THE TURNING POINT
Uranus slips into its retrograde season on Thursday, and on the same day a Sun/Jupiter opposition brings a profound perspective to hard decisions you’ve been trying to make. You’ll see the way forward now this week as Venus finds comfort in her natural sign of Libra. The Full Moon in Aquarius on Sunday at 2:19am central time, closes out the excitement of the summer as the Sun moves into Virgo. Things begin to fall into place now and we have the chance to do some further housekeeping in our lives… out with the old, in with the new.
This Full Moon falls at 29 degrees, which is known as a critical degree, a turning point. An important cycle is coming to a close in your life. The more you allow new information and perspectives into your consciousness, the easier it will be to see which way to chart your course for the next phase. To set intentions, use the words “I release all things that keep me separate from… (whatever your desires are).”
The Sabian Symbol for 29 degrees Aquarius is “Moon-lit fields, once Babylon, are blooming white”. Lynda Hill, who wrote the book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees of Wisdom, describes 29 degrees Aquarius as…”learning from the past, possibly great civilizations like ‘Babylon’, and taking the seeds from the past and making even greater achievements in your own time and place. Even though the grandeur of the past may be lost, changed or damaged by war or time, the energy and power remains. This Symbol reflects the permanence of the natural essence of a place, a person, an idea or a civilization. You may feel that you are in the right place at the right time. Your best qualities are recognized and appreciated. When you are following a true path, you are able to rely on the support of the universe in its flow. Rewards coming from efforts of past generations. Ancestors surrounding. Seeds of the past becoming the fruits of the present. The middle east. Fruits of culture. Artifacts. The Caution: Destroying ancient lands or monuments and the old through religious beliefs or greed. Projecting the sins of the world onto people or places that are foreign.”
If you were born on the 21st or 22nd or have planets at that critical degree, this could be a huge time of release and deep soul maturity. If you want to learn more about this powerful Moon, listen to our podcast on Talk Cosmos. I wish you all a peaceful, productive week!
Aries (March 21-April 20) You’re called into action when a team effort needs some focus and direction. If financial concerns are weighing on your mind, throw yourself into this humanitarian cause. You’re racking up good karma points and you know full well Universe will reward you.
Taurus (April 21-May 20) Your ability to think all the way through a project lands you an opportunity at work to organize rapidly changing events. Regardless of a lack of cooperation from the technology involved, you’ll handle this new role with ease and grace.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) Sometimes what we have to do isn’t what we want to do. Ethical and moral decisions rise throughout this week, making you feel like running away. However you’re more ready for these challenges than you think. The last year has brought you incredible maturity and vision so don’t lose sight of the impact every moment has on your future.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) If you’re feeling as though you “have no choice” in a financial matter, think again. There is always something you can do, it just might not be what you think. Get other opinions and carefully consider them. This week for you lessons are about power and where you’re giving yours up too easily.
Leo (July 23-August 22) Fast moving events at work can make communication tricky with co-workers. Stay on top of emails. Budgeting for the next month may cause some tension with a partner, but practical solutions for purchases and projects are right in your face if you stay detached from your “feelings” about it.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) Consolidate your time, possessions, finances and schedule. That’s what you’ll be trying to do all week. Keep at it even when things shift quickly and throw you off a bit. Avoid trying to cram too much into your day just to check off the to-do list. Deal with one thing at a time and by week’s end when the Sun moves into your sign late Sunday (Happy Birthday Virgos), you’ll be ready to relax with a clean house, and a manageable calendar.
Libra (September 23-October 22) Avoiding an argument may not be possible early in the week, so if you’re drawn into (don’t go looking for it!) a situation, remember you have many choices in how to respond. Take the high road. When the Full Moon trines your Sun over the weekend, a relationship with someone you almost passed by could leave you breathless.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) Scorpios may feel the emotional roller coaster more intensely now. Check on your fellow Scorpios throughout the week! Overall this isn’t a “bad” week, just full of a lot of pushes and pulls in different directions and if you allow the shifts to overwhelm you, it may take longer to come back to center, so be flexible. Meditation and grounding practices will serve you best now. The Virgo sextile energy from Mercury and Mars and the Sun on Sunday helps you think more pragmatically about the long term results of this turning point.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) A minor mistake at work could turn into a big problem if you don’t step up and take responsibility quickly. Hiding it or trying to fix an issue before it’s revealed won’t work as well as it may have in the past. Keep a detached view on everything at work now. Communication needs to be well prepared in order to avoid being dragged into someone else’s drama.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) This may be your “herding cats” week. Lay out your plans and have a plan b for everything and be cool with it. Finances may take a minor hit but you’ll quickly turn that around with your uncanny ability to source income through moving investments around or getting rid of things you no longer need through online marketplaces.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) It may be time to “cash in” on some favors you’re owed in order to find a solution to a problem you’ve been dealing with for weeks. Use your charm to win over new connections. And don’t forget to win over your partner by reminding them of how much they mean to you. A little romance goes a long way now and doing something fun helps you let go of unnecessary worrying.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) If you’re not sure how to approach someone about an issue, wait until Friday when a friendly gesture opens the line of communication. Until then, let it go and focus on stepping back and doing your inner work. You’ll need to longer than normal to recharge if you have to people too much this week.
