New moon and total solar eclipse in fiery Sagittarius, the seeker of spiritual truth.
This solar eclipse will only be visible tonight for a few minutes in Antarctica and the southern edges of South America and Australia. But don’t kid yourself; every eclipse delivers an energetic wallop to the entire planet.
And this eclipse event in Sagittarius has a signature energy that I can only describe as…
We are receiving a turbo-charged download of transformative energies. And it’s positive, life affirming, passionate energies this time.
So, the only question is, where in your life do you need a turbo boost?
Where are you aching to make a dramatic shift? Focus there. Now is the time for positive, creative, joyful action. Even a tiny baby step is better than no action at all.
No more whining.
Go For It.
Full moon in fiery Aries, spiritual warrior for truth and justice. Mercury just went direct as well. Full steam ahead!
Life may feel hot and volatile right now. And you may get the urge to jump in and fix everything all at once — even though you probably don’t have a clue what you’re doing.
Energies are wild and spontaneous and hard to corral. Try to slow your roll a bit. There is no need to right every wrong at once. Breathe and carefully consider your choices.
You can burn off some of the fiery energy by clearing and organizing your space. Or exercising. Or dancing like a dervish. Or try some primal scream therapy.
Just don’t use it to blow up your entire life.

“She changes everything She touches and everything She touches changes.
The world is Her body. The world is in Her and She is in the world. She surrounds us like the air we breathe. She is as close to us as our own breath. She is energy, movement, life, and change. She is the ground of freedom, creativity, sympathy, understanding, and love. In Her we live, and move, and co-create our being. She is always there for each and every one of us, particles of atoms, cells, animals, and human animals. We are precious in Her sight. She understands and remembers us with unending sympathy. She inspires us to live creatively, joyfully, and in harmony with others in the web of life.
Yet choice is ours. The world that is Her body is co-created. The choices of every individual particle of an atom, every individual cell, every individual animal, every individual human animal play a part. The adventure of life on planet earth and in the universe as a whole will be enhanced or diminished by the choices we make. She hears the cries of the world, sharing our sorrows with infinite compassion.
In a still, small voice, She whispers the desire of Her heart: Life is meant to be enjoyed. She sets before us life and death. We can choose life. Change is. Touch is. Everything we touch can change.”

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.

Full moon in earthy Taurus on Halloween. The moon is visiting with Uranus, a powerful agent of change. Meanwhile, the sun is in wise and witchy Scorpio.
Our cultural initiation continues.
During normal times, full moons stir up sensitive humans (just ask an ER nurse how crazy people get during full moons). And these are wilder than normal times. A contentious US election is just around the corner. The COVID pandemic is worsening as well. You can bet that this full moon will deliver more chaos and crazy surprises.
Time to get physical.
The antidote to chaos and craziness is to ground in the physical world. Focus on physical movement : walking, jogging, dancing, squats, yoga, weight lifting, etc. Eat grounding foods such as carrots, potatoes, beets and other root vegetables. Sit or lie down on the ground and feel it’s support. Become a creature of the soil and rocks again.
Your ancestors can also be a great source of grounding support. The veils between the worlds are especially thin right now, making it a great time to honor and connect with your ancestors in some way. Every family has ancestors who survived floods, droughts, famine, wars, pandemics and more. Reach out to them now for guidance and support.
Come back to ground.
“The world which men have made isn’t working. Something needs to change. To change the world, we women need first to change ourselves – and then we need to change the stories we tell about who we are. The stories we’ve been living by for the past few centuries – the stories of male superiority, of progress and growth and domination – don’t serve women and they certainly don’t serve the planet.
Stories matter, you see.”
