The Emperor is the embodiment of divine masculine energy - possessing traits like stability, confidence, decisiveness, and forward momentum. He is thought of as the father of the tarot deck. In his highest vibration, he commands devotion through wisdom and integrity, sharing his knowledge for the provision and protection of others. 

The first week of August marks a turning point in the wheel of the year where we celebrate the first grain harvest of the growing season. Lughnasadh, or Lammas, is a cross-quarter holiday sitting squarely between the summer solstice and the autumn equinox. It is the first of 3 Pagan harvest festivals giving us an opportunity to CELEBRATE OUR PROGRESS and taste the first fruits of our labor.


The Empress is the great mother of the tarot deck. Overflowing with warmth, empathy, and compassion, she longs to nurture and nourish that which is in her care. She is a supportive and committed partner - giving freely and loving genuinely. She is deeply connected to the earth - eagerly engages all of her senses, taking full pleasure in whatever life brings her way.

This year’s Spring Equinox will occur on Monday, March 20th, 2023 in the Northern Hemisphere. On this day, the sun rests directly above the Equator and we experience equal parts of dark and light in our skies. From here, our days will continue to get longer and longer until we reach the Summer Solstice on June 21st.

So often I get asked why I differentiate between the words DANCE and MOVEMENT. So many people use those words interchangeably. To me, and also for the purposes of what I teach, dance and movement are vastly different concepts. This isn’t something I was taught and I can’t say I’ve ever heard anyone speak about this. But what I’ve learned over the past two decades is that those words carry contrasting energies and can serve opposite but equally important purposes. When I teach any type of spiritually-focused dance or movement practice, I start by helping people understand the differences, because everything I teach builds upon those two concepts.
