2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

Partial Solar Eclipse in Capricorn 1.5.2019

The the Solar Eclipse is a highly-charged New Moon when the Moon is in exact alignment with the Sun, the Sun is illuminating and supporting the New Moon... So whatever intentions you set tonight be very clear and focused with them (think capturing the light of the sun in a magnifying glass) and the Capricorn energy will definitely help with this. This New Moon is great for setting intentions for career, money, security, and building a foundation you can live and thrive on so keep this in mind when you set your intentions.

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

Bloom in all your Radiance

We pulled the moondala: Flower Moon, which means whatever your goals are, you have all the resources you need to fully bloom and embody this dream. So don't be afraid to be very specific! Capricorn is very strategizing and and really wants to set you up for success. 

Uranus goes direct on January 6th, so expect the unexpected. This means be bold and take action this moon cycle... whatever ideas that have been brewing and swirling around in your head since August 2018, as crazy as they may seem, now is the time to act upon them. Also don't be surprised if any weird, unexpected events or circumstances present themselves to you... it's all a part of the bigger picture.

First Quarter in Aries 1.13.2019

The the First Quarter is always the ignition for the moon cycle... And with the First Quarter being in Aries, the Inspirer,  Aries is a natural ignitor of energy, vitality, inspiration, and fire. Focus energy into your creative projects and your goals and you will see your hard work pay off and abundance will flow. 

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

Be open to receive Your Abundance

The moondala pulled for this week was the Corn Moon... all about growth, harvest, and abundance. It can all be yours if you allow yourself to receive it. Keep your heart open and keep your thoughts focusing on your creativity, your intuition, and the magick you are creating, and the universe will meet you halfway. No time for lack!

With all that being said, Jupiter squares Neptune on the First Quarter Moon as well... so do not make any hasty decisions or actions which Aries energy is prone to do. Something may feel too good to be true, so trust your instincts and take time to evaluate before you make a big decision. 

Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo 1.20.2019

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

You are Whole Unto Yourself

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

The Total Lunar Eclipse in Leo is a beautiful Full Moon you do not want to miss. With all the cosmic energy aligning with Earth, Lunar Eclipses are all about embodiment… embodying these cosmic energies through our own bodies with grace and ease. With this energy centered around Leo (the Queen or King of the zodiac), it is time to embrace and reclaim our own birthright of power, influence, and sovereignty.

In numerology, 2019 is distilled into 12 and 3… the Hanged Man and the Empress. Surrender to embody your magick and power. Reclaim your abundance on Earth.. it s your birth right. You are a fertile, magickal, abundant being and you are meant to do great work!

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

The moondala pulled is the Super Moon, which this Full Moon is a Super moon as well! It is time to remember what you already know deep within you. Get back to the basics too… what is it you really love and want to do in the world? What do you want to embody and stand for? What would it be like to step into your power, wear your crown, and be the King/Queen you are meant to be?

This may sound daunting, but remember this Moon Cycle may be the most important Moon Cycle you to focus on in 2019… everything else will begin to flow once you settle into your new foundations and begin to truly thrive!

Stay tuned for a Full Moon ceremony where we will teach you how to create your own loose incense for the Sage Moon and embody your power for 2019!

Last Quarter Moon in Scorpio 1.27.2019

2019 New Moon in Capricorn energy report

In the Darkness I am Reborn

The Last Quarter brings us into Scorpio energy... dark, mysterious, magickal. Scorpio energy can also lead us in Shadow work… where we can fully release the power and control our fears and doubts have over us. And with the moondala, Blood Moon, pulled it is time to let go and shed.

You may have felt so aligned and bold and assertive and peaked at the Full Moon, and now maybe your energy is crashing… this can happen and know it is perfectly natural. Like high tide and low tide, the currents are here to guide you, no matter how low you may feel. The Last Quarter energy is here to show you where you can release and let go to fully embrace the new goals and intentions you set for 2019.

Write down your fears, resistance, and doubts moving into 2019, and release them in a ceremony. You could burn them in your cauldron, literally flush them down the toilet, bury them in the earth, or throw them in the trash! The physical act of releasing is what is needed, and when you do this with intention, humbleness, and standing in your truth, you can really move forward into the 2019 you want to invoke.

We hope you enjoyed this reading and we hope it inspires you to make 2019 your best year yet! Don’t forget to set out your cards and crystals under the Solar Eclipse tonight!

2018 Solar Eclipse Moon Cycle Energy reading

Happy Solar Eclipse in Leo!

Our last eclipse of 2018 is trailing the Lionsgate activation on 8/8/18. There is so much cosmic energy in the air and swirling around us... if you feel scattered, or your energy feels flighty, drained, or you are just downright frazzled... you are not alone! The collective energy is experiencing big shifts, surprises, and changes are still up ahead! 

Read more below about how you can anchor these energies into your daily life, while navigating this new terrain.

New Moon in Leo 8/11/2018

New Moon in Leo Spirit de la Lune

The New Moon in Leo can bring a fiery, playful energy into your life. Leo is the King/Queen of the jungle... so you are most likely feeling a lot of energy in your Crown chakra... with so much energy coming down from the Heavens, your Crown is super activated and probably over-stimulated. Bring this energy back down to Earth.

It is not surprising that we pulled the last moon phase card, Waning Crescent: BE. To navigate these big energies, you need to be anchored in your body and feel grounded and safe to move forward. 

Focus all this fiery energy of Leo into your body and practice self-care this New Moon. Go outside and place your barefeet on the ground. Feel the Earth's energy support you and feel her energy move into your body. This is called Earthing. Lay down on the Earth and let her fully support you! You will soak in the negative ions from the soil and you will feel more connected to the core of who you are once again.

A salt bath is also a wonderful way to nourish and ground your body. Use at least 2-3 cups of epsom salt and sea salt in your bath tub to really get all the benefits. And relax and soak for at least 20-30 minutes. Water is so purifying and healing and can cool down the fiery, activated energy of the Crown. If you do not have a tub, just soak your feel using a bowl and 1/2 cup of salts. 

You will feel more grounded and settled in your body to integrate the bigger collective energies of the cosmos!

Spirit de la Lune New Moon Reading

First Quarter in Sagittarius 8/19/18

The First Quarter in Sagittarius adds another layer of the fiery energy from the New Moon, but Sagittarius brings inspired action. If you have kept grounded and have listened to and have nourished your body throughout the eclipse portal, you may feel inspired to do more and have the energy to do so. Mercury moves direct today, so this refreshing energy can leave you feeling more inspired and more impulsive!

However, the card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent: Awareness. Check-in with your motives. First Quarter's are always good times to check-in with yourself (aka, check yourself before you wreck yourself!) and see where your energy is aligned. If your actions are truly inspired  and aligned with your values... then go for it! Aim your bow high and shoot for the stars!

If your actions are stemming from boredom, restlessness, a need to compete or get even... do not move forward yet! You need to get to the root as to why you are feeling this way. Check in with your body, once again. Get grounded. Focus this energy into healthy activities and you will fall back into alignment once again.

Harvest moon in Pisces 8/26/18

Full Moon | New Moon Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

Yes the Harvest Moon is early this year! We follow the moon, not the man-made calendar. 

Remember when we had  2 Full moon's in January, and 2 Full Moon's in March? That meant there was no Full Moon for February. This makes the names of the Full Moon's feel early to those who follow only the Gregorian, 12-month calendar. Spirit de la Lune honors the 13 Full Moons of the year.

Full Moon | New Moon Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

A Full Moon in Pisces is watery, dreamy, romantic, and sensitive. Again, a lot of the Higher chakras are being activated, and it is particularly important for Pisces energy to be grounded, and to feel safe and protected. You may feel more psychic and tune in easily to everyone's energy and emotions around you. Remember you do not need to hold this energy for anyone. And if you are feeling highly emotional, ask yourself... Are these emotions actually my own?

The card pulled for the Harvest Moon is Waning Crescent: Support. Let go of pride and remember to ask for support when you need it. To feel grounded and supported, you may need to lay low this Full Moon and create a sanctuary for yourself to cocoon into. Create an ambiance that is soothing to you with pillows, candles, aromatherapy, another salt bath is always yummy under a Pisces full moon. Let yourself get swept away in romantic movies, or get yourself a good book to get lost in. Ask your loved ones to give you this time to just relax and with no obligations. You will come back to the world feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.

The day after the Full Moon, 8/27/18, Mars moves direct and any resistance you may have been feeling will melt away and you can move forward with more peace of mind.

Last Quarter in Gemini 9/2/18

Now that you feel renewed from the Full Moon, the Last Quarter in Gemini sweeps in with a refreshing energy and you may get some unexpected news or the changes you have been anticipating are upon you. But you feel more grounded and more empowered to take them on.

Interestingly enough, the card pulled for this week is the Waxing Gibbous: Movement. If you have been making self-care a priority, you have channeled all the extra energy around you and can now move forward with confidence! Make your to-do list and stay on track with your priorities and move with inspired action once again. You will move into the next Moon cycle with your Crown held high, yet grounded in your body. 

This is an exciting time, so ebmbrace it wholeheartedly and move forward with your heart courageously open to the new chapter ahead!

2018 Seed Moon Energy Report

Happy Solar Eclipse in Aquarius!

New+Moon+in+Aquarius+Energy+Reading+_+Spirit+de+la+Lune.jpg
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.

2017 Harvest Moon Cycle Energy Report

Happy Total Solar Eclipse in Leo!

The total solar eclipse initiates the Harvest Moon Cycle. This cycle is all about finding the moments of gratitude and awe in our lives. With the retrogrades and the intense, chaotic energies at play right now, it can be hard to find those fleeting moments.

But the Solar Eclipse is shining light on all our heaviness so we can choose to transmute these heavy energies into something else. Something supportive, something light, and something new. The retrogrades (Uranus, Mercury, and Chiron the Wounded Healer) are bringing the collective burdens of humanity to the surface, so we can do our part to shed some light and awaken peace.

It feels like a lot to take in, I know. But the cards pulled for this cycle bring all the elements to the forefront (fire, earth, water, and air) showing balance is possible. We are also approaching the equinox which brings in balance and alignment as well. We have universal and elemental support to do our work!

We will stay grounded, centered and strong if we keep gratitude the main priority this cycle.

Grab a cup of tea and continue reading about the Harvest Moon cycle!


Monday, Aug 21st is the Total Solar eclipse in Leo (and possibly Virgo depending on your time zone)...

There is an intensity that is palpable now. The sun (collective ego) is in alignment with the New Moon (the collective subconscious emotions, fears, and desires) and creating a portal on the earth across the United States. Most places around the world will see the eclipse partially, but the energy is still infusing the earth. The card pulled for this eclipse is Courage... Telling us we have a choice. We can choose courage. We can choose to stand up collectively as humans and own our shit. Take a stand, take responsibility, and do our part to work together. It takes courage to see the best in ourselves and know that we can do better and be better. The more we find the courage to do our part for humanity within our own communities, the stronger we will be together. This will look and feel different for everyone, so take some time to really evaluate what you can do for yuourself and others right now.


The First Quarter moon is Tuesday, August 29th in Sagittarius, the Explorer.

The optimism of the Archer can lift our spirits and affirm the courageous actions we are taking. Interestingly enough, the card pulled is Boundaries. How can you push your boundaries a little further? How can you find that edge if discomfort and embrace it? This is the only way towards growth and finding new pathways. They are called growing pains for a reason? It takes friction to create a spark, which can lead to a blazing fire. What is the friction you need to create that spark in you? Allow the explorer within you guide you on this adventure.


The Full Moon in Pisces is the Harvest Moon, on Wednesday, September 6th

so expect emotions to rise like the sea at high tide.

The Pisces energy will open you to new levels of compassion, empathy, and your intuition will be buzzing. You will most likely have a new perspective of humanity and your part in this interconnected web of life. The card pulled is Cancer the Nurturer. Tend to your emotional body right now. Nurture these new gifts you are coming into. Tend to your Third-eye chakra and it will open in amazing ways. Find the gratitude and awe you have for humanity and the Earth. We need to remember and tend to these currents  so they can keep flowing through our lives and the collective. You may feel not only your emotions, the emotions of the collective on your shoulders. Do not let them become a burden. Know you are not alone and with each act of compassion, love, and kindness, the collective will soften.


The last Quarter Moon falls in airy Gemini on Wednesday, September 13th.

 

You may feel your thoughts are more scattered and you may be tapping into the collective thoughts and patterns that keep you distracted and  unfocused. The card pulled is Refine. In order to refine anything, one needs more clarity and focus. You need to hush your ego right now and tune in to your higher self. The part of you that keeps you centered and focused on your true path. Ground yourself and remember your purpose and passion. Reflect on this cycle and find those moments of absolute clarity. How can you refine your actions and thoughts so they can align with your path? Reflect and get ultra clear for the next moon cycle and the next new moon.


Throughout this moon cycle, keep a gratitude journal and write your blessings and gratitudes daily. This will invoke the energy of awe, beauty, and peace. It will also change they way you see the world and humanity.

During the time of the Solar Eclipse, set out your crystals and tarot and oracle decks, for some powerful charging and cleansing. Between 8:30 am and 3pm (pacific standard time) is when the journey of the solar eclipse unfolds. Remeber not to stare at it directly!

New Seed Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces: Moon Charting for Your Moon Sign

Happy New Moon Solar Eclipse, Moon Tribe!

We are shaking things up over here on the Moon Blog and we wanted to offer you something different this New Moon!

The Solar Eclipse in Pisces expands your dreams and may gift you a vision of new possibilities and opportunities to expand creatively. It is up to you to follow your intuition through this new threshold and dive in. So that is what we did!

Today we want to share more about Moon Signs and how to connect with them through this Seed Moon Cycle.  

So grab a cup of tea and sit for a spell and learn more about your Moon Sign!


What is a Moon Sign?

Most people know their Sun Sign, but the Moon Sign is just as equally as important. Just as the Sun was in a zodiac sign the day of your birth, the Moon was also traveling through a zodiac sign adding another layer to your cosmic makeup. The Moon travels quickly through all 12 zodiac signs every moon cycle, so in order to know which Moon Sign is yours, you need to know the exact time of your birth. You can find your birth time on your birth certificate, or hopefully one of your parents may know.

The Moon filters the zodiac signs differently than the Sun. The Sun radiates light, so your Sun Sign is usually the sign that makes a big chunk of your personality and how you let others see you, or how you shine your light outwardly into the world. However, the Moon Sign reveals our inner world, and reflects to us how we perceive the world and relate to others. The Moon rules the emotions, so your Moon Sign will reveal how you control your emotions (or how your emotions control you) and what you need to feel safe to be your best self and shine. Your Moon Sign also reveals your subconscious motives, so if your Moon sign does not resonate with you, you may need to look deeper and confront your subconscious fears. Don't worry though, the Moon sign is not meant to be scary, but helps reveal deeper layers of our psyche, so we can learn more about ourselves and ture desires. Plus it's really fun to read about!


The Moon Signs

Once you know your Moon Sign, now you can learn more about it and how you can work with the archetypal energy through the moon cycle! Read about your Moon Sign below!

 

 

 

Moon Sign in Aries

The Inspirer

Aries Moon Sign - Spirit de la Lune

Energetic, Enthusiastic, Wears Heart on Sleeve

If you are an Aries Moon, you bring the fire and passion into everything you do. Your emotions boil and bubble over and that can be so refreshing, but also intense! It is important for the Aries Moon  to channel their zealous energy into healthy hobbies and activities. Hotheadedness can be an issue if you let your emotions and energy scatter. You may be impulsive, but that is also a part of your charm. Just try not to offend someone in the process. To balance an Aries Moon, bring more calm and watery energies into your surroundings. Moon Charting: Track how much water you should be drinking to add more cooling soothing vibes. You can also track when you feel the most positive and vibrant, and when you feel your anger rise. Colors to use: Soothing blues and vibrant shades of red and orange.

Moon Sign in Taurus

A Taurus Moon sign loves affection, adoration, and gives love with their whole heart and soul. Taurus Moon's shine and feel the most confident in a loving relationship. You are also very intuitively connected with your body and senses, so make sure you truly listen to your bodies needs! Taurean Moon signs are known to eat their emotions, especially when stressed, so when you feel you begin to over indulge that is the time to check in with the source of your emotions. Whether or not you are in a relationship, the best relationship you can love and nurture is the one with yourself! Moon Charting: Track how you nurture and love yourself through the moon cycle, adding pampering and beautify rituals will spark your inner Venus (Venus is the ruler of Taurus)! You can also track your other relationships, or when your heart chakra is most open or closed. Color suggestions: Reds and pinks for love and sensuality, and shades of green for your Heart chakra!

The Lover

Taurus Moon Sign - Spirit de la Lune

Affectionate, Confident, Gives Love Wholeheartedly

Moon Sign in Gemini

The Twins:

Curious, Analytical, Loves a great debate or conversation

As a Gemini Moon, you may feel pulled by all your emotions all at once.  The duality of Gemini brings forth many voices and perspectives from within. You have a talent to articulate what you are feeling or what you think you "should" be feeling, but may forget to actually feel it! When you feel overwhelmed, remember to come back to your breath and  breathe Gemini! Your natural element is air, so focusing on your breath will ground you back into your body and the present moment (allowing your emotions to move through you too). You may feel anxious most days, but it is usually because your mind is creating or replaying multiple scenarios simultaneously! Gemini Moons are a breath of fresh air, but don't burn yourself out. Moon Charting: Focus on staying in the present moment and observe your surroundings more. Track and see if you are a listener or talker or a balance of both. Create a daily grounding or calming meditation ritual, so you can stay present and in your body. Colors to use: Aqua blues and soothing purple tones bring calm and stillness.

Moon Sign in Cancer

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, so if you are a Cancer Moon, you are a true Moon Child! You are so connected to your emotions in every minute, you may already notice a pattern in the ebb and flow of your own emotions and energy. You may be quiet or shy, at least at first, but still waters run deep and once someone gains your trust you are completely devoted.You prefer small intimate parties and you love the comfort of your own home. Creating your sanctuary is so important for you to feel safe, supported, and to grow creatively. You need your sanctuary space to have time to feel your emotions and let them move through you. Remember to stay active and social Cancer Moon to keep your fire ignited, too much water can make you feel like a heavy wet blanket! Moon charting: Track the days you exercise so you can find your active windows and keep your fire ignited! A cleaning routine will keep you grounded and help you create and maintain your sanctuary. Color suggestions: Choose oranges to raise your energy, and choose other colors intuitively that match your mood.

The Nurturer:

Compassionate, Sentimental, Family is everything

Moon Sign in Leo

 

The Hero:

Charming, Generous, Loves to make people laugh

You are a charmer, Leo Moon! Always the life of the party, Leo Moons love to shine and want people to bask and enjoy the warmth their light creates.  As a Leo Moon, you love to feel needed and want to further a cause you are passionate about. Though some people may see it as selfish, you put your needs and priorities first, and there is no shame in that! People can learn a lot from you! And since you glow like the full moon, you can be a very inspirational leader because people are magnetically drawn to you. Do not let this get to your head, Leo. The downfall for a lot of Leo Moon's is that they let their ego lead rather than their spirit. This can lead to abuse of power or manipulation. As long as you stay true and faithful to your cause, the Hero within you can rise and you will light the way for others after you. Moon Chart: Track the days you feel inspired and creative and the days you don't feel so connected. Stay connected to your spirituality so you can stay humble and centered in your values. Colors: Use tones or yellow and gold to keep your light shining. Royal purple for spirituality.

Moon Sign in Virgo

If you find yourself frequently getting lost in a forest and have frequent encounters with faeries, then you are probably a Virgo Moon. You are drawn to nature and commune with Mother Earth and Her animals and almost prefer their company more than other human's. You may feel like an outsider, and some may feel you are unapproachable or aloof, but once someone knows you, you let them in to your wild untamed forests within and they can't help but feel like they have found a chest after a wild treasure hunt. You captivate them. Virgo Moons need room to grow and stretch, and you prefer tidy surroundings to do so as well. When Virgo Moons have the structure they need, it brings  absolute freedom. With this freedom your roots will grow deep and strong. It can be hard for you to let go or people and things because you take a lot of time and effort to nurture your surroundings, like a beautiful wild garden. As a Virgo Moon, you need the wilderness and open skies to feel rejuvenated or you will get too stuffy and bitter. Moon Charting: Make getting out into nature a priority! Learn the local herbs and flora and forage to make a healing brew! Try a vegan or plant based diet this month and see how you feel. Track when you feel the most grounded and when you feel too restricted. Colors: Browns and greens bring out your earthy vibes and connect you to nature.

 

The Healer:

Reliant, Strong, Feels best in Untamed Nature

Moon Sign in Libra

The Peacemaker:

Kind, Thoughtful, Loves to keep the peace

Libra Moon signs tend to put everyone first before themselves. Though your sign is all about balance, you like to make sure others feel balanced rather than yourself! Libra Moons make the best counselors and therapists because they are so intuitively connected to others' needs and emotions. However this can leave little to no room for balance in their own lives! You need to make sure you are very clear with your needs and desires are and make sure you tend to them daily. Scheduling in 'me time' is essential for your well being. The more balanced you are, the more you can be there to serve and help others, which is a passion of yours. It's a win win! You are ruled by Venus too, so keep your surroundings peaceful and beautiful to you. This will keep you relaxed and rejuvenate you. Moon Charting: Track when you feel most balanced in fulfilled and when you neglected your own needs. Colors to use: Use pinks for self love, and any colors that are soothing to you.

Moon Sign in Scorpio

You are one of the most intense Moon Signs if you are a Scorpio Moon. As a Scorpion you are the masters of emotions and need an intense emotional connection to everyone you meet. You can scare people with this intensity, but also you intrigue them and they want to learn more. You like to keep people guessing and the mystery is palpable with you. Be aware, Scorpio Moon, of how your actions and emotions control others. Yes, I said control, because you love to toy with others emotions and think of it as a game. But karma usually keeps you in check. If you feel you are out of control, jealousy and possessiveness can take over. You need to feel that deep, soulful, connection, so one-on-one convos are best when connecting with others, and your spiritual life will be a big passion and focus for you. Moon Charting: It would be a great idea for you to track all the emotions you feel in a moon cycle and see what you feel the most! Choose the colors for your emotions intuitively!

The Shaman:

Intriguing, Mysterious, Loves deep passionate affairs

Moon Sign in Sagittarius

Optimistic, Fun-loving, Loves to go on adventures

You are a optimist at heart, Sagittarius Moon and you love to be the friend who knows how to give a good pep talk. You are carefree and see the best in people and situations. You are great with children, because you are not afraid to be playful or childlike. You also love to flirt! It may be hard for you to commit to a relationship because when things get too serious, that's when you like to back away. You do love companionship though, so don't be afraid to open your heart to love! Think of it as a new adventure you can embark on! When you do settle down, you are loyal, warm and generous with your love. Moon Charting: Track when you feel the most optimistic and pessimistic in your moon cycle. You can also track when you prefer to be more social and outgoing and when you need to space. Color suggestions: Use bring colors like yellows, reds, and greens!

If you are a Capricorn Moon, you know what it is like to be disciplined and know the meaning of hard work. You are deeply connected to your family and show your love through your actions. You show your love by providing and taking care of your loved ones. If you feel like you cannot provide, you can feel unworthy. Don't be so hard on yourself Capricorn Moon! You work so hard, you deserve to be proud of your accomplishments! There is nothing wrong with asking for help once in a while, or letting your emotions show through. You can be so inspiring, but also intimidating. Showing your soft side once in a while can deepen you connections and you may actually like it! Capricorn Moons need to feel they are needed and are driven by their love for their family. You are the rock and the reliable one.

Moon Sign in Aquarius

 

The Visionary:

Cool, Quirky, Needs freedom to soar

Aquarius Moons need the most freedom of all the Moon signs. You need your space to experience new ways of being and thinking. The company you choose loves how care free you can be and you bring out the best in people! You have a knack for understanding how others' minds work. Because of this, you also know you can bring out the worst in people and which buttons to press, especially your close relations. However, it is always a reflection of whats going on in your mind. You are an Air sign, so you like to stay in control of your emotions, but when it gets to be too much to bear, the Water Bearer spills the cup and your emotions runneth over. You need to learn to surrender to your emotions and let them move through you, your head will feel more clear after! Don't be afraid of your own emotions! You also need to keep your brain active and challenged, so make sure your hobbies are fun and challenge you to be a better person. Moon Charting: Track when you feel your ego taking over, or your spirit takes over. You can also track when you feel very inspired and motivated, and when you begin to feel apathetic. Colors to use: Bright blues for creativity and expression and gray tones for when you feel clouded or subdued. 

Moon Sign in Pisces

Dear Pisces Moon you are the Moon in her most sensitive sign. You feel it all and soak in everyone else's emotions like a sponge.  Empathy is a powerful gift and can open very clear, channeled, psychic visions and pathways. You feel where the energy is going before most people understand what they are actually feeling, but it is easy for the Pisces Moon to feel overwhelmed and paralyzed from all this energy and stimulation. It is so important Pisces, for you to set healthy boundaries and cleanse your energy daily. You actually may have a hard time deciphering your own emotions because you carry so many from others. The more you ground and cleanse the more you will tune in to your true emotions. Because you empathy is so strong, you need to make time and create space you can drift off into. You are a fish and you need space to swim deeply and away from others; times of solitude are very rejuvenating for your spirit. Moon Charting: Track when you feel most empathetic and intuitive, and when you feel the most pessimistic or overwhelmed. Focusing on grounding and cleansing is important daily. Colors to use: Black for grounding and protection, orange to keep your energy up, purple tones for intuition.

 

The Psychic:

Imaginative, Intuitive, Deeply Empathetic


The Art of Moon Charting

Now it is time to Tune to the Moon and let the moon be your guide.

We created free printable Zodiac Moondala Compasses so you can learn to track your inner moon tides!

The moon compass will guide you through each moon phase and help you observe your unique energy flow or intentions. Please keep in mind that the Moon phases do not follow our calendar system. There are 28 spaces, but the moon cycle is approximately 28 -29 days long. Dates will not always be accurate so just go with the flow ;)

To begin, figure out your moon sign (you must know your time of birth) and choose the moon compass with your Moon Sign Zodiac Moondala. Fill out the dates for this current moon cycle starting on the New Moon. We kept them blank so you could use these for any future moon cycles! And don't worry Southern Hemisphere babes, there are charts for you too!

Start on the New Moon and clarify your intentions for the cycle. Each Moon sign has a different energy to track (read about your Moon Sign to learn what to track). Now choose the colors you will use to fill in each moon slice that compliment your intentions and moon sign. I always recommend two colors to begin with and to keep it simple if you are new to moon charting. For example, if I wish to track my physical energy I could choose orange for when I feel energetic, productive and vibrant, and blue for when I feel tired, lethargic, or lazy. Or if I am tracking my intuition, I could use purple when I feel intuitive and connected and the color gray for when I feel disconnected or cloudy. Or if I am tracking a general feel of my energy, I would choose a color intuitively each time. The choice is up to you and there is no wrong way to do this! DO NOT overthink this step, just have fun with it and let your intuition and creativity guide you!

Once you choose your colors, begin tracking daily! This means checking in with yourself daily throughout the moon cycle. The best time to do this is before you go to bed, or in the evening when your day is winding down. If weather permits, and even if it is only for 5 minutes, step outside into the night and connect with the moon (even if she is not visible). Ground yourself, connect to your intuition, and reflect on your day from that space. Check in with your intentions and what you are tracking, and then afterwards, color in your moon slice accordingly. There is room around the moon compass to write any keywords or emotions that felt potent to you.  If you do this daily and commit to checking in with yourself, by the end of the moon cycle you will have a moon map that is a unique energetic flow of you! The more you fill these out, you may begin to see patterns and your connection to your intuition, your Moon sign, and Lady Luna will deepen!

New Moon Energy Report: 2016 Harvest Moon Cycle

September is going to be a month of rapid change and deep transition

New Moon In Virgo Energy Report with Spirit de la Lune
Solar Eclipse | Spirit de la lune

It may feel a bit like a roller coaster ride, with twists and turns and ups and downs around every corner. The bumps may shake you to your core, while the twists and turns will ask you to shift your perspective into something new.

This wild ride is preparing you for some huge changes up ahead! Greater self awareness is there for you to step into.

New chapters are beginning, but first old chapters must come to a close.

 
Virgo New Moon Eclipse Reading With Spirit de la Lune
 

Many of the planetary shifts this month take place in the constellation of Virgo, The Healer.

Virgo gives us a soft place to land, while really asking us to redefine our priorities. It's time to find order, and make way for the waves of changes up ahead.

In the month of September, we will experience the North Node, Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, The Sun, and The Moon in Virgo!

You can count on changes to occur on a spiritual, mental and even physical level with such a strong and powerful earth sign guiding us through the month.

Try to keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds this month. While it's easy to retreat to our daydreams, it is very important to stay grounded and aware of your current realities and the shifts that are taking place at this time.

Ignorance can't be bliss this month. Old patterns and habits are coming to the surface to be analyzed, treated and healed. This is the month to get it right.

So grab your coffee..

and lets' Tune to The moon as we navigate through the intense energies of this New Moon Eclipse in Virgo

New Moon Energy Reading With Spirit de la Lune

September kicks off with a pretty intense New Moon Solar Eclipse in Virgo on the first of September, while Mercury went retrograde on the 30th of August.

Solar Eclipses are gateways and thresholds for us to cross. They hold exciting yet intense energies and opportunities. What is on the other side of this threshold for you? Who or what is it that you are wanting to become?

Radical changes are coming our way, and this Eclipse will ignite it! You are likely going to feel pulled in many directions, knowing that there are exciting things on the horizon. Remember, you must be patient in starting anything new while we are experiencing Mercury Retrograde.

Spirit de la lune behind the scenes

When Mercury is Retrograde we tend to experience some set backs, obstacles, and challenges. Mercury rules communication, travel, and commerce.

Electronics, computers and other gadgets are often affected during this time.

It's important to hold off on making big decisions, purchases or signing contracts. Keep in mind that conflicts and miscommunications may arise, so practice patience and compassion!

Instead of fighting the energy of Mercury in Retrograde, just try to ride the current!

You can use Mercury Retrograde energy to your advantage!

• Instead of starting a new project or venture, take some time to rethink and refine your work! New information may come to light for you. It's important to listen for the messages that reveal themselves to you during this time.
•Now is a great time for self introspection. Take out your journal, reflect on the past, dream about the future. Set some intentions.
•Set your meditation routine in stone. Connect to your higher self. Make time to clear the pathways of your own personal communication to source.

The card pulled for this phase is the Waning Crescent: Transform.

Even though this New Moon energy may seem out of control right now, you are still a powerful creator. Utilize this energy for your personal growth and transformation.

The New Moon eclipse energy has us feeling in a pupa stage. You maybe feeling on the brink of transformation and ready to spread your wings, but don't miss this vital step!

Transformation takes place in darkness. In the womb, a cocoon, or buried in the earth. If you are experiencing a period of darkness right now, remember that you too are in transition. Honor this time and be gentle with yourself.

First Quarter Moon in Sagittarius

September 2016 Energy Astrology reading with Spirit de la lune

The Firs Quarter Moon occurs on September 9th in Sagittarius. The energy is beginning to rise once again and you may be feeling anxious for direction and action while the moon is in the fiery sign of Sagittarius.

Big plans may be on your mind, and your goals may be feeling a bit more tangible at this time. But it's still not the best time to initiate anything too extreme right now. Instead, take a look at what you can do within your means.

Maybe there is a detail you've missed, or the need to go back over your initial plans. Don't be afraid to go back to the drawing board. There may be something you are overlooking.

The Card Pulled for this phase is the Waxing Crescent: Create

We are constant creators of our own reality. Everything that we do in the present, becomes a part of our future. What is that you are currently creating for your future?

There are many steps to this creative process! Be aware of the thoughts you are thinking, and the emotions you are feeling. If you are unsure what you want to create next, make a vision board, set up a new altar, let your inspiration guide you.

Try scribbling in your journal, or even free-writing. Open up those creative channels!

 

Full Harvest Moon And

Lunar Eclipse In Pisces

Full Moon Energy Reading with Spirit de la Lune

The Full Moon Lunar Eclipse occurs on the 16th of September in Pisces and a bit of Aries.

Lunar Eclipses amp up the energy, and present us the lessons that we need for the next evolutionary steps in our consciousness. This is a powerful time for revelations, awakenings, and inspiration.

The energy may really get intense during this time of the month. There is a great shift taking place on the Mother Earth right now. Not only are the seasons changing, but many vibrational shifts are taking place as well.

This Full Moon is likely to cause some erratic or even confusing behavior from others. The Eclipse energy will have people wanting clarity and closure, while we are still dealing with the miscommunications that Mercury's Retrograde can bring.

Try to be adaptable and fluid during this Full Moon. Take a page out of the Pisces book and be flexible and versatile.

This Full Moon is also known as the Harvest Moon; a turning point in the wheel of the year. The days begin to get shorter, and the nights grow cold shortly after this Full Moon.

This full moon marks the time of the Harvest.

Spirit de la Lune Full Moon Reading

As the seasons change, so do we.

The seasons are turning to a more serious note. School is back in session, and the Earth and all her creatures are preparing for the fall. September has brought us back to earth in a very real way.

Before we prepare for the harshness of winter, it is time to celebrate the summer season on the Harvest Moon.

Check back on the 15th of September for this month's Lunar Ceremony in celebration of the Harvest Moon.

Be sure to pull the Harvest Moon Spread from the guidebook, and charge your deck in the moonlight.

The card pulled for this phase is The Rebirth card.

The Full Moon Eclipse really will prove to be a form of rebirth for all of us.

The Blood Moon reminds us to accept the darkness around us as part of our inner growth and transformation.

Surrender to what is right now. Reflect on past lessons at this time. Journal and reflect on all that has taken place since the New Moon.

Be open to new opportunities, and say yes to change. Step into the unknown, embrace the darkness, and step into your rebirth.

Last quarter moon in Cancer

Energy Report 20016 September with Spirit de la Lune

The Last Quarter Moon Occurs on the 23 of September in both Cancer and Gemini.

Many of the adjustments and changes you've been through will begin to make sense to you, especially as Mercury goes direct on the 22nd of September.

This is also the Fall equinox, and the Sun's entrance into Libra. Symbolized by the scales of balance, we are sure to experience a few moments of peace and rejuvenation towards the end of September.

While the days are still growing shorter, the energy is going to begin to feel lighter, and more uplifting as we enter the months of Fall.

This energy gives you a chance to get back on track and find your footing once again. You will feel a bit of a "green light" energy towards the end of the month. Feeling like all those projects and ideas you've been waiting on are now a go!

The card pulled for this phase is the Waxing Crescent:  Envision

As the moon begins to wane back to the New Moon, your third eye will be more open. You are more in tune with your intuition. Utilize this energy, to bring your visions and intentions into physical manifestation.

Visualize your dreams unfolding. You've likely been holding this vision for quite some time and it's finally time to begin to takes the steps to manifest it.

Trust in yourself and the universe that the next steps will unfold perfectly.

 

Happy New Moon!

Remember to cleanse your deck & set your intentions.

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.
