The Moon enters Gemini.
Venus enters Virgo.
Don’t be surprised if you wake up this morning with an overriding desire to procrastinate, this is due to the Moon still being in Taurus this morning. When the Moon is in Taurus we seek creature comforts, overindulging in foods and well.. we love to be lazy and lounge around.
This laid back attitude procrastination in part is also to do with Mercury forming a square aspect to Jupiter that happens in the early hours of the day. You may feel strongly resistant to others direction and advise.We also search for meaning to our life and our place in life. This is a day you don’t want a boss or an authority figure at work. Oftentimes this energy leads to exaggeration or misjudgment so be careful in the way you speak to or with others. The procrastination will fall away by lunch time as the Moon enters Gemini. The mood lightens up and conversation became more interesting, intelligent and witty. You can re-engage with whatever needs to be done with less internal protest.
Venus leaves playful Leo behind to enter humble Virgo until August 6th.Venus has been in Leo since the June 13th, and lets say this is not a modest and humble sign. However now it is in Virgo expect to be more discerning in your relationships as well as you develop some refinement. Your eye is on the smallest details when it comes to romance, beauty and the finer things in life. When Venus is in Virgo we expect nothing but refinement. We are focused on vanity and on pretensions to perfection. During Venus transit through Virgo the way we express love and beauty will be through earthy practical means such as gestures, mastering the fine details of your relationships and being of service to others and devoted. This transit gives all of us the opportunity to take a step backwards and review your current relationships both personal and business. To figure out what is working in our relationships.. and what isn’t. It’s a great time to work harder on our partnerships to strengthen them for the better.
However, the shadow side of this position is being very overly critical of our partners and friends. Outlining imperfections and being too picky. Venus in Virgo makes us more reserved when it comes to matters of the heart, we can become very shy and cautious in love. Watch out for closing yourself off and making yourself as indispensable as possible in order to protect your heart and to not let people in.

Chiron stations retrograde at 2’25 Aires.
These first few days of the week are relatively easy ones. But this will all come to a stand still as Chiron turns retrograde added with Mars retrograde energy These aspects further reinforce a need to take it slowly, no quick or rash decision-making. It’s better not to jump to conclusions and think before we speak and act.
Chiron stations retrograde at 2’25 Aires. With the wounded healer being the most powerful energy in our sky today its a time to reflect, heal and address deep wounds that need to transformed! However when Chiron is in play even more so when its stationing retrograde it can bring up certain emotions that can be particularly hard to make sense of. They may not be so much the happy-go-lucky ones we all love. Today don’t be surprised if you start to feel overwhelmed, tense, anxious and or even angry as repressed emotions and wounds surface! It’s a is a good time for introspection. Chiron will be Retrograde until December 9th of this year! There is a massive potential for healing and self evolution and soul growth!
It’s a time to assess your life. Especially the areas of health that concern you, this includes your metal , emotional, physical and spiritual. This period gives us an opportunity to face wounds and old hurts as well as look at your past conditioning around particular energies or how you react with certain emotions, especially towards masculine and aggressive traits! We must also look out for being over critical and judging others. If you find yourself going over your relationships with a fine tooth comb, stop! The key to using Chiron retrograde energy is to find the insights and healing available in all situations you are presented with! Healing and wholeness are the goal of Chiron.
Happy Hump Day!

This is a time when the Universal veil is thin and making connection to the other side will be easy. So look out for life’s synchronicity, repetitive numbers, write down your dreams and listen to your gut feelings! The other side may be trying to get a message to you!

Full Moon in Capricorn.
Thursday, June 28, 2018.
Happy Full Moon Day!The Capricorn Full Moon is at 6 degrees. A Full Moon is where the Sun and Moon are sitting at 180 degrees from each other. The Moon is completely illuminated and thus showers us with its Luna energy here on earth. Traditionally a Full Moon is a completion point of the lunar cycle and when the Moon recharges its batteries. We also experience a burst of strong energy as the Moon is highlight with the Suns energy and that is why people here on earth can act strange or loony during a Full Moon. The Sun is at 6 degree of Cancer, the Sun is our ego and in Cancer its your emotional and spiritual side shinning through, you are creative, artistic and nurturing in this sign. This Cancer energy that shines all its light onto the Moon which will be at 6 degrees of Capricorn. This Cancer-Capricorn polarity that we will experience this month asks us to find balance between our public and work life and our home and private life! As the Sun shines on the Moon, the Moon than receives its energy and we are left with the feeling of responsibility and duty this month. You may ask yourself questions this Full Moon such as.. “How can I love myself more and take care of my self” as well as asking yourself how can I be of service and take care of others” or “how i can i show my love and caring side to other people”. The Moon being in Capricorn will give us the practical, logical way to solving these questions, as well as loads of ideas on how to be more nurturing and caring for others! As Capricorn is all about strong work ethics these manifestations and ideas will be incorporated and expressed by you in your work.
Saturn, the structured, organised planet of lessons and Karma is at 5 degrees Capricorn. Saturn is the Ruling planet of Capricorn and its the planet that makes us build a solid, reliable and strong foundation for yourself to build your life on. When it’s in Capricorn it gives us a cosmic nudge in the right direction. It allows us to focus on our goals and gives us the ability to look at the end results and not so much the short-term journey. Life is serious business today, and these energies will find a way to bring your awareness to that fact. This may not a bad thing. You have important goals to set and things to accomplish and its wise to remember that your life also has consequences.
Today is all about looking to the future and building a strong foundation or platform to work off. With Saturn and the Capricorn Moon, any ideas or goals you have will be cemented. It’s very important to make a list or make yourself very aware of your goals, especially those goals that involve helping or caring for others. If you have always wanted a career that helps others this is the time to begin that journey, are you unemployed? Volunteer at the local community center or nursing home.
Today use this Full Moon energy to contemplate the significance of your life and make necessary adjustments to move you in the direction that you need to go.This means letting go of old emotions, people, energies, belief systems and ways of thinking. There are times in life when we should dream, a time to be silly and play and unfortunately today is not a day for fun and games! Remember, if you feel stuck or lost, one simple step can start you off on a new direction.
Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo. This is a big shift as our mind and intellect moves from being sensitive to being playful, from water to fire, we see a shift from inward thinking to a more of an external focus.Our thinking is more confident and our communication is gran. We are creative in our expressions and have fun during the process of it all. When Mercury is in Leo, the energy is great for thinking creatively and even better for self-expression. We tend to be overly dramatic and we pursue the lime light and center stage! However, we can be over self-assured and we must just watch out for coming across as narcissistic and be open to other’s perspectives.
Happy Full Moon day.

The Sun in Cancer opposes retrograde Saturn in Capricorn.
The Full Moon enters Capricorn.
The Sun in Cancer opposes retrograde Saturn in Capricorn. Today brings an unmistakable heavy atmosphere as the Sun in Cancer opposes restrictive Saturn. This opposition will create tension between our ego and conscious self and the Master teacher and lord of karma. In late December of 2017, we seen the Sun and Saturn come together. Consider and think back to that time… what began at that time and you may be able to see adjustments that may need to be made now. What have you created since then and where do you want to take it as you step forward. At this time the energy demands we get real. This is a day to take yourself and your situations along with others seriously. A time to step up and take responsibility for where you find yourself in this present moment, look clearly at reality. Also to really see what IS rather than what could or used to be. It’s not a day to sugarcoat anything. This is a day to spend time alone working on your ambitions and own goals. With the Moon entering Capricorn today it means that we need to get serious about the work that we want to accomplish.
We see the Full Moon enter Capricorn late tonight! Marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in Gemini on June 13th. This Full Moon pushes us to see our mistakes clearly and make adjustments. It’s a Full Moon to get real, grounded, put in the hard work and taking into account our responsibilities. It’s a time to be productive, practical and to offer kindness to anyone you encounter, offer support of a more serious kind.
Happy Hump Day!

The Moon is in Sagittarius.
Mars stations retrograde at 9’13 Aquarius.
Today offers us a quieter day, a day to dream of travel and spiritual awakening. The Moon is in Sagittarius most of the day following a square aspect to dreamy, mystical Neptune early this morning. Get lost in day dreaming, arts or curl up and watch a movie that ignites your imagination.Allow yourself to dream, allow yourself to imagine any and all expansive explorations that you desire. With mars turning retrograde today it is not a day to try to accomplish anything or start new projects. This is a day meant for dreamers.
The highlight of the day is when Mars turns retrograde at 9° Aquarius. Mars will remain in retrograde until August 27th, 2018.When Mars stations retrograde, it is not a time to take action or initiate new things. It is more of a time when we need to re-assess our approach to getting what we want, our current projects or hobbies and our desires and needs. This energy is one of healing and a time to deal with the past. Look to the house in your natal chart that holds Aquarius as you consider how to use this retrograde. Some can find it difficult to know what we want as the shift occurs, as well as how to organize our emotions especially the hot-headed ones such as rage, anger, control and jealously. During this retrograde phase, learning to reign in your will, rage, drive, anger and aggression and work to master these characters, that is the key over the coming weeks. It is also important that you examine how you have been using anger, aggression, and drive in your life. To make amends, to re-visit and release. It is a time to learn new ways to direct these energies moving forward.
Have a great day!

The Moon enters Sagittarius.
Venus in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio.
The Sagittarius Moon forms a sextile to Mars in Aquarius than trines Chiron in Aires.
The Moon enters Sagittarius. This is an instant energy booster as you get some spring in your step ready to and ready to go and ready explore the day ahead. If you have some steam to blow off today is the day! It’s great energy to be out and about, see the magic that is all around you, to mingling and strike up new and interesting conversations. It’s also a great day to get out and explore the world around you.. This includes booking a flight or adventure for those who need a little cosmic push!
Today we see Venus in Leo square Jupiter in Scorpio. Venus in Leo leaves you feeling confident within yourself , our wants and needs for affection and attention are high. We are playful and cheeky as we seek out someone to fulfill our needs desires. Venus in Leo is all about being in the moment in love, relationships, beauty and finances! On the other hand, Jupiter the planet of good luck , abundance and good fortune and in Scorpio, we have access and are easily able to tap into our intuition for guidance and luck. Today our good luck and abundance is gained by tapping into our selves and tuning in to what we really need intuitively. If you really listen to your feelings you will get amazing results today. So today its best to listen to your inner voice and feelings and work out what are the best circumstance you would want to manifest in your life! What is the best mode of action and direction that benefits and works best for you? Today it’s about thinking and knowing you deserve the best and thinking along the lines of “how can I improve my circumstances”. If you focus inwards at this time you will get the best answer and the next directional step forward in any area of your life. However, this aspect can also leave some over doing it today. Which i don’t mind seeing its my birthday! Watch out for over indulging, over stating feelings and emotions, being overly self-assured, over spending on our affections and proclaiming some serious love.. Think shouting it from the rooftop. Be careful not to slip up and get caught up in the moment and overstate your feelings, well unless you are sure that is!
The Sagittarius Moon forms a sextile to Mars in Aquarius than trines Chiron in Aires. We see the Moon which is our emotions form relationships with the Mars, the male archetype and principle in the sign of Aquarius which is the sign of “being of service, community and outward thinking” and Chiron the wounded healer in Aires, which is all about self-healing. It’s a day for self-healing by being around others! By healing yourself and sharing your story you are able to help those around you to step up and do self-healing. You have this amazing aura and connection to those around you today. People are able to see you for your authentic self and commend you for your journey, ts ok to say you have wounds to heal and yes you can find yourself amongst the storm and chaos. It’s ok to be bruised and still be happy!!!
Have a great day!

The Sun moves out of Gemini and into Cancer.
Venus in Leo opposes Mars in Aquarius.
Welcome to Cancer season yay! The Sun enters the intuitive, domestic and nurturing sign of Cancer. Shifting us from air to water energy. Today also marks the winter solstice. With the Sun in Cancer you will find that you are more focused on relationships and those who are the closet to you. Trust, turning inwards, home and family life will be highlighted this month.
Venus in Leo opposes Mars in Aquarius. this opposition only happens once a year. Venus and Mars are sitting 180 degrees from each other. Venus energy is very feminine and Mars energy is very masculine, and as they oppose each other today you will feel that you may long for the either one or the others energy in your life. Whenever they aspect each other the potential for creativity, fertility and romance are high. This yin and yang energy is also great for sudden break through… especially when it comes to business and travel adventures. Launch that website, ask for a pay rise, book those tickets, make your big plans happen or just get things started at least with the Venus and Mars energy sitting so far away from each other ( As much as they are against each other today) they will eventually join up where they belong and create something new. However this opposition will cause friction and you may find it hard to appreciate what you have especially as you keep looking over your shoulder for what you think you would prefer or always telling yourself something better will be coming along. Balance of the male and female energy is key today and appreciating the life you have!
I want to take this opportunity as a Cancer to clear up a misunderstanding I often see expressed about us Cancer’s. Everyone seems to know that Cancer is sensitive, moody, nurturing and tender. However, do not mistake our kindness for weakness or our sensitivity at that. Please, make no mistake, Cancer is a powerful sign in its own right! The worst thing you could ever do is take the trusting and forgiving nature of Cancer and abuse your power, we have crab claw’s for a reason and we are very in tune when we think something doesn’t sit right. Think of Cancer as the nurturing mother bear! Don’t ever mess with mamma bear Cancer especially if you assume she will not strike back!
Over the coming month it is a time to focus on home, family, emotions, inner experience and our connection to the Divine Mother.While the Sun is in Cancer, you may feel more drawn inwards, you may focus more on building deep roots and a sense of belonging. As your attention is drawn inward to your domestic life. Enjoy the more gentle, intuitive nature of this sign.
Have a great day!

The Moon enters Libra.
The Sun in Gemini forms a square with the Libra Moon.
Today don’t be surprised if certain challenges arise, as we see the Sun and Moon at odds forming a square aspect with each other. Whatever seeds you planet at last week’s New Moon during this 1st quarter Moon phase will now be firm in the pipe lines, your projects take off and you should be able to see yours dreams coming to life, however this is also a crucial point where we are faced with the first set of obstacles and challenges… I can tell you funnily enough mine are all to do with communication or lack off ( ironic as it’s a Gemini New Moon which is all about communication). Some of us are feel an urgency to take action during this phase and others may find it difficult to know what action to take but you know it is time to move forward with the understanding you gained since the New Moon last Wednesday.
It’s the last day of the Sun in Gemini, since May 20th, the Sun has been sitting in this witty, intelligent, inquisitive, curious and fast-talking Gemini. Tomorrow morning the Sun enters nurturing, emotional and inward Cancer.
The Moon enters diplomatic and harmonious Libra. This energy is lovely as it shows you how to move forward in a peaceful manner in regards to past or hurtful relationships. Libra Moon days also teach us that the best way to move forward is to face any issue with balanced, dispassionate and objectivity. It’s a day for working in harmony with others and face your challenges with race and an open heart.

The Moon is in Cancer.
Venus in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus.
This morning finds the Moon landing itself in its home sign of sensitive, nurturing Cancer. This Moon forms another sextile to the great rebellion Uranus, along with a conjunction to Mercury. Be willing to think outside the box and do things radically different is key right now.
Venus in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus. This clash will cause some tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the great revolutionary and the rebel! With so much Uranus energy out and about expect the unexpected today, and a wake up and shake up energy playing out in relationships and finances. Your internal defiance is asking you to open your eyes to a new way of being. Uranus energy is wanting us to search for personal freedom and detach from others.Its pushing us to be free of attachments. These attachments include, people, feelings, responsibilities, detach from situations and energies that don’t serve a purpose in our life anymore! It’s about evolution. However, under this influence we will be tempted to take quick, irrevocable actions that you will regret tomorrow. The key for today is don’t act impulsively, and use this energy to look at a situation with fresh new eyes and perspectives, there may be an answer to the issue that you haven’t yet seen.
Have a great day
