This FULL MOON’s Soundtrack: Rescue Me by One Republic [MUSIC VIDEO]

The Challenge: careless or risky behavior with a sense of urgency that can lead to injury or heartache, ruthlessness that disconnects from supportive networks and people, nervousness, aggression, bipolar tendencies with delusions of grandeur

The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: greater self-trust that enables you to act bravely with powerful presence and confidence, homecoming/returning to a familiar place and reconnecting with loved ones, completion, unity, feeling a possibility of new beginnings within existing or newly developed relationships, new creative endeavors, past-life and/or ancestral healing that ends patterns of abuse or corruption

We come full circle as this Full Moon syncs with the 4 of Wands. This signifies the completion of a cycle with the promise of a new beginning.

The immediate and forceful action of the masculine unites with the open and gentle nature of the feminine. This is sultry and sexy energy, making it extra creative — passionate and fertile. It’s the ending of something that makes it so seductive, like hot make-up sex after a long and brutal fight with your lover or a first date after a divorce is finalized.

We move from one energy to the next. The vibrations are so opposite, so different and new, that it sparks excitement from within that fuels a totally fresh start.

Confident, creative and yet contained. 4’s signify a newly developed foundation. A launching pad. Even in the fiery sign of Aries, and within the suit of wands, it is steady. Shown in the image on the Tarot card above, the wands fuse together, forming the shape of a wheel. Forward motion is clear, and the fire remains the central focus. When used to warm the heart and light a new path, the conditions are highly favorable. But when not used in that way, we’re just spinning our wheels.

There are powerful influences that both challenge and support the vibration of completion at the time of this Full Moon.

I Smell Gasoline

Just before reaching peak Full Moon status, the Moon moves through the space where Chiron, our inner-wounded-warrior, is traveling at a slow pace in the zone of Aries,. This energy reminds me of the smell of gasoline…. Recently I was shopping at a store and the smell of gas was alarmingly strong. Feeling a bit nauseated, I mentioned something about it aloud, and a gentleman standing in line next to me said he had spilled gas on his shoes earlier in the day.

It’s hard to shake that kind of aroma. Once you’ve got it on you, it lingers. It naturally heightens our senses because we consciously associate gasoline with fire and danger. And subconsciously we know we are a little more vulnerable when we have it on us… A tiny spark becomes a lethal threat.

As the Moon waxes, passing over this vibe of Chiron, we pick up on an inner-sense of urgency and vulnerability. Like a noxious scent, something unseen and intangible but tough to ignore, it travels with us into the Full Moonbeams, even if we can’t exactly identify what that odd feeling is. Something can feel really uneasy inside.

Flame-Thrower?

We could feel particularly vulnerable and exposed now. There’s an undeniably difficult vibe with Pluto drilling into us for more transformation. As if our reality hasn’t changed enough already this year?!

Feelings of being cornered or threatened can make it very tempting to evade situations. Uncomfortable confrontations where we will be called on to take greater responsibility than we have before (especially within the realm of relationships) may arise.

When it comes time to face your own shadows, your own actions —maybe even your own shame or dysfunctional patterns — will you?

We see a lot of what I refer to as “flame-throwers” these days. People who blame and seek to simply destroy anyone who dares disagree with them. Those who are quick to label total strangers as xenophobes or Nazis.. I envision this cowardly behavior to be much like centuries ago, of King’s men riding up on horses pitching torches onto thatched-roof houses, with their chests puffed up and a self-proclaimed sense of honor or bravery.

It’s not brave to throw a flame, to blame or shame someone who believes something different than you. Anyone can do it, although many choose not to. It appears to be some act of bravery, for some sort of group-identified “greater good”. But is it really?

It takes courage to take responsibility for our own choices and our own lives. It is much easier to bitch and complain about a situation than it is to admit that it’s a choice you make everyday to stay in it. The great thing about this time right now, though, is that when we are willing to explore other options and open to new opportunities, they are readily available. (Thanks, Jupiter!)

… Or Fire-Breather?

Years ago, one of my friends invited me to an art exhibit where she was doing a fire-breathing performance. It was both exhilarating and terrifying to watch, as I’m not much of a dare-devil myself.. I was able to see a bit of the behind the scenes, to witness how she prepared to breathe and dance with fire. There was a strange calm, an admirable respect for fire and a keen awareness of her skin’s vulnerability when working with it. Extreme care was taken to make her fire-proof, while also able to feed the flames.

Breathing fire is not for the faint of heart. It requires a passion, responsibility and a level of courage that most people don’t have.

It’s far easier to throw a flame, than to consume it yourself. Even more challenging to actually make it look easy.. even beautiful and captivating.


The spectrum of the Aries expression also bears the lower end, which includes partaking in risky acts simply for the adrenaline rush. There can also be a deep insecurity because the image of what makes one brave or bold is hard to attain. The higher end of this vibration includes a connection and commitment to the endeavors that one is passionate about, and a strong sense of self-trust...
— Nadiya Shah, Astrology Realized

Let’s reach for the Higher end of this spectrum. Shall we?

A New Artistic Flare



Artistic expression is blessed at this time. With such intense beams from Pluto we may reach for support from Jupiter. And it’s gladly given. This is the stuff masterpieces are made of. The art that burst into life now can become an entirely new genre, never seen by the world before. As one cycle completes, and a new one is born, the pain we feel deep within can be healed through the release and revelation of our natural talents and art.

Like fire- breathing, there’s a reverence for the danger that is ever-present in Life itself. Now we can get in touch with our impulse to create new things, and experience life on a new level. We may feel more willing to risk go further and taking the first step now, especially when fear or pain is twisting us in knots. We could fall in Love with life again, in ways we never imagined we would.

It may sound odd, but it’s in the openness to new ways of creating art and expressing ourselves in ways that are connect our will with our heart, we are able to rescue ourselves. From the pain, the drama, the intensity of this reality shift. The smoke, mirrors and often deception, We rise above that, through beauty. Through love, Through our willingness to become one with the Light and simply bring that down to Earth.

Many may feel like they’ve finally returned home to themselves, finally free and perhaps with fewer F’s to give, through this brilliant process..

Revision Quest | New Moon in Sagittarius | December 2018

{A New Moon happens every month.  This is the part of the cycle when the Moon aligns with the Sun.  It's a great time for us to set new intentions, plant new seeds (literally or metaphorically) and tune into our intuition and other senses since this is the darkest time of the month.  It's like clicking refresh. The page temporarily disappears while it reloads.  This is the opportunity we get every month to do that in our own lives.}

The Sun & Moon come together for the last time in 2018 as a New Moon in Sagittarius, the sign of the Optimistic Archer & Philosopher, on December 7th, 2018. Here I'll share my take on the energies of this New Moon, including my intuitive insight from what's going on in the cosmos (astrological influence) and wisdom from the Tarot Card aligned with it, so you can leverage this collective energy and move thru this phase with greater confidence. Prepared and aligned with the vibes

Prepared and aligned with the vibes


This New Moon’s vibes are an opportunity to reflect on the whole year and get in touch with the pure essence of what' wants to emerge… perhaps a totally new direction or a more aligned message to go along with what you are currently doing/creating in your life; a level UP.

It offers a spark of hope and some much needed optimism. Also, a reminder that a journey is just beginning, one with great potential if you can connect to it with fervor and deep Soul-fire.

Sagittarius Decan II.png

Happening in Sagittarius Decan II, this New Moon aligns with the 9 of Wands. So break out your arsenal of Magic Wands… you’ve got more power than you realize.



Notice the wand in the center of this Tarot card? That represents the alignment of the conscious and unconscious. Powerful stuff. The true strength that comes from within.

You know the saying. . . What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

It’s a budding self-realization, the kind that awakens the power within. It’s a new horizon… you can never go back to who you were before, because you have gained wisdom. With that wisdom, a new world opens up to you.

The trick is to use this new-found strength as a force for good, not with a chip on your shoulder. It’s time to hold yourself to a higher standard, because you can handle it. But that can feel scary when you really get that.

We are still under the influence of a few planets moving through post-retrograde shadows and Mercury just stationed direct… fueling energy ripe with questioning, doubting, reviewing and reflecting.



Let the realization of your own great strength and wisdom rise up, and give yourself time to gain clarity.



This is the final New Moon of the year.. supporting us in wrapping up loose ends in our lives so that we can fully step it UP in 2019. It’s like we are being primed for the new energies that are unfolding.


Signs to Watch For 

[The astrological vibes affect the mode of operation, if you will, for how we tend to receive our signs. It's like this -- if you know you'll be getting an answer via email, you'll check your inbox, right? So, here's how the messages may show up for you, so you know where to look.  You'll understand the mode that Spirit may use to contact you or guide you.]

It’s in the realms of Sagittarius that we explore beyond what we know through different cultures, people, places and experiences.

Signs may appear for you that open you up in ways that feel new and a bit foreign. A mentor, professor or thought leader may say something that sparks some new kind of realization that helps you really make sense of things in your life.

This is expansive and eye-opening. I consider Sagittarius the energy of ArchAngels and Ascended Masters. Stay open to witnessing or sensing angelic presence in all their glory. Big energies can show you the way forward, lead you toward joy. You can join me for a free event on Friday, December 6, for an integration and energy healing circle where we’ll be invoking the ArchAngels.
