Full Moon in Sagittarius: What It Means & How To Harness It’s Energy

The Full Moon illuminates the struggle between logic and intuition/faith. The brightness of the moon in the sky is symbolic to our own lives. What exactly does each moon cycle illuminate in your life? The new feelings exposed by this are often emotional ones that come bursting forward from deep within our consciousness.

The Full Moon:

Full moons are like the peak point of energy in a cycle. Often on a full moon we can see things manifesting in our lives. Full moons are our opportunity to reap what we have been sowing and harvest the efforts of our work, but this full moon is slightly different

We experienced the second full moon in Sagittarius on May 21st with the sun in the opposite sign of Gemini. The last full moon in May was also in Sagittarius. Having two full moons in the same sign is very rare and is likely to present some new opportunities in our lives. For instance; the Sagittarius full moon presents us with the opportunity to take another step in, expand our underrating of, and find greater meaning in our lives. Continue reading

The Connection Between The Moon Cycles and Your Mood

The lunar cycles have been closely followed and worked with in many contexts throughout history, and all over the world. The moon influences the ocean and its tides, the growth of fruits and vegetables (in a biodynamic farm, planting is done in accordance with the lunar and solar cycles), as well as our own bodies and minds.

If you think about the influence the moon has on the tides, it makes sense for it to have a powerful influence over us too since we are mostly made of water as well. But can the moon have an influence on our emotional and psychic body as well?

Here is a breakdown of the most significant phases and how they may impact our mood and our actions. Make some observations over this next lunar cycle and see if you notice any patterns and connections between the lunar cycle and your feelings.

New Moon

shutterstock_181859510The new moon is the beginning phase of the lunar cycle, when seeds are planted and intentions set.

The new moon carries a fresh energy and potency, one that may spark a clarity of purpose and being within us. This sky is darker at this time, turning us inward to our own creative light.

Darkness is associated with the divine feminine, with seeing the unseen, and heightened psychic ability. The new moon is a time to tune into your inner messages and the frequencies that want to connect with you. To cultivate these manifestations, set aside time for an intention-setting and a new moon ritual to honor your intentions for this new lunar cycle. Continue reading

Lovers on the Cusp: Everything You Need to Know About Zodiac Cusps and Dating

Have you ever noticed that folks at the beginning or end of a zodiac sign express their sign with a different flavor? The days right at the transition of a sign are called “cusps” and while not all astrologers agree that the cusps are real (some say that your sign is your sign, period, regardless of the day) it’s undeniable that those clustered within the cusp days seem to have their own unique quality.

They may not be your typical Scorpio, for example if they’re born on the Libra or Sagittarius cusp, the Libran cusp being more diplomatic and intellectual, and the Sagittarian side more fiery and independent. They are still at the core a Scorpio, but with a twist, you could say. So what if you’re dating or crushing on one of the mysterious cusp types? Let’s take a look at how they do as mates and lovers.

Pisces-Aries (March 18th – 22nd) astrology

Ooh, fire + water = steam! Pisces and Aries are two of the most different signs in the entire zodiac, so this cusp blends the extreme sensitivity of the fish with the powerful courage of the ram. This makes for an exciting and somewhat unpredictable lover. What they lack in reliability can be made up by being creative and visionary.

This cusp is definitely a sexy one!

Their partners may find them complex or even a bit selfish, but the appeal of their uniqueness helps to balance that out.

You can win the heart of someone on this cusp by being both vulnerable and courageous. Either take the lead or be highly adaptable, but never just stagnate in the middle, or complain about circumstances with these cusp folks. Romantic gestures are treasured!

Aries-Taurus (April 17th – 21st)

Chalk it up to the blending Taurean sensuality with Aries boldness, but natives of this cusp are not shy about going after the object of their lust, no matter the odds. They are also the most likely of all the cusps to be attracted to people who are already taken! Or unavailable for some other reason. Continue reading

6 Important Things To Remember When Loving A Virgo

As a Virgo, I can tell you that the majority of the astrological assumptions made about us are bang-on. I’m normally not one to jump on the bandwagon of descriptive personality traits, but I’ve caught myself nodding my head in agreement over the commonly mentioned characteristics- controlling, critical, obsessive, and a bit overly-honest. These traits make relationships with us very interesting, and knowing how to handle these traits will undoubtedly improve the bond between you and your Virgo partner.

1. Unpradictability is a No-Go
Virgos prefer their life to have some semblance of order and routine. While we can have moments of spontaneity, most of the time we want to know there is a next step, what it is, and how to get there.Romantic-Relationships

If you offer to take your Virgo partner or friend out for dinner and they decline, it isn’t because they don’t love you or don’t want to go, but rather they have other things planned ahead already.

Keep in mind, changing plans isn’t easy for a Virgo because of how much they schedule for themselves on a daily basis. Loving a Virgo means you need to allow them to find stability where they can, and as an Earth sign, stability is very important.

2. Perfectionism vs. Improvement
A common word found in descriptions of Virgos is “perfectionist.” I can’t whole-heartedly agree with that, and would say we are more “improvement-ists.”

It might come across like your Virgo partner is nit-picking, or trying to make things perfect, but what they are really doing is finding ways to improve their life, and yours. Virgos find joy in being useful, and will show their love by helping you in many different ways (even ways you may not realize).

Pisces men and women can be slippery fish!

They are full of great mystery, and their emotional depths run deeper than the ocean itself, but once you get a handle on them you will never want to let them go! This is because the Pisces are one the most soft, soothing and amiable signs in the zodiac.

Art Print – Pisces by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law

Pisces have a tendency of putting others needs ahead of their own.

While this can be admirable, often times a pisces will sacrifice a little too much, leaving them feeling like they have been taken advantage of when others can’t match the same level of generosity.

A pisces will easily feel slighted, and this resentment can manifest into cutting people out of their life entirely, leaving the other party puzzled as to what exactly it was that “they did wrong”.

9. They are escape artists

When you turn up the heat, the fish has a tendency to jump out of the water….

While a pisces is naturally gifted in social situations, and their calming demeanour can be very useful when coaxing others “off the ledge”, when the spotlight is turned around on them in a negative connotation, they turn into magicians and disappear faster than you can say “abracadabra”.

8. They are extremely sensitive

A pisces will immediately show you respect and they expect that you do the same. They have the softest hearts of all of the signs in the wheel, and they don’t understand those who purposefully look to inflict wounds on others. The golden rule should always be applied when loving a pisces, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all”.

7. They are intuitive

This water sign is naturally gifted when it comes to listening to their hearts. They understand that their intuition stems from feelings generated at the heart centre and they hear and feel these subtle notions with ease. The pisces struggles most between what they know and what they feel, which causes them to be easily conflicted and left all too often feeling like they are torn apart inside.

6. They can take “a lot of punches.”

pisces_by_faceless_fantasy-d2yli5ePisces never fail at finding themselves in sticky situations, I mean lets face it, their hearts are so open that it can take them down some rough roads.

There actions can be viewed as irresponsible to others, especially after they’ve been dragged through the mud.

While a pisces is known to carry a lot of guilt (specifically manifesting in tense shoulders) they will continue to repeat the same cycles over and over until they can learn to no longer let themselves be a punching bag for others.

5. They have humility

Every other sign in the zodiac struggles with this, except for a pisces. A pisces has a higher knowing, either conscious or unconscious that allows them to be exceptional resiliant in terms of their own pitfalls and short comings. They understand that nothing should be taken too seriously, and while they are known to hold themselves to a high standard, they also know that nothing in life is worth being so hard on yourself for.

4. They are soothing

No other sign in the zodiac can match the calming vibration of a pisces. They are the ice to your fire and the softest place to land. Bringing people down from a high emotional state is their speciality. They are smooth tongued and even smoother when it comes to sweet talking someone to get what they want. ;)

3. They get bored easily

A pisces has a hard time when it comes to the mundane, every-day schedule. They feed off excitement and liveliness and are always on the go. Alike to a crab, they can’t get enough of the social scene, live music and large crowds, especially if it means avoiding the tired old responsibility of homely duties. To keep a pisces in your life, you need to keep it fun, spontaneous and fresh!

2. They hold comfort above all elsepisces

Pisces men and women saturate themselves in comfort. They appreciate the simple pleasantries of nourishing their bodies (especially their feet) and will indulge in regular massage, acupuncture, chiropractic and nutritional coaching to name a few.

A pisces appreciates things to be neat and tidy, but loath doing the dirty work themselves.

1. They love to be inspired

Pisces have keen senses when it comes to the magical and mysterious. They will swim as deep as you will lead them. They can be highly impressionable and are always looking for a teacher who will inspire them to think beyond the norm. Forward, out of the box thinking is impressive to a Pisces and will earn you their admiration.
