A Path of Discernment: Astrology of July 17 – July 23, 2018

Whether you are midsummer or midwinter, the Sun is making his way through the last five degrees of the conflict-avoidant sign of Cancer, nuzzling up to an uncomfortable square aspect with Uranus. The First Quarter Moon on July 19 at 12:52pm US/Pacific provides the opportunity to shout about the grievances or griefs, unmet cravings or conflicts going on in your life which may have been boiling over since last week’s Cancer New Moon. Whether it is a good idea or a bad idea to shout it out may not matter much in the heat of the moment, but communications are unlikely to be entirely clear. On July 6, Mercury entered the shadow of the path of their upcoming retrograde, which tends to bring to the surface some of the more typical retrograde hijinks—failing to understand or to be understood, both forgetting and remembering important things or people, receiving new information which completely changes one’s outlook, understanding or opinion, and so on.

Kickstarting Decisions: Astrology of Apr. 10 – Apr. 16, 2018

Welcome to the second week of April 2018 and the Aries New Moon, which is strongly associated with new beginnings, fresh starts and the renewal of a cycle. The Sun squares Pluto and Venus trines Mars (exact Apr. 10), providing some of us with some insight into a struggle for power in our lives. Venus is sitting pretty in her home sign of sensuous, earthy Taurus and also making an opposition with Jupiter in the depths of Scorpio, but the total astrological picture suggests we may need to consciously call in the juicy, open-heartedness that Venus-Jupiter aspect suggests. It’s juicy in that it’s still complicated. Taurus gets a rap of being “simple,” but in the presence of insecurity it can also exhibit jealousy or possessiveness. While this could relate to relationships between people, it could certainly apply to possessiveness of material or worldly goods, or even jealousy of others’ (apparent) spiritual power, knowledge or higher learning.
