Expansion & Liberation coming together can shock the system, no doubt, and this activation will push you out of your comfort zone, whether your life is changing for better or worse. It's time to gather all the knowledge & earned wisdom of the last 3-years and apply it to see what works and what doesn't.
We don’t hear too much about Sigmund Freud these days, but he popped into my mind when I looked at the charts for this weekend. He would no doubt have appreciated the irony of his current return to my consciousness because the charts speak powerfully now about what he termed the ‘return of the repressed’.
As the call to stillness continues, we are reminded today that stillness does not equal avoidance and it’s important that we recognise when we may have slipped from the former into the latter. A truly still heart can contain all that exists, both dark and light, pain and pleasure, love and hate.
Today we have a waxing Quarter Moon in Scorpio. At this point in the Moon’s cycle energies are on the increase and we are best focused upon identifying our goals, defining our action plan and getting to grips with the steps needed to get us from here to there.
This energy is good for deep thinking. You are sharp and your standards are high because you are in 'strategy mode'. This is a more solitary energy though, so communications with others may be hampered a bit.
At the beginning of August I spoke about the Jupiter/ Uranus/ Pluto T Square which forms a backdrop throughout this month, helping us connect with our own power in the face of conditions which threaten to weaken and discourage us.
There’s a great need for voices to be heard now, but not the ones which usually take centre stage. We need to hear new messages, fresh perspectives, voices previously silenced or whispered only in darkened rooms out of earshot.
Today’s New Moon encourages us to joyful expression and a releasing of burdens. Here we have an opportunity to take life a little less seriously and find a more playful approach to some of the things that try us.
The Leo new Moon falls on August 6 in the United States and August 7 in Australia. It's a bit of a push-me pull-you type of new Moon as it trines Uranus but squares the Moon's nodes. There could be confusion over what's really going on, are we coming or going?
