Ever see a spread on pinterest or tumblr and think “I wanna try that?” and yet it’s stupidly hard to get into? Like reading a book or a watching a movie that is dragging slowly. You want to finish it but it’s just not happening. Let’s be honest: sometimes you’re distracted and that’s why nothing’s […]
Tonight’s Full Moon shines bright in the expansive and optimistic sign of Sagittarius. Our days continue to grow longer and warmer here in the Northern Hemisphere as we get closer and closer to the Summer solstice happening later this week.
As the days get brighter and busier, it’s more important than ever to take the time to appreciate the sweeter things in life.
The Honey Moon is known by many names in various cultures… it’s sometimes referred to as the Strawberry Moon, Rose Moon, and the Mead Moon. The one thing that each of these names has in common… sweetness!
This Full Moon in Sagittarius has us looking at the bigger picture with greater ease than ever before. While making detailed future plans might be hard right now, looking at your present situation or even your past under the light of Sagittarius can help you realize just how far you have come in the last year or even 6 months!
This Full Moon is also being influenced by expansive Jupiter and dreamy Neptune which brings us a heightened sense of abundance, brighter optimism and enhanced intuition for the rest of June.
During this Full Moon, our intuition and divination skills will be enhanced. Sagittarius ramps up our curiosity and has us wanting to explore our inner worlds with a fiery enthusiasm. Keep an open mind this week and get to know yourself and others better. There is a combination of wanting new adventures and connections, while also coming to know yourself better.

Libra Full Moon 29° in House 6
Aries Sun 29° in House 12
April 19th Lunar Themes: Optimism, resourcefulness, inspiration, encouragement, a new creative start. Opportunity for growth, and increased communications. April 19th Lunar Shadow Themes: Broken agreements, negative attention, lack of commitment, a lack of drive, and gossip.
27 Day Libra Full Moon Themes: Opportunity, a developmental stage, all forms of partnerships, agreements and contracts. Negotiations, new locations, and moving. 27 Day Libra Shadow Full Moon Themes: Impatience, fear, dead end situations, domination, restriction, and travel difficulties.
This 2nd Libra/ Oshun Full Moon brings a dynamic moon time for many of us because it points towards the cosmic doorway leading to great abundance. The keyword is “abundance” we must be wise and alert to what type of abundance we’re creating or open to receive. Not all abundance is good, not all abundance is bad. Because an abundance of growth in any direction negative and positive is available to us. We must be careful not to run from our responsibilities.
During these 27 lunar days some people will have to address their fears. Fears regarding a need to change, the fear of trusting in their own abilities, the fear of making important decisions, the fear of loss and so on. Oshun/ Libra Moon 29° represents our internal collective drive and consciousness, and this specific type of Oshun/Libra moon’s persona longs for some form of freedom to experience. She enjoys holding her own, and she’ll create these experiences either through an act of grace or immoral force either way doesn’t concern her as long as her desire is met.
Therefore, we too have an inner drive for change and balance and if we’re not careful our subconscious and conscious minds will create those adjustments and revolutions by any means necessary.
During these 27 lunar days some of us will struggle with combating our fear about reaching our individual and collective progression or success. This Oshun/Libra 29° moon can be the doorkeeper for dangerous times, and can herald a time of psychosis, a weak moral compass and problematic disruptive feminine and masculine energies. Both Sun in Aries and Moon in Libra are 29° and both planets are residing in houses which require a lot of personal attention and healing, houses 6 and 12. So we must be prepared for sudden changes, as well as standing guard against emotional and psychological tricks. The positive side of this Oshun/Libra 29° moon time is an increased ability to solve problems.
Upcoming Lunar Experiences and Expressions
Be Alert ~ Be Aware ~ Be Focused
1.) Some people during these 27 days will find themselves in need of a good rest and a time out period. If we ignore these messages to rest during this lunar time, we may be forced to do so. Libra looks to rectify and balance all things, therefore some people will be ready to set down roots, either through marriage, a new home, moving to another location, or taking a needed vacation.
2.) Some people will have an increased sensitivity to their environment, to food and their emotions, i.e. feeling ultra-sensitive. Libra in house 6 brings us face to face with our 5 senses which at this point becomes heighted and can trigger health issues, and sharper psychic abilities. But there’ll also likely be an increased awareness of what we personally need with the desire to create a happy, desirable space for ourselves and others.
3.) Some people will likely experience major transformations which will either be liberating or caustic, fearful, and challenging. This is due to the karmic energy of Pluto’s influence on both the sun and moon which are squaring Pluto and creates a destiny changer for many of us.
Moon (Yemoja) square Pluto (Oya) -intense emotional expressions and experiences come under this transit. Manipulation, dangerous sexual passions, abuse, jealousy, and a devouring, destruction behavior can also manifest with this transit.
Sun (Sango/ Orunmila/ Olofi) square Pluto (Oya) -under this transit a person can become fearless to the point of being ruthless in their determination for authority, power, and control. Psychological issues once ignored can surface and will demand rectifying.
This moon and sun at 29° sits at the threshold of a cosmic door way which means any changes to happen in our lives is unavoidable. Something will have to be released in order for us to move forward. But when we are consciously aware of upcoming or ongoing shifts that are happening. We can choose to some degree what part we’ll play in this transformation.
Moon(Yemoja) sextile Jupiter(Obatala) brings a sociable, friendly experience and a lot of positive energy. Generosity and friendship is strong under this transit.
Venus (Oshun) sextile Pluto (Oya) draws intensive feelings of love, commitment, fulfillment and passion into one’s life. This aspect can increase the abundance of prosperity, and wealth. Whatever one wants to uncover, discover, or obtain this is the transit to put the work in to receive it.

Discard both the candle and Palo Santo stick the day after your ceremony is completed by placing them in a brown paper bag and twist the ends shut. You can throw the bag in the trash away from the house or in the garbage directly outside of the house.
This moon ceremony is done to increase opportunities, and courage. To open doors of positive possibilities, to increase our ability to intuit divine messages, for protection and to confront fear. All done for our highest good.
For my Ausar Auset friends, the Herukhuti element shows up in this moon ceremony.

The Astronomy and Astrology of
Quaoar (pronounced kwah-whar) was the name given to the “creation force” by the Native American Tongva tribe who were the original inhabitants of the Los Angeles basin in Southern California—several thousand years ago when the LA basin was a vast and lush willow forest. According to legend, Quaoar, “came down from heaven; and, after reducing chaos to order, laid out the world on the back of seven giants. He then created the lower animals, and then (or from them) humankind.”
Quaoar was discovered by Mike Brown, a professor of planetary science at the California Institute of Technology and colleague Chad Trujillo in a digital image taken June 4, 2002, 05:41:40 UT from the Palomar Observatory 48-inch Oschin telescope in California. Quaoar was identified in the image on June 5, 2002, 10:48:08 PDT (the best discovery time to use for astrological purposes).

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – I have been a huge practitioner of divination for myself and for my clients and apprentices, so much so, that I have them as part of my folk healing medicine bag. I have done many different kinds of divination and worked with the public, but in the last ten years, I have limited it just a few main root divinations.
I started paying attention divination early, around sixteen, because I watched my eldest sister, who was almost thirty learn and read both the Tarot and the I-Ching on New Years Day and throughout the year. At seventeen, my second eldest sister exposed me to more astrology divination, as she started studying astrology, and took me to some of her Astrology meetings back in 1975 when I was still in high school. I was influenced in a good way by my two beautiful sisters which I…
