There are some interesting and powerful energies in play this month which help to explain the things many of us have experienced in the past few weeks. The major players on the heavenly stage this month include: Chiron, Jupiter, Pluto, Uranus and Neptune.
The three predominant configurations formed are: a Yod (or finger of God), a kite and a star of David which will influence earthly events through mid-2014.
Intuition is strengthened by the energy this month, so pay attention because this is the time for new beginnings, especially in the realm of ideas and invention. With Jupiter in Cancer, and Uranus in slow retrograde motion until Nov 1st, watch for sudden, unexpected enlightenment in your life. You may have some startling revelations at this time.
The impact of the seven squares (Ur/Pluto) continues and will be felt this month as Jupiter begins the month in opposition to Pluto and ends August squaring Uranus. The dance of these giants is all about revolutionary activity, so watch for upheaval in your personal life as well as out in the world.
Chiron is the planet of the wounded Healer, and the opportunity for healing continues this month. The areas where we will have the most potential for growth is in our relationships, especially early in the month with Chiron being triggered by the new moon on August 6th and again at the full moon on August 20th when Jupiter will be trine to Chiron with Uranus also in play.
This has been a summer of transformation, and because of the intense influence of Uranus and Pluto, it is radical transformation. As I packed boxes today – yes there’s movement in my world again – (or perhaps “still” is a better descriptive word because I never settled in here to begin with), I was nudged to tune into an Internet-based radio show a fellow seeker hosts. I found myself listening to her most recent call-in show, and it soon became apparent what the theme for the time was: movement.
All, and I mean all, of the questions were about movement, either in a job situation or a location or both. Suddenly, I didn’t feel so off-track any more. Thanks, Shelly, for the message! So, if you are reading this and you are feeling this sort of energy too, knowing this is happening to others should make you feel better about your situation.
The energies in the heavens are making the shape of a kite at this time, and if we can remember that this formation is bringing the opportunity for us to shift and sort and shake things around until there’s a more even distribution of energy (and personally I think that is going on on a global scale, at least with the beings working on behalf of the Light) than when we started, we will move through it with more ease and grace.
There are some influences that could indicate a need to be a bit more mindful with our resources now. Exercise some diligence as you manage your financial affairs during the balance of the summer, and I feel into the fall as well.
Remember to remain flexible. Everything, and I mean everything, is subject to change, and with what is happening in the heavens, that change can be sudden and unexpected. (Don’t I know that one!)
Listen to your intuition and stay grounded. Focus on the task at hand, and try not to over think things. Break it down to the basics, and work from that place one thing at a time.
And remember to always have your Plan B (and maybe even Plan C) ready to go if something happens to Plan A. Know that one, too!
If ever there was a time for us to master the art of detachment, I would say this is it. Seems the Universe doesn’t want us to fall too in love with any one way of getting the job done. Seems the moment we do is when things begin to change again.
As we roll with increasing velocity towards the end of the year (it will be here before we know it, I don’t feel there will be much fall for us in 2013), we need to remember to do the most important thing of all: breathe.
So. Take a breath. Now exhale. See? Bet you feel better already!
There is a new post up at IntheCompanyofAngels today as well. Enjoy.
