Our New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Sagittarius, a sign linked to adventure, education and exploration is in a decisive square to Jupiter which brings pressure to make important decisions or be pushed out of our comfort zone as we step into new opportunities presenting themselves. Additionally the square to Ceres in Virgo urges us to pay attention to our health, how we wish to serve in the world, and to be more discerning in the choices we make on all levels about what is truly nurturing to us now. Chiron turning direct at the exact moment of this New Moon brings powerful healing, deep sharing even forgiveness to all HolyDay gatherings. Also of note: Mercury turns retrograde on January 29 and thankfully Mars will complete its challenging retrograde on January 12 2023. Welcome to the New Year!

New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Scorpio ~ November 23 – December 22 2022
This New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Scorpio brings an auspicious energy we can all be thankful for as we complete the celestial year of 2022 ending on Winter Solstice December 21. Jupiter has been in retrograde since July 29 and now shifts to forward motion at the exact moment of this New Moon — wow! Some of Jupiter’s attributes include optimism, keeping the faith, prosperity, natural joy and confidence so those qualities are strongly nourished in us with this New Moon and for the next four weeks. Other key events during this period include Neptune in Aquarius completing its retrograde on December 3, the dynamic Full Moon on December 7 aligned with Mars retrograde, and the glorious Winter Solstice arrives in our Northern Hemisphere on December 21, always a good time to sit in stillness, just listening, being, smiling with gratitude for Life’s unending gifts.
New SolLunar Cycle in sidereal Libra ~ October 25 – November 22 2022
The energy or qi of the Earth is pulling us inward, helping to downwardly settle and ground us during an unsettling time as the earthly and cosmic movement in our Northern Hemisphere pulls us deeper toward Winter Solstice. We now experience Samhain/Halloween on October 31 – November 1, the final harvest of nuts and berries. Time to contemplatively honor and celebrate your creative cycle of 2022. Our New SolLunar Cycle which takes place in sidereal Libra is also a Partial Solar Eclipse. What is exceptional about this is that the Sun/Moon/South Node are aligned with Venus, a planet that mirrors love, beauty, ethics, values, bringing these energies to the fore during this four-week period. There is tremendous healing occurring on so many levels and this New Moon will assist us greatly. The Full Moon is a Total Lunar Eclipse happening on November 8, Voting Day, sure to spark fireworks! Lastly, Mars will turn retrograde on October 30 2022 – January 12 2023, ushering in an intense and volatile period as we close out 2022. May these events call more humans back to the kindness-table focused on creating an honest, just, fair and beautiful world for all.
