It may be the season to be jolly, but there are a lot of zingers flying through the air to test our joy. With the Sun, retrograde Mercury, Venus, and Saturn all now in positive outspoken Sagittarius, impatient curiosity and frank directness can help us keep a twinkle in our eyes, but we may sparkle under duress. Under this Sagittarian lineup we can feel a compulsion to speak out and share our truth, whether our friend or senator wants to hear it or not. But truth is a complicated thing, and it can be tempting to oversimplify. Mercury retrograde easily clouds our communication (December 2-22) while a conjunction between Saturn and Mercury brings a new seriousness to our words and weight to our decisions, from the national tax package to far subtler personal choices. Because of Mercury’s retrograde cycle, that Mercury-Saturn conjunction becomes exact three times, November 28, December 6, Read More

Communication is key this week, don’t take it for granted; cherish every moment of understanding. As Mercury turns retrograde (Dec.2-22) and the Sun squares intuitive but confusing Neptune, we step out of ordinary reality and into mythic time. While this can help us create our holiday magic, we may feel like we’re walking through a foggy hall of mirrors and can’t quite see what’s going on.  At the same time, Mars opposes Uranus which increases our ingenuity, but also our pool of irritability and the likelihood of accidents. The planets offer us a few saving graces at the moment as they encourage both a deep and abiding curiosity to help us look past any misinformation until we find a deeper truth, and an opportunity to drop below tension and differences, and drop into an intuitive sense of connection underneath as Jupiter trines Neptune. As Mercury and Venus are both now in 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.

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
