Astro Details of this Full Moon….

The Full Moon each month is the height of the Lunar cycle (which begins at the New Moon, 2 weeks earlier).

During the days around the full moon, feelings start to get intense, dynamic, and emotions are strong. Things that were unknown become clear under the light and energy  of the Moon. Full Moons always illuminate what has been hidden.

This 2nd Full moon of the month  is in the axis of Leo/Aquarius.

Leo Rules Creativity, Fun, Self-Expression, while Aquarius is about collaboration, humanitarian issues, the greater good and the Future! This Full Moon will have us look at and consider what is best for our planet at this time. What kind of revolutionary change can be made that allows for personal self expression, and yet enhances  innovative growth!

This is the opportunity to get clear and fearlessly step in your Power ( Leo the Lion Power),cat lion

shining your light so bright  that your unique  gifts and talents impact your personal tribe in a very dynamic way (Aquarius!)creativity

Whether you join us at Mothers Beach, our spend the evening on your own…..be sure to take a moment to be energized and inspired by this amazing Blue Moon………..

 

 

And…step into your next chapter …..with Grace, Ease and a little

Moonlight Magic!

New Moon in Cancer July 15th @6:24 PM PDT

new begining with flowersNew Moon in Cancer

July 15th

6:42 PM PDT

New Moons are  the best time each month for setting intentions, making adjustments, and starting anew….and this New Moon in Cancer will have some super moonbeams flying! We have a very active line up in the cosmos that will assist us in anchoring all our new intentions, and perhaps, guiding us to new empowering paths!

cosmic-breath-of-lifeThe 15th is a super busy Cosmic Day! Not only is it a New Moon in Cancer, representing new beginnings in all 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 in effect from the 13th to the 17th. 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!let it go!

The Mars/Mercury/Pluto influence lasts from  the 13th to the 17th.  So, heads up….communications can be challenging. Watch out for  misunderstanding. Tempers flare more easily than normal! There will be a strong tendency 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!think big dog

It is important to note here that both Mars ( action) and Mercury (communication) will be passing over the challenging  degrees of the past 3 year Pluto Uranus square,  activating the New Moon, 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 clear now! This is awesome cosmic help to have on the New Moon!go somewhere new

As always, remember to do your ceremony at the exact time or AFTER. Not before. You can make your lists and prepare, but do it after!

Just as a reminder, New Moons occur every 29 1/2 days when the moon aligns with the sun in each of the 12 signs. It is a natural time of new beginnings. The ancients used the timing of the moon as a way of life, from planting to sowing to celebrating.  Be clear, set your intentions, see and feel them complete, and trust the universe to do the rest!

Cancer rules your home, family, your internal structure or root beliefs, safety, intimacy/caring skills, feelings/moods, nurturing, being supported and accepting support.

  2. Get quiet, center, and make your ceremony sacred.
