Lunar Forecast and Live, Laugh, Love Days for July 9-15, 2017

Are you feeling any effects from Capricorn’s Full Buck Moon? Capricorn is reputed to be a  somber sign, even though it’s graced with a very dry wit and a sense of humor that can be infectious. It is ruled by crotchety Saturn, though, and he has a knack for bringing on a case of the blues from time to time.

If the blues (or grief) has you in its grips under this Capricorn Moon,  I have two essential oil remedies for you to try.

Whenever I start feeling blue, I get up and get busy.

Moon in Pisces is dreamy, intuitive, and extremely sensitive. There may be an urge to draw inward or retreat from the noise of the world. Underdogs can capture our attention, and we may rush in to help save them whether they want us to or not. Our dreamworld can take on a life of its own.

Today’s New Moon in Aquarius for Tarot Lovers

New Moon on February 18, 2015

You may have heard some discussion as to whether today’s unusual New Moon is in Aquarius or Pisces. The event itself is in Aquarius, 29.59.54 degrees of Aquarius, late but still Aquarius.

Within seconds, the Moon moves into 00 Pisces followed by her consort, the Sun. Does this qualify as a New Moon in Pisces? No, because the mathematics tell us the event occurred in Aquarius. A New Moon event is always just a nanosecond of time. The second the Moon moves forward, the event is over. This one is over at 29.59.55 degrees of Aquarius. It’s a flash in the pan, or perhaps I should say a flash in the sky ~ like when a star goes nova.

The metaphysical lines may be blurry, however, and I seriously doubt that the Moon cares where we draw our lines in the sky. She’ll behave as her nature dictates. We can see this when we look at the two tarot cards representing the last degree of Aquarius and the first degree of Pisces. But instead of the cards, look at the space between the cards.

The last degree of Aquarius corresponds to the 7 of Swords and the first degree of Pisces corresponds to the 8 of Cups. When does one merge into the other? What happens in the space between these two cards and how does it happen?

The general meaning given to the 7 of Swords is someone stealing something.  Aquarius is a rebel charting his own course, but this doesn’t make him a thief. I tend to see this fellow as someone who has his own ideas and separates from the crowd. He takes some of their thoughts and ideas with him, but leaves those that don’t serve him.

We see him next as the 8 of Cups, moving in the landscape of Pisces. His thoughts, ideas, and search for a way forward changes from a mental to a spiritual quest. Somewhere between the space of these two cards, he found his calling and continues his journey ~ not solely as a rebel, but also as a seeker.

We switch from head to heart and heart to head over and over and over again in our lives. If you’re wondering where you are in this constant back and forth, you might enjoy the head to heart ritual I designed for this most unusual New Moon.

The message of today’s New Moon may be that we need to focus on the space between the cards (or signs) and not the cards themselves.

Beyond the Chart ~ A Few Things to Inspire during the Dark Moon of Pisces

As the Moon eases into Pisces and enters her dark phase before the New Moon in Aries, try to find a few soft moments to refresh your mind and body. These few quiet moments could bring the inspiration for your New Moon wishes or gently blur the hard edges from any stresses that may have been overwhelming you lately.

Here are a few tools that I hope will help you relax during the dark phase before entering the dynamic period of the New Moon in Aries, a month of concentrated effort and physical activity.
