Hold on to your hats folks, because we are in for a ride. This new moon in Leo on July 28th signifies a time to be playful, personal self-expression, leadership, a time of joy and action. Other influences will be the possibility of the expansions of abundance, the teacher & reckoner of lessons & lastly a huge thrust forward toward the future with an awakening in mind. The most significant energy started a few days before the New Moon & peaks on the 31st. It involves the North Node (energy guiding us into the future), Uranus (the great awakener where anything can & will happen), Mars ( the planet of action) conjuncting (melding of planet energies) in Taurus (smart, ambitious & trustworthy). This conjunction is being compared in significance to 2020 where Jupiter (global expansion), Saturn (the teacher) & Pluto (death & rebirth) were in a great eliminator angle to the North Node (the future). That angle said, we are leaving the old world behind and moving into a new direction, into the new world that has been being created right under our noses & many of us have not been paying attention. I think we can all agree that 2020 forever changed our lives. Now 2 yrs. later we are entering Uranus (the great awakener) going into retrograde for 10-14 weeks, 18 degrees of Taurus (smart, ambitious & trustworthy). Uranus will be completely still when it is conjunct with the North Node (move us to the future) & Mars (planet of action). When a planet is not moving (Uranus), it’s energy is way more powerful. Therefore what is ahead, is Uranus sending us a lightening bolt of energy to move us forward into the future with the intention of waking us up, however we need awakened! If you know your natal chart, you can look up which House Taurus is in to prepare how the energies will affect you. If not, you can go to https://www.astro.com/cgi/chart.cgi to see your natal chart and find out, but it would require you to know your birth time, birth location & your date of birth for an accurate chart. If not, think back on the past 7 months and where your challenges have been in life & that will be your clue. The message here is, this bolt of energy can be either negative or positive for your life, depending on how awake you are and how much work you have done in this area of your life.
With each New Moon, it is a time to set intentions. How you set your intentions with the influence of Leo (and other influences) will affect how you will be propelled forward to accomplish these seeds you plant. This time should be about expressing ourselves in the world for the good of all. Work toward tapping into your personal creative expression & sharing your individual gifts with the world. It is a time to move forward in the world with your purpose & put it into action. It is advised by Astrologer, Michael Lennox to plant your intentions more in how you want to feel than the actual form you want it to take. As Uranus does not care whether it is good or bad & depending on where you are at with your growth, you will be thrust forward powerfully ready or not. Remember to every positive, there is a shadow (lessons to be learned before you can have what you wish for & our wishes are not always in the form we want, but in the form we need). Don’t wish on a star you are not prepared to handle in growth & awareness to accomplish it. Come from an authentic & honest place.
How can you help humanity at this crazy time when we are being forced into a future blindly that none of us knows the outcome? Think in the long term, not the short term. Don’t get caught up in finger pointing at people who are not awake or contributing to the things you oppose. Be a beacon of light, meditate for the good of the collective to awaken in a healing sense or to manage the thrust forward into expansion with support, grace, peace and love. Connect with spirit in a partnership and use the wisdom gathered as you follow your heart forward. We all are in this together and the best thing we can do is extend goodness to everyone to best benefit positive change. No matter how crazy this world seems right now, know that your actions make a difference in shifting the course of the outcome. We always have a choice even when it appears there is no hope. Having hope is what stirs the pot to provide momentum forward.
Lets see what the cards have to say & I will ask: What is it we all need to know in this abundant, awakening time to show leadership & remain optimistic? Using Wisdom of the Oracle deck by Collette Baron-Reid I drew: “Building Blocks” in protection mode. This card is saying (from the book) it is time to evaluate the values & convictions in your life. Let go of things that no longer serve your vision moving forward. Remove the rotten pieces and reinforce your core moral strength & integreity. Now is the time for rigorous honesty, for you are called to renovate and upgrade your consciousness! Spirit has a beautiful blueprint of our life far beyond your imagination. Don’t be afraid to replace what’s not solid. Well, I think the deck’s book explained it pretty well, but I’ll share my intuitive thoughts as well. Time to get in touch with what you have been longing to do, allow yourself to be who you are and demonstate it. Believe in your drive, passions and creativity. Start something and see where it leads you. Make necessary changes to tweak your path forward to stay on course as you grow and see change. Let go of what drags you down and no longer serves your highest good. Let go of your grip on familiar and comfort because these are opposite times. Trust your partnership with spirit moving forward to help guide you into the unknown. When you are being true to yourself with the good of all in your intentions, you will be lead to opportunities of self-fullfillment. If you act on those opportunities you will benefit the world by spreading your talents that can affect others in a positive way. Don’t let the bumps in the road stop you. Have courage, lock arms with the people who give you the strenth to fulfill your purpose.
