Natural Awakenings Rhode Island


The full moon on December 12 will occur in sidereal Taurus in the lunar star of Mrigashira. By the light of this moon, hidden or dormant artistic talents may suddenly become illuminated. Now is the time to explore the artist inside you, or if you are already and artist, now is the time to optimize the creative gifts this moon will bring.

Mrigashira is the proverbial trail blazer, giving us opportunity to break paradigms and innovate something amazing. It is also asking us to respect and love our mother more than ever this month, whether it be your mother, someone else’s mother, the earth-mother, a mother-like figure or your job as a mother.

Mars also has a significant impact on the full moon this month, which, on the bright side, will increase passion, productivity, desire and possibly give rise to some steamy romance. On the dark side, Mars on the moon can cause mental aggravation and Taurus can be stubborn. To avoid conflict, soften your words and thoughts by practicing loving kindness and meditation, but also trust yourself to be assertive and set your boundaries.

Global and personal secrets may be revealed before the new moon. Taurus can also be sensuous and earthy, so make time for a luxurious massage. Finding balance between the head and heart can be stabilized by daily meditation, nature immersions and gratitude.

The new moon on Dec 26 will occur in sidereal Sagittarius in the lunar star of Mula. Mula goes to the root of any issue. It can cause drama because it will tolerate sugar coating or delusions. Now is the time to address the deepest truths and use this as an opportunity to reinvent yourself or change the way you choose to see things.

This new moon is part of a solar eclipse. It can be a time of new beginnings at the soul level, but not an ideal time to sign contracts, get a new job, hire someone, buy a car, get married, open a business, start a new romance or anything new. Anything started during an eclipse will have “no legs” and may not last. It’s a great time to do soul-retrieval past life regression, soul healing, forgiveness or release core beliefs that no longer serve you.

Eat clean, light, vegan and healthy on the solar eclipse and for two weeks following until the lunar eclipse is over. Take extra special care of your immune system during the sensitive two-week eclipse window by indulging in a steam-bath, sauna or sweat lodge. Avoid making any major decisions until it’s over and get more rest than usual. Remember, all is well in the universe.
