Analysis
What a glorious and beautiful New Moon! This New Moon is going to be a total love fest. Granted there’s a tricky angle to Uranus, which is sure to shake things up, but I still believe this will be one of the more light-hearted New Moons of the year! 
This is THE time to plant seeds for something inspiring. This is considered a black moon, one of TWO new moons in July, and the darkest time of the month during a very SOLAR (Leo) month!  Jupiter will be smiling at the time of this Moon, trining the Sun, and building over the following days. Venus conjunct the Sun and Moon in Leo at the time of the New Moon is symbolic of the divine connection to our heart space. The Sun (Ego) and the Moon (emotions) fuse with Venus directing us HOW to be loving leaders and co-creators. 
You can’t speak about Leo without bringing up the ego. Leo represents the “I AM” within the zodiac wheel. This is the heart, the chest, the spine. The Solar plexus. The solar energy that fills our bodies with passion and childlike creativity. It’s the lion’s jungle swag. Ah, but ego. It’s a tricky thing because we do need one, just a healthy one.  The planets trine Chiron the wounded healer in Aries should help us accomplish this. Keep it in check around the time of the moon. 
This Moon encourages us to reflect on the ego, and with Uranus’s square, you’re apt to experience some unexpected energy to test it. But that’s the beauty of being a leader, sometimes we have to make choices that are not always about us, sometimes it’s about what’s best all around. (This can be challenging with all the planets moving through Leo, some of you will have challenges escaping the drama). Leo Also rules true love, and many signs are apt to be struck by cupids arrow in August. Be sure to check my August horoscopes coming in a few days to see if it’s you. 
Soon Mercury will end his retrograde, and head back into Leo in the following month. This means contracts get the green light again shortly, communications become more clear, digital issues should cease and so on. Hooray! Catch a play or theatrical performance with some friends. Maybe start the beginning phases of a new personal project. Enjoy quality time with your children. Get creative!

Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, July 4th & 5th, 2020: Overcoming Obstacles

July 02, 2020 0 Comments

This is a big one kids, hold onto your shorts! July and August are gearing up to be some of the more intense months of the year. This is a build-up of energy that’s been taking place for the better part of the last two and a half years. This is the final Capricorn eclipse for years to come, and she will close with a bang. Full Moon Lunar eclipses are often riddled with physical events that come to a close. Unlike Solar eclipses, which are more on the emotional side, these types of lunation bring about massive changes in the physical World. In the sign of Capricorn, it will have an authoritarian vibe to it. Some of you in the weeks ahead will see a boiling point with your relationships to superiors. For every one of you, Capricorn takes place within the twelve houses of your natal astrology chart. This is where knowing your astrological placements is essential. Even if you’re not a Capricorn or have any personal placements in that sign, this event WILL affect you. Why, you ask? Because for the better part of the last two and a half years, Saturn, the taskmaster, has been occupying that area of your chart. Saturn is along the lines of the strict authority figure in your life who wants you to

Get your sparklers ready; things are reaching some impressive heights this month. There will be moments where you can feel the energy swell to overwhelming proportions. I think everyone can benefit from keeping this in mind, focus on yourself and YOUR actions, not others. You want to be an actor, not a reactor. I liken this to not giving a toddler throwing a tantrum your attention. Anger and frustration is a funny thing. Some people handle it better than others. Some meditate. Others let it simmer until they explode. We want to watch out for any hidden intense emotions this month. The full moon lunar eclipse in Capricorn is a doozy, coming in on July 4th and 5th. I expect this to be a turning point, where the world becomes acutely aware of Saturn's tight grip. Being so close to Americas's birthday, and conjunct the USA's natal Sun, important things will be coming in the weeks ahead...

Spotlight on: Crystal Quartz!
Spotlight on: Crystal Quartz!

June 25, 2020 0 Comments

Quartz is “The Master Healer” and amplifies the energy of anything that is programmed to it, and because of its ability to be negative and positively charged, it is able to channel and store energy for use at a later time. For this exact reason, it is also ideal to use during spiritual or meditation work. It can be used to balance, cleanse, charge, and carry the intentions of anyone, or of other crystals, so it can be used for any ritual with any intention, and even as a substitute should you not have other rocks, minerals, or other talismans around...
