Astrid is right in alignment with today’s Full Moon in Libra, as she wears her own version of the “balancing scales” on her fur today, but literally IS the symbol for the nodes. AMAZING!!!! I was taken back at first noticing last night and was in awe of how yet again she reflects the perfect messages for us. She’s a walking embodiment of the collective energies, constantly mirroring what is most needed at this time.
Many years ago in my twenties, while researching astrological influences and dissecting my own chart, I came across the nodes. The material was very revealing at the time and I kept hold of notes over the years from those hours of research I did at the library, and continued at home in studies, with it. Then come some 10 years or so later, I discovered that for me, the South and North nodes were the most important key to revealing the path that would be most optimal on my evolutionary journey and returned to my work I’d started back then.
This continued to lead me to where I am now and most fully truly engaging this in the last 2-3 years.
The nodes speak to what you came here to learn, and the past challenges and gifts you brought with you for that journey of growth.
And here Astrid is reflecting this again, at a time period I continue to make more shifts, contemplate new ones, and forge ahead and anchor in a path that leads me onward.
Something the collective is also actively engaged in.
It is also being reflected right now during this Full Moon, when the spotlight is on revealing where imbalances are within the partnerships we have on all levels with things in our lives. A need for reviewing that masculine/feminine dance within our energies, as well as looking at the shadow and hidden parts of ourselves we may still not quite be fully aware of, have a handle on, or realize how important they are in what’s playing out around and in front of us.
You may find yourself facing the need to cut cords that no longer serve you at this time, power dynamics may be playing themselves out, and you may even be experiencing surprises or shocks to help you correct your course and feel more in alignment again.
What things are coming to an end of a cycle and asking for completion in your life?
I know currently a couple of major things are happening right now in my own that are ending some major cycles and that are really interesting to observe how they’re unfolding in uncanny and unquestionably connected full-cycle ways.
This Full Moon seems to be speaking to knowing thyself and putting forth your embodied truth before the desire to keep the peace and save face with others.
Where might you still be walking in someone else’s design of you, rather than creating from the heart of you?
Astrid wears this “node” and “balancing” sign directly at the back of her higher heart. There can be no more direct message for clarity and courage of living your truth and moving beyond the limitations that may be holding you back, while also integrating them in order to strengthen and reinvent the new.
The interesting thing is that you can’t see the symbol on her fur unless she stretches forward fully, like in this photo where I captured it while she bent down and over to eat her evening snacks.
It is otherwise hidden from its fullness.
She is demonstrating that you will need to have courage to “stretch” out of the comfort zones you’ve become accustomed to living in and this will put into activation the path of most alignment and light the path that you’ve felt was calling to you, but never quite could see.
Astrid encourages you to do the new and the challenging, rather than what has always felt easy.
You will need to stretch into the unknown.
Then, you will feel more purpose, passion, and pleasure in life when you jump off the tracks laid before you and build a new train that rides the timeline of your essence.
Here we are at the first New Moon of 2018 and it is a powerful one full of Cappy energy – 6 planets in Capricorn in fact! – which is fantastic for intention focusing and creating the path to manifest goals and resolve things, especially with no retrogrades around. It’s also calling our attention to the body’s inner wisdom, rather than letting the mind lead alone. I love and totally resonate with what astrologer, Pam Younghans, shares in saying that “…..with Uranus in Aries closely square the New Moon, our goals cannot be echoes of the past, or merely revamped versions of previously-held ambitions. Instead, Uranus challenges us to rebel against old definitions of who we are and to reimagine what we are capable of. This imperative is increased due to Uranus’ alignment with dwarf planet Eris and asteroid Pallas Athene — both of which were named for strong, independent, creative, intelligent feminine goddesses. These influences dare us to walk the road less traveled, and to set goals that reflect our unique and very individualized perspective.”
It is time to BE YOU and do things like you’ve NEVER done before, but that truly reflect YOUR unique frequency and song signature in the NOW. Break those old patterns and become your own empowered authority and creator.
Here’s a great breakdown of the energies of this New Moon from Patricia Liles here:
This is such a wonderful post from Jamie of Sophia’s Children to help you navigate the energy of today’s Full Moon in Pisces and Sun in Virgo.
To me, it’s not only supportive for the energy right now, but provides tools in general to help you walk that fine line of balance in your life with these energies always, as life is about understanding and working alchemy with all of these dynamics that the cosmic alignments present to us and learning how to work in natural harmony and flow with them.

This report from Tom/Kaypacha is super resonating for me…speaking directly to things I’m experiencing. Thank you Dawn for sharing it. Hope you enjoy and find your own resonance.
The mantra for this one is:
I can complain and criticize,
Finding fault with you and I,
But I would rather spend my time,
Learning how to fly.
Tom also added a note in the comments below his video post to add some more he had forgotten to speak about in the video. Here it is below, which also is very aligned with my own experience, as I have been investing in myself this past week and upcoming:
Oh yeah, you know what I’m talkin’ about! One thing I forgot about in this report is $! This is a particularly lucky week and if there ever was a time to go for it NOW is the time. That may include that in order to make some money you need to spend some money! This is not to say you should foolishly throw your money away, but with consciousness, invest in yourself and your creations with the intention that their full value will be recognized by others and your energy returned.
Astrologer, Adam Sommer, shares his take on today’s Gemini New Moon, which I feel you’ll find resonating and supportive.
In his reflective synopsis he shares:
“This Moon falls in the last decan of Gemini (20-30 degrees). It is in this space where we experience the most extreme forms of polarity. According to the Egyptians, it marked the end of their calendar year. This has to do with the Summer Solstice. When the Sun leaves Gemini, it enters Cancer, which also is both the highest the Sun will get in the year and the beginning of its descent. The Lord of Light begins to sink, shrink, and wane. And so we get images Cain slaying Abel, fallen men on the battlefield, Castor, the mortal twin being struck down, and a wise man laughing as the blade separates head from body. It is symbolic of the extremes of mortality and immortality or how to work with the tension of our monkey mind and christ consciousness. It’s a territory where the only discoveries will be found within, and will relate to striking a balance between the mind and heart.”
This seems to mirror my last post I shared about the interesting feeling of experiencing polarities of aversion and affinity at the same time to things – all pointing to getting at the heart of the matter where integrative balance and harmony can be created in that union.
Adam also shares this, which resonates with my own experience:
“In a general sense, I feel this Gemini New Moon will bring up issues like I mentioned above, but also plant a few seeds of wonder relating to what it would be like to step out of the electrical storm, and feel what it’s like to be outside of the cloud. Town and city vs. mountain and stream. It is going to challenge us to unplug a bit, to bring our minds down a few decibels, allowing for the capacity of warm limbic resonance, open ears, and tearful empathy for what is actually happening around us. We will come face to face with our “evil” twin and learn to satiate them with love and compassion.”

These are great reminders and supportive ideas for those of you that may find yourself in very challenged times right now. Thank you Laura for sharing.
Synchronously, I had someone this morning ask me for help about how to work with the Mercury Retrograde energy in productive ways, or if that was even possible. I also have heard from quite a few people about heavy challenges. I hope these provide some support.
And I’d like to add the link I shared with the person asking about Retrogrades, which I wrote about a year and a half ago when we were entering a Retrograde period then too:
Just a few things I find myself repeating in various forms to clients, blog readers, friends, family and acquaintances:
1)We’re now in Mercury Retrograde. Don’t be surprised by lost or delayed emails and snail mail, extra typos, messed up travel plans, miscommunications, overreactions and misunderstandings. Par for the course, folks. You can, however, find ways to thrive during a Mercury Retrograde. For those who could use some refresher tips, here’s a 2012 article with all sorts of explanations and suggestions.
2)The topic of friendship is front and center right now. I keep hearing from people facing major upheaval and frustration in their friendships and other close relationships. Part of this may be from the influence of #1, but the current major process of revision transcends a single astrological influence. In case you’ve been living under a rock, planet Earth faces too many extinction level challenges to name in…

For my fellow Pisces brothers and sisters readers (and dear friends many of you are) – has your week and current energy experience felt like this?
I felt nudged to post this right now, although I read it at the beginning of the week, because I sensed perhaps people may be wondering what’s up. And being how Pisces can easily get down on themselves or allow “victim” energy to take over, know that you are simply on a journey to more of who you really are. You derive strength from overcoming obstacles and challenges.
Synchronously, I feel that this is happening for many natives of other signs as well.
It nails things for me, although luckily not feeling the judgment or pain, but definitely in that all-or-nothing-life-decision-choices-phase for sure and both riding the waves, while navigating the waters.
By Stephanie Azaria of TheCosmicPath.com January 5, 2015
“A very important choice is beginning to bubble up, and soon it will be time to commit to a new path once and for all. For now, though, pay attention to anything your body is telling you. Do your best not to listen judgmentally. That is, try not to think of pain or discomfort as “bad”, but instead, as a message you need to receive. Once you can hear it, the discomfort will disappear. Pain and struggle are often wonderful vehicles for getting Truth across. Just suspend the tendency to feel victimized by it. The choice you need to make is a whole life decision. You’re all in or you’re not. This is why your body is getting into the act, so please do pay attention.”
Remember that everything that ever happens is perfect and begin this journey to the new you from there.
(Thank you SBG for sharing this week’s energy forecast) 😉
Change is happening!! Make the change! We must release, let go, and drop things, in order to have the new. There are a lot of extremes being felt and experienced, so we really have to relax and breathe, while we “expect the unexpected”.
Be the peace within the chaos.
This is NOT a time to make spontaneous, quick decisions or impulsive moves…patience, maturity, integrity is needed during all the surprises happening.
Now is all about detachment…you can have your intentions and ideas, but don’t get attached to things, because it’s all unpredictable right now and the most important thing is only to take a step and see where that step leads you without jumping ahead.
New stuff in all areas of our lives are constantly going to be coming in, but wise discernment and decisions, as well as learning not to react, are key.
Remember that all things are temporary, but the essence of these experiences is what remains with us, will enrich our lives, and seed the new.
Kaypacha’s mantra this month is great, which you’ll find with Laura’s comments.
Kaypacha gives us an astrological warning to “expect the unexpected,” “hold onto our hats and make the change.” He warns us against rash decisions, because the energies are wild. He doesn’t use the terms “Problem, Reaction, Solution,” but his video explains the current challenge to have patience so as to make wise decisions, not just go by impulse or extreme attachments. He notes in the comments section on YouTube: “The great depression happened as Uranus in Aries squared Pluto in Cancer and both Hitler and Roosevelt came to power in 1933 when they were exact…. this is the time when we will see one type of social change or another… let’s hope it is for the better….. Injoy!”
He describes how Spirit gives us only the next step or two at a time, often not the entire picture. Especially with this sixth of seven Uranus-Pluto Squares, things come and go…

As we approach 11/22’s New Moon in Sagittarius, here are some guiding insights from Tom Lescher/Kaypacha, once again on the intense energy we’re working with.
I love that Kaypacha is at the Giza Plateau in Egypt for this broadcast of the astrological energies abound, as he emerges from the King’s Chamber and visiting the Sphinx on this day, and continues on to Luxor. What perfect energy for what he shares about in terms of “deep, deep” energies and feelings around belief systems – the core limiting or expansive ones we have – and personal authentic truths being brought to the surface from the depths.
My two journeys to Egypt were the most profound of my personal experiences and transformations in this life – full on Kundalini awakening and complete new embodiment through a literal transmutation that took place from my own personal core depths while there, and so I have a bit of a deep connection with the ancient energy there, to say the least, stemming from my soul’s history and beyond.
Great info once again from Kaypacha on this “Phoenix or Unicorn rising” energy, as he shares it.
Discovering, exploring and aligning with your authenticity and inspired vision….letting go and starting anew…..passionately listening to the creative and magickal inner child that has heart wisdom to support you into the expansiveness and freedom of who you really are outside of the box – which offers others hope through your embodiment of these things.
Integrate your own wounds and become a “lighthouse” for others through the expansion of limited realities.
Thank you to my sweet friend Dawn Vierra of Reiki Dawn for sharing Tom’s video.
This is a fantastic and thorough article on today’s New Moon in Scorpio energies by Simon Vorster. Thank you Laura for sharing it.
“The new lunar cycle in Scorpio brings with it a powerful cosmic flush”
“we will need to confront the inner core vibration of who we are. We have to dig deep, to the soul level….to the dark inner landscape”
“total security can only be found from within”
“It is time now to establish that personal, inner authority in the world. This is key to actualizing our desires and becoming awake to them. With this knowledge we are able to make choices to move away from, and stop supporting, these outdated structures one step at a time.”
this is a time of total “inner spiritual transmutation” – transmutation has become one of my favorite and most potent words over the last couple of years
we are on an “inward journey back home”
“we are powerful beyond measure”
“we are the Universe expressed in human form”
Read on to get the full story and how you can harness this potent energy.

After conquering the wasted lands, the quest of the warrior again commands that we march into a world unknown – the wilderness we call our home.
We are entering Hades’ lair. Don’t be afraid! The new lunar cycle in Scorpio brings with it a powerful cosmic flush in which the process of total inner transmutation is available for us. In order for us to do so we will need to confront the inner core vibration of who we are. We have to dig deep, to the soul level.
Welcome to dark inner landscape of your own soul.
Happy birthday Scorpio!
Understanding the Vibration of Scorpio & Pluto
The vibration of Scorpio is linked with evolution. In nature we observe it as the caterpillar’s metamorphosis into a butterfly – the…
