New Moon in Scorpio

New Moon in Scorpio

It’s the new moon in Scorpio, and it’s an invitation to finally release those things that aren’t serving us so that we may manifest our most aligned lives. This intense new moon plus Venus in retrograde may inspire anxiety, despair, shame, doubt, or other heavy emotions, so breathe, rest, and care for yourself the next day or two while the fragments of your old self are still fading.

Once you’ve weathered the storm, take the time this week to approach your goals from a space of metamorphosis, maximum impact, and ingenuity. How can you shift your own – and others’ – experience to a more improved way of being? What can you do to affect those around you in a positive way? What can you create to benefit the world? Expand your viewpoint using these considerations and see how it changes your overall perspective.

The energy lately and the approach of the Pleaidian alignment has stimulated massive spiritual growth and a high number of multidimensional downloads. An overabundance of energy can stimulate physical and external symptoms. Make sure to keep yourself grounded during this time by carrying a grounding crystal or by using another grounding method.

Work with ruby, charoite, amazonite, and pink moonstone (the technical name for moonstones ranging from beige to peach, with a white sheen) for impactful manifestation, spiritual growth, and enlightened truth.


New Moon in Libra: Balance and Introspection

New Moon in Libra: Balance and Introspection

It’s the new moon in Libra, and this week’s primary focus is balance. This energy is amplified by Venus retrograde in Scorpio, which, when combined with Libra’s well developed thought processes, is inspiring many of us to reassess, refigure, and readjust in multiple areas. At the same time, the tumultuous events of recent weeks are mostly dying down, and we’re entering a period of relative quiet, which is perfect for silent consideration.

What have you noticed that you’d like to shift or rebalance? Is there a pattern or habit that you’d like to transform? Often the most subtle hints come from our partnerships, and with the new moon energy, this is a great place to start looking. Recognition and acceptance of ourselves and our ways of being go a long way toward personal evolution, and any areas that you consciously focus on now can be improved over this moon cycle. The beauty of the new moon in Libra is that the energy is less about digging deep and unearthing the weeds – you’ve done that part. Now it’s more about pure development and refinement of the soil that you’ve tilled.

Not sure where to start? Think of the things in which you still find the most resistance. Are you incredibly neat, and does it bother you when others aren’t? Do you tend to get road rage while driving? Do you love your family but fight to hold your tongue regarding your sister’s choice in friends? Each of these points and others like them, inconsequential as they seem, can influence your life dramatically. It’s about the energetic signature that they carry and the underlying attachments that you have; these are all energies that can be redesigned to influence you more positively.

As you’re working with the new moon in Libra to reach new personal heights, don’t forget to balance yourself in the process. While it’s incredibly easy to get caught up in one area, especially when focused on improvement, it’s generally not the healthiest approach. Make sure that you work to adequately balance family, friends, career, and more in a way that feels right to you.

Work with agate, amazonite, bloodstone, or blue aventurine for balance, introspection, and self-improvement.


Full Moon in Pisces: Integrate the Magical with the Mundane

Full Moon in Pisces: Integrate the Magical with the Mundane

Welcome to the full moon in Pisces! This week’s energy is all about integration of the magical with the mundane, which means that it’s time to infuse some light into your standard routine. Have you been holding back in some way or hiding yourself from the spotlight? In what ways do you shine that you’ve neglected to share with others?

It’s likely that your special brand of amazing is needed right now in some way – be it at work, among friends or family, or in your community. What unique traits can you offer to help others? The Pisces moon is the perfect time to discover those traits and bring them to the surface for enjoyment.

If you haven’t yet been called toward your deeper purpose but are starting to feel the yearning to know what exactly it is, this moon offers some serious potential for manifestation of your highest self. What are your dreams and values? How do you wish to impact the world? What is the legacy that you wish to leave? Pisces, the emotive idealist, can inspire you to reach new heights, especially when paired with the practical and hardworking Virgo sun.

Work with amazonite, dendritic opal, Botswana agate, or polychrome jasper to ground the etheric Pisces energy while motivating you to achieve new heights.
