General Overview – Full & New Moons

The moon and its position within our celestial sky holds a powerful frequency that affects our day to day beingness here on Earth.  The moons electro-magnetic frequency as it waxes and wanes each month effects our physiology, our emotional/mental responses and spiritual potential.

The energy from the New Moon up to the Full Moon is gradually building in strength and intensity;  thus the New Moon is a great time to set your intentions, write down goals or begin new projects for the forthcoming cycle.  Consider sitting in ceremony or personal meditation and affirming to the Universe your intentions & inner-most heartfelt desires for the cycle.

From Full Moon to the New Moon the energy is gradually decreasing in strength and intensity… thus is a time to release and let go of any areas in your life that no longer serve your higher purpose.  The Full Moon is a perfect time to connect in ceremony (personal or group), light a candle and release/transmute through sacred ritual that which no longer serves.

June 30/July 1 – Jupiter & Venus Conjunction

jupiter-venus-conjunctionOn the evening of June 30 (July 1), the two brightest planets in our night sky Jupiter & Venus will make a conjunction (appear very close together).   The last time this conjunction took place was over 2,000 years ago (approx 2BC) and thus is speculated that this conjunction is what we refer to today as the ‘Star of Bethlehem’.

The best time to view this conjunction with the naked eye would be toward the Western horizon at sunset and into the early evening.

View Earthsky.org for great photos from around the world of the Venus/Jupiter conjunction.

I found the following poem on www.pachamama.org  You could also use this poem as a meditation or reflection for bringing about the better world that we know is possible as you connect with the Jupiter/Venus conjunction:

Lessons From the Universe

I look up to the heavens.
I see the brilliance beating from Venus’ heart,
Earth’s sister,
Morning star,
Our closest neighbor amidst vast infinity.
Jupiter’s massive body
Spins rapidly, millions of miles away
But visible to us here on Earth,
Simply by reflecting the Sun’s radiance in the twilight sky.

A firefly twinkles near my cheek. Then another, and another.
The trees sparkle with fireflies’ mysterious moving, fading, brightening glow.
Alive, we are alive,
They seem to wink at me.

The ancient ones know, and always knew
That we are all one.
We are made of the same stuff, the same
Jupiter, and Venus, and me, and the moon, and the sweeping willow tree
And the fireflies
And the ground beneath my feet.
We are all one.
We are all
With the vibration of that initial
Moment of being
Moment of

Jupiter offers wisdom
Social change and improvement.
I feel its power.
It pulls at human hearts, from 550 million miles away
Saying “open your mind” “nothing is impossible”.
Venus is love
Sacred feminine energy
Music, art, dancing … All that sets our souls free with joy.
All that raises the vibration of life itself.
The morning star, Venus heralds a new dawn
For the consciousness of humankind.

We inhabit a planet
Full of magic
(for life is the truest magic of all)
Where the moon and sun appear the same size
Where Jupiter of Wisdom and Venus of Love converge
Into an awe-inspiring spectacle
Where the stars twinkle all around us
Even in the daytime.
A planet where we have everything we need
If we will simply
Love one another
And love our sacred Earth.



July 1/2, 2015 – Full Moon

Thursday, 2 July 2015 – 2:20 am UTC
Thursday, 2 July 2015 – 12:20 pm AEST (Australia)

Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Capricorn (Earth) – Practical, realist, reliable, hard worker, cautious
Cancer (water) – nurturing, family, sensitive, emotional, moody, psychic

This Full Moon in the earth sign of Capricorn (practical, hardworker) is reflecting the light of the Sun in the water sign of Cancer (family, emotional, homeloving). Whilst Capricorn is hardworking and gets things done, it can get us caught up too much in process and bring rigidity to our lives… but with the balance of Cancer the emotional element will highlight intuitive/creative new ways of moving forward.

This Full Moon in Capricorn is also closely aligned with Pluto in Capricorn.  Pluto is the sign of transformation and when in Capricorn is about breaking down the rules, regulations and outmoded ways of being… with the Full Moon igniting this energy expect a very emotional/passionate/soul searching time for many.

So expect great inspiration over this full moon, and the energy and dedication to follow through.

Moon & Sun in CANCER
Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Cancer (water) – nurturing, family, sensitive, emotional, moody, psychic

This Cancer new moon is a time to look at yourself honestly, and give love to every nuance, action, thought and feeling.  Simply mother yourself, and acknowledge yourself as already whole and perfect… you are simply LOVE!

Cancer is the sign of the Sacred Feminine, the creative Mother energy and the nurturer.  This new moon offers an energy to peer within and view our relationship to our ‘Mother’ within, our sacred intuitive natures (whether we are male or female).

What can your ‘Inner-Mother’ teach you at this time… and allow that wisdom to be imparted from a place of unconditional love of self.

During the ‘Divine Feminine’ Cancer New Moon we transcend the egoic need of power struggles, destruction of life and pain and suffering.   It represents a return of the feminine, in order to balance the male and female polarity in humanity and foster oneness.  Oneness in our hearts and minds, oneness in our physical and spiritual selves, and oneness of our selves with all creation.

During this Cancer New Moon each of us holds the potential to ‘Dream the Dream’ of the Goddess, and create harmony and loving union of the Masculine and Feminine breath of LOVE.

This new moon represents a time to honour your needs… in order to fill your cup full and over-flowing to be of service to others.   This new moon represents a wonderful time to also nurture your home life.. maybe spend time gardening, cleaning up clutter, organise a family gathering or make a scrummy meal for loved ones.

Moon in AQUARIUS  Sun in LEO
Moon – past, Intuition, unconscious, emotions, nurturing, feelings
Sun – now, Identity, consciousness, self-esteem, expression
Aquarius (Air) – Humanitarian, determined, individualistic, rebellious, independant
Leo (Fire) – Leader, affectionate, generous, outgoing, stubborn, authoritative

What a great energy this will be to  get out of your stuff  ‘woe is me’, ‘life is so hard’ etc..  and take the focus off yourself and really look at the bigger picture of creation.

You have the power to use your thoughts, words, energy, actions to creating enduring and peaceful change on this planet… this is time to take ownership and responsibility of what the word SERVICE really means.

Leo brings in leadership, inspiration and a firey ‘go-gettum’ attitude whilst Aquarius offers energy in innovation, the bigger picture of humanity and the expression of ‘how may I serve’.

What a sacred gift is this Full Moon  to be inspired to see beyond your perceived limitations and embrace a higher vision through Soul Purpose.

Super Full Moon:
This full moon is also the first Full Moon ‘SuperMoon’ for the year.  Please see my article on SuperMoons – what they are and their energetic effects.

Blue Moon:
This full moon is a Blue Moon.  Please see my article on Blue Moons– what they are and their energetic effects.
