Earlier this week may be a little hectic for some people, especially water and earth signs. This is due to the moon being void of course, which means that the moon is not currently positioned in a sign.

When the moon is void, our emotions can be a little unstable and chaotic, and we may not know how to handle them. Since this only goes on for about half a day, many astrologers will not make any important business plans.

The moon will be entering Cancer on Tuesday, June 28, at around 5 a.m., making these chaotic emotions somewhat die down.

With the moon in Cancer, people are more likely to be in tune with emotions, and may find themselves feeling more reflective. When the moon is in Cancer, we may feel more sensitive to things around us, so it’s important to find peace during this time.

The moon only stays within a sign for two and a half days, but the moon’s phase changes every night. Starting on the evening of Tuesday, June 28, it will be a new moon.

New moons are a perfect time for manifesting! This means that you can ask the universe for things you want, and a great way to do this is to write a letter which states things that you would be grateful to receive. For example, I am thankful for my abundance in wealth.

Saturn is also currently in retrograde. It started in early June and will be ending in late October, which gives us a lot of time to become in tune with this energy.

Saturn rules over restrictions and responsibilities, meaning these next couple of months are a great time for people to assess their boundaries and look within themselves to see what is holding them back.

Saturn in retrograde is all about restructuring and aligning yourself.

Now is the time to work on things you have been putting off and align yourself with your future goals.

Crystal of the Week

The crystal of the week is moonstone! This crystal can help with patience and wisdom, which will be very helpful for current moon phases. Moonstone’s are full of feminine energy, as is Cancer, and they can encourage harmony and peace with emotions.

A moonstone is also great for support in times of change, which is very helpful right now with Saturn in retrograde. If you have a moonstone, now is a perfect time to carry it around with you!
