There are countless ways to love the earth, to love our fellow creatures, and to love ourselves. I saw this sign outside one of our local grocery stores and I teared up. That someone took the time to protect a shy snake filled my heart to overflowing and reminded me that in this world of chaos and confusion, where fear, grief, and sadness can dominate your awareness, there is always an act of kindness, however small, that ignites LOVE. Every time you ignite LOVE in your reality you raise the vibration for all of us.

You CAN make a difference and you DO make a difference each and every time you choose LOVE.
The Moon turns full near dawn on Thursday so Wednesday night will be wildly bright. Venus is superheated in Leo, just a few degrees away from the Sun -the perfect opportunity for you to radiate Leo LOVE into your reality. The Moon in Aquarius opposite the Sun and Venus in Leo points to the universality of LOVE, the community of LOVE and the abundance of LOVE available to all.
The Full Moon axis of Leo-Aquarius highlights the spectrum of
self-LOVE to LOVE for all. And we know that if you don’t have enough love for yourself, if your LOVE cup is not overflowing. you really don’t have enough to spread around to others. The focus to the internal before you flow to the external is the spiritual work of our time.
How’s that going for you?
Airbnb, Uber, ETSY, Thrift shops, and Craig’s List
are perfect examples of how we reach out to our community as individuals to do business, exchange things for other things, bypass corporate players and engage in exchanging love and kindness with one another as we build global communities of trust with one another. Strangers become friends. Likenesses are shared, differences appreciated. This is the Aquarian way.
As the Full Moon in Aquarius reflects the vibrant life force of Leo
ask yourself what act of kindness you can do to add your light of LOVE to our evolving world. You never know how your spark of LOVE will change the world for someone else.
Expansive, blessing-filled planet Jupiter is now moving DIRECT after many months moving retrograde. Mid-way through the mutable fire sign Sagittarius Jupiter will help to get things moving in an ever-expanding way in the areas of your life where Jupiter is transiting your chart. A relief all
around for those of us who have felt stuck and halted in forward momentum. Things are moving and shaking in consciousness now so…steer clear!
Uranus is now moving retrograde at 6 degrees Taurus, moving backwards through the end of the year. As Uranus retraces the early degrees of Taurus you may indeed experience liberation through chaos in the areas of your chart that Uranus triggers. Bring it on!

Which is all to say: Set your intentions for the New Moon with a focus on what creates stability, foundation, and a sense of security.
Cozy in to what feels yummy to you. Snuzzle in wherever Cancer falls in your chart. The effect of the eclipse will manifest in the fall.
Venus in Cancer loves the home, the lineage (especially through the mother and grandmother). and all gifts of the Divine Feminine. Intuition is heightened in Cancer, aligning with the rhythm of the moon, the tides, the flow, the moods, the in-breath and out – breath of all life. Venus in Cancer loves to be by the water, loves to immerse in water – the ocean, a lake, a creek, hot springs, a tub. Water buoys us, allows us float, to be held, to let go. More on Venus in Cancer and how to work with her energy as she transits the cardinal Water sign Cancer – Feed Your Venus: Looking for LOVE in all the Right Places.
Mars in Leo is hot and fiery – optimistic, hopeful, generous of heart, and dramatically self-expressive. Put energy into creative pursuits – things you like to do just because you like to do them. All artistic expressions supported and encouraged by Mars in LEO. Don’t hold back! Express yourself with the joy and enthusiasm of an 8 year-old. And tend to your mane, but of course!
Look to where Mercury will be moving in your birth chart to see what you will be revisiting to re-work in your own life. Mercury will be in Leo July 8 to July 18. Mercury will re-enter Cancer from July 19 through August 11. Then Mercury will re-enter Leo on August 12 and transit Leo until August 28.
Plenty of time to get pretty emotional and highly dramatic about communications and the ways you think about your life. Getting playful and being by water is most helpful for these energies.
For me these energies are playing out in my house – in the plumbing! And you know there’s no ignoring plumbing. Kitchen sink is leaking in some crazy way that the dishwasher is somehow involved (even though I never use it) so I have to replace the whole faucet situation. Same in the bathroom claw foot tub – a leak that requires the faucet to be replaced. What is the message here? Emotions leaking – new, upgraded equipment to handle the flow! All will be completed by Wednesday, just in time for Mercury retrograde, and let’s see how the flow goes after that, not diverted off, as it has been, to unnecessary distractions, that being either memories of the past or worry about the future. The flow is all about the NOW. Oh yeah, how come we all keep forgetting that simple truth?
Ah! The first baby finch breaks out of its egg! Every new birth reminds me of the New Moon and the endless possibility for birthing something new in your reality, breaking out of your shell.
A New Moon Solar Eclipse is a TRIGGER for shift and change where the eclipse falls in your chart.

Mercury has just entered the fixed FIRE sign LEO, adding a whole lot of DRAMA to the watery emotional realm of the Cancer Sun and Mars transiting Cancer.
Mercury stations retrograde on July 8 at 4 degrees Leo.
Mercury moves RETROGRADE July 8- August 1
Mercury stations retrograde at 4 degrees Leo, moves back and re-enters Cancer on July 19, retracing back to 23 degrees Cancer.
Mercury stations DIRECT on August 1 at
23 degrees Cancer, then moves forward, re-entering Leo on August 12. Mercury will then be in Leo until August 28. WOW! A whole hoopla of Mercurial Leo – let the play begin!
Mercury in LEO raises the drama ante in all communication. Recognize drama for what it is – your play in which you write the play, direct the play, and star in it – ah, yes! It’s called your life. How will you play it? Subtle and internalized or in-your-face, living it large and in charge…or somewhere in between? Leo is ruled by the Sun and is full of the hope of a new day, as the Sun rising every day promises life refreshed and open to untapped potential, the promise of what yet to play out. I’ll be sharing more about Mercury retrograde in my next newsletter. Keep tuned!
Emotions are HIGH right now and don’t be surprised if you find yourself in a full-on meltdown. I had such a dramatic weep-fest the other night, crying so hard and so long my teeth hurt. Talk about catharsis. Exhausted, I barely slept and then had a healing session with John. After the healing during which I had an up close and personal attending by an angel, feathered wings and a sassy attitude (my guides are always sassy with me) I slept for 4 hours in a deep, deep recharge. When I awoke I felt completely refreshed, the storm behind me, for now. Like a hot, cleansing shower after a grueling hike, the energy work cleared, cleansed, and refreshed me. John’s work is a blessing, an affirmation of LIFE.
Text John Wing Flower at 215. 605. 5731 to schedule your clearing and energetic/emotional support. You brush your teeth every day, right? You also have to clear and clean your energy field. Try it yourself and you’ll experience the freshness yourself.
As you clear your energy field you are ripe for the powerful transformational trigger of the New Moon Solar Eclipse at 10 degrees Cancer. Where the eclipse falls in relation to your own chart will show you where the triggers for new growth will be opening in your own life. Cancer is a cardinal WATER sign ruled by the Moon. Cancer is intuitive, nurturing, unconditionally loving – the archetype of the Divine Mother. She is powerful, driven by her feelings, and action-oriented to nurture and support. Cancer loves the home and functions best when she feels safe and secure. What helps you feel safe? What connects you to your foundation? Set your intentions for more foundational support, comfort, and safety as the New Moon births on July 2. What gets triggered in your own chart will manifest new growth over the next 3-6 months.
Whether you’re laying low, hiding out in your favorite safe spot or playing out your story in dramatic style, or anywhere in between, I wish you LOVE and starry blessings.
