2nd Full (Blue) Moon in Sagittarius / Summer Solstice – June ’16
Neptune (dreams) is squaring Saturn (reality) exactly today. Neptune dissolves old outdated structures, which can create a variety of effects (disillusionment, disappointment, loss). These effects are felt by the ego, which loves what’s familiar. Your Higher Self delights in your evolution and expansion, so tap into that energy for alignment if you’re feeling off balance.
A higher expression of this energy is taking practical actions to move toward your dreams. Never give up on yourself or your dreams. If it’s your dream, there is always something there for you.
Monday is a big day! At 7:02am EDT we have the 2nd Full (Blue) Moon in Sagittarius, which is the completion or culmination of something that began on the 1st Full Moon in Sagittarius (May 21). Or something comes to Light. What is that for you?
Mercury is now in a Mutable Grand Square with Neptune, Saturn and Jupiter, which can activate discouragement, depression, or feeling let down. Mercury rules thoughts and communications. Please be mindful of your thoughts and words, as they have great power.
Before you speak (or write) feel the effects of what you’re saying. So much harm is done impulsively and thoughtlessly using words as weapons. Use your words and thoughts to heal, to help, to uplift and to share love and compassion. This will make the world better.
Mercury is featured going forward and the opportunity is to ground and clarify your thinking. Holding a rigid point of view where you can only see one way is counterproductive. Appreciate other viewpoints and choose your thoughts/beliefs deliberately rather than just following your programming. And focus on connecting rather than being right – it will serve you well.
If you are triggered, check your thoughts to see if what you perceive is really true or if you’re delusional (Neptune). Believe me, it happens to the best of us, so a reality check is always good if you’re charged up…
At 6:34pm EDT, the Sun moves into gentle Cancer and we celebrate the Summer Solstice – equal parts day and night, balance, and the beginning of Summer.
Cancer rules emotional needs and how you get them met, your home (your nest), feelings of tenderness and vulnerability, emotional safety and security, family, food, tradition, emotional connection, nurturing and being nurtured.
Are your emotional needs being met or is there an imbalance (more giving than receiving, lack of connection)? It’s your job to find ways to take care of yourself – and then do them, faithfully. You are precious and this is your life! Your care matters.
Mars is still Retrograde until June 29, so hold off on launching new projects if possible. Use this time to course correct what’s no longer working for you and realigning with where you want to be going in your life.
Be good to yourself and others this week. We need all the love and care we can get.
****We still have MAJOR Moon Void of Course periods this week***, which can derail intended outcomes and productivity – and are optimal times to access your creativity, spiritual pursuits, routines or leisure activities. Be aware and pay attention.
