monday july 3rd-
at 12:23am venus in taurus semisextiles uranus in aries, aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener! today venus harmonious links up with the uranus/chiron semisextile which is exact end of the month! this long term transits spans from 2009-2021 and brings opportunities for awakening and healing in subtle but profound ways. with venus linking with both there’s great energy for shift, change and healing expressing in relationships, self-love and self-worth, relationship to the material world (finances) and more! venus/uranus asks that we take a risk and do something different! with venus in earthy taurus- a sign that likes the familiar and the known- embracing change is usually not easy but luckily this aspect is more harmonious ;)

venus in taurus sextiles recently stationed retrograde chiron in pisces at 4:15pm, aligning the Goddess of Love and beauty with the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron is an aspect of heart healing- opportunities to deepen in intimacy and connection with ourselves and others is available right now. venus is in embodied taurus, while chiron is in spiritual and otherworldly pisces. when we bridge body and Spirit and honor both sensation/material reality and intuition/mystical reality- we can experience profound healing in our lives! with venus triggering the uranus/chiron semisextile- staying open to and embracing opportunities for shift, change, evolution and healing in relationships, finances, self worth and self Love is key today!

mercury in cancer semisextiles the north node in leo at 8:12pm, bringing important communications, information and insights to Light. mercury is tensely aspecting the south node- so we need to be aware of where we are detached from our emotions, our feelings and our hearts right now. compassionate, heart centered communication and thinking is recommended!

venus in taurus (29th degree) sesquiquadrates jupiter in libra at 9:28pm, creating a minor tense aspect between the two Lights (the lesser and Greater Benefics). venus/jupiter wants to have fun and enjoy life! with venus and jupiter in venus-ruled signs the desire for love, pleasure, beauty and abundance is strong. the key is to make sure we don’t over indulge, turn to excess or stay on the surface wanting nice things/to be loved/validated as a means to avoid what is going on beneath the surface. with venus at the karmic 29th degree there could be completions, endings or culminations playing out in Love and money situations right now.

tuesday july 4th-
mercury in cancer semisextiles ceres in gemini at 10:11am, aligning the mind and intellect with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. this is a great aspect for communicating about our needs for nurturing, nourishment, safety and security. with cancer and gemini linking the focus is on emotional connection and intellectual rapport.

venus moves out of taurus and into gemini at 5:11pm, shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from earth to air, body to mind, stability to movement. venus in gemini values communication, learning and freedom. relationships that are based on intellectual exchange and mental rapport are valued right now! just watch out for the shadow of venus in mercurial gemini: superficiality, being commitment-phobic and having a hard time sticking with one thing (or person) to see it all the way through.

at 5:51pm mercury in cancer squares uranus in aries, creating tension and friction between the lower mind and Higher Mind. mercury/uranus can be great for sudden insights and unexpected information arising that helps us to see the Bigger Picture. yet this is a square and it is between a sign that likes comfort and the known (cancer) and a sign that like change and the unknown. the degree to which we are attached to security or the past is the degree to which this aspect can be experienced as intense. the mind can be restless today- so take some time to ground down and anchor into the earth so you are present in your communications with others but also in your travel and movement (mercury/uranus can be accident prone).

at 9:19pm jupiter in libra quincunxes retrograde neptune in pisces, echoing the aspect these two made on 10/23/16 and 5/17/17- making this the 3rd and final aspect between these two. jupiter/neptune creates tension between the two planets of spirituality, idealism and optimism in the two signs that want to see everything as beautiful and wonderful but at times can have difficulty with seeing reality and facing shadow. typically jupiter transits are benevolent and positive yet a quincunx to neptune can be quite different. the goodness of jupiter in libra can only be fully accessed when we go through all the intense aspects jupiter in libra is making to neptune, pluto and uranus that has been bringing us face to face with all that is not balanced/peaceful/harmonious/loving (ultimately what libra is seeking). yes jupiter in libra is GREAT for relationships- but first we have to go through the purifying fire to let go of all that is not great for relationships and deeper connection in our lives. because both jupiter and neptune like to see the good and positive this transit can be a time of personal or mass delusion, deception, denial and avoidance of reality. if we have an all hearts, roses and unicorns view of life and we think we can avoid dealing with shadow by simply shining a Light on it (in shadow work you don’t shine Light on it- you bring it to consciousness, very distinct difference)- this transit can remind us that both Light and shadow are the dance of Love (rumi) and that actually mastery is about learning to navigate both and not get lost in the illusion of either. there can be big time testing of our spiritual ideas, beliefs about reality and vision of Truth. if we tend to wear rose colored glasses- this transit can be a time of taking them off so we can see, face and learn to Love reality as it IS. this can be a time of disillusionment- which actually means letting go of illusions which is a good thing in the long run! if on the other hand we tend to be deceptive and untruthful- jupiter/neptune can exacerbate that and also exacerbate the karmic consequences of doing so- so be aware and navigate the terrain with care and consciousness in the coming months! this aspect shows up in the birthday chart of the USA- so this energy is something those of us in the USA will be journeying with in the coming year.

wednesday july 5th-
mercury in cancer trines retrograde chiron in pisces at 2:32am, aligning the mind and intellect with the Wounded Healer planetoid. between yesterday and today mercury has been triggering the uranus/chiron semisextiles- bringing opportunities for awakening and healing via communication, information and insights. mercury/chiron is about healing communication. with both in water signs empathy, compassion and understanding for ourselves and others is key right now. the mercury/chiron aspect is harmonious whereas the mercury/uranus aspect was intense. it may very well be that shocking events/information coming to Light leads to healing. being willing to be waken up and shaken up out of our attachments, stupors, or pulling our heads out of the sand is key right now.

mercury in cancer (29th degree) sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces at 6:32am, creating tension and friction between the linear, logical mind and the planet of intuition and irrationality. mercury/neptune can be great for dreams, imagination, meditation and inner knowing. yet the minor tense aspect can create friction between intellect and intuition, logic and precognition. finding ways to honor our mind AND our Soul’s knowing is key right now.

mercury moves out of cancer and into leo at 5:20pm, shifting the conscious self and ego from water to fire, yin to yang, reflective and inward to shining and outward expression. mercury in leo is passionate and expressive in his thoughts and ideas! this is a great position for loving to learn, grow, be curious and share knowledge with others. just be aware of the shadow side of mercury in leo: always being the teacher, never the student. also needing to be the one center stage and the one who knows everything ;)

the sun in cancer triggers the jupiter/neptune quincunx that was exact yesterday. the sun trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 5:46pm and squares jupiter in libra at 7:44pm- bringing focus to where we are checking out, in denial and avoiding reality. sun trine neptune is typically lovely- mystical, creative, compassionate and loving. and typically sun square jupiter is fun loving, confident and expansive! yet because jupiter and neptune are in tense aspect this astrology can exacerbate jupiter/neptune themes of wanting to live on the surface, only focus on the Love and Light and avoid facing and dealing with the shadow. finding ways to see what IS so we can face it and address while also being fully aware of what is possible and working to make that a reality is the key to mastery right now. SIRIUS

uranus in aries sextiles ceres in gemini at 10:07pm- aligning the rebel, revolutionary and Great Awakener with the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. from june 25th through friday july 7th ceres triggers the saturn/chiron square and from today to friday the 7th ceres triggers the uranus/chiron semisextile. there’s some deep activation of the Great Mother right now- bringing into focus home/family situations, parent/child dynamics, safety/security issues, and environmental concerns. uranus/ceres is a harmonious aspect that is helping us see what we need to do to shift things. what changes are necessary to bring things back into balance in personal situations but also collective ones? giving ourselves and others freedom to grow, shift and change is key right now!

thursday july 6th-
the only major aspects today involve mercury- the conscious mind and intellect. at 5:57am mercury in leo sesquiquadrates mean black moon lilith in sagittarius- bringing intensity into communication and thinking. mercury/BML is good for diving deep and getting to the Truth of matters. just watch out for power/control dynamics and emotional manipulation in communication! being overly self focused and narcissistic can get us into trouble!

mercury also parallels pluto at 9:10pm echoing the mercury/pluto opposition that was exact last week thursday. mercury/pluto creates tension and friction between the mind and intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. going deep and being willing to get to the root and Truth of matters is supported. this is a great aspect for being in therapy! yet the parallel can incite power struggles between us and them- with a subjective stance that we are right and they are wrong, we are good and they are bad. if we are being immature or childlike in our communications or actions- we can get some explosive energy waking us up in the coming days (particularly with all the pluto flying around)! watch out for being passive aggressive, emotionally manipulative and trying to control from behind the scenes. this is not an empowered stance! and if someone else is doing this to you- set your boundaries and step away! very deep energies afoot right now- so pay attention to your dreams for insights into your personal and collective dramas unfolding.

friday july 7th-
mercury in leo sextiles venus in gemini at 6:18am, aligning the mind and the heart in harmonious ways! mercury in leo is passionate and expressive, while venus in gemini is fun loving, carefree and spontaneous. this is a great aspect for having heart to heart talks where we share our thoughts and feelings with others. seeking to find points of compromise, collaboration and middle ground to meet others upon is supported right now.

at 10:41am retrograde chiron in pisces squares ceres in gemini, creating tension and friction between the Wounded Healer planetoid and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. since june 25th ceres has been triggering the saturn/chiron square- bringing big things to a head in home/family situations, situations regarding children and/or parents, and situations regarding the environment, Mother Earth and her precious resources. chiron/ceres brings up old wounds and pain around being safe, being cared for, being nourished and feeling loved. with pisces and gemini in focus- the disparity between intuition and intellect, fantasy and fact, idealism and reality can be strong. because ceres is in mercury ruled gemini it’s important to have tools to navigate intense emotions that the brain cannot make sense of- like grief, depression, anger, rage and more. attending to what is wounded and broken in us, in situations in our lives and in the world around us is key right now!

venus in gemini sesquiquadrates retrograde pluto in capricorn at 2:39pm, creating tension and friction between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Lord of the Underworld. venus/pluto unearths passion, intensity and depth- but also jealousy, possessiveness, power/control dynamics and hidden shadows. in Love and money situations there can be some deep stuff coming to Light that we need to navigate consciously! yet venus in gemini prefers things to be Light and carefree- while pluto demands we face the depths and the shadows. if we are spiritual bypassing or avoiding facing the Truth- then this kind of astrology can drag us down into the Underworld and force our hand! particularly with the pluto energy incoming this weekend (full moon conjunct pluto, sun opposite pluto)- we cannot escape the depths! so right now the choice is: choose to go willingly or be dragged!

the sun in cancer quincunxes mean black moon lilith in sagittarius at 7:33pm, creating tension and friction between the conscious self and ego and the fierce Dark Feminine! with cancer sun our emotions can be strong and even overwhelming at times. if we (or others) do not have healthy expression of anger and rage we can find ourselves (or others) being passive aggressive or emotionally manipulative- so watch out! lilith in sadge wants the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth-whereas sun in cancer wants comfort and security and at times will ignore the Truth to keep the peace at home (or in herself). finding balance between these two opposing energies is key- but we may first experience them as incompatible which will force us to create a bridge between the two ;)

saturday july 8th-
the full moon in capricorn is exact at 9:06pm PDT, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in cancer on june 23rd. with the cancer/capricorn axis highlighted we have been focused on home/family and work/purpose, inner life and outer life. there has also been a focus on safety and security- as both of these signs have a desire for that, sometimes to the point of revising change. this full moon is a POWERHOUSE of a lunation! the full moon is conjunct pluto- the Lord of the Underworld- and opposite mars- the will and ego. we just had the exact mars/pluto opposition on july 2nd- so think back to then and what has been unfolding in your life (personally but also collectively) since then to see what shadow has been coming to Light. power control dynamics are one of the more negative manifestations of this aspect- with two people, parties, countries warring against each other and trying to get the upper hand. with the full moon in capricorn our willingness to question the structures/traditions/expectations/old paradigms in our lives is so key. pluto is seeking to transform these either by change and evolution OR by death and letting go of what no longer serves. if we work WITH this energy then we work with the energies of transformation! if we resist these energies and hold onto the old/the past/what is known in rigid ways- this kind of astrology can force our hand. the key with the mars/pluto energies is to get the lower egoic will (mars) to be in service to the Higher Will (pluto). if we are trying to dominate and control things as a means to resist change- expect some shocking events that will show who really is in charge (it’s not the ego!). for more information on this lunation check the lunar insight posted a few days to a week before the full moon is exact.

sunday july 9th-
at 3:09am mars in cancer quincunxes retrograde saturn in sagittarius, creating tension and friction between the will, warrior and drive and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. mars typically likes to be direct and take action- yet in cancer he can be more crab like moving side to side and around things. mars in cancer is great for fighting for the underdog and those weaker or smaller- but the shadow of mars in cancer is passive aggression and holding things in until the explode. with the saturn energy this can be compounded- so we need to be aware of when we may be internalizing emotions in ways that will keep them stuck inside and lead to depression/illness OR where we bottle things up and have them explode out in uncontrollable ways. the best use of saturn/mars is to master our anger, will and ego energies.

the sun in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 9:35pm, bringing a carryover of the full moon conjunct pluto energy that happened yesterday. oppositions can bring struggle between opposing view points and because oppositions imply relationships there can be power struggles that unfold between people, groups, countries and more. the sun in cancer wants safety, security and the known- and is a sign that is known to hold onto things way too long and will only let go when it’s crab claw is cut off!!! pluto is about transformation, death and rebirth- but in capricorn it’s all about the powers that be strong arming others and trying to dominate and control. this opposition can be pretty intense and we want to be aware of the Unconscious motivations driving us and others in our lives (personally but also collectively). the best use of pluto is being ready, willing and able to face the shadow and own our piece in perpetuating it. ‘there is no coming to consciousness without pain’ said jung. yet pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. if we choose transformation before it choose us we are in a very different place than if it happens the other way around. become the agent of your own transformation right now. focus on having power over your lower self- steer clear of trying to have power over others or giving away your power.

have a transformational week (called in with grace and ease)!
