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

New Moon in Cancer; July 4th, 2016 @ 7:01am ET☾♋

by Molly Hall

“The July 4th New Moon is a kind of emotional independence day.  The grand finale may include some explosive feelings, that then start a chain-reaction of change. 

Cancer, as you know, is the sign of moods and the Moon itself.  Sun and Moon — the Luminaries — are at 13 degrees Cancer.

Cancer’s path is paradoxical, as one of nurturing others and being motherly, but the advanced Crabs declare their independence, too.  It’s a cardinal sign, and one that pushes out, but is often mired in emotional enmeshment scenarios.

For this one, Pluto is in opposition, making it a time to face reality, even if it makes you despair at first.

Sun in Cancer + Summer Solstice; June 20th, 2016 ☀♋

“This is the time of the rose, blossom and thorn, fragrance and blood. Now on this longest day, light triumphs, and yet begins the decline into the dark. The Sun King embraces the Queen of Summer..” Starhawk, The Spiral Dance

The Summer Solstice ushers in the high point of light of this solar year on June 2o, at 6:34 pm ET. The Midsummer beams are at their brightest today, the longest day of the year, and like a sunflower, the Northern Hemisphere has its face toward the life-giving Sun.

Summer Solstice is a day for recognizing and honoring the Sun for its energy gifts of bringing light and warmth to our planet. 2016 is a special year, because the solstice coincides with a Full Moon, a time when solar light is radiant and the feminine energies are in abundance.

Fresh Fruit

The summer solstice also coincides with the Sun‘s ingress into Cancer, and the official start of the Summer season; the time of Sun play, ripening of fruit, and honey. Herbs gathered at this time (such as baked elder flower blossoms) were believed to be able to heal and bring health.

Fire and Water are celebrated at the summer solstice, along with the Earth as Mother Goddess, at her most fruitful. Many couples still marry in June, at the peak of nature’s abundance. Some traditions offer newlyweds honey-laced foods for the entire first month of marriage. Not surprisingly, the June full Moon is the Honey Moon.

“Whether it’s an equinox or solstice, we’re celebrating the start of something new. Each season has a specific and essential job that we rely on for our very existence. The equinox and solstice points are sacred markers in time that help us connect the dots to the mystery behind the Earth’s never ending circle of life.” – Maria DeSimone

While the Sun transits gentle and sentimental Cancer from June 21 – July 22, we enter the Realm of Feeling, and are being nudged to get in touch with our emotions. Under the security-conscious Cancer vibe, we rely more on emotions than logic, our actions and attitudes are colored by caution, intuition, and instinct.

Cancer is the sign of the nurturer, they will find a way to nurture something, whether it’s pets, plants, or children. They crave a sense of belonging; they need to feel needed. You just know you’re in good hands with a Cancer friend/parent/love.

We’re more susceptible to the ups and downs of the Moon now. Cancers have a moody, changeable nature, which make them an enigma, even to those closest to them. Like Cancer‘s ruler, the Moon, they are similarly known to glow fully and brightly one moment, and hide their faces the next.
