Astro Energy Report Highlights
All dates are at exact peak of intensity when energies begin to culminate and wane. If you have personal planets or points within 1-2º orb of an aspect that’s occurring between planets then you will feel that celestial event more strongly.
On July 30th Venus (the lover) at 28º Gemini Sextile Uranus (the Awakener) in Aries. Great day for making electrifying love connections.
On July 30th 7º Scorpio First Quarter Moon. Time to let go of anything holding you back.
On July 31st Venus enters sign of Cancer until August 25th. You’ll find pleasure in home activities now and hanging out with close friends and family. Great for getting pregnant, especially when Moon is transiting through earth sign of Taurus on 13th and 14th of August.
On August 2nd Uranus stations Retrograde at 28º31’ Aries until the first of January 2018. That’s right 2018 starts off with Uranus Station Direct. Could be a very eccentric year when originality is highlighted. Its time to do whatever you do differently. Sudden, unexpected and extraordinary events are likely. Notice what happens during this period as it can foreshadow events to occur for you in 2018.
In Mid-may of 2018 Uranus will cross over into the sign of Taurus when sudden events that effect planet earth may occur. Stay posted for more about this in upcoming posts.
On August 4th Jupiter at 17º Libra makes its final Square to Pluto in Capricorn. Jupiter’s T-Square to Pluto and Opposition to Uranus has dogged us all year. This T-Square has been triggered by your personal planets as they transited through Aries this past spring and this summer forming a Cardinal Grand Cross when transiting through Cancer. We still have Venus left to go this month of August, but finally Jupiter will be leaving Libra making its final Opposition to Uranus on September 27th. Jupiter will then move into Scorpio, ahead of your personal planets moving through the sign of Libra. Yay!
After Jupiter passes its Final Opposition to Uranus it will then have the controlling influence in the zodiacal sky until it passes Saturn and Pluto in November and December at the end of 2020. II’ll keep you posted on this, but generally Jupiter is in good auspicious aspect with all the planets all of next year. So, even though it can be a very eccentric year when nothing seems to go according to plan the outcomes are fortunate, no matter how they may at first appear.
On August 7th we have the Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse. We’ve been in the corridor of the eclipse for a couple of weeks now. Especially since the Leo New Moon on July 23rd and, the days leading up to it. You may have noticed events and occurrences that are leading you to the changes about to take place for you now. More on the Aquarius Full Moon Lunar Eclipse next week!
The theme of this Summer’s Eclipse is freedom to express your originality. There’s potential for fresh new love, creativity and romance in your life. The way you feel about yourself and life can really get an upgrade now.
On August 12th Mercury Stations Retrograde at 11º38’ Virgo. Mercury entered its shadow (the degree to which it will Retrograde back to) on July 24th. More in next week’s Astro Energy Report.
Stock Up On Your Mercury Retrograde Oil
“So glad I got this delivered at my rural Western Australia PO Box before the end of Mercury Retrograde and have heaps for future! I truly suffer at Mercury retrograde and this has been a blessing for me for 2 years and I expect longer with the bigger bottle! Service and assistance was top value.”
-Denise Hargreaves, Gibson, Western Australia
“KG makes this fantastic anti-Mercury Retrograde oil. She sent me some and I used it, and I had a great Mercury Retrograde. Thank you for that. I actually think it’s very good. It helps you get the most out of the Mercury retrograde cycle.”
– Astrologer Yasmin Boland, Bondi Beach, Australia
VOID OF COURSE MOON PERIODS
The moon represents your emotional needs. Your emotions fluctuate with the moon as it moves through its 28-day cycle around the zodiac from new moon to full and back to new. Notice how the moon’s placement in the zodiac affects your mood and emotions. Essential oils can help stabilize your mind and emotions. Generally earthy scents have the most harmonizing and stabilizing effects on the emotions.
These are great periods for taking it easy and going with the flow of events and completing projects. During Void of Course Moons your emotional body is going through a period of processing and integrating your recent experiences. You naturally clear out your emotions during these periods. Doing things that helps with this natural process are especially helpful now, i.e. relaxation, yoga, movement, hot baths with sea salts and essential oils, focused breathing.
Void of Course Moon Phases are not good for starting new projects, or launching new ventures, or having meetings (if you want to achieve anything), or signing contracts and making agreements as it’s less likely anything will come of any agreement, or it will be sluggish and slow to start.
For your New and Full Moon, or even Quarter Moon Rituals make sure the Moon is not Void of Course and in aspect to another celestial body when doing your ritual for best results.
- On July 29th we have an 3 hour Void of Course Moon from 2:30pm PT to 5:23pm PT when the Libra Moon moves into the sign of Scorpio.
- On July 31st we have a 25 hour Void of Course Moon from 4:10am PT to 5:01am PT on August 1st when the Scorpio Moon enters the sign of Sagittarius.
- On August 3rd we have a 3 hour Void of Course Moon from 2:38pm PT to 5:37pm PT when the Sagittarius Moon enters the sign of Capricorn.
