      May 22: ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Gemini

      May 22: ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Gemini

      The new moon of May rises in Gemini and is trine Saturn this year. It brings a new beginning and a period of restructuring, building and growth. If there are loose ends to tie up, the energy is right for it in this lunar cycle. Before you get too far into rebuilding, make sure you have a solid plan and your tools in place. With Saturn in the picture, there’s an added aura of responsibility that can help advance your goals.

      Intense and transient energies are in the air leading up to the new moon so we suggest you pause before reacting to inflammatory situations. Study your behavior and recognize where your feelings are coming from. This will help balance your more wild tendencies, something air signs can all appreciate.

      Gemini has an abundant amount of jittery energy that compels people to socialize and break outside of their comfort bubble. Luckily we have some stabilizing energy from a trine with Saturn which is keeping us grounded. That free-spirit summer attitude we all usually feel around this time of year is going to be calmed by our friend Saturn, who has more pragmatic and patient tendencies. Saturn will help us contain our extravagant feelings or ideas and impulses to help us make a goal plan.

      Mars is included in this trine and gives us the motivation to follow through with our goals. In terms of our relationships, Mars can also provide inflammatory energy that can wreak havoc if not monitored closely. Breathe before you respond to triggering questions or proposals. If you find yourself running hot, step back and cool down before engaging further.

      With Venus retrograde in Gemini (ruled by Mercury) we urge you to be cautious and look closely into your desires. Find what you love and follow a plan to educate yourself on how to bring more of that wholesome energy into your life. Learning is supported during this new moon but there is danger in the cosmos with Neptune closely involved. Neptune’s ever-changing and tumultuous energy will have us questioning the information at hand, which can distract us from the truth and further disengage us from our determined path.

       

      Coming up:

       We have a full moon lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on June 5th! Check back in to see what that means and know which planets are going retrograde.

      March 9th ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL (SUPER) MOON in VIRGO

      March 9th ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL (SUPER) MOON in VIRGO

      The full moon this month rests in the constellation of Virgo. It is the first of three super moons in 2020 and is known in the Southern USA as the Worm Moon! This is due to the amount of earthworms present with the ground thawing. Of course, in Maine, it’s usually too early for us to start planting any seeds. In the Northern half of the US, we like to refer to the March full moon as the Sap Moon! It’s almost time to start tapping those trees to get that sweet sweet nectar. If you are looking for a good place to do this we love taking advantage of Maine Maple Sunday! Go to their site for a full list of farms taking part in this legendary super event!

      If you’re feeling an overwhelming urge to organize some of the chaos in your life, we are right there with you. With a full moon in Virgo, you’ve likely been dreaming up wild fantasies and need to kick back into reality. A little bit of Spring cleaning might be just what you need to get control of things again. 

      What is a SUPER MOON? It happens several times a year when the Moon’s orbit brings it closer to Earth. It becomes about 14% larger in our night sky and can up to 30% brighter. Why isn’t the Moon’s orbit a perfect circle? Because of gravity! It’s not only Earth’s gravity that has a hold on our lunar beauty. The sun and all the planets have a gravitational force pushing and pulling on the moon.

      If you’re lucky enough to watch the moon rise you will bear witness to the “moon illusion.” This is when the moon appears to be significantly bigger when it rises higher into our night sky. Scientists say that this has nothing to do with astronomy but instead on how our brains process these visual puzzles. Since the moon is closer to the horizon we can more easily compare the size of it to landmarks that are familiar to us. When it’s higher in the sky that distance and space make us think it is further away.

      FEBRUARY 9th ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON

      FEBRUARY 9th ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON

       

      Rising on the ninth of this month, the Full Moon of February is also known as the Snow, Storm, or Hunger Moon. Up here in Maine that will make sense to a lot of us but these names go back further than we may realize.

      The Native Americans of the North East referred to it by these names because of the harsh winters Maine is known for. Those storms would make it more difficult to hunt or gather food, thus naming it the Hunger Moon. It's no wonder we stock up our pantries before each storm. The timing of our recent and long awaited snow squall definitely has us looking at our star charts. 

      The Moon will be in Leo for the weekend and will provide ample energy and light, making it a great time act on instinct. But we warn you to be safe and take caution. There's an air of drama that tags along with this lunar phase which can lead to conflict. Use this energy as a catalyst to jump into new activities!

      With Venus rising in Pisces it is a good time to nourish your relationships. If there is tension now is the time to address it in a respectful and nurturing manner. The goal is to seek harmony and balance. 

       

      Here's what every sign needs to know for this month's Snow Moon:

       

      Aries- Venus is in your sign! Look for new relationships or take extra time to put extra love and attention into one you have. Don't be afraid to open up and jump in.

       

      Taurus- Be adventurous! Whether it’s in love or if you’re looking at a list of goals you haven’t acted on yet. This is YOUR time!

       

      Gemini- Recognition is coming for you! It’s clear that you’ve been working hard but don’t let it get to your head. Take time to settle in to your new routine and don’t splurge with your sudden success.

       

      Cancer- Take this opportunity to change things up! Don’t let yourself get stuck in the same routine you’ve been in. It’s important to be in control of what YOU want.

       

      Leo- If anyone can find guidance this month it’s you. Let the lunar energy guide you- listen to yourself and trust your instincts.

       

      Virgo- Break down those rigid walls and introduce new healthy habits! Change your workout routine or start that drawing class you’ve been wanting to try.

       

      Libra- Communication is key. Take those feelings of gratitude for your loved ones and let them know. This will help you feel more connected, even if there is distance.

       

      Scorpio- It’s time for hygge! Be comfortable and use this energy and power to accomplish your goals.

       

      Sagittarius- Does it feel like everything is in place? Use this to boost your confidence and take on a new opportunity.

       

      Capricorn- Your strong-headedness is definitely at the forefront and the energy might even feel overwhelming. Roll with it but be cautious of how you affect others.

       

      Aquarius- Don’t hold back because this is your time for fulfillment in your relationships. Find a friend in Leo- they will help you.

       

      Pisces- Don’t get carried away. Your season is almost here and that’s giving you an electric energy source. Use it wisely and invest in yourself and experiences over possessions.

       

      Remember to check back in for our next lunar interpretation for the approaching New Moon!

      JANUARY 10TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON & LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      JANUARY 10TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON & LUNAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      It’s a Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Cancer today! With the sun conjunct Mercury, this eclipse brings our attention to communication, although that communication is anything but clear. We’re feeling emotional and having difficulty making sense of what we hear. It’s also a big time of false communication being put forth by unreliable sources, so CHECK YOUR FACTS before you believe what you’re told. We are easily mislead by words that activate our emotional biases, and the eclipse opposite Pluto makes us extra vulnerable to being manipulated and controlled. We need to be careful to not get carried away and overly convinced by anything external right now. If something is true today, it will still be true in a week when we can process it with more reasoned understanding.
       
      While communication from and with others can be confusing, there is deep clarity to be found when we look within. Where have we been ignoring the truth of our hearts in order to satisfy the needs of others? We are each being called to connect with our intuition and move towards our purpose on this planet. How do we connect with this when we’re feeling oh-so-emotional? Lean into somatic practices that can help you come back into your body and move through whatever is coming up. Maybe that’s yoga, EFT tapping, dance, rolling around on the floor, or taking a hot bath. Allow any feelings that arise to be with you, without judgement. Whatever you’re experiencing now is ok, and no emotion is permanent. It is important to not repress or deny your feelings, and you are invited to look at them with curiosity rather than being swept away. See what you can learn, and write down any insights you think you may want to take with you into the future. <3

      DECEMBER 26TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN

      DECEMBER 26TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CAPRICORN

      Today brings a New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Capricorn, calling us to build new beginnings and create practical goals. Capricorn energy is clear and focused, and invites us to make realistic plans for what we want to manifest in the coming year. The sun and moon are conjunct Jupiter––the planet of abundance and luck––bringing opportunities, optimism, and good fortune your way.
       
      To follow those Jupiterian good vibes and get aligned on your right path, think about what makes you feel optimistic and free AND ALSO where these things overlap with your natural skills. Saturn-ruled Capricorn shows us our limitations, which sounds like a total drag, but recognizing and accepting our limits can actually free us. When we’re dreaming not of some Pinterest-perfect version of our lives, but fully focused on the unique things that light us up, we can be real about who we are, where we are, and where we want to go.
       
      If we’ve been holding on to something that isn’t totally right for us, it is likely to end now in order for something better to begin. This is an ideal time to make a fresh start and to question old habits, as we lay down an intentional foundation for growth and progress. Personal evolution is coming, whether you’re ready or not, so look forward with anticipation and be clear about what you want. <3
