This week starts off with today’s retrograde Uranus. It is an annual event but it has an extra oomph given Venus turned retrograde yesterday. Change is in the air based no doubt on what we really value. Where we are inauthentic will feel off and difficult to keep going. But living a more authentic life takes courage. Venus will talk to us forfive weeks and Uranus will push on us for five months.
We continue the 1st Quarter moon that began on Friday. All the seeds we planted on Cancer New Moon need to be stoked and tended on the 1st Quarter. If you started something then now follow up. Even if you didn’t do anything specific on New Moon there still needs to be a follow up. For example maybe you happened to have met with friends during the Cancer New Moon and when you left them you really felt appreciated. On 1st Quarter you can make an effort to expand on that feeling of appreciation, maybe you set up another meeting with someone you miss, or maybe you make an effort to deepen your relationship with your spouse or maybe you call up someone whom you really appreciate. It is the energy that was planted on New Moon is where you follow up. And of course if something lame and annoying came up on New Moon, you take the 1st Quarter Moon to remedy it.
You have all day Sunday and most of Monday to follow up on the seeds. Then in the evening we move into Gibbous Phase.
We refine our information. We pick and choose, we discriminate, and we organize to be ‘Virgo’ like. We sort through details. Have we missed something? How are we sifting through the information? Go back and make sure something hasn’t been neglected. Refine our actions.
What have you missed about being optimistic? What have you missed about shrugging stuff off? How are you neglecting the value of travel? How are you neglecting being philosophical? How are you missing the great outdoors? How are you missing the value of a good laugh?
Then on Friday, July 31, we move into Aquarius Full Moon.
That post will follow.
In the meantime make the most of your week!
