CANCER FULL MOON 2022
The first full moon of 2022 is at 12:48 EST on 17 January at 27 degrees Cancer.
The powerful Cardinal Cancer (Moon) Capricorn (Sun) axis likes to begin things.
Begin or begin again.
We have Mercury newly retrograde at 9 degrees Aquarius. We are going to visit with our subconscious, with our memories, with our old journals and vision boards to see what needs to be seen as new.
The person who thought those thoughts and dreamed those dreams and glued those vision boards is the same one looking at them today.
I often address the me in my past and need to address that future me, too.
I appreciate the me who has provided for me and cared for me. I talk to that me and thank that me.
This is fitting, now, as Venus – the valuer, the lover, the friend, the one who relates, the one that puts together previously unrelated pieces…
is retrograde at 13 Capricorn.
As Capricorn rules time, and Venus is retrograde, it is a perfect moment, at this full Moon, to time travel.
We can imagine the us who is now visiting a friend when we were both 15 or 26.
We can cry or laugh again. We can sit in a different chair in the restaurant – we can view the scene from a now perspective. We can do it as a daydream if the word meditation is too ponderous.
We can do the same adventure into the future and imagine where we want to lounge, or dance or paint or have dinner.
Who is there? How does it smell? What are we wearing? Is it hot? Is there shade? Do You feel relaxed? Excited?
Time travel at this full Moon is encouraged and can be encouraging.
There is a watery tint with this axis. Capricorn has a serpent’s tail as it is well acquainted with the depths of human, spiritual and timely experience.
We can find our way to other times through evocative triggers: songs, poems, tv shows, memories and wishes.
Cancer is ruled by the Moon. The Crab is as happy on the ocean floor as it is scampering around the beach under the moonlight.
We intuitively feel our place on the earth plane. At this full Moon we can feel into the time that will best inform us of who we are, what we want and how we would like to proceed.
Crabs don’t move in a straight line. The go back and forth. They go side to side. They scoot behind a rock to get a safer, hidden perspective.
And speaking of hidden/revelatory views, the full Moon is opposing Pluto conjunct the Sun in Capricorn.
We can reach into the power and personal authority that is our birth right, the power that is as close as our own heart. We can tune in, through the heart, the mind , the intuition, and the power of the blood that courses through the veins, pulled by the moon. We can tune in to our own vibration, our own blueprint for who and what a d how we want to be, do, interact and have in this life.
We hold the pearl in the palm of our hand that glows just for us. It has insight just for us, tailor-made just for us as a touchstone, signpost, and guide.
The full Moon illuminates, it magnetizes. It helps us to recognize, to intuit, to elaborate, the way to the within and to the without are made more clear.
May the full Cancer Moon bring the energy to the true Home inside, where the hearth fire is always warm, -always welcoming, always comforting.
CAPRICORN NEW MOON 2022
Happy New Moon. Happy New Year.
The first new Moon of the year is at 12 Capricorn on 2 January 2022 1:33 PM EST.
Capricorn is a great lead in to every new year as it rules time.
New Year energy signals a reset. It can signal a look at things we feel it’s time to do – or at least to consider.
Saturn-ruled Capricorn also rules the structure of things and events – our day, our menu, the layout of our home. The New Year energy lends itself to the consideration of the structure of our hours and days. It then may call us to focus on how we might build/rebuild certain areas of our life. At this New Moon Mercury and Saturn, are in Aquarius making way for some real eureka moments.
Jupiter, the optimistic expander, is at powerful 0 degrees of Pisces- asking us to attend to the dreams of our minds, our hearts, and our Spirits.
If you know what house Capricorn inhabits in your chart, that can add more insight to what areas come up for consideration every year around this time.
Venus is retrograde in Capricorn until January 29th. Venus is all about how we relate, care, value and love. Capricorn, among other things, is all about structure, time and rules. Retrograde cycles invites us to revisit, review, reflect, reconsider, reevaluate, etc, etc.
The New Year is a a time for intention setting. It is a time for releasing of the old and outmoded and allowing breathing space to invite the new.
It seems that the first weeks of the 2022 can be a time to look at our relationships of all kinds. We don’t have to go crazy jettisoning everything and going with the whole “New Year, New Me” thing. How about “New Year, New Toothbrush…” It’s achievable, and it is good self care. It can be rewarding to find places where we can do micro adjustments by keeping changes gentle and doable.
Back to our New Moon Capricorn, Venus retrograde. The first relationship is the relationship with the self. We can focus on how we value ourselves. We can think about what has been working in the last couple of years since our daily lives and routines have probably shifted quite a bit since 2020.
Which of the new habits whether they be by circumstance or by choice — have been beneficial and even enjoyable?
I know many people have found that having a built-in excuse to say no to social invitations has been a godsend.
What else makes us feel good, healthy, relaxed, motivated, inspired?
How about a New Year wish list? It’s a bit more fun and open-ended than a resolution.
What do you want to do, to try, to attract in 2022?
Pondering and writing these things down while dreaming end envisioning the coming days weeks and months can all be fun at this time.
Pulling some cards or doing a meditation to invite seen and unseen energetic helpers for the year can also be affirming at this time. Keep an eye out for which animals and plants catch your eye and look up their divine meaning on the Internet.
See if their companionship is welcome. A retrograde Venus cycle is a great time to develop the relationship with the higher self and with guardians, angels, guides and teachers.
Do what you like if you aren’t sure about what you love. It isn’t always recommended to fret about “Purpose” or “Meaning.”
How about going toward things, activities, and people that make us feel good.
How about we join with the thoughts and experiences in life that give us a lift, that bring interesting new energy, that smell, and feel and taste a bit different, a little bit inviting, exciting, inspiring and, hey, even hopeful?!?
Surely the last two years have affected our relationships of all kinds. We have seen what is valued, valuable. We have experienced shifts and changes.
It is okay to let some routines, habits, things, and relationships go with live and gratitude.
During a Venus retrograde cycle we feel the strength of our inner authority emboldening us to realign with who we are now, what we want now and how we want to live now. Life is about evolution, after all. We are in especially dynamic times just now.
Capricorn rules Time and we can align ourselves with our own inner clock to know when to ponder, when to rest, when to initiate, when to complete, when to start anew. 💗
I wish you all much happiness, good health and a sense of alignment with your own timing in 2022.
Much love, Lydia
GEMINI FULL MOON
The full Moon takes place at 27 degrees Gemini on 18 December at 11:35 PM EST.
It aligns with the galactic center 26 degrees Sagittarius.
The Galactic Center is at the the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.
“It’s central massive object is a of about 4 million solar masses, which powers the compact radio source which is almost exactly at the galactic rotational center.” From Wikipedia.😊
A full Moon opposing the Sun conjunct the Galactic Center calls us to look at what sucks us in? What is our own supermassive black hole that is begging for us to know and experience our own Truth?
The Sun in Sagittarius calls us to our own center – that of our personal Truth found by accessing our own inner wisdom via the intuitive body.
External demands, mandates, rules and teachings can inform us, but they should not dictate.
Sagittarius yearns for freedom to investigate its own truth and to expand into into the experience of Natural Law – not man made law.
We pick up lots of ideas, bits of info, some that have feeling and meaning attached to them, some just fill our pockets because they glinted in the light at the moment we picked them up. Upon further examination, during Sagittarius time, and especially at the Gemini full
Moon, we discern which pieces become internalized as our own personal truth – more than a brief shimmer of glass, but the pearl of great price.
Our pockets may then be empty of trinkets. Our heart is full instead, of personal truth, insight and the freedom that comes from finding one’s own way.
The full Moon makes an air trine to Jupiter in Aquarius.
We could feel overloaded, even jangled, by tina of information. It could be helpful to feel the wind whistle through the ears – giving the mind a good airing out. It can kal low the info we want and need to settle and for the unnecessary info to get blown out.This can lead to renewed optimism and fresh ideas.
It could be a good idea to open a window or two in the home to clear the air and freshen the energy.
The full Moon is quincunx Pluto and Venus who are conjunct in Capricorn.
We are getting ready for a time of review of how we care for the next six weeks or so – until 29 January 2022. Venus begins a retrograde period a few hours after the Full Moon.
Venus rules what we care about, what we care for, and HOW we express that love and care.
Hopefully self care, self love, and self value are first on the list. Often at the turn of the year people take stock and think about how they would like life to be in the year ahead. With Venus retrograde at this time, the energy will point to what works, what could flow with increasing ease, and what can be released or jettisoned entirely.
With the conjunction to Pluto in Saturn- ruled Capricorn at the full Moon the energy says it is TIME to reflect, review and resolve to evolve. Saturn rules Time. We can ask the higher self what areas are ready for internal attention, intention and transformation.
The Sagittarius Sun likes to jump on opportunities as they present themselves. Tune in to the higher self. Ask what is up for revision/expansion/demolition I what we value and how we relate- to ourselves, to others and to ideas. See how it feels when an answer is given. Allow in the energy of changes if that feels right. Tune in some more to get direction and timing.
All of this is available to each of us. Sagittarius time is all about vibing with the intuitive body and having chats with the Higher Self.
We have access to our own built in Higher Authority. We need to but tune in to our own frequency.
We each have our own way of having this communication. It is the personal journey to develop the live and trust in the self to have these conversations, dreams, impressions, guidance.
One size definitely doesn’t fit all people and all circumstances.
Listen and learn. Learn to listen and the love and companionship of that crucial and glorious relationship – the one with the Self – will expand, grow and nourish.
Happy Holidays to one and all.
Lots of love, Lydia
SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE 2021
December 4 2021 brings the new Moon/total solar eclipse at 12 degrees 22 minutes Sagittarius at 2:43 AM EST.
Neptune has resumed forward motion at 20 degrees Pisces. It makes a wide mutable square to the Sun and Moon.
The mutable signs are willing to wiggle, wriggle and squiggle their way into new ways of being.
Neptune in Pisces finally resuming forward motion can help open up our heart to its desires so transformation can float through the door.
Saturn square Uranus in fixed signs wants to shake ourselves free of old entanglements and false senses of security.
Sagittarius can direct the flow of transformational energy. The archer can aim in an increasingly clear direction toward the vision/dream/ambition/hope/intuitive flash – depending on where we are on the spectrum of manifestation.
Sagittarius leads us to use intuition in concert with the mind to navigate all kinds of events in life – both large and small.🏹
Jupiter, ruler of Sagittarius, blows things up in size – sometimes way out of proportion- so that we can get a good look and feel of them. Sagittarius energy is teaching the path that favors honesty over self deception. Whether things are repeated or put under a magnifying glass, actions or experiences find a way to be seen clearly, scrutinized - truth taken and assimilated.
Finding a way to have an honest interaction with the self and others is a crucial
part of the Sagittarius journey. The sign, with its natural opposition to Gemini, has lots of information at its fingertips. Sagittarius needs to sift through all of the ideas and information and find the bits that ring true for the self- not what it thinks sounds good to others, but what rings true in the heart of hearts.
Laying ourselves bare to the deepest parts of the self and honestly acknowledging what is found is the purview of Sagittarius. The new Moon Eclipse is a powerful time to start.
We can start small – you know, I never did like big dinner parties! I’d rather eat on my own with a good book!
I know veg is said to be better lightly steamed but I want them cooked to mush!
Sagittarius loves liberation. It loves to break free of convention, and it loves to follow its own natural law.
So let the mane fly in the breeze and see where the self leads - naturally. The truth could be surprising and the truth can be super satisfying.
On the 14th Mercury enters Capricorn and Mars enters Sagittarius bringing form to ideas and the energy and optimism to get the plans in action.
On the 19th Venus turns retrograde at 26 degrees Capricorn deepening our connection to the heart and its deepest desires: past, present and future.
So at this new Sagittarius Moon/Solar Eclipse, let the Natural Self lead the way. Do what feels right. Sagittarius is just as happy studying in the library as it is surfing or running or skiing. It definitely likes to laugh and joke around. Fun is the gateway to so much self awareness and self acceptance, so enjoy life. Invite in an expansion of wisdom, insight and hilarity. Jupiter smiles on it all.
TAURUS FULL MOON ECLIPSE 2021
3:57 AM EST 19 November 2021 is at 27 degrees Taurus.
The Taurus full Moon is one of the most powerful of the year. The fixed opposition of Taurus to Scorpio has will and stubbornness and the entrenched desire and power to drive internal and external transformation. This full moon is square to Jupiter in Aquarius. Aquarius’ ruler, Uranus, is retrograde in Taurus and opposing Mars, traditional ruler of Scorpio, currently IN Scorpio.
Mercury is also in Scorpio and is widely conjunct the Sun at the Full Moon.
The Focus is on inner expansion – feeling the hugeness and wholeness that is our spirit self and our physical self. The focus is on how we can get a bigger sense of our relationship with the Higher Self. With a Taurus full Moon – what does that look like in the day to day? How can we enhance reliance on the Higher Self to help with guidance, decision making. The higher Self can also be relied on to comfort us, soothe us and smooth the way along the human experience. The Higher Self can better view the unfolding of our human experience – especially with the Eagle component of the Sun in Scorpio. Let the Higher Self fly out in front. It will give guidance on which roads to tread and when if we but ask, and get used to the sound of its voice.
The full moon is trine to Pluto in Capricorn. The Taurus moon wants to find value in the self. The trine to Pluto can pat us on the head and remind us how well we are doing in our lives on the Earth plane during these very wild, very transformative times. The trine to Pluto may remind us to drink water, eat a meal, get some sleep, as these are all nourishment to fuel the way on our evolutionary journey.
We are having an earthly experience. We want to feel it and know it and become changed for the having of it.
The trine to Pluto is a point of ease this Full Taurus Moon. Allow the mysterious Pluto power to fill up the body and the mind. Allow it to inform us through the senses, that we are a drop of the ocean that is the Beloved. We are on an adventure that the Soul chose to have.
The soul wanted to smell the grass and climb the hill and get hungry and have a meal. It wanted to experience being lonely and having a friend. The Soul wanted to be separate and to join back together. It wanted to yearn to find its true Heart and true Home when the time on Earth is done.
We live the life. We experience, experiment, test, observe, assimilate, create and change.
We do it through the body, the mind and the senses. It can look stagnant and same-y. The rock doesn’t get worn down by the river overnight.
Micro adjustments are being made: instinctually, intuitively, consciously - sometimes, barely consciously - often!
Let it flow. Does the droplet - as part of the rush if the river - pick its way tentatively down the rapids, stone by pebble by grain of sand? No, it allows itself to be carried along.
We can allow the self to be carried along, alert to our surroundings sometimes, lulled to sleep by the familiar earthly noises sometimes…
Allie the life. Allow the higher self to take some of the weight of the journey. We are then unburdened. We are light enough to skip.
We are light enough to enjoy the ride.
The eclipse cycle starting now is the beginning of a six month or so ride.
Embark with expectancy that everything is working its way and is working out well for our best and highest good.
This is a long slow partial eclipse. The illumination will be incremental and interesting and unusual. May it’s pull and power be filling and fulfilling tonight and all nights.
Much love, Lydia
SCORPIO NEW MOON 2021
The New Moon is at 12 degrees of Scorpio on 4 November at 5:14 PM EST.
The new Moon in Scorpio invites us to gather in the power that courses through our minds, through our spirit and through our very ones and blood.
Pluto-ruled Scorpio wants to feel it’s power in order to have the courage to have the full experience of being human- of being an individual with choices.
When we breathe in our power, when we think into our power, when we walk in our power we can glimpse, and, at times, see fully, the glory of what we are, and experience the depths of what we feel.
As a water sign, Scorpio can tune into its own emotional field with a depth and complexity not available at other times of the year. We can enter the cavern of our soul and commune with our spirit and humanity there in the dark, there in the quiet, there in the safety that is illuminated by our own being.
We can rest there. We can be comfortable there, we can be challenged there: to gaze into the inner world, the one that is normally calling from the edges of daily life, of ordinary reality.
The Scorpio new Moon wants to bring what is calling to our individual self in from the edges – to invite the calling of our soul’s desire for evolution- right inside – where can feel it and sense it and hear the wisdom and adventure of what is next or even mor poignantly, what is now.
Right now in the cavern of the heart and soul we can meet with the love we hold for the Self. We can lavish ourselves with kind thoughts, sweet words and promises we aim to keep.
We can cross swords with a foe and walk away arm and arm – or on our own — empowered by the experience regardless of the outcome.
What is next may not be an action, or a plan, or a proclamation. What is next could very well be a way of being, a way of experiencing the self that is more true, more clear, more empowered, more you.
That which is unnecessary, that which nips at the heels, that which drags the energy down can be removed like an outworn, outgrown garment. That which is no longer useful can be blown away like dry autumn leaves – blown away to a garden bed as compost for next year’s shoots and growth.
Scorpio energy wants to Know. It wants to know so it can understand, so it can experience, so it can evolve. It is willing to sit quietly and attract its pieces that make up the puzzle picture, that add to the mystery. And then, as they come into focus, help to add clarity and solutions.
The New Moon is in exact opposition to Uranus retrograde in Taurus.
This can bring on the fire of rebellion, of reaction, of pure revolt.
If we can pause before engaging, this is not a bad idea. And it is a good idea to find safe and healthy somewhat healthy ways to revolt so when the new Moin is over the house is still standing.
On 6 November Venus moves into Capricorn and invites us to make or revise the rules of engagement, the rules of personal power and authority. We may want to set some new boundaries with family/friends/colleagues/neighbors. Venus in Capricorn will hold its own. It will speak up for itself. It will stand in strength. All of this jibes nicely with the unfolding empowerment of the Sun in Scorpio.
We keep our own selves company this whole life. This new Moon is a great time to be a good, fair, wise, fun, engaging, and inquisitive companion to our own precious selves.
Curl up in the great warm cavern of the self and have a nice chat, a good cuddle, and a good laugh at a private joke known only to you and Yourself.
Lots of love,
ARIES FULL MOON 2021
The full Moon is at 27 degrees 25 minutes Aries on October 20 2021 at 10:56 AM EST.
Aries ruler, Mars, is nearly hand in hand with the Sun just widely squaring Pluto now direct at 24 degrees Capricorn.
That means Mars in Libra makes a Cardinal square to Pluto in Capricorn around the Full Moon in Aries.
There can be a desire to exert the will in the world and with others. The energy can be channeled into increased action, responsibility, steps toward goals: both individual goals and shared goals.
The full Moon in Aries says Here I Am!!! All caps.
And a big “Now what?!?” can follow that. At the full moon, an expression of the “Here I Am!!!” part of the equation can be best expressed with an outflow of pure energy – wild dancing to primal beats, bursting into a sprint, chugging a red smoothie while smiling at the moon through the resulting scarlet mustache.
I also recommend swearing at the drama on TV for moving to slowly, shredding a bunch of unwanted mail then stomping on the resulting pile. This could escalate to contacting the guilty parties who are sending the unwanted mail and imploring them to desist!
Rake the leaves in an aggressive fashion – jump in the pile and, perhaps, or perhaps not - rake them up again. Scrub out the stain the red smoothie left on your pajama top. Or leave it as a glorious reminder of your inner firepower. Cardinal energy wants to start something so you know…
Write down what you really really want in red ink. Stomp triumphantly around the house feeling into the soles of your feet like you already have what it is you want.
Growl at - and with- the cat or dog. Feel the power of your blood pumping through the physical system. Feel the blood rush to your head. Aries rules the head. See what comes to mind. Remember it. Forget it. Remember it again. What ideas and thoughts keep coming up when we step in, then step away, then step in again is worth giving some attention. We have a fiery full Aries Moon opposing an airy Sun in Libra. Mars in Libra. Fire ignites the mind – air. The Mars square to Pluto in Capricorn fuels the evolution of the soul and invites us to step into personal power, personal authority and personal responsibility.
I AM HERE!!!
Now what am I going to do about it? Most planets have resumed forward motion. Activate the passion. Motion is the potion. Jupiter, newly direct, at 22 Aquarius is making an air trine to Mars at the Full moon. It brings rebellious fun, optimism, and athletic enthusiasm to this party.
Both Jupiter and the energy of the Aries full Moon say have fun with the fire of human existence. Dance in the bright yellow moon of it all. Yell into the is-ness of being.
The doing will come. The thinking will come. The consideration will come. A full Moon – especially the Aries full Moon is about the feeling of it. All.
That ram may be grinning. I think he is showing his teeth.
Lots of love. I’m howling with you all today.
LIBRA NEW MOON 2021
On October 5 2021At 5:05 AM EST We have the new Moon at 13 degrees 24 minutes Libra.
The Sun, Moon and Mars are all at 13 Degrees. The Mars conjunction to the new Moon may make us itchy to start something – a project, a painting, or with the quincunx to retrograde Uranus in Taurus – a fight.
So, we can step back. We can count to ten. We may want to find a way to correct a seeming imbalance. We may want to wait til tomorrow, or the next day, before we offer up opinions or demands for a correction.
Some things naturally come into balance on their own.
Some things need to swing way out of the appearance of alignment to highlight the issue enough that it gets attention and calibration.
Being an air sign — of the mind — Libra is observant and doesn’t always speak or act. It may just hold both sides of the story while the issue swirls and roils around it. The set of balances is impartial. It just stands and weighs. Libra can see all sides of a situation.
Retrograde Mercury is at 20 degrees Libra at the new Moon. Mercury goes direct on 19 October. We are reviewing, relaxing, restoring, rethinking, and maybe even resuming. The energy of action and rest or even retraction are natural for Cardinal signs.
The Cardinal signs- Libra, Capricorn, Aries, and Cancer have initiatory energy- they like to start things.
Then they might backtrack, stop, or even retreat altogether.
The key is to remember it is a dance. Two steps forward, one step back…
Full steam ahead may feel like the quickest way to reach a goal or destination, but it’s often not the most thorough or interesting way.
Retrograde bodies - currently Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter, Chiron, Neptune, and Uranus, remind us of the dance.
We remember our experiences and what we have learned so we can proceed with caution or wisdom or a reminder of methods we have picked up along the way.
With a Libra new Moon, the idea of being a part of a group- of friends, lovers, colleagues – arises once again.
Libra is learning how it wants to be in the world. With all of these retrograde planets, Libra is asking how we want to interact and who we want to be as we do that.
Many of us have been interacting with the world in very different ways for the last 18 months or so.
This new Moon is asking how can we relate to ourselves, first, and to others, second, in a creative way that suits who we are now.
Pluto, now at 24 degrees Capricorn, will resume forward motion on October 7th. The idea of how we have evolved as individual humans, spiritual beings, artists, thinkers, problem solvers, survivors, is to be contemplated, and the ideas assimilated, at this new Moon.
Our routines, work, friendships, families, communities have all been rearranged in some form or fashion.
How can we consider our personal equilibrium so that we can move forward, backward and side to side – even up and down— in a way that works for who we have become?
Some relationships have gone into the background, perhaps.
The relationship with ourselves has become paramount. New or different relationships may have come to the fore.
Perhaps there are some gaping holes left that loved ones have vacated— they are sorely missed.
Libra is about relating. It is about seeing those with whom we relate and determining who and how we are in relationship to others.
It doesn’t mean we ratchet up our codependency. It means we see how we want to navigate the earth plane, in part by watching and learning from others. We engage by making a decision from that observation and interaction, of who and how we want to be. We adapt and adopt and make something new when we integrate some of what we’ve observed or experienced.
The beauty of Venus-ruled Libra is that we make our own version of humanity, of a spiritual being having a human experience. We are influenced by our surroundings: human, nature, animals, architecture, media. We observe, review, digest, act, reflect and refine based on our insides and our outside world.
Who, then, do we want to create? How, then, do we want to proceed -one or two steps at a time – forward or back?
Who will hold our hand or walk side by side? Do we need to go alone? Do we want to phone a friend for encouragement?
All of this is the Libra consideration and movement. Breathe in the air, the expectation, the intention a d the expression that is our life.
PISCES FULL MOON 2021
28 degrees Pisces 13 minutes at 7:54 PM EST 20 September.
We’ve nearly made it to the 2021 Equinox which takes place on Wednesday, the 22nd when the Sun enters Libra.
With the Autumn Equinox in the North and Spring in the Southern Hemisphere, we now have a moment of equal day and night. We start a new half of our year.
Mercury has a retrograde motion in Libra from September 26 to October 18. This invites us to use the mind to connect to the beauty that resides in the heart.💜 It is a time to let the mind sync with the heart of the self, the heart of nature, the heart of the universe and the hearts of other beings, seen and unseen.
The Pisces full Moon is an end point as it is the final – 12th sign of the zodiac and at the next full Moon we start at the beginning again with Aries.
So, this is a completion time.
We are also about to enter the last quarter of the calendar year — a time to start reviewing and wrapping things up.
The Pisces full Moon asks us to put our head on the pillow and dream into the time so far – in this year, in this segment of our lives, and in the season to come.
Pisces holds the energy of all 12 signs and can access to he gifts and abilities of those 12 signs.
Pisces is not to be underestimated. It may appear jovial and at ease at parties. It may seem to get things down while appearing to exert little effort.
It may have the remarkable ability to bring a smile to pretty much anyone’s face, regardless of age, disposition, social status or relationship to that Pisces.
When they are in tune, they can move through life like a silvery fish slipping through water glimmering in the sun.
And they can make it all feel like a poem or a love song or a ridiculous joke.
When we have the Pisces full Moon we can FEEL into some of these magical Pisces qualities.
We can dream into our hopes wishes and desires and ask the waters within to float us toward those aspirations.
The Virgo Sun can bring practical steps toward the dreams coming to fruition, while the Pisces full Moon can loosen the strings to feel the way forward.
With this full Moon comes the reminder that we can remain tuned in beyond our moments of daily reflection and meditation. We can be open, at all times, to insight, inspiration, ideas and the nudges of guidance.
Head on the pillow, feet on the ground, the heart is the meeting place to lead on.
The kindness and compassion of Pisces can be felt for the self and can be a guide.
The embodiment of that self love and respect can then radiate out to others.
If we are brought up being told to love others, we must experience that love within in order to be able to share it, to radiate it.
This is an old message to be sure, and it bears repeating… and it bears practicing.
Is there something we could bestow upon ourselves at this full Moon that we have been withholding?
Perhaps it is forgiveness, or self respect or self soothing or adventure or some pampering?
Where we have been a hard task master of the self, or over critical, we could turn it around and make a list of things that are acceptable, lovable, fun and lovely about ourselves.
And what would this acceptable, lovable, fun and lovely person like to do, think, be, and have in this precious life?
We are at the heart of the dream.
Lots of love,
VIRGO NEW MOON 2021
The New Moon at 14 degrees 37 minutes Virgo occurs on 6 September 2021 at 8:51 PM EST.
The Sun and Moon make an earth trine to retrograde Uranus in Taurus. Virgo is ruled by Mercury and Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. We have greater access to higher wisdom that can be accessed by going within.
The New Moon invites us to take time to listen to the Higher Self to see how it can give insight, information and wisdom to the regular old walking/talking/interacting/
chatting self. We can then take the wisdom on board and integrate it into our daily life, our daily mindset.
Perhaps new ways of engaging the Self are called for: how is your self talk game? Is it kind, encouraging and soothing? Does it bring in fun, new ideas and illuminating projects?
Perhaps trying new ways of interacting with others is called for.
Virgo likes to organize, sift, and sort. It likes to joke around and have fun with words and games. It likes to find ever better and wiser and more efficient ways to get things done so there is more time and space for new ideas, inner and outer journeys and interesting conversations.
There is a reason they say we have to do a clear out if we want to welcome the new into our lives. Virgo is a dab hand at rearranging and clearing so that there is room for the New that we are attracting into our experience.
On 10 September, Venus enters Scorpio.
On 14 September Mars enters Libra. With these two personal planets in signs of relating and the sharing of resources, it is a great time to relate with others in new ways: finding ways to partner up, share ideas, projects, fun and adventures.
It can be a bit of a Stone Soup time- starting with an empty pot and seeing what kind of soup can be made when each of us contributes the to the party.
Virgo is in charge of healing. We turn attention, as we approach the Equinox later this month, to adjusting to the changing of season. Just as we may prepare our wardrobe for the change in temperature, we can also can prepare the body and mind for the time to come. Our inner nature can inform us what foods will support our system in the new season. Our inner nature can inform us of when to join with others and when to conserve energy.
Virgo is at the half way point of the astrological year. It is the sixth of the 12 signs. The first five are focused on building the self as an individual.
Virgo takes time to review that self we have been building before we embark on the next six signs which have a more outward social/communal/group minded focus.
The energy to for the season ahead comes from the new Moon’s time of quiet reflection, nourishing food and rest.
Then, refreshed and renewed, we proceed with good.orderly.direction.
