Lunar Waning and Solar Waxing

Cs_baby-lambs-farm The last week of this rather explosive lunar cycle delivers both a waning Moon and a waning appetite for other people’s drama and trauma. We are ready to just ‘take care of me and my stuff’ and put everything else in the backseat as we roll along the journey called Life.

Aries is all about me first and attention me. It’s where we feel the surge of individuality and self-will, the imperative of survival and the desire to fulfill our primal needs. Aries represents the first-born and the newborn. It’s childhood innocence, naïveté and the Buddhist “beginner’s mind.” It is also when and where we rush ahead, initiate and pursue our prey. Primitive and primary, Aries returns us to the rush of spring; baby lambs and newborn calves, fragile foals and fluttering bluebirds, melting snow and sprouts of green – everywhere! 

TrideValley There’s a rumbling, tumbling kind-of-thing going on inside as days grow longer and spirits rise. We are instinctively tuned in to solar rays, their angle and intensity affects our body, soul and psyche. Spring has sprung and it’s time to refurbish, refresh and recharge those internal batteries with the push and power of natural forces. Take a good, long look around you. Feel the camaraderie you have with the earth, the Moon, the stars. Touch the ground, breathe the air. Embrace your divinity and know you are here for a very special, unique purpose: to be authentically you!

VenMo5.19.07 So as the Moon wanes and the season waxes, balance the egoic desires to go forth with the calm communion of nature. Soothe the soul with sunshine and feel the inner peace of self-acceptance – you’re exactly where you should be – right here, right now. Be kind and gentle with your inner child, cultivate strength and embrace courage as you prepare for the road ahead. Know your truth and follow your heart. Good luck!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The waning lunar cycle provides plenty of opportunity for self-review and inner process. Take a look at what you’ve experienced, created or entered into lately. Determine your part in what has transpired and decide if you need to make amends, change behavior patterns or simply accept what is. Know the difference between what’s your stuff and what’s their stuff. 

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
Venus and Mercury in your sign infuse you with creative juice and mental acuity. Use your mind in the design and expression of an artistic, aesthetically pleasing environment. Take care of financial responsibilities – finish taxes or prepare extensions – and then focus upon the beauty and bounty of life.  Walk your talk and cultivate grace along the way.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Saturn retrogrades back in to Virgo and touches upon themes of personal security and emotional stability. Take a look at your home and family – where can you clean, organize and restructure environments and relationships? Improvement is the name of the game. Focus on the basics – make your bed, clean house and maintain healthy boundaries.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Lunar light wanes and Moonchildren instinctively recharge and regenerate. Breathe deep, practice restful meditation and associate with people you respect. Look at life and your present situation in the clear light of day and focus on realistic, practical action. How can you improve personal habits and enhance daily routines? Take it one step at a time.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Pluto now retrograde in your solar 6th house of self-improvement indicates that the deepest treasures are buried within and the greatest wealth comes from excavating the gems and jewels of heart and soul. Prepare for an extended spiritual journey as you sharpen metaphorical shovels and open to the unlimited possibilities of the bounty below.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Serious Saturn returns to Virgo for a six-week visit and in the process, reopens the trunk of previous experience and resource. This is when the lessons learned over the last few years kick in and you can rise above the temptations of negative behaviors and compulsions. Pain is felt for good reason; it’s a consequence of wrong-action. Be calm and cool. Do it right.
Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
The waxing trend toward more sober, realistic thinking and doing continues. As you prepare to prune the bush, discard the refuse and get rid of excess, consider your commitment to a daily spiritual practice. Are you infused with love and light or wrestling with anxiety, fear and doubt? Balance is a little bit of both – accept what is, breathe and relax.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Mars – as the ancient ruler of Scorpio – emanates a symbiotic energy of passion and power as it continues moving through dramatic Leo. Utilize cosmic courage and enlightened self-will as you travel cross-country toward the glimmering horizon of relationship discovery and renewal. It’s a journey of emotional healing and love. Vaya con dios y a la diosa. 

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
The ebullient energy of spring invigorates and uplifts the Archer. The promise of new life, greener pastures and broader horizons touches both spirit and soul. Express the love in your heart via positive speech and right action. A critical career review is in order. Take your time to analyze and assess input and output. Balance the equation and discern truth.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Passionate Pluto is now retrograde in Capricorn and will remain so until mid-September. This indicates a prolonged period of reassessment and regeneration regarding personal power and will. It’s imperative to understand that life is a process of co-creation with forces much greater than yourself. This requires surrender and humility. Practice them both.
Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Busy, busy Aquarians thrive on social contact and camaraderie. Enjoy the lengthening days of spring and get out and about. Express ideas and communicate thoughts. Listen to what others have to say. Find out what’s going on in your local community and neighborhood. Beautify your home and improve your workspace. There’s plenty to do, be active and stay fit.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Understanding the power of responsibility is what these days are all about. Balancing personal will with others’ desires makes up the rest of the story. Find a happy place to be who you are and live your personal truth. Understand your part in the bigger picture and do your best to improve it. Let go of emotional attachment to other’s behavior. Life free.
