Our Virgo New Moon astrology brings a calming quality of energy, but this calm will only be available to those who are able to live their lives centered amidst the changes and potential chaos taking place all around.
While the New Moon chart indicates the potential for further activations of conflict and contrast, it also clearly indicates the potential to transcend these conflicts into a personal experience of harmony and inner calm. This quality of inner calm in the midst of external intensity is very much akin to finding one’s still center at the eye of a storm. If you’re able to move your focus away from the chaos of external events, you can find inner calm through alignment with the spiritual principles of love and higher will.
This year’s Pisces Full Moon follows a powerful Solar eclipse. As we move forward from the eclipse, the Full Moon’s illumination will provide awareness and guidance to help each of us integrate the activations and new potentials we are receiving.
We are moving into a new era of expanded consciousness. What was activated through the shadow of the Solar eclipse was a new ability to access inner light. We now have a deeper ability to work at soul level in conjunction with our higher self. Despite the chaos in the world around us, these new connections enable us to move forward with understanding, compassion, and love.
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
The upcoming Aquarius Lunar Eclipse holds a spectacular signature that has attracted a lot of astrological attention. My personal excitement around the event is centered on a new ability that the eclipse is introducing to everyone on the planet.
At the precise moment of each Lunar Eclipse, when the Moon briefly loses contact with the Sun, a cosmic doorway opens in the zodiac. Through this portal we receive a new awareness, ability, and insight to be used for inspired action. This new ability transcends the normal experiences of space/time reality and enables us to take quantum leaps forward, both personally and as a cultural collective. The current eclipse portal will remain open and active for the coming 27 days, until September 3 when the Moon returns to this location in the zodiac during the next lunar cycle.
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. The New Moon themes over the past several months have described a coherent story of expansion, including new abilities and awareness that is leading humanity to a new and previously unknown territory of experience.
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.
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
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.
What is Lunar Astrology?
Lunar astrology is the study of the eight phases of the Sun/Moon relationship in the monthly lunar cycle.
Each New Moon there is a release of cosmic energy to the Earth. This new energy transforms life and consciousness through eight phases of development.
What is The Lunar Journal?
The Lunar Journal follows the lunar cycle. This bi-monthly astrology publication maps personal success to lunar astrology and the lunar cycle.
The Sun and the Moon work in harmony to energize all new successful growth. The Sun provides the energy, while the Moon supports integration through natural processes of time.
The Lunar Journal helps you connect to these potentials in your daily life.
The Lunar Cycle
The lunar cycle is divided into four quarters. The Moon travels through these quarters during its orbit around the Earth. The Moon’s movement consists of the following quarters, each representing 90°.
- New Quarter
- First Quarter
- Full Quarter
- Last Quarter
In addition to the four quarters, the Moon also presents in eight lunation phases as the result of the Sun and Moon working together.
The truest meaning of the Moon in any astrology chart takes into consideration the significance of the Sun/Moon phase. For example, to fully understand the success and growth dynamics of an individual we use both the lunar cycle and the eight phases of the Moon.
The Eight Lunar Phases
The New Phase
The 1st phase of the cycle releases a new pattern with the momentum and zest to discover its potential. Each New Moon is unique and follows an organic and instinctual pattern of growth.
The Crescent Phase
In the 2nd phase the original momentum begins to slow, with a natural willingness to overcome any obstacle that is in the way. A spontaneous approach with small successful steps ensures steady and continued growth.
The First Quarter Phase
The 3rd phase is critical to the quality of growth throughout the remaining cycle. Practical and decisive activity is critical in establishing the best outcome or direction forward. Choices and circumstances will shape the individual character, determining what and how life unfolds.
The Gibbous Phase
The 4th phase is creatively in sync with the rational and analytical processes of making adjustments. Aligning with the intelligent design of Nature allows inquisitiveness to become one’s teacher of success. This phase prepares for the coming shift in consciousness and the realization of purpose.
The Full Phase
The 5th phase activates a new level of awareness with the realization, or full picture, of the purpose of what was originally released at the beginning of the cycle. Objectivity and clarity are in full operation. There is an understanding of what must be done to successfully relate circumstances to personal potential.
The Disseminating Phase
The 6th phase consciously expands one’s individual awareness to include more of the world around them. Past learning, including experiences and challenges that were overcome, become markers of success to be shared. Common experiences then unite like minds to participate and share in a larger process, expanding one’s success to include others.
The Last Quarter Phase
The 7th phase is critical to the development of consciousness. It supports mature thinking, where the bigger picture of life is firmly grasped. There is a great power that lies within the choice to change one’s own perspective. The quickness of an individualized mind understands the ways that growth and success have been conditioned by society. Changing one’s perspective has the power to change one’s reality.
The Balsamic Phase
The 8th phase brings to conclusion the current growth cycle. The potential of what was originally released has now reached its pinnacle and all that’s left is the future. At this phase, each cycle incorporates its success, growth, and understanding into the seed of the cycle to come.
This final phase is full of hope and new potential. It inspires forward thinking. Letting go of past failures allows for unfettered momentum to nourish the soul that desires growth.
