New Moon in Sagittarius ~ Ready, Aim, Fire!

Our last new moon of 2018 will take place on Friday, December 7th at 2:20am eastern standard time. This new moon will be in the sun sign of Sagittarius. Sagittarius is known for its fiery, exciting, passionate, spontaneous energy and its quest for wisdom. You may find yourself craving adventure, travel and wanting to escape from the mundane during this time. What a great, optimistic way to finish up the end of the 2018. It’s usually a time of feeling exhausted from the busy holiday season.

There are many benefits with working with this energy during the new moon. One of the perks is not only will you feel inspired to do something about your goals, but you also will experience the cosmic push to get out there and follow through by taking action.

Over the past few months we’ve been going deep, really deep within our subconscious mind.  We’ve been cleansing, healing, releasing and shifting out of what we have concluded doesn’t serve us anymore. We’ve also been getting very clear with how we would like our lives to look moving forward without all of the unnecessary baggage that we’ve been carrying around with us for years. 

We also are experiencing the influences of Mars, Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune connects us with Pisces’ dreamy and mystical energy and has us visualizing and contemplating how we can bring our dreams into our physical reality. Mars will be cheering us on and motivating us to get out there and make some magic happen. Jupiter has returned home to its sun sign of Sagittarius. This, my friends is where the going gets great!! Jupiter is the planet of luck, faith and expansion of goals and ideas. We can compare the combination of these 3 cosmic energies with the likes of being granted 3 wishes from the Genie in the bottle! 

It’s also important to mention that the planet Mercury goes direct on December 6th.  What this means for us is that downloads and mental clarity are readily available for us to tap into during the next few weeks. It’s a prime time to map out the upcoming year with both your short term and long term goals. Also, we can look forward to our electronics not taking a poop, traffic moving along and not experiencing tons of misunderstandings through miscommunication ~ Hallelujah! 

Tips for the new moon in Sagittarius 
  • Don’t be afraid to dream big!  Go big or go home! 
  • Write down realistic deadlines for your goals and check in with these goals frequently to keep yourself accountable and on track.
  • Block out some time for traveling. If you aren’t able to get away for an extended period of time, take a day trip instead.
  • As we dream big, we mustn’t forget that this time of the year is also a time of letting go and making room for the new. 
  • Make scheduling blocks of time a priority for learning new skills, taking classes and reading books.
  • Keep an eye on your spending. Just because Jupiter is very prominent these days, it doesn’t mean the sky’s the limit. Sag can be very impulsive, so we do need to keep an eye on our impulsive indulgences.

The question is ~ Are you ready? Hopefully the answer is yes because here comes Sagittarius, the Archer encouraging us as we draw back our arrow to keep our eyes on the prize and not allow distractions to take us off course because 2019 has the potential to be our best year yet!

Blessings and Light,

November’s Full Moon Brings Truth, Communication and Possible Debates

November’s Full Moon will be in the sign of Gemini on Friday, November 23rd at 12:39 Eastern. For those of us who celebrate Thanksgiving, we will be able to view and experience the Full Moon on Thanksgiving at its height. With Gemini being at 0 degrees during this Full Moon, the energy that has been impacting us can be compared to the tarot card, The Fool. The Fool is trusting, has faith, is a risk taker and can be impulsive. The Fool also reminds us that it may be time to start over in the areas of our lives that have come full circle ~ beginning, middle and ending. 

The Sun sign that the Moon is in is Sagittarius, which connects us to the higher mind, expanded consciousness, adventure and the search for universal knowledge and wisdom. As we combine the energies of Gemini (lower mind) with Sagittarius (higher mind), we are encouraged to find a happy medium. Gemini is going to assist us with integrating the knowledge downloaded from Sagittarius and applying it to our physical, human, earthy existence.  

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet that governs the areas of communication, rationalization, transportation and information. Mercury went retrograde on November 16th and will be retrograde until December 6th. This can add to some possible miscommunication, disagreements and possibly some heated debates. Keep this information in the back or your mind as you gather with friends and family over this holiday season.

The themes for this Full Moon are:

  • Clarity ~ Finally receiving clarity in the areas where the solutions were a bit fuzzy.
  • Truth Bombs ~ Get ready because the truth is going to come out and we may not be happy about some of these truths. It is better to get to the bottom of things rather than be living an illusion. 
  • Adventure ~ Sagittarius loves adventure. Go out and explore. A change of scenery will do you a world of good.
  • Emotions Running High ~ Tempering our emotions during this time is a good idea! Sag can be quick to anger. If you then add the heightened emotions of the Full Moon, we have a possible recipe for some serious drama!
  • Be Spontaneous ~ The Fool tarot card suggests we embrace our spontaneous side and change up our routines and step outside of our day to day routines. Don’t be afraid to say “yes” once in a while to something new.
  • Engaging Conversations ~ Gemini loves a good, juicy conversation. With emotions at their monthly lunar high, the potential for turning discussions into an all out big brouha which isn’t always pleasant is quite possible. If we add in the Mercury retrograde factor, we increase the potential for misunderstandings.

Watch out for: 

  • Gossip
  • Jumping to conclusions
  • Anger, out of control emotions
  • Dishonesty

Here are some suggestions for this Full Moon

  • Journal during this time. There are many downloads coming through the veil and this phase of the Moon increases our intuition and connection to spirit
  • If at all possible, meditate during the Full Moon. You are sure to have a heightened experience.
  • Be as flexible as possible. Remember with Mercury retrograde, there may be delays in your plans. 
  • Get some movement going. Sag is a fire sign loves to shake things up. Move your body, dance, exercise and/or go for a walk outside.
  • Gemini is the sign of the Twins and they encourage us to think twice before making decisions at this time.
  • Change your scenery, travel even a day trip will do you a world of good.
  • Listen really listen. An important element of communicating effectively is listening. Listen to integrate, hear the other party and contemplate what has been said. Don’t listen just to respond.
  • Try to keep your life as balanced as possible. Gemini reminds us that too much of a good thing isn’t very healthy for us.

This Full Moon will bring us truth, wisdom, balance and will help us help us receive more clarity where previously things were a bit murky. Don’t forget to be flexible, plan way ahead for travel and enjoy the good conversations that are sure to be had with friends and family during this holiday season.

Blessings and Light,

Find Out How Your Auric Field Affects Your Ability To Manifest

Over the past month,  I have been receiving tons of channeled messages, downloads as well as a strong nudging from spirit to share with others the
concept of manifestation, belief systems and energy field mindfulness. There is most certainly a theme that  has been put into place these days and spirit has been planting people in my field so that I can be of assistance to them as well as myself with empowering and/or powering up our desires, hopes, dreams and birthing them into our physical realities. The world is a beautiful mirror and the mirror can reveal so much to us; where we are, how far we've come and where we may be headed.

The Magical Questions Are; 

  • Are you consciously aware of the thoughts and beliefs that are in your field? 
  • Do you want the current frequency in your field? 
  • What can you do to pull that old belief/frequency out of your field? 
  • What beliefs/frequencies do you want to consciously anchor into your field? 

What is the field? The energy field or field is the aura, the egg-shaped energy that surrounds the physical body. The aura has many different layers that extend out from the body The field or auric layer that spirit is referring to is the one that is closest to your physical body. It's the last phase of the manifestation process before the desire and/or belief makes its transition into the physical reality. This field of energy acts as a magnet or anchor attracting a like frequency to it. Like attracts like. I know some people struggle with this concept however, some beliefs are old, hidden and pop up when an aligning energy is calling it out of its hiding spot. It may be that the outdated belief has served its purpose and ready to be moved out of your field.

The ideal goal is to be conscious and aware of the belief systems, stories and frequencies that we are placing into our fields as well as which beliefs, worries, fears, hopes and dreams are already anchored into our fields. It is quite possible that you may find some really strong solid frequencies that you want to keep anchored in your field and it's quite possible that there are some that are outdated and no longer serve you. 

I get it, some of the stuff in there isn't pretty and it may challenge you to look at let alone pull out. However, if you're really over the old patterns that don't serve you, then you will want to do this work for yourself. 

Clearing The Field 

  1. Observation ~ Observe yourself and take a good look at the words and thoughts that you are speaking and thinking. Ask yourself;  Do I want this in my field? Do I really want to empower the current thought? If the answer is no, then simply grab it by the collar and remove it from of your field. Thank it for revealing itself and then bless it as you remove it out of your field. Try to not get caught up in the why it's there or how to prevent it from coming back. The more frequently you do this, the faster you will shift into a higher vibration. BTW,  there are will always be a few beliefs in your field that you will want to remove because they do not serve a purpose anymore. With each phase of the ascension process there will be old beliefs that no longer serve. True.Story.
  2. Journal ~ I suggest keeping a journal handy at all times. You never know what empowering mantra, affirmation and/or belief system you might want to anchor into your field. We receive downloads of information often throughout our day. I like to write these golden nuggets of wisdom so that I can reflect on them at a later date.
  3. Field/Aura Hygiene ~  Sealing and smoothing your aura/field every once in a while is an excellent spiritual hygiene practice. The field becomes muddy, cloudy and tears with regular every day stress, drama, family stuff, work stuff, health stuff, money stuff etc. Taking salt baths, saging yourself or burning Palo Santo will clear, cleanse, repair and strengthen the field. I like to use a selenite wand to comb my auric field after these activities. Selenite brings in the light, pulls out the lower frequencies and seals up the aura beautifully. Oh and selenite doesn't need to be cleansed.
  4. Keep It Judgement Free ~ When shifting our consciousness sometimes we tend to punish ourselves or judge the patterns we get trapped in. It really doesn't serve us to beat ourselves up over the past or present. Acknowledge, remove, bless and anchor in what you DO want for yourself. It's that simple. No need to complicate the process.
  5. Don't Forget Your Sense of Humor ~ The ability to laugh at ourselves and our situations is a true gift. Some of our fears are silly and it's ok to bring in humor. Laugher is a high vibration and a giggle/snort-fest is sometimes exactly what we need to shift our realities. Yes, sometimes things aren't humorous when we are in the thick of the sh#T. However, I can guarantee you spirit will bring in a mood shifter to move you into a higher vibration and laughter is often the vehicle to get you there.
Creating a thriving reality for ourselves is a heck of a lot easier than what we may perceive it to look like or what we USED to think it would look like. We don't necessarily need to take the long, drawn out path of dissecting each thought, each pattern and spend hours tracking where it originated. For some people there may be some trauma that needs extra TLC. I would like to add that each situation is unique and if you are finding that you are really triggered and struggling, then working with a trusted advisor might be the best course of action for you. But for the majority, we can take the shortcut. We, the collective are going through a HUGE shift in consciousness which is why so many of us are finding ourselves shifting our consciousness instantaneously. Each one of us has an impact on the collective and each individual that moves into self awareness, assists the collective and makes it easier for all of us to move into a place of sovereignty. 

Taking a conscious step forward is a huge step for each individual and each path is unique and precious 💕💜💕

What beliefs, frequencies and thoughts do you allow in your field?

Blessings and Light,
Laurie Barraco

October’s Full Moon in Taurus Brings Changes With Love and Money

October’s Full Moon will take place on 12:45pm eastern on Wednesday, October 24th. This Full Moon will keep us on our toes as we experience changes in our love lives and with financial status. The energy is very similar to the Tower card in the traditional tarot deck. In order for life to get better, things tend to fall apart in order for our lives to improve. During this time, we may experience the dissolution of relationships, feeling disconnected from our jobs and our finances may not be as stable as they once were. These shifts take place so that we can take an introspective look at what doesn’t serve, what does serve and create a solid foundation for our hopes and dreams. I can honestly say that we have all been feeling the rumbling and shaking of our foundations. If there is chaos in your personal life and/or with your finances, then you can bet these areas had cracks in the foundation. If there is stability and sensibility, you will not experience the energy of Tower. If there is a slight crack, which there are a few for 99% of us, spirit will assist in pointing out the crack. Not only will spirit point the crack out, but highlight it and present it front and center so that there is no overlooking it or misunderstanding what it is and why it isn’t for your highest and best good.

Cosmically the explanation for these events is that Venus is in opposition of Uranus which affects our personal life, abundance and may trigger emotional upheaval. We then add the water of Scorpio; the current Sun sign, the watery emotions of the Full Moon and we then have the potential for highly charged emotions. We can counter these emotional outbursts with the earthy and grounded energy of Taurus which is the sign that the Moon is in at this time.

This Moon is also known as the Hunter’s Moon. The Hunter’s Moon is the first Full Moon after the Harvest Moon. It’s the perfect time to begin to prepare for the future. It’s important that we strategize and prepare for long lasting security for ourselves while this Moon is in Taurus. Are you setting yourself up for success down the road or are you living hand to mouth, procrastinating and always playing catch up? This is an awesome time to set abundance, success, joy and personal fulfillment for the long haul.

Suggestions, Food For Thought To Assist You During This Time
  • Releasing Ceremony ~ Bring in gratitude and let go of the stuff that you know needs to go. Write it down, burn it, throw away the key and let it go with gratitude of course.
  • Bathing in epsom salt, sea salt, kosher salt and Himalayan salt with a pinch of rose petals to bring in unconditional love to nurture yourself during this time of transition.
  • Don’t be so quick to rush to judgment. A lot is changing right now and what you see currently will probably change over the next 2 weeks. Nothing is set in stone ~ EVER!
  • Be true to yourself. You Do You. In this time of shifts and adjustments, you may find yourself wanting to nurture and focus your attention on others who are hurting. They have their path, you have yours. You can hold space for them but they must learn for themselves as you must learn for yourself. Take care of you! Is your life yours? This energy is forcing us to look at this inquiry. Are you living for you or are you more concerned and occupied with what is taking place with someone or something in your life? It’s time to get real and step into your truth, individual path and authentic self.
  • Be practical with your spending. Are you saving for that rainy day? Are you comparison shopping? Are you being impractical and going on an emotional shopping spree?
  • Be grateful for all that you have and all that will be manifesting in your life in the future.
  • Don’t be stubborn and suffer alone. Scorpio is a trusted and loyal ally. Either seek the trusted Scorpio friend or allow Spirit to bring your ally to you. You don’t have to suffer alone. P.S. They are also excellent secret keepers so all your sh#t is safe with them.
  • Don’t slack on your spiritual practices. You need faith, love and hope now more than ever, especially during these chaotic times. Meditation, Reiki, journaling and yoga are excellent transition cures.
  • Keep cutting those negative, emotional, toxic cords as often as possible. You do not need to be corded and connected to everyone. There is a lot happening out there and people are unconsciously looking for energy/light sources. You do not need to be a light fill-up station. I repeat, You Do You.
  • Sage, sage, sage as is needed!

We can utilize this Full Moon to help us clear, shift and place ourselves in perfect alignment with our highest and best good. Don’t forget we choose to have the human experience for our individual and collective evolution so all is purposeful. By being proactive with the changes that come our way with optimism, joy, faith, excitement and determination, we can experience Heaven on Earth.  We knew and chose our “soul lessons” before we incarnated and most certainly did place a few life lines along the way in the form of guides, friends, family, gifts, passions, interests and an internal GPS. Don’t forget this! Help, guidance, love, support and hope are around us. We sometimes simply need to be reminded of this.

Blessings and Light,

New Moon in Libra ~ It's Relationship Cleanse Time

The exact time and date of the New Moon in Libra will be Monday, October 8th, 2018 at 11:47pm eastern and what an interesting cosmic time it is! It seems as if humans, animals, birds, plants and Gaia, our Earth Mother, are all going through several different purging processes. Our weather has been really off, the waters have been turbulent and toxic, there is an increase in animal/marine life attacks and the rage and anger that has been tucked way down deep with our fellow sisters and brothers is surfacing and demanding society’s attention.
There is so much that can be talked about in detail about this New Moon however, spirit is guiding me to talk about the deep upheavals that are taking place with our relationships. All of our relationships are requiring attention, re-evaluation and then taking the necessary steps to bring balance into our lives. I am referencing the giving and receiving in our relationships; romantic, familial, career, friendships, acquaintances, our bodies and also the relationship with self. 
The New Moon is in the sun sign of Libra. Libras are all about balance, justice, diplomacy, detachment and are at their best when they have healthy partnerships. The challenging aspects of Libra are they tend to remain in relationships that are not always for their highest and best good because they tend to feel incomplete without being paired with someone.  
It’s an excellent time to purge what is toxic in your life; health routines, relationships, and spirit will be a bit forceful with helping you to really let go of what isn’t serving.  Libras are also notorious for being overwhelmed when having to make executive decisions. 
Whelp, this New Moon has some interesting celestial influences that will help with our indecision and the cleansing process has already begun and has been full force for the last few weeks. Venus has gone retrograde, the New Moon is square to Pluto and is conjunct Ceres. 

Breaking Down The Celestial Influences:
  • Venus retrograde, October 5th to November 16th, 2018 — Every 8 years, the planet Venus goes retrograde. Venus is the planet of love and war. Retrogrades bring attention to our past. Therefore ex’s and old beliefs around relationships will probably come up for you to take a closer and deeper look at.
  • New Moon square to Pluto - Pluto is the planet of the Underworld, therefore, some deep, really deep emotions and memories may come to the surface to be addressed. Remember Venus is the goddess of love and war, so you may be feeling anger, rage and/or frustration as the past comes bubbling up to the surface. 
  • Ceres is conjunct with the New Moon on October 8th. Ceres is connected with women, equal rights, motherhood, nurturing and the divine feminine finding her voice and place in society. We most certainly have been experiencing this wave of conscious awareness since the January 31st Lunar Eclipse. 
How can we tap in and utilize these energetic influences? As these cosmic windows open up for us, it is important that we remember these energetic influences are meant to be tapped into as a collective to shift the consciousness on our planet as part of our soul’s journey. We can be lax and allow life to happen to us causing us to be more reactive and remain in a state of victimhood OR we can address each emotion, situation, intuitive nudge and relationship with a conscious awareness that all that takes place is purposeful for our individual and collective evolutions. 

Suggestions To Make The Most Out Of The Current Shifts
  • If something is being removed from your life and/or doors are closing, allow them to go and close! We often try to hang on to what is familiar rather than trust when things are being phased out.
  • Take a cleansing bath with epsom salts, Himalayan salts, Kosher salt, rosemary and lavender. Any type of aura cleansing bath will do you a world of good. Sealing up your aura is an important part of shifting out what doesn’t serve and then sealing up your energy field.
  • Schedule a cord cutting to cut the unhealthy emotional and energetic ties with toxic people and situations. If you do not have someone that you can go to for this service, then ask Archangel Michael to cut the cords and seal up your aura with light.
  • Carry or wear black stones suck as; black tourmaline, jet, hematite, black onyx or black obsidian. The black stones will help absorb the heaviness and yes dark energy that is shifting away from you. Also it can be helpful to carry a selenite crystal with you to bring in the light at this time.
  • Find a way to channel your rage, anger and frustrations in a healthy and productive manner. As all of the tucked away emotions come to the surface, they need to find an outlet. Exercise, spending time in nature, martial arts, screaming at the top of your lungs, writing a letter and giving it voice, punching a pillow or punching bag and/or expressing your disappointment with the appropriate receivers with tact will all help you get in touch with and shift unexpressed emotions. 
  • Drink lots of water with lemon at this time. Emotions are a water element and increasing your water intake will help you cleanse and shift the water element in your body.
  • If you’re really brave, call upon Kali, the goddess of destruction, death and time. She is also very motherly and dedicated to her children. Call upon her to help you find the strength and courage to let go of what doesn’t serve and to create healthy boundaries.
This New Moon in Libra is a mighty and powerful one. It will help give the meek a voice and courage and it has the potential to help all of us get rid of the gnarly, stagnant and deep-seated  caca that we know needs to go go. 
Blessings and Light,

New Moon In Virgo ~ Details, Organization and Following Through by Laurie Barraco

New Moon In Virgo ~ Details, Organization and Following Through 

Virgo’s New Moon brings us a centered and grounded approach to our lives and goals which is a welcomed shift from the recent emotional and etheric Full Moon in Pisces that had just taken place in August. We began this last lunar cycle dreamily looking at our life paths, opened up our hearts and psychic channels and now have the opportunity to get down to business after leaving most of the retrograde and eclipse season behind us. The exact time of the New Moon will take place is September 6th, 2018 at 2:01pm eastern time. 

We are currently in the sun sign of Virgo which is the sign of organization, planning and discipline. There are may positive traits and behaviors that Virgo brings to the table. Virgo is an earth sign and earth signs help keep us focused, grounded, centered and are excellent manifestors. If you are a little disorganized and undisciplined, then this New Moon will help you get on track and hopefully stay on track.

Some of the positive energetic influences and traits to embrace at this time are:
  • Organization
  • Paying attention to details
  • Punctuality
  • De-cluttering, getting rid of excess that doesn’t serve ~ expenses, clothes, paperwork, relationships etc.
  • Communicating with honesty and directness
  • Feeling a strong pull to take care of oneself, especially their physical health
  • Creating and maintaining strong and steady stream(s) of income
  • Being prepared waaayyy ahead of time

New Moons are a time for planting seeds (goals) and working with these seeds (goals) for approximately 2 weeks until the fullness of the Full Moon. With the influences of Virgo, we are taking those goals and bringing a different and deeper level of maturity, seriousness and attention to detail to the table. The Virgo influence will help us with our dedication and discipline guiding us to follow through with our thoughts, words and deeds. 

There are just a few words of caution when it comes to working with this energy. Be mindful of being so laser-focused and keeping to the plan that you don’t allow yourself any wiggle room for flexibility and/or miracles.  Also, you might find yourself a little bit too critical of the journey, yourself and past mistakes. We’re all human here, so we are going to make mistakes. The mistakes we make are part of the manifestation process. We are all perfect in our imperfections.

Here are some suggestions for this New Moon in Virgo
  • Write down your goals and revisit them often. Be realistic with these goals.
  • Get grounded so that you stay focused with sage, exercise, eating rooted vegetables.
  • Carry crystals such as; citrine, celestite, fluorite, chrysocolla, amethyst and green aventurine.
  • Work with aromatherapy oils such as; lemon, frankincense, sandalwood and sage.
  • De-clutter your environment.
  • Re-read everything. Don’t just gloss over paperwork, make sure that it’s correct and right. This isn’t a time to be lazy.
  • Listen to your body and start taking better care of it.
  • Burn green, brown or beige candles. Don’t forget to write your intention on the side of your candles.

This New Moon is most certainly an excellent time to fine-tune some of the intentions you may have had for yourself this year. We are at the manifestation phase where we are beginning to see some growth and progress with our goals as they begin to take form in the physical. It’s not too late in the game to fine-tune things and change them up just a wee bit. Take advantage of this time of precision, detail and discipline. If you do so, you will have virtually poured miracle grow on your goals by giving them such close attention. 

Don’t forget to remain in a place of gratitude and humbleness as your dreams and goals begin to take shape and form. Having an attitude of gratitude is one of the most important ingredients for manifesting your heart’s desires.

Blessings and Light,
Laurie Barraco

Full Moon In Pisces ~ August 26th, 2018

August’s Full Moon in Pisces has many of us delving into the deep, mystical depths of our soul as we search for the solutions to the deepest darkest challenges we encounter as well as how to manifest our life purpose dreams into reality. The need to go on a solitary hermit-like journey within is most likely way too strong to ignore this month. We are now in the Sun sign of Virgo, and cannot deny the call to action of finding one’s purpose and grounding that purposeful purpose into the physical. Virgo’s uncanny attention to detail, discipline and strong willpower will help drive the intuitive guidance and wisdom from Pisces into a reality. The combination of these two astrological signs can assist those who have been stuck and stagnate wondering what their purpose is and how to go about manifesting their “Dream Life” into the physical plane. The Full Moon in August will take place on Sunday, August 26th, 2018 at 7:56am eastern.

The summer of 2018 has been a bit wonky has it not? We are on the other side of the 3 recent eclipses, Mercury has gone direct yet we are still dealing with Chiron, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto which are all still retrograde. To say things may have been a bit crazy, emotional, challenging and enlightening is probably an understatement. It’s important remember that our decision to incarnate at this time is no coincidence. Those who are here living on planet Earth, most certainly are here to learn and grow. The opportunities for soul growth and evolution are to be acted upon individually for each soul. Yes, there are mass events that influence us all to come together, however, the present cosmic influences are here to assist each one of us as individual soul entities to learn, grow and heal karma not only from the current lifetime but many lifetimes as well. The ancestral lineage karma that has been passed on for many generations is ripe and ready for us to heal, shift and transform for ourselves and generations past and future.

Another cosmic event that deserves attention is the grand Earth trine that is also taking place as well. A grand trine is a geometric pattern of 3 planets that form an equilateral triangle. These 3 planets are usually all of the same element. The current trine is made of the element of earth. The planets/signs are:
Sun ~ Virgo ~ in service to loved ones and humanity, impeccable worker
Uranus ~ Taurus ~ stability, provider, beauty in earthly pleasures
Saturn ~ Capricorn ~ master architect, loyal, hard working

With these 3 strong earth elements, we are given the opportunity to set our deepest most wildest dreams into motion at this time. You could say it’s a cosmic window of opportunity. You may find yourself being very practical, grounded, disciplined, sensual and centered because of this grand trine earthy influence.

There are a few things you can do at this time to ride this powerful current cosmic wave of opportunity. Below are a few suggestions that can be of assistance during this Full Moon.

  • Meditate
  • Write down your biggest, baddest, kicka@# goals
  • Pay attention to your dreams and write them down if you remember them
  • Get physical ~ exercise, spend time out in nature 
  • Connect with the element of earth ~ crystals, herbs, plants and eat root vegetables
  • Be proactive when your unhealthy habits come to the surface, they are ready to be healed and transformed
  • Carry earth(Virgo) amazonite, carnelian, howlite and water(Pisces) crystals aquamarine, laboradite, moonstone, fluorite with you 
  • Resist Pisces’ urge to go underground and withdraw from society and avoid challenges
  • Embrace and acknowledge your heightened intuitive senses at this time courtesy of the Full Moon and Pisces’ influence
  • Set time aside to connect with the mystical side of yourself, ask questions, get to know the inner self
  • If something is coming up to be released, let it go, bless it first with gratitude and then trust in the timing of the letting go
  • Burn a purple candle for intuition/guidance and red/brown candle for grounding your intention/vision into the physical 
  • Wear essential oils such as frankincense, myrrh, lavender, patchouli and bergamot 
  • If you find yourself overly emotional, acknowledge your feelings, feel them and then take a look at why you’re triggered
  • Put your crystals outside during the Full Moon to soak up the luminous lunar energy
  • Balance your third eye and root chakras

All Full Moon events are powerful and purposeful for each and every one of us. It is truly beneficial for us to be conscious of the cosmic frequencies so that we may utilize them for the evolution of our souls, the personal fulfillment within our purposes and to share our light, love and wisdom with those we encounter. 

May you be blessed beyond measure,
Laurie Barraco

Lightworkers Are Hearing The Call of This Month's Aquarius Lunar Eclipse Full Blood Moon

The Full Moon for July will take place on Friday, July 27th at 4:20pm Eastern. July’s Full Moon has a few extra cosmic elements woven into it and we as a collective are all feeling its glorious effects. Full Moons are always a time when we experience a blast of lunar and solar energy that is enhanced by the astrological signs that it is in. The possible triggers we experience depends upon the signs the moon and sun are in. 

Lunar eclipses bring attention to our relationships and this month’s Full Moon brings about two polar opposite signs: Leo and Aquarius. The combination of these two signs will highlight imbalances in our personal and impersonal relationships, our private lives and our public lives, the intimate relationships and acquaintance/friend relationships. 

This month, the Moon is in Aquarius and the Sun is in Leo. Aquarius is known as the humanitarian sign where the focus is on what’s best for the greater good and not receiving for the self alone. They are also extremely intelligent, are problem-solving oriented and can be shy, but love being part of a team. The sign of Leo loves to be the center of attention, Leo a natural born leader, is very creative, confident and thrives in motivating and leading the pack. As you can see, both of these signs will have a huge impact for all Lightworkers to step into their humanitarian roles of leadership and healing as a collective. We are beginning to see a rise in people who are seeking deeper ways of fulfilling their spiritual callings and practices.  

Feeling the fire, courage and inspiration from Leo’s fiery energy can be a blessing to get you to take action when it comes to moving out of the places where you feel really uncomfortable. Don’t forget that Mars is a fire sign as well, therefore, the desire to do something about your discomfort or the pull start something new is very strong during this time. It may be best to channel your creativity towards doing something physical such as painting, dancing, journaling, singing, rearranging furniture etc. This action will help settle your restlessness and give you some time to process your emotions which quite possibly be significantly triggered this month. 

Let’s take a look at the cosmic influences that are woven into this month’s Full Moon

  • Lunar Eclipse - A Lunar Eclipse is when the moon passes into the Earth's shadow. The Earth is equally between the Sun and the Moon. This event has a very strong impact on our shadow side, our unpleasant patterns, belief systems, and behaviors. Not only will our shadows be highlighted, but the unfavorable behavior of others will come to light and be placed front and center stage as well. The blessing during this time is that what is not favorable, desirable, or ethical behavior will be brought out into the open for all to work on healing and correcting
  • Mercury retrograde -  (July 26th - August 19th) When the planet Mercury,  goes retrograde, we can expect a few possible challenges with communication, electronic mishaps, being late, anger, an increase in mistakes, a rise in accidents and people from your past coming back into your life. On the brighter side, you have the opportunity for do-overs in different areas of your life like your financial status, re-coloring your hair, preparing your car etc.
  • Mars retrograde  - (June 26th August 27th) Mars is going to push introverts towards finding their voices and speaking up loudly and proudly. Mars is also known as the Lord of Karma, so you will also be given the opportunity to not only speak your truth with others but also with those who may have intimidated and harmed you in the past.
  • Blood Moon  - When a Lunar Eclipse takes place, the Moon appears to darken in color as it moves into Earth’s shadow. When this happens, the Moon isn't completely dark, it takes on a reddish color. What you are seeing at this time are sunbeams peeking out from the edge of the Moon, hence the name Blood Moon. The Blood Moon emphasizes the influence of being completely honest and truthful with yourself. When we are transparent, there is nothing to hide or cover up. Often there is a sigh of relief as we clear out the muck within our minds and negative ego. Let's face it, there isn't anywhere that is safe to hide. Everywhere we go, there we are.
  • Thunder Moon/Buck Moon - Given these names because this is the month of thunderstorms and the bucks start to grow their antlers.

What You May Experience This Full Moon
  • Highly charged emotions
  • Feeling really uncomfortable in your relationships
  • Boundaries are needing to be established within your relationships
  • Heightened sense of intuition
  • Dreams are a bit crazy and vivid
  • Drama and chaos seems to to follow you 
  • An increase in disagreements

Here are a few tips for this Full Moon:
  • Ground and center yourself, stay present in the moment.
  • Think before you act. Give yourself time for your emotional triggers to run their course. 
  • Write down in your journal what’s happening within you and outside of you. 
  • Meditate, or increase your meditation time.
  • Be mindful of your words and do your best to not overanalyze what others are saying and not saying
  • Embrace the Lightworker within you and seek out ways that you can share your light and love with the collective.
  • Give yourself extra time due to possible delays.
  • Be open to visitors from your past popping in to clear the air. Keep an open mind, heart and ear during these meetings.
  • Delve into the intuitive or healing arts with a class or book. 
  • Write a letter to someone who has hurt you in the past, then read it out loud in front of a mirror. Sometimes it is not possible to speak your truth face to face, a mirror will work as an excellent substitute.

We truly are at a groundbreaking and pivotal point in time as a collective where many are hearing the call of spirit to be more tolerant and mindful of their brothers and sisters. So many people are stepping up to the plate and are taking responsibility for their own healing journeys and then are turning around and inspiring others to do the same. The “What’s in it for me?” mindset is becoming less and less fulfilling for many. Lightworkers are not only stepping into the light but are shining that light so brightly that others cannot help but be positively influenced by it. A beautiful time to be here on planet Earth, indeed. 

Blessings and Light,
