Welcome to 2020. We made it through the year of the Empress, the year we made our return back to femininity. Many of us (re-)connected with nature by observing the Earth’s cycles and caring for our temples. Even more (re-)discovered LOVE and defined it by their own terms. Self-care was essential in 2019, and these lessons will echo into 2020 as we boldly step into the year of the Emperor. Resilience, stability, security, and willpower are all highlighted for the next 12 months.
Thank you for all of your support this past year. It’s almost hard to believe that 2 years ago I was hand-writing my cosmic reports for my individual orders - My Neptune in Capricorn was slow to change to a blog, preferring old methods over new, but I’m so happy I made the leaps from handwritten note to full post to classroom and finally, to IGTV. I honestly never thought I would be speaking, writing, and teaching about astrology and ancient wisdom when I started Virgo Moon in 2014. At that time, all I wanted to do was to help people deal with their physical pains, and my offerings were material. As my confidence grew, so did my authenticity, and I began to weave my passion for astrology into my Earthly remedies - your reception to my evolution has been my driving force and I am beyond grateful for our connection. My heart is warmer and wider than it was this time last year and I have you to thank for that.
Mother Moon is transiting Taurus, the Fixed Earth sign of the Zodiac, ruler of 2nd House matters. She will be ingressing into our Mutable Air sign, Gemini, tonight, enhancing our mental states. She is currently in her Waxing Gibbous phase, a time for the collective to refine their growth since the Solar Eclipse on the 26th of December. At this time it is essential to practice patience, as emotions before this Friday’s Lunar Eclipse in Cancer are running high. Cancer is the Cardinal Water sign of the Zodiac, and it’s energy is the emotional foundation of our souls. Cancer is good at evoking emotions...its energy is dictated by the Moon for a reason - it sways and pulls at the heartstrings. Cancer is incredibly skilled at drawing in whatever it’s emotional tides are seeking. Wherever you have Cancer in your chart is where you have this ability, and this is where you’ve felt considerable pressure to transform. The North Node of the Moon is currently in Cancer, so we’re being pulled towards her energy, but at the same time, we have extraordinarily heavy Capricorn energy which is the polarity point of Cancer. So, we’re finding ourselves in situations where we need to balance compassion and discipline. Big shifts are happening all over the world due to these heavy energies. Consequences for past actions are being faced and we’re being asked to step up to the plate, to take accountability, and to make peace with ourselves and others. The Cancer and Capricorn axis is connected to our parents or guardians and traditional structure systems - so the themes that are coming up are entrenched in our upbringing. We’re being challenged to transform these structures, many of which have created toxic patterns in our lives. This is incredibly difficult work - though, I hope you can find comfort knowing that you are not alone in this energy. Perhaps you want to reach out to friends and family and find a bit of comfort being together, but remember - you cannot drink from an empty cup, so if you need to be pouring love back into yourself and not others right now, that is absolutely acceptable. Do whatever you need to do to feel well and balanced right now.
The Lunar Eclipse in Cancer will be exact on Friday, January 10th at 2:21 pm EST. Pay attention to what is brought up, be intentional with your words, and release whatever is no longer serving you.
