Cosmic Calendar: The Latest
SUN JULY 27 Seek stability as a couple of well-known celestial bodies – Mercury and Venus – turn into temporary mischief-makers. Yesterday’s Leo New Moon – magnified by the presence of regal Jupiter – was a clarion call for creativity across the board. What you don’t want to do is put too much attention on your own needs and desires since that is the shadow side of the true magnanimity that can be expressed when the Sun and Jupiter are working together along lines of love and wisdom to share with your fellow travelers inhabiting the Earth. The two key planets related to thoughts (Mercury) and feelings (Venus) are going to test your stamina today as Mercury forms a frictional, 135-degree tie with sometimes confusing Neptune (4:06PM) while Venus makes its annual opposition with underworld-guardian Pluto (11:40PM). Be extra kind and respectful to dear ones on the ropes. Serenading a significant other with romantic overtures may not go over that well with often-secretive and manipulative Pluto on the other side of the Earth from friendly, thoughtful Venus. It also doesn’t help that the Moon in Leo squares off with Saturn in Scorpio (5:39PM) while this 90-degree aspect also begins a long void-of-course lunar cycle that lasts nearly 27 hours until 8:38PM tomorrow. Your lone ace in the hole arrives shortly before the void lunar cycle begins as the Moon trines Uranus in fire signs (5:15PM). Utilize this consciousness-raising 120-degree configuration for all it’s worth as breakthroughs of the higher mind can often happen in a flash when Uranus acts out its Promethean role as cosmic fire bringer to humanity.
MON JULY 28 Do your best to go with the cosmic flow while the Moon meanders in void mode in fixed, powerful Leo. Remember the usual rule of thumb regarding the lunar orb being void-of-course – that it is okay to finish old business with a flourish, but don’t launch bold, new initiatives. If you were looking to get going with alacrity concerning important business matters today, think again. Not only is the Moon out-of-sorts for down-to-earth practical issues, but yesterday’s Mercury-Neptune and Venus-Pluto connections are still kicking up dust regarding investments, financial markets, and potentially vital communications. There are two minor alignments today that could give you some encouragement as Mercury forms a subtle, 30-degree link with Juno (1:24PM) while Venus makes an inspirational, 72-degree liaison with Pallas (6:52PM). Once the Moon leaves its void position in late-Leo by entering adaptable, multi-faceted Virgo (8:38PM), you can tune into the Venus-Pallas interaction and utilize it to solve problems and set up strategy sessions that will enhance your artistic ingenuity and business acumen. Your ability to unravel enigmas, understand abstruse subjects, and pursue key research projects will be enhanced overnight – thanks to Mercury forming a supportive, 60-degree link to Pallas (reaching exactitude at 2:09AM on Tuesday).
TUE JULY 29 As this day begins and the last 72 hours of July 2014 are etched into the record books, Mercury – which started the month motionless in its switch from retrograde to direct – now is traveling at approximately 2 degrees per day. The Messenger of the Gods planet will keep up this speedy movement for around another two weeks. The faster Mercury travels – relative to the Earth’s vantage point – the quicker human senses and response times to a wide variety of stimuli may become. In addition, right now Mercury makes a constructive, 60-degree rapport with Pallas (2:09AM) – reinforcing problem-solving skills across the board. Interest in martial arts programs and exercise regimes is on the rise – thanks to a 135-degree contact between Mars and Chiron (5:36PM). Learn more about the stock, bond, currency, commodity and real-estate markets to enhance your investment planning during a fairly rare and inspirational, 72-degree link between Vesta in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn (6:52PM). Sewing, knitting, repairing equipment, weeding, clean-up campaigns, arts, crafts and hobbies capture you via their gravitational pull with the Moon energizing efficiency-oriented Virgo. Some sensible souls like to simplify their lives under this multi-talented sixth sign of the zodiac. However, illusions and fantasies can temporarily trump reality later on when the Sun forms an off-kilter, 150-degree link-up with Neptune (9:45PM). It is wise to avoid signings, legal agreements, and long-term commitments in the several hours leading up to this celestial formation and for several hours afterwards
