Collective energies:

This next lunar month begins with the new moon in innovative and quirky Aquarius. Aquarius energy invites us into possibility, originality, and if we’re lucky, our zany and eccentric side. It may stir up restlessness or give us sudden insights into unconscious and conscious aspects or patterns of ourselves we may not have been able to access before.

Aquarius seeks freedom and awakening and pulls us into future versions of ourselves. Another important aspect of Aquarius is its concern with the collective consciousness and communal thinking. Although its often tech savvy ways cannot be ignored as many prominent entrepreneurs also have this as a Sun or Moon sign. The air sign connects us to energies of originality, eccentricity, freedom, radical expression, and epiphanies of all sorts. It concerns us with the realm of humanity, community and invites us to ponder our place within the whole.

When activated, Aquarius compels us to consider social justice and the collective experience of humankind. However, Aquarius isn’t all creativity and humanitarian, as even the sign of expansion has a shadow. When in its less desirable expression, Aquarius can be aloof, non-committal, or detached. Because it likes to create things, it may also be difficult to keep interest in them long enough for completion. Another aspect to watch out for with Aquarius detriment is the sense of being completely unique in such a way that it feels it can’t relate to others.

Mercury sits next to the new moon offering an analytical angle or an invitation into intuition. In the sign of Aquarius, the thinking planet aligns with “forward thinking” and outside-of-the-box ideas. Though watch out for the monkey mind and restless tendencies this combination may evoke.

Jupiter also adds a supportive energy to this new moon through a subtle sextile angle. This energy may be felt as a heart opening or sense of gratitude and optimism. Other current astrological energies of influence include a Neptune square Jupiter tension of illusions and ideals and the subtle Saturn sextile Neptune grounding our visions into reality. This new moon is also the Chinese Lunar New Year and while the Eastern and Western zodiac systems are very different though they both evoke a sense of renewal. With the recent Imbolc Pagan holiday we get closer and closer to the astrological new year of spring season.

Perhaps the greatest gift of this Aquarius New Moon is the possibility of evolution both personally and collectively. Be prepared for potential epiphanies or a stirring up of your own inner rebel, with or without a cause.

 

Everyday ritual recommendations:

DO // Start a new creative project or restart an old one, or do something, anything you have never done before.

BE // Any meditation that calms the nervous system, soothes the monkey mind, and opens the way for sparks of insight. Try the Tranquility & Peace Ritual Kit perhaps!

WATCH // Films or documentaries that highlight those who dared to step out of the norm.

READ // Your smart phone manual to up your tech savvy game or any article or magazine geared towards entrepreneurship, creativity, or art.

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, July 4th & 5th, 2020: Overcoming Obstacles

This is a big one kids, hold onto your shorts! July and August are gearing up to be some of the more intense months of the year. This is a build-up of energy that’s been taking place for the better part of the last two and a half years. This is the final Capricorn eclipse for years to come, and she will close with a bang. Full Moon Lunar eclipses are often riddled with physical events that come to a close. Unlike Solar eclipses, which are more on the emotional side, these types of lunation bring about massive changes in the physical World. In the sign of Capricorn, it will have an authoritarian vibe to it. Some of you in the weeks ahead will see a boiling point with your relationships to superiors. For every one of you, Capricorn takes place within the twelve houses of your natal astrology chart. This is where knowing your astrological placements is essential. Even if you’re not a Capricorn or have any personal placements in that sign, this event WILL affect you. Why, you ask? Because for the better part of the last two and a half years, Saturn, the taskmaster, has been occupying that area of your chart. Saturn is along the lines of the strict authority figure in your life who wants you to

Get your sparklers ready; things are reaching some impressive heights this month. There will be moments where you can feel the energy swell to overwhelming proportions. I think everyone can benefit from keeping this in mind, focus on yourself and YOUR actions, not others. You want to be an actor, not a reactor. I liken this to not giving a toddler throwing a tantrum your attention. Anger and frustration is a funny thing. Some people handle it better than others. Some meditate. Others let it simmer until they explode. We want to watch out for any hidden intense emotions this month. The full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn is a doozy, coming in on July 4th and 5th. I expect this to be a turning point, where the world becomes acutely aware of Saturn's tight grip. Being so close to Americas's birthday, and conjunct the USA's natal Sun, important things will be coming in the weeks ahead...

Spotlight on: Crystal Quartz!

Quartz is “The Master Healer” and amplifies the energy of anything that is programmed to it, and because of its ability to be negative and positively charged, it is able to channel and store energy for use at a later time. For this exact reason, it is also ideal to use during spiritual or meditation work. It can be used to balance, cleanse, charge, and carry the intentions of anyone, or of other crystals, so it can be used for any ritual with any intention, and even as a substitute should you not have other rocks, minerals, or other talismans around...
