New Moon in Cancer ~ June 28-29, 2022

My June 2022 Forecast notes:

June 28 New Moon in Cancer, 10:52 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a big aspect day with the Sun/Moon point square Jupiter in Aries. Venus sextiles Jupiter, and Mars sextiles Saturn. Neptune stations retrograde until December 3. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon echoes such a large gathering of players: “A GROUP OF RABBITS DRESSED IN HUMAN CLOTHES WALK AS IF ON PARADE.Dane Rudhyar‘s KEYNOTE provides a positive way to focus our energies at this time: “The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.”

Because the New Moon point closely conjuncts Black Moon Lilith, the dark energy of this New Moon hits home in an especially intense way. Dark doesn’t always mean “bad.” Seeds germinate in the dark, as do deep soul processes before they see the light of day.

We most often associate Black Moon Lilith with her more negative aspects: trauma, sexual abuse, Mommy Dearest, miscarriage, infanticide, hysteria, Jane Eyre’s Mad Woman in the Attic, rebellion, autoimmune reactions, hot flashes, and Baba Yaga. A balanced Lilith brings Faery Godmother, “Dark Goddess,” and Women Who Run with the Wolves type energy: strong, magical and deeply feminine empowerment. In order to access these parts of Black Moon Lilith, we need to honor the wisdom of our bodies — the biofeedback that arrives in the form of visceral reactions to people, thoughts and life events. When we make peace with our inner Wild Woman, she brings her beauty, creativity, and raw power into balance with passion, authenticity and true intimacy.

Black Moon Lilith is the one who hides behind this New Moon, while “A GROUP OF RABBITS DRESSED IN HUMAN CLOTHES WALK AS IF ON PARADE.” Dane Rudhyar expands on this Sabian Symbol of Cancer 8°:

KEYNOTE: The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.

This rather strange symbol points to what is essential in all first attempts at developing consciousness and furthering and furthering one’s growth through association with those who have already reached a superior evolutionary or mental level. Every seeker looks for an “Exemplar.” The religious mystic speaks of “the Imitation of Christ.” In Japan the music student sits in front of his teacher playing an instrument, and carefully imitates his every gesture.

The New Moon/Black Moon Lilith’s square to Jupiter in Aries urges us to assert ourselves in bigger ways. Jupiter wants us to have more courage and willpower to step out of our Cancer shells. Finding others who’ve done what we feel led to do helps us to imagine pathways forward, even into new territory. With Venus in Gemini sextile Jupiter, the power of love, artistry and self-esteem assist this process. Authentic adornment, creating a kind of “avatar” or “Glamour” can help us to step into a bigger version of ourselves. This goes beyond “fake it ’til you make it.” Rather, we project the hidden part of ourselves into the world ahead of us, and we gradually solidify our enchanted vision.

Neptune stationing retrograde helps us to connect the not-quite realm with the here and now. The ruler of dreams, mystics, spiritual inspiration and the Collective Unconscious turns inward until December 3, allowing us to incubate our dearest hopes and dreams. The Witch’s Pyramid comes to mind: “To Know, To Will, To Dare, To Keep Silent.” Mars sextile Saturn guarantees that work is being done. Even if we don’t yet see tangible results, these will come. We can draw inspiration from those who came before, but we must apply ourselves in ways that work for us.

Practical magic requires discipline. When we commit to becoming more of our authentic Self — when we align ourselves with a Higher Power — magic flows through us and around us. We become the magic, and we can do this even on the darkest night. Instead of pulling rabbits out of a hat, they parade around us.

I’ll leave you with one of my favorite passages from The Velveteen Rabbit:

“’Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.’

“‘Does it hurt?’ asked the Rabbit.

“‘Sometimes,’ said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. ‘When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.’

“‘Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,’ he asked, ‘or bit by bit?’

“‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”

― Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit

Happy Solstice!

Wishing everyone a beautiful Solstice — whether Midsummer like I’m celebrating, or Midwinter Down Under! Some garden shots to greet the day:

These lilies bloomed right on time to go with the daisy centers, just as I imagined they would.

The Robinhood roses love their new cedar mulch, and the combination smells heavenly.

This stone sits as a placeholder in an area where I can’t decide what to plant! David just happened to have it on hand for just such an occasion.

From my garden to yours: Happy Summer Solstice! The Wheel of the Year makes another fateful turn. Blessed Be and be the blessing. ❤

Multiple Timelines

This wants to go up again.

Laura Bruno's Blog

Multiple timelines are in effect. Not everyone is on the same trajectory, so tend to your own reality. Pray for discernment to follow the best path for you. This might look and feel very different than the path of those around you, whether in person or online.

Multiple options exist — some of them full on dystopia, some with moments of sorrow but also new levels of joy and regeneration. Creativity is as — or even more — important than consciousness, at this juncture. What kind of story are you “writing”?

To each their own.

Many will abdicate their creative power and get swept away by someone else’s narrative. This, too, is choice. Do your best to choose wisely — for you. Just know that choices exist.

Love and Blessings ….

Garden Update: Purples, Whites, Yellows and Magenta

Each day brings subtle and vibrant changes in the garden. This week shifted the purple spotlight from chives, sage, irises, and giant alliums to salvia and clematis. The backyard garden’s gone a bit nuts in its abundance:

That trough bed is overstuffed but looks like it will produce well. I’ve got a dwarf tomato plant, basil, two different types of amaranth, purple mustard, radishes, carrots, peppers, zucchini, some unknown squash, sugar snap peas, yard long beans, cucumbers, sunflowers, various greens, radish, nasturtium, celery, zinnias and soybeans in there. I’m sure I’ve forgotten something. Some of these are nearing the end of their lives, while I succession sowed other seeds that are just tiny sprouts right now.

The lilies, echinacea and hyssop next to the trough will flower when summer gets going. Right now, dianthus and clematis wow with pops of color amidst the edibles:

For once, I’m glad to have part of the garden tucked behind the shed. I goofed! I bought plant starts for personal sized butternut squash, and for some reason, I thought the plants would also be “personal sized.” Joke’s on me: those squash plants are on the move! It doesn’t look good, but you can only see when you get close. I added makeshift trellis extenders to catch the vines trying to spread all over the lawn. In another week or so, that crate and those extenders will be covered in green.

Behind the first bed, you can see the white trellis has not gotten any sweet potato vine action. They’re not too happy back there, but the garlic, mustard, sunflowers, and lettuce are thriving. I keep telling those sweet potatoes, “Hey, if you grow UP, you’ll get more light. Stretch, baby, stretch. You can DO it!” But so far they haven’t. We’re supposed to have some 97(!) degree days soon. Maybe those sweet potatoes will console me for all the lettuce that wants to bolt.

Up front, I’m loving pops of white throughout the garden. These don’t show up well in photographs, but the arugula flowers, spirea blossoms, and chamomile make me so happy! The daisies give an idea of how bright the whites can get. I think these look like sunny side up eggs:

The “yolks” should match the lilies behind them once they bloom. The chamomile showed up a little against the evergreen and salvia. I’m not sure the mini evergreen to the left is supposed to be that color, but it complements the yellow centers.

The sedum surprised me with so many yellow blooms this year. Here you see it in front of button flower that echoes the form and color of flowering chives:

In addition to purples, bright whites and yellows, magenta yarrow and dianthus add so much vibrance to the front yard:

I have multiples of most plants because the eye likes to dance around the garden, seeking repeated colors and forms. It’s hard to choose which shots to share, but these bring a little of my garden to you. I hope some of the joy and relaxation transfer. If you were local, I’d give you lettuce, but virtual visitors get flowers. 🙂

Full Moon in Sagittarius ~ June 14, 2022

My June 2022 Forecast notes:

June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, 7:52 a.m. Eastern US time. Known as the Strong Sun Moon, Rose Moon, Honey Moon or Strawberry Moon, this is also the first of three Supermoons, making it appear extra large in the sky. This Moon point suggests good fortune and sweet reward for those who dance to the beat of their own inner drum. Pray for guidance, and trust your intuition to guide you well.

I don’t know what to make of this, but it’s so precise I need to mention it. The June 14, 2022 Full Moon occurs on Donald Trump’s birthday and closely conjuncts the Full Moon that happened the day he was born. It’s actually in the very same degree as the Full Moon on June 14, 1946. The Sun-Moon axis in 2022 closely aligns with Donald Trump’s natal Sun-Moon axis. However you feel about him, this June 14, 2022 Full Moon carries some of his signature.

Some people will find that horrifying, while others find it comforting. Regardless of personal feelings about Trump, the Sabian Symbol for the Full Moon point in 2022 and 1946 is fortuitous:

PHASE 264 (SAGITTARIUS 24°): A BLUEBIRD PERCHED ON THE GATE OF A COTTAGE.

KEYNOTE: The reward which meets every effort at integrating into a social environment for those who remain true to their own selves.

The bluebird is a symbol of happiness, but also it refers to what one might call a spiritually oriented mind – to which the color blue relates, especially when a ‘bird’ is mentioned. A cottage is normally a part of a community, and the implication is that its inhabitants are well-adapted, either to the life of the community, or to their more or less isolated togetherness.

This is a fourth stage symbol, and it suggests that the essential technique for successful living is the development of a consciousness in which peace and happiness dwell. There is also a hint that GOOD FORTUNE is going to bless your life.

In addition to good fortune, the 2022 Full Moon also offers healing. Mars conjuncts Chiron at 16 Aries. The Sabian Symbol for this conjunction point is:

PHASE 16 (ARIES 16°): NATURE SPIRITS ARE SEEN AT WORK IN THE LIGHT OF SUNSET.  

KEYNOTE: Attunement to the potency of invisible forces, of nature.     

It implies a call to REPOTENTIALIZATION. What this means also is the process of “becoming like a little child.” 

That last line recalls Matthew 18:3-6 where Jesus says to his disciples: “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name, receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believes in me to sin, it would be better for that one to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”

“Becoming like a little child” feels easier at this 2022 Full Moon, as Mars conjunct Chiron activates deep healing of childhood wounds — helping us to reclaim our own childlike nature and identity.

Mars conjunct Chiron also activates mama bear energy to protect her cubs. Aside from Prince Andrew, the clients of Jeffrey Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell have not suffered public identification or consequences. We’ll see if this Full Moon brings any more of that sordid empire to light. We might also learn more about what really happened in Uvalde.

Saturn in Aquarius sextiles the Full Moon point and trines the Sun. These are harmonious, supportive aspects. If the Lord of Karma (Saturn) acts on behalf of humanity (Aquarius), we may finally see some justice. It might arrive as poetic justice or divine retribution. Schadenfreude could run high. In any case, this Full Moon will stir up healing issues around children.

Neptune in Pisces squares the Sun-Moon axis, suggesting that all is not as it appears. Full Moons bring things to light, but we will need to clear our spiritual vision in order to see through Glamour and distortions. At least two major timelines exist right now. Smoke and mirrors try to convince us the negative is much stronger than the positive. Spin, spin, spin! Yet behind the lies, sits A BLUEBIRD PERCHED ON THE GATE OF A COTTAGE, singing our GOOD FORTUNE. Do you choose El Mundo Bueno or El Mundo Malo?

At the time of the Full Moon, Venus sits halfway between Uranus and the North Node in Taurus. This Venus spot closely conjuncts a collective destiny level triple conjunction that activates in late July-early August. On June 14, the Goddess of Love links the revolutionary (Uranus) with collective destiny (North Node). In the last week of July through the first week of August, we’ll feel Mars, Uranus and the North Node triple conjunct within a degree of the June 14 Venus point. This triple conjunction is a rare and highly volatile transit. With focused intention, we can use this Full Moon’s Venus to infuse the upcoming transit with the highest vibration of Love, Light and collective evolution.

We can collectively intend Nietzsche’s “chaos that births a dancing star,” rather than “burn it all down” riots and color revolutions. This chaos that births a dancing star ties into the Full Moon conjuncting both asteroid Varda and the Galactic Center. Not to be confused with the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, asteroid Varda travels far out in the trans-Neptunian Kuiper Belt. Varda is known as “the star queen” or “star kindler” from J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth cosmology, and the Galactic Center acts like a birth canal.

I actually included the Nietzsche reference before I noticed the triple conjunction of Full Moon, Galactic Center and Varda. Here’s the full quote: “One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” Finding the conjunction confirmed this Full Moon’s mystical — and fertile — potential!

Mia Feroleto and Chief Henry Red Cloud Interviewed by Abby Martin

This is a disturbing but important post. Though difficult to fathom, some kind of karmic reckoning will take place one way or another. The more of us who recognize and shift these energies, the less need there will be for all of America to experience this level of occupation and destruction.

I can only say with a tearful and compassionate heart that I, for one, am deeply sorry for the actions of aggressors at the Wounded Knee massacre. We cannot change what happened in the past, but we can hold accountable the current Board Members at the Barre Museum. We can insist on the repatriation of human remains and sacred artifacts. “Just following orders” is no excuse. We must each face the demons in our own hearts and minds, and find the power to move forward in new ways, beyond the victim/abuser cycle.

You can find more information about the 130 year history of this struggle here.

Thank you to Mia and Chief Henry Red Cloud for continued activism, and thanks to Abby Martin for having the courage to conduct and air this interview. The Barre Museum has zero contact information available, and I’ve been shut down through ordinary means of finding a way to express public demand for change. For now, we can hold the situation in prayer and do whatever we each feel led to do behind the scenes. Prayer, Reiki and magic are often more powerful in these situations anyway.

Just know that we are in a VERY karmic time in the US right now. These kinds of issues matter more than most people realize. Whatever and however you feel led to do, please do. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.

Quick Garden Update

Mostly photos with little commentary today. The main thing I want to share is how easy it is to sneak edibles into what seems like a decorative garden. 🙂

kale, mustard, arugula, lettuce, garlic and marigolds
flowering chives and sage, kale, lily, garlic and zinnia

Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me

Today’s post is, in some ways, a continuation of my Sleeping Bear Dunes and Birthday Owls post. I’ll begin with my dream journal recap of Karen’s dream. She has graciously allowed me to use her name here. You’ve already encountered her in the Two of Cups Equinox Portal post and the Queen of Wands Imbolc Portal post. If you’ve read those posts, you’ve gotten a peak into her journey, and you can see the synchronicities and joy begin to unfold in magical ways.

Fast forward to today’s dream journal recap:

6/3/2022

“Karen’s Dream of Owl and Me”

Yesterday afternoon, client Karen (whose North Node conjuncts my Venus) told me she keeps forgetting to tell me about a dream she had. She rarely recalls her dreams, and to her knowledge has never dreamed about me. In her dream, she and I stood looking at an owl. When the owl opened its beak and mouth wide, I pointed to it and said, “Look, it makes a perfect ‘o’.” 

She tried to describe the symbol to me, because it was really an ‘o’ with points. I asked her to draw it and she sent me a drawing, then a photo of a Kentucky agate portal with “the right swoop if you make the sides a bit rounded.” She has her little witch/Queen of Wands portal I painted her now walking towards that portal. (It’s a slice of the Kentucky agate, and you can slightly see through it.)

I texted back, “Very cool to all of this! Especially the portal. I will have to ponder your dream. Thank you for sharing it. So basically, I pointed to the owl and said it was making a perfect O? Was it a baby owl?”

She replied, “It was not a baby owl. We were looking at an owl and it opened its mouth wide, and you made that comment. Now I’m not sure if there was any interaction or if we were just observing it. 

“Now [I’m] doubting myself because it wasn’t an o as in round, but it [m]ust have been a perfect symbol. Maybe some Rune that sounds like oh?”

I told her I would ponder this because nothing jumped out at me. Awoke around 3:55 a.m. just before David’s alarm went off. I realized, “It’s a UFO. Turn the owl mouth 90 degrees and it’s a flying saucer shaped UFO. An owl with open mouth gives a message about UFO’s.”

I emailed Karen so as not to wake her up: “Turn the dream symbol on its side and it’s a UFO flying saucer. This connection is central to Mike Clelland’s research, including the book I am in.” Then I included owl and alien emojis. I’m supposed to post about this. She has also been to Suttons Bay and the owl store. Apparently, there’s a spot where people hike down and often can’t get back. Not sure what she meant since this was the end of our session.

Fell back asleep, and I got more downloads for my July 2022 Forecast. The precision of highly charged astrology transits hitting the US in July is insane. No wonder I have such a feeling of massive shift. From start to finish — it’s not just the Mars-Uranus-North Node conjunction. That’s like the fireworks finale to a month of fireworks — literal and figurative.

END of dream journal.

After writing up the dream, I asked Karen: “Can I post about this without using your name, and if so, may I include the photos and your texted description of the dream? If not, no worries on either account. I just got the sense I was supposed to document this on my blog for some reason.”

She replied: “Sure. You can do anything you want. I don’t even care if you mention my name if you feel led to. And very cool connection you made which reminded me that I saw either a really futuristic plane or a UFO last week. It was black and looked sort of like a fan shaped shield and I saw the top of it like it was going straight up. Then it went forward and was so thin it disappeared. I hear you… planes don’t do that. But I do live near an air force base. I’m going to look into that some more and see if I can find a picture.”

The exact moment her reply came through, I emailed her two images, with the following message:

I’m imagining the outline of this, including the beak:

and this, minus the legs:

I love that the image comes from a site called: https://www.dreamstime.com/royalty-free-stock-photo-silver-metal-flying-saucer-ufo-harsh-white-desert-planet-landscape-landed-image35526575   … The pinterest owl image also originated at “dreamstime.com” 

Karen replied: “That’s the mouth!”

To which I replied, “I was just emailing Mike Clelland about this when your message came through ‘That’s the mouth!'”

Our morning continued with interwoven synchronicities. Mike’s in a different timezone, so he hasn’t yet flown into the swirling vortex — at least not by email. 🙂

Here are the images Karen texted me last night as a follow-up to our phone conversation:

She and I went back and forth about how much of her name to include, and she added about the possible UFO event: “What I saw might have been the stealth bomber. But it’s still an anomaly because it’s not stationed here.”

me: “Lots of anomalies these days!”

Karen: “So true.”

I went about the rest of my morning, tending the garden, riding the exercise bike. Then I received another email from her with a subject line “FYI.” She sent it from her iPhone: “Just passed a car the license plate said area 51B.”

me: “LOL, I better write this post soon or it will keep growing!”

June 2022 Specials

As always, I intuit what to offer when, based on dreams, requests, blog comments, emails and themes that arise during scheduled sessions. This month has a new offering, and I hope people take advantage of it.

“How much cash should I keep on hand?”

“Do I need weapons?”

“How do I magically protect myself and my property?”

“What if there’s another lockdown or the economy crashes?”

“Do you really see a positive way out of these times?”

June 2022 Forecast and Second Quarter North Node Horoscopes

JUNE 2022 FORECAST

June begins with several days of Mercury in Taurus square Saturn in Aquarius and sextile Neptune in Pisces. The Saturn square arrives with a clipboard, receipts, and denial-breaking news. Neptune’s sextile implies a bigger, more hopeful story. The effects of these aspects get magnified with Mercury stationing direct on June 3 and Saturn stationing retrograde on the 4th. Expect communication and understanding about structures, authority and group consciousness to undergo tangible shifts from this point on.

2022 is filled with lots of “hurry up and wait,” followed by intense astro fireworks. We’ve already survived a nodal shift from Gemini/Sagittarius to Taurus/Scorpio, the moment of the first of several exact US Pluto Returns, Jupiter conjunct Neptune in Pisces, and a crazy potent eclipse season. Enjoy the leisurely pace in June, because July’s explosive. If things feel a bit dull this month, catch your breath and count your blessings.

June 3 Mercury stations direct in Taurus. The past three weeks encouraged deep dives into how we understand, negotiate and navigate our worldview. After reviewing ideas and the details for implementing them, things can finally move forward. If you’ve held off signing contracts or starting something new, use whatever you gleaned from delays or miscommunications. The Saturn square brings extra insights to troubleshoot future plans. Pay attention: “mix-ups” often become divine detours.

June 4 Saturn stations retrograde in Aquarius until October 23. This period from early June to late October urges us to troubleshoot potential weak links, unstable foundations, and cultural trigger points. Recognizing possible trajectories allows us to course correct before things fly off the rails. Innovation can bring wonderful solutions, but sober analysis prevents many an idealistic disaster. We learn to balance radical ideas with tried and true solutions. Think best of the old informing the new. Beware of calls to “burn it all down.” Focus on inspired cooperation that honors the wisdom of those who’ve earned respect.

June 11-12 Venus conjunct Uranus in Taurus. A time of exciting and impulsive investments, purchases, and romantic encounters. Pay attention to spontaneous intuitive insights about relationships, especially if these somehow liberate you from prior limitations. Not all risks are worth taking, so do pay attention to red flags or déjà vu. This can be an auspicious time, but don’t bet the farm! Uranus brings surprises, both good and bad. If you can’t exercise temperance, at least find ways to diversify exposure. Positioning yourself to pivot during times of sudden change offers liberation, too.

June 13 Mercury re-enters Gemini. The Messenger returns to his home sign. What information and understanding arose since May 22, and how can you move forward from that new perspective? Pay attention to rapid fire intuition, micro-adjustments, compromises and short trips with a potential to change your life.

June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, 7:52 a.m. Eastern US time. Known as the Strong Sun Moon, Rose Moon, Honey Moon or Strawberry Moon, this is also the first of three Supermoons, making it appear extra large in the sky. This Moon point suggests good fortune and sweet reward for those who dance to the beat of their own inner drum. Pray for guidance, and trust your intuition to guide you well.

June 21 Sun enters Cancer, 5:14 a.m. Eastern US time. Summer Solstice arrives in the Northern Hemisphere, with Winter Solstice Down Under. Use this seasonal shift to expand your garden and/or shore up hearth and home. Change is coming. For this next month, strategize and complete any lingering to do’s that increase flexibility, resilience, safety and security.

June 22 Venus enters Gemini. Between now and mid-July, we’ll feel more inclined to socialize, flirt, and engage in witty conversations. Curiosity runs high, as does our ability to sweeten deals during tough negotiations. Difficult conversations flow easier now, as the Goddess of Love brings a touch of grace to even the harshest message. A good time for positive affirmations and improved self talk. If your mind tends to chatter, fill it with self-esteem enhancing words and phrases. You can do the same for friends and lovers: easy, breezy pops of pixie dust.

June 28 New Moon in Cancer, 10:52 p.m. Eastern US time. This is a big aspect day with the Sun/Moon point square Jupiter in Aries. Venus sextiles Jupiter, and Mars sextiles Saturn. Neptune stations retrograde until December 3. The Sabian Symbol for this New Moon echoes such a large gathering of players: “A GROUP OF RABBITS DRESSED IN HUMAN CLOTHES WALK AS IF ON PARADE.Dane Rudhyar‘s KEYNOTE provides a positive way to focus our energies at this time: “The tendency in all forms of life to imitate higher forms as a stimulus to growth.”

How June’s sky weather affects you will vary, depending on your entire natal chart, but your North Node Horoscope transcends monthly sky events. That’s because your North Node reveals what your soul came here to do. By midlife, the soul starts longing and pressing us to live our true purpose. At first, it whispers through intuition. Then it knocks a little louder through “coincidences” and external events. When not heard and honored, the soul’s longing can show up as health crises, marriage or work issues, or wondering “is this all there is?” If you feel a need to reinvent yourself, following North Node guidance helps you do that authentically — for you.

Unlike generic Sun Sign horoscopes, which ignore so many other aspects, following North Node guidance will always lead you in the right direction. Doors open, healing happens, relationships improve, and life gets more magical. This quarterly column will help you tap into your personal North Node Mojo. When you start living your North Node purpose, we all win, because you not only begin to light up your own life. You light up the world.     

You can find your North Node sign here which is often different than your Sun sign. If you’re right on the cusp, consider both possibilities or book a reading for more clarity.

SECOND QUARTER 2022 NORTH NODE HOROSCOPES

ARIES NORTH NODE: April 2022 emphasizes healing for Aries North Node natives. Things you’ve wondered about for a long time could finally make sense and allow you to start moving beyond old patterns. May highlights relationships. As always, you’ll need to balance your own needs while resisting the urge for co-dependence. Your faith and confidence expand as Jupiter enters Aries on May 10. He’ll remain in Aries over five months, until October 28th, when he returns to Pisces until the end of the year. Pay attention to lucky breaks, financial windfalls, and opportunities to do something BIG. Your sign’s ruler, Mars, enters Aries on May 24. From late May-July 5, you get extra energy and drive. A good time to take action on anything that ignites your passion.

TAURUS NORTH NODE: The Sun shines on Taurus North Node natives from April 19-May 20. You’ll be extra impacted by the powerful New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30. With the North Node in your sign, you can expect deep insights and inner and outer course corrections. Pay attention to coincidences that seem like signs. They are! May brings opportunities for breakthroughs, but Mercury will be retrograde in Taurus from May 22-June 3. If things feel like “Hurry up and wait,” just go with it. You don’t need to push. Trust that everything will come together at the perfect time and pace. If your past issues flare around the May 16 Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio, don’t overreact to that either. You got this. Use June to recharge your batteries.

GEMINI NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 asks you to do old things in new ways. Your perspective flip flops, and that is A-OK. You can “master” hard energies by opening yourself to paradox. Instead of chaining yourself to prior expectations, embrace the freedom to go with an ever evolving flow. Mercury, your sign’s ruler, enters Gemini on April 29 and goes retrograde in Gemini from May 10-22, when he re-enters Taurus for awhile. Mercury returns to Gemini with more information and better deals on June 13, followed by Love Goddess Venus on June 22. You’ll get the most from this quarter by following where synchronicity and curiosity lead. You’re awakening to new levels of communication, including from animals, crystals, and telepathic downloads. Don’t work too hard, Gemini. Distractions and play time are good for you.

CANCER NORTH NODE: You need downtime: puttering around the house, taking baths, and nurturing yourself with TLC. It’s OK to narrow your inner circle and focus on what matters most to you and your closest loved ones. You’ll find safe passage in this crazy world by tending to your own vibration and learning to accept help from unexpected quarters. You’re so good at running the show, but sometimes you just need to curl up in your jammies and binge watch Rom Com’s with a bowl of popcorn. Allow the watery energies of April to wash over you, and then take May to process the cleanse. By Solstice on June 21, you’ll be re-balanced and ready to face the world again. Commit to a more sustainable flow of giving and receiving. Your next cycle begins with the June 28 New Moon in Cancer.

LEO NORTH NODE: A surprisingly intense quarter, considering nothing’s in your North Node sign. Intense can be good, provided you lean into it. Eclipse Season squares the Leo-Aquarius nodal axis: a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Taurus on April 30, followed by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Scorpio on May 16. Squares generate friction, which leads to pearls under the right circumstances. With the collective nodal axis in Taurus-Scorpio, these events initiate even greater shifts. If it feels time to release something old, just do it. Letting it go on your own terms feels better than life ripping it away from you. These cosmic course corrections open pathways for new, more aligned connections and activities. If you embrace the Second Quarter pressure to change, you’ll position yourself well for Third Quarter breakthroughs.

VIRGO NORTH NODE: Wow, have you got a chance to realign and reset! Love energies abound, with supportive, destiny level energy from the collective nodal axis. Whenever you feel overwhelmed, focus on small details and daily rituals. April will feel surreal, but resistance is futile. If you open yourself to the cleansing energies, you can wash away lifetimes of old crud. Virgo loves cleanliness and order. Once the waters recede, you can reground yourself in a new physical and emotional landscape. Things are not as they’ve appeared. Take time to observe your new surroundings. This quarter’s Mercury Retrograde from May 10-June 3 will redo your worldview. The first part presents challenges to your communication and understanding, but the later part supports reintegration of old and new information. A breakthrough quarter!

LIBRA NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 is a time of gathering energy and messages for later in the year. Libra North Node natives get activated by the energies, but in subtle, rather than obvious ways. Be mindful of burnout. You don’t need to run the fastest race in order to succeed. You’ll move further by mixing activity with rest and camaraderie. Share your victories with others of like mind, but don’t broadcast every move. Keep intentions close to your vest, because things are percolating. You don’t know where or how they will wind up — and that’s a good thing! This is not a time to charge ahead. It’s a time to gather energy and wait for the right timing and energetic support. Pay attention to little signs and synchronicities, especially ones that involve other people. Patience is a virtue worth your time and energy.

SCORPIO NORTH NODE: Quantum leaps are possible for those willing to align with Destiny. With the South Node transiting through your North Node sign, you’re 180 from most of the world, but hey, the world’s insane right now. Up is down, inside’s out. Face the darkness: it will bring you Light. The powerful eclipses on April 30 and May 16 activate Scorpio North Node natives in extra potent ways. Issues of intimacy, security and regeneration arise. Seize this chance to drop the victim role. You are so much more than the stories you keep telling. Reclaim your power, so your body, mind and spirit can be reborn. April allows you to wash away anything that no longer serves. You’ll find it easier to release those things you’ve held onto out of fear or habit. Enter the Void. It’s so much fuller than you think!

SAGITTARIUS NORTH NODE: Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Sagittarius North Node natives. The inner work you’ve done for the past two years continues to bear fruit. Your only direct activation occurs on the June 14 Full Moon in Sagittarius, but this whole quarter brings opportunities your way. Pay attention to the things you love, but also to opposition. Contrast helps you gain more clarity about that which you do want. You’ll find your True North by following where passion leads. Consider taking — or teaching — a class this quarter. You have lots of tools, but you benefit from higher learning. Dabbling is soooo South Node Gemini! You’ll enjoy honing your expertise. If you haven’t traveled anywhere this year, remedy that ASAP. If can’t physically go somewhere, you can get lost in an epic film, novel or documentary.

CAPRICORN NORTH NODE: With all the supportive energy coming from Pisces and Taurus, Second Quarter 2022 feels magical for Capricorn North Node natives. Finances and relationships flow, and it feels easier to bring spiritual visions into tangible reality. On June 21, the Sun moves into your South Node sign, Cancer. Pay attention to sudden insights about old contacts, patterns and ways of being. If these arise, it doesn’t mean you backslid; rather, it’s an opportunity to lay (fully) to rest that which no longer serves. Your hard work over the past few years neutralizes nostalgia for “the way things were.” You realize you can appreciate the old without hiding behind it. A new world awaits, and Cappy’s lead the way by actively imagining and anchoring the New Earth frequencies.

AQUARIUS NORTH NODE: Eclipse Season squares the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and Saturn continues his 2.5 year stint in Aquarius — even longer if you count his initial foray there from March 21-July 1, 2020. The transiting nodal axis also continues to square the Aquarius-Leo nodal axis, and this friction urges a need for destiny level change. You’re being asked to move from the personal ego (Leo South Node) to group consciousness. Whenever you get hung up on individual relationships and goals, you benefit from stepping back. How do sticky karmic ties inhibit you from expressing your zaniest, least conventional, most innovative and authentic self? How can you practice healthy non-attachment? This isn’t the same as rejection, but it allows you to complete your mission in a much greater process of Human Evolution.

PISCES NORTH NODE: One of the biggest transits of the year occurs throughout April in your North Node sign. Your sign rulers, Jupiter and Neptune, conjunct in Pisces for the first time in 166 years. Venus also spends much of the month in Pisces. These transits continue the sweeping (yet nebulous) destiny level shifts you’ve undergone since Neptune first entered Pisces in April 2011. Emotions range from huge satisfaction to world weariness to poignant nostalgia to safe passage directed by forces beyond your comprehension. As surreal as April feels, May might feel a bit edgy with squares from Gemini and Sagittarius. At the same time, you’ll continue to receive supportive energies from Taurus and Capricorn. Use this quarter to release rigidity and imagine a beautiful new life materializing from beyond.
