Happy New Moon in Leo 🙂

The creative, loving, spirited new moon in Leo is trine the bold and exciting Uranus in Aries. Uranus is currently retrograde so the surprising changes we may feel with this influence are now internal ones. The moon is always connected to our emotions, what makes us feel at home in our soul. In Leo, our inner child is reborn and encourages us to go out and play with our emotions. Let them be free and wander to a place of childlike innocence where pure love can be found. Can we let go of our cynicism and return to faith? Can we approach the surprises we encounter in love with curiousity and wonder?

The planet Jupiter is also in conjunction with the asteroid Pallas, both in Cancer. Jupiter expands Pallas’ emotional intelligence here in this sign, creating warmth and security in our base relationships as well as the ability to defend our family and our home.

Leo is the sign that is ruled by the sun. At this new moon, we can shine bright like the little bits of stardust that we are, knowing that we come from greatness. This greatness reminds us that the need to share love and receive love is an innate one and we should not deny ourselves this pleasure in life. Open your hearts to a love that you haven’t felt in a long time…

If there was ever a day to say it, it’d be today…

Shine bright like a diamond 🙂 Happy New Moon 🙂 xoxo

Full Moon in Aquarius ~ July 22nd, 2013

Full Moon today at 0 degrees Aquarius

~ There’s high, and there’s high, and to get really high – I mean so high that you can walk on the water, that high-that’s where I’m going. ~ George Harrison

Aquarius is the sign that rules the 11th house, the house of dreams, goals, ideals, friendships, groups, the collective whole…and the power that lies in each of these when we take our thoughts to a higher level.

The sun is now in Leo, the sign opposing the full moon. Leo is the sign that rules the 5th house, which can take our thoughts to a heart-centered place as we fulfill true self-expression through pleasure and creative arts.

Although Aquarius is an air sign, it is represented by a symbol for water, two waves. Aquarius is the water bearer, the one who carries water to all those in need in order to replenish, to cleanse. During this full moon, the water bearer can bring forth all the gifts of Jupiter in Cancer, including emotional expansion, which will allow us to lead from the heart.

Considering the abundance of water energy in the last month and the lasting effects of the Grand Water Trine in Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces from July 17th-19th, this full moon is very connected to the source of life and motion that is water. In fact all full moons carry a wave of emotion as the Moon rules the watery sign of Cancer.

This full moon draws in the flowing energy of the Aquarian female, who moves into the future with courage and independence, but with the light of her heart and her mind. The Aquarian goddess will move us in the direction of our soul as we speak our truth. We must let go of the protective Cancer mother who puts her babies’ needs before her own. The goddess assures us that putting ourselves first will lead to greater prosperity for all. She gives us the clarity to speak our truth, understanding that while it may hurt others, there is a soul desire to be filled.

Mars in Cancer gives power and determination to our feelings. Mercury, now turning direct in Cancer, allows us to express these feelings after several weeks of reflection while in retrograde motion. The Aquarian intellect will allow us to sort out our feelings even further and add a dose of practicality to our Mars decisions. The asteroid Pallas is also now in Cancer and will provide us with an internal need to uphold justice, heal those suffering and represent peace to the world.

Happy Full Moon 🙂 Much love & light to you…xoxoxo
