Today is Halloween or Day of the Dead. It’s also a New Moon in Scorpio, an excellent moment to heal, purify, and transmute deep wounds or experiences that have marked your life. Here’s a ritual I like to call The Witch’s Bath.
This bath is a ritual to cleanse negative energy from the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies. At the end, the body is bathed with protection and abundance. For us witches and all kinds of healers, this is a powerful bath because we work with other people’s negative energy to transform it into a positive one. At the end of a day of energy work with other people, a long day of stress, tiredness or challenging situations, this bath is ideal to purify and cleanse away any unharmonious energy of yourself or others that you may have absorbed. Then, you’re ready to impregnate new and energizing vibes and, at the same time, be protected by the divine power. Continue reading

Learn the lesson and keep going without forgetting what you learned. You’re at the threshold of a new life. You finally let go of attachments and unhealthy situations, things, or people.

We are at the month of Libra until October 22, when the Sun enters Scorpio. Create a balance in your life, harmony within yourself. You must make amends with those things you don’t accept about yourself, those things you criticize and don’t forgive about yourself. This is the month to create new relationships and strengthen the ones you have. Go on a romantic date with your partner, go out with your best friends, go to social events. Relationships are a mirror of the relationship you have with yourself. The exchange of ideas, expressing yourself and listening are a priority. This is the month for arts and beauty: visit museums and galleries, take an art class of the art form of your choice, redecorate your home, change your look with a new style. The idea is to surround yourself with those things that make you feel good and happy. After so many difficulties, the time of peace and harmony is finally here, but you can’t sleep in the laurels. You must keep the achieved discipline. There is no bigger satisfaction than leading yourself.
Once relationships are strengthened, when the Sun enters Scorpio on October 22, you’ll know with whom you can partner, with whom you can be vulnerable and intimate, with whom you can share your power both in love and in business. This is relevant in partnerships, sex, and finances. This is the moment to face your fears and you inner demons, to heal your deepest wounds and be reborn. At the end, you recover the joy of living.

July is the month to administrate well all the projects that were planned or started this year. Now they get form by refining details and how things are done based on experience. These experiences dictate the direction of those plans because now you know better which things work and which don’t. Whatever seemed to be erratic or out of control takes shape. Things need to be ordered, follow the rules and routines. Focusing on the final goal is crucial to be able to focus on today’s details.
New businesses move easier. It’s important to keep a clear vision and goals as much as deadlines to achieve those goals. Now you feel better prepared to face the twists and turns of the daily battles because your mind is clear.
This is also a month where relationships strengthen or become oficial, in business and in love. Maybe you found the perfect person to be your business partner or your spouse. Whichever is the case, you must be absolutely clear about what it is that you want and what you’re looking for so you can take the next step with conviction. This month you’re looking for a connection because you’ve been alone or feeling lonely for a while. To achieve this, you must not be afraid to show your sweet and noble side. You have noticed that your strong side establishes a protective barrier that scares everyone away, specially those you’d like to keep close and have shown to be worthy of it. Obviously, this is not something you do with everybody, but you must try it with those whom you’d like to attract. Give yourself the chance. You’ll be surprised. Continue reading
The last time the New Moon was in Gemini was on May 17, 2015. During that tie, you began to leave behind those things that gave you a false sense of mental security. Now you realize that after so much research, studying, and getting knowledge from the outside world, what really matters is the knowledge that comes from within. You’ll learn that “truth” is relative and individual and now you not only formulate your own truth, but you experience it. There is a lesson of authenticity, to be true to your truth. For that to happen, a time of solitude for reflection is important so you don’t contaminate your thought with someone else’s, to not confuse your inner voice with someone else’s. In the end, you make your own decisions and suffer or enjoy the consequences. Sometimes, these decisions are difficult because, in order to build your own truth, you must discard the one that is not working for you anymore. Remember that the last New Moon in Taurus, which happened two weeks ago, made you reevaluate your values, those things that are important and non-negotiable for you. And in order to create tangible results with new values means that your old belief system prevents you from growing, which results in modifying or changing it completely to adjust to your new reality. Today’s Full Moon in Sagittarius, which its effects last until the next Full Moon in Cancer on July 4, support you on developing your self-confidence along with other planetary aspects, such as Saturn Retrograde in Sagittarius — to define your limits and your truth — and Mars Retrograde in Sagittarius, and later in Scorpio until May 27 — to avoid reacting because of fear of seeing your truth destroyed. The second Full Moon in Sagittarius will be on June 19, so these same lessons will be worked on for a longer period of time. Take advantage of this opportunity because it is very important.
Now you practice your new rules, your new philosophy of life, the one that lets you expand and grow. For that to happen, you need to be centered in your convictions, understand your life mission and purpose, and know your place in the world. That requires a sense of freedom, which will make you feel attracted to traveling, other cultures, other philosophies, study deeply a subject of interest related to the “truth” — whether it’s sciences, philosophy, politics, or religion — or go deeper in your intuition and spirituality. This new system is not imposed by others — your family, your culture, your community, your education or social conditioning — but comes from all the personal knowledge obtained through experience. The more you learn, the better informed are your decisions to adjust to your present needs and reality.
Remember that not even this is forever, that it needs to bee adjusted while you and your life change. It’s also important to remember and highlight the respect others’ path towards their own truth. The exchange of ideas is always welcome with the purpose of learning, never to impose your ideas on others, or for the righteousness of feeding the ego because “i know and you don’t”. This corrupts the other’s free will, creates separation, and can even induce violence. There is no such thing as absolute truth. This new sense of security will give you the optimism, self-confidence, and motivation to work on those postponed plans and projects because now your convictions are planted on firm ground.
Look for your zodiac sign to see which aspect of your life needs to expand, find its truth, and a sense of spontaneity and adventure until July 4:
The New Moon always invites to let go of those things that limit you. It also invites to plant the seed of a new cycle. Like all seeds, this one has the potential of a result. Maybe a tree comes out of it, a plant, many fruits, but maybe nothing happens. To achieve what you want, you’ll have to work hard for it and provide the seed with what it needs to germinate. This lunation provides an opportunity of introspection to be sure of what you want and what you need. What do you need to love yourself more, to be self-sufficient, to feel stable and safe? This is a time to do those things that give you a sense of safety and stability, to realize how valuable you are and where your personal treasures reside. It is important to identify how are you of value for others, for a business, or a project. What do you bring to the table, what can you offer, how can you maintain it or improve it? What is important for you? Which and where are your boundaries? What are you willing to negotiate and what not? This are the questions you need to make to be sure of the chosen path, the relationships you should nurture, and the projects you’ll focus on.
Mercury Retrograde in Taurus and the Sun in Taurus support this introspection and prevent certain matters to be rushed so they are properly revised until the answers and decisions made provide a sense of certainty. Taurus likes to move slowly, but firmly. What’s important is to maintain what has been already achieved, to not lose what has been conquered. Remember always what you have, not what you lack. How? Being grateful. Gratitude makes you conscious of what you have. It’s a quality of inner stability.
Look for your sign to know which aspect of your life needs to be nurtured, maintained, and valued until May 20: Continue reading
