Happy Full Moon!

Full Moon

“Full Moon energies bring what’s been hidden from our ego consciousness to light.
As we re-engage in the world, this Scorpio Full Moon might reflect back to us what we really yearn for – those things in life that bring us peace and joy and satisfaction.
While this watery Full Moon brings up issues of letting go of what no longer serves life, it also has a powerful hit from Neptune in Pisces, opening us to compassion, not only for all people suffering during this pandemic, but also for ourselves.
Neptune also gives us the tool of the creative imagination to help us through this death and rebirth of our culture.
As we release the emotional wounds that keep us repeating our insanity, we need to fill those spaces with possibilities. And that’s what Neptune can do for us.
Living in our active imaginations can change our habits quicker than anything else.
Since Mercury is conjunct the Taurus Sun, we have the ability to see and communicate what is broken in our society, as well as what expectations we need to let go of in trying to return to ‘normal’.
Instead, we can be looking for opportunities to bring something into play that people need.
Something many of us have spent our lifetimes discovering and learning. Now is the time for us to lead the way into a better future…”
~Cathy Pagano, excerpt from Mystic Mamma

Happy New Moon!

“Our opportunity to build a better future is here. Under the power of the Taurus New Moon, we are being called to think about what we wish to create. We are being asked to set a goal and take small, methodical steps in order to achieve it.

The Taurus New Moon on April 22, reminds us that a grand new beginning is on the horizon. This grand new beginning has not yet arrived, but it is slowly drawing closer, and this New Moon is our stepping stone on the path towards it.

The sky will be dark under the Taurus New Moon, but this darkness only serves to draw us within. We are being asked to fantasize about where we wish to head, but we are also being asked to sit with our shadows too.
Sitting with your shadows is about acknowledging your deepest fears. It is acknowledging what is behind your anxiety or behind that feeling of insecurity that floats up from time to time.

On this New Moon, identify your fears. Expose them, allow yourself to hear them. Write them down so they are in the light, and then you may just find that they no longer have such a grip.

There are challenging energies that are being stirred in the world around us now. We don’t need astrology or Mother Moon to tell us that. But what we can understand and learn from the cosmos above, is that a new cycle is on the way.

Just like the Moon goes through its own phases, so do we all, and so does the state of the world.

Uranus, the planet of change is very active under this New Moon. Uranus likes to shake things in order to awaken us, but its presence can also feel upsetting and chaotic.

Uranus wants the ways of the past to crumble so it can revolutionize and rebuild something new.

Under all the challenging vibrations this April New Moon offers, there is a vibration of hope too. My wish is that you allow this vibration of hope to enter your being, allow it to flood your entire mind, body, and soul, and give yourself permission to start daydreaming about this new life you wish to create.”

Man on Moon

“It’s during the darkest hours that we must focus on the light.  The full moon of April 7, (7:35 pm PT) is the closest and brightest super moon of 2020.

In Vedic Astrology, this full moon is in Chitra, a nakshatra of inner wisdom, truth, and clarity. Chitra is symbolized by a shining diamond, a jewel that’s created under tremendous pressure and heat. Chitra full moon gives solutions to our problems, and precious insight, even under the pressure of crisis and tragedy. 

 
Since the emergence of the novel Coronavirus at the beginning of 2020, Rahu, the head of the eclipse snake, has been in the stormy star of Ardra, while Ketu, the tail of the snake, has been in Mula, a fierce star of destruction in Scorpio’s stinger. 

Historically, eclipses in Mula, like a scorpion’s sting, accompany shock and upheaval. Incidentally, there was a Mula eclipse in 1918 at the beginning of the Spanish flu pandemic. Another Mula lunar eclipse occurred just 6 weeks before the bombing of Hiroshima in 1945, and before the 9/11 attacks as well. The most recent eclipse in Mula occurred just last December, at the onset of the tragic COVID-19 pandemic.

Though frightening, Mula is also the star of Divine Mother Kali in her all-loving and spiritually awakened form.  Mula literally means root or foundation, and asks us to get to the root of what sustains us, to make sure it’s healthy, strong and resilient. 

It may feel like the foundation of the world is cracking now, but it’s also an opportunity to rebuild a stronger, deeper foundation from the bottom up.  Slowing down to assess your life’s path, and meditating on your root chakra is a grounding way to use this transformative time.”

“We’re at the dawning of something strange and transformative, and the new moon of March 24th is a powerful gateway through it.

The new moon will be in the area of the sky known as Uttara Bhadrapada, at the final degrees of watery Pisces – the last sign of the zodiac.  The stars in the constellation of Pisces are ancient symbols of the beginnings and endings of great cycles. Uttara Bhadrapada is associated with loss, death and fire, including the funeral pyre at the end of life.  This is a new moon that burns, but also calls forth the Piscean waters of rebirth.

The new moon falls just 4 days after the equinox, and is at a critical juncture that marks a whole new Vedic astrological cycle — the Vedic New year. We are now leaving behind the Year of Vikari, a word that literally translates as “Sick, ill, or diseased,” and entering the Year of Shavari, which translates as “twilight or night.”

Twilight is a mystical time, with deep spiritual potential, and this certainly is a transitional time between darkness and light. A pull toward the inner realm is growing in the year to come, especially for those who seek knowledge and self-understanding.


This new moon initiates the sacred waxing moon of Navaratri – the ‘nine nights of the Goddess’ celebrated in spring and fall.  In the waxing moon nights to come, nine different Hindu goddesses, all aspects of the divine feminine, are called on to heal and protect the world.
It’s said that whenever an overpowering force of negativity arises in the world, the goddess Durga is the one who stops it in its tracks.”
~Kari Field, excerpt from AnandaShree Vedic Astrology

Butterfly moon

“The karmic drama unfolding across the world is The End of Everything That Never Worked Right in the First Place.
As old systems crumble, we must harvest magic out of chaos.
…The mimeograph of our time is the internet, last bastion of global freedom.
Even though corporate ownership is pushing for more control… and even though, now that Google has gone into the pharmaceutical business, alternative healing sites are dropping off their search algorithms, for the most part the web is still within public domain.
Which means we have the ability to spread news counter to corporate views…
Aquarius adds the telepathic communication of the real worldwide web of collective consciousness, announcing the great change rising from the soul of the world everywhere people get done with being puppets on a string.
To harvest magic from chaos we must join together in exposing distortions, speaking truth, untwisting corporate twists, and envisioning the real human being rising up out of a corrupt system.
Don’t buy into the lies. Don’t let yourself be talked out of claiming the magic of an evolving species that has a lot of love left inside.
Feel the change sweeping the soul and let it out in your own way.”
~Mark Borax, from Mystic Mamma

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.”

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.”
