TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: June Super New Moon 2017”

cancer-super-new-moon-june

The June Super New Moon falls on the 24th in the watery, intuitive and nurturing sign of Cancer.

The Moon feels at home in the sign of Cancer, which gives this Super New Moon a calming, restorative and peaceful effect, however there are other energies playing beneath the surface as well.

This Super New Moon is closely linked to the May 25th Super New Moon. Although June’s Super New Moon is not as strong, these two lunar cycles are working as part of a team.

Having two Super New Moons back to back indicates amazing change, transformation and new beginnings.

It is likely between May and June that your life may have taken on a different feel or tone energetically. Perhaps you are even feeling inspired to start something new or begin a new chapter of your life.

This Cancerian Super New Moon will also be stirring emotions that occurred back in May and may even bring more clarity. Any unfinished business may also be resolved, or you may just be feeling a lot clearer on your path ahead.

June’s Super New Moon will feel a lot softer than May’s and will have a calming and nourishing effect. In fact, spending time with family, relaxing and taking things slow is definitely going to feel easy under this lunar influence.

The one thing to be mindful of under June’s New Moon, is getting too caught up in overthinking or over analyzing things. When we get caught up in the thoughts of our mind it can easily lead to feelings of stress and anxiety.

If you find this happening, try to quiet your mind and focus on following your heart instead. This will not only help to reduce any feelings of anxiousness but it will also align you with your highest self.

June’s Super New Moon is also going to be encouraging you to express any deeper, hidden emotions and to speak up if you have something to share.

In fact, if you have been suppressing thoughts and feelings about someone or something, this New Moon may just give you the courage to finally take action.

Emotions may also run high around the time of the Super New Moon and your energy levels may feel all over the place. If this occurs, try to focus on finding your stillness and being gentle with yourself.

Kindness is always a good remedy too, so practice being kind to others and kind to yourself. Give yourself permission to take some time out and to recharge your batteries if you need to.

Listen and trust in the wisdom of your heart on this Super New Moon, as it will surely be guiding you in the right direction.

The June Solstice also falls just days before the Super New Moon. This combination of Solar and Lunar energy is going to amplify the feeling of new beginnings and will be encouraging us to tackle life a little differently.

It is time to make some changes and it is time to go after your highest dreams and wishes. It is time to take a leap of faith and trust in the calling of your heart.

The potent combination of the Solstice and the Super New Moon will be guiding us all to much higher places and also preparing us for the final eclipse cycle of 2017.

The year is halfway done so if you are not where you want to be, now is the time to move gently, swiftly and with courage. Keep following your heart and you will always be moving in the right direction.

TANAAZ “(Forever Conscious): “The Cosmic Energy of the June Solstice 2017”

cosmic-solstice-2017

The June Solstice falls on the 20th-21st, marking the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere.

In the Northern Hemisphere, the June Solstice represents the peak of the year and the point of highest energy. The Summer Solstice is a time of light, masculinity and outward expansion.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the June solstice represents the lowest point of energy for the year. The Winter Solstice is a time of darkness, femininity and inward expansion.

No matter where you live, you can feel the energy of the Solstice by observing Mother Nature.

In the North the days are sunny, the sky is blue and nature is very busy. In the South, the days are cold and grey and nature is mostly resting.

Mother Earth pretty much sums up the energy that is around us at this point in the year and where we should be focusing our energies.

Those living in the Northern Hemisphere are being blessed with high energy and the desire to go out and do things, whereas those in the Southern Hemisphere are being blessed with a lower energy that is better used for rest and reflection.

Even though there are differences in the energy of the Solstice, the planetary or cosmic energy is the same no matter where you live.

In the sky, the planets are gearing up for the Super New Moon which falls on the 23-24th of June. This Super New Moon is part of a longer cycle that started back in May and will help to crystallise things and bring about a fresh new beginning.

This energy, along with the Solstice is going to be guiding all of us to start thinking about our life in a new way.

We are going to be guided to assess and review our thoughts, words and actions, and to make adjustments that reflect the life that we wish to lead.

The cosmic energy around the Solstice and leading up to the New Moon holds an intense energy, almost like the heavens are beaming down on us and lighting up areas of our lives that need our attention.

We are all going to be called to step into our fullest potential and begin aligning with our purpose and our highest path.

Our purpose on this Earth is to be true to ourselves and to follow the calling of our hearts, although this can seem tricky at times, the more we stay true to who we are, the easier this journey will unfold.

The Solstice energy is going to be beckoning us to welcome in the new and to celebrate why we are here and what mission our soul has come to serve.

This is an excellent time to revaluate your life and to go after any goals, dreams or wishes that have been on your mind.

The time also has come to take a leap of faith and start putting your plans into action. Don’t be afraid, the time to start is now.

In the Northern Hemisphere the time is perfect to reach out to others, collaborate and put your ideas out into the world for other people to see.

In the Southern Hemisphere, the time is perfect to brainstorm, make notes and channel your creativity to come up with solutions, strategies and new ideas.

We have all reached the point in the year where it is time to get out of our comfort zones, rise up and put plans into action. It is time to build bigger dreams, have higher ambitions and to find more and more joy.

In fact, if you don’t know where to start with all of this energy, start by following your joy and the rest will fall into place.

Life is strange sometimes, but it is helpful to remember that aside from all the soul lessons and growth, we are simply here to have fun.

If you do nothing else for the rest of the year, just focus on using the cosmic energy of the Solstice to bring in as much joy into your life as you can.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: June Full Moon 2017”

Full Moon In Sagittarius.jpg

The June Full Moon falls on the 9th in the fire sign of Sagittarius, bringing intensity, transformation and optimism.

Sagittarius energy is wise and expansive. Whenever the Full Moon is in Sagittarius it amplifies our thoughts and feelings and brings more information to the surface.

It’s almost like this Full Moon is going to give us a magnifying glass so we can see in greater detail what is working and not working in our lives.

After this Full Moon, there is going to be a lot more clarity about what changes or adjustments need to be made and consequently there will be a peace that will follow.

The June Full Moon has an intense energy due to the presence of the planet Saturn, which is also currently touring the sign of Sagittarius.

Saturn is like the stern teacher of the cosmos and is always ensuring that we have done our homework and understood the karmic lessons that we have been sent to learn.

The Moon and Saturn will be working together to deliver any karmic messages and healing that we need in order to walk our highest path.

There is a transition or a shift that we all need to make in 2017 in order to align with our highest path and these two cosmic forces will be helping us all to achieve this.

2017 is a year of new beginnings and as we reach the midway point of the year, things are going to be speeding up to help us get started on this new chapter of our lives.

June’s Full Moon also falls between two Super New Moons, which means that endings are also likely to occur.

Full Moons often signify a time of completion and there may be something you are wrapping up or completing in your own life so you can start fresh.

 

The power of the upcoming Super New Moon later in the month will help you to know the right direction moving forward, but in the meantime it is important to focus on completion.

We have all worked so hard to achieve our goals over the last few months and this Full Moon is also a cause to celebrate and to honor all that we have been through.

Because Saturn is involved in this Full Moon, there is also going to be a need for us to really understand the karmic lessons at play so we can move on and move forward.

Whatever stirs for you around this Full Moon, know that it is part of your karmic journey and part of what your soul has come here to learn.

We are all here on a temporary journey of joy and growth, and it is important for all of us to keep finding the joy as we grow and evolve.

This Full Moon has a mixed energy, on one hand it is guiding us to go through some intense karmic lessons so we can heal and keep evolving on a spiritual level, but on the other hand it is also very optimistic and healing.

The June Full Moon is not just about delivering karmic lessons, but rather it is about delivering us peace and understanding so we can see the higher benefit of the lesson.

While the June Full Moon will be guiding us to shift and transform so we can start a new beginning, it will also be filling our lives with positive, expansive and optimistic energy.

The June Full Moon is potent, yet loving and will be there to guide you through the next few weeks so you can clear the past and welcome in a bright new future.

The trick with navigating this Full Moon is to focus on finding the joy and keeping and open mind. The more you can view things from an optimistic and open point of view, the easier it is going to be to understand what you have come to learn.

While life is about learning and evolving it is also about finding the joy, as the poet Hafiz says- “stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive.”

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: May Super New Moon 2017”

may-super-new-moon

The potent Super New Moon falls in the air sign of Gemini on May 25th, 2017.

This Super New Moon is going to bring the start of a new cycle, however before this new energy can emerge, the old has to be cleared.

The old energy we are clearing this time around, comes from the events that stirred around the Scorpio Full Moon earlier in the month.

This was an intense Full Moon that likely brought things to the surface that needed to be cleared for some time.

Even though this Full Moon was only a few weeks ago, it is likely that it also brought things to the surface from way back in August 2016.

Perhaps if you look back on your life from that time period till now, you will see just how your journey has unfolded and how themes may have returned in order to be cleared or worked through once and for all.

New Moons and Full Moons always represent the start and end of a cycle, but often their impact lingers for months or even years. This is especially true when we have a Super Moon or an Eclipse.

This year, the Super New Moon in May will also be followed by another Super New Moon in June. This double hit of strong lunar energy means that things over the next few weeks may feel intense.

The Moon is responsible for our deeper emotions and feelings. The Moon rules over the unseen worlds and can bring whatever is hiding in our subconscious mind to the surface.

This can be confronting at times and can also challenge us to really make changes on the deepest of levels. The Moon also challenges us to pay attention to our intuition and the more energetic or spiritual sides of life.

As the Super New Moon falls in Gemini, it will be guiding us to focus on our thoughts and how we have been communicating to ourselves, to others and to the world.

Gemini energy is very “thought” driven and often there are times where we all experience our thoughts running away from us.

It is important to understand that our thoughts don’t really belong to us. In a way, our thoughts are like a stream that floats above us, and the thoughts we gravitate towards are the ones that are in alignment with the vibration we are emitting.

Your thoughts are not who you are. You are in fact, the observer of your thoughts but when you blur those lines and identify as your thoughts, that is when suffering can occur.

The Universe doesn’t cause our suffering, we do, our thoughts do. Events come and go, but it’s the thoughts we hold onto that cause us to suffer so much more.

We stress, we worry, we become fearful, and very soon we feel mentally, emotionally and even physically sick.

This New Moon is going to be challenging us to view our thoughts differently.

This Gemini energy is going to be guiding us to remember that we are simply the observer of our thoughts and that our thoughts don’t have to define us.

We may also find comfort in the fact that the more positive and harmonious we can make our thoughts, the more likely we are to feel better.

We don’t need to engage with all thoughts that come in, but we can open our mind to welcoming in positive and loving thoughts, for no other reason other than to feel good.

In fact, this is the super power that we all have- we are all in charge of choosing our thoughts, and what we choose can have a huge impact on how we view our lives.

This Gemini Super Moon is definitely going to be playing with our minds and encouraging us to review and assess the state of our mental activity and our thought processes.

When you can master your thoughts, that is when you will be able to master your life! So use this New Moon as an opportunity to reprogram the way you think.

The energy of this Super New Moon may feel intense, but know that the more you can keep your mind clear and positive, the easier it is going to be to navigate through.

The May Super New Moon energy is going to linger for the coming weeks and will work alongside the Super New Moon of June, so you may not  be able to fully feel the start of the new cycle just yet.

This month, Mother Moon will need some time to work her magic.

In fact, if you were planning to use this New Moon for manifestation work, you may have to wait a few days in order for this energy to settle so you can really see things clearly and manifest from a clear frame of mind.

Everyone is going to be affected by this New Moon slightly differently, so just keep an open mind and go with the flow.

Mother Moon is always on our side, we just have to trust.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: May Full Moon 2017”

May-Full-Moon-2017.jpg

May’s Full Moon falls on the 10th/11th in the watery sign of Scorpio and holds extremely powerful and potent energy.

Scorpio energy is all about transformation and reaching higher levels of consciousness. In fact, Scorpio energy has the potential to reach Divine levels of consciousness, but at the same time, it also has the ability to reach extremely low levels of consciousness as well.

No matter where you fall on the “consciousness spectrum” it is likely that this Full Moon is going to leave a lasting impact. It is also likely that this Full Moon is going to help open your consciousness to a new level so you can see things in a different light.

May’s Full Moon is going to represent a turning point in the year and an opportunity to really embrace and accept any recent changes.

It is also going to bring about a powerful transformative shift that will really allow you to move forward.

In fact, after the energy of this Full Moon starts to fade, you may be feeling a greater sense of understanding of the road ahead. This is also due to the fact that both Mercury and Venus, which have recently been retrograde, are also going to start speeding up.

Things may feel a little uneasy leading up to the Full Moon as changes may be in the air, but the best way to manage this energy moving forward is remembering your personal power.

Very often we forget that we have a strength and a power within us. This power gives us the ability to step up and take responsibility over our lives no matter what troubles we find ourselves in.

The minute we give away our power, it becomes very difficult to deal with the situations that life throws our way. But, when we remember that we have infinite wisdom and potential within, it becomes much easier to navigate through murky times.

Claiming your personal power is really about acknowledging that you are more than just a physical body.

In order to really step up into your power, you have to know that you are a highly advanced and intelligent energetic being that has a soul that is both timeless and endless.

If you have been needing to remind yourself of this, if you have been needing to connect within and tune into that inner power, this Scorpio Full Moon is going to be the perfect time to do it.

Full Moon’s usually symbolise a time of releasing and letting go, however the potency of this Scorpio Moon also makes it a great time to send your wishes into the cosmos.

Reaching out to your Spirit Team for help and guidance will also be easier under this cosmic influence, so definitely use this energy to your advantage.

Part of understanding your personal power is knowing that you are not alone, and that you have a team of Spirit Guides and Angels that are on your side to help you move through life.

Many astrologers and ancient cultures have always believed that the Scorpio Full Moon is one of the most powerful for reaching out to ancient ancestors and guardian spirits. It is also believed to be one of the best Full Moon’s for rituals and manifestation work.

With so much magic energy circling in the first part of May, it is going to be impossible not to feel the effects of this Full Moon.

Whatever stirs for you this week, let the Moon be your guide and see if you can be open to viewing things from a higher level of consciousness.

Transformation is going to occur under this Full Moon and everyone is going to feel this on some level.

Be open to where the Universe is directing you and know that when you claim your power, there is no mountain to high or obstacle too difficult.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: April New Moon 2017”

april-new-moon-astrology-2017.jpg

The April New Moon falls on the 26th in the earth sign of Taurus, which will bring a fresh new energy.

April has been an interesting month because of the many planets in retrograde. This has caused the month to feel somewhat sluggish and perhaps things from the past that you thought were cleared and resolved have bubbled to the surface for a revisit.

The energy of this month may have made you feel as if you are walking around in circles, but know that the New Moon energy is going to bring a change, a slow change, but a change nonetheless.

This New Moon falls in the practical and earthy sign of Taurus, which means that there is a certain element of needing to double check things and really assess things before moving forward.

Even though Mother Moon herself will bring change and a new beginning, Taurus energy will really require us to move slowly and to really think about our safety and security.

Taurus energy is all about ensuring that we have created a solid foundation before leaping ahead. To do this, Taurus energy guides us to find our ‘comfort zone’ and to build from this place.

If you have felt scattered and all over the place this year so far, this New Moon will help you to find your comfort zone. In other words, this New Moon will be helping you to find stability and security in your life so you can move forward with more ease.

This may take time and trial and error, but if you follow the energy of this New Moon and allow yourself to be guided, you will find the perfect spot to build your empire.

This energy from the New Moon may not be felt straight away, as Taurus energy is slow and very methodical. It moves at its own pace and at first, it may be hard to notice where this New Moon is guiding you to.

The retrograde energy is also going to amplify these feelings and perhaps it will seem like your are wading through a murky fog for the rest of the month.

This will be short lived and the energy of the cosmos will start moving again eventually. In fact, if you use this energy and let it guide you, it can actually be extremely productive.

The April New Moon will help us to switch gears so we can look at things from a different point of view.

Perhaps we need to look down at the ground we are standing on instead of up in the sky. Perhaps we need to look at what is already in front of us and around us rather than trying to create anything new.

Overall, the Taurus New Moon is a gentle one and is going to allow you to feel more comforted and secure with your current situation.

This New Moon is not going to stir up anything abruptly or mess with your emotions too much. All it is going to do is help you to find your feet.

Under this current energy, try as much as possible to go with the flow and to not rush ahead with anything too quickly. Give yourself time and focus on what is already in front of you rather than doing anything new.

If you are looking to create more security and comfort in your life on any level, whether it is financially, in your relationships or even in your own self, this New Moon will also be the perfect time to set an intention.

Comfort, security and peace of mind are all things that we need at times in order to keep growing and pushing ourselves further.

Even though it is not possible to always feel these things, this New Moon will light the path ahead for you and allow you to feel safe and supported on your journey no matter where you are.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Intuitive Astrology: The Retrograde Effect April 2017”

retrograde-effect-2017.jpg

Every so often we have a line up of planets that enter into retrograde mode at the same time.

When a planet is in retrograde, it begins operating with more of a “feminine” energy rather than a “masculine” energy. In many ways, it is like the planet is charged up using Lunar energies rather than Solar energy.

When a planet is in retrograde, it exudes a more intuitive energy and works on the subconscious mind rather than the conscious mind. When a planet is in retrograde, it dips below the surface of the seen world into the hidden world.

Many astrologers believe that a retrograde planet is not functioning at its best, but I believe that the opposite is true. When a planet goes retrograde, it is functioning on an even higher level as it is activating our subconscious mind rather than our conscious mind.

Our subconscious mind is much more powerful than our conscious mind and drives and directs more of our behaviour, personality and dreams than we realize.

When a planet goes retrograde, it travels within and starts exuding its effects on a subconscious level. It is almost like a retrograding planet has the ability to bring the subconscious into the conscious.

When a planet is retrograde, usually we feel out of sorts and all over the place, which is why people generally associate retrogrades as being negative.

Retrogrades are not negative, they simply shift us around so we can get back into alignment.

Retrograde energy is also highly feminine and in these patriarchal times, on a subconscious level, many of us struggle to accept and integrate feminine energy into our every day lives.

Retrogrades are powerful and magical times, which is why when many planets shift into retrograde at the same time, it can have a profound effect on us.

In April 2017, a total of 5 planets will be retrograde including- Venus, Mercury, Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto.

These planets each have their own retrograde cycle, however the combination of their energy in April 2017 in particular, is likely to be significant.

In a nutshell, when so many planets go retrograde it typically represents a time to slow down and to go with the flow, rather than trying to take action.

When so many planets are in retrograde, it is a time to tune into and work with your feminine energy, rather than your masculine energy.

Masculine energy is all about taking action, making plans and shifting forward. Masculine energy rules over the seen and physical world as well as the physical body.

Masculine energy also rules over data, facts, figures, the ego mind and all of the other things we need to navigate through this physical world.

We of course, need masculine energy as it helps us survive, thrive and get things done, but we also need feminine energy.

Feminine energy is creative energy, it is about exploring the world using your sixth sense and about understanding the unseen worlds. If masculine energy is about the physical body, feminine energy is about the emotional or etheric body.

Feminine energy also rules over emotions, feelings, intuition and our connection with others, nature and the planet.

We cannot operate in this world with only one of these energies. We need both, just like we need both sides of the brain, as together they create the harmony and balance that will support us through life.

As a society however, masculine and feminine energies are very much out of balance, and so when the planets start operating in a retrograde motion, we really feel the effects.

The selection of planets moving retrograde in 2017 all carry a similar theme. Even though we are being asked to slow down and go with the flow, we are also being asked to question where we operate our lives from.

Many of us operate life from the position of our mind, but perhaps there is more value in operating from the position of your heart.

The theme of this retrograde effect is really due to Venus, who retrogrades the most infrequently of any other planet. This makes her retrograde cycle one of the most potent.

Here is a summary of the planets retrograde and their effects-

Venus: Venus is retrograding to help awaken our hearts on a deeper level. She has been retrograde since March 4th and will leave retrograde on April 15th, 2017. You can read more about Venus retrograde here.

Mercury: Mercury is retrograding to help bring a voice to everything we have learnt during our heart awakening instilled by Venus. Mercury will be guiding us to activate the energy center of our throat so we can communicate the messages from our heart clearly and concisely. Mercury will retrograde from April 9th to May 3rd, 2017.

Jupiter: Jupiter retrograde is helping us to re-evaluate our goals and to think about why we are doing what we are doing. Jupiter retrograde also helps you to go back to old projects with new ideas. Jupiter retrograde is a time to find success by doing things differently and following your intuition. Jupiter is retrograde from February 6th to June 9th, 2017.

Saturn: Saturn will go retrograde on April 16th and will be guiding us to step up and take responsibility for the choices we have made. Saturn will be asking us to claim back our power and will help us to uncover subconscious blocks or patterns that are holding us back. Saturn will go direct on August 25th, 2017.

Pluto: Pluto will go retrograde on April 20th and will be guiding us to really uncover the skeletons hidden in our closet. Pluto will also be guiding us to make changes and to transform our lives to a new level of power. Pluto works on such a deep, subconscious level that we are likely to not even understand or comprehend the influence of Pluto. Pluto moves direct on September 28th, 2017.

As a general rule of thumb, when planets furthest from the Sun like, Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto go retrograde we are likely not to feel it as much. This is because these planets are already operating on a subconscious level most of the time.

It is the planets closest to the Sun, like Venus and Mercury, that we feel the effects of the most. When one of these planets go retrograde, we are more likely to have the awareness to notice.

When any planet goes retrograde, it is generally a time of self reflection and to explore the deeper, and more profound thoughts of the subconscious mind.

Activities like journalling, spending time in nature and creative projects are great ways to make use of this retrograde time.

Also, try your best to go with the flow rather than creating expectations for yourself and others.

The more you can go with the flow and allow the energies to guide you, the more you trust in whatever the Universe brings for you, the easier your life will be.
