Opportunities to open more fully to your intuitive guidance abound this week, through aspects hard and soft.
One is the New Moon in Cancer, with its tight trine to Neptune. Another is a volatile Mars-Uranus opposition, while otherworldly Neptune squares Venus and trines the Sun. The stage is set for an inspired week!
Inspiration is available for relationship healing and fine-tuning your creative projects with Venus quintile Chiron.
Venus transits Gemini today through 7/18. Harmonious communication in relationships and creative writing are supported.
No major astrological events.
Today’s opposition between Libran Mars and Arean Uranus can be a powder keg, so proceed with caution. Avoid volatile people and situations as much as possible, and be on your best behavior as you relate with others. This aspect also supports taking immediate action on your intuitive flashes.
This Mars-Uranus opposition is part of the Mars-Uranus-Pluto T-square that peaked on 6/19.
Taking action with a firm but feminine hand is supported with Pluto trine Pallas Athena.
A New Moon at 4:09 am (5°37′ Cancer) supports new beginnings in the areas of family, security and nurturing. This lunation’s sole aspect, a tight Neptune trine, can make it easy to stay open to divine consciousness and inspired creativity.
This New Moon’s Sabian Symbol, “In spring game birds are feathering their nests,” alludes to both death and prosperity. It reminds us to live this incarnation to the fullest because our physical bodies won’t last forever!
No major astrological events.
Nurturing others with divine love is smoothly supported with the Cancerian Sun trine Neptune. Here’s an invocation you can use to do this: “Spirit that I am, please flow the energy through me to serve [name of person’s] highest good.” After saying this, relax and rest in passive breath awareness — no visualizing! Let your divine aspect use your body as a conduit for the energy.
Bonus: after doing this, most people feel much better themselves! Learn more about my FREE Heal and Awaken Invocations.
Some people will experience psychological wounding with Libran Mars quincunx Chiron. But if you make the right adjustment this aspect is great for mentoring and healing, especially in your key relationships.
Possible challenges with Venus square Neptune can be confusion or aimlessness in relationships, creativity and finances. But you can also choose to focus on upside possibilities such as energized divine union practices and amplified creativity. With Venus in Gemini, creative writing and thinking get a special boost.
It’s best to avoid starting important new projects or making major purchases during void-of-course Moons. “Business as usual” is the optimal strategy. Void-of-course Moons occur when the Moon has made her last major Ptolemaic aspect, but has not yet moved into her next sign.
