July 7-13, 2024

This is a rather exciting week that promises some newfound zest and eagerness to make significant headway toward our dreams and aspirations. As we dance and relish this sense of renewal, we must prepare for the inevitable wave of reality checks and balances. Is our verve to vervy? Do we need to tone things down a notch or two? These are natural processes that help us up the long ladder of life. Eventually, the refinement of our giddy hopes leads to the refinement of our relationships and how valuable they are to the process of our progress. We are building courage, clearing our hearts and minds, and realizing the importance of discernment.

Moon conjunct Mercury in Leo

Moon in Leo sextile Jupiter in Gemini

 

Ideally there is an exciting and playful flair to the day, sparking an interest to go into town and see everyone, be seen by everyone, hear some music, see a show, or put on a show. The days that stretch across our lives are often painful, exhausting, or aggravating, but sometimes we are gifted fun and frivolous days that shake all the residue out from our emotional bodies. What can we do today that makes us laugh, dance, sing, and ultimately find joy, exhilaration, and inspiration? This can be an enormously creative day that sparks spontaneous inspiration and awakenings, so it would be best to sculpt it in a way that allows a liberal dose of open ends.

 

All of these fun things are possible, but there is a chance we could find ourselves in an ego duel with someone. Who is better or smarter or more favored can play out in some strange way that annoys or perturbs us, so harnessing our humility and kindness is quite imperative if we want to avoid any eye rolling or blood boiling disturbances in the otherwise frisky force of the day. All in all, we are bound to have a handful of very jovial conversations that might teach us some really cool stuff we were not anticipating learning.

Our love for others and the caring support we give and receive from them is in the spotlight today, perhaps instilling upon us a bit of a desire to give more than we have before to them. In this way we are noticing how we relate to other people and even ourselves. Maybe we would like to socialize more, make new friends, or even comfort others by volunteering at a local shelter, food bank, soup kitchen, or elderly home. We are feeling very nurturing today in a way that inspires compassion and doing good for the world.

 

Yesterday’s excitability is extending into today, too. We are likely finding our zest for life returning or blossoming in a way that speaks to the path we wish to follow. It is often difficult to feel like we are truly on the path we want to be on, but sometimes we stumble upon serendipitous experiences that remind us which direction we are going and that we are exactly where we should be along that trajectory. These open and flowing harmonies should be relished while they pass through us, because the evening is likely to sing a few discordant notes through the air around us. We might need to face the stubbornness we are more or less prone to, and this can cause some friction in relationships if we are not mindful enough.

Hopefully last night was not too tense or frustrating, because this morning could bring a little more of the same. If we are in a relationship, our egos could feel an unconscious need to battle it out for some reason, perhaps regarding our finances, our home, or one of us being too much of a stick in the mud. Thus we may be better off focusing on a task independently that helps us work out these issues more internally and unconsciously, hopefully bringing us into greater awareness of them through that process.

 

Carrying yesterday’s recognition of our place on our path into today, we are very likely noticing that what we have done and where we have been has purposefully led us to where we are now. The work that sits on the table in front of us is exactly the work that will carry us into the fortune of our future. Stepping back far away from everything to gaze upon where we stand on the entire course of our life can show us how valuable all we have gone through has been for us. Hopefully we can glean some powerful insights that will help us make the best decisions about where we turn and go from here. Eyes and minds open!

Moon in Virgo square Jupiter in Gemini

Sun in Cancer trine Saturn in Pisces

 

The visionary insights we hopefully gleaned over the past few days are in need of facing some scrutiny for the finer details today. What we imagined may need to be tested against the backdrop of reality and feasibility if we are to see any of those dreams through to fruition. Does it serve humanity well? Will it enrich our lives and the lives of those we encounter along the way? Are any of our ideas too far-fetched? Working through our hopes and dreams with a fine-toothed comb can smooth out any incongruities or unnecessaries that no longer belong in our lives.

 

This is sure to bring us into closer alignment with the tasks we need to accomplish and holding fast to our inner truth. What we have done before may not be nurturing us anymore, so weeding out those faults and drawing more stark boundary lines for ourselves is of the essence today. It is definitely an ideal day to start painting the masterpiece we have been dreaming of, because there is an opening for us to impart that vision upon the canvas of our future.

Some finalizations are being sorted out today, and they are primarily homing in on ideal refinements for optimum life management. Do we know how to handle the unexpected, and usually unwanted, wrenches the universe throws at us? Of course we all know life is sometimes harmonious, peaceful, and serene, while other times we cannot catch a break and so much seems to be out of our hands and challenging. We are likely to feel the see-saw of these patterns today, but hopefully we also notice how well equipped we have become at handling these tidal shifts that ebb and flow day in and day out.

 

Stubborn and perhaps fearful of making changes, our wisdom does not always come into play to allow us to make the best decisions. It can seem like we are waiting for a sign or just the right moment to enact those shifts, but deep inside we tell ourselves we are not ready. We might be afraid that any changes will disrupt a level of contentment we have become accustomed to, even if that feeling of contentment is not fully satisfied. But with Venus ingressing Leo today, we might begin to feel a certain giddiness and newfound thrill for what could happen if we decide to change at least a few things about our lives.

 

When planets aspect one another at the 29th degree, there is often a feeling of culminations, ultimatums, and a universe-enforced need to make up our minds about something. Today this happens in the love and pleasure-seeking arena of our lives, as well as perhaps our deep connection to the divine and how that influences our relationship to this world we live in and the people, places, animals, and items therein. Some profound clarity is possible if we remain open to new beginnings and overcoming stagnant attitudes we have hung on to out of fear for however long.

The newly vivified hope for what lies ahead of us must also contend with the shadows and secrets we have buried inside. Breaking free from these troubles is not for the faint of heart, nor for anyone lacking courage and bravery. Sometimes in order to liberate ourselves from our fears and anxieties we need to come clean with our wrong-doings, our faults, and our prejudices. Though this can threaten others’ perspective of us and the relationships we have with them, it will ultimately allow us to be more openly and authentically ourselves, thereby helping others know who we sincerely are, too. The longer we wait, the less time we have to evolve and awaken.

 

Harkening back to the past may impose some unwanted reflections today, even if they are necessary and helpful. And while they may not seem necessary or helpful, we should always take some time to do this so we continue to develop a clearer picture of where and who we have been. This should also teach us that what may have seemed like mistakes were merely lessons learned, and that creating a more positive perspective of who we have been helps us create a more positive attitude of who we are now and who we are becoming.

How do we know what others think of us? How do we feel about other people? Do we feel superior to certain people but inferior to others? This theme of how people feel about others, and in particular what level of superiority, is cast across the fields of today. It should be no surprise that everyone judges others against themselves nearly every day. Some may be much more prone to it than others, but we all end up doing so to some degree. This creates an unconscious push-pull in our psyches that often plays out aggressively, antagonistically, or by belittling ourselves or others. Keeping a close watch on our hearts and minds to avoid such traps will help show us where we need improvement in this realm.

 

Along these lines, today acts as a sort of test to see if we are learning how to perceive the difference between judging and discerning. One affects our ego in a way that inflates or deflates our self-esteem, and the other affects our ego in a way that helps us make healthy and informed decisions for the sole purpose of evolving and becoming more enlightened human beings. It might not be a bad idea to look up the definition of these two words to help us on our way today.

 

How do our relationships affect our progress toward developing the mastery we seek in the field of study or work we do? Is a personal relationship getting in the way of this progress? Or is that relationship an integral part of our progress? What relationships help us on our way and which ones do not? This can be a painfully difficult assessment to make, but perhaps we can discern how our relationships are helping us in different ways, even if they seem to impede our advancement toward certain goals. Maybe they are teaching us other lessons that will prove invaluable down the road a taste. Let’s work on discerning more than judging! We are all just working it out.

 

Whether or not we realize it, what we need is not always what we want. But when what we need becomes what we want, there can be tremendous forward motion in the development of our ego and emotional maturity. Such evolution helps us arrive much sooner to the summits of the goals we set for ourselves along the way. If we remain mindful of how to be proud, how to refine that pride, and how to relate with ample discernment, humility, and compassion, we are sure to grow into much happier, loveable, and satisfied individuals. May we keep working out all our kinks, healing all our bruises, and finding the courage to authenticate ourselves for the sake of sincerity and liberation!
