New Moon in Scorpio | Moonthly Energy Report

Happy New Moon in Scorpio!

This New Moon in Scorpio is a very intense and emotional one. Many of us have been feeling the depths of this New Moon for several days now. Not only is it election time… but both the Moon and the Sun are in Scorpio right now. This means our inner world and outer world are both feeling that intensity and rawness that Scorpio can bring.

Venus is just now getting out of Scorpio, but you may still be feeling her, as Venus is still in her “Shadow Period.” Venus, the planet of love, has been retrograde in Scorpio the house of darkness and transformation since October, and won’t go direct until the 16th of November.

This will take a lot of pressure off of our relationships, as we are able to see things a bit clearer with the balancing help of Libra. Just as Venus goes direct, Mercury goes retrograde in the fiery sign of Sagittarius on the 17th of November.

New Moon in Scorpio

This New Moon is a time of powerful and intense emotions!

New Moons are about new beginnings and starting fresh. Where do you need a fresh start in your life? You have the answers within you, but it’s your emotions that will show you the answers the right now.

It’s very important to feel your emotions and try to understand what they are trying to teach you. Which can be hard, because everything just feels so intense right now.

Being election time and with such high stakes, it’s very important for us to remember that we are empaths. And as empaths we are most likely feeling into the hearts and emotions of others, and especially our fellow empaths.

Practice repeating “Not mine!” in your head if you feel an intense or unknown emotion come up and you can’t tell if it’s yours. If the emotion is yours, it will stick around for you to heal and process. If not, recognizing that it’s not yours shines a light on it and “casts it out” for you. If you still aren’t sure, burn some sage, or spend time meditating.

The card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent: Awareness. There is an important lesson for us each to learn this month. Let your emotions teach you something. Listen to them, journal them, observe them.

It’s very important to not run from your feelings. Practice listening to your emotions, and see if you can find the lesson you are needing to learn. Trace your emotion back to its root, and ask yourself how you can heal it from your new perspective. Create a New Moon intention around what you find.

First Quarter Moon in Aquarius

The First Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Aquarius on the 15th of November. Aquarius is the sign of the water-bearer. Because of this, it is often confused to be a water sign, but in ancient times, she was known as the knowledge-bearer.

When the First Quarter Moon is in Aquarius we ourselves feel a greater thirst for knowledge and answer seeking. As the moon grows in the sky you might feel your desire for learning or reading increase. The card pulled for this week is Waxing Crescent: Transform. What greater way to transform yourself than by learning something new.

Use this First Quarter Moon in Aquarius to do just that. Spirit answers in mysterious ways. Answers or truths you’ve been needing may be tucked away in the passage of a book, or in an online article you accidentally stumble on. Listen to a TED talk, or find a new youtube channel that peaks your interest. Follow your curiosity and allow it to transform you!

New Moon in Scorpio Spirit de la lune Mercury Retrograde

Mercury goes retrograde on the 17th.

Mercury is the planet of communication, and intellect. When it goes retrograde, it it ends up spending extra time in a certain sign.

Mercury is wanting us to take our extra time too. Mercury always emphasizes something in our life when it goes retrograde. So be aware.

This time the retrograde takes place in Sagittarius. Fire signs typically have to do with our creative ventures, projects and our passions. So instead of being overly eager to mark anything as “done” double check your work first. There may be something you are missing.

New Moon in Scorpio| Spirit de la lune New Moon Energy Reading

Full Moon in Taurus

The Full Moon in Taurus takes place on the 22nd of November, just as the colder weather begins to set in for much of the Northern Hemisphere.

Storms and winds are more likely a few days before and after the New and Full Moons, so this Full Moon will bring colder winds to many of us in experiencing the autumn season.

Full Moons are also a time of completion and fulfillment. Sometimes they mark a harvest, or a reason to celebrate and gather with friends. But sometimes they can mark the completion of a personal cycle, or a lesson learned that is all our own. Insights will be available at this time that can help you overcome your obstacles.

This Full Moon is in the Loving sign of Taurus and the card pulled for this phase is Waxing Gibbous: Surrender. We are being asked to surrender to the lessons we’ve learned and finally let go. Use this Full Moon to truly let go of what’s been holding you back. Don’t forget to check back for the Full Moon for our Full Moon Ritaul!

The last quarter moon is in the sign of Leo on the 29th of November.

Last Quarter Moon in Virgo

The Last Quarter Moon takes place in the signs of both Leo and Virgo (depending on location and time) on the 29th of November.

The Last Quarter Moon marks the turning point in the month where we feel our own energy wind back down a bit as we prepare for the New Moon once again. This is a time for release and in many ways self care is needed for that to happen.

Take this week to reflect and ground your energy. A lot has been going on this month. The Waning Cycle and Virgo are both Earth elements, asking us to take a break from all of these intense emotions we have been going through. The card pulled for this phase is the Crone Moon: Deep Wisdom, reminding us that the veil is still thin and our ancestors and Spirit are near. Ground, meditate and prepare.

New Moon in Scorpio Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune

November is a harbinger of transformation. By the end of it, you truly might feel like bundling up and hibernating for a bit.

Give yourself the time and space to nurture your body and soul as we embark into the darker colder months. Enjoy the season of transformation.

Happy New Moon! Don’t forget to charge your decks and crystals tonight under the New Moon. Make an intention and set it on your altar under this Powerful night!

Lunar Blessings!

Full Cold Moon

in Gemini

December 3rd 2017


The Full Moon takes place in Gemini on December 3rd. The moon in Gemini might have you feel outgoing and extroverted. You could be finding yourself more light hearted, cheerful and sociable than normal. 

The Full Moons represent fulfillment, celebration and the turning point of a cycle; after tonight, the moon will begin to wane back to New. This Full Moon in particular is also signaling the coming Winter season ahead for those of us on the Northern Hemisphere.

Seek comfort in your Ebb...

What does this mean? This New Moon cycle is all about the winding down of the seasons, embracing our darkness and embarking on transformation... Find the comfort in the chaos and look for the peace in the unfolding. The Winter season is inevitable, (even if you don't experience literal snow where you live!) so you might as well learn to adapt in the best way possible! 

Do something to honor yourself and aid in your relaxation right now. Go into hibernation mode if you have to- whatever that might mean to you. Take a nice bath with a cup of coffee, binge watch your favorite show with a glass of wine, or stay in with a nice sketchbook or novel. You define your level of comfort. Seek out the experiences and rituals that offer you comfort even if the outside world is full of chaos.

New Moon in Scorpio | Spirit de la Lune energy Report Cold Moon 2017

The card pulled for this phase is the Super Moon card. Be prepared for anything during this phase. 

The emotionally charged Full Moon is in the airy sign of Gemini and goes opposite the Sun in Sagittarius on the 3rd, while on the 1st, Venus entered Sagittarius.. igniting many aspects of communication within our relationships and how we express ourselves to others.

The Super Moon card indicates that a lot is going on... and anything is possible, so watch your emotions, be mindful of your habits, and choose your words wisely.

Mercury also goes retrograde on the 3rd in the sign of Sagittarius! It's important to keep an open mind and go with the flow. Use the time in Scorpio to delve into your spiritual studies and practices. Tune yourself to the moon and truly listen to your intuition before acting. Remember that Mercury retrograde is not a bad thing!

It is a normal occurrence that holds the opportunity to bring you closer to yourself and others. Your communication methods (and even technology) may be put to the test during this time, but it's nothing to worry about. Mercury Retrograde has a way of showing us what needs to be reworked for our lives to flow smoother in the future.

Don't forget to check back on December 3rd for the Full Moon Ceremony honoring the Cold Moon!

Last Quarter Moon

In Virgo

December 10th 2017



The Last Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Virgo, the Healer. The Virgo energy, mixed with the Last Quarter Moon may have you feeling a bit on edge. There is going to be a lot of energy and it will need a place to go! 

On December 9th, Mars enters the intense sign of Scorpio and amps up the energy and powerful emotions even more. The Waning Moon may have you wanting to finish up goals or tie up loose ends which is important as that energy does need to go somewhere. 

Utilize this Virgo energy by looking for ways you can bring more organization into your life for the new year ahead. Virgo holds the ability to solve organizational problems in a creative way. So allow the Virgo within you to do it's job during the Waning/Last Quarter Cycle. You can organize areas of your home, donate to a thrift store, brainstorm new ideas for the upcoming year, etc.

The card pulled for this phase is the Connect card. Remember that everything is connected!

This Virgo energy may be calling you to clean your house and organize small aspects of your life, but understand that this is connected to larger areas of your life. Everything is connected!

It's been said that the way we do one thing is the way we do everything.. try keeping your home organized and clean or working with a to-do list more consecutively and see what clarity it can bring to different areas in your life. 

This will also be important for the transition of Saturn into Capricorn on December 20th. This transit will bring our careers and our social status into focus. You may find yourself more driven towards self discipline. So use this time to help prepare yourself.

New Moon Spirit de la Lune Card

Embrace this new beginning with a new outlook!

 Last month's chaotic energy is beginning to wind down. We are finally starting to feel a moment of ease as Earth enters into a new season.

Last month had some intense energies that shook core foundations for everyone. 

We have been surrounded in swirling confusion and chaos for too long.. 


It's time to pick up the pieces, move forward and build a new foundation.

This New Moon is coming at what feels like perfect timing; Sagittarius is what feels like the ideal guide as we navigate out of the murky waters.

Sagittarius energy is very dominant on our planet right now. The archer is lending us a hand to pull us out of the depths of the dark Scorpio energy we have been swimming through. 

Much has been brought to the surface over these fall months, but it's time to move forward into the light. 

December 2016 Energy Reading Spirit de la Lune


So grab a cup of tea, cozy up by the fire and take a look at what this New Moon energy holds for you.

New Moon in Sagittarius

New Moon in Sagittarius | Spirit de la Lune

Today's New Moon takes place in the mutable fiery sign of Sagittarius.

Sagittarius is shining a spotlight into the shadows right now. A lot was brought to the surface over these last months, and we are being asked to take a closer look and decide what it is that needs to move forward with us into this new chapter.

It's time to embrace our fears and confusion, and move forward into what it is that we want for ourselves. The Archer archetype is on a quest for Truth and Faith. Let go of what it is that is holding you back from seeing the Truth, and step forward with a new sense of faith.  

The New Moon indicates some new fresh energy coming into your life, and a brand new chapter unfolding for you. Now is the time to make up your mind, set your intentions and hold fast to your faith. Have faith, even if you don't believe fully just yet.

Practice holding your faith, and allow it to become a dominant part of your life and watch your intention come to full fruition. 

The card pulled for this phase is the Manifest card. A reminder that our life is always unfolding, and we are always manifesting what we are matched with. You have all that is needed within you to manifest your desires.. Now is the time to focus your energy, attention and emotions on what it is that you want to manifest. Know that you are worthy of your desires and they are always within reach. Reach for the emotional manifestation first, and allow the rest to unfold into the physical.


First Quarter Moon in Pisces

First Quarter Moon December 2016 Spirit de la Lune Energy Reading

The First Quarter Moon takes place in Pisces on December 7th. 

As the moon grows in the sky, energy and emotion is ignited. We tend to feel impassioned and more motivated around this time.

You will be finding new opportunities and avenues to help you fulfill your New Moon intentions.

This moon phase is a time of growth and is ruled by the element of fire. 


However, this First Quarter Moon takes place in the watery sign of Pisces. You may be feeling extra sensitive at this time, especially as the moon . Your intuition may feel sharper, or you may notice more synchronicities this week. 

Utilize this fluid energy, and combine it with the creative fire energy of the First Quarter Moon. Go back to your New Moon intention and see what more you can do to help bring it to fruition. Make a vision board, or meditate on your intention. Use your heightened sensitivity to your advantage. 

The Card Pulled for this Phase is the Sage Moon Card. There may be something in your life that you need to purify yourself of. This card reflects cleansing your self; mind, body and spirit.

There may be a need for physical cleansing of your space. You may be calling for a good soak in a salt bath to cleanse your energy. When working with intention and energy, it's important to keep all channels open and cleansed for energy to flow freely.

What can you do to open and cleanse the channels of energy in your life?

Last Quarter Moon in Virgo/Libra

Last Quarter Moon Energy Reading | Spirit de la Lune


Last Quarter Moon takes place on December 20th in both Virgo and Libra.The energy begins to wind down again as we prepare for the New Moon. The days are short, and the nights are cold and long as Yule takes place on the 21st of December, marking the Winter Solstice.

This lunar energy holds the same quiet air as the Cold Moon Archetype of the week before. You are asked to listen to what your body and soul needs for your own nourishment and hibernation. 

Take some time on Yule, the day after the First Quarter Moon, and release the old energy in your life. Make new goals and plans for the future, and set some intentions for the year ahead. Yule marks the beginning of the year and is a good time for long term goals. The Waning Moon energy can help you see clearly what it is that needs to be released.

The Card Pulled for this phase is Awareness. We are being asked to be conscious and aware as much as possible. The need to be awake and attentive is now. Major spotlights are popping up all over the world, showing us what is and what isn't working. This is happening in many ways on planet earth, and within us and our personal lives.

 Focus and awareness seem to be major themes for this month. We are always manifesting, and our lives unfold according to our emotions and intentions. Remember your awareness and focus are your greatest tools for expansion!
