ARIES:  Honoring what is creatively sacred to you is important as Uranus trines the asteroid Vesta.  Trusting your gut instinct and that profound voice within despite any outward appearances is your mission.  The New Moon on the 16th in your house of creativity paves the way for opportunity to align more deeply with heart rooted inspiration and love.  Your personal life is gaining in strength, support and foundation building in feeling safe in this world to express and influence both your life direction and career ambitions.  Be ethical, wise and aware of the fragility of ego – both yours and others who are in a position to help you.

TAURUS:  Passion is the fuel over the next month as Eros the god of love, enters your 3rd house of communications, writing, internal dialogues, locale and education.  When we are feeling passionate about our life and self-expression opportunity follows.  Mercury now clears his shadow phase bolstering your ability to enter agreements knowing that you have all the relevant information.  The New Moon on the 6th promises fresh and supportive energy in your personal and spiritual life, home and family, and in your confidence levels.  Trust what you feel.

GEMINI:  An auspicious New Moon occurs on the 6th in your 3rd house of communications.  Mercury is also now past his retrograde shadow phase in your house of earnings.  Positive developments can be expected in your commercial activities, writing, speaking, earnings and travel.  Trust that what is on offer is real, genuine and solid.  Financial success is quite possible this week as Jupiter’s expansive influence makes contact with heavy hitter Pluto.  Ethics and right relationships are squarely in the frame. 

CANCER:  Enlightened self-interest is a term that comes to mind.  Reaching out for more – more experience, contact, growth and knowledge is your mandate.  You are meant to grow in many ways this year and this month Eros, the god of love enters your sign for a 4 week stay.  Passion is the name of the game and being mindful of the others in your world  is imperative as is mindfulness regarding other people’s egos and vulnerabilities.  If you can navigate this interpersonal dynamic success of some sort is surely granted.  The New Moon on the 6th brings opportunity in the way of earnings, the sharing of your personal talents and hence, self-esteem.


LEO:  Celebration of self is indicated as your personal New Moon occurs on the 6th bridging ingenuity to your higher mind and wisdom.  Wisdom flows in applying your knowledge to daily living otherwise it is simply mental gymnastics without substance.  Uranus is also trining the asteroid Vesta traveling through Leo urging you to trust your instincts and inspired intuition.  Mercury enters your sign on the 8th bringing more connections and conscious communication as your mind opens to new possibilities.  Influence and success may be in evidence as the Jupiter Pluto opposition comes into alignment.  Should any disputes arise you are encouraged to connect with a conciliatory approach, maintain your good name and take the necessary steps to right a wrong.

VIRGO:  Setting goals that reflect your personal and real desires are strongly supported.  These desires may or may not be career oriented but they do need to come straight from your heart.  From there, strategic alliances are formed that are mutually beneficial to each party’s dreams.  Influence is expanding as Jupiter connects with Pallas supercharging your ability to influence and lead.  Ironically, the more you surrender to and contemplate upon your life path the more fluid the journey.  The New Moon in your 12th house suggests that an old cycle ends as you release and connect with the new instincts and insights whispering in your ear.  Contemplation and prayer is also supported as Mercury joins the Sun in your 12th house.

LIBRA:  Going public in a more personalized way is beckoning asking for your own unique personhood to step forth and declare yourself.  The Mercury shadow period dissipates on the 4th in your public 10th house after a period of inward contemplation and fear mongering.  Eros the asteroid of passion and love is a strong influencer of connecting with that which you love and turning a blind ear towards any potential detractors (they are always there in the shadows).  The New Moon in your 11th house of Leo occurs on the 6th attracting others of like mind into your sandbox suggesting that two can build a better sandcastle than one. 

SCORPIO:  Public visibility is key as the New Moon in your 10th house occurs on the 6th.  A Uranus Vesta trine is also supporting your daily work habits and obligations in furthering your professional and life goals.  Your administration abilities are on task as they support your vision and ambitions.  Jupiter conjuncts Pallas in your 9th house of spirit, philosophy, publishing, media, legalities, travel and educational endeavors expanding your thirst for and dissemination of knowledge.  You may be hitting a success peak as the Jupiter Pluto opposition occurs this week.  If not, a re-think may be in order information gathering, contract negotiations or travel plans.

SAGITTARIUS:  Becoming aware of your own motivations and psychology is the 8th house terrain where Jupiter currently transits.  Eros also enters your 8th house of integration where the God of Love will transit for the next 4 weeks.  Passion for truth, honesty with self and psychic growing pains can result in deeper levels of maturation and psychic clearing.  When Jupiter conjuncts Pallas expanding your ability to stand outside of yourself and reassess the New Moon (on the 6th) in your 9th house also encourages you on to the next level of spiritual growth and understanding.  Financial culminations and success are possible now as is going deeper in relationship and intimacy.


CAPRICORN:  In the process of creating a new self, many changes, shifts, and transformations have happened – some to your liking and others not so much.  But, you are entering a period of increased understanding between yourself and important others.  As Mercury moves beyond his retrograde degree you are entering into a strong period of enhanced communication and understanding.  Jupiter conjuncts the reasoning powers of Pallas and opposes Pluto in your sign signifying a time of enhanced learning and gaining of wisdom in your relationship and partnership dynamics.  Real bonds can be forged now even if a hefty compromise needs to be reached.  The New Moon in your 8th house of merging resources allows plenty of room for your unique brand of creativity while maintaining a sense of freedom.


AQUARIUS:  Your need for honest equal partnership is important now.  The New Moon on the 6th occurs in your 7th house while holding a supportive trine to Uranus.  Agreements, discussions, and positive feedback from your committed partnerships and business alliances is positive and growth oriented.  Work is due for expansion too as Jupiter connects with powerful Pluto suggesting that a successful opportunity may be on offer.  Allow fear and suspicion to fade as this appears to be a genuine option opening up.  With Mercury now past his shadow point you can trust communications and discussions regarding work, projects, health and schedules.


PISCES:  Meaningful responsibilities and the desire to express your level of competence is supported this week at the New Moon in your 6th house of skills, work projects, schedules and obligations.  Being useful to others is important now as the New Moon connects with Uranus the planet of originality and inventiveness.  Opportunities arrive and urge you to show “them” what you got.   Trust that it is what’s needed and will be of value.  This pulls your burgeoning creativity into the realm of form and function as Jupiter connects with organizational Pallas and Eros, the God of Love enters your 5th house creating more passion in your self-expression and heart connections with others.

Monday, July 31st: Through August 6th the transiting North Node in Scorpio is trining Chiron in Pisces. If the N. Node speaks to "soul growth" this supportive trine encourages learning, connecting with our feeling nature and the sharing of compassion, healing and all forms of mentoring/receiving. The Moon is transiting the fixed sign of Taurus lowering our adaptability to change but encouraging the physical care of our senses and creature comforts. The Last Quarter Moon occurs at 1:44 p.m. EDT creating a sense of tension within our consciousness - what needs to change and are we open?

On TUESDAY Venus moves into trine with Pluto highlighting a day of connecting more deeply with our values and heart. Financial activity, affection and creativity provide positive outlets for sharing more intensely with others. The Moon goes VOID just before Noon EDT for the remainder of the day.

Friday, July 26th and the Mars Pluto opposition

Foggy Sun by Scott Anna

Friday, July 26th: The lazy hazy daze of summer . The Moon is VOID most of the day US time in dreamy Pisces until 5:30 p.m. EDT. When Moons are void they are not contacting the major planetary players which means many people are not as emotionally "motivated" to make decisions or commitments. It's a bit of a floating time when we can enjoy the space to "be" a bit more than "do."

Venus picks up on this as she makes an opposition to Neptune a combination that is all about love - through relationships and through the universal. A beautiful day to dream, play, entice the artist within and allow for some healthy escapism. Just don't hold folks to their word or expect clear answers, commitments and or financial savvy. Save that for later in the day when the Moon enters assertive and initiating Aries at 5:30 p.m. EDT and Venus moves into a sextile with grounding and pragmatic Saturn.

Watch your words and your actions on SATURDAY when Mars moves into opposition with Pluto. A time for powerful breakthroughs, hardwork/concentration or a steaming power struggle or two. The Sun is also in square to fearful and limiting Saturn suggesting a day (especially as we head into the evening hours in the US) when energies are low and some tempers frayed. Take it easy, take your time, be "with" whatever comes up knowing that externalizing negative feelings may not be met with understanding and compassion. This too shall pass. Be careful of yourself and others. Tend to yourself

Wednesday, July 24th: The Moon in liberation loving Aquarius continues to be VOID (making no aspects to the major planets) until 2:23 p.m. when she transits into creative and sensitive Pisces. Chiron, the healing teacher makes a trine aspect to the asteroid Psyche signaling an energy that allows us to connect more deeply with our spiritual need for compassion and the attainment of knowledge.

Psyche's transit through Scorpio suggests that our entrance into self and the soul is connected to our connection and desire for understanding regarding our sexuality and the psychology surrounding the act of intimacy and sharing.

The unconditional mothering energy of Ceres opposes Juno the asteroid representing the way in which we face issue of compatibility. Where is more nurturing needed/required in order to feel satisfied within relationship?

Monday, July 22nd 2013 - Full Moon, Venus into Virgo and the Sun ingress Leo





Monday, July 22nd: A lot of energy action today. The Full Moon (the 1st of two) occurs today at 2:17 p.m. at 0 degrees of Aquarius - a beginning to our understanding and awareness of our development regarding the future, friendships, human connection, our need for change, liberation and freedom. This Full Moon squares Saturn in Scorpio suggesting that change may require that we deal some limited or fearful thinking regarding our emotions and our sexual and financial health.

The Moon in Capricorn is VOID until "just" prior to the Full Moon - when she ingresses Aquarius at 2:08 p.m. EDT.

The Sun (of course) heads into Leo (which opposes the Moon in Aquarius - always an element in the Full Moon configuration) for the next 4 weeks encouraging us to align with our creativity. Leo seeks admiration and validation for his bravery and executive abilities.

Mars conjunct Jupiter in Cancer energizes our desire for comfort, nurturing and protection. This can lend an air of self-righteousness to our vulnerable emotions. Great for measure confidence in our educational, legal and publishing activities.

Venus shifts out of dramatic and playful Leo and heads into Virgo until August 16th. Our affectionate nature may take on a more careful, pragmatic and helpful approach. The Goddess of Love is not particularly happy in this sign as she tends to err on the side of critique and analysis.

Friday, July 19th: Saturn moves in to trine Neptune (as it did last month) helping us to ground our fantasies, dreams and creativity. The Moon continues her transit through Sagittarius enveloping us with the desire to look through our life lens in a philosophical manner.

On SATURDAY Mars moves into connection with the Saturn Neptune trine urging us to take action and integrate stability as well as ideals into our life. Mercury turns stationary direct at 2:17 p.m. EDT (at 13 degrees of Cancer) - Friday, Saturday and Sunday are called the "storm" period when we are most apt to experience confusion, delays, technical issues and miscommunication....take er easy and adjust your expectations. When Mercury returns to the degree in which it retrograded (23 degrees of Cancer) on August 4th we can move forward more confidently in all decision making and commercial activities.

The Moon ingresses pragmatic and efficient Capricorn on Saturday at 2:40 p.m. EDT for the remainder of the weekend. Sunday is the Pallas ingress into Cancer until mid-September. We may be defending our emotional and nurturing needs. This asteroid also indicates effort and intelligence while moving through the protective and emotional Cancer energy.

Wednesday, July 17th 2013 - Uranus Retrograde and the Grand Water Trine

Gulf of Mexico by Jean ~

AUGUST VIDEOSCOPES WILL BE UP BY Tuesday, July 23rd (but probably by Monday....)

Wednesday, July 17th:  Jupiter moves into trine with Neptune and Saturn today.  Are you feeling it yet?  That sense of well being regardless of any other issues you may be dealing with?  Jupiter Neptune are about faith in what cannot always be seen within our five senses.  Also, expansion in creativity, compassion and in our intuition - this is the year of connecting with what we all have - internal guidance systems that are there humming when we tune in to it.  Jupiter Saturn speaks to "good sense" that our vision of possibilities are in tune with and supported by practicality and sustainability.

Uranus turns retrograde until mid-December at 10:14 a.m. EDT.  With both Mercury and Uranus in changing motion this week we are encouraged to "be with" the flow and squelch the impulse to commit to any binding agreements or contracts.  Wait until after the weekend.  Change, revolution and the awakening process becomes more internal as we integrate the areas in which we feel stuck and adjust to the external changes that have occurred over the past several months.  Folks will be taking steps to dissolve some of the glue that has gathered and free up more personal energy.

The Moon is in Scorpio but goes VOID on THURSDAY at 7:13 a.m. until 1:55 p.m. EDT doubling down on the message to be patient.  Luna shifts into expansive Sagittarius through mid-afternoon Saturday.

Monday, July 15th:  The Moon in Libra is VOID until 10:25 a.m. EDT.  This moon seeks harmony and peace but has connected with first Pluto (Sunday night) and Uranus early in the a.m. we may struggle to find resolutions and agreements.  We are also in the Quarter Moon (when the Moon squares the Sun in Cancer) suggesting further challenges between our desire for harmony and issues surrounding parenting, security and emotional needs. The Sun is also in square to Eris adding a deeper element of conflict and the need for change as our conscious desire for the familiar rubs against our independence needs.

Uranus is stationing retrograde (exact on Wednesday) which can further upset our desire for closeness and our need for freedom.  Planets are always strongest when stationing.  But, the Water Grand Trine is connecting this week suggesting support and solutions when we commit our emotions and instincts.  Trust your insights and intentions
