Hungry Bird

(Today’s planetary action: The first quarter Moon in Libra squares the Cancer Sun; Wounded Warrior Chiron stations retrograde in Pisces at 21 degrees; Mars enters Cancer at 9:33 am EDT; Jupiter trines Uranus, ongoing.)

Cosmic Quote of the Day: “Life is not a solo act. It’s a huge collaboration, and we all need to assemble around us the people who care about us and support us in times of strife.” Tim Gunn.

Clearly, none of us can go it alone. Although some of us, at times, may think we can. Just consider, for instance, the many collaborative efforts that often go into simply putting food on our tables, i.e. the involvement by farmers, fishermen, grocers, packagers, truck drivers, food processors, etc. The list goes on. No matter what aspect of life you look at, you’ll usually find that it does take a convergence of energies by many individuals to keep everything afloat. Too, when we are able to gather around us a network of people who really care about us and support us, through thick and thin, that is something that always wondrously resonates within us at the very core of our being and provides us with one of the most endearing sources of comfort and strength we will ever know.

Today, with motivator Mars’ movement into maternal Cancer the Crab, the sign of home and family, where it links up with the life-giving Sun, extra emphasis will be placed on such issues as our roots or ancestry, our connectivity to our tribe, our need to protect or defend our home turf, our desire to care for or comfort those who are close to us, our willingness to express and embrace our emotional nature. There may also be more of a focus on matters concerning real estate, food and cooking, farming or agriculture, patriotism or allegiance to our country. Mars transiting through this sector also is a time to attend to home improvement projects.

Assertive Mars is in its “fall” in feeling-oriented, meaning that it is out of its natural element or comfort zone in this sign. For instance, instead of taking direct action on an issue, Mars in Cancer tends to take a more circuitous approach to getting what it wants, as symbolized by the sideways movement of the crab. Mars will reside in Cancer until August 8th.

Chiron stationing retrograde today also suggests this is a time of looking inward and attending to our own wounds. The first quarter Moon in balancing Libra square to the Cancer Sun signifies that those intentions that were set at the last New Moon are also starting to take shape. We have also seen, in the last few days, with the ongoing and socially reforming Jupiter trine Uranus aspect, sudden shifts among many people in this country (and retailers) regarding the symbolism of the confederate flag. While not everyone agrees fully on how the matter should be viewed, there’s suddenly, at least, an important dialogue on the subject beginning to emerge. The “whirlwind nature” of this movement is also very characteristic of what we might expect to find when expansive, philosophical Jupiter aligns with innovative, equality-minded Uranus, with Uranus always encouraging us to go beyond the safety net of the status quo to take a stand, especially doing so within the framework of a group context.

Would also like to extend a warm birthday greeting to my dear friend Liz, a very important member of my own tribe, who has always been there for me when I needed her to be. Love you, Liz! Hope we’re also neighbors again soon!

“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.” Jack Dempsey, also known as the “Manassa Mauler”.
