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.

September 2021 New Moon

The new moon is exact on 6 September 2021 at 8:52pm ET. It’s happening at 14 degrees of Virgo ♍️ and will exactly trine Uranus at 14 degrees of Taurus ♉️

What a great opportunity to surprise yourself or embrace unexpected support. Opportunities may come in ways you haven’t imagined, but have great value. Be open to seeing yourself and others differently.

New moons are excellent opportunities for emotional self-acceptance and this one may do so in an unusual way. I hope it does.

Have a beautiful new 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.

August 2021 New Moon

This new moon is happening exact Sunday morning 9:50am ET at 16 degrees of Leo and forms a square to Uranus.

My favorite thing about new moons is the opportunity for deeper self-acceptance that comes with a new moon. This particular one brings to mind the African Proverb: If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.

It comes to mind, because I feel that this new moon is asking us to take a deeper look at both how we shine on our own and how we engage with community.

Consider that we need to support the greater good while staying connected to our own joy and purpose. We need to show up for others and be open to receiving support from our communities. We each have a unique contribution to make in this world and it is amplified when we remember we are all connected.

This is a great time to ask yourself what you want to share with the world and what kind of support you need.

Be willing to shine.

Be willing to ask for what you need.

Have a beautiful new 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.

July 2021 New Moon

This new moon (9 July 2021 at 9:17pm ET) at 18 degrees of Cancer is square Neptune and comes with a Venus/Mars conjunction nearly in perfect parallel to the new moon. New moons are the start of the lunar cycle and are great for setting an intention and starting something. My favorite thing about them though is the opportunity they give us to deepen our self-acceptance.

Looking at the sky map for this one, it feels like this new moon is an especially good opportunity for some radical self-acceptance in the form of emotionally accepting and honoring who we really are rather than feeding the idealized image of ourselves we hold in our heads.

When we do this, when we nurture our true self, we unlock a new level of self-acceptance that propels us to our best life. The clearer we are about who we are, the more we live in alignment with our best self. We get into the flow of our highest good. Our energy is powerful and loving, and how we live reflects what we value.

Have a beautiful new 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.

June 2021 New Moon

The Gemini new moon happens 10 June 2021 and it’s also an annular solar eclipse (partial eclipse). We have a spectacular opportunity for increased self-acceptance and to better understand ourselves.

Own your feelings without judging them or yourself for having them. When you do you’ll find they are illuminating teachers.

Take care of yourself the way you would someone precious to you, including saying kind things to yourself. This is a great time to create positive self talk. Finish this sentence in a living way, “I’m …” and periodically repeat it to yourself.

I often gave my mom flowers and when I saw these today, I thought about her. Flowers pretty much always make me think of Mom, so I bought them for myself. She would have loved them, and I felt her joy as I put them in water.

Let your feelings blossom. 💗🌸

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.
