New Moon Report for June 19th – New Moon in Gemini

New Moon in Gemini

Tuesday, June 19, 8:02 am PDT, 11:02 am EDT

The New Moon in curious Gemini normally sparks fresh ideas and connections but scatters attention. Yet this one brings focus and maturity. It’s the second Sun-Moon conjunction in this sign in a less than a month, so we benefit from the experience of the earlier New Moon on May 20. Serious Saturn forms a constructive trine to this lunation, adding structure and responsibility. Feisty Mars also gets in the act with a square from earthy Virgo that challenges us to turn concepts into concrete reality. This aspect can tighten nerves with tension that provides the impetus to take immediate action.

The New Moon in Gemini spawns a million and one ideas, most of which blow away in the breeze. Yet this lunation presents uncommon opportunities for capturing the best ones and putting them into words. People juggling too many projects can benefit from letting some of those balls drop. Reducing intellectual clutter clears the way for our most valuable notions to turn into reality.

 

Weekend Lunar Love Horoscopes for the Week of 29 – 31

Weekend Love: Lunar Love

by Jeff Jawer

Road to Romance

July 29 – 31

Opportunities abound for starting a new romance or reviving interest in a current relationship this weekend. Things may start out slowly with the Moon in self-protective Cancer on Friday, which is better suited for low-key family events and a bit of rest and relaxation. Then there’s a dramatic shift of mood beginning very late on Friday night and kicking into high gear on Saturday.

The Sun and Moon join in the sign of the Lion, marking the New Moon in a dramatic fashion. This fiery lunation starts a fresh cycle that’s rich with energy, enthusiasm and extravagance. Some of us may go overboard in expressing ourselves, perhaps overwhelming shy individuals with the sheer force of our personalities. Proud and powerful Leo encourages us to be bold in our pursuit of love and happiness. The key to making magic happen is to avoid taking life too seriously.

When Leo is light and playful, it creates a delightful atmosphere in which everything feels like a game. We’re willing to open up and take risks with people who are fun, lively and straightforward. But when insecurity strikes and egos weaken, we tend to try too hard and might appear pompous or pretentious.

Generosity gets hearts beating faster during this demonstrative Leo lunar transit. When attention is put on making others happier, barriers drop and the road to romance opens. Whether it’s lending a helping hand without being asked, delivering a gift for no special reason or offering an unsolicited compliment, the more you give, the more you’ll receive in return.

 

New Moon Report for July 14th – Full Moon in Capricorn

Full Moon in Capricorn

Thursday, July 14, 11:40 pm PDT, Friday, July 15, 2:40 am EDT

The Full Moon in determined Capricorn opposes the Sun in sensitive Cancer, raising issues of whether to toughen up to deal with the outer world or seek cover in warm and fuzzy places. But as with all oppositions, there is truth on both sides of the equation. Rather than choosing to ignore inner needs or running away from challenges because they’re too difficult, this lunation reminds us that we have a full spectrum of responses available and can learn to flow from fierce to fluffy as we choose.
