Scorpio Solar Eclipse: Sparks

Posted by & filed under Eclipses, Lunar Phases, Moon, New Moon, Pluto, Saturn, Scorpio.

We’re reminded at the Scorpio New Moon how easily accidents, illness, and murderers can take our bodies, at any moment. Eventually, the body will die – there’s no controlling that. But remember, too, that life isn’t a body. Life doesn’t disappear just because it takes a form we no longer recognize….

Aries Lunar Eclipse: Rights, Grievances, and Relating

Posted by & filed under Aries, Eclipses, Libra, Newsmakers, Pluto.

This Lunar Eclipse is at the Moon’s South Node, symbolizing the need to release old patterns; in order for relationships to work, each partner has to be willing to let go of having their own way…. This demands some complex algebra to calculate whether or not that is a sacrifice that we’re prepared to make, or even capable of making—and whether the relationship has earned such a sacrifice….

Full Moon in Pisces: The Lilies of the Field

Posted by & filed under Full Moon, Lunar Phases, Pisces.

Each year when the Full Moon falls in Pisces, we’re asked to reacquaint ourselves with the value of retreat. Work, itineraries, and striving to become better, faster, and more accomplished, dominate our consciousness while the Sun moves through diligent Virgo. But overwork can lead us down wearying and unproductive paths….

New Moon in Virgo: The Grand Mess

Posted by & filed under Lunar Phases, New Moon, Virgo.

Maybe everything is already perfect, just as it is, and your only job is to figure out your place in it, and to do the best you can with what you’ve been given. Become better, urges Virgo; more useful. Be of optimal service. Figure out what the world needs from you, and organize your life in such a way that you’re able to give it.

New Moon in Leo: Walking the Circle

Posted by & filed under Leo, Lunar Phases, New Moon, Sun.

The world is in the process of recreating itself, and we are weaving change and upheaval into the fabric of our new future as we go along. Sanity tells us to be afraid, but faith whispers that there are no false moves now; however random, even capricious these changes appear to be, they are embedding themselves into our new foundation like stray river rocks and sea glass….

Full Moon in Capricorn: Resolutions at Midyear

Posted by & filed under Capricorn, Full Moon.

The Capricorn New Moon falls near the beginning of each calendar year. At midyear, the Capricorn Full Moon is its mirror image, the response to its call. It’s time to face the optimistic pages of those calendars and planners and compare them with your progress to date. There is still time to change your strategy—or even your resolutions.

New Moon in Cancer: Setting the Table

Posted by & filed under Cancer, New Moon.

It’s a big round table that we’re all sitting at together, and even those of us who grew up with wise elders and stable households are still frightened children, sometimes. And sometimes there are bigger, stronger people protecting us from life’s harshness, but sometimes we’re the ones who have to fry the chicken and set the table….

Summer Solstice: Slowing Down, Turning Around

Posted by & filed under Cancer, Seasonal Essays.

Like crabs skittering down the beach under a pale summer moon, we move in erratic ways, not along linear paths, zigging and zagging, revisiting old missteps. In nostalgia, we long to reclaim and embrace our abandoned childhood shells. Maybe, we think, that’s when we had it exactly right about who we were and what we wanted….
