Analysis
This New Moon is going to be a feisty one, loaded with cardinal energies helping us break through some challenging limitations. The key is knowing when not to push back. Both the Sun and Moon are coming together in the Mars-ruled sign of Aries. Aries is all about independence and exerting our own wills. This is an excellent time to set some new personal goals for yourself. You’ll likely to be shown where you have room to grow during this Moon. However, this won’t be served up on a silver platter. Aries has a tendency to need to take responsibility, and walk the path (or fight the war), alone. With push back from serious Saturn, it's certain you will have to take the long road. Saturn’s square is for good reason, hoping you will pump the breaks and do things by the book, or properly. You may feel as if some authority figure is taking your power away. Tempers may flare as this signs square off, but the key is to be present, and choosing your battles wisely.
 
Mercury is now in forward motion, returning to Neptune and trining the North Node in Cancer. Mercury conjunct Neptune helps us tune into how we feel, how we speak or think of others. We are much more likely to practice empathy, and vibrate unconditionally. These two planets making a trine to the North Node, we are being asked to be mindful of our emotions, our homes, and family. While we may come from all walks of life, we are collectively one. Mercury will also be making an easy angle to Saturn, giving hopes that authoritarians in our lives may have a sudden epiphany and choose to govern differently. We have a choice to choose to diffuse conflict and be gentle with each other, even more importantly with ourselves. This New Moon provides everyone with an opportunity to turn over a new leaf, and potentially lay our weapons down. 
 
Mars is in Gemini, helping us broaden our horizons. This can be a nice change, and help us move in a multitude of different ways. Although this may be distracting for some of you, give yourself permission and dare to go your own way. Uranus is making an out of sign trine to Jupiter, connecting us to our soul tribes. People who are necessary to help facilitate and birth these changes will now appear. The may come from far and wide, to help expand your views on the world, and believe in the impossible. Pluto is making his extremely rare and potent conjunction with the karmic South Node in Capricorn. This is a turning point in 2019, preparing us for the major transits to come in 2020 when the great conjunction of Saturn, Pluto, South Node and Jupiter come together and decide our fate for the years ahead. Things are breaking down. They’ll slowly come to the surface to help you break away from what is toxic, and no longer beneficial for you in the long term. With it’s aspects to the nodes, we are cultivating deep change, and shedding layers of pain from present, and past lives. The question is; would you like to do that the easy way, or the hard way? Surrender!

Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust: Full Moon in Scorpio, May 18th 2019

May 16, 2019

This is a very intensely emotional Full Moon. The Sun in earthy Taurus is opposing the Moon in the late degrees of Scorpio. As with all full moons, it’s a time of realization and completions. Scorpio has a tendency to be all or nothing, exploring the deep depth of our soul. This is a full moon where we may be more inclined to feel overwhelmed with feelings we have been suppressing for some time. Not everyone's skeletons will want to come from out the closet during this lunation. You may notice some people will prefer to hold tight to their feelings, and perhaps respond with

We all love to marvel at the perfect symmetry, deep jewel tones, and vibrations coming from crystals, but how do they actually work and what are the best ways to use them? All natural crystals are formed by the Earth and undergo a transformation from liquid to solid. As the solidification process takes place the atoms begin to arrange themselves in a three dimensional highly organized fashion; forming what is called crystal lattices. The lattices are what we visually perceive as the geometry/shape of a crystal. When the crystal is growing, the lattices repeat and repeat for as long as the conditions for growth allow.

Fertile Ground: New Moon in Taurus, May 4th 2019

This New Moon in Taurus isn’t your stereotypical lunation in the fixed bullish sign. Uranus is linking up with this Moon, along with aspects to the South node shaking up the ground beneath us. With aspects from these two, we learn to accept that change is a vital part of our lives. It’s not always meant to create chaos, but flush out the old making way for the new. Similar to tilling a garden, this is an excellent time to break up old patterns, removing stagnant energy and outdated values.
