“The winter solstice, falling on December 21, 2018, will mark the shortest day of the year as well as a full moon in the night sky. The upcoming full moon named the Cold Moon or the Long Night Moon will be visible during the longest night of the year.”

A solstice and full moon together hasn’t happened since 2010!

The 2018 winter solstice will be accompanied by what NASA notes as the Cold Moon or the Long Night Moon. The names originate from the Native Americans, who marked December’s full Moon as the beginning of the coldest part of the year. Also, the Long Night Moon is named after the longest night of the year on the winter solstice.

How often do these events coincide, where the winter solstice is adorned by a full moon? The last time it occurred was in 2010 and the next event will not be until 2094. On December 21 you will also be able to see Mercury and Jupiter in conjunction in the long night sky. On top of all that, the Ursid meteor shower will peak on the nights of December 21 and 22, adding shooting starts to the mix. Read the full article here…..

New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse August 2018

Super New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse August 2018

New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse August 2018Are you ready for the Super New Moon partial Solar Eclipse in Leo on Saturday (8/11)?  According to several Astrologers this one will amplify and “super charge” the new moon.

Keep this in mind when you create your New Moon intentions because whatever you put out there will be super amplified.

Typically, new moons signal a time to chill and think about life, and maybe even throw some meditation into the mix. (This one is “super” because it’s happening when the moon is very close to Earth in its orbit, according to NASA, making the moon look bigger.) But Leo is a powerful sign, which makes this a little more intense than your usual new moon.

During this particular new moon, you’ll feel like you have one last chance to get in touch with your heart and what makes you happy, says Donna Page, a professional astrologer with a graduate degree in counseling psychology. You’ll also start to feel some serious self-love and self-acceptance vibes—like, dance-naked-in-the-rain levels of self-love.~Women’s Health

With this summer of retrograde this New Moon Solar Eclipse will offer a breath of fresh air as it only happens once every 19 years. What would you like to grow? What would you like to see manifest in your life? Start focusing with clarity and state your intentions in the positive with no doubts.

Clearly visualize what it is you want, watch the image grow and become more detailed then give it to yourself… Manifesting Hint: Put the image in a beautiful rose and then welcome it into your heart. (If you want to know more about how to do this, join me for an Awakening Souls Meditation Workshop)

There is a strong, high vibrational energy surrounding August’s Solar Eclipse which is really going to allow us to see things with greater clarity. Think of this Eclipse as a great illuminator, which is going to help shed light on areas of your life that have felt foggy or confusing.

If you need to make a decision on something, or if you are waiting for clarity, it could very well be that this Eclipse delivers some news your way.

There is a ‘wildcard’ energy around this Eclipse also, which means that it could stir up things that we didn’t see coming. There may be some new information we need to deal with, or we may find that we have overlooked an important detail.

This energy is particularly strong seeing as retrograde Mercury is also very active around this Eclipse.

With this Eclipse, we would benefit from allowing the high vibrations to penetrate, open, and illuminate us. We would benefit from finding our still point and allowing the light to shine where it needs to shine.

It may take a few days before we can fully see into the heart of the truth, but if we remain still, if we continue to remain patient, we will receive the answers we have been seeking.

August’s Solar Eclipse wraps up a very heavy cycle. A cycle that was really beckoning us to enter into this death and rebirth phase.~Tanaaz, Forever Conscious

Bottom line to all of this is to stay aware, mindful and in present time. Practice stillness in mind, body and spirit. Focus inward, listen to and follow your heart where it beckons you to go. Even if you only have clarity about one thing add the details, watch it grow, give it to yourself and make your heart happy!~Shine Your Light Debbie
