Saturday July 14, 2018

There may be elements of fate or destiny involved in today's activity. Obstacles surface and there is a tendency to doubt ourselves or fail to fully embrace our individual power. It is easy to lose ourselves in the problems of others — especially those in our family or close inner circle. As well, we are acutely aware of our appearance and what our actions might look like to others. However, there is also extraordinary capacity to adapt and adjust to difficult circumstances and, in the process, find powerful and long-lasting alliances that help us to keep frustration at bay and plan for future progress. It is especially important today to pay close attention to the company we are keeping and consider if their encouragement or admonitions are moving us in the right direction or sending us straight off a cliff.



Weekly Summary

JULY 8 - JULY 14

"People need trouble -- a little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it."
— William Faulkner

The seeds of profound frustration are sown this week and are likely to be fully apparent by Thursday's Cancer New Moon (7:57 PM PDT 20° Cancer). Mercury has entered the shadow of the next retrograde period (July 27th - August 19). As well, Mars is now retrograde and won't turn direct until August 27th, leaving us without effective levers to effect direct action. There are likely to be serious temptations to demonstrate our frustrations with explosive outbursts — or more. With Mercury in dramatic and demonstrative Leo, we may seek to display our feelings with extra flair and flourishes — even bombastic emphasis. However, no matter what pronouncements we may make or demands we issue, we are not likely to feel the kind of satisfaction or see the kind of action we are trying to effect. It may not be easy to find gratitude for the kind of slow-downs that we see this week. There are strong temptations (especially as the Cancer New Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn) to place blame squarely on others and the outside world instead of seeking ways to resolve the inner struggles which keep us feeling frustrated and — to some extent — shut down and stymied. This is essentially a spiritual journey even though it may be completely understandable to become frustrated with any number of given circumstances. When we are blocked by road construction. Are we better off to scream at the one holding the stop sign or might we take the opportunity to look around and perhaps notice things we might never have seen without being asked to stop and wait? Of course, what if we decide to ignore the sign and plow ahead? Won't that get us into an even worse situation? These are the questions we must ask ourselves this week and through the extended period, through August, while Mars and Mercury are retrograde and whispering that we look at trying something profoundly different.

Even though there there is plenty of inspiration available on Sunday, attempts to make tangible progress begin to sow the seeds of frustration. Monday's unstable energy is seen in numerous demands and pronouncements that display stubborn determination but little action. It isn't easy to find a productive give-and-take. There is a tendency to seek retreat — if not surrender — on Tuesday as our confidence wanes. Activity increases on Wednesday. Jupiter stations to turn direct, offering a hint of optimism and a glimpse of a big picture perspective. The Cancer New Moon, opposing Pluto, on Thursday seems to set up a significant stand-off. Frustrated explosions are possible. However, we find a more free-flowing atmosphere on Friday, despite the undercurrent of developing frustration. By Saturday, the obstacles begin to seem intractable. However, we're likely to find that we're somewhat concerned over how we appear to others. As a result, any outbursts may be moderated and constrained. It is also important on Saturday to take a good look at who we're associating with and how well they're serving our best interests.

Sunday July 15, 2018

We get a reprieve from last week's particularly daunting frustration today. The Moon is VOC this morning until 10:30 AM PDT. Once the Moon arrives in Virgo, we gain increased confidence to move forward and begin 'taking care of business' with a surprising degree of competence and success. We also gain a new, practical perspective on ideas that hadn't quite fallen into place before today. Even if obstacles do surface, there is plenty of awareness to quickly resolve issues and continue forward.



Weekly Summary

JULY 15 - JULY 21

"For fast acting relief, try slowing down."
— Lily Tomlin

Many of us feel some benefit from a distinct slow down in the pace this week, helping to somewhat ease the frustration that began to build last week. Nonetheless, whenever the activity picks up at all, we may be easily put off balance. We will need to rely on tried and true principles and maintain our integrity in order to avoid any impulsive, emotional outbursts — which could quickly spiral out of control. As Mercury begins to slow down to turn retrograde on July 27th, we will begin to recognize that our intuition is more reliable than our intellect. Confusion and suspicions may easily lead us astray. However, if we are able to listen to the still small voice of intuition whispering to let it go, we'll find that we've been able to make remarkably productive headway this week. In particular, there are opportunities to provide service and support to others. In general, a practical, methodical approach will help us to take the time we need to understand complicated situations and unravel a myriad of challenging situations. Essentially, the more that we can adopt a slow and easy does it approach, the more we can help both ourselves and others to stay away from frustration or the temptation to blame others for our circumstances — instead of digging in and doing what we can to make things better.

Sunday's Virgo Moon makes a stabilizing Grand Earth Trine to Saturn and Uranus, easing last week's frustration a bit. The Virgo inclination towards service helps to increase our confidence into Monday. There is patient resolve to move forward at a slower, manageable pace. However, by Tuesday afternoon, activity heats up and we may be quickly thrown off balance. We need to listen to our intuition telling us to slow down and/or back off. Last week's standoff resurfaces on Wednesday and some may turn to martyrdom. Even so, there are important opportunities for resolutions by paying attention and staying with the process. The more pressure we feel on Thursday, the more opportunities we will find. Nonetheless, relationship challenges are not quickly resolved until later in the day. We may be tempted to push too hard on Friday, even though confusion and suspicion is rampant. We'll do better to focus on long-term goals and planning, avoiding becoming too wrapped up in looking for quick solutions. We're likely to look for some kind of cover on Saturday, keeping our thoughts to ourselves instead of taking the chance of having to explain ourselves. We'll want to be especially cautious if we feel the need to even some score or get revenge.

Monday July 16, 2018

Yesterday's confidence is aimed toward being of service today. There is increased persistence to provide effective assistance to those who need our help. We seem to find extra patience to understand complicated situations and help others to begin to unravel difficult obstacles with a practical, methodical approach. Of course, there may be some tendency to overreach or interfere without fully understanding the intricacies of the problems and challenges of others. Nonetheless, the overall pace of activity seems to have slowed down enough to help us avoid pushing too hard. As well, our endurance is improved by the slower pace and the previously frustrating atmosphere, helping to keep us on track and moving in the right direction — albeit slowly.
