Here's This Week's Video:

Virgo Season

The Sun moved from Leo to Virgo at 2:02 pst on August 23, 2023. 


Have you done your Virgo prep WeRK! If you can look back to what you were doing this time last year. Using our calendars, social media memories and past emails can be a great way to see what was up for us this time last year (or go back farther if you can). I love this process and it's one of the places where I get the juiciest juice! 

MoonScopes | Where Is The Moon?!

WTF is a MoonScope?

This week The Moon will be in Aquarius,  Pisces, and Aries this week.


The Moon will move thru its Full Moon Phase in Pisces.


What Houses will The Moon light up in your chart? Notice what Houses are being traveled in your chart to see where you may be more emotional or intuitive this week. It's also valuable to notice what planets in your natal chart will be illuminated by The Moon

“You are worthy of doing your ShadowWeRK, the hard WeRK. You are worthy of the cleanse. Your emotions are valuable. They are Magical Gifts and Tools meant for you.” Pisces Full Moon Ritual…

Virgo Sun | ARIES MOON |



Fighting for Universal Health Care that also covers vision, dental, mental, spiritual and self fucking care treatments. FFS. 


MAGICmooning | This Week's Moon Phase & Ritual


The Full Moon is about reflection, rejoicing, & revelation. This Lunation is about seeing the true truths so we can rejoice in their gifts & opportunities even if they fucking suck. It’s time to honestly consider the shit we find in this part of our chart. There’s nowhere for our Shadow WeRK to hide during a Full Moon.

The Virgo Season Moon Rituals are live

Are you ready for the annual cleanse? 

THIS WEEK: Full Moon in Pisces | August 30, 2023 | 18:35pst | 7º25'

FM RITUAL THOUGHT/JOURNAL PROMPTS: What did you learn as you burned your sticks, leaves, and/or papers from the FQ Moon in Sag? How do you feel about sharing your hidden or repressed emotions now? Were you surprised by what you discovered in that process? How did you help others better share their shit? Do you value all of your emotions more now? Can you make this process a permanent part of your life and ShadowWeRK going forward? 

SweetAstro Collective  | UPDATES, prep tools, how-to videos, & more…

NEW WeRKBOOKS Now Available!

I've released a NEW version of the SweetAstro Collective WeRKbooks! 


This is a lite version of the SweetAstro WeRKbook called the MOONlite WeRKbook.


It's similar but simplified, focusing on only Sun & Moon transits to your chart. It still has weekly journal pages (but fewer) as well as prep pages for Moon Rituals, divination pages, three Sun Seasons, and one Quarterly prep page too. 


It's still a Magical planner for the next three months so please check it out! This will be part of the last round of WeRKbook BETA testing so I appreciate everyone who has been participating & sharing feedback so far. 


Who is this WeRKbook for? If you found the SweetAstro WeRKbook to be too complicated or intense for your current lifestyle this WeRKbook may be a better starting point for you. It's also more gentle for those of you who don't have as much Astrology experience. 


The MOONlite WeRKbook is also available for the first time DIGITALLY. So, if you've been wanting to try out a paperless version of the WeRKbook offerings, now is your chance. 


I look forward to your feedback and if you'd like to share this with your peeps you are more than welcome to do that AND thanks in advance for helping me grow the test audience. I know there is a group of you doing this like a book club and I've heard great things about doing this WeRK with accountability buddies (so fun!)


Of course, the full SweetAstro WeRKbook 4.0 will also be available (launching 9/6) so look out for that if you want to keep going on that trajectory.

Don't forget to check in on your Mercury Retrograde in Virgo WeRK! 


How's it been going for you? What happened for during the Ingress Shadow Period? If we skip the review part we may miss some important clues and signals that Mercury sends during the Retrograde Period. This is our chance to do the editing and fixing of what was fucked up during the Shadow. Let me know if you need any help with this technique!

GENERAL U P D A T E S  | announcements, events & special offerings…

Check out my new ART JOURNALS. I've been back in the studio reconnecting to the Magic of Process Based Art. It's been awhile since I've made space for this practice and I am so happy to be tending to my SELF in this way again. It's so important for my health and wellness AND it's also one of my Magical Gifts and Tools to create spells and disruptive Magic via Process Based Art. I'll be sharing more of this Magic with y'all going forward so I hope you're also leaning into reconnecting with your Magical Gifts and Tools as we move into Virgo Season. If you want to get your hands on some of my Magic you can snatch up one of these blank journals… I only made 11 of them so when they're gone, that's it (well, for this round anyway. I am sure I'll make more when the mood strikes!) 


But, there's good news! It looks like a few of the projects I'd been holding some time for aren't going to come together after all so I'll likely be sharing some new openings this autumn. Obviously the Waiting Circle folx get first dibs on those dates but if they don't sign up by the deadline (TBD) I'll be opening the calendar up to everyone. I am thinking I may be able to do all this next week so keep your eyes open HERE & in your emails for those updates!

CHECK OUT MY JENNIFER MAGAZINE ARTICLE | Virgo Season. Rewriting The Health & Wellness Doctrine of Capitalism

Don't forget that you can revisit my July article in Jennifer Magazine as part of your Leo Season reflection WeRK. There is some good stuff in there MoonBeams so even if you read it at the beginning of the month I recommend going back and reading it again to see how it lands now.

Check out the other articles in Jennifer Magazine too. I am so honored and excited to be part of this disruptive and influential publication.

For Virgo Season I wrote an article about using Mercury Retrograde cycles to do deep personal ShadowWeRK while also fighting capitalism, patriarchy, and whiteness. It's good stuff.

RECAP ON THE CARD OF THE WEEK: Since I always think of Tarot as the most Virgo Tool ever I thought it would be fun to pull a card for each week during the rest of the Mercury Retrograde Cycle, especially since it's rolling thru Virgo and doing all this weird shit to me. 


I also thought it would be fun NOT to talk about or share any interpretations of the cards. Instead, I invite YOU to do some research about the card and how it relates to your week. Add this to your journaling and notes. I'll do the same. Then, after this cycle is done I'll lay them all out and we can see if there's a bigger message or interesting pattern there. Sound fun? 







Personal Updates: This week was pretty quiet. I am glad to be moving back into a house that has been literally cleansed of literal walls and floors. It was much more cathartic than I expected, especially since getting rid of things is not my natural way of being, LOL. What have you been cleansing out of your life during the dual Retrogrades (Venus and Mercury)? 


Virgo Season is really bringing in the cleansing energy and even the First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius was a massive cleanse. It's so good, but so deep! I hope you're all doing well with it!


Here are some photos of my Moon Ritual WeRK:

I love when y'all share photos of your Moon Rituals and your WeRK in your WeRKbooks!

Thanks to @tew_offerings / Hannah for always being so supportive of my WeRK. She always shares her updates and feedback and since she's been around this process for quite some time now you can all be grateful for her because her encouragement often keeps me going some times! Thanks Hannah & I hope to see you IRL soon (pssst, that might be a hint to something that's gonna happen in 2024 y'all!

If you haven't checked out the Moon Rituals yet, I hope you'll get in there and soak up some of the Magic that's flowing through me for y'all.

The Virgo Season Moon Rituals are always big for me! Must be because I have Virgo in the House of the Goddess (3rd House)

Thanks for all the feedback and compliments, I swear I wasn't fishing for that, LOL. Y'all are so amazing. I hope you know that. I appreciate you so much… that's my feedback! This ComMOONity is the besssst!!!


Keeping this reminder in, just so everyone knows I may be a bit slow to respond to things the week of 9/11… I am having a really exciting surgery in September so I'll be recuperating for at least a week (9/11-17).


I absolutely WILL traveling to some really exciting events in October - I'll let y'all know more about that soon. And, if y'all can send some good energy my way… I applied to a really exciting, intensive Death Doula training in mid-November. Still no word on this yet… ahhhh, I hate waiting. I hope I am accepted, but if not that's a new path that's been calling me for years and I am ready to answer. If anyone has any interest or experience with Death WeRK and you want to chat about it, let me know. Yes, there will be new offerings coming forth from this WeRK here too. (Expect The Unexpected).


As I said above, I've been making more art and crafting more crafts in the studio for the last few weeks so if you're interested, willing, able, etc. to share any of my sales content that's being generated there I'd be so grateful. I am hoping to reopen my retail shoppe as the HollerDaze approach and it would be so Magical to be able to have more engagement there. You can also make your wish/gift lists and let me know what kinds of things you may like to see there too! Again, I am so grateful for all the support and I hope you feel the Magic I am putting out there for the collective. (Art Spells, yay!)


Please keep let me know how you're doing out there!  I love hearing from y'all! And don't forget you can text me at the number below OR email too.


Enjoy the rest of the season and I am here if Virgo Season gets bumpy for ya!


xo, d
