In the wee hours of February 19th we will enter a Full Moon Phase in the zodiac of Virgo. This moon is considered a super moon, because of the earth’s proximity to the earth. The moon will appear large and bright in the sky (assuming its not too cloudy to view).
This moon will not only illuminate the night sky, but also bring into focus areas of our lives that need de-cluttering and reorganization-areas where the heart and mind are scattered. Where our emotions need balance.
With this moon being in the zodiac sign of Virgo, there will be an earth based pragmatism to this moon. Virgos are one of the hardest working signs of the zodiac sign. Virgo is also a thinker and highly critical of themselves and others. You may find yourself doing an inventory of everything in your life- including your thoughts and emotions.
This moon will carry with it a burst of energy and motivation to re-work and organize goals and plans that need fine tuning. You will get the clarity on what you really want and what steps to take in getting here.
Earth energy-money, stability, tangible items will be in review during this moon. Spending problems, needed financial moves and utilizing available resources will be highlighted. The future expansion of resources will be part of this as well. What practical steps are needed to move forward?
The energy around this moon will also bear a sense of compassion and loving feelings. It’s time to let go of expectations and attachment to certain outcomes and how we want life to be. Things will feel as if they have come full circle and greater understanding obtained.
There will be a quiet recognition of problems and what needs to be done to resolve those problems without any thought or conscious deliberation on what direct action is needed, thanks to Mars-ruler of action, aggression, and war. You will just get it done without much forethought. You might also feel rushed to move or speak your mind in an aggressive way.
Neptune will have an aspect to this moon creating a dreamy and whimsical feeling. Its a time to indulge in dreaming big, but also seeing a clear way to achieve your dreams- utilizing Virgo energy. Neptune can create a fog around communication and situations. Things may seem differently than they appear. Be careful if you’re gullable. It will be prudent to listen to your intuition and not move out of a place of fear and anxiety, which can be heightened by Mars. There might be an over-confidence, over-extending, and over-promising with a slight detachment from reality. The sun moving into Pisces will also add to this dreamlike vibe.
There will be an aspect to Mercury, since it is about to go retrograde in early March. The shadow period of Metro retrograde is here- hold ups, important communication and possible miscommunication will start around this time and culminate by the end of this Mercury Retrograde. Also, Mars can add to ruffled feathers. Pay attention to what bubbles up now as it will come full circle by the end of the retrograde period. You’ll see why certain things are at a stalemate.
With an aspect to Pluto, there is a level of death and rebirth to this moon. A feeling of shedding on old skin or completing a spiritual and practical lesson will add to the feeling of coming full circle. You may also feel a deeper sense of connectedness and flow with your world- also playing on Pisces energy.
This will be a powerful moon and emotions will run deep-setting events into motion that could change your life’s direction. This is a very active time in astrology with intense energy. Pay attention to common themes and synchronicity to know what to take in and leave behind during this phase.

On January 21st we will enter a Full Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Leo. This month’s Full Moon is especially significant as it coincides a full lunar eclipse. Also, due to the proximity of the earth to the moon during this moon phase, the moon will appear red in color-a blood moon. Other aspects to this moon, including Uranus, Mercury, Venus and Jupiter, will give this moon a powerful punch.
Full Moons are about culminations and reaping the fruits of our labor. With the eclipse happening alongside this moon phase, there will be a focus on intimate relationships and partnerships. You may feel more emotional and sentimental than normal. It may seem like there is no reason to be sad, yet you feel a touch of the blues. Also, eclipses are known for removing people, places, and things out of our lives. Typically this change is sudden and without warning. Sometimes connections that are waning fully fall away during an eclipse. Conflict can arise that will lead to a dissolution of a connection as well.
Leo represents the individual. Leo is a leader and charismatic. He is represented by the lion in the zodiac and has a persistent spirit. Leo enjoys the limelight and tends to stand out. Leo can be a bit jealous and possessive and have a defined sense of self. Leos are the most egoic of the zodiac.
The sun will have just entered the opposite sign of Leo, Aquarius, when the Full Moon phase begins. Aquarius is about the collective, about society. Aquarius is more focused on groups and social connections. Aquarius also tends to be a bit rebellious and is about testing the established norm.
There will be a focus on your role as an individual and how your individual role adds to the collective and your greater purpose this moon. Uranus’ aspect will play on this polarity that Leo and Aquarius will create. Uranus will beg the question-Who are you? It’s time to take off your mask. There will be a focus on self authenticity and living within your truth, and what is in alignment with your values. If you have been living in disalignment with who you are, those things will likely fall away or be highlighted. People that are no longer in alignment with you, could likely fall away.
Now with Mercury being in the mix, communication will be a focus. There will be a focus on interrelatedness and how you communicate with those around you. Are you deepening your bonds or pushing people away with your relationship style?
You may also be focused on home and what home means to you. This can be who, what, where feels like home. You may want to re-decorate or pick up and move. With Venus hanging around there will be focus on aesthetic as well when it comes to the home.
During this period, Jupiter and Venus will be meeting in the sky. This is an incredibly fertile time. If you are trying to conceive, this could be the lucky month. If you are not wanting to conceive, you may want to be extra careful. This can also be a keen time for romance. This may be a good time to get out there and mingle if you’re single. If partnered, you may feel a deepening bond.
The blood moon will be most visible in North America and parts of Western Europe and Africa. The energy around the moon will start Friday the 18th and probably peek on Tuesday the 22nd. People can act strangely during eclipses. There can be an intensity among people and people may be extra sensitive. Be mindful of your interactions and not to take things too seriously.
Endings come to welcome in new beginnings. The end of a phase or cycle has reached its inevitable conclusion. However, new opportunity is around the corner. With this breath of life and newness, you may be presented with many options to choose from. Be careful with your selections. Some of the choices may not be all what they seem.

Today is the New Moon.
A time to set intentions.
So that you may shift in ways beyond your wildest dreams.
My dear, you have made it. This feeling. You are standing on the top of this mountain. The mountain of 2018. You’ve made it to the top.
Take a look behind you and see all that you’ve accomplished. Each ounce of pain. Each ounce of space you dipped out of your comfort zone has prepared you for this moment right now.
This moment of freedom.
Release any attachments of anything that still holds you back.
You are free.
You are free Now.
What do you want in your life Now?
Release the energy of 2018.
You are stronger now.
You are free.
Last year, you had to do less. You had to release people from your life who weren’t serving your purpose. You had to do that even though it broke your heart. Even though you felt that pain so deeply in your heart space. It was preparing you for now.
You had to clear that all out so that you could see just how much these people and things wouldn’t fit in your life now.
Your soul wanted more.
Your soul wanted bigger and greater.
Your soul knew you couldn’t hold onto people, places, jobs, etc.
Your soul needed that space to be empty for a moment so that you could be open for this new energy.
So that you could finally feel free.
Perhaps you are still releasing.
This is perfectly okay.
Wherever you are in your process is absolutely where you need to be.
You are enough exactly as you are.
The question now is how do you want to Feel now? What do you want?
No ideas that don’t feel right.
No more living to please someone else.
This is your life.
You are creating this life and why would you create anything less than what you deserve?
And don’t you know you deserve the moon, the Stars, the sun, and the whole galaxy?
So here you go.
If you ever needed permission, allow this to be it.
Listen to your soul.
Your soul knows exactly what to do next.
You are love
-Channeled Message by host Amanda Jay
This past Saturday we attended a New Moon Circle celebrating the New Moon in Capricorn and partial Solar Eclipse. The event was hosted by Amanda Jay of Sacred Moon Spoon and Jodi Doidge. Amanda is a Tarot Reader, Astrologer, Reiki Master, and Reflexologist-using these methodologies to assist in healing and wellness. Jodi is a singer/songwriter and lightworker. The event took place at Maeva Movement in East Nashville.
It was a beautiful evening of fellowship and spiritual connectedness. The circle opened with the above channeled message. It was a wonderful way to set the intention for our time together. After the reading of the message, everyone took turns around the room introducing themselves and sharing their stories of how they came to be at the New Moon Circle. We then listened to a talk about the significance of the moon phases and the moon’s significance for women and feminine essence and being. The hosts gave us time to write our intentions for this moon phase- what we wanted for this month, this year and what we want to welcome into our lives. The circle was closed with a salt fire practice where salt is set on fire. This practice cleanses the energy space and releases our intentions to the divine.
The energy of the meeting was welcoming and safe. It was heart warming to encounter so much openness and vulnerability among a group of mostly strangers. Many told stories of addiction, of abuse, and struggles of pain. Others discussed a troubling 2018 and hoping for a new beginning of 2019. Many simply want to deepen their spiritual practice. We made new friends and connections. There was a definite sense of community. We definitely plan on attending further Moon Circles.
A Full Moon Circle is scheduled for January 20, 2019 from 7-9PM at Maeva Movement in East Nashville. This is a great event if you would like to expand your existing moon phase practice, want to learn more, find community to celebrate these phases, or to simply connect with likeminded souls.
Be sure to check out Sacred Moon Space and hope to see you at the Full Moon Circle!
