monday july 19th-
at 7:52am mercury in cancer squares chiron in aries, linking the mind and intellect with the Wounded Healer and from today to tomorrow mercury is been triggering the uranus/chiron semisextile. we have had a minor aspect between uranus and chiron from 2009-2021 (last exact one was may) bringing radical and revealing insights into our wounds and pain personally and collectively with opportunity for deep healing if we choose to not look away but instead show up and face our wounds and pain. mercury is supporting this in our conversations, communications and thinking right now. this is a time to be intimate with our emotions, feelings, sensitivities, vulnerabilities and needs. seeing where we have shut those down, blocked them in ourselves and others, and where we have an opportunity to do things different now is on tap! open your mind and come from a Higher Perspective today! don’t act out of your wounds and pain but instead turn towards them with compassion and care and see how that shifts things within and without <3
tuesday july 20th-
at 12:05am venus in leo sesquiquadrates retrograde chiron in aries, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. venus/chiron brings up old wounds and pain around worth, value and self-Love. opportunities to be more aware of where old wounds and pain are running us can help us to make better choices going forward. or we can just be in denial, delusion and avoidance of reality- spiritual bypassing what is staring us in the face and missing the opportunity to grow and open our hearts more. what will you choose?
mercury in cancer sextiles uranus in taurus at 2:37am, linking the lower mind with the Higher Mind in expansive ways! mercury/uranus is great for bolt out of the blue awarenesses, radical insights, illuminating communications and information coming to Light. we are able to think outside the box right now! with cancer and taurus involved- these two signs have deep connections and attachments to safety, security and the past. this is an opportunity to let go of that which we hold onto that does not serve- in thinking, in possession and more.
at 5:38pm retrograde jupiter in pisces quincunxes vesta in the first degree of libra, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the Priestess asteroid Goddess of focus and devotion. this can be lovely for focusing on others and being of service- yet both pisces and libra can over focus on others at the expense of the self so boundaries and healthy self care are key!
mercury in cancer sesquiquadrates retrograde jupiter in pisces at 7:10pm, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of expansion and excess. this can be great for learning, teaching, travel and mind expansion but just watch out for talking too much, gossiping, being too heady and not knowing when to be silent and listen ;)
wednesday july 21st-
at 2:08am eris stations retrograde at 24’47 aries, bringing the Goddess of discord, chaos and upheaval into strong focus. eris is the Goddess who threw the apple of discord and caused the trojan war- but she is not all bad as she is often made out to be. she can only cause discord when there is unrest and shadow underneath that is not being acknowledged or dealt with- and her role in mythology is to bring to Light that which others don’t want to see but need to look at in order to evolve. being willing to look at what you don’t want to look at and call out in yourself and others that which is hidden is powerful medicine that must be held with much consciousness, awareness and compassion. watch out for anger and rage today (eris is in aries after all) and have healthy outlets for it so it can be worked with creatively rather than destructively. to learn more about eris my ERIS MASTERCLASS is now available on demand- https://divineharmony.com/astrology-blog/eris-masterclass-now-available-for-purchase/
mars in leo trines a stationary retrograde eris in aries at 5:53am, aligning the will, warrior and drive with the Goddess of discord and chaos. mars and eris are brother and sister in greek mythology- they are the God and Goddess of war. with these two teaming up in harmonious ways we have a lot of fiery energy that support us in taking action and initiating things- we just need to be aware of the war-like aggression that can be stirred up as well. using mars’ energy to take conscious action and move forward with positive intention is recommended right now.
at 5:37pm venus moves out of leo and into virgo, shifting the Goddess of Love and beauty from fire to earth, yang to yin, in the spotlight to behind the scenes. venus in virgo is focused on service, health, healing and practicality. she loves to help others but can at times overdo that- so knowing when to help and when people are not ready to help themselves is key. both finances and relationships benefit from being grounded, realistic and sensible. just watch out for being overly perfectionistic, critical and judgmental of self and others under this transit. virgo is the sign of the Divine Feminine- and as venus ingresses into virgo she aligns with the fixed star regulus. major activation of the return of the Divine Feminine and the rebalancing of the scales of masculine/feminine (ultimately it’s about Union of both, not about one overpowering the other) is happening right now. if you have not seen the blog i wrote about regulus moving into virgo in 2012 you can find that here- http://www.divineharmony.org/cosmic-insight-divine-harmony/divine-harmony-astrology-blog/regulus-into-virgo-the-meek-shall-inherit-the-earth/
thursday july 22nd-
happy mary magdalene feast day! mary magdelene’s true role in jesus’ life is being discovered and revealed. in 2016 her status was officially elevated by the catholic church to that of a saint. if you are interested in learning more about her i highly recommend the books ‘rituals in sacred stone’ and ‘mary magdalene revealed’ (there are others too- you can google for them). she is now called ‘the apostle of the apostles’. there are some, like myself, that believe she was the partner of jesus. this is not simply heresy but comes from biblical texts that were buried and hidden that revealed info as such. 2000 years ago as the patriarchal consciousness and monotheistic god with no wife began to take hold- there existed a very different consciousness that understood that both the masculine and the feminine were Divine and that God had a wife- and her name was Asherah. the healing of the split on our planet boils down to the healing of this split between masculine and feminine, mind and body, spirit and soul. to elevate the Divine Feminine and bring her back to her rightful place of balance with the Divine Masculine is key to the evolution of humanity and in my opinion it is key to the survival of humanity as well! take some time today to honor the Divine Feminine within and without <3
at 5:45am venus in virgo opposes retrograde jupiter in pisces, creating an opposition between the two Benefic planets. put these two together and the desire to have fun, enjoy life and be generous is expanded! yet we can also overdo with jupiter and be all Love and Light a la pisces and not want to do the work of discernment (virgo) to see clearly into the shadows. have fun but have healthy boundaries right now ;) with veus aligned with Regulus on Mary Magdalene feast day we have some super powerful female leadership energy present right now!!! when you focus on humbly being of service- the Universe can use you in mysterious ways. stay open to where you are being called to rise in service today!
mars in leo quincunxes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 7:08am, creating tension between the lower will and Higher Will. this is a powerhouse of an aspect that can unearth or exacerbate power struggles and domination tactics. if we overdo leo we are narcissistic and self focused and if we overdo capricorn we are trying to maintain power at any cost. actions taken right now from ego and a desire to dominate others can have very intense karmic repercussions. don’t do it!!! use this energy to surrender your ego to a Higher Will and let that Higher Will lead right now. pluto in capricorn is seeking to take down and/or transform any structures/ideas/situations in our lives that are not life enhancing and healthy. working with the Great Transformer by being proactive about these death and rebirth situations is recommended right now.
at 7:26am the sun moves out of cancer and into leo, shifting the conscious self and ego from lunar to solar, yin to yang. the sun rules leo and is very well placed in this sign! the coming month is a time to shine, be creative, be on stage, lead and do so from the heart! just watch out for the shadow of the sun’s journey through leo- narcissism, needing adoration and attention and having a hard time focusing on others ;)
the sun in leo quincunxes retrograde jupiter in pisces at 9:10pm, creating tension between the ego self and the planet of expansion and excess. too much of good thing can amplify ego and self centeredness- and with jupiter in pisces we have to watch out for spiritual ego. finding balance between ego and dissolution of ego, self and sacrifice for others is key.
at 10:34pm retrograde jupiter in pisces squares mean BML in gemini, creating tension between the planet of expansion and excess and the fierce Dark Feminine. words and thoughts can be easily manipulated right now- so be aware of how you speak, what you hear or read in the media. also be aware of any tendency to bury your head in the sand – so as not to see the Truth!
friday july 23rd-
the full moon at 1’26 aqua is exact at 7:37pm, marking the midway point of the current lunar cycle we are in that began with the new moon in cancer on july 9th. with cancer and aquarius activated in this lunar cycle we would do well to focus on how we express and feel our emotions. do we collapse into them and drown? do we disconnect from them, disassociate and come from the head? this is the first of two aquarius full moons- the next one will be an astrological blue moon. so we have two full moons illuminating the Aquarius part of the sky and our wherever that falls in our charts (listen to horoscopes for more info). this can magnify collective issues, community care and where we need change- but it can also bring to Light what is blocking our personal and planetary evolution. with the rulers of this full moon (and the next) being saturn and uranus- the saturn/uranus square is in the spotlight! change and resistance change are battling each other. learning to discern baby from bathwater is key. for more info on this full moon check the lunar insight posted a few days before the full moon is exact.
saturday july 24th-
a 3:17am retrograde chiron in aries semisquares ceres in taurus, creating tension between the Wounded Healer and the Great Mother asteroid Goddess. chiron/ceres brings focus to home, family, mothers and children. old wounds and pain arising right now can go back to childhood- and being present with what is coming up instead of trying to avoid, deny or turn to addictions to numb out is key.
mercury in cancer trines retrograde neptune in pisces at 9:35am, linking the lower rational mind with the Higher Heart and intuitive knowing. this is great for dreams, creativity, compassion, intuition and psychic perception. with both bodies in water signs our empathy, kindness and altruism is supported right now. pay attention to your dreams, inner knowing and the inspiration that runs through you. give yourself time in nature, making art, meditating or volunteering today <3
at 10:02am mercury in cancer semisquares the north node and sesquiquadrates the south node- bringing tension between the mind and intellect and the nodes of destiny and karma. pay attention to what you think, say, hear or learn today. watch out for emotional attachments to the past and emotional subjectivity that does not allow for you to see the Truth in the now moment!
sunday july 25th-
at 6:32am mercury in cancer squares stationary retrograde eris in aries (just stationed 7/21), creating tension between the mind and intellect and the Goddess of Discord and Chaos. communication can be shocking, revealing and suddenly unexpected today. shadow is coming to Light and we want to be aware of our emotions, feelings, subjectivities, anger and aggression. having healthy outlets for anger and rage is key. steer clear of being passive aggressive or overtly aggressive and instead be honest and speak from the heart. being willing to see what is not being looked at- in ourselves and in others and the world around us is key!
mercury in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn at 1:15pm, 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. mercury will trigger the pluto/eris square all day today- so pay attention to what is arising in communication, thinking, information and ideas!
***mercury triggers the pluto/eris square today so pay attention to revelations in communication and watch out for power struggles***
