The Cosmos is the reflection of our Spiritual Body, and as our consciousness expands, so does our solar system. Did you know that our solar system has tripled in size in the past 12 years? In this latest teleconference Stephanie Azaria discusses Read more →
Merrily’s astrological Weekly Weather for July 28 – August 3, 2014
All times are written for E.D.T.
Monday the 28th
We start this week with a powerful bridge (opposition) that forms at 2:36 AM between Venus in Cancer and Pluto in Capricorn. There can be a bit of a balancing act needed as relationships, family connections and questions of personal power come into play. Why not use this energy to raise your own and go for empowering your higher heart with a good dose of self-love. Being Self-Centered (in the true sense of knowing your Self… not the Ego) is actually a very healthy way to empower others; when your vibration resonates higher, it supports others to shine as well. Be aware that passion and fear are up for examination and choose to be the observer, rather than the engager.
The Moon in Leo can help us to find clarity concerning issues that need clearing from the Venus/Pluto reveal. Remember Leo is all about inner gratitude and the creative juices that flow from a happy heart. Self-care will serve you well at this time. The Moon enters Virgo at 11:37 PM providing a grounded energy that we can use to implement some of the big plans that have emerged from a grandiose New Moon.
Tuesday to 29th
The Virgo Moon leads us out in the morning with some strong mental focus and the ability to get that “to do list” handled in a practical, efficient fashion. Use the morning to get things done before the Moon opposes Neptune at 1:48 PM. This bridge between the Moon and Neptune could leave us feeling a bit unfocused with a case of what I call blurry brain. I usually just want to day dream when this happens.
It’s good for inspiration and creative endeavors that can lead to fantasy filled dreams tonight. This is intensified as just after midnight, the Sun and Neptune come together and we can dive deeper into uncharted creative waters. Meditation and a cup of tea sound just about right.
Wednesday the 30th
Take it easy today and enjoy the mild cosmic influences that can make this “Hump Day” feel pretty good. We can still notice the energy of the Sun/Neptune connection that bathed our sleep time with bold colors and loving dreams as we start this day. With the Moon still in Virgo, making harmonious connections to Venus and Saturn, we can apply some practicality to our vision and find support in our surrounding environment that feels good. Be of service without self-sacrifice and rest up, for tomorrow is a packed day.
Thursday the 31st
The morning starts off on good footing with a Moon/Mercury sextile that sets the tone for a flow of communications that open doors and provide solutions. The Moon leaves earthy Virgo and enters peace keeping Libra around lunch time. When the Moon is in Libra, we tend to look for what is fair, what feels balanced, weighing both sides of the equation; our afternoon is mostly about that.
Mercury (the intellect and communicator) leaves Cancer and dances into Leo around supper time and messages take on a decidedly different flair. Bold color, gregariousness, emanating inner light, gratitude and celebration are all qualities of Leo that have come to the foreground, special delivery of the New Moon we just had that joined Jupiter in Leo. Having Mercury in the same sign) (ruled by the Sun, fires up our creative drives as we look to how we can express ourselves more authentically. Leo is bold and has great courage, but sometimes it needs tempering with a mild dose of humility. We may see some over the top “look at me” examples of Leo going to the extreme, but we could just as well observe powerful expressions of generosity and hearts jumping for joy.
To top of the night, the Libra Moon sextiles Jupiter in Leo and another bottle of enthusiasm is uncorked and bubbles over the top, if you let it. Around Midnight Venus and Uranus square off, so relationships may experience unexpected surprises and as long as we remain open to changes, it can be exciting and pleasurable. At this point, everything works better when we choose to give up resistance and go with the flow. Tomorrow has some harmonizing, healing energy that will be helpful!
Friday August 1st
Here we are at the 1st day of August, Wow, it seems like that came really fast (compliments of the Chinese year of the Metal Horse)! Just around sunrise, Venus (still in Cancer) and Saturn in Scorpio form a supportive trine and our day starts out with good footing and we manifest happy vibes with family and home.
Shortly after, Venus will trine Chiron and if we have been needing to heal our heart… now is a perfect time to attend to that. The healing is an inside job and if we can allow the release to happen, it can be magical. Keeping the past alive sometimes keeps a better future from showing up. Don’t let a challenging hook up between the Moon and Pluto throw you off course and ensnare you in some kind of power struggle! Stay in your own space and own your feelings.
Around dinner time Mars (Scorpio) will square Jupiter (Leo) and this is a great stepping stone for getting our motivation going. We need to watch out for overdoing and taking things to an extreme that could be harmful. This is not the time for hasty decisions and with the Moon in Libra we may find it hard to make a choice. However, this Leo energy is power packed with the light of the Sun and we can ride this solar energy to brand new horizons!
Saturday the 2nd
We start this day with a VOC (void of course) Libra Moon and she makes NO aspects at all! So I say it’s a morning for us to find rest and appreciate the beauty surrounding us and just take it easy as we appreciate all that we love in this life! Find your inner peace in a way that works for you.
The energy builds to an awesome Mercury/Jupiter Leo conjunction midafternoon and enthusiasm is over flowing yet again. Share your ideas and take time to notice all we have to be grateful for… let your mental creativity burn full force and see what comes from it. If you needed to sell someone on an idea, this is the day for it! Just be aware that Mercury is headed for a square to Mars around 9:00 tonight and someone may want to engage in a sparring match of some sorts to gain control… don’t join them!
With Mars in Scorpio, some people may take it to lower ground and focus on battle or revenge… but many of us will be taking it to the higher ground of manifesting positive transformation through action. Motivation for transformation and growth will take you to a good place so go for that.
The Moon enters the deep waters of Scorpio around Midnight tomorrow and it’s time to examine our emotional well-being and check in with our own inner authority.
Sunday the 3rd
This is one of those days where I would say, set your intention and find your center before you get rolling out of the bed. The Scorpio Moon is very active today and we are likely to run the gambit of emotional responses unless we make a concerted effort to center ourselves so we can be the observer, looking at the ever shifting feelings from a truly empowered place. Just imagine standing on the beach at the water’s edge and notice how it all comes in and goes out… well that’s how this day is and much of it is easy and much of it is challenging… it’s a big mix!
This is a day that can be very transformative and enlightening. The challenge will be to not get ensnared in a net of fear, self-doubt or negativity. We need to remember we are always at choice and we can choose wisely with conscious awareness and feel gratified as a result.
