Cancer/Cancer Rising* (Jun 21-July 21): You wake up Friday, July 1 to a New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse. Did you know that ancient royals would manipulate the common folk and say that a dragon would swallow the Sun? Sound familiar? Can you say Debt Ceiling alert? Are we acting out a Henny Penny reality? Oh, back to my original point Chinese astrology year of the Dragon are 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000 and 2012. Dragons are a composite animal with wings, claws, serpentine qualities, etc. They have a falling to Earth like the ancients angels of yore who looked upon the Earthly women with lust. The planet of love, joy, beauty and harmony (Venus) hovers at a point of giving back, disseminating your special and spiritually directed gifts (the ancients would say the Dragons tail). Huh? To help someone in need is still an excellent way to pay your karmic debts forward, no need to fall to Earth. You can have more of an accepting attitude like youd rather be here than somewhere else (and you can make that in your relationships reality instead being all abstract. Better yet, old lovers reappear over the next several weeks, simply know what you have to gain (or lose). However, could all the voices from your past inform your furiously that you are unworthy of all Venus has to offer you? No worries, Henny. No frustrations. So, you hurt too easily; it is better than not feeling at all. Realize this New Moon wants to set off a transcendence of what you imagine holding you back. Engorge yourself of all your cards, race, gender, sexuality, class, religious. Play your card(s) from an evolving, powerful and self-assured dragon nature.
Leo/Leo Rising* (July 22-Aug 22): As the story goes, the Japanese Sun Goddess Amaterasu went into a depression, pre-pharmaceuticals. Im of the mind that you are Leo, Sun ruled, because in prior lives you were too mental and melancholy. Sun Goddess went into a cave (not good, no light, hence, no life, no crops). Uzume, the goddess of mirth, officially became the first flasher! Her playful display of her privates brought Amaterasu into such a raucous laughter that she left the cave. That interplay between your passive (acted on feminine) and your active (what you think of me is unimportant, I know my motives) brings illumination to all facets of your life, love and world! You desire during this New Moon before your birthday to have a place for your most sublime feelings. After all, youre the sign of romantic love. Often, this love is adolescent in its application, this Solar Eclipse could have you behaving in a more pragmatic manner, even in the area of fantasy. It is okay to be needing some downtime, but when your partner begins to walk around with little to no clothing, attend to someone elses needs can be an excellent way to shine.
Virgo/Virgo Rising* (Aug 22-Sept 22): Your mind and communicative abilities will be off the chain from July 2 through September 8. Not one to underutilize your left brain, yet, if you overdo it, we will run away in droves. There is something about being too fact driven, picky and outwardly correcting of our small inaccuracies. Simply remember to align your powerful and flexible thoughts to encouraging others innate empathy. Can you sometimes begin a sentence with I dont dislike this or that, enough to make a difference as to ? This works excellently when pizza is being ordered communally. For example, I dont dislike black olives enough to not eat said pizza. When zealous, compassion reminds you how to treadmill a while in anothers running shoes. Perform from a big picture outlook and we will follow you, big guy or mama (big, as in heart, hello?). There is rarely such a stark astrological time to where the adage, to those where more is given, more is expected has been truer. You have been gifted with a 9½ week mandate to create higher music to mediate, express and integrate what at first seems to be polar opposites (or friends who are on the outs). Instead of seeing flip sides of the same coin, youll see the worth of the whole coin. If you cannot bring harmony, after disharmony, ask yourself did you really want peace?
