Happy New Moon!

New Moon by Kingabrit

“What’s your passion and how do you follow it? The new moon of May 4 (3:46 pm PT) has a creative spark that can set the heart aflame. If you are ready to step into higher potential, this new moon contains a wealth of inner strength, power, and personal commitment.

In Vedic Astrology, the new moon falls in the area of the sky known as Bharani nakshatra, the star of the womb, also known as the star of restraint. Bharani symbolizes the divine feminine life force and the power of sexual energy to heal and regenerate.

Bharani is also the star of Yama, the Hindu god of death, who is responsible for collecting and directing those souls who have died toward a new womb and their ultimate rebirth.

Take heed, this is a time that may require flexibility and rearranging of priorities. The karmic task master, Saturn, stationed retrograde on April 29, and is positioned on the tail of the transformational eclipse snake, Ketu. This alignment is excellent for letting go of the past, reclaiming your heart, and clearing away old junk from closets and hidden spaces.  Old emotional patterns and habits can be broken up now, allowing for a clean slate to be put in its place.

Since April 10, Retrograde Jupiter has been positioned on Scorpio’s poisonous stinger. This volatile position of Jupiter challenges beliefs, religions, teachers, and political ideologies.  Pressure to break free from traditions and laws that no longer serve the greater good continues in the months to come.

May 6 is the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, when investments and commitments are said to multiply in value and strength.  This is an ideal time to set intentions, start projects, sign contracts, and make important purchases.  Akshaya Tritiya is a tithi (lunar day) that officially starts May 6 (2:47 pm PT) and ends on May 7 (1:47 pm PT).

Though it may be rough at times, Bharani new moon offers a powerful opportunity to reconnect with your inner strength, and to commit to your long-term visions and goals.  Illusions of the world can change quickly now, but the inner heart beats steadily on.”

Happy Full Moon!

Moon love

“On April 19, 2019, we have the second Libra Full Moon of the year. The first Libra Full Moon was back in March, and opened a portal of possibilities and change.

Since March 20, this portal of energy has been lifting and shifting us in different ways. It has been guiding us to find balance in our lives and to think about ways to elevate and lift ourselves higher.

This portal of energy has been beckoning us to make some changes so we can feel more aligned and more at one with ourselves. It has been guiding us to merge with the flow and rhythm of the Universe so we can unlock the field of possibilities that rest within.

While the first Libra Full Moon was about finding balance within, this second Libra Full Moon is about finding balance with others and with our relationships.

In order to achieve this, we first have to understand and realize our self-worth.

You are worthy of being loved just as you are. You are worthy of respect. You are worthy of forgiveness. You are worthy to be heard and listened to. Your feelings matter. You are important. And you deserve all of the relationships in your life to be aligned with this truth.

The more you love yourself, the more you value yourself, the less likely you are to tolerate relationships that throw you off course and out of balance.

The time has come to shift and pivot, and relationships are the focus. The Universe wants us to clear the way and to let go of relationships that are no longer necessary in order for us to keep continuing forward.

Allow the Moon to be your guide, as it will show you the cracks, the gaps, and what needs to be cleared so the new can arrive.

This Moon will shine a light on what needs to be repaired and fixed or it will let us know that the time has come to say goodbye.

There is some tense energy circling this Full Moon, but it is only there to help us take action and cut the cords with certain relationships once and for all.

The future is bright, and this Full Moon will be helping us to cut the cords, clear the way, and surround ourselves with those who lift us higher.”

Happy New Moon!

“We have been moving through a portal of energy. This energy was triggered on the Super Moon back in March and will continue until the Full Moon on April 19th.

The April New Moon on the 5th is the midpoint of this journey and is the marker where we get to decide if we are ready for something new.

On the night of the Aries New Moon, we are all going to be given the opportunity to embrace a new way of being and to keep moving through this portal of energy so we can evolve, grow, and renew.

The Aries New Moon is typically the best time for manifesting, setting goals, planting seeds, and making wishes. If you want a time of year for getting clear on your dreams and mapping out what the future will look and feel like, the Aries New Moon is one of the best.

Aries is fiery, it represents leadership and action, and on an Aries New Moon there is supercharged energy in the cosmos that can help bring us closer to the life that we desire.

On an Aries New Moon, we can send our wishes out to the Universe with confidence that they will be heard and that we will find the steps we need to turn them into realities.

While this is the gift of the Aries New Moon, the time has come to approach this energy differently. The time has come for us to lean in deeper to what is behind all of this, and to step out of the ego.

The problem with manifesting and dreaming about the future is that very often we get caught up in our ego.

Of course, on this physical journey, our ego is just as important as our soul, but the time has come to balance the scales. We have to add a new piece to this equation and learn how to surrender.

Surrendering is about trusting that your soul laid out a path for you before you came into this life.

While you always have free-will and the freedom to choose, your soul carefully planned the best course of action for you to take. Your soul laid out a blueprint of what it longed to achieve in this incarnation.

Your soul didn’t come here without a plan, and even though you don’t have conscious access to this entire plan, small glimmers and hints are sent to you as long as you learn how to surrender and trust the flow of your life.

We don’t have to force what is destined for us. We don’t have to chase and claw our way to our highest destiny. Our highest destiny is already unfolding; we just have to align with it and allow the Universe to take the lead.”
