FullMoon660We finally arrived at the “almost” end of this second Mercury retrograde cycle of the year and as a reminder of this event, which takes place tomorrow, yesterday I took the Barcelona railways to go to “plaza Catalunya” and a malfunction in the computers of the train, forced us all to get out at another station and the commotion was typical of retrograde Mercury. I say near final, because the shadow period of this cycle, continues until August 4th, although the direct motion begins tomorrow.
We are on the eve of the Full Moon in Aquarius, third Supermoon of the year, reaching its peak on Monday 22nd at sunset. Which means that the Sun will be entering Leo at the same time, since this lunation occurs at the Acuario-Leo 0 ° 06′. The angularity Leo – Aquarius, really confronts us with the dilemma of pushing ourselves to take center stage (Leo), but, with a strong team (Aquarium)in the back. It reminds us that in order to have the success we want, after we have set it within ourselves, we must also find a suitable team to make it come true. Alone, is very difficult, if not impossible. The union and collaboration with other creative minds, each adding their part to the project, may help it get far beyond than planned. This is an angularity that resonates with the Houses 5 and 11 of our chart and illuminates the relationship with our children and friendship. How friends of our children we can be and where the limits between being a parent or a “colleague” lies. This angularity also speaks of our personal hopes and those of our community. Do we share the aspirations of our tribe or do we feel “out of the pack” (Aquarius)?.
Aquarius in certain aspects, perennially feels “out of the herd”, with great difficulty to obtain membership as set forth by the “tribe”. “Solitude” is an Aquarian feeling, but it could be used as the stimulus to discover who we really are (Leo) and eventually, what is that which we have within ourselves, which can enrich the tribe. The angularity Leo-Acuario, talks about what makes us unique and special but at the same time, the way in which we can contributes to the community. And as we already learned in Cancer, “the community” to which we belong to doesn’t necessarily have to be the one we were born into or that qhere our parents were born, but perhaps that which our soul has led us to. The saying: “not everyone can be a prophet in their own land” echoed in my ears.
Saturn in Scorpio, formes a T-square with this lunation, forming a square (90 °) with the Moon and the Sun, and we know what the Saturnian affairs are all about: we must face up to our past decisions, take responsibility for our actions and become adults. Time to re-define our priorities and act accordingly. But Saturn at the same time is forming the wonderful Grand Trine to Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter and Mars in Cancer, what resonates in our ears in a positive and optimistic voices. A constant inspiration to remind us that we must abandon our negativity, as a habit. Our negative and useless criticism only pollutes the soul, and blocking us, when making decisions or taking risks to grow and thrive. Life without decisions and risks is a sterile life, without progress, without learning.
At the same time as Mars and Jupiter in Cancer, they form this trine, they are also responsible for activating the current square between Uranus and Pluto we all are living since 2008. Therefore many of the themes that, especially, Cardinal signs (Aries-cancer – Libra – Capricorn) are living with, will receive a “after-shock” or an opportunity to examine more deeply whatever they are trying to or struggling to resolve. Mars opposes Pluto on 27 and 28 of July, and Jupiter will do so between the 7 and 8 of August. Mars, on the 31st of July will form a exact square to Uranus and Jupiter will do it on August 20 and 21, therefore more sudden violence among different tribes are expected, all over the world. With more Governments being challenged by the people. The street demonstrations in the United States by the unexpected acquittal, by a popular jury, of George Zimmerman, the young guy of Latin origin that killed Trayvon Martin, African-American teenager last year. Despite having admitted to have shot and killed him, they left him free. The African-American community all over the States has erupted in demonstrations throughout the country. Crazy decision! i wonder why they thought he shouldn’t go to jail.
Ceres, the asteoide and the goddess of agriculture and food, forms a square with the Lunar Nodes, for this full moon, just as the issue of the 23 Indian children poisoned in a school, with food prepared with oil that was in cans of insecticide has been made public. The Sun is in conjunction to Vesta. All these energies remind us of the power of the feminine and the importance in this time of change, that female voices be heard, such as that of Malala, the girl who was shot by the Taliban, for fighting for the right to education of women in Pakistan. Two years after the incident that almost ended her life, this extraordinary young woman, stood on the podium of the United Nations, and said: “the Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. They shot my friends, too. They thought that the bullets would silence us, but they failed. And out of that silence came thousands of voices. The terrorists thought they would change my aims and stop my ambitions. But nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born”. Can you believe this girl? If you are low in inspiration and courage, watch her speech in YouTube, here.
Venus enters Virgo a few hours before the Moon reaches its peak, opposing Neptune in PISCES, bringing a wave of romance and fantasy in our lives. The typical American phrase: “Follow your dreams” (or always follow your heart) whispers in my ear and I think once more. Why not? Life is this huge fantasy that can be everything you want it to be. Within our Destiny, we can do what we want, so why not dream and propel ourselves to do everything that we see in our wildest dreams.
In the end, on a slightly lighter note, this full moon, may finally bring to the world Kate and William’s child so awaited in England! just when the Sun enters Leo, very appropriate for the birth of a future King/Queen. We shall see.
Enjoy these important moments and let your inner voice guide your steps. Do not listen to anyone else but you.
