Full Flower Moon In Scorpio

ffm-2015

Tonight is the Full Flower Moon, beginning at 11:42 PM Eastern Daylight Time, so named because of all the flowers blooming during this time of year. May’s Full Moon is also known as the Bright Moon because it is very bright and the Corn Planting Moon because this is the time when farmers would plant corn for it to be ready for the harvest.

Like nature at this time, we are blossoming, we are growing day by day with the strength of the Sun. Like solar panels, we are soaking up the Suns energy. The Full Moon is in Scorpio and it shines its light in the darkest places, encouraging us to peer in and see what’s there. Things that were once hidden will show themselves to us, we will be able to see ourselves and others in a whole new light, and look at our lives more clearly. Our psychic abilities and intuition will be at an all time high, so use this time to look to the future and see what it is we truly want and where we want to see ourselves.

Like a snake shedding its skin as a form of renewal, the Full Moon in Scorpio calls to each of us to shed the layers that are ready, thus bringing forth a rebirth, allowing a new skin to emerge. Welcome change, allow the light of awareness to penetrate the dark areas of ignorance, shame, and deep-seated resentment that lies hidden underneath issues. Give yourself permission to heal and move forward in your life, using the potential of the Full Moon to symbolically die in order to be reborn.

With this Full Moon, emotions will be raw, we may find we are feeling a flow of different emotions and a feeling of being pulled in many different directions. Let the waters of Scorpio wash away your emotional pain and cleanse you of negative feelings.

The next two weeks will bring lessons in self-transformation toward a more effective destiny, such as moving on to bigger and better things. Continue to maintain balance as you clean up the residue of what has already fractured in your life. We are now in a new era, and are on the threshold of things beginning to develop a lot more quickly than they have in recent months. While things may still feel somewhat slow, they are about to quicken in a big way.

These are magnificent times! Change and shifts are to be welcomed. Let the energy of this Full Moon help you see where you are emotionally stuck and resistant, and allow yourself to surrender to the gifting that is coming your way.

Have a Blessed Full Moon & may the Goddess watch over you.

Full Pink Moon In Aries

fullpinkmoon2015
Tonight is the Full Pink Moon. This name comes from the wild groundphlox, which is one of the earliest widespread flowers of spring. Other names for this month’s Moon are Seed Moon, The Wind Moon, the Full Sprouting Grass Moon, the Egg Moon, and among coastal tribes, the Full Fish Moon, because this was the time that fish swam upstream to spawn.There was a Lunar Eclipse this morning turning the Moon a dark blood-red color known as a Blood Moon. This is always a special time because the earth, the sun, and the moon were all in perfect alignment for a brief time.

In April, the thunderstorms of March are beginning to subside, and the wind picks up. Seeds are being blown about on the breezes, spreading life all around from one place to the next. This is a brilliant Moon to use for any new projects or ideas we may have, it is also the perfect time to conceive as fertility is abundant at this time.

The pull of the past can be strong at a lunar eclipse and this one is certainly no exception. We may find our best intentions going up in smoke as we embrace old habits and fall back into old destructive patterns. Try and be strong and not take the easy option, instead take the road which will give you the best results.

Emotions are running high on the Pink Moon, our smallest emotions can be magnified and intensified making us feel a little overwhelmed at times. This is the time to put your gratitude forth for all the many blessings in your life and to clearly speak aloud your intentions and desires to be heard by the universe as we step across this edge to the other side.

We are in a powerful time where we are asked to look at what is no longer working in our lives and inhibiting our further growth. Where are we surrounded by things, people, situations, attitudes that are actually toxic and need to be burned in the fire, so we can be reborn like the phoenix.

Use the light of this Full Moon to cast away negativity and the negative aspects of our lives and to let positive and good pour in. Open yourself up and allow your vessel to be filled with the blessings that the universe is sending out now.

Have a blessed Full Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.

Full Crow Moon In Virgo

fcm-2015
Tonight is the Full Crow Moon, also known as the Worm Moon and the Sap Moon. It is called the Crow Moon for the cawing crows that signal the end of winter. As the earth thaws, worms start to appear and it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.

As we move toward Ostara, the Spring Equinox on March 20th when both day and night are at equal length, we are reminded to find our own inner balance and focus inward toward inner wisdom and self analysis.

This Full Moon is about cultivating and growing, just as the Sun’s energy and nature is doing. Plant the seeds of new ventures now, plan for the future, think about what it is you want and need, and set about putting a plan into action. Use this month for magical workings related to rebirth and regrowth. New life is blooming during this phase of the moon, as is prosperity and fertility.

The Full Moon always illuminates our inner feelings and desires, so emotions can be quite raw and enhanced. The Full Moon is in the sign of Virgo. This means we may be over-critical of ourselves and of others. Try not to see the bad in everything, instead looking for the good. Virgo is also a very practical sign, so use its energy for getting jobs done that you have been putting off for a while. Tackle any problems and bring them to an end.

This Full Moon brings light to whatever was hidden in the darkness or buried within the subconscious, such as emotional pain or our deepest desires, but once awareness happens, you are able to make realistic changes. Our emotional levels move like strong, turbulent waves in the Ocean during high tide for some during this Full Moon. Emotional reactions may be strong, energies may feel irritable or uptight, but don’t worry, this too will pass. We are amidst great times of transformation which are heralding major new beginnings. Change isn’t always easy or comfortable and it’s constant, so we must strive to keep our balance.

Let the energy of this Full Moon wash over you and cleanse your spirit, use it to heal yourself, both emotionally and physically. Let the moonlight bathe and soothe you, body and soul. Seek a balance of light and dark and see the truth in your life, however much it may hurt. Only then can we do something about it. The best use of this Full Moon can be about harnessing the potential for self-adjustments, inner work, and healing.

Have a blessed Full Moon, and may the Goddess watch over you.

Full Snow Moon In Leo

fmb1

Tonight is The Full Snow Moon (also known as the Storm, Chaste, Quickening, or Hunger Moon). It is our wake up call. During this time, all in nature is pure and full of potential. The hibernating creatures are beginning to slowly rouse themselves, quickening their heartbeats, and creeping out of their dormant period. Mother Earth is gently awakening, full of new possibilities. The Snow Moon uses the same force upon us.

There is a gentle pulling upon our consciousness at this time, we become aroused to the latent forces within ourselves. Now is the time to turn the mirror upon ourselves, and see what is reflected. A time to grasp the buds of new paths and ideas, and like nature, be prepared to welcome life anew.

February’s Full Moon is in Leo, the sign of ambition and confidence. You should feel a rush of energy and want to get things done. The Leo Full Moon message is awaken to your heart’s desires and act on your truth, figure out what it really is you want from life, then work out a bold plan to achieve it.

The Leo Full Moon can be emotionally charged. Leo is larger than life. Leo rules big emotions. Leo rules drama. You may feel overly sensitive to the remarks and actions of other people. This Moon can bring out the drama Kings and Queens in all of us. The Leo Full Moon may feel pretty intense. If you like intense, you may well enjoy its spark and energy, but if you’re already feeling somewhat jaded and in need of a rest, it might be a good time to lay low and let the world pass you by rather than engaging too deeply with it.

The Full Moon will be very bright tonight as it highlights our lives and shows us underneath the masks we all wear on a daily basis. This is a time to harness your inner power and your strengths and look to the future, make plans, and be brave in your decisions. The cosmic message is to balance your heart with your head. Find the middle ground in your relationships. Live from your heart. Yet, be practical in your approach to your dreams and goals. Plant the seeds of fate within ourselves and watch them develop over the coming months.

The best part of Leo is the inner child. You are to nourish and protect your childlike innocence. You are to be open to new ideas and fresh perspectives. Be curious about life. Be engaged in the magic of the moment. Be in your heart. Let go of the need to criticize and judge yourself and others. This will kill your creativity. Instead, allow yourself and others to make mistakes. It is the only way we learn what works and what does not work for us. There’s a sense of free-spirited enjoyment, a faith in happy outcomes and the ability to speak from Love and the heart.

The Moon is plump with positive energy. There are no negative aspects to this Moon. This is a celebration Moon. A reward for the hard work and intense striving that you have done. Leo is a fire sign and this Moon is full of fiery energy. Fire is cleansing, let the fire wash over you and cleanse you anew.

Have a blessed Full Moon and May the Goddess watch over you.

Full Wolf Moon in Cancer

fwm-2015

Tonight will be the first Full Moon of the year. It is called the Wolf Moon because at this time hungry wolves would howl up to the big, bright January Moon outside villages. It is also called the Cold Moon, Winter Moon, and the Old Moon.

The word January came from the Roman name for this month. It was named after the God Janus, who was the God with two faces. This was the God of the past and future, beginnings and endings. This Moon is a time of protection and strength for guarding ourselves. While it is the first full Moon of the calendar year, in terms of nature it occurs in the middle of the cold winter season, a season of death and desolation. In this respect, the Wolf Moon can be seen as a time of both beginnings and endings. We have said goodbye to the old year and are now looking toward the new year.

This Full Moon is actually a Grand Cross Full Moon- which means there are planets in all the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn) and they are all squaring or opposing each other. This brings up crisis points, but also the potential for major realization, ‘aha’ moments, and inner or outer shifts in our personal lives, relationships, home/family situations and career or life purpose.

This is not a light and casual Full Moon. It is kicking off 2015 in a big way, with focus on what needs to shift, change, transform, end, and/or be released in our lives. We can use this Full Moon to get clarity on where we are holding on and what we need to let go of. Because the Full Moon is in the emotional sign of Cancer, part of what we need to let go of is our emotional attachment to the past.

This can be a loony lunar peak. Stand by for moments of irrationality or lashing out. Your emotions will be on high alert for a while, so watch what you say to people in heated moments. Try to find some time to relax and calm down and to soothe frayed nerves. It may feel hard to make decisions at the moment. You may feel you’re being pulled in all directions and are not quite sure which way to turn. Try to stay calm and the right decisions will come to you.

The Cancer Moon is reminding you to use your feelings to guide your life. What you think and feel matters. Feelings are your indicators in every moment. Feelings don’t lie. Feelings are never right or wrong. Feelings are the best part of you. Your power lies in what you do with your feelings.

This Full Moon asks us to make a decision. We will feel as though we’re at a crossroads; to stay with the old and familiar or move into the unknown of something new. Try not to go to extremes, it is all about keeping a balance. The waters may seem stormy now, but they will calm down and you will feel a sense of clarity and see everything for what it is. Use the water aspect of Cancer to wash over you and to heal you, both physically and emotionally.

Have a blessed Full Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.

december

Gratitude for what we have and a willingness to move with the energy that is calling is required.

fullicemooningemini-december

This particular Full Moon will not be boring and will have an unpredictable vibe along with it. What was stuck may suddenly begin to move or shift. If emotions are clogged, they may surface and flow. Allow this. Be with it as loving as possible with yourself and others. The potential of the Full Moon in Gemini is to become aware of where you are engaging in thought, emotions and behaviors may be on auto-pilot. This may be generating a lot of mental stress and tension plus sending out mixed signals to others and the Universe.

Some people may be irritable and cranky. Emotions can be raw and urgent. Breathe deeply. Ground yourself. Keep a sense of humor. Be of good cheer. Be the calm in the storm. Get in the driver seat and empower yourself. Be honest with yourself. Stop arguing over small silly things and try more acceptance. Take responsibility for your life. In this way, you can change what is not working. You are the master of your destiny. Take your power back from society and/or other people. Learn from your mistakes. Vow to do better next year. Make a commitment to your success. Be adaptable. Make friends with change. It is not the enemy. Change is your friend. Change sheds the old and gives birth to the new.

The Gemini Full Moon is a party Moon. This Full Moon is a brief break from the intense growth and striving you have done. The Gemini Full Moon says that it is time to celebrate your life. Celebrate your victories. Even the smallest of accomplishments should be celebrated, look back on the past year and all the lessons you have learned, the people we have met and the people we have lost.

With Yule and New year approaching look deep into yourself and ask what you want to happen in the coming year, ask yourself how you will bring it about. Make this the year that you make all your dreams come true. The energy from this Full Moon wants you to succeed. Tell the Moon your hopes and dreams write them down on paper and burn them by a white candle. As the smoke drifts to the heavens the universe will receive your message.

Have a blessed Full Moon. May the Goddess watch over you.

New Moon In Sagittarius

sag-newmoon

Today is the November New Moon in Sagittarius. We have an opportunity for a new start, a fresh cycle where we can tune in, envision, and aim our arrows of light to what we desire. This is a time of aligning with our deepest truth and having the courage to move, express, and create from our center.

The Sagittarius New Moon is full of energy. Sagittarius is a fire sign which draws on ambition and creativity. Get out of the box of limited thinking. Challenge your perceptions of reality. Align your goals with your truth and you will be successful. What is your point of brilliance? Your point of brilliance is where you shine the brightest. That is doing what you do to the best of your ability.

This is a fiery New Moon, full of strong feelings and passion. Fire has a way of burning off dead wood, and cleansing past hurts and guilt. If you’re one of the many who have been wading in your own emotional-psychic swamps, let a natural wildfire catch on, and use them to heal your spirit, like a phoenix rising from the ashes.

Sagittarius will give us a boost of confidence and empowerment over this Moon cycle. So be bolder, brighter, and braver than usual, go for what you thought you couldn’t do before, take a chance and see where it takes you. The coming 4 week period initiated by this New Moon will help us get very clear about what roles we are and are not willing to play, and we’ll all need to stay focused, not become hesitant, timid, or scattered in our responses while opening to new discoveries and a wise use of imagination. Ask questions and seek answers.

Sagittarius is considered the sign of the seeker and the philosopher as well as of Cosmic Law. It focuses us on the important questions in life: Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? It also gives us a sense of wonder and joy as we contemplate some force greater that calls to us. The archer points his arrow to our future. This New Moon encourages you to dream big. Sagittarius rules future vision, you may experience strange or psychic dreams at this time and your psychic awareness will be enhanced.

Have a blessed New Moon, may the Goddess watch over you.
