Travel Astrology with Everyday Medicine Woman

Susan Lipshutz does a turn as cosmic travel agent for Domino Magazine.

"We asked Susan A. Lipshutz LCSW, an integrative psychotherapist, astrologer, and founder of Everyday Medicine Woman, about each sign’s dream getaway. We’re all unique beings, so every person and their preferences are different, but we narrowed your next escape down by sun signs, which are linked with your birth date. It’s like your CEO and internal compass. With that said, there are other variabilities, like your moon and rising signs, worth considering as well."

NEW EPISODE: Liberating Mind Moon

A lunar forecast for January 25–February 23, 2020, by Susan Lipshutz featuring tips and practices for the month.

Break free from limited thinking."
~ Susan Lipshutz

In this episode of #moonwisepodcast, Susan shares insights about Aquarius and the first warming of the spring at Imbolc. She encourages us to check in with ourselves and befriend ourselves as we receive a potent flow of star energy into our fields. We can ask ourselves, “what feels right in the moment?”

Susan reminds us to think about how to open our mind and step into great leaps of innovation. It’s a great time to learn something new or perfect something you’re already learning. She says, “what does it feel like when your mind feels free?” She invites us to be aware of our breath and keep our feet on the ground.

Susan offers writing prompts, stones and ritual recommendations for working with the energy of the month. Tune in to hear about how we can break free from limited thinking and remember that anything is possible.

Here are some important dates:

  • January 24 — New Moon
  • February 2 — Imbolc
  • February 17 — Mercury Retrograde
  • February 9 — Full Moon in Leo

a very special weekend of re-mothering and remembering who we are together

Sunrise Springs Spa Resort, Sante Fe, NM

Venus was her nameVENUS RISING
Harnessing the Wisdom of the 2018 Venus Retrograde

October 5, 2018
5:45 pm–7:00 pm

Chill Meditation + Massage
222 W. Kinzie St., Chicago, IL
[ map ]

I am so excited to be offering this special workshop at Chill Meditation + Massage to launch a more collaborative understanding and harness the potential transformative elements available when Venus retrogrades for her 40 day cycle diving into the dark to retrieve her light. I have found these cycles to be very significant in my life and offer a way for women to experience and expand the limits of our inner feminine nature via the sign that Venus travels through when she takes us into the mythic journey. As she will be retrograding in the sign Scorpio, this cycle is sure to be deep, challenging, sensual and intense!

Please join us for a very special circle to explore the basics of the cycle via a brief overview, some experiential exercises and a guided journey. This workshop is for women (or those who identify as female ) only.

Please join us on July 27, 2018 for an evening of magic, wonder, healing and empowerment as we align with the longest Full Moon lunar eclipse of the century. While we will not be able to see this extraordinary event in North America, as women we understand that within each of us is a deep innate connection to the timeless wisdom of the Moon and her cycles. When the Earth creates a shadow over the moon it allows emotional patterns to be shed, shifted and redirected in harmony with our intuitive knowing and desire for liberation and growth. Total lunar eclipses are also referred to as Blood Moons as the moon shadow creates a rose hue to the glow cast in the night’s sky. This eclipse is connected to the New Moon Solar eclipse we had on January 31. 2018.

Women Gathering together at potent times creates a portal for shared initiation, reflection and collective healing. This gathering will include a brief sharing of the current Astro cycles and engagement in rich embodiment practices to move, clear and reset patterns sourced from our sacred feminine lunar nature. This is a south nodal Eclipse bringing something from a nineteen year cycle into completion. We need each other to witness, celebrate and consciously step into our destiny together. It is our time and we are ready!

Please reserve your spot right away as our last event surpassed our wildest dreams by the participation of so many amazingly brave beautiful generous women surrendering into the mystery of our possibility. Each women who pre-registers will also receive a special gift to bring our journey home.

Registration will close on JULY 24th! - ONLY 35 SPOTS AVAILABLE - sold out last time so register quick!
