Happy Moon Phase Monday!
I know it has been a while since I have done a MPM. I am eager to get back sharing insight into the days to come.
We will be in the Waning Crescent Moon Phase until it goes New on Thursday.
Now is the best time to relax and prepare for what is yet to come. It is NOT a time for starting new or initiating change. You must rest and re-energize so that your inner strengths are prepared for the New Moon cycle that begins Thursday. It is then that you can start to explore what you would like your new beginnings to look like.
Today (Monday) the Balsamic Moon (Waning Crescent Moon) is in Virgo. You may have noticed yourself increasingly analytical of how you spend your time and how much recognition you get for your work. This is not a bad thing. Know what you want and plan to work to get it. Everything take times. Start with yourself.
Tuesday and Wednesday the Moon will be in Libra. Libra is the sign of partnership and awareness of others. These are excellent days to incorporate social activities into your routine. If this is an issue for you because of time, work on balancing a work-personal life balance. Disconnect and separate from work. Make time for yourself.
If this is an issue for you because of social awkwardness, learn to cooperate and compromise with others. No one wants to be alone. No one should be alone.
On Thursday the New Moon will be in Scorpio, which is represented by the fear of rejection. Do not be distracted by this. Scorpio is also the sign of passion and resourcefulness. Know that you can achieve anything you put your mind to right now.
Is there a project you have been working on? Have you been feeling stuck or unmotivated? Thursday's New Moon in Scorpio will bring a change to this energy. Transformation and regeneration of what already exists is inevitable now. You must learn to trust your instincts and intuition to see this New Moon energy at work.

WANING CRESCENT MOON IN LIBRA
NEW MOON IN SCORPIO
Waning Gibbous Moon Phase
Moon energies have been decreasing since Monday's Full Moon. As of approximately 14:10 Eastern Standard Time Monday August 7th, the moon has been diminishing in visibility and strength. It is best to release what no longer serves you into this fading moonlight so that it does not hinder your growth come the New Moon.
The Waning Gibbous phase is ideal for inward reflection. It is now that you want to find ways to get out of your old ways of thinking and doing. By connecting with your deeper self, you are allowing for subconscious enlightenment to turn into the conscious and creative release.
The moon will be in Waning Gibbous through August 13th. Come August 14th the moon will move into the Third and Final Quarter. Take this time now to begin removing any obstacles that may hinder your progress in the days and weeks to come.
Below you will find a short overview of the next few days under the Waning Gibbous moon. I have provided insight into how you can use this time to best benefit and heal yourself.
Waning Gibbous in Pisces
Time to Respect Your Own Nature
Tuesday 8/8 Wednesday 8/9 Thursday 8/10 - 2017
The moon in Pisces is often characterized by heightened awareness to emotions and sensitivities. This heightened awareness allows for intuition and natural instincts to lead the way for subconscious enlightenment. Be open to all that you experience. Do not be discouraged by your own inner voice. In fact, now is a great time to consider finding an outlet for your emotions and sensitivities as well as imagination. Use creation and recreation as sources of release under the moon in Pisces.

Waning Gibbous in Aries
Friday 8/11 Saturday 8/12 - 2017
The moon in Aries is characterized by the affirmation "I am." This short phrase suggests that you have a deeper awareness of self, which may become more common when the moon is in Aries. If appearance and outward personality are important to you, make sure that they align with your heart's values. If they do not align, use this time get out of your old ways of doing things and prepare to implement the necessary changes to align your heart with your actions. Reflect inwards to find the guidance you seek to do so.

On Monday, the moon will go from Waning Gibbous in Taurus into the third and final quarter also in Taurus. Sunday and Monday are important times to prepare to let go of what is no longer serving you. If you are not sure of what to let go of, ask yourself if your values align with your lifestyle. choices. Self-awareness and self-development can serve as tools to help you. Be prepared to leave your materialism in the past as you begin to enjoy the simple beauties around you. Remember that everything you have is everything you need.

The Moon in Capricorn puts a special emphasis on structure, strategy, responsibility, and obligations as well as boundaries and discipline.
Understanding the lunar energies can help you implement self-care and self-improvement techniques that will have beneficial effects that last.
From Thursday 8/3 - Saturday 8/5 the Moon will be Waxing Gibbous in Capricorn. The Waxing Gibbous phase is also known as the development stage, so use this time to build momentum---but don't forget to maintain balance. This is an excellent time to strategies on how you can begin to introduce beneficial techniques to your routine.. Observe what is working for you and what is not working for you. Let go of what is not working under Monday's Full Moon.
For ultimate results,
I suggest to first set boundaries
reinforced by discipline.
The fear of failure
is just an illusion.
Push through the doubts.
Capricorn is known to rule the bones, hair, and skin, so be careful of your knees and teeth. Become aware of the products you use, for example, hair and skin products, toothpaste, mouthwash, sunscreen, bug spray, essential oils, etc. Not all products are made the same. There are some products that have extremely high chemical content. Not only do you inhale these toxins, you also absorb them through your skin, which is harmful to health. Now is the best time as ever to incorporate some changes to your regular product purchases.
Use this week to prepare for next Monday's Full Moon in Aquarius.
Whether you feel the emotional, mental, physical, or spiritual effects of the Moon phases and accompanying astrological signs, the influence is there.
Each moon phase and each astrological sign have certain characteristics that impact the energies in and around us. This lunar effect is recognized by hunters and fishermen as well as everyday people like myself.
As a holistic health educator I like to inform people about new things that can benefit their health and wellness. Moon phase information is important for me to share because my understanding to these energies has greatly benefited my health and wellness, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I feel that others can use the knowledge of moon phase information to make small but meaningful changes to their lifestyles.
Yesterday (Sunday July 30), the Moon entered the First Quarter in Scorpio. If you were out enjoying the beautiful day (in New Jersey), you may have noticed the moon rose about 6 hours after the sun, so just around noon. The Moon will be in Waxing Gibbous as visibility grows throughout the rest of the week.
The First Quarter Moon in Scorpio forces you to ask yourself the question: What Are My Motives?
With the fear of rejection at the center of Scorpio character traits, it is important to show yourself inner love today ( Monday ). Also consider taking the necessary actions to invoke growth in new areas of your life.
We begin the month of August with the Sun in Leo and Moon in Sagittarius. The sun will remain in Leo throughout the month but the Moon will only be in Sagittarius temporarily.
The Farmer's Almanac suggests using the Moon in Sagittarius to weed, plow, or prune your garden. You can translate this advice into your life by weeding out things in your life that are no good for you.
The Waxing Gibbous phase helps us to refine, observe, and balance whatever it is we are manifesting. Similar to how it is a great time to perfect the nature around us, it is a great time to perfect and nurture ourselves.
With Moon energies increasing throughout the week, it is important to take the time to show yourself some love and self-care. Get outside, whether it be to tend to your garden, to build a garden, or to walk in a garden, get outside! If you find that your sciatic nerve and thighs bother you, spend some time in a field or the ocean. If getting outside is an issue for you, try spraying some rose hip oil or using cinnamon while cooking.
The three days leading up to the Full Moon are very important for cultivating and building the momentum to grow.
From Thursday to Saturday, the Moon will be in Capricorn.
Capricorn Moon characteristics follow the same waxing gibbous theme of discipline, balance, and structure. Similarly, the waxing gibbous stage is known as the development stage. In the developmental stage it is ideal to build the momentum to prepare for growth while you cultivate, refine, and observe what you have been doing already.
If you have an idea or goal, do not let this time pass without doing something proactive about it.
Full Moon energies may be a lot for one to handle, therefore I suggest preparing for the Full Moon by journaling, participating in ceremonies, recharging in moonlight, etc.
The moon will enter into Aquarius on Sunday and become it's Fullest on Monday August 7. The moon energy will slowly start to decrease as the moon diminishes in size. Once this happens, begin to let go of what no longer serves you. The changing moon will take from you whatever you need to release. The Full Moon is not necessarily about letting go and cleansing, but I recommend using the lunar energies as a source of release.
I do use the Full Moon to reflect on past intentions and how they correlate with my growth. I like to use this time to see how I have transformed and will continue to transform in the future. The Full Moon (and New Moon) are very selfish times for me because I spend a lot of time by myself (with my crystals). If you are interested in doing the same, use the weekend to recharge in the moonlight. Whether it be with a bonfire, watching fireworks, camping, etc., just get outside and spend time AWAY FROM MAN MADE ELECTRICITY** and near the moon. This goes for your crystals, oracle cards, and any tools you may use in your energy healing.
Purifying yourself, your space, and your tools with high quality essential oils is highly recommended during this time. Diffusers work great for this purpose.
(**Man mad electricity,power lines, lights, etc. make it more difficult for us to benefit from lunar energy.. In fact, I feel that man mad energy and electricity we commonly surround ourselves with our devastating to our overall health, but especially energetic health.**)
Aquarius characteristics center around personal freedom, liberation, breaking free of habits, individuality, etc.
Have you been seeking an individuality driven transformation but do not know where to start? The Full Moon in Aquarius can help.
Aquarius energies bring about the breaking free from uniformity and incorporating changes to things that do not work. If you have been trying to do SOMETHING but need a little push, the energies from the moon in Aquarius is here now to give you that push.
The reason I like to give people at least a week to prepare for the Full Moon is because you can benefit greatly by using the Moon energies for your self-healing. If you do not have enough time to really assess what you want for this moon and how you can use it's specific characteristics to your benefit, you may not get the most out of it's presence.
What do you like to do to prepare for the Full Moon?
Let me know in the comment section below.
full moon in capricorn - time for stRuCture
The Full Moon is an important time to reflect on past intentions set forth during other Moon Phases.
Waxing Gibbous Capricorn 7/7, 7/8
Full Moon Capricorn 7/9 12:08AM EST
Waning Gibbous Aquarius 7/9, 7/10, 7/11
The waxing gibbous that preceeds the Full Moon is a time for balance and boundaries. It is the time you should be adapting to any changes or new influences introduced.
Therefore, the Full Moon is a time of inward reflection and connecting with ones individual roots and values. It is not a time to introduce new or try to maintain balance. It is a time to analyze and reflect before preparing to let go of what no longer serves you.
The Full Moon is the best time to review the last few weeks and months to see if you are successful in following through with your past intentions.
Following every Full Moon comes the waning gibbous. Here the Moon begins to decrease in visibility. It is encouraged for individuals to reflect inward before the Third Quarter arrives.
As the moon appears half full in the Third Quarter, it is suggested to let go of all
that no longer serves you. By doing so you are allowing yourself to relax and prepare to start New under the waning crescent moon that you see before the sky goes dark for the New Moon.
Under the New Moon, we set intentions for new beginnings and fresh starts. The First Quarter is time to take action and move forward.
It is important to note that this Full Moon is in Capricorn, therefore fears and feelings of failure are heightened. Negativity, especially towards oneself, is common under this Moon energy.
Common moon magic performed when the Full Moon is in Capricorn involves the business, career, reputation, and paternal ties. If you have been striving to make changes to your professional life or personal profile, use this time to see if you are making progress. If not, try to understand what works for you and what isn't.
Many people notice an increase in need for structure, discipline, and organization right now. If you would like to incorporate Chakra routines that will help implement structure, check out my Root Chakra page(direct link below).
Remember to exercise humility as you use this time to get what you need. Know that wisdom is surrounding you!
Be Aware: The Full Moon will also have a bit of Aquarius energy mixed as will the Waning Gibbous. This will be very powerful for those who use the days following the Full Moon to reflect inwards to asses individuality and personal freedom. If you have been feeling restless in your career or life path, use this time to dig deep within yourself. Your heart will guide you. There are so many external influences around us. You are the only influence that matters! Now is the time to break habits. Now is the time for change. Do not fear uniformity or conformity. Embrace your individuality.
