To my dear moon hearts…
We are in Cancer season- an emotional, watery season ruled by the moon. The moon asks us to honor all phases of our emotional being, and the solar eclipse brings to light many aspects of our unconscious realms … Asking us to pay attention to the unseen and hidden parts of ourselves that, perhaps, need some tending. Solar eclipses are when the sun is in closest proximity to the North and South Nodes. Our South Node is our Karma- representative of our past lives, selves, and the lessons we have mastered in previous times… this is the place we are the most comfortable, the place we often retreat back to. Our North Node is our Dharma- representative of the lessons we are here to learn in this lifetime, the reason we have reincarnated. Our North Node lessons will keep showing up until we step into the unknown and often uncomfortable spaces of becoming more comfortable in these realms. Solar eclipses offer us potent portals to make huge progress in moving toward our North Node Dharma. Cancer is nurturing, sensitive, and puts a huge emphasis on our home, tribe, family, security, emotional body, our mothers (or any mother archetype complexes we may have), and our ancestral lineages. Take a peak to see how these influences of Cancer might be impacting the progress toward your North Node. If you want to find out your birth chart and the position of your North Node: Astro Chart is an amazing resource. Your South Node is always the sign across from your North Node in the Astrological wheel.
Potent times for creating and manifesting… Eclipses bring more energy to anything they touch. What you put into motion now will start moving and building for the next 6 months. I am a big supporter of dreaming big! So, plant your most epic seeds, and I hope you see them flourish and grow to amazing capacity. You hold the power in your potential. Dream big, my loves.
Wishing my Dad and my country a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY.
Love you guys!

“We each have a North Node and a South Node in our personal astrology, or birth chart. Part of our life’s journey is to shift from the energies of our South Node to the energies of our North Node. Eclipses activate our personal Lunar Nodes helping us make leaps and bounds on our life’s path. Each Node, just like planets, is positioned in an astrological sign. They take on and transmit this vibration to us at the time of birth, influencing our soul’s quest for evolution. We come into this world knowing and understanding the energies of our South Node. We have mastered them in a previous life. They form our comfort zones and the places we return to over and over again simply because it’s familiar. Each zodiac sign has a low side and high side to its vibration. We must be careful to not get attached to the low side of our South Node out of familiarity. Part of our nodal journey is to detach and leave behind the lower vibrations of our South Node.
The North Node, on the other hand, holds the energetic qualities that we are here to master. They often feel foreign, but persist in showing up over and over again in our lives until we pay attention to them. Our North Node helps form the life lessons we are here to learn, how we learn them and how we integrate this information into the rest of our being.Our job is to master the high side of the energies of our North Node and mold them into our new place of comfort.” Spirit Daughter
”We’re now approaching the new moon solar eclipse in Cancer. This potential big shake-up on the home front may already be felt as we draw closer…and start of eclipse season, a window of 3 eclipses over three consecutive new and full moon creating a prolonged window of accelerated growth IF we embrace the lessons.
During a solar eclipse the moon moves in front of the sun obscuring the light of the sun. So this is a time when the dark feminine can be seen in the light of day. What does that mean? Unexpressed emotions will be felt and expressed catalyzing shifts based on the truth of our deepest feelings.
And Kali Ma, the Dark Mother will surface calling out unconscious patterns of behaviour…coming ready or not!
This first eclipse in the sign of Cancer is likely to highlight situations that are not honouring of our emotional body. i.e. relationships where we feel emotionally unloved, unsupported or unwelcome since Cancer highlights our core need to belong.
This eclipse may evoke mother issues that are impacting your ability to form emotional attachments and risk emotional intimacy and resentments if you feel like you’re not receiving the same level of nurturance and support you give to others.
And for those of you with planets near 10.37 (round it up to 11) degrees Cancer get ready for big life changes, particularly to do with home, family and community!
So whilst new moon in Cancer may see us wanting to snuggle on the couch with movies & comfort food in response to this intensity, it’s helpful to remember ‘in-tense’ encounters are an opportunity to accelerate our transformation.
So long as we stay in the present tense & feel what’s surfacing. The more present we are, the more available we are to take responsibility & process anything that’s being triggered.” The Moon Woman
”New M●●N ECLIPSE ◑ in CANCER ♋︎ “Do you ever think about the person you truly are at your core, despite society’s conditioning? Cancer is a symbol of your inner world, ancestral lineage & emotional foundation. Take a deep breath. A new moon solar eclipse will take place on July 2 in the sign of Cancer, followed by a lunar eclipse in Capricorn on July 16. This is the second series of eclipses taking place via the Cancer-Capricorn axis, as the first took place on July 12, 2018. And while some of us are already acquainted with this energy, themes from July 2000 & 2011 could also be resurfacing during this time. Pay attention.
Eclipses are powerful moon phases that generate life-changing events. This can bring either a new beginning or a much-needed ending, as it is a cosmic push from the heavens forcing you to take action you never considered possible. The eclipse on 7/2 will be a total solar eclipse, as the moon will be between the earth & the sun, which in turn leaves us with no light. Think about it, how can we see where we’re going without the light? Surrendering to the universe is essential to your eclipse journey. Trust the process.
This eclipse is about self reflection, emotional processing & ancestral healing. It’s time we learn how to nurture ourselves, despite the previously-set structures of our upbringing. With an opposition to Saturn, Pluto & the SN in Capricorn, we’re finally tuning into what matters most: our emotional truth & the family karma deeply embedded in our DNA. Tomorrow’s solar eclipse is a powerful gateway to your new beginning & a sextile to Uranus could greet you with unexpected abundance in the process. A trine to dreamy Neptune serves as a reminder to surrender to the divine.” – Valerie Mesa
Astro Energy Report: New Moon Solar Eclipse in Cancer – 2nd July //
A destiny point is upon us. This eclipse is part of the Cancer-Capricorn axis eclipse portals happening in July – (Capricorn lunar eclipse on the 16th).
Both of these signs are in the North + South Nodes for the collective + represent accelerated shifts in emotional growth, fated timelines + current realities.
Being the cosmic representations of the Mother (Cancer) + the Father (Capricorn), we are undergoing a rebalancing of energies within our hearts, our structures + humanity as a whole.
This eclipse is the first step in a potent eclipse period of rebirthing + restructuring both within and without. The emotional + the physical evolving into something higher.
Which means that the old, must make way for the new, so surrender + allow any shifts to take place.
A birthing of a new spiritual archetype is taking place. The Divine Feminine within us all is being healed + is rising.
Wounds are being asked to be healed + nurtured. This is both around the feminine Shakti energies + the inner child – asking you to evolve, so to provide the parenting that you may have never had.
Finding the nourishment, acknowledgment + healing from within – as you embrace those aspects of yourself looking for greater love.
This is an eclipse for emotional healing + emotional balance. With self-sabotaging internal emotional dynamics – that may have been hidden – coming up from the subconscious.
This may be a deep dive into emotions for some – pulling up + pulling out any self-made emotional prisons or unhealthy emotional patterns, so that you can be free from the chains around your heart.
Karmic cycles must close. It is time for a timeline hop. It is time to open your heart even more. Do you actually know how big your heart is? And how much love is inside of you?
For you are made of love. You are love. The time is upon us to remove the barriers of protection that we have previously sought refuge within.
To apply a tender balm to the wounds that it has experienced. To forgive + to embrace.
For the heart seeks expansion – back to the Source, back to the truth, back to who we really are. Back to the portal of the heart, from which the Divine Mother emanates.
A new approach needs to be embraced around how we love, heal, nurture, nourish, feel secure, parent (ourselves + others) + our sense of home.
This eclipse is in beautiful supportive aspects with Neptune + Uranus – both aspects of Source consciousness + unconditional love.
These energies are willing you + uplifting you to open up that beautiful heart of yours + shine its light + love out onto the world.
It is also helping you to embody more of your higher self within this reality + activating more of your higher aspects + talents through this portal to help you birth a new life.
Uranus will be helping you to break free, shake off any shackles + shake up your reality. Encouraging you to step into the NEW + unique + embrace whatever feels exciting to you.
As we head into total blackout in some places around the world, we may gain flashes of inspiration + insight. After being in the dark on many things for a while, breakthroughs are likely, with much that may have been buried or hidden rising to the surface.
The biggest indicator of challenges at this time is Saturn opposite both the Sun, Moon + North Node.
This is a planet of self-mastery checking in on your progress in order to help you mature both your conscious + unconscious aspects, as well as your Divine Feminine energies – all of which will be key for you to be able to step into the next cycle of your soul’s plan.
As you’ll know from previous posts, Saturn is conjunct Pluto, which gives this check-up even more force. Both are creating very deep-rooted changes within humanity + us as individuals, meaning that there is no where to hide when it comes to our personal growth… By Alchemise
The Good Things
Be Inspired! This inspired me… So fascinating. ** Bruce Lipton speaks
According to the central text of Daoism, the Dao De Jing: ‘The Way never acts yet nothing is left undone’. This is the paradox of wu wei. It doesn’t mean not acting, it means ‘effortless action’ or ‘actionless action’. It means being at peace while engaged in the most frenetic tasks so that one can carry these out with maximum skill and efficiency. Something of the meaning of wu wei is captured when we talk of being ‘in the zone’ – at one with what we are doing, in a state of profound concentration and flow. – The School of Life (Thank you to Liz Coffman & Daan Dragt for reminding me about this idea- inspired!)
Maybe you will join me in this “attention diet,” too… Sometimes I feel like I am so scattered, trying to get a million things done at once… lacking so much focus… and with constant, useless distractions. Who is in? HOLLER! haha
“Basically, the name of the game is quality over quantity. Because in a world with infinite information and opportunity, you don’t grow by knowing or doing more, you grow by the ability to correctly focus on less.”
There are three goals to the Attention Diet:
- Correctly identify nutritious information and relationships.
- Cut out the junk information and relationships.
- Cultivate habits of deeper focus and a longer attention span.
The Physics of Spirituality by Nassim Haramein: In this talk from Mindvalley University in Tallinn, Nassim Haramein and Vishen Lakhiani talk about the science of the near future, delving into topics such as wormholes in space, time and space travel, and the consciousness that’s present all around us.
Book Recommendation: Burning Woman by Lucy H. Pearce
Burning Woman is a breath-taking and controversial woman’s journey through history— personal and cultural—on a quest to find and free her own power from Amazon bestselling author Lucy H. Pearce.
Uncompromising and all-encompassing, Pearce uncovers the archetype of the Burning Women of days gone by—Joan of Arc and the witch trials, through to the way women are burned today in cyber bullying, acid attacks, shaming and burnout, fearlessly examining the roots of Feminine power—what it is, how it has been controlled, and why it needs to be unleashed on the world during our modern Burning Times.
Burning Woman explores:
- Burning from within: a woman’s power—how to build it, engage it and not be destroyed by it.
- Burning from without: the role of shame, and honour in the time-worn ways the dominant culture uses fire to control the Feminine.
- The darkness: overcoming our fear of the dark, and discovering its importance in cultivating power.
This incendiary text was written for women who burn with passion, have been burned with shame, and who at another time, in another place, would have been burned at the stake. With contributions from leading burning women of our era: Isabel Abbott, ALisa Starkweather, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Molly Remer, Julie Daley, Bethany Webster, and more.
