  • Sextile Mars

 

Keywords/Themes: Expand, Philosophical ideals, morality, travel, action, moving forward, growth at all costs, bravado, adventure, religion, conviction, abundance, life path.

 

Collective Energies:

Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius wants abundance: to go big or go home, have your cake and eat it too, as well as have plenty of time for fun. Sagittarius is the sign of optimism and also expands the realm of feelings. It rules the pointer finger and can be eager to place blame when it concerns itself with morality and ideals as well as philosophy. However, the shadow side of it can be arrogance, exaggeration, or superiority.

Watch out for overindulgence or being optimistic to a point that ignores the emotions. This full moon offers a wonderful time to examine our truth and tap into our adventurous side, as well as making time to be silly or be playful. Spiritual and religious concerns may take a priority or evoke our inner humanitarian, as Sagittarius sometimes leans towards a messiah/redeemer tendencies. 

The grand trine with the  Moon, North Node, and South Node reminds us about moving forward and staying on our soul’s path and vision. While the sextile to Mars may imply focusing on what we want and taking action towards our visions from the last new moon. 

Sagittarius wants to celebrate. This is a good time for holidays, weddings, birthdays, etc. so make time to honor what is good and working in your life on this optimistic full moon. Though don't be disappointed if you are feeling more emotional, this can also be an expansion of the emotional realm that could feel warm-hearted or too much.

This full moon may also bring us into more heart opening and exploration, so run with it!  Here are some ritual suggestions for integrating these energies:

 

Everyday ritual recommendations:

// Body // Soothing essential oils such as lavender (try our Lavender Ritual Candle or Ritual Oil)

// Mind // Philosophy or religious texts, or travel books

// Spirit // Metta meditation or heart opening yoga asanas 

// Soul // Do more things that bring you into joy and expansion. The Happiness & Inspiration Ritual Kit is perfect for just this!

The word “Aquarius” comes from Latin meaning “water-carrier, water-pourer.” Its astrological symbol represents water, but looks like an electrical jolt. And rightfully so—Aquarius connects us to energies of originality, eccentricity, freedom, radical expression, and epiphanies of all sorts. It craves innovation and orients us to the future and what is possible. When sparked it catalyzes creativity, new insights, or exciting novelty. Activated Aquarius energy in our society spurs...

Deities and Demons: Shiva the Destroyer

January 08, 2020 0 Comments

Shiva is a complex Hindu Deity whose identity is inseparable from the Hindu Trimurti (or trinity) of Gods, composed of Brahma as Creator, Vishnu as Preserver, and Shiva as Destroyer. In that they are a trinity, neither of them is exclusively bound to the actions their names would imply, and instead each acts as a mask of inertia upon the stage that is life. The role Shiva plays in the game of life is that of a juggler who effortlessly balances the opposing forces of creation and destruction, asceticism and procreation, stillness and dancing, order and chaos. There are myths that...
