This full moon marks a year since I started following the moon more closely for me. It started with me wondering what happened if I paid attention to the moon in my star sign Sagittarius when it wasn’t a full or new moon. Would it have an effect? It certainly did!! Working with the moon on a daily basis over the past year has taught me so much more about myself and has helped me understand so many experiences in my life with this added perspective. The more I moon-watch, the more I learn and can bring into my life. More recently I have been paying close attention to the sun star season we are in too and am considering extending my moon healing programme to incorporate the sun, moon and stars. Every cycle we are in affects us in our lives more than we can sometimes be aware of.
This full moon is in Aries at the same time as we are in Libra sun star season. So there is a mix of firey pushing forward at the same time as still the need to remember to stay in balance.
This new moon is an interesting one as it is in Libra coupled with Mercury Retrograde in Libra too! So we have a super double Libra effect going on! This makes the Libra aspect of Balance all the more essential right now. Also important is nitty gritty details which may need checking carefully at the moment because of Mercury Retrograde playing tricks.
You may be finding you’re having to balance a lot, perhaps it is a juggling act! But finding your own key way to find balance will help you thrive in whatever you’re doing.
But remember you need balance to make things balance! You can’t create balance in a one-sided way (imagine a seesaw, or the Libran set of scales, one side heavy does not lead to balance). Also beware of getting too detailed and obsessive about getting into balance. That’s an oxymoron: obsessive balance.
I’m excited to say I saw my first ever shooting star a few nights ago!! 🌠 It was such a magical, peaceful, soft energy!! Really beautiful as it wiggled across the sky! There were so many stars out on this almost clear, warm summer’s night! But no moon in sight as we headed towards the new moon, and wherever that magical crescent was, it must have been hiding behind a little cloud. I thought I would bring some of this shooting star magic into my moon healing for you all too! ✨🌠✨
I have been writing my guidance for the moon again! ✨🌑✨
Well there was definitely a sting in the tail of the Scorpio lunar eclipse two weeks ago which many experienced! I hope since then you have been able to repair and let the ripples wash away, and find new strength and enlightenment as a result! If you are needing help working through changes that suddenly occurred for you, and wondering about guidance for your steps now, please let me know. I’d love to help ⭐
I have been writing for the moon again and this new moon in Taurus is a special one! It is the second new moon in April, making it a Black Moon, which is unusual!! And it is also a partial solar eclipse too
Alongside this there is also Mercury Retrograde in its shadow stage which can be a time for things to get a little chaotic regarding technology, communications and plans, etc. I have learnt with this eclipse that in a year we generally have 4 eclipses in 2 star signs. This year the lucky star signs are Taurus and Scorpio!
Although we won’t see the eclipse here in the UK, it can be felt energetically and spiritually everywhere. Wherever you are in the world.
February’s full moon is usually called the Snow moon. This dates back to the Native Americans who originally named the moons based on what was happening around them in nature at the time. February was generally a time of heavy snowfall. It brings to mind the image of a full moon shining brightly in the cold wintry sky, with a beautiful landscape of a sparkling snowy blanket beneath.
Beautiful snow but difficult conditions for the Native Americans who found it hard to hunt during this weather. So thus the February full moon is sometimes called the Hunger moon too. Another name is the Storm moon, and it is also known by the Cherokee tribe as the Bone moon. This is interesting to me as there seems to be a recurring theme in those I heal at the moment regarding bone healing!! And I even started an article the other day about bone healing, which is an ongoing project.
There is much of the energy of the scarcity of food in winter months, for those living off the land, in history and in present times, and for us humans who purchase all their food from shops, there are some foods that just aren’t readily available even now in Winter in modern times, especially during the global pandemic. And think of the animals in nature who all require the usual sustenance but who struggle to find food this time of year. That deep snow can cause hunger for many, humans and animals, even those who purchase food from shops can be snowed in or have food shortages at the supermarket!
