Sunday, February 14th 

Happy V Day, Happy Singles Day, Happy Valentine’s Day

Mercury leaves shadow phase (1 degree of Aquarius)

We’ve got a bevy of beauties to gaze at if you can get up early enough. Just before day break, Mercury, Venus, Saturn, Mars and Jupiter are visible. This stellar line up opens the days for us until mid-February, heralding in the light that will guide us.

The week opens up with a new moon in Aquarius on Monday, February 8th at 6:39 AM.  It’s the first new moon of 2016 with no Mercury retrograde to impede our movements. Besides a significant square from Mars, one that stays hot on the heels of the sun for a few days, the new moon is sitting in a situation that grants it a sextile from Saturn on one side and from Uranus on the other. This is an innovative opening to the lunar cycle if we can face the demands and the daunting tasks that a square from Mars in Scorpio often offers up (namely, dealing with a little conflict and the inner commotion it causes us). Mars tests our courage and our ability to curb our hostility. Battling our inner demons makes the outer ones far less formidable.

The day after the new moon Venus in Capricorn lines up to gain gifts and good graces from Jupiter in Virgo. These are earthly offerings which means that the inspiration and help is only as good as we can put it to use. Since so much intense astrology occurred in Capricorn over the past month, this little love note feels like a well-earned make up session. Both Venus and Jupiter bring acceptance, inclusivity and add an easy-going flavor to whatever they touch. This week may help to bring us together, to listen to one another and to heal some of the lingering and unhealed hurts.

Mercury enters the clarity seeking sign of Aquarius on Saturday. Ideas can come into forms that feel workable. By February 14th Mercury will once again be free to move forward as it will no longer be retracing its former retrograde degrees. This is good news for all the new moon plans we are working on.

Mars in Scorpio will sextile Jupiter in Virgo over the weekend. With Jupiter helping out both Venus and Mars (the cosmic lovers) this week, one might say that love is in the air. Or at least love is given a chance.

The skies stay almost placid for the rest of the month helping us to make the most of this moment. The next new moon, a month from now, is an all-kinds-of hot-mess eclipse. Enjoy the simplicity while it lasts.

New Moon Horoscopes

AriesAries & Aries Rising

This week brings you a big, potentially profitable, lift to your work. This week brings a relationship, a helping hand or some assistance that you’ve needed but not been able to ask for. This week smooths over the commotion, the upheaval or the rough and tumble that you have experienced in your career or work life.

Be ready for the boost in whatever ways you can.

Monday’s new moon stimulates, initiates and helps to innovate friendships, group projects and social situations. Try to remember that we don’t know the kind of potential that gets ignited when we come together with kindred souls. Try to remember that offering the best of what we’ve got with the folks we’ve got by our sides is an honor. Try to put yourself in situations where the ones that you are with are lifting your consciousness, raising the intellectual bar and inspiring you to remember the root reason why we are all here, which is to love and support one another.

It’s a new moon to call your coven to the fire, to light each other’s way, to hold one another’s intention and to keep each other moving in the direction of your hearts. Create space for the ones that will help you get to where you are aiming to go and those who want you to let your self be known.

Taurus copyTaurus & Taurus Rising

Before we can know what it is we are meant to do, before we declare to the world our path, our purpose and our mission, we have to first be willing to take a good hard look at what will undoubtedly come with it.

The craft has to be enough. The pursuit has to propel us out bed in the morning. Our relationship to what we are passionate about has to be the nourishment that keeps us going.

We cannot hang our self-esteem on future success. Success is never promised us. Dreams don’t work that way. Besides, we often think success is something that needs to occur within our timeline, within our lifetime. But so often our lives are used for something far beyond our lifespan. Can you give yourself, your work, and your life to a long arc aimed toward justice?

Monday’s new moon opens up your 10th house of career and lifelong goals. The 10th house is the gift that we are lucky to be able to give to the world. The 10th house is the monument that we make, the offering we present and the sacrifice we are happy to lay upon the altar of our lives. It is what we do whether we get paid or not. It is what we do whether we get recognized for it or not. It is what we do whether we get what we want from it or not. It is what we do because it is what we are.

This new moon looks you squarely in the eyes and asks you, what are you? Your response is in the way you chose to live, to love and to pursue your passion.

Gemini copyGemini & Gemini Rising

We are in a constant state of change. A constant state of reinvention. A constant state of catastrophe and birth. We are caterpillars that climb into our chrysalis each night, in need of a dark cocoon of creation. We are butterflies that hatch every morning in need of wide open skies to stretch our wings.

Each day is a mini pilgrimage to embark on. Each hour a study in self-development. Each moment a choice to learn or to lock our minds away in rigidity and self-importance.

Monday’s new moon makes for a perfect soul searching session. Monday’s new moon asks you what you’d most like to learn about in the next 6-12 months. Monday’s new moon sets you off on a quest to discover yourself anew.

Set your days up like a treasure hunt. If you feel blue search for neon yellow. If you feel lost, stand in the place that you are and steady yourself there. If you feel buried under your burdens, look up and search for things that can inspire you to soar. If you feel untethered, search for a good piece of earth to dig down into. If you feel solid, be the rock that others seek. Teach what you most need to learn. Learn what you most need to teach. Walk your talk and talk about the road you’ve walked.

The loud and impossible to ignore call that you received recently was trying to help you to experience a greater vulnerability in your relationships.

Did you pick up the phone. Did you receive the message? Did you roll it up and put it in your hat for the long haul?

I hope these past few months taught you much in the way of how to show up. For yourself. For the love that wants to work with you. For the growth that can come when we make ourselves available for the rough and tumble lessons of love’s tussles.

Monday’s new moon awakens your 8th house of shared resources, shared energy and all the psychological landmines that can be set off when we decide to join forces with another. You might consider what projects you are beginning or that you want to begin in partnership with others. You might consider what you have learned over the past weeks about the nature of confronting your fears in partnership. You might consider the wisdom that you gained when the thing you feared the most happened and the sky didn’t fall. You are still standing and you are still in the game.

Vulnerability isn’t cheap, but it is lavishly generous. The wealth it brings pays out to future generations a million fold. This week, be the bringer of sturdy vulnerability in all your relationships.

Leo copyLeo & Leo Rising

Relationships are a portal. They are a vortex. They are transformational ground. To step into one leaves us forever changed. We have no control over what another person will do, say or decide. We are vulnerable in the face of their love, rejection, acceptance and misunderstanding. We are stripped of defenses once we tap into our care, our longings and our love for another.

The reality is that we are breathtakingly dependent on one another while being mostly blind to the interconnection of all life. We have these busy little minds that make us believe that somehow we are not the same as everyone else around us. Our lives depend on a million connections to other living beings each day and yet we walk around with a mind that natters on incessantly about our separation.

Connection is at the core of life. It moves us. Shapes us. Drives us. It’s why we are here and yet it can be a source of great pain and misgivings.

Monday’s new moon breaks the seal on your 7th house of relationships. It’s the perfect time to examine your heart scars, your reasons for feeling not good enough and your beliefs about not being worthy of love and appreciation. It’s the perfect time to examine the fears you have, the good reasons you have and apprehensions that you have about getting into a committed partnership, staying in a committed partnership or working through the hard parts of your most important and most intimate partnerships.

This is the new moon to set yourself up for a year of honest, innovative and inspiring relationships, but you’ll have to dig down and do the work required to make sure you aren’t setting up dynamics from your past that do you no favors or feed you no love.

Virgo copyVirgo & Virgo Rising

There is nothing like the clarity that can come after a state of emergency has past. The weeks of January lead you through winding roadshows of past loves, past pains and past fears of your capacity to attract the life and love that you want. This week helps to bring some healing to those areas. Some luck to your love life. Some inspiration to your workshop.

Show these moments, these people, these creations that you care for them. Let yourself be known through honestly expressing yourself. Refuse to let yourself be caught in concepts that sterilize the mind. Love is messy. Love is mind-altering. Love is liberating.

Liberation leaves us free to find ourselves and responsible for the role that freedom hands us. We can squander the gifts of liberation on self-centered creations. We can lose ourselves in the needs of others. We can find a balance in all we do by remembering our inner journey every time we take a step forward.

Monday’s new moon breaks open your 6th house of work, daily duties and serving in the ways you must. Initiate the changes in your daily habits that will help you serve your Maker and make the most of auspicious events that occur throughout your days and weeks. Start your exercise plans, your work projects and any other commitments that help you to enjoy what’s already present by being so yourself.

Libra copyLibra & Libra Rising

Each one of us is nothing short of a master artist of our own lives. Yet many of us feel that we are not creative, that we have no right to consider ourselves so. We put creativity in museums. We hang creativity on a wall. We consume creativity. We critique creativity. We put creativity on a stage, on a pedestal, on another level. Rarely do we reclaim, reorient and reorganize our way of thinking about what we do each and everyday.

We never stop creating. Never.

We are born of a creative force that we can never divorce ourselves from. Stop trying to. You are creating your life right now. This new moon wants you to take that a step further and asks you what you want to playfully, lovingly and joyously create. This new moon is asking you how you can take your creative efforts seriously. How you can support them. How you can innovate your life with them. How you can heal from the lies that enclose them.

Who laughed at your artistic efforts? Who shamed you into shutting down your natural self-expression? Who laid their own discomfort, their own fear, their own unhealed trauma on you that lead you to believe not to try again?

This new moon gathers up every ounce of compassion, every ounce of understanding and every ounce of courage that you can corral. Surround yourself with it. Heal the ghost of your past with it. Let this compassion for yourself be your foundation, your ground of being, and the place that you rise up from.

It will never fail you. It will always keep you and bring you home to yourself.

Scorpio copyScorpio & Scorpio Rising

Look for the support. It’s there. Listen for the conversations. Notice those that are wanting to conspire, connect and even offer a sincere critique that can help you. Assistance sometimes comes wrapped in what we find, at first, off-putting. Don’t be too big for your britches or your b*tches.

You’ve always got an air of intensity but right now you’ve got all kinds of outrageous energy coming at you and coming from you. Handle it. Do what you need to do to take care of yourself. Sleep, eat, therapy, exercise and channel the bouts of ferocious fantastic that are coming through you.

Monday’s new moon sets off your 4th house of down and dirty roots that won’t let you wander too far off. There may be something around your past that you need to make peace with. There might be some kind of threshold your kin couldn’t cross but that you need to. There might be some healing that can happen when you turn to issues about your home, your family and your current foundation with a willingness to consider what is best for all involved in the long haul. What do you need in order to make your base a place that you want to come home to? What part of your home life do you need to innovate in order to feel comfortable, considered and considerate? What needs to be reset, renovated or rearranged in order to feel like you’ve got room to circulate in your inner space?

Sagittarius-2 copySagittarius & Sagittarius Rising 

Do not underestimate what you’ve been working on just because it’s being done behind the scenes. Never let attention from the outside world be the determining factor of whether or not your brilliance is. It is. Never doubt what you do if that thing that you do springs forth from the center of your soul. Never doubt the dance you do to your anthem song. It’s your rhythm to relate to. There is a thing that each of us does that only we can do, and to deny it is to deny ourselves our life. Give yourself this gift.

This week it’s more than likely that there will be help that comes to you from sources you either had no idea about or ones that recognize your internal grit and gifts.

Monday’s new moon opens your 3rd house of communications, daily travel and dealing with the aspects of the everyday. Celebrate this new moon by reaching out to those that might be interested in the things that you are developing. Send out your e-mails, your notes, your letters and your hellos and how you doings. There is much support brewing in the skies for these sentiments over the next few weeks. Since this new moon will travel to your 10th house of career and reputation when it is full (February 22nd), it means that the efforts you put in now end up effecting what you are trying to get done out in the world. The more you love the thing that you are creating, the more that thing will shine as it is revealed for all to see. No effort will go unnoticed.

Capricorn copyCapricorn & Capricorn Rising

After weeks of boiling away the extraneous, the superfluous and especially the superficial, this week brings you a well-deserved helping of what might feel like happy. Not a universally applicable term however, happy is a unique state of being for each of us. Happy has unique qualities for each of us. It thrives in unique conditions for each of us.

But whatever the conditions, and whatever their effect, this happiness, this ease and this sheer quality of abundance in your life and your interactions will be evident. Spread it around. Give forth of what you’ve got. So much has most likely shifted about the way you view the world and your place in it. With the ability to give way and give away what no longer needs us we gain the room we need to explore what life might have in store.

This is no time to be rigid.

Monday’s new moon opens up your 2nd house of income and well-earned self worth. If there are financial goals that you have for the year, this would be your new moon to make moves to meet them. If there are business adventures that you are wanting to explore, this would be the new moon to initiate them. If there is any way that you can innovate your relationship to your talents, your assets and your way of working with them, this new moon wants you to push through so that you can prosper.

Aquarius copyAquarius & Aquarius Rising

No matter what date your birthday falls on, Monday’s new moon can be counted as a secondary one (yes, you too Aquarius Risings). With the new moon in your sign/1st house of self, identity, body and being, this new moon is hitting your refresh button for the year.

Mark it intentionally.

What are you growing yourself into becoming this year? What are you growing yourself out of? What small spaces do you reside in because you told yourself that it’s fine to exist like this? What is the cost of letting yourself outgrow those tight fits and do you have that kind of currency? No growth comes for free. You can’t burst out of your shell and keep it in tact at the same time.

Some things have to go.

Things like worrying about fitting into situations that never felt good anyway. Things like fitting into roles that you never chose. Things like fitting in period.

Especially in your public role. Your career is a hotspot for learning how to define yourself. The challenges that present themselves, as you try and carve out a space for yourself in the world, are sacred challenges. They are supposed to be there. Your job is to keep finding the inspiration to match them, meet them and be with them in ways that feel productive.

Pisces copyPisces & Pisces Rising

On one level this week brings you much mutual beauty, friendly support and relationships that you can build long-term with. By learning to accept support from others your world opens up in ways that astound the heart and still the fears, insecurities and hopelessness. Even the smallest moment of solidarity can impact us for a lifetime.

Simultaneously, the preparation that you are undertaking for your new year is undoubtedly important. Monday’s new moon is happening in areas of your life that no one can see. Monday’s new moon lays seeds in the back rooms of your psyche. Monday’s new moon invites you to meditate on what you can outgrow in order to live your next year with less baggage and more room for your own flow.

The next new moon is in your sign. The next new moon is a solar eclipse. The next new moon should be met with an unwavering belief in your core principles and your ability to do what needs doing. The next new moon will launch you forward in ways you can’t yet imagine. Clear the path with this lunation. Prepare with your prayers. Affirm with your affirmations. Make way with your movements. Dance yourself clean of what you no longer need and offer it up to the gods of change. They are hungry for what no longer nourishes you.
