Energy shift again this week, as there is a Full Moon in Pisces on the 26th, then Mars goes Direct on the 27th.
Last week Mercury went Direct after a rather difficult Retrograde time period that coincided with 2 of the Eclipses this Summer Eclipse Season 2018.
After Mercury goes Direct, mental fogs begin to lift as issues we were previously questioning begin to clear up.
And out in the world it happened almost in a textbook astrological fashion.
A few days after Mercury went Direct last week, the jury finally ended deliberation and found Trump’s campaign manager Manafort guilty on 8 felony counts ; his ex lawyer Cohen admitted guilt and implicated Trump; and Molly Tibbets who was lost for weeks was finally found dead in an Iowa cornfield and her killer was apprehended.
In your own life, did any issues clear up last week for you too? If not this week it will likely happen soon, as in some cases it takes up to 10 days or so after Mercury is back Direct before clarity and direction are found. Mercury went Direct on the 18th/19th of August.
Adding to the feeling of direct motion this week is the fact that Mars goes Direct on the 27th.
Mars is desire, will, assertion, force, and action. When Mars is Retrograde, deep in our souls we are deciding what we truly want and/or what action we will take or direction we choose to move toward.
After the 27th you will begin to know more clearly what you want. Give it up to 10 days or so before you are entirely clear. Taking action will begin to come more easily too, as will the courage to do what is needed or wanted.
In the greater world, people or countries that have held back in any way will begin to be more decisive and more ready to take action.
But the “corner will not be turned” out of the old chapter and into a new chapter until “hand of time” Saturn goes Direct on September 6.
Then 3 days later there is a New Moon in Virgo on the 9th. The New Chapter is ‘”earthed” in reality after that.
But coming back to this week, Sunday the 26th is a Full Moon in Virgo/Pisces at 7:56 AM EDT.
This is usually a very gentle full moon. But a Venus square Pluto aspect that day will likely bring more intensity than usual. And of course a direction-changing forceful Mars will also be strong in our energy fields for a few days.
The Full Moon has the Sun in Virgo and Moon in Pisces.
Virgo is order and efficiency, simplicity and discernment, reality in the material world, and needs for purity and perfection on the physical plane of existence. It sees what is wrong or flawed and seeks to correct or fix it.
Pisces is other-worldly, dreamy and idealistic, sensitive and unconditional, flowing, feeling, and connected to the worlds of consciousness and the world of dreams, metaphors and symbols.
They both can be selfless and doing for others or a cause bigger than themselves.
So at this Full Moon in Pisces, put your ego away and surrender to the forces of nature and the Universe.
Find a balance between outer world reality (Virgo) and inner dimensions of consciousness (Pisces). Do your best to combine body (Virgo) and soul (Pisces). Though many religions try to separate them, making the body an enemy and the soul heavenly, in actuality they belong together all the time: Soul giving energy, consciousness, and purpose to our sacred vessel bodies.
Venus square Pluto that same day could bring some relationship challenges, meant to help us transform old patterns that no longer work in the relationship.
Then on Monday the 27th, Mars goes Direct and time to begin to move forward.
Last week the Mueller investigation showed us it has some claws now, and Donald Trump is in trouble.
As the heat gets more turned up, he will likely try to distract through making other issues more important, so watch for world conflicts, especially with Syria and Iran. China, and North Korea also bear watching.
In October/November Trump’s natal Mars in Leo is triggered by Jupiter in Scorpio and transiting Mars in Aquarius. That is when he will be fighting for his life and perhaps turning up the heat on world conflicts too.
The economy could also be challenged this Autumn and Winter, as transiting Saturn opposes the USA natal Venus and Jupiter, signifying gravity affecting USA sense of security, well being, and positive feelings.
For Donald Trump 2019 and 2020 will be most challenging,as Pluto will oppose Trump’s natal Venus in Cancer and Saturn in Cancer. Security, safety, and well being will be in conflict for him. This is when impeachment will likely be front and center for him.
It is obvious to most now, I believe, that the world as we have known it is leaving us.
All is happening for a reason, as we are moving out of an old Age and moving into a New Age of Aquarius.
Feelings of doom and gloom need to be replaced by a knowing that “we the people” are now responsible for rebuilding our country and world.
And the foundation for that world is formed with our higher values and principles. Many will be in desperation and survival to the extent that they will not care about these values.
But when one sees the bigger picture of world transformation, one can divorce oneself from desperate fear, hatred of enemies, and panic.
Trump is meant to be in this position in our world now. And he will likely not go down as easily as Nixon did. The comparisons between those eras and Presidents is remarkable, so similar.
The job was not finished back in the ’60s and ’70s.
Now the young people of this country can be mentored by the elders who went through the Nixon years, as long as those elders stay aware that the world is being left to future generations who must shape this new revolution and evolution with their signature, not ours.
Quit complaining about Trump and the people who follow him. You are playing into his need for attention and drama and his narcissism. We are adding to the division of cultures in our country and world. There is nothing to fight against. There is plenty to fight for.
We can concentrate on keeping our higher values and principles, being aligned with the Universe and our Souls, keeping spiritual and humanitarian perspectives, and fighting to be heard and fighting for what we believe in.
There is no going back to “normal” anymore. We are in a New Era on the way to the Age of Aquarius. Let’s make the best of it!
