Our challenge is clearly laid out, now it’s time for us to do something about. Recent astrological transits have stirred the coals for many people and clarified what is the next challenge. These planetary positions poked old arguments, brought old friends and exes to mind and inbox, made us walk back over political territory we thought had already been covered, and made clear where minefields, planted long before, still affect our daily life. Venus, now uncomfortably in Scorpio, squared litigious Mars, turned retrograde and squared Mars again. She stays retrograde for another month, so these portals from the past aren’t going away anytime soon. Whether we’re reacting to the recent revisiting of politics of the 1950s or resisting a twist of fate as a family member leaves or chapter closes, or have just recently encountered a body of work we need to tackle, we know what we’re up against.

Let’s check off that chore list this weekend as the waning Moon heads into industrious, nervy Virgo on Friday night and makes powerful, productive aspects. Batten down the gardens for winter, canvas for a candidate or dive into a self-improvement project. Our minds stay busy, our ability to process and critique our world heightens. We have so much to critique at the moment, our debate can really churn up ground. But in the more personal arena, let’s go kindly on ourselves and do our own homework rather than suggesting homework for others. Early next week the New Moon in Libra ask us to check our life for balance and look at equity and fairness of all we do. Take a good long look at the political situation. Check in on house chores, relationships, working dynamics and talk through what feels out of bounds. Labor, legal negotiations, love and romance all 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.
