Foodstyles:  Hungarian Mushroom Soup with Fresh Dill

This Hungarian Mushroom Soup with Fresh Dill is creamy, with hints of smokiness and a great umami flavor. It’s the perfect bowl of soup to warm up with this winter! This past month in Portland has felt a bit like my days of living in snowy, frigid New York. The snow and ice here is out of the ordinary and I’m thanking my lucky stars that I purchased these boots in November – A birthday gift to myself. I really didn’t think I’d get much use out of them, except for when we went up to the mountains, but I’ve  […]

Saturn in Capricorn: Explained

The Ghetto Allegory


Saturn is back at home in Capricorn. Be cool. Dadʻs home…and you are either getting ice cream or grounded.

Well now, it has been some time since I last wrote this blog, and really, I have no clue what I am doing now, writing it this time and at this time because I have a lot of stuff to do.

And that is the thing – I have not been able to write my blogs as I usually do because for the last…I donʻt know…letʻs say the last year or five, I have, without my own knowing I have been proverbially AND literally cleaning house because yeah….our celestial dad, Saturn, is home in Capricorn. (Mine is a 6th house Capricorn…meaning that I am actually answering the energies of my Sixth house…HOUSE….not personal planets…read on).

There are a lot of ways to look at it all, ruminate it all, think, say…

Sabbe sattā, sabbe pāṇā,

You can have a difficult time staying away from the ex, or sticking to a routine, or this can be fighting with your self. You can be learning new things, teaching new things, or you can be more in a leadership role in general.

I wouldn’t open your messenger or dm on the social media pages, the weirdos, chain letters etc, are out today, if you can avoid having an opinion on the social media for safe measure. You need to be more of a listener today and less responding , not everything needs a response

January: Wolf Moon

Sabbats and Sabbaths


“Wolf is the pathfinder, the forerunner of new ideas who returns to the clan to teach and share medicine. Wolf takes one mate for life and is loyal like a Dog. If you were to keep company with Wolves, you would find an enormous sense of family within the pack, as well as a strong individualistic urge.”—Medicine Cards, Jamie Sams & David Carson

January 1st is the full moon that is known as the Wolf Moon. It’s one of my favorites. Using the information from the Native American Medicine Cards as our guide, there are several questions we can meditate on during this full moon:

At the beginning of this new year, what is the undiscovered territory we are exploring? What boundaries are we crossing? What new knowledge are we assimilating?

If we feel more like a gerbil on a wheel instead of a pathfinding wolf, what can we…
