I’m putting this blog (and its companion website) on hiatus to devote myself to my fiction writing. If you need your Moon Magic fix, the website (www.telp.com) has write-ups for full moons and dark moons through Beltane.
If you’re curious about my fiction writing, you’re welcome to drop in at www.TomLWaters.com.
Best evening for ritual: March 10 (Tuesday)
Theme: Carve out your goals
The energy of this Moon is dominated by the close proximity of Saturn. Together in Virgo, the Moon and Saturn seek to crystallize our creative intentions, giving them focus and character. Venus has lost touch with Mars, but now has a new sextile partner, Jupiter. They fuel our attraction for grand ideas and life-changing projects. The Sun in Pisces is unable to contribute any focusing or narrowing of these visions, but the passage of the Moon near Saturn tonight is an opportunity to tie things down. (The actual time of the Saturn-Moon conjuction is 4:26 pm.)
Use the Full Moon tonight to select one or two things to focus on from out of the cornucopia of hopes, visions, and ideals. Find the symbolic center of your intentions and let it be your guide and frame for the coming month.
Affirmations for this Moon:
I can see the next step.
I take my goals in hand.
I know what to create this day.
Out of many, comes the one.
Best evening for ritual: February 24 (Tuesday)
Theme: Pssions in Perspective
The Mars-Venus sextile from the last full Moon remains in force, and is now augmented by both Mercury and Jupiter, in close conjunction with Venus in Aquarius. The Sun and Moon are in Pisces now, so we are viewing this bonfire through a dark watery veil.
Although desires remain intense and focused, their relevance and endpoint may not be as clear as they were two weeks ago. It’s time to return to the source and find a place for those passions in the larger picture of the cosmos and our role in it.
This may be an unsettling, confusing time, so ask the Moon for guidance through divination, and open yourself to receive the answer without preconditions.
Questions for this Moon:
What is the larger meaning in this moment’s activities?
What is the source of the life that moves me?
What remains unchanged?
What is it like to step outside of time?
Best evening for ritual: February 8 (Sunday)
Theme: Light my fire
This is an intense Moon, where our larger ideals become transformed into very personal, very immediate, and very active realities.
There is a strong sextile between Mars in Aquarius and Venus in Pisces, which could manifest as a strong surge of sexual energy, perhaps focused on someone sharing your vision or ideas, or as a sudden, intense attraction to a new activity or undertaking. Jupiter and the Sun are also in Aquarius, amplifying both the force and the relevance of the upwelling desires.
With the Moon in Leo, there can be a need to receive attention before one can return it. The energy of this Moon can be put to good use if you can find an open channel for reciprocal generosity and reciprocal appreciation. If you focus on a relationship where the flow is one-way, you’ll likely be burned in this heat.
Affirmations for this Moon:
I revel in love and attraction.
I energize my desires.
A bright new light shines in my vision.
I am filled with living flame.
