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.

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo: The Show Must Go On

Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo: The Show Must Go On

The moon is full in Leo (11:15 pm, CDT) with a lunar eclipse (11:1 2pm, CDT) on Saturday, January 20!

This moon and eclipse ushers in a stimulating flow as the sun enters Aquarius. The instinct to get up and go is strong, but patience may be tested. A daredevil who is ready to tackle an amazing feat pauses to plan the next move before pulling the first stunt. The first full moon of 2019 could be characterized as clownish and raucous!

The solar eclipse January 5 illuminates a hidden truth and the lunar eclipse January 20 opens doors to new possibilities. A volcanic dynamic uncaps stuck energies! Where to go now? Which road is now cleared, paved, and ready to travel? Restlessness urges movement. The fuel in the tank is full, and engines are revved!

Harder edges and heaviness in the planetary tapestry inspire a yearning for change. Realign hopes with reality. Submerge into the ocean to see what musings the mermaids have crafted in the deep blue. What ache for the “impossible” dream comes back up to the surface? Keep seeking that dream and be reminded there is more to our world than is visible.

To adeptly surf the full moon waves, consider lighting one of Coventry Creations’ Emotional Balance candles. Keyed to the element of water, it’s meant to help us keep up with the ups and downs of life. To help handle the flow of change, consider incorporating Eye of Horus’ Focus Aid aromatherapy oil into your daily routine. A blend of natural essential oils, it’s designed to keep you focused and sharp, no matter what gets thrown at you. To keep dreams and inspiration alive, burn some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense from their Angelic line. It contains sandalwood, which helps to expanding consciousness and awaken the senses.
