How to Discover & Pursue Your Purpose

Photo: DIY Geometric Pinboards via Enthralling Gumption

 

Ever since I first discovered my purpose by looking deeper into my own astrological birth chart (which just happened to also be the beginning of a new career path for me), I knew I needed to help spread this information to help as many people as possible because it is just SO useful.

It’s sad to me how some people really do believe that life has no meaning and that your work is just supposed to be work. There is just no way that can be true. The ancient study of astrology straight up proves there is something SO much greater going on behind the scenes – something way more magical and meaningful than we probably ever thought was possible.

The stars show us that the work you do for a living does NOT just have to be that thing you do to pay your bills or put food on the table. That’s sooo boring… and so last century!

As funny, emotional & real humans living in 2017 – who were NOT born into this world just to be corporate robots or bottom-dollar minions – we can find the most enjoyment in our careers when we are fulfilling a personal calling (some even like to call it their soul purpose). So how do you discover yours?

 

THE SECRET FORMULA

As a career astrologer, I tend to look at your astrology chart as a complete picture when I am helping you clarify what you are truly meant to be doing in the world based on your Cosmic Blueprint (a map of the stars & planets at the precise timing and location of your birth), however there is a basic formula I use that allows me to tap into the exact nature of the work you were born to do:

  1. YOUR SUN SIGN: This describes what truly lights you up and makes you come alive, as well as what you’re truly the best at.
  2. YOUR MOON SIGN: Where the moon falls on your chart describes what makes you feel the most comfortable & supported in life.
  3. YOUR RISING SIGN: This describes your identity, your potential, and the type of work you’re really meant to do in the world.
  4. YOUR CAREER ZONE: This area of your chart explains the legacy you aim to leave and how you do your work differently from others in the same field as you.

 

Once you finally understand your own answers behind this formula, AMAZING things really do happen… as I accidentally discovered for myself just last year. Your energy floats up higher in your body activating the 8th chakra above your crown, and suddenly you hold yourself up higher with more confidence, harnessing a fine-tuned focus that is specifically aimed RIGHT at your life mission. You know what you want, and now you just need to align yourself with it and focus on taking action to make it happen (which is easier said than done, of course!).

Your life + career is SO much more fun when you know exactly what excites and drives you to reach your potential, however, that’s really just the beginning.

 

The question is…

When you finally do know what your purpose is,
how do you make it happen?

 

Your Cosmic Blueprint is a magical map to your past, present, and future potential that has endless capabilities for unlocking the truth about your purpose and the reasons why you are the way you are. However, it’s NOT a magic wand in itself.

Astrology can provide you with the overall idea of what you’re meant to be doing, but it’s not going to be enough for you to simply understand your chart and get excited about your calling (that’s just the fun part!). You’ll also need to become courageous enough to “DO” your chart if you want to experience the feel-good flow that occurs when you’re in complete alignment with your authentic self.

Even after I looked at my own chart and started to realize I was really meant to be a mystic – and not a graphic designer like I was – there was SO much that had to change and uplevel for me to step into this upgraded role, it’s not even funny! (Someday I will probably even share this crazy story with you.)

And after giving so many readings and helping so many women figure out what their true calling is, too, I sort of feel like *I* have a responsibility to remind you of the responsibility you will have to yourself after your reading ends and you have to march right back into the “real” world again.

That’s why I am so happy to have teamed up with my biz bestie & expert life coach for badass babes, Laura Weldy, to blend the mystical + the practical to give you the cosmic inspiration and concrete implementation you need to get started on your dream career.

In our free video, I’ve broken down my tried & true formula for using your birth chart to determine your life’s purpose even more than I already have here (plus sharing examples from our own charts!), and Laura has let us in on her expert 5-step strategy to translate this inspiration into daily actions! Spiritual Discovery + Practicality = a match made in heaven.

🌑✧🌒🌓🌔🌕

This month’s theme: Connecting vs. Self-Discovery ~

The world is waking up! The bees are buzzing, the flowers are blooming, and the season of the social butterfly is now in session. This month’s moon cycle will be falling on the Gemini/Sagittarius axis, opposite signs that both have to do with getting out and about to share information that can help others.

While the Sun is in Gemini, so is the New Moon, making June a busy, fast-moving month that will be all about showing up to socialize, connect, collaborate, and learn from one another. This is the time to take your goals & plans on the road to collect ideas from others and see what we can all create when we work & play together.

We may even start to realize it’s okay to ask for the help we need, and that things might even be more fun if we tap into our network to find someone to collaborate with along the way.

What we will also find out throughout this month, however, is that achieving our biggest goals will require both the process of connecting and self-discovery.

The balance between these two sides is one of the major themes we’ll be exploring during this moon cycle! Read on for more…

 

Gemini Constellation

 

🌚 NEW MOON in Gemini // May 25, 2017 @ 11:44 am PT / 2:44 pm ET / 7:44 pm UK / 4:44 am AEST (on the 26th)

Connecting with others can be an excellent way to support one another in achieving our goals. Have you ever noticed how many other people there are in the world, let alone just on Instagram using some of the same hashtags as you? I mean, it’s crazy. Chances are there are many different people in your network that you could be collaborating with to make something amazing happen for the both of you!

With our New Moon in Gemini, we’re finally stepping away from working all alone to see how we can tap in to our connections to make some mutual magic.

When it all comes down to it, Gemini is all about connection, making a statement, and sharing a message. This involves expressing your ideas & interests, whether that is in writing, a podcast, webinar, e-mail funnel, social media, or using any other type of shortform communication that allows you to best get your thoughts across to the people who need what you have to offer easily & efficiently.

This could be the beginning of discussions for a fruitful new collaboration or a new phase of life where you’re able to seek out like-minded people you can work with to help promote your work on a greater level in a way that is beneficial for you both. Get in touch with your network to match up your ideas with someone else’s and see the amazing things you can create when you have more than just your brain behind it!

On this New Moon, some great questions to ask yourself are:

  • “How can I tap into my network to help me get more of what I want?”
  • “What is the message or solution I would love to share, and what is the best way for me to share it?”
  • “Who in my network could I be learning something from now?”
  • “How can I make the most of the resources that are available to me right where I am?”

This New Moon will culminate in a Full Moon in Gemini on December 17, 2017. Imagine what big things you want to manifest by then and focus your intentions on them throughout this moon cycle.

 

 

Sagittarius Constellation

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Sagittarius // June 9, 2017 @ 5:10 am PT / 8:10 am ET / 1:10 pm GMT / 10:10 pm AEST

Self-discovery allows us to decide what really matters. As great as it can be to get out and about to socialize with the same people all the time, there’s a big, interesting world out there just waiting for you to go off and explore.

But while Sagittarius is mainly known as the wander-lusting traveler, lifelong learner, and freedom seeker, this sign also deals with the idea of escaping off over the next horizon to seek magic in all of the places it is not, and straight up avoiding troubles or discomfort that may come up along the way.

Our Full Moon in Sagittarius will remind us of where we have been escaping from our problems and avoiding the truth about ourselves.

This fiery Full Moon will be perfect for letting go of anything that has been keeping you from making the most of who you really are and viewing your current life + career situation in a more optimistic light.

Amazingly, this Full Moon is in a rare alignment with the Galactic Center, the central energy source for our entire solar system, powering us from within so we can become re-aligned with our personal truth. Another lucky omen occurring on this same exact day is that our planet of growth & abundance Jupiter will finally be ending its long retrograde, giving us all the go ahead to move forward on our greatest plans for growth and joyful expansion with full appreciation for the journey it has taken for us to get to this point.

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • On this Full Moon, look for answers around:
    – “What is the deeper truth I have been discovering about myself?”
    – “Where have I been failing to see the truth, and how can I now release this?”
    – – “What outmoded beliefs, systems, or habits am I ready to let go of, so I can bring even more joy, freedom & abundance into my life + career?”
    – “What am I grateful to have been able to experience on my journey so far?”

On a wider scale, this Full Moon will signal the completion of a cycle that began on the New Moon in Sagittarius on November 29, 2016. Look back for a moment… what did you wish for then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

Career Scopes for Gemini Season ~ 5/21 – 6/20

Gemini Season: May 21 – June 20 ~

Come out, come out, wherever you are! After a month of working hard to get more of what we really want for ourselves during Taurus season, we’re ready to get out there and see who around us can help bring that vision to life.

Now that the world is coming alive again, this month is the perfect time to get back in touch with your circle of friends, siblings, acquaintances, or potential business partners and see how you can help each other out or even find a way to collaborate in some way.

Gemini is a sociable sign that loves to keep insanely busy by following its curiosities, sharing ideas, and networking with others.

Here’s the thing, though. After going so slowly and learning to savor every moment in Taurus Season, Gemini only wishes it could slow down! Ideas, tasks, meetings, and multi-tasking will be non-stop at this time, and it may be especially easy to get lost in the noise or get distracted away from your main mission due to a classic case of FOMO (fear of missing out). Priorities, people!

We also have our planet of growth & abundance, Jupiter, finally ending its retrograde period on June 9th and charging forward again in the harmonious sign of Libra. This will be your true cue to branch out to new territory and embrace an even greater feeling of bountiful magic in your life. ✨

The only problem is that Neptune – the planet of dreams, ideals & delusions – will be going into retrograde only a week after Jupiter goes direct, which can jumble up your dream vision for the future and make your truest desires a little more confusing than normal.

So, as you embark on this month, no matter what your zodiac sign is… it’s going to be very important to remember to always re-align with who you really are and what you really want, and don’t forget to enlist all the stops when it comes to the amazing art and array of self-care rituals that can help you calm down and re-gain the proper perspective when life & work gets crazy.

Some of the most major upcoming astrological events over the next month include:

  • New Moon in Gemini – May 25, 2017
  • Jupiter Retrograde Ends – June 9, 2017
  • Full Moon in Sagittarius – June 9, 2017
  • Neptune Retrograde Begins – June 16, 2017


What will this season have in store for your zodiac sign specifically? Find out below…

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

It’s the dawning of a new day! For much of the last month, you were forced to do a lot of deep inner work to figure out what you really want next for yourself in your life + career. This month, the Sun enters your 3rd house of Social Networking. Now that you’ve become more aware of what your desires might entail, it’s a great time for you to get out and socialize with others in your circle of friends, aquaintances, or business buddies to see if there’s someone else you could be collaborating with to make it happen faster. Did somebody say “Joint Venture”?

With the Full Moon falling in your 9th house of Travel & Education, you may need to ward against getting bored, distracted or becoming infatuated with the infectious idea of escaping away from business as usual. Don’t let your wildest ideas seduce you! Instead, this is the time to allow yourself to become more aware of the sea of opportunities that exist all around you – and the real magic is going to be found in appreciating the people and things that already surround you in your everyday life.

Lucky for you, with Jupiter heading direct, it will finally be primetime for growing & deepening your relationships with others. However, with Neptune going into retrograde on June 16th, you may also begin to face some confusion around what your bigger dream or mission actually is. Try to remain patient & open-hearted and you shall attract all that you desire in time.  << Back to Top

 

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

You’re finally coming into your own, dear Taurus. Over the last month, you’ve been working very hard to figure out how to establish your identity on a more authentic level. With the Sun now rallying into 2nd base, your next order of business is to establish your ground rules, a.k.a. figure out what the things are that are really going to make you love your life – and make doing more of that your mission!

The only thing is that our Full Moon in Sagittarius will be landing in your 8th house of Financial Resources. So, if you are now going to allow yourself to have what you want, you’ll need to be prepared to silence those crazy voices in your head that have told you it cannot happen. Of course it can, you’re a Taurus! You’ll just need to tend your garden of wishes with care and consistency, and you will eventually succeed.

Your lucky area of growth for this year, which is your area of Health, Work & Daily Routines, becomes re-activated as Jupiter moves direct mid-month. However, Neptune will soon be crossing wires in your community sector, so you will want to be mindful of avoiding friendly-seeming situations that may sound dreamy, but just aren’t all that practical for you. If you can keep your eye on the prize, you might just be surprised at what you can accomplish. << Back to Top

 

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

Happy Birthday, Gemini! I hope you’re ready to come out of your bubble and enter the world as the new true you. Last month, you were lost in thought, trying to figure out what really matters most to you in life. Now, the Sun moves into your 1st house of Identity, allowing you to leave that confusing stream of consciousness behind and embrace your light. This is the month to evolve into more of who you really want to be and think about how you’d like to express your magic out in the world in a bigger way.

Of course, as the sign of the twins, there may be two sides to this story (isn’t there always?). The Full Moon will be falling in your opposite sign of Sagittarius, asking you to balance out your own personal development with that of your partner (or other important people around you). As you find your light, you may need to find new ways of relating to the people who still know you as the ‘old’ you. Try to be gentle as you help them bridge the gap & upgrade their expectations.

Meanwhile, your yearly gift from growth planet Jupiter is going be heightening your sense of Fun & Creativity, and this present will be re-activated again mid-month once Jupiter goes direct. Yay for the freedom to create more of the life you want! However, Neptune is going to be in retrograde soon after, creating a shadow of confusion around career matters. Sorry, but this is NOT the time to make a full-on decision about a possible career path – it’s going to be much better for experimenting and trying on different ideas to see which ones make you feel the most ‘you’ instead. << Back to Top

 

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

After a busy month reaching out to the people in your community to share more of what you’ve got to offer, this is going to be more of a month of introspection for you, dear Cancer. Now the Sun will be moving into your 12th house of Spirituality & Mystical Pursuits, causing you to ask yourself what it will take to achieve more inner harmony with yourself as you learn how to answer some of the bigger questions in life (like “Who am I?” and “Why am I here?”). No big deal, right?

With the Full Moon falling in your 6th house of Health, Work & Daily Routines, you’re also in for a change of perspective in how you structure your days. Perhaps there are certain things you haven’t been doing to support yourself, that you may start becoming fully aware of so you can now switch it up. Maybe that’s by doing more for your body to keep it healthy, or even by changing how you go about your work to make it easier, more meaningful, or more supportive for you.

The good news is that growth planet Jupiter will be back in action in your home & family sector in mid-June, allowing you to open up to more abundance by securing your bonds with family members or upgrading your home life in some magical way. Your favorite! Towards the end of the month, dreamy planet Neptune will be going retrograde in your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education. This may prompt you to re-visit your grandest dreams & ideals for your life, especially surrounding the places you want to go or the things you’ve wanted to learn. Just think long & hard before actually committing to chasing after any wild visions of travel or even going back to college quite yet, as not everything may be fully clear for the next five months. << Back to Top

 

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

Hey Leo, ready to get out and show the world what you’ve got? Last month you were busy working out how you can go so much further in your career. Now that the Sun is moving into your 11th house of Community, you’ll be more than ready to get out and mingle with friends or maybe even give back to your community in some way. One thing is for sure – your social calendar won’t be slowing down anytime soon!

The only thing is that, with the Full Moon landing in your 5th house of Creativity, you may become more aware of all of the things that you have been doing that have been taking away from the level of FUN of happening in your life.  It’s nice to collaborate with others from time to time, but what about YOUR creativity and your unique passions? If anything (or anyone) has been holding you back from expressing yourself more fully, this will be the time to take notice so you can let the true creative genius inside back out to roam.

As Jupiter glides back into your good graces in your 3rd house of Networking, the end of June will see you start widening your circle of aquaintances or finding a few good connections to help you get more of what you want in your life or career. Just be aware that business matters may become a bit more hazy as Neptune slips into retrograde soon after. You may have BIG, incredible ideas for building up your financially secure empire, but be smart and make sure they are actually viable for you and not just some wild dream that only sounds good in your mind. << Back to Top

 

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

Hope you’ve had a nice time exploring, Virgo! After a big month of discovering what else there is to this crazy thing called life through some exciting travel adventures, spiritual studies, and/or real life studies, this month is going to be all about the big “C”… your Career! The whole world is wondering… what will s/he do next? (Not really, but it sure might feel like it now!) This is the month to get out & collaborate with others to drum up your next big idea and find ways to deepen your reputation for what you really want to be known for.

You’ve also got the Full Moon in Sagittarius landing in your 4th arena of Home & Family, a surefire way to make your fears around long-term security rise to the surface. This is going to be a good time to let go of all of the things that have been making you feel on edge about your living situation, your long term picture, or just the idea of being able to find a greater sense of comfort in your own inner circle of family. You do have the ability to provide for yourself far into the future, you just need to believe in yourself!

And can you say, ka-ching? Mid-June will be bearing gifts for you when growth planet Jupiter goes direct in your 2nd house of Values. That means receiving more love, money, admiration, or anything else you have discovered is truly important to you. Just remain clear on what exactly you want and this energy will help you expand on it until well into October. There’s also Neptune going retrograde later in June, which may make your biggest dreams and ideals for your close relationships or partnerships a bit foggy for a while. You may have amazing big plans for another person, but you may need to make sure they match up with what they have in mind, too. << Back to Top

 

 

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

Time to be free, Libra! Over the past month, you’ve been busy working on your financial picture to make yourself feel more secure for the future. Now, as the Sun glides through your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education, you may feel the ache to step outside your normal day-to-day and learn something new. Perhaps you’re ready for something as expansive as a trip abroad, or as small as a daily meditation practice. Find balance now through exploring outside your normal realm of knowledge.

With the Full Moon in Sagittarius bumping into your 3rd house of Networking, you may also be feeling a little uneasy about the people you keep in your company. It could be time for a re-shuffle of friendships, or even to have the ability to accept that you are feeling ready for a whole new scene or something else completely different from what you’re normally used to.

As lucky Jupiter resumes its forward motion through your sign and your 1st house of Identity in mid-June, you will soon be finding more & more opportunities to assert yourself as a unique individual and step into a more confident version of your true self! Ask yourself, how would the new version of me take care of myself? With Neptune in retrograde in your 6th house of Health, Work & Daily Routines, you’ll still need to remember to support yourself by staying caught up on basic life responsibilities and enforcing a healthy daily routine to boost you up behind the scenes. << Back to Top

 

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

Ready to get down to some serious business, Scorpio? After a month of diving deeper into your relationship issues and strengthening your closest bonds (or maybe even cutting ties, if the time has called for it), now it’s time to get real about sorting out your financial future. What actions can you take this month to secure your livelihood for the long haul? Maybe you are finally ready for a job that pays more, or even that exciting business venture with a promising outlook?

Just make sure that you DO have some type of goal in mind. Your fears of not having what you want or need could easily bubble up to the surface as the Full Moon in Sagittarius will be falling right into your 2nd house of Values, so it’s going to be very important that you know what you’re trying to achieve and what your idea of success truly entails. Write down a plan to help you get clear on what you really do want, so there will be nothing else holding you back from making it happen!

Lucky for you, growth planet Jupiter will be turning around and marching right back into your 12th house of Spirituality from June to October, helping you deepen into more magical, spiritual pursuits that can end up giving you a greater sense of balance in your life. Shortly after that begins happening, however, Neptune will be the one to go retrograde next. Your dreams & ideals around what you really want to create in the world may be especially confusing at this time, so expect to use the next 5 months to experiment with different ways of having fun or being creative in your life + career to suss out an even clearer ideal vision to work towards. << Back to Top

 

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Last month you did a lot of exploring around what it means to be more mindful in your daily rituals, taking stock of the ways you support yourself to be able to do your best work. As the Sun now floats through your opposite sign of Gemini, it’s time to come to terms with what makes you whole as a person. This month your focus is on Relationships, and strengthening your bonds with others who can support you in your life or even your business, as this can include both business & romantic relationships. Just know that this is not just about figuring out if the people around you have your back, but if you are truly going to be able to have theirs in return, too.

Not gonna lie, you do have a tough Full Moon this month as it will be falling in YOUR sign. You may also be purging a lot of baggage around loving yourself, accepting your true identity, and expressing your individual truth as a unique person in this world. This really does go hand in hand with the relationship discovery process mentioned above. You do know what they say: You’ve got to love yourself before you can truly love somebody else.”

Meanwhile, your ruling planet Jupiter will back in action in your 11th house of Community, helping you reach out to others in bigger and more exciting ways than ever before. Maybe this means growing your online following, or finding new & improved ways to relate with your friends or people in your community. Just be aware that your ideal vision of home & long-term security may be put into question once Neptune goes retrograde soon after! For the next 5 months, you may be exploring what type of home & family you really dream of and why, so allow yourself to remain fluid as your ideas are still developing. << Back to Top

 

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

After a month of exploring new ways to have fun & enjoy yourself more, it’s time to get back into self-care mode. With the Sun now flittering through your 6th house of Health, Work, and Daily Routines, you are due for a check-up to take a look at all of the ways you support yourself in the day-to-day. So, are you taking care of your health? Or are you working yourself half to death? It’s time to be the boss of you and do what you need to do to re-align your daily schedule with your true needs.

With the Full Moon falling in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, you are finally ready to release something quite big. A limiting belief that has been holding you back. A secret you’ve kept from yourself or others. Something that has scared you silly in the past, but you’re now ready to put behind you. Let all of the negativity go, so you can embrace what you need to do to feel your best!

Once you have found your balance, it will be time to grow your career again. With Jupiter ending a long retrograde period where maybe you have felt a bit unsure about your next direction, you will now be able to charge ahead on career matters and expand your legacy. Just be sure you are not giving others the wrong idea about you. Neptune will be heading into retrograde in your 3rd house of Social Networking, mixing up signals and creating mysteries and illusions around your ideal way of communicating for the next 5 months. As mixed up as you may feel around expressing yourself, it’s really going to be helpful for you to try to be as direct as possible when it comes to your work, especially if any contracts are involved. << Back to Top

 

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

Ready to come back out into the light, Aquarius? Last month was an important month to focus on strengthening your home & family life, and you’re probably quite ready for a bit of fun. Luckily, the sign of Gemini falls in your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, and this is going to be an excellent month to invite more play into your day-to-day. This is the time to find something that makes you feel your most creative and GO WILD!

Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Sagittarius will be landing in your 11th house of Community, potentially bringing up any issues you may have been harboring around being creative out in your community. This Full Moon will ask you to re-set the balance between what you give to others and what you give to yourself. This is going to be both about enabling yourself to give and allowing yourself to receive.

With Jupiter turning around and coming right back through your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education in mid-June, you will once again have the opportunity to expand your horizons in exciting new ways. Perhaps this means becoming a bit of a jetsetter or getting the opportunity to dive into life-altering new reading material that excites your mind. The only issue is that Neptune Retrograde in your 2nd house can have you feeling a little disoriented around what you want, so you may need to use the next 5 months to experiment & ruminate on your dreamiest ideals for the future before you can set your next solid life goal. << Back to Top

 


Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

While last month you may have been quite busy networking and collaborating with others, it’s now time to set your sights on more of your long-term vision. As the Sun roams through your 4th house, you’re ready to dive deeper into things that make you feel stable in your life, like your home, family, or even a savings fund. Which actions can you take to start being able to live your life feeling more comfortable and in control?

The Full Moon in Sagittarius will be falling in your 10th house of Career, and this is a time when you will be asked to release any fears related to being successful in your career. The first step to true success is believing in yourself, and this moon will allow you to let go of your limiting beliefs so you can become stronger for yourself and others around you, such as your family.

Try not to worry long (or at all), dear Pisces. Soon lucky planet Jupiter will be flying back into your 8th house of Business come mid-June. This is YOUR year to expand your financial structures and create a greater sense of security within the way you make your money. The only problem is that Neptune will begin its retrograde in your sign shortly after. So, for the next 5 months, you may discover confusion around who you really are, who you dream of becoming, and how you believe you appear to others. You may just need to try on several different hats before you can decide which ones you feel the best wearing. << Back to Top

Monthly Moonscope for May 2017

This month’s theme: Grounding vs. Transformation ~

It’s time to savor the moments as the seasons are changing in the hemispheres. With the month of May, we have a moon cycle that teeters on the edge of the Taurus & Scorpio axis. Complete opposites, these signs are also somewhat similar because they both work to transform their deeper desires into tangible assets that can provide more comfort in the months ahead. (But they sure have their differences, too!)

They say “April showers bring May flowers”, and the truth is that any hard work you put in now will surely be rewarded. Venus is no longer in retrograde and it is possible to get what you want, as long as you are truly fired up about it and you’re ready to put in the long-term efforts to ensure that whatever you create next is of high quality, high integrity, and not to mention profitable, too.

After Mercury ends its retrograde period on May 3rd, it will be prime time to move ahead with your agenda. There will still be 3 remaining planets in retrograde, however, including Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, so the need to test all of your projects for practicality, growth potential, and facing your inner needs for evolution will still be ongoing.

What we will find out throughout this month, however, is that achieving our wildest desires will require both a strong sense of grounding and transformation. As the moon flows through May, you’ll learn to know when to bloom where you’re planted, and when to tear up the roots to prepare for something more beautiful to come through.

The balance between these two sides is one of the major themes we’ll be exploring during this moon cycle! Read on for more…

 

 

🌚 NEW MOON in Taurus // April 26, 2017 @ 4:16 am PT / 7:16 am ET / 12:16 pm UK / 9:16 pm AEST

Grounding into your daily life + work process provides many daily mini miracles. This is a much slower season when we are meant to savor every effort and carefully plot out each move to make sure that what we are creating is truly going to be meaningful in the long run.

With our New Moon in Taurus, we are bringing in the idea of taking practical & artfully crafted steps towards the future, and trying to savor every passing moment along the way.

This sign is ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty, harmony, money, admiration, and all of the sweet stuff we often crave to make our lives more comfortable. Now in Aries, Venus invites us to spark fresh ideas for the future and get on board with a more enjoyable period of life again.

Taurus is the stabilizer. This sign invites us to slow. it. down. and savor our senses a little more. Take your time to carefully plot out your next moves and orchestrate the whole thing in just the right amount of time you need to really make it shine. Pamper yourself and sing a little song while you do the mundane tasks you have to do every day to move you forward in your career. Think in smaller increments and try to make your work more enjoyable and higher quality. You’ll find that consciously raising your vibes this month will take you much further than if you’re riding on stress all the time!

On this New Moon, some great questions to ask yourself are:

  • “What do I truly value, desire, or crave next in my life + career?”
  • “What seeds am I planting now that can eventually grow into big, fruitful endeavors?”
  • “How can I express my artistic creative side more?”
  • “How can I indulge more in my daily routine and learn to go with the beautiful flow of life?”

This New Moon will culminate in a Full Moon in Taurus on November 4, 2017. Imagine what big things you want to manifest by then and focus your intentions on it throughout this moon cycle.

 

 

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Scorpio // May 10, 2017 @ 1:42 pm PT / 4:42 pm ET / 8:42 pm GMT / 6:42 am AEST

Transformation requires us to break down barriers to change. Remember all of those things you’ve done that you never thought you could do? Somewhere along the lines your thoughts & beliefs had to change and you were made to realize that life doesn’t have to be so black & white all the time.

Our Full Moon in Scorpio will invite us to dive deep to uncover all of the negative beliefs that have held us back from revealing our inner desires & achieving personal transformation in the past.

While Taurus symbolizes comfort, Scorpio swims in the darker waters to get to the bottom of the deeper instinctual desires we all hold inside, but don’t always wish to recognize out in pure daylight… whether because we didn’t know how to do it, we didn’t have the right connections, or we simply never thought we were good enough.

This Full Moon will be wonderful for reflecting on far you’ve come, where you want to go next (Scorpios are known to be trés ambitious!), and uncovering what in the world has been holding you back from expressing your inner wisdom on a grander scale. In other words, it’s time to let go of the limiting beliefs or hidden memories that have been holding you back or that have somehow led you to believe you can’t have (or be) what you want.

On a wider scale, this Full Moon will be the culmination point of the New Moon in Scorpio which occurred back on October 30, 2016. Look back for a moment… what did you wish for then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

 

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “Who is the person I used to be & how have I changed?”
  • “Who is the person I am now on my way to becoming?”
  • “How can I express my deeper internal desires on a grander scale?”
  • “What are my limiting beliefs that have been holding me back from making much-needed changes in my life + career (and how can I now release this)?”

The next New Moon will fall in Gemini on May 25, 2017.

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

After a month of exploring your relationship with your lovely self and others in your close circle, it’s time to go after what you really want. With the Sun now zooming through Taurus and your 2nd house of Values, you will be exploring what matters to you most in your life + career, as well as how you’re going to get it. This is an excellent time to formulate a wish list of what your perfect life + career would be like, and then get ready to begin working on bringing it into your life in the future.

Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Scorpio will land in your 8th house of Business. Once you know what you want, you’ll need to release any limiting beliefs or insecurities that have been keeping you from getting it in the past. What are some ways your financial picture could be more secure? Any issues that are keeping you from attaining a healthier flow of abundance & security will come up to the surface now to be released and transcended. By the time this month is over, you’ll be ready and raring to go tap into your network to start turning your wish list into a reality! << Back to Top

 

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

Happy Birthday, Taurus! After a month of diving deeper into your psyche and contemplating what your life has been about up until this point (and possibly letting go of some things that are no longer a good fit), it’s your time to party! With the Sun now shining down in your sign, this month is all about celebrating you & your true identity. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone and show your amazing skills and talents to the world while getting even clearer on your mission and what makes you so special. Be bold & ask for a raise, or launch a new branch of your business that will make your work life even more exciting & rewarding.

On the flip side, the Full Moon will be landing in your opposite sign of Scorpio. As you begin to scale new heights, old fears may come up to the surface to remind you of what you need to leave behind in order to become this bolder & brighter version of YOU. Say goodbye to the dark drudgery that tries to tell you that you’re not good enough – especially if these are words coming from your close romantic or business relationship issues with other people. Whether it is possible (or not) for you two to truly get along, this will be a great time to get stronger in your own self-worth and break out of other people’s limiting expectations of you. << Back to Top

 

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

After a month of exploring new ways to give & receive in your community, you’re ready to re-visit your raison d’être (your reason for being & doing anything in life). With the Sun now heading through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, be prepared to go deeper. If there are things you’ve always wanted to accomplish in your life + career, now is the time to ask ‘Why not me? Why not now?’. You were made for greater things than getting stuck in a stale work environment or any other parts of your life that have become too small for your bright boldness. Use this time to contemplate your next move and feel into the reality you truly want to create. Don’t forget to dream big! And then, go a level bigger. :)

Meanwhile, the Full Moon will be landing in Scorpio and your 6th house of Daily Routines. As you begin to realize what you really do (or don’t) want from your life + career, you’ll want to take a look at the parts of your daily life, work & health habits that have been keeping you from setting yourself up for success & feeling your best. It’s time to put your bad habits behind you and learn to celebrate your body, mind & spirit in much more supportive ways. Just try not to beat up on yourself along the way – it’s never too late to clean up your diet, re-organize your routines, & get on a better track! << Back to Top

 

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

After a month of expanding your career and identifying new opportunities for growth & expansion, you’re ready to bring what you’ve learned out into your community. You have always been very good at understanding how others are feeling & knowing just how to nurture others, so who around you is in need of your special skills, and how can you be of help? With the Sun cruising through your 11th house of Community Affairs, you may just find that finding new ways of giving back to others can even create a rewarding new avenue for you to receive in return.

But first you may want to look into the reasons why you have been afraid to receive in the past. With the Full Moon falling in Scorpio and your 5th house of Creativity, it’s time to release any issues that have been keeping you from allowing yourself to simply have FUN. Life isn’t just about working, you know! Allow yourself to let go of the need to always be so productive so you can tap into a better give & take relationship with your to do list. As you plan things you want to do for work, don’t forget to schedule in some non-negotiable ways to allow yourself to let loose and celebrate the finer things in life, too! << Back to Top

 

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

After a month of exploring new horizons, meeting new people, and/or learning new ways of being & doing, it’s time to take the information you’ve downloaded and put it into your career. As the Sun floats through Taurus and your 10th house of your Career Legacy, you’re ready to expand on the things you want people to know you for, and put more meaning & purpose into your money-making process. You may feel ready to start something new, but be warned that this Retrograde Season will most likely require several revisions before you stumble on the right course of action for you. You’ll be better off looking back to uncover the things you loved & enjoyed in the past in order to bring more of these things into your current workflow and go from there.

On the flipside, the Full Moon in Scorpio will be landing in your zone of Home & Family. The trick right now is really about learning how to balance your personal life + career in ways that feel exciting and stable for you, which is something we all have to work on at some point, but this month it’s especially true for you. Is your living situation working well for you, or is it time for a change? Like I said, with this Retrograde Season, you will probably want to avoid rushing into a big move, but you can begin to release the smaller issues that have been causing you friction or tension back at home and learn to let go. << Back to Top

 

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

After a month of strengthening the ways you earn & manage your financial resources, the Sun is now streaming through your 9th house of Travel, Education & Spirituality. It’s time to seek out new ways of exploring & being in the world and expand your horizons in exciting ways. What have you been wanting to learn more about? Perhaps that means taking a class or going on a trip somewhere that has always intrigued you. The things you end up discovering now may even be able to help you make your career more meaningful next month (in Gemini Season) when the Sun moves into your Career Zone!

On the other end of this, the Full Moon will be falling in your 3rd house of Networking, which is more about tapping into your current circle of friends or associates and learning from one another. You might find that some of your connections are no longer serving you, or that you’ve grown tired of talking about the same things with the same people. This is a good month to allow others to do their own thing and focus on what lights YOU up the most. Your old friends & co-workers will most likely still be there for you when you get back from your explorations (and plus, you will even be able to have some interesting things to add to the conversation!). << Back to Top

 

 

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

After a month of exploring new ways to strengthen your relationships with others, it’s time to bring your focus back to your practical matters. This month, the Sun will be zooming through your 8th house of Shared Resources, helping you re-think and re-imagine how you earn your money and manage your finances. Perhaps its time to think about investing in yourself through a Roth IRA, or putting a budget in place to keep more of your money where it belongs – in your pocket! Just watch out for risky moves – with so many planetary retrogrades still going on, it’s not a good time to go all in on anything too major.

By the Full Moon in Scorpio, which falls in your 2nd house of Values, you may find that the things you used to want are only holding you back now. Every day you keep growing as a person, but your spending habits may have stayed the same. It’s time to let go of old expectations or ways of thinking and remind yourself of what really matters to you NOW, so you can re-set your course toward a more fulfilling destination – like financial freedom! << Back to Top

 

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

After a month of re-setting your daily routines and finding new & better ways to support yourself in life and work, it’s time to look more deeply into the company you keep. As the Sun scoots through your 7th house of Close Relationships, get back in touch with your support group and find healthier ways of relating to the people around you. Perhaps this means strengthening a romantic relationship, or teaming up with a business partner to create a joint venture that can help support you both. Just be sure to get clear on how you really want to be expressing yourself before you include others in the decision-making process.

As the Full Moon falls in your sign and your 1st house of Identity, things may start to get a bit intense. This will be a time to let go of the person you used to be and release any self-beliefs that have been keeping you from relating to others in healthier & more fulfilling ways. As the sign that rules transformation, you should be no stranger to the idea of metamorphasis. You are worthy of so much more than your previous self may have been led to believe, and it’s NEVER too late to change & grow in your understanding of yourself and foster healthier relationships with the people you surround yourself with! << Back to Top

 

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

After a month of finding new & exciting ways to bring more fun and creativity into your life, it’s time to focus on the way you’ve been treating yourself. As the Sun moves through your 6th house of Daily Routines for Work & Health, you’ll want to revisit the way you go about your day and make sure it’s working in your favor. Perhaps that means getting back on track with your yoga practice, being more mindful about the meals you make, or limiting your working hours so they no longer take over your personal life. With the right support system in place at home, you can go so much further in your work!

On the other hand, the Full Moon will be falling in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits. This can be such a healing Full Moon for you, as you can finally let go of anything that has been freaking you out and begin to find more peace of mind. Nothing is usually as bad as you make it out to be, and you’ll be able to use this time to let down your guard and let go of any dark feelings that have been weighing on your mind so you can step back into the lighter & brighter side of life. << Back to Top

 

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

After a month of diving deeper into your home & family matters, I’ll bet you’re ready to bring more fun & enjoyment back into your life. With the Sun now sauntering through your 5th house of Creativity, this is the time to allow your sometimes overly strict demeanor to loosen up a bit and look to the more playful side of life. Instead of crowding your schedule with an endless list of to do’s, try lightening your load a bit and allowing more time to just BE, or maybe you just need to plan some non-negotiable time to go out on the town and have some fun. Try to treat your leisure time with as much urgency as you do your work projects and I think you will find that EVERYTHING will flow so much more sweetly for you this month. You may even come up with some extra creative ideas along the way!

With the Full Moon landing in your 11th house of Community, you will also want to take a deeper look at any issues that have been holding you back from showing up & sharing more of yourself with others. If there is some old drama leftover from your circle of friends, let it go (or let them go!) so you can come out of hiding with confidence. The world needs some more of that special magic that only you have to offer! << Back to Top

 

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

After a month of spreading your wings and finding new ways to network, collaborate, and celebrate your connections with others, it’s time to bring it back to your home turf. As the Sun moves into your 4th house of Home & Family, your focus will be brought to your comfort zone, security, and nurturing the people you love. Perhaps this means making your home more of a harmonious place to live, strengthening your ties with loved ones, or setting yourself up for a more secure future.

As the Full Moon falls in Scorpio and your 10th house of Career, you will also be asked to release any issues that have been holding you back from expressing yourself more fully in your career. Ultimately, it’s important for your home & work life to be in balance, and this moon will help you see all the ways that you have not been, so you can eventually discover a sweeter sense of serenity between the two. << Back to Top

 


Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

After a month of diving deeper into your values and what you really want out of your life + career (and why), you’re ready to put yourself out there and be brave enough to actually ask for it. With the Sun moving through your active 3rd house of Networking, this month will be all about meeting new people and/or revisiting old connections and finding new ways to learn & share with one another. Stand strong in what you really want, and the universe will help deliver the people you need on your side to help you make it a reality.

With the Full Moon falling in Scorpio and your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education, you will want to release any desires to escape or constantly crave what you don’t have. If you look around you, I think you’ll find that you already have everything you need & more to help you create your dream life. You just need to learn how to use what you’ve got and make the most of it! << Back to Top

Your Complete Guide to Retrograde Season

I’m sure you’ve probably heard of Mercury Retrograde, but did you know that every planet in our solar system goes retrograde at one point or another? During the month of April 2017 ALONE, we will be experiencing a crossover of 5 different planetary retrogrades including Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Jupiter & Pluto, some of which will last for many months.

When any planet goes retrograde, it appears to go backward in the sky – retracing its steps back through the same degrees of the zodiac wheel it had just passed over – and forcing you to take a second look at how you’re approaching particular areas of your life + career.

Although each planet goes into retrograde at different frequencies & lengths, they all require us to go back and take a deeper look at how we are handling things to see if there’s a better way – whether that’s in our communications, our values, our practical goals, our plan for growth, and how we want to change or transform next.

With so many happening at all once, this is really meant to be an exploratory period. Not a whole lot of things will be moving forward very quickly. In fact, there may even be plenty of delays to keep you busy. You may feel like these delays are taking you away from what you really want to be doing, but the truth is that the time & effort you put into exploring, reflecting, and tying up loose ends will pay off in dividends in the end and it could even help you discover a path that will end up being way better than you had first imagined.

Current + Upcoming Retrogrades

  • Mercury Retrograde: April 9 – May 3, 2017
  • Venus Retrograde: March 3 – April 15, 2017
  • Saturn Retrograde: April 6 – August 25, 2017
  • Jupiter Retrograde: February 5 – June 9, 2017
  • Pluto Retrograde: April 20 – September 28, 2017

Find out how to navigate these retrograde energies in your life + career below…

 

Mercury Retrograde in ♉️ Taurus

Mercury is the planet of communications, technology, and ruler of our overall mindset. It goes into retrograde motion for about 3.5 weeks around 3 or 4 times a year. This time, it will move backwards through the Earth sign of sensual, stable & harmonious Taurus.

This is a time to tend to the practical matters in your life + career, and focus on strengthening all of the fundamental building blocks that keep everything afloat.

But it may not be easy. Communications & technology may be extra unpredictable, as we are being reminded to tap into our intuitive nature and pay attention to the messages your soul has been trying to tell you when you were too busy moving from one thing to the next, and then the next, in your everyday work life.

The sign of Taurus also has to do with questioning your values. Do you still want what you think you want for your life & career? And has the way you’ve been working towards it actually been working for you? Perhaps it’s time for a reshuffle!

The sign Mercury Retrograde falls in for you on your chart can also help explain which area of life these issues may be coming up for you (see the latest Career Scopes to find yours!). For instance, Taurus is in my 3rd house of Networking, and here I am now on a trip back to my hometown to re-visit my relationships with family & friends and people I used to ‘network’ with for most of the time Mercury is retrograde.

 

Venus Retrograde in ♈️ Aries / ♓️ Pisces

Venus is the planetary ruler of Love & Money and only goes into retrograde motion once every 18 months, however it’s just about finished now. During this time, we have been reviewing our past & current issues around love, money, and our values. Perhaps you may have received money from an old project you had forgotten about, or an old lover or friend could have come back into the picture so you could revisit your relationship with them.

But after receiving love & money from the past, you may struggle to get clear on what you want for the future. What do you really desire, want & value? You can actually be more confused than normal about what it is that you want, or how you want to earn your money. It can seem like you’re not moving towards what you want, or you’re just floundering along hoping for the right idea to come along.

Trips to the beauty salon are ill-advised, as is cosmetic surgery, or any visual upgrades to your business, including a re-brand, as these things may require several more revisions to get it right. That’s why it’s especially important for us to cultivate self-love while Venus is in Retrograde. This is not about surface level love & beauty anymore, it’s a reminder to dive even deeper and find it from within yourself.

After Venus returns to its direct motion on April 15th, there will still be a shadow period for a few weeks where things may still be moving slowly, but they will eventually speed up again and you will finally be able to move forward with your love & money issues with much more clarity around your values & desires.

Note: Out of all of the retrogrades, Mercury & Venus Retrograde are the most likely to be noticed or felt because these planets are closer to earth. The further away planets – Saturn, Jupiter & Pluto – are less noticeable, however the day they go direct or retrograde can be unpredictable and can be especially noticeable when they are making any connections to your chart.

 

Saturn Retrograde in ♐️ Sagittarius

I often mention here that Saturn is like a strict teacher who makes us do the things we need to do to learn & grow to our potential. This is the planet that governs time, restrictions, constraints, karma, and the things that make life challenging, but also rewarding and worthwhile. It’s also the ruler of all things practical.

Saturn’s retrograde is an annual event and this year it will last until the end of August. During this time, we will be revisiting what practicality means to us. What are your true goals and why? Have you been working towards them in the right way and being disciplined enough in the way you structure your time? If not, how can you start to move toward your goals in the best possible way? It can actually be really hard to know the answers to these questions while this retrograde is happening, and that’s precisely what we’re meant to explore.

As Saturn moves backwards – very slowly – through the later degrees of the sign of Sagittarius, this retrograde period also has a lot to do with going back and re-discovering the Truth. Going back and uncovering the truth about our world, about us, and the people around us, we can begin remembering the truth about what we are here to do, achieve, and experience in this lifetime, so that we can begin to restructure our lives & careers to be in alignment with our truth.

While we are exploring these things, crystal clear clarity may be especially difficult to find. That is why it is usually NOT a good idea to start a new business during this time, but it can be very helpful for refining your business and thinking about how you can get it into greater alignment with your truth on more of a personal, internal level. The external rewards and movement will come later, after Saturn goes direct!

 

Jupiter Retrograde in ♎️ Libra

Jupiter has been in retrograde for a couple of months now already and will last until June 9th. Since it is known as the planet of luck, growth & abundance, we are currently questioning how we want to grow and what true abundance really means for us.

Although this is not a great time for huge expansion in your life or career, it can be very helpful for revisiting your studies, taking a class, brushing up on your skills, or taking a trip you’ve always wanted to go on – all things that allow you to explore your growth and may even help you begin to decide how you want to grow next.

You also want to be careful not to over-extend yourself. Abundance is a wonderful thing, but being too generous or over-compensating can be detrimental as you may not fully realize the consequences they may bring. It is easy to think you can handle more than you really can when Jupiter enters the picture – retrograde or not – so try to pace yourself!

With Jupiter being retrograde in Libra, the sign of relationships, it can also be a very exploratory time for seeing where you stand with others as well as with the relationship you have with yourself. How do you want your close business & romantic relationships to grow and expand? Which ones are worth putting your time & effort into, and which ones are only holding you back from getting in touch with your true desires for growth? These are some of the questions you may want to ask yourself during this time.

 

Pluto Retrograde in ♑️ Capricorn

Last but not least, we also have Pluto heading into retrograde for most of the rest of this year. Pluto is the planet of transformation and change. It also deals with death and re-birth, so it can signal endings as well as new beginnings.

With Pluto heading backwards in the practical earth sign of Capricorn, this has very much to do with the practical structures in our lives, big and small. On a big level, we’re talking huge government changes, which will be going on for quite a while – retrograde or not – because Pluto is the slowest moving planet in our solar system and will be in the structure-oriented sign of Capricorn until the year 2023.

On a more personal level, it has a lot to do with exploring the most practical way to transform or change your life & career to make it stronger and more supportive for you.

Perhaps the old systems that used to support you may no longer be as efficient as they used to be. Unstable support systems can come crumbling down to be rebuilt and renewed, which is exactly what we will be working on during the time that Pluto is in retrograde motion. The question is: Is there a better way we could be doing things & how do we need to change to do things better?

Pluto retrograde can also be excellent for healing and cleansing your body, mind & spirit. While you may not be able to control others’ actions, it can be easier to harness your own sense of self-control to break old habits that are no longer serving you and address issues that have long been wearing on you.

 

If you’d like to dive deeper into how this Retrograde Season will be specifically affecting you and your business throughout the year, I welcome you to book a 1-on-1 astrology session where we can go even deeper into the areas of your life & career these retrogrades are taking place in and how you can learn navigate these times with greater ease and understanding, so you can actually use these reflective times to your advantage!

Want to know the quickest & most efficient way to maximize your time in your life + career? 
AVOID the VOID. And by that, I mean the Void Moon. You may have seen me mention in my posts or forecasts that these are the absolute worst times to move forward on productive tasks.

But what does this really mean, and why does it happen? In this post, I’m going to take a moment to lay it all out for you so you can understand this strange phenomenon on a more practical level and learn to use Void Moons to your advantage in your life + career.

 

What is a Void Moon?

A Void Moon is actually a shorter phrase for a ‘Void of Course’ moon. As the moon moves into a new sign in the zodiac every 2.5 days or so, there is an energy break in between signs when the moon is not making any “aspects” or connections with any of the other planets.

You see, the Moon is like a big, magical satellite. Normally, it reflects the energies from the other planets and zaps them down to us on Earth… except during a Void Moon! It’s usually up to the Moon to trigger events in our lives and move us forward, but during a Void Moon there is no energy to trigger the events along. It’s like all that energy is just floating in space!

A Void Moon can last anywhere from 20 minutes to 14+ hours depending on the current configuration of the planets in relation to the Moon, and during this time, plans tend to go awry.

Launches or presentations fall flat, your meetings go nowhere (or worse, you end up getting stood up!), shopping trips result in a trip back to the ‘Returns’ desk or coupons can get denied, and it is generally quite difficult to move forward in a productive manner on ANYTHING you’re working on, unless it has to do with following a normal routine, cleaning up or de-cluttering, or finishing up something you’ve already started.

For instance, I no longer allow my astrology readings to be scheduled during Void Moons because there almost always tends to be scheduling issues or miscommunications. Since I want my readings to be as helpful & powerful as possible, I skip the Void Moons at all costs!

 

How to Work with Void Moons

Obviously, it’s important to know about Void Moons, because if you have a lot going on in your life + career, you can’t really afford to spend your time doing things that won’t matter in the long run.

So, what are you supposed to do instead?

Generally, Void Moons are actually very GOOD times for going within and meditating, brainstorming ideas, journaling, resting, or taking a long lunch to casually catch up with established friends or family (since there is usually no special agenda present in these types of interactions).

Look at Void Moons as a permission slip to take off work early for the day, have an extra long morning coffee break, or give yourself the okay to head off to a matinee film instead of pushing through a project that probably won’t end up working out that day anyways.

Void Moons can also be good for following a normal routine, and that includes cleaning or straightening up (since those things have to be done every day anyways), as well as traveling by bus, plane or any other form of transportation that runs on a set schedule the driver already follows every day.

The good news about Void Moons is that you no longer have to beat yourself up when things aren’t going your way! It really proves that not so great things happen to all of us, and NO ONE is exempt from this blow at our attempts to seem ‘perfect’ and like we have it all together all the time (it just isn’t true, anyways!).

You just don’t want to plan anything important on or during the Void Moon… and that includes promotions, client meetings, shopping trips, making big decisions, committing to new things, or planning a new project. Even if something seems like a good idea at the time, chances are the project won’t have the extra oomph behind it to help it turn into a successful reality.

Void Moons through the Signs:

Each void moon has its own way of affecting us depending on which sign it is crossing into when it officially becomes void, and some of the signs can be worse for certain activities over others. Some examples of this can be found below:

 

VOID MOON into ♈️ Aries

AVOID… Starting new projects as following your impulses can lead you astray. Not good for judged competitions, athletics, promoting yourself, or pitching new ideas. However, on the flipside, you can wait until the moon is no longer void in Aries to have extra luck doing all of the things I just listed above since they are all activities that have to do with Aries.

VOID MOON into ♉️ Taurus

AVOID… Planning meetings about money, working on money related tasks, trips to the beauty salon, or trying to cook a new recipe you’ve never made before for an important dinner. Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of Beauty, Love & Money… and yes, food, so try to wait until the moon is fully in Taurus to work on stabilizing your finances or finding success through artistic activities.

VOID MOON into ♊️ Gemini

AVOID… Socializing with important people you’re trying to impress, teaching others new things, speaking or presenting ideas, or planning significant social gatherings. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communications & technology, so you may want to try to avoid updating your website or backing up your computer, too.

VOID MOON into ♋️ Cancer

AVOID… Designing or re-decorating your home, hosting important guests, discussing long-term financial security matters, or trying to have a heart-to-heart with someone as emotional conversations may not be as productive as you would hope. Domestic activities are better left for after the moon has fully dipped into Cancer (and out of the void).

VOID MOON into ♌️ Leo

AVOID… Seeking recognition for your talents, giving a generous gift, making an offer on a new venture, rehearsing or performing, or leading a workshop or seminar. Leo rules the spotlight, which unfortunately may not take so kindly to your kind & generous nature until after the void.

VOID MOON into ♍️ Virgo

AVOID… Organizing important details, going to doctor’s visits, providing a service to others, or partaking in progressive healing work. You are better off waiting until after the void moon is over to engage in any type of hands on technical work as well.

VOID MOON into ♎️ Libra

AVOID… Socializing at business functions, fixing relationship issues, mediating arguments, or designing graphics for your business that you would like to be well-received by others. Libra also rules law, so you will want to avoid meetings with a lawyer or any other professional services that require diplomacy or making a good impression on others.

VOID MOON into ♏️ Scorpio

AVOID… Research work, doing taxes or accounting, or creating fine art. Scorpio rules the dark underbelly of security and creativity, yet the Void Moon can make more it difficult to uncover the truth or find the right resources to work with.

VOID MOON into ♐️ Sagittarius

AVOID… Booking tickets for a flight, planning an adventure, signing up for a class, undertaking spiritual pursuits, or trying to communicate with another culture, as these are all things that are ruled by Sagittarius.

VOID MOON into ♑️ Capricorn

AVOID… Trying to complete practical work related to finances, organizational structures, hiring new people, or managing others. You will be better off tying up loose ends than starting up a new endeavor.

VOID MOON into ♒️ Aquarius

AVOID… Presenting new ideas, community projects, working with your friends, studying or sharing New Age information, or partaking in radical or unusual undertakings.

VOID MOON into ♓️ Pisces

AVOID… Committing to a dreamy new idea, creating a new spiritual or artistic project, getting to the bottom of an emotional matter, giving others advice, or asking others for advice as things may not be as clear as you would like them to be.

Monthly Moonscope for April 2017

This month’s theme: Independence vs. Cooperation ~

As we begin our new astrological new year in the sign of ♈️ Aries, our creative engines are beginning to rev up! There is SO much going on in Aries right now… with a total of 4 planets jetting through this fiery and inspirational sign, there can also be a lot of impulsive energy, too.

After last month’s theme of slow & emotional endings, this month’s theme of beginnings will seem so much more fast-moving and ferocious. This is a time to remind yourself of your passions, so you can grab hold of them and jet off to the next level of your life + career!

What we will find out throughout this month, however, is that achieving our wildest desires will require both a strong sense of independence and cooperation. With every great idea for the future, comes a compromise and a chance to find more harmony and balance with others.

The balance between these two sides is one of the major themes we’ll be exploring during this moon cycle! Read on for more…

 

🌚 NEW MOON in Aries // March 27, 2017 @ 7:57 pm PT / 10:57 pm ET / 3:57 am GMT (28th) / 12:57 pm AEDT (28th)

Independence allows you to pursue your own unique passions your way. Remember in school, how your teacher would tell you to keep your eyes on your own paper? The advice for you when setting this month’s intentions is to FOCUS. ON. YOURSELF. You alone hold the key to unlocking your potential!

With this New Moon in Aries, we are being reminded of the power we hold inside ourselves, so we can spark new ideas for the future that will be like jet fuel for our desires and drive us forward like never before.

Deep down, you know you have something inside that gets you excited. A crazy idea. A big dream that you’re not sure could ever happen, but you would be so thrilled if it did. Maybe it’s something no one else seems to understand. But what if this idea could become real? If it lives inside you, then you must have some belief that it’s something you might actually be able to pull off.

This is the time to forget what others are saying or doing and just DO YOU. Only you know what you’re capable of. Only you know what you dream of, and what truly makes you happy and fulfilled in your life’s work. Other people can only tell you their own opinion… but who made them boss? YOU are the boss, at least the boss of yourself. So, boss, what’s your plan?

On this New Moon, some great questions to ask yourself are:

  • “What new ideas for the future have I been wanting to spark?”
  • “What new changes in my life can I make to break out of the old me and into the new me?”
  • “What type of things light me up most in my life + career, and how can I do more of THAT?”
  • “What do I truly desire to bring into being in this world next?”

This New Moon will culminate in a Full Moon in Aries on October 5, 2017. Imagine what big things you want to manifest by then and focus your intentions on it for the 24 hours after the New Moon is exact.

 

 

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Libra // April 10, 2017 @ 10:08 pm PT / 1:08 am ET / 6:08 am GMT / 3:08 pm AEDT

Cooperation allows us to find greater harmony in our relationships. What would this world be without the company of others? Like it or not, we share this planet with billions of other human beings. And we depend on each other, for happiness, and meaning, entertainment, and understanding.

Our Full Moon in Libra will be about removing any obstacles that are keeping us from bringing forth our best selves in our relationships with others.

It’s important to act from your heart to bring your passions alive, but how can you fully enjoy your success unless you are including others in the process – and allowing them to bring their unique perspective to your vision while still being gracious and knowing that you don’t have to do it exactly the way they say, either?

Even though we all have our own unique point of view and perspective, our lives are more harmonious when we can come together and compromise when it comes to creating the world we all live in together. But it’s also in owning and understanding our own authentic voice that we can better get along with others in our lives and make the world a better place for all!

On a wider scale, this Full Moon will be the culmination point of the New Moon in Libra which occurred back on September 30, 2016. Look back for a moment… what did you wish for then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

 

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “Where do I need more beauty, love & harmony in my life and/or relationships?”
  • “How can I become a better friend / lover / partner / co-worker / teammate / co-creator while still maintaining my own unique sense of individuality?”
  • “How can I compromise with others to make my work situation more harmonious for everyone?”
  • “What is keeping me from having more harmony & balance in my career and how can I overcome this?”

The next New Moon will fall on April 26/27, 2017 in Taurus.

Aries Season: March 21 – April 19 ~

Happy astrological new year! As the seasons change from Winter to Spring in the Northern Hemisphere (and Summer to Fall in the South), we move from dreamy & sensitive ♓️ Pisces – the last sign in the zodiac – into active, passionate, and idea-sparking ♈️ Aries (the first)!

Aries is a fiercely independent sign that loves to be active, follow their passions, promote what they love, and spread new ideas around like contagious magic fairy dust.

After all, Aries is ruled by our action planet Mars, so the energy this month will be motivating us to keep our eyes on our own paper, take charge of our own lives & careers, and stand up to celebrate the unique individuals we all are.

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

Happy birthday, Aries! After a month of trying to decide what really matters to you in your life + career, it’s finally your time to shine. Now the Sun will be zooming right through your 1st house of Identity, sending you on a 4-week adventure to re-establish your goals and put new dreams into motion for the future. The New Moon will kick off in your sign on March 27/28th, heralding in your own personal new year – but the Full Moon will land in your opposite sign of Libra on April 10/11th, reminding you to put the focus back on to your relationships with others (and not just yourself). A steady balance is the goal here, so as fired up as you may feel this month, you will most likely find yourself needing to make some compromises with others, too.

With Saturn – the planet of practical matters – now going retrograde in your 9th house of Travel, Education & Spirituality, you will be spending most of the next 2 seasons re-discovering the deeper truth behind your plans & goals. Use this time to look for any missing practical details that you may have over-looked before! And finally, with Mercury – the planet of communications & technology – going retrograde in your 2nd house, you will be spending most of April re-thinking your true values and making any much-needed course corrections so you can receive what you are wanting in your life + career most. It’s a big month for you, so don’t forget your self-care, Aries. A steady exercise routine will help you keep stress levels down so you can take on the world with your usual exuberance fully intact! << Back to Top

 

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

After a month of mingling with your community and finding new ways to be of service to others with your creativity, it’s time for a major reflection period. The Sun will be gliding through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits this month, helping you get back in touch with your deeper instinctual desires and impulses. With BOTH Mercury Retrograde & Venus Retrograde heading backwards through YOUR sign for much of April, re-thinking and re-viewing who you are, why you do what you do, and what you truly desire & value will be a huge theme for you now!

To top it all off, Saturn will begin its annual retrograde in your 8th house of Business, helping you re-visit ways to make your financial situation work for you in more practical ways for most of the Spring & Summer (Fall & Winter if you’re closer to Australia). With the Full Moon in Libra landing in your 6th house, it’s going to be especially important for you to support your health & daily routines so you can keep a clear mind during all of this inner upheaval. This too shall pass as the Sun will head into your sign next month, aiding you in bringing what you learn during this time out into the open to create a new beginning that feels more in alignment with the deepest parts of your true self. Ah, sweet authenticity! << Back to Top

 

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

After a month of expanding your career vision and learning to find better balance between your work & home worlds, it’s time to extend your lens beyond yourself to include your greater community. With the Sun cruising through your 11th house, you’ll be exploring new ideas for giving back & helping others using your own special blend of creativity. But with the Full Moon landing in your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, the trick for you during this moon cycle will be to balance your desire to be of aid to others and your desire to express yourself in a way that truly lights you up from within, too.

Meanwhile, the two latest planets going into retrograde this month – Mercury & Saturn – will be spinning you right around so you can reflect back on what you truly value in life on a deeper soul level (for the next 4 weeks) AND re-formulate a concept of which relationships in your life are the most practical for you based on the things you truly want to achieve (for the next 5 months). Suddenly your conversations may naturally dive into a deeper octave, as you seek to contemplate the inner truths that are normally comfortably hidden behind surface-level chatter. Best advice: A good sense of humor will be your best asset and the key to keeping your creativity alive this month. << Back to Top

 

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

After a month spent widening your playing field and opening your horizons through travel, spirituality or higher learning, it’s time to settle on a practical plan of action. This month, the Sun will be setting off fireworks in your 10th house of Career & Legacy. Luckily, the Sun will be joined soon afterward with career blessings from Venus, the planet of love & moolah. So, what is the work you really want to be remembered for? It’s your time to clear a path towards your loftiest goals to receive some more worthwhile rewards.

Two upcoming retrogrades will be helping you go back and reflect on a couple of important life areas. Saturn will be heading retrograde for 5 months in your 6th house of Work, Health & Daily Routines, helping you craft a more practical plan for the support systems you use to support yourself on a daily basis. And Mercury will go retrograde for 4 weeks in your 11th house of Community, helping you fix any issues that are keeping you from interacting with your friends and greater community in a friendlier manner. Although this will probably be a busy month for you, the key is going to be to keep your roots planted firmly in your home life, so that your branches can reach even greater heights when they bloom. << Back to Top

 

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

After a month of pulling strings to get your finances in check, you’re ready to venture out into the great unknown. As the Sun crosses through your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education over the next month, it’s time to explore your curiosities, make new connections, widen your horizons, and loosen the constrictions in your daily lifestyle. With the Full Moon falling in your 3rd house of Networking, it will also be important for you to remember there is still value to be found in supporting your long standing friendships & connections, so don’t feel like you have to completely ditch the old for the new.

As Mercury catapults backwards through your 10th house of Career & Legacy, this will be a month for re-thinking what you are really working towards in your life + career and how you really want to be remembered in the world. Obstacles may come up to help you make decisions on where you should be putting your focus next. Here’s a hint: With Saturn also heading backwards until the end of August in your 5th house of Creativity, your projects will be continually tested for their ‘fun factor’. You naturally glow, Leo, but when you’re doing what you really love, you’ll find that your light expands even further (& with less actual ‘work’ on your part)! << Back to Top

 

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

After a month of re-balancing your relationship needs with your own, it’s time to focus on your finances. The Sun will now be soaring through your 8th house of Business, helping you get your money – and your systems for earning money – in tip top shape for the future. With the Full Moon falling in your 2nd house of Values, it’s now or never, so get real about your financial situation and what it’s going to take to afford the kind of life you really want to have.

In early April, Mercury will be spinning backwards for its seasonal retrograde in your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Higher Education, vying with you to help you re-think where your true curiosities really lie and what you want to experience & discover in your life + career next. With Saturn heading retrograde in your Home & Family zone until the end of August, you may also be reviewing the long-term practicality of your current home & family situation.  Focus on deciding on & envisioning what you truly desire. It may be difficult at first, but once Venus finally goes direct, your vision of what you value will be your guiding light to help you work towards the shinier lifestyle you’ve been craving. << Back to Top

 

 

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

After a month of re-defining your daily routines & support systems, your attention now shifts on to your close ties with others. The Sun will be shimmying through your 7th house of Relationships, and you may be looking at linking up with a new partner or deepening your connection with someone who has already been on your side in the past. However, with the Full Moon falling in your sign & your 1st house of Identity, you will need to be careful not to lose your SELF in the process. Your ruler, Venus, is still retrograde in your love & partnership zone until mid-April, so relationship issues may not feel totally clear to you until then. Focus on working on your side of the puzzle first and the rest will come together in time.

Meanwhile, there are two other retrogrades you should be aware of this month. The infamous Mercury Retrograde will be heading backwards in your 8th house of Business, crossing the communication wires with co-workers and clients, yes, but ultimate delivering a message to help you re-think and eventually improve the way you earn & manage your money for the future. Saturn will also be heading retrograde in your 3rd house of Networking, asking you whether or not your current friendships & community members really reflect your practical goals in life or if you’re needing to make upgrades. The people you surround yourself with on a constant basis can make or break your greatest ambitions for your career, so try to choose your company wisely! << Back to Top

 

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

After a month of exploring what it means for you to have fun and express your more youthful side in your creativity, it’s time to get back to the basics. The Sun will be drifting through your 6th house of Work, Health & Daily Routines for the next 4 weeks, helping you re-imagine and upgrade the way you go about your day and the things you do to support your wellbeing & success. With the Full Moon landing in your 12th house, however, every action you take to support yourself will need to be based on a deeper underlying goal or mission if your habits are to stick. Use this month to tap into your deeper soulful desires and build your daily rituals around them.

Meanwhile, Mercury Retrograde will be crossing wires and putting up roadblocks in your closest relationships for most of April. This will SO not be a good time to sign a binding contract with a business partner or commit to a long-term love connection. In addition, Saturn will be beginning its annual retrograde journey through your 2nd house of Values until late August, to help you see if you’re really doing what you need to in order to get what you want most in life. Review all of your options and try to stay open-minded and practical, as your decisions now could affect you far into the future! << Back to Top

 

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

After a month of reminding yourself of the pivotal importance of keeping a happy & well-organized home to help support your family in order to support a more balanced career for yourself, you’re on to more creative endeavors. With the Sun prancing through your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, this month will be all about reawakening your “joie de vivre” (or joy of life). Let go of work for a moment and let yourself play! The only thing is that the Full Moon will be falling in your 11th house of Community, asking you if there is some way you can use this newly awakened creative spark to help others, too. You may find that harnessing your creativity can not only help YOU come alive & make your life more exciting, but it can also give you more fuel to use to inspire or educate others.

Meanwhile, Mercury will be going retrograde in your 6th house of Daily Routines. If there are any areas of your health, working schedule, or daily rituals that you’ve been neglecting for some time, this month will help bring it out into the open to be dealt with now. Saturn will also start heading retrograde this month in your 1st house of Identity. You may have trouble deciding the most practical way to present or promote yourself for a while, but these explorations can help pave the way for a deeper understanding of your true self – and the kind of person you’re really NOT – in the long run. << Back to Top

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

After a month spent making new & old connections amongst your network, your focus this month is now shifting on to your personal life. As the Sun sprints through your 4th house of Home & Family, a deep spring cleaning may be in order, or even a full-on change of house! You’re also being reminded of the importance of a nurturing & supportive family. Have you been working too much to give them your full attention lately? With the Full Moon landing in your 10th house of Career, it can bring up some changes that may need to be made to keep your work from taking over your brain, so you can spend more time on matters of the heart.

As Mercury begins spinning backwards into your 5th house of Creativity in early April, the barriers that have been keeping you from having more fun & enjoyment in your life + career will be showing up to be cleared & re-imagined. It can seem super frustrating at the time, but ultimately so therapeutic for you to learn to let down your guard and release your need to control every outcome. Your ruler Saturn will also be heading retrograde starting this month, but this time in your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits. This is the time to explore & cultivate more discipline around following the path you feel you need take to achieve your deeper calling in life! It’s true, this is probably no small feat. Just don’t forget to leave some room in your schedule for fun. :) << Back to Top

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

After a month of exploring what you really desire and value in your life + career as well as dealing with any issues within your financial situation that have been holding you back from achieving these things, it’s time to get out and mingle. The Sun will now be sauntering through your 3rd house of Networking, opening the gates for you to make new connections with others who can help you bring your ideas to life. But with the Full Moon landing in your 9th house of Travel, Spirituality & Education, you may first have to let go of a fantasy that hasn’t been working in your best interests.

As Mercury spins backwards through your 4th house of Home & Family for most of April, you’ll be put to the test to re-think and review what is needed to make your house more of a home & get closer with your family. Meanwhile, with Saturn heading retrograde through your 11th house, your zone of Community & Friendships (and your specialty!), you’ll also be taking the next 5 months to re-imagine what a practical community should really look & feel like as well. Be sure to consider if the contributions you’re making to the bigger picture are really sustainable & rewarding for you, too! << Back to Top

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

After a month of re-emerging into the world as your true self during Pisces season, it’s time to move on to the next phase of life. This month, the Sun will be drifting through your 2nd house of Values. What you desire most in life will be coming into question, as well as what you need to DO to get it. With the Full Moon in Libra landing in your 8th house of Business, any insecurities within your financial situation or joint resources will be coming up to be cleared, so you can build a stronger foundation to help yourself receive more of what you really value most in the future.

Meanwhile, Mercury Retrograde will be crossing backwards through your 3rd house of Networking. This is going to make communications with the people around you extra hazy for most of April, so don’t forget to triple-check every e-mail you write and try to wean yourself off from multi-tasking for a while! Lastly, with Saturn heading retrograde in your 10th house of Career, your job will be to figure out which path for your career will be the smartest & most in alignment with your true goals and then become VERY disciplined in working towards this until the end of August. << Back to Top

Monthly Moonscope for March 2017

This month’s theme: Imagination vs. Logic

Welcome to the last month in the zodiac! Even though 2017 has been going strong for a while, this month is very powerful for both endings & beginnings, as the Sun moves from the last sign in the zodiac – ♓️ Pisces – to the first – ♈️ Aries.

I’m sure you have already set some amazing intentions for this year (like… back in January or December!), but the Pisces New Moon Solar Eclipse is an opportunity for renewal.

In the last 2 months, you have been learning what it’s like to go after those goals of yours, and now you are probably clearer on what you want – and smarter about what it is really going to take to get there. With this Super New Moon, you can finetune your goals and begin to envision them actually coming true for you this year. And since this time is so lucky, it could even manifest extra quickly for you!

What we will find out throughout this month, however, is that setting new goals takes both a heavy dose of imagination and logic. With every ending comes fertile ground for dreaming up a new beginning, but eventually your project will require a little more than wishful thinking to move things forward proactively.

The balance between these two sides is one of the major themes we’ll be exploring during this moon cycle! Read on for more…

 

 

🌚 NEW MOON SOLAR ECLIPSE in Pisces // February 26, 2017 @ 6:52 am PT / 9:52 am ET / 2:52 pm GMT / 1:52 am AEDT (27th) 

Imagination fuels a new beginning. You know that phrase, “Shoot for the moon & at least you’ll land among the stars”? This is time for dreaming BIG, letting go of your past limiting beliefs (that made think you weren’t worthy of your dreams), and really feeling into what you want to accomplish on a bigger level this year.

With this New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces, we are letting go of any ideas that we can’t be successful, and learning to go with the magical flow of the universe.

Imagine how great it will feel to have accomplished your dreams! Envision what your experience of achieving it may feel like, and what kinds of things will have to change to make it come true.

When you surrender yourself to the will of the cosmos, you’ll find that things work out much more quickly for you. Your thoughts do become things, but you are always naturally heading in the right direction overall. It is only your fear & disbelief that causes resistance and slows you down from reaching your dreams. Let go, let go, let go.

Pisces are not only associated with surrendering and sacrificing yourself to a greater cause, but unfortunately it can also be about sabotaging yourself if you feel like you’re not really worthy of your goals. Often times we are secretly harboring a fear of success, and this is the time to let this go and make way for bright new beginnings in 2017.

 

On this New Moon, some great questions to ask yourself are:

  • “How can I make the year 2017 legendary for my personal & business development?”
  • “When I look back on this year, what do I really want to have accomplished?”
  • “What limited fears or beliefs are standing in my way of reaching success?”
  • “In what ways have I been subconsciously sabotaging my efforts to reach success?”
  • “How can I learn to let go & surrender to the direction the Universe has been guiding me in?”

This New Moon will culminate in a Full Moon in Pisces on September 6, 2017.

 

 

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Virgo // March 12, 2017 @ 7:54 am PT / 10:54 am ET / 2:54 pm GMT / 1:54 am AEDT

Logic finds a way to get the job done. Virgos don’t just envision their dreams and hope for the best. They analyze ALL of the details involved in their goal and make solid decisions on how to achieve it consiously and realistically.

Our Full Moon in Virgo is about adding a dash of realness to your vision. NOT to prove to you that it can’t happen, but to give you the practical insights to make sure it can.

Virgos are super skilled at pinpointing the logic and practicality in any situation, and they have no problem getting rid of anything that isn’t working to better support what is. They are natural born analysts and they know how to get the job DONE.

But what both Pisces & Virgo are really ALL about is serving others. You will want to use the time around the Full Moon to cut out the fluff and anything else holding you back from utilizing your gifts and talents for a bigger purpose. Give back and I think you will find that you will be rewarded in greater ways than you can imagine!

On a wider scale, this Full Moon will be the culmination point of the New Moon Solar Eclipse which occurred back on September 1, 2016 in the sign of Virgo. Look back for a moment… what did you wish for then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

 

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “How can I seek a more realistic perspective on what I’ve been working on?”
  • “What part of my vision do I need to get rid of in order to focus on what really matters?”
  • “What is the real point of the work I’m doing & how can I cut to the chase?”
  • “How can I use my innate gifts & talents to serve society?”

The next New Moon will be on March 27/28, 2016 in Aries.
