Astrology Forecast for Creatives | Week of July 18th - challenges and culminations

transplantacja by empreinte

If you look up in the sky now you will see the red planet Mars. And sitting very close to Mars you will see two other lights - one is the brightest star in the summer sky, also reddish in color, Antares (heart of the Scorpio constellation), and the other is Saturn.

These three guys are some pretty badass energies to hang together and due to Mars (now direct but covering old ground) and Saturn's retrogrades they have been hanging together for a long time. Magnify their malefic influence with that square to Uranus - the planet of anything can happen and rebellion sitting in Mars (war, anger) and we have some very challenging energy here.

This week add in the Full Moon energy and the Moon and Sun squaring Uranus, too - in some respects it really is a powder keg - use caution. There is also the potential for things (and news) to be 'blown out of proportion'. Keep this in mind.

Those with natal and progressed planets in the 25-27 degree range could feel this 'powder keg' strongest in whatever area of your life this is all sitting. This energy can also be depressing. Please use the Leo energy available to do something fun or creative.

On Monday, the Moon is in authoritative Capricorn. We are building toward Tuesday's Full Moon. We may be more emotional when it comes to our work or in dealing with authority figures. Mercury (communication) is trining (brakes off) Saturn (stability, authority) making this a good time to communicate with bosses and people we are looking to impress provided we can keep our emotions in check. Stay professional. Curb negative thoughts. News or decisions involving Leo ruled stuff (kids, creativity, passion, fun) or the stuff ruled by our Leo natal house, could require us to make adjustments.

On Tuesday, we have the Full Moon in Capricorn - more on this next post! This is the culmination of the Capricorn New Moon when we set our intentions for the New Year. What were doing last Christmas Eve? Something from that time period winds up now. This one is about commitments, focus and dealing with reality. Mercury is still trining Saturn so the Full Moon will likely illuminate some news for us. Whatever shows up will confirm if we have been working hard enough or are working toward the right stuff. The stuff we've been putting our energy into since the New Moon on July 4th will matter here.

On Wednesday, Venus (love, women, money) and Saturn (stability, security, authority, hard work) hook up (I am kind of picturing the GOP convention bringing out a bunch of women to talk about how much they love Trump or maybe something happens to make Trump more appealing to women or maybe Hillary gets more appealing by appearing more stable). We get the 'money, love, women' by taking things seriously or something more stabilizing comes through a woman. The Moon has moved into Aquarius so friends, groups, causes or the internet factors in somehow or maybe something new or unusual plays a part here.

On Thursday, schedules can get off-track. We will be adjusting to others. Stay flexible. On Friday, the Sun moves into LEO. Leo will encourage us to play, take center stage, take pride in ourselves and our 'creations', spend time with children (note - if you do not have young children in your life it is still important to spend time with children somehow - they carry the energy of 'newness' and it rubs off on us, unless you are newly 'in love' it comes with that, too!) and be passionate! If we do not know what we are passionate about, begin with whatever is in our vicinity since it carries the energy we carried when we attracted it - start by being passionate about that - it will carry us to the next thing!

Note that though I write these posts out as daily energies - energy builds and wanes, sometimes quite gradually- so we can feel these transits at different times than as noted here as planets and points move into and out of connection with other energies. Also, for example, if you are very sensitive or involved with Mercury - that trine (brakes off) with Saturn this week could impact you more deeply than the Full Moon ....

xo all - no void moons during work hours this week!
