Ridding Ourselves of Self-Delusion — Forecast for July 15 – 21


This week’s headline items: A Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn becomes exact on Tuesday late afternoon, the Mercury station ends on Thursday, and Mercury re-enters the sign of Cancer very early Friday.

There are only two Moon VoC phases this week, but they’re both pretty long: Tuesday late afternoon (for a little over 11.5 hours) and Thursday late morning/early afternoon (over 29 hours).

Before we get to this week’s forecast, I have two quick announcements:

Now for this week’s Forecast…

Monday, July 15th:

Monday, the Moon remains in practical, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn all day, where it will journey until Wednesday early morning.  We tend to be more realistic, serious, cautious; this can support practical endeavors and financial matters.

Our ambition surges and brings with it a need for structure and planning; when you add in the pragmatism this aspect supports, you can see how this could be a very productive time for business and long-term goals. Our reputation becomes very important to us.
As best as you can during this aspect, avoid “should-ing” on yourself. Take the pressure off, perhaps by saying “I am doing the best I can and that’s all I can ever do” 😉

Saturn is the ruler of Capricorn; it is currently transiting through its own sign, making this a great time to take look at your long-term aspirations and anything that you would like to master over the next three years. It’s also a great time to take a more serious look at our strategies for self-mastery.

For starters: Do you truly see “what’s so” in your life (as opposed to what you merely wish it to be, or what you would like it to be, or where you see yourself going, etc)? What is actually so right now? Once you have a handle on where “A” is, it’s easier to “go from A to B” — whether “B” is self-mastery or standing on the mountaintop. This Moon placement starts the build up to the Full Moon (exact Tuesday late afternoon).

Monday morning: we are invited to make adjustments and find creative solutions to seemingly insoluble situations. As best as you can, make space for looking into some alternative exercise programs or holistic approaches to your personal projects and current long-term commitments. Compassion is key 😉

Also on Monday morning, we are invited to connect with like-minded people, and learn something new about our unique talents or value to the world. We are better able to connect to anything that involves a long-term commitment. We perhaps might also implement revolutionary business practices or government programs that support our values and make life tangibly more enjoyable.

Monday early afternoon, we are in invited to make some inner adjustments. We feel uneasy or awkward and need to make a choice.

Making this choice demands we develop inner awareness around two very different urges: on the one hand, the urge to be creative, self-expressed, and playing full-out — and on the other, the desire to accomplish something out there in the real world, and to be responsible and self-reliant.

Monday night/Tuesday very early morning, our instincts and need for safety are strongly engaged; we are invited to…
