Flaming New Moon and Eclipse

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…

FLAME ON!!

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.

Stop debating.
No more whining.
Go For It.
Act now.

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.

Nihilistic New Moon in Scorpio

New moon in Scorpio, shamanic queen of dark, raw emotions and shadow work. Wild geomagnetic storms are bombarding us. And Uranus and Saturn continue to stir the pot. It’s crazy out there.

You may be feeling like everything is pointless, sad and bleak. But you’re simply exhausted from months of global chaos. Your nihilist shadow part has come out to dance for a day or two. It’s time to shed a skin.

Be gentle with your inner nihilist. Love yourself enough to hold your dark side close and listen to what it has to say. Underneath the pain, there is wisdom in your dark.

Allow yourself to weep, wail and gnash your teeth over the state of the world and your life. Yes, it’s true; a lot of things are f&%ked up. And it’s hard to see how this ends well. So weep and wail and lament your fate..

Yes there is darkness. But every good thing you do, every kindness you share ripples out and creates more light. So be kind to yourself and honor your darkness.

Time to shed the skin you’ve outgrown and see what’s underneath.

Warrior Full Moon

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.

Libra New Moon – Creating Balance

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?

Emotional Harvest Moon

Harvest full moon in watery, emotional Pisces is conjunct Neptune. The fiery chaos of the past few months has finally quieted down a bit. The prevailing energies flow with dreamy, surreal emotions.

Over the next few days, a convergence of energies occurs that creates a healing portal or nexus point.

Pay attention to how you react to people and events this week. Do you have an odd or oversized reaction to something? Pause and look closely at anything that upsets you. Is your reaction about here and now? Or some earlier unresolved event? Charged childhood and/or past life memories may surface and bleed into current events.

Whatever surfaces, whether from this lifetime or another, it is arising to be healed. Spend time examining, honoring and loving whatever arises. It will be time well spent.
