New Moon in Virgo, Monday, September 6 at 7:52 PM CDT

When the moon is in Virgo, it is a very good time to take a look at the overall picture of your life.

While Virgo is all about creating organization, maintaining focus, and applying yourself, to me the most important thing is noticing how indecision can be affecting your life.

Many times, indecision shows up as procrastination, also perfectionism. These traits may not be universal. They may not show up in every area of your life. But when they do, a good question to ask yourself is “what is getting in my way”, or “what is stopping me from going forward”.

Using the words “what is”, rather than the word “why” is more likely to give you useful information. This way you can get at the real reason for the behavior. Once you understand the real reason, you are looking at the cause rather than the symptom. Then you can address the real problem rather than the surface behavior it causes.


New moon in Gemini, Thursday, June 10 at 5:53am CDT

The new moon this month is in Gemini and it is also a super moon because we are expecting a solar eclipse. As you may know, eclipses signify a beginning.

But there is one thing to watch out for.

Mercury is retrograde until June 21.

When Mercury is retrograde, it’s an excellent time to finish up projects. But it is not a good time to initiate anything new. When Mercury is in retrograde it seems that all sorts of communication is affected. So, it is best not to begin anything until June 22.

When you combine the power of a solar eclipse with the new moon, you are adding even more power to your wishes this month.

Since Gemini rules communication, this is a good time to make wishes to improve communication on all levels, including social interactions as well as business.

Remember to include communication with yourself. This is a time to realize that all feelings that you have are worth looking at. The feelings that you have are not the problem. Where things can get sticky is what you do to handle those feelings.

When you are truly communicating with yourself in an honest way, and giving yourself permission to have what ever feelings you are having (without criticism!), it becomes easier to look at useful ways of handling those feelings.

So, remember to use all 10 of your wishes this month. The most powerful time is within the first 8 hours of the new moon.


New moon in Taurus, Tuesday, May 11 at 1:59 PM CDT

This is a great time for making long range goals and plans. Now is the time to take the actions that can start to turn your dreams into reality.

With this energy, you may find new courage to take the risks you may have been avoiding. You may experience new bursts of inspiration to put your plans into action. The next two weeks will be the most powerful energy to support your plans.

Utilize the energy of this Taurus New Moon to take a good hard look at you financial situation. Look at where you are and where you want to be. Make an implement a plan.

Taurus is also about sensuality and contentment. Find time to relax, smell the roses and indulge your senses. Enjoy the beauty around you, including aromas and tastes.

What would make your life better?

If you feel like you are already doing too much, it may be time to chill a bit. Move slowly and surely towards your goals. Perseverance is the name of the game this month. Be dependable, too.


New moon in Aries, Sunday, April 11, 2021 at 9:31PM CDT

This Aries new moon brings us an unusual opportunity for personal growth and change in some very interesting patterns.

The influences from this energy can represent obstacles, shyness, misfortune, and depression. But they can also represent courage, sexiness, good fortune, enthusiasm, and positive energy.

So, this new moon gives you the opportunity to grow your comfort zone. This is your chance to overcome shyness and take initiative. This is an excellent time to break through long standing barriers. You can also use this energy to overcome a fear of failure or a fear of success.

This is a great time to ask someone out on a date or start a new project or business because good fortune tends to favor the brave this month.

So go for what you really want. Make some bold and courageous wishes this new moon.


New moon in Pisces, Saturday, March 13, 2021 at 4:21AM CST

When the moon is in Pisces, one of the things that it affects is states of confusion. But Pisces also rules emotional states including internal happiness, ecstasy, and universal love.

What an amazing combination!

With all the uncertainties surrounding the pandemic and the political scene, the word confusion seems to really fit. Here are some sample wishes that are really appropriate to me for what I personally feel, and what I see going on around me.

“I want to easily find myself dealing with states of emotional confusion in a constructive way that leads to growth”

“I want the tendency to escape through sleeping too much totally lifted from me”. (This is a clue to what I’ve been doing!).

But Pisces also rules psychic energy and sensitivity. So, in the coming weeks, you may find yourself more sensitive, and also more aware of subtle energies around you. You may already have certain practices that you follow to clear your energy. If not, now would be a good time to start.

This is relatively easy to do. One thing that you can do is simply notice your breath. Just feel the sensations as you inhale and exhale. Feel your chest and abdomen rising and falling, expanding and contracting. This practice brings you back into your body, into the present, into the moment. It pauses the narrative going on in your mind.

You can also use visualizations. Choose the color that represents universal love to you. Imagine this color filling your aura. You might also include in your visualization a scent that feels fresh and clean. Let the color flow into the ground to be recycled by Mother Earth, and inhale the fresh clean sent.

Those were just a few examples. But combinations are endless. Develop a routine that feels good to you and try to do it several times a day. Start your practice slowly and then build on the practice. This will help you stay centered in your own energy. It will also lessen the impact of any energies that are around you.


New moon in Aquarius, Thursday, February 11, 2021 at 1:06PM CST

Aquarius rules the future. This includes long-range goals new trends, unconventional approaches, and high technology (do all the recent stories about GameStop come to mind?). But it also rules humanitarianism. This is a good time to renew our identification with humankind, and interest in others. It’s interesting to notice how all the circumstances around the pandemic are pushing us in that direction.

So, this is a good time to make wishes about safely and easily becoming part of a community again. It’s also a good time to include, as part of you wishes, outcomes that are good for all involved.

Since this is also the beginning of the new year, there is the usual goal setting, and all the ways that we want to be different in the future. But this is also Mercury retrograde until February 20. So, we might want to hold off actually starting new projects until the 21st.

Following the path of the moon, as it travels across the night sky, is a way to help us keep in touch with the rhythms of nature. And wishing on the new moon is a fun and useful way to keep in touch with nature and the energies of our planet. But one thing we have to remember is that wishing on the moon is based on tradition.

Our ancestors taught us about planting at the new moon because of cycles in nature that they observed. They also saw the effect of the moon on the ocean’s tides.

However, when it comes to wishing on the new moon, that is based on belief. So, do our new wishes come true because of the moon? Or do our wishes come true because we believe in the power of the moon?

At this point with the knowledge we have we can’t really make that distinction. But what we do know for certain, there is a history of people having their new moon wishes granted.

We would like to hear from you. If you would like to share your results with us, will be setting up an email address where you can let us know your results. We will also be sharing some tips that you can use to improve your results. We will be looking forward to hearing from you.


New moon in Capricorn Tuesday, January 12, 2021 at 11:02PM.

Just like every other sign, Capricorn rules multiple areas including handling responsibility, reaching goals, success and recognition. It also rules management skills, authority figures (being one, and coping with one) and releasing controlling tendencies.

When I look at that list, my tendency is to make a blanket wish calling for competency in each one of those areas!

But that really defeats the purpose of wishing on the new moon.

When we actually spend some time thinking about different areas of our lives, and looking at them as they are, versus how we would like them to be, we create pictures in our mind’s eye.

This is the first step in creation.

It is the beginning of moving an idea from the world of energy into the physical world. Everything that man has created began first as an idea. Putting our ideas on paper, and in writing is the very next step of making that idea take physical shape in the world.

Perhaps that’s why the ancients gave us 10 wishes!

So be sure to use all of your wishes.

Where would you like to make changes? What would you like to be different? And because Capricorn rules goals, a sample wish might be “I see myself easily finding the help that I need to achieve my goals”.

Be sure to have fun with this process.


New moon in Sagittarius Monday, December 14, 2020.

This month’s new moon is a total solar eclipse. Because this is a solar eclipse, the moon darkens the sun. However, not all of the sun will be darkened because the diameter of the moon is smaller than the diameter of the sun in this particular type of eclipse, leaving a ring of light around the eclipsed sun. Since the December 2020 solar eclipse is also in good aspect to Mars, there will be additional energy and initiative to set new goals.

Sagittarius rules the desire for truth. It also rules the natural world including connections to nature, intuition, and peace of mind.

Some sample wishes might include:

  • “I want my intuition to become stronger and more accurate”.
  • “I want to notice myself enjoying and appreciating the natural world around me”.
  • “I want to find myself consistently experiencing peace of mind”.

This last wish might really be a bit of a test considering that we are in the midst of political turmoil and world wide pandemic.

This new moon is Saturday, November 14 at 11:07 PM CST

This month the new moon is in Scorpio.

Each new moon represents the end of one energetic cycle and the beginning of a new one. This new moon energy is about immorality and misfortune, but it is also about morality and success. The choice should be easy.

This new moon brings a much needed burst of energy and intuition with a potential for success and good fortune.

This is an excellent time to make a fresh start, start a new project or turn over a new leaf. Be inventive. Take a look at old habits, behaviors, and beliefs as you seek to make progress.

Now is the time to go after your goals. You may find it easier to deal with any hardship or obstacles in your life.

Goodwill, generosity, and lucky breaks make this is an excellent new moon to set new goals and start new projects. Opportunities for material and spiritual growth can also come through business, finance, travel, education, and the law. Increasing wealth, prosperity, and happiness are likely.

You may feel focused and driven to succeed with single-minded determination and intense motivation.

Utilize this increased personal power. Find a deeper understanding of your inner motivations. This is a good time to transform and regenerate. You can eliminate clutter and dead wood from your life. Leave broken relationships and bad habits behind you and gain a renewed sense of purpose and perspective on life.


This new moon is Friday, October 16 at 2:32 PM CDT

This month the new moon is in Libra. And once again I am amazed at how many areas of our lives are affected by the moon and the moon sign.

This month is beneficial to make wishes about negotiation skills, harmony, teamwork, diplomacy, refinement, partnerships, and one of the most important partnerships of all, marriage.

We’ve all heard the expression “happy wife, happy life”. And whether you are in a partnership, or marriage, traditional or nontraditional, whether you are the husband or the wife, you know that this is true!

This would be the month to make wishes around attracting a partnership, if that’s what you want. It would also be a time to make wishes regarding a deeper understanding and appreciation of the person you are with.

This new moon is Tuesday, August 18 at 9:42 PM CDT

This month’s new moon is in Leo. And Leo rules love and romance, creativity, generosity, celebration, dignity, determination, and tempering arrogance.

That is quite a combination and actually as I read through this list, I can see where we might want to make wishes to bring each one of these qualities into our lives and into the world.

Now more than ever, it feels as though we are living in different worlds together. There are those of us who are living through very real tragedies. And then there are those of us who are living through minor (although very annoying and sometimes very depressing) changes in our everyday lives.

Unfortunately, we cannot make wishes for other people, we can only make wishes for ourselves.

While we cannot change the world as it is, we can make changes in our personal world.

This month would be a good time to use the support that Leo brings to make wishes about finding love, and demonstrating the quality of love in our own, personal world.

With dignity and determination, we can stay strong as we confront the challenges of life as it is today.

This new moon is Monday, July 20 at 12:33 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Sunday, July 20 – 12:33 PM Central Time in the sign of Cancer.

Each of the 12 signs of the zodiac rules certain area of the body. and restoring health to that particular area. Cancer rules breasts, chest cavity, pancreas, stomach, stomach gas, ulcers, and tumors.

With the rise in coronavirus cases across the country several of those items listed above caught my eye. So, some of your wishes might include good health in general, and specifically in those areas of the body that cancer rules.

Cancer also rules self-protection, including feelings of insecurity, overly cautious behaviors and the lack of definite goals, just to mention a few. So perhaps that’s why the universe is giving us a second go round.

Cancer also rules being supportive and accepting support, taking care of others, and being taken care of by another. I find that, while people don’t always know the best way to be supportive, the desire to help is always there.

Offering support is one thing, accepting support or help is an altogether different matter. If you are in the position of having to accept help or support, a sample wish might be “I wish to graciously accept the support that I need without guilt or self-criticism”.

This New Moon Fri. May 22 at 12:39 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Friday, May 22 – 12:39 PM Central Time in the sign of Gemini.

As I was reading up on my astrology about this month’s new moon, I couldn’t help but notice how this month’s new moon has an additional element. This time it is the planet Saturn. Saturn provides patience and perseverance. And that is exactly what we need for the rebuilding that lies ahead of us. So perhaps May’s new moon is providing assistance for the beginning of a turning point in the pandemic.

However, on June 5, there will be a full moon plus a lunar eclipse. This particular lunar eclipse brings in an angry and impulsive energy. So, if you are somewhat sensitive to full moon energy, just be aware that these particular emotions are transitory.

You might want to wait for this energy to dissipate somewhat before you make any personal changes. If you can, avoid being defensive if someone says something you don’t want to hear.

On the other hand, this is an opportunity to be aware of your relationships. This is a time to notice what relationships drain your energy, and what relationships support you as you are moving forward.

This is a time to make any wishes regarding new beginnings, appreciating and strengthening the relationships that we have, and beginning new ones.

This new moon is Wednesday, April 22 at 9:27 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Wed., April 22 – 9:27 PM Central Time in the sign of Taurus.

I think we can all agree that these are unusual times. And the new Moon in Taurus rules many of the qualities that we need to deal with today’s challenges.

Taurus rules perseverance, patience, and self-worth. On the other hand, Taurus also rules enjoyment of life on earth including appreciation and gratitude. This includes simple physical pleasures and rapport with nature.

We definitely need perseverance to continue with the guidelines we are following to slow down the spread of Covid-19. And when those guidelines are lifted, we will enjoy simple pleasures again, including enjoying our physical ability to reconnect with the natural world.

Taurus also rules self-worth and resistance to change. Powerful wishes to improve self-worth might be “I want to begin to experience feelings of self-worth in every area of my life”. Another extremely important wish is “I want the tendency to undervalue myself easily and completely lifted from me.”

Resistance to change is something that we are all looking at, no matter how open we think we are. We really don’t have any idea of what life will look like following the pandemic.

At this time a useful wish might be, “I wish to maintain a neutral attitude as I think about how life could change.”

This new moon is Tuesday, March 24 at 4:29 AM CDT

The new moon occurs on Tue., Mar. 24 – 4:29 AM Central Time in the sign of Aries.

This new moon brings with it some very powerful energies that seem to be coming at us from all directions, and they are not all very pleasant at this time. They are both wounding and healing.

A number of astrological bodies are having intense influence over our lives at this time including Chiron, Lilith, Deneb Kaitos, the lunar nodes, and others.

It is both bad news and good news. It is a time of both sickness and healing, fear and courage. It is a time of prejudice, grief and alienation, but also the time for cooperation, understanding, and nurturing compassion.

Old buried wounds from childhood or even past lives maybe coming to the surface. And all of this can be overwhelming.

However, the new moon is a time for new starts, new understandings, new ideas and new relationships.

How can we bring our hearts and minds together?  How can we find our common humanity in the world of differences? How can we begin to bridge the divides between us? How can we let go of the hurts and pains of the past and embrace life together as one?

These are the kinds of wishes we all need at this time.

It happens inside of us first. What we do with in ourselves is the most powerful contribution we can make to effect the collective consciousness around us. And then, whatever actions we undertake on the outside will be super empowered. This combination of energies, internal and external, creates effects beyond anything we can ever see or measure in this lifetime.

It happens inside of us first!

This new moon is Sunday, February 23 at 9:33 AM CST

The new moon occurs on Sun., Feb. 23 – 9:33 AM Central Time in the sign of Pisces. Pisces is spiritual, abstract, creative and expansive. It is full of motivation, fun and energy. But it is also about chaos, and not so good at staying within limits.

Plus, this new moon occurs during Mercury retrograde. So be extra aware of the potential chaos.

Still, this is a good time to have fun, dance, be lighthearted, maybe even flirt a little. Just don’t over do it.

Its also a good time to go back and review plans, but avoid signing any important deals until after March 10th.

This is an excellent time to find and travel your spiritual path. Discover whatever brings you closer to your spiritual truth, because, amidst the apparent chaos, this new moon in Pisces wants you to focus on your spiritual truth.

Make your wishes around getting unstuck from old patterns and old thoughts and living your spiritual truth. Make your wishes around embracing life and being connected with your inner being. Make wishes around seeing through the apparent chaos to find the calm stead flow of spiritual energy that is you.


The new moon occurs on Fri., Jan. 24- 3:44 PM Central Time in the sign of Aquarius.

As usual, Aquarius rules so many different aspects of our lives. And as usual, I am only picking out a few! Aquarius rules humanitarianism, as well as taking care of our own needs.

It also rules new trends, long-range goals, and following your heart’s desire. And, in the midst of these lofty subjects, Aquarius rules high technology!

Aquarius also rules friends, groups, and networking, as well as open and friendly approaches.

A sample wish for friendship might be “I want to attract lots of happy healthy new friendships”.

A sample wish for humanitarianism could include seeing the bigger picture or “I wish to find myself easily supporting situations that benefit others as well as myself”.

Another important wish is “I wish to find myself easily recognizing and fulfilling my own needs in healthy ways”.

And one wish that will absolutely be on my wish list in big bold letters is as follows. “I  WISH TO FIND MYSELF EASILY AND SUCCESSFULLY ADAPTING TO ALL THE NEW TECHNOLOGY THAT’S AVAILABLE TO USE”! (My husband will thank me for this one.)


This new moon is Wednesday, December 25 at 11:15 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Wed., Dec. 25- 11:15 PM Central Time in the sign of Capricorn.

December is also solar eclipse which completely changes the energy of the new moon. As you know, the new moon is a great time for planting seeds (by making our wishes) to bring fresh energy into our lives. But because of the solar eclipse on December 25, we need to work with this new moon in a little different way.

Some astrologers think that eclipses are about fate. So because the solar eclipse coincides with the new moon, the advice is simply to let yourself be open to whatever the new moon is bringing for you. Because Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and the solar eclipse are all happening at the same time as this month’s new moon, not to mention the end of the decade, the energy of the season and the new moon is definitely magnified.

There is also a heavy Capricorn influence because the new moon takes place in Capricorn. This is also the second Capricorn new moon of the year. The solar eclipse is also in the earth sign of Capricorn. This means that the influence of Capricorn will be felt throughout the coming 12 months.

Remember to be open to whatever the energies the new moon and solar eclipse combination is bringing for you.

Capricorn is an ambitious energy with grand ideals and full of potential. However, it is important to watch out for feelings of self importance.

This new moon is Tuesday, November 26 at 9:07 AM CDT

The new moon occurs on Tues., Nov. 26- 9:07 AM Central Time in the sign of Sagittarius.

It’s no surprise that this month’s wish themes include observing religious practices, spirituality, prayer and meditation.

Other themes for this month include holding positive expectations, grand gestures, doing things spontaneously, and maintaining an expectation that luck and opportunity will find you.

What did surprise me is that this month’s themes also include fairness, judgment, maintaining morality and integrity, delving into complex matters, solving problems.

For those of us who are following the nation’s politics, these particular qualities have a special significance. And no matter where we stand on the political spectrum, these are the qualities that we want to maintain for ourselves so that we can all come together in fairness and find a solution that works for everyone.

Just a brief word about the next new moon. It occurs on December 26, the day after Christmas. There is also a solar eclipse on this day as well. This new moon is particularly powerful because we will be entering a new decade.

This new moon is Sunday, October 27 at 10:40 PM CDT

The new moon occurs on Sun., Oct. 27- 10:40 PM Central Time in the sign of Scorpio.

This month is Scorpio, but not just regular Scorpio, its intense Scorpio. And it’s the dark side of Scorpio leading up to the new moon release. Once the new moon emerges the energy will be on your side to support your wishes in a big way.

Don’t let this energy get the best of you. Avoid over reacting, avoid tit for tat, and angry outbursts. You might even notice inner conflict within yourself. Just notice all this. Acknowledge it when it comes up and watch it go by. Remind yourself that it is all just stories in your head and it will all come to pass much faster and easier when you allow yourself to stay out of it.

This month is a good time to make wishes around connecting with others in deeper ways, character development, avoiding risks, and to take better care of yourself by not pushing the limits.
