The first Full Moon of the year falls on Jan 1 2018, is at 11 degrees Cancer. AS it is in opposition to Venus, it may highlight and bring to much needed surface, the differences between love and affection fel;t between two people and if those two are partners romantically or otherwise.
This is a loving moon, a Motherly Moon, one that wants to Nurture. But a Mother will not Nurture under false pretense, nor will this Full Super Moon in January 2018. Our Mother Earth, Our true essence, is asking us to define our TRUE desires and Our TRUE IDENTITY and to step forward into this role for this New Year.
The foundation has been set last year. We have done the work, laying the stable core value and brick of ethics and code in 2017, to evolve and vibrate with the light we were born to shine.
Take from now until January 9th, during this transition period to establish with certainty the parts of family, love, joy, that were off balance or distraction in the previous year. This year, instead use TRUE IDENTITY to ensure the harmony of all the limbs or wheels to be aligned to reach our full potential in Flow.
The Moon in Cancer calls us to use our intuition to guide us. Our Intuition will not steer us wrong. We may not like the paths we have to go or avoid to honor this intuition, but in the long run, you and your purpose will best be served by following her guidance.
This Month will have a second Full Moon with an Exclipse. This as all Moon Cycles, is important energy to journal. I strongly feel the next 2 2 1/2 years will be essential to jopurnal and document your insights, rememberences, your visions into the future. The creations you are manifestion. The seeds you are planting and the intentions you are setting.
This is the most powerful few moon energies I have experienced since I can remember the light workers are going to make a shift as prodicted and we will have world change. So make sure to draw, make symbols, color meanings, even what now may not make sense will one day if not to you, to someone you sharee with.
As we move to the Age of Aquarian Teachings Everything is going to be seen with the pure love and innonce of a newborn and what a beautiful view of our new world we are creating together.
Celebrate the New Positive Change that has just occurred with herbal tea, sacred music or dance. You can drum or stare at the stars what ever feels right for this cycle, as each will be different.
Date the Mantra you created and keep it near your computer of vanity mirror where you can see it everyday. Have a box or beautiful book or container to place this Affirmation - Mantra when this cycle has moved into the following New Moon. It is a beautiful way to celebrate a new year or birthday to go back over the cards you created and see all the Positive change you manifest in a year.Read More

Peace + Love,
I hope everyone set some good intentions with this new moon in Capricorn. The Capricorn is associated with the Mountain Goat. They only focus on the top of the mountain and planning on getting there. So this is a great time to make plans for how you are going to reach your desired goals or "top of the mountain" in the upcoming New Year.
Incorporating rituals can be very powerful in manifesting. I perform a ritual and ceremony with every full and new moon. Often my children enjoy doing them with me. I have brought so many desired results in my life, it is my belief these rituals and intention based ceremony, have assisted me with creating positive change and purpose in my life.
The New Moon is a time to plant seeds. Not to be confused with the burning and releasing rituals of FULL moon Ceremony. This is a period to reflect and write down your intentions and growth in mind body and Spirit. I carry a journal with me the week leading up to and the day of the new moon and I write down everything I would like to see or feel or create for the good of myself and all those around me.
To keep record and have a vision journal, you can either take a photo of your list of seeds you are planting or you can write it twice one you will keep in the journal, the other you will plant in the earth like a seed. Your vision board/journal can be virtual or digital if you go with the photo. It is important to keep track of your desires so you can determine your progress and accomplishments.
My children and I are always pleased when the cycle comes to an end and we see how powerful the universe and ourselves were at creating our reality.
The evening of the full moon, myself or my children and I sit in the back yard, with bare feet we ground ourselves by connecting to nature and the vibrations of earth.
We light candles, clear the space to make it sacred and bring any crystals, acorns, rocks, wood, figurines, etc that have meaning to us. We have a natural water source a pond that we sit close to, so we do not bring water, if you do not have water available. Bring sme and a copper, glass or stainless steel bowl for the water element. We take a few moments to breathe, with focus of calming and centering our minds.
We then read our intentions out loud, only if we want to. If we want to keep ANY to ourselves, that is perfectly ok. I believe that speaking intentions and desires out loud gives them power and energy, so we read the ones we are comfortable with 1-3 times.
Then we go to the spot in our yard that we have assigned to "plant" our seeds. We dig small holes, with bare hands to connect with the earth and we separate the paper from our journal (making sure to have a copy). We roll each written intention, goal, or plan into a ball and plant it like a seed.
Any burning rituals should be done on the FULL moon as it is a time of releasing things to the universe, source, ancestors etc and trusting them to handle all your worries.
The dark side of the moon, much like the womb is the perfect environment for creation and miracles. This is why we plant seeds and nurture our intentions with the new moon energy. We finish with a prayer of gratitude and feel secure that Mother Earth will nurture our seeds.
My children were with family tonight at Disney so I did some seed planting for them too, I will show them their goals and wishes and my intention and hopes for them when they arrive back home.
Enjoy MY NEW MOON RITUAL PROCESS. I invite you to borrow mine or create your own. Please share your ceremony or intention for the next lunar cycle.
I give you permission to step into your purpose, to be a Mama on a mission, and to shine your light bright. The world needs your modern day feminine power. The world needs your love. Step forward into your space and return to us.
Do not fear your children and family will suffer if you choose to be the light worker you were born to be. In fact, you will not only serve your children, but also yourself and the planet by choosing holistic freedom.
You can have it all. You can be a good Mother and Wife and still fulfill your passion, live your vision, and help others do the same. The world needs our medicine woman.
I give you permission to shine your love light bright. There is enough love inside you for the entire world to benefit.

How do you handle fear and vulnerability?
I do not think there is one of us that has not had a fearful occasion or two in our life. We all have a story, or if you are like me, many stories. The end result and the way we deal with scary situations or trauma, however, is our choice. You can make a decision to be a victim or decide you are a survivor. In my opinion, there is only one way to deal with fear and that is to FACE THE FEAR. This skill is something that can be developed, exercised and maintained to push thru. There are many names for mental power : mindset, energy medicine or healing, faith, law of attraction, or the power of positive thinking, are a few. At the end of the day, what we call it does not matter, just mastering the concept and continued commitment to development is what will define your success in life. Sometimes we have situations that occur that are out of our control, but I believe with every part of my mind, body, and soul, that WE CAN CONTROL OUTCOMES WHEN WE FACE THE FEAR. When we let go, release, and have absolute faith that the universe - Spirit- God- source, will handle our fate, this is when the magic begins to happen. It is up to us to allow them to guide us.
I am very passionate about educating and empowering other women and children this mindset medicine mastery. My method and practice has helped me thru the premature birth of my first born child that weighed lbs, was hospitalized on life support for the four months of his life. This early arrival was 2004. I lived on Orlando Florida, The Sunshine State. The 2004 late summer season had numerous unusual occurrences. With six hurricanes reaching at least Category 3 intensity. 2004 had the most major hurricanes since 1964. Florida was severely impacted by not one, but four hurricanes during the season - Charley, Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne.
My strength of mind and MINDSET MASTERY, also aided me in recovering from a past marriage that was unhealthy and abusive, once I discovered his betrayals. I healed the cancer I was told I had and I have helped many other clients, friends, and family members triumph and overcome health, life, and relationship crisis. To create their own life stories of victory, by facing their fear and maintaining a positive mindset.
If you feel like there is no way out of you circumstance, there is a way out. If you think there is no way to recover, you can recover. If you feel defeated, hopeless and helpless, I have been there. I have CHOSEN TO BE A SURVIVOR. I refuse to be a victim. It is my belief that we all have the spirit and will inside of us to make miracles happen. I have seen these miracles with my own eyes. As a holistic healer, light leader, and alternative medicine practitioner with 22 years experience I have seen people heal themselves, change their relationships, improve there reality and transform naturally.
Sometimes the greatest obstacle with fear is the inability to ask for help. I know this, because I have lived in this space. The truth is the Universe and your own mind, body and spirit are in a continued motion to heal, create harmony, and balance in our bodies. It is my mission to educate others on how to tap into this energy and way of thinking. These are not new age "hocus pocus", but rather, ancient practices and used by ancestors in every region. This is a modern day practice of ancient rituals.
My goal is to empower others with these tools. I want to encourage women and children to overcome, become anything they desire and live a happy beautiful life. I am opening registration for my Signature FROM FEAR TO FREEDOM 22 day online group event and workshop. I am holding space for 22 people that are ready and willing to find health, success, peace and happiness in all areas of their life.

Moon Magic - sacred adornments, elixirs, remedies, and tonics. Moon Rituals. Self Care Rituals
With the self care rituals revival in full swing, take advantage of the FULL MOON and the sacred practice of MOON RITUALS. Native American and other cultures have been practicing moon rituals since ancient times with the wisdom of the health benefit to self of letting go of the past, not dwelling on hardships and setting new intentions for the next phase and future.
I hope you are ready for a major energy shift because it is coming and it is big. Just be aware and prepare for it, and forgive your friends and family if they are not themselves. It's just a Aquarius Full Moon thing! This full moon is also an eclipse, so the Sun, Moon, and Earth are all aligned. The Moon will pass behind the Earth and into its shadow. Take advantage of the natural reflective occurrence as a signal to reflect on the past.
During this Full Moon Phase lay the groundwork for what is to come. You must not only set intentions but see them through. Think about things you have been putting off - projects- ideas-to do list. put in the work now, face sticky situations and move on. This is necessary to cleanse the soul and spirit for the new season.
The Eclipse will bring opportunity for greater spiritual connection, I recommend quite time alone to reflect. You will find the answers in the silence or stillness. So break free and let go of any thing that is weighing you down or you have been avoiding. Take advantage of the symbolic power of the full moon and eclipse together to prepare you for the rest of year. Face and communicate like a warrior with grace.
Ways this moon might affect you:
Edgier than the norm. Quick to anger -
Care more about yourself and less about what others think
Crave extra love, support, and attention (mothers who usually give all the nurture need it now)
Put yourself and your families needs first
Beautiful Confidence -self awareness- elevated conscious
Shift into happier phase of life
Sacred Moon Rituals

1) Mind your manners when it comes to guest. If you are talking behind your clients back or rolling your eyes, If you are annoyed with them even on the other side of the united states on a computer, they can feel it Not only is it really bad mojo. It also is bad energy that you are deflecting onto your customer, your team and your reputation.
2) Retention is key! Is cost you much more to loose a client you already have than to obtain a new one.
“The Loyalty Factor” in research at Harvard, only reaching Extraordinary Service developed loyalty and an increase in profits. Only at or near 5.0 did customers become loyal and even advocates … impacting profits 25% to 90%. Referrals, repeat sales, and more sales from the same customers grew wonderfully at 5-Star locations/organizations.Read More

I am convinced that the key to business success in this modern day is in using a back to the basic approach and intertwining it with the intelligence of current technology. Just like any other wave in life, if is in finding the balance. Some business platforms have much potential but without the holistic human emotion link these business plans will not work for long term. With more and more information thrown our way from computers, devices, schools, business and other organizations the human brain in its on going desire to seek balance in mind-body-spirit connection will become more and more selective on what is allows in, those that are smart will learn that color therapy can help us gain the attention thru visual art to attract the initial attention of our clients.
Color has a significant and profound effect on all levels of mind-body-spirit. It has a physical effect, can produce emotional and mental behavior, thus causing reaction and memory that can be used to impact the story of your brand and purpose.
We use color to act daily without even noticing it, for example selecting ripe fruits and vegetables.
In Itself Color can have a profound effect on us on all levels, physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.
We are in a world where color dominates our lives, from reading signs on the road to seeing if fruit is ripe to eat. It affects our moods - blue is calming - red can make us tense. We use and experience color everyday in our lives without even appreciating it.
Colors may have played a very important role in the life of early human beings, whose very existence was governed by light and darkness. The concept of color therapy probably originated in ancient Egypt several thousand years ago. The concept of color therapy is based on the fact that our physiologic functions respond in predictable manner to specific colors. Colors and light are intimately connected to human being the land, rivers, trees, forests, and oceans. In fact the every living thing depends on light and to be able to exist most of the living organisms depend on the colors. Color therapy specialists use color in a variety of ways to promote health and healing. Most living things including human being get energized by variety of colors in the day light including bright red, orange, and yellow colors, and calmed and rejuvenated by the blue, indigo, and violet colors of the night. There is some scientific evidence to suggest that every cell in our bodies in fact emits light. Color therapy, also known as chromo therapy, is practiced by many alternative health practitioners. The different colors we see in the world around us are the result of light vibrating at different frequencies.
For the ancients, the colors that make up sunlight were each considered to show a different aspect of the divine and to influence different qualities of life. A therapist trained in color therapy uses color to balance energy wherever our bodies are lacking, be it physical, emotional, spiritual, or mental. Pineal glands, which are intimately, attached to our brain control the daily rhythms of life, light and colors play a big role in controlling that rhythm. We live in a sea of energy where color is working within us. Sunlight, or full-spectrum light, holds all the wavelengths of color in the visible spectrum (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet, and magenta) as well as infrared and ultraviolet light, which cannot be seen. Some of the tools used in color therapy are gemstones, candles, wands, prisms, colored fabrics, bath treatments, and colored eye wear. When light enters through the eyes (or the skin) it travels neurological pathways to pineal glands. It shines with in our divine self, and radiates upon us and traverses through our entire system. Different colors give off different wavelength frequencies and these different frequencies have different effects on physical and psychological functions. Research and observation has shown us that specific colors bring balance to our physical and emotional systems. Chromo therapy can easily be used as a system of alternative treatment to achieve the same results in unblocking meridians without the discomfort of needles used in acupuncture.
Take moments throughout your day to simply be in silence.
This is how we can change the world. This is the way of a spirit warrior.Read More
What is your spirit telling you? I asked mine and this is what I heard my Spirit Warrior tell me. Everyone simmer down! Its a Full Moon on the 22nd with Mars in retrograde!! This is a VERY masculine dominant energy. Relating to "war" Sun and Mars are like King and Soldier.....Mercury will get the kings mission accomplished. Mars "conquers"
Sun is consciousness.
Mars is flow - movement- battle- fire power element Now Mars is slowing down and more noticeable or apparent. Can you feel HIM? I can! He is FIRE. we need space for the fire and need outlet for it if we can - if not possible be "big" enough to handle the energy. Our goals we want to flow towards are slowing down so we are without the momentum the ego is craving. Be gentle on yourself. This is a test of your will power. You are human and emotions are normal.
The Dark Side :
Pressure will change and be more inside and hidden Mars in Sagittarius and aggravating other planets Saturn is retrograding backward very close together so stand off of will power + fear = CRAZY CRAZY CRAZY Sag is FIRE sign Saturn is restriction and shows our limits also male sign. Mars and Saturn are brothers. Restoration in FAITH after Challenges. SLOW DOWN this energy will gets us excited and passionate. Fixing and making things more solid is what is occurring. Have Faith and BELIEVE! This is JOY coming from fire thus faith! Root and Shadow material and past wombs will sit in our guts so belly laugh and vitality can bring you power. My belly is FEELING this!!
Things are confusing, you can manifest confusion and be holy war or Inner war and EXTREME ANGER. People may become Manic Fanatical (myself included if coming from ego and not VERY aware of Moon Cycling Energy within me) and compulsive and dangerous for things they can be aggressive dangerous and violent bc of a belief system. JUST BE AWARE. I found myself majorly off balance and confused. Approach your anger with ARTistic movement.
As above so below - planets and us - we are one.
On the12th of April this ride began begins it shifted April 17 2 months mars will move forward and reach this point again the July 29. months traveling 15% usually every couple of days covers a degree of the zodiac.
"Change of Pace" for Warrior Planet
Emotions can be irrational ,anger, frustration, depression,
Personality Anger Passion Fuel in engine to get things moving
Strategies plans and desires need ENERGY which is the MARS Role.
Ego and Will Power come into Play! Transformations will occur during this time - be aware cautious but allow OBSERVE. BE a SPIRIT WARRIOR and listen to your energy and vibration.
Mars is stationing can be the most true. We are moving forward we are driven and can bring challenging emotions.
Light Side : Sagittarius is Optimistic
Victory Winning thru faith! Tap into it! Find your power and do not let the passion and other peoples passions and frustration control you. Death in reverse. Transformation in May put it on your calendar the work will still need to be done but just be open to it. Keep your emotional instability in check please. INBALANCE and confusion is expected because there is alot of energy in motion which causes fear and confusion. Be aware of this and sharpen your skills and talent to develop and master your spirit to be present, allow the energy and inner war to rise and not be attached and DO NOT ALLOW YOURSELF to FLIP OUT! Do this with no judgement. Do NOT become aggressive or speak without tapping into it this awareness first. Simply be smart.
The Full Moon is a time of culmination and the promise of fulfillment of that which was started at the New Moon. It is an emotional time--a time of romance, fertilization, and relationships.
The Taurus-Scorpio polarity deals with the balance between all that is mine (Taurus) and all that is yours (Scorpio). It also emphasizes the concept of form (Taurus) versus transformation (Scorpio). While Taurus deals with matter, personal values, material goods, possessions, and security, Scorpio rules the destruction of form, shared possessions, change, and transformation. The Sun in Taurus wants us to be happy with the simple, tangible things in life, while the Scorpio Moon draws our attention to complexities, intangibles, and mysteries. Neglecting either end of the axis will surely backfire on us. Ideally, a balance should be found between the two energies, and this is what the Full Moon invites us to do.
This Full Moon is about emotional declarations. Something has been building inside of us, likely of an intimate nature, and now is the time when the energy of the cosmos fairly demands that we let it out. Over the next two weeks, we will discover what this declaration means for us. For now, we can't sit on our feelings. We need to express them. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between collecting and sharing.
With the Moon full and bright in the sky, symbolic "illumination" occurs in our own lives. However, these new feelings and revelations are emotional ones, as emotions burst forth into our consciousness. It's time to express ourselves, and to let things out of our systems. Of course, we might want to exercise some care while doing so, knowing that what is coming out of us is new and not particularly rational as yet. Full Moons are about exposing or illuminating issues that are already there, but that have not yet been dealt with.Read More

Why breaking myself down taught me the lesson I needed to succeed.
by Jenni Cornette
I am the first to admit I am a stubborn girl. I don't like anyone telling me what I can or cannot do, most of the time if someone tells me I can;t do something is when I do it. My mind and body will even speak to me "Jenni, why did you just say you can do that?" . My spirit will speak up and say ...Excuse me but why don't you know by now we can do anything?. This relationship is a double edged sword as it truly has gotten me to places that others could only dream of going in personal life and in my business.
I would like to share some wisdom I just discovered after 40 years of living and 20 years in the mind body beauty business. JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN DO IT, DOES NOT MEAN YOU SHOULD. I recently was slapped in the face with this lesson while realizing I was working too much and too hard to benefit others. My heart and soul were depleted. I was unable to focus, I stopped doing all my favorite things including working out, taking care of myself physically and mentally, spending quality time with my family. I was stuck in a space of doing everything for everyone in my business that I was actually going against my entire company vision ad mission. I wanted to help others that were unwilling to put in the same amount of effort or even half the effort I was (because let's face it - there is only one me) to help them to grow. I was nurturing all my seeds but not taking care of myself and when I finally after years realized this, it was like a slap in the face. I was resentful, hurt, disappointed and confused, I essentially was destroying my soul by handing out too many efforts and not ever getting anything in return. I was reading my children THE GIVING TREE one of my all time favorites and I had the biggest realization that I WAS THE GIVING TREE! Everyone had picked all my leaves, taken my fruit, cut my limbs and I was just a stump that was used to sit upon even when that is all I was after all the giving. Oh My! I am a stump! I have always had a soft and giving heart. I want to save the world, I root for the underdog, I enjoy picking people that are lost or at rock bottom climb to the top. My Daddy always says, "Jenni Lynn, you have got to start caring as much about yourself as you do everyone else".
It took me all these years to understand the wisdom he was giving to me, you have to put yourself first. You have to get back what you put into projects, you have to be balanced in who you work with and spend your time with to stay at your highest functioning creative entrepreneur. If you allow yourself to be surrounded by other business associates that don't have the same goals and passion, you all end up confused and off balance. Business friends, please understand to be mindful of who you allow into your tribe. Do not be in such a hurry to reach your goals that you allow less motivated people to weigh you down trying to sell them on the idea of hustling or motivated intentions. Save yourself the lesson by learning from me, surround yourself with like-minded, fair tribe members that inspire you as much as you inspire them. Care as much about yourself as you do everyone else, by only allowing those that will have your back 100% of the time in your circle.
Nurture yourself, make time for wellness and health, don't forget to eat foods that help support your lifestyle of hard work, exercise and spend time with your family and friends. Do not allow unbalanced work relations to steal your spirit and time. Have a massage and facial once a month, meditate, drink tea, take a bath. You deserve it! You will feel like the person you were meant to be, you will not be stuck in unhealthy think cycles, your work will feel rewarding and you will have the time to live in balance with work and life. Passion is NOT something you can teach someone. Learn to say this just doesn't feel balanced and love yourself by walking away from all those that don't lift you up and bring you joy. We are in the business of mind body beauty, don't forget your purpose.
