Mercury is ingressing into the sign that rules the moon, Cancer. Mercury will then go into Leo, retrograde in Leo, and then come back into Cancer stopping at 23.27 degrees before moving forward again. If you have any planets from 23.27 to 29.59 Cancer then they will get a triple dose of Mercury’s medicine. While Mercury is in Cancer communication becomes more emotional. It might be harder to control your emotions, but maybe that’s a good thing.

New Moon at 12 Gemini Monday, June 3, 2019 3:01 am PDT / 6:01 am EDT
This new moon is a time for powerful breakthroughs. These breakthroughs may occur through communication since this a huge time for communication. This is the perfect time to make connections with people, especially people you may not talk to often. Set your intentions! During a new moon we may not be able to see our path towards our intentions clearly, yet so this is a time to trust the process of intention setting.
This is a new moon of big dreams, big goal setting. But keep in mind when we envision big dreams we sometimes have to trim back the layers and that big dream may change and evolve as it comes into fruition. This new moon has us looking for tangible manifestations of our goals and we can be stubborn and abandon them if we aren’t seeing the proof. Don’t let that happen. Although we may ache to see the finish line there’s still work to be done to get where you need to be. Discernment is the key to this. Are you wanting to see things right now because it’s time, or just because you believe it should be time? Don’t allow impatience and pride to interfere.
This is a big time for communication. Reach out to people, especially those you may have lost contact with but who you keeps talking about getting in touch with. Also look into that mirror and reflect on how you’ve been talking to yourself, or neglecting yourself. It’s time to reach out and speak kindly to yourself too.
Be on the lookout for signs and messages that can come through walking in nature, conversations about mathematics/money, your intuitive gut feelings, and conversations you have with people, especially spiritual and metaphysical conversations. The exchange of information can lead you to new horizons. Ideas and plans can spark from these exchanges. Mercury ruler of Gemini is charging information and communication so solutions can be found more easily and seeing possibilities becomes more apparent to you.
During this new moon we find ourselves seeking that which is deeper. Deeper relationships, deeper communication, deeper purpose. This is helping guide you towards your potential and your goals. You can get frustrated easily because of stubbornness and being stuck on a thought or desired outcome. Let it rest, let it be. You need to focus more on letting that stress dissolve. It’s a great time for meditation and freedom of flowing thought. That is where answers and solutions will be found. They won’t be found when you get stuck in your own head. That way will only cause headache and delay.
On this new moon ask yourself “are my actions aligned with what I say I most desire? Am I living my truth? Am I living my towards my desired goal?
The moon is waning crescent today in Aries – a good combination for decisive consolidation, swift completions, and conserving only what’s necessary. Solve problems and don’t seed new ideas🌘 ♈Masculine Fire 🔥 Sign
The Waning Crescent Moon 🌘 means that less than half of the moon is illuminated and signifies surrender. Aries brings a fearless attitude to help shake old problems, and free yourself from everything that makes life uneasy. The waning last quarter /slither of this moon cycle is important to really assure that you release what doesn’t serve you anymore.
The Moon turns full on May 18 at 5:11 PM EST. The Scorpio Full Moon calls us to our destiny and visions. Asking you to work towards your dreams and bring them to fulfillment. Whatever sets your soul on fire, focus on setting those plans in motion. The Scorpio full moon is going deep within our subconscious and dredging up all you have put on hold, sat idle on and telling you to trust the process and work towards your goals. Deal with those challenges you face in life instead of continuing to put them on the back burner, especially where relationships are concerned. It’s time to repair and heal, or resolve and move on. It’s time to clear and release toxic feelings, behaviors, cycles and thoughts.
It’s time to let go of what no longer serves you. Let go of old habits that hold you back from your dreams and goals. You need to trust your intuition more. This time will bring mental clarity and breakthroughs with relationships and projects. Remember that relationships are a two way street that require investment and care. This may be a time for revisiting and reprogramming past beliefs and bringing them into the present moment and rewriting your thoughts and attitudes concerning them.
This is a perfect time for personal development and introspection. Full Moon in Scorpio creates the need to dive into your feelings as deep as possible. Your desire for meaningful conversation and relationships is more prevalent now. Shallow relationships and talking about the weather do not satisfy you, as you seek meaning and purpose.
This is also a time of joy and passion because it’s a time for sorting out the old and letting it go while reclaiming your utmost dreams and being given the push you need to get back on the path to making them into reality.
“A BLUE FLOWER MOON? Although a Blue Moon is commonly defined as the “second full Moon to occur within a single calendar month,” this is not the traditional meaning of the term. Originally, a Blue Moon was the third of four full Moons to occur within one astronomical season.
According to this definition, May’s Full Flower Moon is a Blue Moon this year! This is thanks to the timing of the March full Moon, which occurred on the same day as the Spring Equinox, and the upcoming June full Moon, which occurs just a few days prior to the Summer Solstice, making the May full Moon the third full Moon in the season of spring.
The four full Moons this spring are:
Full Worm Moon: March 20 at 9:43 P.M. EDT Full Pink Moon: April 19 7:12 A.M. EDT ***Full Flower Moon: May 18 at 5:11 P.M. EDT <-– Blue Moon Full Strawberry Moon: June 17 at 4:31 A.M. EDT ***************** ***HONG KONG time : 05:11 AM, May 19, SUNDAY***” The Old Farmers Almanac
Both the Buffalo and Taurus are symbols of abundance and all the gifts of the nature. And our capacity to receive, be grateful and enjoy our many blessings. The thing we some times take for granted.

Especially in nature!
A new moon also symbolizes New beginnings and intention setting. Remember to set your intentions at this New Moon!!

Set them on paper and then send them out into the Universe with no ego attachment or fear of them not coming true.
Believe in the loving and caring energy of the Universe, and that it is here to help and guide each and every one of us 🧡
Tonight’s Waxing Crescent is a simple reminder that we don’t have to be full or finished to shine brightly

The waxing crescent moon encourages positivity and faith, pushing you to stay optimistic and believe in yourself and your goals.
The waxing crescent is building up strength and intensity, signifying the sprouting growth of the seeds you planted. This is a great time to start new projects, sign contracts, and come up with the BIG ideas (unless it’s during mercury retrograde)
This is the perfect opportunity for meditation and inward reflection. Visualize your desires and believe in their validity and ability to become reality.
Step outside your comfort zone, be creative, use your imagination and breathe life into your dreams. Focus on self care and self respect.
