Balsamic Moon Phase: release

Moon in Leo/Virgo

Ruling Madavidyas: Shodashi and Matangi

Skill: embrace the new, release the old

Negative Imprints: locked into limitations, not using common sense, emotional insensitivity, rigid thinking, projection, allowing others to shape us, competetion, scattered

Positive Imprints: ancient wisdom, analysis, answers, signs, integration, tempering with love, focus, staying true to the self, processing information, observance, opportunities

The Moon will make its once-a-month conjunction with the Black Moon Saturday at 8:30 pm ET/12:30 am UT.  Shadow sides will come forth for recognition and integration.  Everyone's shadow sides are pushed to the forefront, some more than others depending on the other aspects happening in their charts.

Fears about change and issues of power (especially power struggles) accompany this energy, but the personal core fear in each of us is activated.  Instincts are triggered, producing a potential for drama.  People will project their own feelings onto others, avoiding taking personal responsibility.  Emotions always run higher when the Moon and the Black Moon come together.  (For more information on your personal shadow side see my book on the Black Moon available for free at

Signs, synchronicities and symbols deliver important information during Balsamic Moon phases, but these communications are more active Saturday.  Saturday's energy delivers information to us and Sunday's energy has us putting that into practice.  Sunday's energy also brings the power of precision-focus to complete tasks or unfinished business.

All of this serves to bring new opportunities.  This month has been a month of trusting in a divine hand painting events and brighter futures.  Many things are being swept away to become the dust of the past.  Whatever is leaving your life needs to be left in the dust.

A unique feature of this is that one opportunity is branching out, like a tree, into many opportunities.  As we are aligned with our best course, other things begin to become alive.

Any situations that are troubling, distressful, or confusing should be broken down into their smaller parts in order to see the big picture of what's going on.

The notion of being careful with what you wish for because you just may get it is strongly in effect this weekend.  The power of the mind to imprint reality is optimal, so we want to be clear in our desires.

This lunar month has been a test of trust.  Do you trust the universe's hand in your life?  We can guide our lives, but we are not in control.  A higher part of us which is immersed in Oneness directs our course.  The Sabian symbol for this month is "two guardian angels bringing protection" so we have all the help we need.  Trust the process and trust that it is bringing you where you need to be.  Look for wisdom in ancient sources or sources that espouse the ancient knowledge.  Pay close attention to nature.

The Goddess of Beauty, Shodashi, in collaboration with the Goddess of the Wind, Matangi, prepares to close out their month with the New Moon in Libra on Tuesday.  Shodashi is bringing the new and Matangi is sweeping out the old.  Trust what is beginning and let go of what is ending.

The Second Renaissance is happening right before our eyes.
