Moon in Aries, Sun in Libra: Fairness and Justice

Full Moon in Aries

The moon is full in Aries October 13 (4:07 pm)! A hot-temper seeks balance coolly with the sun in Libra. Icy politeness and diplomacy mitigate tough situations. Transformation is hinted at, but does an explosive power struggle become a part of the equation? Out of the blue dynamics are called to attention as a rebellious and daring edge reflects the need to break out of patterns in terms relationships, values and money. Residual twists and turns echo after what was started on the new moon September 28. Pros and cons are weighed, as feelings of discomfort arise at the threat of change. A purging of old baggage is apt.

The motivation to get up and go is fierce, trailblazing unmapped terrain! And yet taking time and following rules keeps this vim and vigor in check. Horses forget they are bound by reins, but the reins tighten as they forge ahead. How can structure and discipline be useful at this time?

Looking at what is unfair or out of balance motivates toward action, evening out the scales of justice. Deep intuitions point toward a vision. Optimism softens the hard edges in visioning what could be better.

To encourage yourself to keep balance during this time, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Amethyst incense. This smooth, silky blend of sandalwood, cinnamon, and saussurea is designed to bring balance and inspire insight. To increase your ability to concentrate and apply discipline to your energy, add some of Eye of Horus’ Focus Aid oil to your routine. This pure essential oil blend is ideal for work, study, or any project that requires your sharpest attention. To invoke the spirit of fairness, burn one of Coventry Creations’ Truth and Justice candles. With notes of frankincense, sandalwood, and myrrh, it’s reminiscent of temple incense and designed to call upon the spirit of universal balance and justice.

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

New Moon in Libra: Brisk Winds

The new moon is in Libra on September 28 (1:26 pm) following the Fall Equinox on September 23 (2:50 am).

Night and day are of equal length on the Fall Equinox as the sun enters Libra and emphasizes equality, fairness and justice. Libra is represented by the scales. What is out of balance and needs evening out? The goodies of the fall harvest are being collected and stored to give sustenance through the coming winter. A bittersweet sadness adds a touch of gray to the darkening skies as the spoils of the autumn are relished over October.

It’s time to start projects that can be completed over the long winter months. What are new ventures that can be delved into which take time, effort and dedication over a long period? In what context can teamwork be a helpful ingredient? The dreaming wheels are turning, showing visions of what salve needs to be placed on what wound. Make a fix-it plan based on where it hurts.

Yearnings to connect romantically and socially are stirred. A hard look at love could reveal the root of loneliness or isolation. Issues or blockages in relationships also make themselves known so they may be addressed. Relationships could take on a serious or committed tone, and some might be due for an ending. A surprise detour is in the mix.

To help bring some balance into your life and space, light one of Coventry Creation’s Inner Balance candles. This combination of cedar, sage, and jasmine is designed to help balance out chaotic energies and works best during the new or full moon. For some assistance in sparking those projects of yours, try burning some of Shoyeido’s Inspiration incense. With a sweet scent dominated by sandalwood notes, this incense is designed to gently encourage your creative spirit. Finally, for help in reconnecting with the spirit of love and letting it into your life, use some of the Eye of Horus’ Love Oil or Love Spray. This blend of essential oils was created to help you connect with love energies and allow those energies to surround and inspire you.

Full Moon in Aquarius: Slingshot into Outer Space

Full Moon in Aquarius: Slingshot into Outer Space

The moon is full in Aquarius on August 15 (7:29 am)! Spring free and spring forth up into outer space! Sun, Mercury, Venus and Mars in the sign of Leo pour the glamour, glitter, and gold on thickly. A lioness pounces on goals, taking pride in striving for success. What victories can be relished then loosed and catapulted into the great beyond to benefit all? A Leo quality is to shine in uniqueness, but the Aquarius moon asks how special talents contribute to the group.

Bruised egos and perceived slights cook up drama as a battle ensues to determine who is boss. Words are heated, and tempers flare hot. Fuel for self-expression wills strong emotions into creativity! Haughty kings and queens come out of the woodwork to sit upon the throne. Where do we reign as royalty, showering attention upon those we love and getting showered with love by others?

It is the season of sun-drenched summer parties and various forms of entertainment. How can we celebrate who we are and those we love? In the theatre of life, one side of the mask is the humorous clown, getting laughs from the audience by playing the fool. The other side of the mask is weeping, but will the performer convey tragedy and tears to the audience?

Jupiter in Sagittarius resonates well with the planets in Leo, as a fire is lit in the belly. What passions are calling to you at this time?

To cool heated situations and detach when needed, try burning one of Coventry Creations’ Emotional Balance candles. This rich blend of sandalwood and rose helps us find our emotional center and operate from a place of calm. To launch your unique talents and benefit the group, light some of Shoyeido’s Ruby incense. Part of their Jewel Series, this incense is designed to evoke the energies of the ruby, a stone of strength, heroism, and courage. To express joy as well as the vulnerability of sorrow, carry with you a piece of lapis lazuli. This stone has been revered for thousands of years for its noble qualities, and it helps us to express our desires to other and to the universe.
