sagittarius new moon

Simone Butler at Mooncircles

“The year that’s wrapping up has been a confusing and frustrating one for many of us. Yet since Jupiter entered its own sign of Sagittarius early last month, hope is on the horizon. Not necessarily in terms of external matters – although they may well improve, especially in the sector of your chart that Jupiter triggers – but in terms of altered perceptions and inspiration leading to new ways of thinking and acting.
An auspicious New Moon arrives this week, urging us to get out into nature and celebrate life. But it’s also important to examine the choices we’re making. Are they thoughtful and inclusive? Or born of unconscious pain or fear? This is the looming question at the Sagittarius New Moon (Dec. 6, 11:20 p.m. PST), which squares Mars and Neptune in blurry Pisces.  Sagittarius wants truth, freedom and progress – while action-oriented Mars, in communion with watery Neptune, tends to  act impulsively, without all the facts.  This can lead to a battle of wills over who is right, or becoming lost in the fog and making wrong turns. But it’s also a wonderful time to harness Neptune’s compassionate side and work on behalf of those less fortunate. If in doubt, take that proverbial walk around the lake and let your inner guidance inform you before you take action.”

“We step out onto the precipice at this New Moon. Where you feel trapped, you will find yourself yearning to wriggle free. But you don’t have to firebomb your entire life and start over. For most of us, it will be enough to approach the ticking time bombs in our lives cautiously and disarm them with quiet disclosures to the right people and a step, however tentative, in another direction. Ask: Where can you be more truthful, to yourself and to others? What are the secrets and fears that are preventing you from living authentically?
The one thing you can’t do is ignore the untamed animal within you that demands adventure and freedom. If you tie it up too tightly, it will simply bide its time until one day, a door will be left open or a loose screen can be pried away just enough so that you are able to escape. If that time has come, and you are on the verge of throwing away something very important, just be absolutely certain that there is no other choice. Some words can’t be taken back. Some actions are irrevocable. There are things out there that can bite you—and some cats don’t make it back home.”

“This year’s boisterous New Moon in Sagittarius promises high energy, high spirits and high hopes. What will they inspire us to do… It’s the time of the season to reach, run, jump, explore and fly. To spend hours philosophizing over coffee or beer (or debating/ arguing online). To indulge and gamble and laugh – especially when we tumble and end up on our backsides.”

“There are many moving parts right now as our worlds are being recreated and renewed.
Sagittarius New Moon coupled with Mercury going Direct is unleashing an inspired energetic stream moving us toward liberation as we long to explore new pathways and new avenues.
The energy is exciting, fiery and inspired, wanting to dismantle and begin anew. But we must be mindful in harnessing this energy and take caution against going too far into extremes.
Rather than getting carried away, we can harness this deepening force asking us to face and creatively engage in the transformation afoot. 
For on the deepest level, it is calling us to rise and meet our own deepest needs and longings.
We are responsible for our own happiness and so rather than looking outside, we need to turn inward and ask ourselves, what will ultimately feed and nurture our Soul and what can we do to shift into that alignment?”

full moon in gemini

Set aside some special time during this full moon to envision your future. It’s the perfect time to plant seeds that you want to grow, so be brave enough to ask for exactly what you want. Say it out loud! 

From Astrology Hub

The Gemini vibe is at its rawest, with the Moon occurring at the very beginning of the sign. Arik Xander parses the Moon’s position at 0 Gemini:

“A zero degree represents the deepest, or seed level energy of the outcome. Like a real seed, it contains the entire tree. The only thing that keeps us from seeing the tree is time. With time, and supportive circumstances, the tree will mature, providing shelter, nourishment, and shade for those who need it.

“The Full Moon represents a time when we can remove obstacles that may have arisen since the New Moon. When the Full Moon occurs at the seed level of a sign, we are presented with a remarkable opportunity to remove future obstacles that may arise in regards to the [sign]the Full Moon occurs in.”

“For the Moon, in the first degree of Gemini, we find, “A glass-bottom boat in still water,” an apt symbol for the Mercury Retrograde period with strong Neptune, when we are encouraged to look deeply inside ourselves to observe the strange creatures on display within us. Jones references one’s “alertness to every ramification of experience open to him [or her] and of the necessity that one take definite action on his [or her] own account in order to capitalize on any particular opportunity.” Indeed we must all recognize that every experience of life and living, when we look at it right, is productive of an endless stream of possibilities for ourselves, and for coming to a greater understanding of our purpose in being here at this particular moment of history.”

From Mystic Mamma

“We, each in our own ways, have been moving through trying times. 
This Scorpio cycle has been teaching us of the power of regeneration, and our ability to go through the fire and literally rise from the ashes like the phoenix transformed.
Pat Liles says that during this current Mercury RX Period, “we are drawn to the internal spiritual journey, the inner trails of growth to renew our inspiration.” 
With this Gemini Full Moon, we have the opportunity to see things from multiple perspectives and gleam ideas of what could be possible.
We must dream the new.”

the beginnings of a podcast

Last night I recorded a voice note instead of video on a whim and decided to make it a thing. I created a SoundCloud profile and will be uploading my thoughts every Sunday, and more often, depending on what’s going on.

I’m excited to try out a new platform and hope this can be a way to better explain some things that are hard to write about (without the pressure of being on camera lol). Anyways, I hope that this will be a helpful new offering and I would love your feedback or suggestions for topics. 

Hopefully this leads to me finally creating some sort of podcast. Click to play
