Astrology July 31, 2022: Mercury Opposes Saturn, Sun Trines Jupiter

Cosmic Weather:

Some woulda, coulda, shoulda thoughts may be mixed in with our early morning brew – although a further reading of the distilled tea leaves also suggests that it is probably a good time to just learn from our mistakes and move on – as well as to maybe stop being so critical of ourselves! Referencing here, of course, cerebral Mercury, in proud Leo, opposing judgmental Saturn in hippie-minded Aquarius (2:05 am).

Too, probably all we really need to do today is make it to happy hour when the empowering Leo Sun trines Santa Claus Jupiter in “no stopping us” Aries (6:36 pm)! Of course, whether or not Mr. Claus will actually be able to make it down our personal chimneys loaded up with lots of goodies for each of us will largely be dependent on whether or not we have been naughty or nice. Thankfully, too, unlike naysayer Mercury-Saturn, Sun-Jupiter is much more forgiving and charitable and usually more easily swayed by such things as a warm glass of milk and a plate full of cookies.

Sun trine Jupiter tends to be one of the more delightful aspects of life as its hopeful ray often sets the stage for more love, passion, and understanding to ripen and come forward; lady luck may also be less of a stranger now. Too, how many times have we heard that “timing is everything” or the idea of being in the right place, at the right time? Of course, discerning the right timing is also often at the very core of using astrology as a leveraging tool to practically guide us in our daily lives, in addition to using it as a vehicle for better understanding of ourselves and our world. That said – and assuming we have already done enough of the fancy prep work – this is likely an excellent time to launch adventurous new beginnings as our confidence, optimism, and vision are likely all cresting.

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Astrology July 30, 2022: Leo Sun and a Waxing Moon in Virgo

Tags

, , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

On this Saturn-ruled Saturday, the last one in July, we are privy to a radical costume change of sorts, about midday, with waxing Luna wrapping up her glam stay in flamboyant Leo the Lioness and bound for the ‘reap what you sow’ wheat fields of more modest, discerning Virgo the Virgin (2:10 pm).

Overall, the Moon’s pivot to detail-oriented Virgo, in association with the creative Leo Sun, especially favors organizing, assessing, or evaluating those projects or activities that we – particularly our egos – may personally identify with, which also may incorporate our special unique crop of talents or gifts.

Included in the mix here, we may also want to allocate some time or resources now to re-arranging or decluttering our immediate surroundings so as to introduce or establish a more palpable sense of energetic flow around us so we can, ideally, function more optimally. Too, fresh off the heels of the New Moon in Leo, we do want to be birthing something new now, hopefully seeing it get its cool angel wings at the time of the Full Moon in Aquarius on August 13th.

Luna will remain in efficient Virgo until early Tuesday morning.

Numerologically, today, 7-30-2022, is both a “3” and “7” day. The number three suggests a special knack or finesse for socializing or getting along with others, which can ultimately help to make us more influential or persuasive; this number is also associated with creative expression. Meanwhile, the number seven appeals to our more intuitive or mystical side. Also, “30” is often viewed, numerologically, as a period of time when we “come into our own .” For instance, Jesus was about 30 years of age when he started his ministry.

“The psychotic drowns in the same waters in which the mystic swims with delight.” – Joseph Campbell

Born On This Day: English novelist and poet Emily Brontë in 1818 in Thornton, West Yorkshire (d. 1848), best known for her novel Wuthering Heights. Here’s a line from that classic work:

“If he loved with all the powers of his puny being, he couldn’t love as much in eighty years as I could in a day.”

Astrology July 10, 2022: Sun Sextiles Uranus

Cosmic Weather:

“The purpose of life is washing the daily dust of life off our souls.” – Pablo Picasso

On this second Sunday of the seventh month, we find the nurturing, self-protective Cancer Sun in sextile formation with liberating agent Uranus in Taurus (4:39 am), an aspect that may prime us for wanting to temporarily abscond from our cozy, little nests in order to partake or participate in refreshingly different activities or outlets. Sun-Uranus suggests a mild pop of awakening energy. Ideally, also a positive time for integrating the past with the present, with an eye toward the future.

Also, very supportive of this influence is waxing Luna’s ingress into adventurous Sagittarius (4:34  am), especially her trine to optimistic, philosophical Jupiter in pioneering Aries (6:04 pm), an aspect which, among other things, can serve to power a spirit of inclusion, including a desire to embrace other cultures, nationalities.

“I suppose leadership at one time meant muscles, but today it means getting along with people.” – Mahatma Gandhi

Too, often With the Moon in Sadge, there’s a special knack to being able to readily feel at home, no matter where we are in the world geographically.

Astrology July 7, 2022: Libra Moon Trines Saturn, Squares Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

“Just as your car runs smoothly and requires less energy to go faster and farther when the wheels are in perfect alignment, you perform better when your thoughts, feelings, goals, and values are in balance.” – Brian Tracy

On this Jupiter-ruled Thursday, we find the Waxing Moon in agreeable Libra, a positive platform for attempting to inject more harmony and balance into our affairs as we continue to foster the development of our Cancerian New Moon intentions.

Luna’s flowing trine to Saturn Rx in Aquarius (3:18 pm) suggests leaning into the past for wisdom, relying on the tried-and-true, and chipping away at excess. Overall, this lunar aspect serves to provide us with a more realistic assessment of matters and also supports well-thought-out collaborative efforts that strive to benefit groups, group causes, or the collective as a whole.

The Moon’s square to subterranean Pluto in Capricorn (9:04 pm) may put us in touch with hidden elements, including our suppressed emotions, which may suddenly surface now for processing. While there’s a chance for some shiny gold to be mined here, a good measure of honesty and transparency may be required in order to obtain this special perk.

Vesta is also stationing retrograde today (5:30 pm) in Pisces. We may find ourselves questioning or reflecting upon something that has, up until now, perhaps been a rather steady focus or maybe even an inspiration to us. Vesta will go direct on October 5th.

Astrology July 5, 2022: Mars Enters Taurus, Mercury Enters Cancer

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“The loftier the building, the deeper must the foundation be laid.” – Thomas a’ Kempis

Overnight, a big cosmic shift occurred: energy planet Mars exited originating Aries, and descended into slow, deliberate Taurus (2:04 am), the zodiacal sign of money, values, and possessions. However, by no means, does this portend that the feisty red planet has essentially been “put out to pasture” just because it’s now plodding around, seemingly lackadaisically, in this bovine-friendly sign. Rather, Mars has officially entered its building and consolidation phase in Taurus; meaning, that whatever was so exuberantly thrown up against the wall, while Mars was rocketing through its home sign of Aries, during the last six weeks, will now likely be rigorously tested and debated to see whether or not it will admirably stick or ignobly fall by the wayside like so much else in our lives. 🙂

(Too, on Bloomberg Surveillance this morning and news elsewhere, more and more talk about a recession coming with commodity prices falling, including oil cratering today.)

Mars remains in Taurus until August 20th. Also, a key time for Mars here will likely be when it conjuncts change-agent Uranus at the end of July and early August. More on this later.

Also, overnight, communicator Mercury reportedly followed Mars’ lead and fled chatterbox Gemini in a knee-jerk bid to return to the sanctity and the security of the womb in Cancer. (No telling how the US Supreme Court will weigh in on that one!) While Mercury in Gemini is basically an open book, its position in receptive Cancer is much more tenuous and cautious. It also tends to speak from the heart in this Moon-ruled sign. Too, Mars and Mercury are sextile to each other today (2:37 am), ideally making it easier to put into words some of the things that we’ve maybe been feeling of late.

“The more you do speak from the heart, rather than thumping the agenda, people will listen or relate or open themselves up more.” – Drew Barrymore

*All times EDT

On this day in history: On July 5, 1994, Amazon.com was founded in Bellevue, Washington by Jeff Bezos, a Capricorn Sun native (b. January 12, 1964).

Astrologically, among the aspects, that day, the authoritative Sun in Cancer was separating from a trine to structuring Saturn in Pisces, an excellent influence for creating something (i.e. a business) with good longevity prospects. Innovator Uranus, which rules technology and the internet, was also conjunct imaginative Neptune in Capricorn and sextile to transformative Pluto in Scorpio, the latter planet also governing matters that affect the masses. Enterprising Mars also had just entered versatile Gemini, the sign connected with commerce. 

“I think frugality drives innovation, just like other constraints do. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out.” – Jeff Bezos

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Cosmic Weather:

“It is better to solve one problem five different ways than to solve five problems one way.” – Mathematician George Palya

On this red, white, and blue Fourth of July Monday, we find the nurturing Cancer Sun sextile to the analytical Virgo Moon (9:02 am), ideally frontloading us with a certain amount of flair or instinct for figuring things out or troubleshooting, including on the homefront. Emotional security is also augmented by having a plan in hand. There may also be a yearning to serve others in practical ways.

The Moon’s square to Venus in Gemini (11:38 am) poises us towards social engagement. Practicing some give and take here also helps to maintain harmony.

Early this evening, Luna trines innovative Uranus in Taurus (7:23 pm). A fun time to partake in something out of the ordinary.

This is also the last full day for motivator Mars in its home sign of initiating Aries, with Mars at the anaretic or 29-degree point of the sign. This degree is sometimes correlated with taking sudden, spontaneous actions that may go against what we had planned. Reasons behind this may be the fear of missing out or a perception that we are running out of time so we give matter(s) one last push, sometimes in desperation. Intellectual Mercury is also at 29 degrees of Gemini today so there may also be more of a propensity for some impromptu, or even hasty decision-making. Very timely here, too, might be heeding some sage advice that Benjamin Franklin, a Capricorn Sun, once gave: When in doubt, don’t. 

Numerologically, 7-4-2022 is both a “4” and “8” day. The number four represents the foundational aspect of our lives and has more of a stable, no-nonsense vibe to it. The number eight represents balance, ambition, and ultimate achievement. It’s associated with great leadership or executive ability. There is also more of an awareness of the importance of giving back to others with this number. It is also linked with the notion of salvation or renewal.

Astrology July 3, 2022: A Waxing Virgo Moon, Mercury Quincunx Pluto

Cosmic Weather:

Putting in my cheery, quarterly appearance. 🙂

On this very first Sunday, in sweltering July, in the northern hemisphere, waxing Luna’s diligent ingress into corrective Virgo territory (8:31 am) suggests a golden opportunity for us to adeptly tinker under the hood to see what might be amiss.

Too, with Luna’s planetary ruler Mercury, in data-gathering Gemini, and quincunx to probing, obsessive Pluto in Capricorn, a possible manifestation here might be that our observations about what’s malfunctioning may duly require us to detail it all in at least a 30-page spreadsheet report replete with picture-perfect margins!

The more health-minded Virgo Moon is also supportive of detox or cleansing efforts.

“Life is an error-making and an error-correcting process.” – Jonas Salk

Also, keeping a close eye now on action-planet Mars nearing the end – or 29th degree – of adventurous, assertive Aries, often a time associated with sudden, last-minute efforts to accelerate or push things forward before we transition into other areas. Mars will enter bullish Taurus on Tuesday, July 5th, a period when we seek to anchor and consolidate matters, including our finances.

“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.” Epictetus.

(By the way, Albert Brooks also offers up in his wonderful new book From Strength to Strength that a person’s level of satisfaction is generally derived from dividing up what they have by what they want. Such a nice, simple formula, isn’t it? I think practicing gratitude for what we have can also help to foster a greater sense of inner well-being.)

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On July 3, 1863, the Battle of Gettysburg, the largest battle ever fought on the American continent, ends in a major victory for the Union during the US Civil War.

Astrologically, that day, warrior Mars, in confident, authoritative Leo, was applying, one degree, to an exact square to transformative Pluto, an intense aspect often associated with a strong desire to assert one’s dominance, no matter the cost. The protective, more patriotic-minded Cancer Sun was also sextile Pluto and trining wounded healer Chiron in Pisces.

Gettysburg is considered the “high watermark of the rebellion.”  After Gettysburg, the Confederate army would never again regain its momentum.

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Cosmic Weather:

“Libraries were full of ideas—perhaps the most dangerous and powerful of all weapons.”Sarah J. Maas

We begin our Monday with mental Mercury conjunct expander Jupiter in Pisces (2:06 am). This aspect is supportive for most communications in general as it tends to broaden our outlook and deepen our understanding as well as raise our level of tolerance. Particularly favored now are teachings, writings, or publishings of a more comprehensive or voluminous nature. On another level, mystical or spiritual-type awakenings are also possible.

Additionally, Mars in Aquarius is sextile to Chiron in Aries today (at 4:59 pm) which can aid us in dealing with lingering or thorny issues in a more forthcoming, direct manner.

Also, not to be forgotten or ignored: Waning Luna is standing her guard in secretive, perceptive Scorpio all day!

On This Day in History: On March 21, 2006, the social networking, microblogging site “Twitter” was created (although it didn’t launch until July of that year).

Astrologically, that day, communicator Mercury – retrograde in Pisces – was applying to a conjunction with breakthrough Uranus, the planet which rules technology and the internet. The pioneering Sun in Aries was also conjunct the futuristic North Node and trine to structuring Saturn in self-expressive Leo.

Twitter founder Jack Dorsey’s first-ever tweet recently sold for the equivalent of $2.9m (£2.1m) to a Malaysia-based businessman. The tweet, which said “just setting up my twttr,” was first published on March 21, 2006, and was auctioned off by Mr. Dorsey for charity.

Astrology March 20, 2022: The Spring Equinox and Aries Season

Tags

, , , , ,

Cosmic Weather:

“And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been”Rainer Maria Rilke

Today we celebrate the Spring Equinox – a time when day and night are about equal length as the Sun passes directly above the equator. This also officially kicks off the start of the astrological new year and the Sun’s ingress into pioneering Aries (at 11:33 am).

The life-giving Sun, which represents our identity and the basic urge to be, is said to be exalted in the “I Am” sign of Aries the Ram – meaning it is deemed to be the prime locale for the Sun to exuberantly shine and do its thing. The sudden re-emergence of the burgeoning life force in nature during the springtime, when everything is abloom, is thought to mirror the vast creative ability of Aries to manifest its desires in the outside world.

Mars-ruled Aries, the first of the fire signs, signifies energy that is initiating, spontaneous, brave, and courageous. Likewise, Aries season is the time when we are strongly encouraged to get the ball rolling with new projects, fresh starts, prolifically planting seeds of intention.

“Never underestimate the power you have to take your life in a new direction.” – Germany Kent

On another level, the Spring Equinox itself – with its equal amount of light and dark – is perceived to be a good time to reset the balance of things in our own lives so as to make them more enjoyable and fulfilling.

“Life is a tightrope walk. One has to balance the do’s and don’ts.”Haresh Sippy

*All times EDT

On This Day in History: On March 20, 1969, Beatle John Lennon married Japanese artist and musician Yoko Ono in Gibraltar.

Astrologically, that day, romantic Venus, solidifying Saturn, and the nurturing Moon were all conjunct in trailblazing Aries. Expansive Jupiter and unconventional Uranus were also tightly conjunct in matrimonial Libra.

A few days after John and Yoko tied the knot – and while they were still on their honeymoon – the pair invited members of the press to join them in their honeymoon suite at the Amsterdam Hilton Hotel to protest the Vietnam War (in bed) and preach world peace.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.” John Lennon

Hope it’s a good one! Please be safe and well.

Astrology March 13, 2022: Sun Conjuncts Neptune

Tags

Cosmic Weather:

“If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is – infinite.” – William Blake

This Sunday, the empowering Sun is making its annual conjunction with imaginative Neptune in Pisces (7:42 am). Mingling with our more whimsical or ethereal side may be a welcome adjunct or alternative to the everyday trappings of the mundane realm now. This is often an excellent aspect for any creative endeavors as it can notably add to our envisioning ability. It is also possible that we are filled with a special sense of purpose (Sun) today that we perhaps had not really known or felt before. Sun-Neptune tends to be very supportive of transpersonal activities that transport us out of the domain of the ego and into the sphere of selfless service or into other outlets that somehow reflect or echo our shared humanity. It also can greatly sensitize us to what others are feeling as well as to what is going on in our surroundings. Our intuition may also be a more formidable force now and something we might want to lean into today.

The shadow side of this aspect can include, among other things, behavior that is addictive, escapist, delusional, or deceptive. Too, if it seems that our physical energies are on the decline now, it may be a good idea for us to perhaps take a quiet break or retreat from our regular routine and immerse ourselves in outlets that tend to replenish or restore the Spirit, such as meditation, reading inspirational works, or being by the water.

One famous figure in history that we may all be able to extract some inspiration from today is American Red Cross founder and self-taught nurse Clara Barton, born on Christmas Day in 1821. Barton is a perfect template of someone who publicly embodied the more elevated or higher-frequency side of the Sun-Neptune energy. She had her natal Sun, applying one degree, to an exact conjunction with both Neptune – and progressive Uranus – in the self-mastery sign of Capricorn. During the Civil War, Barton courageously risked her life to bring supplies and support to soldiers in the field.

“I may be compelled to face danger, but never fear it, and while our soldiers can stand and fight, I can stand and feed and nurse them.” – Clara Barton

Barton created the American Red Cross at age 59 and ran it for 23 years. She was also a noteworthy civil rights advocate at a time before women had the right to vote.

Meanwhile, the Waxing Moon will also enter commanding Leo this afternoon (3:32 pm), a possible chance for us to showcase our leadership ability as well as to relay or develop our talents/natural-born gifts. Too, later this week on Friday, we have the Worm Moon in Virgo: the last Full Moon of winter which also symbolizes the return of the robins and other birds to feed.
