Happy Birthday to one of my favorite people to ever inhabit this planet. His presence is forever felt.
“A Black Moon occurs when two new moon’s fall in the same month. On September 30th, the New Moon will peak in Libra.
September’s Black Moon is filled with positive aspects and plenty of opportunities. In fact, the entire week leading up to the Black Moon and the days that follow it, are going to be extremely positive and peaceful.
The energy of this Black Moon is so supported by the other planets and it is very likely we will all be experiencing great epiphanies, opportunities and even, miracles.
In fact, this Black Moon is going to deliver an extremely positive force, helping us to manifest all of our greatest dreams, wishes and desires.
If you have been looking to change or shift something in your life, if you have been building new ideas or projects, this Black Moon is really going to give you an amazing push in the right direction.
Whatever has been troubling you, whatever has been shrouded in doubt and confusion may also become clearer to you around the time of this Black Moon.
If you are in doubt about anything in your life, you may find it beneficial to wait to see what energies and what opportunities the Black Moon brings you.
Now, this Black Moon is going to be helping us all to awaken to these endings, accept them and perhaps also feel liberated by them.
Overall, the Black Moon is going to bring an extremely positive force and is going to help all of us to change directions in our lives in some way.
This is definitely a welcomed change and one that is going to help us finally bring a close to all that we no longer need. This is going to help us spring forward in the right direction with clarity and positivity and will help us all to feel a burst of fresh energy and inspiration.
Pay attention to what transpires for you around the Black Moon, for it is sure to be guiding you towards your highest path.”

“The Lunar Eclipse in Pisces is an emotional high tide. It makes me think of being on a surfboard, scudding across a beast of a wave as the crest begins to fold and you’re wondering whether you’re going to stay upright or be flung head over heels by the force of the water.
The Moon is in a tight conjunction to Chiron which means we are very sensitive to being hurt. In Pisces we are wide open with no defenses, especially as the Moon squares warrior Mars.
In fact, it may be the case that we are pushed to let down our defenses and really allow ourselves to feel.
Chiron is both the one who wounds and the one who heals the wound. The wound itself is the way to healing – like cutting open an infected sore until it bleeds clear…knowing that sometimes the path to healing must begin with a painful cut…
And our part is to surrender, to accept that healing is needed and necessary, to put trust in the universe that what comes is for our benefit.
There is something sacred about this painful process. The Gods haven’t abandoned us, they are carrying us. They are the giant wave beneath our feet…”

“The Full Moon in Scorpio is bringing light to all the shadow dynamics that lie underneath the surface- the very things we don’t want to look at or have been avoiding dealing with are likely to come to Light right now.
The Full Moon is at the midpoint of Saturn and the North Node- which is pretty potent on many levels…Both Saturn and the North Node push us beyond our edge- and it’s not the comfy, cozy familiar space we are used to.
Many of us spend a good deal of our present lifetime resisting our Saturn/North node growth- and yet it’s only when we get aligned with it that we will start to evolve into new directions, dimensions and frequencies…
Steering clear of power/control dynamics with others and instead using this energy to dig deep and get to the root of patterns playing out that are Sourced within is the only way out and through.
This is not a time to act impulsively or restlessly or to react out of anger- but instead a time to reign it in, think of the long term consequences and get your lower will aligned with your Higher Self and it’s trajectory.”

Every New Moon is a cosmic doorway to a fresh start; New Moons allow us to shed old skin, and break ground for new cycles. The start of every lunation marks the ideal time to pursue an emotional and spiritual reboot, and this is especially true for a New Moon occurring in the sign of the pioneer, warrior and pathfinder. Raw and impetuous like the new life that must fight and compete to ensure its own survival, Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac for a reason; without its proactive, assertive push, there would be no separation from the source. No manifestation. No evolution. No existence. It’s this very same push that initiates us into a brand new phase of self-actualization, urging us to reclaim the Self, to fulfill our individual destinies and to do what it takes to overcome our inner and outer struggles.”

“This year’s Spring Equinox arrives right in between eclipses. So much energy is invoked during the wild and changing winds of eclipse season. Moments that feel fated, moments that are eery, enchanting and exquisitely potent for our healing process. We are asked to step up our game and step into our lives in ways that may scare us, excite us and rile us. No matter what we do, the equinox is here to awaken us. Awaken us to the change that is coming no matter if we are ready or resistant. Awaken us to energy that needs to bud, burst and bloom through us. Awaken to the fact that we are seasonal beings that need to run with the wild rhythms we live within.”

“This Pisces New Moon on March 8-9 is not only a Super Moon, meaning it is closest to Earth and so has a stronger effect on the tides and our bodies and emotions, but also the first of four eclipses this year…
All eclipses disrupt the Earth’s electromagnetic fields and therefore each of ours… A solar eclipse occurs at a New Moon when the Sun, Earth and Moon’s planes align with each other, gathering and focusing their energies into a new shape, a new resonance.
A new door opens, a new story begins. Just as a regular New Moon is a time to plant new seeds, a solar eclipse is a time to let go of old, stagnant energy shells, so the new life energy that’s been gestating within can begin to grow.
As we end this astrological cycle with a solar eclipse, the electromagnetic fields that have been resonating in all of us change. And we are changed.
It is time to Evolve.”

“As one world dies, another is born. As one Age of the world passes away, a new Age is being born in secret places of the heart…
We are the midwives and healers, grandmothers and grandfathers of this new world, for each of us is bringing in this new collective life force.
The more whole we are, the more we know and love ourselves, the more embodied we are, the more aligned and true this new energy will be, laying a strong foundation for the Age of Aquarius…
So with this New Moon in Aquarius, we have to stay true to our uniqueness but drop the exclusivity that makes us think we’re better than others. Aquarius is concerned with the group Mind. That means how we all contribute to this Mind.
Many of us want to live in a grown-up world, where people actually are courteous, creative, cooperative and capable. Where each of us is responsible for the world we live in.
To live otherwise is to act childish in the worst possible ways. That is what our patriarchal society would have us do. Stay children and we’ll take care of all your needs IF you do what you’re told. This old story has had its day.
We each know in our hearts that the most important things in life are love and our connection to each other, our animal cousins and the Earth. So let’s expand our sense of community to all these realms and find that future story that benefits all of us.”

“The March New Moon falls on the 27-28th, in the fiery sign of Aries. As the first New Moon of the astrological year, this is a potent time for new beginnings and for upgrading the parts of your life that no longer serve you.
All New Moons represent new beginnings to some degree, however the Aries New Moon is definitely the strongest and most powerful for setting intentions and starting fresh.
As the first sign in the zodiac, Aries energy represents leadership, new ideas and taking action. Being a fire sign, Aries is all about making plans, pushing forward and charting a new course.
The Universe is only going to be giving you this fiery, fresh start energy for a few weeks, so make the most of it by setting intentions and finding ways to upgrade and update your life.
Leading up to the New Moon, the Universe is definitely going to be guiding you to ditch the old and embrace the new and the more open minded you can be, the easier it will be for you to transform your life.
In order to make positive changes in your life, you need to have a certain level of self-awareness. You need to have a certain understanding of what is working for you and what is bringing you down in life.
If you want change, if you want to create something new, if you want a fresh new start, this New Moon is there to support and help you every step of the way. All you need to do is set the intention and take that first step forward, everything else will fall into place after that.”

“The March 12th Full Moon falls in the earthy sign of Virgo. As the energy of this Full Moon lingers for the next two weeks, we are all going to enter into a time of self-healing.
Virgo is typically the sign associated with thinking. Deep thinking. Over thinking. Virgo thinking is often self-critical, however when channelled in the right way, Virgo thinking can be extremely enlightening.
Virgo energy is warrior energy. It represents strength and inner power. Virgo doesn’t need a man by her side, she has the power and strength to rise up alone.
Virgo comes into her strength by tapping into that inner warrior that lives inside of the heart.
We all have Virgo energy inside of us, we all have Virgo somewhere in our natal astrology chart, so chances are we are all going to feel the feminine power and strength arising from this Full Moon.
It is time to enter into warrior mode. Gone are the days of feeling sorry for yourself or being the victim. Gone are the days of getting irritated by every challenge or setback that life has brought you so far. Gone are the days of resisting what the Universe is trying to show you.
It is time to step up. It is time to rise up and claim your power, to claim your self-worth and to find your true inner strength.
On the night of the Full Moon, certain planets will shift into what astrologers call an irritated rectangle. As the name suggests, this Full Moon could bring irritations to the surface.
But this is not to irritate you, rather it is to help you clear away all that is no longer serving you. When things come to the surface it is because they are ready to be released, so instead of feeling frustrated, give yourself permission to step up and release.
As one of my favourite poets, Rumi says- if you are irritated by every rub how will you be polished?
And that is exactly what this Virgo Full Moon is offering us, she is offering us the chance to be polished and cleansed so we may rise up into the strength within.”

“With four planets in Aries and five in Pisces, this eclipse speaks of over-due endings and fresh starts.
A new way of being is in reach, born of wisdom gleaned from past experience and freedom from shackles that no longer bind.
If we’ve been waiting so long for change, struggling with conditions that seem forever stuck, held back by old habits, unhealthy relationships, past pain or memories too good to let go, we now encounter a window of opportunity to leap forward into the new.
As such, this eclipse sorts those who truly want to change NOW, from those who like the idea of change but ‘maybe I’ll just wait and see’.
With Venus, Mars, Uranus and Eris in Aries, we have a veritable powerhouse of energy to invest in starting over anew, cutting the ties which bind us to the past and seeing the world through new eyes, staying strong in hope, resolved in our intent and committed to walking a fresh path from here on in…
If we await incontrovertible proof we’re doing the right thing, we may miss this opportunity in a haze of anxiety and fear.
The truth is we can never really know, for every decision lives its own life once set in motion by our thoughts, words and deeds.
All we can do is follow the nudges within that speak of possibility and potential, of courage and commitment, of a path bearing many crossroads that will test our mettle, open our heart and strengthen our soul.
This is a time of choices and those made now with a bold heart and courageous spirit carry alchemical force to change our lives.
It’s okay to feel fear, to experience the buzz of anxiety as we contemplate life renewed and imagine walking away from circumstances that have consumed so much of us to date.
The challenge is to stand firm despite it and make the change that liberates possibility and releases potential.
For in doing so, the coming six months promise profound renewal which will anchor us ever deeper into a life both extraordinary and true.”
