Moon in Aquarius - teaches us to value our community; we learn from our circle, rather from intimate relations. Politics and group dynamics become part of our sacred path. Now is the time to search for new allies and ponder practical applications of the meta-physical. This is a transit of dealing with facts, organizing, political issues, desire to save the world through social actions, connecting with others in social situations, scientific pursuits, detachment and the need to come and go without restrictions. Aquarius is a dramatic mood change. Where Capricorn values traditions and caution, Aquarius indicates anything new, innovative, different or unconventional. Extremes of behavior occur during this moon, especially extremes of optimism and pessimism. Aquarius moon can be detached or rational rather than emotional, and will change only if it's logical to do so. The Moon in Aquarius expands our circles and offers the magick of collaboration; spirit and politics weave together. We can get too farsighted now and need to stay aware of others' feelings. Moon in Aquarius is the best time to work magick involving science, freedom, creative expression, problem-solving, extrasensory abilities, friendship and the breaking of bad habits or unhealthy addictions. Healing rituals for ailments of the calves, ankles or blood are also done at this time. The path of the soul born under an Aquarius Moon is to tend the web of the community. They need to respect true emotions, theirs as well as others, but help us to see interconnectedness and explore theory behind our experiences.
Sun Day - is the Day of Intent, Creation, and Renewal ......Sun Day brings bright solar energies into our lives and have the magickal correspondences of success, promotion, leadership, pride, light, generosity, warmth, fitness and personal growth. The charms and spells that would compliment this magickal day of the sun are ones for personal achievement of any kind. Health issues, increasing personal power or simply sticking to your diet and being proud of what you have accomplished all fall under the sun's golden influence.
Candle Colors for Sun Day - In her Book of Witchery Ellen Dugan says: "Candles colors for Sun Day include yellow and gold. In magick, the color yellow is used to aid communication, knowledge and creativity. The color gold represents royalty, the God, riches, wealth and frame. For centuries candles have been lit to welcome deity and to symbolize a connection to the magickal realm. In actuality, a burning candle is a physical symbol of your spell. Watch for gold metallic tapers and pillar candles around the winter holidays and you can usually pick them up on sale. Yellow may be harder to find, so keep your eyes peeled. For my (Ellen Dugan) candle magick, I like to work with scented votives. They comes in all colors and lots of yummy fragrances. Try looking for citrus scents to bring health and cinnamon scents for success and prosperity. These bewitching scents will help link your solar magick with a little magickal aromatherapy."
Sun in PIsces - The Mutable Pisces Sun asks us to feel the ambient pools of unabashed emotion and be moved to compassionate action. As the bears stirs in their dens this time of the year, Pisces calls us to use the growing spring light and clear nights to explore our dreams.
