We Are All Human
This week’s headline items: Chiron is exalted (stationing) all week; Mars changes signs from Leo to Virgo on Monday morning; Mercury changes signs from Cancer to Leo very early Tuesday; later on Tuesday, Venus starts to slow down (station) — preparing for her Retrograde phase in Leo; the Balsamic Moon phase begins on Thursday afternoon; Neptune’s station ends on Friday — remaining in its retrograde motion until Dec. 6th — and Chiron’s Station phase intensifies on Sunday.
There will be three Moon Void of Course (VoC) phases this week: Monday evening (for 44 minutes), Thursday very early morning (for 1 hour and 15 minutes), and Saturday morning (for 4 hours and 40 minutes).
Now, this week’s Forecast…
Monday, July 10th:
Monday, the Moon remains in pioneering, fast-paced Aries until 7:55pm EDT. Life is an adventure; we’re more open to new ideas and have great enthusiasm for new projects. Patience is certainly not our strong suit at this time, but we can decide quickly and act immediately.
Monday at 7:40am EDT, Mars changes signs from fun-loving, risk-taking Leo to detail-oriented, practical, service-oriented Virgo, where it will journey until August 27th. With Mars in Virgo, we are more inclined to put our energy towards a project that takes care of our day-to-day, practical matters or health issues.
Creating order in our daily lives and knowing what’s coming next is easier for us now. We are better at organizing, planning on a short-term scale, and doing errands at this time. We may feel that we do things better than others right now; therefore, we may not give others a chance to improve their skills or perhaps even show us a new and different way of doing something.
As best as you can, keep the focus on yourself and watch out for impatient outbursts or for the need to be right at all costs. Be of service to others, and remember that perfection is not a goal; it is a journey. How can you move towards improving things in your life rather than having things be perfect all the time?
If you have an Aries Sun-sign or Rising sign, you are going to feel more focused on details and health issues. If you are a Virgo Sun-sign or Rising sign, you will feel quite energized and passionate for the next 6.5 weeks. Channeling this energy into physical exercise, work, or health projects might be advisable.
Monday, in the late afternoon, a Mercury/Pluto opposition becomes exact at 4:48pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Saturday night (July 8th) on; it will remain strong until Wednesday evening (July 12th). This opposition might bring up some very deep issues that need to be discussed. Obsessive thinking, attempts to persuade, insistence on knowing the “truth”, or exposing lies… these are all possibilities now.
We are capable of very hard work and exertion. In particular, we tend to pursue ideas with intensity, making this an excellent time for any kind of research or in-depth study. We may not be able to put our inner thoughts and experiences into words — and maybe that’s as well, given the darkness and intensity of those thoughts.
We may develop a great love of debate, but we need to be careful not to overpower others with our strong opinions, in our efforts to “convert” them — in other words, treating debates or exchanges of opinion as battlegrounds.
Intense conversations and connections feel more “real” than superficial ones. We want to dig out the truth about our feelings and the world we’ve built. As best as you can, try not to obsess about what someone said to you or what you’ve heard: We may take things personally that were actually meant to empower us. Here’s what it comes down to: Could you allow yourself to go deeper and tap into your true inner power?
As best as you can, take it one moment at a time; as best you can, resolve issues through cooperation and stay objective. When you notice that you are taking things personally and starting to get defensive, take a deep breath and ask yourself: Is this really about me? Or my past issues? Or their’s? How can I ground myself in the here and now? What might change if I decided to focus on nurturing myself?
Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 26-29 degrees of Cancer, Capricorn, Aries, Libra, or 0-3 degrees of Leo, Aquarius, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you will be more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo, or Scorpio (Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo; Pluto rules Scorpio).
Monday at 7:11pm EDT, we enter a Moon VoC that will last for 44 minutes, until 7:55pm EDT. Use this intuitive time to make some adjustments in your life. As best as you can, find creative solutions to any seemingly unsolvable problems. Make space both for connecting with family (or simply communicating with loved ones) and for nurturing your personal goals — for being completely yourself.
As always, with a Moon VoC, do your best to avoid starting anything brand-new — instead, stick to your routine or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday evening ahead of time.
Monday at 7:55pm EDT, the Moon moves into steady, peaceful Taurus, where it will journey until Thursday very early morning. We love all physical comforts, prefer consistency, and would rather stick with what we know works well.
In other words: change is not our favorite thing, and “rushing things” goes against our grain. What is our favorite thing for the next two days? It’s probably slowing down and getting in touch with whatever delights our senses.
