Season Finale: Pisces New Moon Portal 🌀 💙

Pisces New Moon Portal
 I dream.  I surrender.  I release.
Here on this Pisces New Moon we find ourselves at the end of a massive karmic cycle. On this episode, Jeff Hinshaw offers you ways in which to connect to the energy of Pisces and the New Moon.

Podcast Season Finale

Dear Cosmic Cousins,

After three and a half years of podcasting, it is with the utmost mixed feelings of gratitude and sadness that I have decided to put this sacred offering on an indefinite pause. 

Launching the podcast during the Virgo New Moon of 2017 (Virgo Sun – Virgo Moon) and closing out on the Pisces New Moon of 2021 (Pisces Sun – Pisces Moon) feels like a deep honoring and poetic close out to what has been a truly rewarding and fulfilling experience.

This decision comes with a great deal of surrender and trust in the Unknown. In order to grow in new ways, I know I need extra space to rest and reflect. This certainly isn’t a goodbye. It's very likely the podcast will continue on in new ways in the future — perhaps this Autumn I will be ready to relaunch with a whole new vision— but for now it is uncertain.  On this Pisces New Moon, it’s my hopes that we all gift ourself permission to eb and flow with the tides of our soul, even if that feels scary or unknown.

With this new space created in my life I am hoping to immerse myself in writing. There are a number of books inside me on both tarot and astrology that are ready to be birthed – and spirit is starting to get loud! So, I must heed the calling.

I am also looking forward to spending extra time bonding with my new puppy Biji Cazimi and cultivating new relationships in my life. This Pisces New Moon is reminding us all to connect with the more emotional realms of this human existence.

In addition, I am not going away – just putting a pause on podcasting. if you’d still like to learn from me in 2021, I am still offering one-on-one deep-dive astrology readings all year – and I am also hosting a monthly gathering live on Zoom called COSMIC SHIFT on the first Saturday of each month.

If you'd like to stay in touch: follow me on Instagram, and stay subscribed to my newsletter and the podcast. I will keep you up-to-date on what’s going on with me through these platforms. And it is likely I will release an episode here-and-there when I feel the call.
Again, thank you for your support. It means the world to me. It has truly been an honor to be of service for you in this way. If you are a Patreon supporter, THANK YOU so much for your generous support. Without you, the podcast would not have been possible. Your monthly donation has been put on pause for the time being, and I will be reaching out to you personally with more information in the coming weeks.

Wising for you all a magical and restful Pisces New Moon.

Jeff & Biji

Aquarius Season 2021 ⚡ – Conversation w/ Intuitive and Hellenistic Astrologer Malorine Mathurin

Aquarius Season
♒︎  January 19 – February 18, 2021 ♒︎
Happy Aquarius Season to you! For some of us this is the most Aquarian energy we will have ever experienced in the sky at one time... particularly on the Aquarius New Moon (Feb. 11) — the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Pallas, Jupiter and Saturn will all be in this Collective Fixed Air Sign of the Humanitarian. 

To make use of all this Aquarian energy, it’s highly recommended to channel your genius into a creative project or healing modality, or to commit to a structured community/collective that is focused on freedom + empowerment through nonhierarchical intellectual discussion and/or consciousness raising practices.

If you’re looking for community support right now,  I have a new monthly virtual astrology + embodiment offering I’m super stoked about:  COSMIC SHIFT.  I’m co-leading it with my friend + powerful teacher Adriana Rizzolo.  The first gathering is set for Saturday, February 6, and is all about honoring AQUARIUS.
There’s also a few spots left in the FOOLS JOURNEY — 6-month tarot ritual!  Enrollment will be closing this Monday, January 25. So if you were considering signing up, please be sure to do so this week!

Cosmic Cousins!  We are all on the precipice of some radical shifts and changes. Both Saturn and Jupiter shift into Aquarius this week.  As an Aquarius Sun/Rising, I am feeling really inspired.  I am making use of this energy in the New Year by shifting my focus toward writing – with the hopes of finishing and publishing two new books.  Because of this, I am unfortunately unable to offer mentorships or courses in 2021.  I know this may be disappointing to quite a number of you who I have been in communication with about this potential, and I do hope you understand.

However, I plan to continue to release the podcast so that I can offer you support, and I, of course, will still be offering both astrology and tarot readings. If you are hoping to work with me more regularly, I encourage you to book follow-up readings. 

If a reading doesn't call to you right now, and you value the time and energy I put into the newsletter and podcast, please consider leaving an iTunes review, sign up to become a Patreon member, or purchase a Workshop Download. This helps support me as I continue to offer my work to you and the community free of charge.  Big love to you! I am wishing for you a restful Sagittarius New Moon.                 – Jeff Hinshaw

Reproductive Justice is NOT just "a women's cause".  It is important that this statement be upgraded and inclusive of non-binary folx and trans men who also need access to uterine reproductive care. If you are interested in learning more about how childbearing affects people all across the gender spectrum,  Alice Arden (@mebooandhoneytoo) personally reached out to me and suggested we follow King Yaa on instagram @queerbirthworker. They’re content is extremely comprehensive and they have helped Alice, a trans masculine person, to better understand how birth is truly non-binary.



Gemini rules over siblings. This extends to all people, especially our Native Sisters, Brothers, and Two-Spirit Community. 
On this Gemini Full Moon, in honor of Native American Heritage Day, and in deep remembrance of the history of this land here in the United States, I have spent time familiarizing myself with Native American Youth and Family Center (@naya_pdx). They are a really important organization located in Portland, Oregon that advocate for our Native and Two-Spirit community.  

If you are looking for a way to give back at this time of year, you can check them out by clicking the above links or visiting the linktree on my instagram bio (@cosmic.cousins). If you'd like to donate to them, even a little bit can really help out.
