New Moon in Leo

On Saturday, August 11 the New Moon is in Leo "the sign of all things Mane Tossing and Being Seen," according to Jacqueline Gates.

April Elliott Kent writes that the New Moon in Leo and a Solar Eclipse. "with the Sun and Moon square Jupiter in Scorpio--the impulse to break with the past and hurdle toward a new adventure is at least as strong as Leo's desire to bloom where we're planted."

Gates suggests using the Dark Moon days (ie a few days before any New Moon) to take a few days off "from the usual hullabaloo to do some intentional and strategic resetting." Kent offers that breaking with the past can be very liberating.

At this New Moon, we have a chance to make changes that really mean something.  So let's clear out and clean and reset.

What if you take a few days off from the usual to do some intentional and strategic resetting?

When is the last time you checked your cosmetics? This would be a good time to check. Do you have some past their best-by date? It may be time to ditch the ones that are looking old, or are out of style. The lipstick colors have really changed in the last couple of years.

Make a list of the new items you will need to replace.

A Day of Balance and New Beginning

Today is a day of Perfect Balance! The Equinox, the Light and the Dark, the Yin and the Yang in perfect balance within and without!

Today we have a ONCE IN A LIFETIME Rare Convergence of Cosmic Events!

I read at Mystic Mamma a "total Solar Eclipse coinciding with Northern Hemisphere's Spring Equinox and Southern Hemisphere's Autumn or Fall Equinox hasn't happened since 1662 and will not happen again until March 20, 2034. (WOW!)  And an Equinox and Solar Eclipse coinciding with a Super Moon?  Not again until 2053!"

A true day of beginnings. A new moon, a new season, and the moon moving into the beginning of the Zodiac and in the midst of this a total solar eclipse! It's all new.

  • The SUPER Pisces New Moon (it's a SUPER Moon!)
  • The Total Solar Eclipse (the only Total Solar Eclipse of 2015)
  • The March Equinox
"This is such a powerful triplicate of events! The Equinox, the Light and the Dark, the Yin and the Yang in perfect balance within and without, is amplified by the Energy of a Grand and Total Solar Eclipse, bringing us into the Dark from the Light to go within, to purify, to release and to return radiantly into the Light!"  ~Big Sky Astrology

This is a very significant and energetically important day...It's time to release the old and design and embrace the new.

Pisces (the place of endings) New Super Moon carries the same theme of letting go and then new birth and renewal following right behind in Aries making all things bright.
"Pisces energy encourages us to dream and vision what we can contribute to create the world we wish to inhabit." ~Mystic Mamma
This is a time when we are inspired and energized to make real our dreams and wishes.  The Super Moon (moon at it's closest point to Earth) makes this a strong New Moon. The Solar Eclipse amplifies the energy of this New Moon. Read more from Amy Flynn

Interesting Fact about the Total Eclipse:
"...the total portion of it will only be visible to those at the north pole. I read a science article online that said after 6 months of polar night (with the sun staying beneath the horizon all day long for 6 months)- the eclipse will be the day that the sun first appears in the sky and it will get fully eclipsed by the moon, which will bring a few minutes of darkness across the land." ~Divine Harmony
Do you know the story about  Demeter? "Each Spring Demeter (her Roman name Ceres) joyfully welcomes back her daughter Persephone from the underworld and the earth begins to turn green again. The sun returns and as the days grow longer, the warm winds begin to blow."  I have an article about her story. Read the story Here
I read that this portal of energetic support will last for the next 6 months. Post in the comments what new beginning are you planning? I would love to know what you are up to.

Virgo Full Moon

Moon opposes Sun at 10:07 am, Mar.5, 2015

As I've said many times before, I understand very little about astrology. I do like to read what April Elliott Kent writes as she usually puts her knowledge of astrology into stories of insights about her own life experience and then extrapolates from that a wee bit of coaching from the lesson she has learned.

This month she writes about the Virgo Full Moon with the sun in the opposite sign of Pisces.

Kent writes: "We're reminded at the Full Moon, when the Sun and Moon are in opposite signs, that we tend to fare best when our natural tendencies are tempered by their opposites. Virgo is at its best when it borrows from its opposite sign, Pisces, which tends to react empathetically to human frailty. Or course, a Virgo ... might say that Pisces' policy of rewarding imperfection with kindness is the same as having no standards at all. Pisces would say nothing in response, but simply smile understandingly."

Important take away - Balance

"... the ability to perceive the faults that prevent others from being great is no more important than the ability to make them believe that they are capable of greatness at all."

Do you have a team, clients, employee, or children? These are important words to remember. We are all coaches to someone. What kind of coach are you?
