Boom - Eclipse season is here again, giving us a big push into that next cycle!
Just as new moons are linked to beginnings and full moons are tied to culminations, eclipses serve as celestial checkpoints. An eclipse is a high-octane occurrence that helps illuminate our karmic path, but just as these cosmic events can be visually striking, eclipses can be a bit dramatic.
This solar eclipse falls in the water sign Cancer, so our thoughts will linger around emotional connections, family and our domestic life in general. Needs and wants when it comes to comfort and security will also rush to the surface, in addition to how we care for ourselves and others.
The moon is very comfortable in Cancer, because this is the sign she rules, and we are likely to feel more sentimental or moody than usual around the time of this eclipse. Emotions may swell up from deep inner levels, breaking through the surface of an otherwise calm sea. We can become deeply nostalgic, or feel a profound longing, especially if our lives are not currently providing the kind of nurturing and support we need to thrive.
Some questions asked around this lunar event:
This is a glorious time for new beginnings both spiritually, emotionally and physically, and remember; 'The seeds we sow during the solar eclipse will bear fruit at next the lunar eclipse'.

The Solstice marks a turning point, a shift in our manifested and unseen realities, and is the bringer of a heightened awareness in nature and consciousness. Most cultures of the Northern Hemisphere mark Midsummer in some ritualized manner, and in ancient times, the Summer Solstice was a fire-festival of great importance, which ritually honored the sun.
The law of attraction and any sorts of magic is well used today, perhaps using affirmation to draw the things you seek into your life. This is also a time for reflection and to turn the page, so look back on the time at the Winter Solstice. Where were you then in your life? What has happened, month by month, since then? Look at all areas of your life; Relationships, family, work, social life - Was it a time of growth, establishment or was it a time when you released something?
Make a ritual for yourself. First, whatever you don't want to take with you into next cycle, be it feelings, behaviors, people or situations, then write it down on a piece of paper and burn it. Next, light a candle for the things you WANT in your life, write it down and save it somewhere hidden.
This is a time when the Cosmos is holding and supporting us, when we’re allowed to release anything, we’ve been keeping in. Magic comes when we surrender into trust. So leave it to the Universe, try not stick your nose into it during the process, and wonders will unfold when and where you least expect.
Spark your inspiration and Happy Summer Solstice and Midsummer!

Today's lunar event occurs in the fun and highly optimistic sign of Sagittarius, where adventure and inspiration are key elements. Sagittarius is very much like the Indiana Jones of the Zodiac, exploring and expanding not only the physical boundaries but travel easily in their minds as well. Nothing is boring about these people and this full moon brings all that to light - Where is your fun?
When the moon travels through the realm of Sagittarius, we feel strongly about truth and meaning, and to speak up for those beliefs. With the many conflict of beliefs and religion in our World it might be easy to simply follow the strongest voice, or in this time and age - the one with the most Instagram friendly picture.
Media feeds us with half-truths and whole-delusion, depending on us being passive and uncritical. This full moon is that beacon of your own truth, to analyze the stream of illusions and to see whether is resonates with your core wisdom or not.
Full moons mark times of something having reached its peak, its climax, its full potential. When Sagittarius holds the key it's all about - Investigate and dare to stand out!
We are in the midst of a SHIFT, it is happening globally and personally like a RESET or a RE-WIRING of our consciousness. Wherever the wind blows your sails, you are encouraged by this full moon to surrender, act and allow it to lead the way.

Unplug and enjoy the silence!
How do you travel through life? Do you resist, over-think or do you allow life its ebb and flow? The moon in Gemini travels with ease, manifesting herself by a need for change and spontaneity.
We live in a world bombarding us with news, advice and noise, always seeking our attention to act or do "something". But what is your soul telling you? Our spirit team talks with great concern about how humanity has gone deaf, and by that, the veil of illusions falls over us easily. Geminis or not, humans have a need to communicate and connect, and there's nothing wrong with it. But could you find the same fulfillment in your own presence and silent space? And do you really investigate it?
Harmony of thinking and feeling is important, and this new moon will highlight our ability to sense all different aspects of life, the highs and lows and especially how we meet them. Every sign is a different aspect of the human condition, and Gemini teaches us about the duality that is present in all things.
Tips to handle the Gemini new moon:
Geminis overactive minds have a tendency to worry, therefor it can be wise to take a break from your own psyche today. Slow down, don't over analyzing things. Seek the information that can move you over the thresholds that hold the most meaning for you.
