Full Moon in Sagittarius: Rocket Ship Launch

Full Moon in Sagittarius: Rocket Ship Launch

Full Moon

The moon is full in bombastic and wild Sagittarius, Monday, June 17 (3:30 am, CDT). Celebrations ensue for Midsummer on June 21 (10:54 am, CDT)! The longest day of the year gives the most hours of daylight to explore the world and discover the fruits of summertime!

It’s the essence of letting the animals out of their cages to roam free and lighting the rocket ship to watch it launch full blast! Travel, whether through a book or on a train, fills the soul up with wisdom and new perspectives. Seeking adventures and exploring provide outlets for maximum energies that peak during Midsummer. Dreams and schemes that have been gestating during 2019 are born. The risk-taking gambler comes out to play and make it big. Celebrations and libations may be aplenty, though keep aware of imbibing too much!

Midsummer

Strengths of Sagittarius are honesty and bluntness, which can shock the sensibilities at times.  Use sensitivity when communicating, as words can flare up and be extra cutting. Anger, moodiness and irritability intensify with Mars in Cancer. The sign of Cancer rules family, mothers, home, roots, and nourishment; these areas of life are stirred. How can we blow off steam to release some of the pressure and promote a sense of well-being? Fighting instincts may be sparked by personal, cultural and political strife. The boxing gloves are on, but the punches are indirect.  What are strategic and protective ways of responding to turmoil?

Summer Solstice launches into eclipse season with a solar eclipse in Cancer July 2 and a lunar eclipse in Capricorn July 16. More to follow!

To constructively harness anger, consider burning one of the Wicked Witch Mojo Outta My Way candles from Coventry Creations. This “magic with attitude” candle was created to help clear obstacles and negativity in order to help you be and do your best. To help choose which projects to concentrate on, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Creativity incense. Part of their Kyoto Crescent Moon line, this combination of cinnamon, clove, and spice is sure to help get your creative cycles spinning. To enjoy the fruits of summer and celebrate, add some of the Eye of Horus’ Van Van Spray or Van Van Oil to your daily routine. This bright, lemony oil blend is perfect for helping raise the mood and inject some added positive vibes into everything you do.

New Moon in Aries – April 18th

New Moon in Aries – April 18th

On Saturday, April 18, 2015 the New Moon will be in Aries at 1:57pm CST. This new moon helps us strengthen our relationships through finding our own true strengths.

NewMoonAriesArticleAries nudges us to say, “I am.” Luckily, the gift of Aries is that we can become centered in ourselves, discovering what we need first, before we take care of others’ needs. The shadow side of Aries is selfishness, so focus on harnessing a more mature, positive version of this Aries’ fire to strengthen yourself and relationships rather than the negative. When you are clear on what makes you your best self, and know how to ask for your needs, you will have comfortable confidence, rather than arrogance.

So use the energy of this Aries New Moon to get to know yourself and what you need in relation to others – what makes you come alive – then set a boundary so you can negotiate from a position of strength.  Mars and Venus are also aspected. Check out the video:

Mars in Taurus trining Pluto gives us determination. We can make anything happen, so be sure to know where you want to go.

Venus in Gemini will test relationships. However, it is through separation and individuation that we can appreciate the union. We must honor our selves to come together and celebrate the joining of the two. With healthy souls and communities, we as individuals can create healthier togetherness. Take care of your friendships, mentor-ships, and loves, while reflecting inward. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need!

The rebellious energy of Aries can be used for good if you need change in your life. Just be sure to carefully choose your path so you don’t run anyone over. This is a dance. Take your space, do your thing, and leave room for others so they can boogie, too!

The energy of this new moon will be strongest for three days, so take advantage of the weekend to give yourself some self-inventory time, then move forward.
