THE PISCES WAXING QUARTER MOON WANTS YOU TO BELIEVE IN MAGIC

Tap into your inner sorceress and work your spiritual superpowers with the Pisces Waxing Quarter Moon, says Jennifer Racioppi

Photo: Nsey Benajah

Waxing Quarter Moon :: November 26 2017 :: 12:02pm EST :: 4 degrees Pisces

Get ready for things to feel misty ..

With the Sun in the early degrees of freedom-driven fire sign Sagittarius squaring the Waxing Moon in Pisces, it’s a water-fire mixture that makes steam!

Ruled by Neptune (which is also currently in the sign of Pisces and just stationed direct on November 22nd), the Pisces Moon emphasizes emotional expansion and intuitive capacities. In a luscious trine to good luck Jupiter, this amplifies our spiritual superpowers even more.

With a minimal emphasis on earth and air (Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Libra are our only major representatives right now), things might feel heavy and wet, rather than light and free.

How to leverage this to your advantage? Read on …

>>>

:: The Sun ::
With the Sun in the early degrees of Sagittarius, we may feel called to embrace the spirit of freedom and play. However, given that Mercury, also in Sagittarius, is in his retrograde shadow, and Saturn will be leaving Sagittarius on December 19th, stay cautious and sincere.

The next few weeks will signal massive integration of profound soul truths. You want to be ready to receive (and integrate) them with a sense of ease.

:: The Moon ::
With the Moon waxing toward the Gemini Full Moon on December 3rd, it’s essential to use this next week to make progress on goals.

With the Moon so close to Neptune, and Neptune trining Jupiter, manifestation powers are amplified. Stay focused on your intention and connected to your desires. Let your intuition lead you forward; yet, stay prudent, too.

You want to make clear, conscious decisions that you’ll feel right about in the upcoming weeks while Mercury travels retrograde. Come December, the winds of change blow hard.

:: The Square::
With the Sun in Sag and the Moon in Pisces, limits and boundaries may feel blurred.

Boundaryless passion is fantastic for developing your spiritual and intuitive intelligence. Yet with Mercury Retro just around the corner, and a dearth of air and earth in the sky, make sure not to get lost in the mist. Lead from your intuitive prowess.

:: The Message ::
This Waxing Quarter Moon screams magic. Yet, it’s not unencumbered magic. It’s essential to not only stay devoted to your dreams, desires, and manifestations, but to do so with a clear sense of grounding.

With Neptune direct trining Jupiter, and the Moon in Pisces, the cosmos is expanding our spiritual capacity. Embrace the steam, but stay mindful of the potential to lose yourself in the fog.

Let your inner sorcerous lead you forward, and trust your intuition, while planting your two feet solidly on the ground.

THE 2017 SCORPIO NEW MOON WANTS YOU TO GIVE UP THE CONTROLS

The 2017 Scorpio New Moon asks us to risk the deepest dives so we can reap the reward of profound emotional truth, says Sandra Sitron.

Photo: Jill Heyer

New Moon :: November 18 2017 :: 6:24 am ET :: 26 degrees Scorpio

A mountain is moving aside. It’s creaking and squealing on a hidden mechanism to reveal a dusty trapdoor leading into the depths of the earth.

Are you ready to take a risk and travel into the unknown region of your psyche? Are you willing to be vulnerable and face the challenges of the season?

The opening of this secret passageway is a rare occurrence. And if you venture forth, you’ll go deeper than you’ve ever gone before. It may be a frightening journey, but your guides are waiting.

Pause and consider how this metaphorical journey into the depths of your psyche is showing up in your life right now. However it’s happening, the overall message of this New Moon is to trust in transformation. 

These challenges may relate to emotional sharing and release, being truly seen for who you are, sexual healing, psychological transformation, forgiveness, and empowerment. Settle into a quiet place. Find a moment to set new intentions for these Scorpio themes.

If you want to go through the secret passageway beneath the mountain, you must let go of control.

And when you’ve completely faced your fear, you’ll find hidden resources of water— a thermal hot spring of emotional truth and intuitive trust … 

>>>

New Moon inconjunct Uranus
Removing a mask.
Remove a feeling of being separate. Accept yourself for all the ways that you are different. You don’t have to wear a mask anymore. Your true self — all the beautiful and gnarly parts — can be accepted by others.

Remove the mask and allow yourself the ability to get really close to another human without being afraid that you’ll lose a part of yourself.

>>>

New Moon trine Chiron
Watching water move.
Is there a place in your body where you need to relax? Imagine a rushing waterfall in that area of your body. For example, if it’s your jaw that’s tight try to spend a few moments imagining a sparkly, dancing, glittering flow of water and air just below the surface of your skin.

It sounds simple, but this kind of visualization can help you trigger somatic healing and emotional release. Let go of tension in your physical body and that may help you release old emotions. Lean into the process of letting go.

>>>

New Moon semi-sextile Saturn
Grafting a fruit tree.
Seek an unfamiliar way that you can support yourself in this transformational time. Maybe this new, unfamiliar way is as mundane as drinking more water. Maybe it’s something deeper, like letting yourself be wrong, or admitting that you don’t have all the answers.

THE LEO WANING QUARTER MOON WANTS YOU TO GET RADICALLY REAL

Before we can harness the full possibilities of the upcoming New Moon, the Leo Waning Quarter Moon asks us to clean out our closets, and get real to get radical, says Jennifer Racioppi  …

Art: Seana Gavin

Waning Quarter Moon :: November 10 2017 :: 3:36pm EST ::  18 degrees Leo 

Between now and the 18th’s Scorpio New Moon, innovative breakthroughs abound!

One day after this Waning Quarter Moon, disciplinarian Saturn forms a perfect trine to revolutionary Uranus. As these two planets meet up for the third and final time over this past year, real, serious change becomes possible.

This juicy aspect is then followed up on the 13th by Venus, the ruler of love and beauty, colliding with good luck Jupiter in Scorpio, initiating a new cycle around love and money.

So power up and work productively with this cycle of growth as you prep for the 18th’s radically change-making New Moon …

>>>

:: The Sun ::
With the Sun moving through penetrating Scorpio, now’s the time to explore what’s holding you back. Scorpio supports taking an in-depth look within.

As the Sun squares both the North and South Nodes, it’s essential to stay humble. Take a look at how you are showing up in the world to see how (and what) you can shift. Drop your defenses and get real.

:: The Moon :: 
The Moon in playful Leo asks you to find the levity and joy that surrounds you. This Waning Quarter Moon conjoins the North Node of fate and destiny, revealing that your emotional world holds the key to your most fulfilling future. So go there, take a look within, and then elevate.

News flash: you are cosmically supported to do just that! Don’t argue with the Universe. Stay humble and flexible.

:: The Square ::
As the Moon moves through this square, you may need to embrace struggle as a path to change. Given that the Sun is in a t-square with the nodes of fate, this might not necessarily feel easy. If you stick with it and get the lessons you need to receive, you’ll be ready to open up to more significant gifts on the New Moon, and even more immediately when Saturn and Uranus trine on the 11th, and Venus and Jupiter conjunct on the 13th.

:: The Message ::
Fiery Leo in a square to Scorpio signals a time to surrender that which you no longer need. As you step into the next frontier of your success, consider what stands between you and your desired outcome, and what needs to be shed.

Doing so ensures that you’ll be confidently primed to step into the next phase of growth on the New Moon, when radical change awaits you!

Scorpio :: Scorpio Rising
Your heart center. Let your burdens slide off your shoulders. Connect to your central self. Use your physical body as the medium that helps you feel emotionally and mentally centered. It’s time to be intentional about how you’re moving through the world. There’s a process you can put in place to feel more centered. Still the mind through meditation and movement.

Sagittarius :: Sagittarius Rising
A honeycomb. The sweet nectar is hidden away in secret chambers. How can you access emotional reserves that will sustain you? What sweet surprise will be revealed when you let yourself heal? This is a quiet time to work on your innermost self. The bees are instinctively creating honey. What positive development is ready to percolate up from the depths of your subconscious mind? Look for it. Work for it. Employ your imagination.

Capricorn :: Capricorn Rising
A pirate’s hook. Look past your fear. Reach out for connection. We can be easily intimidated at the thought of putting ourselves out there. It can look quite scary. Meditate on what it means to reach to a larger community and share your message publicly. See it for what it really is — an outstretched hand. Release the fears that are attached to your ego. If you’re intimidated it’s because you’re needlessly worried about your safety. Prioritize connection.

Drinking water from a crystal clear lake. The lake is broad and the sun is dazzling atop the surface. As you drink the clean water you are replenished. This symbol relates to your vocation. Can you see that you are nourished by unending abundance? There’s no place for scarcity mindset when it comes to your work. You must make choices that are based from a subconscious understanding that you are well and supported. This deep sense of stability allows you to shine brilliantly in your work.

Pisces :: Pisces Rising
A frog and a pyramid. Transformation and stability. It’s time to go on an archaeological dig. Find out how life was lived in another time and place. Through your research, will you find a philosophy that can inspire you to grow? Get out of your head. Leave behind your fantasies and worries (by the way, worries are also fantasies). Look for a new, better way of thinking about things. Let it transform you. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. The mindset technology you are looking for has already been created. You’ll know it when you see it because it will be the thing that helps you feel grounded.

Aries :: Aries Rising
The cup is full. There is a bubbling over of liquid abundance. Your emotional cup is full. Your ability to express your love is activated. With this bounty comes shocking responsibility — you are now challenged to be a resilient container. You have up-leveled, and now you have the space to hold even more love. The challenge is that this ability opens you up to loss. Open yourself to the entire spectrum of loss and love. Nothing is permanent and everything is permanent.

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
A feather blows on the wind. A journey of lightness. Envelop a sense of ease, lightness and comfort. There’s a fresh path to take. This new way forward will help you express your tender side and a desire to be close to someone. The way to access this lightness comes by aspiring to keep a positive mindset.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
A deck of cards fanned out. Choices. Options. There are so many decisions to make that the only way to move forward is to access your intuition. Don’t hesitate. Just pick. And then pick again. You will find your way through by focusing on one thing at a time and staying in the moment.

Cancer :: Cancer Rising
A belly dancer’s hands. Self-expression can be simple and focused. It can be contained in a gesture. You can express yourself through a work of art, a ponytail, or a handwritten note. There’s room in your life for an extra flourish. An opportunity to show yourself. Creativity is about photocopying a part of your soul and showing it to the world. Do this. And have fun with it.

Squatting and giving birth. Bear down. This is your time to give birth to a new part of yourself. It may not be easy. It may be transformative. It will take all of your energy and focus.

Calibrating a thermometer. You are hoping for an accurate reading. To get a proper read-out you need to put in some effort. You need to center yourself in the facts. You need to stick to logic.

THE 2017 TAURUS FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO DIG IN

The 2017 Taurus Full Moon asks us to dig into stable soil, know our worth, and build something we believe in, says Sandra SitronArt: Angelique Perrot

Full Moon :: November 4 2017 :: 1:24 am ET :: 12 degrees Taurus

Digging in your roots like a tree. Moving the earth, moving the soil with your expansion. This is slow and steady work. The effort helps you find nourishing water below.

Stretching to feel stable. Reaching, pushing, morphing, growing… all of this movement is helping you get grounded. Helping you realize your place in the world.

You are building … 

With the Moon in Taurus opposite the Sun in Scorpio, you’re asked to explore how you build material and emotional resources. Because an opposition is naturally an intense aspect, you may feel like you have to push a little bit to forge your self-worth. This is a time to clear any limiting beliefs about your personal worth and value, so that you can easily create the life you want to have.

Where will your continuous effort take you? If you want to build something, you have to believe in the thing that you’re building and you have to believe in yourself. Your understanding of your self-worth is the underlying bedrock.

Say it loud, “I am worthy.”
Say it loud, “ You can’t shake me.”

>>>

Moon sextile Neptune
A bouquet of wildflowers.
A careful arrangement of organic beauty. Flowers represent emotions. Can you give this bouquet of wildflowers to yourself? Can you give it to someone you are forgiving?

The emotional Moon and psychic Neptune meet and offer you an easily overlooked source of power — love.

It’s easy to skim over the word love. Maybe it’s overused. Take some time to think about how being in a state of pure love can help you build.

>>>

Moon opposite Jupiter
The branches at the top of the tree.
The leaves aren’t aware that they are so far from the ground. Do everything you can do to lift your vibration. You can’t stop now. There is too much momentum. So move forward with enthusiasm.

This aspect brings an energy of expansion. Potential. What will you reach for? What is the highest height you can imagine right now? Move toward it with confidence. Build up your enthusiasm. A higher vibration is available to you, you just have to meet it halfway.

>>>

Moon trine Pluto
Wringing out a towel.
Releasing and letting go. Cleanse emotionally, mentally, and physically. Emotional release is supported. Forgiveness is possible. What if you don’t need to have control over anything? What would that open you up to?

Physically cleanse by taking a bath or exercising. Mentally cleanse through meditation, talking it out, sharing your stories, or journaling. Find every way you can to let go and release anything unnecessary so that you can build a stronger foundation.

YOUR TOTAL GUIDE TO JUPITER IN SCORPIO 2017-2018

Ready yourself for some intense deep dives, intimate collisions, and necessary transformations. Numi resident astro babes Danielle Paige, Rebecca Farrar, Frederick Steinmann, Jennifer Racioppi, and Bess Matassa help you navigate the 2017-2018 Jupiter in Scorpio cycle … Photos by Tejal Patni


October 10, 2017 :: Jupiter enters Scorpio :: 9:20am ET
November 8, 2018 :: Jupiter enters Sagittarius :: 7:38am ET

Danielle Paige
“Get out your scuba gear …” 

It’s time to take soul contracts to another level! Jupiter’s transit through Libra set the stage with relationship 101 and now you’re ready to get out your scuba gear and go deep into the heart of your inner truth … Scorpio lives to feel total intimacy with another soul, but it’s only when we develop intimacy within ourselves that we can reach this with another.

Jupiter’s grand plan to expand wants to search and discover all that it can. As such, half of this energy is yearning to open with no limits, while the other is focused diving deeper and deeper within. It’s within this polarity that passion is born … 

This transit will help us expand (Jupiter) to where our heart’s deepest desires align with our soul path (Scorpio). Because both Jupiter and Scorpio can be prone to excess at times (both like to devour in different ways), as the transit increases into 2018 you may feel an overwhelming internal need to investigate until you are blue in the face.

This will be a real test of balance, between going deep and uncovering the rhythm of your journey, yet not getting lost in the stories. As you plunge into unconscious territory, there is no beginning and no end.

It will be up to you and your boundaries to “know when to hold ‘em, know when to fold ‘em, and know when to walk away.” 

To find out more about how this will play out in your personal birth chart and to dive deeper into your soul contract, connect with Danielle on Instagram, her website, and in her private Facebook group for women.

“Birth truth from the shadows …” 

This planetary shift offers us an opportunity to truly explore our darkness and the places we prefer to hold in the shadows, both collectively and personally. Scorpio asks us to dive deep into our psyche and our soul, and Jupiter asks us to use these deep dives to propel us towards an ideal society.

It’s time to birth a new moral stance on society’s power struggles. My hope is that we can use this cycle to empower all levels of society by fully acknowledging our shadow and the damage overconsumption has caused our planet, considering universal income, and envisioning a version of society that uplifts oppressed populations.

“Extra-strength orgasms & subterranean healing … “

As the largest planet in the solar system travels through sexy Scorpio, get ready to bring your libido up a notch, reveal secrets, and touch on taboo topics.

While this will be particularly strong for Scorpio Suns, Moons, and Rising signs, no matter what your astrological makeup it’s time to embrace the depth this transit offers and come out on top.

While traveling through Scorpio, Jupiter will make a luscious trine of manifestation to Neptune, supporting gains in our spiritual practices and psychological explorations. This may manifest in the increased popularity of medicinal plant-based ceremonies—yet remain mindful of addiction, this is not the time to flirt with substance abuse of any kind.

As Jupiter aspects Pluto in Capricorn on January 15, we’ll have the tenacity to go the distance on behalf of our dreams. And later in the cycle on November 1st, the planet will encounter wounded healer Chiron in a supportive angle of manifestation.

Get ready for some subterranean healing!

“Learning to live with the art of dying …” 

By definition, growth is uncomfortable. Like plants, we have to internally or externally fight against gravity in order to break out of the ground. If we can focus on becoming a flower, we have the opportunity to harness Jupiter in Scorpio’s beneficial expansion.

With Scorpio, every transformation necessitates a death or sacrifice. If we sacrifice what is no longer needed, we can create space for something new to grow. It’s time to choose what you throw into the fire and open yourself to regeneration.

On a broader scale, as Jupiter aspects the U.S. birth chart around November 8th, there could be the opportunity for elected officials to break out of the political deadlock and do what is truly best for the country.

As Scorpio also has to do with investments, this cycle could also bring opportunities for entrepreneurs and inventors.

Sacrifice is not always feel easy, but it may feel more optimistic during this time. And if we align ourselves with higher principles and ideals we can be assured a glorious rebirth. This journey will allow us to receive more creativity, more magnetism, and more opportunities to help other people through their death and rebirth process.

“How deep is your love?”

It’s flower food season, cosmic botanists, and Jupiter in Scorpio wants you to dig your hands all the way down into the rich, dark chocolate earth and fully feast on the cycles of longing for, having, losing, and learning to love once again … 

Scorpio’s flavor of water energy is the liquid that calcifies into ice castles and amber-encrusted possessions. Yet this “fixed” sign’s highest octave of expression is the willingness to ungrip, open our palms, and let intimate collisions with our most intense desires melt us down into pure gold.

Infused with Jupiter’s swirling nomadic desert energy of freewheeling expansion, it’s a moment to take whatever you’ve been squeezing your heart around out into the high noon sun and finally let it thaw. Let it saturate the parched earth, and feed the juicy fruit salad and riotous tropical blooms that are yet to come. Know that you can absolutely handle the seasons of your life. 

Jupiter in Scorpio Mantra: “When I plunge directly into my longing, my passion purifies me.”
Theme Song: Pat Benatar’s Shadows of the Night 
Style: Bond girl meets 90s club kid. Think bronze bangles, plunging necklines, cat eyes, and luxe loungewear mixed with the Spice Girls’ ecstasy of sky-high platforms, feather boas, and neon animal prints.
Flavors: Midnight snacks and challenging sweets like rock candies, gemstone colored jello, and tasty leftovers revealed in the glow of the fridge.

THE 2017 ARIES FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO TRUST YOUR DESIRE

The 2017 Aries Full Moon asks us to gather our courage, make peace with our past, tap into our truest desires, and then leap into action, says Sandra Sitron

Photo: Sharina Mae Agellon

Full Moon :: October 5th 2017 :: 2:41 pm EST :: 12 degrees Aries

Can you trust your own desire? Take a moment to deny the complicated context of the situation at hand. Forget about the pros and cons … What do you want? 

A Full Moon offers the potential for integrating two opposites; this current cycle is about integrating “balanced reason” (Libra) and from this state of mental harmony, taking “definitive and spontaneous action” (Aries).

So lift yourself out of whatever dilemma or decision is at hand. Step back. A pearl of clarity is available. A fresh and spontaneous perspective can be yours.

And then gather your courage, draw from your confidence, and from a stable and balanced center, make your move. This is a chance to drag yourself out of whatever mental game of ping-pong you’ve been playing and take action. To take action, you need to align with what you want. To decide. Lead. Choose. 

Full Moons bring a high-energetic release that may feel like a celebration, an outburst, or both. As this Moon, Sun, and Mercury also point towards Pluto, this formation triggers deep dives into the shadow of our psyche, cathartic healing, and transformation. 

Open space to feel some old emotions that may have been blocked; those feelings may still need to energetically move through your body before they can dissolve. Release the past and welcome the future so you can move through this Full Moon in a way that’s empowered and decisive instead of unconscious and reactive.

Above all, don’t worry about what anyone else needs. Cultivate a balanced Libran mind … so that you can make the decisions you need to step closer to yourself. This gives your Aries “I am” experience an opportunity to flourish.

Your point of power lies in your ability to courageously feel what needs to be felt and to define your vision.

By doing this you are already one step ahead. You are meeting up with your future self … 

>>>

Full Moon opposite Mercury
The lightning bolt makes contact.
Zeroing in. A lot may rise to consciousness right now. Sometimes that’s overwhelming … the influx of so much awareness all at once. ZAP.

Are you feeling awake now? Are you seeing what there is to see? Is it blinding you? We are experiencing a collective awakening and at the same time, just as many people are turning a blind eye. You can’t always control your own personal state of ignorance, but you sure as heck can try to see what you haven’t been seeing.

It’s time to raise your understanding. Allow this to happen even if it means you can’t ever be exactly the same as you were before you knew. Sometimes this is a really good thing.

>>>

Full Moon square Pluto
Dipping your head under the surface of the water.
It’s time to transform. Entirely. Move into a new element. This can be shocking. This can be enlivening. This can be necessary. This can be frightening.

We all have a certain need for predictability and when we go through a transformation, that need is compromised. So remind yourself that there is predictability to transformation. And that the end result will be growth. There are stages that you move through when you experience a change—denial, bargaining, anger, grief, and acceptance. Let yourself go through these stages.

Allow the emotional movement. Embrace the space and sweetness that comes from stretching your heart open to feel your feelings fully.

The study questions below are to help you get deeper into what the 2017 Aries Full Moon means for you. Use them as journal prompts. For the most accurate reading, look to which house holds 12 degrees Aries in your chart and use the question for that house. 

Aries or Full Moon in the 1st house
If I am crystal clear about my desires, which people/projects/requests do I need to say yes to, and which ones do I need to say no to?

Taurus or Full Moon in the 12th House
What old pattern is ready to be healed?

Gemini or Full Moon in the 11th House
How much do I value the support of my friends?

Where will I go (physically or mentally) to explore and expand my horizons?

Virgo or Full Moon in the 8th House
What am I ready to release?

Libra or Full Moon in the 7th House
What would it mean to be truly diplomatic in my relationships?

Scorpio or Full Moon in the 6th House
What healthy new habits am I ready to create?

Sagittarius or Full Moon in the 5th House
What is a way that I can bring more joy into my life?

Capricorn or Full Moon in the 4th House
What will I do to help myself feel emotionally secure?

Aquarius or Full Moon in the 3rd House
Am I open to new ideas? How can I invigorate my mindset even more?

Pisces or Full Moon in the 2nd House
What do I need to do now to create a stronger base of financial security in my life?

THE CAPRICORN WAXING QUARTER MOON WANTS YOU TO GET IT DONE

Power up, astro babes. The Capricorn Waxing Quarter Moon asks you to roll up your sleeves, shake off the past, and get ready to rumble, says Jennifer Racioppi.

Art: Seana Gavin

:: Waxing Quarter Moon :: September 27 2017 :: 10:53pm EST :: 5 degrees Capricorn 

I hope you’re rested, because this week’s energy shifts are tremendous …

This Capricorn Waxing Quarter Moon activates the energy of two cardinal signs, Libra and Capricorn. Cardinal energy initiates new seasons, brings a tenacity to get things done, and helps us take a deeper look at what needs reconciliation and completion.

Now is the time to honor your need for urgency. Take a look at what’s holding you back from moving forward with your goals and desires and get into action.

In addition to this square, the planet of luck and abundance, Jupiter, makes his final opposition to the planet of change, Uranus late night on the 27th. This opposition asks us to shake free anything that feels out of alignment with our truth. And, to make it all the more interesting, Pluto, the planet of power, stations direct on the afternoon of the 28th.

All of this together? Get ready to rumble …

>>>

:: The Sun :: As the Sun travels through the early degrees of Libra, it’s time to place our attention on justice. Libra, the sign of the scales asks us to rectify what feels out of balance and pushes things in the direction of fairness. So use the cardinal influence of the Sun in Libra to get right with yourself.

:: The Moon :: With the Waxing Moon at 5 degrees of stalwart Capricorn, ambition and drive take a turn at the wheel. When the Moon travels through Capricorn, emotional needs are met with hard work, diligence, and tried and true practices. Use this influence of ambition to activate your courage and tenacity.

:: The Square ::  With the Moon waxing towards full, it’s essential to look at curveballs showing up in our life—especially as they pertain to the development and manifestation of goals. Use this Waxing Quarter Moon to evaluate where you don’t believe in your ability to achieve your desires, or where you are derailing your best efforts. Then, make a plan to overcome these potential setbacks.

:: The Message ::  Honor your desires. Honor your efforts. Don’t be shy. Stay determined. This week unleashes tremendous energy and influence. So stick with it. Look at where you are holding yourself back and reconcile it.

Remember, your desires are holy and worthy of your love and attention. Let this Capricorn Waxing Quarter Moon help you move closer to your dreams—and your goals.

Aries :: Aries Rising
Hands outstretched. Our hands communicate so much. Do you reach out to make a connection? Relationships are of extra importance now. How can you communicate in a way that is perfectly clear and non-violent? Our cultural tendency is to protect ourselves when we are in an argument, which can result in the other person being on the defensive. And if both people are on the defensive, everybody loses. What if you were to communicate with the ultimate goal of reaching out to create harmony and clear communication? How would it feel to have more peace in your life?

Taurus :: Taurus Rising
Connecting the dots. Each line that connects the dots is important. Step by step, you create an image. In the same way, it’s time for you to focus on the routines and habits that make up your day.

It’s time to refine and improve the details of your life. Get to work.

Gemini :: Gemini Rising
A drumbeat. Music can help you transcend. Focus on any of the following— art, music, creative expression, play, joy, fun. The benefit of self-expression, fun and playfulness is that it will help you reinvigorate yourself.

A nose. Use your senses to help you be in the moment. Feel into your body. Look closely at your surroundings. Smell the air. Be in the moment by practicing heightened sensory awareness. This will help you get out of your head. This is a mediation. Meditation is important for you right now because it’s time to get clear about your emotions. And being clear about your emotions requires the ability to be present.

Leo :: Leo Rising
Wagon wheels moving down the road. Keep moving along. Your patient and persistent progress is what will pay off. Don’t evaluate where you are just yet. Simply keep moving. Practice patience.

Confetti falling through the air. A celebration. You’re worth it. Is your inherent worth something you are crystal-clear about? Do you believe it’s possible to increase your self-esteem?

Do it because it can be the foundation that every other aspect of your life is built upon. Your sense of self-worth is a priority.

LIBRA SEASON 2017: A DANCE WITH DUALITY

Libra season 2017 invites us to embrace duality, and seek our highest aspirations in sacred partnership with the Cosmos herself. By Bess Matassa. Main image: DVF AW17

 

Sharpen your topiary shears and curry comb your unicorn manes, cosmic queens. Libra Season rides in regally to take back the castle, dressed in silky white satin and brandishing the sword of bejeweled justice. The zodiac’s aspirational aesthete infuses the everyday with a higher love, and shows us all how it could be when we commit to chasing the ephemeral trail of the most dazzlingly distant stars.

But as we stand on this yearly seasonal precipice between day and night, it’s time to learn how to appreciate the darkness and the light, and to grapple with the contradictions and complications of colliding with opposition. When we truly commit to communion, we risk collapsing the great divide between what’s ours and what we disavow, and sacrificing some of our crystal visions to allow others, and ourselves, to be exactly as we are.

So slip into both your lace and your leather, and saddle up your mythical creatures for the race towards the rainbow. In this precariously precious place between the confectionary clouds and the hard packed earth, we can catch the light just so.

When we commit to living this daydream together, we are brighter and more blindingly beautiful then we could ever imagine.

>>>

The keyword: Relating.

The song lyrics: Love lift us up where we belong/Where the eagles cry/On a mountain high/Far from the world below/Up where the clear winds blow – Joe Cocker, “Up Where We Belong”

Check out Bess’ Libra Season Playlist, complete with dynamic duos, romantic mashups, and vocal encounters.

The color palette: impressionistic hues and Malibu tones. Sophisticated pinks and soft grays, refined aquas and violets, whip cream whites, and camera-ready sunsets.

The style: modern monarchy meets Parisian salon. Windswept scarves, button-down blousons, bell sleeves, ruffled blazers, tights & ballet flats, casual culottes, and finely-detailed florals.

Fall 17, from left: Luisa Beccaria, Mulberry, Giambattista Valli, Zimmerman, Giambattista Valli

The scents and flavors: perfect pairings, curated bouquets, and epicurean presentations. Black and white cookies, macarons and madeleines, honey and lemon, carefully cultivated orchids, edible blooms, and small plates.

The healing: cultured evenings and high-minded musings. Wine and food pairing menus, gallery expeditions, figure drawing classes, jazz ensembles, and ballroom dancing.

THE GEMINI WANING QUARTER MOON WANTS YOU TO SLOW YOUR ROLL

While the past month’s cataclysmic cosmic shifts may have you wanting to plunge heart first into massive change, slow your roll says Jennifer Racioppi. The Gemini Waning Quarter Moon wants you to listen in for the lessons, check in with your direction, and honor the threshold before you step through the portal …

Art: Seana Gavin

:: Waning Quarter Moon :: September 13 2017 :: 2:24am EST :: 20 degrees Gemini

Listen in closely … Ideas, energy, motivation, and creativity are brewing … 

Having just completed Mercury Retrograde, we’ve seen shadows, witnessed truth, and digested reality from a multitude of differing perspectives. And while many of us are feeling the urge to jump into action and to start implementing all the lessons we’ve learned, it’s not quite time yet.

We are inching our way towards next week’s Fall Equinox, when the Sun will shift into Libra and the Earth will reach a point of equanimity, marking a balance between light and dark. But first, we have to ride out the last degrees of the Sun traveling through mutable Virgo, the Gemini Waning Quarter Moon, and a New Moon on the 19th, which ask us to assimilate the impact of the most recent cosmic events so we can launch our lives forward.

This turning point in the year marks a crucial point to check in and affirm our intended direction. And with the Gemini Waning Quarter Moon opposing Saturn, the message is to slow your roll and listen before plunging forward.

Come the next New moon and Equinox, you’ll have some clear, mature, and wise inner guidance to inform your next steps.

>>>

:: The Sun ::
With the Sun at 20 degrees of Virgo squaring Saturn—the planet of lessons, maturity, and growth—the Gemini Waning Quarter Moon has the word “ouch” written all over it.

But, the truth is, Saturn’s position to the Sun offers us the potent medicine of seeing, reconciling, and integrating wisdom. Warning: this is not the time to push forward with an agenda driven by ego. Instead, digest, integrate, and listen to your truth so you can adjust your stance and evolve.

:: The Moon ::
With the Moon in quick witted Gemini, the seduction of speed abounds. However, since this Waning Quarter Moon faces an opposition from serious Saturn, throw on the brakes. Rather than hastily moving forward, tune into Gemini’s secret superpower of *listening* instead.  

:: The Square ::
With the Sun in Virgo squaring the Moon in mutable Gemini, making a mutable T-square with Saturn, this Waning Quarter Moon brings up quite a bit to be reconciled.

The upside? Like a grain of sand transforming into an iridescent pearl inside of a mollusk, the pressure of Saturn forces you into your growth. **Pro tip: The more you lean into this, the easier it is.

:: The Message ::
Pause. This Waning Quarter Moon asks that you take time for introspection. Slow down. Look within. Think about what you need to release before plunging forward into your goals.

With a new season around the corner, it’s essential to review where you’ve been. Now’s the time to go slow, and listen, so you don’t miss any of the wisdom coming your way. In another week you’ll be ready to move forward. Until then, do your best to see and hear as much as you can.

A foreign alphabet. This alphabet is hard to interpret and you may feel like you are stretching your brain to understand.

Aquarius :: Aquarius Rising
A tractor in a field. Look at how quickly the tractor moves as it spreads the seeds throughout the field. It is efficient. It’s a funny thing to say, but maybe the tractor is “confident.” There’s no feeling or emotion blocking the tractor’s efficiency. It just does what it needs to do. It goes through the motions. You need to move into a rebirth so that you can be ready to operate on a higher level. What about this can you automate? How can you move through the steps with certainty so that you don’t get in your own way? What can you do to create more confidence within yourself?

A beautiful rosebud. Opening your heart to love. You may even need to do this in your work and in your relationships. The rose bud doesn’t hide itself— it blooms. This is your time to bloom. Heart opening is something that we can do over and over again. The more we do it, the higher our vibration becomes. Open your heart with healthy boundaries intact. This action will help you in your relationships and in your career life as well.

Aries :: Aries Rising
A pocket watch. Dignity. Carry yourself with dignity. Make sure you feel physically and intellectually “put together.” Only because it will help you feel dignified. And that’s important because in the next few months you will begin to reexamine yourself as a leader. Before you do this you want to have your personal ideals of dignity, confidence, and expertise thoroughly expressed within yourself.

A tornado. It’s time to shake things up. A sudden force knocks over the old, so that the new can be rebuilt. Do this in the areas of home/family or relationships.

Pouring liquid through a funnel. Pouring, measuring, batching. Controlling the flow. Control the flow of information in your life. Take in information and then do something with it. Put it somewhere.

The news cycle or the scrolling motion of social media can quickly become overwhelming and mind numbing. You want anything you learn right now to help you feel like you are making important connections.
