The Moon still continues through Sagittarius guiding and encouraging us to seek or expand our understanding of the world around us, whether it be through booking a trip, going in nature or watching a documentary on you tube. The world is you oyster make the most of it and your new spark of excitement for life.
Neptune will also form a square aspect the Moon. This harsher energy means we are more sensitive and get hurt easily. This is because you are extremely emotionally sensitive and this in turn can bring strange feelings or experiences that leave you questioning reality and your vulnerability. It would be wise to remember during this transit that chances are that you are not perceiving things correctly, your emotions and feelings are all over the shop, so it makes this evening the perfect time to retreat and have some alone time. Take a nap, run a bath or get lost in your favorite TV show.
Today you may have a clear sense of your own wisdom, but remember that not everyone sees the world through your eyes. It’s not a day to push people s limits and beliefs. Today if you can practice some self-control and patience may learn something new and unexpected.
Have a great day!
Early this morning and late last night while you were sleeping the second eclipse of the month, a Full Moon lunar eclipse occurred. Lunar Eclipses are just like regular Full Moon only stronger, its effects will be felt for the next 6 months. During this Full Moon lunar eclipse, we are offered a unique opportunity to reset our emotions along with a chance to clear away much discomfort or old energy from recent months. Think back over the past few months? Can you see a past issue or problem that clearly has seemed beyond view until now? Open your eyes, you may be surprised at what you have missed over the past few months that is now so clearly obvious.
This month’s Full Moon is in the playful sign of Leo. A Full Moon traditionally is when the Sun and the Moon are at 180 degrees of each other, this mean the Sun in Aquarius forms an opposition with the Moon in Leo. A Full Moon is a completion point of the Luna cycle. As it is completely illuminated with light, it showers us with not only Luna but solar energy. Lunar Eclipse’s interrupt this recharging of the Moon that is why eclipses are so powerful, important and its effects last six months.
This Full Moon in Leo will be fiery, energetic, charged and upbeat! This Moon will also be a Super Moon, meaning it appears much larger to our naked eye here on earth. The total lunar eclipse at 0 degrees Leo will mark the half way point of the current Eclipse season we are in. We had a partial Solar eclipse in Capricorn on 5th January, 2019. Eclipse are basically a radical time of change, growth and healing, and this Eclipse lines up with the North Node which is all about our destiny and karma.
This month, the Sun is in Aquarius at 0 degrees. It will be focused mainly on service to humanity. Aquarius is looking to the future and learning about how it can make life better for everyone as a whole. Its focus is at a more of a local point, its intelligent, witty, loves technology and its advancement. Aquarius asks “how can I be of service to others”. It’s interested in learning and making positive, radical change. This energy will be illuminating and charging up the beautiful Moon this month!
The Moon represent the most sensitive parts of us, it’s all about who we are and how we feel. The Moon is sitting at 0 degrees in Leo. In Leo, our inner child or your internal feelings are magnified and heightened! You want to explore, you want to feel alive, you are self-motivated and life becomes 10 shades of dramatic. You will find that you want to harness your power, you will get a much-needed cosmic confidence boost. You will be the life of the party, communicating and interacting with others will be a high priority over the coming weeks. Leo is ruled by the Sun, and we all know the Sun is the center of the solar system as is Leo personality, it illuminating, its life, it’s all about you and how you are as a person, and it represents your identity and sense of self. Leo loves being confident, it’s about “you being you” and not compromising that for no one! Leo’s energy encompass optimism, being enthusiastic and enjoying life! Its fiery energy can burn through obstacles singe any stagnant energy that’s holding you back!
This Super Eclipse Moon is sitting next to the north node in 26 degrees Cancer. Whenever the Moon is near the north node it’s pulling energy in, karmic/ destiny energy. Numerology speaking 26 degrees adds up to eight. Eight is the number of abundance and power. So not only will we feel the effects of this powerful Moon, we will have the added bonus of north node in Cancer to help us achieve our goals and desires. Perhaps it’s wise to remember that Cancer is ruled by the Moon, and lunar eclipses bring to attention our inner emotions, what’s working in our life, relationships, our home life and how we can heal and transform those areas. In particular things that have been brewing under the surface, you will find surface up for transformation and change… Expect Fun, laughter and love as well as our relationships, children and family will be under a spotlight and become very important to us. Imagine a lioness taking care of her cubs! All these energies are intertwined and illuminated in us for the next 6 months. Make the most out of these energies. It’s time to not only get in touch with ourselves but those around us we love.
This Lunar Eclipse will have the ability to get us to review and access at our own emotions, our needs and what we “feel” is lacking from our life. The polarity between Leo and Aquarius is going to deal with our personal and our impersonal self, the key this Full moon is to find a balance between our egotistic, confidence and self-expressive side and the part of us that wants to help others, that is selfless and objective. The Leo Moon is proud, self-reliant and dramatic Aquarius Sun is values a more team player and individual approach to life.
Lunar Eclipses trigger a self-awareness in all of us, it allows matters come to light. From areas of your life that only may need a fine tune to areas that need a complete revamp. With so much energy floating around you should take a look at your natal chart for a clue to where you need to put your energy. See what areas of Leo rules over what house, this can give your insight to the areas that may come into focus now. Deep down inside, despite all we ignore we know that change is necessary for growth.
On the shadow side with Leo Moon, you may face challenges or small hurdles with dramatic self-expression, resulting in your ‘inner-child’ being on full display. Over reacting, being overly dramatic, self-centered and always the center of attention, also watch out for the urge for temper tantrums. Another dark side includes taking situations and emotions to extreme for example arrogance, vanity and self-absorption Remember with a Leo Moon “Pride before a fall”. With an awareness of these tendency, it would be wise to determine if this full expression is in your best interest and adjust your behaviour and actions accordingly.
Happy Full Moon Day!

As we awake this morning, the Moon is in dreamy Pisces, making it a little harder to get out of bed and a bit less productive than you normally could be, not the best news for your boss. The Moon spends most of the day in Pisces so we can expect to be more creative, intuitive and sensitive. Day dream big today, have a nap if you find time or go and have some “You” time to recharge yourself from all the busyness of life. Pisces Moon day’s however are not so good for anything mentally or physical, oh and watch out for being overly sensitive and moody, no one likes arguments or drama at this joyful time of year.
On a more uplifting note, Venus in Scorpio semisextiles Jupiter in Sagittarius. Bringing together the planet of luck and abundance with the plant of beauty and love. With these two powerful planets aligning, it means there is great potential to have a great day. A day to get out and socialize, take your partner on a date, catch up with friends. If the energy of the Pisces Moon hasn’t made you susceptible to sleepiness and needing some separation from others, go out and have some fun, get into the festivities of Christmas and enjoy life today.
New Moon in Sagittarius 2018.
Last week we had a New Moon on Friday, December 7th, in the sign of Sagittarius.
The Sun and Moon conjunct each at 15 degrees and 7 minutes, which created the darkness of the New Moon. This New Moon occurs in the flamboyant sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is represented by the Centaur. This New Moon will be not only recharging but pulling in the traits of Sagittarius! The energy is that of the Archer, the optimistic, eager to learn, to explore, is enthusiastic, honest, independent and adventurous. This New Moon is in the fiery, mutable adventurous Sagittarius, and we all know Sagittarius love fresh starts and new beginning. It is a time to align yourself with the New Moon energy, to feel whats energy is being pulled in by the Moon and in this case, its optimistic, fun-loving, happy, adventurous, philosophical and helpful energy of Sagittarius.
It’s a New Moon, so pull it in energy, channel it, meditate on it, journal it and it will give you ideas, dreams for the future. It is the light at the end of tunnel we have been waiting for. We have the chance to make our dreams become reality in the most positive way.
Over the next few days under this fire sign influence. It will give us a cosmic push and sparks up the fire within you. Its going to give you energy to explore! The motto is, if you can feel it, want it you can have it.
This month it is wise to focus and incorporate these energies and qualities when making your New Moon intentions. The Sadge centaur is rare, and is one of hope. The Centaur, has the bottom half of a horse. His top half is man ( Human). He is ready to shoot his bow and arrow to get to a goal or reach its desired destination. This symbol of the Centaur represents momentum, transcending our animistic natures, giving us the strength, freedom and speed to gallop to our goals.
Unlike a the full moon which focus on purging old ways, a New Moon is optimistic, a magical time for planning and seeding your intentions. It’s a time of birthing new ideas, dreams and planting seeds of intention you want to bring into your life over the next few months. It is an opportune time to attract your heartfelt, wholehearted longings by doing a New Moon ritual focused on manifestation and birth.
Sagittarius is all about adventures, learning , explore and visionaries. So when making your new moon wishes here are some great ideas to incorporate into your manifestation goals. Perhaps its time to plan your next epic vacation. Make a dream board on what places you want to see over this Christmas break,. Sadge love to explore the unknown and different cultures. Go camping, book a last-minute flight, start a holiday or education savings fund. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, where in the world is calling at you?
Sagittarius as we know are very intrigued in regards to learning, teaching and expanding their horizon. This month, makes it a personal mission to seek wisdom in unusual places. Maybe your new-found excitement for travel or a higher understanding of the world especially ones that can take you to places that connect you with new cultures and new profound philosophies. Suspend your judgment or criticism and take it all in. Be the light you want to see in others. Better yet, be your own guru.
This New moon gives us the courage to expand our horizons, and gain confidence and optimism from a broader perspective.It also provides us with power to focus on goals that will increase our understanding and awareness.
Happy New Moon Manifesting!

As you wake up today, the morning energy building may leave you feeling anxious and stressed! As the Sun in Scorpio is moving towards a semi-square to Saturn in Capricorn! As this building tension and friction is arising between our conscious self and the lord of karma and master teacher we will be faced with conflicting and harsher energies!Responsibility along with frustrations and limitations will arise today leaving us feeling unsettled. The key for today is to breath and mindful! This is not a day to be controlling however it is a day to control your own reactions and responses so that you are able to answer reasonably rather than react in situations you face.
The Moon moves out of Capricorn and into Aquarius. Meaning we will start to detach from society, old patterns of thinking and feeling and what people call the “Norm”. Break out of your normal routines and unhealthy patterns that hold you back. Engage with the unusual or misunderstood today, as it will help you to open up surprise conversations and activities. Use the influence of this objective Aquarius Moon to break free of bad habits and old toxic ways of thinking and being. Today try to be more rebellious and spontaneous.. To a degree!
As we wake up today we will be entering the darkest point of the Lunar Phase a New Moon. This New Moon in Scorpio is sitting with Jupiter, mere hours before the planet leaves Scorpio and enters Sagittarius which won’t happen again is for over a decade. Traditionally a New Moon is when the Sun and Moon join together. They both will be sitting on each other in 15 degrees Scorpio. A New Moon in our sky looks completely dark, it’s black & the Moon is making herself invisible as the Sun’s rays overtake, she is taking a meditation break and recharging. This month the Moon is recharging itself for the next Luna cycle in the sassy sign of Scorpio. This time of the Luna cycle is all about stopping focusing inward and pulling the energy in and revaluation where yin your life needs changing and working about making a list of changes or intentions you want to plant for the next month. What is it you want to do or achieve this next Luna cycle? Every New Moon gives us a chance to make some life changing decisions each month so use this New Moons energy wisely.
Scorpio is water sign and it’s the sign of the zodiac that dives deepest. Scorpio is associated with intense emotional connections and emotional truth. Diving deep into the emotions of others and along with themselves being a detective and getting down to the nitty-gritty. Scorpio is connected with darker side of life such as all things taboo, secrets, sexuality and the a cult. Scorpio is about transformation, healing and rising out of the ashes and working on a higher self-awareness. Scorpio highlights the importance of bringing what is hidden into the light, to be excavated, and to be brought forth for healing.
With the New Moon in Scorpio, the seeds of intentions you plant will be ones of deep emotional significance. You must be willing to look deeper than usual and take an emotional risk. Scorpio energy invites us to open up and be enlightened by emotional experiences as we also gain a stronger emotional intelligence.
This New Moon in Scorpio will pointing us in a new direction and beginning of powerful changes. It’s going to help us purge old ways of being, feeling, thinking, addictions, old emotional wounds, and burdens and we will seek out new and meaningful enriching feelings and ways of thinking.
For this Scorpio New Moon, set your monthly manifestations around the Scorpio energy. Include intentions to manifest emotional transformation, passion perhaps taking on a new lover or deepening a passionate connection with a current lover, deep introspection and expanding your creativity. Create opportunities for yourself this month either to make yourself happy or someone else be connecting the dots on what motivates, irritates and drives either you or them. Start planting powerful seed by starting a journal or using a New Moon ritual this month to work deeply on self-reflection or perhaps your own hidden secrets.
If you know what house in your birth chart holds or sits in 15° Scorpio, it will give you a greater insight into which area of your life will be most influenced or effected this New Moon. If you don’t know what house is involved with Scorpio energy, just take a moment focus on your breath work, intuition and meditate on the answer,! If you have Scorpio in your chart see which house it is in for example if it is in your 4th house, which represents our home, laying roots and family life, set an intention to transform and intensity anything you want to change in regards to your home/ family. By doing this it will help you become more aware or clarify where any issue are or areas that need to be changed and transformed.
This New Moon forms a harmonious connection with Neptune and Pluto! Making it a very powerful, healing, spiritual and extremely intuitive New Moon. Nevertheless we also see Jupiter and Uranus move towards a quincunx. Jupiter is at the end of its cycle in Scorpio but it manages a couple of hours before it moves into Sagittarius. With saying that, we need to be careful and oversee how much we act on our impulses, our energy is chaotic and we may feel rushed into making decisions and with Uranus energy into the mix you can expect the unexpected, expect a spanner in the works or a sudden change in your direction. Perhaps it’s not the best day to make profound decisions until you know or are clear on what you really want. It’s a day for contemplation and review. Jupiter grows, expands and is the Midas touch, making anything it touches abundant, while its transit through Scorpio over the past 12 months, Jupiter has tried to teach us how to shed old skins and beliefs so that we might get closer to our own sources of power. Where our intention goes energy flows!
Later tonight or anytime on Thursday, set some time aside and plan or perform your New Moon ritual. Keep it simple but hold sacred place within yourself to honor this magical ritual. Click here if you need help performing one How to create a New Moon ritual.
If you are short of time or the process is to overwhelming take a moment to write down what changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the coming month and potentially up to the next 6 months.
Today’s big news is Mercury leaves the depths of Scorpio behind and enters Sagittarius. Mercury is the communication planet that rules over our mental realm especially focusing on the way we communicate, make plans and think! This new placement will shift the conscious mind and intellect from water to fire, yin to yang, depths to greet heights. Sagittarius is represented by the Archer, the explorer, which means our possibilities are endless while Mercury is traveling here. When Mercury is in Sagittarius we tend to find our energy is more focused on a mission, we seek experiences that broaden our horizon, we follow our dreams and reach goals. The mind wants to grow beyond its boundaries and limits. The way we think and communicate will be very forward thinking. You’ll notice that Mercury prefers to observe the grains of sand and that Sagittarius will see the box of sand, aka the bigger picture. Sagittarius loves to travel, they are the great philosopher, the teacher, they thrive on learning, exploring and expanding. However it’s important to note that the less favourable traits of Sagittarius, especially now the communication planet is in play! We may overstep or forget where the line is and say things that may offend others. Sagittarius is blunt, saying exactly what’s on its mind, you may think you what you are is reasonable and normal but others could take great offend to. Sagittarius is a fire sign, driven to take action, a philosopher and truer picture” visionary. Mercury, on the other hand, will focus on the finer details, analysing every single one of its options. You can see how these two energies may rub together and cause friction?
The Moon continues through sensitive Cancer until later today when it enters playful Leo. Don’t give yourself a hard time during this Moon’s transit, especially when you find yourself reaching for comfort food. You may long to retreat from the active world and find comfort in your home and loved ones. Perhaps you feel more domestic & nostalgic than usual. This however may change as the evening progress on when the Moon shakes off the safety of home and its comfort to enter dramatic expressive Leo, your spirited will lift as you seek out more interaction and excitement.
The Moon in Libra forms a square to Saturn in Capricorn. The Moon in Libra is very sociable and creates or tries to create a harmonious and balanced atmosphere, its goal is make everyone get along and reduce stress especially in relationships, as it forms this square to Saturn in Capricorn there is gong to be some friction between socializing and work and meeting your own needs and reaching personal goals. Achieving what you want to accomplish is possible and the key to this is using your time wisely today and finding a balance, we get an extra cosmic push from the Libra Moon that will encourage us to go to extra mile to get along and make things work.
The Sun in Scorpio trines retrograde Neptune in Pisces, as we head towards this trine aspect which will help us align our conscious self and the planet that represents our spirituality, intuition and mysticism. As the day goes on we may get sudden burst of inspiration, our creativity increases as well as our romantic and dreamy side. Its also great news for all the artistic folk out there. We are ready to align and to tap into our intuition so pay special attention to emotions and inner experience. There are wonders out there to discover with this influence so do not dismiss anything that comes such as ideas and thoughts to quickly. Pay attention to emotions, intuition and inner experience. there are riches there to discover.
The Sun in Scorpio sesquiquadrates retrograde Chiron in Pisces. This will create unwanted pressure and possible friction between our conscious self and ego and the part of use that need’s healing and transformation.The Wounded Healer has the ability to can bring up old wounds and pains particularly around past hurts and old emotions that have been stuffed away or you deny exist. Today be willing to face what is within or what has surfaced is the key!
The Sun in Scorpio trines the Moon in Cancer. The Sun in Scorpio represents our identity, saying this… our inner energy is more intense, emotional and we feel more inclined to seek out hidden truths no matter the cost. The Moon however, is all about our emotional feelings, and in its home sign of Cancer that means that part of us that loves to nurture, be connected to family, to love, along with our intuitive and sensitive side and will be the emotions/energies strongest felt today.
Mercury conjuncts the lucky planet Jupiter. So today there will be a large focus on the way you communicate with others and how you communicate will determine how you bring about luck and expansion into your life and into theirs. This Mercury/Jupiter conjunction also inspires optimism, hope and a hint of excitement. Mercury and Jupiter reach their final alignment in star sign of Scorpio, which leads us to gaining insight into a problem, talking through issues, and seeing
Today is a unique day! It’s going to be all about forgiveness and healing. It will be about the “Why” you actually feel out with someone, or insight to any other type of miscommunication in any relationship breakdown. Healing is very possible today yay! Reconciliation is the theme for today as all parties will be able to acknowledge the part they played in a relationship breakdown. Have you been estranged from a family member, a partner or close friend? Today is the day to pick up the phone and say “i want you back in my life”. This is largely to do with Venus retrograde in Scorpio. Venus being in Scorpio is a highly emotional position for Venus to sit in. Besides being very passionate, intense, and oh so very dark and sensual Venus in Scorpio treasures closeness along with our most valuable relationships are extremely important, actually overwhelming and consuming at times. So if you notice those around you or directly connected to you are having relationship problems this is due to the vulnerability Scorpio feels, the fear of being close or exposing your softer side to others, it’s also stemming from hidden truths and feelings being brought to the surface for healing and transformation. Dint put yourself in an all or nothing” situation if you think healing is available especially until October 31st when Venus enters into a new sign.
With Mercury in Scorpio, Venus in Scorpio and the Sun in Scorpio expect the energy to be intense and passionate, as you seeks truths in all that is hidden and hush-hush. Our communication and thought process especially around the matters of our heart, personal matters and the way we look at our self-will be more probing, deeply emotional and intense. Scorpio is great for self-healing and transformation if you are ready to take a real look at yourself and accept the parts of you that you may not like. It’s wonderful that we all get an added boost of passion, mystery and strength, just watch out for the less favorable traits as jealously, manipulation and being vindictive.
However, it’s not all so nurturing and happy days… unfortunately we see a clash between Mars and Saturn. This morning expects to feel some tension rising as Mars forms a semi-square with Saturn. With these two masculine energies against each other today you may feel restricted and repressed. Saturn energy is all about learning, structure and mastering your life. Mars is the planet that drives our will and motivation so when they go head to head expect your strong desires to succeed and create to lead to road blocks and complications. Negative emotions such as frustration, jealously, anger and tempers will flare up today especially in regards to authority figures such as your boss, manager or family members. Don’t let yourself be effected by the limiting and rejecting feelings that may arise from the built up influences of Saturn and Mars, let your desire of finishing goals and ripping down restrictions and old beliefs be the drive you need today. This is not a winning or overly pleasant transit and the best approach now is a not be over defensive but flexible especially if are feeling more resistance, just know everyone around you is being influenced the same so if tempers arise de-escalate the mood quickly even if you know you have not done a thing to feel someone else wrath.
Patience, perseverance and empathy will be your strong points today!
With so much going ion today just take it one person and one step at a time! Happy Monday gang!
