Happy New Moon!

“The Pisces New Moon falls on February 23rd and beckons us to dive deep into the ocean of our soul. The magical harmony of the Pisces New Moon will guide us within, helping to open and unlock our intuition, our hidden depths, our creative potential, and our connection with the Divine.
The Pisces New Moon whispers to you- when you allow yourself to float in your own waters, you will discover the sea of potential that you are. Not all potential can be unlocked straight away, rather it is a slow process that ebbs and flows throughout the specially orchestrated timing of your life. Under the 2020 February New Moon, there are light vibrations that will help unlock more of your gifts, that is the things you were destined to bring and share with this world. Despite how insignificant you may feel compared to the Moon and the galaxies of stars around you, the truth is they are you, they shine only because you see them. It is your eyes gazing upon the night sky that makes it twinkle. Your power is you and your potential, endless.”

Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon by Alouk

“The February Full Moon falls on the 8th or 9th of the month, depending on your time zone. It rests in the sign of Leo, and its energy comes to tend to the fire that lives within our hearts.

It comes to clear away all that dims our light and separates us from feeling connected to our journey.

Leo is ruled by the Sun, so whenever we have a Full Moon in the sign of the Sun, it’s extra special.

When Leo holds space for the Full Moon, it’s like a ray of light shining down on all that feels dark and heavy in our lives.

Leo is a fire sign that reminds us to connect with all that lights us up. It reminds us to connect with our inner fire, with our inner Sun, and to remember that life is for experiencing rather than controlling.

What sets your soul on fire? What fans your inner flame? What brings you a sense of purpose as you move through the experiences of life?

There is something strengthening, motivating, and restorative about this Full Moon too, not just because it falls in the sign of Leo the lion, but also because it forms a harmonious alignment with the planet of motivation, Mars.

Mars will be like a motivational speaker at our side, championing us along as we take on any challenges or projects during this time.

Mars’ energy will help inspire us to push past any fears that are holding us back or keeping our inner light small.

Put yourself on the line, even if it makes you feel vulnerable, even if it’s scary, because that’s how you grow, that’s how you learn, that’s how you keep leveling up on your journey.”

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming… and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.” ~Theodore Roosevelt

Happy New Moon!

The new moon of Jan 24 (1:42 PM PT) marks an important cosmic turning point. Saturn, the planet of limitation and structure, is finally moving signs into Capricorn, where its grounding influence can help make long-term goals a reality. If you’ve been waiting to see results, this new moon heralds real progress.

Like Saturn, the new moon also falls in sidereal Capricorn, doubling the influence of this practical and determined sign. Specifically, this dark mid-winter moon falls in the Vedic nakshatra, or lunar mansion, known as Shravana. Sometimes called the ear of God, or the star of learningShravana magnifies the power to listen and communicate ideas. It also slows things down so you can better absorb knowledge and observe the world around you.

The Hindu goddess Saraswati—the mother of music, sound, and language—dwells in Shravana. Like the ancient river named for her, Saraswati births words and ideas that flow invisibly from our hearts and minds. Subtle messages from the spirit world can also be heard around this time, so listen closely.

Meanwhile, Saturn’s mission in Capricorn is to build a more solid and sustainable structure for the future. In Vedic Astrology, the sign of Capricorn is called Makara, which means crocodile. Crocodiles are tenacious survivors that take things slow and move with strength. With Saturn in Capricorn, you can work through challenges that may have previously seemed insurmountable, and take on new responsibilities in your work or home life.

Since the beginning of 2017, Saturn has been in the idealistic sign of Sagittarius, creating waves of disillusionment and casting a cynical eye on corruption, hypocrisy, and the unsustainable status quo. Since Saturn refuses to support blind faith in Sagittarius, you may have found yourself chasing your dreams in a sea of self-doubt, or wondering how to move forward. Now, with Saturn in Capricorn until January of 2023, you may find yourself capable of building what before you had only dreamed of.

This Shravana new moon marks a time of profound change. It represents nothing less than a paradigm shift, so be prepared to step into your power as never before.”
