No Time to Give Up | Your Astrology + Horoscopes for February 2019

 No time to give up. 
 Nowhere to go but up! 

When you think people doubt your abilities, it's simple. Remove that thought. When you think what you do doesn't make a difference, it's simple. Remove that thought. We all struggle with self-doubt at some point, but learning the art of surrender can actually help us be more true to ourselves and live with more passion.

Surrendering is not the same as giving up. To surrender means to stop fighting. Whether that means to stop fighting with yourself or to stop fighting with the natural flow of circumstances, surrendering begins when you let go of an attachment to a particular outcome.

Understand that surrender is actually not a state of inaction. When we act from a place of surrender, we stop trying to control things — which is rooted in fear. It is more about taking action from a space of openness. A space where you can be more receptive and let the current carry you downstream, instead of you swimming upstream.

"Surrender is actually not a state of inaction." 

When you understand the difference between giving up and surrender or detachment, you will see that there is always a way for you to move forward. There is always a way for you to move in a new direction. To detach from your intended outcome is one of the keys to creating your reality from a more conscious perspective. Yes, there may be times when it is wise to know when to give up. But this is not about seeing giving up as the end of it all.

This is about seeing giving up as a way to release what no longer serves your purpose. What no longer works. What can be changed. Seeing giving up as an option to move upwards is the first step to finding your new path. A path that is more relevant to where you are today. There is peaceful energy that surrounds you when you are not forcing yourself to do something. This energy is magic. This energy is you taking action from a place of surrendering to your highest good. Your fullest potential. Be receptive to this energy. And then begin taking that next step.

"There is always a way for you to move in a new direction."

There will be a New Moon on February 4th. The Moon will be joining the Sun and Mercury in Aquarius, marking a free-thinking and future-oriented New Moon in the sign of the Water Bearer. This is your chance to start afresh! The Aquarian energy is potent with fresh, new beginnings. This is the perfect time to think outside the box. To take a different route. To be innovative. This is not the time to be wary of the unknown. This is your time to explore the unexplored. Understanding that by exploring the new, you open up to the possibility of you actually enjoying (and benefiting from) something new.

The Moon will be forming a sextile to Jupiter in Sagittarius as well as Mars and Uranus in Aries, giving you the courage to grow from exploring the new. You don't grow from taking action you've always taken. What growth asks from you is for you to try adopting a new attitude, a new way of thinking and literally taking new action. A spirit of self-challenge opens you up to new ideas that may very well be better than the ones you currently hold dear. Trust the process. Clear your 'space'. Set New Moon intentions.

"You don't grow from taking action you've always taken."

You will also have a Full Moon on February 19th. The Moon will be in Virgo forming an opposition to the Sun, Neptune, and Mercury in Pisces, marking an alchemical and spiritual New Moon in the sign of the Virgin. How are your New Year's resolutions going? Have you formed your new desired habits? Or are you just starting out? Wherever you are on your progress, you still have plenty of time left. Find some time to understand your schedule better and see where you can add in some goal-smashing activities.

The Moon will be forming a trine to Mars in Taurus as well as Saturn, Venus, and Pluto in Capricorn. If you are having trouble meeting your goals, make sure they are attainable and realistic. It may be easy to get caught up in the latest healthy eating plan or exercise routines. But this is not about that. This is about you staying focused on what actually works for you. Participating in an activity that you enjoy or eating nutritious foods that you actually like will help you stick with them over the long haul.

"Find some time to understand your schedule better and see
where you can add in some goal-smashing activities."

With the Moon's square to Jupiter in Sagittarius, tasks that seem overwhelming can be accomplished if you break them into more manageable steps. Begin your journey by recognizing that the most important part of goal-setting is not in achieving it, but in defining it. What do you hope to achieve? What sacrifices will you need to make? How is it going to impact other parts of your life, such as your personal and family life? Is your goal achievable with the time and the resources that you have? 

February is a time to revisit your New Year's resolutions. A time to try new things to stimulate your creativity and see old ideas in a new light. A time to give up old ways that no longer work and give in to self-empowering beliefs that propel you towards your goals. You have an opportunity to radically change your way of thinking. And this will motivate you to have a growth mindset, one that not only gives you the courage to follow through but also allows the spirit of openness, innovation and creativity to flourish.

SCORPIO ♏︎
The New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your home, your family, and your roots.

This may sound cheesy, but the New Moon brings an opportunity to fill your heart with more love so that you can feel more at home within your own home. And self-forgiveness is one of the key ingredients. Forgiving yourself for wanting more. For wishing you could do better. For wishing things could be different. And the truth is, it can be. You will also have a Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th highlighting a part of your sky that has to do with your wishes and highest aspirations. What you share represents your beliefs and values.

SAGITTARIUS ♐︎
The New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th highlights a part of your sky that has to do with the way you perceive the world and how it influences your communication process. As a Sagittarian, you are known for your often brutal honesty, but you also have the capacity to speak with purpose, precision, and power. When you speak, there are infinite possibilities of what you could say. It's about time you took ownership of how your communication is received. This will allow you to frame your language in a way that is more enlightening, empowering, and also refreshing. You will also have a Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th highlighting a part of your sky that has to do with your career, legacy and how you are seen as a figure on the world stage.

This mental rewiring paves the way for a journey filled with new and exciting possibilities.

______________________________________

CAPRICORN ♑︎
The New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your physical senses, personal values and the way you feel about your possessions. Success and failure are often viewed monetarily, and there is something about money that speaks to our core values. Do you measure your worth in dollars? Or have you found a balance between how you feel and what you earn? Whatever the case may be, recognizing that you are doing your best will help you embrace the impermanence of life. It may sound paradoxical, but as you learn to let the outcome go, you will find new meaning in the process, and from there, new spirit. You will also have a Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th highlighting a part of your sky that has to do with broadening your mind and horizons. Believing allows you to see the many paths to success. As you reconsider what you believe, you find new, creative solutions to old problems. Believe better, worry less.

______________________________________

AQUARIUS ♒︎
The New Moon on February 4th highlights a part of your sky that has to do with well, you! Happy New Moon, Aquarius! Whether you made New Year's resolutions or didn't make any at all, this is the perfect time for you to start anew! You understand that in order to change your day-to-day behavior you also have to change your thinking. This will help you in making resolutions that you can actually keep and that are practical. So what's practical? Doing one thing at a time. Accepting lapses as part of the process. Rearranging your environment to reinforce your new habits. You will also have a Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th highlighting a part of your sky that has to do with deep transformation, rebirth, and magick. The answers to your most pressing questions lie within you. What are you pretending not to know? In what way are you being perceived, that you're not aware of? With new self-awareness, you recognize what needs to be done today/this week/month.

______________________________________

PISCES ♓︎
The New Moon in Aquarius on February 4th highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your subconscious mind, intuition, dreams, and imaginations. Carl Jung once said, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate." What is your WHY? As you dig deep into yourself, you will see that there is something beneath money, success, and freedom. You will see your true purpose. And what is that purpose? The New Moon will help you see the answer. You will also have a Full Moon in Virgo on February 19th highlighting a part of your sky that has to do with your partnerships and relationships of any kind. What would you say to your self from 10 years ago? What would you say to your self from 10 years to come? Who you are is the sum of your experiences as well as people who have taught you about who you are and who you are not. Who you are today is something worth celebrating. Celebrate your wisdom. Your knowledge. Your power.

New Moon in Capricorn | Losing Your Fears (+ Horoscopes for Every Sign)


Photography by Andrew Spencer

● | ● | ● | ●

January 5th, 2019

 New Moon in Capricorn: 
 You'll never be ready. It's all a leap of faith! 

It's about time you looked Saturn and Pluto straight in the eye. It's about time you faced your fears and escape the prison of avoidance you've put yourself in. Every fear you feel challenges you to grow more. Every fear you experience invites you to move beyond old limitations. What will happen if you faced your fears? What will happen if you had no fear? Do you want to break out of your current restrictive patterns and live a happier and freer life?

Know that living a happy and free life is not about being irresponsible. It is also not about living a life of non-stop partying and traveling the world. A happy and free life begins with accepting your truth. It starts the moment you decide to be open with life. It may sound very simplistic, but you'd never realize how many times you innately said no to new things. New people. New experiences. You'd never realize how many times you closed yourself off to life.

"Every fear you feel challenges
you to grow more"

Facing your fears (Saturn) is what bridges the gap between you and your biggest opportunities. Owning your truths (Pluto) is what pushes you to use your voice in a way that can transform you and others around you. It all starts with YOU. You can start by figuring out what it is that you are going to stand for. When you have a sense of clarity and purpose for yourself and your life, you can start the journey of stepping out of your comfort zone. With renewed perspective, you also begin to meet people at their level. 

Trusting your actions and your words creates a shift in your relationships where conversations are infused with authenticity. This is your moment to take the leap. To dig deeper. To reach a little higher. Imagine the possibilities when you don't let fear get in your way. Stepping out of your comfort zone empowers you to operate from that position of self-leadership. So go ahead. Break out. Move forward and live the life of authenticity that you were born to live!

"Imagine the possibilities when you
don't let fear get in your way."

Happy New Moon! The Moon is joining Mercury, Saturn, the Sun and Pluto in Capricorn, marking a super evolving and renewing New Moon in the sign of the Sea Goat. How can you accept the present moment? How can you forgive your past mistakes? Is there really a way out of your current comfort zone? Closed doors begin to open when you don't let fear rule your life. You may discover more flaws, but you will also uncover new strengths when you live outside of your 'safe zone'.

This particular New Moon also happens to be a (partial) Solar Eclipse, bringing to light old modalities that no longer serve your life. What do you want to achieve in regards to your career or profession? Do you know your true calling and ways you can express yourself through that calling? Don't let fear eclipse your potential. Find the resilience to shine and follow your dreams of business and personal success. Let self-leadership fuel your bravery as you discover new opportunities to share your unique talent.

"Find the resilience to shine and follow your
dreams of business and personal success."

The Moon is forming a sextile to Neptune in Pisces and Venus in Scorpio, and you are guided to live and work your intuition. If you don't start leading from within, taking control to acknowledge your values and beliefs, you will never take responsibility for your own success, and ultimately your own happiness. Your personal power comes from continuously choosing consciously to take ownership of your life.

With the Moon's square to Mars and Uranus Rx in Aries, it's about replacing your fear with fortitude. You may have learned the rules, but that doesn't mean that you can't break them. This is not about breaking the law. This is about exploring more creative and productive ways to achieve the same (or even better) results. It's about breaking free and finding freedom as you realize that you no longer fit the mold. 

The New Moon in Capricorn is a time to embrace decision-making. When you hold back from making decisions out of fear of failure, you undermine your potential to reach any future aspiration. Which is why it's important to bring your overthinking mind into the present, focusing on what needs to be done right now. Because each small step you take towards your goals becomes big strides and carries momentum that brings you closer to your dream, your vision and your desired destination.

NEW MOON HOROSCOPES
(January 5th - 19th, 2019)

ARIES ♈︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your career, legacy and how you are seen as a figure on the world stage. With a stellium of planets at the very top of your sky, you are developing big-picture thinking. What are the big opportunities you're actually able to tackle? Honoring your unique perspective is the first step in recognizing the true vision behind your goals. From there, you can start vividly imagining the desired outcome and move your ideas to a space that is solidly based in reality - which is where your personal power resides. With your ruling planet Mars back in your sign (along with Uranus Rx), your spirit is reinvigorated and you may feel like you're ready to take on the world. Regardless of your energy levels, you have an opportunity to bring new, better ideas to light and this gives you the confidence to follow through. Affirm: I am the author of my life and the powerful creator of my own destiny.

TAURUS ♉︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with broadening your mind and horizons as well as long distance travel, higher education, philosophy, and religion. On a scale of 1-10, how open-minded do you think you've been? Open-mindedness is not about being indecisive or wishy-washy about your personal values and beliefs. Having an open mind is more about being open to creative and big-picture thinking. What lies beyond the horizon? Which roads to take that will get you closer to your goals and dreams? The quality of openness has a lot of deciding power on what kind of reality you live in. You have power at your disposal to create the kind of reality that inspires and empowers you the most. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with deep, soulful transformation, opening your heart will help you break free from mind-oriented spirituality and open worlds within you that you never knew existed. Affirm: Learning nourishes my soul!

GEMINI ♊︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with deep transformation, sex, death, rebirth, magick and taboos. Your current ability to navigate beyond the veil is your greatest asset. Seeing what lies behind the illusion and recognizing unspoken words are things that you are usually good at. But you can be more receptive now as you dig deeper into yourself to relearn what makes you tick. An opportunity for a soulful rebirth is apparent. And the reward will be more freeing and empowering than you thought possible. The message is: Let go. Let go. Let go. With Jupiter traveling through the part of your sky that has to do with your friendships and relationships,  you understand that your interactions are assignments to help you grow. You are transforming your relationship dynamics with your new openness to heartful communication. Affirm: I release the past with clarity about what has happened and what it really means.

CANCER ♋︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your partnerships and relationships of any kind. In a world where so many are faking it, what does it mean to be authentic? Being authentic is not about having no secrets — although being true yourself (and others) does involve some level of honesty. It's more about the degree to which one is true to one's character, despite external pressures. As author Brené Brown once said, "Our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance." It's about time you reflected on the masks you wear and why. By owning your core wisdom, truth and virtue, you'll attract people who are also living from their core wisdom, truth and virtue. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your daily routines; your business, health, and intimacy all become richer and livelier when your actions are in alignment with who you are. Affirm: I live my life unapologetically and inspire others to do the same.

LEO ♌︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your work, health and daily routines. New year, new routine? Many people may be thinking about their new year resolutions, but you have the support of the skies to ring in the new year with a new routine that will actually work for you. Perhaps it is more about modifying what hasn't worked for you in the past and figuring out new (and simpler) ways you can organize your days better. From your morning routine to the way you end your day. Anything that brings more laughter can help you to brighten your mood and to find the magic in everyday living. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your inner child and creativity, the new year is indeed the perfect moment for you to get creative! You can begin to see your days become more positive as you embrace your own personal growth, no matter what resolutions you make. Affirm: Fresh, new creative ideas come to me daily.

VIRGO ♍︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your inner child and creativity as well as playful romance. You begin the new year wanting to have fun, or at least wishing to bring more fun into your life. A New Moon is the perfect time to set your intentions and get creative with your visualizations. The work hard play hard concept is especially true for you at this time as you realize that lack of playfulness is limiting your potential. Being playful leads to creative thinking, which lowers your stress levels and boosts your productivity. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your home and family, you are discovering new ways to reconnect with your roots. What does home mean to you? Know that a home can be something abstract, a place in your mind. The more you are open to exploring and learning, the deeper your connection would be to the world around you - which is what is needed to feel at home. Affirm: Fun is wherever I am open.

LIBRA ♎︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your home, your family and your roots. Good communication is the key to any good relationship, but good family communication has been especially important to you. Whether you are living with your immediate family or with friends you consider family, paying attention to verbal + non-verbal information can help resolve problems that arise and create deeper emotional bonding. Exploring the 80/20 rule in communication aka spending a majority of your time listening and a minority of your time talking can also create more authentic communication dynamics. With Neptune in the part of your sky that has to do with your daily routines, you understand that creativity is just like building muscle strength that needs training to keep going. Carving out time each week to do something just for you can help you mentally, emotionally and creatively. Affirm: I am in control of the words I speak.

SCORPIO ♏︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with the way you perceive the world and how it influences your communication process. Realizing that changing the way you speak can change the way you think is the beginning of your communication transformation. You start changing your speaking patterns in a positive way when you focus on what's there instead of what isn't — aka seeing your glass as half full instead of half empty. Thoughts + ideas with negatives such as no, never, don't and not tend to dissipate your spirit. You will feel your consciousness expand as you utilize power words that arouse your interest, curiosity, surprise and even fascination. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your core values, you're realizing more and more things that you value more than money. Whether that's giving, learning, laughter, curiosity, creativity, you find power in knowing there are still doors you haven't opened yet. Affirm: I speak clearly from my heart and soul.

SAGITTARIUS ♐︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your physical senses, personal values and the way you feel about your possessions. Your values represent your unique, individual essence. Your values guide you on your path, providing you with a personal code of conduct. Can you articulate your top 5 to 10 values that are most important to you? Without undergoing a discovery process, it's challenging to identify your personal core values. The New Moon brings you the reminder to revisit those personal qualities you possess, giving you the opportunity to make those values more emotional and memorable. With Jupiter traveling through your sign, you have been asked to stretch the limits of your mind, guiding you to move beyond old personal barriers. As you begin setting new goals and action steps, you will find reasons to celebrate those small accomplishments along the way. Affirm: I know and honor my authentic values in life.

CAPRICORN ♑︎
The New Moon highlights a part of your sky that has to do with well, you! Happy New Moon, Capricorn! A stellium of planets gathers in your sign bringing you major transformation. A big soul overhaul is brewing and you're ready to rise from an emotional brink. Taking the opportunity to focus on past examples of your resilience in tough situations will encourage you to (once again) draw on this inner strength. Know your sensitive 'trigger points' and start practicing personal detachment to grant yourself the time + space to de-escalate. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your subconscious mind and imaginations, you have been guided to explore the imaginative world; combining both imagination and knowledge to tap into your creative power. Imagination is creativity in action and every business needs creativity to thrive. Allow your mind to roam free and to open you to new possibilities and futures. Affirm: I embrace myself as an unfolding and evolving creative being.

AQUARIUS ♒︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your subconscious mind, intuition, dreams and imaginations. The new year begins on a more quiet note with you wanting some alone time for some self-reflection. Whether you are still on your holiday or already back to work, finding some alone time will be valuable for your well-being and development as a creative in the world. What you may find surprising is that you can be more productive when you're alone because you can focus more effectively and concentrate fully. With Jupiter in the part of your sky that has to do with your highest aspirations and groups you belong to, this is your time to build bridges to new friendships + new cultural experiences. Broadening your circle of friends can be another big part of your push for change. Meeting new people will lead to a plethora of growing moments where you can also grow your luck. Affirm: I take full advantage of my downtime to exercise my imagination.

PISCES ♓︎
The New Moon in Capricorn highlights a part of your sky that has to do with your wishes and highest aspirations as well as your friendships and groups you belong to. Expansion. Expansion. Expansion. That's the message of this New Moon. Whether it means expanding your network, your business, or your consciousness, you are being guided to raise your game. There is no other way for you to go now but up. And this requires you to swim in reality — ugly or pleasant, to find your poetry in the real. Perhaps it's about time you boosted your online marketing presence, start integrating them with your offline marketing. Fully integrating your marketing provides new ways to communicate your vision with current customers, attract new ones and boost overall sales. So, take advantage of every opportunity to weave a new way forward where you will not only grow your business but also expand your network. Affirm: As I expand my comfort zone, I also expand my abundance.

Full Moon in Cancer | Your (Real) Emotions (+ Horoscopes for Every Sign)


Photography by Andrew Ly

● | ● | ● | ●

December 22nd, 2018

 Full Moon in Cancer: 
 Emotions. Can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em! 

How are you feeling at this exact moment and what made you feel this way? Are you full of hope or are you tired of feeling let down? What do you do when all hope is lost? How you feel at this moment tends to shape the way you perceive your tomorrow. And if you look at your emotions closely, you will see that there is always an underlying reason to them.

You may think that the reason why you were feeling annoyed is because traffic on your way to work was bad. What you may not realize right away about the real source of your agitation is actually a disagreement you may have had with someone earlier in the morning. This was just one example. There are many similar examples just like that. Times when we tend to forget the real reason behind our emotions.

"How you feel at this moment tends to shape
the way you perceive your tomorrow."

Only by acknowledging your emotions can you stop yourself from getting worked up, depressed, or fearful about your situation. Yes, you may feel shitty at first - knowing that there are certain things in life you just cannot change. The key is to stop devoting your time and energy to over-analyzing the ins and outs of your negative emotion. And to instead experience it without getting entangled in its stories. To stay with it without trying to control it.

From there, you can begin to understand your feelings better. Understand that feelings are your mental interpretation of your emotions, whereas emotions are your physical interpretation of your situation. By making your emotion conscious, you can let the message behind your feelings reveal itself. By giving your inner experiences your fullest presence, you will no longer be a slave to your emotions.

"Feelings are your mental interpretation of your emotions, whereas
emotions are your physical interpretation of your situation."

Happy Full Moon! The Moon in Cancer is forming an opposition to the Sun, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, marking an emotionally transformative and healing Full Moon in the sign of the Crab. This is your moment to re-learn how to stay centered in the midst of strong emotions, as well as deepen your understanding of yourself and others.

When life becomes difficult, you may be tempted to exaggerate your own despair. Instead of focusing on self-pity, create a list of all the things you can be grateful about. You may also be tempted to try to control your situation. Instead of wasting your energy on things you don't have control over, focus your energy on things you can actually control. One of them is your attitude. You can allow your difficult circumstances to turn you into an angry person, or you can choose to remain a hopeful person with a desire to evolve and grow stronger.

"Instead of focusing on self-pity, create a list of
all the things you can be grateful about."

The Moon in Cancer is forming a trine to Neptune and Mars in Pisces, and healing comes from accepting your feelings unconditionally. When you own your feelings, you don't belittle or beat yourself up for feeling a certain way. Instead, you open the door to knowledge and greet the message it carries as a whole. You accept the entire story and then act confidently - with your increased awareness, in the direction of clarity, wisdom and justice.

With the Moon's trine to Venus in Scorpio, truth is your guiding star. Sure, no one can know everything that's true. Our perception of truth can be different based on our culture and upbringing. Some mysteries may also contain layers of history that will take longer to unravel. That being said, there is a lot that you can still learn and explore. When you begin with the awareness of your thoughts — the understanding of how your mind processes the world, you can recognize where your feelings are leading you and move forward from a place of authenticity and openness.

"Healing comes from accepting your feelings unconditionally."

The Moon is also forming a square to Uranus Rx in Aries, and it's a good time to ask yourself, "Is my passion burning bright or is it burning me out?" It is not obligatory to have passion, yet, without one life can seem dull and less worthwhile. Having passion is not always about working non-stop towards that thing you love. It's about giving your life meaning and a reason to flourish. It's about giving yourself the vision to walk down a path of spirit, perseverance and optimism.

The Full Moon in Cancer is a time to understand and manage your emotions better. A time to consider your work-life balance to rediscover your inner equilibrium. It is also the perfect time to clear your home in order to clear your mind and spirit. Understanding that your home is where your peace should begin, can help you to declutter and make space for new energy. Allow your intuition to steer you away from emotions of the past and celebrate your return to the present where your inner state of love, alchemy and wholeness reside.
