Last night was the full moon in Gemini, and here in the U.S. it was also Thanksgiving, a holiday about gathering with family and loved ones to give thanks for the good in our lives—and also a holiday based on a propaganda narrative that erases the atrocities of colonialism. This day can be a fraught one, filled with potentially explosive political disagreements and tense family conversations, with speaking your mind or with holding your tongue. It’s a time when narratives col
On this new moon in Gemini, we burn off the mental fog. We clear the air by verbalizing our needs. We honor our contradictions. We take a look in the mirror, see past the distortions, and love what we find reflected back at us. Or, if we have a hard time loving what we see, we at least try. Gemini moons can usually be counted on for a lighter vibe, but Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury has just entered the emotional water sign of Cancer on Tuesday, giving this air moon a humidit
This full moon, we perform alchemy on ourselves. We blend our dichotomous parts to achieve higher truths, synthesize our polarities to enact deep healing, and free ourselves from limiting mindsets that make us doubt our expansive possibilities.

We have the new moon in Aries, which, with Aries as the first sign of the zodiac and new moons being the start of a new lunar cycle, marks the beginning of the astrological new year for those who track by the moon. Tomorrow, Mercury also stations direct in Aries after being retrograde since March 22nd. Mercury going direct is nothing remarkable in and of itself (it happens 3-4 times a year, after all), but Mercury stationing direct in Aries so cl
Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac and one of the most deeply rooted in intuition. Pisces is the element water and the tarot card The Moon. It’s the unconscious, the emotional depths, the psychic channel to source, the imaginative and visionary world of dreams.
It’s also fucking intense. This Pisces season, many of us have felt like we’ve been plunged straight into a choppy ocean, like we’re treading water and just barely keeping our head above the surface. Emotional trig
Awaken Your Authentic Self. The new moon in Aquarius today is a heavy one, dense with change, upheaval, resetting. It’s demanding we rise to its call, break out of our former selves, and crack ourselves wide to the uncomfortable and unknown and absolutely thrilling transformation that’s been calling to us throughout this tumultuous eclipse season. Can you feel it? It’s electric, ecstatic, erratic. It’s probably painful. Don’t even try to dig your heels in. This new moon parti
