Happy New Moon!

“The new moon of Oct 16th energizes spiritual warriors and all those who seek clarity, courage, and freedom from fear. This new moon will expand the healing power of the goddess.  The 9 waxing moon nights to follow are celebrated as Navaratri, when the fierce and nurturing Goddess Durga descends onto Earth.

The new moon is in the area of the sky called Chitra, an auspicious star of truth and clarity. Chitra is symbolized by a shining jewel that’s formed under the weight of tremendous pressure and heat. This new moon can give insight and new opportunity, even under the pressure of crisis and tragedy.

The new moon is opposed a dramatically brilliant and willful Mars, the red warrior planet. Mars is retrograde and closer and brighter than it will be until 2035. This courageous, but combative influence will continue to enflame conflict and debate for weeks to come.  Use this time to clarify your needs, boundaries, and cultivate a sense of strength and self-reliance.

In these precarious times it’s more important to stay grounded and connected with the earth, and what is sacred to you. With the nourishing power of the goddess emerging on this new moon, there’s a radical opportunity for healing and spiritual growth ahead.  The fierce, loving, sword-wielding goddess Durga is well-known for slaying demons of worldly greed, ignorance and fear.  Use these empowering nights to come to connect with the light of compassion and clarity that shines within.”

Happy Full Moon!

“At this Full Moon, but more importantly as we enter Eclipse Season next month, it is going to be important to keep our vibration lifted and hold the light.
As Spirit shares, we as a planet, have succeeded in breaking a karmic cycle.
We now just have to ride the wave. We now have to keep ourselves pointed towards the future and away from repeating habits of the past. 
We have to keep ourselves in a vibration of unity rather than getting sucked into division or a “them vs. us” mentality. 
Remember the wisdom the numerology code of 2020 offered to us- infinite potential when we work together. When people unite, that’s when they are at their most powerful. 
Just before we shift out of this old karmic cycle, we are going to feel the chaos ringing the loudest. The storm always gets worse before it gets better.
Keep this in your heart as you journey through not just this Full Moon but also the months ahead.
You were born for this time; your soul chose to be here at this time. We are leaping the planet into the next stage of its consciousness, and your soul, your mind, and your body is along for the ride.
Brighter things are on the horizon, so under this Full Moon, even though you may be feeling irritable, antsy, and even a little stifled. Even though you may feel a strong wave of emotions bubbling up in order to purge and release them, know that this is the moment you have been working towards. 
The Aries Full Moon is the beginning of the end of the world as we know it. Let’s channel the Aries warrior energy, and ride confidently into the next chapter.
Let’s channel the fire in our hearts and in our souls and move this planet to the next level.
Don’t get sucked in with division, drama, and the ways of the past. Keep yourself connected to the light, rooted to the Earth, and aligned with your highest and truest self.”
