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.

September New Moon in Virgo: Getting Unstuck

September New Moon in Virgo: Getting Unstuck

A new moon in Virgo (September 9, 2018, 1:01pm CST) gives perspective about what details need to be organized and ordered so that a creative vision may come to fruition. Neptune in Pisces opposing the new moon makes it a slippery one. Feeling spacey and tapping into other realms? Etherealness counterbalances the urge to compartmentalize. As you set new moon intentions, let your imagination be limitless, for there is no end or beginning with Neptune.

Spunk and sauciness color Venus’s recent entrance into Scorpio, opposite rebellious Uranus. It’s giving the middle finger to that which constrains you, tapping into some bad girl ethics which will intensify later in the autumn! Mars and Saturn in direct motion help us to breathe a sigh of relief when that which was stuck is shaken loose to move forward!

July New Moon in Cancer: Reaching Out

July New Moon in Cancer: Reaching Out

New Moon in Cancer: exact at 9:48pm, Thursday 7/12th.

Our sense of belonging becomes top priority during this New Moon. Our loyalty to family (or chosen family) will be the driving force behind every decision we make during this time. Our ability to read other people’s needs will be nearly as strong as our desire to provide for those needs. Intuitive talents will be at a peak.

The only complication is that this New Moon is in opposition to Pluto. This can easily put people into a defensive mode if they feel any sense of danger of neglect. This defensiveness is more likely to manifest as a withdrawing behavior rather than an aggressive lashing-out. It is a good time to reach out to others if you notice that they are feeling down or seem to be isolating themselves. Make sure everyone feels cared for.

And speaking of Pluto…Pluto is currently retrograde in the sign Capricorn. Pluto was last in this sign from 1762 – 1779 (American and French revolutions, etc.), and will now be in this Capricorn from 2009 – 2024. This period promises deep societal changes and new structural foundations. We are likely to see new business strategies, economic views, and governmental shifts. Any form of authority will be reassessed for its effectiveness and appropriateness. But this process might seem even rockier than necessary from April 22nd – September 30th, while Pluto is retrograde. Hang on, everybody! Take good care of one another.

For some assistance in getting through this New Moon, try Shoyeido’s “Hope” incense from their Angelic line. Robert Place’s Tarot of the Sevenfold Mystery can be a great tool for helping to see things a little clearer. For further exploration, Zenju Earthlyn Manuel’s book The Way of Tenderness is an excellent place to start.
