Preparing the Soil : New Moon in Aquarius Energy Reading

Happy New Moon!

This New Moon cycle holds so much potential for new growth! The new moon on the 4th of February takes place in the sign of Aquarius.

Aquarius is an optimistic and open minded sign that is sure to bring a breath of fresh air into our lives. This might be the change you’ve been looking for.

The Sun, Moon and Mercury are sextile Jupiter which brings in an even greater sense of optimism and positive thinking, making this month feel like a lucky one! There is potential for you to find the solutions to the problems you’ve been looking for if you remain open minded and focused throughout the month.

This is a great time to prepare the metaphorical soil for the things you want to create! The planetary aspects this month lend us both clear and creative visionary thinking. You might even start seeing some tangible results.

Each month we use the the 4 turnings of the moon, astrology and our Spirit de la Lune deck to create the New Moon Energy Reading! So grab a cup of coffee and keep scrolling to see what this New Moon Cycle has in store for you!

New Moon in Aquarius

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

This New Moon holds what feels like an optimistic breath of fresh air compared to some of the heavier cycles we have had in recent past! This is an optimistic and hopeful New Moon- not only are we feeling the burst of energy that comes with the rebirth of the moon but we are feeling good about where things are heading.

This could be considered a lucky month!

The new moon sextile Jupiter is what adds to that sense of hope and happiness. The Aquarius new moon helps us visualize what we want in a clear way, and because Mercury is also sextile Jupiter, we are able to communicate our desires and ideas in a clear way. This positive thinking helps our decision making skills, and when we are looking for opportunities, we will find them and make the right decisions.

This all really helps us bring our focus into building something new!

The card pulled for this week is Rest. What do you need to put to rest in order to bring in the growth you are wanting? While we might be feeling a sense of new energy with this new moon, rest is an important aspect when it comes to growth. Be sure that you yourself are getting the rest that you need. Take time to “unplug” before bed. Reducing the amount of screen time or “blue light” before bed for an hour or more can help your natural circadian rhythms get back to normal and give you restful sleep with insightful dreams. Try candles beside your bed instead of a bright lamp to see how it affects your quality of rest.

First Quarter Moon in Taurus

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The First Quarter Moon takes place in Taurus on the 12th of February. During the waxing phase, the moon grows brighter in the sky each night. The waxing phase holds the element of fire, and like the moon our own energy and passion burn brighter and brighter with each day.

Now is the time to put your New Moon intentions and goals into action! Create your to-do list and then be ready to tackle it. This week looks like it will be productive!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

Being an earth sign, the Moon in Taurus puts a spotlight on your physical surroundings and the desire to see tangible results.

In order for a seed to grow, the soil must be prepared properly.

It’s an important time to maintain or create the physical atmosphere that supports the growth and change you are wanting to plant.

This is a great time to complete things around the house, water your houseplants, or begin a garden. We might even feel a pull to complete those physical or laborious tasks we’ve been putting off.

The card pulled for this phase is Manifest, a sure sign that your results are on their way! Take a look at what you are manifesting right now. Remember that your thoughts are things, and they are often the first part of any manifestation. Be aware and in control of your own thoughts and emotions this week if you are having trouble seeing the manifestations you are looking for!

SuperMoon in Virgo

The Seed Moon

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report
Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The Full Moon in Virgo on the 19th of February is a Supermoon! This means the Moon is larger in the sky, and the emotional and intuitive effects are heightened!

Virgo is the healer and paired with this Full Supermoon brings our awareness to our physical bodies.

It’s important to remember that our bodies are extra sensitive when the moon is in Virgo. It might be wise to stay away from tons of junk food or other low-grade foods and vegetables during this lunar transit.

But, this makes for a great time to begin new routines, work out habits, diets or other life style changes you’ve been meaning to begin!

The Moon in Virgo also amplifies our attention to detail. You might feel prone to criticism or cynicism... Try to not get caught up in this and instead focus on listing your blessings!

Switching your mindset to gratitude will help you plant the seeds you for the future!

This full moon also a great time to organize and really clear out any of the old negative energy that remains. Now is the time to begin to create those new habits that you’ve always been meaning to! The moon supports you!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The card pulled for this phase is Surrender. What do you need to surrender in order to create change in your life? If you aren’t seeing the results you are wanting to… reflect on the parts of your life you want to leave in the past. What are you holding onto? What do you need to weed out in order to support your new growth? Alternatively, it might be time for you to release and put to rest something you’ve been mentally struggling with. Sometimes “letting go” and surrendering IS the next step. Only then will you be able to see clearly. When we accept the present moment we are able to see clearly again free from resistance and anxiety. It is then that we can see the next steps forward.

Last Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report
Spirit de la Lune New Moon in Aquarius Energy Report

The Last Quarter Moon takes place in Sagittarius on the 26th of February ending this cycle in another optimistic and positive sign.

As the moon wanes in the sky, our own energy is called back in for reflection and rejuvenation. This a week for tying up loose ends and finishing up the things you started during the last New Moon.

This is a great time for making plans and goals that you don’t need to act on quite yet. Take this time to plan ahead and make some long term plans.

There may not be much you can physically do about it at this time, but keeping yourself focused on long term goals and pouring your positive energy and optimism into those plans can be more powerful than you know!

The card pulled for this phase is Guidance. Trust in the process right now and most importantly, trust in yourself. Take time out for meditation this week and tune in to your higher self. You have an inner guidance system that knows and understands more than you realize, and you are sharpening your intuition and remembering more each day that you tune into your inner guru. Trust that the teachers you need will find you when you are ready, and understand that some of your answers already lie within.

2018 Seed Moon Energy Report

Happy Solar Eclipse in Aquarius!

seed moon reading.jpeg

The Seed Moon is beginning earlier this year giving it a different kind of energy. The new season will not be here for another month or so, but we are already feeling the currents of inspiration whisper in our ears with gentle breezes, or hit us in the face like gusts of wind. Are you sensing a theme? Air is the theme this cycle, and like the New Moon, though you cannot see the wind... you can definitely feel its presence all around you.

To integrate these changes and big energies in this cycle remember to work with your breath. Breathe in this energy, integrate them into your cells, and breathe out your light and love. We are constantly recycling the same particles we breathe in and exchange with others, so let them be uplifting  and filled with love!

Get cozy and grab a cup a tea and reading the energy of the 2018  Seed Moon cycle below!

2/15/18 Partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius

seed moon solar eclipse.jpeg

Solar Eclipses are potent New Moons in almost exact alignment with the Sun... it truly creates a portal or wormhole into other realms. With the New Moon in Aquarius expect the unexpected, and have an open mind to think outside of the box and outside of societal norms. Aquarius is a transpersonal sign ruled by Uranus, so Aquarius gets ignited and inspired by projects that impact the collective, not just the individual. This amped up New Moon is thee New Moon to set intentions for big dreams and projects that reach a lot of people, impact the world, and can truly shift consciousness. Just imagine if everybody on the planet on the same exact day envisioned world peace... that would be a huge energy shift and a restructuring of the grid of the collective consciousness as we know it! The card pulled for today is Waxing Gibbous: Connect... What dreams and long term goals do you have for your community? What do you wish to bring to the community? Do not doubt your vision! This is truly your time to start bring your unique magick and offerings to the table. This will inspire others around you to do the same! 

2/23/18 First Quarter in Gemini

first quarter in gemini.jpeg

With the First Quarter in Gemini, communication is prominent... finding where Gemini or Mercury (ruler of Gemini) is in your birth chart will help you find your unique communication style. This is also the time to start taking action on the big dreams you set on the Solar Eclipse a week ago... vocalize and share them with your tribe. They need to hear your plans and you need to remain accountable... Air signs (Gemini and Aquarius) have amazing visions and insight, but can get distracted easily. Hold yourself accountable and don't waver from your vision. Speaking aloud affirmations would be wonderful at this time. The card pulled is Libra: the Lover... finding harmony and balance between listening and speaking is key right now. If your Mercury is in Libra, or Gemini in the 7th house (house of relationships, ruled by Libra), you can be very diplomatic, kind and fair in your discussions, but may avoid confrontation at all costs to keep the peace. This may be a time for you to stand up and hold your ground!

3/2/18 Full Moon in Virgo

full moon in virgo.jpeg

Depending on your time zone, some people will experience this Full Moon on March 1st or the 2nd, so double check using a moon app with your exact location! The Virgo Full Moon is grounding and inspiring... though Virgo is an earth sign She is also ruled by airy Mercury... the air theme is big in this moon cycle... offering fresh ideas and currents of inspiration if you are open to them! Virgo also knows how to organize, so use this meticulous energy to your advantage... write your to-do lists and create a vision board to solidify your goals into reality. The card pulled is the Super Moon... the Super Moon energy is still potent from the last moon cycle and with the Aquarius energy from the Solar Eclipse... continue to expect the unexpected! If you have been working on your dreams and creating solid plans... surprising news, opportunities, or changes around you are bound to happen! Say YES, keep your Heart open and your mind focused!

3/9/18 Last Quarter in Sagittarius

last quarter in sagittarius.jpeg

The Last Quarter falls in the fiery sign of Sagittarius... however Sagittarius carries the spiritual torch of the fire signs (Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius). The quarter moons are always good check-in days; check-in with your energy, goals, emotions, body... Do you feel connected to your purpose? What have you learned about yourself and your purpose this moon cycle? The card pulled for this week is the Waning Crescent: Rejuvenate. Sagittarius is half house/half human.... the balance between body and mind. Tend to your body. Our bodies have an intelligence that is pure and connected directly to Gaia and during the Last Quarter moon you can really connect to this energy. What do you need to rejuvenate your body and your mind? Follow what feels good to your body, what soothes your mind and release the rest.

2016 Seed Moon Energy Cycle

This New Moon calls in the Seed Moon cycle.... new growth, expansion, and a reawakening takes place on the land and in our bodies. We are open to a new season, a new chapter, a new path. In the Northern hemisphere, the Seed cycle is also when the Sun moves into Aries, the initiator of Spring and the fire and the warmth that moves through Gaia during this time.

New possibilities are abound!

This is the Moon energy reading for this new cycle. Starting to the right, in the East, and moving clockwise along the elemental wheel: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces; First Quarter in Gemini; Full Moon Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse in Virgo; Last Quarter in Capricorn.

There is potent energies of Earth and Water in this cycle as they align with the eclipses. Eclipses happen during the equinox seasons, while everything is aligning and coming into balance. If something is not aligning with your big dreams and visions of new growth and expansion, allow them to fall away. The Earth element asks us to come into alignment with what feels stable to us and the structures within our lives. There is new territory for you to explore! What outdated beliefs of stability do you need to let go of? Water is the realm of the emotions and the connections we weave through our lives. Do you relationship support you? Do you feel emotionally supported at this time?

When you are ready, grab a cup of tea and dive into the beautiful moon wisdom below...

Tune to the Moon

New Moon: 3/8/16

Total Solar Eclipse in Pisces: Support

This New Moon is a big energy portal. Not only is it a Total Solar Eclipse, but also a Super Moon! A threshold is waiting to be crossed deep in your subconscious. Pisces is the fish that can swim in the deep ocean of your subconscious to unlock your dreams and desires. Dive into this vortex. Carve out time in your day to daydream, take a sacred pause, and allow Pisces to move through you. Pisces is empathetic to a fault so your emotional body will be expanded exponentially. If emotions rise like high tides, breathe into them and ask yourself if they are truly yours or from others around you. If they are not yours, send them back to the earth. Imagine an amazing waterfall of turquoise light cascading down on you and cleansing the energies that are attached to you. Let them soak into the earth. With the Super Moon the waters in your body will be stirring - so drink plenty of water, take mineral baths, and stay hydrated. 

The card pulled for this phase is the Waning Crescent: Support. The Super moon charges this already amplified New Moon, so your intentions will have deeper impact on your life than you can fully imagine right now. Pisces wants you to dream BIG! Do not allow helplessness to overcome you and keep you small minded. Stay grounded in your truth and in your body to fully support your visions. Seek support from your tribe of kindred spirits - together you can fully support each other and allow abundance and love to flow through your whole community. Neptune rules Pisces and the realm of the Mystic Heart and universal love. The intentions you create now can affect your community and ripple through the world. Allow love to guide you, stay grounded to Gaia, and swan dive into deeper dimensions of your heart! 

Crystal allies: Lapis Lazuli to connect deeply to your intuition and your Higher Self; Lemurian Crystal Seed to manifest your vast visions and support your light body; Moonstone to embrace these new beginnings and to flow with your emotions.

Waxing Moon: 3/15/16

First Quarter in Gemini: Dream

The twins come out to dance under the Waxing Moon. The First Quarter Moon is the initiator of fire in the moon cycle... Ignite your dreams and move forward with passion. Gemini can help you discern the dreams and desires of your ego and your higher self. The ego will always be here to help us navigate the daily in's and out's of life, but we can also call upon the ego to help support the dreams of our souls. Ask the twins within you, "What is the motivation behind my desires?" The New Moon has asked you to ficus on the love of the world, your community and how you can spread your dreams far and wild. If your ego is trying to contain this out of self-preservation let your mind open to bigger possibilities. Dream BIG and respond to the calling.

Full Moon: 3/23/16

Lunar Eclipse in Virgo: Devotion

Lunar Eclipses always happen during the Full Moon phase. A Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse is partial, but nonetheless the shadow of Gaia caresses the terrain of the Moon. Divine Feminine energy is potent and embodied during these times. Embody your magick. Embody your sacred creative power. The Full Moon is in the earth priestess sign of Virgo. She is a practical mystic and knows how to create a sound structure for which spirit can thrive. Your body is a vessel for the Divine Feminine energy to flow through you. Nourish your body with Gaia's abundance, befriend plant allies and learn from their wisdom. Eat the rainbow. Holistic healing filters through all levels.

The card drawn for this phase is Waning Gibbous: Devotion. Stay devoted to your spirit. Allow Virgo to guide you to create nourishing daily rituals for your body, mind, and spirit. Virgo is ruled by Mercury and logically oriented, so put your mind to good use! During the Full Moon write out what your spirit needs and what stable structures can help you feed your soul.

Crystal allies: Fluorite to unite your Heart and Mind into one; Goddess Stone to honor the Divine Feminine moving through you; Lapis Lazuli to connect you the the Queen within you as you define your realm; Malachite to clear your heart and body of negative attachments. 

Waning Moon: 3/31/16

Last Quarter in Capricorn: Expansion

This cycle has taken us on a journey, but it is not over yet. As the Moon wanes the Last Quarter Moon falls into the earthy Capricorn sign. Saturn rules this sign with order, traditions, and stability. A big theme in this cycle, yeah? What outdated fears and perceptions of traditions and order need to be released? Are you accountable for your words and actions - do you walk your talk? Saturn can straighten you out! Expansion is yours if you can remain grounded but curious, and not rigid in your thought patterns. Be aware of tunnel-vision and you if you need to rest, listen to your body and relax. Open spaces are waiting for you to step into new growth.

Crystal Companions for New Growth

Here are other crystal companions to work with through the Seed Moon Cycle to enhance energy, abundance, and spark new growth within:

  • Bloodstone: Clears and detoxes the body of impurities.

  • Citrine: Opens you to abundance and positivity.

  • Clear Quartz: Magnifies intentions and manifestation.

  • Green Aventurine: Sparks adventure and new possibilities.

  • Sunstone: Enhances motivation and energy.
