Daily Astrological Currents Archives

This page is offered as away to look back at the Daily Astrological Currents Archives for a particular day going back to December of 2013.

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.
