AQUARIUS FULL MOON
AUGUST 11 9:35 PM EST
The August Full Moon is at 19 degrees 21 minutes Aquarius.
Saturn is close to a conjunction of the moon at 22 degrees.
The Leo Sun and the full Moon make a pretty close square to the powerful Uranus/ North Node and Mars conjunction. Mars has moved away a bit at 25 Taurus. All of it is close enough to have an effect at the full Moon.
Aquarius wants liberation. Saturn in Aquarius wants liberation from traditional timelines, systems, and fear.
The Leo and Aquarius axis asks the individual as creative entity how it relates to the collective – Aquarius.
How do we each do our own thing and how, when, if, and to what extent do we bring it to the group?
Aquarius is the collective higher mind of Mercury. I picture it as a cloud of information and genius that hovers above and around us.
Some reach up and pull a bit of that genius information down to the minds of the earth plane. Sometimes that genius information is delivered to us as a flash of lightning-like inspiration.
Some know things way before others and are ostracized for speaking it out… maybe even vilified for saying what is beyond the collective acceptance.
Now, as we enter more and more into what is called the Age of Aquarius, more people are gaining information and awareness together.
Sharing of ideas, concepts, and actual experiences on Social media are speeding this up. We can choose what we want to explore. We can choose what abilities we want to develop. All along the way, we must engage and strengthen our individual discernment muscles to make sure that what we are taking on board rings true for each of us.
Shine the light of the Sun on information that is coming our way. Run it through the wisdom of the individual heart to see if what we see and hear makes sense to us.
The wise heart is a muscle that will guide us rightly on our way the more we exercise and trust it.
Venus, ruler of Taurus – our value system and ruler of Libra – our ability to see all sides of an issue – moves into Leo on the day of the full Moon.
Venus has a close relationship to the Heart – what we value, what we want to keep safe, what we find to be beautiful.
When moving from the energy of creative Self into the energy of the Whole- how and when and how much we want to engage – we can ask ourselves some questions.
Does this engagement – or the idea of it – make me feel better? Does it align with my values? Do I need to go back and check on my values again to see how they may have shifted? Will it be fun? Is it for the common good? Is it for my good? Will I feel invigorated or depleted from the interaction? Does it suit my personal creative goals?
Uranus, ruler of this full Moon in Aquarius, is in Taurus until April 2026. So, as a group, we are examining our value systems and what we do value for quite some time.
Uranus holds sway over long-term memory. It also is in charge of the unconscious with which we have some connection through memory or through dreams or nudges from the voice within.
The Aquarius full Moon is a good time to use all of the senses and tools we have developed to utilize the personal lightning rod that connects us to our Higher Mind. It connects us to the Higher Self that is always with us, wants to connect with us, and wants to help us on our way.
Through daily practice that invites the Heart/Mind connection we have a stronger conduit through which the Higher Self can communicate to us as individuals.
Flashes of insight, inspiration, and genius are more easily noticed, assimilated, and put to good use when that connection is strong, attended to, and kept in good order. When it is a normal part of the life to receive guidance, inspiration and intuitive information, it becomes as reliable as the senses of vision, hearing and touch. The other senses work so well because we use them every day. We expect that they will work. We rely on them. We can come to rely on our internal compass in that same way.
Aquarius energy is all about individuation. It is all about being our own guru. It is by joining with the Higher Self and the still small voice within to find one’s own way - one’s own sense of value - one’s own validation – and one’s own Truth.
It is a creative journey, and the Sun of the Heart guides the way.
LEO NEW MOON 2022
Call to individuation!!!
The Leo full moon is going to lead us into quite a liberating time.
Leo says “this is me!” via creative self expression. It interprets its experience of the physical, emotional and interpersonal levels by making something that others can experience, and, perhaps, interpret. Others may identify with the expression even if their experience was very different.
Leo is ruled by the Sun that shines on us all.
The expression can be a song, a pie, a painting, a love affair, a rant, the making of a child.
On July 31st, the call to individuate will vibrate across the world. Uranus will conjunct the North Node (the personal call to individuate) and Mars (the drive to do it!) all in Taurus. Venus-ruled Taurus wants to find personal value in our actions, routines, belief systems, belongings, relationships. It asks us to find beauty and value in what we ingest: the food we eat, the information we sift through, the ideas we take on board.
This conjunction of the North Node, Uranus and Mars may be shocking, invigorating, illuminating, electrifying, traumatic, delicious.
It will NOT, however, be predictable.
Uranus has been in Taurus for a while now. Depending on where it is in your chart by house and how it is aspecting other planets in the chart will indicate what areas of each person’s life has been up for a value review/ renovation/upgrade or complete rebuild.
This conjunction is going to switch the klieg lights on this area of the life and say it’s showtime!’
We may well be in our underpants when those lights go on. We may be eating a third bowl of cereal while watching the same ridiculous Tik Tok for the umpteenth time. Because silliness is the only thing that makes life bearable. That and cereal.
But uh, yeah, we will be awakened and we may need to shift, pack, quit, and think on our feet.
Again, I have no clue how this will play out for me or for you.
Perhaps, at least be wearing clean underwear on the day.
The south Node in Scorpio, the polarity for these shenanigans, had secrets. It had back room deals with untrustworthy people. It had us plotting our escape. It may have had us smiling to hide the fear of taking the step to liberation, to keep the status quo during uncertain times. It was thinking it needed that partner’s money, that company’s status and paycheck.
Taurus hasn’t got a lot of patience for secrets, masks, jerks, or back room deals.
The Uranian lightning may flash and reveal a shocking scene taking place in the shadows. These shadows might be in the boardroom, the bedroom, or in a secret closet in our own memory.
Flash! The light goes on revealing the mystery in high relief. The Sun is in Leo. It may feel VERY dramatic.
Sometimes a situation needs to be dramatic to highlight truly how far a situation has gone that we have been accepting, tolerating, abiding – hoping that it would change? Hoping that we would magically have the opportunity, the courage, the invitation to freaking MOVE!
Well, here it is, my friends!
The back may finally be against the wall. The sheath of denial and excuses for staying may, at last, be in tatters at our feet. You could feel the situation may not be withstood for one more minute! Some of us will be removed entirely from the circumstance - waking up on the other side of the street- or on the other side of the world.
Maybe you’ll finally throw away that sock that is beyond mending. Or, you’ll ditch the relationship, the job, the leftovers. You’ll get in the next train out of the town whose politics and policies are so beyond your own value system you just have to up stakes and GTFO. Like right now.
Wow what’s it like when everyone feels like this AT THE SAME TIME!
Maybe throw those leftovers out today. Do some meditating on what you really, really want at the New Moon. Make yet another gratitude list. Make a list of what you value. Ask your higher self, the Universe, the ancestors and anyone else who is listening for help, clarity, guidance and grounding. We going to need it.
Lots of love to you. Leo rules the heart so let it quiet, excite, soothe, share, and guide.
CAPRICORN FULL MOON
Capricorn full moon on July 13 2022 at 2:37 PM EST is at 21degrees 21 minutes.
Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is at 24 degrees Aquarius retrograde.
The Sun of course is in Cancer until 22 July.
The theme of responsibility for our own emotional wherewithal and for naming and affirming our own agency and personal authority continues. This can look different for each person.
It can be marching, placards held high, in the streets.
I can be keeping the vibration high by any means possible: meditation, time in nature, laughter, encouragement of self and others.
It can be letter writing campaigns, making amends to an old friend, opting out of habits and routines that no longer serve the self or the collective.
The call is to balance the emotional and intuitive body with the Cancer Sun. Assumption of personal authority while coexisting with governmental, corporate and familial authority is the call of the Capricorn full Moon.
The Capricorn/Cancer energies are ongoing as Pluto, planet of power and evolution, remains in Capricorn until next year. Pluto will dips its toe into Aquarius for a while starting on 24 March to 11 June 2023.
How to hold our own amid upheaval of all kinds IS part of the curriculum at this time.
To find ways to steady ourselves, first, is key. This calibration and recalibration may be necessary several times a day and through the night. We may need all of the trusted tools in the toolkit to find peace and comfort. We may need to adopt many more tools as we go.
Fortunately social media is chockablock with people sharing what practices work for them.
This calibration is happening at all levels and in all systems at the moment so it’s like keeping one’s footing as wave after wave rolls under the ship and moves on.
I can recommend keeping it simple. I can recommend meditation. I can recommend journaling and vision work. I can recommend gratitude lists more than ever. I can recommend encouraging one another. I can recommend encouraging ourselves.
Good things are happening every day. Little and big wins are being had.
Mars is in Taurus until August 21. The best tool we have is self care and self love. It is time to refine our list of what we value most and to allow a life filled with those things we value most to be part of the daily experience.
It can mean where can we live to experience what we value? What can we do for work that enhances the life experience? What type of routine works best for our health and overall stability.
Do we want to be surrounded by trees? People? Mountains? Skyscrapers?
With Jupiter in early degrees of Aries, we can instinctually tune in to what makes us feel most expansive and optimistic. More of that, please! 😊
Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde. Photos from the Webb Telescope are showing us photos of the cosmos from way back to the beginning of time.
What stars are glimmering in each one of us from the dawn of our own history that can illuminate our paths right now?
Pay attention to dreams – ask the higher self to reveal, in sleep, symbols and actual words what would be most helpful for us to see and know at the moment.
We can meditate each day and invite our higher self, our soul, to be embodied, listened to, and known.
We have more power and ability than ever to step into our own vastness. We have more ability to know, to be informed by a greater wisdom. To be motivated by our inner stars.
This isn’t just talk. This is becoming more real by the day. Invite it in. Allow the shift. Embody the new reality.
Cancer New Moon 2022
Who Rules Your Roost?
The new Moon on 28 June 10:52 PM EST is located at 7 degrees 22 minutes Cancer.
Saturn and Pluto retrograde.
Jupiter Chiron and Mars in Aries. Jupiter is exactly square the New Moon.
Venus is exactly semisextile the New Moon at 7 degrees Gemini. Gemini is ruled by Mercury. Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius which makes a natural opposition to Gemini. The task of gleaning what is true for us, at core is important to us as individuals and as a collective at this time.
We can begin again to look at and practice how we value our own personal agency and authority with the new Moon in natural opposition to Capricorn.
What happens when external entities attempt to assert parental authority on the adult individual?
How does the individual embody and assert its role as an adult member of the collective?
What voice does it use? What information does it have at hand? How does it balance emotion and steely resolve?
The Jupiterian aspects at this new moon can make situations feel larger than life. They can also fuel us with a much needed can do optimism.
The natural Cancer square to Libra asks how can I be myself in relation to others.
Saturn in Aquarius is Sextile Mars in Aries bringing the fuel to keep us going on the endeavors on which we embark: whether it is writing letters, making placards, hitting the streets, or tuning in to the angels, guardians, ancestors, guides, spirits of Nature to help in the subtler realms to raise vibrations and direct energies where they are needed most.
Each has its many gifts. Each has its choices on how to process, and to respond.
When it may all feel like too much, focusing on homely things can bring us back to center, to recharge, during this potent And new mooniest of new moons because Cancer is ruled by the moon.
We can connect with Spirit and ourselves by focusing at the task at hand. The garden always gives comfort and company. Cancer is finding a way to be emotionally secure on its own steam. Our stomach asks for a meal that shows we value our physical body by feeding it well. The laundry gives an opportunity to quiet the mind and open space to receive valuable info while being grateful for the clean chemise. Cancer is the Mother and she has eyes in the back of her head. She knows and sees most things. The rest of it she feels. Allow time to embody the fullness of the divine Feminine and allow the fierceness of her fire to gather in the belly. The wisdom, strength and courage to mother all kinds of things – not just children – is calling to us at this new Moon. It is calling to be brought home to each of us and to be nurtured and grown in our own special way. Whatever we dream into and create is witnessed and blessed now. New projects, new or reawakened spiritual practices- can be embarked on now. Whatever brings us closer to the home within, to the Self we love and value first and foremost. Then we light up like the moon and we set the skies aglow.
Neptune begins retrograde motion in its home sign of Pisces until December 22nd. Our deepest side will be the guide. Dream into creative solutions now.
May Courage, strength, and a sense useful direction be with us all.
The June full Moon takes place on 14 June 7:51 AM at 23 degrees 25 minutes Sagittarius.
Sun in airy Gemini feeds the fire of Sagittarius.
They are mutable signs that want to flow, blow and transmute.
See what a light breeze can do to fan flames. See what a wind can do to transport a pile of old leaves and dust.
See what a fire can do to completely change a landscape.
Now see what new information can do to change the mind.
Both Sagittarius and Gemini deal with information and ideas.
Gemini likes to collect anything new: from ideas to technology to fashion to gossip.
Sagittarius likes to sift through the input to see what it makes of it. Sagittarius deals with truth and lies. This is why Sagittarius also rules higher education. Hopefully, with elevated study, we learn to think for ourselves. That is a natural progression into maturity. We examine the world around us. We take a bit of the fruit to see if it is wax or plastic or actually an apple.
This process of investigation is the Sagittarius way.
What in our lives, at the moment can appear to be worthwhile, appear to be nourishing, appear to be in our best interest – but may really just appear to be…
What is the truth of the activities, relationships and things in our lives?
Is that really the best knife for me to use to cut carrots? Or was I just convinced of that fact on TikTok?
Which knife in my drawer works the best for me?
It is easy to be drawn in by the next trend, that thing that is shiny and new or the thing that was persuasively introduced by a convincing influencer?
Using our natural talent, developed over the lifetime, is how we determine the truth from a lie for ourselves.
This is very much the business of the Gemini/Sagittarius polarity.
We gather information and experiences. We find and hone our own ways of evaluating these experiences. We develop the ability to discern.
We have the opportunity to learn to read and trust our inner compass that always knows True North.
When we are told that a person or entity has our best interest at heart, yet we see by their actions that is, actually not the case, we hopefully are able to see the truth from the lie.
We are then able to make a change. With mutable signs we are able to make choices, to adopt new ways of being, to take a different path, to change the station, to adopt new thought processes.
We live and we learn.
This full moon is making a pretty close square to Neptune in Pisces. Neptune can envelope us in fog so that we can either stay lost OR we can develop our higher senses which are natural to us. We can listen to our intuition to see if what we are hearing is true or is a load of the same old rhetoric delivered by a glitzier or more on brand mouthpiece.
Trusting your natural wisdom and tools for discernment are key at this time. We will have the opportunity to deepen this connection as Neptune goes retrograde on 28 June until 3 December.
Mars and Sagittarius’s ruler, Jupiter, are both in Aries so we are going to want to make some initiatory moves – some of them out of pure instinct. Saturn is retrograde in Aquarius so factor in space and time for wild card course corrections and restructuring that may arise — perhaps seemingly unbidden — from the depths our individuated unconscious. Uranus, ruler of Aquarius, rules long term memory. With Saturn retrograde in Aquarius we may get the answer to or insight on a question we forgot we asked. That flash of unexpected awareness will, actually, be exactly on time.
Mercury has resumed forward motion and is at 00 degrees of its home sign, Gemini, at this full moon.
00 degrees of any sign is a powerful new beginning.
It is advisable to avoid picking up and ingesting the same old crap. Feed the mind and body and nervous system what is nourishing for YOU.
Only you know, in your wise system, what that is. When feeling lost in the murk, go back to basics. Remember to give the self daily pats on the back – for making the bed, for showing up for responsibilities, for making it this far in life! Seriously! Sing out in the fog and let the sound of your own voice guide you Home.
Remember what you find funny, what you find inspirational, what gives you comfort. Remember who has been kind and who has been a right prat.
Remember when you have been helpful and when you have had to apologize for being a right prat.
Honesty, openness, willingness – these three — will hold us in good stead as we navigate life on the earth plane and it’s many dimensions- physical, spiritual, mental, social, romantic, political, ecological.
We are natural beings having a natural experience.
Ask yourself at this full Moon: What would be my most natural next step? To eat a meal, take a walk, ask for wise counsel, move two miles or two thousand?
Sit with questions and let answers come- naturally — from the wisdom that resides - always – within.
Lots of love and good luck!
Luck is ruled by Sagittarius. 😊
GEMINI NEW MOON 2022
On May 30, 2022, at 7:29 AM EST, this new Moon takes place at 9 degrees of Air sign Gemini.
Mars and Jupiter are virtually conjunct in Aries at this new Moon inviting us to act in instinctual and optimistic ways.
Since Gemini is a mutable Air sign and it’s ruler, Mercury, is retrograde at the new Moon, we may get new and better ideas on a project or plan that is already on the mind or in the works.
Saturn in Aquarius square to Mercury in Taurus also brings flashes of genius that can be activated now – or groundwork, at least can be laid.
Mercury retrograde in Taurus asks to review projects and plans and remember why we started them in the first place and do they still have value? Has the need changed? Have circumstances shifted and the plan needs to be amended in pace with the new situation?
Mercury resumes forward motion on 3 June. Making the most of reflection and review of projects and plans will save time and energy in the coming weeks and months.
Saturn goes retrograde in Aquarius on June 4 and will resume forward motion October 23.
This gives us plenty of time for self correction, straightening out the structure of our lives: how time is spent and where. We can revisit old squabbles and see where relationships need attention, amends, reunions or partings.
We can choose to look at where we can grow up and take more responsibility for our own paths and priorities.
Find our own inner authority, break away from historical ties and imagined imprisonment to institutions. We can practice stepping each day into agency over our own lives. We can release real or imagined offenses/insults from others. We can dust off our own shoulders, be unburdened by rules that don’t serve us, and walk into a life that we choose. We can choose when rebelling is for our own good, or is simply a reaction to historical wounding or habits. Where is my wounding acting as a placeholder for where the life I want should be residing?
We can start again at any moment- to move toward what we do want in this life. The wound, the habit, the uncertainty can be replaced with a hope that becomes a vision, an experiment that becomes a practice, a foray that becomes a beloved and useful routine.
Paying particular attention to the why of the plan, the value for you of the plan on all levels – is it fun? Is it unfolding in a graceful way? How about the timing? Should it stay in the planning stages? Should we forge ahead? Let the intuition and higher mind be the guide. Take a quiet time to reflect on priorities and make adjustments where it seems right to do so.
Just a reminder: Gemini is the first of the mutable signs. It helps to transform ways of thinking. Let the wind tousle the hair and clear the ears to better hear what the Higher Self and Higher Realms have to tell. Gemini blows new information our way. What we do with that information is up to us. Discern what is useful and what can be swept away on a breeze.
The threads of the life can be picked up again and again - at any time – to weave that tapestry into something new, precious and spacious.
SCORPIO FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE
The Big Ask
12:13 AM EST May 16 2022 at 25 degrees Scorpio.
This is one powerful full Moon. Fixed Earth Taurus is face to face with fixed Water Scorpio each with something to learn and to absorb from the other.
Just a reminder if Scorpio keywords: power, metamorphosis , evolution, mystery, karma and commitment (or not committing).
Taurus can learn to soak up shared resources, assistance from others and sharing of feelings and actual stuff: a handful or herbs, a recipe for soothing the throat or how to act up in the community.
Scorpio can learn from Taurus how to bask in the beauty of a lawn littered with dandelions and bees just waking up from a winter of dozing.
Taurus can reflect to Scorpio how to feel into and value it’s own vibration without concern of the outside world - it’s barbs, it’s judgements and it’s criticism.
Scorpio rules, among other things, the reproductive organs. At this full moon we can claim our own bodies, our own reproductive organs. With the opposition to Taurus we can find a way to safeguard the physical body our own body. We can do what we need to do to value that body and the organs within it.
The Sun and Moon are square to Saturn in Aquarius at the full Moon. Saturn makes the rules and Aquarius breaks the rules so that greater evolution and freedom can be attained. Saturn also brings personal responsibility to the mix- responsibility for our emotional body and over how we think and behave coming from a place of personal authority.
In this case, freedom - Uranus to have authority — Saturn over our own bodies – Scorpio – that we love, cherish and value – Taurus. Venus and Chiron are conjunct in Aries at the full Moon. Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Chiron is the doctor, the teacher, the wounded healer. Aries energy acts on instinct — to forge ahead to do what it feels in the moment is right.
Mars is conjunct Neptune in Pisces here. Mars is what drives our physical bodies around on the Earth plane. Neptune is what drives our spirit around in all the realms. We are able to – at this time- physically channel what is most needed for the body and the spirit.
Mercury is retrograde in Gemini almost conjunct the Sun. It is Sextile Jupiter at 00 degrees Aries. We have to find new ways to address old issues.
Jupiter is associated with freedom, expansion, and the truth. A new moment of speaking our own truth as an expression of our personal values is called for.
What does it all mean?
March in the street if you want to. Send money to the mist precious cause if you feel so drawn. Wear a T-shirt stating your views. Write to whoever wherever the laws are made or remade.
Loll around in the garden with palms pressed down on the Earth and say something like,
“Thank you. I love you. I am listening. What do I need to know? What do I want to do?”
Then actually expect an answer!
The answer may not come right away, but it will come.
Sometimes in an instant, as happened to me the other day. Sometimes in a different quiet moment the answer will come.
I hear that a lot of help us available to us. But we have to ask. Scorpio Full Moon Eclipse is about knowing when to ask and to allow the self to receive.
Lots of love, Lydia
TAURUS NEW MOON ECLIPSE 2022
We have a new Moon and Solar Eclipse onApril 30 10:28 AM EST at 10 degrees 28 minutes Taurus. There will be a Lunar eclipse at the Scorpio Full Moon on 15 May.
Eclipse cycles occur twice a year and they start in motion energies for at least the next six months. In this case the energy we kick off is…
Safety, security and beauty. Steadfastness. Decisions made and stuck to. Fixed signs can go the distance.
A delicious, familiar meal. A favorite pair of flannel pj bottoms. The view out the window of the flowers making their way up from the soil toward the Sun and my line of sight.
Taurus does like to rest and take in the view. It likes to identify the variety of fragrances wafting by on a breeze.
When a thorn sticks in its back side, however, Taurus will move quickly and decisively to remove it and dress the wound.
Taurus wants to protect the beauty, the fragrance, and even the thorn.
It values the taste of the familiar meal, the feel of the well worn flannel pj bottoms, the sting of the thorn.
While it may have its habits, Taurus knows what it likes and LOVES what it likes.
When love is expressed, the value is seen in the object, the relationship, the experience.
These are all part of the journey of existence. Seeing, feeling, enjoying.
With a new Moon in Venus-ruled Taurus we can be lead along on our path by taking the time to identify what is appreciated- in the world around us and very importantly in the Self.
At this Taurus New Moon Eclipse Venus is conjunct Jupiter and Neptune in Pisces. Neptune is the higher octave of Venus. Neptune is in its home sign of Pisces and is conjunct expansive and optimistic Jupiter. We are getting a MASSIVE supercharged new beginning booster rocket to the inner realms, to multidimensionality, and to the place where our dreams are so big and visible we can reach out and touch them. We connect through appreciation, beauty, the natural world, creativity and love in all of its expressions. Connecting and believing we are each a drop in the ocean and a flower in the field of blooms, experiencing the unity of being both our true Selves and One with everything. We go beyond duality to the dimension of spirit, led on the path by the heart. This is real and to be actively invited and experienced at this time.
Knowing what and how to Value – in the Self and in the experiences, substances, and relationships of life is a big part of the Taurean energy.
It is a fixed sign. It doesn’t move as fast as Cardinal Aries. It may not shift as fast a Mutable Gemini.
It uses its senses to tune into surroundings, ideas and plans. In a natural square to Leo it wants to continue creating itself. In the natural opposition to Scorpio it will consider the value in the Self and the Other and learn appreciation of both. In the natural square to Aquarius it can be open to wild ideas and shifts in consciousness. All are passed through the vibe check of the senses.
Taurus knows how to operate in survival mode. When the storm has passed, it may need to be coaxed out of its refuge. The best way to lure Taurus from its safe refuge is appealing to its senses: fragrant herbs and flowers, a roll down the grassy hill, a trip to a sculpture garden.
With the Taurus new Moon making an easeful Sextile to Mars in Pisces we may be lured out by a dreamy landscape or by the prospect of fulfilling a dream or vision.
Pluto, the power center, is starting a retrograde cycle on the day of this new Moon at 28 minute 36 degrees Capricorn.
Secrets about the structures of our own lives and the lives of our nations will be revealed in the coming months.
As we connect to beauty and the All that Is, we can connect with the depths of our own personal power centers in the quiet world of our innermost being.
It is time to connect with that unique power center each of us has, and to invite it to reveal what the best embodiment- first – and expression – second – of that power can be. For real. The time is now and each of us is the One.
To deepen the inner connection, Mercury embarks on a retrograde cycle from Gemini back into Taurus from May 10 to June 3. The inner voice will speak. The inner yearning for a convo about love, beauty and what matters most will grab our hearts and squeeze til we respond.
Hand on heart. Mind and heart. Love yourself.
It all begins. Again. Here. Now.
New Moon. New Beginning that eclipses all of the old beginnings. It’s all here for us to move into the experience.
LIBRA FULL MOON
Come Back to the Beauty
16 April 2022 2:55 PM EST.
The Libra full moon wants to help us to calibrate. The symbol of Libra is the balance. Libra Full Moon can highlight where we need to find our footing. Sun in Aries energy is exuberant and instinctual and may run head first into new experiences. When we leap before we look, we may land on a small stone that can give us a shaky landing.
Libra asks us to take a moment to review… any scrapes, scratches, regrets?
Libra is an air sign. It observes. It sees where the grace is in a situation, where the beauty of the next move may lie.
In a few days the Sun will move from Aries into Taurus where we may take one step back after the two steps forward taken during Aries time.
Libra helps to review progress made, lumps taken, information acquired thus far.
Mars and Venus are in Pisces, so our physical wiring and the desire nature want to be soothed and reassured that engagements are good for the wholeness if the self. Venus, ruler of the Libra full moon, makes a Sextile to Uranus and Mercury in Taurus. Taurus is also ruled by Venus. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. Both concern communication. Here, we can tune into what the vibrations of the Earth are telling the physical body. The nervous system can make a link to the Universal Mind. In other words, we can use the body to link the universal and the physical to calibrate to new, more expansive and helpful vibrations that are coming through at this time. More energy, assistance and synergy are on hand than we have previously experienced.
This opportunity is elevated by the Jupiter/Neptune conjunction in Pisces that is gifting us with expansion, compassion, insight and the ability to connect in new and more dynamic ways.
It’s like the love and prayer and connection has increased exponentially.
One just needs to ask, invite, and plug in. This can be done by feeling the feet on the ground and the Sun on the hands stretched to the sky and the Sun. It can be done by following, instinctually, how we are guided when we ask “how can I expand?” How can I connect?” “How can I be of assistance?” Trust the answers will come and then we will be guided.
As the Libra full Moon invites beauty, we will be soothed by that which is found pleasing and comforting to the senses by the individual. Go toward the beauty, the birdsong, the fragrant blooms. Be immersed in the senses and allow the to inform the mind and the body.
There is a great opportunity here to help and to expand on all levels to the needs of our planet, all of its inhabitants, and beyond. Once again, as it bears saying twice: We simply need to ask, to invite, to plug in to that which knows us best— the universal Love and the Higher Mind.
Much love to us all on this Libra Full Moon.
ARIES NEW MOON 2022
The first new Moon of the month 2:24 AM EST 1st April at 11 degrees 30 minutes Aries. We’ll have the second on April 30th in Taurus.
Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so this is another chance for a new year and a new beginning. We are shifting seasons in both hemispheres, so it’s a good time for a bit of a cleanse… a bit of fasting, a bit of juicing, some salt baths, deep breathing, yelling, stomping around, what ever clears the dust, outmoded thoughts and ashes of what’s left behind.
A fresh start is called for. We don’t have to start from zero. We can build our new year on the shoulders of good results and strong foundations already in place.
Aries is the fire of barefaced initiation that gives us the guts to move ahead. It must get up and go.
The Sun Moon and Mercury are riding together at this new Moon, so it’s a great time to step into some of those dreams that have been waiting on a dose of daring. All planets are in forward motion to support the headlong, maybe headstrong burst of energy and power that is arising.
If you’ve wanted to take up a new craft, go get some of the materials and get cracking on it. Break the eggs for that previously daunting recipe. Send that text inviting a new friend for an adventure.
The initiatory energy of Aries wants to dare. It wants to explore. It wants the experience of the unknown.
Aries rules the head, so an mind open to new ideas and different ways of approaching things is key.
Shake off some old ways and walk into the day as if it is truly a new day. One way to refresh is to take a different route to your destination. Try writing with your non dominant hand. Eat something different for lunch. Speak up. Wear a new color. All of these small changes to routine will give the mind a jolt of newness that can invite inspiration and innovation to this time.
Mars, ruler of Aries is in Aquarius until 16 April, so taking action on new ideas and flashes of insight can ground the big energies coming in.
Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces on 6 April. We can unite the excitement and ideas gifted by the higher mind to the wisdom of the Soul in the coming weeks – nurturing that which is new and necessary for our enrichment.
When in doubt, leap around like a spring lamb, allow for some head butts. Revel in any newness on offer. It all might just enliven the mind and the heart.
Aries energy is essentially instinctual, so breathe in the breezes and follow what smells best. 🐏🌑♈️
