The New Moon of July/August
July 31st 11:11 PM 2019
Sun, Moon, and Venus Conjunct!
Trine Chiron and Square Uranus

Late on July 31st (EDT) and in the Western states on August 1st, we are given a significant burst of creative and relational energy in the Leo New Moon. The Sun and Moon are conjunct Venus and her influences become highlighted by this powerful urges or energetic impluses towards creative, new beginnings.

Before I go into the descriptive meanings of this New Moon, I noticed that there was an emphasis on the number 11- being the degree of the Sun and Moon conjunction and also we arrive at the 11th degree of Aries rising in the chart drawn for Charleston, SC that evening…


For those who follow the symbolism of numbers and give credence to the study of numerology, this synergy or synchronicity can hold so intriguing and inspirational messages and possibilities. What could 11:11 mean?

Some people give this ocurrance a personal and even a life altering importance, while others see it as a synchronistic event that acts as a simple spiritual “wake up call!” The whole spectrum of interpretations can apply. After scanning the many pages of possible meanings, my summary is that 11:11 can symbolize an Angelic message that is trying to come to/through you… AND/OR it can be an indication that you are about to enter into a new doorway or phase of your life.
Some people ascribe a more esoteric meaning to this number event by giving it the significance of being a “portal” or an entrance into another realm of consciousness, or a new level of increased awareness. As some of the descriptive articles declare, there can be a permanent change, while others say the presence of these numbers acts as a sacred glimpse; as an awakening into the previously unknown or the unexpected.
I invite you to find/explore these various answers or interpretations and see which of them resonates with you and your life experiences…

The Leo New Moon

My summary emphasizes this time- (most potently from the 30th through to August 3rd) as a time for a distinct beginning, a new inception, even a long awaited launching point.
Since it has the fire of Leo dancing throughout this time period, it can be seen as moving and leaping- moving us into a new phase or awareness of your core identity. From this opening or awakening, we can see more clearly how we are living, and how best to employ your talents and gifts. You will discover (or expose) any patterns that will reveal how you choose partnerships and express your desires and interests in your life!

The Leo areas of our lives will tend to emphasize (exaggerate?) creativity, adventure, taking risks, romance, children, and importantly not being afraid to say what you want from life. Because Venus is connected to this New Moon, additionally we can see a concern for beauty, balance, art, idealism, and the tendency towards infatuation in its many forms and guises.

As I see it, this New Moon acts as a cosmic vision board… but not as commonly understood- as a visualization practice that outlines your wishes and goals. While such exercises can be positive and productive, serving your immediate your aims and goals, it is not the full picture nor is it soulfully complete.
Whenever we are called to a vision, we are also called to an opportunity to express a deeper desire or a higher purpose. However, as a dynamic spiritual balance point, we are also called to clear or clean out a past challenge, a karmic episode, any lingering fears etc.,that have blurred whatever vision we might have!
The New Moon welcomes the appearance of these new challenges from within our deeper recesses of feelings and experiences, and asks us to clear the way so that our choices are more pristine and clear, and we can become more aligned, attuned, and honestly expressive of our innermost values and potentials. As author, astrobutterfly, puts this impulse:
“ Your desire to grow is simply stronger than your fear of change.”

She also speaks cautiously yet convincingly about the other major aspect of the week on August 2nd, 2019 – Venus Square Uranus:
“On August 2nd, 2019 Venus is square Uranus, now at 6° Ta**us. Venus is what we want, and Uranus is freedom. When Venus is square Uranus, we want freedom. Freedom is a little bit more than “I want to do what I want when I want”. Freedom is not about being carefree and careless. Freedom is about taking full responsibility for who you are. When you are true to yourself, to your values, freedom comes automatically.”
Another summary of the potentials of this time comes to us from Diana McMahon Collis, of the most recent Mountain Astrologer (page 91) who describes the influences and effects of this New Moon in these words:

“With this Leo New Moon we are not just breaking up old patterns
We strive to find the shape of a new creation. We must actively set our heart and will on the creative process. Leo relates to the urges of the heart
and people talk about the willingness “to change things in a heartbeat”...
We might have to accept that this will require a serious commitment, patience and careful application”... “Even a small shift can make our world better…”

Mercury is still Retrograde!

But what about Mercury being Retrograde? Doesn’t that ruin creativity?
Doesn’t frustrate our best efforts and will stall our plans? Ordinarily, I would agree to some of these troublesome qualities! However, Mercury stations (stops or halts as he prepares to move ahead again at 23 degrees of Cancer- and more likely to affect any of your planets from 23 to 4 degrees of Leo) Because of this shift in gears, the negative or problematic behavior is lessened or displaced due to the glowing and the potent power of the Leo New Moon as a more definitive initiator of change and the opening of new directions.
One astute astrologer/writer, astrobutterfly, encapsulates the meaning of this last retrograde in these words:

“August couldn’t have started better. On August 1st, Mercury finally goes direct at 23° Cancer. This Mercury retrograde was more difficult than the usual Mercury retrograde because Mercury was inflamed by a prolonged conjunction with Mars. Mars (will power, anger) conjunct Mercury (thoughts, communication) brought anger, resentment, and arguments. Also, because Mercury was retrograde, we found it more difficult to put into words (Mercury) what we want (Mars), which in turn created even more frustration, resentment, and anger. This is all over now. Phew. Mercury is still recovering from a hammering opposition to Pluto, but it’s slowly, slowly departing from the ‘crime scene’. Life will get better and better.”

Other Planetary Factors to Consider:

Sun Trine Chiron… but Square to Uranus...

If you have ever felt cramped, driving down a one way street or feeling as if you were up against a wall in your life, this aspect can signal a turn around and the release of newly found energies. It signals a new strong and more set of confident convictions that can show you that you are now going in a new, expansive direction! The two ways this aspect manifest for us is through the vehicle or expression of healing(around tensions, limits, and feeling held down or held back), and the reconciliation that comes when you are freeing your heart and releasing old feelings when there is an overdue resolution to an old blockage or a negative situation.

However, this New Moon is not without its challenges. The dynamism of this square aspect teaches us that rarely, if ever, does growth or real transformation comes to us without unsettling, erratic, and even some chaotic feelings!
Remember the well known saying about how a crisis contains both danger and opportunity...well, here is the planetary version of it! Under the laws of transformation, feelings of dis-comfort and disillusionment are more often markers for the readiness of change than any feelings of satisfaction or status quo security.

So it is crucially important that when embarking on change, growth, expansion of awareness etc., that you choose to adopt a loving regard for yourself, and let your sense of values and your aspirations towards deeper virtues guide your steps, and inform your actions!

Solstice Sermon Extract...

The Sun, The Soul, and The Solstice

We are now coming to the Summer Solstice- which is the day in astronomy or in a scientific measure, when the Sun shines for the longest time, creating the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The opposite occurs on or about December 21, some six months away. That is the time of the Winter Solstice, when we experience the least amount of sunshine, or what we call the shortest day of the year.
From a mythical viewpoint, one that can connect a deep sense of light to the energy within us, the experience of the light and warmth of the Sun gives our souls a clue for their best expression. The length of daylight corresponds to the time we are urged or encouraged to go or be outdoors in the light, and the sun also signals when it is best for our psyches or souls to seek the darkness for contemplation and rest.
The longest time period for light and outward energies occurs during June-July and the Shortest time occurs between December and January. In the time of increasing light, the soil and the soul warms to invite growth, expansion, and the planting of seeds. Fertile possibilities now can take root, and grow in the earth and in our minds and hearts. In this time of the expansion of light and heat, plants grow to the peak of their height and ripeness, and the creative energies of nature dominate landscape and life.
As this time period applies to humans, what seems to happen more in June or July than any other time of the year?
Hmm... let’s see... traditionally there are more weddings during this time period than any other... more children are conceived .... more people graduate, ripen, mature or move out and away, further up and farther out into the world.... are there any others you can name or add?

In the fields of transpersonal psychology and spirit-centered theology where I make my academic home, it is affirmed and supported that when a person, or a culture, or a nation loses its sense of natural rhythms, cycles and seasons, it endangers their soul; it puts at risk our needed attunement to nature as sacred, which results in a loss of regard for our needs to nurture and reflect, express and create along with these natural cycles.
As geologian Thomas Berry put it:

The human community and the natural world will go forward as a single sacred community, or we will both perish.

In astrological and mythological symbolism, the Sun has come to represent the core, true individuality of a person, as opposed to the learned personality traits or how one learns to respond to cultural ideas and attitudes that comprise social conduct, behaviors, perceptions, and outlooks.

The Sun is the signature self; how we most naturally relate to what is sacred and holy in ourselves, in others, and in nature; The Sun reveals how we best express the gifts and graces, talents, desires, and skills of this life. When a person or a culture forgets about the Sun and the seasons, they can lose contact with the essentials of our interpersonal and interdependent life- the more heart-centered empathetic, and nurturing ways that make relationships more enjoyable and for having a gratitude for life and love more sustainable. (What I worry about concerning electronic addiction or an exclusively social life based on emails and web sites... Obesity and the general lack of communication skills and social graces... The creation of fantasy worlds vs. The courage to live in the real one!)
A couple of provocative, maybe loaded questions:
Do you feel that our society has lost touch with these seasons and reasons? How can we best recover our souls?
Maybe it is that need to recognize and affirm natural ways and cycles of revealed truth that is the yearning that is behind our interest in recapturing many of the Native American celebrations, or the Wiccan and Celtic wisdom traditions, that clearly celebrate the seasons with reverence and delight???

Going a little deeper, we can see in the mythical literature a need to look to the Sun to define our inner being.
In The Upanishads, the ancient sacred texts of Hinduism, we are given a reply to the question the Brahman asks of Ajuna, one of the gods of light and life:
“[Who are you? ... I am a season, and the child of the seasons. I am sprung from the womb of infinite space,
the seed of the husband and the wife, I am the light
of the year, the Self of all that is; and whatever you are,
I am also. ... I am but a phase of the universal life, and
a child of the manifest cycles... I am a spark of the Divine, evolved through the cycle of the twelve stages,
And signs and by my means, is all growth accomplished.]”

Moving to the consideration of the Solstice as the longest and shortest days, we are given the contrasting image and the complementary rotations or resonance that represents the revolving seasons of the soul. One definition of the cycles of the year and the seasons is this; A year, in the life of day and night, is the way the soul moves, manifests and matures itself.
Some of the mythopoetic and metaphysical correlations are these: The solstice points are the only time in the whole year that the Sun stays stationary or is seen as standing still. This station can be seen as a time of concentrated self or soul energy...

A time that reinforces what you know about yourself and can affirm the next steps in your path to more complete selfhood.
Second, the two solstice points act as complementary and supplementary mirrors of beginnings and endings. The solstice points act as the mirror that has two faces- one summer one is concave- a view that elongates the search for authenticity and true definitions, and the winter one has a convex face that widens and deepens introspection, assessment, discipline and inner peace. These points at the beginning of the summer and the winter act as the two faces in the mirror of our being. They complement one another and they place before us the completion of an important life’s task-- These two points give us a special time for expressing and then for integrating what you know about yourself.
Lastly, the solstice points are an opportune and gracious time for the recapturing and the reconnecting of your personal and relational missing links- those parts of you that you had previously let go or places in your life where you have felt lacking or where you have felt that something is missing. The solstice time period offers us the spiritual opportunity that gives us both the time and energy to reclaim and reconnect them.

A parting thought, from one of my recent research projects about connections and correlations between grace and time:
“[We live in a soul-centered universe, and all beings share in the blessed perpetual motion of the world within and the world without. ... These cycles of time and awareness are ours to discern and comprehend; to translate and apply to the complex world of human understanding and behavior. By following the mythic path of The Sun that will reveal out inner and outer connections to a more seasonal, sensual, and soulful life, we can find more of the answers to how we can find out more about our true selves.]”

Happy Solstice... and may the Long Time Sun shine upon you, All love surround you... and may the gifts of the Solstice be yours to know! So Be It!

May the long time sun
Shine upon you, All love surround you,
And the pure light within you
Guide your way on.

[07/07/21]   The New Moon in July
July 9, 2021 at 9:16 AM EDT
Sun/Moon at 18 Cancer; Trine MC Sextile Uranus; later Venus Conjoins Mars in Leo

Many astrologers would agree with the teaching about this particular new moon: That it is one of the more ideal times for self care, proper nurturing activities, nutritional support and over all approaches to giving yourself some excellent TLC for what has been quite a challenging year! IF you have not yet booked an excellent therapeutic massage, a quality Reiki session, a well qualified yoga retreat or some similar approach to well being and nurture, this is the time for it! It is also the most fertile time in the Zodiac…
So if you want something to grow, this is the ideal or best time for sowing those seeds, starting creative or domestic projects or beginning to write poetry or a journal where feeling have a centering and prominent role...However, it is also a very potent time for conception, so there is a need to be cautious during these days!

The Moon being in its home sign of Cancer confers a greater degree of emotional sensitivity… After all, it is its home sign and it is where she is the most comfortable and the most aligned with your sensitivities and talents! When the Sun accompanies her, it can also allow for more emotional vitality and clarity… of course, this cannot come to us without some surprises! We also have, as the dominant aspect for this lunation (when giving no more than 4 degrees orb) to the unpredictable planet, Uranus!

The unpredictability and the serendipity that often accompanies Uranus could indicate that there will be a time for mutual healing, or it could, by the indications in your own chart, foretell a time when you might find yourself having to expectedly care for another person… While none of these possibilities are assured, the best outlook is the willingness to care and to extend oneself towards whatever appears to be the most nurturing and/or the most compelling for you!

Remember that Cancer as a sign is cardinal water; it does not hold itself back or down or could wallow in any negativity like resentment. Most astrologers would give those charming qualities to Scorpio! As cardinal water, Cancer represents active feelings- the present tense where feelings flow towards any people or places it senses would be receptive towards them...

As the new moon in each of its cycles through the signs offers us the opportunity of new beginnings and new experiences, this particular one can center herself on family matters and on the experience of what feels right rather than any logical or more rational processes.
One needs or desires to work through understanding of one another with an emphasis on appreciation, not distance or criticism… The sensitivities of the heart are utmost at this time, and a quality of defensiveness can easily be triggered, so being aware of this, and if affection and appreciation for one another is your ultimate goal, then be sure to emphasize what is going well, and how valuable and important that person is in your life...OK?
Given the approach I take to these reports where I offer only strict or tight orbs to the aspects, I find it valuable to offer some guidance concerning the planetary aspects leading into the new moon and those that will follow closely after it… So, in that regard, the planetary prelude comes to us from Venus square to Saturn and she is also square to Uranus… Remember, we will have the harsh and challenging energies of the Saturn to uranus square with us most of the year and will not see it begin to truly resolve and pass out of energetic imp[ulses until the first of next year. 2022.
When a planet is square to either Saturn or Uranus, it is usually within range of being square to both. That is the situation with Venus during the 7th and the 8th… Thankfully, because she is a fast moving planet, these difficult energies do not last long or have the same lasting intensity that a planet like Jupiter would convey….
With these tensions in mind, I would say that it would be prudent not to start a relationship at this time but to wait until the planets of passion and connection conjoin next week in the case of Venus and Mars…. This week, however, there is probably a lot of relational chafing, irritation, feeling of constriction and obligation that have to be addressed… Saturn almost always dampens enthusiasm for relationships by placing restrictive obligations on them, whereas the Uranian square makes us feel antsy and unsatisfied, wanting to release any confining feelings and express a relational freedom that encourages us to break out and break through any limitations or restrictions we feel or that make us restricted in our attention or affections.

April Elliot Kent, astrologer and blog writer gives us some additional insights on the nature of Venus to Uranus… She writes:
Just two days later, Venus squares Uranus (July 8, 2021, 12:25 pm PDT). Here’s an opportunity to break away from other people’s opinions about our worthiness and instead, celebrate our true, unique beauty – of face, body, mind, talent, and spirit.
Venus is also a financial planet, and money is another way of evaluating what things – and what we ourselves – are worth. When Venus tangles with Saturn, we usually have to work extra-hard for our money (Saturn). And during her skirmishes with Uranus, we might encounter sudden gains or reversals (Uranus). That’s noteworthy from a practical standpoint, but also because our relationship with money reveals scads about our confidence, security, and values. Sample questions: Are you giving more than you’re getting? And is money making you more or less free?

Donna Woodhall, astrologer and Pagan teacher, offers us this additional synopsis of the new moon and the energies that are surrounding her in these words:

There’s a fixed T-square at the time of the New Moon, including Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Ta**us, and a Venus-Mars conjunction in Leo. Saturn square Uranus is the signature aspect of 2021 (because it involves two slow-moving planets, it’s the most long-term aspect). Saturn in Aquarius can be objective and fair-minded; but his dark side is intolerance for those with other ideologies than his own.
Uranus in Ta**us shakes us out of ruts, and challenges definitions of pleasure and our relationship to earthy things. It’s an uncomfortable pairing, illuminating the strain extreme individualism creates in the environment.
Venus and Mars in Leo are heating things up in more ways than one — from the weather to human passions. You may find tempers flaring, especially in interpersonal relationships.
The Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are also all in their own signs. There’s not a lot of room for compromise, everyone is convinced their way is best. Nevertheless, things may turn out better than expected, since a lot of planets are in an inherently good mood.
All in all, it may feel like you’re jumping into the middle of a movie. Characters are set, the action is in motion, all you can do is try to figure out what’s going on and see where it goes. There’s not a lot of wiggle room for making changes, but even if things seem dark and combative, it’s likely they will turn out better than expected. ...
I review the summary paragraphs, and then brainstorm a remedy readers can work with. The remedy should focus on supporting the positive side of the forecast, and avoiding the pitfalls. Something like:
It may not be an easy time, but it will pass. Avoid getting caught in the drama by resisting attachments, especially to your own point of view. What people do now may be motivated more by fear or habit, and not what they truly desire. When in doubt, give yourself a time out to cool off, literally or figuratively. Things will feel better when the heat breaks and the sense of paralysis lifts.
After the new moon influences begin to wane, we have the metal and social shift of Mercury moving from its home sign of Gemini into the much more illogical and temperamental, the more sensitive and intuitive sign of Cancer… Instead of the emphasis being on gathering in reams of facts, information and social avenues of expressions that are the highlight of Mercury in Gemini, we are challenged/gifted with the need to relax the analytical brain our out=rs and become more open and receptive to the new exploratory fields that could be gathered together as “emotional intelligence.”
Emotional Intelligence is a term that Dr. Dan Goldman expanded on that works to cover all the dimensions of our intellect and social interactions that do not ascribe to dialogue and debate… Emotional intelligence takes a more gestalt approach or a view of the whole person/situation and appraises its meaning and importance based on intuitive feelings, subtle energies of interaction such as body language and intonation of words, and through a more visceral recognition of what is being expressed more of the whole picture is revealed…

Here is the definition of emotional intelligence from the APA ( American Psychological Association:
emotional intelligence
a type of intelligence that involves the ability to process emotional information and use it in reasoning and other cognitive activities, proposed by U.S. psychologists Peter Salovey (1958– ) and John D. Mayer (1953– ).
According to Mayer and Salovey’s 1997 model, it comprises four abilities: to perceive and appraise emotions accurately; to access and evoke emotions when they facilitate cognition; to comprehend emotional language and make use of emotional information; and to regulate one’s own and others’ emotions to promote growth and well-being.
Their ideas were popularized in a best-selling book by U.S. psychologist and science journalist Daniel J. Goleman (1946– ), who also altered the definition to include many personality variables.
I recommend Goldman’s books that further explore and refine the concept of emotional intelligence. From the astrological perspective, emotional intelligence and Mercury in Cancer could be teaching us many of the same themes and will stress the importance of heart and body wisdom on the way to having a more complete understanding of ourselves, others, society, and our world…
Celestial Blessings, Peter

[06/23/21]   The Full Moon in Capricorn
June 24, 2021 2:40 PM EDT
3 Degrees of Capricorn/Cancer
Sextile Jupiter in Pisces

Happy belated Solstice! It would have given us much in the way of emotional intensity so that this full moon that comes on its heels might actually feel more like a respite than a challenge, more like a coming together of loose ends while providing us with some soothing energies and a heightened sense of inspiration…
As a quick review, Solstice points could also be understood as transformational places where something from the past will come to an end, while other experiences will be birthed into your new reality! This Summer Solstice is the convex one; it is the more expansive solstice or the one that spreads out its energies and allows them to flourish… Quite suitable for the seeding, hot, dry and faster-growing seasons in the Northern Hemisphere… This Solstice was a time of welcoming or planting new possibilities and to focus on how best to nurture and expand ideas and ideals that have already taken root in our lives…

Previous to the Solstice, we were greeted by the beginning of the planet Jupiter going into his retrograde phase on the 20th and that motion will last most of the Summer and through the Fall… This reverse direction provides us with ample time for revision and reconsideration of what we thought was true and a new, clear path ahead… It is also a time when “You know what you know” can act as a confirmation of messages you have received that can be acted on with confidence. The challenge will be applying the deeper sense of your personal truth to the world around you; to our social media and to the task of separating “the wheat from the chaff…”
Additionally, the prelude to this full moon is the Mercurial shift in its direction back to its forward motion… and as I have experienced, it's none too soon! It brought with it a dubious gift of confusion and since it was intimately involved with the solar eclipse, its ability to cloud the mind and give dubious directions was at its height! Be sure to give yourself a couple of days without big decision-making or distant travel until Mercury sets itself on a clear and direct course…

After further research on the impact of the eclipse, I found that there was a Neptunian quality that, in my enthusiasm for its positive potential, I had missed! While the messages you or I received during the eclipse time could have been dramatic, so too, were the Neptunian possibilities for confusion or misinterpretations!

Thankfully, this aspect wanes into its own demise soon after the retrograde stops when on the 22-23rd, we can experience a calming and clearing sextile aspect between Saturn and Chiron that brings a healing resolution and a calming benefit to whatever upheavals and difficulties we had experienced over the eclipse period that can soothe tensions to place a healing balm on any friction or fractures that might have occurred in the 2 weeks before...

When we add the positive energies of this particular full moon with its encouraging aspect to the more expansive and optimistic Jupiter, even though it will remain retrograde for some time, its gift to us is a desire for steady optimism- we are given a large dose of hope for whatever parts of our lives need revitalization, and for whatever endeavors need affirmation and a shot of positive energy to thrive! The only caveat… (remember we are talking about Capricorn which always provides us with any necessary lessons we have to learn) is the need to be persistent with our goals, but also be aware of how we use whatever influence or power we have and to always check in on our motives concerning how best to express our influence…

Another perspective on the meaning of this full moon comes to us from Lena of the School of shamanism. She offers us these insights from her understanding of what this moon can bring to us:
This is an optimistic time and could be very prosperous if you can move through the challenges of the distractions of drama and ego-driven negative behaviors in yourself and in others that may crop up. Honesty, emotional vulnerability, humility, and a good spiritual base are important foundational aspects for success during this time. It can be a very expansive time especially if you can harness positivity and optimism. It is a good time to reflect on the containers of your life. What is too small, too big, completed etc. We have some good momentum to initiate the creation of some new containers for ourselves for this cycle.
One the one hand you have the excitement and inspiration of a new container and new possibilities for expansion and partnerships. On the other hand, you may have the personal challenges of self doubt and sifting through some of the negative aspects of your personality that may get in the way of truth and clarity of intention. Even though the energy is moving more freely now, there is still some residual tension around restrictions, delays and right timing. Be patient, enjoy the process, love your friends and community, have a little gratitude, be creative.”

Astro-butterfly also offers a more in-depth look and offers us a unique perspective on this particular full moon… She writes:
“On June 24th, 2021 we have a Full Moon in Capricorn. This is a beautiful Full Moon that will give us a renewed sense of faith and optimism. Faith and optimism and a Full Moon in… Capricorn? If you pay attention to the Lunar cycles you may have noticed that the previous Full Moons in Capricorns have not been the most “flamboyant” Full Moons out there.
But unlike last year’s Capricorn Full Moons which were Saturn and Pluto-influenced, the upcoming Full Moon in Capricorn is Jupiter-influenced, so it’s much more optimistic than usual. The Full Moon in Capricorn on June 24th, 2021 is one of the most positive and constructive Full Moons of the year! It is about time…”
… She goes on to teach about the dimensions of space and time as it relates to the Solstices and Equinoxes in these words:
“Everything that happens between the moment we are born and the moment we die is created within the Cancer/Capricorn passing of time. Cancer (the IC in the natal chart) is where we come from. Capricorn (the Midheaven in the natal chart) is where we’re heading.
If the Aries/AC and Libra/DC axis answer the question “Who am I?”, the Cancer/IC, Capricorn/MC axis answers the question “What should I do with my life?”.
...The Full Moon in Capricorn is a reconciliation between our past and the treasures we carry, and the possibilities of the future.
...The Saturn-Uranus square has triggered a systemic shakeup in our lives. As you may know, the Saturn-Uranus square is active throughout the whole of 2021. In 2021, it’s not only one area of our life that requires our attention… We are up for a complete overhaul. But from time to time, beautiful alignments like the Full Moon in Capricorn come to remind us that our hard work is not in vain….So we have to be ready. We have to be well prepared.”
The last two considerations for this full moon time period concern the movement of Neptune and the transit of Venus…
Remembering that the transpersonal planets- Uranus, Neptune and Pluto- have long and extended and erratic shapes to their orbits, it only follows that when any of these more wide-ranging planets go retrograde, it can be for an extended period of time…

It is also widely held that when these transpersonal planets shift, stop, and begin to move either backward or forward, we can experience an intensification of their messages and energies…

On the 25th, Neptune moves into its retrograde phase or portion of its orbit…
Given that we have the most spiritual planet, Neptune, residing in and now moving backward further into Pisces, the most spiritual and metaphysical of all the signs, we are in store for the more the esoteric and what could easily be called the “dream dimensions” of human life and our human psyche/souls to be revisited or to be re-awakened from any dormant cycles…

Depending on where Pisces is in your chart, that area of life and its concerns could become the source of your psychic feelings, the topic of your dreams, the focus of your creativity, and the source of the mysterious and inspirational for you! As Astro Butterfly puts it,
“Let’s say something happens to us but we can’t really process it. This unprocessed thought or feeling eventually shows up in a dream. We get stuck in a problem and we can’t seem to find a solution, but then suddenly, when we take a shower or go for a walk, the solution comes to us. Dreams, serendipities, unexpected encounters… These are all the workings of Neptune.”

The last, and possibly the most enjoyable shift among the planets is when Venus enters into the sign of Leo on the 27th… Be ready for some drama!

Dorothy Oja gives us this succinct yet powerful description of what we could expect from the planet of enjoyment during her travels through Leo…

Venus in the Sun’s sign wants to play and enjoy life to the max. Laughter is the best medicine, so throw your cares away and rekindle the exuberance of your inner-child. Participate and find occasions for fun, humor, and play, or the simple joys of being alive. We can’t be serious all the time, c’mon!
This Venus’s tendency is to be very loving, even wearing its heart on its sleeve. It seeks love and it gives love unless there are mitigating factors. It is creative, loyal, bold, and direct in its expression. It joins Mars already in Leo. Get ready for some drama as well as a lot of fun.

Celestial Blessings, Peter
