July 9 - 15

Happy Eclipse Season! Thus begins the grand finale of 2018’s Solar and Lunar Eclipses. Which marks July as one of the most transformative months of the year. Throughout the next three weeks, it’s of critical importance to have a two-fold value. Interact with the next experiences with the tool of "both/and". Yes there will arenas is your life that come to a close, but a new beginning is sure to arrive. When we're in the dark night of the soul, shame tells us the there is no dawn. But rest assured - the dawn will come. 

Venus and Jupiter transits light up the celestial skies this week and a Solar Eclipse in Cancer on Thursday night. On Monday, Love Goddess Venus cozies up to sensual Virgo. Venus will help us crush a bit more on the practical, reliable, consistent, and intelligent suitors for the next three weeks. Venus in Virgo sanitizes your romantic vision clean from adoring the dark and tortured ones for the responsible and ambitious.

On Tuesday, Jupiter ends its a five month retrograde in Scorpio. We’ll feel our inner optimism and outer luck return to not only our summer goals but the way we interact with intimacy, commitment, transformation, and sexuality. Since October 2017, Jupiter has uplifted all of Scorpio’s mighty themes to the forefront of consciousness in the likeness of #MeToo, #TimesUp, Parkland High School shooting, Texas Detention Centers, etc.

Jupiter in Scorpio continues to remind us that until and unless America’s three most life-threatening psychic wounds - race, gender, and class - are righteously ameliorated, so the country will stay in violent white supremacy, abusive patriarchy, and oppressive income-inequality. Through a metaphysician’s eye, you could liken the focus on these events as the necessary prerequisite for its transformation which is its identification as crisis. Now we develop a plan of action under Jupiter’s direct motion in Scorpio.

Speaking of America, a Solar Eclipse in Cancer is exactly conjunct America’s Sun on Thursday. This Solar Eclipse as a New Moon is an exceptionally powerful moment for us to declare our national intentions. I’m a big fan of throwing many solutions at a multicausal problem so give it a try!
