Customer Review: Venus in Libra Candle

A friend of mine in my astrology program gave our teacher some of Dazmond’s candles for an end of year gift. We had a zoom call going as he opened her gift and he was so effusive over them I asked for Dazmond’s website info. 

I love to light a candle during an astrology reading. I’m a Libra rising and was immediately drawn to her Venus in Libra candles. They came so quickly and so beautifully wrapped. 

I’ve been using them in my last few readings and I can feel the difference in my readings. There’s more of a give and take in them, whereas before, I felt like I needed to give as much information as I could in a session. Now, I find myself relaxing more into the session (like Venus is my wing-woman guiding me along). 

Today I had a reading with someone who was having a lot of action in her Libra 4th house (Pluto squaring it from her 7th). We’ve done some readings before but this time I think we both felt supported talking about some of the emotional experiences my client is facing. 

I’m so grateful for Dazmond’s candles and I highly recommend them for anyone not only needing some support from the planets but the beautiful but subtle aromas the candles provide. You won’t be disappointed!

Full Moon in Aries: 4 of Wands, Completion (October 2021)

Full Moon in Aries

The Full Moon in Aries is on October 20, 2021 in the final decan of the pioneering sign (at 27° 26′), which is ruled by Venus and Jupiter. This decan represents a rite of passage or celebration of initial success. In the Tarot, it’s assigned to the 4 of Wands, whose esoteric name is the Lord of Completion, or the Lord of Perfected Work.

Since the New Moon in Libra on October 6, Mars and Mercury have both been reborn in the heart of the Sun, starting new planetary cycles. Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, and Mercury have all ended their Retrograde cycles, making way for a new chapter where energies can begin to move forward again. Pluto is in there breaking down the old structures and rooting through the ashes for gold and information.

With so many planets stationing direct, there is both the feeling that things are starting to move ahead, and that the energy is standing still. It will take Pluto, Saturn, and Jupiter time before they get back up to speed (while Mercury will be a little quicker on his feet).

New Moon in Libra & Planetary Retrogrades: October 2021

New Moon in Libra

The New Moon in Libra falls on Wednesday, October 6 in the wee hours of the morning (4:05 am Pacific). This strange New Moon is in cahoots with aggressive Mars and a rather mischievous Mercury Retrograde in Libra. Both of these planets are readying to be reborn in the heart of the Sun over the course of the next few days – Mars on October 7th and Mercury on the 9th.

Pluto stations direct, ending a Retrograde journey from 24° – 26° Capricorn on the same day as the New Moon in Libra. The Moon, Sun, Mars & Mercury will all square Pluto over the course of the next month as this drama unfolds. These Libra planets, with their diplomatic skill and carefully honed strategies do have an upper hand over Pluto, but are heavily influenced by him to slow down and dig deep at this time.

With the New Moon in Libra directly opposite the wounded healer, Chiron, there can be a feeling of woundedness and personal injury now. We can be acutely aware of any wrongdoings and injustices that have thrown off the sacred balance of Libra’s scales. This constellates around the theme of independence and having the freedom to be ourselves. This is a motif that Chiron has been navigating since 2018-19.

This chart is ruled by Mercury Retrograde in the 2nd House. This is a time of going inward and contemplating what matters or has value, including our own sense of self-worth. Venus is the secret puller of strings behind the scenes. She sinks to the bottom of the chart in the final degrees of Scorpio. Just after the New Moon, she makes a bold move into Sagittarius. Here, she and the Moon join up with the South Node, activating the cosmic release hatch.

Full Moon in Pisces & October Astrology: 10 of Cups

Full Moon in Pisces

The Full Moon in Pisces falls on Monday, September 20, 2021, just two days before Autumn Equinox, the changing of the seasons and the turning of the Wheel. In the last part of Pisces, alongside daydreaming Neptune, the Full Moon invokes the 10 of Cups card in the Tarot, the Lord of Satiety.

As every Full Moon is an opposition, we also have the Sun representing the 10 of Pentacles (Wealth), nearly ready to forge a new path when he initiates Libra season on Wednesday. Both of these cards signal completion: Emotional & Physical. Relationships, family, and security are major themes at work with this Moon. The 10’s of the Tarot serve here as a reminder that we’re at the end of the season and new energies are definitely incoming.

Mercury forms a perfect, uplifting trine to the Full Moon in Pisces’ ruler, Jupiter, during this lunation. In the same moment, he makes an intense square to purgative Pluto. Both aspects will be repeated during Mercury’s forthcoming Retrograde (September 26 – October 18). Pluto will be a main player as we wrap up this Lunar cycle and during the entirety of the Next, stationing Direct on the New Moon and nowhere near stopping at that.

An abundance of free-flowing Air energy will be stimulating mentally, making this Full Moon a good time for research and investigation. We can bring things into the light more easily now, confronting truths we buried long ago.
