Coffee Shop Confessions

Here we are in one of the most magical months of the twelve month cycle. It’s a season of pumpkin pie consumption, alluring red coffee sleeves from Starbucks, and being thankful for gluttony.

Also, this New Moon energy is tied to the Full Moon energy that emanates from Taurus on November 17, which is conducive to…
