Full Moon Lunar Eclipse April 4th in Libra

full moon eclipse blookWe have a beautiful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse early Saturday morning, 5:05  AM PDT! If you are an  early riser,  you will be able to see it!  It will be quick, beautiful, and  blood red in color! Early morning is such  a special time of day, so well worth your effort if you make it up!

Lunar Eclipses are extra potent Full Moons, signaling a fork in the road, a change, a releasing and letting go and an ending of some kind! This full moon eclipse  is in Libra, so balance in relationship, fairness, and justice,  are the themes that will be illuminated! And, more than likely, the issue will tie into last months Pluto Uranus final  square and the  March 20th Solar Eclipse.

Please note that everyone will be extra sensitive and emotional a few days prior and after, so be sure tolet it go! practice patience and compassion. We have all gone thru tremendous change……and now we are beginning a new journey….but the first stop is to RELEASE all the extra baggage…..including, but not limited too old love relationship, partnerships, friendships, and situations that are  not fair and just.

We will not be doing a  horseback ride this full moon, I fell and sprained my foot….no riding for me 🙁

But please do your own release ceremony. It is important to put to bed that person, place or thing that no longer serves you! A Full Moon release is a bit different than a New Moon ceremony, as it is not time sensitive. You can do your release on Friday  or Saturday evening if you are not up at 5 AM Saturday morning. The most important element here is to write down what no longer serves you….what you have outgrown, people and relationships that  are  no longer on your  wave link. This is the fork in the road of new directions. Choose the high road!Adventure time!endings begings

Write your List, include everything! Then do a ceremonious  Release! It’s great if you can burn it, but if not, rip it apart with glee and joy! Get Happy….sing the song….it does make you happy, which is the whole point.!!!!!happy williamsjpg

Then, howl,  moon-gaze, and simply give thanks and gratitude for the many  lessons learned…… Remember

Stay Inspired….Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings,

New Moon Solar Eclipse October 23rd

scorpio image sign

Powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse!

Thursday at 2:57 PM PDT!

O degrees Scorpio

New Moons are always about starting anew in some part of our lives. And,when it is a New Moon Solar Eclipse, it is super charged, and marks the beginning of a New Life Cycle!

 

Take a moment to think back 19 years ago… (October 25th 1995). This was the last time the New Moon Eclipse occurred at O Scorpio. What was occurring in your life at that time? Where are you being called to go to the next level? We just experienced a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Oct 8th. That Full Moon asked us to  let go and end those relationships and situations that no longer support us. Many situations ended….for good!

Now is the time to start down a New Path. One that lights you up and has been seeking to emerge!yellow-brick-road-6 One that you feel Passionate about!  Know it is time to wipe the slate clean and step outside your comfort zone!

Here are a few questions to ponder prior to Thursday.

What’s next for me?

What is my Heart’s desire?

What do a feel passionate about?

What is going to require courage and faith to embark?

How can I use my gifts and talents to empower, teach, and positively effect our changing planet?

cosmic-breath-of-life

The Balsamic moon, (the 3 days prior to  the New Moon) is the perfect time  to ASK for and Receive information and clues. Stay present and grounded. Pay attention to the signs and info you are presented with. It is Guiding you in some way. Just by Being present, awake and aware, you will accelerate your understanding and messages!

 

 

And, Remember (how could we forget} Mercury is still Retrograde thru Oct. 25th   Continue to re-view, re-think, re-new and re-energize your new direction!

The time to take action and sort out details will be next week! Go for the Big Vision and Passion in your Heart!

We are entering into the very intense energy of Scorpio,  with the Sun, Moon, Venus, Saturn and Mercury to follow early next  month.  All This  Energy energy will be potent,  powerful, transformational, and with us most of scorpio image 2November.

Here are a few pointers for working with this powerful Scorpio energy…..

This is the energy  of Intensity, Passion and Transformation. It  asks us to step into the unknown and release what we have outgrown—a job, a relationship; a way of seeing ourselves and the world…..whatever has become stifling to our soul. In Scorpio, we learn that there is no death, only transformation. We also eventually realize that letting go is not inherently painful: it‘s the holding on that causes suffering! What is dead in your life? What is ready to be born? This New Moon asks us to root out what is deceitful and detrimental, releasing old habits that no longer reflect our current needs and desires. Scorpio is the sign most concerned with passion and power, temptation and transformation. This is the perfect time to confront what has been hidden or denied, and transform any of our destructive desires and unbalanced ways of relating to others.

beuatiful butterflyjpgAnd, remember, Eclipses are The Universe’s way of putting our  life back on course! Transformation is in the air!

Whatever happens…rethink and review, and take the steps to begin anew (next week)!

The time right before the new moon is the most mystical and magical.  Cosmic guidance is easily available. You only need to slow down and ask IN for guidance! We live in a benevolent universe. Our answers will guide us in our new beginnings and direction! And we have Venus, the goddess of Love,  Money, and Grace, kissing this New Moon Eclipse, so the Divine Feminine will  strongly influence us!

                          This is an exciting time! We are creating something new and wonderful!creative brain

And there will be people, places and things we will have to leave behind!

Ultimately it is for the better!

August Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo

Greetings,

Full Moon in Aquarius/Leo Exact at 11:09 AM PDTfull moon tides August 10th

We are set this month to Begin our Hero’s Journey, knowing we will be  starting, pausing, making adjustments, and reconfiguring our plans along the way! The Full Moon in August will absolutely assist us. It is the set  up for the Special, Powerful Yod New Moon! ( see Cosmic Currents August for details)

Full moons allow for details that are hidden from view to be illuminated…..always in a good way. Remember, information is power,  and knowing what is not working,  as well as what  is, gives us a clear starting point!

This full moon is a catalyst for the Powerful  New Moon Yod on August 25th, so be sure to  LISTEN in and ASK for guidance. Full moons are  in power for 2 days ahead and 2 days after, so tune in to the MOONLIGHT channel and be awake and aware of all synchronicity and subtleties occurring. Intend for clarity to be revealed!

 

This is  one of the five Super Full Moon this year. The technical term is “At Peigee”,  meaning orbiting  closest to the Earth, so it will appear larger than usual, and its gravitational pull will be stronger…so note, EMOTIONS will also be super strong.

 

The Astro details…road less traveled

The moon  is in the Sign of Aquarius opposite  the Sun in Leo. We also have Mercury and Jupiter in the Sign of Leo.  Additionally, we have the in-conjunct between Saturn in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries. This is a very tight configuration,  all planets being between 16 and 18 degrees……meaning energy is intense!

So….lets break it down….

Sun and Mercury in Leo….living and speaking from the Heart,  Being our Unique Creative Self , shining our special light with open Hearted Love and Creativity!

Aquarius represents  the power of community and collaboration, along with our hopes and dreams for ourselves and our planet! Our work is to integrate these two energies so we have the best of both!

The Square to Saturn in Scorpio is about breaking down old structures, beliefs and fears that continue to hold our Light back, and putting in solid strong foundations.

The  Sextile of Uranus in Aries to the Sun and moon, and in-conjunct to Saturn in Scorpio is really about embarking on a New Yellow Brick road of our Life….one that is the Road Less Traveled, and the one that makes our heart sing!

Wizard-of-Oz-yellow-brick-road1

What we can pull  from this Full Moon is Strength, Courage,  Determination,Enthusiasm, and Confidence to slay the Dragons of our minds, blocks, and hurtles  and become the Hero in our own Hero’s Journey, a path of joy, purpose, and fulfillment!cat lion

For those of you who are Local, Please join me and  Amazing Healer Linda Lightfoot at Mothers Beach in Marina del Rey for a powerful ceremony that will illuminate what  to release, and your next step! We have all kinds of goodies  planed for the event, including riding the  Water Taxis around the Marina to howl, and play as we  conclude our ceremony! We do have limited space, so please rsvp asap to reserve your spot and I will send you all the details! Price is $22.00

 

Looking forward to Howling, Playing and Creating with you!wolf howling at full moon57

And the Journey Begins…..

Stay

New Moon in Cancer June 27th @ 1:08 AM PDT

Greetings Cosmic Artist!cancer

Cancer New Moon 6 degrees

June 27th @ 1:08 AM PDT

As we prepare for this New Moon ceremony in Cancer, it is a perfect time to reflect (Mercury is still in Retrograde) on all that has occurred in the first 6 months of the year. The Grand Cross has been relentless in presenting us with challenges, changes, and new directions, urging us forward! Starting July 1, Mercury goes direct. New ideas and pathways will become crystal clear and open up easily and quickly. Best practice is to take  time NOW to plant your intentions and desires in the fertile energy of this new moon.

You will surely be supported by the Cosmos!Psychedelic Sunset-1

The Highlight for this ceremony is on the qualities of Cancer. She is ruled by the moon, is a water feminine sign and her domain is our home, family, internal structures, root beliefs, safety, intimacy/caring, feelings/moods, and nurturing, both giving and receiving. This is the last few weeks of Jupiter transiting in Cancer, and this benevolent expansive energy will be close by to insure our intentions, desires, and work in these areas won’t go UN-noticed. As a side note, Jupiter won’t be back in Cancer for 12 years, so take advantage of these last few weeks and soak it up!

1_love_spiritual_quotes

This month has been about listening –IN. Healing happens when we listen deeply and respond from the Heart! We are here now to create a new way of BEING on our beautiful planet…one that is loving, nurturing, protecting, and powerfully aligned with family, friends, and our global community. This strong Cancer New Moon is asking us to BE in our HEARTS and move from that place in all ways.

As always, remember to do your ceremony at the exact time or AFTER. Not before. You can make your lists and prepare, but do it after!

New Moons occur every 29 1/2 days when the moon aligns with the sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of new beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating. New Moons are about starting anew. Be clear, set your intentions, see and feel them complete, and trust the universe to do the rest!

Soooo…on to our Ceremony Intentions…..candles

Home, Family, and Instincts.

Full Moon in Sagittarius June 12 @ 9:11 PM PDT

yogapose withmoonGreetings,

This full moon offers us a wonderful  opportunity for profound insight and healing. It occurs on June 12 @ 9:11 PM PDT   at 22 degrees of Sagittarius/Gemini  and is  aligned  with  several astrological combinations that will assist us in “illuminating” where we still need to make  shifts and changes in at least one area of life.

Gemini is the sign most concerned with the mind, cognition, and intelligence……how we perceive, process and share information.  Sagittarius deals with our interpretation of that information….our judgements, concepts, and beliefs around what is true, possible and real.merc

Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini, is in retrograde motion, asking us to re-view, re-think, re-align, and simply slow our thought process down.

Neptune, the planet that rules our Spiritually also just turned  retrograde,  reconnecting  us to our Inner guidance,  Inner direction,  and the Heartbeat of our Spiritual practice and understanding.

We also have Saturn, Venus, and Chiron in the mix, calling for a blending, healing, and releasing of our old values, beliefs, and processes that no longer work.

full moon cat and dog

 

This year to date  has been a  highly charged, changing dynamic for us all! This full moon is about gently surrendering  and simply  releasing….just letting IT go….what ever IT is that’s not working,  and gratefully embracing  new insights and healing vibrations we receive during this  powerful lunation!

 

 

Adopt at lease one new idea and belief….an insight you receive….. Make it your own!

change98201_448973581852345_996570224_n

A wonderful quote from Marianne Williamson to assist us under this full moon….. “Nothing binds you except your thoughts; nothing limits you except your fear; and nothing holds you back except your beliefs. ”

Carp Diem!

 

Stay Inspired….Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings
