LUNAR ECLIPSE IN AQUARIUS:

We are having a Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius tonight August 7th/8th depending on where you are located in the world.

Eclipses represent changes and shifts in certain areas of our lives and they usually occur in pairs with a Solar Eclipse at the New Moon before or after. The influence can start weeks before, which sets the tone for the following next series of eclipses.

Eclipse season can be symbolic of a turning page, or even beginning a new chapter, in the story of our life. The series of eclipses is happening in the Aquarius- Leo axis with the upcoming Solar Eclipse occurring in Leo. Eclipses occur near one of the two lunar nodes which intersects on the path of Moon and the pathway of the Sun. Tonight it will be happening near the South Node which is associated with the past and certain aspects of this energy that could be holding us back.

Aquarius is the sign of friends, the team, the group, and the collective. Although we may experience a few positive new developments in relation to this energy, ultimately this is a South Node Lunar Eclipse which is about making changes and even endings in some cases, endings related to what it could be that is holding us back.

In the sky Leo-Aquarius nodal polarity, could be avoidance of our heart's desires and not operating enough from a creative and self-expressive side. The energies of this eclipse reflects necessary changes that could be a quick change in the coming weeks.

This eclipse's trine to Jupiter in Libra offers expansive energy in our relationships and partnerships. Friendships as well, this aspect is combined with a supporting sextile to Saturn in Sagittarius, it helps us look at the big picture. This combination involves everything to do with travel, foreign countries, currencies, education, teaching, marketing, publishing, or anything to do with reaching an audience. There may also be a theme of soul growth, related to bringing in harmony, truth, balance, lawfulness, morals, and justice.

Reflection during this Period

What changes do you have to make in relations to your network, collective, colleagues, friends, within a group that you are involved with?

What are you learning through your relationships?

Where are there opportunities for growth in relationships?

Reflect on how you're feeling during the eclipse, ground into Mother Earth and trust the process of life.

Full Moon in Capricorn

This Sunday July 9th there is a Full Moon in Capricorn (17 deg), and you’re likely already feeling it!

 

capricorn1

 

Full and New Moons are influencing us whether we realize it or not, The tide goes in and out with the moon’s new and full moon phases, and likewise our emotions are triggered by planetary movements. Knowing about what the planets are doing helps make sense of behavior and feelings.

 

What message does this Full Moon bring to us? There’s quite the feeling of electricity in the air, which can leave you feeling buzzed. This Full Moon is a degree away from Pluto in Capricorn. The Sun and Mars are opposing them in Cancer. Mars isn’t extremely close, but in this case we’re definitely feeling Mars energy, Pluto energy, and Saturn energy.

 

Full Moons amplify emotions and bring things to a head. Astrological events don’t create issues that aren’t already within you or around you somewhere. They bring things to the surface or to your attention so that they can be addressed, ideally in a healthy, positive way (that’s where knowing these triggers are happening becomes useful!). It presents a push to explore opportunities or get out of your comfort zone and express your needs.

 

The Full Moon may bring up questions like… Is there anything I’m not expressing? Are my needs or desires being fulfilled? Is there something in my life needing healing, closure, transformation or release?

 

This Full Moon is in practical, ambitious Capricorn, squaring Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter is all about expansion and abundance, and a square is a challenge and that can make things feel a bit tense. There may be some dreams you are really wanting to move into right now, The Full Moon brings your emotions to a climactic moment, so you could feel like you are about to explode, Don’t give up! This is a time to step away, take some deep breaths, do some yoga, go to a workout class, get out in nature, have a swim in the ocean, bake some cookies, anything to clear your head which is  being filled by a climax with intensity.

 

 

The Full Moon is pretty much right on Pluto. Pluto is all about deep, deep transformation. He’s about diving in to our shadow side and seeing what we’d usually rather avoid or confronting what we have a hard time owning about ourselves (both the good qualities and the not so good). Pluto asks us to look at how Power and Control are manifesting in our lives. Where is it appropriate to let go, surrender and trust your Soul to direct the show in ways you may not currently understand? Pluto helps us get clear on these lines, although we usually go through quite a bit of push/pull/resistance before we get to the clear part! Keep up and keep going!

 

Pluto will ruthlessly destruct anything we have outgrown, and whatever no longer serves us. Pluto gets you onto your highest evolutionary path, and he tends not to do it in a gentle way.  With this Full Moon right on Pluto, more people than usual will feel his energy and so be aware of the fact that this weekend can trigger a short yet intense dark night of the soul for some. Nurture yourself, take care of yourself and if you can, extend some nurturing to anyone in your circle who is going through a hard time. It is going to be a big Full Moon weekend for sure!

 

Transformative Blessings

Persephone and Pacific Northwest’s Winter

My winters for the past ten years have been while living in southern California, my winters were not very different from my summers. Although, I’m born and raised from New York, and east coast winters are intense! However, this year I found my own spiritual journey that had lead me to the Pacific Northwest where I found immense happiness– as well as my first true experience of living through a Pacific Northwest winter.

In Greek Mythology, there was a goddess named Persephone. She was a child of Zeus, the king of the Gods and Demeter, the goddess of Earth and nature. Persephone was wooed by many gods, but Demeter, ever the over protective mother rejected all their advances and eventually hid her daughter away. It was shortly after this that Hades, the god of the underworld abducted Persephone and swept her away to his kingdom. As Demeter desperately searched for her beloved daughter, the world began to change. Life came to a standstill. The flowers fainted away and died. The grasses faded away. Trees bore no fruit and the temperature turned antarctic. As Demeter’s anguish grew, earth continued to die and rest in peace. Zeus intervened and summoned Hades return Persephone to her mother. Before he agreed, Hades tricked Persephone into eating four pomegranate seeds, which effectively forced her to spend one month each year in Hades for every seed she’d eaten. When Demeter and her daughter were together, the Earth flourished with radiant vegetation and bright color, but for four months each year, when Persephone returned to the underworld, the earth once again became an infertile realm of darkness. This is an origin story to explain winter.

There is something about this season of winter that almost forces you to begin a process of turning inward, of reflecting upon the events prior to this slowed kapha activity.  Surely during this time, Demeter remembers happier times with her daughter.

This is a time of year when the world, and our own spirit, is renewed once more. It is a time of endings and new beginnings that fills our hearts with peace, joy, love and laughter. We are almost forced by Nature to spend more time with our beloved, with our friends and family, sharing our abundance with them.

Happy Full Moon- Intuitive Moon

First Full Moon of the year, Jan 12, 2017. This moon is in the sign of Cancer. Cancer is a water sign. With the water signs also comes a deeper ability to tap into our intuition and inner knowing. It is normal with this astrological placement, to have the desire to move through a cleansing and a detox for your spirit. There will absolutely be some pearls of wisdom to appear & come out of the next few weeks ahead.

Full Moon wishes come true,

Kelly Krishna Dunn 🙂
