I emailed my first ever New Moon readings to friends this weekend – feels good to share my thoughts and true spirit with the new Moon energy flying around. This was what i sent:
For those of you who know me (or know of me) you may know that I have been paying attention to the cycles of the moon and their meanings / relations to my life for over the past year. I have used multiple sources regarding the moon phases that have helped me dig a little deeper into certain areas of my life each month that corresponded to stresses or issues I was dealing with. By having my issues explained or released by the energy of the different moon cycles I have grown a hell of a lot, and have really just gotten to know myself better and that alone helps me really get psyched about my life and makes everything I do even more meaningful.
I decided to start sharing this information in order to further my own growth, but also in the hopes of helping someone else get to the roots of their personal development, release stresses or clue in to some deeper understanding of the universe and feel those spiritual vibes!!
Sometimes what I say according to your sun sign may not resonate with you right away that’s normal, feel free to look at what I write for your moon or rising sign as well, you can find out what those are by creating a natal chart @ http://astro.cafeastrology.com/natal.php ! At the very least you might be amused at the coincidences of some of these facts I throw at you.
I add tips, suggested activities or a mantra at the end of the description if any of you feel the need to do something to release tension or stress you may be feelin’
Disclaimer: These facts are not completely my own, I refer to multiple books and websites and add my own intuitive suggestions based on those. Feel free to share this if ya want. I’m trying to not be embarrassed about my astro vibes. Also feel free to ask me questions or even get a tarot reading if something in your life is really eating at you.
Thanks for reading and I hope this serves ❤ ❤
Let me just go over a few things first…
Why is the Moon so important?
Well you know how all the planets correspond to certain things like Venus is love and relationships, and Mercury is communication? Well the moon corresponds to emotions. So when it reaches its height at the Full Moon and when it starts its new cycle at the New Moon certain our Emotions are heightened as well.
What the fuck are The Houses and what do they have to do with the Moon?
The emotions being heighted and effected by the Moon phases are not the same for everyone. They are different for each sign. The moon is in a different “house” for each sign. And The Houses are basically there helping us pin point the cause or subject of the emotion you might be feeling brought on by the moon. So Simply put the Moon = Emotion Houses= Subject of the Emotion
Fun analogies that I came up with to understand what The Houses are better that were too good not to include in this newsletter are:
– Like how in Harry Potter each character’s values and morals can be revealed by knowing what House they were in at Hogwarts. (that comparison is for you Nicole 😉)
– You can also think of it as the Moon being and actor, lets say… Zac Efron and The House it is in being what character or persona he is taking on.
What does the New Moon mean?
Ultimately the new moon represents a new lunar cycle. This new cycle also brings opportunity for us to welcome in a new cycle within our lives. It gives us a good chance to get clear with what we want in a certain area of our lives, manifest a bit or get in tune with our goals. This is the perfect time to make new moon wishes and set intentions. Each house here then tells you which area may be good to focus on either because you want to or because you have neglected it recently. It’s ultimately time to check in.
Monday August 21st, New Moon in Leo
Okay, so I picked a hell of a Cycle to start writing these news letters because this is a huge month. Not only is it the Second New Moon in Leo in row, it is also a solar eclipse This means overall Everyone is experiencing huge change. This change maybe more internal or mental, everyone seems to be making secret plans for their future, constructing dream senarios in their head and slowly making movements into making them a reality. This is due to the solar eclipse, and the changes we make during this new cycle, the intentions we set for ourselves are set up to achieve long term success! Many astrologers look at the Solar Eclipses as a chance to Reset in almost every aspect of our lives (some even celebrate it as a mini New Year!), my readings below are more like a guide to where to start looking to reset or refresh in your life based on where the moon is in realtion to your sign!
More info about the special New Moon Solar eclipse can be read here: http://astrologyking.com/solar-eclipse-august-2017/
Finally here are the New Moon Readings corresponding to your Zodiac sign, I always find it helpful to look at my Moon and rising sign as well to get a look at the bigger picture – especially with the eclipse as a lot more then just one aspect is being highlighted for everyone.
And, before you get confused. Yes, I did correspond most to a Zac Efron Reference/Character – it was fun.
Leo: Leo Rising
Moon in your First House
Breaking Free: This New Moon is all about how you are representing yourself to the world. You may want to focus on your outer appearance, or on how a specific person sees you right now. Think of Troy Bolton, preforming Breaking free in front of all his class mates and father, officially coming out as an athlete who loves to sing. As a Leo myself last month this energy made me become more open about who I am spiritually, it made me make this newsletter! Overall, now is a good time for leos to shine a light on a different part of themselves and show it to the world. Or reflect on who it is you really want to be, for some it may mean making an effort to change how the world sees you.
Tips: Take this new moon as an opportunity for a new beginning, set intentions for who you intend to be for the next month, next year or next whatever.
Tip 2: TREAT YOUR SELF.
Virgo: Virgo Rising
This new moon is about you. The REAL you. Like deep down, your most secret self. You may be feeling need to hide away, have some time alone – you may have been feeling this for the past few weeks even. This New Moon brings the opportunity for you to find some inner peace. This crazy energy may be because it’s the end of a larger lunar cycle for you -next month the New Moon will be in your first house where you will get a good burst of energy and light shining on the outer you and you will be back to feelin’ yourself soon enough! If you’re feeling conflict with your need to retreat, remember that it’s okay to distance yourself in order to recharge and search for inner peace.
This time also brings some reflection on your dreams or unconscious self, bringing stuff to the surface that is worth considering. What are you dreaming about? Callin’ up a hot dude? Or writing your own novel? Applying for a different job? Now is a good time to seriously consider those dream as a potential reality.
Tips: Go over the last year, think of what went right and what you are proud of.
Think of your dreams. What small step could you make now towards making them come true?
Libra: Libra Rising
Zac Efron In High School Musical 2: Where he neglects his friends in order to pursue those rich basketball sponsors and Gabriella ends up breaking up with him.
The Moon is currently in your house of Friendships and Hopes and Dreams. This is pretty rad because ultimately you can wish for anything!! Like Troy Bolton that summer you are seeing the possibilities of life ahead of you. This over all feeling may have brought you closer to friends – your feel good energy creating a bubble of good vibes or, your dreams may have been feeling so big that you have started to feel a little lonely. If you happen to be feeling down in the dumps when it comes to friendships, you may need to pay more attention to your social life. You may have felt lately that you have had to go through something alone, this is not the case. Reach out to who ever it is you’ve been missing, get in touch with an old friend, feel the love!!!
Tips: Go out. As a libra, you are super lovable and easy to like remind your self of how awesome you are and what you go to offer.
Scorpio: Scorpio Rising
Zac Efron in We Are Your Friends. This New Moon is in your career and reputation zone, expect a change or desire to get ahead professionally. You may be feeling that you want to make an impact on the world or your work place in a big way. This may be a good time to confidently apply for a job, or take that next step toward you dream occupation. Also, a good time to check in that you aren’t taking things tooooo seriously. Maybe you are in the right place and killing it at work but feel the need to do MORE and you think things are moving too slow, calm down know that everything happens with in its time and keeping that confidence and drive is good enough.
As a Scorpio Moon for example I feel this energy pushing me too make small steps towards my dream job (writing regularly) but this moon reminds me to not get too upset when the rest of my life distracts me from those future career goals.
Tips: Meditate with the visual of your dream job, are you doing it for the right reasons, does it make you feel good?
Mantra: Hard work humbles me.
The Moon in your 9th house of Philosophy. Think of it as Zac Efron In High School Musical 3. Troy is going off to college, really taking a look at the rest of his life, how far he believes his relationships with his friends will go and what he really wants to do. (I think, I haven’t seen this movie in forever.)
Anyways, that’s you. Looking at the big picture, your beliefs and dreams and how they work together. You may be looking for some truth or spiritual nourishment again this month – or something that will quench your thirst for life and charge up those dreams. There is A LOT going on here because the 9th house is rules by Sagittarius and your planet Jupiter so you guys are feeling it big time. This can make many Sag’s feel uneasy and restless but just remember that your dreams and thoughts that seem slightly out of reach and that frustrate you are worth it, they are the seeds of your big future ahead. But what can you do about this restlessness? Balance. In order to manifest your big future, you gotta see the good in what is around you. What is working for you right now? What good things do you have going on, what are you grateful for? Because often, once you show some gratitude for what you got- the world hits you with more to be grateful for.
This New Moon:
Reflect on what makes you feel adventurous maybe even make plans for a new adventure (in the future or even this weekend in your own town, adventure can be found anywhere).
** side note to Sag – Another issue may be that you need to communicate your big dreams and need for adventure talk it out with a friend – you don’t have to be clear about your desires, you can even talk about how unclear your thoughts about your dreams are. But I bet that some of the tension you guys are feeling can be released by a nice convo on dreams and motivations with your best friend (or even someone completely new)!
Capricorn: Capricorn Rising
Moon in your 8th house of transformation!!
This my fave house. Transformation, the house of birth and death, life cycles. There is lots of opportunity for some real yummy change here for you Capricorns. Transformation could represent itself in a few ways, is something new and exciting making its way into your life \? you could make new wishes to make it go well. OR is it time to let go of something, a habit, a thought process, a dude? This is the time to take some steps toward change or acknowledge the steps you have taken towards letting go – making that thing die. This house is also one of the more complex, you may be feeling reluctant to admit to change, unsure if you’re really ready for it or if you have actually been making progress well, you fucking are dude. This house always reminds me of Dumbledore’s Pheonix, birth and death not nessesariy being a true ending or beginning to the phoenix’s life cycle. Like the phoenix from the phoenix we learn that these big transformations are all connected and not quite grand distinct serprations from what / where we used to be. My advice would be to get out of your head and write down some of your thoughts on paper, make a list, recognize they way you have been transforming and set intentions to keep at those transformations. Has the way you’ve been transforming been so subtle that you didn’t notice until you thought about it right now?
There is probably a better Zac Efron movie to relate this theme to but I’m gonna go with Hairspray because Without Love is my Jam. This New Moon is bringing up issues In your House of love and relationships. Making this the perfect time to resolve some issues with significant others or friendships. The
Solar Eclipse may be calling for you to take an extra deep look at how these relationships help with your future goals and big picture plans. Do you see these relationships as a big part of your future? Are there still things from the past that you need to let go of in order to create harmony in your relationships this month? Or any adjustments to be made or time to be spent with a friend you haven’t had time for lately? This is the perfect time to free yourself of the past and rededicate yourself or re-establish you bond with those you have close relationships with. As an Aquarius one of your most dominating traits is friendliness, which suggests that any approach to your relationships should come naturally and end on a positive note.
Baywatch Zac Efron. I haven’t actually seen the movie but at least you get a nice visual.
This month brings in a focus on your daily work an health. It’s a good time to think over your current routine and ask yourself if there is enough balance between work and play? Have you been looking after your self enough? Perfect time to reward yourself if you have been treating your self well and eatin’ good or the perfect time to make plans to dedicate your self to a new healthy or satisfying habit that you have tried out this month.
Tips: – Think up a healthy routine to dedicate yourself to the next two weeks / month. Like biking, meditation or replacing that Friday night treat with a healthier alternative!
Lets be real, with you Aries’ when is life not about fun? This month is
Zac Efron in Neighbours all the way. Here, your creative or romantic mind may be getting worked up or you may be needing to express a little bit of your inner child. Go for it. Find something fun to do, laugh a lot and have a good time with the people you love. You may also find this month as a good opportunity to work on creative skills projects, feeling inspired to paint something or redecorate your room? The Solar eclipse suggest that you may want to bring more creative or romantic elements that you have been thinking of into the big picture the rest of the year. Got a skill you want to improve? Look up classes! If it is the Romance side of this house that has been on your mind maybe start a special weekly/ monthly tradition with your significant other (or best friend, or yourself). Life is as fun as you make it and you got plenty of ways to get creative.
Things to do: Laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh.
Mantra: Life is good.
Taurus: Taurus Rising
17 Again Zac Efron where he is trying to put his family back together and actually starts to get to know them better then he did as Mathew Perry.
The Moon is in your 4th house of Home and Family. With the energy of the solar eclipse this is time to re-evaluate what home and family means to you. In our 20s Home and Family tends to get a little muddled, we are drifting from our biological family and childhood homes, creating a space and choosing a famiy for our selves. This can bring up tensions and a feeling of disconnect. This would be the perfect time to priorities those people in your life who feel like family and make some time for them. Set intentions to give them more attention this new cycle or show them you love them. This house also focuses down on the home it’s self, no is a good time to really look at your living situation and if it is the right fit, does it feel like home? Are you welcome here? How are you making the space a true home?
Now would be a good time to make your house a little more home-y. have some family over, make a memory, or buy more candles. Hug your loved ones real tight.
Gemini : Gemini Rising
GEMINI IN THE HOUSSE. This is a huge month for you. The moon is in your 3rd house of communication ruled by Mercury which is also the planet that rules you Geminis which makes me feel that this cycle in particular will seem very busy for you. Now is a good time to wish/ set intentions for the ability to communicate yourself clearly and lovingly – or what ever way you intent to communicate. Now is the perfect time to get honest with others as the Solar eclipse is working to help us reset out habits and mindsets. Somethings that I would suggest to reflect on are: Are speaking your truth, and if not, why not? What is holding you back from speaking your mind? ALSO. What good is communication without listening? Are you taking time to truly listen to others and what they are trying to tell you (about themselves, about the world, about the freaking weather)?
Things to do: If you mean to communicate something that you know may actually do more harm then good – write it in a letter – get that truth out, then burn it, cut it up – at least those thoughts will be released and not blocking your throat chakra anymore!
Also, recognize those steps you have taken so far to communicate better. Have you made someone feel really good about themselves by telling them how much appreciate them? shared a secret recently? Shown some humility? Those moments are KILLER and so important because they truly show love and growth and the universe loves you for them.
This month is gonna be reflective on your cash money zone, there may be internal debate on if you really are reaping what you sow. This is a good time to wish for financial abundance and set out intentions on starting over financially or creating a healthy financial habit. As most of the receivers of this email may be students I think it is safe to say that you may be feeling slight pressure financially coming up, with the end of summer approaching. Maybe you thought you would have saved more but spent to much money on beer, or maybe you have extra cash and wanna treat yourself but that motherly part of your nature is thinking you shouldn’t be reckless. Be kind to yourself and remind yourself that you are worth it, you work hard. Find a balance between treating yourself and making proactive choices when it comes to money.
Good time to: Put some money into a savings account or that secret piggy bank.
Compromise on a treat, (back to school sale discounts oh yeaaaa)
