Lunar Astrology by Shakti Carola Navran

The summer Solstice on June 21 is marked by the Sun stepping into Cancer which symbolizes the height of summer. Springtime was full of challenges, so we all hope for a better summer.

The equinoxes are powerful shifts of the seasons and the flow of energy. These shifts change how we relate to our environment and how our personal energy flows. With the Sun and Mercury in Cancer we will be turning our attention more towards the inner world of needs and feelings. These planets in Cancer will help us to be self-conscious enough to nurture and care for our own self as well as others.

New Moon at 23 degrees Gemini at 12:43 pm PST, June 13: The Wisdom of Connection

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. This New Moon is in Gemini, the natural communicator, story teller, student and teacher of the zodiac. Gemini loves to learn and experience the different perspectives and ways to look at life. Interaction and polishing your communication skills with other people should be interesting and entertaining. Involve yourself in your community, get out, and try new things. Parties and social events are on the agenda, but besides awakening the inner social butterfly this is also a chance to become more aware of how your mental filter is really creating your world. Your outer world is created by your perception! Mercury, the ruler of Gemini is in the watery sign of Cancer and connects us to deeper levels of intuition and unconscious dimensions inside us. With that our emotional intelligence is invited to thrive and connect the head and the heart deeply.

Mercury is also what we call Out of Bounds and with that stretches our mind into unknown and unseen possibilities. This Mercury wants to break the old frame of mind, the rules we usually define ourselves with and becomes the archetype of the genius and rebellious spirit.

All in all: If you get into the FLOW of these month celestial energies you are consciously living in a world full of possibilities, new beginnings and with a fresh view towards life. Enjoy!

Full Moon at 6 degrees Capricorn, June 27, at 9:52 pm PST: The Wisdom of Maturity
With every Full Moon a certain archetype is coming into the forefront of our consciousness…
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.

With a strong Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn right now, we are revisiting areas in our life which are not working or flowing. With Saturn we always get the choice between dealing with the hard stuff, facing reality, making hard choices and doing the work needed or… we are confronted with blockages, fears, resistance, depression, low energy and angst. So Saturn asks: What would you rather deal with?

I have said it before and I am still a big believer in the personal place of power where we are walking our talk to initiate true transformation; to be the change we want to see in the world. The change and contribution we can make to the bigger picture and morphogenetic field of consciousness is taking responsibility for things we can change in our circle of life.

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.

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.
