Accidents, politics, controversy, tragedies, headlines – July has proved to be a very intense month. Mars, the trigger planet, has kept the formidable Uranus/Pluto transit well activated, especially through the latter portion of July. For the first three weeks of August, it’s Jupiter’s turn to pump up the volume and to mobilize evolutionary necessity.
Be reminded that the Uranus/Pluto evolutionary mandate aims to radically overthrow our existing reality, and it often does so in the blink of an eye. The outworn and obsolete must go. Major change is the aim. Our present day evolution requires our fullest attention and acceptance – and action.
The Aug 6 new moon is in trine to Uranus which suggests revitalization and fresh page opportunity. Jupiter in opposition to Pluto on August 7 can deliver something monumental. The big push is on. Watch for political and social movement, perhaps a major campaign launched, a major merger, or a major announcement. Perhaps science will have something to show us too. Aug 20 delivers a full moon in Aquarius. Mercury, Ceres, and Vesta are involved in this full moon. On Aug 21, Jupiter squares Uranus; watch for another breakthrough or sharp corner turned.
In the last week of August, Venus, the net worth, self worth, and survival planet, adds to the Uranus/ Pluto equation. Whether you consciously choose it or it chooses you, a new direction is in the works for each one of us. It is a time to show up for yourself in a brand new way, and for the one to contribute to the whole. Seize the moment, ride the wave. Risk taking is not an option, it’s a necessity.
