Moon Phases: Waning Gibbous in Pisces

autumn moments (1)

Greetings beloveds,

Today the moon is 94% illuminated in the sign of Pisces. While the moon is in Pisces we find ourselves in a dreamy state. Aquarius asked us to think outside the box and begin to mentally construct our life’s design. Now we pull the soul into the conversation which holds our spiritual knowledge that exists outside of time. Pisces feels it’s way to a solution. This energy today will not allow anything that does not align with what is in your heart to remain in your presence. If you find yourself emotionally reacting to others, crying over puppy or cat videos, expressing anger, frustration, happiness, or unbridled joy-that is the moon in Pisces showing you the areas in your life that are either in need of healing or are healed. Pay attention to everything that elicits an intense reaction from you. Those are the parts of your life that need to be examined through therapy, mindfulness, or other modalities.

If you find yourself not having noticeable emotional responses to experiences today that’s perfectly normal. Perhaps the Pisces moon is drawing you inward to focus on your dreams. Take a swim with the Pisces fishes without any limitations. Sometimes when our lives feel too painful we attempt to not feel by numbing our emotions with things like food, drama, sex, tv, books, sports, cars, or whatever takes our mind off of what we do not want to feel. Being creative allows for us to explore our desires. So take a nap, a walk, talk with a friend that you are on good terms with, journal, or just sit for a moment. This is the perfect time to reconnect with your deepest desires that you might have disconnected from. Today you can experience internally what following your heart could bring you.  When you come upon a choice or an interest see if it makes your heart smile or feel a bit down. If your heart feels warm and light follow that path. Tomorrow the moon will move into Aries and you can begin to birth your dream into reality.


Moon Phases: Full Moon in Aquarius

autumn moments (1)Greetings beloveds,

Today the Moon is Full in Aquarius. We started this journey roughly 29 days ago. Through taking this time to connect with the moon I’ve learned so much about myself, the Moon, and the astrological signs. It has truly been an eye-opening experience. The Full Moon is the time when we are fully engaged in world around us. We have completely left the void of the New Moon experienced birth, youth, and young adulthood. We are now grown, independent, and ready to make our mark on the world. The Full Moon calls for us to look at what did we come here for and are we moving towards it? If not why? What did we attach ourselves too during the Waxing Phase that is not serving us? What do we want to carry forth with us into the dark to become a part of our core being? The Full Moon says, look around you and see your life clearly for what it is. Nothing is hidden if you dare to turn your gaze upon it. Let the light shine upon your face giving you strength. Open your eyes. What do you see?

I will be spending this Full Moon with my Co-Priestesses partaking in a water ritual. We will review, revise, and clarify our 6 month goals as needed. With the Full Moon in Aquarius this is a perfect time to focus on the future. May you have a blessed and happy Full Moon loves.


Full Moon in Aquarius: The Power to Turn Thoughts into Reality

Full Moon Readings New

Greetings beloveds,

Welcome to August! The Full Moon is in Aquarius and we are feeling the call to be innovative, unique and forward thinking. Later today you’ll find the breakdown for a Full Moon in Aquarius which completes our moon cycles workshop. Soon we will have this workshop up and available to you so you can personalize your relationship with the Moon.

The Full Moon in Aquarius highlights our drive towards creating a new world for ourselves and each other. It calls our attention towards where we personally find the power and drive to bring these new ways of being into the real world. You may find yourself deep within your thoughts building systems, projects, and theories which you know will transform our reality. If you find yourself feeling limited because of practical barriers such as financial or social support, use this time to ground your dreams with the material world though your solar plexus third chakra. Here’s a fantastic third chakra meditation to listen to while wearing your favorite yellow outfit and fueling yourself with foods that are kind to your tummy.

Let us speak on social support and feeling connected. It is an easy thing to say, “we are all connected and you are never alone,”. It is not so easy to make someone feel that way. When we are in times ruled by the air signs we find ourselves deep in our thoughts looking at patterns and systems. This does not always lend itself to feeling connected to others or Spirit if we do not connect our thoughts with our feelings. While being detached to say a particular outcome or material thing can provide a feeling of freedom, feeling detached from your higher-self, God, Spirit, and living physical beings can create a sense of isolation. Practicing the above meditation will help but so will meeting for quick chats, phone calls, or attending events with those who you can connect with. Finding your support system is not always easy but it will happen. There are others who will support you it just might not look like what you have envisioned in your mind.

Aquarius Full Moon Quote.png

That is the lesson of the Full Moon in Aquarius. What we create in our mind is just that a thought, a hope, a dream. A lot happens between turning that thought into a reality. Hold on to the essence of your dream. Detach from the specifics that limit you, which only you will know. Create the foundation and let the world fill in the rest for you. Have hope, remember Aquarius is represented by The Star (17-which also represents the number for this year) card in tarot. When you connect to your solar plexus, find your powerhouse of hope. Hold on to it. Nurture your hope until it becomes real. Then dream again.


Moon Phases: Moving from Capricorn to Aquarius

autumn moments (1)Greeting beloveds,

Today the Moon is moving from Capricorn to Aquarius in its’ final stages waxing gibbous phase before it becomes a Full Moon. Do you feel it? The energy is becoming lighter as we move from Capricorn to Aquarius. We are becoming less concerned with showing our strength through our hardships instead expressing our strength through our capacity to create a vision of the future. You’ve done the hard work.  Do you look around now and wallow in thoughts of what could have been or do you look up letting the wind gently brush your face carrying your thoughts forward into what can be? Today’s a great day to take stock of what energy you want to have as we move into the Full Moon. Do you want to be the clingy insecure Capricorn or the surefooted creator Capricorn? Make your choice and then see where the Aquarian energy tomorrow takes you.


Moon Phases: The Moon in Capricorn-Crystals

autumn moments (1)

Greetings beloved,

The Moon has moved into Capricorn during the waxing gibbous phase. This is the energy of the builder. Capricorns take abstract universal knowledge and transform it into practical systems and societies. They create the Earth as we know it so that we can survive. This is not an easy energy to carry which can make this time feel heavy if you are finding yourself with too many projects or tasks to accomplish. It is wise to remember that while there are some responsibilities that must be attended to there are some tasks that we choose to take on that can be shifted to another person or time. Your worth is not determined by what you accomplish. You are worthy because you exist. Capricorn calls for us to look completing projects while also leaving room for celebration even if for a moment. Remember it is during Capricorn season that many of the Holy Days for various religions occur. That is why Capricorns work as hard as they do. Yes, partly for themselves but also for those that they care about. So that they are able to see what they have contributed to the world and have it be appreciated for the effort that it took to manifest these outcomes. Today ask yourself what motivates you? Why do you do what you do? Be easy on yourself, excellence takes time.

You might also be feeling a bit more frisky during this time as Capricorns are a sensual sign. Although they are very serious when needed they take their connection to all PHYSICAL aspects of life. Feel free to explore these urges if you wish using safe practices. If anything Capricorns can teach us to be mindful of what we do and how it can affect us long term. Perform any form self-care that you can for yourself today no matter how small of an act. Taking care of yourself will not only improve your attitude but lower stress levels allowing for you to accomplish even more of the tasks that you have set for yourself. Realistic self-care practices include things such as having a cup of your favorite drink, taking a quick nap, completing a 5 minute breath exercise or even taking a moment to connect with your favorite crystal. If you are looking for some assistance connecting to the physical energy of the Moon in order to manifest here on Earth, here are some crystals that might be able to help.

Key Crystals and Metal Associated with the Moon:

Moonstone, Selenite (Peach), Oligocrase, Opal, Silver, Crystals that are Blue, White, Opaque, and Grey.

With love,


Moon Phases: Waxing Gibbous Moon in Capricorn

autumn moments (1)Greetings beloveds,

Today the Moon is fully in Capricorn and waxing gibbous. During this time you may find yourself building up to the manifestation energy of the Full Moon. The energy of this time is of outward movement and action. Think of it as the night before a major presentation and you find yourself feeling anticipation tinged with a little fear, that’s where we are right now. You might be the person who is OVER prepared and has your entire presentation memorized. Or perhaps you are just starting your presentation at 9 PM. Either way we know that things are coming to a head. Want to know what you will find during the Full Moon? Take a look at your July New Moon reading, dreams, or intentions but also take a look at what all was occurring at January’s New Moon in Aquarius energy as this the counterpoint for the Full Moon in Aquarius we will be encountering on Monday. In general, this is a time that emphasizes connections and social interactions. This is centered on family and those who you feel most secure with as the Moon is in Capricorn who is all about material security (which can manifest in connecting with those who can bring them material success). Couple this with Leo season and you have the perfect recipe for networking and social climbing. Send out that email, text, make that video, write that blog, or do whatever makes you feel seen and a part of the world around you. This might just be a trip to Target! This is your time, use it.


Moon Cycles: Moon in Sagittarius

autumn moments (1) Greetings beloveds,

Today the moon is waxing gibbous in Sagittarius. The Moon in Sagittarius compels us to align with Truth (yes with a capitol T). This search for Truth can lead you into many adventures as it is not something that you will find in any textbook, back of a cereal box or in a song. It’s something that can only be found by your expanding your field of knowledge and understanding to reflect the internal compass of truth that resides within us all. In an ever-changing world, your adventures will last many lifetimes, therefore go out today and learn something new. Go to a new restaurant, take a different way home, sign up for a class or turn in your resume for that job you’ve always dreamed of. The Moon in Sagittarius calls for you to use your principals to discern when you encounter these new insights whether they are a part of your personal or universal truth. Be bold like the Centaur. Find your balance and stand firm like the archer so that your arrows will fly true. It is then that you will feel the freedom that comes from alignment with self.

Lastly, Sagittarius rules over the thighs so spend time stretching, massaging, and giving those strong muscles so love. They carry you through each day and every new adventure supporting your every move. Return the favor. I plan on taking a long bath this evening with my favorite Epsom salts and my moon oil/herb blend.


Reflections: Completion and Planning

Move Like Water

Greetings beloveds,

July flew by and now we are in August. I cannot believe that half of this year is gone and that we are moving into the darker part of the year. Do you already feel the call of Fall? I have to say, as an October baby, I am biased in believing that Autumn is the best season of them all. The pumpkins, the cider, the hot chocolate, cool temps, watching the leaves change. It’s just everything. But we aren’t quite there yet. In fact we are deep in the heart of Summer and eclipse season.

This Summer is really calling for us to get clear on who we are, what we want to do, and where we want to be in the world. July saw me working through some huge projects and really ironing out the details on things I would like to manifest in the Fall and Winter. I am still finishing up these projects but the larger part of developing the ideas is finished. I am overall going with the flow though as the spirit of water which rules summer suggests. Here at the Bliss Institute we will be moving deeper into the ways of water in our space, our actions, and our beliefs. We’ll also be finishing up our review of the Moon and it’s many elements. This month will be a time of completion and long term planning.

Here’s to August and finishing our plans.
