New Moon in Aquarius January 24th 2020

New Moons in Aquarius remind us to detach, be inventive, be true, connect and be charitable. With both the sun and the moon in Aquarius this plays a big role. Aquarius is an air sign so we may feel lost in thoughts at this time. Aquarius reminds us to look at where we are too attached and let go a little. Use the Aquarius energy to find a creative solution or even invent something! Are you allowing yourself the space to BE yourself? Show your true self at this time and be authentic. Take some time out to be social around this time. Aquarius is a humanitarian sign so go seek out your people, your kindred spirits. Oh yeah did I mention humanitarian, think about how you can give back at this time. Donate whatever you can, your money to a good cause or even your time to someone in need. This time of year with Aquarius prominently in the sky your cup is bound to be overflowing.

Other aspects affecting the new moon

New Moon square Uranus -Uranus represents our unique individuality and capacity to liberate yourself from past limitations. This may make you feel restless so take action and be positive and proactive. This may bring about great change so go with it!

Venus square Mars -Venus represents our ability to attract people and things that we love and value. Mars is all about our capacity to assert ourselves to get what we desire. Squares indicate conflict so conflicts and tension may arise related to our abilities to get what we love and desire.

Mercury sextile Mars -Mercury is the planet of communication, thinking, speaking, learning and reasoning. With a cooperative sextile between the two planets this brings about a great urge to take on and speak up about your desires.

Venus sextile Jupiter – With Venus and Jupiter working together it will help us to search for meaning, truth and our own values in a loving way. This will ease any relationship tensions and possibly spark new relationships or deeper bonds.

Overall, this moon can bring about HUGE changes that some may not take easily. However, if you can approach it with love and understanding the growth and changes will be highly positive. Go with the changes not against it and be prepared to observe others fighting a little too hard against the flow. Maybe offer some sage advice from a caring standpoint but only once their mood swings subside. Not getting what we want at this time could result in something much better if we don’t dwell on the changes or feelings of loss.

Enjoy these changes you got this!
Love to your growing spirit,

Full Moon in Cancer January 10th 2:21 pm EST

Cancer full moons can bring up a needy and dependent energy. Since this full moon is also a lunar eclipse, it magnifies the already strong energy. It’s important during this time to find balance between your need to achieve and your time at home. Have you had enough time with close friends and family? On the other hand, have you been avoiding things you need to deal with? This moon may bring up feelings of insecurity or neediness. Ask yourself if you’re being too clingy, moody, manipulative, or paranoid. When you are balancing your work/home life you should not have a problem here, but if you are out of balance your worst emotions could rear their ugly heads. If intense feelings come up, take a step back, acknowledge how you feel and maybe do some journaling to see where the imbalance is coming into play. When you find balance you will be sure of yourself at work and at home.

Below is a chart of the Full Moon in Cancer

Other Aspects

Moon/ Luncar Eclipse opposite Mercury shines a light onto our communication so be sure to think before you speak. Talk to someone you admire about your feelings so you can better understand them.

Moon/Lunar Eclipse opposite Saturn will ask us to look at order and discipline in our lives. We may feel burdened by our responsibilities or feel bored or lonely. Try to keep yourself busy or do something relaxing.

Moon/Lunar Eclipse opposite Pluto will provide an opportunity to transform and renew ourselves but it most likely will not be easy. Relationships can be strained when we allow our emotions to take us from one extreme to another.

Moon/Lunar Eclipse opposite Ceres will bring a challenge to love unconditionally and nurture not just those we love but also ourselves. Ceres rules working mothers and can challenge a family dynamic.

Moon/Lunar Eclipse trine Neptune implores us to consider how we are helping or hindering other or the greater whole. Meditation or prayer are important at this time. A great time for activism as there may be a lot to speak out about at this time.

So, in a nutshell, this moon is tough on relationships. However, if you are careful with your words and do not allow your emotions to run wild, we will be able to help each other through this time. If we can balance our home and work life we will be feeling more secure with this cancer full moon lunar eclipse. It might still get a bit messy, but if we can be self aware, we can save ourselves a lot of clean up. Try to take some time to mediate, speak to someone you admire or a professional(nothing wrong with that!) or do something artistic/ creative with all those feelings bubbling up!

Magickal Moon Blessings!

Love Always from your Spiritual Muse,

New Moon in Capricorn Solar Eclipse

On about December 25th or 26th, depending on your time zone we experience a new moon solar eclipse in Capricorn. This is an excellent end to not just the year but the decade. Capricorn is all about career, public image, and status so it’s a great time to think about our goals for 2020 and the whole decade too!

What do you want to manifest? The New Moon is always a great time for manifestation but the solar eclipse makes it even more powerful as does the end of the year energetically. What new beginnings or routines would you like to set? The eclipse energy means this new moon will impact us for longer than normal and it’s themes can be rediscovered or begin to emerge even 6 months from now well into 2020.

Other aspects include Capricorn conjunct Jupiter, the solar eclipse trine Uranus, and Jupiter trine Uranus. Capricorn conjunct Jupiter will bring about positive change, growth, and prosperity. The eclipse trine Uranus will bring exciting surprises and a desire to try new things. Jupiter trine Uranus will create luck and opportunity in our lives.

This is a great time to think about what happened since our last solar eclipse in Capricorn last year. What were your highs? What were your lows? How have you changed and how do you want to continue to change? What are you hoping to create in the next year? The next decade?! Use this auspicious time wisely and manifest all that you desire in your life.

Blessings to you and yours and a happy New Year!

Your Spiritual Muse,

Syd

Full Moon in Gemini

Full Moon in Gemini Chart: December 12, 2019

Congratulations! You survived another year of full moons. As we enter the last full moon of the year, it’s an excellent time to let go of any lingering trash in our lives. Full Moons are always times or release as we prepare for the moons energy and appearance in the sky to subside, but why not give it some extra energy as the last full moon of the DECADE. Let’s start 2020 fresh and renewed.

This full moon falls on 12/12 at 12:12 am on the east coast! Not only that but 2019 reduces to the number 12. In numerology 12 then reduces down to 3. Three is all about your own personal happiness, so ask yourself what makes you happy? And keep asking until you really KNOW. Then focus on releasing anything that takes away from your own personal happiness and joy.

A gemini full moon is especially beneficial for Aries, Geminis, Leos, Librans, Sagittarians, and Aquarians but is often harder for the rest of the zodiak. Gemini energy is communicative yet changeable and fickle. You never know which twin you will get!

According to “Moonology” some good questions to ask yourself during this time are: have I been gossipy, superficial, or flightly? Have I been glossing over other people’s feelings? Have I been too quick to change my mind, too restless? Have I done enough reading to keep expanding my mind? How can I slow down and be authentic with others?

Since Gemini is all about multitasking and spins lots of plates at once, it’s a great time to find balance between all your hobbies/interests and really focus on developing one at this time. The gemini moon can have us feeling motivated and the sun in Sagittarius adds an energized feeling and inner fire to any endeavour. Gemini is an air sign so it fuels that Sagittarius fire. Sagittarius is all about expanding our minds to look at the bigger picture and can help the sometimes lower level communication and learning of gemini. During this full moon we also find Mercury in Sagittarius which encourages us to communicate with others to learn to see the bigger picture.

Mars in Scorpio brings about a time of transformation, action, a magnetic moving force and deeper intentions behind our actions.

Uranus in Taurus allows us to shatter old forms of ourselves by our own resourcefulness. Our productivity at this time can lead to the liberation of our individuality.

Neptune is right at home in Pisces where our dreams, ideals are merging with ideas of connection, the greater whole, unity, and compassion.

Some of the most powerful influences on this new moon are the three planets snuggled up in Capricorn. Pluto, Venus, and Saturn are all only one degree apart. Pluto in Capricorn will bring about structure, transformation and renewal. Venus in Capricorn will make us think about love, asethetics, and balance. Saturn in Capricorn will bring about themes of social accomplishment.

Venus conjunct Saturn will make it difficult to express love and make it easier to be cold towards those we love. Venus conjunct Pluto will cause us to feel an increased need for love and deep connections. Saturn conjunct Pluto will cause us to work hard and we will need patience to do so.

The moon quincunx Venus will bring an imbalance of love and emotional support. This balance needs to be restored in relationships, don’t just turn away and look for temporary satisfaction. Moon quincunx Saturn leads to guilt, fear or distractions that can affect relationships. The third quincunx with Pluto leads to anxiety and emotional intensity which may be so strong you feel a need to withdraw all together.

This full moon is going to be extremely important for working on relationships before the end of this year and this decade! That means relationships with everyone in your life, even yourself. Look at the bigger picture of how your actions affect others not just yourself. This can lead to greater understanding and huge karmic lessons.

New Moon in Libra

On Saturday September 28th 2019, at 11:26 PST and 2:26 pm est the moon becomes new in Libra. Libra is related to Venus, balance, and the 7th house, the house of relationships. Venus is all about love so the moon will influence balance in our relationships and the love in our lives.

The fixed star Zaniah, within the Libra constellation, plays a big part in this new moon. We will be social and interested in educational pursuits to advance ourselves. You may find yourself extra charming around this time. 

The new moon is also quincunx Uranus. This can bring about changes that may cause us anxiety. It’s important to be flexible and to know that you don’t have to change your entire direction. Small changes will prove very beneficial and big changes that have been planned will go smoothly at this time. A small change in routine could be just what the doctor ordered.

Venus sextile Jupiter. This only magnifies the social energy in the air. Be confident and know you’ve got this in the bag. Your charisma will come easily at this time so go out and chat it up. That being said, try not to be argumentative for the sake of argument.

With this new moon ask yourself, how are my relationships doing? Are there any negotiations I’ve been putting off that I can use this charisma to accomplish? Am I feeling codependent or like I’ve lost my identity in any relationships? How is my self love practice?

I wish you all the blessings this Libra new moon! Thanks for reading.
