pisces new moon đźŚ‘

Pisces season is almost over, which I’m real sad about because it’s my favorite time of year. I love daydreaming and feeling st home with the energy around me… it’s been nice to go inside and retreat for the past month. BUT, I’m ready to emerge! I’m ready for what’s next! I’m ready for Aries season to light a fire under my ass to get the motion moving and turn my daydreams into reality.

I always love taking the time to set intentions and sit with the new Moon, but I’m extra excited for all the seeds that I’m planting this for this lunation cycle! The fog is finally clearing and I’m starting to see what the path ahead looks like… and where I would like to end up. I have a lot of big plans in store!

I can’t spill all the beans right now, but some of the things I’m working on are getting more videos out and really diving deeper in to my creative spaces. I’m listening to my intuition instead of all the noise around me and have had quite a few aha moments.

Healing and letting go has been a large part of creating more energy to use in other areas of my life. When I can free up energy from feeding into old patterns and reactions and judgements and just allow what is to be, Ive found peace in even the most stressful situations this month. The other day my friend was like “Yo, are you alright? Because if it was me I would be freaking out right now.”

I want to take full credit and say that I’ve finally arrived at stillness (LOL I don’t think that’s a possible state to maintain forever in this world) and I know I have some hurt emotions I haven’t processed… but I’m good. I don’t even understand fully why I’m not mad or whatever… but I’m not. And everything I’ve been reading has just given me more hope and assurance that everything is ok.

So what seeds are you going to plant during this dark and fertile time?

From Kathy Biel at Astrology Hub

“Feeling sensitive? Awash in other people’s stuff? Just plain feeling?

You’re under the influence of the Mar. 17 Pisces New Moon.

The Pisces New Moon launches the last lunar cycle before the Spring Equinox, Mar. 20. What might we create, in the season’s final days?

We’re not likely to float or wallow. My forecast explains:

“The Pisces New Moon is the switch into awareness of (and escalating) discomfort, just before release. … It’s productive, motivating and potentially profoundly healing. And it comes with a kick that sets off the exploding life force of the spring.

New Moons bring fresh starts, and new life… It’s the wet, soggy ground hiding the seeds magically germinating new life.”

From Mystic Mamma

*NEW MOON* in Pisces on March 17th is being called a healing Moon, for it will reveal much that is needing to be healed.
With a lot of fiery energy in the air, it’s vital to take deep breaths, slow down and take time to turn inward for reflection and revelation.
These seas must be traversed with much compassion for self and other.
This current passage has the potential to bring about a great healing, as we feel and address the spaces that have been stirring deep pain for us.
We have an opportunity to become more aware in the midst, opening our hearts and our perceptions.
We are all in the ongoing process of personal and collective evolution, and everyday we are being challenged to surrender the choices that bind and open up to new way, while holding ourselves and others ever so gently.”

From Henry Seltzer at Astrograph

Saturday’s New Moon has some very interesting astrological features, all pointing to it’s being time to begin doing some serious interior work. For one thing, this New Moon takes place in inner-oriented Pisces, and square to Mars in the last degree of Sagittarius, just before Mars enters Capricorn that same morning. This implies studied activity in pursuit of spiritual goals. The Sun and Moon of this New Moon are also found in close aspect to startling and revelatory Uranus, plus in conjunction there in Pisces with Chiron, the Wounded Healer, which speaks to the concept of unearthing old trauma for the purpose of moving beyond it.
Finally, the new planet Eris, representing a Feminine Warrior energy in support of soul intention, is extremely activated in this timing also, being closely aspected by retrograde Jupiter in Scorpio to within a minute of a degree. This brings out the urgent desire to make something concretely happen in your life that is consistent with your deep-seated goals. All in all, you are being enjoined by the Universe to take a stand for yourself by coming to a more complete understanding of who you truly are, inside and out, and by better navigating the persistent presence in your life of ancient wounding, which until you can get a handle on can be crippling and disruptive to your natural arc of development.

march madness 🌙

Spring is coming!

There is so much awesome energy on the way to help us continue our transformation into the best us we can be. I’m so excited to continue exploring and working with all the fresh magic I can feel, just in time for Spring.

Here are some of my favorite forecasts for what we can expect during March 🙂


Jessica Lanyadoo for The Hoodwitch

“There’s so much going on this week that it’s important to remember to breathe. The bottom line is that life is not a collection of details – it’s the whole picture. You may be having a rough time now, but that doesn’t mean that you will tomorrow. If you find that you’re losing perspective, take a step back and take a moment to get present. You don’t need to be perfect, you only need to be whole. You don’t need to know what’s coming next, you only need to do your best in the here and now.
On the 1st we have a fertile Full Moon in Virgo at 4:51pmPST. What are you willing to let go of in order to make room for something better? The Sun is in idealistic Pisces, while the Moon is in boots-on-the-ground Virgo. It’s time to pour your heart and efforts into what you love. How can you love what you have to do, even when it’s a boner? This is a period to explore the idea of perfection; what is it, really? Find it in the mundane, in the profane, in the weeds, and in the valleys. Perfection is right here, right now because the present moment could be no other way than as it is. Perfection requires presence and acceptance – not an OCD attention to purity but an embracing of this moment – the good, the bad, and the ugly of it.
Let go of distractions, and be here for the beauty of what is. Gear your actions in service to what you can help improve. This isn’t the time to lament what could’ve or should’ve been. Deal directly with what is, and try to let go of what doesn’t serve that purpose.”

Leslie Benson for Astrograph

“The Full Moon in Virgo, opposite the Sun, still swimming through Pisces, brings our awareness to the processes of purification, our orientation in tending to life’s nitty gritty details, and the polarity (or perhaps paradox) of mundane life amidst the Great Mystery of our existence. Virgo is a mutable earth sign, and Pisces is a mutable water sign, so when the Full Moon falls on this axis there is an opportunity both for being open to the possibility and opportunities for change, yet also attempting to stabilize amidst the topsy-turvy feelings that can come up when things are too much in flux. Add to that a whopping dose of Neptune (located in the sign of his rulership in Pisces, plus conjunct AND parallel the Sun) and we have ourselves a vast, numinous, and oceanic atmosphere for this Full Moontime. Neptune’s wisdom helps us see into the ethers, opening our perception to just how gorgeously magnificent and miraculous our universe – and our place within it – can truly be. This opening and expansion in awareness can also sometimes create a state of confusion or feeling lost at sea, especially when that larger than life energy comes into contact with areas in our psyche or system which are, for whatever reason, resistant or contracted against full acceptance of Universal Love.” 


Kathy Biel for Astrology Hub

“Longing for sanity? Solid ground? This year’s Virgo Full Moon on March 1/2, 2018 has your fix.
It’s powering up our abilities to analyze, communicate and problem solve, even as emotional high tides crest.
Welcome possibilities all, as we emerge from recent eclipses into a Pisces-dominated sky.
The Moon is beaming down anchors – or life preservers – as we float on the sea of life. Or flounder, as it’s felt for some of us lately.
Don’t expect a smooth ride, though. This Full Moon teems with factors that could cloud and complicate perceptions and actions. … All this water is linking us effortlessly. Connecting is deep, profound, candid and revealing. Granted, fears can bubble up through that link to infect relationships, but so can intense feelings that you may not have allowed yourself to acknowledge.”

Pat Lilies for Mystic Mamma

“If your mind and head talk are holding you at arms length from self acceptance of all that you are, take up Jupiter’s offer to free you from the psychological skeletons that you are dragging into the arena of new opportunities. 
“With so much Piscean support, Mercury can help you surrender mentally and use your feminine, water nature to guide you into union with that which is greater than self. 
“One teaching indigenous people embody and share in their rituals and daily lives is the ability to turn over guilt, burdens and sufferings to higher power ~ a profound and simple act that western cultures seem to lack and therefore, unnecessarily carry physical, mental and emotional loads in their daily lives. 
“Use this Full Moon to surrender your heart, your mind, your burdens to Great Spirit, Mother Earth, Father Sky. 
“Your task is not guilt or suffering, but gratitude.”

happy new moon in capricorn!

It’s the first new moon of 2018! I can’t believe it’s here already. Time has been doing that weird slow, but fast thing for me lately… so I’m excited to have a new moon grounded in the earth energy of Capricorn. These past few weeks I’ve been overwhelmed, with a huge list, and so many demands on my plate it seems like I’m being pulled in a million different directions at once.

After a slight meltdown on Sunday, I finally slowed down and listened to my body telling me to focus on what is important. Sometimes it’s hard to know just what that is because there are so many people telling us what THEY think it should be. The mini meltdown was me calling myself back into alignment with what I know that I should be doing.

This time of year is always crazy for me, but now that I’m back on track and have set achievable goals I’m feeling confident again. Progress is being made! Even if it’s just baby steps toward my ultimate goals. Who was it that said in order to get somewhere you have to take the first step? A lot of first steps have been taken lately and I’m going to pat myself  on the back for that. Slow and steady wins the race, right?

From Mystic Mamma

*NEW MOON* in Capricorn is calling us to rise from within and move forward with our deepest Knowing. 
We began the year coming to terms with what is no longer working and what needs to be let go of and now it’s time to move onward and trust in the unknown journey that awaits.  
The beauty is we can choose to learn from our past and use our experiences as the fertile soil that will one day shoot new sprouts. Just as the dandelion seeds are carried in the wind to new ground, so we are held in the great continuum of life as it unfolds.”

From the Hoodwitch

“Today’s new moon is in the Earthy cardinal sign of Capricorn the goat. New Moon’s magick is beneficial in helping to plant the “seeds” (intentions + goals) so to speak. Watch your “seeds” sown at the dark moon grow by asking to be supported in getting your new projects off the ground. From now until the time of the full moon is the time for culmination. Use the energy of Capricorn moon to stabilize your foundation materially. Capricorn New Moon concerns leadership, issues of security, and responsibility, it’s time to take care of business!”

From Henry Seltzer at Astrograph

“Tuesday’s Capricorn New Moon focuses a great deal of earth energy, with a Capricorn line-up of six planets, including Saturn,  Sun, Moon and Pluto. The outer planet aspects are also quite telling, with the New Moon in semi-square to Neptune, and in square to Uranus, with Mars in partile (or same-degree) aspect to Uranus as well, while Jupiter makes an extremely close sextile to Pluto. The outer planets take us right out of our narrow view of life in the physical, so that we will want to be alert for this now and over the next thirty days. Uranus, the Trickster, and the Awakener, by a process of surprise enlightenment and meaningful synchronicity opens us up to other-dimensional realities. Neptune allows us to drift away from the material plane entirely, functioning through dreams, poetry, and music to bring these other and more hidden realms to active presence within our very souls, while Pluto in Capricorn nudges us toward total transformation in our lives including our involvement with the mundane world of “getting and spending,” as poet William Wordsworth put it years ago, when the dawning of the nineteenth century highlighted the drama of our over-inundation with the material world.”

From  Kathy Biehl at Astrology Hub

“Resolutions be gone! The first New Moon of the year on Jan. 16/17 is instead turning thoughts and hearts to goals. In down-to-earth Capricorn, it’s calling for concrete, practical, achievable, meaningful goals. And work.
Sound boring? Hardly.
“This New Moon is exciting and generates a sizzling aura that is constantly on the verge of discovering something novel and unique.”

sag new moon

From Kathy Biel at Astrology Hub

“This year’s Sagittarius New Moon on Dec. 17/18 has traits that ordinarily don’t surface till New Year’s Eve.

It brings awareness of time passing and chapters ending, even as it orients us to the future. It stirs optimism and possibility in the midst of somberness.  And instead of resolutions, it encourages making concrete wishes that stand a very real chance of manifesting.

It’s equal turns philosophical, serious, retrospective, optimistic and gung-ho for love and money. All of that is imposing, purposeful and larger than life, almost as if the proceedings are expanding across all time/space. Which they might be, given that the Moon is directly at the Galactic Center.”

From Henry Seltzer at Astrograph

“With Mercury in retrograde, this continues to be, of course, an entirely introspective period of time throughout December. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon may serve to aid us in our process of self-discovery. This is, for the Sun and Moon in the 27th degree of Sagittarius, “A sculptor,” which reminds us that we are continually, out of the materials which come to hand, forging our own character. Marc Edmund Jones refers to “creative ability as the manifestation of self-consciousness in its maturity of realization,” and “the enlarged horizons which follow from an individual’s mastery of their own particular talents.” Indeed, it is up to each of us to unstintingly try to fashion the very best version of ourselves that we can achieve, knowing in our hearts that only this will truly satisfy us for the sake of the future.”

From the Hoodwitch

“There is a proclivity now towards open and honest exchanges, and seeing things from a more idealistic viewpoint.  Now is a great time to rid  yourself of any meanness, pettiness, or unresolved dramas. Let go of these types of misunderstandings as we now  have the opportunity to create some major transformation, and healing. The Archer  helps  us aim and shoot toward our goals,  but we must be open and receptive to it’s potent energy. With 2018 just around the corner, now is the time to  benefit from forward moving, growth, and expansion. Allow the fires of the Sagittarius  new moon to burn through any and all obstacles/ barriers. The arrow of the archer is in our hands,  be sure to choose it’s direction carefully.”

hope is finally here!

Instead of forcing myself to be productive today, I let myself rest. I took a hot shower and then snuggled in my bed all day drifting in and out of dreamland. It was wonderful.

I decided this week that I would practice being and integrating instead of continually pushing myself to check things off on my to do list. Usually I don’t give myself time to process and just jump ahead to the next task… but I started to realize how unhealthy this is. Resiliency can be a blessing and a curse.

Then I read The Hoodwitch’s Witch Tips & Horoscopes for this week and the questions I had been asking myself were answered. Isn’t it funny how that happens?

I hope you can feel the change in the air too! I finally feel free to follow my dreams even though I don’t know where that will lead. Being able to progress forward without the pressure of everything coming out perfect is exactly what I needed!

astrology stuff…

Everything around me has been feeling so weird lately. Hazy or maybe just hard to understand. Like there’s not bottom to it…

anyways, here are some articles I’ve been reading to try and find some clarity.

A Last Quarter Moon of Shedding Layers & Brilliant Potential 

The Last Quarter Moon of November 10, 2017 in the sign of Leo speaks to us of letting go of illusions. This lunar phase is always symbolic of the time period in the growing season after the harvest when the leaves start to whither and return to the earth. This is the time after the Moon’s reflective light has culminated in the sky at the Full Moon, halfway to its return to the darkest part of the lunar cycle. In this case the symbolism points to disillusionment with what was once tacitly accepted, also therefore of the necessity of negotiating what arises in the face of hidden truths being revealed. As masks, and layers of inauthentic self, become peeled away, we are asked to let go of what no longer serves to make space for a more conscious, intentional experiences of ourselves and of reality. This is also a chime with the Libra Equinox, which we just experienced a few weeks ago, and so doubly we may turn our attention to gentle darkness, coming into a greater degree of rest, reflective contemplation, and inner work.
