Mother Earth Embraces the Proud and Passionate Lion

Pinkgoldcumulus Summer is in full force as the Cancer zodiac month draws to a close. The sweltering heat sucks moisture from the land and towering cumulus clouds rise up above the wide expanse of Wrights Mesa. Magnificent sunsets give way to a delicate crescent Moon cradling brilliant Venus in turquoise twilight. The nights are warm and embracing. I feel blessed and fortunate to be here now, close to Mother Nature, witnessing the eternal dance of the stars and planets – here on Earth – a part of life, as we know it.

We must water our gardens, make our beds, eat good food, tend to our chores and show up for others and ourselves when it’s needed and necessary. The amount of love and quality of nurturing we bestow upon what we care for equals the amount of love and quality of life we experience in return. Everything in life is an equation, a balancing system of cause and effect. In nature, there is no reward or punishment, there is only consequence.

Goldsunset In the Northern Hemisphere, our annual cycle around the Sun gifts us with the sensations of seasonal change. We entrain with and transform in a process of magical metamorphosis. The natural zodiac wheel turns and evolves from one sign to the next, each one preparing for and leading in to what lies ahead. So, as cuddly Cancer prepares us for courageous Leo, let us count our blessings, treat each other with kindness and compassion, honor the great beauty and bounty of our Mother and nurture our way toward the passionate path of the proud, generous, loving, strong-of-heart Lion. God bless and may the power of the Sun, Earth, Moon and stars be with you!

Aries (Mar. 20-Apr.19)
The last week of Cancer favors acts of self-care and self-nurturing combined with loving, compassionate action toward others. It’s simply no longer possible to avoid the truth when it comes to self-indulgent, self-serving habits and behaviors. The time has come for sweeping, dramatic change. Focus on doing the next right thing, live in the present and let go.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
As the fresh, new Cancer lunar cycle unfolds, count your blessings and say your prayers. Good communication is key to your overall success now, and this includes connecting to the world of spirit. Listen carefully to what others have to say and pay attention to feelings and messages that come via intuition or unusual circumstance. Relax and breathe.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Matters of financial security, earning power and income in general have dominated the scene for several weeks. Somehow, you instinctively know that all is as it should be, but that said, you might still be victim to bouts of fear and doubt. Maintain momentum, be on time, meet deadlines and know the future is in the present. Simply do your best and keep the faith.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
What a month it’s been! Two eclipses in your sign translate as a time of great personal impact and self-generated power. The stars have lined up for a stellar year of new beginnings and fresh frontiers. Gather courage and cultivate self-confidence as you pack your bags and prepare for the journey of a lifetime. The cosmos favor sweet success. Go forth and grow!

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
The recent New Moon solar eclipse shook the heavens and showered you with shining stars and shimmering angelic presence. Look for the glimmering glow of hope and love on the faces of others and let it fill your heart with light. Stay positive amidst life’s chaos and drama – don’t let it get you down – and know you are blessed. Acceptance is the answer.  

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Plenty of action and reactions over the last few weeks may have taken its toll, but, all in all, it’s happening exactly as it should be. Accepting life as it is, as it comes, can be challenging. But, how about letting go of resistance, going with the flow and simply doing the best you can in the now? You’ve been carving out a new life and new you. Let it be. Be you.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
The Cancer zodiac month and potent ecliptic power in orb has pushed you in new directions of awakening and awareness. You’ve had to let go of habits and behaviors that no longer serve a positive purpose, purge the old and embrace uncertainty. Fresh and ready, young and old, you face a brave new world of unlimited possibility and potential. Keep the faith.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
As you prepare for month of increasing responsibility and social visibility, take some time out to explore the possibilities and potential of travel. Perhaps it’s time to go beyond the proverbial horizon and explore the world. At the very least, research and consider the options. Your gifts and talents may find happiness in a bigger venue, on a larger stage.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
Steamy emotions and emotional reactions regarding joint investment, shared finance, secret dealings and psychological or physical intimacy may have created distance or discomfort in your relationships. Don’t worry or brood over what has come and gone. Everything happens for good reason and the gift comes via acceptance. Nurture inner peace.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Unusual happenings are par for the course these days. Other people, external circumstance and events taking place outside of your body, house and home seem to have a way of creeping into your life and lifeblood. Remain as calm as possible and maintain healthy boundaries. Know the difference between your stuff and their stuff. Focus on your own.

Aquarius (Jan. 19-Feb. 18)
Neptune retrograde in Aquarius may have placed you in a period of rest or recovery, a time ripe for spiritual exploration and self-reflection. Do the inner work and discover what’s going on inside your heart and head. Life is often too fast and too busy to take time to appreciate the weather, watch the sunsets or gaze at the stars. The time is now. Enjoy the show!

Pisces (Feb. 18-Mar. 20)
Indulge yourself in the love of mother and Mother Nature as summer seduces your senses and soothes your soul. Warm nights and lazy days create a season of fun and romance, light and laughter. Refrain from worry and cultivate attitudes of gratitude as you see beauty and embrace grace. Happiness is a choice. Live in the present and be here now
