Rebirth into the Age of Aquarius: Solar Eclipse Aug 2017

The total Solar Eclipse of 2017 happens during the Leo New Moon. In addition to the normal effects of the New Moon and the launch of a new Lunar cycle of change, the darkening of our Sun produces a shadow that affects our consciousness in a significant way. This article explains the unique nature of our total Solar eclipse and how you can access its unique eclipse signature to awaken to the new energies coming to our Earth.

The Sun and Moon are continuously working together to make personal growth and consciousness both meaningful and successful. They each have a specific and complementary role to play in supporting our life on earth. The Sun is a universal, impersonal, source of energy, life, and love. The Sun does not discriminate and gives the light of life and consciousness equally to all. The Moon has a more intimate, personal, relationship to each of us. The Moon’s role is to release and deliver Solar energy over time in order to govern all forms and rhythms of growth on Earth. This includes all processes of personal growth for each of us, including our intuitive connection to the rhythms of time and

Responding to the Bigger Picture: New Moon Astrology July 2017

Our New Moon astrology is bringing a wave of energy that’s promoting self-reliance and independence to help us orient toward a larger perspective that’s in alignment with new worlds. This same wave of energy can also have an opposite effect, especially if it’s centered around a drive to independence that is consumed by trivial details and immature attitudes. This article will help you understand how to navigate your personal choices and maximize your opportunities in the coming month.

If you have been following the Lunar Journal, you know that I’ve been writing about a major shift that is currently playing out through the astrology of our solar system.

A New Pathway in a New World: Full Moon Astrology July 2017

Our Full Moon Astrology brings all of us to a crossroads of realization regarding the nature of our reality. These realizations include the awareness that our true power lies within in the choices we make. This is a time when our choices have the power to set the direction and chart a new path into our future.

Even the most ordinary of choices can and will have far-reaching impacts. In retrospect we may well look back to this time as being a pivotal turning point in our path. The choices we make now, no matter how ordinary they seem, can and will have far-reaching impacts in our personal lives and also for the larger scope of humanity.

Rising to the Occasion: New Moon Astrology June 2017

Our New Moon astrology occurs only three days after the Summer Solstice, creating a consolidation of potentials that are needed to push all of us toward new territory in our lives. This expansion doesn’t mean your life direction necessarily needs to change, but you must be willing to make adjustments and possibly reorient yourself to the possibility that you are entering uncharted terrain. While it’s possible that this new territory may result in the expansion of a completely new life direction, it may also simply result in a new orientation and new awareness within the direction you’re already headed

Preparing for a Better Future: Full Moon Astrology June 2017

Our Sagittarius Full Moon astrology is giving each of us insight into how best to prepare for a better future. For the coming two weeks your focus on preparation for your future is the best tool you have in your journey to reach farther and beyond your current circumstances (our New Moon theme). This article illustrates the key forms of preparation that are available to you now.

The New Moon theme of reaching farther and beyond, requires a certain kind of letting go, especially in regards to what we believe, what we think is true, and our understanding of reality. To reach farther than our current understanding, we need the practice of letting go while still holding to our personal truth. This entire lunar month is about the activation of a seed idea, or seed wisdom if you prefer, that enables us to transcend and go farther than we ever thought possible, and to do this without sacrificing the essential truth of who we are.
