Because we're paying attention to celestial bodies- why not think a little deeper into how that affects our own energy as well. Each of us has a unique snapshot of stars/planetary objects that were in the sky during the exact moment we entered this life. Below, you'll find a FREE birth chart that will require you to know (accuracy is SUPER important here) the city, date, and TIME of your birth. From there you can dive as deep as your heart desires into your individual astrological meanings. The one that is super important for this month's new moon ceremony is where Gemini is within our charts.
With each moon phase comes new opportunity to take advantage of shifts in energy. We are spiritual beings having a human experience. It is easy to get distracted and caught up in what's going on right in front of us- all while feeling outside forces acting on us on an energetic level. Twice a month we get together to check-in with ourselves and learn about what's going on around us to get re-connected. The moon has affect over the ocean tides and we are made up of mostly water- its easy to see how we become so overwhelmed at times. Practicing yoga, meditation, and journaling are just some of the tools we use within Full & New Moon Ceremonies to help you feel like yourself again. So now... what's the difference between the full & new moon phases?!

What would your day look like if you started by setting your intention? First of all, what does that even mean?! Well, starting with setting an intention for me looks like deciding how my energy should be for the day before I encounter any outside factors. I'll admit, I'm a SERIAL phone-scroller in the morning. Facebook, Instagram, emails- you name it + I've already checked it. What is this really doing for me though? Allowing other people's energy to affect mine before...
