      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!
