      MARCH 20 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL SUPER MOON IN LIBRA

      MARCH 20 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL SUPER MOON IN LIBRA

      Happy Equinox! It’s a Super Full Moon in Libra tonight! Full Moons represent endings or culminations, and we are called to release something now. If there’s anything we’ve been re-viewing or re-evaluating during these Mercury Retrograde days, it’s the time to decide what we want to keep in our lives and what we don’t. Since this lunation is on the relationship axis of Aries-Libra polarity, it is likely that some of what comes up for us is going to be about the balance between meeting our personal needs and tending to those of someone else. Aries is self-assertive, courageous, and authentic. Libra is diplomatic, gracious, and compromising. Whether it’s with regard to a significant other, family, friends, or the way you spend your time, there is something to be learned now about how we internalize and/or address the conflict between the Aries and Libra ways of being. 

      Our relationship dynamics are a huge part of who we are, and we are called now to evaluate them in the context of how we want our lives to be. Which of our relationships lift us up, and which are draining? Are we meeting our relationship compatriots with confidence and integrity or are we being constantly triggered and regressing to immaturity in order to cope? What can we do to cultivate more of the former and address the latter? How would we like our relationships to be? Asking questions like these can yield some great insights under the light of the Full Moon, so we are invited to set aside the time to explore the answers by writing them down. We’re still in Mercury Retrograde, so we’re best served by re-assessing what we already have rather than trying to take on something new, although Uranus aspecting this Moon may bring surprising connections or events within our existing relationships. Try not to get to swept up in anything that comes suddenly, as the shape of it will likely change; focus on recognizing and analyzing patterns and history for the greatest positive change-making. 

      JANUARY 20TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO

      JANUARY 20TH ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: FULL MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO

      January 20th, 2019 brings us a Full Moon and total lunar eclipse in Leo! Squaring Uranus, the planet of upheaval, we may be feeling impulsive and moody especially when it comes to relationships. We are feeling prone to emotional outbursts and frustration with restrictions. This is not a good eclipse for making sudden changes.  Mercury is also square Uranus which makes mishaps in communication more likely, and ups the chances of receiving unexpected news. Uranus and Mercury’s paired influence may make life feel chaotic around you, like everything is moving and coming at you so fast that keeping up feels impossible. If you have the choice, avoid signing paperwork or reading through anything complicated where you need to have your eye on details; focus and concentration is probably a bit scattered at this time.

      What we thought we wanted in October-November may be very different today, and now is the time to check in and ask ourselves about that, and sit with whatever feelings this brings up. This could be kind of an uncomfortable transit, and we need to pay attention to the ways that we may be leaning into numbing out to make it easier. If we want to reap the biggest benefits from this powerful eclipse, we are best served by not indulging in whatever usually helps us numb ourselves (whether that’s drinking to excess, watching TV, texting exes who still flirt with you, or whatever your jam is to distract you from the discomfort you find in solitude). Creativity is heightened now, so you may be grounded and gratified by channeling your energies into an art project of some kind.

      Rather than focusing your attention on boldly stating your intentions, this lunation invites us to sit in stillness and listen for answers. Whatever shifts that come now are subtly felt now, but strong, and are taking us into a new cycle. Take a deep breath, be gentle with yourself, and stay flexible. <3

      DECEMBER 22ND ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL MOON IN CANCER

      DECEMBER 22ND ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL MOON IN CANCER

      The last Full Moon of 2018 is strong in her home of Cancer, sign of comfort, nourishment, and family.  How appropriate that this is also the holiday season, and we may find Cancerian themes like family dynamics and memories looming especially large. Cancer is one of the most sensitive signs, and we will definitely find our emotions are heightened. Be on guard for overreactions, especially when we feel threatened. The urge to employ defensiveness and passive aggression are likely to be high, but just try to remember that the moon is influencing these feelings and everyone is feeling a little extra tender. We’re all craving a feeling of safety, so look for gentle and caring ways to sooth yourself: get cozy, indulge in warm and comforting foods, take a luxurious bath, snuggle with someone you love, let go with a good cry.

      As this is the final Full Moon of the Year, this lunation will bring to light things that we will want to take with us into the new year and those we should leave behind. We will be feeling extra emotional and not super-rational, but our heightened gut-instinct powers will assist us in sussing out which relationships and environments make us feel good and which ones don’t. We may have heart-warming moments, and we may recognize how unsupportive other situations have been. If we discover unhealthy dynamics, we can leave those behind now. We are deeply connected to what we need, and find it easier to express ourselves in full truth (note: this is NOT what you say when you are angry, but what you say in calmness and integrity afterwards). This can lead to great growth within our relationships and in our attachment to them.

      Full Moons always create ending points, where we are guided to release something in order to journey forward into the new. This one is particularly powerful for concluding something because it takes place at Zero degrees Cancer, the exact point where this sign makes its transition from the last one into this. Zero degrees always marks initiation and change, and this will be the second of 5 Full Moons in a row all at the Zero degree point! There’s a lot of change coming, so take this opportunity to choose it consciously. A new year is almost upon us. Release any clinging to the ideas of what you have wanted to achieve in the past, and declare clearly what you aspire to NOW! <3


      NOVEMBER 23RD ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL MOON IN GEMINI

      Mexicali Blues Gemini Full Moon

      It’s a Gemini Full Moon tonight! Ruled by Mercury, the king of communication, this lunation calls us to pay attention to the power of what we say and how we say it. We may be fluttering around feeling more extroverted and talking with a variety of people, as we get in the holiday spirit and also bustle around preparing for winter. This very well might lead to new information coming to light that can shift the way we see something. We do need to remain aware, though, that Mercury currently in retrograde does tend to influence miscommunications, garbled messages, misunderstood information, and other ways that things tend to go unexpectedly. Our challenge in this situation is to take in what we hear, but not become stuck on one interpretation.  It is likely that decisions made now will require reworking later, or that whatever comes up will not be completed without more input. Perhaps old matters that you thought were finished will come up again for a second look.

      There is a pervasive feeling of information moving very fast right now, but it is in flux. We communicate with the intent to get somewhere, achieve or settle something, but the resting point we find will most assuredly shift. We are invited to dance lightly with all the exciting ideas, conversations, and philosophies that pique our interest, but be mindful to not be too judgmental or dogmatic when expressing our own points of view.  This can be a lovely whirlwind of enlivening social and mental action, but we must take care to not be carried away by our tempers, judgements, or impulsivity. Take time to remind yourself of and get grounded in whatever wise and compassionate values support your personal sovereignty (it’s a beautiful time to create a personal mantra!), and hold them in your heart before you speak. <3 

      OCTOBER 24TH ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: FULL MOON IN TAURUS

      taurus full moon mexicali blues

      Happy Full Moon in Taurus! In the steady and grounded sign of the peace-and-beauty-loving Venusian bull, this moon shines a light on the habits we've cultivated to comfort ourselves in an increasingly tumultuous world. Taurus gives us the strength and tenacity to achieve our goals, but also the stubbornness to cling to the familiarity of old ways. Conjuct Uranus, the planet of upheaval, we may become more aware at this time how finding our solace in worn out, unhealthy patterns or relationships has been holding us back from evolving. These recognitions may come--as Uranian effects tend to--as sudden lightning flashes of insight, illuminating truths we had kept hidden in the darkest depths of our consciousness. Opposite the sun in Scorpio, this Full Moon calls us to acknowledge the gremlins of our dark side that we spot creeping out of the shadows, and asks us to sit with them rather than ignoring or chasing them away. It is a good time to reflect on past experiences, make amends with the things that you don't like about yourself, and try to accept and celebrate the beauty of your individuality--erratic, emotional, illogical, imperfect, completely uniquely you. In accepting what we could not before, we transform. This lunation is a time for reconnecting with all aspects of ourselves, so we may move forward to a better future in centered strength and peace. <3
