A Whole New World | New Moon in Pisces | March 2019

New Moon MARCH.png

With this New Moon in Pisces (Decan II) aligned with the 9 of Cups, we can feel full to the brim with dreamy, flow-y good vibes. It can be fairy-tale-like and yet, at the same time, we can realize something’s missing or not quite measuring up to the perfection we know is possible. With Mercury stationing retrograde and Uranus crashing into the sign of Taurus (this time to stay for several years) around the same time, these vibes can make way for emotional instability and surprising events that seem to threaten our happy endings.

The Challenge: feelings of loneliness, over-compensating for inner sense of lack or guilt, over-giving, over-indulgence or bingeing, depression, feeling like something’s off, missing or forgotten, self-righteousness, smugness or snark, complacency or lack of willpower, opting for ease above all and resisting responsibility, giving up right before reaching a milestone, settling for good enough, blissful ignorance

The Breakthrough/Potential Wisdom: wish fulfillment or new wishes coming to light, emotional satisfaction, material happiness, in the mood to share and give, connected to infinite Love/willingness to love unconditionally, envisioning new hopes and dreams, on-point law of attraction, synchronicities, deeper connection with true happiness and appreciation through new experiences and celebrations, harmony, beauty, bliss, feeling open to more possibilities, blessings multiplied

Just look at those goblets overflowing with goodness in the imagery of this Tarot card, the 9 of Cups! Everything looks beautifully abundant…. But, it’s not yet complete. It’s like scoring a 9 out of 10. It’s really good, but it’s not perfect. We could do better. And we’ve almost made it. - Almost, being the keyword there.

We may experience feelings of being over-joyed in some way, but it gets tainted by feelings of loneliness, guilt or looming sadness… It may feel fleeting and only temporary and we may want to hold on longer. This could be like achieving some goal or getting the opportunity or recognition of a lifetime, but wishing someone special was there to celebrate with you. Or overwhelming guilt when feeling happy, knowing that others are suffering. There’s a nagging realization that realities differ and we only see one fragment at a time… and we want more. We won’t want to feel good when someone else is suffering, and we won’t want to suffer when someone else is having the time of their life. With Pisces, we want it all to be beautiful and perfect.

Always Had a Vision. . .

I didn’t know how, but I always had a feelin’.” - One of the lines that stands out for me from this song I selected as the soundtrack for this New Moon.

Some desires may be unveiled and feel much more possible now. We can simultaneously get the feeling that our visions are closer than ever to becoming a reality, and yet we don’t know how. It’s still confusing… but high hopes are on tap, none the less.

We’ve gotta feel into it with this New Moon, if we want to make the most of it. That means getting into the feelings of what you want, truly. Let that vision sweep over you. It’s entirely possible now to let that feeling fill you up so fully you may wonder if you are flying or drunk on the nectar of Life. But remember the fine details of that vision of yours…

As I mentioned before with this 9 of Cups in the mix, it’s important to consider what might be missing or could potentially ruin the happy ending you envision. Like losing all the weight you wanted to, but only as a result of getting very sick and being unable to eat, or getting that high-paying dream job, but having no time for friends or a social life. What would you not be willing to sacrifice? What really, really, really matters in the end? (That’s where getting into the feelings of the vision really helps!)

Also…. Does it have to be lonely at the top? I don’t believe so. We’ve got support in changing our deeply rooted, even unconscious, perceptions this year. So as you dream those big dreams and envision your own heaven on Earth, take time to reconsider any preconceived notions and underlying beliefs you hold when it comes to your heart’s desires. These sneaky influences, that can lead to our own self-undoing, are worth becoming more aware of now. (Especially when it comes to those things you’ve wanted forever and can’t seem to catch a break. Now’s your chance to breakthrough that shizzle once and for all!) It’s about creating a new normal; a whole new world for ourselves.

Happy is my natural condition.
Life gives me all I need to be happy.
— Tarot: Mirror of The Soul, Gerd Ziegler

We’re Not in Kansas Anymore.

So many shifts happen all at once alongside this New Moon in Pisces. We could be meeting up against some confusion, ranging from subtle to more serious, and thinking, What now?

Just like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, we could face some bizarre characters and situations. We may not realize how we got here from there. Things don’t quite add up. Now we’re really in it… the realm of the unbelievable and fantastical. It can really take us aback, and make us wonder. We may even be wondering about things we’ve never encountered before in our lives, especially as it relates to sustainability and the Future. On a personal level and on the collective scale.

Chances are pretty good we feel different, but may not be able to find the words or thoughts to make sense of why or exactly how we feel different…. That’s because Mercury is at a stand still on the final degree of Pisces (and the zodiac), stationing retrograde. We may feel compelled to move forward, but feel like we’ve forgotten something very important, which ignites feelings of anxiety, urgency or desperation.

On some level, we know we must trust and have faith, perhaps like we never have before. Remember, in the Wizard of Oz, it wasn’t the yellow brick road that led Dorothy to the Truth. It was her ruby red slippers that made the magic happen. What she already had, and simply hadn’t recognized the power of before, that led her back home.

You had the power all along, my dear.
— Glinda, The Good Witch

Make a Wish!

The 9 of Cups is known by adept Tarot readers as the “wish card”. Our wishes are extra blessed with this New Moon!

While there are certainly some shaky vibes with this one overall, that in no way diminishes the fact that this is the time for renewed hope, a boost of faith and wishes granted. In it’s purest, most magical form, like a child innocently wishing upon a star…. Dreams do come true under this New Moon influence.

If anything —- anything at all — was possible, what would you wish for?

Go big. Let your imagination play. Open up to blessings and miraculous turnarounds.

Remember to include what you’ve identified as missing from the bigger picture and what you ultimately want to feel when you’re wishing. That’s more important than the logistics now.

[And if you are one (like me) to freely wish for blessings and all things good for others, but have a tendency to forget to include yourself —-don’t forget yourself this time. Ok?]

The concept of wishing upon a star is particularly relevant now. To wish upon a star is symbolic, in that we aim high for something beyond us and in the unknown reaches of space. It’s like trusting in a Higher Power. And it’s common practice to not feel pressure to figure out the how. We simply wish and let it go. It’s not our job to make the wish come true. That part is out of our hands.

Be a believer now. Even if it’s just for a moment. This is, after all, a whole new world. And together, we get to create the experience we have in it.

Full Moon in Taurus | October 2018

{A Full Moon happens every month.  This is the part of the cycle when the Moon is in opposition with the Sun.  It's a great time for us to see what we need to release or let go of, reap what we've sown (literally or metaphorically) and tune into what is really being revealed to us since this is the brightest time of the month.  It's like clicking zoom in on your screen.  The images and fonts become larger and enhanced.  This is the opportunity we get every month to do that in our own lives.}

The Moon gets exalted in the sign of Taurus, for the Full Moon on October 24th, 2018.  Here I'll share my take on the energies of this Full Moon, including my intuitive insight for what's going on in the cosmos (astrological influence) and wisdom from the Major Arcana Tarot Card aligned with this zodiac sign + the card aligned with this part of the Universe, so you can leverage this collective energy and move thru this phase with greater confidence, prepared and aligned with the vibes!

Of ALL the Full Moons in a year, this is the one that’s got the magical elixir that really does seem to make things appear out of thin air. A Taurus Full Moon could be affectionately referred to as the Manifesting Maven Moon. It’s a double-dose of Feminine Power with Taurus ruled by Venus, Goddess of Love and the Moon is a Goddess herself.

And this time… this beautiful, bountiful Full Moon gets amplified with a cosmic jolt of electricity!

Uranus Rx sits pretty with the Moon in her favorite zone in the whole Universe.

Uranus is often considered the “Great Awakener”, and I associate this planet with The Fool in the Tarot deck. New cycles. Breakthroughs. Authenticity. Freedom.

SO, we could get some kind of reality check when it comes to what we have or don’t have in our life (or what we get around now) and why it’s even there to begin with.

Is it really aligned with who you truly are?

This includes the people in our lives…

Do they really see & appreciate your unique gifts, skills and talents?

These are questions that could arise within and grab our attention. It may be difficult to resist the impulse to deep-dive into the realms of Scorpio & its irresistible hunger for more. We may be so desperately wanting (or needing) to make progress that we miss the blessings this Full Moon has on tap.

But when we can relax into a sense of inner-peace and fulfillment, needing nothing outside of ourselves to fill the space within, miracles may appear.

Money On Your Mind, Mind On Your Money

While, conceptually, we may know that we are Whole & Divine beings, needing nothing in the world to complete us… that “happiness comes from within not without”, and all that jazz… it can be difficult really feel that under this Full Moon-light.

The disks in the Tarot relate to our 3-D world. Health. Finances. Home. Our stuff.

And with the 5 of Disks, we worry there’s not enough of something, or lots of things, perhaps. While our physical reality feels so out of balance, it could seem hopeless. A stable foundation from which we can build upon may appear elusive as more and more of what we want seems to slip away, or stay just beyond our reach.

It’s heavy. It’s too much not-enough-ness.

I find it interesting that both the Sun and the Moon, while opposing each other, are side-by-side with retrograde planets. The Sun, in Scorpio, with retrograde Venus nearby, and the Moon hooked up with retrograde Uranus. Meaning — this is an internal process that we’re working through now.

While it may feel like we are in an endless loop or time-warp, that’s an illusion we don’t have to buy into. Just because we can’t see the way through a struggle doesn’t mean there isn’t a way. The trick now is to get out the revolving thought processes that keep us sitting in an idle position.

>> If these words are resonating with you, take a moment and spread your arms out wide. (I mean it. Just do it!) Then… bring your arms forward in front of your body and wrap them around your chest. Let your hands rest on your shoulder blades or sides, take a deep breath and relax. Yes, hug yourself! It actually works wonders when it comes to relieving upper-body tension, too. <<

With this Full Moon in Taurus we get an opportunity to release some heavy burdens we’ve placed on ourselves, and review what we feel actually holds true and lasting value.

And the 5 of Disks, as worrisome as it seems, reveals that we have access to intuitive & creative solutions but we must first break the cycle of worry to fully realize them. While we may not be feeling supported by the physical plane, we have unwavering support form the Spiritual realms. We can be touched by Angels and renew our connection with our Spirit Guides when we quiet our minds and listen.

The Magic Potion Speaks Volumes

Open up and start talking. Or writing. With this Full Moon in Taurus, when we get real with ourselves and initiate a discussion to clear the air we can make actual progress.

Speak your truth and give a voice to your worries. With so much energy in Scorpio, a psychologist or energy healer could be especially helpful.

Listen closely to yourself while you spill your guts, too. It’s quite possible that you’ll notice some sneaky subconscious rhetoric in the language you use, and it may be all you need to experience a breakthrough and feel lighter moving forward.

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.]

Taurus vibes during this Full Moon phase may translate as signs & divine downloads of information through music and sound. Taurus is aligned with the throat chakra.

The signs could arrive through the people and things we value most, even material objects that hold sentimental value (like a note discovered tucked inside your Great-Grandmother’s armoire, for example).

The signs can be most obvious in earthy forms, and currency, like cash or coins.  I'd recommend really tuning into your body for signs, too, as we are re-calibrating our vibrations & could experience heightened senses with Uranus in Taurus.  Trust your first instincts.

While I know it may come with mixed emotions and heaviness, with this Full Moon in Taurus, when we realize we need nothing outside of ourselves to make us whole, we can breakthrough and make progress on the things that matter most to us.

Full Moon Blessings to you & yours,
