Taking Action and Finding Clarity in the Lunar Shift

scorpio-new-moon
Last week’s Scorpio New Moon signals a time to make a commitment.

My key phrase for this week is: Commitment

This week activates the promise of last week’s November 7th Scorpio new moon. Moving into the first quarter moon, you are being asked to take action.

In the 28 day lunation cycle, which is the time it takes to go from one new moon to the next, the first quarter moon urges you to take action; and to do that, you must make a commitment.

Many times people feel that they must make the ‘right’ decision, but consider that sometimes it’s necessary to just make a decision and see it through.

This may be the case now. If you must take action, this week opens a portal that allows you to do your duty. You must be firm though. That’s because two major celestial events happened on Friday, November 16th: Venus stationed direct and Mercury went retrograde.

Granted, this can cause confusion and even more delay. That’s why, if you must take action this week, do it ASAP. By Saturday, you may be feeling confused again.

Finding Quiet Clarity

Confusion that prevents you from committing will be an issue, and it’s vitally important that you find your way to clarity. There are many techniques to quiet your mind and then connect with the wisdom of your body.

Jupiter is now in Sagittarius, the sign where he is extra powerful. Much larger than the earth, Jupiter has 63 moons! Wouldn’t it be fun to go there and see so many moons in the sky?  You can think of Jupiter as a great, big old gas giant with lots of minions, as expressed by the Moons, to do his bidding.

Learning to ask for and accept help will be one of our lessons here on earth as Jupiter moves through Sagittarius until December of 2019. Moons are helpers, people who have come to serve and help you shine your Light.

There are many stressors in all parts of life now, but especially in a time of trauma, it’s important to return to your core values. What do you really believe? Do you see the cup as half full, or half empty? Who do you want to be? What do you want to accomplish?

Think about these questions this week, as you focus on commitment.

The stars will guide your way.

Scorpio New Moon: Coming Back to Your Body

new moon scorpio
This Scorpio New Moon is a time to come back to your body.

As we approach the Scorpio New Moon my key phrase for this week is: Welcome Home

Today, November 6,  is a pivotal day for the world, and tomorrow, November 7th, is a vital day in astrology. On Wednesday, the Sun and Moon join forces in the exact middle at 15 degrees of Scorpio.

This degree of Scorpio holds a special place in the history of sky watching. The 15th degree of Scorpio is known as the Gate of the Avatar. Taken from an ancient Hindu term related to the word ‘descent’, an Avatar is an enlightened Teacher who enters, or descends to the earth plane. The Avatar is an embodiment of a prime, creative Universal force.

Entering the vortex

And the Avatar Gate is a vortex, a point of entry where enlightened service manifests. 

These days we all are waking up to fulfill our unique divine purpose. The Avatar Gate serves not only spiritual Masters. It is a manifestation point for YOU and your spiritual work and mission.  

In short, the Scorpio new moon signals that it’s time to inhabit your body in the most full and creative way possible. It’s time to come home and do your work in the world.

The Book of Scorpio

Scorpio gives birth to irrevocable change and teaches us that:

  • Forces can change but not destroy you
  • Negativity is a self-destructive path
  • The desire to share overcomes the fear of loss
  • Passion is a driving emotion
  • Intuition is a form of body wisdom

And, the most important lesson of all: 

LOVE is more powerful than HATE

We have been stressed and under pressure all year. Just like when a baby is born, their cries can persist until the point you feel you cannot go on. In other words, you may feel absolute discomfort and at the same time a promise of fulfillment. What is coming will be a better version of what is left behind.

So, this week’s powerful new moon is one that speaks to rebirth and just like a little baby we can see the world with bright and fresh eyes.

Welcome Home, child.

Libra New Moon

Goddess Maat moves you from chaos to certainty

My key phrase for this week is: Peace of Mind

Today, October 8th ushers in the Libra New Moon. Libra is the sign of relationships, but it’s also the sign of justice.

The glyph or symbol for Libra is a set of scales. Connected through ancient teachings to the Goddess Maat, the scales of Libra are there to weigh the burdens of your heart.

Ancient Egyptians taught us that Goddess Maat brought order from chaos at the moment of creation. She regulates the stars and the seasons, and that she calibrates your actions.

As you tune into this Libra new moon energy this week, remember the goddess Maat and consider that it’s time release your mental burdens.

The challenge of Libra is to make a solid commitment – no halfway steps. So, you must really, really let go of resentment and anger. And, take a look at the role that doubt plays in your life.

Doubt implies the dread of uncertainty, and being of two minds. Being unable to make a decision is also symbolized by the scales of Libra. Should I stay or should I go? Which is the best way forward?

The answer is: You must take action and overcome the fear of making mistakes. Mistakes are one way that we all grow, and the paralysis of two minds is a veil over the Light of God.

Spiritual truth is beyond human logic, and you must simply jump in and run a good race. Your mind can get to the starting gate, but you cannot allow your thoughts to keep you spinning in circles, frozen in time and space.

There are many layers and levels of mind. To function in the world, we must connect with logic, which is a layer of the conscious mind. But you also have a subconscious mind which rules habits and life functions that keep you safe.

Unfortunately, the subconscious mind can also keep you stuck.

And, you also have a Higher Mind, a part of yourself that connects to wisdom. Through meditation and/or calming your logical mind, you can always connect with your Higher Mind for guidance to navigate any situation.

Libra is an air sign, and it corresponds to your mental processes. In this season of Libra, learn to understand your mind. Practice positive thinking, create beneficial habits, and release you mental burdens.

Wishing you joy and peace for this Libra new moon.

Are you ready for 2019!! Schedule your update reading HERE.

Venus Retrograde & Your Deep Dive

Venus is retrograde in Scorpio from October 5th – November 15.

My key words for this week are: Deep Dive

The big news for this week is that Venus will be retrograde from Friday, October 5th until November 16th. All planets except for the Sun and the Moon go retrograde- and, as you probably know by now, the planet does not actually begin to go backwards; rather it appears to be that way from the earth.

The retrograde cycle for any planet is a time to revisit, review, refine, and reconnect. In the language of karmic astrology, retrograde time periods are also when we dig into our past lifetime patterns and correct mistakes.

Each planet is a teacher, and to understand the cosmic message, you have to think about what the planet has for us to learn. The Venus retrograde mission for your soul is to move past resentment and reveal a fresh new start.

The core lesson of Venus is ‘VALUE’ – these are the things we hold dear such as relationship and money, stability, connection, and flow. And, the message for Venus retrograde in Scorpio is to uncover our own discontent and learn to love the parts of yourself that we have either buried or cast aside. In short, it’s a time to declare your love of self. Such a powerful mission!

Self-Love is an inside job done day by day and minute by minute. You heal your past failures, confront the times when you were rejected, and claim personal love. When this pain is healed you are able to connect with the world in a Scorpio / 8th house fashion where you own your power and express your creativity.

But, as taught by the ancients through the journey of Inanna, the meat of Venus retrograde is that of going into the Underworld. Venus is about beauty, but like the Lotus blossom, even the goddess must dig into the mud where she gets nourishment to feed her beautiful flower.

The Truth Shall Set You Free

In addition to the big picture of Venus retrograde, on Tuesday, Mercury square Pluto adds a sense of urgency to your mission. Mercury and Pluto, ironically the first and last planets in the traditional line up of the Solar System, are good bedfellows – they understand each other.

If you need to have an important conversation, Tuesday afternoon or evening is the time to do it because Mercury square Pluto engenders discussion that reveals hidden psychological issues, and this can transform your life.

Mars is still standing guard in Aquarius until mid-November. Mars in Aquarius is your time to stand firm and reveal your humanitarian mission.

In Aquarius, Mars also gives permission to march to the beat of your own drummer – it’s time to let your freak flag fly. Move past what other people think – this includes judgmental family members, ex-spouses, and old friends that need to be left behind.

Plus, Jupiter is now rapidly moving through the last degrees of Scorpio. Jupiter remains in Scorpio until November 7th, and there are still many pearls and underwater treasures to be harvested; so keep up the good work.

Use this rich time in October to Dive Deep, go into your heart, heal you soul, claim what you truly value, and fully live your Truth.

Wishing you many blessings as you reach for the Stars.

It’s already time to look into 2019!! Schedule your update reading HERE.
