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!

Tips

Set intentions around trusting your voice

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.

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.

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?

 

New Moon in Capricorn: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough!

Date- December 29, 2016

Time-1:53am

Moonbeams- helplessness, confidence, dreams, perseverance

There is a heaviness associated with this New Moon. While we want to set our new year’s intentions, before we can, Mercury RX is forcing us to review these past 12 months before we plant the seeds. Saturn has been squaring Chiron which can make many of us feel depressed, low, and sad about our current situations. Feelings of inadequacy or helplessness can impede our progress. However, Moon sextile Mars is giving us a large hug, encouraging us to forge ahead, and to have the self confidence knowing that we can achieve our heart’s desires. Are you afraid of getting hurt? Are you afraid of failing? If so, take advantage of Saturn’s stable energies to refocus and get back on track. The Moon is also trining the Virgo North Node, suggesting that the devil is in the details. Only when you start weeding out those inhibiting feelings can you truly move ahead. A sextile to Neptune is helping to turn your dreams into reality, but not without work and commitment. Ultimately, this New Moon is about being grateful for where you are now, looking at your weakness objectively and as opportunities for growth. Uranus will be going direct exactly 3 hours after the New Moon squaring Pluto, signifying change and transformation. Have faith, and set your intentions with a plan on how you want to achieve them. Remember, the symbol for Capricorn is the mountain goat, so slowly but surely you will make your way up the mountain. Ain’t no mountain high enough!

New Moon in Libra: Black Beauty

Date: September 30/October 1

Time: 1:11am Universal Time, 8:11am Eastern Time

Moonbeams: New beginnings, transformation, love, self-worth, shadows

Welcome to our first new moon after the eclipses, which is brand new energy magnified. This is also the second new moon of September if you are in the Americas, which is known as a Black Moon.

This new moon is happening at 8:11am Eastern Time and 1:11am Universal time, on September 30 in the Americas, and October 1 everywhere else. The energy of October will also be coming into play which is the 10th month of the year which reduces to 1…………..look at all those ones!

This new moon is going to see the beginning of something new, an entirely new you, the birth of something new, especially in terms of love. This really won’t be fully seen and experienced until our Full Moon in Libra happening next year, around April 11. But this doesn’t mean that parts of the new you will be hidden. Quite the opposite actually. The sun and moon are together in Libra at 8 degrees which is all about saying goodbye to what is no longer serving you, but in order to that, you must first confront the shadows.

Our Black Moon is associated with the goddess Demeter. Demeter is the goddess of harvest, whose rage at having her daughter Persephone kidnapped by Hades is the representation of fall and winter when growth dies. The rebirth is when Persephone is reunited with her Mother in the Spring. We must be careful during this moon to be extra careful about our thoughts. They co-create our reality. Yes, there is a divine plan for each of us, but our free will comes to down to our thinking patterns.Whatever you want to create in terms of all things Libra & Venus- beauty, love, art, creative self-expression, now is the time to do some visualization and intention setting around those themes. Imagine you have already acquired those things. Embrace that energy! Neptune is trine Venus which is all about spiritualizing love. When you think about soul mates, or spiritual self expression, what does that look like for you? Jupiter is square Mars in Capricorn, so set realistic goals for yourself, without over-committing, find the balance. As well, our moon is conjunct Jupiter, so the possibilities are endless, now is the time to dream big!

We will come to see what is truly holding us back during this lunation as Libra forces us to look our shadows in the eye. A really simple way to do this, is to think back to January when you set those intentions for 2016, how have they been coming along? 

This is only  way we can plant the seeds for our spring bloom during this season of harvesting.
