Third Quarter Moon Phase: take personal responsibility

Moon in Leo

Skill: adjust and adapt

Negative Imprint: overstating one's role, denial, jealousy, fickle, two-faced, impotent, unanchored, overvaluing the material

Positive Imprint: opportunities, simplicity, rewards, inner transformation, spirit communication, exuberance, honoring the spiritual

Today is a day for adjustment.  There is a definitive shift in the energy with the conjunction of Venus, Mercury, and the Sun, which bring enlightenment and clarity.

Enlightenment and clarity have been on tap all month long, but today a triple amount of light is headed our way.  Much of the light/information centers today around relationships, with the addition of Venus to the mix.  We see things to which we need to adjust.  The good part is that Mars is in benefic aspect, disseminating the energy of "a bluebird standing at the door of happiness."

So whatever is revealed to us is happening to take us to a happier place, even if it doesn't look like it today.  Adjustments need to be made to get us in proper alignment.  News that comes to us may be quite unsettling, but the point of this is to respond to it - not stick our heads in the sand and hope for the best.  We must take personal responsibility and make necessary preparations.

Along with adjustments today, the need to make a choice may also be presented.  Look back to promises that you have made in the past.  Does one come to mind?  Is there something unresolved about that?  Is a similar thing happening now?  You can do it a different way.  You may not know with certainty how you feel about something or someone, but you need to very certain about where you stand.  It wise to look at everything, even when your feelings are changeable.  Set your bar.  What is acceptable to you and what is unacceptable to you?  Choose wisely based on the truth of people's actions - not their words.  Words don't go the distance today.  The power of action does.

The conventional ways of solving or understanding things no longer apply.  We cannot make choices today based on societal values of the past.  The world is new.  Ingenuity begins to rule, taking over from apathy and incompetence (finally).  Synchronicities guide us.  The planet speaks to us.  This is a new way of life.

Who else but wise owls would consider life, poised as it is on the brink of breakdown, to be beautiful?  Our mindset is not grounded in the matrix; it is grounded with Gaia Sophia.  We turn to her when fear (and madness) creep in to mangle and erode our love for her and for her dream for us.  Did you know how much you are loved?

The old way (or negative imprint) today is spending energy on things which do not have true, lasting value or are not even relevant any longer.  Old methods that come from the core mindset of fear and competition will feel ineffective and cold, mainly because they are self-focused.  What is operational now is what is good for everyone - the whole.

The Moon will make the conjunction (be in the same place in the sky) with Jupiter at 7:14 pm ET/11:14 pm UT today.  Jupiter expands everything it touches, and the Moon brings up the depths of emotions.  The conjunction will happen at the degree of "a houseboat party," so joining with others is a good idea if possible tonight.  Take things out of the normal routine.  Do it differently.  The negative polarity of this energy would bring overwhelming feelings of being lost, untethered, or unmoored.  There's a quick fix for that: go outside.  Your will naturally begin to feel grounded once again.

The stress of Mercury will tend to have people saying what they need to say but not always in the best way.  Wise owls know it is not what you say, but how you say it.  Don't leave important communications to the uncertainty of electronic communications.  Complex emotions about complex situations do not come across well in email or text message.  Given the extreme focus on relationships today, take heartfelt communications seriously.  Be gentle about love because good love is hard to find (quoting the great Tom Petty once again).

People joining together, people becoming attracted, and people getting interested is what happens today.  New, unconventional sides to this month's mystery are emerging.  It may seem foreign or strange now, but with a little adjustment, we may see that it is just what we needed.

I will be back tomorrow with the weekend report and an audio recording for what's ahead is in the works, too, so be sure to check back.

Stay vigilant, stay responsive, and maintain your consciousness with Gaia Sophia.  Go outdoors as often as possible.  Like the seasons, we also adjust.
