The birds they sang

at the break of day

‘Start again’

I heard them say

Don’t dwell on what

has passed away

or what is yet to be.

Ring the bells that still can ring

Forget your perfect offering

There is a crack in everything

That’s how the light gets in.

From Anthem by Leonard Cohen

Tragedy is around every corner these days. Victims and mourners in Orlando are reeling from the latest massacre, while those in Paris and elsewhere try to move on from theirs. Donald Trump spews hateful rhetoric to cheering crowds while refugees starve and drown attempting to make it to safer shores.

What has happened to our world? Are we so out of alignment with Cosmic Laws that it would take a miracle to save us? We can see it astrologically, of course, as realistic Saturn squares illusory Neptune, trying to awaken us from our stupor to see the light of truth. But transits come and go, impacting us directly only when they hit our charts. Meanwhile, life goes on as usual for most.

Yet every now and then the Universe rings a bell, as it will at the Sagittarius Full Moon (June 20, 4:02 a.m. PDT). The second Sagittarius Full Moon in a row (the last was May 21) is at the intense 29th degree of the Archer’s sign, bringing a crucial message. This illuminating Full Moon happens just hours before the Sun moves into Cancer, heralding the Summer Solstice. The Solstice is a magical turning point at which it’s much easier than usual to break ties with the past. Cancer, the Great Goddess to whom we’re all returning, is beckoning us homeward.

A glimpse of the bigger picture is about to be unveiled, revealing the role you are to play in the current cosmic drama. How to tune in? Go outside tomorrow night and lift your arms to Luna, drawing down her radiant power. Shift out of your head and into your body, and listen for her message. Ring a bell in honor of all who’ve recently suffered and died. Then embrace your “imperfect offering” – we need what you have to share!

    Thank you for your message. It helps a lot. The world is a mess. I pray for it to get better. I am going to go out side tomorrow nite and lift my arms to Luna.
    God bless you

      Oh I’m so glad you’re going to do that, Vene! We all need to drink in the Moon Mama’s magic – especially now!

    Thank you dearest Simone. Indeed we need the time for prayers, for healing and for love to all.

    The world only looks like a mess to those of us who are aware enough to recognize that fact. WE are the light that the crack has let in!
    Celebrate that light and be that light and we will help the world heal.
    Thank you Simone for this reminder.

      You’re so welcome, fellow Simone! I’ve always toyed with the idea of doing a column called “Simone Sez,” by the way. 🙂

    Thank you Simone. A beautiful and heart warming message. Much appreciated from this stuck Sag!

    Simone Sez is a great idea. How about a daily planetary aspect blog. I know, I know your are very busy.
    Your message gave me goosebumps. Much love

      Thanks, Diane! Glad the message resonated. I am indeed thinking about what to do next after my Moon book is finished, but anything with the word ‘daily’ in it sends me running in the opposite direction! 🙂
