The New Moon in Capricorn is approaching. Pay attention to anything that arises for you now especially that is trying to take form. Capricorn is about the long haul. The planning and the execution of what the soul longs for. Step into it.
We have many Planets in Capricorn now. The energy has been heavy to say the least. It is like standing on the edge of a cliff and it starts to pour, raining heavily upon you. But you feel a strength from the wind at your back and the beautiful landscape before you. It takes energy but something in you keeps your chest up open to the sky and your feet firmly planted on the ground. You know where you need to go. What you need to do. Can you commit?
All that has been arising lately with Jupiter and Mars so close in Scorpio is starting to reveal itself. The underlying desires that we seek to transform, and take back our power have been pushing us. Now through the stimulation of this Capricorn collection of Planets it is becoming more clear what must be done.
The work. It can be joyful if we allow for the deepest desires to emerge and we nurture those places, day by day. Write down a few things you want to grow during this New Moon at 6:16 PM PST/ 9:19 PM EST.
The Moon is in Libra Last Quarter Phase, which is one of the points we can feel a 'crisis'. As 1/2 of the Moon is lit up in the sky, we see a sharp line dividing the dark and the light. We may contemplate what has happened since the Full Moon, and feel the sense of winding down as we head towards New Moon.
With Moon in Libra, we can feel we want to keep the peace and push for compromise in our relationships. The Moon will be opposed by Uranus who is seeking freedom, so balancing our hearts and our independence may feel like a strong theme today.
Venus is aligning very closely with the Sun today joining the Capricorn Party. In fact, when she gets this close to the Sun, she becomes invisible. It can be referred to as a purification process, as she takes off all her protections and meets with the blazing ball of fire. Once purified, she reemerges in the sky, rising after the Sun. This can feel like an ending for us as she makes this transition or a need to let some things go that are not serving us. With her in Capricorn, this can be about integrity and what we are willing to commit to. Spend some time allowing Venus to speak to you about what is working in the way you are relating to yourself and others, and how you want to show up moving forward.
Mars and Jupiter have been dancing in the sky together recently. Mars was approaching Jupiter in Scorpio and on the 6th, jumped ahead of Mars forming a new phase relationship. Mars has been digging diligently into the depths of our psyches, trying to unearth the garbage that is starting to smell. It has been really important to ask yourself what are the underlying issues I may be have been unwilling to look at? How do I exercise the right use of my power and will? With Jupiter hanging tight, all of this energy has been expanded. In it's lower expression, we may have found ourselves projecting onto another. We all know that takes the lens off of our issues, however it is never a cure for what ails us. As Mars moves into a beginning phase from Jupiter, we can ignite our personal power, and make conscious choice to use our will towards what we want to transform in our lives.
To truth and committing to your path,
TTTaurus Moon today
After the rush of fire from the Aries Moon, the Earthly Taurus Moon takes a breath and calms itself. It wants to root itself into the soil, feel the stability, and take in it's surroundings, slowly and steadily. For Taurus can be likened to a turtle, rushing is not the objective, but rather proceeding at a consistent pace.
The Moon finds itself in contact with Jupiter and Mars who are currently in Scorpio, the opposite sign of Taurus. This morning you could see the beautiful conjunction of these 2 Planets above. Scorpio, a water sign, likes to submerge in deep, still water, engaging with what lies beneath the surface. It seeks to gather clues as to what is truly at play. We may find that we want dig a little deeper into situations right now.
With Neptune supporting the investigation, we are warned to not let ourselves get lost or confused. Mercury in fiery Sagittarius is in with tension to Neptune, which could cause us to get carried away in our heads.
The stellium (4 Planets) in Capricorn asks us to get to it, whatever we have been putting off , it is time to get serious. Capricorn lends a hand to the Moon to stay the course, breathe, and keep moving.
When the going gets tough, BREATHE, and notice what is right in front of you. The FULL Moon will be here on New Years Day.
In the wee hours this morning, the Moon made a square aspect to the Sun creating "First Quarter Moon". When we see squares or 90 degree angles of one planet to another, it creates a tension, a turning point, a crisis. Visually as one gazes at the Moon, you can see it is split right in half, one half illuminated and the other half in the darkness.
For us as individuals this creates a feeling of unrest, a decision or a choice point is prodding us. We can see what has come to fruition since the New Moon, and feel it is time to get our "ducks in order" for the Full Moon in a week.
We find many Planets in Capricorn now. Saturn, Venus, Pluto, and the Sun are all gathering together in the sign that does not "suffer fools gladly". Some may call it the boss of the zodiac or the authority, for this is the 3rd representation of Earth, following Taurus and Virgo. Once it arrives at Capricorn, the Earth element contains wisdom.
We may experience this energy as it is time to stand up, find your backbone, let go of the excuses and carve the gemstone. No matter the difficulty, Capricorn demands commitment and progress, effort, and resilience. The mountain top will not suddenly arrive at your doorstep without strength and conviction to reach the peak. It may be hard, and in that challenge, one finds their backbone, the abilities that may lay buried if not pushed to test the limits. Feeling exhausted? Feeling like you need to keep going, yet, you are tired? The wisdom is held in staying the course, one step at at time, to finally reach the pinnacle.
With the Moon in Aries, we can summon the warrior, the fighter to push through the tension. Aries is fire and when ignited will unleash an unstoppable force. It is in our best interest to channel that itch, that angst, into something constructive.
Later today, the Moon will form a tension with Pluto, the ruler of the unconscious. Whatever is revealed to you or seems to nag at you could point to something deeper than the surface. Hold your tongue and go within, leaning into the strength of the Capricorn's fortitude.
To a well traveled and liberating journey!
This sign has the most syllables of any other sign in the zodiac. For this reason, some prefer to say "SAG". What is interesting about this is that Sagittarius is known for seeing the glass half full, the optimism is absolutely contagious with this sign. For the essence of Sagittarius is to believe, believe that the truth or the knowledge one seeks lies just over the horizon, just over the rainbow. With this vision, Sagittarius prompts us to explore, to follow one's inspiration, to navigate uncharted territory.
This can be likened to a child who is in anticipation of Christmas. Christmas has many myths and icons where one believes that a portly man wearing a red suit flys through the sky and comes down a chimney with just what you wished for. We all know the story. Children embrace this "make believe" story and it ignites a fire within. Conjuring up dreams and fantasies of just what Santa will bring.
What is your vision? When we come in contact with our vision, we come into contact with our soul's desires. Our soul has yearnings that want to be fulfilled during this lifetime. We know the ego has it's own plans and schemes, however, if we let down that facade and enter the imaginal realm, we can explore our ultimate wishes.
In order to access the soul, we are encouraged to relax and enter a calm environment. If that is available to you by lying down , listening to music, going outside- do whatever takes you into a space of openness. Listen to your breath and let your imagination guide you. Close your eyes and imagine yourself walking down a road, what does the road look like? What do you see, what do you smell, is anyone with you? Keep following the path, where are you going? Take yourself to the place of your ideal home, how does it appear, what does it look like? Who is there? What is inside and outside the home? How do you feel? What do you find yourself doing? What is going on in your life?
Take a few moments to jot down what you see and feel in this vision. Focus on what you truly want and make a vow to yourself to keep that near and dear to your heart as we embark on the New Year. Make a pact to honor your heart's desire and keep your vision with you.
With this New Moon at 26 degrees Sagittarius, we all have an opportunity to dream a little dream. To plant that seed of what we envision for ourselves. What would you put on your Santa wish list?
Lights out! Under New Moon we cannot see the Moon in the sky as it connects so closely to the Sun casting no reflection. As the Moon collides with the Sun’s essence, it becomes invisible.
This is the beginning of the 28 day lunar cycle and our opportunity to plant our seeds of intention in the ground.
What would be appropriate seeds for YOU to plant under a Scorpio New Moon?
This Moon brings an opportunity to integrate ‘less than pretty’ parts of ourselves. Scorpio is an intense sign that seeks the richness and depth of transformative experiences. This sign is tasked with integrating the shadow. The shadow being the parts of ourselves we may not be proud of or parts of ourselves that are less conscious. Plunging into the muck or toxic debris, Scorpio feels alive as it searches for the jewels worth saving, and accepts the parts of self that are not so pretty. Then, like the Phoenix, Scorpio soars out of the ashes and rubble, to fly high into the sky empowered and fulfilled.
What do we keep hidden and buried, hoping it will disappear? How might we face that quality of ourselves and invite it to the table?
For example, Scorpio can be a jealous sign and jealousy typically arises when we compare ourselves to others. In taking an honest look at all that of our unique gifts and accepting them, we can choose to transform the jealousy into deeper awareness of our own talents.
So take a moment to drop in, meditate, walk in nature, whatever allows you to unplug from the day and reach into yourself. Find any areas that you are holding shame, insecurity, jealousy, disempowerment or any part of yourself that you may keep buried or hidden, and have an honest dialogue. All of it is us and it is all okay.
Set some intentions in how you would like to be a friend to the less than pretty parts, and how you want to move forward to integrate theses qualities.
We need the shadow just as we need the dark of the Moon.
“Only in the darkness can you see the stars.” ― Martin Luther King Jr.
Libra is the sign of balance and couldn’t we all use a bit of that lately? What is fair and just anymore? As the sign associated with the Scales of Justice, striving towards equality is always the end goal. While trying to achieve that middle position or balance point may seem like a cake walk, it is far from that.
Let’s say you have are invited to a meeting and are asked to be the negotiator and make sure everyone is happy. You begin the meeting and you listen to each person take a turn and express their views on the new elevator music. As you can imagine, quite quickly you would notice some people were happy with the new melodies, while others liked some of the music, and others wanted to avoid the elevators entirely now. Getting everyone to agree on the type of music would take some time to figure out what appeals to most people. Libra would be one of the best signs to manage this task.
There is tension.
There is a desire to get to calm or at least immerse oneself in a soothing environment.
And along comes Uranus in Aries opposing the Moon. Uranus is the wild card of the zodiac and represents individuality and authenticity. Aries is the Warrior archetype. Warriors are strong and steady and willing to take risks to be victorious. Social norms, social graces and “should” or “don’t upset the applecart” are not welcomed by Uranus. Uranus wants to champion being unique and chooses to challenges the status quo by rolling instead of spinning on its axis.
We have our feelings represented by the Libran Moon. The Moon wants peace and balance and would, therefore, have a tendency to be polite and accommodating. Uranus is going head to head opposing this Moon asking for rebellion and courage, a call to awaken the trailblazer. The Moon is not looking for a fight and yet, Uranus feels passionate about being true to oneself, no matter how much you stand apart from the crowd. We may feel this turmoil showing up in our relationships- how much do I keep the peace and an open ear versus how much do I fight to stay true to my individual nature?
Jupiter and Mercury are nearby in Scorpio. As Jupiter expands whatever it touches and Mercury is the communication station, we may be inclined towards getting really raw and real with our thoughts. Getting to the bottom of those relationship issues may prove to be a path you find yourself traversing. Scorpio is no BS. So, if you decide to engage in conversations, be forewarned that skirting around issues may not be tolerated at this time. You may get called on your stuff. If you are up for the intensity, it is a great time to reach out for a deeper connection.
As always on New Moon, this is a time to set an intention that will come to fruition under the Full Moon. The Full Moon will be in Taurus in 2 weeks.
Some ideas to ponder while setting your intentions. Written words are powerful.

Jupiter leaves the land of Libra and enters the realm of Scorpio on October 10th. Jupiter, the largest Planet in the Solar System besides the Sun expands whatever it touches. Jupiter entered Libra last September. In Libra, the focus would have been about balance. Balance and keeping the peace whenever possible are Libra’s aims. Libra doesn’t reach balance easily, for it is always aware of both sides of a situation. Sometimes with knowing both sides and being able to see both perspectives leads one to indecision, the shadow side of Libra. In essence, the past year would have ideally been about compromise and finding an equal playing field in our relationships, pushing to come to an understanding of those in our lives and forge alliances.
Now Jupiter enters the world of the Scorpion. This position is not for the faint of heart, for Scorpio has moved past the pleasantries and façade of Libra to an initiative which desires truth at all costs. Pussyfooting around a topic or agenda is not Scorpio’s forte. Reality no matter how ugly it is best out in the open, not denied, but rather relish in all aspects of life- the good, the bad, the ugly. This is what will make Jupiter in Scorpio happy- embracing the totality of human existence- the dark and the light. Scorpio taps into the unconscious realms. Scorpio knows that life is precious and powerful- for its power animal, the Scorpion, carries venom that can take a life. ‘Sex, birth, death’ are all ruled by Scorpio- the entrance and exit of life.
The primal essence of Scorpio is transformation through awareness of the unconscious. It believes that embracing all aspects of self allows one to ultimately rise, like a Phoenix, and rise out of the ashes. It is a powerful sign to say the least. In intimate affairs, it wants to engage with the other very deeply, to ignite that sense of raw human passion and connection. It is not the act of sex per se, but the deeper engagement of merging two souls. When the armor and shields have been cast aside and the partners are open emotionally and psychologically, trusting and completely vulnerable, Scorpio will feel alive.
Are we willing to do this? Are we willing to be unguarded and transparent? Are we willing to engage in the more uncomfortable conversations in order to be truthful and real? Will we be ready for the truth at all costs? Are we ready to look at our less than pretty parts of ourselves and invite them to the table? Are we willing to let down our protections and be vulnerable? Are we willing to take our power back?

With a full Moon in Aries at 11:39 AM Pacific Time, it is time to develop COURAGE. Aries is the sign that is dumb enough to take that leap into the unknown. Dumb is perhaps not the right word as that implies stupidity and there is nothing lacking in intelligence here. What can be lacking are all the forethought and the worry about how things may go if you TAKE a RISK.
I recently had the experience of planning for a new adventure, where I was going to be meeting new people, sleeping in a new location, and studying a new method of personal growth. I was nervous as the date approached thinking of all the things that could go wrong and trying to prepare for something I knew only a little bit about. I planned and planned, trying to make sure it all went well. In the end, I needed to let go and have faith. There was no way to be completely ready for the unknown, and at some point I needed to board the plane. And so I did. I put one foot in front of the other and walked into the adventure.
And what happened? Well, I met some great people; I learned that all the things I was so worried about did not come to fruition. I learned that taking a chance and putting myself out there paid off as I had a wonderful time and made some great connections. I challenged my own comfort zone and this allowed me to feel better, and make some new friendships. What part of you is asking you to stand up and take a risk, show your courage?
Aries: While relationships seem front and center now, you are more eager than ever to strike a balance. As you aim your arrows towards daily routines and health, you feel that taking care of yourself is where it all begins.
Taurus: Getting the simple things in life in order seems to be easily workable right now for you. Keep with those routines as they will help you in the long run as all Bull’s know. Dreams become the expression of your emotions this week and drifting and imagining or “spacing out” are really compelling. Embrace the moments to just inhale.
Gemini: Creativity and play are at the forefront now…it is a good time for you to follow your heart. If you allow yourself to open up your imagination, let whatever arises peak your insatiable curiosity. Make a vow to stay with it, and not get distracted.
Cancer: Home is where the heart is and as the sign associated with the Great Mother- family is always high on the priority list. Be it your family of origin or your chosen family, you love those close to you. Talking about what could improve in your relationships seems to go well if you all stay curious.
Leo: You may find yourself chatting with friends and coming up with ways to be more resourceful or improve your skills. You may come together and make a plan of action for what you would do in case of an emergency. Communicating in ‘anyway you can’ will be helpful right now, even in small acts like mailing a postcard to your Aunt Betty.
Virgo: Lighten up if you can and try to breathe whenever you start to get ahead of yourself. It is all about you right now and you don’t need to be reminded that self-love is where it all begins. Remind yourself that not everything has to be seen to be believed, some things can be felt in the passion of the heart.
Libra: While striving for balance seems to be the never-ending story, remember you are the director of your own play, ‘truth be told’. There is such a desire to be brave and courageous in love, and all the while maintaining your equilibrium and not losing yourself in the process is the challenge.
Scorpio: Getting out there and bringing together groups seems to fulfill your desire to make a difference. In your heart you seek to be playful and less serious, yet always keeping your eyes on your long range goals and dreams.
Sagittarius: Although not typically the case, there is a bit of a serious tone to you lately. You feel the impulse to really master something and put those childhood wounds behind you. If you can commit to showing up and putting some order into the chaos, the skies the limit!
Capricorn: Right when you felt you had it all worked out, a new idea develops. You feel this is the time to look at things from a new perspective. Enrolling in that class you have been considering may just be the spark that ignites a new passion.
Aquarius: Figuring out how to make lasting changes by taking a deep look at what lies under the covers and tucked away in the closets feels like the right move now. You are eager to get to the bottom of things even if it seems uncomfortable.
Pisces: Self/other, self/other, where to draw the line? As a sign that specializes in permeability and no boundaries, this can cause some questions to arise. What is it that I need to take responsibility for? Listening to the voices that guide you to the next practical step are what are most needed now.
The Sun has recently entered Leo and will meet up with the Moon at 0 degrees. A New Moon is always a beginning and 0 degrees is also a starting point, emphasizing the new even more. This Moon is in the sign of Leo- the King, the Performer, the Artist, the Child. This is the archetype motivated to perform from the intuitive, creative place inside us. Without a lot of consideration and contemplation, it responds to the fires brewing within. After building on the courage of Aries, Leo lights up the room like a ray of sunshine. It is likened to the energy of a child that is reliant upon the moment and the unfiltered expression of what arises. Children’s comments and minds defy rational logic sometimes. When a small child sits down to draw, they say things like “I am going to draw a masterpiece”. The sky is the limit with Leo. This is how we shine our light, our creative essence is through the lens of Leo.
Additional characters include Mars who recently transitioned into Leo. Mars at 1 degree will be pumping up the intentions we set around this New Moon. Mars wants to really allow for the seed to be pollinated and fertilized making this an extra potent New Moon.
Uranus will be influencing the Moon pushing it in the direction of courage. It chides the Moon to ‘let go of fear, and what others think’, ‘ARISE’! Uranus is the wildcard and in the final degrees of Aries, it has had it with waiting. JUST DO IT already!
Mercury is trying to help us to figure out what is our creative passion. As it sits in Leo, it wants us to draw in the creative ideas and the playful ways of communicating. BE in the MOMENT.
For this New Moon in Leo, we should take some quiet time to allow what needs to arise come in. As we create from the dark Moon, allowing any and all possibility, we can keep our sights on the Sun and what it wants to tell us. How can we shine ever so brighter? What is yearning to express in us? What comes up for you when you think of your most natural state? What were your favorite games or things to do as a child?
Enter the land of make believe, and allow whatever wants to come forward emerge, without restriction and logic. Tap into childish joy and creation!
Just shortly after the Moon rises this evening, the Moon will be in 100% illumination or directly opposite the Sun by degree. Not every Full Moon is this way, for it is exactly opposite the Sun on the day of Full Moon, however it could occur in the morning or at any other time that day. Why do we care? Well perhaps we don’t, but it strikes me right off the bat as unique. I always photograph the Full Moon rising and don’t see it becoming exact just after rise very often. This will guarantee 100% illumination at rise, not 99.8% or whatever. Who might care about this? CAPRICORNS!
In the theme of Capricorn, it makes perfect sense as Capricorn is about mastery and perfection. It is a beautiful, if not seemingly orchestrated performance for as the Full Moon rises gloriously in the night sky, it is at its most precise opposition. Capricorn couldn’t have planned it any better.
Well, in saying that, I see that Pluto will be a degree away from the Full Moon at 18 degrees Capricorn. Whenever Pluto is on the scene, we take a pause. Pluto is not known for frivolity, but rather the nickname ‘Lord of the Underworld’ should start to build some images. This Planet was discovered in the 1930’s when Freud was just starting to talk about the unconscious mind. As above, so below- the psychological breakthroughs of the time seem to mimic the discovery of a Planet that WANTS to get to the core of ROOT of our emotional psychology. In doing so, of course, it must address the dark and the light, the shadow and the sunshine to see the root WHOLE ness. This awareness of truth and acceptance of all parts of self, rather than shame and avoidance, is one way to heal the scars. When left to their own devices these scars may result in a type of Groundhog Day repetition until recognized and integrated.
Under a Capricorn Moon, we are looking at how we are responsible, our inner authority, our judgement of self and other, and how we hold that role with ourselves. It can also arise issues with the Father archetype and how we hold that in our lives today. With Pluto in the mix, we kicked it up a notch to delve into the uncomfortable shadowy places to purge that which does not serve us anymore. Pluto- the Great Transformer!
In addition, the Sun in Cancer who is ready to squeal and cry if prompted, is hanging out with Mars. Yes, Mars, the God of War. Does this sound treacherous? IT IS. But do not fear, this passion play is where we find the transformation and change that we all crave, as the raw emotions that need to come forward may find themselves at our doorstep right now. LET it OUT, cry, whatever way to just go deeper into what is coming up. If at all possible, stay in the heart, try not to put a story around it all. Just let it flow knowing this is the opportunity to release it.
If we look to the ruler of Capricorn, we find Saturn aka the Lord of Karma and Father Time. Currently sitting in Sagittarius, this is the sign of the Gypsy and the Philosopher. Sagittarius thrives in the exploration of ‘life as an unfolding mystery’ with its motto “GO BIG or GO HOME”. Sag pushes the optimistic envelope at all costs. It seeks the truth and the formation of a coalescing strategy that allows it to arrive at some level of understanding. So we may have been asking ourselves questions as of late, that are trying to put the pieces to the puzzle of life together. What do we believe? What do we really stand for? What do we want to build? Saturn is in “retrograde” motion so it is about going within to discover these truths until it goes direct near the eclipse in August. We can allow the big dreams to arise right now, and make plans to enact them starting at the end of August. In preparation, we can clear out any old hurts that need purging under the gift of this FULL Moon.
Jupiter in Libra, the ruler of Sagittarius, squares off the SUN and MOON requesting that things be fair and equal, in efforts to keep some semblance of peace. Blowups never seem to get you where you need to go, so try to watch out for what may be bubbling up in you and needs to stay with you and not cast onto the nearest other.
For a more personal look at themes arising for you based on your birth time and chart, consider a reading.
New Moon in Cancer on 6/23/2017 at 7:30 PM
Cancer is the 1st emotional sign we find on the zodiac wheel. We move from Fire/Aries, Earth/Taurus, Air/Gemini, to arrive at the 4th sign- Water/ Cancer. It is water in liquid form, flowing and ebbing with the tides. The animal is the Crab, who has the sweetest, tender inside, and a hard calcified shell on the outside. This shell is in constant rhythm with nature, and can completely fall away when it has been outgrown. “E Motion” implies movement and flow with “motion” and that does describe some of the quality of our emotions, they vacillate, arise and fall, shift and turn. From this pure, raw emotion, we find the Mother Archetype. In our greatest vulnerabilities in youth, when we cannot survive on our own, it is Mother who protects and nurtures us. The heart connects in Cancer, it FEELS.
With a New Moon in Cancer, it is a blank slate from which to set your intentions to manifest at FULL Moon. In the theme of Cancer, we can look at how we mother and nurture ourselves. How we might put up a protective shell when we feel vulnerable or ‘scuttle’ away like a crab. We may want to consider how we can allow ourselves to embrace our feelings, to trust in the flow, and use the power of Cancer to stay emotionally present. Find the house this falls in your birth chart to find where you are being asked to open, to let in, and feel into as purely and with raw intuition to what is being seeded. Free charts can be found at astro.com.
Cancer rules the Moon so this is a great time to honor the Moon that guides us every day.
Last Quarter Moon in Pisces 6/17/17
As the Moon forms a 90 degree angle or “SQUARE” to the Sun, we find the illumination of the Moon is partly lit now. Each night it is lit up less and less as the Moon heads towards New Moon. During Last Quarter, we see ½ of what we did at FULL, reminding us that the harvest has bloomed; parts are dying away and returning to the dark. At this time in the journey of the Moon, we are in between FULL and NEW. We can see what flourished at FULL in what we harvested, but it starts to lose that sweetness, that punch, found at FULL. The harvest is still alive, but parts are starting to decay. We have a sense that we are preparing for a new beginning as things die off, so we turn in and review the journey in preparation of releasing and seeding new life.
This Moon meets up with Chiron in Pisces. Chiron is the Centaur often nicknamed the “Wounded Healer”. He had a wound that would not heal. Through working with this type of pain and irritation, and arriving at acceptance, Chiron learned that through healing himself, he could help others. With the energy of Pisces, that seeks to dissolve all boundaries, live in the present moment, and connect with everything, we may be feeling our wounding and also the wounds of everyone and everything. Coming from this place of 'interconnectedness' and the acceptance of wounds, we develop compassion for ourselves and others. With heartfelt compassion, we can heal ourselves and create space for others to heal. Releasing the expectation that we should be ‘perfect’ embraces the reality of human existence, and growth.
Naturally, when the Moon and Sun are in ‘hard’ aspect to each other, there is a friction between the head or ego (Sun) and the Moon (Heart). We are advised to listen to both, knowing that the deeper we can open to our emotional feelings, we can become more integrated in how we identify (Sun). From this point of emotional awareness and contemplation, we can let go of what does not serve us, have gratitude for the journey and prepare for the New Moon in Cancer on June 23rd.
