Weekly Dimensional Astrology

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

MondayToday 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 TuesdayCapricorn) 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

Hump DayWhile 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) squaresThankful Thursday (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 

FridayWe 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!  AboutSaturday meme 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!  

Blessings,

What’s Up in the Stars This Week?

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy

Astrology for the Week of March 24-31, 2019

I hope everyone had a spectacular Spring or Fall Equinox and enjoyed the shifting energies of last week.  If you tuned into the spirit and quality of the time we just passed through, what you might find is that the world is awash in new potential, and we humans are not immune to the rush of newness.  After all, the 0 Aries point (known as Spring or Fall) marks the beginning of the astrological new year – all is indeed, new!

The major focus of the week ahead of us is Venus & Mars both ingress new signs.  Venus moves from Aquarius to Pisces and Mars is released from the slower vibe of Taurus into the more mobile Gemini energy.  And, perhaps best of all, Mercury turns from retrograde into Direct motion.  I would say that the character of the week or the buzz word of this week is CHANGE.

Let’s dig in and get the details:

SundaySunday, March 24, 2019 –  While I normally include Sunday in the previous week, I didn’t write a complete post for last week, so I want to make sure we start there.  The Moon is in Scorpio for the day and things are not light, airy and breezy, but more intense, passionate with hidden currents moving through the collective.  That doesn’t mean it’s a bad day, but rather it makes it a good day to do some personal processing work, or try to get to the bottom of something.

Mercury Rx conjunct Neptune – There are two distinct potentials to how this transit can play out today.  The positive expression is that it enables you to think and express yourself with subtlety, expressing ideas and feelings that you don’t always have access to.  Artistic and creative expression is heightened, but as you are easily accessing the subconscious realms, not everyone may understand what you are trying to convey.  During this time our imaginative and mysterious inclinations are favored.

The more negative expression of this transit occurs when our imagination pushes us into illusion or unreality.  We may feel like we can enact our fantasies, and then when this transit is over the reality of our folly reveals our confused and unclear thinking.  This is not likely going to be a day of making big, life-changing decisions.

Another difficulty with this transit is the possibility of communication missteps.  We aren’t thinking clearly and our words, though they sound good to us, are not being heard by other people in their best light.  What you say may be easily misunderstood, so take care to be clear when communicating anything of importance.

Hello MondayMonday, March 25, 2019 – While you slept, the Moon moved in Sagittarius.  I just love starting a work week with the Moon in go-ahead mood and in the sign of Sagittarius.  We are moved to see the humor in things today, and we greet the day with a sense of adventure and optimism.  About the only thing to watch out for is an over-optimistic view that focuses on big ideas, but has few details.  Remember that if you are embarking on something new now, it takes both the big picture and the details to make it complete.

Moon trine Sun – Today’s accomplishments feel good and provide the basis for what will come later.  Meeting new people today may have an impact on you that lasts.  If something feels right, then it probably is right.  Your job is to put your best foot forward and follow through!

Tuesday, March 26, 2019 – Venus ingress Pisces  Venus in Pisces

Today Venus leaves Transpersonal Aquarius for Transcendent Pisces. Themes and values like Love, Universal Love, Compassion, Forgiveness, Abundance & Flow emerge into our awareness.

Now Venus puts on her ethereal garb. In Pisces, Venus is exalted – meaning she is very comfortable in the sign.  She can get caught up in the magic of romance as love and attraction get idealized. The lines get blurred for us between what is real and what is imagined. On the other hand, we are more compassionate and sensitive to one another’s pain which moves us to altruism and acts of kindness and generosity. Venus is in Pisces until April 20.

Wed imageWednesday, March 27, 2019 – The Moon is Void-of-course until 7:08 am PT/10:08 am ET this morning before it moves out of Sagittarius and into Capricorn.  Everybody is into getting down to business for a couple of days, though that may not guarantee any business gets done. It’s all about the proper attitude and appropriate emotional expression.  Get your work done, then let your hair down.  The Moon favors innovation and creative thinking today as it has a good relationship with Venus and with Uranus.

The Moon also squares the Sun today and that means that we have reached the “Crisis of Consciousness” part of the lunar cycle. We are faced with the inner shifts that need to take place in order for us to complete our New Moon intentions.  Let go of fear, resistance to change and limiting thinking and you can soar!

Venus sextile Uranus – This combination might make it difficult for you to stay focused on work today as required by the Moon in Capricorn.  In that case, you might feel yourself counting down the moments until you can get out of the office and into party mode.  That would be the best way to utilize this energy.  Work where appropriate and play where/when appropriate!  Or mix the two if that seems like a viable option.

You might also attract new friends under this influence, and they may be people who have a revolutionary effect upon you – changing your outlook, attitude or life in some interesting way.  Everyone seems interesting and interested.

Thursday, March 28, 2019 –  Mercury Direct Today

Early this morning Mercury, planet of Communication, the Mind and Transportation, Thankful Thursdayleaves retrograde for direct motion. We can all breathe a sigh of relief – except we still have the “retroshade” to deal with for a few more weeks.  The messenger planet has been retrograde in Pisces since March 5 reminding us of our Spiritual, Intuitive and Esoteric connections.  Now with Mercury moving forward we can take the lessons and revelations that we discovered about ourselves out into the world.  It’s now the time to demonstrate your as the embodiment of Spirit.  When your mind forgets it’s connection, try asking the question, “What if ___________?”  For instance, What if I am the creator of my reality and can change my life positively? or What if we can live in a world of peace and harmony?  This evokes “allowing” energy and turns the mind toward more positive territory.  Perfect for taking Mercury’s retrograde lessons out to the world you live in!

The Moon is in Capricorn all day, and she is making good connections to Mercury & Neptune.  You might remember that on Monday these two (Mercury & Neptune) were in a conjunction and our imagination and creativity were stimulated.  Now is the time to take those ideas and turn them into concrete format.  Make a plan and execute the plan.  Later in the day the Moon conjuncts Saturn conferring focus, concentration and determination to our projects.

Friday panda

The Moon sits in Capricorn for most of the day today as it conjuncts Pluto, trines Mars and squares Uranus.  The day can alternate between powerful, confrontational, unpredictable and back again, with many possibilities in between!  By the end of today, you will be so ready for the weekend!

It’s not that it is a bad day or anything.  It is just demanding of our time and attention.  We might feel like pushing the river, when of course that might blow up in our faces.  There is strength and high energy available today.  And, as long as we aren’t frustrated or angry, we can put that to good use in getting things done.  If frustration/anger builds up today, release it through physical activity.  And Uranus adds an element of surprise and unpredictability to the day, so be ready for anything!

Mars will be sitting at 29 Taurus as he prepares to move into Gemini on Saturday/Sunday.  Pay attention to what is ending, what is in process of completion and what possibilities are opening up for you.  Prepare for an energetic shift in your ability to take action and move forward.

Saturday, March 30, 2019

Today the Moon in Aquarius playfully engages the Sun in doing things in new, creative, innovative, and unexpected ways.  Taking it easy and letting things happen will let opportunities continue to grow that are already underway. Situations beginning now will be cooperative and helpful to you as they progress. A general atmosphere of getting along together prevails and will continue to if you just go with the flow.

Sunday, March 31, 2019

Late last evening on the West Coast and early this morning in the East, Mars made its move out of Taurus and into Gemini and changes the energy vibe for all of us.  While in Taurus our forward momentum was slowed down as we were having to be more deliberate in the execution of our plans.  After Mars being in Aries from January into early February, you might have felt stuck or stymied in getting what you wanted.  Well that changes now as Mars in Gemini is quick witted, quick to take action, and changeable.

While Mars is in Gemini we can become interested in many things, and dabble a bit with the new and unique.  We are more versatile and flexible, but also tend to lose focus or get bored easily.  We have to watch out for scattering our energy – this can be especially exacerbated as this is a Universal Year 3 where the natural tendency is to want to expand and explore, yet we can find ourselves scattered.

How do you deal with all this quixotic energy?  Make lists, start your day in meditation, if you feel yourself becoming unfocused or scattered, take a break and move your body, make a commitment to yourself to get what you have to do done before you move onto other things, and finally, be good to yourself if you end up straying – you might just stumble onto something wonderful for use later.

That’s it for the week everyone!  Not too bad, right?  Take care & enjoy …

Have a stellar week,

Janet Hickox, Living Astrology
