Varying degrees of tumultuousness dominate the energetics until 3:31 pm ET/7:31 pm UT. The primary motivator of this is the primary motivator itself - Mars.
Mars is the added element to an intensive day when the Moon is making dramatic astrological aspects with Chiron and then the Black Moon. Mars is located at the degree of "a violent storm in a canyon with expensive homes." Dramatic events and feelings occur when Mars is at this degree. It's happening at the end of a Full Moon phase; Full Moon phases heighten everything.
Mars is "activating" or "violently storming through," sweeping things clear. This happens to be the special skill of the Mahavidya (Wisdom Goddess) Dhumavati. She winnows things, sorts them. She separates and closes out. She releases what has served its purpose. She shines what remains.
Mars' activation of the Moon, Chiron, and the Black Moon means that the "darker" issues related to self-sabotage, pain, wounding, and shadow sides (fears) are being mentally, emotionally, and physically swept clean.
Mars' activation of the Moon, Chiron, and the Black Mon also means that the "lighter" issues related to healing, wisdom, truth, and rebirth are being mentally, emotionally, and physically polished to brightness.
Before the Moon leaves Pisces, the sign of water, today, Venus will retrograde back to the 29th degree of Leo, joining Jupiter at the Sabian symbol of "a mermaid emerges from the ocean ready for rebirth in human form." Rebirth begins at 4:50 pm ET/7:50 pm UT and will crest (crown) tomorrow, Tuesday, August 4 at 5:30 pm ET/10:30 pm when Venus conjuncts Jupiter once again.
All of this energy is bringing forward the things that shine in the light. With it, darkness seeks refuge behind cobwebs of the past, which provide little cover. The truth of people, places, and things is revealed under these stellar dynamics.
What is seeking emergence from the oceans of our minds? What wants to come into form? What defies weathering? What makes good sense?
To discover the answers, we don't fight the tide. Today it is a good idea to let go of the need to control and let things go their course as much as possible because, like the mermaid, new forms are beginning to emerge. We witness the beauty.
