Can you feel it? Your rebirth is towards the stages of completion as you emerge in your new truest form. Have you noticed? The vibrant sensations of cleansed and pure energy! This past weekend we experienced an extreme download that shifted us in the final moments of transformation. November is a time of manifestation and balance in numerology since it is our 11th month. This paired with the new moon in Scorpio, the new cycle of years as we wind down the year of 2, and Diwali (the Hindu Festival of Lights as we shine light across the world to break through the darkness) is really allowing us to move into our new (real) form of conscious beauty. It has been a long time coming, a process, hard work, and quite the journey. Embrace this new feeling, this new perception, and this new life for it is the one you were always destined to live. Blessings have been occurring in many shapes and forms this month, and we are to be grateful for each one as we give thanks. Scorpio is all about death and rebirth and the new moon is a time of birth and beginnings. Have you been healing and growing and allowing the grueling painstaking process to move through you? If you have, this is a beautiful time for you and your life. Have you been begrudgingly forcing things to remain the same and resisted every opportunity for change? If so, this will be a difficult and tumultuous time. It’s okay to let go. It’s okay to surrender. It’s okay to be vulnerable. It’s okay to allow life to be as it is. It’s okay to be accepting. Everything will be okay if you allow it to be. Enjoy this beautiful time eternal waking beauties, for it is our time of sustainable happiness and contentment as we embrace our true form. Blessings be with you and may you be filled and surrounded by light and love!
All too often we refer to our well-known Greek deities while forgetting about their Roman counterparts. Today, we will reflect back on our misunderstood God of War. Mars was the protector of Rome. He was a level-headed strategist who defended the city’s borders. Mars is also the father of Romulus and Remus who were the founders of Rome. It is said that Mars loved the sound of battle and the violence of war. However, he also protected cities from invading armies and helped soldiers fight against rebellion. So, what was the true face of Mars? Was he some ruthless, blood-thirsty barbarian? Or an intellectual strategist who defended the city he loved and believed in the rules of combat? I cannot say I know, but I believe he had a set of ethics he followed when it came to protecting the city he was passionate about.
Mars: The Home of Men
Our fiery planet, Mars, is often associated with war, anger, lust, and violence. However, we tend to forget or misinterpret the concepts of courage, strength, masculinity, ambition, and passion that are other defining attributes of the planet as well. Strength doesn’t have to be physically forceful just like how masculinity doesn’t have to be this tough macho man that is constantly depicted. Courage can be found within the smallest being and ambition can be gentle yet unwavering. When we rethink about these ideals and what is really being conveyed any gender and any creature can harness these energies in a soft and loving manner.
Mars: My Retrograde Interpretation
For this Mars retrograde I truly feel most are missing the mark. We have forgotten that passion is what fuels each of us to act. Right now our passions that have been ruminating in our subconscious are breaking through to the forefront of our minds and giving us the courage and ambition to act or maybe even go to war. We are at a point where we are willing to fight for what we believe in and stand for morally, ethically, and spiritually.
What we once feared to say or express we are now more than ever figuring out ways to fully embrace and let it be known. It is okay to be passionate about various pursuits in life whether it’s to become a leading tetherball player, stand up to the bully at school, tell our parents we want to play the piano instead of soccer, sing not caring who is listening, pursue the career we have always wanted, or even let our partner know we don’t love when they leave the lids off everything. No matter what it is, it is okay to be honest and forthcoming.
We have been working on ourselves for so long. These past couple of years have been helping us cut ties, heal, connect to our higher selves, see clearly, and love fully. Now we are being asked to put it all in motion and really harness the energies of Mars, muster up all of our courage and strength, and be prepared for the battle of our lives: to live with passion and purpose.
The cold moon is quite literally named such due to the cold weather that has embarked upon us. However, despite the chilly climate, we are surrounded by many forms of warmth. During this time many are huddling around the fireplace, filling their glasses with wine or eggnog, and surrounding themselves with family and friends.
When there is a lack of light and warmth from our environment, we must draw from within. As we do so, it is important to restore ourselves by allowing time for relaxation. With the cold upon us as we transition to winter, we are able to appreciate everything life has to offer sustaining us through the season.
Gemini Full Moon
Communication is the theme for this full moon. Whether it is verbal, non-verbal or self-talk (aka thinking), all forms of communication are in need of cleansing. It is time to really reflect on the words we use, our tone of voice and our subtle body language cues when engaging with others.
What message are we trying to convey? How clear and concise must we be? How do we want the other party to feel about our interaction?
These are all pertinent questions whether in a formal or casual setting. Our words, tone and body language all tend to vary depending on who we are talking with and the topic of discussion. Being mindful of each aspect of communication allows for more effective interactions.
When interacting within our minds it is important to acknowledge what we say to ourselves about ourselves, others and the world. Every thought can affect the way we see and experience our lives and the world around us.
What are we feeding our brains? What kind of world are we creating? How are we impacting ourselves and our world based on our thoughts?
It is amazing how powerful our thoughts truly are. They affect our emotions which alter our actions and behaviors. There has also been research about how our thoughts affect our physical bodies. Take some time with yourself to evaluate the type of life you want to live and make your thoughts match the world you want to create around you.
Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet of communication, will be stationary retrograde during this full moon. This means that the planet appears to be revolving on its axis in the opposite direction. When this occurs we are able to tap into the divine feminine energies of the planet. The divine feminine includes our subconscious, softness, and divine timing.
While Mercury is in retrograde, we will be allowing our subconscious thoughts to seep into our conscious mind. This is extremely powerful because we are able to connect to our core beliefs and ideologies in a big way. These thoughts will be shared with us when necessary, so we must be patient for divine timing is at work.
As we relay these thoughts and communicate with others there will be a subtle, softness to our delivery. Remember to be aware of what we are trying to convey and how we want to conduct each interaction.
Neptune, the planet of compassion, spiritual enlightenment, and inspiration trines Jupiter our planet of luck, growth, and prosperity aiding us in our transition toward spiritual awareness and compassion for the collective. There is major spiritual growth occurring at this time. More people are empathizing with others bringing a sense of community as we share our prosperity.
Neptune squares the sun, our divine masculine, and moon, our divine feminine, creating some difficulty with balancing the two. We are struggling with our need to want to know every minute detail in our subconscious mind immediately, and our conscious scope of the bigger picture. There is an indecisive nature in how to follow our spiritual path, while a need to aim high toward fulfilling our purpose is trying to take charge. Sometimes we need to quiet the mind and find our center so we may follow our truth.
Uranus, the planet of progression, ingenuity, and intuition trines Mercury, the planet of communication and thought, and Saturn, the planet of limitations and boundaries. This dynamic is putting forth new, productive forms of communication and thought patterns. We are also able to create innovative personal boundaries giving way to a healthier, happier us. As we realize our limitations we have placed upon ourselves and others, we are finding prolific ways around them. This allows for new avenues of reaching our goals.
I plan on utilizing blues and purples during my ceremony. Lavender essential oil can either be diffused or applied to the skin bringing a relaxing and clarifying energy.
Purple and blue candles will aid in the opening of our throat and third eye chakras allowing our thoughts and communication to be cleansed.
Benzoin and rainforest incense are excellent for refreshing and renewing our space. I always enjoy clearing my space with sage before lighting my candles and incense.
I will be surrounding myself with amethyst, apophyllite and clear quartz to bring me clarity and peace of mind. Blue lace agate, blue kyanite, and blue chalcedony will be present to amplify, soften and promote positive forms of communication.
During my release I will focus on all toxic ways of thinking and communicating that are causing blockages within myself. I will let them go and ask that my third eye and throat chakra be cleansed and void of all ineffective thoughts and words.
If you choose, you may make a list of qualities you no longer want and need to release. When you are done rip it up into tiny pieces and let the wind take it away (since Gemini is an air sign). I also ask my guides to aid me in this process.
Have a wonderful release Eternal Waking Beauties. I hope this article resonates with your effervescent, beautiful souls.
The frost moon draws in crisp winds with a chilly atmosphere. Amidst the cold, we begin to recognize how much warmth is drawn from within. We are a divine source of energy and heat allowing survival through the coldest months to come. As we harness this power a wave of gratitude is washed over the world as we realize how powerful our bodies are. We are also drawing toward the end of the year filled with holidays where we show appreciation for others with love and joy.
We continue our release of this lunar cycle and this year in quiet contemplation. Reflecting on the wavering months, days, moments, we take a step back to perceive the bigger picture of every minute action. It is time to forgive and let go, while never forgetting so we may continue learn and grow. Allow your inner light to guide you to a place of tranquil solitude as you give yourself respite from life to heal and recharge.
Full Moon in Taurus
Taurus is our fixed, earth sign ruled by Venus giving this sign a nurturing stability created from hard work and consistency. Full moons call upon release while bringing clarity and positive opportunity. This one in particular is asking us to let go of rigid ways and traditions that are not beneficial.
We are being challenged to change and transform while still upholding our core ethics to maintain steady footing. As we open ourselves to the new, different, and unknown we are able to take what is necessary in our growth from each while still practicing our values. Let us not dismiss the positive and negative qualities of the old and new, but instead reflect and understand the significance of each that helped us get where we are today.
The sun and Jupiter sit conjunct to one another in Scorpio as they trine Neptune in its ruling sign, Pisces and oppose the moon in Taurus. The sun represents the divine masculine of our conscious thought as Jupiter is our planet of fortune, prosperity and growth. The pair allow for favorable opportunities to grow and transform that we are able to realize on a conscious level.
This duo trines Neptune, our planet of inspiration, spiritual enlightenment and compassion creating expansion in these areas. There is a warm, loving nature as these areas of spiritual enhancement become apparent.
Our masculine pair oppose our divine feminine formed in the moon. The moon in Taurus strengthens our nurturing nature and loving ways of compassion and understanding. The sun and Jupiter create growth as they sit in Scorpio. Scorpio has three different levels. Depending on where we are in that maturation process individually, we will be affected differently.
This may be a time of more struggle for one who does not see the manipulation they use to get ahead materialistically or in their ways of love. Others will be able to find a harmony of peace and prosperity as they learn how to balance old ways with new ideas, beliefs and structures forming more effective behavior patterns. Either way, it is a learning, growing and healing process for us all as we reflect.
The frost full Taurus moon brings a time of reflection, release, positive progress and healing. The tools used for my ceremony will be based upon these factors. My incense of choice will be Amber and Sandalwood.
Amber is known as a powerful cleanser and healer. It works to alleviate stress, anxiety and depression, while also purging disease and restoring revitalizing tissues. Amber stimulates the metabolism, purifies the body, and promotes self healing.
Sandalwood brings relaxation and mental clarity, and serves as a memory booster, anti-viral, antiseptic, and anti-inflammatory. There are many physical and psychological benefits to aid in our healing process.
The candles I plan to use for my ceremony will be rich and dark greens to reflect that of Archangel Raphael. He is our Archangel of healing and safe travels, who constantly promotes and aids in our well-being whether physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual.
The stones I will utilize are Amber, Citrine, Green Aventurine and Malachite for this particular ceremony. Amber will be used for the same reasons listed above, Citrine to promote happiness, prosperity and health, Green Aventurine to amplify love, abundance and health, and Malachite as my main stone of choice.
Malachite is one of the stones that resonate with Archangel Raphael. It is the stone of transformation and emotional clarity cleansing the aura and enhancing intuition – perfect for this full moon! Malachite enhances our emotional stability while strengthening our entire body increasing our health.
May this article assist you on your journey as you tune into the moon this evening. Be well and be safe Eternal Waking Beauties! You deserve all of the best and all of the love life has to offer.
Balance. Life is a rhythm of harmony fluttering through the very essence of our being. Even the beauty of all that is life can find blockages altering the natural flow. Following the turbulence we come to a state of balance allowing for a new path to be created. We continue to ride the tempo of a new beat until another obstacle emerges.
The dust is beginning to settle from the year. All of the clutter and chaos simmers from everything we have accomplished. Libra is helping us regain our sense of balance projecting an inner and outer harmony. What have you discovered along your long and weary path? What blockages or obstacles have you overcome? What do you cherish the most out of every moment you’ve experienced?
Libra allows us to reflect on the wonderful ways we have shown our resiliency and experienced the joys in life.
Our splendid Libra is a cardinal, air sign ruled by Venus. Welcome the trailblazers, the innovators, the creators and inventors of modern day marvels. Your keen eye and pragmatic mindset are wrapped in empathy. We are all utilizing these characteristics in our own unique way for this new moon.
October = 10th month of the year.
19= 1+9= 10
2017= 2+0+1+7= 10
The new moon falls on 10/10/10 or 1/1/1 with an amplified vibration due to being paired with zeros. One represents independence, new beginnings, tenacity, creation, success and manifestation. The number one vibrates with the frequency of the sun. The sun is our masculine ally nourishing our souls with warmth. Beware of getting too hot and becoming conceited, intolerant and aggressive.
We have been on a path this year toward self sufficiency, inner growth, and soul searching for our true passion and purpose. There will be more clarity as we come to the realizations of our truths.
There are three 1’s creating an additional vibration of 3, which is ruled by Jupiter and the number of the Ascended Masters. Jupiter is our planet of luck and prosperity as we expand our circle of consciousness and compassion. The Ascended Masters are those who once lived on earth and ascended due to their level of spiritual awareness and practices. We are being asked to do the same by nourishing our own soul, and spreading that awareness to others even if displayed with a simple act of kindness.
Threes the number of sociability, kindness, positivity, communication, imagination, growth, passion, and manifestation. This is where we are being asked to discover how to become effectively interdependent. We are learning how to work alongside others to create and manifest what is collectively desired to benefit the whole of humanity and the world.
We must learn how to balance our introverted independent nature as we tend to self-care and love and our extroverted independent nature creating connections of kindness and compassion.
For this new moon ceremony, I plan on burning red rose and amber incense (3 of each) to bring love, light and happiness into my life. I have been working on finding contentment with my life and everything I have as a sincere form of gratitude.
With my incense, I will be burning pink and yellow candles (3 of each) to amplify these vibrations of joy and unconditional love. One will be for myself, one for others, and one for the world and universe.
My stones of choice are Rose Quartz for love and yellow calcite for a soothing warmth. My main stone for this particular ceremony is going to be fluorite. Fluorite is able to ground excess mental and emotional energies causing anxiety or nervousness. It also helps cleanse the aura of unwanted ties to others’ energies, and aids in balancing various chakras.
There are a number of colors that fluorite comes in and each correlate with the chakras and their metaphysical properties. Purple fluorite helps open our spiritual connection and enhances our abilities to communicate with various light bodies from the spiritual realm such as Archangels, Ascended Masters, and the Fae. Green aids in healing on all levels getting to the heart of the issue. Blue resonates with our throat, ears and nose which are governed by our throat chakra, which facilitates communication. Blue fluorite is able to soothe and reconcile any communication blockages or issues. Yellow promotes cooperation and group alignment fulfilling our natural need to be social, and beyond that creating positive connections with others.
Happy manifesting Eternal Waking Beauties! Take care of your lovely souls at this time.
The blood full moon occurs every year during the month of October. Some say the blood moon got its name due to the reddish hues of the moon. It is said to be a time of magic, wisdom, and connection. What comes to your mind when you think of blood? The eerie and ominous concept of death? The flow of oxygen coursing through your veins to give your body life?
Whether the end of life or the engine for life itself, blood can take the roll of both. The blood moon marks the sign of a season shift as we begin the end of the year when life around us appears to be “dying.” Life seems to flee from the cold months that are just around the corner. Heat is necessary to sustain life and continue blood flow throughout our bodies. The wondrous magic of life within and around us never ceases to amaze me.
Animals show the sage, inherent wisdom by harvesting from everything around them before hibernating, or migrating toward the equator for winter. How does their natural instinct just kick in? How does ours? It is beautiful to see the intelligence within all forms of life showing how we are truly are all connected from the elements, to the trees, to the birds and the bees. Our bodies are naturally engineered to help us survive.
Full Moon in Aries
Our fiery, trailblazing warriors of Aries are aiding us in our full moon release as we have fully immersed ourselves into fall. They keep us active with a burst of creative motivation as they set the tone for the entire season. There is a lot of masculine power and assertion as we take charge of the plans Libra made at the beginning of this lunar cycle.
We are shedding our selfish ways and looking to make bigger changes for everyone to be able to survive the cold, upcoming season.
Virgo and Mars meet up in the sultry sign of Scorpio creating a powerful shift in love. Romance is in the air filled with passion and sensuality. The couple trines Pluto creating a regeneration of love in our romantic partnerships.
The sun conjuncts Mercury, our beloved communicator as we are able to utilize warm, embracing speech in both our interpersonal and interpersonal conversations.
The moon squares Pluto and opposes both the sun and Mercury. This is creating a minor setback in our growth as we subconsciously hold onto some unnecessary ways of thinking, communicating, and developing.
Because Aries is a fire sign I will be utilizing red, orange and yellow candles. I will pair them with sandalwood and rainforest incense to calm the intensity of our beloved, fire sign. It will cleanse the space and bring us down to earth.
My stones of choice will be dendritic agate, tree agate, and my main stone will be fire agate. Fire agate is said to be a flame captured within a stone. It is able to bring courage, protection and strength during these times of release and transformation.
I plan on focusing on letting go of any irrational aggressive tendencies by asking for conducive outlets for my excessive energy.
Enjoy your beautiful release Eternal Waking Beauties! May your fiery passions blaze a trail of light and love.
