New Moon Solar Eclipse; August 21, 2017 ◉♌

 

“I was never really insane except upon occasions when my heart was touched.” 
― 
Edgar Allan Poe

A spectacular celestial event occurs on August 21st, 2017 at 2:30 pm ET when our most intimate cosmic bodies — Sun, Moon and Earth — click into place creating a Total Solar Eclipse.

This is the second of two consecutive Leo lunations — a magical bonus round to magnetize our heart’s desire. This extraordinary New Moon also occurs near the powerful fixed star Regulus, the Royal Star – the brightest in the Leo constellation.

“At this Leo New Moon, dare to be vulnerable and wear your heart on your sleeve! Why hold back your true feelings about someone you admire? Or pretend you don’t love something that’s not considered “cool” by the self-appointed tastemakers of the world? What’s really cool is to be unapologetically yourself.” -Astrotwins

Mars, our action planet, will be within four tiny degrees of this eclipse, adding a big boost of energy. These heavenly bodies will receive shimmering vibrations from Uranus, the planet of surprise.

Those whose personal planets are activated by the 29th degree of the eclipse will feel its effects on a highly personal level.

Ideas planted during this period will have a lot of fire behind them. Put your unique brand of amazing in all you’re passionate about!

Electric breakthroughs can be made, especially if you are born around February 26th or August 21st. Home and relationship changes are likely if your birthday falls near February 11th or August 7th.

For clues, think back to the eclipse of August 22nd, 1998, when there was a Solar Eclipse in Leo at the same degree. Can you remember anything special that happened that year or in early 1999?

Locate where Leo falls in your birth chart, it will show you which area of your life is being activated.

Celebrate accomplishments, big and small

Wishing you Peace, Love & Light. xx

 

 

Venus in Cancer; Jul. 31st – Aug. 26th, 2017 ♀♡♋

Venus, our planet of love, pleasure and beauty, moves from breezy Gemini into the sentimental waters of CancerVenus in Cancer will be a nostalgic time for us. Sincerity, sensuality and sensitivity are all aphrodisiacs during this cycle as we focus on the deeper emotional connections between our partners, friends and family.

Possibilities for Venus in Cancer

  • Giving the gift of your undivided attention.
  • Looking at any issues of dependency, as a way of keeping someone with you forever.
  • Irrational moods (being Moonstruck), temporarily losing all objectivity, throwing tantrums to get needs met.

Full Moon in Capricorn; July 9, 2017❂♑

A Full Moon in Capricorn occurs on Sunday, July 9th, 2017, at 12:07 AM ET when the sensitive Cancer Sun opposes the cool Capricorn Moon. This cosmic illumination is about the balance between sweet success and material rewards vs. the comfort of home and family. Both signs ultimately seek security, yet reach for it in very different ways. This is an invitation to look reality in the eye as we reset our priorities.

“The reason this 24-hour time-period stands out is that there is not only a very powerful and potentially enlightening Full Moon  – energizing 18 degrees of Cancer and Capricorn – but intense, formidable and secretive Pluto unites with the Moon and is therefore a part of the entire Full Moon vibration. There is so much more going on now in the subterranean regions of the human kingdom than there was in February 1930, when distant Pluto was discovered at 18 degrees of Cancer. Thus, this Full Moon – while a possible source of amazing illumination in so many ways – can drag many souls down into murky recesses of deep-seated feelings, repressed emotions, and even so-called past-life memories. Wisdom dictates that being an ambassador of love and light to our fellow travelers on board Spaceship Earth is the way to travel.” -Mark Lerner

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
