Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon in Capricorn

July 1 @ 7:20 PM PDT

We begin the month with the first of two full moons….or better know as a Blue Moon month. You know, blue moonthe saying, “once in a blue moon” well, this is that month!

This first full moon is in Capricorn/ Cancer . The energy is about balancing the divine feminine and masculine. Cancer is the sign most equated with the receptive female Goddess energy, and the balance of our emotional body! Capricorn represents the adult Male energy, responsible, hardworking, goal and duty oriented. We are asked  to learn to blend these two, creating balance between work and home, giving and receiving, nurturing and growing. Capricorn gets it done….Cancer nurtures it. Learning to integrate both is the task at hand!

panstarrs_cook_960There are several additional aspect to this Full Moon that may cause emotions to flare, so instead of  over reacting…. Pause…… what is trying to be revealed in this conversation? How can you listen, learn, and allow feelings without judgement?

The  underlying issue is about a home work balance. Can you spend less time at work, and more with your family….what do you have to release in order to gain more heart centered quality time?

This moon will illuminate any glaring gaps, and allow for adjustments to be made. We also have the beautiful Venus/Jupiter conjunction blessing this full moon, so blessings will be abundant!

Take time to be out in the dazzling moon light, soak in her beauty and light….

Let go of what is not working and in your work/family life….and create what your heart desires.

And, you can still Join us for our Full Moon Ride and Ceremony in Griffith Park!

July 15th …..New Moon in Cancer @ 23 *   6:42 Pm PDT

This is a super busy Cosmic Day! Not only is it a New Moon in Cancer, representing new beginnings in allpulling weeds those Cancer ruled areas of life….home, family, feelings, releasing the past…. we also have a Mars/ Mercury conjunction, in Cancer  opposite Pluto in Capricorn! This will be a time when new insights about what is important, really important are brought to the surface. What do you value most? What makes you feel safe? You may need, or choose to put your family first, or take care of an elderly parent. The New Moon ceremony will focus on new beginnings in this area of your life. You  will want to pull out all the old past mental weeds that strangle your future. Cancer has a tendency to hold on to the bitter end……..time to let go and reinvent! You only hurt yourself with the vice grip around your heart! The below aspect with help you pull the deep growing weeds! Ceremony details will be posted  on the New Moon Page.

July 15th….Mercury Mars conjunction opposite Pluto!

This can be a tricky influence  that lasts from about the 13th to the 17th. Communications can be happy firendschallenging. Watch out for  misunderstanding. Tempers flare more easily than normal! There will be a strong tendency to to be reactive or impulsive! Best Practice during these few days ….Pause before you lash out or say something you could regret. Your words and responses can either hurt or heal! This is an opportunity to heal  long standing hurts…..so Pause… Breathe….take the high road….and respond with love, kindness, and a way to create a win win…..not a screaming match! Since this powerful aspect is occurring during the Cancer New Moon….take this opportunity to create NEW communications and understanding with family and friends!

It is important to note here that both Mars and Mercury will be passing over the challenging  degrees of the past Pluto Uranus square. So, a block or challenge to your new direction could be revealed! Or, if you have not proceeded down your new path, a new one can become  painfully clear now!

July 25th..Venus Stations Retrograde thru 9/6

Venus  stations retrograde for six weeks every 18 months. So when she does take a nap, she will be trying to tell us something important. The areas she will be addressing are relationship, partnerships, self-esteem, finances and what you value! She starts her retrograde motion in Virgo thru the end of July, entering Leo for all of August.venus

During the Virgo phase , there will be an additional focus on health, organization, your daily routines, and if they support or limit what you love to do or what you value. If your office is a mess, will you have to stay late and miss out on a date or family dinner? You may find de-cluttering and organizing is what’s needed to free you up! And, the same goes with your health….are you prevented from doing those things you love as your fitness and diet are not up to par and you are too tired engage in your favorite events

Encounters with past lovers, partners or good friends will probably occur, allowing  you see how far you have come…or not. Now is the time to really look at Love and your Relationships! Are there repeat patterns that continue to cause grief? If so, what will it take to release and recreate a more balanced empower relationship?

Also…..a few additional  rules for Venus RX…..Do Not make big expensive purchases during this time…and NO Cosmetic Surgeries . You won’t like the outcome of either when Venus goes direct!

Remember Venus rules all things beautiful, your values, what you love, and your $. So, just a heads up for you to work with  the energy and cosmic flow!

July 26th…..Uranus goes RX  until 12/25 (while squaring Mars!)uruans planet-001

No doubt about it, this will be a volatile day! Mars is a catalyst, one that sparks something that has been on the verge of movement, and Uranus is always calling us to greater freedom! This influence can be a signal or crossroads that indicates a choice or decision needs to be made. One that has been holding on, allowing you to procrastinate! You will know what this is. Think of this  aspect is  a Cosmic Kiss as it will  give you the boost  to Make that Change!   Please, do resist the urge to be impulsive and act before you think. You can make the decision, and allow the implementation over time. And, once you make that decision, the Universe will conspire to help! Remember, the decision is about creating and bringing you a greater sense  of freedom and the ability to express your TRUE gifts and talents!

New Moon in Gemini Tuesday 7:05 AM PDT

gemini.2Greetings Cosmic Artist,

Each month, we are blessed to have new, powerful Cosmic energy to assist us in our evolutionary process. Tuesday, June16th @7:05 AM PDT, we have the New Moon in Gemini…. (Ruler of our mind and thoughts.) This, of course, is perfect Divine right timing! As we just completed a three week Mercury Rx in Gemini, reviewing and rethinking plans, projects, relationships and life in general! So, on Tuesday, here is the lineup for this New Moon…Mercury ( how we think and process) is in Gemini, Mars the action planet is (conjunct or kissing this New Moon in Gemini), and of course the Sun kissing the Moon, both in Gemini.! We now have the opportunity to anchor and implement all the new inspired ideas and insights we received during the last few weeks!

 

We are creatures of habit. Actually, we think about 40,000 thoughts per day!rethink

Our brains are busy! And, as we think and rethink these same thoughts over and over…you know the ones that limit us and hold us hostage…. a deep groove is created. This is why it is so difficult to break up these patterns….they are super ingrained in our brains, operating at subconscious levels.

 

Tuesday is an opportunity to begin anew….and do a bit of reprogramming!

Call it a new update and download into the real personal computer…your brain! creative brain

With so much NEW empowering information available to us now…. It’s time for a super upgrade. Let the fear and self-defeating beliefs go! We KNOW they are NOT true…so don’t let them run your life. Delete them…..Period! And, with this much Gemini energy, we have tons of Cosmic support for NEW programs! There is also a special Jupiter trine Uranus, (expansion of the new) so be open to receive new innovative, unique ideas and approaches that come to you in a FLASH! Those Ahaa Moments….and you have the GREEN light to act on them! The first few days of the week will be very busy, so as you begin anew, work to stay as grounded as possible.cosmic rays

Here are a few crystals that work with Gemini energy and will help calm your mind allowing you to think clearly!

Blue Lace Agate…awesome for communication, helping you to release  fear  and speak your truth, connect to your inner guidance, and promotes clarity on all levels ! It also integrates both sides of the Gemini duality!

blue lace agate

Chrysocolla… A Beautiful Stone for Communication, which is of course, Gemini’s forte! Great for speaking truth, clarifying the info you are receiving, and connecting you to your higher mind.chrysocolla

Apophylite…I love this stone to assist in connecting and communicating with your higher self, your spirit guides and angels, and activating inner vision.

 Use any or all of this for your ceremony and mediation for the next few weeks!

 

Now, on to the New Moon ceremony! Gemini rules our thought process, including writing, speaking, effective listening, and teaching.   The best way to use the power of this New Moon is to anchor NEW THOUGHTS and intentions! Let’s release some of those 40,000 old warn out thoughts that keep us in despair and struggle, and open up and reinvent new grooves that lead to creativity, joy adventure and our soul’s path.let it go!

Sample intentions to promote effective communication are:

I LISTEN and pause before I respond to my family or co-workers so I truly HEAR them.

I ASK the right questions, leading me to a clear understanding in ALL conversations.

Full Moon in Sagittarius June 2nd

fullmoonin purpleFull Moons bring light to the dark, illuminating what has been in the shadows of two opposing areas of our life. Gemini seeks to gather and share information. Sagittarius aims to discover truth and meaning! Each day, 100 billion emails, 20 billion texts, and 500 million tweets fly thru cyberspace! Yicks! Our bodies are not designed to to process so much information! This full moon is an opportunity to slow down, step away from the information haze, turn off all devices….and just BE! It is so important to take a cyber break…and let our brains recharge. And, a dose of full moon light is just what the Doc ordered!

Neptune, ( the Spiritual Planet) forms a T-square with this Full moon indicating another way of perceiving and knowing. Intuition is nonlinear. It connects is with an intelligence far beyond the bounds of logic or analysis. To access we have to slow down and tune IN, or we miss the signals from our 6th sense.cosmic-breath-of-life

Take time to BE in the quiet of this powerful new moon. Listen for YOUR truth! Let go of what you think….and ALLOW nature to nurture you!

June 2015 Overview!

Greetings and Happy Birthday Gemini!

gemini.2

We start the month with  Mercury, ruler of Gemini, still in Retrograde! And, this has been a bit of a challenging Rx might I add. I just moved…(not recommended during a retrograde:)) and boy, it required diligence, follow up, and intention on the outcome!  For my regulars, still at the Dolphin….I just moved from the M to the R building! And, I  have to say….I LOVE the new space!

 

Here are the HIGHLIGHTS for June!

Tuesday June 2nd……Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini @9:18 AMyogapose withmoon

Full Moons bring light to the dark, illuminating what has been in the shadows of two opposing areas of our life. Gemini seeks to gather and share information. Sagittarius aims to discover truth and meaning! Each day, 100 billion emails, 20 billion texts, and 500 million tweets fly thru cyberspace! Yicks! Our bodies are not designed to to process so much information! This full moon is an opportunity to slow down,

step away from the information haze, turn off all devices….and just BE! More details on the full moon page……….

Thursday June 11…Mercury stations direct in Gemini @3:33 PM! Yippee!

Please, give this direction motion of Mercury a few days before you begin moving forward on all your projects. Take the time to process all that has occurred in the last three weeks. What great new ideas or insights were reveled?  Is there a NEW direction, clarity, or new beginnings in any area of your life? You will be thinking and seeing much clear now, so trust the strong inner directions!

Sunday June 14th…Saturn re-enters Scorpio until 9/17.

Saturn has been traveling  in retrograde motion in Sagittarius, and on the 14th, will re-enter the last degrees of Scorpio until 9/17 , not returning again until 2041!  So, lets take a look at how this last dip into Scorpio can empower and help you over the summer! Saturn entered Scorpio in October of 2012.  He always gets a bad wrap, but, his job is to humbly, quietly, and sometimes with restrictions, enable you to put solid, sound structures in your life that support your future growth. Lets face it, you can’t build on a weak foundation! And, it is Saturn’s job to build a solid, lasting foundation in the area of your chart he visits! Take a little time to review the last 2.5 years. What old foundations crumbled that allow you to rebuild in a new way? What really needs to be let go of…person, places or things? Scorpio rules transformation at a deep level…so the next few months allows you to really let go of the stubborn, stuck elements that continue to hold you back! Look for the gifts that this will bring you! Befriend Saturn for this last dip into the energy of transformation…..and release with a grateful heart!

Sunday June 21….Summer Solstice

This is a beautiful day to celebrate the beginning of summer and those long, lazy days we love! It coincides this year with Fathers day…so perfect time to honor our dads! We will be holding a beautiful Solstice event at the Dolphin Marina club house  from 7 to p pm. Please RSVP for all the details!

 

Monday June 22….Jupiter trine Uranus

This trine between these two giants is quite exciting and won’t happen again until December 2019!It is a slow moving aspect, so it will be in orb for thru June and into the first few weeks of July….exact on the 22nd.  First, both planets are in Fire signs, Leo and Aries (passion and movement). Jupiter expands and magnifies whatever it is around and Uranus creates unexpected events that can take you to new and exciting places! Best Practice during this time:

*Stay open, consider new options and avenues.

*Let go of preconceived ideas as to how ….be willing to not know and just go with the flow!

*Be original….let your uniqueness shine thru!

* Make the changes that will bring you more freedom, and heart felt expression!

* Try new things that present …..break out of old patterns…pay attention to synchronicity!

Really enjoy this time….it doesn’t happen often! Key words….Radical New Expansion! Yippee!

6/23 to 7/5…Eclipse point of 3/21 activated!

This may or may not effect you…..but I wanted to bring it to your attention, as the Eclipse on 3/21 was super powerful! What ever does happen, I  feel it will bring a good vibe as it is under the Jupiter/Uranus trine. So, for example, if something changed and new direction has not happened…..this could be the time! Just remember it is another piece of the Eclipse puzzle!

Just stay open, aware, and insightful…..please review all the info posted on the March overview if this was a dramatic time for you!

And….lastlycrystal

Sunday 6/28…..I am excited to announce that I will be teaching a beginning Astrology  + crystal  grid class at the AURA Shop at 2914 Main St., Santa Monica! The Class is from 12-4 .
