New Moon in Virgo on August 27th

This New Moon period is beginning Saturday, August 27th at 1:17 am AZ time (PDT) A New Moon also represents the end of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another. Astrologically, this means that both the Sun and Moon are in the same sign, and on August 27th, they are both in Leo.

The new moon is a time of new beginnings, and this New Moon presents an excellent opportunity for us to formulate some goals regarding “all things Virgo” which include organization, cleanliness, health, work, and new habits.

This new moon in Virgo is a good time to focus on starting over, and/or getting back on track. Because Virgo is so practical, it really is a time to get back to business. This may affect our workplace, our projects, and it may even bring new professional opportunities. Virgo energy likes a clean environment, so it’s a great time to clean house (both physically and in spirit). Detoxes are easier at this time – both physical and mental!

Also, be aware that our Autumn Equinox ceremony is on September 17th, 2002 at 5:00 pm on Facebook Live; three weeks from this New Moon.

Exciting news! I am in the process of planning to start classes again both in person and online. I am exploring platforms, and will, for sure, post here when that is all arranged. My hope is to start right after Samhain, and if everything goes well, they will be held live and on Zoom on Wednesday nights from 5:30-7:00 pm, and my plan is to have a platform to make them available to folks who want to work through our Study Program, at any time, or if you can’t make the class and want to watch them later. All of that is in the works….At some point, I may also present ceremony in person as well as on the same platform. Stay tuned!

Autumn Equinox – a Celebration of the Harvest

Autumn Equinox is a time of balance, a time when day and night are equal in length, and a time of turning inward as we contemplate the coming winter. It is also a time to express gratitude for all of the abundance and blessings that have come our way in the past year.

Druids of the Light will be meeting on Facebook Live on Saturday, September 17th at 5:00 pm to celebrate this wonderful time of harvest, and to honor Nuada and Airmed, the god and goddess of healing and prosperity.

The ceremony is approximately 30 minutes long. Suggested love offering of $10, but not required.

Full Sturgeon Moon on August 11th

We are beginning this Full Moon period on Thursday evening on August 11th and which is exact at 6:36 pm AZ (PST) time, and it is also known as the Sturgeon Moon due to the abundance of fish at this time of year.

We have a full moon when the sun and moon are considered in opposition. Astrologically, this means that both the Sun and Moon are in opposing signs, and at the time of this full moon, the sun is in Leo, and the moon will be entering Aquarius around 11:45 am on August 10th, and will be exactly opposed the Sun on August 11th at 6:36 pm. The moon in Aquarius will cause your relationship with your emotions to be more complicated because Moon in Aquarius needs emotional freedom. However, it is also easier to release yourself from fear, anger, and jealousy. This Full Moon axis deals with balancing the efforts we invest in ourselves (Leo) and what we do for the collective (Aquarius), and we may feel the inner pull between these two areas of our lives.

The Sturgeon moon is also a time to practice gratitude for all you have and the nature around you. Take a moment to really appreciate everything. Watch the video to find out more about this full moon period.
