Career Scopes for December 2017

As this year comes to a close, we’re wrapping it all up with an intense grand finale of cosmic influences set to prepare us for a whole new cycle of transformation in 2018.

This month, as the Sun continues to move through the sign of ♐️ Sagittarius, joined with Mercury in Retrograde, we are meant to re-think our concept of what it means to be authentic and stand fully in our splendid sense of truth. Our Super Full Moon in Gemini on December 3rd (as photographed above by my dad!) brought to light the areas where we are needing to communicate our truth even more clearly as Mercury Retrograde helps us re-think what to do with this information next!

What has everything this year been leading you toward? Out of all of the lessons and adventures you have been through in 2017, what is meant to carry on into 2018? And what are you finally ready to leave behind in your life & career as you turn the page into a new year?

One of the biggest astrological events of the whole year – which may finally make everything startingly clear – will come later this month when Saturn moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn, aligning with the Sun two days later, just as Mercury Retrograde finally comes to an end.

Why is this all such a big deal? Because Saturn only changes signs once every 2.5 years and this strict teacher planet shows us where we’re currently being challenged the most – and how we are meant to become more responsible and disciplined! The days leading up to this major time of change will help us all see how far we’ve come since 2015 and begin to show us what our next round of lessons will require from us.


How will all of these crazy cosmic influences be affecting your zodiac sign specifically? Find out below…

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

What’s your next big move, Aries? As the Sun and Mercury Retrograde move through your zone of Travel & Higher Education for most of this month, you may be wondering which great new horizons to set your sights on next. Perhaps you are dreaming of going off on an adventure that will take you across borders or are simply in the mood to stretch your mindset and add something new to your normal repertoire when it comes to the products or services you provide through your work. One thing is for sure – this is your month to explore! Just try to be cautious about making any huge decisions too quickly as Mercury can add a major element of confusion to the mix.

With the Super Full Moon in Gemini lighting up your Social Networking sector, you may have manifested an exciting new collaboration with someone who can help you reach your goals even faster. Or perhaps you may have realized that the people you thought were your friends are no longer on your same level! This larger than life mega moon was meant to drudge up any and all issues within your communications with others so you can clear the playing field and start fresh for 2018.

Probably the most major thing happening for you this month will be on December 19th as strict teacher Saturn moves into Capricorn. For the past 2.5 years, Saturn has been making you get clear about how you need to grow and expand to become a more well-rounded human. Now, Saturn will be making waves in your Career Zone, helping you set up powerful systems and strategies to build a firmer foundation for your higher calling. You may have to face some major challenges & difficulties to get there, but Saturn always makes it worth your while!

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

How is your money mindset at the moment? This month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are zooming through your zone of Business & Finance, helping you revise the efforts you are putting in to earn your money so you can find smarter ways to boost them up. This will probably require you to go back to the books and face the music when it comes to A) how much you’re making now, B) how much you’re spending, and C) what it’s really going to take to get you where you want to go. Then you can work on streamlining the process so you can start off 2018 with a clear vision of your future path to success.

After the Super Full Moon in Gemini lit up your area of love, money, and self-worth on December 3rd, this may have helped you reveal the aims & aspirations you’re truly craving deep beneath the surface as well as uncovering the fears & limiting beliefs that have been holding you back from reaching out and grabbing them. The next step? Being able to ask for what you want and need with clarity and confidence.

The grand finale of this year will come for you on December 19th as Saturn moves into the next chapter of your chart. Over the last 2.5 years, you’ve already had quite a lot of work to do when it came to your business efforts and creating a greater feeling of financial security. Now, your challenge will be to expand your mindset and become more open to learning new things that can enhance your life & business even more. It may sound fun to embark on a totally new adventure, but Saturn doesn’t always make things quite so easy and you may need to let go of many fears and outdated concepts all along the way.

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

Hey Gemini, are you able to ask for help when you need it? The Sun & Mercury Retrograde are cutting straight through your realm of relationships this month. You may have been re-thinking who you want to keep by your side and how much they truly add to (or possibly even subtract from) your life. It’s high time to balance the scales between me vs. we and get clear on what you really require to feel good about your relationships with others whether we’re talking romantically or work-wise.

The best way to approach your relationships with others now is by first knowing who you are and what you need from someone else to truly make you feel complete. Then, have the courage to speak from the heart and make your demands with grace. That Super Full Moon in your sign on December 3rd certainly has not made this month very easy for you when it comes to your emotional wellbeing! On the bright side, it may have helped you get ultra clear on how you truly feel so you can make clearer decisions with your own personal goals for happiness in mind. Just be sure to think things through carefully and try to avoid making super impulsive moves that involve others until after the 22nd when your ruler Mercury turns direct.

Later on in the month, Saturn will be ending its 2.5-year reign through your realm of relationships which is even more of a reason why this area of your life may feel especially intense for you now. Luckily, the final days of this major transit may finally bring the resolutions & realizations you’ve been seeking. Next up, Saturn will move into your zone of Business & Finance which will bring many challenges over the next few years to help you make decisions to earn your money smarter instead of working harder.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

Are you doing your best to keep everything beautifully in balance? This month’s focus for you is on rethinking your ability to maintain equilibrium between your health, work, and daily routines as the Sun & Mercury Retrograde move through Sagittarius until December 20th. If you’ve been spending too much time at work – and not enough time on your self-care or overall sense of wellness – this is the time to find new & improved ways to flow more efficiently through your day. Remember… there are much better ways to boost your energy than downing a second cup of coffee! Strive to start your day with a wonderful ritual that sets your body, mind, and spirit up for success.

Meanwhile, our mega Full Moon in Gemini on December 3rd may have been rather unsettling for you as the sign that often feels the moon’s shifts and changes the deepest. Do you feel like all of your efforts are truly taking you towards a higher purpose? This has been an important time to get back in touch with the sweet song of your soul and release the parts of your life & career that are meaningless or mundane so you have more time to do what really matters most.

This has actually already been quite an important factor for you for quite a while as taskmaster Saturn tested your time management skills over the past 2.5 years to make sure your priorities are practical enough. On December 19th, your next 2.5-year challenge will begin, and this time it’s all about putting your closest relationships to the test. If there are people in your world who only seem to bring you down, it may be time to re-evaluate how much attention you really want to make available for those who don’t truly appreciate all of your efforts nearly as much as they should.

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

What are some ways you can find more joy? This month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are both illuminating your Fun & Creativity sector, helping you rethink ways to weave even more interesting concepts into your work to bring in a greater sense of intrigue. When you’re truly passionate about your work, it almost feels more like play! If there are some fun projects you’ve already had in the works, this may be a good time to go back to the drawing board and ensure your efforts are really taking you to the right places you actually want to go.

Our gigantic Super Full Moon in Gemini may have also brought important realizations around the work you would like to do to help others. Finding a balance between what others in your community want from you and what actually brings you the most bliss is truly what this month is all about. The goal, however, is to remember that people pay for your passion, so don’t bend over backward for others only to lose that luminous feeling of enthusiasm that draws others to want to work with you in the first place.

One of the biggest events – not just of the whole month, but the whole year – will come near the end of December as Saturn moves into your zone of Work & Daily Support. For the next 2.5 years, your mission, whether you choose to accept it or not, will be to streamline your workflow and get on track with a practical set of priorities that will allow you to keep all of the plates you’ve got spinning along more peacefully. This may mean narrowing down on the list of things that you deem most important to make more room for what is actually necessary to keep your life, career, and overall well-being in beautiful balance.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

Time to bring the ball home, Virgo. This month, both the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are vrooming through your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security, helping you revise your long-range plans and seek out a better way to set yourself up for success. If you’re looking to make a more comfortable home for yourself, this may require getting crystal clear on the dreamy lifestyle you’re truly visualizing and then taking a second look at your budget to see what you can do to inch your way closer over time. You may, however, want to wait on making any major moves until after your ruler Mercury moves back into direct motion on the 22nd.

Meanwhile, that crazy Super Full Moon in Gemini may have made quite a splash when it comes to how you look at your career. For some Virgos, this may have brought an exciting resolution to your quest for a more meaningful work situation, but if you’re still fed up with parts of your job that don’t seem to have an actual purpose, you may want to continue to consider ways you can change this. How can you refine your workflow to make a bigger, more purpose-driven impact on the rest of the world?

The last and final big event of the year will come around the third week of the month as Saturn moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn and your zone of Fun & Creativity for the next 2.5 years. This may sound like a blast at first glance, but it’s actually more about being responsible and disciplined around setting up structures in your life & career that will allow your creativity to come out and be seen by more people. I know you have some pretty amazing ideas you’ve been holding on to… now it will be time to actually take on the rather difficult (but incredibly worthwhile) task of making them happen!

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

It’s time to get your ideas out of your head and into the world! This month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are both moving through your Social Networking sector, helping you recognize hidden opportunities you may have missed in the past. Perhaps there are people around you who could help you get where you want to go even faster than you were expecting? Reaching out to the right ones to collaborate may be just the thing you need to get your message out to more people. Just be aware that Mercury Retrograde can jumble up your words & thoughts, so this may actually be a better time for testing the waters, weighing up all of the elements, and brainstorming rather than pressing the trigger right away.

After the Super Moon in Gemini shone its bright rays in the direction of your zone of Travel & Higher Education on December 3rd, you may have had some sudden realizations about the areas where you still feel you are in need of learning more. But just because you don’t have all of the answers doesn’t mean you can’t still be an expert! There are always going to be people out there who know so much less about a subject than you do and these are the precise people you are the best equipped to help.

Once we get towards the end of the month, Saturn will start trudging into Capricorn and your territory of Home, Family & Long-term Security. Over the next 2.5 years, Saturn will be bringing you a worthwhile mission to shore up your future investments. Ready or not, you will be required to get clearer on your future goals around bringing a greater sense of comfort and fulfillment into your personal life so you can figure out exactly what it will take to make them happen!

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

Now that Scorpio Season is fading into the distance, you’re finally moving back out in the world as a new version of you. This month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are crooning their way through your area of aims & aspirations, helping you figure out what you really want and what it’s going to take for you to reach your greater goals. Obviously, Mercury is not going to make this process incredibly straightforward or easy for you, but by December 22nd when it finally moves direct, you are likely to end up so much clearer than you ever were before.

That wild Super Full Moon on December 3rd may have also taken you for quite the ride as it fell in your zone of Business & Finance, illuminating any weak spots in your work plans so you can find a more logical way to fix them. Instead of getting bogged down in all of the daunting details, it’s important to start with the vision of what you actually want and then work backward in order to find a firmer way to move forward!

Meanwhile, one of the most major changes of the year will be heading your way on December 19th when Saturn moves into your Social Networking sector for the next 2.5 years. This will bring an important time for you to clear out the connections that no longer belong in your inner circle and invite in the right minds to help you collaborate your way toward a sweeter feeling of success.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Who is the person you are now ready to become? After an intense past month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are both moving through your sign in opposing directions. On one hand, you may be ready to break out of a rut and shift your focus toward a new way of life, but with Mercury Retrograde in the mix, the directions may still be unclear. Use this time to slow down and experiment with visualizing with many different ideas before you finally settle on the one path that feels the most true for you after Mercury moves direct on December 22nd.

Meanwhile, that Super Full Moon in Gemini on December 3rd was meant to reveal issues in your relationships you’ve been needing to revisit. You have come such a long way in this area over the past 6 months, but there may still be some challenges you still need to work through before you can completely lay them to rest. As you come to realize more & more about the person you want to be, any imbalances in your dealings with others can more easily be made right.

And if you’re hoping to read some good news in this month’s horoscope, then you may be quite relieved to know that our strict teacher Saturn – who has been in your sign and directly on your back – will finally be moving out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn. It has been an amazingly powerful last few years where you were basically forced to let go of any situations that were not truly meant for you and become more structured in the way you compose yourself out in the world. Now, it will be more about deciding what you really want, need, and desire and figuring out how to get it as Saturn trudges into your area of aims & aspirations next.

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

Get ready for some major shifts this month, Capricorn! The Sun & Mercury Retrograde are both moving through your Spirituality sector, putting you in what may sometimes feel like a tight place as you sort through your hopes, dreams, and fears and find your way toward greater clarity of purpose. Although your mind may feel like its racing at times, this is technically a resting period that will be best spent brainstorming and re-upping on your self-care.

You’re actually reaching the end of a groundbreaking 2.5 year period that has all about getting to the core of how you feel beneath the surface and what really matters most at the end of the day. As your ruler Saturn has moved ever so slowly through your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits, this has been an important time to unload emotional baggage that has been building up over the last few decades. Although it has not been light or easy, the deeper meaning it has brought forth will continue to be incredibly worthwhile on your journey into the next phase.

Later this month, Saturn will join the Sun as they both move into your sign. Most other signs would probably quiver in fear with the idea of this strict teacher planet’s gaze set so firmly in their direction, but you might actually enjoy the opportunity to get yourself together and finally show the world what you’re really made of. Pay attention to what comes up on December 21st as it will be an especially pivotal time to get clear on where you’re heading next and what will be required of you to get there.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

This month, the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are both on the move in your zone of Community & Friendship. It’s time to sort through all of the many voices in the crowd and decide how you can best be of service to those who need your help the most. You may want to consider new & interesting ways to get the word out about what you do online or put together an offline event to bring people together around a cause you wholeheartedly believe in. This time is all about reaching out and showing the value you can provide to others, but be aware that Mercury Retrograde can cause some confusion around communication & technology, so be sure to plan very carefully.

With that crazy Super Full Moon shimmering down its rays on your Fun & Creativity sector on December 3rd, this may have brought along the completion of a creative project you’ve been working on for what may feel like ages, as well as a feeling that perhaps you are now wanting to do something different to fuel your creative fires in the future. For now, start by looking around and asking what others really want or need to find your next big dose of inspiration!

Meanwhile, the tides are changing as Saturn moves into your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits for the next 2.5 years on December 19th. Over time, this may bring profound insights around deeper emotional issues you’ve been somehow sweeping under the rug for the last several years. Working with a coach, therapist, or finding a good friend to talk things out with can help you clear the air when it comes to limiting beliefs, hidden fears, or outmoded habits that are no longer serving you.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

It’s time to make yourself known, Pisces! This month, both the Sun & Mercury Retrograde are cruising through your Career Zone, helping you re-think the bigger impact you’d like to make on the world. Perhaps you’ll find that some of the areas you’ve been focusing your attention when it comes to the work you’re doing are in need of a change or upgrade. Just try to be open to new ideas & insights that may come up for you since Mercury Retrograde is truly all about downloading a message about something you may not have realized before, but can actually be very much to your benefit if you’re willing to shift and adapt your thinking to completely new levels.

With the Super Full Moon lighting up your zone of Home, Family, & Long-term Security on December 3rd, some hidden fears may have come up to the surface that may have made you somewhat uncomfortable about the state of your personal life. This has been such a major time of clearing out the psychic debris that has been weighing on you so you can start 2018 with a fresh outlook and a plan you can truly feel good about. Use the New Moon in Sagittarius on the 18th to quiet yourself and take apart all of your hopes, dreams, and fears and set a bold intention on where you would ideally like to see yourself in the future. Then ask the Universe for help to get you there!

The grand finale of the year will come as Saturn finally makes its big move out of your Career Zone, where it has been for the last 2.5 years, and into your Community & Friendship sector right before the new year. It has been a crazy few years for you that has been all about getting on track with a more fulfilling and strategic career that may have required a lot out of you, and now it will be time to take everything you’ve learned and set out to help even more people in your own special way.

Forecasting

Monthly Forecast for December 2017

Hello December! There are so many things still to wrap up as we finish the year that has been 2017. As this month starts off, the Sun is sauntering through the fun and freedom loving sign of ♐️ Sagittarius. This is a season that is about discovering new frontiers, following our sense of wanderlust, stepping into a greater sense of our authentic selves, and maybe even allowing ourselves to procrastinate a little as we daydream about the bigger picture ideas we would love to explore.

Of course, we also have Mercury Retrograde going on for most of this month from December 2nd – 22nd, and eventually the Sun is going to move into the sign of ♑️ Capricorn later in the month, which can add a bit more of a serious edge when it comes to business planning and getting ready to close out this year with clarity.

Astro Magic

How to Make the Most of Mercury Retrograde


Ah yes, the dreaded Mercury Retrograde. 
We hear about it all the time. That’s because Mercury Retrograde occurs 3-4 times a year and lasts for about 3.5 weeks each time. Just when you thought you had survived one… another one comes along!

First of all, in case you are new to this phenomenon, every planet goes into retrograde at some point or another. Although it looks like the planet is stopping and then moving backward on an astrology chart when it goes into retrograde, it only appears to be doing so in the sky. So, basically, Mercury Retrograde is like an optical illusion… but a powerful one that can potentially mess up your life, crash your computer, break down your car, and ruin your plans.

However, maybe it doesn’t have to be quite so bad? Maybe you can even learn how to love it – or at least learn how to make the most of it.

 

Here are 5 ways to make the most of Mercury Retrograde…

 

1. Use this time to finish up old projects.

Since Mercury is the planet of communications, messages, writing, technology, transportation, learning, and planning, a lot of things can go haywire if you try to push ahead with your future goals. Instead of frustrating yourself trying to make progress on new projects that just don’t want to move forward, you could take this time to catch up on old projects and cross off some old to do’s. Chances are there is a stockpile somewhere of things you still haven’t gotten around to doing, so this is the perfect time to catch up. Once Mercury Retrograde ends, you’ll have even less on your mind to hold you back from steaming full speed ahead.

 

2. Test and experiment with your ideas.

It is fairly common knowledge that Mercury Retrograde is good for all things beginning with “re”… renew, refresh, rejuvenate, rewind, reflect, and revise. Usually, the things that we start a week or two right before Mercury Retrograde and during will end up needing to be revised! So, instead of worrying about signing a lease (which, by the way, I have done during Mercury Retrograde, and it was not a big deal), be open to the idea that you may have to return to your ideas later on down the line to strengthen them even more (like, for instance, how you’re going to continue to find ways to pay for that lease).

In the meantime, you can use this time to experiment and test the waters. Collect information from your audience about what they want you to launch next. Do some research about your ideas before you just dive straight in to executing them. Take extra time to brainstorm and ask the universe if there are any other clues or details you’ve been missing.

 


 

🌟

Be open to the idea that you might not know all of the answers right now and more factors will be revealed in time.

 


 


3. Take every roadblock along your path as a sign.

Another thing that can be quite common when Mercury is in retrograde is that we end up needing to fix things. Maybe you’ve gotten a little bit behind on taking your car to the shop for a check-up or backing up your computer files. Or maybe an appliance that has never broken before suddenly starts causing you problems! Instead of looking at these annoying frustrations as a distraction from what you really want to be doing, look at them as a sign that you need to slow down and pay closer attention to the things you normally take for granted.

When Mercury is in direct motion, we can get caught up in the ‘go, go, go’ of everyday life. This retrograde time is meant for slowing down, and if you don’t take heed of this, sometimes the universe will just straight up make you. The good news is that, when you finally do return to whatever you were wanting to focus on instead of dealing with things gone awry, you will have a greater appreciation for when things do move along smoothly. Plus, perhaps the disruption in your schedule will lead you to discover a whole new path or idea you would have never thought of before!

 

 

4. Revisit your old memories. 

Another thing that can happen when we get swept up in the ‘go, go, go’ of everyday life is that we don’t take time to pause and think about how far we have come. Growth and personal development are amazing, but we can so easily get caught up in the idea of always achieving the next goalpost! This forward striving motion can definitely mess with your head after a while and blind you to the things that are already so wonderful. Mercury Retrograde is a good time to remember the good old days, to go back and visit family, to catch up with an old friend, go somewhere you haven’t been in a long time, rummage through your old photos or journals, and get a little bit sentimental for a while. The rest of the world will still be right back where you’ve left it when you’re done.

 

 

5. Give yourself lots of extra time.

Just being aware that Mercury Retrograde can cause crazy things to happen is good enough of a reason to take your time a little more. Leave early if you need to be somewhere at a certain time. Triple-check that you have everything you need if you need to travel (and by the way, traveling is not actually the worst thing to do during Mercury Retrograde… however it is planning a trip that can sometimes get tricky and is not necessarily recommended).

Maybe you were thinking about launching a new business offering and you’re feeling really eager to get it out the door. What would happen if you took your time to make it as amazing as possible? We can sometimes be prone to over-promising and under-delivering during this time, not realizing the roadblocks that we may be in for, so why not give yourself the extra leeway so you end up under-promising with the potential of over-delivering? You never know if you’ll hit a snag along your path – or realize there is a way better way of doing things that will end up taking you a little more time to get it just right!

 

 

IN CONCLUSION…

I always find that by the time Mercury Retrograde has ended, I’ve gotten so much clearer on what I’m really trying to achieve and accomplish. In the beginning, I think I know, but then by the end it can completely change – in a really good way.

So, try to be open to what happens during this time when not all may not be as it seems, and most importantly, try not to take it so seriously! It’s when we take things too seriously and fail to loosen our grip that we feel the most frustration. And it’s not always Mercury’s fault if things seem like they’re backfiring a bit – you may have just been in need of a new perspective. ;D

Career Scopes for November 2017

As we deepen into the ending of the year that has been 2017, the Sun begins transitioning out of serious-minded Scorpio and into studious Sagittarius this month, helping us ease out of the shadows of our soul and into the light-filled magic beyond.

Ever since the last week of October, we have been journeying into a quieter time of the year that has been all about inner transformation and getting in touch with how we feel deep beneath the surface. Are you being creatively fulfilled by your work? Or are there hidden pieces of you that are still longing to come through?

With the Sun moving out of ♏️ Scorpio and into ♐️ Sagittarius on November 22nd, we will finally reach the end of this inner journey to wholeness and begin a whole new adventure. After some of the heavy feelings have begun to dissipate and you’ve learned to let go of the things that are no longer bringing you joy, the exciting work of deciding what type of magic you’ll invite into your life & career next will officially begin.

Neptune will also finally be ending its long 5-month retrograde in Pisces later in the month to help us all become much clearer around our dream visions for the future and take some more solid steps to make it so. In the meantime, don’t be afraid to take an inventory of how fulfilled you’re really feeling with your work and have the courage to experiment with new ideas & make changes regardless of how you perceive others will take it. This is your life & your career – it’s your job and yours alone to make it absolutely amazing! ✨

(March 21 – April 19)

What will it take to get you where you want to be, dear Aries? This month, the Sun will be shining a bright spotlight on your business’ bottom line and your 8th house of Business & Finance. Managing your money and creating a secure safety net is an important focus for you at the moment, so if you’ve been somewhat hazy about how much money you’re making or just wishfully hoping you’ll reach your financial goals by the end of the year, then it’s high time to take another look at the actual numbers involved and brainstorm some exciting new ways to boost them up.

By the time the New Moon in Scorpio hits on November 18th, you’ll hopefully have a much better idea on how to sustain the type of success you wish to experience in the future, and this is a wonderful time to envision where your efforts may take you over the next 6 months. With Neptune also ending its long retrograde a few days later on the 22nd, its especially important that you set goals with soul because if your vision for the future isn’t rooted in a deeper meaning or purpose (that you can somehow stick up on your wall or keep at the forefront of your mind day in and day out), you may have some trouble staying committed to your money goals for the long haul.

Meanwhile, your ruler Mars is blessing your Relationship zone this month, so perhaps you’ll want to consider doing more 1-on-1 work or partnering up with a coach who can help you make bigger things happen. Or how about starting a mini-mastermind with someone who has similar goals as you do so you can cheer each other on and provide some mutual support as you both make the climb to the top of your careers?

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

Who’s got your back, Taurus? As the Sun looms over your 7th house of Relationships, the focus for you this month is on partnerships and the people you have to support you in your work & daily life. If you’re usually not one who likes to ask for help, it may be time to change that. Perhaps it’s time to take on a business partner, seek out a healer, or deepen your connection with someone romantically. With your ruler love & beauty planet Venus also blessing your Relationship zone now, life can truly be so much sweeter when you have someone to share both your stumbling blocks & successes with!

It’s good to get clear on what your needs are in the first place, however, before you bring someone else into the picture. The Full Moon in your sign on the 4th may have been extra strength for you in terms of clearing out old fears and coming back into contact with the subconscious ideas & beliefs you have about yourself, but normally try to ignore. Realizing how far you’ve come on your own and what you feel you’re still lacking is the first step to turning things around and opening your heart up to outside help. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th is especially lucky for calling in the kind of supportive relationship you’re craving most.

Now that Neptune is also ending its long retrograde period in your 11th house of Community on the 22nd, you may finally be able to get clearer on who you’re here to serve and how you can be most helpful to others as well. Look within yourself – or pay closer attention to the odd things people seem to praise you for – and I think you’ll find you have so much more to offer the world than you may have been giving yourself credit for!

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

How good have you been at balancing it all? This month, the Sun is jetting through your 6th house of Work & Daily Routines to help you notice more of what is not working in your schedule so you can try to find ways to re-evaluate where your focus really needs to go (like on your overall wellness maybe). Do you wake up in a frazzle, pop some food in your mouth and then run around like a crazy person all day? Eventually, something’s gotta give.

The Full Moon in Taurus on the 4th may have brought out your wild mystical side, or perhaps a side of you that you normally keep hidden. This was a time for you to release anything in your life that is not taking you towards that bigger picture vision of where you actually want to be. The good news is that once you become clear on what you don’t want, you can get so much clearer on what you do, and suddenly prioritizing your daily life with purpose will feel even more important. Use the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th to dream up your ideal weekly schedule and then take steps to make it happen in the next 6 months!

Meanwhile, now that Neptune’s long retrograde is ending on the 22nd, you can also begin to get a little more clear on where you would like your career efforts to be taking you too. You may have been feeling some confusion on what you really want to be doing for work, but soon you’ll be finally able to move forward with the help of a few good clues.

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

While Scorpio season may seem somewhat heavy for most, with the Sun moving and shaking through your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, you are in your natural element. This is a lovely time to express yourself and dive deep to bring more of your heart into the work you’re doing. Start a new project just for you – something that’s been on your mind but you haven’t yet given time for it to come through. Others may be quite inspired by your clever imagination too!

The truth is that you really can’t please everyone anyway. So, if the Full Moon revealed some issues you’ve been having with the people around you, what better reason to focus more on what you want to do? Enchant with your passion and the right people will be especially attracted to what you have to offer. And please do not be worrying about whether or not you’ve got it all figured out yet! You can use this month’s New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th to set a clear intention for where you would most like to be channeling your creativity and watch it play out as slowly & comfortably as you’d like over the next 6 months.

Meanwhile, Neptune has been in retrograde for 5 long months since mid-June. During this time, you may have been feeling somewhat unsure of where your true interests lie or where your next dose of magic can be found, but now that things are turning around, any ideas or goals based on traveling, studying, teaching, or taking a course may soon become much more detailed for you. Pay attention to your dreams for extra clues!

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

Time to bring it all home, Leo. This month, the Sun cruises through your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security, putting your focus on your personal life and making life more cozy for yourself and the ones you love the most. You may also want to put some time into thinking about the future of your living situation – whether that means re-decorating, planning a big move, or simply going over your long-range goals. Where do you truly want to see yourself in the next few years? Talk it out with the people you hold near & dear.

As the Full Moon’s rays illuminate all of the efforts you’ve been putting into your career on the 4th, you may also start to realize you are meant for even more. Whatever your big life dream may be, a good plan may be just the thing you need to feel into the plentiful possibilities of your potential. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th will be just the time to set your sights on the cushy foundation you’re hoping to build for yourself and set a clear intention for the long run.

Meanwhile, Neptune will be heading out of its long retrograde on the 22nd. Ever since mid-June, you may have had to reconsider how you can make multitudes of money in a way that feels more brilliantly blessed. With this planet of dreams & ideals soon to be turning back around, your business ideas may finally begin to come together to form a vision of financial freedom you’ll actually be quite excited to get behind.

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

Got something big brewing behind the scenes of your psyche? This month, the Sun is zooming through your 3rd house of Social Networking, helping you get out and about to find the right people to share your brilliant ideas with. If you have an exciting goal, there may be someone in your network who can help you make it so! Reach out to the right crowd and let them know what you’re looking to do. By sharing your message, you become a lighthouse calling all of the like-minded people towards you… and you never know what kind of amazing people will want to come to your aid.

The Full Moon in fellow Earth sign Taurus may have brought distractions or fears that you don’t know enough to move forward quite yet. Put aside the perfectionism, Virgo, you are enough just the way you are, and if you don’t take the first step now… then when? You’ll learn the most by doing (and asking for help too), so use the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th to set a powerful intention for the kind of people you want to call in to work alongside you to help you make your big vision take off.

Meanwhile, the planet of dreams, ideals, and confusion, Neptune, will finally end its 5-month long retrograde in your 7th house of Relationships on the 22nd. You may have been more than a little confused about what you want in a partner – whether business or romantic – but with this elusive planet finally turning around, you can finally formulate a dream scenario that is truly worth aiming for.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

What do you want and why do you want it? This month, the Sun is dancing through your 2nd house of Love & Money, bringing in a time of soul searching and reckoning with your own sense of self-worth. If there is something, in particular, you’ve been craving – like more money, recognition, or a more fulfilling way of working – you may have to suck it up and be the one to give it to yourself. Money blocks are no joke, and self-fulfilling prophesies can be the stuff of nightmares. If you truly feel you deserve something more, then do not be afraid to step up and grab it. Success is yours for the taking – if only you will give yourself permission to go after the life you really want.

With the Full Moon beaming its light down on your money business and the ways some of your previously hidden beliefs have gotten in the way of your earnings on the 4th, it will be especially important to get clear on your true goals and why they matter to you in the first place. Work for work’s sake (or money’s sake) is a bore… fuel your daily grind with feeling and it will become worth so much more. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th is your call to envision, quite clearly, exactly what you want so you can firm up the foundations to turn it from just a fantasy to ‘for real’.

Good old Neptune hasn’t been much help lately either when it comes to deciding what your ideal life & work situation would really look like for you, but once this planet of dreams & ideals moves out of its 5-month long retrograde on the 22nd, you will soon have a better idea of the kind of lifestyle that would really suit you so you can start taking some solid steps to make it so.

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

This is a month of transformation for you, dear Scorpio. With the Sun simmering in your sign throughout most of this month, it is time for you to break out into the open and bring your heart’s desires into the light of day. If you have been confused or unsure of yourself, this is the time to remedy that by putting yourself out there in a way that feels the most right to you right now. As a Scorpio, you are always changing, growing, and evolving anyways, and the goal is always going to be to move in the direction of what makes you feel the best.

The Full Moon on the 4th may have been somewhat uncomfortable since it fell in your opposite sign, but it was meant to remind you to release anyone or anything that has been holding you back from going after your own dreams in life. Let your soul shine as brightly as you want, regardless of what you think the people around you can handle. Personal branding projects are great for you this month so you can start showing the world what you’re really made of. You can also use the New Moon in Scorpio (your sign!) on the 18th to set a powerful intention on how you would like to continue to show up in the world on an even grander scale over the next 6 months.

Meanwhile, Neptune finally ends its long retrograde period in your zone of Fun & Creativity on the 22nd, helping you get clearer on the ways your creativity energy would most like to be conducted. Once again, this is not about what other people want from you, it’s about what you most need and want to see in the world and creating it for yourself. Be bold enough to believe in your biggest dreams, and your most exciting project ideas can start zooming ahead with extra zest soon enough!

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

Have your dreams been a little crazier than normal? That’s probably because the Sun and Jupiter are both sitting right inside your 12th house of Mystical Pursuits at the moment. This can be a time when your intuitive abilities are at extra strength, but this dose of what may sometimes feel like delirium can also bring up fears and memories to haunt you. Fret not, because this is actually a really wonderful time for imagining all of the wondrous possibilities too. You are getting ready to begin a new cycle at the end of the month, so use this prep time to brainstorm what your bliss looks like and release bad vibes to move towards a greater purpose that helps you finally fully break away from the past.

With the Full Moon’s rays shimmering down on your scheduled routines and rituals on the 4th, you may have realized you also need to release any bad habits or poor time management issues that are keeping you from living a more meaningful (and more well balanced) existence. Do you pile up too much on your plate – and then burn out from the overwhelming quest to keep up? If you’re continuously putting your wellbeing on the back burner, it’s time to switch things around. The New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th can be useful for setting a powerful intention on how you want to live your days more consciously and put yourself in a better position to prioritize the things that truly matter most.

Near the end of this month, Neptune will begin turning things around in your zone of Long-term Planning as well, giving you a decisive dose of clarity around your long-range plans and how you might like to go about creating a firmer financial foundation for yourself in the future. For now, move along with the knowing that many things will start to make a lot more sense soon enough!

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

Rally the troops, Capricorn! Right now the Sun is sauntering through your 11th house of Friendship & Community, helping you widen your circle by offering something even sweeter to those who surround you. If you run a business, this is a great time for marketing, promotions, and e-mail opt-in freebie creation so you can show off the value of what you’re selling to those who may need it most. For those working in a job, you might instead look for ways to branch out and help your friends or people in your community to bring more purpose to your personal time. This month, the best rewards will come when you count helping others become better as part of your achievements.

With the Full Moon lighting up your creative aspirations on the 4th, a project that is special to you may have finally reached culmination. If there are still wrinkles in the plan, smooth them out as best you can and then move on. Perfection is not necessarily always attainable, and the sooner you finish, the sooner you can help inspire others with your much-needed brand of magic. On the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th, set a powerful intention on how far and wide of an audience you are wanting to reach so you can spend the next 6 months with a clear vision of how much fuel to put into spreading your ideas like wildfire.

In other news, Neptune’s long retrograde period will be ending in your zone of networking on the 22nd. You may have been somewhat unsure of who your true friends are or even who your dream clients really are (and how to market to them in a language they can understand). With this exciting turn of events, finding the perfect people to associate with among the stormy sea of social media will become so much simpler in time.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

Time to shine your light loud & proud! This month, with the Sun cruising through your 10th house of Career, your efforts may finally see you soaring. Any hard work you put in during this month will pay off in spades, so put your nose to the grindstone and work. it. out. Others will be increasingly inspired by your tenacity and good ideas, so give them an excellent show that they will not soon forget. This time only comes around once every year… put it to good use and don’t be afraid to make a major move!

Part of the reason for all the hard work & hustle may come from the Full Moon’s x-ray like abilities to drudge up fears around the stability of your financial foundations on the 4th. If you have been wishing for a cushier sense of security and safety, this may finally give you the kick you need to put your long-range plans into super drive. Use the potent New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th to really get extra clear on the big picture vision for where you would like to end up in your career to make these goals of yours feel more near.

Meanwhile, the ending of Neptune’s super long retrograde period will bring additional gifts of understanding around what you really want as well as why you want it. You may have been somewhat unsure of what your true goals really are all about (or how to go about getting them), but soon they will become much more obvious to you in time. For now, focus on day by day progress to create a feeling of success!

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

Where has your mind wandered off to now, dear Pisces? This month, the Sun shines on your 9th house of Travel & Higher Education, helping you widen your horizons and seek magic beyond the boundaries of your everyday life. Perhaps you are looking to take a class, travel somewhere new, or teach others something of your own. Follow your curiosities to stumble on to your next creative venture, and watch as the world opens up to you in exciting ways all along the way!

If you’ve already been working quite hard to put yourself out there this year, the Full Moon on the 4th may call in others who want to rally around your cause. You could be featured somewhere or join up with someone cool on a collaboration that has the potential to take you even further! Meanwhile, the New Moon in Scorpio on the 18th is excellent timing for setting a powerful intention for where you might want your creative pursuits to take you next.

With your ruling planet Neptune moving backwards for 5 long months in your sign, you’ve been doing a whole lot of experimenting around how you would like most to show up in the world. But now that this planet of dreams & ideals is turning around on the 22nd, you will soon have a much clearer idea of how you want to soar to new heights and allow yourself to be seen!

Full Moon in Taurus ~ Dare to Desire


Our Full Moon in Taurus brings along with it the culmination of comfort fueled by deeper desires and cultivated through determination, hard work, and sustained efforts over the past 6 months.

We all have similar basic needs in life… food, water, shelter, and love. But what about those of us who crave so much more than just the bare minimum needed to get by (or don’t even feel we have even that)? Unfortunately, our deepest desires are not promised to us simply because we exist, but we all do have the power to earn the things we want just by putting in enough effort over time.

As this year begins the process of wrapping up, we can now look back and see all that we have done to reach our goals. Have you worked diligently to make your most delicious dreams come true? Or has the distraction of instant gratification thrown you off course from savoring the sweet victory of tasting the fruits of your labor?

This Full Moon asks us to take an inventory on where we have been focusing our efforts and to examine where the work we have been putting in day by day has brought us up until this point in order to celebrate the wins… and perhaps also to realize where we have been letting ourselves down by settling for what has seemed to be the ‘easy’ way out.

Read more about how to work with this sensual & stability-seeking Full Moon below…

 

 

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Taurus // November 3/4, 2017 @ 10:24 pm PT // 1:24 am ET / 5:24 am UK // 4:24 pm AEDT

Putting in the hard work to build a life worth loving. In order to set a solid goal, we must first check in with ourselves to understand what we want and name the things we’re craving deep beneath the surface. Then, we need to get clear on what it will take and what we’re actually willing to do to get it. However, the most important part is what comes after that.

Taurus is an Earth sign that is deeply determined to get what they want. They can be slow to move forward at times, but once they’ve settled on bringing an idea forth, they will stop at nothing until they see the final product come to life. This may mean putting in long days sitting at their desk every. single. day. making sure every detail is meticulously crafted – or – simply showing up for a spare hour here and there to push things forward bit by bit, even if it seems like there is no end in sight anytime soon.

Our Full Moon in Taurus will remind us of the beauty that is possible when we put in sustained effort over time, and the glory we can experience when we actually allow ourselves to put our whole selves into making our dreams a reality.

If you really want something, do you actually show up and do the work day by day to make it happen – even when it’s really hard or seems utterly impossible? Do you pride yourself on making every single detail matter along the way – regardless of how minor it may be – because of the love you have for your creation? Or do you look for shortcuts and loopholes to get to the finish line faster, sacrificing part of your creative integrity in the process?

Thanks to a harmonious angle between the Sun and Neptune, the wonderful thing about this slow and sensual Full Moon in Taurus, in particular, is that we are given the opportunity to celebrate our wins so far and to continue envisioning a future where we truly are where we crave to be – even if we have somehow still fallen short of it as of yet.

It’s so NOT a time to beat yourself up for not having worked harder this year or getting mad at yourself for having given up on some of your dreams because they were inconvenient. It’s simply a time to check in and remind yourself of what you truly desire and re-consider what more you could be doing to create a more comfortable and enjoyable life for yourself, no matter how rocky the path ahead may appear.

Unless you are already smugly sitting back and celebrating having reached every goal you’ve set out to accomplish in 2017, you can use this ferocious Full Moon to become inspired by the steadiness of the bull and his amazing ability to train its gaze on a meaningful destination, knowing full well you will eventually get there someday as long as you continue to believe you will – and to appreciate each and every day you’re able to make progress along the way.

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “What have I been doing to honor my deeper desires over the past 6 months?”
  • “What more am I craving in terms of love, money, and comfort in my life + career?”
  • “What physical steps do I need to take to be able to enjoy my life and savor my success more?”
  • “How can I remind myself to keep going even when it feels hard or impossible along the way?”


On a wider scale, this Full Moon will signal the completion of a cycle that began on the New Moon in Taurus on April 26, 2017. Look back for a moment… what were you beginning to work on then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

Eventually we will transition into Sagittarius season by the end of the month, but not after several chances to find out who we really are and face some of those deeply rooted fears.

Horoscopes

Career Scopes for October 2017

With the Sun leaping from the sign of light & lovely Libra into shadow seeking Scorpio later this month, we are meant to re-define our desires and cast off the heavy weight of what is no longer carrying us where we wish to go.

Last month’s journey through Virgo was helpful for removing anything in our lives or careers that were not efficiently contributing to the greater vision that we’ve been hoping to realize. But now, in Libra season, we seek to refine that vision even further by adding a dash of peaceful bliss & harmony that have been missing in our environment or relationships with others. How can you dress up your days more delightfully?

Once the Sun moves into Scorpio on the 23rd, we will move back into a period of darkness again – but not dark as in bad or evil – dark as in removing outside distractions and getting back in tune with the song of our soul. In the meantime, find your balance, seek out beauty, and aim your sights on attracting in the good vibes you’ve been longing for.

We also have our planet of good fortune, Jupiter, moving into a new sign to bless an entirely new area of our lives with joyful abundance for the next year! 💖


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

Aries

ARIES / ARIES RISING
(March 21 – April 19)

Sometimes two flames are better than one! As the Sun moves through Libra and your 7th house of Relationships for the majority of the month, you may want to consider allowing others to collaborate with you on your most important projects. Assertive Aries doesn’t always like to give up power to someone else, but your creative fires may burn even brighter when you surround yourself with the solid support of others.

With the Full Moon landing in your sign on the 5th, you are also in for a major release of anything that has been keeping you from feeling more like your truly authentic self. You have come so far since your birthday and you may have already started to see some of your wildest ideas coming true, but now that changemaker Pluto is moving forward again in your Career Zone it’s very likely there is much more work you’ll need to bust out to be able to make an even bigger impact on the world.

On October 10th, Jupiter will move out of your 7th house of Relationships and into your zone of intimacy & financial security. Over the last year, you may have found better ways of relating to others, cemented an important relationship, or formed a business alliance with benefits. The next year may find you getting more profitable systems in place for your business or committing to a romantic or business partner that can help you secure your future in even more mutually lucrative ways. With the Sun aligning with Jupiter as it does only once per year, October 26th is an especially fantastic day to look out for financial opportunities or plan a major career move.

Taurus

TAURUS / TAURUS RISING
(April 20 – May 20)

Earthy Taurus naturally favors sustainability and hard work, but is your daily schedule really going to be do-able for you into the long term? For most of this month, the Sun will be roaming through Libra and your 6th house of Health, Work & Daily Routines. If you’ve been bending over backward to keep it all in order, this time is all about getting on track with a lifestyle that feels good to you while still being as efficient and productive as you can. Who knows, maybe all these systems you are putting in place will even free up more time to do more of the things you truly love outside of work?

With the Full Moon falling in Aries on October 5th, there may also be a need for you to check back in with your deeper desires and where all of these outer efforts are taking you. Are your daily actions helping you make the impact you really want to make or leading you towards your greatest potential? We are all here to share our gifts with the world, so this would be a good time to remind yourself of what really matters most to you in the grand scheme of things.

After a year of boosting up your health efforts and improving your work/life balance, the joyful & jubilant planet Jupiter will now be moving into your 7th house of Relationships. Over the next year, you may deepen a romantic connection with a special someone, widen your circle of friends or helpful healing practitioners, or forge an important business bond. October 26th is especially lucky for widening your horizons when it comes to the way you relate to others in exciting ways – whether romantically or through a joint venture.

Gemini

GEMINI / GEMINI RISING
(May 21 – June 20)

Important question… have you been having enough fun lately? Because, this month, as the Sun moves through Libra and your 5th house of Fun & Creativity, you may be especially ready to experience a more exciting ride through your life & career. Creative projects are boosted up and all of that seriousness from last month may finally begin to fade into the distance as you embrace a more light-hearted approach to your daily lifestyle. Now that Pluto is moving full speed ahead in your 8th house of Finance, perhaps all this playtime will help you come up with an even better idea on how to boost your bottom line in a more fulfilling way.

With the Full Moon falling in Aries on the 5th, you may have come to realize that some of your friendships are not quite what you would like them to be, and that’s okay. Realizing what you do and do not want in a friend is one of the most important first steps to finding more like-minded souls you do jive with. You may even consider which positive traits you have to offer to others you are in a friendship with that can help sweeten your exchanges as well.

Meanwhile, with prosperity planet Jupiter moving out of Libra and into Scorpio on the 10th, there is a whole new chapter of abundance beginning for you when it comes to the work you’re doing on a daily basis. Over the next year, lucky Geminis may receive a promotion, find a more exciting job opportunity, or get on board with a healthier lifestyle to help them feel their best. October 26th is quite easily the best day of the year for opening your mind to the possibilities!

Cancer

CANCER / CANCER RISING
(June 21 – July 22)

Ready for some much-needed TLC? After a busy month of mingling amongst your nearby community, you may be feeling a little tuckered out and longing to settle back into your home life now. With the Sun moving through Libra and your 4th house of Home, Family & Long-term Security, this is your month to get back in touch with your natural domestic goddess-ness and put a little more thought into how you can make your surroundings feel both more comfortable and secure. Perhaps this means working on some projects around your home, signing a lease on some new digs, or putting extra effort into your financial plans for the future.

As the Full Moon lands in Aries and your Career Zone on the 5th, you may also become much more aware of the areas where you feel you’re lacking when it comes to the work you do for a living. Is what you’re doing getting you where you want to go? If not, consider taking some time to make a list of your 2017 accomplishments and then see what more you would still like to add before this year comes to an end.

Meanwhile, the tides are turning when it comes to your lucky streak! Over the past year, Jupiter has been gliding through your home zone to help you cultivate a more supportive environment, but on October 10th this planet of good fortune moves into your 5th house of Fun & Creativity. The next 13 months are ripe for creating a whole new body of work or engaging in a meaningful project you can pour all your love into. October 26th may be especially lucky for discovering your next brilliant idea!

Leo

LEO / LEO RISING
(July 23 – August 22)

Ever since the Solar Eclipse and a double dose of New Moons in your sign, you may have experienced a creative revolution that has set you on a whole new path! Now that the goalposts have moved, you’ve had to take some time to really think about what you’re hoping to accomplish and the best way to go about this. This month, as the Sun moves through Libra and your 3rd house of Social Networking, get out and about in your community to bounce ideas off others around you can be just the thing you need to continue feeling inspired to actually make things happen in the real world.

As your own personal cheerleading squad gathers all around you, you can start to feel more confident about presenting your plans for world domination on a more practical level. But with the Full Moon falling in Aries on the 5th, there may still be a few outside distractions to contend with. If you keep adding new ideas to the mix, nothing good will ever get done! Focus on utilizing the resources you already have available to you to help you make your mark.

Meanwhile, Jupiter, the planet of luck, abundance & prosperity, will be moving into a whole new chapter of your chart. On October 10th, your zone of Home, Family & Long-term Security will be getting blessed by Jupiter’s bountiful vibes for the whole next year. Coupled Leos may be extending their family, while others could move to a new abode or find more fulfilling ways to invest in their financial future. Circle the 26th on your calendar as it will be especially wonderful for brainstorming ways to harness this good energy!

Virgo

VIRGO / VIRGO RISING
(August 23 – September 22)

What are some of the things at the top of your wish list? As the Sun glides through Libra and your 2nd house of Love, Money & Values, it’s the best time of the year to get back in touch with your desires and decide on what is really fueling your greatest goals for the future. Sometimes asking yourself what you don’t want can be a surefire way to discover the truth of what you do. But instead of cluttering your to-do list with too many things to accomplish, why not keep it simple by whittling it down to just 3 good-feeling words to aim for in all that you do?

Meanwhile, with the Full Moon falling in Aries and your 8th house of Business, some of your fears around not being able to get what you want may be messing with your manifestation vibes. If something matters to you enough, you will find a way to get it – some way somehow! Take some time to tally up your financial goals and then work backward to reverse engineer the most realistic steps you’ll need to take to get there.

With Jupiter now crossing into a whole new zone of your chart on October 10th, this lucky planet will be bringing good fortune to help you forge new connections with people around you who can help you spread your message and make your dreams happen even faster. It has been 12 years since Jupiter has helped you pull together a supportive squad to help you knock it out of the park, and the next 13 months will finally be all yours to do just that. Be sure to pay attention to any networking opportunities that come up for you on the 26th as they may help you tap into a new stream of ideas that can help get you right where you want to go.

Libra

LIBRA / LIBRA RISING
(September 23 – October 22)

Libra, who are you really? The Sun’s rays are gleaming directly on your sign this month, shining the spotlight on your identity to help you reveal more of your own personal brand of magic. After last month’s rather confusing wade through the darker waters of your subconscious, you may finally be ready to bring a new idea out into the bright wide open and take a stand when it comes to portraying yourself in the way you truly want to be seen by others.

This month’s Full Moon in Aries in your Relationship zone will be helping you make this transformation even more, as you redefine for yourself and all interested parties just how far you are really willing to bend to please the crowd. If there are any inequalities present in your dealings with others – whether we are talking romantically, in a business partnership, or with your clients or customers – this is the time to be bold and speak up to reset the scales to make sure you are receiving the respect you truly deserve.

Meanwhile, Jupiter will finally end its journey through your sign, which brought an exciting stroke of luck to your life & career to help you step it up in the world as your own person, potentially even bringing you the opportunity to land a leadership position. Now, the planet of good fortune will be moving on to an even more exciting zone of your chart to help you bring in more love, money, or other valuable items that you have been longing for as the next year presses on. Tip: Mark down October 26th when the Sun & Jupiter will align because this is an especially lucrative day for Libras to plan a launch or garner a greater sense of recognition!

Scorpio

SCORPIO / SCORPIO RISING
(October 23 – November 21)

It’s time to tap into the deepest depths, dear Scorpio. You are no stranger to this idea, yet that doesn’t make it any less difficult to navigate. This month, the Sun will be moving through your 12th house of Spiritual Pursuits, helping you set off on a more purposeful path for the future as you sort through the murky memories and artful aspirations that may be jumbling around in your mind. This is a time of experimentation, of brainstorming, and sorting out which of your ideas are based on fear and which ones are truly based on love.

As the Full Moon falls in Aries on the 5th, you may come to realize which of your day-to-day actions are taking you towards your bliss and which are somehow throwing you off track. When you have a deeper reason behind all of the things you are doing, you will naturally make better choices for yourself. Take the time to tune in to both the life & career activities that make you feel most alive and which only end up dulling your outlook and wearing you down.

The amazing news is that any confusion you may be feeling is oh so temporary and will be leading you into a much brighter period soon. On October 10th, Jupiter will move out of your meaningful zone of mystical pursuits and into your sign, blessing you with some feel-good fortune like you haven’t seen in the past 12 years. Expect a renewed sense of wonder, abundance, joy and excitement over the entire next year! The 26th is an especially good time to feel grateful for the journey you have taken to get here.

Sagittarius

SAGITTARIUS / SAGITTARIUS RISING
(November 22 – December 21)

How can you show that you really care? This month, the Sun glides through Libra and your 11th house of Friendship & Community, bringing in a time when you may wish to re-evaluate the value you bring to others and find new ways to fill their needs. This is sage advice to keep in mind whether you are hoping to grow your online following to promote your business or just want to find new ways of connecting with the people who physically surround you. Potential clients & customers will be more open to your agenda if you are transparent in explaining just how much you actually do have their best interests in mind.

Meanwhile, with the Full Moon will be falling in Aries on the 5th, you may begin to feel a bit like your creativity isn’t quite taking you where you’d like to go. Is there a way you can make a more rewarding compromise between what others need and what you really want to offer? Consider all of your options and don’t be afraid to make a much-needed change if it means you’ll end up feeling more fulfilled.

As your ruler Jupiter moves out of Libra and into Scorpio on the 10th, there will be a changing of tides when it comes to your fortune. You may have actually had a lot of success growing your community and welcoming new people in to help you celebrate your life & career over the past year, but now it is time to get back in touch with the bigger purpose behind all of the fanfare. October 26th is especially lucky for becoming reattuned to the magic of your greater mission!

Capricorn

CAPRICORN / CAPRICORN RISING
(December 22 – January 19)

Watch out world, because the Sun is now moving through Libra and your 10th house of Career! When it comes to your goals, you are naturally a high flying achiever (even if it doesn’t always feel that way, since – let’s be honest – you can be quite prone to setting yourself up for seemingly impossible expectations at times). Still, this is a wonderful time to focus on growing your business, climbing up your career ladder, or making your presence known on a whole new level that is not only lucrative but especially meaningful.

However, as the Full Moon falls in Aries on the 5th, some of your deeper insecurities may rise up to the surface. If you have been worried you won’t have what you need to feel safe, comfortable, or happy when it comes to your home, family or financial picture in the future, then it may be time to revisit your master plan to make sure that your efforts are truly going to help you manifest what you need to make sure you end up in the right place.

Now that Jupiter is switching signs from Libra to Scorpio (as it does only once per year), any efforts you put forth to reach out to your community and provide them with more value will be especially well received and you may even start rallying a bigger fan base around your offerings for the next 13 months! Look out for an excellent idea on October 26th that could have the power to re-inspire your path ahead and garner more recognition around your cause.

Aquarius

AQUARIUS / AQUARIUS RISING
(January 20 – February 18)

What are you hoping to learn next? After a month of getting your financial assets on firmer ground, you may start to wish there was more magic present in your life & career. This month, the Sun will be foraying through your 9th house of Travel & Higher Education, a time of exploring new territories and widening your horizons when it comes to learning, teaching, or transporting your mind to new places. Some Aquarians may wish to take a class, indulge in a new stack of books, or plan an exciting travel adventure to relight their inner spark.

As the Full Moon falls in Aries on the 5th, you may especially be feeling the need to invite new and exciting elements into your life & career as you may feel that the things that surround you may have become somewhat dull or overdone. It’s okay to take a break from life as you know it and give yourself the chance to feel renewed by a new subject. The world is a big place with so much to offer as long as you are willing to open yourself up to the options!

Meanwhile, our lovely planet of good fortune, Jupiter, will be moving into position to boost up your career efforts for the entire next year starting on the 10th. Perhaps something you discover this month (or over the past year) has provided an intriguing idea that you wish to turn into a new career or a fresher way of doing business. This is a rare time that only comes around once every 12 years, so be prepared to take full advantage of the bliss it can bring! October 26th is especially lucky for realizing more of what you could do to add more meaning to your work.

Pisces

PISCES / PISCES RISING
(February 19 – March 20)

How are things really adding up for you, dear Pisces? This month, the Sun alights through Libra and your 8th house of Business & Finance, a time that is just right for paying closer attention to the profit you’re bringing in and the bottom line you are hoping to achieve in order to feel more secure in your work efforts. Although this is not typically the most fun topic for your more idealistic way of thinking, you may consider hiring a fresh set of eyes to look at your business systems & bookkeeping or just take the time on your own to recalculate your financial goals to ensure you are doing what is needed for you to realistically keep things right on target.

Meanwhile, the Full Moon in Aries on the 5th may uproot some of your deeper fears around not being able to receive what you want and need to feel happy, secure, or emotionally fulfilled. This is just a passing phase that is meant to help reignite your inner flame to go after what you want (and not just expect it to show up on your doorstep due to wishful thinking & manifestation voodoo). You really do have what it takes… it may just require adopting a new strategic mindset that is much more grounded and practical!

On October 10th, your co-ruler Jupiter will be making its big move out of Libra and into Scorpio. All of this financial planning will be paying off in a big way because now this will be your year to go off and explore the world and learn something exciting & new. Pay attention to what comes up for you on October 26th because it may provide some clues that can show you just how you might like to widen your horizons over the next 13 months!

Full Moon in Aries ~ Blooming Passion


Our brightest passions are ready to bloom into fullness as we also prune away the buds that never quite blossomed to make room for more beauty, harmony, and ease.

Now that we’re getting nearer to the end of the year, we can begin to look back and see how far we’ve come and to take stock of where our previous dreams and goals have brought us so far. What were you most passionate about when this year first began? What fresh, new perspectives were you excited to embrace when the page was still white and the slate still clean – the year completely yours to fill with whatever you most desired?

Seeds of passion planted back in late March – Springtime in the Northern Hemisphere – are now blossoming into fullness with this Full Moon in Aries, the sign that starts off the zodiac and skillfully sparks new ideas that the rest of us may not have even seen coming. But what about those ideas that never picked up speed, or did, but didn’t quite take us where we actually wanted to go?

This Full Moon asks us to let go of past failures and lost battles, and at the same time, to celebrate the seeds that have somehow budded into big beautiful blossoms despite any worry, anxiety or anticipation we may have felt that they wouldn’t, due to outside influences such as so-called bad weather or other people’s close-minded opinions.

Read more about how to work with this fiery & passionate Full Moon below…

 

 

 

🌝 FULL MOON in Aries // October 5, 2017 @ 11:41 am PT / 2:41 pm ET / 7:41 pm UK // 5:41 am AEDT {on the 6th}

Setting your heart on fire, you are that blossom. When it comes to navigating the direction you’re heading in, whether in your life or career, do you rely on others for their encouragement and example to propel you forward – or to fertilize your dreams? Or are you able to tap inside your own heart and find that which fuels you and only you alone, stubbornly blocking out any outside influences that may hinder your growth along the way?

Aries is a sign that is known for their fiercely independent and competitive nature. At their best, they spark new concepts and act on innovative ideas without a second thought to wonder whether they might work out because they simply follow their bottomless bliss paired with an unwavering drive to succeed and be the first to embark on new frontiers, all while living on the cutting edge of creation.

Our Full Moon in Aries will be reminding us of our ability to tap into our personal sense of power & passion to create magic & momentum out of thin air.

On the zodiac wheel, Aries is the sign that symbolizes our sense of self-identity and personal branding. This is all about what makes us unique and sets us apart from the sea of other voices in the crowd. With rebellious Uranus hanging out in the sign of Aries until May 2018, we are being reminded of the power of our independence and the amazing things that happen when we can harness our personal sense of passion to break out of any perceived constrictions and create our own set of rules when it comes to chasing success as we see it.

This Full Moon will also be occurring as Venus and Mars blend their energies for the only time this year, re-balancing & blending the energy of feminine and masculine in the name of passionate creation and helping us find our center so we can create from a place of love.

But this Full Moon is not all just blossoms, butterflies, and beauty. As we all know, Full Moons can be emotional times for renewal and release. There is also a tense square off with Pluto forming and this may influence a breaking point to help us clear away any stumbling blocks that have kept us from realizing our true nature and potential for evolving to the next level of our greatness. This aspect will be building even past the time the moon reaches fullness and into the waning period, the time that is truly meant for removing any emotional build-up that crosses to the surface from the Full Moon’s pull so we can face our shadow and move forward less hindered in the pursuit to create a life we are most passionate about.

 

On this Full Moon, look for answers around:

  • “What are some of the things I am most passionate about having created so far this year?”
  • “What are some things that make me feel like I’m powerfully in the driver’s seat of my own life & how can I harness more of that?”
  • “How do I naturally stand out from the crowd & what do I have to offer that no one else does?”
  • “What are some limiting beliefs that are still holding me back from creating my best life + career?”


On a wider scale, this Full Moon will signal the completion of a cycle that began on the New Moon in Aries on March 27/28, 2017. Look back for a moment… what were you beginning to work on then? Perhaps some of it has already begun to come true, but now is the time to see it come full circle.

How to Set Powerful Intentions for the New Moon

 

Every month, as the moon closes out its current moon cycle and begins a new one, we are told to get ready to set our intentions. But what exactly does this mean and what is the purpose behind it? How can we use this extra special time of the month to prepare for a new cycle of success in both our life & career? 🌑✨

In this post, I’m going to explain my personal process for celebrating each New Moon to get back in touch with how I feel, deepen into my soul’s intentions, and clearly set my sights toward what I want to manifest or see happen in the future.

But first of all, why do we do this? Why is the New Moon the best time to check in with yourself in the first place? Read on below…

 

 

Why do we set intentions on the New Moon?

Most people who are into goal setting usually tend to sit down around the 1st of the month to check in with their finances, update their bookkeeping, and prepare their schedule for the month ahead. I definitely do this too, but during my monthly planning overviews as I call them (which I treat as if it’s a formal meeting with myself, even though I am the only one working at my business), these goals are mostly focused outward – as in, asking myself: what do I want to accomplish in the outer world as the CEO of my business?

New Moons are wonderful for planning and goal setting, too, but of a different variety.

When the Moon is completely dark in the sky and there is no light to shine on our surroundings, it is the ultimate time to look inside yourself – into your inner light – for answers.

For example: I remember when I was touring colleges to try to decide which art school to go to several years ago, and one of the art schools had all gray walls throughout the classrooms and hallways. I thought this was a bit odd since it was an art school, and I remember asking myself, “Couldn’t they think of a better and more inspiring color than gray to force their students to look at day in and day out?” It turns out this was done on purpose because studies have shown that the gray color of the walls actually promotes your ability to bring your inner creativity out into the world.

So, when the moonlight begins coming back as it does just after the New Moon is exact, it’s the perfect time to set your intentions of what you would like to manifest because you actually get a chance to check in with how you’re truly feeling beneath the surface. What is the inner feeling that fuels your creativity? What is truly inspiring you? What lights you up? What are you ready to change so you can feel better, happier, and more in alignment with your true self?

By taking the time to focus on finding the answers to these deeper, internal questions, you’re able to plan a seed of what you would like to manifest into your life on a more soulful level, and this seed will continue to grow as you begin to bring more and more of your focus out into the world as the moon grows into fullness once again.

 

 

My Personal Intention Setting Ritual

There are many different articles on rituals & routines out there circulating throughout the internet on how to celebrate the New Moon by setting your intentions. There is really no “official right way” because it’s all about doing whatever you need to do to check in with your own soul, but I thought you might like to see what my personal routine looks like.

Note: It is best, however, to set your intentions within 24 hours AFTER the time the New Moon is exact as you welcome in the new cycle.

 

1. Clear the clutter.

The time before the New Moon is all about letting go, so the first thing I do before I sit down to set my intentions for the next moon cycle is to make sure that my space is completely clean. I take out the garbage, do the dishes, clean off all of the surfaces, and spray them with some Mrs. Meyer’s (an aromatherapeutic cleaning spray that is ahh-mazing). I make my bed, put some fresh flowers in a vase, and vacuum to clear out any stagnant vibes and create a clean slate around me so I can think more clearly without any distractions.

 

2. Set the tone.

Once I have a clean space around me, I rejuvenate my surroundings even more by creating an inspiring vibe. I’ll light some candles, make a cup of tea, burn some sage, turn on some soft music, and put on a blend of essential oils. This is where my “routine” really becomes more like a ritual because I’m not just going through the motions because I decided I have to, I’m actually taking the time to mindfully make this a really special time to check in with myself.

 

3. Meditate & Let Go.

Before I grab my journal, I like to take a few moments to think about how I’m really feeling as well as how I have been feeling throughout the past few weeks. What has made me anxious? What has made me really happy? Where were there problems in my life or career? What are some of the things I have been doing – or not doing – that haven’t made me feel so good? Where have my inner fears come into play to stop me from charging ahead as my most confident self? I like to recognize ALL of these things because ideally, the intentions I go on to set will provide a way to combat these “sore spots” and bring more peace and serenity into my life moving forward.

 

4. Journaling & Creative Visualization.

Then I grab my journal. This is where I write out all of those things that have been bothering me so I can get them out of my head AND I also start to create my dream vision for the future. If there were unlimited possibilities, where would I like to see myself in the next few weeks? This is the perfect time to dream BIG and get really clear about how things would look and feel in an ideal world. The most important part of an intention setting ritual is being clear on what your intentions are. Don’t stop visualizing the possibilities until you find one that makes you feel really happy.

 

5. Make a silent commitment.

After I have made myself feel very high vibe & excited about the future (and not a moment sooner), I close my journal and silently declare to myself that my dreams are already on the way. I don’t necessarily rush into planning mode just yet… that will come later. The time around the First Quarter Moon is actually the best for deciding on the “how”, but for now I allow myself the time to simply percolate on the “what”. The moon is still dark, so the practical, outward steps may not be ready to present themselves quite yet.

 

Some people might take a lovely bath afterwards, do a chakra cleansing meditation, engage in some New Moon Yoga, or check in with their astrologer to see which area of focus is supercharged for them 😉, but ultimately this time is meant to be for you, so feel free to fill it with whatever is going to make you feel the most fulfilled and clear about how you feel as well as the dreams you would like to attract into your life in the future.
