The Cosmic Warrior puts on his dress uniform for six weeks, minding his manners and following protocol as he marches through Venus’ second home. Libran harmony is inimical to the more impulsive Mars, and in this sign he can have difficulty expressing himself directly. Yet with Venus in mutual reception with him for much of the time he’s in the sign of the scales (from 7 November to 1 December), it’s possible that this will be a productive time – bargaining and negotiations with a hint of force, diplomacy from a place of power… an iron fist in a velvet glove?

BLACK, MOON, LILITH, Astrology

When the Black Moon is transiting an astrological sign, the unfinished and unresolved issues concerning the sign emerge. She even acts as an inverter of values, showing us the B side of things. Why the B side? Because Black Moon Lilith is the dimension of the Real (as conceived in Lacanian psychoanalysis), the register of the impossible, of awe, of the raw experienced at the mere level of sensation, unelaborated by images, words and meanings. There is a strangeness to the Black Moon Lilith, something which mobilizes in other ways, as it concerns the visceral undercurrent, the backdrop behind words and images.

In October, out of the Fire Walk that was the August 21 Solar eclipse and the continuing Evolutionary Burn, the Fire Bird – the phoenix – rises from the ashes of 3D dross. During the 3-month arc from the Eclipse Gateway, to the Equinox and on through to the December Solstice the solar activity is being magnified beyond anything yet experienced. We are in the burning fields without a vibrational roof, threading light between higher and lower realities as the amplified Solar flare activity intensifies this Solar-system-wide shift.

The seasons shift once again with 12 hours of daylight hours and 12 of darkness everywhere on planet Earth. The sign of Libra symbolises this balancing act.
Libra’s ruling planet is of course Venus, and she is now located in Virgo, closing in on Mars. The celestial lovers will reunite two weeks after this Equinox for the first time in almost two years.

Mars ends a bold six weeks in Leo on 5 September, taking more cautious steps as he enters Virgo. Mars likes action, while Virgo is a more considerate sign, sometimes given to vacillation and second-guessing. In the sign of the Virgin, Mars sometimes doesn’t know what to do, yet he isn’t given to sitting still, either. A good cause is just the thing to motivate him – and us – to make the most of this six week period.

You have one more chance to make peace with the wild and whacky Uranus- in- Aries energy during the upcoming retrograde period which begins August 3rd at 5:31 am UTC through January 2nd 2018 when it stations direct. It’s time to redo, relive, and reflect upon the past seven years of Uranus in Aries action. With consciousness or not, you can integrate the learning of Uranus. Take what you wish and eliminate the rest.

What we once thought was our truth has left the building. Who we once thought we were is no longer viable in this dimensional flux of change. This summer will definitely rattle our cages. July’s astrology – a potential Molotov cocktail of Mars, Uranus, Pluto, Eris, Haumea + the karmic points -will shine a spotlight on the ever more apparent split time-lines and bifurcation of realities, accelerating us into the Lion’s Gate and the August eclipses. Seen or experienced from 3D, it’s a recipe for personal insecurity, lack of control, tribalism, disruption, rage and volatility. Viewed from a 5D witness perspective the lower reality will feel increasingly surreal, over, done, complete.

What a world you live within these days! So fast, so impersonal, so many mistakes being made because so many are not living their true truth and have fallen asleep within the captive arms of a system that has successfully infiltrated their minds and has them believe that their creative life force is best used to further support the status quo, even if on the pretence of improving it.

What makes you happy? And, what is holding you back from embracing your bliss? These questions and more are about to bubble forth into the collective consciousness as the lunar nodes ingress into the Leo/Aquarius polarity beginning on May 9th 2017. Goodbye to the serve or suffer polarity of Virgo/ Pisces. We are about to embrace a new theme until December of 2018; the role of Individual creativity against the backdrop of group-think.
