ADRIANNE BLANKS
Adrianne Blanks is a singer, voice teacher, candle maker, and Moon lover. Her affinity for the Moon began while listening to a sustainability podcast when a guest came on to speak to how the phases of the Moon affect us. Adrianne came to understand that just as we can garden with the lunar phases, so can we plant our seeds of intention.

The Moon is the closest celestial body to the the Earth. She controls the tides, and we are mostly made of water, so she has a great pull over us. We can learn to work in synergy with the Moon in order to fulfill our greatest desires.
