The Moon comes home to plant a new seed in her sign of Cancer once a year. She comes back into her darkness, into the depths of her inner being to retreat, to re-calibrate, to process, to be, and to feel. ⁠ ⁠

And in the darkness of her inner world she plants a seed. Nurtures it, loves it, protects it, connects to it by feeling, and serves it what it needs. ⁠ ⁠

The moon, the feminine within, flows like water, through oceans, rivers, streams… ever transforming from liquid to steam to snow, to ice, to rain and mist, then back again to be the tranquil sea. ⁠In all her manifestations she is constantly in motion, guided by her emotion and endless streams of memories that connect to the mystical ocean of spirit. ⁠ ⁠

Going where she needs to be, she offers the drink of her magic waters to all who need, then evaporates into a mist. ⁠She is mystery embodied. The Goddess of the Night. ⁠ ⁠

And when at home inside here crablike shell, she feels safe, secure, protected… from the excess of life, from the linear energy of sunlight. ⁠ ⁠

Her Kingdom is dark and quiet, it lulls, it feels, it steals you into timeless dreams. ⁠She relies on sound, not vision, and the power of her intuition takes her to into places that the piercing light of day can’t reach. ⁠ ⁠

What she knows is experience, embodiment, emotion, the rhythm of life and all its unspoken mystery. ⁠ ⁠

What will you create in the new moon waters of the divine feminine? What seeds will you plant in the dark, and then continue water? ⁠ ⁠

Neptune is in friendly angle to the New Moon we can all have access to deeper into the magic and mystery of the timeless imaginings that come alive when we are lulling ourselves to sleep. Into divine inspiration and unconditional love, into beauty, compassion and creativity. ⁠The only limit is our belief.  ⁠


Of what are you willing to let go? Pluto stands across the sky asking you to transform some aspect of your world, so that your seeds may grow.


With Venus and Mars in Leo we are drawn to play, and dance, and celebrate as we shine our light. It is in the balance of the balancing act of our masculine and feminine that we manifest creations that are whole, and prosperous. You see, Cancer births Leo, it is from the inner world of the womb of mother that the shining creation is born. And with Chiron (the wounded healer) aspecting the masculine and femme in Leo, we have a beautiful opportunity to heal our physical body, our relationships, our money, and connect to spiritual essence of our values.


Mars and Venus will be dancing for a month, flirting as they move in rhythm across the sky, which means more romance for us on the mortal earth, more fun, more laughter. And they are so very ready to savour and appreciate this time because they both just came out of a T-square with Uranus and Saturn in which they experienced and reflected on the cycles of tug and war between control and freedom, restriction and spontaneity, individual expression and tradition, rules and desire to follow their hearts.


Trust, trust that the experiences you’ve had, the struggle, the closing doors, the rejection and the pain that came over eclipse season and during these Uranus and Saturn clashes have helped you learn something beautiful and inspiring about yourself and your journey, have helped you grow.


Trust, that as you birth your new creations you will birth a new tribe, a family of kindred souls that will love, appreciate and support your expressions. You see, with Saturn and Jupiter in Uranus, we are bound to reimagine community,  and under this Cancer New Moon we can feel into the sense of a new family that expands beyond its traditional structure.


May your creations be as rich as the imaginings of your inner world, and as lively as the light of the sun. ⁠


May you embrace the mystery and power of your feminine while holding it in sacred union with your masculine.
