June 2022 Astrological Forecast

Your June 2022 Astrological Forecast Is Here

The stars predict a rollercoaster month for some.

Mercury goes direct on the 3rd, so we all start by taking a deep breath and experiencing some relief. We’re now free to sign leases and contracts, take the next step in our relationships, or make big purchases without any unexpected situations coming back to bite us. However, Saturn does go retrograde the following day. Those who won’t commit to a conscious internal process of reflection regarding their duties will suffer the consequences of this retrograde later.

This goes for all zodiac signs in general: prepare to be strategic in the way you communicate and the people you date. Some tricky situations regarding communication in all areas of your life and dating, both casually and within a serious relationship, will come up. They will be resolved in due course if you put your best foot forward, but prepare to leave carelessness behind.

What to Expect This Month

The month starts on a very mixed note with Mercury going direct on the 3rd, only for Saturn to go retrograde the next day. With Mercury direct, things are finally what they seem, and we can stop looking for the fine print (both literally and metaphorically). We’re finally free to act in ways that will have long-term consequences without preparing for unpleasant surprises. However, the Saturn retrograde that starts on the 4th of this month and ends on October 22nd will demand a conscious process of introspection on our part. This process regards our duties. What do we owe our family? What is expected of us to deliver our best in our careers? What are our duties to our community, especially those who are marginalised? These are all questions you should make time to reflect on. You may choose to skip this process. However, if you do so, life will strike out after the retrograde is over.

On the 10th, we have a harmonious aspect between Mercury in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Mercury deals with communication and the mind, and Pluto deals with processes of transformation and the healing that happens after destruction. Grief is particularly relevant on this day. Circle this date as a great time to journal on traumatic things. You’re very likely to be able to articulate what you feel regarding Plutonian themes. Unexpected conversations may happen on this day regarding these topics. And even if they feel uncomfortable at the moment, embrace them as a healing opportunity. On the 11th, Uranus in Taurus conjuncts Venus in the same sign. On this day, expect the unexpected in your love life, both for the bad and the good. 

This month, the Full Moon happens on the zodiac sign of Sagittarius on the 14th. This is an invitation to leave behind certain elements of political beliefs, religions, and life philosophies that may be holding you back. If you have a tendency toward fanaticism or getting overly committed to a certain line of thinking, start to question it. It’s not doing you any favours. If one of your teachers or mentors brings out the worst in you, gently let them go – or at least start being more critical of what they say. They may still have some valuable lessons for you, but not everything they say is gospel.

On the 18th, we have a more tense aspect between Saturn in Aquarius and Venus in Taurus. This can manifest in a variety of ways: conflicts of interest between yourself and a partner or potential partner, a partner’s demands or expectations getting in the way of your duties, and your own sense of value coming into conflict with your responsibilities. Be prepared to defend what’s essential. 

On the 21st, the Sun enters Cancer and there’s a trine between Venus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. The focus becomes more on our emotions and our home. More importantly, there is a harmonious aspect between Venus (the planet of love, romance, aesthetics, pleasure and, most importantly, the way we assign value) and Pluto (the planet of transformation and rebirth). If you’re in any way artistically inclined, make some time on your schedule on this date to create some art, in whatever shape or form. Not only will it be a good piece of art, it will probably have healing effects on those who interact with it. You may also find some sense of healing regarding past events in your love life around this date, so don’t skip any therapy appointments – you may be on the edge of a breakthrough!

On the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini. Words and conversation suddenly become more attractive. On the 28th, Neptune goes retrograde in Pisces. We’re invited to go within and reflect on compassion, but also our own delusional tendencies and the ways we deny ourselves of the factual truth. On the same day, the New Moon in Cancer invites us to manifest a new beginning regarding our homes and our relationship with our parents (if they are not among us, remember that you can still work on your relationship with them at a soul level), expanding our families, the closest members of our support networks, and giving and receiving the emotional nourishment we need.     

What This Means for Your Zodiac Sign

Aries

Affirmation: “I decide to honour my emotions, whether they are positive or negative, and make space for them.”

Last month, Jupiter, the planet of good luck and expansion, entered your zodiac sign. It will stay there until May 16th, 2023. This mostly means good news for you overall. However, on the 29th of this month, Jupiter enters into a tense aspect (a square with the Sun in Cancer). This means that your need to expand and find purpose for your actions will be in conflict with the more emotional side in your endeavours that you may be neglecting. If you’re looking to earn more, for example, you may not be tapping into repressed emotions that may be holding you back. Money vibrates in exactly the same way as trust.

If, due to emotional issues, you lack trust in either yourself or important players in your life that have proven to be trustworthy, this tense aspect may drive you to come to terms with it. If you hope to attract the right partner, make sure you are ready to be open and vulnerable with the people you date. Your physical energy and vitality look good throughout the month. Should you experience any medical issues this month, besides going to the doctor, consider turning to alternative practices like the bio-decoding of emotions as a complement. This alternative therapy sees physical illness as a manifestation of unresolved emotional issues. 

Taurus

Affirmation: “I am open to the unexpected and trust that the universe is looking out for me.”

June will be a very active month for you. Your finances overall will continue as they are, with the notable exception of the 16th, when you may find out some heartbreaking news regarding money or other assets. You will see a turning point in your love life on the 11th. Sadly, whether it’s a positive or negative turning point, we can’t tell as Uranus will take the wheels on your love life on that day. It’s wisest to expect the unexpected with that planet. The 10th is a potent day for healing any mental or physical matters. Mercury retrograde was especially affecting you. When it goes direct on the 3rd, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Your words will no longer be misunderstood, and communication will start to go as normal, without a hitch.

On the 10th, Mercury in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn. This is a beautiful day to do some healing through the use of words. If you meant to have a conversation with someone important to you to mend your bond with them, June 10th is a great day to do so. On June 11th, Venus will conjunct Uranus in your sign. This brings with it a mixed bag of possible outcomes. From meeting a partner who will challenge your way of thinking and who’s generally very innovative in your outlook to completely rethinking what you value and why due to an unfortunate incident, anything can happen. I know that, as a Taurus, you prefer more concrete predictions, but Uranus is unpredictable in nature. Expect the unexpected. On the 18th, Venus in your sign forms a tense aspect with Saturn in Aquarius. If your love life has made you neglect your career or other duties, prepare for a rude awakening. 

Gemini 

Affirmation: “I honour my duties and do my best.”

This is a great month for love, especially after the 23rd. Your finances will stay as they are until exactly the end of the month. After June 29th, there will be movement, both positive and negative. There won’t be much movement regarding your health. If you’ve been underperforming, this may be a particularly difficult month regarding your career. On the 13th, Mercury enters Gemini. You’ll be the star of every conversation you have. If you work on communicating in some way, you may achieve some important career milestones this month.

On the 16th, the Sun in your sign enters into a tense aspect (a square) with Saturn in Aquarius. If you’ve been underperforming in your career or not paying attention to other duties (including family and your community), this will be a difficult day for you. You’ll have to face the music. But you have nothing to worry about if you’ve been doing your best in everything you absolutely have to do. On the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini. You’ll become especially magnetic to all sorts of suitors, and you may even find a new partner after this date. If you’re already in a serious relationship, be prepared for things to get spicier in the bedroom towards the end of the month. 

Cancer

Affirmation: “I seek what sets my soul on fire and motivates me to take action.”

For our dear crabs, June will be relatively quiet and uneventful until the 29th. As long as you get your sense of purpose sorted by this date and start taking concrete action towards achieving your goals, you can use the New Moon to manifest whatever your heart desires regarding finances, health, or love. We recommend you rest and practise self-care in advance for the events that will take place after this date. You will need all the energy you can get for when the energies change on the 29th.

It’s also advisable to talk to a therapist or trusted friend about what motivates you or gives you purpose, as well as how this sense of motivation (or lack thereof) may be affecting the way you act – or fail to act. This is so because this miraculous New Moon happens at the same time as a tense aspect (a square) between Jupiter, which is the planet of purpose (among other more well-known characteristics), which is currently transiting Aries, the zodiac sign associated with taking action.   

Leo

Affirmation: “I choose the right collaborators to make my dreams come true.”

June is all about collaboration for the lions. It could be a great month for finding love or turning over a new leaf in an existing relationship. Collaboration could help you find the clue to heal existing illnesses and keep your overall health. Finding a partner in crime to launch a side business could be the clue to making some extra money this month. This is so because the climate in your zodiac sign itself is quiet. There are no transits of note affecting Leo directly. However, as Saturn – the planet of responsibility and duty – is currently placed on Aquarius (the zodiac sign that represents romantic and business partners for Leo), and Saturn has both tense and harmonious aspects with other planets this month, here’s the key to harness the current astrological climate and make it work in your favour.

On the 4th, Saturn in Aquarius goes retrograde. Your partner may become more introspective, or you may need to do some inner digging yourself to find out what’s truly keeping you back from finding your soulmate. On the 18th, Venus in Taurus forms a tense aspect (a square) with Saturn in Aquarius. You can harness this as an opportunity to grow your career (represented by Taurus in your tenth house) by facing the opportunities for growth presented between the tension of what makes you valuable in your career and what your partner/collaborator brings to the table. The energies of this month may also translate into a relatively quiet month for you personally, but a need for you to step up for a partner or an associate who’s facing a lot of difficulties.   

Virgo

Affirmation: “I attract my dream career by putting myself out there.”

June is a huge month for your career, with both ups and downs. If you want to improve your finances, you will have better luck after the 23rd. If you want to take up a new healthy habit or generally improve your physical health, you can take advantage of the Full Moon this month. If you’re single, you’ll remain single. Partnered-up Virgos, on the other hand, may experience some bumps in the road towards the end of the month.

On the 13th, your ruler, Mercury, will enter Gemini on your tenth house of career. Your words acquire a new weight in your job or overall industry. This is a great time to write pieces you can publish on LinkedIn or in a well-known publication in your industry or be a guest on a relevant podcast. On the 16th, there’s tension between Mercury and Neptune in Pisces, as they will form a square. If you have a partner, there may be some bickering. Try to remain patient and don’t make any decisions too quickly. On the 23rd, you become magnetic as a professional. If you want to get a new job, start applying around this date. If you want to get a promotion in your current job, ask for it around this date. 

Libra

Affirmation: “I accept my efforts take some time to pay off.”

June is all about transformation, travel, and defying your philosophy around life. None of this is easy, but it can be rewarding if you embrace the challenge. Single Libras should get lucky at any point, since last month, Jupiter – the planet of good luck – entered their seventh house of partnership. Partnered Libras may see conflict between one of their close friends and their partners, but as Libras, they are innate mediators and should be more than able to solve the situation before it escalates. The 10th is a great day for taking concrete steps for improving health, be it physical or mental. Personal finances won’t see much of a change, either positive or negative, but there may be some movement regarding either shared finances or an inheritance. On the 10th, there’s a harmonious aspect between Mercury (placed on Libra’s eighth house of transformation and shared finances) and Pluto (the planet of rebirth). This may entail an unexpected inheritance or a breakthrough regarding present healing efforts.

On the 11th, Venus and Uranus join forces again on Libra’s eighth house of transformation. Shared investments may start to bring in unexpected profit or Libras may start to heal their relationship to pleasure and the way they perceive their own self-worth – looks like that hard work in therapy is starting to finally make a difference! On the 16th, an important mentor of yours may let you down, or you will be forced to confront some of your more extreme core beliefs. Specifically, some of our Libra teachers may need to revise the way they teach and how they form relationships with their students. On the 18th, the square between Venus and Saturn will bring in more painful memories surrounding pleasure and the inner child. Look for support wherever you can. Finally, on the 23rd, Venus enters Gemini, bringing some much-needed harmony when it comes to travel plans and life philosophies.  

Scorpio

Affirmation: “I proactively take care of those I love without losing sight of my needs.”

June is a relatively quiet month surrounding your health and finances. The one exception for your finances is the Full Moon in Sagittarius, which can help you finally get rid of either an external situation or person who’s been acting like a leech for your bank account or a negative habit that’s leading you to overspend. It will be a very hectic month in your love life, with both highs and lows.

On the 3rd, if you haven’t been able to see eye to eye with your partner or if there has been a lot of bickering due to misunderstandings or miscommunication, things will start to become smoother and more harmonious as Mercury goes direct in your seventh house of partnership. The 10th is a great day for any healing that’s needed in your relationship or, if you’re single, any of your own beliefs or attitudes that are stopping you from getting partnered up. The 18th brings with it more tense energy surrounding your love life. Your partner will be in direct conflict with one of your parents, an aspect of your home, or one of your children – and you’ll have to deal with the mess. 

Sagittarius

Affirmation: “I listen to my body and give it rest when it needs to rest.”

Your finances may see a significant improvement after the 10th. It seems some of your efforts regarding the way you manage your time or efforts towards improving one of your relationships with a client, boss, or colleague will finally pay off. You’ll reap the rewards as financial gain. Your love life is very active this month, with both highlights and rather tense situations coming up. You may experience fatigue towards the middle of the month. If you can, give your body the rest it needs.

The biggest day of the month for you is the 14th. The Full Moon will hit you, hard. This can manifest as physical exhaustion. However, if you’ve been doing your homework, this can be a great opportunity to get rid of any idea you have of yourself that’s been holding you back. Regarding your love life, on the 16th, some lies your partner may have told you may come up, or you’ll have to comfort them after someone important to them lets them down. On the 23rd, opportunities for new love will start to flourish. Take advantage of them.  

Capricorn

Affirmation: “I do my best and trust the universe with the rest.”

Your love life will stay as-is throughout June, with a promising new beginning starting to manifest around the 29th. Your health will also be stable throughout the month, with the 10th offering some harmonious energies that are ideal for conceiving or getting a diagnosis related to the heart or the circulatory system. The area with the most movement in June will definitely be your finances. On the 4th, Saturn will go retrograde in your second house of personal assets and money. Constraints that seemed to be on the outside regarding your money will let up a bit. Work on some limiting beliefs during this time, and you’ll manifest abundance. On the 10th, there’s a harmonious aspect between Mercury in your fifth house of children, self-expression, and casual romance, and Pluto in your first house.

This date is a great time to conceive. If you’ve been experiencing symptoms related to your blood, circulatory system, or heart, the healthcare professionals you see around this time will be aided by the astrological energy to diagnose you correctly or show you a more effective treatment. On the 16th, there’s some harmonious energy between the Sun in your sixth house of the workplace and daily habits and Saturn in your second house of finances and assets. Your previous efforts to be on top of the details and have a good relationship with bosses and colleagues will pay off in more money coming your way. There’s a more tense energy surrounding your finances on the 18th, when Venus in Taurus will square Saturn in Aquarius. Your need to assert yourself in some way will ruffle a few feathers, and it may cost you. The New Moon on the 29th happens in your seventh house of committed partnership. This is a great time to manifest a new companion.    

Aquarius

Affirmation: “I love, embrace and listen to my inner child – especially about what she has to say about mother and father.”

Your love life will stay more or less stable. Your finances may suffer on the 16th. Your children, inner child, or a casual lover may raise up an unexpected bill that you’ll have to take care of. Your own health has been very demanding. Since Saturn entered your sign in April after a retrograde period in which it came back to Capricorn for a spell, you’ve been asked to pull up your socks and make some extra effort in all areas of life. On the 4th, Saturn goes retrograde until October. Its effects will still be there, but they will be far more subtle and mostly manifest as an inner process that you can choose to nurture or ignore. The choice you make now will have an impact later when it comes direct in October. If you’ve come to peace with your inner sense of duty, you will be rewarded by outside forces in October.

This is something that isn’t said enough of Saturn: it does reward honest hard work. If you choose to ignore it, you will feel relief in the short-term, but prepare for October. The good news is you have a choice. On the 16th, there is a beautiful trine between the Sun in your fifth house of self-expression and Saturn in your first house. Make some art and show people who you are. It can bring in a positive outcome. On the 18th, there’s a more tense energy between Venus in your fourth house of home, family, and parents, and Saturn in your first. You’ll be confronted with some issues related to the place you live or some unresolved issues with your parents. It can be painful, but take it as an opportunity for growth. Step up your game if you haven’t been helping out your ailing parents enough, and try to let go of any anger you may still carry towards them. 

Pisces

Affirmation: “I am prepared to face the truth about my family, and I acknowledge my inner child as a member of said family.”

June will be a relatively quiet month for your love life, and we see no reason for you to be concerned about your health (if you do or your GP does, please don’t ignore your own instinct or their professional advice). There will be some movement regarding your finances that have been looking good since Jupiter – the planet of expansion and good luck – moved to your second house of assets and finances last month. However, watch out for the square between this planet and the Sun in Cancer on your house of self-expression and children on the 29th.

If you’re trying for a child, fertility treatments may end up costing a pretty penny, or you will have unexpected bills for your child. Your inner child can act up and do some damage to your bank account, too. The 29th is also a beautiful day to conceive or make art. All of you Pisceans are fond of some sort of artistic medium, so don’t miss out on giving yourself the gift of making time for art. Other dates to watch out for relate to Neptune’s transit in your sign. Neptune will have a tense aspect with the Sun in Gemini on the 16th. Some truths may be revealed regarding your parents, your family history, or your home – and they will be painful to hear. This planet will go retrograde on the 28th. Beware of self-delusion from this day on.

July 2022 Astrological Forecast

Your July 2022 Astrological Forecast Is Here

An intense month with mixed energies awaits.

The energy of July is mostly tense. The main culprits are Pluto and Neptune. They are transpersonal planets. This means that, when they decide to throw a tantrum, the whole of humanity has to listen. However, all of the planets seem to be arguing with (or at the very least challenging) each other. 

On a collective level, there are organisations that affect the lives of many that are very active – both for good and bad. There seems to be a push and pull from within. Lawmakers, both national and international, central banks and other important financial institutions, as well as media outlets that have a global reach seem to be working non-stop. The good news is that this tense planetary energy that can manifest as stressful events can become an opportunity for growth and learning on a personal level – if it’s approached with the right mindset, that is.

What to Expect This Month

Mars enters Taurus on the 1st, forcing us to slow down our actions. Mercury also enters Cancer on this date, making us more compassionate in the way we communicate. There will be a lot of tense aspects that have either Pluto or Neptune as key players. The full moon in Capricorn of the 13th will give us the final blow in these changing times for the workforce. Ever since the pandemic, things have changed drastically. Collectively, this full moon will materialise as old ways of working finally dying out. 

On the 19th and 20th, the Sun will oppose Pluto. This will help shine a light on power imbalances, abuse, and taboo topics. On the 28th, the new moon in Leo offers us an opportunity to manifest a new beginning regarding creative endeavours and/or inner child healing. On the same day, Jupiter goes retrograde until November. This retrograde invites you to reflect on your own sense of purpose. You’ll reap the rewards of this inner dialogue once it goes direct.

The 31st is quite a date, astrologically speaking. The Sun in Leo will form a harmonious aspect with Jupiter in Aries, making this a great day when we will possibly discover a healing piece of art. On the same day, Mercury in Leo will oppose Saturn in Aquarius. Even though this is a great day for self-expression, we’re also reminded to keep the balance between the individual voice and the voice of the collective. On the 31st, we also have a conjunction between Mars and Uranus. Innovation is coming and can’t be stopped.    

What This Means for Your Zodiac Sign

Aries

Affirmation: “I am determined to find out how to nurture and care for my own energy and vitality.”

Most Aries natives seem to be enjoying a surge in vitality and energy since Jupiter entered their sign last December. This vitality will remain with you throughout the month until Jupiter goes retrograde on the 28th. After that date and until November the 23rd, you will be encouraged to look within for this source of energy that seemed to come out of nowhere. On the 31st, however, you will have a surge of creative energy when the Sun forms a trine with Jupiter – perhaps this is an indication that making art is what replenishes and nourishes you.

The full moon of the 13th may mean a change of jobs for you. Expect some surprises in your finances this month. Whether they are good or bad, we really can’t say, as Uranus has been in your second house of personal assets and finances for a while now, sometimes throwing gold mines your way and sometimes tough times in which bills seem to appear non-stop. The 28th will be a tough one for your personal finances as Mercury in Leo will square Uranus. Your communication style seems to be costing you money. Remember that you can turn this tense energy into an opportunity. Self-awareness will be rewarded. On the 31st, expect the unexpected. Your ruler, Mars, will conjunct Uranus. If you can wait out your rage, perhaps a new source of money will be revealed. Perhaps, it will hit you with an unexpected bill or economic loss. Be prepared for either outcome and trust that empty spaces will soon be filled by divinity.

When it comes to romance, whether you are coupled-up or single, this month is more about flirtation and fun than compromise or sacrifice. On the 23rd, there is a beautiful trine between Jupiter in your sign and Mercury in Leo. This is a great day to flirt with that person you have had your eyes on for a while or seduce your long-term partner with your words. Beware of your temper between the 26th and the 27th. Your ruler, Mars, will form a square with Mercury. For the single Aries out there, the new moon in Leo on the 28th is a great time to manifest a new suitor.

Taurus

Affirmation: “I use my anger as motivation to do good things, I do not let it get the best of me.”

First, the good news: no sluggishness for you this month. Mars, the planet of action and energy, enters your sign on July 1st. You will feel proactive and ready to take on the world. However, your anger will also be flying high, especially the first two days of this month. Because of a tense aspect between Mars and Pluto, this is a time where arguments (or even fights) may start or escalate. 

The full moon of the 13th invites you to let go of any life philosophies or mentors that may be constraining your horizons more than expanding them. A few of you will decide to quit university or otherwise interrupt – temporarily or permanently – your higher studies. The new moon in Leo happens on the same day as a tense aspect between Mercury and Uranus, so beware of the words you speak – especially to those who share a home with you. The 31st is a day to be both cautious and open-minded.

Try to refrain from acting, as your actions may have a disagreeable and unexpected result due to a conjunction between Uranus and Mars. Your love life will be quiet this month. Your finances will start to lose a bit of steam after the 18th, when Venus moves from your second house to the third, but it’s nothing you need to worry about.    

Gemini 

Affirmation: “I am prepared to transform into a better version of myself.”

The full moon of the 13th is a great time to do shadow work or start therapy. You’re fed up with certain aspects of your personality. You are ready for a positive transformation. The day before, a harmonious aspect between Venus, which will transit your sign during the first half of the month, will help you see the light when it comes to the way you choose what and who to commit to. The new moon of the 28th is a great day to manifest a short holiday if you need one, or to put yourself out there using your words for whatever you want to have in your life.

Your finances seem hectic. You will start to see a true improvement after the 18th, once Venus – one of the two benefic planets alongside Jupiter – enters Cancer in your second house of personal assets. The day before and the 18th itself, there is a harmonious aspect also in your second house. This aspect is between Mercury, the Sun, and Neptune – expect good tidings. If your profession is related to the arts, this will be a particularly good date for you. The days after that, the 19th and 20th, will be more tense, and you may suffer from some kind of economic loss. Your love life is relatively quiet this month. If you’re actively looking for a partner, concentrate your efforts on the days before the 18th, as Venus will be in your sign until that date.

Cancer

Affirmation: “I express my most negative feelings through art.”

On July 2nd, Mercury forms a trine with Saturn and a square with Neptune. You are doing your best to do what you must with your words, but there seems to be some confusion on the other end (or, worse, someone trying to lie to you or manipulate you). Look into self-delusion as well. Between July 16th and 17th, you will gain some clarity on this matter. This is a great day to make art if you’re at all artistically inclined. 

Your finances will see an improvement in the second half of the month, when Venus – one of the planets tied to wealth – enters your own sign on the 18th. The panorama regarding money looks positive, with two exceptions: between the 26th and 27th, your own temper can go against you when manifesting wealth. The new moon in Leo is a bit of a mixed bag for you. It is a great time to manifest wealth, but there is a catch. Uranus will play its part and give you the unexpected. 

The love lives of the crabs will be hectic. This includes coupled-up Cancers, those who are dating casually, and those who are single. The coupled-up Cancers will have the hardest time. It doesn’t mean you’ll break up if your relationship is solid, but expect all sorts of challenges, as Pluto is placed in your seventh house of partnership and will bring some tense energies. Look at what happens around the full moon of the 13th in terms of how the month will unfold for your partnership. When it comes to those of you who are either single or dating casually, things will pick up after the 18th, when Venus enters your sign.  

Leo

Affirmation: “My body is sacred. I treat my body like the temple it is.”

The full moon in Capricorn of the 13th invites you to take a hard look at your routine and your habits, and start choosing a healthier lifestyle. The new moon of the 28th gives you a great opportunity to manifest new beginnings regarding health and habits. On the same day, however, you may receive unexpected news regarding your career. 

This month, you’ll be very focused on your career. On the 1st, Mars enters your tenth house of career, vocation, and public reputation, making you very proactive when it comes to building and establishing a name for yourself. If you’re currently looking for job opportunities, a date to watch out for is the 28th, when Uranus will form a conjunction with Mars. If you work in tech or want to get a foot in the door in that field, this date is particularly important. July will also be very hectic for our lionesses, independently of their relationship status. Coupled-up Leos have a great potential for a healing conversation with their long-term partners on July 2nd. For the Leos who are either single and looking or dating casually, the road is a bit more bumpy.

Try to do whatever needs to be done in this area of life before the end of the month. Jupiter, currently located in your fifth house of romance and casual relationships, will go retrograde on the 28th. Right now, it seems that suitors are knocking on your door left, right, and centre. After that date, you will experience a bit of a drought, as the universe wants you to work on yourself. The 31st does offer one last opportunity to meet someone special or consolidate a casual relationship as the Sun in your sign forms a trine with Jupiter.   

Virgo

Affirmation: “I let myself be looked after by my loved ones.”

The new moon in Leo on the 28th is a time for Virgos to circle in their calendar. It’s important that they journal their dreams around this time. This is so because they may receive divine guidance there. I know that, as a Virgo, you’re unlikely to skip your therapy appointments, but do your best not to skip them at the end of the month. The new moon gives you a valuable opportunity to manifest being freed from obstacles that are consciously in your subconscious mind. Most Virgos have experienced great health (or at least an amazing routine that keeps them above water) since Jupiter, the planet of expansion and luck, entered their sixth house.

On the 9th, Mercury in your house of friendship and community will form a square with Jupiter. You may have to face the tough reality that you can’t take care of yourself alone. We aren’t talking about doctors, but your friends and community. You can’t do everything yourself, Virgo. You’ll work yourself to death. Let your community handle some of the details. Let them look after you like you look after them. The 31st finally shines a light on that pesky obstacle in your own self that’s been keeping you unhealthy or stressed, as the Sun in the house of your subconscious mind will form a trine with Jupiter. 

It’ll be a relatively quiet month for your career. It seems the theme of this month is to look after yourself and your bonds with the people you love most. If you’re looking to get promoted or switch jobs, do so before the 18th. Venus will remain in your house of career until that date. A date to circle in your calendar regarding career is the 12th. However, read any contracts very carefully. The two days after, Venus will form a tense aspect with Neptune, the planet of lies and deception. All steps you take in your career before the 18th will be in the right direction with the important exception of forming a business partnership. Wait before making that decision – the stars are not in your favour in that regard.

It will be a hectic month in love for all Virgos. Coupled-up Virgos may receive some unexpected news from their partners on the 2nd. The 12th and 13th, as well as the 17th and 18th, are more harmonious dates to spend time together and/or patch things up. Neptune is currently located in your house of committed partnerships, and it will form a lot of tense aspects during this month. If your partner is cheating on you or not acting in your best interests, trust that the truth will be revealed. I know that, as a Virgo, you will welcome the truth with open arms, even if it hurts. Please note that this is only true for some Virgos – a lot are in solid partnerships that not even Neptune can destroy. 

For the Virgos who are looking for a partner and/or dating around, things will start to pick up on the 1st and 2nd of the month. However, beware of who you meet. Because Mars will be in a tense aspect with Pluto, you might end up meeting a rather dominant suitor. The full moon of the 13th is a great time to see what may be holding you back from finding your person. If you don’t do your inner work on time, don’t worry – your subconscious blocks regarding romance will be revealed between the 19th and 20th.   

Libra

Affirmation: “Sometimes the universe closes a window to open a door. I always look for the silver lining.”

The full moon of the 13th may cause you to move out of your house or have to do urgent home repairs and improvements. Trust that the universe is intervening in your favour, even if it may seem to be against you. Divinity wants you to have a home you love, one that is truly a safe haven for you. The new moon on the 28th may also bring good news wearing the costume of bad news. You may part ways with a friend who is no longer serving you. This is also a great day to manifest new friends if you feel you could use some. Regarding your health, the 17th and 18th are great days to schedule an appointment with your doctor. Because of certain planetary movements, you may find that diagnosis you’ve been looking for or a better form of treatment. Of course, if your problem is urgent, don’t wait to see the right healthcare professional.

Your career demands your attention in July from day 1. July 2nd is a great day for self-expression tied to your career, so update your resumé and cover letter or advocate for yourself in the workplace. However, because of the influence of Neptune, practise caution. You may accept new proposals, but do lots of research and read the fine print. If you’re unsure about what your next step should be, you will have an epiphany between the 16th and 17th when the Sun conjuncts Mercury. Perhaps it won’t be an epiphany, perhaps someone you trust will mention it in conversation. You’ll know it when you see it. The 24th and 25th are dates to watch out for if you have a business partner or associate – you may have an argument or even part ways.

When it comes to love, Libras in serious partnerships may prepare for arguments in advance. The tense dates for coupled-up Libras are the 9th, 24th, and 25th. Jupiter, currently in your house of committed partnership, goes retrograde on the 28th. This doesn’t necessarily mean bad news. It does mean you will have to do a lot of inner work to see great results with your partner in November when it goes direct. Some great dates for partnered-up Libras, where there are a lot of harmonious energies available, are the 23rd and 31st. Single Libras or Libras who are dating casually will have a mostly positive month, with the exception of the 31st.    

Scorpio

Affirmation: “I am worthy of my dream job.”

The full moon of the 13th falls in your third house of short trips, neighbours, siblings, and students if you happen to work as a teacher. Like all full moons, expect the stagnant energy to quickly fade away. You’re a Scorpio, so you see the beauty in the process. Your health will remain the same throughout July. 

Your career will start to pick up speed on the 19th. Start to put yourself out there and send resumés if you’re looking for something new. If you’re looking to move up in your current role, start conversations with decision-makers after this date. On the 22nd, you’ll start to shine in the workplace. You’ll be very magnetic as an applicant. The 23rd can be a day of great luck to finally achieve that career milestone you’ve been working towards for years. The 26th and 27th, on the other hand, are rather tense and may bring arguments with key people in your job. Try to handle your temper. The new moon of the 28th is a great day to manifest a new beginning in your career.

The 31st brings mixed energies for this area of your life as, on the one hand, your magnetism may bring you the career opportunity of a lifetime. On the other hand, Mercury, the planet of communication transiting your house of career, will form a tense aspect with Saturn. Perhaps it’s time you face the music if you haven’t been performing as well as you’d like. Coupled-up Scorpios: watch out for your anger and your need to be the dominant one. The 1st and 2nd will be rather tense days. Angry words may also be exchanged between the 26th and 27th. On the 28th, you may be in for an ugly surprise regarding your partner.

If your relationship is solid, it won’t break it apart, but you’ll both have to make an effort to solve it. Analyse your own tendencies towards self-sabotage. The 31st will be the climax of this ugly news. Single Scorpios or those who date casually will have a tough first half of the month. In the second half, starting on the 17th, Neptune – currently located in your house of romance and casual relationships – will start to form harmonious aspects with other planets.   

Sagittarius

Affirmation: “I feel my anger in healthy ways. I don’t let it run the show.”

As a Sagittarius, you’d live and die by the ideas you believe to be true. The new moon on the 28th will be a great day for you to manifest something regarding your life philosophy. If you’re a professor or teacher or if you need a visa to migrate to another country, manifest those. Your health will more or less remain the same. Mars enters your sixth house of daily habits and routines, giving you a lot of energy to finally pick up that healthy habit you’ve been considering. However, watch out for your anger during July. It can quite literally end up making you sick. It’s okay to feel it, but don’t let it consume you. 

Your finances may bring you some stress this month. Try to have some money saved, even if it’s just a little. You may suffer a financial blow between the 1st and 2nd. The full moon in Capricorn will encourage you to let go of recurring expenses that are no longer necessary or even people who end up emptying out your bank account. 

Coupled-up archers will have a relatively quiet month, whereas those of you who are single or casually dating will see more movement in this area of life. Coupled-up Sagittarius should plan a romantic date with their partner between the 12th and 13th. On the 18th, Venus, the diplomat, leaves your seventh house of commitment partnership, so some bickering may start after that. For single Sagittarius, have all the fun you can until Jupiter goes retrograde on the 28th. The 23rd and 31st are two dates to circle in your calendar to go on a blind date, put yourself out there or make things official with your casual flame.   

Capricorn

Affirmation: “I remain calm during frustrating moments.”

First, the good news regarding health and vitality: the full moon of the 13th, which happens on your sign, will give you the reset you desperately need. After that date, you will feel more energetic. Now, the not-so-great news. It’s not a bad month for health for you per se, but aspects of it may bring you frustration. The first bumps in the road take place on the 1st and 2nd. Then, there are other ones between the 18th and 20th. The new moon in Leo takes place in your eighth house of processes of transformation. The 28th is therefore a great day to manifest a new therapist who truly gets you or start a new alternative therapy to fix your mind and soul.

Your finances this month look overall great, with the exception of the 31st. However, whatever happens on the 31st regarding your finances will most likely be minor. You’re not a Capricorn for nothing, after all. Try to remain calm during that setback. July is a month with a lot of harmonious energy regarding money for you. It’s a great time to save, invest, or pick up a new side hustle.

Love will be hectic for single goats or those who are dating around. Coupled-up Capricorns will have a great time at the beginning of the month. On the 18th, Venus enters their seventh house of committed partnership, making things even better. Single Capricorns will start to see things pick up speed from the very first day of July. They should watch out for their temper or more dominant tendencies on the 1st and 2nd. You want to possess your lover, and this makes you two butt heads. The 31st will bring a surprise, but it could be positive or negative.         

Aquarius

Affirmation: “I am a wealth and health magnet.”

The full moon on the 13th will be intense. Expect bizarre and very vivid dreams. It will happen in your 12th house of the subconscious mind and the oniric world. You do love this sort of thing, though, water bearer. It will still be challenging because it may bring to the surface things you have repressed. The 2nd is a great day to expect a surge in vitality or some necessary information from your doctor. Between the 12th and the 13th, you may also expect some good news regarding your health, especially if you suffer from insomnia or anxiety. The 31st may present more of a challenging energy for your health and well-being, but you can handle it if you do your absolute best.

Regarding your finances, the first half of the month is challenging, but the energy changes completely from the 17th onwards. Money will start to flow in with less obstacles. Before that date, beware of what you say in the workplace and be wary of someone who may lead you to think your work is worth less than it actually is. After the 17th, though, enjoy the unexpected cash flow. Aquarius in serious partnerships will experience more bumps in the road than single Aquarius or Aquarius at the very beginning of their relationships. Coupled-up water bearers will start to see activity after the 19th. The 23rd is a beautiful date to plan an escapade or romantic date with that special someone.

If you need to turn over a new leaf as a couple, the new moon of the 28th is a great time to manifest as a new beginning. Single Aquarians dying to meet their soulmate can also manifest this on this date. The 31st offers a mix of energies for coupled-up Aquarians, as the Sun in their house of committed partnership will form a trine with Jupiter. This offers a unique opportunity to conceive and/or reconnect with fun as a couple. However, on the same day, an argument may take place, as Mercury, representing your partner, forms a tense aspect with Saturn, placed on your sign. For single Aquarians, the month will be mostly positive, with the 11th, 12th, and 13th as notable dates. Aquarians that may be dating casually may face an ugly, unexpected truth about a prospective partner between the 26th and 27th. This is only true for some specific Aquarians out there, though.  

Pisces

Affirmation: “I am ready to meet my soulmate.”

You may have some difficulties regarding your health at the beginning of the month, but expect things to improve after the 17th. Some factors that can reunite you with good health faster include whether you have a creative outlet, whether you listen to your inner child, and whether you feel truly ‘at home’ in your current living conditions. The full moon may push you to re-evaluate whether your group of friends is the right one for you, and even force you to part ways with some of them. I know this hurt, dear Pisces, but trust that it’s for the best.

Ever since Jupiter entered your second house of personal finances in December, you’ve been making it rain. On the 9th, a tense aspect between Mercury and Jupiter may raise up an unexpected bill. On the 28th, Jupiter goes retrograde. Money will still flow in, but not with the same potency as before. This is a great time to rethink how you perceive money, how abundant is your mentality, and perhaps start plans regarding a business or side hustle you’ve been dying to start. On the 31st, you may expect a bonus or pay raise.

Coupled-up Pisceans will experience no change whatsoever. Single Pisceans will start to see action from July 1st. If you’ve been working on yourself to become a better partner, Saturn may finally reward you with your soulmate around this month. On the 9th, between the 18th and 20th, on the 24th and 25th, the energies around romance will be rather tense for you. The rest is all absolutely positive. This is the month to put yourself out there and go on many first dates.

Astrology Can Unleash Your Potential – Here’s How

Start your soul’s journey.

Astrology has been around for two and a half millennia, and traces its roots to the Babylonian Age. This ancient craft was devised by the sages and the seers of those times to consult and strategise on behalf of rulers. Today, the worldwide collective consciousness has shifted from just spirituality to radical technology, social justice, and acceptance of the self through the rise of astrology.

On one memorable trip to New York for a women’s leadership training program, I had the strangest encounter of my life. I met with a psychic who told me something I’d never forget. At that point, I was at my lowest, both emotionally and physically, even though my life seemed perfect from the outside. I was exactly where I’d worked hard to be – at the peak of my journalistic career – and yet I wasn’t happy. When I visited the psychic, she said, “Don’t listen to the voices.” I was startled. “Voices, what voices?” I asked. She replied that I shouldn’t listen to the voices that tell me to kill myself. I had no idea that, at that moment, I’d begun the quest of my life by listening to the guidance of stars instead of those voices. 

Fast forward to six years later, I am now a certified Applied Astrologer through the Debra Silverman School. I discovered myself, my potential, possibilities, and ultimately my soul’s journey. All the clients that I work with come to me with burning questions about their lives. They find themselves confused and torn amidst the internet’s takeover of astrology. They may have their entire astrological chart on an app, but they seek deeper knowledge about the cosmic imprint of their soul.

Astrology, Then and Now

The earliest known astrological illustrations were found 20,000 years ago. Some of the most striking ones include over 600 carvings found in France, which have the same symbols for the 12 zodiac constellations that astrologers still use today. Many cultures of the time believed that planets were forces of nature or representatives of the divine that shaped the life of every individual on earth. Whatever pattern constellated in the heavens, the study of it was always conjugated and never abstract. It was considered a necessity with life-and-death implications that required understanding the divine and mystical. 

Before the advent of science, everything was connected to nature and its signs, climate, calamities, disasters, new comets, and eclipses. In the age of information, all major publications throughout the globe have a dedicated astrologer penning horoscope columns daily. The first one was published in 1930 by Sunday Express. While it was Ptolemy, an astronomer and mathematician who introduced ‘natal’ astrology, today, its sister science astronomy has split away from it, pushing many cynics to call astrology a pseudoscience. Regardless of the opposition and disbelief in the science of astronomy, questions about the millennial’s place in the universe are often comforted by astrological memes. And somehow, in this process, we feel connected to the community and end up feeling like an unique individual – a one in a billion.

Astrology, a Healing Art

Astrology as a healing art has come a long way from the Sun Sign Astrology found in newspapers and websites to a certified astrologer today, who studies a snapshot of the sky at the moment of your first breath – just like how they used to in the old times. The exact position and placements in the sky will let them have a look into the map of your soul. Just like how all psychotherapists do not work with you the same way, each astrologer looks at your chart differently.

The position of all the planets will reveal the nature of your life, almost like a neutral mirror. The map can guide you towards your true purpose. The natal chart works like an anchor for me as an astrologist, while I solidify a client’s unique qualities, challenges, possibilities to the future, as well as opportunities so that I can assist and guide them to truly live the life they were born to live.

Each planet is like a member of our counsel – almost like a spirit guide – that’s watching over us. Our lives are full of mystery and magic, and astrology as a healing art works best with time and layering of information. So, yes, grasping all there is to your life in a single session might be a far-fetched idea. Astrology is a symbolic language that appeals to both our conscious and subconscious mind.

Astrology Seeds to Sow

This healing art can speak to you when you need it most. It can actualise your destiny, and you can live out the potential of your entire being. It will illuminate the archetypes that you are living and the lessons that you are being taught. It can let you channel all energies to blend and translate into your life. Each sign within us and the planet where it plays out is the seed that we actualise and grow as we take care of it.

A story in The New York Times talked about how psychotherapists have now started learning astrology to understand their clients. Many shared that numerous clients were now using astrology as a reference point in their lives. Another article reported that venture capitalists were now investing in zodiac-focused start-ups as, according to them, astrology is having a cultural moment. I believe these factors indicate that with its rise as a constructive navigating tool for people from all walks of life, the whole debate about astrology being a pseudoscience is slowly dying out. 

Transformation through Astrology

I use Applied Astrology as a healing art almost as much as an energy healing work. I practise it as a strong starting point for each client’s work with me. The natal chart acts as a roadmap into the transformation to make each puzzle of their lives finally make sense. This healing process is not for the faint-hearted and those interested in future predictions. Applied astrology requires us to comprehend where we are in our lives and to put in work for ourselves. 

I create a sacred space for those who are committed, introspective, contemplative, and curious about moving into their lives with ultimate power. The tools of astrology – the planets, the positions and placements, the mystery of the skies – must be held in utmost respect for their power. There should be an understanding and awareness that it takes time to understand what these influencing factors are trying to communicate to us and what they are capable of in our lives.

Astrological Forecast

Your May 2022 Astrological Forecast Is Here

A game-changing eclipse is upon us.

May 2022 comes on the heels of the new moon and eclipse in Taurus. Your idea of stability and wealth may have been challenged in quite a harsh, sudden manner. We start off the month on a more cheerful note on May 1, with Venus conjunct Jupiter in Pisces. Romanticism is flying high. This is a great time to go on a first date, especially for Pisces and Virgo. 

What to Expect This Month

On May 4 and May 5, the sun is conjunct Uranus in Taurus. This is a great day when the impulse to change is heightened and highlighted. It may feel harsh for some Taureans, especially those who have a harder time with change, but trust that it’s for the best. Mercury goes retrograde on the 10th in the sign of Gemini. Beware about any actions or agreements you come to around this date, as they may need to be revisited later. Avoid big purchases and signing contracts – figurative and literal.

Around the middle of the month, on May 15 and May 16, sun in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius followed by the full moon and eclipse in Scorpio on the 16th. This continues with the tension between Taurus and the more Uranian sign of change Aquarius, this time adding Saturn to the mix. The impulse to change and innovate is still there, but it starts to be challenged by some practical matters that forces limits upon change. With the full moon and eclipse, there is release, but it can be a very chaotic and traumatic release. 

On May 17 and May 18, Mars conjunct Neptune in Pisces. This energy is there for the taking, but it can be used for good or for ill. It can be a burst of creative inspiration for many, especially Scorpio, from where great creative works can be born. It can also be a time for some people to get cheated on and conned. Be careful around this time; some very skillful conmen and people that don’t necessarily have the right intentions are out there. On May 18-20, there’s a Trine between the sun in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. This is a great day for a healing session, therapy, or shadow work. Trauma comes to the forefront in a harmonious manner to be addressed and healed.  

Finally, we end the month on May 28-30, with Mars conjunct Jupiter in Aries. We started off with quite a feminine energy that’s all about being magnetic, and we end off on a more masculine note that’s all about getting empowered and embracing the bountiful energy that’s out there for the taking.

What This Means for Your Zodiac’s Horoscope

Aries

Affirmation: “I do my best work when I listen to my intuition first.”

This month calls you to be more balanced in your approach to life and finally rewards you with a burst of energy by the end. The first conjunction between Venus and Jupiter can be challenging for you, as it encourages you to look within and trust your gut – two things that don’t come too easily for you. Around the 4th and 5th, be careful with your finances. You may have to deal with an unexpected expense or bill. The month ends on a beautiful note for you. You will have plenty of energy to complete all of your projects and then some. You feel powerful and strong.  

Taurus

Affirmation: “I can adapt to change, I can thrive with change.”

The new moon from the past month may have shaken things a bit for you, but it was just a small sample of what this month has in store for you. May will be a rollercoaster, full of thrills but also drops. The best thing you can do is embrace change. The Taureans that go with the flow and learn to see the beauty in change are the ones who will get the most enjoyment out of the month. Your love life will be hectic around the full moon and eclipse. Trust that everything is happening for your highest good. Some of you will meet your soulmate right after all of this is over. 

Gemini 

Affirmation: “I question my own beliefs so they don’t limit me.”

The transit that will affect you the most is Mercury retrograde on the 10th. You’re used to doing things a mile a minute, and it will force you to slow down and look within. Do some journaling or art. Learn how to listen to yourself speaking. You will experience big career moments, first at the beginning of the month (where you’ll feel like you have a thousand opportunities calling your name) and then by the end of the month (where you’ll be ready to take action and become unstoppable). 

Cancer

Affirmation: “Love is directed my way.”

Whether you’ve been trying to meet someone new or release your ex and finally move on, this will finally manifest with the Trine between the Sun and Pluto of the 18th to the 20th. If you’ve been in pain, healing energies will come your way. If you do end up meeting someone, it will be someone who will grow to love you deeply exactly as you are, but who will also encourage you to grow and change. 

Leo

Affirmation: “I release anything that’s bringing me down.”

The full moon in Scorpio is a great time to let go of anything in your home life that isn’t serving you anymore. Declutter your space and get rid of any items that don’t bring you joy anymore. All of that empty space will help you manifest anything you want to attract into your life later on.  

Virgo

Affirmation: “I use my words to build my reality.”

The beginning of the month is a great time for you to meet someone new or go on a first date. By contrast, mistrust anyone you meet around the 17th and the 18th, as you’ll be particularly prone to being duped by a suitor or lover. The energy around the full moon will feel intense, but you may finally drop some anxious attachments and toxic communication patterns if you learn to embrace said energy. 

Libra

Affirmation: “I go slowly and enjoy the present moment.”

You feel like your luck in love has been waning. It is not like it is a complete drought of fun and romance, but it is rare and hard to come by. By the end of the month, things will change drastically, but be patient until then. A nice partner who matches up to your ideal will appear. Take things slow until Mercury goes direct. Do not take anyone who wants to go too quickly seriously. Slow and steady wins the race. 

Scorpio

Affirmation: “Healing in my love life is just around the corner.”

If you want a brand new beginning with a current partner or to meet someone who finally lives up to your standards, pay attention to what happens around the full moon and eclipse. It will reveal something key about yourself that you’re trying to find in others instead of healing in yourself. Once you gain this insight, you will finally find the missing piece that’s been holding up your love life. 

Sagittarius

Affirmation: “I am magnetic.”

A surge of creativity is coming your way by the end of the month. You will become a magnet for all sorts of opportunities, both in love and career. However, you will have to purge your subconscious mind before this and do some serious healing to truly embrace these opportunities and avoid seeing them vanish.  

Capricorn

Affirmation: “I express myself to heal my soul.”

Self-expression will be big for you this month. Whether you’re an artist or you simply learn to be more assertive, you will make big steps in this area. You will be incredibly fertile this month – do with that information what you will! The Trine of 18th to the 20th will be a time of respite after your string of unlucky events. You will shine through making art from your pain and your trauma or simply embracing it quietly. 

Aquarius

Affirmation: “I grow stronger in adversity.”

This will be a bit of a difficult month for you. However, if you learn from the lessons that the universe throws your way, you can blossom in quite a beautiful way by the end. Mercury retrograde in particular will hit you hard. Take it easy until it goes direct next month. Refrain from changing your life in big, dramatic ways just yet. Introspect and reflect. 

Pisces

Affirmation: “I am wise and attract wealth.”

The beginning of the month is the best time for you to find love. After Mercury goes retrograde, try to avoid dating new people if you can. As Venus, the planet of valuables is exalted on your own sign and being magnified by Jupiter, this is also a great time to manifest wealth. After the 10th and especially around the 18th, however, there will be some ill-intentioned people who will notice your good heart and tendency to be the best in people and try to con you. Do not fall for it!

Lion looking at the moon

What the Full Snow Moon in Leo Means for You this February 2022

I am woman, hear me roar.

This coming week, we feel the roar of the full moon in Leo. As always, on a full moon, Lady Luna is reflecting the complete light of the sun (despite this being known as the Snow Moon in the northern hemisphere!) and no one embodies the sun and its full shining glory like the sign of the lion. 

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac and connected to creativity, self-expression and an almost childlike joy (this is why many Leos are so proud of their little cubs). Can the lion sometimes roar a little bit too loud demanding his place in the spotlight with a tendency towards vanity? Sure, but if you’re looking for a time to shine bright and embrace that energy then be sure to work with some of the rituals below to really harness the power of this full moon.  Check out where 16° of Leo falls in your chart – this is the area of life where you are at your most creative and dramatic, where you feel called to take the lead with pride!

Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius signs are feeling the changes the most this full moon. These are all signs that by their nature dislike change unless it is meaningful, so be prepared to step out of your comfort zone and embrace the changes that are starting to kick off in force this year. Remember we are more than just our sun sign, so check if your moon rising or Venus falls under any of these zodiac signs – it may explain how you are feeling!

No More Retro-Shade!

Are you feeling kind of over the amount of time we spent with Mercury and Venus in retrograde?  Many of you would’ve seen the reappearance of certain themes especially in the realm of relationships and miscommunication? Well, the good news is that the  energy is certainly picking up from now all the way until April 29th as we currently have zero – that’s correct, zero – planets in backward motion! Hurrah! I hear you cry and yes it will be great to finally feel the move of stagnancy that has been hanging around since the beginning of the year.

On this full moon, we finally have Mars and Venus meeting up together in a beautiful conjunction in the sky – a pairing of the divine feminine and masculine. If you are a Virgo or Cancer rising, this is powerful news in all things relationship and love. Certainly there will be some fire and activity. This is a great time to connect with people especially if you’ve been feeling stuck. The weather in Dubai is beautiful right now and so why not spend some time meeting up with other people, firing up ideas (this conjunction is trying to tap into revolutionary and maverick Uranus)?

Full Moon Mantras

Below are some suggested mantras to incorporate into your full moon rituals in order for you to make the most of this energy surge. If you have crystals, then the full moon is a wonderful time to clean them in some water and Himalayan salt and charge them under the moonlight to really activate their power. Remember: on full moons, we release what has been highlighted over the past month. We can do this through celebration, reflection, or possibly even through an emotional outburst. Allow whatever comes up to ensure you feel the power of each of these mantras.

Aries & Libra

Leo is all about courage, and your ritual for this full moon is about embracing barriers at work and knowing that you are enough when you learn to take the lead as well as collaborate. It is asking if you find more balance between your professional and private life.

Full Moon Mantra: I am enough, and I attract balance when I choose myself.

Taurus & Scorpio

The people in your life can be incredibly important in helping you find self-expression and joy as well as a sense of  peace. Just remember to let them in! This can also be a great moment to understand who needs to take more of a leading role in your life and who may be draining your light. Remember to stay in alignment with those who allow you to shine in your most authentic way.

Full Moon Mantra: I attract people who embrace my strengths and support me in my challenges.

Gemini & Sagittarius

This year is bringing plenty of spiritual insights and situations – remember there are no such thing as coincidences! It is important you find moments and rituals within your busy day to embrace the deeper wisdom available to you. This full moon is asking you to tap into your intuition, both in your body and in your soul, and you ask yourself, “Where am I seeking healing?”

Full Moon Mantra: I am healing every day in every way and there is nothing to fear.

Cancer & Capricorn 

Sometimes, showing up fully as yourself makes you feel indulgent or egotistical, but the Leo aspect of this moon is positively pushing you to be daring and take the limelight. Whether it’s in your one-on-one relationships or through the people you interact with every day, ask yourself if there is a deeper more authentic you wanting to come through.

Full Moon Mantra: I commit to being authentically and unashamedly me in all aspects of life.

Leo & Aquarius

Sometimes, we are called to splurge and other times, we are called to save – but this full moon is illuminating where you put your money, time, focus, and values of what is important to you. Money is energy just like everything else; hold it too tight and it does not flourish, be foolhardy with it and abundance flows away from you. This full moon, ask yourself where do you feel the most and least abundant in life.

Full Moon Mantra: I am attracting abundance every day and I am worthy of it all.

Virgo & Pisces

Now that Mercury is out of retrograde, stop thinking about how you can communicate your needs most clearly. This full moon will be related to mindset and learning, so you may find opportunities to express yourself in big or small ways – release what needs to be said and you may find your words have true power.

Full Moon Mantra: I express myself with courage and clarity to claim what is already mine.

What January 2022’s Full Moon in Cancer Means For You

I can’t wait till February. *sigh*

We have the first full moon of 2022 today, January 18. Here, Lady Luna will be in her home sign of Cancer, offering nurturing maternal water energy that is associated with the crab zodiac. At first, the deep sensitivity of Cancer may seem like a passive way to begin the year. However, along with the Aries, Libra, and Capricorn zodiac signs, Cancer is a cardinal sign and all about active love and care, putting nurturing tendencies into action. Cancer asks us, “How can I live a more intuitive life?” and “How can the love I feel be put into active service for the world?”

Perhaps you express love through acts of service, or perhaps you know your physical touch has a loving effect on others? One of the best ways to put the emotion of this full moon into positive and intentional action is to lean into your own personal love language. Continue reading for some impactful full moon mantras for your sun sign! By now, you’ve made your New Year’s resolutions and perhaps even set intentions at the new moon on January 2, so why does it still feel like the momentum we’ve been expecting is yet to show up?

Consider this your permission slip to hold fire. This year, we are starting off slowly with a strong intention to come into alignment. Collectively, we’ve been through a huge amount in 2021 and, whilst 2022 is going to bring disruptive and revolutionary changes later this year, we are currently being gifted with a moment to reorient ourselves and get ready. 

Zodiac Signs

Mercury and Venus Retrograde

There is a very strong likelihood that this full moon will bring to light resolutions – whether you made them consciously or not – that no longer feel in tune with the energy you are bringing into this year. So, when doing the full moon ritual suggested below, be open to really see what needs fine-tuning. Perhaps you have set some career goals, but in this January downtime, you realise you would like to explore another area? You may be craving or have already started a new health routine? Is it making you feel nourished and good?

This pause is welcome as Mercury stationed retrograde alongside Venus this past weekend for the first of four retrogrades that will occur this year. Venus is the planet of love and value, and has been regressing since December. From now until February 3 (when they start to station direct again – hurrah!), we are being asked to take a deep look at communication, relationships, dialogue, and what areas we put our personal value in.

One question you may want to ask yourself whether you are single or not is, “What is important to me in relationships?” Now is a brilliant time to assess whether you are articulating your needs either verbally or energetically. This full moon is deeply sensitive and brings heightened emotions around January 18. If you are beating yourself up for not making progress, then see if you can lean into retrograde energy for insights. The new moon in Aquarius in February will bring about change before you know it!

Full Moon in Cancer

Cancer Full Moon ‘Love Language’ Theme for Your Zodiac Sign 

Do check both your Sun and Moon signs for your full moon mantra for this week.

Aries/Leo/Sagittarius – Quality Time

The key question for our Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius signs is: Have you been attending to yourself enough? We look to your leadership when it comes to stepping into what makes you feel alive. If you are feeling neglected or tense, the invitation is to look at where you can find some joy. What about planning a holiday? Or looking into a course or passion where you can connect with others?

Full Moon Mantra: “I release negativity and step fully into what brings me joy.”

Taurus/Virgo/Capricorn – Physical Touch

Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are Earth signs and often seen as beacons of strength, propping everybody else up and offering practical advice on call. However, during times of increased isolation, feelings of disconnect can build up. More than anyone, you experience the world through your senses. Why not treat yourself to a massage or a makeover? If all else fails, find someone you really feel you can be at home with and give them a huge hug. They may just need it, too.

Full Moon Mantra: “I release the need for control. I have an ocean of abundant resources around me.”

Gemini/Libra/Aquarius – Words of Affirmation

For Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius signs, the main message this full moon is to be open to inspiration from the cosmos. Maybe you love to write? Perhaps you are more of a TikTok-type communicator? Either way, your ideas and the way you express them have power over the people around you, so seek out opportunities to connect with people and share your ideas – whether online or in-person!

Full Moon Mantra: “I release the old narratives that no longer serve me. I embrace all new concepts life is showing me.”

Cancer/Pisces/Scorpio – Receiving Gifts

This full moon is wonderful for you! Yes, it’s highly sensitive and can leave you feeling the vulnerability you often try to hide – but therein lies the treasure. Unclear on what your next steps are? Feeling scared, but also excited for the changes that are coming? Meditate under the light of Lady Luna and ask to receive wisdom. Your innate intuition is activated right now!

Full Moon Mantra: “I release barriers between myself and my dreams. I am powerful and beautiful beyond measure.”

What New Moon in Sagittarius Means for You

Ready for a total solar eclipse?

This weekend on Saturday – December 4 at 11:42 Gulf Standard Time to be exact – we will have a total eclipse of the new moon in Sagittarius. The new moon is the start of each monthly moon cycle, and solar eclipses unleash the power of new beginnings into overdrive! You may already feel the energy of change, even a sense of impatience for an awaited shift in circumstances (even if you haven’t been clear on what you want them to be). A solar eclipse is a powerful time to work with our physical world and personal life circumstances. This is a time to really ask, “Is this the direction I want to continue travelling in?” Keep reading to learn more about the area of life that will come into focus for your sun and rising sign!

Sagi Season

Sagittarius is the last of the fire signs on the zodiac wheel, and it rules the liver and thighs. As an archetype, the sign represents the philosopher or teacher, and the associated themes are all about freedom, truth, and a deep sense of justice. The Sagittarius spirit seeks new levels of wisdom and a desire to test its boundaries – isn’t it always your Sagi friend who is excited for the next vacation? Just don’t ask her to plan it!

For the next three weeks, you have an invitation to explore the following question: What is MY truth? You can also see if you can tap into your inner guru to guide you into your plans for 2022. The sign of the archer can sometimes fall into dogmatic thinking and be a stickler for a single (i.e. their) truth. Watch out for any righteous arguments or binary thinking. Perhaps you can be open to other perspectives on this path of growth?

Neptune: The Fog Finally Lifts

This week, Neptune – the spiritual ruler of Pisces – stations directly. Neptune has strong symbolism of water and emotion, representing both your collective illusions and spiritual nature. For the last five months, you may well have felt a lack of clarity or ‘mental fog’ around you – particularly Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces – but you may find things becoming clearer again now that Neptune stations directly. The time is right to come out of self-imposed solitude.

Solar Eclipse by Sign

To complement your new moon intentions this weekend, check both your sun and rising sign to see what area of your life is ripe for a fresh start.

Aries

Self-expression is not selfish! In fact, it’s the most giving and inspiring thing you can do. Where can you allow some fun and romance in your life? You deserve it after all – there is a child waiting to put down some of that armour and come out to play!

Taurus

Our habits define us, right? If you are the sum of what you do every day, get honest: how does that look? Desire for routines and practices that are small, but commitments over time is the way to work this eclipse energy!

Gemini

This eclipse is falling in the area of life that governs long-term relationships. Anywhere you need a change-up (single or married) is now up for review. No one communicates like you, so this is an invitation for a discussion with your significant other or potential partner – you have to start somewhere.

Cancer

With the moon as your ruler so prominent, you are particularly sensitive to the energies at this time. The invitation is simple and possibly a little bit uncomfortable, but you need to see where you are lacking a feeling of intimacy with the people in your life. People want to invest in you. You just need to be open to the goodness that this can bring.

Leo

After a year of restrictions, there is a fire burning within you to explore both geographically and your own desires. Be open to new happenings that will broaden your mind in a way you haven’t felt before this year.

Virgo

Becoming the culmination of who we are is now always loud and showy through the sacred acts of service and support to others. You are stepping into a more visible role now for your talent in doing exactly this. Don’t be afraid to enjoy it – and ask for a pay rise?

Libra

More than ever, the world needs your natural diplomacy and sense of idealism, particularly when working with large groups (perhaps even embarking on some collective healing). You are also being invited to see who you allow into your very wide social circle and whether everybody there warrants access to you.

Scorpio

Going deep and seeking out some quiet during this new moon would not be a bad thing – walks on the beach or meditation (in whatever way you find peace) will help you still that conscious mind and find answers from within yourself. No need to listen to other people right now. You got this!

Sagittarius

This one feels personal to you, of course. You’re not afraid of change. This eclipse is asking you to commit to that change now as the first step. How do YOU come across to the world versus how do you want to be received? In your authenticity, right? So, it’s time for a fresh start with a fresh face to the world! 

Capricorn

Money on your mind, Capricorn? Hehe. It goes deeper than that – money is reflective of our own value systems and this new moon is asking you to define where you draw value from and HOW you demonstrate it to others. People often don’t know this about you, but you actually want your life’s work to mean something beyond the material, so why not take that step?

Aquarius

Get curious now. Really curious. What’s the word on the street? Whatever people are saying that is getting you fired up is an invitation for you to move away from polarity and embrace the many ways the world can be viewed. If you feel like a new hobby or connecting with friends (old and new), you might be surprised how good that feels.

Pisces

It’s never easy having to go back to our emotional roots, and you might feel your sensitivity being triggered by the holiday period. That’s okay. What boundaries are you putting down for the coming year? Just make sure it’s a permeable membrane that allows for incoming love.

Your Guide to Surviving November’s Full Moon Eclipse

Feel the earth shift under your feet.

This coming Thursday, November 19, the so-called Beaver Moon will be at its fullest and brightest in the night sky. Full moons always come with revelations and activation, and we often struggle to sleep or contain our emotions during this time of the month. It is no coincidence that full moons are associated with madness – the word ‘lunatic’ is directly derived from lunar, the Latin word for moon. The build-up of emotion on a full moon is the cosmos’ wonderful way of pushing us to release what no longer serves and celebrate all that we have worked for in the last month!

Lunar Eclipse – Beginnings and Endings

In my previous post, I talked about the start of the eclipse season in early November, which will take us up to the end of the year. The next two months will be a powerful time of change as eclipses signify beginnings and endings. This month’s full moon in Taurus is all about closing out what we have done in 2021. So, whether you want to say “good riddance” (and you wouldn’t be the only one!) or reflect on the good times, this is the week to work on releasing thoughts, inner narratives, and attitudes that you do not want to carry forward into 2022.

Eclipse energy is sudden and strong. Even if we feel like we’re not ready for the changes it brings, this energy can help us to see this change as a shift in what the highest part of you is truly craving. Lunar eclipses are also connected with shocking or surprising revelations, so it is important that we remain out of ‘reactionary mode’ as much as possible.

What the Taurus Full Moon Means for Your Zodiac Sign

Full moons mark an emotionally tense time for all. A lunar eclipse adds fuel to the fire, initiating change and disruptions to our day-to-day lives. But there’s no need to panic – these changes don’t have to be bad or scary. Continue reading to understand the impact of this Taurus full moon on your zodiac sign and learn how to navigate what’s coming your way.

Aries & Libra

This Beaver Moon represents activation and maybe some discomfort for you. Perhaps you’re feeling like you want to say something, but can’t relate to those around you? Be careful with your words – repercussions of what we say can linger long after the feelings that propelled us to say it has passed. The best use of your drive and courage is in uniting people. If you feel like sitting this out and finding some solitude at this eclipse, consider this your permission slip to put yourself first and do exactly that.

Taurus & Scorpio

With the sun in Scorpio (how we shine) and the moon in Taurus (our deeper desires), this is a very personal-feeling moon. Your strength lies in your sheer resilience through any change, especially when the waters underneath us are changing direction constantly. Your estimation of your own worth is far more important than the validation from others right now. If you find yourself measuring value in terms of how your work, ideas, or plans are perceived, then this moon will highlight that in some way. Take the lesson and make the shift!

Gemini & Sagittarius

This eclipse energy is happening super strongly for you, transforming your natural ability to absorb and imbibe the many different possibilities opening to you. Are you feeling a call to dive into what feels truthful right now? Any areas of your life where you are anything but your authentic self will be highlighted in the coming weeks, so be sure to set some boundaries and get ready to step into a new ‘destined’ version of your fullness.

Cancer & Capricorn 

Venus – the planet of love, money, and harmony – remains in retrograde until March 2022 and this will impact you the most! Mercury in retrograde has become super popular for its association with matters going a bit haywire, particularly related to e-mails, online dating, and generally getting our wires crossed. But did you know you are far more likely to run into an ex during Venus in retrograde? Venus is all about value and, when she’s in retrograde motion, this plays out in strange ways. For example, if you meet somebody right now or go for a job interview, first impressions may be different than what they would usually be. In spite of your forthright nature, you are being asked to see the slow burn potential of investments (love and finance) and the merits of building a foundation over time.

Leo & Aquarius

This lunar eclipse is the perfect time to bring our attention to where we might be blocking the transformation that we want to make within ourselves. This is such a powerful time to deal with emotional matters as we cannot shift negative thoughts and beliefs if we do not choose to explore them. You really don’t like being caught off guard, so why not step into being a true co-creator of change? This is the definitive time to call in all that you may have been dragging your feet on!

Virgo & Pisces

Remember the old saying, ‘patience is a virtue’? Well, this is super highlighted during this full moon, inviting you to take your time and smell the roses. In making the most of your adaptability, remember to have faith in your spiritual side and pay attention to what inspires you. This is not the time for big moves, but to surrender to the call of your desires and creativity.

Suggested Full Moon Ritual and Journal Prompts

Take a walk in nature – somewhere that feels good. Notice your feet on the earth/water as you go. Before journaling/releasing, find a spot where you can sit for at least five minutes connecting to exactly where you are. Reflect on these prompts:

  • Where in my life am I placing value on things that no longer resonate? 
  • What within me needs to be let go? What no longer serves me?
  • Where or with whom do I find a sense of grounding?
  • Where do I feel a sense of abundance in my life and where do I feel a sense of ‘not enough’?

Here’s What to Expect This Scorpio Season

Where can you transform your power?

Scorpio season is now officially upon us and, on November 4, we have a beautiful new moon in this deep water sign. For those who may not know, the ‘new’ moon is the three days of the month when the moon sits directly between the sun and the earth, and marks the beginning of the monthly lunar cycle. 

Setting Intentions

If you take a moment to look outside at the night sky on November 4, you will see there is no light coming from the moon in its first stage. It is this dark night sky of the new moon that symbolises empty space, like a blank canvas ready for us to create anew each month. You can see why new moons are all about setting intentions, and right now – in the deep, still waters of Scorpio – there is no better time to start feeling the changes you want to make in your life.  Scorpio asks us to break out of patterns, to move past stagnation, and embrace transformation from the outside in. If you know any Scorpios, they are notoriously intense and often secretive, but have such resilience, especially when it comes to diving into the shadow and bringing forth that which needs to see the light. 

It is no coincidence that many cultures celebrate Halloween (or ‘Samhain’, its pagan roots) and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) at this time. These festivals are all to do with the ‘thinning of the veil’ between life and death and linking in with our ancestral lines – themes that Scorpio feels at home with. This new moon is particularly potent for the zodiac signs of Scorpio, Aquarius, Taurus, and Leo. It would be worthwhile for these signs to try to resist the urge to remain stubbornly in ideas and habits that no longer serve them. When we change our thoughts, we change our choices. When we change our choices, we are open to things that we couldn’t have dreamed possible before.

If you know your birth chart, see where 12 degrees of Scorpio fall in your chart. This is the area of life where you tend to dive deep and where you will feel a calling towards transformation right now. With the new moon opposing Uranus – the planet of shock and revelation – it can feel like we are being ‘knocked off our perch’ when in fact this is exactly where you can discover your power!

Total Eclipse of Our Hearts

Moving into November, we find ourselves in the start of a powerful eclipse season. First, we have a lunar eclipse on November 19 followed by a solar eclipse on December 4. Eclipses are all about change rapid, fast-moving energy that signals endings and beginnings. There will inevitably be shifts in one or more areas of your life. Now is the time to have a think about the intentions you are setting and how you will make the most of these changes.

In this two-week double-eclipse period, I encourage you to remain a quiet observer as much as possible. This is a time for reflection and to really think about the direction you want to steer yourself towards before committing. Aries and Libra especially should watch their words, especially leading up to November 17 – there is likely lots of crackling tension, but remember to think before you act. You may not know the whole truth right now. The moon reminds us that we are always in a process of change and even painful endings precede new beginnings. Why not imbibe that deep, intuitive Scorpio energy this new moon and dare to stand as the most powerful, magical version of yourself?
