Moon in Sights | November 10 - December 5 2014



 Moon in Cancer | November 10-12 2014 
Find inspirations through fun-tinted glasses. The Moon is in Cancer and it's time to unlock new avenues for growth and creativity. Sometimes it can be challenging to find new inspirations when we're caught up in a serious 'adult' mentality. By opening our mind to more varied sources of inspiration we can find new solutions to old problems. There is a harmonious trine forming between the Moon in Cancer and Mercury, Venus, the Sun and Saturn in Scorpio as well as between Mercury in Scorpio and Neptune in Pisces, and this is great for our vibes to inspire good relationships with others. We are more open to discuss deep and real issues and start making some big changes in our life. With Mars and Pluto conjuncting in Capricorn, we can be reminded that changes can be stressful, even changes for the better. Be aware that by staying openly attuned with our higher Self and purpose, we can make progress in opening the door to new roads down the line.

 Moon in Leo | November 13-15 2014 
Your inner child is your biggest fan, always supporting, and guiding you to your freedom. The concept of inner child may seem foreign to some, but they are a part of us. They are who we once were, physically, and they're always within us. They are sad when we're feeling sad, and they're happy when we are happy. The Moon is in Leo along with Jupiter, and it's time to get back in touch with our true innate strength. Themes of growth and creativity continue at this time, encouraging us to find new ways to express our individuality - in the midst of daily life. The Leo Moon will trine Uranus Rx in Aries and our creative flow can receive a big boost. With the square to Mercury, the Sun, Venus and Saturn in Scorpio, it may take extra effort to put our ideas together and work out what needs to be done next. Know that we always have the ability to settle things with love and passion. Let go of hard feelings, and be open to let more things into our life that will keep us positive and in high vibration.

 Moon in Virgo | November 15-17 2014 
Raise yourself closer to your dreams. The Moon is in Virgo and it's time to keep going. Perseverance is key at this time, so no matter what happens or how a certain situation may seem at the moment, don't give up. The Moon in Virgo will sextile Mercury, the Sun and Saturn in Scorpio and it's a great time to realign our heart and mind with our deepest vision and goals. With the opposition to Neptune in Pisces, make sure that we are a vibrational match to standards and beliefs that are for our highest good in order to attract the best possible outcomes. And with Neptune going direct this week, that's a likelier outcome. The Virgo Moon will also trine Pluto and Mars in Capricorn, and we can be inspired to arm ourselves with a good plan so that our future efforts can go smoothly. Treat our life like a sculpture or a painting, and with each step we take we add a new element that can breathe life into our heart's true desires. (Photo by Beyoncé Knowles, Virgo Sun)

Moon in Sights | October 14 - November 8 2014



 Moon in Cancer | October 14 2014 
Release fears of the future by breathing out toxic energies from the body and breathing in infinite wisdom of the present. The Moon is in Cancer and it's time to tap into our innate power. Fear comes from uncertainty. Peace comes from taking responsibility of the present. Often, we can lose sight of our sense of direction and purpose when we are in the midst of tension. We get swept away, forgetting that tensions are there to help stretch our soul, make us wiser, and ultimately awaken our true authentic power. It's time to focus on our goals and dreams, and not on our fears and worries. We have the ability to transform the present by shifting our perspective, standing in our power, and summoning the will to keep on paving the path to attract new opportunities into our life.

 Moon in Leo | October 17 2014 
Honour your peace. Only you get to decide how you want to feel, and how you want to treat yourself and others. The Moon is in Leo and it's time to share our creativity! How we treat others is a reflection of how we treat ourselves. When we love and respect ourselves, we don't let other people's negative perspectives get to us. Instead, we do the inner work necessary to ensure that our soul is nourished, and that we bring more positivity into the world. With the Moon and Jupiter in Leo sextiling Venus, Mercury Rx and the Sun in Libra, it can be a great time to reconnect with our own personal path. We have all the unique ingredients it takes to complete the mission that's before us. Everything starts from within. It's time to be the peace we want to feel in our world.

 Moon in Virgo | October 19 2014 
Feel the present. Spread gratitude. ❤ The Moon is in Virgo and it's time to loosen up a bit and be more present in the moment. By stopping and noticing the blessings of life that we often take for granted, we can bring about new healing into our heart. With the Moon in Virgo trining Pluto in Capricorn, it's a good time to look at our ideas and projects from a different angle, to make some changes if possible and to move forward. Know that change is the only permanent thing in life. So whether we have achieved a great deal or not, there are still unending possibilities to be explored. The opposition to Neptune in Pisces can remind us that as we breathe more consciously, we can stay focused and in the present and thus become more receptive to the infinite field of energy and creativity. (Photo by Beyoncé Knowles, Virgo Sun)

Moon in Sights | September 17 - October 12 2014



 Moon in Cancer | September 17 2014 
Your experiences open your mind's eye. Our mind's eye is a part of our divine soul. And as we get more in touch with the light of the soul, through our experiences, we open and awaken our mind's eye more and more. With the Moon in Cancer sextiling Venus in Virgo + trining Chiron in Pisces, we can understand better all the lessons we've learnt through our emotions and find a way to apply our new-found wisdom and knowledge to our everyday life. It's time to let go of our self-judgment and blame, as well as the challenges we've held tightly in our hands. Open our arms, mind, and heart to new life experiences.

 Moon in Leo | September 19 2014 
Self-validate. Be your true self without the need of external validation. We are special and always have something unique to contribute to the world. The Moon in Leo is making a conjunction to Jupiter and trining Uranus in Aries, so we're ready and open again to new surprises, discoveries and insights! With the square to Saturn in Scorpio, it can be another wonderful opportunity to release feelings of heaviness so that we can lighten our load. Let go of any guilt, anger, or blame that may cloud our loving outlook. It's a time to be gentle with our own heart, mind and body. The Moon in Leo is light and playful, which is a great energy to have for the weekend! Keep moving forward with confidence on our present path, and find the joy within our heart once more. (Image: Dior Couture Spring 2004)

 Moon in Virgo | September 22 2014 
As you rise above the little things, you make way for new opportunities to grow. With the Moon back in Virgo alongside Venus while trining Pluto in Capricorn and sextiling Saturn in Scorpio, we can feel more empowered as we walk down the road to our goals and dreams. No matter how long it may take, we have the perseverance and spirit to keep on going one step at a time, moving at a pace that may seem slow but is ultimately certain and steady. It's time to be aware again of the importance of vision in our life. Think about our life and what we would like to choose. In which way do we want our life to develop? Each moment brings different opportunities. Can we recognize and take advantage of them? By listening more to our own intuition, we can live each day with a sense of trust and optimism. Appreciate all that we've done and focus on the road ahead.

Moon in Sights | August 20 - September 14 2014



 Moon in Cancer + Mercury oppose Neptune, trine Pluto and sextile Mars | 20 August 2014 
Cut through the fog of self-defeating beliefs and love your most authentic self! With the Moon back in her home sign of Cancer, we bring our attention back to our home life. It can be a great time to get things done as we find new inspirations on how to spend our time more effectively and delightfully at home. Themes of communication are still quite strong with Mercury in Virgo reaching out to Neptune in Pisces, Pluto in Capricorn and Mars in Scorpio, guiding us to think more clearly and speak more honestly from the heart. We have the mental and emotional capacities to see + speak the truth and are able to move forward with new strength and hope. Pay attention to new people that come into our life. We will recognize them by our sense of familiarity, comfort, and safety.

 Moon, Jupiter and Venus in Leo | 23 August 2014 
Live your light. The Moon is in Leo and it's a time for fun and play! Set aside work for a while if we can. Playfulness, humor and laughter can lift our energy + spirit that we'll return to work with a renewed perspective and heightened energy. Be open to new surprises and insights as the Moon makes a trine to Uranus Rx in Aries. With Jupiter and Venus also in Leo, it's a wonderful time to get in touch with our inner wisdom and light. We know what we can do to get inspired and have more fun and love. Times we spend with family, friends or younger people in our life can provide us with the opportunities to share more of our light and love. The square to Mars and Saturn in Scorpio may give us the uncomfortable feeling of needing to stay more serious and responsible, know that in time we'll get back to whatever it is we ultimately need to do. It's the weekend, after all. What better way to start the week ahead with a bit of fun, laughter and smiles!

 New Moon in Virgo + Mars conjunct Saturn | 25 August 2014 
Choose your comparison wisely. Only you know what you've been through. Happy New Moon! The Moon and the Sun are conjunct in Virgo, marking another wonderful time for a new beginning and a fresh start! What we plant and nurture from this day forward can flourish into something beautiful once the Moon becomes full on September 8th in the sign of Pisces. With Mercury also in Virgo harmoniously aspecting Mars and Saturn in Scorpio, we can find the right mental attitude, along with the drive and the will to work things out in our personal and professional lives. We can also come to the grounding realization that everybody is actually going through the same thing, albeit in different ways - and that we are in truth growing and evolving every day. Mars conjunct Saturn is about looking reality straight in the eye. With Venus in Leo squaring them, it can be a great opportunity to draw a clearer line between what we want vs. what we don't want, what we like vs. what we don't like. And then start taking better care of the finer details in our life, whether regarding health, work, finances, love and relationships. From there, we can move forward with stronger convictions and a better sense of self and reality. Know that the changes we are currently experiencing are guided by our newborn willingness to open our heart to life's deeper wisdom and divine timing.

 Moon, Venus and Mercury in Cancer | 24 July 2014 
Ruling the 4th House in astrology, Cancer is all about our internal and outer home. Where do we feel most at home? With the Moon, Mercury and Venus here it can be a great time to start appreciating where we are today, wherever we may be. To make way for gratitude and peace to come into our life. To find a new sense of comfort in a place we like to call home, or at least become more aware of what we can do to make our self feel more joyful in this very moment. During the next few weeks we can find the opportunity at the right time to experience something very unique with family and friends. What we feel and think about can happen when we take positive action.

How much have we truly changed? How much have we grown? Happy New Moon in Leo! Love and freedom rule this New Moon in playful and upbeat Leo! Ruling the 5th House in Astrology, Leo in our chart represents our freedom of self-expression, creativity, playfulness, and confidence. With the Sun and Jupiter here, the New Moon marks a time when we can no longer be anyone but our truest and most authentic self! Not only because we want to, but because we feel that we need to. Otherwise we'd feel like we are betraying our heart and soul. It's a truly cathartic time for many of us, a time when we can finally open our heart to more people in our life. The Leo sign represents true expression of the heart, so there's really no better time to express our appreciation than this New Moon!

 Moon in Virgo | 29 July 2014 
It's time to get back to work. When the Moon is in Virgo, it's always a great time to put our focus back on our daily life - re: domestic routines, work, exercises, etc. For some of us who are currently still on holidays, it can be a great time to start planning about what we will do after the holidays are over. The Moon in communicative + detail-oriented Virgo is trining Pluto the intense planet in Capricorn and I drew a special card from the Tarot Angel Cards, the card I picked was Do Not Judge; Do you like to judge? Are you aware that judgments kill? Are you aware that judging damages you and others the most? Are you aware that all your judgments about yourself and others are locked in your body? What would it be like to stop judging? Affirmation: What kind of energy and consciousness can I be and what can I do and add to my life at this moment so I can let go of all judgments about myself and others NOW and in THE FUTURE?

28 July 2014

I've come to learn that most of the problems in my life are because of me not expressing my thoughts and feelings clearly enough. Now I know that open, honest and direct communication is the key to more genuine and peaceful relationships. Thank you God for supporting, guiding, and protecting me as I listen to and act upon my feelings. Help me understand and express my emotions with love. Happy Eid Mubarak! Wishing you blue skies, sunny days and happiness along your way. ヘ。ヘ

 And suddenly you know... It's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings. 
Meister Eckhart

Where were we 3 years ago? 2 years ago? 1 year ago? 1 week ago? 

How much have we truly changed?

How much have we grown?

Happy New Moon in Leo! Love and freedom rule this New Moon in playful and upbeat Leo! Ruling the 5th House in Astrology, Leo in our chart represents our freedom of self-expression, creativity, playfulness, and confidence. With the Sun and Jupiter here, the New Moon marks a time when we can no longer be anyone but our truest and most authentic self! Not only because we want to, but because we feel that we need to. Otherwise we'd feel like we are betraying our heart and soul. It's a truly cathartic time for many of us, a time when we can finally open our heart to more people in our life. The Leo sign represents true expression of the heart, so there's really no better time to express our appreciation than this New Moon!

Speaking of creativity, how can we express our self in a more honest and direct way now? How can we feel more comfortable in sharing our truest hopes and dreams with people around us? The Moon in Leo will later trine Retrograde Uranus in Aries, which means that we can finally discover new and more creative ways to break free from our old ways of doing things, or thinking about things. What used to be okay for us may no longer fit our new perspective on life and relationships. We expect nothing but the real and authentic from our interactions, and we'll be able to see how we can bring about more love and honesty into our life. Creative imagination and inspiration surround us when we see the world with open heart and childlike eyes.

Mercury in Cancer is trining Saturn which is now moving direct in Scorpio (after his 5 month retrograde in the sign). We have the mental and emotional capabilities to stay strong, grounded, and responsible. No matter what new obstacles may appear on our path, we will see that we are indeed stronger than we have ever been before. We have evolved so much in the past couple of years, and we can now understand that with stronger and more positive mental vision we can deal with whatever problems/lessons life may throw in the future.

It's time for another journey of self-discovery! To have more faith in our new confidence spirit, and to keep exploring new roads. Ones that we trust and believe will eventually take us to the destination that we've been searching for. Keep evolving and continue moving forward! Keywords; growth, expansion, confidence, radiance, joy! ☆*✲゚*。(◍•ᴗ•◍)。*゚✲*☆

I drew a special card from the Crystal Wind Oracle Cards for whoever is reading this blog post, and the card I picked
was The SeerTrust your intuition. Meaning: You can accurately asses a situation and surmise the outcome.
Prophetic images flash through your mind, dreaming or awake. You already know what to do and
‘The Seer’ reinforces that you are on the right path. You may meet a very perceptive
man, woman or child that will help guide you along the way.

Interpretation: It is a time for you to start tuning in to your instincts – that deepest inner sense of personal truth in
any given situation – and start acting on that truth, moment to moment. You can read the emotions
and energies of other people. More importantly, you are learning to trust yourself
and your feelings. This will lead you to the answers you seek.

There are thousands of agreements you have made with yourself, with other people, with your dream of life, with God, with society, with your parents, with your spouse, with your children. But the most important agreements are the ones you made with yourself.

12 July 2014

 Can you really connect with someone who won't look you in your eyes? It's the same with you and your dreams. Look 
 your dreams right in the eye and dialogue with them. Ask your dreams the right questions like why do you 
 want them in the first place? Why is your dream so important to you? See your dreams for what they 
 truly are. Keep your eyes on your dreams and stay connected to them every day. By doing this 
 your understanding of self will increase and you will become one with your dreams. 
 What you focus on grows so keep your focus pointed in the right direction. 
Mind Power 365

One word that comes to mind when I think of the upcoming Full Moon in Capricorn is potent. Not only will the Moon in Capricorn oppose the Sun in Cancer, it will also conjunct Pluto - and then later activates the Grand Cross aspects to Mars in Libra and Uranus in Aries. For many this can be another particularly intense Full Moon when emotions can run high and imaginations run wild. For the rest of us, this can be a time when we can see more clearly with open heart where our life is heading, and how we truly feel about it. We can look forward to finding a new sense of confidence – regardless of our past fears and limitations. As Plato once said, courage is knowing what not to fear. So there's really no better time to focus on the positive in our life than this Full Moon!

Great questions to ask; What do I need to look at more at this time? What do I need to look away from? Which paths I need to take next in order for me to get closer to my goals and dreams? Because goals + dreams have to start somewhere, and that somewhere is today! ♥~(‘▽^人)

Apart from all the potent energies coming from the Full Moon, we can expect to see another great omen from the heavens. Because the Moon will also form a sextile to Saturn in Scorpio and Chiron in Pisces. This can be another great opportunity for many of us to heal our emotional wounds, so that we can start fresh in the next phase of our life. We just need to remain open to life's possibilities for true healing to occur, and then to surrender and let go.

Speaking of Capricorn, let's not forget that we had a powerful New Moon in this sign back on January 1st. Where were we on New Years eve? How did we feel? And what did we do? For some the memories can come up again at this time because the energy of this Full Moon will be quite similar. Perhaps we can see now that some things didn't go as we'd hoped - although in the greater scheme of things, they did go in the best way that only our heart and soul can understand. Or perhaps things did go as planned, but we're seeing them rather differently now. If we look back, we will see that perhaps we didn't really want all those things we thought we wanted – partly because we couldn't see them as clearly and honestly as we should. Planet Venus (aka Goddess of love and desires) was still in her retrograde period too at the beginning of the year, so the chances of unclarity when it comes to our heart's desires were quite high. Either way, trust that in time the answers will always come to us in one way or another.

In the end, the Full Moon is always a time of culmination, a time when we can see and reap the rewards of our efforts. A time when we can discover new steps we need to take in order for us to grow and evolve. A time when we can release things from our life that no longer serve us, so that we can move forward with new hope. This Capricorn Full Moon in particular can also provide us with insights on how to drop our fears. By dropping fears, I'm not suggesting some extreme examples like our fear of jumping off planes or wrestling with snakes. It's really more about the letting go of our emotional demons, our fear of failure, our fear of success, our fear of the unknown, the future, and to catch glimpses of inspiration that come up in our mind. After all, only we know the answers. What we're ready to do next, and what we're ready to let go. Everyone can say what they want to say, or do what they want to do, but ultimately, we're truly the captain of our soul!

 I drew a special card from The Mystic Angels Empowerment Deck for whoever is reading this blog post, and the card I

 "A master is the one who is awake!" The Archangel St. Israfel has come to help you awaken from your slumber. 
 For you, there will be no more hiding under a bushel basket or hibernating within the confines of your self 
 imposed comfort zone. It is time for you to see the magnificent Gifts that you hold and to share those 
 precious gems with the world around you. Paint, write, create, dance, speak, chant, build, love, 
 encourage, counsel... sing the unique song of your soul! Daily Mantra: 
 I am alive. I am awake. I am that I am.
