New Moon in Cancer June 23

New Moon in Cancer
June 23
7:31 PM
New Moons are when both the Sun and Moon align in the same sign, offering us an opportunity to hit the re-set button, re-think and renew our ideas and commitments in the area where this alignment occurs. This month it is Cancer. So, our focus turns to home and family, belonging (or not) and what makes us feel safe and secure.
The comforts and familiarity of home and spending time in the garden or nature is pulling at our hearts! This is very instinctual pull, and can be a time of profound healing that takes place quietly deep within us as we allow our family……or……nature to make us feel loved, safe, and protected!
The impacts of this New Moon run deep, particularly since we have such strong planetary presence, (Mars and Mercury join the Sun and Moon) in this area of the Cosmos!
Our feelings will need attending too.
And, expressing them in loving, kind ways is our Best Practice!
Family, children, parents, generational issues, may resurface for you to take a look at and Heal.

Overall you may be quite emotional as this energy is very strong!

 * Mercury is conjunct the Sun and Moon: Linking your consciousness with your soul/higherself. This allows us to bridge these two aspects more easily.
*Jupiter is a major player and is part of a  t-square with Pluto and Mars
 forming a quincunx with Neptune and Venus.
Meaning…..  issues and conversations will be Magnified in some way. It’s important not to let them get blown up out of proportion!  Keep focus on the positive side of situations, and a win win for all!
Here is a crystal grid for this New Moon to help Balance and calm these energies!
 I am calling in the Love with Rose quarts for Jupiter in Libra, Moonstone to set a new beginning in Cancer, Labradorite for higher perspective, and of course Amethyst to calm and connect, along with Selenite! You can use any or all of these for your intention ceremony!
Let’s amplify  Love for our Global Family!!!

As you prepare for your New Moon Ceremony…..Remember, this is  special reset for the summer, your family and friends, taking time to enjoy, relax a bit, and plan some down time to take care of your self! The  Summer Solstice was late on the 20th, and has long been celebrated as a turning point for the next 3 months! So this New Moon energy is extra powerful for manifesting what your heart desires!

And…if you are in LA….please join us for a powerful New Moon Ceremony, Sound Bath, Meditation at the AURA SHOP on Main St. Santa Monica! Details and sign up here  http://aurashop.com/event/new-moon-ceremony-meditation-july/?instance_id=130

June 2017 Overview!

Happy Birthday Gemini!

As we begin the month….the shifts just keep on coming! Interestingly…..this month they occur in 3’s, overlapping each other.

So let’s  get into it….

 

 

June 4th- 7/20….. Mars into Cancer…Focus on the home-front! Emphasis will be on family and home. We will be feeling more emotional, vulnerable, and possibly nostalgic!

June 5th – 7/4….Venus into Taurus! Venus Rules the sign of Taurus, and she Loves her annual visit here! Emphasis now on sensuality/passion; your resources/finances; nurturing self and others, natural beauty!

June 6th- 6/21.… Mercury into Gemini! Also  its ruling sign, he functions well here! This placement helps with clearer communication, processing info, and overall mental functions. Conversations and interactions are easier because you and other tend to be more open, adaptable and flexible!

Mars, Venus and Mercury are referred to as the “personal planets” because the are closest to Earth and they Rule areas of our daily life. They do change signs more often than the larger more distant Stars, but, it is rare when all 3 shift within 48 hours!  These are not bad transits!  Just note that these first few days the energy  will feel a Unsettled,until each planet moves in to the sign!

The second group…..

June 9th Jupiter stations direct! Yippee! The planet of blessings and expansion has been resting that last 4 months, and when he turns direct, especially at the time of the full moon, things will feel bigger and more expansive than perhaps they really are. Jupiter’s high agenda is always to enlighten us with new insights and information, and it may be that whatever events are occurring now relate to this. Jupiter in Libra will likely bring attention to legal matters and courts as well as issues related to equality and justice. While retrograde it is likely that information was being gathered but not made available. Now, going direct, at the Full Moon, it is likely that this planet, who rules honesty, integrity, and courts, will be shinning a light on something important! ( Interesting that Comey is set to testify on the 8th…..hmmmmmmm!!!!!! )

June 9th …Full Moon in Sagittarius….Sagittarius is the Truth Seeker and the natural ruler of Jupiter! The emphasis now is on Truth and Honesty…..personally and collectively! Issues around power, control, exaggeration, and misinformation will be brought into the light! Be clear in how your speak your words and ideas, relating to just the facts, keeping an open mind to hear others opinions! More Details posted on the Full Moon page, along with info on our Full Moon Horseback ride and ceremony in Griffith Park

June 16th – 11/22….Neptune stations Retrograde.

While Neptune is in retrograde motion, it stimulates our inner process, assisting us  to come to a better understanding of our own personal Spiritual Path. Best Practice …. spend time in meditation, learning, going on Spiritual retreats, and time in contemplation! Neptune, more than any other planet, holds our visions. Take time to dive into the mysteries, magic, and energy of the Divine, and Vision your highest life!

June 20th Sun into Cancer…Summer Solstice! A new season begins! It is a turning point where we look at the next 3 months and decide what’s next? How do we want to spend our time? Family, nature, gardening, nurturing ourselves and our community? Warm summer nights, long days, vacations, rest, relaxation?

Now is the time to plan it!

June 23rd….New Moon in Cancer!
Time to hit the reset button, and start a new cycle! This New Moon in Cancer is quite emotional, and will bring up family, home, how you nurture yourself and others….more details and your Ceremony on the New Moon page, and here is the link to our live Full Moon gathering at the AURA SHOP on Main Street….please join in if you are in LA

 

And finally…….The last few days of the month….. a little challenging!

6/27: Mercury squares Jupiter

6/28: Mercury conjuncts Mars

6/29 Mercury opposes Pluto

To make this easier to understand…the Keywords during this time: Transparency, disruption of some kind, impulsive behavior, conflicts, clashes, turning points, renewal and new beginning!!

In general, this is likely to be quite an emotional and intense time with a lot going on at a personal level, as well as the world stage. Some possible issues taking place are related to the abuse and misuse of power, and the revealing of hidden information.  The underlying dynamic now wants truth and transparency. Jupiter in Libra will assist bringing strong energy to fairness, balance, and what is right and just!

Best Practice at  this time line…….Slow down, pause before you react angrily  or out of frustration, and be transparent,  speak the truth, and seek win win solutions!

I have several great workshops planned this Summer from Full Moon rides on horse back, Astrology and Tarot workshops, to an amazing Spiritual Adventure in Costa Rica!

       Stay

Inspired….Connected….Empowered!

Peace and Blessings
