ASTROLOGY SNAPSHOT - JULY 10
This lunar month begins with a delicious new moon in Cancer which closes out the recent eclipse cycle. However, the impact of the eclipses plays out until the next set of eclipses in 6 months from now and will continue to work in our lives at a more subtle level and reach full culmination by the end of the year. I found these eclipses were impacting the collective in ways that I have not seen before and my sense is that this is due to the nature of the greater cycles at play which are acting as a container of great revolution and change.
The current dynamics have an equalising energy. This is the signature of Aquarius and the new paradigms that are wanting to emerge. What is playing out is making us realise that we are all in this story together! It appears that one of the keys to solving the problem of the pandemic moving forwards is that we have a unified global effort... you can not get more Aquarius than this! This makes me wonder about the reality of that realisation and the impact this approach will potentially have on addressing our environmental issues etc. This is the top down patriarchal dynamic crumbling and the new solutions being forced upon us are activating new ways of being with each other and the world.
The full moon this lunar month is going to activate this Aquarian energy as it is happening at the same degree of Aquarius that the Saturn / Jupiter conjunction occurred at Solstice December 21st last year. Tune back into what was going on in your life then? What were you visioning. I remember this time as being filled with vision and hope. There were massive meditation events and people were so hopeful. This lunation has the potential to reactivate this impulse and this will be amplified even more next lunar month as we have another full moon in Aquarius (this is a rare event)! This is not a coincidence and it's events like these that give me hope that we are moving strongly towards a new world.
Uranus is approximately half way through its transit through Taurus. Think of new (Uranus) Earth (Taurus). Saturn has been squaring Uranus and is symbolic of this great restructuring that is wanting to happen to create a new Earth and new ways of being on Earth. However, some of the great tension we have all been feeling is connected to this dynamic being a tense square and this can bring about the painful kind of change where we are pushed in ways that are uncomfortable to ensure we transform and evolve!
The Astrology of this year looks like we are not going to be allowed to just continue on as we were and pretend that nothing happened. I hoped that this pandemic would have settled down sooner however, this is not the case and I can't help but feel that this is life's way of making sure the change truly happens!
The grand restructuring of our reality will continue. The rules are changing constantly and this is because the current rules and laws don't actually match who and what we are now or what we are becoming as a species! Old outdated structures are collapsing before our very eyes and there is a great amount of fear and overwhelm in the field as a result. Don't get pulled into the fear!
What is breaking down needs to, it's time for it to change. The cycles are constantly in motion and they are natural. Life has certain laws that mean we can not just keep growing, consuming, producing, profiting... it is unsustainable and it seems these natural laws have a way of ensuring everything stays within these cycles of ultimate balance.
However, if you stay centred and stay within, you will know that it's actually all ok. Open your wise heart to embrace all that is coming and this lunar month will support you to see.
This lunar month kicks off with the yearly new moon in the sign of nurturance Cancer. This is a moment to check in with what truly nurtures you and your community. Pluto is in aspect here so this takes it all down to a deeper level of contemplation of what nurtures and nourishes us.
Pluto speaks to power and Cancer is aligned with the mother in context of family and tribe. However, Pluto invites us into a deeper conversation with the primordial, original great cosmic mother. In most spiritual lineages (not religious) there is an acknowledgement of the great cosmic mother who birthed everything in reality.
This new moon is an invitation to feel into the power of creation, the power of the original mother and to feel into what this means to you personally.
Whatever comes through at the new moon will ripen fully at the full moon in Aquarius. As I shared already, this is a special full moon that is activating the impulse for renewal! You may receive insights and visions. We may also see potential innovation as to how we are going to move forwards collectively.
Venus and Mars are dancing together closely all month with most of this dance playing out in Leo - the sign of the King/Queen archetype. Leo is generous love and this may be a moment to tune into what you need and to understand exactly what it is you need to be in your highest expression. Also, think about what it is that supports you to keep your heart open.
The shadow is the narcissistic potential with these dynamics so my suggestion is to stay grounded and to consider what makes you happy without taking from others or harming others! Remember, Pluto is watching this month and you can not get past the powerful gaze of this energy.
If you have a practice or belief system that supports you, go deeper with it. Look after yourself and stay out of the fear. This will support you to align with the highest frequencies of the new paradigms that ARE emerging!
MAJOR THEMES & DATES
(i) NEW MOON IN CANCER - June 10th everywhere
This New Moon is a moment to check in with what truly nurtures you and your community. Pluto is in strong aspect here so this takes it all down to a deeper level of contemplation of what nurtures and nourishes us and asks us to reflect on our relationship to power and life force and how we use this energy to create and support others as well as bring forth that which is within us!
(ii) FULL MOON IN AQUARIUS - July 23rd/24th
This full moon is activating the power point of last years Grand Conjunction Solstice! This was an exhilarating time and we all had hope. Try to remember what you were doing on December 21st last year? What were you visioning? This full moon is a moment where this intention will receive a blast and activation of that original impulse
I am sharing more and more on <<<Instagram>>> these days so please come over and connect with me there. I am doing more videos and sharing on the cycles!
:: There is of course so much more going on this lunar month which I am weaving into rituals for people participating in <<<The Lunar Project >>>
Look between the cracks of what is breaking and notice what is getting ready to emerge! So open your wise heart, embrace these times! Really know these possibilities are emerging and allow yourself to then go inwards as the old structures crumble around you, but as the dust settles, we will see new ways of rebuilding better than before! By 2025 we will really begin to see this playing out in the world!
With love always,
