New Moon in Aquarius: The Rebel is the Lover Who Conquers the Realms Within

New Moon in Aquarius: The Rebel is the Lover Who Conquers the Realms Within

In the words of St. Teresa of Avila, a Revolutionary for Love:

The sane know contentment,
for beauty is their lover,
and beauty is never absent
from this world.

The farther away light
is from one’s touch
the more one naturally speaks
of the need for change.

Yes, overthrow any government inside
that makes you weep.

The child blames the external
and focuses his energies there;
the warrior conquers the realms
within and becomes gifted.

Only the inspired should make
any decisions that affect the lives of many.

 

 

To You Radical Conductors of Love (My Friends!!):

The astrological birth chart is a snapshot of who you are when you took your first breath—the energetic blueprint of your inner nature, the Life you came to live, the person you are here to become.

In that birth chart of yours, the Moon is one of the doorways we walk through to access the archetypal stories of your past lives and the inner realm of your intuitive, emotional, romantic self.

However, after your birth, the Moon continues Her travels throughout the skies and into different astrological constellations (Moon in Aries, Taurus…and so on), showing you what aspects of your world may be activated right now associated with that zodiac sign (Aries relating to areas such as new adventures, the ego, our physical appearance; Taurus relating to areas such as our values, self-worth, money, beauty…and so on).

But Sister Moon is not in Aries or Taurus right now. She is in her New Moon phase in Aquarius on February 4 at 2:03 pm MST. 

As an air sign, Aquarius is friendly with the freedom-loving archetypes of the Rebel and the Wild Card, the energies of expansion, liberation and change.

And Aquarius is no stranger either to the Creative Genius and the Eccentric who provide us
 with lightning flashes of illumination and insight that spark the need for us to move right along–sometimes radically.

However, Aquarius has also been labelled a fixed air sign. The fixed nature (stable, firm, persevering, conserving) of Aquarius encourages us to persist in the dreaming, expanding and transforming of our lives, but it may also encourage us to hold on to rigid attitudes, remain stable in a mediocre job, or stay firm in pain-filled stories.

Fortunately, Aquarius is asking for an honest makeover of some part of your life, one you do not have to do alone.

If you let Her, the New Moon in Aquarius will serve as the best, truest Friend you could have in freeing yourself from any numbing, stagnation, control, insecurity, bondage, and codependence that’s containing you in a life too small for the enormity of your soul. 

In this light, consider the areas in your life that may hold you back:

the judgments you hold, the beliefs you have, the relationships you stay in, the causes you stand for and the jobs you’ve hung onto because you couldn’t imagine the risks or sacrifices that might be asked if you opened yourself up to something much more intimate, fulfilling, loving or kinder.

Your Freedom Day may include the opportunity to release addictions to or reliance on others and the ways you harm yourself physically, emotionally, or mentally.

The Aquarius part of your soul (and we’re all Aquarians at heart) cares about the energy you are vibrating at in your daily life for the simple fact that everything is energy.

Everything. 

Whether you’re feeling the promise of love or stuck in some story of hate, speaking the truth or getting carried away in a lie, each thought, feeling or word is imprinted on every particle of energy near and far—including the energy particles of our loved ones, our plants, our pets, our food, the air, earth, fire and water.

The Scientist (an Aquarian archetype) in Dr Masaru Emoto gifted us with his radical experiments that proved how the energy of our thoughts, our emotions and our words really do matter.

Dr Emoto’s team captured the shape that water crystals formed depending on the vibration of the thought or the word the person directed at the water (you can check out his groundbreaking work on the Internet or read The Hidden Messages in Water.

Imagine if you called someone a fool or told them they make you sick (or those words were said to you). Look what shape those particles take.

Imagine 70% of the water molecules that make up your physical body hearing messages that distort the beauty of who you are. 

Imagine knowing you have this supercharged power to create beauty with your words.

I love you. Thank you. Namaste. I appreciate you. You are so beautiful. 
I love you. Thank you. Namaste. I appreciate you. You are so beautiful.
I love you. Thank you. Namaste. I appreciate you. You are so beautiful. 

By being the Witness to what thoughts, feelings and words we are expressing, caring about what we say and how we feel, observing what agitates us, or noticing when we feel triggered, we can become Conductors of LoveRevolutionary Agents of Change, not only in our lives but also in others’.

By intentionally directing the energy of your good word and your kind thought, you intentionally engage in a simple yet radical act that says you’re committed to sending direct currents of Love. 

The Alchemist knows that radical transformation in our world is about alignment to these love particles that spin Spirit into Matter, the building blocks of our dreams. 

Conquer the government inside, the realms within–and be gifted–in what you will offer to the world as a Free Radical for Love.

For it is the Love that keeps all of us particles dancing together.

O’ day arise
Shine your light, the atoms are dancing
~Rumi

Always seeking to transform
in the Direct Current of Love,
Jenn

Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo: Make You Feel My Love

Full Moon and Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo: Make You Feel My Love

 

St. Teresa of Avila knew something about what it takes to make love to the Divine.

He desired me so I came close.

No one can near God unless He has
prepared a bed for
you.

A thousand souls hear His call every second,
but most everyone then looks in their life’s mirror
and says, “I am not worthy to leave this 
sadness.”

When I first hear His courting song, I too
looked at all I had done in my life

and said,

“How can I gaze into His omnipresent eyes?”

I spoke those words with all
my heart,

but then He sang again, a song even sweeter,
and when I tried to shame myself once more from his presence
God showed me His compassion and spoke a divine truth,

“I made you, dear, and all I make is perfect.
Please come close, for I
desire
you.”

January 20, 2019 – Full Moon in Leo 10:17 pm MST

To Leo, my King and my Queen:

There you are so beautiful, sitting upon your night sky throne gifted to you for a time by our mutual friend the Moon, sitting opposite the Sun who just entered into revolution-loving Aquarius showing us exactly what we need to release to set ourselves Free.

When I first started writing this Letter of Lunar Love dedicated to you, my magnetic, charming friend (after all you are one of my favourite signs in the zodiac—yes, yes, I know I say that about each one of you), it would’ve been safe enough and completely expected for me to write about some of those bright light archetypes you so proudly boast:  the Queen, the King, the Star, the Artist, the Child, and the Creator.

But when I started typing and the words were about making love, I was surprised (and I must say delighted) at what unfolded.

Oh yes, the Creatrix was activated this morning, pulling me out of bed in the cold, dark early hours and asked me to stretch for love. To challenge myself—for love. To write what I love to think and speak about.

And although I was assured I’d feel some doubt and discomfort in the process (a Libra does her utmost not to rock the boat), the trust I feel when Spirit calls the way She does through the undulating cycles of the Moon and through the love language of astrology allowed me to listen and to write. 

So here we are.

Most of us go about the business of living and never know who’s channelling your Leo energy, but to be in the presence of a person who’s administering the soul medicine of Leo Love (whether this energy is in their birth chart or not) is to understand that Leo Lovers heal others through outbursts of joy, random acts of play, and the creative force of love.

To be immersed in Leo Love is to know that anything is possible and that whatever is ailing you, life is going to be more than okay.

Would you say that’s accurate?

Your celestial performance tonight (co-starring the Full Moon and featuring a Total Lunar Eclipse) reminds me of how much purging so many of us are doing now—on every level imaginable.

Honestly, how much more must we take???

Yes, yes, I am grateful, Leo, for the cleansing and the healing. Really, I am. No, no my tone is not sarcastic–well maybe a little. 

While times have been a little rough, I truly am grateful for today as I know we can use the power of the Full Moon to release what dulls us from shining brighter than ever.

We can pray for that playful, charismatic, star power energy of yours to turn up the volume on the effects of our life work which is our love work to do.

So I’ll just come out and ask you what it is I desire most this Full Moon: to be more magnetic to the call of truer and deeper Love in all Her limitless forms…in all areas of my life.

Yes, Leo my friend, I need/we need your magnetic energy more than ever to pull the resistance to the surface, to illuminate the shadow material stuck inside, so we can show up as the Lovers that we inherently are, turning the frequency of our lovemaking way up.

In part, I am talking about romantic love, which has been on my mind and my heart lately creating an astrology course on relationships, but in particular, I’ve been thinking about the expression of sexual love within that relationship container.

I see that fine line we humans walk in our long-term relationships. You know where I’m going with this perhaps since you, Leo, rule love and love affairs.

There’s that point in the life of a relationship when the preciousness of the bond we initially knew with someone we said we’d walk hand-in-hand with is no longer at the forefront of our thoughts or at the centre of our hearts. I get how this can happen. Sometimes it’s something major that hits us—illness, death, miscarriage, accident, depression, trauma.

But sometimes it’s a thousand little choices we make in turning away from the Love that is present in human form. Sometimes Lovers drift into being roommates, forgetting the importance of sexual love in the creation and sustenance of an intimate relationship.

I know the seduction of staying numb with the old stories around relationships about how love hurts. 

But I also know the bliss of living a new story of where the Lover within calls us to new adventures in love, letting the Queen within us be seen and be adored and the King shows up to be appreciated as the Lover he knows he has the potential to be. 

I’m asking you this: How do we find our way back to one another? How do we return tosoul making love to another sacred soul?

I know you are laughing at me, my Leo friend, but I also believe that making love can heal the world.

And I’m not just talking about sex.

I’m also talking about how we show up outside of the bedroom as well– at work, in a coffee shop, at the gym, on a sidewalk.

I’m asking this Full Moon in the name of purifying for Greater Love, my brave-hearted Leo friend, to activate within those of us who desire this: 

to show up as you do, to stroll into a space in which we are sparking people’s hearts with light and with joy, making love with our words and kind gestures, laughing often and praising more.

Show us what layers need to be released of anger, grief, shame, guilt, hatred and disgust we feel for the abuses we’ve experienced at the hands of those who said they loved us—who made us scared to fall madly in love with ourselves and with one another.

Show us in some magical, serendipitous, over-the-top way that we can be healed from even the biggest hurts and love more deeply than ever before.

May we be reconnected with our Innocence, remembering how we incarnated here in this time-space reality to make love on this planet and that we agreed to heal those wounded parts and our hurting hearts so we can do just that–make love.

Light up the way for us, Leo, my lover-friend, so we can say…

I am willing to sacrifice the past hurts, the old identities and the usual ways I run from love.

I release any resistance known and unknown to making Big Love in this world.

I will reach for a blank page and let a new story be written by the creative forces of Love. It shall be a great adventure. 

Thank you for being a powerful Guide and even better Friend. Please, let’s talk more often. I need you in my life. 

Love your not-so-secret admirer,
Jenn

New Moon in Capricorn: The Friend Whose Hand I Hold

New Moon in Capricorn: The Friend Whose Hand I Hold

Dear Friends,

The Moon is our Great Friend of the night sky.

She asks if we are ready to listen.

Yes, deeply.       Intuit?

Yes, strongly.     Receive?

Yes, yes, yes.     Wholeheartedly. 

She is our guide month after lunar month, giving us her wisdom teachings based on the archetypal messages connected to each astrological sign.

This month, she wears the deep blue, velvety cloak of Capricorn (January 5 at 6:28 pm MST). And as she slips into her New Moon robe, she eases her way between the Sun and the Earth for a partial Solar Eclipse (4:34 pm).

And so the Sun’s light will be turned down in much of the planet’s night sky, letting us symbolically rest in darkness for a short time before we re-emerge with the love, the light and the energy we’ll be given for the deep inner and outer changes we will experience in 2019.

But what can stay hidden?

Love’s secret is always lifting its head

out from under the covers,

“Here I am!”

~Rumi

It is indeed a powerful time to call on the planetary teachers and these astrological events to ignite their teachings and their gifts within us.

And thank goodness, since December’s Winter Solstice, our Great Friend Capricorn has been on the scene, our overarching astrological Ally whose solid reputation is anchored in the fact that Capricorn…she knows what She’s doing.

The archetypes of the Parent, the Boss, the Leader, the Conservative, the Disciplinarian, and the Teacher, Capricorn energy is serious, stern, sober—absolutely.

Capricorn challenges us to grow up (even when we’re 50!!), showing us where our strengths, our talents and our gifts lie as well the underdeveloped, less mature aspects of our personality. 

Capricorn teaches us responsibility, disciplined action and honouring the commitments we’ve made (why hello 2019 intentions!!), showing us the cracks in the foundation, so we wisely create firmer structures and sounder systems that will serve as the tangible containers for the dreams we have

Capricorn teaches us habits we must break, the routines we need to establish and the boundaries we have to draw (again and again with bolder strokes) to realize those dreams big and small for 2019.

Tasks. Duties. Restrictions. Repetitions. Limitations. Sacrifices.

Not very sexy stuff in the world of get-rich-quick manifesting.

Until you realize that Capricorn is the very essence of deep magic. 

Yes, discipline, effort, commitment and sacrifice will be demanded of you but the payoffs are many—vast reserves of strength, power and confidence in knowing that you’ve focused your energy and built something concrete in the physical world. 

And ironically, Capricorn, that earthy, Mountain-Climber of a sign, knows that Her gig as the serious Taskmaster is up (yes, Capricorn is yin energy, the sacred feminine keeping those primarily masculine archetypes evolving too).

In fact, Capricorn’s new evolutionary path involves creating those systems and structures, routines and boundaries, which will support you in feeling safe enough to go for greater relationships and experiences rooted in sensuality, joy, love, freedom, beauty, prosperity and radiant well-being 

If the containers holding your intentions feel joy-less, freedom-less, beauty-less, love-less, then it is up to you to create ones that’ll give you more of what you’re seeking.

And within the building of these new containers (the systems, structures, habits, beliefs, practices…), you get to experiment with being disciplined in novel ways—such as creating more freedom in your life. Activate the intense Capricorn focus, yes, but lovingly and fiercely on your own creative projects.

Sacrifice—please do—but lay down the part of you who isolates, who diminishes his light or her radiance through crippling debt, who fears failure and rejection will be too painful to bear.

Befriend the Higher Self who thrives in the company of others, who delights in prosperity consciousness, who takes pride in transforming what needs to be transformed.

Although Capricorn may seem on the surface the strict Parent, Capricorn in Her benevolent role is a Wise Elder who becomes one of the best Spiritual Friends we could ever have in this lifetime, for not only do we grow up with Capricorn’s teaching stories and timely guidance, but we also grow into the person we said we would become to do the things we said we would do.

Thank you, Integrity.  

If you invite Capricorn in as an Ally, She will show up, eager to guide, excited to connect you to deeper truths about why you are here and the legacy of love you came here to leave. After all, Capricorn knows us at our deepest human levels—the stories imprinted in our skin, our hair and our bones.

She will challenge you to look at those areas in your life in which you’ve denied access—areas such as joy, abundance, freedom, sacred pleasure, intimacy, play.

She will ask, “Why did you shut those doors so long ago? For the sake of an old story you’re too afraid to let go?”

She will teach you that no one has truly ever let you down and that you’ve never truly been alone; that the people and experiences that taught you the hardest lessons were instruments of your soul’s learning and loving.

She will eagerly demonstrate to you that true support comes from a deeper, higher and wiser connection that ultimately stems from the loving Hand of your Higher Self, the God, Goddess of your understanding, Source, Creator, the Universe, the Great Sacred Mystery.

When called upon with sincerity, appreciation and love, a grander Divine Support will pour down, out and through in many magical ways—a friendly stranger with a well-pointed message, a feather found in the most unusual of places, a passage lit up in a book, a song on your playlist, an encounter with an animal guide.

We all need a little Divine Intervention from time to time so that we can see the blessings that flow when we are holding the hand of Grace.

In your New Moon ceremony this weekend and in your daily inner practice thereafter, invoke the support of the Moon, the Sun and the ancient wisdom of the archetypal Friends, and then devote some time giving gratitude to your celestial family of Allies, making your relationship with them a two-way street—a relationship that is strong, tangible and true.

The next chapter of your ever-expanding life is ready to unfold in which adventure awaits you, your love story continues, your prayers are answered and the peace that transcends all understanding begins.

Be the leader, says Capricorn. Be the light, says the Sun.  Be the love, says the Moon

To our emerging hand-in-hand
in the Great Light,

Jenn

Full Moon in Cancer: Your Beautiful Life (A Message from the Grandmothers)

Full Moon in Cancer: Your Beautiful Life (A Message from the Grandmothers)

Painting of “Grandmother Moon”
used with generous permission by
the artist Lynda Hoffman-Snodgrass
whose beautiful work you
can find here.

 

Dear Friends,

On the Eve of the Winter’s Solstice (Dec 21 at 3:23 pm MST) with its potent light-filled, timeline-shifting energy alongside the Full Moon in Cancer (Dec 22 at 10:48 am), I asked for a message from the Grandmothers as they had been calling me.

This is what I saw. This is what I heard.

Grandmother Moon arrives, hair flowing, skin radiant, eyes sparkling, heart glowing. She smiles and speaks:

See the circle we have formed around the Fire we are tending.

Come sit with us awhile. The celebration is about to begin.

We are the Weavers of the Dream you call Life, Keepers of the Garden, Holders of Wisdom Teaching, Protectors of the Hearth, and you are our children.

You think us old; (laughing) you are right. We are eternal, ancient.

You think we do not understand you, that we could not possibly know your dreams…

—the hand to hold, the lips softly kissed, the confident look of love, a body healed, a home to call your own, babies to rock, communities to build, canvases to paint, stories to tell, distant places to travel, a safe world to live.

But we do know. We are alive in each dream you hold, for your dreams are our dreams too.

It is a time of great awakening.  

Serve your soul’s intent to walk with others in peace and create in harmony.  

Love and honour your Mother Earth and all her creatures, including you, dear ones, who need to nourish yourselves before you can nourish others.  

Find the true power within that can never be taken away and empower others to do the same.

The life you are living is the answer to this question:

Who will you touch with the legacy
of love you must leave behind?

Through the inner understanding of the life you have weaved thus far, release the past.

Devote your energy to the expression of your highest truth in ways that please you and impact others.

By living in right relationship with your heart, your family, your community and your planet, you create sacred paths for this generation and generations that will follow.

Tune into your Belly Wisdom while summoning the intelligent Light of peace, compassion and kindness so you can be gently guided to the Infinite Love of the present moment of possibility.

Wipe away the tears once they’ve fallen.  Give thanks each morning for the resources Mother Earth freely gives and offer appreciation each night for the day that you have lived.

Forgive those who have lost their innocence; they have forgotten the Love that they are. All wounds can be healed through the Alchemy of Love.

Deeply listen to the children and your elders. Take care of the animals and the plants, the oceans and the skies, the Sun and the Moon.

Look for us in the clouds and the rain, in the wind and the grass, in the sunset and the sunrise. We are in your playgrounds, your offices, your parliaments and your kitchens.

(Patting my chest) Rest here inside your heart while you dream a beautiful life.

And when you are ready, let’s dance around the fire, celebrating how far you have come and how far you will go.

Maybe like me, you’ve known Grandmother Love through your family relations or from having called upon your own Inner Grandmother whose healing and wise counsel we can seek at all times.

Perhaps you feel drawn to the lineages that honour Grandmother Anna, Grandmother Moon or Grandmother Spider.

I welcome Them all.

No matter what our connection is with this great energy, the Grandmothers come at a time when the sacred seeds of emotional wisdom and healing power are needed as we ask ourselves about the dreams we wish to plant in our Winter Gardens, and the shifts in consciousness that need to take place in order for them to be fulfilled. 

The experience of being human is challenging, a constant Witness to our own and others’ suffering through our blessed sensitivity—those of us who at times feel pain like a hammer to the chest.

Yet here we are called to feel more, release more, diving into our emotions, seeking out the wisdom in the areas that are up for us right now—hearing Guidance, trusting Divine Timing, healing relationships, changing careers or moving towards radiant well-being.

Cancer the sign of the Cosmic Mother, the Healer, the Giver, the Sensitive, the Empath, and the Nurturer is penetrating our thick skin, our fast-moving mind, making us more vulnerable to the healing that is present in this Great Force of Love.

And that’s a good thing.

Instead of stopping our tears or repressing our hurts, we can breathe into the power of this sensitivity and exhale the force of our spiritual strength that we’ve gathered by moving through the heartbreak while still remaining open to love.

This Full Moon call on the Grandmothers, the Elders, the Wise Women, the Ancestors, the ones who have come before us and have left the soft footprints of their Wisdom Legacy behind to heal the wounds that have made this soul journey more challenging than it needs to be. 

Allow yourself to be replenished by the dark, quiet days of Winter and cleansed by the purifying rays of the Moonlight that will softly land you on the path of the true legacy you came here to leave and whose lives you came here to touch. 

May we all walk tenderly and wisely
the path of feeling,
the path of devotion,
the path of love,

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.

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).
