Full Moon in Cancer January 1st 2018: Lunar Lux

The Full Moon occurring on the first day of the new year on a Monday (Moonday)  is a powerful message from the Queen of the Night. 2018 is a year of huge emotional capacity. What do I mean? Well, the full moon represents completion, consolidation, fullness, and light. When it falls on the first day of a new material cycle, we can expect that the things Cancer rules will be maximizing its “fullest” potential this year. That means that you will be much more in tune with your feelings and your emotional security will be the foundation of everything you experience this year.

The house that Cancer rules in your chart and any planets that you have in Cancer show you where you require more emotional maturity. Emotional maturity is being able to understand and manage your emotions. It enables you to create the life you desire on your own terms. You don’t self sacrifice or play the victim (typical Cancerian traits) by putting your needs on the back-burner. No, 2018 will be your time to share your unique moonglow with the world. We are also entering an 11/2 universal year which is all about owning your authenticity and learning how to share it with others. Ironically, the number 2 relates to the Moon. In order for us to  own our authenticity, we must first get comfortable with the idea of confronting and sitting in our emotions- no matter how unpleasant they might be. The Moon is one of the fastest moving planets as it spends approx 2.5 days in each Astrology sign. Take this as a cue that while you may feel that you are on an emotional rollarcoaster this year, your ability to transmute your emotions into healthy positive changes will be heightened.

The Full Moon

On the day of the Full Moon we will have a grand trine with Jupiter, Mars, and Neptune- all emotional planets, which will help us to act on our feelings very easily. Mars will also be squaring the lunar nodes indicating that how we behave and respond to situations during the next two weeks will have some heavy duty karmic implications. The degree of the moon is 11, which is also the universal year we are entering in 2018. Once again the message is clear- You can get to know yourself better through your emotions. Master your emotions.

We can set material resolutions on the day of the Full Moon that has to do with how we wish to feel this year. This would be a great day to choose your power word for 2018. You may not begin to embody your power word until the Spring Equinox which is the energetic new year, and you will not see great spiritual changes until August 19 which is the spiritual new year.

Uranus stations direct on January 2nd, a day after this lunation, making it easy for us to act swiftly on our emotions. Look to see where Aries falls in your Astrology chart as this shows you the area where you can expect some breakthroughs.

The Full Moon will be a Super Moon meaning it will be closer to Earth. If you can, step outside and bathe yourself in its restorative moonbeams. Lunar light is believed to be more powerful than Solar light, as the Moon rules over both our mind and heart. When both are in sync, we have have the formula for manifestation.

Mama Moon

The Full Moon in Cancer wants us to be more Motherly to ourselves. Nurture yourself, be receptive and open to energies and support, and be the fierce and empowered person you are.

2018 is the Year of the Moon. Stay tuned, because I will be blogging about this important year in the coming days.

New Moon in Sagittarius: The Vision Quest Completed

Date: Monday December 18

Moonbeams: Visions Realized, Reality Checks, Burdens Lifted

The New Moon in Sagittarius is not going to feel like your classic New Moon. Saturn is exiting Sagittarius at the time we have this New Moon. Saturn is a dense slow moving energy so wherever he leaves, you will feel a great weight lifted off of your shoulders. You won’t necessarily experience new beginnings in the Sagittarius ruled area of your life, but you will reap the rewards of the restructuring that has been going on here during these past two years. We have an ending and a beginning happening simultaneously.

Sagittarius is a sign that is associated with our higher perspective, so expect the New Moon to give you that major reality check that has been in the works since 2016.

We will have the Sun, Moon, Mercury RX, and Venus in Sag, so the emphasis on your Sag ruled area/house will be forcing you to ponder the lessons you’ve learned here.

Reach for the stars and accept your reality for as it is. Your vision quest in Sagittarius has come to an end. Saturn in Capricorn will help you to collect your trophies and receive your medals of honour.

 

 

New Moon in Scorpio- November 18- The Thief in the Night

The New Moon in Scorpio will feel quite dense compared to other New Moons. We have 4 planets in Scorpio- Sun, Moon, Venus, & Jupiter. We can see that a heaviness is present that is dragging us deep into the archetype of Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of transformation and deep healing. Where ever Scorpio falls in your chart, is the area that will see these themes coming into play.

Uranus will be aspecting the New Moon forcing you to remove the thief in the night that is consuming you. What is draining your energy? The Scorpio waters will be nourishing those parts of your life that need a break through.

Mars square Pluto- don’t be too aggressive in your dealings with others

 

 

New Moon in Libra October 19, 2017- That’s Where My Demons Lie

 

Date: Thursday, October 19, 2017

Moonbeams: Authenticity & Inner-demons

The New Moon finds the Sun and Moon both in the sign of Libra. Libra represents the cosmic mirror- where we project ourselves onto others- the good, the bad, and the ugly. This NM will  show us how we have been unbalanced in our dealings with others. Have we been too self-sacrificing, or too self-indulgent? Either way, there are issues surrounding authenticity present at this lunation.

Uranus making an opposition to the New Moon is forcing us to approach our imbalances in a new way. We can do this by embracing our differences and respecting those who disagree with our choices.

The New Moon making a quincunx to the wounded healer Chiron suggests our own mirrors have become very distorted. The blinders are coming off. Perhaps we won’t like what we actually see, but Chiron is letting us know that we might have to confront old issues and pains around suppressing our true nature.

Jupiter and Mercury both being conjunct in Scorpio is helping us to bring back our power (Jupiter) by first bringing to the surface secrets buried deep within and processing them through logic (Mercury). Healing can only occur when we first clean up sewer (Scorpio) so to speak.

We can clearly see the themes from this NM in the media today. Seedy exposes around power, sexual abuse, and secrets- Harvey Weinstein being the prime example.

The major lesson the New Moon in Libra will offer us is to speak and live our truth to induce deep rooted healing. Venus the ruler of this moon is unaspected meaning her energies are free to do as they wish. Approach everything from a place of love as opposed to hate to help release your own inner demons. This will allow you to get back into your body and frequency without having uninvited visitors lurking in your underworld.

The song ‘Demons’ by Imagine Dragons perfectly captures the essence of this lunation. It’s about warning a significant other (Libra) about your demons. For so long things and feelings of ours were treated like demons- something evil and powerful. Guess what? Now as a collective we are experiencing a major exorcising of all of humanity’s demons.

 

 

 

 

Full Moon in Aries October 5, 2017: Putting Out the Flames

Moonbeams

Moon in Aries opposite Sun in Libra- you vs me

Moon opposite Mercury- feelings are not being communicated

Pluto Square Moon- Control and change is needed, but we feel nervous about having to make a change

Mars in Virgo conjunct Venus in Virgo- small details is what is needed now, gentle energy

Mars trine Pluto- taking small practical steps is the way to handle all of this fire

Mars square Saturn- we want the small steps to make fast changes, but Saturn is slowing us down with his methodology

Mars opposite Neptune- just because you can’t see it, doesn’t mean there isn’t work going on behind the scenes

 

A full moon in Aries always sets off fire alarms in the cosmos. Action for the sake of action is meaningless until inspiration is thrown into the mix. I get the feeling that for the past couple of months, on an individual level, we have been robotically living, meaning that our lives have been hectic and busy but missing joy and heartfelt ambition. When we are in the season of Libra, it becomes very obvious where we have been giving too much of ourselves at the expense of our own well-being. The Full Moon in Aries is going to push us to take small practical steps to change our lives. With the moon opposing Neptune this can be as simple as saying “no” or standing up for yourself. It is during fiery times that we come to appreciate the little things in life. It’s time to take a break and pay attention to whether your hectic lifestyle is for selfish reasons and if you are offsetting this by taking the time to help others? Venus in Virgo conjunct Mars in Virgo shows the need to want to express loving sentiments to others, and we must remember that when we serve others we are indirectly serving ourselves. The most important thing to keep in mind during this lunation is have you been self-serving or self-sacrificing lately? And is there a difference between the two?

New Moon in Virgo September 20, 2017: Solitary Witch

Date: Wednesday September 20, 2017

Moonbeams: Witchery & Surrending

Our New Moon in Virgo features 5 planets in Virgo with some auspicious configurations for magic.

Virgo is the sign of the Virgin which is all about being one with one’s self, and not needing anyone to define you. Virgo is a very solitary sign because it spends a great deal of time alone putting up walls of reserve and solitude in order to examine the divine details from a place of quietude. This encapsulates Virgo in a pristine crystalline structure that allows Virgo to view every situation from a place of clarity and reserve. Mercury, the ruler of Virgo is still conjunct Mars meaning that even Virgo’s are having trouble trusting information coming through at this time. Thought processes have quickened, but at the expense of intuition which is the cleaning agent of Virgo. Mars opposite Neptune is distorting our dreams and wishes, so the energy is very messy and in Virgo season, this is the equivalent to hell breaking loose. Saturn squaring the New Moon is putting pressure on the New Moon to clean up this confusing mess and the Moon is freaking out blaming itself for this kerfuffle.

If we go back to the basic archetype of Virgo, it’s one of solitude and quietude. Releasing blame and self critical behaviour is the best “cleaning agent” at this time. Mercury opposite Neptune is allowing us to weave spells of magic, to use affirmations and mantras to achieve the desired results. Having a heart to heart conversation with your guides and the universe will alleviate the pressures from Mercury and Saturn at this time.

It’s time to prune your broomsticks, get out your grimoires, and polish your crystals. The greatest lesson this New Moon has to offer us is that we are not the Be All and End All. There is no shame in asking the universe for help or calling upon higher forces for assistance. Most of us have been going through some major transformations this last little while do to the eclipses, and as a result we have found that we have been putting extreme pressures upon ourselves in order to get through the changes we have been experiencing. Part of the lesson of the Mercury Mars conjunction has been about releasing control. This is one of the hardest things for Virgo to accomplish, but surrendering control by calling upon higher forces is what will allow you to see the divine in the details as opposed to just a messy situation. We cannot forget that Virgo is a Mutable Earth sign which means that changes we co-create now will have a long lasting effect. This is why Virgo is the sign of the Witch. A witch is only a person who in her centredness invokes spirit to create change.  What a better time for magic?

 

 

 

 

Full Moon in Pisces September 6, 2017: A Crystal Ball

Date: September 6, 2017

Moonbeams: Cosmic Clarity, Come gaze into my crystal ball……..

That which becomes real looking through a crystalline sphere swirling with cosmic stardust clouds using the Virgo tools of analysis to pick apart your vision which is already perfection.  We are all still reeling from the effects of the August Eclipses which many will feel up to 6 months. Every year we have an important lunation in Pisces in September to soften the rational energies of Virgo. Virgo processes all that we cannot see, and with its polarity being Pisces- that which we cannot see is actually crystal clear at this time.

Crystalline Knowledge of You

The Full Moon in Pisces will be conjunct Neptune adding a dreamy fog to this starry night. Active dreaming will be the easiest way to make it through the thick of the fog. Dreams might be coming true for you, psychic readings will be extremely accurate, intuitive abilities will be on point. What you are seeing at this time is your reality re-imagined through a Piscean crystal lense. The language of the universe are codes and symbols and what better time to decode all of these message than through some heavy Virgo energy this month. We must keep in mind that the ruler of Virgo- Mercury will be stationing direct in Virgo a day or so before the Full Moon and will be conjunct Mars for most of the month. Your processing abilities will be on fire, but in order to keep your mechanic self in check you must remember that the intuitive and fantastical downloads you are receiving at this time are already perfected. There’s no need to pick apart every little detail and try to make sense of what you are seeing and feeling. The energies at this Full Moon are simply fragments of knowledge about yourself that are appearing from a place of purity (Virgo) after the energetic portals we entered during the eclipses.  The Full Moon in Pisces is a crystal ball that contains your iridescent self and future. What will you see?
