Happy Fourth of July weekend to my fellow Americans. If you are out and about as many are wanting to do on this holiday, know that it is, indeed, a Full Moon at 11° Capricorn opposite the Sun at 11° Cancer. Earlier on Monday the Moon passes through the fixed star, Facies, having a notorious reputation of being somewhat two-faced. It is difficult when we are hanging out with friends or colleagues or people, we don’t even know that well, to talk about things that matter and perhaps on a day like today, this is not the time to begin a dialogue about all the things that are not working in the world or within your families.
Heads up because today, Mercury, the planet of communication, is in a hard aspect to Chiron and over the course of the day it can lead you into some heated arguments. Caution is suggested when entering a dialogue that is necessary with someone you need to dialogue. This may not be the day. Set a better time to discuss a few pressing items that need addressing. If you approach it in a positive way, this could be a tremendous learning experience. We all walk fine lines when it comes to communicating with those we love. We just need to pick more optimum times than family events.
The Sun is traveling through Cancer, which is a water sign and more emotional and compassionate than other groupings. However, yesterday Venus and Uranus were in hard aspect to each other, riling up the emotional waters. Surprises – both positive as well as challenging may have come up on Sunday that require addressing. You might have found out something that needs tending and if that is the case, then put it on the docket for a repair at week’s end. Today Mercury is opposite the Moon, set it in a schedule where the Moon has moved along a bit more like on Thursday when Mercury and Uranus work together for more efficient problem solving. Helpers could show up through a series of referrals who have more experience in the challenge you face. Grab the help up.
Watch ankles when walking on rocky trails, wear good support shoes as Mercury squaring Chiron can destabilize footing. We’ve all heard the term ‘weekend warrior’. Maybe put him (or her) in a box until next year when you are in better shape.
I wanted to say thank you to the many people that have booked private appointments. I am very happy to help whom I can. As mentioned earlier in the quarter, I only take a few a week, so there has been a long wait for appointments (Currently booking for October). If one needs to get into an appointment quickly, and cannot wait, I can also refer people to you if needed.
