Rites of Passage & the Moon Cycle

A rite of passage is an important event that marks the transition from one phase of life to another.

Something that happens in the life that carries us, and in affect transitions us, into new awareness and new life roles.  

Rites of Passage are situations like Birth, Marriage, Sickness, Death, Divorce, New/End of job, New Home, Beginnings/Endings of friendships or family relationships, great successes/great losses, etc.  

When we honor these passages and events in our lives it can greatly impact the quality of our lives and add to living in a more meaningful and fulfilling way.

We can grow gracefully, from one phase of maturity to the next, through our Transitions

These experiences initiate us into meeting with a deeper aspect of who we are. 

As the Great Joseph Campbell said ~ It is “The Hero’s Journey.” 

We are continuously being Initiated by the Spirit of Life through challenges, ordeals, obstacles, heartbreaks, and various powerful “Tests” of who we are.  

It is the Test of Time and marks our character. 

To go through an initiation is to be asked to go through a series of experiences and to pass the “tests” along the way that will transition you onto the next phase or course of Your Life.  

In essence, these experiences (or initiations) will show you who you are in relationship to your life.  

“Pass or Fail” is not always so evident in the moment.  It is mostly about how much responsibility you are taking and how much willingness to accept and contribute of yourself in the highest degree possible. 

When we live with this awareness of the transitional nature of our lives and the cyclical pattern of the phases that we all live through, we are given the opportunity to be intentional with the Rite of Passage moments we are experiencing – to be aware that we are indeed going through something. 

We can learn to recognize “the tests” and harness in on all the potential power and guidance available to assist us through life’s transitions.   By observing:

  1. I am going through a major shift or change.
  2. Therefore, emotions will surface, I will need to release the old and embrace the unknown of what may be coming.

With this awareness, we can consciously cultivate the essences of the energies we want to carry and walk through life with.  

  1. Acceptance of the Process.
  2. Willingness to be Present and honoring what is showing up.
  3. Courage to step into the unknown.
  4. Authenticity to be true to oneself.

By being intentional through consciously honoring what is happening in the moment, and creating ceremonies around our Rites of Passage (with ourselves or in the community) we can contribute to creating more supportive outcomes for the whole of Life. 

Being aware of the 4 Phases of the Moon cycle is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to access guidance and to recognize your own personal Rites of Passage playing out in the phases of your own life. 

  1. The New Moon marks a New Beginning – a release and an opening for new seeds planted.
  2. First Quarter Half Moon marks a Crossroads – a moment of reflection to make adjustments in the “growing process of the seed.”  It is an assessment of action of what one is doing.
  3. The Full Moon is a peak of energy, a fruition where the “seed idea” or project now comes to a point of fullness.  Much is illuminated during the Full Moon time and we are given the opportunity to SEE and to Celebrate what has come forth.
  4. The Last Quarter Half Moon is the next Crossroads period, where we now are given the space to reflect once again upon necessary adjustments before we meet with the next Dark Moon-New Moon time, soon coming.  This time is an assessment of consciousness of what is going on in our awareness around the “Seed.”

When we aim to align ourselves with the Natural Rhythms of Life we come to bear witness to the phenomenal synchronistic patterns at work in Life and in our own lives.  

We can come to a greater understanding of the Oneness and the Unity between all things.  

And the wonder and mystery of Timing can then begin to be received and perceived as an offering of support along the journey.

2017 ~ A Year of Great Awakening and Inspired Creative Expansion

2017 is a Year of Massive Awakening, Creative Expansion, & Radical Shifts in consciousness within as well as on the forefront of the World Stage.

This is the Age of Aquarius.

We are in The Revolution.  WE ARE The Revolution.

From 2012 ~ 2016 we all experienced the profound power of the “breaking down” energies of the “Uranus Square Pluto transit.”
  • Major Confrontations of Self.
  • Death – and – Rebirth sweeping through every aspect of our lives.
  • Truth Revealed and Redefined.

Each moment leads us to the next, essentially preparing us for the next…

As we continue the journey on in 2017, we are now being lead powerfully through this next year by the highly inspirational forces of FIRE and AIR setting the main stage.  

Come 2018 through the monumental planetary alignments of 2020, we will find ourselves working strongly with the EARTH Element, where we will begin to see Life demanding much more Grounding, Stability, and Commitment to the form of our creations.

This is a year that is much like preparation for what is going to be grounded and stabilized during the years to come.  This is a year that is largely defined by playing in the field of  CREATIVE ACTUALIZATION, experimenting, and having, more than ever, an EXPERIENTIAL RELATIONSHIP with your ability to manifest and create your world.  

It is a dance of Fire & Air, asking all of us to move and to create, on these winds of change.  

To bring forth the Heart of Fire, and the Wisdom of Air.

2017 Ushers In:
  • Jupiter ~ the bigger than Life Jovial King, who represents “luck” & “blessings” and always MORE
  • Standing in Opposition to:
  • Uranus ~ the Great Awakener who waits for no-one to provoke rapid transformation and deconditioning

The Goal: Revelations of True-Self

This year the Higher Mind is on Fire and Dancing with the pure abundance of Creative Power and Desire for Expansion!  

The advice on the winds is to harness the energy, spread your wings, and fly.  

Ready or not – here we are.

This is a time of unprecedented acceleration of growth, expansion, and awareness. 

The train has left the station and is full speed ahead!

Please in-JOY the ride!

Enter the Medicine Lodge…

Join the Mother Temple Red Tent Community and deepen your connection with Lunar Rhythms, the Wisdom of the Womb, and Sisterhood.

We are Daughters of Grandmother Moon and she and our Dear Mother Earth, are calling to us to hear their Song and embrace their Wisdom.

Do YOU hear the call?

Now is the time that the Earth Medicine and Lunar Medicine are needed more than ever to be felt and nurtured in our hearts, for the healing of our people, and the healing of our planet.

All we need to do is come with our willingness to do the work by listening to the wisdom voicing through our own wombs and move in harmony with the cycles of Nature.   It is simple and it is profound.

The natural cycles of the Moon are encoded within the very blood of our feminine beings.  The pulse of Nature beats within our own hearts.  We are women and we have come as part of her design, to ebb and flow and change each day through phases of being.  This is Our Nature.

With each cycle she makes, she offers us the opportunity to come into greater alignment.  To come into greater awareness of our own cycles of growth.  With each phase, she brings her gifts, her lessons, her light and her darkness as a reflection of each our own evolutionary path through life.  We too grow, and blossom, and peak in our intensity, and we fade, and cast shadow, and go into darkness to be reborn again in time.

To choose to live life by the Moon Cycles and in union with the Voice of Your Womb is to decide to live a life in devotion to your own personal self-empowerment, to live in awareness of your growth, and to live in honor of your own personal Rites of Passage as you move through time.

To Enter the Healing Quest.

We invite you to journey with us and learn of this Moon Medicine and Womb Wisdom for yourself.

Inside the Medicine Lodge You will be guided . . .

  • Into the understanding of the Medicine offered through the 4 most potent phases of the Moon: New, Waxing, Full, & Waning Moon.
  • You will receive deep Astrological insights and Energy Forecast for the overall Cosmic Weather of this time and suggestions of how we can best co-create with these energies.
  • How to create powerful and meaningful rituals specific to harnessing the energies of each Moon Phase to support and nourish your own growth and process.  You will see the magic happen!
  • How to establish a powerful and everlasting connection and union with your own Womb Space and the Wisdom she has to offer you.  Live from your own self-love, self-care, and personal power.
  • Align your sexual creative power within the seat of your heart and soul.  Honoring the supreme creative power of the Yoni and the Feminine.
  • How to live in harmony with the natural rhythms of the Seasons and the Moon Phases and to come into personal alignment with this dance.  As above so below, within & without.  We are the Microcosm within the Macrocosm.   Mother Earth wants us to dance in union WITH HER!
  • Trust and Listen to your innate Instinctual Knowing.  Read the signs. Powerful Intuition is a Divine-God given gift held by all woman.
  • Re-member the ancient and esoteric wisdom of the Moon and how she lives and breathes within you.   Honor the Goddess within and out.

This is an experiential process of alignment with the cycles of nature in relationship to your own true self.  Healing on many levels will occur when you choose to live in co-creative harmony and understanding with the phases of the Moon.  By consciously integrating and embodying the Divine Feminine essence into every aspect of your being on every path you walk, you are saying Yes to your personal power, Yes to your freedom, Yes to living in your highest creative potential, Yes to peace, love, and honor in all your relations, Yes to your purpose.

 What will I get out of this?

The more presence you are willing to give to the teachings the more you will gain from the experience.  Among some of the offerings you will receive are:

  • A monthly New Moon conference call where Jessica will be presenting the Moon Phase Teachings and the current Energy Forecast for that month.  Christiane Anna will offer a different ‘Womb Wisdom’ Module each month in perfect harmony with the current Cosmic Energies.
  • A group Facebook page where we will be keeping in touch and holding the space throughout the month with support and inspiration.  This is also a place where both Christianne Anna and Jessica will be available to answer any questions you may have about Astrology, the Moon, and the Womb Wisdom.  This is also a place where all sisters can connect and share their own personal stories and experiences.
  • You can expect guided meditations, writing prompts, suggested rituals and practical ways for creating sacred space and honoring the Feminine Temple, deep Astrological insights on all signs, planets, and phases of the Moon, and profound and intimate guidance on Womb Wisdom and the creative power of the Yoni.


Do You Desire . . .

  • A deeper connection with your sacred self and living life as the sacred experience that it is?
  • A greater understanding of the Language of the Stars and to know the power of your own personal communication within it?
  • To live your life confidently by the wisdom of your own inner guidance system?
  • To flow with ease and grace through the light and dark, waxing & waning, phases of your own life?

Moon Diary * Current Forecast ~ Celebrating Pisces

When you begin to live in harmony with the Cosmic Cycles, or simply the Moon Cycle – you quickly begin to observe that your own personal life ‘phases’ are not separate, but in fact flowing synchronically with the very rhythm of Nature herself.
Being aware of the 4 Phases of the Moon Cycle is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to recognize your own personal ‘Rites of Passage’ playing out in the current phase of your own life.
When we tune into the cosmic guidance and the cycles of nature we have the opportunity to come into greater alignment within ourselves and in connection with the whole of life.

As above so below.  Go With The Flow!

We have entered the Season of Pisces.

February 19th – March 20th

It is the last sign of the Zodiac and it is the end of the Astrological Year.

Soon the Spring Equinox (on March 20th) will usher us into the “New Year”, where we begin again our evolutionary journey through consciousness at the beginning, with Aries initiating us through the fresh, impulsive, instinctual, actively engaged, Firey energies.   Like a new baby, life is born again.

For now, over the next few weeks, the Sun and many Planets are all convening in Watery Pisces, the sign of high emotional sensitivities and psychic receptivities.  It is like the Womb of Creation, where we are floating in the depths of the Sea of Potential and Infinite Possibilities awaiting to burst forth into the manifested creation.

As we are presently in the Waxing Moon Phase, building up to this Full Moon (on March 1st), which is inherently a stage of growth and creation, you are supported now in Pisces to actively focus on what needs to be cleared and released from your life, and where you feel you need support, guidance, and help.

We are magnificently created – with twenty-six bones in each of our hands which gives us a mechanical dexterity that the greatest engineers have yet to be able to duplicate.  A small wonder compared to the many miraculous creations of our existence, like Birth, Death, and the countless unexplainable natural phenomena of this World.   It is a miracle that we are alive and that we experience, with incredible perceptive abilities, All That Is!

Pisces reminds us of the necessity and the power of Forgiveness and Compassion in a World where our minds are free to think and create at will and where the Heart and the Soul have been under siege and are deeply longing to be embraced.

Pisces is the last stage of the Zodiac ~ the Wheel of Evolving Consciousness.  It is where we enter the stage of Release and Surrender in preparation for the inevitable new beginning.  Pisces deals powerfully with the “unseen”, but none the less FELT.

We are being asked to be present with our Vulnerability.

To enter the Field of Prayer.

To surrender.  To Let Go and to Open to Being Held.

To acknowledge our need for HELP and Support in life.

Here are an acronym and a prayer by Angela Montano that beautifully offers an acknowledgment that you are worthy of support and are open to receive in miraculous ways.





“I allow my life to be Held


A Love that is greater than my own thinking.

I open to this Love now.”


Blessings on your journey in Vulnerability.


January 31st, ~ Full Moon Lunar Eclipse ~ February 15th New Moon Solar Eclipse

2018 begins with a powerful initiation towards Change with two Eclipses supporting us to break through the “holding patterns”, Release (the past), and step courageously into the Unknown


On January 31st, we have a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse and on February 15th a New Moon Solar Eclipse.

Eclipses have a way of amplifying the already potent energy of the NEW and FULL Moons, which symbolically represent peaks of energy, beginnings, endings, & celebrations.

How this translates into our own lives can be observed by a surging intensity around the deeper issues within our own lives.

Our patterns can reach a peak of expression,  our core issues can surface with  (what feels to be) a vengeance, and the need to recognize and acknowledge the necessity for Change can come on stronger than ever.
Determining how these Moons fall in your own chart will help to shed light on what areas of your life may be most affected by the shifts at this time.

Both the Full and New Moon Eclipses occur in the Signs of Leo and Aquarius.  This is the Axis of Creativity and Expression.

It’s about the personal individual self-expression (in Leo), in reflection to the collective co-creative expression (in Aquarius).

The Moons here in these signs are enlivening and energizing these qualities in all of us ~ Personal Expression and Co-Creation.  How are You doing it? 

The focus is on how we are personally showing up in our own individual expression and how this affects others, the community, the collective, and the whole of life.

Looking at the World Stage, it is clear that this is a very important area to be paying attention to!  It’s time.

2018 is a year that emphasizes Integrity and Authenticity.  We must all do what we can to move into alignment with these important ways of being.  It is becoming clearer that nothing can stay hidden for very long anymore.  The next years ahead of us are very much about “full disclosure”, as we can see now that we are already clearly experiencing this.

So, with these next Full and New Moons, may we all embrace the opportunities at hand to see more clearly, to reflect on the information we are receiving with all that is being revealed, and to have the strength and courage to express ourselves from our hearts in integrity for all of life.  

Be the Change.  

May 3rd, 2017 ~ Half Moon ~ 

We have come now halfway between the New Moon and the upcoming Full Moon (next Wednesday).
It’s now First Quarter Half Moon. Light is waxing ~
G R O W I N G, we are.

We are in the Taurus Moon Cycle ~ Earth – Grounded – Sensual energy.

The Body, Money, our Resources, Our worth and value, S E L F W O R T H. These are our Teachers now.

******* ) ( ******

Mercury Retrograde turns Direct TODAY.
Venus Retrograde turned Direct a couple weeks ago. Things are going to start to feel much more in a forward direction in our own lives.

After May 20th we will be clear out of the “shadow” of both Venus and Mercury.

This is the time when our decisions with our plans and relationships will be much more clear and we will be able to receive and hear with much more clarity, the direct knowing from within ourselves of what’s next in each our lives.


STAY OPEN! This week we are currently closing out an 18-year cycle and beginning the next 18-month LUNAR NODE CYCLE.
May 10th’s Scorpio Full Moon will usher in the beginning of a powerful LEO themed 18-month adventure!

It’s an opportunity for all of us to get deeper in contact with our JOY, OUR CREATIVITY, OUR FUN, OUR LIGHT, OUR LOVE, AND OUR OWN PERSONAL EXPRESSION.

To C E L E B R A T E ourselves and this life experience!

******* ) ( ******

For those of you who are journeying on the “13 Clan Mothers – Healing Quest” with us, we are currently walking with ~


The Taurus Moon ~ She is the Lover, the Sensualist, and the Artist – She speaks clearly from her grounded core –

“I AM in touch with my Senses.”

She liberates herself from the burden basket of others and dwells peacefully in the silence of her own company.

She designs a world based on the strength, the truth, and the beauty of her own personal values.

She protects what belongs to her, with her heart.

She dances out her sorrows, barefoot.

And, dances in her Joy with palms up to the Starry Night.

She is in touch with Nature.

April 10th, Full Moon 

Blessings on this most powerful Libra Full Moon time!

Four Planets in Retrograde during April ~ “A reset” ~ We are being asked to go back. Reenter the Garden of your life and take a good look at what seeds you have planted, and how you have, or have not, tended to the growth.

How has your Garden grown?

In the fullest Light of Libra, she teaches us to Walk Gracefully into the challenges and extreme imbalances of our lives.
To cultivate the Neutral Mind and gain perspective from a centered place of neutrality. Release attachments, release judgment, release “Truths” that are conditions of the mind, let go of the identities that are limitations to the truth of your infinite nature.
In this way, harmony can be reclaimed and we can live once again IN BALANCE with our true nature, and in balance with Nature herself.
This Venus Retrograde Cycle has been a dance with some of our deepest wounds. As she returns to join hands once again with Chiron ~ the Wounded Healer, during this Full Moon time, we are given the opportunity to make peace with our past. Make peace with ourselves and others. To face our wounds. To heal. And to – Self Care & Self Love – this is the only way.
Living by, and as an example is the only way to the healing of our World.

Those of us journeying together on the “13 Moon * 13 Clan Mothers – Healing Quest”,
have been taking up the Medicine of Clan Mother ~ “WALKS TALL WOMAN”.

As we move with the Aries Moon Cycle, which began two weeks ago on the New Moon.
“She teaches us about magnetism and how to use authority and will properly, how to lead through example, how to change life’s situations by taking action ourselves, not depending on others to do it for us.
She teaches us how to be proud of our accomplishments through self-esteem, not self-importance, that the more we refine our skills, the happier we are with ourselves.
ACTIONS ALWAYS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS. We are living examples of our philosophies, we are walking our personal truths.
WALKS TALL WOMAN is the Guardian of Leadership and Keeper of New Pathways. She shows the power of being our personal best and the importance of innovation. The Mother of Innovation.

~ This type of innovation does not destroy the Traditions of the past but rather adds new truths to those Traditions, giving the ancient ways of the Ancestors new growth potential. ~

She is the Mother of Perseverance and Stamina, who teaches us the value of Health, the needs of our physical bodies and use of exercise to be strong, our ability to be graceful and find the point of gravity in the human form. We must be flexible enough to allow others to follow their paths.
We must be willing to drop our fears of taking action. Leading through example by being personally responsible in thought, action, and deed is the way we find the Medicine of Walking Our Talk.”

We are in the three days of the Full Moon. This is a time to RECEIVE. The Light is potent. It moves in us and through us. Be open to the messages of guidance available to you. Be receptive to your own inner guidance that is your most powerful tool and voice of your own.
Allow the essence of the Divine Grand-Mother Moon Light to penetrate and fill you like you are one and the same.

We are one and the same.

Soon the Waning Moon will take it’s course and lead us once again into the Release Phase, and preparation for new seeds, yet Unknown, to birth through the darkness.
For now . . . embrace it all.

FullSizeRender (38)May 4th, 2016 ~ New Moon in Taurus (May 6th)

~ The Three Days of The Dark Moon ~

The first day of the three days of the Dark Moon is actually the last day of the current cycle – the day before the New Moon

  • On the last day of the Lunar Cycle (May 5th), we are in the complete release

The 28-day ‘cycle of consciousness’ is now coming to a close.  The last sliver of light that remains will soon fade as total darkness consumes the night. 

The light of the Moon is like a symbol of our own consciousness and as the last light disappears, we too are releasing our awareness into the void of darkness ~ the unknown. 

This day is about – letting fall away what needs to go. 

  • Remember, whatever you decide to continue to hold on to will be carried into the next phase and essentially add to the ‘pot of ingredients’ that flavors your life. 
  • This day is a good day to let go of habits, behaviors, relationships, etc that you know do not serve you – to begin with, a clear slate tomorrow. 

Giving thanks and saying “fare thee well” with appreciation, is the best way to go!  Acknowledging – all those lessons, experiences, and awareness, came like a blessing to guide you forward. 

~ What follows is an incubation time into a fresh new phase, on the New Moon day (May 6th).  Like a seed, we rest beneath a sheath of darkness awaiting the moment to burst forth and become our potential.  Soon the light will pull us there…

“Will I grow into the Oak Tree I am meant to be”? 

  • What will come out of the darkness is what is discovered in the unknown – over these next few days and weeks.  Questions will become answers and questing will become fulfillment… 

The period of total darkness of the New Moon (before the crescent light) is where seeds are planted (some on a very unconscious level) too soon sprout and be seen and nourished by the light, as the days pass.

~ On the third day of the Dark Moon – the day after the New Moon, we can begin to see the first sliver of the new light dawning. 

  • As we continue to plant the seeds for the theme of this cycle, we can (if we choose) start to harness in on the supportive active energy of ‘growth’ – energy moving forward. 

We have entered the phase of the initiative impulse to create and to build.  Nourishing the soil of your dreams and intentions will feed the life of all you are. 

Like the beautiful Oak Forest teaches us- you like the acorn already are so complete in all your potential. 

There is a powerful Taurus energy now guiding us deeper into our own core of inner resources and our capacity to support our own selves with all the love and beauty we desire. 

Taurus ask us to:

Find the love within.  Find the serenity and peace within.  Find the way within. Be it.

And then share it. 

Blessings on your way. 

FullSizeRender (37)April 25th, 2016 * Waning Moon – Half Moon, + Mercury goes Retrograde

This week sets us off in the phase of the Waning Moon.  After the full light: the Full Moon begins to shed a little more each day.  So is the process within each of us. 

The spark in us that ignited around this past New Moon had its course into a flaming light, and now soon ashes will take over…

The 3 days of the Full Moon brings a peak; a climax – and then the release follows. 

Here we are.

What in you came to a pinnacle point?  Can you now feel the shift?

Now we are in – the shifting energy – from out of growth, to bursting full light over the past two weeks, into the fading of light towards eventual total renewal at the New Moon.  This is the course.

But, New Moon is still 11 days from now. 

For now, it’s a gradual process.  Each day we let go of a little more. 

Until piece by piece, we are “new” again. 

The New Moon seeks to renew our spirit and liberate our consciousness into fresh awareness. 

The Waning Moon (now) leads us there, preparing us with introspection, and rather than the power to ‘create’ like the waxing growing moon, the waning moon – gives the power to DISMANTLE. 

Our own consciousness is seeking to shed and release what is necessary at this point of our transition through time.  It’s simply the nature of the cycle.  Look up to the sky and you will see.

Throughout this week as we head towards the Waning Half-Moon on the 29th, it’s a good time to go with the flow of energy and allow what needs to fall away – fall.  Scattered parts of yesterday is how the picture is supposed to look…dismantling can get a bit messy.  Just watch your step and take your time – is the message. 

And listen for the ‘inner voice’.  This coming weekend Mercury will go Retrograde and that inner calling is about to get much louder for the following six weeks.

Mercury slowing down in the introspective sign of Taurus is a powerful time of getting in touch with deep personal needs and powerful inner resources. 

We’re nearing the time of the next New Moon in Taurus, where solitude and your own inner world will be the perfect sanctuary of support to find your peace and strength to begin again… 

For now, embrace the feedback coming to you from the outside.  From friends, family, signs and The Universe.  It’s very likely it’s one of those very ‘messages’ that will be the direct source leading you eventually into that ‘inner sanctuary’ I spoke of earlier. 

That place within awaits and without a doubt you will be guided.  Blessings on your path. 


April 22, 2016, ~ Full Moon

Ah, the beauty of the Full Moon, that which illuminates the dark ~ The Scorpio Moon is upon us. 

“Death Moon” or shall we say:  “Renewal”? 

Two weeks ago we were set free from the intense eclipse month of March, and now we are mid-way through this new cycle.

New seeds were planted, new intention, dreams, and hopes initiated.  We all participated in such a huge clearing through March, and we have stepped powerfully forward over these past weeks.  However, there is still much of the past that needs to be reckoned with. 

Mars has joined Saturn in their Retrograde cycles, and together the two partnering up like this make for a whole lot of self-reflection and inner contemplation.  As well as, a bit of a slower pace than some of us might like. 

It’s like the Universe has her finger playing with the ‘pause’ button… so the next few months may feel a bit like “two steps forward one step back”. 

Times of contemplation raise questions.    What do you truly desire?  What do you want?  What stands in your way?  What do you need to do to come closer to creating your dreams?

The next couple months will strongly support the answers coming through – IF you take the time to ask…

Facing “Karma” is a big one on the table right now and we’re being given – let’s call it “a 2nd chance” to make amends and to make “right” within and without. 

Let’s face it: we are all like children in this School of Life.

Thankfully, there is this perfect design in operation, and as it is, we’ve now entered “the Grace Period”.  A time where we get to go back and reset some stones we may have carelessly kicked over along the way.   

In the end, no-matter what we may think we can ‘get away with’ in life,  it’s “our souls that cannot be compromised”.

During this week we also have Venus joining up with Uranus for their yearly rendezvous.  This is ‘Love & Partnership’ spending a week with the ‘Rebel Fighter for individual rights’. 

Expect your intimate relationships to take a revolutionary leap in a progressive and “true” direction.  Or another potential is a complete break from the existing conditions. 

Separation from “The Known” is the basic theme being played out between them and within our own relationships ~  all in the name of Love.

Bask in the Light and Let’s keep it ~ All in the name of Love. 

 April 15th, 2016 Waxing Half~Moon

FullSizeRender (33)We are currently 8 days out from the New Moon where a ‘new beginning’ was seeded and the light was sparked once again out of darkness.  New consciousness, new awareness, new projects or fresh direction in life was initiated and continues to grow with the increasing light as we get nearer to the Full Moon.  What was birthed in your life? 

At the half~moon time, we are asked to reassess our current situation and make adjustments where necessary.   It is the mid-point between the New and Full Moon.   With the Waxing Moon, the rhythm of the cycle is a time of ‘action‘.  


  1. create
  2. build
  3. and work – towards the ‘peak of light’  

Utilize all the creative energy and inspiration you can muster at this time! 

After the Full Moon, we enter the ‘releasing stage.’  There we are supported to put more energy into ‘letting go.’   For now – this two week period is all about being in the creative flow and building…

Half-Moons can often reveal a ‘crisis’ in the way you are handling your current affairs.  The waxing half~moon is a ‘crisis in action.’ Something or some way you are doing things may need to be adjusted.  Are you being confronted in some way to adjust how you’re currently acting or being?

“Harvest Time” at the Full Moon is one week from now.  At that time we ‘reap what we have sown.’

Pay close attention to how well you are tending to your garden (or not) and nurturing those little new sprouts that came forth through this past New Moon time, a week ago.

Feed your light within and watch it grow and shine forth! 

The Rebel Moon ~ Full Moon in Aquarius

In genuine Aquarius fashion I feel compelled to burst the bubble of hype around the not so phenomenal occurrence of the “Blue Moon”.  Which simply refers to the occurrence of two full moons in one month.  It is rare as in – it only occurs about every three years or so, but the only reason it is noticed with a meaning at all in our society is because we have agreed with an idea that it is something of a “special” occurrence.  Another perspective, which is what I cant help to see, is that the only reason we have “two Full Moons in one month” is because we are using and basing our calendar of time on an artificially constructed pattern that was actually designed to pull us out of natural “time” and the natural cycles of nature.

We have been mislead for centuries by a system that was issued to bring us out of a natural synchronic order by those ruled at the hands of religious and political agendas.  It is clear we are in a time of chaos not harmony, which is in part a by product of a culture following a standard of artificial measure and being mislead by a false understanding of time.

When we follow the natural cycles and rhythms of nature – the cycles of The Seasons, The Moon, and Planets we give ourself the opportunity to align (or realign) with the natural order of time. 

Living in that way we begin to naturally flow in accordance with the harmonic rhythms of nature, and we naturally become like an instrument expressing a natural order.  We can reset our mind and body clocks and learn to be guided by Universal Time. This is the opposite of being in resistance to the natural flow of life and Natures Rhythms, which is currently the global civil standard. 

The most obvious example of this is the natural biological cycle of woman.  The menstrual cycle is most commonly a 28 day cycle.  Mirroring the Moon cycle ~ 13 Moons in each year.  The number 13 represents continuity like that of the spiral. It has been in many ancient cultures a Sacred number representing deep mystical wisdom. Yet to many still in this day it is feared and thought to be “bad luck” or worse associate with sorcery or evil.  And an even greater blasphemy is that even something as natural as woman’s menstrual cycle itself has been victimized upon with futile attempts to be oppressed, denied, cursed, and turned evil. 

Unfortunately it is innocent woman and girls who have had to bare the suffering of this gross ignorance of the denial of our Natural Rhythms and expressions of Nature.  And we know that what has been feared is the innate power within that is born out of being in alignment with the natural order of the Cosmos and Universal Time ~ that is our right. 

It is my hope and intention on this Aquarius Full Moon that our right to be in natural rhythm will eventually become the global civil standard.   

Yes, in the month of July 2015 we have seen two Full Moons, however the natural lunar cycle of 28 days is continuing on course as usual.  Nothing has changed there.  We are right in perfect harmony with the Phases of the Moon.  None the less, it is always a phenomenal experience to have the Full Moon shining in all its majestic luminosity above us!

Full Moon in Aquarius ~ Rebel Moon

partnersAquarius – is the Self of The Self. It is our own individuality and unique separateness.  Aquarius is the stage after Capricorn (where the Moon was full last month.) In Capricorn we are sensitive to society and how we might conform to better fit in; to have a position there.  After Aquarius comes Pisces and there we are ultra sensitive to the wholeness of it all, and how we are each utterly connected and All One and united. 

But in-between these two states of consciousness lies Aquarius and it is here that we are well aware of the whole, the community, the collective, AND we are particularly focused on how we each carry our own unique essence, that which separates us, and therein the potential to make a difference, to create change, and if necessary a revolution.  This is the moon of rebellion.

The Aquarius Moon shines bright to remind us that we are each here to revolutionize –ourselves. To shine in our creative uniqueness and be liberated in our differences. 

To seek within and see where change is necessary – to Be the change we want to see in the world. 

With the Moon Opposing 4 planets in Leo with Venus Retrograde squaring Saturn – we are so personally in the fires of our own selves and our most intimate relationship dynamics.  Our addictions, and compulsions, and obsessions are coming on strong to taunt and tease us with clear as day evidence of what we are dealing with. 

As the Full Moon shines bright the reality is being clearly spotlighted – who we each are individually does effect the whole like a ripple in the fabric of life. 

The Obstacles to Love is the bridge that Saturn and Venus create together. 

What will it take to get you to other side?  How much do you really want it?  What will you give in return for it?  Will you clean up your act?  Will you stop perpetuating the unhealthy patterns? Will you take responsibility?  Will you express your love and your true self? Will you go through the obstacles on the bridge to your own heart to find yourself or another? 

No true “Hero’s journey” is made without the confrontation of the symbolic “Dragon” – the creature of our spiritual initiations. 

For something given there is always something taken.   

What will you leave behind on the path as an offering, an amendment, a sacrifice to in return receive your deepest hopes, fullest dreams and hearts desire? 

For these are the treasures that await in the Heart of Hearts… that which we are each the keepers of. 

Blessings on the way.
