The New Moon in late Aries, taking place early on Wednesday morning, is a special one. It is accompanied by a triple conjunction of Mars, Venus and the new planet, Eris, making a total of six planets in Aries counting Sun and Moon, since Uranus also resides at the 10th degree of Aries in forming square with Pluto. The new dwarf planet, Eris, is a feminine warrior energy, and so is quite a fitting accompaniment for Mars and Venus in conjunction only a few degrees away. We therefore have a distinct focus on relationship now, and a coming together of masculine and feminine elements in pursuit of better connections, both romantic and non-romantic, between us all. Justly is it said that we need each other in order that we begin, as a culture, to truly shine.
With a focus on relationship at the center of this New Moon, the entire lunar cycle that begins with this configuration is colored by it, so that the remainder of April and into May could be termed a “relationship month.” We might want to ask ourselves where we could do more to connect over to the other side of our own particular gender; where as masculine players we might try to adopt a softer approach, and where, as softer more feminine beings of either physical gender, we might — in connection with the masculine — employ more assertive techniques and state our actual needs. In this way we could find ourselves better able to connect with friends, and with partners, and with perhaps neglected parts of ourselves.
Oracle Report Balsamic Moon Phase – Moon in Pisces/Aries
The energy of the impending New Moon strikes hard today, two days before the New Moon begins. To handle this we need to give everything that we have to maintaining groundedness.
We want to stay very close to the earth and close to ourselves while continuously holding sobriety to what is happening. We know that a massive change is underway so we “hold” while the energy enters. This will become more apparent as the day progresses. Essentially we are walking through a ring of fire again with this pivot point.
This April 4 2013 audio goes into detail about the energy (and Chinnamasta).
Oracle Report Third Quarter Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius
Today Spirit takes over to work with whatever we have developed since the New Moon. So this means we step out and let things take their course. These types of days are always a leap of faith, but we have strong faith here. Our part in this is to let go and place our focus and energy on nature.
The message is short and simple today: get grounded.
Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.
Alright. We have Chinese New Year on the New Moon. It’s the year of the Black Water Snake, it can be quite a prosperous year for many. You can set your intent towards that energy and know that it will require some changes.
What is being called for now is to actively change self, so self-improvement, correcting wrong doings, working in the world from a higher vibration, responding to situations with more mastery, etc. And that is the true guide to prosperity there.
We will also have Mardi Gras and the vibration under the current influence of Jupiter energy, that is also very prosperous. The energy on the inner planes around Mardi Gras looks very festive, vibrant.
Again probably a more appropriate time to make New Year’s resolutions right around Mardi Gras, that day and the next day.
So vibrationally think about how you’re putting yourself forward in this New Year and what you want to receive as an outcome and what you are willing to do to achieve those.
Alright Dear Ones. As always, thank you and my love to you.

February brings the potential for a gentler heart-centered month, which is due to a prevailing watery Pisces theme throughout this period. Mars and Mercury both enter Pisces during the first week, followed by the Sun and Venus later in the month. Neptune, which rules Pisces, will make alignments with all of these planets. There will also be three planetary stations that include Ceres and Saturn, with Mercury turning retrograde in the last week.
We begin the month still under the January Capricorn lunation period, which brought a mental focus of structure, organization and analysis. In this last week, we are in a finishing up and evaluating phase. With all the water energy, we are also taking stock of our feelings and how best to work with them.
On February 4, Ceres in Gemini turns direct. The urge to take care of oneself or a loved one is strong at this time. Mars also aligns with Neptune today, which suggests playing a savior or victim type of role. This combination can also result in deceptive actions or a passive-aggressive type of behavior. On a higher level, this energy can also be used to do healing work or in selfless service.
On February 5-6, Mercury enters Pisces and aligns with Neptune, which increases one’s sensitivity, empathy and compassion. This is an excellent time to connect with a higher source to receive spiritual guidance, or to make connection with other realms and dimensions. It may be best to avoid detailed mental work and focus more on right-brain type of activities, such as working with guided imagery, poetry, artwork, etc. On February 8, Mercury makes the first of two alignments with Mars for energized thinking and communicating. The second alignment is on February 26.
Oracle Report | Full Moon Phase – Moon in Leo/Virgo
Ruling Mahavidya: Matangi
A values assessment is underway today, contributing to this Moon phase’s undercurrent of bringing awareness and understanding. We are blessed with the vast range that came in along with it (it seemed surreal).
But all of this needs to sink in. Everything that has happened since the New Moon phase needs to be considered. But we need to step back from any pressure that we are putting on ourselves – about anything. Today continues to soothe hurts or fears or make things more efficient and valuable in the ways that are important. It’s an interesting combination – one that we don’t see often.
(Note for astrologers: I am referring to the “Moon phase” – not “New Moon.” Moon phases occur over days – the energy is more fluid in this method. It’s more of a dance than an equation. This site is not about exactitudes. I think that exactitudes are debatable now since we don’t know exactly where in the sky or in what form/property Sophia is operating from. It’s multi-dimensional for sure. But I have no desire whatsoever to debate it. That would be a a diversion and it would be divisive. There is room for all when we are singular in our love for Sophia – all ways are invited.)
The New Moon that comes along mid-day on Friday provides a generous helping of get-up-and-go for forging ahead with our lives at this turning point of the new year, and also brings up both past and future considerations. The Roman God Janus – for which the present month is named – presided over transitions and openings, and had two faces, one looking forward with anticipation; and one, representing a more conservative mode, looking backward. This emblem describes the energy of this New Moon very well. We are now over these next few months entering into the era of Saturn-Uranus-Pluto, a subset of the Uranus-Pluto square aspect that characterizes the entire year of 2013 and several more beyond it. This is a time when it must be recognized that the urge to move forward will be balanced by the equally strong urge to pull back from change.
Djwhal Khul here. Tashi Delek.
Alright then. We have a violet flame that I would like to invoke here. It’s got quite a bit of a pink influence to it. Much like the vibration of the gemstone kunzite. So we’re working with kunzite, which is a love energy, a very soft pink beautiful color, and a violet flame, which is purifying and cleansing.
We have this week a lot of things happening but mostly water disturbances. So today I’m going to talk about maintaining your emotional balance through your spirituality.
It will be more and more important to practice your spiritual resolve during this time period. I anticipate many more challenges, also, perhaps with weather or other ways in which water can be disturbed.
Oracle Report | Balsamic Moon Phase – Moon in Sagittarius
Today begins the Balsamic Moon phase, the time of the month when the veils between the worlds are thinnest. It’s a magical time, a time of release of what has burdened or not worked out for us over the month, and a time for preparing the ground for a new beginning.
“Inspiration” continues to quietly whisper to us today, but in order to hear it, our minds must be quieter than they have been. In order to quiet the mind right now, it will help to let go of the focus being on yourself and put the focus on others. The way this will work best is to do this from your inner self. This means that our locus of control still radiates from the inside, but we target our attention on others.
Oracle Report | Disseminating Moon Phase – Moon in Virgo/Libra
Mercury makes a square to Uranus today and this means we want to take care with what we say to others. Things come out of our mouths before thinking. Knee-jerk responses are common. Usually this aspect brings out things that are just under the surface, waiting to be heard. Some people will take this to the extreme and use intimidation.
We have the added influence of still being in the Disseminating Moon phase – the time of the lunar month when we are directed to share our thoughts, feelings, and ideas with others. Unexpected news or disclosures are possible. Communication is the highlight today, but everything needs to be softened up and nurtured. This energy has harsh effects. We can moderate this with simplicity and getting back to basics. Show you care or show your affection if faced with a harsh circumstance.
Oracle Report ~ Disseminating Moon Phase – Moon in Leo/Virgo
There is beautiful energy in place for harnessing personal power and beginning anew. It’s not a natural time for a new beginning (that would be with New Moons) but there is much to work with if you want to start something. Disseminating Moon phase is the time for sharing. What we share with each other builds our awareness and provides information we need on our personal journeys.
Be aware that there is an element today where things are not as they appear (including some people). This is not a good day to sign anything important or to commit to something you aren’t one hundred percent sure about. There’s too much potential for deception.
January is highlighted by a strong communication theme, as both lunations align with Mercury. Several planets in Capricorn bring needed structure and grounding to our goals and projects. Therefore it is a good month for making new resolutions. Later in the month there is forward momentum and a renewed sense of expansion when Jupiter aspects the Sun and turns stationary direct.
We begin the month still under the December New Moon in Sagittarius, with the themes of optimism, freedom and truth-seeking. Uranus turned direct on this same day, giving us more confidence to pursue our ideals, but has also led to more unexpected changes, events and erratic weather.
The month begins on an expansive note with a grand air trine on January 4, between the Moon, Mars and Jupiter. There is a feeling of confidence and buoyancy, so it is a good day to initiate social events or other projects involving communication. As Mercury also squares Uranus at this time, we may receive flashes of intuition. However, beware of verbal blunders and accidents due to overextending oneself. Mercury aligns with both Pluto and Saturn on January 6, which brings depth and stability to our thinking and actions.
On January 7, Mars in Aquarius forms a challenging square to Saturn in Scorpio. This aspect can result in delays or other frustrating circumstances. This energy can be described as trying to drive (Mars) with the brakes on (Saturn). It is best to avoid important new beginnings over the next few days.
Oracle Report | Gibbous Moon Phase – Moon in Gemini/Cancer
Let’s re-group by reviewing what’s been happening this lunar month – the time since the New Moon. Here’s an excerpt from the report written on the first day of the New Moon – December 13:
Fresh energy arrives today with the New Moon in Sagittarius. It’s a brand new cycle – one that is going to find us streaking across the sky just like the Geminid meteor shower that is currently underway. . . .
These are heavenly fireworks and we will start to make some fireworks of our own this month. Using the traditional location of Earth, the exact conjunction of the Sun and Moon occurred today at 21 degrees 45 minutes of Sagittarius, and in astrology we “round up” to 22 Sagittarius.
But something is off here. The Earth is not located where she was. You may have seen the evidence over the last few years that the poles have shifted a bit – at least 15 minutes in my estimation. This New Moon is actually at 23 Sagittarius.
