NEW MOON “Energy Soup” – AUGUST 2016
The “Energy Soup” Report Follows:
At this New Moon, plant a seed for the Universe to tend. Set your vision upon the stars. The darkest, starriest nights occur as the Moon rises and sets with the Sun, inviting us to pause and reflect on where we have been, and envision anew where we are going.
New Moon: August 2, 2016 at 1:44 PM Pacific Time Zone
Since we’re all inextricably interconnected to each other, our planet, and our universe, below are some the energies we’re all swimming in together.
The Power Path ~ Use this moon as a restart. Let go of how you are holding or still processing all the ups and downs of transformative July. Forgive what has not gone so well, acknowledge what has, take a deep breath and regroup so you can step out more fully into your life with courage and a new resolve. This is a time to make some inner commitments to yourself about what you will do from now on and what you will not do anymore from now on. This new moon brings us all an opportunity for some inner truth telling and gives us the energy and clarity for new resolutions and determination. The energy of the sun empowers the masculine qualities of “will” and “action”. That which has been set in motion during transformative and squirrelly July, can now find a new alignment for moving forward. You cannot do it alone. So start the cycle of this new moon by gathering your support and asking for help when you need it. Don’t let this new moon go by without honoring it and yourself in some way.
Madeline Gerwick, Business Astrologer, Polaris Business Guides ~ The New Moon at 10 degrees Leo occurs on Tuesday, August 2nd. It’s best to wait until a few days after the New Moon to start new projects, when you can see the Moon growing in light. This New Moon shows leaders and the public being responsible (Sun and Moon trine Saturn) and taking care of obligations. Watch communications though! There can be both confusion or deception, and critical or judgmental thinking.
Cosmic*Intelligence*Agency ~ With the trine from Saturn to the New Moon it’s a great time to nurture the prime resource of our inner fire and work with the virtues of Leo to center ourselves in heart consciousness, strength, courage, love, confidence, creativity and (com)passion and to confidently walk the path as an autonomous and independent leader; in that we know our truth, we know the source of it, we know the path of our heart and we take full responsibility for ourselves, in this way, we are the leaders of ourselves and nobody else can claim that. And as we hold this spiritual power steady over time by ‘being’ in our authenticity and integrity we too, shall be masters of ourselves and with it have an incredibly positive influence on that grand sum of consciousness going on out there because at the end of the day we are all one and we can change the world by changing our selves first.
JUL 26-AUG 22 is the “Magnetic Moon [Month] of Purpose” according to the Galactic Calendar – its energies are UNIFY-ATTRACT-PURPOSE; its Totem Animal is BAT. “You are internally programmed to rise to your highest creative possibility.” ~ Marianne Williamson
August Theme - “Collaboration”
The Power Path - Lena & Jose Stevens: Although the experiences you may have during the month could be as diverse as the population of the planet, the theme of COLLABORATION gets to the foundation of what is needed right now in everyone’s life if we are to set things up in the best way possible for a positive future. What is COLLABORATION? Collaboration is working in cooperation with others to achieve a common goal. [Read more…]
Ongoing “ENERGY SOUP”
Mars Retrograde - Jun 26-Aug 27 2016 - Stephanie Austin, EcoAstrology - While retrograde in Sagittarius, Mars summons us to re-examine our most fundamental assumptions, question our strategies, and realign with our higher Self. Are we living our life purpose? Are we walking our talk? Where do we need to take a leap of faith?
Saturn-Neptune Squares – Sep 10 2016 - Stephanie Austin, EcoAstrology - This Saturn–Neptune square is part of a larger synodic cycle of 36 years. Squares mark important turning points; these are waning squares, considered by Dane Rudhyar ‘a crisis in consciousness,’ where we must re-orient ourselves and release forms which no longer support our growth…Saturn–Neptune squares challenge us to manifest from our essence rather than our ego, and to follow our intuition and inner guidance rather than external authority and convention. We are summoned to spiritual maturity, which entails letting go of martyrdom and victim mentality, blame and guilt, addictions and illusions. By making more time and space in our lives to connect with our higher self, we are able to see where we have been in denial, where we have abdicated our power, and how we can instead live with both integrity and vision, pragmatism and faith. As we engage more with nature, meditation, and the wisdom of our heart, we see through the fears and beliefs that block us from embodying our truth…
Some ways to work with this ongoing Saturn-Neptune square:
- Simplify. Less can be more—more time, less hassle.
- Prioritize. A powerful mantra: What is most important in this moment?
- Set realistic goals. Make reminders of what is most important to you.
- Listen to your body. Aches, pains, illness are are messages that we need to make a change.
- Pay attention to your dreams. Both day and night dreams provide valuable pointers.
- Give yourself daily soul time. Meditate, do art, play music, dance, journal, walk, etc.
- Be completely honest. Tell the truth always, with compassion for all concerned.
- “Practice random kindness and senseless acts of beauty” (Anne Herbert)
- Be in gratitude. Thankfulness opens the heart and the way for more blessings to come.
- And most importantly: “Practice responding to every emotion or thought of fear, anger, resistance, shame, judgement, excitement, or whatever with one word–“interesting”, asking yourselves; “What am I believing that is making me feel this way, is it true?
