New Moon in Cancer; June 23rd, 2017 ☾ ♋

Intense currents are flowing toward us as the Sun and Moon align in the first water sign of the Zodiac on June 23rd, 2017, at 10:31 PM EDT. This magical New Moon is a time to soften defenses and dive into the dimensions of our soul.

These are perfect days and nights to identify what disturbs our emotional health as we reflect on our past, our conditioning and our instinctual responses for essential feedback.

“Halting your progress before the Sun-Moon rendezvous are Mercury making a caustic, 45-degree link to Vesta (12:27AM), the monthly Moon in Gemini opposition to Saturn in Sagittarius (5:32AM), a void lunar cycle in Gemini starting at 11:46AM and ending when the Moon enters Cancer (3:08PM). Rocking the boat with dear ones as Mars and Juno joust in the heavens is a no-no. Let go of as many old problems as possible to allow the New Moon vibrations to reinforce love, understanding, and goodwill within your extended family circle.” -Mark Lerner

We may experience a longing for closeness with those that we’re at home with and trust to share our true feelings. Emotional exhaustion, a need to retreat, and moodiness are also symptoms of Cancer Moonbeams.

During these sacred moments, proceed with extra sensitivity and expressions of thoughtfulness. Find healthy outlets to nourish and regenerate your soul. Consider how you self-soothe. Know that you deserve the best.

To clarify how this New Moon in Cancer will impact you on a personal level, locate 3° Cancer in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If you have a planet or point from 0° to 7° of Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn, this New Moon will speak to you directly.

It’s important to be internally clear and meaningful about what we want now. Send your requests out in a wish or a prayer. Focus on where you’re going and make peace with the past. Your idea under this loving New Moon could bloom when the Cancer Full Moon rolls around. xx

Full Moon in Sagittarius; June 9, 2017 ❂♐

A glorious Full Moon in Sagittarius occurs on Friday, June 9th, 2017, at 9:11 AM EDT. This Strawberry Moon will be a powerful event with Jupiter (Sagittarius’ planetary ruler) turning direct just an hour before the lunar peak.

“Jupiter stations at 14 degrees of Libra to begin its forward march through the zodiac that will continue until March 8, 2018. Therefore, it is crucial to send out your healing prayers and thoughts to dear ones, friends, and struggling earthlings far and wide — as well as to the kingdoms of nature that are often forgotten in their own evolutionary journeys. While you are tuning into a vast range of illuminating vibrations, zero in on the following Jupiter-oriented themes — the power of positive thinking, good fortune, educational pursuits, seeing the shape of things to come, providence and benevolence, Big Business, long-distance journeys as well as pride, arrogance, hubris and overdoing a good thing. -Mark Lerner

The Sagittarius/Gemini axis illuminates the conflict between logic and faith. The Sun in Gemini highlights how we use our minds to perceive, process and understand life. The Sagittarius Moon asks what meanings we give to our perceptions and what judgments and beliefs we develop about what is possible.

Venus in Taurus + Mercury in Gemini; June 6th, 2017

Seismic shifts shake our lives as two planets change signs today!  Venus enters her sensual home sign of Taurus and Mercury follows suit by entering its airy home sign of Gemini. My natal Venus is in Taurus and my natal Mercury falls in Gemini, sooo I plan on taking full advantage of these cosmic treats! xx  (•◡•) 

Via Astrotwins;

“Amorous Venus breaks ground in tender, tactile Taurus. Since February 3, the cosmic love goddess has been gliding in and out of fiery, frisky, and fickle Aries—an extra long cycle that included a retrograde from March 4 to April 15. Romantic developments came in fits and starts since early 2017. Like pulling petals off a daisy, we’ve all been a little “I love you, I love you not” since February. But that all changes this week as Venus settles into steady earth sign Taurus until July 4. The sign of the bull is Venus’ home turf (as is Libra) and her powers can be quite potent here. What seemed boring last week could now feel quite heartwarming.
After months of shameless sexting, old-fashioned courtship rituals may suddenly be en vogue. A higher premium is placed on comfortable, consistent companionship than the adrenaline rush of a “here-today, gone tomorrow, back again next week” affair. Sure, a physical attraction is always going to be essential, as are common interests. But when it comes to socializing, Venus in Taurus underscores the importance of surrounding ourselves with people who share our values. Tighten up the purse strings, too, because this discerningly indulgent Venus phase helps us scrutinize our spending. If we’re going to insert a chip card into a reader, it better be for something in the “practical luxury” category.

Full Moon in Scorpio; May 10th, 2017 ♏

“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to get through this thing called life.” -Prince, “Let’s Go Crazy”

A Full Moon in enigmatic Scorpio electrifies the skies on Wednesday, May 10, 2017, at 5:42 PM EDT. The Scorpio Full Moon is probably the most intense of all lunations because Scorpios about exploring the depths of existence; the things that go beyond the physical experience – spirituality, emotions, death, rebirth.

The polar opposite of this Full Moon in Scorpio is the Taurus Sun. Earth sign Taurus is about natural beauty, stability…pleasing the senses – sight, sound, smell, taste, touch. It’s the Natural vs. the Supernatural.

“A very early morning hookup between trickster Mercury and prankster Uranus all but guarantees the day of the Full Moon won’t turn out as planned. However, evolutionary Pluto harmonizes with this lunation, revealing the inevitability of transformation. There is magic in the air — invisible to those who fear the unknown, but obvious to those who are willing to engage it.” -Rick Levine

New Moon in Taurus; April 26th, 2017❂♉

Early Wednesday, a New Moon occurs when the Sun and Moon align at 8:16 AM ET in the strong, sensual Earth sign of Taurus. After the exhilarating-yet-maddening Aries season, the Taurus Moon is reminding us to slow down. Breathe.

This exalted Taurus lunation is also ruled by Venus, our Goddess of beauty and pleasure. Our senses are being awakened to fall in love all over again with the things that make us feel good to look at, touch and taste. What do you love and value?

“The plantings of this New Moon have the potential to grow into tangible support and satisfaction. It also has an air of fatedness, of supposed-to-be, with the New Moon making a wide trine to the Virgo North Node of destiny. That contact is a benediction of sorts for the 18-month journey through Virgo the node is wrapping up, and the coming flourishing is what we’ve been working toward. And some of that could end up feeling like heaven on earth. With Venus in the waters of higher love, and their ruler Neptune offering assistance, divine or ecstatic experiences are certainly possible down here on Terra Firma.” -Sally Kirkland

With Mercury still in retrograde, it’s about laying the groundwork for action around mid-May when things won’t be as fuzzy. Also circle November 4th, the date of the corresponding Full Moon in Taurus. That’s when you’ll reap the fruits of your harvest.

Look for wherever Taurus lands in your birth chart. This is where fresh energy is being poured. If your birthday falls on April 26th, plus or minus five days, you’ll benefit the most from this New Moon. The same is true if you have a planet or point in Taurus, Leo, Scorpio or Aquarius around 6 degrees..

Light a candle; make a list. Reset intentions. xx

“You do not get what you want. You get what you believe.” -Kelley Rosano

 

Happy Earth Day!🌻

Via Cosmic Calendar
“Since this year’s Earth Day falls on a weekend, it is a good time — especially during the physically-active and pragmatic Solar Taurus dispensation of the year — to celebrate the beauty, importance and life-sustaining properties of not only trees, but the entire plant kingdom gracing Planet Earth.
Utilize the Moon’s presence in empathetic Pisces — joining forces with visionary Neptune to enjoy an uplifting, imagination-stirring experience of the landscape in your community. Feel deep inspiration during a soulful walk in the great outdoors. Cooking, baking and gardening can fit in nicely with today’s cosmic energy-field.
Turn a possibly confusion-generating Mercury-Neptune 45-degree link (2:39PM) into a creative adventure in the fine or graphic arts. Try your hand at writing rhyme poetry, limericks or haiku. Dance away the moody blues with an engaging partner tonight or listen to your favorite classical symphonies.”
