Monday JULY 23 through July 29

Astrological Highlights for the week: Mercury retrogrades in Leo on Wednesday; Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on Friday.

My mind is literally spinning with ideas generated by looking at the cosmic dance for this week. It’s mind boggling, really. Mercury the communicator moves into a retrograde pattern in self-expressive Leo. This is concurrent with Mars also moving retrograde in the opposite sign of Aquarius. The Leo/Aquarius axis is further highlighted with a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius on Friday.

The number of planetary interactions associated with this eclipse lends richness to the events of this week and beyond. There is disruption and surprise (Uranus the awakener squaring Mars, Moon, Sun and both lunar nodes); plenty of raw material for new and long-lasting foundations (Saturn aligning with Uranus); the opportunity to review past events and release negative patterns for good (Mars, Moon and South Node conjunct in Aquarius); and a golden window of possibilities to truly tap into our personal self-expression and sense of what gives us hope and joy (Sun conjunct North Node in Leo). Just to name a few!

Hopefully I’ve done an adequate job of piquing your interest enough to read the dailies that follow. Here, I’m going to spotlight the highlights and my take away, at least for the moment of what it all means. Eclipses are harbingers of change and Mercury retrograde is a time to review our ideas so I fully expect to change my mind by the end of the week!

Mercury retrogrades are so much more than overworked clichés about miscommunications, computer glitches and messed up plans. As retrograding planets encourage us to go inward, think of this as a time to be sparing of words and let your actions and deeds speak for you. It’s very possible words will carry little weight during this time and may even add to confusion and lack of clarity. My advice is: Talk less and do more. This is an opportunity to tap deeply into ourselves and emerge with more authentic self-expression.

The Full Moon in Aquarius is called “the Friendship Moon” by astrologer Raven Kaldera. And indeed, this Full Moon which is also a Lunar Eclipse may help us attract the perfect friends, associates, and allies as Venus in discerning and clear Virgo forges an alliance with transformational Pluto in serious Capricorn just hours later. Be advised: Full Moons and especially ones that are also Eclipses signal the fulfillment or completion of a theme, a project, or phase in our lives. Occurring on the Aquarius / Leo axis (Sun in Leo, Moon in Aquarius) issues of personal identity, feelings of alienation or belonging, and alliances are likely to arise and be significant indicators for the future.

The possibilities to increase self awareness and turn around some unsatisfying trends in our lives are practically endless with the conspiring energies this week. It’s up to each of us to consciously seek our inner truth, our source of purpose and joy, and set an intention for greater self-expression. There are allies aplenty; think seriously about your friendships and associations. Are they serving you and your higher purpose? We become like the people we hang out with. What are they saying about us and our goals? It’s easy to fall into a place of feeling alone, alienated, or out of place. Frankly folks, that’s the human condition! If you are looking for your soul group, your “people”, open your eyes. They are here and they are everywhere.

Until next week, let go and wear loose clothes.

NOTE: *FOR THE DAILY FORECAST, ALL TIMES LISTED ARE FOR PACIFIC TIME ZONE.

MONDAY
JULY 23
MOON in SAGITTARIUS

Thought for the Day: Seek truth with an open mind and innocent heart

The Moon in Sagittarius is a student of life; but even the best students can get a bit heady now and then, believing their truth is the only truth. With lunar squares to Venus in pragmatic Virgo and Neptune in spiritual and nebulous Pisces, it may be hard to “stick with our story”, and not be influenced by changing landscapes and scenarios. Look for your personal truth within; AND allow new information to influence you. Under the influence of scholarly and truth-seeking Sagittarius, we can choose to be open minded and let intuition mix and mingle with our rational minds.

This is a good day to consider wisdom from the past, or to seek advice from credible and proven sources. Do you have a hero or mentor you look to? Don’t limit yourself to people in your personal circle. Historical figures can inspire your heart and stimulate your thinking. If you believe you already know everything worth knowing, life can get pretty routine and boring. Stretch yourself.

Daily Muse: Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
(George Bernard Shaw)

TUESDAY
JULY 24
MOON in SAGITTARIUS/CAPRICORN

MOON Goes Void of Course at 1:22am enters CAPRICORN 2:49pm

Thought for the Day: Mid-day romantic fantasies delight; getting some work done this afternoon and evening is what will satisfy tonight

Hope springs eternal under the growing light of the Sagittarius Moon. Seeing what we want to see is both a blessing and a danger today as Venus the planet of love and attraction gets caught in the dreamy web of Neptune mid-day. But just because we might be under the influence of the planet of compassion and higher ideals doesn’t mean that attractive stranger isn’t checking us out and vice versa!

Neptune can hold a shimmering screen of possibilities before our eyes. Our desire to fill a perceived hole in our lives with a person, relationship, new toy, or other acquisition is probably a short-lived fantasy; enjoy the vision while keeping your expectations in check. The better we know ourselves and have faith in our ability to create satisfaction and happiness, the more likely it is, we will attract exactly the right people and circumstances into our lives. The Sun also makes a healing connection to Chiron today, helping us feel compassion for ourselves and others. Focus on connecting with others in positive ways rather than coming from a place of emptiness and needing to be completed or healed by another.

The Moon’s entry into no-nonsense Capricorn in mid-afternoon gets our feet and hearts back on the ground with reminders of necessary and important tasks. A lunar connection to innovative Uranus eases the load with novel ways to approach our work and responsibilities. The Moon’s connection to Saturn tonight is sobering. We will feel satisfied if we have accomplished something today and not let our time be completely spent in daydreams or fantasies. Of course, knowing this early in the day helps!

Daily Muse: If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart. (Nelson Mandela)

WEDNESDAY
JULY 25
MOON IN CAPRICORN

MERCURY BEGINS RETROGRADE 10:03PM

Thought for the Day: Mercury retrograde: let your behavior speak for you

Thinking about the old cliché about “finding myself”, do you ever stop to think what that means and how you lost yourself in the first place? A question way too existential and heady for a quick and superficial review! I’ll let you ponder that according to your own desire and curiosity. Nevertheless, this theme of our relationship with ourselves is front and center today compliments of several different planets and interactions.

Very early this morning the Sun which represent ego and our identity squares off with Uranus the poster child for individuality and revolution. Uranus represents our urge to free ourselves from anyone and anything that limits our potential. How closely is our ego bound up with traditions and rules, and how do we feel about conformity and about breaking the rules? As the Sun in dramatic Leo conflicts with Uranus in conservative Taurus in early morning we probably wake up feeling defiant. An unwelcome alarm clock or beeping cell phone might just go flying across the room!

Throughout the day Mercury is appearing to come to a standstill as it stops in its tracks tonight as the beginning of a three week retrograde pattern in Leo. Leo is the opposite sign of Aquarius, the sign Uranus rules, and Leo is also a square (think conflicting with) Taurus, which is the current location of Uranus. Ok I know this is way too much Astrology lingo for most, so I will give it a rest. Please keep reading.

Bottom line: we start the day on a rebellious note that probably is tapping into feelings of being trapped, bound up, stuck, or limited in some way. As Mercury starts its trek backwards in the self-expressive sign of Leo we get the chance to identify self-defeating attitudes and feelings and free ourselves from pessimistic and negative thinking.

This is likely to be a powerful and profound retrograde pattern. It comes in conjunction with the on-going Mars retrograde and the potent forces ushered in by multiple eclipses. As retrograding planets encourage us to go inward, think of this as a time to be sparing of words and let your actions and deeds speak for you. It’s very possible words will carry little weight during this time and may even add to confusion and lack of clarity. Consider your purpose and your intention. Talk less and do more.

Daily Muse: The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. (C.G. Jung)

THURSDAY
JULY 26
MOON in CAPRICORN

MOON Goes Void of Course at 6:41am enters AQUARIUS FRIDAY 3:41am

Thought for the Day: Decisions, decisions!

The Moon in Capricorn is void of course from early morning and throughout the rest of the day and evening. This is not a time to be idle even if it isn’t the best time to launch into something new. With the Sun making difficult connections again today, (inconjunct Saturn and opposing Mars) we might be feeling a bit anxious, unsettled, and torn between two things or two places. It could be between the past and the present, the present and the future, or have to do with decisions we are trying to make. We may not have all the information we need, or may feel ill-prepared to make a choice. However, we can find peace of mind by changing our attitude. Life rarely holds guarantees; if we are waiting for one, we are likely to wait a long time!

The Mercury retrograde pattern is a fertile time to develop greater trust in ourselves and a chance to appreciate ourselves in a new way. This includes trusting and defending our choices. This doesn’t include being defensive or an inability to change your mind. It means recognizing and capitalizing on our strengths and finding ways to minimize our weaknesses. Not hiding, or denying! Now is the time to develop new habits that include positive self-talk and consciously tapping into what makes us feel joyful.

Daily Muse: I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become. (C.G. Jung)

FRIDAY
JULY 27
MOON IN CAPRICORN/AQUARIUS

MOON enters AQUARIUS 3:41am
LUNAR ECLIPSE 5º AQUARIUS 1:20pm

Thought for the Day: We become like the people we hang out with

The Full Moon in Aquarius is called “the Friendship Moon” by astrologer Raven Kaldera. And indeed, this Full Moon which is also a Lunar Eclipse may help us attract the perfect friends, associates, and allies as Venus in discerning and clear Virgo forges an alliance with transformational Pluto in serious Capricorn just hours later. Be advised: Full Moons and especially ones that are also Eclipses signal the fulfillment or completion of a theme, a project, or phase in our lives. Occurring on the Aquarius / Leo axis (Sun in Leo, Moon in Aquarius) issues of personal identity, feelings of alienation or belonging, and alliances are likely to arise and be significant indicators for the future.

The number of planetary interactions associated with this eclipse lends richness to the events of today and this week. There is disruption and surprise (Uranus the awakener squaring Mars, Moon, Sun and both nodes); plenty of raw material for new and long-lasting foundations (Saturn aligning with Uranus); the opportunity to review past events and release negative patterns for good (Mars, Moon and South Node conjunct); and a golden window of possibilities to truly tap into our personal self-expression and sense of what gives us hope and joy (Sun conjunct North Node). Just to name a few!

The possibilities to increase self awareness and turn around some unsatisfying trends in our lives are practically endless with the conspiring energies today. It’s up to each of us to consciously seek our inner truth and set an intention for greater self-expression. There are allies aplenty; think seriously about your friendships and associations. Are they serving you and your higher purpose? It’s easy to fall into a place of feeling alone, alienated, or out of place. Frankly folks, that’s the human condition! If you are looking for your soul group, your “people”, open your eyes. They are here and they are everywhere.

Daily muse: George Bernard Shaw (playwright) to Winston Churchill, “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play; bring a friend…if you have one.” Churchill reportedly responded, “Cannot possibly attend first night; will attend second, if there is one.”

SATURDAY
JULY 28
MOON in AQUARIUS

Thought for the Day: Appreciation

Coming off the high energy of yesterday we may be feeling more energized about putting the past behind us and moving forward. The Moon basking in social Aquarius reminds us of the importance of sharing our lives in meaningful ways with others. Although Aquarius can sometimes be the Lone Ranger, that’s not the ideal for this visionary sign that seeks to change the world. Today is a good day to remember friends, make some new ones, network, and build alliances.

The Sun makes a perfect union with the North node in Leo today, with a strong encouragement for each of us to feel comfortable in our own skins. Think of this as “permission to appreciate”. I personally think the idea of self-love is so overdone and besides who really knows what it means. But can we resonate with the idea of learning to appreciate who we are? In the same way we keep gratitude journals, maybe we can start a habit of self-appreciation and identify at least one thing each day that we appreciate about ourselves and our lives. It’s kind of funny really how some of the things we like best about ourselves, others consider our faults! How short-sighted people can be!

Daily Muse: There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self. (Ernest Hemingway)


SUNDAY
JULY 29
MOON IN AQUARIUS/PISCES

MOON Goes Void of Course at 2:25am enters PISCES 4:28pm

Thought for the Day: Let the revolution begin with you

The Moon in revolutionary Aquarius is void of course throughout the day until it slides into sweet Pisces in late afternoon. This could be an easy peasy day socializing and chatting about big plans to improve our lives or reform the world. Revolutionaries unite over brunch!

The Moon in impressionable Pisces creates a softer energy for the evening although lunar alliances with Uranus and Saturn keep us dreaming of plans to put into place another day. Foundation building includes a dream and a vision. Keep the imagination flowing. An evening that includes movies, creativity, planning or study is an evening well spent.

Daily Muse: There is no passion to be found playing small - in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living…It always seems impossible until it is done. (Nelson Mandela)

I heard someone say the other day that you couldn't be unhappy or angry if you smiled. Even if you don’t feel like it, plaster a smile on your face and it won't take long before it changes your mood. I have a tendency to think while in the shower, and it occurred to me that I wasn't in a particularly good mood, so I decided to give the hypothesis a try.

I got out of the shower, dried off and went directly to the mirror, where I glared at myself for a few seconds. I certainly wasn't smiling, but neither was I frowning nor morose. It seemed like a good time to try out the experiment. I forced my face into a grin, but only succeeded in creating an expression that would make children cry. I gave it another shot, this time not being quite so intense. I tried for one of those “Dutch Masters” smiles. You know the one, that slight turn up of the corners of the mouth that occurs when thinking of something slightly naughty.

So there I was, a bit of a “come hither” look upon my face, hair frizzed out, and naked. (I urge delicate readers to immediately put this image out of their minds, as it could cause night terrors.) It was simply too much to bear, and I burst into laughter, a guffaw that came from within and made me wonder about my general sanity. I still don't know if the theory about a forced smile is true, but it sure worked in that instance, in part because I'm so weird.

A smile makes a difference. We seem to be dealing with a time when there doesn’t appear to be all that much to smile about, although that isn't completely true. We actually have a great deal to smile about, it's just that the opportunities to do so can be fleeting, unless we seek them out.

The good news is that in this age of streaming media, there’s no lack of resources for something to smile about. I’m a fan of the Three Stooges. It's been a lifelong affliction, but one I'm grateful for. I can watch them whenever I please, one of the true miracles of the modern age. A few seconds of watching Shemp shave makes me laugh like a hyena.

When I'm really blue, I can watch, "Moses Supposes His Tozes Are Roses," from Singin’ in the Rain, or Donald O'Connor's amazing dance routine to, "Make ‘Em Laugh."

The Marx Brothers never fail to delight me. Duck Soup is probably my favorite film of theirs, although it’s certainly hard to pick just one. At one point, Groucho, as Rufus T Firefly, the completely inept new ruler of a country, sings a song about his new administration. Here’s a lyric sample.

“The last man nearly ruined this place, he didn't know what to do with it. If you think this country's bad off now, just wait till I get through with it."

It helps to know that there is very little new under the sun, and it makes me laugh.

Whether you decide to stand in front of a mirror and experiment with the body mind connection of smiling, or seek out a lovely old episode of Mr. Rogers to watch, I advise seeking out a smile or two every single day. I smile a lot when I broadcast my radio show, I like to think that my listeners are smiling, too. Of course, it's entirely possible that I'm not nearly as amusing to others as I am to myself, but that, in itself, oddly brings a smile to my lips.

Until next week, I wish you all peace and love.

Avoiding Avoidance

Staying Strong

I have been hosting talk radio for 8 years. I love radio, fell in love on my first live show and have been talking on the air waves ever since. Our first incarnation of the The Psychic Sisters was a call in show on Blogtalk Radio. On that first show we had 10 callers. I have never been so overwhelmed in my life as I was that day, watching the call queue fill up. I was unprepared for how radio would affect my energy. I never really thought about what it meant to have all of those people, people I didn’t know, plugging in to me during the show. After the show I was exhausted, drained. This seemed strange to me because radio was such a positive experience. It took me a while to figure out the energy dynamics of radio. People listening felt connected to what I had to say, plugged in to me during the show, and afterward I was exhausted. I learned that I needed to push my energy out into the world as I spoke on the radio, sending a big burst of love and positivity to everyone listening. This way I could share who I am, inspire others, and come away from radio feeling energized. This is energy resilience. Using our thoughts to control our energy bodies for a positive result is key to resilience.

I have been teaching for a long time that our thoughts control the function of our energy bodies. This can happen intentionally or unconsciously. It happens no matter what, but learning to direct our energy with conscious intent gives a whole new level of control over ourselves. Here are a few examples from my own experiences.

While working in my metaphysical store I occasionally had a customer walk in the door who I knew immediately had ill intent for me. I could feel it emanating from them in waves. In my mind I slammed my energy door shut, closing off energy interaction between me and the other person. This kept me safe from energy attack, attachment or whatever else the person intended. There are all kinds of people in the world, and not all of them have our best interest at heart. It is ok to close yourself off for protection. Your energy door should never stay closed, it is a short-term solution meant for protection. Closing yourself off long term will damage your relationships, distance you from people in a way you don’t want.

While working as a social worker I discovered that many of my clients were plugging their energy extension cords into me. They struggled with emotional problems and felt safe and stable with me. That is a good thing, but I couldn’t allow someone to take my life force energy. That is not healthy for anyone. I learned to send life force energy to them, love from my heart, while with them in order to help them and protect me.

I am an empath and have a tendency to pick up emotional energy from all the people I come into contact with. I discovered that my bubble, the energy that emanates from me to my arm’s length, would fill up with other people’s emotional energy. This bubble is meant to be my own energy, it is what I use to interact with the world. It was very confusing when that field of energy was loaded with other people’s emotions. I learned that draining the extra emotional energy from my bubble every day kept me feeling bright and clear, vibrating high and sure of my own needs and desires.

These are a few examples of energy resilience that I use regularly. Join me on Friday, 7/27 for Kindred Spirits at 10 am PST on 12radio.com. I will be sharing more about energy resilience and teaching skills that we can all use to develop energy resilience.

I see, I love, you matter!

July 23rd invites a wonderful & amazing transition into Leo Season. Yay!!!! Some people wait all year for this. Leo Season is warm, confident and buzzing with romantic and creative energy to allow your Summer to be the most amazing season of the year!!!

As Cancer Season comes to an end, it may feel like a break down before the break through. But don't worry-- what's breaking down is your isolation, fears, insecurities and inability to follow through on your dreams.

Some are more affected by this energy than others. However it hit you- it hit you! Ir made you uncomfortable enough to FIGHT with everything you have, including your Guides, for what IS yours!!!

We were nourished by our own sense of The Mother, the Divine Feminine. The most important take away: Beating ourselves up DOESN'T WORK!!!! We need love, light and FIRE to being forth our best lives. Cue-- Leo Fire Power!!!!

Ever noticed how a Leo lights up a room? When they come into a party... they ARE the party!!! If you've ever dated one, you might be rolling your eyes. You remember how they could stand in front of a mirror for hours, can be stubborn and egotistical. Yet let us remember the good qualities: the penchant veneration of fun, the laughter, the sense of family & community. Leo ENERGY, just like Cancer, brings assets into our life that are ESSENTIAL to our higher consciousness.

Leo represents the birth of authenticity. Have you ever met a person so unapologetic & fully accepting of themselves? Most likely, they were a Leo! No one bounces back like a Leo. No one has fun like a Leo. And certainly, no one is as charismatic and beautiful... (even more so, according to them LOL).

If this frightens you, GREAT! The humble, work orientated will benefit greatly from this energy. The idea is to allow your inner warrior. Your inner lion, ROAR with complete acceptance and glory!

The reason Leo's are so significant is because they are closely related to their higher consciousness. They know what they want-- and are going to get it! The thorn they have in their paw is a radical self-sufficiency. Allow for this to be a communal effort and you will SHINE like no other time in your life.

This is the time to abandon all the reasons why it WON'T WORK... And make it work! Utilize your Guides, loved ones, angel's and all the karmic forces on your side.
If you've been working on a project- you will complete it. If you've been seeking a lover, you will find them. If you've been trying to get fit, you will be fit. This is the time!!!

With Big Hugs of Love,
Grace
