June New Moon in Gemini 2018: Explore New Ideas

Our last newsletter discussed the Full Moon, as the Sun was in the early degrees of Gemini. Now we cycle around to the New Moon, which is in the later degrees of Gemini. The theme of insatiable curiosity continues and grows even stronger. We yearn to explore and learn about the entire universe. Meeting people, traveling, reading, talking and learning are all means for us to gain new perspectives.

And speaking of Gemini…its ruling planet, Mercury, has entered the early part of Cancer. This leans our instincts more toward secure and reliable ideas. Proven techniques become more appealing than taking risks at this time, especially where it involves the security of home, family or others who are dear to us.

Recommended products for this New Moon:

Sandalwood is my favorite scent-correspondence for Mercury/Gemini, and Shoyeido has some delightful incense options. Try their “Sandalwood”, “Love”, or “Golden Pavilion” to enhance your meditations or ceremony, during this month’s New Moon.

“Happy Home” candles, from Coventry Creations, will bless your home with the very best energy.

Astrological chart for May 15th New Moon 2018

Time to prioritize your self-worth and personal values

This month’s New Moon is in Taurus on Tuesday, May 15th at 6:48 am in Minneapolis. In this article, we will explore the Astrological energies and suggest some good candles, stones and herbs for your ritual.

As you move forward and achieve goals, Taurus, the bull will help you maintain the ground you have won, so you can move forward. But you need to dig in and hold strong. Don’t lose your footing. Take steps to stabilize your finances. Surround yourself with those who are reliable and supportive and distance yourself from those who are not. Job-hunting is more likely to yield a steady job with regular income, during the influence of this new moon. Invest in quality, fine things, and even property, especially for the long-term.

Mars Works with Capricorn to Get You to Your Goal

Simultaneous to the new moon, Mars moves through the last degree of Capricorn.  This brings our drives and ambitions to a crescendo of maturity and self-discipline.  Now is the time to put any finishing touches on your plans, and fine-tune your strategies.  Accomplish any goal you’ve been working toward. Start thinking about where you want to apply your next efforts.  Capricorn helps you get things wrapped-up, so you can use the energy of this New Moon to move on to the next project. [Read more…]

New Moon in Aries, April 15, 2018

New Moon in Aries, April 15, 2018

By Thraicie Hawkner

The New Moon of April 15th is in Aries. Our key word is “dynamic”! We are apt to be more action-oriented than usual for the few days surrounding this dark moon. New Moon is always a good time to start something new, but this one is particularly prone to instigation.

Be aware that Mercury is also in Aries and has been retrograde. It will just be stationing direct, at this point. Don’t rush into anything crazy. There may still be some frustrations and hiccups. But do expect more successful forward-motion with your efforts in the days to come. Our Van Van oil, spray, and candles are designed to remedy any remaining difficulties.

Mars is still in Capricorn, as we discussed in the last newsletter. The key words are “Strategy” and “Purpose.” If we can stay focused on the goal and stay on plan, success is assured, especially with all this Aries power behind us! This week, there are also some powerful aspects that bring an emphasis on deep spirituality, awareness of use (or misuse) of power, and some serious consideration of religious beliefs and political & financial philosophies (Mars sextile Neptune and Jupiter sextile Pluto).

Shungite is a particularly good stone for this time. It is as dark as the New Moon, and helps to conduct/focus your intentions toward powerful manifestation. Consider combining it with Yarrow herb, to help overcome any fears or sense of weakness, that might be undermining your success.
