This week has its stresses. The first quarter moon begins on Sunday July 30. Seeds planted on new moon will need follow up actions. Is it a follow up phone call? Is it a follow up email? Is it looking at your To-Do list that sits in your heart? Are you confused what that even means? If yes, go read NEW MOON then consider some actions you can take that support your love & passion & fun & bravery.
On July 31st Venus moves out of light and frilly Gemini into tender Cancer. Love moves into a more moody arena. Harsh realities seem—harsh. Take note that Cancer the crab will pull into its shell when it doesn’t like what is going on. The shell is very protective and yes, sometimes it is better to just pull it all in than get into it with someone.
On August 2 Uranus turns retrograde. See separate post.
Nothing like the planet of chaos to turn around because he forgot some place he needed to create a little turmoil.
August 3 the moon moves into Gibbous phase with emphasis on our Capricorn nature. Our inner CEO will come out and save the day.
Besides the pressure to ‘do something’ that first quarter moon shakes out of us and the disruption by Uranus in the middle of the week, the one aspect that is probably front and center and causing the most noise is Jupiter square Pluto on Friday August 4th. We have been here before –twice and now we have the final push. See separate post.
For those of you on vacation sitting on a beach somewhere with your phone next to you, a book on your lap and a nice cold beverage next to you---I am jealous. It is possible you may not see or feel some of the drama in store for the rest of us. Although that phone of yours may start to vibrate as friends and family send you texts and call because they just need to “vent.” In that case---pour a larger drink.
To the rest of us; we find our strength through our heart and by trusting that there is something greater than us out there making sure we are on the straight and narrow.
First Quarter Moon
July 30, 2017
First quarter: We do more actions based on the information that we just received. Or we feel our instincts guide us on something. We pursue again. We make another call or we see someone. We mail something. We stir the pot again. This can be a time when we realize that the goals we planted on New need more action from us, perhaps actions that involve breaking away. Are there people who say they have our best interest in heart but fear us growing away from them? Maybe we need to get help from others not the usual suspects. Some independence may need to be exerted.
Focus on: How are your loans? How are your taxes? How are your shared resources? How is your sex life? How are you making moves that impact those areas of your life? What moves are you making that speak of death and rebirth? How are you making moves that access power or empowerment? What is your controlling nature focused on? Is it helpful?

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 are you neglecting that speaks to your inner CEO? Where are you a professional and have you been missing something about that part of your nature? What are you neglecting that speaks to your industrial nature? How are you neglecting the ability to Move UP the ladder? Is there an inner beef? How have you moved through insecurities? Is there more work to do?
