The Lunar Journal is revolutionizing our awareness of how to use Lunar astrology and the Lunar cycle to adapt and harmonize individual growth to successful living.
The Lunar Journal is published on the New Moon and Full Moon
The Lunar cycle is many things, it’s Lunar astrology, nature, numerology, energetics, evolution, and consciousness. The Lunar Journal focuses on the personal-growth and the self-realization aspects of the New Moon and Full Moon relationships.
Our Cancer New Moon represents a balancing point between the past and the future, and the opportunity for a new direction in life based on what inspires you. The New Moon follows last week’s summer solstice. This combination sets the stage for a shift in the overall astrological energies of the year. With this shift, we are all heading into an uncharted territory of new potential in which self-determination and the power of choice will be a premium quality to possess.
The June 21st solstice ushered in a heightened awareness of the importance of individuality, with the need to re-balance one’s relationship between selfhood and the larger collective. This quality of self-correction addresses the current cultural imbalances, setting to right the collective’s attempts to control our world by seizing and holding more power and influence than is warranted.
Our Gemini New Moon is bringing into play a new level of contrast, both personal and global, through the focus of opportunity, contrast and challenge. This is an extraordinary period of time. The potential challenges that lie ahead cannot be underestimated and may have unexpected impacts on our lives.
This Lunar cycle is an important time in which to discover a greater personal commitment to life. This new level of commitment includes your ability to focus on what, and where and with whom you’re willing to place your trust.
As individuals, we can off-set any unexpected events and disruptive influences by seeking supportive relationships and environments, especially those that reaffirm your individualized worth.
Our Scorpio Full Moon eclipse opens a portal that provides a unique opportunity to establish a higher level of emotional intelligence. These new qualities of emotional intelligence will enable you to adapt and respond to new situations in your life from a higher frequency of awareness.
During a Lunar eclipse, the shadow, or hidden aspect, of the Full Moon polarity is activated. This opens up a unique opportunity that functions much like a portal, allowing for a new quality of consciousness to emerge.
With this eclipse, the Taurus Sun brings the concrete experience of coming face-to-face with our circumstances. The Scorpio eclipse allows us to focus on the emotional intelligence needed to see beyond the shadows that are being activated. This includes personal shadows as well as the larger collective cultural shadows that are being activated globally.
Our Taurus New Moon is potent with new life. Here in the northern hemisphere, Nature has come alive with abundance and new growth. In the same way that our organic world is teeming with new life, consciousness itself is also being energized, especially through the discovery of what lies just beneath the surface of reality.
This Lunar cycle is having a direct impact on how our minds are able to step up and function at higher peak levels. Curiosity and the discovery of what was not known in the past will now be at the forefront of our experience. When the mind is able to discover new avenues of exploration, the world begins to feel more abundant in our personal circumstances.
Our Libra Full Moon is highlighting the ways in which we can more authentically participate in the world. Being authentic ultimately requires an individualized sense of self. This larger sense of self is a theme of the current lunar cycle that began with our Aries New Moon.
With the Libra Full Moon, a more objective realization can now be made that supports our growth as individuals. Learning to act as an authentic individual while seeing a larger perspective is what our Libra Moon is now providing for our growth.
Our Aries New Moon kicks off a new Lunar cycle as well as the new annual shift that comes with the passing of the spring equinox. Each year Aries marks a cosmic turning point within larger cosmic cycles. For this reason it is generally accepted as the beginning of the astrological year.
This is a time of new momentum. This is especially true now with our New Moon, as multiple cycles are overlapping. This convergence of energies provides a tremendous amount of new momentum which you can harness. This new Aries momentum can be experienced as an effortless flow, especially once you begin to feel the inspiration that Aries brings.
Our Virgo Full Moon opens up a new perspective of individual thinking that can warm your heart through personal awareness, the pursuit of self-knowledge, and the conquest of illusion.
It’s been two weeks since our Pisces New Moon, in which we collectively began experiencing a new direction for humanity. Since the inception of this massive new shift of consciousness worldwide, this big energy has triggered a new awareness of what’s occurring around us. This is especially true among those of us who are independent thinkers.
Our Pisces New Moon is initiating a huge change worldwide. What we are about to witness from this New Moon is an entirely new direction for humanity. This isn’t a time to listen to those who are parroting fear and doomsday rhetoric. It’s a time to appreciate just how big the shift is that’s taking place before our very eyes.
These energies are new. The cosmic energies that are coming into form will alter everything you know to be true. For this reason, the New Moon may be hard to understand, and hard to describe, simply because this IS new energy. It’s new and it’s also big. Even more, this new energy is being born out of old energy that is also very big and coming to a close.
Our Leo Full Moon occurs at the midpoint of a powerful Lunar cycle that began two weeks ago with our Aquarius New Moon. Through Leo, our halfway point is expressing the Aquarian energies that we have been describing over the past year.
Leo’s expressive nature is full of a multitude of inspiring potentials, especially when the individual has developed the necessary discipline to focus their attention in order to see their own individuated path forward.
Our Aquarius New Moon is bringing a heightened awareness of anticipation of what lies ahead. Our New Moon energies are activating a quality of forward thinking. This is building on the last several Lunar cycles which have increased our ability to feel the energies of the near future before it is yet manifest.
Along with this quality of forward thinking there’s also a sense of urgency that’s running like a silent undercurrent just below the surface of our consciousness. This urgency implies a new sense of our ability to feel the momentum of the changes that are coming.
Our Cancer Full Moon is energizing the possibility of facing a new direction in life. This new phase of momentum began 26 days ago with the Winter Solstice. Winter Solstice represents the beginning of a six month period of the increase of the light, and growing day-force. Over the past 26 days, inspiration has been building. With the Cancer Full Moon we have come to the point where we can now actually begin to feel this new direction in a “Cancerian” (feeling) way.
Our Capricorn New Moon is full of hope. This New Moon kicks off the New Year with a shift in awareness that’s inspiring and indicates there are good prospects ahead for all of us. This shift in awareness will most easily come through your ability to envision a new and positive turn of events.
The positive adjustments of the new Aquarian Age are enabling us to envision the future, including access to new solutions and new possibilities beyond what we have previously considered possible.
Our Gemini Full Moon is about discovering how your powerful personal choice can become to help you successfully navigate life, both personally and within the larger collective realm of circumstances.
Two weeks ago the Sagittarius Solar eclipse initiated a new Lunar cycle in which “The Wisdom in Seeing Past Patterns” (see article) emphasized the importance of taking off our blinders in order to clearly see the underlying patterns within events and activities that have occurred in our past. This ability to recognize our patterns (past karma) will enable us to make new choices.
Individual karma occurs whenever choices are made. Even when a choice isn’t made consciously, it’s still a choice. When we can develop a deeper understanding of how our past actions affect our present choices, we can liberate ourselves through the release of these unwanted patterns.
Our Sagittarius New Moon occurs with a Solar eclipse which allows each of us to understand the shadow patterns we hold within, especially those that relate to our current eclipse cycle. This solar eclipse will help you work with the universal principles within these patterns, and then use these new understandings to expand into a greater type of consciousness.
Our Taurus Full Moon opens an eclipse portal with the potential to change the way in which you see the world, especially through your relationship to all forms of perceived limitations. All of the ways in which we each create limits in our life will be directly challenged by our eclipse in Taurus.
This eclipse comes on the heels of our Scorpio New Moon, where our intense Scorpio energies, with the help of Uranus, have opened up new vistas of perception with new energies for Connecting the Unseen Dots of Life.
Our New Moon in Scorpio brings a deeper quality of intuitive awareness to the forefront of our consciousness. This is a high level of awareness we can each use to successfully traverse the complex social dynamics that are currently playing out for all of us.
As we all move forward from this particular New Moon, successful living will be dependent on our ability to connect the dots of perception in order to access what is occurring just below the surface and beneath the outer appearance of our external world.
Our Full Moon in Aires brings us face to face with the unseen forces within our reality. Our ability to see these unseen forces is energized by our Libra Sun which is in opposition to the Moon during the mid-point of our current Lunar cycle. It is at the Full Moon that our conscious realization begins to settle in to an understanding of what was introduced at the New Moon.
Our New Moon in Libra brings the energy of preparation to your daily routine. This is a time to relax, fortify, rejuvenate, and generally to prepare for what’s approaching. The theme of this article, taking advantage of the calm before the storm, is not meant to bring alarm or fear, but instead, an attitude of expectation and the corresponding practical activities one might engage in to prepare for the future.

Our New Moon in Virgo brings a new quality we’re calling the “nobility of quintessence.” This quality represents your ability to embody your pure essence and bring it into your everyday life.
The concept of quintessence we’ll be using in today’s article comes from the ancient philosophy of a spiritual consciousness or essence that permeates all of nature. This consciousness we call quintessence is the same intelligent essence that composes the celestial bodies. I like this traditional definition because of the spiritual connotation that connects personal astrology with the astrology of celestial bodies.
Our Full Moon in Aquarius is the second of two back-to-back Aquarius Full Moons. Our first Aquarius Full Moon was on July 23rd and indicated a major shift in how we perceive reality. Now the second Aquarius Full Moon is emphasizing these shifts by bringing awareness to what it means to express life authentically
Our New Moon in Leo is embodying a new and volatile quality of creative intensity. The degree of this intensity will affect you as an individual, as well as the entire planet.
This is energy that must be managed. Leo’s solar intensity can be full of light and inspired personal power, or it can be reckless and self serving. In the worst cases it can scorch the entire fabric of society with aggressive and overbearing creative power.
This Leo Lunar cycle holds both extremes and will undoubtedly have a major impact on humanity as a whole. Individually the creative use of our Leo New Moon energies will help you take whatever action is appropriate in your circumstances. For those working on a larger level, this cycle represents a critical time period that will allow you to tap into the magnitude of what’s occurring on our planet.
Our Full Moon in Aquarius is highlighting a new awareness of our shift into the Aquarian Age. This new Age that we are stepping into is beginning to change our individual concepts of reality and this Full Moon is facilitating that shift. The modern understanding of Aquarius, ruled by the planet Uranus, stems from the Uranian energies of independence, freedom and individuality. These are the qualities of Aquarius that will blossom into a new Age of collective cooperation, based on mutual respect and appreciation for individualized contribution.
Our New Moon in Cancer is focusing our attention on how we go about finding our place in the world.
In Cancer, there’s an underlying need to establish one’s identity as an independent and empathic individual. For this reason, our New Moon energies are ideal for expanding your sense of individuality and how that relates to your place in the world.
Our New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini marks a turning point in the ways in which we receive information, and then what we are able to do with that information once we get it. Whenever we encounter something new it challenges what we have known in the past. This experience of exposure to new information can be met with either excitement or resistance.
Our Full Moon eclipse in Sagittarius brings a particular quality of new insight to what it means to rise to the occasion. Most cultural references to this quality center on the idea of responsibility. However, this Lunar eclipse expands this idea of rising to the occasion to include new opportunities in your life that you may not have noticed or understood up until this eclipse cycle.
Our New Moon in Taurus brings the element of Earth alive within your consciousness. Taurus energizes the Earth element with the potency of value. A fundamental principle of Taurus is how potency energizes what has value and worth in your daily life.
Our Scorpio Full Moon is the halfway point of our Aries Lunar cycle. When the Full Moon is in Scorpio emotions can run high within the collective. Calmness is the antidote. The more individuated one has become, the less they will experience the emotional roller coaster that the Scorpio Moon has been known to trigger.

Our Libra Full Moon is part of a magnificent astrological kite pattern. This extraordinary planetary configuration takes the shape of a “kite” with key planets positioned to create the famous kite outline.
A kite pattern is a highly organized and harmonious pattern. When it occurs in a Full Moon chart it can signify a grounding energy that’s able to transcend your current circumstances. With the current Full Moon, our kite is directly activating a particular type of focus that’s needed in order to ground ourselves to something larger.
