It’s Wednesday afternoon as I write this. We’re coming down from the energy of a powerful Aquarius Full Moon and now stand under a fast-changing sky.
Currently the Sun is in Leo and the Moon in Pisces; this is romantic, passionate, creative, perhaps even dreamy energy. With all the pressure mounting, it may be impossible to escape from reality. Still, the planets suggest that there are spontaneous, delicious pleasures in the “here and now” for us to enjoy if we so choose.
There are other important shifts occurring in the sky now and through the weekend. Yesterday, Mercury entered Virgo after its recent transit through Leo. Astrologically, Mercury rules the mind, communication, siblings, intellectual processes, and property.
In Leo, this has been a time for exploring creativity, confidence and the courage to chase one’s passion and to speak one’s truth. Now, with Mercury entering its home sign of earthy Virgo, expect to get down to business, details and facts. All of the world’s greatest ideas would be lost if there were no desire or dedication to see them through to completion.
Also, today is the last day of Mars in Virgo. Tomorrow, on Thursday, July 29th, Mars enters Libra and will transit through that sign until mid-September. Expect rapid changes within relationships during this time.
On Friday and through the weekend, there are important aspects that suggest that important change is afoot. On July 30th, Mars opposes Uranus and Mercury trines Pluto; on July 31st, Mars conjuncts Saturn; and on August 1st, Mercury enters its shadow phase on the way toward its next retrograde.
As Mercury trines Pluto, it is due to bring a deeper, more solid understanding of facts as they stand and of what needs to change in order to bring progress and healing. The days surrounding Mercury’s shadow and retrograde motion are when important information tends to surface. Expect to have penetrative conversations and communication that leads to a potentially priceless discovery.
As Mars triggers the T-square, it will call for quick decisions, but recognize that what you are working toward is greater stability. Mars conjunct Saturn is starting us on a new relationship cycle that will last for at least two years. Remember: any relationship is only good to the extent that it meets the needs of both people involved.
It’s likely that we are deepening commitments at this time or, on the other hand, facing a difficult separation within relationships. The unknown may seem scary, but trust that the changes we are making are due to restore balance, peace, harmony and stability. Choose consciously based on your highest truth.
I’ll be back with more astrology soon enough. In the meanwhile, I’ll be here writing horoscopes, working with astrology clients and doing henna.
