Connect to the Muse | New Moon in Pisces 15 degrees

Connect to the Muse and embrace the spiritual cleanse! We have reached the end of the zodiacal year and must prepare to be reborn. But first! We have an opportunity to commune with the Muse in Pisces.

Pisces rules meditation, relaxation, dreams, and forgotten traumas. With the New Moon in Pisces, we must use this time to slow down and reconnect to ourselves as spiritual beings instead of someone who has a job, a role, or title. We must come back to ourselves and see the bigger picture.  We might have used these titles, roles, or jobs to survive pain or trauma and in Pisces it is made clear. Pisces rules illusions and delusion and without the light of the moon, we must look within to see where we might have deceived ourselves about the reality of things.

Meaning of Moon phase
The New Moon signifies a time to withdraw from the outside world and look within for answers. While in the pursuit of following our dreams, reviewing our mental constructs, and involving others in the past week, we come to a halt and confront a different perspective of ourselves. This pause from the usual allows change to take its course with least resistance and a seed to be planted. This seed signifies a start of a new cycle, especially since Neptune, the dissolver of boundaries and the ruler of Pisces, is involved with this new moon.

Aspects

Moon sextile Saturn 18 degrees in Capricorn
Moon sextile Saturn in Capricorn gives a healthy dose of reality. We see that a part of our lives are coming to its end and we must prepare ground for the future.

Saturn, the part of our mind that takes things seriously, doesn’t let responsibility dissolve in the hands of Neptune because there’s things to accomplish and an empire to build.

So we must see the events in our lives as they are and recognize that a phase is coming its end. We must use the sickle that is Saturn’s tool to cut old connections to the past and prepare for the new to arrive. Saturn, being the great teacher, will then show with time where to dig deep and plant new meaning and goals in our lives. With this harmonious aspect, this opportunity must be worked for since it will not be given so easily. Through meditation, prayer, and contemplation, the steps of how to prepare will be revelaved so that the seed of our wildest dreams will be planted on fertile ground.

Moon sextile Mars 13 degrees in Taurus
Moon sextile Mars in Taurus reflects that once we dig deep and plant the seed, we’ll see how our enthusiasm can nurture the idea until it is strong and able to survive on its own. Mars is the planet that symbolizes where we must focus our energy, and with Mars in Taurus, it shows that it’ll be fruitful to focus energy towards what gives sustenance to the Soul and validates our material/spiritual values.

Moon conjunct Neptune
Moon conjunct Neptune in Pisces shows that all the feelings and emotions are out and roams freely. If the space is created it will flow and make sense of itself after entertaining every tender thought. Perhaps drawing a bit to or listen to inspiring music or poetry will ease the process and let the creative juices flow.  

Once this is accomplish the dissolving of old boundaries can take place and guide us to new visions of what’s to come.

But if ignored, the daydreams that projects itself to the external world can fog our presepective and let disappointment and depression settle in. So resort back to Saturn and be serious about creating quiet space to avoid being dragged by emotions.

Aries Moon in the 8th house

The Moon in your chart shows how your mother nurtured you, what is needed to feel emotionally satisfied, and how you go about fulfilling those needs. In esoteric astrology, it is said that the soul is trapped in the sign the moon is in. Meaning you have tendencies to express the lower qualities of the sign when reacting to a situation. There’s a tendency to use manipulation to attain emotional satisfaction instead of being honest about emotional needs. The Moon also reveal where there are insecurities, therefore retreat into vices; food, people, emotions, status, or things.

Despite the fact that it is where the soul hides, it is also where the greatest strength can be found. By looking to the Moon placement, there’s a hint of how to address internal needs and integrate with “darker” or unseen parts of the self. By nourishing your emotional needs daily, you are able to nourish those around you the same by providing intimacy, acceptance and nonverbal care.

The Daily Struggle
If you have Aries Moon in the eighth house, you are all about death and rebirth. Anything to do with dark/ taboo things, your mind directly goes to it to understand the truth. In relationships, there’s a  subconscious need for independence but a lack of ability to maintain a sense of self. With this push and pull ambivalence, it increases frustration and anger due to powerlessness in relationships. Yet, a need to make an impact and to merge with someone or something greater drives you to change.

Due to the need to face the truth head-on, you tend to dabble in occult knowledge, magickal arts, psychology, or any topic that is misunderstood or taboo in your culture. You’ll find that your mind soaks the knowledge easily and strategizes ways to put it into action immediately. It is likely that you would want to have another to merge ideas with to create something new and exciting. Once this is “won” you would want to protect the knowledge from those who could misuse it.

Connection to Mother
With having your Moon in the eighth house, relationship with your mother was a power struggle. At some points, she would win with manipulation and deceit which triggered you to find reasons for her actions. In return, you would do the same to her and the cycle continues. In the end, this created distrust and resentment and a need for transformation to heal the relationship. Though this is the dynamic of you and your mother, it sets the stage of how you nurture yourself through relationships by finding ways to recreate this type of dynamic.

But with the Moon in Aries, there’s a deep outcry to be an individual who expresses their authentic self without fear of manipulation. You have tremendous potential locked away in the mind which could be of use to break away from this energetic hold.

Emotional Needs  
Aries is all about individuality and pursuing ideas but while in the eighth house, that is originally ruled by Scorpio, it would have you pursue those ideas with another in mind and accept standing circumstances.  The eighth house signifies an area in your life where you will have obstacles to reflect on. This natural tension makes it a challenge to maintain a healthy relationship with the other and the Self simultaneously.

With having such a strong Aries placement in the eighth house, the great mental chase will eventually evolve to possession, control, and eventually release of resources and/or loved one. This cycle will help you learn how to dance with your instinct to see where your power truly lies. Once deeply understood you are able to join a loved one with their ideas and resources in true harmony.

How to integrate change without disruption
With Aries Moon, you are here to learn how to not suppress your need for independence and intimacy. By acknowledging your need for independence and togetherness, you are able to state clear boundaries and feel satisfied when engaging with another. There’s an ambivalence that runs deep within you because of what you have learned from your mother. You might feel if you give your all, you’ll lose yourself and risk the chance to be “destroyed”. However, with a balanced mind and honesty about what triggers you, you are able to keep a healthy, intimate relationship with another.

How to nourish others – On the path with Mercury
With the Moon in the eighth house, you are sensitive to other people’s feelings of frustration, jealousy, and pain. When on the path of serving others Mercury rules you and the sensitives can be seen as a gift. With your intellect, you learn how to navigate dark emotions and help other’s see a way out of their dark situation systematically. You give the passion and hope that is needed to see their way through and breakdown psychological barriers. With this gift, you hold the light for those that are in the dark and inspire them to start over again.

Based on your Mercury placement in the natal chart, you are able to gain more insight into how you are able to do so.

Be a Friend to Yourself | New Moon 15 degrees in Aquarius

A new emotional cycle begins in the sign of Aquarius! The Moon in Aquarius prompts us to retreat from external observations to internal. We must look within to find what it means to be a true friend to ourselves and hold that space.

How we relate to others gives insight into how we relate to ourselves.

But what does that mean?

I will go into that based on your rising sign below. But first, let’s understand New Moon in Aquarius a little more…

Meaning of the Moon phase

With the New Moon in Aquarius, come clean and know what you stand for and why it makes you different from others. It’s important to see where you begin and end within the whole to gain a greater understanding of who you are. What you have to offer is of value, but only if you understand what it is that you are offering. So dig deep and understand how you can befriend yourself and listen in on what makes you different.

The Aspects
The sextile the Moon makes to Jupiter 15 degrees in Sagittarius, gives a joyful feeling to this internal process due to a sense of direction. However, you’ll have to give a little effort to make this happen. So feel excited about your future and take the chance for growth when it presents itself.

With the Moon conjunct Mercury, you can expect mental chatter or communications that will trigger the spark for change.  

Ruler of the sign
The rulers of Aquarius are Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (modern). Saturn 15 degrees in Capricorn (his own sign) gives a need to understand how to be your own authority. Since Saturn is a slow-moving planet, this feeling has been building upon itself for the past few months and will continue to do so during this Lunar transit. Uranus being the other ruler of Aquarius 28 degrees in Aries, is wrapping up lessons on how to be independent (hopefully) in a healthy manner. Uranus can be a bit sporadic but always keep in mind that it is for the evolution for the Soul.  

How this moon relates to the past moon phase

Leo speaks to the part of us that need love and appreciation for being ourselves. It speaks to the need to be seen and for innocent play. In the past couple of years with the alternation of Aquarius/ Leo solar/lunar eclipses, we had to learn how to be of service to ourselves and others. By playing, creating, and having TRUE fun we fulfill the Leo part in our charts, thus, able to be of service to our chosen community (Aquarius).

Think back in the past two years and reflect on how it has shaped you to this point.

The​ ​Aspects
While the Moon is in Leo it will oppose Mercury 25 degrees in Capricorn, square Uranus 28 degrees in Aries, and conjunct the North Node 26 degrees in Cancer (Eclipse).

Meaning
Moon being the mind and Mercury being the intellect, there’s a struggle between what society says is right and what you feel is right. This could create an imbalance in the mind and give a sense of uncertainty and need for security. But, with the Moon square Uranus, there’s a need to rebel with a cause. This absolute need for freedom will help give the experience you need to feel like you are embracing who you are and continuing to develop your Soul’s intentions ( Moon conjunct North Node). As the Moon eclipsed, review how you owned your right to be an authority of your life. Review your skills and talents and work to develop them so they are part of your foundation.

Ruler​ ​of​ ​the​ ​sign​ ​aspects
The Ruler of Leo, the Sun barely made its way into forward-thinking, Aquarius. Aquarius is all about being the server of society. This energy understands the value of society and individuality. It believes that all ideas are welcomed and valued, especially when used appropriately to progress society. With the Sun in this sign conjunct Mercury 25 degrees in Capricorn, there’s a serious tone to the Eclipse in Leo. It touches on the need to communicate and be aware of how forward-thinking you are with gifts and talents. Think of ways of how you can be of service to others with your talents. Perhaps include your employer or those who are of authority in on the conversation too.

With the Sun conjunct Pluto, expect psychological transformation. Pluto requires death for rebirth and anything you’ve been holding on to mentally is ready to release. Once this takes place, merge with a part of you that wants greater things and live out those desires.

While Pluto is doing its work, The Sun will square Uranus in Aries. It is possible that you’ll have the unwillingness to compromise with anything less than ideal. Using this aspect in good light is beneficial as you pave the way to the Capricorn-Cancer eclipse cycle that’s to come.

How​ ​this​ ​moon​ ​relates​ ​to​ ​the​ ​past​ ​moon​ ​phase
When the Moon was New in Capricorn there was a need to be introspective and see that you are in charge of your emotions. >> You are in Charge | New Moon – Solar Eclipse in Capricorn << Now that the Moon is eclipse in Leo, you must use your gifts, talents, and joy for support.

Move forward with Joy!

What’s​ ​to​ ​come?
As the Leo- Aquarius cycle wraps up lessons, we will be moving on to the Capricorn-Cancer eclipse cycle. Expect transformation with how you take authority and how you relate to yourself emotionally. The next year will help us be more serious with our gifts and force us to be structured and responsible. But don’t let this discourage you. This is to help you feel secure and able to provide physical security for you and your family.

Emotional Independence from the Material | Moon in Aries in the Second house

If you have Moon in Aries in the second house material gains and achieving sensual urges comfort you. Your motto is to “to have” and you go after things/people with great force and attention. With the energy of Aries, you are creative in your pursuit to meet desires and please emotions.

You are able to create opportunities for yourself to get the next big thing. Starting at a young age, liquid assets are bound to fluctuate and what you’ve learned from the mother can be the culprit. You deeply felt your mother’s financial and material insecurities. She was unable to fulfill her financial desires, thus you internalized this as a child. Your mother’s story about money and material gains replay in your head as if they were your own. So, you take action to gain what you need and want. This is in the forefront of your daily life. The deep fear of not getting what you need pushes impulsivity. When frustrated, you can fall victim to spending large lump sums of money on food and home items. As you mature, you will reach financial/material goals and continue to make new ones. This will continue the fluctuation of assets, yet in a stable, conscious manner.

You feel most secure when you can take the lead of acquiring what you value at any cost. You know what you want and tend to go after it with passion, enthusiasm, and perseverance. Time would be your best friend since you must learn how to apply your emotional energy.

The shadow side of this placement is the unfulfillment of goals. Due to a lack of perseverance and concentration, you are back with mother. You depend on her ability to support your livelihood. Either the mother or any mother figure who could play this role for you.

If you are on The Path, your ruler is no longer impulsive Mars but cognitive Mercury.

With Mercury, you learn to understand emotional impulses and use the mind to please the heart. You learn to understand the true value of things and how they can support you and your family in the long run. You will collect things of use instead of uselessness and invest your money and time accordingly. In this state, you will no longer fall for instant gratification but look to the future with a clear mind.

You are in Charge | New Moon in Capricorn – Solar Eclipse

On January 5, 2019, we have the first new moon of the year 15 degrees in Capricorn and a Solar Eclipse!

During this cycle, we must see ourselves as the authority of our emotions. It’s an excellent time to shift our attention to the lessons of Capricorn while the Sun is partially eclipsed 15 degrees Capricorn. The energy of Capricorn is about owning personal power and working with raw materials/knowledge to create an order for success. With Pisces being the opposing sign, we’ve noticed chaos in our lives and how it can not be tolerated anymore. We have talents that must be developed and finally, we say yes to them.

With the Sun in Capricorn, we can see this as an opportunity to gain some perspective on how we will use this year to our best advantage and reach our personal definition of success.

Meaning of Moon phase
The New Moon means it is time for us to pray, meditate, and start with a clean slate. This is a dark period and is best used with honesty and sincerity. The shadow side of Capricorn can be overwhelming. Be mindful of the need to be recognized as an authority without deserving it. Instead, organize your day so that your emotional and physical needs are met. Once this is mastered, you are able to use your skills to organize others who are in need, thereby mastering the lesson that the energy of Capricorn is giving.

With the harmonious aspect to Neptune 14 degrees in Pisces, we can expect a gentle reminder of our emotional/physical needs. Capricorn is typically known to be emotionally reserved, but with the aspect to Neptune, it dissolves the hardened exterior and exposes the soft insides.

Ruler of the Sign
Saturn being 11 degrees in Capricorn is in a tight orb aspect to the Moon. Because of the conjunction from Saturn,  we feel the weight of our lessons that must be learned now. There’s a need to work on emotional vulnerability. There are a time and place for emotional vulnerability and Saturn frowns on the misuse of emotions. He reminds us that we must be in control or we will be controlled by others.

Saturn wants us to value our dreamy state with Neptune but also see the necessity to use our emotions appropriately so it doesn’t get the best of us. Endure the lessons and recognize Saturn is helping us build a solid foundation for 2019.

How​ ​this​ ​moon​ ​relates​ ​to​ ​the​ ​past​ ​moon​ ​phase
When the moon was Full in Cancer we were able to get a glimpse of what we needed to feel emotionally secure in 2019. >> Nurture Your Soul | Full Moon in Cancer <<. Now that the Moon is new and the Sun is eclipsed in Capricorn,  we commit to the Goal with Saturn and move up the mountain!


3​ ​points​ ​on​ ​how​ ​to​ ​take​ ​action​ ​with​ this ​Moon cycle​

Nurture Your Soul | Full Moon in Cancer

Happy Winter Solstice!

On December 22, 2018, the Moon will be Full in the sign of Cancer. The Moon is comfortable in this constellation and able to navigate our emotions with ease without much manipulation. Now that the Moon is complete in her cycle, we must be mindful of the conditions of our Soul.

Issues that have been vaguely tugging at our sense of security in the past couple of weeks are ready to come to the light. It’s been incubating with the cardinal waters of Cancer and its intention is to flow and help shape future reality.

The theme of the past New Moon helped us confront our inner truth
>> New Moon in Sagittarius. <<

Now with the Full Moon in Cancer, It is up to us to use this moment to our advantage and move with the cardinal waters. The truth of our emotional nature speaks with sensations and shows our personal needs. It is all about our ability to nurture our personal truth so that it eventually will have a life of its own.

Let it be obvious on ‘the how to’ nurture your truth: a child, project, job, home, emotional needs, etc. and take absolute responsibility for it.

Projecting on the other is no longer needed.

With the sextile to Uranus, we can use this energy to revolutionize our internal landscape. It allows us to clean house and see where we have not owned our individuality and talents. It will be the last time to do so with Uranus since this energy won’t be in Aries till eighty years from now.

Good luck!

Come home, clean house, nurture yourself!

Question to Ask Yourself

How can I structure my life so that it is constructively honoring my feelings?

Moon in Aries in the First House

If you have Moon in Aries in the first house, you are seen as an emotionally driven individual. You are strong-willed, energetic, and often ruthless in your pursuit for new adventures. You are not afraid of the unknown and tend to go head first with new opportunities. Many cannot keep up with your fervor for life and they tend to be fueled by your enthusiasm or repulsed by it.

You feel most nurtured when you lead and have control of your life. When young, you move based on gut reaction and like to figure out the details later. Life may appear to have many ups and downs especially during an outer planet transit (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto). When these types of transits take place, you’ll experience a  prolonged overwhelming feeling to be “out there” and innovation on how you relate emotionally will manifest to get you there.

There’s a need to balance feminine and masculine energy and as you mature you will learn to do so gracefully. There will be times to be passive and times to be aggressive and you will feel this intensely. To pay close attention to the cycles of the moon will be helpful because of your sensitivity to the energetic impulses of the environment and ether. When knowing what phase or sign the moon is in, you’ll understand your deeper nature and what to do at the moment if lost in direction. With the Moon in the first house, you are considered to be psychic and sensitive to the emotions and thoughts of those around you. Therefore, can manipulate or be manipulated. However, with the Moon in Aries, you quickly learn how to set boundaries and demand respect. If the other isn’t reciprocating your need for boundaries and independence, you move on to the next adventure quickly leaving the person behind without apology.

Your Mother was the type to push you to do something new. She instilled the need to have direction in your life through action, consequently, you work with her lessons in mind.  Trial and error is a common thing for you and you feel comfortable in this cycle. You learn quickly on how to react and enjoy the process of bending the environment to your liking. Although, this takes time and practice and also doesn’t include other planetary aspects that could change the nature of this.

If you are on the Spiritual path, you are operating under Mercury’s domain. Mercury is the ruler of communication, the logical mind, and understanding facts of spirit and material matter. Engaging in life with your mind and intuition is what you are here to master. Instead of emotions or the logical mind ruling you, you are here to use them both at your expense to guide you in life. You are here to bring new ideas to the environment and be the pioneer that plants the first seeds through action. Yes, there will be issues along the way, but through understanding you are able to avoid similar issues in the future.

Watch your Thoughts and Words | New Moon in Sagittarius 15 degrees

Sagittarius is mutable fire. It moves with inner ‘Wisdom’ and knowledge from higher places regardless of surroundings. The energy of Sagittarius follows its own ethics, and for the most part, sticks with the flow of “doing better” or “anywhere else but here”. It is aware of where it’s headed and moving away from. The details may not be included but big picture thinking is what’s needed at the moment. The goal is to attain knowledge through experience which will grant wisdom to share with others.

With the square to Neptune and Mars, this might be done with haste and confusion. New Moon in Sagittarius marks a time for a call to action and to be emotionally prepared.  It is easy to slip into the “anywhere else but here” attitude of Sagittarius, but tune in and see what you are moving away from.

During this phase of the Moon, we are greeted with the Dark Goddess. She is familiar with the unknown and does best with transforming psychological blockages. At this time, she prompts us to move forward with inner Wisdom and stillness. Moon square Mars signifies that there will be uncomfortable interactions in the home or with women that we are close to. Paired with Neptune, we could fall into our own delusions and continue to ignore the obvious while numbing up with vices. This could be occurring a week or so prior to or after the New Moon so know that you are not alone. The best that we can do in this phase is to be still and listen to the inner Wisdom speak. Watch your thoughts, listen to your words, and clear the path.

Questions to Ask Yourself

Am I seeing my situation at home clearly?

Is there a cultural difference that must be addressed?

Am I expressing my inner truth clearly with those that are close to me?

How can I move with peace and be flexible during this change?
