Taurus Full Moon: Breaking through Confinement

 

 

 

The full moon in Taurus this Wednesday, October 24th is a very rare event. Usually a Taurus full moon is all about stability, getting grounded in what you love, solidifying parts of yourself, and getting comfortable....but not this time around!

 

 

The moon will be conjunct the rebellious planet of Uranus and with it comes an up-rooting of where we have gotten too comfortable. Uranus calls for freedom. Freedom from restriction, control, and contentment. Uranus wakes us up, shakes us up, and lets the pieces fall where they may. I know this might sound daunting, but I promise it's all serving a greater purpose!

 

 

With the dramatic changes that Uranus usually carries going through the fixed earth sign of Taurus, it's probably going to bring destabilizing changes that go on for a while! Taurus is slow and Uranus won't be able to move as quickly through it, but the changes will come and they will make us uncomfortable. The best thing you can do with this energy is to pay attention to it & surrender to it. Begin to trust yourself in your own restlessness. What is your soul calling you change? What do you need freedom from in your life? Are you really awake? These are the things to ask yourself with this full moon.

 

 

The Sun will be in early Scorpio shining light in the darkness and then reflecting the sometimes illusionary security that Taurus can bring. Uranus doesn't want to be blinded by comfort and don't forget that Venus retrograde will be conjunct the Sun so she will be part of this story too. Four planets all pulling on each other for part in the narrative. The moral of this tale might be that sometimes "comfort" is just an excuse for not looking at our pain. The Scorpio/Taurus polarity is about understanding ourselves at the deepest level. It's about recognition, restoration, and rebirthing ourselves again and again so we can actually evolve into who we were meant to be. 

 

 

 

With this Taurus full moon, have gratitude for your desires, your darkness, your rebellious side, and of course your heart. Without all of it, you could't truly embody who you are. Be proud of the different parts of you and don't ever be afraid of change......it's part of growth and without it how could we rise up?

Virgo Health Guide

The servant, the perfectionist, and the Virgin (but I don’t mean sexually!). Virgo energy gets very misunderstood and can be hard to grasp. We have become a =accustomed to the idea that a “virgin” means that somebody is prudish, prissy, & uptight. In reality, the true meaning of a virgin was someone who was possessed by no one and no things, not attached, wanting nothing, and completely unbound. Virgo is here to refine, not restrict. Virgo is always searching for purpose and this comes through in her health. Read More

Leo Health Guide

The Queen (or king), the performer, the heart, the mighty lion. Leo is the potent fire sign that loves to express itself. Leo energy is infectious; their positivity is uplifting. Physically, Leo energy is hot, dry, & excessive. This can pour out into their energy field as well. Sometimes Leos can just be too much, the constant performing & need to spread humor can rub people the wrong way. Don’t take it personally loving Leos, remember that we all are different…. we really wouldn’t want you any other way, I promise. Read More

Pisces Full Moon- Through the Fog is Where We Find the Light

Uranus Goes Retrograde: The Rebel Takes a Breather

Uranus turns retrograde around noon on August 7th this year.  This is going to be a HUGE opportunity for deep change.....on the inside. Once Uranus is retrograde there will be 6 planets (7 if you include Chiron!) in retrograde. This isn't something that happens very often.  The Universe is kind of begging for us to go back inside ourselves, refine all these areas, and come back through the other side with more clarity to go forward into the world with. Uranus will be retrograde August 7th in Taurus & won't turn direct until January 6th 2019 in Aries. Read More

Cancer Health Guide

 

 

 

 

The mother, the healer, the invisible woman (or man). This is Cancer. A sign that takes the phrase “I feel” to a new level. Cancers are a water sign, but they are the cardinal water sign which means they are the ones who can push through and make things happen. There is a vulnerability to you that is always present, but there is also a strength that is so beautiful.
 


If you have a lot of Cancer energy in your chart (especially if it’s your Rising or Moon sign) then you have a very sensitive system. The receptivity of Cancer carries over to the body when it falls in your first house or your moon.  Cancer rules the breasts and the stomach so these areas are something to always pay attention to (especially when you are feeling extra anxious or worried). Digestive health is going to be the focus of health for any Crabs out there. Some the best ways you can improve this area of the body is:
 

 

  • Solar Plexus Meditations

  • Exercises that engage the core like swimming, Yoga, Pilates, and dance

  • Keeping your gut health with whole foods & quality probiotics.
     
     


Cancers are the emotional eaters of the zodiac so it is important for you to be aware of what & why you are putting something into your body. Is it because you know it will nourish you or do you really just want to numb out on some hard-core sugar….and then feel guilty about it (Cancer can carry some guilt!)? Most water signs feel uncomfortable being in their body, but they deal with it in different ways. Cancer usually uses food to comfort. This isn’t always a bad thing, sometimes feeding yourself something you want can be a cathartic experience. The important thing for you to remember is that you do it consciously. Don’t get in the “habit” of eating something just because it comforts you.
 

 

Foods that Support Cancer:

 

  • Fruits & Veggies with high water content (cucumbers, celery, melons, citrus, berries, lettuce)

  • High quality, organic Dairy (in moderation) & other white foods (cauliflower, potatoes, mushrooms, tofu, white meat, & fish)

  • Well cooked foods like soups & broths
     


 
Supplements for Cancer:

 


  • Probiotics

  • Digestive Enzymes

  • L-Glutamine

  • Licorice Root

  • Collagen Powder
     

 


*always check with your doctor when adding supplements and herbs to your routine. 
 
 

 


 
Essential Oils for Cancer:

 


  • Lemongrass

  • Rosemary

  • Clary Sage

  • Bergamot

 


 
 
 
Cancers are the true healers of the Zodiac. They embrace and contain the energy around them. This makes them truly magical. It’s not an easy job, but such an important one. Remember my beautiful Cancer friends, don’t get lost in your feelings or the feelings of others. There is a strength in you that can carry the weight, but you don’t have to carry all of it. By giving yourself proper boundaries, you will help save the world…..seriously.

Chiron Turns Retrograde: The Wounded Become the Healers

At 2 degrees of Aries, the “wounded healer” will begin a six-month lesson in healing the damaged parts of ourselves, personally and collectively.  On December 9that 27 degrees of Pisces he will direct himself and assume that we have done the work we needed to do. Like any great teacher, he will not micro manage us, we are all adults here and the healing is our responsibility. Are you up for some serious growth? Read More

Gemini Health Guide

Speedy, smart, and lots of fun!  Gemini’s are one of the most versatile signs of the zodiac.  They are a mutable air sign so you can literally throw anything at a Gemini and they will find a way out of it or around it! The problems come into play with their superficiality, inconsistency, and nervous nature. These are the things that can get this Twin into trouble. The challenge for a Gemini is to find the depth in everyday life. They tend to get so caught up in all the hustle going on around them that they forget to turn inwards and listen to their soul.

Taurus Health Guide

Lovely, loyal Bulls this health guide is for you.  As a Taurus myself, I can relate to a lot of the health issues and strengths that come from the Taurus traits. You are patient, reliable, warm-hearted, persistent, determined, and love security. On the other hand, you can be pretty jealous and possessive, inflexible, self-indulgent, and stubborn as all get out! Read More
