July is a powerful month filled with transformation at its most divine karmic rebirth. We are building a new foundation for the new to bloom open. We have spent June releasing our old paradigms and now begin to crave out the road ahead. Since most of July is influenced by Cancer, we are feeling a shift in what we call ‘home’. Cancer is the the symbol of the crab and this small creature reminds us at times we can feel safe and protected in our shells and there are times we outgrow them and need to change. What are you hiding from? What parts of what you called home not serving you anymore? This rebirth energy will force you to start from scratch, even when you aren’t ready or know how too. It’s time for a reset in our lives.

 

As we begin this new journey, there is a magical spark this month from Jupiter and the Solar eclipse in the second week of July that has us feel that anything can happen and the world is our oyster. Although the Universe may be handling matters in its own hands, we learn to let go of control and let things unfold naturally. Release, release, release.

 

Jupiter the lord of optimism, expansion, growth and creativity turns direct on July 10th after being in a backspin since March. The time has come to set sail with this renewable energy to help us expand our horizons and be greeted by new opportunities. Time to set your sights higher and see yourself succeeding in the dreams that you have been wanting to manifest. This is the start of some beautiful creative energy. Embrace the shift and let this energy heal you through the eclipses.

 

There is a New Moon solar eclipse in Cancer on July 12th that has some alchemy energy that will transform what is holding you back into happiness and success. When solar and lunar eclipses happen on new and full moons, it creates a supercharge of energy which can last six months! The events that happened during this time are considered karmic for our growth and evolution.

 

This new moon is opposite Pluto which will dig deep into our wounds of fear. We may have an inner crisis with the change that will unfold. We may have to face our own shadow demon that we have been avoiding. There is nothing more beautiful than when you prove to yourself just how strong you are.

 

Even though Pluto is opposite to cause tension and pushing us to transform, the moon creates a beautiful Grand Trine in the sky creating miracles! This energy taps into the beauty of Venus, Saturn and Uranus making it a great time for love and long term relationships. Stability and closer bonds will grow. It’s also a great time to try something new! Find new creative hobbies and get involved with new people. The Grand Trine’s energy will keep your Pluto vibes calm and patient as you plan your step by step actions. This is a great day to experiment and get creative! Whatever creative energy you focus on this New Moon will lead to a big growth in your life with many great things to come.

 

Have your faith carry you through this month and know you are meant for better things. The Universe will reward those for the hard work they do within.

Miracles are possible!


Summer Solstice Rituals

We are leaping into a whole new soul cycle! Hello Summer! This Thursday the Northern Hemisphere celebrates the ancient past time of the Summer Solstice, the day with the most light. The Winter Solstice is when we have the shortest day and longer nights, and the Spring and Fall Equinox are days of perfect balance of day and night. Many sites around the world from as far back as time have been built in honor of the Sun. It’s one of my dreams to celebrate the Summer Solstice at Stonehenge which has been a place of celebration and worship at the time of the Summer Solstice for thousands of years! How magical!

 

It’s time to celebrate the light within us all. We are light beings on this planet spinning around this great big sun. Light is the source of our growth and life. Since most of us might not be traveling to an ancient sight to celebrate, there are beautiful ways you can honor the Summer solstice with your own rituals.

 

Here are some rituals to honor this beautiful day.

Set your soul on FIRE

 

The element of fire has been used to help honor the Summer Solstice for years. Get outside, make a bonfire and watch the stars. To add more magic to you fire you can throw in dried flowers, lavender incense, and summer herbs like rosemary and mint. A bonfire on the beach would be even more scared to also help usher in the energy of this next season of the water sign of Cancer.

 

This is also a perfect time to ignite your soul and ask yourself the burning questions; What do you desire? Fire is a beautiful element that is constantly moving to remind us that everything flows, and nothing is permanent.

Ask yourself:

What have you moved through?

What have you created?

What have you let go of?

What have you survived?

 

Look at it and own it.

This is your story of life!


 

Bloom like the FLOWERS.

 

Spring was the time to plant seeds, physically and mentally. As we slip into summer, things start to bloom. It’s the perfect time to work and be around more flowers! Buy them for your home, friends, and family all summer long. Especially in bright colors like yellow and orange in honor of the sun. You can also add flower essence into your life. I wake up every morning and mist my face with rose water. Hello Queen! Let the love and beauty fill your life. Every flower has a deep meaning and special energy you can tap into. Check out one of my favorite fairy sisters; Tess Whitehurst and her post about The Magic of Flowers.

 

For all you goddess out there, this is the perfect time to gather flowers and make a flower crown. Two summers ago I spent my weekends making flower crowns in Malibu, and the amount of joy I got from working with flowers and watching goddess dance around in them, filled my heart. This is a great week to get creative as the energy is ripe! Start a DIY project and let it flow. Check out how to make a beautiful flower mandala from Lotus Wei.

As the Summer Solstice kisses the crab, we start Cancer season. This season victory and success are here! We left behind all our fears in May and went through growing pains in June to now be open to the gifts July has in store.

Time to get chatty and socialize as we have a New Moon in Gemini on Wednesday, June 13th. New Moons are the start of a new cycle in our lives and what better way to have it in Gemini the sign of the playful twins, to communicate what we want and need. Take note and watch your thoughts and words, as genius ideas may pop out of nowhere. We will be caring about what we say and how we express our opinions as Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury will be in Cancer making communication more emotional and sensitive. Our crabby side could come out, so be around people you love and speak from your heart! When Cancer is in Gemini it operates with emotional intelligence. Go deep into your core to communicate what’s inside, and let the weird playful Gemini energy heal you through it. Can we say hot tub party Wednesday night? No better way than to socialize in the warm-hearted waters of Cancer as we chat it up with our close friends about all our crazy ideas for the future.

 

Change your thinking, change your world.

 

“When we connect with others about our hearts desires, we can build new kingdoms together.” - Nicole O’ Bryne, I

 

Hours before the New Moon Gemini, Mercury does a scenic drive to Uranus making a positive sextile. Radically new ideas and conditions will be change our perspective of our whole world. If the inside changes, the outer world will shift to fit. We are beginning to intuitively sense the opportunities that this Uranus in Taurus cycle is unfolding for us. Time to communicate those thoughts about what makes you feel free! Do you feel money is stopping you? That's all about to change.

 What’s your message to the world? Dream big, no BIGGER!

 

Mercury also does a drive-by shooting making a square to Chiron our 'wounded healer.' It’s time to speak up and talk about our pain, trauma, and stress. Release that shit. We must get to the core issues that we have been processing and dealing with lately.

 

"We are all born with a wound, a part that we bring with us on our hero’s journey to find our medicine and our gifts to the world. When we speak about our pain, when we let it move through us, we can heal it, transform it and empower ourselves.”

- Nicole O’Byrne, Inner Doorways

 

With the Sun and Moon both in Gemini we are getting an extra dose of Twin magic. Allowing us to dive deep into the core of our soul to heal in playful ways.

 

Your motto is “Who knew that (soul) work could be so much fun?”. Try to find ways to make the best of it with with tapping into your inner child. 

 

Make lightheartedness of the stress and pain you have been going through. Laugh it off, because you are just in a video game called Earth.

 

Time to level up to the next round in your life.

 

Ready Player One?

Time to Strengthen Your Willpower and Spiritual Growth- [June 2018 Astrology Forecast]

June is the month to strengthen our willpower and spiritual growth. As we near the summer solstice at the end of the month, we will have high and low waves of emotions. This Gemini energy will create days where we will be tired, over it, feeling low energy and not motivated. Other days we will feel energized, inspired and on top of the world, but don’t worry even though we have low moments there is still positive possibilities ahead as the Gemini New Moon on the 13th brings great luck and success, especially in business. You will be able to see through the fog this month as Neptune will turn retrograde to clear away illusions and manifest your spiritual faith. There will be 5 planets in retrograde this month having summer start off at a slow pace, and we need it as we are still clearing away old energies, bad habits, and our past traumas. Yes, I know, we're still going through that. Ughhhhh

 

Willpower comes from discipline and discipline leads to confidence to create actions on the bigger issues and goals we have in our life. Understanding resistance will be a huge focus this month.  

 

Resistance and Fear

 

Are you paralyzed with fear? That’s a good sign.

Fear is good. Like Self-doubt, fear is an indicator. Fear tells us what we have to do.

Remember the rule of thumb: The more scared we are of a work or calling, the more sure we can be that we have to do it.

- Steven Pressfield

 

This month I highly recommend reading this short but life bible book by Steven Pressfield The War Of Art to help get through this month! Resistance never sleeps and we must fight this battle every day. WIllpower isn’t something you obtain, it’s a daily practice. Take baby steps EVERY DAY.

 

We have a Gemini New Moon on the 13th calling us to buddy up because we need someone to help support us through this time. Creating healthy habits and having willpower is always best done with a support team. You are being called to muster up strength and when you show discipline the Universe will reward you and open doors that will support your dreams! “Just Do It” is your mantra this month. This New Moon falls on the belt of Orion given us strength, energy, and confidence. It brings protection and good fortune, making this a positive day especially in business too!

 

Neptune will take a backspin and go into retrograde on June 18th for the next 160 days. Neptune spends 40% of the year in retrograde clearing away the fog of our illusion and false fantasy in our relationships, finances, and career. It is also a great time for our own spiritual development and quest for truth. Neptune RX isn’t as feared as the closer planets ie; Mercury RX, but if you are far from living your truth or purpose in your life, the harder the hit from its backspin. It’s a great time to get deep with yourself and pick up more books, go to yoga, meditate daily or seek counseling. Take care of yourself and add a spiritual practice into your days. Your psychic and intuitive feelings will take fight at this time. Spiritual growth will accompany the rich emotional experiences you’ll be having this month! The Astrology King says, “Neptune retrograde 2018 forms a fortunate aspect pattern called a grand trine. It shows great natural talent and creative potential. Mercury and Jupiter are the other planets involved so there is a hopeful, philosophical and friendly feel to Neptune retrograde this year.” This is another positive day this month!

 

Mars will join the retrograde team on June 26th passing through Aquarius and Capricorn hitting the slow-mo button. Mars fiery energy might blast us with ex’s reaching out and fights breaking lose. Your rebellious side might come out with the Aquarius energy and Capricorn will have your self-discipline be pushed at its highest. Keep clearing out, elimination, detoxing, releasing changing and sorting out your environment. Breath through these moments and know it will be over with time.

 

The Capricorn Full Moon on the 28th will have your ambitions on center stage. Time to check in with your half-yearly goals and resolutions that you made at the New Moon in Capricorn back in January. How far have you come? What goals do you have for the next six months? Where do you want to see yourself at the end of this year? Write it all down! Do yourself a favor and check in with yourself and be honest.

 

Remember to push yourself this month and “Just Do It” even when you don’t feel like it. Your discipline will be rewarded. Have faith and watch your life unfold this June. Haven’t we always wished for summer to slow down?

This New Moon in Taurus provides us a shelter of hopes and dreams. We feel safe and secure in our faith as long as you listen to your intuition. Hello higher self, are you there? With six planets lining up in earth signs, we have a strong foundation for planting seeds of our dreams with perseverance. Bulls love to work as long as passion leads the way!

 

Taurus rules, money, stability, hard work and determination. This moon will have us approaching our goals knowing good things are coming! It’s time to be honest with yourself and live your life with purpose. A feeling of patience and calmness will easy your soul this new moon.

 

Old wounds may have popped up to be healed as the moon is opposite Jupiter retrograde in Scorpio. Stop hiding in your shadows or projecting your issues. All you need is a little TLC to repair. Write it out, get creative, go for a walk in nature. With all this earth energy this is the time to connect with your sense and get grounded. Get out and enjoy nature with going on a hike, gardening or buy flowers. I highly recommend dancing barefoot in the grass or sand. Feel the earth because nature is a powerful healer!

 

Taurus also rules values. What are you most valuing in your life? What passions are you giving your time too? The New Moon trines beautiful to Pluto which creates positive transformation. Are you valuing the deep experiences that are taking place and transforming your life? Remember this a month to let you gifts shine!

 

A few hours after the new moon arrives we have the one and only Uranus that moves into Taurus, along with the Sun in Taurus. So much earthy bull energy around us. Uranus is unpredictable and Taurus disliked change. They may be a surprise or two that shift your values on how you view your finances and material things. It’s time to think different, connect to things differently and see things in a whole new way. Uranus will be in Taurus for the next seven years, get ready to watch the world change in so many ways!

AS WE FIND FREEDOM, WILL THE SELFIE OBSESSION DIE? [URANUS IN TAURUS MAY 2018]

 

“We want to be free NOW.

But at the same time, with the Taurus influence, we don’t want to feel rushed and we don’t want to lose what makes us feel safe and secure…

“Still, with all this muscle in the chart, it’s like the cosmos is saying, you’re stronger than you think you are…

“With Uranus about to fall into Taurus, what we currently accept as solid ground and absolute certainty is liable to change very quickly…”

As We Find Freedom, Will The Selfie Obsession Die? [Uranus In Taurus May 2018]

Will the ‘selfie’ era die? Will our obsession with ourselves shift? It’s all about to change so hold tight pretty little thing. What sparked this self-crazed obsession of ME ME ME?

 

In 2011, Uranus moved into Aries radically revamping the way we express ourselves. Uranus is the planet of the unexpected surprises and Aries being the first sign in the zodiac is the sign of The Self, YOU. Aries rules the face, so low and behold the ‘self’ was born. If you remember back across these last seven years, Youtube, Instagram, and Snapchat were born. A platform all about YOU as Uranian energy celebrates individuality and technology. This transit has connected us to each other in so many ways. We found freedom in expressing ourselves. We are able to see how people lived all over the world. We got excited to share our experiences because ‘experiences’ is rated high on the happiness scale and we are all on the search for happiness right?

 

But to every yin, there is a yang, and it may have caused more harm than good. Watching everyone’s curated “happy experiences” created depression and FOMO. Extreme social comparison grew making us unhappy with own lives that we were living. People started to live non-authentic lives covered in filters and apps that distorted our view of how we see ourselves and others. The revolution is coming and if you are someone who is realizing the effects of social media, check out my blog on How to Start Using Instagram In A Healthy Way.


 

On May 15th, this seven-year cycle ends as Uranus waves goodbye to the Aries warrior and jumps on the Taurus bull.

 

So what’s in store for the next seven years?

 

We will be changing the way we associate with freedom and money. As Taurus rules, money, finances and banking and Uranus rules freedom. The question we ask ourselves is how are we going to break free from our financial woes that have weighed us down? Some astrologers are saying bitcoin is going to help revolutionize this shift and help us feel free from our outdated system of money. We are all in debt, we are all chained to working long days, we are all slaves to money. It’s time to change the fucking system because it’s clearly not working. Aren’t we all fed up with prices rising, housing at unaffordable prices, and ever-increasing?

 

Since this is a cycle, let’s look at what happened in history when Uranus was in Taurus about 80 years ago. Oh, the Great Depression, which was between 1929-1939 which started with the Wall Street crash in ‘29. During this time, rationing replaced normal currency. The Great Depression brought us the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. regulation of securities markets, the birth of the Social Security System and the first national minimum wage changed.

 

It is clear we will seeing banking take a turn has chaos might prevail. Is it a coincidence that there is a huge bull statue on Wall Street in New York? I think not. Uranus also rules feminism which we saw a lot of women coming forth during its transit in Aries with the Women’s March. It may be no shock that women will be the leaders of this financial turnover as it comes into Taurus. Will we see the overthrow of these powerful male banks?

 

“The World Will Be Saved By The Western Women.”- Dalai Lama

 

Uranus loves surprises and Taurus loves to make sure the ground is stable so there could be some crazy times ahead for all of us globally. Hold tight this is about to be a huge time for us these next seven years. With Taurus also being a fixed sign, meaning that these actions will be our foundation for the way we live these next few years out.

 

Stand up.

 

Find your freedom.

 

And flow through the chaos.
