Major Themes for this week
Venus Gateway activating the Sacral Chakra on Sunday
New Moon in Cancer on Wednesday
Black Moon Lilith squaring the Sun & the Moon
This moon diaries report goes into great depth on the mythology of Lilith (the first wife of Adam), the Venus Gateway on the Sacral Chakra and the transits through Cancer season and how this is interwoven through the massive decision in the United States this week on changes to the abortion laws and the suppression of sovereignty women have over their bodies.
There is an upsurgence of the fury of women and we go through the sensitive topics surrounding rebellion, the role the mother plays in society and the rights to choose a pregnancy, birth and the responsibility of raising children. We also cover the suppression of the feminine over centuries and the impact this has had on womens responsibility as mothers, and the future of the mother to guide the boys and men towards respecting women and the harmonising of the human race.
These are such important conversations, initiated by the christian bible and male dominated politics overturning, again, the rights of women, as it has been occurring in this way for centuries.
We hope you enjoy this podcast episode and join the conversation.
Moon Weekly Themes
Monday 27 - Moon in Gemini. Gemini is the mind and we are entering the dark of the moon. Watch your thoughts and do things to get out of the mind. Take time out from social media and go into nature. Do something kind for yourself, for someone else & to the earth. Be in your garden.
Tuesday 28 - Moon moves into Cancer dark of the moon. Void of course from 12.34pm - 10pm. Window of time to get things done that you’re struggling with.
Wednesday 29 - New Moon in Cancer. This is a massive day for emotions. Plan to nurture yourself, take the day off if you can. Put a lot of space around yourself. Take a bath (find our Cancer New Moon bath ritual below). Highly intuitive and emotional time which is important to prepare for your new moon intentions. Cultivate your relationship with Black Moon Lilith.
Thursday 30 - New Moon in Cancer: New Moon Circle - setting sophisticated intentions. Not to get caught up in the pop culture of the witch or Lilith or the angry woman. Jupiter day is expanding the powerful nurturing, loving energy cancer can cultivate. Be very mindful with your intentions.
Friday 1 - Moon moves into Leo This is a wonderful day to consciously play or lighten the mood. We might see rebellions happen today, great energy for feminine leadership.
Saturday 2 - Moon in Leo. This energy carries through to Saturday... potential for protests and women in positions of power taking a stand.
Sunday 3 - Moon Moves into Scorpio. Mercury square Neptune. Things get very deep and intense.
Many moon blessings, moon women! xx

An excerpt from “The Ancient Art of Self Healing”
“If it is medically or socially required that an abortion should be performed, it should be done. We are not going to lower the status of motherhood. It is not the woman per se, it is the status of the mother which matters, and if that pregnancy lowers the mother’s status, we do not want the mother, to deliver a child. Period.
The cry of "right of life" is religious nonsense. What do you mean by "right of life"? Tomorrow the State may pass a law that every woman who becomes 24 years old must adopt a child or bear a child. They don’t want any abortions because they want their membership to outnumber that of every other religion. It is a neurotic approach, a tribal approach, and is inappropriate for more highly civilized cultures. It is no more than a ridiculous ritual.. It is a direct disgrace to women. Does it mean that tomorrow you are going to tell a woman that she cannot remain single, that she must be artificially inseminated or participate in a test tube baby? God does not place the soul in the fetus until the 120th day. There is a reason for that. Even God wants to have planned parenthood. This nonsense of "right of life" is being laid down in the name of God. There is no reason why you must bear a child if you are mentally, socially, economically, and religiously unprepared. Don’t bring anyone to this earth if you cannot handle it. It is most unrighteous. As a human being it is your responsibility to deeply search yourself to know the capacity of your nervous system, the depth of your ability to love and understand, and the degree of balance between your inner thoughts and values and their expression in your environments. If everything tabulates in the positive, then plan for a child.”
Pam Gregory - Astrologer
In the last couple of videos I've spoken about the potential Roe vs Wade Supreme Court decision, as at the Full SuperMoon in Sagittarius (sign of freedoms) on the 14-15th June, Black Moon Lilith was at the World Axis (potential for that issue to become public in a major way) at 1° Cancer, sign of motherhood. It was squared by Jupiter in Aries, expanding the emotion - possibly angrily for some - around that decision.
Then at the New Moon in Cancer on the 28th June, Black Moon Lilith is conjunct the Sun and Moon, again highlighting issues around motherhood, babies, and pregnancy. Not only is BML in the sign of motherhood but it also spends 9 months in each sign, the period of human gestation.
With the overturn of Roe vs Wade by the Supreme Court yesterday, now 18 US states have made abortion illegal. This a strongly emotional issue (Cancer) whichever way you feel about it. The symbolism around BML is wild, feminine, instinctive and utterly uncompromising, and she shares all of these characteristics with Eris. Already Mars in its warrior sign of Aries is conjunct Eris at 25° Aries, exact on the 27th, and will exactly square Pluto at 27° Capricorn on the 1st July but is already well within orb now. This is a sense of the clash between the individual's rights vs the power of the government machine. Therefore the energy will build even more intensely around this issue over the next week, as Mars is energising the symbolism of street-fighter fiesty Eris who is clashing with top-down authorities in the form of Pluto in Capricorn.
Remember also that gun laws to protect the 2nd Amendment in the US to own and bear arms were strengthened this week, with Mars in Aries strengthened by being out-of-bounds, giving it a potentially excessive or out-of-control expression.
This energy is hot and dynamic, and is leading us into another astrological peak through the second half of July and early August with a triple conjunction of Mars, Uranus and the North Node in Taurus. This may be linked to the Russian President this week announcing a new blockchain digital (Uranus) currency (Taurus) as part of a BRICS group of countries including Russia, China, India, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and others - to challenge the might of the US dollar as the global reserve currency. We are entering a fast moving and dynamic period of change. This could initiate a massive geopolitical shift.
The second exact conjunction of transiting Pluto to 'natal' US Pluto is in July, and Pluto is in the 2nd house of the country's economy and money. This is highlighted at the next Full Moon on 13th July. Potentially both this currency shift and the Roe vs Wade decision are major ingredients in terms of how the US Pluto return (a major transformation in many ways) for the US plays out, and it will continue all next year too.
Personally if you have any planets between 25° and 28° of the Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra or Capricorn) you may well be feeling intensity in some area of your life with Mars, Eris and Pluto in those degrees, and they will be emphasised even more strongly as we move into July.
Through all of this external drama, be aware but also find time to be in peace, to drop into stillness in your days, to close your eyes and just connect with your breath. As you slow and deepen your breathing, you will feel calmer in seconds. Keep taking time out in your day to do this, to keep your sense of 'divine neutrality' whatever is playing out in the wider world. Stay on your reliable Eagles' perch, make that your default position.
Both polarities are now ramping up; yes the 3D world is about to become even more colourful and dramatic, but equally we are being flooded with new light codes bringing us new information which are upgrading us in every moment. Choose where you put your focus, always.
Cancer New Moon Bath Ritual
Winter Solstice Psychic Bath
This eve of the solstice with the energy of a Pisces Moon and the releasing energy of its waning nature we are afforded an opportunity for deep reflection and connection to our psychic capacity.
As the wheel of the year turns and we drop fully into the darkness before remembering the promise of light that will follow we find ourselves searching for signs and messages of what is to come.
Make time this evening or tomorrow to pour yourself this bath and journal your gratitudes for the last 6 months followed by allowing yourself to channel wisdom and guidance for the next.
Sage your bathroom. Ask for all energies that are not in alignment with your highest good to depart. Welcome spirits, guides and guardians who can support your channeling and psychic attunement.
Begin running the bath.
Add epsom salts and Himalayan sea salt.
Choose from the following oils adding a few drops of those that you feel drawn to.
Lilac Oil— See past lives, induces clairvoyant powers.
Lemongrass— Aids psychic powers. Placing on your forehead whilst bathing may help you to make contact with spirits.
Mimosa— For night-time baths, it unlocks the door to your psychic mind.
Juniper— Used for psychic protection and purification.
Magnolia— Excellent for meditation and psychic development , peace and harmony.
Nutmeg— Promotes visions and expands consciousness.
Add the oils and any flowers or foliage you feel drawn to.
Mix in a figure of 8 holding a neutral but open mind.
Light a candle and place it on the side.
Step into the bath.
Submerge yourself, close your eyes and breath.
Gently open your eyes and gaze at the candle.
Imagine, feel or see the reflection of the flame at your third eye.
Meditate here for as long as feels comfortable, become aware of any messages, words, pictures that appear to you.
Open yourself to receiving guidance and wisdom.
When you feel complete unplug the bath and allow the water to drain away. Relax and allow all that is meant to go to go…
Save the last bit of water and any flowers. Return this to nature with gratitude once your are dressed.
And now go to bed and prepare to dream….
