New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

The new moon is in Libra on September 28 (1:26 pm) following the Fall Equinox on September 23 (2:50 am).

Night and day are of equal length on the Fall Equinox as the sun enters Libra and emphasizes equality, fairness and justice. Libra is represented by the scales. What is out of balance and needs evening out? The goodies of the fall harvest are being collected and stored to give sustenance through the coming winter. A bittersweet sadness adds a touch of gray to the darkening skies as the spoils of the autumn are relished over October.

It’s time to start projects that can be completed over the long winter months. What are new ventures that can be delved into which take time, effort and dedication over a long period? In what context can teamwork be a helpful ingredient? The dreaming wheels are turning, showing visions of what salve needs to be placed on what wound. Make a fix-it plan based on where it hurts.

Yearnings to connect romantically and socially are stirred. A hard look at love could reveal the root of loneliness or isolation. Issues or blockages in relationships also make themselves known so they may be addressed. Relationships could take on a serious or committed tone, and some might be due for an ending. A surprise detour is in the mix.

To help bring some balance into your life and space, light one of Coventry Creation’s Inner Balance candles. This combination of cedar, sage, and jasmine is designed to help balance out chaotic energies and works best during the new or full moon. For some assistance in sparking those projects of yours, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense. With a sweet scent dominated by sandalwood notes, this incense is designed to gently encourage your creative spirit. Finally, for help in reconnecting with the spirit of love and letting it into your life, use some of the Eye of Horus’ Love Oil or Love Spray. This blend of essential oils was created to help you connect with love energies and allow those energies to surround and inspire you.

Full Moon in Pisces 2019

The moon is full in Pisces on September 13 (11:32 pm). Best-laid plans built upon exactitude and carefulness bend sideways, allowing big picture visions to enter in. A prickly irritability, which demands every detail remains in its right place, gets exhausted and loses focus. Precise and rigid expectations could set up disappointment when plans seem to flop. Allow flexibility to adapt to changing circumstances. Letting nature take its course could steer off the beaten path. You just may get more than you bargain for. Fertile ground has the garden of flowers blossoming with colors so exotically beautiful they appear out of this world!

Psychic experiences color this full moon. Being in touch with immense suffering turns up empathic meters. Dreams provide an alternate route to seek answers. There is a heightened sensitivity to the foods, medicines and liquids (especially alcohol) that are ingested; take note when something doesn’t sit well in the gut.

Seven planets in earth give a sensibility about how to best navigate the physical plane, which can lead to a productive time. An awareness of limitations and rules combined with wild imagination make quite the dynamic duo this full moon! On September 18, Saturn turns direct. Look back to late April and events catalyzed at that time. A change in direction of the usual flow is indicated, though how this plays out for you depends on your natal birth chart. To find out more about how your natal chart affects this full moon, come in for a reading with Madeline Youngstrom.

To stay adaptable and flexible in the face of sudden change, try lighting one of Coventry Creations’ Inner Balance candles. This delicious blend of cedar, sage, and jasmine is designed to keep you centered and balanced no matter what happens around you. To tap into your psychic nature and the power of your dreams, consider adding some of Morningstar’s Aqua incense to your routine. This exquisite incense blend evokes the power of water, which encourages us to go deep into our subconscious for the answers. For a boost to your productivity, add some of Eye of Horus’ Dragon’s Blood oil to your practice. This earthy, sweet oil helps to kick-start and fire up your own energies and the energy of anything your working on.

New Moon in Virgo: A Fine-Toothed Comb

New Moon in Virgo: A Fine-Toothed Comb

The new moon on August 30 (5:37 am) starts with five planets in Virgo! The art of organization and categorization is thematic of this new moon. What could stand to be improved by tidying up? What foods and habits, when assimilated, assist health and well-being? As summer harvest is reaped, using discernment helps to cut the wheat from the chaff. It may be a time to nerd out to trivia or categorize the junk drawer. Yet, as the moon waxes over the next two weeks, a changeable mercurialness trickles in, asking for adjustability and adaptability. Creative juices flow at high levels!

Eight planets reside in earth as Mercury, Sun, Moon, Mars, and Venus move quickly through the sign of Virgo. The practical and measurable aspects of life are of focus. How can innovation be used with a rule-bound approach and infused with new systems of organization? Developments in technology, such as in farming, green energy, and healthcare are highlighted. How can designs be improved and transferred from the mind into the physical world? What genius ideas are ready to be made real? What design flaws need correcting?

Inferiority complexes and insecurities about measuring up may arise. Anxious nerves can be channeled toward productivity. How can finicky worry be directed toward perfecting that art project, new work endeavor or health regime? The inner critic, directed toward the self or the outside world, gets louder. How can criticisms be useful in fixing problems and making it work more smoothly?

For help in tidying up and getting your creativity flowing, try a bit of Eye of Horus’ Focus Aid oil. This aromatherapy blend is designed to help sharpen the mind and keep your concentration solid. To help with manifestation and bringing your ideas into reality, try lighting one of Coventry Creations’ Ganesha candles. This sweet-smelling candle is designed to invoke the energy of Ganesha, Hindu god of opportunities and the one who opens the roads. For help in silencing negative voices and inner critics, try carrying or using in your practice a piece of snowflake obsidian. This stone helps dissolve negativity, move us past emotional blockages, and get us into positive thought patterns.
