Fiery full moon in Leo. This moon is known as the Snow Moon in the northern hemisphere. Paradoxically, even as we turn toward spring, the heaviest snows blanket the land.
Leo is the champion of self-love, personal power and sovereignty.
Are there places or relationships where you need to stand up for yourself and your needs?
How can you honor and love yourself even more now?
Where do you need to shift in order to embrace your personal sovereignty and rule your own life?
Wild full moon in Gemini, the shape shifting, trickster fairy.
The fire of a Sagittarius Sun continues to burn bright and hot, fueled by the air of a Gemini Moon. But what will we do with all this fiery, transformative energy?
During the holidays, old hurts and pain tend to knock at our door. We can use all this fiery energy to fuel old hurts and resentments. That painful dance is a tradition as old as Yule.
Or… we can choose something new this year; We can choose to drop our old stories and use the fire to create a magical new tradition for ourselves.
We can love and honor ourselves and our needs. And when we’ve filled ourselves up with love, it will spill out of us and spread into the world, blessing everyone around us.
We can use the magic of Moonlight and Fire to turn this time into a season of love. Or not. It’s our choice.

New moon time is now. The moon begins her journey to wholeness this month in fiery Leo, the regal sign of self-love. La Luna is also illuminating Venus at the gate of love and compassion.
A new moon is not a time of action. Make this a time of dark, quiet reflection. Sit with yourself and ponder what you want to begin creating in the month ahead. Reflect, release and clarify who you are and what you want.
“A new moon teaches gradualness
and how one gives birth
to oneself slowly.
Patience with small details
makes perfect a large work,
like the universe…”
May I trust in the wisdom of the plants and the animals and the water. May I hear the message whispered in my ear that is for me alone. May I live with confidence that my soul is eternal and my heartbeat and the heartbeat of the world are one. May I remember the Earth is my Mother. May I feel my hand in Hers and have no fear. May I welcome the gifts that come my way.

“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”

And if you are to love,
love like the moon loves.
It doesn’t steal the night.
It only unveils the beauty of the dark
