Introducing The Moon Muses


The Moon Muses are intuitive guides and question askers that offer insight and wisdom along with exercises to heal and inspire you. They are creative leap takers forming a glowing moonlit bridge between your rational self and your higher self, a self that dwells in pure intuition, clairvoyance (clear seeing), meditative reflection and dreaming. This month you will meet Ruby, a Gemstone Guide and a Lefty Oracle Muse by the name of Sexy Sunflower. I encourage all of you to create a Moon Musing Journal to record your monthly moon explorations and creative longings.


A Message from Ruby


Sometimes words just aren’t enough to express the wisdom of the heart so take a moment to let her ruby redness fill your soul, your heart and your mind with shining, luscious bounty. 


Now, just sit and absorb, feel and allow yourself to receive, just receive and with thanks and gratitude to the Divine, feel yourself blessed.


How are you feeling now? Happy? Sad? Alone? Fulfilled? If you’re feeling lonely and would like to share your heart with someone special then you will be able to do just that – first trust, and then they will appear.


Heart Affirmation:


I ____________________, am fulfilled and happy as I am right now, in this moment.


Each day I share my best qualities with others, which are: _________________________ and I am open to receiving and giving love.


My heart is full. Any sadness and anger I might be feeling are released as I write down these words and let them go.


I _________________________, release my feelings _____________________ so that I may be fully heart-present in this very moment.


If you’re still feeling heart-sad then request help and guidance from your Guides and your Higher Power allowing your burdens to be lightened and your cares and concerns acknowledged, accepted and then released.






My Version of Leo – Year of the Sexy Sunflower

"Sexy Sunflower" is part of a series of 500 or so left-handed (my non-dominant hand!) drawings I created over a period of five years. These drawings were later turned into an oracle card deck that I use for giving Soul Readings.


Sexy Sunflower has appeared to remind all of us to Bring Forth Our Brilliance!


So remember:

Stand Tall, you are a sunflower today as the New Moon enters Leo.


For today you will play, even if it’s just for a moment. For today you are a Sexy Sunflower and you will laugh and love and shine your rays into the darkness so that you can see into all corners of the earth. Today you will dance the Dance of the Sunflower and create your world in colors of your own choosing for Love is your Guide.


What color is your joy? What sound?


Affirmation: I am God/dess. I am complete.
