Weekly Astrology Forecast- Week of 7/10-16

***All times are EDT***

Monday July 10th-
At 2:52am Pallas Athena moves out of Leo and into Virgo, shifting the Wisdom and Warrior Goddess from fire to earth, from fierce will to focus on selfless service. Pallas in Virgo is wonderful for taking the expansive vision of the Goddess into the details and specifics. Discernment, clarity and seeing not just the big picture but all the little pieces and how they fit together are possible with Pallas’ journey through Virgo. We do need to watch out for being overly critical and judgmental- but we do not want to discount the discernment of Truth this Goddess can bring. Tonight Pallas aligns with Mars while both align with Regulus the Royal Fixed Star of Leadership. On a personal level we can tap into sacred service, discernment and work towards clarity- but this can be intense astrology politically and militarily with the God of War and the Goddess of War aligning with a powerful fixed star as well as the Nodes of Destiny & Karma. Reigning in ego so it does not lead is key.

At 7:40am Mars moves out of Leo and into Virgo- shifting the Warrior and Drive from Fire to Earth, yang to yin, expressive to contained. Mars in Virgo can help us to channel our energy in practical, discipline, focused ways and get getting organized, efficient, healthy and integrated. Mars in Virgo can be a perfectionist- so we need to watch out for being extra critical of self and others. Yet he is also gifted in seeing what is not working so it can be fixed. Mars’ ingress into Virgo activates the royal fixed star Regulus. Regulus in Virgo is all about service that is based on humility, connection to the feminine and being a steward of the earth.

Both Pallas Athena and Mars trine the Mean North Node at 0’06 Taurus and sextile the South Node at 0’06 Scorpio from 8:55am to 11:56am- linking the Warrior Goddess of Wisdom and the War God of Will and Drive with the Nodes of Destiny and Karma at the Alpha degree of their signs. We are about to have the Mean Nodes change signs (on Wednesday) and today and tomorrow we have the last activations of the North Node in Taurus and the South Node in Scorpio. Pay attention to where the Universe is showing you where your karma and shadow lessons are that need to be addressed and where you are being asked to grow and evolve. Consider this the 11th hour where certain things MUST be addressed before moving forward. We do have the option to not address things but then we carry them forward with us into the next cycle. The choice is yours!

It is interesting to note that Mars rules the South Node in Scorpio but when the Nodes change he will rule the North Node in Aries. When the Nodes change it will be Mars who directs our evolution and growth- but right now he is still pointing to where our unresolved karma is. Mars & Pallas link with both Nodes harmoniously so pay attention to any connections made or revelations incoming about the past and future- and what needs to be acted upon in the present moment to effect positive change and/or to close doors to the past.

Mercury at 29 Cancer opposes Retrograde Pluto at 29 Capricorn- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Lord of the Underworld. Mercury/Pluto is great for therapy, shadow work, research and investigation. Yet the tense nature of this opposition can make for unexpected revelations, emotional intensity and power/control dynamics in communication. Using this astrology to dive deep and confront emotions and things from the past is key.

At 9:59pm Mars cojoins Pallas Athena at 0’21 Virgo- linking the God of War and Will with the Warrior Goddess of Wisdom and Strategy. If you need to take action on something, take a stand and do so from discernment- this astrology is exceptional. Yet Mars can be hot headed and Pallas Athena when only coming from the head and not embodied can be disconnected from her feminine essence. Balancing yin with yang, feminine with masculine- is key right now. Do not let the ego lead- but let the feminine direct your actions and the masculine take those actions based on what she sees. This is the best use of the martial energies today!


Tuesday July 11th-
At 12:11am Mercury moves out of Cancer and into Leo- shifting the Mind and Intellect from water to fire, yin to yang, inward focused to externally focused. Mercury in Leo is great for creative self expression, sharing one’s Truth and in the process having fun! In the coming weeks speak up and express yourself honestly and authentically! Just watch out for narcissism and hubris- being open to seeing and honoring other’s perspectives and Truths is key.

Mercury at 0’04 Leo squares the Mean Nodes of the Moon in Taurus and Scorpio at 1:07am- creating a T square between the Mind and Intellect and the Nodes of Destiny and Karma. When planets square the Nodes we are brought to a cross roads where we can choose to keep on doing what we have always done (and keep getting what we have always gotten) OR we can move into a new direction and grow. Pay attention to communication and information that comes in today as it can shed light on the past and the future and what decisions you can make to re-orient your present moment trajectory!

At 8:31pm Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Juno in Cancer, linking the King of the Gods with the Queen of the Goddesses in feminine signs of embodiment and receptivity. Jupiter and Juno are husband and wife in mythology and the link between these two bodes well for personal and professional relationships and commitments that are founded on generosity, compassion and heart connection. Relationships that have solid foundations can flourish under these energies- while ones that do not can show themselves more clearly. Juno is deeply committed to home and family and Jupiter supports her in setting boundaries and taking physical care of home and family in grounded ways. Give thanks for the relationships and commitments in your life that ground you and support your growth! They are worth their weight in gold!


Wednesday July 12th-
At 8:06am the Sun in Cancer squares Chiron in Aries- creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Wounded Healer planetoid. Sun/Chiron brings up old wounds and pain around the masculine, around home/family, mothering/nurturing and more. This can bring opportunities to dive deep and confront old wounds and pain that run us. It is an excellent day for inner work, therapy and shadow work. We need to FEEL in order to heal- particularly in regards to relationships with men and the masculine part of us that has been forced to disconnect from emotions due to patriarchal consciousness and ideas about what it means to be a man. Be tender with yourself and others. Knowing that 99.9% of what others do have nothing to do with us can help us stay trigger-free today.

At 12:52pm the Mean Nodes of the Moon move into Aries and Libra shifting the Evolutionary North Node of destiny into the sign of taking action, taking a stand and having agency- while the the South Node of karma moves into the sign of relationship and keeping the peace at any cost. When the South Node is in Libra we are asked to look at where we sweep things under the carpet so as to keep things the way we want them to be- rather than deal with them head on. The North Node in Aries is about taking action, expressing healthy anger and speaking Truth. The coming 18-19 Month Nodal Cycle will bring us opportunities to deal with things head on if we so choose!


Thursday July 13th-
There are no major aspects today.


Friday July 14th-
At 3:44am the Sun in Cancer sesquiquadrates Retrograde Saturn in Pisces- creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. Sun/Saturn can be heavy and with the Sun in Cancer we can be dealing with heavy or karmic things in home/family dynamics or emotionally. Today is a very Saturn day as he makes tense aspects to the Sun, Mercury and Ceres from early morning until afternoon. If you feel depressed or low energy- know that this, too, shall pass. Saturn is forcing you to address what is at the roots and foundations of situations or relationships. Taking time to tend to reality and deal with it is key.

Mercury in Leo quincunxes Retrograde Saturn in Pisces at 11:17am- creating tension between the Mind and Intellect and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. Mercury/Saturn is great for serious and focused conversations and thinking- but the shadow of the tense aspect can manifest as heavy conversations, negativity and rigidity in thinking. Seeing and dealing with reality without being pessimistic but also without checking out/escaping is key!

At 2:52pm Retrograde Saturn in Pisces quincunxes Ceres in Libra- creating tension between the Great Father and the Great Mother. This can bring up some very heavy energies in family dynamics- with parents, siblings, children, co-parents and more. Old stuff from childhood can come to be addressed as well. Saturn demands we take off the rose colored glasses and see things as they are. Both Pisces and Libra tend to be signs that want things to be lovely and peaceful and hears and roses- but the Saturn energy today can be removing (or ripping off) the rose colored glasses so that we are seeing WHAT IS- not what could be, should be, might be or used to be. From this place of seeing reality we are empowered to make the changes that need to be made. Use Saturn’s energy wisely!

The Sun in Cancer sextiles Uranus in Taurus at 7:02pm- aligning the conscious self and ego with the Rebel, Revolutionary and Great Awakener. Sun/Uranus is great for change, innovation and profound shifts. Both Cancer and Taurus tend to be attached to safety, security and the past. Right now we are being awoken to what really matters and shown what it is time to let go of. Being willing to do things differently and make some radical shifts is key right now. This is amazing astrology after a heavy day of Saturn energy. Liberation comes after we do the serious and focused Saturn work. Clear Karma (Saturn) and then set yourself free (Uranus)!


Saturday July 15th-
At 2:42pm Venus in Leo quincunxes Retrograde Neptune in Pisces- creating tension between the lower heart and the Higher Heart. Venus/Neptune can be uber romantic, idealistic and compassionate but can also create issues with boundaries, seeing reality and making healthy decisions in Love and money situations. Venus in Leo wants passion and romance! While Neptune in Pisces surrenders the ego and moves towards Higher Love. What does Higher Love mean? Contemplating this and not making it about anything or anyone external can be a deep inquiry today. (hint: Higher Love for the self from the Self) This is the 1st of 3 aspects between Venus and Neptune due to Venus’ upcoming Retrograde journey (7/22-9/3). As she stations Retrograde she does so in a DOUBLE QUINCUNX to Neptune! Pay attention to all that is unfolding from 7/15-7/30- with rose colored glasses OFF and eyes of discernment OPEN.

Sunday July 16th-
At 7:05pm Uranus in Taurus sesquiquadrates Ceres in Libra- bringing tension between the Rebel, Revolutionary and Planet of Chaos and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. On Friday we had Saturn/Ceres and today we have Uranus/Ceres. The pot is getting stirred in home/family relationships, with mothers or children, in partnerships and marriages (Ceres is in Libra after all) and more. If we have been sweeping things under the carpet- be prepared for things to come up and out. The good news is we can only truly deal with what we are looking at! With Ceres in Libra in the coming months we have her tensely interacting with ALL of the social and transpersonal planets. She quincunxes Saturn and Jupiter, opposes Chiron, quincunxes Uranus and Neptune, opposes Eris, squares Pluto and cojoins the Karmic South Node from now until mid September when she moves into Scorpio. This means the Libra scales are being upset and what is swept under the carpet is coming into the Light. Pay attention to what is unfolding this weekend as it gives you insight into where your lessons and opportunities for growth and healing are unfolding in the next 2 months.


Have a blessed week…
