On December 28th Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn and stays there through January 16th.
Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel has been in the sign of Sagittarius for the last three weeks at its detriment. The bottom line is this means while Mercury is in Sagittarius, it does not do so well. As we had less control of our mouths and impulses. This was a time of travel, exploration, and learning. But even if we didn’t get to actually go anywhere, we probably had some amazing adventures in our minds. It was a good time for meeting new people, so hopefully there were fresh new ideas gained and perspectives changed. But now a shift occurs and it’s time to make new plans and set new goals, and manifest what we want next in our life. Our goals should reflect who we are and want to become.
With Mercury in Capricorn, we tend to get more calm and quiet, and are less over the top under this energy. It’s much easier to focus and concentrate on the tasks on hand that we need to take care of. This simply is a much better position for the messenger planet, so we can get more serious about taking care of business once again.
With the planet that rules over our thinking in more systematic Capricorn, we are more focused. Our attitude tends to be more sobering and practical. It’s much easier to concentrate on what needs to get done. Our conversations are more reality-based, usually about business or practical matters. We communicate more logically, as we can be more organized and orderly. Being focused on the here and now can help us plan ahead. Communications tend to be a matter of fact, no-nonsense, and precise. But it’s important to not allow our thoughts to become too cold or rigid, or we can come across as cut off and even harsh during this cycle, when really we are just more focused on business and goals.
There’s actually a whole lot of Capricorn energy going around right now, with it being “Capricorn Season”, and there are four other planets also in the sign represented by the Sea-Goat. This energy encourages us to take life and ourselves more seriously, so it doesn’t support fantasies do much or daydreams about the future. It wants us to just get out and actually do something.
We should be as productive as possible during these cycles! It’s a good time to make out plans and get organized by writing things down, especially your goals. And talk about what you want to do with the people involved. Staying productive makes us happy and puts our minds at ease.
The sign of Capricorn is not about being overly emotional, as it has work to do. It’s about the material things here on the planet and what we value in the physical world. Our thinking tends to be more logical and practical. It may not be the best time to share feelings or for being vulnerable, as we are more concerned and focused on getting what we want and seeing actual results materialize.
Under this energy, we tend to value honesty, integrity, and loyalty. So we should use this time to identify the best means to get a job done. Under this Capricorn influence, we can manage our resources quite well and make mostly practical purchases with our hard-earned cash or money.
It is important to take care of ourselves, and make sure we are taking some time to get away, relax and have some fun from time to time. Under all this Capricorn energy people tend to be more hard on themselves, so we can beuptight. It’s ok to rest and not be constantly doing something. Take a break!
Have a productive and successful time with Mercury in Capricorn.
The Last Full Moon of 2019 is slowly building up energy now, and this is right before Eclipse Season begins.
The December Full Moon illuminates in the sign of Gemini (represented by the twins of the Zodiac) on the 11th or 12th, depending on what part of the world you live in. So during this time, you may see things show up or happen in pairs.
The Universe gives the gift of clarity during a Full Moon, and highlights the duality in your life. This helps you see all sides of any given situation or the whole picture. You can feel conflicted about something in your life and want to take action, but it’s really best to wait until the day after the Full Moon occurs to make any important decisions or changes.
Love Is Serious Business! On Dec. 11th the Goddess of Love herself, Venus, meets up with Father Saturn in the sign of Capricorn. This is a time when we mean business about our love lives and financial responsibilities. A serious commitment or proposal could take place.
On Dec 12th, the Full Moon will reach its peak of fullness at 12:12 AM EST on the 12th day of the 12 month of the year! That’s pretty amazing and rare! This energy is magical and can help you create your future. What do you need to let go of so you can move forward? What needs to be released?
It’s time to Set those Intentions! This is a very potent Full Moon and the last one of the year, so you don’t want to miss out. If you can’t stay up until Midnight, make sure to Set Intentions. Practice doing energy work or rituals on Dec. 11th, when there’s a good view of the Moon.
Full Moons are the best time in a calendar month to work on letting go of what is no longer working or serving you. This particular energy helps you release what you don’t want to carry into the New Year.
During this Full Moon, you should work on letting go of any problems you have had, especially ones from last summer when the last Eclipse came together in July. There may be some unresolved issues that started back then that need your time and attention. This Full Moon energy might be an opportunity to fix something or gain some closure.
December is, of course, a very busy month, but we need to take this time (just for a day or two) and reflect on what we want to release from our life. So that we won’t bring any bad juju into 2020! One of the best ways to do this is to Set Intentions with this energy. If you’re not too sure how to go about it please follow this link Setting Intentionswith the Full Moon. Doing some sort of ritual under this energy can help give your spiritual wellness the boost it needs to make some magic happen.
This Full Moon brings new and fresh opportunities into our relationships as well. It may help you get some closure if needed. Some of you may feel this energy in a particularly strong and intense manner, so expect this energy to sort of take you over for a few days. The Zodiac Sun Signs Gemini, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Virgo may feel this Full Moon more strongly, as it pushes you to see the things you need to change in your life. But remember this Full Moon energy can be felt by all of us.
Last Full Moon of the Decade
This Full Moon is the last Full Moon of this Decade (2010-2019). The Cosmos is trying to tell us that it’s a strong time for Closure! Are you ready to complete this chapter of your life and start a new one? This is the energy you have been waiting for.
Synchronicity – 12th day of the 12th month of the year that equals 12 (2+0+1+9 =12)
This Full Moon occurs at the portal gate of 12. Numerologically speaking, 12 is not just a number that equals 3. It’s a special and very potent number. Throughout history witches, priests, Astrologers, and different spiritualities of all kinds knew the importance of the number 12.
12 are the Months of the Year
12 are the Zodiac Signs
12 are the principal Gods and Goddesses of Olympus
12 are the disciples of Jesus Christ
12 are the tribes of Israel according to the Old Testament
12 are the Labours (Challenges) of Hercules
12 are the Magical hours of the Day
12 are the Magical hours of the Night
Therefore, the Full Moon will be drenched in the Power of 12. 12 is the number of perfection, the number of Universal Wisdom and immense power. It is believed to be the number of the Angels and their power.
The Triple Conjunction that occurs right with the Full Moon is a very powerful energy.
Try to lighten up as much as you can during this Full Moon. Don’t allow your inner-critic to take over. This is not a good time to beat yourself up, it is a time to focus on your inner healing journey.
Lovely Venus is very strong during this Full Moon, and just like any good woman who knows what she wants, she can trigger you with the truth about the issues in your relationships. Venus is smack in between Saturn and Pluto, all forming a conjunction. This can make you feel powerful, assertive, but also uncertain. It’s a good time to set clear boundaries with your nearest and dearest, but it can be rather difficult to end a relationship, especially with it being the Holiday Season. Remember you have to do what’s best for you, so ignore those folks who tell you what to do.
Let go of your fears when it comes to asking for help, after all the Moon is in Gemini which is the sign of the twins. Perhaps this means we aren’t meant to work on our problems alone during this time, maybe it’s best to take the help.
This Full Moon may stir up some issues around our finances. During the Holidays we generally spend more money as it is, so we can use this energy to our advantage. Starting now work on your money issues, and make out a plan of action. Make phone calls to settle accounts or make payment arrangements. Whatever you do don’t ignore your financial responsibilities before the Full Moon comes together on the 11th/12th. As it can seriously backfire on you. And if at all possible, put some money away to save. And set some financial goals for next year. Write it all down!
However, this Full Moon can bring in financial blessings of some sort. If you are already doing well financially, do yourself a favor and find ways to give back. This energy is all about paying it forward, as this helps someone else benefit and can erase some of your Karmic Debt. There’s a strong need to find a balance between giving and receiving. Think about what you actually give back. Are you truly open to receiving? If not you can be unconsciously blocking blessings. That’s definitely something to be working on.
It is the Holiday Season, so many of you will be around your friends and family more so than usual, which often means drama! There’s going to be moments or triggers, where you are going to need to try really hard to keep your cool. It is a Full Moon, therefore, whatever problems arise will be out in the open to be dealt with. The Moon in Gemini, the sign of information and self-expression, so we can say too much once triggered. Don’t let things get too crazy. It’s best to release how your feeling slowly, so it doesn’t all come pouring out at once. Express yourself if need be, just be mindful about losing your cool. And sometimes a good argument can help fix things.
Time for Healing!
You should be using this Full Moon energy to practice self-care. Right after it occurs you can work on finding ways to relax and restore your energies. Just after the Full Moon peaks wounded healer Chiron, (the asteroid of healing) goes Direct from being Retrograde since last July! This Full Moon energy has the power to heal you. This is an ideal time to focus on your health, as it can help you find ways to boost your immune system. It’s important to do something that involves self-care, so if you need to go to the doctor (of any kind), this is a good time to make that appointment. This is amazing energy for you to work on health problems.
These healing energies are not just about working on your physical well-being, they also can help with your mental and emotional health. If you need someone to chat with about your problems, this is a good time to seek out a therapist of some kind. Or perhaps you just need a friend or family member, or perhaps a Spiritual Advisor of some kind, wink! And if you just can’t bring yourself to reach out for help, perhaps try to do something new or different, like a workout class, new diet regime, start meditation, or a Yoga class. Changing up the energies during this time can work out well.
The Full Moon in Gemini can help us to be more loving, kind, and compassionate. Our creative nature can come out strong, but you may have to get into situations where you can use it. And since we are feeling more open and can be more sensitive about other people’s feelings, we can use this energy to share love and kindness, that’s a gift. This is something we should be doing all year long, but the Holidays are always a good reminder.
On Dec. 13th the Full moon energy will still be running quite strong! And Mars makes a sweet Trine connection to spiritual Neptune. This is some serious Psychic Energy! It’s important to listen to your gut instincts and those psychic hunches, or A-Ha moments. Pay attention to your dreams as well, as your intuition will be vibrating very high. Highly sexual otherworldly experiences.
The Full Moon in Gemini can show you the duality of your life. Just like the two sides of Gemini, it can bring blessings but it might also bring in some opposition. Once the Full Moon energy breaks apart through the weekend you can reflect on just how happy or upset you’ve been with your life in 2019. This energy gives you an opportunity to let go and release anything you’ve been hanging onto emotionally or physically that is no longer working for you. Then you can start the New Year with a new beginning and hopefully a fresh start.
Mercury Goes Direct and out of Retrograde on Wednesday the 20th! Woo-hoo!
It’s been a rough Mercury in Retrograde cycle for many of you, with it being in emotionally deep Scorpio during Scorpio Season as well, (when the Sun is in Scorpio.)
But let’s just focus on the fact that it’s over, even though we do have a two week after-shadow period to get through! Things now can slowly start to go back to normal.
Take a deep breath as it’s almost time to get moving again! Thank goodness, as this one was problematic and annoying for most of us.
Mercury has spent an unusually long time in the sign of deeper feeling Scorpio, and in Retrograde since Halloween. Even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications and misunderstandings. Our inner-detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things we were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense and slowly start to come together.
As this shift occurs be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour in that’s difficult to understand. Take notes and make out lists, it will be helpful once this energy shifts. This info coming in can start to stress us out and mentally we can get overwhelmed.
It’s not wise to make any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking is not clear. This issue for the next week or so is our problems can be magnified and difficult to fix. Our problems might be right in our face, so we should take a step back and take a breath so we can think about what our next move should be after we are out of the after shadow period in two weeks.
Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks. But it can be a rocky start with Mercury moving so slowly, even though it’s headed in the right direction again. During this adjustment period, there may actually be more disruptions and misunderstandings. However, slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives, just eventually without all the technical glitches and snafus.
As the mental energies start to calm back down whatever has been wonky or not working will soon get better, or may just be something you need to let go of.

November 2019 – Astro Highlights
November 1st – Venus Enters Sagittarius
Since lovely and lusty Venus is now finished with its trip through the murky waters of Scorpio, it moves back into the light in fiery Sagittarius. So basically we can feel more hopeful and optimistic in things like love, relationships, and with situations involving our money! If you have been hiding your heart or your feelings from those you love, it’s time to come back out to the land of the living and find what makes you happy and brings you joy! It’s time to use this new hopeful energy to overcome your fears and remember that anything is possible.
November 5th, 2019 – Mars Square Pluto
Mars makes a tense square to intense Pluto, which can bring power struggles and a stronger desire to win someone or something over. With Mars involved you may want to assert yourself and get what you want and do it right away! But no matter how much you may want something, there may be circumstances or people that will make it more difficult if not impossible. When Mars Squares Pluto we are challenged or tested to see what we are capable of, and why not, this helps us learn how to be good at losing. Sometimes we fear losing, but this influence tends to push us out of our comfort zone, so we can reach our full potential. If you never learn how to lose in your life you will never be able to win.
November 11th, 2019 – Mercury Conjunct Sun
When Mercury meets up with the Sun it begins a new Mercury cycle, this is a great time to finish up any projects that take mental concentration. Do you have perhaps a book or website you need to finish? Maybe you want to learn a new skill or sell something online? Mercury will be hanging out with the Sun who will help you with what your next move should be to obtain your goals. This won’t happen again for years, so if an opportunity comes up definitely see what it’s all about.
November 12th, 2019 – Full Moon In Taurus
The Full Moons in Taurus are some of the best feeling most lucky Full Moons of the year. This particular Full Moon is also making some interesting meeting with Neptune in Pisces, and some sweet Trines to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and is opposing Mercury in Scorpio. Yes, that is a lot of energy to go around. Because there is so much Earth energy involved, the Full Moon in Taurus will help us deal with obvious problems that we have been choosing to ignore or refuse to deal with. This is a time of common sense and sound judgment, so with the Full Moon in Taurus you will see what you get and you probably will get what you see. It’s important to watch for being overly stubborn, although some self-interest is healthy and necessary, as Taurus energy helps us to put some much-needed attention on ourselves once again.
November 14th, 2019 – Venus Square Neptune
When Venus makes a square to Neptune our feelings of insecurity can lead to high expectations that just are not going to happen, perhaps in the way we had hoped for. Because this Square is in the most hopeful but foggier signs of the Zodiac, you should be extra careful about wishful thinking. How we see ourselves can become an issue in our relationships, as we have a tendency to over-idealize romance and relationships, and plain out ignore warning signs that most others can see so well. This is a time to pay attention and reassess your hopes and dreams, but it’s just as important not to set the bar so high, and it’s equally as important to understand what’s realistically possible and what’s not! We deserve the Sun and Moon, but sometimes we push things and don’t allow ourselves enough time to get there. Don’t let this energy discourage you, be patient. We are more tender and affectionate at this time which can lead to new relationships, but stay woke folks, as the Neptunian influence can cause confusion. It’s just wise to wait until after this transit is over before making any commitments, so don’t be so trusting and fall victim to the wrong person.
“Warning for anyone who is susceptible to the influence of alcohol or drugs, this is a time when addiction can go too far and often there are overdoses. Be mindful and if you suffer from depression make sure and talk to someone if you are feeling bad, there is always someone who will listen.”
November 19th, 2019 – Mars Enters Scorpio
With Mars in Scorpio, it can be easier to assert yourself in the actions you take, so you can feel more driven and focused to get things done. Mars is at home in Scorpio, being the co-ruler of this sign, so it likes it here and will assist you on getting things done. We are more strong-willed, passionate, single-minded, and resilient under this energy. Once you are on a mission it can be very difficult for anyone to stop you during this time. There is a stronger desire to experience our emotional depths, so we can feel the urge to penetrate the surface of life in order to explore deeper levels of powerful existence. This is also a time where we can get caught up in what others tend to repress, so all that has been hidden, kept secret, or ignored can come out to experience and understand better.
November 20th, 2019 – Mercury Goes Direct
Hooray, Mercury stations direct and moves out of its Retrograde phase! Mercury has spent an unusually long time in Scorpio and has been in Retrograde since Halloween, and even though it will stay in Scorpio for a few more weeks, things can slowly start to go back to normal when it comes to communications, especially. Our inner detective has been strong, but with Mercury direct now, some of the things you were researching or obsessing over will finally make sense or slowly start to come together. As things start to make sense, be mindful that a flood of information can start to pour back in to make sense of and this can be mentally overwhelming and stressful. Expect some “a-ha” moments over the next few weeks, but also things may be rocky at first. Mercury doesn’t just start and stop on a dim, it moves as we do and now that is headed in the right direction once again, it also has to pick up the pace and get back to its normal speed. This “Shadow period” as it is commonly called means there may be more disruptions and misunderstandings. Slowly but surely Mercury will get back to normal and so will our lives again, as technical glitches and snafus will start to calm back down, and the things that weren’t making sense will again very soon.
November 22, 2019 – Sun Enters Sagittarius
The Sun enters into the sign of Sagittarius today, so Happy Birthday to all of you Sagittarians! Thanks to the Sagittarius season, we all become a bit wiser, hopeful and adventurous this time of the year.
This transit lasts through December 21st. With the Sun in Sagittarius, our focus shifts from the need to make intimate connections with others to a stronger need to get out and have an adventure. While the Sun moves through this fiery mutable sign, there is an urge to learn, grown, and expand our horizons, so we want to understand the world around us. This is a time when we seek out truth but also the higher meaning of any situation we focus on. Our faith and hope are restored and we can feel optimistic about life once again.
Since we are feeling more brave and courageous, we want to head down new and different paths, as our minds are wide open. Our confidence levels can soar now, so we can be overly optimistic as we focus more on the “bigger picture” and our dreams, instead of just the little details of our mundane everyday life. However, we tend to overdo things and can get carried away! This is the perfect time to work on our faith, hope, and future visions. This is your time to dream big. Don’t worry about the “how”, just make sure your goals are big enough and motivating, as you want to find your true meaning and purpose.
November 24th, 2019 – Venus Conjunct Jupiter
This amazing energy is what all the Astrologers have been talking about, so if you are an Astrology enthusiast of some kind, you might be quite excited to learn about this energy! However, on the same day Mars starts is opposition with rebellious Uranus, and the Moon also briefly joins Mars in the middle of this heated up energy. This can produce a lot of intensity and a strong desire for change. You may not want change because you want to move away from something, or because your current situation is unstable, but many of you are also feeling anxious and excited all at the same time about new opportunities coming in.
This certainly can be one heck of a freaking interesting day for many different reasons. It seems like those who have strong Sagittarius energy in their chart will experience some sort of expansion, uplifting, or happy go lucky kind of energy with these influences. While the fixed signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) may feel like they are caught up in a whirlwind of craziness. But no matter what you sign maybe we all will feel this energy in one way or another. Be careful of accidents and make sure to pay attention to your surroundings.
November 26th, 2019 – Venus Enters Capricorn
Venus the planet of love, money, and lust changes signs into realistic, accomplished Capricorn. Venus moves fast around the Zodiac wheel in exact order, so we must take advantage of the energies she puts off while in the sign of Capricorn for about the next month. You can feel more reserved when it comes to displaying your emotional side which can help if you are feeling overwhelmed when dealing with a partner or significant others. Be careful as you can bury all those emotions way too deep, and they can come out in a more impulsive, negative or even angry way!
With this placement, our relationships tend to be more on the practical side. That’s because we tend to see people for who they are, and are not afraid to lay the cards out on the table, as we simply take things more seriously. Since we appreciate maturity in our relationships, we take our time when it comes to love and tend to slowly warm up to others, then we can make long-term commitments. There will be more focus on business relationships as well during this time. Hopefully, any emotional issues that come up can be addressed before this cycle begins, so start to get prepared for it now.
November 26th, 2019 – New Moon In Sagittarius
This New Moon is a fabulous one, full of great feeling vibes with another interesting conjunction between lovely Venus and lucky Jupiter, so in fact, this New Moon can reactivate this amazing energy, and then for the cherry on top of this Cosmic Sundae is sweet Mercury and mystical Neptune in water signs hooking up! This is just one of those New Moons that are rare, the best one of year in fact! So it’s a great time for Setting Intentions, (telling the Universe what you want to see happen next in your life) and for visualization work. Get up today and start making a Vision Board, (when you take pictures and literally post them up on a board or a corkboard to see every day, helping create the energy of what you want to see happen in your life.)
Now for the more shadow side to this New Moon, is that aggressive Mars is opposing rebellious Uranus at the same time. This can bring chaotic energy! There also can be more irritation, hostility, or unexpected changes. Anger can boil over and turn into rash actions and silly temper tantrums. We can feel more impulsive and have a total disregard for following the rules, it can feel more important to break the rules to be free from our responsibilities and obligations.
November 27: Neptune goes Direct
Hopefully you’ve used the last few months to revisit your hopes, dreams, and goals and are now ready to turn your dreams into reality. However, since Neptune rules fantasies and spiritual quests make sure to take your time before making important decisions. You’ll need to pay attention and use your common sense to be successful now. Please read my Daily Astro Readings Blogs to learn more.

Mercury goes Retrograde on Halloween October 31st, 2019 and runs through November 17, 2019.
Mercury is currently inthe sign of Scorpio, this is a deep, potent, psychological energy. Therefore we go into a more private introverted place that has us exploring the deeper parts of our minds and psyche, as we learn truths that come from the depths of our souls. What is considered to be taboo or secret comes out in the open. The truth comes out to be told! The sign of Scorpio, after all, is the sign of regeneration, as it teaches all of us that sometimes we must fall to pieces and let something end or die off to start over again. If we take this cycle to plan and strategize we can make things happen once it’s over! As we go back to revisit and revise our plans we can go much deeper than usual while in this cycle and uncover ways to improve our lives and ourselves.
Sometimes the Universe gives us a break even though it doesn’t always feel that way. One thing the Cosmos always does is create balance. So the energies get slowed down a bit so we can have the opportunity to catch up. Mercury in Retrograde (Rx for short) is that time out, it’s an opportunity to get caught up with life, and a time to unplug and take a long deep breath. It’s also a great time to take some time off from our responsibilities if at all possible, maybe taking a little vacay and focus on reworking anything that needs to be done, or finishing projects that were never done to completion, while Mercury rules over our minds and thoughts. When this fast-moving planet goes into Retrograde we start to perceive things in a very different and unique way.
Mercury in Rx like all Retrograde planets is happening for a reason, this isn’t some new Astrological fad! Planets have always gone into Retrograde cycles and will continue to. So every once in a while we get a chance to pause or stop and get some rest. This is the time to review your life and the paths you’re on. What this Mercury in Rx cycle does is help us to take a breathe, be still, relax, and review. The main thing to understand as this cycle takes hold that it’s a time to review your life and redo anything that needs to be done. It is time to research, re-think, re-visit, re-connect, and to get re-organized.
Mercury rules over our minds and how we process information, so this is a time to observe our lives from an outside perspective, which is truly a gift. From this space, we have the rare opportunity to see the contrast in our lives and what is working and what isn’t. The only problem is we live in a time of INFORMATION and after all, Mercury is the planet that delivers info, but during its Retrograde cycles, it wants us to simply UNPLUG and take a step back from our normal everyday routines and lives, and to not be online or on our phones, CAN YOU IMAGINE THAT! But if we were to stop using all of our electronic devices and take work off, and simply review our lives it would be a much better experience. The reality is only a few of you reading this are actually able to do this. So the challenge is in learning how to handle Mercury in Retrograde and still do our lives. Those of you who already pay attention to Mercury in Rx’s cycles understand just how annoying all the misunderstandings, electronic glitches, and snafus can be! So the bottom line is we should learn how to put our phones down from time to time and just simply do life, as this is a time of deep inner reflection.
What Not To Do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Don’t start brand new projects
Do not get into arguments, avoid critical folks and tense people or situations.
Do Not Sign Contracts or New Agreements
Do Not take misunderstandings personal. Our Minds and Communication is foggy and cloudy.
What To do during
Mercury in Retrograde:
Redo, Rework, Review, Research, so basically go over things again and wrap up old business and projects.
Double Check the Facts and any info gathered.
Revisit what you need to, like your work.
Reconnect with the folks that matter if you’ve had issues or not.
Backup Computers and any data you want to keep saved, usually start this process two weeks before the actual Retro Cycle.
Reorganize your daily life routines.
Reflect and practice spiritual work.
Release what’s been holding you back or blocking you, let go of what is no longer working, especially in your intimate relationships.
There can be positive things that come from a Mercury in Retrograde cycle that perhaps didn’t cross your mind. Like throwing out old stuff you no longer need or use, and organizing your life. Stay focused on any past opportunities and reconsider them now, see if they’re still an option. Try not to allow any computer glitches or electronic snafus you might be experiencing to upset you too much.
Since it’s the Holiday Season, it’s important to keep a paper trail of whatever you purchase. Mercury is known as the “trickster” of the Zodiac, so it likes to play tricks that make us change our minds suddenly and this causes confusion.
So our focus should be on re-organizing and reflecting. We see the world a little differently during this time, and through these filters, we can have some very important inner revelations. It may not be as easy to communicate under this influence, so remember trying to rationalize everything at this time will just probably cause you more confusion. Logic is out and intuition is in! Mercury Rx periods can be times of heightened inner-awareness, so doing things like meditation, keeping a journal, reworking old plans, reviewing, or reconnecting to your past can be quite helpful. Mercury Rx is also a powerful time to study, particularly for returning to old studies and re-learning or refreshing knowledge around a subject that’s already been started.
This Mercury in Retrograde cycle can also help you think back to a part of your recent past, and reconnect you to an old dream or goal to follow through on once this cycle is over, but write it all down for now and plan ahead. Someone from your past might get a hold of you for a second chance or opportunity, but that doesn’t mean it’s meant to be, usually, it doesn’t work out for the long-run. But it’s nice to reconnect and perhaps sort out any unresolved issues you might have.
Because we are perceiving things differently, and Mercury and the Sun are both in the sign of Scorpio this time around, the truth tends to come out! Certain things that have been suppressed, hidden, secret or unknown suddenly are shown to us during this time. You just might notice or find some kind of detail you overlooked or didn’t catch before, which can be very helpful. This cycle can bring clarity and help you move past any restrictions or blocks standing in your way. Mercury begins retracing its steps in direct motion starting November 17, 2019.
The New Moon takes place in the Sign of Scorpio ironically enough this October, but these energies will be felt strongly starting Saturday the 26th through the 28th. The actual New Moon comes together on Sunday the 27th in the evening here in the US.
This New Moon energy is meeting up with some other planets making it very different and challenging energy to deal with. There can be situations that provoke anger, and lies or deceptions. Lovers and relationships, in general, can have issues with high ideals that have been set and explosive attitudes around those expectations. The Uranus opposition to the New Moon is not compatible with its energy and therefore, it contradicts the awesome New Moon energy! So it may not feel like an ordinary New Moon, which is usually much more peaceful hopeful for most.
Since the Sun and Moon are both in the sign of Scorpio during this New Moon, our desires run deep and our will is stronger than usual. Our lives are under a microscope that involve our very existence, so we can become obsessed with thoughts about life and death. Scorpio is the sign of Regeneration after all. Any issues that suddenly come up now can be viewed as a matter of “life or death”, which is extreme, but so are our thoughts and emotions, which can be fiercely intense at this time.
With the New Moon in Scorpio stirring up such intense emotions, all that has been hidden, buried, repressed, taboo, or kept secret is ready to be discovered. This energy is supercharged with intense psychological energy, so it can affect our psyche in a powerful way that can help transform us! But this is not usually a fun process. Being aware is, however, half the battle and can help you understand what you need to move forward. Don’t be in denial or lie to yourself, or you won’t get the lessons involved from this New Moon energy and can struggle and suffer.
When the New Moon is in the sign of Scorpio our emotional depth mixes with our equally strong willpower to survive and succeed, at whatever we put our time and energy into. This makes for a stronger source of psychological energy to draw from. The only issue is we can catch others off guard by expressing ourselves rather suddenly and unexpectedly in a strong manner, this can cause tensions with other people, and then they may not trust us enough to deal with the real problems at hand.
This New Moon has such a different vibe with the planet Uranus almost precisely in an opposition to it! So it can feel like a Full Moon, as anxiety levels run high. The emotional Scorpio intensity is strong and needs some sort of transformation, this can make us feel excited and restless as we have a strong need for independence that can fill us full of nervous energy. Something needs to shift or change in our world in order to calm back down, but we may not even know where to start.
All of the Signs of the Zodiac will be affected by this energy, but it can be especially strong for the “Fixed Signs” of the Zodiac which are as follows; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius, especially those born in the First decan of each sign, so the first week of each of these signs. And the “Cardinal Signs” as well so, Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn especially those born in the Second decan of their sign, which is the second week of each of those signs.
The New Moon’s Effects
During this New Moon there can be unexpected events that challenge what we have come to trust and understand to be true. Tensions can grow high and there can be rash and strong reactions from others. This influence tends to bring up issues around our emotional security and love life. Some folks will notice the feelings they’ve been stuffing deep down suddenly coming out in a very exaggerated manner. We can suddenly feel a strong urge to express our emotions out loud about our relationships, and this energy can trigger us and we may start to obsess about why we are with our partners or lovers in the first place. This creates a fog over our situations and makes it that much more confusing, especially with Mercury just about to go Retrograde also in the sign of the Scorpio. There might be a case of mistaken expectations of our partners, and what we thought they could or would do. We must sit back and observe for now, and perhaps take some sort of mental notes, but it would be silly to take any actions at this time, until the New Moon energy has passed and we are more clear and less judgmental about what we are doing and seeing!
This energy is extremely sexual, and therefore many of you will feel a strong desire to express your sexuality, but that may become frustrating or a waste of time and energy in some way. Just remember to keep your cool as this energy can cause tension, anger, and crisis, which can lead to separations and even breakups in any kind of relationship.
It’s important to have patience and remain polite to keep the peace. Try to think before reacting, and work on being more compromising. This is the best way to avoid these tense energy from kicking up! Perhaps the battles are not over for now, but do you really want to wage War under these energies? Unless you feel done with the relationship, then go for it, otherwise take a step back and a deep breathe and learn more so about how to compromise. That is what it takes to maintain a healthy relationship, and perhaps that is what this energy is trying to teach us, to be patient with our partners.
Setting Intentions with the New Moon
It may almost seem kind of scary to “Set Intentions” with this particular New Moon, due to the unstable energy it’s bringing to us, being hooked into a strong opposition with the planet Uranus. However, Scorpio energy is some strong magic folks, it is an alchemist at its very core. This is the time to go deep and ask for some kind of blessing or miracle. Being saturated by so much Scorpio energy we have the power to transform any situation in our lives. Uranus is the spark that helps creates miracles, it’s lightning speed and energy can change anything fast! Astrologers enjoy precision and this New Moon will hit us right where it counts, so it can be very powerful energy to work with! Take advantage of this powerful energy and wield it in the direction towards what you most strongly desire. This won’t be a waste of time I assure you as Scorpio is the sign that started and defined what Desire truly is in the first place.

The Sun shifts into the mysterious sign of Scorpio on October 23rd and “Scorpio Season” officially begins. Every aspect of life can feel super-charged with intensity between now and November 22nd.
Happy Birthday to all my Sun Sign Scorpions out there! But this blog is for all the Signs, so read on to learn more.
The sign of Scorpio is notoriously known for being the darkest (symbolically speaking), mysterious, and deeply psychological sign in the Zodiac, as it explores the soul when it’s under the light of the Sun and truths, deceptions, and secrets are exposed.
Scorpio’s lessons are about depth, intimacy, and transformation. Anything fake or false will be shown for what it truly is while the Sun is in this sign, so if something or someone is superficial it simply won’t work for you at this time, only the real deal will do! This sign and its energy is the detective of the Zodiac, therefore we are more interested in getting to the bottom of our problems, as we work at uncovering what’s been hidden, suppressed, or unseen. We also can be quite obsessed with other people’s problems and can feel a strong urge to help those around us. Under this energy, you might actually enjoy all that is odd, taboo, or different in the world. Anything just plain or average may not be enough for us during this time.
During Libra Season, while the Sun was in Libra over the last month we worked at being fair and equal, as our attention was on our relationships and keeping things more balanced. But under this
Scorpio energy we accept the fact that life isn’t fair, and we are learning to understand that pain and suffering are actually part of the process of life. In order to truly evolve, we must transform ourselves and perhaps go some sort of major breakdown to end something and begin anew.
Scorpio energy is also quite sexy, mysterious, and provocative! So there’s going to be some interesting situations that spark up in our relationships while the Sun is in Scorpio. And the single folks out there may search for a strong love, committed, and long-term during this time. This Scorpio influence keeps us perhaps a little more reserved about how passionate we truly feel, but we can still be strong-willed and intense. This is a time of powerful emotions and some of you might feel rather emotional during its run. This energy can transform certain things in your life, of course, depending on what part of your personal Astrology Birth Chart the Sun is cruising through is what part of your life this energy will be the most evident.
The sign of Scorpio is often represented by the Scorpion, but also, the Mythical Bird, the “Phoenix” can represent this brave sign. The legend of the Phoenix is about how once were ready to go, die off, or end our chapter in this life, this magical bird flies up in the air and catches fire and turns to dust! But from that state, it comes back and resurrects itself back to being whole. Once it has risen back to life, it is ready to start over again. This legend teaches us that sometimes we have to fall apart, and let something end, or let a part ourselves die off to resurrect and come back to life, so we can tap into some kind of new energy and start something anew.
The shadow side of Scorpio energy is we can become more easily jealous, paranoid, obsessive, and manipulative. This energy can cause some of you to be more obsessive about an issue or problem, as we can be compulsive and won’t let things just happen naturally. This, of course, will get you nowhere and it might be more difficult to stop once you have started focusing on something.
Despite how scary or creepy this all might sound, Scorpio is part of the Zodiac Wheel for a reason and we all have a little or a lot of this sign in each of our Astrology Birth Charts. Scorpio energy also gives us incredible drive and strength, which in turn can help us get through difficult times. This sign knows how to survive the worst of situations and has extra reserved up energy to get through. Scorpio energy kicks ass and takes names once it is forced to die off like the Phoenix, so it can figure out whatever it needs to know to come back. So draw upon the Scorpio energy during this time to help you take on difficult tasks or situations in your life.
Curious Mercury and loving Venus are also in the sign of Scorpio at this time, which also runs through Scorpio Season. This means our souls, hearts, and minds are all being ruled by the Scorpio energy, therefore, some of you will be breaking your lives down to rise up once again, and perhaps resurrect yourselves in some way just like the Phoenix!
This can be amazing energy to work with if you want to finish something in your life, after all, Scorpio Season is a time of endings, hence why we choose to celebrate Halloween during this time, as Halloween originated from the Holiday the “Day of the Dead,” which is a time when we should be honoring those who have passed or crossed over, it’s a time to be in touch with our ancestors who lived here before us. With so much Scorpio energy this season going around the veils between this world and other realms are very thin, and we will have an extra spooky Halloween Season as our minds are very in sync with the afterlife and paranormal. Therefore many of you will be able to connect to loved ones who have crossed more easily than usual. And those spirits and energies that are still roaming on this earthly plane will be restless, so often that means more communicative as well. But remember they have to communicate differently with us.
This is also a time when the earth sheds itself, as the Fall into Winter months is the time the planet dies off so to speak, but we know next Spring it will resurrect itself and start all over again. Ask yourself what part of your life do you need to end? What are you shedding away? What part of your life needs to die off and perhaps be started all over? Are you being forced to look at certain parts of your life now, so you will end something? This can be any part of your life, an old worn-out behavior or attitude, a situation, or it could be with a person. Or perhaps it is something spiritual within yourself.
Happy Birthday, Libra! And Happy Libra Season to all. The Sun shifts from practical, detailed Virgo into the sign of harmony and balance, Libra, through October 23.
This is our “Autumnal Equinox”, and we will experience equal hours of daylight as darkness. Today is something to talk about because not only is the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, as these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality. It’s a good time to work on balancing your personal life and relationships.
We can feel mentally sharper and be made more aware of issues of injustice by being able to spot unfair treatment. We may have to stand up for ourselves or someone else during this time. This seems to come out more so with family and close friends. It can be easier at this time to see all sides to most situations, so we can have a hard time choosing sides while trying to figure things out. Just remember you can’t make everyone happy, as decision making can prove to be difficult. This is a good time to meet others halfway, compromise, and work on negotiations. Take into consideration other folks needs, agendas, and desires as well as your own. We might start playing the role of peacemaker, so we can be very diplomatic when it comes to dealing with problems or in business dealings. We desire peace and harmony and create that energy both aware and unconsciously.
Be careful to not seek out the approval of others too much during this cycle, as it can be difficult to know who’s telling the truth sometimes. Follow your gut instincts during Libra Season as our inner awareness is very strong. We have an extra boost of intuition now with mental Mercury also in the sign of Libra, so it’s just natural to study other folks and their behaviors and body language. Follow that little voice inside your head, it is strong under all this Libra energy, we all can be quite Psychic and will be able to see through other people quite quickly.
This transit can affect those with Leo or Libra Suns Signs or Rising signs quite strongly, but this energy affects all of us! Sun in Libra folks should feel a great big jolt of confidence and playfulness over these next four weeks, and Leo may be made more aware of how to balance themselves both emotionally and physically.
While under the Sun in Libra we will strive to keep some sort of balance and greater equilibrium for the next month. So we are working on lessons involving such things as style, charm, tact, tolerance, and our social skills. The more shadow side of Libra energy shows us how we are more indecisive, passive-aggressive, fake or superficial, and a bit narcissistic. Learn from this time, as there is going to be a whole lot of Libra energy surrounding us for the next month or so.
The Seasons are changing once again and on September 23, 2019, the Sun moves into the sign of Libra, which marks the official beginning of the Autumn Equinox! This will be the turning point of the year, as we shift into a totally different energy, but there’s nothing to fear because it’s been rough folks. This shift into the Fall Season can actually help ease tensions and bring some calm into the mix.
Not only has the Sun moved into charming Libra, but so has the “great messenger” Mercury and the Goddess of Love, Venus. So our core-self, minds, and hearts are in sync, besides the constant need for balance these aspects turn our focus towards our relationships, so these influences bring in the energy of balance, cooperation, and equality.
Libra’s energy is all about finding balance, so we can learn how to live in harmony with others, especially in our relationships (of all kinds). Our partnerships and relationships will become very important during this time. This sign teaches us to look at life from a more compassionate but also accommodating perspective. It’s a good time to get out there and date if you are looking for love, as this is a time when the energies tend to create peace and harmony in the world. Generally speaking, this sign helps us to be the best versions of ourselves that we can be.
The Equinox gives us an opportunity to experience something new or different. This big shift in energy will be more focused on allowing our goals to meet their full potential. This has already been a difficult time for Mother Nature, she is still in a huge cleansing process that was initiated by the Eclipses over the summer. You are invited to work on balancing yourself and finding some sort of stability as well. However, as we work on getting our equilibrium back we will have to take on some lessons at first, so we have to accept this is the process we must follow, as the Universe puts us through tests and challenges. However, these lessons often help us to grow, mature, and evolve.
The energies have already been slowing down with Saturn going Direct and out of Retrograde just a week ago, so as we go through this major shift we can start to finally arrive, this means we will get those moments of peace where we can catch our breath and just take a long break! It’s time to move forward with your future goals and plans, you might just find others who will want to help or support you while reaching your goals.
The human race has been going through a lot and we can start to finally recover if only for a short time. The things or projects we put off and didn’t take care of will start to show up to be dealt with and finished over the Last Quarter of 2019. As new paths are opened and revealed, our reality will change and the Equinox’s energies can really help smooth things over as we adjust to these changes.
It is very important to embrace all that is happening now, and not hide from challenges, so trust yourself and your inner voice to guide you. Listen to your higher-self and your intuition. Many of you are already feeling drained and just off, but once we get on the paths we are supposed to be on things will start to calm down. Our creativity will be super strong and potent during this energy shift, so take some time to reflect on what you have been doing this year, so you can create what you want to happen next during the last part of 2019. Don’t look back, the past is behind you, focus on creating a bright and amazing future instead!
Just a reminder for next month, on Halloween Mercury turns Retrograde for three weeks, this is a time to turn inward and do some sort of inner healing work, especially on how we hold and use our own personal power in the world. This will be a time when our thoughts can easily turn towards past lovers and ex-spouses or even just attractions we once had. Our feelings may be surprising, but for some folks especially woman you can become obsessed and get stuck on a past ex-lover, boyfriend, or attraction! So this can be an emotionally draining and demanding time. However, it is a great time to work at releasing those unhealthy attachments you have to the past and reclaim your power, and finally let those folks go on a deeper soul level!
This energy rolling in now will start to calm things down a bit, and should help us with the more difficult issues we’ve been having, so we basically are going into a time of recovery! Just give the Cosmos a little time to come together and allow these new energies to flow just where they need to. Try to stay as positive as you can and focus on what is to come, because it truly makes a difference even if things don’t appear that way at first. Patience is key to your success now.
The Full Moon energy is building now and will occur Friday the 13th late at night, or very early Saturday morning depending on what part of the world you live in. So starting anytime today you can work on “Setting Intentions” with the Full Moon energy. This is a time to work on releasing from your heart what you no longer need, or what isn’t working for you! Work with the Cosmos and write a letter or meditate, and tell the Universe what it is you want to see happen in your life next. Let go of what needs to be done, be it a situation, person, or change in behavior. What do you want to release? What would you like to create or manifest? It can be about anything. You might be pleasantly surprised with the outcome, as this Full Moon illuminates the truth around the same time as some other cosmic connections are opening up doors for us to release old Karmic Debt. This is your chance to wipe the slate clean! And you get to rewrite the next chapters of your life! Think about your hopes, dreams, and desires, and feel it as if you already have obtained your goals.
Read on below to learn how!
This is an opportune time to ask the Universe to release whatever you need to let go, or do away with, and what doesn’t serve you. The intentions that are set during a “Full Moon” will set you on the right path towards your hopes, wishes, and desires. This is the best time to do some energy work and releasing old pains and experiences that might have held you down or blocked you up! It’s time to get the old stuff out so the new energies can come in!
During the Full Moon, we often experience an energy shift, so we must release the old energies to open up doorways so to speak, so the new energies can be allowed into our lives.
What to Release under a Full Moon:
Negative patterns or bad habits
Unhealthy situations or relationships
What to work on during the Full Moon:
Letting go of both the people and situations that aren’t working anymore. And sometimes it is just an attitude or thought
Clearing space for new energies to come in
Being GRATEFUL for what you already have and what will be
Have a conversation with the Universe, (your higher power, Spirit Guides, Angels, God, etc) whatever you call it! Ask for the “Full Moon” to help illuminate the path that leads you towards your deepest desires. Simply ask to be put on a path towards your dreams and goals.
Patience is important! Remember to allow the time needed for the Moon to light the way, as it doesn’t always happen right away. But sometimes magic happens and it does. The “Full Moon” illuminates the truth and is symbolic for seeing what’s been hidden, secret, tucked away, or suppressed. So ask for the truth to be revealed during this time. You just might be pleasantly surprised by what you learn.
Setting Intentions Guide
What if you don’t know how to “Set Intentions” under the Full Moon. Follow the steps below to learn how:
Step One: Clear your Sacred Space Clear the energy of the area or room you’re using to do your Full Moon work. You are simply calling in some positive energy to work with. Burn some Sage or Incense and clear the energies. Think about where you’re going to perform your energy work. Because we create an energy vortex wherever we sit, sleep or do spiritual work! This is why you feel so comfy in your favorite chair because it feels safe and secure. But also because you have created an energy vortex in that spot or space.
Step Two: Set the Atmosphere Set the mood or your Full Moon Ritual. Burn some special incense, light some candles (colors do have different meanings,) and play some mood or ambient music that helps you feel spiritually connected. This can be very different for everyone. Just makes sure to use whatever tools or colors that make you feel calm, happy, and peaceful.
Step Three: Let It Out You’re going to need a notebook, paper, or a journal and something to write with. Writing pen to paper can be magical! It helps sync up the mind and body! Then you write what you’d like the Universe to bring in and remove both. Simply write your deepest truths, wishes, and questions down. Think about what energy you’re trying to let go of and release. Write the letter like as if you were talking to an old friend. Think about what energy you’re trying to push out of your life, and what energy you’re trying to bring in, and be detailed but don’t go overboard.
And just know sometimes things take time. Often we just miss the signs and messages the Universe is sending because they are so subtle. They are not always some sort of earth-shattering sign that shows up like a lightning bolt! More often it’s simply a bird landing in your backyard, or hearing a song on the radio that seems to have special meaning just for you. If you pay attention and see everything as a sign, you will start to quickly pick up on what the Universe is trying to tell you!
As you’re doing this work and setting your intentions, here are some helpful questions you can think about, for example; Ask for what you are choosing to come into your life? What changes would you like to see happen? What are you or should you be letting go of? How do you feel about what is happening in your life now? What do you want to release? Think about your long-term goals and your future, and what energy you’d like to create over the coming months.
Step Four: Visualize what you’re Creating Now you’re going to visualize what you have written. First get comfortable again, preferably in the same place and read what you wrote very closely. Then close your eyes and take some long deep breaths, in your nose and out your mouth. See the energy of your heart center, (that’s in the middle of your chest, not your actual pumping heart) but your spiritual heart or commonly referred to as the “Heart Chakra.”
Next, Visualize yourself in what you’re trying to create or manifest. For example; see yourself living in that new home, falling in love with a Soul-Mate, driving that new car, (just smell that new car smell!) Don’t just think about what you want, but make sure and “FEEL IT,” as if you are really experiencing what you’re visualizing. If this makes you laugh, cry, scream, or whatever, then go with it.
Step Five: Gratitude It’s very important to work on releasing what you don’t want in your life during a Full Moon, but it’s equally as important to not leave a VOID after you are done. So you need to fill that space from releasing with gratitude. Being grateful for what you have and around the work you are doing. When we focus on what it is we don’t have we are focusing on “Lack”, and that will only bring in the things we don’t want. Remember what we put our attention on is what will show up! So instead think and feel the things you are grateful for in your heart. Think about what you already have and be grateful for that. Then you will attract more of that kind of energy, which in turn brings in some better feeling stuff! Don’t be held captive by your pains and past trauma, call in the good stuff folks. Yes, you deserve something good, wonderful and amazing!
Allow the Universe to show you what path to follow over the next month, and let the Full Moons light show you the way! Hopefully, at the very least you will be put on a path towards what you truly desire, all while letting go of what you don’t need in your life anymore. It truly is a miraculous process once you learn how to work with the Moon’s energies.
The Harvest Full Moon illuminates the night sky on Friday the 13/14, 2019, in the sign of Pisces depending on what time zone you live in, and occurs right after Midnight Eastern Time and before Midnight Central Time.
The Moon in creative Pisces and is making an opposition to the Sun in detailed Virgo. This Full Moon is a powerful, strong emotional time due to it being under such sensitive Zodiac Signs. Full Moons are always about creating a balance between the Moon and Sun’s opposition. You probably already know what part of your life you should be working on during this Full Moon, but if not you should focus on balancing your logical mind with your intuition to help solve problems. This is about our thoughts versus our feelings, or left and right brain ways of thinking.
This particular Full Moon can bring up issues that have to do with everyday routines, physical health, and a need for order. This is about combining our everyday world with our visions, spiritual health, wellness, and disorders, with the infinite or some kind of spiritual energy. The Virgo (Sun) energy helps us with the tools we use to deal with our daily lives, while the Pisces (Moon) energy helps us connect to our spirituality and create some sort of healing, so we can better deal with our physical reality and limitations.
This Full Moon can help us develop and learn how to express our feminine energies by understanding how to trust our intuition. Practice allowing your feelings to move through you and flow as these energies do. Learn how to have compassion for all things and yourself during this Full Moon. Ask yourself what you need to forgive and release, and what might be blocking you from happiness. To the best of your ability use the healing powers of the Pisces Full “Super Moon” to help.
If you need some balance in your life this Full Moon can help you learn how to maintain order in your everyday life, without neglecting your spiritual health and wellness. Life can get quite chaotic if you ignore either side of the Full Moon energy. This is a time when we must release something like an old behavior, people or a situation, as this is a time of endings but also new beginnings. Whatever you started thinking about or working on during the last New Moon a few weeks ago will now start to come into being. This is a time of romance and relationships as well.
This Full Moon also occurs right after the Sun has aligned with passionate Mars, and the magical Moon has aligned with the dreamy energy of Neptune. But Mars and Neptune also form a tense opposition, and then sweet Venus and mental Mercury form a conjunction, and finally the Moon will harmonize with powerful Pluto! Unless you know your Astrology this can sound so confusing, but really this is about dealing with many different cosmic influences at once. This seems to be the theme for the month of September. Read on to understand how to handle all of this energy!
This is a highly concentrated potent energy that can feel more intense than a regular Full Moon, and it is “Truth Telling Time” folks, as what’s been kept secret, hidden, lost, suppressed, or denied seems to come out and is revealed. So we can feel overly excited or anxious a few days before the Full Moon occurs, as this connection between the Sun and Moon create intense energy until the Moon swells to its Full illumination. Ask for what you would like to know and the Universe will reveal things during this time. Look for signs and symbols both in life and your dreams and visions to figure it out.
A little Fun Fact is that this Full Moon is considered to be what’s called a “Micro-Moon.” This cute little Full Moon is actually the exact opposite of a “Super-Moon”, which is closer to planet Earth. So a Miro-Moon is actually at its farthest point from the Earth. Some scientists believe this does lessen its effects on the planet, but I will bet many others don’t agree, but we love this little guy irregardless. You go little Micro-Moon!
During this time there are usually sudden discoveries made, and we can experience epiphanies and sudden flashes of insight that help Keep Things Real! Our high expectations can get us into some trouble, as we expect more! Our imaginations are very strong, therefore we have a rich fantasy game going on right now, and can have some issues dealing with reality.
Feelings of needing to change course or escaping can also be very strong during this time, which can be fine if we escape in healthy ways through such things as music, movies, entertainment, or just reading a good book. Since this is an emotionally intense time, some folks will turn to alcohol or drugs to forget about their troubles and pain. Not only can this be a problem, but it can be downright dangerous with foggy Neptune’s energy involved. We can lose control and slip into some sort of lost energy, as we cross boundaries and overdo things. Please be careful and keep a watchful eye out for anyone you see struggling, as depression can set in and poor choices can be made. Help those that can’t help themselves, or those who are feeling badly!
For All Zodiac Signs: Mercury entered the sign of proud and expressive Leo on August 11th, and runs through August 29th. With mental Mercury the planet that rules our minds and the way we communicate in the sign of Leo our will and way of thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect. But we don’t mind expressing ourselves as much, and enjoy the finer things in life.
However, we can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us, or is not listening to what we are saying. We should be extra careful, especially with the Sun, Venus, and Mars already in the sign of Leo! That’s a whole lot of fire energy going on and we can be extremely aggressive, pushy, or overbearing. Some folks do not understand how to handle all this strong energy, so if you start to feel upset take some time away and get space, so you can keep that Roar down to a purr.
It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent they are the better. This cycle can help us organize our thoughts, so we can concentrate for longer periods of time, which can help us meet our goals. Our minds are full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance and have a stronger sense of purpose. We also may feel more proud and hopeful, so our thoughts just naturally turn to the positive. We can generally be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, but we also can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and forceful.
The little actions we take do really matter in this energy,butthe details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well. We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are so full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more than usual. Also, watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up oversharing private information with the wrong people.
With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about whom we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.
It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar leveled. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.
After working hard we also may feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner-child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy, and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love, we can become quite irritated and lonely.
