Waning Moon at 14º 51’ Capricorn
Apr 4, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Apr 01, 2021

As we arrive at the 3rd Quarter Moon phase of the Waning Lunar Cycle, we meet at a crossroads on the journey. It is here at the mid-point between last week's Full Moon and next week's New Moon that we enter for a moment a pause in the timeline. Which way will you go? Which path will you choose? Take a breath, be still, look around, reflect on where you are and what you see.

Full Moon at 08º 18’ Libra
Mar 28, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Mar 25, 2021

The Venusian Moon. In all its grandiose splendor, the Full Moon piques magic, mystery, and wonder in our hearts. To gaze upon her, bathe beneath her, and go out to get a glance, we can’t help to stare. We are touched. She provokes our psyche, riles our moods, tempts our instincts. We are moved. La Luna has the power to shift the tides and make waves not only on this Earth planet but within each one of us!

First Quarter Moon at 01º 39’ Cancer
Mar 21, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Mar 18, 2021

The Equinox has arrived, and a new season now ushers in a fresh new light and perspective. Birth is the tone, and we are each in its hour—a dance between the old self and the new self in the Mystery of it all. The pains, the glory, the fright, the exhilaration, the confrontation with Life & Death. We birth in the form of new projects, realized dreams, new relationships, greater awareness. We birth ourselves.

New Moon at 23º 04’ Pisces
Mar 13, 2021

by Kaypacha | Mar 11, 2021

The New Moon occurring at this degree sets an "overtone" for this lunar cycle as one of working dynamically with the process of individualization. AND subsequently, the integration of us, as individuals, into both society, and beyond society, with "All That Is."

Waning Moon at 15° 42′ Sagittarius
Mar 5, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Mar 04, 2021

This next week's cycle brings us through the Last Quarter Moon Phase, into the Dark Moon, leading to our next New Moon – in Pisces on March 13th. Culmination and closure. Where in your life is this occurring? The waning half-moon is the last week of the lunar cycle before we begin anew once again, and it always signifies the "Crisis in Consciousness" stage.

Full Moon at 08° 26′ Virgo
Feb 27, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Feb 25, 2021

This past two-week New Moon cycle moved us through an incredible pile-up of Aquarian energy – the archetype of the Gamechanger, the Truth Sayer, the bold cold mic-drop. Aquarius initiates the impulse to break free from the past at all costs, and with five planets there, including the Mercury Retrograde cycle (now direct,) moving forward, beyond, and even up, up and away, has been the momentum.

First Quarter Moon at 01° 20′ Gemini
Feb 19, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Feb 18, 2021

The First Quarter Moon occurs halfway between the New Moon and the Full Moon. This is a time for building and investing because things gain speed and momentum. It's the moment within the Lunar Cycle when taking intentional action is key for further advancement. Conflicts of interest are likely during the First Quarter of the Moon because it forms a Square (90°) between the Sun and the Moon, representing an imminent tension that needs to be addressed with no delays.

New Moon at 23° 16″ Aquarius
Feb 11, 2021

by Kaypacha | Feb 09, 2021

by Kaypacha! Having gone through an evolutionary cycle that began with Aries breaking from the past, growing, and maturing to fullness, the cycle now begins to wane, giving more than receiving/building, and is now less attached to achieving, but instead rises above to look ahead toward an as yet unknown future. The Aquarian energies of this Moon cycle are greatly amplified, being accompanied as they are, by Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn, all forming a powerful stellium.

Waning Moon at 16º 07” Scorpio
Feb 4, 2021

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Feb 03, 2021

by Gonca Kalabalik. On Thursday, a new energy portal opens, a crisis in consciousness, requiring "organizing ability in terms of broad social ideals, to reform and transform and to work hard for future goals." This is the way Dane Rudhyar explains the energy of the 3rd Quarter Square Moon. This energy speaks well with the portal of the Aquarius/Leo axis. It encourages us to dream big, find the power of action, and fly.

Full Moon at 09º 05” Leo
Jan 28

by Jessica Dawn Bourque | Jan 26, 2021

by Gonca Kalabalik. My word for this week is Ambivalence; having conflicting emotions towards something. The week starts off on an emotional note as waxing La Luna transits Cancer, getting ready for Leo's full Moon. This is the middle point of the cycle, where we face the intentions that we set at the new Moon, and make a little balance check. It is ok to not be sure which way to go! It is ok to have evaluative inconsistency.
