Follow the Moon: Astrology of intention and mindfulness

My interest with astrology lies with helping people see how following a practice of intention and self-awareness leads to a fuller relationship with Mystery. Astrology is a wonderful tool for this. My weekly column orients readers to the seasonal energy of each month's Sun sign in order to set magical/mindful intention for the lunar month beginning at the New Moon.

Each week I write about the unfolding energies that support and challenge our intentions. The ebb and flow of the lunar cycle resides deep in our souls. Through following the phases of the Moon, we remember the natural cycles that guide us.

Astrologers divide the lunar month into eight phases. These are:
New Moon: Dreaming
Crescent Moon: Beginning
First Quarter Moon: Manifesting
Gibbous Moon: Perfecting
Full Moon: Illuminating
Disseminating Moon: Sharing
Last Quarter Moon: Evaluating
Balsamic Moon: Surrendering

Come follow the Moon as we practice intentional awareness together.

Follow the Moon: Forecast for August 24, 2014 - August 30

We are moving into the harvest season where I live. The Sun has gloriously infused the Earth with life-force energy during the growing season and from this pulsing and expansive energy, the Earth produces countless gifts. These gifts, the harvest of the alchemy of fire and earth, are the source of vital energy and wellness for all living beings. Virgo is the alchemist who takes the life force energy of the Sun and helps transform it into wellness. This is no small task! Virgo may at times be humble, but it is never unnecessary.

The lunar cycle in Virgo begins this week. We have the opportunity to align ourselves with this seasonal energy to become the alchemists of our own wellbeing. I get a sense that this work is essential. I know I need firm practices of wellness to maintain my joy and vitality as we move further into the changing times ahead. Virgo qualities are called for, and if I am truly to achieve a better level of wellbeing in my life I’ll also need to look with clear eyes at the ways Virgo powers can devolve into perfectionism and anxiety. This is the double-edge sword of Virgo’s excellent attention to detail and its desire to cull the best from the season’s harvest.

Virgo’s archetype is the Virgin. This word has a lot of baggage. However when we unpack it, we come to understand more about Virgo’s gifts and alchemical powers. There once was a time when the word virgin did not mean simply never having had sex. It meant the ability to renew one’s sexual sovereignty through dedicated practices. This is an alchemical process of transformation if there ever was one! I wonder how and why this practice was crafted? As the Virgo lunar cycle begins, these questions are prominent for me: What is purity? Why renew sexual sovereignty? What kind of dedication and practice helps one to achieve this type of sovereignty? What is the potential of this power? Sexual sovereignty is a potent concept that extends into all arenas of life, not just the bedroom. As I think to other Virgo archetypes: the Priestess, the Hermit, the Apprentice, the Dedicant, the Healer, I wonder how sexual sovereignty is linked to these aspects of this sign. When the Moon joins the Sun in Virgo on the 25th, I invite you also to dream and wonder about the power of the virgin. What do you need for wholeness? What practices will renew your sovereignty?

This week Mercury in Virgo, one of the two signs that Mercury rules, is actively stimulating our desires to be alchemists. Can we find just the right formula to fuse the life-force gifts of Leo with the healing gifts of Virgo? A distinct challenge will be learning how to discharge anxiety that may come up this week. Mercury is part of a potent aspect pattern called a Yod for the first three days of this week. All things Virgo kicks into hyper drive with the quincunx between Uranus and Mercury. Daily practices that calm and gently energize the body and mind will help us maintain presence, as we are stimulated to respond quickly to change. See the forecast for the August 25 New Moon for more about the planetary influences of this lunar cycle.

Forecast–August 24, 2014 – August 30

Moon in Leo
Sunday, August 24.
Let the taste of this last day of the Leo lunar cycle linger on your tongue. The Sun is dipping closer to the southern horizon every day (in the Northern Hemisphere). Summer is sailing into fall like a setting Sun. Perhaps this sweet taste of summer will help us with our alchemical processes of achieving well-being. Mercury in Virgo, which can sometimes be prone to nervous anxiety but also prone to pragmatic solutions, is quincunx to agitating Uranus. The benefit of this transit can be to shake us out of a stupor. We need to be proactive in creating systems of wholeness and health in our lives. Mercury is also opposite Chiron in Pisces, further illuminating a need to find those anchoring practices that reach into our vulnerable hearts to create compassionate healing for all.

Moon enters Virgo 4:33 am CDT
August 25—New Moon: Dreaming. The animating dream of this season involves the alchemical power of Virgo. This power combines the life-force energy of the Sun with life-sustaining energy of the Earth. The elixir created by this fusion gives us the ability to renew ourselves, to gain wholeness, and to dedicate ourselves to worthy work and service. This power exists and Virgo suggests the ways to achieve it. No wonder so many Virgos seem like they are driven to improve everything—including themselves. The first thing to be addressed with such potent possibility is self-care, self-acceptance, and practices that can help us maintain these qualities. This lunar cycle I am going to pay extra attention to my daily practice. Virgo’s sphere of influence are the ordinary events of everyday life, including daily practice. Virgo’s desire for integration gives great support for ascertaining which practices will actually help us achieve wholeness. One of my teachers offers this list of qualities for a daily practice. They can be combined into one practice or several depending on the time available. She suggests that every day one’s practice should include: 1) something that brings stillness; 2) something that is active; 3) something that is inward gazing; 4) something that engages with life-force energy; and 5) something that is devotional. I like this list, as I can vary what I do daily but still cover all the requirements of my body, mind, and soul.

The chart for the New Moon shows us what we can align with to support our practices and what to look out for as challenges to them. Mercury in Virgo is strongly placed as an ally. Mercury rules Virgo and operates as the master alchemist. This stimulates us to come up with systems and solutions. The warning is that too much mental agitation can create stress, especially since Mercury is quincunx Uranus (agitator planet extraordinaire). The aspect between Mercury and Uranus is part of a more complex pattern called a Yod. Uranus is at the apex of the triangle with Mercury in Virgo and Mars and Saturn in Scorpio as the base. Mercury, Saturn, and Mars invite us to slow down even as we also register the Uranian need for immediate change. This is a paradox and not easy energy to hold. Daily practice can help. With so many overwhelming events and changes happening in the world right now, we are invited to listen to what our bodies and our nervous systems need to maintain wellness. Mars and Saturn conjunct in Scorpio is a picture of determination. Some people will be entrenched in negative behavior but we all have the choice to use this energy for transformative healing through practices of stillness and observation.  We have support for setting firm intentions.

Moon in Virgo
Tuesday, August 26. Over the next two days Venus in Leo is square to Saturn and Mars in Scorpio. The confrontation between passion, commitment, and self-worth may impact our relationships. Some relationships are being scrutinized. The issue may be that we don’t feel supported in our creativity and expression of life force. Other intense relationships can form under this transit, however. With Saturn as the glue, Venus and Mars find passion through the fascination of opposites. The Moon in Virgo encourages getting deeper with our desires. A misunderstood quality of the Virgo virgin is to think there isn’t any passion beneath that purity. Where do you find the intersection between the two?

Moon enters Libra 4:54 pm CDT
Wednesday, August 27. See yesterday’s forecast. Venus in Leo is square Mars in Scorpio. Interactions of all kinds, romantic to social, include the spark of passion. Notice your own and notice how others around you are expressing theirs. Part of the passion is being driven by a strong need for validation. We might have issues with powerful people today. There can be excitement in the friction or we may just need to get away from others to quiet the anger. Passion can be a healer. Look for those opportunities. When the Moon moves into Libra in the early evening (CDT) the desire may be to diplomatically process hurt feelings. 

Moon in Libra
Thursday, August 28.
Do you still need to make up for some impetuous behavior from the last few days? The Moon in Libra encourages us to work it out. We may still feel some friction however with the square between the Moon and Pluto. Are you holding on to resentments? What helps you to let go and see the big picture; after all no one is perfect.

Moon in Libra
August 29—Crescent Moon: Beginning. The first three days of a lunar cycle is about dreaming up an intention for the entire month. This phase encourages us to support our intentions with action. This may involve breaking away from lethargy or a stuck pattern. Right after midnight last night, the Moon opposed Uranus. Uranus is all about waking up and breaking old patterns. Are you eager to get underway or is the lack of restful sleep making you cranky? The Moon in Libra, which is an air sign, may help us if we let a balancing influence give us perspective on the whole picture. My intention for this Virgo cycle is to dedicate myself to daily wellness, balance, and joy. What is your intention? Do one thing to break an old pattern that keeps you from manifesting your intention. Today, the Sun in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. This transit encourages expansion—from the possibility of grounded integrated practice that sustains well being to the transcendent awareness that, no matter how good we are at maintaining these practices, we are connected and whole already.  Share at least one personal insight with another person. Social media is OK, but better that it be face to face.

Moon enters Scorpio 3:53 am CDT
Saturday, August 30. Labor Day weekend under a waxing Moon means we are eager to get ready for the fall. Even if you are on vacation, much of your attention is on the future and how to bring more functionality into it. The Moon in Scorpio could encourage purging unnecessary things from our lives. This is a great way to make room for wellness practices. What gets in your way? Is it really necessary? Listen to your intuition. You know more than you realize about what is serving your intentions for this lunar cycle. I like to think of small steps as being like a homeopathic dose for big change. What small step of letting go can you take today?

Follow the Moon: Forecast–August 17, 2014 – August 23

Fragile. Who would have thought that following an intention of expanding capacity for life force this month would bring up so many feelings of fragility? Vulnerability has been part of my experience this Leo lunar cycle.* I say only a part because, there have been other experiences too, the ones I would have expected from a focus on life force: expanded confidence, expanded engagement with creativity, and expanded appreciation for others who risk living more fully. But the force of the fragility has surprised me. And I don’t think it should have.

Leo is a fire sign, not water. Why all the emotion? Well, Leo isn’t the only influence this month; there is considerable influence from Scorpio (water) too, but really fire and water share a lot of characteristics when it comes to describing people. Both elements feel like they can take over our whole beings. There is no refuge from water or fire when they are strong. Both are necessary to sustain us and both feel like they can annihilate us when out of control. Vulnerability is the state of awareness that what I am reaching for may also overtake me. Can I want too much? Will this fire become too strong? How do I trust the container for these feelings?

Expanding capacity for fire energy means to burn away the smaller container I previously had built around this force and trust that my bigger container will hold it. It is a natural response, I think, to believe that a stronger container means a more invincible one. Ironically, and somewhat painfully, that isn’t so. Allowing myself to feel more vulnerable—to care more, to risk more, to love more—is exactly what having expanded capacity for life force is. Oh, no wonder it is scary.

What is your strategy when you feel this kind of vulnerability? I am encouraging myself to lean into the discomfort while also affirming the expansive life energy that wants to come in with the uncertainty. This week, we have an opportunity to look at these paradoxical feelings. Venus and Jupiter come together to elevate the possibility of living with expanded capacity for life force. These two planets are the benefics, and they invite us to dare more greatly (recommended book by Brene´ Brown, “Daring Greatly”). They also encourage gratitude practices as we take note of our blessings. Venus makes a quincunx aspect to Pluto this week as well. This is not a simple contact between these two planets and so we are encouraged to become more complex ourselves, especially in relationships. Let us expand what it means to be full of life force energy. Can we also be more accountable? More aware of collective complexity? More willing to feel uncomfortable as we hold more?

Another complex aspect forms at the end of the week between Mars in Scorpio and Uranus in Aries. Both of these planets are passionate about change and truth. What makes passion more trustworthy? How do we know we are acting in alignment with our highest values? The way we go about changing the world is as important as how we change the world. As we expand into more life force we can learn to trust the actions that feel both vulnerable and hopeful.

Forecast–August 17, 2014 – August 23

Moon in enters Gemini 5:41 pm CDT
August 17—Last Quarter Moon: Evaluating. It is sometimes the case that we don’t know the value of an experience until we get some distance from it. This may be particularly true of this lunar cycle. With Jupiter’s recent ingress into Leo (Jupiter will be traveling through Leo for the next year), the significance of the Leo journey is greater than usual. We are absorbing more about this sign, and from my perspective, we are absorbing more information about life force energy itself. This phase of the Moon asks us to evaluate the experience of this lunar cycle thus far. Without drawing firm conclusions, what experiences of life force will you put away into your backpack of Leo observations? Today is a great day to observe life force energy. Venus in Leo makes two important contacts over the next two days. Today Venus is quincunx Neptune; tomorrow Venus conjoins Jupiter in Leo. The aspect to Neptune invites us to evaluate our fantasies about life force. It is easy to fool ourselves, to project onto others a way of being that looks more engaging than our own. The other side of Neptune invites us to erase the barriers that separate us. There is no scarcity of life force when someone else’s brilliance inspires our own.

Moon in Gemini
Monday, August 18. Gemini’s superpower is curiosity, which is no lightweight power. Curiosity opens doors. The Moon in Gemini can help us enhance this power. The day sparkles with possibility. Venus and Jupiter are joined together in Leo infusing social situations with pizzazz, especially early in the day (CDT). I know, Monday mornings are not usually the time we want to sparkle socially. However, the good vibes can take us through the day. In contrast to this extraverted energy, Mercury in Virgo, ruler of both Gemini and Virgo, makes an opposition to Neptune in Pisces.  Mercury helps us ground into pragmatic approaches to mysticism. Remember that curiosity? Approach the day with your own questions about how you can bring it all together: life force, pragmatism, and a sense of wonder. 

Moon in Gemini
Tuesday, August 19. Yesterday sizzled with doors opening, profound insights, and just plain old fun in the right circumstances. There isn’t much going on today that will disrupt that flow. Continue asking questions and finding serendipitous answers.

Moon enters Cancer 3:45 am CDT
Wednesday, August 20. The mood shifts today and we really begin to notice the waning energy of this lunar cycle. With the Moon in Cancer, we are more likely to want to spend time at home or around those folks who feel like family. The Moon in Cancer soothes away any friction caused by the opposition between Mercury in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces. This friction may have felt like frustration with someone else who either wants you to be more practical or more inspired. From the resting place of Home, you find the right balance for yourself.

Moon in Cancer
August 21—Balsamic Moon: Surrendering The Moon, Venus, and Mercury aspect Pluto today, giving us the perfect energetic support for beginning to put this lunar cycle to rest. What needs to be done before you let go of this cycle? I’ve been noticing that as I expand my capacity to feel more life force energy, I am also feeling more vulnerable too. Feeling more energy also brings up more emotion. With the waning Moon in a water sign and with all these contacts with Pluto, the planet of death and transformation, these feelings may be strong today. I’m telling myself that this is a good thing. When I let down my shields, I can hold more of the radiant energy represented by Leo. Mars is right in the middle of Scorpio, giving support for going deep into our fears. Mars in Scorpio is fierce. When the Moon squares Uranus today, we may fiercely desire to make change happen, Now! I wonder how standing in our radiant life force energy will impact this passion? The final transit today brings us back to accountability and integrity. Saturn and the Moon form a trine. You can trust your honest emotions.

Moon enters Leo 3:49 pm CDT
Friday, August 22. Sun enters Virgo. Just as the Moon returns to Leo for the last few days of this Leo lunar cycle, the Sun moves into Virgo. Although we may want to get busy cleaning out the closets, buying school supplies, or generally going into worker bee mode, it may be best to put it off until the New Moon in Virgo (August 25) gives us the signal to go full steam ahead. Now, let the Virgo balsamic Moon help you to discern how the experiences of this lunar cycle have impacted you. What, if anything, feels a little raw still? What, if anything, feels healed? The middle of summer is over (in the Northern Hemisphere). We are headed into the fall before too long. What final piece of summer Sun do you wish to invite into your soul?

Moon in Leo
Saturday, August 23. We are being asked to go deeper in order to move ahead with the changes we need to make. That can feel frustrating, but when we are sure we know what we want, why we want it, and what we are willing to do for it, then we have the pleasure of moving ahead quite quickly. Mars in Scorpio is the force of looking underneath the surface before we impulsively act (energy furnished by Uranus in Aries). These two reactive planets are quincunx to each other. Watch out for short fuses and lots of frustration. The Moon’s contact with Jupiter and Venus in Leo may lighten things or make them more volatile. Leo is a fire sign after all. Take a breath into your expanded capacity for life force energy. How does that shift the situation? Keep doing it.

Follow the Moon: Forecast–August 10, 2014 – August 16

The season of Sun-ruled Leo calls us to acknowledge every person’s essential radiance. To answer this call I’ve been exploring my own capacity for experiencing life force/energy during this Leo lunar cycle.* So far I’ve noticed both highs and lows on the journey. This combo makes perfect sense considering the influence of dynamic tension between planets in Leo and Scorpio (the fixed signs of fire and water) this month. Astrological theory says the challenging aspects give us gifts as we learn to manage complexity. The Full Moon this week will give us more complexity. Another fixed sign, the Moon in airy Aquarius, adds itself to the mix.

Even in this complexity and shifting experiences, the goal remains: to remember my essential radiance. I’ve had the pleasure of having some amazing teachers who have challenged me to step more fully into my own radiance. One of these teachers is magical and spiritual practitioner, T. Thorn Coyle. In her book “Evolutionary Witchcraft,” she gives an exercise for increasing our access to power and energy by imagining stepping into circles of greater capacity and noticing how that feels. The exercise is both simple and profound. As I imagine moving into fuller capacity for life force energy my posture changes, I feel my feet firmly on the ground and connected to the earth, I see more clearly, I am more curious about my surroundings and less self-obsessed. The feeling is of one of confidence and connection.

Confidence is what we imagine every Leo Sun child must feel, and in my years of talking with Leos is very seldom actually felt. Leos, in their vulnerable confidence are showing us what we all feel from time to time—a need to shine that can be held back by self-doubt, shame, or fear. Projecting confidence onto others, thinking our own self-assurance must be fraudulent, fearing exposure of our self-doubt, needing approval, and more traps of the ego are the shadow side of capacity for life force energy. I know these traps well. The gift of the Leo season is this: With the generosity of the Sun’s own radiance, we have the opportunity to burn away a little more of these doubts and fears. Even if at first we are just pretending, we can step into a circle of greater capacity for power. We can practice stepping into confidence, which might seem like a sham at first, and find ourselves gradually living lives of more radiance and connection.

Forecast–August 10, 2014 – August 16

Moon in Aquarius
August 10—Full Moon: Illuminating. Light, light, light! Before I get into the specifics of this Full Moon, I want to acknowledge the Moon, which is today filled to the brim with light reflected from the Leo Sun. I’m not one of those people who think light is better than dark, so don’t get me wrong. We aren’t being saved from the dark by standing in this reflected light. The dark needs light so it can be seen for itself. Therefore it stands to reason that the light also needs the dark. Complementary—sometimes seeming antagonistic—the forces of light and dark play around the edges of this Full Moon. If you are able, try to stand under the light of the Moon tonight and sense into the wonder of the light and the dark.
A powerful aspect pattern called a t-square is the predominant influence upon this Full Moon. T-squares create friction and some tension. The potential is that through this experience we gain new skills and awareness. The signs involved in this pattern are all fixed, so there can be entrenched resistance to other points of view. The reality is that we feel that important values are at stake and must take in the diverse wisdom of these signs to grow and learn. The planets in this pattern are the Sun and Mercury in Leo (fire), Moon in Aquarius (air), and Saturn in Scorpio (water). Other supporting cast members, Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Scorpio are not in the pattern but contribute to the issues. Remember that Leo provides the intention for this lunar cycle; the Moon from the opposite sign to Leo illuminates a hidden challenge for this Leo intention. This challenge centers around the relationship of the individual to the collective. The give and take between these forces helps to balance our ego needs with purpose and vision for our collective experience. When at odds, Aquarius can suck the flame out of Leo’s radiance; on the other hand, Leo can forget that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Saturn in Scorpio steps in with a reminder to grow up. Much is at stake right now. Saturn and Mars in Scorpio invite us to see ourselves truthfully. Sometimes we do have hungry egos. Sometimes we want to impose collective rules on individuals. Sometimes we are afraid. Notice the ways you hold back your flame. The impulse may be to squelch it because there are so many reasons you think you don’t matter. Can you find a balancing relationship between your own significance and insignificance? Perhaps this is true liberation.   

Every t-square has a missing piece, the sign opposite the squared planet at the apex of the triangle. In this case, Taurus (fixed earth) is the missing sign. What are we missing from earth’s wisdom? Later this week when the Moon moves into Taurus we have the opportunity to notice this missing influence and incorporate it for wholeness.

Moon enters Pisces 7:55 am CDT
Monday, August 11. We step between the worlds for the next two days. The Moon in Pisces encourages us to take the experiences of this Leo lunar cycle into the ineffable place where we are all connected. My light is connected to yours. Your dream is dreamed by me. When the Moon contacts Neptune this afternoon (CDT) this dream-like consciousness increases. Sometimes the feelings that come from this awareness can be too much for our nervous systems. Notice without judgment. When the Moon trines Mars tonight, we gain strength to sit with this discomfort. Surprisingly, we are more optimistic when we face our fears.

Moon in Pisces
Tuesday, August 12. Venus joins the Sun, Mercury, and Jupiter in Leo today. The next three days are the peak of Leo concentration for this lunar cycle. Mercury leaves Leo on Friday. Social interactions are sparked by the charm and charisma of Leo. The feeling of delight is welcomed respite from a troubled world. Venus is the planet that governs our relationships and our experience of beauty. As Venus remains in Leo until September 6, let this planet guide you to the sustaining flame of creativity and connection. It is good to invoke the blessing because Venus in Leo will also challenge us to look at the ways we need and seek validation from others. There is a balance to be found here too.

Moon enters Aries 8:00 am CDT
August 13—Disseminating Moon: Sharing Unpack everything you ever thought about the element of fire, both in the literal, physical sense and the symbolic one as well. The Moon in cardinal fire sign Aries makes a trine to Venus and Jupiter (both in Leo) today. Aries is the fire sign that uses this element to initiate new things. Fire is transformative and destructive. The fires on the west coast of the U.S. show us this tragically. Leo is the fire sign that protects this power. Paradoxically, Leo has a playful, childlike approach to very serious business. Do you see this connection and contrast in your life this month? In this phase of the Moon, we take the lessons we’ve learned and begin to give them the meaning that will serve us for a while. What do you want to take away from this lunar cycle? I know I want to increase my capacity to experience life force energy. Fire illuminates our fears about power. It also can transform shame into self-love. With support from the two benefics, Jupiter and Venus, it may be time to step more fully into that love.

Moon in Aries
Thursday, August 14. Today might not be as pleasant as yesterday. The Aries Moon keeps showing us the challenges of fire while it makes a square aspect to Pluto and a conjunction to Uranus. These two planets, while currently moving away from an exact square with each other are still influencing world events and our attitudes around them. They return to another exact square in December. Uranus and the Moon light a fire that shouts: Wake up! Pluto keeps revealing the toxic structures that need transformation. The easy response is to blast away with firepower, but a deeper compassion can guide us. Today Jupiter in Leo forms a quincunx with Neptune in Pisces. The paradox involves how to be awake and alive to this desire for transformation while at the same time open and receptive in our hearts. My personal belief is that the more we can hold this paradox in ourselves, the more the world itself can move toward compassionate action.

Moon enters Taurus 10:58 am CDT
Friday, August 15. The day may start decisively for you. Mars made a favorable aspect to Pluto in the middle of the night last night and we might wake up with a clear idea of something we must do. Follow that instinct if you have it. The journey should be rich. When the Moon moves into Taurus we get to experience that missing piece I wrote about at the Full Moon (August 10). Taurus is the final fixed sign we haven’t heard from this Leo lunar cycle. Fire, water, and air have made a plea. Now earth brings it home. Our bodies and the earth’s body are telling us something. I find it easy to ignore the body’s wisdom (self-revelation: I have no earth planets in my birth chart). But every time I am forced to remember I have a body and it does know something, I am blown away with what I learn. This might be that kind of day for you too. In addition to the Moon entering an earth sign, Mercury moves into Virgo (mutable earth) until September 3. Virgo’s mission is to take the ripening of the Leo Sun into the harvest. Our minds are busy sorting information, just as we would sort grain from the stalk. Let discernment guide you through the rest of this lunar cycle. What serves and what doesn’t?

Moon in Taurus
Saturday, August 16. Passion must be accountable sometime. I believe in following our passions. We have gifts and depths that would never surface if we didn’t. The Taurus Moon reminds us that this discovery around our passion has an impact. That isn’t always bad. In fact, we need the realities of life to push back sometimes to know just what our impact is and how far our passions can go. Something today could tease out your passion and help you realize how important it is. Perhaps you are willing to risk commitment to that passion.
