Full Moon Astrology Article: Standing for Your Own Truth

This month’s Full Moon is extraordinary and can have a positive long term effect in your life path moving forward.

The New Moon theme this month is “creative leadership.” The current Pisces Full Moon is building on that theme with the realization that true leadership honors the truth of your inner being. This truth of your being, your essence, has the strength come what may to stand uncompromisingly for your personal truth within the circumstances of your life.

What separates this type of inner truth from mere facts, opinions, or wishful thinking can be found within the Pisces archetype. Pisces is the most powerful of the water signs in the zodiac. The power of Pisces can create a momentum at the soul level that manifests as a powerful self-assertiveness. When this Pisces momentum is directed toward goals it can be as unstoppable as a tsunami.

We are each continuously making decisions. The cumulative weight of these decisions adds up over time to steer us in either of two directions: either toward or away from our destiny. At this Full Moon as you align more clearly with your inner truth, you have the opportunity make decisions and take actions that align you with your destiny.

Another significant player right now is Neptune, which is conjunct the Full Moon. Neptune is the ruler of Pisces, so there is an additional emphasis at this Moon on the spiritual blessings available. You can feel this during the Full Moon as a self-quickening or energizing effect that speaks to the truth of your being.

The ultimate power of this Full Moon lies in the realization that you are divine, a son or daughter of the universe. When you assert your own truth in the mist of the outward confusion of those around you, you experience this truth of your divinity.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Chart Aug 2015There are three powerful concentrations of energy in this Full Moon astrology chart. They appear as conjunctions: the Sun is conjunct Jupiter, Venus is conjunct Mars, and the Moon is conjunct Neptune.

These conjunctions occurring at the same time as a Full Moon represent one of the most powerful patterns possible. The Sun/Jupiter conjunction offers a new sense of connectedness to others without judgement and preconceived ideas of their worth. The Venus/Mars conjunction offers a surge in life momentum that supports the deeper intent of the Soul. The Moon/Neptune conjunction offers an increased sensitivity to an inner surge of self-quickening energy to reach your highest goals in life.

This pattern is powerful not only because of the depth of realization that is possible, but because of the possibility to more clearly see and release the shadow aspects of these patterns, which are also being activated.

The shadow side of the Sun/Jupiter conjunction is a kind of expanding yet detached freedom that results in emptiness from a lack of connection to others. The shadow side of the Moon/Neptune conjunction is an inability to let go of a desired outcome. As a result you can be trapped in other people’s ideas or expectations. The shadow side of the Mars/Venus conjunction appears as hesitation or procrastination, denying the internal urge for a new start toward a path of self-actualization and a new beginning.

I’m including the shadow aspects here to help you understand the power contained within our Full Moon astrology pattern. Living the fullness of your essence and staying aligned with your “personal truth” will automatically guard against any of these shadow elements.

Standing for your own truth also honors the highest good of those around you. It allows you to let go of others expectations and stand for your own truth. It activates the leadership quality of your being so you can move forward toward self-actualization as a divine being of the universe. In turn you support others to do the same.

New Moon and Venus Sparking Leo Creativity

Astrology Article: Leadership as a Creative Response

The New Moon this month is packed with creative energy capable of elevating your natural gifts into the realm of personal leadership. Creativity, leadership, and service to the greater good are related and are being activated now in an integrated way.

Leo, being a fire sign, incorporates the areas of your life where there is some sort of energy that’s capable of creating a spark. The creative spark must come from activity, from some type of interaction or friction that produces fuel for the Leo fire to burn. This is Leo’s creative process. It requires circumstances in your life to spark the flame of your self-expression.

This Lunar month success and leadership go hand in hand. The role of leadership is the most mature form of self-expression Leo can energize. Last month’s influx of energy helped to develop new levels of emotional integration. This foundation will work quite nicely to support your expansion into the energies of creative leadership that are available this month.

This month’s emphasis on leadership implies self-discipline, maturity, and the ideal of service to humanity.

True leadership isn’t only expressed through managing a team of individuals. It can be as simple as taking a prominent role in inspiring others through personal interactions.

This month, use your experiences and circumstances to trigger and fuel your creativity. Use your creativity to make the world a better place. In this way, you’ll harness the natural energies of the New Moon to inspire others through any form of leadership toward which you naturally gravitate.

Astrology Pattern

New Moon Astrology Chart for August 2015We have four planets working together to provide this new level of creativity. The Sun, Moon, Venus, and Jupiter combine their energy to create a powerhouse of personal opportunity for new leadership.

Leadership takes on many different forms, each one capable of using your natural gifts for an extra boost to something purposeful in the world. One of the keys for success this month is a mature, creative response to circumstances, capable of expressing how you are feeling and then using this response to your life experiences as creative fuel.

The energies are complex at this New Moon. The Moon is balsamic to Venus and Jupiter, yet Venus is in a new phase relationship to the Sun. What this means is that there are two complementary processes at work – one is letting go and one is incorporating something new.

First, it’s necessary to let go of your previous ideas of what leadership means, especially any fear that the word ‘leadership’ conjures in your mind. Then you can be fully present in new ways to incorporate a new creative response to your current situation. In addition, with your fresh approach you’ll be able to use what you have integrated from recent experiences in terms of character and emotional maturity.

Express how you really feel in the moment. In the coming month creative self-expression that expands into leadership is produced by real events and real circumstances that trigger a creative response.

The idea here is to let go of how you felt about something last week or last month.

Life moves forward with new creative energies. You’re not locked into a tired old response to life. Success this month will rest in a spontaneous yet mature reaction to your life, especially to any old circumstances or patterns that may appear.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Aquarian Power and Inner Balance

This is a powerful Full Moon capable of delivering an expanded level of self-mastery. This new mastery will come through inspired awareness, a kind of brilliance capable of integrating the three main aspects of your being, the physical, mental and emotional bodies.

You always have access to your physical, mental, and emotional bodies. It’s the integration of the three that leads to full empowerment. This Full Moon in Aquarius makes available a unifying energy or power to bring into balance all three of these bodies to work as one. This integration will come through your ability to engage and interact with the circumstances of your life.

The previous New Moon delivered a theme of emotional integration and for many, the last two weeks have presented challenging personal circumstances. With the Full Moon in Aquarius, your personal struggles will receive an influx of spiritual energy in the form of a greater degree of emotional self-mastery.

This Full Moon has the unique distinction of not only providing a greater level of integration, but brings with it additional power. Uranus, which rules Aquarius, has moved into a trine position and gives access to new insights leading to action. This type of power has the potential to be a game changer, in that this power can change your circumstances by fueling an inspired level of self-discipline or inner-mastery.

The easiest way to access this Aquarian power is through your own process of inner “teamwork.” Self-mastery and discipline can be thought of as the tools of your inner guide, or your inner “coach.” This inner coach facilitates and distributes your responses to current challenges between the physical, mental, and emotional bodies.

The key is not to rely on a single aspect of your being, but to learn to distribute and integrate the three. When the three are balanced they work as a team. When one aspect is out of balance the team dynamic falls apart. Each one can be accessed separately but the mastery lies in getting them to work together. Rely on the physical when appropriate. Allow your mental process to do its job. Above all, it is your authentic emotional guidance connected with Spirit that integrates the entire system.

Emotional authenticity is aligned with spirit and helps you develop the maturity to use your emotions to bring balance to body and mind. In this way you needn’t worry that your emotions will take over and attempt to run the entire show.

This Full Moon activates a new integration of your body, mind, and emotions with the power of the Self (Spirit) as the inner coach. Throughout the next two weeks there’s an additional level of power available through using inner discipline to approach challenges with emotional authenticity and inner guidance.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Astrology Chart for July 31, 2015To understand the potential of this Full Moon power it will be useful to dive a little deeper into the symbolism of Aquarius.

Aquarius is an air (mental) sign and ruled by the planet Uranus, which offers the power to use inspired insight. Aquarius is called the “Sign of the Water Bearer” and is depicted as an angel pouring water (the pure light of Spirit and authentic emotion) from the heavens down to Earth. Within this symbology, the three elements that govern body, mind, and emotions are represented. We have water (emotions/spirit), the earth (body), and air (mind).

In this symbolism of light pouring like water from heaven, Spirit and emotion are one. Spirit expresses through emotion in the ways we react, feel, love, and connect. It is our emotional body that helps us integrate the spiritual aspect of our being. Authentic joy, for example, is an emotional expression of Spirit.

The power of Uranus symbolized as the downward pouring of water (emotions/spirit) from the higher realms is the key to understanding that Spirit, expressing through authentic emotions, is what activates this great power and integrates the whole.

In other words, it’s the expression of Spirit through your emotions that’s capable of uniting both the physical and mental realms for inspired work.

The power of the Full Moon brings an awareness of this amazing potential. Each aspect of the Full Moon astrology pattern supports your ability to expand into a new command of Aquarian power, emotional mastery, and inner-teamwork.

It’s the power of Uranus in Aries that activates the desire to expand into self-mastery. It’s the power of the Sun in Leo that contributes inner leadership and self-discipline. Mercury conjunct the Sun supports bringing the mental realm into balance with the physical and emotional.

What was started at the New Moon with the theme of emotional integration, is now fully expanded into realizing the power of your body, mind, and emotions working together for your personal success.

Astrology Summary

This Aquarian Full Moon brings a level of personal power to unite body, mind, and spirit through emotional integration. Emotional integration is perhaps the hardest skill to master, but there is extra help available. Any challenging circumstances are opportunities for personal mastery, through your ability to use authentic and mature emotions. This is especially true in the realm of all of your relationships. Uranus is providing additional power to activate an overall pattern of integration and self-mastery.

The New Moon in a Futuristic World

New Moon Astrology: Emotional Integration for Personal Fulfillment

This month’s New Moon theme is building on last month’s Lunar cycle theme of mental clarity. The opportunity for new clarity last month was experienced through a powerful build-up of energies. This week’s New Moon in Cancer carries forward these aspects into the emotional realm. You’ll have the opportunity for new clarity and balance of your emotions, as well as fulfillment of purpose through emotional integration. as you experience an integration of your most powerful emotions.

The emotional balance and new emotional clarity are positive benefits of this month’s Cancer New Moon. The combined factors expressed in the New Moon astrology chart will enable you to harness and integrate all of the build-up of power we’ve experienced over the last several weeks.

Cancer always promotes inner security and stability, especially through establishing relationships that support and nurture. It’s the zodiac sign which is most often associated with the home, because it provides a basic foundation from which to go out into the world and experience success. As the ruler of Cancer, the Moon offers extra help for integration and emotional clarity this month by helping you adapt to new situations and learn to nurture yourself by experiencing success and stability in the world.

This Cancer Moon supports your ability to embody life and to experience fulfillment and joy. Emotions this month will be more in sync with mental and spiritual outlooks, and also in relationships with others. This alignment offers the opportunity for increased inner stability, inner balance and equilibrium.

All factors are contributing to amplify and balance the deepest potentials of Cancer, creating the opportunity for you to experience fulfillment and joy this month. It’s through the successful integration and balance of emotional energies that you’ll be able to effectively express the high concentration of energy which has been building ever since the last Lunar cycle.

Astrology Pattern: Fulfillment through Independence and Action

New Moon Astrology Chart July 2015Emotional integration is a key theme for this entire Lunar cycle (until the next New Moon). In addition to the natural conjunction of the Sun and Moon (the New Moon), we have two other conjunctions which are contributing to the potentials for integration and providing some very positive support.

With Venus and Jupiter conjunct, the two combined energies help create enough independence so that personal relationships don’t become overbearing or exhausting. Jupiter is supporting your emotional self-reliance, which results in clarity by strengthening your personal boundaries. Venus provides new capacities for additional growth and harmony within your relationships.

Mars in conjunction with Mercury is providing the strength of will to implement decisions in a straight-forward manner. This pairing also helps to establish a level of emotional integration that supports rational decision-making. The combined result is new clarity, both emotionally and mentally.

Overall, this extra help of the planetary conjunctions supports the integration of your spiritual, mental, and emotional faculties. These three aspects of your being function best when they are balanced and interdependent. It’s precisely this balance which will offer new levels of emotional integration and clarity.

Pluto continues to be in a very powerful position in the overall astrology pattern for the entire Lunar cycle this month. In its present position opposite the New Moon, Pluto amplifies and brings awareness to all of the other elements of growth already mentioned, and represents powerful processes of personal transformation with the potential for making big changes in your life.

Astrology Summary

This month’s New Moon is supporting a three-fold integration of your emotions, mental processes, and spiritual ideals. With the zodiac sign of Cancer there’s the deep desire to fully embody your life, and to experience inner fulfillment and inner stability.

Stability is often felt through home, family, and relationships, however, this is only the most outward manifestation of the Cancerian potentials. Ultimately true stability comes from inner fulfillment and connection to Source.

This month continues an ongoing build-up of power and energy. If you can maintain equilibrium you can use this power for personal transformation. The New Moon’s gift of emotional integration will provide you a great deal of support and offer balance across the spectrum of challenges or opportunities that may emerge.

Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Full Moon Astrology Article: Trusting Your Process

This Full Moon will bring illumination and activate a new sense of clarity, especially regarding any issues, challenges, projects, or opportunities you are currently working through. In the coming two weeks there is also the potential for a new sense of personal empowerment, fueling your inner stability and nurturing your effective use of power in the world.

During the week following the Full Moon, a tremendous amount of energy will be building. This isn’t something to fear. Although you may be experiencing emotional intensity, it’s important to understand that this build-up of energy plays a necessary role in the larger scheme of things to come. The Capricorn Moon will support your ability to move through emotional intensity and navigate circumstances with trust and confidence.

This buildup of energies is leading to the potential for breakthrough. In about a week, the Moon will pass over (transit) the planet Uranus. Uranus offers the power to break free of limitation to pursue greater success. This coming Moon-Uranus conjunction will direct this week’s build up of energy toward something useful.

It is important now for you to trust whatever process was started at the New Moon. Even if things feel emotionally difficult or confusing, there is mental clarity available to help you move forward in life in the most positive way possible. This is a natural clarity that you can rely on. This clear awareness will counteract any emotional confusion or instability that may emerge.

There is a practicality with this Capricorn Moon that will support you if you can trust in the process.

Astrology Pattern: Extra Power for Maximum Results

Full Moon Astrology Chart for July 2015There’s an intense concentration of power contained within our Full Moon Astrology chart.

The two planets most capable of providing maximum power are Mars and Pluto, and they both play key roles in the current Full Moon. With Mars conjunct the Sun, and Pluto conjunct the Moon, this Full Moon is infused with the power of change. On the personal level, be aware that whatever circumstances or issues in your life are requiring maximum effort can be transformed through this potential for change.

Uranus is in a key position to express this buildup of power and support the release of pressure. On the personal level, Uranus can help you achieve maximum potential by providing a breakthrough, supporting the release of old and out-dated patterns in your life.

There is a shadow side to this Full Moon. The result of all of this power build-up could be the experience of mayhem or chaos, especially if the proper expression isn’t understood. The shadow aspect will show up in the tendency to respond to the pressure (stress) from an unconscious or immature emotional reaction. There may be immediate relief in the release of pent-up energy, but the opportunity for constructive expansion will be missed.

Understanding the purpose of this Full Moon astrology pattern is the key to avoiding the chaotic activation that’s possible with the unconscious use of all this power. By accessing mental clarity, this pattern can be used for the directed expression of power to achieve the results you desire.

Conclusion

This is an intense Full Moon. It’s important in the coming days to nurture yourself and stay grounded and emotionally centered. Keep in mind that this build-up of energy must be used constructively or it could contribute to disorder. The shadow side will want to indiscriminately explode as a way to relieve a build-up of emotional pressure.  Use your mental clarity to see where to direct your energy, and this powerful build-up can be directed toward making a positive difference in your life.

The amount of energy available for personal transformation is perfectly aligned now for a breakthrough. The key is to remember to trust the process and move forward with your sights set on your long-term intentions. This isn’t the time to spontaneously combust, just because it satisfies the need for temporary relief. Put your energies toward the future and trust that you’re headed in the right direction.

New Moon Night Sky

New Moon Astrology Article: Secrets for Mental Clarity

This Gemini New Moon brings new insight and the potential to see beyond the mere appearance of the world around you. This is a month to hold a high level of curiosity. If you do, you’ll discover new clarity and understandings that help you see the world in new ways.

The Meaning of a Gemini Moon

The New Moon in Gemini supports your desire for discovering new ways to interact with your world. Each new discovery becomes a new type of relationship and a new way to grow and adapt to your surroundings.

Gemini is about learning, and Gemini discoveries lead to new forms of knowledge to be used for understanding the world in which you live. This knowledge is much more than the accumulation of facts. Rather, Gemini knowledge involves the discovery of the patterns and the relationships that underlie the facts.

The Moon always supports your ability to consciously adapt to the present moment, your ever-changing NOW. The special aspect of this Gemini New Moon is to support your mind by adapting, nurturing, and growing your awareness of the moment and your ability to live fully in the present.

A Month of Increased Mental Clarity

New-Moon-June-2015In addition to the Sun and Moon, Mercury and Mars are also in the sign of Gemini. This grouping offers a tremendous amount of support for additional mental clarity.

This coming month is a good time to consider starting any new project where mental acuity and precision are required.  Mars provides the energy, activity, and drive to get things done. Mercury in opposition to Saturn brings an objective approach to life. This extra objectivity (Saturn) sees the world in practical ways. Saturn helps things make more sense, especially if you can see the bigger picture of your circumstances (Saturn in Sagittarius).

The Secret Formula

There’s one last opportunity I would like to discuss concerning this powerful Gemini New Moon energy. It’s related to the position of our 30° Saturn (opposing Mercury) in combination with the exact degree of the New Moon (26° Gemini).

The Sabian archetype for 26° Gemini suggests that there are specific times within a cycle to let go of all but essentials in order see clearly the path ahead. In this way, the New Moon is directly supporting your ability to move forward with minimal baggage.

The Moon is always moving consciousness from the present moment to the future. The Moon doesn’t have a memory of the past. What it does carry are the habits and instincts which are formed in the past and carried forward into the present. Paring down to minimal baggage is a clever way of moving forward with your essential truth, your essence.  Habits that no longer serve you are simply left behind.

The secret formula for this Gemini New Moon lies in using the potential for mental clarity to discover the bare essentials in each moment. Bare essentials in this context are any of the things that represent your essence.  In other words, if you strip away all that is superficial, what is left is your selfhood, your true essence.

Nature gives us a beautiful example of this during the winter months. Frost-covered trees glisten in the sunlight, their leaves long gone. The winter trees and ground are bare, but still hold their vital essence for next year’s spring growth deep within. What is carried forward are only the most basic structuring elements needed for the future.

Your opportunity now is in letting go of all but bare essentials, while holding on to the mental clarity of discovering your true essence in every moment. This discovery of your essence is the most powerful form of Gemini knowledge, and it supports your momentum into the future.

Full Moon 2015 over Blue Lake

Astrology Article: Recognizing Your Prosperity

Our Full Moon astrology for the beginning of 2015 has a very positive tone. The chart carries the feeling of prosperity in combination with an attitude of helping others. For those of you looking for a fresh start, our 15 degree Capricorn Moon is conjunct Pluto, which is a strong indicator that 2015 will be nothing like 2014.

The astrological pattern I’m most excited about is connected with Uranus. Uranus is opening up an increased ability to see the bigger picture of what this year might mean for you. Its position will help you gauge and plan your progress without rushing. Uranus will enable you to move into new ventures with the insight of a larger context.

It’s important to look ahead and contemplate the idea of personal prosperity. There are strong indicators for prosperity, however with Mars, Venus, and Mercury all in Aquarius your personal prosperity is connected to a larger context. It doesn’t occur in a vacuum.

To access prosperity potentials, ask yourself the following two questions:

• How will my personal prosperity contribute to the success of those within my circle of influence?
• How will my decisions affect the next generation?

The main point of these questions is to recognize that your prosperity is tied to others.
The hidden message of the Full Moon is to focus on the big picture and share the good that will be coming your way this year.

Astrology Pattern

Jan 2015 Full Moon Astrology ChartAn astrological pattern worth mentioning involves the planet Saturn as it forms a T-square with Mars (offering practical insights into your desire for more) and Jupiter in Leo (expanding your personal wealth and capacity for sharing).

Saturn adds a sense of group responsibility to the reality of having more than you need. This sense of having “more” as an indicator of prosperity, is also coupled with the idea of sharing with those you care about.

Uranus is also forming a T-square to the Sun and a Moon/Pluto conjunction. The power associated with this pattern is not only self-empowering, but indicates the possibility of a positive future based on freedom as you expand into new territories and success.

The overall astrological pattern is very positive and indicates a fantastic year ahead.

Summary

Opportunities for success and prosperity will be the norm this year if you keep your focus on moving forward and taking care of those you care about, especially with the idea of providing for the generations to come.

This Full Moon can be used as used as an indicator of a fantastic year ahead. Happy New Year!

Full Moon over Mount Baker, Washington.

Full Moon Astrology Article:
Creativity is Fully Available

With our current Full Moon there’s a definite shift toward creativity with a powerful ‘grand fire trine’ pattern which is bringing creativity, passion, and inspiration into our lives.

You can clearly see this powerful astrology pattern in our Full Moon chart as the triangle created by the blue circled planets. These three planets are activating the energizing aspect of the element of fire through the three fire signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius.

The Full Moon chart emphasizes the positive characteristics of both Sagittarius (Sun) and Gemini (Moon). Sagittarius energy produces a deeper understanding from new experiences, and Gemini is able to take the wisdom distilled from those experiences and organize effective ways to make those experiences real in your everyday life.

Your opportunity to take advantage of this powerful grand fire trine will come through your ability to embody or put to use what you have recently learned about yourself. What you have learned may have unfolded over the past several months, or specifically involve any profound insights you may have experienced since the recent New Moon.

Sagittarius energy plays an expanded role during the next two weeks. Not only is the Sun in Sagittarius, but Jupiter, which rules Sagittarius, is one of the planets involved in our grand fire trine. Jupiter has the ability to integrate and expand all the creativity being felt with the grand trine. The Gemini Full Moon will further integrate that creativity with an increased awareness of the importance to share and exchange with others, thus anchoring your creative energy flow in a concrete expression.

The next two weeks are perfect for taking advantage of this creative energy. Embrace your ideas and creative impulses and then expand them through sharing and communicating them with others. Each person has her or his own unique style of creativity. Whether it’s through visual art, writing, speaking, or something as simple as cooking special food, the next two weeks are fully supporting your own unique creative expression.

Astrology Pattern

Full Moon Chart December 2014The Full Moon Astrology pattern is being supported by a grand trine in all three fire signs of the Zodiac. Uranus in Aries, Jupiter in Leo, and the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius.

This astrology pattern is emphasizing the creative factor found in the fire element and is directly accessible through an objective and mental expression, as seen in the pattern of Mercury conjunct with the Sun. Uranus and Jupiter are also working to expand and express your ability to communicate that creativity with others.

Even the Sabian symbol at the exact degree of the Full Moon is supporting this idea.

Sabian Symbol for 15° GEMINI — TWO CHILDREN TALKING TO EACH OTHER, EXCHANGING THEIR KNOWLEDGE.

With the Full Moon in Gemini there’s an additional impulse to share your creativity with others. It’s clear from the Sabian symbol that this creative impulse includes expansive communication, symbolized by the children’s two-way exchange, in order to support a more complete integration of the fiery creativity of our grand trine.

Summary

Our Full Moon astrology is providing an enhanced level of creativity which needs to be shared and exchanged with others in order to be full activated. The energies available during the next two weeks are full of positive outcomes, provided you able to creatively express your ideas and feelings. This is an ideal time to expand your goals through creative planning and sharing your ideas with like-minded people.

It is my deepest privilege to share these thoughts with you.

The Full Moon illuminates and activates whatever was released with the manifesting wave of New Moon energy two weeks ago. In the coming two weeks look for ways to celebrate and take inspired action, especially from whatever you have embraced or experienced since the New Moon. Be patient with challenges that emerge in the coming days, recognizing that they are also a necessary part of your expansion.

Astrology Article: A Path of Excellence

This entire month you are riding a wave of manifestation initiated by the New Moon. The basic energy behind this wave of creation is in connecting more fully to your life path.

Your unique life path is based on your soul essence. In the big picture your Life Path is also known as your Dharma, the way in which your daily life supports your highest contribution to the world.

Our Full Moon is providing three new skills that can help you connect more fully with your life’s path. These skills are:

  • The gift of focus on excellence
  • The urge to learn something new
  • The ability to discriminate what to release in your life

Focusing on Excellence

To access excellence in a practical way, begin by focusing on the standards of quality you bring to your work and your approach to learning new things. Excellence isn’t a quality which appears overnight. It’s achieved over time through study, practice, and hard work.

Focusing on standards of quality and learning new things in the coming two weeks provides you a boost of confidence. There’s a good chance you’ll experience little breakthroughs, or at the very least, an ease in your approach to life and your life path.

Pursuing an Urge to Learn

The cosmic support over the next two weeks is encouraging you to learn new things by cultivating your interests. Whatever you are learning, your understanding will deepen and mature in new ways.

The Full Moon period up to our next New Moon is energetically linking your urge for new knowledge with the desire to more fully connect with your life path. This is a time to cultivate your interests in order for new excellence to emerge.

Discrimination and Letting Go

Excellence requires a strategy for overcoming problems and obstacles. Discrimination about what, when, and how to let go is an important aspect of bringing quality and connection to your life path.

Discrimination is learned through practice. In the next two weeks, it will work to your advantage to avoid jumping to conclusions. Think about the implications of your decisions, and hold yourself to a high standard of excellence when choosing. If you don’t have all the facts or information, take the time to learn what you need to know.

Excellence and Your Life Path

During the next two weeks, your pursuit of excellence can infuse your life path with new confidence and a deeper understanding of what is possible in your life. Keep in mind these three aspects of support:

  • Focus on the intention to bring higher standards of excellence to every area of your life.
  • Recognize and follow your urge to learn something new.
  • Exercise discrimination and prudence when choices arise.

The natural illumination of the Full Moon brings the gift of excellence to your life path.

Each week of this month’s Lunar Cycle will offer new tools and momentum for energizing your life purpose.

Astrology Article: The Art of Connecting to Your Life Path

Each person has a unique life path. This is the path we all travel which leads us to greater success and our future.  For some, it’s a challenge to get a clear glimpse of what the path fully entails. For others, their path is experienced as continually unfolding, layer after layer. For still others, they understand what their life path is, but have difficult connecting with it in a practical sense.

Regardless of the specifics, we all have a sense that there is something greater toward which we are traveling.

This New Moon in Pisces is bring an awareness of a new gift you can use to more deeply connect with your life path. The New Moon impulse will specifically assist you in finding the necessary guidance to help you emotionally connect to your highest purpose. This guidance is will be available as increased access to your intuition and supports the deeper feelings associated with knowing your work in the world.

As you increase your expertise with this type of emotional connection, it allows you to enjoy more of life and, at the same time, become more conscious of your own embodiment of greatness, which is your fullest potential.

Your Emotional Connection and Intuition

Your emotions and your intuition have a unique relationship with your life path. The type of emotions I’m referring to here are the charged responses you have as you react to life’s experiences. These emotions can be instinctual or conscious.

Your instinctual drives are those biological urges motivating you to survive, raise a family, and fight for more security. Childhood conditioning is a bit different. The first 7 years of your life, you absorb your surroundings and environment without filtering the content. You download into your subconscious all the values, ideals, and fears of your family and surroundings. This programs your instinctual responses to life.

Both conscious and subconscious emotions can be used for guidance, but emotions stemming from childhood conditioning usually operate as instinctual drives. However, the New Moon energies are providing extra support in moving from mere instincts to a more intuitively guided emotional response involving conscious choice.

Mercury and Mars are providing the additional energy of skill, strength, and courage to open you up to new possibilities, and the energy to transcend obstacles in your way. These obstacles include your own early childhood conditioning.

Conscious access to your emotions leads to a greater access of intuition. Intuition is a form of guidance and perception based on your relationship to the bigger picture, often referred to the “Greater Whole.”

Your Life Path

The art of embodying your life path is to live “pure of heart.” This means you’re constantly checking in with yourself to see if you’re following your heart’s desire rather than living to support someone else’s values.

Success in following your life path involves connecting with your highest good, including the mental awareness that you can make life decisions based on your intuition rather than instinct alone.

The New Moon energies are providing the opportunity to release your old conditioning and replace it with intuition. As you move forward pursuing your life path, your highest success will come from intuitive decisions rather than from your unconscious patterns.

Connecting and Bring it All Together

Emotions are a necessary ingredient in successfully connecting to your life path. They allow you to connect and be present to your highest good, allowing you to connect to the bigger picture of life itself.  Our Pisces New Moon is providing you the opportunity to transcend your instinctual drives by replacing them with conscious emotional responses, connecting to your intuitive guidance and perceptions.

Your life path involves the balance of pursuing what’s best for you as you work to fulfill a specific function in the greater good of the world. This life path connects you and intersects with others and the world in a way which ultimately connects you with your higher-self and spirit.

This is the Lunar month to connect with the present moment and follow your highest joy.
