Full moon in Aries on October 5th at 12:40pm MDT, ignites love and passion allowing healing of relationships and bringing us into balance with our partnerships. This is where we need to become champions of our hearts as the lines of communication open up to express all that needs to be expressed. Just remember to stay in your heart and express yourself in non-violent and diplomatic ways.
The power of this Full moon is mirrored in Tarot card IV The Emperor. A powerful card of authority and steadfast energy which we need to steady through this opportunity to be completely open and honest about how we feel and what we need. Passions arise with Mars and Venus pairing up and Mercury is there to make sure your thinking and using your words wisely before you act. This passion of energy is going deep thanks to Pluto turning direct trine Mars last week and now trine Venus this week... death to all things in the past and rebirth to new possibilities. Time to stand-up for your heart, you cannot run away... mend your relationships and find new partnerships. Arise!
You have the power and authority! You stand firm in your choices enlightened and crowned; you are the Emperor! You are the commander and chief using the power of Fire. Your thoughts are in alignment with source and your spirit. You stand firm! You know the laws of cause and consequence. Your passion for life ignites the Fire in Your heart. Your recognition is equal to your governance. You are crowned King of your land, protect it with your heart!

On the eve of the New Moon in Virgo (exact on Tuesday September the 19th at 11:29pm MDT) we are already beginning to feel the energy for this new moon and the celebrations of the changing season. Take the time to sit and feel the movement pulling us forward... for there are five planets in Virgo now with Chiron opposing the moon. This is about healing and clearing so you can come into the service of others. With this Virgo new moon so close to the fall equinox and the sun moving into Libra... we must take this opportunity to rebalance. Finally there is a slowing down and an opportunity to exhale from an intense summer season. Self care and love is at the forefront along with clearing and prioritizing our focus to carry us through till the end of the year.
For this New Moon we connect with tarot card IX THE HERMIT which is about grounding in new thought and inspiration in connection to assisting and helping others. Moving from service to self to service to others through the light and the power of the heart. The Hermit is the 9th card of the deck and this new moon takes place at 27 degrees (2+7=9), nines are completions including the period of gestation for new creations leading us right into the visual spectacle in the sky that highlights Jupiter being born from the virgin in the sky on the morning of the 23rd exact at 11:11am MDT! The correspondences for the last three months astrologically, numerically and metaphysically is beyond being able to explain. All I can say is we are at a major shift let me rephrase that, "We are at a major, major, major shift!".
Finding the guiding light with-in your soul opens the doors to a higher purpose.
In the final days of Virgo we are given the opportunity as individuals and as a community to move into deep, "introspection and soul-searching" before the Equinox falls upon us! The call has been made to fast for three days beginning at 6pm on Tuesday September 19th and ending on Friday September 22nd at 6pm. Three days to let go and sacrifice our own physical needs for the needs of spirit; for our friends, for our communities and for the planet. If you feel called to join us then please do.... if you feel you are called only to fast for one day to support those on the longer fast, then please do. If you are called you will know for not eating will be easy and water/life will be your nourishment. Till we meet again in the new season! Blessings, Ria-Mae.
Full Moon in Pisces direct at 1:02AM tonight, 9/6/2017 MDT. It is no secret, the energy flux of the eclipse season is continuing to effect our internal workings. Seemingly coming from no where with no rhyme or reason the energy continues to be causing much anxiety, pain in the spine/heart and for some of us fear and/or anger. Even-though you may have already moved through your own inner work there continues to be a feeling of unease and you may be wondering why? Rest assured this is a collective experience as many have been contacting me over the past five days experiencing headaches, anxiety, sadness, anger and fear. Let us remember what it is like to experience a burn and how at first it stings but the intensity of the pain is experienced in the aftermath, such is the power of this eclipse season. Tonight the full moon in Pisces with Mercury turning direct will be another activation, here we may finally feel like we can breath and beginning moving forward as the pressure will now simmer and start to cool down.
We as a collective can offer the last of our concerns, worries and fear to the moon in Pisces. Where the image of our deepest fears are portrayed in Tarot Card XIII THE MOON. This is known as, the blood and inner disturbing as, "It is always the darkest before the dawn". Will you dream of fortune or disaster? Will you give away to your nightmares or finish the final taming of your lower natures to emerge on the other side...born a new child of god on the equinox?
You understand the deep recesses of the polluted waters in the unconscious mind tainted by the past and our ancestors. You are THE MOON; mastering the primitive path of raw animal instincts. You clear the past and the bloodlines transcending repressed shortcomings, weakness and projected fears. All invisible things are brought to the surface. You rain the light of heaven in the dark corners and find all the missing pieces of yourself in the magic mirror of life.
This is the fullness of a massive change taking place and the next two weeks will be our final wrap-up...so get yourself organized and cleared. It's time to finalize and prepare for the Virgo New moon in two weeks! May you rise from the ashes and be born a new, we are the phoenix. Blessings, Ria-Mae.
