MOON IN CANCER

July 5Tth 2016

 Today the Moon is in Cancer and  Mercury is in trine with Neptune

Well it’s a pretty glorious  day for anything to do with communications and dreams. Mercury the planet that rules our thought process and communication is connecting with the dreamy and inspirational Neptune.

Yesterday we entered into a New Moon in Cancer, so if you haven’t had the chance to make some wishes or intentions do so today…

So use today and the energy of Mercury’s clear thought process and Neptune imaginative energy  to make your 10 wishes, set your intentions, go as big or as little as you like and make your commitments for the coming four weeks. You won’t regret it. Remember you are what you think and feel, you are a powerful manifester so dismiss negative thoughts and feels and feel good about your intentions you wish to bring forth into your world.

July 4-5. With Venus in Cancer we have a strong desire for harmony, love, safety and comfort . We may be moved to express our affections, don’t hold back!

 

~ Today’s Daily Oracle Card~

~ Its time to move on ~

It’s time to let go of the old and worn out so that the new can come in.” By drawing this card, you’re alerted to the fact that you need to make room for the new by letting go of the old. First, let go emotionally and intellectually. In other words, “quit” or “say good-bye” in your mind and heart. Once you do this, the physical letting-go will happen naturally, in a peaceful and harmonious way. Ask Heaven to help you make this transition, and don’t plan, scheme, or worry about how your letting-go (or replacement) will occur. Put all of your energy into prayer and faith, and leave the rest up to Infinite Spirit. You’ll get definite guidance whenever it’s the right moment to take action. Until then, stay lovingly detached from your old situation.

This week in astrology 04/07/16

This week in astrology….

The start of the week we get a New Moon in Cancer. This beautiful manifesting New Moon occurs on Monday, July 4th, 2016, at 7:01 AM EDT

The New Moon in Cancer on July 4, 2016 is the commencement of a new Luna cycle., thus ending the Gemini New Moon. Cycle. This month not only is the Sun is in Cancer, Venus is in Cancer and Mercury is in Cancer. Oh La La.

So what does this mean..

The Sun is in Cancer from June 20-July 22. We Cancerians are very self-protective and do a lot of inward looking, so many of you may experience this energy under this cosmic influence. Emotions run deep with us Cancerians and so any of you could experience the waves and floods of emotions we experience daily for no reason. We are more susceptible to the ups and downs of the Moon; even more so while the Sun is in Cancer. Nurturing and taking care of our loved ones including pets comes into focus. But remember to take some self-care as this cardinal sign often neglects their own needs. I am very guilty of this!! Attentions will be turned into our homes, love nest and most of all our loved ones and families, anything that makes you feel safe and secure.

From June 29-July 13 Mercury is in Cancer. Mercury is the planet that rules communication and thought process. While it resides in the sign of cancer it will be less of the logical mind thinking and reasoning and more gut level way of feeling, thinking, speaking and perceiving. With Mercury in Cancer you wont want to understand or be interested in things on face or surface value instead you will dive into the root of things, on a deep emotional level not a superficial one. Intellect and emotion mix to the point of inseparability.

Venus hmm the planet of love and abundance is in Cancer from June 17-July 12. When Venus is in the sign of Cancer , it is very  nurturing, with elements of  self-protective and  cautiousness , and protectiveness of loved ones, Venus in cancer can also be very fertile.In Cancer, Venus can make us  experience many emotional  ups and downs in love. We become tender,  impressionable , attached,devoted, romantic, Cancer love is warm and sensitive .

Don’t be surprised if you have the urge to be affectionate,caring, over protective, sociable, cuddly, cute and mushy .

Have a great week, happy birthday and happy New Moon to all my Moon children.

Happy Manifesting

The New Moon in Cancer 2016

Today marks the beginning of the 29.5 day Moon cycle, as we are having a New Moon in Cancer today  July 4th, 2016 .New Moons are a new wave of energy  that happens when the   Sun and Moon meet at the exact same point of the zodiac ( being Cancer this month)

As a Cancerian myself this is a very exciting month for me, a month of love, birthdays, happiness and today a chance to dream up big and manifest.

This Cancer New Moon offers us a chance to rebirth our emotional body. What do you desire to feel about yourself and your life? What Cancerians traits would you like to manifest and invite into your world?

Cancer is the sign of the Mother,Carer, Nurturer. Cancer symbolizes the womb of Life. Cancerians are the protectors,highly  creative and we feel things on a  very deep level, deep like the running tides of rivers and the oceans. As Cancer is the first cardinal water sign it is a sign of strong feminine power providing the symbolic water of life upon everyone we come across.The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, drawing upon the waters of creation in a tidal ebb and flow. The Moon speaks to us through our  imagination, our visions, our dreams, our symbols, our stories… Cancerians are highly intuitive, our gut instincts are 100% so don’t try to trick us we see through the veil of lies, we are very observing and we will love you until the end of time, no matter how bad you hurt us.  We are ruled by our stomachs, we heal by cooking, comfort eating, and smoother the people we love.

This Month  listens to your emotions, acknowledge them as valid feelings, which in turn will tell you what we need to do to prosper in your world.

~Today’s Daily Oracle card~

Well this card could not pop up at a more perfect moment, as it’s a new moon and a time to manifest

Ready_set_go

 

This card says, “”Now is the perfect moment to dive in and embrace your heart’s desire

Even though you may feel that you are not ready to start working on your heart’s desire, this card is saying that now is the best time to do so. In other words, even though you may not feel ready, you are ready right now.

This is about taking steps towards your true heart’s desires, both big and small. In some way you need to establish what you don’t need in your life, or what will interfere with you working towards your true heart’s desire. It could be the way you think, as you may have self-doubts, fears, worries, insecurities and other self-sabotaging thoughts. In some sense, what is needed here, first to recognize that you have such negative thoughts, second perhaps establish a pattern, when you are likely to think of these negative thoughts, third be vigilant so you can recognise these negative thoughts and forth to deal and challenge these thoughts, so you can turn them around so that these negative thoughts do not have such a hold on you.

It could be a simple case that you have too many responsibilities and obligations places on you. If people are constantly putting demands on your time, energy and attention, know that it is OK to say “No” occasionally. If you have too many responsibilities, if there is someone around you who can do them for you , than delegate, so that the workload is fairly distributed. By doing this you are rescheduling your time so you can spend time doing something that is truly important to you.

By working on your true heart’s desires you will have more energy, have greater self-esteem, you will be happier and you will attract more abundance.”

So work with the New Moon write down your manifestation list work with your angels and guides, you are ready to manifest what you truly desire in your life right now

Make-a-wish

New Moon in Taurus, and the week ahead

The week ahead

Well this week we see the magic of the waxing crescent moon transform into the beginning of the New Moon cycle that occurs on Friday, May 6th, 2016.

May 6, 2016   3:29 PM Sun Conjunct Moon (New Moon)

The Aries New Moon cycle we have just been in ends and the New Moon in Taurus cycle begins.

The New Moon in Taurus

The energies of this earth sign is the mighty Bull!, It’s time to enjoy life’s simple and physical pleasures, this New Moon is great time to commit to personal goals, try to tap into the beautiful grounding energies of this star signs and not pulled down by their negative!

Enjoy activities that bring you in touch with nature and with you bodies. Taurus is about security, safety, ambitions, sensual and practical. The have a great eye for beauty, and a mastermind with finances. With this New Moon approaching its time to become more aware of what makes us feel comfortable and secure. Work at it, wish and put the intentions out there on what your true heart desires.

Mercury transits the sun (crosses in front of the sun, as seen from Earth) on May 9, for the first time since 2006

With Mercury in retrograde and with the New Moon approaching Taurus, this is a good cycle under which to re-evaluate our relationship to possessions and money, and to discover what truly makes us happy and fulfilled.

Jupiter pops out first thing at dusk. It’s the brightest star like object in May and lights up the nighttime until the wee hours of the morning.

 

 

Lets Start at the beginning of the week

Monday 1st May , the moon is in Pisces connecting ( T-square configuration) with Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn. As we know Pisces is a creative, artistic a dreamer..  but it can also leave your thoughts chaotic and a little of not knowing whats going on this is  due to Mercury in retrograde. The configuration of these planets, we may be feeling a little chaotic , emotional unbalanced, with internal and external conflicts. We will feel to a degree, instability and undecidable with our goals and what next step to take. A positive aspect is our usual intuition and judgment is enhanced under this influence, and we can use this to help ground ourselves when thinking, dealing and seeing in matters with fresh new perspective that works in our advantage. finding beauty in the differences.

Tuesday –

The Sun trine is in a positive aspect with Jupiter and Virgo  This influence is about growth and expansiveness. These planets are about earth and stability and practical matters. We are more aware of moral issues, and have a desire to improve and learn. Optimism and confidence are basic elements in the energy of this transit. We are more willing to take a risk or two, and we are motivated by a desire to impress others. Enthusiasm runs high, and cooperation comes easy. This is generally a good time to schedule new beginnings in business, education, personal relationships, marriage, creative projects, and so forth, all things equal.

Although Taurus energy  can be easy-going and respectful, its energy  can also be unbelievably stubborn, self-indulgent and inflexible in their approach. So if you find this week that if logic and logical conversations don’t seem to be getting across to some you will know its the stubbornness of the Taurus energy, so just breath , smile and know  that some might refuse to listen! common sense sometimes isn’t so common.

When Wednesday/Thursday   approaches, this is a special day as the Sun is in Taurus; Mercury is in Taurus; Venus is in Taurus; Mars is in Sagittarius. WOW what a mouthful, and kinda unnerving, this whole week is a build of energy for something big to be released… A cosmic storm!!!

Friday we see the New Moon. The last New Moon in Scorpio was a little intense with that Scorpio energy, now the New Moon is in the sign of Taurus  we will see on that day the Moon will make several aspects , aspects with Venus, Neptune, Jupiter, pluto and Mercury . Be prepared it will be a very busy new moon, and new moons are always about new beginnings  and with this potent Taurus energy  it’s all about practicality nature, security oriented nature dealing with money , values , resources, material level, projects or careers.

Saturday  and Sunday we will see a very busy build up of positive earth signs. that will include – Pluto,Jupiter, Capricorn and Virgo. This build up of energy is a good change, we will see positive results once mercury and jupiter get out of retrograde and go direct!! The  Sun in Taurus is trine with pluto , jupiter and Capricorn, so this results in a Grand Trine. The Sun is making a grand trine with all the earth signs, the Sun in Taurus  is aligning and connecting positively with jupiter and the earth sign of virgo,  The Sun is also  in a positive aspect with the earth sign of capricorn. The grand build up is transforming a powerful energy, that will be interesting to see unfold over the next few weeks.

So lets not forget to mention Mercury

Have you noticed its effects? i sure have.. Sigh

Mercury is in retrograde, and as the planet of communication, when it is in retrograde  communication can be misinterpreted ,confusing and lead to an uncertain level of communication confusion! EEK so while we are in this period its best to remember that mercury rules our lower minds and how we perceive information, interpret information and communication,  from ourselves, others and our surrounding environment. So pay close attention to what you say and communicate in general.

Mercury also has ruler-ship in other areas of our worlds such as buying and selling, travel, signing formal contracts, speaking,  negotiating,  listening and  documents, so try to avoid any large purchases, booking holidays, signing new business deals and contracts, negotiating new jobs or pay rises as all of these areas of life can affected when Mercury is functioning in a sluggish state.

Good old Mercury is here to help us make important changes in our lives, he helps us to  reorganise and reflect.This period is  great at  looking  at the world, situations, ourselves a little differently,  with rose-coloured glasses or through different filters, and most importantly Mercury helps us  come up with some very important inner revelations

So this Week

You have the chance to make important changes in your lives.

Self reflect – is it time to make some solid yet realistic plans?

Sit down, really reflect on what you want to change or bring into your life, write your New Moon intentions

Be proactive and  set the stage for reaping the rewards from your new beginnings, as little or big as they may be.

Meditate and focus on your third eye, root and solar plexus Chakra

Purification and cleansing this week is the theme, with mercury being in retrograde. Use this time as a Cleanse period and rid the path of most resistance…

Law of attraction will be put into practice this week, testing our new boundaries, Ask for assistance this week from someone who is more in tune with  the divine , universe, a guru etc.. if you feel like you are in a rut, help is coming, just wait it’s on it way ,  talk to your guides, angles the  big man in the sky and take the life raft if one is offered to you.emotional cleansing will lead to liberation for the soul, and  will help ground you this week with all the cosmic chaos going on.

Clean away old patterns, energies that you  rid to get rid of before and didn’t work, cos now with the planetary alignments and the New Moon it is the time to really clean and cleanse out ourself for our souls, its time for you to get  rid of what has been holding you back

Honour your self

You gotta be in charge this week.

New Moon Awakening 

 

 New Moon

As the New Moon approaches us have you ever sat and wondered what people are talking about when they mention the “New Moon” and no it’s not a book in the Twilight series I am talking about.

The “New Moon” is the start of the lunar cycle. The new lunar cycle occurs approximately once every 29 days. This is a time when the Moon, Sun and Earth, Moon are roughly positioned in a line, with the Moon sitting between the Earth and the Sun. This is why you can’t see the moon hovering in the night sky. This is often referred to ( and not just by Pink Floyd) as the dark side of the moon.

This “Dark moon” in many cultures such as the Hebrew and Chinese,  represents the start of the calendar month. The first day of the new moon is considered to be the finest day to begin undertaking any new project or task or in many belief systems it is the time to plant a seed of what you want to grow in your life. Making a wish, a promise or to set an intention is a common practice. It is believed that as the moon  grows, that your goal or intention will too …

We are still in that 48 hour time zone where New Moon wishes and intentions can create abundance. Make those wishes count. When you harness the energy with the power of pure intention, the universe is ready to manifest miracles. A great moon mantra to use to raise your  vibrations and create positive mind set  is “I see the New Moon and the New Moon sees me, I wish for abundance to come to me.” and Feel and imagine like what you intend on manifesting or wishes for as already yours..

Remember the Law Of Attraction states you attract what you think and feel. So the question is… Do you believe in magic ?

The Moon An Ancient Guide

 

The Moon As A Guide

Humans have gazed up at the nighttime sky for thousands of years, looking for meaning and guidance from the moon and stars. If you think about it, its really amazing how the Moon has a profound effect on the Earth, the gravity it generates is powerful enough to stir up and move water in our oceans , causing high and low tides.

The revolution of the Moon around the Earth makes the Moon appear as if it is changing shape and colour in the sky, but as we all know the Moon doesn’t generate any light itself,  its illuminating glow  is just the reflection of the light caused by the different angle of the Sun, in which we see as the bright part on the Moon’s surface.

The moon is our closest neighbor in space, and the moon has a profound effect on the Earth and on the human imagination. The moon & its phases were understood as early as 500 BC by the Greeks.  The shadow it cast is dark enough to obscure our sun in a solar eclipse. Its brilliance can illuminate a traveler’s path on a long winter’s night.

Being aware of the moon and seasonal changes has always been important to those who choose to focus the lunar energy on their goals and objectives, the moon cycles were used to keep track of seasons, and thus designated different agricultural markers.

In most neo-Pagan and Wiccan traditions, the names given to the various moon cycles are based upon a couple of different sources. the moon cycles were used to keep track of seasons, and thus designated different agricultural markers. The farmers almanacs ( An Almanacs is a calendar containing events such as phases of the moon, tides,sunrises and sunsets, astronomical or meteorological information,including future positions of celestial objects, star magnitudes, and culmination dates of constellations and other statistical information and related topics.) Where based on lunar cycles. The phases of the moon were very important to the farmer’s who timed their harvesting according to the moons cycles.
Knowing the moons phases can help you plan and prepare for change, new beginnings and endings. Ancient ways can still be used in modern times, working with the moons energy increases your own personal power and supports your intention. it is used in goal setting and self-empowerment,  and, of course, the moons energy play’s an important role for people that use the various phases of the moon in ritual work, magic and other ceremonies.

Rituals undertaken during certain moon phases can be enhanced by using the moon and its cycles for specific purposes.

The Waning Moon

The Waning moon is sometimes called an old moon,  is decreasing in size, moving from the Full moon towards the New moon. Now the moon has moved nearly entirely around in its orbit of Earth, and is measured from one new moon to the next. Because the moon is nearly on a line with the Sun and  Earth again, the day hemisphere of the moon is facing mostly away from us once more. We see only a slender fraction of the moon’s day side, this is how it gets it name of a crescent moon.

This is a time for spells that banish, release, reverse. This is a good time to break bad addictions or bad habits ( that could be holding you back from from losing weight), and ending bad relationships, or any relationship you have outgrown or has negativity energy or emotions attached to it.

You can use this time to rid oneself of negativity or illness and the removal of troubles and worries. If you think someone has put a negative block or curse on you this is the best time to remove it.  This is a great time to use this moon phase and its energy  to deepen intuition and a time for divination.

The Waning moon is a time to rid oneself of everything that is causing obstruction, to get rid of anything or anyone you know longer need. Good time for dying  hair or getting hair cuts to slow growth,  or to defuzz your face and pluck your eyebrows. 

Time for self-analysis, rest an recuperation, meditation and readying oneself for the energies of the New Moon.

At this time the moon represents the Goddess in her Crone Aspect, give praise to Hecate, Morrigan or one of the other Crone Goddesses. 

So let’s recap..

The warning moon is a great time too..

1.. Dissolve negative energies

2.. Banishing

3.. Hex breaks

4.. Binding and repelling

5.. Protection

6.. Destroying negative  forces

7.. Cleasning, clearing and Removing.

Write yourself a letter of anything or anyone you want to cut cords from, call upon your higher self , your angels, your deities and ask for help clearing all blocks, negative energy or anything you may feel like you have outgrown. Sit under the moon and burn your letter to the night skies, or if you don’t have the ability to burn hold the intention of releasing, anything set with intention and emotion behind it is very powerful! 
Rest, recharge and regroup your energy and thoughts for the New moon that approaches us… For its nearly time for manifesting and wishing X
