Happy October! The Energy Of The Month Ahead…

Happy October & Rabbit Rabbit !

*’Rabbit Rabbit’ is supposedly an auspicious thing to say on the 1st of each month.  It is said to bring in good luck.  Hey, why not? 

October is my favorite month of the year, by far.  The weather, the change in the air, the smell of burnt leaves, Halloween, pumpkin and apple everything.  What’s not to love?

May October bring in blessings big and small, for all.

Tonight, at 7:30 PM on 1460 AM WVOX Radio, be sure to tune in to my radio show- ‘Get Grounded With Lisa’.  We are talking about the current energy and how it is affecting us all on the emotional, physical and spiritual level.

With me tonight is seven-time author and psychologist/transformational coach, Dr. William Jason O’Mara.  Together we will discuss the current cosmic craziness as well as grounding techniques to assist everyone at this time of intense change.  It will be an interesting show- you can listen live by using this link https://tunein.com/radio/WVOX-1460-s23608/

In a nutshell-October is a month where we review our past, leave it behind, and begin to move forward.

A few biggies that will impact us all- Jupiter, our planet of abundance and growth, of observation, leaves the sign of Libra and enters the sign of Scorpio.  Jupiter changes signs only once per year.

Pluto, the planet of transformation, death and rebirth, the underworld,  turns direct- finally.  This happens every six months, where Pluto changes directions.

Venus , the planet of love and money, will conjunct Mars , the planet of action and passion- right alongside a fiery Full Moon in Aries, and much much more….stay tuned to how all of this ‘up there’, will affect us ‘down here’.

Reading For The Week Ahead

Happy Monday,

Hope everyone had a lovely and somewhat relaxing weekend.

* This Thursday, 9/21, I am facilitating another “Journey Into The Tarot”, workshop in Eastchester, NY.  There are still some spots left!  If you are interested , please go here for more info. These workshops are a lot of fun, interactive and quite informative!

This weeks read is brought to you by Sandra Ann Taylor’s ‘Energy Oracle Deck’- intuited by yours truly.

Today I felt like avoiding the tarot and using an energy deck instead, but the messages carry just as much weight.

I’ve meditated, prayed and shuffled over these cards.

I have pulled: Caring Connections, The Fifth Chakra (Throat Chakra)- Archangel Gabriel, and Hostilities.

IMG_2304

This week is all about getting in touch, and staying in touch with those closest to our hearts.

This includes getting in touch, and checking in with , ourselves!

What are we doing ?  Where are we going?  Are we happy with our story line?  

If not, it’s time to re-write the current script.

With so many planets in Virgo right now, we are feeling very analytical and quite serious about putting our lives back in, or in, working order.  

Physically, mentally and spiritually.

Do not be afraid to ask those you care about for some assistance where you may need it.

Everyone is feeling a bit on edge.  It is easy to go into hermit mode under the energy this week, but in reality, there is safety to be found in numbers.  Stick with those you trust and you know have your back.

The week begins with the best of intentions.  We are coming off of some highly charged, energetic times, and we seek comfort in the familiar.

We feel ready for action, ready to get things moving.

As the week progresses, around Wednesday, our jovial spirits quickly spiral back to that which irritates us.

That which we wish we could avoid.

Tempers flare as we seek to tear apart anything or anyone that challenges us.  We are all on our own mission at this time, and some will have a personal agenda that they do not want challenged.

There is also a New Moon the 19th/20th, which has some emotional contradictions surfacing in all of us, adding to this energy.

Be mindful of challenging others beliefs this week as it can turn from love to hostility, quite quickly.

As we are under the influence of Virgo which is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind, words and communication- this will be displayed through our words.

Virgo can be blunt.  Virgo can cut like a sword with its words.

Be mindful mid-week about how you are verbalizing your thoughts as something you say can quckly bring about some animosity from someone in your camp.

Also be careful about what you put in writing, particularly having to do with emails, and especially email addresses that belong to another source- such as , a company email.

On the positive side, communication is ever so present.

Thursday/ Friday brings in a lot of  fluid communication, perhaps even clearing the air where needed.

Try to avoid being vague in your communication, yet at the same time be sure to articulate your words in a way that cannot be misconstrued into what others wish to hear.

In other words, be clear and truthful, but kind as well.  

Speak the truth but keep others level of emotional comprehension in mind.

We all accept and perceive information differently.

If there are things you need to say, or anything that needs to be put in writing, thursday/friday are good days for this.  These two days will have the throat chakra (communication) protected and a much more clear way of communicating will be present.

Less of a chance for misinterpretation as well.

While expressing yourselves this week, pay careful attention to the way in which you use your words.  Doing so can avoid uneccesary drama, particularly at work or your place of service.

Those signing any kind of document- wednesday-friday seems best for that.

All in all this week seems a little edgy but conducive for verbal communication.  Written communication will have more of a chance of miscommunication, so pay more attention to that.

Be present and be mindful and all should be well.

How Recent Solar Flares Are Affecting Us Physically And Emotionally

Everything is connected- I always say this.

I woke up pulled to write about this as I’ve noticed a lot of people that I have been working with and am in contact with, are experiencing physical, spiritual and emotional bursts of energy – and they are confused as to what is going on.

*Disclaimer- always see a medical professional before you assume what you are experiencing is not in fact, a medical issue.

We are in the mist of intense Solar Flares.  September 4th (last monday) is when we had the first burst.

What are Solar Flares?

From Wikipedia

A solar flare is a sudden flash of brightness observed near the Sun’s surface. It involves a very broad spectrum of emissions, requiring an energy release of up to 6 × 1025 joules of energy  (roughly the equivalent of 160,000,000,000 megatons of TNT… Flares are often, but not always, accompanied by a coronal mass ejection. The flare ejects clouds of electrons, ions, and atoms through the corona of the sun into space. These clouds typically reach Earth a day or two after the event.

We have just experienced the strongest Solar Flare in twelve (12) years!

sun

How do these Solar Flares Affect Us?

This space weather phenomenon can affect us emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Children and pets are very affected as well so please pay close attention to these little people and realize how much more sensitive and receptive they are to energy!  They don’t have any bias, they are simply pure and perfect.

Solar Flares when they occur (again, they began on 9/4 and as of 9/8 we were still experiencing bursts), can really affect us biologically.  As a result, we may feel as if we have lost our ability to cope as we keep spinning our wheels, rotating on our axis.

Just like the earth.

*Keep in mind, the affects are not always felt immediately, yet gradually and can intensify over a span of time potentially up to two months after the flares!

Our central nervous system can be affected, messing with our equilibrium.  We may feel off center, not right.

Our behavior may seem different as well.

What’s really happening is that from the higher-consciousness level, these flares serve to transform us on a cellular level.  We are energy, remember that!

As we shift and realign, we are compelled to break old patterns and make changes in our lives that will impact us profoundly for years to come.

If you follow astrology at all, then you know that along with all the planetary energy we have been experiencing, change is the name of the game.

Often this is felt more on the sub -conscious level, making it more of an internal shift. This can have our deepest fears coming up to the surface.

Below are some common symptoms that you may experience during a period of solar storm activity:

* A lot of these symptoms mimic the ascension A.K.A- ‘Spiritual Awakening’- process.   I will be posting about that again soon. 

  • feeling off’ kilter – not centered
  • feeling very overwhelmed, difficulty coping
  • dizzy spells/vertigo
  • headaches/migraines/pressure in head & face
  • high pitched ringing in ears
  • visual disturbances
  • increased sensitivity
  • heart flutters/palpitations
  • pressure in chest
  • anxiety and feeling jittery
  • nausea and stomach upset
  • hot flashes
  • sleep issues such as interrupted sleep, very little sleep
  • exhausted and lethargic
  • depressed and an overall feeling of despair
  • elevated blood pressure
  • stressed out & worried
  • vivid dreams, often stressful
  • brain fog
  • technology issues become more obvious as well

It is a process like anything else and the more you understand it, hopefully it will help you to cope.

So how to we deal with the potential human impact of the Solar Flares? 

Below are some suggestions to help you cope.

  • honor your body- rest when you need to
  • take salt baths
  • exercise- or whatever helps relieve your anxiety, do it
  • drink a lot of water- pure, filtered water preferably
  • eat healthy foods that nourish
  • watch your alcohol intake
  • get outside-nature is medicine
  • limit your time with negative people and avoid drama
  • spend time with people that make you laugh
  • trust that this is a real process and respect it-and yourself

I hope that this post has given you a sense of peace and understanding.

Full Moon In Sensitive Pisces Today….

Hi!

Important: if you enjoy my content and my insight, my readings, please join me at my new home on the web and sign up for my newsletter (it’s free). http://lisasalvatore.com/

Today, we have a watery Full Moon in the sign of Pisces.

This occurs at 3:02 AM EST.  So technically tomorrow.

We are all highly sensitive under the influence of this Full Moon.

We are more emotional, more weepy than normal, dreams are prophetic, psychic experiences enhanced.

*If you are a Pisces, a Pisces rising, or especially, a Pisces Moon expect to really feel the ripples of this Full Moon.

piscesmoon2

Neptune is also conjunct this Full Moon in Pisces, really confusing an already confusing time!

Remember- Neptune rules Pisces, the underworld.  Intuition, illusion, boundaries and confusion.  This is Neptune.

 

With a Full Moon in Pisces, the sign ruled by Neptune, we receive a double-dose of mysticism, of magic.

Our compassionate nature is enhanced.  We develop our spiritual gifts (or at least the desire is there to do so).

We release, we surrender.

We are also still coming off the throes of the Solar Eclipse that occurred on 8/21, lets not forget.  Everything is heightened.  The energy is still quite intense.

We are all exhausted.

Do not feel dejected if after the Solar Eclipse nothing has seemed to shift for you.  These shifts are often gradual, and you may not see them for awhile.  The Solar Eclipse was also a New Moon, a time to make plans for the future.

Emotions run high.  Intuition is sharp but with Neptune so prominent, be careful of intuition vs. paranoia, as it it will be very easy to switch over to the dark side due to fear.

Neptune and this Full Moon shine a light on our vices.  How we cope (or do not cope ) with our emotions and our issues.  Do you drink your problems away?  Drown your sorrows in a bag of Oreo cookies?  Smoke a pack of cigarettes?  

Really look at this.  If something needs to be corrected, now is the time to get started. Any unhealthy vice under Neptune’s influence can quickly become a problem so take care.

There is a lot of illusion going on right now.  It is time to cut through that and discern the wheat from the chafe in your life.  Make adjustments accordingly.

Saturn, the planet we refer to as the ‘Father’ has his hand in this watery Full Moon as well.  There is no room for escapism while Saturn is present.  He demands we do our karmic work no matter how difficult or frustrating.

Pisces (and Neptune) are all about the intangible, the underworld.  Opposing energy is at work here.

Saturn needs evidence while Neptune relies on hunches.

Saturn says ‘show me’.  Neptune says ‘trust me’.

We feel it, we sense it, but yet we cannot see it.  Trusting your own intuition is key.  That is what this Full Moon in Pisces is all about.  The dreams that we possess in our own heart and soul and taking ownership of our own abilities to find the truth.

The Sun in Virgo is asking us to show up and figure out the ways we wish to be of service.  Mr. serious Saturn right alongside does not let up , as we struggle between all of this opposing energy.

Especially if you are not used to just trusting your own instincts to lead you where you need to go.  

The most important thing to remember at this time is to listen to your heart.  To trust yourself.  To really go deep and figure out where you wish to be and how you wish to feel.  Pisces feels.  Honor your soul and your feelings. 

Full Moons are a time for release.  Release what is no longer working for you.  Emotions, people, places, situations.

release

Be sure to work with this magical Full Moon Energy.

It’s Virgo Season! Happy Birthday To The Virgins Of The Zodiac….

Today the Sun shifts from the warm fire of Leo into the sign of practicality and analytics- Virgo.

As the Sun shifts from Leo into Virgo, the celestial tone changes considerably, and there’s a slight calming effect.

Coming off the heat and passion of Leo (doesn’t it seem that Leo season was never ending?), we are ever-so-ready for the wise and practical energy of Virgo.

Where Leo pushes for intensity, Virgo says: “stop, slow down, analyze and maybe just maybe after we’ve analyzed everything to the end of the earth, we might take some action.”   These are our Virgo’s!

virgo 3

Virgo’s are introverts at heart.

Remember, you don’t necessarily have to be a Virgo to embody the essence of this sign. Anyplace in your chart where Virgo falls, you will likely possess this energy.  Your rising sign and Moon being the top two, but anywhere else as well.  

*For example- I am not a Virgo, but my Mars , Jupiter and Saturn all fall in Virgo- giving me quite a bit of this energy, and I definitely feel this energy in those areas of my chart!

Virgo falls under the element of Earth and is our second sign of the Earth signs. Therefore, Virgo’s are very grounded, but can be so grounded that fun gets pushed to the back burner!

Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, the mind.

This sign is intelligent with a sharp and inquisitive mind.

Virgo’s can be super sensitive but it takes a lot for them to truly feel and express their emotions, as they often intellectualize and analyze them frontwards and backwards before they will honor them.

Notice the word analyze comes up a a lot with this sign?

They are problem solvers.  They love a good mental challenge.  They are always willing to help others.

In fact Virgo’s typically feel the most useful when they are helping others with their own challenges, as it gives them a break from their own internal dialogue that never stops!

At their most positive, Virgo’s are wise, witty and well-spoken.  They are intelligent, practical and reliable. Very detail oriented and meticulous, they are great organizers. Virgo’s are very hard workers and are typically very accomplished.  They expect nothing less than the best from others and this goes for themselves as well.

At their most negative, they can be over-analytical, picky, and critical.  They can be obsessive as well to the point where it becomes a real problem and causes physical ailments, such as anxiety and heart palpitations!

Because they expect nothing but the best from themselves, they expect the same from others and often have too high of expectations.  They can also be cold, detached and aloof due to their analytical and earthy way of approaching emotions.

In the Tarot, our Virgo card is none other than, The Hermit– card number Nine (9) of The Major Arcana.

In numerology, ‘9’ is the number of the loner.  It is a solitary number, and as such often walks the path to enlightenment on it’s own.  Much like our Hermit, below.

*This card is from the Morgan Greer tarot deck*

HERMT

Under the time of Virgo, much like our Hermit, it’s time to walk our path.  Go within and ask yourself : “Am I living in my truth”?

Also, this is a time to get philisophical and rid ourselves of outdated patterns and beliefs that are no longer serving us.

If you have wanted to cultivate a spiritual practice, now is the time.  Meditate, pray, purify your Chakras.

 Be still, be present and listen to your intuition.

The Hermit knows what it feels like to walk the path to true enlightenment and lights his own torch along the way.

The path may twist and turn but ultimately, it will take us where we need to go.

Don’t be afraid to go deep and do your soul work.  This is the perfect time under Virgo(Hermit) season– plus we are still under several retrogrades including Virgo’s ruler- Mercury!

Due to the potent connection of this Mercury Retrograde to Mondays fateful eclipse, this Mercury cycle will give you great insights into what is standing in the way from the path to your purpose.

So this is a great time to be a ‘Hermit’, literally!

Don’t be afraid to go within.

Be still, be present, listen to your intuition.

Honor what you feel.

Say what you mean and mean what you say, but choose your thoughts and your words wisely.

Mercury Is Retrograde Along With Saturn, Pluto, Uranus And More! Reading For The Next Few Days…

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

It’s midweek, and I am finally getting this post out!  I have been having some technical difficulties-thank you Mercury Retrograde 😉

I meant to get this out Saturday, and then Monday, then  yesterday, but alas….I finally got it.

Hope you all are staying sane throughout this cosmic craziness!

The energy is wild right now, and this Mercury Retrograde is primed to be a surprising and wacky one.

Mercury turned retrograde this past Saturday, the 12th,  and stays this way for 23 days- stationing direct again on 9/5.

The effects of the retrograde are felt a bit longer as there are what we call ‘shadow’ days before and after the actual retrograde.

As long as you are aware (this is key) of the energy and how it affects us ‘down here’,  I truly feel it can take you to your most authentic place.

Let’s break this down a little further.

Mercury rules the mind.  The Sun rules the essence, the soul.

Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun when it’s direct- when it stations retrograde, it gets even closer to the Sun.

Mercury and the Sun have a very close relationship.

The way we talk to ourselves, the truths that live in our mind (Mercury)  become our reality (Sun) under the retrograde period!  Use your words and your thoughts wisely and keep them positive.

What we think is what we become.

Mind over matter.

Mercury purple

As I always say, use the Retrograde time to Reassess, Release, and Realign.

This is key- and expect the unexpected!

Pay attention to how and what you are communicating.  Slow down.

Keep in mind, Mercury is retrograde along with Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune. That is five planets backwards at the same time!  Five!  This is really slowing things down so have patience, this is key.

Let’s not forget the intense energy from the Solar Eclipse that passed on 8/7 and the Total Solar Eclipse that is to occur on 8/21.  We are right in between two very energetic and rare energetic flares, plus all of these retrogrades at the same time!

As above so below.  We feel this, make no mistake.

Important to mention- because Mercury is an inner Planet,  (along with Saturn as well ) we feel the affects on a more conscious level, more deeply.  As inner planets they move quickly and create quite a stir.

With Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, these are outer planets that move very slowly throughout the sky.

The effects of the outer planets are much more subtle.  They are still felt, but on a much more subconscious level.

Please watch the video below for more insight for the coming few days.  (I recorded this on Monday).

Lunar Eclipse/Full Moon in Aquarius Tomorrow…What This Means For Us

Happy Sunday!

The Lunar Eclipse happens tomorrow at 11:50 AM, in the sign of the independent and eccentric humanitarian- Aquarius.

Eclipses are not negative.

Regardless of what you hear, see and/or read, let me repeat: Eclipses are not negative and they always come in pairs.  There will always be a Solar Eclipse two weeks before or after a Lunar Eclipse.

*There’s a Solar Eclipse/New Moon in Leo on 8/21.

This eclipse tomorrow is a Lunar Eclipse- meaning-the Moon basically moves into the shadow of the earth.

Purple

Eclipses can seem scary because they tend to bring that which is hidden out into the light, and it might not always be positive.

Eclipses represent change, plain and simple.  Endings and beginnings take place at this time, and change is often resisted, but ultimately, it is inevitable and needed.

This a highly emotional time.  Energetic.  Intense.  Potent.

Don’t we all seem a little edgy, and well, cuckoo lately?  It’s this energy!

Venus, the planet that rules how and what we love and value, is in Cancer until 8/26. People are very emotional, and besides that, we are feeling and absorbing others emotions as well.

Eclipses tend to bring in a clean sweep and often with a turn of events we may not be expecting.  That can seem scary but remember: Uranus is retrograde as well as of 8/3, so expect the unexpected but also remember: Uranus will always leave you better than you are found!

One of my favorite sayings as of late is :

When something goes wrong in your life,  just yell “Plot Twist”!  And move on

This definitely defines the next couple of weeks!

The key to Eclipses is to note that they are typically indicative of turning points in our lives.  This can be both on an internal and external level.

A sense of fate surrounds eclipse energy and we really need to be as present and as centered as possible in order to work with this energy constructively.

A lot of important events in our lives take place on, around, or in between eclipses.

It is also important to mention that the signs the Eclipses happen in make a huge difference as well.

The Lunar Eclipse tomorrow is highlighting opposite signs- Leo and Aquarius.

The Sun is in Leo for this Eclipse while the Moon is opposing in Aquarius.

Leo loves to shine and be in the limelight- the word ‘royalty’ comes to mind with the sign of Leo.  Leo has the need to be seen and heard at all costs.

The Sun shines brightest in Leo-this sign is creative and this will highlight all of your unique talents and what makes you ‘you’.  We want to leave a legacy with Leo- we desire to be known for our gifts.

How will you handle this energy?  Will you show up and show off?  Allow your light to shine? 

The Sun does not shine so bright in the opposite sign of Aquarius.  Aquarius is more detached and more concerned with the collective rather than individual needs.  Leo is the North Node (where we are going) while Aquarius is the South Node (where we have been, the familiar, the past).

Aquarius likes to stick to the facts, that which makes sense.  Aquarius falls under the element of Air, meaning, the mind- everything must be intellectualized before it is expressed.

Will you stick with the tried and true, rationalize the emotion away?  Stick to the facts and not go into your heart and soul?

Obviously, these are two very different energies but the trick is to combine them both to get you to your most authentic self.

It will be very easy and comfortable to stay in the past, to feel the need to break free from the ties that bind yet feeling it might be easier and more beneficial to stay with the familiar.  This is the challenge under Eclipse energy: Where we have been (South Node) Vs. Where we are going  or where we desire to go (North Node).

At this time we should all be reevaluating our place in this world.  Where we fit in, where we feel we don’t fit in, our sense of purpose.  A lot of soul-searching at this time.

How we connect or disconnect with and from other people, places and groups.

There may be a disconnect between head and heart- again , emphasizing the Leo (fire & heart)/Aquarius (Air/Mind) polarity.

I suspect we will be hearing quite a bit over the next few weeks in regards to those of royalty and politics-(Leo).  It’s important to stay connected to that which is important, the heart center.   Controlling what goes on within because lets face it: we can’t really control what is going on without and under the Eclipse energy this will really be emphasized.

Tomorrow I will have a reading for the week ahead, so stay tuned.

Reading For The Week Ahead! 7/10-7/16 …Full Moon in Capricorn Energy….

Happy Sunday And Full Moon Blessings,

FYI I recorded this read first thing this morning, but due to technical difficulties, I’m just getting it out now. 😉

This Full Moon in Capricorn is a big one on the energetic plane.

We are edgy, ready for action yet feeling stuck, re-evaluating and really wanting to make changes.  Lots of push/pull and start/stop going on here!

This is due to this Moon being opposite Mars, our most active planet.  The need to transform and shake things up with intensity is due to planet Pluto conjunct this Full Moon.

Stay calm and walk away from arguments with others even if you know you stand to be ‘right’.  Let’s not forget that Chiron, the ‘wounded healer’ in astrology is also retrograde as of 7/1 and will stay there until 12/4, exacerbating all of our deepest wounds.

Keep doing your soul work and you will be fine.  You can only control what goes on within, not outside of you and most certainly not with others!  Do not get roped into any nonsense with others, as people are more likely to take their s^&* out on other people at this time.

Those that do not do their own soul work are always going to throw their crap onto others .Stay in your light and don’t allow that to happen to you, but more importantly, do not be that person!  Take the opportunity to go within and look at your trigger points rather than pointing your finger elsewhere.

It’s also a great time to transform into that which we know we are capable of.  Focus on your goals and stay determined.  Tell those closest to you how much you care.  Use this Full Moon energy to bestow your good thoughts onto others as well as onto yourself!

Enjoy the read below!  Bright and Happy Full Moon Blessings To All!

I’m off to do readings at a Full Moon gathering for some kick-ass women tonight :)

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.

cancercrab

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.

newmoon

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.

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’

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.
