Third Quarter Moon Phase: revise, realign

Moon in Gemini/Cancer 11:07 pm ET/3:07 am UT

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Bhairavi, Goddess Who Fortifies the Heart

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will): Kathe, God of the South

Skill:  follow your heart

True Alignments: getting to the essence or bare truth, information gained, heightened intuition, synchronicities, penetrating insight, honor, loyalty, chivalry, inner strength, giving, expression (especially creative expression), declarations

Catalysts for Change:  excluding others, too much importance placed on appearances, confusion, harshly judgmental of self, out of tune, dishonor (particularly of a family), alienated, irrational, bullying, working against others or a team, intangible, overindulgence (especially of anything that alters the mind)

Neptune's dreaminess overtakes Mars' action today, sending us into a naturally mystical state of consciousness.

Feeling a little dissociated or in a slight daze is common with this configuration.  The energies induce "zoning out." 

Adding to the etheric quality, the Sun is discharging "a man becoming aware of nature spirits and normally unseen spiritual energies."  What was previously unseen is seen.  We have revelations about things.  We come to another understanding about them.  Trends and patterns become visible.  We attune to a different way.

Adding to the revelatory quality, Mercury is discharging "a man gaining secret knowledge from an ancient scroll he is reading."  We gain insight into our own past, which may seem ancient to us in some way.  The wisdom of our souls is cached and available.  This energetic is kind of like the door to the private section of our psyche's library being opened.  Great insight is available and can be put into immediate, practical use.  The catalyst for the insight may likely be something we read (and not necessarily something esoteric that we read).

Ideals, mind and belief sets, notions, concepts, wishes, dreams, and projects that we have held or have been working on for a long time are taken to a higher level today.  Mars is discharging "a flag that turns into an eagle that crows."  This means that representations or ideas come to fruition.  Ideas come to life, so to speak. 

With this energetic, we also tend to speak up and speak out.  We stand up and stand out.  We align with what we believe.

Also today, Venus and Jupiter are building toward exact conjunction tomorrow, Saturday. August 27, 2016 at 6:15 pm ET.  The conjunction occurs at 28 Virgo and the Sabian symbol of "a bald-headed man who has seized power."  More on this tomorrow, but keep in mind that Jupiter expands whatever it touches, and it is touching Venus right now.  This can make us "touchy" about appearance, love, relationships, security, and money.  On the note of Venus and appearance, at 28 Virgo, the "bald-headed man" has freed himself from encumbrances and ideas related to appearance.  He may have shaved his head himself.  He has transcended the paradigm, and in the process tapped his own inner power.  More on the Venus-Jupiter conjunction tomorrow, but this Sabian symbol is worthy of consideration about how it personally applies, as the dynamic will be in effect until November 13, 2017.

See you tomorrow!

Mercury will station retrograde on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.  It is a good idea to back up data or copy important files before then.

Today, let's turn into wise owls that turn into eagles that crow.  Let your heart speak to and guide you to the inner place of power.
