    We are still in a very transformative period of time. Much is being brought to the surface for release. You have an opportunity to transcend old karmic patterns and habits that have created conflict for you both personally and collectively on a global level. A revolution on the physical plane is taking place. Evolving consciousness for all of humanity is at the heart of this upheaval. Can we set aside our differences and work for the common good?

    Ebullient oils that open your heart and help you express your creativity.

    • Aquarius New Moon
      Thursday, February 11, 11:06am PT (vc)

    Void of Course (vc) means the Moon is not making any exact aspects to other celestial bodies today. You may have actually felt the Moon’s influence more intensely yesterday when she made numerous contacts with key celestial bodies, including Conjunct Saturn, Venus, Mercury, Jupiter and Square to Uranus. Mercury was also Square Mars.

    Venus Conjunct Jupiter

    Much change is in the air as new structures come into form. There is an expansion of heart energy today. It’s a time when newfound hope and promise can be born.

    • Virgo Full Moon
      Saturday, February 27, 12:17am PT

    Moon Opposes Neptune

    Illumination and revelation of spiritual ideals is possible. We’ve been rapidly elevating our individual and global consciousness. Now we have the potential to move past what has separated and divided us. It is a time when life is valued for its own sake. We can awaken to a valuing of existence. In other words just because something exists it has inherent value. We are moving into a new era when life is valued on its own. There is no need to prove your worth, or have elevations of status in society to feel worthy. We are moving from valuing a projected self image to understanding we are valuable just by the fact of being alive. Self worth and being lovable has been such a HUGE issue for us humans. Such a heavy burden now begins to lose its hold of the human psyche. How long will it take? The good news is the more people who move to this new paradigm the more elevated our global consciousness and quicker this transition will happen. In other words expanded consciousness, begets more expanded consciousness.

    Essential Oil to Use: Ylang Ylang III
    As the Neptune Opposition to the Virgo Moon can have a very draining effect you’ll want to use oils that keep you grounded, yet open to inspiration from Neptune’s influence.

    What is a Supermoon?

    A Supermoon is referred to as a perigee full Moon by astronomers. When the Moon is at perigee it is at its closest point to Earth in its monthly orbit. When that closest point in time coincides within the Moon’s full phase we call it a Supermoon. 

    What causes a Supermoon? 

    The Moon has a near-point (perigee) and a far-point (apogee). At perigee the Moon appears a little larger (a Supermoon) than usual, while at apogee, the Moon appears a little smaller than usual. A Supermoon may appear bigger and brighter in the sky.

    Why are Supermoon’s important?

    The Moon’s electromagnetic pull on the poles of the earth and the human body varies as the Moon cycles in its elliptical orbit around the Earth. During a Supermoon this electromagnetic influence is more pronounced. This results in higher tides of the ocean, as well as an intensification of emotions coming up for release.
