It’s a good day to look at what isn’t working and consider a fundamental change in the usual. Total surrender may be needed to break free from a self-defeating pattern or social structure that appears invincible.

The Sun in Leo squares Uranus in Taurus today amidst a Grand Air Trine involving Saturn Rx and a Void Cancer Moon opposing Pluto Rx in Capricorn.

Something needs to change, although you may have been conveniently avoiding it. It might seem like you just need to try harder or keep going and never give up; and, while that might be true, surrender is also needed.

How can you break free from deep rooted expectations – either your own or others’?

How can you make life choices that actually feel good instead of doing what you’re “supposed” to do?

The Cosmos might throw unexpected news at you forcing an abrupt change or disruption in the usual. But change in this case is good, because it’s a beautiful opportunity to break out of a bad rut.

You might consider upgrading to the latest technology… or step out of your comfort zone in fitness… or start speaking up… or just do life in a totally different way.

Just make sure you don’t take it too far. It’s vital to maintain your standards or keep working toward your objective, but a radical ‘let go’ may be needed to ultimately succeed.

You no longer have to live for other people’s opinions.

Cracks might start showing in relationships or people you rely on for support or information. It may be time to burn some bridges. If it’s an alliance that supports your true self, you might accept diversity and self-sufficiency… but stay committed.

The time to over-sacrifice yourself is long gone.

Life eases up around August 12 but you don’t want to miss this powerful New Moon opportunity to finally and unashamedly be yourself.


Disruptions and Liberation

August 2 – August 8, 2021

  • Monday, August 2: Sun opposite Saturn Rx, Moon in Gemini
  • Tuesday, August 3: Venus trine Uranus, Mercury square Uranus, Mercury trine Chiron Rx
  • Wednesday, August 4: Sun trine Chiron Rx, Moon in Cancer
  • Thursday, August 5: No Major Aspects
  • Friday, August 6: Sun square Uranus
  • Saturday, August 7: Moon in Leo
  • Sunday, August 8: New Moon in Leo

Everyone’s squaring Uranus this week and it may be a week of rebellions and disruptions.

Pressure may finally reach breaking point.

Perhaps you receive some unexpected news that throws you a little off balance. But you sort of knew this information already. It can no longer be ignored now.

Decisions up until last week determine your next 20 year cycle (roughly) but the rest of the year focuses on shifting you into those decisions which means…

Disruptions may occur in relationships this week – especially your relationship with society or groups of the past.

Some may feel unsettled or anxious, depending on how easily you adapt to the new and different.

The overall objective this week is liberation from expectations – whether expectations from self or authority figures such as parents or people in the spotlight who set the standards for everyone else.

As far as relationships are concerned, vulnerable, humble communication can be beneficial. Power struggles can create unnecessary drama.

This week’s waning Cancer Moon opposes Pluto before Sunday’s New Moon in Leo which opposes Saturn and also squares Uranus. The Moon is having a rough week and may want to sleep from exhaustion after all the freedom fighting.


August 2021

Clarity and Calm

The month of July may end with unresolved issues or mental unrest. However, August provides various opportunities to become mentally calm and clear.

The key to this month is to become aware of what you feed your mind and how it affects your quality of life. False information or media programming can keep you trapped in unnecessary confusion, stress, anxieties, or other forms of suffering.

To keep your mind clear, it’s imperative to be extremely selective with information or media sources you’re exposed to. Don’t be afraid to turn off the TV, leave a social media platform, or get fed up with the political, religious, or Hollywood agenda used to control your mind, and your life.

A regular meditation practice may help some. Or, you might keep your intellect busy with research that makes your life better. Clearing out distractions that don’t align with your personal objectives can also support mental clarity and relaxation. Take time to care for your mind.

Those who are off track may experience an actual crisis or emergency this month; however, a clear mind can allow you to sail right through it.

After removing information sources and media entertainment that don’t serve your personal objectives and your well-being… now you can relax. Also, your natural creative inspiration and intellectual brilliance can flow through your actions, allowing you to achieve your best potential.

The whole month provides different opportunities to break free from mental tyranny so you can ENJOY your life and work, rather than get lost in social indoctrination or misled beliefs that make you suffer.



Conscious Choices and Life Changes

After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated material securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.
