Tip of the Week:
The next New Moon occurs on July 20 and it will again be in the sign of Cancer. As common as a New Moon event is, it should be noted, that in the context of the whole chart, no two are EVER the same. This is very significant to understand. That is why despite the cyclic reality of time, life is ever revealing new themes, experiences, and episodes in general. These are all for the sake of our evolutionary growth as souls attending the ‘Earth
Although not an eclipse, it will prove powerful in a sobering a restrictive way as it will be opposed to the heavyweight and the authority of Saturn in its own sign of Capricorn and retrograde at that, adding even more weight, especially since it remains closely aligned with Pluto and Jupiter both also in Capricorn and both also
Understanding our own destiny within this context is what astrology is about. Yet, interestingly, our own Birth Chart, although it too is subject to the cycles of time, has a fixed quality linked to the moment of first breath. Perhaps this is your cue to take a closer look.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Some big changes have and will continue to roll in close to home. The pace has probably been quite mixed; hardly flat water. All the while, you have been pushing to forge ahead somehow. Attending to a variety of fronts continues to keep things interesting. You have things to say and you not only want to be heard, you want to be heeded. The main question is: are your views as objective as you may believe?
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
This time of year is all about quality time shared with family and friends. This time, travel is featured. Perhaps you are making the moves or they are. You are eager to break free of the past, yet it weighs heavily on you, within and perhaps without, as you make sincere efforts to be light and bright. In the deeper reaches, you have inner work to do which requires courage.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Over the past several weeks, you have taken a turn. It has and continues to prove to include a process of building new foundations. Whether this process is inner and figurative or outer and literal, or both, depends on you specifically and your circumstances. To you, it is always a matter of family first and that is probably where you are happiest to direct your attention and share your love.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
You find yourself taking new leads and strides. This process includes training which could be both for and by you. Yet, somehow you find yourself working behind the scenes. The projects include new approaches that you have probably not done before. Your feelings about it all may be a bit mixed and your confidence levels are wavering. Positively, you are enjoying the challenge.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
You remain largely focused on activities behind the scenes. Yet, your outreach may be extended more broadly. The revolutionary pace and reality of change in the world have your attention. You feel called somehow to contribute, to make a difference, one that is perhaps larger than you would usually. Expect this to continue, yet your front, focus, and approach may change, but not yet.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Your career is calling. Or, it could be your participation in social and public events. Either way, circumstances require you to take a powerful lead. This includes others. These may include teachers and mentors and you are wise to honor their authority. Either way, you have work to do. Mercury retrograde has probably not helped with your focus, but that cycle is now over. Get to work!
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
Circumstances are causing you to pay closer attention to the details, yet of the bigger picture. A philosophical and/or journalistic process is implied. This probably includes seeing through and beyond your own biases. Have you genuinely looked at other sides of the issue? Are you truly listening or are you dismissive of others and other perspectives and, if so, why? What are your attachments?
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
You may find yourself squarely dealing with important choices that you must make. Essentially, some point to a higher road and some to a lower one. In the short-term, the higher road may be harder, yet will bring greater rewards, later. While you feel drawn to family, you must also honor your own sense of individuality. Change in this regard is featured and you may by now be dealing with the results of it.
Sagittarius (Nov 22–Dec 21)
Some deep processes are churning within. These are probably more emotional and psychological, but they could also include biological and chemical shifts. Either way, you are drawn to engage with others in ways that are already resulting in changes in your lifestyle and/or literally in your home. Building projects are a very real possibility. You do want it done but may not want to do it.
Capricorn (Dec 22–Jan 19)
You have begun a process of stepping out of the shadows somehow. It can be described as acting upon dreams and visions that have been brewing for a long time. Yet, you may be getting a very mixed review. You may wonder why, yet upon closer observation, you may come to see their perspectives and through your own blind spots. Will you fight your own demons or direct your focus externally?
Aquarius (Jan 20–Feb 19)
You are receiving a call to be more creative. Answering it does include a steady process of shifts and changes in your lifestyle. These have required an added measure of critical thinking over the past several weeks. Positively, circumstances have supported you to do just that. Shifting from existing routines into more satisfying activity holds great appeal and you feel inspired about the possibilities.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
Somehow, you have been called home. This may be true literally, yet it may also be figurative. Everyone has been dealing with the confusions caused by Mercury retrograde in Cancer over the past several weeks, yet now the confusion is lifting. Things are getting clearer, albeit still slowly. You are enthusiastic to learn, but if this is to prove truly integral, you will have to work to see through your own biases.
