Hello world!

This site will bring you some interesting and timely posts about what is going on in the Heavens — I love studying astrology, and I enjoy passing on the information I have gleaned from the moving planets in aspect to the sun and moon and each other.  Even if you feel this kind of post isn’t for you — if you give it a try, you might find it amusing, informative, downright accurate, or just a good way to pass a couple of lazy minutes on your computer. 

I have found over the years that much of what goes on in the ether does affect the happenings here on planet Earth — much depends on the sign you were born under and what aspects are in your own personal natal chart.  You can get your natal chart free from many sites on the internet — and learning where your sun and moon are located, along with the sign that was rising at the time of your birth will give you a heads up as to what cycle you are now going through. 

There are many cycles that the planets bring to us, Saturn, for instance (I call it the “learning” planet — has a cycle of approximately 28 to 30 years) — by the time we are 30 we have experienced the planets influence in each house of our natal chart.  It’s no wonder that the Hippies of the 60’s quipped “Don’t trust anyone over 30” — we are changed because of our having been through the many and varied, sometimes difficult lessons of Saturn throughout our charts.

Also there is a magnificent opposition from the planet Uranus at age 42 (give or take a year) that challenges us — can we say “mid-life crisis”?  This year is often fraught with changes that we might be less that anxious to have happen.  Yet the planet Uranus doesn’t bring a change unless it is going to build us a newer and stronger foundation.  It is part of the building blocks of our journey throughout this lifetimes path. 

We can accept and grow with the help of the Universal forces, or we can challenge the energies and find ourselves at odds with our true and natural path.  In astrology there is a saying “As above — so below” … this doesn’t mean we have no free will — it only shows us that by following the natural harmony of the galaxy, we can flourish and meet all of our expectations — or we can rale against the forces and be held accountable in many formidable ways.  The stars may impel, but they do not compel any actions or beliefs. 

The world is our oyster, there is so much for the taking, so much beauty, knowledge, fun and happiness to be garnered from our lifetime here, if we but choose to be aware and partake of its bounty.

I hope you will join me in opening up the mysteries and secrets of the Universe as we all travel on this tiny blue planet called Earth — it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to get it right, we have the choice, the right, and the means to become our best selves, and to find our place in the Universe.  Lets all gear up and promise ourselves we will choose to become the ultimate human being we are meant to be — awesomeness is an option — let it be you!

Welcome fellow searchers for the truth — it is out there…

 

Weather Gal — By Jone Victoria — September 2, 2009

Controlling weather is what I like to call “Big Talent”. As a child I was fascinated with the weather and how it affected my body. When late summer hurricanes formed, I could feel the barometric pressure changing with a strange hissing buzz inside of my head. People talking would sound like my head was underwater, and cause a slightly sickening feeling within my stomach.

Rain, depending on what kind it is, impacts me as well, always did. If it’s a torrential downpour, with thunder and lightning, the hair on the back of my neck gets all tingly and charged up. My scalp can feel the static electricity as it moves along the shafts of my hair to the ends. Not unlike Medusa, my hair gets all charged and my skin feels prickly.

If it’s a light rain, nearly silent and windless, then my lungs feel open as if I am breathing pure oxygen; it makes me giddy and high.

Pelting rain is refreshing and cleansing. I love how the water hits the pavement with such force it bounces back up into itself. Witnessing this, I wrote “Water popcorn bursts from hot tar.” …yeah, nobody got that, but isn’t writing really therapy for yourself?

Then there’s the strange weather, the weather that slips onto your body like a black oilskin Duster. The colors of a black, blue and kidney red sky blocks out light with a cloaked sensation. The dark energy rides on the swirling wind making you look behind you with the trepidation of seeing something other-worldly; something invasive that doesn’t belong. It’s the sense that you aren’t alone and that unseen beings have been let out of the gate from the Underworld.

When I was a teenager, I read that weather witches of old would dip their broom bristles in the sea and reciting incantations would raise their broom to the sky to call forth storms. One day I went to the Cape with my broom in hand (no, I didn’t fly there), and tried it knowing full well the forecast called for a clear, star filled night. Within two hours a storm came from an easterly direction and rained to beat the band. The power of intent.

Another time I was taught a song that was guaranteed to make it rain. I used to sing it quite a bit to keep in practice of storm raising — it rarely failed me.

Then there is using your mind to dissipate small clouds, or using your crystal weather wand to move large bands of cloud cover quickly, allowing the Sun to shine for your outdoor event.

Weather manipulation — some have it, some do not. America’s Got Talent, I laugh upon you.

 

Here in New England the weather is a constant topic of conversation — especially during those heat waves of mid-summer, or the wintry snowy storms of deep winter. We always check our weather shows (or nowadays our apps) to see if there will be a sprinkle of rain, or if there is an oncoming hurricane — a dusting of snow or a full blown blizzard. I’m not sure if this is the same throughout the States, but in New England weather is our one constant companion — the most frequently heard statement is “If you don’t like the weather, just wait a minute” — a paean to the capricious changes often happening without warning!

Of course, controlling the weather is a wondrous thing — I remember when our large extended family would plan a reunion — usually in the Summertime when most folks have time off — and I would begin my mental gymnastics in order to have good weather for the event! For several occasions, the day was sunny but quite hot 90 degrees F or more — and on one such reunion, my cousin Willy asked if I was focusing on good weather — I answered in the affirmative, and she said — well so am I — perhaps just one of us could try — and it would be sunny but less hot! We both got a chuckle out of that — and I left the weather for the other reunions in her able hands.

I have to admit to a checkered ability in adopting my own agenda with the weather; when two of my daughters were graduating and we planned a double party — I really wanted it to be sunny so we could use the outdoors and the pool — Mother Nature over-rode my requests and it poured every weekend for several weeks prior to and including our party date — on the occasion, our house was over-filled with family and friends (and even some drop ins), since everyone was so frustrated and burnt out from the many rainy weekends preceding our event. I believe it might have been one of the most successful and enjoyable times we ever had. Everyone was so happy just to be out of their usual routines, that they all were ready to party and enjoy every minute!   So perhaps sometimes Mother Nature knows best!

Lady Venus Enters Leo — July 12th 2016

What a change for Lady Venus to enter Fixed Fiery Leo, whilst in Watery Cardinal Cancer she is our loving Mother, Madonna, Lady, Nurturer, and Mother Nature — all rolled into one — whoosh — when she enters Leo, she becomes a Goddess, Lover, Coquette, Ultra-feminine, Dazzling, Confident, CEO, Mother Lioness, Tiger Mom, Intense, Fixated, Goal oriented and a Force to be Reckoned With! Lady Venus in Leo can light up a room just by entering it, and all heads will turn to observe this beauty with her golden aura and poised and self-assured stance. Lady Venus enters Leo on the 12th at 12:35 AM EST (add one hour for DST).

However, surface beauty is not her only attribute, indeed this Lady Venus also is endowed with brains and a focused mind. Goal oriented, loving, able to take care of herself and her loved ones, fierce in her desire to be protective and affectionate at the same time. There is a bit of control in her makeup, but usually her ideas and actions are in the best interest of her family. Often fixed in her opinions, she has the ability to listen to reason and then make up her mind when all of the facts have been fully explained. Fair, balanced and emotionally available — our Lady Venus in Leo seems to have it all.

Look to your chart to see where Leo lives, and when Lady Venus passes over the threshold, you will find more beauty, love, intensity, passion, and kindness revealed. If it is in your 4th house of foundations and home base, you may be re-doing a room or your whole domain. With the help of Lady Venus here, it will all be in good taste and refined. In your 10th house of social activity and career — you may find a mentor or someone who will boost you to the next level in whatever area you are interested in pursuing. If Lady Venus is in your 7th house of partnerships, you may find yourself and your mate/partner/spouse renewing your vows, going on a longed for vacation, or just getting along better with more compatible ideas being shared.

As Lady Venus enters Leo on the 12th — she is followed closely by Mercury entering Leo on the 13th  at 7:47 PM EST. Together they ride along in the sky until joining up on the 16th at 5 degrees of Leo at 8:32 AM EST — we can use this dynamic combo working in concert to perk up our conversations with loved ones, stating our intentions or exasperation with loving yet distinct verbiage. Lady Venus will allow us to be sensitive to our loved ones issues but also let us be realistic about their individual and perhaps egotistical goals, and Mercury in Leo will give us the “gift of gab” in order to let them know in a loving, but with no uncertain-terms, just what we think of their current behavior, and how it is impacting your life. Allow both Mercury and Venus to help you to clear up any vague or unclear issues that have been bugging you — they will give you the passionate and emotional ability to express your feelings with words that are clear, concise and to the point. It’s not your job to try to assuage those who are acting in a selfish or childish manner — indeed — you have the right to assert your own agenda when you are being victimized by bullying tactics or petty conflicts that are just posturing, self-centered and narcissistic. Venus and Mercury in Leo will give you the strength and bravery of a Lioness protecting her young! You are Woman — we hear you roar!

Mercury then moves on quickly outstripping Lady Venus’ more stately pace — Mercury will enter Virgo on the 30th whilst Lady Venus takes her time moving through bold and fiery Leo, before moving into staid and precise Virgo on August 5th. The Full Moon crests in Capricorn during the evening rush hour of the 19th bringing its usual kind of upsetting chaos, and the moon is void of course also — creating more of a volatile landscape — we all should be aware of our environment and what is going on around us in order to avoid those who may be out of control or angry at the world. Fortunately the following morning we have a Venus in Leo trine Saturn in Sagittarius aspect that can help us overcome any dust-ups that were festering as we can circumvent any conflict with our affection and wisdom.

On the 29th a Venus/Jupiter meeting will give us a momentary respite from any angst that has been front and center. We can come to agreement with those we have been at odds with and our minds and hearts will be free to enjoy the coming weekend. The Planet Uranus will turn Retrograde in the late afternoon of the 29th and remain so until December 28th — thus giving us a breather from the intensity of the Pluto/Uranus square that has been causing distress. There will be a period of more calm where people will be able to curb their knee-jerk reactions when angry and will have a more measured idea of what they want to express without rancor. Perhaps — we all can use this time-span to look into our hearts to find that trigger point of frustration that makes us fly off the handle and hurt those whom we love the most with our harsh words and thoughtless actions.

The month ends with Lady Venus in good aspect to mighty Uranus in the late evening helping us to appreciate our good fortune, to enjoy our blessings, and to look forward to an exciting and productive future. Mars enters Sagittarius on the 2nd of August, also bringing us an upbeat approach to our future ideals and ideas. Working within the framework of the Galaxial harmonics we can bring more positive vibrations into our lives, and we can learn to avoid those instances of frustration and angst that seem to drag us down so often. Find your most positive rhythm within the beautiful cadence of the planetary movements, and you will find your bliss.

Hint — meet your Lady Venus in Leo at the country club, running the PTA, selling expensive real-estate, buying jewelry, sitting in the Sun, dining on a seaside patio, running for political office, buying yellow and gold flowers, eating chocolate, driving a bright yellow sports car, at a farmer’s market, shopping, helping at a food pantry, at an art gallery or book store, running her own business, and creating amazing interiors (in tones of gold of course)!

 

New Moon in Cancer Reminder — July 4th 2016

Don’t want anyone to miss this blockbuster New Moon in Cancer — you can use the energy and power of the Sun and Moon to enhance and better your own life and the lives of your loved ones — simply write out a list of your wishes, dreams, affirmations and desires! It’s best if you have thought about what would make your life more positive, healthier, and happier.

Take a quiet moment to sit and contemplate your future — where do you want to be next year, in five years or in ten years? How do you plan on arriving at the zenith of your dreams? You know you will have to have a good plan, you will have to work hard towards achieving certain objectives along the way, and you will need to make certain that those you love are on board and willing to help.

And since it is Independence Day — perhaps we all can make a wish for more kindness and acceptance for all of humankind, and for Peace throughout the World!

Happy 4th of July!

New Moon in Cancer — July 4th, 2016

With the Sun and the Moon in watery Cancer on the 4th, you can be sure that a lot of emotion, strong feelings, and family ties will be vying for prominence during this time span. Especially as it coincides with our Independence Day celebration on the Fourth of July! There will be parades, memorial celebrations, and of course, family parties, barbecues, and picnics that will help us celebrate our freedom, our democracy, and our independence — and it will also help to get families together during this pleasant time of year when outdoor fun and games are available to all. Even if it’s only sitting in the back yard under a shady tree, we can remember past times, contemplate our future and enjoy our todays!

The New Moon crests at 6:02 AM EST (add one hour for DST), at 12 degrees of the sign Cancer — it is riding with Mercury, and opposite Pluto. This combination has a mighty Pluto punch that increases the power of this month’s New Moon energy. Especially with Mercury in the mix, we might find that we need to express our opinions on the current state of affairs in the world, or want to bring up old family issues. It truly would be in everyone’s best interest if we could hold-our-tongues, and let the holiday weekend be just for celebrating our Country’s independence, and connecting with our family. Sometimes it is what isn’t said that will eventually hold the most power, and help us find our ability to seek our own place in the Universe — not blaming someone else, not angry at life’s inequalities, not berating our loved ones for not doing what we thought they should have done. I believe most of us are trying really hard to do our best in this lifetime, to do our best for ourselves, our family, our friends, and our karma. Of course, no-one can be 100% there for everyone at every time. But, we try — we fail — we atone — we grieve our insufficiency. Still we give this lifetime our all — and we cannot decry who we are, or how much we can give. We just do our best at any given time, place, or occurrence. That said, we all know that the New Moon gives us the opportunity to do something positive for ourselves and our loved ones.

We have a beautiful aspect between Neptune and Pluto that can bring us imaginative ideas and creative concepts that can help us to bring some of our dreams into reality. Don’t negate any thoughts that randomly waft through your mind in dreams or in meditation — the Universe is giving you these notions in order to show you your natural abilities. Also Jupiter in in a positive journey with Pluto that makes our hard work bring rewards. Use the spiritual input from these Planets to enhance your chances for success.

As the month moves on, Lady Venus entering Leo on the 12th, followed by Mercury on the 13th and then the Sun on the 22nd will give us an exceptional boost of creative energy that will allow us to tap into our deepest spiritually inspired originality. All of this fiery power can inspire us to reach new heights of wonder and magic. Tap into these gifts of the Universe in order to reach those goals that have seemed elusive until now. Write out your affirmations, dreams, desires, and wishes with the energy of the New Moon in Cardinal Cancer, and follow up with the Fiery Fixed and determined sovereignty of Leo!

Since our New Moon is in Cancer, you can tailor your wishes to coincide with a Cancerian theme: family, friends, co-workers, deepest desires, vacations by the water, good health, a happy outlook, more emotional support, a better relationship with family or friends. Indeed — if you want a better working environment, you may want to draw toward yourself more compatible people who understand your goals; better family relationships — ask that any petty problems be cleared up for good, so you all can move on; need a vacation — by all means draw toward yourself a weekend by the ocean or a lakeside cottage for a week. Any and all ideas are able to be put into the ether to be whisked into the Galaxial mists to become your reality.

Meditate, contemplate and ideate all of your wishes and/or dreams. You can bring favorable changes into your realm for the better. Include those you love in your requests and affirmations in order to keep the flow of positive, confident and optimistic energy heading toward you and yours.

The New Moon in Cancer crests at 6:02 AM EST — so all day is powerful to write out your affirmations and wishes, the sooner after the New Moon crests will be the most influential in getting your desires into the ethereal mists. Try to get this one done — and the faster you will feel the positive emanations returning to you. Good luck!

Happy 4th of July!

July’s Astrological Activity

July starts off with a New Moon in the sign Cancer on the 4th — what a great way to celebrate our Independence Day! The sign Cancer has so much to do with Mother, home, family, motherland — that it seems appropriate that we can combine this New Moon with our holiday celebrations. We may feel a bit more emotional and patriotic as the parades pass by with all the Veterans of earlier wars, and those currently serving our Country who willingly put themselves in harms way. Our Nation would not be as secure or as free without the efforts and sacrifices of our brave Army, Navy, Marines and Air Force. I have a great respect for those who serve — Thank You!

Now to the ongoing astrological events taking place in the month of July — the New Moon in Cancer is at 12 degrees and crests on the 4th at 6:02 AM EST (add one hour for DST) — it rides along with Mercury the Planet of communication, transportation and literary/educational matters. Opposing mighty little Pluto it carries a lot of oomph! There may be a media blitz when a juicy news story is aired, and a fire storm of conflict ensues. I usually feel the New Moon brings  a positive new lunar cycle that is like a freshening breeze — but with celebratory crowds there can be opposition to someone’s point of view — so we must watch our words and not become inflamed because of  any over-the-top rhetoric that may be said. Maintain a rational outlook in order to avoid those who would incite any controversy about government, religion, or the economy! All major button-pushers for many folks — enjoy your time with family, friends and acquaintances with the knowledge that what isn’t said does not have to be apologized for or taken back! Hmm — perhaps some of our “leaders” could use a pep talk about this subject! Just sayin’! I have to reiterate that we all should watch our words and conversations for the next few weeks, as we may be misunderstood or misquoted. Hopefully those hearing an incorrect or disingenuous remark will consider the source and get the true information from whomever was the original speaker.

A nice Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Scorpio aspect on the 5th in mid-afternoon, will help us to talk to someone who seemed a bit daunting, but as conversation develops, we find many social and other interesting connections. The morning commute on the 7th may be a bit of a struggle as many drivers seem to feel that they are entitled to the entire roadway. Late on Saturday the 9th a nice Moon and Venus aspect meets with up with a Sun and Jupiter sextile early on the 10th, that can make us enjoy the company we are with and brings good fellowship. Lady Venus enters Leo early on the 12th, changing our motherly Venus in Cancer into a Leonine bombshell of beauty and brains. At breakfast time on the 16th the Sun and Uranus clash  perhaps bringing out someone’s frustration and angst. a good aspect between Mercury and Venus later in the day will have the power to smooth any ruffled feathers. The Sun trining Mars during the late evening brings conciliation and loving vibes.On the 20th a positive meeting between Venus in Leo and Saturn in Sagittarius will highlight stability, a loving connection and commitment to family. The Sun enters Leo on the 22nd allowing us to think more about having summertime fun in the sun, and doing those things that make us happy. The late afternoon of the 29th has us dealing with Mercury in a fit of pique with Mars — both in Fixed signs mean that no-one wants to give in to the other, watch out for road rage incidents. Venus meeting up with Jupiter allows us a lighter look at life’s inequities. Uranus is Stationary Direct and will start to begin forward motion — allow a few days to feel the more positive vibrations from this quirky Planet. Mercury enters Virgo on the 30th, giving us a more focused approach to any issue — and a more precise use of our language capabilities. This month ends with a late night Venus/Uranus trine — perhaps bringing someone new into our realm — you will want to express your own ideas, want autonomy, and will need to find your own idea of perfection.

The July Full Moon crests on the 19th at 27 degrees of Capricorn in a negative aspect toward Uranus at 24 degrees of Aries. If you have any Planets at these degrees it behooves you to be aware of sudden changes in plans, and to use equanimity when deciding in what direction to go. The House placement will have a lot to do with the area that may be affected. Check your chart for a clue as to what your particular irritation may be.

Mars is now moving direct in Scorpio, helping us to get back on track — any delays you’ve experienced or plans that just weren’t working out at a past time may get a new chance. It may be a bumpy road, but with determination and hard work, you will find a way to reach your goals. You may find you don’t have the backing that you expected, but give it time and those who failed to see the practicality of your dream may begin to “get it“!

Jupiter in Virgo is in good aspect to Pluto in Capricorn as is Mars, this mid-month  trio can and will assist us in relating to others, bring us opportunities, and will allow us to get a better picture of our goals. And although Saturn and Neptune are in a negative aspect to one another, practical Saturn in Sagittarius and imaginative Neptune in Pisces can work to help us make a pragmatic plan for our future dreams — indeed these two Planetary connections may bring some of our dreams into a realistic realm that will be able to be brought to fruition. Take some time to write down some of your ideas no matter how impractical they may seem, and try to bring in some of Saturn’s realistic common-sense into your plan. When imagination and proper planning are combined, magic can happen! Saturn is known to bring rewards for hard work and sticking to your highest ideals.

I’d have to say that the theme this month is to work hard and you will receive your rewards — but perhaps not immediately! Also — with the New England summertime in full blossom — we should try to be in touch with our nearest and dearest. Everyone should try to accept as many invitations to meet with family and friends as often as possible during this carefree time. Conversation is a two-way street, don’t let too much time pass before reconnecting with loved ones — even if it is only by phone or texting (sigh), it helps to keep the lines of communication open!

There seems to be a lightening of angst as the month comes to an end — allowing us to contemplate new adventures, new friends, and perhaps a new love interest. It may also be time to take up a new hobby, find a cause that touches your heart, or join a new group (book club, gym, animal rescue, art class, walking group, well — you get the idea). Look inward to find your bliss and move toward finding a way to bring it into your life. Hint — affirmations help — New Moon on the 4th!

Have a safe and happy Independence Day celebration!

 

 

Full Moon in Sagittarius — June 20th 2016

Just a heads-up for those planning a Father’s Day cookout or picnic — the Full Moon will crest at 29 degrees of Sagittarius on the 20th at 6:02 AM EST (add one hour for DST). A Sagittarian Full Moon is extremely strong with its Fiery Mutable profile. Opposite the Sun in Gemini, we also have the fractiousness of Gemini’s Airy persona! Since the Full Moon energy is so often felt a day or two before it actually comes to fruition, there will be a surfeit of powerful energy flowing through the ether during the weekend. Especially at the karmic 29th degree — an often more intense surge of lunar confusion and perhaps discord may abound. It is as if the Moon hesitates to move on to the next sign — building a powerhouse of dynamic strength, holding on with a vise-like grip on the sign it is in before hesitantly stepping  into the next sign of Capricorn.

The Moon does enter Capricorn at 6:55 AM EST, and the intensity of the Full Moon should dissipate quickly while in this staid and steady sign.

We all can try to use this prolific energy for fun family times, good and hearty laughter, and bonding with our loved ones! Good food, good company and good camaraderie is the secret to a wonderful celebration of Dads everywhere.

Happy Father’s Day to all Dads, Granddads, Stepdads, Great-Granddads and 1st time Dads — the adventure begins — may the Force be With You! 

Lady Venus Enters Cancer — June 17th 2016

At 2:39 PM EST (add one hour for DST) on June 17th, Lady Venus enters the fulsome sign of Cancer. Her frivolous time in Gemini has been fun and fanciful, fabulous and frenzied, fickle and fastidious. Such opposing feelings, awareness and excitement has been quite a tour de force for our spritely Lady Venus. She adores the ability to be flighty and a bit scattered, she loves that she can open her persona to the more frivolous things in life. After entering Cancer, she evolves into our Madonna, our matron, our mothers and our matriarch! She is Woman personified, female, fertile, fecund, feminine, filial, and fabulous. Lady Venus in Cancer is all things maternal and loving — she is born to conceive, to reproduce, to bring forth the next generation of humanity. Lady Venus in Cancer is our future and our past — our hope and our sorrows — our bodies and our spirit. She opens us to our deepest needs, she plumbs the abyss of our psyches, she brings us our most treasured moments of truth and honesty.

We all have the sign Cancer in our charts, look to the house where Venus is transiting to find how we will be impacted by her stay there. Lady Venus in Cancer brings us an awareness of our familial obligations, our love for our brethren, and an understanding that Love is all — Love is life — Love conquers fear, bias and anxiety! Try to absorb the highest form of Lady Venus in Cancer to raise your consciousness to a new level of empathy for all of mankind. No matter how different, no matter how foreign, no matter how disparate our traditions, our facades, our ideals, our lifestyles — we are all mere human beings — trying our best to survive — trying to be the best we can — trying to evolve into our highest selves! We all are Human BE-ings living each day to the ultimate limit of our abilities.

Lady Venus in Cancer raises the bar when it comes to our families — we become the leader, defender, moral base, sustainer and sustenance of our loved ones. Nothing is off the table — we will love them forever, care for them through the toughest fight, illness or tragedy — support them through all the stages of their lives — see that they are comfortable in any weather — maintain a healthy lifestyle with home cooked meals, baked goods and always see to it that they never feel alone or unloved. Lady Venus in Cancer is unconditional love in its most spiritual and holy nature. Heaven forfend if you darken the lives of a Venus in Cancer’s family — she will become a whirlwind of opposition to you — bringing all the forces of Mother Nature! She will smite you with a gentle smile, break down your defenses without striking a blow, and hasten your departure with a turn of her head — basically — you won’t know what hit you! Never come between a Venus in Cancer matriarch and her beloved family — her realm — her bastion of civilization — the consequences will be dire.

Our Lady Venus is moving forward with a hastened pace, and if we want to garner the most positive vibes from her motherly stay in Cancer we will have to act quickly as Lady Venus will enter the fiery and dynamic sign Leo on July 12th at 12:34 AM EST bringing a whole new persona to our maternal sovereign. On the 20th The Full Moon in late Sagittarius causes some early morning issues, and later the Moon in Capricorn opposing our Lady Venus in mid-afternoon can possibly cause a minor dust-up in a family squabble. The 24th brings Mars in Scorpio into play creating a few moments of irritation during the morning commute. On the 27th we have a beautiful Venus/Neptune trine at breakfast time that will bring inspiration, you also may have had a psychic dream about a loved one that brings you hope. An opposition to Pluto on the 30th in the late evening can be a struggle to hold on to your rights and can bring some division between you and yours. On July 1st Lady Venus in good aspect to Jupiter will get our holiday weekend off to a good start as we look forward to a joyful family get-together. The New Moon on the 4th of July will provide a needed burst of energy for our celebrations of our Nation’s birth, bringing families together at barbeques, fireworks displays, and parades. Lady Venus in Cancer  trines Mars in Scorpio on the 6th in mid-afternoon bringing someone we have been admiring from afar into our realm, perhaps a new interesting friendship will ensue. However, on the 7th Venus will be in a negative aspect to Uranus in the morning making us aware that the pathway we have chosen is diverting us toward new interests that are taking us away from our roots. The 8th and 9th bring us confusing and upsetting feelings about what we want and who we want in our lives. As Lady Venus prepares to enter Leo, we are ready for a change from dealing with family issues and angst — in Leo our Lady becomes her own person — knowing her true needs and desires and determined to reach her goals. Along with Mercury entering Leo on the 13th a whole new romantic and creative outlook becomes filled with possibilities.

Hint — find your Lady Venus in Cancer love at a tag sale, volunteering at an animal shelter, buying furniture for her home, looking for a safe car, at the beach, lake or ocean, crying at a chic flick, reading to a group of toddlers, helping a friend in need, taking parents to doctor’s appointments, meeting friends for lunch at a seafood restaurant, at an antique store, on a genealogical site, visiting elders at a retirement home, bringing cookies to a bake sale, running errands for a house-bound friend, or looking up at the stars through a telescope.

Blessings and Peace!
