Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer: Attachments and Forgiveness

New Moon Partial Lunar Eclipse in Cancer

Greetings beloveds,

Woooo it’s been quite a year so far huh? I hope that you all are taking care of yourselves. Remember self-care, self-care, self-care!! Alright here’s your breakdown for the Partial Solar Eclipse New Moon in Cancer.

  • Solar Eclipse 20 degrees Cancer – July 13, 2018
  • Solar Eclipse 15 degrees Capricorn – January 6, 2019
  • Solar Eclipse 10 degrees Cancer – July 02, 2019
  • Lunar Eclipse 24 degrees Capricorn – July 16, 2019
  • Solar Eclipse 4 degrees Capricorn – December 26, 2019
  • Lunar Eclipse 20 degrees Cancer – January 10, 2020
  • Solar Eclipse 0 degrees Cancer – June 21, 2020 (Summer Solstice/Cancer) *
  • Lunar Eclipse 13 degrees Capricorn – July 5, 2020

This is the corresponding eclipse in the Cancer/Capricorn series listed above. Cancer and Capricorn dance between the day and the night, our conscious and subconscious. Cancer takes us into the womb and the home. A space that often can serve as a safe haven as well as a space of great trauma. It all depends on our personal, familial, and ancestral experiences of home. Have you ever written the story of your family? Explored what home meant to your parents, grandparents, or great grandparents? Within our families there are patterns of behaviors, emotions, perspectives of viewing the world and each other. We inherit these things through our cellular memory and how we are raised. It is also where we develop our initial sense of self. Those formative years where home may have been a very solid real place or one that exists in our minds. Either way, home, nurturing, the womb, and the mother archetype are the themes of a Cancer Eclipse.

Capricorn moves us into our role in the world. Our our understanding of home expands to our purpose. What has shaped us creates the foundation for who we are and what we do. Yet, as we grow and mature moving through the Zodiac we begin to understand how much more to us there this beyond our home. Capricorn brings the light of the summer into the darkness of winter. That even when we feel we have gone beyond saving there is grace for us. A chance for us to try again. Ruled by the Planet Saturn, Capricorn is all about structure, stability, and purpose. What you do and who you are matters. They are always here for the come up and desire to obtain more. More growth, more power, more compassion, more love, more influence but they must have to work for what they want. They honor the struggle, the sacrifice, the upward climb. Capricorn takes the trauma from our childhood and turns it into gold. Are you ready to turn your pain into possibilities? Are you ready to hold the darkness in the light?

This new moon review what you are attached to. What are you bound to in this life? Money, love, fame, knowledge, freedom, family? What drives you and influences the decisions that you make? If you are unaware of your attachments just take note of where you spend most of your time ad what you think about the most then imagine that you must let them go. What is your reaction? You might feel relief, frightened, angry, sad, joy, or even panic. There are several forms of attachment which I will discuss in the next post.

For now, remember that love is the basis of all. It fills every part of our being. Love will keep you during these changing times. As we do our work this week we move further into our purpose. Into being at one with our multidimensional selves. As Cancer and Capricorn have shown us the separation between our light and dark, inner child and adult, work and home selves are all one. Just different facets of the same crystal.

See you on Wednesday for the New Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer ritual.

July Planetary Placements:

July Planetary Placements

Greetings beloveds,

Welcome to July and the hot mess that this month will be.

First we have a Chiron retrograde in Aries which is calling all of us to the stage to face what we have been covering up with love, light, and good intentions. Stop hiding behind the emotional veil of summer and take a good look at what is going on in your life on an everyday basis. Big decisions do have lasting effects but it’s our everyday actions, thoughts, and feelings that set the stage.

On July 9th Venus enters Virgo turning that show me Leo love into a discerning calculating question of “what value does my relationship have?”. Or the question you may already be asking yourself, “is it worth it?”. With the work we are doing in Chiron, Mars, and Aries, this is also a great time to evaluate your relationship with yourself. If you were to place a value on the time, energy, and support your give yourself would it suggest that you are priceless, affordable, or low value?

July 12th we have a partial solar eclipse new moon in Cancer that is sure to clear out some of the mess we have been enduring since winter. I’ll have a breakdown of the new moon in Cancer posted on Monday.

July 22nd the Sun enters Leo and it’s time to shine baby. Leo season is all about having the courage to be yourself, take center stage, and let the world hear your story. This may also feed the negative ego’s of some folks who feel that they deserve the spotlight but are not getting the attention they need. Give yourself attention! Chiron retrograde in Aries wants us to fuel our souls so we do not have to seek validation externally. Do you and the support will come. I mean it’s Leo season, there’s no way you’ll be ignored.

July 23rd is the start of our second Mercury retrograde of the year. This time Mercury is in Leo which calls us to communicate our desires and not take no for an answer. On the flip side, if you’ve been…pushing. Telling everybody that has ears what you want, what’s going wrong, what’s going right in your life please slow down. At times, Leo can be warm and inviting. Then there are other times when Leo’s seem to be bragging and egotistic. Find balance with your voice. This may be controversial but not everyone deserves your story. So choose wisely.

Finally this month closes out with a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. This will balance out the expressiveness of Cancer season allowing us to take a step back from the deeply emotional past few months. I’ll have a full post on this in the next few days.

What are you looking forward to this month? I am super hyped for these eclipses. I know they will bring us closer to greatness.

With love,

Kamilah Rose

The Flow of Your Space: Water in the Home

Copy of Move Like WaterGreetings beloveds,

Summer time and the living is EASY…well it might not be easy but it definitely is hot. There are so many ways to utilize the element of water in our lives. During the summer, we gravitate to this element even more as the intensity of the heat makes us crave water as it refreshes and cools us. Here are some ways to include water in your home and space:

  • water fountains
  • fish tanks
  • pools
  • images of water

But you can also take the time to connect to the element personally and see how it would like to be included in your space. For me, I have mermaids, seashells, blues, greens, teals, and my water altar jar. What are your favorite ways to connect to the element of water in your living space?


Summer Solstice 2018 Love Reading

Summer Solstice Love 2018

Greetings beloveds!

Are you singing summer time love songs solo to yourself, your lover, or a new friend? It’s no coincidence that summer is associated with love, sex, and creation. The heat calls us out of our homes and clothes sometimes. Ruled by the element of water, we are pulled within to the shell of the crab Cancer to gestate. This allows for us to build and be reborn. This summer the theme will be developing and practicing compassion. Compassion towards yourself and towards others. We can get so wrapped up in our own lives and creating our own realities that we forget that others are doing the same. It goes back to the 4 Agreements from Don Miguel Ruiz. 

  1. Be Impeccable with Your Words
  2. Don’t Take Anything Personally
  3. Don’t Make Assumptions
  4. Always Do Your Best

We do not know what others experience and how the experiences affect them. Everyone has their own lives and their own paths. When we make assumptions about others feelings, experiences, dreams, purpose, background we limit what they can be to us. If we hold on to these assumptions we can not fully experience the other person. We only see what we believe they can be. We will all be healing. The Masculine Shadow is being addressed. This can bring up really difficult feeling and behaviors for our self and each other. Find your own ways to see through others eyes. To see what they experience. This will develop your own ability to love and receive love- the key to manifestation.


Find ways to show that you care for others. Show up for the work that as being done. If you find you do not have the capacity to hold space, create spaces where folks can care for themselves. I do this with my blog and other social media efforts. Although I am not directly in contact with you all, this space connects us. We are able to explore our thoughts and feelings. To move forward. We can all create spaces for support. Be creative and open.


Find your love language and the love language of those close to you. Then discover ways to express that you care through those languages. The more that we give the more we receive. This does not always mean that you have to sit with someone for hours. What are the ways that you express that you care for others? How do they prefer to receive love? Fill your cup. Keep it full. Then let it overflow. From the overflow, share with others. This pool is endless and you always have access to it but you must find your connection. That is the work.


Love does not end. It is from this endless pool that we realize that every connection we consciously make is fed through our unconscious reality of being fully connected to all things, times, and spaces. True infinity. There will be challenges this month. The seasons are beginning to change. The air starts to shift. We move from the heart to the soul. Connect these two through Heart, Third Eye, and Crown Chakra work. Breathe deeply so that you are able to take everything in. I believe in you. I love you.

Summer Solstice 2018: The Value of Being Real

Copy of Summer Solstice

Greetings beloveds,

It’s SUMMER SOLSTICE!! In general, this time of the year is all about nurturing the seeds that we have planted during the spring. It’s a time when the world feels alive. The sun is high overhead, the days are longer, the air hot, and the waters are cool. Summer brings us the light side of winter. Remember when you faced your shadow last winter? This season, it’s your shadow’s turn to ask who are you? What does your conscious self want? To find what your shadow wants, you look at the things you manifest which you do not want. To see what your conscious self wants you look at what manifests that you DO want. The things that make you feel happy. When the sun is high we see the world and what we present to the world. A moment when we fully see our conscious manifestations. In astrology it would be equivalent to the ascendant in astrology. To learn more about the energy of summer check out my post about Flowing with the Season.

Summer is ruled by the element of water and the astrological sign of Cancer. The water element allows the flow of change to move us from where we have been to new destinations/destiny’s. This could be in the ease of a lazy river, the deluge of a flood, or the abrupt wall of a tsunami crashing down upon us. This summer we take the clarity and experiences we gained this spring and use them to create new streams of income. Many folks have changed jobs, gained promotions, and started new businesses. Perhaps you received some guidance on your overall purpose. At the very least we know what we DO NOT want. How we will go about finding, developing, or nurturing these new financial related ventures? Through connecting to our creative center, the sacral chakra. Any exercises or work you can do related to your sacral chakra will assist you in birthing these dreams from last winter into reality to be harvested in the fall. The sacral chakra is our creative, manifesting, center. It is near the womb and encompasses our ability to channel energy up from the earth and down from the heavens into this plane. It is a magical space but when we ignore or fill our sacral chakra with obligations, restrictions, or rules we lessen our ability to really see all that we can be. Choose your desire, feed it, water it, nurture it and work that sacral chakra.


The divine feminine is here to assist you with this manifesting moment. Clear out what you do not need and make way for new growth. This could come in the form of a feminine identifying person, place, or system. Watch for symbols associated with the feminine to guide you and offer affirmation that you are on the right path. On a practical note, be wise and follow your intuition. If you follow your intuition it will lead you. Worrying about am I doing this right? Is this where I’m supposed to be? CONFUSION is a sign that you are not connecting to your soul, higher self, shadow, and Spirit. Sit down and listen. When you get that filling to go then go.


Hello retrograde season! Planets are in full affect right now. There are obstacles you are experiencing. These may feel overwhelming but do not give up. Anytime we meet resistance, slow down. Just as you meet your shadow in the winter, meet your conscious in the summer. Face the things that you have done and the seeds you have sown. Know that you are doing your work and stay in your lane.


From the pain, from the loss comes those who have your back. There are new partnerships, friendships, human, spirit, and plants are coming forth to show how blessed you are. Join with those that sparkle like the ocean at high noon.


This will be a summer of change, growth, and transformation. Be open, be ready and love yourself fiercely.

Goddesses of Life and Death: Kali Speaks

IMG_5514ilfordmodifiedGreetings beloveds,

Been feeling off balance? Like the world is crashing around you, out of control, as if the world is just against you? You’re are definitely not alone. While there is a lot going on astrologically, Kali has come forth to speak loudly. 2017 was a year of releasing, which is easier said than done. Now, we are in a space where those lessons are coming back around for us. Through our family’s, friends, work, passion, purpose, self/shadow.

Kali, brought a dance of life and fire to get us off our butts and doing the work. She also lit the fires of attachment and the power to see our realities for what they are. We are being fully authentic. Feeling and expressing who we are in the best of times and the worst. All of who we are. There’s no shame, no fear, no holding back. Let it be free! Authentic.

Set your boundaries, if anyone does not respect them let them be removed from your presence. You’re worth the very best.

When we try to squash down our true feelings eventually they will explode. Wreaking havoc on everything in their paths. Whether that’s your internal self or those around you.

Kali says let what needs to be released go and dance wildly, with joyful abandon.

I love you all!!

New Moon in Gemini: Dare to Be Great

New Moon in Gemini

It’s Gemini Season! We are feeling the pull to get out and share what matters most to us (to those who deserve it). We have recently come through some difficult times of release, rejuvenation, and rebirth. The birth process is not always easy and yet there is idea that everything is sunshine and roses during the spring. More so we are going through birth, new born, teething, and terrible twos in a short period of time. When we are most focused on what others want from us than on what we need for ourselves we come up with a deficit. Now that we have accessed what truly holds value for us during our time in Taurus it’s time to start letting people know what our standards are through using our voice.

Through embracing how we truly feel about ourselves, our hopes, and our dreams we can begin to express that with others. This can be done by connecting our heart desires to our throat chakra. If you have not worked on grounding and defining your sense of stability through your root, sacral, and solar plexus chakra’s you might find this to be a bit disconcerting. No worries. Do the work now. Gemini’s may not be the best at finishing projects but they definitely enjoy the process.  Get into the process of healing as this will assist you in releasing old patterns and codes that do not serve you. Although we are in the time of rebirth, we may just be bringing back old ways that should have died but we would not let go. Release!! My video on ancestral healing and release can help you with this process.

This this work you’ll find yourself experiencing victories in your personal life, home, work, and spiritual practice. You may also find that in the same ways that the veil is thinner during Samhain or Halloween that your divination abilities are heightened at this time. Cultivate your talents through paying active attention to what you excel at. If you have a difficult time knowing what your gifts are, ask those who you trust what skills they have seen you exhibit. Gemini’s are great mirrors for communication and allow for us to share clearly what we see in ourselves and each other. Also, watch for signs and symbols of significance. This could be through numerology, astrology, animal symbols, or your personal signs. For me, I know I need to ground because I’ll scratch a wall with my car. It never fails, when I’m all up in my head and unbalanced Spirit wakes me up with a jolt. Identify your personal signs as you nurture your relationship with Spirit and self.

Happy New Moon!

June’s Planetary Placements

June Placements 12 Mercury moves into Cancer

Our communication softens and becomes more nurturing. It’s time for us to connect with our hearts and speak our truths. Mercury in Cancer will cause you to find a cuddle buddy or someone who you can have all the deep heart wrenching discussions about your family, friends, and dreams.

June 13 New Moon in Gemini: This is a super busy new moon that I’ll cover soon in the New Moon reading. For now, here’s the planetary breakdown.

Pluto/ Saturn in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio are in retrograde.

Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Mars in Aquarius

Sun in Gemini

Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

Neptune in Pisces

June 16 Uranus semi-square Neptune

Uranus the planet of revolutions and advanced communication creates a bit of friction against Neptune the planet of dreams and the subconscious. On the surface you are rebelling against conditions that cause oppression for yourself and others. This could be in the realm of economics in that you are wanting to become a part or support more radical different forms of commerce. Yet, you might be too scared that you will lose the little bit of control you do have if you get directly involved. This is a good time to review of where you invest your time and energy. Be brave and willing to stand up for what you believe in. This is a time to action against oppression. A new world is coming.

June 18 Saturn quincunx True node and Neptune retrograde

Saturn quincunx True Node: You are called to following your true purpose. It is time to connect your vocation with your higher calling. Doing so through a voice of just power that is confident but not self-centered is vital to your success. You are being tempted to exploit your influence or wield it over others to serve yourself and not the greater good. Prejudice and judgement are signs that you are not moving towards your purpose but being sidetracked. Use your powers for equality not oppression.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces: Retrograde season is in full swing! Neptune in retrograde in Pisces at this time is all about love, friendships, and our dream relationship. We are diving in deeply to the fantasy of what our love lives or life in general could be. We may encounter people or situations that seem to be the perfect manifestation of what we desire. Remember that in the sign and planet of dreams things are not always what they seem. Key words are to MOVE SLOW!! Enjoy yourself but take a realistic stance. Hold off on jumping into relationships or other dream propositions until Neptune stations direct on November 24th.

Mars Retrograde in Aquarius (Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune all in retrograde)

Mars in Aquarius represents a desire for independence and liberation. We are wanting to explore our ability to provide for yourself in an innovative way. You might be experimenting with new forms of technology, media, or currency. We are wanting to try new things and approaches to fixing our personal, community, societal, and global issues. Just be mindful of only wanting to try things your way. If you find yourself pushed into a corner you will rebel to keep your freedom. As this is Mars in retrograde we won’t be making progress as quickly as we could. There will be resistance to changing our society and how we make money. We’ve seen some of this coming in the decline in mining, farming, and other industries. We are on the verge of a surge in technological advancements. Stay on your toes, stay open to change, be patient.

Pluto Quintile Chiron

Pluto in Capricorn in reverse quintiles Chiron in Aries. Pluto in Capricorn (6th house) gives highlights the importance of hard work in achieving success. You are putting this energy towards healing and things that bring you back to life. We have been living according to what OTHERS want for us or what society says we should be doing. Pluto in Capricorn quintile Chiron in Aries gives us a push to align with our personal purpose through a creative outlet. This could be reinventing yourself, regenerating your business or approach to your job, or a literal creative pursuit. IF you have been working on debuting something new to the world now is the time when you may get that spark to really go after it or begin to share this information with others.

                Mercury, and Uranus in Taurus

Sun and Mercury in Cancer

Venus in Leo

June 29 Mercury in Leo

Mercury in Leo in the 1st house brings us a great opportunity to develop our communication skills. If you are confident in your ability to engage others and speak your truth be mindful of the power that you hold during this placement. We are very magnetic, and you might draw to you more attention than you want especially if your opinions or truth triggers others. If you are not confident in your speech or presence, then you may be susceptible to others influence. Develop your own truth and opinions. Find productive ways to express yourself. If others are not open to what you have to say they many not be the audience for you.
