      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 Rising in Pisces

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: Full Moon Rising in Pisces


      Last month we saw the New Moon enter into Leo and bring with it a whole bunch of energy! If you have been feeling that child-like energy about it’s been in part due to this. We can see a smooth transition into the full moon this month rising in Pisces on September 2nd.


      Yet again the Sun will be directly opposite the Moon so when you look for one, turn around and you’ll see the other as they continue their cosmic dance. As always this may help you analyze your close relationships and see what changes need to be made in order for them to be strong and lasting. 


      A common phrase in astrology is when planets are referred to as being sextile. This month the Full Moon is sextile Uranus which means they're positioned approximately sixty degrees apart. Though this is not quite as powerful as planets being trine to each other, it does bring harmony between the planets and creates room for positive growth. 

       

      Pay attention to Mars this week as it will square with Saturn and appear to slow down in orbit and move into retrograde. This is good news because Mars, the planet which represents all our fiery outrage and passion, will chill out for a minute and let us process what it is we might be so fired up about. It also gives us all a chance to listen to one another and hear the other side of a conversation we might have been too distracted to really pay attention to. It’s important to make that effort and hear what someone is saying so as to better understand how you can help make yourself heard in a positive and productive way. 


      On the 13th Mars, will come out of retrograde making it the perfect time to start in on your big project or the month. Hopefully, the conversations you’ve been having through the retrograde will allow you to choose more compassionate means in how you react with those who have differing opinions. 


      As always keep in mind what your spirit needs to maintain emotional wellness. We find it helps to take several minutes in the morning or evening to write down all the small things that caused even the smallest amount of stress. Once those moments are identified, work on a plan to see how you can remove that stressor from your life.


      Those of us at Mexicali Blues wish you the best and hope you’ll come back later this month for our interpretation of the New Moon on the 17th! And don’t miss our Labor Day Sale starting on Friday the 4th!


      Peace and love!

      Seasonal Horoscopes: Virgo is Upon Us!

      Seasonal Horoscopes: Virgo is Upon Us!

       

      As the Sun moves into Virgo this month we should all be aware of the critical tendencies that can overwhelm our day-to-day activities. Rather than becoming obsessed with a project and taking on too much, space out the work that needs to be done and take time to relax!


      Aries (March 21 – April 19)

      Make some time to step back and assess your situation from a different perspective. If there is improvement to be made in your work life see where small adjustments in your daily routine can help.


      Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

      Have you been feeling tense? Put any responsibilities you can on pause and take a break to recharge and refresh yourself!


      Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

      Alright butterflies, we know you’re STILL basking in the reverb of your season but it’s time to take inventory and do some housekeeping. Whether it’s your physical or mental space that needs a revamp, now is the time to start!


      Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

      Were you thinking about an online class? Did you find a new recipe you wanted to try? Don’t hesitate to dive into new projects because the stars are aligned to support you, so it’s the perfect time to invest in yourself!


      Leo (July 23 – August 22)

      If you find yourself strapped for cash, it might be time to evaluate your expenses. See where you can prune on spending and start saving for that meaningful purchase! Keep in mind that having financial security might help relax going into this new season.


      Virgo (August – September 22)

      Woah! We can see you shining from here! As you begin the next year of your journey be aware of how far you’ve come and what you have learned. Dive deep and find out how those new skills can help you and your community advance in a meaningful way!


      Libra (September 23 – October 22)

      Take time now to rest in preparation, and to work on coming to peace with any uncertainties and insecurities you may have. Reach out to your friends for any support if you feel the need.


      Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

      The Virgo Sun is a supportive energy that can help you to organize and make connections with those who have the same dreams. Make a plan and use that support and encouragement to make moves! 


      Sagittarius (November 22 – December21)

      If you’re feeling comfortable in your day-to-day routine, then it’s time to mix things up! Take on some new responsibility and see how the Virgo Sun can assist in achieving the recognition that you deserve!


      Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

      Your drive and determination is highlighted in the Virgo sunshine! Take this extra boost to consider and explore all available paths toward making your dreams come true. Use the tools available to you to find the outcome you desire.


      Aquarius (January 20 – February16)

      This has been quite the year for you! The Virgo Sun is going to shine a light on the aspects of life you’ve been pushing aside to sort out later. While these emotions are coming to the surface, do your best to explore them with an open heart rather than using logic to board them back up.

       

      Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

      There’s an imbalance in your life and it’s time to pay attention to it. Think of this as an opportunity to gain active listening skills and put them to use– regardless of whether you need to listen to others, or the voice within. You have support, you just need to ask for it with kindness and love!
