It’s a good day to get out of your head and focus on hard work to mitigate self-doubt, stress, or fear. Precision feels especially good today. Take time to get things exactly right in routine actions; feel proud of your achievements.

As the Moon wanes into Taurus from Aries aspecting Jupiter Rx and Mars, Mercury is moving fast toward its conjunction with the Sun, in which both will oppose Saturn Rx on Sunday. Meanwhile, Venus makes a quincunx to Saturn today. All major planets are active but Saturn ultimately holds the power in this scenario.

If you’ve been working with Cosmic energies this year, by now you will:

  • Be clear about your objective
  • Authentically inspired about your objective
  • Focused on your objective – having removed all distractions and non-essentials

If you were unable to remove distractions or non-essentials (especially yesterday), excess can create anxiety or fear from inherent confusion or a missing sense of direction. If you find yourself in conflict with self or others, this is a likely sign of underlying anxiety.

To alleviate fears, you can simply get to work. Focus on something, learn something, work toward something or achieve something.

When the mind is busy working, it doesn’t have time to entertain illusions that keep you trapped in suffering.

In this atmosphere, focused hard work results in deep rest and relaxation not only at the end of the day, but also while you are working. Inner rest AND external hard work are simultaneous.

This kind of balance is the simple “secret” to enjoy every minute of your life. Health concerns, finances, and relationships thrive in this divine balance as well.


Reality Checks or Major Achievement

July 26 – August 1, 2021

  • Monday, July 26: Waning Moon in Pisces
  • Tuesday, July 27: Mercury in Leo until August 11, Mercury quincunx Jupiter Rx
  • Wednesday, July 28: Mars opposite Jupiter Rx, Venus square the Nodes, Jupiter Rx in Aquarius until December 28, Waning Gibbous Moon in Aries
  • Thursday, July 29: Mars opposite Jupiter Rx, Mars in Virgo
  • Friday, July 30: No Major Aspects
  • Saturday, July 31: Ceres in Gemini, Last Quarter Moon in Taurus (square Saturn Rx)
  • Sunday, August 1: Sun conjunct Mercury, Sun and Mercury opposite Saturn Rx

Reality checks continue this week with sharp realizations or finally acknowledging inconvenient truths. It can be a rough week for some or a highly rewarding week for others – depending on your level of integrity and unwavering commitment.

Three major planets change signs this week marking major energy shifts in the collective or your own life. With a Mars opposition to Jupiter Rx and a Mercury opposition to Saturn Rx, you might notice more external conflict than usual – or relentless distractions from people and agendas that only use you or drain you.

Thursday may be a particularly upsetting day if you’ve been wasting your energy on the wrong people or life choices.

In the humble background, Venus in Virgo continues to strive for high quality production with high quality people. Clearing out the clutter of people, resources, or health choices not worth their weight allows you to focus on what truly satisfies and keeps you happy, healthy, and secure.

You can’t expect to hit your target unless you have unwavering focus and you can’t stay focused unless you’re confident and inspired about your objective.

Just be sure to burn the RIGHT bridges while preserving valuable alliances.

If you can tenaciously maintain your standards AND up your game, it can be a powerful week to accomplish goals you were unable to previously achieve.



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.
