The Year the Dark Moon Goddess Rises Within Us

This will be a year of becoming the Dark Goddess for many of us. The "light and love" message won't resonate with many of you anymore (especially if you are my kind of bitches). It has it's purpose but the light feeling of it won't land fully for you at this time. There is a lot of love in the darkness if we only change our perception.

In the Dark phase of the moon we are conjuring magic, our psychic abilities, our intuition, our ability to create and destroy, our healing sexual energy, our ability to regenerate, our ability to wade through the dark fog of the Underworld and be restored...ready for the next part of our path.

New Moon in Sagittarius November 29th 2016

On the New Moon in Sagittarius...

This New Moon is the first New Moon we are experiencing after a pretty globally intense November. And thank goodness. Sagittarius' MO is all about freedom, about expansion, about liberation, about seeking out the truth and acquiring wisdom. It likes to explore all different kinds of belief systems, on a social level and on a spiritual level too.

If you know anything about Sag, you know it's often depicted as a the Centaur with a bow and arrow...the archer. There is a meshing of animal and human nature here. One must acquire knowledge, skill and understanding of the bow and arrow...how to aim..how to shoot...how to hold it...but then once you shoot that arrow...it's up to nature where it will land exactly...Sag shows up fully, and knows that all pursuits do require a certain amount of faith.

That's why so many associate Sag with taking leaps of faith in our lives. It's a time when we want to follow the souls whims. We want to live life. We want to learn through experience. That is the energy that is pulled forward within in us when Sag comes around. And it can cause major feelings of restlessness and impatience or it can feel just down right weird if our pre-disposition is not used to lots of changeable energy.

Sagittarius wants for us to get out there and see the world. Because it knows there is so much of it out there. It want's us to take up space in the world.

Sag is the big picture thinker. It sees the end vision, the broad vision. It's not too keen on the details. It was us to have massive faith in our visions.

Jupiter is the planetary ruler of Sag and is known as the planet that influences expansion, prosperity, abundance and luck which ever sign and house it is in. Jupiter is currently in Libra and will be here until about Oct 2017. We are all feeling the Libra energy come forward for review but especially so over the next 6 months...Jupiter likes to be in Libra (a Venus ruled sign)...Jupiter wants pleasure...it wants more harmony and collaboration here...it wants us to learn how to work well with others, yet honor our own truth too. It's a pretty creative placement too for all of us. So at this time of this New Moon Jupiter is chilling out in Libra, reminding us WHY Sag wants us to travel around the world...it wants us to get to know the world and the opinions within in...and then hopefully (when utilized in full expression) we can uncover our own truth.

At the time of this New Moon the Moon will square Neptune and the South Lunar Node both currently in Pisces. This square is where we want to look out for a temptation to engage in past patternings, past habits...past pain. It's the square where we may tend to skim over the details and forget key details of an experience. Therefore causing us to think it was worst or better than it actually was. The South Node tempts us to engage back with whats comfortable, even though we know it may not be the most helpful to move our lives forward. Neptune in Pisces in it's higher expression is highly artistic and imaginative...it can be healing in the way that it can help us develop a faith in our intuition due to how damn highly sensitive and empathic it is. But in it's lower expression...it pulls us towards addiction, delusion and unnecessary escapism. Escapism can be great if we don't get stuck in a perpetual day dream and forget to come back down to Earth, or learn how to mesh Earth and Cosmic energy.

There is literally a path presented before us right now with the square to the South Node and therefore the North Node. This axis is the destiny line. It's where we are currently working to let go of past bullshit in favor of what we currently need to learn to live out our souls purpose. The North Node is currently in Virgo...urging us to be pragmatic, efficient, to take care of ourselves and to basically stop fucking around and get out shit together. It also wants us to master some kind of skill (and this could def be work related) or some subject in our lives (depending what house the North Node is in for you in your chart).

Getting our shit together could be hard with this square. We are challenged for a reason. To build the kind of confidence that can take us far and wide, exactly what Sag wants. It wants us again...to take up space in the world. And this square is very sharply and distinctly presenting the challenges of both turning to the past and what the future possibilities hold.

If it feels like we are being testing..it's probably because we are.

Later on on the day of the New Moon, the moon will sextile Mars in Aquarius which is helpful to us in that Mars provides strength, courage, ambition and passion to go after our grand visions. Mars likes to cut away and go after things. So this sextile could be incredibly helpful if we send it in the direction of that North Node energy and go after all that we need to be learning. Aquarius is very forward thinking and innovative, so we may really really feel ready to be liberated from systems that keep us down and embrace our individual selves and in doing so that contributes to society in some way. There's probably going to be even more seeking of justice in the air with this.

Over all some of the best ways to dabble with this New Moon Sag energy:
1. Pay attention to what you feel compelled towards. What is tugging at your soul and spirit right now. What are the big visions you keep circling back towards.
2. Take little steps towards the big ones.  Sag is a big thinker and it likes to change. We need Sag visions. But you may want to pause and do some research into your pursuits (so that leap of faith doesn't mean a leap off a cliff that leads to disaster). Take a shorter term class series as opposed to committing straight way to grad school or college. Take a short term trip to the area you want to explore as opposed to 2 or 3 months.
3. Connect to your spiritual energy but do work to stay grounded. Ever notice yourself slipping away in a day dream and losing time? Awesome..this can be a relief...but one of the easy ways you can make sure you've got a foot on the ground is by picturing a grounding cord attached to you going down into the Earth....or you can simply starting naming tangible things you notice in your immediate environment.  
4. Tell the truth. Your Truth. Sag wants you to feel safe enough to be fully expressed. Notice where you betray yourself. Even if it's the tiniest little thing like saying whole milk is fine when you really want soy. Speak up. Even if your voice shakes.

Okay babes that's all for theNew Moon! I hope that your intentions are full of truth, freedom and expansion.

with magic,
Nikki

Happy Witch Wednesday!!!

I hope that you all had a beautiful and spooky Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead or anything else you celebrate at this time of year!

I wanted to write to you today because I definitely experienced some wicked intense energy the past few days that actually left me quite drained yet also anxious.

A lot of times everyone thinks that because I'm someone whom has studied self-development for many years and acquired many tools for handling and processing emotions that I am somehow exempt from experiencing them. This could not be farther from the truth actually.

I'm incredibly emotional with a hyper sensitive nervous system (at age 12 I literally was SO anxiety ridden I provoked the shingles virus in my body to activate and I still have scars from it).

So yes, I experience anxiety but my relationship to it has shifted over the years. I'm not exempt from the super uncomfortable feelings that are oh-so...human.

Sometimes the spiritual industry likes to gloss over and tell you to "think positively" and there's also this undertone that something is wrong and must be fixed or provided a solution if you don't feel "totally awesome" all the time or are experiencing some intensely shitty emotions.

This, in my humble as fuck opinion, is damn dangerous to preach.

The thing about being happy or any other "positive" energy, is that it too is a feeling, and feelings and emotions are meant to be fleeting. They are mean to ebb and flow and wax and wane the same exact way that the Moon does. Any emotion, ANY, is meant to move. It's temporary. It's transient.

That's why our moods change from day to day, even if nothing in out "outside" world has provoked that. I can literally have the same exact day as the day before but feel very differently.

This used to frustrate me "Why can't I feel like this all the time?" in regards to those more joyous feelings.

As time has gone on, as I've done some intense energy healing, and as I have began to work with the cycles of the Moon very intimately...I've begun to have a greater sense of compassion for these sensations and myself.

If there was ONE thing I could magically get everyone to make peace with it would be the seemingly inconsistent levels of emotions and feelings. It's something I still am working on myself, it sucks when you want to get shit done but actually feel like a whole bunch of "nopes"...there is not sugar coating the annoyance of that. But again, the compassion I have towards this process has lifted the blackness that is often hanging tight with that kind of experience.

Last week was very very very intense and active for me. I did a bunch of client work. A bunch of promotion. Interviews. Paperwork. Administrative work. Lovely bullshit trying to get health insurance for next year. Classwork. AND I was hosting a Halloween party in my home, something I've never done before. And going to Halloween parties, also not something my typical introverted home body self does.

Here's what happened after that: Sunday I spent in bed, Monday I returned some emails and cleaned, Tuesday I did mostly nothing work wise and then redecorated my office cause even though "work" stuff wasn't coming to me...SOMETHING wanted to move and be created.

And now today, I feel resorted of energy.. I feel open to receive and more capable to dive into work related happenings.

When you are highly sensitive and learning to work with your sensitivity, it's essential that you first work to give yourself FULL permission to respect your fucking energy. I had opportunities to get back to work and to continue the socialized energy of this time, but I had to decline and say "no" otherwise I would have set myself up to continue on the recovery. 

In the past, I would feel bad about needed so much time to myself and to simple..."be" but as I get more used to my own nature and understand my energy much more intimately the more I KNOW without a doubt what I most need. I work HARD and it may not be in the manner of which people are used to hearing about, witnessing or taking part of ....it's simply different.

At times it's difficult to resolve with "normal" systems but I've never felt more like "me" than I do today and that's simply NOT something I'm willing to get in the way of, especially right now.

So how did I handle my anxiety and move with this energy?

One, I'm hyper aware that the cosmic energy was fucking crazy pants...It was a New Moon in Scorpio (my Sun sign, this New Moon was transiting the end of my 1st house of self over some natal Planets such as intense Pluto), it was Halloween and Samhain...meaning a portal for otherworldly energy was walking with...at times I felt I was myself the walking dead so I knew that as an intuitive and highly sensitive..I would feel this...and then we also had the Day of the Dead as well...being in the U.S this energy is literally coming from all angles considering Halloween/Samhain are quite pagan and European and the Day of the Dead energy stems from the south of us. And we still have this MASSIVE energy awakened through Native American tribes standing at Standing Rock calling upon us to band together to save Earth.

Two, I reflected on my week. And I did not shortchange myself for how much I was doing. I reflected a lot. I celebrated my effort. I honored that my energy was used for these efforts.

Three, I took the action I intuitively knew I could manage and not feel set back in anyway. I returned the emails. I social mediaed a whole bunch and connected with my tribe. I set my New Moon intentions. I moved around my physical surroundings cause something in me was evolving and I desired to "see" it in some form. I rested. And rested. But then went for walks. I did energy work. I imagined the outcomes I desired in regards to a certain very material realm thing I've been dealing with but also did what I could to make sure I could be set up for success. I was vulnerable and honest with my feelings.

These are all important things. No matter what "THEY" tell you. Especially if you are reading this shit right now, you're probably sensitive. You are probably "awakening". You're probably into self-development. You're probably a witch. And the world needs that energy and awareness, literally more than ever. Really, this is what we have been prepping for.

So take damn good care of yourself and stop fucking around. Do the fucking work. Embody your cosmic magic.

Full Super Moon in Aries October 16th, 2016 - Awaken

This Full Moon is reminding us all of our own tipping points. The places we are totally sick of the way things are. Totally sick of going along with it all. Totally sick of the status quo. Of the way things are in our lives. We are sick of our own habits. We are sick of not doing the damn thing we've wanted to do for probably what feels like an eon. We are angry at ourselves. We want to break free. To rebel.
