Full Moon in Pisces: Rattlesnakes & Rituals

The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished~~

Cleanse – Begin

  • Meditate and focus on cleansing and starting anew
  • Go for a swim
  • Connect with your body in a physical way
  • Nourish yourself with healthy foods
  • Do something you have been scared to do (this opens up the receptors of your soul to be ready for something new)
  • Gift an item you love to someone else that will enjoy it 
  • Write a list of your intentions for the month (this does not need to be goal oriented)

I've become friends with some amazing people over the last year here in Austin. Two very special women I've become closely acquainted with agreed to let me photograph them last night after an enjoyable cocktail and conversation at East Side Showroom. Page and Rachael are fun, creative, curious, clever, and quirky – just how my favorite people tend to be.  Here is a taste of some of the gorgeous shots I was able to capture as they wear some of our favorite jewels from the East of the Sun showroom.

Much love,
