NEW MOON IN CAPRICORN- Adaptogens for Balance and Hair Health

Welcome to the New Moon in Capricorn!

This is the 1st New Moon of the fresh new year. What a beautiful way to start a new!

Capricorn is asking us to ground the energy from the expansiveness of Sagittarius, wrapping up a year and letting go of the past, moving into the deep rooting energy of Capricorn. Capricorn is an earth sign representing stability and -BALANCE-

With the start of the year, this new energy is encouraging us to root our intentions and desires into reality. Have you created your list of goals for the year? Have you let go of all that was necessary in order to create the space for newness? If not, this window in time is allowing you the space to do so.

Scorpio was about letting go, Sagittarius was about envisioning, manifesting and aiming our intentions, Capricorn is the time for conscious, responsible action to root those intentions for the year ahead. With the earthly grounding energy, along with Capricorns ambition and motivation, there's nothing that we cannot accomplish this month!

With Capricorns discipline in creating new routines and habits, we have the ability this month to lay the groundwork all this year is offering..

In the yogic sciences, there is a saying-“Your habits define you.”

Through my practice in Kundalini Meditation, there is a quote I always connect to about habits-

“Remember, a habit is a subconscious chain reaction between the mind, the glandular system and the nervous system. We develop habits at a very young age. Some of them serve our highest destiny. Some of them do not. By doing a special sadhana, you can rewire that chain reaction. You can develop new, deeply ingrained habits that serve your highest good.” In Kundalini a sadhana is a new practice over an extended period of time. This month, we have the opportunity to create our very own “sadhana” or practice, that can bring BALANCE and stability into our lives.

Transformation comes from practice- it is not about instant gratification- it is about the lasting effects.


This month we will focus on a Ritual for rooting our intentions into the Earth through the use of Adaptogens!Adaptogens are the greatest ally for BALANCE. They are also great stress managers. For those of us who suffer hair loss during heightened stressful times due to thyroid imbalance, heightened cortisol and overrun adrenals, Adaptogens are here to save the day! Adaptogens, like hair rituals, are best when used consistently for the absolute best results and quickest benefits.

Some of my favorite adaptogens for hair health are:

Ashwagandha: A super tonic for the hair. It helps your body adapt and deal with stress, balances hormones and helps reduce cortisol levels which all help encourage healthy hair growth. It also balances out the thyroid, which can help the health of hair. When used in natural hair products, like hair oils or and shampoos, it increases scalp circulation, helps with dandruff and greasy hair, which all leads to healthy hair growth. Ashwagandha also stimulates the production of melanin in the hair, which is the pigment of our hairs natural color.

Rhodiola: This tonic helps to reduce various stress induced chemicals in the body and helps with fatigue. In cases of stress-induced hair loss, Rhodiola can help balance what is happening internally, to prevent continual hair shedding.

He Shou Wu: This Chinese plant medicine is known as the herb of intuition and longevity and also the “rejuvenation tonic”. It is high in zinc, which has beneficial effects for hair growth. It helps balance out the endocrine system, which helps hormone function in the body, for those who experience hair loss due to hormonal imbalances.  

Mucuna Pruriens: An Ayurvedic legume that has the ability to reverse gray hair by improved dopamine levels. It is also an immunity booster, reducing stress in the body. Those who suffer hair loss due to autoimmune disorders can take this magical herb to prevent hair loss.

I add He Shou Wu and Mucuna Pruriens the the La Tierra Sagrada Dry Shampoo due to its powerful hair healing abilities. I believe, as all natural products should be, whatever we ingest internally, we should be able to use topically as well. And vice versa. By putting the tonics in the product, the herbs are being applied directly to the scalp- which is technically the skin- the largest organ of the human body- which can absorb the potency just as well! If you take this herb internally as well as using it topically, on a consistent basis, you will most definitely reap the benefits.

So this month, I wanted to share a DIY adaptogen hair mask with you all.

It can be any of the above adaptogens, or a combination of 2 or all if you have!

Adaptogen Hair Mask

1. Take equal quantities of each herb. I use a tablespoon of each.

2. Add oil of your choice, warm water or warm milk (true ayurveda style)

3. Mix together well to make into a paste.

4. Massage the paste gently into the into the scalp.

5. Leave on for 30 minutes, then rinse thoroughly, shampoo the scalp and hair and condition the mid shaft and ends of the hair.

Happy Hair Healing!

NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS- Grounding Hair Rinse for the Holiday Season

Welcome to the New Moon in Sagittarius!

Ruled by Jupiter, Sagittarius comes with all of the joy and expansiveness this large planet has to offer!!This new moon is a time to congratulate yourself for all of the hard work you just went through in Scorpio. We did all the work in Scorpio to let go of pain and trauma from the past and rise from the ashes, moving forward into the Sagittarius expansiveness to envision something more potent, powerful and enlightening. Now is the time to turn your focus from those deep emotional waters, to the lightness and JOY of Sagittarius. This energy is tapping into our inner truth and knowledge. It is awakening our intuition while expanding our consciousness. This moon invites us to reflect with all that we have experienced in 2018. Moving towards the solstice, this is a wonderful time to reflect on the year and what it is we might be wanting to call in for 2019.

This month we will be moving from internal to external in a more uplifting way. This window in time allows us to transform our day to day mundane lives into the expansive, limitless beings we truly are!

Planting seeds of intention with Sagittarius's powerful lunation will help us attain our limitless capacities. Aim big! Sag is a fire sign represented by an archer. He reminds us to focus deeply on where we want to direct our arrow of intention. This moon marks the point of the tip of the arrow. Where do you want to aim for the year ahead?

With the holiday season ahead of us, we have the ability to be distracted by all of the holiday parties, gatherings, and uplifting energy of Sagittarius. Most of us will be surrounded by friends, family and loved ones up until the New Moon in Capricorn. So, I thought I'd share one of my favorite hair rituals as a way to bring a wave of grounding over each of us during this very open time!


Working with herbs is the easiest direct connection we have to nature. Especially for those of us living in cities.

Whether we use them in a form of medicine, tea or hair rinse, herbs are the quickest way to connect and ground our energy during this busy season.

I always recommend that you choose herbs that you feel called to work with.

I use Lavender and Rosemary in all of my hair rinses as well as almost all La Tierra Sagrada products due to their ability to sooth and balance the scalp and add shine to the hair.

There are many other powerful herbs that can strengthen the hair, increase hair growth and condition the hair.

I will be using the New Moon Hair Rinse created by Whitney of Canyon and the Moon.

Her blend is:

Blessed Thistle: Which promotes Scalp Health

Horsetail: Mineral rich herb that strengthens weak, brittle, damaged hair, giving it vitality and shine. It improves elasticity of the hair and is a useful remedy for dandruff, eczema and psoriasis. This herb promotes circulation which nourishes and strengthens hair follicles, aiding in hair growth.

Lavandin Flower: Adds shine, stimulates hair follicles, nourishes and soothes scalp irritations and moisturizes hair.

Oatstraw: Is an herbal source of silica and magnesium which promotes scalp health and stimulates hair growth.

Calendula: Is rich in minerals and antioxidants. Calendula promoted strength and healthy hair from increasing collagen production and circulation in the scalp.

Nettles: Stimulates the hair follicle and improves blood circulation in the scalp. When used topically on the hair, it coats a layer onto the hair, adding protection and preventing breakage.

Burdock: Burdock root stimulates hair growth by improving blood circulation in the scalp. It can help maintain a healthy scalp by treating dandruff, dry scalp, irritation and other scalp disorders.

And her steps are..

Set your intentions- For this particular moon, focus deeply on what it is you want to call in. What ways can you allow yourself to expand? Where do you want to aim your arrow of intent? Now is the time to call in your manifestations for this lunation.

Brew the Tea for your hair- Boil and allow to to come to room temp. I add a palm full of herbs to a pot, and fill with filtered water. I bring to boil and allow the herbs to sit for a 20 minutes. (Overnight if you want more potency).

Whitney recommends using a reusable tea pouch and then pouring the water into a heat safe container. Steep for 10 minutes or leave longer for a stronger brew. Either way you choose to do this ritual, allow the water to cool to a safe warm temperature. (This tea can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week).

Let your hair soak in the love- For ultimate grounding, taking a bath is my preference, so you can soak in the herbs after pouring the rinse. No need to wash out of the hair after, as the herbs are the rinse to seal in the hair.

Take a moment of gratitude- Allow yourself to feel the grounding of this sweet ritual and take a deep breath.

Once you are complete with your bath. Collect the herbs and make an offering to the Earth.

With this offering, envision planting seeds of optimism for the month ahead!

Additional Herbs for rinses




**If you decide to make your own blend, and decide to do bulk, add ingredients to a quart size jar with lid.

Shake it up well, and using about a handful of herbs each time for regular rinses.

This is also a wonderful DIY gift to share with your loved ones this holiday season!



Happy New Moon in Scorpio! This new energy is ruled by Pluto- the ultimate ruler of transformation.

Though this particular moon phase can be a more challenging moon phase, I find the challenge rewarding because it is a time where we can dive into the shadow and really start doing the work that we need in order to grow and transform-Hair wise as well as internally! Remember, challenges are only present for us to learn from and gain wisdom in doing so.

We have a powerful opportunity to do some deep healing work during this intense lunation.

This months ritual is focused directly on the INTENSITY of the moon energy and we are also going to focus on those challenging aspects that we sometimes try to hide. This Scorpio energy is asking us to embrace our Shadow side-We all have both dark and light within us, but ego tries to protect itself by hiding the shadow.

This is very similar to the work that we did back in the New Moon in Cancer, but we are going to dive a little bit deeper into this work with Scorpio! Scorpio is a water sign and encourages us to face the emotional realms within. Remembering that this particular energy is here to guide us in letting go in order to heal the past, rebirth and begin a new!

Envision the Phoenix rising from the ashes- this is the energy we have to work with in this new moon phase.


This can be as deep as you want to go-Trauma can stem from many different places. It can be trauma due to health issues, break ups or heartache, or trauma directly related to our hair. As a hairstylist, whenever I am facilitating workshops or doing one on one clients, trauma often reveals itself around the hair and the crown. It can surface from childhood memories in the form of other kids making fun, or parents getting attached to hair, which creates a fear of cutting - programmed as children that our hair is supposed to be a certain way. Trauma can surface around caring for hair as well. Maybe brushing hurt them as children, maybe they experienced something where it didn't feel good. I've been exposed to many different variations of trauma around the hair. It doesn't even have to do with your hair.

I want to focus on trauma that we are carrying at the root- there's a seed of trauma inside of us. This month I am sharing a simple ritual for you to use to reveal and face the trauma in order to heal it and release it and LET GO and move forward into a fresh, new, clean start.


Brushing is a really great way to clean out the old to make way for the new!

When we start to brush our hair on a regular basis, we are stimulating the follicle. This is what is going to increase the circulation in our scalps, which helps the new hair to grow at a quicker pace. Brushing helps pull out the loose hairs that tend to get tangled with the healthy strands, which also prevents additional hair shedding.

Brushing is a very nurturing and healing way to ground at any point during the month or even day.

Choose a brush that works best for your hair type. My all time favorite is the Natural Bristle Brush created by Roxie Jane Hunt. This type of brush is great for removing build up, while leaving strands soft and silky.

I recommend the Free Your Hair Classic Brush 


This can be an altar, meditation space or you can create a space for this particular ritual.


Using a traditional smudging ritual, choose a plant or herb that resonates with you most, like white sage, palo santo, or sweetgrass.

AURA CLEANSING: Use the smoke from the herb to scan the body, purifying and cleansing, bringing peace, clarity and healing.

SPACE CLEARING: Use the smoke from the herb to scan and clear a space from unwanted, negative energy.


For the Meditation, sit or lay, relax, root and center.

Drop in and start to feel where you might be storing some old trauma in the body-Going back to the the trauma.

Whatever arises for you, face it. Watch the whole scene play out, detail by detail.

In this scene, notice yourself- What feelings are surfacing for you?? Connect to that.

As you watch the whole scene play through, in its entirety, pause it.

Go back to you in the physical, what are you feeling?

With this, think about that situation and think about how you would like to go back and shift it.

Replay the story with your ideal outcome. Replay the story with you being the full embodiment of who you are now-stepping into that space, stepping into your power, speaking your voice, and shifting the entire story.

What would you say? How would you feel? What lesson would you capture and walk away with? And what lessons would you teach? Transform the whole scenario into the most positive, light filled experience, and with that story, hold onto to that!

This is your opportunity to go deep within and allow yourself to be healed.

Wherever the trauma was stored in the body, fill that space with Light energy and start to visualize the light energy expand, filling the entire body, and surround your entire being.

Fill the light rooted at your core and feel the light emanating at your crown. Shoot the energy straight up through the crown, into the sky and out into the cosmos, connecting with universal energy.

Shoot the energy down into your root, through to the earth, to the core center of the planet and allow yourself to feel that deep rooting and expansive cosmic energy.

Allow that energy to surround you...

Come back into your body, come back into your center, if you're lying down, take your time, but when you are ready, sit up, and with this new energy and Lightness you are feeling, with the new story you have created around this old trauma- start to nurture yourself.


Visualize- what it is you are brushing away, wanting to release, wanting to shed and let go of once and for all. Whatever story used to play and visualize the new hair coming in, the new birth, the new growth, the new life! The NEW STORY!

Spend 5-10 minutes with this brushing ritual, once you're done, collect the hair that has been released in the brush. If you have the ability to go outside and offer it to the Earth, please do so. If you are in a city and unable to access nature, keep the hair in a bag or somewhere safe, to bring with you the next time you will be in nature you can release it.

Once you release this energy and this hair and offer it to the Earth, you're now making a conscious offering to release the trauma and release the story and really start to birth new transformation.

Happy New Moon in Scorpio, Many Blessings to you all!



This month's New Moon falls on October 8th in the airy sign of Libra.

Coinciding with the first days of fall, this New Moon is one that will feel like a fresh, new beginning for all of us... Insert deep long breath here.

The energy of Libra highlights the need for balance in our relationships- with ourselves and with others. Libra is ruled by Venus: the planet of love, beauty and feminine energy. It encourages us all to look inward and ask ourselves- What needs nurturing and loving care? In these modern times, it is so easy to get caught up in our technology and the excitement of go-go-go. But have you taken the time to really connect with your feminine nature? Venus is asking us to soften and open ourselves more- the easiest way to nurture the feminine is through creating self nurturing rituals for ourselves.

In this month's Ritual Series, I share the importance of balancing ourselves through balancing our Crown- or Crown Chakra- which is located at the top of the head. We can deepen our connection to ourselves as well as deepen our connection to the world around us by balancing our Crown. Much like the Libra energy we are moving into, our crown chakras are responsible for creating beauty, radiance, and that inner glow we all strive for (Hello feminine!)

One of my favorite ways to balance the Crown is with a healing hair ritual- which is what this months Ritual is all about!

Other powerful ways to heal the crown chakra are:

  • Meditation

  • Yoga

  • Sitting in the sunlight, allowing the sun to warm the top of your head.

  • Essential Oil's which soothe and stimulate an imbalanced crown chakra

I will share with you a few simple steps for creating your own healing hair ritual.

This is something you can do solo, with a partner, or even with a group of close friends or family!


A powerful way to connect and recenter ourselves is through creating self-care rituals. Rituals are considered solemn ceremonies consisting of a series of actions imbued with intention. Something as simple as hair-care can become a sacred “ritual” if you create the space for self-healing.

Here are some tips on creating your own “hairemony” aka sacred ceremony for your hair!

Step 1: Set an intention for your Hair Ritual

This can be as simple as focusing on growth, or scalp healing, moisture or shine. To get more intentional, try creating a Hairemony in line with the Moon phases.

NEW MOONS- a powerful moon phase to plant seeds of intention. It is a window of time to manifest. Maybe longer hair? Quicker growing? Or something unrelated to hair, like love or abundance!

FULL MOONS- this moon phase focuses on what it is we would like to shed, or let go of what no longer supports our highest selves. It is a great time for hair thickening and strengthening.

Step 2: Clear your aura and the space around you

Using a traditional smudging ritual, choose a plant or herb that resonates with you most, like white sage, palo santo, or sweetgrass.

AURA CLEANSING: Use the smoke from the herb to scan the body, purifying and cleansing, bringing peace, clarity and healing.

SPACE CLEARING: Use the smoke from the herb to scan and clear a space from unwanted, negative energy.

Step 3: Choose oil best for your hair

Choose oil for your specific hair type/needs

MOISTURE- Coconut, Avocado

NOURISH- Jojoba, Olive Oil

REPAIR AND HEAL- Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Black Cumin Seed Oil

Step 4: Massage deeply into scalp and pull through ends

Oils will nourish the hair and scalp. They can be used on wet or dry hair. Using a little at a time, massage oil onto the scalp. Massaging stimulates the hair follicle, aiding in hair growth and healing the scalp. Pull the oil through the ends of the hair until they are lightly coated. It is recommended to leave oil in the hair for max amount of time for its healing abilities. One hour, or over night is perfect.

Step 5: Shampoo and Condition

Follow with shampoo to cleanse and clarify the hair and the aura. Then use conditioner to add extra moisture and shine. This will seal the cuticle, protecting the hair and crown.

Happy Hair Healing!



For the month of September, I am sharing some simple, DIY Rituals (with a little guidance from me) to help you supercharge your life with the new energy of Virgo!

The grounding energy of Virgo is the calm we need after the Leo's storm of activity. I'm sure we have all experienced some massive transformation over these past few months, thanks in no small part to the many retrograde planets, eclipses and auspicious planetary alignments. This month, though, I want to encourage you to ground down the energy we have all gained and integrate it in order to heal. Virgo is an Earth sign- one that is rooted and balanced. It councils us to take precise steps, calculated towards a certain goal. This is a great window in time to be intentional with exactly what you are manifesting right now.

Virgo is the month of cleansing, resetting and connecting deeper to our higher self, mainly because this is a sign that takes health and self-improvement to the next level.

One of the easiest ways to connect to our higher self is through meditation practice and any work we do on our Crowns.

Crown work is all about that connection to our higher self. It is our gateway to accessing inner beauty, radiance and “inner glow”. I will discuss this even deeper in next month’s Libra Video...

September also marks a shift in season. We are transitioning from summer into fall, and it is a perfect moment to give our bodies a break, cleanse both internally, and allow ourselves to shift into the new season ahead.

This is a great time to create new routines and habits, which is why I discuss the importance of consistency in these scalp and hair care rituals. With consistency and repetition, these simple acts can become habits centered around nurturing ourselves. Transformation comes from practice.  It is not about instant gratification; it is about the lasting effects.

In the yogic sciences, there is a saying- “Your habits define you.”

Whether or not we have Virgo in our chart, we are all living on Earth and are directly affected by the cycles of the moon. On each new moon, we have a new energy to work with and through.

As always, I want to really encourage you to set an intention before dropping into the Rituals. New Moons are a fresh, new opportunity for you to call in whatever you're manifesting for this specific moon phase.

Be Intentional!


**Pre-Wash** Scalp Scrub and Hair Treatment

  • · Cleanse your aura and the space around you with your favorite space clearing smudge.

  • · Prepare your Salt Scrub:

2 tablespoons of Salt

Salt is mineralizing and improves your scalp’s circulation. It relieves dryness, itchiness, and imbalances due to seasonal shifts. Salt is purifying, and it adds volume to the roots of the hair by absorbing excess oil and buildup.

*Use any household Sea Salt*

½ of 1 Lemon

Lemons are packed with vitamin C which cleanses the scalp while removing buildup and excess oil.

2 tablespoons of Oil

Oil helps soothe, nourish and hydrates the skin on the scalp.

*Use oil of choice-whatever is best for your hair type and texture*

  • · Prepare a Hair Treatment with coconut oil, or oil of your choice. Oils seal the cuticle of the hair with moisture and hydration, adding shine and luster back into the hair.

Moisturizing oils: coconut oil, avocado oil

Nourishing oils: jojoba oil, olive oil

Repairing oils: meadowfoam seed oil, black cumin seed oil. Using ¼ cup of oil, massage the oil into the scalp and pull it through the hair all the way to the ends. I suggest keeping the oil treatment in for a minimum of 1 hour, but overnight is best for maximum hydration. Shampoo as many times as you need (2-3 to remove all oil) concentrating on the scalp, then follow through with conditioner. The oils help to seal in moisture and keeps hair smooth and shiny.




For the month of August, I am sharing a few rituals along with guidance to help you supercharge your life with the new energy of Leo! The Sign of Leo is depicted as a Lion. Leo is ruled by the Sun and fire... How fitting for the hottest month of the year!

Fire signs are often identified by their strength, creativity, confidence, and fun-loving spirits. LEO is often symbolized by the Crown, representing royalty. This month is a powerful window in time to spend time balancing our “crowns” through caring for our manes. The Sun represents the Self- both the ego self and our highest Self. One of the ways I like to balance the crown is to sit out in the sun to soak it up through the center of the head. For me, it immediately begins the work. A balanced crown is a balanced connection to self, spirit and the world around you.

Leo rules the Heart. We are welcoming this month's New Moon with a partial solar eclipse. Eclipses bring things up to the surface for us to evaluate, examine and truly release. Similar to the New Moon, the eclipse helps to push forward new ideas and shifts, releasing and ending, to make way for new beginnings, new directions and openings (Opening of the Heart!)

One of the biggest themes for Leo is forgiveness, and this month we have the opportunity to heal through forgiveness. This type of healing allows for us to open the heart to a deeper connection to Love. Love is the most powerful energy that we have! And this month we are connected to the ability to really tap into that heart space and utilize it to our advantage! Love helps us to heal our relationships as we use it to heal ourselves.

Whether or not we have Leo in our chart, we are all living on Earth and are directly effected by the cycles of the moon. On each new moon, we have a new energy to work with and through.

So, this month:

What ways can we connect to our own sovereignty?

What ways can we step into our power?

How can we use this sun energy to create more energy and expand?

How can we use the symbol of fire to take action towards the visions we are wanting to release into the world?

How can we step into leadership and share our gifts?

How can we Forgive more and Open our hearts more?

Ultimately- How can we love more? Ourselves, and others?

As always, I really encourage setting an intention before dropping into the Rituals I offer. This is an opportunity for you to call in whatever you're manifesting for this moon phase, along side some deep nourishing with our Leo manes! Please ponder these questions while you sprinkle these Rituals into the next 30 days of this lunar cycle...


The extreme temperatures can wreak havoc on our sensitive strands.

Heat from the sun, salt from the ocean, chlorine from pools, all pull moisture from the hair, making it brittle, and leading to damage. Here are a few powerful, yet simple, self-care rituals that can help keep hair moisturized and nourished during this fiery month!

The Magic of Moisturizing Products

  • Moisturizing Shampoos and Conditioners help replace lost moisture. Using a hydrating shampoo and conditioner with moisturizing oils like coconut, shea, jojoba, and argan adds hydration to those moisture starved strands. I always encourage my clients to find products without the added sulphates and parabens, as these toxic ingredients tend to strip the hair of its natural oils. Adding nutrient rich, hydrating ingredients for an extra dose moisture is necessary to replenish and seal the ends, protecting the hair from extreme external elements.

  • I recommend La Tierra Sagrada Shampoo and Conditioner

Internal Oils

  • Taking oils internally is equally as important as using them topically. I encourage including Fish Oil, Omega 3's, coconut oil, and avocado in your daily regiment as often as possible. Omega 3's help to keep hair strong, its anti-inflammatory properties help prevent hair loss and alleviate dry, itchy scalp. Your hair needs these natural oils to produce shine from the inside out.

  • I love the Cap Beauty Coconut Butter. I add it to my coffee, smoothies, or take it by the spoon full daily. 

Brushing Ritual

  • Brushing pulls the hair’s natural oils from the scalp down into the hair, acting as a natural moisturizer. Natural bristle brushes- preferably a Mason Pearson or similar type of natural or boar bristle brush- are gentler and less damaging than metal and synthetic versions. Using a brush in your hair-care rituals is a powerful way to clear the old (build up from summer) to make way for the new- Hair! Brushing encourages circulation in the scalp which is a sweet way to keep your mane nourished, free, and flowing!

  • I recommend the Free Your Hair Classic Brush 

Replenish Moisture in Those Starved Strands & Scalp

  • Using nutrient rich products with protective oils re-hydrates the scalp as well as the ends of the hair. This is one of the absolute best ways to heal and protect the hair. Using a super-moisturizing hair Treatment can help replenish dry and frizzy locks. I suggest choosing an oil that is suitable for your hair, and massage it into the scalp. Once you've treated yourself to a head massage, pull the oil through the hair all the way to the ends. I like keeping it on overnight and washing it out in the morning for maximum hydration. The oils lock in moisture and keep the hair smooth and shiny. Topical hydration is important to maintain the shine. For scalp imbalances, oils like coconut and Jojoba are really nourishing. I always suggest coating the scalp and hair with Coconut or Jojoba oil while at the beach, pool, river or just some fun in the sun-as these oils contain natural SPF and protect the scalp and hair from UV rays.

  • I recommend La Tierra Sagrada Hair Treatment or Jojoba Oil

One last thing!

As I was sitting down to write these thoughts, I was drawn to pull a card from my sacred geometry deck and to ask for a guide to help us all navigate this new moon phase.

Out of all of the cards, I pulled the Archangel Jeremiel Card.

If you want to work with a specific guide this month- I recommend looking him up to learn more!

He is the angel of divine mercy, forgiveness and love. How appropriate for this Leo energy!

He is here to guide us in acting in loving ways, with ourselves and all others.

“He is the Angel who allows us to look back over our life and gain clarity on where we are today. He is a miracle worker and he helps us to bring the flame of forgiveness into our hearts so that we can move forwards in a more fearless and powerful way. You can evoke his presence by visualizing his bright yellow, orange and gold aura surrounding you.”*” -~ By Kyle Gray

For the month of July,  I am sharing a ritual and guidance to help you supercharge your life with the energy of Cancer in this New Moon.

In a world where “being the Light” is considered the new “cool”, we often neglect our other important half, the darkness. It is in all of us, even the lightest of beings, as a reminder that we are human and we all have a shadow.

So why do we often choose to neglect those parts that tend to be “darker”?

Are you aware that the darker versions of Self are necessary in order to help us seek and reveal the Light within? Our Shadow side is the one we tend to hide from the world and choose not reveal, confront or face.

In astrology, it is our “moon”- the inner self- which we tend to hide. Our Moon is a reflection of the ebb and flow of our emotions. We spend so much of our time living our fast paced lives in our external world, yet we do not understand the importance of slowing down and taking the time to go within to experience our true self.

The true work of the Shaman is to stand in the depths of the unknown and face our darkest shadow instead of masking it with our new found trend of “the Light”. The energy of Cancer assists us in facing our fears and digging deep into the core of our inner work.

Whether or not you are an astrological devotee, there are endless reasons why cutting your hair in accordance with the phases of the moon can influence the health of your mane! What is it that you are manifesting at this particular point in time?

  • Syncing up with the moon connects us to the natural rhythm and flow of the universe. Cutting our hair is a powerful way to manifest and harvest fresh, new ideas. Similar to the planting time, the new moon is a powerful time to plant new seeds of intention.

  • Cutting our hair during the new moon aids in hair growth, strength, thickening and overall health.

  • The Moon helps to reveal the multiples sides of our psyches that we all try to hide (Hello Shadow). As an example, those born under the sign of Cancer tend to wear masks to hide from the fear of rejection or fear of being emotionally wounded.

  • What masks do you wear that could be keeping you limited from making your manifestations your reality?

  • What would it feel like to allow yourself to be fully revealed, both dark and light?

  • What would it feel like to be open and free from self limiting thought patterns that are not actually real?

The primary intention for cutting your hair during a New Moon Rituals is to remind you to plant new seeds for the future (A NEW YOU). 


For the July New Moon Ritual, I encourage you to get a Haircut!  It doesn't have to be a full on cut, but I do encourage at least a trim.  I understand the resistance- I have several clients who cherish their long locks and want to grow their hair as long as possible, however, I recommend a minimal trim to keep the ends healthy and to prevent splitting. 

At the end of the cut, collect the trimmings from the floor and package them to go home with you.  If not all of the trimmings, at least a few pieces.  Yes, this may seem a bit strange, but tell your stylist you are collecting for a New Moon ritual.  Hopefully, they will understand or at least, become intrigued ; )

If you do not need a haircut or trim or are unable to do either at this moment in time, try to collect a tiny piece of your own hair by pulling a strand of hair from the back or nape of the neck, then cut away a tiny part of the end of the strand of hair and save for the ceremony. In all cases; a cut, trim or piece of hair, you will make this an offering to the Earth.

Bury your hair offering along with your Cancer New Moon Manifestations and as you do this ceremony, remember you are planting the seeds of intention for the new part of you that is waiting to emerge to the surface!
