Mead Moon, Rose Moon, Flower Moon, Strawberry Moon, also as the first full moon after the summer solstice it is known as the Thunder Moon or Hay Moon.

What’s all this about a Super Moon?

The crest of the moon’s full phase in June 2013, and perigee (which is the moon’s closest point to the earth), fall within an hour of each other. The moon will be full only 20 minutes after it reaches perigee, or its closest point to Earth in its orbit. This full moon is not only the closest and largest full moon of the year. It also presents the moon’s closest encounter with Earth for all of 2013. It will be 356,991 kilometers from Earth, within 600 kilometers of its closest possible approach. The moon will not be so close again until August, 2014.

Capricorn Full Moon Opposite Cancerian Sun

The Full Moon in Capricorn makes us so eager to prove ourselves, that we may misinterpret the expectations and reactions of others.  We are all a bit more goal-oriented than usual, but should take time to communicate objectively.  Make sure that the goals you’re striving to achieve are the same ones everyone else is envisioning.  We may find ourselves trying too hard, or working at crossed-purposes.  The stress of economic insecurity can make you physically ill, at this point.  This is because you are feeling more attached to home and family right now, and perceived threat to that security hits a little harder than usual..  Be gentle on yourself for a few days.  Don’t push yourself, or stress yourself to the point of detriment.  Use the nurturing energy of [Read more…]

May Full Flower Moon in Sagittarius

May Full Flower Moon in Sagittarius

We welcome the flowers and the Moon this May.  The Moon will be Full on Friday, May 24th at 11:26 PM Central at  04° 08′ Sagittarius

Full Flower MoonThe May moon is usually known as the Flower Moon, but it is also called the Milk Moon, in China it is the Dragon Moon, in Medieval England it was the Hare Moon, and some pagans call it the Grass Moon.  Many other tribes and places had many other names, but the current most common reference in America is the Full Flower Moon.

Our ideals and concerns will be blooming this Full Flower Moon

The Sun in Gemini heightens our ability to communicate with others, but the Moon, opposite in Sagittarius, heightens our ability to distort their reactions.  The sun and moon are each square neptune right now, as well. The Square is a 45° angle, which creates some difficulty.

Since Neptune is in Pisces (the Great Counsellor), we get a wealth of water which is tough to grab hold of or pin down, and results in a wishy washy soup of best intentions. Expect to experience a vague sense of concern toward unrealistic and/or unattainable ideals. This dynamic trio of Neptune square the Sun and Moon will [Read more…]

New Moon in Aquarius and a February Challenge

Feb 10th, 2013 01:22:46 AM CST

New Moon – 21° 43′ Aquarius

The exceptionally powerful new moon in Aquarius takes place at 21 degrees in the very early morning on February 10th.  Your intention should be innovative and designed to liberate you. As the New Moon Squares the nodes it becomes a crossroads between future and past.  If you find yourself in that in-between state, the liminal place, don’t think of yourself as stuck. Consider it the Dreamtime, or the Ground of Being, where all that potential is, where you are now.

New Moon is goal time, and with the new moon in Aquarius, we’re looking at creative, innovative, exciting and collaborative things. So think about what exactly it is you want to manifest with the New Moon Energy. Be specific and write it all out. Actually write down a few things, a sentence or paragraph.

I was reading a fitness blog about a February Challenge presented by the Movement Minneapolis.  It wasn’t about what you would think… not necessarily about working out or losing weight. Instead it was about, basically, making the most of what you’ve got by driving the top line, that is, adding to the things which help you to thrive rather than just survive.  Perfect for New Moon in Aquarius!
