Astrology for Troubled Times #1 Self-Care and the Moon by Cristina Rombi

Originally posted on ZodiacPoetry on January 15, 2020 by Cristina Rombi Self-care and the Moon: Why you should feed your Lunar Needs Among other things, the sign and house occupied by the Moon in the natal chart reveal the kind of energy that feels most familiar and soothing — the one that is capable of feeding our Soul. A starved Moon is an imbalanced Moon. A Moon that is deprived of her nourishment is more likely to respond to stress and fatigue with detrimental ingrained patterns and unhealthy coping mechanisms, especially if she is afflicted. This is why it’s crucial … Continue reading Astrology for Troubled Times #1 Self-Care and the Moon by Cristina Rombi

Shadow Work: Aquarius Season New Moon Personal Tarot

What’s up, foks!! I hope this week is starting off on a positive note despite the intensity and confusion our current astrology indicates. The New Moon that occurred on Friday, January 24, 2020 at 4 degrees in the sign of Aquarius marked the Lunar New Year (Chinese New Year) and was square to Uranus in Taurus at 6 degrees who just stationed direct on January 10 after about 5 months in retrograde motion. We’ve got Venus and Neptune Conjunct & Mercury moving into shadow. Clarity is available but will be hard to come by. You gotta grind for it.

Awakening of the Inner Child

I had an epiphany while analyzing how adamant I was re:my decision to excommunicate the friend I recently visited and a few other seemingly close relationships that disintegrated because the were based on a function on a foundation of shared toxicity.  What these situations have in common (because these people are very different in presentation and experience) is that they triggered a feeling I associate from my childhood that feeling of being purposely shut out because of the depth and intensity of my intuition and perception of what was going on en my environment and with my loved ones.  The … Continue reading Awakening of the Inner Child

Wake up! Your gift is calling…
