New Moon in Sagittarius: Dusting Off Photo Albums

New Moon in Sagittarius: Dusting Off Photo Albums

Bounteous jolliness and optimism spark up during the new moon in Sagittarius on December 7 (1:20am, CDT)!

The warmth of fire crackles as we revel in the holiday season, for better or worse. The extra fieriness in the cosmos reflects the actual fires igniting in our country. This new moon opens the heart to empathize with the suffering of others, such as those affected by that devastation.

Getting lost in a movie, a painting, a song, or a dance stirs the imagination and channels the angst of difficult times. Dream of the future, envision changes for the better.

The holiday season is filled with nostalgia. Take a stroll down memory lane. It’s a time to reminisce about days gone by. A yearning for yesterday seeps into our holiday punch bowl. Dust off the old photo albums, discovering long lost messages. A fogginess and romanticism permeates the atmosphere…

To tune into your dreams at night, try using Eye of Horus’ Lavender Dreams spray to scent your bedroom or bedsheets. It’s designed to help relax you into sleep and ensure a peaceful dream time. To ease the winter blues, bring a little warmth and sunlight into your home with Coventry Creations’ Energy and Will candles. To find clarity on your path, consider consulting the Prisma Visions Tarot, a deck uniquely suited to telling stories and providing insight.

Full Moon in Gemini: Paint Your Turkey Hot Pink!

Full Moon in Gemini: Paint Your Turkey Hot Pink!

Flamboyance characterizes this full moon in Gemini (November 22, 11:39pm, CDT) on Thanksgiving Day. Let that paintbrush be big and full of bold rainbow hues! Expressiveness is increased and the bluntness of pure honesty could turn into strife, however. Watch for situations getting overblown.

We can breath a sigh of relief as we move out of a heavy Scorpio transit that thrived on trauma and intensity. Transmute that intensity into painting or song, whatever artistic medium you choose. Wild musings run on high that you might wonder if you imagined it all. It’s a time for putting that imagination to use!

Generosity and warmth are themes this Thanksgiving Day! Living it up is good, yet be mindful of overdoing it. Surprises and changes in the plans may be possible, be aware of miscommunications and misunderstandings with loved ones.

Going with the flow (either emotionally or weather-wise) may be a helpful ingredient. Either way, the fire in the belly is on full blast! An abundance of good cheer is in the air!

To inspire creativity, try burning Shoyeido’s New Moon Creativity incense. It’s the perfect backdrop to the artistic endeavors you’re dying to start. To increase adaptability in these changing times, try burning one of Coventry Creation’s Inner Balance candles. A blend of cedar, sage, and jasmine, it helps to clear the mind and calm the heart. To lift your spirits as we enter shorter, darker days, try keeping a bottle of Eye of Horus’ Anxiety Relief aromatherapy oil around. It’s helps to let go of anxious thoughts and stressful situations, allowing us to fill our hearts with positive energy.

New Moon in Scorpio: Free Your Voice

New Moon in Scorpio: Free Your Voice

A deep and passionate new moon is in Scorpio (November 7, 10:01am, CDT). This new moon, in particular, resonates with the eclipse that occurred on August 11 of last summer. Think back to significant events of that time. There is now more fuel to turn “flashes in the pan” into something more permanent! A powerful push helps to move us toward our destination.

Themes of love, beauty, and relationships have been under the microscope since October 5. Venus has retrograded back into Libra and dialogues with game changer Uranus. What we value, whom we love, how we spend our time, and how we spend money may change. Venus and Uranus together symbolize “shattering the glass ceiling” that has oppressed minorities and women. This aspect occurs on November 6-Election Day. Our voices are not lost!

Jupiter is at its last degree in Scorpio: a celebration of the macabre and the lusty reach a nearly uncomfortable peak. Skeletons come out to dance! Secrets pop out of the closet for review.  On November 8th, Jupiter enters Sagittarius, and a jovial celebration ensues! This time of year, the veil between our world and the spirit world is thinner, almost like a sheer negligee.

To help tune into the unseen, try lighting Coventry Creations’ Ancestor candle to help you tap into wisdom from the other side. Help foster an atmosphere of awareness, especially of your loves and passions, with Shoyeido’s Emerald essence incense. For more insight, consider shuffling the Santa Muerte Tarot deck, which is dedicated to seeking answers through the patron of oppressed peoples.
