New moon in airy Libra, the queen of justice and fair, balanced, egalitarian relationships.
A Libra new moon is the perfect time to sit quietly and contemplate if there are places in your life that are out of balance.
Look at your life like a loving gardener; even the most perfect, beautiful gardens require tending to stay balanced and beautiful.
What needs to be tended to in your life? What needs love and feeding? What needs to be cut back? What needs to be removed?
What is missing from your garden? What do you want (or need) to add to make your heart sing? How can you create a little space for the things you truly love and desire?
Full moon in airy Aquarius, the visionary. This is the second Aquarian full moon this summer. To complicate matters, Jupiter is also in Aquarius moving retrograde,
Aquarius is all about freedom, but nothing feels free or easy right now. Rough, ratchety energy is running high.
You may not be able to focus clearly on the future or envision anything right now. Craziness abounds on a global level.
Breathe! Take a break from the news. Keep calm and carry on. This energy shall soon pass.

Full moon in Aquarius, the visionary. Tonight is the perfect time to sit with the moon and meditate on the future you want to create. Ask for a good vision to catch you.
Ask. Get still. Listen.
May a good vision catch me
May a benevolent vision take hold of me, and move me
May a deep and full vision come over me, and burst open around me
May a luminous vision inform me, enfold me.
May I awaken into the story that surrounds,
May I awaken into the beautiful story.
May the wondrous story find me;
May the wildness that makes beauty arise between two lovers
arise beautifully between my body and the body of this land,
between my flesh and the flesh of this earth,
here and now,
on this day,
May I taste something sacred.

New moon and solar eclipse in airy, shape shifting, trickster Gemini.
Eclipses are said to amplify our thoughts and intentions a hundredfold or more. Both positive and negative thoughts are amplified. So, why not harness that power?
Take time to think about what you REALLY want.
What do you want to amplify in your life?
What do you want more of?
What nurtures you?
What do you need to grow and bloom?
Focus on what feeds your body-mind and spirit. What will it look like, taste like, feel like when you get what you desire?
Full moon in airy Libra. The days are lengthening and warming. Spring is stirring. And something heavy has lifted that goes beyond the seasonal shift. A lightening has begun. But of what? Sometimes it is only in hindsight that we understand what has occurred.
How are you relating to the world? To yourself? Now is the time to lighten up. Change your approach. Free your inner dancer, singer, joker. Cut loose. Embrace your growing spring fever.
It’s been a long slog of a pandemic winter. Time to leave your rut behind.

New moon in airy, visionary Aquarius. Mercury, Venus, Saturn and Jupiter are hanging out there as well. It’s quite an Aquarian gathering.
The energies of a new moon make it an ideal time to think about the future and set intentions. And this Aquarian new moon is especially ripe for visioning and planning. The expansive, visionary energies are HUGE right now!
Last year was a wild “shake up” period. Most of us had long held habits and assumptions stripped away in the chaos and turbulence. This is the perfect time to stop and regroup.
What path do you find yourself on now? Is this still the right path for you? What do you want to add and subtract from your present life? Where do you want to tweak and adjust your life as you move deeper into 2021?
Take the long view and consider all your options – even the wild ones!
P.S. Sacred feminine queen Venus is tapping into Aquarian energies as she prepares to drop out of sight and begin her journey into the underworld. She will be doing some navel gazing and clearing while she’s behind the Sun for the next few months. This is a wonderful time to connect with her deep feminine wisdom.

New Moon in Libra, champion of justice, balance and equal relationships. But imbalance and chaos rule right now in the outer world. The crazy roller coaster of events and emotions continues day after day.
The Goddess of Justice reminds us that true justice and equality are rarely easy to achieve. People who have amassed power and riches from playing by the rules of the current system will fight to keep the system as is — even as the unfairness and inequities of the system are being exposed to everyone. As Machiavelli noted centuries ago, “power corrupts.”
But the Goddess of Justice also reminds us that true power is not about status or position or money. True power flows from within. True power is grounded in knowing and trusting in one’s self and one’s gifts. And standing in a place of true inner power, one person can change the world. Remember Gandhi, Nelson Mandela, Joan of Arc, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Lasting change grows out of people standing in their power and their knowing.
Get off the roller coaster of news and rumors for awhile. Focus on you. What does your heart need right now?
Allow yourself to feel everything that this time is bringing up in you; fear, rage, confusion, despair, hope, love. Those feelings are markers pointing you towards what matters most to you – and what parts of you need extra care and healing right now.
You can cultivate your internal power and knowing by listening deeply to yourself and all your fears and desires. Inner balance, peace, wisdom and power lie just beyond all those difficult feelings you’ve been trying to avoid.
Your Soul is always there, beneath the outer noise. Listen.
