New Moon in Cancer June 23, 2017 10:31 pm ET
Creating Stronger Foundations ~ Maintaining Emotional Balance
On Friday June 23rd we have the New Moon in Cancer. The basic information about this New Moon is about creating a stronger foundation and maintaining emotional balance. We should be focusing on home and family, caring and nurturing, security and protection, and creating routines. Do you feel vulnerable? Are you able to open up and be intimate? Can you be supportive or do you need to figure out how to receive support from another? Are you overly emotional fearful of rejection? Are you super sensitive of other people’s feelings?
Take some time and examine these items and questions for yourself, this is exactly what a New Moon in Cancer is asking from us and we will have extra help with these items thanks to a few other planets. Read on and I will explain.
The first thing I want to do is give you some understanding of Cancer through the eyes of the native. The following are things Cancer people feel all the time, some people are good at handling their emotions and their stuff and some people are not.
I think of my father a New Moon Cancer man, he has been a crab his whole life, (yes I did say that, Cancer is the Crab) never integrating his feelings in a healthy way. Men in his generation (he is 85) where not allowed to have their emotions, and his upbringing was strict, how hard that must have been for him. He has always either hidden in his shell or expelling his emotions loudly. Yup that would be yelling. J
So we have two distinctive sides to every zodiac sign and of course many shades of gray in between depending on your level of awareness. This kind of energy and behaviour is what we are all getting a taste of with this New Moon in Cancer. It is an opportunity to really connect with what we want and need in regards to our emotional security, family, support and all the other things already listed in the first paragraph.
So the assignment with this New Moon in Cancer is to set goals relating to the changes you want to make in your life around your emotional health, your family, how you feel safe and secure at home. Are there changes that need to happen in your family or where you live? New Moons are about setting goals and reaching for the stars, but sometimes we have to let go of something first before the new can arrive. So keep that in mind too, if something is ready to leave your life let it leave, then you set some fresh goals now that there is space to do it.
There is more than just the New Moon today we also have Mercury and Mars in Cancer all within range of each other. This means our emotions are heightened even more so then ever. Let me break it down a little.
Mercury is in Cancer and he is moving very fast through the zodiac he is also what we call “Out of Bounds” this is when a planet moves off the path of the ecliptic. It is kind of like driving your car next to the paved road but not on it. It is said when a planet is in this condition it acts extreme in the nature of the planet and the sign it is currently in. So what does this mean for Mercury in Cancer? It means there is a lot of emotional talking, animated conversations, overly emotional conversations, very active mind based on emotions. Everyone will be in a hurry and talking fast.
I have this in my natal chart, Mercury out of bounds in cancer. Have you even seen me talk, my hands are all over the place and I am louder than my usual when emotionally charged, I do talk really fast when I am not paying attention. Maybe I have my Father to thank for that learned behavior and maybe it is just because my Mercury, planet of communication is very emotional. *I don’t yell any more now that I am aware of that placement.
You can be aware now too, with Mercury in Cancer for only 2 weeks June 22nd to July 5th this is your opportunity to see your own emotional makeup and make adjustments were you see fit. Just what the New Moon is looking for.
We also have Mars in Cancer and he too is “Out of Bounds” and the Sun is in Cancer as well, these two are naturally fire and with both of them in a water sign we can expect emotions to flare up significantly. We will see this in the world around us and in some cases this will trigger our own emotions within and that is exactly what it should do. This can be the motivation some people need to create the change they are looking for but are afraid to do.
This energy is hot and wet at the same time. Fire and water create stream so be careful not to get burned. Many of us will be feeling angry and upset off and on throughout the time the Sun is in Cancer June 21st to July 22nd because the Sun and Mars are neck and neck moving through this sign bring up what has been hidden and private in your life so you can “feel it to heal it”. I prefer that over the preverbal 2X4 across the head. I hope you do too.
But there is more; we also have some other aspects that happen during and within a few days of this New Moon. Mars is square to Jupiter and opposite Pluto. Mercury will be involved for a few days at the New Moon too. The Astrology of it is a Cardinal “T” square. All of this activity means we can be incredibly impulsive, emotions running higher than anyone can imagine. Watch your words, check-in on yourself and see how you feel, back down if someone else is picking a fight and find your own center, your own emotional foundation. Take breaks from the world or the people that stress you out.
I have to say if you can get into a place that is caring and nurturing for yourself and family then that is perfect for the month of Cancer.
If you get triggered and decide to engage in the emotional outbursts of others then that is fine too. Maybe you need to be pushed so you can learn to create your own space. Both of these choices are equally valid and so the “T” square has done its job of motivating you into action in some way.
Woweee what an emotional month.
June 9th Full Moon in Sagittarius
Is It Time to Play Yet? Yes it is.
The Full Moon is at 18 degrees of Sagittarius at 9:10 am ET on June 9th. To me this is one of the easier Full Moons of the year. If life has been hard for you lately then use what this Full Moon has to offer.
Personally I enjoy life a lot when the Full Moon is in Sagittarius because it is exciting and fun. Sagittarius is spontaneous and adventurous, we like exploring our world, learning about things we do not know and how it impacts our lives.
We should all be learning through life experiences as this graces us with wisdom which only comes through experiencing things…..
As we move closer and closer to the eclipses in August with each New and Full Moon we have an opportunity to understand ourselves more and at a deeper level.
When it comes to learning Sagittarius is in charge of the bigger things, for instance; what do you believe? What are your Spiritual practices? How about philosophy? Have you been thinking about higher education lately? What about writing or at least journaling. Have you been working on publishing something? It doesn’t have to be a book, it can be any kind of knowledge based information you want to share with the world. For instance; I am still working on some short educational videos that will be on my web site for sale over the coming few months.
What else is there? Sagittarius is in charge of foreign places and people. During this Full Moon we will certainly see the results of Governments interactions with each other. Things that are hidden do come to a head during Full Moons.
On a personal level ask yourself this question if you will. What do you have hidden? What have you said or done recently that may come back at you? Gemini can agree to everything and say what is needed to fill in empty space, but is it true? So what I am saying here is this, be mindful of the promises you make, you may not be able to keep them all.
During this Full Moon we also have Mars in Cancer. When Mars is in this sign we all feel a lot more emotional. Let me explain. Mars is in charge of the element of Fire and he is in a Water sign, the Moon is in charge of Water and she is in a Fire sign today. Mars is also in an extreme position in the solar system called “Out of Bounds”. All of these things can create hot tempers and sudden choices are made. Mars does not understand why he is feeling so much and just wants to fix it not feel it. But that is not purpose of this transit, the purpose is to feel and figure out how to honor those feelings. At the very least in hindsight we will be able to understand our emotions more just not while we are unconsciously in them.
We could also feel highly motivated to take action where we have been sitting still. Remember we always have the choice to do what we want. Astrology never makes us do anything.
The Sun and Pluto are also interacting with each other today and it is not an easy connection. These two energies are struggling, the Sun in Gemini wants to play, talk and socialize in a light carefree way, and Pluto on the other hand wants us to go deep, take everything seriously, and figure out how we are changing in the deepest psychological way possible.
Two very different energies that will fight each other, the Sun moves quickly and this connection will be over before most of us feel the deepness or confusion of this transit. We might feel as if we are off course or simply a little crabby for a few days but it will pass for most of us quickly.
If you are born within a week of June 9 like me then you are and will be dealing with this Pluto transit for a long time. Life for you is currently all about changing your core values and beliefs.
This reminds me of how deep and complex Astrology really is and I know, I have been studying it for 29 years. But on the other hand every week for over 10 years now I have either written or produced a video forecast in a way that is simple and easy to understand in Gemini fashion. I try my best anyway.
So no matter what life looks like at this moment in time, with this Full Moon and all the other things happening on this day you can make the choice to enjoy your life in every moment; that is the essence of this fiery adventurous Full Moon. Let go of your self-imposed limitations and be free to explore your world and learn something new
New Moon at 4 Gemini May 25, 2017
Our Need to Communicate…..
Is There a Failure to Communicate?
May 25th at 3:44 pm ET is the New Moon in Gemini at 4 degrees. In a nut shell this New Moon is here to remind us we need to communicate better and set new goals around communication, listening, socialization and gathering information. We may also simply say “lets’ talk it out”. If there is something going on in your personal life that you need to have a conversation about then now is the time to get things going and start that conversation.
Gemini also loves to move around and feel the freedom of the road. We are an active zodiac sign and so is this time of year.
We also have another transit to consider today; actually it started on May 22nd when the Moon connected to Venus and also Pluto. Let me break this down for you now.
On Monday May 22nd at 10:09 am ET the Moon and Venus are conjunct, both in Aries and both are squaring off with Pluto.
We want to be self-sufficient, independent, and free. We are ready to take on the world because we feel edgy and there is something that is challenging us.
If your focus on May 22nd through the New Moon on May 25th is a personal relationship then you may sense the need to be self-sufficient, independent, and free from any restrictions, self-imposed or otherwise, in that relationship.
Please keep in mind these may be your feelings or it could be your partner that is inspired to make some changes. Either way the feelings will be the same and you will experience this energy through another.
The square aspect of the Moon and Venus to Pluto adds control issues to the mix so another question arises, are you being manipulated or are you manipulating others? Are you in control of your personal power or have you given it away? I know that can be serious stuff if we are not paying attention.
Guess what? You are paying attention if you are reading this. You are being made aware of a relationship issue that is true for SOME people during this New Moon.
Those of you not in a love relationship may still have close friendships that you can experience this through. They are just important as spousal relationships.
Let’s not forget business partnerships. If you and your business partner need to work out some details in an area of your business then now is when the details and missing pieces in your partnership will rise to the surface.
Ever since the beginning of the year we have had multiple things pushing us in the relationship and partnerships sector in our lives. Jupiter in Libra is making every issue bigger than it really is so we can see it better.
The opposition of Jupiter and Uranus has pushed people over the edge when it comes to needing freedom and having personal space.
Venus was either in her shadow or retrograde from January 30th through May 19th. That also highlighted the fact that personal or close partnerships and relationships were all up for a reevaluation.
The transits of the Moon, Venus and Pluto on May 22nd with the New Moon in Gemini on May 25th are the beginning of the ending of all those relationship issue and we are starting a new lunar phase that moves in 9 month increments.
Even though this is a short transit it can still bring up old issues in regards to communicating affectively. Once we see what that is we can then initiate a new beginning and fresh start with our communication skills on the New Moon of May 25th.
What we start with this New Moon will grow and on the 1st quarter Moon in Gemini on February 23, 2018 we will be able to see the results of the work we are beginning now.
So if there has been a failure to communicate in any of your relationships now is good time to begin addressing those concerns. This has been a long time coming and will be worth our effort.
We even have Mars currently in Gemini; while it is not connected to the New Moon it does add fuel to the fire. When the elements of Fire and Air come together, and they do when Mars is in Gemini, we have a lot of power to initiate communications, but we may also start heated conversations and have plenty of arguments so watch out for that too.
To sum up this New Moon in Gemini in one short sentence; we need to create a new line of communication in every situation as written about above and any other area you come up with too.
In the long run, we always need to remember we are our own authority. The things written about here are my opinion and just a few of many scenarios that can play out with these planets. Being I am a Gemini I figure I have leg up on this sign.
If you like what you read or saw on the video please consider sharing with friends and social media sights. All I ask is you keep my information intact.

Full Moon in Scorpio May 10th5:42 pm ET
Deep Emotions Will Rise…..
There is always so much to talk about in what seems like a simple Full Moon report so I will just dive right in.
Full Moons are for reflection so we can identify and release what no longer serves us. This is the time of the month when the day and night have a lot of light. So during this time we can see most things that are hidden from sight.
The Moon is our emotions, how we care and nurture others and how we want to be cared for based on our childhoods and the nurturing nature of our mother and family unit. When it comes to the Moon we want to feel connected to those we love and call family. It is also our own emotions and how we respond emotionally to life situations. Once a month we have a Full Moon in a zodiac sign and that means in that month we get to focus a little longer on one thing; this month it is Scorpio’s turn to be the center of our attention.
Now what does that mean? Scorpio is the sign of transformation and regeneration, secrets and financial resources that are not our own like banks or inheritances. Scorpio is intense, deep and will engage on the deepest level she can.
All of this means we may be obsessive during this time when we are not typically an obsessive person. We will all feel deep emotion and if something has been bothering you will start wondering what is going on and ask yourself; why is everyone so emotional all of a sudden?
The Moon in the sign of Scorpio is intense and secretes do come to the surface when the Moon is Full in Scorpio.
If you need to work something out with a person you are emotionally connected to now is a great time to do it if you want to know every little detail. But be warned sometimes more things come the surface then we ever even knew was there. Deep dark secretes can be reveal and we wish we never opened that can of worms.
During this Full Moon the Lunar nodes are very close to the Eclipse point of August 21st. This eclipse will be seen in the USA and will dominate the news. Why is this important now? The Lunar Nodes represent our Souls Path. When the Nodes connect to where the eclipse will be (yes a few months ahead of time) we get an early notice of what is going on in August when the eclipse arrives. There already is a lot of hype around this. YOU now have a heads up to pay attention early May and you will get a clue as to what the big eclipse August 21st is about for you.
Since this going on at the same time as the Full Moon in Scorpio I recommend we all take a good hard look at what we need to release since releasing is the nature of a Full Moon.
Scorpio is not a fan of letting things go until he understands every last detail so take some time during this Full Moon to evaluate what needs a massive overhaul in your life and figure out how you can release whatever that is before we get to the Full Moon and especially before the eclipse in August.
I will be doing the forecast for the eclipses super early so keep an eye out for it and if you subscribe you will get this forecast automatically.
It is through our own deep connections with ourselves and our partners that true transformation and change can happen. The Full Moon in Scorpio is always emotionally intense so ride the wave.
A few extra notes: during the Full Moon Mercury and Uranus are conjunct again and this is the 3rd hit between these two because Mercury was retrograde. This along with the Full Moon encourages us to speak our truth, be open and honest. Doing this through speaking or written word will feel amazing and be incredibly healing.
So get out your paper and start writing, look at what you want and what you don’t want. What is working and what is not. Go deep, this is not the Full Moon to be superficial, we can go very very deep in discovering what we need to release. This is not an easy task but it is one that will be well worth it in the end.
