New Moon in Aries, April 15th 2018
We have a refreshing New Moon ahead of us because Mercury goes Direct! Bringing in a new wave of energy, vitality, and a breath of fresh air! The new moon is in Aries once again giving us a redo, if you will! If you feel you couldn't stay on track with your intentions last cycle because of the retrograde now is your chance to make up for it.
Depending on your time zone, you may experience the new moon on Sunday April 15th or early Monday April 16th. We always encourage everyone to have a moon app on their phone with your exact location to be the most accurate for you!
The card pulled for this New Moon is Focus! With the directness and winds of Mercury igniting the fire of Aries, now is the time to hone in on what you truly desire and want for this cycle. Don't let your energy become scattered, but stay sharp and focus on your goals. This would be a great time to do some candle magic! Write your intention on a candle and then light this candle meditating and invoking the energy you wish to create and manifest. Keep your gaze soft on the flame and let it take you to a different Realm. Let the candle burn all the way down, but not unattended. Fire demands devotion, much like your goals. You may be surprised by the messages you'll receive if you try this!
First Quarter Moon in Cancer/Leo, April 22nd 2018
The First Quarter Moon will fall in Cancer or Leo depending on your location and time zone once again. This cusp energy of water and fire is very potent this moon cycle. The combination of water and fire can be very mystical and powerful, but it can also cause adrenal burnout, aggression, and bring unresolved issues to the surface. Tend to your water body AKA your emotions, and tend to your fire body AKA your passions and spirit. First Quarter Moons are a great time to check in with yourself, so make any necessary adjustments you need to find your own unique balance.
The card pulled for this moon phase is the Seed Moon: New Growth. Once again we are being reminded of the seeds and intentions we have planted, but maybe they have not have had enough time or nourishment to have sprouted yet. Now is the opportunity to devote your energy to them when you couldn't during the retrograde. Things are shifting and falling more into alignment this time around, so take the opportunity to make a decisive action towards your goals and desires. What is your next step?
Full Moon in Scorpio April 29th 2018
A Scorpio Full Moon can be potent with magic and power! You may feel more sensual and in your body, fully embodying your emotions and your passions, since Scorpio is ruled by fiery Mars in traditional astrology. Passions and emotions can be powerful allies working together towards your desires. This would be a perfect time to do some sort of spell work embracing your magic, embracing your desires, and working with your power! You are a powerful being and the Scorpio Full Moon wants you to remember that!
The card pulled for this Full Moon is the Harvest Moon: Gratitude. In the Southern Hemisphere, it is Autumn and this is a time of releasing and letting go and remember what has brought us here to this very moment. No matter what season, gratitude moves us all. Remember when you do spell work, though we are asking the elements, our higher selves, and the Universe to help us move towards our desires, we must remember to do so with respect and humbleness and gratitude. Create an offering from your heart. And offering is an act of love and devotion and balances the energy of giving and receiving. Remember to be grateful for what you have in your life already, and act from this place of thankfulness.
Last Quarter Moon in Aquarius, May 7th 2018
As the moon cycle begins to wane, Aquarius energy can lend us a new perspective as things are shifting and changing and we must learn to adapt to these changes. What did you learn about your desires this moon cycle? What did you learn about your magic and power? Is your heart open? How has gratitude shaped your heart? Reflect and ponder on these questions as the Flower Moon cycle comes to an end.
The card pulled for the Last Quarter is Dream. The Visionary blesses us with dreams of hope and inspiration, and gives us courage to act upon these dreams. Pay close attention to the dreams you have as as moon cycle wanes... What patterns are coming up for you? Where are your dreams guiding you next? Remember to keep an open mind and keep your heart open to new possibilities. For these dreams will be the seeds of the next moon cycle.
We hope this Flower Moon cycle brings you lots of love abundance and draws you closer to your dreams and desires. We are so grateful for you, our Moontribe for always supporting our work here and following the moon and all her phases. They are all beautiful and unique in their own ways!
Go forth and bloom!
