Full Moon // April 19, 2019 // 7:12 am EDT // 29 degrees Libra

Rose bushes tantalize with sweet smells and bright colors. Underneath the surface are an army of bloodthirsty thorns.

Visualize this lunation as if it represents the diverse ecosystem of a rose bush in bloom. Many pathways available, many roses to be smelled, many insects, and small animals to encounter. There’s a headiness as the perfume intoxicates, and a pain that lingers when you are pricked. You can have the best time revealing in the beauty or you can get stuck in the thorns.

On Friday April 19th there is the second Libra Full Moon of 2019. This one is asking us to get it right. There’s not much time to waste. It’s time to spark the flame of your desire, go for it, and bloom big! That’s what you’ve been working on this Aries season, even though part of the time the process was foggy, slippery, and subconscious.

And this fiery evolution of the self has been punctuated by the need to be clear, communicative and reach toward another person in diplomatic action. You’ve been asked to set boundaries that help you be more of yourself, alone and in partnership. That’s the thorny truth of what this pair of Libra Full Moons are asking you to do.

The rose is the perfect metaphor because it is peaceful and beautiful, like the Libra archetype. But it is also clear about its boundaries, the way both Libra and Aries must be to create truly balanced partnership. The rose is also the symbol for the open heart, and to be truly open-hearted you must have pointy thorns to defend yourself. That saves you energy and makes openness safe and sustainable.

The overall message of this Full Moon is to work on your self awareness so that you can communicate and enjoy both individuality and balanced partnership.

I’ll be honest, the delivery of this message is not super gentle. This Full Moon might try your patience. It might ask you to find a new path through the thorny brush. You might get some scratches. But it’s all worth it if it helps you practice self-awareness.

During this lunation there is a lot of pressure. At its best, this pressure will ask you to change. The way to handle it is to be consciously open to a mental, spiritual, and even physical upgrade. Ask for a fresh perspective. As the Sun transits close to Uranus, this upgrade might come through sometime next week.

If you are subconsciously afraid and not truly open to change, you will just feel the pressure of the grand cross that’s formed between the Nodal axis, Pluto, Saturn, the Sun, and the Moon. That pressure invites regression to old behaviors that don’t serve you anymore. It might feel majorly limiting and frustrating.

Being open to change is a state of mind.

At this time, any old patterns will catch you up in the briar patch of thorns. You need new perspective and change is supported. Meanwhile, true expansion is likely with a supportive assist by Jupiter. Jupiter is your cheerleader, reminding you that …

-You can find a new way of saying yes to who you are and what you need.

-You are ripe to open up to another person and communicate your truth.

-The old way is ending and the structure for a new way is being created.

Revel in the fact that life in the rose bush is far from boring. You are under pressure, and it might hurt a little, but the chance to blossom and show your truth has never been so vibrant!

THE 2019 ARIES NEW MOON WANTS YOU TO WAKE UP

The 2019 Aries New Moon is turning the ignition on our most inspired intentions. Use it to spark up a whole new phase, says Sandy Sitron

Photo: Anderson Rian

New Moon // April 05 2019 // 4:52 am EDT // 15 degrees Aries

You can’t see this New Moon, but it will be your vehicle. It is as if you are turning the key in the ignition for the first time.

Now you get to hear the engine turn over.

You get a spark.

What do you want to spark in your life?

What are you ready to turn over?

What part of you is coming to life?

On Friday April 5th at 4:52 am EDT, we have a New Moon in Aries. At any New Moon, the Moon has retreated into the shadows. It doesn’t reflect light outwardly. This is a quiet time to retreat within and reflect on your internal process.

The Sun and Moon are lined up in the first sign of the zodiac. Aries is the sign of action and being. Aries energy is not aligned with thinking, reflecting, and analyzing. Aries wants to drive, to spark, to act, to express. Creativity and spontaneity are what feel good and work best during Aries season. 

So, at this is a quiet and inwardly reflective New Moon, how can you take all this promise of inspired action, and plant it like a seed within yourself?

This is the time to set intentions for how you want to be, act, and do. It is truly a fresh start. Begin this process in your imagination. Write down your new goals, commitments, and dreams and then give them to the Moon. How do you want to live? 

With the 2019 Aries New Moon making a square to Saturn, notice how you might tend to limit these dreams. Limiting your goals to what is “practical” is not going to help you ignite! A fire doesn’t analyze and plan as it burns. It simply consumes the material it has access to and dances as wildly as it can.

The energy of this New Moon feels a little irresponsible. But the square to Saturn says tells us that restraint is necessary. Integrate this contradiction is a way that works for you.

One way could be to set intentions that are based in the concepts of Love and Action. Let these tenets guide you, and you will be doing the best you can for yourself and others.

Because this is a fiery and action-oriented New Moon, it’s important to remember that the seeds of our intentions cannot only be planted in the mind. The mind is too dry to germinate to new life. Your intentions must take root in your heart. You have to feel your intentions, and hold them, and imagine yourself living them.

Warm them up and incubate them in the fires of this 2019 Aries New Moon.

Set intentions for how you want to live. 

Over the past weeks, you’ve had so much time to drift and dream. At times, with the Sun, Mercury, and Neptune in Pisces, you may even have felt as if you were trapped in a murky, muddy puddle, unable to truly move forward.

It could still feel like you are suspended in an extended sleep, but look more closely. Something is stirring. Like a baby waking up, this awakening may happen slowly. A shift of body weight. A stretch and a sneeze. Finally, once consciousness has fully arrived, a scream!

There you are, stretching, slowly awakening to this new beginning. Allow your own wild yell be a way to you remind yourself you are alive.

And now that you are awake, out all the energy you’ve cultivated during your slumber into getting this new phase going. Power up your being with intentions rooted in Love and Action. Turn the key in the ignition, then put your foot on the gas.

Dry crunchy cereal. The kind that cuts the roof of your mouth, just enough to be uncomfortable. But you keep eating anyway. You need to do something healthy for yourself. You need to figure out what is really going to work for your body, for your community and for your world.

You may be a little uncomfortable in the process. But that doesn’t mean you should avoid the task at hand. Find sweetness where you can, and keep chewing. Keep doing the work you need to do. Eventually you’ll see the positive changes take shape. And it will all be worth it.

WORK WITH SATURN TO TAME YOUR INNER CRITIC

How to turn your Inner Critic into your inner motivational coach? Learn to work with your Saturn placement, says Sandy Sitron

Photo: David Menidrey

Each of us has an Inner Critic. A little voice in our head who tells us what we need to do different or better. Some of us have a REALLY LOUD Inner Critic. Some of us learn to turn the volume down over time, using tools like yoga, meditation, and self-compassion practice.

And we can also use astrology, where the the Inner Critic archetype is ruled by the planet Saturn.

This means that the placement of Saturn in our birth charts, shows the nature of our Inner Critic, the tone of its voice, and the area of life where we’re most likely to feel most harassed by it. Depending on how we’re feeling, this same Saturn energy can also shows up the Teacher, the Life Coach, or the Mentor. Can you see how, actually, the Inner Critic shares an energetic “tone” with these more “positive” archetypes?

The Inner Critic is one of the more difficult Saturn archetypes to welcome in (an in astrology, the invitation is to accept and forgive ALL parts of our Self!). But considering how shitty a negative inner dialogue can make us feel, let alone prevent us from taking risks on following our dreams, and asking for what we’re worth, it’s also one of the most important Saturn archetypes to learn to work with effectively. (Check out my FREE webinar on April 5 2019 for a live lesson on this!)

But first, consider: Do you know what I mean when I talk about this Inner Critic voice? Can you imagine what yours sounds like? 

As I’ve been writing this post, my Inner Critic has been talking to me. Before I left the house today, my Inner Critic was chattering about my hair and quantifying the amount of dust piling up on the lampshades in my home.

Even if you’re reading this first thing in the morning, chances are your Inner Critic has already been pointing a few of your “shortcomings” out to you, too. You forgot to send that email. You sent it, but wish you’d worded it better. You don’t call your mom often enough. You ate all the fries last night. UGH!

Is our Inner Critic helping us? Believe it or not, this is their original intent. You see, our Inner Critic only wants to make sure that we belong. That we’re socially acceptable. That we don’t say anything confusing, incorrect, stupid, or hurtful. It wants us not to miss out on any of the love! But I’m not psyched about this particular brand of help, because it can easily contribute to anxiety and depression.

So, where did this Inner Critic come from?

Like most subconscious programming, this archetype develops during early childhood. When we are kids our parents/teachers/family/community members/religious leaders try to train us so that we fit in, look good, are kind, have discipline, and will experience success in life. In doing this, even the most gentle caretakers may (often unconsciously) encourage us to edit who we are in one way or another. It’s pretty much unavoidable.

For a kid, this training can be internalized (again, unconsciously) as “I am not acceptable as I am.” We internalize this voice so that we can fit in, be loved, and succeed. We begin to police ourselves.

So what does this have to do with Saturn?!

When I’m looking at a client’s chart to help them with the topic of self-criticism, I always look to the Saturn sign and placement for clues. Saturn is archetype that wants us to succeed in the real world. As mentioned, in the highest evolution of this energy, Saturn can be the Coach, Teacher or Mentor. The more challenging form of this energy is the Inner Critic. It is normal and healthy to experience all these expressions of Saturnian energy.

And, by simply learning to raise your awareness of when the tone has flipped, you can turn the volume down on your Inner Critic, and raise the volume up on your Inner Teacher. One way to do this is to simply talk to Saturn. Here’s how:

  • Close your eyes and Imagine that you’re sitting in a room with your Saturn or your Inner Critic (use whichever term you prefer).
  • Start to ask some questions. Ask Saturn what they are trying to help you with right now.
  • Listen for the answer.
  • Thank them for her help.
  • Ask if there’s another way they can try to communicate this information.
  • Now explain to them how you would like your relationship to change.
  • Thank them and say goodbye for now.

You can book a meeting (Saturn loves structure!) with your Saturn/Inner Critic whenever you want to tone down anxious thinking or get out of a funk. The more you have these conversations with your Saturn/Inner Critic, the more you can turn the volume down on self-flagellation and UP on self-motivation!

It’s been a soggy and emotional run and now you are here to light your own fire. So that you can get things done. Don’t worry about what you’ll do or how you’ll do it. Confidence is learned through action. So go. Illuminate your path as you fly.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Wreath of wallflowers.
It’s easy to feel uncertain and hang back like a wallflower. But that won’t do. You are meant to learn from others and maybe even be a thought leader. It’s easier to weave your wallflower into a wreath if you come from a place of curiosity instead of judgement. There’s always something new to learn — let that idea lead you into exciting new social connections.

A sprouting seed.
When you release the past, it’s easier to open up to the future. You are not a carbon copy of yesterday. You are so much more. You have the power to make your life what you want it it be. See today as a new beginning. See yourself as a seed, sprouting for the first time. If you’ve never sprouted before, there’s nothing there to judge. What kind of plant will you become?

Libra or Libra Rising
The rose has thorns.
Make sure you’re ignoring what you need to ignore. Are you putting your attention on something superfluous? You only have so much time and attention. Make it count.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Self-massage.
You can give yourself a massage, you just need to set aside the time. Focus on healing and attending to your physical body. Creating self-care practices will make you a role model for others. Take good care of yourself and you’ll be better able to be of service. You may think you’ve heard this message before, but this week it’s especially important.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Racecar.
A racecar drives in a circle. It’s not complicated, but the other cars on the track make the sport difficult. You need to follow your own path, but there are many disruptions. Does this stoke your fires of creativity or make you want to shut down? Remember your goal. Put blinders on and drive right toward it. That will help you feel creative, free and directed.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Generations.
You are feeling many emotions and some of these emotions are ancient. Who in your family originated this feeling? If you can’t tap into the feelings directly, you’ll feel antsy. Just let yourself imagine the source of the emotions. The emotional release can power up your jet engines and help you feel inspired to achieve.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
A ladder.
The direction you need to go is up. Up for more mental perspective. If you find yourself grinding on some thoughts or ideas that are stressing you out, climb. Get on the ladder and get your head out of the mundane and into something more inspiring. There is always something to learn that can help you reframe. Reach for a new way of thinking.

Imaginary palace.
You can live in a palace at any time. It exists in your imagination. There are always many stories that you can tell yourself. Some stories are worries and some are dreams. Which ones are safer? Your answer might tell you a lot about the state of mind that you feel most comfortable inhabiting. Remember that security is a human need. And it is always imagined.

THE MARCH 2019 LIBRA FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO GET MOVING

The first 2019 Libra Full Moon brings a moment of forward motion on your mission to align more closely with your Self, says Sandy Sitron

Photo: JR Korpa

Full Moon // March 20 2019 // 9:45 pm EDT // 0 degrees Libra

Climbing and climbing. You are paving your own way up the mountain. The sun beats down and reminds you that you have skin. Your exhalations are heavy as you ascend.

On March 20, we have the first 2019 Libra Full Moon (there are two this year). It occurs as the gate opens to Aries season and we step into an astrological New Year with the Vernal Equinox. This 2019 Libra Full Moon is taking you on a solo hike. You are blazing your trail, healing your wounds, and working with your inner rebel, all the while seeking mental clarity and balance.

This hike is a metaphor for any place you are taking action in your life. On some level, the sheer effort you are taking on reminds you of your life force. Your life force is how you “do,” “act,” and “be,” without impacting anyone else. During Aries season, this translates to: “I climbed a mountain, I am alive!”

Where are you taking action in your life right now? This is the path of your ascension. Can you let yourself just “do” without judging your own actions? A part of you needs the freedom to simply make it happen. So take a chance. It’s right there. Get moving.

It seems peaceful enough on this journey, but there are secretive shadows along the edges of the trail. You may find yourself wondering: who is hiding out there in the nooks and crannies? What is going to leap out and attack me?But the real question is: what has been hiding out on the inside? During this Full Moon in Libra, past wounds and insecurities may rise to the surface.

You can’t control what’s triggered, but you can soothe the source. Use your memory to travel back in time to the small child who felt unsure and afraid. We all harbor ancient fears that rise up here and there. Comfort yourself with words of love and encouragement as you climb.

Now, you reach the top of the mountain. Notice the clean, cool air. You’ve always known this is what you were aiming for—and now that you’re here, it’s time to cultivate an equanimous state of mind. Meditate. Give gratitude for the efforts and actions that brought you here. Focus on your breath. Create your own inner peace.

Meditation is so key at this time, as your goal now is to stabilize. To do this, simply stand on the balance beam and forget to ask yourself if you’re balancing.

So, now you’re settled into meditation at the top of your own mountain. The climb has been challenging. The dangers along the path have been faced. But it was all an act of self-expression that has led you back to yourself. Back to your own crystalline clarity. Your moment of oneness and balance with all that you are.

A Libra Full Moon is technically supposed to be about relationship. And it will be. But make this moment, now, about honing your relationship with yourself. You are dealing with your old scary monsters. You are taking the actions that make you feel the most alive. This is how you will find inner balance and show up authentically in relationship to others.

Moon opposite Chiron
The secretive shadows alongside the trail. Will something jump out?
The old triggers get activated. Notice that they are the same ones, always. And that if you run toward them instead of away, they become much less scary. This 2019 Libra Full Moon brings a chance to tend to your old wounds. To go deep, down, and under. To the past. To the source. To show up for who you were then and to forgive yourself.

This is deep inner work and no one should explore these caverns without a buddy or at least a harness. You’ve got options, so find the support you need. And if you tangle toes with someone who’s avoiding the deep work, but who is getting triggered and acting out, you’ll at least have a frame of reference for what’s going on.

Moon inconjunct Uranus
Driving a flying saucer.
Do you know how to work this thing? The controls are foreign and the starship has unearthly functions. Your emotions might be like the flying saucer at this 2019 Libra Full Moon. Normally you have a pretty good sense of how your feelings work. But now you’re traveling in another dimension.

You’re being asked to get used to a new way of navigating emotional territory. It might feel out of control at first, but just keep trying. Even if you get frustrated. Eventually you’ll push enough buttons that you figure out how to drive your ship forward at warp speed, and from there, everything will become possible.

Aries or Aries Rising
A tugboat. A tugboat pulls along another boat. It doesn’t need to check in with the other boat, it just needs to keep charging forward until it reaches its destination. Is this how you’re viewing partnership? Are you the force, while the other person is following in your wake? Check in and make a decision on whether or not this dynamic feels truly comfortable. Adjustments are possible and maybe even necessary.

Crystal caves. If you’ve ever explored a cavern, you might have found crystalline structures organized along the cave walls. This symbol is about organization that arises under pressure. Something deep and foundational needs to be sorted out. This process will support your larger goals. Real organization is a task that’s easy to avoid. But this is how your life will become simplified.

Dog park. You can be like a pup at the dog park, running, scrambling, chasing, and going after the ball. Bark and play. Live larger than life for a day or two. Fight the urge to wonder if you are seen or heard. Just say and do! If you let yourself live in the moment, you’ll find that you are more creative. And your full embodiment of life will make it feel like there are limitless possibilities.

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Inside out t-shirt. Things are getting flipped inside out. This could either mean that you need to go inward or that you are seeing things from a new perspective. Probably both. Don’t expect to be your most productive right now or for life to go as it normally does. Feeling your feelings is the secret to recreating normalcy. Process your inner world to put things into perspective.

Golden castle. Look up on the hill and see the glimmering castle. It represents your greatest achievements and it’s there within reach. You might already be in the castle or you might be a short walk away. Everyone reaches their castle at their own pace. Pressure to get there fast only creates frustration. Encourage yourself with a sense of ownership. Your castle is there. It’s glorious.

Wishing well. You can throw pennies or gold. Either way, it’s time to set an intention. A solid intention is one that you invest in. And once you put in that solid effort, you are highly likely to gain a result. Put your energy into what you really want. Don’t put your energy into what you don’t want. It might seem obvious, but it’s actually very advanced to invest in your dreams instead of your worries.

An outstretched hand. The universe is holding out a hand to help you love yourself more. Our love for ourselves is fluid, just like any relationship.

A diving board. You’re taking the leap. There’s no way that you aren’t going to go deep at this Full Moon. So you need to bring all of the parts of yourself with you.

It will end up feeling very productive.

Frog on lily pad. The frog meditates and waits for the right moment, then reaches out its tongue to catch a fly. You must find a way to gain mental perspective.

Just focus on the task at hand.

Lava underneath. The bubble and boil is happening underground. Your deep emotions are being contained within. Are they stored in your muscles? In memories? In compulsions and habits? Are they bubbling out through your dreams? If you don’t want the volcano to erupt, work with this lava proactively. Massage, talking, writing or meditating may all help you find healthy release and empowerment.

Paper plane. Receive an important message written on a paper plane. There is insight headed your way. Your curiosity is being quenched.

THE 2019 PISCES NEW MOON WANTS YOU TO FIND STABILITY IN SURRENDER

The 2019 Pisces New Moon invites us to find solid ground through sweet surrender, and to float towards our goals instead of forcing, says Sandy Sitron

New Moon :: March 6th 2019 :: 11:05am EST :: 15 degrees Pisces

To understand yourself at this New Moon, get ready to become a subconscious spelunker, diving through underwater caves. Take a ride on the metaphor train.

The first stop on this dreamy adventure is a visit to the Moon. We need to know what the Moon has to say. This is a chance to open up the windows and doors of our subconscious and connect to our spiritual truth.

Pisces energy is nonverbal and communicates in the language of symbol. It will help us to learn metaphorically.

So today, the Moon is a mermaid. This mermaid is practical. She is all-business. She is matter-of-fact. A grounded and responsible mermaid? How could this be? How could she be grounded if she lives in the sea? She knows what she values and her intentions are steady. She is willing to work. But she’s also fluid. She doesn’t try to control her erratic environment.

This New Moon is teaching you how to pivot gracefully. Can you swim through your day? Not trying to control up or down? Not bucking against the current? Yet still feeling grounded, secure, and serene?

This New Moon is properly positioned to help you stabilize. But you must be willing to accept a kind of abnormal stability. You will naturally need to do things differently. Let your intuition guide you. Ask for signs and symbols.

To get something done, you will need to float toward it. Bump into it like a sailboat grazing against a dock. Let things drift into place. Notice what floating can do for you. Letting go of control is the ultimate win.

Be a sailboat, not a sailor. Be a mermaid who gets things done without a plan. Find your footing in water. The point is that you can’t plan, but you can still feel steady. Your steadiness must come from your connection to self and spirit.

Pisces is the vibration of universal truth. It is about transcending the Earth plane and moving into the realms of emotion, intuition, and compassion. To get to this other dimension, you need to creatively swim through your own physical boundaries. You have to change your perspective.

///

Uranus moves into Taurus
Tsunami. Uranus’ ingress into Taurus is what adds the erratic quality to this moment. Visualize yourself as a dreamy fish-person. If you are deep down in the water, do you notice the tsunami? Meaning, if you are deeply connected to your inner wisdom, does the chaos in the world even phase you?

///

New Moon sextile Saturn and Mars
The practical mermaid. Earthy and supportive aspects to Mars in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn give this Pisces New Moon a surprisingly practical edge. That’s what makes this mermaid rather grounded. But with Mercury retrograde, if you try to give the mermaid too much to do, she’ll dry up. Let her drift into work and notice how much she gets accomplished.

///

New Moon conjunct Neptune
Let the fish slip through your fingers. The Sun and Moon are joined by fishy Neptune in the sign of Pisces, making this New Moon a slippery friend. Don’t try to tighten your grip too much, you’ll lose your prize. Let go of control. Instead, loosen up and drift lightly into your own ocean of inner wisdom by trusting your process. You can’t plan it. But you can bump into it.

Notebook paper. Are you ready to take action? Write down notes. This is not the time for hesitancy. Look deep within and decide what it is that you need so that you’re ready for action. Self-doubt can be dissolved. Fear can be confronted. The notebook paper suggests that this is your first draft. You don’t have to be perfect. Just hand in your first draft for review.

Give voice to your actual feelings so that you can fly high.

THE 2019 VIRGO FULL MOON WANTS YOU TO REFINE YOUR VIBRATION

The 2019 Virgo Full Moon is an opportunity to adjust our approach and refine our routines, so we can create everyday magic that heals both body and soul, says Sandy Sitron

Photo: Aneta Pawlik

Full Moon :: February 19 2019 :: 10:53 am EST :: 0 degrees Virgo

Zoom way in and visualize the reverberation of a single harp string. Watch as it undulates, chaotic yet controlled. Science has discovered that the harp has healing qualities, bestowing upon the musician a healthier nervous system and curing countless mental and physical ailments. But no one knows why it works.

A Full Moon occurs when the Sun and the Moon are exactly opposite. This opposition forces new levels of awareness as we try to integrate two very different energies at once. It is explosive and expansive.

Themes of healing are highlighted at this Full Moon. Healing the physical realm by making adjustments to the functional systems (Virgo). And healing the spiritual body through an expansion of faith and compassion (Pisces).

There are theories that the harp’s tiny vibrations stimulate the lymph system. I like to imagine that these minute vibrations somehow tone and balance every cell in the body, like every cell getting a microscopic spa day.

A Virgo Full Moon is a time to tone physical systems through minor adjustments, while surrendering the big-picture “how” or “why” to the abyss of Piscean miracles. 

Virgo teaches us how to refine and improve the components of our physical reality, so that we can maximize health and efficiency. Pisces instructs us to loosen our grip on reality and dissolve into the magical dream. To recede back into the world of spirit where all is love and connection.

What is your equivalent of the healing harp these days? What restores you so that you can function most efficiently? Is there an instrument, practice, or habit that helps you transcend?

Sometimes a Virgo Full Moon can bring a potential for overthinking and perfectionism. But with a graceful trine between the Moon, Uranus, and Mars, be open to surprising new ways of doing things. You could be just as likely to bust out and spontaneously take on a new approach.

This Virgo Full Moon occurs at the very beginning of Pisces Season, which is all about flowing with the feelings, and showing yourself deep empathy so that you have the reserves to understand the emotional side of the human experience. It’s Compassion 101.

This Full Moon is an island in the sea of Pisces-style emotions. This sliver of earth is where you’ll set sail from. And right now you are packing up your ship. If you prepare your craft now, you’ll be able to sail safely through emotional waters in the weeks ahead.

Pay attention to all the details as you pack and prepare. Get things organized. Practice good habits. How can you be more efficient? There are small things that you can do, physical practices that will support your health. Like the healing harp, the small vibrations that you create in your life might have seemingly miraculous results.

New discoveries are coming in rapidly with this Full Moon, so expect change to be easy. Be open to it as you continue to practice, refine, work, and stay busy. And remain very aware of your instrument – your body. What can you do to create vibrational alignment that results in apparent miracles?

Virgo is interested in the minutia, the tiny vibrations of the harp strings. Virgo is the musician who practices diligently, refining and improving every movement over time. Pisces offers a result that’s greater than the sum of its parts – miraculous alchemy. At this Full Moon, it’s time to have both.

A puff mushroom explodes.
The puff mushroom is moon-like in shape and color. When it ripens just enough, it will spontaneously explode and release baby mushroom spores to the wind. It’s a surprise that’s expected. Just as natural as drinking a glass of water. But when it happens, there’s still a minor shock. Everything is different in a moment.

There are surprises coming that you may be expecting. They can help you move to the next phase in your development. Sometimes you just need an extra push to create change. This is it.

A horse and carriage.
Your ride is waiting. It’s obvious that it’s time to get moving. And it’s not difficult. All you have to do is get in and go. Yes, this is a horse and carriage, not a car or a jet plane. So we are taking into account that some extra preparations have been made. The horses are brushed and harnessed. You’ve had to pack for a difficult journey, there are no corner stores or debit cards on this ride. Instead, there are long winding roads and you must be prepared. But you also need to make your move now because the carriage is waiting. It should be easy at this point to get in and drive.

Pisces or Pisces Rising
A beautiful woven tapestry. A weaving. Small pieces are brought together to form a beautiful work of art. Put effort into your relationships. You generally need to recharge with alone time, and that’s wonderful. But at the moment the focus is on your time with others. Let your conversations flow. Be accountable and considerate. Harmony and beauty will be the result.

Pancake batter. Things are beginning to take shape. Pancakes start out as a liquid and with the addition of heat, become solid. You need to bring the fire / heat / motivation / spirit in a very organized way. With a magic combination of motivation and restraint, things will start to look more solid. Go step by step and follow the recipe, but don’t hesitate to fire it up at the right moment.

Taurus or Taurus Rising
A group hiking tour. There is an exploration to embark upon. Or a chance to express yourself creatively. You are a special individual and it’s time for you to explore and play and honor your own uniqueness. But simultaneously, you are on this journey with a group. So it’s not all about you. You will need to compromise. Enjoy playing with others, because it gives you more chances to connect.

Gemini or Gemini Rising
Pages of a book. Go back to the beginning. Now that you know the plot, try to remember what you learned during the first few pages. How your perspective has changed! The metaphor is reminding you to revisit your childhood and remember how you felt back then. Now that you have more perspective, what story would you like to share with your inner child?

Cancer or Cancer Rising
Inside the body. How much do you know about what’s happening inside your body? Imagine what it would be like to travel on a magical school bus through all of your organs and veins. It might seem like a stretch, but imagining fun stories about your inner mechanisms will help you rethink important situations in your life right now. It’s a perspective shift.

Leo or Leo Rising
Game show. Your chance to win a prize has increased, literally or figuratively. The literal prize could be exciting- enter contests and see what happens, as long as it’s just for fun. The figurative prize is more interesting. What would it be like to know on deep levels how much of a prize you are? To have that sense of self-worth resonate through all levels of mind and body? Jackpot.

Virgo or Virgo Rising
Boomerang. Put yourself out there and notice what comes back to you. You don’t need to overthink anything. Often we try to discern whether our efforts are worth it. And that’s efficient, certainly. But for now it’s about just putting energy forward and noticing what the return is. Then doing it again. You can judge the process later. This is a moment to shine and receive.

Libra or Libra Rising
Sitting on a porch. Retire to an imaginary (or real) retreat, and let yourself pass the time. Now is a moment to reset just a bit and let your mind wander without a destination. Think of this as important restoration. Tune out from your phone or email and give yourself some space and time to just be. Ask yourself if doing so is a luxury or a necessity.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising
Elephant parade. What is your wise message that you are ready to share with a larger group of people? Now is a time to collaborate and feel like you are a part of something. Connect with your group. It may be political. It may have to do with work, creativity, or spirituality. Sharing and brainstorming will help you feel stronger and more aligned.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising
Spaghetti on the wall. Keep trying out different ideas. It doesn’t all have to be perfect right now. But you are trying to see what is functional. This symbol is about throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what sticks. Know that while you are trying out different things, you are still working toward your goals in a very big way. You are experimenting your way to excellence.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising
Fresh air. Get out there where the grass is green and the air is clean. This may be literal – a reminder to connect with nature and breathe fresh air for revitalization. Or it may be symbolic – meaning that it’s time to breathe adventure, curiosity, and purpose into your endeavors. You just need a minor reboot so that you can operate with motivation and excitement.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising
Blinkers and blinders. The term for the eye coverings that go on a horse’s bridle to help it stay focused on the path ahead. You need to remove distractions and focus your attention on your emotions. It can be very hard to stay centered on the emotions. It’s much easier to look away. When you really drill down and stay focused, you’ll find emotional release and healing as a result.

Putting dinner in the oven. You’ve done the mental preparation. Now it’s time to put your creation in the oven and let it do its own thing. There are times when you can crunch and effort and work.
