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?

Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius- August 7, 2017: The Invention of You

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

This is the story of an orphaned boy who lives in a Paris train station repairing the clocks. All he has is an Automaton his father left him before he perished in a fire. Hugo believes the Automaton (Aquarius) contains a message from his father but is missing a heart shaped key in order to unlock the message. Hugo is reclusive (Aquarius) and has no friends, but one day a chance meeting with a girl at the train station who happens to be wearing a heart (Leo) shaped key necklace sets them off on adventure to unlock the Automaton (Aquarius). Once the Automaton (Aquarius) is unlocked, it reveals an image of a scene from a film called ‘A Trip to the Moon’ (Eclipse). I won’t spoil the rest of the story, but I feel it is the perfect representation of this Aquarius Lunar Eclipse. Connecting to with others might very well be the key to the answers you seek. Bringing 3 unconnected parts of yourself together Unconscious (Moon) Practical (Earth) Higher Self (Sun) to create a master version of yourself is the greatest invention of all time. 

 

Things are coming to a tail end (South Node) so to speak from the February eclipses. Eclipses are times of dramatic completions, and are vortices of manifestation.

A Lunar Eclipse occurs when the Earth passes between the Moon and Sun casting an earthly shadow on the Moon. The Moon represents our emotions, subversive nature, our unconscious, our happiness, and our incarnation imprint. When the Earth’s shadow eclipses the Moon- what we feel becomes grounded into practical reality. We take all of those elusive Moony qualities and turn them into the brick and mortar of our life.

The Full Moon Eclipse is occurring in Aquarius which rules the 11th house. The 11th house is connected to our peers, social groups, hopes, wishes, and our tribe. We will all be faced with the truth of whether we are sacrificing our identity to fit in, or are we soooo different that we are losing out on opportunities to connect? Aquarius rules all that is different, innovative, unique, inventive, surprises, and thoughtful. The negative expressions are detachment and irresponsibility. A key lesson to learn from the Eclipse is let go (South Node) of that which is inhibiting your progress (Aquarius) and to embrace that which will allow you to be YOU. The Lunar Eclipse is going to show you the full potential of your interactions with others- regardless of where this Eclipse is happening in your natal chart. 

Aspects:

Jupiter in Libra which is all about meaningful connections will be trine this Eclipse suggesting that there is a need to widen your social interactions.

Mars in Leo Conjunct Sun in Leo- need to stand out. Remember- when you are yourself, everyone notices you!

New Moon in Leo July 23, 2017: Your Kingdom Awaits

Date: July 23, 2017

Moonbeams: Fire! Fire! Fire!

Degree- 0 Degrees of Leo

Aspects: Sun and Moon Conjunct Mars in Leo Square Uranus in Fire

The overall theme of this NM is self empowerment. Fire energy is activating, spontaneous, unpredictable, and fast. Just take a look at all of the fire energy present at this time.

Sun in Leo= Fire

Moon in Leo= Fire

Mars in Leo= Fire + Fire

Uranus in Aries= Fire

Mercury in Leo= Fire

The big theme of 2017 has been de-conditioning- letting go of the known in order to build your new foundation. But this has required a lot of soul searching, releasing, and re-evaluating. It has been an incredibly intense inner process. Fire energy on the other hand burns right to the heart (Leo) of the matter. It doesn’t require psycho-analysis or deep release work. All Leo wants you to do is to step into your Kingdom or Queendom by trusting the spontaneity of this time which manifests as instant presence.  Major changes are unfolding over the next weeks through activating passionate responses from you. There’s no more dillying dallying around things or needing to feel them out before you decide to act. Trust your initial responses at this time as 0 degrees of Leo marks an important creation point. Change can only occur when you yourself change.

Emotions will go unchecked which are a necessary part of change. This does not mean that you can be reckless or irresponsible with how you choose to react, rather the highest expression of Leo is inner truth. Observe your emotions from a place of neutrality in order for them to move through you and set fire to whatever needs to be activated at this time.

There’s no room for self pity or tears during these next 2 weeks. It’s time to strengthen your will, to stoke the fires of your soul by acting from a place of passion, as this is your truth, this is who you ARE without the illusory waters, hardened earth, or analytical air. Fire is uncontainable, it both destroys and creates at the same time, much like 2017 has been contradictory at times for us all.

Leo is connected to royalty because Kings amd Queens answer to nobody. They command presence through their stoic presentation. It’s time to come out of the shadows and embrace the crown. Your kingdom within awaits you.

Growing a Moon Garden

Whether you’re a witch, pagan, mystic, selenophile, or horticulturist, everyone should grow a moon garden. Moon gardens are gardens that bloom at night, where they cast a silvery glow in the darkness and release a fragrant aroma in your garden.

You can plant them in the shape of a crescent moon or circular like the full moon so as to mimic the luminary in the sky. You could also plant a few different gardens in the shape of the entire moon phase…….as above so below.

To enjoy these plants during the day, it’s best to plant some silver or white flowers throughout your garden as well, which will create a lunar effect during the day. Your moon flowers can be used for talismans, teas, baths, and incense.

Here are some common night blooming plants:

Moonflower

Evening Primrose

Night Phlox

Evening Stock

Angels Trumpet

Night Gladiolus

Lunar Herbs:

Dusty Millers

Silver Thyme

Lamb’s Ears

Mugwort

Silver Sage

 

 

 

 

New Moon in Cancer June 23, 2017: The Sandcastle

Time- 3:31 am UT- June 24

10:31pm ET

7:31 PDT

Moonbeams- Co-creation

The mermaid came ashore and directed the architects of the ocean to sculpt her sandcastle. The waves moulded and shaped her home into the home of her dreams. The supermoon heartbeat pulled the tides higher and higher, while Jupiter in Libra put down her anchor. If Cancer rules the past, then the sepia toned sand became the sands of time, reminding the mermaid that every second counts. Her sandcastle was her art of memory. Every room was filled with objects of importance, feelings of love, and fantasies of grandeur. Walking through each room pulled her deeper into herself, into the cavern of her soul. She defended her decision to create this gaudy granular mansion on the shore, because it was her creation. She had birthed it using the waters of the ocean of her consciousness. It was home.

The New Moon in Cancer features a stellium in Cancer- Sun, Moon, Mercury, and Mars. We are birthing something new, something from deep within ourselves. The stellium in Cancer is trine Neptune in Pisces- signifying dreams becoming reality. A square to Jupiter in Libra is asking us to practice non-attachment- to not fixate on our dreams, and to not get hardened by the truth of our reality. Coming into alignment with both, is the essence of creation. When a woman gives birth, both her and her child and working in tandem to ensure the safe and successful arrival of the baby. Manifestation works the same way, like the tides of the ocean, there is always a push and a pull, and with this New Moon being a Supermoon, we will feel extra passionate about creating something new for ourselves. The waters of our consciousness will be sculpting the new reality, and we can aid this process through our creativity and meditation. Cancer rules the passage of time and we are being called to utilize every precious moment to its full advantage. Forgiving those who may have wronged us, letting go of things that are interfering with our self trust, and dreaming big so as to co-create something wonderful. A new cycle is beginning, and the gestation period is starting today and will complete at the Spring Equinox of 2018. We are most comfortable when we are at home, wherever that may be, and like a mermaid who creates a sandcastle of her dreams, we too are creating our own sandcastles, with every wish, dream, and hope being a grain of sand. And it is that combination that makes it withstand the crashing waves of uncertainty.

Full Moon in Sagittarius June 9, 2017: The Box

Date- June 9, 2017

Degree- 18 degrees

Moonbeams- It’s time to move on……

“Instead of thinking outside of the box, get rid of the box”– Deepak Chopra

Welcome to our Full Moon in Sagittarius. The Full Moon will be conjunct Saturn which is all about doing research to figure out what we’re doing and not doing correctly. Saturn polishes whatever it touches, so we are being asked to work hard in order to see the desired results. Saturn is absorbing much of the emotional essence of this moon, so it’s important to have realistic goals. A great question to ask yourself at this time is “Am I where I’m supposed to be?” The ninth house ruler in Astrology is Sagittarius which rules travel and philosophy among other things- so this is encouraging us to step outside of our comfort zones and known territories. Saturn- the old time God- is letting us know that time is an illusion- everything is always in a constant state of change, so while this lunation will be heavy, know that you are exactly where you are meant to be. The mutable moon is also reminding us that while we feel like we’re in a slump- things are about to become progressively better.

The Full Moon will also be trine Uranus & Eris in Aries so a definite shock to the system will be in store. It’s time to wake up and face the reality (Saturn) of your current situation.

The Full Moon will also be square Neptune which indicates an existential crisis might occur. Use creativity to help your situation. There is a great need to be honest with your higher self- if need be, call upon your guides for help. Now is not the time to get swept away by feelings of inertia. Use the intuitive and imaginative energies of Neptune to think outside of the box.

Saturn is almost always depicted as an old man with a long grey beard holding a scythe. He is the timekeeper- the grim reaper who appears when it’s “time” for a journey to end (a.k.a- Saturn Returns). This Full Moon is a grandfather clock made out of a box- Sagittarius & Neptune are going to allow us to tear open the box we have locked ourselves in and experience a change of scenery…….even if that scenery is merely in our heads (Gemini Sun).

2017 has been tough for many of us. We all entered this 1 universal year with the hopes of experiencing so many wonderful new things, but in order to welcome in the new, we must first let go of the old. 2016 is when the “old” became obvious to us. This year we have the task of literally clearing out of all of the old.  We might have packed away everything that is no longer serving us, but we now have to confront the new. If you want to experience change, then stop hoarding boxes filled with old outdated ideas and recycle them into something positive and inspiring.

The Full Moon in Sagittarius will help us to see outside of these cardboard prisons while the Saturn conjunction will be offering us a pair of box cutters.

Are you ready for change?

New Moon in Aquarius: It’s a New Dawn

Date: January 27, 28

Time: 4:07pm Eastern Time, January 28- 12:07am Universal Time

Moonbeams- originality, transformation, breakthroughs

Our first lunation of 2017 happens in the awakening sign of Aquarius at 8 degrees.The theme of these past 9 years have been about this is who I was and this is who I am. These next 9 years will be about, this is who I am, and this is where I am going.

8 is the number of manifestation and infinity, meaning the changes that occur now will have a long lasting effect. Aquarius energy is intellectual, mystical, free, and unique, and coupled with the manifestation power of 8, be prepared to witness some major changes that will unfold over the course of this year. We started of the new year and December 31st with Uranus energy, so expect the awakenings of Aquarius to be expedited due to the quickening energy of Uranus. January 27 marks the 13th lunar moon according to Chinese Astrology which sees the year of the fire rooster take hold. The fire energy of the rooster coincides with all of the trines or (stargates as I like to refer to them) which are all happening in the fire signs this year. Get ready for rapid changes, breakthroughs all year long.

On this day there is also a square happening between Venus in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. This suggests that a total restructuring is needed in order for us to truly experience change. A colliding of the dream world with the harsh reality will be felt, but this is to ensure that you have a crystal quartz clear image of where you are headed. Aquarius encourages us to shift our perspectives, to look up to the cosmic skies of wonder and look at yourself from a bird’s eye view. I compare this energy to the Tower and Chariot of the Tarot. Old ways of thinking are being demolished in order for us to step into the bubblegum pink energy of ascension and endless possibilities, that is Aquarius.

We are all experiencing some major shifts happening right now, that is allowing us to move into a larger realm of consciousness. Chances are, you have already changed your mind regarding something that you had your heart set on. The Venus-Saturn square forces you to rethink and face the harsh reality of your current situation. But with a new moon in Aquarius, this is making sure that you are being true to yourself and purpose, that you emancipate yourself from your restrictions and falsehoods. A new dawn is emerging, so will you be the first one up like the Rooster, ready to take on the day’s adventures, or will you be sleeping away in your safe dream world?
