      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: July Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: July Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

      The full moon rising in Capricorn on Sunday marks a partial lunar eclipse for our little world, which will be visible to the Americas and the Westernmost parts of Africa and Europe. While lunar eclipses are typically associated with revealing our shadow selves, an eclipse in the constellation Capricorn indicates a time for hope, happiness, and good fortune. It will also impact our ability to be more open-minded: remember that nothing is as it seems in the light of a lunar eclipse. 


      Like the last lunar eclipse we experienced, work-life balance will come into sharp focus. You may still be experiencing tension in this area—which wouldn’t be abnormal given the position of the stars! We hope you were able to heed our advice from last month, and took time to consider where your time and energy is best spent. Remember that self care is just as important right now to keep up your stamina, and taking time for yourself can help preserve your energy in the future. We highly recommend taking time to recharge before you burnout—for a quicker recovery.


      At Mexicali, we have found a bit of extra time to get important tasks done by reorganizing our priorities. We’ve even found more time to make room for important conversations with our amazing team and long-time customers who have expressed their appreciation for our new in-store policies! In times like these, the little moments of appreciation and reflection go a long way, and we are forever grateful for the support of our Mexicali community.


      This month’s lunar eclipse brings a few big cosmic players into the field. Mercury and Uranus are in the game, and will influence your communication for the better. Although Mercury is still in retrograde (which is generally perceived to have a negative impact on our communication), be comforted in knowing that this month’s planetary cycle won’t bring the same anxiety it usually does, in part due to the position of Uranus. Together, these two planets can influence powerful conversations meant to stimulate our psyche and help us tackle hard-to-learn truths. 


      You may also find that you are more open to having conversations with those previously considered a rival. If you find yourself in this position, remember that the universe is always on your side when it comes to personal growth, and that this lunar eclipse is prime time for resolving conflict and embracing new relationships.

      Don’t forget: kindness is key!

      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.

      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!

      JULY 12TH 2018 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      JULY 12TH 2018 ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON + SOLAR ECLIPSE IN CANCER

      Eclipse season begins today with a New Moon and partial solar eclipse in Cancer! This eclipse is the first of three this summer, with the following two coming July 27th and August 11th. Solar eclipses are always a time of change, shaking and waking up parts of your life that have been stagnant, whether you’re ready and expecting it or not! These powerful lunations will all be dancing on the axis of Cancer-Capricorn, drawing our attention to issues like: dependency vs. self-sufficiency, emotion vs. reality, comfort vs. responsibility, or mother vs. father. Maybe it brings up issues with our own parents, or the way we self-parent ourselves as adults.

      Cancer (ruled by the beautiful and benevolent Moon) represents the mothering, nurturing side of our personalities, while Capricorn (ruled by stern and strict Saturn) represents the fathering, disciplining side. Cancer values emotional safety and comfort above all else, doing whatever it takes to make us feel OK, often using patterns and behaviors that have worked in the past to relieve emotional discomfort. Capricorn values self-sufficiency more than vulnerability, and would rather show us how to be stronger and more skilled in order to take better care of ourselves in the future. These two contrasting approaches compliment one another when in balance, but it’s very hard to be completely balanced where emotion vs. pragmatism is concerned! The best we can do, at this juncture, is to try to treat ourselves lovingly while keeping the bigger picture in mind—recognizing that there can be no true nurturing without discipline, and that our goals and ambitions do also need to be tempered with self-care.

      At this New Moon, we are guided to a rebirth of some kind. We are asked to honor the changes that have taken place within us over the past few years of cosmic and earthly upheaval, and to reassess who we are now and what we truly want for our lives at this point. Is it time to stop walking a path that we’ve been on for a long time that no longer serves us? Is it time to release habits that once brought us comfort but have outlived their usefulness? If you've been neglecting an aspect of your life, you can expect it to come to the surface during this eclipse cycle. . . so whatever pops up, you're being called to consider it in this context. As this is just the first of the Cancer Eclipses, the energy and exploration that we begin to experience now is going to continue to grow and develop over the next couple of months, leading us to reach new heights and learn new things. Just as the crab outgrows its shell, we, too, are in the process of shedding an old way of being and stepping forward into a more mindful, healthy, and positive future.
