The Week of July 8-14, 2019
While this week doesn’t include an eclipse or a planetary sign change, we still have plenty of action taking place in the heavens above – Mercury and Mars come together, the Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn, the South Node and Pluto, and the Moon beginning the week in Libra, challenges the Cancer and Capricorn planets. Okay, so it’s going to be an energetic week!
Let’s break it down:
Monday, July 8, 2019
Today is a great day to express yourself creatively and with your special uniqueness as Venus, in a sextile to Uranus, stimulates our need for beauty and excitement.
Mercury Rx and Mars also meet up today in Leo and where there is unexpressed frustration, we might see verbal battles erupt. The best way to work through this is to recognize that your frustration is your own and isn’t meant to be “vomited” outward onto others. We all know that everyone isn’t in the “know” like we are so it is possible to be on the receiving end of someone else’s frustration.
The extraordinary potential of this though, is that we can finally voice to ourselves what we have dared not say! For instance, “I’m tired of this job and I’m going to finally do what I want to do.” or “I’m going to start treating myself better and follow my heart’s desires.” So many ways in which we can wake up now to what is “right” for us. We will have another chance later this Summer when Mars and Mercury meet up again in Virgo.
The Moon in Libra is also in a good relationship with Mars and Mercury, so there really is a high side to all this verbal energy – whether it is clearing the air or stating something profound. Just make sure that you are being responsible with your words.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy today: 2-Devoting Accepting two opposite perspectives within a community, family or nation without getting stuck in inappropriate loyalties.
Human Design Astrology: The Sun moves into Gate 53-Starting Things while the Earth moves into Gate 54-Ambition. Both of these gates are on the Root center, which is the center for Stress, Endurance, and Impulse energy. The impulse energy for the week is about new beginnings and how they are connected to a goal, desire or ambition.
If you really want to dig deeper, then look at the Gene Keys 53 and 54, where Superabundance & Ascension are the highest states of these two gates.
Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Another energetic day is on tap as the Sun opposes Saturn today (from Cancer to Capricorn) while the Moon in Libra challenges the Sun, Saturn and Pluto.
We are familiar with the Sun square Moon as this is our “Crisis of Action.” Having come through the new moon window last week, we are now faced with a potential block to our new beginning. We have to consciously choose what path to follow next.
With the Sun opposing Saturn, we are asked to stand in our authority and live from our true authenticity. We can also experience low energy as the weight of duty and responsibility may just feel burdensome to us right now. Don’t worry as this soon will pass. Maybe take a break today and so something fun or something that doesn’t require a lot of energy.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 3-Illuminating. Today we are inspired to create new things or to think in new ways. This is also a day to shine a light into the dark spaces. Maybe what heaviness we feel from the Sun-Saturn opposition is really about how we are aligned to the light or not?
Wednesday, July 10, 2019
While we slept, the Moon moved out of Libra and into Scorpio and the Sun moved into a trine with Neptune. We are experiencing a bump up in the spiritual, psychic and intuitive energies today. Don’t be surprised if you were having weird dreams, or if you feel suddenly tapped into Universal Consciousness. Follow your inner knowing today.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 4-Choosing. Focus on the foundations in your world today. Build or rebuild in ways that are sustainable and strengthen. The energy today is also good for healing, nurturing and settling differences.
Thursday, July 11, 2019
Today could be an interesting day as Mars (planet of conflict and confrontation) squares (or challenges) Uranus, planet of surprises, shocks and awakening. Adding to that is the Moon in Scorpio, a sign ruled by both Mars and Pluto, and what you get is the potential for erratic behavior and rebelliousness. Best to channel your energy in ways that are positive and uplifting, rather than to give into the urges of craziness and then have to face the piper tomorrow. Exercise or physical activity is a great way to let off some steam. Just be careful that you don’t overdo anything.
This could also be a highly creative day. Harness the energy to bust through any places where you have been stuck. But watch for destructiveness vs. constructiveness.
The potential also exists today for escalations in the world outside of us. Expect rebellion and revolution – in both it’s negative and potentially positive expressions. Grandstanding, narcissism, arrogance and lack of humility could also exacerbate tensions already apparent in the world around us.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 5-Exploring. Today is a day for surprises and unexpected things to occur that give us opportunities to change old patterns. This is a great day for exploring, but watch for being rigid or too critical.
Human Design Today: Venus, planet of our relationships, values and finances moves into the Gate 39-Provocation. Provocation serves a purpose – to wake us up! Unfortunately we sometimes perceive these energies as an assault or affront to our personal lives. Provocation is meant to move us from a “stuck” position to one of Freedom, as evidenced in the opposing Gate 55- which resonates to Freedom in the Gift and the Siddhic states.
Friday, July 12, 2019
We move into the end of the week with the Moon moving into Sagittarius, where adventure, exploration and seeking knowledge is important to us. Today there is smooth energy between the Moon and Mercury and Mars. Today comes as a relief to some of the more chaotic days earlier in the week.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 6-Healing. Today is a great day for adventure and movement on all levels. Engage in healing efforts – maybe traveling to the beach or other outdoor area to refresh yourself. Watch for accepting too many responsibilities OR avoiding responsibilities.
Saturday, July 13, 2019
The Moon in Sagittarius conjuncts Jupiter today making it a feel great kind of day! About the only thing we have to be aware of is not overdoing anything. Too much of anything is not a good thing, so keep everything proportional and sustainable. The Moon is also square Neptune today triggering some “fogginess” in our thinking and calculating. Consequently, this is not the best day to make big decisions. So instead, have fun, play and save big decisions for another day!
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 7-Seeing. While today is not a good day to make decisions, our creative energies are working well! New ideas abound today. Just don’t try to take action on all of your ideas!
Human Design Today: The Sun moves into the Gate 62- Planning and the Earth into Gate 61-The Mystery. The week ahead is one to be greeted with a Spirit of awe and wonder rather than anxiety and obsession with planning and details. Enjoy the ride!
Sunday, July 14, 2019
The Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn today creating the potential for power struggles born of jealousy and manipulation in yourself or in others. Recognize these shadow energies within yourself before taking action in ways that are harmful. Use the Sun’s fire energy to transmute the shadow and leave you empowered. Not everyone in the outer world is so inclined to use these energies for the good however, so we may see expressions of the negative. Instead of empowerment, we may see ways in which disempowerment and dominance play out.
Interestingly this is a prelude to the Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on Tuesday where the Moon will be in conjunction to Pluto. Emotions will be high, and reactive tendencies hold sway rather than common sense. Try to stay above the fray and not get too serious about world events.
Pleiadian-Earth Energy: 8-Intuiting. Connecting, communication and abundance are ours. All we have to do is to tap into and recognize when it is right in front of us. Reacting to the outer world is one of the shadows of the day.
Human Design today: Mars moves into the Gate 33-Storyteller. While Mars represents action and forward movement in Astrology, in Human Design it more represents our maturing process. Maturing is related to our remembering the truth of who we are in this incarnation. According to Richard Rudd in the Gene Keys, “There is no situation on Earth that cannot be used as a means to raise your frequency and open your heart to your inner Divinity.” We are being moved to tell a new story, and it’s one of our remembering our truth and creating continued disinformation.
So, while this isn’t necessarily a difficult week, there are some difficult transits, likely designed to prepare us for next week’s Lunar Eclipse. Let go of what doesn’t serve you – the stories, the old emotions, grudges etc., and next week will be easy breezy!
