Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon Art by Yuumei

“The June 17th Full Moon will sparkle brightly in Sagittarius, sitting just degrees away from the Galactic Center. Being so close to the Galactic Center is going to amplify and upgrade the energy of this Full Moon and raise the frequency of planet Earth.

All of us, for the days surrounding the Full Moon, are going to have the opportunity to shift into a higher frequency and higher vibration. All of us are going to have the opportunity to tap into higher realms and to explore the height of our creativity.

This is a dreamy Full Moon that will amplify our intuitive gifts and allow us to unlock the wisdom we already have inside of us.

We may forget, but everything we need, every piece of the puzzle was given to us before we came into this body, and on a Full Moon like this, it will be easier for us to remember and gain access to this wisdom.

While there is this beautiful intuitive, creative, and dreamy energy surrounding this Full Moon, it also has a fiery quality too.

Under the light of this Full Moon, we need to remember the fire within. We need to remember that we hold the bow and arrow, and we have the power and potential to hit our mark as long as we take aim and trust the way the wind blows.

With your target and your arrow all lined up, you can begin moving in that direction. Trusting the wisdom of what you desire and the ebb and flow of the wind to guide you.

Overall, the June Full Moon will be lighting the fire within and guiding our way forward through the coming Eclipse Season. It will be encouraging us to peel back the layers to uncover our truth, and to trust our intuition and dreams.

The magical Sagittarius Full Moon is truly one of the best of the year and will be helping all of us to elevate to that next level.”

New Moon Gemini - CS

“The month of June opens with the Gemini New Moon on the 3rd. This New Moon is all about truth, communication, and self-expression.

This New Moon is drawing us to get clear on what our truth is and to work on expressing how we really feel.

Under the darkness of this New Moon, we are also going to feel motivated to take action in some area of our lives.

While New Moons often cause us to retreat within and into the shadows of our own heart and soul, this New Moon is really championing us to take initiative and get things done.

There might be things in our lives that crop up around the Gemini New Moon that encourage us to act, make a decision, or put our foot down.

We may also have to step up and take responsibility for what we want. If there is something we wish to communicate or speak up about, the New Moon will be supporting us to find our courage and strength.

As Oprah once said- “you only get in life what you have the courage to ask for.” And, under the spell of the New Moon, we must not be afraid to speak up and share what it is we desire.

While the Gemini New Moon is wonderful for all forms of self-expression and communication, we also have to be mindful of how we choose to communicate and what truths we wish to share with others.

If we want to communicate effectively, if we want to get to the truth of something, we first have to learn how to really listen.

Under the dark New Moon of June, don’t hide away from your true power. Don’t squash down your emotions or ignore the gentle pulls and nudges of your heart.

Use this energy to rise up, to speak up, and to stand up for all you believe in. Use this energy to take action and to take responsibility for the world you wish to create and the reality you wish to walk in.

We are not on this planet alone. Making connections, sharing our stories, listening to other stories, has always been the foundation of society and of humanity. Let’s get back to that. Let’s get back to story time and open up about our journey, who we are, and what inspires us.

Let us find the confidence to share our truth, to talk about our weaknesses and our strengths, and to celebrate the stories of others, for sharing and listening is how we inspire, grow, and change the world.”

“Where do you belong? The full moon of May 18 (2:11 pm PT) is a Blue Moon with the power to heal the heart and re-connect to your true path.

This full moon is called a “seasonal Blue Moon,” which is the third of four full moons this spring. Full of promise, the blue moon falls in the area of the sky called Anuradha, the Vedic “star of success.”

Symbolized by a staff (weapon), Anuradha is also the star of the lotus flower. The flower of Anuradha grows in the muddy depths of Scorpio’s mysterious waters. Once it blooms, it offers the spiritual qualities of love and devotion.

Under this full moon, strengthening relationships and defining healthy boundaries is highly supported. Anuradha is the celestial home of the sun-god of friendship and love, Mitra. This benevolent deity radiates the sense of belonging and connectivity within families and communities. Anuradha’s special power lies in its ability to find commonalities among differences, and connect us to a greater sense of unity and self-acceptance.
Realistic Saturn and illusion-shattering Ketu have a lot of transformative influence on the world right now.  Since May 8, these two shadowy forces have joined in the energetic star of Purva Ashadha, where they will remain for the rest of the year.   It may not be possible to ignore or make excuses for ongoing problems or dysfunctional relationships, but a creative power is gaining momentum for new and sustainable solutions.

Mindful Mercury is completely combust the sun on May 21, giving this full moon a unique power to deconstruct preconceived notions and ideas. Be aware of the possibility of miscommunication now, and stay open for totally new and surprising information in the weeks to come.

This full moon is celebrated as Buddha Purnima, the birthday of the Buddha who taught illumination through the steady focus of mind. Like the powerful focus of a warrior, this rare Anuradha blue moon emanates courage to step forward into new realms of relationship and belonging.”

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.”

“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.”

“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.”

Happy Full Moon and Spring Equinox!

Moon art Duy Huynh

“Under the light of the March 20-21st Libra Super Moon, we are going to be guided to enter into the new. We are going to be guided to get to zero with ourselves, and to find that place of wholeness that resides within.

 

March’s Full Moon opens a portal to a new wave of energy. It falls around the same time as the Equinox, which is the start of the astrological year and the beginning of a new cycle.

In order to enter into the new, we have to purge and release the old. We have to wipe the slate clean and be ready to begin again. We have to return ourselves to ground zero.

Zero is the number of infinite potential, and it’s no coincidence that the March Full Moon falls at zero degrees of Libra.

At the time of the Full Moon, we will actually have three planets in the cosmos aligned at the vibration of number zero, which means the Universe is just going to be blossoming with potential.

This energy is going to activate us. It is going to recharge us, it is going to tweak and tune the cords of our energy, and prepare us to walk into this new wave.

This new portal of energy is at a higher vibration than we have experienced before. It is going to help us awaken to new potentials and opportunities. It is going to open and guide us into higher realms of consciousness.

To tap into this energy, the Libra Moon will be calling us to take inventory of how we are using our energy and to assess whether we are using it in a way that serves us or drains us.

You are an important work of art, and just like an artist balances colors or a chef balances flavors, you need to learn to balance yourself. You need to learn to treat yourself like the precious gem that you are and to create as much harmony, as much support, and as much love in your life as possible.

Don’t wait for others to do this for you, take control of your own life and begin balancing and aligning yourself in whatever way calls to you. Ask the Moon to be your guide and then when ready, walk confidently into this new portal of energy.

Awaken to the new potentials that live there, and don’t be afraid to shed and let go of things that no longer deserve your energy.”
