“The Only Way Out is Through…” -Robert Frost
In the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna sits down in the middle of the battle field to have a discuss with Krishna about what to do; fight, flee, give-up, hide, or escape. In their spiritual dialog of life, they arrive at the same wisdom of Robert Frost, “The only way out is through.” This is the energy for the Aquarius Full Moon on Mon, Aug 3– and really for the next 4 months and 4 years. We are being initiated into a once in a millennia shift. The old patriarchal ways have started to crumble. It’s like watching in slow motion as the wounded – and dangerous – giant stumbles back and forth, blindly swing it’s club at anything that moves. This can be felt by all of the outer Transpersonal Planets in Retrograde now, and 3 of the major players (Jupiter/Saturn/Pluto) are in Capricorn- the sign of the dying patriarchy.
This Full Moon in Aquarius is squared by Uranus in the sign of Taurus. Uranus is the energy of the revolution, the revelation, and evolution of the social network. Uranus is also the Great Awakener who’s job is to bring more of our personal unconscious into the material world. The personal unconscious is the 95% of the iceberg that sits below the waterline- or another way to name it is the SOUL. Uranus awakens the Soul into our consciousness. However, how this is done depends upon our Karma and how resistant- or flowing- we are with the awakening energy. If our karma and awareness are willing, then it is Revelation energy and “Ah-ha!”. If our karma is resistant, then it can be traumatic, explosive, and a lightening strike. Our Aquarius Full moon is reverberating with these energies and possibilities.
Most of the energies following in the coming 2 weeks are dominated and influenced by the Personal Planets of Mercury, Mars, Venus, The Moon and Sun. So, it will be felt very personally.
Mars is now in its shadow period from July 25 to Sep 9. Everything it does will be repeated 3 times when it retrogrades and then goes direct again. Dejevu as it threads the same energies thrice. This includes 3 squares with Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. First in August. Second in October and third in December. This is our Will Power, I am-ness, Masculine Self, and initiate energy going into passes with the Truth & Faith (Jupiter), The Collective Unconscious & Hidden Secrets (Pluto) and then Karma & Maturity (Saturn).
Mercury enters Leo form Aug 4 – 20 and will be riding with the Sun- Our communicator/thinker/nervous system with our Heart and Creativity. Venus will also change signs from Gemini into Cancer on Aug 7 until Sep 6. Venus is much happier in Cancer where she can feel instead of think. The heart and emotions can now evaluate what the mind and intellect have looked at for the past few months.
Mercury will then Trine Chiron (The Wound & The Master Teacher) on Aug 9- a harmonious time to learn from our wounds, mistakes, traumas, and troubles. They can become medicine and learning for ourselves and we can help teach others in right way. Then be aware though the next day on Aug 10 as Mercury squares Uncle Uranus- sudden, unexpected changes in energy.
Tue, Aug 11 is the Taurus 1/2 moon that also trines Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn. We are half way through the cycle and get a supportive boost form the grand council to reassure and ground us down a little more. Afterwards, Mars has it’s first of three squares to Pluto on Aug 13.
Uranus will go retrograde from Aug 15 until Jan 14. The Great Awakener is going in for a deep dive into each of our personal unconscious selves to stimulate growth and blossom us into our potential. Go slow, its a retrograde and we have 5 months of Soul awakening.
Finally, Mercury will conjoin the Sun, and Mars will conjoin his sister Eris. Both of these power house conjunctions will be trining each other. Our warrior masculine and feminine energies will be supported by our Hearts & Minds on Aug 16 & 17. This is a powerful time to take action and start on something that you have been working on, thinking about, feeling, and putting your love towards. Just do it and put it into motion. Keep moving forward and remember Robert Frost, “The Only Way Out is Through…”
