Lunar Astrology by Shakti Carola Navran

While I am writing this, the Sun has just entered Cancer, the Summer Solstice just 12 hours away to the second Full Moon in Sagittarius. The equinoxes are powerful shifts of the seasons. These shifts change how we relate to our environment and how our personal energy flows. After the expansive Sagittarius energies had us ask many questions about meaning and where we want to go… now in July we are getting answers from deep inside while we are on this emotional journey with the New Moon in Cancer. It is the time of the year to spend more time with your family, have some holidays together or travel.

With the Sun, the New Moon, Venus and Mercury in Cancer we will be turning our attention more into the inner world of needs and feelings. All the planets in Cancer will help us to be self-conscious enough to nurture and care for our own self as well as others.

The New Moon in Cancer, July 4 at 4:00 am PST

A New Moon always starts us on a new journey for the coming months and sets the emotional tone, depending on the sign it is in.

We are starting into a new cycle of Mother Moon with an invitation to become more aware of our feelings. Our emotions are our inner guidance system to let us know if we are on the right track or heading in the wrong direction. If we ignore or stuff down our feelings we might end up with numbness or depression, cut off from a rich inner and outer experience.

Cancer is also representing the home and family we have created. In our home we can feel safe, comfortable and nourished. With the New Moon in Cancer we all can enjoy a more inward motion and make our inner life truly important.

MY SUGGESTION: Take a Mom’s day off and do something truly nourishing for yourself… make sure you give some hugs to your friends and family, go treat yourself to a massage or hang out with some friends… replenishing your oxytocin, your happy hormone.

The Full Moon in Capricorn, July 19 at 3:56 PM PST

With every Full Moon a certain archetype is coming into the forefront of our consciousness… With the Moon conjuncting Pluto before becoming full, this will be a potentially big and intense one…

As one of the earth signs, on the high end of things… Capricorn is teaching us about responsibilities, loyalty, and alignment with reality. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the archetype of the Wise Elder, The Prime Minister, the Strategist and the Father. These are all archetypes of power and maturity guiding us into a position of taking good care for others. However, on the low end of this archetype whenever positions of power are achieved, they come with a strong potential of abuse of office because of self-serving interests, as we see in politics.

I am a big believer in the personal power point of true transformation. The change and contribution we can make to the bigger picture and morphogenetic field of consciousness is by taking responsibility for things we can change in our circle of life. So instead of getting morose about the state of things in the world and our country, I choose to focus where I can be the change I want to see.

Shakti Carola Navran, evolutionary astrologer, counselor and published author: I have been giving astrological readings professionally for 36 years now and I love to do this work. To look at a chart through the evolutionary wisdom perspective of your soul adds a deeply meaningful and significant perception of yourself and your activities in your life. As a result it will give you the key of higher consciousness to align yourself with the current cosmic flow for spiritual growth. Evolutionary Astrology adds a karmic dimension and will give you the answer to WHY you are the person you are with your specific qualities, issues and challenges. It will connect your inner dots in a new and enlightening way and empower you with a higher perspective and helps to make better choices in your life. Have a look at some testimonials 1.

Skype Astrology In the 21st century one of the delightful gadgets we get to play with is Skype. I have been giving astrological readings on Skype for people all over the globe in Canada, Switzerland, Denmark, Australia, New Zealand, Tokyo, Thailand, Korea, Taiwan, Germany, Barcelona, London, and of course the mainland U.S. It still leaves me in awe that I can see you and talk to you for free anywhere on the planet that you have internet access. It seems like magic! I also do astrological consultations by phone, but in my experience, being able to see each other helps us connect better and deepens the reading. If you don’t have Skype already you can download the program for free and set up an account. If you have any questions about how to do this, let me know. If you are ready now for your astrological horoscope reading, please email me at or call me in Hawaii 808- 878 8182. I am looking forward to connecting with you… aloha and many blessings, Shakti.
