Cycles and Your Inner Sea: Cancer New Moon

The sea is one of nature's embodied paradoxes: though it is in one sense constant in its vastness and depth, it is also constantly changing—such as with the tides. True, storms and certain types of currents can seem to come up suddenly, but the tides offer a cycle of continual shift that is dependable and that fosters many kinds of life.


Mind-Mapping Your Approach to the Solstice

As summer solstice approaches, the Gemini sun opposes Saturn and the centaur planet Ixion in Saggitarius. Aspects involving Gemini means there's an emphasis on mental energy, your thought processes, and how and what you're communicating. Specifically, it means you'll want to notice how you're handling anything with two sides to the story.

From Universal Lover to Love Warrior

Most people I know are feeling pretty raw and overwhelmed by the state of the world and the never-ending parade of things to be shocked by, and to fight against or mourn. If Venus really is morphing from "universal lover" into "love warrior," remember that the word in common is love.
