ARIES NEW MOON #1 2023
ARIES NEW MOON 2023
This is the first of two Aries new moons in a row.
One on March 21 and one on April 19 on the 00 degree and 29 degree of the sign, respectively.
We will get two opportunities for new beginnings with the first and second new Moons of the astrological year.
I will talk about the first one – at 1;22 PM EST on 21 March. The Equinox is the day before at 5:24 PM EST.
The year is turning. The Sun, Moon, Mercury, Chiron, and Jupiter are all in Aries.
The North Node is conjunct Venus inTaurus.
Saturn, newly in Pisces, makes a harmonious aspect to the nodal axis calling time on the ways we may be maturing and moving more into that which we want to become.
Aries is fire energy. It is called by its instincts to act. It is initiatory Cardinal energy.We may feel a burst of energy and we may want to hop around like a spring lamb. There can be optimism and fun at this new Moon . With its ruler, Mars, in the last degrees of Gemini, we can can get thoughts and actions to sync up. Mars moves into Cancer on 25 March and the feelings may fire instinctive actions and reactions. Being mindful of both can help. Look within to see what needs protecting and what you want to show in the light of day.
On the 23rd, Pluto moves into Aquarius. This is the first time in 245 years – since 1778. Revolutions abounded at that time. People were involved in the political process and of how they chose to be governed. It would be advisable to join in with our country and communities now in whatever way we feel so moved and are able. Aquarius is community minded. It rules friends and brilliant ideas that can be put into action. May this be true for us now. Pluto will retrograde back into Capricorn on 12 June for the rest of 2023 and beyond, so planting seeds of unity and participation can be made with loving intent for the next couple of months. Pluto will also be squaring the moon’s nodes for the next year or so. Pluto is the evolutionary intention of the soul and the nodes plot the course for the personality. With this aspect, the opportunity is to square up the soul business with that of the personality business. In other words, any disconnect between the soul’s desire and the actions on the earth plane is best amended. Are we acting in alignment with our values? The North Node is in Taurus and the South is in Scorpio. Are we investing our time and money in activities, people, and companies that align with what we think is right? Are we sticking with some of them out of convenience and habit when we know in our hearts we could find another way?
It is time to get the values, the ideals, and the actions to line up. Each of us has our contribution that can be made to the events and restructuring of our personal and societal lives. We can makes some calls, plant some carrots, explain an issue to someone who has questions. We can meditate to raise the vibration. This is a good use of Saturn in Pisces energy- getting the body in sync with All That Is. It will help us to see more clearly how to proceed on a moment to moment basis. We can hold the vision for equitability and fairness. Those are two values I happen to like. What are your faves? It is time to align ourselves with that which we really want for ourselves and our earthly home. The help is there. The expansion can be made. The optimism comes with Aries in the spirit of new beginnings – that we can shift energy and start again – and again – to tune in with what we want and the beauty of how things can be. Happy Aries New Moon! Happy Astrological New Year! Feel the instincts and new birth desire energy rising up and leap. 🐏 ❤️🔥♈️
VIRGO FULL MOON 2023
VIRGO FULL MOON
7 March 2023 7:40 AM EST
16 degrees 40 minutes VIRGO.
At this important and impactful full moon in Virgo - Jupiter, Chiron, and Venus are conjunct in Aries asking for us to instinctually expand into new ways of valuing ourselves and all we touch.
Uranus in Taurus makes an earth trine to the Moon and sextiles the Sun — happy aspects both – even for an unpredictable planet. It pretends it doesn’t want to play earth people games – but it really does!
Clear a space in the garden or the carpet and ground the songs of the spheres into the physical body.
It’s no mistake Virgo full moon is the last full moon of the astrological year. Virgo is a transitional archetype, asking us to let go what doesn’t serve or what we simply no longer want in our lives.
Between now and the Equinox, appreciate what we have done, made and acquired on all levels. Integrate what needs to be assimilated. Gather what we no longer want or need and get it out of the house in the appropriate fashion.
Enjoy and appreciate what remains.
And look at the moon and inside for inspiration to move forward.
Saturn enters Pisces on March 8 after two plus years in Aquarius.
As Saturn rules time, structure, authority, rules, and karma it is a lynchpin of earthly existence.
In Aquarius there has been rebellion, revolution, alienation, and upheaval.
In Pisces we may see dissolution, disorientation, and confusion— all Neptune stuff.
Pisces is the last sign of the Zodiac. It holds the energy of all the signs. So, with Saturn in Pisces we can tune in anywhere on the astrological spectrum and ask for help. We may need to do it in spiritual channels: meditation, journaling, dreaming, etc. where were we at the end of the last Saturn cycle? Saturn was last in Pisces from early 1994 to early 1996.
Where is your natal Saturn and what aspect is Saturn making to that natal point now? Saturn is on about a 28 year cycle. So if you weren’t around 26 to 28 years ago, where were you 7 years ago, 14 years ago? 21 years ago?
What does Saturn mean to you by house and by sign? How does Saturn aspect your natal Sun?
Where does restriction affect your life? How do time and structure help you – or seem to hinder?
As Pisces is a mutable water sign, the time and opportunity are now to transmute/transform/translate that relationship with Saturn into one that goes both ways – that works for you.
If your natal Saturn is conjunct your natal Sun, you may feel constrained about your self expression. How can you work with that? Well, one way is to find a schedule and structure that works for you – get up everyday and have a set time to do your painting or writing or whatever. Work WITH the gifts that Saturn brings – a container for our expression – time, space and discipline for example.
Pisces rules our dreams wishes hopes and desires. Virgo rules the way we keep our day to day life chugging along- clean house, good health, right diet, balance of time for self and time for others- a crucial integrator, so to speak. Together, Pisces and Virgo give us the platform on which to enter into the dream space and return with something tangible. Pisces/Neptune, on its own, might not want to return from the alternate reality. Virgo holds the string to bring the soul back into the body. Saturn can help to make the dream a reality. If it is time. If there is a structure. If the Higher Self agrees. 😊
So things will get washed away in the next two years inside and out. Our work may be transformed in ways we can’t imagine. Find structures that work for you – that are both practical and dreamy; that are both strong and modular and adaptable.
Get your sea legs. You’re going to need them. Make sure your ship can roll with the waves and navigate in the fog. Clean the inner lamps that guide. Use the right fuel and make sure you know how to read the maps you are using to navigate life. This is the news consumed, the spiritual practices embraced, the friends and the conversations with which you engage. It means the historical tapes running in the head. Virgo Full Moon asks us to have a look at all of that and appreciate what is worth keeping and jettison the rest. And I choose to remember the wise words of Esther Hicks “you can’t get it wrong and you never get it done.”
We just keep showing up as best we can on each given day. Sometimes all we can do is nap and cry. Perhaps that is what is needed that day. Sometimes we can do some other things, too. 💗
Pluto enters Aquarius on March 24 for a while to give us a bit of what the next many years will be like. A time to use our power wisely for the transformative good of the individual- and of the whole. How we are true to ourselves will directly affect the outcome for the whole.
We need to hold our own while sharing the experience with the rest of the souls on the planet. It is time- it is a critical time- to Remember who we are as beings beyond this space time reality. We will each need to reach forward and backward in time to bring a consolidated, powerful, wholehearted self to the tasks at hand.
PISCES NEW MOON
The beginning of the end of the beginning.
PISCES NEW MOON 2023
20 Feb 2:06 AM EST 01 degree 22 minutes Pisces
Neptune at 24 degrees widely conjunct Venus at the last degree of Pisces.
Shortly after the new Moon is exact Venus moves into Aries.
Neptune rules Pisces. Venus is the lower octave of Neptune so we are keeping an eye and a heart and a dream and a vision in them both.
Venus enters Aries on 21 February, gives Neptune a kiss and jumps into action, into the fray, off the cliff or just steps out for a bit of fresh air in the clear light of day.
Neptune and Pisces are misty and moisty and deliciously rich. Pisces can be like a soup with lots of bits floating around in it. Some of the bits are familiar. Some are exotic. Some of the flavors are otherworldly and unidentifiable. We have to go beyond our regular senses with Pisces. We may take a step or ten into the void. We may need to trust. We may need to lean against an idea that turns out to be made of vapor. We may rely on something that does not yet exist.
Saturn is in an out of conjunction to the new moon in late degrees of wild card Aquarius. The way we bring form to our dreams may come through in weird and unexpected ways – through unexpected channels and connections with others. A happy aspect between Venus, Saturn and Pluto empowers mental and structural clarity to emerge from the fog – especially if we focus on what we value now. Saturn will enter Pisces on March 8th which will makes interesting work of our personal and societal rules and structures. Some could dissolve and fade away. Some could rise up fueled by fear, manipulation and delusion.
Pluto is currently at a critical degree 29 degrees of Capricorn preparing to move into Aquarius on 24 March after spending 15 years in Capricorn.
We will get a taste of this powerful next step into the age of Aquarius before Pluto retrogrades into Capricorn until 12 June , returning to Aquarius in January 2024 where it will remain until 2044.
The effect of the revolutionary energy of Pluto the powerful transformer in Aquarius can’t be predicted specifically. It will be powerful. It will involve the world community and it will likely transform life as we know it.
But for this new Moon, the last one of the astrological year, we can bathe in the wisdom of Pisces – the sign that holds the energy of all the signs.
We can look at the structures of our life and see how our thoughts, actions and interactions can better serve ourselves and the community.
It is import to strengthen our spiritual practice. In meditation, we can ask the Higher Self how we can contribute to the care, transformation, wisdom, and healing of ourselves and the whole. The internal focus will help us with orientation. Pisces can be foggy and it is helpful to know which way is up.
We do each have a part to play. For some it is quiet contemplation, grounding and stabilizing the new energies as they flow in to our environment. For some it is encouraging the self and others. For some it is actively rising up and expressing the needs of the self and of the whole. Our old ways may no longer be working. It is time to get with the Higher Self and tune in to the what our new role is. This way the individual’s energy is used to its best purpose. We will go with the personal and universal flow. We will be useful to the self and the whole and we will be energized for it as it will be the right use of our will – supported by spirit. Supported by the Earth. Held by the universal love of all that is.
Ask the Self. Ask the Higher Self for help and guidance. Wait in the assurance that the next step will be revealed.
LEO FULL MOON 2023
LEO FULL MOON 2023
5 February 1:27 PM EST 16 degrees 40 minutes Leo. Uranus is square to the Sun and Moon at 15 Taurus. This can shake up feelings of safety and security for both individuals and the collective. Find safe and comforting moments. Take time outs from what is happening on the outer. Allow yourself to take action — political/social/personal – in ways that suit you. Not all people are able to take to the streets in protest. We can write emails and letters to the editor. We can make a stand in social media. Leo creates for the self. For the joy of it. From necessity. From the heart. Because it comes from the heart it can serve the whole. How very Aquarian!
We can also take to the higher realms through meditation. We can take time raising our own vibration and permeate the field with increase of wisdom, of conscious love and compassion. When feeling helpless in the face of horror we can stop the wringing of hands and instead open the palms and use the power of our higher selves to raise consciousness.
Bothe feet on the streets and fists in the air AND meditation and prayer are Aquarian actions. Both are actions we can take for the good of the whole.
Mars is in a wide trine to the Sun at 11 degrees Gemini. So use the information you have and the language that moves with ease through you at this time. It might be one to one. It could be dancing it out. It could be words of encouragement. It could be words of power and praise. It could be a slogan on a sweatshirt or a new tattoo or a very personal manifesto.
Mercury enters Aquarius on 12 February. Mercury rules communication and Aquarius rules friends and communities. Communicating with different kinds of communities is useful at this time. We can reestablish links with our seen and unseen helpers: guardians, guides, teachers, angels and ancestors. We can speak with the higher minds of animal intelligences that we feel drawn to join with.
We can encourage communities that are experiencing great difficulties either by actual words or by energetic emanations. Aquarius/Uranus is a collective higher mind vibration so if these aren’t
things you’ve normally done now is a good time to give it a go.
Uranus rules the individual unconscious memory. This Leo full moon some of those memories may be illuminated. The feelings that come with the memories can be integrated via rest (the Lion does a lot of resting for good reason). We can integrate through creativity- painting, drawing, dance, cooking, gardening…even through watching a film or tv show that helps to process what is happening within us and around us.
Another way to calibrate with Aquarius Sun/Uranus in Taurus/Leo full Moon energy is to start with the Self. Uranus in Taurus is learning to manage the human computer- the personal electrical system. The physical body is a community itself – made up of fluids and muscles and joints and firing brain cells. We can take this time to tune into all of the moving parts that make up our personal, physical human experience. We can see where bits have veered off and need to be brought into alignment with the whole self. A full Moon can help to highlight what parts of us need attention, healing and love. We can always start from a focus on the self.
Much love, Lydia
AQUARIUS NEW MOON
AQUARIUS NEW MOON 2023
Happy Lunar New Year!
The first new Moon of 2023 is on
21 January 01 degree 32 minutes Aquarius. Mercury resumed forward motion on 18 January. Uranus goes direct at 14 degrees Taurus on 23 January. Uranus is the ruler of Aquarius- so perfect timing for the new Moon.
Of course, we also have a new beginning with the Lunar New Year of the Water Rabbit. The rabbit is associated with longevity, peace and prosperity. We can look for new ways of finding the happy qualities invoked by the rabbit.
Aquarius is the rebel of the zodiac and it likes to find its own way of doing things. The next couple of weeks is a good time to allow new ideas, new ways of thinking or to try NOT thinking. Hah hah.
All of the planets are moving in forward motion once Uranus goes direct.
We may find it easier paths to direction, solutions, and the energy to take action.
Aquarius likes to serve the common good. Its polarity- Leo- is developing the creative self. Wherever we are on that trajectory at the moment we can consider what is best for ourselves and what is best for the whole. We can view the full spectrum from “I Will” in Leo to “I Know” in Aquarius. Aquarius takes the big picture seen during Capricorn and internalizes it into useful information and direction.
We are nearing the end of the astrological year. Aquarius is the 11th sign. It is wild and it is wise. It can return from the maelstrom with a lightning bolt of truth it has snatched from the sky in the rainstorm.
Be aware of wild ideas. They may have been sent just to you as your awareness is aligned and ready to receive it. They may just be there to expand the mind – not necessarily to be acted upon. Discernment and wild-eyed genius go hand in hand.
Grounding is key during Aquarius so that we can be a lightning rod to receive next level information.
Run any guidance through your internal detector. Does this information sit well with me? For it fit with my values? We can also run ideas by our friends – Aquarius rules friendship and community. Aquarius makes a natural square to Taurus and it’s ruler, Uranus, will be direct in Taurus.
Do my ideas and actions serve the greater good? Do my ideas and actions serve me and my greater good?
Into the mix – the new Moon is in an out of sign conjunction to Pluto. It’s a reminder that even as we zoom toward the age of Aquarius — Pluto is still in authoritarian Capricorn.
Power. Authority. Rules. Schedules. Structures. Governments.
Here’s a gentle reminder that our relationship with personal
Power and the powers that be is ongoing. We still on the day- to - day are investigating the relationship between personal power and authority.
At this new Aquarius Moon it is a good time to keep an eye on our personal relationships with technology. This will be an ongoing theme with Pluto preparing to spend about the next 20 years or so in Aquarius. (Reminder- after entering Aquarius in March, Pluto will go retrograde on May 2nd and remain back in Capricorn from June until after the end of 2023. Capricorn transformation and power is not over yet!)
With the Aquarius new Moon we consider: How does technology serve us. How does it empower us? Where are we giving our power and time over to technology. It needs to be an ongoing discussion each one of us has with ourselves. To be conscious of the relationship with devices/information and their use to us is key now and as thing speedily change.
In the meantime open the windows! Let in the fresh new year energy. Do the rituals that support new and happy beginnings of all kinds. Welcome the Rabbit into your life and give it a pat and some sweet fresh carrots. Eat delicious food and allow the magic of time moving on to transform and empower.
Happy Lunar New Year! 🐇
All the best to you.
CANCER FULL MOON
CANCER FULL MOON
The first full moon of 2023 is on January 2023 6:08 PM EST at 16 degrees 21 minutes Cancer.
We have a Cancer full Moon focusing on our internal emotional life.
Mercury retrograde in Capricorn is conjunct the Sun and directly opposing the full Moon. Mercury is retrograde until January 19th.
Mars is retrograde in Gemini until January 12th.
If you aren’t feeling New Year vibes that is understandable.
Sometimes that burst of new energy doesn’t come when the clock strikes 12 on January 1.
The first few weeks of this year can be well spent finishing up goals and projects, doing a clear out and taking time to rest and reflect.
The Lunar New Year is on January 22nd. This coincides with the Aquarius new Moon on the 21st. New Moons are for new beginnings, so that would be a good time to make a list or what is wanted in the new year.
In the next two weeks it is a great time to finish up projects that we still want to complete. The ones we don’t can be cleared out to leave space for the new.
A retrograde Mercury and Mars invite us to see what is worth completing and what can be released, recycled, composted, etc.
Not all fermenting projects make for good eating. Not all acquaintanceships warm the heart.
We don’t have to embark on every path we have outlined in our minds.
Capricorn Sun asks us to claim our authority over the structure of our daily lives, over our schedules, plans, ideas and ideals.
Now is a good time to winnow down what we want from what we don’t. We can make mental and physical yes, no, and maybe piles – of plans, of projects, of relationships and of habits. The Cancer Capricorn axis has to do with parenting. It is a nice day to nurture ourselves as a kind parent would do. Soothing words, nice warm drinks, a lovely bath and a story with a happy ending can be just the ticket.
This will set the clear space to hop into the year of the Rabbit at the new Moon.
With retrograde Mercury opposing the new Moon, we can gain insight and clarity on how our emotional body is guiding our thoughts, ideas and intentions. This is very helpful because the inner – that feels good, that feels weird, that feels scary – but in a way I’d like to explore, that feels terrible in a way I would not like to experience— helps us to clarify what we do want in our lives.
The Moon and the emotions can lead the way. With Mars retrograde in Gemini – which rules the nervous system- our physical wiring will inform us of what we do and don’t want – a moment at a time.
This is a great time to tune into our own emotions and energy body, relaxing enough to let feelings and thoughts arise naturally to be felt and seen.
Write some questions to the Higher Self that knows us so well – because it is us. Ask whatever you want to know. If you’re not sure try asking “what do I need to know right now?” “What do I want right now?” “What would be my next right action?”
Have the pen ready for what comes. You can do it as a meditation in the morning or a note written before going to sleep at night. You can write the questions -and answers- with your non dominant hand for added insight.
Uranus in Taurus also goes direct at the New Moon on the 22nd. Uranus rules the Higher Mind and is the higher octave of Mercury. Taurus retrograde Uranus clues us in to deeper thoughts and ideas that help to refine what is valuable to us. How can we spend our precious time in a way that most suits us on all levels. How can we feed ourselves with ideas, habits and actual food that delight, nourish and serve. What is most delicious to us? Can we move toward more of those foods, experiences, feelings, relationships and practices.
Preparing for the journey on all levels is an integral part of embarking on the journey.
It is all a part of the trip.
CAPRICORN NEW MOON
Capricorn New Moon 2022
The last new Moon of the year is on December 23 at 5:16 AM EST 1 degree 32 minutes Capricorn.
The North Node and Uranus nearly conjunct in Taurus
make an earth trine to The Sun, Moon, Venus, Mercury, and Pluto all in close degree Capricorn. This gives a soothing quality to this new Moon.
Jupiter has completed its 12-year cycle and starts another round by moving into Aries.
Jupiter makes a Cardinal square to the Sun/Moon conjunction in Capricorn.
We may feel a rush of optimism and a sudden influx of ideas on how to structure projects that may have eluded us. We may feel a new beginning energy. Mars is still retrograde in Gemini so the surge of renewed energy will come from within. The gifts that may have been residing at the back of the mind or nestled behind a rib emerge from hiding.
On December 29th, Mercury will station retrograde at 24 degrees Capricorn conjunct Pluto and Virgo. Memories may resurface to add just the puzzle piece we need to give progress our plans.
This highlights building a life that is based on what we love and value with Uranus conjunct the N Node in Taurus.
Uranus can shake things up a bit like a cat climbing the holiday decorations. Which baubles and bells and songs and traditions do we hold dear and which ones can be shaken loose? What freedom comes from releasing things we kept because they were a gift? What peace comes from spending holiday time in the way we choose – not by the dictates of habit and duty?
Remember Capricorn rules. It exerts authority and puts down laws and commandments. Capricorn even rules over how we spend our precious time! Capricorn’s ruler, Saturn, is at 21 degrees Aquarius urging us to take dominion over our individual space, time, bodies, thoughts, and activities.
With the trine to Uranus and N. Node in Taurus it is time to honor our own values, our own time, and our internal beloved traditions.
Of course kindness and generosity are always in season. It is recommended - with this astrological configuration - to offer kindness and a spirit of generosity to the self first. This will radiate outward from the cherished heart – our own cherished heart, to those we meet along the way.
Feed the core of love in the personal heart first. This is how the emanation that comes can feed the many.
Think how hot the fire is at the center and how that burning warms those who come near with outstretched palms.
Hold the hands over the heart at this full moon. Thank it for beating time for the life all throughout the year. See the flame of love it gives to you. Feel that energy radiate throughout the body. See the light emanate outward to light the room, the house, the garden. See the heart’s light glow beyond the town, beyond the country, beyond the seas and beyond the galaxy.
Capricorn rules structure and boundaries. Experience, starting with the human heart, the power of the light that shines beyond imagining.
Rest there, feeling the heart and feeling it’s expansion. We can do it in the blink of an eye and it can affect all eternity.
Happy Holidays to you.
May your light within illuminate the way. ❤️🐐🌑☀️🪐
December 07th, 2022
SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON
SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON
The November 2022 new Moon is on 23 November 5:57 PM EST at 01 degree 37 minutes Sagittarius.
Venus an Mercury are widely conjunct the new Moon at 09 and 10 degrees Sag respectively.
What we love and value - and what we think - will be greatly affecting our intuition and larger belief systems this new Moon.
Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign. New Moons are a letting go to make way for new beginnings or more often a rekindling or reigniting.
In Sagittarius, the fire of freedom is a real focus.
Is what we are doing enhancing the experience of personal freedom to believe and act in keeping with our own value system, ideals an intuitive urging?
Sagittarius is linked with natural law.
Natural law is a river flowing as it sees fit and nurturing the environment and all of the lives in that environment as it goes along.
A dam interferes with natural law. The water is not allowed to flow as it sees fit. It is not free to nurture the landscape and its creatures as it goes. It has been corralled to serve the convenience of men.
The heart and mind of the individual can be rounded up by governments, families, schools, and corporations in a similar way.
Sagittarius reminds the individual that the water (as blood) running through its veins yearns for liberation and the natural flow of life.
Have a look at your own natal chart and see which house Sagittarius inhabits. See where Jupiter lives by birth and by transit in your chart. Have a look at the aspects being made to Sag and Jupiter in the chart to see where the urge for freedom, fun and the guidance of natural law are playing out in your chart.
Jupiter is at 28 degrees of Pisces on the new Moon – stationing before it resumes forward motion on 24 November.
Jupiter is completing a 12 year cycle and a new one will start in Aries on the Solstice – 21 December.
So we have a once in 12 years opportunity over the next month to go within, look at what parts of us have been locked away, indoctrinated, and institutionalized (all Pisces things). Where can we sit with those parts of ourselves that have been marginalized, vilified, and ignored. Can we sit in love with those locked away bits and give them some love – a kind word, understanding, and inclusion? How do we bring a stray cat out of a dark and damp corner?
How do we entice the hidden bits of our natural selves to come sit in the couch – ratty hair and all?
Mars is widely opposing the Sun moon Mercury and Venus. It is retrograde at 21 degrees Gemini. Gemini is the natural polarity to Sagittarius. Mars is making a mutable square to Neptune and Jupiter. We are able to make a kinesthetic – Gemini rules the nervous system – connection to our dreams hopes, wishes, and desires with the optimism of which o of those dreams might actually makes us happy and which ones could really just bog us down.
A new Moon is always a good time to stop! And look within. Check in with the heart, mind and body to see if the way we are spending our precious time is in keeping with our personal values, beliefs and internal natural law.
What part is being dammed up and restrained?
Are we internally running around in circles while we sit quietly in a chair tap tapping at the keyboard to pay the bills?
Jump up! Run around! Hippity hop! Take a day off! Buy something pretty! Do what you love!
What makes the heart swell like a wave before a storm?
What makes the heart constrict and shrink into a wizened grape?
Tap into what is really going on inside.
Do something fun! Do what you want! Enjoy!
The Taurus in me says Safety first! But still!
Buy that thing. Do that hobby. Eat that favorite biscuit. Laugh really loudly at that guilty pleasure TV show.
Jupiter is EXPANSION. Where have we made ourselves small to keep the job? To keep the peace?
Our personal natural design is just right if all of the colors in our painting haven’t been allowed to fill in because we think “orange just looks weird there.” Allow the orange to be filled in! Finish the picture. When we step back we may just see that that bright spot illuminates the whole painting.
That piece of ourselves that we may have deemed unpalatable to others and to ourselves may be JUST WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS RIGHT NOW! It more importantly may be just what you need right now.
Bring the self into the light. Include the outlying bits of the personality, the intellect, the belief system, the physical body, into the light of the Self. Breathe into the whole of you. Breathe out the judgement.
Break down the dam and flow.
Lots of love,
TAURUS FULL MOON ECLIPSE
TAURUS FULL MOON ECLIPSE
The full Moon eclipse occurs on 8 November at 16 degrees Taurus. It is exactly conjunct Uranus. Um. Yikes. The North Node is just a touch off the conjunction at 13 degrees Taurus. Close enough.
Uranus is the revolutionary. It is technology. It is genius flashing out of the ether into the human mind and nervous system. In Taurus, Uranus is shaking our personal tree to see what we stand for and what needs to be shaken loose and released. What do we value enough to dig our roots in and stand tall for?
It also helps us to raise our personal vibration up and out of the mire that is much of current earthly existence. Uranus works from a place of detachment. More benefit can often be given when rising above and radiating the energy of the best for all. It is free and can be done at any time by anyone with the consciousness and willingness to do so.
The Sun in Scorpio is cuddled up to by Mercury and Venus on either side. The South Node is not too far off.
Scorpio and Taurus are two fixed powerhouses.
Forceful and often unmovable. What we decide to do think and feel at this time can be done with conviction.
In other news, Jupiter is now retrograde in late degrees of Pisces for a short spell – until 24 November. If there is some internal expansion that needs final touches now would be the time… the weathervane atop the house in one’s dreams, the visualization that starts to feel more and more real. Jupiter will start a new 12-year cycle in Aries on the Solstice – December 21.
Mars, who is spending an exceptionally long time in one sign — Gemini – is now retrograde until 12 January 2023. Gemini is a mutable air sign. How we think about certain things we may have held as personal truths are up for reexamination depending on what house Mars is inhabiting in your chart. We have some time to connect dots and have a look at what ideas and mental methods we’ve collected are useful and contribute to an enhanced life experience and which ones can be cast into the winds.
Mars will remain in Gemini until 26 March 2023. Mars is important always, as it’s what drives our human vehicle around in the physical body on the earth plane. Mars is to be attended to now, at this Full Moon Eclipse, as it is the lower octave of Pluto, Scorpio’s ruler.
Pluto invites and evolves the transformational journey of the soul. Mars in Gemini retrograde holds the ideas, thoughts, agendas and common beliefs that can be organized to move our souls evolution along. If we let go of thoughts that no longer serve at this time, the entity is freed up to adopt new practices and thoughts that help us, that nourish us, that allow us to walk more into the life we really do want.
We move next into the Sun in Sagittarius time on Nov. 23 when our day to day thoughts become even more inspired by our deeper beliefs and intuition. As Jupiter rules Sagittarius, this time is in preparation of how we unfold in the days and weeks leading up to the solstice.
Mercury, Gemini’s ruler, is conjunct the Scorpio Sun at the full moon adding the impact of personal truth, revelation, empowerment and transformation through the right use, personally, of the information and the mind. Feeling jangled? Think better thoughts. 😊 Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury so being mindful of the thoughts we think and the words we speak can truly shift the course of our lives. The power of the thought and word at this time is key to transformation, evolution and having a valuable life.
The Taurus Full Moon can guide each person to connect with what ideas, plans, visions, actions and relationships make us feel good. What do we truly value most?
This is not what we have been told to value but what we truly value in the quiet privacy of our own heart and mind. What makes us feel safe and at home? Adventure is more easily undertaken when we know what home base of the heart feels like. Feel into the love of self now.
