About This Full Moon in Pisces This Full Moon is a peak time for healing energies, slowing down and tuning in. If magic landed on your shoulder, would you see it? Mystical Pisces and the physically changeable Virgo show us how to surrender to changes we need to make. Release habits, attitudes, contacts, activities that don't serve your growth any longer. These two faithful signs can help us fall apart, if we have to, from the loss, so the real healing can begin.
It's a Full Moon of heightened contact with the divine. Seek out cloistered places that feel sacred to you. It could be your armchair in a private corner, your bath, a favorite nature trail, church, dance floor, museum, theater, in a tree...anywhere that is hallowed ground for your spirit.
If you're missing this in your life, you might set up an altar in your home, with inspiring images, candles, books, pictures, stones, feathers or prayer cards. Maybe the stress of life has kept you from your sacred space, making this Full Moon a time for re-dedicating yourself to spending time there. Read the full article here.
Something magical is happening, as more people open their hearts and see life in a new way. We stop trying to figure it all out and just experience it through the heart. Step back, go within, and ask for guidance on your part in this great cosmic moment.
Express what's in your soul. What raw artistry is there, waiting to be cultivated? What stories are inside your heart, dying to be told? What life in you has gone unlived? Dare to shine. Read the full article here.

About this New Moon in Gemini Here's a chance to go beyond crazymaking spin and distractions to the Source of wisdom. It's a New Moon that spirals us into the void to straddle two worlds, just like Gemini's archetype, the Magician. You get to juggle it all yourself -- both external noise and the wisdom coming out of that mysterious void. Read the full article here.

About This Full Moon Feeling intense and shadowy? Me too. Here's a snippet of what this Full Moon has going on:
This is a Full Moon to have faith in the process, and allow intensity to Be without repressing it. There are heaps of squares and oppositions that may turn a mild discomfort into an urgent drive to act. To witness Scorpio in its highest expression is to see both surrender to the soul mixing process, and the execution of well-timed actions. In this high stakes moment, Mercury retro in sure-footed Taurus reminds us that slow and steady wins the race. It's an ideal time to consider how to ground intensity, and fix those energies on your creative goals.
Today marks 3 years since I moved to Spokane. April 14 used to mark a very different kind of anniversary for my ex-husband and me -- our first date was April 14, 1994. Today is also the New Moon in Aries, and my cycle began, so I'm crampy and hormonal. Happily I picked up the Dobies this morning—Bryon and I share custody—and spent time cavorting in and along the Columbia River. Maybe some or most of this explains why I feel crummy, accentuated by the fact that I compulsively wolfed down 8 cookies today.
As Liz Lemon says, "Blerg." Wish I hadn't eaten them. Sugar is kicking (and expanding!) my ass.
Because today is the New Moon, I should have written and sent out a newsletter offering 15% OFF at zenamoon.com using coupon code NEWMOON, but the newsletter can wait 'til tomorrow. The offer is valid now, though. Good through 4/17/10.
P.S. Just remembered I saw a beaver swimming in the Columbia River this morning and thought to look up its meaning. What I read knocked my socks off! In particular...
Beaver's medicine brings you the wisdom of creativity, maintaining the ability to be productive in all ways by not limiting your options, being persistent, using available resources, finding and using alternate ways of doing tasks, master builder of all things, not damming the flow of experiences in life, achievement through completion of tasks, understanding the dynamics of group work, protecting, cooperation, fertility and new promise.
None of which I'm presently doing.
Beavers are good at teamwork, and work together cooperatively to construct their homes.
For a good solid year I've had a strong desire to be part of a team again.
The Beaver reminds us that we have to act on our dreams to bring them alive—it is time for action. If beaver has entered your life, it may be wise to ask yourself whether you have been neglecting your dreams? Are you lost in your dreams and not acting upon them?
Yes and yes. Action is my touchstone word for 2011. Also what this New Moon in Aries is about!
Beavers are also fabulous swimmers
YAY! I am too and am joining the Y this week to start swimming, one of the things I love most.
Beaver people often find they must work hard to fulfill their goals. Don’t forget to be kind and loving to yourself.
