By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Greetings artists, dreamers and moon people, we are entering the first “Water” New Moon of Summer on Friday June 23, 2017, 7:30 pm (pdt) in the sign of Cancer at 2° degrees. Summer Solstice week marks the next three moons of the summer season, the first moon of summer sets the new beginning, the second moon of summer is the fullness and the final moon is the wisdom stage.

This is a very powerful Cancer moon (just like last year), be very mindful of your words to match the complimentary actions, otherwise disconnected actions will cause problems. This is because Saturn will be watching our every move, we should speak less randomly this moon, replacing this with more attention and awareness, especially around family issues. Say what you mean and follow through with real action or don’t say it at all. I say this because…

New Moon in Cancer

The Moon is hiding within the Light of the Sun…a holographic lover in the sky!  The New Moon in Cancer is the Moody Moon…and is all about feeling! It can be like a day at the beach with loved ones.  It can be like a crab hiding beneath a rock needing its space.  Cancer the Crab can be very sensitive and can get a little crabby if the heat is on too strong.  Remember that the shell of a crab is tough on the outside but very soft on the inside.  Being a Water Sign, we can easily be washed away by the tide of strong emotion .  Moon and Mood are synonymous and come and go like the tides.  Sometimes we can feel dark and empty like the New Moon…Sometimes we can feel light and fulfilled like the Full Moon.  Our…

“Do you wish to free yourself of mental and emotional knots and become one with the Tao? If so, there are two paths available to you. The first is the path of acceptance. Affirm everyone and everything. Freely extend your goodwill and virtue in every direction, regardless of circumstances. Embrace all things as part of the Harmonious Oneness, and then you will begin to perceive it. The second path is that of denial. Recognize that everything you see and think is a falsehood, an illusion, a veil over the truth. Peel all the veils away, and you will arrive at the Oneness. Though these paths are entirely different, they will deliver you to the same place: spontaneous awareness of the Great Oneness. Once you arrive there, remember: it isn’t necessary to struggle to maintain unity with it. All you have to do is participate in it.”

~ Lao Tzu

All your words, thoughts and actions are going in many directions. If you say something kind, your kind words go in many directions, and you yourself go with them. We are transforming and continuing in a different form at any moment.

Tarot Contemplation – The Emperor

The Emperor is blessed with the skills to successfully lead others. He can turn chaos into order and provide structure to that which is unbound. He is quick of mind and confident in his power and right to rule, and does so in a just manner. Although stern by nature, he truly is the ultimate father figure. He will provide as needed, teach those with unanswered questions, protect the vulnerable, set and maintain boundaries. His perfect world runs on schedule and is free of any disturbances. What the Emperor must be wary of is setting boundaries and rules where none are needed. If he isn’t careful not to over use his powers he may well become a tyrant.
