***all times are PDT***
monday july 8th-
at 4:42am venus in cancer squares stationary chiron in aries, creating tension between the Goddess of Love and Beauty and the Wounded Healer planetoid. with chiron at a standstill today this aspect is massively magnified. this can bring up old wounds and pain around love, self-worth, relationship, childhood, emotions and more. there is a need to see what is wanting to be felt, moved through and/or addressed right now. healing around the masculine energy- in ourselves or with male figures in our lives- can be in focus as well right now.
venus in cancer sextiles uranus in taurus at 8:32am, linking the lower heart with the Higher Mind! venus/uranus is amazing for positive shifts and change in relationships, self-Love and self-worth. with both bodies in deeply yin signs that are uber feminine the shift comes when we embody more and allow our emotions and desires to express in healthy ways. this is a lovely time to do something different and open to the new!
the sun in cancer quincunxes retrograde jupiter in sagittarius at 8:48am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the planet of expansion and excess. the sun in cancer is watery, emotional and intuitive- whereas jupiter in fiery sadge is more in the moment, passionate and dominant. positively this is great for taking risks and having fun but we can also overindulge and be excessive- emotionally and otherwise. balance is key.
at 3:27pm retrograde mercury cojoins mars at 4’25 leo, aligning the mind and the will in potent ways. mercury just stationed retrograde yesterday so a stationary mercury with mars makes for some extra fire and intensity right now. at best mercury/mars is about speaking up, express truth, taking action and being decisive. yet the shadow here is things can devolve into arguments, aggression, reactivity and impulsivity. with mercury stationary not all the information is in and we need to spend much of july discovering things or going over things from the past. healthy restraint is needed!
chiron stations retrograde at 5’56 aries at 4:39pm, making the Wounded Healer the most powerful planetoid in the sky. themes of both wounding and healing are strong right now. opportunities to face wounds and past conditioning around masculine energy, fire, anger, desire and agency are present. but we can also find any shadow in our relationship to the masculine is up big time right now. healing and wholeness are the goal of chiron- so using his insights and what is arising right now to see more clearly what within us is hindering us and what needs to be integrated is the best way to work the astrology right now.
tuesday july 9th-
the sun opposes retrograde saturn in capricorn 10:07am, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of Karma and Father of Time. the sun is heading to trigger the whole capricorn confluence today through the 14th- which can make for some intensity incoming. sun/saturn at best is about discipline, self mastery and integrity. but the opposition can exacerbate issues with power, control, limitations, restrictions and dealing with karma from the past. we may feel depressed or low energy right now. watch out for power struggles and tune into where you are being asked to complete things from the past so you can move on.
the sun aligns with the mean north node at 17’30 cancer at 5:24pm, linking the conscious self and ego with the node of destiny and evolution. there can be destined, fated events and meetings happening right now. the focus is on home, family, children, fertility, emotions, intuition and the feminine. between today and tomorrow the sun triggers the neptune/north node trine- which makes for extra psychic, empathic energy to be present. use it wisely!
wednesday july 10th-
at 9:31pm the sun in cancer trines retrograde neptune in pisces, creating a lovely alignment between the conscious self and ego and the Higher Heart and planet of mysticism and spirituality. sun/neptune is dreamy, creative, imaginative, romantic and idealistic. this is an amazing time to be open to mystical downloads and Higher Heart healing. attending to emotions and the feminine parts of ourselves is important right now.
thursday july 11th-
at 12:29am mars in leo trines just recently turned retrograde chiron in aries, aligning the will and drive with the Wounded Healer planetoid. chiron is in the sign of mars and speaks to major wounding and healing around the masculine- anger, aggression, rage, agency, will and drive. the lovely aspect between mars and chiron show that healing is possible right now. interestingly we have the Divine Lovers (venus and mars) both linking with chiron and uranus in a matter of days. important things can be happening in relationship right now. getting in touch with our fire, creativity, healthy desire and passion is key right now!
mars in leo squares uranus in taurus at 11:01am, creating tension between the will and drive and the Rebel and Revolutionary. our desire for freedom and wildness is STRONG right now. this is great for taking action and going after what we want but we want to be aware of where we may be acting impulsively, reactively or hastefully. grounding is important.
retrograde jupiter in sagittarius sextiles pallas in libra at 1:44pm, aligning the planet of expansion and abundance with the Wisdom Goddess. this is great for seeing the Bigger Picture and realizing Greater Truths. jupiter in sadge is in pursuit of THE truth and pallas in libra goes about finding it in balanced ways. pallas in libra is focused on justice, fairness and equality. of course he is retrograde so this may manifest as more of an internal awareness of Truths- with action taking place later as we gather all the pertinent info (mercury is retrograde after all!).
friday july 12th-
at 9:19am retrograde mercury in leo sesquiquadrates retrograde neptune in pisces, creating tension between the mind and intellect and the planet of intuition, confusion and illusion. these two just made this same aspect on july 3rd- 4 days before mercury stationed retrograde. so for the last 10 days we have had one very long and strong mercury/neptune aspect. this can be lovely for psychic ability, creativity and inspiration but it can also be ungrounded and out to lunch. the logical mind is at odds with the intuitive mind. too much logic and we don’t listen to our dreams and intuition. too much spiritual focus and we can wear rose colored glasses, see what we want to see and be deluded or deceived. discernment is an important thing to cultivate right now! ask a lot of questions- of yourself and of others- and pay attention to what is NOT said as much as what IS said. pay attention to actions, too ;)
saturday july 13th-
there are no major aspects today.
sunday july 14th-
at 7:51am the sun in cancer opposes retrograde pluto in capricorn, creating tension between the conscious self and ego and the Lord of the Underworld. sun/pluto can be deep, passionate and intense- but it can also unearth or exacerbate power struggles, shadow, jealousy and possessiveness. the sun is completing his trigger of the capricorn confluence which is the biggest astrology of 2019 and is showing us what is karmic, stagnant, stuck or toxic in our lives and what we need to do to release it/complete it. be aware of what is going on behind the scenes- in yourself and with others right now.
have a blessed week…
