October 2021 Full Moon

This full moon is exact on Wednesday, October 20th at 10:57am ET. The moon is in Aries opposite the Libra sun, both at 27 degrees.

The cosmic mirror of this full moon is reflecting back to us our part in our lessons. It’s about being willing to acknowledge our karmic patterns that play out in relationships, or that we attribute to relationships, so that we can heal them.

It’s tempting to look at our pain or struggles and focus on something outside of ourselves. This is especially true with relationships. She lied. He cheated. They wouldn’t recognize my value, etc.

Yes! People are 100% responsible for their actions. This isn’t about excusing anyone or blaming victims.

I’m talking about owning your part in every encounter and relationship. That includes your choices, your fears, your insecurities, your needs, your gifts … everything you bring to relationships, including your expectations, fantasies, hopes, dreams, and agendas.

This full moon is an invitation to look at relationships in your life and instead of focusing on what they did or didn’t do, look at you. Look at what feelings, fears, and beliefs come up in you.

Instead of thinking about how you wish they would change, be open to owning what scares you, what hurts you, what beliefs keep you from seeing how lovable you are.

Seeing your own patterns is a huge first step in changing them. If you’re not ready to change, that’s okay. It’s okay to recognize something and not be ready to take action. The recognition is important. Too often we ignore facing truth because we aren’t ready to then take action. Be gentle with yourself and know that just being willing to see things differently is brave and valuable.

If you are ready to make a shift, the wind is at your back. You’ve got this.

Have a beautiful full moon.

September 2021 Full Moon

This full moon is exact on Monday 20 September 2021 at 7:55pm ET and this great cosmic mirror is bringing a huge opportunity this month. Huge.

I’m looking at the full moon happening at 28 degrees and the exact Jupiter Mercury trine at 23 degrees, and what this all shows is an amazing opportunity to recognize a karmic pattern that you are repeating again in this life and have a breakthrough moment where you see it, know it and you’re done.

You can stop repeating it. You can get out of the loop, jump off the wheel. Allow yourself a moment of grace where you see and do things differently.

How do you do this? It’s an opportunity to deal with regret by being so completely honest with yourself that you get it in a way you never have before. It’s like looking at yourself in the mirror and while doing so you look yourself straight in the eye. No hiding, avoiding, pretending … no guilt, no beating yourself up … none of these distractions. You are totally and wholly honest and something finally falls into place. You get it so clearly that you can finally move on and start fresh.

Having a conversation with yourself in your head is perfectly fine, though I’m going to urge you to take it a step farther. Do something to bring the thoughts into the material world for release. At a minimum, talk aloud. Have the conversation with yourself out loud so the words are spoken. You could also journal, write a letter to yourself, talk to some else, try to do something to communicate whatever feelings come up for you. You can even send me a DM and tell me what you release. However you do it, take some kind of step to move it out of you to fully acknowledge and release it.

A great intention going into this full moon is to be open to releasing repetitive karmic patterns to experience and express your highest good.

Have a beautiful full moon.

August 2021 Full Moon

This months full moon is exact on Sunday, 22 August at 8:02am ET. It’s at 29 degrees of Aquarius and Jupiter is along for the ride.

I LOVE this full moon. It feels like an invitation to look into the great cosmic mirror and see the best version of who you are. Pretty cool, right? Thing is though doing so can bring up some hard truths.

Because, if you really lean into this, you will likely face some serious self talk rooted in judging yourself. But here’s the amazing part, as you ease up on those judgments, you start to see more of what’s possible for you, and you’ll project less of those judgements out into the world so you judge others less harshly as well as yourself. Accepting yourself and accepting other people is a spiral dance, one inspires the other. They feed each other.

So the energy of this full moon feels like a launch pad. My advice is to get ready for takeoff by letting it be a time to remember the truth, remember who you really are. Notice something in you that you respect and admire and let that give you the inspiration and courage to let go of some judgment that holds you back and keeps you from realizing your aspirations.

You’re amazing. Feel it.

Have a beautiful full moon.

Blue Moons

A blue moon is the second full moon in a calendar month.

A seasonal blue moon is the third full moon of a four full moon season. Normally a season has three full moons. Every 2-3 years a season will have four and the third one is called a seasonal full moon.

A season is the period of time between a solstice and an equinox, or an equinox and a solstice. These are typically three month periods, which is why they usually have three full moons.

The next full moon is again in Aquarius and will be a seasonal full moon.

July 2021 Full Moon

Full moon 🌕 23 July 2021

Full moons are cosmic mirrors, giving us opportunities to look at ourselves in new light. This Aquarian full moon is an invitation to open yourself to universal connection and community.

How do you balance your needs with what you need to contribute to the world?

Do your friends nurture or drain you?

Do you feel you need to be perfect or project a certain mage to be accepted?

Full moons invite us to look at our feelings and see the source of them, and they remind us to invest energy in what nurtures us and release what does not.

Have a beautiful full moon.

June 2021 Full Moon

This full moon today is often called the strawberry moon or rose moon. It’s in Capricorn and is exact on Thursday (24 June 2021) at 2:40pm ET. Both the sun and moon will be at 3 degrees and aspect Jupiter. The moon will sextile Jupiter so the sun forms a trine.

I feel like this full moon is especially supportive of opportunities to see how we can communicate our vulnerability in a way that makes us feel more safe. When we fully accept ourselves it’s easier to be clear about how we feel and to express ourselves. We’re less fragile. Our emotional walls dissolve and transmute into confidence and strength, limitations become healthy boundaries and our emotions energize us into foundational self care.

This full moon is also a super moon and it’s the last one for this year. Soak up the glorious moonshine. Have a beautiful full moon.

May 2021 Full Moon

This month our full moon is a Super Flower Blood Moon. It’s also a total lunar eclipse and the sun and moon are conjunct the nodes.

Super moons happen when the moon is closest to the earth, so they look super big and spectacularly gorgeous. The blood part comes from the bit of red ring when it forms the eclipse.

The coolest part of this full moon though is the conjunction of the Gemini sun with the north node and Sagittarius moon with the south node.

This is an amazing time to free yourself and embrace who you want to be, because just as the chrysalis splits open and the butterfly emerges, you can shed your past and step fully into the present moment.

It’s okay to hold on to memories and continue to understand where you’ve been and what you’ve learned. The invitation here is to step fully into your present. To know that you can live the life you want to live and be the person you want to be while you’re healing and learning.

Our spiritual journeys aren’t linear. They include set backs, and side steps and learning lessons over and over again. There is a mystical power though in remembering that our soul’s transcend time. Our earthly lives are all connected across space and time, so let’s step out of time and experience who we really are even in the midst of all of our earthy lessons.

Allow yourself to do this. You are who you are right now. In this moment, you aren’t defined by your past or your pain, your loss or your mistake. You are the loving being you’ve always been, and in a moment of pure grace you can remember that and let it inspire you to keep moving forward with your life. When you do, you will shed something you no longer need and feel light enough to fly.

Have a beautiful full moon.

April 2021 Full Moon

The full moon on Monday night, April 26th is called the pink moon and it’s one of this years super moons. Super moons happen when the moon is closest and so they are the biggest and brightest full moons for the year.

This coming full moon happens at 7 degrees of Scorpio and I’m loving it because it opposes the sun while the sun is conjunct Uranus.

Emotional attachments to parts of ourselves, aspects of our lives and other people can shift when we least expect. We are invited to remember that change doesn’t diminish value. It just means it’s time to let go to create space fir what follows.

Have a beautiful full moon.

March 2021 Full Moon

When the moon is full, it looks fully illuminated. We look up at it and see it reflecting the brilliance of the sun and the moonlight it sends us is a softly filtered glow of light from the sun.

What I’m inviting you to do today under this Libra full moon is to shine a light on your feelings and own them. Honor them.

There may be some you want to hold on to and others you wish you didn’t have. Whatever the case, this is a good time to go to the source.

Consciously nurture the source of the good feelings, because its easy to take our health, our relationships, our abundance for granted and have that goodness slip away. Be kind to yourself and to those that come into your bubble. Feed the goodness.

There may also be some feelings you want to release, like sadness, jealousy, resentment. Take a few minutes today and be willing to own the source of those feelings as well and ask yourself what you can do to heal the part of you that’s hurting.

If you feel ready and are willing to see things differently, open your mind and heart to something you can do to address a wound at the base of feelings you don’t want.

It could include some form of forgiveness (of yourself or someone else).

It could include focusing on the good in your life, what you have versus what you feel you lack. Gratitude is a powerful change agent.

Maybe it’s owning up to doing something you’ve been wanting or needing to do. Take action to move your life forward and when you do you’ll feel more excited for others that you see moving ahead.

It’s tempting to focus on other people as the source for how we feel, yet the true source is us. It’s our mind, our desires, our fears that create our reactions so getting clarity about how we really feel guides us to multiply the joy inside us and release that which doesn’t really serve us.

Moonlight is beautiful, though it’s true source is sunlight. The moon doesn’t create its own light. Your feelings reflect who you are and what you believe. You are the source for them. Take a minute to focus on where they come from within you and it becomes easier to filter out the ones that don’t serve your best self, your highest good and to amplify, to make radiant within you the ones that do.

Have a beautiful full moon today.

February 2021 full moon

Our current full moon is at its peak in the wee hours of Saturday morning, 27 February 2021 and it forms an exact quincunx with Saturn.

Have a beautiful full moon.

This is a great time to look at your habits and routines, coping mechanisms, and ongoing commitments and see how well they still serve you. How well do they fit into your life now? Are they aligned with how you want to live and who you want to be now?

We often start doing things for good reasons, but over time we continue them on auto pilot or out of habit or some self-imposed sense of obligation. This is a great time to take inventory and let go of that which doesn’t support you.

These kinds of habits can be subtle drains on our energy by keeping us hooked into things that are not nurturing or satisfying. It’s like looking at your credit card bill and noticing that you have a recurring payment for something you don’t even use anymore. Once you see that, it’s a no brainer to cancel that subscription and stop paying for it.

So it is with how we invest our time and emotional energy. Changing or letting go doesn’t mean you were wrong before. It just means you’re tuning into the natural rhythms of your life.
