Dissolve What No Longer Works — Forecast for July 27th – Aug. 2nd


This week’s headline items: the first Quarter Moon in Scorpio becomes exact on Monday morning; Venus ends her Shadow phase Tuesday night; and Uranus starts its Station phase on Wednesday.

There will be three Moon VoC phases this week: Tuesday night/Wednesday very early morning (for almost 3.5 hours), Thursday evening (for almost 12 hours), and Sunday late morning (for a little over 4 hours).


Before we get to this week’s forecast, I’d like post a gentle reminder:

Now, this week’s Forecast…


Monday, July 27th:

Monday is quite a big day (astrologically speaking): the Moon remains in harmony-loving, balance-seeking Libra until 12:12am EDT; at this time, the Moon moves into passionate, all-or-nothing Scorpio, where it will journey until Wednesday very early morning. We feel things deeply and have “X-Ray Vision” and “Bullshit-Smelling Abilities” 😉

Emotional authenticity is extremely important to us at this time; anything less than 100% emotional honesty could be perceived as flat-out dishonest. Once we feel safe trusting someone, we want to merge with them, preferably forever… as long as our trust is never betrayed.

The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power. This occurs by a process of subtraction — it urges us to let go of whatever disempowers us. It’s therefore an excellent time to look at “old” fears, limiting habits or emotional attachments, especially those stemming from past traumas.

Moon in Scorpio tends to run right over ambiguity — it’s “in or out”, “with us or against us”, “love me or leave me”. It can therefore be stormy — a cold winter storm, or a torrid tropical storm of passion, depending on how we “work” the energies 🙂

Manipulation and paranoia are the lower vibrations of this aspect, so as best you can, be straightforward — act in good faith and assume it in others. Best of all, be truly present to the fluctuations of your feelings — no matter if they’re “polite” or “timely”. Feelings aren’t facts, but they are information — and heeding them will help you embrace all of who you are.

Know thyself — and love thyself — you shall be set free. Remember: Love connects us to the Power within; Fear causes “Force” to show up — and that’s ultimately what disempowers us and others. This Moon placement also starts the build up towards the first Quarter Moon.

Monday at 8:33am EDT, the first Quarter Moon in almost 5 degrees of Scorpio becomes exact. The Moon in passionate, all-or-nothing, intensely-feeling, private Scorpio makes a challenging aspect to the Sun in fun-loving, extroverted, attention-seeking, proud Leo. We feel compelled to take action.

Last week on July 20th, the New Moon in Cancer was exact: “Seeds” planted then are probably “sprouting” by now — and making their first real contact with the outside world. This is therefore a time to stretch and grow — and create some forward momentum. We may feel anxious or unusually busy.

As best as you can, go one breath at a time. Allow for changes, remain flexible (as much as possible), and find creative solutions for your day-to-day interactions with others.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 3-7 degrees of Scorpio, Leo, Taurus or Aquarius? If so, you will feel the effects of this first Quarter Moon more strongly than otherwise. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Leo or Cancer (the Sun rules Leo; the Moon rules Cancer).

Monday early afternoon, a long-lasting, opportune Jupiter/Neptune aspect  becomes exact at 12:07pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from July 9th on; and it will remain strong until Aug. 23rd. This aspect is an opportunity to expand and ground our perspectives around our dreams and ideals. This is also an opportunity for boundaries to dissolve — to open and relax.

Indeed, we are more attuned to the subtleties of our belief structures (individually and collectively speaking), and are therefore more inclined to dissolve anything that no longer works, all the while trusting the inner guidance of our higher self.

We tend to “feel” each other on an energetic level now; a sensitive approach is therefore recommended — as we are tapping into the collective experience, it might be wise to remember that everyone is working with the current energies as best as they can.

As such, even if some of us get overwhelmed or confronted by the Capricorn-energies out there (perhaps by facing some harsh realities and inner limitations), we all deserve some compassion, understanding, and forgiveness.

Ask yourself: How can I expand my current point of view about the collective and its limitations? What if kindness towards the world would bring peace into my life and my heart?

Creative or spiritual adventures might be a good fit with this planetary connection. We may also feel the need to daydream or inspire others.

Ask yourself: What if I allowed the Universe to co-create with me? What does the term “spiritual business goals” mean to me? If such goals called to me, where might I begin an exploration? What might “imaginative business planning” look like? What might show up in my world if I spent a little time contemplating or daydreaming on those things?

As best as you can, bring compassion and kindness towards your social and long-term explorations; remember: opportunities are openings, they aren’t necessarily handed to us — we have to “take” them and make something of them.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 18-23 degrees of Capricorn, Pisces, Taurus, or Scorpio? If so, you will be more aware of this opportunity. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Sagittarius or Pisces (Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius; Neptune rules Pisces).

Also, on Monday early afternoon, a somewhat challenging Venus/Jupiter aspect becomes exact at 1:36pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from Sunday (July 26th) on; and it will remain strong until Tuesday evening. This aspect operates more on an internal level. We feel uneasy about something, almost awkward — and we need to make a choice. An inner awareness needs to be developed in order to see what needs adjusting.

This aspect marks a fork in the road: Will we step onto a path of learning about inner dialog and sharing ourselves with others by being open and curious? Or will we take the path that leads to a larger understanding around social structures and of our perspectives and attitudes around long-term goals and achievements?

Either way, we can develop a new perspective on how to approach these issues in our life. Awareness is key with this aspect: What is needed? How can we serve the broader view?

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 19-22 degrees of Gemini or Capricorn? If so, you will feel this aspect quite strongly. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Sagittarius (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius).

And, also on Monday early afternoon: a challenging Venus/Neptune aspect becomes exact at 1:48pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Thursday evening (July 23rd) on; and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. We might feel confused, unrealistic, or overly idealistic around love and money — so it’s best to wait until this transit is over, before making big moves in these areas.

If you choose to make long-term financial investments, buy or sell big-ticket items, or start brand-new relationships — at this time — it’s likely you will not see things as they truly are.

We are actually being asked to have faith, go with the flow; to let our intuition guide us in money and love — if we are able to do this, we will grow through it. As best as you can, be compassionate with yourself and others during these 6 days — it might also help to know that relationships and endeavors of a spiritual or artistic nature can move forward at this time.

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or personal planets) in 17-24 degrees of Gemini, Pisces, Sagittarius or Virgo? If so, you are more affected by this aspect. This is also true for those of us who have our Ascendant or Sun-sign in Taurus, Libra or Pisces  (Venus is the ruler of Taurus and Libra; Neptune rules Pisces).

And, Monday early evening, a challenging Mercury/Mars aspect becomes exact at 5:46pm EDT. We started to feel this aspect build from last week Thursday evening (July 23rd) on; and it will remain strong until this Thursday evening. This aspect brings some juicy energy to our conversations. This is a chance to have some discussions that have been overdue.

As best as you can, make it a productive discussion that serves you and others — a win-win — otherwise you might feel really awful afterwards. Also, watch out on the road for some crazy drivers… rushing might not necessarily get you there faster 😉

Do you have your Ascendant, Career Point (or any personal planets) in 13-20 degrees of Cancer, Aries, Capricorn, or Libra? If so, you may feel…
