June 25 to July 2, 2009

Visible Planets: Morning: Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter  Evening: Saturn

GetAttachment Down here in the West End, the baby bluebirds have left their nests and are learning to fly. They are being fed fresh bugs by their attentive parents as they huddle together on the lower branches of a small ponderosa pine tree in our front yard. Across the mesa, on the Full Circle Ranch, baby raccoons huddle together in the top of an aspen tree and a spotted fawn curls up in the tall, green grass below. Baby colts and fillies nurse in the field next door and tiny baby rabbits run in the forest. The Canadian geese are tending to their goslings and my husband even saw a mother bear and her cub frolicking in a meadow next to Naturita Creek from our canyon rim above it. The roses are starting to bloom and the desert cacti are covered with blossoms. Everywhere I see fresh life being sustained by nature.

The Sun has moved in to the tropical zodiac sign of Cancer, and the sizzling season of summer has begun. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is the season of nurturing and growth, when plants and animals depend upon the nourishing rains and nutritious foods of the Mother Earth for their survival and development. And, it’s a time for us humans to nurture and care-take, to water and weed actual and metaphorical gardens, to take care of our children, our families and ourselves.

As the Moon grows in size this week and the Sun moves through the early degrees of Cancer, pay attention to the quality and quantity of your nurturing. Are you giving love and attention to those nearest and dearest? Are you eating nutritious food and taking good care of your body? Are you thinking positive thoughts, acting with pure intention and cultivating a spiritually conscious lifestyle? Are you walking a path of heart?

This is one of the most glorious, invigorating times of the year, when hot days and warm nights invite us outside and throw us into pools, lakes and rivers. It’s time to explore the high country, pick wild strawberries and sleep out under the stars. It’s time to let the Mother Earth love and nurture us, heal our wounds and restore our sanity. Good luck and may the great, loving, life-giving embrace of the Great Cosmic Mother be with you!

(Mar. 21-Apr.19)
The recent Cancer New Moon opened the window on a lunar month of high intensity, change and awakening. Pay attention to your feelings, instincts and intuitions. Take good care of yourself physically and recognize the strong connection between thoughts and emotions. Health is truly wealth, without it, you’re stuck. Make healthy choices.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
As the Cancer zodiac month progresses, the waxing Moon illuminates connections between body, mind and spirit. Your ongoing transformation regarding authority, professional and parental status continues. Letting go of old, out-dated ideas sets you free. Step in to the age of open-minded awakening and ego-dissolution. Go with the flow and ride the wave.

(May 21-June 21)
It’s all about you this week and the busy-busy bee syndrome may have you buzzing about in a flurry of trials and tasks, looking for solutions and finding them. Funny how things work out, if we let them! Keep your nose clean and do the next right thing. Live and lead by example, especially when it comes to children and peers. Do your best.

Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Birthday cakes and flickering candles celebrate another revolution around the Sun. This month’s lunar cycle heralds the beginning of a personally transformational 18-year period of rebirth and regeneration for Moonchildren. Get deeply in touch with personal values and tap in to heartfelt emotions. Rise above ego and set yourself free. The time is now.

(July 23-Aug.22)
Partnerships and one-to-one relationships continue to change shape and shift in scope, perspective and priority. Long time friends and people who were once major players in your daily life may have drifted or disappeared. Review the past, but don’t dwell there. Illusion and delusion are traps that keep us stuck. Learn the lessons and practice the teachings.

(Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Reaching out to people you respect and admire is an exercise that builds confidence and builds spiritual muscle. We have a tendency to become like those whom we surround ourselves with. Make sure you are cultivating healthy relationships and maintaining healthy boundaries as you cross bridges, nurture friendship and practice equanimity.

(Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Stirrings of the heart continue as you reminisce and relive days and dreams of both agony and ecstasy. Freedom is a theme these days and practicing present moment awareness is a means of experiencing it. Feeling your feelings and accept them. Breathe in and relax as you exhale. Everything is exactly as it should be, right now. It’s all good.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
The constellation of the Scorpion in the night sky throughout the Cancer zodiac month is magical, magnificent and downright transcendent – check it out! Cosmic doors open to those willing to travel the high road, walk the halls of spirit and see beyond the current horizon. Fly above your life and take in the view. Express feelings and let go of resentment.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Emotional connections to people, places and things is a theme throughout the Cancer zodiac and lunar month. Intimate sharing and psychological and/or sexual experiences with others reach deep in to your heart and soul. Be willing to feel your feelings and follow intuition. Cultivate sensitivity and nurturing behaviors. Be sweet and give love.

Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
The wheel of fortune turns to point in the direction of significant others and one-to-one interactions. Check out your reflection in the mirror of your relationships and do what you can to improve and enhance what you see. Accept your part in every play, weed your own garden and keep your side of the street clean. Change is constant, stay open and live free.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
The retrograde motion of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune in your sign has put you on a revolving wheel of recurring themes and repeating lessons – most of which center on health. Clarity, sobriety and integrity enhance progress and promote growth. It’s time to let go – once and for all – of dysfunctional behaviors and destructive habits. Breathe deep and live free.

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Love and romance, creative pursuit and recreational activities fuel inner fires as you feel the power of creation and the desire to create. Tap in to the angelic presence of spirits and let the energy infuse you with new insight and divine essence. Relax in the moment and go with the flow. Be kind and gentle to yourself and compassionate with others.
