The Moon is the Embodiment of Communication, Emotion, and Spirit
What is the Moon’s Message to You?
That is the Will and Purpose of This Column
Published Every Monday, which means Moon Day
This week is the dramatic culmination 2018 thus far, whereby midweek you experience the arrival of a rare blue/blood red super moon eclipse. What does that mean? This lunar eclipse in the regal, august sign of the lion, Leo, is when the sun eclipses the moon but in fact ends up shedding more light on the moon, allowing you to deeply experience, feel, and reflect upon where you are at that moment. The key to this full moon is its appearance before and after its culmination, in the signs of Cancer and Virgo, asking you to hold onto what you need, lovingly, while separating from what is unnecessary, the wheat from the chaff, as you roar ahead into 2018, your glorious journey towards your future vision. This week I will be hosting a recap of my initial Tea Witch Astrology Workshop, covering the basics of astrology and also a second session covering lesser discussed components of your chart including asteroids, centaurs, and calculated parts, often times the keys to deep change, understanding, and transformation. Read onto see what the moon has to say about your sign.
Aries, Born 3/21-4/19: There’s a lot of emphasis on your career and social networks right now. That’s good, but remember home is where your heart is. You are the masthead of your ship, but make sure you have a steady place to dock.
Taurus, Born 4/20-5/20: Usually less concerned with the esoteric and spiritual dimensions of your life (why should you be? you possess all of the materials of the earth), focus on your background feelings this week as they are the key to the subterranean river that feeds your roots.
Gemini, Born 5/21-6/20: There’s a lot of emphasis on your higher self—learning , spirituality and all, and your future, especially on a deep, carnal level—that to which you’re passionately drawn. However, rather than solely flying with those impulses, take stock of what you value and hold onto those things for dear life.
Cancer, Born 6/21-7/22: There’s no way around it—you’re really feeling it this week as the moon, your embodiment, moves through your sign and breaks into the lion, Leo, and then into Virgo, the virgin. Hang on for the ride, and hold on, as you will, as you float to your next destination.
Leo, Born 7/23-8/22: You’ll be tempted to roar from the mountain tops, and you will, but remember the lion does best from an august, grounded stance that simply asserts dominance rather than over impresses. Keep your paws on the ground.
Virgo, Born 8/23-9/22: This is a great week for you, Virgo, as you are able to reap the wisdom of the waning moon through your sign. Make sure you enjoy the climax as well, as solely focusing on your collecting and organizing duties will have you missing out on some much needed fun.
Libra, Born 9/23-10/22: Ever the one to fuss about how you’re perceived by others, necessarily, a little schadenfreude won’t hurt your cause especially by causing some necessary trouble around you to make the changes you need emotionally, in your career, and in social networks.
Scorpio, Born 10/23-11/21: This is a beautifully powerful week for you, Scorpio, as long as you don’t make the hard changes you feel necessary. You’re so good at being the undertaker, but this week, shift into a lower gear and let simmer and stew the changes you feel need to happen. Think the turning of a screw rather than imploding a building.
Sagittarius, Born 11/22-12/21: You’re really moving ahead, as the planet of action and war, Mars, just moved into your sign. However, remember that perpetual, forward motion isn’t always preferable. You can shoot your arrows from a static place as well and harness different modes of movement to achieve your goals and aims.
Capricorn, Born 12/22-1/19: You’re valuing the future more so than usual, but the key to the future is harnessing the moment in all its radiant glory especially by honoring the best partnerships around you.
Aquarius, Born 1/20-2/18: Though there is much to be hopeful for, especially with regard to the future, you are the water bearer, and rejoice in your warmth of the present. That will stand you in good stead for your future designs.
Pisces, Born 2/19-3/20: As usual, this could be a magical week for you, Pisces, just make sure to have some sort of anchoring structure so you don’t completely dissolve into chaos.
