12 Cancer 54
Reflections from the Heart of Spirit
The Cancer New Moon occurs at 13 degrees Cancer on July 4th, within the "7" vibration of the month of July where the esoteric and hidden spiritual meanings in circumstances and events come to Light for re-membering. There is a lot of information to re-member during this New Moon as it is filled with awe-inspiring, multi-faceted, inter-connected transformational energies. It is the sum of its parts, directing us on our new evolutionary journey. So let's get started on the journey.....
In Cancer, ruled by the Moon, we dip into the depths of the subconscious, the deepest part of our human experience contained within our cells themselves. The subconscious resides at the bottom the Cosmic Consciousness clock where the emotions rise up like waves from the invisible realms of our subconscious to fuel the newly upgraded higher Mind towards Love (Heart)-based responses. We are being asked to shine the Light of Spirit in the very depths of our Being where our thoughts and emotions meet so that our habitual responses, and the unconscious motivations that have fueled them during our 3D experience, can be exorcised or appropriately upgraded into the 5D experience of Wholeness.
It has been postulated that the Fixed Star Sirius provided the energetic genetic coding within our cells for the experience of transformation that originates within and radiates outward as an Awakened, activated, resonate energetic signature to assist the Earth in her Ascension process as we walk upon her in our daily lives. We are currently being mandated to transform by Sirius, himself, who sits at 14 Cancer and is presiding over this New Moon from a cosmic, ascended perspective, aligning his energies with our conscious awareness. Sirius' vibratory resonance with greater knowledge and wisdom infuses us with a more expanded contextual framework within which to see and understand the significance, inter-relatedness, and perfection in the multidimensional experiences, from cellular to Cosmic, that we are each having in every "now" moment.
This planetary alignment of Sirius with this New Moon is initiating a new cycle of conscious awareness for the inhabitants of Earth regarding Sirius' impact and relevance in our Earthly experience. This alignment has huge cosmic implications and consequences. We are being asked to dig deep and clear all the spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical cobwebs so that we become clear radiators of the fruits of our labors as Self transformers. By constantly and consistently embodying and manifesting our lessons learned on Earth as the outward expression of our consciously emerging Self, we are providing the Cosmos, itSelf, with the conscious experience in human form of the transformational qualities inherent in the Awakened expression of Source.
This New Moon event is in the sign of Cancer who's house of influence is located at the bottom of the Cosmic Consciousness chart where the Heart takes precedence and becomes the focal point through which to experience. It is the place where the higher Mind and higher Heart have the opportunity to unite as One, opening the entire depths of our Being into a receptive container for Source to descend into and enlighten. A New Moon represents the end of one cycle and the beginning of a new 28-day cycle. In the sign of the emotional power of the Heart, we are being asked to feel our feelings fully so that we can know what we are being sourced by when we are creating our beliefs, behaviors, and habits. That it is occurring on July 4th, our Independence Day, is prophetic. We are being asked to take responsibility for freeing ourselves from old habits, behaviors, and beliefs, replacing them with new Love-infused, progressive options. The Sun and Moon, the two Great Lights of Spirit, are staring a new cycle together, so all possibilities are available to us.
In addition, standing in the purity of the LIbran energy of perfect balance within the Cancer hour, who's energies and ruler are disposing this New Moon,is MakeMake, the higher octave of Saturn and the keeper of the knowledge that Love is the Law of the Cosmos. Resting in the emotional Portal of Strength between the Cancer hour of emotional power and and the Leo hour of emotional Love are Jupiter, the Soul Star Chakra (North Node), and Orcus. They have a combined evolutionary mandate for us pointing us towards the expansion of our Selves into the information and experiences contained within the invisible realms so that we can re-member our innate ability to travel freely between multi-dimensional worlds.
During today's Cancer New Moon, we are experiencing a 5-planet Cancer stellium comprised of Varuna, Venus, the Moon, the Sun, and Mercury. Varuna, the All-Seeing Eye of God, and Mercury, the ruler of the Mental Body, are bracketing this stellium of 5 planets traveling together as One. In essence, the two Great Lights of Spirit (the Sun and Moon) and Love (Venus, the ruler of the Emotional Body and the Heart) are contained within the higher Mind and Eye of God. The Light and Love of Source are being cradled within Source's unified Eye that sees only with Love and the higher Mind, with all working together as One reflection of It's Truth, which is Light and Love in its many different forms. That this stellium rests in a Cancer container within the Libra hour of the highest realization that there is no "other" emphasizes the understanding that we, in Truth, INTER-ARE. That in any relationship in manifested or un-manifested form, the interaction that we perceive, observe, and participate in is simply facets of our Self interacting with each other.
All of this is what is arising on the Ascendant of this New Moon experience. It is what is coming into physical view for us to understand, integrate, and express in our daily lives. Pluto, the transformer and rebirther, is sitting exactly opposite from this Cancer stellium in the Libra hour, opposite the two Great Lights of Spirit and their higher vehicle for expression. Pluto is sitting in the Aries hour of the power of the higher Mind that is ruled by Mars, the ruler of the Physical Body and the generator of Right Action, or Love-based action. Pluto is helping to transform and rebirth a new awareness and perception of the Whole Self into the physical so that it gets embedded into our cellular structure, uniting the upgraded Heart and Mind of Source into the depths of our being. He is also seeking to be seen in higher Light as the archetypal reflection of the transformational, creative Universal Force of Change working his magic wherever he finds himself expressed in our lives. Pluto has been given great responsibility to awaken Sirius' encoded influence in our cells. For Pluto is the representative and messenger of Sirius' encodings who leads and escorts us on our journey towards the previously invisible, now more apparent realm of the Whole Self.
The Sun, the part of our Selves reflecting the facet of Spirt that we have chosen to experience in our current incarnation, is staring a new cycle with both the Moon and Mercury. The Sun's new relationship with the Moon is being reflected in our homes on any level, close relationships, and our expression and experience of the Divine Feminine. The Sun's new relationship with Mercury is with the newly upgraded Mercury that embodies Love-based action as the new reflection of the Divine Masculine's higher Mind. Our essence, our reflection of Spirit, is starting a new relationship on a higher level with both the Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine so that their reflection and expression is Spirit-sourced.
The Moon, the disposer of this New Moon of the Heart of Divine Feminine power, is also starting a new cycle with Mercury. The higher Heart and the higher Mind, the rulers of the Emotional Body and the Mental Body, and the reflectors of the true Divine Feminine and Divine Masculine are seeking to work together as One. Their alignment is presenting each and every one of us with this opportunity and choice to embody within.
Saturn, the definer of our social consciousness and therefore our physical experience here on Earth, is squaring Neptune during this New Moon. Neptune is the archetype that illuminates our illusions, delusions, and confusions to enlighten us through our conscious awareness of them and their evolutionary service to us. We are being asked by Saturn and Neptune to step up and embrace a new, higher vibratory definition of social consciousness embodying a level of personal integrity which honors as sacred the expression of the higher Truth of who we are. This is an intuitive knowing in each of our Hearts that can no longer be denied if we are being honest with our Selves. It is this sacred Self-respect that seeks to be reflected.
To help support the emergence of this new social consciousness, the Sun is in a Great Eliminator with Neptune. Spirit is asking us to release all perspectives, beliefs, behaviors, and actions that do not support sacred respect for Self as Love, and all reflections of Self. In addition, the newly upgraded Mercury is manifesting a relationship with Neptune that is enlightening the higher Mind with conscious awareness of this new paradigm for social consciousness so that Self-respect and Self-Love can be manifested into Love-based action in our physical experience.
This brings us back to Sirius, currently the most "over-lighting influence here on Earth" and an ascended portion of our Cosmic Self who is said to have seeded our DNA with powerful energies of multi-dimensional awareness at the unconscious level. In essence, this "seeding" into the receptive, fertile field of our DNA was that individualization would lead to transformation by increasing and improving our ability to Love. It was the intention of Sirius at the time of the seeding that transformation would be promoted by compassionate awareness and conscious, responsible action. This "seeding" contains the awareness of our inherent ability to consciously understand the world of our own making through the interactions of our subtle bodies, our 4-Body (Spirit, Mind, Heart, Physical) human vehicle for experiencing life and death/transformation in manifested form here on Earth. Sirius seeded and encoded the energies of transformation as a collective, co-creative experience at both the individual and global levels using Love as its transformative energy to dissolve all feelings and experiences of separation, thus freeing us to be true reflections of our Whole Self.
We are being asked to reflect upon the answers to these questions during this new 28-day Moon cycle: Does what you see and are experiencing in your relationship with all parts of your Self feel like a reflection of Love? If not, why? What will it take to feel more like Love?
The answers will yield the full blessings and gifts of Spirit available to each and every one of us through today's New Moon event. Let the higher, more Awakened evolutionary journey towards reunion with Source begin!
So Be It.

Reflections from the Heart of Spirit
There's never been a more important time to bring your highest consciousness into your thinking. That is, tune into the Light that you love so much and allow it to be unconditionally downloaded into your higher mind, so that your thoughts are consistently infused with the Love that is so essential to the ascension that is taking hold in the hearts of every human being. Your capacity for higher understanding is unprecedented, and this is that moment you've been waiting for. Find the freedom to share your awareness with the world, and you'll be the one to provide new ground for the new reality that is taking shape. It's what you've always dreamed of, isn't it? Once the download begins, you'll find you have access to concepts and ideas that are unique and profoundly original.
You've always known you're destined to share your wisdom.

14 Gemini 53
The New Moon in Gemini is a major part of a wisdom crossroad that promises to help everything fall into place. Think of the sound of the wind rustling the leaves on the trees on a warm summer night. There is a teasing apart taking place that can open up space for new insights, a new perspective, or possibility to emerge. Remember that you have a deep inner knowing, and unseen support at all times, to help you find your true path and walk your most truthful talk.
The reliably shifting faces of the Moon teach that even when she seems to disappear, she is there and will return into view soon enough. This is a really beautiful teaching. The face of the New Moon is invisible. Ideally we don't fall apart when our beloved is out of view. We trust they will return and we are ok without them. This Moon takes it a step further and asks us to have faith in the ultimate unseen. Indeed sometimes those we love don't return, but a loving presence is still there. The New Moon says, "Today I am invisible, what else in your world is unseen?" and "How can you feel into it with the same faith that it exists, as you have that I will return to a shining ball of light?". What love the Moon has for us that she returns again and again. She takes this New Moon time to refresh herself. We can take her example and do the same.
New Moon energy is very inwardly oriented, which serves well during this time. It's a chance to recalibrate and to rest the mind and the body, especially if there has been a lot of mental activity lately. It takes time to distill wisdom and put knowledge to use. This New Moon brings peace and harmony. We are guided to draw awareness down into the heart, to know ourselves as a love that holds all opinions and possibilities without conflict, and that doesn't need to 'know' or be right, because it is living what is known and what it is right in each moment.
There is deep wisdom to be found in the living of our lives. What questions are most pertinent to you in your life right now? Can you rest in the beauty, complexity and power of your questions without needing to know the answer? Becoming a living embodiment of a question, over time, like magic, we may find ourselves living the answer. Questions connect with the leading edge of evolution. Feel into the most juicy question for you right now and then connect with the source of all answers. Focus on the source of the mind itself.
The New Moon reaches out with understanding to planets in signs all connected, on some level, with the nature of truth and reality. There is a focus on seeing things as they are and on listening to intuition, versus confusing it with the many messages the mind may present. Ultimate security is not found in the mind, but in the generator of it.
The New Moon in Gemini brings heart-centered communication into focus and relationships benefit greatly. What is reality like for another person? What do their words mean coming from them? Where there is a superficial focus on words, the potential for deep connection is limited. The New Moon presents opportunities for deep heart connection, for us to show up with compassion, to hear another's story, and to share our own.
When we lose touch with our source, we lose touch with ourselves. We are pulled, by the force of the New Moon into the void, where all inspiration is born. Are you bold enough to let go into the unknown?
You're not loved for what you know, you're loved for the essence of who you are.

2016 Sagittarius Full Moon
Saturday May 21, 2016
4:15pm EDT, 1:15pm PDT, 9:15pm BST
There's so much expansion taking place, we get 2 full Moons in Sagittarius this year! These bookend full Moons have a lot to teach. Get ready for some awakening inner and outer travels. This first full Moon in Sagittarius steps up the invitation to live your truth, in the most mundane aspects of your life and the most public. What sacred message wants to come through you? What vision are you committed to living into being?
The fire of this full Moon purifies thoughts and directs actions towards your highest good. With a strong mutable element present, change is a given. What adventure are you feeling into? What expansion is making itself visible?
A free flow of energy within, leads to a free flow without. The Full Moon shines a light on any stuck energy within the body and mind. You can cure restlessness and impatience with the outer world by tending to the energy flow within. Really practically, Sagittarius can be associated with excess so it may be time to clean up the diet and be good to your liver. Physical activity helps move energy and ground you in your body.
A sense of restlessness may be inviting you to shift a belief that isn't in alignment with your highest truth. What are your beliefs about a current situation you wish to change? Do you believe it can change for the better? Inner awareness expands so you can clearly see emotional reactions coming, especially up around a situation you've experienced before. You have the opportunity to pause and consider how you want to engage with it. The option to act from a place of love and courage is there for you.
Full Moons mark a key turning point in the lunar cycle where a flowering takes place; of awareness, emotions, events, etc. Mars retrograde and the Sun form their own full phase aspect as they oppose one another on the 22nd. This is a key turning point in the Mars retrograde cycle, when a soul desire that was perhaps frustrated in the past comes back into the light. Growth often comes by taking 2 steps forward and 1 step back. The step back is meant to help you integrate the change that is taking place, even if it doesn't seem that way. What steps can you take now, drawing on the wisdom gained from experience?
Mars backtracks into Scorpio in a few days. The full Moon is lighting a torch of higher perspective that you get to take with you into the depths. Each time you take a trip to the underworld you have the opportunity to see it in a positive light, knowing that you will re-emerge in a new form with new capacities.
The vital, purposeful Sun is aligned with the sacred fire of Vesta in Gemini. They help you stay focused on your purpose, knowing, as it's said, that where you direct your attention, your vital force flows. Mars retrograde participating in the full Moon, makes it easy to re-align your actions with your vision and purpose. The full Moon asks you to assimilate and integrate what you've learned; to make it personal and to use your knowledge in service to the sacred message you are here to share. Keep it real and keep it close to the heart.
Many blessings on this Full Moon!
