OK! We made it through the Full Moon eclipse last week. Sun still in Leo so…. cats.
Here’s what’s happening now:

Tuesday, July 31 – Moon in Pisces, going void at 3:42pm Pacific.  A day of rest and recovery, and letting our imaginations be wildly creative.

Wednesday, Aug. 1 – LAMMAS. The first harvest festival of the year. Catch the first glimmerings of the seed you planted in March. Mars squares Uranus in the morning however, exacerbating Mars/Mercury/Uranus retrogrades. Be cautious, no driving crazy or picking fights with strangers or relatives. Connect with your inner voice, and hear what it’s telling you. Revelations abound.

Thursday, Aug. 2 – Moon in Aries. Be cautious;  keep a cool head and a discerning heart. Tempers and irritability could flare today. FOCUS ON YOUR OWN LIFE.

Friday, Aug. 3 – Moon into Taurus at 12:51pm Pacific. A luxurious day. Allow yourself all the pleasures available. Slow down and smell the roses. Appreciate nature, art and food.

From Ronnie Pontiac:

“Jupiter is still trine Neptune, with Saturn trine Uranus, Jupiter sextile Pluto, and Pluto sextile Neptune. This is quite an array of positive aspects that can indicate major experiences in healing, spirituality, an organized acceptance of improvements, a deeper understanding of compassion, and the creation of masterpieces”

Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius

19875474_1909817122633047_7647839705032297020_n

Extremely rare atmospheric phenomenon called rainbow bridge or circumhorizontal arc: when the sun is at least 58º above horizon and ice crystals in clouds form rainbows.

Friday, 1:20pm Pacific: Full Moon Eclipse in Aquarius.

To make the right decisions today, focus on your commitments to friends, groups and plans for the future.  Taking action is a bit trickier though, since the planet of ambition, Mars, is currently going backwards (retrograde ) through Aquarius. In fact Mars, the full Moon Eclipse, and the South Node (the past) are all sitting together at the same point in Aquarius today.

Don’t start anything new or take any risks this weekend. Put your energy towards wrapping up past projects that have been bugging you for awhile. When the South Node is present, it’s the best time to release relationships you’ve outgrown, clean your house, get organized, and finish things. This weekend is great for clearing energy with smudging and bells, doing chores, putting things where they belong, and tackling dusty projects. Nurture yourself with good food and rest.

Sun in Leo (in it’s rulership), is the only celestial body in the right place right now – so connect with healing, leadership, and where your heart is leading you.
Mercury now retrograde in Leo (but currently standing still over our heads.
Venus in Virgo (in her Fall – not happy).

The fires exploding all over California are going to gain in intensity, so be careful driving out there. Look out for big egos, excessive speed, angry drivers. Uranus is squaring the Full Moon, which can cause sudden, unexpected events. The opportunity for creative breakthroughs and revelations about your life could be impactful and life changing.

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

I was taught if you’re thinking in these ways, you’re stuck in the patterns of your childhood. This is how traumatized children think about the world. It’s important to be present with yourself when you catch yourself doing this, and to shift into an adult perspective.

New Moon in Cancer

Manannan

Modern statue of Manannán mac Lir, Irish sea god, on Binevenagh Mountain, Co Derry. Sculpted by John Sutton (Game of Thrones) the statue was stolen by Christian fundamentalists and later discovered damaged beyond repair. A replacement was later erected.

New Moon in Cancer: 7:48pm Pacific.  ECLIPSE

A New Moon signifies a new beginning, wherever the Moon appears in your chart. This new beginning will develop and come to fruition six months later. Today’s event however, is an eclipse. This is a new beginning on steroids.

Mars Retrograde: Jun 26-Aug 27.
Mercury Retrograde: July 26-Aug 18.
Let’s start with Mars.

How have things been in your life the past week? Mars (drive, courage, conflict) is retracing his steps through Aquarius – effecting our ambitions. A Mars retrograde isn’t common, and when it happens each of us needs to refocus our energies inward and solidify the foundations of our plans.  Nourish your body, get some rest, research your path and work behind the scenes.

Men in particular can be very effected by a Mars retrograde. The men in our lives might need more space and quiet time to reflect on their identities and path forward. It’s a time for all of us to be patient with one another, and to seek peace and comfort.

There are seven celestial bodies currently retrograde: Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Pluto, the North Node and Neptune. Mercury will join them July 26th. This means from June 26 through September 6, we’ll have the majority of planets retrograde at once!
The last time our country experienced this many retrogrades was late 1943 and early 1944. These retrogrades (plus upcoming eclipses!) signal a turning point in our lives, our country and the world. In 1943, our planet faced another turning point — the horrors of World War II and the Allied victory.

We stand at a crossroads but we will find direction by focusing on our internal growth. With Mars Retrograde you need to watch your step. Be cautious, and don’t start fights or legal action. It is a solid time to release friendships that you’ve outgrown, or end participation in activities or groups that don’t nourish us.

Prune away those things and people that are hold you down, wish you ill, or have little to offer beyond negativity. Sometimes one must accept when old friendships are truly over and can’t be repaired or “waited out.”

Mars shows up in our physical relationships. It protects and acts in accordance with the Will of our Higher Self. It is the energy and force that demands we fulfill our spiritual path in this life.

Zoroastrianism

Excellent video explaining the tenets of Zoroastrianism. I really like the ideas of this ancient religion.

“Zoroastrianism is an ancient religion — older than Christianity, Buddhism and Judaism — that still exists today. Its followers believe we are connected to the environment and that good and evil exist in all of us.”
