Indigenous Americans called this the Full Pink Moon because it coincided with the blossoming of wild pink phlox. Though it will not literally appear pink in the sky, this is still a special Moon. Take a few minutes to slow down and stand under Luna’s radiance. Reflect on what’s transpired lately and bless it all. Salute all your relations – from family, friends and special animals to pushy telemarketers and clueless politicians. The Libra Full Moon reminds us that beneath the surface, we are all one.

It’s time to clean up our inner and outer pollution. In the Northern Hemisphere, spring is almost here – do a thorough cleanse of your body and home. Allow yourself to weep, rage and release emotions that have been stuck within you, perhaps for years. Refuse that straw with your drink, use your own bags at the store, kick the bottled water habit, and don’t buy toxic cleaners or face scrubs with plastic micro-beads in them. Make your voice heard: Tell your representatives how you feel about water pollution. Together, we can make a difference!
At Friday’s Full Moon eclipse in Leo (Feb. 10, 4:33 p.m. PST), we’re all encouraged to dress up a little and let our true selves shine. The Full Moon syncs up magically with stable Saturn, optimistic Jupiter and innovative Uranus, sparking unexpected solutions to problems. The Sun in Aquarius eclipsing the Moon in Leo reminds us that we’re all in this together. Progressive change and caring about the rights of others trump egocentric concerns. It’s possible now to see the light on the horizon.
Wise advice at any time, but especially for Thursday’s Cancer Full Moon (Jan. 12, 3:34 a.m. PST). This Full Moon forges a dynamic cardinal grand cross with take-no-prisoners Pluto, I’ll-do-it-my-way Uranus, and let’s-learn-from-this Jupiter – all catalyzing the sensitive Cancer Moon and stoic Capricorn Sun. There is the potential for life-changing awakenings and developments, but also for impulsive, upsetting acts.Rather than succumbing to fear, stay as patient and calm as possible regardless of what others may say or do. Try to harness the power of this fertile action period, which falls on the heels of mover-and-shaker Mercury’s direct turn, to achieve your goals.
A meteor shower at the Full Moon is significant metaphorically and energetically – and even more so when you factor in Mercury’s powerful stationary stance as it prepares to turn retrograde on the 18th-19th. The Gemini Full Moon, which has been building all week, coincides with illuminating messages arriving or ideas bursting out of left field to change our thinking. With Gemini’s ruler Mercury turning backward, these messages have a connection to the past.
When Donald Trump’s salacious remarks in a 2005 interview recently hit the airwaves, our culture got a wake-up call. Sensitive folks recoiled in disgust as the presidential hopeful gleefully confided that his wealth and power give him the ability to do anything he wants to women, including “grab them by the pu**y.” One of […]
And we’re about to experience the Mother of all Pisces Moons – a Pisces Full Moon eclipse (Friday Sept. 16, 12:05 p.m. PDT). This eclipse makes quite a splash because it squares action-hero Mars and wounded healer Chiron. Old wounds will be triggered for healing – especially regarding male domination of women. When the Moon (feminine) is eclipsed by the Sun (masculine), honoring your feelings and facing the truth become essential.
“I’m not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps,” declared 19-year-old Simone Biles last week, shortly after winning gold in the women’s all-around finals. “I’m the first Simone Biles.” The record-breaking gymnast wasn’t bragging; she was merely stating the obvious – and thereby countering all the sexist commentary that’s been rattling around the Olympics. After […]
The approaching Full Moon in yang Capricorn opposes the Sun in yin Cancer (Tues. July 19, 3:57 p.m. PDT). Tensions build as we attempt to balance our inner and outer lives. Toughing it out will not help. Have a good cry or share your feelings instead. But if all else fails, be like Cristina and Meredith and just dance it out!
