Water for the Thirsty Soul

Everyone has all of the signs & planets somewhere in their birthchart.. As above so below.

Saturday, July 30th, 1:40pm, CDT: We celebrate a fiery Leo New Moon with both Sun (life vitality) & Moon (feelings & emotions) at 7* 16 spirited Leo. Our brilliant Sun, considered the ruler of the Leo electromagnetic field, is powerfully placed here, radiating much warmth, generosity & love from the heart. Confident Leo, the king or queen of beasts, is a natural leader, entertainer, actor, organizer…needing alot of attention/recognition & will get it one way or another. Both luminaries in this charming, benevolent,  creative, self-expressive, dramatic sign beam like a solar-powered spotlight at the Oscars! New Beginnings here we come!

The goddess of Love, Venus, is close to the New Moon at 2* 39 Leo, adding her rays of peace, beauty, balance, harmony, refinement & grace to the mix. Venus is also associated with one’s values…who & what you value, including issues of self-worth.

Not to be Ignored

Wherever we have the 7th degree (*) of playful Leo in our individual birthcharts, or any natal planets close to that degree, we experience an area of life open & ready for fresh creativity & radiant self-expression.  Shine & allow yourself to be recognized for being who you are. Just remember to share the spotlight once in awhile & guard against too much stubbornness, excess controlling behavior, haughtiness & ego-centered pride. Plant the seeds you want to nurture during this New Moon.

Tuesday, August 2nd, androgynous Mercury turns retrograde (apparent backward motion) at 1* earthy Virgo for approximately 3 weeks through Aug. 26th when speedy Mercury once again moves direct (forward) at 19* majestic  Leo. This tiny energy transmitter represents the intellectual components that describe our thinking process; how we absorb, compute & transmit information…communications, technology & mobility could be affected. Mercury in retrograde motion can be a valuable opportunity for reviewing, reorganizing, readjustment, revitalizing, double checking, etc.  It is a perfect time to go within & do some inner healing. After all we’re here not only to BE but to become more consciously whole. (note: not holier than thou) Update any part of your perceptions that may be outdated.

Spontaneous, independent Mars at 4* emotional Cancer will be making a very challenging aspect to electrical, independent Uranus at 4* daring Aries on August 9th/10th which signals extremely active energy bursting forth on the personal/collective stage. Not the calmest of conditions, but then again we are breaking out of the status quo mode. Mars can express through being assertive, courageous, direct, pioneering, passionate, risk-taking, impatient, impulsive, aggressive, angry & combative. The radical disrupter, high frequency Uranus symbolizes the awakener, the liberator & illuminator (lightning)…the rebel, the revolutionary, the eccentric genius, the shatterer of form…sudden & unpredictable, like an earthquake…however I am NOT predicting one.

Feisty Mars at 5* Cancer will then be opposing heavy-duty, cathartic Pluto (birth, death & rebirth) at 5* Capricorn  on the 11th of August. This adds a deeper dimension to upheaval..either in the personal unconscious mind or manifesting through the collective drama. Transformation & regeneration are happening one way or another…might as well cooperate & release the toxins of your psyche. They surface, you accept them & let them go. Easy, right?!?  “Tension is who you think you should be. Relaxation is who you are.” Chinese proverb
