“Compassion, loving kindness toward others outside ourselves opens the door to selfless recognition of higher truths. Conscience and a search for inner truth awakens heroic deeds and virtuous destiny, higher calling and artistic endeavor merging science and spirit.”
July 1st and 2nd, Mars opposes Pluto triggering into Full Moon conjunct Pluto on July 9th and Sun oppose Pluto on July 10th, Crazy time for some. Sudden loss or gain of power, sense of regeneration renewal or degeneration or destruction. Manmade or natural catastrophe, or danger of such. Dangerous times in geo-political hot spots, aggressive economic political moves, shake ups, use of force, weird exposures and dirty experience. War drums and political back room fighting breaking out on the streets and news. Bad time for anger, jealousy, projecting, negative emotions, things get out of control. Mars is aggression and Pluto is big bad scary guys, things, forces, power plays. On positive note, here and there, heroes arise, indefatigable willpower to accomplish task, complete deed or work. Happiness when alone, gardening, weeding, cleaning, fixing things up, cooking healthy wise, yoga meditation, researching. Unhappy if having to fight and wrangle with others. Strong storms come and go, powers beyond self causing change. Struggle to find power through rather than power over. Where there is a sense of conquering or being conquered, there is no love. Positive side of Pluto is Compassion and Conscience, a way of accessing spiritual worlds, seeing the beauty and truth in another. Negatively, it’s attachment, jealousy, taking law into own hands, threat and force. Cardinal Signs Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, and Libra the most strongly affected. Look to your astrology chart to see what planets or houses in such signs.
July 16th to 24th, Moon conjunct Uranus (21st) triggers impulses to free, be free, break away, go to the higher level or next game plan. For some, the coming week brings shocking changes, sudden shift in perceptions, insights, new revelation or news changing velocity and curve of events. Venus trine Jupiter on 18th wants love and harmony, friends and social artistic community. July 19th Venus trine Saturn wants love to last, long-term security, maybe even the past to come back but July 19-20th Sun square Uranus bringing sudden quake, storm, shock, change, revelation, need to change or rearrange, ascend or take sharp turns. Mercury conjunct North Node around now brings big news and great connections, conversing and sharing; or huge disconnect (for some). Lots of new News! New Moon 23rd jolts sense of ego need to take control or find new driver. Avoid anger by demanding self to change, grow, purify, renew. Need to try new things, new adventures, or a strong return to love and truth on July 24 Venus oppose Saturn and Mercury trine Uranus. Mutable signs need to stick to what works, enlivens, secures, and ‘enwisens’. Fire signs need to let truth and facts guide new highways in both the mind and sunshine path ahead.
New Moon July 24th conjunct Mars leading into July 26th Sun conjunct Mars, big push to accomplish, finish, drive home points, accomplish victory. Aspect brings advancement and progress by overcoming obstacles. Some find times too demanding of self or others. Avoid argumentative or negative people who lack constructive critique or loving kindness, compassion. Rashness, hastiness, negative critique, over-assertiveness, too much talk, leads to trouble. Yoga, chewing food long and slow, long walks and slow talks, deeper breath to the heart, deeper letting go, surrendering to higher self in self and other, brings happier smiles and peaceful miles. Avoid always thinking of some place in future or past, practice being here now, presence in the present, divining the divine in each other. Be Peace, look for the eternal in every person and situation. Sun/Mars can be ArchAngelic connection, Michaelic courage and insight.
August 3rd Uranus retrograde, August 4th Jupiter square Pluto, August 7th Lunar Eclipse mid Aquarius, Venus oppose Pluto 15th August, Solar Eclipse August 21st should really tell the story and bring to a head,(both the pimple head and the smarter than smart intellectual head), all the troubles and debates concerning President Trump, his staff, the social political economic crises concerning healthcare, immigrants, land rights, pure water and air rights, big corporate pollution and greed, taxes, guns, women’s rights, rich vs. poor, all the machinations and plutocratic power mongering of war and threats of war with Korea, Putin’s Russia, China seas and investments. It may look like the world is ending, but it could be birth pangs, labor pains, of a higher consciousness attempting to be born.
All these thinks and things may take till Jupiter conjuncts Saturn in Aquarius in 2020, and the following few years for a true sense of social economic justice and opportunity to truly arrive.
First week of September brings many a new dream of the future and a redemption of the past as we hit into Full Moon in Pisces September 5th. Sun trine Pluto September 9th and Venus trine Saturn September 12th brings sure footing and long-term security in view and at hand. Water signs, planets and houses are what parts of life love and security both hide and reveal themselves now.
