Commitment & Constraint: New Moon in Capricorn, January 5 & 6, 2019

Commitment & Constraint: New Moon in Capricorn, January 5 & 6, 2019

January 03, 2019

While Capricorn isn’t known for being the life of the New Year party, it is what motivates us to set resolutions and get back to business. This new moon and solar eclipse occur shortly after the Gregorian calendar new year and ushers in a grounded beginning to 2019. Eclipses happen every six months in pairs, with the lunar eclipse at the full moon on January 20 or 21(depending on your location), and while this partial eclipse is visible from Asia, the energies can be felt anywhere. Even though eclipses aren’t rare, they are certainly experienced as phases where our personal and collective evolution seems to happen....

ADVENTURE & ABUNDANCE: New Moon in Sagittarius, December 6 & 7 2018

ADVENTURE & ABUNDANCE: New Moon in Sagittarius, December 6 & 7 2018

December 04, 2018

This Sagittarius new moon arrives after a week of Jupiter in alignment with the Sun. Sagittarius connects us with the expansive side of life such as optimism, vision, and joy. It moves us towards discovering our ideals and expanding our sense of conviction. Healthy Sagittarius energy is full of faith and adventure, while the shadow side lends itself towards arrogance or bravado. I also notice a tendency towards over-consumption while appreciating the abundance so often experienced with Sagittarius. While many may hail this as the luckiest new moon of the year, I’m dubious of that title. Like all zodiac signs Sagittarius has aspects that aren’t...

MYSTICAL METAMORPHOSIS: New Moon in Scorpio, November 7, 2018

MYSTICAL METAMORPHOSIS: New Moon in Scorpio, November 7, 2018

November 05, 2018

This year’s Scorpio New Moon reminds us of the full spectrum of experience inherent with this mystical sign. It invites the metamorphosis of our personal and collective lives while reminding us of the current intensity and turbulent times. No sign in the zodiac seems more misunderstood than Scorpio’s desire to shed or transform in the service of the unseen, powerful evolutionary force. Though before we come into contact or surrender to this process, we often experience the other shadow elements of Scorpio such as manipulation, power, secrets, or shame.

PEOPLE PLEASING & PERSONAL POWER: New Moon in Libra, October 8, 2018

PEOPLE PLEASING & PERSONAL POWER: New Moon in Libra, October 8, 2018

October 04, 2018

Libra reminds us of the truth, beauty, and goodness inherent in our human and heavenly connection. It craves fairness and justice in its dealings though may avoid discomfort at all costs. This new moon pushes us into looking at our people-pleasing tendencies and its impact on our personal power.  The shadow side of Libra is co-dependency or focusing so much on others that we forget about our own needs or identity. Another important aspect of Libra is sometimes difficulty letting go to people or situations that may not serve us but where we still seem to crusade for fairness. Libra’s gifts are for art, fashion, and aesthetic as well as inviting in equality and diplomacy. Though there can be a tendency towards

RITUAL & ROUTINE: New Moon in Virgo, September 9, 2018

RITUAL & ROUTINE: New Moon in Virgo, September 9, 2018

September 06, 2018

Virgo, as the only human form on the zodiac, brings us down into practicality. As the scribe, writer, and messenger, writing and clear communication take precedent. Be mindful of know-it-all or overthinking tendencies (guilty as charged) and analyzing to the point of detriment.  In its elevated expression, Virgo pushes us to problem solve in service to be a better version of ourselves and to others, though often it can be taken as critical or judgmental instead of helpful.

SPIRITUAL SELF-AWARENESS: New Moon in Leo + Partial Solar Eclipse, Saturday, August 11, 2018

SPIRITUAL SELF-AWARENESS: New Moon in Leo + Partial Solar Eclipse, Saturday, August 11, 2018

August 10, 2018

The partial solar eclipse is the third in an odd series of three and opens a unique portal into self-awareness, self-wisdom, and perhaps even our own Godliness. With Leo’s warmth we explore and integrate our self-expression and creativity, though the shadow side can be overly self-centered or egotistical. As if being a partial eclipse in Leo weren’t special enough, this new moon forms a rare configuration called a Yod with Pluto and Neptune. “Yod” comes from the Hebrew word for “hand of God” and astrologically “points” to a planetary triangulation of spiritual awareness and evolution.

EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT: Partial Solar Eclipse + New Moon in Cancer, July 12 & 13, 2018

EMOTIONAL EMPOWERMENT: Partial Solar Eclipse + New Moon in Cancer, July 12 & 13, 2018

July 11, 2018

This powerful partial eclipse and new moon in Cancer begins the next lunar cycle and prepares us for a full moon lunar eclipse later this month. Cancer energies connect us to our family, home, emotions, and needs. It asks us to pay more attention to our intuition as well as our conditioned feelings and receptivity. Though the detrimental side of Cancer may be overly protective or giving in hopes of getting its needs met in return. Perhaps the most important aspect of this new moon is the exact opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. This primordial planetary energy evokes upheaval for the purpose of regeneration and rebirth. It often asks us to dig deeper into...

INTEGRATION & INQUISITIVENESS: New Moon in Gemini, June 13, 2018

INTEGRATION & INQUISITIVENESS: New Moon in Gemini, June 13, 2018

June 12, 2018

As always, the new moon creates time to pause, reset, and slow down…all things Gemini doesn’t exactly enjoy doing. Instead the gregarious air sign leans more towards moving quickly, sometimes at the cost of being scattered. Pay attention to all the things that want your attention this new moon, how can you instead direct your thoughts and intentions more clearly. Gemini is great at communicating, chatting, and charming. Though it can certainly show up as two-sided or thinking in extremes. A healthy expression for this sign would be moving towards the ability to hold two things at once and integrating parts that may seem like opposites. This alchemical capacity could be...

Earth Intimacy & Intentions: New Moon in Taurus, May 15, 2018

Earth Intimacy & Intentions: New Moon in Taurus, May 15, 2018

May 14, 2018

Collective energies: 

The Taurus new moon on May 15 activates our desire for connection to ourselves, others, but also Earth itself. The Earthly, second sign of the zodiac reminds us to stop and smell the roses and appreciate the finer things in life while also honoring productivity. Taurus, like the Earth, continually leans into the creative process. The shadow side can be indulgence, materialistic, or bull-headedness. All things to notice during this new lunar phase. A key aspect of Taurus energies is understanding our relationship to intimacy itself and this new moon offers the perfect impetus to explore whether through tantric practices or a personal deep dive into the watery realms of our unconscious.
