Night Long Moon
Friday, December 25th, Cancer, 3:11 am PST

Happy Christmas to you! What a special gift we all get to receive today, a Full Moon looking down on us, shining bright, high up in the dark and cold Winter sky. This is a time all about transitioning. Winter is a natural time of slowing down, going inwards, and needing the solace of silence. Just as the Bear hibernates, we need to as well. It's ok if you are needing more quiet and alone time, if you want to be sleeping longer, reading all day, taking long walks in the woods, and craving warm and comforting foods. Be in the natural rhythm of the season. All of these activities will nourish and nurture you right now, which is also directly in alignment with the energy of Cancer. A big part of this Full Moon is the nurturing, mothering energy that Cancer brings. 

We are about to shift to 2016, and into all sorts of BIG things coming our way, this is a perfect time to pause and reflect as we start to transition. What does your heart need right now? How can your honor it in this moment? What wisdom does it hold for you? I really think that right now we are on the edge of transitioning into some huge shifts in our lives. Things we have been wanting, and wishing for, and getting ready for for so long. Now is the time to go inward and get clear, to take that grounding deep breath before you take the leap! Be as clear as you can be about where you are in your life and what you want. Something to be asking yourself is - How committed am I to what my heart desires? This is a big question. I have been learning that the more committed I am to something the more clear my choices can be. Being committed to something requires a lot of you, but it can also guide the way as you move forward. 

And with this energy from Cancer I wouldn't be surprised if your heart is desiring things that have to do with family, home, relationships, protection, nurturing, emotional connection. 

Take this time to take a breath, slow down, be silent, and nurture yourself.

new moon // december


Long Night Moon
Friday, December 11th, Sagittarius, 2:29 am PST

The last few months have been rough ones. We are in a time of being pushed to do and see and be all sorts of things in our lives. Things that are sometimes painful, or things that are challenging, things that allow for growth, and things that open our hearts. 

As the year is winding down it is a time to pause and feel into those changes, and challenges, and growth. To notice how far we have come. And to help us to see where we are going. It's important that when we go inside the cave to hibernate during this time of year that we do so in a way that honors the times we are now in. Reflection should not come from the mind, but from the heart. Feel into what you have been through and where you are now... and where you are going. What direction is your heart pointing? 

We just had a HUGE push of energy from the cosmos - one that might further divide those who are open and those who are not. It is an important time to stay connected to and grounded in the self, to be the anchor in the rough seas. Take some time of solitude and reflection, tap into those things about yourself that are true, and feel into the things that are coming your way. 

This is the last New Moon of the year, so be sure to reflect with intention and make your wishes true to who you are and what you want in your life. You can read more about wishing here. You might want to make your wishes from that earlier question : What direction is my heart pointing? Where does it want to go? See if you can wish for things in your life that your heart is already moving towards. 

Happy wishing!
