This coming Friday, July 27, heated Mars will conjunct a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius as well as the South Node, the symbol for the past, which can be Soul jolting with life potentially carrying a high degree of unpredictability. Being that this eclipse is in the sign of Aquarius creates even greater electricity, and thus uncertainty. Uranus, the ruler of Aquarius, is also squaring Mars and the eclipse point. If that wasn’t enough, Mercury stations retrograde in Leo on Wednesday, July 25.
In the town where I live, a lightening storm occurred in the heat of summer and fifty fires erupted in the mountains that surround us in Southern Oregon, filling this entire county with a dense smoke, making it difficult to breathe. I heard on the radio yesterday that our little area had the worst air quality in the entire country as a result, just to give you one microcosmic example. These trends also speak to the triggering of volcanoes or the potential for earthquakes.
Emotionally jarring experiences may also occur. As in my example above, events can happen well before the actual day of the eclipse as we have entered a highly sensitive and combustive energetic window. Mars is opposing the Sun and is in its closest proximity to Earth since 2003, creating the feeling like you are sitting on a live wire or living on a fault line.
Prana doesn’t wait
as you scrape your jaw off the ground
or crawl back into your skin
and realign your bones
There’s no saying: stop nor:wait
for the right moment when essence is so immediate
Prana wants all of you.
Now. in the heat of the cold
and the murk of the awe
In light captured crystal
solid as a waterfall
in the moon that is full.

But you all know me well enough by now to know that my flashlight of insight will never leave you without a way through. No matter how intense things get here on Earth, there is energy to allow for a breakthrough, there is always a way up and through. Pluto, the planet of the Soul, is in Capricorn, and forming a strong and stabilizing angle to Venus, the planet governing what and who you love and cherish, in the sign of Virgo. This can keep your values in check and remind you where to dedicate your attention and your time.
It supports a theme of being stronger than you were before because of what you have endured. Tthink of those boys and their coach who were trapped in the caves in Thailand and the miraculous rescue. Prepare to be pushed through a portal. There is light at the end of the tunnel!
