Earthy New Moon and Eclipse

New moon in earthy Taurus AND a partial eclipse of the sun.

Dark moon, dark sun
Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn align
Powerful energies
Auspicious times.

Sit with yourself
Sit with the dark
And the light.

Consider
What is true
What is false
What is working
What is not
Consider it all.

Sit
Make new plans
Set intentions
Prepare
A new cycle
Unfolds.

Taurus Full Moon Eclipse

This full moon in earthy, sensuous Taurus will be eclipsed later tonight, becoming almost completely engulfed in the shadow of planet Earth.

This eclipse window is an extremely potent time. You may already be roiling with emotion. At times like these, emotional issues come up asking for resolution and healing.

You can use the amplified energy of this time to take an honest look at your life. Have you been irresponsible or careless with others in some way? Or with yourself?

Be kind and gentle with yourself as you take an unflinching look at your behavior. This is a chance to own and forgive old mistakes or misconceptions that have been weighing you down.

Potent New Moon and Eclipse

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 – The Grandmothers Are Calling

Full moon tonight in earthy Capricorn, the shaper. The energies are amplified by a penumbral eclipse of the moon, visible in North America.

The deep feminine wisdom of the grandmothers is calling to you now. As old structures and rules are dismantled all around you, the grandmothers ask you to get clear about what you truly want.

What do you want in your world? Get grounded in this reality and then envision a new future unfolding before you.

Do you see a faint path headed in the direction of your truth? Follow it!

How can you begin to shape and build the future you desire? Transformation only requires you to take one tiny step at a time.

Nothing is impossible with the ancestral grandmothers by your side. Ask for their guidance and support.

🌙 ❤️

Capricorn Full Moon

Full moon in earthy Capricorn. Retrograde Saturn, Pluto and a partial lunar eclipse add to the mix. The normally creative builder energy of Capricorn, Is in a more destructive clearing away phase right now.

Ready or not, your shadow is out. The old rules of life may not hold much longer. Literally everything is up for debate.

Self care is key to managing this level of change. Create a calm safe space you can root into and relax within. Try to love every wiggle and wobble you make as you feel your way into a new future.

Wild and Stormy New Moon

New moon in watery Cancer. A total solar eclipse cauldron of energy complicates Cancer’s normal emotional focus today. The world may seem even more wild and chaotic than usual — like you are at sea in the midst of a big storm. Solar eclipses carry the energy of transformative shift, and the journey through a big shift can be quite intense.

This too shall pass.

Find a way to ground and anchor yourself. Use comfort foods, music, movement and other activities that tend to calm you. Avoid the news if you find yourself stirred up to the point of anxiety.

New moon and total eclipse energy will catalyze any intentions that you set now. But get in a calm, collected frame of mind first.
