RIP Mr. Bourdain

“As you move through this life and this world, you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.” -Anthony Bourdain

Full Moon in Scorpio; April 29nd, 2018 ☾♏

“As the lotus rises on its stalk unsoiled by the mud and water, so the wise one speaks of peace and is unstained by the opinions of the world.” – Buddha

The most potent Full Moon of the year peaks at 8:59 PM EST on Sunday as the Sun in sensual Taurus opposes the Moon in mysterious Scorpio. Taurus and Scorpio are opposite signs, but they also have similarities, both being Yin, fixed and possessive.

Earth sign Taurus is about peace, stability and pleasing the senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. Water sign Scorpio is about exploring the depths of existence; the things that go beyond the physical experience – spirituality, emotions, death, rebirth. It’s the Natural vs. the Supernatural.

Under these Truth or Dare moonbeams, extreme behavior, amplified desires and emotional declarations are possible. But, the Moon in the dark realm of Scorpio also opens the portal to healing at the deepest level.

“Ô, Wanderess, Wanderess
When did you feel your 
most euphoric kiss? 
Was I the source 
of your greatest bliss?” 
-Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Venus, our planet of sugar, spice and everything nice moves into playful Gemini for the next four weeks! The path to pleasure in the realm of the Twins begins with words, as we tend to bond more readily on a mental level.

Sun in Aries + Spring Equinox; March 20, 2018 🍃♈

Welcome back, Persephone!

The Sun blazes into fiery Aries on March 20th, marking the Spring Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of a brand new Astrological year!

Today, Light and Dark exist in sacred balance. After this point, the days will get longer and the nights will get shorter until the Summer Solstice on June 21st, when the pattern will reverse.

“And so the spring buds burst, and so I gaze,
And so the blossoms fall, and so my days …”
― Onitsura

As we shift out of the soft, ethereal energy of Pisces, and into the fearless, action realm of Aries, we’re likely to be seeking out things that are new, fun and different.

We now have an excess of Fire energy. At this time, we can become more impulsive, direct and uncomplicated in our needs, but the tendency to be a bit of an asshole short-sighted and selfish is highly possible.

New Moon in Pisces; Mar. 17, 2018 ♓

“I dream my painting and I paint my dream.” ― Vincent van Gogh

A new chapter begins on Saturday, March 17th, 2018, at 9:11 AM EDT as a New Moon occurs in the mystical twelfth sign of the Zodiac. Pisces’ watery landscape offers us a gateway to the higher realms of human consciousness. The illusory world of dreams, shadows and secrets is as valid to the Piscean as the reality of this one, sometimes even more so.

“If you tend toward the extremely sensitive side of the spectrum anyway, you’ll want to watch your boundaries to guard against the ‘energetic sponge’ phenomenon, should you encounter negative people or toxic behavior.” – Amanda Painter

Venus & Mercury enter Aries; March 6th, 2018 ❤♀☿♈

“I will never forget your fire. I can’t wait to see what you do.”
Kiera Cass, Happily Ever After

Today, Venus and Mercury blaze into the realm of daredevil Aries and out of the dreamy purple haze of Pisces. Driven by the straight-shooting, fiery vibes of Mars, passion comes through loud and clear as the planet of logic and the planet of love transits bold and exciting Aries.

Desires are expressed spontaneously, enthusiastically, and directly. For lovebirds, old and new, this is great news as Agent Provocateur Aries can light our divine spark through sweet crushes and hot pursuits.

“Clever banter, inspired bursts of brilliance, shameless come-ons—yep, our exchanges will be charged with the Ram’s spirited dynamism. Friendships and flirtations can heat up quickly over the next few weeks.” -Astrotwins

Aries has a reputation as the reckless restless romantic, so flames tend to fizzle out as fast as they sizzle — especially if there isn’t a level of intensity and mystery involved.

When faced with opposition, these fired up planets can instigate hasty actions and provocative remarks.

Full Moon in Virgo; March 1, 2018 ❂♍

Tonight, at 7:51 PM ET, the luminaries peak in Earth Sign, Virgo. This Virgo Full Moon takes in the mystical light of the Pisces Sun, bringing to culmination that which began during the previous Pisces New Moon.

“March 2018 begins with plenty of higher illumination. Put away the petty and superficial playthings of the material realm while exploring the profundity present in philosophical studies about the deeper meaning of life on this fragile planet. Send out your healing thoughts and prayers to humanity and kingdoms of nature around the moment of the Full Moon. Lift people up with cheer rather than pulling them down with criticism.”  -Mark Lerner
