Happy Full Moon Taurus!

Greetings!

We find ourselves at the Full Moon in Taurus with the Moon in Scorpio.This may bring passion and intensity into the air, now and through the next few days, so it is wise to work with this energy. However, in addition to this full moon we have the festival of Wesak, which celebrates the birth and ascension of Lord Buddha. One of the best things you can do at this time is to take some time for yourself and re-align with not only you, but also your place in the cosmos. This is a very auspicious time to remind yourself of applying wisdom to decisions that require your input. An easy way to work with this is to meditate on a clear crystal lake where you can find Buddha along with other ascended masters, for this is their festival. Don’t worry though, the next full moon is our festival, the festival of humanity.

Coming up in the near future is a Mercury retrograde, so it is wise to also prepare for this. During a Mercury retrograde, you may find that things come up from the past to be re-addressed. This may occur in a very blunt way, though, so it is also wise to watch your speech. In short, as I’m sure you can tell, it’s a good time to focus on your personal work to tie up loose ends and prepare to get ahead.

Speaking of being proactive and getting ahead, there’s a lot in my world that is occurring. To begin with, my first book “Vocal Magick” is out and available, so things are moving ahead with that, especially since I’ll have a book signing at Pathways in St Louis MO on Saturday May 16th, followed by presentations at Pagan Picnic in St Louis and Babalon Rising in Midian IN. For those of you that want to know more about astrology but have limited time, I’ll be holding my annual astrology weekend intensive workshop on May 23rd and 24th, also at Pathways, in conjunction with others classes being held there.

I’ll still continue to have classes and be available for readings at Holistic Journey in IL, too, teaching my Mercury retrograde class there as well as at Pathways. However, in Holistic Journey I will also be debuting a new class entitled “Sacred Space,” during which we will discuss the principles and techniques of creating sacred space. This will be on May 28th. Mercury Retrograde will also be taught here, so there are several opportunities for attendance. My webinars have been successful, and I have one scheduled for Saturday, May 30th, and the topic of this one will be the “Astrology of the Body.” Join me as we discuss how astrology lines up with the body, and what you can do with that information.

Remember, during this month is traditionally when the gods and goddesses got married, making this a prime time to execute a divine marriage regarding your spiritual growth, merging the spiritual and the physical. By working with Buddha early in the month we can clear our minds to continue to make clear, informed decisions throughout the whole month so that this Mercury retrograde can be one of the most productive, potentially empowering you towards new cycles of growth.

Blessings,

Happy Full Moon Aries!

Greetings,

Wow, what an intense time! Today we have the full moon on the Aries/Libra axis, and I don’t know about you, but things are buzzing with energy and potential. Eclipses occur in pairs, and this is the second in the set, the follow up to the eclipse on spring equinox. While the theme of that eclipse was tying up loose ends and bringing things to closure, the theme of this one is new beginnings and potential. What is very profound to me is that this is occurring the day before the Christian holy day of Easter. Coincidence? I think not. Well, actually, I know better, so let me clarify for those of you that might not be aware.

Most of the Christian holy days are astrologically timed, and thus the link between astrology and Christianity is exposed. Christianity uses astrology quite frequently, even though this point may not overtly be discussed and some even go so far as to live in denial about this fact. The best example of this is Easter. There is a formula for figuring out when Easter occurs, so for those of you that would like to know without waiting to find out; you can figure it out for yourself. Easter occurs on the first Sunday after the first full moon after spring equinox. Thus you have the full moon today and Easter tomorrow. While the theme of Easter is resurrection, this, too, is the theme of today’s full moon.

Aries is all about new beginnings, and Libra is about justice and right and proper relationships, so what you have when you think about it are new beginnings in a fair and just way. You could say a “karmic” way, but that would be a bit of a misnomer because karma isn’t a bank account to fill up, but rather it is fluid and much more complex than that.

This final point leads me to the big news of the moment. Monday, the day after Easter, my first full book “Vocal Magick” will officially be released, published by Immanion Press! Wow! What an accomplishment! Yes, I will be writing more, but this is so effin’ cool! Thus watch for promotions, book signings, etc. In there I discuss the power and use of the voice and language as a magical tool to create your reality. Usually this is only discussed in passing or only in very specialized ways (such as mantras, vibration of god names from the western esoteric tradition, etc), but in this book I take a more living, general approach to application of certain principles.

The other big news is that my first webinar was a wonderful success! We had an excellent time discussing psychic self-defense, and there are more on the horizon. Watch my website for more information.

During this auspicious time, it would be wise to look around at your life and see where it’s time for new beginnings, but also what it would be wise to resurrect back to life in the inner life. It’s also wise to watch for situations to unfold that are very just and fair. The trick to working with this concept, though, is to also see when this may be working against us due to our own actions. This takes a particular skill because it requires the setting aside of the ego.

So, what will you resurrect? How will you begin anew for this new year?

Blessings,

Bill

Happy Full Moon Pisces

Greetings!

Today we have the full moon in Pisces, which is the last full moon of the current energetic year. While the Sun is moving through tropical Pisces, the moon is in Tropical Virgo, which makes this an excellent time to bring physical manifestation to ideas that you may have had swirling around in your head for awhile. This is an auspicious time to get to work, and to figure out how to produce your thoughts and visions. It can often times be a challenge to figure out how to do this, but with creative planning and thinking, this can be achieved. The physical plane can sometimes develop slowly, so patience and methodicalness, both associated with Virgo, are two techniques that can be used to accomplish this. While Pisces may be visionary and progressive, it can also sometimes be diffused and hard to understand. The energy of Pisces is that of the intuitive person: the dreamer, the visionary, and the psychic. This can be a cautionary tale to many, as sometimes it is easy to get lost in Piscean energy if one is not clear or practical with their ideas.

That’s the rub, isn’t it? All of us have many wonderful ideas swimming around in our heads, but to make them manifest is something else entirely. There are two big hurdles that should be overcome to make things happen, and those hurdles are hard work and adaptability. I believe it should be clear by now that to work with Piscean ideas, it would be wise to look to Virgo, the opposite sign of Pisces, for insight and clarity. This is true of all signs of the zodiac. Opposite signs can present tension, but they can also present insight to work with. Day to day activities should be considered as part of the whole and as part of the process of creation. No matter the sign and opposite sign axis, one can compliment the other, but it takes adaptability on our part to make this happen.

This is also an excellent time to bring resolution to projects that have been in the works for awhile to pave the way for new beginnings that are right around the corner on Spring Equinox, which is also known as International Astrology Day. The new moon coming up on Spring Equinox is a perfect time to start fresh, and the more things are wrapped up now, the more new beginnings can be had. The transformative vibe that is currently in the air can be tapped into to produce strong results, so it is wise to see how we should transform to accomplish our goals and bring closure to things that have been in process for awhile, if they are under our control.

So, what is it that you are finishing during this full moon? What projects do you have in the works that the energy of this full moon can help with? What is still undone, that can be of great use once it’s done?
