10/17 ~ Jupiter Direct in AQUARIUS:
Jupiter goes Retrograde annually, providing an opportunity to check-in with the Area of Life (House) where it is extending its stay. This year, it’s your Aquarius House, so freedom, detachment & community is all part of it. Jupiter helps us learn & understand things on a deeper level, and in Aquarius, we start to see how our unique contribution really matters. Each year, during the Retro, we get to “edit our personal Story” so that we can live our authentic Truth & Purpose, at a more embodied level going forward. We have from now until Dec 28th to finish up this once-in-12-years opportunity to goldmine the wisdom of Jupiter in Aquarius before our education shifts back to the Pisces Department and we get an incredible expansion there next.
10/17 ~ Jupiter Direct in AQUARIUS:
This season is so important, and taking advantage of every possible form of support and good energy, (planetary or otherwise) is vital to making a smooth transition to the next leg of this particular journey. This month’s expanded Virgo energy will feed you in a way that fuels your individual process, making you more effective in your preparation for the coming tangible results.
Virgo gives everyone a chance to “process, sort & sift” all that has come up in the last nine months. There is a line in the book, Little Soul & the Sun by Neale Donald Walsh, that says, “Now that I know WHO I AM, I want to BE it!” And I must suggest that in order for you to “BE” all that you discovered about your essential nature (in Leo) and what nourishes and supports you on the deepest levels (in Cancer), Virgo is the energy that extracts the BEST of YOU and helps you heal and/or release all that is no longer relevant or useful – within and around you.
This month is all about YOU!! Leo energy always makes me think of the song, “This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine …” If you did the Cancer work of clearing emotional debris (ineffective reactions, old habits, past events or people) from your life and anchored your inner sense of belonging, then you should be quite ready for Leo’s heart-centered radiance to shine through you. If you tend to be shy or hide your own light under a bushel, then it may signify a time for you to get out anyway to share, socialize and be seen!
This month is ALL ABOUT YOU … the NEW you!! Release all that is no longer “truth” for you – on every level. Begin the process of integrating these amazing new aspects you’ve recently discovered about your Self and HONOR who you have worked so hard to become!!
7/25 ~ Mercury (communication & self-expression) ~oppose~ Pluto (purification & transformation):
This opposition is between your ideas, thoughts & concepts and your unconscious drives, supporting some deep-digging into the power of your mind and thoughts. How has your thinking shaped your choices over the last 6-months? Are you still operating from an old paradigm of thought? Any opposition is a chance for true integration and we will always have to work at balancing our conscious and unconscious thinking as it affects our day-to-day choices. This could be a good time to consult with a trusted advisor or wise friend to clarify what is coming into your conscious awareness about your own self-sabotaging ideas or habits. This activation supports pulling it out by the root. Often, we address the symptoms rather than the true cause of our discomfort. Pluto won’t allow that. It’s time to go deeper and recognize your own power, the power of your heart and mind, and find that middle ground that allows you peace within and effectiveness without.
Cancer time brings us face-to-face with some major choices & decisions (Eclipses) which will likely require some form of Assimilation & Elimination. Cancer’s gift is Processing all that passes through your system, taking in the nutrient (that makes the system work) and any excess or toxins that cannot be “assimilated” must be “eliminated”. If you do not eliminate them, then blockages (and some form of dis-ease or discomfort) will occur. Quality nourishment (or what you take into your system) is vital and *if* you have held onto anything that has not been put to proper use, then you may be particularly toxic (within or without), and you will have to Cleanse and Heal FIRST, before your can rebuild or fortify your structure (Capricorn).
This month, the Cancer energy will activate you on the deepest Soul levels. This energy is best when you direct it to Feel & Digest what is going on in and around you … take in and assimilate all nutrients, while eliminating all toxins and excess.
6/27 ~ Venus Enters Leo (until July 21st):
Venus in Leo is all about renewing your values & priorities around *Cultivating Your Authentic Self & Unique Contribution*. The last time it was in Leo was Sept 2020 and just imagine how much your essential nature & values have evolved since then alone! This is an introduction to your newly Emergent Self! Review the last 9-months – what have you developed creatively? How has your heart expanded and your consciousness grown & evolved over that time? How have your values & priorities shifted regarding love, sex, fun, creativity & how you express who you really are? What is all that ‘worth’ to you (then & now)? What is the difference in how you expressed your Self in 2015 (last time she really re-set us in Leo), and how you want to express in new ways NOW (2021)? What have you learned about your Self? What have you learned about your immediate friends, family & community, and your place (and preferences) within each connection?
6/20 ~ Summer Solstice is the MidPoint in the Annual Solar Cycle, bringing another turn of the Wheel, the peak power of the *Light* before it surrenders, moving toward true completion of that which was seeded at Winter Solstice. Permanently opposite each other, eternally balancing and re-balancing … integrating and re-integrating the *Life-Death-Life Cycle*. These Sacred Seasons represent the time of year we should focus on the balance and integration of Light/Darkness ~ Yin/Yang ~ Feminine/Masculine ~ Inner/Outer ~ Cancer/Capricorn, which adds personal & professional as well as public & private.
