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.

Full Moon in Taurus: Exploring Uncharted Terrain

Full Moon in Taurus: Exploring Uncharted Terrain

Moon in Taurus conjunct Uranus (October 24, 11:45am, CST). The moon is full in sensual Taurus, but it won’t be sated by the usual “comfort food.”

Wine and roses are not going to suffice as the typical tool for seduction. The appropriate garb is not the traditional gown and tux. Instead, it’s wild, funky and racy — definitely off the beaten path!

Sun in passionate Scorpio with Venus Rx suggests taking a closer look at what lurks below, to see what needs to be revived and regenerated. Ghosts, ex-lovers and past connections revisit us with a message. Deciphering the meaning may take some time.

That which was once permanent and prolific stands still at a crossroads. A desire for newness is challenged by a resistance to change. Processing and re-working continues before going forward.

Opportunities for radical breakthroughs arise!

For help navigating these changing times, try meditating with Shoyeido’s Diamond incense, designed to encourage inner strength and resolve. Calm your frayed nerves by scenting your space with some of Eye of Horus’ own Lavender Dreams spray. Add some extra passion and spice to your love life with the Love’s Enchantment candle by Coventry Creations.
