Virgo Full Moon opens up a world of freedom and is a huge change agent! Tuesday morning 10:54 am ET, adjust for your time zone. The Sun journeys to Pisces at 6:04 pm ET on Monday, the 18th and the last third of winter begins.
Restorative Yoga with Aromatherapy and Reiki happens again on Saturday April 6th, 2-4 pm with Addie (aka Adrienne) Powers Johnson offering reiki to all. Sign up at Scarborough Maine Yoga online or in studio. Also I think there are a few spaces left in Tarot Reading/Yoga Nidra Journey mini retreat on March 2nd, also at Scarborough Yoga. Read more about each workshop at this link.
I hope you enjoy the changes this Pisces cycle brings! The world (this country) is insane right now, and Uranus promises that will continue until there is radical breakdown and later a restructuring. It's necessary that we go through this destruction/recreation cycle, the work of the mythological Goddess Kali. All the while, on the inside, you are love, you are peace. And you can offer Love and Peace everywhere in every situation. Tap into your own wellspring of all that is good!

Sunday: We are in the Full Moon aura, warming up for Tuesday's Virgo Full Moon. Leo Moon time begins at 10:21 am ET after about one hour void of course. It's a day of significant squares, which usually indicate challenges and things to be faced. Leo is the sign of courage and strength. Mars and Uranus are fiery planets squaring the fire sign Moon. All may seem amped up, dynamic, and activated. Like all things, this can be felt negatively like confrontation or adversarial, or positively like enthusiasm and high energy. Today's color is Orange, color of creative thinking and collaboration.
Monday: Leo Moon and the Sun moves to Pisces at 6:04 pm ET. Babies born earlier are Aquarius and from 6:04 on are Pisces. Both Leo and Pisces are open hearted signs. Pisces is the more emotional and Leo you might call the generous one. In both personal and public ways we may extend our talents, gifts and blessings to others today. Venus meets Saturn in Capricorn. Relationship agreements and terms come together. The Sun aligns with Uranus for one last blast before moving to Pisces. It's an inspiring and revolutionary aspect intended to change things. I felt that needed bold so you don't skim past it. Uranus is the major planetary player during this late winter time, and about to move to Aries where a retrograde began months ago. Uranus is now direct at the end of Aries, moving in early March during the New Moon. Uranus is also the planet most closely associated with tomorrow's Full Moon. Revolutionary, radically different, alternative, unexpected, breaking paradigms, sometimes breaking all down to be reformed and rethought, those are descriptions of the Uranus effect. Leo Moon aligns with Jupiter to open the mind as well as the heart. Their combined energy is expansive and altruistic. Today's color is Gold.
Tuesday: Full Moon lands on the first degree of Virgo, sign of service to humanity, at 10:54 am ET. The Moon is void in Leo for less than an hour before moving to Virgo at 9:47 am ET. Overnight Mercury and Neptune meet in Pisces (gentle and creative ideas and conversations). Mercury also aligns with Saturn at 9:39 pm ET indicating something will come of the discussions and efforts we put forth now. Decisions are likely and have the qualities of commitment and willingness to contribute in the best ways we know how. Uranus and Mars are the planets most active with Full Moon. Uranus is in Aries, still very fiery and sometimes argumentative (look at the national news and you can see this clearly). Mars is in early degrees of Taurus, strong and persistent. Because of Uranus this Full Moon has a theme of freedom and liberation, moving away from restrictions and outworn ideas. Mars adds a constructive, rebuilding element. Notice what needs to be scrapped and broken down, what is released or what you are released from, and how things begin to take shape again. Virgo Moon has qualities of versatility, productivity, flow, resourcefulness, and willingness to help and offer whatever you can. Today's color is White.
Wednesday: Virgo Moon and a whole variety of aspects today. Full Moon news and business rolls out into the open. Active problem solving is likely. Feelings are present with planets and Sun in Pisces, and doing something to channel them and release stress in favor of helping or giving is healthy. Take care of physical and mental health. Void Moon begins 8:52 pm ET, a good night to do less. Wear Navy Blue.
Thursday: After void time from 8:52 pm ET on Wednesday, the Moon shifts to Libra at 9:17 am ET. The Full Moon is giving way to waning Moon. Watch as it dissolves night by night. Libra Moon generally relates to partnerships and collaborations. Schedule one on one time with someone important to you, either for business or pleasure. Today's color is Pink.
Friday: An active Libra Moon square to 3 planets in Capricorn including Venus. Venus meets Pluto in Capricorn. The planet of relationship, harmony, and sense of beauty encourages you to see the beauty in yourself, to find a sense of peace around something. This may be the result of coming to terms or agreement within yourself or with someone or something else. Deep thoughts and feelings around partnership, roles and relationships are highlighted and arise. Capricorn is a practical sign, so this isn't overly sentimental. It may help some to move on from what has to/had to change. There are a number of squares in the zodiac so there may be big or small sticky points to resolve and figure out. Today's color is Lavender.
Saturday: First, Libra Moon is opposite Uranus in Aries and anything related to this week's Full Moon can be activated and revisited. In relationships, this can lead to big change. Matters of justice, legal proceedings, and progressive changes all play in strongly to this opposition and this week. Void Moon begins with that opposition, at 10:11 am ET. At 10:56 am the Moon moves to Scorpio where there will be harmony with the Pisces Sun and an opposition to Mars. Expect intensity. Mercury is aligned with Pluto. Today looks like a long term decision time, and relates to things that have been in the works for a long while as well. Notice what is revealed, awakened, made public. Today's color is Black.
Mercury moves to Pisces and Mars to Taurus this week. The Moon is waxing toward Full on the 19th, in Virgo.
Sunday: Mercury moves to Pisces. In March we'll have a Mercury retrograde time in Pisces as well. These couple of February weeks are best for taxes, offers on homes, new leases and announcements that won't wait until April. In Pisces, Mercury is flexible and concerned with feelings. Forgiveness may be an open option. Aries Moon meets Mars and Uranus today with an active and wild urge toward the new and toward confronting anger or disharmony. Void Moon 6:48 pm ET to 8:28 pm and then Moon in Taurus. Night hours may be more calm or centered. Today's color is White.
Monday: Taurus Moon aligns with Venus in Capricorn. Some things will fall together smoothly today. Decide and commit. Today can be nice for romance and pleasures. Wear Pink.
Tuesday: Taurus Moon void 5:26 pm ET until 4:32 am on Wednesday. Neptune, Pluto and Saturn align with the Moon from Pisces and Capricorn. Todays aspects helps us get things accomplished. Our color is Green.
Wednesday: Gemini Moon time begins 4:32 am ET. This is a sign of communication, intellect and movement. Mars and Uranus meet in a very unpredictable, dynamic and potentially volatile place, in Aries, as Mars prepares to move on to Taurus. Leaving Mars home sign, this planet says 'my work is done here' and leaves an obvious result or impression. One basic idea here is acting on what's new and moving on. There are many potential effects. Play it cool today and err on the safe side to balance out this strong, powerful conjunction. Today's color is Blue.
Thursday: Gemini Moon. Re-read yesterday's forecast, still in play. Mars also moves on to Taurus at 5:51 am ET. Notice the effect as this planet changes signs after a strong push or urge toward 'something'. This is Valentine's Day, hmmm. It's not the most romantic or harmonious of days as Jupiter is opposing the Moon and Neptune is square. If you have a way with words, maybe you will compose something to get creative energy channeled. There may be nervous anxiety evident in you or others around you. What calms us will be appreciated. Today's color is Light Blue.
Friday: Void Moon 7:48 to 9:03 am ET and then Cancer Moon. Cancer Moon aligns with Mars newly in Taurus. This may have a more settled or settling influence. Stay centered and strong on the home front and with family dynamics. Today's color is White.
Saturday: Full Moon warmup may be felt today. Cancer is the Moon's home sign and today's Moon sign. Full Moon will be in Virgo on Tuesday morning. Structuring family and relationship agreements and plans is one priority. Today's color is Black.

Sunday: Void Moon 5:53 am to 8:03 am ET in Capricorn then the Moon moves into Aquarius, sign of our New Moon at 4:04 pm ET on Monday. Yes it's a New Moon on Monday just like Duran Duran sings! Venus moves into Capricorn today. It's a realistic and solution based sign for the planet of relationships and partnerships. It's more practical than romantic and sometimes that's just what's needed...the real picture, progress and problem solving. Mercury aligns with Jupiter for optimistic news and conversation. Writers may enjoy a burst of inspiration. Today's color is Turquoise.
Monday: New Moon in Aquarius supported by Jupiter. This is a sweet, expansive, progressive, intelligent New Moon. Act on your hopes and visions after 4:04 pm ET and all week long.

The Sun in Aquarius aligns well with Jupiter in Sagittarius for broad and progressive thinking and action. Blend the energies of heart and head. Void Moon 5:14 pm ET until 9:34 am and these hours may bring changes of plan or forgetfulness. Today's color is Purple.
Friday: Aries Moon time starts at 9:34 am ET. Morning may be a bit unreliable or people's availability or mindset may change. Aries Moon squares Venus tonight. Clashes of will or plans are one result. Opinions may come across as strong or offensive. Today's color is Red.
Saturday: Aries Moon square to Saturn in Capricorn and aligns with Jupiter. A mixed effect. Organization and systems is a topic some will deal with. Changes may be announced or implemented. Mercury aligns with Uranus for unanticipated news or things to be resolved. Ideas presented may be revolutionary and radical. Inspiration sparks for some. Today's color is Yellow.

Sunday: Void Moon between 12:21 and 2:31 am ET, which is a more convenient time for void of course Moon since most of us are doing 'less' during those hours. It's geared toward a dreamy sleep and un-doing. Release something as the Moon wanes all this week. Scorpio Moon 4th quarter square to Mercury and the Sun. It looks like a serious discussion and planning day with personal business on the agenda. Wear Maroon.
Monday: Scorpio Moon for a focused, get it done attitude. Saturn, Neptune and Pluto are in harmony with the Moon. Whether you need to use the right brain or left brain today, the planets are on your side. Creative or business-like, organizing or taking apart, it's a good day to make it happen. Void Moon time starts at 5:39 pm and some rest and relaxation may be due or routine tasks taken care of. Wear or meditate with Indigo Blue.
Tuesday: The Moon wanes, yet we had two eclipses this month so the eventfulness continues with a New Moon peak, crossroads, or turning point coming on February 4th. At 9:33 am ET the Moon moves to Sagittarius, a fire sign with a thirst for experiences, knowledge and adventure. The Sun and Mercury meet in Capricorn, bringing news, significant meetings and information. Today's color is Yellow.
Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon with mostly favorable or easy aspects. This is the sign of truths and Mercury, the Sun and Jupiter contribute as you get to the heart and core of something important to you. Neptune adds a square from Pisces. Can we be mutable and willing to entertain different ideas/ideals without losing sight of our true beliefs that we need to stick by? This could be a lucky day! Wear Purple.
Thursday: Sagittarius Moon aligns with Mars and meets Venus. Relationships are today's priority and focus. Love could be exciting and some will have relationship news to share or celebrate. Saturn aligns with Neptune and these planets' influences are entirely different from one another. Taking a dream to reality makes sense as does creative problem solving. You might get some unexpected support or advice. Uranus adds the surprise or wow factor. Void Moon 5:33 to 7:47 pm ET. Today's color is Green.
Friday: New month! New Moon is on Monday in Aquarius. This is a rethinking, reconsideration time. You might want to edit your manuscript, screenplay or other masterpiece. Capricorn Moon. Mars squares Pluto which isn't always comfortable. It's in the name of actively letting go of fear or unworthiness. Encourage your confidence or someone's self worth. Today's color is Black.
Saturday: Capricorn Moon for Groundhog Day. All things Capricorn activate as the Moon meets both Saturn and Pluto. It's likely that many important and life type decisions are pending. Some will commit to a course of action, something very real. Moon squares Mars in Aries. Progress and how to go forward is the question to muddle through. Venus and Uranus bring the relationship element in. Is a major life decision impacting your closest relationships now? The decisions and impact may not be how you expected them to be. This is Venus's last day in Sagittarius and she's going out with a toast to free will! Today's color is Red.
This eclipse is the final of this 2 year series in Aquarius/Leo.

Sunday: The Lunar Eclipse Full Moon is after midnight tonight, so technically it's on Monday where I am though where you are it might be Sunday (Central and Pacific time zones for example). Leo Moon at the very beginning of this sign's 30 degrees. The Sun changes signs, to Aquarius at 4 am ET. Moon moves to Leo at 10:54 pm and is void in Cancer 8:50 pm until then. Emotions and situations are coming to climax and conclusion. Leo is an opmtimistc, expressive sign for this lunar eclipse. Gold is today's color.
Monday: White is today's color. Leo Full Moon with Mars and Venus as a supporting players and Mars square to Saturn. Serious agreements and long haul decisions. Loyalty is very significant wit this eclipse that concludes a 2017- 2019 cycle.
Tuesday: Leo Moon void at 8:19 pm to 10:22 pm ET and then to Virgo. We are still in Full Moon eclipse mode with news and changes, surprising turns of events and aha moments. Venus meets Jupiter in Sagittarius for expanding your mind and perspective and themes of freedom prevail. Today's color is Indigo.
Wednesday: Virgo Moon. The Moon begins to wane and getting back to routine could feel good or necessary. If you're getting ahead of yourself, take a step back. Feel grounded in your day. Use your mind and hands and body to feel present. Avoid running from the issue, if there is one. Today's color is Brown.
Thursday: Virgo to Libra Moon. Th shift is at 11:02 pm ET. Void of course Moon is 8:50 am ET and all the hours between. Check your calendar and know where you need to be. Take care of routine tasks and make sure to double check or remind anything that could be forgotten. Like the stove and candles...make sure they are off or extinguished before you move on. Mercury moves to Aquarius at 12:49 am ET and when Mercury moves it's a good plan for us to pause and notice rather than rush into things. Today's color is Lavender.
Friday: Libra Moon. Mars trine Jupiter in fire signs Aries and Sagittarius. Some things may go very easily and harmoniously today. It might be a fortunate day to reach out for what you want and take action on important matters. Orange is today's color.
Saturday: Libra Moon opposite Mars and in harmony with Venus. Relationship focus. Today's color is Pink.
This week the Moon is waxing toward a January 21st Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Leo. It's the final eclipse of the Leo/Aquarius cycle over the last two years.
Sunday: Aries Moon and we're about halfway to full so this is go time in many situations. Aries is the initiator and activator. The tension of squares including Jupiter square to Neptune means lots to work through. Notice what you really need to push for because it's right or necessary. Choose words and supporting facts well and in advance if someone needs to be convinced. You'll put in effort for what you accomplish today and tomorrow. Jupiter is Sagittarius is standing by with the yes and the inspiration required. Mercury and Saturn meet in Capricorn. This will not be a lazy Sunday and may not be a funday either. Focus on what needs to be done and agreed to. Today's color is Yellow.
Monday: 2nd quarter Moon 1:48 am. Halfway between two eclipses, the Moon grows in light. Moon meets Uranus fresh off the retrograde, at 10:56 am ET and is then void of course. The wow factor and in some cases, a change in the plan. It could set you off balance at first. Void Moon is from then until Taurus Moon time starts at 1:31 pm ET. Taurus Moon sign is for loyalty and persistence as well as enjoying the good things in life. If success is yours, celebrate with cake or something that satisfies you as much. Cake baking is a Taurus Moon type activity. Mercury aligns with Neptune for a creative way with words, music and self expression or acting. Today's color is Blue.
Tuesday: Taurus Moon. Think longevity, commitment, and actions to back your words. Similar to Monday, the Moon aligns with Saturn, Mercury and Neptune. Today's color is Green.
Wednesday: Taurus Moon until 8 pm ET with a void of course Moon from 1:34 til then. Those hours in between 1:30 and 8 can be considered unreliable for important business and a better time to exercise or relax. Do the easiest tasks in that afternoon time. Save the complex for another day unless you're done by 1:30 pm (or your time zone adjustment ie 10:30 am Pacific). Gemini Moon for a social evening out or study time. Today's color is Gold.
Thursday: Gemini Moon opposite Venus, in harmony with Mars, feels like chemistry between people, either for friendship or romance. It's likely to create flirtatious and charming vibes. The Moon is also opposing Jupiter and square to Neptune and Gemini is kind of a shapeshifter of a sign, indicating duality, so be cautious and reasonable about with whom and where you put your trust. Today's color is Pink.
Friday: Gemini to Cancer Moon 10:44 pm ET and the void of course time begins at 8:32 pm ET. So there's all day for business, negotiations, homework and writing as well as editing. We are getting closer to Full Moon and this may be the day to get lots done on a project or prepare for something else due soon. Venus and Mars are in harmony for dates, personal communication, and excitement about new love interests. The Sun square to Uranus and also Mercury and Pluto meeting also put significant business on the agenda today, and outcomes may surprise everyone involved. Today's color is White.
Saturday: We're back in the Full Moon and also the eclipse zone. Intensity builds and in some cases the news or strong foreshadow of events coming right up are evident now. Full Moon is Sunday overnight into Monday. It's a wild and conclusive Leo Lunar eclipse, also powerful for Aquarius, sign of the Sun as of 4 am Sunday. Squares and oppositions indicate a Lot going on this weekend, and much to be worked out or responded to. Leo Moon begins at 10:54 pm ET Sunday night. Today, Cancer Moon and Capricorn Sun all of Saturday. We are likely to be protective of our closest people and our own best interests. Mars and Saturn are in some disagreement with the Moon so for some it'll be struggle or frustration in action. Today's color is Blue.
Quick rundown of the planets right now: Mercury in Capricorn: think planning, sorting, leading, administrating until the 24th Venus in Sagittarius starts January 7th: freedom, beauty, open to possibilities, inspiration, travels Mars in Aries: Fired up, action oriented, physical attractions, everything new Jupiter in Sagittarius: continuation of the 13 month period of Jupiter in his own sign emphasizing free thinking, opening minds, global awareness and community, higher education for the good of all Saturn in Capricorn: continuation of two years also in her home sign of leadership, careers, public life, growing up, facing what you own Uranus newly direct in Aries: a final burst for this changeable, rebellious planet in the first sign for rebirths and destroying to recreate Neptune in Pisces: been hanging out there a long while. Also the home sign of Neptune, dreams and imagination, and on the downside, escapism and sometimes addiction/substance abuse. This is a lot of planets in their home signs at once. Each is strengthened while in their sign. Pluto in Capricorn: a long tour for the planet of secrets, undercurrents, our innermost dreams and fears
Solar Eclipse in Capricorn with New Moon was Saturday, the 5th Lunar Eclipse in Leo for significant and long haul closure and conclusions at Full Moon on the 21st/20th depending on time zone.
Sunday: Uranus direct in Aries 3:27 pm ET. Uranus action can feel similar to an eclipse so the changes and unanticipated news and situations keep rolling like waves. Moon square Uranus and meeting Pluto in Capricorn. Kind of an intense Sunday. Realize many people are dealing with big things, some are unsettling, some inspiring and exciting. Today's color is Blue.
Monday: From 1:20 to 1:46 am ET the Moon lingers void of course in Capricorn, then to Aquarius until Wednesday afternoon. With Uranus in Aries now, and the Moon aligned with Venus and Mars, post New Moon eclipse, we'll see a lot of action on things. Aquarius Moon is for connecting with others who share your intellect and forming groups around a mission or project. Venus shifts to Sagittarius for a more free and open experience of relationship or single-hood. We'll tend to see the beauty and attractiveness of new and interesting people and places. Today's color is Turquoise.
Tuesday: Aquarius Moon in harmony with expansive and magnificent Jupiter for luck and the gift of an objective perspective. Notice truths as they become clear. Mercury square to Mars may be difficult if you're competing or dealing with an adversary. Today's color is Red.
Wednesday: Aquarius to Pisces Moon, with void time from 11:53 am to 2:44 pm ET. Those middle hours are best for routine. On either side, significant decisions may be made as we continue to feel the effects and know the implications of last Saturday's solar eclipse. Morning is better for intellectual work and later day and evening for connecting with a friend or someone who needs your support or vice versa. Moon in harmony with Uranus and later square to Venus. Some will feel their feelings deeply and struggle with sadness or loss if that's been the case. Today's color is Green.
Thursday: Pisces Moon with aspects to 4 different planets, 4 different types of energy. Some will do serious, meaningful work today and some will daydream or run from responsibilities. The challenge is to remain focused and realistic. Today's color is Light Blue.
Friday: Pisces Moon void of course time begins at 9:25 am until 3:18 am ET on Saturday. Quite the spacey time, yet there could be a good flow and maybe an ability to relax rather than become urgent or anxious. The Sun meets Pluto and the Moon is sextile to Pluto, planet of the hidden and unspoken. Secrets and plans may be revealed, some likely on the corporate level and in other workplaces. Changes in leadership can occur with such activity in Capricorn. Acknowledge your true feelings as you move through whatever is happening. What we hide away eventually has to resurface and that could come today. Our color is Black.
Saturday: Aries Moon starts at 3:18 am ET and meets Mars in the evening for a huge burst of Aries' energy. This is the stuff of newness, action, forward thinking, and sometimes fuels arguments or disputes over who is right or ought to be in charge. Notice what inspires and magnetizes for you. Today's color is Red.
2019 bursts with activity and change as the first New Moon is also a Solar Eclipse in Capricorn on Saturday, January 5th. The Lunar Eclipse follows in two weeks, in the sign Leo. Eclipses are known for quickness, the wow factor, "didn't see that coming" at least not now, and people coming and going from our daily lives.
The Moon is waning toward the first eclipse and New Moon.
Sunday: The Libra Moon opposes Uranus for a surprising or tumultuous effect. A rocky relationship or unexpected bit of news may require a calm, collected response or perhaps surrender into doing nothing as 'whatever it is' takes shape. Libra Moon void from 5:53 to 8:23 pm ET. Scorpio Moon for the rest of the day/night. Scorpio Moon may create strong waves of any type of emotion. Be a little bit protective of your self, your privacy and your feelings as needed. Today's color is Indigo.
Monday: Scorpio Moon ranges from sentimental to romantic or passionate for New Years' Eve and the last day of 2018. Honor your feelings, and in particular if you feel like being alone or quiet, don't push yourself to be festive or social. We'll experience this a bit differently depending how the signs Capricorn and Scorpio resonate in our charts. Sun and Saturn in Scorpio are in harmony with the Moon. Some will make serious life decisions today, and the aspects help those decisions stick. Mars moves into Aries, home sign for the warrior and activating planet. Today's color is Black.
Tuesday: Scorpio Moon aligns with Pluto and meets Venus, putting relationships in the forefront today. It's natural to review or reflect on relationships, current status, willingness to be open to relationship or fears around intimacy. This can be an intimate and romantic time. Void of course Moon from 5:26 pm to 3:58 am ET. Today's color is Maroon.
Wednesday: Sagittarius Moon time begins and the Moon is waning toward New. We have an eclipse on Saturday and by tonight some of the news or effects could take place. The Sun meets Saturn in a very down to earth, committed, intentional conjunction. You could be asked for a definite answer. Also, it's an aspect for honoring our elders and seeking wise counsel. Today's color is Purple.
Thursday: Sag Moon meets Jupiter for broadening and inspiring. Release limiting beliefs or situations in favor of what frees your mind or opens your options. The Moon square to Neptune in mutable signs challenges us to use imagination and believe in magic without losing our sense of reality. Avoid escapism, but have faith in things you cannot see or prove, as that seems appropriate to you. Today's color is Light Blue.
Friday: Short void of course Moon (which is like a transition time, something like waiting in a line for us humans) from 12:41 to 1:55 pm in Sagittarius, then the Moon will be in Capricorn, sign of our solar eclipse tomorrow. This is a very transitional sort of day. It might be worthwhile to pause and proceed slowly for the moment as much could change drastically or in an unusual way now or within the month. Mercury's final move in Sagittarius is a trine to Uranus, the wild card planet. News may take you off guard or someone may show up or get in touch quite unexpectedly, potentially changing your focus or experience. Uranus is retrograde so the resonance of the past is part of the deal. Has this situation shocked or taken you off guard before? Do you want to respond differently now or welcome the chaos or other turn of events? Mercury moves into Capricorn for a few weeks, at 10:40 pm ET. It's a get your act together sort of feeling while Mercury, Saturn, the Sun and Pluto all gather in this no nonsense, get the job done type sign. Today's color is Yellow.
Saturday: Solar Eclipse always comes with a New Moon. This occurs at 8:28 pm ET. Today's Capricorn Moon and Sun meet, in touch with Saturn, not far from Pluto, and aligned with Neptune. Even if this is a big reality check, there are some favorable vibrations for committing, facing fears, regaining sanity, and taking action that's much needed. Today's color is White.
From Lousie Hay's wisdom cards, I randomly drew a piece of wisdom that may apply to you and all of us: “I am open and receptive to new avenues of income.” “I now receive my good from expected and unexpected sources.” “I am an unlimited being accepting from an unlimited source in anunlimited way.”
I looked further into her wisdom about abundance and found:
THE MORE GRATEFUL I AM FOR THE WEALTH AND ABUNDANCE IN MY LIFE, THE MORE REASONS I FIND TO BE GRATEFUL.
I EXPRESS GRATITUDE FOR ALL THE GOOD IN MY LIFE. EACH DAY BRINGS WONDERFUL NEW SURPRISES.
I PAY MY BILLS WITH LOVE, AND I REJOICE AS I WRITE OUT EACH CHECK. ABUNDANCE FLOWS FREELY THROUGH ME.
AT THIS VERY MOMENT, ENORMOUS WEALTH AND POWER ARE AVAILABLE TO ME. I CHOOSE TO FEEL WORTHY AND DESERVING.
I DESERVE THE BEST, AND I ACCEPT THE BEST NOW.
I RELEASE ALL RESISTANCE TO MONEY, AND I NOW ALLOW IT TO FLOW JOYOUSLY INTO MY LIFE.
MY GOOD COMES FROM EVERYWHERE AND EVERYONE.
Capricorn is a sign of prosperity, abundance, property and the element of earth. Happy New Moon in Capricorn, my friends! Trust in your ability to manifest.

Sunday: Cancer Moon with two oppositions (which add emphasis and can be conflicting) and two trines which are harmonious or bring ease. The serious discussions and news are mixed with romantic and forgiving vibes. Consider the Moon still Full. Today's color is Light Blue.
Monday: Cancer to Leo Moon at 11:59 am ET. Moon void before then for an hour and ten minutes. Leo Moon is joyful, festive and grounded. Hold steady and optimistic as Uranus aspects the Moon and can bring unexpected surprises or changes. Mercury square Neptune in Sag/Pisces, the mutable signs on Christmas Eve. Practice forgiveness.

Wednesday: Leo to Virgo Moon 12:50 pm ET. Void of course Moon is 10:37 am to 12:50 ET. These shorter void Moons can help things run more smoothly and clearly. The Moon trine to Uranus and the Sun rises inner fire and motivation. Being active or productive makes sense. Reorganize and clean. Today's color is Brown.
Thursday: Virgo Moon engaged with 6 different planets, 6 different types of connection. Expect variety. Wear Navy Blue.
Friday: Virgo to Libra Moon 3:23 pm ET, and void of course from 11:27 am until then. A good day to relax, not plan too much, and find some spontaneity.

Saturday: Fourth quarter Moon waning in Libra. Perhaps you can take an impartial point of view or step back from a conflict or misunderstanding in favor of peace. Moon aligns with Jupiter for adventures with best friends and lovers. Find a buddy and enjoy lightheartedness. Today's color is Pink.

Sunday: Aries Moon. Venus and the Moon are in contact with Saturn, planet of discipline and responsibility. Venus and the Moon relate to emotions and relationships. Some will settle personal business and finalize decisions regarding relationship, partnership and the way things will be going forward. Today's color is Orange.
Monday: Aries Moon, and Aries ruling planet Mars acts with Pluto. Facing fears and acting courageously and from a place of great wisdom is favored. Themes of rebirth and a continuation of Sunday's forecast are relevant. Moon and Sun in harmony provide some fire energy and optimism or sense of adventure even if there's a melancholy undertone. Today's color is Maroon.
Tuesday: Void Moon time 2:21 to 4:37 am ET, then the Moon is in earth sign Taurus. Hands on work, the to do list, shopping and other financial dealings and acquisitions are helped along by Saturn in Capricorn. It's a day to get real and move on things, considering the long term. Today's color is Green.
Wednesday: Taurus Moon, void from ET 7:42 pm on, and the Full Moon warms up for Saturday. Taurus Moon opposes Venus for the partnership terms that need to be established and adhered to. There could be a loving, romantic quality to this or it could be that very serious agreements need to be made. Moon aligns with Neptune, Pluto and Mars also. Whatever you're doing today, there's depth and long lasting effects. In the evening, chill and find the comfort zone. Wear Pink.
Thursday: The Moon moves to Gemini for what may feel like a quick interlude and burst of social energy and business transactions before Full Moon and Christmas holiday. Gemini Moon 9:34 am ET partway into Saturday. Full Moon in Cancer is on Saturday at 12:49 pm ET. People may be rushed, busy, and scattered in focus or priorities. For that reason, try and slow down to avoid anything unintended or due to not paying attention, especially on your commutes for the rest of the week. Family pulls are strong. Gemini is the sign of your sibling relationships. The Sagittarius Sun and Uranus retrograde in Aries are the fire fed by Gemini Moon's air element and this can be dynamic, combustible, and wildly surprising. Today's color is Yellow.
Friday: Gemini Moon. Today is the Solstice as the Sun moves to Capricorn at 5:23 pm ET. We have the fewest hours and minutes of daylight. Many aspects today include Venus and Neptune aligned for romance and love. There's also indication of important developments, perhaps globally with Jupiter involved. Jupiter meets Mercury and opposes this almost Full Moon, and major discussions, agreements, plans for growth and big Sagittarius type action is spotlighted. Today's color is Blue.
Saturday: The Moon is Full in Cancer, sign of home and family, at 12:49 pm ET. Family news is likely. Mars and Uranus, both action oriented and quick acting planets, are in line with the Moon. Take good care of each other today. Not only with emotions be running high, but other external (maybe US or world) developments may be happening fast and in the forefront as we approach Christmas and new years. We are in eclipse season now, with the next New and Full Moons of January being solar and lunar eclipses, heralding major changes. Foreshadows and precursors and the topics or themes of interest arise now. Today's color is White.
Friday evening, December 21st 6-7 pm, our monthly Yoga Nidra at Greener Postures Yoga studio in South Portland. It's a usual drop in rte and you don't need to sign up in advance, just come. Wear comfy clothing. This is a practice of REST. How nice that it falls on the longest night of the year, and one day away from Full Moon. This could be the ideal time to try Yoga Nidra for the first time, in a safe welcoming space.
