We have a huge event kicking off at the beginning of this week’s forecast, which will likely produce major life changes in our own world!
Monday’s Full Moon lunar eclipse in Gemini, like any Full Moon eclipse, moves people based on what they have been focusing their energy on for the past six months. If you’ve been really hunkered down and focused on your goals, you’ll likely receive some answers at the beginning of the week.
Some of you might experience a massive boost of energy. Stay calm, and you will be a great resource for your friends who feel overwhelmed about everything happening at once.
We Enter a Waning Moon Phase
For the rest of the week, we will be in a waning Moon phase.
A big part of the process of manifesting is getting rid of activities and habitual thoughts that block us from really living our best lives. Ask yourself this week who, what, or how you can “clear” and “let go” to create a clean slate and more time to devote to becoming the rock star of your life!
Try playing some music that stirs your soul and meditate on the direction you want to go and what no longer feels in alignment with that, even if it’s just an attitude or a goal that no longer excites you.
Mercury Enters Sagittarius
Mercury enters Sagittarius on Tuesday, giving us a boost of adventurous and curious energy. We will feel inclined to push our comfort zone limits to get out and try new things.
Is there a subject, hobby, or career field that keeps popping into your mind that you can check out?
When it comes to love, we may be a bit more direct with people and brave about getting ourselves out there. This is a good week to build some new relationships or cultivate ones that are starting to grow.

As you become more interested in learning astrology, you can explore some new, exciting topics. One of those is likely Lilith! In astrology, Lilith is applied to four positions: Mean Black Moon Lilith, True Black Moon Lilith, Dark Moon Lilith, and asteroid Lilith.
Let’s get into the four Liliths in astrology, how to find them in your birth chart, and exactly what they mean.
To understand Lilith, we need to go all the way back to the Garden of Eden. Lilith was the very first woman and was Adam’s first wife…
The Mythology of Lilith
Like Adam, Lilith was made from the Earth, so she saw herself as equal to Adam, not inferior. When Adam wanted Lilith to be sexually submissive to him, she refused and was kicked out of Eden and replaced with Eve (who, being made from Adam, couldn’t refuse him).
What happened to Lilith after being kicked out of the Garden of Eden varies.
Since we’ve been a patriarchy all of this time, most of the stories weren’t pretty (like she went stark-raving mad and stole babies – they really didn’t think very highly of women back then, especially ones who didn’t do as they were told!).
The Four Liliths in Astrology
In astrology, we have four placements designated for Ms. Lilith.
Two are actually for the same thing, Black Moon Lilith. This is the most widely associated point with Lilith and most widely used by astrologers.
Black Moon Lilith
Black Moon Lilith has two positions: Mean and True or Oscillating. To be technical, Black Moon Lilith is the apogee of the Moon (the farthest point in the Moon’s orbit), and this movement is almost ridiculously wonky.
It’s really all over the place!
The exact position is called True or Oscillating Black Moon Lilith (sometimes labeled True/Oscillating). Mean Black Moon Lilith is the averaged-out position (smoothing out the wild movement).
There is debate about which is “better” or “accurate,” but you can look up both in your own natal chart and see which seems stronger or makes the most sense for you. Personally, I find True Black Moon Lilith tends to be a bigger influence in the natal chart, while I only use Mean Black Moon Lilith in transit (predictive work).
Dark Moon Lilith
Then we have Dark Moon Lilith.
Some people call Black Moon Lilith Dark Moon Lilith, but they’re not the same point (repeat, not the same point!). Given the confusion, to make it clearer, Dark Moon Lilith is more often called its other name, which is Waldemath or Waldemath Moon.
Waldemath is basically just a shadowy dust cloud. It’s only thought to exist and hasn’t actually been discovered (well, it was thought to be discovered by scientist George Waldemath, who it’s named after, but he later took that back; others have believed that it actually is there though, so it’s totally up for debate from a scientific perspective).
Finally, we have asteroid Lilith. This is the only physical body for Lilith since Black Moon Lilith is just a point in the Moon’s orbit, and Waldemath Moon is just a theoretical dust shadow.
Since asteroid Lilith is the only physical body, some argue that this is the most important Lilith (but Black Moon Lilith is still the most used).

What the Four Liliths in Astrology Mean
The four Liliths all revolve around the same Lilith mythology. Unfortunately, thanks to that previously-mentioned patriarchy, Lilith was given a very negative slant for most of her history.
Big surprise! (sarcasm is being used here.)
But we’re not having that now. Let’s look at the story of Lilith again. She saw herself as being equal to Adam. This means Lilith is a position that knows its value and self-worth. It doesn’t view itself as inferior to others and sees no reason to.
She refused to be submissive to Adam. This means Lilith is a position that stands up for itself and what it believes. It may experience opposition and consequences (since she did get kicked out of Eden), but that doesn’t matter.
It’s about what you believe is right.
Lilith is a hidden inner power source we all have rooted in valuing ourselves and standing up for what we believe. That’s some serious strength!
There are some other associations with Lilith, like witchiness. Lilith is the original witch, so having a strong Lilith can make you a super mystic.
Given the sexual side to Lilith’s story with Adam (and some stories that say she’s a sex demon), this point can also be connected to sexual desires, especially what’s repressed sexually. I find that it can also be connected to being sexually independent and not giving in to others’ sexual demands (like Lilith).
Some believe that all four Liliths can be interpreted the same way since they’re all linked to Lilith. Some believe that asteroid Lilith is a little more feminist and independent, and Dark Moon Lilith is a little darker and wilder.
You can see what they’re doing for you and judge for yourself.
Finding the Four Liliths in Your Birth Chart
I recommend using Astro.com to find your four Liliths in your birth chart since you can do them all at once.
Go to the website, click on My Astro (upper right), and then input your birth data (date, time, and place of birth). Click on Extended Chart Selection, and then click on Additional Objects (bottom).
Select “Lilith” in the menu (which will give you the Mean Black Moon Lilith position), and in the “Manual entry” box, type in: h13, h58, 1181
H13 is for True/Oscillating Black Moon Lilith, h58 is for Dark Moon Lilith (it’ll show as Waldemath), and 1181 is for asteroid Lilith.
Then generate your natal chart.
See which zodiac signs they’re located in, which of your natal houses they reside in, and what aspects they’re making to your chart. If any are conjunct (aligned with) any planets or house cusps in your natal chart, that one will be most prominent for you, and whatever is conjunct, it will get that Lilith energy in a big way!

The Inspiring Message You Need, Based on Your Moon Sign
Aries Moons are no stranger to feeling things intensely, and this is especially true for right now when emotions run high overall.
You’re not one to shy away from acting with impulse and emotion, falling under the passionate element of Fire. At times like these, it is helpful to re-center and find some stable footing (as much as possible) no matter how tempting it is to search for a conclusion.
As a passionate initiator, you have the most potential when you know with complete certainty to direct your powerful emotions and energy.
Aries Moon Affirmation
I am present, I am grounded, and I am in control of what I say and do.
Stability, abundance, and all things beautiful are ultimately your territory, Taurus Moons!
When it comes to channeling this energy into your emotional state, it’s all about claiming, owning, and accepting what truly is yours. As abundant and beautiful as your emotional garden ultimately may be, you also tend to put up walls quite stubbornly — sometimes also preventing you from accepting good stuff from the outside.
Taurus Moon Affirmation
I am blessed and open to receiving what is rightfully mine.
It can be a little lonely to be an innovator and inventor.
Gemini Moons are gifted with active, intellectual, and incredibly interesting emotional landscapes but aren’t always given the proper outlet to thrive. If you lack the right person to bounce your eclectic ideas and emotions off of, or can’t seem to find a creative outlet that works for you, sometimes this bottles up to create quite the stir.
You must remember that what you feel and experience is valid, regardless of whether you can find it mirrored back to you externally.
Gemini Moon Affirmation
I am valid in what I feel and experience, with or without approval.
You can have the sweetest tendency to want to tend to others, Cancer Moon, but this is also easily your Achilles heel.
As a Water elemental, you feel deeply for others and strongly desire emotional connection, intimacy, and vulnerability. And as Cancer itself is ruled by the Moon, you’re right at home with this placement, thus making it one of great potential with how you connect with yourself and others.
However, there is a time and a place for extending your reach outwards to others, and at times you must remember to take care of yourself and your own heart first.
Gemini Moon Affirmation
I prioritize my health and emotions when necessary and forge healthy connections with others.
Leo Moons are fierce lovers, fighters, and creatives but are also easily misunderstood.
Despite loving the spotlight to some degree, Leo Moons are anything but selfish. As a Fixed sign in an emotional placement, what you decide to devote your time and emotional energy to can be king. And as a passionate Leo specifically, there is nothing that you wouldn’t go down fighting for if it’s something that you truly love and care about.
Sometimes, all a Leo Moon needs is a little love and recognition for this kind of work and devotion!
Leo Moon Affirmation
I am a valued, important, and incredible friend, lover, and member of my social circles.
Perfectionist tendencies are present within all Virgo placements, but none will truly self-criticize like a Virgo Moon.
As a lover of organizing any emotional landscape (whether it’s someone else’s or your own), a Virgo Moon becomes any person’s best ally if they’re in need. If they’ve got problems, you’ve got solutions! However, you also have quite the knack for self-critique. At times, this desire to get to the nitty-gritty of your emotional state and understand everything leans into bullying or hyper-perfectionism.
Be kind to yourself, Virgo Moons, and remember that you don’t actually need to have all the answers.
Virgo Moon Affirmation
I am beautiful, smart, and important with all that I have in the here and now.

Libra Moons feel most at peace… when everyone else is.
As a mediator, you feel situations intensely when the peace isn’t being kept. Your desire to step in and make the world hold hands is very admirable. You’re probably the most adept for the job — being empathetic with Libra’s diplomatic qualities in the emotional Moon placement.
However, it’s important that you’re still able to keep your heart safe, secure, and prioritized even when you’re tempted to put others before yourself, Libra Moons.
Libra Moon Affirmation
I am balanced and resolute, and my good intentions always shine through.
There are few that understand the emotional intensity of a Scorpio Moon — and sometimes, you don’t even understand it yourself!
Brooding, curious, mysterious, and deep, a Scorpio Moon is intuitive and experiences emotions in great highs and lows. Often, Scorpio Moons thrive in alone time and need a healthy dose of solitude in order to get all the ducks in the row. Despite being most familiar with profound emotional waters, however, sometimes a Scorpio Moon just needs to remember to come back down to earth.
You may wish to solve the mysteries of yourself and the world in one sitting, Scorpio Moon, but there is life waiting for you right in front of you as well.
Scorpio Moon Affirmation
I validate the intensity of my emotions, as well as put them to use in my day to day life.
You are bold, bright, and unique, Sagittarius Moon, but sometimes keeping the focus on the day-to-day parts of life is not easy for you.
The flighty, passionate, and excitable Sagittarian spirit creates a bubbly, fiery, and enthusiastic emotional landscape in the Moon placement. As someone who loves adventure and is capable of feeling it on a level others are not usually able to, a Sagittarius Moon is a blessing to travel with, converse with, and all around have a good time with. However, one of the greatest lessons a Sagittarius Moon must learn is how to find that same thrill in the more “mundane” parts of life, rather than chase the thrill elsewhere.
If you can find the fire that constantly burns from within, you won’t need to go seek it halfway across the world!
Sagittarius Moon Affirmation
I find interesting, dynamic, and thought-provoking situations in my day-to-day life and seek to find enjoyment even in routine.
Behind some carefully constructed walls, Capricorn Moons do have profound insights about intuition and emotion to offer.
As a Capricorn Moon, you prefer to keep your emotions in check; there is often a rationale, rhyme, or reason behind everything you do — at least, that’s how you prefer things to be. Your wisdom and fortitude are definitely powerful, and there’s a unique charm to how Capricorn Moons prefer to carry their emotional state.
However, this is a place that very few are allowed to ever see, and at times you risk boxing yourself off from great opportunities because of this.
Capricorn Moon Affirmation
I feel safe and protected being emotionally vulnerable with people I care about, as I have great wisdom to offer.
Vibrant and eclectic, Aquarius Moons are the life of the party when it comes to Moon placements!
As a natural humanitarian, Aquarius placements desire the best for the wider collective. As an Aquarius Moon, you feel most at peace when you feel like you contribute to something important.
A sense of community can feed the spirit of an Aquarius Moon, but it’s important that you don’t get lost in the sea of many faces; it’s easy for you to forget to settle down and have heart-to-hearts in more intimate settings as well.
Aquarius Moon Affirmation
I contribute valued input to my community and foster love and harmony in my interpersonal connections.
Pisces Moons feel everything deeply… everything.
As this is one of the more emotionally intense moon placements, you are likely to have a strong sense of empathy and a strong desire to communicate and cohabitate with others. Sometimes, this communication is much more intuitive, as you can pick up on what others are feeling.
However, it’s important that you set up strong boundaries so that you can best support yourself and others. You have a gift, so make sure to protect it wisely!
Pisces Moon Affirmation
I am safe, strong, and protected, and so are my emotions.
Reflecting on Your Moon Sign
If you find yourself still unsure as to where you want to go next, that is A-ok. We aren’t always meant to have all the answers, but spending some time nurturing your Moon sign can certainly open doors to some important ones.
When you take care of the placement that is often most close to your heart, you are better able to take care of yourself and others as well.
Whether it is through affirmations or gently validating what you know is to be true about your heart and soul, astrology can open the gateway to better understanding your true inner world!

Christmas is all about connecting with our loved ones and appreciating those connections under the sparkling lights all around us. But the holidays can also be a lonely time, and many of us will be wishing for more than just our two front teeth from Santa this year.
There’s an inherent romance in the air with all of the festive music and twinkling decorations, and there are many people who wish they could share these moments with their soul mate – if only they’d met them already.
There’s no shame in wanting to meet your soul mate, especially during this time of year when we want little more than to cozy up underneath a blanket with a touching movie and a lover by their side.
That’s why we’ve created this guide to give you a boost and help you find your soul mate this Christmas! We’ll tell you what transits provide the most romantic energy this December, as well as give you some tips to start attracting your soul mate right away!
Upcoming Transits to Pay Attention To
When it comes to finding love, Venus is the planet to pay attention to because it is the planet of beauty and love. And this month, there are a few Venus transits that will allow you to find love of your own!
Venus & Neptune
On December 5th, 2020, Venus is in a positive aspect to Neptune, the dreamy planet of compassion and intuition.
This transit encourages you to fantasize about what your ideal lover would be like, which is a perfect visualization for attracting that person into your life. This is the day to manifest your ideal partner!
Venus & Pluto
On December 14th, 2020, Venus is in a pleasant aspect with Jupiter, the planet of expansion, and good fortune.
This transit indicates both good luck and romantic vibes. This might be a day of surprise encounters or chance meetings! Make sure you’re prepared and receptive to what the Universe may bring your way today.
Venus & Saturn
Finally, on December 15th, 2020, Venus is playing peacefully with Saturn, the karma planet.
New relationships may blossom today, especially if the two of you share a karmic connection. Soul mates are those with whom we have a history of past-life connections, so romantic feelings you experience with someone today would be a great indication that you two are meant to be.
While romance can flourish on any day, these are days that will be dripping with celestial, whimsical energy that you should take advantage of if you’re looking for your soul mate this Christmas!
How to Attract Your Holiday Soul Mate
No matter what or how you celebrate, there are ways that you can begin attracting your soul mate now. Let’s take a look at the most important things you should be doing now if you want to attract them by the holidays!
Make a Manifestation Board
One of the most powerful tools of manifestation is the vision board.
The concept is simple enough: Take a poster board and cover with images and phrases representing what you want to manifest into your life. Looking at the board each day helps the visions stay imprinted in your mind, making your intentions even more potent and powerful.
Another bonus of the vision board is that it gets your creative juices flowing, and when your creativity is flowing, the creativity of the Universe picks up speed as well. Self-expression is an important part of manifestation – being able to say what you want out of life. And creative self-expression allows you to play with the tools you already have.
Throw in a splash of red to represent the romance you desire. Sprinkle flakes of gold glitter to represent the wealth and abundance you want to attract. The sky is the limit, and the dreams are yours to create.

Look for Coincidences
While we use the word coincidence here, there really isn’t such a thing as a coincidence – everything that happens in the Universe happens for a reason. But you may start to notice certain signs and synchronicities when your soul mate is just around the corner, waiting to meet you.
For instance, if a large number of your friends or family begin suggesting that you try a certain new take-out place or you keep running into the same cute hunk on your morning coffee run, pay attention. There may be a lesson in there for you or someone you’re meant to meet and interact with.
While we’re spending more time than ever indoors and separated from people, that doesn’t meet that meeting your soul mate is impossible right now. You might even meet them in an online chat room or on a forum for a certain interest or hobby.
So, if you’ve been drawn to a new hobby or activity, take that as a sign to go for it!
Incubate Your Dreams
You might think that your nightly dreams are random or that there’s no controlling them. But with some effort and a little bit of time, you can actually plant dreams into your subconscious. And when you dream about your deepest desires, you’re projecting those desires into the astral realm and amplifying the effect of your manifestations.
The more relaxed you are before bedtime, the better your results will be. That means avoiding caffeine, alcohol, or screen time before you settle in for the night. Try having a nice, relaxing bath or shower with lavender essential oil to promote deep, restful sleep.
Before you close your eyes for the night, you might open your journal and write about what you want to dream. Write about how you want to meet your soul mate, where you want to be, and what you want your surroundings to look like.
Do you meet them at a carousel, watching the spinning horses on their golden beams? Do your eyes meet across the train station on a cold, winter morning?
Imagine how you feel when you meet them.
Do butterflies start flittering about in your stomach? Does your heart thump hard and loud? Do you have to stop and catch your breath?
Write down words and phrases like, “I want to meet my soul mate.” “I want to dream about meeting my great love.” You can also do little things to remind yourself of your intentions. For instance, try writing the word “remember” on a sticky note and placing it on the glass of water on your bedside table to help you remember your dreams when you wake up.
You can also use that same journal to write your dreams down as soon as you wake up to forget them. Bringing your desires into your dreamscape will help solidify your intentions within the Universe.
Hold Out for What You Really Want
You are a fantastic person who is deserving of the exact love they seek, so this is not the time to think about settling, even for a second. Even if you feel lonelier than you ever have, this is not the time to go for relationships that don’t fill you with a sense of excitement, passion, and wonder.
Hold strong to your desires and keep your eye on the prize. When you practice patience and refuse to settle for less than what you really want, you can be sure that any relationships that form right now are based on an actual spark and not just the holiday blues.
Keep that image in your mind of the perfect romance, the lover or partner that makes you feel comfortable, secure, in love, happy, silly, and head over heels all at the same time.
It’s also a good idea to take this time to focus on yourself and your surroundings, taking care of your health and self-care needs. Make sure that you’re in the healthiest, most grounded place ever so that you can accept the love flowing into your life with open arms.
Preparing to meet your soul mate takes time and patience, but it’s important to stay strong right now. Hold to your most genuine desires, and don’t settle for anything less.
Try Something New
People often get stuck in certain ruts, especially when we feel bored or lonely. It’s easy to order the same Chinese takeout and watch your favorite TV show for the fifth night in a row when you feel like there’s nothing better to do.
But you’ll likely never meet your soul mate sitting on your couch and watching TV, so this is the time to try something new.
While we can’t be as adventurous and connected as we usually are this year, there are still ways to try new things safely, opening your eyes to new possibilities and opportunities. And while you won’t meet your future love watching TV, you may be able to swing meeting them from the comfort of your couch.
Many people have turned to online dating this year, especially due to the global health pandemic we’ve been facing. With the advent of online dating applications, you can get to know someone from the safety and comfort of your own home.
If you haven’t tried online dating before, we understand that it may feel scary or intimidating, but there’s really nothing to it. Post a few of your favorite pictures of yourself, write something snappy and interesting in your bio, and start talking to potential matches!
If you hit it off with someone, you can discuss how you’d like to move forward safely with the dating process.
The point is, trying something new like online dating might be exactly what you need to boost your confidence and bring you that much closer to your soul mate!
Make Room for Love to Come
Even when you’ve met your soul mate, it may be hard to recognize that if you’re clinging to the past or bogged down by baggage left over from your last relationship. It’s time to clear the negativity and make room for the new love to enter your life!
Declutter your home, making sure to rid yourself of any trinkets or t-shirts left over by your ex. Cleanse your space with sage and incense, crystals and candles, to infuse your home with positivity and openness and let the negativity of the past fade away.
Write in your journal to clear your thoughts and encourage yourself to heal from past tension or heartaches. It’s important to move on from those who have let you down in the past to make sure that you aren’t bringing those heavy emotions into any future relationships just around the corner.
Remind yourself that you are strong and independent, and while you don’t need anyone by your side, you’re ready to open up and let love come into your sphere.
Welcome Love With the Holiday Season!
The holidays can be even more exciting and enjoyable with a lover by your side, so it’s no wonder that we all feel a stronger push to meet our soul mates during this time. But try to remember that you are enough on your own, and you can have a wonderful time this Christmas season with friends and family!
Keep these special dates and tips in mind to begin attracting your soul mate into your life. At the end of Christmas day, however, make sure to be grateful for yourself. After all, you’re the best gift you’ve ever received!

Looking to add one extra layer of depth and clarity to your next Tarot reading?
Enter: the Tarot Quint.
The power of numerology cannot be understated — this much we all know, as it carries throughout our lives in literally every way, shape, and form.
You can’t go anywhere without seeing some set of numbers at some point. But did you know that when applied to Tarot in specific or unique ways and methods, you can make even additional magic?
Today, we’re going to learn about the Tarot Quint, a method that combines the best of both worlds — tarot and numerology — to create something unique and powerful.
Make sure to check in on your free daily Tarot reading for even more insights!
What is the Tarot Quint?
If you’re at all acquainted with the Tarot, you know how important a number can be to an individual card meaning or an entire spread.
Often, they help us remember what ties the Tarot together; 5’s are full of conflict and difficulty, and 10’s represent the completion or fulfillment of a path, for example.
Stemming from the words “quintessential” or “quintessence,” the Tarot Quint is a card that represents the overarching theme or message of a Tarot spread. And in its own way, the Tarot Quint is about identifying a kind of tie through numerology.
The Tarot Quint card will be calculated and correspond to a Major Arcana card, and this will be the card that represents a core theme and message for the entirety of your spread.
How to Find the Tarot Quint
Calculating the Tarot Quint is actually very simple!
In your Tarot spread, you will take the number value of each card and add them together. If a card is reversed, you can consider this to be a negative number. If you receive a negative number, this is a reversed card, and if you receive a larger number than 22, you can reduce the number by adding up the individual numbers in your original result.
With the Minor Arcana suits, you simply use the card numbers as part of the equation.
The key with the court cards is to devise a system that works for you, but a common way to assign numbers to the courts is to go up from 11. (As a result, page = 11, knight = 12, queen = 13, king = 14). So long as you work out a system that works for you and stick with it, you can use the Quint however you see fit.
Now, let’s do some math to test it out!
If your Tarot spread consists of The Moon (18), the Ace of Cups reversed (-1), and The Sun (19), adding up all of these values would result in the number 36.
However, the goal is to receive a number that corresponds to the Major Arcana, so we need to reduce this number by adding 3 and 6, which creates 9. In the Major Arcana, this is the Hermit — and thus, our Quint for this reading!

How to Use the Tarot Quint
Now that you’ve calculated the Tarot Quint, it’s time to reflect on what this means for your reading.
As we already established, the Tarot Quint is a card that represents the overall theme or message of a reading.
In our previous example, the spread consisted of The Moon, the Ace of Cups reversed, and The Sun, and our Tarot Quint was The Hermit. Let’s actually break this example down!
The Moon and The Sun both bring different kinds of wisdom and intense emotion to a situation. The Moon is a mystery and confusion card, while The Sun is about joy and returning to one’s true passion and happiness. With the Ace of Cups reversed on the table, perhaps the querent is also feeling a bit drained and detached from love overall, and The Sun and The Moon are here to represent the complex emotions that they might be experiencing because of this.
And in this situation, we can see that with The Hermit as the Tarot Quint, the primary takeaway from the reading should be that more reflection, solitude, and pause is necessary for the querent. The Hermit acts as a simple, helpful, and accurate representation of the reading’s overall summary and key themes.
It’s that simple!
Keep in Mind…
Similar to learning any new method or spread, the Tarot Quint may not always immediately make sense to you at first glance. It may take some extra practice to get the hang of using the Tarot Quint to see how it really fits with your Tarot practice.
However, at the end of the day, much like with all Tarot interpretations, what is most important is using an interpretation that genuinely speaks to your intuition and actually helps you gain clarity and insight. The Tarot Quint is just one extra layer of insight that you can add to your Tarot toolbox if need be, and not the end-all-be-all of your reading.
That said, it is always worth a go to combine the powers of numerology and Tarot if both systems are interesting or helpful to you.
Ultimately, they are here to help!

What better way to embrace this new season than by looking as fabulous as possible. With these style tips you will be well ahead of the game when it comes to nailing the latest fashion looks and trends. We’ve broken down your perfect summer style, based on your zodiac sign. Let’s dive in!
Your Perfect Summer Style, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
This is the time of year that you have been longing for, Aries, and you are ready to step into summer in all of your fiery fabulousness, as you should!
For the Aries woman, you want to play up the feminine graces, and instead of your usual wild popping colors and lines, think sweet and flowy fabrics that give hints to your awesome figure. The color of the season for both men and women Aries is purple. Try a shade of lavender or lilac, while the Aries man could try a bold plum.
Instead of choosing bold prints, either men or women Aries, choose clothes that are solid colors, and make your wild statements this summer with accessories. Famous Aries to model your style after are Peyton Manning, Lady Gaga, and Emma Watson.
Most importantly, channel your “inner you.”
Elegance and indulgence are your middle names, Taurus, and that goes for men and women. Stick to the earth tones in all of your summer staples, khakis and chino shorts for the Taurus men, and long green and earthy colored maxi dresses for Taurus women.
Bring your garden to your wardrobe with wild prints, but not on your main staples. Let your accessories do the talking, Taurus.
Your big floppy hat, Jackie O shades, and scarves will be your go-to, as they always are. Timeless pieces for all Taurus’ are going to be what helps you to stand out. Crisp white shirts with a flowered skirt will bring out your Earthy Venus goddess, or for men, denim and the same style top is ruggedly sexy.
For women, matte lips and your Jackie O shades are all you need to leave the house with when it comes to your gorgeous face. Famous Taurus’ to model your style after are Adele and Queen Elizabeth!
Being symbolized by the twins, Gemini, you always have the best sense of style, and you can go either way your mood takes you. Trying adopting two personalities when it comes to your summer style. One for your inner bad boy or bad girl, and one for your good side.
Keep your day look clean and structured with pencil thin black skirts or denim with a brightly colored button down shirt. For the Gemini woman, plunge a little with the V-neck. Try stretchy fabrics that show off all of the right things, and don’t be shy with the color silver Gemini men!
Textured fabrics like leather, suede, or a little bit of rhinestone will send the message of your inner wild child. When trying to channel Gemini style this summer, think of the two very different looks in Gemini fashion icons Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, the poster girls for Gemini. This summer, you get to channel every look you want.
Go for it, Gemini.
If you haven’t splurged on you in a while, now is the time to do so. The Cancer woman should model fellow Cancerian Princess Diana’s iconic sleek look with a sexy twist in all of the watery shades that Cancer loves: mellow blues, soft pink hues, and turquoise pops in all of the right places.
Think of the sunset on the beach when you choose your colors for summer, Cancer, whether you are male or female. A new party dress, or two even, will be worth the splurge, and you won’t regret it either.
You also can get away with the odd animal print, but only in bite sized chunks. Other Cancers you can model that embody the sleek and classic looks of Princess Di include Selena Gomez and Tom Cruise.
You want to hit the ground running with bold colors that show off your fiery personality, Leo, but since that’s your usual forte, try something different.
A new haircut may be the only fashion staple you need this summer, and we’re encouraging you to go red, maybe with some fun highlights. You also want to pile on the gold whenever and wherever possible. Whatever you wear, you will attract attention, because the Sun is shining on you in abundance.
Just want to have some fun? A flirty cocktail dress for the Leo woman, or a sexy new print shirt for the Leo man will be all you need to turn heads. Sexy and saucy Leos you want to model your fashion sense after this summer include President Barack Obama and Jennifer Lopez!
The period of late spring is one of your favorite times of year, Virgo, as the spring supports your inclination to reap success from your work. You have been cautious all winter when it comes to your style, so now is your time to break the mold a little bit and show off what you got.
Simple staples are generally your thing, but this summer you are going to want to take that up a notch. Loosen your collars, shorten your hemlines, and think of yourself as the sophisticated school girl that is playing hooky on the Upper East Side. Be bold, and choose Earth tones like emerald greens. Animal prints are also in your favor for summer fun for both the Virgo man and Virgo woman.
Famous Virgos you can model your style after including Michael Jackson, and the iconic Beyonce Knowles.

Being ruled by Venus, you particularly love your bling and your luxury, and this summer is the summer for you to really bring it out, Libra.
Being an Air sign, you often want to make sure that you are crisp and clean at all times. Spice it up a little bit by adding rhinestone to your shades, your handbag, or even your white top. Libra men and Libra women can be stylish and elegant this summer with accessories such as a new watch, or a new pair of shoes. Splurge a little bit as you move into this new season, rather than reusing what you have in your closet.
Famous Librans you can model your style after including Avril Lavigne, Will Smith, and Hilary Duff.
You feel like you have suffered an extreme winter, and your style has started to show it, dear Scorpio. Perhaps you are tired of getting up every day and getting to the grind, and this is precisely why you need to amp up the wardrobe this season.
You want as many bright colors as possible in your wardrobe this summer, especially if you are single. Time to break out the cuts and the skirt lengths as well, so you can finally start getting that attention that you deserve. Cropped jackets on top of a neutral palette will be super sexy, especially for the cooler evenings you are going to want to drag out as long as you can.
Your mission, whether you are a Scorpio male or Scorpio female, is to experiment and remind the world how fun you are with your new summer wardrobe. Think bold greens, popping purples, and reds that turn heads. Famous Scorpios you can model this summer if you are stuck are Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry.
High on your summer agenda should be travel and literature, Sagittarius, and you want to look that part as well. Channel two sides: be part sexy librarian by day with long bohemian skirts and peasant blouses, and then let your hair down with a pair of extra-large sunglasses by night to show off your fun side.
Bright colors in the fire shade family are also going to stoke your fancy. Orange will be the new black for Sag this year, as will poppy reds, mustard yellows, and bold bright prints that combine all of those shades. This goes for the Sagittarius man and the Sagittarius woman.
Sexy Sags you can model your style after including Taylor Swift and Brad Pitt.

You have spent the winter working diligently as usual, and even you are ready to break the mold a little bit Capricorn. It is about time!
Tropical earth tones are going to be your friend this summer. Long and flowy blouses, skirts, or dresses will cater to the Capricorn woman’s sensual and Earthy side. For the Capricorn man, you can accomplish the same goal in shirts and shorts that are lighter in fabric, and less structured than what you would wear to the office. Amp up your office look with tropical hued accents, like a turquoise tie and matching socks, or an emerald green scarf tied around your waist, instead of your neck.
Be as luxurious as you want to be, and invest in that item you have been secretly eyeing all winter. It’s time to treat yourself! Famous Capricorns you can model your style after include the royalty of Kate Middleton and the King, Elvis Presley.
When it comes to fashion, Aquarius, you don’t really fuss too much no matter what season it is. You prefer to spend your time worrying about the world at large. That’s fine, but this summer you won’t have to spend a lot of time on your look to attract the people and situations that will help you with those world-sized problems.
You can accomplish that goal by keeping it clean and classic, and keeping those lines as crisp as possible. That doesn’t mean boring. Instead, this gives you a little leeway to get those structured pencil jeans you have been craving. For the Aquarius woman, pair the jeans with a simple but off the shoulder top, and you will leave them wondering.
For the Aquarius man, try a V neck under your sport coat for a bold yet classic look. When it comes to accessorizing Aquarius, leave it to the imagination of your audience. If you do put on some bling, keep it as simple and classic as possible. A silver chain for the woman, and a vintage bracelet for the men.
Aquarians can model their summer style from Jennifer Aniston and Taylor Lautner.
Pisces, you are ready to come out of your cave and celebrate summer, and you want to do it in a style that makes you feel good.
For you, soft fabrics that are sheer and feel smooth on the skin will work in your favor From lace, to eyelet, to silk, to satin … you get the picture, there are lots of choices! Pisces men and Pisces women will do well with loose-fitting clothing over a tailored structured look, as this will lend more comfort in their mutable ways.
Choose colors that are soft as well, such as the ballet pink, or a soft blue when choosing your summer staples. Not sure what to channel? Think ethereal, fairy like and bohemian styles when working up your summer wardrobe.
Fellow Pisces you can take some clues from include Carrie Underwood, Rihanna, and Jon Bon Jovi.
So, which style will you rock this summer? All of us are extremely unique, so don’t be afraid to spice up your wardrobe in whatever way you want to. Maybe you’re a Pisces who is more drawn towards the style we’ve written about for a Capricorn. Go for it!
Embrace the summer, and have some fun.

Are you crushing and your co-worker, unsure of how to make your move? Are you experiencing misunderstandings or disagreements with your current partner? If you answered “yes” to either of these questions, this guide is for you.
You’ve probably heard of astrological compatibility, a concept that typically looks at the Sun signs of two individuals to determine whether or not their personalities will mesh well together. But, did you know that your natal chart – or birth chart – contains much more information that is useful when exploring your love life?
In fact, one of the most important signs in your chart – your Moon sign – can be just as effective, if not more, at determining astrological compatibility.
This is because your Sun sign represents the core of your personality, and who you are on the deepest levels. However, your Moon sign is connected to your emotions, and how you relate to others emotionally, which are both important factors in a romantic relationship.
When you understand the dynamic between your Moon sign and the Moon sign of another person, it’s easier to understand that person on an emotional level.
Today we’re going to look at the Moon sign and its effect on our romantic relationships, allowing you to discover even more about the dynamics between you and your crush, or your partner.
Make sure to get your free birth chart reading done so that you can discover your unique Moon sign!
How Does the Moon Affect Your Love Life?
Think about the beginning of a new romantic relationship, the feelings involved, the butterflies you get when you see that person or receive a new text message from them. These feelings stem from your emotional center. And while logic and reason may have their place in romance, emotions are what tend to govern our hearts and our feelings about another individual.
The Moon is the celestial body that governs your emotions and how you choose to share (or hide) your feelings with others. The personality traits and characteristics of a certain zodiac sign still apply in this position, however they shift from the spirit to the heart.
For instance, Leo is a sign that is warm, friendly, and outgoing. When someone’s Moon sign falls under Leo, they’re likely to share their feelings with their loved ones enthusiastically, and they don’t shy away from public displays of affection. Conversely, someone with a Moon in Aquarius may be hesitant to participate in public displays of affection or the sharing of emotions.
This is why it’s so important to look at more than one sign in your chart when determining compatibility with someone. Your Sun signs might flow beautifully together; but, if your Moon signs disagree, it can be a challenging union.
And when two Moon signs flow well together, you can expect a relationship that is overflowing with empathy, understanding, and passion.

Most & Least Compatible Moon Signs
Now that you know a bit more about how the Moon affects your love life, let’s take a look at some of the most and least compatible matches between Moon signs.
Most Compatible Moon Signs
Aries & Leo
Because these are both Fire signs, a union between an Aries Moon and a Leo Moon can be fiery, passionate, and adventurous.
Aries is a self-motivated, driven person who goes after what they want in life – no matter the cost. Leo’s playful spirit helps Aries lighten up and have a little fun. On the other hand, Aries helps Leo focus and stay motivated, allowing them to follow through with their plans.
The only downside here is the potential for anger or emotional outbursts, but Aries and Leo are both good at calming down almost as quickly as they became upset.
Sexually, this union is powerful and passionate, thanks to the Fire energy flowing through both parties. If Aries can learn to be less serious and Leo can pay a bit more attention in the bedroom, this can be a wildly fulfilling union.
Cancer & Taurus
While Cancer is a Water sign and Taurus is an Earth sign, these two Moon signs join to form a deeply loyal bond – and they actually have quite a bit in common.
Both Taurus and Cancer appreciate a beautiful home where they feel surrounded by comfort and security. Additionally, these signs share a desire for financial stability and success. Taurus and Cancer can appreciate a loving, peaceful home where each party is dedicated to the other.
It may not seem like the most passionate union, but this sense of peace and stability brings both Cancer and Taurus joy.
Intimacy between these two will be deep and loving. If you crave comfort and appreciation in your relationships, this will be a perfect pairing.
Gemini & Libra
These Air signs are the social butterflies of the zodiac. Both Libra and Gemini Moons love to spend time near people in deep, stimulating conversations.
This couple will never get bored, as there are always ideas and visions flowing through their consciousness – and they will enjoy sharing these ideas with one another. Gemini and Libra tend to relate their emotions through thought and communication rather than depth of feeling, and this couple will find comfort in the lack of over-the-top displays of emotion.
The keyword for this couple is “fun,” which is exactly what their romantic and sexual life will entail.
Capricorn & Virgo
As Earth Signs, both Capricorn and Virgo Moons are responsible and grounded. They don’t take their feelings out on the people around them, but rather they try to find appropriate outlets for emotions and solutions to their problems.
These two Moon signs will work together to overcome any obstacle that stands in their way. And while this union may not possess a sense of emotional passion, that’s the way these two Moon signs prefer it.
Your shared love of Mother Nature means you’ll be spending a lot of time outdoors together. There is a sense of comfort and stability in their love life that helps these two form a secure, committed attachment.

Sagittarius & Aquarius
Sagittarius is a Fire sign, full of passion and creativity, while Aquarius is an intellectual, independent Air sign.
Both Sagittarius and Aquarius Moons desire a deep sense of freedom and individuality in their relationships – neither one of these individuals cares to be tied down. This couple enjoys their alone time, and doesn’t feel insecure when they aren’t together each and every day.
As the two signs of the zodiac that are most likely to travel, this pair can enjoy adventures all over the world together.
While neither Moon sign is likely to adore public displays of affection, their chemistry is fully realized when they are at home alone with one another.
Pisces & Scorpio
These two Moon signs share the common ruling element, Water. As such, both Pisces and Scorpio tend to experience their emotions on a deeper level than most other signs.
When these two form a couple, you can expect open, honest communication, and the respect of one another’s feelings. Pisces and Scorpio Moons are both creative and intuitive, giving them an advantage over other unions – it’s almost as if they can read each other’s minds.
While there may be jealousy within this relationship, you should be able to talk to each other lovingly about it.The keyword in this union is “romance,” and you can expect lots of it.
Least Compatible Moon Signs
Cancer & Aquarius
This pairing can bring disagreements and misunderstandings, as these two Moon signs relate emotionally in very different ways.
Whereas Cancer likes to talk openly about their emotions and digest them thoroughly, Aquarius would prefer to think them through and quickly move on. Cancer Moons are affectionate and romantic, while Aquarius Moons prefer a more subtle approach.
Capricorn & Leo
A Capricorn Moon’s grounded, responsible nature can seem stuffy, even boring, to a Leo Moon. Leo wants to go out on the town and have some fun, but Capricorn knows there are chores to be done at home, and prefers tending to those responsibilities.
Likewise, Capricorn Moon may be turned off by Leo Moon’s carefree approach to life. While these two may enjoy flirting, a sustainable, long-lasting relationship may be difficult to maintain.
Pisces & Libra
While these two Moon signs are friendly and often romantic, their common interests are limited. Libra is all about balance and diplomacy, while Pisces prefers romance and daydreaming.
Libra’s detached relationship to emotions may hurt the feelings of sensitive Pisces. While these two may be able to work things out with lots of patience, it can be difficult for them to relate to one another on a deep, emotional level.
Looking Beyond Astrological Compatibility
Astrology can absolutely help you determine whether or not you might mesh with someone, but there are no hard and fast rules when it comes to astrological compatibility.
Two Moon signs might be completely compatible, and end up not getting along at all. On the other hand, if two people are willing to work hard enough, they can make nearly any union flow smoothly. The point is, don’t panic if you didn’t find yourself and your partner or crush listed as the most compatible Moon signs in existence – you can still work it out!
This guide is meant to give you the basic information regarding compatibility and Moon signs, as well as help you understand how to relate to your partner emotionally based on their Moon sign. If you want to know how to connect with someone on the deepest level possible, read up on their Moon placement to learn about how they prefer to relate emotionally.
Full Moons represent the completion of a lunar cycle, but they’re also about the completion of something in our own lives. If you started a new project, relationship, or manifestation ritual during the previous New Moon, those things will be starting to complete or fulfill themselves during the Full Moon. This lunar phase represents the beginning of a fresh new cycle, allowing you to release or let go of things from the recent past that no longer suit you.
A Full Moon in Aquarius is currently approaching, bringing us closer to the end of this lunar cycle and the beginning of a new phase in our lives.
Aquarius is a Fixed sign ruled by Air, and those falling under this sign will feel the effects of this Full Moon more deeply and intensely than other signs. Additionally, other Air signs – Gemini and Libra – will also experience this Full Moon more profoundly. However, every zodiac sign can harness the energy of this Full Moon in Aquarius and use it to their fullest advantage!
Upcoming Full Moon Dates
The Full Moon in Aquarius occurs on August 3rd of this year.
The following Full Moon will be in Pisces, and it takes place on September 2nd. Following that is a Full Moon in Aries occurring on the 1st of October. This year, we’ll see two Full Moons in October, with one taking place on Halloween – something that only happens about once every 20 years.
This Full Moon on Halloween will be in the sign of Taurus.

Key Themes of The Full Moon in Aquarius
Each planet takes on the qualities, traits, and themes of the sign (or constellation) that it’s currently traveling through. Therefore, when the Full Moon takes place in Aquarius, you can expect the traits and themes of this sign to enter into our emotional lives.
Because Aquarius is an Air sign and the Moon rules over our emotions, you can expect your emotions to take on a rational, thoughtful quality. In other words, you may find yourself thinking about your feelings more than actually experiencing them. Aquarius asks you to set your emotions aside and think things through carefully.
What the Full Moon in Aquarius Means for You
When the Full Moon falls in Aquarius, you can expect any eccentric aspects of your personality to be amplified.
Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, a planet that admires eccentricity and rebellion over blind compromise. Uranus brings unexpected energy and shirks tradition, encouraging you to let your freak flag fly.
An Aquarius Full Moon urges you to anticipate the unexpected – especially when it comes to your emotions.
2) Humanitarian Energy
Aquarius is a sign that wants to change the world one action at a time. Aquarians want to use their energy for the good of humanity. And when the Full Moon is in this sign, you’ll begin to take on this energy as well.
The Full Moon’s influence can be felt for a couple days before and after the Full Moon takes place – so you may spend this week trying to determine how you can use your own talents and skills to help make the world a better place.
3) Innovation & Big Ideas
This sign represents the brains of the zodiac. Think of Aquarius as the Einstein of the astrological calendar. The Air element ruling Aquarius stirs your thought process and helps you come up with creative new ideas, while Uranus encourages thinking outside the box.
When these aspects come together, you may receive flashes of insight from the Universe. Brilliant thoughts are flowing through you during this time, so pay attention to them!
4) Search for New Truth & Perspective
The airy nature of Aquarius is always seeking new information and nuggets of wisdom in this life.
This transit will encourage you to seek truth and explore the hidden areas of life. Uranus, Aquarius’ ruling planet, is a lover of spontaneity and new experiences, encouraging you to see things from a different point of view.
Aquarius may not be considered the most romantic sign in the zodiac, as they tend to keep their feelings to themselves, and they aren’t the biggest fans of public displays of affection.
However, this sign is loyal to their loved ones, even if they approach romance from a logical point of view.
During this Full Moon, your sense of romance will take on this logical stance, allowing you to view your relationship from a new angle. This logical stance may help you realize why you care for and appreciate your loved ones so deeply, allowing you to express your loyalty in new, exciting ways.
8 Ways to Use the Aquarius Full Moon’s Energy
You might be wondering what the best way to take advantage of this Full Moon is. If you aren’t exactly sure how to properly channel the energy of the Full Moon in Aquarius, here are a few tips that will help you make the most of this lunar phase.
1) Make Time for Your Loved Ones (And Yourself)
Aquarians are fiercely independent, but they also appreciate time spent with friends and family. This sign enjoys group activities and projects, making this an excellent time to share moments of joy and appreciation with your friends and family.
However, you can’t neglect the part of yourself that needs alone time to rest, relax, and recharge. Follow your intuition – when you feel like socializing, call your loved ones; but if you need a moment to yourself, take it.
2) Practice Self-Restraint
Because Uranus encourages spontaneity, you may find yourself experience random cravings or bursts of unexpected energy. This spontaneous vibe can make you feel a bit wild, like you’re not sure what to expect from yourself.
This can lead to indulging and impulsive behavior, and it’s crucial that you learn to reign that energy in.
Like a wild horse running through an empty field, this energy can take you on an unexpected ride. Try to take a moment or two to think things through before making any decisions or taking action.
3) Focus on Projects Rather Than Problems
The Full Moon brings a lot of energy, and it typically surrounds our emotions. With the airy, intellectual nature of Aquarius affecting you, you may feel the urge to think or even ruminate about your problems. And if you allow yourself to fall into this cycle of overthinking, you may end up taking your frustrations out on those around you.
But this is the time to start focusing on the solutions rather than the problems themselves.
Allow the intelligent energy of this Full Moon to wash over you, helping you focus on new projects rather than the things that are bothering you. Turn that frustration into motivation!
4) Spread the Love
The humanitarian nature of Aquarius makes this the perfect time to be generous and kind to those around you. When you spread the love and share your positive energy with the world, you’ll start to feel more positive and supported yourself. When you share your love and light with the world, you can expect it to come back around to you.
Practice generosity right now for a generous helping of good karma in the future.
5) Seek Truth & Knowledge
All this intellectual energy encourages you to gather more information about life, to seek knowledge and wisdom in all things. Additionally, seeking truth and knowledge can serve as a distraction from negativity or frustrating emotions.
Use this time to study and learn about things that you find interesting, expanding your mind and helping you grow both mentally and emotionally.
6) Embrace Your Quirky Side
We all have little habits or facets of our personality that are a bit quirky, or even weird. This is the time to embrace those parts of yourself, and practice gratitude for the interesting and unique traits that make you so wonderful.
Be as weird as you want to be right now – make up new sounds or dances, record yourself doing a one-person skit, or write a science-fiction themed short story.
It doesn’t matter how you embrace your quirks, as long as you aren’t holding yourself back.
7) Reconsider Your Values
Aquarius is a sign that urges you to stand up for what you believe in – which is much easier when you know exactly what it is that you believe in. This is the perfect time to reassess your values to determine if they’re still working for you.
The world is changing right now, especially as we move into the Age of Aquarius. Allow yourself and your beliefs to change alongside the world, growing and shifting with the times.
Re-evaluating your values can also help you understand the ways in which you’ve grown as an individual, encouraging you to practice gratitude for your personal growth and transformation.
8) Use This Aquarius Full Moon Ritual
Aquarius is an Air sign, and when the Full Moon is in Aquarius, you will benefit from purifying the air around you.
While it sounds simple and self-explanatory – we all want clean air, after all – many of us forget about the benefits of cleansing your home and the sacred space within it. The following suggestions can be done in any order and will work to cleanse your home and help you feel more peaceful.
Light Candles or Use Essential Oils
Light your favorite candles, especially those with teal, blue, or aquamarine colors in it. Or, try diffusing your favorite essential oils throughout your home. (If you have pets, just be sure to research which essential oils are safe to use around animals.)
You can also fill a spray bottle with filtered water, a few drops of essential oils like lavender or peppermint, and small chunks of clear quartz or citrine to create a healing, uplifting room spray.
Use Sage or Palo Santo
Another great way to clear the energy in your home is by using sage or Palo Santo. It may seem counter intuitive, but certain types of smoke actually work to clear negative energy from the home.
Just remember that Palo Santa will clear negative energy only, while sage clears all energy – both positive and negative.
Depending on the type of cleansing you prefer, light a stick of Palo Santo or a bundle of sage and carry it throughout your home, allowing the smoke to fill and cleanse each room. Be sure to waft the smoke into corners and doorways for the best results.
Clearing the air of stale or negative energy in your home will also help you clear your mind, promoting mental and emotional clarity.
Take Time to Journal
The Full Moon is also a great time to purge any emotions, thoughts, or beliefs that might be holding you back right now. Grab a notebook and a pen and write down any negative feelings or ideas that are bothering you, and then imagine these feelings flowing out of your body and away from you.
Use Crystals or Herbs
There are also many crystals that can help you clear your home and your mind of negativity:
- Clear Quartz is a master healer that absorbs negative energy and heals emotional wounds.
- Amethyst is an emotionally soothing stone that will help you feel stronger in the face of overwhelming emotions.
- Aquamarine connects to the energy of Aquarius, clears the mind, and makes it easier for you to communicate your thoughts and feelings to others.
- Hematite is a grounding stone that will help you remain calm and peaceful when dealing with emotional upsets.
- Tiger’s Eye will protect you and prevent you from taking on the negative energy of others.

Additionally, there are many herbs that are beneficial to work with right now, including rosemary, sage, valerian, and mint.
Use the Energy of the Full Moon to Your Advantage
The energy of any Full Moon can feel overwhelming – but you’re not alone with these feelings. We all feel a bit more tender when the Moon is at its fullest, causing our emotions to spill over. And with the unconventional, surprising energy of Aquarius influencing this Full Moon, you shouldn’t be surprised when unexpected, spontaneous emotions begin to flow.
But, if we can all learn to accept this zany energy and use it for good, this can be a healing time that encourages growth of the spirit and transformation of emotional energy.
Keep your heart and your mind open to new possibilities right now. Expect the unexpected. Don’t judge yourself or others during this time, because we’re all experiencing similarly confusing, emotionally charged energy right now. If you can learn to accept and appreciate this energy, this can be one of the most healing moments of your life.
Let the energy of Aquarius and spontaneous Uranus wash over you and fill your life with exciting surprises.

Not only is Jupiter, the biggest planet in your solar system, it is also one of the most liked. The truth is, Jupiter is just so likeable and lucky that you can’t help but smile when you think of it!
If you imagine the planets as people, you can get a good idea of what Jupiter is like. Take a look at the schoolyard:
Mars is like that fiery kid everyone’s afraid of, but who’ll stand up against the bullies when everyone else is too scared to; Venus is the pretty, popular one with dozens of admirers; Neptune is the dreamy one who goes around with a smile on their face, quoting from books and spouting poetry; Mercury talks lots and acts on it; Uranus is the wacky-looking one who’s obsessed with gadgets; Pluto is the strange kid in the corner who wears all black and likes to talk about morbid things; Saturn is the stern and boring one who sends everyone up when they’re breaking the rules; and Jupiter?
Jupiter is that happy, smiley kid who gets along with everybody, is always happy to help, and brings a ray of sunshine wherever they go! Whether you’re the tough one, the popular one, the odd one, the stern one – you simply cannot help but like Jupiter.
This is why Jupiter is known as a benefic planet. It is known to bring good fortune and expansion. Wherever Jupiter is in your natal chart is often where you will experience the most fortune.

About Jupiter: The Lucky Planet
Jupiter is the largest planet, and so its effects on our lives are humongous. As the “God of the Gods,” he is the keeper of the big picture. In Greek mythology, Jupiter was aligned with Zeus, the king of gods.
Jupiter & Money
Jupiter rules gain and increase, which makes it an excellent ally in money matters.
Jupiter also gives clues as to where you are most likely to make your fortune. For example, if you have Jupiter in Pisces, then this combination means that wealth will come to you through showing benevolence and compassion to others.
If Jupiter is in your second house, then this is extra lucky for you, as this is the house concerning money matters.

Jupiter & Love
Since Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, it’s a wonderful companion to have when you’re trying to catch someone’s eye.
If Jupiter falls in your fourth or seventh house, you may experience benevolence and closeness in your relationships. The fourth house is the house of the home, and the seventh house is the house of relationships.
Jupiter thrives here because it can expand its love and guidance to others.
The Positions of Jupiter
Sign of Dignity: Sagittarius & Pisces
These are the signs ruled by Jupiter.
Jupiter bestows optimism, adventure, and the desire for freedom to Sagittarius, while Pisces gets the bulk of his kindness and benevolence.
All of these traits are shown in the Tarot card, Temperance, which represents Jupiter’s qualities at their best – the aiming of a higher ideal and merging differences as one.
Sign of Detriment: Gemini
Jupiter is detrimental in Gemini, which is opposite Sagittarius.
Jupiter can struggle in Gemini more than any other sign because Gemini keeps presenting Jupiter choices, and Jupiter struggles to find answers to match its ideals.
Sign of Exaltation: Cancer
Jupiter is exalted in Cancer and is very happy here!
In the sign of this nurturing crab, Jupiter can expand on all the watery goodness that Cancer possesses. Jupiter in Cancer makes one more loving, kind, and generous than they already are.
Sign of Fall: Capricorn
Jupiter is in fall in Capricorn, which is opposite Cancer. Jupiter struggles in Capricorn, which is ruled by strict Saturn.
Jupiter is all about freedom and expansion, while Saturn is about restriction and limitation. Therefore, in Capricorn, Jupiter’s influence is limited, and there can be difficult struggles. However, as the person grows older, they learn to work with Jupiter and find a balance between freedom and restriction.
Jupiter’s Major Planetary Aspects
During various times of the year, Jupiter opposes many planets, which can be challenging for Jupiter.
Opposition transits are usually challenging. When a planet opposes Jupiter, Jupiter’s natural energies are stifled. There may be trouble expressing oneself freely or experiencing restriction of some kind.
Jupiter direct is always a welcome event because it means Jupiter has come out of retrograde, which can slow down and delay its progress.
Jupiter direct frees Jupiter’s energies, and we can reflect on our wealth, abundance, and happiness. We may also experience freedom from negative feelings or emotions that have been weighing us down.
When Jupiter squares off to a planet, this is not always the best news. Jupiter’s negative qualities are triggered, such as extravagance and a lack of stability or focus.
During a Jupiter square transit, it’s important to maintain an inner balance, so you don’t get thrown off by the competing and conflicting energies.
Jupiter trine is a lovely aspect and enhances Jupiter’s natural qualities. When Jupiter trines with another planet, fortune and peace are usually guaranteed.
Often, it means finding peace and harmony during conflicting times.
Jupiter conjunct often promises good times as two planets merge to make one and bring out the best of each other.
Even where Jupiter is conjunct with a conflicting planet – like Saturn – the upheaval that is experienced shall pave the way to better things.
Jupiter sextile is not as powerful as Jupiter trine but is still a very good aspect to experience.
Sextile is about opening paths to growth, and as Jupiter is the planet of expansion and growth, when he sextiles another planet, then growth (especially of the spiritual kind) is on the way.
Jupiter retrograde indicates a powerful time of reflection and often brings about great change, especially in finance and relationships. Jupiter retrograde is not always easy but brings about the changes that are necessary to move forward.
This transit happens every year and lasts around four months. When Jupiter turns retrograde, we are encouraged to focus on money matters, spruce up our learning skills, and exercise moderation.
It’s important we don’t do things in excess, engage in destructive spending, narrow our ways of thinking (such as joining a cult or committing to one zealous frame of mind), and be lazy. These are all signs of Jupiter’s “dark side,” and we are susceptible to the shadow side of this planet during this time.
With Jupiter retrograde, there is a danger of being excessive, self-indulgent, and neglectful, especially of the physical body and money matters. We can become careless, and then, when Jupiter turns direct again, we think, “Oh no – what did I do?”

Jupiter return occurs every twelve years, and this is when Jupiter will return to the place he started in when you were born. In Chinese Astrology, Jupiter will return every year that your sign dominates.
So if you were born in the Year of the Rat, Jupiter would return in the next Year of the Rat, and the next one, and the next one …
There is a misconception that Jupiter is the planet of luck that Jupiter return automatically means it will be a lucky time. But as a matter of fact, sometimes Jupiter must shatter current foundations to make way for better ones.
If something during this twelve-year period is restricting you and hindering you from progress, Jupiter return will tear it down so that you can truly expand and become a better version of yourself. This is sometimes a painful process, but it is a necessary one.
Think of what you went through at age 12, then 24, then 36, and so forth. Significant changes and thinking patterns happen to break down a new structure and make way for a new one.
Jupiter through the Zodiac Signs
Jupiter in Aries
Jupiter in Aries means it is a time to take leadership and innovation seriously, but to bear in mind that leadership should not be driven by force. A person with Jupiter in Aries will attract the most fortune by showing benevolent leadership to others.
Jupiter in Taurus
Jupiter in Taurus means it is time to think of how your wealth and finances can help the world around you. A person with Jupiter in Taurus will attract the most fortune when displaying charitable actions towards others.

Look to Jupiter for Luck!
Jupiter is a benevolent planet, and everyone loves Jupiter!
The largest planet in our solar system also rules Thursday, so if you want a little bit of extra luck, schedule something for that day.
Remember, don’t get too cocky with Jupiter’s benevolent energy! One of the downsides to a benefic planet is that the individual can become careless or lazy, failing to harness their gifts and talents to the fullest extent because things just happen easily for them.
We see this with people who have a Grand Trine, which, while highly fortunate, can backfire when the individual allows themselves to become lazy and indulgent.
Next time you look up at the sky, say a bit thank you to our friend Jupiter.
His influence truly is one of benevolence, compassion, and higher thinking. We can learn a lot from him. Wherever Jupiter falls in your birth chart, focus on this area, and if you need help, just ask him!

Beautiful November rising, the powerful “11” vibration of self-mastery, descending into the final act of 2020 and the restoration of our soul foundation.
This month brings us into core alignment through the mirror of oneness, representing the final stages of alchemical transformation. Mystical portals open up during the month that possesses ancient powers and streams forth energy for personal growth and success.
November is a month of major transition when the Northern Hemisphere shifts from fall to winter. A reminder that as the leaves fall, new seeds become buried in the ground during the cold winter, rooting and preparing to bloom anew in spring.
The month starts on a powerful note a day after the dynamic Taurus Full Moon and Sun Uranus opposition. We’ve been experiencing rapid changes as we fully ground in the new Earth paradigm. We had to dig ourselves so deep this year in healing, so we could root securely in Mother Earth and allow our authentic self to rise through the darkness.
All souls on the planet are undergoing an amazing transformation as we awaken to our authentic state and shed the past’s limitations. Shifting into the final phase of 2020, it’s important to breathe, ground, and relax. We are clearing lifetimes of karma and entering into a new cycle aligned with our soul’s purpose.
Many of us have been training for this shift, and now here we are, leaving our energetic mark on this physical realm, grounding, and restoring the template of unity consciousness.
Let’s explore some of the amazing transits creating energetic waves in November.
Keep track of the stars and all of the upcoming transits with our free November 2020 astrology calendar!
November 1, 2020
Venus in Libra Oppose Chiron in Aries, Healing the Wounded Heart
This aspect brings our attention to deeply embedded wounds with our decision-making process and evaluating function, along with wounds within our interpersonal relationships. With all the shadow work that was required this October, Venus, and Chiron connect for you to get down to the bottom of your heart, clear the debris, and ask yourself these questions:
Do you love yourself, wholeheartedly? Flaws and all? Are you willing to accept the shadows, not as a driver of fear or a song of pain, but as the key to your success and victory?
The energy suggests that underlying insecurities are present and play a major role in your self-doubt and self-worth. Allow the fire of purification from Chiron in Aries to burn through old templates of self-doubt and restore your inner faith.
November 3, 2020
Mercury Direct (Libra 25 Degrees)
The revealer of shadows and truth, Mercury stations direct in Libra but remains in his shadow for a two week period. During this time, expect for mental fog to slowly subside, granting clarity and relief. Once Mercury fully regulates his orbit, you will begin to feel an increase of energy and a spike in your intuition.
Don’t jump to conclusions or make fast decisions. Continue to use this time as a period for inner reflection and attunement. Mercury moves back to Scorpio on November 10th. Remember that Mercury stations retrograde at least 3 times a year. He is the innermost planet, the function of our lower mind.
Mercury retrogrades are an amazing period for re-attunement, recharging, and reflecting.
November 9, 2020
Venus in Libra Opposite Mars in Aries, Building the Bridge Between the Poles
After meeting with Chiron burning through the calcified walls of our heart, Venus now has a chance to meet with Mars. Mars is currently in retrograde, helping the divine masculine reclaim their righteous power and allowing the feminine to ground their inner fire.
This aspect speaks highly to the healing of soul mate and twin flame unions and the internal feminine and masculine. These two planets play a significant role in our physical archetypes and govern the ego’s relationship to our external world. Both Venus and Mars seek to build the bridge to unify the poles between men and women worldwide.
Once you can rise above gender duality and the material world, you can integrate the amazing functions of Mars and Venus to push you forward. This energy also suggests finding healthy outlets to work through anger and impulses that impose bad financial decisions and relationship problems.
November 12, 2020
Final Jupiter-Pluto Conjunction (22 Degrees Capricorn)
Two heavy hitters of this year’s grand conjunctions meet up for their final act of 2020, before the Aquarian conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn on December 21st, 2020. As we expand our limitless nature, Jupiter shines a light on Pluto’s shadows invoking transformation and expansion at the highest levels.
It’s important to move beyond the misuse of power, the greed for wealth, and the thirst for sexuality. Review the areas in which you over-expand your energy or create material obsessions. The key to this aspect is understanding that true power is source, and you are always connected to source.
When channeled for good, that power will fuel your life in positive directions. Finding a balance between the material and the spiritual world is needed. Allow the rays of Pluto to transform your inner truth and heal the dark side of the subconscious.
November 13, 2020
Venus in Libra trine Soul Star Chakra (North Node in Gemini), Sextile Earth Star Chakra (South Node in Sagittarius), Soul Opportunities
During this time, Venus gives our hearts a boost by grounding it in the future and helping us shed the past mistruths. Trine the North node. This is a great aspect of creativity, arts, and attracting all things aligned with your highest purpose.
This energy also reveals that relationships pave the path towards karmic lessons and fulfillment once learned. Stop singing songs of the past and turn on the melodies of your future.
Energy is all around us. Take the quiz: Do You Have Yin or Yang Energy?
November 14, 2020
Mars Direct (15 Degrees Aries)
Mars has journeyed a significant path this year, reclaiming his righteous power and initiating a brand new 32-year cycle. Although he remains in his shadow until the end of the year, we will gain the ability to overcome any roadblocks and harsh cardinal T-squares experienced during his retrograde when stationing direct.
Continue to ground your inner fire and use this time to fuel new goals and projects.
November 15, 2020
Scorpio New Moon (23 Degrees Scorpio), Phoenix Rising
November’s New Moon in the alluring and sensual sign of Scorpio is the dynamic transformation of “what was” to “what truly is” as we learn the art of letting go.
There is something powerful about the space we gain when we let go and release the space, which allows us to bring more light in and is ripe for potential and new possibilities. This New Moon is about healing from past conditioning influences and emotional trauma that blocks your intuitive nature.
This energy suggests a need to make peace with your emotions and explore the deeper side of self. Scorpio energy invokes our highest vision’s wisdom and the place where the soul’s light may rise. We have been through an impactful year that has helped the collective consciousness evolve.
It is time to let your power shine through, do not be afraid of who you are. There is power in every piece of you!
November 21, 2020
Venus in Scorpio (2:22 PM ET), the Awakened Heart
The doorway to our awakened state and higher consciousness opens as Venus travels into the underworld of Scorpio. We must release fears and pain trapped around our heart space, restoring our sacred heart vibrations and infinite connection to source.
One way to release those fears is to review the areas in which you obsess over intimacy and power in your relationships. Find the root cause of needing to be in control or the tendency to manipulate others. Check the ego’s defense mechanisms that cloud your judgment and cause suspicion.
This transit has the ability to transform your heart into its awakened state, bringing forth new channels of abundance and wisdom. Let the energy awaken your sensual side and let your magic soar to new heights.
Sun in Sagittarius (9:40 PM ET)
The Sun shifts into the Mutable sign of Sagittarius activating higher wisdom and a final opportunity to finish out the game right. The physical wisdom provided by Sagittarius gives us the ability to release our attachments and move beyond this realm.
Sagittarius is the Fire sign that transmutes the previous cycle and grants us the energy to start again. This season sparks a wonderful peak of abundance and optimism.
November 30, 2020
Gemini Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (8 Degrees), Confronting Self
Before we say goodbye to 2020, we have to kick off eclipse season with Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, in the Mutable sign of Gemini, activating our mental body and diamond self. Gemini represents the cosmic light that beams, revealing all that opposes duality. It brings our attention to the conscious light of the relationship between spirit and matter.
This Full Moon is about making peace with our lower self and healing our ego, bringing the mind-body connection into play as we ground our minds in our hearts. This cycle awakens Universal vision and marks the ascension point where the heart reveals the truth.
November offers us dynamic shifts that will help us gain the power and strength to close out the year on a higher vibration. It is a busy month, and while things are moving quickly, it is important to remain grounded in your actions, curb your impulses, and bring balance to your inner fire.
Everything we do from here on out sets the wave for our soul’s expression to come forth in 2021.
Remember that Magic is Flowing Through You
This season is a time of alignment, miracles, synchronicities, and an opportunity to finally shed lifetimes of baggage and karmic debris. We have started so many brand new cycles this year, and as we finish November and December, we will finally see our hard work and dedication pay off.
Follow these essential tips for November to capitalize on this new energy:
- Practice breathwork
- Ground and hydrate
- Sing and dance
- Be present and surrender to hear divine communication from higher realms.
Happy November rising!

The Full Moon in Taurus on Saturday not only falls on Halloween, but it is also a Blue Moon, which means it’s the second Full Moon in a month. This event is extremely rare! The last time we had a Full Moon on Halloween was in 2001, and the last time a Blue Moon occurred on Halloween was in 1944.

This week we also have both Mercury (which is still retrograde) and Venus moving into Libra on Tuesday. When the planet of love and the planet of communication is in this Air sign, expect socializing and friendships to blossom.
We may feel inspired to connect more with friends from way back with Mercury retrograde to rekindle those broken bonds.
How to Make the Most of this Week
Taurus takes us out of our minds and brings us back to our body, in the here and now. Let Saturday’s Full Moon help you find all the things we share in common to give the divisiveness a break.

How many times have you heard someone say, “Make a wish, it′s 11:11?”
If you’ve ever wondered why this might be, or what more this mysterious sign may be trying to communicate with you, you’re not alone. As auspicious as it is curious, the real truth behind 11:11 can be referenced to multiple meanings and different kinds of signals from the Universe.
Because of this, breaking down what this special set of numbers is trying to share can seem like a daunting task at first. After all, if there are so many different messages, it could be trying to communicate. How are you meant to know which one is for you?
Rather than have 11:11 approach us, we’re going to be approaching 11:11 first today. Read on to discover more about what 11:11 really means — and how you can use it to your advantage as well!
What Does Seeing 11:11 Mean?
First thing’s first: if you’ve been seeing this mysterious number everywhere and have been desperately trying to crack its code — breathe a sigh of relief before stressing over what it means! This is because, at its core, repeating numbers like 11:11 are a distinctly positive sign no matter what the circumstances are.
That said, there are still various meanings attributed to 11:11, and you may have to put in some elbow grease to connect with your intuition in understanding, which makes sense for you given your present situation.
Theories Behind 11:11
When you notice that you see the numbers 11:11 on your clock, or in other areas of your day to day life, many times you′ll get a little twinge of feeling something, but you just aren′t sure what. But with practice and a little more knowledge on 11:11 in your back pocket, you’ll be a pro at decoding it in no time!
1. It Ties to Numerology
In numerology, 11 is known as a master number.
The number 11 represents intuition and trusting your instincts. It also is considered to be a number having to do with duality, the mixing of our realm, and the next. For example, in practice, when someone has a life path number of 11, they are considered highly intuitive beings.
So, to see 11:11 can be a callback to this numerological understanding of the number, especially since its power is now doubled!
2. Angel Numbers
It is common lore that the sequence 111 or 1111 can be a sign that your angels or spirit guides are near. Perhaps they are trying to get your attention, making you more aware of the things going on around you (or from within you). Or perhaps you’ve been in need of assistance and have been looking for a sign yourself.
This also means your angels are paying close attention to the things you are doing and the things you need most in life at the moment. You may be at a crossroads or at a time of spiritual significance in your life’s journey, so with the sign of 11:11, you may be being called to look within for more spiritual or esoteric wisdom and knowledge.
3. It’s a Message from the Universe
Ultimately, you do not need a semi-colon or colon or any particular format to receive a message from the Universe through 11:11. It could be in a phone number with the last four digits being 1111, a store receipt, a gas tank number, a mileage number, or a house address that catches your attention for “no reason.”
What does it mean?
If not a sign from the angels or a strictly numerological tie, the sign 11:11 could be a nudge, message, or reminder from the Universe trying to pull your attention to something. However, the “something” that you’re being called to is likely to be something you and you alone can really understand.
On an intuitive and soul level, 11:11 speaks to you to remind you of something that deep within, you already know.
How to Make the Most of 11:11
Looking for more clarity and considerations on 11:11? Here are 11 things that you can do when you see the 11:11 phenomenon:
1. Stop, Look, & Listen
Abraham Hicks, the author of the Law of Attraction, says that when you see 11:11, it’s the Universe’s way of “knocking you out” to show you physical evidence of your alignment.
In other words, it’s the Universe’s way of saying, keep going, you’re doing everything exactly right, and the blessings are coming. So, when you see this little symbol, stop and appreciate it for what it is, and have faith that you’re on the right track.
2. Make a Wish!
11:11 wishes are very popular and common, and they do come true. Of course, you don’t have to wait until 11:11 to make a wish each day, but there is certainly strength in the process of utilizing the power of numbers that we know to hold spiritual significance.
In the beginning, the best way to try out the process is to be realistic and ask for little things. This way, you’ll gain more faith in the process as you watch the smaller things come true first. Similar to the law of attraction, the more gratitude you show for this gift of unconditional love that comes your way, the more often it will happen to you.
3. Write it Down
Start keeping track of when and where you see occurrences of 11:11!
If anything really awesome also happens that day, write it down. You won’t see the pattern for a while, but in a few months, take a look and see if you can discover for yourself what is trying to be communicated to you through this symbol.
Let’s say you get a letter or a text from someone you are crazy about every day that you see 11:11.
That is not a coincidence, but at the moment, it can be hard to see what exactly the “random” number is trying to tell you. With time, you will begin to understand what it means to you specifically, especially if you keep track over prolonged periods of time.
Remember though. This number is about expanding and spiritual growth, so it may not mean just one thing forever. Be open to the process of change, and use your log or journal to simply take note and keep track of that progress as needed.
4. Follow Your Intuition
No matter what you are doing right then and there, listen to your intuition at the time of seeing 11:11. Take a moment of pause, and try to take notice of the first things that came to mind as you stumbled upon the sign of 11:11.
If you have already forgotten or are struggling to decipher an intuitive knowing versus a typical inner dialogue, take a step back and wait it out rather than overthinking it.
You may spot another 11:11 soon that will guide you to the right place, so don’t stress over it!
5. Consider Your Twin Flame
Beyond the lore of angels and spirit guides, there is also the concept of twin flames that is often associated with 11:11.
Connecting twin flames is not the only purpose of 11:11 in astrology or numerology today, but the tie still exists if you feel the call in this direction. While not everyone will resonate with the concept of a twin flame and experiences may vary, it is highly likely that if you’re already acquainted with a twin flame, the sign of 11:11 may hold a special kind of significance for you.
It is perhaps a sign that your twin is out there sending you a message, or one from the Universe that you’ll be meeting them soon.

6. Embrace Leadership
Many leaders throughout history have 11 as their Life Path number (for example, Barack Obama).
In numerology, all those born with the Life Path number 11 are seen as intuitive leaders that are born with a direct purpose on earth. So when you see 11:11 appear, embrace your inner leader and consider how you can take charge of your life.
What is your first hunch when you see it? Follow it and do so with a spirit of leadership.
Especially if you’re balking at decoding what your intuition is trying to tell you, meditation is a very powerful tool if you have been given the gift of 11:11 in your day in some way. If it happens and you have the time, stop there to just close your eyes and ask the angels, Universe, or just your own inner eye to show you what it is that you need to know about that sign, at that moment, on that day.
There is always a message when 11:11 appears, and meditation is the best way to open your own channels up to receive that message.
8. Ask for What You Need
Asking questions can be a good way to use 11:11 to aid in your personal growth and spark a dialogue with yourself.
Do you really want to connect with your twin flame? Do you really want to make a life-changing job decision? Ask for signs that you are on the right path and seek out the signs that you will receive.
This works best when it becomes part of daily practice. Once you start looking for and asking the right questions, you can start to seek answers.
9. Plan Ahead
If feeling rooted and grounded in the present moment doesn’t feel like the right move, perhaps it’s time to write up that plan for the future that has been put off. Whip out a pen and paper, think up a to-do list, and write out what intuitively feels like the best move for your next journey.
Whether it’s for a project, a trip, or something else that is close to your heart’s desire, the fortuitous collision of 11:11 and your future can make some magic for the road ahead.
10. Cultivate Friendships
The 11th house in astrology revolves around friendship and relationships, so when you see 11:11, it might be the Universe telling you to take some time to let those you love know how much you care.
Sometimes we don’t always realize how much we need a shoulder to lean on until we are reminded of how helpful our interpersonal connections can be, so the Universe sends this as a helpful nudge. Alternatively, you may not be the one who is in need at the moment, but someone else in your personal circle. Either way, it’s time to reach out!

11. Embrace the Moment
If nothing else, when 11:11 appears, embrace it as a moment of possibilities. We don’t know exactly what wishes it grants. We just know all of the clues that it provides. That’s why it’s called a phenomenon. When it happens to you, don’t question it. Would you question a rainbow if it arrived?
How Will You Use 11:11?
There is ultimately an abundance of ways to approach witnessing 11:11, as well as a variety of ways that you can interpret the message or call. At the end of the day, it will be as unique of a signal as your connection to your intuition is — extremely personal and special!
However, using some of these tried and true methods of approach, or discovering alternative ways to interpret 11:11, can all contribute to furthering your understanding of this unique little set of numbers. Try them out and see if you unlock a new meaning of 11:11 at any time!

Imagine the feeling you might get holding a sparkling, luminescent piece of shimmering labradorite in your hand, or how you feel beholding the beauty and shine of a jagged but enchanting chunk of clear quartz, shining like a diamond.
There’s a good chance that you’ve heard of the many healing benefits of working with crystals – that is unless you’ve been living under a rock! Crystals are magical, mystical tools that work to heal emotions, clear mental fog, physical ailments, and so much more.
These mesmerizing crystals and gemstones are given to us by nature, dazzling in their inherently healing qualities and natural beauty.
Whether you’re working with a bright, yellow chunk of citrine to attract prosperity and abundance, or you’re carrying a healing piece of pink rose quartz in your left pocket to promote unconditional self-love, crystals and gemstones are the ultimate tools to add to your esoteric routine.
While crystals are known for cleansing and balancing energy, it’s important to remember that many crystals also absorb energy – and therefore need to be cleansed of any negativity they may have soaked up from the environment around them. If you want your healing crystals to be at their most powerful and potent, it’s crucial that you cleanse them regularly.
Crystals need your special care and attention for them to work most effectively.
There are myriad ways to cleanse your crystals, and the method you choose is really up to you! Clearing your crystals by the light of the Moon is one popular method, allowing the crystals to take in the healing light of our lunar guide.
You place the crystals you’d like to cleanse in a glass or a jar of purified water. (Some crystals dissolve in water, so do your research beforehand to make sure you don’t accidentally damage your stones.) Leave the crystal somewhere where it will rest directly under the light of the Moon and leave them there overnight. Voila! Your crystals are now cleansed and more powerful than ever.
Let’s dive in to learn more about what crystal cleansing is, when and why you should cleanse them, and how!

What is Crystal Cleansing?
Crystal cleansing is the activity of removing stagnant or negative energy from your crystals. It can be done in many ways – from cleaning with purified water to the Moon’s light and many ways in between.
One of the most popular crystal cleansing methods is bathing your crystals in purified water; however, it’s important to note that some crystals are damaged by water and should be cleansed in another way. Crystals to avoid exposing to liquids include:
- Red coral
- Fire opal
It may be easier to remember that crystals ending with “ite” should not be exposed to water. You can also do a quick internet search before cleansing your stones with water to make sure those stones are safe.

Why Should You Cleanse Your Crystals?
One of the ways that crystals work to send healing energy surging throughout our body is by absorbing negativity into their own being. Certain stones, like jet or black obsidian, absorb more energy than others, meaning that they can become muddied with negativity over time.
Crystal cleansing is the process of clearing this energy from your stones, leaving them cleansed, refreshed, and more effective at healing. Further, the more you work with and cleanse your crystals, the deeper and more harmonious your relationship with your stones becomes.
Clearing the energy from your crystals allows them to heal your own energy more efficiently.
When Should You Cleanse Your Crystals?
This question is a bit more subjective, as you can really create your own schedule for cleansing your stones. One factor is how often you use them, as the more you work with your crystals, the more frequently they’ll need to be cleared of negative energy.
If you’re making sure to cleanse your stones at least once a month, that will make sure that they’re working efficiently. This is also a perfect rule of thumb if you plan on cleansing your crystals with moonlight, as setting them out under the Full Moon each month infuses them with the wisdom and healing energy of the Moon.
On the other hand, you can also cleanse your stones anytime you feel they aren’t as bright and healing as they usually are. If you pick up a stone and it feels heavier or duller than usual, try giving it a rinse or running it through the smoke of burning sage or Palo Santo.
And if you’re short on time, there are plenty of ways to quickly cleanse your crystals in a pinch. Here are seven ways to cleanse your stones in less than 10 minutes!

Fire is another natural element with cleansing properties, although you won’t be touching your stones to the flame. This method simply involves lighting your favorite candle and waving the stones that need to be cleared over the flickering flame’s heat.
Most stones are rather resilient, and passing them over a lit candle will not harm them.
This method infuses your stones with positive or neutral energy, just as they should be. However, like water cleansing, this method is not the best for fragile stones like cerussite.
A Quick Rinse
Water is a remarkably effective cleansing agent for stones, as it washes away any negative energy that they have acquired during your work with them. As long as you’re paying attention to which stones should not be cleansed with water, a quick rinse is efficient and easy to do.
If you happen to live near a natural body of water, you can run your crystals through the healing waters. Or, you can simply pour purified water over your crystals or allow them to soak in a bowl of it. Each crystal should be cleansed for approximately one minute.
Smudging the Stones
Have you ever allowed the smoke of burning sage or Palo Santo to cleanse the negative energy from your body? If so, did you know that this method can also cleanse stagnant or gloomy energy from your crystals as well?
Both sage and Palo Santo are ancient, mysterious cleansing tools that just happen to smell delightful. Try lighting your favorite smudging tool, letting the smoke rise, and passing your stones through that healing smoke the next time you need a quick crystal to cleanse!
Sea Salt Soaks
Sea salt, especially the Pink Himalayan variety, is a wonderful medium for cleansing your stones, and it can be done in as little as 10 minutes. Simply fill a jar or a glass with a bit of your sea salt, place your crystals over the salt, and then add another layer on top of them. Allow them to soak in the healing energy for 10 minutes, take them out, and sweep off any residual salt.
You can also place sea salt on a plate or a display case for your crystals and set them on top. Not only does this look like beautiful, original décor for your home, but it will work to keep your crystals cleansed at all times.

If it’s a rather sunny day outside, you can utilize the restorative powers of the Sun to clarify your favorite stones. Place your stones on a mat or a tray where they have enough space to breathe and keep their energies separated.
Then, take your tray outside and place it directly under the sunlight. Wait 10 minutes and remove them for purified crystals that will work stronger than ever before! This is also an excellent time for you to soak up some sunshine for yourself.
Sound is another great way to cleanse certain energies and raise vibrations. You could try using a singing bowl to quickly cleanse and heal your crystals with sound, or you could even use your own voice as a restorative tool.
Sacred chanting can help you program your crystals and set your intentions for healing within them.
Om is a chant that is often referred to as the hymn of the Universe and is considered the “ultimate vibration,” as it is said to contain every vibration that has existed or will ever exist in the future. Try holding the crystal you need to cleanse in your right hand (which is the energetically giving side of your body) and chanting “om” for at least one minute to infuse your crystals with healing energy and raise their vibrations.
Crystals Healing Crystals
There are certain crystals that are so powerful that they never need to be cleansed, and they can even work to cleanse other crystals around them. Among these super-charged crystals are citrine, selenite, quartz, carnelian, kyanite, and amethyst.
Simply place the crystal that needs to be cleansed on a tray with one of the stones mentioned above for 10 minutes to refresh and recharge them!
