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.

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.

October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

The new moon’s in lovely Libra (October 8, 10:46pm CST), which means a purging of stagnant dynamics occurs. Toxicity that’s been lurking under the surface gets a chance for release over the next month or so.

Venus’s retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of her fall, sparks a rebellion of the dark feminine. She’s busting out of constraints that have been imposed on her for too long. Socialized to be sweet, pretty, demure, and acquiescent, now her wily twin comes out of the woodwork! Defending the boundaries of women’s rights is a reaction to recent attempted transgressions against them, and this theme is part of the new moon. Betty Crocker is tearing off her apron, because she’s not baking cookies anymore!

Discomfort’s concocted in relationships, exposing sore spots that can’t be healed if we’re not aware of them. Once the hurts are revealed, we know which salve to put on them…

It’s a time to revisit past contacts we fell out with. Is a reunion of sorts in the making? The turning of the tides in the social realms is just what the doctor ordered, because it’s now fruitful for connection with others. Whom or what have we been carrying a torch for that we weren’t aware of before? Time to reignite that flame!

To help get your mojo working this new moon, consider Coventry Creation’s Truth and Justice candle. The Eye of Horus’ New Moon Oil is also an excellent aid to anyone starting a new path or undertaking new ventures. The Rosarium’s Sekhmet incense blend, which calls upon the energies of the fierce Egyptian war goddess, can also help fuel your fire during this time.
