Today's energetics may become progressively confusing and frustrating as the day expands, so let's focus on what's happening beyond this. When we can see ahead, it makes us feel like we are prepared or more at peace. It's not necessary to look ahead to feel this way, because we are always held in divine support.
Nonetheless, let's break it down now in a short summary that I will expand on when the New Moon is Leo overview is recorded tomorrow:
1- THE NEW MOON APPROACHES and with it a new lunar month's type of energy. The New Moon is in Leo on Friday, August 14 at 10:52 am ET/2:52 pm UT at 22 Leo. The Sabian symbol for the new lunar month is "a carrier pigeon fulfilling its mission." I will talk much more about this symbol in the recording, but this is about communication, messages, waves, and goals. The point to catch today is that we move out of the watery, emotional realms of Cancer and into the fiery action of Leo. That's a big elemental change. So the feelings that come from this sort of switch can be confusing and testing, but ultimately TRANSFORMATIONAL. This past month has been a shift point - a turning point - when we transition from things being one way to another. As this lunar month completes over today and tomorrow, shift will happen.
2- VENUS CONJUNCTS THE SUN just a day later on Saturday, August 15 -- a much-discussed day. Venus is retrograde so it is COMING BACK to the Sun and meeting up at 23 Leo. 23 Leo is the energy of "a bareback rider in a circus displays her dangerous skill." This is the heart of it. Shift will be acrobatic. The conjunction of Venus and the Sun happens in tight trine (120 degrees; facilitative) to Uranus, and thus the Eris Point since this is where Uranus is located. A great deal of anxiety is also built in because, when Uranus is activated, it perturbs or shakes-up people, places, and things. It can drive people, places, and things crazy if it happens too quickly. But it is all about putting things in proper alignment with what is highest and best and what is in our destiny. However, and most importantly, all of this energy provides a great deal of LOVE, which is spreading in waves all over the planet bringing greater truth, freedom, and unity.
3- JUPITER AND THE BLACK MOON WILL MOVE TO NEW DEGREES IN VIRGO on Saturday also. Jupiter will move to the second degree and the Black Moon will move to the last. Jupiter goes outward and the Black Moon goes inward as they take the opportunity to make us more luminous - more of the "luminous child" notion, as discussed in the latest "Parliament of Wise Owls" (POWO) posted and linked on oraclereport.com. This dynamic is intense and can feel like being pulled apart. This is especially true right now for those with the Sun or Black Moon in Virgo or Pisces, and I will post a special audio message to these wise owls later today about what may help the process.
We watch all of the events, circumstances, conditions, and situations today from the perspective of observing shift. The old is being released so that the new can enter. We continue to hold the line and hold the space as shift occurs.
A couple of notes: After listening to the latest POWO where I talked about the hamsters in Andrews computer being way beyond retirement and his need for a new one,, wise owl Leela was prompted to initiate a Go Fund Me. One dollar combined with many others will make it manifest, so if you are able to donate one, you can do so at
It started 16 hours ago and it is about 25% there.
Also, I will be covering the next TWO lunar months in the audio recording with Andrew tomorrow, so we will have a broad perspective of the horizon.
