The June New Moon comes just after the Summer Solstice (Northern Hemisphere) while Moon is transiting Gemini and Ardra nakshatra. New Moon arrives on June 23rd at 20:31 Mountain time, inviting in powerful changes and uprooting for the waxing cycle to come.
Four planets transit Ardra nakshatra at the time of the new Moon- Mars, Sun, Mercury and Moon. The unpredictable Ketu gives his gaze, promising change and release. Mula is on the Eastern horizon. Both constellations are notorious for challenges and change. Expect shifts with support, stability and grounding. Stay rooted and grounded as much as possible. Let your pelvis be a resource for this awareness. Your lessons will come in big waves, through powerful change and release. Storms can bring great learning so pay attention to the way your storms show up and what they are here to teach you. Something important is breaking free. Let it go.
The constellation of Ardra is Rudra's domain. As the storm god, he brings power and force, potency and strength. He offers momentum, and transformational energy through the emotional body. Rudra brings big emotions- especially through grande emotional body waves, tears, anger and sadness. This energy is your power and if channeled properly, can support forceful changes- for better or worse- as well as destruction and successful attacks. The symbol of this constellation is a tear drop.
Transformation, release and instability are a powerful part of this coming cycle. Find your grounding cord and hold on. Relationships become a challenging part of this change process, but will provide much growth, wisdom and teaching. Pay close attention to the messages arriving, the mirrors you are looking at, and how the wisdom arrives. With this big release taking place, there is potential for an all new support system to replace it. As you let go of relationships and change your inner dynamic, clarify what you need in order to feel safe, grounded and supported. This is not a time to take risks or be careless. Be careful, cautious and intentional with choices and actions. Go slow and steady.
Destructive and aggressive forces are at play in the weeks ahead. Be mindful of your part in this process. Release challenging emotions in healthy, conscious ways and try not to take your challenges out on others. Take responsibility and accountability for your own feelings. Create healthy boundaries and honor your needs for safety, security, trust and stability. Find ways to get your needs met with skill and conscious awareness.

Solstice occurs on June 20th at 22:24 Mountain Time. In the Northern Hemisphere, this is the longest day of the year in terms of daylight, also called the Summer Solstice. In the Southern Hemisphere, on the other hand, it is the shortest day of the year and is known as the Winter Solstice. Solstice comes from the Latin words sol, meaning Sun and sistere, meaning to come to a stop or stand still. On the day of the June Solstice, the Sun reaches its northernmost position, as seen from the Earth. At that moment, its zenith does not move north or south as during most other days of the year, but it stands still at the Tropic of Cancer. It then reverses its direction and starts moving south again. The opposite happens during the December Solstice. Then, the Sun reaches its southernmost position in the sky - Tropic of Capricorn - stands still, and then reverses its direction towards the north. Read More About the June Solstice.
Just after the Solstice, Saturn retrogrades back into Scorpio on June 20th at 22:33 Mountain Time, returning to his enemies sign and the powerful depths of the 8th sign of the zodiac. Saturn will transit Scorpio another four months, before re-entering Sagittarius and Mula nakshatra on October 26th, for the remainder of his 2.5 year transit through this fire sign.

Creative Ritual + Tapping Meditation
Use this two part process to clear, release and transform old, stagnant mental and emotional body energies into space, opening and possibility. Start with the Tapping Meditation to clear big emotions and then move into the Creative Ritual in order to deepen your creation process and manifest more love, gratitude and nourishment into your life. Share your comments, questions and experiences below!
Use this podcast as you tap through these points:
Karate chop point (side of the hand).
Crown of the head.
Eyebrow point (above the eye).
Side of the eye.
Under the eye.
Under the nose.
Chin point (crease of the chin).
Throat point (collar bone/throat chakra).
Heart point (center of chest).
Stomach point (above the navel).
Side body (nipple line at side of chest).
Tap six to ten times on each point and just keep cycling through the points. Repeat the phrases I use aloud. Notice any thoughts, stories, memories or emotions that emerge as you tap. These are important pieces to return to, do more tapping on, as a way to clear blockages. As always, if the words I use don't work for you, change them to support your process more fully.
1) Using craypas, paints or pencils, create an image of the space you've created through this tapping meditation. What does this "space" within you feel like? Create an image that expresses this feeling using colors, textures and shapes. Allow 10- 20 minutes at minimum for image. Title your image.
2) Use your image to inspire a movement exploration. Let your body move in response to your "space" image with an intention of creating more inner awareness. What sensations emerge for you during your dance? What messages? Allow 5 to 10 minutes for this movement exploration. I encourage you to extend this time frame as you recycle this process.
3) Harvesting. In your journal answer these questions:
I am, I want, I need, I sense, I feel, I imagine.
What deeply nourishes me? What no longer nourishes me?
Where do I feel support in my life? Where do I need more support?
What am I opening to? What am I closing to?
