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 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

Venus in Pisces; Jan. 3 – Feb. 3, 2017 💙♀♓

An escape into beauty and fantasy arrives today, as Venus enters the mystical realm of Pisces. Our approach to love is impacted by whatever sign Venus happens to be in, and romance doesn’t get much more enchanting than when Venus is in the sensitive Water sign of Pisces.

Empathy, tolerance and understanding are among the highest expressions of Piscean/Neptunian energy. The most sublime creative potential is available to us during the next four weeks. The ecstasy of self-expression through poetry, photography, or other form of art is enhanced.

“This fantasy-fueled phase will be doubly strong since Venus’ co-pilot Mars is also in Pisces until January 28. Early Valentine’s Day anyone? Cupid could wing in on an earlier flight in 2017—and January is the month to surrender to his charms and get swept away.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Pisces allows us to experience the free-flowing nature of romance with less hesitation or expectation. This is the placement where we yearn for a deep soul mate connection. We may long for whatever we value in the depths of our being, whether that is forbidden love, forgiveness or compassion. However, under these dreamy stars we might lower our defenses a little too much…or too soon.

New Moon in Scorpio; October 30th, 2016 @1:38 PM EDT ☾🎃♏

New Moon occurs today in the mysterious water sign of Scorpio. This energetic doorway invites us to delve deep into our innermost universe; to rummage around, get to the bottom, find the secrets, the lies, and soul-centered desires. It’s an emotional reboot in the sign of creation, destruction, and renewal.

“Scorpio has a reputation for being uncannily intuitive, even downright psychic. This will open our channels, bringing gut feelings and knowing flashes. In this uber-practical, material world (the domain of Scorpio’s OPPOSITE sign, Taurus) most of us brush these messages off, never giving much credence to our inner guidance. But in Scorpioville, nothing is too freaky, psychedelic, or uncanny to be explored. Let go and let it flow. The universe is your psychic hotline.” -Astrotwins

Venus in Scorpio; Sept. 23rd – Oct. 18th, 2016 ♀💕♏

“She cast her fragrance and her radiance over me. I ought never to have run away from her.” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince

Venus, our planet of Love shimmers red with intensity as she slithers through mysterious Scorpio from September 23 to October 18th. Venus’ time in Scorpio takes us beyond the superficial to encounters of bare naked honesty. This is about the merger of bodies, minds and spirits.

While Venus in breezy Libra was all about making relationships peaceful and balanced, Venus in Scorpio seeks deeper and more honest interactions with others and issues of trust, intimacy, loyalty, and power could come to the surface.

“Cleopatra and Josephine Bonaparte relied on rose oil for its seductive properties. When you see and smell a rose it is hard not to think of pure love! In Indonesia they lay out ylang ylang flowers on the bed of a bride and groom to help get things going! Sandalwood is very relaxing and most helpful for getting into the mood for men and women. When it comes down to it though, anything that makes you feel sexy is going to be an aphrodisiac!” -Julie Wray, Olivine Atelier

Venus in Scorpio Celebs

☆Frank Ocean ☆ Demi Moore ☆ Denzel Washington ☆ Winona Ryder ☆ Lena Headey ☆ Nia Long ☆ Jodie Foster ☆ Anne Hathaway ☆ Nicole Richie ☆ Nelly Furtado ☆ Katie Holmes ☆ Milla Jovovich ☆ Leonardo DiCaprio ☆ Jim Morrison ☆ Joaquin Phoenix ☆

This Venus is a mesmerizer and loves playing with her sexual power. The game of seduction occurs subtly. Grand overtures and declarations are major turn-offs. Passion is silent. Eyes and body language speak volumes. Scorpios like things to simmer slowly and know that passion is usually intensified when it is restrained or suppressed.

Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse in Pisces; September 16th, 2016

By Aeterna

“As cosmic horror master H. P. Lovecraft put it, ‘the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown’. While there is nothing horrific per se about the upcoming Full Moon / Lunar Eclipse happening on Friday, September 16 (7:05 PM UTC), at 24°19 Pisces, it’s true that it will involve a confrontation with the unknown to some extent – the transcendental, fluid unknown of the Piscean realm.

An unknown that is as mysterious as slippery and elusive, a place where ends and beginnings meet, but also a shroud that conceals things we’d much rather avoid – out of fear. Fear of losing ourselves. Fear of giving up control. Every Full Moon marks an energetic peak, which shines a bright beam on whatever is coming full-circle in our Life, highlighting culminations, realizations, manifestations in the world of five senses; yet, with Pisces, we are not dealing with a sign that lends itself to rational assessments and binary logic. Pisces is subtle, holographic – the infamous “hall of mirror” effect.

A Pisces Full Moon can encompass a wide range of contradictory nuances – the dissolution of something that allows something else to materialize. Martyrdom which cracks your heart chakra wide open allowing compassion to spill like the nectar of a flower, or vice versa. Closure. Surrendering your way into the flow of life.

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.
