While her magic is capable of anything, she is particularly skilled in all matters dealing with women, the erotic, and love. She combines her sensuality with her sorcery in the most lethal of witchcraft; with a look, she can inspire lust and love in the hearts of even the coldest of humans, or lay waste to her enemies. She is the crossroads where death, love, and sex meet.

Full Moon in Libra (Blue Moon March 31st, 2018)

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.

On March 31st, 2018, we will have a Full Moon at 10° Libra, a full moon occurs when the Sun is Opposite the Moon.  This the second moon in the month of March,  when this occurs colloquially this is called a “blue” moon.  Not because the moon is blue but it is from the word belewe, ‘to betray’.

The original meaning would then have been “betrayer moon”, referring to a full moon that would “normally” (in years without an intercalary month) be the full moon of spring, while in an intercalary year, it was “traitorous” in the sense that people would have had to continue fasting for another month in accordance with the season of Lent.

There is also a T-square to Mars conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius.  A T-square occurs when three planets form a 90-degree angle, creating three squares, which present challenges in our experience.  This will be a Cardinal T Square since the planets involved are Libra, Aries, and Capricorn.  The challenge is learning how to work together, with ourselves and our environment.  There is also a Mercury retrograde Opposite the Full Moon, so this puts immense pressure on our identity, minds, and the words we choose.  This is a time of belief, generally, we can believe positively or negatively, with just as much fervor, and create miraculous or disastrous results.

Since the Full Moon takes place at the 10th Degree of Libra, let us discuss this point.  The 10-degree mark for Libra speaks to relationships, as well as independence, idealism, courage, and sometimes arrogance.  On the Aries side of things the 10-degree marks things such as gullibility, romance, too good to be true because it is, affairs, and changes.  So ultimately this is a relationship test.  The constellation of Libra deals with relationships, the second decan is ruled by Uranus/Saturn, representing ultimately karmic bonds.  Shifts and changes will happen during this full moon, based on the fact that the Sun is shining through to your subconscious (moon) in this area of thought.  It does not matter if you are single, or in a relationship, this applies to whatever the issues you may have in this realm (relationships), so let it come to the surface and heal it.

The straining conflicting energy will be based on the conjunction between Mars and Saturn in Capricorn.  Karma is often unagreeable yet unavoidable.  All of these energies produce reactions based on your awareness.  Negative thought processes create negative realities, and that is always our responsibility to adjust.  The reality is if we don’t take responsibility for our thoughts, planets like Saturn are always there to remind us.  This is not completely resulted in negativity, Saturn can also reward and bring success and riches, but not like in a wish upon a star kind of way.  Always a positive thing to do with an abundance of Mars energy is to find a creative outlet or workout.  Generally burning this energy brings about material results in direct or indirect ways.  Energy is to be used, not just observed.  Mars is the strongest in Capricorn, so this represents a window of really getting some things done.  Things that require hard work and endurance.  The idea of being independent will be fully exposed as in sickness, weird turns of events, or depression.  These things will require you to reach out to others based on need.  A need that was always there.  So be mindful if you are under the assumption that you can do it all by yourself.  Saturn is the Lord of Karma, in other words, you can lie to Hood Mystic but you can’t lie to Saturn.  Mars symbolizes action, motivation, inspiration, and desire.  The idea is to properly channel this energy into fruitful endeavors rather than wasteful ones.

The sign opposite Aries is Libra, the sign of diplomacy. Libra people want to generate peace in their surroundings. Libra is the sign associated with the significant other and with the need to create relationships. Libras are constantly considering what will make them happy in relation to what will make their partners happy. They are often willing to compromise their own positions in search of that illusive point of harmony, of equilibrium.

When a T-Square intensifies the skies, we are forced to make a decision, get off the fence and stop procrastinating. Unpleasant scenarios we’ve been avoiding may demand our attention, like chickens coming home to roost. T-Square energy can be forceful and unstoppable—a bit ruthless.

Jupiter in Scorpio will be sextiling Pluto in Capricorn.  This aspect represents an opportunity and a change of environment, especially if you are looking to exert any power over your life.  It may be that you are in the wrong location, look for opportunities that require moving and realigning with your soul.  Follow your soul/heart, do what feels right instead of thinking yourself out of it.  Follow the money as well, in search of financial improvement, you may not be in the best spot for you, be open to opportunities elsewhere.  This is an inner game as well, it’s important to be open to change and better situations.  Let’s be open to receive and open to change, change for the better.

Full Moon in Libra is not a comfortable moon,  its unsure of itself and may be too concerned what others think.  Are you succeeding for you or for what others may think of you?   Don’t reach over and beyond for love and relationships, the energy is speaking to you overcompensating rather than creating true love bonds.  Let’s not forget to factor that there is a Mercury retrograde opposite this Full Moon, which creates conflict naturally, serving yourself eases the conflict.  We have a Double Square(The Moon & The Sun) to a Mars/Saturn conjunction so the conflicts can show up as communication miscues, affairs, and what you need to do vs what you want to do.  Expect things to come to the surface during this Full Moon phase.  Don’t expect to fall in love with someone you know is not right for you, to work out favorably, understand the energy is showing you something about yourself that you need to work on, not embrace.

Full Moons bring things to the surface that need to be purged and released, be mindful of the things you need and don’t need, and focus on the things you plan to bring to a relationship.  If the energy confuses you or baffles you the best thing to do is to fall back and let things blow over.  Be mindful of being seduced and forced into situations you really don’t want to be in, situations you will later regret.  Ultimately a time for personal power and growth, addressing how you relate to others is the key to understanding this Full Moon transit.

Orisha Of The Week



Oba is the Orisha of marriage and personal transformation, which makes her related to Libra the house of partnership.  Oba is the very first wife of Shango, she was the ideal wife until she was tricked by her sister Oya.  After being embarrassed and kicked out the kingdom she fled to the cemetery where she went through a personal transformation into her true power.  We learn the most about ourselves through our relationships whether business or personal.  These partnerships enhance our lives, make them worth living.  Oba is the Orisha of the home but at the same time, she has fierce support and love for her husband even if it puts her in danger.  In this feminist society, it is no wonder she is not as popular of an Orisha as Oshun or Oya.  She represents feminine duty of the wife and mother, I personally do not see anything wrong with that.  She creates new pathways that have not been invented that gives you respect and the ability to provide for your family.   Oba is patient and a teacher.  Her color is pink, burgundy, and red.  She is a fighter and a warrior, she is also a protector.  She is teaching us how to transmute our pain to become our highest self through our relationships.  Oba is available.

This Week in Astrology — New Moon in Pisces (2018)

Awakening you to the Archetypal Movement during the week ahead.  The purpose of this blog is to make you aware of the energy available astrologically, for the purpose of spiritual and personal development.



On March 17th, 2018 there will be a New Moon in the constellation of Pisces at 26°.  The 26-degree mark of Pisces represents recovering after a calamity, twists of fate, and having courage in tough situations.  This is a time where self-confidence is brought to the test. As this being the last days before spring when everything becomes new again, we must be ready to work a proper intention, based on intuition and creativity.  There is anticipation here as well as impatience because you have been in a cocoon for so long.  This New Moon is ushering in something new, do not be afraid of change, and recognize the unstableness in your life.  Do not be afraid, be encouraged.  Make sure that you keep all options open, and really trust your intuition(gut) as to where or what your next move should be.  Do not be provoked by glamour, be provoked by your living soul.  The third Decan of Pisces represents the beginnings of mood changes, so you will no doubt be on your toes in one way or another.  Learning how to deal with fluctuating emotions are important, based on the fact that you do not know what others are going through internally.  You will barely be able to understand yourself.  This New Moon will ask you to rely on your psychic proclivities above all things, so by being out of tune with yourself, you can see how that may create problems.  This will be a time of psychic vampires that are looking to create drama and negative situations in order to feed, make sure you are a great distance away from it, grab some popcorn and enjoy it.  (If you’re into that kind of thing)


There will be a major Square to Mars in Sagittarius during this New Moon cycle, bringing those intense dramatic feelings to the surface for purging, certain things cannot be repressed during this time so watch out.  Learn how to find healthy alternatives for venting and clearing yourself of frustration so you can be clear on your inner guidance system, to bring about proper intentions.  You want to avoid placing an intention to cover up past mistakes, its time to blow it all up and start fresh.  Set completely new intentions from the soul.  Tap into your instincts rather than what you think you know, by doing this you will tap into energies and manifest situations you couldn’t even dream about.  The New Moon in Pisces is telling you to trust yourself, follow your soul, and be clear on what the soul is saying.  The limits that we place on ourselves are the limits we will have during this transit.  Do not look to make rash decisions even in adversity, as the seasons’ change and the Sun transitions into Aries, there will be a great revelation.  All mistakes will be rectified.  With a Square to Mars, there may be a tendency to do things in a thoughtless fashion. It is very possible to do things during this cycle that we will greatly regret.  Learning how to adjust on the fly and being in the moment, is key.  For some of us, this is a test of self-confidence and consistency.  Do not give up on projects you started based on they are not going the way you think, if you truly want it, you may have to ride out the self-doubt until a breakthrough occurs.


The New Moon will be trine Jupiter in Scorpio inspiring a generosity towards yourself.  As you expand towards a deeper understanding of transformation and what it means for you, this is a time to really feed yourself the information you truly need.  Hang out with people that you truly want to be with, read books that truly resonate with you, and don’t be afraid to try new things.  This is a relaxing New Moon if we are able to let go and let the new flowers grow.  Share your real emotions with others, socialize, and do things that increase your mood.  This will be a time of increased popularity and notoriety as long as you stay in your truth.  Bonds can grow from this transit based on honesty and truth.  You can expect an increase in material wealth as well as influential friends who share the same mind as you.  Jupiter will be in Retrograde for next 4 months.  Jupiter will be looking for poison or any blockages to happiness and success.  The things that come up during the next 4 months will be things we need to correct, not continue to ignore.  


During this New Moon cycle, there are some transits affecting the North Node that are of note as well.  There will be an inconjunction to Neptune in Pisces, wanting you to highlight the motivations behind your behaviors, and get those in check.  You may be doing things that others simply want you to do whether it is at work, in relationships, or with family.  When the goal is to listen to the soul and do the things you truly want.  There is also a Square to Jupiter that makes it hard to just go along with the status quo, you have to follow your own personal prompts.


What Chiron/Moon eventually comes to understand is that the physical world is not the opposite of the divine world, the two are one.


This New Moon represents a deep need to succeed and be successful, and what you need and don’t need for that process to manifest correctly.  Strive to live with purpose and determination over passiveness.  It is a time to solve the mystery of you and why you were put on this earth.  Pay attention to your studies and personal interactions as they represent a psychological mirror.  The things you see in them that you like or dislike are indications of things you need to work on.  Exercise, Pet projects, and hobbies are what may be needed to remove those energies that disturb you, in order for you to be free to listen to your living soul.    


Orisha of the Week




Pisces is ruled by the Orisha Olokun.  Olokun represents the deep subconscious mind, soul, inner God, and key to abundance and wealth.  Based on the abstract nature of our subconscious mind, getting into contact with Olokun is often seem to be impossible.  You need to go through the proper channels.  Olokun has a sister/wife known by the name of Olosȧ to which he/she issues his/her messages to.  Olosa is the Orisha of Lagoons she represents the lagoons that precede the ocean.  She is one of the survivors of Ancient Egypt, as the deity Sobek.  Sobek was the deity of power, fertility, and magic.  He also was a protective deity.  Sobek was a crocodile God, like Olosa.  The crocodile represents your reptilian brain, tapping into this aspect is where the magic happens.  Olosa is known as the deepest Oshun, the Oshun that makes music, she is one of the hardest most strict of the paths of Oshun.  Her color is Pearl.  She transmits messages to Olokun. (Pisces New Moon) She will help in the realms of beauty, love, hatred, severity, inflexibility, tolerance, and sensuality.
