Happy New Moon in Aquarius!

New Moon let's fly

“The New Moon on February 4th falls in the sign of Aquarius and holds beautiful, abundant, glittering energy for us all.

This is a New Moon to make plans and take action. This is a New Moon to begin new projects and new ventures. This is a New Moon to leap from our comfort zones and go after our wildest dreams and wishes.

Under the unique vibration of this Aquarius New Moon, you are going to be encouraged to take that leap, and to upgrade your life to a whole new level.

No more playing small, no more dumbing down your life or following the status quo, this is a time to rise and claim your power. This is a time to live up to the truth of your soul.

It is time to take your crown. It is time to sit upon the throne of your life and command with an open heart and an open mind.

It is time for you to take your place, to get out of the shadows, and birth forth into the light.

You must put an end to the bad habits, to the repeated patterns, to the beliefs that are leaving you stuck, and the only way to do this, the only way to begin with this journey is to love yourself, to release yourself from judgement, and to begin embracing all that you are.

It is possible to manifest an abundance of beautiful moments here on this earthly dimension, but it all begins with our mindset. It all begins with how well we listen to our soul and rise up in order to express that soul energy forward in our lives.

Under this New Moon energy, we have to stand tall in who we are. We have to give, we have to live, we have to allow all that we are to radiate out. We have to welcome in this energy into every corner of our lives, and then begin taking action to ensure that it sticks.”

“Wolves and Women have much in common. Both share a wild spirit. Women and Wolves are instinctual creatures, able to sense the unseen. They are loyal, protective of their packs and of their pups. They are wild and beautiful. Both have been hunted and captured. Even in captivity, one can see in the eyes of a Woman, or a Wolf, the longing to run free, and the determination that should the opportunity arise, Whoosh, they will be gone…..” ~ CLARISSA PINKOLA ESTÉS, [WOMEN WHO RUN WITH THE WOLVES].

When I am among the trees, especially the willows and the honey locust, equally the beech, the oaks and the pines, they give off such hints of gladness. I would almost say that they save me, and daily. I am so distant from the hope of myself, in which I have goodness, and discernment, and never hurry through the world but walk slowly, and bow often. Around me the trees stir in their leaves and call out, “Stay awhile.” The light flows from their branches. And they call again, “It’s simple,” they say, “and you too have come into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled with light, and to shine.” ~Mary Oliver (1935-2019)

Happy New Moon and Solar Eclipse!

“If you thought life was about to go back to normal post-holidays, buckle your seatbelt, because the craziness isn’t over yet: There are a few major astrological events going down in January 2019.

The new moon in Capricorn on January 5, followed by a partial solar eclipse on January 6, will have a serious impact on your life, no matter your zodiac sign, according to Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology.

The new moon and solar eclipse in Capricorn are happening with the planet Saturn, which rules this zodiac sign. “That means it’s a time to make a plan or resolution in life and a powerful time to start something new,” Page says.

Basically, if you’ve been wanting to get a new job or to make something happen, now is the time. “There’s a very strong push that says you should go after things in life,” she says.

These astrological events might set off a chain reaction that will impact your actions for the rest of the month, and maybe the rest of 2019. And heads up: There’s also going to be a lunar eclipse on January 21 that will also make an impact.

Still, none of this is necessarily a bad thing. “This is all about love, connectedness, and letting people be themselves without judgement,” Page says.

Basically, you’re going to get out there and grab life by the balls this month, and do some serious emotional growth while you’re at it. Sounds like the New Year is going to get off to an awesome start.”
