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.

Burrough’s message, however aggressive, is raw and sincere. As a Codependent in recovery, I know the art of being too nice and keeping someone around just to have someone around.

As my healing has progressed, I have gained confidence and love of myself. Flippancy has become less and less prevalent.

Listen, If I commit to you, I’m all in. I’m invested. I want to see you reach your highest potential. I genuinely love you and want to see you at your happiest and healthiest. I cannot be this type of friend or partner to a large number of people.

Dating around has become difficult, because I can’t invest in getting to know and develop an emotional connection with more than a couple people- tops. At this point in my life, my energy is too precious for spaceholders or blaze.

-Maybe you’re so afraid of having no one, you keep friends that don’t really match your values. “Oh, I’ve known this person forever. We’ve had such good times together. They have been such a good friend to me.” Yet you keep someone in your energy that currently mistreats you.

-Maybe you placate people that you don’t like deep down to save face.

-Maybe you blindy agree to whatever people in your life do or want, irrelevant of your own needs or wants. You accept literally anything.

-Maybe you entertain a lover, because you like their attention. Yet, you don’t genuinely care for them. Maybe you know they care for you, but you give them breadcrumbs so you can have their attention whenever you’re feeling low or no fish are biting that you really want.

-Maybe you’re trying to make someone love you, who could not care less.

Love yourself more. The above is two faced. Its fake. How can you give what you really care about quality attention if you’re giving energy to what doesn’t?

Its okay to be selective. Have a curated life. Be confident enough to grab a hold of only what you really want and okay if it doesn’t grab back. Its also okay to say no or change your mind.

Fuck ambivalence.

On February 4, 2019 we will enter a New Moon phase in the zodiac sign of Aquarius. This moon follows the powerful Full Moon Lunar Eclipse that occurred at the end of January in Aquarius’ opposite sign, Leo.

Aquarius is an air sign. They tend to be a little rebellious and like to go against the accepted norm. She is very caring and humanitarian. Aquas also tend to be drawn to the mystical and esoteric. She likes attention and the spotlight, much like their opposite, Leo. She also can be bored easily and tends to be a little restless.

Leo is a sign about the individual. Aquarius is a sign about community, society, and the collective. There will be a focus on who we surround ourselves with, how we connect to others, what community looks like to us and how we can connect with our community.

There will also be an aspect to Mercury in this moon, who rules communication.  Communications will be another theme of this moon. You may want to consider your communication style and how this is hindering or assisting you towards your goals.

Mercury will have a sextile to Jupiter during this moon phase creating fertile ground for important conversations and positivity. It may feel easier to express yourself and have a sense of being understood. This may be a good time to speak out on a topic or issue that concerns you or ways to better your community.

Saturn will create a sextile to Neptune bringing a focus on hard work towards material gain and deepening spirituality.  This could be a time of a renewed mediation practice or starting one. Maybe you feel a pull towards joining a specific faith or life philosophy.

New Moons represent beginnings and planting new seeds. During this moon, it is a good time to enter new partnerships and begin a new phase of deepening budding connections. This moon phase may be a time you make important decisions about who you surround yourself with and whether those connections are in alignment with your future and values as an individual.
