Slumber in the Deep Blue Waters:  New Moon in Pisces

Slumber in the Deep Blue Waters: New Moon in Pisces

The new moon is in Pisces on Wednesday, March 6 (10:03 am, CDT). Sleepy, dreamy, and watery Neptune fuses with sun and moon.

Psychic receptivity is heightened, favoring communication with the spirit world. Diving into pools of music, movies, and paintings provides a channel into other realms. Slipperiness pervades the atmosphere, making it trickier to pin down plans. However, the emphasis of planets in earth helps to solidify the intangible.

Larger than life schemes return again for review. There lies a beauty in the longing for what is just out of reach. Once desires are actually met, where do the glamour and magic go?

Expect the unexpected as two notable astrological events coincide within 24 hours of the new moon. First, Mercury in Pisces goes retrograde March 5. A fish swimming one direction switches and swims the opposite way. Truths reveal themselves, albeit against a backdrop of a thick and misty fog. Phantasms from times long ago return again. Give time to decipher messages as the misty fog diminishes. Weather events of large proportions, including precipitation and moisture, may be possible. Issues surround oil, with potential for leakages.

Uranus re-enters Taurus March 6 and will remain in that sign for the next 8 years! This particular journey of Uranus in Taurus has yet to be discovered, though we had a preview from last May to November. Will new currencies be part of the story, leaning toward economic sustenance outside of systems that have been relied upon? Radical shifts in perspective may take place regarding land ownership, alongside earthquakes and earth shattering revelations. A higher attunement to mother earth and the natural world, including the sensual body and its sacred sexuality, may be called for!

To find grounding and clarity, try some of Eye of Horus’ own Focus Aid aromatherapy oil. This blend of essential oils is designed to keep you centered and sharp. To explore trance states, consider burning some of Rosarium Blends’ Eye of Horus resin incense. This special blend is designed to awaken all six senses and stimulate awareness. To help decipher truths amidst confusion, burn one of Coventry Creations’ Truth and Justice votive candles. These candles, inspired by ancient temple incense blends, help us to discern truth from lies and seek out what is good for us.

Full Moon in Virgo: Perfecting the Dream

Full Moon in Virgo: Perfecting the Dream

The moon is full in Virgo on February 19 (9:53 am, CDT). The question is does this full moon typify the Virgo archetype of mercurial perfectionist? Dreamers, musicians and mystics take center stage, yet practicality has its foot firmly in the door. Optimistic idealism meshes with demands of the material world.

Earlier in January, fieriness in the cosmos and the eclipses stirred it all up with a sonic boom echoing throughout! The dust has now settled a bit. After the ruckus, it is now time to drift back down to earth and lay an ear next to the gurgling brook. What whispers does the water have for you?

Take note that Uranus’s 8-year journey through Aries will soon come to an end in early March. Uranus won’t be back in Aries for another 84 years- and it’s been a heavy hitter and pattern-breaker for many people and cultures. Part of the journey has been rebellion, not accepting the status quo, and pioneering into new territories. Gender, race and sexual identity politics have been earth shattering, but not without unrest and discomfort!

How may we be guided to solidify political and societal breakthroughs that hold respect for Mother Nature and are more reverent of the divine and dark feminine, racial equity, and social justice for oppressed peoples and the LGBTQ community?

To heighten appreciation for the arts, consider burning some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense, designed to enhance creativity and expression. To help manifest, add some of Eye of Horus’ Dragon’s Blood oil to any energetic or magical work you do. To make time for health and well-being, try burning Coventry Creations’ Healing candle, which aims to help improve all aspects of well-being.

New Moon in Aquarius:  Uncorking the Bottle

The new moon is in Aquarius on February 4 (2:03pm CDT). Aquarius, an air sign, lifts up and detaches from the weightiness in the planetary placements. Pioneering toward uncharted terrain and raising the middle finger to oppressive systems is motivating. Original ideas come into consciousness on how to fix problems, personal or societal. Connect and share ideas with like-minded friends! The new terrain is rich in seeding philosophies that embody the humanistic perspective that sees beyond just muscle and bone.

The pressure of making the grade, making the cut, and getting it right can serve the purpose of productivity. Yet a boundary-setting, wall-building philosophy can function on over-drive and smother the natural creativity it’s meant to enhance. The urge to impatiently charge ahead on a quest is strong, but be aware of encountering obstacles that trigger irritability. This frustration does not completely block progress per se, but pushes toward it.

An effervescent rebelliousness breaks loose of its constraints. The instinct to put the pedal to the metal and drive is hot behind the wheel, yet the gears are still in park. What bottle needs to be uncorked, shaken loose, or shaken free? A wild and unbridled force bursts forth from its cages. There’s a feeling of being so close to freedom that you can taste it…

To cool down anger and exercise patience, try some of Eye of Horus’ Meditation aromatherapy oil. It’s designed to help bring a calm, contemplative atmosphere. To help connect with friends and like-minded groups, try energizing yourself with Coventry Creations’ Happiness candle. It’s bright, cheery scent helps encourage a sunny outlook and optimism. To blow off steam in healthy ways, consider carrying a piece of tourmalinated quartz. It’s an excellent aid for transmuting the negative to the positive.
