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.

New Moon in Pisces – Moon Magic for March 20th, 2015

Thraicie Hawkner and Heather Roan Robbins give us another episode of Moon Magic for this New Moon in the early hours of March 20th. The key thing to note for the night of the 19th, leading up to this new moon, it is time to pay attention to your dreams. You can work with lucid dreaming, or just opening up to whatever journey you have, but focus on good intent. We don’t want to let nightmares into our lives. For the entire week, it is a good time for you to tune into subtle energies.

This is a Supermoon, as well, which means the moon is closer to the earth and thus the impact is strengthened. If you have any aspects in your chart that are in the last degree of a mutible sign Pisces, Gemini, Aries or Virgo, you might notice this focus of the sun and moon energy as it moves through your chart. Find out more in the New Moon Video below, and then read the rest of the article for more information:

But wait, there’s more! Along with the New Moon, we get an eclipse, followed shortly by the Spring Equinox. The times, they are a changing.

Full Moon in Taurus: Oct 29

Full Hunter’s Moon

Taurus Full Moon

Full Moon in Taurus

October’s Moon is also known as the Travel Moon, the Dying Moon, or the Blood Moon. Traditional cultures worldwide have festivals to celebrate the October Full Moon such as:

  1. The Disirblot of Freyja, Norse Goddess. This moon marks the begining of the Winter season. On this night, great family feasts were held which featured foods sacred to the Autumn deities.
  2. The Aztecs and Toltecs celebrated The Festival of Ciuateotl, the snake woman goddess to appease the Goddess of strife, misfortune, and labor whose name means ‘the great bath of sweat’.

Taurus Full Moon Energy

Manifestation, Healing, Security

Prosperity Affirmation CandleOctober brings a serious manifestation moon; however, it also some serious security and stability points of interest. This moon in both Taurus and 2nd house means a lot of root chakra concerns, so any insecurities we have could be augmented. The thing to do is feel the feeling, and then address it. This is an ideal moon to sit down with the focused intention to shift your footing or position in areas in your life where you feel unstable, disconnected or rootless.

With the fixed Taurus moon tightly trine Pluto in Capricorn, it is the perfect time to blast open any feelings of instability or insecurity we might be dragging along from our past. This will open up the future to one of choice rather than one based on habit.

Taurus the bull is tenacious and consistently seeks security, if you combine this dig-in-your heals energy with commitment and a clear intention, whatever you begin will have sure footing and be hard to stop.

What are your emotional survival tactics? Are you reacting rather than acting? It’s a perfect  time to assess your habits and make a conscious choice to move in a different direction, especially if you need to shift from a glass half-empty to a glass not-only half-full, but overflowing. You can shift your relationship with manifest reality to one of security and abundance.  The key is to be clear, be focused, and invoke all your senses. [Read more…]
