New Moon in Taurus April 26, 2017: Let Them Eat Cake!

Moonbeams- nurture yourself, presence, mindfulness

New Moons in Taurus are always about taking time for yourself to indulge, by practicing mindfulness through being present in each and every moment. Venus the ruler of Taurus will still be in its shadow phase during this time conjunct Chiron in Pisces a 29 degrees signifying the cusp of great change with regards to self worth before moving back into Aries. Seeing as there is strong Neptunian energy during this NM, there is a certain mystical threshold that is being crossed, synchronicity’s, dreams, divination, déjà vu will all be very heightened. Saturn still at the galactic centre is representing a major shift in the space time continuum where the future, present, and past are colliding, creating out of body experiences for us. We don’t have any control over this, but what we do have is the fixed earth energy of Taurus which is teaching us a major lesson of being present and rooted in our nature. Coming back into our bodies is in itself a spiritual practice because our 5 senses allow us to stay connected to our earthy sensuous being, creating a fertile ground for new roots to take hold. The polarity of Taurus is Scorpio which is forcing us to let go of co-dependency- depending on spirit to bring us the answers we need. Everything we need to know is within ourselves. Self reliance is Taurean energy in its rawest form. If we are not grounded, it doesn’t matter how much information is being downloaded. We have a choice during this New Moon of whether we are going to embrace the lessons of Taurus’ ruler Venus from its retrograde cycle of loving ourselves by honouring our needs by listening to our inner voice (Taurus-throat), or are we going to get lost in the Piscean current? As Marie Antoinette (archetype of self indulgence)- who had her Venus in Scorpio said- “let them eat cake”, a.k.a, let us get real with ourselves by understanding that we have all the information we need going forward, so let’s make the most of it!

Full Moon in Libra April 11, 2017: The Pink Moon

“After all these years, I am still involved in the process of self-discovery. It’s better to explore life and make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.”- Sophia Loren

Moonbeams: Sudden realization, finding solutions, big choice to make

To keep this short and sweet, our full moon in Libra is about understanding how the choices we have been making up to this point have been hindering our progress. Everyone will experience some sort of an A-Ha moment that will illuminate the blockages and self sabotage that have been going on for a while now. This is an auspicious lunation for awakening. Happening on April 11, 11 is known as the gateway number, the stargate number, the number of light. We will have an opportunity to step into a new version of ourselves, bridging the gap between the higher realm and our reality. The T-Square will be activated with Jupiter, Uranus, Pluto. The Moon will be conjunct Jupiter opposite Uranus. Have we been too self sacrificing? Have we been betraying ourselves? Co-dependency might be highlighted with the theme of re-analyzing our values. This lunation is about integrity. What am I willing to change about myself in order to experience happiness and harmony?

It’s quite fitting this is known as a Pink Moon, because self love will propel us forward for the rest of the year. The secret is to send love to those parts of your life that have been experiencing harsh criticism and neglect, which is the house that the moon is transiting, at this time. This is a time of energetic diplomacy between your heart and mind. Don’t overthink anything, let your intuition (Jupiter) guide you to the answers you need (Libra).

Check to see where the moon will be transiting in your chart, the house it is in will show you where you will have an unexpected realization, its opposite house will show you where you have been blocking your self from experiencing joy and evolution.

The above quote from Sophia Loren who has her natal Jupiter in Libra and is the muse of this full moon, perfectly captures its essence. Libra at its core is all about self-discovery. Those parts of our lives that we have been suppressing or abusing are coming out to play. When we understand where we have been cheating ourselves, this is the code for living a full life. Life is all about learning, and when we continue learning about ourselves, we live our purpose. Life is all about striking that balance between teaching and learning, and it is those greatest lessons that will teach us the most.

New Moon in Aries Oracle

Anna Karenina is not simply a tale of aristocratic rendezvous, satin petticoat dresses, glitzy ballrooms, and lies and betrayals as cold as a Russian winter, rather, this is a story about self autonomy, the major lesson of our New Moon in Aries. Anna (Aries) refused to let the social codes of Russian aristocracy (Libra) rule her life, rather she followed the dictates of her heart to the extreme, purposely rebelling against society,  rather than upholding her responsibility as a mother. Anna needed to uphold her role as a mother to ensure the well being of her son, but Anna wanted to freely follow her passion, which involved having an affair. Anna’s misaligned values ultimately led to her downfall. Our New Moon in Aries conjunct Venus Rx in Aries is offering us an opportunity to check in with our hearts to ensure that we are not needing our wants, but wanting our needs. This is the alchemical code for self-autonomy, when we are able to forge ahead with our passions that are truly in alignment with the essence of who we are. Anna was insistent that love trumped duty, but it was her dutiful commitment to love rather than her love of duty that saw her fall from grace. What’s ironic is that there is something admirable about following your heart even when it’s looked down upon from the Libran mirror. When we embrace the pioneering spirit of Anna Karenina by being true to ourselves and values, only then will true love and passion prevail.

22 degrees- Master Builder

Moonbeams- reality check, seeing the bigger picture, processing

Our Full Moon in Virgo is a time of wrapping up the eclipses we experienced in February. This lunation will create a sinking into the soil kind of feeling whereby we will be looking back over the eclipse season and making sense of all that transpired. The Virgo full moon will be reflecting the light of the Pisces sun, teaching us wholeness and forgiveness. This is not the time to be hard on yourself or self-critical, this is the time for self-love and healing. Virgo is the processor (bowels) extracting the nutrients while releasing the toxins. Discerning what needs to stay and what needs to go. In order to integrate the eclipse changes, Virgo’s earth energy is telling us to look at the bigger picture and all the minute details. When we do this, Virgo’s mutable energy will allow us to relax into the process and to trust the divinity of time. Since Pisces is still playing a part during this lunation, use the Virgo ability of observation to pay attention to any signs, symbols, and omens that will be presenting themselves to you from the mystical Pisces realm.

Saturn in Sagittarius will be making a square to Mercury in Pisces, indicating the need to bring structure and stability to your ideas. It’s not enough to just dream it or think it, Virgo will be forcing analysis. Look to see where the moon will be transiting in your chart, because this will indicate where in the house, the divine is living and where the diamonds of the eclipses will be extracted.

Pluto in Capricorn will be trining the moon during this period helping us to transform, check to see where Pluto will be transiting as this will indicate how and where you can harness this power. The Capricorn energy will give you the stamina to do this.

Virgo will be extracting the stones and rocks from the eclipses and using its self love magic to refine them into the shiny bright diamonds they are.

The waxing crescent phase is all about being on a mission to manifestation. In this phase we feel a very strong pull towards making our dreams that were imagined during the New Moon phase, a reality. Amazonite assists in manifesting, and carnelian aids creativity.

New Moon in Pisces Solar Eclipse: Once Upon a Dream

Moonbeams: Releasing, letting go, active dreaming

South Node Solar Eclipse- past, known, familiar, where we get stuck, where we want to let go, where you want to change, release, moving away from

Welcome to our New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces! Wow, what a month February has been for us all. By now, you should have a pretty clear quartz crystal image of how you would like your life to look. But the problem with crystal images, is that they can be a little cloudy. To recap, our Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Leo earlier this month was conjunct the NN of the moon, which was all about understanding what it is that you want in your life, your destiny, your fate. Leo energy is all about passion and courage, so that vision you have for your life is one that involves listening to your heart and doing what you love. Maybe you’re an artist and the lunar eclipse finally made you admit that you want to pursue it more? Whatever it is that was illuminated, our current new moon solar eclipse is going to show you what you need to release and let go of in order to achieve what is that you want, because Pisces is the dissolver. It is important that you pull up a transit chart to see where this eclipse will be happening in your natal chart. This will show you what you need to let go of. For example, this eclipse will be happening in my 9th house, so I need to let go of old ways of thinking, expand my horizons, travel, and change my course of direction, go back to school etc..

Since this is a New Moon eclipse, it will be quite the dark period. New Moons are times of introspection and is actually when we are closest to source, closest to the cosmic womb. Working with your shadow side which has been pronounced leading up to this energy, due to everything being unsettled, is directly linked to where this eclipse is happening in your natacl chart. So for me, since this eclipse is happening in my 9th House, my shadow energy of this time is regretting going down a certain path, paying the price for a career decision, the 9th house is also the gateway, so I could also be dealing with being too restrictive in my thinking and not trusting the divine.  New Moons energy is all about symbols and archetypes. Pay attention to everything that is happening around you. Be on the look-out for serendipitous events, notice numbers, watch the birds, journal your dreams (Pisces) pay attention to what you are gravatating towards.

That same day we also have a conjunction between Mars and Uranus both in Aries, so there is going to be burst of energy to take action and emancipate yourself. The chains of the past will be breaking off. Neptune will also be in Pisces at 11 degrees, signalling an enlightened doorway that will present itself to you. The world is your oyster, but it may not be so clear as to what those possibilities are just yet. The only way to know is to dream. Our stellium in Pisces- with the Sun and Moon, Mercury, Neptune, and Chiron all there, dream big and journal, create a vision board, meditate, work on a creative project. What seems like fantasies and dreams is only your soul speaking to you.

With Mars and Uranus setting fire to the water, there is a need for you to just sit back and watch what happens. Eclipses are known to bring dramatic changes up to 6 months, indicating divine timing.

The dream is real.
