Greetings, solar worshippers! Time to emerge from your domicile (ruled by Cancer) and/to catch the Sun’s smile. The Sun is finally in Leo. There are little details sprinkled throughout astrological lore, often rich in reflective wisdom. For instance, the sign of “Aquarius, the water bearer” isn’t actually a “water” sign. There’s often a truth hidden within such enigmas. One might wonder why the “season of the sun” (summer) would start with the sign of Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. It’s because the Sun is too hot and powerful during Cancer, prompting us to stay indoors. So, now what’s your new/next excuse? We are now in the Year of the Dragon, which relates to Leo. Time to/for double the fun in the Sun. Time to shine like the golden solar dragon climbing the 7 steps (chakras) to heaven, which are the 7 deadly sins, transcended.
e LEO (7.23-8.22) At last, you are reborn, oh kings and queens — but not quite yet, my pet. How ’bout dat, kitty cat! Gotta wait 2 more weeks, your royal geeks, ’til August 8 to relate; after Mercury retrograde in Leo moves direct, then you/we can also expect a/to redirect. In the meantime, in between time, I guess we’ll see what this Fool Moon next Wednesday (August 1st) can/will mean to thee, when you, me and we can expect the unexpected, your majesty. Look to (a) Virgo (below) to find the difference between opportunism and greed…
f VIRGO (8.23-9.22) Tact and diplomacy are the answers for/toward your royal friends (above); these lessons from the sign of love (Libra). You appear to me to be a humble middle-woman/-man, trying to get 2 opposing views to quit cursing long enough to listen and understand. We are now in Leo, the sign of royalty. Time for diplomacy. Remember, if you act as the royal valet or maid, by mid-September you could/should get paid.
g LIBRA (9.23-10.22) Wake up at dawn and meditate on the rising Sun, with first Jupiter (expansion) and then Venus (love/art/desire) paving at least 2 avenues through Gemini. Sounds like a short, pleasant trip to visit your brothers and/or sisters would be hip. Watch out for either a Leo — or you, acting like a Leo — at the party.
h SCORPIO (10.23-11.22) Time for all you Merlins and Morgan Le Fays to get out and about, to prepare for your mystical parleys. The arrivals of your Arthur and Guinevere be near. They (will) require your magique to resolve their/what’s tragic. Beware, for Mercury retrograde in your 10th House, highlighted by a solar conjunction on Saturday afternoon, at 3 ’til 3:00, finds a fly in your ointment. In your case, you can forestall any “royal” disappointment by hiding ’til the 8th. Fasting helps one become invisible…
i SAGITTARIUS (11.23-12.21) Please read Libra. With you, your goal is more “intimate” than mere friendship — if you know what I mean. You want to do something nice (Venus) in a BIG way (Jupiter), and it keeps getting BIGGER everyday. (Among us elves)…It’s called “recognition.” You’ve got to make a BIG decision, because always — with you — it’s a choice between 2. How does the MOJO know that you’ll always find that your first thought is from your heart and the 2nd is from your mind?
j CAPRICORN (12.22-1.20) What were you thinking this past Wednesday morning, the 25th? Remember, that’s the birth of/for whatever will fill your life in mid-September (around the 17th). Make the/your past last. Write a book. Meditate. Apply the lessons of/from music to the harmony that is to be your life, and relate ’em to your husband/wife. Study/do/become your yoga — and then tell me how there came to be so many more yoga instructors than there are yogis?
k AQUARIUS (1.21-2.19) How the heck was the car wreck? Boom! I see the flashing red light flashing through your night. Here come the cops — followed by the buckets and the mops. Clean-up time, and then back to the daily grime. How does the MOJO know that it be crazy out dere! Hide wid’/like da Scorpios. Dey knows! Your esoteric ruler (Uranus) is retrograde in fiery Aries, as Mercury retrogrades in opposition to your Sun sign ’til August 7th/8th. Hide… Here comes the Fool Moon in your sign, on the 1st.
l PISCES (2.20-3.20) Trouble at work, Miss Communication? Your boss seems lost! You should be on vacation. Everyone else is…or will seem/prove to be. Watch out for heat stroke — no joke, Michael P. How does/would one study the indecipherable? In the dark? With eyes closed? Bereft of all preconceptions? One has to free one’s self of all hang-ups in order to deserve/discern the truth.
a ARIES (3.21-4.20) You’ve got a month to define, design and find out who deserves your services. Instead of actively searching, pull up/out, close your eyes and meditate on how you could best express your energy and what direction your career should take in about 2 weeks. Ask your friends what kind of roommate you are/make. Time for a surprise, as you look at yourself through others’ eyes.
b TAURUS (4.21-5.20) The money’s there, but out of reach. What’s it trying to teach? Maybe you’re knocking on the right door, but nobody’s answering anymore. The channels of communication seem open enough, yet no one seems to be available to listen. It’s ob(li)viously time for you to meditate. In order to receive, the hand must be open. Meditation is the opening of the hand of the mind.
c GEMINI (5.21-6.21) Even if/when it’s not your fault, here comes the blame game, anyway. Time to hide… Please read Taurus. This is your year of expansion (Jupiter in Gemini), following this period of dissolution (’til August 8th). One must die before one can be reborn, right?
d CANCER (6.22-7.22) Hope you felt/stayed as cool as I did this past month, as the transit through your sign of Cancer was framed by the magique of the 2 Cazimi New Moons on June 19th and July 18th/19th! Very magical! Meditate on this framework, and then initiate your new moneymaking ideas when Mercury moves direct on the Cancer/Leo cusp on August 8th. Potentialize ’til then. Peace and love shall conquer all, my friend… There are no mistakes.
