If you cling to one pole, you become afraid of totality. You cannot weep totally, how can you laugh totally? That’s why the belly laugh has simply disappeared from the world. You don’t know what a belly laugh is – when you not only laugh, but the belly laughs. The whole body vibrates, not only you, but from head to toe everything laughs. That laughter is mad because you are totally in it.
Look at the absurdity of the world: only a madman can be total. You are afraid, because you know well that you have suppressed tears so if you laugh deeply, tears may come. And it happens. You may have noticed many times, if you start laughing deeply immediately you feel tears are coming.
You feel confused – why are tears coming? Tears are coming because you have been suppressing them, and you have never allowed a totality. And now you laugh totally: the suppressed needs expression, the suppressed flows, the suppressed seeks a moment; the door is open – it flows.

Dear Ones, so many of you have the idea that if you are going to create change it has to happen all at once. But the reality is true change is a process of unfoldment, a blending and coming together of many different elements, many of those happening behind the scenes in preparation of when it all comes together in a tangible way.
You can participate by making small choices that support what it is you wish to achieve or experience daily. Those small choices may be staying in faith and trust, using creative visualization, surrendering, asking for help from your guides and helpers, immersing yourself in the energy you wish to experience more of, or any other action that incrementally moves you toward your goal.
It does not need to be complicated at all but the more consistent you are, the greater the benefit. Staying surrendered, fully present, and using your appreciation as a feedback tool to the universe helps tremendously to continue to steer your flow to your next satisfying co-creation. ~Archangel Gabriel

Physical Life consumes most of your time. Every day, you eat. Many days, you commute. You sit. You walk. You stand. You talk on the phone. Physical Life makes its demands on you. And you fulfill these demands pretty much without argument. You wash your face. You put on your shoes. You tie them.
The Spiritual is also always with you. I am always with you.
Now, if time is not true, how does time have anything to do with the Spiritual and its development?
You are right to ask the question. In the physical realm, you make lists and check them off. You feel you’ve gotten somewhere.
The Spiritual Realm is not like that. The Spiritual Realm isn’t made of doing. What action can you take in the Spiritual Realm? What is the procedure? You may read books on growing spiritually, pray day by day — do everything you can think of to raise your consciousness, yet, how can you measure your progress? How much of your noticeable Spiritual Life do you really have that much to do with. You would hurry the Spiritual along if you knew how. You don’t know how. There may not be a how. You know of no way to whip yourself into shape spiritually just like that.
You can vow. You can apply yourself, yet, effort of Will doesn’t seem to pay off as much as you would like. You would come closer to Me every day if you knew how. Alas, time spent on Spiritual Growth does not necessarily equate with Spiritual Growth. You know of no determinant. Often you don’t know what claims you can make. You don’t know what the answers are. You’re not sure about what the questions are either.
You may not be looking for great rewards. Sometimes all you want in Life is a little Peace. At the same time, you would like to develop spiritually while you are on Earth. Sometimes you may feel you haven’t gotten anywhere – or anywhere far enough.
If you did actually grow spiritually, how would you know anyway? There is no yardstick with which to measure. Who can say?
Suffering seems to visit all. No one you know is excused from pain or disappointment. You don’t always feel you know where you’ve been or where you’re going, if anywhere.
You may feel your heart expand. You may come closer to Me, yes. Then another day, you may not find Me anywhere.
You want signs now. Sometimes all you want is to get through a day or two without your heart’s being wrenched and cut in two.
How do you find evidence of growth of your Spirit in the physical world? You seek yet perhaps see it not. Or you may see, and, then, you then the next day, you may see it not.
Sometimes you think that Trust and Faith are the most you have, and, yet, you are not sure how far Trust and Faith go.
You would take Me at My Word if you could. Of course, you would, yet every day you tremble before what Life may hand over to you in My Name.
Beloveds, you may sometimes feel that you love TV more than Me, and yet, and yet, you know you cannot compare Me to anything, for I am the Vastness of the Vast. You may feel I hold out Glory to you, and yet Glory is too often out of sight and out of reach. It is I you crave most of all, for I offer you Greatness.
You really don’t have to struggle or beg for what is yours. Yet, it does not always seem to be yours around the corner.
Just the same, you invite Me to you as I invite you to Me. Life is not inconsolable, nor am I unreachable.
You and I, We are already One. Our Oneness already is. Trust in Me, Beloveds, and trust in yourself – your Self as it seeks and yearns leads you closer to the Far Seas that are calling you.

Prone to killing plants? It’s time to turn a new leaf and not only improve the air quality of your home, but your plant watering skills as well. Improve your home’s air quality with some of the easy-to-care-for plants below.
These plants remove various toxins from the air such as formaldehyde and xylene. Though this plant does require a little upkeep, all you have to do is trim the dead leaf tips off every once in a while when they start to turn brown. Spider plants are to be watered occasionally with room temperature water, and to be kept in indirect sunlight in a bright room that is 55-65 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure the soil you buy for your spider plant drains well and that it is placed in a drainage pot. The Spider plant produces flowers that are usually white in colour.
Another low-maintenance plant that’s actually perfect for apartment living, a Dracaena removes toxins like benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene. However, if you have any pets like dogs or cats, stay away. If your pet consumes this plant, it could make them sick. A Dracaena plant is best kept in a drainage pit with soil that drains well. For care, put in bright to moderate indirect sunlight and water it when the soil is dry to the touch. Place in a room from 65 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit. If a Dracaena plant looks droopy or seems to be yellow in colour, this means that it is over-watered or there is not enough drainage.
Among other popular indoor plants, the Peace Lily eliminates toxins like ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. To keep your Peace Lily alive, store in indirect sunlight or even a shady area for maximum growth. Year round, you’ll have to keep the soil moist and keep the plant in a room above 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If your Peace Lily isn’t blooming flowers, it is not getting enough sunlight. Remember, no direct sunlight = happy Peace Lily. Avoid keeping a Peace Lily in a cold environment because it will not grow. Root rot is common among Peace Lilies, so make sure that you invest in a pot with good drainage.
Are you prone to both killing plants and getting sunburnt? Then owning an Aloe Vera plant is perfect for you. These plants remove a toxin called formaldehyde from the air. Keep your Aloe Vera plant in a drainage pot along with soil that drains well. It is best grown in indirect sunlight or artificial lighting. Water your Aloe Vera plant deeply but not too often.
Clean the air in your home and cure sunburn at the same time! The healing properties of Aloe Vera can do wonders. Once your plant reaches maturity, you can start harvesting the leaves for its cooling contents.
A flowering plant by large, Orchids remove a toxin called xylene. When it comes down to watering upkeep, this plant is the best for those who are forgetful because Orchids only require water every 5-12 days, depending on the type. Orchids require shallow planting and should not be left sitting in water. They grow best when placed in indirect sunlight and in a room that is from 65 to 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on the type of orchid, adjust the room temperature accordingly. For the record, most Orchids are best kept in humid environments.
Removing a few toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde, trichloroethylene, and xylene, the Snake plant, also known as the Sansevieria plant, can live in drier conditions than other plants. When watering, check every two to three weeks to see if the soil is dry. If it is, then water your Snake plant. Only use room-temperature water to water the plant. Not only does this plant require little sun but you can also let your Snake plant soak up some vitamin C from fluorescent lighting. Keep the plant in a room between 40-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
With so many plant options to choose from, you’ll be wanting more than one! “Go Green” with a plant air purifier and forget those pesky plants that always seem to die on you.

Holotropic breathing is a powerful tool that can be used to unlock other states of consciousness, work through past traumas, heal anxiety and depression, gain wisdom, and so much more. There are many who believe that this is the only way to reach these realms of consciousness without taking psychedelic substances such as psilocybin, DMT, ayahuasca, and the like.
History of Holotropic Breathwork
The scientific method and alternative medicine aspect of Holotropic Breathwork was first discovered by Stanislov and Cristina Grof during the 1970s and 1980s. They both studied medicine and psychoanalysis at the Charles University School of Medicine in Prague, Czech Republic. From past experiences, they knew that the most powerful way to induce these higher levels of consciousness was through the use of psychedelic substances; however, there are some potential drawbacks and concerns that come along with the use of such substances. The Grofs then developed a safe and effective way to achieve comparable states of consciousness, using one’s breath alone.
In 1980, Christina Grof founded the Spiritual Emergence Network (SEN) to spread the wisdom she had gained and help the many individuals who, like herself, had been struggling with their own emotional conflicts. Stan and Christina travelled all over the word to spread what they had learned in regards to Holotropic Breathwork and Transpersonal Psychology.
What Does It Involve?
The process of Holotropic Breathwork is usually conducted in a workshop or class setting, though many instructors will also offer private sessions as well. Generally each person is paired with a partner; one is the ‘breather’ and one is the ‘sitter.’ The sitter is there to provide tissues and assistance to the bathroom, and to hold space for the breather, as this tends to be an intensely emotional process. The sitter is there to be a caring, supportive, fully present person to provide the breather with the feeling and comfort of being in a safe and loving environment.
The breather lies down on a mat and covers up with blankets, then the breathwork facilitator will lead a simple relaxation exercise to begin. Then, the instructor will turn on some music and the breathwork begins. The breather then will begin to breathe faster and deeper, as facilitated by the instructor. Many suggest using a circular breath technique, which means no pauses between the in and out breath, so it is a pretty quick, non-stop breath. The breathing becomes deeper and more rapid as time progresses. This can be somewhat challenging to maintain, so often the sitter will remind the breather to keep breathing faster and deeper.
After about two hours, the breathwork part of the session comes to a close. Afterwards, some instructors encourage the participants to draw a mandala to describe their experience, and then everyone gets a chance to share what came up in a loving, supportive, non-judgmental environment.
What Can the ‘Breather’ Expect?
There is an extremely wide range of possible experiences one can have using this method of breathwork. This range can include deep feelings of joy or serenity, deep meditative states, re-experience of traumatic births (often people will feel pressure around their temples, which is believed to be from those babies born with the aid of forceps), tension, pain, warmth, cold, crying hysterically, body convulsions, numb or tingly hands, and many, many more. For me personally, I experienced deep relaxation one time, and another a sense of tremendous pride in myself for everything I had been able to overcome, which brought me to tears.
The non-ordinary states that the breathwork induces can be categorized as:
3. Perinatal (Birth Process)
4. Transpersonal (beyond the body and personal identity)
It is important to not try to direct the experience in any particular way, but rather let it guide you where it wants to go. Whatever comes up is coming up for a reason, and the unconscious mind will take you wherever you need to go heal, release, and transform.
Who Shouldn’t Participate in Holotropic Breathwork?
Breathwork is contraindicated in any of the following cases: cardiovascular problems, glaucoma, pregnancy, recent surgery, epilepsy (some cases are okay if approved by healthcare practitioner), asthma, some mental illnesses, and those struggling with addiction.
How Can You Attend a Holotropic Breathwork Session?
If this seems like something you would like to try for yourself to work through any blockages, past traumas, or other issues, just try searching for Holotropic Breathwork (Your City) in Google and see what comes up. This method of healing is becoming increasingly popular and easier to find, as people have been continuing to experience tremendous, sometimes life-changing, benefits from these sessions.
How incredible is it that we can utilize modalities such as this — no substance required except for our own breath — to achieve and unlock higher states of consciousness and let go of what may be holding us back in life? Simply amazing.

Over the past week, I’ve been watching the History Channel’s America’s War on Drugs mini docu-series. To my surprise, the History Channel was shockingly honest about the CIA’s involvement in the war on drugs and the massive political propaganda campaigns that went along with it. The series criminalized the CIA and the government, and rightly so, discussing their involvement in drug trafficking, production, and testing — on both volunteers and unwilling patients — and even murder.
Part of the first episode honed in on the CIA’s top-secret program that is now declassified, MK-Ultra, which involved sexual and physical abuse, drug testing, hypnosis, mind control, and other types of torture. However, the only aspect that the History Channel discussed in their MK Ultra overview was the role that LSD played.
The CIA designed LSD with a Swiss manufacturer as part of the MK Ultra program in hopes that they could force people to take it and convince them to do unspeakable acts, all of which they’d forget the following morning, once the drugs wore off. Testing started with unwilling participants being lured into a hotel room by prostitutes, who would then slip the drugs into their drinks. A CIA agent would then watch the test subjects as they tripped out behind a wall of the hotel room.
The particular project within MK Ultra that the prostitutes were involved with was called Midnight Climax. This eventually turned into full-blown brothels in the U.S. run by the CIA, whereby the women working there would lure men into them, but instead of receiving sexual favours, were unknowingly drugged and then observed by CIA agents.
The CIA then started to test willing patients in lab settings, observing their reactions to LSD and asking them questions. To their disappointment, instead of helping them control their patients’ minds, LSD actually freed their minds. Despite the propaganda campaign on the war on drugs, whereby the government was telling people they were against all drug use, it was the government who brought LSD over and put it in the hands of the public.
Though the History Channel provided a fairly accurate depiction in the role LSD played in MK Ultra, it left out all of the brutal torture, sexual abuse, and other immoral tests performed on these patients. MK Ultra wasn’t an unsuccessful program, either; CIA agents were able to successfully mind control many victims, many of whom were children. Of course, the History Channel failed to provide these haunting details in their TV program.
A 1975 document addressed to the President stated: “The drug program was part of a much larger CIA program to study possible means for controlling human behaviour. Other studies explored the effects of radiation, electric-shock, psychology, psychiatry, sociology and harassment substances.”
The TV program itself was about drugs, so it’s understandable to a certain degree that they left these details out (you can watch the MK Ultra clip here). Plus, the History Channel is owned by A&E, which is owned by Walt Disney, so perhaps they didn’t want to be associated with discussing such subjects.
However, the History Channel went on to create a page on their website titled the “History of MK Ultra,” which does not portray the full picture of what exactly happened inside of the CIA’s MK Ultra program.
So, What Did the History Channel Leave Out About MK Ultra?
The CIA-sanctioned program ran from the 1950s until the mid-1970s, though many believe that aspects of the program still exist today. The experiments were intended to identify drugs as well as procedures to be used in interrogations and torture in order to weaken victims and force confessions out of them through the use of mind control. Though the TV show lightly touched on the severe mental abuse participants endured, it completely left out the physical and sexual abuse involved as well as the other gruesome details of the experiments.
Most of the documents regarding MK Ultra were destroyed by the CIA, which isn’t surprising given the nature of the experiments. It wasn’t uncommon for unwilling patients to be forced into sensory deprivation or electroshock therapy. Of course, the test subjects reacted negatively, with many ending up permanently comatose.
Anton Chaitkin explains in his essay “British Psychiatry: From Eugenics to Assassination” under the MK Ultra section: “Cameron would drug his victims to sleep for weeks on end, waking them daily only to administer violent electric shocks to the brain. . . . Patients lost all or part of their memories, and some lost the ability to control their bodily functions and to speak.”
It is known that there were deaths within the experiments, and I’m not just referring to the test subjects. There were also mysterious murder/suicide situations, like when biochemist Frank Olson, who worked on MK Ultra test subjects, allegedly committed suicide, though the medical examiner found his injuries to be consistent with a homicide.
Chaitkin explained: “For the CIA, Cameron tested the South American poison called curare, which kills a victim while simulating natural heart failure.”
Many other claims have come to light regarding the destroyed CIA documents, thanks to whistleblowers who have come forward who were involved in the actual experiments. A 1954 document allegedly stated that two hypnotized women were forced into conflict, with an agent telling one of the women to “fly into a rage and shoot her,” which she allegedly did.
A hypnotist involved in the experiments came forward, admitting he hypnotized and forced “young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him.” Other MK Ultra test subjects were allegedly put through sleep deprivation and were made to eat their own feces and drink their own urine. Other details mentioned are discussed in our CE article here.
Chaitkin also went on to detail the funding of the MK Ultra experiments, explaining the elite’s role in it, including a “Masonic charity” and a 33rd degree mason. The elite’s involvement with MK Ultra and associated programs runs deep, and some of the more underground practices inspired by MK Ultra still occur today.
Ted Gunderson, a former FBI special agent and head of their L.A. office, worked to uncover years’ worth of information on high-level pedophilia, sexual abuse, and satanic rituals performed by the elite, some of which related to MK Ultra. You can read more about that in our CE article here.
Gunderson worked alongside Brice Taylor, a sex slave involved with an extension of the CIA program MK Ultra. You can watch her testimony here:
Though MK Ultra ended in the 70s, many whistleblowers have come forward stating that a classified program called Monarch Mind Control (MMC) continued on, which included many children as test subjects. MMC is noted as a mind control technique that combines occult rituals, psychology, and neuroscience to create an alter ego within a desired subject. It is believed by many that once fully programmed, monarch slaves are then used on demand by an elite group to carry out rituals, performances, deliver messages, etc. to achieve a desired outcome.
In a 1992 speech, well-respected author and psychologist Dr. Cory Hammond delved deeper into the subject of MMC, shedding light on how exactly the process works. Here are some key excerpts from his talk:
When you start to find the same highly esoteric information in different states and different countries, from Florida to California, you start to get an idea that there’s something going on that is very large, very well coordinated, with a great deal of communication and systematicness to what’s happening. So I have gone from someone kind of neutral and not knowing what to think about it all to someone who clearly believes ritual abuse is real. . . .
What they basically do is they will get a child and they will start this, in basic forms it appears, by about two-and-a-half after the child’s already been made dissociative. They’ll make him dissociative not only through abuse, like sexual abuse, but also things like putting a mousetrap on their fingers and teaching the parents, “You do not go in until the child stops crying. Only then do you go in and remove it.” They start in rudimentary forms at about age two and a half and kick into high gear, it appears, around six or six and a half, continue through adolescence with periodic reinforcements in adulthood.
You can read more about MMC in our CE article here.
Infamous comedian and actress Roseanne Barr has also made some shocking statements, alluding that Hollywood and the entertainment industry are dominated by MK Ultra to this day. You can hear what she has to say in this CE article here.
Former child start Corey Feldman has also echoed Barr’s words, sharing his own experiences of abuse within the industry. He explained:
“I can tell you that the number one problem in Hollywood was, and is, and always will be pedophilia. That’s the biggest problem, for children in this industry. . . . It’s all done under the radar . . . it’s the big secret. I was surrounded by them when I was 14 years old . . . they were everywhere, like vultures.”
“There was a circle of older men that surrounded themselves around this group of kids, and they all had either their own power or connections to great power in the entertainment industry.”
Though the CIA sanctioned program, MK Ultra, may have ended in the 70s, it’s clear that the cycle of ritual, abuse, and mind control techniques that were involved with the experiments has not. Please keep in mind that this article only skims the surface when it comes to the subject of the government and the elite’s involvement with mind control and programming, so I encourage you to do your own research!
Some great places to start include our website, Vigilant Citizen (particularly this article on a leading American fashion model/MK Ultra victim), the CIA government website, and testimonies from MK Ultra and Monarch whistleblowers who have come forward (whether they’re test subjects, agents, or scientists).

Guess what?! I have a surprise for you; you do not have to tolerate or condone negative behavior. Yes, it can be a positive thing to look at the other person’s perspective, however, you need not put up with name calling, mental, emotional or physical attacks.
As always you have a choice. You can choose to stay in an ‘attempt’ to change a person, but that will most likely never happen. Be it from a lover, friend or acquaintance; change starts from within and you may never be that catalyst. Be loving to yourself first and the rest will follow. ~ Creator

One should laugh and one should weep also. Laughter and weeping are two banks – balance is needed. If you really laugh, you will also weep. And what is wrong with weeping? Tears are beautiful.
If you have laughed, if you have laughed deeply, tears become very, very beautiful. They carry something of the laughter, because deep down the banks are one, they are not two. On one pole laughter, on another pole tears; one pole smiles, another pole cries, but deep down they are joined together. If you have laughed totally, you will weep totally, and both are beautiful. Totality is beautiful. But if you cling, then you can never be total.

Sure, Beloveds, have a degree of solicitousness for others, yet don’t overdo it. You don’t have to outdo everyone else in this Drama of Life you play in.
Dear Ones, it is not a tribute to you to see anyone as less than you. This is not courtesy from you nor is this to be your fulfillment. Serve in order to serve others.
As for concern for yourself and your sensitivity, you are not a hothouse flower that requires extraordinary attention and special favor. You are a hardy rose.
Yes, by all means, enjoy Life. Let enjoyment be a by-product of your Life. To enjoy is a priority, yet you are here for more than your own personal refreshment.
Be good to yourself, yet forgo pampering yourself. Go for a massage or whatever, yet you, yourself, as an individual, are not the be-all and end-all of your Life. You are greater than how you feel at any given moment. The purpose of your Life is grander than you may have ever thought. Have a bigger view now. You are part of a Grand Creation.
The aim of your Life isn’t for you to pick flowers all day. It is also your privilege to give to others from your heart some of the flowers you pick, not by decree of the world but by your own decree.
There is more to you than meets the eye.
Goodness and mercy do not mean that you are to be over-solicitous. You do not give all of yourself away. I am an advocate of service, yet you are not to sacrifice. You have nothing to prove. You have everything to Be.
In the natural progression, you would not be thinking in terms of giving or not giving, you understand. Nor is Life a directed action to prove your ability to give unto others. Your ability to love and your ability to give are not meant to be thought-out efforts. Loving and giving are not machination. Your ability to love is not set out in order to make you big man on campus, you understand. A good deed unnoted by the world is still a good deed.
To come from your heart does not mean you are maudlin. Nor does coming from your heart mean you must think Life through and measure your deeds. Live more than you measure.
Have no regrets. You don’t have to live your Life according to rules that others impose. You are not a cipher. Count yourself in. Serving Me and serving others do not represent giving your Life away. Nor does serving Me mean that you must hold your Life tightly to you. Live your Life.
Living Life isn’t something to measure or debate. Fulfillment doesn’t come from others’ approval of you. Enjoy approval, yet don’t require pats on the back any more than you welcome being criticized. You will grow on your own accord as well as at My behest.
In Life, it is not always clear what is the best action for you to take. You don’t have to be all this and all that. You don’t have to be the fairest of all, nor do you have to be a middle-of-the-roader.
The Great Spiritual Ones simply led their lives. They were not high and mighty. They just lived. They lived Who they were. They served by being themselves. They were not robots of Goodness, you understand. Never were they artificial. They were nothing but themselves. Nearer to God were they, yet they may never strived to perform Greatness. Greatness fell to them. You might say Greatness was their duty, yet they were driven by love. All Great Ones are the Truth of themselves and none other.

We are having a New Moon in Cancer on June 23rd/24th, depending on your location. New Moons are the beginning of a new wave of energy influencing the upcoming month. However, the astrological configurations at this time have a stronger influence over the following two weeks.
Neptune recently went retrograde, on June 16th, and this will last until November 22nd. It is in retrograde motion roughly 40% of the time, and generally, throughout the bulk of its duration, its effects aren’t as direct as the retrogrades of Mercury, Venus, and Mars. Rather, its effects are felt most strongly during the transitional period — which we are currently in — as the planet slows down and changes motion.
In recent weeks you may have been pulled back into something Neptune-related to help you shift the way you express its energies to serve your personal growth and development. Now is a time to consider how you will work with this planet, which could require some sort of action, revisitation, or reflection.
Neptune is the planet of compassion. It also rules over dreams, psychic receptivity, imagination, inspired creativity, and divinity. It is our connection to subtle energy and the spiritual realms. It is magical and etheric. As the higher octave of Venus, it could even represent soulmates for some people. Neptune has dominion over visual arts such as film and photography, but can also represent dance, music, and poetry.
Negatively expressed, it is associated with illusions, delusions, flakiness, and deceptions. It could be fantasizing about something or a relationship and not seeing things for what they really are. It can make us unrealistic, confused, and ungrounded. It also rules avoidance, escapism, addictions, drugs, and alcohol.
Cancer: Emotional, Nurturing, Domestic, Protective
This New Moon occurs a few days after the Sun entered Cancer, which always happens on the Solstice, when the Sun’s rays are directly over the Tropic of Cancer. The twelve-sign zodiac that we use is divided based on the relationship between the Earth and the Sun’s rays. The December Solstice occurs when the Sun is aligned with the Tropic of Capricorn and the Equinoxes occur when it is aligned with the Equator, which is where Aries and Libra are initiated.
Cancer is associated with nurturing, emotional bonding, vulnerability, and security. It is about family, comforts, and domestic life, and can be very protective with all of those things. Being ruled by the Moon, it is the most emotionally fluctuating sign. Symbolized by the Crab, Cancer feels most comfortable in its “shell,” which can be the home or whatever one is most familiar and comfortable with.
New Moon Conjunct Mercury in the Same Sign, Venus Trine Pluto
Mercury, the planet of the mind and communication, entered Cancer a few days before this New Moon and is also aligned with it. The next few weeks will be a period of communicating with feeling and sensitivity. We may be more thoughtful and emotionally considerate in the way we express our words to others. Our minds may be more focused on the way things make us feel.
At the time of this New Moon, Venus is in a tight trine to Pluto, which will be exact just under six hours afterward. It will be strongest during the days around the New Moon, but will still be relevant for the whole month. For some people, this can be a great or even empowering time for finances or regarding the value of something in our lives. We may experience a deepening in our relationships, whether in our love life or with our friendships. Love can be passionate, transforming, and regenerating.
Mercury Conjunct Mars in Aspect to Neptune and Jupiter, Then Opposing Pluto
Mercury is moving toward Mars, which is also in Cancer, and in the lead-up to this alignment, between June 25th-28th, they will both be interacting with Neptune and Jupiter. Neptune involved can make this a highly intuitive time and great for directing our thoughts and our actions toward anything creative, compassionate, selfless, or spiritual. We may feel more inspired and need to act on what we have been imagining.
However, with Jupiter also involved in a square, we may overdo or overextend ourselves while losing focus. We can more easily overlook details and be impractical, and so will need to be cautious of that. The combined influence of Jupiter and Neptune is good for anything that involves marketing, promotion, or spirituality.
