This weekend we’re coming off of the bright and fiery Summer Solstice energy and into the subjective, emotional waters of Friday’s New Moon in Cancer. We also have some positive intensity and sexual tension building in our relationships this weekend with sensual Venus in harmonious aspect with the planetary ruler of sex, death and transformation. After that we’ll round out the weekend with a loving and compassionate mindset thanks to the deep, intuitive and emotionally vulnerable communications brought on by Mercury in Cancer as the messenger planet comes into a harmonious trine with mystical Neptune.
The New Moon is the time each month when the Sun and Moon come into alignment in an exact conjunction. This unification of the two luminaries marks a point in time in which our subjective experience merges with our physical reality, producing an energy ripe for intention setting and manifestation. On Friday night, the New Moon in Cancer will give us a chance for a fresh start and new beginnings as we reflect upon our own personal comfort zones.
Once, sometimes twice, each year the Full Moon in Sagittarius comes around to shine light on the bigger picture and to help us to gain greater perspective on the events of our lives. It shows us that everything we create in this world is the sum of all of its parts, and it helps to refresh our memory as to why we do the things we do. The Full Moon in Sagittarius shows us exactly how our daily efforts and communications collaborate to help us to achieve our most optimistic hopes and dreams.
