On July 25-26th we have a full moon in Aquarius (the group) opposing the Sun in Leo (the individual). Also, we are in the final face-off between serious Saturn (resistance) against expect the unexpected Uranus (change). Their first four oppositions started in October of 2008 electing President Obama on a platform of promised change. He still has time it is not over until the fat lady sings. The first four Saturn/Uranus oppositions were in mutable and adaptable Virgo and Pisces. They were to prepare us for action in the cardinal signs Libra and Aries. The cosmic message is that we must make real changes to our most pressing problems. We want to ride the wave of change for resistance is futile.
On the up side, the Leo sun and Aquarius full moon are both in harmonious aspects to the Saturn/Uranus opposition. Trines and sextiles (positive aspects) always show the astrologer the way out of the challenge for the client or the group. The way out of our troubles is through the power and talent of the individual (Leo) and our collaboration with the team (Aquarius). If we remain humble and see “the bigger picture” that we are all on this journey together. We can create solutions to the difficulties we must face and if we think out of the box. “You are really individual beings, with very special talents, and it would be nice if teachers had the time, or parents had the awareness or skill, to see the children as the very individual, very special beings that they are. So that rather than trying to drum them into one category, they are, instead, appreciating the special insight that each child brings to the sea of diversity and contrast which is the stuff that creation comes from.”— Abraham
What would happen if our leaders were more spiritually aware to the power and influence of astrology? Knowledge is power. If they were to employ astrology it would save us and them vast money, time and energy. All of which are in short supplies these days. The overwhelming and antagonistic energy of the planets, Jupiter (exaggeration) in Aries (let’s fight for I am right) is also squaring off with powerful Pluto (Divine will or egoic will, the Inner King, our Higher Self and the inner Sméagol, our little self who must have the precious.) in Capricorn (choices and consequences). Macho Mars (god of war) joins Saturn in Libra on the 29th and opposing Uranus and Jupiter in Aries. We have a tremendously commanding T-square with Saturn (fear) and Mars in Libra opposing Jupiter and Uranus in Aries all squaring intense Pluto in Capricorn (change or die). Superficial changes will not suffice. We have to make real changes wherever this T-square falls in our natal chart and connects to our natal planets. The summer heat is on and things may not lighten up until the fall. One concern I have is that this energy will give the bully on the playground momentum to attack the weak. We must stand up to the bullies of the world. Arrogance and meanness can be the downside of this astrological cycle for those without a strong spiritual foundation. On the upside, the true power is with the inspiring individual like Shirley Sherrod who demonstrated honor, integrity and great character. “When you see someone living something awful, a rocket of desire for their resolution shoots out of you. And then, if you start focusing upon their resolution, you’ll start feeling better right away. And now, you’re part of the current that is part of the solution.” — Abraham
The Sun is in Leo until August 23 we have the opportunity to be heroic too and take a stand for those who cannot advocate for themselves (the children, the homeless, and the environment.) Even though someone has a platform, is loud and pushy does not mean they are communicating valuable knowledge or truth. The bullies will be running rampant in this climate where people can lose their humanity. We need to choose our battles wisely, yet don’t avoid conflict just to be comfortable. We must stand for ourselves in manner that is both definite and appropriate. What do we stand for and whom shall we protect? The oceans, the trees, the air we breathe, the Earth we live on and the animals all need our help. This Aquarius full moon declares that we are all in this together. Be who you really are not who you think others want you to be. Be true to yourself and live with integrity (it is our spiritual backbone). “By choosing better-feeling thoughts and by speaking more of what you do want and less of what you do not want, you will gently tune yourself to the vibrational frequency of your Broader Perspective. To see your world through the eyes of Source is truly the most spectacular view of life, for from that vibrational vantage point, you are in alignment with—and therefore in the process of attracting—only what you would consider to be the very best of your world.”— Abraham
