Hello my dear friends,
I am writing today because I see a lot
of folks suffering a bit with issues they
thought were wrapped up last December. Many
of us had a large issue we grappled with
for two and a half years or so (the length
of time Saturn stays in one sign) and we
thought it was over - all taken care of.
We have been focused on healing and moving
forward, only to have Saturn retrograde
into Scorpio again and for many of us, that
same old nonsense and fear is rearing up
again. Not exactly the same, but the same
people or feelings or circumstances or what
not - noticeably similar at any rate and
that can give us a hopeless "things
will never change" sort of feeling.
Don't buy into that feeling - it is not
true.We know it's not true. We moved on
- we were getting over it.
The issues of the last 2 years or so have
been big issues, with many details and nuances.
So much to learn. This is your review. How
will you handle it this time? Have you healed
enough to move on and not let it bother
you? Have you learned what NOT to do? Will
you do the same things and think the same
things you did last time? We have learned
a lot - A LOT - so please, let's just hold
onto our hats and use those healthy habits
we have been working on to do this bit better.
This time will be relatively short - we've
got that both going for us and against us.
Use the energy while you can. Now is the
time to make the changes needed to really
put the issue to bed.
This coming Saturday (July 25th) is a box
day, as Venus turnsretrograde in critical,
service oriented Virgo. If you have been
on acleaning binge this last week and wondered
why, it's because Venus onlyjust got to
Virgo and a clean house is comforting. Now
she will turnretrograde and that energy
will be turned inward. It is now time forus
to do some internal house cleaning and focus
on how we comfortourselves - to look within
and honor our own needs. Try not to soundlike
a disapproving mother in your mental dialog
and try to enjoyfocusing on living and eating
more healthfully. This energy will notlast
long either - she is heading back to the
party in Leo on the 31st,where she gives
off a more fun loving, from the heart vibe.
Listen towhat your loved ones are saying
and speak softly and kindly if you wantthem
to hear you.
Sunday we have Uranus turning retrograde
and directing it's energy for change, liberation
and freedom inward. Doesn't that sound like
an important match up? So many of us are
trying to improve our daily care and health
habits. I think there is real support in
this endeavor for the last week of the month.
Meditating under the Delta Aquarid meteor
showers on the 27th and the 28th might be
just the ticket.
Then Saturn turns Direct on August 1st
(the following Saturday). So now is when
that hairy issue of old gets turned around.
Here is where our energy for responsible
action shines outward and into the world
again. Here is where we start to move forward
with decisive action to truly put that issue
of old to rest. Venus retrograde in Leo
by this time has us coming from the heart
and comforting ourselves.
Then, badabing, badaboom - Circle day,
August 2nd, with Mercury (communication)
and Uranus (liberation) in harmonious trine
- time to talk change with a compassionate
& creative Pisces Moon. Next Jupiter
Venus conjunction on August 4th. Super lucky
Circle Day with an assertive Aries Moon,
while the Sun (self) and Moon (emotions)
are in harmonious trine. These are going
to be super good days, my friends. Great
things begin on these days - changes in
perspective, new love, new opportunity...and
someone will win the lottery on the 4th!
Saturn moves back into Sagittarius on September
17th - and we will all likely look forward
to that with every bit of anticipation we
had in late December when he did this the
last time. Saturn in Sagittarius will have
it's own themes and issues - you may have
gotten a taste of that earlier this year.
If you have something in early Sag, make
hay while the sun shines now and keep the
magnesium and chocolate handy. If you have
planets in the end of Scorpio, you have
my condolences and reassurances that this,
too, shall pass.Breathe in strength. Breathe
out the BS. It's almost over.
Sending lots and lots of love to you all.
