🌑 SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON 🌑
etherealculture.com/sagittariusnewmoon-2018
.
The Sagittarius New Moon arrives tonight, at 11:20pm Pacific Time, marking a powerful moment for manifestation. Expansive Jupiter forms a conjunction with the Moon, bestowing us with gold light and good fortune. Now is the perfect time to set intentions for the coming year. We’re looking to the sky, releasing limiting beliefs that still hold us back from our truest potentials. We’re calling in the highest versions of ourselves, our relationships, and all aspects of our lives—understanding that anything is possible if we can break free of fear, addictions, and self-defeatism.
.
Where are we still telling ourselves that we’re unworthy or crazy? That our dreams are impossible to manifest? How are we still filling our voids, rather than approaching situations from wholeness and peace? This New Moon is helping us claim what’s rightfully ours, while anchoring to our stillness, true power, and quiet resolve 🏹🌑✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/sagittariusnewmoon-2018

🏹 ASTROLOGY OF DECEMBER 🏹
etherealculture.com/december2018
.
December begins with Sagittarius the Centaur guiding us toward brighter skies, after a year of deep shadow work. Jupiter has now shifted from Scorpio into Sagittarius, lightening the collective energies. But with Mercury retrograde and Venus returning to Scorpio today, we still have a week to clear up any confusion or turmoil that remains, particularly around communication and relationships. It’s been lonely and challenging times, but we’re now ready to connect with our inspiration, joy, and optimism.
.
With Mars conjunct Neptune, it could still feel difficult to find our way out of the fog. Luckily, Mercury stations direct the first week of December, helping us find our bearings after six months of retrogrades. This is a good time to set pure intentions for the New Year, feeling into our wildest dreams and ideals. Meanwhile, we’re raising our sites from our own navels to our communities and the collective well-being. How can we come together in love, compassion, and healing? Patriarchy is upending and the feminine is still finding her throne. No one is at the helm and our only choice is to listen to our own inner authority—questioning our philosophies and solid beliefs while dissolving our dogma and rigidity... 🏹✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/december2018

JUPITER IN SAGITTARIUS
etherealculture.com/jupiterinsagittarius-2018
.
We’re now a few weeks into Jupiter’s yearlong journey through Sagittarius. Can you feel it? After a year of major shadow work, Jupiter finally left Scorpio’s intensity on November 8.
.
Since October 2017, we've been diving deep, confronting personal and collective demons. Now, our arrows are lifting, pointing toward the horizon. We’re adjusting our eyes to the bright light of optimism, expansion, and truth.
.
Following our heaviest work, a peak of hope has emerged. We’re ready to embrace the freedom and spontaneity of Sagittarius, which means opening to the present moment—understanding that our journey is the goal. We can celebrate the mere act of walking our paths, relishing our adventures and any discoveries we make along the way.
.
Tomorrow, Mercury retrograde and Venus return to Scorpio. This means we still have work to do, and pain to face—particularly around relationships. But we can trust that whatever darkness we embrace will allow us to open to equal amounts of light… 🏹 ✨Read more about Jupiter in Sagittarius in my article: etherealculture.com/jupiterinsagittarius-2018

The 🌕 GEMINI FULL MOON 🌕 arrives tonight at 9:39pm Pacific Time. Mercury is in retrograde, Mars in Pisces, and Jupiter just moved into Sagittarius, conjuncting the Sun. The themes now have to do with communication and expanding our minds. We have the capacity to push beyond our limited scopes, widening our viewpoints to incorporate greater knowledge and wisdom. At the same time, the planets are encouraging us to see where we’ve been wrong, releasing our dogma and divisive thinking.
.
As Mercury retrogrades through Sagittarius, our ideologies and philosophies are up for review. We may notice our firmly held beliefs bubbling to the surface, ready to dissolve.
.
Luckily, Mars in Pisces is squaring the Moon, softening us. We might feel extra dreamy, confused, or even intoxicated. But the enlightened potential is for us to release any stubbornness in our minds. We’re opening our hearts to compassion, adapting our speech and perspectives to become more inclusive, yielding, and impartial… 🌕👯‍♂️✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/geminifullmoon-2018

P.S. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Love and gratitude for this painful year of opening to our collective shadows so we can make room for a brighter, more aligned new paradigm ❤️

🌑 SCORPIO NEW MOON 🌑
etherealculture.com/scorpionewmoon-2018

The Scorpio New Moon arrives on Wednesday, at 8:01am Pacific Time, sparking deep transformation and rebirth. It’s a good time to turn inward, to meditate and reset, as we begin whole new cycles in many facets of our lives.
.
This lunation occurs in the midst of several major planetary transits, emphasizing our feelings of newness—as well the uncertainty that accompanies them. We’re closing out a year of Jupiter in Scorpio, which has extracted our shadows, specifically relating to power, abuse, and sexuality. We’re now preparing to feel much more expansive and outward facing as Jupiter moves into Sagittarius on Thursday. Our energy and optimism are ready to return, full-speed.
.
But first, on this Scorpio New Moon, we can pause to feel the places in ourselves and the world where we’ve been painfully healing. We can nurture and nourish ourselves, loving the places where we still feel hurt, raw, or unsure… 🕸🌑✨Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/scorpionewmoon-2018

🍁 ASTROLOGY OF NOVEMBER 🍁
etherealculture.com/november2018

We begin November from deep inside Scorpio’s underworld. Like falling leaves, veils have been dropping, revealing repressed feelings and hidden truths. At this point, plunging the depths is so familiar—even exhausting. Jupiter has been visiting Scorpio since October 2017, exposing our collective underbelly—particularly relating to abuse, sexuality, and power. But this month, so much is ready to shift.
.
Jupiter finally changes signs on November 8, moving out of Scorpio’s shadows, into bright, optimistic, and truth-seeking Sagittarius. The Nodes are also changing, moving along the Cancer-Capricorn axis, adjusting our paths forward. We’re officially beginning an era of the empowered feminine, while we continue to clear karma around patriarchy, intolerance, and other massive systemic problems.
.
Venus also stations direct mid-month, ushering us forward in the realms of love, relationships, money, and values. After a difficult journey in retrograde, we can now feel the blessings of greater resilience, balance, openness, and restored hearts. All the while, we can remember the main theme for the month is expansion. We’re finding the courage to open to greater and greater truths, broadening our minds, and celebrating our deepest wisdom—with increased humor, joy, and hope 🍁✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/november2018

🐂⚡️TAURUS FULL MOON⚡️🐂
etherealculture.com/taurusfullmoon-2018

The Taurus Full Moon arrives today at 12:45pm Eastern Time, in close conjunction with Uranus—planet of shock and revolution. While the energies of this Hunters’s Moon are unsettling, they’re here to challenge us in supportive ways. New patterns are emerging from our deepest subconscious. We’re breaking out of old ruts, releasing stale energies and situations that still hold us back.
.
This Full Moon isn’t supposed to be comfortable. Uranus is zapping us with lightning bolts while opposing Venus and the Sun— disrupting the status quo. With Venus involved, we’re revolutionizing our attitudes toward relationships, values, gender, and money in particular.
.
Meanwhile, the Moon and Uranus are helping us embrace our authenticity—celebrating who we are without shame or apology. Freedom is now possible, and it begins with loving ourselves more fully so we can better extend our hearts to others… 🐂⚡️🌕✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/taurusfullmoon-2018

✨⚖️ LIBRA NEW MOON ⚖️✨
etherealculture.com/libranewmoon-2018

The Libra New Moon arrives today, at 8:46pm Pacific Time, offering a peak of passionate intensity. Building on previous transits, this Moon marks a fresh start around love, peace, relationships, and harmony. Libra’s ruler, Venus, has just begun to retrograde, and we’re officially entering new cycles around how we relate to one another—and how we establish healthier intimacy and connections.
.
With the New Moon squaring Pluto, we’re experiencing deep alchemical shifts. We’re liberating from oppression, even within ourselves. We’re now making room for the feminine to step into greater influence. She’s claiming the power of Pluto, using it to transmute abusive dynamics and patriarchal conditioning.
.
As Venus retrogrades through Scorpio, the power of love is ready to overtake us. We have the strength to face our darkness, holding it in unconditional love and forgiveness. Our hearts can beam with compassion as we stand up against toxicity, eliminating all that we’ve outworn—harmful relationships, patterns, and structures. Our swords—our clarity and precision—are extensions of our basic goodness. The point isn’t to punish anyone or cause harm, but to slice through neurosis, abuse, and unnecessary pain. As we do this, we can hold our anger and love at once—in beautiful Libran paradox. Even rage is wisdom—worthy of being met with curiosity and open heart. The key now is to trust ourselves, relaxing into our unfoldment. We’re rapidly shifting into higher frequencies of who we are... ⚖️✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/libranewmoon-2018

✨⚖️ VENUS RETROGRADE ⚖️✨
etherealculture.com/venusretrograde-2018

Venus stations retrograde today until November 15. Her journey begins in deep, alchemical Scorpio, then she returns to spacious, harmonious Libra—her natural domicile.
.
Now, we enter a period of retreat and going inward. We can contemplate old patterns around love and relating, meeting any walls or fears that still obstruct our hearts. Where does our fear close down our potential for deep connection? Where do we still hold resentments? And what unresolved places still exist in our hearts around past relationships or friendships?
.
Libra rules paradox, and we are now confronting our darkest places and holding space for them—with forgiveness and acceptance. We can find balance as we transform our places of suffering into beauty and true intimacy. Taboos, secret desires, and shadows now have the chance to see the light of day, with neutrality and embrace.
.
Perhaps true intimacy is sharing with another person what we’re afraid to say. We have that opportunity now—first with ourselves. We can listen to our own hearts, then extend our ears more openly to others, receiving all of who they are without assumption. Veils are slipping away as we grow into the power of our inner feminine—standing strong and still in the truth of our beings—with grace, resilience, and unconditional love. ⚖️✨ Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/venusretrograde-2018

🌾 ASTROLOGY OF OCTOBER 🌾
etherealculture.com/october2018
.
We begin October with Libra in command, the Scales who forever strive for harmony and balance. Venus rules Libra—goddess of love, beauty, and the feminine. She’s extra potent this month as she prepares to retrograde for the first time in two years.
.
We’re now entering a period of deep recalibration around love, relationships, and sexuality. We’re plunging into our depths—transforming how we approach romance, femininity, and our sense of self-worth. There’s a quality of choicelessness as we transmute and release discordance in these domains, both in our personal lives and the collective.
.
It’s now time to step into the power of our inner feminine, destroying any blockages to healthy love, peace, and harmony. We can forgive ourselves, acknowledging and releasing deep traumas. We can embrace the full spectrum of who we are, embodying our true worthiness, acceptance, and grace 🌾✨Read more in my article: etherealculture.com/october2018
