Next month I will write them on individual post entries so this won't be a problem again. LOVE.
Okay this is SO long, because A LOT is going on, so I will break it down for you... the first part will be all about the Solar Eclipse and what the energies will be bringing to the table on 07/01/11 and then below that you will be able to read about the July 2011 Monthly Horoscopes for Each Sign. Okay you enjoy this please and feel free to print it up because otherwise you may be sitting here reading for hours!
What a month this is going to be! From the get go we start the month with the sha-bang of a solar eclipse which will also happen to be doing a dance with Pluto, Saturn,Uranus and the Black Moon forming together a Cardinal Grand Cross. Now this planetary alignment is with the slow moving planets so the configuration actually began and has been peculating right along since the last week in June. And the common feeling that these planets are bringing out of us is one of frustration at the slow movement of the growth we want to see happening in our lives. If you feel held back yet needing change, or vacillating between hope and hopelessness, or angst from wanting to move forward yet coming upon closed doors and confusion as to which fork in the road to take, well, then welcome to the energies of the moment!
Now you will probably hear more negative things being said about a Grand Cross, and even the words to describe the configuration could give you that feeling:oppositions and squares. A Grand Cross is when planets are in an opposing each other position, so like during a full moon when they are in the opposite planet and degree, and a square when they are in a 90 degree angle from each other. Now both of these angles, squares and oppositions, just involve us making changes to our game plan. For instance, I like to think of a square as if someone is behind you talking and you have to turn around to hear them to engage in a conversation. It will not kill you, but it is an adjustment on your part. An opposition is when 2 people are coming from different angles and opposing views but ultimately their goal is to come to the middle ground and and balance each others point of view. Once again, it will not kill you, but it is an adjustment that needs to be made. And one of the blessings from these aspects that require us to rethink and make adjustments is that there is a force behind them that is like the strength of an arm pulling back a rubber band and a rock; that force WILL send that rock outward. These aspects carry great forces of destiny and absolute movement. And I'll tell you what, every personal chart reading I have ever done of someone who had T-squares and Grand Crosses is here to do a very big thing this time around. And they just need to hear that there is a reason behind that force and to never look at it as a bad or troubling thing. I think of it as that high vibrational thing: you can tell someone this will give them great difficulty and it inevitably will, or you can tell them the truth, that this is a powerful aspect reinforcing that they put their emphasis in this particular area and never give up on themselves and they will eventually be in a position of power which is their destiny. I have the same T-Square in my chart that Oprah has which is between Mercury, Mars and Pluto. This loosely translates into the force to be communicating in a grand far reaching way that affects mass loads of people and has a transformative quality about it. So using her as an example, would you say that that is a troubling issue for her or would you say that that was a blessing of a gift which brought with it a force that made SURE that she put her efforts in that direction in order to live out her destiny? So understand that this powerful aspect of a Grand Cross is just giving us the uuummpphhh to make change happen in our lives and to make sure that we don't just give it a half ass effort, but instead to put our all and total focus into it. Think of a revolving door and when you are waiting for that opening and when it comes you walk in and it inevitably takes you to the next opening. You don't have to do a lot but you do have to participate with the flow and you have to jump when the opportunity comes your way.
So lets break this down: a new moon solar eclipse is when the Sun and Moon are in the same degree and what makes it an eclipse is when it is at its closest position to the Nodes. We only have a hand full of eclipses each year since the Nodes change every 18 months. So for example the North Node is in Sagittarius right now, with the South Node in Gemini. AND the Nodes move backward so next year we will have the North Node in Scorpio and the South Node in Taurus and when the Sun and Moon reach those points we will have eclipses again. This eclipse is at 10 degrees Cancer and it is a New Moon so both the Sun and the Moon are sitting in that spot on July 1, 2011 in the wee hours of the morning, here mountain time it will occur at 2:54 am. Now what really makes this eclipse so important and exciting is that it will be creating a Cardinal Grand Cross with Pluto, Uranus, Saturn and the Black Moon.
Pluto is all about transformation, the rebirth that comes out of death and destruction, and a force that only does things in the hugest and most dramatic way because he has to create the death that brings about the transformation from the rebirth. Pluto destroys but Pluto is only doing it to bring about a transformation. Pluto would be like a tornado and when in the sign of Capricorn, which is all about authority figures and corporations, we can better understand what is going on in the our world which feels like a total collapse. Understand that it is only a total collapse of all that does not operate out of right action. Pluto may demolish something he but only does it to bring about a better way. Think about how much community and caring for one another comes about after a disaster like tornadoes and flooding and fires. These events are so devastating and rip us to the core but with each one we open our hearts further to our fellow brothers and sisters. The day before we may walk by someone and not even notice them, but after a tornado or earthquake, we always connect more to our fellow humans. These devastations open our hearts and make us more compassionate and also more honoring and aware of our short precious visit on Earth.
Saturn is a cautious fellow but he just wants us to learn it right in order to do it right. He might hold you back in school and make you learn the lesson over and over but ultimately it is only because he so believes in right action as the only action. Saturn is traveling through Libra right now so the internal balancing act and coming to that middle fair ground is his focus. He will take us to both extremes on the teeter totter but when all is said and done it is the middle ground that he wants us to operate from. Saturn wants us to know it all, the good and the bad, the high and the low, but through his own sense of timing and maturity he desires us to find and walk that middle ground. Now Capricorn is ruled by Saturn so we have a double dipping of Capricorn since Saturn is in this dance too. So a big theme in the world and in our lives is right action coming to all the structures that have been set in place from times past, when integrity may have not been the ultimate desire. Integrity and honor is the ultimate desire in the world that is forming before our eyes now and all the things unjust and devaluing of the Earth and all its inhabitants will be collapsing and coming to the forefront of our awareness. And the force is in alignment with this desire so you can expect a lot of secrets and unimaginables coming to awareness at this time, but ultimately know, it is only coming out in order for changes to be made and to start doing it in a more earth honoring way.
Uranus (yer-ah-nus) is all about shaking things up and grabbing our attention in a sometimes perverse, out of control way. Uranus is a kin to lightning. Uranus is all about people who are different and ahead of the times and who grab your attention through their desire to not be like all the rest and to not follow the ways of the past just because we are told we are suppose to. Uranus was all those kids back in the 80's who loved Black Flag and Ministry. Uranus loves that to be alternative has become the mainstream because that is a sign that people are waking up in mass numbers and do have the balls to do it different and to stand out as unique. Uranus loves that people are making a stand for what is right, and signing petitions, demanding they be counted and coming together to say OH HELL NO! Uranus is all about brotherhood and sisterhood. Uranus is the fuel and the inspiration behind aquarius nation.
The Black Moon is also know as Lilith, the woman who was supposedly created at the same time as Adam, but she was a strong willed, powerful, ain't gonna take no shit from no body sort of gal and she refused to only have sex missionary style as she wanted to be on top, so she walked away from her position with Adam, and then Eve was created to take over that role of "perfect" woman. Uranus actually LOVES Lilith and thinks she is the coolest woman alive and he would never want no passive follow what a man says without using your own judgement sort of gal. Lilith can think for herself and will absolutely stand up and say no if she feels it is the wrong thing to do. She has the depth of the underworld built within her. She is the shaman of the world and has all the wisdom built within. She knows she has all the answers and even if she is shun for her views and denounced for her choices she still follows thru with her head held high and with absolute integrity intact. She is the one who would rather have one friend who has her back then 10 that she can not trust. She would rather be alone, then spend her time with anyone who does not value and honor what she has to bring. When you find a man who has a strong Black Moon in his chart, you find a man who all women naturally gravitate towards. This will be a man who is very in touch with his powerful feminine core and all strong women these days are really looking for that in a man.
So now the dance goes something like this:
Uranus and Lilith are working together side by side in a conjunction so they are empowering the scene through their visions of forward motion and walking with integrity and honor for all. They are opposing (coming to a balanced understanding of both sides) Saturn who is telling them to go slow to make sure you do it right. They are squaring (turning around to get a better perspective) Pluto who is saying, sorry but I may have to blow some stuff up and create disasters in order to really wake you up and create the change needed. And they are squaring The Sun and Moon which is making these energies felt by all of us collectively. Pluto is opposing that Sun and Moon so this deep transformative process we are in is hitting us all to the core, which is why we have been feeling this frustration for much needed change.
We are at an enormous shift in the world right now and this aspect which then will turn into a T-square between all the slow moving planets which I listed above will be describing our next 6 months of living. At the time of the New Moon Eclipse Jupiter will be trining Pluto and adding some faith and protection in the future regarding all the disasters going on around our world at this time. I am living in Santa Fe, NM at this present time and we are now facing a huge disaster with a wild fire that is heading towards the Los Alamos Nuclear Plant which is the place that created the first atomic bomb that America dropped on Hiroshima as a test to see what the results would be to human life. You can check out the movie Atomic Burns which is on my website and it is the truth of Hiroshima and the results that were kept buried until recently, but they were kept buried in order for the US to get the go ahead on Nuclear energy as a safe thing. But it is not at all a safe thing and if the fires get to the Plutonium we will all be in danger of our health and our lives. I do feel that the fire will be kept from this Nuclear plant but I believe it is happening for the world to hear and for the world to stand up and against any more nuclear activity. And even the fact that there are 4 nuclear plants in danger in the U.S. right now is like a call to arms and a message that Mother Earth is pointing out what needs to be transformed. And this is absolutely in direct relation to this T-Square of our times now. These planets are coming to us to push us out of our comfort zones but only because our comfort zones were make believe and not really living in reality. We haven't known the REAL truth until recently and now that we know, everything has to change.
All that is happening in the World right now is in complete order and is an example of more to come but one thing that we all need to keep present in our minds, every moment, is that a Cardinal Grand Cross is energy that will MAKE things happen, but it is also driven by our motivations. So like the energy is coming but our faith and our belief in an outcome will drive the force. It is the same as motivating yourself to believe you WILL get some job or you WILL pass this test or you WILL overcome some sickness. It is imperative that we all motivate ourselves and others to believe of the best outcome and to direct this energy into a positive learning experience and not a devastating learning experience. We are truly the designers of these Earth changes at this time and this planetary alignment is basically just actualizing the concept of "instant manifestation". The planets are working with us to bring about the much needed dramatic changes and now each one of our minds is at the poll voting for how we want this to go down. How do you vote?
As a note before I begin your monthly horoscopes, this New Moon on the 1st is when you want to write your wishes or affirmations for how you want your life and the world to unfold and what you want to create. This one is uber important given the circumstances of the moment in time, and every one of you needs to be voting through your intentions. Now there is this thing called Void of Course, which I can not even get into here right now, but it basically is a time when movement should not be applied. It is like when you force something but it was not the right time so then you have to go back and re do it anyway. Or, it is like water is not running during the moon is VOC so you wouldn't want to shampoo up your head or do the dishes when the water is not running. You would wait for the water to come on again and this is what it will do once you pass the VOC time.
So the very best times for you to write your wishes or affirmations is on:
July 1st 1:54 am to 4:38 am
July 2nd 2:44 pm to 9:27pm
July 4th 6:16 pm to July 5th 5:20 pm
(all times give are Pacific Time)
Okay then! Lets get into the monthly horoscopes for July of 2011! And don't forget that you want to read about your Sun Sign, your Rising Sign and if you want more info you can also read your Moon Sign.
ARIES March 21 - April 19
It probably feels like every single aspect of your life is in total transformation and change and you are absolutely right. Being that you are right in the thick of this Cardinal Grand Cross and that Uranus and the Black Moon are also sharing your Sun sign, well I would say oh heck yeah it is all up in the air. But change is good and at least you have those 2 planets which are pretty exciting and avante garde kind of planets to be sharing your space. But just don't count on anything staying as it is right now. Pretend you are on a water float going down the river and some times there will be big rushing waves and you will have to hold on tight, and at other times there will be smooth tranquil waters, floating you along as if singing you a lullaby, and sometimes you will get stuck in rocks and have to jump into the water and push your floater through, and sometimes a gush of water will come and will throw you off balance into the water and you'll have to swim to get back onto your floater. A wild ride? I'll say. But who better equipped to handle these currents of the moment then You. You will be just fine once you catch on to the fact that it is all fluid and ever changing and completely uncharted territory.
