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 limitations.
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.
Be free.

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!

A sudden ending, shift in perspective or event comes without warning. Eclipse energy can bring very sudden change. However, you see the bigger picture. This is something that was necessary. As this happens you may be presented with many choices. You take charge and move forward on what you want and need. You don’t owe anyone anything. You’re being analytical and pragmatic. A new love offer or new opportunity for emotional fulfillment, or creative endeavor is on the horizon. It’s time to let go of the past and embrace your future. What’s done is done. You may need to forgive and reconcile with someone or they need to do the same to you. In this process someone or something from the past resurfaces for a new beginning.

The Tower: A sudden ending or shakeup.
King of Wands: A masculind passionate leader who moves with confidence and sees the bigger picture.
6 of Cups: Reunion. Nostalgia. Reconciliation.
Queen of Swords: A feminine and analytical leader who listens to head over heart.

Ace of Cups: New Love. New beginning. New opportunity.

Bottom of the Deck- 7 of cups: Many Choices and Options.

Today we enter a New Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Capricorn.   This phase is especially significant in that it proceeds a partial solar eclipse on January 6th.

Remember the powerful moons and eclipses of summer 2018? The energy of this moon will hold the same level of intensity. There will be other aspects to this moon that will affect this energy as well. This moon is expected to pack a punch.

The zodiac sign of Capricorn is practical and grounded. She has little need for the frivolous. She is a hard worker who is ambitious and likes order. Capricorn is a loyal friend and partner. She is funny and practical with a love for art and music, but can be a little bit of a know-it-all and set in their ways. She is ruled by Saturn, which tends to make them very focused and attracted to order.

New Moons are a time to plant seeds and begin something new. With the Capricorn energy’s influence, you may have the grounded hard working energy needed to get something off the ground.  Be careful to not get too bogged down in perfection or knowing everything that could possibly happen.

Eclipses are know for taking things out of our lives and bringing newness and opportunities in. It is the most powerful aspect in astrology- where the Sun conjuncts the Moon. The possibilities are endless. Nothing is off limits. Your negative habits that need to go could bubble up to the forefront.  People could pass on suddenly.  A relationship may reach its expiration. New opportunities could arrive. This is a good time to start a business, project or relationship.

Another aspect to this moon is to the fixed star Vega. It is the brightest star in the northern sky.  Vega is often associated with ego and can make people more kind and peaceful. Vegas loves the arts as well. Vega also can cause people to be overtly sexual or pretentious. Its conjunction with the sun and moon can also bring about a disingenuous energy, hence its association with ego.

Saturn, who rules Capricorn, will have a strong influence bringing about a serious and critical overtone. Saturn is about discipline and responsibilities. This influence can definitely help with any new endeavors to give you the discipline needed to buckle down. Remember to not take anything too seriously, however.

Neptune will also be around this moon. He will enhance spiritual focus, heighten intuition, and with the aspect to Vega, will help the artists and creatives in the room enhance and focus on their craft. Maybe you can make a little money doing that creative hobby? Pay attention to your dreams and prepare for heightened psychic abilities.

Like any New Moon, it is a time to focus on the month ahead, plant seeds for what we hope to grow, and set goals for the future. With the various energies around this moon, take time to consider seeds you want to plant for 2019.  The crop from these seeds will be plentiful.

Each new moon phase marks the beginning of the next chapter.  It is a time to plant new seeds and embark on new beginnings.  It is time to start anew.

Today we enter a new moon phase in the fiery and spontaneous sign of Sagittarius.  The symbol for Sagittarius is the archer- optimistic, focused, skilled, and precise. The archer cannot hesitate, but move with quickness to strike.  The energy surrounding this new moon will propel you forward. There is no time to slow down.  Its time to take a gallant leap into the next phase with a positive and open mind. The shadow side of Sagittarius is a quick tempered and fiery personality.  Sagittarius is known for acting first then thinking later. Keep this in mind in your decisions and actions. Make sure to not act out of impulse.

This new moon will have other aspects to Jupiter that will play on the carefree and playfulness of Sagittarius.  Jupiter is the planet of good luck and wants us to grow into abundance. This influence from Jupiter may push you to learn something new, express yourself in a different way and explore foreign possibilities. It can bring in unexpected good luck and fortune.

The energy surrounding this new moon feels thick and somewhat surreal. It is going to push you to ask big and important questions. Life is a stage. What role do you play? Do you like the character you are portraying? Maybe it is time to audition for a different role.

Thanks to an upcoming solar eclipse and aspects to Mars and Neptune, deep desires and emotions are bubbling to the surface. Mars is an intense energy of aggression and action. Mars symbolizes war and human’s animal nature. Playing with the fire of Sagittarius can create an atmosphere rife for conflict and urgency. Neptune is a planet of spirituality, illusion, and enlightenment.  Neptune pushes us to look within.  Forgotten passions and areas that have been unclear will be pushing you to reach for something new. What is it that gives your life meaning?

With this new moon phase put ideas and dreams into action. It is time to start being true to yourself and living with purpose. It is time to expose your inner desires and aspirations. This energy started having its effects days before the new moon and will hang around for the next few days. Pay attention to what comes up in your awareness and use this energy to your advantage.

We will enter a new moon phase in the zodiac sign of Scorpio on November 7, 2018.  The new moon marks the end of one moon cycle and the start of a new moon cycle.  The energy created when the dark side of the moon is visible creates a burst of energy and spark. New and fresh ideas come to the forefront.  It is a time to plant seeds and embark on new beginnings. With the new moon being in Scorpio and other aspects, this will be one of the most intense new moons of the year.

Scorpio is a water sign with emotions that run deep. Scorpio is mysterious, intuitive and seeks deeper understanding. This energy will wake you up, poking and prodding at your soft and tender spots. What is really the deeper meaning behind your actions? What is really going on in your awareness and reality?

The moon will have an interesting aspect to star Zubenelgenubi which is a fixed star in the Libra constellation. It is named for an Arabic Prince that represents justice. This energy can bring about accusations, conflict, illness, and disappointments.  It can bring about situations where justice is needed and where karmic debts need to be paid.

Neptune also has an aspect to this moon. Neptune can bring about an energy of forgiveness and compassion. This energy will make us ponder ethos, faith and spirituality.

Other aspects to this moon are with Pluto and Venus trine to Mars. Pluto will play on the Neptune energy deepening compassion and contemplation of spirituality. Pluto’s influence can expose truth and where you need forgiveness. The Venus trine to Mars increases a desire for companionship, socializing, and sexual desire. It will create feelings of closeness not limited to romantic relationships.

In summation, this is a deep and spiritual moon. With the aspect to star Zubenelgenubi bringing in possible conflict or disappointments, Neptune and Pluto can bring in a softness to this energy to help ease these woes; providing forgiveness. The Venus to Mars trine can bring us closer to people in our lives through resolving conflict. The moon can highlight what your individual role is in the grander scheme of the universe. Of course there is a darker side to these energies. Feelings of insecurity, self doubt and uncomfortable self awareness will be present. It is up to you whether to harness the positive aspects of the energy or let it bog you down.
