Second New Moon of Summer, Eclipse and Talisman of Saturn 2018

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings dreamers, artists and moon people, we begin our 2nd New Moon of Summer with a Solar Eclipse, and a six pointed star (pentagram) called the Talisman of Saturn in astrology, on Thursday, 12 July 2018. This is typically the Leo Moon cycle, but since we have periods of time when astrological sun-signs get misaligned (every few years), the new moon is at 20º Cancer instead of Leo. I don’t use astrology as my guide anymore in moon work, I use the moon and where she fits in her seasonal journey as a living guide to help with our practices of healing and awareness.

Our second moons of Summer are ruled by the elements of fire, translating into symbolism of internal drama, dram mirrors, creativity and children or our inner child along side our good intention with some complications. This is our true “Midsummer” because…

New Moon, Solar Eclipse, Pluto ~ Do I need to say more?

Dear all,
If your answer was “yes!” — here it is:
This New Moon and partial Solar Eclipse, happening in the sign of Cancer, with opposition from Pluto retrograde, may bring out some unresolved issues to the forefront.
Because Pluto is retrograde, this means it will be something you are already familiar with and because the Sun and the Moon are involved, it may affect your confidence, vitality, your emotions, or your subconscious. The exact field of life it will affect will depend on your natal chart.
The keywords for Pluto are control, power, and transformation, and in the order I’ve listed them, they indicate the rise from the lower to the higher energies. So if any issues of control or power-plays (or fears) arise, you will want to think of how they can be transformed and that will shift your personal energy.
Direct influence of this energy is on Thursday and Friday, and this would be a perfect time to have an energy session, as any change you want to make will be able to deeper than usual.
This is not a good time to begin anything new and it would be better to wait till Saturday, when a supportive Venus – Saturn connection makes it a good day for laying any foundations for whatever you want to have a long-term success with.
Crystals to work with: Dravite, multi-colored Tourmaline, Scepter Quartz
Till next time, stay happy and healthy!

First New Moon of Summer

By Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain –Greetings dreamers, healers, artists and moon people, we now enter our  first of “Three Moons of Summer” which begins June 13, 2018 and then the Summer Solstice, Thursday, June 21st(Northern Hemisphere 3:07 am pdt). Our three moons of Spring have completed with six intentions total and I am sure you did your workings to become more aware of your fears even if you didn’t approach them yet. Even a small amount of what you are personally working on with more understanding helps alleviate some stress. Review your last three intentions and full moon release intentions and review the insights you have at the door of the summer moons.

With the solstice, we meet the second half of the season, the “Season of Fire”. For those unfamiliar with my terminology, I work with the way our ancestral past did under grandmothers leadership (long ago), before we…

Aries New Moon Crystals

By Krista Mitchell

Ok, so you know all of those changes you keep meaning to make, but somehow just haven’t put in place yet? Or maybe there’s that one big step you have to take to get things started (or ended), but it’s a gutsy move, and you just haven’t felt ready yet?

Well, get ready.

This upcoming new moon in Aries (Sunday 4/15 at 9:57pm ET) delivers the energy, motivation, and guts you need for creating much needed change.

This new cycle of manifestation (new moon), start of the astrological new year, AND mercury going direct, combined with Aries’ characteristics of action and courage, all lead up to endless possibilities and opportunities to recreate.

I’ve felt this influence already in my own life: getting things moving, starting things up, moving things forward.

But this moon isn’t just about the new: it’s about revisiting the old in new ways. Breakthroughs, second chances, opportunities re-imagined and reclaimed, as well as last-minute solutions, may all present themselves at this time.

It’s definitely a time to not only reflect on what’s not working in your life, but to make some decisions as to what you can do about it, and then taking real action.

Learn from past mistakes, try thinking differently, and approach things from a new perspective or with a new plan of attack. This isn’t the time to do things in a way you’ve done before, or to listen to what other people are telling you to do.

Be bold. Be big. Be brave. Be YOU, and claim this opportunity to reinvent, recreate, re-vision, and live more in alignment with your own inner truth. It’s not always an easy thing to do, so it’s best to do it at times when the Universe has your back.

THE QUALITIES OF ARIES + PLANETARY INFLUENCES

  • Aries: action, impulse, expressing your true self, individualism, courage, change
  • Uranus: freedom, surprises, higher mind/intellect
  • Mercury going direct: clarity, conclusion

ARIES NEW MOON THEMES

  • following your heart + intuition
  • living your own truth
  • persistence pays off, as long as you don’t keep making the same mistakes twice!
  • re-starts
  • beginner’s mind, fresh perspective
  • learning from your past mistakes or failures
  • thinking differently
  • trusting in your own divine insight
  • breakthroughs
  • a second chance at opportunities thought lost
  • creating change
  • breaking long-term habits
  • shift in attitude(s)
  • self-development
  • making yourself and your priorities #1

Second New Moon of Spring

by Elder Mountain Dreaming

Elder Mountain Dreaming @ gmail

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings artists, dreamers and lunar muses, I hope that your last moon cycle was supported, slightly challenging and you recognized at least one awareness or change, in a positive letting go. As we build our emotional foundation for the year, we start in the fullness of the second of three spring moons. Our Second New Moon of Spring starts April 15, 2018. We continue to build our practice of emotional and soul awareness. If you are new to this work-study, the link to the basics is at the end.

Our moon cycle starts us off with Sun, Moon and our crazy uncle Uranus – all conjunct in Aries and this energy means its time for change, change, change. Wherever Uranus shows up, the clock in the hallway starts chiming its eerie sounds for no reason, as the lightning god is sure to come find us…

New Moon In Aries ~ What Needs To Change?

Dear all,
So all of you know by now that the New Moon time is a time to start fresh, but did you know that this energy will be tripled this Sunday?!
The New Moon happens on the same day when Mercury goes direct, it makes a powerful and a rare connection to Uranus, a planet of sudden change, and all three (+ the Sun) are in the sign of new beginnings!
If you have been feeling stuck in any area of your life, now is the time when things will finally start to move and maybe even faster than you’d want them to.
The strong Fire Element will provide the unstoppable energy of renewed excitement and passion, so if that’s what you had needed — you can look forward to it!
You can help it along by actively looking at what is it that you want to changewhile you hold Moldavite, Pietersite, or Blue Tourmaline (listed in order of intensity).
For some this change might be sudden or unexpected and if that is you, you can work with the smoky Quartz and Black Agate to feel more grounded.
The energy this whole weekend is quite supportive of any long-term transformation you want to make, so you can already start doing whatever you feel will move things along.
This is a great time to check out my “Awaken the Queen Within” program, which supports all your goals on a vibrational level so everything becomes easier to do http://crystalcosmopolitan.com/awaken-queen-within-program/
And I have a quick question for those you who are local:
I am putting together a schedule of crystal workshops for the rest of the year, some of them ones I’ve offered before and some new ones.
What topics would you like to see featured?
As always,
stay happy and healthy!

Pisces New Moon Crystals

By Krista Mitchell

pisces new moon crystals / krista-mitchell.com

We entered the Pisces new moon phase this morning at 9:12am ET, and I’ve been feeling the energy all day: dreamy, contemplative, quiet

This moon is said to be one of deep healing, guiding us to face our inner darkness, acknowledge our truth, and what we’re willing to let go so that we can move forward in a positive way

This is a time when new projects started will be blessed with beneficence, provided the intentions and goals you set are done so with mindfulness and consciousness about what you’re seeking to (co-) create.

At this time, you may be feeling moody, blue, insightful, drawn inward, or guided to make some healing decisions in your life. It’s best to honor those feelings.

Take time to journal, dream, or deep-dive into issues you’ve been afraid or unwilling to face.

Shadow self healing, acknowledging and addressing your wounded self and psyche, can seem like a daunting task, but it offers the ultimate reward: FREEDOM. Freedom from the same old patterns and mistakes, the negative opinion of yourself, the fear that holds you back, the resentment that keeps you tied down, and the thing that blocks your happiness.

It’s worth it, and the energy of this new moon in Pisces is supporting you in doing that work so that you’re prepared for a massive new change and fresh start coming your way.

THE QUALITY OF PISCES + CURRENT PLANETARY INFLUENCES:

  • Pisces: intuition + psychic abilities, liberty, artistic + creative pursuits, sensitivity, empathy, healing, introversion.
  • Chiron: the wounded healer, the gift
  • Mars: initiation, action
  • Jupiter: beneficence, auspiciousness, abundance

PISCES NEW MOON THEMES:

  • setting new intentions that feel more in alignment with your true self
  • auspicious timing for new projects
  • becoming more conscious about what you’re cultivating or creating in your life
  • deciding on what you’re ready to let go, so that you can start or receive something better
  • putting firm boundaries in place with yourself and others
  • recognizing what needs to be healed within on a deep level
  • cultivating a greater sense of compassion for yourself and others
  • surrendering the choices or behaviors that are holding you back
  • having the courage to face things that are difficult for you
  • acknowledging your own truth or owning your inner darkness
  • completion
  • taking time out for silence and introspection

PISCES NEW MOON CRYSTALS:

Hold and meditate, sleep with, or wear one or more of the following crystals for emotional support, inner guidance, to increase your intuition, deepen your insight, or to generate even more auspicious energy for a new project:

What They All Have in Common . . . New Moon in Aquarius

By Brana Mijatovic, Ph.D.

Take a look at the crystals in this email: what do they have in common?
You guessed it — all are offbeat, original, unusual . . . one could even say — physically impossible — and yet that is how they naturally developed!
What they have in common is that they apparently did not get the memo on how to grow in expected ways, like other crystals . . .
This is how you may want to think of yourself after this New Moon / partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius.
This New Moon / partial Solar Eclipse in Aquarius is on Thursday, Feb 15 at 4pm encourages us to open up to
  • new ways of thinking about our hopes, wishes, and dreams
  • expressing ourselves in all the ways that make us unique
  • change in how we view and how we build the supportive structures in our lives
  • investigate the possibilities for communicating our ideas at a larger scale
  • looking into new ways through which we can spread progressive ideas
  • envisioning a creation of communities that will promote greater awareness of all that is beneficial for humanity
  • working together and collaborating in new ways for higher ideals and a greater good
Crystals to help with these are Herkimer Diamond, Moldavite, Chevron Amethyst, Chrysocolla, Clear Quartz (Scepter formation) . . .

January 2018 Capricorn New Moon

By Krista Mitchell

Crystal Support for the Capricorn 2018 New Moon

The new moon in Capricorn, sign of ambition, industry and goals, happens this Tuesday January 16th at 9:17pm ET.

What to be aware of for this new moon:

  • This new moon phase is being described as a “rollercoaster”. With six planets sitting in the sign and the building of eclipse season energy, the next few days could feel tumultuous and overwhelming, potentially giving rise to conflicts and endings in your relationships, friendships, careers, lifestyles, travel plans, and home life.
  • While this new moon comes at the start of the year, a time when you may feel the need to be proactive in planning and pursuing your goals for the year, the emphasis is on going within, taking care of yourself, and focusing on introspection, contemplation, and meditation until a couple of days after the new moon.
  • There may be a tendency to act impulsively, feel fatigued, irritable, and argumentative, so the more you can give yourself quiet time, self-care and nourishment, and solitude, the better.
  • Intuition, insight, and sensitivity will be heightened at this time, and steps taken in the next few days will initiate major shifts in your life that can have very happy and beneficial results IF you work at remaining grounded, rational, and balanced when making decisions.

Overall guidance for this new moon in Capricorn: take these next few days as an opportunity to find quiet time, amp up your self-care routine, connect with your inner wisdom, and invest in your soul journey, and all will work out for the best! 🙂
