Libra + Justice

As we move closer toward election day here in the United States, this New Moon calls to mind the soul-growth for Libra – Justice. It is important when working with Libra that the desire for peace does not become just a mere concept of idealism, but rather is a principle to strive for (Cardinal Air).  In what ways are you taking action and standing up for Truth and Equality? How does Justice play a role in your life? If you are in the United States, and you are not yet registered to vote, you may still have time. Click here to learn more.

Happy Aquarius Full Moon to you!  Aquarius is a sign connected to energy and vibration.  If you look at the glyph for Aquarius you will see there are two energy waves running parallel to one another.  If there was ever a Full Moon to charge your crystals under, this is the one.  Perhaps make it part of your ritual. Let your crystals breathe and feel free. Charge them up for a full 24 hours – under the light of the Sun during the day (while the Sun is in it’s most powerful sign of Leo), and under the light of the Full Moon during the night. The Full Moon light of Aquarius holds great potential to amplify your intentions for a future of greater interconnectedness and freedom. It also holds the power to amplify the healing power of your crystals and their spiritual significance and meaning to on your healing journey. 

 

On this episode of Cosmic Cousins, we explore the invitation of the Aquarius Full Moon. Enjoy ritual, tarot connections and a guided meditation.  We also explore Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus + North Node in Taurus, and more!

In addition, enjoy a conversation with Tandy Gutierrez the founder of Unicorn Wellness – an online subscription based wellness center that offers physical exercises, energy healing, tarot reading, and astrology. In our conversation we talk about Tandy's birth chart, the Leo-Aquarius polarity, the pleasure principle, Leo's need to be seen, physical training to the rhythm of the moon’s cycles, and much more!

Leo New Moon – Mars, Uranus + North Node of Fate Conjunction in Taurus

Leo New Moon
I create.  I empower.  I will.

Each New Moon offers the opportunity to go within, to shed layers from the previous cycle, to quiet the mind and realign with intention.  With the New Moon in the sign of Leo, I invite you to pause with purpose.  As the world around us gears up for radical breakthroughs (Mars + Uranus conjunction), pressure may feel like it's building.  Whatever shifts and changes are taking place have been building momentum for sometime (North Node of Fate).  Stand your ground.  Sometimes you have to fight for what you love. Ground into your power.  Slay the inner saboteur.  Quiet the mind by placing your hands on your heart.  Bask in the light of the Sun.  Allow old versions of yourself to melt away.  Invite greater joy into your life.  Own your right to love fully and authentically with compassion and conviction. Breathe new life from the base of the spine to the top of the head.  Open yourself up to love.

Leo New Moon Questions for Reflection: How might I invite greater joy and love into my life?

Leo New Moon Affirmation: I have the right to be loved.  I have the right to love.

Capricorn Full Moon – Super Moon – Pluto Return – Ceres in Cancer

Capricorn Full Moon
I build.  I commit.  I endure.

 

On Wednesday (July 13), the moon will arrive at its closest point to the Earth for 2022, making this Full Moon a Supermoon.  In the sign of Capricorn and conjunct Pluto, this Full Moon brings an intensity of emotional awareness. Structures (both within and without) are moving through a portal of death and rebirth.  Asteroid Ceres is in Cancer in opposition to this Full Moon, encouraging the cultivation of family, intuition, and healing.  With ruling planet Saturn in Aquarius, freedom and humanitarian ideals may feel restricted and under review.  Be patient with yourself and the process.

As a balance to Cancer Season, the Capricorn Full Moon offers a practical vantage point.  If your emotions feel overwhelming, reconnect with your environment. Honor the parts of you that are hardworking and perseverant. How might you shift your awareness away from the need for recognition and more toward living in alignment with your values? What structures need to be put in place in order to ensure greater overall health for your body and the environment?  In what ways might you commit to using your public offerings to offer greater healing to the Earth?

Capricorn Full Moon Affirmation: I listen to the ancient wisdom of my work.

Capricorn Full Moon Reflections

In my birth chart I have Venus, Neptune and Juno in Capricorn in the 12th House of the Unknown.  My relationship to business and career (Capricorn) is spiritual, otherworldly and mysterious (12th House).  My process does not always follow the traditional rules of business, however I am hardworking and I consistently show up. My personal relationship to Capricorn (Collective Earth) is the commitment toward living in alignment with the planet.  Being an astrologer allows me to lessen my environmental impact, while also it gifts me the opportunity to be my own boss. This ensures that I am able to make decisions that are in alignment with my values. Every day I am grateful and humbled to be of service in this way.

One of my favorite and most rewarding ways to be of service is through offering one-on-one mentorships. This year, one of my students who completed the deep dive mentorship is the incredible Branwen Schaub.  She recently launched her astrology practice, and I highly recommend her services.  She is incredibly intuitive and insightful. Her offerings include both tarot and astrology readings.  Below you will see a breathtaking photograph of her taken on the Sagittarius Full Moon last month.

In addition, I am excited to announce that this September I will be collaborating with Taurus Ashley River, author of Tending to the Sacred.  We will be hosting an in-person Day Retreat in Portland, Oregon.  All of the details of the event and how to sign-up will be announced in my next newsletter in two weeks on the Leo New Moon (July 28).  Ashley recently posted about the Capricorn Full Moon on her instagram and I really resonated with what she wrote.  Perhaps you'll check it out.

Also, I enjoyed a recent post on aging by spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson (Marianne is a Cancer Sun with a Capricorn Moon – the same combo as the energy of this Capricorn Full Moon).  She posted a video of her from afar walking along the ocean.  The first sentence of her post read, "I took a long walk with God along the beach on my 70th birthday yesterday."  Cancer is the connection to the ocean, reflection and memory. Capricorn is the connection to aging and the long walk with God. 

I hope you are able to carve out space this Cancer season to allow for deep contemplation and rest.  If you are in need of a sacred container for reflection, it would be an absolute honor and joy to hold space for you through an astrology or tarot reading. Blessings to you on this Capricorn Full Moon.
