It’s a good day to take a breather, rest, and do the usual in a whole new way. Watch for cracks in the usual securities, especially family, childhood home, or groups of the past. For some, it may be time for the inner journey.

As the New Moon in Cancer trines Neptune Rx and opposes Pluto Rx, the moon goes void-of-course all day. It’s a quiet day in the Cosmos until the Moon finds itself in Leo tonight.

In quietude, feelings ignored may rise to the surface. What are your feelings trying to tell you that you didn’t see before?

You can use this opportunity to change course.

For example, you might keep working hard, but make your work more playful. Conversely, how can you turn play into work?

Either way, it would be wise to get clear on what you really want, going forward. Whether you’d like an average life or a spectacular life doesn’t matter. You can genuinely enjoy both. Just be CLEAR within your own self.

A full awakening may be possible for some, if you realize you’ve been played by a lot of illusions or manipulation. In fact, the entire human realm is one illusion on top of another….

However, most people will continue to rely on traditional securities such as family, friend groups, religion, governments, modern medicine, career, finances, or social status for security and happiness. Or, continue to sacrifice the soul for public opinion….

In this case, the best you can do is be proud of your position, and make it a good act. You might focus on improving yourself and your body and invest in people of influence. It may not give you real security or a deeply fulfilling existence, but you can still enjoy a pleasant life, with gratitude.


Take Your Life Back

July 5 – July 11, 2021

  • Monday, July 5: Sun sextile Uranus, Mercury square Neptune Rx, Venus sextile North Node, Moon in Gemini, VOC Moon
  • Tuesday, July 6: Venus opposite Saturn Rx, Mercury square Neptune Rx, Juno Rx conjunct South Node
  • Wednesday, July 7: Venus trine Chiron, Juno Rx conjunct South Node
  • Thursday, July 8: Venus square Uranus, Moon in Cancer
  • Friday, July 9: New Moon in Cancer
  • Saturday, July 10: Moon in Leo
  • Sunday, July 11: Mercury in Cancer until July 27

Venus takes over the spotlight this week from Mars as we continue the emotional intensity of Cancer season. Venus will sextile the North Node, trine Chiron, and trigger the relentless Saturn Uranus square and its imperative need to shift at the foundational level.

The week begins with a confusing, fuzzy Mercury square to Neptune Rx, the last of three aspects this year and ends with an emotional New Moon on Thursday, with Mercury in emotional Cancer on Sunday.

The challenge this week is to avoid sacrificing yourself for others. They can not give you the security you seek.

You might realize the need for change, yet habitually resist change at the same time. This is the story all year.

The trick is to make definitive life changes, but stay GROUNDED.

Those who remain with their head in the clouds in spite of continuous reality checks must reckon with fears and disappointment as they fail to achieve their castle in the sky.

However, for those who are well-established in their new life direction, the path becomes clear and details naturally come together, as you trust your intuition to step into the unknown and take grounded, committedTANGIBLE action steps. Grounded Venus won’t have it any other way.


July 2021

Moving Into The Unknown With Confidence, Or Lack Thereof

The beginning of the month starts with some powerful oppositions and square aspects which can feel tense. Stress is due to trying to move forward while still holding on to old patterns or relationships of the past.

Staying focused on a SINGULAR task or objective allows you to channel powerful energies into a worthwhile achievement. Otherwise, energies get wasted on pointless drama or distractions.

Old securities may start to crumble on July 4 when the Sun in Cancer squares Chiron, and that can feel upsetting; however, you can use painful issues as inspiration to release false securities, then establish new securities in your life that are more reliable.

Venus takes over the spotlight from Mars July 6 – 11 as Mercury squares Neptune Rx. People will either be actively developing their life passion, or lost in a FANTASY.

Make sure you’re on the right track because Mercury takes center stage July 11 while Jupiter and Neptune continue to retrograde in Pisces. You may either feel healthy optimism while accomplishing a grounded objective… or be caught in a GRAND DELUSION.

Around mid-month it will be easier (not so scary) to release the past and move into the unknown.

However, July 15 – 23 may feel unsettling unless you allow your perspective to be solidified or EVOLVE.

After the Sun positions itself in Leo on July 22 followed by an Aquarius Full Moon, you may feel a powerful shift in energy, allowing you to open up to others and expand into the future – as long as you’re confident in your own choices and perspective.

The challenge this month is to accept the UNIQUE paths of others without feeling threatened by differences in relationships. You can accept different choices of others, because they will either reinforce your own solid choices or expose cracks in your choices which need to evolve or mature. This is really the key to the whole month.

You know you’re making the right choices if you can stay steady and focused on your OWN tangible action which leads to tangible results and genuine self-pride.

By the 28th, you may be feeling more confident and capable OR feel locked in self-doubt and uncertainty. It all depends on how well you did on the test of your personal choices. You can continue to enjoy your solid, grounded choices, or make changes so that you CAN.



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.

Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and enjoy exciting new opportunities that come your way.
