As I didn’t have an opportunity to post last week, I will recap the two important transitions from the previous week, before going into the coming transitions this week to bring us up to date. There is a lot of soft, loving energy in the air at the moment, which should make for a Magickal few weeks
Sun enters Cancer 21st June 2022 5:14am (ET) 21st June 2022 10:14am (BST)
The Sun has moved into Cancer, where he will stay until 22nd July, before moving into firey Leo
When the Sun is in Cancer we may feel a little protective of ourselves and our loved ones. We will focus on our “nests” - our homes our family and all that we need to make us feel safe and secure
Nurturing, caring and deep emotions are all in Cancers wheelhouse. We want to spend time with our loved ones; pampering them connecting with them and strengthening our bonds.
Beautifying our environment is a priority, as is making sure we are loved and, in turn, showing how much we care for those who are special to us
There is a very soft, affectionate energy about Cancer, but we need to check ourselves for dependence and ensure our need for closeness and connection does not turn into smothering, controlling or self-depreciating behaviour.
Venus enters Gemini 22nd June 2022 8:34pm (ET) 23rd June 2022 1:34am (BST)
Venus will remain in Gemini until 17th July, when she will move into Cancer
You may be inclined to think, with Venus being the planet of the heart and Gemini the planet of the mind , this position may clash - but fear not, when Venus enters Gemini, the energies combine to form meaningful connections between the heart and mind!
This is the perfect time to open up to someone you care about and to make deep and loving connections that will stand the test of time.
If you are single and you like someone, act now. Venus in Gemini - aided by Mercury in Gemini - puts the power of loving communication front and centre, and the upcoming New Moon in Cancer, signifies new beginnings in all things gloriously Cancerian!
If you are in a relationship, now is the perfect time to reconnect with your partner and take your relationship to a deeper level.
Neptune Retrograde in Pisces 28th June 2022 3:54am (ET) 28th June 2022 8:54am (BST)
This week sees Neptune begin it’s annual retrograde and, like the last 11 years and the next 3 to come, will retrograde in its home sign of Pisces
The mystical, dreamy sign of Pisces is Neptune’s domicile, which means it’s where the planet feels most at home and capable of enacting its energy.
Neptune is a generational planet, so her energy is felt collectively, rather than personally. We don’t feel the effects as strongly as we would if Mercury or Venus were retrograding. That said, it doesn’t mean it isn’t an important transit.
Neptune retrograde in Pisces may make us feel inclined to enhance our compassion and desire for peace , not just for ourselves, but for everyone.
Now is an excellent time to embark on some self reflection and some soul searching. Neptune is all about mystery and illusion - things that are felt rather than seen.
Our spirituality is very important to this planet, so it would be wise to use this time to reunite yourself with your inner beliefs, your core and your spirituality If you have found yourself lost or wavering in your faith, Neptune is giving you your annual opportunity to reconnect.
New Moon in Cancer 28th June 2022 10:52pm (ET) 29th June 2022 3:52am (BST)
CANCER - Water / Cardinal
RULING PLANET - Moon
4th HOUSE - Home, Family, Emotional Foundations, Femininity
COLOURS - Green, Blue, Purple, White
CRYSTALS - Moonstone, Amethyst, Emerald
Message: Love is in the Air…
This New Moon packs a powerful punch, not only is it the first New Moon of the Summer but the Moon is right at home here in Cancer, the sign she rules!
The New Moon is a time for rejuvenation and manifestation, this is an excellent time to commit to personal goals that express the positive energies of Cancer - home, family, security, our deepest most intimate feelings
Consider starting a project aimed at improving your family life or a major long-term venture.
Cancer loves love! Loving your family, your friends but also yourself. Carve out some time for yourself this New Moon as well as for others.
And in true Cancer form, I would like to end this post by saying Happy Anniversary to the Love of my Life @praecog29
These words are my own. Have a lovely week
Love & Light to all
