NEW MOON in CANCER
June 23 2017 is a new Moon in Water sign Cancer. Cancers are highly sensitive and are natural empaths. Cancer rules the 4th house of family, home, and roots. So this lunar month is time to focus on home, security, and ways of nurturing self and others.
The new Moon, Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in Cancer for healing communication, setting boundaries, and creating comfortable and peaceful environments. Plus Cancers can be astute about finances, so this lunar month is good to organize your financial affairs.
Mars trines Neptune in Pisces to work collectively, and help others. Venus in Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn to strengthen relationship bonds, and artistic work has more emotional impact.
But a cardinal T-square of Mars square Jupiter and opposite Pluto could bring concerns about where to go and what to do. Under the influence of gentle Cancer, it’s better to slow down, take time for yourself, and complete current projects before initiating new endeavors.
MONTH of the SHEEP
This new Moon begins the month of the Fire Sheep in Chinese astrology. The element Fire adds more liveliness and passion to Sheep’s character. Sheep love the arts, so this lunar month is time to appreciate art in all its forms.
Sheep month is also time to tend your health, back down from arguments, and treat weekends or free time as if you were at a spaaa. Luck is strongest for Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces and those born in Sheep, Horse, Rabbit, and Pig years.

June 9 2017 is a full Moon in Fire sign Sagittarius. Sagittarius is ruled by JUPITER, the planet of good fortune. The full Moon sextiles Jupiter in Libra, plus the Sun in Gemini trines Jupiter making it easier to express and receive kindness, support, and nurturing. There can be increased optimism and inspirational energy to expand your goals and reach new heights, especially during this full Moon peak of dynamic and active Fire Horse month.
Close relationships also experience good fortune as Venus, newly in sensuous Earth sign Taurus, sextiles Mars newly in sensitive Cancer. Relationships are gratifying, there is a balance of personal needs and the needs of others, and perhaps a renewed passion due to the influence of the Fire Horse. This weekend is a good time for social activities, and financial activities are also favored.
The Sun and full Moon square NEPTUNE in Pisces, so temper any tendency to race off like a Horse with blinders, especially concerning finances. If there is a large gap between your ideals and your reality, the full Moon conjuncts Saturn that restricts both Sagittarius’ and Horse’s love of freedom, but is necessary to be realistic and plan. Luck is most powerful for Fire signs Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo and those born in Horse, Dragon, Phoenix (Rooster), and Monkey years.

April 9 – May 3 2017 communication planet Mercury is retrograde for three weeks.
Traditionally in astrology, Mercury retrograde is a time of miscommunication, technology problems, and items lost or misplaced. But Mercury retrograde during this Fire Phoenix (Rooster) year 2017 can be an excellent time to focus on detailed tasks and catch up on financial matters.
April 9 – 20 Mercury retrograde in Earth sign Taurus. Good to follow up, get grounded, and complete tasks. You can be thorough and take your time. Venus rules Taurus who loves art, beauty, and enjoying the finer things of life.
April 20 – May 3 Mercury retrograde in Fire sign Aries for strong communication and taking immediate action. Fire brings energy to complete projects, but impulsive or snap decisions can be corrected at a later time.
We feel the Mercury retrograde influence until the new Moon on May 26 that begins a new lunar cycle.
