The Multidimensional Shift Has Definitely Occurred — Libra Full Moon Astrology Report Apr 5, 2023

Our Libra Full Moon comes only 13 days after Pluto has entered Aquarius. To take advantage of this powerful transition, we must take some time to re-orient ourselves. Something definitely feels different. This is a good time to ask yourself: What is going on? What feels different? What’s happening?

Things have definitely changed in our world. This massive shift is occurring all around us. We can best understand this shift if we approach it from a multidimensional perspective. We are gaining access to new intuitive perceptions beyond the material world of our five senses. Becoming multidimensional means receiving an increased awareness of our innate capabilities, with far less limitations than we have been told we possess. This not only includes intuitive awareness, but less restrictions from the limits of time and space. You are not alone in this expansion. This new faculty of expanded awareness is being experienced by more and more individuals all the time.

Let’s take a look at these changes and explore the bigger picture of what’s taking place so that we can openly and joyfully meet the new Aquarian Age paradigm.

Making Decisions that Protect Your Personal Integrity — Pisces New Moon Astrology Feb 19, 2023

With our Pisces New Moon comes a powerful initiation into a new level of self-protection through a new decision-making process. Our Sun/Moon conjunction is triggering a new level of creative discontent that will no longer tolerate the attempts of others to make life-changing decisions for us.

The way in which each of us makes decisions is directly being challenged with our Pisces lunar cycle. In Pisces, personal integrity is directly related to the ability to make decisions that are truly our own. This is in contrast to the awareness of decisions we have made that aren’t in alignment with our own best interest, or worse yet, decisions that are made by other people.

Many of us have recently witnessed more aggressive social and economic elements that appear to be designed to undermine our individual integrity and our ability to make our own decisions.

The Exhilarating Spark of Freedom — Full Moon Astrology Report Jan 6, 2023

Our Cancer Full Moon holds a feeling of exhilaration and freedom. This feeling is in direct contrast to anything that feels restrictive or suppressive. These feelings of exhilaration and freedom are especially true for those of us who have begun the individuation process.

With the advent of our Full Moon, the urge toward experiencing a greater amount of freedom in our lives has never been more important. This feeling or urge to experience less restriction is a direct result of the new Aquarian Age energies we are all currently experiencing.

The Wise Use of Personal Power — New Moon Astrology Report Dec 23, 2022

Our Capricorn New Moon involves a tangible shift in power, both personally and within the larger collective. This Moon marks a pivotal point within the much larger Capricorn cycle of energy that has been at play for several years.

It will officially conclude next year when Pluto leaves the sign of Capricorn, beginning on the 23rd of March.

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.
