New Moon

Dark Moon Savasana

Rafal_Olbinski_Moon - Dark Moon
Bird with the Moon by Rafal Olbinski

If you've been studying astrology for a while, or following the Daily Astro-LOA Flash, you'll know that the Dark Moon is a time to release tension and chillax. No matter what sign or what time of year, the two days before every New Moon is the time to unwind. With a restorative vibe, you can reflect on the past 27 days, and prepare for the power and energy about to shift. And it does shift.

Dark Moon in AquariusWhat Exactly is the Dark Moon?

First of all, the Dark Moon is in play for about two days prior to the New Moon, or when it is 30° degrees 'behind'. You can't see it at that time. It's too close to the sun.

Think of it as the culmination of a whole 28 day cycle. In this way, the Moon goes through the entire zodiac, waxing and waning, making every aspect to every planet and point in the chart.

At the end, in the Dark Moon Phases, the moon applies to a conjunction to the sun which marks the New Moon and the beginning of the cycle all over again.

The Power of the Lunar Cycle

Don't underestimate the power of aligning with the moon as it travels through the zodiac. Whole calendars are devoted to this but the gist is: planting seeds and setting intentions on the New and waxing moon. Releasing resistance and pulling weeds on the Full and waning moon, and restoring/resting/de-cluttering on the Dark Moon.

For more details on the transits of the Moon, check out this short Youtube Tutorial - Transits of the Moon.

Your Sign, the Moon

In our time of solar/patriarchy, it might surprise you to know of the moon's elevation in the past. Many ancient astrologers regarded the Moon as the chief of the two luminaries. The sun was considered less significant to the Babylonian stargazers, for example. And later, in Roman times, people were not known by their sun signs but by their Moon, or even Ascendant sign.

Why Rest on the Dark Moon?

Dark Moons are definitely for rest. Think recuperation, meditation and quietude with a little retreat and de-cluttering thrown in. Also, it's good to fill the tanks at this time.

Joss Whedon says, "Fill the tanks!" Between projects, he recommends constantly consuming art, and he means art you don't normally watch or read - shows, films, plays, art exhibitions, concerts, poetry readings, novels... The goal is to step outside the normal, everyday routine/genres. "It’s all fodder," he says and this approach applies beautifully to Dark Moon times.

See Dark Moon as Savasana

I like to think of the Dark Moon as Savasana, pronounced shah-VAHS-uh-nuh. If you've taken a yoga class, you'll know it as that last pose at the end of the session. The pose of the corpse. It's easy, right? You just lay there.

But no.

It's actually not only the most important pose of the practice, it's also the most challenging because you have to relax.

Sort of like 'allowing' or floating downstream.

Here's a defination from DoYouYoga:

"...Savasana is the time to reap all the benefits of the physical practice. Muscular and skeletal tension is consciously relaxed in this pose. Regardless of length and frequency, we can all agree that Savasana is an essential part of every yoga practice."

Let's translate that into Astro-LOA terms.

The dark moon is a time to reap all the benefits of the month's focus and we can all agree that relaxing on the Dark Moon is an essential part of every deliberate creation practice.

And for those who want to follow my teacher - Yoga with Adriene -  in a savasana practice, here she is, taking us step by step through the corpse pose.

It's our chance to consciKimFalconer_fullously float downstream, restore and rejuvenate, and of course, fills the tanks.

I'd love to hear your suggestions for chilling out on the Dark Moon.

See you in the comments.

The Partial Solar Eclipse January 5th/6th

Let's look a little closer at the January 5th eclipse. Notice right away there is a strong focus in Capricorn. No less than five planets and the South Lunar Node occupy that sign. Zeroing in, it also becomes clear that Saturn and Pluto are conjunct the eclipse, bringing with them their own particular brand 0f energies. Saturn wants to make it 'real' and Pluto wants to infuse it with power. So, whatever you are intending on this New Moon Eclipse, it wants to be deep, meaningful and have weight. Consequence. Go for a powerful desire this time round.

 

NewMoonEclipse_Jan2019

The Lunar Eclipse January 20th/21st

The second eclipse in January is the lunar or full moon eclipse where we lean toward letting go. Releasing and allowing. This full moon is, of course, conjunct the Lunar Node (as that's what makes it an eclipse).  It is also conjunct Mercury, messenger of the gods and Pluto, lord of transformation. It's possible that what you let go of now, a toleration, belief, habit, will have potent, far reaching results. Check the video if you aren't sure 'where' to find this event in your own chart. You'll be looking for the opposite houses that contain 1° Leo and 1° Aquarius.

The main thing to remember as you pre-pave this energy for 2019 is that we initiate on the solar eclipse and release on the Lunar. And always, keep an ear out for the messages the eclipse season brings. Go through the keyword list below for ideas, or delve deeper into the houses by joining the Open (our Members only) GVA Form.

Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019

Pig 2019 - Schwart
Year of the Pig 2019 - Schwart

Welcome the Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019.

Chinese New Year of the Pig 2019 Times
New Moon @ 15 Aquarius
LA - Feb 4 - 1:04 pm
NY - Feb 4 - 4:04 pm
LON - Feb 4 - 9:04 pm
SYD - Feb 5 - 8:04 am

In Chinese Astrology, the new year falls on the second New Moon after the solstice. Depending on where you are in the world, this year it's February 4th/5th. And yes, it coincides with the Aquarius New Moon which becomes an event chart for the next twelve months. We'll look more at that chart below, but first, a little intro to the sign of the Pig.

Eclipse Activation Alert

As a side note, the new moon prior to this one is an eclipse on January 5th at 15 Capricorn. Because of the timing of eclipses, the 'message' can be delivered one month before, or one month after, so be aware. For you, this Aquarius New Moon might pack the power of the last eclipse!

The Sign of the Pig 2019

With Chinese Astrology, the Pig is associated with the Earthly Branch (地支—dì zhī) hài (亥), and the hours 9–11 in the night. In terms of yin and yang (阴阳—yīn yáng), the Pig is yin. And, in Chinese culture, pigs symbolize wealth, abundance, easygoing approach and a generous perspective.  Pigs are the 'actions speak louder than words' sign and DO what they say, completing projects and tasks. They are practical, loyal, Earthy (like Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn) and not afraid of 'hands-on'. Sensual and appreciative of the five senses, they know how to treat themselves well, fueling creativity with practical things like good food, good company, exercise and the fresh outdoors.

Leaning toward accomplishment, they are able to handle power, stepping up as leaders though they can take care of mundane responsibilities as well. Their chubby faces and big ears are signs of fortune though they can be Zen about their life circumstances, taking responsibility for their own well-being. You don't often see them pointing a finger!

Serene, optimistic and fun, you can be the year of the Pig 2019 is something to celebrate.

Sign by Sign Horoscopes for Year of the Pig 2019

Image of Pig by Chao ShaoAng
Art by Chao ShaoAng

Each sign of the Western Zodiac will have a different response in the New Year of the Pig 2019, according to where this Aquarius New moon falls. Also notice that because the signs run in twelve-year cycles, they match up, more or less, with the cycle of Jupiter. For example, many Pigs born any time this century will have Jupiter in Sagittarius, which certainly goes with the buoyant, energetic, happy-go-lucky vibe of the Pig.

Let's look at how each sign can align with the energy of the Pig 2019.

AriesARIES 

The Ram can have a very social time in the year of the Pig 2019. Spirits are lifted when in a group situation, with friends or the home tribe. Aries will want to lead though, so find ways to put yourself in the spotlight. It's no time to be shy. This is a great year to release resistance to adventure. You will want to travel. Watch for contrasts and prickles in relationships. Instead of falling into a default response with potential discord to follow, ask yourself what you really want in terms of partnership and do whatever it takes to create that. This is the year where you own responsibility for your own well-being.

TaurusTAURUS 

The sign of the bull shares characteristics with the Chinese Pig, especially the earthy nature and easy-going vibe. Taureans will find this year more productive, creative and sensual than usual. It's good for proposing new projects, launching a career or changing to a new profession or calling. Whatever your mission in life, you'll be able to go for it with fresh enthusiasm. Great for your public identity. The only proviso is honesty. You'll need to be scrupulous in all your dealings, with a fully transparent attitude. Avoid any collaborations that have even a wiff of 'under the table' dealings. They won't stay hidden for long. If you're looking for a new partner, this is your year! Go for it.

GeminiGEMINI

The Twins in the year of the Pig will feel lucky, strong and resilient. The focus is on expansion of some kind, higher education, travel, philosophies or artistic pursuits that take you places you've never been before. To spice it up, it looks like you won't be going on these new horizon journeys alone. Whether a biz partner, artistic collaboration or romance, you won't have any trouble finding a plus one, if that's what you want. Though the year of the Pig 2019 is practical in some way, you will want to maintain a sense of the carefree. If it doesn't make you feel lighter than air, it's not for you. Your only caution is overindulgence. Avoid it for the best health outcomes.

CancerCANCER

Crabs come out of their shells in the year of the Pig. This is a time to embrace your strengths, both emotional and physical. You may want to work out, train in a mind-body-spirit discipline, martial art, weights, yoga, swimming, running, tennis. You decide, but the benefits of being in your best shape ever are multiple. You'll own your power and leadership qualities, stand up for your choices in the face of challenge, and find more authentic relationships - because you're being more authentic yourself. As always, food, comfort, artistry and nutrition are all-important, but this year a hobby or pastime could turn into a new, and lucrative, income stream.

LeoLEO 

Whatever creative projects you are planning for 2019, the Pig energy is going to be supportive on all levels. From finding an agent, collaborator, biz partner, financial backer, loan officer or funding agency, to reaching the audience you are after, the clients, the job offers, this year rocks. The only concern, at this time, is forgetting about your day to day practical needs. That includes body care like skipping meals, working all hours and generally not listening to internal signals. You can't live so wild and extreme that you ignore the little things that support well-being. This goes for romance as well. Don't expect relationships to run on autopilot this year.

Virgo VIRGO 

Because you are an Earth sign, the year of the Pig 2019 is a strong one for you. Expect income and finances to improve, mainly because you are able to catch problems before they happen and make necessary adjustments. Children may play a larger part in your life, more than you expected, but that goes for other creative projects too. Romance is in the air, and the more you can maintain the feeling of 'delightful uncertainty' the better. This is not a time to nail things down with commitments and contracts. Find the joy in the lightness of being and abundance will follow. It's about trusting your choices, and your heart.

LibraLIBRA 

Communication is going to surprise you this year. It's like suddenly everyone guy and their dog is listening to what you have to say. Hanging on your words, even. Whether you are a speaker, teacher, blogger, writer, coach, counselor, professor or performer, the year of the Pig 2019 brings new ideas, a fresh voice and supporters who are willing to notice what you have to say. Great for publishing, traditional or electronic, this is the year you reach a wider audience with whatever it is you do. Maybe there is one special someone you would like more attention from? In the words of Jane Austin, “Let us never underestimate the power of a well-written letter.”

ScorpioSCORPIO 

For Scorpio, the year of the Pig brings practical inclinations, beginning with the home. The drive might be to buy a new place, relocate or build/repair/remodel. In a way, this is a metaphor for work that you do on yourself this year. The focus is internal and you will need a sense of your own sanctuary, no matter what your living situation. Likewise, you'll need some emotional space where you can process the changes going on inside you. Partnership and live-in companions require sensitive handling, mainly because you'll be feeling a little restless or edgy. For the best results, communicate. Tell them what is happening. It's not a year to keep people guessing.

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS

Likely, you'll find this a year where you want to expand intellectually, taking new courses, leveling up credentials or going for training/edu in a whole new area of life. It's exhilarating, this launch into something new-for-you but there are a few cautions to keep in mind. Don't forget your family or tribe in the midst of it all. A sibling or cousin especially could need help and if you're too self-focused, you'll miss the cues. Optimism is sky high, and that's awesome, but check in, from time to time, to your accessibility. This is a busy year and it might be easy to get caught up in outcome more than the journey. You want to make each day a delight.

CapricornCAPRICORN

The year of the Pig 2019 is one to love what you do or change it. No exceptions. The earthy sign of the Sea-goat is similar in some ways to the Pig but one thing Pig can teach you is to love life. Every moment of it. It's not enough to make the money, meet the deadlines, fulfill the obligations. The question you must ask is, "Where is my highest joy?" If the answer isn't in what you are already doing, how you are 'being' then be ready for major changes in that department. In case you aren't sure how to evaluate this mindset, turn to your core values. What are they and are you living them to the fullness of your heart's desire?

AquariusAQUARIUS 

This is the most important new moon of the year and as it ushers in the year of the Pig, there are some things for you to face. Quite possibly, you are already on the path, feeling confident, abundant, appreciative and optimistic. If so, carry on. But if not, you'll need to have a long, slow, honest look at yourself and the life you lead. Fortunately, Pig energy has a wide and generous perspective, with all the support in the world for helping you make improvements in your life if you need to. Friends, in particular, are ready to lend a hand, so reach out, ask for help and amp up your receiving skills so you can fully benefit when the good times roll.

piscesPISCES

If ever there was a year for you to work your magic, this is it. Pisces dreams the 'impossible 'dreams and Pig will gladly help you bring them to fruition. In the past, it may have been enough to have the idea, the sketch, the scene, the outline, the riff, the concept, but not now. This is your year of bringing it down to earth, manifesting your big dreams now. Shed any reluctance like an old skin and embrace the renewal and strength of vision that settles over this year. Large or small, whatever it is you hold in your thoughts is fair game for reality. Think of yourself as Midas with the golden touch, sans nasty consequences. Go forth and make it so!

The New Moon & Mercury Direct

First up, the New Moon @15 Sagittarius symbolizes new beginnings, with extra dream power. That’s because this moon is conjunct Jupiter, planet of expansion and square to Mars and Neptune in dreamscape Pisces.

But then, to top it off, Mercury turns direct just hours before, bringing a close to the retrograde phase. Think of it as a perfect time to spread your dream-wings and fly.

Here are the times in your zone

New Moon & Mercury Direct Scopes Aries - Cancer

AriesARIES – The world that seemed cluttered with tasks and responsibilities is turning into major opportunity land. You get to visit distant horizons, taste foreign foods, dress spectacular and meet strangers from afar. Could be romance? The key is to bring all your exotic experiences back to your creative, inner life. Find a way to share revelations through artistry, community, and connection. Yum!

TaurusTAURUS Where creative transformation and deeply intimate experiences are concerned, you are in for a treat. No matter how much it turns your home life upside down, this is a welcome change! Your best approach is ‘no resistance’. You want to merge energies for a greater goal, be that artistic, passionate or enlightenment. Forget what others ‘think’ and go for what you really want.

GeminiGEMINIChange in ‘relationship’ may have been going on for a while now but this transit sees definitive, out in the open, nothing hidden transformations. No more guesswork as the words flow back and forth, enriching your experiences, answering your questions, fulfilling your dreams. See this as the beginning of the beginning, a chance to know yourself better and make choices from the heart.

CancerCANCERIf there have been health issues weighing you down, or mysterious hitches in your financial plans for the future, things are going to shoot forward now, at the speed of light. Expect a bit of G force, to start with, and allow for everything to unfold before you pass judgment. This isn’t time to smooth things over but embrace all the bumps and edges, release resistance, express and purge. Cut loose!

New Moon & Mercury Direct Scopes Leo - Scorpio

LeoLEO A romantic hiatus has the potential to be a big relief, putting you on the path to the creative connections of your dreams. This will stir up your life on all fronts, especially home and work or career life. The best resource for this is to tap into, and trust, your inner guidance (not other people's opinions). Think, fresh start, amped up Mojo, inner child ecstasy and set points through the roof!

Virgo VIRGO – Logjams and stalled desires on the home front will release as you seek balance between your connections to others and your authentic Self. Don’t be surprised if a long postponed move, remodel or renovation suddenly falls into place. Whatever your big dream, the goals and aims of your heart, start first with imagination. Nurture visions there, as well as IRL, for the best results.

LibraLIBRA Don’t be surprised if your voice, your communications, writings and offerings, are suddenly recognized, talked about, trending or valued in a whole new way. It feels like being heard as barriers to self-expression come tumbling down. Make sure you get out and socialize and ramp up your social media. You’re up for meeting people who will facilitate great change, so lurking; be seen!

ScorpioSCORPIO Money, finances, business opportunities and overall Mojo are up and happening, if you are being true to yourself. It’s the only proviso. You can’t skip this one, or wing it even. No matter how easy it is to be all things to all people, this is your call to be all things to and for yourself. Let authenticity reign. Also, work out what you want to do with the success and abundance coming your way!

New Moon & Mercury Direct Scopes Sagittarius - Pisces

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS-This is your new moon, and your solar return, the most powerful time of the year for Centaurs. The intentions you set now must reflect your heart’s desire. In this way, you pave the future. Consider the Upanishad: You are your deepest, driving desires. As is your desire, so is your will. As is your will, so is your deed. As is your deed, so is your destiny. Tune in, and make a wish.

CapricornCAPRICORN – Compassion, understanding, intuitive knowing and inner guidance are mind blowing at this time. They also have a direct effect on your relationship to others. It’s like you can share your dreams as you never could before. You’ll want to find ways to translate, articulate and pass on the knowledge that you gain. It’s ‘dream it into being time.’ Go big!

AquariusAQUARIUSFriendships and inner circle groups are where the fireworks go off so be ready to take sudden left turns. This has a direct effect on your relationships, personal and business. You’ll want your intimates to be true friends, first and foremost. Expect to hard prune for new growth, especially if old associates no longer match the new you. Let them go and move on. Be ready for goals to actualize!

piscesPISCES – Your career is about expand, bringing in changes that are better than a holiday! Ritual day-to-day routine will have to adjust, but take that as your chance to ‘make it right-for-you’. This is a trend that's in play for most of 2019, so there's time to get it right, no pressure. For example, if your career/mission in life wants a complete reboot, don't hesitate. Nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Solstice Dance 2018

Solstice Dance - Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert
Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert

The Solstice Dance

Hi Everyone, I'm updating the Solstice post, making it relevant for June 21, 2018. It's happening now!

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With Uranus and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), something in your life is on the brink of change.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) Sun crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. Pardon, you might say. The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path.

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts on what you want to experience on or in the days after the Solstice.

Solstice 2018 @ 0 degrees Cancer

LA – June 21 – 3:07 am
NY – June 21 – 6:07 am
LON – June 21 – 11:07 am
SYD – June 21 – 8:07 pm

Deliberate Creations tips for the Solstice Dance, from the JeanetteBecome a Skilled Receiver, I Am Statements 101You're Always Doing it!

Using your Chart to Amp up Solstice Intentions

It's easy to use your chart to amp up your intentions. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think of greeting this energy with reverence and respect, ready to engage, give and receive. This is where you do your Solstice Dance of enthusiasm and joy.
  2. Hone in on 0 degrees of Cancer in your chart. Give it an 8 - 10 degree orb either way. (20 Gemini to 10 Cancer). Any planets there? What house is the focus on? Transits to that house?
  3. Notice how you feel in this area of life, what you want and then relax about it. Let the universe do her thing!

Not sure how to find these positions in your natal chart? Pop over to the GVA Forum and we’ll give you a hand.

Happy Solstice everyone!

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-Stein

Ready for the Eclipse Season?

Eclipse Season - Moonwalk by Catrin Welz-SteinEclipse Season Image by Catrin Welz-Stein

The 2018 Eclipse Season is upon us. Are you ready?

Eclipse Season Dates

The first eclipse of the year is January 31/February 1 – a (Full Moon) Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo linking Sun-Moon-Nodes to Ceres, Venus and Neptune. The last time we had a Lunar Eclipse at this degree was January 1999.

This current eclipse is significant because it is not only a total eclipse, but also a 'blue' moon (second full moon of the month in the northern hemisphere) and a supermoon* or at it's perigee. Think of this as activating and heightening emotions, perspectives and sensations while possibly shortening fuses. This may not be negative for you at all. With awareness, you can use a 'short fuse' to release tolerations, setting free pent up emotions and clearing the air. Just know you might cut a wide swath. Without awareness, there could be fallout.

In your natal chart, attention is placed on opposite polarities like yin and yang, home and career, internal and external, Self and Others. You have a chance to balance life, especially in the houses touched by this eclipse. Namely, the houses where you find 11 Leo and 11 Aquarius. If you need help finding those houses, run through the simple steps below, or give a shout out in the comments.

TIMES for the January 31st/February 1st Eclipse

LA – Wednesday – 5.26 am
NY. – Wednesday – 8.26 am
LON – Wednesday – 1.26 pm
SYD – Thursday – 12.26 am

TIMES for the February 15th/16th Eclipse

February 15/16 is the (New Moon) Partial Solar Eclipse @27 Aquarius. This is a powerhouse time to start new projects, especially in in the area of life ruled by the house activated (see how to find that below).

LA – Thursday – 1.06 pm
NY - Thursday – 4.06 pm
LON – Thursday – 9.06 pm
SYD – Friday – 8.06 am

Eclipse Season in Perspective

In ancient times, eclipses were associated with dramatic events, political, geological or existential. Hence the apprehension many feel when an eclipse is impending. Luckily, it's not the 1400s anymore, and we aren't locked into a single perspective. We decide how we will align with these Sun-moon-node cycles. Most importantly, we focus on the gifts they bring.

By checking where the eclipse falls in your chart, we can be open to the positive, creative change on offer. It's easy to do. Just follow these simple steps.

For the Jan 31sr/Feb 1st Total Lunar Eclipse @11 Leo:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your favorite software)
  2. Check where 11 Degrees of Leo and 15 degrees of Leo falls
  3. Focus on those HOUSES to see where you will receive your cosmic gifts

For the Partial Solar Eclipse on February 15th/16th:

  1. Look at your natal chart (created on Astro.com or your fav software)
  2. Check where 27 degress of Aquarius is in your chart
  3. Look at that HOUSE to open to the kick-ass fresh start on offer

Prep for the Eclipse Season Gifts

Ways to prepare for the eclipse opportunities include:

  1. Revisit your core values
  2. Make a list of tolerations to release
  3. Think about home live vs. career - balanced?
  4. Clean and de-clutter the house, or even a drawer
  5. Clear up misunderstandings in relationships
  6. Get more rest
  7. Boost your nutrition
  8. Find more time to exercise
  9. Appreciate what is, just as it is
  10. Amp up self love

Let's talk more about this in the comments.

Happy eclipse season gifts! I'd love to hear how this shapes up for you.

xxKim

* A supermoon is a full moon or a new moon that approximately coincides with the closest distance that the Moon reaches to Earth in its elliptic orbit, resulting in a slightly larger-than-usual apparent size of the lunar disk as seen from Earth.[1] The technical name is the perigee syzygy of the Earth–Moon–Sun system or more simply full (or new) Moon at perigee.[a]  - Read More....
