Love Overcomes Negativity – Week of July 12-18 2017

This week begins with the Moon in the last decant (10 degree division) of Aquarius, the fixed air sign concerned with universality and causes for humanitarian concerns. The Moon then traverses Pisces, the mutable water sign of universal empathy, then Aries the initiator and adventurous sign of goal orientation, and finally into Taurus on the 18th of July  as we catch our breaths and count our blessings, the Moon forms a trine aspect to Pluto for energy regeneration.  The Sun in Cancer throughout the week, helps to develop emotional satisfaction.  Working toward goals large or small can be successful this week.

Summary of major aspects of the week:

Wednesday July 12th– The Moon in Aquarius is sextile (60 deg, friendly aspect) to Uranus in Aries, as more radical ideas can be adjusted or even made acceptable. Chiron is at the midpoint of the sextile, with a semi-sextile to both the Moon and Uranus. Also, Uranus is the dispositor of the Moon in Aquarius. More beneficial agreements may be suitable to reduce misunderstandings. As the Moon enters Pisces it is trine aspect (120 deg favorable) to Ceres at 0 deg Cancer, an indication of abundance in the cycle of the harvest to help the famine areas of the world.  Jupiter, however, is quincunx to Neptune in Pisces, as problematic situations remain with regard to distribution.

Thursday July 13th – The Moon in Pisces is in a square aspect (90 deg harsh) to Venus in Gemini, spurring or spurning a possible love affair, before Venus reaches the conjunction to Neptune and the quincunx to Jupiter in Libra. Attractions exist, and may be all-consuming. In order to achieve goals, social or personal, remember the rules of the game. With Mercury in Leo, the Moon quincunx Mercury and Jupiter, the situation necessitates diplomacy and caution to achieve the prize. Too rapid a maneuver could offend the prospective love or the desired end.

Friday July 14thSaturn in Sag and the Moon in Pisces are square (90 deg aspect) to each other. Saturn quincunx (150 deg aspect) the Sun in Cancer  is a creative relationship, while the Moon in Pisces trine (120 deg aspect flowing) to the Sun and Mars in Cancer may glow in response to the attraction. Deep feelings emerge in a limited and mature way, with Saturn’s square aspect (90 deg harsh) to the Moon in Pisces ( an aspect of 2-3 hours duration) and quincunx aspect (150 deg quixotic) to the Sun (1-2 day duration). While the aspects’ duration is limited, the consequences may be greater if the individuals involved are affected through relationships to natal planets. The Moon and Chiron trine aspect (120 deg flowing)  to Mars for example, could motivate an expression of deeper feelings and understanding if two or more individuals share the contacts in a positive way in their own natal charts and experience. Individuals may be motivated to express deeper concerns. The Moon enters Aires for a change of pace later in the day.

Saturday July 15th – The Moon in Aries is a celebratory mood with trine (120 deg) aspects to Mercury in Leo and Saturn in Sag.  Enjoyment must be limited and focused with a positive Saturn influence, and avoid the over indulgence that brings regret (the outcome of the negative Saturn).  Self-imposed restrictions should guide one to a safer harbor at the end of the day. The Moon’s opposition to Jupiter is promotes temptations, with Pluto in Capricorn square aspect (90 deg) to the Moon and to Jupiter, legal complications may be involved. Over- indulgence leads to its predictable conclusion.  

Sunday July 16th – The effect of the limits imposed or restrictions that are effective prove beneficial. An outbreak of violence or rebelliousness with Mars square aspect (90 deg harsh) to Uranus could lead to reversals and upsets. Mercury in Leo in a quincunx aspect to Pluto and disposited of by Jupiter in Libra could try to settle affairs amicably, with personal influence, however the task is difficult and not likely to be successful. As a result status could be affected (Moon square to the Sun). Play it safe this weekend. Radical or unwise actions can lead to a lot of difficulty.  Enjoy the day in a safe environment.

Monday July 17th – The Moon in Taurus is in a sextile (60 degree friendly) aspect to Ceres early in the day as loss or discomfort seeks soothing measures. The fixed earth sign of Taurus helps to revive the physical energy to move on through the day. Work to replace the lost time and rebuild health. Venus makes a square aspect (90 deg harsh) to Neptune as those you love may spurn advances, or you may feel enmeshed in emotional conflicts. Venus also approaches a trine aspect (120 deg easy) to Jupiter, as compatibility and communication flows from personal attraction to a harmonious relationship.

Tuesday July 18th– The Moon continues in the earth sign Taurus today, forming a trine aspect (120 deg flowing) to Pluto. If fears are overcome, and the dreaded consequences have not come to pass, this is a time of strengthening. The Moon is in a square aspect to Mercury in Leo, although in Taurus the Moon’s dispositor is Venus, so that friendly communication can be advantageous. Releasing your personal experience can help to strengthen your through catharsis. Venus trine Jupiter continues today resulting in a positive experience. Fences can be mended and friendships reciprocated. Love is not lost after all.
