  • What does it mean?
  • Neptune is the planet of our dreams, day dreams and fantasy.
  • She can be psychic, compassionate and forgiving.
  • She can also be gullible and expect more than reality can provide.
  • The ruler of Pisces.
  • Neptune is romantic, nostalgic and magical.
  • Neptune also has a bearing on our immune systems, watch out for virus’s and toxins infiltrating our body and our eco-systems.

Neptune Retrograde: 

  • We can reach within ourselves now, making this a good time for internal healing. However, those with strong Pisces/Neptune traits, should take care not to allow themselves to get too carried away into the world of dreams 🙂 … 
  • Healers, nurses, counselors and those who work for the common good may feel more connected or at peace with the work they do. 
  • Getting things ticked off of the “bucket list” should go easier under this influence.. 🙂 
  • For some, the harshness of reality may be a challenge to deal with on a everyday basis. Being aware of the method of “escapism” used, is recommended for those who have negative reactions to alcohol, certain foods or prescription drugs. Staying connected with a grounded type personality may help.
  • Taking care of our health and being aware of the beauty/work of mother nature is recommended. 
  • This Astrological “event” will have a slight effect on all of us, but will have a stronger effect on those who have any of the following in their birth charts:
  • Sun in Pisces:
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Neptune in Pisces:
  • Ascendant in Pisces:
  • Mid-heaven in Pisces: 
  • Aspects to Pisces: 

Neptune Turns Direct On November 28 2020:

We should be able to make better sense out of our dream and fantasy world now… We can see what’s real and what isn’t… This will help us to make concrete goals, it will also let us know what we should be putting our time and energy into and what we must either let go of … or put away until the time is right… Those with a strong Pisces or Neptune influence in their charts may feel a sense of a relief as this dreamy planet gets back on track again..

June 20 2020 The Sun moves into Cancer.

Cancer the Crab: Water: Feminine: Cardinal:

Cancer folk are always trying to take care of everyone. ☺Nurturing is in their nature, in fact it’s so inherent in these guys and gals that if they don’t have a family close by they will create one from the folks they spend time with. 

Emotional Cancer folk usually operate on ‘gut feelings’ and while they enjoy the company of others around them, spending some time alone in private can do wonders for the energy levels. Like the phases of the moon that rule Cancer, there are times to be out in front and there are times to take a back seat to rejuvenate. 

The thing to watch for with being a Cancerian is not to get caught up in the “needy market”… Depending on others to make one feel “better” is not the best way to explore the finer, points of one’s nature. We all love to have someone around us who wants to take care of us, but most of us don’t want to be “mothered” all of the time. 🙂

Most “crabs” or those with a “crab” influence are great in the kitchen, as feeding others is another way to say “I love you”. For these folk whipping something up for supper is hardly ever a problem (unless mum is feeling a little “crabby”). 

Cancer rules the breasts and stomach. Issue’s with the tummy are likely when under stress, during a full moon or when ignoring healthy eating habits. 

Sensitive by nature Cancer folk, may at times, imagine slights from others and become defensive or withdrawn (as a crab into its shell) in an effort to block any hurt. This is something that should be watched for especially during emotionally vulnerable times (menstruation/ovulation/work or family stress/full moon), actions taken or words spoken during this time may cause more upset than intended or needed. 

Warm Birthday Wishes :

Ian, Christine, Janine, Rose (cusp) And warm birthday wishes are sent to everyone celebrating a Cancerian birthday. 

 

 

 


Summer Solstice: June 20 2020

The 1st day of summer for 2020 and will be the longest day of the year and the shortest night for our hemisphere. A positive time where being outside is the norm along with spending time with loved ones and friends. Summer is a celebration of all things light and who couldn’t use some light after the dark days of winter… 🙂 

As we welcome summer 2020 we give thanks to Mother Earth. 

&

After the strange and challenging time we have had so far this year, let us hope for a better future, of fun, laughter, love and prosperity… 


New Moon in Cancer June 20 2020:

 

Traditionally the new moon is a good time to begin new projects, relationships, school etc… However, we have a number of planets in retrograde motion at present, making this an erratic time to begin anything…

Date: June 20 @ 11:02 pm (PT) June 20 @ 2:02 am (ET)

Moon Phase: In the 4th 

Moon void of course: June 23 @ 3:20 (ET) @ 12:20 am (PT) to Moon into Leo on the 23rd. 

Opportunity Time: June 22 @ 11:30 pm (ET) @ 8:30 pm (PT) to void of course: Good for practical matters… keep in mind all the retrograde planets that are happening now. 

June Retrograde Planets: 

  • Mercury: Planet of communication, transportation, technology… Begins June 18th
  • Venus: Planet of money, relationships and beauty: Ends June 26th
  • Jupiter:   Planet of expansion, luck and exaggeration: All Month
  • Saturn:   Planet of restrictions, authority and traditions: All Month
  • Neptune: Planet of imagination, the unknown, psychic ability, lies and deception… Begins June 23rd
  • Pluto: Planet of death/regeneration, sex, shared money, Insurance All Month 

  • The Moon rules Cancer, so it is comfortable in this sign…
  • Cancer moon is sensitive, caring and nurturing… she can also be moody and perceived as being needy. Take care not to over react during this new moon, if you are upset about something, make sure you have the facts before believing someone really meant to cause your harm or hurt your feelings…
  • Get out your cooking pots, the BBQ or your baking trays, cooking and baking are soothing activities for Cancer folk, especially if they can do so for loved ones… Gardening can also be fun and relaxing for those with a bit of earth in their charts…
  • As we approach this New Moon, take care to have a positive outlook, think about what you would like to bring into your life to enhance it… make notes of any projects you would like to begin, draw up plans if you are so inclined 🙂
  • The last few months have been challenging for everyone, we are all beginning to become a bit restless with this way of life (COVID-19)… It is time to come out of our homes again, yet we need to take care still… Frustrations are bound to occur, making this New Moon time an extra special time to be thinking on the positive end of things… 🙂
  • All moon in Cancer Traits will be stronger during the full moon, the full moon will affect everyone, however, those with Cancer chart influences and/or Capricorn chart influences will feel the affects more. As will those who have the following in their charts: 
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Sun in Cancer
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Any aspects to the ascendant or midheaven

Notes ***

 June 21 is Father’s Day… Happy Dad day 🙂


June 21: Solar Eclipse:

We can be more erratic and emotional during eclipses, it is best to wait out an eclipse before beginning anything or signing anything important papers… if you have to sign anything or commit to anything during this time, take care to check out all the angles. 🙂 If your birthday falls on an eclipse or on the day before or after an eclipse, the year ahead could be an important turning point in your life… stay positive and a positive year ahead is possible.

Mercury Retrograde: Enters Storm on June 9: Retrograde June 17/18 to July 12 2020: Remains in “storm” until July 19

Mercury Retrograde

Sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂 

When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to and do as many things possible with the two letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdecorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, if you don’t ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be REdone at a later date
  • Mercury is in the sign of Cancer ♋during this retrograde motion… Life area’s involving domestic issues and family may not go as planned… leave sensitive topics until after July 19th if possible. 

When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.

  • Mercury entered its “storm” on June 9th {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on June 17 @ 9:59 pm (PT) June 18 @ 12:59 am (ET):
  • Mercury turns direct on July 12 @ 4:26 am (ET) @ 1:26 am (PT)
  • Mercury is clear of its storm July 19th: {look over any notes that you made earlier, and see what makes sense now}

The Moon and Astrology

HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAILY LIVES…

In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-of-Course: 

There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void of Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon:

These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Taurus June 2020

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  June 16 @ 5:35am (ET) @ 3:35am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: June 18 @ 8:02am (ET) @ 5:02am (PT) to Moon in Gemini later that night : Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: June 17 @11:04am (ET) @ 8:04am (PT): This time is best used for practical matters.

**NOTES**: Mercury is in storm and goes retrograde on the 17th (PT) on the 18th (ET) 

What does this mean? 

  • Taurus needs emotional and material security, so we may find we are more interested in our financial affairs. 
  • This may prove to be a good time to make investments for the future or to begin plans for the next financially responsible phase. 
  • Taurus has lots of patience, indicating this could be a good time to deal with people/projects/situations that take up more time than is liked. 
  • This could be a tricky position for some of us… please keep in mind that our partners (personal and business) are not our possessions… we must remind ourselves to give them their “personal space” just as they allow us ours… 🙂
  • For some of us, this influence may guide or push us to make some serious, long-lasting changes where our residential situations are concerned… Where we live and who we allow to share that very personal space with us is important… 
  • Take care when making choices regarding, residential moves and financial investments… our emotions are tied up in our investments… and for some that may mean that their happiness is also tied up in the financial side of things… 
  • While the moon in Taurus will affect all of us, those with the following may feel the effects a little more.Those who have strong Scorpio in their charts to a lessor effect.
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Libra
    • Moon in Libra
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
    • Moon in the 7th house

“The Past can never be erased, therefor we must focus on the present and the future, doing good, being kind to all, no matter the race, creed, sex or belief system”
