Moon in Aries - gives us access to our fire; temper, impatience and passions run high. We're urgent to get back on track, re-center in ourselves but can lose our empathy. It's time to do what truly makes us feel alive, initiate project, set boundaries and buffer our temper. Moon in Aries asks us to wake up and remember who we truly are, even if it bothers those we love or work for. Tempers, tears and passions run hot. Moon in Aries can be a time of new beginnings, intense activity, pioneering in any field, reaching out with emotional surges and impulsiveness. This moon transit is a great tester of limits. When the Moon is in Aries you may want to depend on yourself as there is also a certain amount of ego involvement. You may feel impatient now or want to initiate new things.
    Aries moon is based on impulsiveness and acting on feelings of the moment,  rather than the result of reason. Sometimes snap decisions are made - later to be regretted. The force of Aries is felt in emotional surges, whereby we are highly assertive and enthusiastic. Aries is known for headstrong behavior, and a tendency towards temperamental blowup. Moon in Aries is the best time to work magick involving leadership, authority, rebirth, spiritual conversion or willpower. Healing rituals for ailments of the face, head, or brain are also done during this period of time. Those born under an Aries Moon listen to their muse. Direct, intense, generous, fiercely independent, they love a challenge and bucking authority. They're often warriors for a cause and can irritate or inspire others with their innate fire; they're challenged to learn dynamic cooperation.

Freya's Day - Venus Day, the Day of Sharing and Relationship ..... A pink candle lit today as you meditate on working for happiness and harmony in your home and/or friendships is perfect. Love magick is a perennial popular topic. However, there is more to this topic than  meets the eye. There are many enchanting layers here for us to explore. What about creating a loving home or producing a loving and nurturing family? What about keeping your intimate relationships vital and on track? How about promoting happy, healthy and enduring friendships? So see, there is more to be considered than just the 'You shall be mine....' type of fictional love spell. The truest, strongest magick always comes from the heart.

Imbolc/Candlemas - At Imbolc awakening begins and the return of light seems assured. Energies within the earth, as well as the physical body, begin to gently pulsate as the days lengthen, and our hopes turn to spring. Traditionally a time of transformation and initiation, Imbolc brings 'big dreams' and a raised vibration. Sap rises, trees bud, and agricultural people everywhere look to nature for the omens that might tell them whether to plant their crops early or late this year. In these tumultuous times, however, human-caused global climate change has caused more intense storms and weather conditions that make it difficult to read these simple oracles. As old structures crumble inside and all around us, a mantra can help to stabilize our energies and subdue our fears. Try saying the protective Sanskrit syllables OM  AH HUM over and over whenever you feel afraid and imagine yourself sitting safely inside of Kali's dance of liberation.
