Full Corn Moon In Aquarius

fullcornmoon-2017

Tonight is the Full Corn Moon, named because this is a time of the corn harvests. The August Full Moon is also known as the Sturgeon Moon because this was the time when wild sturgeon and salmon would be abundant in rivers and streams. At this time, our emotions will be heightened, our senses will be sharp, things that were hidden or in the shadows can now be seen.

If you have been feeling stuck in a situation or that everything has been standing still lately, get ready, because this Full Moon will be bringing with it a wind of change. The whole of earth is going through a massive transition at the minute. Summer is fading and Autumn is coming in, leaves are starting to change color and are falling from trees, plants and flowers are dying and seeding the earth for next Spring. But at the same time, crops in fields are flourishing with the harvest; fruit is now at it’s most ripe. We will feel this energy of transformation, and we should use it to help transform and shape ourselves into what we want to be.

The Full Moon is in the sign of Aquarius. The time is potent to follow our hearts and to create new pathways. We have shed our skin. Now is the time to emerge and start turning the visions we have of ourselves into something real. There will be some deep emotional changes happening now; don’t fight them. Let them come to the surface. We must move with the changes, allow what wants to come forth, and trust our inner knowledge and guidance.

Your enthusiasm, idealism, and creativity will be at an all time high. You will be bursting with new ideas and energy. You could have sudden insights into the future and where it is you are going. Dreams will be wild and vivid and could even be prophetic. You can move from a breakdown to a breakthrough. You are experiencing a transformation in consciousness, and big changes are coming.

Sometimes your growth can feel weird and strange when you are no longer connecting to your past. But truly, the old way of living no longer works for you. You are experiencing new aspects of yourself and of life. You are giving birth to the new you, and giving birth is painful. This is real work. This is real growth. There is so much to celebrate right now. Realize that to live out new, promising visions there is a need to restructure and grow. A new vision of the future will be illuminated, but it is up to you to figure out what you do with it.

Most of all tonight’s Full Moon will be about healing. Let the winds of the Aquarius air sign blow away your negative thoughts and feelings and take you on a journey of discovery. Let go of the past and welcome in the future. This is the harvest and it is time to start reaping what we have sown, your hard work will start paying off. Take the gifts life offers you and make the most of them.

Have a Blessed Full Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.

New Moon In Aquarius

newmooninaquarius-2017
Tonight is the first New Moon of the year. A new moon, a new year, and a new you. This is the time to cast off 2016 once and for all and start our journey into 2017.

The January New Moon is one of the significant starting energies to the year ahead, and is going to help blow away the cobwebs of 2016.

As you have probably heard by now, 2016 was a year of endings, which means that 2017 is a year of new beginnings. This death and rebirth cycle is playing out in all of our lives in some way or another, and perhaps in the coming weeks you are going to start feeling the “rebirth” occurring. This rebirth energy won’t fully shift into gear until the Spring Equinox, however the January New Moon in Aquarius is definitely going to start setting the wheels in motion.

A new cycle is beginning for you. The Aquarius New Moon can empower you to move in a bold direction. You may break free from bad habits and relationships. You are no longer distracted by fear and doubt. You are ready to be who you were born to be. This is a time of great luck, so go out and try new things. Use this lucky time to grow businesses, start new jobs, go to interviews, find a new love. Often when things don’t feel good in our lives, we want to change everything all at once, but take small steps, just change one small thing at a time.

Our emotions will be high and confusing for the next few days, we may be feeling happy and overjoyed one minute, then sad and crying the next. You may have problems sleeping and you may have weird, vivid dreams. Our nerves may be on edge, and arguments and misunderstandings could flare up. But don’t worry, as this will pass soon. This is our body, mind, and spirit aligning.

If you start to see your challenges from a different perspective, you will see your challenges as opportunities for growth, they keep your life fresh and lively. Your life can be much freer than you may have realized. New opportunities will emerge. Believe in your dreams coming true. Believe when you wish upon a star. A star is probably shining on you right now. The New Moon is opening up a new pathway for you. Perhaps it was there all along and now your eyes are fully open.

This New Moon will strengthen the impact for change. It is setting the tone for the New Year. Don’t allow anything to hold back your dreams and desires. Listen to your intuition. We know intuition is your inner knowledge, so allow your Higher Self to guide you to new relationships and goals. Sudden unexpected opportunities can come to you from out of the blue at this time, seize them and make the most of any opportunity that comes your way.

There are new perspectives to be enjoyed now and this reminds us that no matter how far we may have strayed from where we want to be, we can always get back there as long as there is hope and the will to move and grow.

Aquarius is ruled by the element of Air, use the energy of this New Moon to allow the winds of change to come. 2017 is going to be an amazing and lucky year, so take this moment to enjoy the new vibration and the fresh start that this New Moon offers.

Have a Blessed New Moon and may the Goddess watch over you.

New Moon In Aquarius & Lunar New Year!

newmooninaquarius

Tonight is the New Moon in the constellation of Aquarius. We are right at the edge of Spring. Earths energy is getting ready to transform. We move between worlds, we transition between chapters. Aquarius, the water bearer brings forth the cleansing, fresh winds of change ahead.

We have the power to birth something at this New Moon, be it a new direction in our lives, a creative project, a new career path, or even a new awareness of who we are. This powerful New Moon can initiate many things and it’s up to us to set our intentions and choose the direction we want to head into. New Moons are like seeds, our intentions need to be planted and fertilized and tended with care in order for them to grow, blossom, and bloom.

Aquarius is a very creative sign. This is a time to let your mind wander into fantasy, open yourself up to your surroundings and let yourself dream. Doing something artistic now can be a big release for you whether this be drawing, writing, poetry, crafts, or even just decorating your home. Give your life a little color and flare, try something new, do something a little different with your hair or makeup, be a bit bolder in the way you dress.

This New Moon asks you to look at things in a different way, to see the potential in everything, even the small, everyday things, to see how things can be improved upon with a little artistic flare. This New Moon offers you the chance to grow, to change, to express your own personal power with style and grace.

The Aquarius New Moon brings the confrontation of the old with the new, it is revolutionary and edgy. A Moon like this is an innovator, the breaker of molds and can be a major catalyst for change. A restless, experimental, inventive mind will bring success. This is a time during which we should solve problems that require thinking “outside of the box”; look to the future with a brand new, positive, and hopeful vision. Let your individuality flourish, walk your own path, this is not the time to follow the crowd this is a time do what you need to in order to grow mentally, physically, and spiritually. Aquarius reminds you to follow the beat of your own drum. Be unique. Be original. Be who you really are.

The message of this New Moon is to find balance. Knowing when to push and when to rest. Take a step back and look at everything more clearly. Now is the time to start clearing out junk, both in our homes and work, as well as in our emotional lives. Out with the old and let in the new is this New Moon’s mantra. Expel negativity and try to let go of any bad thoughts and feelings by looking at how to improve any situations rather than just complain about them. The Aquarius New Moon holds magical healing power. We are in a profound cleansing and clearing cycle. Allow the deep roar emotions emerging from the unconscious to flow and be healed.

Have a blessed New Moon. May the Goddess watch over you.

Blue Moon

blue-moon-tree
Tonight is a Blue Moon. The Blue Moon occurs when there are 2 Full Moons within the same month. The name Blue Moon comes from an ancient word which is “Belewe Moon”, meaning Betrayer Moon. Monthly Moon phases were each given names to prepare for various types of weather and crop rotations, so the extra Full Moon in a month would confuse people, thus giving it the name Betrayer Moon.Tonight’s Full Moon is rising in the constellation of Aquarius. There is so much happening around this Moon in terms of once-in-a-lifetime type chances. It’s as if we are all on the edge of something so big and we have to make the decision to take the path we’ve always taken, or jump into the territory of new possibilities.

This Full Moon in Aquarius is about celebrating our individuality, our little quirks that make us different from everybody else. Let your creativity come out. Do something a little different, dress a little differently, wear your hair a little differently, rebel against the norm. Take a walk on the weird side of life.

Our minds will be clear and uncluttered, we will be able to see things as they really are, we can take off our rose-colored glasses and take a good look at ourselves and the world around us as it is, not how we want it to be. This will also have us asking ourselves if we are happy with where we are and what we’re doing.


moon-blueAs amazing as this Moon will be, and necessary, it’s going to be one that challenges us on every single level. In the build up to this lunar event we may have been feeling restless, or have had an excess of nervous energy. Our pulses may have been racing, and it may have been harder for us to relax or fall asleep at night. Our spirits can sense that we are on the verge of something big, but it’s up to us to initiate change. We are on the threshold of having massive pieces of the puzzle collide.
There may be big changes or upsets in the status quo during the next several weeks. We may find ourselves acting in ways that only a few weeks ago, we never thought possible, but Aquarius is lighting a fire inside of our hearts and daring us to break the boundaries that have held us back for far too long.

While we may feel anxious at all of the possible changes being presented to ourselves, know that the universe won’t bring us anything we aren’t ready for. The truth of it is there is no such thing as the perfect time, so now is as good a time as any.

Everything that we have been going through the past year has been leading up to this Moon. It’s the time of infinite possibilities, of desires bubbling over and manifesting themselves in our lives in ways we never thought possible. No matter what has come in or out of our lives in the past few years, once in a while we are given the chance to have everything we’ve always wanted, we just have to make the choice now to not let it go.

Because certain chances only come around once in a Blue Moon.
