New Moon in Aquarius: Reclaiming Freedom

✨♒️🌑 Reclaiming personal freedom and liberating our most authentic self. This is what the new moon at 27° Aquarius asks us to attempt. On February 15th, the Sun and Moon conjoin for their monthly meeting, rising together in the morning and setting together in the evening. They spill the secrets of things yet to come and encourage life on earth to reset for the month ahead. This dark moon in Aquarius holds special importance, for it’s also a partial solar eclipse. This solar eclipse serves as the action oriented counterpart to the emotions that began stirring back on the lunar eclipse on January 31st. Eclipses always occur in pairs. Events that occur around this time begin to set the tone of the next six months, until the next eclipse series begins in July 2018. Look around your chart and see if you have any points at 27°, for this eclipse will be directly affecting that planet and area of life.

⚡️💛 During a solar eclipse the moon obstructs a portion of the sun and for a brief moment the moon reigns supreme, darkening the solar essence. Eclipses are inherently emotional, as the very presence of the phenomena comes as somewhat of a natural disruption. Can you imagine how people thousands of years ago must have reacted to this frightening occurrence, when their life giving sun was suddenly swallowed into the darkness of the moon? Eclipses itself have been heralded as an omen for centuries, but good and bad are often two sides of the same coin. Eclipses are wildcards. They rush things into our lives and they occasionally pull the rug out from under us. Embrace any changes that stir within you or any actions outside of your control that take place at this time. Most often, abrupt endings or changes can help pave the way for growth and new beginnings.

🌞🌑🌀 This Aquarius new moon and solar eclipse is conjunct the tiny communicator planet Mercury, entangling the winged messenger’s own story into our eclipse tale. Our thoughts, ideas, and speech get sucked into the vortex. It’s time to use our voices and breathe life into our unique visions and ideas. We should let our minds meander into a more meditative state now, and a less media-induced one. This new moon promises aid to those writing out their personal perspectives as well as speaking their truths. The new moon is also in a positive aspect to change-bringer Uranus, allowing for new opportunities, if one only reaches out to grab them. Uranus can aid in breaking out of our own ruts, if we only trust the process and embrace newness.

🌀🔆 Last but not least, this new moon features action-oriented Mars and disorienting Neptune in a square. This may mean that actions taken at this time may be done haphazardly or with confusion. While new moons are often great times to plant seeds of intention, we may need to hesitate awhile before taking any firm action. Mars/Neptune can weaken energies and make us susceptible to tiredness. We can also fall prey to escapism through substances as an outlet instead of exercising our bodies physically to release. The ideas and goals we hold in our minds for this new moon may This new moon would be best spent doing some yin yoga, meditative thought, and writing. Giving your mind a good rinse is key with this eclipse, for it's time to throw out whatever doesn’t need to be floating around needlessly in your brain. Meditation and calming the mind is truly a discipline, which is fitting see as Aquarius is traditionally ruled by the master of self-control, Saturn.

Delving Deep Into Collective Consciousness: Aquarius Season

💙♒️ Happy February everyone! Aquarius season is well underway, with the Sun, Venus, Mercury, and the south node currently inhabiting the sign of the water bearer. Our hearts and minds are geared towards delving deeper into the collective consciousness, as we ponder how we each as individuals fit into the larger picture of our society. Aquarius is a fixed air sign, meaning its job is to maintain and stabilize the rest of the season, as a fixed sign, and to turn us away from our emotions and towards the detached rationale and logic of the mind, as an air sign.

Zodiac Mack for Oui We

♒️👫 Aquarius energy longs for us to connect with one another, to create friendships, to join groups, and to come hand in hand with humanity. Aquarius also represents the ever unique, non-conformist in all of us. When we can openly embrace our wild inner weird, we can embrace the most authentic versions of ourselves. This is what Aquarian energy asks of us.

🌎⚡️ Meanwhile, as the freedom-loving, humanitarian Aquarian parade marches on, Saturn and Pluto continue to trudge through Capricorn. Saturn here asks us to stand firmly behind our convictions, to pursue our goals with diligence, and to be utterly self reliant. Pluto has been in Capricorn for the last 10 years, tackling societal taboos around power and control. These two planetary heavy hitters will stay in Capricorn’s realm for some time to come, flushing out further issues of government, abuse of power, and perceived authority in our society. Jupiter, the planet of spiritual and psychological growth, continues to move forward through the depths of Scorpio. Jupiter in Scorpio has been assisting in the ongoing exposure of sexual taboo and abuse in our society, revealing that sexuality is where we need to place our focus, in order for us all to achieve some deeper healing.

🔥♐️ Mars, having freshly entered Sagittarius, finds himself in a more loud and rowdy position than in quiet, suppressive Scorpio. Mars primarily gives us the gifts of energy, action, and self assertion. Mars’ stay in Sagittarius offers us the wherewithal to tackle uncharted territory, to dream big, and to explore spirituality and philosophy. We have stronger faith in our beliefs and ideals at this time, which can help in taking physical action towards accomplishing our more lofty goals. Mars in Sagittarius can also have us believing that whatever we think to be true must be true for all, potentially making us a little unrelenting when it comes to hearing other people’s points of view. Hopefully we can all tap into the abundance of thoughtful, observant Aquarius energy to work hand in hand, instead of fist and fist!

A Collective and Creative Lunar Eclipse in Leo

🌜✨ On January 31st, we are graced with the first eclipse of the new year, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse at 11° Leo. Lunar eclipses are like full moons on crack. They’re often emotionally turbulent and act as strong internal catalysts for change. Solar eclipses often bring on events outside of ourselves or our direct control, where lunar eclipses plant the idea of our next move through our thoughts and feelings about the current situation. This eclipse ties back to the Solar Eclipse of August 21st, 2017. Whatever actions or events that took place around August of last year are now beginning to bear fruit and may require some necessary adjustments.

Zodiac Mack for Oui We

🌙💧 Lunar eclipses are primarily active on an internal level, so take a good hard look around your inner landscape. Whatever hints are being revealed to you at this time likely hold the plan for your next step. This can be a strongly emotional time for everyone, so try to allow for space and patience with yourself and others. Our best judgement may not be employed at this time and it’s ideal to keep a light schedule of things can get a little hectic. Eclipses can make us all a little wonky and feel a little crazy, as they usher in a period of rapid change and growth.

🌟 Not all eclipses are created equal! Some pass by with little to no notice while others seem to usher in an entire new set of life circumstances. This is because in order for an eclipse to be specifically important to you, it needs to be activating a planet in your chart. For example, this eclipse degree occurs at 11° of the Leo/Aquarius axis. Look around your chart and see if any of your planets or points are around 10,11,12° degrees, for this indicates that there will be activity surrounding this planet. If on this go around nothing in your chart is particularly active, simply keep an eye on the houses that the eclipse is occurring in for you, wherever Leo/Aquarius falls. This will still be an area of ongoing activity, though it may appear to be more subtle than if it were activating a planet.

♌️♒️ We’ve all been learning lessons from the Leo/Aquarius axis since last May. Leo and Aquarius themes represent: The individuals expression vs. The collectives expression, Personal Love vs. Detached Love, Spontaneous Creativity and Collective Creation. We’re learning to find our individual place in our society. We’re learning to surrender our personal egos to for greater good. We’re also bringing our personal creative vision into building the future world before us. This is what the Leo/Aquarius axis is all about. 

Look below and read for your Rising Sign to see what areas of life will be activated by this eclipse for you!

♈  Aries Rising- 5th/11th Houses activity- Romance, Creativity, Friendships, Groups, Self Expression.

♉  Taurus Rising- 4th/10th Houses activity- Home, Family, Parents, Career, Reputation, Recognition

♊ Gemini Rising- 3rd/9th House activity- Education, Siblings, Neighborhood, Mind, Spirituality, Religion, Travel

♋  Cancer Rising- 2nd/8th House activity- Values, Income, Property, Finances, Loans, Debts, Inheritance

♌️ Leo Rising- 1st/7th House activity- Body, Self Image, Appearance, Relationships, One on Ones, Marriage 

♍  Virgo Rising-6th/12th House activity- Health, Employment, Coworkers, Employees, Solitude, Retreats, Restoration

Capricorn New Moon

☉☽ Today marks a most potent first new moon of 2018, with the Sun and Moon aligning at 26° Capricorn. It’s time to reach beyond our envisioned boundaries. It’s time to make a fool of our fears. If you haven’t fully committed yet to your new years resolutions, don’t be discouraged! This new moon actually marks the best time to begin getting focused and organized towards accomplishing those goals we decided on a few weeks ago. On New Years day we had a full moon in Cancer, in which emotional activity was heightened and the issues of our current situations highlighted and on display. Full moons aren’t an ideal time to begin a new regimen, for they’re more geared towards awareness and illumination. New moons on the other hand are all about new beginnings, and they’re flavored by whatever sign they take place in. Today’s new moon takes place in Capricorn, a sign dedicated to fulfilling it’s personal journey and accomplishing it’s greatest dreams. Today is the real day for creating and enacting your plan for the year to come.

Capricorn New Moon

🌑♑️✨ The moon is dark in the sky, waiting patiently to be painted with light and infused with energy for the goals that lie ahead. With the new moon in earthy and material Capricorn, it’s super important for us to write our intentions down on paper. Capricorn is a realistic and down to earth sign, so wishy-washy goals that float about in our minds don’t stand a chance of lasting here. Write down what matters, make it physical and concrete. Put it somewhere you will frequently notice as a reminder to yourself. Capricorn energy is all about learning to cultivate self-discipline and autonomy. 

Plant your seeds and set your intentions, for we will reap what we sow this year, and we’re gonna need a lot of plain old hard work to do it. Currently 6 planets reside in the sign of Capricorn, making the energy of the sky lop-sided and simultaneously hyper focused on the energy this sign represents. This abundance of planets in the zodiac’s only Cardinal Earth sign tips the scales for all of us, as we’re asked to really hone in on our ability to commit to hard work and personal ambition. Believing in ourselves and our journey in life becomes increasingly paramount.

💜♑️💫 Whatever planets the new moon is in contact with flavors the month ahead and tells us where to look for upcoming themes. This new moon features close contacts with Venus, Mars, Chiron, and Uranus - making this a potentially emotionally charged and romantically flavored time for healing and growth. The new moon is conjunct with the planet of love and relationship, Venus, which imbues the month ahead with a strong focus on relationship energy. This conjunction suggests our intimate relationships and values play a bigger role than average over the next month. The new moon also forms a sextile to Mars, our ability to self assert ourselves, and Chiron, our ability to heal our wounds. Mars gives us a boost of added energy at this time in order to tackle our projects, while Chiron offers us the opportunity to take a look at some old wounds that may need tending to. Last but not least, the new moon is square to unstable and chaotic Uranus, perhaps hinting to us of surprises, revelations, break ups, and shake ups still to come over the next month. If anything this can help to give us breathing room from a stale situation. So while we are reaching for the stars and pursuing our most meaningful goals, we also have to contend with the growth of our relationships and the old wounds that still fester in our psyches. We have to allow for change to refresh us instead of frighten us, and we have to get dead serious about what we want and who we want to become.

Sun, Venus, Pluto Conjunction

Today’s rare and intense Sun, Venus, Pluto conjunction can feel a little bit too reminiscent of a tightening vice grip. The Sun is flanked on one side by transformational Pluto, and on the other by relationship-oriented Venus. The pressure is on to dig deep into our hearts and shake the hands of acceptance and responsibility for our own journeys. Any authority figures looming over us that inhibit our truest expression of self becomes absolutely unbearable today. We must surrender to the intensity of this energy and ultimately allow for something false about our lives and our stories to die. 

Zodiac Mack | Oui We

 

This powerful triple conjunction occurs in the sign of Capricorn, a sign deeply involved in taking responsibility for oneself and the achievement of one’s most meaningful goals. When the Sun and Pluto get closely involved, as they are today, power comes to the forefront of our minds. We want to set fire to the things that bind us and break the chains that restrain us. We want desperately to reclaim our personal power. While this isn’t the most comfortable energy to manage, it most assuredly is one of deep regeneration.

 

Pluto’s job is to break down the old and outworn parts of our lives. It represents a source of purifying fire. Venus is also involved in this alignment today, meaning our relationships and emotional baggage must walk through these flames with us. Fire can reduce and cleanse as much as it can destroy. Envision the stifling situations that you can no longer deal with being engulfed by this renewing fire. Picture any residual emotions from the last year that still bear weight crumbling to ashes all around you. You will remain standing soft and unharmed, but what needed to be destroyed will have gone. This is the work of this Sun, Venus, Pluto conjunction. Allow for the death of the old and unhelpful. Allow for the false narrative about your life turn to whispers. Embrace your inner Khaleesi, I promise you will come out the unburnt.

Moon in Virgo: Release & Return

✨♍️🌙 This morning, the disseminating moon left the glitz and glam of Leo behind and moved forward into careful, and thoughtful Virgo. Whenever the moon is waning, losing light, we begin to enter into a phase of release and return. Projects and situations typically peak at the culmination of the full moon, and then subsequently enter into a more thoughtful and introspective stage of activity when the moon loses light. With the moon moving through hard working and service-oriented Virgo, we ponder what parts of our lives need further restructuring. What little details may have slipped past our attention over this last lunar cycle? What could we be doing to help ourselves become more organized and efficient in our work? This is what the Virgo moon wants you to meditate on.

Mackenzie for Oui We

♍️💫🌎 The Virgo moon starts Friday morning out with a strong trine to Saturn, giving us the encouragement to work a little harder and push ourselves a little further when it comes to developing our passion projects. Trines are harmonious aspects that allow for a fast and easy flow of energy between two planets. Saturn is always happy to give a helping hand to those who are willing to work with effort, diligence, and most of all patience. So why does he get such a bad rep in astrology? Well, note that Saturn only seems to be dreaded by those who rest on their laurels, perform lazily, or act irresponsible and expectant. Embrace the energy of this work oriented trine to hammer out any important details before the weekend begins. 

⚡️💥⚡️ Mercury, still recovering from his retrograde, is moving forward in Sagittarius and is coming into a trine with Uranus. Mercury and Uranus allow insight and flashes of brilliance to ring through our conscious minds. Remember that trines allow fast and harmonious flows of energy! Keep a journal near by to write down sudden things that dawn on you over the next few days. These planets are naturally quick and mentally oriented so they can stimulate thoughts and ideas at lightning speed. Also, be mindful that they can exacerbate nervous energy and overflow our brains with too much stimulus as well. Try to make the space to meditate or breathe it out if you feel like this Mercury/Uranus energy is a little too much for you. 

⚔🔥💙 Mars and Jupiter perfect their conjunction at 17 Scorpio today, giving us extra strength to believe in our highest dreams and aspirations. Tackle the unimaginable today and use this conjunction to go after what you normally would feel a little too shy to try. Confidence and belief in one’s self will be rewarded to those who dare step up to the plate!

The Astrology of New Year's Eve

New Years Eve, a night cast aside by the jaded and cherished by romantics. A nervous energy buzzes about, as the hours of the night progress and we prepare ourselves to welcome in a brand new year. Eventually, the long awaited countdown arrives by way an excited, drunken chant. 3, 2, 1- Happy New Year! The kiss-less blow little paper horns and toss enticing eyes to strangers. The couples in the room smile, encouraging one another of their duration for the coming year. We all enter into uncharted territory, whether we’re ready or not, unsure of just what will happen next..

Zodiac Mack for Oui We

The astrology of NYE is a positive one to report, in my opinion. The moon will be inching ever closer to fullness through out the night, but will not reach its peak until Jan 1, approximately 9:30 PM EST. We’re graced with a rather social moon for NYE, as the moon transits through the last degrees of Gemini for the remainder of the evening. Gemini Moons generally make us more chatty, excited, and sociable. It’s a good night to grab your friend group and hit the town. The Gemini Moon makes only one aspect through out the night, a sextile to Uranus in Aries. Sextiles are harmonious aspects and they offer us opportunities. The opportunities offered by a sextile are those that must be reached out and taken though by ones own initiative, they are not simply handed out. This sextile between the Moon and Uranus gives us an opportunity to do something exciting and out of our normal comfort zone. If something unusual, perhaps a person or a party, seems appealing to you tonight, go for it! (side note: please, always consult your common sense and intuition. I’m not saying do a mountain of cocaine and hop aboard a strangers yacht..unless that’s how you roll!)

With 4 planets currently moving through serious and hardworking Capricorn, we’ve been paying more attention to our long term goals. We’ve been learning more about commitment- to ourselves, our partners, or our soul’s work. Tonight is a good time to unwind and socialize, letting whatever stress this new energy has brought in reside a bit. The gemini moon will ask us to be animated and to chat up a storm with our pals- perhaps about the goals and resolutions we want to take into the new year. Last thing to be mindful of- Mars and Jupiter are currently forming a close conjunction in Scorpio. This is an energetic and intense pairing. Mars represents energy, self-assertion, war, and libido. Jupiter represents expansion, abundance, and growth. “Beating a dead horse” comes to mind for me with a Mars/Jupiter aspect. We need to mind our tempers, for they can grow a little out of hand, as well as our sexual energy which becomes a bit more ferocious. Beware of over-doing, especially with substances, because Mars and Jupiter are conjunct in Scorpio- a sign which represses and pushes things down. The tendency to intoxicate/poison oneself is likely to be stronger than taking physical action or speaking out against another. Have yourself a safe and lovely NYE! Get out and socialize, take up the opportunity to try something new, and mind the booze intake!

Winter Solstice

❄️♑️ Happy winter solstice everyone! The Sun has just entered into the sign of Capricorn and is conjunct Saturn today. Can you sense the subtle shift taking place around us? Saturn, as of yesterday, happily returned home to the sign he has rulership over, Capricorn. Saturn and Capricorn are close kin, for they share a very similar set of standards and goals. Whatever house we have Saturn moving through in our chart, or residing in natally, is where we need to learn self discipline. Saturn asks that we go through things alone and that wherever we go, we always hold a flame for our innermost sense of self. 

Winter Solstice | Zodiac Mack for Oui We

♑️ Capricorn is a sign associated with the mountain goat, one who resiliently climbs the highest mountains in order to reach whatever prize awaits at the top. Capricorn is associated with hard work, power, ambition, and achievement. Saturn in Capricorn beckons all of us to take ourselves seriously. He asks us to do the work of our soul, to haul our true passion on our back up the cragged mountain, even if it maims us or leaves us breathless. 

♐️—>♑️ For the last three years, Saturn in Sagittarius has taught us to dream about our vision. We were put to work in the realm of our imagination. We were asked “who do you long to become? what do you wish to accomplish in this life?” Now, Saturn has moved into one of the most hardworking and realistic signs of the zodiac. The time for day dreaming is over. It’s time to put your nose to the grind stone and work hard to manifest the results you’ve been dreaming of. Saturn will remain in Capricorn until 2020.

🔥 Saturn in Capricorn will teach us to be alone, to trust ourselves, and to make peace with solitude. We should be mindful of a tendency to become melancholic during these times, because we can become so hard wired to accomplishing our goals that other facets of life can accidentally fall to the wayside. Saturn is also associated with inhibition and fear, which is something we must also continually challenge and question, as we work our hardest to become who we want to be. 

☃️ Last night I sat with a friend and we joked to each other about Saturn, asking if either of us had felt the shift in signs even though it had only been one day. We laughed, for of course we didn’t wake up suddenly feeling super ambitious and able. But afterwards we did notice something small. We had committed to trekking out in the cold to take an intensive yoga and meditation class. That simple and small commitment to one’s own physical and mental well-being is actually what Saturn is all about! We had earned a feeling of achievement just by doing something mindful for ourselves and by staying true to our word about attending. Honor your Saturn in Capricorn journey by taking on commitments that you can stand by. Honor your Saturn by working hard and reclaiming your fearlessness. Honor your Saturn by being true to yourself and what you need as an individual.

Gemini Full Moon ♊️🌕✨

♊️ This December full moon blooms at 11° Gemini. Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and will be calling the shots for this emotional lunation. As of today, Mercury has initiated his retrograde dance and will be moving backwards through Sagittarius until December 23rd. Sagittarius is the archetype of the gypsy and the philosopher. Our minds want to feel free to do some wandering, perhaps back to old visions and dreams Mercury Retrograde calls for review, reflection, and introspection. 

Gemini Full Moon by Zodiac Mack

 

☿⚡️ With retrograde Mercury ruling this full moon, our thoughts can criss-cross in many directions and move at crazy speeds. Our minds can feel almost electrically charged and we can easily run ourselves mentally rampant. Remember to take a breather or find an outlet for this energy, before it makes you feel neurotic.

♊️ Gemini moons feel safe when they’re steeped in facts, logic, and rationale. In this moon sign, there can be a rather pressing need to rationalize the current state of our emotions, which over the course of this past week are sure to have been riled and twisted up. Instead of getting worked up over not being able to classify and fully understand your emotions, just try to sit with them. Write them down. Read them out. Think about them, but don’t judge them and demand their purpose or logic. The mind and the heart exist separately with different objectives for a reason!

Sagittarius Season

♐️🔮The anticipation of change grows increasingly more palpable as we boldly step ahead into the final month of 2017. Many major cosmic shifts await us in 2018, but December 2017 holds the key to the first of many transitions. The slow-moving, disciplinarian planet, Saturn, will be wrapping up a nearly three year stay in Sagittarius. On December 20th, Saturn will move into Capricorn and remain there until December 2020. Those that were born between 1988-1990 will be coming into contact with their Saturn return, a peak time in a 29 year cycle of maturation that often comes accompanied by a life crises in an area that demands further growth and exploration. 

Sag Season by Zodiac Mack

Saturn takes 29 years to move through the zodiac and return to the exact location that it inhabited when you were born. Our Saturn return can be a trying time, one where the validity of everything in our lives is questioned and tested. Am I pursuing a career that I’m passionate about, or am I just doing it to satisfy my family? Is this relationship still healthy and functioning, or does it need adjustments or a clean break? Saturn will get to the bottom of your biggest life questions and help you sort out the cool hard truth from the fluffy and phony things we tell ourselves to get by. The Saturn return is considered to be the true marker of adulthood in astrology, and surviving it only makes us stronger and more confident in following our true life path.

On December 1st, Venus left the shadowy realms of Scorpio behind, and moved into jolly and bright Sagittarius. This shift turns all eyes toward Sag season, as four planets currently occupy the sign of the archer. Sagittarius comes on the heels of Scorpio, a sign which drags us down to explore our own depths and darkness.

🌍🏹 After this emotionally, introspective time spent in the basement of our psyche, Sagittarius comes along and thrusts his arrow high into the sky from the ground below, throwing our perspective in the complete opposite direction. We go from looking inward to looking outward. From this arrow, we have a birds eye view of our lives and understanding of the world. Sagittarius is the philosopher and the never ending student, always looking to get in touch with the unfamiliar to inch ever closer to understanding purpose and meaning.  With the Sagittarius emphasis present right now, it’s a good time to get out of your comfort zone. Talk to people who are vastly different from you. Open your mind through conversation, travel, or just sitting down with a good book.

⚡️🔄 Mercury enters into his retrograde phase on December 3rd, the day of the Gemini full moon. The usual can be expected, considerable delays and frustrations with travel or electronics, general miscommunications, etc. It’s an ideal time to get introspective and review the impact of the last few months of your life.

✔️✨ Mercury will be moving backward through Sagittarius- a sign which is considered to be his detriment. Sag is all about dreaming big and exploring visions of lofty goals. Mercury is all about putting things together piece by piece, and examining every little tiny detail. You can see how the two don’t exactly mesh. Look over the goals that you’re putting into place for yourself and see how you can plan to put them into action, when Mercury moves into ambitious and serious Capricorn in the beginning of January. His backward dance through the zodiac will last until December 23rd.

Mackenzie is a Cancer sun, Pisces moon, and Leo rising- which ultimately renders her a shy sensitive emotional creature who dons the mask of a happy go lucky romantic.
