Eclipse Breakthrough

Background: Music for meditation and clearing.

For the last couple months water and earth trines have lead the way. The global energetic field has shifted into something uncharacteristically easy. For now Saturn is lending stability. Retrogrades are also assisting. Mars retrograde in Aquarius square Uranus is producing outdoor accidents and misadventures, but incidents are isolated. I didn’t expect it this way looking at the skies late last year. I expected more obvious problems in place impacting people. It doesn’t mean deep structural cracks aren’t spreading. They are, and building much, much more than could ever have been anticipated. Yet for now calm remains. This gives people more time to transmute old ways.

The July 27, 2018 Lunar Eclipse.

The retrogrades will expand to seven planets including Chiron by August 7. This suggests there will be little to disrupt the field over the next few weeks, even with the Lunar Eclipse July 27. Like the previous Solar Eclipse a bump or push can be expected. It might be a bit more as the Mars/Uranus square is triggered, forcing more off the fences and into changes. Family drama/crises can come out at this time but it’s likely to be temporary. The purpose of these next Eclipses is to loosen or break up long-ingrained patterns. Fixed sign people will be more impacted.

Venus is well-positioned in the Lunar Eclipse, in methodical Virgo. Along with Saturn trine Uranus pressure can be relieved, sanity can prevail. This Venus favors deriving pleasure from simpler, practical things. Instead of risky Mars/Uranus outlets, try doing some yoga to manage off-kilter energy. Hit the ocean or lake for a refreshing swim. Overall with seven retrogrades coming and the traditional summer vacation season underway it’s best to put most things on ice. Enjoy yourself, love with your heart wide open. Accept love back. Fully recharge. Breakthroughs await…


Summer Arrives

Summer has arrived in the northern hemisphere, the time of being in the great outdoors and taking in the Sun. Here’s my intuitive/astrological take on this year’s summer energies.

Keynotes: Gentle expansion. Big integration – of new choices, new ways of being and living. Holding steady. Finding yourself more and going deeper. Living your purpose, if you know it. Pursuing happiness. Building on strengths and what’s working. Refinement. Continued planning/preparation for when the long cycles complete. Making time for personal ease and loved ones. Nurturing. Be as light as possible. Shift and improve diet regimes. Do what you are passionate about.

The summer’s first eclipse is on July 12/13.

Astro Outlook: If the continuing insanity of the political/business world is discounted, July should be a good month. The first eclipse shouldn’t wallop, but it could provide a little rush. If you can tap into it’s meaning it may uplift or provide the necessary break. Mars retrograde square Uranus suggests it’s a good time to try new things – without upending reality. Push but don’t overdo. Experimentation OK.

Energies look harder in August. Expect some challenges by then. Conditions change by about July 22 or shortly after. Keep riding the wave and follow through on any intentions. Note what you might be creating (allowing) if you don’t have any or they aren’t firm.

Conclusion: It looks like we might be in a long pattern. Despite episodes of chaos there is still an overriding element of stability. The overarching theme is that major long-term astrological cycles are ending. The Age of Pisces is also wrapping up. As a result, the human species and their societies are undergoing profound and sobering challenges. Great patience, understanding, and forgiveness is required as people try to cope with situations often well beyond their control and as they come to grips with what’s happening and the changes. Summer 2018 can give needed respite. The same may not apply next year, or in 2020. I hope this helps give insight. Have a great summer!
