New Moon Eclipse in Cancer, 4:41:38 pm, 21st!
New Moon eclipse at 0 deg Cancer, also falls on the Solstice (Sun’s ingress into Cancer and the longest day of the year). This is a new beginning with a lot of energy. It’s an eclipse, a wild card energy, I would put off any planned new beginnings as you would normally do with a new moon, eclipses are kinda doing it for you. Like I said it’s the wild card and it’s unknown, only the cosmos or universe knows. It’s the 2nd in 3 eclipse, and you never really know what this change is about and may not really know for sure to start off with, it can take up to 6 months for you to see or be in the change. Saturn is timing as well, patience, endurance and discipline maybe your greatest allies at this time to whatever is happening in your life, with this you find strength within(spiritual).
It’s in the sign of Cancer areas of home, family, safety, security, comfort, food and emotional needs. I also see cancer as the most inner private emotional self (heart), will play apart for this highly energized eclipse.
Saturn in Aquarius is in a quincunx or inconjunct to this eclipse, a quincunx is incompatible connection it’s difficult to understand and adjustments are needed, somehow the connection needs to be integrated. We all know Saturn restricts, limits, slows you down plus it’s rules or authority. It may be a slow start, a holding back of emotions or needs, for some it’s being cautious about a new start. Integrating what you need or want (Sun/Moon) and what you have to do (Saturn) – Freedom & Restrictions, this is why it’s best to be patient, persevere, be responsible.
With 5 planet Rx, nothing is moving fast, more about the inner journey, pausing, proceeding slowly and going over areas again, doing the past before you can do the future. Venus goes direct on the 25th, here some of what you want or need may start to be addressed.
Like always go check out your own birth chart for more information about where this will impact you the most.
Blessing under this Eclipse and Solstice.
The New Moon in Gemini has aspects to Saturn, Neptune, Mercury and Venus. It’s an air moon, ruler is Mercury, which is conjunct Venus in Gemini. What’s Gemini communication, ideas, choices and information add desire, attraction or longing thrown in (Venus).
Sun/Moon trine Saturn Rx in Aquarius, any new information, news, messages or ideas are grounded and practical, are clear, sure and straightforward. But the Venus/Mercury square to Neptune, makes it foggy. Neptune can draw you in, you may even get lost in an idea or thought or attraction. Don’t lose sight of what is real, what is sure, stick to a rule or structure, go back to Saturn, stay grounded, be practical and mature.
Trying to pin things into place at the New Moon will be slippery. There will be points of clarity or signs along the way which will let you know what direction to go or choice to make. I guess stay open and flexible, ask questions if any confusion or doubt arises. Be discerning as much as you can and think about all the information that you have on hand until it all becomes clear.
As always know where this full moon is happening in Your birth chart for a deeper understanding about what’s happening for you.
This new moon in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius, brings in tension, an edge to the energy, it may involve a new set of rules or responsibilities, feelings of frustration around delays or restriction comes with it. It’s a waiting game while trying to manifest this new start (it’s about the long term changes) under this Taurus new moon be patient, dig in and do what you have to do, be resourceful and use the resource you have while you wait.
Don’t over complicate it, (even though it’s all too complicated), keep it simple as much as you can. It’s all about the waiting and what you do in that time. Do the Taurus thing go slow, be steady and sturdy, eat the food you love, sleep, pamper, nourish and nurture yourself, and while you have the time, go look at what really matters to you, what really do you value(Taurus) in areas of money, love, where you put your thoughts, time and energy. Don’t waste your time or energy on things that know longer bring you joy, value and real meaning to your life. You don’t want to use your future energy up now on things that no longer bring value or joy. Plus what do you want to take into the future with you?
Sun and Moon both meet up with Uranus after the new moon, this can bring in some form of liberation around restriction, a burst of energy or information that lightens things up. It is Uranus so it can be delivered quickly or jarring and maybe a surprise, so just watch out for this. Remember to stay grounded and keep it real.
Saturn rewards all the hard work that you do, but you are going to have to wait for the solid, secure, structure(Taurus) to be put in place. You may find the Taurus season of April-May things solidify. It’s a start, now you patiently wait.
This new moon in Aries conjunct Chiron, square the nodes is a new beginning, it may be painful and it will hurt (chiron) also a turning point between the past and future.
This new moon is about your courage to keep moving beyond this place you’re now facing, it will take all of your inner resources, nerve, will and confidence to move into the new beginnings as the old falls down. Feel it, heal it, work with all the tools/resources you have to keep you healthy, grounded and safe, it’s your inner well of courage that will get you there. Stay present in the moment, focus on the now, face what’s right in front of you.
Chiron conjuncts this new moon, feeling vulnerable, pain/wounded, Chiron being in Aries makes it proactive, the only way to work with Chiron is to heal what hurts. The more you work with the pain you discover the gifts of your healing, which brings in strength, wisdom and empowers you. This is Chiron gift.
Were moving into new territory with the square to the nodes, past and future, a choice is upon you, a turning point. South node (past) in Capricorn, structures, rules, tradition, the known, go North to Cancer (future), which is emotional stability and security, feeling safe. Check in with what’s inside of you, how much courage, trust, strength, self belief, self confidence do you have. Do you know or think you can make it without the old structures? It’s an Aries moon, you just have too, even if it feels unknown, uncomfortable and you feel vulnerable, which is part of the north nodes journey.
Be patient, Stay focused
Act instinctively, Act consciously
Be Awake and Aware
Find a Quiet Place and get Calm
New Moon in Pisces!
In general, new moons are about a beginning of something, this one may involve an ending, putting something to rest, letting go and surrendering. The Sun and Moon are conjunct to Mercury Rx, what have you been thinking about, what’s going on in your head, what are you communicating to yourself about or what’s stuck in your head that you keep going over? The thoughts you’re having may help with the beginning which is also the end. Another way is to be open, receptive and intuitive to help you find the beginning and the end.
Either, get out of your head and go into feeling or get in your head and pay attention to what is going on in there. Listen and feel, will lead to knowing. Keep in mind that this is a Pisces new moon, make sure that it’s all still rooted into reality, don’t go into delusion or illusion, sand castle in the sky mode, hopefully the earth bond energies will keep you grounded.
Mars in Capricorn is harmoniously connecting to this moon, if there’s any action or way to go, Mars helps you by showing you the way or what to do. It may come in a thought, an intuitive feeling, a deep knowing. You may find that this is a way through Moon, that get’s you out of a place, situation, something that’s been hanging around since December. Being a Pisces moon, there may be a surrendering of something, handing it over, relaxing into what is.
Trust in what you feel.
Uranus in Taurus, helping you to go forward into the new future, helping with any changes that you have been going through or that are happening. Both are in earth signs offering support and stability which helps you to build. Which is what we are all doing, building a new identity, life and world. Nice time to leave some things behind.
It’s about the way forward, this new moon is highlighting that you can only go that way, no going back, no matter how much you would like to. Big shifts and changes you have been going through.
The Pisces leads us to surrender to our life now, it’s different, yes, you’ve changed, yes and it’s time to be open and receptive to the new life that is.
Pisces is the end of the road.
Mercury is Rx, so the road my be a meandering and a winding one, so, it might take a while for the momentum to build.
This New Moon(15 deg of Sagittarius) @ 5:20 pm squares a Mars/Neptune conjunction in Pisces.
Sagittarius: (religion, faith, belief, journey)
Pisces: (spirituality, trust, ideal, dreams)
New Moon in Sagittarius – abundance, prosperity, fun, adventure, travel, stimulation. Some may be seeking more knowledge, wisdom, understanding and meaning to your life and this will prompt you to expand, go on a journey to new places and horizons.
Jupiter in Sagittarius is backing up the New Moon it’s ready to go, to expand, a big push energy, bold and enthusiastic. Mars conjunct Neptune is a new beginnings, a new dream or vision, the seeking of something more, taking you to a higher place/ground.
The square to Mars/Neptune in Pisces, brings in some tension or pressure to act, to get out from under it, you can feel irritated and restless, channel this energy into something positive to help you work it off or get you out of it. The square aspect between Sagittarius and Pisces the action or vision is lost.
The arrow shoots out, you just don’t know where it is or where it will land.
The elusiveness of Pisces can weaken the energy behind the action, also makes it difficult to control the outcome, a little faith and fate may be working and needed, plus being open minded, flexible and patient.
Sagittarius side is high energy, Pisces side is less so, this may mean that the dream, vision or goal(ultimate goal) has not really formulated yet(timing), either in your mind or heart and it’s not quite ready to come to full form or be seen. Keep paying attention, you will see or know it soon, that’s when to shoot or Go. (probably not until the new year).
Feels like intentions setting of: waiting for the instinctual, natural, raw, response, knowing when to Go (you’re in the ready, again timing).
Don’t let illusions, delusions, fears or false starts block you from achieving.
There’s a lot of water in the chart and planets in mutable signs, nothing is fixed to make it stick.
Mercury went Direct a few hours before this New Moon, information is still coming in.
Chiron goes Direct on the 9th, more healing to be done, wrap this up first.
Keep the faith and trust it! Which is what both these signs are about.
The year is wrapping up, here are some of the astro aspects for the month. It’s been a wild year, one with lots of twist, turns and surprises thanks to Uranus blowing out of Aries and into Taurus.
The month starts off with Moon in Virgo and ends the year with the Moon in Scorpio.
Uranus will be the only planet Rx at end of year, goes Direct on January 7th in Aries.
Just before Mars in Pisces hits is home sign of Aries on January 1st, he meets up with Chiron(feeling vulnerable/sore spot/wounding/healing), here you have the opportunity to heal or work with a sore spot, to turn a weakness into a strength. Taking some kind of action towards making something better.
Which may be a good thing as this gives you the opportunity to take care of some of the areas of life that have been battered and bruised. Aries is the planet of action/direction but it’s also your identity, your fiery energized self.
Mars bolts into Aries on Jan 1st, back to his home sign, Mars had a long rough Rx phrase this year and now is ready to go home to Aries, where the action planet is strong.

It’s been a long, rough road, take a breath and pause from everything that’s happening internally and especially from the external world around you.
The Libra New Moon comes along to help you get back to your center self. Like most people, you have probably gone so far from this place of balance or equilibrium, it just seem like a distant shore or a memory.
Venus Rx in Scorpio is in the underworld, letting go, to be reborn as the morning star, and so are you. This is the time to recharge, and address ALL that you have gone through, to get back to that place within you that know’s what it wants or whats lacking. Without taking time out for you, to address all of your relationship, with people, situations or even things that you value, you may not be able to move forward with or into your hearts desire.
It’s a Libra new moon, you want to get back to center, to find that place within you that’s calm and in charge, so that whatever is happening in the external world you can approach it and make choices, decision and not be reactive or acting on impulse.
Venus rules Libra, Venus themes – love, money, relationship and values are playing a part of the New Moon. You may be addressing the want or desires around these themes. Important to find the center first so you can make really good choices around your hearts desire.
This New Moon squares Pluto, brings in some intensity and fear around transformation or change. Pluto makes way for the new to enter, but before this can happen the old must go, this may be or feel like a loss or something is going. You may feel like everything has dried up, gone or withering away. There is the natural order or the natural way, this is Libra getting it all back to equilibrium.
A quincunx to Neptune, makes it feel a little slippery, adjustment may need to be made around any fears you have in regards to getting what you want. Just hold on, find the center, and wait it out when this mood or feeling comes over you. Let the Neptune part dissolve any barriers or fears you have about the changes you are making.
Find the time to rest, to find some peace.

Being a new moon it’s the start of something new, plus you’re coming out of eclipses. Where are you now? what shifts and changes have finely fallen into place, since May.
In Virgo you want to clear out, tidy up and stick with working at the details/facts, this is for improvement, upgrade, to make something better.
Since Pluto is involved it may come with some intensity or deep focus.
Jupiter wants to expand or you may find that you’re looking through a magnifying glass to get to the details, you want to see clearly or perhaps you just want it to be as near perfect as you can get.
Pluto and Jupiter are supporting this New Moon for transformation and growth, so….
You want to start out right.
Don’t take shortcuts.
Neptune can make it all a little fuzzy or blurred, you may find that you lose the thread or focus, you just can’t seem to get it right or it doesn’t feel quite right, so take the time. But stay the course, especially if it’s something that is really worth your while.
Neptune can often mean an ending or releasing of something, allow the Virgo energy to help you sort out what this is, Virgo is asking for you to improve your life. Take the time to contemplate what that is. It’s sifting and sorting now that leads you further down the path to a better place. But, it’s best done in Virgo’s way, the details and work.
It’s a New Moon in Virgo, have patience, be discerning with what you are doing. Tend to and take the care that is needed.
Sun/Moon conjunct Mercury Rx.
Mercury square Jupiter.
A finger of God – Mercury(point) – Neptune/Pluto
Phew! that’s been a wild ride!
Eclipses come in groups, every 6 months, eclipses happen in the same signs for roughly 2 years. The first eclipse in Leo happened in February 2017, the last will be January 2019. So you will be wrapping up this Leo themed season of eclipse then, what has the Lion been showing you?
As you know Eclipses shake or shape the path you are on, to me the eclipse are the universe way of shaking, stepping in or stepping you up to get you back on track or on purpose. It’s a helping hand when you are losing your way, of course it’s not easy, as it’s sometimes a bit of a surprise.
It’s in the theme of Leo, this is where all of the action or path forward is in.
Leo – attraction, attention, purpose or passion, pride or proud. It’s a time to step into leadership in your life, to look forward with a strength, courage and heart of Lion King. The Leo eclipses over the last year or so, is showing, asking you to be brave, to find that confidence within to conquer your fears and to come out from behind the shadow of the old self that has lacked the confidence to shine, to be who you really are and to show off the gifts that lay within you. The light is shining here.
Sun and Moon conjunct Mercury Rx, illuminating some information, communication, thoughts or thinking about what Mercury is going back over in some area of life. It’s still all up in the air and the information may still be not ready to settle. Still some uncertainty perhaps. Lots of thinking and going over going on here. Mercury is the point in the Yod, talking to God.
The Yod (finger of God) – between Mercury, Pluto and Neptune, a higher purpose, path or way is involved here. Pluto (power and transformation), Neptune, the mystic, dream, a pull towards a dream, may help you to get what you want. Mercury is the point, talking to God, with the adjustment to make it happen.
Mercury square Jupiter, your might have big plans or thoughts that you want to take far, (or something is or was taken to far) you want to broaden your horizons. Jupiter can be expansive energy, likes to exaggerate. Try not to be too over the top. This is where you have to not let the Leo ego or false confidence take over, a higher purpose is at play here. **Jupiter trines Neptune 19th, the plans or ideas that you want, if in alignment with your higher plan or purpose you will be able to take this further.**
Eclipses, set the way, correct the course, an element of trust, faith, and letting go and handing over plays a very big part. Best approach is to go with it. You will see what the end result is in 2019 when the Leo season of eclipses are over.
Like always look at your own birth chart to see where all of this is happening.
July will be a big month, the eclipses are coming, the nodes of fate switches things up and around, In the sign of Cancer and Aquarius, are you ready for this?
July is another action packed month of planetary movements and change ups.
Good vibe in July, Jupiter goes Direct, a good thing, a little luck or joy may start to turn things around, especially for Saggies and Pisces as Jupiter rules these two sign.
Jul 5 – Chiron Retrograde 2°Aries – planet of wounds/healing, like all Rx phrase it’s an inward journey, Chiron always offers a gift, take the time out to do some healing work on the sore spots that have been poked, find the gift amongst the pain, as this is your offering.
Jul 9 – Venus enters Virgo – planet of love, money, relationships, likes/dislikes enters Virgo, mutable earth, be practical, realistic and humble, she gets more real and focused here. You may have a few choices to make, one of Virgo’s qualities is being discerning.
Jul 10 – Jupiter Direct 13°Scorpio – Bah Boom! planet of luck, abundance, growth and expansion goes Direct, might bring in a little shine and lift off some of the heavy emotions.
Jul 13 – New Moon solar eclipse in 20° Cancer – well, you never really know what is going to happen here, openings and closing.
Jul 22 – Sun enters Leo – you get to shine a little brighter.
Jul 26 – Mercury Retrograde 23°Leo – planet of communication, information, you all know about Mercury Rx.
Jul 27 – Full Moon Lunar eclipse 4° Aquarius – Yes, another eclipse, it’s always tricky, a light goes off and on, what changes during this time, fate/universe shifts thing around. It may take a while to see the full measure of the eclipses, they can last up to 6 months.
Jupiter goes Direct, Chiron and Mercury go Rx, still many planet in Rx phrase, slowing it all down. Adds to the slog, however it does give you time to breathe and to pace yourself, slow down, go over situations in your life. To see what was missed or overlooked before.
And… it all just keeps going on, and really, why should this month be any different.
It’s all still a mish-mash of chaos and uncertainty, might stay that way until September, so go grab your birth chart with glee and see where the action is taking place for you on a more personal level.
As I write, the moon is slowing moving towards the Sun, the balsamic phrase, you let go, a dying off, for the New Moon in Gemini, I gotta say it’s uneasy, uncomfortable, some angst and stress is moving along with it.
Gemini, sign of ideas, thoughts, communication, learning and sharing. An air sign full of bright ideas. This New Moon not so much with the mind or clarity as there is too much other stuff going on. You may have to wait till after the Sun and Moon meet up and move apart to set your intention. Perhaps not an easy New Moon, one to sit and wait it out, feel it, go with it, do not try to force anything, it’s a time just to allow, there is a reason for it, maybe you do not know right now, but you will.
Moon squares Neptune, fogs it all up, feels like you cannot grasp hold of the idea, thought is scattered, thinking is clouded.
Mercury ruler of Gemini moves into Cancer a few hours before this New Moon, brings in feelings, moves you into your body, out of the head adds a touch more heat and emotion.
Venus, after the New Moon leaves Cancer and enters Leo, the personal planets shift and change which makes it all wobbly.
A t-square is forming between Saturn in Capricorn + Mercury in Cancer + Chiron in Aries, it’s tense, hits a sore spot or you feel extra sensitive to all that is around you. It’s a struggle, you feel pushed down or in, stay in the moment, feel it, try to observe it all, (Gemini) Chiron in Aries, you want to get going, take action, here you feel vulnerable, feel like the fire is out. Stay on track, know you have got it in you to proceed onwards.
These three are all meeting together, so something is happening however difficult it is hang in there. You have to work with Mercury’s intuitive perspective with Saturn’s rules/structure and organization and Chiron, well, wants you to use your pain or sore spot to be the fire that sets you free and keeps you moving. The intensity they bring may be the gift, if you work with it. Whats missing from the mix is Libra’s balance and logic, find a center point, a conduit to channel all of this energy. Not just a mind New Moon, its body and emotions.
Pluto quincunx(adjustment) Sun and Moon in Gemini(ideas, information, truth) energy that just don’t fit well together, another layer of intense emotions sitting just underneath the surface, anything to do with Pluto is an unraveling, what is Pluto’s role, to make you eventually feel empowered, you know like you got some, removes whatever is making you feel powerless.
Moon enters Cancer @ 5:19 pm, you may want to find yourself some comfort, let your emotions settle, but know deep inside that something is changing, shifting and turning.
As always look at YOUR birth chart to see how this is working for you or if it affects you at all.
