Cancer (June 21-July 22)
An already busy and emotionally, somatically dynamic summer is building to a crescendo. If there were one word I could use to articulate the tone of this crescendo it would be empowerment. Good word, huh? Even better than the word is what you can do with the life force described by this word. This energy is (has been) building this week and will last through next week. You may experience heightened emotions, ambitions, intuition, and joy…so beware! There’s always a “but” and in this case the “but” will come in the form of old, outdated ways of relating to others that you will either consciously or unconsciously manifest through your dealings with others. Align your actions with your intentions—and be thorough in the contemplation of hidden/unconscious intentions—and be sure not to exaggerate your personal experience and you will have the greatest opportunity to experience the best of this energy. The most likely real life occurrences will be in personal, business or educational relationships: out with old forms or relating and time to live up to aspirations.
Gemini (May 20-June 21)
This has been a great period of self-assessment and you have had numerous opportunities to learn, grow and recognize your sense of self –worth in the last month. It may have felt as though you were on public display with all of the interactions that have been necessary to facilitate the energy coursing though your being. Whenever anyone goes through such a period (and like it or not we all do) there can be a craving to be left alone, to not have any responsibility towards anyone, to even disappear. Whether you are able to extricate yourself from others or not, I suspect you will feel a well-deserved, strong sense of independence this week: a chance to think, act, and talk freely without having to be keenly sensitive to others. Warning: this does not mean you can say whatever you want to whomever you want! In fact, due to this letdown, it will be ever important to think before speaking and remember your audience.
Taurus (April 19-May 20)
Sometimes the more you focus on something the hardest it is to understand.. You may find this especially true at the beginning of this week as something akin to an internal (or even external) battle between chaos and order takes place. This is no small matter for anyone let alone folks with a Taurus Sun and/or Taurus rising, as these astrological signatures have a lot to say about fixation. The trick will be not putting a judgment on either one of these dynamics since they both exist for important reasons and play important roles. That may sound fundamental to some of you, and perhaps foreign to others, it’s just that I figure that we’ve all been conditioned into a bias against chaos and to some degree or another for order. How much of each can you allow, when and where do you need to let go of one and let the other act, in order to be more fully yourself and let others be more fully themselves?
Aries (Mar 20-Apr 19)
The hardest part of any plan can be the wait necessary before implementation. Creative output is not just a matter of letting the juices flow there is a lot of necessary practice and patience involved. Ask any writer if they simply sat down and wrote their masterpiece novel one day and most (if not all) would say no—much preparation, planning, and visioning took place before pen went to paper. You are in that imaginative space now, in fact ripe for receptivity to subtler realities than you’re used to, and will benefit from experiencing (rather than resisting) the resistance. There is something you’re holding in your body that needs release, some tension that has an emotional connection. This may come to a pinnacle mid-week and scream for release. Prepare healthy outlets such as meditation, yoga, running, and/or racquetball. The Sun in your solar 5th House and Mars sextile Venus suggest there’s a nice opportunity to release this tension through a romantic interlude.
Daily Horary Astrology 7/29/13 for the West coast of US--(if you want another region let me know)
This moment features once again Venus opposite Netune, looser than the other day, but applying to the ascendant and descendant (the horizontal line in the middle of the circle). The next hour or two is a good time to work on all relationships: with yourself, your lover, god/dess, mother earth, money, music, poetry, identity...
Whatever you do, don't take things too seriously this moment also features the moon opposite Saturn which sets a serious, reflective mood. Add some levity to your musings and bask in the opportunity to live another day.
