Well if you've been blocked, stuck, cranky, and fussy - welcome to Mars in Scorpio. Mars is settling into its new home, getting used to movement again, hitting walls, slowing down, getting up, hitting aspects to other planets....in other words getting its feet wet with our new energy dynamic and stumbling a bit. It's more progress than being in Libra has been all these months, but still its frustrating because the flow is not all there yet. Two steps forward, one step back is still progress. Be grateful some walls are coming down, the true flow will come by mid-September when it moves into Sagittarius, when we can expect smooth energy sailing and much progress.
Mercury in harmony with Jupiter gives us lots of ideas for the next two weeks. Take notes, some of them will be awesome. Start a business, a relationship, write a book, start a family. It's abundance and clear thinking time. Just don't expect full speed ahead with Mars issues, but you will still make progress.
August 8th Mercury is squaring Saturn - don't let negative thinking or low self esteem keep you down. It will pass so don't get caught up in it. Watch some comedies and catch up on your sleep and you'll emerged refreshed.
August 10th is a full moon in Aquarius, the humanitarian sign. Expect some good news when this Moon aspects Uranus in a good way. Expect surprising news, information and experiences.
Uranus is also making an adjustment to Saturn now. Quirky, original Uranus meets down to earth Saturn - manifest amazing ideas, ideals....create your own religion or philosophy, invent a new technology tool and get the prototype done, invent a cure for a disease....the sky is the limit.
So this is a week for ideas, for delving deeply into your spiritual beliefs and adjusting them accordingly, for starting something new, and getting your ideas into concrete form.
Lately I have been feeling very out of sync, like one foot in this world, one in the next and its a bit disorienting. I have fallen down the rabbit hole and have come face to face with total madness from our world "leaders" as well. It feels like politicians are more insane than ever and no one is calling them on their outrageousness.
And on some level I feel this is a good thing....they are so used to being insane that they have stepped so far over the line they don't even seem to get it. The jig is up, the people have had it, groups are merging and organizing and pushing back says Jim Hightower.
I think this semi out of body experience I am having in periodic moments is just the shift of energy from how it is to how it will be. I just feel like my brain can't absorb one more day of the crazies. I am detached one minute, immersed the next. Everyone I know is struggling with big stuff now, but its forcing soul searching and asking ourselves what really matters. So again, I feel we are on the precipice of "something" and this is the death knell of the madness. Up is down and down is up for sure now.
It is time to turn our hearts to overflowing compassion for everyone else. We are a village, albeit a 7.5 Billion one. Most of us are pretty good at heart I still believe, but lots of us are lost. It is our duty as people of conscience to pray/meditate/envision a new world where good is the majority and crooks are once again the minority. The shift is coming, and we need to take an active part in that change. So everytime the world/news/life gets you down, take just a moment to envision the world as a good place where fairness, honesty and kindness thrive, where everyone has food and shelter, and where crazy politicians are laughed off the podium.
Hang in there. Hey Paul McCartney August 14th at Candlestick....love IS the answer
