The new moon in Cancer (11° 32') is exact Wednesday, July 2 at 7:18 PM PDT.
Aries: Just say “No!” To what? Only you know the answer. Something is seriously stuck and the more of that beautiful love and enthusiasm you keep pouring into it, the more backed up things seems to get... Sucks. You’re overindulging someone or something and it just isn’t going anywhere. It’s getting funky. Don’t ignore what you can tell is true. You need some fresh flow into the system. Space. New actions. Creative re-direction. The new moon is drawing you home in more ways than one... Drink lots of water.
Taurus: Inspired much? You or someone close to you is trail blazing through life- alive and on fire. Feeling the summer heat, maybe? Run with it. Run with them. And write it down. Clarity is yours. All that energy combined with your Taurean strength and determination makes you nearly unstoppable. You’ve shed some old skins. And the new one feels good! Be sure you put yourself in places and situations where you’ve got plenty of room to shine, shout, and run, if necessary. If you feel challenged, that’s a good thing. It’s just a test and you’ll pass, colors flying.
Gemini: Time to count your pennies Gemini. Big money starts with little money. A new opportunity is looking for you. Are you ready? Healthy? The new moon wants you to deal with your stuff. Get grounded in the material world, finances, home, work, body. You can and should keep talking about it, of course, but you have to start doing something about it too! Make a move. The possibilities for a new kind of richness in your life are great! A little attention to the ground and the lightness and heights you crave will arise.
Cancer: Everyone loves a Cancer in season. Suddenly all the ups and downs make so much sense! All that time alone is actually drawing people closer to you. (In a good way.) And those weighty burdens maybe starting to feel and look a little like heaven on earth. It’s been hard work in your own watery way, but the results are showing beautifully. Don’t get too critical about it. It’s already a great improvement. And don’t go away just yet. You’re in a generous place and those around you need your special brand of love.
Leo: Sadness goes around. Tears and loss are normal and healthy. It’s the getting stuck and ignoring our feelings that starts to wreck havoc. It’s your turn this time, Leo, to shed a few heartfelt tears over something that was lost or didn’t work out quite the way you had hoped. Damn it! It maybe obvious or possibly hidden in those deeper, darker, less conscious places. When was the last time you gave those shadows of yours a look? Everyone who reads these horoscopes is automatically granted permission to cry whenever, wherever, and about whatever they need to- but you especially, great Leo. Your reluctance is not surprising. However, nothing will fall apart if you let go the royal duties for a moment and tend to your sadness with a few licks and tears. Also, nothing requires you to do it alone.
Virgo: Be sure to turn that tension into creative discipline and you’ll be fine. Better than fine. But it will take some alchemical effort on your part to turn things around. You’ve got a lot of energy at the moment, but if it lacks healthy expression, fights may ensue. Take that frustration and make it constructive. It’s possible that things are so challenging and volatile at the moment that you feel blinded by anger. That’s an opportunity to get in touch with what you really want, need, desire. That kind of clarity is a gift. Take it. Keeping your noblest end goals in sight are the best way not to lose perspective. Fortunately you have a whole network of like minded humnitarians to remind you what those are if you momentarily forget. Children especially.
Libra: Ah! Perspective at last... The big big picture has come into greater focus. Heaven and Earth. The Material and Immaterial. The Self and Other. Those irreconcilable differences are starting to find their just right places and the harmony you always work so hard for is able to emerge with even greater fullness. This is what you have been waiting for. It’s all about keeping that widest possible scope without losing any of the details you love. Study a river or lay back under a clear night sky to remind you, if you start to forget. But I don’t think you will. It rings too true and feels too good.
Scorpio: To everything turn, turn. How are you keeping up with the changes? Luck is everywhere, but it’s up to you whether to invite the good kind or the other kind. Listen to your head, your heart, and your body. When they all agree, that’s the opening you’re looking for. You’ll need to relax in order to trust. And try not to run over those closest to you. It shouldn’t be hard. Those folks are around you for a reason. They’re a part of your good fortune. Include them. Welcome the lightening of possible storms. Also women. They’ll provide good guidance. Ease. Patience. Intuition. And good luck.
Sagittarius: Anxiety just isn’t your color, honey. You need to change the way you’ve been handling your business. Feeling stuck, silent, and insecure is very unlike you. It’s possible that you’re making do with less and this worries you. Or you’re more reliant upon others when you prefer the certainty of self-reliance. You need to communicate clearer terms with your partners, employers, and financial backers. Make a list of the things you really need, as opposed to the things you really want and you may find the situation is not so serious. We love that you love to indulge the good life, but let’s keep it sustainable. It’s not really worthwhile if it you’re too stressed to fully enjoy it. What about indulging a little restraint, a little rest? You know- “Less is more.” Is that really true? Try to keep your wheels from spinning unnecessarily. What you want most actually doesn’t cost anything...
Capricorn: Well, aren’t you the creative one! The universe is on your side and even better– you are on your side. You’re finding ways to work well with others. Your balancing assertiveness with responsiveness and the results are awesome! Keep putting yourself out there. But also keep checking in with your motivations and best intentions. Make sure you’re putting out your best and not just the easiest. Now is not the time to kick back or lose focus. The point is to not get carried away and lose this magical chemistry. Now more than ever, that Capricorn discipline needs to keep pace with your ambition, so that all the work you’re putting in now will continue to pay off for years to come. When in doubt, wear green.
Aquarius: Party over here! Time to celebrate. You need to get all those wonderful people in your life together, not only to thank them and show your appreciation, but more importantly, so that they can thank you and show their appreciation, sending you off with joy toward the next big thing. Whatever conflicts stood in the way, no longer need to be obstacles. Either you’re over the conflict or have figured out a way to live with it. Regardless, you’ve arrived, you’re moving on. Both at the same time. Only you could manage both in the same move. Dress up. The world needs to see on the outside how cute you’re feeling on the inside.
Pisces: Hate to say it, but you’re maybe overindulging that really good thing. So much so, it’s not that enjoyable anymore. You need to know when to say when. It’s become a distraction and you could lose sight of the bigger picture. It feels good and you of all people deserve the good feelings, but... we need you healthy for what is yet to come! Moderation, please. Maybe a new really good thing just to mix it up. In order for that to happen though, you need to let the other indulgence go. Try letting everything go for a moment and see what that brings. Maybe now’s a good time to take care of the house...
