The Moon Gate





 

Clouds come from time to time
and bring man a chance to rest
from looking at the moon
Matsuo Basho
1644-1694




The Moon
 spell of enchantment

 Mystics, Shaman,
Druids, Priests,
 pay homage

The Devoted,
 the Holy, The Divine
bask in the illumination

The glow casts light
 on human darkness

emotions, secrets, and fear

Stumbling
on the shadowed journey

clues revealing


Standing
within the Moon's shimmer
Dream those dreams
 seek the guidance
of our Ancestors,
 the Holy and Beloveds
 they came before us
 Bless the humans
who help
and support us in our everyday lives
 Be bathed in
luminous ethereal beauty
 Value your life
whatever truth may be
 we know it's to live
 in wonder of such beauty
 unto itself

Full Wolf Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

 Full Wolf Moon (English Medieval) at 18* Cancer will culminate Jan 08, 2012 11:32pm pst/Jan 09, 2:32pm est (almanac).

This Wolf Full Moon is about our home lives and how to generate more personal awareness. You’d think it would be a time of getting back on track in the work force after the holiday time, but no, there have been plenty of full moons suggesting getting on track with career and security. January the time of winter usually establishes time indoors with those around us, and proposes a period of reconnection. These slower months also become a juncture of discernment and introspection, such as how to we manage time and relationships. Do we feel good about the people we spend time with, as often we find that familiarity does not mean closeness. We can sometimes ignore those in our vicinity, not showing enough appreciation or recognition. With the divorce rate high, the depression out of control we can only reflect that somewhere something is going wrong with how we are communicating or treating each other. Where are we not staying conscious…

I wouldn’t start communicating just yet, as we need to identify what is lacking in deeper introspection. What are the “feelings” deficiencies within you, are you too sensitive or not sensitive enough. Why are things not as they should be. What is causing any disparagement, and what can be done to change any of it. Your quirks can be pointed out by someone else, but that news comes from someone else’s perspective of your needs. Your inner voice of reason can point you in a calmer, more sensible direction. A fix could be as simple as managing time a little differently. Who do you want to converse with, and who is important to build better tolerance. Who do you choose for true intimacy. Lack of seriousness leads to negligence, and too much seriousness leads to fear. And if you’re taking other people’s feelings for granted, yours are probably being stepped on too.

Taking time to bond with a spouse, lover, parents, children, relatives and friends formulates an understanding as an effort to attain honesty and integrity. Try not to be a ho-hum listener, your life experience can be fulfilling when making personal associations flourish, accrediting positive traits of people instead of the negative. Alternating time and boundaries is important, it’s not about measuring the quantity of time but the quality of experience. Whether you know it or not, you are a piece in the puzzle of your generation. You may not think you are doing much to influence others around you other than giving your thoughts and perspective. You could be just a good example of pulling your own weight in your job or home life. The observance of your actions is sometimes much louder than words. Your descendants and friend’s descendants will carry out the past through the filter of their ideals, dreams and data.

As a species, we’re an ongoing project, and what we do or don’t do is recorded by our soul blueprints and by the populace. It’s important to interact with our intimates and relations. To perk up your outlook doesn’t take much effort when tuning in to others when they are speaking. Make it an exercise for yourself of trying to take notice on many levels instead of being half asleep within you. Forming significance in your words, thoughts and deeds, small gestures of goodwill, a hug, helping with a chore to taking time to communicate with those close to you goes a longer way then we ever think at the time. The truth of the matter is that encouraging others and recognizing their lifeforce allows our spirits to shine. There is an energy exchange of goodwill that doesn’t come from anything other than nurturing. When we take the time to champion those around us, we’re allowed to take steps for ourselves.

 

Quote:

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain.”~Jim Morrison (American Poet and Singer. Member of the American band The Doors and one of rock music's mythic figures. 1943-1971)

Full Beaver Moon and 11.11.11
By Tara Sutphen

 Full Beaver Moon (Native American) at 18* Taurus will culminate November 10, 2011 12:18pm pst/3:18pm est (almanac).

This Full Moon is an occasion of stepping into the benefits of the world around you, especially as the moon will be beaming down on 11.11.11.  A gateway of stimulus, and fortunate epoch of beneficence, insight and magnetism, it's as though the heavens know when we need an extra dose of optimism and therefore decides it’s time to illuminate the dark states we often find ourselves in.  As many are pushed to the limits of late and aim to find a reprieve and recover. We want to settle in to effortless thinking and living, creating more comfort in the home and environment. Concentrating on resolving household/workload drama and dilemmas, while seeking harmony and contentment, like a cat finding a sunny spot to laze in. Our personal worlds and the earth have been in a morass of confusion and this moon sets the tone of wanting to settle in and enjoy life again. What’s all the hoopla...simple pleasures are “where it’s at”, for a few hours here or there anyway. When meditating on the moon, it’s a soothing time all about being comfortable and release what is confusing, symbiotic or sporadic in your personal space.


This moon is a perfect prelude to the next day where you’ll be expected to raise your vibrational frequency through an 11.11.11 portal, a spiritual Stargate. What this means for ‘everyone’ is elevating mindful perceptions, it’s more than just saying grateful things, you’ll actually have to make an effort toward being constructive to healthier modes and methods of living.  There is conscious reasoning with each word, deed and action. Whether you believe this celestial threshold is metaphor or reality, it’s a potential for redirection to gain clear goals and reach peaceful ease. Where is that glint of energy that makes life uncomplicated. Are you out of alignment, is your health on track or slightly poor, is your love on track or humbly defective, is your money on track or deficient. Why are you settling for less. Where does it say in your personal rule manual that you can’t succeed in everything the earth would like to gift you.  You actually have clues on what to do to begin these healing journeys. Everyone has these self talks, we’re going to eat better, exercise more, choose people consciously but for some reason or another, find ourselves day after day in crossroads.  It’s time to drop all that lack of enthusiasm as it won’t get us anywhere. Sorce for your intentions and goals. Take a breath, meditate during the full moon and on 11.11.11.
 
Journal Questions:


What to do, What to do... 10 sentences – What are you going to do?
What were your self talks
• Love
• Health
• Money
If you meditated on the full moon – What conclusions did you come to...what makes your life comfortable.
List 10 comfortable things:
• People, places, things
List 10 uncomfortable things:
• People, places, things

How self satisfied are you
When you do things for others, how do you feel
When you do things to better your life, how do you feel
11.11.11
What is the Stargate to you
How will it enhance your life
What did you think about during your meditation
Did you consciously try and raise your vibrational energy


It takes determination to find the durable senses to help achieve change for the better. You may need to fall asleep listening to hypnosis programs or exercise the body to relieve emotional and intellectual tension.  Meditations and Mind programming are helpful in uncovering a need to open channels for brainpower and awareness. Modifying the mind, relieves long-established patterns to refresh and renew expectations and enterprising actions.  However you see your life, we are organic beings needing readjustments from time to time. When we are in balance with the life force we are in control of our destiny.

Meditation & Sleep Programming
 
  By Tara Sutphen
 
 
Although you would ideally do this meditation outside
  beneath the full moon, you can also experience it by imagining the moon and
  four directions as you are surrounded with magical energy ... a rainbow of
  light. In the Goddess’ name you open to the light. You can actually stand up
  and raise your palms to the sky or imagine this process of being energized
  and rejuvenated. Facing North you ask for solutions to your problems and
  experience many blessings. Facing East you seek solutions and prosperity
  while trusting yourself to make the right choices. Following many blessings,
  you turn to the South and ask for increased self-esteem and harmonious
  relationships with the people in your life. After the blessings, you turn to
  the West to face your destiny and ultimate potentials. Open your mind and
  release your courage. The ritual ends with the moon as your guiding light on the
  shadowed path. It illuminates your dreams as you walk steadfast and proceed
  on your earthy journey with an open heart.
 
 
Track 2:
  A beautiful sleep programming version of the ritual. Listen as your cross
  over into sleep and explore the four directions into your dreams.

Full Hunters Moon
By Tara Sutphen

Full Hunters Moon (Native American) at 18* Aries
will culminate October 11, 2011 7:06pm pdt/10:06pm edt (almanac).

This Full Moon is a time of stepping into your surroundings and environment with nothing to be ashamed of, whatever lessons you’ve learned in the past, you will now use as a navigation tool for your future. You may be going through a bevy of ideas from moving to a foreign country, relocating to another city, turmoil over physical health, friendship betrayals, confusion of love, being awash with general frustration and anxiousness, scrambling to win the lotto, crash dieting or establishing your own business to beat money worries and the list of issues and problems go on and on…

What if we stop beating ourselves up and really move to the next stage. How about leaving our fears behind as it’s not getting anyone anywhere. There is a perpetuation of challenge and competitiveness but when becoming afraid, uncertainty and misunderstandings arise and let’s face it when terrified, we become zombies. And society and the press create concerns, more disturbances than we can consciously perceive. We want to be informed, yet we know that people were perfectly fine back in the olden days. And we love our modern society and the gifts that enterprise has brought us. Although we need to really work toward the best interest of our families and ourselves, mindful of our choice and knowing what is important. Becoming individually strong to help our self and those we love.

In what areas of your life are you strengthening yourself?

Business: When configuring to go to the next level, that means up not down and to configure what we need for our personal wellbeing. Are you being proactive, or silently or not so noiselessly crying out to have someone save you. With 7 billion people on the planet, you are not alone and there are people to come help if we ask. We can sorce and pray our request, or we can inquire with our voice. If it isn’t money, it’s a trade. There are always solutions to all problems. Be enterprising and resourceful, you never know where your ideas could manifest into real tangible assistance and improvement. And with an existing job or business, there are ways to progress and change. Keep moving solidly forward.
Love: Living in positive reception of others shines back on you, the whole Spectrum of Love – Lovers, Family and Friends. Being in support of and doing things for others set’s significance in your heart and meaning into their heart. Live your expectations of love and friendship. Love does not need to be complicated.
Health: Time to recover. How can you be most gentle upon yourself. Do you need to eat better, exercise a little, be happier and less stressed out. Life is choices, you can eat fast food or eat for the same dollar amount, a pot of rice and beans with a vegetable. Who needs a gym when you have your legs to walk with and a towel to throw on the floor for some temperate stretching and body movement, and — you can do a five minute meditation to free your mind.
Clear Mind: You know what to do, those past mistakes teach us all what not to do. Wrong steps were signs to change, you now can start moving to the next stage. Meditate and come to an evaluation if you are fighting or flowing in your life. Switch to flow. Your energy field and your every day life will start to clear.
As you gaze at the Full Aries Moon, know you are to step into your personal power. It was not an accident that you are born of this era, you have a purpose and offerings. Cast intent on awakening.

Full Dog Day’s Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
Full Dog Day’s Moon (colonial) at 20* Aquarius will culminate August 13, 2011 11:57am pdt/ 2:57pm edt  (almanac). This Full Moon is an opportunity to be open and trust your future. No more pessimism or “I can’t”. You are born of the earth and your two feet are on the ground…start walking your talk and talking your walk. Life is meant to be lived. We go through blocks and sour people along our way, and it’s time to stop letting them knock you down. Get up, brush off and start moving forward.

How bad do problems have to get before concentrated effort  of changing what you can. And if you can’t transform people or your circumstances, where do you make adjustments for you. What has to happen before you make a distinction of people, jobs, and behaviors. What feedback do you need. Are you staying in relationships and jobs that are only tolerable or satisfactory.  Is the unrest with you, the circumstances or the job? Sometimes situations seem irredeemable. Do you fix it or let it go.

If you aren’t examining your reactions, and you find yourself anxious or frustrated, you could be letting life happen to you, instead of making the power of a choice.  Living life a lot of the time feels like a pretend atmosphere. We have to work at keeping life “real”. Set up a list of your ideas and ideals. See if they are close to what you are living and experiencing and if not, you’ll need to adjust to feel more in control and less stuck with unfinished business. Start living a more suitable life. In the light of the moon you have a brighter vision of your tomorrow. You are actively seeking to bring yourself to a high prospective and living life to your fullest potential.

July-thunder-moon-72





















Full Thunder Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 Full Thunder Moon at 22* Capricorn will culminate July 14, 2011 11:39pm pdt/ July 15, 2011 2:39am edt  (almanac). This Full Moon is an opportunity to evaluate your highest potential through your work or best job and to move in that direction. In the light of the moon you have a brighter vision of your tomorrow. You are actively seeking to bring yourself to a high prospective, trusting a solid course can be attained. How realistic has your work ethic been so far. Are you falling into jobs or set out to attain them. What are your skills and talent. And don’t say you don’t have any, as everyone is a unique individual and has many attributes even if you hide or don’t acknowledge them. You may not know how to move your life into how you want it to be. There are those jobs that are extraordinary such as a CEO, an Actor or another job clouded by societies view of glamour, but they began with a seed of an idea. When you come back to your innate self, simple pleasures are always the best. The way food tastes, flowers, trees, clouds in the sky, petting an animal. As an example, Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream came about because someone liked ice cream and decided to share their concoctions, a woman in South Africa liked to garden and now delivers wheat grass to many stores.  All ideas and desires start as miniscule daydreams. And even if we act on our dreams, does it assure us of winning, well no. But if we never try, then we have a life that we longed for and didn’t generate. Creation, it is ours.  And maybe this life isn’t about focusing on refuge and collateral, it may possibly be about trying to gain love and relationships, making them right in some way. To appreciate those in your family relations and who you’ve chosen to love. Although shelter and security are necessary, and there are jobs within your range of interest, you may not have the full range of work skill but you can certainly try.   It may not be tomorrow that you land your perfect job or place in the world, but the path lies before you and it’s time for the change that suits you best.

 

We long for our lives to be better overnight, but it’s an ongoing process. We must face the highs and lows, you deserve the very best. What are you waiting for………

9* Cancer New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

9* Cancer New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating July 1, 2011. The New Moon comes with a partial lunar eclipse, a time to leave behind grudges or bad habits. This Cancer New Moon is about coming back into the family fold, whether it is your family or family of friends. You are to figure out how you proceed and where you belong. You can start with your gut level reactions to the people surrounding you. Are you feeling content or unsatisfied. Is it you or them. Are they out of control emotionally or physically or is it you. We long to be with people who enrich our life experience. We don’t know where it comes from or why, but we come together with others that either give us the innate kindness and nourishment we crave or we are tested to our limits. Did we make a choice on the other side before we are born…at times we can hardly think so. As we have to face it, it is best when we are honest with ourselves and make the choice to have what we want instead of what we need. And sometimes what we think we want doesn’t serve our lives. There is a base logic that comes with our reality of food and shelter. And most of the time we have this emotional structure that tends to whirl our senses in “karmic khemistry”. We get caught up psychologically instead of reasonably.
Whether in love or in fighting, we have different levels of being in enamored bliss or disdain. Why do we have to experience situations, people, places and events, but we fall right into them. Not being able to avoid what we would rather never experience. Yet, the people we adore, it is heaven. Now is the time to stop stumbling on managing your life. Let go with what doesn’t work for you, and if you can’t then learn the reasons why and apply them to your grace and wisdom. There is a right way to manifest and a wrong way to handle situations and people. Many people make desperate choices, or over-react. The way to gain a steady life is making wise decisions and carefully selecting people, places and things. If your having a hard time and people aren’t being kind, know you are being given road signs and sometimes the only way to change is when the neon sign is blinking before you. Allow your life to be graceful.

We come together with those who help us learn and grow. Not always ‘easy street’. Our biggest challenge will be overreacting to anyone or anything. Love begins with you. Peace begins with you. Courage begins with you.
“I don't know if I continue, even today, always liking myself. But what I learned to do many years ago was to forgive myself. It is very important for every human being to forgive herself or himself because if you live, you will make mistakes- it is inevitable. But once you do and you see the mistake, then you forgive yourself and say, 'well, if I'd known better I'd have done better,' that's all. So you say to people who you think you may have injured, 'I'm sorry,' and then you say to yourself, 'I'm sorry.' If we all hold on to the mistake, we can't see our own glory in the mirror because we have the mistake between our faces and the mirror; we can't see what we're capable of being. You can ask forgiveness of others, but in the end the real forgiveness is in one's own self. I think that young men and women are so caught by the way they see themselves. Now mind you. When a larger society sees them as unattractive, as threats, as too black or too white or too poor or too fat or too thin or too sexual or too asexual, that's rough. But you can overcome that. The real difficulty is to overcome how you think about yourself. If we don't have that we never grow, we never learn, and sure as hell we should never teach.” ~Maya Angelou quotes (American Poet, b.1928)

Full Moon of Horses
By Tara Sutphen
 
Full Moon of Horses at 24* Sagittarius will culminate June 15, 2011 1:13pm pdt/4:13pm edt  (almanac) with a Total Eclipse. This Full Moon called by its Celtic name – “Moon of Horses” is an opportunity to evaluate how you handle your emotions and the extremes you find yourself at times. With the moon comes a most powerful time of the earth’s seas being moved by the gravitational pull of the earth and with a total eclipse, you may be feeling even more restless or sensitive. Usually aspects take you off of your demonstrative nature. But not this full moon, it’s set in the fixed star Aculeus, thus setting the aspect in the Scorpion’s tail. The unrest may be drumming up unfinished business in the most peaceful of people. Where do things go amiss and where do things go correctly. Decisions, have they been right or wrong. Are you using your personal power or mismanaging it. Do you even express what you deem influence and potential.  Are you capable of so much more and unable to crest your energy to activate skill and talent. You can’t have talent unless you make the effort to risk and try.

Everyone has a rage level, we were born with it and must learn to manage it. Although for some reason many people don’t handle anger correctly at the time and a morass of confusion precipitates. Inferiority, resentment, irritation can go on for some time before we are willing to look at what doesn’t create an environment to thrive. Are you assertive and confident or having aggressive tendencies. Aggression is when you find your-self yelling at others aimlessly, becoming insistent, and uncompromising and with passive behavior locked emotionally away in an imprisoned set of rules and agony.  How can we use defeat to further ourselves as we bumbe ahead, clumsily allowing our lives to be perplexed and sometimes it’s hurtful, if not slowly or unwittingly destroying ours or others lives.  Where does insight begin, and does it make or break us.

A first thought would be to start making ourselves strong in body. When we feel good, generally we are confident. We have the wit to say yes and no to good or bad. As we regain a course of action, focus on a target and add intensity, these can be used as a tool toward a direction. Sounds easy, putting it into action is always the test…as we can dream and talk, talk and talk more. We can make a conscious decision to use an upset as a ‘road sign’ to move in another direction, this can give movement to actions and reactions, bringing greater circumstances into a personal sphere. You take the high road or low road…it’s that simple.

Deliberation is the banal of focus and to create a life of vivid beauty we must put up with some degree of disdain and unruliness. This does not bode well for all who seek peace and gentleness, but even in nature there must be a yin to the yang. To become one with ourselves we must accept all the facets of our innate fear and shadows, for to cast light on them will bring us out of darkness.
 
“The only justice is to follow the sincere intuition of the soul, angry or gentle. Anger is just, and pity is just, but judgment is never just.” ~D.H. Lawrence quotes (British Poet, Novelist and Essayist, 1885-1930)

Full Flower Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
The Flower Moon is at 26* Scorpio will culminate May 17, 2011 4:08pm pst/ 8:08pm est (almanac). This Full Moon is an opportunity to evaluate how you create resources through your job.  Have you been effective as well as productive. Can you  bring into position your values with making money, your principles may need to match your ideology. Believing in yourself and attaching importance to your career creates a valuable lifestyle.  It’s easy to tolerate a passable job. Majority of people get by with not thinking life is too bad, ending up with living in places they didn’t want to be and in jobs that run them ragged, knowing if they really thought it out, they could come to a conclusion of where is it all going. When you act in self interest logically and sensibly you can move your life into what you want in every aspect. It’s not about packing your bags and immediately moving randomly without plans, it’s time to get those tactics in place and then progress.
How is clarity found - First of all, what is not working, sometimes we can differentiate what is wrong before we recognize what is effective, useful and helpful. There are many signs that give us indications that it’s time for a change or to elevate status and/or education. These signals can be an unpleasant boss or co-worker, money is sparse, heavy workload, no gain, bad behavior (yours or others) and many different grievances.  Evaluating all these unacceptable feelings, attitudes, and objectionable actions and being honest with what you need and want. We are often stuck with problems, not feeling like we can break free. Taking a few minutes to breathe, be mindful of not overreacting when making decisions, as one simple and easy solution can be all it takes. We must create balance, ”our mind meets our voice meets our actions”. It only takes one step on the road to improvement.

13* Taurus New Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
 13* Taurus New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating May 3, 2011. This Taurus New Moon is all about security and how you survive on a daily basis. This can be about money, your job, how you present yourself, what title you position your job, what learning you’ve done to become a specialist or an authority. First you should have training. The objective and your course usually isn’t easily conquered in a week or a month, it can take a little while to become skilled at a craft or career. Leaping into anything only works sometimes, and very rarely. Establishing oneself from the ground up and everyday is a rendezvous of labor and effort, in some way. This is not always easy, yet we choose work for our well-being and most often it was our own choice. And if we find ourselves in situations that were not our selection, how do we create the life we want to live, so we don’t become full of angst and feeling stuck.
 We can find what we are passionate about, having to make sure it’s a realistic or practical enough to establish. If we feel confused, we can ask our friends and family for their opinions. We may need to brace ourselves, as they may not coddle our feelings. But you do want to keep all of their views in mind.  And there are ways to promote yourself and your business prospects. If it’s a good idea or vision you will be able to spark others with your enthusiasm or new found identity. Remembering to be subtle and richly share.
There are easy ways to exchange ideas and helpfulness, other’s follow the lead and begin to support what is needed. You notice when you are being enriched by others either spiritually, emotionally, mentally or physically. Try to remain within these guidelines, using your intuition and gut reaction to positive outcome. When this isn’t the case and others are not willing to share or participate – especially if you are pulling more than half the load, it could be time to admit they need to learn without you. Many people can resent you or the situation, if you give, give, give and it may be you projecting on them your need to be liked or accepted. Recognize when you are not letting go of someone needing to find their own path. We want control, but we also want what is right for those we like or feel devotion toward.
Communicating how we present ourselves can be important. Being who we want to become is central.

Full Worm Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
The Worm Moon at 28* Virgo will culminate March 19, 2:10pm pst/ 5:10pm est (almanac) The moon is your personal spotlight in the world, as you are on the earth’s stage. You are seen in the world and this Super Moon is about doing your best, creating optimum health and vitality. Taking the initiative and becoming a robust and purposeful human. Are you moving toward your goals or away from everything you ever dreamt possible.  You either rally gaining access to your goals or you give up, let’s not allow surrender be an option. It could be that you are not aware of relinquishing what you do well or finest on the planet. You may not realize you aren’t trying as hard anymore, that health, wellbeing and your zest is waning. You may look in a mirror and not recognize who is staring back at you. When did  this happen and why is it happening,  look deeper than surface sight.
Have that self talk in the mirror, let’s not go into the outer aspects before tuning into the inner you. The outer you is how you are manifesting in the world, the inner you is quite a beautiful creation, within you houses your soul and the depth of your being. On the inside we work at gaining perspective, truthfulness, activation of the life force, creating love, becoming aware of our individual purpose, gaining inspiration on what we do well, talents and hidden capabilities. The recognition of vitality, who we are and the capacity to find what is foremost for you. If only to create solutions easily, adjusting little things, allowing bigger issues to be fragmented toward gradual results.
No more ignoring yourself or feeling out of sorts, establish strength in all areas of body, mind and spirit . Brave your life, it’s trials and tribulations, acting accordingly to rectify your confidence, learning to live easily in your body and brain. Try improving behavior and attitude, and developing talents and ideas. You may not live in the prettiest area, but start enjoying and thriving in your living space and surroundings. Look for finding purpose in your job, it might only be to bring comfort to your family or to yourself. Establish grace in your social life, seeing the good in others. Do not be someone you are not, and access your needs. Tune in to know what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong, where are you working against yourself.  You can certainly see when others are out of whack, questioning their appearance, unhappiness, boisterousness, boundary issues, self absorption, mental issues, self destruction,  wasted time, and unused talent. We get self conscious or too busy in the outer world to work on ourselves and sometimes lose our way. Use the gravitational pull to clear your life, allow angst and insecurities to leave your psyche. Come back to you, The Real You…

Journal Questions:
Take a notebook with you into your bathroom or full length mirror – create notes on how you can change your appearance, Try not to be mean to yourself, make observations – don’t be self loathing. Critique, not criticize… Write down all nice things about yourself. What do you feel about your spirit, your capacity for love, your interest in knowledge, your connection with nature. Create some real time with yourself. Do this with your clothes on and off, be vulnerable even to yourself. Meditate for a few minutes on being really alright with who you are. Soothe your soul. Be connected to your mind, spirit, body and the earth…

Life is an evolving process. It will take us on rides of passion and pleasure to the very depths of despair. At times we consider life sheer madness, and the universe random and thoughtless. That’s when our survival instincts kick in. We strive for hopefulness, mercy and grace. From the deepest parts of ourselve’s we hold on and maneuver the ups and downs, transformation and harmonizing will bring us great wonder and some satisfaction.


      “There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is on a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”
~Martha Graham (American Dancer, Teacher and Choreographer of modern dance, 1894-1991)

Full Snow Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
The Snow Moon at 29* Leo will culminate Feb 18, 12:36am pst/ 3:36am est (almanac) This moon is about being powerful and ambitious. It can rock the boat as all of a sudden you feel carefree and reckless. Aquarius allows you to perceive the vision and Leo is taking claim. Normality seems lifeless and boring. Drama may take hold of your heart or your words. Shaking up the status quo, your desire to have what you want and not knowing why you sometimes want it. Many times what we desire seems out of reach.
Why don’t we always go after what we want. We can find ourselves in dead end jobs, unhappy relationships, un daunting incidents and we certainly know how we got there but did we take one wrong turn and it keeps leading to bad and bitter circumstance’s. Where’s the correct road to move towards the destiny that ultimately labels ‘perfection’. How does one get back on track. Is it the shake up or are you looking to gain perspective, the first application might be to recognize that something is wrong. Look at the good and bad happening in your life. If you aren’t making money, gaining love or happiness, what can you do if you are stuck.
Life is a bit of a puzzle, the pieces to complete the picture will be different for everyone. But there is a common thread of decency and human dignity. Abiding by the laws of the earth are foremost the path of fulfilling contentment. Those laws are free flowing boundary integration, there is enough light to make things grow – but what happens when things grow too big with power or greed. There is enough water to sustain everyone and everything also land to appreciate and care for – but what about pollution. There are children to love and help prosper – but how do we handle problems. Everything we are allowed to fix, develop and accomplish are gifts. We forget we are a living miracle and must try and stay conscious to that fact. We have a capacity to have faith in ourselves.
How to become unstuck:
• What is your dream
• Having fun again
• Simple pleasures
• Reassurance
• Attitude adjustment
• Taking care of yourself
• Get in water
• Telling the truth
• Learning new things
• Become a Love magnet
• Be reasonable about time
• Be your own best friend

“All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.”~Aristotle

13*Aquarius New Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
 13* Aquarius New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating February 3, 2011. This Aquarius New Moon is about how you envision the future for yourself. Your destiny will enfold as your mind, voice and actions dictate. We can be in situations that we think or wish we didn’t put ourselves in. Do you stay stuck in the past, wishing for things to be different, speaking of days gone by, or converse of pain to dissect over and over. We want to tap into our emotions and feelings but we have to know when to let things go. Moving on and growing from the lessons that we’ve endured, making them “work for us instead of against us” time for newness and future possibilities. We have patterns and cycles, where sometimes we put ourselves and others down, or have a bleak outlook, instead of sparking conversation of ideas, hobbies and events. You know what hasn’t worked before. You may not tap into what doesn’t work for you, but you know, because it’s the pain and uneasy feelings. It’s the confusion and the chaos. It’s the anger and low self-esteem.  Sometimes we don’t allow our best selves to shine, carrying neglect deep in our hearts and soul. Feeling unworthy to eat well, or to keep strong, disappointments bring judgment on ourselves and the people around us. And other people can spark that harshness. For others can break your heart if you allow them to do so, or make you cry in bitterness or anguish.
Do you put yourself in last place for everything, ie. love, money, food, fun, laughter, friendship, happiness. You may want and need to share, but be resourceful and good to yourself. Keeping a good attitude and changing to conscious behavior is a start…you can now begin to burst forth – just as spring in a few months. It’s easy to get stuck with the expectations of others and self-denial, it’s easy to fall into a rut and not make any moves to get out of the situations that have you programmed. How do you expect your life to look like, feel like, and be. It’s time to dream and speak of the future and move slowly in that direction.
You’ll need to take action, nothing overt, assess gentleness, resolve feelings and start to flow with facts. As daily we can accumulate more worry, paralyzing fear and uneasy feelings. All problems have solutions. Clarification brings sound resolution. Every day make a little effort to work at solving a problem or issues, adding a personal goal and aspiration. You don’t need to stumble anymore, feel guilty or pent up. Stay steady to being responsible to your life and others is important. We live up to being a good son or daughter, we live up to being a good father or mother, we live up to being a good friend, we live up to taking care of our loved ones, we live up to being part of a community, we live up to our better self if we allow ourselves to do so.
The sky is the limit, there are no barriers. Limitations are self-imposed. Stand up and breathe freedom. Breathe deep again and enrich your self-esteem. Breathe all the way to the bottom of your stomach. You can progress, cast away recklessness, abandonment, burdens or restless apprehension. Breathe in Life.

Stop feeling lack luster…take time for you, get a hobby or meet other’s. There are millions of people in the world. There are many lonely people waiting to be friends. There are people who need to slow down and enrich their lives with meaningful people around them. There is time to accomplish your goals and live a good life. They say Money isn’t grown on trees, but it is made easily…the earth is full of bounty and blessings and they are yours by birthright. It’s all about creating the live you long to live.

“There is no such thing as chance; and what seem to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.”
 ~Friedrich von Schiller (German Poet, Dramatist, Philosopher and Historian. 1759-1805)




  •  Full Wolf Moon
    By Tara Sutphen
     
    The Wolf Moon is at 29* Cancer will culminate January 19, 2011 1:22pm pst/ 4:22pm est (almanac) This is a time to be nestled in for winter, bringing our consciousness toward our loved ones, family and the home. As humans we often concentrate on being unreasonable, and we can’t seem to remove the blinders or take the time to hear others.  We forget it’s a conscious choice to live a beautiful life and that it is ours by birthright.
    Yourself: Our thoughts can predominate in an area of looking inward or outside ourselves.  With inward thinking, either you are building a perfect human by creating love, happiness, wisdom, solutions and good judgment or you’re downgrading to being mean to yourself, spiraling toward worm status. Worm status is when you think of yourself as lowly and not deserving. You could even be berating and calling yourself or others bad names, lowering your self esteem even further. Recognize the time is now never tomorrow to build yourself. You may not be able to turn behavior, reaction or proactive overnight, but it will all be worth taking the necessary steps to try. And if you need help, there are lots of articles to read for inspiration and tips and maybe you need to start talking to a neutral therapist, a guidance counselor or wise relative. Learn to create smooth relationships and peacefulness. Your home life should be a haven. Work life is goals and competitiveness. All areas of your life should bring fulfillment.
    Parents: All parents should take time to ”listen” to their children at any age. If they feel you are not listening to them, they sometimes try to entertain you or act out dangerously or rudely. Gently remind them to be safe and use common sense. Know when you are giving them too much advice or being too playful. If you are an imbiber know that all drugs and alcohol do not lead to the palace of wisdom, many times you teach your kids not only to be scared of you but also to be fearful of life. We all have problems, seek solutions. Sometimes chaos has ensued and parents grapple for control, no matter the age of said child, it takes time to re-establish peace and order, persevere and it can happen. You are a parent living up to your thoughts of what parenthood should be. You will always be a parent once you are one. Welcome to real life. Remember parents never give up, they rest a little or find help but you never give up hope and the promises you envisioned when your children were born.
    Children: No matter the age, children need to find wonderful possibilities in the world. Playing and bantering are expressions of the interaction they’re creating for the future. Parents, teachers, friends and foes will help them find ways to find support and become individuals. When you feel their pent up energy guide them toward something constructive, so they easily find their way toward education, exercise, inspiration, laughter, curiosity and self expression. Allow grandiose excitement at times and moments of silence and pondering, it allows for healthy living. Be kind to your children for they grow far too fast. Sadly we hear our forefathers speak of their children often growing up not to fulfill their expectations and children aren’t in sync with the parent’s ideas or ways of thinking. We must remember not to live in a small realm, children are born of the big world with all the trends of their tomorrow. They ready themselves for their lifestyles and the future. It is not for us to question, but to embrace. If they are in trouble, we gently lead them back to safety. And that goes for children taking care of their parents too...lead them back to safety.
    Lovers/Spouses: To be Loved you must be Loving........Keep at it. We are a part of a big plan, not everything goes smoothly but we must have faith and hope. Love is always the answer.

Even when he walks on the moon, man has to take with him, his fears, his anxieties, his prejudices and his pet aversions.”  ~Sri Sathya Sai Baba (Indian Spiritual leader, b.1926)

13* Capricorn New Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
13* Capricorn New Moon with partial eclipse (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating January 4, 2011. This Capricorn New Moon is about clarity. What’s on your mind that you can speak directly and clearly, with a level head. Capricorn is about calculation, capability and proficiency. It’s not about what you’d like to do, it’s about what you can and will do. How you achieve in the world and where you belong. There is no fanciful dancing in sugar fluff fields when Capricorn is in charge. And this moon is about speaking what you need and why you need it. It’s not about what your family needs, lovers want or communicating with other people. It’s about “you” and what you possess in daily abilities and survival instinct. Taking the time to learn who you are in the world and making a better place for yourself. You have a pretty good idea what hasn’t worked in the past and must be assessed. This is grounded thought and speaking, not fanciful ideas on flitting from job to job, or changing careers every ten minutes. How do you secure your life, making money and managing time. What are your upcoming plans on a very mundane and daily level. What is your role in your job or career. What are your skills. It can be as easy as cooperation, organizing or having a strong energy current. Sometimes we try to do everything and we can’t figure what is our cleverness or uniqueness. We can be blind to what we excel in and recognizing ability.
Your mind may shift from clear thought to a next sequence of escape and self sabotage. Are you in an anxious or fretful state, not remembering how to get from A to B to C. Do you write out lists and decisions, do you talk over game plans with friends or family. Are you someone who thinks of a schedule and can carry it out or do you go into a spin of what to do and why. Trouble with your tasks at hand, not being able to focus can mean you are spending too much time multi-tasking, not relaxing, not sleeping, not getting enough nutrition, not following through on details, excess weight, stagnation or boredom. Unless you have been physically ill, and need to organize your time to best heal. Do you start projects but can’t finish or witness someone close to you experiencing continual ungrounded behavior and habits.
Getting your thoughts straight, priorities on track, and your voice and speaking ability clearly stating your necessities and creating life in your home and work space. Every day should be productive on some level. You ate nutritionally, you spoke well, you moved your body around, or you smiled. You took time to recognize your abilities, they can stem from handiness to mastery.

Focusing is one of the ways to gain a clearer perspective. Becoming thoughtful rather than obsessive, responsive rather than heedless, rational rather than reactive - allowing space for thought and perseverance.
 
"Real life is, to most men, a long second-best, a perpetual compromise between the ideal and the possible; but the world of pure reason knows no compromise, no practical limitations, no barrier to the creative activity.”
 ~Bertrand Russell (English Logician and Philosopher 1872-1970)

Full Cold Moon
 
By Tara Sutphen
 
 
 
The Cold Moon is at 29* Gemini will culminate December 21, 2010 12:51pm pst/ 3:51am est (almanac). Not only is the moon full, there will be a total eclipse on the Winter Solstice. The Cosmos is christening you for a great awakening, if you can be open to your own light and self expression. You are an organic being interwoven with specific phases of the living world and universe, Earth and the Moon turn together, as though they are dancing.Yule begins and is the celebration of light. Coming out of the darkest day-night of the year we will begin to gain more minutes of sunlight each day. Yule is a pagan holiday where the people of Europe and Scandinavia made festive, it is not considered religious. The pagans were naturalists, such as the Native Americans and other indigenous communities around the world. They followed the course of the sun, the moon and cycles of the seasons for planting food and generally planning survival strategy.
 
As winter comes we recognize our need to rest our minds, hearts and bodies while warming at the hearth. And we are mindful we have the added eclipse, which means something needs to be taken away to make whole or pure again. Individually this will mean something different for each of us. The astrological aspects point to renewing personal truth. Taking the blinders off to contemplate and allow our personality and appearance to shine. This isn’t a time to be too lax or too stern with yourself, it’s about opening to the opportunities and possibilities presented to you.
 
Revving your internal engines to rethink and grow. Where have you missed cues and subtleties. Have you been asking yourself questions as to why you’ve been ram-rodding what you want or wanted and you got exactly that. Are you rethinking what is right and what is wrong for your reality. Have you been living a lie or idly waiting for change. Have you been living too sparsely and not asking the universe for enough? Sometimes we even do the opposite of what may be good for us. We have all dealt with some boring situations, weird events and worst case scenarios. Are they to bring us out of our reverie to better circumstances? Usually we must observe where the lesson needed to be learned, comprehending yet honoring our personal journey.
 
Maybe those who sometimes sit in emotional pain have been protected. We can get what we ask for…but there’s the old adage of “be careful what you wish for”. Be thoughtful as the path of destiny is different for each person. We don’t necessarily want to be in other’s karma or issues. You may not get people or circumstances in the exact way you long for, take the time to figure it out, time gives us a chance to either wait or work it out. Allow all poison to seep out of emotional wounds and physical laments. We’re brave from contests, but it’s time to win. Being aware of waning physical health means you are to start a program the first of the year to correct it. Sticking to regimes of better living can be hard at first, but you are giving up self-deprecating sabotage. If you are worrying about money, find solutions to enhance your career or take the time to learn a new job or task. Before you came to earth you summoned certain people, places, events and things. Mainly out of bravery that you could handle “anything”.
 
Acknowledge how your vitality can be full and enriching, you want to live the greatest life. Own the statement and sentiment “I want to live the most Amazing Beautiful Existence”. You ask for wisdom, be open to receive. The moon is your personal spotlight upon the earth, Sorce the Moon…

13* Sagittarius New Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

 13* Sagittarius New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating December 5, 2010. This Sagittarius New Moon is about stepping up to be a willing participant in your environment. Be it the home front or your community. What would you like to study or acquire. Every time you step out the front door you are given an opportunity to meet wonderful, sincere people and construct healthy, wholesome learning experiences. Have you become numb to the favorable circumstances that await you. There are choices. How we construct our time and how we treat people. You can be thoughtful. Even if you are on a time crunch, you can be kind, assert and speak comfortably, acting in tune with your intentions. We don’t always have time for friendly but we have time to be perceptive and gracious. If your day is spent in road rage, anxiety and churning worry, how will that help you design the life you want to live. Not all days come out smelling like roses, to be responsible we do have to actively handle day to day problems, and it’s important to have goals to pursue.

There is a bigger picture of your life without the nitpicking, doubt and self criticism. Nothing gets done until we leave complaints and disparaging behavior behind.  If you think about it, we decorate our minds, our hearts, our bodies, our homes and careers. Some of us work hard at our anima, and we need to stay connected to actualizing a persona.  We can garnish and adorn ourselves, and also know it’s important to access what is enriching. Who are you, the embellished you or the real you. What needs to be polished, inside the self, such as working on your sincerity, hopefulness, and trust or  finding the outside self, improving your friendships, romance, and academic skills. What attributes are you reworking,” the inside you”, “the outside you” or “the issues you’ve come to think are you”. Let’s act toward alleviating fears, instead of collecting more by the day. You can give yourself some words and energy support to overcome some of your stress, therapies such as hypnosis, meditation, massages, hugs from our loved ones, or maybe a good inner dialogue of clear reasoning can help. No holding on to what holds you back. If you want friends you must reach out to be a friend. If you want love, you must reach out for love. If you want wisdom, you must stretch your mind, be questioning, listen and consider. If you want to achieve, you must be purposeful. If you want great health, you must begin. If you want life, you must live. There is no absoluteness in our reality, though it is malleable.

What would you like to learn or study?

Interacting with others and our environment, we should always remind ourselves we shouldn’t have regrets.  If it wasn’t how we wanted to spend our time then to be honest but move ourselves out of situations that aren’t serving us. It isn’t to be rash with others feelings or our own, find balance.  We don’t always get what we want, and we must know on some level that we want the very best or to learn a lesson so that we don’t have to repeat it again. We are not always in sync with others or their destiny. Actually we are in accord with very few people, but we empathize with many.

 

“Why, except as a means of livelihood, a man should desire to act on the stage when he has the whole world to act in, is not clear to me.”  ~George Bernard Shaw (Irish literary Critic, Playwright and Essayist. 1925 Nobel Prize for Literature, 1856-1950)

Full Beaver Moon

By Tara Sutphen

 

The Beaver’s Moon at 29* Taurus will culminate November 21, 2010 9:29am pst/ 12:29pm est (almanac) This moon is about your money, your possessions, and your environment. Idea’s can come to light on how to master what you would like to manifest.  Have you been challenged with how the media, economy and politics scare the mass populace?  Align and feel the earth beneath you, it’s time for a reprieve, to relax and be less stressful.  Bend down and touch the ground if you want, be in wonder of where you are...right now. Become aware of your surroundings, the choices you’ve made and the new modifications you are going to make. You’re ready to step into your life, not away from it, right?  Touch your arm, your heart, and your face to reconnect your body. Take a moment to be in full appreciation of you.  (10 seconds) Take a moment to value the people in your life. (10 seconds)

Observing and listening to others should be a peaceful and sometimes rewarding experience.  It is time to reconnect to your environment.  Be the captain of your own ship, sailing in the direction you long to go. The moon, your personal spotlight in the world, asks you to tune in to your physical appearance and inner radiance allowing yourself to shine. You belong to the earth’s glory; attune your personal vibration with the earth’s resonance. It must be you who integrates warmth, sincerity and a constructive attitude.  Your life force is affirmed by you. Exercise on how to gain full consciousness. Take a 360 degree turn to embed people, places and things into your memory. Breathe in the experience, the colors, and your feelings.  

No more judgment or complaining about people, events and situations. You are going to make the ever present now a reality in your daily life. The holidays are coming, good practice for being open to forgiveness, and thoughtfulness. Leave the past in the past. Problems came into your life to help you stumble forth when you were stuck and not paying attention.  No reruns, this is it. Whether you handled them well or not, take knowledge, love, and your security needs to the next level.  Be in touch with who you are, “Feel it, See it, Hear it and Know it” – open your psychic centers to enhance every day.

“Let your mind start a journey thru a strange new world. Leave all thoughts of the world you knew before. Let your soul take you where you long to be...Close your eyes let your spirit start to soar, and you'll live as you've never lived before.”

13* Scorpio New Moon




13* Scorpio New Moon
By Tara Sutphen


13* Scorpio New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating November 6, 2010. This Scorpio New Moon is about communicating on a deeper level, a time to convey thoughts into meaningful words. Thinking deeply doesn’t always give way to articulation. We can do an awful lot of talking without necessarily creating a constructive flow. All talking including chatter to your inner you or to others should be constructive in nature, not destructive. Are you harboring personal secrets, misleading yourself of what you want or fooling yourself. What dynamics or issues are within your love life, family, friendships, career or health, this may be a chance to come face to face with your needs. Why not free your mind and voice to find your power within. Keeping effective counsel in your dreaming, speaking and functioning is a way to create positive thoughts, words and deeds. Make changes to alleviate some of the stress you experience. What is your inner dialogue, in your mind or under your breath, are you listening to what “you say”.
Sometimes we find others having a certain hold on us, and we may feel they keep us from achieving our full potential. In actuality, we cannot blame others for our lack of success in any area of life. We can wonder how we found ourselves on rollercoaster loop to loop’s, but do we know when we should get off the ride? It might be time for an attitude adjustment and maybe even a physical change. Our viewpoints come into focus when we are thinking more clearly and precisely. We may have expectations that everyone will someday click into deeper reasoning. That is not necessarily so. And the sooner you concentrate on your abundant self worth and your inner beauty. True consciousness will come to light. For finding the resplendence within gives you the ability to shine for others. Hold your inner counsel.

Full Hunter’s Moon 
By Tara Sutphen 

The Hunter’s Moon at 29* Aries will culminate October 22, 2010 6:38pm pdt/ 9:38pm edt (almanac). Last full moon was to get our body up and moving, repositioning our attitude to the wonder of a new day. And this Full Moon we are asked to begin to master our destiny. Stop putting off what could be done today. Be proactive every moment of your life. Don’t just dream or speak what you want, but move into slow and sure action. It’s not about change, it’s about enhancing. We are to radiate our whole lives to create grace with this multi complex life we find ourselves. If you close your eyes, what comes into your mind. And if it’s your problems, nix those. Come into daydreaming, Success, Happiness, Love, Places, People and Things. Or do you daydream about escapism, beer, socializing, events, shopping and more problems. Our energy goes where our thoughts flow. There is no escape, this is your life. There are blocks and karma, but we can be armed with steadfast assertiveness. And this isn’t about other’s, it’s about you and your epiphanies. 
You can’t necessarily incite other people around you and ask them to listen to misconceptions, fears and attributes. Our fears are not others, when they are troubled it is in our best interest to show them mercy, wisdom and love. We look into others lives very easily and can see what we think is best for them, but it really comes back to what is good for you. You can be concentrating outside of yourself and keep missing your own boat. Can you be your own appraiser. Doing a critique on yourself, is not being your worst enemy. It’s only laying a little groundwork to follow. Stop justifying peoples bad moods or bad habits, or your own bad behavior. Time to walk our talk and talk our walk. Our family and friends are to be meaningful, our work is to create fulfillment, our being is to shine. We don’t have to be like anyone else, only ourselves, doing the best we can.

Look into the mirror and smile or acknowledge yourself, if you’ve been ignoring yourself….please don’t anymore.

15* Virgo New Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 

15* Virgo New Moon (no moon – starry dark sky, the time of dreaming), culminating September 8, 2010. This Virgo New Moon is about taking action toward your dreams, your romances, children and creativity using detail with earthly practicality. If you want something you can no longer be a dreamer, you must step into the material world of reality. Remember it only takes one small step and then another. And let’s look at your birth pre-plan…..brave, taking on too much physically and emotionally. Are you in control or have you lost that. Have you forgotten how to love, how to dream, how to create your reality. Are you watching as you walk forward or are you still entranced in the past.
Real life didn’t promise to be anything but perceptible. We will all lose and we will all gain. Sometimes we lose our footing due to not having enough energy to deal with circumstances and must gently strive at wellness and wholeness. Work at being strong enough to live life on your terms. We know many that suffer and it is our mercy and wisdom to help them along also. It’s hard to help others unless you are in a position to offer thus. Create health, genuine love and exploring your talents and ideas. It’s never too late.
Journal Questions:
 
What needs to be created again in your life? Write 3-5 sentences on each category.
How can you enhance ______?
 
• Love
• Money
• Wellness
• Happiness
• Playfulness

Life stares us down, tries to run us over, and people bump into us. We can be dazed and confused until we awaken and take our lives back and continue on the way, tapping into our depth of being and full consciousness. Stepping into our personal power and creating the life we are meant to live.
 
"Most people would succeed in small things if they were not troubled with great ambitions.”
 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (American Poet in the 19th century, 1807-1882)

Full Sturgeon Moon
By Tara Sutphen


The Sturgeon Moon at 1* Pisces will culminate August 24, 2010 10:05 pdt/1:05pm edt (almanac). This moon is a powerful and spiritual occasion.  A gift, we don’t have aspects like this every day. A time to intercede logic and try to understand our deeper mind and motives. Where have we come from. What are we doing on earth. Why have we come into being. As a recollection we speculate we have been on a search starting long ago for soul recognition in the darkest regions of earth and space. Our subconscious mind knows where we come from but our conscious mind is wiped clean of pre-birth memories. As we study other’s past theories, we may come to conclusions and think we know. We may study our whole life to gain a well spring of belief and yet only reveal idealogies. In daily life we may have it figured out what we want on an intellectual and/or physical basis. But to research the soul’s agenda, it is hidden. We are here on earth stumbling around, trying to do our best or maybe our worst. How do we ignore our self, pamper our spirit or should we fill it with dogma. Are we lost, ever roaming the universe going from one reality to another. Lost is only a state of mind. The opportunity may be to open your mind and be present with the oneness of all. You have been given this individual journey, the wondrous sanctity of life. Recognize where your feet are this moment. Start thinking and doing what enhances your life instead of what breaks it. Make the connection between the cosmos, your soul and your breath.

 

 

Journal Questions:

 

Describe your personal theory on what is your soul. Is it matter? Try not to use anyone else’s preconceived concepts. Create your own story. Make it 5 sentences or more.

 

If you had a soul agenda, what would it be?

Would you be doing something differently than you are now?

Full Buck Moon
By Tara Sutphen


The Full Buck Moon at 2* Aquarius will culminate July 25, 2010 9:37pm pdt/July 26 12:37am edt (almanac). This enchanting summer moon is a time to make plans for the future. To sit under the moonlight pondering, closing your eyes and making wishes. And in our inner knowing, it is time to become like the butterfly. In our lifetime will we become the butterfly instead of the caterpillar.  Look at the caterpillar with it’s 3 sets of legs and 8 eyes, it leisurely slinks along the ground, drags the earth and slowly gets to where it wants to go until it uses it’s ability to transform. Once in the cocoon, growing, deep in thought and plans for the change. Emerging brand new, forming beauty and wonder, flying and no longer crawling. The butterfly flies with grace and easily lands on soft flowers instead of dirt. The metaphor is much like us as humans, we go slowly and deliberately feeling half blind at times with narrow ideas and untried measures until we soon get tired of not taking some steps to right our lives. Knowing that we must change into our best and highest selves, we must strive toward securing our lives. And once we are a butterfly to spread light and love to anyone in our path. We all need assurance and the will to accomplish. To try new things. A butterfly tastes with it’s feet. How do we get to butterfly status. You don’t want to wait till you die to know, you want it now…on earth.

 

When you dream, daydream or hope about anything that could be a possibility in the world, easily let yourself be free. Your mind is a powerful tool. There are times when you will only see colorful illusions, but allow for some intervals of rest and play. When you sorce and pray, let your vision be for real things upon the earth. Your intentions become your world.

 

Journal Questions:

Dreaming and Wishing doesn’t mean we’ll get what we want, but it certainly can’t hurt to create a mindset for goals . With all the changes that happen around us, we want to change into our best selves. To become the butterfly…

19* Cancer  New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

19* Cancer  New Moon this month (no moon – the time of dreaming), culminating July 11, 2010. There is also a Total Solar Eclipse 12:40pm pdt/3:40 edt.  The eclipse will only be visible through the South Pacific and it will be intense lasting over five minutes. Eclipses are about change or letting go, it can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life. This Cancer New Moon is about your emotions and finding balance in your home life. How might we use the eclipse to change our personal world to the one we really want to be in. By using your instincts to center yourself, balance your needs, and to recognize where you belong. When your instincts are in a quandary, you might find yourself irrational and irritable. Let us come back to solid ground. Your life starts at home — your wellness starts from the home, your beauty starts from the home, your success starts from the home. And your spirituality starts from the home. This is why it’s important to create a sanctuary and wholesome life. What you walk out your door with every day is “structure” to get you to your next level of wellness, happiness, success, and love.  Inner formation of strength and vitality renews your spirit to conquer an outer world.

You may not live in a castle, you may not be near to living in a place of your dreams, let alone with the people who surround you or the city or town you find yourself in, so what will you do. You could complain and become overly anxious, we must ask for a certain amount of help to gain help. But complaints can lead to whining and disapproval, people can shut off instead of being supportive. Often seen in the eyes of our elders we must be reasonable or have something to trade. Be it time and energy to an actual craft. We must stay open, tuning into our primal survival instinct and our conscious motives. We must conform to what is good for us, helping us sustain our home life and feelings of emotional stability. If everything is going wrong for you, what is going right for you. Where are you not listening to the inner workings of your heart, of your wants, your mind, your goals and your treaties. Those compromises you’ve made to be living the life you are living right now. You’ve made choices and now find yourself where you are. Is it what you want or do you need a correction. Look at your feet…where do you stand. Look in the mirror…who are you. Look at your hands…what do you do.

Full Strawberry Moon
By Tara Sutphen

 

The Full Strawberry Moon at 4* Capricorn will culminate June 26, 2010 1:31 am pdt/4:31am edt (almanac). There will also be a Partial Lunar Eclipse. This is when the moon will cross through the southern portion of Earth's shadow and will be visible to those in western and central North America. The Umbral shadow will cover 54 percent of the moon's surface. Eclipse's are about change or letting go, it can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life. Especially true this month as there is extra ‘jet fuel’ coming from Pluto. When we have such big events happening in the sky, it might stir up not only our personal worlds but the planet itself. It could be a time to joggle us awake.

The meaning of this full moon is about our homes, places we conduct business and how we offer ourselves to the betterment of mankind. You don’t have to do major things in the world to help out, it’s the little things that sometimes matter, the support we receive close to home. What are your giving traits, spiritually, emotionally and physically. As earthlings we act in our self interest. Healthy self interest that flow into talents, ideas, and service allows a person to have something to share. We see when people go overboard with being greedy, jealous, hateful or angry. Why does this happen? Where is the perspective to keep it real. And what is real?  If we look into the sky, and stretch our minds eye to go farther out away from the world into space and now past our solar system and turn ourselves around to look back at earth. Where are we? What are we? We are a human speckle. We deem ourselves as important speckles on missions. As a speck we want to create something worthwhile for ourselves. At our end, we’ll have wanted to share a few hugs and helped do a little something here or there. We know we’re exceptional. What makes for a meaningful life? What is your mission?

Journal Questions:

Write in your journal for the full moon and throughout the month.

10 areas of life or chores you need help with?

10 Ways in how you can help others?

List your self-less traits

How do you give?

·         How do you give spiritually?

·         How do you give emotionally?

·         How do you give physically?

How are you feeling ‘lack’?

·         Do you have family issues with people and lack?

·         Do you have friend issues with people and lack?

·         Do you have business issues with people and lack?

·         Do you have success issues with lack?

·         Do you have health issues and connect them to lack?

Where do you trade or exchange with people as in your job… in your home….with your family…… with your friends? 

·         What are your goals?

·         What is your personal goal?

·         What is your business goal?

·         What is your success goal?

·         What is your happiness goal?

·         What is your health goal?

·         What is your World goal?

 

What do you feel is a meaningful life?

What do you feel is your mission?

 

Selfless actions and thoughts actually bring a person more satisfaction and contentment. Sometimes we aren’t acknowledged or feel appreciated. At least your effort was for the right reasons to bring something good to another. You will give many times and it won’t be returned from the same source. You may crave the same sentimental attitude that you offered to another. Or what was given would be returned in an even exchange. But that is not truly giving, that would be manipulating. In your heart and minds eye, visualize your open hands to receive. Staying accessible in mind, heart and body will bring many rewards. Seek emotional simplicity and value. Your true mission will soon be clear.

 

He was no martyr. He was no hero. But in the last two years, selfishness gave way to selflessness, lies gave way to truth and indulgence gave way to spirituality, and anyone watching that couldn't help but be moved by it.”- Lex Lasry


21* Gemini New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

21* Gemini New Moon this month (no moon – the time of dreaming), culminating June 12, 2010. This Gemini New Moon is about communicating and finding balance through your vocal skills, your internal process of sending and receiving. A part of good communication is a willingness to be a listener. What or who are you willing to listen to, are you growing or learning or just going through the motions of babble and criticism. How have you established your connection with your higher purpose. When you converse are you able to convey thoughtfully or are you too busy trying to be liked.  We start learning from childhood, and the remarks of others stay deep within our subconscious and conscious mind. We’ve all had someone tell us that we couldn’t achieve this or that, or we weren’t good enough, smart enough, or worthy enough. Did you go ahead and bulldoze through those self esteem busters or were you held back and down by comments of the fearful. And sometimes they were from well meaning loved ones, but we have our internal source of what is right for our individual lives and being worthy should be at the top of your list. There are people who feel free to find fault or point out the negative in situations. The key though is where your judgment comes into play to find a solution. Break down concepts of what are right or wrong for you. With every criticism is a bridge to improvement. With every stumbling block, there is a stepping stone.

Lets visit the concept of being liked by others and going along with conversations that are out of our character, such as hateful gossip or inane speaking about nothing in particular. Are you too accessible, ‘like me, like me, like me’ or do you hold your own. Have you become quiet or talk about everything other than what is important to you. Do you dump and whine about your problems. Do you go along with mundane conversations or are you competitive and it’s hard for others to keep up with you. Have you shut down, becoming cold and silent. Many people find that they have no one to talk to, feeling lonely in this huge world.  Others speak angrily or defensively and there is no need to let others talk down to you.  Who are you talking with. Who are you attracting. Where are people bringing value into your life. There is a secret here, what value are you bringing into their life. Maybe you are always to be the wise one, or bigger person. The evolving soul who soothes others in their endeavors or pain. . As a species we are deeply wounded and for reasons unbeknownst even to our deepest selves.  The question though is do we allow our feelings and the remarks of others to make or break us. We should be able to take constructive criticism.  We are to win at life and to make our lives wholesome and workable. We are to succeed and live well, no matter what others tried to do to make our lives hard.

Journal Questions:

Do you need to retrain your inner dialogue? Are you your best friend or worst enemy? You may want to take the rose colored glasses off about yourself and be realistic, yet loving. Treat yourself well. Others will follow that lead…

The 5 categories that we talk about are trivia, facts, opinions, feelings and needs.

  • Trivia – Familiar and conventional comments, questions and answers
  • Facts – Data and details about people, places and things
  • Opinions – Points of view, suggestions, examinations, forewarnings, and judgments
  • Feelings- Emotions, receptivity, sensitivity, perceptions, understanding, and sympathy
  • Needs – Requirements, wants, fulfillment, claims, and essentials

There are ways of sharing problems and creating constructive reprogramming and fixing the ways of sharing verbal intimacy, not with just a partner but making connection with friends and family. Good conversationalists ask questions and listen.

Write out your expectations in these relationships. Hopes, Desires, Wants…Write the fantasy or good feelings of each one.  What you want? Do you uphold your level of receptivity? What are your motives, notions, and overall outlook? Where can you improve? How reliable you are? How reliable are others? Who do you consider Prospects? Where do you find your friends or acquaintances? How do you feel about commitments? How trusting are you of others? What are your Presumptions? What is your Reality? What are your fantasies? How can you change your life and relationships? Where are problems? Write out a hopeful conclusion or a solution.

  • Acquaintances
  • Friendships
  • Partnerships
  • Family Relationships
  • Love Relationships

Communicating:

  • Sharing information – Are you informative. When is it constructive or destructive?
  • Sharing feelings – Where do you support others as they should support you?
  • Sharing ideas – Are these ideas moving in the direction of goals or fixable solutions? Every good idea has steps toward achievement. Know that you can move ideas to pro-active acquirement or attainment.
  • Sharing knowledge – How do you share common sense and perceptions?  There are ways to help through constructive wisdom and good reasoning.
  • Deep sharing – Intimacy in love and connection. How are you opening to your intrapersonal thoughts, motivations and desires? Is there equal measure of spiritual linking? Is there equal measure of emotional bonding? Is there equal measure of physical expression and affection? What do you lack, or give too much of, or not have at this time?

You cannot falsely advance the process of deep sharing; you’ll have to build steps with someone who deserves your time and attention. Do not force this type of interaction, it should be natural. Until the time of finding someone special, concentrate on rewarding yourself with positive intrapersonal dialogue and support, upgrade your soul level of worthiness, and practice good conversations with others.

“Feelings of worth can flourish only in an atmosphere where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes are tolerated, communication is open, and rules are flexible – the kind of atmosphere that is found in a nurturing family.
~ Virginia Satir (American Psychologist and Educator, 1916-1988)

Full Flower Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Flower Moon at 6* Sagittarius will culminate May 26, 2010 1:07pm pdt/4:07pm edt (almanac). Last month for the Full Pink Moon we looked at fear and how that impedes our lives, this month is listening to our own best advice. What can you tell others about their health, career or love life and take that a step farther, and tell yourself what it is you also need. How do you seek liberation from the self. Health should be the primary concern as many put self-care on a backburner. There are those that are hypochondriacs and then there are others who never check in to the way they are functioning until it’s too late. How can we carol ourselves into wanting to create what is really good for us. Is it deep kindness to our mind and soul, giving ourselves permission to really live and love ourselves and others. Can you honestly look at the way your heart works. Are you shut down or too giving. Do you deem others worthy for the company and comradery you give them. How do you go about getting the necessary love you might crave. How do you go about working a job that demands you give in areas that are uncomfortable to your well-being. Or a lifestyle that no longer holds fascination or interest. We can go through the motions without really gaining what we need and want in our lives. It doesn’t mean excess, it doesn’t mean boundaries – it may mean good judgment. Do you use your inner knowing or instinct. It takes energy to have relief and self-determination. Take a breath and alleviate your body and mind of stress. Halt the heaviness that life hands you, and start letting go. Breathe in the breath of life, all the way to the bottom of your stomach, inhale peace and exhale chaos. It’s time to reactivate your life force…….freedom.
Journal Questions:
The time of being emotionally true to who you are…take a significant look at yourself. Who are you? How do you see yourself? How do other’s see you? What do you feel you’re capable of? In a career? In your personal life? How do you give to others? How do you hold back?

23* Taurus New Moon
Tara Sutphen


23* Taurus New Moon this month (no moon - the time of dreaming), culminating May 14, 2010. This Taurus New Moon is about reorganizing your time and energy. Are you wasting time on a non satisfying job. Is romance in other lives but not yours. Are you happy, content and carefree, but still missing something. This new moon even though it is silent in the darkness is the most intense aspect of the zodiac. If you'd like to burn off some mistakes or bad decisions, it's time to find the energetic pathway to make resolutions. You can't leap to new untried ways of life, but you can take thoughtful steps to a sound future. A life, that in time is gratified. If you can be clear on what it is you have been denying yourself or how you might be deluding yourself each day.Start forward progress to your stuck and outworn ideas or lifestyle. You'll have to dig deep for questions you might ask yourself, look for answers that are elusive or barely visible, you might have to trust penetrating the core of your being. And remember, we get nowhere unless we are honest with our self. It's not what others think you need or want, this is about you.

The Full Moon late April was a very intense clearing time, and now you have another chance to explore your imposed limits. You are to fully recognize and stop kidding yourself on who is your friend and who isn't your friend. Whether this is family or people in your environment. You are to be clear on how you make money and if you are fulfilled and satisfied or lacking a livelihood. If you are satisfied then it's time to stop complaining, about anything and everything. You can burn off that karma and make progress. Leave your enemies behind, leave your fears and frustrations behind, leave your boredom and upsets. You no longer need to disallow, withhold or work against yourself. Say yes to your life. Empower yourself to have whatever it is you think you require. It doesn't matter where you take wrong turns, it only matters you start supporting a life that belongs to you. We're talking of constructive change here, not destructive bad habits that you think might need justification. Take off your sunglasses, take off your rose color glasses -- take a magnifying glass. Who is the 'real you'.

Journal Questions:

Think of all the complaints you tell others, and you need not share this journal w. anyone else. This is for you to look deeply into yourself. Unveil your paranoia, your unrest, your lack of trust, your feelings, your untested personal power and general issues.

1. Write down 20 complaints or more
2. Write a critique with each grievance.
3. Give yourself an antidote or solution.

Recognize when you are short-sighted with your friends, co-workers, relatives, or your environment. Are you appreciative for what you have in things or love from others.

1. Write down your faults
2. Write down other's faults
3. Correction of your faults

How are you mismanaging your life?

1. Communication - write out how.
2. Self Esteem - write out why.
3. Motivation - write out solution.

Correction on management - Write 5 general fixes.

“Once I knew only darkness and stillness...my life was without past or future...but a little word from the fingers of another fell into my hand that clutched at emptiness, and my heart leaped to the rapture of living." Helen Keller


Full Pink Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Pink Moon at 8* Scorpio will culminate April 28, 2010 6:48 pdt/9:48am edt (almanac). The time of thinking deeply, examining changes you want in your emotional and mental framework. Look at the facts about yourself. Are you lacking self esteem and where does this distinguish or peculiarize you. We symbolize and personalize ourselves with our culture, creed, religion and eras. We can feel lost until we develop goals, ideals and intention. Where are your values and are they being recognized at this time. Values are morals and sense of honor, are you in conscious contact with your beliefs and standards. You can wonder ‘Am I living up to who I want to be’. ‘Am I being true to myself in love’, ‘Am I clear on who I like, what I like and why I like it’. What are the real truths deep within. Are you numbed by disappointments, drama or trauma. Do you spout statements or go over in your mind how angry you are, how your family makes you unhappy, how you have no friends, or your friends aren’t real friends, or your job is going to kill you one day. Do you slip from real thoughts and emotional reasoning to frustration over others. Many people turn away without reasons why from each other, instead of keeping their feelings at an even keel. I see many unreasonable upsets started because there are no questions asked, no feelings explored, and no resolutions encountered. No communication or connection. Ignore your needs and you may be able to sustain your life for five minutes, five years, or 50 years but we do eventually have to come back to ourselves and if we’re lucky we answer to a few beloved others. You may feel like others blocked your life. Do you think it’s other people who hurt or inhibit you, or is it you who puts yourself in a position to fail or to grow.
This moon aspect is all about digging for your trouble spots and taking them out for a little examination. Those personality traits that you abhor in others and could be afraid are within your character as well, I know we would like to think it isn’t so. You don’t want to be like someone you resent. Search and clear up any history and issues. If you ask someone what your weakness is…many could write you a long list. They might not tell you to your face, but we all know that people judge us for our strengths and weakness’. We shouldn’t really care about someone else’s opinion unless it genuinely helps us achieve greater things in ourselves. You may have a few bad habits though needing to be discarded. Why do you hold onto restrictions. Are you afraid of change, or are you changing too rapidly in your life and can’t stabilize. Mental illness and stress can start as bad habits. Think of others and their complaints or fear. Fear of love, being hurt in love, not being good enough, not being strong enough, body image, job image, self confidence issues, unhappiness, the list can be long. And at this moon we will look at the uglies we need to reform, as we know what strengths we seek. Passion, Pleasure and Personal Power are our goals. How are we going to learn to love, to the depths of the universe. How are we going to learn to succeed, to the highest plateau of the earth. How are we going to learn to be wise and overcome all obstacles, we stretch until we get it right.

Journal Questions:

Give yourself permission to write out unsavory characteristics about yourself. You don’t have to share them with anyone. It is up to you to make yourself aware of what you may need to change? Think of ways to change gracefully. What do you perceive as your ‘uglies’? Bad temper, rotten self image, putting down others, unhappy, ungracious, condescending, cunning, manipulating, under handed, jealous, greedy, bitter, unreasonable, procrastinate, offensive, obnoxious, unpleasant, hopeless, full of excuses, can’t, won’t, afraid…Are these a part of self-esteem issues? Write out where you lost your confidence? Write out who contributed to your dis-ease? Where did these people hurt you, how did it help you grow? Why did you hold onto the bitterness? Did they hold onto the bitterness too? What would happen if you let your mind go free? What would happen if you allowed yourself to care about yourself again. Caring about your well-being and happiness? That you can form another habit of thinking you deserve a great life. That to create a good life, you must recognize what doesn’t work for you and what certainly might work, if given a chance to step toward success, happiness, great health or love. It may not happen overnight, it could be a process. Allowing the process to move forward, changing your viewpoints and fears. Where is your money right now? Where is your love right now? Where is your health right now? Where is your spirituality right now? Where is your mental health right now? Where is your living arrangements right now? What’s the view point on each? And how can these change for the better? Move out of your ‘uglies’ to be minor disturbances and pretty soon they will disappear. And your road will be one of creating life on your terms. Changes will only be growth spurts.


24* Aries New Moon

24* Aries New Moon this month (no moon - the time of dreaming), culminating April 14, 2010. The Aries new moon is about activity. Are you dashing about or do you have a game plan. Are you making money, nurturing yourself, taking care of your health. Where is your stress level. Are you just staying glued enough not to fall apart. What's wrong w. that picture. What do you need to change so that your life goes into a groove again. That your life is the life you dream it to be. You think you've wanted this and it's become what you envisioned but the responsibilities, the duties, the drama can be too much. Allow yourself to think of conclusions, if I attempt this - what will happen, what is the outcome. This is a time when you want to make some fast hard changes, make sure to be realistic so that your path will be comfortable and viable. Does your competitive streak get you to your goals but then there is nothing to show for the life you really want. Time to be competitive with yourself again in the right way and get what you want this time. Life is to be lived and waiting for YOU...........

Journal Questions:

Do you take time for yourself? Hot baths? Vitamin shopping? Eating Healthy plans? Where do you cut corners? Where do you stay within your means in your job, with your family, friends.....do you down size or cut time and yet stress about civilization. Society will not save you....only you can save you. Society gives you opportunities for you to help yourself. And it's by taking small steps to the life you want. Lets write out 20 steps that you can do to start active change. Is it time to get back into your personal power...whether you know what that is or not anymore. Managing to become sincere with yourself and those around you. The meaning of sincere is genuine, guileless, honest, natural, and open.

The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation. ~Henry David Thoreau, Walden


 
Full Maple Sugar Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
The Full Maple Sugar Moon at 9*Libra will culminate March 29, 2010 7:25pm pst/10:25pm est (almanac). The time of using your mind to be in balance. To set in motion your equilibrium, allowing for poise and a steady way of being. Harmonizing instead of polarizing. You are in 'the now'. Assessment of your routines, your job path, your mind set. How do you connect to your inner being and access your personal power. Are you connecting or disconnecting. Connection with yourself begins with feeling in tune with who you are. Are you unfocused or well rounded.  When do you feel confused and side track your success, your love life, your health, and your fitness. Do you sabotage yourself, berate yourself with low self-esteem behind closed doors. Do you tell yourself you want change but stay in stagnation. You could be thinking advancement and maybe speak it, but can you move your ideas into action. The development of your thoughts into process and effort. Propelling forward and forging ahead is always a risk. What if you make the wrong choices and create mistakes, what will be the plan to 'save you'. Life can be gripping, hairy, heartbreaking, heartrending, impelling, impressive, meaningful, mind-bending, and mind-blowing.  And how do you create balance and LIVE. You begin over and over: activate, actuate, excite, inspire, instigate, introduce, lead, and most of all you prevail. Counterpoise and counterbalance what is important and what is not. What is good for you, what is not.
 
Journal Questions:
What is important to you? What is not important to you? What do you try to make important? What are your personal needs? What are your household needs? Are they in balance? What do you need to do to bring them into balance? Where are you not being responsible to you and your needs? Why do you feel stuck? How can you become unstuck? Write reasonable plans and preparations. When you are sad do you counterbalance this? What do you say to yourself? How do you feel? What do you need to say to bring yourself into better balance. When you are angry, how do you come to terms with how you feel? How can you come into better balance when you are agitated or frustrated? What brings you into balance when you are angry. Do you replay anger in your mind? Do you need to reprogram your anger process? Do you feel this is hyper behavior? or Frustration? Are you communicating your thoughts and ideas? (journaling counts) When you are happily excited, do you stay that way for a long time. Or do you only stay excited for a short while and then feel self conscious? Do you recognize what makes you excited? Is it a normal state of being or what are the circumstances?  Can you be happy when you are alone? Why? Are you only happy around others? What do others do for you? What do you do for others? Emotionally and Physically. How do you want to improve? Your reactions, your friendship skills, your happiness level, your living condition? How do you come into balance in these areas? How do you improve your self worth? How do you improve your situations you find yourself in? Family situations? Work situations? Love situations? Health situations? What will bring balance in these settings ? Give yourself workable solutions. All problems, all quandaries are fixable. You can find yourself in uncertain dilemmas and be unsure how to stabilize. Align, focus, mend, put in working order, and readjust your attitude and intentions. Being reasonable and tolerant of your drawbacks, gaining strength and betterment. Never give up, allow yourself to change and grow.
 
Nobody trips over mountains.  It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble.  Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.  ~Author Unknown

25*Pisces New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

25* Pisces New Moon this month (no moon - the time of dreaming), culminating March 15, 2010. The Pisces new moon is about your connection with others on the deepest and darkest level. Where does fantasy or delusions about family, friends, lovers, or co-workers hamper with your need to be real and attain satisfaction in your every day life. Is there emotional pay offs in your mind. Do you have a deep mental state or are you skimming the surface trying to push away any real emotional attachments. Where do you begin and end, mentally and emotionally. Can you feel happiness anymore or is that a thing of the past. Is stress ruining your appreciation of other people around you. Do you take the "No" word to the extreme now and close off everything that could be a chance of communication with others or taking risks. It's imperative to have good judgement over your life, especially your finances and safety, but changing gently is important for our growth. To find fulfillment and contentment is good for the soul. Easily we see the faults of others, how about our own faults. Are you receptive, excited and personally available. How have you closed down. Why aren't you taking the ride of life. Where have you lost being friendly or cordial. Where have you lost romance. Where do lack happiness. You can have them everyday, they are 'free' commodities and advantages. No one can take them from you. You use to have the eyes of wonder. Everything around you was stimuli and sensation, why aren't you experiencing that today. It's time to open your eyes, ears and feelings once again. Take a deep breath and reactivate the lost parts of yourself. It will be worth it. Remember to not only dream and wish, you are here to LIVE.

Journal Questions:

Where am I lost in the deep murk of feelings? Did I stop to think that holding back my feelings for the benefit of pleasing others or focusing on others that don't reciprocate my feelings, would cut off my flow of living a life I deserve to live? Did I trade drama and trauma for rich fulfilling friendships, co-working, family interests and love? Be specific on what you gain and what you feel is lost. What do I ignore in my love relationships? What do I ignore in family relationships? Do I communicate my needs? Do I whine about my needs, hoping that others will hear me? Do I close down and feel pressure to assert myself or my desires? Who makes me feel guilty? What makes me feel guilty? What can I do to bring back my sense of balance? To bring peace into my life? To bring a sense of fun to my life? What do I do for fun? Why don't I do it anymore? If it's not good for me, how can you modify the fun? Are you addicted to over reaction and drama? Do you not feel loved or wanted if there is not drama? Where have you made painful mistakes? In Love? In Family relationships? In Co working peacefully and easy competitiveness? In friendship? You must come back to what you need in life to create security, real happiness, contentment and fulfillment. It's not about how others treat or treated you, its how you react when people around you overreact or sometimes underreact. Maybe in your mind you relive what you should've said or wanted to act out. Or regret that you freeze, panic, or become outraged in intense situations. Where are you staying stuck in that emotion though deep within and not moving on to a next stage. It's a part of life to experience ups and downs, learn to communicate openly with yourself. Time to be honest what is a fantasy, what is a delusion. How can I move myself into participating fully in my life. Write down 16 suggestions on how I can recreate my perspective about others. Even if they've gone on. Write down what your life looks like in 5 years. Family relationships, Love relationships, friends, job, co-working, how you would serve
others, how they would serve you. Where do you live, what does your house look like, what car do you drive, where is your health and self esteem, how much money do you make, what spiritual practice and recreation do you do. The perfect life for you........
                      
Full Snow Moon
By Tara Sutphen
The Snow Moon at 9* Virgo will culminate February 28, 2010, 08:38am PST/11:38am EST (almanac). The time of allowing yourself to shine, be it in the workplace or through radiant health. Being in sync with how you create security and well being. Isn't it time to enjoy your vocation, to create good health from lack of stress as you live your life, your way. If life has lacked luster what would make it shimmer. Would you make a change in your career, or just your everyday patterns and routine. Have you been fighting minor or chronic health issues. Are you listening to your body, to your mind and assessing your needs. Or do you ignore your inner dialogue due to bills you have to pay and the demands of your time and energy. How about procrastination, do you say you'll take care of yourself and your obligations for a 'real life' tomorrow or soon. Do you do for everyone else but you. Or put off today what you could do tomorrow. Do you waste your time sidetracking your goals and personal success due to over-socializing or hiding in activities such as excess television or media related activities. Are you a good judge of how others squander their time and lives. What are the essentials and non essentials of your life, or do you know. Mistakes are made when we don't go with our natural flow and tune in to what we wish for and require. We live an invisible agenda, we can act comfortable and repressed or we can confront our feelings, risk our time and energy and grace ourselves with vitality and fortitude. Choose your health, it will lead you to people of strong mind and bodies. Choose to learn and grow, it will lead you to choose wisely your career or job. And if you must work at a job that doesn't suit you, it's never too late to begin what does satisfy you. It might not happen immediately but it will develop if you set goals. You are only a step away from living the life you dream.......

Journal Questions:
Are you confused about what you want to do as a job or career? Are you confused on how you got to this place that makes you feel boxed in? Why do you feel boxed in? What little steps can you start to do to get yourself out of your ruts? Are you depressed? What has brought about your restlessness, anxiousness or depression? How can you fix your emotions? Can you detach? Can you make commitments? What do you feel are your strengths in life? What are your medical problems? Are you passive or pro-active? How are you healing yourself? Is there anyone to talk to that understands your health problems, frustrations or sadness? If not, why? and if so, who and how do they help you. Write down the advice they've given.If it's several people, write their names down. They can be Dr's, Therapists, Parents, Family, Friends --- Are you following any advice? Can you remember what their advice is and write it in your journal? Or do you have theories on how you might be able to bring yourself out of issues or the doldrums. What would allow you to advance? Are you procrastinating? Saving your aspirations to act upon them some rainy day or down the road? What makes you excited? Why don't you decide to alleviate any sign of unrest the minute it happens to you? You know upon the planet there are many modalities of healing. Maybe you need to start taking care of these issues before they are problems. There is always a way out of any situation, be it your health, how you make money or your emotional security. You must choose a direction and slowly go the course. Don't put off tomorrow what you can do today. Your life is about Now...not yesterday or tomorrow. You can do it.
 
25*Aquarius New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

25* Aquarius New Moon this month, culminating February 13, 2010. The Aquarius new moon is about intellectualizing your need to be seen in the world and by others. How do you want others to take notice of you. It can be a talent or a deed. It can be about being loved for you, "being yourself". Maybe it's for your sincerity level, enhanced charisma or being held special in some way. Could you be loved and admired for all sorts of things you don't fully understand. Or are you not loved enough and question why. It could be that you push people away to test their endurance and seriousness. Do you confuse romantic love with general everyday love or respect. And if you aren't feeling loved or appreciated, where are you allowing yourself to be disheartened. You may feel you've become a wallflower or blending with wallpaper. Even if you are overly busy, you may be spreading yourself thin blending with mad dash anxious society. We shouldn't have to be overt, whine or wail to be noticed. Usually quite the opposite if we want to generate friends and natural fulfillment, the first gesture would be to take the focus off yourself and express simple manners, or gestures of connection. Kindness for kindness sake. It's the start of your spirit being fulfilled by others who in turn will fulfill you.

Journal Questions:
Do you put your best foot forward when meeting new people? Or do you stall and feel awkward? Why? What do they have that you don't have? Where do you lack confidence around others? What do you find likable in yourself? What do you think others see as likable qualities in you? What do you learn from others? Do your expectations run high regarding others? How high? ON: Your family? Your love partners? Your friends? Your co-workers? General passers by? how do others enhance you? How do others inspire you? How are you disappointed by those close? How are you enhanced by those close? Do you have a hard time sustaining long term friendships or relationships? How could you change your viewpoint to fulfillment? How often are you hard on yourself during the day? Do you say to yourself 'that was dumb, I'm stupid, what was I thinking, that sort of inner banter? Do you build yourself just as much. Can be simple, I'm looking healthy today, I like when I wear that color or smiling at yourself in a mirror. Self acceptance. People may disappoint us over and over, but it is wise to work on not disappointing oneself. Sometimes we are asked to leave others behind in our life. Be it by rash or beneficial decision, it hurts and may not feel right at the time. We can feel like we are failing. We need to pick ourselves up by our bootstraps. There will be success, there will be failure in all that we do. Keep moving forward, living, breathing, hoping and loving. It's how us humans roll.
25*Capricorn New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

25* Capricorn New Moon this month, culminating January 14, 2010 23:13/11:13 PM.PST/January 15, 2010 2:13 AM EST (Farmers Almanac). The Capricorn new moon is about looking for ways to gain the comradery and benevolence of others through warmth and lifestyle. What trends and mentors stimulate your mind. It's time to reach into your subconscious and find the hearty goals you once had or laid to rest. Looking deep enough to uncover objectives or a mission. Asking yourself. Have you been going with the status quo. Are you making effort in creating money or opportunities for yourself. Are you looking for love in all the right places. Are you creating the fulfillment you need. Its time to be formulating ideas toward devising a 'whole life'. Making effort to satisfy your accomplishments. It can be that money comes into your sphere, but is it coming easily to pay bills. What would you enjoy doing that generates income. You know if you are gratified or not in love. Do you stumble lost over sensory of everyone and everything. Are you tuning in or tuning out. How out of the fray are you. Are you feeling as though you are in a boat all alone out at sea. Or on a whole ship with too much frivolity. Or sitting alone, stuck and not knowing which way to turn. How do you set back on course toward your ideal goals. There is no running away from ourselves. It's only returning to a balanced state of being. Spark insight to ignite imagination and inception. What are others doing to give you that rush of competition, and helping you step up to the person you long to be. Sometimes others can help us make our lives less complicated and maybe even grand. Instead of confusion, look to stability. Instead of a morass of ideas, look for a few good ones. Instead of complaining, look toward solutions. Instead of inspecting others faults, look to their strengths. Instead of depleting energy on your faults, look to your strengths.

Journal Questions:

Do you feel alone? How much of the time are you lonely? Why? What holds you back into making real connections with others? What do you feel is real connection? What would you talk about with this connection? Is it only physical closeness? Are you afraid to be alone? Are you afraid of NOT being alone? Are you afraid of lack of privacy? How do you make yourself invisible? Dress down? Don't answer the phone? Lack of social interaction? How do you make yourself seen? How do you speak to others? What do you talk to others about? Are you an "on and up" person most of the time? Do you entertain others? How do you think others see you? Do you know when to give advice? Do you know when to comfort others? Do you cross social boundaries? Do you not get near to asking a personal question of anyone about anything? How are your intimacy skills? Can you keep secrets? Can you artfully help others with their problems? Do you treat others how you want to be treated? You may be the most talkative person and never ask for what you need. Or you may be someone who needs too much. Are willing to pull your part of the weight in friendships, partnerships, or your career? You can meditate and call in your human angels to help you when you are suffering. You know the difference if you are acting spoiled or actually have a wretched life. In any case, there needs to be feelings and emotions recharged and a physical change. If you are feeling lonely and unloved. There are coffee and tea houses at every corner, maybe it's time to risk and ask others out. Or for established couples to take the time for some comradery. Make it a goal not to complain if you are dissecting society, or one's person. Speak of furthering your mind, your body, your spirituality, your environment or your city. To establish intimacy we must listen to others and agreeing not to disagree. If you find yourself in disharmonious situations, what are you learning? You can figure out what serves you and what doesn't. Be honest with yourself. You are a clear thinking human, there is No Confusion.

Full Long Night Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Long Night "Blue" Moon at 10* Cancer will culminate December 31, 2009, 11:13am PST (farmers almanac). A Blue Moon is when there are two full moons in one calendar month. Also this moon will be a partial lunar eclipse, only visible to Europe, Asia & Africa. The Umbral shadow will cover 7.6 percent of the moon's surface. Eclipse's are about change or letting go, it can be to bring something exciting or illuminating into your life. The time of New Years Resolutions, you may as well be clear on your intentions and really be in the spirit of good and great change instead of letting life whip you around. We are in the darkest days of the year, dig deep within yourself and bring to the fore those dreams and desires. Your feelings and sentiments need to be examined to see where they block your life. How do emotions clog your ego. Is your ego stumbling these days. Are you able to accomplish in your everyday life. Where don't you feel good about yourself. Why are you letting these feelings hide instead of dealing with them and bringing them out to examine and rectify. Why wouldn't recognizing the lost and hurt feelings be enough to help us in life. Maybe they can. Perhaps it's kissing them better and putting them back deeply inside our soul as knowledge and wisdom. Conceivably it's about reactivating our trust.

Dig, Dig, Dig out those sordid agitating to despairing thoughts and wounds, it's your time to create your new ego and the base on which it rests. Where does your soul and your ego sit within you. Why is it not resting in the most comforting place. It should be on a glowing feather soft nest, not on a bed of nails. Did someone remark recently or long ago about your words or deeds - Call your self esteem back. Did someone wound your soul - Call back the shards and your confidence. Did someone not love you enough - Call your love back. Did you give too much to others and they didn't acknowledge or appreciate you - Call your expectations back. Did you fear - Call back your courage. Call back the lost parts of yourself, they are yours after all. You have come to create the best earth life you can, begin to activate your life-force and wholeness into your trust center. You give because it is an honor to give, you love because it is your legacy to have and to hold. Remember your mind is clear, there is no confusion. Bring back the lost parts of you.

Journal Questions:

What is your ego? How big is your ego? Is it as big as your soul? Or is your soul gigantic and your ego small? or vis-a-versa? Is your ego and soul balanced? How are they in harmony? Are you well balanced. Are you in disharmony ego and soul - wise? Are you personally out of control with your ego? Where? How? Why? What would bring you in balance? Why do you over compensate? Where do you feel less than? Where have you been wounded? Emotionally? Mentally? Physically? Soulfully? Who and what is to say that you are out of control? Be your best judge. Describe your ego and it's base connections? How do you protect yourself and your ego? How do you manipulate yourself or others? How do you gain favor or not? What are your motivations? And Why? Do you feel these are instinctual feelings and reactions? Or are they thought out with good planning and alertness? Where can you vivify your motivations? Where can you sooth your deepest sadness? And carol yourself back into awakening your longings? Where does knowledge and wisdom begin and end? Where will you use your wisdom? Or do you let your soul retain knowledge? Do you use good to great knowledge to further your primitive or radical ideas, thoughts or actions? Where do you risk? Are you clear what you want to gain? Bring the sorrows out, kiss them and put them away. They are meaningful, they can be comprehension in their highest form. Allow them to be thus. If you are to make progress, let it be now. No longer waiting for the right time.

24*Sagittarius New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

24* Sagittarius New Moon this month, culminating December 16, 2009 (Ephemeris). The Sagittarius new moon is about how to reach beyond your self imposed limitations to take the next step in learning and action. You want to flourish to an ideal in your environment, how you see yourself and how others react to you. As you gaze into a mirror, do others see the real you or the fake you. Who do you see. What is your next step. What might you like to learn. What would break you free of any confinement. This 24* Sagittarius aspect is positioned in the tail of the Scorpion, again we are looking at the depth of your ego, the depth of your placement in the world. Have you lost your way or just lost who you might be. How might you turn yourself around and find new direction of acquiring everything you dream. It could be one small step, it could be many steps...it could take effort. Why are you afraid to make the change. There are justifications and excuses but does that bring you to a solution. It's time for you to have results.What is the ideal on how others treat you. Have you taken that step to ever think about it. I'd like to say that you shouldn't care what others think. But on a subconscious or conscious level, there is always someone you care about impressing or controlling. True for all humans. We have some mechanism that says "Love Me", as a universal principle of one. You can feel alone, when really it's a viewpoint on how you affect others and living up to your ideal of a loving family member, a responsible friend, lover or parent, someone worthy of respect. Even if your trust has been fully broken by suffering, and for many this is the case. The glimmer is slight, it is with wisdom and mercy we carry compassion to reinforce the hope of change and growth for ourselves and for others.

As we go into a holiday time, where the offerings are sometimes misconstrued with societies push of consumerism. Not everyone is in a spirit of the whole. Remember to let go of your limitations, what is now will not be in 100 years. You will not have the opportunity to be with the people, places and things that you value or need to awaken for. There are tests, there is truth to be sought and gained. If you don't have resources, you have time and energy. And if you don't feel you have that you always have a smile. Stop feeling like 'things' will help the world. Only sentiments matter, it will be what we take with us when we leave the planet. Find peace within and create your world.

Journal Questions:

What is the real you? What is the fake you? How do you think that others see you? What are your strengths and weakness' that you see? What do other's see of your strength's and weakness'? Where do you allow others to affect you when it comes to making money? Or feeling overly responsible? or under responsible? What do you feel are your justifications and excuses on why you don't achieve? And achieve in what way? Money? Love? Happiness? Knowledge? Rest? Where do you feel trapped? Where do you feel free? What would make you feel worthy? What would make you feel free? What would make you feel good about yourself? How do you want to help yourself? How do you want to help others? Do you live in the right neighborhood? And why don't you? What holds you back from living in the environment you envision? How are you holding yourself back and why? Who holds you back and why? Who empowers you? Who tries to empower you, but you are afraid to take the advice or move into attainment? Is it guilt? Is it shame? Is it fear? Sometimes others see great things for you even though they can't move themselves into position of attainment. Why...write it all out. If you see your feelings on paper, you can recognize these limitations and begin to work to bring yourself into balance. Balance being your mind meets your communication skills meets your actions. You don't just think it, you speak it, and then, you live it....Think, Speak & Live.



Full Cold Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Cold Moon at 10* Gemini will culminate December 2, 2009. A reprieve from over exerting yourself, it's time to be in your head again and make plans on what direction you need to move in. It's not about what others need, it's about you. Communicating what is in your mind and what is in your heart. How will you focus and be successful on your goals. During these holidays make a personal wish for yourself. Write it down, express it in some way...discuss it with your best friend, or a confidante. Move your ideas and solutions into your mind and let the words come into your voice, access and decipher what is good for you. To speak it, makes it real. Note it as a direction.

Many times we communicate our ideas and others do not hear. Do we speak them over and over and others aren't listening or are we not activating ourselves to be heard. It's time to move our very essence into getting the life that makes us happy and healthy. This month is all about communication and coming into a #1 position. You are not a second class citizen waiting for entry, you are already here. Recognize what it is you want and why you want it, is it good for you and why. And does it move you into being successful and attaining security and contentment. Fulfilling your life is a blessing, stop thinking you are looking for something that is non attainable such as a job that you are unwilling to work for, or not listening to healthy choices for your ultimate health and well being. You can't wish for things and expect that they happen magically, it does take some planning and then executing those intentions. Are you ready to move into a wonderful life...or are you just in the pre-planning stages.Why are you stalling. What holds you back.You can't talk it and not live it. As the holidays come, plan to make the best of them. Plan to speak kindly, adjust your attitude and release expectations, as life isn't always the most fair, if you live your own truth you will gain abundance on many levels. Decipher delicate matters so that you clear them out of your path. It's your time for genuine revelation as the New Year approaches. Barriers are overcome if you can recognize what holds you down and keeps you from being your ultimate best self.

Journal Questions:

Where am I saying one thing and doing another? Why am I blocking my own potential? What is my potential? Where have I thought I'm moving in a direction only to find myself in a terrible situation? Explain the situations? Career? Love? Health? What do I feel I'm doing right? What am I feeling I'm doing wrong? Where do I access my plans? Who do I communicate with? Who is my confidante's? Why do I run my problems past these people? Do they help me to understand? Do I feel empowered? Do I feel weak? Do I feel I need to work this hard at gaining footing in my life? What do I do when I am gaining clarity of purpose? Do I feel I live in the right place? Do I feel I have the right job? Do I feel I have the right love life? Do I feel I have the right health? Clearing my mind...who do I best talk to on all these subjects? Who gives me insight? Why do I feel the insight and advice is clear? I know I should make reasonable plans so that my life easily flows in an orderly fashion. I want to talk my walk and walk my talk. Am I truth or folly? Explain. This is my time on the planet? Activation! How do I best do that?

24*Scorpio New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

24* Scorpio New Moon this month, culminating November 16, 2009 (Ephemeris). The Scorpio new moon is about your personal depth of being and coming to terms with how you are responsible to yourself and for others. Activating solutions, speech and action to help those you love. Sometimes it can be how you help and support those not only in your family, but through your community, country or world. It is a calling, as you help and nurture others they help and nurture you. Last month as the new moon was in Libra it was all about your beauty inside and outside, but with this moon it's time to look at the uglies hidden deep within. Searching for recognition of light and life, we may want to hide everything about ourselves that can't come out for others to see. Hiding are idiosyncrasies, wild sex, hate, greed, punishment, grief, sorrow, failure, and self-loathing. It is there in everyone, some rearrange all these feelings to make them less potent and embarrassing. Everyone has trouble and sadness, it is the earth plane after all and as much as we try and run from the weakness' we carry from our soul contracts, we must take time to deal with different changes and stumbling blocks. If we don't, metaphorically, we may go through life with a blindfold faltering on the path.

This Scorpio new moon is not only about you this time though, it's about others and how you act and respond. A person's behavior is never about you, it's about them. Do you take the time to observe before you react. Do you try and hear on a deeper level or see in 2nd sight. What is it that you can say or do to assist someone in their moment of attention, anxiety or distress. We all at times cry out in agony or suffering. Some people may be silent, never ask for help or say a word. We must be aware of them as well as the bellowers or screamers. There are some people who want too much from everyone and everything, remembering.... it's never about you. You are in the world theatre and you're playing a role in a part. Activate to have the inner knowing, when to observe, when to advise and when to act. We are all on our soul contract and agreements, and live our journey. If we are able to see through the darkest parts of ourselves maybe we'll be able to change our lives and those that we love in the best possible ways.


Journal Questions:

What do I think my motivations are? Can I be truly honest with myself? Do I look at the deepest darkest parts of myself? Why are they important? How can I cure this part of myself? Do I always carry frustration and anxiety? When does it stop? When does it end? I find myself acting out, what am I not dealing with and why? Why do I think I might have to die to get out of my troubles? What are my fixable solutions? Why do I feel desolate and alone with a world full of people? Why do I go through periods of self-loathing? Why am I never good enough? What is it that keeps me from doing what I want to accomplish? Why do I test myself over and over? Why do I browbeat myself? Why do I judge others? Why do I feel unworthy? What do others have that I want? Why can't I have those things? Why can't I make decisions to create those situations? What do I feel are my 'uglies'? Give myself a list to overcome these dark parts of myself, bringing them to light on paper. I want to change how I feel about ---? I want to change how I think about ---? I want to change my attitude? I want to help others, how best can I start doing this? It could be that you already do this in the work place. Make a list: Kind words, smiles, small offerings, advice, etc... You don't need to give all your time and energy to others. It's only about making your life worthwhile with your... Family? Friends? Co-workers? Bystanders? People in Business you frequent? Community servers? Nation servers? World Servers? How can I be kindest to myself? Make a list. 15 mins every morning enjoying a hot beverage and resting while looking out a window? Reading 5 pages of a self-help book or good novel? Taking 1 - 2 mins with everyone you come in contact with to acknowledge them and validate their existence? Helping your kids with homework? Talking to your kids? Talking to your parents or relatives? Talking to your friends? Taking care of a sick friend or family member? Teaching someone about your expertise? Learn to please the inner you deep within while you are assisting others. It is one of the fulfilling aspects of life.

Full Beaver Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Beaver Moon at 10* Taurus will culminate November 2, 2009. Much like last month, it's time to exert some energy. You are being nudged even more, stir and shift your ideas and talent into movement. Activate yourself toward acquiring security and resources. Solutions are all around and you make solid choices and move forward. Taking easy steps, one at a time. Most problems and burdens are fixable, it's just making up your mind to alleviate the harsh judgements you give yourself and move into release and relief. You deserve relief...say it over a few times.... I deserve relief, I deserve a reprieve, I deserve recovery........I deserve relief, I deserve a reprieve, I deserve recovery...........I deserve relief, I deserve a reprieve, I deserve recovery.

Your spirit is vast and knowledgeable, you instinctually know what is good for you and what is not. Instinctually means you can feel the necessary direction you need to go. If you are making up all sorts of justifications on why you should do something that doesn't suit you. This can be in any area of your life, don't say yes when you mean no. And if you are being railroaded by circumstances, recognize it and work in a direction to gain the necessary means to create your life. The actual life you want to live. The essence and shine of the moon alights you for the whole world to see. Who you are and what you want. It's time for you, the real you...

Journal Questions:

Procrastination: What areas of your life aren't you handling. Money aspects? Love opportunities? Family time and energy? Career Path? Time for rest or play? Body image issues? Health Priorities? Job assessment? Home or Work projects? Better life? How can you change? Remember --- I deserve relief, I deserve a reprieve, I deserve recovery. What solutions come to mind of these questions? Do you have more questions that need to be answered? Time to know what you run from? Know what and who you have pushed away from yourself? Where you did not deserve the best of love? Or the best career? Or the best job? Why? What has made you unsatisfied? Or suppressed your self-esteem? Where are you only being hard on yourself and everything is okay and perfect in it's own way? But what is not perfect, that needs to be fixed for you? If you need to work on one thing first, than that is what you do. Have a starting place and work from there...but it's time to begin not just writing but living what you have written for yourself. you are writing the stories of your life...the annals of the Akashic.

24* Libra New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

24* Libra New Moon this month, culminating October 18, 2009 (Ephemeris). The Libra new moon is about balance and beauty. The new moon represents quiet in darkness. Time to start being gentle on yourself. Free yourself from would have's, could have's and should have's and start creating the stress free life you need. It starts with you. Where does it say you have obligations out of control to live happily. It's time to slow down, smell some roses, or look out at an inspiring vista, or write in your journal. Take some me time. True beauty, both men and women comes from the heart and is seen in someone's eyes and smile. It is your soul.

Stress has been a big challenge for many people. There are many demands from family, friends, jobs, schools, banks, bills, and the community. No wonder people don't have time to get involved in world projects. Or can't think straight or eat well. We want to someday look back on our live's and see how we lived, did we risk enough, did we love enough, did we really live, did we seek to remain beautiful, did our sense of childhood wonder remain. Is our spirit intact.

A being is not allowed to break your spirit. They could try, but it is yours and only your spirit. It will be whole if you want it whole. You make an effort to find yourself vibrating on that higher level of being. I use the sound of the earth to match the sound with my own. That always works to bring you into balance. No use crying over spilled milk, it's time for fixable solutions in life. Bounty and Blessings are yours by birthright. Beauty is yours to behold, it's not societies model of beauty as you know there is wonder all around you. Time to step up your mojo. Be the fabulous you.

Journal Questions:

Where am I wasting my time and energy? Do I need to make myself a schedule? What might I miss out on if I don't take the time now? Where do I needlessly do errands? Where am I hard on myself? Where have I lost my Mojo? Where is my beauty or handsomeness? Where can I find it? What steps do I do for a fixable solution? Where is my balance? Am I irritated by little things? What am I irritated by? Answer Why.... after each irritation. Where can you find balance with these irritations? There is a quick fix solution, give yourself one for each. Anger is not an option, if you are feeling outraged and abused, it's time to take steps to alleviate that feeling and situation. Where do you deserve that life or karma? Work it out in your head, why is this situation stifling my life and how can I fix it? Why do I care take others who abuse me? What is really going on with my life? Take steps to change.

Anchor yourself with keywords, such as "opportunity or balance or a little meditation, such as the one I lead on the gold coins for 10 seconds. Ground yourself. For that 10 seconds if you don't see the coins, know the coins are there or feel them. I have you stand on coins to bring prosperity on all levels into your life, no dissension and failure. You are a clear thinking human, there is no confusion.

Full Harvest Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Harvest Moon at 11* Aries will culminate at October 4, 2009 03.11/03:11 AM PST (ephemeris)
This is a month to take action. You've been emotionally clearing your fears and problems for awhile and now is the time to take steps to activate your life force and your stamina. You move your physical body to attend to desires, allowing solutions as you extradite problems. Even if you've been in a morass of confusion, this is a time to make your way out of it. If you are physically sick, do something about it. Make a decision on treatment and move in a direction of wellness. If you have been struggling with money, it is time to access your situation and move into proactive movement. What area of your career or job is not getting you anywhere, take a step in either achievement or stability. Be clear on what you need. Are you satisfied or struggling in your love relationships, what needs to be changed, are they realistic compromises and fixable changes or do you need to be honest with yourself in some area. It may not be the other person, it could be you. Face it, either fix the problem by communicating on a real level or being honest with yourself. If you have children, move into constructive parenting. Basically it's all about fixing your problems in the now...not putting them off for another time.

You don't need to be enthusiastic or aggressive, you only need be assertive. Why are you leading a mediocre existence? You don't want to have 10 to 10,000 regrets on your way out. Maybe you wish your family, community, your city, your country, or the world were different. Instead of complaining or feeling helpless, what can you do to to make a difference? Your family, lovers or friends can be inconsistent, and maybe even mismatched with you. Incompatibility can create confusion and feelings of being alone or lost. Maybe you are not the only one having these thoughts, they could be having a similar experience with you. Everyone wrestles with their likability, their lovablity, and their capability. There is a difference with matters that are truly important and trivial pursuits.What matters on your personal roster is your health, your career or job, your love relationships, your family and friends, your spirituality, your contentment and your happiness. That is the course rules without solid directions . We don't get everything right, not everyone lives up to our expectations, but we begin again. Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, dust off and gain determination.

Journal Questions:

How is your life? What do you like about it? What would you like to change? Where would you like to live? What job or career do you want? Why don't you have that job now if you work at something else. Explain why you don't have the job you most desire? Do you know what job you most desire? What could you do to make your job more fulfilling? What attitude do you carry around most of the time? Too busy, mad, sad, smiley, goofy, sullen, quiet or another attitude? Approachable or Unapproachable? Do you carry this attitude at home or only in the work place? Are you the same personality in both places? What are your areas of procrastination? What do you resist? Who do you resist? Do you step into action? Delegate well? or Ignore work, home life and slowly get it handled? What matters of your job or employment are frustrating you at this time? How do you solve your problems? Do you curse and blow up, calmly start handling the problem, sulk or ? Take one issue at a time --- write the issue, then write a solution or what could be a solution for you if it were possible. Financially I see myself as stable? Do I make solid financial solutions? Do I have a knack for good decisions regarding money? Am I well versed in what I want and why I want it. Do I take great care in handling my money? If you haven't handled your money well -- When did your financial problems begin? Why do you worry about money? Does this affect your health or make you anxious? Money is always a fixable situation. It could take effort, there might not be a fast solution to some money issues, but there could be patience added into an equation. Budget money so that living comes first. It's important to pay for your shelter and a vehicle, food, next then... all the extras. If you are living beyond your means, take time to access your situation. You don't need to waste your time keeping up with the Jones. Gain a quality life that brings you contentment. And if you have the ability to leap of course do so, but know when you need to take a rest from overtaxing your time, resources or energy. Write out your budget? Fix what needs to be done around your living area. Start taking care of the kids, your parents, or your pets better? Write down how you can help your family or pets. Step up and take responsibility. Also know when you are doing too much. When have you done something for yourself lately? What hobbies do you like? Make a schedule and add the hobbies or self care to the schedule. Add romance and quiet time. This is your path and journey and it's time to create the life you want to live.

25* Virgo New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

25* Virgo New Moon this month, culminating September 18, 2009 at 15.45/3.45pm pst (Ephemeris). The Virgo new moon is about refinement and clarification. The new moon represents quiet in darkness. At this time you have the ability to allow what you haven't noticed, or what you need to learn about yourself to come to light, to gain answers to your questions and resolutions to your problems. An element of 25* Virgo is the enhancement of psychic ability, your mind working at optimum level, intelligence and ideality. What are you seeing as imperfect and would like to fix? Your monetary struggles, relationships, blocks, health issues, or spiritual confusion. Or is it a time to be more creative and learn new things. Is there a goal you want to work toward, constructing one plan at a time. When you have the formula to elevate change and growth, you can than apply the knowledge to all areas of your life. If you want to improve, where do you begin? On yourself more likely than others. Even if you are finding yourself in utter chaos, you must change yourself and your attitudes before emotions or situations will recover. You can only begin to assist others if you are above their level in question. Examples: Taking monetary advice from someone who complains of no money or lack, an overweight person who gives dieting tips but isn't active w. the tips themselves, a criticizing person on love and friendship. you are a boss or parent, etc... You can't spout what you don't adhere to. Although being supportive and offering anyone understanding and solace is what we deem best in others. Are you listening to others who try and point you toward greater vistas or a steady life? Or are you stubborn or in denial. Quietly think deeply and listen to your most truthful self. What are fixable problems surrounding you? What comes to you as an observation in your asking, there are solutions to every worry, a pathway to desire, you begin a search to create wholeness for your heart, for your mind and intellect, for your soul and it's callings. You are master of your destiny.

For your Journal:

What does clarification mean to you? What does refinement mean to you? Do you sometimes not feel that you are clear in your motives and intent? Others around you and their motives and intent? Have you been happily surprised by yourself or others? Unhappily surprised? When you work toward a goal, are you able to reach that goal? Clearly what have you done or do well? what have you done wrong? Do you need to refine some manners? Be sincere when speaking with others. Know when to speak and when to stay silent. Activate your psychic ability to know when you need to be in touch with your feelings and others feelings. Do you see your life clearly in every way? What natural abilities to succeed are you blind to? What or who do you put rose colored glasses on? How do you become more refined in life? What issues are you not seeing clearly? What ailments are you blind to? Write a few sentences or paragraph on each subject, what is good for you, what is bad for you. "I SEE Clearly: work, success goals, love nature, manners, station in life, psychic ability, soul goals. Another set of paragraphs: what are lovely parts? What are the problems? In: health, eating habits, success, career path, housing, environment, community, love interest, dating, marriage, happiness, children, family, critical judgement, wisdom, spirituality. Another set of paragraphs: If I am not happy, what must I do to reach contentment? Where am I fulfilled in life and what takes away from my life and why? Television, pc, career, work, bad habits, lover/mate, family, friends, events. Your life is about gaining clarity and what you allowed to be taken away and what balance you need to bring back. Fine tune how to bring yourself into alignment. Know Thyself, for this is your time to create a beautiful life.

Full Corn Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Corn Moon at 12* Pisces will culminate at September 4, 2009 13.04/1:04 PM PST (ephemeris) This is a month to explore what makes you tick, examining your phobias, fears and secrets. It's time to recognize what could be freezing you in place or holding you back from accomplishment, money, love relationships, a lifestyle, your basic aims and desires. At times you may find yourself blank on why you are immobilized by your anxiety. Or your life is set by unalterable commitments. To change is painful, but it's time to process the why's and with diligence and action to seek some deep seated answers. What truly makes you happy? Or is being unhappy okay? And do you recognize when you are carrying unresolved drama or issues. When is unhappiness, not okay? You may not seek that overt happy feeling, but life should be content on many levels. Sit and meditate, or write lists. And if you can't seem to detect what it is you can't release, you could try a past life regression or hypnotherapy session by cd or mp3. You could open up a psychology book, take some quizzes. Gain knowledge of your strengths or weakness' through your astrology. You are on a search, where is your most powerless self hiding. Hiding being the key word. Where do you begin to look. Clues would lie in your mental anguish, lack of physical motivation, or spiritual unrest. Have you been having feelings of despair or devastation. Or is it an overall restlessness and a focus problem? Insecurities abound, feelings of inadequacy or inferiority, even lonliness and isolation. You don't need to speak about it with others as long as you are responsive to awakening the parts of yourself that need some overhaul or inner sanctuary work.

Inner sanctuary work is your inner light and the temple of your body, mind and soul. The personal power that sits within you and your life force, it is the god light. In the eyes of God you are a perfect human. But we allow society and our cultures programming and conditions to change our perspectives on ourselves and our surroundings. Your turmoil can be totally worked into societies false sense of propriety. Go deep into your soul knowledge, what is your Akashic duty to yourself. Maybe you don't know. Have you been ignoring your self worth. Have you been evading what life can really mean to you if you fully participate in it.

27* Leo New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

27* Leo New Moon this month, culminating August 20, 2009 at 07:03 pst (Ephemeris). The Leo new moon is all about creation. All projects, all thoughts begin in the darkness and come to light. What different emotional and physical scenes do you create. Whether they be comedy, crisis, excitement. Even a farce, melodrama or histrionics. What reactions are you seeking to push yourself and others forward or push others back. Positive and/or Negative drama. Time for reflection on what you need to secure for yourself within the perimeters of friendship, relationships and work partnerships. Have you been a team player or lone wolf. And metaphorically and physically where are you going, what are the clues. We may not have the whole picture but there are many signs to interpret. We can decipher problems we have, but what is some of the good things that you are working towards, health, learning, communicating with others, communing with nature, happiness and career opportunities, and financial stability. What people, places or things are helpful and/or annoying. Do you ignore it all and hope it goes away. You are in the vibrational soup and even though you'd like to be your own sovereignty, you have to interact a certain amount with others. Others can frustrate, inferiorate and hold judgement on you, and you of them. How do others benefit you? What makes you playful? What makes you dutiful? Who creates in you an act of courage? Who creates in you the act to participate in life? Who knocks you off balance? Are people asking, ignoring or shouting for you to wake up. In their way, creating drama so that you can see your life and it's callings? Or are they just annoying or actually in your way? Is it a time in your life where you are stepping forward or stepping back. Are you taking into account what you have learned and what you are learning. Are you growing in ways that help you or are you on the hindering path...always struggling with money, relationships and setting goals to keep. Do you create harmony every day? Are you stirring up emotions and cross purposes for yourself and others. Why are you emotionally struggling? Why are you physically struggling? Sometimes our best intentions for others become the worst advice and avenues for others. Sometimes our best intentions for ourselves need accessment and an overhaul. What advice do you have for yourself. Can you take your own advice?


Journal Questions:


Who gets on your nerves? People who love you too much or who you love too much? Or are you moody? And why? Do you contradict yourself? Where are you being unkind to yourself? Why are you unkind to others? Who are you proud of in your family lineage? Proud of friends? Proud of teachers? Proud of scholars? Proud of celebrities? Your role models? Who are you emulating in life? What traits? What characteristics? What honor? What bad traits? What rebellious thinking? What successful thinking? Where are you falling short on your ideas? Where are you gaining footing on your ideas? Who helps you become more of who you need to be - whether you are in synch w. these people or not...who helps you and why? Who do you want to protect? Who wants to protect you? Do you feel support in the world? Do you gain support by being a part of the world? Do you recognize your good qualities to offer others? What are these qualities? Do you gain money by listening to others? Do you gain self respect by listening to others? Do you gain advancement in some way? Are you being a worry wart, always freaking on what is to come? Or are you in a stall time...no time for improvements, no time for making more money, no way out toward happiness? What are your ways out? Why you will or won't take the risks? Give yourself grand excuses on this as it needs to be clear for your growth. When you understand you...you can gain greater achievement. Surpass those blocks and any small thinking. Don't allow others to be a barrier but helpers along your path. Integrate true support. Really tune in to your messages around you. What can you do to help yourself reach new levels. Stand in your personal power.

Full Sturgeon Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Sturgeon Moon at 13* Aquarius will culminate at August 5, 2009 21.56/10:56pm PST (ephemeris) The Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse will culminate 10:40PM PST. This is a month to plan for your future, opening your mind to greater possibilities. What would you like to explore and talk about upcoming, what new found classes or knowledge would you like to learn. Where can you find excitement in everyday living. This is a time to lay on a blanket and daydream into the sky, take a little rest here and there and be fanciful and impressionable. Grant your imagination to soar. Enable your talents and how you would like to achieve. Permit solutions to easily enter your mind to solve any worries or problems. See and know they are fixed and easily solved. Allow deep and fervent love to permeate your body, mind and soul. Dream.

It's a time of creating magic, walk your talk and talk your walk - it's not to be disagreeable with yourself or others. Create inner cooperation of your motives. What do you really wish for. Are you afraid to dream or have hope? Have you lost trust and lost your way? Drop the repression you've been feeling and sieze wonder for a better tomorrow. You won't lose control of your routine, you only give yourself the option to improve your life. No more wandering...find balance when you think deeply and passionately about what you want to accomplish and desire. Your dreams can become a reality if you speak up or write it out and take steps going toward a goal. You may be sidetracked along the way, but modify and be willing to be open to change and more ideas that will take you to your desired objectives.

Many times we lay blame on others that get in our way, or that the economy is not working in our favor but we only create stumbling blocks for ourselves. This is your life and it is entirely up to you to create the life you want to live. There is infinite ideas in the universe, there is a world full of people that must be served or helped in some way, there is love everywhere and in everything. What holds you back is the unwillingness to allow yourself to have an aspiration in your mind, and then create movement, step by step (no leaps) in action. Allow yourself to have time in your life to make things happen. Allow yourself to expect the very best of every day. Don't be discouraged, it is a fact your ancestors made it through thick and thin. It will be your legacy too. Keep moving forward toward creating your purpose. It's time to really LIVE.


In your Journal:

What are your daydreams? What are your ideals? Places, People, Things. Who do you admire? And Why? What do you love about your family? Friends? Relatives? Home? Environment? Country? What is your nations motto's that you like? What would be your dream career? And Why? What do you do now that is in sync with this dream career? What would move you toward achieving the career you want? Would the money sustain these dreams? What are your daydreams about money? How you would spend money? How you would make money? How you handle yourself with money? What house would you buy? Where would you live? What you would buy your family and friends? Would you live in the city or the country? Dream about your perfect look and body weight. Write and daydream about it.What is perfect health? What makes you happy? What daydreams make you really happy? What seems to be attainable? What seems to be unattainable? And Why? What do you hope for? What do you long for? What do you pine for? What are your simple dreams? What are your complex dreams?

Visualize and Imagine the love in your life is immense. Don't hold back, every area is filled with beautiful love. Everyone, Everything..... is great love, tranquility and serenity. Your bank accounts, your assets, your savings are filling with more and more money. Your life is full of security and faith. You trust your mind and spirit to make wise decisions. Your mind if full of good if not great ideas. Your body is strong and healthy. You have courage and endurance to accomplish your goals. Your career is satisfying and purposeful. Reach. Risk. Rally

29*Cancer New Moon & Solar Eclipse
By Tara Sutphen

29* Cancer New Moon this month, culminating July 21, 2009 at 11:36 pst (Ephemeris). This is the second Cancer New Moon this year. The first one was all about beginnings and this second Cancer new moon is all about endings to start fresh and anew. Time to shake your life up a little and start putting some of your ideas into action. Begin diligence, be cognizant and knowing, and thrust yourself in trust. Stop holding back, you really need to learn to trust yourself. What are your motives, and why do you seek challenge after challenge? Is it to succeed or to fail? Take each stage as being observant, awake and solidly moving into wise choices. Creating your reality and begin the steps of skill, recognition, and achievement. Quit being bored or hazy about life, you must begin helping yourself on an emotional, spiritual, and physical level. To be the best person at your career, you must activate your role to become proficient and qualified. To gain love in your life you must adjust your thinking and feelings and procure that you deserve great love. To lose weight or gain better health, you must actually make the effort toward being slimmer and well. To be the best Mom, Dad, sibling, friend, you have to step into the role of what you want and need from others and what they need from you. Be clear though that what they want from you, works for you, and moves you into understanding and comradery. You don't need to be all things to all people, and you certainly don't need to settle for a mediocre life. Try not to hold back emotionally and/or physically on what 'you' really need or want. Your attitude should be realistic, center yourself with responsible antidotes and mix a little dash of fantasy and magic with that life path. It's not about leaping into a fantasy, this is about gaining faith in yourself. Last month you opened to love and be loved, as in true love and real love. This month it's all about how you are going to risk and create your game plan. With the solar eclipse, it's time to dream big dreams, realistic ideas, and work toward a meaningful life. Sorce intent and prayers, it is a time of change and 'sparks the new'...cast away your problems and worries, let go of what no longer serves you. This is your journey and it can be full formulizing and strategy. Believe in you, believe in your life and it's blessings. The universe is speaking and clearing the way....

Journal Questions:

What is the drama in your life? What? Who? Why? Where? How? What is the crisis in your life? What? Who? Why? Where? How? What is fixable solutions? What are random problems? What are real problems that need decisions and solutions? What is important? Who is important? Why are they important? List everything on a scale of 1-10 - 1 being most intense and 10 being least. What can you live without? Who can you live without? /What can't you live without? Who can't you live without? Why? What steps do you need to bring up your trust level? Who do you trust and why? Do you trust yourself and why? Where are you lacking trust? How willful are you? How determined are you? Where have you received mixed messages about trust? Parents? Friends? Teachers? Nation? Media? World? Where do you take responsibility for your ideas, words and deeds? What ideas do you have to create a better life for yourself? What is the game plan? How can you better your job or career? How can you create more of a satisfying life for yourself? How can you make more money? How can you make more comradery or love? How can you be more active with your health and wellbeing? How can you move forward in life without much effort? What effort would you make? Do you expect little changes? Are you expecting a whole overhaul? Where do you start? Explain how that would be the best start of "the game plan". Why do you need to change? Create balance and watch your world come alive again with wonder and possibilities. Renewal...

Full Buck Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Buck Moon at 15* Capricorn will culminate at July 7, 2009 6.23am PST/Prenumbral Lunar Eclipse will culminate 6.40am PST. This is a month to find your strength and steadiness, time to move drama or chaos into workable solutions. What has been out of control has practical ways toward a resolution. No need to hold on to "how things won't change" or "standing by, expecting people to treat you right", gain a foothold, start moving in a direction that best suits the security and the peacefulness of your life. The eclipse is unseen by the naked eye this time, the sun is too far away and only shadows a quarter of the moon. Lunar eclipses are about something going out of your life at this time, it could be hardly noticeable or it could be something that you haven't been paying attention to, but needs your immediate attention to rectify. It's time to observe your actions and reactions. How are you interpreting confusion and commotion. Do you wait until it subsides or do you actively seek clarification and order. Move to dissipate bigger problems and obstructions. The time on the planet is your time, you have the power and ability to change the things that seem impossible. Trust yourself. Call in your sentinels and human angels to guide you and protect you. There are answers to your questions, if you are ready to listen to the answers. And then act on those answers, unafraid and with confidence.



In your Journal:

What drama have you been experiencing? What chaos seems to be around you? What confusion do you find yourself in? How can you clarify the pathway? Take one dramatic problem at a time (money "necessary bills over peripheral bills", career, love, wisdom, happiness, etc...), write out the answer, and then step into an active solution. What is the messages that you are getting? Try to clear up all confusion. Can you decipher the answers to your life's questions? What pressing problems have been on your mind? What have you found to help those problems? What creates worse problems? Are you aware what path NOT to take --- In relationships? With your family? In your job? With your goals? What path seems clear to take --- In relationships? With your family? In your job? With your goals? Is your mind in overwhelm? How are you handling your stress? What precautions are you taking with your health? Are you getting carried away in the confusion? Or are you working for solutions? How meaningful do you find your life? How meaningful do you find your job or career? As you meditate, bring your shining light all throughout your body -- remember there is no fear.

Full Moon Ceremony

1* Cancer New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

1* Cancer New Moon this month, culminating June 22 at 16.36/ 4.36pm pst. Time to concentrate your need to treat yourself as #1 in your home and open your heart to love. You are deserving in matters of heart and hearth. And you can step into your ability to create stability and please yourself and others easily, if you allow yourself to try. Last month you worked on your speaking ability, as in articulating, conversing, and discussing. This month it's all about how you are going to change your personal energy in your environment to gain more clarity and happiness in your life. A time of quiet reflection and working out how best you can alleviate any self doubt or self loathing. We are always our own worst enemies. Making unconstructive remarks about our appearance, functions, and intelligence. It's time to start working toward acceptance and being agreeable, allowing yourself to be amiable, alluring and even bewitching. When you look in the mirror say something nice. A first step of self actualization. No more non-self days, time to turn up and tune in to your energetic pathway. How are you going to move on this super highway of life, it's time to take charge of your destiny and know that love exists if we allow ourselves to love and receive it. As a mirror, cordially treat others as you would want to be treated. Unlock this block this month.

Journal Questions:

I may have a perfectly good self image. List those qualities I really like about myself? My mind, my face and body, my social skills, my love skills, my job skills? But when I'm not feeling so good about my person: Where in my body does it feel bad when I think of myself? Where in my head do I feel bad about myself? Where do I feel bad about love? Where do I block myself in love? Where do I block my deserving factors? What is my success rate in love? Why is that - what attributes or behavior do I engage? Am I putting myself down all the time? Am I acting ugly to myself? Acting ugly can be saying a mean word, or acting overly critical and can lead eventually to maiming, scarring or health issues. What are my expectations about love? How do I want to be treated? And how do I treat others? What can I do to live up to my expectations? When will my thoughts turn toward softer ideas? Or will I ever allow that? What would be improvements for your person? More knowledge and sharing that knowledge? Can I unlock my sad thoughts? How can I cast away doubt and fear? How can I bring about my abilities? How can I improve? Where in my life do I need the improvements? Improving your life in little ways will result in better self esterm and allow the passion and wonder to once again come into your life.


Full Strawberry Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Strawberry Moon at 17* Sagittarius will culminate June 7, 2009 at 15.13/3.13pm PST. This is a month you are to think deeply on the quirks or barriers you have with other people. Be these foibles in your love relationships, friendships, work relations and/or families. Review and contemplate why you have dashed expectations and overwrought sentiments of these persons from time to time or every day. Notice when you are seeking the need of approval from others. As humans we sometimes hold on to who and what we desire no matter if it's good for us or not. We either bulldoze our way through life or we break down. We need to remember that life doesn't have to be that way, we are to yearn for zest and longevity. We are to make our lives joyful, not just in the ways of conducting ourselves but in every vital aspect .

This is a statement to remember: "Rejection is My Protection." Before you were born you asked for protection, stability and strength. Do you listen to the patterns of your life or between the lines of your sentiments, complaints or conversations. Be in conscious awareness of what you are saying on every level. If you continually spiral toward an unhappy life ... you could find yourself there. If you want no responsibilities in life, you may not be able to sustain the reliability to be a good friend or romantic partner. Be careful what you ask for as you might go to seek in others what you yourself can not or are not willing to give.

Sometimes situations put our lives in a stall or everything seems to be going wrong. It's okay to detach from drama and/or chaos but know when you are disengaging from your life and livelihood. At times we all lack trust or respect in others, or think that they hold us back in some way. Let your nervous energy spur you on to greater success and stature? Anger, anxiousness and frustration can be powerful movement in your life and your accomplishments. There are those relationships that we think we don't choose, such as our families. And the dynamics with chaotic others we find ourselves experiencing. These involvements could surpass non compatibility such as lawsuits and crime. What are we learning at these times. They can be hard or sad lessons. Be willing to listen and respond to your needs to seek answers. There is always a bigger picture. A direction of the blueprint. If you haven't been listening to the gentle life instructions than the big tests come to move you drastically into position. Clear your mind.... Tune in, take steps to resolve or curtail any dissension.


Journal Questions:

Who can you count on in your life? Who do you love? What is your reason of loving? Or do you just feel love? Who do you love that disappoints you? Who do you resist in your life? How many true friends do you have? Of those that disappoint you what are your expectations of them? Who champions you? Who do you champion? What and how do you tell those you love that you indeed love them? Do you show it? Do you speak it? Do you hear them? Do they hear you? How can you make them feel more worthy of life and it's blessings? Write generally about love , friendships, relatives or work relations? Work relations: Are you taken seriously for your contribution on the job? Are you hearing others? Are they hearing you? Could you make more effort in the workplace? Can you make more effort toward getting the job or career you truly desire and finding happiness in life? What exactly have you learned about yourself in regards to communicating to others? Are you fair? Are you honest? Are you meek and don't speak up? How can you assert yourself upcoming? What could elevate you to full conscious mind and development? Write out: how you could become a better lover -- How to become a better parent/child/sibling -- How to achieve better success with and through others. How can you motivate instead of discourage youself and others. Are you clear about your motivations. What do you want and need from a relationship? A friendship? Work relations? Do you try to work reachable solutions with others or do you let confusion and being muddled discourage you? Are you continually trying to salvage friendships and relationships that aren't worthy of your time and energy? Do you really listen and tune in to your life? What would make frustrating relationships and friendships more palatable? Aggression is not an answer, but assertion can be.

3* Gemini New Moon
By Tara Sutphen

3* Gemini New Moon this month, culminating May 24 at 9.12am pst is all about your speaking ability, as in articulating, chattering, conversing, discussing, echoing, enunciating, expressing, orating, verbalizing, and vocalizing. You are to put it out into the universe on what you require, time for you to talk. You can also write out your aspirations. After you talk to God and the Spirit guides, it's time to talk to people who hear you and really listen to what you are saying. It's not about bullying or boring others, it's about activating your voice to clearly convey what is important in your life. Easily attaining your needs and securing your place in the scheme of all things. Native Americans have always thought the White Man talks too much. Maybe it's time you were inspired to produce meaningful words to not only yourself but to others. You are to communicate on every level of Body, Mind & Spirit. You are to make lists, create outlines, write in your journal, and find expression. Assert yourself, be clear, definite and exacting. What do you want and why do you want it? And... Always speak your truth, especially to yourself.

Journal Questions:
When you speak, is anyone listening? Who listens? And why do they listen? What is their motive or emotion for listening to you? Do you give to others when you speak or are you taking away their time, or their energy? Do you speak of Ideas, Events or Personal trivia? What would be an area that would be meaningful to converse on? What would you like to convey on a more professional level? What would you like to speak on in a more personal level? Do you know when to be serious? Do you know when to play? What are your joys? What are your sorrows? What are your desires? What do you want in the way of material possessions? What do you want in the way of mental strength and capacity? What do you want in the way of attaining knowledge? What brainpower do you have for making money? Creating ideas on making money? What do you want in romance? What do you want in family relationships? What expectations do you have in friendships? What do you want for your health? What do you want to do for a career? And if you have a career, are you happy with it? What career change do you need? What do you falsify? And what is reality? What white lies do you tell yourself? What bold face lies do you tell yourself? What truths do you tell yourself that aren't necessarily true? Such as when you are too hard on yourself? Why are you hard on yourself? Tell yourself nice things. Tell others nice things. Write out a list of these nice things to tell yourself. Make a list of what you want to change? Are you too quiet to allow yourself even to ask the universe what you hope to want in this life? Speaking: This is the second stage to manifestation --- once you have an idea, you speak the idea with intention and then you move to bring your ideas into creation and active play. To begin...

 
Full Flower Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Flower Moon at 18* Scorpio will culminate May 9, 2009 at 1.03 pm PST. This is a month to really take the time to think deeply about change in your life. There are mysterious and hidden aspects of your mind, your body and your soul. They could be parts of yourself you just don't want to recognize. It's painful to change and yet we must to gain a foot hold in our every day life. What is our drama? What are our fears? Depression, hidden agendas, unhealthy motivations and daymares/nightmares play a big part in keeping us stuck. The agenda becomes a routine instead of a forging ahead. You know how sometimes you make no progress in life and you feel rooted in a frozen or stilted state, unable to get past the money, relationship or health issues. You could be surrounded by complaining spouse, family or friends. Why is that? What can you do to change "you"? So that all these circumstances change around you? Unlock the unconscious to become conscious. Create choices. Create change. It is time... your time...


In Your Journal:

What are your idiosyncrasies,? Look closely at your behavior -- what serves you when you are happy? What serves you when you are sad? How do you perceive how others treat you? Are you paranoid? Are you in a pity party? Are you sane or insane? What are your sane thoughts? What are your insane thoughts? How can you stop the insane thoughts? What would work for you to get these thoughts out of your head? Stop allowing them? Journaling, writing fictional stories,poetry or creating some kind of art? Exercising? Or being functional and useful to yourself and possibly others? Charity work, or just helping out your friends or family members? Are you putting too much pressure on your mind and not enough energetic action into attaining your goals? Do you have supportive people around you? Are you too dependent on others? Where do you need to become more psychologically aware about yourself?How are you tuning into your mind? How are you tuning into your body? Or are you obsessed about what others think of you? Obsessed with your appearance? Is it that parents/society have emotionally scarred and scared you? Where have they put barriers or hidden expectations on your life? How can you remove them? Is it a hard or simple process? Where do you make your life hard? What areas? Explain this in detail to yourself in your journal. How can you release this emotional trauma? What can you change? How can you change you?

5* Taurus New Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
5* Taurus New Moon this month, culminating April 25 at 0.24/12:24pm pst is all about your personal creativity, your goals, romance and beauty. It's a time to access love and romance. Also to ponder on your resourcefulness with your problems and progression of every day life. The innovation of gaining insight. A solution or idea would come from a conscious psychological process.  Is the problem solved straightforwardly or is there a creative solution with steps that might alleviate further stumbling blocks? You may not give yourself much of a chance to be inspired.  It's not nervously anticipating the next difficulty. It is wise to look at those who already handled specific goals or problems and succeeded. Creativity is not only associated with Art and Literature, it should be a part of your daily life. You deserve to make the best choices for yourself. Even though we create difficult situations for ourselves, there is always a way out. Always.....
 
Journal Questions:
Last month you were to journal about your bravado and learning to take action from your ideas and plans. This month is a dreamier month full of serendipity and attitude adjusting. No more being a mass "fear-ball". To get into the mood of creating, you must allow yourself to open your mind for possibilities. Producing movement in your mind instead of stagnation. Am I allowing the space in my life to solve my problems? How am I blocking myself? Why am I blocking myself? Do I work myself into a box instead of working myself out of the box? What drama is in my life? What would fix the drama? I remember when life was easy, why was it easy? What am I doing wrong in my life now to feel anxiety? Why do I have anxiety? What hobby, recreation or craft did you use to like to do that you do not do anymore? Am I allowing my talents or interests to fall by the wayside while I overwork or overthink my life? Where do you incorporate joy into your life? What is your best personality trait? What is your best physical feature? What did you use to like about yourself? What do you like about yourself now? When you begin to like yourself again, other's will like you. Where have you given up on yourself? It is time to recreate or appreciate yourself? A never ending process, we forget that we came here to create love with our own heart and then with others. Complement your ideas, art form, talents, love nature, and children. Write out those complements. You may feel your lost in a sea of worry or indecision but you can find foundation and formation. Dream those beautiful dreams. Creation starts with our inner muse and moves onto outer amusement. Enhancing the spirit of you, the mind of you, the body of you -- problems can be solved, they've been for thousands and thousands of years.

Pink Moon

Full Pink Moon
by Tara Sutphen


The Full Pink Moon at 19* Libra will culminate April 9, 2009 at 11.57am PST *. This is a month to take physical action and learn to master something you want to change about yourself. How to like yourself as you would love, care and support another.  A conscious change...it could be if you want to start exercising, you start the routine. If you want a new job, you take a course study of interest. If you want to change your self-esteem you read that self-help book or write your thoughts, adding solutions to your worries or problems. We can complain, but what is the solution? Libra is all about support, balance and trust. Others can only support you when you support yourself. What if you decide to sit back during this time? Haven't you already been frustrated enough with your life and circumstances? Nothing gets better until you make some effort. And if you don't have money, there are books to read, and on the internet there are classes to take. Still don't know what you want to do, or what to do or where to turn? CLEAR YOUR MIND. Remind yourself that you are a clear thinking human, there is no confusion. Stop the merry go round going on in your head and take action. Beauty surrounds you...embrace life.

 

In Your Journal:

What limits you to be all you can be? Where could you compromise? Compare how you live now to what you really want? Are you living closely to your expectations? Lower than your expectations? Higher than your expectations? What are your expectations? With what you have written are they reachable expectations? How do you modify? Where are you dreaming? Lofty wishes? Solid wishes? Reality? Where are you creating your own reality? Are you taking time to think and plan? Are you moving too fast? Are you moving too slow? Are you thinking too fast? Are you thinking too slow? What is your love life like? Where do you need to take steps to improve your love life? Improving relationships? Improving friendships? Improving family? How can you beautify or improve your personal appearance? It could be just to smile...

6* Aries New Moon this month is all about your bravado and learning to take action from your ideas and plans. Worry can paralyze you in fear. In your mind you wonder, "What if I don't make the right choice? What will happen to me?" You are to access your willpower. Not every choice in life will be the right decision, but at least you made a decision. It's important to live life on your terms. And being the best judge for yourself comes from relaxing your mind and taking care of you, and then allowing your life to unfold into place. It's about balance and harmony....your mind meets your communication skills meets your actions. Don't rush your life or be afraid, take each step calmly and bravely.

Journal questions:

Last month you wrote on your inner feelings and insecurities, this month it is about forging ahead. Even though this is the dark time of dreaming, you are in the light of day and must face all that has been holding you back. You know that you want love, excellent health, money, a great job, happiness, fun, outer beauty, inner beauty, wisdom, and expertise (etc, add what you need to work on).... okay now......how will you get "it"? And if you have "it", how will you keep it? Have you been falling into the trap of complaining instead of managing answers to these life goals? Why complain? What does that solve? What risks must you take in life to save yourself? What do you ignore about your job? About your health? About your abilities? Your current expertise? Or current level of hobby expertise? Do you stay silent and afraid? Or do you rush in where only fools go? What are your foolish ideas? What are your realistic ideas? What is your foolish idea that could be turned into a realistic idea? Are you happy with the way you make money? Are you happy where you live? Are you happy with your health? Where do you need to improve? Is your nervous temperament stable? Your blood sugar? Your eating habits? Your energy level? We came into life having a number of insecurities to work out, are you mastering your life? Change is constant, and if you are going to keep progressing, do so on your terms. It's not about panic, it's time to focus on developing the real you. It's about movement and determination. There are no limitations but the self imposed.

Crow full moon
Full Crow Moon
By Tara Sutphen

The Full Crow Moon at 20* Virgo will culminate at March 11, 2009 11.38am PST. This is a month to leave your secret, locked, or pent up insecurities behind. Your nerves could be creating stress. Your fear could be positioning your life into a no win situation. Your unwillingness to take care of your mind, body and spirit may be affecting you. When in your life will you take care of "you"? You may think you care for yourself, but do you? Create yourself to be the person you long to be. You may say I take care of others before myself.  It's wonderful to think of caring for others, but you must be strong enough to take care of you and then others. Life will move on with or without you. Change is constant.
 
 At the new moon, which is total darkness and the time of dreaming or deciphering... this whole month you were to go deeply into what is your secret self. The full moon, your personal spotlight asks you to bring to light an actual plan on what you want to do for your health and for your job. Are you unhappy with your appearance and your overall health? Do you keep ignoring a health issue? Are you disgruntled by the ways of the medical or financial establishment? What limits are you creating in your life? Do you need to take steps toward another career while you figure out your money situation and jobs you find yourself in? There is always a way out...it only takes small steps to change your viewpoint and change your circumstances. There are people who fall into fear of situations, phobias or environment. Allow yourself to be clear thinking, no more confusion and start creating the life you want to live.
 
In your Journal:
Answer the above questions as well as the below questions asked. You are to be truthful with yourself. The moon phases are to clear and process your mind to enhance your time on the earth rather than getting by or putting up with life. You feel less "out of control" when you search for meaning on what doesn't work every day. It's easier to search out the complaints, but let's create solutions to fix those complaints. What is your career and do you find meaning in this work? If you are only in a job, are you finding worthiness? What generates worthiness for you? Your Money making? Your own happiness? Other's happiness? Being able to pay bills? Does it bring enough pay and personal satisfaction? What might you need to do to bring in more money? What might you change to bring satisfaction? Are you sidetracked at accomplishment? or Lack of accomplishment? What are you sidetracked by? What do you feel guilty over? And who or what blocks you? Yourself? Your household members? Your parents? Your lack of a career choice? Your insecurities? Your unwillingness to change? With your health and appearance? What is holding you back into becoming the person you long to be? Is societies way of seeing you important? Personal hygiene and being pleased with little things about yourself if an act in self care. When will you care for yourself? Tomorrow or in the future? When you have more time and money?  Your health issues may be big or small --- they can sometimes be cured by tuning in instead of tuning out. There is always a cure. You attained it on the earth and we live in a large world with no limitations - you may not know the cure but there is one to be sought. And for some reason you decide you are the seeker. You are a seeker of health and wealth. It is time to seek that which holds you down or holds you in place. You are to live and to prosper. It is the bounty and blessing of the earth and it is your's by birthright.

6* Pisces New Moon
by Tara Sutphen
 
6* Pisces New Moon this month is all about your soul goals and psychic ability. To assess the dark path and to find your way out. Where you need to be going in your life and the whys. Analyzing deep seated fears of the self: the resentments, disillusionments, shame and lack of worthiness. Mental blocks, emotions, feelings - how you are able to gain forward movement even if afraid. When the path seems dark, use your intuition to "feel" where you are going? Access if a decision is right for you. Most of the time you will feel it in your gut.
 
Journal questions:
 
What do you hide from? How are you hiding? Who are you hiding from? Yourself? Spouse? Relatives? Boss? success? Local authorities? Government? God? List each and explain why you would feel the need to hide? How is your emotional nature at this time? Do you feel balanced or out of control? What are your fears? what are your phobias? Are you worrying unnecessarily about? what churns in your head? Does what the media say affect you? What your parents or authority's say affect you? What other's in general think about you? Do you say "yes" when you mean "no"? Are you afraid of being alone? Are you afraid of failure? Are you afraid of social situations? And why? Are you initially fearful and then become comfortable in social situations. If you were giving your advice to someone else what would it be? Can you take your best advice?Can you assert yourself? What feels comfortable when emotionally sticking up for yourself?  Take time to tell yourself you are okay and to start moving out of any fear...moving mentally, emotionally and physically forward with small steps, being gentle on your mind and heart.

Snow Moon
By Tara Sutphen
 
This Full Snow Moon has an eclipse on February 9, 2009 at 20* Leo, culmination 11:50 PST. The eclipse will be an Appulse, where the penumbra, partial illumination or a shrouding occurs of the moon. An eclipse occurs because the moon and sun are close to the moon's nodes. They align with earth to cast a shadow. The moon crosses the ecliptic or the path of the sun across the sky and against the background stars.
 
The moon this month is about the expression of self and addressing masks. Observations of reactions and temperament, knowing your comfort level. What masks might you be wearing to feel reasonable with and around others, which masks are false or even phony. Awareness can stop the missteps, cease wasting your time, focusing upon what makes your life function. Emerging into becoming more meaningful, supportive of self, and taking notice of reinventing relationships, friends, family, activities, career, health and happiness. Moving your attitude toward the productive force instead of self sabotage.
 
Write in a journal or choose a few masks to analyze about yourself. Looking to uncover quirks, hidden feelings, strengths, and/or weaknesses. Here are a few to start with, many are not included in the collection. 
 
sad mask, naive mask, helpless mask, nervous mask, Shy mask, Over controlling mask, over capable mask, passionate mask, loud mask, insincere mask, jealous mask, leadership mask, crazy mask, comedy mask, congenial mask, uncooperative mask, anger mask, frustration mask, fear mask, anxiousness mask, worry mask, lack of barriers mask, intellectual mask, unreasonable mask, deep character mask, shallow mask, imprisoned mask, nice mask, can't say no mask, the spiritual mask, in control mask, out of control mask, being needed mask, perfectionist mask, slob mask, rebellious mask, material mask, beauty mask, ugly mask, mean mask, hateful mask, no trying mask, over risking mask, under risking mask, overly loving mask, cheerful mask, everything is always ok mask, desperate mask, needy mask, beggar mask, manipulation mask, manipulator mask, sober mask, lying mask, envy mask, dishonest mask, ignorant mask, avoid mask, commitment mask, earnest mask, security mask, broken promises mask, promises mask, antagonist mask, protagonist mask, angel mask, devil mask, follower mask, organizer mask, ally mask, good intention mask, neglectful mask, scorn mask, better than thou mask, rejection mask, bitter mask, skeptic mask, contempt mask, disbeliever mask, believer mask, praise mask, insecure mask, pride mask, sexy mask, dominant mask, subordinate mask
 
You often see what you don't like in others, but what don't you like in yourself? Are you cringing? When are you most authentic? The masks you wear can be stimulated with certain people, or situations and instigated in your workplace, inside home or only outside home. Do you change your personality to fit your needs in a given moment? Are you comfortable mixing with others or by yourself? What masks seem effective for you? What disguise do you think you need? Energy unblocks when you open yourself for gentle but objective criticism. You want to form judgement on what no longer serves you in life. With an eclipse there is something being taken away or left behind.  Choose to leave behind the unreal parts of you.

moon eclipse





New moon 6* Aquarius January 26, 2009 It culminates 16.54 PST and with it is an annular solar eclipse - too far for a total eclipse instead it will surround the dark new moon with a narrow ring of light. This new moon is about the future. How you are holding up in body and mind for a good future and if you aren't holding up that well, it's time for a reassessment. This month is a time to journal about what is no longer working in your life as far as your health, and your job is concerned. What do you need to change to secure a better future. With all eclipses...you must give up something to attain a better tomorrow. Since it's 6* Aquarius it means you can give up bad habits and unsustainable behavior. Create a mindset for a plan. 
 
Journal questions:
Future plan/outline. What is stagnant in my job? What is stagnant in my lifestyle? What is stagnant about my health? How can I improve my health? Do I need to change my eating habits? Do I need to exercise? Do I need to make a learning effort to achieve a job or career I want? Am I afraid to risk? Am I afraid of being different? Am I afraid to believe in myself? Can I create more energy for my future? Mental energy? Physical energy? Do I even know what I need? Am I ignoring or living in a fog about my future? What works for me personally. Knowing a game plan I can start to follow. What should I consciously choose and really be mindful, reading what I write. What am I willing to really do? What best advice would I give another? Can take I my own best advice?


Deep Within

New Moon 6* Capricorn
By Tara Sutphen
 
6*Capricorn New Moon on December 27, 2008. Only 5 degrees from 1* Capricorn Pluto orbiting in our universe. Pluto is your personal jet fuel, lets say you use that extra earth/universe energy and create your dreams? Since the extra-extra energy is tied so closely with the new moon (total darkness) and Pluto, go really "deep" this month. Deep within your mind and brain for answers.Try to unlock what holds you back in areas of learning, growth, work, career, goals, accomplishing those goals, and success. This is a month of revelation....you are to meditate and journal on what is your purpose and your service to others on the earth.
 
Questions could be. When do I feel most alive? When do I feel I am helping others? When do I find peace? What job do I like? How would or does my job help others besides me? Does my job now make me feel whole and worthy? What would create more worth in my chosen career? Am I making enough money to survive? And why am I happy or unhappy with my job? Do I hear what others tell me? Do I ask for their opinion and take it openly what they feel is best and right for me? Am I living my truth? And how can I best live my truth?
 
Homework should be on my desk by January 27. haha

This full moon is at 21*Aries culminating PST 5:03pm according to my ephemeris. Aries bringing you back to yourself, your energy level, your essence in life - the passage of gaining ones strength to ready for winter. A time to act in your own best interest, learning to be reliable, level headed and accountable. What changes would make your world into the life you want to live? This is a time to stop thinking "things" over and take the necessary steps to achieve what will help you survive your life. Be it love, security, goals, happiness, good health, wisdom. Remind yourself that there is no more confusion, you are clear thinking. It is a time to be in balance with your wishes and your actions, to communicate in a right way instead of an old way. On the lowest level it's a time to be clear in your life and create change. Take the step.

Happy Full Moon :)
22*Pisces

The 22* Pisces aspect for the month is recognizing and mastering the hidden parts of your spirit. Talents, art, death, dying, unhappiness, inadequacies, soul agreements, reincarnation, deeper meaning of life and your place in it is connected to this aspect. Start a plan to overcome your conflicting feelings and insecurities. Your life might not change overnight, but it will begin to change for the better.


Happy Sorcing ---Sorcing is an ongoing process where we let the Astrological influence of the moon be our guide. Meditate and feel the moon's potency. A time of praying with your feet on the ground, asking for clarity and understanding in order to get what you really want and need. Learn to extend your energy into proactive behavior.


You are clear thinking, no more confusion.

Full moon/eclipse whopper
Current mood: adventurous
Category: Dreams and the Supernatural

Tomorrow night about 12:32am is the full moon culmination incl w. a full eclipse at 1*virgo. Tomorrow night the meditation should be about what holds you back in life. Where you need to be seen and take a stand in money matters and career. The eclipse usually brings enlightenment of some kind. What you don't need anymore. What you are holding on to that's unnecessary as the real reason for your advancement in what you want...or what you really want to go for and to stop procrastinating. See the path clearly. Stop confusing your mind. Time for that epiphany.

General for everyone for the
month....Happy Full Moon

Happy Full Moon 3*Aries
Current mood: awake
Category: Parties and Nightlife

Full Harvest Moon
By Tara Sutphen

3*Aries Moon Culmination 19.46 EST

Know it, Speak it, Want it... Todays full moon is about speaking your truth.Overflowing in the communication area per se. A month to take time to think and communicate on what you want, not communicating about what you don't want, no complaining.
But it's all about you. Focus in "to the real you". Having a viewpoint about people, places, things, romance, health, success, happiness, sentiments, ideas, talent, solutions, understanding, decisions, wisdom, bantering, etc...What works for you and what do you need to change.

You're not to take other's wants and needs personally either this month. Have an open heart and mind, just as you expect others to be about you. Stop being a wallflower, turtle in a shell, shy, afraid, too courteous, tactful or simply confused. If you can't speak it, write it, or talk to yourself in a mirror. Clear your confusion.You do know what you want.It may not be realistic or mutual to another, but you will at least know what you need, require and may even be greedy for. This aspect is not about being practical. Let your imagination run wild. Let your words echo out into the world. Laugh and feel joy. This journey in life is your's afterall.

New Moon 17* Scorpio Man your Journals....
Current mood: thoughtful
Category: Dreams and the Supernatural

NEW Moon 17* Scorpio November 9, 2007
 
It is all about being introspective of yourself and appreciating the depth of your mind, living, loving, wisdom, your secrets... Taking this month to ponder or journal, deciphering and understanding the sadness of missed opportunities, false setups of friends, trust. Where we might trip ourselves when wanting to go forward in our lives. Shyness, being afraid. What we are fearful of.... process this for the month until the next new moon.

culmination was PST 6:23pm

Instead of being fearful of the unknown it's time to expect wonderment and magic of surprises...if you expect the worst, you'll get the worst....if you expect the best , you'll get the best. Bad things happen, but we can change our viewpoint and the outcome of circumstances. We are the creators of our personal journey. As we clear away the debris we've claimed along the way, we begin to live our real life....the happy prosperous one. Prosperous in Love, Wisdom, Understanding, Great Health, Success, Accomplishment................

AHO,
Tara
