Moon Goddess - Virgo

Moon Goddess - Virgo

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.

Dark Moon Goddess - Pisces

Dark Moon Goddess - Pisces

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?

Moon Goddess - Leo

Moon Goddess - Leo

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.

Moon Goddess - Cancer
Moon Goddess – Cancer

Best evening for ritual: January 10 (Saturday)

Theme: Lining the nest

Saturn comes into play again this Moon, but now the focus has shifted from the pragmatic to the emotional. This is a good time to work for peace of mind and emotional comfort in your immediate environment.

This is a good time for focusing on family or domestic relationships, and perhaps making changes in routines or the physical arrangement of your home to make it more comfortable and easier for everyone to live in.

It’s also a time to be thankful for the safety and security you do have in your home and your close relationships. Show others that you appreciate them by taking little steps to make their places and activities more pleasant.

Affirmations for this Moon:

My home is a place of love.
I care about the small moments of my life.
I make life easier and more pleasant for those around me.
I live in a bright, warm, bubble of light.

Dark Moon Goddess - Capricorn

Dark Moon Goddess - Capricorn

Best evening for ritual: December 26 (Friday)

Theme: Finding Your Discipline

Mercury and Saturn (and, less intensely, Jupiter) are collaborating now to develop a clear recipe for making things work and getting things done.

The Sun and Moon are united now in seeking to make a difference, and Mars is enlisted to help, although his influence is on the wane now. There is an opportunity now, however, to settle into useful habits and basically “get your act together”.

This requires some self-examination and some insight into our own style of working and organizing time. Divination tonight can be helpful if you need a clearer picture of what your daily routine should look like, or what steps you need to chart out on your way to your goal.

Questions for this Moon:

How do I keep myself on track?
What old habit do I need to drop?
What new habit do I need to acquire?
What is the relationship between process and goal?
