Full Moon in Cancer/ Capricorn….Jan 12!

Every month Full Moons occur when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs. A Full Moon signals a time when you are able to see more clearly how certain dualities create tensions, but, can bring opportunities for growth and greater awareness! When you become aware of and merge the opposing energies you will feel more empowered and in control of your own life! Intuitively, you are seeking balance…whether you are conscience or unconscious, so, really pay attention to the messages and synchronicity! The energy at full moons are more intense…..feelings run high…..for all of us! Acting with Compassion as opposed to Anger and impatience is the better choice!

This  First Full Moon of 2017 is powerful and potent for sure! This is because  5 planets are involved forming a Cardinal Grand Cross! After the end of the long and challenging 2016….this energy will help us complete and usher in New Directions! Jupiter, (expansion) is involved and will magnify whatever is going on, so events may blow up disproportionately! We want to tap into the higher frequencies of this energy, so Best Practice, stay mindful….look at what IS possible! Be courageous and  choose a different way, the way of a happy heart!

Follow those feelings, ideas and insights that spark excitement and enthusiasm!

And….being impatient or impulsive, taking rash actions in not advised! Breathe and pause before you respond!

This Grand Cross is occurring in the signs that will effect  family vs work, relationships vs individual freedom! We are seeking to gain BALANCE and HARMONY in these 4 areas of life! There is also a very strong Pisces energy, (Spiritual) encouraging us to recommit to our Spiritual Path in 2017. Actually…..if we just remember…..this is a New Beginning ,a 1 year, the Year of Magic!                                                                                                                                                           Our INNER guidance system the the very best GPS for our own personal Magic! (The Way IN is the MAP for the Way OUT! )

Below is the Astro chart so you can visualize the Grand Cross and a Crystal  Grid to use in your FM ceremony!

                                                                                               

 

Planets involved….Moon in Cancer, family (moonstone), Sun conjunct  Pluto in Capricorn, work, career (Garnet) Jupiter in Libra, relationships (rose quartz) and Uranus in Aries, individual freedom and creativity, (Carnelian). All anchored by Venus, Neptune, and Mars in Pisces, amethyst (Spirit!)

Details for your Full Moon Meditation Ceremony and Release….

Full Moons are not  time sensitive as New Moons,so no worry to be out at the exact time, But…fyi, the time is 4:08 PM Jan 12 PST. The activity or degree  is occurring at 22 *  of all 4 signs.

Plan to go out under the moonlight if you can so you can soak in her amazing rays and stand in the center of this Grand Cross!  (Between the Setting Sun and the Rising Moon!)

Find your spot, have a journal!

Take in a few deep breaths, become fully present, connecting to your Higher self,and say a prayer that includes both asking for guidance and gratitude!

If you need to release….write it down, what ever it is…… and give it over to the Moon! Once that is done…..ask these questions… and wait for the messages.

*What changes need to take place in my home this year?

*What is the single most important thing  needed in my career that will create a greater sense of purpose,

well being, and security in my life?

*What is the best way to create Balance and Harmony in all areas of my life?

*How can I grow my Spiritual practice?

                               When your time is complete…again give thanks for all you have and for the messages received,                            ALLOW the Magic in the Moonlight to  to Begin!!!

 

Stay Inspired…..Connected….Empowered

Peace and Blessings

Full Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius Dec.13

fushia full moonFull Moon in Gemini/Sagittarius

December 13th

  4:05 PM PST

Full Moons always bring things and situations that were previously unknown into the light. It is a time when we are trying to gain balance! Emotions can run high as we seek to know the truth of situations!  What is being illuminated is reflected in the signs of the Sun and Moon. We are being asked to integrate these two energies! With this lunation, we are called upon to to utilize both our rational mind (Gemini) and our intuitive wisdom (Sagittarius) to resolve current issues!

This is also a trigger to the beautiful Jupiter Sextile Saturn aspect discussed in the December Overview! (Please review) This is a real blessing, so be ready to take advantage of the Good!

So lets take a look at how to work with this Full Moon energy!

  • Best practice is to look at how you can merge these two energies….information (Gemini) into wisdom (Sagittarius)
  • Sagittarius /Gemini polarity brings opportunity to expand our mind and look at a bigger picture!
  • This FM helps us see where faith has been lost, and helps us renew our Beliefs!
  • Intuitively, we seek to gain greater balance  by utilizing our innate wisdom!  (Love this!)
  • Communications of all kinds are significant at this time, so pay attention! A powerful insight or ahha  can change a belief in a flash!let it go
  • Intuition and imagination will be extra active so pay attention to messages and visions.
  • We  may see where we are holding back…..time to let that go!!!!

This is the last full moon of the year, and an opportunity to RELEASE all the useless information we have collected this year, and  hone in on the WISDOM we acquired thru trial and error!

 

 

2017 is a 1 Year….the Year of the Magician! Let’s go in with a clean slate and create some Magic!!!!

Take a few minutes to prepare for your  Full Moon release ceremony by  making a list of all you want to let go of.butterfly let go

                  Write it all down! We don’t want to bring any old baggage, information, or beliefs  into 2017.

Here is a beautiful grid to work with this FM. Since the axis is Gemini(information) Sagittarius ( Wisdom/Beliefs),

I did it a bit differently, using just the special crystals that work to integrate these 2 energy’s.  These gorgeous crystals are from the AURA SHOP on Main St.

gemini-full-moon-grid

 

Labradorite is the Spiritual Mentor Crystal (for Sag energy) and Kyanite ( for Gemini) helps to bring the truth to you through logical thought and intuition! Apophylite at the top links Spiritual and Physical, and, of course Moon Stone at the bottom, enhances intuition and adjusts your biorhythms during the Full Moon! ( Always have your Moon stone for any moon ceremony!)

Kyanite is the Blue Stone and Labradorite is the  multi faceted olive gold stone! Actually…the grid is created on a Labradorite slab! Awesome and from the AURA SHOP!~  Print and use this or create your own!

Take your list of Releases and your crystals to your special place OUTSIDE, if possible, and vibe with the Moonlight!

full moon and lakeSpend a few minutes in Silence, under the beautiful rays of Moonlight.

Then read your release list ….OUT LOUD….to the Moonlight.

When complete….light it up and watch it burn….all of it!

Jot down any insights or ideas that come to you that are NEW.

 

When complete…Give great thanks for all you DO have….and relax…..

Time to get ready for a brand New Year and YOU!!!prayer big girl

Note …Mercury goes retrograde Dec 18th – Jan. 8th. If you are traveling over this holiday  make sure you check and recheck your plans. There may be delays and chaos with this aspect.  Best Practice, Stay Grounded, Centered, Flexible, and plan extra time! Really get all your shopping and shipping done this week. You want your cards and gifts to arrive in time and at the correct address!!! You will want to slow down by the 19th….(Mars into Pisces) so really, trust me, get it all done, or as much as you can….this week!!!

 

SeedsofFaith_WebDuring  this Holiday Season…Remember the Real Reason we Celebrate…it is about Giving the Gift of  Love, Gratitude  and Appreciation from your Heart to the Heart of your Family and Friends! Since it is a retrograde Holiday, reconnect with friends and family, and reconsider your 2017 directions. There is exciting Cosmic energy guiding us at end of this month and year!

Get ready to start fresh and expand your beliefs and views and expect the unexpected!!

Full Moon Nov 14 in Taurus/Scorpio

November 14th @9:23 AM PST

wolf howling at full moon57Full Moons always illuminate that which is hidden. It offers us to see things in a New Light!  This Full Moon is the the 3rd of 4 Super Full Moons. We  feel the pull of the Moon in normal times, but  when it is  a Super Full Moon…coming  close to Earth, the gravitational pull is amplified!  So… Heads Up…. this is one of the most emotional and intense Full Moon energies of the year!  It  involves bringing up deep issues that reside in our unconscious or shadow side. shawdow side The Taurus/Scorpio axis  rules  issues of self worth, self esteem, and what we value. Finances and resources  also come under the spotlight…as does our sex life!

There are several aspects with this Full Moon that  indicate there are things going on below the surface that once identified,will require you to make some adjustments before they can be resolved, balanced, and  restored.

Areas where  adjustments may need to occur:

*Your relationship with abundance ( or lack)

*Your relationship with your body and how you take care of it

*Your relationship with sex….shawdow tango

*Power…use, misuse, and abuse of it!

*Discovering what matters most to you at this stage of your life.

Questions to consider during these intense few days…Are you in denial about something that needs to emerge?

Are you tending to and doing what you really really care about…or do you put if off until you have the time/energy/money/etc?

Are you utilizing the resources you have available to you?

Scorpio energy  gets down and dirty… to find the truth.. no matter how painful…and transform it!

There is a great quote from Angeles Arrien in the Mountain Astrologer this month that I love….

“There comes a time in the Spiritual Journey when you start making choices from a very different place. And, if a choice lines up so that it supports truth, health ,happiness, wisdom, and love, it is the right choice! ”

So, once you find YOUR truth….make your choices from a higher perspective!

These choices and decisions will empower us all!

 We are not having a full moon gathering! To cold and too dark! So, I highly suggest you do your own!                Here are a few suggestions for a DIY  Full Moon Release ceremony:

 

The best crystal is still Malachite for the Scorpio Sun, and rutilated quartz for the Taurus moon.( It will help you access your past,and what you is ready to be released at this time!)

Here is your beautiful Full Moon  crystal grid to use or follow…

full-moon-in-scorpio

* Full moons are not  as time sensitive as New Moons, so plan to go out and feel and experience this very powerful, Super Full Moon. Receive the downloads, upgrades and assistance she is sending to you!
* Bring a journal and take a few moment to contemplate and meditate. Ask for guidance!

* Write down all the things that  are no longer working for you. List everything. The Intention is to expose hidden secrets and ” just let go”  so you can move forward without a bunch of  emotional baggage!

*Then, take your list.…Bless It for what worked and the lessons learned.  Next, light it up and let her burn baby burn! All the way….no chunks of paper left!

*Once burned…..Shout… Dance… Howl…. get excited that these things will no longer have power over you!

 Bye Bye Now to the past shitola!!let it go!

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing….do it FULL OUT!

Put your Heart and Soul into it!

And….on a another note…. The  US elections will be over…finally!  Who ever wins, it is truly a time to release this ridicules campaign and all the separation it has created.  Do an extra howl or written release,  let’s” let go” of the crazy hate, bigotry, lies and name calling. I know we will all  have to dig deep to release….

but it is really time to move forward!

Time to the page, work together, and UNITE our beautiful country!

And, please send love to our New Leader…whoever it is will need it!

Stay

Inspired…Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings

Full Moon in Aries/Libra October 15th

full moon jump Super Moon in Aries/Libra

October 15th

9:23 PM PDT

23 * Aries

Full Moons are about bringing to light that which is hidden or unseen to release or become aware of!       It is a time when we are trying to gain balance! This Full Moon is power pack, as it is a SUPER Full Moon….( in very close orb to the earth) so emotions will be running  high!  Plus, there are 2 dicey aspects taking place at the time of this Full Moon that are rather potent!

First….Aries/Libra is the Relationship access.Thoughts around “how do I balance my personal freedom, and still manage a loving supportive relationship?”

The themes of Me vs my Partners, Fairness, Balance, Mutual Empowerment,Giving and Receiving will worldloveemerge! Since this Full Moon is kissing(conjunct Uranus….we must expect the unexpected! It will be quite important to plan extra time, slow down, ground yourself, and to pause before responding when someone pushes your buttons! Even though you might be ready to explode, just walk away until you have time to process! Re-approach when you are in a relaxed, calm frame of mind! As a note, this aspect of Uranus conjunct the Full Moon is a trigger point to the Pluto /Uranus square of 2012-2015. Notice if re-occurring issues arise…..ones that you thought were handled. Instead of getting mad…..use it as a HMMMMMM....I guess more work/ negotiation is required on this subject!

family steinfeildThe the other strong aspect occurring is Mars conjunct Pluto! This energy can and will bring up conflict and discord! Please remember,conflicts (differences of opinions)  will  need to be negotiated and resolved! Not  a shouting match or physical fight!!!!!

If this does not come up for you personally…..then be a good friend and step in if need be.

We all need to watch the words we speak, and the thoughts we think! Remember, until you walk a mile in someone else shoes, you do not know what is driving them!!! Love and compassion are  the order of the day!

Conflict is rampant in our world….our country. This Full Moon calls for all of us to work out PEACEFUL,let it go WIN WIN solutions to differences of opinions and beliefs. Lets  PRACTICE conflict resolution and LISTEN, really LISTEN to what our partner/colleague is saying!

I realize this may sound heavy…..my intention is to INFORM you of the energies and give you solutions to work with it for the highest resolve!!!!

Full moons are not as time sensitive as New Moons, so go out on Saturday evening, take a few minutes to sit, take in the moon light, it will be gorgeous as it is a Super Moon very close to us, full of messages, codes, and downloads!

Set your intentions to get clarity and make your time special!

Have your note book and reflect on your relationships! Write down what is working,  where there is fullmoonin purpleconflict, and if so, what you can do differently, how  can approach in a more BALANCED way to resolve?

Also review the changes that occurred between 2012 and 2015…is something reoccurring, not quit right yet? If so, re-calibrate, change course, tweak it!

Write it all down under the power of this magnificent moon. Have your partner join you…..Talk with each other from the HEART….LISTEN from the HEART. Work out a WIN WIN if you are choosing to stay together….or if  irreconcilable, how to part amicably, both empowered.

When you are complete…. let out a big ole HOWL, send gratitude and blessings back up to the beautiful Moon, and know  the clarity and insight you received is the right course for you!

The best crystals to use  are your beautiful Rose Quartz for love and Kyanite for clalrity  and balance and onyx or black tourmaline for grounding!

Here is the grid I created for us!

aires-moon-grid

So…..remember….Best Practice…..Pause…and create Win Win, Love and Balance!!!

Inspired….Connected…..Empowered

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Sept 16th in Pisces!

full moon with canueIt has been a very power packed 16 days between the New Moon Solar Eclipse on Sept 1st, and this Full Moon Lunar Eclipse! These eclipses, along with several additional  aspects, are having a profound effect on our Soul’s journey! Eclipses propel us to take big steps! The portal that opens re-configures and re-calibrates our coding! We are stepping into a new direction, one that balances our heart and head, the divine feminine and masculine, duality and unity, love not fear! The Pisces Virgo axis is a blending of Spiritual Vision, and Virgo Doing, balancing the two! Time to release the past disappointments, and stand open and ready to move with strength, grace  and courage toward new ideas and visions!spiritual warrior

Full Moons bring to light that which has been hidden from view. Time to light it up and release the fear, suffering, pain, and past! It is over….really over!

I just can’t say enough about the Power of this Full Moon Eclipse. Jupiter, the planet of blessings and expansion, has just shifted into Libra, and remains near the Super Galactic Center (SGC) located at 2 degrees Libra, magnifying an immense concentration of stellar intelligence streaming from trillions of suns! “The SGC is a colossal Black Hole around which our Milky Way and many other galaxies revolve. Electromagnetic energy from the SGC acts as a spiritual beacon, triggering a deep cellular remembrance of our cosmic origins,  impelling us to embody the destiny encoded in our birth charts! ” Stephanie Austin

This Full moon Lunar Eclipse illuminates our next step and shows us: it is not what you have on the outside that glitters in the light, it’s what you have on the inside that shines in the dark” Anthony Liccione

Amazing….yes? So, please take the time to go out and soak in the energy and vibrations from this very special moment in time.

You can create your own personal ceremony, ( I will be out of town on retreat) However, here are a few suggestions to get the most out of this energy.

Plan your ceremony Thursday evening with the Moonlight shinning!fm mothers

 

Always make your time special,sacred and intentional!

Center, ground your self,(aums are very effective,  as are a few deep breaths) The point is to come fully  present in you body,and spend time in the silence, just BEING with this wonderful, magnificent Moonlight!

You can use crystals, candles, essential oils, or just take yourself outdoors and do moon gazing!

 

I have created an amazing grid.Crystals are from the AURASHOP on Main St if you need to pick up a few.

fmle
                         Full Moon Lunar Eclipse Grid

The crystals  recommend are Amethyst, the Pisces Stone, perfect for connecting you to your Spirit Guides and Galactic friends, green amethyst or Peridot for Virgo service, Citrine for abundance, Rose quartz for love, Labradorite as your Spiritual mentor, Kyananite for balance, Moonstone to create a little magic, Rainbow hemitite to assist you in re-awakening your passion keeping you grounded, red jasper to nurture and protect, and a piece of Bismouth for a Shaman Journey and astral travel,( yippee) and at the top, one of my favorites,  a Lemurian quartz, for returning to the Soul!!!

Please feel free to copy this for yourself, and use any crystals you feel drawn to use!

Most importantly…..just be out in the Light of the Moon…..you will get upgraded and coded with magic!

Happy Full Moon Eclipse…..And don’t forget to howl!!
