Be a Closet Astrologer

What if we ventured to deal with our closets by the phases of the moon and other planets?

This thought occurred to me as we approach Mercury going direct, that perhaps the energy of a Mercury retrograde is a good time to re-evaluate our closets.  I just realized that I made very little progress in planning my wardrobe during the past few weeks, and was just sort of living with the clothes I have and making the best of it.  Maybe that was the correct energetic response to the pause that Mercury retrograde brings us?

So then I got to thinking about how we could use the energy of new and full moons with our closets?

New Moon Magic:

The magical energy of the new moon is for setting new intentions. You can use it to commit to new ways you are going to be creative or develop something new in your life. You can use this time to dream your closet. What do you want to fill it with? What do you want to draw in to you? How is your closet feeling energetically for you? is it supporting you? What is needed to enhance this? This is a great time to build your pinterest boards, create polyvores or even make photoshop collages or paper ones.

The sign and house of the new moon can sometimes guide us as to the specific things we are needing to focus upon. It is a good idea to think about the new moon in advance of it being exact, in part because their is an orb of energy the day before and after, both the new moon and the full.

The new moon is quieter than the full, and thus gets a lot less press. You may not feel the same intensity that we often notice around a full moon.

Full Moon Magic:

While the sun and moon are in the same energetic sign at a new moon, they are in opposite ones at the full moon. We feel this tension, but it's also a time of fruition and manifestation of the intentions we set at the previous new moon. We've been working with that intent, perhaps that we made about our closet, but now we have a chance to integrate it in a deeper way. Now we are ready to move from blueprint to building the house. We have planned out our new closet organizational design, purchased the hangars and shelves, and now we are ready to take the action of putting it all together.

While we created symbolic imagery at the new moon, we may want to make a more three dimensional expression at the full moon. This could be an altar or it could be making your closet into an altar!
