FULL SUPERMOON LUNAR ECLIPSE IN LEO: The Light-ness of Being
The Full Super Moon Full Lunar Eclipse arrives at 11 degrees of Leo on Wednesday, January 31 at 8:26 AM EST.
A Super Full Moon Eclipse is upon us. It is a time in which to more fully realize the en-light-enment that we each inherently embody. Our recognition of this luminous dimension of the true and authentic self activates the light that we exude to others and to the world. Our personal radiance heals. This embodied light is rising fully within us.
This is the second Full Moon of this month. The first full Moon was on January 1rst. Two Full Moons emerging on the first and last days of the first month of the new year bear great significance, providing a heightened opportunity for us to wake up and see what is really there. What is really really there? What have we not yet seen or recognized within our own lives that was standing before our eyes? This once unseen dimension may have existed for eternity. As this is an eclipse, our revelation will be more than one could have ever imagined. Eclipses enhance our emotional awareness. We will discover some facet of our psyche that was hidden in the realm of the subconscious. Our hearts pound with emotion. And yet, we are enlivened by them. They are long lost friends who celebrate their recognition. As they emerge from the darkness, we greet them.
Lunar eclipses stir the cauldron of emotion. We are being alchemized. Emotional truth is the concoction of the soul.
Revelations which ultimately transform us, may be painful. And yet, the broken heart is an open heart. In the midst of what may seem harsh and unbearable lies Leo’s expansive domain of heart. Our travails through the darkness eventually unravel into an emergence of light. As the shadow of the earth passes across the face of the Moon, we can use the temporary darkness to embrace our own darkness; for soon the Moon’s full spectrum light of the Sun will once again show her radiant glowing face. The Sun and the Moon are cohorts. They emulate the lightness of being.
When we are born, we emerge from the womb of the Moon into the light of the Sun. There are times in which the Moon must be revisited in order to go inside and comb through our inner life. Then, we once again return to the Sun. When we allow ourselves to contract, there is expansion. When there is expansion, there is contraction. This is the cycle of life.
Leo is a fixed masculine fire sign ruled by the Sun. It’s qualities include charisma, leadership, humor, theatrical style, light-ness, artistic talent, expression, grandeur, royalty, dynamism, flamboyance, ebullience, and courage. Leo’s dark side tends toward egotism, arrogance, pride, cruelty, and the unwillingness to compromise.
As human beings, no matter what our sign, we all fall into darkness during difficult times; or when perhaps we are feeling threatened by something or someone real or imagined. Each and every Sun sign has the capacity for the full embodied light of creative loving expression. Leo’s essential mission is to mirror to us the magnificence of our own being through the expression of our essential purpose.
The relational planet, Venus, is accompanying this lunation. We receive the other’s light while at the same time, exuding our own. The past karma of relational instability has risen to a compassionate realization of our partnership with each other as the facilitators of personal growth and soul-full transformation.
We are traveling at the speed of light.
May you find yourself shining brightly within your own being.
Leo Full Moon Blessings Upon You

CANCER SUPER FULL MOON: Emotional Alchemy
This writing is dedicated to The Divine Mother. May we know her. May she guide our emotions as they flow into the current of oceanic love.
The Super Full Moon arrives at 11 degrees of Cancer on Monday, January 1 at 9:24 PM EST.
What better way to start the New Year than with a Full Super Moon in all of her luminescence? Warmth and radiance pour forth. We are standing in the spotlight of our own illumination.
A supermoon is a term coined in modern astrology to define an event in which a Full Moon makes the closest approach to the Earth on its elliptical orbit. During such events, like the tides, our emotions run high and strong. We have been swimming vigorously through whirlpools of tears; both of joy and of sorrow. Propelled by our awareness of the fragility of life, our feelings are washed ashore. We greet them at the shoreline.
As Moon ruled Cancer is the quintessential sign of pure emotional sensitivity; our emotions are immeasurably heightened. We have pristine vision of our personal palette of sentiment that perhaps has been invisible to us in the past. Our very beings are an array of love, joy, hope, anticipation, sorrow, regret, and the daunting awareness that time is ever fleeting. We vow to cherish each and every moment. We treasure the precious people in our lives. Every-thing and every-one become even more meaningful to us. The gates of our hearts are swung more fully open.
Life looms large at The New Year. Life looms even greater during a Super Full Moon. As we combine these events, there is a sacred marriage in service to our own spiritual purification.
We think of beginning anew at the New Moon, and yet, this Full Moon is a pure beginning. As we enter the New Year infused with our own sentience, we emerge from a place of confusion into an enlightened emotional landscape. This lunation takes us to a highly elevated juncture; a towering precipice from which to leap into the oceanic waters of Divine Love. We have been swimming vigorously through whirlpools of multifaceted tears propelled by our awareness of the fragility of life. Now, our feelings are washed ashore. We greet them at the shoreline.
Cancer is a cardinal feminine water sign ruled by the Moon. Therefore, this Cancer Moon is right at home within her own rulership. The significant facets of this sign are emotions, tenderness, home, family, children, tradition, mother, healing, connection and the nurturing of self and others. Cancer’s archetypes are The Mother, The Healer, and The Invisible One.
The softness of this time is imbued with a Grand Water Trine from the Moon to Neptune to Mars-Jupiter and back to the Moon. Trines are geometric forms comprising a perfect triangle. They are beacons of flow and ease and grace. Water is the element of emotion, empathy, compassion, receptivity, and psychic sensitivity. This Mother of all Moons is keeping kind company with her planetary companions. As they accompany her, they too are assisting us so that we may access the Divine Feminine within as we embrace all that is Yin. As we soften, we open our arms and graciously receive.
Much has been settled within us. As the waters calm, there is a new seascape of the life which flows forth. Tears may spill. Let them flow. Tears cleanse our perception. Perception is our window to the world.
Light transcendant is cast upon our path; a moonglow like no other.
The Moon is within our reach. We only have to reach within.
Cancer Super Full Moon Blessings Upon You.

TAURUS FULL MOON: CULTIVATING OUR VALUES
The Super Full Moon arrives at 22 degrees of Taurus on Monday, November 14, at 8:52 AM EST.
Super moons imbue an already highly vitalized full moon with heightened emotion combined with enhanced conscious awareness brimming with clarity. We are gifted with the visual luminescent spectacle of the Moon’s close proximity to Earth. Do look up over the next 3 days! Coupled with her sheer magnificence, we are endowed with intimate moments in which to become closer to ourselves and each other.
Full Moons offer us a pinnacle moment in which we have the opportunity to fully realize an area within our lives, our psyches, our environment and the greater world. A potent truth, a prodigious illumination, a glistening awareness, alters the course of our set direction, as now we are navigating with a fresh perspective of our inner compass.
At this time, Taurus the Bull, is attuning us to the inherent values of our soul. In recognizing these values, in questioning whether or not we are adhering to them in our daily lives, we also assess whether or not we are truly in a place of valuing our authentic selves. For it is only when one truly values the self, that we can value another. This Taurean Moon inspires us to value ourselves and each other as we all walk this path together at a most disparate juncture in our collective journey.
Taurus is a fixed earth sign, ruled by Venus. When the Moon is in Taurus, it is exalted. This is the highest expression of the Moon. The qualities of silence, patience, steadfastness, determination, loyalty, peacefulness, tranquility, sensuality, beauty, nature, musicality and grounding are themes which are quietly beckoning us to their attunement.
Wherever Taurus resides in your natal chart is a distinct area in which you must live closely aligned to your particular values. It is a sector whereby valuing the inherent beauty of the self will only enhance your expression in the world, the positive affect you have upon others and the way in which you view and experience life. In essence, wherever Taurus resides within you, is where you can relax. It is where the theme of your particular brand of peace resides. There, all is well, as long as you embrace your true value in a manner whereby you receive your divinity within your humanity.
What do you value about yourself? What is important to you? Who is important to you? Are you expressing yourself in a manner in which you are aligned with your core values? How can you honor your true nature? What brings you peace? How do you offer peace to others? What makes you happy? Where do you find your deepest tranquility?
As Taurus is the quintessential earth sign, communing with nature at this time offers healing and rejuvenation. Other Taurean activities such as making music, listening to music, nurturing the body through touch, pleasing the palette and quiet contemplation will serve you greatly at this time.
Despite worldly appearances, we are offered a deep swim in the sea of tranquility. Inner peace is available for the taking. Slow down and breath deeply over the coming days.
FULL TAURUS MOON BLESSINGS UPON YOU.
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you which is of love, of truth,
of light, and of peace.
When you are in that place in you
I am in that place in me,
WE ARE ONE.
