    Analysis
    Overall this is an incredibly abundant and stable moon. This Full Moon is a very welcomed break from the last few stressful lunar cycles we've had in recent weeks. The Taurus Full Moon is generally about stabilizing or grounding out matters. Be that financially, or in terms of relationships, its usually a more so easy going lunation. This one is especially powerful, with nods to both Pluto as well as Saturn. Whenever these power hitters are involved, considerable structural changes are happening for a more significant cause; stability and transformation. This is also a sign of patience or being able to handle whatever comes your way. Expect a sense of maturity and more precise decision making. Pluto is the king of profound psychological alchemy. Events taking place around this moon in the end, are paving the way for much stronger, more so fertile future. 
     
    The build-up to this moon will start as early as November 8th, expect the Universe to deliver some subtle cosmic messages to give you clues. It's aspects to Neptune are now nearly exact, and will allow you to drop into intuitive states. This will enable you to be much better attuned to your and other people's feelings. You may notice you're much more sensitive than usual and may feel slightly empathic around certain people or places. Staying hydrated, soaking in a tub, or going to the beach is all highly recommended when dealing with some emotional challenges. When in doubt, use the element of water to help nurture your emotional body. Neptune is also in harmonious aspects to Saturn, suggesting there is a great deal of gain when you follow your spiritual pursuits. Meditation and dreamwork may prove to be very vivid. 
     
    Mars will still be in Libra, now forming a favorable sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius. This can really be positive and joyous energy when used appropriately. It suggests there will be more room for optimism and also sexual relations. For some, it can be fun and flirty. This can be an excellent time to discuss travel plans in the future with a partner or team effort. On the other hand, it can, at times, lead to edginess and people being short-tempered. The one real challenge of this lunation is Mercury still on its retrograde path, trekking backward through the murky waters of Scorpio. When we see a Full Moon in opposition to Mercury, there's an indication of a difference of opinions or ideas. On the axis of Taurus and Scorpio, its about security and the need to survive. We may see conflicts, arguments, and at times miscommunications. This is not a moon for ultimatums. Watch, look, and listen. You're about to determine which path you're about to take. So much of this is about making peace with welcoming the new. 
     
    Per my last article in the November overview, I discussed this retrograde in length, and it's purpose. My advice; stay in your lane this Full Moon. This is a profoundly compelling and intense time. The more you're focused on bringing in something substantial, but not attached to any one particular source or person, the better. This is a manifesting moon, with the ability to bring you exactly what you need, the trick is being open-minded. Do your best not to make any significant decisions until the dust settles closer to the end of the month. As with all Full Moons, there are always intense situations that come to a head that show us exactly who or what needs to be completed. This may take a few days to a week or so to be fully realized. But keep in mind the writing WILL be on the wall from Nov. 8th- Nov. 15th. Meditate on being in a heart and mind space that facilitates your own security. Pot a house plant. Hug a tree. Stand with your feet in the grass. Put on a mud mask. Work with some clay. Ground it all out, baby. Ask the universe to send us exactly what we need, even if it's not exactly what we want at this very moment. There's something beautiful about being in that vulnerable space of acknowledging we need something new. It's then the magic happens.

    6. When you're completed, be sure to close sacred space and thank your guides. Ideally, leave out the offerings for several days.

    Crystal Meditations for Quarantine

    Crystals carry a lot of power. These earthen tokens of sacred geometry are said to hold the energies and secrets or the universe, and can also be charged, like any talisman, to hold the intention of the practitioner or wearer. These sparkling gem treasures are gifts to us from the Earth and can be used in a plethora of ways, and since the collective world is experiencing a vibrational and energetic shift due to quarantine and the covid-19 pandemic, many are searching for new ways to ground and center themselves while dealing with the emotional, physical, and financial upheaval that comes with this crisis.

    April proves to be a mighty and potent month ahead. The Sun will be spending the first portion of the month in the sign of Aries. This brings about a noticeable shift energetically, encouraging everyone to be self-sufficient. Jupiter will make a rare conjunction to Pluto, shining a light on intense and often brutal topics. Pluto is the lord of the underworld and rules everything from death and destruction to regeneration. Pluto's keyword is evolution. Both physically and spiritually. Pluto will be meeting up with Jupiter in Capricorn, amplifying the world's current conditions. This is a once in about every twelve-year aspect, and promises even more significant upheavals in the weeks ahead. While some astrologers suggest this is the "kiss of death," I see things a bit differently. It's my job to inform readers and clients that the "stars impel, they do not compel." AKA; the astrology provides the framework to have experiences; it doesn't always dictate our lives. It merely provides the atmosphere...

    New Moon in Aries: Brand New Dawn, March 24th, 2020
    New Moon in Aries: Brand New Dawn, March 24th, 2020

    This New Moon is a fierce one, with more than just a little bit of heat behind it. Aries, the cardinal fire sign, is the very first of the zodiac. It’s a sign known for its independence and willingness to forge on. This is the very first New Moon in the astrological new year. This begins once the Sun moves into Aries, as it did a few days ago on March 20th. For astrologers and those from the Northern Hemisphere, we call this the Spring equinox. This is the welcoming of new energy and new life. Those of you wanting to set new personal “new year” goals, now is your time. I promise they’re more likely to stick than the ones set in January!..
