The 4 Types of Blue Moon

While my astrological style leans away from tradition, my dedication to the traditional meaning of Blue Moon has been, for the most part, unwavering. I feel like a small fairy or star being, or crab dies every time the usage of "blue moon" isn't understood or acknowledged. So far in 2018, it has been said we have had two blue moons, though technically we haven't had one yet and the last one wasn't since August 2013. The phrase "once in a blue moon" means a rare occurrence, though depending on the definition it can happen fairly frequently. This confusion is quite understandable as there are four types of Blue Moons (to my knowledge) with meanings that have evolved over the past century. 1

Sexual Healing :: Venus, Chiron, & Mercury

On this Chiron–Mercury-Venus conjunct day, I want to talk about my vagina. For many reasons, but also because it is a lovely day for communicating or writing (Mercury) about our wounds (Chiron) around sex or femininity (Venus). Sex has often been painful for me the last few years and I was somewhat a lot loss. I thought something was very wrong with me…I was cold or wasn’t open enough. I was closed off from my sexuality or needed to be more receptive or relaxed. Ultimately, what I was afraid to admit to myself was that I simply didn't want to have sex with those men in that moment. I realized I was just overwhelmed and my body was setting a boundary for me. It felt as if all the times I said

About Me

Hi, I'm Rebecca (aka Wild Witch of the West), a San Francisco-based archetypal astrologer and writer.  For more than a decade I've been deep diving in the astrology world helping clients connect more to their life purpose and their soul. Pre-astro geek and coming out of the "broom" closet, I received my Master's degree in Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness and wrote my thesis on the human connection to the stars. I offer individual and group astrology readings.


"Rebecca is amazing, hands down - you won't be disappointed in seeing her! She's warm, wise, witchy and intuitive, while also managing to be  practical and straightforward with a grounded energy that immediately puts you at ease.

I've never met anyone with such detailed knowledge of astrology, but the magic of Rebecca's readings is in combining astrological archetypal themes with a profound understanding of human nature. The themes she brought forward in my natal chart reading were spot on, and some nearly moved me to tears, long-buried hopes and dreams that I haven't dared to think about in quite some time.

I came away from our session with much more insight into myself, and some ideas that I'll be marinating on for months to come."
