      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Leo

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: New Moon in Leo

       

      When the Sun enters into the zodiac of Leo you know life is about to get a little heated. The features and characteristics of this fiery sign are only enhanced as our lunar beauty continues to orbit around us. But what happens when that light isn’t being reflected back at us in the night sky? As the New Moon approaches on the evening of the 18th, take note of your inner light and see how it glows while you’re surrounded by that darkness.


      This is the perfect time to do some soul searching and dive into the conversations or projects that you don’t normally have the mind space to grapple with. Now that the fog has cleared and some of the other looming tasks in your life are out of the way, you can clear up misunderstandings or reschedule the plans that were put on the back burner. Maybe there’s a project you’ve been wanting to start but never seem to have the right energy? This is the time to go for it!


      If you find you’re feeling more burnt out than you’d like during this lunar cycle then look to Mars. The red planet is extra active in our skies right now and you might even notice some increased anxiety. It’s most likely because you can finally see the broader picture and all the moving pieces don’t look so blurry now. See this as an opportunity to let this energy in and become a helpful rhythm. Let it influence you and reset you, giving you  a new balanced perspective.


      Consider setting aside some time this week to indulge in an activity at the same time every day to build a routine you can rely on. We suggest a mindful meditation moment or even a simple walk around your neighborhood. This can help as we transition into a new season and are required to experience what was once so normal in an entirely different way. 


      Remember that the Leo light is helping to support you in the absence of the moon’s glow and that this period is always an ideal time to recharge and prepare to start something new!

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: July 20 New Moon in Cancer

      ASTROLOGY + ENERGY: July 20 New Moon in Cancer

      Monday marks the night of the Cancer new moon which will be opposite Saturn in the night sky. As we know, the new moon marks the beginning of a new cycle. We’ve all gone through so much in the past moon cycle and it is important to be born into this one with new or continued purpose. Stay focused on your goals whether you aim to make change or rest your being for the challenges ahead. 


      Saturn has the most impact on our shy celestial beauty this month because it is facing the moon  head on, as you can see in the chart above. You may experience limitations and restrictions keeping you from achieving your true goal. Don’t be fooled by your own internal monologue saying it can’t be achieved and remember that we are usually our own worst enemy when it comes to self doubt. Rise above that authoritative voice and seek the support you need.


      We understand that the ebb and flow of not only your personal agenda but that of society can be draining. We’d like to revisit our reading from the last full moon and again emphasize the importance of taking care of you and yours. By doing this you can also help bring peace to those around you. 


      There are parts of this universe that can still be celebrated and we urge you to seek out those moments. A sunset by the lake or a quiet meditation can help you to focus on your thoughts and true desires. Investing your time in a project you can accomplish on your own might be just the confidence boost or drive you are looking for. 


      We will be supported by the fixed star Procyon this cycle for it can influence our ability to take action on thoughts that may have been swimming around our subconsciousness. Be wary though, if too much energy is focused from this star it can lead us to take action without a plan. Do not give into impulsive behavior under the new moon and instead wait for the evening glow to come back to our night sky.  


      Tune back in next month for insight into the August full moon!

      June 21st: ENERGY + ASTROLOGY: New Moon + Solar Eclipse in Cancer

      June 21st: ENERGY + ASTROLOGY: New Moon + Solar Eclipse in Cancer

       

      With a solar eclipse and new moon happening simultaneously this gives off more power and influence in the skies. If you take a look at the star chart below, you’ll see the Sun and Moon next to each other which is called “Sun conjunct Moon.” This is one of the most influential blends of powers in the sky, and draws focus on the personal areas of your life. What happens in the skies is reflected in your own life—you may find yourself focused on your personal relationships, and the important women in your life come into sharper focus. If there are past grievances to heal, now is the time to reach out. You may find that an old friend wants to make amends during this time. Be sure to respond with openness and without hatred in your heart, for no healing or learning can take place otherwise.


       

      There’s no doubt there’s a sense of imbalance in our lives right now. The planets are encouraging us to focus on the importance of flexibility and our ability to adapt as humans. If you’re feeling unwell, taking time off of work to heal has the potential to cause backlash in your professional life; but additional responsibilities at work could mean that you won't be able to participate in the important moments that your friends and family want you to be part of. Finding time for both might be impossible, but learning to compromise in some areas could lend itself to be helpful. Pay attention to what is taking up your time, and take initiative to root out activities that encourage procrastination. Keep your priorities and responsibilities at the forefront of your agenda.


      The new moon is the time of the month when the moon steps back to let the stars shine. Follow the moon’s lead with the enthusiasm of the fixed star Mekalinan, located on the left shoulder of the Charioteer in the Auriga Constellation, but do so without the impulse and recklessness that can come with this energy. It is important to remember themes from the lunar eclipse on June 5th to see how they continue to impact the energies provided with this new moon.

With open-mindedness and flexibility, this new moon is a great time to break bad habits and open your life to many more possibilities and opportunities.

      DECEMBER 7TH ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

      DECEMBER 7TH ASTROLOGY & ENERGY: NEW MOON IN SAGITTARIUS

      Happy New Moon in Sagittarius, lovelies! Sagittarian energy is always expansive, but this New Moon combined with Mercury just turning direct yesterday is amplifying the adventurous vibes of this optimistic and curious sign. Ruled by and right now conjunct Jupiter (known for amplifying anything he touches), this New Moon feels like a powerful kick-off to something fantastic! Anything new and positive that you can put into place now has the support of the cosmos to escalate and expand its influence, so make the time to do something kind for yourself today. The moon and Jupiter are square planet of action Mars as well as illusion-master Neptune, creating a powerful call to action that may be accompanied by nebulous details. It’s not the best time to move something forward by signing a contract or count on precise measurements, but it IS a fantastic time to make or enjoy art as well as explore our own subconscious programming and patterns. Be wary to only turn your analytical eye only inward, though. This is not the time to judge others  or push about what you think their views *should* be. Sagittarius influences us to recognize those areas of life where we really DO know things, but at this time being too noisy about that is likelier to lead to an embarrassing foot-in-the-mouth situation than a changed mind. Dedicate your energy to making art, playing, exploring, and dreaming big about what you want your future to be! Plant the seeds with your enthusiasm and a magical prismatic rainbow of a garden will begin grow, even now in Winter! <3

      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.
