The next two weeks will find us training our ego with style so we can “put on the show” with beauty and class. We are being shown the Light of Power and the Power of Light, with a huge dose of humor available as we practice emergent specialized skills in unique circumstances. This gets us ready for a launch of the next stage of our spiritual service in September!
We’ll begin with noting we’re still “under the beams” of recent Eclipses, as well as older ones. We’re now shutting something down we no longer need in life areas symbolized by Cancer and Capricorn. The Nodes are the keys to understand how we’re accepting and growing, and what we’re demonstrating or letting go of. The recent Total Solar Eclipse at 11 Cancer has already begun to strip away all which would inhibit our sense of humor or irony.
We’re also still experiencing past Solar Eclipse “cosmic recycling” wherever we have 16 Capricorn, 21 Cancer and 19 Leo, as we had Eclipses on these degrees. We’ve been getting organized, exploring what success really means to us, and letting go of old “social rigidities” to be happier. All these Solar Eclipses, along with others, have allowed us to “shed skins” wherever we have 9, 19, and 30 Pisces, 28 Aquarius, along with 29 Leo, 10 Virgo, and 21 Virgo. As you can see, that involves a large part of our charts!
Add various Lunar Eclipses in play for several months after they happened (including the January Supermoon Lunar Eclipse at 1 Leo/Aquarius and the most recent one at 25 Cancer/Capricorn!) and you can see areas where we’ve been eliminating things we no longer need since January. A good meditation would be to take a look back at how something related to that axis in your chart has left and been replaced with something new. All our losses associated with these signs have left voids which will attract life contents more appropriate to who we are now.
Major Aspects and Configurations
Interestingly, we have relatively few forming and partile separating frictional aspects in this Full Moon. I’ve already told you about the “Tension of Opposites” involving the Moon opposing Sun, Venus, and Mars, creating a zone of awareness spanning the last decan of Leo and Aquarius. This month, a specializing evolutionary configuration is happening, since Uranus cuts the opposition with a quintile from the Moon and tredeciles from Venus and the Sun, triggering the previous Mars tredecile Uranus through collection of light.
This configuration makes this a very special and specializing Lunation, creating 10 zones of interactive serendipity which will generate unique circumstances, gifts, and blessings, for those with planets or points near 1-2 Aries-Libra, 4-8 Taurus-Scorpio, 10-14 Gemini-Sag, 16-20 Cancer-Capricorn, 22-26 Leo-Aquarius and 28-30 Virgo-Pisces. In general, because Uranus is where it is, this could make for some dramatic entrances of elements of our new life already speeding forward!
The Venus-Sun triseptile to Neptune is important, since it marks a change in the collective atmosphere, ushering in a period of effort to train to put ourselves forward to demonstrate some forms of mastery. As the Sun and Venus both quincunx Pluto, the triseptile doesn’t trigger the Grand Irrationality, but it is indicative of the world being at another fork in the road which will involve some degree of expansion through sacrifice. Areas most affected include 16-20 Pisces, 8-12 Taurus, 30 Gemini-4 Cancer, 21-25 Leo, 13-17 Libra, 4-8 Sagittarius, and 25-29 Capricorn.
Another configuration I mentioned in part 1 is the Rhombus Diamond energy set into motion by Mercury square Uranus and sesquisquare Neptune. This again generates friction related to genius needing clarity around which roles it will paly in the world. This puts pressure on planets we may have around 4-8 Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius, as well as 19-23 Gemini, Virgo, Sag, and Pisces. Get clear and stay clear about your creative genius, move from anticipating and daydreaming to actual accomplishments, and see which steps will have to be taken to complete current projects while preparing for the next ones.
Some of this friction is a “foreshock” to the perfect Rhombus Diamond which will be formed at the beginning of September, accompanied by the numerous transits square Jupiter, opposing Neptune, and sesquisquaring Uranus. Expect a lot of tension in late August and early September, so be clear when you need to rest, or relax, or take a time out from worrying about so many things which aren’t “perfect, whole, and complete.”
Besides the aspects mentioned above, inner planet aspects in play involve the Moon novile Saturn and quindecile Neptune; Mercury is vigintile the Sun, quindecile Mars, quadranovile Saturn, and trine Chiron; Venus and the Sun are both conjunct each other and Mars, biquintile Saturn, tredecile Uranus, triseptile Neptune and quincunx Pluto.
Outer planet forming and partile separating aspects include Mars tredecile Jupiter, sesquisquare Saturn, quadranovile Neptune, biquintile Pluto, and biquintile Chiron; Jupiter is semisextile Saturn, biquintile Uranus, square Neptune, decile Pluto, and tredecile Chiron; Saturn makes only a binovile to Chiron and a “frustrated conjunction” with Pluto; and Uranus is semisquare Neptune. Obviously the aspects made from Jupiter out are long term influences.
The very powerful Uranus biseptile Pluto won’t be back into orb until the October Full Moon. How we handled the Saturn biseptile Uranus earlier this year will determine which “awakenings” will occur in our lives, since Saturn gave us the structure for the unique beginning Uranus always signifies. The biseptile is an irrational aspect of the 7th harmonic series. Saturn gave us the beginnings of the structure which will now be infused with Uranian awakenings, which in turn will affect the group activity to come when Saturn again biseptiles Uranus this December.
The biseptile between Saturn, the planet of “Spiritual Mastery and Spiritual Friendship” and Uranus, the planet symbolizing the Divine Revolutionary who follows their own path to their Higher Destiny, set the stage for the off-again, on-again Uranus biseptile Pluto from the same sectors in the zodiac. This will dominate the landscape for a long time to come, so expect some major choices and changes which will help you shape your destiny and live your higher purpose. I have termed the evolutionary pattern created by the biseptile “the Grand Irrationality V.2”, and it most affects planets and points near 21-25 Capricorn, 13-17 Pisces, 5-9 Taurus, 26-30 Gemini, 17-21 Leo, 8-12 Libra, and 30 Scorpio-4 Sagittarius.
Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto have all been retrograde since March-April, and since then we’ve looked back, retraced steps, relearned lessons, and prepared for the forward movement in these planetary areas of our lives which will begin now and September. We have begun to sprout the seeds of “transcendent security,” remember a deep wisdom by feeling Neptune’s subtle signals, and are awakening to a new quality of life rendering the old patterns obsolete. We are “returning to Source” and are drawing power and vision from ancient standards. Show strong Love!
Even though Uranus is now in Taurus, what we substantiate and confirm in 2019 and coming years is directed related to what we learned when Uranus was in late Aries in Summer 2016 through early 2019. We now know what corner of the universe we’re supposed to be in, and are clear about our part to sing in “the Cosmic Choir.” The coming period is one of major choices and changes on a global level related to these planets helping humanity’s metamorphosis. Those who learn how to use these dynamic invisible spiritual energies will become effective Spiritual units of Consciousness in the body of Humanity in the future.
Besides very few frictional aspects, we have a tremendous number of spiritual aspects in play among the traditional planets at this Full Moon. Of the series related to destiny and “fate,” we have only 2 triseptiles, and the series related to spiritual realizatons we have only 1 novile, 1 binovile and 2 quadranoviles, with no “elftile” series aspects. However, an abnormal number of specializing aspects are in play, including 1 vigintile, 2 quindeciles, 1 decile, 1 quintile, FOUR tredeciles, and FIVE biquintiles. (I chose to include aspects to Chiron this month, because there are so many it’s clear mentoring and healing into our Higher Self is in the air!)
For those new to the craft, quintiles and biquintiles are 5th harmonic aspects, septiles and triseptiles are 7th harmonic aspects, noviles are 9th harmonic aspects, deciles (semi-quintiles) and tredeciles are 10th harmonic aspects, the elftile series are 11th harmonic aspects, the quindecile is a 15th harmonic aspect, and the vigintile is a 20th harmonic aspect. Each of these has a unique function in the phase relationship of the two planets in aspect.
The 5th, 10th, 15th, and 20th harmonic aspects are specializing and bring forth partially or fully developed quintessential elements of the planets involved. The 7th harmonic aspects help us make choices to fulfill our destiny, and the novile series aspects (9th harmonic) represent entry or exit points of periods of gestation which can bring forth possible spiritual developments. The 11th harmonic aspects involve situations where there is a need to transcend and master some form of duality by making a leap of faith.
The various aspects in all these different harmonic series indicate points where the theme of the Whole Cycle becomes clear, whether through major developments or minor refinements in the process. Each aspect shows a phase relationship, specific to the special and unique circumstances of that particular Whole Cycle. It's how we can know when to work, when to play, when to create, when to imagine, when to have faith, and when to mobilize!
If you want to know more about these aspects, when you’re done here please go to The Specializing Aspects Pt. 1 – Quintile, Tredecile, Decile, and Biquintile, The Specializing Aspects Pt. 2 – The Quindecile and Vigintile, and The Spiritual Aspect Series – The Novile, Septile, and Elftile Harmonic Aspects where you’ll find more about the meaning of these aspects and the glyphs associated with them. Also, remember that all of these set up harmonic resonance void points all over our charts.
We have now returned to a radically imbalanced element distribution. Of the traditional 10 planets, there are 5 planets in Fire signs, 1 in Water, 3 in Earth, and 1 in Air. This shows a predominance of Fire (Inspiration and Light), with a normal amount of Earth (Practicality and Grounding), with a severe deficiency of Water (Feelings and Experiencing Life on Deep Levels) and Air (Relatedness and Communications), indicating these last two qualities must come from within rather than external sources.
Air and Earth are “cool” elements, while Fire and Water are “hot” elements. With this distribution, things are slightly more hot than cold, with the Earth keeping things grounded. The combination of Fire and Earth is good for inspired practicality, and grounded inspiration. This can anchor a great hearted effort in the world, with organization and creativity interacting to make unique structures in any of the four elemental worlds of creation.
The current sequence at present of Deciding, Feeling, and Thinking
We’ve been through several different sequences over the past few months. There are six patterns, and each has their strengths and weaknesses. This Lunation brings us a new pattern. As a process of moving through events, the most effective “firing sequence” for approaching life and experience over the next 4 weeks involves leading with our thinking, then deciding, and then feeling.
This pattern leads with their understanding, vision, or analytical perceptions, and then makes decisions and acts based in those perceptions. While it is tempting to move back into more thinking, analyzing, and envisioning after we act, instead of going back to the mind to confirm our action, we must get to our feeling-experience around what we just decided or did. When we go deep enough and understand what we are experiencing, then new information, new understanding, and/or a new vision will naturally arise that points the way to the next action.
When you are moved by an idea, vision, perception, or understanding, it will naturally lead to decisions on the basis of those ideas. This should be followed by a time of solitude and reflection where we can identify what we’re feeling and experiencing. Once we identify what we’re experiencing, we’ll naturally be moved to search for newer information, newer ideas, newer interpretations, and newer views. So let your thinking and communicating and envisioning lead you to “right action,” and feel what you must to come to a newer view.
Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend
Because Saturn is in its home sign of Capricorn, it is the final dispositor of all planets transiting Capricorn and Aquarius from now through 2023. That made it a dominant force in the last Lunar Eclipse as well as this Full Moon, since it rules the Moon in both charts. Remember that though Saturn can feel heavy, it also symbolizes the power we have to take command of our lives and destiny by using Saturn’s virtues in the right way and time.
Though Saturn is no longer biseptile Uranus, we’ve begun to shape our lives through our choices since then. Saturn has been preparing us for a “role of destiny” later this year and next. We’re still rehearsing new roles for the future as part of the Saturn-Uranus “dance of individualization” in our lives and this month need tender care as we show concern for our “new quality of being which renders the old patterns obsolete.”
I explain how these two awaken us to our Higher Powers to take conscious command of our destiny in my book Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend.Saturn helps us give form and structure to our quest for Self-realization, and in Capricorn, teaches us how to construct an “organized personal structure” to the Uranian energies making our spiritual life come alive.
It was written for both astrologers and non-astrologers. Even those with little or no understanding of astrology will benefit from understanding why you had to make certain choices at crucial times that shaped your life in profound ways.
Each time you read any section of this book you will find new insights about your power to steer your personal evolution. You will understand how to throw off all the attitudes and memories which have held you back from finding and living the life and purpose. Through your journey of self-discovery, you can find ways to live your life on your own terms, and fulfill your purpose for being alive as an Eternal having human experiences!
If you’ve haven’t already gotten your copy, you can go to the Saturn: Spiritual Master, Spiritual Friend page on Amazon and this should be all you need to order your copy. It’s also available on Amazon and as an ebook on Kindle, so if that’s more to your liking, go for it! If you would, whether you’ve gotten the ebook or the paperback, please write a review on the Amazon site, since the more reviews, the more of a boost they give it.
Summing it Up
This Full Moon is intensely creative-expressive, and give us a great period of taming and training our ego so our Higher Self can put it to practical use in the future. As Mercury is on its retrograde station, we may come to understand some things in July may take longer than we thought, but the creative potential is off the charts! This period is totally future oriented, out of balance, inspired, and good for anticipating greater things to come.
The awareness generated by the oppositions will yield unique gifts and blessed circumstances for many, with lots of high specialization in the air. Those who did the tough stuff before now will reap tremendous blessings; those who didn’t will be playing catch up. Friction requires a new approach, whether detached or more intense.
What is emerging arises from all that has not been fulfilled before now, so go deep and note the subconscious or unconscious factors in those frictional circumstances. Keep expanding your dramatic, playful, or creative self-expression based in an enthusiastic embrace of a better future based in a more positive view of what you could do if your growth were accelerated, which it is. !
We are all now living a new wisdom, or new ways to move and groove with that emerging wisdom. Extraordinary events are in motion for those who are in training for group work, practicing using power in skillful ways, and learning to “think in the future,” which will arrive by 2020! Friction over the next 2 weeks will help us deal with unexpected challenges in the first half of 2020 so we can take advantage of the opportunities offered in 2021.
We are now in the final phase of humanity’s “liberating ordeal,” and are finding new inner strengths and powers we’ve tapped in past months. We’re again in a long wave period of finding assistance from Devas and Angels who bring “divine help when human efforts seem to fail.” Again, learn the power of forgiveness to create space for Grace to enter your Life. When new adventures beckon, embrace them with warmth, since you might find Spiritual Brothers and Sisters from past lives along the way!
The past two years have led us all to blend the old with the new, the traditional with the innovative, throwing us into an adventure in higher awareness where we can demonstrate confidence and heart strength. We now are living a new identity, a new love, a new spiritual awareness, and a new spiritual expression in grounded ways, so keep your mind and heart open and keep coordinating your body, feelings, and mind to demonstrate a stable and harmonized Soul energy.
A Meditation on Light and Shadow
Because life seems to be a never-ending experience of out-breathing elements of the past and in-breathing elements of the new, it is useful to remember that when we are moving through major changes, and something new is introduced into our lives, it means that something else must leave, or has already left, to provide space for the new to be embraced. And lesser wisdom must give way to greater wisdom, and old forms give way to newer realities.
While sometimes having to say goodbye to older, lesser ways of life can be a drag, it is important to remember that even though life can occasionally be painful, we do not have to suffer. And as we learn to break the link between pain and suffering, we heal our part of humanity and the world.
For your contemplation, a final meditation I offer each month at the end of our Full Moon journey of exploration.
We are Light. All things are composed of Light in various frequencies that express as limitless forms. Some light frequencies are of greater density than others.
All shadows result from light hitting a dense object. Psychological shadows too. Therefore, it’s good to become as translucent and translucid as possible to dispel lurking shadows.
If you must look at and/or deal with shadows, whether your own or another’s, then refocus your Light on the object being illuminated, since that form is the source of the shadow.
Find the correct 4 angles of illuminating whatever you want to focus on, and all shadows will be dispelled. Then you’re seeing things with an
