Everything on this earth is in a continuous state of evolving, refining, improving, adapting, enhancing, and changing.
You were not put on this earth to remain stagnant.

Solar Eclipse | Summer Solstice
excerpted from Pam Younghans
New Moon 0 degrees Cancer 11:40 p.m. PDT June 20th, 2020
“This new moon certainly deserves our attention. It coincides with the Summer Solstice that takes us into the months in which we want to be outside, free to play and feel our selves as one with the elements. In our memory banks are the carefree days that we enjoyed as children—no more school for a few months. Adventure ahead! Warmth, sunshine and creating from moment to moment our reality.
Also during this new moon there is a solar eclipse the significance of which is:
“Astrologically speaking, they (eclipses) speed up time: They open new doors by slamming others shut, so we often find abrupt and sudden shifts occurring during eclipses. Though the shifts can be jarring, they can help us by speeding up the inevitable.”
~Aliza Kelly Farager
An annular eclipse, also known as the ring of fire occurs when the moon is at apogee or furthest from the earth. Therefore when it crosses the sun, it appears smaller than at perigee, does not fully obscure the sun and leaves a circle of solar light that demarcates the moon—is the only time we can ‘see’ the new moon. Symbolically, this new moon focuses our intent upon not only the obvious opportunity for new beginnings but also that which lies deep within the known world; what lies in the center of that blazing light of the seen.
The third aspect relating to this new moon is that at 0 degrees Cancer it conjuncts the world axis at 0 degrees of the Cardinal signs. Starting off, best foot forward, leadership role from the all important sign of Cancer which is all about feeling, nurturing and nourishing. The qualities of ‘mother’ that we typically, inherently know to give the basic support an individual requires to navigate life from an emotionally mature perspective.
Another significant aspect in this new moon chart is an exact inconjunct (150 degree aspect) from Saturn at 0 degrees Aquarius to the sun/moon conjunction. Here Saturn in Aquarius will focus our actions and reactions on what serves community rather than specifically the individual. How we determine to continue moving forward must be for the ‘good’ of all. It doesn’t work to leave anyone behind or in a position of want. We consider how those steps towards creating freedom for self will actually result in greater freedom for all. It occurs by letting go, inhabiting the change and creating according to the deep peace ever present.”

Crystals for the New Moon in Cancer
Green Fluorite | Particularly healing to the Heart Chakra, this mineral permits information to rise from the subconscious, and helps the emotional body understand issues of the heart, both current and of the past.
It enables release of emotional trauma and outworn conditioning, frees one from addictions and things that are harmful, and allows one to serve purposes of a higher good. Harmonizing the mind with the heart, Green Fluorite helps make certain one’s thoughts, words and actions are aligned with their true purpose. [Melody, 279][Hall, 131][Gienger, 39][Eason, 293][Margherita, 499][Ahsian, 160]
Iolite | Iolite helps in recovering balance, and is recommended for those suffering from disorientation, lack of motivation, chronic disorganization, and distraction. [Megemont, 96] It strengthens the resolve to take on responsibility and carry through, and provides self-assurance and endurance in adverse situations. [Gienger, 32] It is an excellent source of energy when used for the elimination of debt and the responsible management of money. [Melody, 336]
Iolite is a stone of the muses, activating the visionary, creative side of the mind, and accessing thoughts and ideas beyond the ordinary. It inspires creative self-expression through writing, song, movement and other artistic endeavors. [Ahsian, 207]
Moldavite | Moldavite is good for counteracting cynicism and connects even the most world-weary adult with the wonders of the universe. It eases away doubts, even when the cause is unknown, and calms worries about money by providing solutions not previously considered. [Eason, 284]
Carrying or wearing Moldavite in jewelry allows its energies to remain in one’s vibrational field throughout the day strengthening its effects and increasing the incidents of beneficial synchronicities in daily life. Because of Moldavite’s intense vibration, some may experience light-headedness or a lack of grounding and may need to acclimate themselves gradually to wearing it. [Simmons, 262-263]
Moldavite is a useful stone for star children and sensitive souls who find it difficult being in incarnation on the earth, and who cannot adjust to suffering and deep emotions. Placed on the heart, Moldavite uncovers the reasons and purpose for why one is here, and eases the “homesickness” for those whose origin is not Earth. [Hall, 188-189]
Moldavite is a powerful aid for meditation and dream-work, as well as increasing one’s sensitivity to guidance, intuition and telepathy, and the ability to understand messages sent from higher realms. [Simmons, 262-263][Megemont, 126]
