New Moon in Cancer ♋️
During New Moon, the Sun, the Moon, and Earth are in alignment, technically known as a Syzygy or Conjunction. This alignment of the Sun, the Moon, and Earth, the side of the Moon that faces Earth is left in complete darkness, normally why the Moon can not be seen during New Moon phase. During New Moon phase, the Moon rises and sets around the same time as the Sun. This results in an immense glare making it extremely difficult so see the moon with the naked eye.
Today, when Sun enters Cancer to begin the Summer season, the Sun and Moon will conjoin for a New Moon. With Cancer being a water sign, the ocean plays a huge part during the New Moon in Cancer. King tides, sea rises are often common during this time. The constant change in sea levels is a direct correlation with our state of mind during this particular moon phase.
Any astrological events in Cancer are likely to invoke the theme of cycles. This is due to the association of Cancer and Water, as well as Cancer being a sign ruled by the Moon.
The New Moon in Cancer is more likely to be an extraction and dilution of such cycles, ending of one lunar cycle and the beginning of another. This New Moon will be stirring emotions that happened the previous 29 days and it may even bring more clarity.
Any unfinished business may be resolved now, or you may just be feeling a lot clearer to find answers and act on.
This is a great period to spend time with family, relaxing and taking things slow. Emotions may run high during this time, but it will also allow hidden emotions to speak up if you have been waiting to share something, this is the time. However, this is not the time to overthink or over analyzing things. Allow the anxiousness and stress levels to gently dissipate.
The most important take away is that this is a transitional time, emotions may run high, but you will feel truly supported by the nurturing feeling of the New Moon in Cancer. Time to draft a new intention so you can collect your fruits come Full Moon.
The summer solstice occurs at the moment the earth's tilt toward from the sun is at a maximum. It occurs when the sun is directly over the Tropic of Cancer, which is located at 23.5° latitude North, and runs through Southern China, Bangladesh, India, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bahamas, and Mexico.
For every place north of the Tropic of Cancer, the sun is at its highest point in the sky and this is the longest day of the year. During the day of the summer solstice, the sun appears at its highest elevation.
Solstices are opposite on either side of the equator, so the Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere is the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere and vice versa.
The first day of each season can either be defined using astronomical events like solstices and equinoxes, or they can be determined based on meteorological factors, such as average temperatures. In the US and some Northern Hemisphere areas, the Summer Solstice marks the first day of Summer. One must know that the official date for the first day of summer may vary depending on the country's climate.

Happy Summer Solstice Northern Hemisphere!

First lets understand what equinox is. Equinox, derived from Latin, meaning "equal night", it marks the moment the Sun crosses the celestial equator, the imaginary line in the sky above the Earth’s equator, from south to north.
The Earth spins around the Sun at an angle, which is why we have different seasons. The Earth's axis is always tilted at an angle of about 23.4° in relation to the ecliptic plane, the imaginary plane created by the Earth's path around the Sun. On any other day of the year, either the Southern Hemisphere or the Northern Hemisphere tilts a little towards the Sun. But on the equinox, the tilt of the Earth's axis is perpendicular to the Sun's rays.
During the Equinox day and night are of approximately equal duration around the world, though the Northern Hemisphere experience the opposite season than the Southern Hemisphere. In other words, while the Northern Hemisphere may Experience the Vernal/Spring Equinox, the Southern Hemisphere will be experiencing the Autumnal/Fall Equinox, therefore vice-versa. The day is approximately 12 hours in duration an so i the night. Marking the beginning of the Spring or Fall season, Vernal or Autumnal.
March Equinox in Boston, Massachusetts, USA is on Monday, March 20, 2017 at 6:29 am EDT.
Happy Spring, Northern Hemisphere. And Happy Fall, Southern Hemisphere.

There are several ways to re-energize you crystal/stone; the most affective and powerful way is to rest it under Full Moon rays, the gravitational pull of a Full Moon is excellent to re-energize anything and anyone, for best results allow your crystal/stone to rest overnight under the rays.
You may also re-energize by leaving the crystal/stone under Sun rays, this is a quick and easy.
For cloudy days you can use rock salt or brown rice; the nourishing, grounding quality of the salt and rice balances the stones’ energy and removes negativity, allow the crystal/stone to rest on it for several hours, the salt and rice should be dispose after single use for being saturated with unwanted energy.
The most important take way here is to respect and appreciate all of the properties of the crystal/stone, and know that they may become saturated with negative energy, for that matter if in constant use it is recommended to clean it every two weeks and re-energize it every four days or sooner as needed. When saturated it's best to allow the crystal/stone to re-energize and you can keep doing it over and over again.
Programming Gemstones and Crystals
The intention of programming a stone is to focus the energy on a specific need or desire. Once an intention is set for that stone continually emit the energy in which it was programmed to until its clean, cleared and reprogrammed again. You may program a stone to have several intentions, it is best practice to limit to a max of 3 intentions to not saturate the stone. You might seek healing, protection, or spiritual guidance, you may ask to bring more love or prosperity into your life or wish to better your home or work environment. The possibilities are endless.
How to Program and Set an Intention
To begin make sure you prepare an intention, it is important that your intention is well thought out and focused, therefore when you set your intention your stone will not be confused and the energy that it will emit will be focused as well on your intention.
Then you must select a stone that resonates with the intention you want to set. Follow the healing property chart to make sure you choose the best stone for your intention.
Finally before programing your stone make sure you cleanse and energize it, follow the How to Care page for more information.
Now to program you stone find a quite space and have a sit. Lay your stone on your right hand and rest your hand over your left hand. Let both of your hands lay on your lap or legs. Gaze at the stone. Sense its energy, and allow your energy to become attuned with the stones energy. Once you feel in harmony with the stone, begin to recite your intention out loud. Repeat it several times until you feel intuitively that the programing is completed.
Once you programmed your stone you may wear your stone and benefit from your intention programing.
Beware that a stone may be corrupt or exchange their programs when coming into physical contact with one another, to prevent this keep your stones away from each other in case you have multiple stones. Make sure to re-program your stone if you if you become more attuned to your intention and then re-focus your intention.
