We are getting nice & mystical with this powerful Scorpio Full Moon! 🌙 A potent time to heal old wounds around worth & boundaries as well as communicate what you want from your most intimate connections.
A Full Moon in Virgo at 4:52pm PST to mark the very beginning of our month!
What are Full Moon's & why do they matter?
Full Moons are always energetic culmination points, if we are willing to pay attention to them we can live our lives with conscious emotional intention. When we are living with intention and not being dictated by own emotions, we become really, really powerful. Full Moons occur whenever the Moon is Opposing the Sun. The Moon represents our emotion, private and past selves (as well as the feminine) while the Sun represents our present, active, conscious selves (as well as the masculine)
Full Moons serve to wake us up & illuminate! Think about how bright the Moon is in the sky, it sheds light onto Earth and to us. This also makes our subconscious / private minds more open and hence Full Moons can reveal stuff we need to learn about ourselves in order to grow and move forward.
What's up with the Full Moon in Virgo?:
Virgo is a practical, grounded and super analytical sign. As I have been talking about we have EVERYTHING in Pisces RN. Pisces is a ton of emotive, spiritual and nebulous energy while the Virgo Full Moon will seek to ground and oppose all of that day dreaming & feels! i.e. I attempted to drink coffee today (aka that's my little reality check out tbh) and I could FEEL how intensely unstable it made me! Virgo seeks to bring us back down to Earth, to make peace with the moment.
So here are a few questions to ask yourself:
1. Where am I trying to check out in Life?
2. How can I show up for the details of my life? Especially my own emotional health?
3. What emotional details am I trying to skim over? Where can I pay more attention to my feelings?
A Virgo Full Moon will energetically demand that we stay present and conscious to our feelings, our path and our own unique rhythm. Virgo is about loyalty, presence and staying in tune with the consistent action it takes to get stuff accomplished. In this case with the Pisces party happening (5 planets including, Asteroid Chiron!) stay present and conscious around your feelings, dreams, etc. Analyze them and see what gold lies there to help you grow, love yourself & life more, and move forward proactively. Making peace with our past or details of a certain part of our life can absolutely be highlighted here.
Moon Square Mars:
Your emotions may feel a little like an override to your system. Taking action or movement may feel tough (aka like how the F do I get out of bed?!) - Key here: ground into the body, get some exercise, find a way to balance yourself out. If you need to cry, cry it out.
Moon Trine Saturn:
Grounding and staying present to emotional reality is KEY. Feelings seek to be felt. The emotions are like water they must flow free. Take steps to write stuff down, talk to a trusted friend or Therapist or simply do some mirror work: look yourself in the mirror, get present and talk out any emotions or issues you are facing. Stay present and grounded.
Moon Trine Pluto:
Yay! I read this as our deeper emotional work will be rewarded!! Transformation and celebration are around the corner when we get into touch and into tune with our own sh*t and limitations. Forgive the past it was simply there to help make you the best version of yourself.
I hope you enjoyed this report. Happiest Full Moon in Virgo my loves. Let it be a good one and stay present to whatever illuminates itself in your experience.

Alright, here we GO! There was a fierce neck to neck battle on my Instagram Polls on whether I should do my Astrology Reports Written-Up or via Podcast (Recorded)...it's been neck and neck, so this time I am going to do both!
Wow, as if 2018 hasn't already been off to an incredible & POWERFUL start! On January 31st, 2018 at 5:26am PST we have a FULL BLUE MOON LUNAR ECLIPSE in the charismatic, heart centric, fiery lioness that is LEO. And not to mention, this brilliant Lunation is making a perfect conjunction (11 degrees) to the dwarf planet of Femininity, Motherhood & Nurturance, Ceres, while also conjuncting the North Node of the Moon, our guiding aspect for following our destiny.
Major Lunar Message: Follow your heart & guide yourself back home to your Feminine Nature. Let GO of whatever doesn't serve you, come home, come home, come home...into the heart.
The entire world is waking up to Feminine Power right now (not JUST in women) but the importance of honoring the feminine, yin principle in all aspects of life.
This Full Moon is yet another message from the Cosmos to come back into balance and alignment so that we can continue with the unfolding of our most enjoyable & productive, existence...
Look, I never try to sound too mushy or spiritual or what-the-f*ck-ever... but the above is legit the simplistic messaging from the language of those planets.
The Moon: Femininity.
Leo: Heart Chakra
Ceres: The Feminine, The Mother
North Node: Your Destiny Point, Soul Point
Lunar Eclipse: Karmic Release, Major Release
Full Moon: Always opportunities to LET GO.
I am having a near Astrology Heart Attack of joy over here trying to tie all this together for you (As you have probably experienced when you tune into my Sunday 4pm PST Weekly Astrology Reports on Insta Live ;)
Lunar Eclipses as a Let-Go:
Lunar Eclipses are opportunities to "bring closure to problematic areas of one's life" (Foreverconscious.com), we are welcome to bring resolution and solace to the past or to something undesirable or unproductive in our personalities.
Just tonight when I was Meditating I realize that I hold a lot of resentment & judgment from past relationships. Ironically this Lunar Eclipse Full Moon traverses my 7th house Nataly, so I will definitely be setting intentions to let go, forgive and heal in this part of my life.

Focus & Impact by Sign:
Aries: Communicate, open up your mouth & heart. Speak something if it hurts you and ask for help. Letting go & surrendering old sibling drama or bad memories from childhood or highschool. Always best to move forward, onward and upward. Be the optimist.
Taurus: Releasing & honoring family wounds or wounds around the Mother. Making your current home a space of Solace & beauty for you. You are the Master of your Destiny and you are always moving forward.
Gemini: Healing Heartbreak or Heartache. This can be current or lingering from a past love. Listen to my most recent Podcast for energy & perspective around this.
Cancer: Health and Balance Checkin. Do you give to yourself as much as you give to others. Why don't you? What old pattern or habit can be looked at pragmatically now? Be gentle here.
Leo: Healing around Partnerships and Relationships. Anything that has happen in the past can be healed now but you have to be first to let go & choose healing. You are always a guiding star and a have the light of the sun in your chest.
Virgo: Healing or Forgiveness around Sexual Energy. Letting go a deep wound from the past. This is either the acceptance of one's sensual nature or the forgiving of someone trespassing against you. You are empowered now.
Libra: Trusting your Intelligence and your brilliance. You *do* know what you are doing and you *are* capable of magic and power. Go for it. All the way. Do not shrink back.
Scorpio: Healing fear of being totally seen, whether this pertains to your personal relationships or stepping into the limelight. You are safe to be you. You push standards and boundaries better than anyone. Do everything from your heart & you will thrive.
Sagittarius: Releasing old friendships, wounds around friendships or not believing in yourself. The time to fully step on your Path to your dreams is always NOW. You are never too late.
Capricorn: Letting go of the need to control, everything. Surrendering to the whisper of your intuition or your soul, trusting that there *is* something bigger than you holding you at all times, whether you care to believe it's true or not. "The Universe Has your Back" by Gabby Bernstein is a good book for you right now.
Aquarius: Healing or letting go of the idea that you can't be a leader or be fully yourself. Getting out of your own way. Taking proactive steps to be powerful, empowered and the light that you are. You got this in every way.
Pisces: Letting go of unproductive self-worth habits or money habits. Repeating the mantra that you are worthy, you are enough. Reminding yourself that you are magic and it's safe to take up the fullest space that you embody.
Want to see how this impacts your chart specifically? You can either pull the chart yourself (as I explain in the Podcast above!) or you can book a Transit Session with me here: https://www.nataliabenson.com/shop/astrologyreadingsnatalia
If a Full Moon on the first day of a New Year could speak, I think it would tell us the following:
First off, Cancer as a sign is deeply sensitive, emotive yet incredibly powerful and intuitive. Cancer is what's known as a Cardinal Water sign in Astrology. Cardinal signs are powerful & forceful in their own way. Many think of Cancer as this nurturing (maybe even sometimes pushover) type energy, but that is far from true.
A Cancer Full Moon is full of feeling. Something I talk about often in my work is the fact that in order to truly move forward and progress in life we MUST let ourselves feel. To begin a brand new year in such an emotive, watery energy I believe reminds us to feel our way through our experience, not just think our way or force our way through.
Full Moon's themselves have to do with release. What are you absolutely not taking with you this year? What is something you can't carry with you emotionally moving forward? I'll speak up first, I had a pretty painful breakup last year and I decided (today) to once and for all leave the energy of holding on to the pain and the story back in 2017 where it belongs. The idea "you can't take it with you" rings true on this Cancer Full Moon. Cancer as an astrological energy rules the past, and this Full Moon can also be about declaring release from ancestral ties or stuff we have held with us for too long that comes down our gene lines. We are constantly reinventing ourselves each and every moment if we *choose* to.
If you've been feeling unhealthy attachment to the past or to something that simply doesn't serve your happiness & growth, try the following:
1. Go into a simple meditation, closing the eyes and paying attention to the breath, say a prayer to your higher self and/or angels to help you let go of the situation and person causing pain. Trust that when you ask for assistance, you will receive it. Ask that the assistance be gentle and nurturing.
2. Visualize in your minds eye gently cutting cords of whatever attaches you and this person or situation. Watch the cords break. Then visualize gathering all of your power back up and returning it into you. See & feel yourself fill with light and love.
3. Thank yourself for this journey. Take a few deep breaths to bring yourself back to the room and the present moment.
There are a lot of very helpful aspects with this Full Moon. Including three trines to power planets Mars, Jupiter & Neptune.
Trine to Mars: Feeling emotionally sluggish or off? Movement, action & taking initiative will assist in a major way to move stagnant energy. You will most likely feel empowered to move forward & let sh*t go.
Trine to Jupiter: We are met with super helpful energy from the Universe to expand ourselves, learn and grow forward. Emotional work & self "improvement" *always* pays off one way or the other. The result? Our inner peace.
Trine to Neptune: Meditation will feel extremely good and maybe even easy with this aspect. Dreams can be incredibly vivid and powerful. Write them down and see what they have to say for you or perhaps even the situation you meditated and explored above.
