Final Medicine Buddha Moon of the Horse Year ☼ ☾ January 28th 2015

For the final First Quarter Medicine Buddha Moon of the Horse year, tonight’s exalted Moon in Taurus holds a powerful healing. The combination of Fixed air and earth swiftly connects to the very core of ailments and problems, so they can be managed with love and patience. Even if making sudden, quick change there’s a sense of stability and perseverance that gives value to certain actions which point to cures and remedies.
This year of the Yang Wood Horse has shown us how to be victorious by moving like a lotus rising up and out of the muddy pond, and into spaces that opened-up to light-filled opportunity through our own drive and sense of purpose. And as the Horse year comes to an end, not to be seen again for 60 years, there's bound to even greater development in this increasingly spacy and computerized world the next time this powerful Horse comes around.
Even so, projecting into the future can make one anxious. Aquarius is also a future-orientated sign; and events around this Moon phase can, however, steady frazzled nerves, and encourage one to remain on centre and build upon that which nurtures the heart-mind and soul (particularly important during this Mercury Retrograde period). So prepare now for a dazzling Full Leo Moon on the 3rd Feb, when the heart-mind reigns supreme and altruism is vital to riding the positively exciting planetary élan.

♒ ☽☼☾ ♒ Aquarius New Moon 1st SuperMoon of 2015

☆ Jan 20th at 13:13GMT the 1st SuperMoon of 2015 is also the 1st of two new moons in the intellectual AIR sign Aquarius. The second will be next month, Feb 18th at #LOSAR (year of the Goat), with another, 'stealth' Super New Moon. Two New Moons in the same zodiacal sign accent a higher kind of consciousness; and the form this perception takes is signified by the sign. In this case, the New Moons are the sign of the Water Bearer, humanitarian, co-operative and mindful, emphasising the soul's ability to generate the altruistic intention.
☆ This is no time to rest on laurels, but to move and bend with the winds of change, all the while determining the mind’s eye the ability to see with the correct view. Spacy and scientific, Aquarius is also the zodiac’s wild card, indicating a time when things/ideas/situations can arise from out-of-the-blue and take one by surprise. The wonder may even be how humanitarian humanity can be and how kindred spirits working for the benefit of others can rally around to remove obstacles with team spirit.

☆ This New Moon also marks the last lunation of the Green Wood Horse Year, a year when personal opportunities have been more successful with such friendly reinforcement and family support. And now, just before the Wooden Horse leaves, not to be seen again for another 60 years, Mercury goes retrograde on Tuesday 21st at 17 Aquarius, putting on the breaks to slow (the mind) down during the Horse’s final lunation, in order to re-think, re-wire, re-calibrate whatever it is that these future-orientated Aquarian degrees spark in your own horoscope.
☆ This potentially wild, wiggy and exciting Mercury retrograde ends with Mercury direct at 1Aquarius on 11th Feb, (with a last quarter healing Moon). For re-thinking structures and ambitions key dates to watch and reflect upon are 5th January (just gone), 5th February, and the 19th Feb. And for powerful breakthroughs: 14th Jan, 28th Jan and March 1st.

Scorpio Dakini Moon ~ January 15th/16th 2015

_/\_This Capricorn lunation’s 'Dakini Day', when Spirit Sun makes the last major aspect in the form of the Sextile to the powerful Scorpio Moon, the (tantric) path of transform beckons as the means to liberation. When the waning Scorpio Dakini Moon conjuncts weighty but beauitful Saturn, planet of responsibility and discipline, this direction’s challenges are real and solid (relatively speaking ;) ). Confronting long-held fears can now bring certain karma to an end. Whether the karma ripening now is from this life’s causes and conditions may remain to be seen; there are many celestial factors currently at play which accent the realisation of the results of dedicated perseverance. Indeed, spiritual accomplishment can take many lifetimes. And as TimeLord Saturn in Sagittarius currently has the last say in present aspects - by way of planetary disposition - there’s reason to be optimistic about any work being achieved right now. Astral tip: The broader the view, the stronger and more meaningful the attainment.

“Om Tara Tutare Ture Soha” Tara Moon Jan15

12th/13th January __/\__Tara Moon ~> The Capricorn lunation’s last quarter healing Moon in Libra calls upon Tara, the beautiful Goddess of Compassion, as the Envoy of Peace, to save us from being overwhelmed by fear, anxiety, or other earthly concerns. Secure in the support of the Divine Feminine (within), now is the time to seek a calm place of rest (before the next new moon January 20th), somewhere to reflect, feed the soul, and absorb the inherent fractal beauty of creation.
This last quarter Moon is also conjunct the destiny-fulfilling North Node, where a fair and just future currently beckons. Thus the astral message is to follow your heart: Do whatever makes you feel love, balanced and in harmony with the world. In the nicest possible way, let go of all that which prevents spiritual practice, all the while mindful of how karma multiplies. Any judgment should be directed towards forgiveness, to free the heart-mind and allow the healing LoveLight to shine in all ten directions.

Full Moon in Cancer ❤ _/\_ Jan4th-5th ☆ •°*☾ ◯☽ *°•.☆

Events/thoughts/words can now trigger radical changes in direction towards beauty and enthusiasm, liberation and transformation. As the perihelion Sun (closest the Earth) shines upon the full and emotionally double-intense Cancer Moon at the nodal bends (@4:53GMT Jan5th), ‘The Lights’ spark into action the powerful ‘Cardinal Cross of the Central Spiritual Sun’. This dynamic ‘Grand Square’ (13-14 degrees Capricorn, Aries, Cancer Libra) accents Risen Divinity and the sacred union of wisdom and compassion, in action and loving kindness.

Tonight’s Full Moon Grand Cross is dominated by all things Lunar. It is therefore the powerful Mother Goddess archetype (who resides within) providing crystal clarity, universal connection and protection, calling each and every one of us at the very start of this New Year to raise the cosmic love vibration and cultivate a limitless heart, aspiring to take care of all beings and our environment, as a Spiritual Mother would look after her child.

Happy New Year & Full Moon Blessings to all ॐ

Guru Rinpoche New Year! 2015

__/\__ Celebrating the wisdom of the Lama as 2014 draws to a close. In the Tibetan Buddhist tradition, the moon phase five days before a full moon, the Gibbous Moon, is a monthly feast day in honour of our Teacher (Guru or Lama, historical or modern, friend, foe or loved one), who shows us how to live in love, with compassion. With the moon not yet full (Jan4th), Luna’s light is still reflective and bright; and this is considered the monthly optimum expression of joyful and luminous ‘yang’ energy. Both Sun and Moon are always in the same element for Guru Rinpoche day. In today’s case, the initiating Capricorn Sun and an exalted Taurus Moon accent the stabilising Earth element, helping to manifest in the ‘real’ world. A practical Moon in the sign of the Bull moderates Capricorn’s austere ambition, bringing out the SeaGoat Sun’s more spiritual qualities, such as maintaining the stamina and strength to accept personal responsibility and to welcome with an open heart the unerring discipline and practice needed to master skills - talents which are so often wasted without value or encouragement. Now ‘The Lights’ emphasis the wisdom of the (inner) Guru, it bodes well for our intentions, visioning, affirmations and resolutions to materialise for the coming year, 2015.

Happy New Year All!
