The Moon is Void of Course today (January 31) at 11:45 AM (Eastern) until January 31 at 10:44 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Aquarius.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 31) at 11:45 AM (Eastern) until January 31 at 10:44 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Aquarius. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course.  For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
When the Moon is in Aquarius, you will feel an interest in new things, far out things. There is a sense of emotional detachment during this time. There is more of a focus on ideas and intellectual pursuits than on emotional connection.
You may feel a bit more blunt during this period and other people may be more blunt with you. This could actually cause tenseness in your relationships, so be aware of that. For most people during this time, friends become more important than family. More focus might be placed on people in general as opposed to individuals (social consciousness).
This is a good time for people working with technology, with electricity and electronics and other types of science. New and original (even unconventional) ideas can best be fostered during this time. This is a very good time to do things to strengthen your cardio-vascular system. Be careful with your joints, veins and eyes. Be careful when handling electrical appliances. This is an excellent time for meeting with groups or in clubs and a wonderful time to contemplate (but not decide on) a new adventure in your life.
And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life. We all have free will in all the choices that we make.  I like to look at it as good information that can be transcended.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 29) at 11:47 AM (Eastern) until 11:33 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Capricorn.

When the Moon is in Capricorn it’s a time of being dependable and following through. People will be working harder and it’s a wonderful time to really utilize your concentration and your focus.
Capricorn is continually striving for financial security, so making efforts along that line will be very good. People may seem a little more stern during this time (as they are focused on their own concentrated efforts). But within the family, this is a time that brings out familial connection. It’s a very good time to begin construction or to sell real estate and it’s a very good time for communication with influential people. Be careful of your knees during this time. Also, be careful to not expose yourself to colds. This is also a time when skin ailments can flare up. It is a very good time to do anything that involves really utilizing your will power.

When the Moon is in Sagittarius it is a time of enthusiasm, idealism, generosity and it ignites desires for adventure and travel. People are generally very expansive during this time and it’s also a time that brings out our desire for independence. For work, this is a wonderful time for expansion, especially if your work has to do with studying, teaching, anything having to do with travel or foreign lands. It’s also a wonderful time to attend workshops or seminars or for any type of outdoor recreation.
Sagittarius rules the lungs, so be very careful of your lungs and respiratory system. This is not a good time for medical procedures that involve the lungs, but a wonderful time to use breath as a healing practice. It’s also not a good time to start building or construction. Also be on the look-out for people being untruthful with you (including stealing from you) and be careful to not over-indulge in gambling. If you are feeling restless, just take a breath and remember, “this too shall pass”.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 25) from 8:55 AM (Eastern) to 10:13 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Scorpio.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 25) from 8:55 AM (Eastern) to 10:13 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Scorpio. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course.  For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
The Moon in Scorpio brings out deep emotions and also connects with our intuition and the unknown. It is a very good time to activate deeper levels of your consciousness and to access deeper levels of your intuition.
Scorpio is a very sexual sign, so it is a good idea to avoid sexual entanglements, but it can be a wonderful time to connect on a deeper level emotionally with your Beloved. Because emotions can be so strong and intense during this time, it’s a good idea to avoid family gatherings, especially where they may turn volatile. In work, Scorpio is a wonderful time for deep focus and concentration of the mind. It’s a very auspicious time for psychologists and psychiatrists and for people who work with the sciences, because of this focus on concentration of the mind. Be very careful of over-indulging in food or alcohol and be mindful of caring for the sexual organs, endocrine system and the large intestine. Best to avoid surgery of these areas during this time. But remember that Scorpio is a very sexy sign, so have some fun!

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 22) from 10:50 PM (Eastern) until January 23 at 4:43 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Libra.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 22) from 10:50 PM (Eastern) until January 23 at 4:43 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Libra. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
When the Moon is in Libra, we have a deep desire for harmony and balance and to be in right relationship. This includes all relationships – love, work, friends, family. It is usually a good time for tact and impartiality, as people are seeing both sides of an issue. We have a real desire to connect and to be in partnership. It is a good time to work out existing problems.
This can be a time when emotions are expressed very freely. This is typically a time when it is very difficult to make decisions, so just decide not to make any decisions, especially because the Moon is Void of Course!
Now is a very auspicious time for work, especially in those areas where teamwork is required. This period is especially auspicious for those in the artistic fields because this is a time of heightened sensitivity to beauty and aesthetics.
It is also a good time for the work of psychologists and attorneys because of the craving for balance and justice.
Be very careful with your spine, waist, adrenal glands and the kidneys and it’s a good time to avoid surgery in those areas.
Enjoy this time of balance!

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 20) at 3:55 PM (Eastern) until January 21 at 7:43 AM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Virgo.

The Moon is Void of Course today from and the Moon is in Virgo. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
Virgo is very detailed oriented and is the sign that is the most critical and judgmental. But Virgos are also very helpful and very intelligent, so utilize this energy wisely. It is a wonderful time for making lists and organizing things. It’s an especially good time for cleaning anything out. Clear your home of anything no longer needed or useful, clean your mind of any thoughts or beliefs that are no longer serving you and clean your body so that it feels the way you want it to feel. Virgo rules the intestines, so it’s a wonderful time for cleansing.
It is a good time to really look at and reflect on the details of your life.  It is not a good time to discuss your performance or merits in your job or in a relationship, as people will tend to be more critical during this time. This is a time when you will feel more of a desire to help other people and other people will feel a desire to help you. What a win-win!

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 18) at 3:51 AM (Eastern) until January 18 at 8:23 PM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Leo.

The Moon is Void of Course today from  and the Moon is in Leo. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here.
Leo is the lion and during this time we will feel strong and confident. We will have a desire to feel beautiful and to be perceived as beautiful. Our inner child is connected with the Leo Moon, so it is a wonderful time to love ourselves a little more deeply.
This is a time when creativity will really flow, so do everything you can to nurture that. A wonderful time not only for creative pursuits, but creative thinking. Leo (and the Sun) always want to be the center of attention, so resist the misconception that “everything revolves around you”. It’s a wonderful time for parties and celebrations. Be especially careful of your heart and spine at this time.
And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life.

Weather-related stress is real and can tax your body – Supplements can help

Isn’t it interesting how you keep busy and stay active until 9 or 10 p.m., even having dinner that late, in the summer months? But in the dead of winter, you put on your comfy pants, eat something hearty and hunker down in bed by 8 p.m.?
While we have already discussed ways to embrace a decline in mood and motivation, it might help to understand what really happens to your body in winter and how colder, darker days can affect your system.
There is science behind why it is more difficult to practice positive thinking and get regular exercise during January and February, especially if you live near a large body of water that creates cloud cover or produces lake effect snow. The same can be said if you live near or north of the 45th parallel. Known as the halfway point between the Equator and the North Pole, at this latitude, most people experience full-blown winter with 15 or more hours of darkness, temperatures below freezing and regular snowfall.
Prolonged lack of sun and cold weather can tax your body like any other source of energy-depleting stress, similar to fighting with your kids, being at odds with your spouse or feeling overwhelmed at work.
It unknowingly strains your mood as well as your metabolism. As your energy dips, your desire for food increases because your body is trying to replenish it. Plus, the cold shifts your body into “hibernation metabolism” and triggers cravings for sweets and carbs.
Darkness also causes your body’s internal clock to get out of whack by throwing off melatonin production. Melatonin is the primary hormone that governs your body’s sleep cycle. Melatonin works at night, synchronizing repair and a restful night’s sleep. It helps restore your energy for the next day. When melatonin levels or its production go haywire, it can lead to sleepless nights and cause you to feel like you are always dragging.
People also underestimate the power of the sun! It produces vitamin D and photon energy – both critical to health and wellbeing. The sun interacts with skin to make vitamin D, a nutrient severely deficient in the winter in northern climates.
There is a good bit of evidence that vitamin D deficiency plays a role in seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which can contribute to fatigue, food cravings, and other symptoms of depression. Vitamin D also is vital to calcium metabolism, proper immunity, good mood, and breast and prostate health.
In addition, the sun also produces photon energy, which is stored in cell membranes. Your ability to store and use this energy is based on the amount of omega 3 fatty acids in your diet. Omega 3 is often lacking in Western diets and can lead to the winter blues. Several studies also have confirmed that people with higher blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids are less likely to report symptoms of depression.
Rather than run to the doctor for a prescription for antidepressants, or try to will your lethargy away, there are some ways to counteract the season’s drain on your energy with supplements:
• Melatonin is one of the best cures for regulating your sleep and maintaining melatonin levels
• Vitamin D3 can be consumed in the form of dietary supplements in locales where the sun is sparse
• B vitamins also can help control stress and depression
• Essential fatty acids like omega 3, daily DHA or Leptinal can help get photon energy to your brain
• Squalene also delivers oxygen and photon energy, reduces dry or cracking skin, and helps with circulation, especially people who feel cold in their extremities
• Regular exercise, especially weight training, helps build muscle, boost your resting metabolism and balance hormones
Consult a health food store or nutritionist for other herbal remedies, proper dosages and when is the best time to take supplements. Many vitamins help your body make and use energy and deliver lacking nutrients vital to brain function, mood, motivation and metabolism. Herbs and nutrients can make a difference!
But maybe you need more than that, like an escape from the chaos and confusion – or persistent cloudiness! Sedona Soul Adventures exists to help people like you learn how to access the wisdom of your own body and soul. Master teachers and healers will lead you to the heart of your own life and soul so you can see the sun again.

The Moon is Void of Course today (January 15) at 11:52 PM (Eastern) until January 16 at 8:00 AM (Eastern) and the Moon is in Cancer.

The Moon is Void of Course today from and the Moon is in Cancer. Don’t make any important decisions while the Moon is Void of Course. For a deeper explanation of Moon Void of Course Click Here. Cancer has to do with emotions and our homes and our families. The Moon’s home base is Cancer, so the Moon feels the most at home here.
When the Moon is in Cancer it is a time of deep emotions. It’s a time when we can connect with people on a deeper level, especially with our families. It is a time when we yearn for peace and serenity. It is not a good time for change, as we will resist any kind of change during this period and we will be more attune with things that are familiar (notice that the root of the word “family” is “familiar”).
Anything you would want to do around the home now would be favored, especially making your home a more comfortable place. Also anything having to do with helping your family or nurturing your family is very beneficial. Family get-togethers can be very harmonious during this time, especially if “neediness” is not involved. People can tend to be a little more secretive and moody during this time and also overly-protective.
This can be a very healing time and a wonderful time to really connect with our deepest desires and what it is that drives us. Be very careful during this time about your stomach, gall bladder, and lymphatic system. Avoid over-eating, especially “comfort” foods. Give your family a big hug and tell them you love them.
And always remember, Astrology and other tools are simply that – tools. It’s good information to have, but it does not mean that this is the determining factor or controlling your life. We all have free will in all the choices that we make. I like to look at it as good information that can be
transcended.

Embrace winter’s lower energy – and the opportunity to rest

You’ve hit the hump, surviving the shortest, darkest days of the year.
The Dec. 21st winter solstice signifies a gradual shift to more daylight, but temperatures continue to fall and snow to mount through February in most of the United States and Canada. Spring doesn’t officially arrive until March 20, meaning it’s time to find creative ways to stay physically active and mentally resilient.
Due to the lack of sunlight, many people suffer from depression, or seasonal affective disorder (SAD), during the winter months. However, research reveals low energy during winter is routine. It’s normal and natural to experience a slight seasonal variance in mood and behavior.
So don’t beat yourself up if you aren’t going, going, going all the time. Embrace the opportunity to rest.
Some, such as followers of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), see decreased energy in wintertime as a reflection of the season’s energy. Rising (yang) and falling (yin) energies cycle as the seasons change. Winter’s yin energy is quiet, slow, and reflective. As winter turns to spring, the bright, expansive and upbeat yang energy ushers in a season of rebirth and renewal.
Nature and the animal kingdom express universal energies by their patterns and behaviors, which are mirrored in the energies of the human body and human experience. Just think of the animals that grow a winter coat, pack on extra weight and hibernate. Remember your perennials that go dormant underground, but will sprout through dirt in the spring.
The same goes for humans. The season’s energy invites us to enjoy extra sleep and to savor comfort foods. The colder, inclement weather forces us to spend most of our time indoors, which can be a good thing because it also causes us to slow down, self-reflect and ponder our life’s purpose.
Here are some ways to mindfully manage difficult emotions, excessive eating and low energy during these months:
• Use the down time to focus on healing, letting go and cultivating new connections
• Set aside time to practice conscious breathing
• Find ways to check in with yourself and quiet the mind
• Incorporate restorative activities into daily routines
• Light scented candles or enjoy a hot bath with essential oils
• Build a fire in an indoor fireplace; enjoy the sounds, smells, warmth and light it radiates
• Curl up and get lost in a book
• Invite bright colors into living spaces
• Try gentle yoga, t’ai chi or stretching; commit to some form of regular movement
• Listen to relaxing music or soothing nature sounds
• Take a nap or cuddle with your child or pet
• Participate in physical and social activities that bring joy and meaning
• Find ways to enjoy the outdoors: Go on a nature walk, try snowshoeing or take pictures
• Play or do something you did as a kid: Ice skating, building a snowman, sledding
• Appreciate the cycle of the seasons and life
Maybe your soul is in need of some Sedona sunlight. Or your body is calling out for a little pampering. Whether you need a holistic retreat, spa retreat, couples retreat or are seeking a spiritual awakening, Sedona Soul Adventures can custom design any retreat to meet your needs. Whatever kind of getaway you need to get your life back on track, we’ve got it! Call now toll free 877-204-3664 or Click here and your Angel Guide will call you today!
Don’t feel guilty about getting a little extra rest, being lazy and loafing on the weekends this winter. But if you are prone to being quiet, introverted and low energy, don’t let it lead to lethargy, never leaving the house, or too much introspection. Strive for balance, perspective and inner peace. If it helps, remember: “This, too, shall pass.”
