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.
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
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
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
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
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.
The key to this cycle is BALANCE. Trust your intuition, listen to your instincts, and connect with each of your elemental realms. You will feel a shift in energy and feel balanced for the new year ahead.

First Quarter Moon
November 26th 2017
The First Quarter Moon takes place in Aquarius on the 26th of November. The First Quarter Cycle is represented by the fire element; as the moon grows in the sky, our own personal energy is ignited in many ways as well. This First Quarter Moon takes place in the dreamy sign of Aquarius.
You may be feeling extra inspired during this time! Your visions and goals may soon be coming to fruition, and you may be on the verge of completing something big in your life. Maintain and hold your vision. Trust in yourself and the goals you have put into place and go after your dreams.

Full Cold Moon
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.
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
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.
Have a happy New Moon!
Remember to prepare for the winter season ahead. Tonight is a powerful night, so be sure to set a solid intention.
Don't forget to cleanse and charge your crystals and decks under the New Moon.While you are at it, cleanse your body and nourish your soul in any way you can..

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!
Happy New Moon!
This New Moon takes place in the energetic and courageous sign of Leo.
This New Moon Cycle is heavily influenced by the sign of Mars and Uranus which could cause some tense moments this month.
The New Moon and Mars square Uranus, making this a potentially unpredictable and erratic time. Mars pulls us towards energy, action, sex, and even anger, while Uranus has us wanting to rebel and break free.
Be aware of the dynamic energy at play, and practice temperance. There are creative breakthroughs and new awareness available to you during this cycle if you are open to see it.
Each month we put together a special Energy Report using the zodiac of the Moon Cycle ahead. We also pull one card for each turning to help give us deeper insight to Lady Luna's message for the weeks ahead.
Grab a cup of coffee and see what this New Moon Cycle has in store for you!
New Moon in Leo
This New Moon is preparing us for the upcoming Eclipse season that will take place throughout the month of August. Action taking during this time has lasting potential- so use this time to your advantage!
Whatever this New Moon may stir up, will only increase and build until the Eclipse on August 7th. The New Moon in Leo is typically a straight forward aspect, but this one holds surprises up it's sleeve. Stay aware and in tune with yourself, as much will be revealed during this Eclipse season. Things may come up for you that will beg for your action, but you are asked to wait for the reveal.
There is a temptation to judge others and to act quickly, as Leo is a sign of fire and action. However, try to stay playful and open minded. You are asked to lighten up and stay optimistic during these heavy times. These are important and potent times for creation and intention.
The card pulled for this turning is Connect. Try to look at this week and what you are creating from a third person point of view. Connect the dots that you can see, and trust in divine timing- more will be shown to you as this cycle progresses. There is a bigger picture that needs to be looked at. Release your judgment of the situation, and try to see it from a new perspective.
The First Quarter Moon takes place in Scorpio.
The First Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Scorpio.
This could prove to be an emotionally difficult time for many.
August is going to be a month of big changes, and we may be feeling that change beginning from deep within.
Take this turning slow and continue to recharge your batteries during for the rest of July. The 1st Quarter Moon is a moon of increased energy and gaining momentum, however paired with the coming eclipses and this cycle beginning in Scorpio, much of the changes and actions you are wanting to see will be taking place within.
The card pulled for this turning is Expansion. Are you aware of how much you have grown? Take a look back to the last eclipse season which began in February 2017, and you will see just how far you have come! You are expanding in more ways than you ever dreamed of, and will be experiencing even more expansion in this next week. All changes begin from within, and Scorpio's energy paired with this card will have you itching towards the expansion of your soul. Listen to what your soul is wanting to expand upon.
Full Corn Moon
The Full Corn Moon takes place in the sign of Aquarius on the 7th of August . This Full Moon is also a partial eclipse, leading up to a greater eclipse next New Moon. Your focus may be on partnerships, relationships and striving towards all kinds of success as Jupiter squares Pluto. Be careful to not let your drive to succeed cost you your personal life or partnerships at this time.
There are actually many different astrological aspects at play at this time. The Sun is opposite the Moon (Eclipse), Jupiter square Pluto, Sun conjunct Mars, Moon opposite Mars, Moon trine Jupiter... these are all showing us a push and pull pattern. There is a lot of energy geared towards success, but we are faced with tension and impatience. This Eclipse and Full Moon takes place in the sign of Aquarius, lending vision and motivation as you push towards your goals.
These are strong aspects that can be felt for days before and after this eclipse. You will feel your drive return to you, but don't allow the need to succeed to get in your own way.
The Full Corn Moon
This Full Moon is the Corn Moon, also known as the Sturgeon Moon, or the Green Corn Moon.
This Full Moon marks the time of the first harvest and a time of fruition. The results of our efforts will finally be made visible in some way or another.
This is also a time of abundance and accepting the successes that you have been working towards.
Take some time to allow yourself to feel the abundance that is around you!
Stay tuned for the Full Moon Ceremony for just that purpose!
The Card pulled for this turning is Create, which feels like a very fitting card given all of the creative forces at play here.
Aquarius, the Visionary is asking you what you want to create right now. You are always creating something, either through thought or action; this card is reminding you to be aligned to your vision.
Without meaning to, you may be creating parts of your life that you are not wanting, simply by giving them too much of your thoughts and awareness.
Be mindful of your thoughts and visions at this time, as they are playing a key role in the creation of your future!
Last Quarter Moon
The Last Quarter Moon takes place in the sign of Taurus on August 14th. You may feel like your patience and endurance is being tested. The lunar energy is winding back to new, but we are still in the thralls of the Eclipse season and can feel the constant swirl of emotions around us.
You aren't going to be the only one feeling tired and a little bit fed up right now. The sign of Taurus is a practical and diligent one, and you will be asked to embody the nature of this sign in order to keep the peace.
The card pulled for this turning is Boundaries. You might be faced with a situation where your boundaries will be pushed, or you may have to decide what your boundaries even are. It may be healthy for you to draw out your boundaries at this time, and don't budge them for anyone. Boundaries are created in order to help us feel safe enough to grow. Don't be afraid to stick to your guns.
This new Lunar Cycle holds powerful and potent energy. The Moon is the ruler of our emotions and our feelings, and she is going through some major aspects this month. This is to prepare US emotionally. Our emotions are more important than we may realize, so it is very important to keep track of this celestial body.
Have a wonderful moonth ahead! Don't forget to check back on the Last Quarter Moon for Jessica's Quarter Moon Astrology Readings; where she gets even more in depth on the zodiac signs and the roles the planets play as they dance in the sky together.

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
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!
Affectionate, Confident, Gives Love Wholeheartedly
Moon Sign in Gemini
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.
Compassionate, Sentimental, Family is everything
Moon Sign in Leo
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.
Reliant, Strong, Feels best in Untamed Nature
Moon Sign in Libra
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!

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.

Moon Sign in Aquarius
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.

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.
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!
