New Moon in Gemini- “I am Unwritten”

Moonbeams- New Thought Cycle Begins!

4 degrees in Gemini= Stability

New Moons in Gemini are usually times of strong mental activity where new ideas begin to percolate and mercurial activities become the focus. This New Moon is very unique in that it is virtually un-aspected. The skies are quiet during this lunation indicating that something is about to begin. It is in silence and solitude that a-ha moments come to us and inner reflection can take hold.

The planetary ruler of this moon is Mercury who is in the sign of Taurus. Mercury in Taurus becomes quieter and more reflective. Mercury is also sextile Neptune indicating the need to clear the mind of illusions through spiritual practices such as meditation, yoga, and tantras.

This New Moon is about clearing the mind in order to focus the mind. We each have a blank page before us waiting to be written on. It’s a new beginning with no ending so the possibilites are endless.

What’s your story going to be?

The Natasha Bedingfield song ‘Unwritten’ perfectly explains this New Moon in Gemini. Having a lot of air in her natal chart, Natasha’s lyrics capture the essence of Gemini……..suspension of thought in order to let spirit be the scribe.

I am unwritten, can’t read my mind, I’m undefined

I’m just beginning, the pen’s in my hand, ending unplanned

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

Oh, oh, oh

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines

We’ve been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can’t live that way

Staring at the blank page before you

Open up the dirty window

Let the sun illuminate the words that you could not find

Reaching for something in the distance

So close you can almost taste it

Release your inhibitions

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

Feel the rain on your skin

No one else can feel it for you

Only you can let it in

No one else, no one else

Can speak the words on your lips

Drench yourself in words unspoken

Live your life with arms wide open

Today is where your book begins

The rest is still unwritten

 

Full Moon in Scorpio May 10, 2017: Soul Detective

Date: May 10, 2017

Degree- 20 degrees

Moonbeams- what is really going on?

Like a detective on the hunt for clues to solve a murder mystery, our Full Moon in Scorpio is asking us to solve our crime of passion, that being our intuitive neglect. Scorpio is a penetrating sign that is able to uncover the “hidden” in everyday life. Ruled by Pluto, Scorpionic energy needs to transform and cleanse negativity in order to make room for its purest expression of intuition. As a water sign, Scorpio’s gift is that of psychic prowess. If Cancer is the healer, and Pisces is the Dreamer, than Scorpio is the mirror. Taurus is the polarity of Scorpio indicating that one’ needs are directly linked to one’s desires. Scorpio above any other sign wants to feel validated for who they truly are without having projections thrown onto them. They cannot help that they find themselves swimming the underground chambers of those they encounter, they cannot help the fact that what they “see” is what they project. In essence, Scorpio becomes the cracked mirror of the zodiac, unable to foster a deep sense of themselves without letting the murky waters below pull them under.

During this lunation the sun will be in Taurus lighting up the Taurus-Scorpio axis. How can we foster that deep sense of self from a place of purity as opposed to contamination? Let’s look to our cosmic clues during this full moon to help us solve this crime.

Mars Squaring Neptune

  • Inability to trust the flow of life, lack of self trust.

Pluto RX Trine Sun

  • Transformation

Mercury Conjunct Uranus

  • Exposure- truth coming out

Full Moon Trine Neptune

  • Strong intuition

Full Moon Trine Chiron

  • Healing the psyche

 

Solving the Crime

If we put these clues together, we can see that this full moon is providing us with the opportunity to repair our cracked mirrors through trusting ourselves and the journey we find ourselves on. If your projections are negative, look within yourself to purge what is no longer serving you. Scorpio is the regenerative sign, so rest assured that even if the waters pull you under, there is a cavern full of light that is beckoning to you…………….transformation.

Mystery Solved.

Case Closed.

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!

Set intentions around trusting your voice

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.
