Spring Equinox and Libra Full Moon 2019

Josephine Wall “Joie de Vivre”

R E L E A S E

Have you gotten used to the ebb and flow of releasing and accepting yet? Do you feel as if you are undulating in the vast sea of life as a single tendril of kelp clinging to the ocean floor while reaching for the sun? Yet we are so expansive in our own right within our existence. Keep moving with the ever changing current as the only thing you hold onto is your solid footing on the earth’s surface.

Can you feel the last remnants of hurt, resentment, and suffering flake off? Or did it peel like a separate layer of skin? Did it reverberate as a burst of energy shot it out of your very soul? Some like to release it to the moon, others to the earth.

Whatever works for you is how it was meant to be and it is alright. These releases come in many forms. Anger. Tears. Written words. Music. Dancing. Singing. Meditating. None is better than the other it just is. The sooner we accept ourselves and our process, the easier it is to let go.

Learn from your mistakes.
Forgive others for theirs.
Accept your emotions and how you process.
Practice healthy ways of being.
Let go and let love always be the answer.

M A N I F E S T

It began as just a flicker, and now it is a flame. It’s is billowing and glowing inside of you and expanding out into the universe. Keep fanning the flames of your heart and follow your passion. Let the light of your soul shine bright as you glide along the path you desire to tread upon. You are on your way to manifesting your purpose.

You have done it all along, and now you arrive at your conscious epicenter of your soul creating what you have always desired. A life you love. Soak up the rays of your own lights beauty and bask in its radiant glory.

Welcome home to the body you once felt was so foreign. Welcome to the life you have dreamed of for all these years. Welcome the power that has been awaiting your presence. Are you ready to manifest your greatness?

B A L A N C E

Last year, 2018 (2+0+1+8 = 1+1 = 2), was all about balance and relationships. We worked on how to balance all of our many facets of life such as work, school, family, friends, hobbies, sports, eating, spirituality, and self. As we learned what works and what does not work for us, we were able to create a schedule that allows us to have a balanced life. With relationships we learned how to put up boundaries, cut ties with those who were toxic, and cultivate those that were healthy.  So it’s kind of perfect that the last full moon of the winter of 2018 and first full moon of the spring of 2019 was in Libra.

Libra is our sign of balance and is ruled by air craving the need of understanding and knowledge. They are ruled by Venus so everything is done with love and passion. This full moon in Libra has helped us with the final release anything that is failing our sense of balance with our spheres in life, and any relationships that are hindering our growth. Letting go of these past constraints has been done in a gentle, loving manner so we can move forward into our first true days of 2019 as we enter spring.

E X P A N D

The spring equinox fully launches us into 2019 (2+0+1+9 = 1+2 = 3). The year of 3 is a time of great expansion, growth, travel, sociability, and creativity. We are being inspired to embrace our true form and extend it beyond ourselves into the world. As we shine our light, we are beckoning others who vibrate at the same frequency toward us. This is going to be an amazing year of making deep, solid connections and friendships at a soul level that will last throughout this lifetime.

As we expand our horizon among others, we are going to also expand ourselves to visit new places we have never explored and soak in the beauty that surrounds us on this earth. When we travel we learn how to survive, embrace other cultures, and see the world through a whole new lens allowing for inner growth as well!

This year also challenges us to be creative. When we create we are playful and are able to manifest many beautiful things. Maybe you’re inclined to create music, dance to express yourself, paint to share your vision of the world, write to expose your true feelings, speak to inspire others, or cook to show your appreciation and gratitude for food and your body.

There are so many ways we can be creative whether it is in our day-to-day work, seemingly daunting tasks such as cleaning (which can be fun!), or our beloved hobbies that enchant our souls. No matter what it is that calls to you, do it! And do it with love.

Mercury RX in Pisces 2019

Josephine Wall “Ocean of Dreams”

D I S C O V E R

This mercury retrograde is all about uncovering the true thoughts of your soul. What have you been suppressing and hiding from? Well, it’s about to all surface in a big way. Be prepared to feel tired, unhinged, and impatient as we explore the deep facets of our true form.

We have heard whispers and felt inklings of tugs and pulls this way and that the past 2 years of mercury retrogrades. We began at the surface as we fell apart, and now we are digging deep headed straight to the root of our problems within this life. Get ready to be soft, gentle, and kind to yourself through this process. There may be crying, yelling, cursing and a number of uncomfortable reactions as we bring this all to light. But that’s the purpose, right? To be light. To feel light. Both the warmth and brightness of the sun, and lifting the weight from our core to allow us to physically lighten as we let go of the heavy burdens of our past.

F O R G I V E N E S S

This word has a special meaning for me because I was able to forgive others, but never myself. Right now we are healing through this forgiveness of our decisions and everyone else’s that has caused us to hold onto these moments, these actions, these words that have caused us so much pain. As our bodies tense up at each of these memories we become more dense restricting oxygen flow as we slowly torture our bodies.

B R E A T H E

Let go. It’s okay to forgive. This process is not easy and you need to know that. Be patient with yourself when you don’t get over everything right away because that’s not how life works. Maybe there’s nothing that surfaces for you right away, and you don’t understand who you’re supposed to forgive. It will come. We need this so badly right now so we can fully enter the year of 3 at the beginning of the zodiac year on the day of the Spring Equinox.

Take your time.
Get your rest.
Cry your heart out.
Heal your soul.
You got this!

Pisces New Moon 2019

Are you ready to see yourself for who you really are? Or are you still in avoidance of your true form? Your soul has been watching and waiting patiently. Eager to shatter every idea you have about yourself and the world. Ready to break free of the constraints and limitations that have been holding you back, keeping you stagnant, and burning you out.

Can you hear it calling? Can you feel it’s warm loving embrace? Can you see your true reflection of the effervescent beauty that is you? Are you ready to invite your higher self, your true form, your soul into your consciousness? Are you ready to let go and allow all that is meant to be come to fruition? Are you ready to have the life you have always desired in exactly the way you need? Are you ready to embrace your purpose and live it every single moment for the rest of your life?

Take a deep breath. It is all going to be okay. You have so much power. You have so much love. You have so much truth within you ready to grace the world with your unwavering presence. Allow your light to shine and your heart to follow. Embrace who you are for it is exactly who you are meant to be.

New Moon in Scorpio

Antahkarana – Spiral of Spiritual Illumination Energy

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!

Mars Retrograde

Photographer: Unknown, Artist: Unknown, Edited by Eternal Waking Beauties

Mars: The Forgotten God

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.

Full Cold Gemini Moon

Artist Unknown. Photographer Unknown. Edited by Eternal Waking Beauties

Wednesday, December 3, 2017 7:48 am

Cold Moon

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 Retrograde

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.

Planetary Aspects

Artist: Cafe Astrology

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.

Ceremony Tools

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.

Frost Full Taurus Moon 2017

Frost Moon

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.

Planetary Aspects

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.

Ceremony Tools

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.
