The week begins with the Moon and Neptune at cross purposes with each other — in English it means that Monday you may not feel as motivated as you would like to feel. What is motivation, really? First, it is ruled by Mars which is action-oriented, but if we always take actions without allowing time for reaction or processing an idea, we aren’t always thinking about the ‘what ifs’ are we? A Moon square Neptune aspect works well if you allow yourself to take an hour or so during your day without any electronic input while sitting quietly and thinking about some of the things that need sorting. Going for a walk without your phone works or just turning everything off for a few hours and doing something physical works, too. Now that’s a concept! Incubation is the first step for all inspired creations. Unfortunately, with the pace we move in this world, that incubation isn’t always the first step. I often wonder if this is why there are so many copycat themes in film and media. I mean how many Terminators do we really need to see? Why is it all this retro or why are all these remakes in film and television? Give me something new for gosh sakes! It is out there, but we have to take time to tap into it.
The universe is filled with an unlimited amount of creative energy, but we cannot access it unless we take time to allow it to come into our consciousness. Think about it. Think about your day. Are you one of the people that upon arising turns on the radio, television, phone, computer? Are you one of those folks that turn them all off just before sleep? If so, your sleep state gets charged with pre-sleep electronic images — not so good if you want to have a good night of rest. There is an entire universe out waiting for each individual’s consciousness to open to its fertile offerings. As the Full Moon approaches on Friday July 31 at 7° Aquarius 56′ it provides an opening for exactly that. Uranus loves to think outside the box and loves group conversations or classes or gatherings to exchange ideas. Remember each person is a human receiver and there is a greater cosmic mind out there. If you actually go out and visit with real human beings, that is the first step to accessing that fertile imagination. Everyone gets their portion of the information here and there, so can you imagine if all those ideas were to come together in a simple visit with likeminded friends? The possibilities are endless!
