Calm And Cozy New Moon In Cancer Today….

Happy Friday!

Today’s New Moon in Cancer is at 10:31 PM EST.

This new moon falls right at home in the healing and sensitive sign of the crab, Cancer. The moon is exalted here (meaning right in its natural element) and there is a calm and nurturing vibe to the energy right now.

We feel warm, cozy and protected under this new moon.  It’s time to look at what, and how we nurture.  How we love, who we love, and what we can do to better ourselves and make things better for those in our environment.

At this time, we are asked to go within.  To pay attention to how we love and nurture ourselves and those we care about.  That is what is most important right now.  Cancer is our ‘mommy’ of the zodiac.  Mothers like to tend to their young, to take care of their nests.

We take stock of what we have and what we still wish to accomplish.  This extends much farther than personal possessions, and is much more about the riches we possess within our selves, our souls.  The abundance inside of all of us, the golden nuggets that make us who we are.  We also look at the golden nuggets inside others as well, and point these things out to them.  This is what we all need right  now, what we all crave. Acceptance.  Praise. Love.

This is a time to go deep within and get ready for new beginnings.  This is a beautiful new moon with a soothing energy attached.  We feel more relaxed right now, perhaps even a bit lazy and tired.  Honor this feeling and listen to your body.  Dreams are more vivid as well, and you may wake up feeling more tired as a result.

*Both Mars and Mercury are also sitting in the sign of Cancer right alongside this new moon today, further enhancing our emotional juices.  Sensitivity is paramount right now, and some of us are much more poetic and weepy than usual. * Cough 😉

There is just something so natural about the moon when it’s in Cancer.  We feel alive, we feel more centered.  We are more in touch with our emotional sides, yes, but at the same time we are able to process more freely.  There’s less fear of judgment.

We crave togetherness, community.  Explore this, nurture this, tend to this.  Get your plans ready, as the next few months will not harness this bright and beautiful energy in the same way.

Under this New Moon, it is time to heal.

It is a wonderful time to do some inner-work.  To heal from the inside out.  Get in touch with your intuition as you should be feeling way more in tune at this time.  Cancer is no stranger to psychic impressions and that which is beneath the surface, the unconscious.  Use this time to really check-in with your higher self.  Are you expressing yourself authentically?  Are you honoring your needs?  Are you working towards your goals?  A goal?  Are you pleased with where you are?  

Remember, the sign of Cancer can be very defensive so other things to ask yourself at this time are: do I express my emotions in a healthy way so that others can understand me?  Or am I too defensive, perhaps explosive?  Really go within here, as again, this is where the real treasures reside.

Many of you write to me asking questions about how/which stones to work with, so I’ve included some below.  You’re welcome 😉

Some of my favorite stones to work with at this time of the Cancer New Moon are:

Calcite- for relaxation.  This stone is a pretty pale orange/yellow color, and helps to soothe our emotions, putting us in a more meditative state.  Hold it in the palm of your hand to truly feel the vibrations of this calming stone.

Crocoite- for creativity and passion.  This stone is typically a vibrant orange/red, also representative of our Sacral Chakra-the energy centre responsible for our sexuality, creative life force.  Use this stone to move towards your goals with renewed passion.

Citrine- (one of my staples, I love this stone).  This is a yellow/orange, sometimes gold-ish colored crystal.  This one is all about abundance and manifestation.  Always to be used under New Moon energy.

Azurite- this one is a multi-colored mineral looking ‘stone’- it’s several shades of deep blues and greens.  This one is representative of our intuition, deepening our psychic awareness.  This helps us get more in touch with our inner-compass, helping us to connect more to our heart centre and make decisions that are more in alignment with our true purpose.

*I also always recommend Clear Quartz for protection and purification, and Selenite for angelic protection and closer connection to spirt.   These two are standard*

Stay tuned, as throughout the rest of the summer, the lunar cycle is a little chaotic-consisting of intense and energetic eclipses and Mercury Retrograde just to name a few aspects.  As a result, there will not be this ‘chill’ feeling that we are experiencing right now believe me, so please, pay attention and seriously, enjoy this energy.  Bask in it, revel in it, and get those dreams ready!  Manifest and manifest extra-wisely under this new moon.

Happy Summer Solstice And Happy Birthday Cancer!

Happy Birthday Cancer!  It’s also ‘Officially’ Summer Today- So Happy Summer Solstice!

The Solstice happens today at 12:24 AM, EST.  This is our longest day of the year, and it’s the time when the Sun shines its brightest and moves right into the sign of Cancer.  The Summer Solstice represents a time of fresh starts and new beginnings.

This is a time of transformation.  Deep transformation- stepping into your truth and becoming your true, authentic self.  This does not always feel comfortable, so even though at this time we may be feeling ‘ready’ in several different areas, there still may be a level of fear attached.  We are all being asked to let go and trust.

sun

Today, 6/21, the Sun shifts from charismatic and lively Gemini into the warm and relaxing sign of Cancer.  The Sun will stay in Cancer until 7/22 .  This shift brings with it a sense of completion. Closing one chapter and finally being ready to write the next one.

*If your rising sign falls in Cancer, this bodes true for you as well.  If your Moon sign is Cancer, this is especially  for you as the moon is our heart and emotion in our chart, and Cancer is ruled by the moon- making you ultra sensitive!  You can find the rest of your chart by using a free service such as www.Astro.com.

The sign of  Cancer falls under the element of water.  The water signs of the zodiac are quite sensitive and mysterious, much like the ocean itself.  These signs are deep-they can either be refreshing, or they can drown you in their depths!  Security is very important to the water signs.  (Pisces and Scorpio are our other two Water signs).

Cancer is the sign of our soul and our emotional well-being.  These people feel more than they think, often leaving them feeling misunderstood.  Emotion rules logic most times with this sign.  As such, at this time of the year, we are likely feeling much more emotional and compassionate.

Cancer is warm, perceptive, protective and wait- oh yeah- sensitive!  Cancers are the nurturers of the zodiac.  They care fiercely about their ‘people’ and are very careful of others feelings, but are even more careful and protective of their own feelings.  When they are angry or feel slighted, this Crab retreats right back into its shell, likely not without striking you first though!

Cancer is a cardinal sign, meaning it’s the introductory sign to its season.  Summer.  The feeling under this zodiac sign is typically warm, calm and inviting.  We feel ‘chill’ under this sign and at home.  You may find yourself in fact, wanting to be nesting more under the sign of cancer than any other time of the year!

The Crab represents the sign of Cancer, and as such,  Cancers can be quite, well, crabby! They cannot really help this as they are ruled by the moon, after all!

Cancer is ruled by the Moon with its ever changing tides.  As the moon shifts into a different sign every two 1/2 days, so do a Cancers moods!  Yes, the crabs can be, and typically are, ever-so- moody.  Often vacillating from happy, to sad, to angry- all within moments!  They can get hurt very easily as well due to their hyper-sensitivity so tread lightly with the crabs in your life.

Strengths of this sign:  persuasive, imaginative, loyal, emotional, intuitive, sympathetic, artistic

Weaknesses of this sign: moody, pessimistic, insecure, manipulative (usually harmless to get their way), suspicious

Much like the sign of Cancer, under the time of Cancer we are forced to confront what does not work, and try to let go.  This is a difficult feat for most crabs, but necessary.

When the crab does get to the place where ‘enough is enough’, they are very done.  That is how we will feel under this Cancerian influence!  It’s time to clean house with those projects (this can include people) in our lives that we feel are no longer bearing fruit.  As hard as this can be, it is ever so necessary.  As we are all feeling more sensitive and in tune under the sign of cancer as well, (and lets not forget neptune retrograde) it’s important to remain as empathetic as possible not only to others, but most importantly, to ourselves!  Nurture yourself, as you cannot pour from an empty cup.

         In the Tarot, Cancer  rules our Major Arcana card- Number 7- ‘The Chariot’

chariot

Number Seven , also representative of our seventh month, July.  The time of Cancer.

The Chariot is moving, but moving at a controlled pace.  The Chariot knows that slow and steady wins the race.  In order to achieve full progress, you must not go full steam ahead at this time.  Take the time to move slowly, assess your surroundings, and be careful not to make any rash moves.  The end of a cycle is near, and a new turning point is about to begin.  Take the time to absorb everything while making big decisions and changes.  See the big picture as the universe is truly supporting you and wants you to succeed.

You are that much closer to achieving your goal(s), to getting what you want.  There might be a bit of a struggle to get there, you may have to fall down a few times, but you will get there!  Victory after some strife, uncertainties will lift.  Emotionally, all is well under the time of cancer- surrender and acceptance are the name of the game.

We are under some heavy times energetically, and a lot of you have been writing to me about how you are feeling, trying to process it all.  Just know that you are not losing it! There is a lot going on ‘out there’ and guess what?  It will and it does affect you on the soul level.  The more sensitive you are the more you will feel this!  Don’t hesitate to contact me if you feel you need another ‘tune-up’ or if you have questions.

Neptune- The Planet Of Intuition, The Mystical- She Goes Retrograde (Backwards) Today! What You Need To Know…

Good Morning My Friends,

Neptune will be retrograde from today, 6/16-11/22/17.  That’s a pretty decent amount of time (half the year): what you need to know….

nepppp

Ah, Neptune- the planet of ‘the mystic’.  Neptune rules the sign of Pisces and is inspirational, spiritual, psychically receptive, highly sensitive- subtle energies, what’s beneath the surface. However, there’s a lot of illusion and confusion with Neptune and it can feel quite still and ‘odd’ under this influence.

Important to mention:  most artists of all kinds and highly sensitive,  psychic people have prominent Neptune in their charts.  Neptune also rules the 12th house in astrology- the hidden house, the karmic house.  Mystical and magical- these people are visionaries and always possess some sort of artistic gift whether physically (i.e drawing, acting, painting) or psychically (tarot, astrology, reiki, spiritual counseling).

When Neptune is moving at it’s typical pace throughout the cosmos, we tend to see more clearly in most areas of life.  While there will be intervals where Neptune and her illusions are felt more strongly, for the most part, we are all functioning under some sort of reality (while it’s direct).  Now, when Neptune begins its retrograde (backwards) trek?  Think again.  We are under the spell beginning today!

We are all more open to the realm of intuition at this time.  Our psychic impressions are likely to be much more intense, dreams more vivid.  The more sensitive and empathic you are, the more you will notice this.  Keep a notebook next to your bed.  Write down all of your dreams during the retrograde period, as you will see in time when you look back, you were having premonitions.  Very common under Neptune Retrograde.  I could write a book on my dreams!

As Neptune rules the mystical side of life, that which cannot necessarily be seen but will always be felt, it is extremely important to pay close attention to all of the ‘signs’ that come across your path.  You will be receiving a lot of spiritual downloads,  a lot of synchronicity.   It’s a time to trust the information you are receiving.  A time to go within.  To Reflect.  To connect with spirit, pray, meditate.  Most importantly, trust the information you receive psychically.  It can and will feel ‘otherworldly’ at this time. Again, those that connect naturally will enjoy this energy as psychic energy is ramped up big-time with Neptune in this position.

During this time as our perceptions are more acute, meditation and grounding are essential so that you can stay rooted in your body and see the big picture- and see it clearly.  It’s extremely important to listen more to the ‘inner-voice’, the guidance of your soul (intuition) during this time.  Talk about what you are feeling, sensing and absorbing because this aspect of Neptune can really give already sensitive souls severe psychic overload.  

Remember heightened sensitivity can be both an asset and a liability!  

*Important to mention: if you feel you cannot talk about what you are experiencing with certain people for fear of judgement, than you are with the wrong people and it’s time to get real with yourself.

                               Our friend , ‘The Hanged Man’, is ruled by Neptune.

Another ‘symptom’ (HA 😉 ) of Neptune Retro is heightened paranoia.  When this happens, recognize you are likely over stimulated from the energy you are picking up, and that it’s time to go inward and recharge.  Make sure you are paying close attention to your intuitive downloads and impressions, but make sure you sit with and process everything before making any unfair assumptions!  Just being aware of the energy helps.  I have several hard neptune aspects in my personal chart so I am quite familiar with Neptunian energy, and owning it and working with it?  That is where the real magic begins.  Point being: work with this energy and not against it my friends.  

Neptune has a tendency to keep the rose-colored glasses on.  Don’t get led down a flowery path of promises and whispers- stick to the facts and again trust that inner compass!  It should be easier as our intuition is at an all time high.  During this time it is more natural to pick up that which is subtle and normally illusive.  This can be a gift, as long as you are awake and aware.  Keep your mind and your heart open, but also stay logical as it will be much easier to feel ‘duped’ under the Neptune Retrograde period.

One last thing: avoid all chemicals and addictive substances as much as possible under the Neptune Retrograde period.  Neptune rules addictions and boundary issues of all kinds, so pay close attention to these areas of your life now.  Connect to your spirituality.

As we are talking about boundaries and addictions that might be unhealthy, this also includes people!  If you are around very addictive personalities you are more likely to absorb and pick up their energies as well. Carry around some Black Tourmaline crystal pieces to keep your psychic boundaries protected.  (I always keep tourmaline on me)!  If someone(s) makes you feel bad, dims your light and lowers your energy, that is spirits way of letting you know it is time to pull back!  Listen and trust.  Neptune Retrograde is a bit of a weird time, and all we can really do is listen and trust.  

Stay calm, stay centered and stay true- stay in your light.

Neptune is retrograde from today 6/16 until 11/22/2017.  Almost a full five months-  please know we are all affected by this!
