Blue Moon in Libra, March 31, 2018

By Thraicie Hawkner

The dynamic, head-strong energy of this Aries Sun is at odds with the desire for diplomacy, brought by the Blue Moon in Libra. We want to take action and make things happen! But the position of this moon also strives to avoid conflict. Finding a productive balance may prove difficult.

Tigereye or Tiger Iron stones are recommended, as well as Blue Agate (or other throat chakra stones) to help us find effective words, rather than confrontational ones. Also, calming blue candles can be dressed with frankincense oil, chamomile oil, or clary sage oil. (Our “Peace” candle, from Coventry Creations, might also be an appropriate choice.) These oils, or the actual herbs along with salt, can be added to a bath for a ritual soak.

Focus on change you are trying to affect; clear your mind of other chatter and distraction. Envision the change already in place, as if it were the normal way of things. Feel the relief of this successful change, and breathe this sensation into your core. When you pull the plug, all blockage to this change will be drawn down the drain along with the cleansing water.

In addition to the Blue Moon, we also have a very strong conjunction between Mars and Saturn in Capricorn. The key words are “Strategy” and “Purpose.” This conjunction pairs well with the Blue Moon in Libra, which we just discussed. If we can stay focused on the goal, and stay on plan, success is assured.

Add to this the sextile between a Scorpio Jupiter, and a Capricorn Pluto, and you have some real magic! This is the combination that brings big social change (or a bold change to your role within that paradigm). This is the perfect time to focus on the world we want to live in, and the steps to get there, rather than regretting what has been.

Full Wolf Moon January 2016

Full Wolf Moon January 2016

Full moon in Leo is party time. But underneath it all there are interesting power dynamics. Mars is in Scorpio, from now through the end of July. That’s a long time for this fiesty planet to be in one sign. Mars helps us tune in to what we really desire in the best of ways. What is your calling? What is your soul path? Are you on it? The entire first half of the year is time to find and align with your life mission.

The full moon in Leo invites us to find out how our light shines for the benefit of others. It’s not just “look at me,” it’s more “look and see.”

Other aspects worth looking at is Mercury coming out of retrograde and going direct, as well as Mercury conjunct Pluto. Get all the details in the latest Moon Magic Video:

May Full Flower Moon in Scorpio

May Full Flower Moon in Scorpio

Scorpio Full Moon Glyph and Full Moon ImageOn Sunday, May 3, 2015, we’ll have a Full Moon in Scorpio at 10:48pm CST. This Full Flower Moon brings us to the lusty month of May. The energy is earthy and sensual, urging us to dig our toes into the mud. Our psyche will be bringing up all kinds of toxins, such as possessiveness, obsessions, and resentments, so it’s a great time to cleanse, detox, and let go; getting healthy in the mind and body.

Scorpio is wickedly observant, making us highly aware emotionally. We’d recommend howlite to reduce crankiness and increase tactfulness, along with snowflake obsidian to assist with spotting patterns we need to work on.

Our May Moon Magic video digs into all the details, so check it out, then read on for a summary of the other astrological aspects to look out for:

The Full Moon in Scorpio brings a nature of desire. So our goal here is to determine what we want to set our intention & focus on, or to figure out what we need to let go of.

Mercury & Venus in Gemini bring about a mental lightness & flexibility, so don’t be surprised if you think one way, but feel another. It’s common to have this split reaction during this full moon.

Luckily, Mercury opposing Saturn gives us mental durability; boosting our investigative skills. So find something you want to study externally and/or within ourselves.

Venus in Gemini is flirtatious, but be careful because the Sun in Taurus during this time provokes our possessive nature. Be aware of how you use your charm. A great focal point for this Heart Chakra meditation is the Knight of Cups from a tarot deck.

Jupiter forms a T-square with the Sun and Moon, which frees up our feelings, so be mindful of melodrama. Choose just how you want to use this Scorpio intensity with consideration.
