      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON IN LIBRA

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON IN LIBRA

      The Libra Full Moon rises on March 28th, 2021, the first moon in Aries Season and the marking of the first moon cycle of the astrological year! 

      The Influence of Libra on the Moon:

      The seventh astrological sign is known for being balanced and just. Those ruling under this sign are thought to be sociable beings and usually quite rational in the way they approach challenges or daily activities. Use this energy to see where balance can be restored in your life.


      Regardless of what your moon sign is, chances are you’ll feel the impact of Libra’s influence on our lunar beauty. You may find yourself eager to patch up old quarrels and extend the metaphorical olive branch. We caution anyone who feels the need to become a mediator between two opposing parties to do so with care. Stepping into someone else’s mess can sometimes cause more harm than good should you not be equipped with the right tools. Instead, take an introspective look at the areas within your direct control to see if balance can be restored. 

       

      What this moon means for Fire Signs; Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

      This might be a moment where you can find it easier to see where the other side is coming from. You’re a great communicator, so if there is a discussion you’ve been longing to have, now is a great time to hold space for it. While not everyone is suited to be the peacemaker, your compassion and genuine kindness can be a great asset in these moments. 

       

      What this moon means for Earth Signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn:

      The recent time you’ve taken to dig deep for fulfillment is paying off. Now that you’ve come to understand your needs more clearly, see where you can take small moments to return the balance of work and play into your daily routine. Double check to make sure you’re within budget because giving too much time to either will leave you feeling drained both emotionally and financially. 

       

      What this moon means for Air Signs; Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

      Your dreams and aspirations are close at hand and now is the moment to take charge of your own path. Make your needs known in both your personal and professional life. Gently show those who have overlooked your contributions that you won't be held back by their inability to see past their own egos. 

       

      What this moon means for Water Signs; Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

      This moment is about family and spending time with those who matter most to you. Slow down and express your gratitude to the ones in your life who support your most fanciful dreams. Thank the ones who know to respect the boundaries you’ve given and show them this gesture does not go unnoticed.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Aries Seasonal Horoscopes

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Aries Seasonal Horoscopes

      Welcome to Aries season, the most wonderful and hopeful time of year as far as we’re concerned. We kick off this period of good energy on March 21st when the Sun enters into the Aries constellation. We’re happy to report that there won’t be any planets in retrograde during our first weeks of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere, which means it’s full steam ahead for all your hopes and dreams! 

      Be the Ram and trail-blaze through any small challenges that present themselves and take advantage of every moment to revel in the power and determination that you’ve found within yourself. This is the time of new beginnings and the perfect time to harness that clean energy which has the power to fill yourself and others with passion and purpose.


      Aries (March 21-April 19)

      Have you been lost in your own head the past few weeks and deep diving into memories? If you have, it’s a good thing because these moments of reflection have given you some time and perspective to process and prepare for the changes to come. With a clear image of the past you are fully able to dive into the next period of growth which is awaiting you. 


      Taurus (April 20-May 20)

      We hope you’ve been able to reconnect with some of the positive relationships in your life over the past few weeks. The reconnection and healing is crucial for the next phase of transformation that is coming your way. If something or someone doesn’t feel quite right, sit with it a minute and explore where that energy is coming from. Is there anything within your power to bring more positivity to the room?


      Gemini (May 21-June 20)

      You’re almost at that point where you have a clear vision of where you’re going, sweet Gemini. The journey is always important, so do your best to stay open to different paths that may present themselves at the last moment. Remember to focus on what brings you joy and to lead with kindness and love. Remember that you’re more than what people see on the surface.


      Cancer (June 21-July 22)

      In Pisces season we spoke about the changes you’re experiencing, and we know it can be difficult to see some of these transformations in the moment. If you take some time to reflect on where you were just a few weeks ago, then we think you’ll appreciate just how far you’ve come.


      Leo (July 23-August 22)

      You’ve gotta keep on truckin’ through the last small hurdles this season. We know it can be a challenge, but this is a fleeting moment and soon you will be ready for any obstacle you encounter in the astrological year ahead. Find the light in quiet contemplation and keep powerful healing crystals by your side since they can support you more than you know.


      Virgo (August-September 22)

      With the new astrological year afoot, you’ve been given the tools you need to succeed in your professional life as well as your personal one. There is some powerful energy at play that will highlight and support the love you are meant to give and receive. Be open to the signs and you will be rewarded beyond belief.


      Libra (September 23-October 22)

      Good job clearing out the negativity from your environment the past few weeks; it has undoubtedly been a challenge for your easy-going soul. Focus that commitment inwards and do a deep cleanse of the internalized expectations you’ve set for yourself. You can now relax and revel in the playful atmosphere and groove with your own cosmic vibrations. 


      Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

      Those real talks with the important people in your life have been healing and beneficial in ways you might not even see yet. We hope you can take a step back to appreciate the love and positivity that has come from it and encourage you to support the ones who need it most.


      Sagittarius (November 22-December21)

      If you haven’t already received a boost of positivity and some wicked good news, then keep focused on the task at hand. It will come when the universe knows you’re ready for it and no sooner. Stay grounded and keep your perspective in check because we know what happens when you get too carried away. 


      Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

      Sometimes it’s easy to advocate for others but don’t forget to do the same for yourself on your journey. You’ve done a lot to get to where you are, so make sure those around you know it–without giving a haughty impression to those with the power and might change their decision. It’s a delicate balance but we know you’re capable of navigating it with grace.


      Aquarius (January 20-February18)

      Let your creativity guide you into a place of healing and transformation in the coming months. It won't hurt to reconnect with the natural world and use those precious moments to ponder the wonders of the universe and imbue the cosmos’ endless possibilities into your own adventure.


      Pisces (February 19-March 20)

      You may feel like you’re at the beginning again, but instead of letting that be a burden to your sense of progress, think of it as the next stepping stone in your journey. Who says there’s one direction you’re meant to go? As long as you’re seeking out experiences that bring you joy, there’s no stopping you from achieving your dreams.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN PISCES

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN PISCES

      

      The Pisces New Moon rises on Saturday, the 13th of March. The last moon cycle of the winter season, this new moon marks the beginning of a new cycle.  It’s the perfect time to look back at what you’ve been able to accomplish, and set intentions for where you’d like to grow in this new twenty-eight day cycle!


      The Influence of Pisces on the Moon:

      The Moon represents our internal drives and characteristics while drawing out the unconscious tendencies of how we interact with the world around us. It is often thought to represent our emotional journey through the cosmos.

      There’s a stellium at play this month folks, so sit back and enjoy the ride. A stellium is when a group of powerful planets appears to cluster together from our perspective, which can be a rare occurrence in the cosmos since each planet is on a different trajectory around our sweet sun. Being aware of these groupings and knowing each planet’s relationship to one another can help us understand our own emotions and triggers. We know that this is a powerful time for us to embrace our soft and sensitive sides, indulge in our creative passions, and lead with love.

      Luckily, for the rest of the month we don’t have any planets entering retrograde which means it’s smooth sailing for a few more weeks. Pisces is surrounding our lunar goddess with emotive and spiritual vibes, giving us the power to lean into the softness and creativity of our inner beings. Mercury will enter Pisces just two days after the new moon on March 15th, which will help aid us in making up for the lack of communication skills we’ve been experiencing as of late.


      What this moon means for Fire Signs; Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

      The focus and determination you put forth during the last cycle have helped guide you to where you need to be now. Dive deep into the pool of self-discovery to learn who you truly are meant to be without the burden of all the baggage you’ve been carrying. 


      What this moon means for Earth Signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn:

      It’s all about embracing your softer side so you can flourish in the company of someone new. Someone who sees the true value of your presence. This is your perfect moment to invest in meaningful connections and to let your guard down. If you have trust in your passions and it is sure to benefit more than just yourself.


      What this moon means for Air Signs; Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

      You did the hard work last cycle to gear up for the manifestation of your next path and now you’re ready to set plans in motion. That doesn’t mean you should set aside the work you’ve been doing to improve your self-care, so don’t lose sight of your needs while gearing up for big change. Listen closely to the natural signs your body might be telling you. 


      What this moon means for Water Signs; Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

      We’re not surprised that you’re doing a great job of going with the flow with everything this moon energy is giving you. Don’t stress about the smaller details of making everything work–it will all settle into place when the time is right. For now, focus on what brings you true joy.

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Full Moon in Virgo

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Full Moon in Virgo

      We have a Virgo Full Moon flying in on the 27th of this month folks. With the end of this lunar cycle, we can concentrate our focus on the intentions we set for the New Moon and see what we can do to make motions to fulfill those goals or work to make progress for the next Full Moon.


      The Influence of Virgo on the Moon:

      The Moon represents our internal drives and characteristics while drawing out our unconscious tendencies of how we interact with the world around us. It is often thought to represent our emotional journey through the cosmos.


      You can expect to find comfort in small routines that usually go overlooked but make a world of difference when it comes time to conquer larger obstacles. Whether that means having all the dishes done before the heavy lifting of a big house project, or the simple act of balancing your checkbook (do people still do that?) which can bring peace of mind once it’s done. 


      If you’re feeling like you’re not accomplishing enough right now, or feel you’re destined for more, remember that these down moments are necessary. Take this time to get everything in order for when it’s time to make moves and really get down to business–because that time is coming sooner than you think!


      What this moon means for Fire Signs; Leo, Aries, Sagittarius:

      You may have to focus a little harder to get those typically mindless tasks done this cycle. We know you’re looking at the big picture, but don’t forget to shine some light on the details that will make your bigger plans come to life.


      What this moon means for Earth Signs; Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn:

      The ambition to better your position for growth is strong right now. Use this energy to be your true self and let that light pour over into the cups of those around you. While you’re indulging in this moment of bliss, be sure to make time to get the necessary tasks done.


      What this moon means for Air Signs; Gemini, Libra, Aquarius:

      We know we’ve been saying this over and over, but clearing out the clutter is extra important right now. It’s going to make room for what you truly need more of in life. Call a friend to help you through the process if you need and make time to check in with your mystical side. 


      What this moon means for Water Signs; Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces:

      It’s all about romance and communication for you right now, so take a close look at what the vibe is and be smart about the actions you make. If you’re giving too much of yourself and not getting back what you need, is it worth it?

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SCORPIO

       

      As we come to a close on this moon cycle and enter into the next, the New Moon in Scorpio marks a perfect time to begin something new. Whether it’s bringing a fresh burst of optimism to your outlook on current events, or something as simple as clearing away the clutter to make room for new projects, any small changes you can make to prepare will be beneficial to you and those you surround yourself with. 


      The Moon’s relationship to Pluto is driving us forward with increased momentum to achieve our goals, and as we said in our last horoscope update, this is being felt across the signs. Make room to spread out and grow into who you are meant to become. Be wary not to burn those who want to genuinely support you and make an extra effort to keep communication open with the ones you love. A sense of community is crucial to stay healthy through this period.


      In other celestial news, the Leonid meteor shower is peaking this weekend through Nov. 17th! If you can get outside to observe them, we recommend finding dark skies before dawn (when the constellation Leo is highest in the sky) for the best viewing opportunities. This particular meteor shower is visible most years, but intensifies when the Comet Tempel-Tuttle is close to Earth. According to historians, this causes a meteor “storm” rather than a “shower” due to the denser conglomerate of meteors surrounding the true comet. 


      In 1966 observers said they “almost needed to grip the ground,” because the sensation of Earth’s movement through space during the Leonid storm was so strong. Imagine! If it’s anything like the illustration we discovered below, we can see what they mean. The last perihelion (the closest point to the sun) was in 1998, so we will have to wait until 2031 until Tempel-Tuttle comes around again, but we’re happy to wait!

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON IN TAURUS

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON IN TAURUS

      Halloween night gives rise to the Blue Moon of October this year! Yes, it’s the second full moon of the month and we are lucky enough to have it with us on All Hallows Eve!


      Revolution is in the air with our second Blue Moon due to its proximity to Uranus. It might not mean revolution in the way you’re thinking of it however. Uranus represents unforeseeable change and these uncertainties may cause a sense of anxiety–but honestly, what hasn’t these days?


      During these strange moments, we remind you to embrace the moon cycle and think back to the goals you set at the new moon. The smallest of intentions can make the biggest difference when it comes to your goals and wellbeing. Sometimes it’s better to set smaller intentions because they can be more easily attainable. Try not to be discouraged by sudden changes or unexpected events–especially if it involves your close relationships. Those that are true and strong will always be there on the other side of a difficult time.


      Have understanding when it comes to a conflict of opinion and know that everyone is only acting out of their own experience. It is important for everyone to feel heard, understood and validated. Watch your actions and reactions closely to be sure you’re not taking this right away from anyone, even if their views don’t align with your own.


      All of this is possible this month because Mercury is still in Retrograde. Pay extra close attention to how you interact with those in your inner circle. The presence of a strong relationship with someone should not be taken for granted during this trying time. Show your support without expecting anything in return and if it’s necessary, give some space to those who might need it. 


      If you are still anxious, do some deep breathing exercises and have a good meal. As someone wise once said, “Never try to change the world on an empty stomach.” And remember that we're all in this together!
