From the Lady Virgo Luna


A full moon in Virgo during Pisces seasons asks as to release our fear, and as the year rolls on to firm up our sense of place in this solar cycle. Lovely Virgo Luna reminds us that for that to be so, we must ensure our internal foundation is built on firm ground- an understanding of self, a love of who we are, and a clear vision of what we seek for ourselves this year. Take the time to be self-indulgent today. It’s not about being selfish (banish that word) it is about making sure you’re cup is full- love the best you can manage for your spirit, your body, and your mind.

Loving yourself best can look like: clearing out your bedroom just so you can make it a better sanctuary; drinking more water so you have more energy; take time out for yourself so you can better hear the wisdom of your guides tonight.

Drink some tea. 

An indulgence for which I have a suggestion:

– Thyme
– Jasmine
– Calendula
– Holy Basil
– Fennel


I love myself deeply and release fear that keeps me still.

Back to Center, New Moon in Leo while Venus is in Retrograde Feels

Forgive yourself.

That has been the overarching message received this new moon.

I’ve had family over, which has always meant for me a hiding of multiple parts of myself- parts that I now realize have become crucial to my well being. This basically means that I’ve rather regressed in my healing in over-dramatic form in the space of a week. Modes of healing I’d ingrained as habit were out of safety and necessity’s sake avoided and left untapped, in big and small ways.

The freedom of going to the river to (visibly) hang with Oshun, call on my Warriors, wear my Ilekes, work Tarot, meditate with crystals, etc is taken from me, or rather I allow it to be taken from me for these safety and necessary reasons. Knowing how ingrained to self and spirit these things are, I then feel guilty for not being bold enough to be fully myself which more or less taps into the low mood swing.

A week of this and I now realize that not only did I stop doing the very visible things, I subconsciously stopped doing the little things I could probably get away with without much mention like making myself herbal tea with intention, burning sage and incense, taking clearing and bringing baths, wearing my crystals. That’s the thing about subduing yourself, you don’t even realize what else you repress.

I just lit a candle for Yemaya, lit some rosemary incense, and drank some tea:- ginger, rosemary, dandelion root, just a bit of hibiscus, with lemon&honey- charged with intention to clear and release (you should try this if you need some release). As soon as I finished my tea I felt immediately centered, aware of myself again, in touch with the pieces I missed all week. Even with family here, the space feels like mine again.

A lesson learned in returning to myself even when it feels impossible. We always have means to regain our power, in small ways that can feel as vital as the very big ways we put a lot of stock in. This new moon calls for us to return to self- particularly in the light of love and forgiveness as Leo calls us back to our own power.


New Moon in Cancer: ALL THE FEELINGS

New moon in Cancer, you say? Prime time for emotions you say? Probably going to want to cry uncharacteristically you say?


Here’s what I wish someone would have told me a week ago, before this new moon. You’re going to want to be held, and it might not come. On a night like this, it might feel like the worst thing. If you are an intuitive, an empath, anything of the like. All feelings will be amplified sevenfold and it may be overwhelming.

“Here we go. Today marks the darkest phase of the moon before its monthly renewal on Wednesday evening. And what a new moon this looks to be. Full of intense emotional purging and reconsidering what we want to belong to, Wednesday’s new moon in Cancer looks to give us the means to unravel the stories that have kept us locked in fear, shame and pain.” xx

So try one or all of the following and:

  • Drink teas with lavender and chamomile and rosemary.
  • Burn ylang ylang, lotus, and/or jasmine incense.
  • Hold rose quartz and moonstone.
  • Write yourself a note, just one if more is too much, of sweetness and light.
  • Watch Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon whenever possible and forget for a moment.

A few reminders and affirmations for this coming week:

  1. What you feel is valid and real.
  2. The boundaries you set deserve respect.
  3. You deserve the care you seek.
  4. A bath sounds like a great idea because it is.
  5. Removing yourself from uncomfortable spaces is your prerogative.
  6. Self-care and self-love is justice and survival.
  7. If no one else is there, remember your ancestral mothers, call on them.
