Our own inner wisdom and practicality make us acutely aware of matters hidden, ignored, denied, or that enrage, and yet we also know that to dig up the past or what’s already been will prevent not just healing, it will distance us from our own values, making personal navigation exceptionally difficult. We don’t feel good turning away from what needs to come to light, and we know that empowerment comes directly from dealing with reality, with ‘what is’ in its most concrete terms–but being too aggressive, even in pursuit of reform, will have the unfortunate effect of making us just ‘one of the mob’, even if we’re just a mob of one. All that makes us unique, original, special in our own way is temporarily erased when we indulge our sense of righteous anger. A little humility, along with the strength to question whether we actually do know better, will go a long way toward helping us form an accurate picture of who and where we are, and so help us know what we can do and be most effectively (Pallas trine Black Moon Lilith, Chiron sq Vesta, Saturn nov Juno, Mars qnx Uranus, Merc sesq SN, sq Ceres, then enters Leo)

Today’s word image is a man holding two leashes, and no dogs. Are we getting ahead of ourselves, somehow, ambitious to equip ourselves for what hasn’t yet occurred? There’s being prepared, and then there’s doing something so far ahead of developments that it becomes nonsensical. Make sure you’re not trying to rush something that, one way or another, needs more time.

Vincent van Gogh – ‘Starry Night Over the Rhone’ 1887 {{PD}}

Today we are challenged, one way or another, to assess our desires: how healthy are they? how empowering? how close to our ideals? how wise? We may inherently reject the need for change, or those inevitable developments we can do nothing about–but, we would be wise to embrace, if not the actual change, then the need for it, along with that need to look again at what and where we are. Change that follows guidelines of values and honors what we truly care about is vital to our well-being; so is being willing to commit resources to promoting health and nurturing autonomy. Thoughts are confusing, and what’s wise isn’t necessarily clear (though it certainly feels like it should be!) Be willing to question yourself, your aims, and to re-evaluate them in terms of what matters–this is the only approach that will truly work (Uranus sxt Vesta, Venus sxt Hygeia, sq Juno, and contra-parallel Pluto, Merc sesq Neptune, Sun sesq Pallas)

Today’s word image is a paper cup of water. Water is Life, the material of baptism, something we can’t live without but will die from if we become immersed in for long. This symbol may be a signal to appreciate the basics, the very elements that make up our world, and to respect them, and the way they support our more complex Being, making possible a life beyond mere survival. This might also be an invitation to ‘contain emotion’ in some way that allows us to ‘take it in’, to use it and make it part of ourselves, to make it a supportive component, rather than being overcome by it.

Moon in Libra, then Scorpio (a Water sign, at 8:52 PM PDT), applies to our Water imagery; if you’re so inclined, you can support clean water for all here, or here (both check out through Charity Navigator)

The good news is thoughts, ideas, and communications are healing–don’t keep kindness to yourself, as sharing will actually be a salve to others–instincts can guide where and when to apply–and the matters of the Houses of the natal chart ruled by Mercury can be ‘put right’ at this time, with sudden ideas or an unexpected ‘coming together’ of info adding illumination, though radical or abrupt changes to what already is won’t be supported, and neither will messages centered on change or rebellion–we just won’t hear those and be moved, as we might otherwise be. So, energy expression should go toward making the world a better place, especially intellectually or conceptually, with a generous helping of Love for ourselves the foundation (Venus enters Leo, after spending the day in a ‘crisis of caring’ at 29 degrees Cancer).

Now the more difficult circumstances: an underlying discord between opposing or complementary entities (male-female, positive-negative, yin-yang) prevents smooth coordination or any chance of working together for very long. We may be perceiving the reality picture as a rough one, and could use the unity, use the help–but past frictions are making true cooperation impossible at this moment. Give it some time–each person has to work through that sticking point, likely a mental one, that’s inhibiting real teamwork–and accept that we have our own impediments to cooperation, too–it’s not just the other guy. Now is not the time to push for big change; we’d do best to get our own thoughts into some kind of objective, and very patient, order (Venus contra-parallel Mars and sesq SN, Mercury sq Uranus, trine Chiron, sesq Saturn, and sxt Sedna)

Today’s word image is an open purse. This is figurative, of course; ‘currency’ comes in many forms. ‘Generosity’ is a keyword; so is consciousness of (rather than judgment of) worth. Share in appreciation, not out of obligation; the positive effects of paying attention to and ‘promoting’ what we find of worth (no matter what form it takes) are amplified at this time. It’s a situation of ‘what we send out we get back’, very quickly, at this point in time. Experiment (says my Aquarius Ascendant!) and you’ll see this almost instantly at work.

Many thanks to those who’ve been so generous with me–your spirit inspired the daily image! And everyone, have a great start to your week!

‘Paysage au Pouldu’ Paul Gauguin 1889 {{PD}}

Saturday: We may find it difficult both to utilize creative energies in profitable or productive ways and to express the wisdom we know we have within; and this is in spite of the optimism we are feeling and the plentiful opportunities we see all around us. Relationships and/ or finances may be subject to misunderstandings or outright deceptions, and what we want, as well as our interactions, suffer under the burden of unreal ideals to which we flawed humans may find it impossible to adhere. Our expectations don’t jibe with reality, and how quickly we are able to set aside what we anticipated and instead deal with what is will determine how well things go for us. The healthy way is optimism, and an openness that allows us to share our burdens and delights with others, and they with us. A commitment to reality and a sense of being ‘in this together’ will make for effective and positive outcomes (Hygeia enters Libra, Venus sesq Neptune, Mercury sesq Pallas, Sun sxt Jupiter)

Saturday’s word image is a vacuum that spews out, rather than sucks in! What mechanism or device used in our thinking or our behavior is not just ineffective, it is bringing about the opposite outcome to what we actually want? Admit you are the source of at least a fraction of your troubles, rid yourself of this Self-perpetuated obstacle, and notice how certain difficulties just fall away.

Sunday: Our values or relationships themselves challenge our priorities, and the scenario presented is, ‘Choose: you can have what you care about, or me/ what I care about’; this is a false dichotomy likely presented by someone who either holds and wants to retain power over you, or who wants your power for their own. Emotionalism can make it easy to act in accord with the demand, just to remove the pressure, but doing so would put you at a distinct disadvantage, and shrink your options and choices to almost nil–so trust your values and priorities, instead, and what you know to be right (Mars qnx Vesta, Venus sq Ceres, Merc trine Mars)

Sunday’s word image is a blue-green color filled with undulating light, as if you’re observing the world from under water. Consider the emotional filters we all use, and make note of the ones that allow us to observe without becoming overly involved, or heavily judgmental, but that help us maintain a cool equilibrium. You’ll need this mild distancing at some point today, if only to keep you from blowin’ it up.

‘Rue de Paris, temps de pluie’ Gustave Caillebotte 1876 {{PD}}

Interactions today are based on instincts, with the goal, conscious or not, of the need to wound or heal others or ourselves (contradictory and varied intents are to be expected), and we follow our internal prompts in spite of difficulties thrown in our way by circumstances, ‘the rules’, or authority figures. Those in power are bent on pointing out to us what’s wrong with what we want or aspire to, but we are thinking big, and can use mental faculties to tap into faith or opportunity (which is dictated by where your idols lie) and use it as propulsion forward. One warning: be very clear in the differences among thought, feeling, instinct, and desire–it’s easy to confuse them, especially when we want something so much we justify it as instinctual, rather than a choice–instincts, and opportunities shown us by the mind, are what we should be following today (Venus sxt Sedna, sesq Saturn, and trine Chiron, Mercury sxt Jupiter, Sun sq Zeus)

Today’s word image is an outdoor concert in the rain. Are you the kind of person who would see this as an adventure, an inconvenience, or an insult, feeling the concert would be ruined? Can you enjoy something as much when it doesn’t go as planned as you do when it does? Do you take such developments personally, or do you see them as just part of living? We may do well to widen our parameters for accepting and enjoying the unexpected; in our symbol, we see a chance to appreciate two sensations, two senses, at once.

Relationships or finances could offer nasty surprises, the unexpected could cost us, and what we care about or our values could be challenged by modern advances or a ‘forward thinking’ stance we’re not ready for, while innovations could, at least initially, spark conflict or take an undue toll. What arises may blindside us, not least because we may have been living too much in our own heads, listening to a tape loop that reinforces what we already think; we missed some shouted warnings, threats, and/ or outright promises concerning change, specifically the way our ambitions and goals need to be modified for continued viability. There is also the matter of those in authority (or those who think they hold it) becoming secretive or ‘going negative’ in some way, in an attempt to hold on to power. If we can get outside our own heads and get some perspective, we’ll do fine–doing that means all those things that arrive as shocks or surprises to others don’t surprise us at all. Those able to be most objective and least Self-involved win (Sun-Merc opp Pluto and sq Zeus, Venus sq Uranus, Juno enters Scorpio)

Shoes are quite literally a form of foundation; the characteristics of the shoe you imagine should tell you a little something about the current state of your psychic, social, and spiritual foundation, with a willingness to interpret the information symbolically opening the way to effective ‘repairs’.

Hillary and the FBI + AstroNotes for 6 July 2016

Edgar Germain Hilaire Degas 1874 {{PD}}

Edgar Germain Hilaire Degas 1874 {{PD}}

FBI Announcement of No Charges Against Hillary + Juno!

Just a few astro-points: at the time of the announcement of the FBI recommendation of no charges, the Moon was Void-of-Course at 29 degrees of Cancer–and also moving to square her natal Juno at 29+ Libra (this does not negate the Void, as only planets and lights are classically considered to determine Voids). We’re seeing the worst (the square) about this Juno figure (Clinton, with Juno suggesting power, status, and, yes, an identity as the ‘wronged wife’) and what we learn is not going to amount to anything (the Void). As an aside, she also has Black Moon Lilith at 29 Capricorn natally, suggesting life long tension surrounding secrets or matters ignored or denied, and perhaps a perpetual state of feeling angry and wronged, particularly in regard to ‘the rules’–and considering this is opposed her natal Vesta in Cancer, any time she stands up for her priorities or looks to further her highest values (she has done significant work promoting accessible health care for children), difficult forces come out of the woodwork to oppose her–or so it seems to her.

In glancing at her chart and today’s transits, we note Chiron and Mars fill in a Water Grand Trine with her natal Vesta=actions and choices easily either hurt or heal the values and to what she dedicates her energies–so people may either forgive the choices or permanently condemn her for them, but in any case, it’s a conclusion largely driven by emotion (Water); the Earth quincunxes her natal Pluto-Mars in 10th of career and public image (and if we consider the transiting South Node, we make her Mars-Pluto apex to a Finger of God)=we are offered the deep down dirt, the material results of both behavior and investigation laid bare, and there’s an implication that we must adjust our ideas to fit the reality–the result is a purge, a deconstruction of actions and choices; we also see the Moon at the time of announcement within orb of trine to her natal Jupiter, ruler of her Whole Sign 2nd=no matter what you think of Ms. Clinton, the details offered by FBI Director Comey speak of her Self-worth, Self-image, personal assets, talents, general way of seeing herself within the larger context of the world (all 2nd House)–so see her, and judge her, as you will.

P.S. Somehow I left out the most obvious part: t Juno will by the 26th conjoin Hillary’s Sun, and is already within orb in its current position. Is it any surprise she’s prevailing at this point?

Here’s something I wrote on the Clintons in the past.

And speaking of Juno, the Juno probe has arrived and begun its orbit of Jupiter: here are details on the mission itself. And Jude Cowell gives us some insight.

Symbolically speaking we’re seeing the uniting of a couple, two gods ‘marrying’, intending at least for a time to communicate and ‘live together’. Despite all the clashes that followed their return to Olympus, Juno and Jupiter were initially very happy together, enjoying a 300 year honeymoon corresponding to the time they stayed away from their home turf and the other gods. This is an interesting thing to consider: how good is a relationship, really, if it only thrives in a rarefied, isolated environment?

Notes on the 6th of July 2016

We can enjoy some extraordinary luck today, unusual, even magical experiences, ‘breaks’, and serendipities, as long as we are flexible and open to changes in the blink of an eye, able to go with sudden developments and innovations. Surprises may arise from past choices, and cooperation may hit a high point, with male-female relations exceptionally smooth–each play their hand and the other likes it–also look for the ways you can take advantage of easy alignment of matters in the Houses ruled by Venus and Mars. For instance, if you have Aries on the 3rd, Taurus on the 4th, and Libra on the 9th it might be the perfect day to schedule a test or home inspection, to sign a contract for work on the home or involving real estate, to re-enroll in school or a home-study course, or it could be a good time to make plans to travel to see family at a distance.

The Sun and Mercury meet in Superior (direct motion for Mercury) Conjunction, bringing a minor cycle seeded at the Inferior Conjunction (around 10 May) to a conclusion. Whatever may have begun at that time reaches its apex–and ends, wraps up, or proves untenable, making it clear we should move on (Uranus nov SN, Venus trine Mars, Sun conj Merc)

Duckling by Bruno Liljefors 1903 {{PD}}

Today’s word image is a duckling alone on a pond. We may be experiencing a sense of loneliness, of abandonment, or of vulnerability, as if in some important area or way we are too ‘young’ to handle our present environment. Realize everything holds risk, but to focus on that is crippling; instead work at stretching your wings, and staying alert.

A Sunday on La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat, 1884 {{PD}}

Our thoughts are idealized, and our attention is on the ‘bright spots’ of the past–and if we lived in a vacuum, that would suit these inclinations splendidly. We are thinking a great deal about what perfection looks like, or would be. As it is, though, we may find that either Love or Money matters (whichever is your particular poison) tempts us to go against what we know to be wise, or to venture into territory calling for (or possibly promising to others) skills we don’t possess. The remedies: take note of creative ideas; the inspiration is genuine, though it’s important to accept that we might not be in a place at present to act on those ideas, not least because our idealized version of things will present a number of problems. Don’t do anything you know to be unwise–this needs to be stated only because the obviousness of the sentiment might make us think it’s something to transcend. And when you’re in over your head, acknowledge it and ask for help–it’s the smart thing to do (Venus sesq Pallas, Mercury trine Neptune, Sun trine SN)

Today’s word image is Disneyland. Yes, the ‘Magic Kingdom’, mother of all theme parks. How do you feel about the place? Almost everyone has a reaction, whether they’ve ever been there or not. Are you enchanted with the re-imagining of Archetypal figures, angered by the pernicious stereotyping, worn out at the thought of trudging through an artificial world with the family? Do you see it as too tame, or a shame, promoting a worldview that’s so supremely Western and so terribly white? Do you look forward to the chance to enjoy what you enjoyed as a child, and do you identify with any of the characters to be found in Disney products? Your reaction to the idea of Disneyland itself likely corresponds to the way you’re approaching the world, assumptions, judgments, and all. Allow your response to reveal something useful, in terms of real life, and your attitude toward it.

New Moon in Cancer 4 July 2016 A Mystic Dynamic

Featured

Giovanni Boldini 1906 {{PD}}

Giovanni Boldini 1906 {{PD}}

The New Moon in Cancer occurs at 4:01 AM PDT of the 4th at 12 degrees 53 minutes, and the most striking feature of the event is that it forms a loose Mystic Rectangle involving the Sun-Moon/ Earth axis, which includes Mercury conjoined the Sun-Moon and Pluto conjoined the Earth, and the Nodal axis which also has Neptune conjoined the South Node and Jupiter conjoined the North, though with our normally tight (2 degrees or less) New Moon orbs, not all of those bodies and points would be considered in aspect to some of the others. A configuration is able to pull in things that might not otherwise be considered in contact by its sheer power of connection (that is, the power of each part is amplified by being part of a configuration; it’s as if being part of a pattern extends the orb of each body–or maybe we should think of it as the pattern pulling energies into play by proximity to one of the config’s elements). With the Mystic Rectangle formed by this New Moon, a kind of synergy is added to what begins or is seeded: whatever’s born arises from the convergence of a number of factors involving what we care about (Cancer) vs. what exists right now (Capricorn).

The ease with which these various combinations meld and then amplify is what the Mystic Rectangle is all about. There’s Neptune-South Node in Pisces=we either create from the past or use something imagined or created in the past, or we find that past imaginings were illusions, fantasies, or deceptions; Pluto-Earth=material changes, or changes to what we count on or find familiar, to the structure of our lives via both the concrete and rules, boundaries, restrictions, or a transformation or destruction of the ‘real world’ landscape; North Node-Jupiter=opportunities for the future, optimism about the future, or something learned or conveyed (facts) that shape the future; Moon-Sun-Mercury=what we care about we think about, and it acts upon and is acted upon by the other parts of the configuration. The overall picture is one of creative response to change that teaches us something, or from which we learn, and this creates future opportunities, even creates the future itself. Be aware: the tendency may be to live too much in our heads, to see an idea coalesce and then believe we ‘have done’ merely by the thinking. This is a NM that offers a great deal of mental ‘fodder’, but that will support material new starts, even more completely and thoroughly than we might think.

We should note the wide, separating quincunx of the New Moon to Saturn=this may lend an aura of ‘too late’ or unreality to our ideas and efforts–but this is an illusion (Saturn sq Neptune). The Sun is also parallel Venus today, suggesting there’s gain to be had in simply being conscious–and that’s good news. The NM is also in wide square to Zeus, and with Pluto-Earth, forms a tense T-square=the ambition and desire picture may make or break the material changes we allow to come forward–and that means this could be the pivotal issue that decides what precisely in our world changes, as we measure all potential alterations against how well they serve the ambition and desire picture.

The Sabian for the New Moon is, ‘A Hand With A Prominent Thumb Is Held Out For Study’. In palmistry the thumb seems to indicate flexibility and Willfulness of the individual; in a cultural context, we might say it suggests a certain disrespect of others (thumbing one’s nose at something) or a signal that one wants to be ‘taken along for the ride’ (hitchhiking). But the thing that might be most important about the thumb is that it is our ‘opposable digit’–that is, the placement of the thumb in relation to the other fingers offers us as a species an enormous advantage, and is said to be the reason we dominate the earth.

So what does this mean for the NM? The fact that the thumb is mentioned as prominent implies that what begins at this point may be more a matter of Will and skill, combined, than of anything else. Too, the hand is being ‘held out for study’, which echoes involvement of the Nodal axis in the Mystic Rectangle, and may signal the importance, the future-determining ‘stuff’, that the New Moon events will bring. No matter what, it does point to the Self-determining nature of the events and our reactions to them; whether we are Willful or flexible, disdainful, or just going with the flow, we have to admit that it’s our choice, with how we fare resting firmly in our ability to exploit our most unique capabilities and skills.

Our New Moon daily word image is a man standing on a beach, being circled by a large dragonfly. I observed this, and haven’t been able to light on a definitive meaning, though it’s ripe for a few jokes (he’s the ‘Mother of Dragonflies’, for instance!) I finally decided that what it really ‘says’ is something about our interconnectedness with Nature, that we are far more part of the picture at a fundamental level than we consciously realize, just one element in an elemental world. Notice your own interaction with Nature today, especially in any ways you might hold yourself apart, recoil from contact or reality, or see yourself as ‘above’ other life forms; if you have these kinds of reactions or thoughts, they will point directly to areas where you are lacking realistic awareness of the natural order (which is, in essence, a place where the playing field is absolutely level), or where you have somehow removed yourself from it.

I wish someone would yell at me when I forget a Moon event chart–finally, here it is!

Your Weekend 2-3 July 2016 An Instinctual Picnic

'A Picnic at Portofino' George Spencer Watson 1910 {{PD}}

‘A Picnic at Portofino’ George Spencer Watson 1910 {{PD}}

Saturday our thoughts and communications have something beautifully instinctual about them; be sure to really listen to yourself and to others, as the unconscious perceptual nature makes itself and its wisdom known, and that means there are no stumbles if we’ll simply pause to hear what’s really going on (and which way we should go–the instincts are dead on with that!) Even with the potential for scenarios requiring adjustment (either to the material situation and/ or to what we think we know), we find that the instincts will serve us if we’ll just give them some attention (Mercury nov Sedna and trine Pallas, the Sun semi-sq Sedna and qnx Saturn)

Sunday presents a radically mixed (and so confusing) bag: on the one hand we may find that things we’ve said and done in the past may hamper us now, and the reality picture seems to not only contradict our highest values and priorities, but to actually impede us in exercising our status (that’s a wide net that generally covers circumstances where we would normally be empowered to act but for some reason can’t). Add to this the potential to be mislead, even mightily deceived, and we could feel there’s nothing we can count on. Contrast this with the way creativity and opportunity are spread out before us like a picnic; we are offered rare, nearly guaranteed circumstances for future success, and if we can keep our heads screwed on straight, and find creative venues that suit our specific, unique sensibilities, we can give that dream, the really big one, a reasonable chance for manifestation (Juno sesq SN, Saturn contra-parallel Vesta, Jupiter parallel NN, Mercury sesq Mars, Sun trine Neptune)

This weekend’s word image is something my husband observed this morning and shared with me in an email: “I stood behind a woman at the bus stop this morning who had a Scorpio tattoo on her toe and then, when the bus I was on was driving through downtown, it stopped next to a car whose license plate said WTRSIGN.” We may be dealing with action and choice dictated both by the need for conscious change (Mars in Scorpio) and those matters ignored, denied, or that enrage that may be driving us from the unconscious (Black Moon Lilith, also in Scorpio), and individually we may look for this effect in matters of the natal Houses that hold Water signs. Expect strong emotional reactions to be the initial signal, pushed by a psychic ‘wave’, that mental or physical change is underway–then watch which direction following those emotions may take you.

Have a wonderful, safe, and restful weekend, and to all in the U.S., Happy Independence Day!
