Tip of the Week:
The New Moon in Cancer occurs on July 9. Since the Moon rules the sign of mothering, nurturing, family, ancestry, home and security, these themes are emphasized when it transits through its own sign. During its annual conjunction to the Sun in this sign of nurses, healers, empaths, counselors and nurturers in general, it sows a celestial seed cycle that activates the impulse for families to gather. Sadly, we live in a world that has found reason to name a terrible disease after this most significant and precious sign
In this chart, Venus and Mars are closely aligned in Leo and will form an exact conjunction on July 13, adding a playful, passionate and romantic theme to the plot. The exact degree of the New Moon activates Scorpio and Taurus, the money signs. With Pluto in big’ daddy Capricorn and maintaining a lead position, we are likely to see more harsh measures and power plays. If only safety and security were the true motives, but as with the disease called Cancer, contradictions and inversions will likely persist.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Yes, you want to huddle-in close to home and yes, it may involve a deeper cycle of reflection. Yet, you also want to get out and play and have some fun in the sun. Since drama on the airwaves has become the new norm, it will still be there when you return so… carpe diem! Focus on quality over quantity for best results and show the ones your love just how much you truly do.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Many thoughts about what constitutes true security and how you can achieve it are on your mind. You are willing to do the work and dig deep and make whatever changes you deem necessary. As much as you yearn for peace, ease and flow, you know that it comes at a price and you are willing to engage your own efforts and talents.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Reconsidering what you deem important has been a persistent theme. Upon reflection, you may realize that some of your perspectives have shifted over the past several weeks. Questioning the popular narrative more than you did previously is likely. Yet, you also want to enjoy life more and make the most of the season.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
The New Moon in your sign indicates the urge to take new leads and initiatives. These will likely include others, especially your significant other. If there is no one occupying that position, you may want there to be, more than usual. Whether quality time shared with a friend or someone closer you yearn for beauty and passion to spice-up your life.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Balancing the urge to retreat with an equally strong impulse to venture out and explore new territory is a central theme now. What sort of unchartered territory you want to explore is for you to decide. Dreams, ideals, and fantasies too, are all likely categories. Desiring fulfillment is natural and sometimes the urge is much stronger than others, like now.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Your sense of individuality is increasing steadily now and this trend will continue.

Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)

These will likely trigger memories of past relationships as well, offering you a fresh opportunity to observe how much you and others have changed along the way. Yet, the main question now is: what next?
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
