Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon Art by Yuumei

“The June 17th Full Moon will sparkle brightly in Sagittarius, sitting just degrees away from the Galactic Center. Being so close to the Galactic Center is going to amplify and upgrade the energy of this Full Moon and raise the frequency of planet Earth.

All of us, for the days surrounding the Full Moon, are going to have the opportunity to shift into a higher frequency and higher vibration. All of us are going to have the opportunity to tap into higher realms and to explore the height of our creativity.

This is a dreamy Full Moon that will amplify our intuitive gifts and allow us to unlock the wisdom we already have inside of us.

We may forget, but everything we need, every piece of the puzzle was given to us before we came into this body, and on a Full Moon like this, it will be easier for us to remember and gain access to this wisdom.

While there is this beautiful intuitive, creative, and dreamy energy surrounding this Full Moon, it also has a fiery quality too.

Under the light of this Full Moon, we need to remember the fire within. We need to remember that we hold the bow and arrow, and we have the power and potential to hit our mark as long as we take aim and trust the way the wind blows.

With your target and your arrow all lined up, you can begin moving in that direction. Trusting the wisdom of what you desire and the ebb and flow of the wind to guide you.

Overall, the June Full Moon will be lighting the fire within and guiding our way forward through the coming Eclipse Season. It will be encouraging us to peel back the layers to uncover our truth, and to trust our intuition and dreams.

The magical Sagittarius Full Moon is truly one of the best of the year and will be helping all of us to elevate to that next level.”

Happy New Moon!

New Moon Gemini - CS

“The month of June opens with the Gemini New Moon on the 3rd. This New Moon is all about truth, communication, and self-expression.

This New Moon is drawing us to get clear on what our truth is and to work on expressing how we really feel.

Under the darkness of this New Moon, we are also going to feel motivated to take action in some area of our lives.

While New Moons often cause us to retreat within and into the shadows of our own heart and soul, this New Moon is really championing us to take initiative and get things done.

There might be things in our lives that crop up around the Gemini New Moon that encourage us to act, make a decision, or put our foot down.

We may also have to step up and take responsibility for what we want. If there is something we wish to communicate or speak up about, the New Moon will be supporting us to find our courage and strength.

As Oprah once said- “you only get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” And, under the spell of the New Moon, we must not be afraid to speak up and share what it is we desire.

While the Gemini New Moon is wonderful for all forms of self-expression and communication, we also have to be mindful of how we choose to communicate and what truths we wish to share with others.

If we want to communicate effectively, if we want to get to the truth of something, we first have to learn how to really listen.

Under the dark New Moon of June, don’t hide away from your true power. Don’t squash down your emotions or ignore the gentle pulls and nudges of your heart.

Use this energy to rise up, to speak up, and to stand up for all you believe in. Use this energy to take action and to take responsibility for the world you wish to create and the reality you wish to walk in.

We are not on this planet alone. Making connections, sharing our stories, listening to other stories, has always been the foundation of society and of humanity. Let’s get back to that. Let’s get back to story time and open up about our journey, who we are, and what inspires us.

Let us find the confidence to share our truth, to talk about our weaknesses and our strengths, and to celebrate the stories of others, for sharing and listening is how we inspire, grow, and change the world.”

“If you think it’s more “spiritual” to become a vegetarian, buy Organic Foods, practice yoga and meditate, but then you find yourself judging those who don’t do all these things, you fell into an ego trap. If you think it’s more “spiritual” riding a bike or public transport at work, but then you’re judging those in the car, you fell into an ego trap. If you think it’s more “spiritual” to stop watching tv because it cancels your brain, but then you’re judging those who still do, you fell into an ego trap. If you think it’s more “spiritual” to avoid reading newspapers and gossip magazines, but then you judge those who read them, you fell into an ego trap. If you think it’s more “spiritual” listening to classical music or sounds of nature, but then you’re judging who listens to commercial music, you fell into an ego trap. You always have to be careful about the feeling of “superiority”. it is the most important clue we have to realize that we are dealing into an ego trap. The ego is cleverly hidden in noble thoughts like to start a vegetarian diet or use the bicycle and then turn into a sense of superiority towards those who do not follow the same spiritual path.” ~ Mooji

“Where do you belong? The full moon of May 18 (2:11 pm PT) is a Blue Moon with the power to heal the heart and re-connect to your true path.

This full moon is called a “seasonal Blue Moon,” which is the third of four full moons this spring. Full of promise, the blue moon falls in the area of the sky called Anuradha, the Vedic “star of success.”

Symbolized by a staff (weapon), Anuradha is also the star of the lotus flower. The flower of Anuradha grows in the muddy depths of Scorpio’s mysterious waters. Once it blooms, it offers the spiritual qualities of love and devotion.

Under this full moon, strengthening relationships and defining healthy boundaries is highly supported. Anuradha is the celestial home of the sun-god of friendship and love, Mitra. This benevolent deity radiates the sense of belonging and connectivity within families and communities. Anuradha’s special power lies in its ability to find commonalities among differences, and connect us to a greater sense of unity and self-acceptance.
Realistic Saturn and illusion-shattering Ketu have a lot of transformative influence on the world right now.  Since May 8, these two shadowy forces have joined in the energetic star of Purva Ashadha, where they will remain for the rest of the year.   It may not be possible to ignore or make excuses for ongoing problems or dysfunctional relationships, but a creative power is gaining momentum for new and sustainable solutions.

Mindful Mercury is completely combust the sun on May 21, giving this full moon a unique power to deconstruct preconceived notions and ideas. Be aware of the possibility of miscommunication now, and stay open for totally new and surprising information in the weeks to come.

This full moon is celebrated as Buddha Purnima, the birthday of the Buddha who taught illumination through the steady focus of mind. Like the powerful focus of a warrior, this rare Anuradha blue moon emanates courage to step forward into new realms of relationship and belonging.”
