2018 Blood Moon Cycle Energy Reading

Happy New Moon in Virgo!

new moon in virgo

We are already in September and a new season is upon us all no matter what hemisphere you live in.

Change is in the air and we are approaching the equinoxes seasons, Autumn or Spring. We are transitioning from the Fire season of Summer to the watery energy of Autumn, and the earthy energy of winter, to the airy season of spring. Fire to Water, Earth to Air... The elements activate different energies within us!

Water teaches us to flow and surrender to the currents.. Air brings us freshness, new perspectives, and lightness. Both Equinox seasons purify, renew, and clarify our spirits.

Venus has entered the shadow period on September 2nd, and will be in retrograde towards the end of this moon cycle Oct 5th. This Blood Moon cycle will challenge our relationships, our values, and what we deem worthy of our time and energy. As we navigate this cycle it is important to practice compassion, patience, and kindness to ourselves and others. But you will gain more clarity and insight if you allow yourself space to do your Shadow work, especially now that Saturn has gone direct on September 6th!

So cozy on up with a cup of tea or a nice glass of wine, learn what other insights this moon cycle has in store for us!


New Moon in Virgo: September 9th 2018

Rest

We are being asked to tune into our bodies and really listen to what they need right now. You may have been overworking yourself, find you are on the brink of burnout, or feeling a lot of overwhelm this New Moon. Virgo energy can make us feel extra critical of ourselves or others and can bring out our perfectionistic tendencies... But we do not have to engage with them. Give yourself permission to rest your mind, body, and spirit... however this will look and feel to you. This will help you ease into the next season with more grace and fluidity.

 

 


First Quarter in Sagittarius: September 16th 2018

Balance and Harmony

First Quarter Moon's are always a great time to check-in with yourself... and with the Libra card being pulled, it is a reminder of the Venus retrograde coming up (Venus rules Libra), and so you may feel some tensions rise in your relationships at this time. It is important to speak your truth, and notice if you are giving or receiving more. Do you feel like you are giving and giving to others, but the energy is not being reciprocated? Or have you been taking too much energy from others and that is causing tension? Check-in, take responsibility for your actions, and do the necessary steps to find your balance once again. Apologize, or forgive yourself, and move on.


Full Moon in Pisces/Aries: September 24th/25th 2018

Focus on Love

Some people will be experiencing the Full Moon in Pisces on Sept. 24th, and some Sept. 25th in the sign of Aries. Again, another cusp between the elements, water and fire. Both elements are emotional and passionate. By now, we have entered the sign of Libra and the new season. I pulled another card ruled by Venus, Taurus: the Lover. Again, a reminder of Venus retrograde... You may be confronted with obstacles that keep you from focusing on what you love to do. Let Taurus be a reminder to focus on love this Full Moon. Let yourself be immersed in love, self-care, focus on healing family trauma (look out for an amazing tarot/oracle spread to connect with your ancestors for our Full Moon post!)... get clear about what is worthy of your time and energy... love is always a worthy endeavor. Whether it's the love you have for your family and friends, yourself, or a project near and dear to your heart, or all of the above. Focus on love.


Last Quarter in Cancer: October 2nd 2018

Bloom Where You are Rooted

A couple of days before the Venus Retrograde, we find ourselves on the Last Quarter Moon in Cancer... the Nurturer. Energy is turning inward and it is time for reflection. What needs nurturing right now? What have you been neglecting? The card pulled is the Flower Moon: Bloom. This is a powerful card paired with Cancer. Cancer is the Mother of the zodiac, so this is a wonderful time to nurture yourself, others, and your space. Take time to make a great home cooked meal and savor it. Decorate your space for the changing seasons and allow the magick of the season to enchant you. Bloom where you are rooted. Do not focus on what you can't have... focus on what is blooming right before your eyes. You will move into Venus Retrograde with grace, beauty, and a full heart.

The Blessing Moon Reading 

  1. Moon rise: What is rising in my life?

  2. Flow: How is the energy moving?

  4. Ebb: What is slowing down?

  5. Moon set: What am I making room for?

The cards are predicting a fun, a little wild, and flowing moon cycle ahead!  The New Moon in Gemini can bring unexpected surprises and changes, but it is important to surrender and go with the flow. After the Full Moon will be a wonderful time to purge and cleanse yourself and your surroundings so you can get back into your creative groove. 

1. Moon rise: What is rising in your life?

wild card.jpeg

The New Moon in Gemini takes place Wednesday, 6/13/18 and is a Super Moon! The first card pulled for the reading! We won't be able to see  this moon, since she is aligned with the sun, but we will definitely feel the energy! Expect some surprising news. It is just like the Twins to do this! How you react to this news or change of course is key. When the Super Moon card is pulled it reminds us that life is unpredictable and that's what makes life a journey! All the elements are activated on a Super Moon, so tend to your elemental realms: Air (mental realm); Fire (spirit realm); Water (emotional realm); Earth (physical realm). Which realm is feeling more off, or more reactive today? Tend to your needs and pay attention to your loved ones too. They may need some support and help realigning and tuning in too.

2. Flow: How is the energy moving?

The news or developments that have arisen during the New Moon could still be integrating in your system and you may be feeling overwhelmed at this point. If something is out of your control, then surrendering to what is is your best option. The flow of energy will really depend on if you resist this change or not. You always have a choice. Emotions are high and allow them to flow out to fully surrender. When you are able to surrender you are able to flow with the currents of the present moment. And sometimes that is truly the best medicine.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift... that's why they call it present”

3: Full Moon: What is being completed?

devotion.jpeg

Where have  you been putting your devotion? In a special project? A relationship? Maybe not so healthy habits? Whatever it may be, there will be a turning point soon. Maybe you have reached a deeper level in your relationship; or maybe with all this time and energy you have put into your creation, you can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. With the Full Moon in Capricorn on 6/28/18, utilize this ambitious Capricorn energy and sprint for the finish line. If you are not so happy with your progress, or your devotion has been lacking... make a vow on this Full Moon to yourself with how you will better use your time, energy, and willpower. A to-do list is Capricorn's best friend. You can charge it under the Full Moon to activate your willpower! Remember to do this for you and no else!

4: Ebb: What is slowing down?

purify.jpeg

After the Full Moon, the momentum of the moon cycle begins to slow down and wane. The Sage Moon card is reminding us that this is the perfect time to reflect, cleanse and purge. Because we began with the all the elements activated during the New Super Moon, let's focus on all the elemental realms again. Get out your journal and pen: 

Air (mental realm): What patterns or beliefs are holding you back? How can you release them and create new affirmations or mantras to take their place?

Fire (spirit realm): Are you feeling connected to your purpose? If yes, how can you keep nourishing this connection? In no, what needs to change so you can reconnect?

Water (emotional realm): What emotions are weighing you down? Can you pinpoint the source of themes emotions and find forgiveness and compassion?

Earth (physical realm): How is your body feeling? Would a cleanse or detox benefit you right now? What needs to be cleansed in your surroundings?

Your answers and reflections may surprise you! Try to focus on the most pressing realm first and you will begin to feel more lighter and inspired!

5. What are you making room for?

create.jpeg

If you took the time to cleanse and reflect from the last card, you should be feeling more inspired by the next moon cycle approaching! Who doesn't want more room in their life for creativity, expression, and inspiration?! So follow your heart's whims and your imagination will guide you into the next moon cycle with more good vibes to create and manifest your desires. Get clear with hat you want and what you need to work on for yourself, put in the work, and your path will reveal itself! Maybe not in the way you would expect, but in a way that will compliment your energy and journey!

We hope you have enjoyed this reading and found it refreshing and inspiring! Happy New Moon everyone!

2017-18 Wolf Moon Energy Report

Happy New Moon in Sagittarius!

The Sagittarius New Moon always brings a renewed bright energy to the winter season. It is the last fire sign of the zodiac, stoking the fires until Spring. This time we land on the Wolf Moon cycle... a cycle of activation, raw energy, and highlighting the natural world around us. 

wolf moon cycle 2.jpeg

The Wolf Moon cycle is ignited by Sagittarius and Aries, both fire signs during the waxing, or growing, phase of the moon cycle, and moves into the watery realm of Cancer for the Full Moon. We then move into the Airy sign of Libra for the Last Quarter moon of the cycle.

Earth energy comes in on December 21st, when Sun enters Capricorn shifting our focuses to responsibility, ambition, and long term plans and goals. This is a wonderful time to reflect on 2017 and make plans for 2018. Create a word of the year for 2018!

Overall, the Elements are pretty well balanced this moon cycle. The double dose of fire lends some much needed energy to us, while earthy Capricorn continues to sustain us. Mercury goes direct on December 23rd, so communications and your mind, will be less cloudy and gain more clarity! Cancer is at home in the Full Moon, so intuition and emotions will be high!

New Moon in Sagittarius

Dec. 17/18th 

new moon sagittarius.jpeg

A Sagittarius New Moon highlights adventure, trying something new, and shifting to a new outlook or perspective. The Card pulled is the Lunar Eclipse: Sovereignty. You are being asked to step into your power. There is also larger energy at play with the shifting of power in the world. What does it mean to be whole unto yourself? How would this impact your life and the next year ahead? Aim your bow high and and set standards higher for your quality of life! 

Work with the energies of Sunstone and Moonstone to balance and merge the masculine and feminine within yourself. You will feel ready for this new voyage and grounded in your intuition!

First Quarter in Aries

Dec. 26th 

When Aries is in the First Quarter Moon, the energy is high! You may feel the pull to go, go, go, or your temper may get the best of you. The card pulled for this phase is the Super Moon: The Wild Card! Anything can happen today! So it is important to take a step back and see what elements are running rampant around you. Is Fire energy all consuming? Use Aquamarine to soothe any tempers and impatience. Is your mind (the Air element) on the fritz? Amethyst will calm any anxieties and boost your creativity. Are you emotions flowing everywhere? Black Tourmaline can ground and protect your energy, while Citrine can lighten your spirits. Is you body feeling sluggish? Red Jasper can gently ground and stimulate your Root chakra, or a good workout session might be in order. The point is to tend to your elemental bodies when the Super Moon card is pulled. The elemtns are highlighted and energy can be chaotic. Focusing on balance and nourishment is key to moving through this energy.

Full Moon in Cancer

Jan. 2nd 2018

full moon cancer.jpeg

Cancer is ruled by the Moon in astrology, so this Full Moon will feel extra cozy and lovely to kick off 2018. The card pulled is The Waning Crescent: Support. Cancer rules the hearth and home, while the Sun in Capricorn highlights family, tradition, and responsibility. Stay close to your family and tribe at this time. There may be a family member who needs you support right now, but is too afraid to ask or is too prideful (Capricorn energy can do this). Do not be afraid to reach out and show your love through action. If you need help with something, simply ask and let yourself receive this help and love. 

Blue Lace Agate can help you lovingly communicate with your family, while Amazonite strengthens bonds.

Last Quarter in Libra

Jan. 8th 2018

libra last quarter.jpeg

During any quarter moon it is always a good time to check in and restore balance. On the First Quarter we tended to the elemental realms, and now with a Libra Last Quarter moon check in with your heart. Libra rules relationships, so ask yourself have you been cultivating them? Including your relationship with yourself? Is there a balance of giving and receiving? The card pulled is Gemini: The Twins... pulling a zodiac card can indicate a person in  your life. Is there a Gemini in your life that you want to get closer with, or you need to have a discussion with? Now is the time. In Tarot, Gemini is the sign of the Lover's  card, indicating a merging of two energies... masculine/feminine, light/shadow... what is merging within you?

Work with Rose Quartz to open your heart and balance the energy of giving and receiving within.
