First Full Moon of 2016: Full Moon in Leo/Wolf Moon

Welcome to the first Full Moon of 2016 which is exact on Saturday, January 23rd at 5:46pm PST, 8:46pm EST.  This Full Moon is known as the Wolf Moon and is in the sign of Leo; which from our view on Earth, is directly opposing the Aquarius Sun.  The names of each Full Moon date back to Native American tribes indigenous to the northern and eastern hemispheres of the United States.  These tribal cultures created specific symbols for each Full Moon to identify the different seasons and to express the spiritual essence and nature of each lunation cycle. 

The Wolf Moon was created as the snow gathered deep in the woods and the howling wolves were heard echoing throughout the forest.  This literal explanation paints a beautiful picture and still has powerful significance today.  It perfectly embodies the nature of the universal energy we are experiencing on a conscious level.  

Much like the totem of the wolf, it is time to fully embody our wild, sovereign nature and our innate instinctual wisdom.  I am channeling this Full Moon energy as an opportunity to individually step into power while simultaneously remembering and owning who you are.  This is not the realm of the ego, but rather it is remembering your essence and why you’re here.  This is ancient memory buried deep within, waiting patiently to be realized and to be of service.

A Full Moon is the time to step into the fullest expression of your raw, primal self.  It encourages us to embrace the most authentic aspects of our core and to show up wholly and completely.  Use this power with deliberate intention to transcend toward the highest vibrations of Spirit and your greatest good.  Now is the moment of truth; it is time to reclaim your power, shine your Divine light, own your true sovereign nature and share your gifts with the world.  Now is the time to empower your inner Queen or King and proudly allow that white light to emanate through you.

With the Mercury Retrograde/Pluto conjunction still in effect today, the archetype of the Wolf is powerfully significant.  This transformative aspect  aligned with the Full Wolf Moon calls on us to venture deep into our psyches to face the abyss of our fears. The wolf is the supreme hunter; fearless, swift, resilient and strong.  It is time we dive deep into our own dark forests, into the restrictive paradigms that are no longer serving us.  This transcendence of knowledge serves to empower and will inevitably help us gain better awareness to our true nature and potential.  We must finally face our fears so we can bravely move forward in our lives. 

Traditionally, wolves are known as great teachers and leaders. They love and fiercely protect their family and guard their young. They remain loyal and respect pack order and elders with great discipline.  Using their resources and instinctual nature, they rely on intelligence and intuition to adapt to even the harshest environments to ensure the pack will thrive.  These ideals perfectly describe the vision needed in order to properly manifest within the current Moon in Leo/Sun in Aquarius polarity.  In order to create and manifest, one must discover what is loved, embrace these unique gifts and then define where they belong.  Protect your dreams and vision with love.  Respect and honor your creative gifts and then propel them into the world from a place of authentic presence.   Now is the time to use this energy to fiercely nurture your goals to life.

This Full Wolf Moon gives us a chance to focus on balancing the masculine (Sun) and feminine (Moon) energies within us all on an individual and a collective level. As the Sun calls toward our will to create, manifest and push forward, please keep in mind the feminine energy of the Moon and it’s receptive, intuitive, and nurturing nature.  As we connect with the Great Mother and this Divine Feminine energy, we are accessing the frequency of unconditional love- something that is much needed at this time. There is a Father Sky/Mother Earth, Sun/Moon, assertive/receptive polarity within each of us and to understand, appreciate and integrate these energies is to truly evolve and transcend.  

Although the ancient wisdom of lunar cycles and how they relate to our bodies, our experience and our consciousness has been a lost language for some time, I believe it is imperative to bring this information back.  Rediscovering  the patterns of the cosmos and then synergistically relating them to the internal cycle within will bring a better balance to the ego and into the patriarchal society in which we live.  Each lunation cycle not only uncovers the intricate patterns of the Universe, but it also reveals the secrets which lie within.

At our core, our DNA understands we are lunar rhythmic. We must reclaim and uncover this ancient knowledge and begin to embrace it again.  We need to rediscover and reactivate these codes of light that have been dormant within our DNA for thousands of years.  

God has designed our bodies with an intricate rhythm.  As you begin to embrace this aspect of yourself, you will find better balance and regain better overall health.  As a greater appreciation for this symphonic rhythm grows, a deeper compassion and stronger love for yourself and for others will be nourished.  Embracing and celebrating the Divine Feminine and each lunar cycle is to embrace and celebrate the primal wisdom of creation; and this wisdom is within each and everyone one of us.   

 

Star Date: Tuesday, June 2 2015: Full Moon in Sagittarius

✨Star Date✨ Tues, June 2nd: Full Moon in Sagittarius

Just as the Moon’s gravitational force has the power to affect the world’s tides, our bodies are comprised of 70 percent water and are also affected by the Moon’s phases, transits and the eclipses. In many ancient cultures and Native American traditions, a woman’s cycle was referred to as her “Moon” and was revered as a profoundly powerful and spiritual time where she would separate from her village and fully embrace her divine feminine spirit by performing ceremonies and rituals with other women on their cycle. Perhaps most fascinating of all, is that many tribes believed women were more energetically and spiritually powerful during their menstrual cycle known as her Moon, and that they even had special intuitive powers. Women on their Moon would be called upon by Native American tribe members for their advice, insight and guidance, or to connect them to higher powers.

A Full Moon in Sagittarius is generally a time for optimism and change, but with this Full Moon opposing our Sun in Gemini at 9:19 PST, and other cosmic influences in the mix such as the wide conjunctions with Retrograde Mercury and Mars in Gemini squaring Neptune in Pisces, now seems to be a better time for quiet introspection and self examination. Today, try to avoid the temptation to overindulge and express emotions and ideas that are more rooted in grandiose fantasy rather than reality.

The days before, during and after a Full Moon are the perfect time for a cleanse, especially because Sagittarian energy rules great wisdom and the evolution of our beliefs and ideals. Cleansing your body by avoiding fatty and processed foods today, releasing old paradigms that no longer serve you by clearing energy in your mind and/or spirit and performing an energy clearing ceremony in your home with prayers and Saging can be extremely effective at this time.

Wishing many beautiful Full Moon blessings to you all on this lovely day and as always, sending lots of love and positive energy your way ❤️

Full Moon in Scorpio: Wednesday, May 14th 2014

 

The Full Moon is exact at 23 degrees Scorpio and occurs Wednesday, May 14th at 12:16 PDT/3:16 EDT and 7:16 GMT.

A Full Moon is the lunar phase that occurs when the Moon is completely illuminated by the Sun as seen from our view on earth.  In Astrology, a Full Moon phase suggests something within the subconscious (the Moon) becomes illuminated into the conscious awareness (the Sun).

Wednesday’s Full Moon in Scorpio highlights the deep, intense and transformational energy which has been quite the focus as of late, especially after the recent Lunar and Solar Eclipses and the Cardinal Grand Cross of April.  Scorpio energy is of the water element and is fixed in nature, and expresses its need for depth and transformation through intimacy and emotional truths.  As with all Full Moon phases, it is an extremely intense and emotional time for us all.  Whenever Scorpio energy is involved, it encourages us to dig even deeper and further under the surface, into the shadows of our subconscious and our emotions, to inspire and ignite a necessary change.

The Sun in Taurus is now in direct opposition with the Moon in Scorpio.  This suggests we are in a struggle with how we value ourselves and our perception of how others value us.  It is a power struggle between our higher spiritual selves and the material values and perceptions of the outside world.  Don’t fall victim to the boundaries and expectations of others or the illusions these perceptions create in our minds.  It is time to figure out what actions and thought patterns aren’t working in our lives and to face them head on.  It’s time to fully examine all the  “teddy bears” we are still holding on to that are in reality holding us back.  Let it all go.  Refuse to allow anything to take up energy or space in your consciousness unless it is divinely aligned with what you value at your core and hold true in your heart.  Now is the time to dive deep beneath the surface to determine what truly matters to you, to prioritize how you really feel and take that wisdom to transcend to new heights.

Recognizing self sabotaging behaviors and breaking free from old paradigms of thought takes perseverance and is the most significant catalyst toward moving forward with a brave heart.  It takes wisdom to know what needs to be changed, and raw, deliberate courage to integrate it into your conscious awareness and make change happen.  Courage is everything now, as you move deeper into faith, and further commit to surrendering to inner truth.   Now is the time for new values and new ways of life.  Challenge yourself to fully examine what is bringing you down and renounce it completely at the core of your being.  Extract the truth and allow it to rise up through your emotions, just like the Phoenix rising from the ashes.  Remain in gratitude for the lessons learned and take ownership of your part of it, then allow yourself to detach and consciously take action to shift things into a higher frequency.  There is so much great potential for renewal, rebirth and the reemergence of a new, higher vibrational self after such a deep purge.  Although it may not always seem apparent, the truth is forever lying underneath it all.
