As we pass into July, the last quarter moon finishes the month and heads into the new moon which begins next week. The last quarter is good for finishing projects that were begun earlier in the lunar phase. Making plans comes the week after.
The Cardinal Grand Cross has been highlighted due to the sun transiting Cancer, which lasts until the third week of July. The four signs involved in the Grand Cross are Cancer, Capricorn, Libra and Aries containing four oppositions.An indefinable tension in the air has created a trigger point that feels like crisis is looming around every corner. Because of Cancer being one of the signs involved in the Cardinal Grand Cross, the end of June and most of July is rife with trigger point situations full of tension. The net two months are a little less stressful.
One example of the Cardinal Grand Cross is the ongoing revolutionary crisis throughout many nations. Though the focus is in the middle east with its revolutionary activity, the economy in the states is rife with financial stresses. This configurationhasn’t occurred since Thomas Aquinas posted his doctrines on the cathedral doors hundreds of years ago. The manifestation goes the full gamut from spiritual matters to economic concerns.
Expect energy to pick up as the new moon approaches. In the meantime, set aside time to take a break.
The Moonsigns of the day describe a general mood for everyone. These days need not match anyone’s Sun Sign to be effective. The moon casts an emotional effect that affects everyone.
The times are modified depending on the hemisphere. If the Moon sign and the Sun sign match, it’s usually a perk.
Colors for the day synchronize with the moonsign mood, and are good colors to wear on the specified days. These are also good for color meditations on the coordinating days.

Taurus – pink, pale blue & green, reddish brown, dark tan

June 30, July1
Cancer – light gray, soft yellow, white
This weekend starts out with a stay at home frame of mind. Saturday is a different story. A home and family focus predominates. Cooking and brewing are good on these days. Beauty treatments are also favored. Any family activity turns out successfully.
Gardeners: It’s close enough to the new moon to plant annuals, and other above ground crops. Water (if necessary,) fertilize or transplant.
Leo — red, orange, yellow, royal blue
Leo dominates the weekend. It’s a good time to ask for favors, have parties, and be dramatic. A good period for signing contracts, or asking for favors.
Gardeners: take a last chance hack at weeding, as this is a great barren sign and the moon is in the last quarter, which at this time is somewhat prohibitive to new growth.
