Its a progressive, dynamic, astrological day, with something unique in store for us… just what form this comes in remains to be seen. Surprising news will show up at some point today.
At 8:32 AM, the Sun and Uranus are waking us up big time as they form a steppingstone-square that sets liberating forces into big motion. Something feels unsettled, unstable and ready to move. Be kind - what ever is going on! This world is transitioning into chaotic times as the mainstream program of our matrix is being broken apart. It takes focus on the light and all the Love we can muster to keep from getting sucked under. Stay above it today… decide to be open and willing to release an attachment and unplug from the media that is selling fear. This time is a call for freedom from something that has been holding you back.
Mercury and Venus join as one (at 5 degrees Leo) at 5 PM CDT. The Mind and Heart are forming a sacred union in the sign of celebration, gratitude and self expression. Sounds pretty awesome to me! Let your inner child play today, as there is Big Love resonating in this vibrational combination. I’ll be with my amazing grandson so that will do it for me :)
What a perfect day to make an appreciation list or just look around and count the blessings that surround you. Where you choose to focus your thoughts today will carry extra power to your heart and vice versa… so choose consciously and celebrate the miracle of being.
The Sagittarius Moon adds to the fiery expression of aiming for more and when she squares off with Jupiter at at 6:24 PM, we could find we are tempted to blast off into some kind of excess, so hold the course of Love and steer clear of extremes.
At 10:45 PM, The Sun and Mars form a water trine that is sure to soothe some of the rough edges that Mar’s extended stay in Scorpio has scraped up - we will feel this building all the day and into tomorrow. This Cancer Sun, which is highly sensitive, is harmoniously joining our now direct Mars in Scorpio…its a gift, a chance to take what has been hurting and extract the lesson, see the truth and heal the wound. It’s been building for awhile and now we can feel some relief if we are allowing our intuitive nature to lead us. Swim and delight in these waters and then…
Breathe, breathe, breathe… this is the way.
Friday the 15th of July
Thanks to all of you for your kind comments... they encourage me tremendously.
We are all on this amazing journey together.
I always breath a sign of relief when the Moon leaves Scorpio and rockets into Sagittarius. Don’t get me wrong, Scorpio is not negative, this is Pluto's world and it is oh so powerful and as I like to say… deep diving. It is where my emotional body descends to the depths of the shadow self and I am always shown something that transforms my life. So I love Scorpio, having a 29 degree Scorpio Ascendant, it resets me with every encounter.
The Moon leaves the Scorpio waters and fires off into Sagittarius at 4:15 AM and our emotional body takes off to the adventurous, lofty, idealistic -truth seeking realm of Jupiters world. With this shift, optimism can soar and we take the wisdom gained from exploring the depths and apply it to our new and improved flight pattern.
This morning, The Sun in Cancer will form a steppingstone-square with Eris- the great disrupter and it can manifest as friction or tension, as it works its way to shake up the status quo and deliver the unexpected. Cancer loves to nurture and create safety with a focus on security, so self preservation and protection can come up. Eris has no interest in those qualities… she goes after truth no matter what gets disturbed and rattled in the process. It’s our task to channel this energy creatively and wisely. The stepping stone gives us an opportunity to rise up based on wisdom gained from past experiences. We are being asked to grow... shed more skin and to become new, once again.
Sooth your growing pains with nature and mini-meditations.
There is the same activating connection between the Sun and the Awakener-Uranus tomorrow morning… indicating we are in for more surprises, twists and turns. Constant re-centering and not being to attached to preconceived outcomes will be the best way to ride this wave.
Have you noticed that staying in the present is where our only comfort can exist?
The big shifts are in full swing and while this has me rebooting and shifting in a major way… these writings may become more sparse. It’s time we all put our self care 1st and foremost and for me this is greatly effecting my schedule. So please bare with me through a life changing reset process.
Make no mistake about it, we are deep in the midst of visceral pressures to make changes. Freedom verses control is evident on a global and personal scale. What kind of constraints and restricted agreements do you have in place, that have become intolerable, ones that drain your vitality and ability to find your center? We are all experiencing different versions of this theme.
It’s not going to go away! It’s designed to shake up, disrupt, wake up and shift anything that is stuck or in a rut. Something have just outlived their time. It takes courage to make these changes and there are some days where that seems in short supply. So the theme of self-nurturing and self-care reverberates through the core of every issue we might have. Being of service to others is an amazing, uplifting and transformational experience… but if you don’t take care of You 1st, it’s only so long before the service and everyone suffers. We are energy beings and there needs to be a healthier balance in the flow of giving and receiving for us to continue this grand expansion with greater ease and less stress.
This is a big astrological week and it is my plan to post the rest of the week… we shall see. Trusting in the guidance of the moment means … you gotta believe in trust, and that’s hard to do if you don’t tune your frequency up… so keep tuning upward :D
Venus moved into the heart centered sign of Leo on Tuesday and The Moon entered Scorpio hours later. Venus in the sign of heart centered gratitude, invites us to play more, create, paint, express our hearts desires and let our inner child out of the back seat to take flight.
Today - Thursday -The Moon joins Mars in Scorpio at 5:23 PM today and sends us into VOC (void of course) Moon that lasts until 4:15 AM tomorrow. Use this Void to center and allow answers to come. There is a good change they will as Mercury (the messenger) parallels the Sun (Soul-consciousness) at 8:03 PM. Mars (now direct) still in Scorpio until August 2nd, is triggering the clearing of old patterns and uncovering hidden truths that need liberation. It’s one of those nights that would best be spent quietly tuning in without the distractions of emails, world news and TV. Intuition speaks from the heart chakra now, so focus there.
This Saturday is off the hook with more big aspects that reflect heart openings and actions that lead to greater freedom, so buckle up and enjoy the ride!
The Virgo Moon helps us stay on course today, we can get up early ad tend to lists and chores. But before you jump to that… take a moment to send love to this beautiful planet. Take your shoes off and let her charge your electromagnetic field with her power. In our modern, high aced world, we are becoming more separated from the earthing experience and to that end we are loosing the heath benefits that come from that organic, natural connection.
Mercury in Cancer sextiles Jupiter in Virgo, encouraging us to remember what it is we are good at, how far we have come and instils an optimistic dose for the future. After yesterday, let’s reframe our approach and discern what works and what doesn’t. Take another look at the glass half empty and see it half full.
All this Cancer energy has shown us where our attachments are… some of which are not healthy. The clearing and releasing continues (be sure and drink lots of good quality water), and for today, look for reasons to be glad you are alive. Watch the sky, hug a tree, find a reason to laugh uncontrollably and remember to lighten-up by looking up.
Today is power packed with connections. Mercury in Cancer (the messenger) forms a bridge to Pluto (the transformer) in Capricorn. Mercury is outside the ecliptic and bringing in new vibrations for change. Polarized thinking and communications happen when we see only one side of the bridge and dig our heels in (fear based) and make the other side wrong. Resistance does not have to be part of this day, if we choose to look at the bridge and realize we can traverse the length of it from Mercury to Pluto and back again. So open up your mind and see what you discover, trusting it is for the highest good of all concerned to uncover this broader truth.
Venus in Cancer (sensitive heart) forms a steppingstone-square to Uranus in Aries ( the great awakener) upsetting the status quo, so we can elevate our consciousness via the heart chakra. Unexpected events can be prevalent today and we want to realize they don’t have to be reason for doom and gloom. Expect the Universe to deliver what is best for the longer course of this journey and stay flexible.
This evening the Sun bridges Pluto just as Mercury did earlier today. This is a strong indication that our consciousness is getting upgraded. It can be challenging to stay clear of the lower vibrational polarization that can ensue with these kinds of aspects. So… keep to your inner being for solace and support, allow others to be where they are and affirm that you will get the downloads and upgrades that are in alignment with your Soul’s growth. Allow this to happen and stay out of struggles by re-centering yourself and you will be amazed at the shift that results.
The Moon enters Virgo at 5:42 PM, bringing our emotional focus to handling details that will serve. The rest of the evening we may find people in a state of irritation if they are unconscious to how they are meeting these huge vibrations. Fussiness and perfectionism need to be replaced with service. Please, remember to allow and let everyone be, while you tend to your inner landscape.
We have a beautiful Grand Water Trine in effect to assist us. Venus/Chiron/Mars - this sacred triangle is bringing tremendous healing energy for the body and heart that are being recalibrated. Water will help you right now; swimming, floating, lots of showers, baths, feet in a stream, raft on a lake. Even images of this can be soothing and it’s the best place to still yourself and receive this new energy. Love yourself no matter what arises.
The Moon is in Leo all day today and she makes helpful connections between 1:30 PM and 2:30 PM with mercury and the Sun. If you have any deals to pitch, communications to deliver etc… this is a good time to do it as the Leo creativity and self expression will help you to shine. lead with Appreciation and Gratitude and you can’t go wrong!
Another plus for today is the Venus/Mars trine (Cancer/Scorpio) bringing heart felt affections to the surface that can manifest physically. Sensuality and heart felt caring are highlighted. On grander scale… the hear chakra and the physical body are blending n a way that we can find some pleasure concerning our desires. This can show up in many ways; thru art, beauty, healing, nature, food, etc.
Late afternoon (4:22 PM) the Leo Moon and Pluto are frictional and its best to step back rather than push forward. This energy is a preview of what is Big tomorrow, so get a handle on it now so you can rise up for the gifts headed our way via surprises and sudden shifts - yes, again!
Mercury and the Sun are forming a Super Conjunction this evening (10:24 PM )at 15 degrees Cancer, a power degree for sure. We really want to take advantage of what info comes to us today. It can concern family, children, parenting, diet, home, mothers and the general need for security and protection. Cancer represents the divine feminine where we shift from Doing to Being Its where we learn to shift into the heart center and think form there. The heart-brain is being fortified and energized by the light of the Sun. See what it brings when you are still enough to hear it.
Mercury’s water trine with Neptune today, may have us all dreaming about better versions of our current circumstances. Inspiration can flow today, so don’t let practicality choke it off. Mercury in Cancer has our mental processes focused on security and family, women and nurturing. Neptune in Pisces is all about what we can connect with in the limitless field - where anything and everything is possible. So… Tune Up, Dial Up, Tap In and let your dreams take flight.
The Cancer Moon enters self-expressive Leo at 11:29 AM, taking some of the intensity of the emotional sensitivity and shifting it to creative outlets. Leo thrives when we are in a state of gratitude and appreciation. Today is extra charged for experiencing the benefits of a gratitude list. No matter what is “going down” an appreciative focus helps lift us up to where we can see the beauty that inspires Love.
This is a day for imaginations to be set free… it doesn’t mean we have to act on every wild idea… just let them fly high today and see which ones have long term potential. Mars is still in Scorpio and moderately picking up speed, so we may feel like nothing is happening fast enough. Its the perfect time to embrace this - not so fast pace - messages are in-between the breathes.
Happy Birthday US :)
The New Moon (Sun/Moon conjunction) happened today at 6:02 AM CDT, a big celebration day in the US.
Six planets plus Chiron are in water signs and subjects that were at the forefront of the last Full Moon energy (17-20th of June) will have new approach. Back then it was yay more mental energy and now it is emotional. Our feelings are trying to tell us something and we must feel them to get the message.
Water flows into everything and eventually can smooth the most jagged of rocks and the sacred geometry activated today is heart centering in this flowing water kid of way.
Venus and Mercury join the Eris, Sun and Moon in Cancer - bringing a heightened sensitivity to this New Moon. Intuitions are coming in strong.
It’s easier to get out of our mental chatter and go more with our intuitive feeling nature.
Neptune in Pisces (unconditional Love ) trines the Sun/Moon in Cancer, suggesting we can tap spiritual resources and creativity that will nurture us to our sense of belonging.
Neptune forms a sextile to Pluto and Pluto is trine Jupiter and Pluto is bridging the New Moon… this is very dynamic.
A Cosmic rectangle contains messages of how to connect and awaken thru love… from the Universe. The ongoing Saturn/Neptune square sets us up with the lesson. How do I connect to this situation, person or place with divine Love? Listening to this sacred rectangle message asks us to feel our way right now. When Loving without judgement and letting go of the need to define what you see… you will find a peaceful fulfillment. Pluto may reveal what needs transformation as we cross the bridge to the Sun and Moon, so stay open.
This New Moon is a love story, chuck full of personal messages for you and your home base and family.We can hear them when we are in the receptive state.
Native Americans speak to the messages that a tree will share with you if you sit quietly and listen. The breeze through the trees and over the water, speaks to those who will be still. Be loving to yourself and listen for how you can take better care of your body, your home, your family and your heart.
We have a very positive energy this morning that invites us to appreciate the simple joys and bathe in the sweet waters of appreciation with everything we do. The Moon swims into the tender waters of Cancer and begins to take on the energetic pattern of the New Moon that will occur at 6:02 AM tomorrow morning. Self care, cooking, nurturing and tending to our homes and mothers brings fulfillment.
The Cancer Sun is trine Neptune in Pisces and this is a day to play with family and enjoy music, art and creative play. Take it easy and if you feel so inspired, find something to pass forward that you no longer want or need to hold onto. Pass it on to someone who can appreciate it and in the process, you will have symbolically cleared space for this New Moon tomorrow morning… more on that later. It’s time for me to go play in nature and I will have something posted this evening about this healing New Moon.
Put some music on... get barefooted... Dance!
With the Cancer Sun forming an inconjunct (quincunx) to Saturn at 8:53 AM, there is a need to make some adjustment concerning care-taking and responsibilities and work. Cancer is receptive and feminine and all about connection with family (not necessarily biological), so carve out some time today to just BE with loved ones and set aside business for now.
If there is a relationship with an authority figure that is hounding you in some way, today would be a great day to reconnect to your own inner authority who is in charge of writing your life-script. Let your inner teacher lead you to choices that matter to you.
With the Moon still in brilliant Gemini, we can feel social and chatty. Allow your emotions to be channeled in a positive way by setting your mood up 1st thing. Do a fast review of what truly matters to you and then choose a day-plan that is in alignment with that.
Creativity and Spirituality are on the rise with a Sun/Neptune water trine tomorrow morning at 6:02 AM. So tonight is a good night to begin focusing on creative projects, music, art, and spiritual values like compassion, centeredness and raising your vibration.
We are headed towards a Cancer New Moon in the early morning, Monday the 4th, it's another big day (more on the Sunday), for now, the Gemini Moon loves to play and network, so lets enjoy this holiday weekend in the US and stay present to be safe.
