Om Nilapatakayai Namaha

Sun: 11 Gemini
Moon: 15 Libra, 124 degrees from Sun, First Quarter Moon
Inner Moon: days 8-14, follicular/proliferation

Moon Vibes:

The warrior experiencing tension between self and group. Concerned with justice in the organizations and groups. Relates with vernal equinox and Ostara/Easter. In tantra yoga, this is the descending in-breath (prana-vayu) from third-eye to the soft palate, relates with midday and the element is fire. In the hero’s journey, we are taking inspired action, feeling tension and resistance in group efforts, wanting to differentiate. Feeling strong and empowered to cross initiation threshold. Blazing new trails which could become new systems for society. First quarter Moon relates with follicular and proliferation hormones, building up of estrogen, uterine walls thickening, eggs maturing. This phase of lunar cycle can be powerful and exciting. Use it for courtship, dates night, seduction, and rituals that focus on building and growing. Use foods that nurture and support. Warm and comforting foods like root vegetables and curry spices.


Libra relates with kidney, ureter, urinary bladder, veins, skin. A good plant medicine for this is burdock. Not only good for cleansing the organs which reflects through healthy skin, the leaves can be used in love spells. Libras domain. To make an overnight infusion:

  • 2 tbls dried burdock root.
  • Boil in a quart of water.
  • Cool a little then pour mixture into a glass jar and put lid on.
  • Let sit overnight.
  • Drink this from now until June new Moon.

If you have fresh burdock root, you don’t need to boil it. Just pour hot water into the jar over the burdock roots and set overnight.

Moon in libra:

Moon in relationship interested Libra all day. In harmonious aspect with Venus, our friendships and romantic feelings take center stage in the heart.



Astrology info to consider:

Pluto/Jupiter retrograde coming back to exact for a second wave of 3 meetings. First was April 5, next is June 30 and last is November 12, 2020. Everything that occurred last time Pluto was in Capricorn, 1762-1778, is up for composting and regeneration.

Mercury the magician communicator is squaring up with Chiron, the Alchemist.

Venus and Mars at 90° angle puts an irriatation on feminine/masculine forces. Irritation leads to integration when you sit with it. Listen and act according to your highest self, not your habits or patterns.



Libra turns I into We every time.  Libra understands the wisdom of our interconnectedness and rules over our longing for justice, fairness and equality.  Tonight dedicate you ritual to another person or a group of people.  Let your intention be for them to experience justice, peace and harmony in their life.

Create sacred space at your altar, breathing into your body, call in the harmonious and co-creative energy of Libra, ask your spirit guides to support you in your practice.

  • Breath into your current space and time, notice how you are feeling and welcome this feeling as your own, as you would welcome a dear friend with acceptance and respect. Take time to tend to your current state by journaling, stretching, and being still. Recognize the beauty that it is to feel anything at all, feelings are a gift of our human experience, realize that honoring your feeling creates a condition of harmony within.
  • Now that you have given time for yourself to arrive in harmony and beauty in this present moment, shift your attention to someone else or a group of people you are in relationship with. This may be a person/people who you are in close relation with or a person/people that you do not know very well, we are all connected and in relationship to some degree.
  • Center your awareness in your heart space and begin to expand your intentions from here.  Send well wishes. Say silently or out loud… “May you experience harmony, peace and beauty.”  If you are a visual person you can imagine these wishes traveling in the form of light to the person(s) you intend to receive them. Continue sending this note of healing intention outwards until you feel complete.
  • Notice your expanded field of harmony and beauty, acknowledge that the state of your being effects those around you as the state of those around you effects you.  When we all show up for one another, we all benefit beautifully.
  • Take time to reflect in your journal.
  • Also see this Loving-Kindness Meditation which is one of my favorites if you would enjoy a guided meditation tonight.

Conclude in Gratitude.
