July 2017

July has all the subtlety of contractions pushing new life down a birth canal — and the being that emerges grabbing center stage.

“Oh, goodie,” you say. Remind yourself that there is a relief that comes from building pressure finally pushing out. Bemoaning the pressure will not make it lessen, stop or go away. Breathe. Make allowances to ride this out. (First on list: taking care of basic physical needs like rest and nutrition.) And breathe some more.

A cosmic timer is going off as Mars, planet of push and ruler of drive, motivation and the masculine, moves through a sequence of harsh, challenging encounters through the 20th, pounding on areas of life that have been in upheaval and fundamental restructuring since 2012.

2015 Gemini New Moon

June 16, 2015
25 Gemini 7
7:05 AM PDT / 10:05 EDT / 2:05 GMT

The Gemini New Moon moves our mental faculties into a new gear. The fog of the past few weeks is not so much lifting as becoming more manageable. Confusion and snafus may still be part of the picture — the planet of illusion is still having its way — but thinking feels clearer and more resolved. What’s more, all eyes are on the future — and there’s no turning back.

Part of the comfort comes from the ruler of the Gemini New Moon, Mercury, being in his home sign. He’s traveling, for the time being, in a demanding aspect to Neptune that is tied to illusion — uncovering it, whipping it up and, in some instances, dispelling it. This formula can short-circuit rational thinking. Resorting to, and relying on, faith, hunches and guidance is the way to go.

Staying in confusion is not the point, though. Thoughts, messages and travels all have a “forward, ho!” vibe to them. All are sending definite feelers into the future, thanks to Mercury making an easy link to the North Node of destiny. That Node represents the direction into which we are heading, individually and collectively. Because the North Node is in Libra, the new direction affects our social contracts and notions of equality, in addition to our personal relationship definitions.

The turmoil of the first part of the year may still be around us, but we’re no longer so embroiled in it. We’re contemplating where we’re heading, instead of fixating on where we’ve been.

Excitement’s building for new horizons, too. Our hearts and relationships are on board, with love and money goddess Venus cooperating with both Mercury and the North Node. (Offers and paths that open up now are the way of the future consider any carefully.)

Our engines are revving, too. Jupiter is fueling the catalyzing, self-actualizing properties of Uranus. Their link will be exact on June 22, setting into combustion an energy that sparked late last September and early this past March. We couldn’t quite move ahead then. Now it’s time to strap on our jet packs (or climb into a human cannon) and fly out of the rubble on to the new platform. Our minds explore it first. Watch how your perspective changes, as if pages have been ripped our, or a map crumpled up and a new course charted.
