New Moon in Cancer – Friday, June 27

New Moon in Cancer, June 27, 2014, 3:09 am EDT

At NEW MOON, a new cycle begins and sets the tone for the lunar month.

When the Sun and Moon are in Cancer – home, family, comfort and security are in the spotlight. It’s important to slow down and “catch up” with ourselves. During this New Moon, the Cancer Sun and Moon are in harmony with Neptune – intuition is open and it’s a good time to tune into our inner wisdom. Using creative means of expression – through meditation, writing, painting, listening to inspiring music and so on – opens us up to deeper perceptions.

The Moon moves quickly and will soon be out of Neptune’s influence. The Sun will be in harmony with Neptune until July 2. It’s timely to use this refined energy and make our lives more meaningful in personal ways, with our friends and families- and in taking action to better our world in whichever ways work for us.

Until July 7 – the Cancer SUN will be opposite PLUTO in Capricorn. This can signify that we may too easily get emotionally involved in power struggles. Now is not the time to insist on being “right.” [Actually that’s true for any time!] With Pluto opposite the Sun – confrontations can spring up easily. MARS opposes volatile URANUS until July 6 – which only kindles the flames. With Mars (taking individual initiative) in the sign of Libra (cooperation with others) – impatience can lead to actions we may later regret. Uranus is in Aries – fire sign ruler of Mars. These oppositional energies are over-stimulating and frustrations can escalate.

What to do? Gratitude is a powerful antidote to anger and righteousness. We have a choice on how to handle the “competing” energies. We can be in touch with the harmony between the Sun and Moon with Neptune and focus on our inner wisdom and intuitive knowing. Or we can be swept up in the confrontational energies of the Sun opposite Pluto and Mars opposite Uranus. It’s important to tune in to our higher aspirations and considerations – and follow our inner compass. Sometimes it’s hard to appreciate that oppositions are projections – and we can become the “wrathful” ones – full of indignation. Of course there’s much injustice and suffering in the world – so it’s important to address social, environmental, political and other issues – while being the peace we want to create in the world.

Mercury is completing its retrograde cycle at the end of this month and will begin moving forward July 1. It’s still a good time for reviewing documents, reorganizing our thoughts and getting ready for the forward momentum coming soon.

Venus is moving through social Gemini until July 19. It’s a good time to gather with friends and families and enjoy the summer (in the Northern Hemisphere). There can be some disappointments in relationships as Neptune squares Venus until July 2. We may have great hopes for those we care about – and need to learn to accept people as they are – rather than having expectations that can’t and won’t be met.

Chiron the “wounded healer” is moving through the water sign of Pisces until February 2019. We are exposing and experiencing our wounded-ness globally through our very contaminated rivers, lakes and oceans. And – this trauma is being played out everywhere with increasing suffering in the world – of people, animals and our ailing Planet. We need to address and heal our wounds as well as do whatever it takes to help others.

In summary – we’re beginning this New Moon cycle with emotional vulnerability. It’s time to slow down and be quiet and listen to our intuitive wisdom – we all have it. There’s so much volatility right now that it’s important for us to come from a stable place within ourselves. Being calm and loving adds to the stabilization of our immediate environment. Running around and being reactive will add to the chaos! We do have the power to choose – moment by moment.

After many years of being a professional Astrologer, I’m still constantly amazed at how helpful it is to become familiar with our birth charts. Our charts show the patterns we came in with at birth. What lessons are we here to learn? How can we understand our “purpose” in being here? How can we make the most of this sacred opportunity?

Understanding our birth charts helps clarify the nature of our struggles and the nature of our gifts . What are our strengths and where do we get stuck? What are the timings for each planetary cycle and how are we affected? Deeper self-knowledge is vital for developing acceptance and compassion for ourselves and others. Astrology helps us remember that the challenges we face are cyclical – and it highlights opportunities where we can learn and grow.

I look forward to hearing from you!
