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”

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.

Sun in Gemini

Sun in Gemini.   ingress:  Sunday, May 20 at 7:15pm.

Full Moon in Sagittarius:  Tuesday, May 29th at 7:20am.
Mercury into Gemini:  May 29th at 4:49pm.

How amazing are these butterfly eggs?Seriously.   Butterflies and birds always symbolize the free spirit and airy nature of Gemini.

Everyone has Gemini somewhere in their chart. You will experience restlessness and a desire to try new things – in reference to the qualities of that particular house.  The Sun is now in the sign of Gemini, bringing further emphasis to this arena. Gemini symbolizes travel, business communication, and the mind. It is social, witty, loves to listen, has to be free and can pull ideas out of the aether. People under this influence want new experiences, like to explore the unknown, are curious and VERY talkative.

Mercury, the ruler of Gemini, will be entering it’s rulership next Tuesday, the same day as the full moon in Sagittarius. Our minds will work at lightning speed until the middle of June, but the full moon in Sag will ask us to focus our minds and commit to specific goals. Whatever you set your mind to next week will come to fruition in early December.

Hail unto the mighty Spring

now

Sun into Aries: 9:15am Pacific.

Happy Spring Equinox and Thelemic New Year! Today, with the Sun’s entrance into Aries, we start a new astrological year. Try to plant something today, or pledge yourself to something you’d like to grow in your life this year. Whether it is courage, strength or love, you will harvest it in the Autumn.

Here is a prayer that His Holiness the Dalai Lama recites every morning as part of his waking rituals. This applies to all beliefs around the world – and you can pray for this too:

Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity

“May I be a guard for those who need protection
A guide for those on the path
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood

May I be a lamp in the darkness
A resting place for the weary
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings

May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened.

Astrologically, the first days of July have been emotionally rough, and the best way through it has been to Feel our Feelings. The Sun is in Cancer which is the most emotionally sensitive sign of the zodiac. It directs our attention to unresolved family/home issues that need to be addressed and purged. Also, the Moon has been traveling through Scorpio the last few days – bringing up our deepest psychological knots to be healed. Mercury and Mars have been barreling through Cancer too, adding some extra urgency and heat. PLUS on Saturday, Chiron (the wounded healer) turned retrograde – activating the vulnerable place of old pain each of us carries. I mean seriously!! How much more can we take??!!

Be gentle with yourself this week, and take time for solitude if you need it. I do a lot of journaling during times like these, and often find nuggets of wisdom through reflection and dreams. As a wise friend once told me, “if you treat yourself like a precious jewel, everything will fall into place”. I find the deepest truths can be found in our recurring patterns. Is there something you need to sacrifice in order to release suffering?

 

 

Currently:
Mars opposing Pluto (the warrior faces Death, read this piece by Austin Coppock)
Mercury into Leo 5:20pm Pacific TODAY.
Full Moon in Capricorn this SUNDAY, July 9th (just work all weekend)
Venus in Gemini, Mars in Cancer (not happy) until July 20th.

So basically, next weekend could be the sequel to last… the Full Moon this Sunday is at the same degree as Pluto – so we will have a Full Moon conjunct Pluto which is also intensely emotional – but highly transformational. Pluto wants to help us rebirth ourselves by clearing out toxic sludge; it’s catharsis.

“Catharsis (from Greek κάθαρσις katharsis meaning “purification” or “cleansing”) is the purification and purgation of emotions—especially pity and fear—through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration. It is a metaphor originally used by Aristotle in the Poetics, comparing the effects of tragedy on the mind of a spectator to the effect of a cathartic on the body.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catharsis

“Sirens by the Sea” by Victor Karlovich Shtemberg (1863-1921)

Astro Report: Gemini season

Sun into Gemini: May 20th at 1:31pm.
New Moon in Gemini: Thursday, May 25th at 12:44pm.
Mercury is Direct in Taurus.
Saturn – Uranus trine at 26 degrees (Sagittarius and Aries respectively) TODAY.
Venus Direct in Aries.  Mars Direct in Gemini.

Silence of the Night

Silence of the Night, Reiji Hiramatsu

I’d say the big thing is this trine with Saturn and Uranus today. This is a harmonious connection between two complete opposites:

Saturn is reality, time, responsibility, history, discipline, commitment, stability, and the establishment. It is slow, solid change.

Uranus is revolution, invention, science, rebelliousness, genius, Change, disruption, electricity and awakening. It is sudden change.

So these two are having a friendly conversation today, which is interesting.  If you have a duality in your life, you might find some common ground today. The main thing is that Saturn will INSIST on any changes you make being well thought out and solid. In my view, Saturn is heavier than Uranus and so those energies carry more weight, BUT they will have to find a compromise since Uranus will not be silenced.

A new physical reality comes into view.
A revolution with a solid foundation.
A path to making aspirations into realities.

This is a good day to set some goals ❤

 

This trine is also happening in the fire signs of Aries and Sagittarius, which brings guts, confidence, self esteem and passion. Creativity and adventure. Composers, artists, actors, musicians and performers are ignited by this energy today. Let your light shine.
