Open Hearts & Hands


This week’s headline items: Chiron, the Wounded Healer, remains exalted all week (still stationing until July 26th);  it is time to start taking actions on our New Moon intentions on Wednesday; Chiron comes to a halt in Aries on Thursday afternoon, starting its annual 5-month Retrograde phase; and the first Quarter Moon in Libra becomes exact on Saturday morning. 

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Monday morning (for 20 hours); Thursday very early morning (almost 8 hours); and Saturday morning (a little over 7.5 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like to mention one more time:

Now, this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 12th:

Monday morning, the Moon remains in fun and attention-loving Leo all day. We may lack objectivity and struggle with backing down or compromising.

We all love to be admired — or at the very least acknowledged — for our greatness 🙂 So hand out some compliments — let people know how proud you are of them, tell them how much you love them. Come from the heart in this and all other things… be honest and authentic, as best you can.

Fun, games and romance are a big part of this energy as well. You might also enjoy spending time with little ones. If there are no “outer children” around, how about getting in touch with your “inner child” — it’s definitely easier today. What are you most grateful for today? What would be heaps and heaps of fun? What would be so much fun, you let out a tiny squeak, just thinking of it?

Monday at 8:29am EDT, we enter a Moon Void of Course (VoC), that lasts for 20 hours until 4:30am EDT (Tuesday early morning). Use this intuitive time to practice active gratitude. As best as you can, be aware of taking a prideful stand, or taking something too personally. What personal goals or desires are you called to go after?

As always with a Moon VoC, as best as you can, don’t start anything brand-new, stick to routine things, or simply go with the flow. You may also want to plan Monday morning until Tuesday early morning ahead of time.

Monday afternoon, a harmonious Mercury/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 3:45pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Saturday evening (July 10) on; and it will remain strong until Wednesday afternoon. During this aspect, we are more optimistic, which is good, since we see the bigger picture, communicate more positively, and readily inspire others in practical ways.

We are tolerant of other perspectives and ideas, naturally avoid narrow-minded thinking, and feel at ease reconnecting with people from all walks of life — we might be drawn to explore family or spiritual relations with people from other cultures and countries, or to learn a foreign language that would support our emotional connections.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in the following: 0-5 degrees of Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio, or 28-29º of Gemini, Aquarius or Libra? Do you have an Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius? If so, you will be…
