New Moon in Aquarius – Feb 18th 2015

New Moon in Aquarius – Feb 18th 2015

This new moon is on the edge of Aquarius, and about to enter Pisces. Aquarius New Moon ImageSo this new moon is about the sense of transition at a key moment of history.

In this Aquarius New Moon Video, Eye of Horus Astrologer Heather Roan Robbins talks with Thraicie about the power and responsibility of speech and the Word. She also provides a heads up for the quick transition (11 minutes or so after the New Moon) into Aries, and all the planets getting into that sign.

Thraicie, our founder and on heckuva Tarot Reader, brings all of this down to earth, literally into the plants and dirt which correspond to all of this astrological action. Check out the video below where she lets gives you some tips on choosing incense and herbs for dream work and tumbled stones to strengthen the throat chakra, which is the center of speech.

Aquarius only lasts a few minutes, so do your dreaming and visioning while you can. First, the moon goes into Pisces, then it’s a bit of a whirlwind as on Feb 19th, Mars & Venus (Man/Woman) come together in Pisces for a one night stand and then Mars enters Aries on the 19th, Venus follows, entering Aries on the 20th. All of this male and female action in Aries means we’re looking at a kick-butt spring time about to emerge.

Take advantage of this new moon. It is our last moment to determine the vision before Aries takes over and demands action. Remember the old saying, “A vision without action is a dream, action without vision is a nightmare.” When you have both vision and action, you get transformation or creation.

Quick tip: Wear or meditate with Amethyst and Fluorite for bringing forth the positive intentions and true will and to avoid falling into negative patterns or external dictates. For more, watch the video!

Full Moon in Gemini – Dec 6 – Moon Magic Astrology

Full Moon in Gemini – Dec 6 – Moon Magic Astrology

Full Cold Moon – 14° 18′ Gemini

Full Moon Gemini Moon Magic

06:27 AM CST – December 6, 2014

The nights are becoming ever longer as the cold settles in with this Gemini Full Cold Moon this December. What to do? Well, with all the astrological influences cranking up the energy, it’s a unique time, and it is perfect for the holidays, because it’s time to party. Thraicie Hawkner and Heather Roan Robbins discuss this wild energy in the latest Moon Magic Video.

The December Full Moon is a Party Moon

It doesn’t hurt that it is right on the cusp of Friday and Saturday, and the full moon energy will carry well into Monday. But you can take party to mean more than one thing. (What did you expect from a Gemini?) The Sun is in Gemini, but the Moon is in Sagittarius so fitting everything into a bigger picture and more global view can be powerful. Take advantage of this time to party with a purpose. Connect, converse, laugh and be aware of how this is a year of change, both personal change and societal change. Get all the details in the latest moon magic video below.

Moon Magic: December 2014 Full Moon in Gemini

With all this energy in the air, your nervous system can get a little fried. Rather than just spark off in all directions, you might want to take time to ground and center your energy. Basically, connect with mama earth. Stones are perfect for this, and hematite, with all of its iron content, is the ultimate grounding stone. For a softer grounding energy, carry a jasper with you. Finally, if you tune into stones, as Thraicie said in the video, Aquamarine can help you shift your focus onto something with more meaning for you rather than just getting caught up in all the wild full moon energy all around.

New Moon In Cancer June 2014

New Moon In Cancer June 2014

With the New Moon in Cancer, we explore this water sign and the archetype of the crab. The effects of the new moon are strongest within 72 hours, but the different planetary positions carry a longer influence. Astrologer Heather Roan Robbins and Eye of Horus Founder Thraicie Hawkner discuss the current new moon and offer advice on how to mitigate challenges and maximize opportunities in this episode of Moon Magic. Heather talks about the shell and soft core of the crab, and Thraicie talks about empathy, grounding and more.

First check out the video for all the influences and astrological aspects, and what they mean. Then check out the rest of this article which highlights some of the tools which will help you work with the energy of the Cancer New Moon:

Myrrh, the Temple Incense for Boundaries

Myrrh

Myrrh Essential Oil

Myrrh is good for putting up healthy shielding and filtering type boundary.

On the Tree of Kife, Myrrh corresponds with the sphere of Binah, which is also Saturn. It is very good at form and boundaries and very solid manifestation. Some people don’t like this energy because it is so limiting, but if we are trying to set boundaries, shield and limit chaos, it is ideal. We carry a number of incenses with Myrrh as an ingredient>

Recorded use of Myrrh goes back over 4,000 years. It is a key ingredient in the ancient Egyptian Kyphi temple incense, and the ancient Greek perfume, Megaleion. It is an ingredient in a number of incense blends, and is widely recognized as one of the gifts of the Magi, and as such is one of the ingredients in Three Kings Resin Blend.

It is also a key ingredient in the Eye of Horus Herbal/resin incense blend.

Myrrh Blends well with: Frankincense, Lavender, Patchouli, Tea Tree.

Good Stones for the Cancer New Moon

Prehnite Stone

Prehnite Crystal Tumbled Stone

Prehnite Tumbled Stone approx 1-2 inch

Prehnite is a great stone for shielding and setting boundaries. It strengthens the aura and helps to distinguish the emotions which may be coming from external sources. When you are empathic, picking up on other people’s emotions, sometimes they express as if they are your own. But you need to be able to separate external sources and keep them from affecting your own balance.

With the New Moon in Cancer, even people who usually aren’t overly empathic may need a little extra help so they don’t find themselves dealing with unexpected emotions from who knows where.

Prehnite gives you that filter and shield. For long-term use, it is good for psychic work, especially for discerning what you are picking up from external sources and not just your own inner voice.

Because it is so good at sorting things out, Prehnite also enhances dreams, meditation, intuition, love, forgiveness, compassion, peace calm and prophecies.  Order from the Eye>

Desert (Polychrome) Jasper

Polychrome Jasper, Desert Jasper

Desert or Polychrome Jasper 2-3 inch palm pebbles

Sometimes shielding isn’t enough, especially if some of your own deep mysteries surface unexpectedly. How do you ground and find calm to navigate your inner ocean? We recommend Polychrome Jasper , also called Desert Jasper or Royal Savannah Jasper to bring in a positive, even happy energy. It is excellent to help keep you grounded and safe doing spiritual work. This is a great long-term addition to your altar or carry-pouch (aka medicine bag, mojo bag) to help you with those long term goals and permanent transformations. Get desert jasper for your alter or mojo bag>

Metaphysical properties of polychrome Desert Jasper:

  • Stability – Smooth out your aura
  • Balance – Brings Tranquility, Comfort and healing.
  • Grounding – Especially after shamanic journeys or astral travel

Hematite for Grounding and Protection

 Cross of Archangel Michael, Hematite for Protection

Cross of St. Michael, Hematite for Protection

If you need extra stability and protection, hematite is the ultimate grounding stone. When polished, Hematite is Black to steel or silver-grey, in it’s natural state it is brown to reddish brown, or red. This shiny gray stone is primarily ferric oxide, and ore of iron, which makes it red and relates it to fire and Mars.  Hematite will connect you to the core of the earth, you can use it to drop anchor in any storm.

We have hematite mounted in a unique talisman which includes a sigil of the Archangel Michael for added protection.

Chakra: Root or base chakra – Maladhara
Zodiac: Aries, Aquarius
Planet: Mars
Element: Fire/Earth
