June & July 2017 Astrology by Sarah Lyons

June:  

Fiery Mars visits emotional Cancer on the 4th for the next six weeks; and can bring moodiness and emotional frustrations to the surface! Also over indulgence will be tempting as feelings sway our judgment.

Love planet Venus enjoys stability in faithful Taurus beginning the 6th and lasting all month!  Relationships feel secure and we appreciate the finer things in life.

Communication gets logical, we think fast and enjoy learning when Mercury goes home to Gemini on the 6th until the 20th!  A Full Rose Moon on the 8th in Sagittarius illuminates areas of confusion; to see truth and give clarity with innovative visions.

The Summer Solstice occurs on the 21st as the Sun enters Cancer starting the summer season.  Family time is fulfilling and the home becomes the hub of our universe!  On the same day Mercury joins the Sun and thinking becomes more intuitive as we are sensitive to our surroundings.  The New Moon in Cancer begins the lunar cycle on the 23rd with the Sun and Mercury’s influences, which creates an active and changeable energy that can truly be creative and transforming!

July:

Variety is the spice of life now as Venus visits Gemini on the 4th, our country’s 241st birthday, and stays there all month! Living in the moment and tasting what life has to offer is what keeps us happy!  Thinking with our heart for the next three weeks starts on the 5th as Mercury transits loving, generous Leo.  A few days later on the 9th, a Full Thunder Moon lights up the sky in serious Capricorn; sign of ambition, responsibility and position.

Difficult aspects will surely bring out situations or power plays in unexpected ways both personally and on a global level.  Watch for political upsets and personal challenges but realize that you are the one in control of your own world; where your actions can make this time  easier or more difficult.  Mars, planet of desire, energizes romantic Leo on the 20th directing our attention to fun loving, creative activities.

And the New Moon in Leo on the 23rd begins a very powerful lunar cycle that will be perfect to begin most anything that your heart desires!  Power to follow through, creative and new found opportunities with lasting yet adaptable outcomes is yours for the making now!

This is one of the best lunar cycles this year to make the most of going for what you want now!  Mercury ends the month by moving into analytical Virgo on the 25th.  Thinking gets cool, logical; and practical application to our plans can be an asset for growth.

Astrology April 2017

Spring is here with an action packed planetary lineup to start the season! The lunar cycle will peak with a Full Pink Moon in relationship sign Libra on the 11th. This full moon celebrates the abundance of flowers that comes with spring! You can be sure that a few surprises will be revealed or illuminated at this time. Venus retrograde until the 15th will also help us to go back and mend fall outs or let go of things and make peace with others now. This is true in all types of relationships. Venus gets help from communication planet Mercury as our little friend stations retrograde on April 9! Now is the time for all kinds of unfinished business to get your attention before you start anything new at all. Mercury in Taurus will especially focus on money matters for about a week (just in time for taxes) then move on to action oriented Aries giving us energy to RE- just about anything! Keep on releasing, reviewing, reconnecting and reworking so you will be ready to really spring forward next month!

The Sun enters practical, determined Taurus on April 19th grounding us and giving us the persistence to reach our goals; but allowing us to indulge a bit along the way! Two days later on the 21st, fiery Mars charges into Gemini leading us in as many directions as we want to go! A quick wit and restlessness for excitement keeps us motivated and active. This leads up to the next lunar cycle on the 26th when the New Moon in Taurus centers us, bringing focus on material needs and possessions. This new cycle has creative, magical influences that ask us to use our imagination and make the most of what we already have or can repurpose. Also, a strong need for some down time either alone or with those whose company we enjoy, will mean a lot to our peace of mind. Love and money planet Venus visits impulsive Aries on the 28th. A cheerful and positive outlook brings a more outgoing, social vibe; but, overwhelming others or being too aggressive will spoil the moment. 

ARIES: Relationships get attention as you reconnect and resolve unexpected issues. Take some time to relax on your own; rethink your position in life. New ways to earn are your focus later; discern priorities, get creative. Your charm and wit will go far now!

TAURUS: Workplace and wellness take the spotlight; as concerns surface, resolve and release where needed. Review you needs vs. wants. Reconnect to friends. The new lunar cycle puts the focus on you, your dreams, and how you can best achieve them.

GEMINI: Mend relationships with superiors; enhance status. Fun, creativity and dating are where the action is for you and a few surprises, too! Reconnect to friends. A new direction comes from inner exploration. Later, express yourself, take charge, move on. 

CANCER: Get away for some R&R if at all possible. Home projects and family issues get your full attention; with a demanding work schedule needing balance. Reconnect and review future plans. New energy fills social life; but you steal away when you can.

LEO: A financial blessing or resolution of issues is likely. Inner healing reflects in improved health. Travel and conversations are enlightening and liberating! Career, status, get reviewed; reworked in new direction. Socialize and dream of future plans. 

VIRGO: Healing relationships and attending to family duties come now. Then, your financial picture takes the spotlight as you review resources; reexamine values. Travel and education are areas of new interest. You will work hard to be promoted; rise up.

LIBRA: Health should start to improve as old habits are corrected. A strong focus on relationships puts you on center stage. Reconnect, resolve and get reacquainted! Your financial picture gets new life as you get creative; work to retain, replenish resources.

SCORPIO: Get back to love, romance, hobbies and fun that you have missed! Partners are open to discussions. Private affairs may come to light. Taking time for mental and physical health; break old habits. New energy in relationships bring pleasant results.

SAGITTARIUS: Spending time with family and home life is gratifying. Leave work early to enjoy kids and creative time. Friends, social events become your focus mid month. Later new wellness plans and workplace changes begin that may increase income.

CAPRICORN: Conversations are healing; a short trip pleasant. Career calls for your attention but home and family needs bring balance. A new energy puts love and fun time back on your calendar. Your month ends with work duties and home projects.

AQUARIUS: Make peace with others and finances, too! What do you value now? Your beliefs and general outlook on life comes to the forefront to be examined. Let go of old ways that no longer serve you. Talk things over. Home and family take on a new light.

PISCES: Pamper yourself; take me time now. Review spending mid month with focus on finances, resources; yours and others. Your intuition is strong; emotions intense. A new theme begins with communication, siblings. Short trips and daily life keep you busy.

Astrology March 2017

Relationship planet Venus stations Retrograde in impulsive Aries on the 4th. It’s time to slow down, make peace in current relationships and curb impulsive spending. New love and purchases of art, jewelry and beauty related items won’t go as expected. Action planet Mars enters stable, conservative Taurus on the 9th; which will support more practical behavior.

The Full Crow Moon in industrious Virgo falls on the 12th bringing the lunar cycle to a peak. Named for when the cawing of the crows signal the end of winter; and duties switch to preparation for spring. Aspects will assist in the organization and elimination of the unnecessary over the next two weeks, so we may be able to begin with a fresh new start for the coming season.

Thinking planet Mercury visits quick, eager Aries on the 13th which is the very next day! This energy brings fast thinking and speaking with the ability to multitask. But we must watch out for getting scattered and how our words are delivered, too. On the 20th, the Vernal Equinox occurs when the Sun enters Aries, bringing us the first day of spring! And just as the new season officially begins, one week later on the 27th, the New Moon joins the Sun to start a dynamic lunar cycle of growth and progress. Whatever we begin or put into action now will see fast developments and lasting results. Mercury didn’t visit Aries long and now our little messenger is on to bring his delightful gifts to steady Taurus starting the 31st. Slower more determined, cautious and constructive thinking helps us follow through now.

Astrology: April 2016

ariesLove and beauty planet Venus visits impulsive, courageous Aries on the 5th creating a need for instant gratification as we want what we want with little to no waiting! Watch out for “leaping before you look” with purchases and romantic attractions during April. A little adventure doesn’t hurt once in a while though, and with Mercury changing signs the same day visiting level headed, conservative Taurus, we might just be able to figure out how to get the best of a sudden opportunity!

The New Moon in Aries on the 7th can bring some lovely and unexpected beginnings. Spring has definitely sprung and we are off to a quick start in this lunar cycle of original and dynamic energy.

We break into new territories with grace and fortitude; feeling propelled forward yet a bit unclear of the final outcomes. Why? Well action planet Mars has slowed down and will be Retrograde on the 17th and in difficult aspect to Neptune. This vibration is better for introspection and meditation; the next 10 weeks of internalized energy can be frustrating so plan carefully.

The Sun leaves action sign Aries on the 19th and enters patient, dependable Taurus so we can slow down, use caution and determination to get where we want to go. Music and art are inspiring to us as well as a good financial plan. Quality rules over quantity now. A beautiful Full Pink Moon in Scorpio on the 22nd, named so for the bright pink blooms of phlox and moss in the spring, will be shining bright in our sign of resources. Now is a good time to start looking around at what we already have to work with as very soon, Mercury will Retrograde on the 28th in Taurus.

This activity focused on the financial signs is signaling a time to reflect and review our current state of affairs. Reuse or release items no longer needed. Finish projects or let them go. Clear out all of the old. On the 29th when Venus enters Taurus, our values become clear. We wait for what we want, indulge in our desires and surround ourselves with what means the most to us. The energy around us this month will definitely reflect the renewal process of spring!
