JULY 24 to AUG 3, 2014
THURSDAY JULY 24, 2014
Thursday is the luckiest day of the year when the Sun makes its once-a-year rendezvous with Jupiter — and both happen to be in fortuitous Leo this year. Thursday is specially packed with planetary energies when Venus trines with Neptune to enhance creativity and a sensitive connection to Universal Love, the Sun aligns with Jupiter to expand our confidence and faith in life, while Mercury connects to Uranus, Saturn AND Chiron — a day filled with mental energy.
FRIDAY JULY 25, 2014
On Friday Mars leaves Libra, where it has been very uncomfortable since December 2013, and dives into the steamy waters of Scorpio, where it feels truly at home. All of the warrior god's natural characteristics, good and bad, are much stronger here. Mars's aggressive energies are more intense, more passionate, more loyal, more stubborn, crueler, more secretive, more manipulative, more jealous and (surprise!) more sensitive here than in any other sign. It will be an intense couple of months until Mars enters Sagittarius September 22, 2014.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY JULY 26/27, 2014
Overnight Saturday/Sunday we come to the Leo New Moon. That is the lunar phase we call the SACERDOTE MOON which spiritually kick-starts your life ... Take time to reflect on becoming who you were born to be ... Rather than focusing on a specific task, go to the center of your heart and meditate on the core strength of your soul ... Perhaps you are here to bring beauty, whether through art, justice, or fashion ... Perhaps you are here to help heal the offering of the world, whether through your writing, activism, or as a physician ... Or maybe you are here to bring insight and truth where there is confusion and ignorance.
MONDAY JULY 28, 2014
On Monday you may sense doubts about other people's feelings towards you when over-sensitive Cancer Venus is in exact opposition to incisive Capricorn Pluto.
TUESDAY JULY 29, 2014
On Tuesday you get lots of work done quickly and still have time for insightful daydreams when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a positive sextile with Mars while forming an intuitive 180-degree aspect to Neptune.
WEDNESDAY JULY 30, 2014
On Wednesday the harmony and good will is almost palpable when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in positive aspects with Pluto, Venus, Saturn and Chiron.
THURSDAY JULY 31, 2014
On Thursday Mercury finally leaves Cancer after a marathon, five-week stint in the one Sign where Mercury feels really bored. Starting now, Mercury fast-forwards through fiery Leo in just two weeks. Mercury and Jupiter will have their annual rendezvous — this year in upbeat Leo. This will be an exciting two weeks of tweeting, chatting, messaging, emailing, blogging and vlogging for sure.
FRIDAY AUGUST 1, 2014
On Friday watch out for bullying and vengeance when distrustful Scorpio Mars squares off against over-eager Leo Jupiter. Mars is suspicious of ulterior motives and ready to pick a fight to avenge a perceived wrong. Jupiter, meanwhile insists on being right about everything and dares anybody to challenge him.
SATURDAY AUGUST 2, 2014
On Saturday Mercury joins the Mars/Jupiter wrestling match which got underway on Friday. In alignment with Jupiter in arrogant Leo, Mercury is itching to ratchet up the volume of the fight and to broadcast everything via webcam, broadband or any other means available to as many people as possible.
SUNDAY AUGUST 3, 2014
Overnight Sunday/Monday Mercury we come to the Scorpio First Quarter Moon, which is the lunar phase we call the THIEF MOON in honor of Prometheus ... the first thief ... and it was thanks to his larcenous thievery that humans are not living in burrows and dens like animals ... Rituals and meditations tonight can focus on your "inner thief" — the things you rob yourself of — self-esteem, self-love, self-confidence, for example. By robbing yourself of these qualities, you are vulnerable to real-life thieves ... Tonight's lunar phase is also reminding us about the ability to take what we need without asking in advance. It is about getting back what is rightfully ours.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between August 4 and 10 when the AQUARIUS FULL MOON occurs. This is the summertime moon of generous gifts which we associate with Antinous/Vertumnus, the shape-shifting God of summertime bounty and generous gifts. We call this the DONUM MOON when magical rituals are performed for fortuitous gifts .... More details next time ....
