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.

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.
