New Moon in Sagittarius: The Quest for Love

New Moon in Sagittarius: The Quest for Love

New Moon in Sagittarius
(December 7 at 12:20 am MST)

“We are travellers on a cosmic journey,
stardust, swirling and dancing

in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity.
Life is eternal.
We have stopped for a moment
to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.
This is a precious moment.
~Paulo Coehlo, The Alchemist


To My Fellow Travellers (yes, you!!): 

Sagittarius is one of the most misunderstood signs in terms of where She’s been and where She’s most certainly heading.

Yes, a person living her best Sag life is the LIFE of any party, there for the laughter, the stories, the fun and the adventure, sharing her lighthearted ways and joy for life with equally fun, easy-to-laugh, easy-to-roll Trailmates on the lookout for passion, play and adventure too.

But Sagittarius has a bigger Game to play this New Moon as this Wanderer, Gypsy, Quester energy activates within us the need to seek and to live a personal Vision that embodies Truth, Expansion, Freedom, Wisdom ways, Mastery of self, and perfect Faith—preferably with a boisterous bunch of fellow Travellers willing to play to the beat of their own glittering soul-drums.

Any takers?

That’s okay because someone comfortable with the Sag energy and with themselves is okay to go it alone when the call of the Quest is too big to ignore, ignited by an unshakeable need for deep answers to some very important questions:

Why am I here?
What is the meaning of my life?
What is my purpose?
What is my joy?

Hmmm…yes.

So why are YOU here?
What is the meaning of YOUR life?
What is YOUR purpose?
What is YOUR joy?

In the buildup to this New Moon, you may have been feeling the need to stand atop the vista in the current environment you’ve landed, wondering what you might say in response to those very questions.

You may deeply feel in that cellular memory of yours that where you are now is not where your soul longs to be.

These realizations feel painful and lonely—at first—the Divine Longing over the Divine Discontent works that way. But these times your Soul came for, a necessary part of the Quest as the longing and the discontent push you to set out and find what your expanding, evolving Vision actually entails.

The New Moon in Sag also reminds us that your Journey can unfold in joy, even in bliss, if we dare to go down that path.

But to walk along the path of Bliss, we must seek ways to accept–even trust– the Unknown, be willing to shake up anywhere that feels off or stale or heavy in search for Bigger Love and Higher Truth, asking an even more soul-stirring question to move us wide and far:

What’s the best that could happen?

Really.

In the search for the love-soaked, bliss-infused answers, we will inevitably run into roadblocks and challenges. Thankfully, the curiosity and faith of the eternally optimistic Sagittarian Traveller will ask

What possible gifts and opportunities
are in this roadblock,
underneath this bump in the road?

To help you arrive at these soul-expanding answers, you may find on your path teachers to question, ancients to call upon, intuition to tap into and faith to apply.

You may paint and write and sculpt and weave your way to the answers to the questions about “why” in the creations we give birth to.

You may look for these answers in the conversations we have with strangers, our children, our friends, our lovers, our twin souls.

Oh yes, the soul of a Sagittarian Lover is cracked wide open by the fire of a personal Vision, lit with meaning and purpose, stoked by like-souled friends immersed in mystical conversations about mystical topics:

Each morning, the second they see each other,
they open easily, telling stories and dreams and secrets,

empty of any fear or suspicious holding back.

To watch and listen to those two
is to understand how, as it’s written,
sometimes when two beings come together,
Christ becomes visible.

The mouse starts laughing out a story he hasn’t thought of
in five years, and the telling might take five years
!

There’s no blocking the speech flow-river-running
all-carrying momentum that true intimacy is.

Friend sits by Friend, and the tablets appear.
They read the mysteries

Off each other’s foreheads.
~Rumi

Soul medicine is made in this type of Love, these types of conversations.

This New Moon, if you’re feeling that longing to connect with others who long to share the love-work, then ask for the company to walk alongside you. Then when you see him or her, stretch out your arm and point to the road, This way, my love.

Be willing to receive the hand you long to touch and the words you long to hear.

May your intentions on this beautiful New Moon in Sagittarius invoke a big Vision that invites great growth, trusting wholeheartedly that the path will be revealed, the resources will appear and the people will come.

Into the safety of the Wild unknown, may we all laugh loudly, live boldly, shine brightly and love fully.

Jenn

Pssst…I’m often asked about when someone HAS to do a New or Full Moon ceremony.

My response: In traditional, linear thinking, any New Moon ritual can be carried out up to 48 hours after we enter the New Moon cycle. If you lean towards being non-linear in terms of time and space, a New Moon cycle for ANY SIGN can be done ANY DAY, ANY TIME—breathe as you set your intention to connect to the energy of that day or astrological event and ceremony away).

Full Moon in Gemini: A Channelled Message

Full Moon in Gemini: A Channelled Message

**This Lunar Love Note came through a dream I had on the eve of this Full Moon, the response to a question I had asked before sleeping: How did Gemini, this cosmic archetypal Messenger, want to express itself and what are we to release? Below is the message I received, written in italics.  This is a departure for me in how I write, but I trust in the process–I asked what to share and this is what I received. 

Dear Gemini and your Mercurial, Archetypal Tribe:

The Gemini Full Moon is here and you have something to share, I know. Of course you do, the archetype of the Communicator, the Messenger, the Storyteller, the Entertainer.

Clearly the outer world is showing us that things must change and sometimes it’s hard to know what the next wise steps are in our ascension.

It seems we’re smarter than ever—in some ways. But all this learning and technology do not seem to be bringing peace to our hearts and certainly not to this planet.

We apologize for having worked the left brain so hard. We are the Revolutionaries and the Gamechangers, the Lovers and the Lightworkers, so we will always be driven to be more and learn more.

Reason and logic of the masculine took over and we are making every effort to access the feminine right brain too. You might have noticed as we have intensified our ability to feel our emotions and express our compassion along with accessing and receiving the intuitive, multidimensional messages of the feminine brain.

We want to know how to serve and to serve well, to love and to love well, to lead and to lead well.

So many of us are hungry to know a different way to be in this world.

Sometimes our heads are so wired with thoughts that we can’t sleep, filled with confusion and frightful images that cloud our vision of the next steps to take.

Stop now, please, and listen child.

The Storyteller speaks: We tell you turn the page. Write the story anew, but still you’ll say, “We’re turning and writing as fast we can.” 

The Divine Mind whispers: Call in your Creative Muse, your inspiration for the new story. She is in the quiet space of your Heart where you’ll hear the steady beat of your deepest desires revealed in the new plot.

But many of you do not allow yourself enough time and space to know Her, to be in conversation, to reflect and daydream, to contemplate those larger questions about your bigger dreams and to deeply listen to the messages there to guide you.

If you only knew what would change in your world if you connected to your Muse every day, committing your energy to a process of creating what it is your soul seeks to experience in this lifetime, you would remember your purpose here and who you are as a Creator.

The density of this world has made you forget you are all Master Channellers in this regard. It is time to unburden yourself of all the chains, speak less and listen more, heart to heart, lay down the excuses and assume 100% responsibility for all your creations. The Gemini part of your soul seeks to be set free and witnessed in all Her light.

Your soul is limitless, boundless, eternal, whole, thereby requiring the freedom to give birth to its continual becoming in this physical reality. And while you have created and may continue to create any obligations, duties, structures and systems of your choosing, you will still search for all the ways of freedom you can experience.

And you will say, I want business to be prosperous, this amount of money in the bank, this recognition at work, this person to marry, this house on the beach, my children to be well.

The Gemini intent does not judge and is in fact an enthusiastic Witness to your preferences, but we are here to teach you how to go beyond what you know with the small mind that keeps you bound as the small self so that you can and will loosen your attachment to the boundaries of this reality and know who you are and who you have always been as the True Self.

You are awakening to greater levels and experiences of power and freedom, but within this awakening you are learning to direct your energies responsibly and to know yourself in a higher way. In waking up to higher states of consciousness, seek balance between keeping one foot on the ground and the other in the realm of Spirit.

The Muse sings: Time to open up to the superconscious abilities of the Divine Mindfor it will show you the vision of heaven here on earth where you all thrive, living in unity consciousness, in harmony with all creatures, in an abundance of creativity, love, connection, and radiant well-being.

Breathe into your desire and your personal will in expressing the truth of who you are in your unique, perfect expression of the gifts you have come to share with the world.

Tap into the magic and the power of your sexual, creative energy that when channeled is a Muse all unto her own. In relationships, you have many potential partners who may join with you in this type of soulful union in which you express your divine sexuality. In this matter, Gemini’s commitment to and understanding of relationships are evolving.

Gemini, the symbol and vibrations of the Twin, denotes the potential of a romantic relationship so powerful and soul-honouring that the person serves as both a perfect catalyst and mirror for your evolution in love and your loving service to our planet.  

Release the beliefs that you must live in the small mind who serves to protect you from change, cares only of your survival, distracts you with fears and doubts magnified each time you take a step towards your freedom. Know this: the program of fear is to be felt and released. The love in you and on this planet is gaining strength. Spend time each day breathing in the Light that is everywhere, for your soul story will shine as it must.

The Shapeshifter steps in: If you decide an old story must live in your retelling of it, then you will continue to give it life and you will learn this way too. Be willing to be transformed by your new dream claimed in the vibration of love, letting yourself be changed in order to activate and express it. Shed the skin.  

If only you knew the Power of your Spoken Word, you might consider more lovingly your motivations in the words you write and the words you speak whose vibrational signature is eternal.  

Activate the Divine Messenger within you to teach you how to wield this great power you possess in every thought, word and action as expression of your intent to create love on this planet. May you speak from the heart and tell the truth from a place of true service. May your messages be wise.

And our last words to you come from the Entertainer, the Jester, the Trickster, and the Divine Comedian who are everywhere in many different guises, inviting you to lighten up, reminding you that wisdom can also be light, playful, filled with riddles and paradoxes that reveal truth as well. Gemini is close to your inner child and is speaking to him and her right now. Play. Laugh. Delight. Wonder. Be in Awe of the light and the love. 

We end for now with this news:

Do not lose heart. The dream is real.  Ask for the Divine Intelligence with every light-filled breath you take to live it.

New Moon in Scorpio: Sex, Magick, Love and the Path of the Tantrika

New Moon in Scorpio: Sex, Magick, Love and the Path of the Tantrika

To You Lovers of the Moon, the Lovers of Light:

I may have five planets in Libra, but I came here to learn the Scorpio ways.

Love. Power. Magic. Sex. Transformation. Wholeness.

The archetypes of the Witch, the Shaman, the Healer, the Alchemist, the Lover and the Tantrika.

Who could resist Scorpio’s seductive ways?

Not I, she said.

And on this New Moon in watery, emotion-fuelled, love-is-the-path Scorpio (November 7 at 9:01 am MST), you don’t have to, as you reflect on the creative and destructive energies of Her divine design in your life.

An Initiate of Scorpio energy will learn to move to Her wild, sensual, magnetic ways, but you’ve danced with Scorpio’s shadow as well

—dark energies played out in dark experiences and relationships that were controlling, demeaning, secretive, manipulative, explosive, vengeful.

Yes, we’ve all gone through Kali-initiated, Tower-tumbling, skin-shedding initiations in which we’ve been split and stripped down, cracked and crushed, the pain so intense that we know we’ll never be the same.

And that’s the truth.  And that’s the point.

The healing touch of Scorpio in Her exalted form as Lover is to be intimate with this pain, to be transformed by it—not to drown in it, become bitter by it or lash out at others over it.

She feels it all. Fully.

And learns to let it go.

The Scorpio New Moon is beckoning us now to feel our emotions through heart-centered channels—and with soul-infused reasoning.

Through radical vulnerability and perfect self-worth, the Divine Feminine is removing her veils one ecstatic motion at a time, willingly showing the Masculine how to move with her so that their union is rooted in soul, invested in intimacy.

However, cultures global-wide still negatively view this type of energy—it’s too unstable, too erotic, too expressive, too damn emotional, some say.

Thankfully, we’re making waves so big that the lines in the sands of a crueller time are dissolving.

Desire and sensual pleasure are keys to Scorpio’s evolutionary path.

Enter the Tantrika, but not the kind you’ve read about in mainstream magazines in which orgasms and positions are the sole focus.

The Tantrika holds the energy of unconditional love and the intent of freedom, intimacy, creativity and wholeness.

Yes, you may have great sex too in a variety of positions, but the Tantrika as a path of Mastery is devoted to seeing the Divine within every one and every experience, using sexual energy for spiritual illumination and powerful manifestation.

And when we’re transformed through experiencing the bliss of knowing the True Self in everyone and everything, we may choose to express Love in physical union with another, our intense pleasure rippling throughout the world with powerful healing vibrations.

But how can that happen if the undeniable passion you feel for someone has led you to your lover’s bed, lying next to him rubbing his arm, touching her back, knowing deep within that you’re not really touching them at all?

We have donned many intricate masks designed to protect us from ever feeling hurt, those times we were rejected, violated, shamed, humiliated or cast aside. Too much scarring from emotional wounds never healed, not yet exposed. The hurt self declaring: I will be in control. I will never be rejected, violated, shamed, humiliated or cast aside again. 

We may attract those wearing sparkly, seductive masks themselves, drawing to us deeply painful relationships that’ll make us feel one way or another the emotions and false programs calling to be alchemized.

The shadow of the deceptive, hypnotic Snake-Charmer within and without.

So many ways we’ve chosen to learn as souls.

Now it’s the Lover’s turn as the Scorpio part of your soul lets Her True Nature shine brighter, asking the Lover in her many higher-self guises to take 100% responsibility for healing 100% of the wounds.

Invoke Her.

Scorpio as an archetypal Ally holds many beliefs, programs, qualities and insights that’ll show you the Magick that unleashes when Love leads the way.

Maybe you call her Witch, Goddess, Shaman, Healer, Alchemist—any one of them will do when your Higher Self is aligned and you’re operating from truth.

Thankfully, Scorpio as an archetypal path is undergoing an Evolution uniquely hers, gathering power to raise her frequency, unlocking transformation that will permanently alter how we relationship with ourselves and one another.

But to open up to these alchemical, magical Scorpio archetypes within our Divine Blueprint, we must be willing to go deep into the watery pools of our emotions—with or without a lifejacket. 

The evolutionary point is that we haven’t always been taught to swim so well while we’re immersed in situations and relationships that trigger our growth as Souls. 

Our wounded and often shattered egos have etched stories of humiliation, hurt and unforgiveness of the terrible and confusing things that’ve happened to us, compounded by the Spell we’ve been under, cast long ago. 

A Spell that caused us to forget about the Alchemists and Magicians we inherently are, the ones who wield a powerful wand within to heal the wound, to transmute the pain, to know our true worth, allowing us to experience the deepest, most powerful emotional and physical realms as a path of self-mastery.

This New Moon, through Divine Protection and Grace and the Scorpio archetypes of your choosing, dive deep into gaining awareness about a wound that needs some tending, allowing the release of the emotional weight stored inside, the one that’s felt too raw or too ugly to show. 

And thank you. Your wounds and their healing have medicine and teachings for us all. 

Witch. Magician. Alchemist. Lover. Sorceress. Tantrika.

Who could resist her magnetic, healing ways?

Not I, we said.

Deep diving (most of the time),
Love Jenn

Full Moon in Taurus: We Walk in Beauty

Full Moon in Taurus: We Walk in Beauty

“stay strong through your pain
grow flowers from it
you have helped me 
grow flowers out of mine so
bloom beautifully
dangerously
loudly
bloom softly
however you need
just bloom” 

~Rupi Kaur

To the Beauty in us All,

The story you’ve lived has brought you to this particular moment in time, a time when the accelerated energies we continue to feel have thrown many into a deep ocean of self-healing.

As it was written in the story of our collective destiny, the Divine Plan for us all, the Moon when she’s fully illuminated has the potential to unearth deep emotions in the places we haven’t touched, the spaces we haven’t yet fully felt.

The ability to tap into the energetic support of this Full Moon in grounded, earthy Taurus (10:46 am [MST] on October 24), however, allows us to feel the stability in the face of also feeling the pain.

Yes, we need to feel and transmute the pain we’ve trapped inside, a type of processing necessary when the Taurus part of our souls is here to create our version of heaven here on earth.

In light of this intent, Taurus, who is no stranger to physical labor when the archetypal Farmer and Builder are activated, has some work to do here—inner work, that is.

(Yes, even Taurus as an astrological sign and archetype is evolving).

And with this Full Moon in a short-term, relationship with freedom-seeking Uranus, there will indeed be some movement in forms of emotional triggers and physical shakeups, so we can deconstruct, maybe even destroy, the old foundation and start building anew. Have you felt them?  

Taurus is here to help. 

While the Taurus in us can become fixated on what’s being created in the external world (a beautiful home, a fit body, a healthy bank account, a dazzling career, a soulmate relationship), the same laser-sharp focus is often overlooked when it comes to creating our own Inner Sanctuary.

If you find yourself caught up in the outer world most of the time (yes, that’s pretty much all of us), Taurus, ruled by heart-centered Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, may call us to release any inner programs that prevent us from awakening to our true inner and outer Beauty.

To feel beauty, to know beauty, is difficult to write about, impossible to teach, but something so many of us strive to touch and embody.

Yes, we’re here to know beauty in the physical, but most importantly we’re here to know the Beauty that we inherently ARE.

Breathing in the Essence of Beauty during this Taurus Full Moon may remind you to walk in a way that transcends what the eye can physically see. 

When Taurus shapeshifts into her Goddess form, we are touched and inspired by the Beauty within. From this stable, nourishing place, we can then look outward and become the wise steward of what we find beautiful—a garden, a family, friendship, intimacy, divine connection, unconditional love, our True Nature.

Then the Garden of our dreams is created based on inner worth, higher values, and a wellspring of love. Taurus in this exalted form no longer invests in a small identity based on what her family says, what mass society values, or what the small self has deemed true.

This Full Moon, you might contemplate the areas in your life that do not resonate with the Taurus path and Her gift of Beauty—a crippling debt, low self-worth, a persistent addiction, an employer undervaluing your contribution, a lover who’s unkind, an experience you cannot forgive.

Taurus is the archetype of the Receiver, meaning this Full Moon we might look where we need to open ourselves up to greater receiving of inner and outer resources as we take the power back we’ve lost or given along the way, no longer wasting our time, money or talents on anyone or any situation that does not honor us or our sacred Life Plan. 

Times are changing rapidly and while slow and steady Taurus typically balks at big changes and quantum leaps, you might ask this Full Moon if and where your determination, resilience, and tenacity are masks for stubbornness, resistance to change, or tolerance of negative situations and relationships?  

Many of us deeply judge others and ultimately ourselves for having made mistakes, failing to live out the stories or the dreams we had previously held or for messing up the ones we’ve been living.

The more we commit to this process of acknowledging these judgments, these hurts, and these deep disappointments (a perfect opportunity to do some release work during this Full Moon phase), the more our inner walls will break down allowing the self-healing energies to heal us and wake us up.

And while our stories may be radically different in what we are trying to build on the inner and outer, we all have equal opportunity to know ourselves as the Designers and Artists of our own lives, laying down on the altar of Love and Truth any creations that no longer serve and start creating anew.

Our lives are to become a Masterpiece from knowing through our divine self-worth we are the Masterpiece.

May you become acutely aware on this Full Moon where it is not and have the courage to surrender your hands, your heart, your gifts, your work and your life to this becoming.

Walking (sometimes stumbling, sometimes often)

New Moon in Libra: Love’s Cautionary Tales

New Moon in Libra: Love’s Cautionary Tales

 Love’s Cautionary Evolutionary Tales

Who in your life has taught you the most difficult lessons?
Was it your mother, or your father,
or the philandering spouse or the ungrateful child?

Who taught you the hard lessons?
And you must ask them, the lessons themselves,
what they were there to teach you.
What did I learn, what did I learn, what did I learn?

~Paul Selig

Dear Friends,

You know a guy. I know a guy. You’ve had your heart broken. Me too. You’ve been cheated on? Same here. Your best friend betrayed you? Mine once said goodbye in an email consisting of two lines. 
You thought you found the One. I married and divorced a couple of…the Ones. 

Bottom line…when it comes to our most intimate of relationships, we all have stories of heartbreak, sadness, failure, and disappointment—some of them harder to admit to, let alone tell.

And while we’re in choice in the stories we share and the lessons we learn, the New Moon in Libra ruled by the Goddess Venus is stirring the relationship pot to help you contemplate those tales of love you tell. (New Moon on October 8, 2018, at 9:46 pm MST, October 9 for many of you).

Caution: Be aware of the Libran tendency to dip our toes in the safest, shallowest of waters when it comes to exploring the relationships we’ve created.

Libra whose lovestruck focus on having the dream relationship as part of a beautiful life tends to shy away from looking at the heartbreak, ugliness or messiness that we’ve had our hand in creating—intentionally or not thanks to our soul’s desire to learn and grow. 

Fortunately, as Libra would have it, we’re not doing this New Moon alone. Yes, this Libra New Moon has partnered up with an intense Venus Retrograde in Scorpio, ensuring many of us will be swimming in relationship waters deep for some weeks to come. 

The result: a new desire for a new understanding of how we can heal within us the masculine’s failure to know how to merge with the feminine’s dream of True Love.

This Game of Love we’ve been playing has tricked us into forgetting who We truly are, so we can remember the Love that we’ve always been, independent of our relationship status or any one person’s opinion.

Relationships are the great catalysts of the giant swings we take in this Game of forgetting and remembering. The deeper we love someone, often the wider the swing. 

And when our ego continues to tell the story he’s at fault, she’s to blame, he’s the One, she’s my Twin Flame, we’re tossing our brothers and sisters outside the circle of Unconditional Love.

When we’re gifted with clarity through self-discovery that our relationships are mirrors and that our biggest heartbreaks our teachers, we may examine with a little less hurt how we’ve projected our dreams and desires as well as our heartbreaks and disappointments onto the relationships that come and go—and on the ones that stay. 

Anger, hurt, shock and grief when released, transformed, and forgiven plunge us in the refreshing waters of Higher Love, calling us to a more loving relationship with ourselves. 

More Gifts: We leave behind the programs inherent in the Libra archetype of the Chameleon who surfaces when we change the colors of our preferences and our desires to blend in with those of the people we love.  

Instead, we become strong and beautiful like the Cheetah who knows we can no longer hide our spots resplendent with our Beauty and our Power as we step bravely into the light of a new day and our new worth, whispering, “I’m here, I’m here, I’m here. I see Me now”

I see You,
calls back the One who recognizes the Divine is everywhere and in everyone. 

And before you emerge from the dark side of this New Moon and the depths of this Venus Retrograde, you might bring to a lunar ceremony any disappointments you’ve felt in your relationships—partners, lovers, parents, coworkers, friends—the ones that still hurt, whose story still lingers.

To be Masters in Love (as Libra is and we all are), we must always be the curious student, pushing the relationship envelope when it comes to the no-fault agreements that Libra holds in matters of the heart.

As Libra with her Scales of Balance and Divine Justice sees ALL sides, this New Moon…

…can you let go of any projections you’ve placed on a relationship and allow yourself to be shown why that person came into your life in the first place?

…are you willing to believe that each one of us is walking on a path of Love regardless of the detours some have taken or we have judged them to take?

How are we to ever know the direction a soul agreed to take, the set of lessons she or he signed up to learn apart from our relationship with them?

Maybe a co-worker’s soul job was to push you to speak your truth, a friend helped you create stronger boundaries, an ex-lover taught you to see where your worth was lacking or to see your beauty beyond their perception. 

We’re always free to align to whatever story we wish to tell about a lover, a partner, or a friend who fell short of the Divine Ideal.

However, if you’re ready to put back all of those you’ve ever loved into the circle of Divine Love where we’re all standing anyway, the opportunity exists to transform the lower story through the Beauty and the Heart Wisdom that Libra is here to teach the world.

In this pursuit, may we be brave, dive deep and be willing to resurface with the New Love Story where the masculine and feminine finally merge and Lover and the Beloved reunite–just how the story was destined to unfold all along.

Living in the sometimes
      wavy sea of Libra Love,
Jenn
