make the most of our time, the Moon’s relationship with other planets in our solar system, and how to use those important aspect-relationships to fine tune our planning. When all of these elements work together, we can take charge of our lives in a positive, healthy, and proactive way.

Heather Roan Robbins brings you an accessible and practical system of palmistry that is easy to integrate into your daily life and deepens your understanding of yourself and the people you meet.

Distilled from decades of experience, palmist and astrologer Heather Roan Robbins has developed a uniquely grounded but soul-centered approach to palmistry. She teaches you how to explore the landscape of the hand and come to know the hills and valleys of the hand's contours, recognize the deep rivers of the major lines, and listen to the bend of the fingers. When you understand the shape and form of a person's hand, you can understand their disposition. Get a glimpse of their lines and get a clue as to how they communicate. Understanding the hand's topography will help you accept and deal with yourself, clients, family, and co-workers alike. For those who want to become a professional palmist, Everyday Palmistry lays a good foundation in an accessible and memorable format. And for those of us who just want to know more about ourselves, this approach to palmistry offers a visual portrait of the patterns of our soul and can give us clues to how to bring ourselves and our lives into a better balance. Because the landscape of the hand changes over time, it reflects shifts in our life habits and the consequences of our major decisions. The hand is your energy conduit to the world. So let's paint a beautiful future with the power of our choices now.

FROM BIRTH ONWARDS

A soothing bedtime storybook to help children get to sleep.

Little Talulla Bear needs help to get to sleep. In this dreamy bedtime tale, she's encouraged to snuggle down and imagine other sleepy animals, including the cozy cat and snoozing dog. Listening to the calming words of the story, and feeling safe beneath the tranquil night sky and twinkling stars, she soon becomes very, very sleepy.... The poetic and meditative language in this beautiful storybook, combined with Sarah Perkins' stunning and soothing illustrations, will gradually calm a restless child at bedtime.

This book was originally written for Heather Roan Robbins' granddaughter, Talulla, who had trouble falling asleep. Just as she did with Talulla, here Heather takes children on a meditative journey to find that deep place of restful peace, a place where all can be right with the world.

"When my kids were younger, I’d read the classic 'Goodnight, Moon,' to them, in hopes that realizing everyone and everything is going to sleep would help them realize that they, could/should/would go to sleep, too. Now, they’re a little too old for that book, but the perfect age for this book.

It takes a similar yet more direct approach, talking about how different living things sleep, and helping you and your child breathe and picture relaxing and sleeping things. The artwork within combines watercolors and photos in a breathtakingly beautiful (and restful) way. Its a beautiful book with a beautiful approach to helping children — and adults! — learn *how* to go to (a restful) sleep. Well done!" Amazon Reviewer

"A sweet sweet share - my grandkids love to read it, converse about the pictures and drift into dreamland with this book." Amazon Reviewer

A beautiful storybook, for ages 3–7, that helps children—and parents—to become more mindful, attentive, and relaxed.

Little Talulla Bear is used to the safety of her own surroundings. When her mother invites her to go on an adventure, exploring new environments, she is worried—the big wide world seems very scary. Her mother reassures her, "I’m here with you. Together we will find beautiful things and learn how to walk in new places.” Talulla’s mother gently guides her to explore the world with fresh eyes, encouraging her to use her senses to fully embrace a wonderful array of sights, smells, and sounds. She learns to be curious but wise, especially when she comes face to face with a happy busy bee! On this journey of exploration, as she takes in her surroundings, she tastes succulent berries, plays in the sea, rolls in the mud, climbs a tree, and even overcomes her shyness to befriend a bear called Ronin. Talulla ends her exploration tired, happy, and ready to do it all again tomorrow. This is a beautiful storybook in its own right, but Heather Roan Robbins’ poetic and meditative language, combined with Sarah Perkins’ stunning and soothing illustrations, will transport children and parents alike to a more peaceful place. As they walk with Talulla bear, they will become more mindful of their senses, their surroundings, and every precious moment in time.
