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 October 19th New Moon falls in the sign of Libra and will be calling on all of us to find balance in our lives.
We need both our heart and mind to operate in this world as each holds its own unique intelligence and wisdom. However, many of us get so caught up in our thoughts and mental processes that we forget about the intuitive, softer guidance that our heart can also bring.
Your heart has many messages to offer you, especially under all of this cosmic energy, so use these New Moon vibes to start tuning in and paying attention.
On a day-to-day level, this New Moon will be helping you to understand how you are choosing to spend your energy.
If something has been taking up too much of your time, or you are struggling to keep on top of things, this New Moon may force you to finally create some balance.
Just the same, if you have been procrastinating with a project or struggling to commit to decisions in your life, this New Moon will also be guiding you to find the balance and start taking more action.
No matter what message is delivered to you under this New Moon, it is all going to come back to how you can get into balance and find equilibrium in your inner and outer worlds.
For those who have not found balance in their lives, or for those who have been ignoring the cues from the Universe to get more aligned, this New Moon may deliver some events or feelings that force you to do so.
There is a slightly abrasive energy surrounding this New Moon, which can cause you to feel scattered, off balance and chaotic, but as long as you pay attention to what needs to be done and find your balance, you are going to sail through just fine.
If you find yourself feeling off-sorts with this New Moon energy, ask yourself how you can bring more grounding and balance into your life, and try to approach things one step at a time. Feeling scattered is a clear sign that balance is needed, so pay attention.
In fact, the reason for this intensity is that the Universe is gearing up to present all of us with some much needed gifts and rewards which will come to fruition over the coming months.
All New Moons represent a time of planting seeds and laying down new ideas for the future, and whatever you plant or conjure up during this New Moon is likely to be extremely abundant and prosperous come Full Moon time.
Ultimately, October’s New Moon is extremely lucky and holds a lot of potential, you just need to be patient and pay attention to the cues from the Universe.”

“The October 5th Full Moon falls in the fire sign of Aries and is going to bring an intensity and passion to all of our lives.
The last month for many of us has been about resting, contemplating and releasing the old for the new to emerge. We have been guided by the cosmos to take a gentle approach and to be patient when it comes to going after what we want.
We have also been reminded by Mother Earth with the changing of seasons to prepare for a shift and to give ourselves time to acclimate to the new vibrations that are on offer to us.
All of this energy has been with us since the watery, gentle Pisces Full Moon back in early September, but now the tides are turning.
With the October Full Moon in Aries we are being asked to step up, take action and start claiming back our lives.
No more can we hide in the shadows, no more can we spend time resting and contemplating, instead the time has come act.
We must find our strength no matter what has been going on for us or how hopeless it seems, we must find our strength and we must solider ahead.
When the Full Moon falls in Aries it is a reminder that there are always going to be obstacles in life. There are always going to be things that you have to overcome or things that are going to get you down, but when you believe in yourself, when you tune into your heart’s desire and know yourself, anything is possible.
Aries energy is about believing in yourself so much that any obstacles are viewed as being small in comparison.
Aries energy is about trusting yourself, finding your independence and marching forward in spite of it all in the direction that you know is right. It is about developing a greater sense of self and knowing who you truly are.
Living in the past is no longer an option. Living in the shadows is no longer an option. The time has come to rise. The time has come to emerge and to take action in whatever way feels right for you.
No matter what obstacles are in your way, get clear about what you want and then take steps to making it happen. The Aries Full Moon will support you with your leap of faith, you just have to take the first step.”

“During a Total Solar Eclipse, the Sun, Moon and Earth will be in complete alignment. The three cosmic forces, the holy trinity of our Universe, will come together as one, almost like a grand reset that will help to bring about the start of a new cycle.
The August 21st Solar Eclipse falls in the sign of Leo and will be inspiring you to transform so you can start a new chapter that is more aligned with your soul.
Solar Eclipses are like amplified New Moons and often bring about transformation, new beginnings and changes. Their potency can sometimes be intimidating, but it is important to remember that they always put us on the right path.
The ancients believed that during a Solar Eclipse, the light of the Sun would give way to the darkness in order to be transformed. This momentary darkness was believed to be a highly spiritual, an awakening moment that would help the Sun to return even brighter and stronger in the sky.
To aid in this awakening process, the ancients believed that divinely inspired information from higher realms would be sent down to Earth during the window of the Eclipse.
In fact, the ancients believed that when a Solar Eclipse fell in the sign of Leo it indicated that there would be some ‘enlightening’ message regarding the King.
Of course, in the US we no longer have Kings but we do have leaders that govern the country. For this reason, many astrologers have turned their eyes towards the President and are curious how this Eclipse is going to affect him.
It is much more interesting however, to take a look at the bigger picture influence of this Eclipse and what is really going on behind the scenes. It seems that for the US as a country, big changes are in the works and it is likely that this Eclipse is going to bring about lasting and profound changes.
This new journey will take time to develop, and all the facts may not be clear just yet, so focus on aligning yourself with your soul, your higher being and your inner essence and the rest will take care of itself.
New beginnings are on the horizon for everyone, but it all starts with raising our consciousness and allowing our inner light to lead the way.
Happy Solar Eclipse!”
