Greetings Divine Beings!
We’re now approaching the new moon in Cancer which is also a solar eclipse & a SUPER moon (so it’s close to earth magnifying it’s effect on us)…& as if that were enough intensity, the planet Mars is closer to Earth than it has been since 2003!
So whilst new moon in Cancer may see us wanting to snuggle on the couch with movies & comfort food in response to this intensity, it’s helpful to remember ‘in-tense’ encounters are an opportunity to accelerate our transformation. So long as we stay in the present tense & feel what’s surfacing. The more present we are, the more available we are to take responsibility & process anything that’s being triggered.
But wait there’s more! A Grand Earth Trine
This new moon eclipse will also coincide with a Grand Earth Trine…
Three planets will form 60 degree harmonious angles in Earth zodiac signs.
Saturn, the planet of structure is in it’s corresponding sign, Capricorn. Uranus, the bringer of radical change has recently arrived in Taurus (for the next 7 years awakening kundalini & consciousness through Earth changes) & both Venus, the planet of love & Ceres, the asteroid Mother Goddess of grain are in Virgo, the sign of health, sacred service & sacred space.
So this new moon may usher in more earthquakes (felt one here yesterday in Ubud, Bali) & this alignment is a call to reconnect with Mother Earth & send her your love with prayers, ceremony or sacred songs.
This is also an invitation for us each to assist with her rebirth by attending to our own health needs by restructuring our lives. When we make healthy choices it affects the quantum field of the Earth since we’re all connected. To quote Barry Manilow ‘she feels sad when we feel sad‘.
For those of you gathering in Red Tent moon lodges please be sure to do a global healing meditation to ease possible conflicts due to the close proximity of Mars & support the feminine in both men & women from being abused through unconscious reckless actions.
New Moon in Cancer
Archetypal Energy: Cosmic Mother / Grandmother Moon
Lesson: Mature through understanding the effect the cosmic cycles have on our psyche & emotions
Cancer is ruled by the moon so this new moon may drop us in some of our deeper emotions to confront how we really feel about a situation…especially around home & family, the domains which Cancer governs.
Be mindful that the lead up to new moon can elicit the shadow side of the new moon sign.
Shadow Cancer can seek emotional closeness in order to feel needed which can cause others to feel emotionally manipulated & smothered. Or living in the past through nostalgia to avoid dealing with present challenges & opportunities asking us to grow.
The strengths of Cancer we need to draw upon to gracefully traverse this 3 day window of the dark moon (before, during & after exact new moon) are:
- gathering in a spirit of community to feel held & supported emotionally
- attuning to the celestial influences to minimise emotional drama
- self care to ensure we don’t neglect our own needs
Do also be aware the eclipse in the axis of Cancer / Capricorn may see disputes between archetypal authority figures flare up with the close proximity of Mars, such as:
- custody disputes over children
- internal struggles between feelings & financial obligations
- matriarchs / patriarchs exerting power & control
- challenges with institutions versus meeting family needs
Rather than fear karma drama scenarios should such possibilities play out this is an opportunity to do things differently by seeding & affirming with gratitude how you want things to look so everyone’s primary needs are met by meditating within the cosmic womb of creation instead of reacting to external circumstances which escalates potential drama & undermines our ability to stand in our own authority.
How to Harness the True Power of Mars this New Moon
With Mars forming a challenging 90 degree square to Uranus, men & masculine dominant women may feel potentially volatile if they feel their freedom being restricted in any way.
So this is a time for women & feminine dominant men to ensure they don’t try to mother adults who are ultimately responsible for themselves or you may endure tantrums from immature adults who are happy to accept nurturing so long as demands aren’t made upon them.
Mars can evoke reckless & aggressive behaviour & Uranus can incite erratic & unexpected change so avoid potential conflict by ensuring you seek to nurture your own needs & respect the free will & boundaries of others even if you don’t think it’s in their best interest on the understanding that we learn through our experiences.
Do keep in mind Mars tends to get a bum wrap as the God of War but he’s not one dimensional as a brute who behaves badly destroying everything in sight. What we associate with Mars is the patriarchal version of him.
Pre-patriarchal Mars was the sacred warrior who had an honour code & fought bravely to defend all that’s sacred, including our Mother, the Earth.
So this eclipse may bring to a head the cost of the unconscious masculine destroying creation but it will also thanks to Uranus, the radical new reformer challenge men & masculine dominant women worldwide to take right action in defence of our Mother planet.
The close proximity of Mars may also play a role in accentuating volcanic activity within the Earth as a macrocosm reflection of so many people feeling as mad as hell & unheard about the state of play on planet Earth.
With Mars retrograde until August 27 this is an opportunity for us to each reflect on our own actions so everything we do from here on in is aligned with the values of the Aquarian Age which uranus rules.
Do take extra care on the roads as Mars being so close can play out as impulsive, reactive, aggressive behaviours & hot headed drivers.
Get Ready To Be Eclipsed by Change
This new moon eclipse is the first of 3 eclipses over the next two months, making this a prolonged window of accelerated growth if we embrace the lessons.
During a solar eclipse the moon moves in front of the sun obscuring the light of the sun. So this is a time when the dark feminine can be seen in the light of day.
Given this eclipse coincides with Cancer, evoking the mother aspect who tends to our emotional needs those who are mothering without adequate emotional support are potentially at risk or dark emotional states & destructive behaviour. So if you know any mums who could use a bit of emotional support, don’t hesitate to pay them a visit & make your own cup of tea!
Who’s Afraid of the Dark?
Solar eclipses were a time that the uninitiated feared superstitiously indicating their lack of willingness to face their fear of their dark & take responsibility for their own disowned aspects & behaviours.
Whereas Tantriks & Tantrikas who embrace the shadow as a path to wholeness would traditionally worship the dark feminine in the form of Kali Ma, the dark mother during solar eclipses. This was on the understanding she would help them to see what they’d disowned so they could reclaim more of their totality and in doing so expand their ability to love themselves & others.
Eclipses usher in unprecedented change with that starting 2 weeks prior to the date of the eclipse. Given this eclipse occurs on the North lunar node any unforeseen changes occurring have the power to change your future sense of home & family.

My Latest News
Here’s a wonderful pic captured by local photographer, Rio Helmi of Mount Agung which erupted again July 2 & whilst I can see it from my window it didn’t even disturb my sleep since I’m 1.44hr drive away.
I’m now on week two of an Ayurvedic cleanse to fire up my digestion by alleviating an excess of water / earth elemental energies (I have Sun in Scorpio (water), Moon in Capricorn (earth) & ascendent in Taurus (earth).)
Ayurveda is one of the 3 paths to enlightenment in the ancient Hindu tradition alongside Yoga & Tantra. And given the other two are central to my life it makes sense my body has responded immediately to this third path to support my body’s health & wellbeing.
So whilst I’m missing gorging on dark chocolate, cheese & my inner child isn’t happy that ice cream is off the menu I feel like I’m powering up again which is worth it.
I also had a powerful sound healing session with tuning forks being applied to TCM meridian points by local sound healer Shervin Boolorian that left me humming in such an altered state of conscious I could barely talk or walk…yes, i’m going back for more!
I’m also pleased to announce I will have my KITAS work visa permitting me to run events in Ubud, Bali this Friday, July 6 after my first visit to Singapore so if you’re in Ubud for July 13 join me for a Red Tent temple day to harness the power of this powerful portal. I’ll post details on local Ubud event FB groups & my Moon Woman page once I have my KITAS.
If you’re based in Singapore I’d be open to doing an event next time I need to do a visa run so email me if you’re interested in hosting & promoting me to do an event locally.
Thanks for tuning in, witnessing my journey & sharing my insights,
