A great piece on yesterday and today and for some time to come. Go to: http://www.aquariuspapers.com/astrology/2012/07/the-full-moon-of-cancer-capricorn-2012-pt-2-illuminated-will-adventure-in-consciousness.html
for the whole article.
“The Yod, or Finger of God, is made by Mercury at 8 Leo sextile Venus at 9 Gemini with both quincunx Pluto at 9 Capricorn. Though Venus is just separating by 2 minutes of motion, it’s so close that this will be a powerful focus wherever we have 9 Capricorn, with major productivity where we have those degrees in Gemini and Leo. So the next two weeks will involve expansions through sacrifices, with productivity in the Gemini and Leo sectors and adjustments in the Capricorn sectors of our charts.
Whatever is squeezed into focus over the next two weeks through sacrificing whatever is needed to achieve that focus will become the source of opportunity, imagination, and expanded life awareness and adventures when Jupiter crosses 8-9 Gemini between July 14-25. This will bring many a technique of attuning to the invisible world that will be useful when confronting events this coming October, November, and December.
The Moon biseptile Mars, with Mercury septile Mars, opens 7 zones of intense non-rational events and activity. These zones are around 7-11 Leo, 28 Virgo-2 Libra, 20-24 Scorpio, 12-16 Capricorn, 3-7 Pisces, 24-28 Aries, and 15-19 Gemini. If you have a planet or point in these zones, expect dramatic choices and changes in your life in the areas listed in the second paragraph of this article.
As with the Yod, we can expect significant developments evolving from the choices we make in the next few weeks when Jupiter is in the Gemini zone in September and October, as well as when Mars crosses the Scorpio zone the last 10 days of September. It would seem that late September is going to set some major events into motion that have their origin over the next two weeks! Pay close attention to when the Moon moves through these zones on July 6-7 (Pisces), July 11-12 (Aries), and July 15-16 (Gemini).
So Just What Was the New Moon Theme for this Period?
Remember that the qualities of the Full Moon express whatever new directions we were shown at the previous New Moon. You will recall its theme is one of getting clear about what is true and what isn’t true, and finding multiple angles of approaching perception and information.
This one requires that we externalize some element of our individuality in a way that attracts what we would like to see appear. This time is entirely about clarity in who we are and what we’re externalizing. Other themes involve the “recapitulation of past opportunities at the threshold of a new cycle of experience,” and “realization of new potentialities,” and “the creative exuberance of the human soul in response to life renewals.”
Further, it’s about weaving “collective material” and expressing it so that we demonstrate our virtuosity to our environment and our world.” Rudhyar says it’s about “Expansion,” and individual mental Exteriorization in the Act of Differentiation.
It’s also a time of learning how our “aesthetic experience” strengthens our core through our “skill in imitation.” Here our “aspiration becomes articulate far in advance of (our) self-refinement,” where the promise is made manifest in extraordinary achievements. This is an attempt at self-revelation which enhances our roles in everyday life.
We are all quickening, and are in a time of opening to new ways of externalizing our skills, knowledge, and aspiration. The recent Venus retrograde helped us all to get new insights into what we like, why we like it, and why we liked other things and people in the past. We may have gotten insights into previous difficult situations which allowed us to correct our aim, use intensity to better advantage, and repair something that went off track through vagueness or a lack of clarity in some ways.” Robert Wilkinson9 comments
