Intuitive astrologer Kristina Wingeier is back for another episode of the MOONSHINE series on the #FlowerloungePodcast. We dive deep into what to expect this lunar cycle, important dates to throw on your calendar + flower elixirs recommended for getting a jump on *stabilizing* for it all!
Venus is in Gemini, making her first square to Neptune in Pisces - there will be three of these.
Venus is love, money, magnetism. Venus will do a review cycle - retrograde. We experience metamorphosis in Venus in Gemini.
The squares are points of tension and friction that invite a new perspective.
Neptne dissolves boundaries, and feeling confusion & fogginess
Venus: What is love? What do I love? What are my values?
This can be confusing; we have idealistic expectations and we’re confronted with the illusion of expectation.
May 3 (both direct) May 20 (Venus rx) July 27 (Venus direct/Neptune rx).
Mercury gets the download from the sun; it’s happening in Taurus. Good day for communication, journaling, insights, listening to your body.
Lunar nodes change: for the next 18 months - we’re moving toward aspects of Gemini and letting go of aspects of Sagittarius. Letting go of the ONE TRUTH fixation,ideology, zealotry, blind faith. We’re dissecting things and asking questions.
Intense full moon! Fixed energy - fixed water - very intense emotional stuff. The nodes moving into mutable energy - we want to change things and the Full moon brings up things that are hidden. It pulls up things that are shadowy material. It brings obsessiveness to the surface. Watch your emotions, watch what you’re fixating on, what info you’re taking in. This is a major detective energy - wants to get to the bottom of things, like a pit bull with a bone. It’s a great time to unearth things and bring things to the light.
This full moon helps you shed imbalances from the reproductive system and bowels: letting go and birthing.
What do you devote your mental energy to? Clearing out your mind, values, belief systems.
What are we excavating, digging up?
Pluto is a transformer.
We’re growing into our wisdom, with a slow, steady quality that comes through the body.
Right after the intensity of the full moon, there is some steadiness of the outer planets that are very slow.
Sun in Taurus sextile Neptune in Pisces.
Saturn stations retrograde through Sept 28 (PDT).
Review of responsibilities -- like a performance review.
Questioning, communication, speeding right along!
Jupiter stations retrograde through September 12.
Sun in Taurus trine Pluto in Capricorn (PDT).
Moon in mind, sun in body, with the Venus review.
Jupiter is the third planet to retrograde this week. Jupiter is about expansion growth, opportunities, your desire for all of those things.
Everything feels slow right now. Mars in Pisces is a water ballet.
Mental healing opportunity, healing to thought processes about yourself. We’re repatterning.
You may feel buzzy and uplifted - like after holding a challenging yoga pose, you get rewarded with a sparkly, bubbly beverage with strawberries and Joy Juice.
Venus (rx) in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces (2 of 3).
Review mode of things that didn’t work out or old lovers pop up. It feels nostalgic - oh how things used to be. Don’t do anything serious with love, money or haircuts during this time. ; )
Sun in Gemini trine Saturn (rx) in Aquarius
Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces
New Moon in Gemini
The mind and the heart come together. It’s a grand air trine: how you do relationships/partnerships with wisdom and responsibility. There’s a lot of mind activity, planting seeds for the next month, working with nervous system, communication, brain energy. Can also bring about technology - so many of us are on screens these days.
Cancer eclipse in June. Mercury moves from mind/logic into feelings/less words. Mercury retro all of them in water this year. Look at cancer in your own chart. It’s about feeling connected and nourished. Get in touch with your emotional needs, learn how to communicate them effectively.
Mutable signs questioning (gemini) and analysis (virgo) - developing a new flow or system.
There will be something you’ll feel like you need to change or make more efficient.
Wounded healer moment - beware of getting self-critical. Can you just be in a more graceful way making the changes without all the negative self talk?
To get a jump start on stabilizing for the shifts these cosmic shifts will instigate, below are the flowers I recommend for this lunar cycle:
Full Bloom: The wish-fulfilling botanical treasures in this blend awaken mind states that help us feel like like anything is possible. And in fact anything IS possible. It is usually just our tricky, sneaky minds that play tricks on us - with self-limiting patterns and false beliefs downloaded from family lineage, cultural messaging or past experiences that register 'messages' in the cells that affect our view of reality and what's possible.
Cacao Flower Elixir in our Flowerevolution Program: In the modern world, we’re often in a state of depletion and distraction. We cannot thrive because we’re constantly trying to meet our basic needs + find balance. Cacao helps us realize what we require in order to feel deeply nourished, supported + abundant, so we can feel replete and whole -- that our every need is met. When our needs -- even seemingly simple needs likeeating, drinking, sleeping, resting, taking breaks, and getting fresh air --are consistently met, instead of sacrificed, we can truly flourish and be prolific.
