New Moon in Sagittarius: Dusting Off Photo Albums

New Moon in Sagittarius: Dusting Off Photo Albums

Bounteous jolliness and optimism spark up during the new moon in Sagittarius on December 7 (1:20am, CDT)!

The warmth of fire crackles as we revel in the holiday season, for better or worse. The extra fieriness in the cosmos reflects the actual fires igniting in our country. This new moon opens the heart to empathize with the suffering of others, such as those affected by that devastation.

Getting lost in a movie, a painting, a song, or a dance stirs the imagination and channels the angst of difficult times. Dream of the future, envision changes for the better.

The holiday season is filled with nostalgia. Take a stroll down memory lane. It’s a time to reminisce about days gone by. A yearning for yesterday seeps into our holiday punch bowl. Dust off the old photo albums, discovering long lost messages. A fogginess and romanticism permeates the atmosphere…

To tune into your dreams at night, try using Eye of Horus’ Lavender Dreams spray to scent your bedroom or bedsheets. It’s designed to help relax you into sleep and ensure a peaceful dream time. To ease the winter blues, bring a little warmth and sunlight into your home with Coventry Creations’ Energy and Will candles.

New Moon in Scorpio: Free Your Voice

New Moon in Scorpio: Free Your Voice

A deep and passionate new moon is in Scorpio (November 7, 10:01am, CDT). This new moon, in particular, resonates with the eclipse that occurred on August 11 of last summer. Think back to significant events of that time. There is now more fuel to turn “flashes in the pan” into something more permanent! A powerful push helps to move us toward our destination.

Themes of love, beauty, and relationships have been under the microscope since October 5. Venus has retrograded back into Libra and dialogues with game changer Uranus. What we value, whom we love, how we spend our time, and how we spend money may change. Venus and Uranus together symbolize “shattering the glass ceiling” that has oppressed minorities and women. This aspect occurs on November 6-Election Day. Our voices are not lost!

Jupiter is at its last degree in Scorpio: a celebration of the macabre and the lusty reach a nearly uncomfortable peak. Skeletons come out to dance! Secrets pop out of the closet for review.  On November 8th, Jupiter enters Sagittarius, and a jovial celebration ensues! This time of year, the veil between our world and the spirit world is thinner, almost like a sheer negligee.

To help tune into the unseen, try lighting Coventry Creations’ Ancestor candle to help you tap into wisdom from the other side. Help foster an atmosphere of awareness, especially of your loves and passions, with Shoyeido’s Emerald essence incense. For more insight, consider shuffling the Santa Muerte Tarot deck, which is dedicated to seeking answers through the patron of oppressed peoples.

October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

October New Moon in Libra: Purge and Detox

The new moon’s in lovely Libra (October 8, 10:46pm CST), which means a purging of stagnant dynamics occurs. Toxicity that’s been lurking under the surface gets a chance for release over the next month or so.

Venus’s retrograde in Scorpio, the sign of her fall, sparks a rebellion of the dark feminine. She’s busting out of constraints that have been imposed on her for too long. Socialized to be sweet, pretty, demure, and acquiescent, now her wily twin comes out of the woodwork! Defending the boundaries of women’s rights is a reaction to recent attempted transgressions against them, and this theme is part of the new moon. Betty Crocker is tearing off her apron, because she’s not baking cookies anymore!

Discomfort’s concocted in relationships, exposing sore spots that can’t be healed if we’re not aware of them. Once the hurts are revealed, we know which salve to put on them…

It’s a time to revisit past contacts we fell out with. Is a reunion of sorts in the making? The turning of the tides in the social realms is just what the doctor ordered, because it’s now fruitful for connection with others. Whom or what have we been carrying a torch for that we weren’t aware of before? Time to reignite that flame!

To help get your mojo working this new moon, consider Coventry Creation’s Truth and Justice candle. The Eye of Horus’ New Moon Oil is also an excellent aid to anyone starting a new path or undertaking new ventures. The Rosarium’s Sekhmet incense blend, which calls upon the energies of the fierce Egyptian war goddess, can also help fuel your fire during this time.
