June 28,2022 New Moon in Cancer

The Moon loves to be in Cancer, at
home, comfortable, protected and
safe. The Sun 07 °and Moon 07 in
Cancer mark a time of gut
instincts and faith. A New Moon in
water element of Cancer, is birthing
the next chapter in this lunation
cycle. The Sun & Moon are square
to Jupiter 07 Aries~ we can feel
quite optimistic about this fresh
start to the month. Jupiter in Aries
can be exciting and impulsive
energy to fire up the new project or
plan that is hatching.Confidence is
certainly extra high during this New
Moon phase, the Moon is way Out
of Bounds at 26’53’ declination. It’s
normal range in orbit is 23’26’.

Jupiter in Aries 07 sextile ( energizes ) Venus in Gemini 07 through social networking and
communications about plans,
journeys, gatherings are topics
connecting to the emotional
context of this Cancer New Moon.
This feels like a reunion or big
gathering.
Thursday morning Cancer Moon
still Out of Bounds- which indicates
emotional energy that can be
passionate, exaggerated,
spontaneous and brings urgency
when connecting with our needs.
The Cancer Moon at 11:50 AM June
30th, squares Mars Aries 26 °, and
then moves to Opposes Pluto in
Capricorn 27 °-The challenge would
be to focus on your personal
comfort level, listen to your gut
instinct and what is true for you.
Like a Sea Turtle, at home in the
Ocean, she is very comfortable, and
tuned into danger on a daily basis.
She survived many natural
predators since birth.

Females Sea Turtles are estimated to give birth
to thousands of eggs over a
lifetime-only 1 out of a 1,000
hatchlings survive to be an adult.
Big, “out of bounds respect” for the
Mother energy, follow your instinct.

Friday, the Moon in Aquarius, ruled
by Saturn in Aquarius Retrograde
Good day to work independently or
revisit technology you used in the
past to solve present
issues.Aquarius Moon tends to be
more objective and not focused on
emotional realm. This changes
when the Moon enters Pisces
Saturday evening at 7:01pm est
Pisces Moon taps into emotions
intuitively. A felt experience. Venus
in Taurus squares Saturn in Aquarius on
Saturday
5:25 pm est
Keep expectations in check,try to
be realistic with relationship issues
this weekend ~ the desire to do
what “we” want is strong~ be
honest about your needs. Late
Saturday night, Venus in Taurus
sextile Neptune in Pisces can be the
restorative balm, smoothing over
any disagreement in
relationships.

Neptune is the higher
octave of Venus-who naturally is
exalted in Pisces, there is a
compromise. Especially with Moon
in Pisces passing through…Dreams
can point to unconditional love.
Sunday, builds deeper connections
with Venus in Taurus applying to
harmonious trine with Retrograde
Pluto in Capricorn. Feelings bubble
up, memories, the truth of
emotions, we can understand a
deeper sense of connection ~ from
a current or past relationship.
Wisdom of how we relate can be
enlightening, when looking back at
past relationships.

Peace to all,

Laura

Mercury-The messenger of the
Gods, finally makes it back home to
Gemini, after stationing direct in
Taurus. It was slow going, now back
up to speed on Monday at 11:26am
EST .

Communications are
clearer. Gemini Sun in an applying
trine to Saturn in Aquarius can be a
time of progress, where we had to
remain patient. Time to get things
done, this aspect is exact on
Thursday June 16th 2:49am EST

Full Moon June 14th at 7:51am EST
Neptune in Pisces is in a T-square
configuration with the Full Moon in
Sagittarius. Neptune is
challenging our focus and
consistency ~maybe a little blurry
with details. With this in mind, use
the strong Mercurial energy to keep
things organized by simply
communicating.

Nevertheless,
celebrate this Full Moon as its ruler
Jupiter, explores through the
energy of self willed Aries, happy to try something new.

Mars in Aries
conjoins Chiron directing some
wisdom or healing energy into the
SuperStrawberryMoon! It will be very bright as it is in Perigee, the point at which the Moon is closest in its orbit to the Earth. 🌕

Peace to all~ Laura

May 15/16 Scorpio Full Moon Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse /Full Moon will occur on May 16th, Just after midnight here on the
East coast. At 25° Scorpio Moon/25 ° Taurus Sun.
Eclipse’s have a history of being
a wildcard, as the brightest
phase of the Moon disappears
temporarily. *Mars in Pisces
rules this Full Moon and is
conjunct Neptune together they
Trine the Scorpio Moon,
Increasing sensitivity and
strengthening our intuition.
This Scorpio Total Lunar Eclipse
is on the South Node, symbolic
of release, completion and
letting go. This signals a new
cycle to begin.
In the sign of Scorpio we get clues of what we need to release from our emotional
habits, feelings we hold on to,
triggers connected with the
past. Trying to save or hold on to
that familiar something- that
keeps us stuck in the past, is a
scenario worth looking at.
Creating a new feeling around
old issues would be good
Saturn work this weekend.
(Saturn=lessons learned
=maturity)

The Taurus Sun seeks to
simplify, slow down and release
tension, enjoying the present
moment.
Saturn in Aquarius squares both
Sun & Moon~ Saturn
reminds us that relationships &
work both need time and effort-
making responsible
adjustments so you can balance
the Scorpio/Taurus houses in
your chart.

Knowing your birth chart and contemplating where these energies are- help us unfold (peel the onion) and assist with personal growth,

Peace,

Laura

Today the Moon in Aquarius makes
configurations to Saturn 23
Aquarius, Mercury 23 Taurus and
the Nodes of Moon~ 22 Taurus/

with Saturn we can feel the weight
of responsibility or duty, a
necessary part of success
~ at this time Saturn squares the Nodes and
Mercury, suggesting memories and
past wisdom or lessons
experienced, that reminds us we
can reap benefits through
compassionate action. Saturn slows
things down to examine, Mercury in
Taurus is of a contemplative nature,
think it out -trust the high road

March 2, 2022 New Moon in Pisces

March 2, 2022
Pisces New Moon
Conjunct Jupiter 12:34pm (est)
This New Moon symbolizes a
pause, a germination period of
creation. What is inspiring you? A
new beginning, a new month, a new
intention, a new insight, a new
understanding of what is possible?
Pisces creates with hope, love,
empathy, compassion,
understanding, and faith. Applying
to Jupiter in Pisces, we can ask for
miracles. Why not?? A leap in faith?
We can pray for Peace. Yes please.
During a New Moon, we plant seeds
of intention towards what we would
like to manifest and grow. Healing is
possible when the boundaries are
elusive, as they are in Pisces A
move through this period and send
prayers for what needs healing.

We have plenty of obligations and
responsibilities in this current
timeframe all answering to Saturn,
we know this timeframe is serious
business, we need to keep on the
program an do the diligent work.


But….Sun & Moon & Jupiter &
Neptune all in Pisces are singing
another tune.
All they are saying is give Peace a
chance

☮️

Peace

The Albatross is the largest flying
bird, with a wingspan of 11 feet,
they spend 80% of there time at
sea, mostly in flight. They can soar
on motionless wings for hours.
These birds mate for life yet there
journeys cover millions of miles.
chose this oracle card today from
Chip Richards deck (Secret
language of Animals) “The
inspiration is renewed hope and the
promise of good fortune for the
path ahead. It takes courage to set
out on a new journey of any kind
and Albatross knows that
sometimes we must travel far
beyond the shores of our comfort
zone before we catch a glimpse of
our aspired destination”

We all know Valentines Day can
come with high expectations, the
waxing Gibbous Moon in Leo, a time
of heightened emotions is building
to a Full Moon at 27 degrees Leo
on February 16.
Today the Moon Opposite Mercury
in last degree of Capricorn soon to
enter Aquarius.(4:54pm) Thinking
of the bigger picture, choose your
words with compassion and
kindness above all. Mercury in
Capricorn this morning is speaking
practically and less poetic. Mercury
in Aquarius tonight shifts into more
open minded dialogue.
Venus/ Mars conjunction in
Capricorn February 15, (and again
March 6 in Aquarius)
We have a serious opportunity of
getting real about building
something we love and believe in.

December 19- January 31st was the Venus Retrograde period, did you
make decisions that upgraded or
reorganized your relationships or
finances? In the background Pluto
in Capricorn trine the North Node
Taurus, feels like Albatross
medicine, endurance and courage
to take a leap of faith. February 17
Jupiter in Pisces sextile Uranus in
Taurus encounter a similar energy
of unexpected opportunities or
changes that entice you to keep
moving towards your goals.

Happy Valentine’s Day 💜 Be kind
