The Capricorn Full Moon has passed and now we move through the waning half of the lunar cycle that was begun on June 16 at the New Moon in Gemini.
Now we pick up the pieces and process what has been happening in our consciousness and lives. Over the last several weeks, going back to the Spring Eclipses, we have experienced big shifts in our lives. The heart openings, breakthroughs, breakdowns, challenges, magic, and difficulties over that time period now need to be examined, emotionally and spiritually processed, and put into some order.
On Monday July 6 the Sun will oppose Pluto and will trigger the Uranus/Pluto square, which is still in effect. This will help us to more deeply process what has been changing in our lives recently. Recent relational shifts require more clarity and this Sun/Pluto aspect will help bring issues to the surface. That will aid our ability to process, gain more clarity, and move through the changes.
This aspect will also require that we release old ways and attitudes that are baggage from our past. In so doing we are clearing the decks of our hearts and minds, so our new voyage can be more fully embraced.
The triggers to to the Uranus/Pluto square will help the process of transformation: Monday July 6 Sun opposite Pluto, July 11 Sun square Uranus, July 15 Mars opposite Pluto, and July 25 Mars opposite Uranus. These planetary configurations will continue the process of pushing you out of your old comfort zones, to make way for transformational change in your life.
On July 15, as Mars opposes Pluto, there will also be a New Moon in Cancer. A few days surrounding that date will likely bring much emotional expression and release. Be careful not to be too angry then or too out of control emotionally. We will write more about next week.
The Mars opposition to Uranus on July 25 will also be a full day of important planetary movement as Venus will be going Retrograde then. Relationships will be in the spotlight of your life then and will continue to be through September 6 when Venus goes back Direct. More on that as we get closer to that date.
Then early August will bring a major turning point in our lives, especially so as Saturn goes Direct on August 2. Saturn going direct is like time marching on. It can give a sense of fate and “now it is time”.
Venus Retrograde in Leo, Jupiter in Leo, and Saturn in Scorpio will be doing a planetary dance with each other in early August that brings us to this important turning point in our lives.
Later when Venus goes Direct on September 6, two powerful eclipses will follow: A Solar Eclipse New Moon in Virgo on September 13 and then a Total Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aries on September 27.
The full power of transformation will be erupting in our lives then, and world events will reflect the importance of these eclipses.
These events in the world, which will likely include some economic meltdown and world conflict, will open the doorway to even more breakthroughs in our transitional voyage into the Age of Aquarius.
Right now this week as the Sun triggers the Uranus/Pluto square, there are important decisions to be made on Iran’s nuclear program and Greece’s financial condition.
July 7 appears to represent the time of potential completion of the deal between Iran and the United Nations security council plus Germany. Even if they do agree to a deal, the backlash from Israel and hardliners in the USA and Iran will likely be fierce.
On July 5 the citizens of Greece will be voting by referendum on their government’s debt crisis. If they vote no, they will be speaking against the austerity measures demanded by the lenders in order to help satisfy loans given to Greece.
Greece has a recently “voted in” a socialist government that fundamentally opposes the current Capitalist system. Europe’s future and the future of our global current economic system are being challenged by the crisis in Greece. This past week, banks in Greece had been closed in order to limit withdrawals of money from personal accounts.
And of course the Middle East continues to be in severe crisis with the Islamic State continuing its breakdown of the order in Iraq, Syria, and North Africa. The Egyptian Sinai region is now in conflict with IS as is the Gaza Strip in Palestine.
And the recent Supreme Court decision to make Gay marriage the law of America is a huge step into the Age of Aquarius. We can only hope and pray that the backlash for this from fundamentalist haters is not too severe.
In our personal lives there will continue to be breakdowns of old personal systems that no longer hold heart, soul and spirit. Empty structures and “life support systems” cannot stand up for long.
They will cease to exist as we open our hearts and minds to new consciousness and ways of living our lives. Careers, relationships, home bases, and inner values continue to transform.
Liberation and resulting displays of synchronicity, meaningful symbols, and magic will open more and more in your consciousness and life. Your heart will be bursting more open too as you experience life from a more pure place again, without the need to control everything.
As your ego subsequently loses its power in your psyche and life, you may feel insecure and/or anxious at first, but more and more you will be feeling alive again.
You know the old question “Is your heart in it”? is always an important question to ask oneself. That question can be asked about a relationship or job or place you live. If your heart is not in it anymore, then your heart is dying little by little.
Can you get your heart back into that relationship or home or career? If not it may not last. Or maybe it will last because of your desperate need to totally control your heart and life in familiar ways. But then you risk, through time, of joining the dinosaur gathering of soul dead zombies in a suburb of unhappiness.
Till next week,
