Something greater seeks us today.
The Sun is discharging the energetic of "cherub-like, a human soul whispers, seeking to manifest." When this dynamic is in effect, life-changing things occur. Things become more "real." Deep realizations, significant developments, and new information come to us, bringing the power to entirely transform or change something.
The purpose of this is to take us to another level -- a better place, a better mindset, a better understanding.
What is your deep inner voice whispering to you today?
There is a good chance that what develops today shows us the way forward -- the way ahead. We see where we need to go or what is needed in order to proceed. Guidance, direction, and the ability to persevere comes as the Earth discharges the energetic of "a train entering a tunnel." When this is in effect, there is only one way to go: forward. Trying to "go back" does not work well. Remaining in the past or with what has been "left behind" is not an option.
Whispers can turn into sonic booms today, as Venus completes its journey through Leo, discharging 30 Leo: "an unsealed letter." The truth comes out. Leaks and disclosures occur, oftentimes impulsively. We want to think twice before speaking. Words cannot be taken back. It is best to express as gently and respectfully as possible with this energetic. Expressions of the heart ripple through time and space when we have the "unsealed letter" frequency of energy. Take care with hearts.
At 11:28 am ET/3:28 pm UT, Venus will move out of Leo and into Virgo, discharging "in a portrait, the best of a man's features and traits are idealized." This enables many things to unlock/progress/move forward. It empowers us to put our best foot forward! As the symbol implies, there can be a tendency to put people, places, and things up on a pedestal, sometimes at the cost of not seeing their reality or true nature. The question to ask oneself is: Does it work?
Mercury is discharging "an expressionist painter making a futuristic drawing." This reinforces the themes of "expressions of the heart" and "moving forward" that are already in place today. The more original, creative, and imaginative anything is, the better (the greater).
The Moon will conjunct Jupiter at 11:20 pm ET/3:20 am UT, just as Jupiter moves to 24 Virgo: "Mary and her white lamb." This is quite a shift out of the energetic of 23 Virgo: "a lion tamer rushes fearlessly into the circus arena." A softening occurs. With the Sun discharging the "cherub-like" energetic, and the Moon and Jupiter combining to discharge the innocence of "Mary and her white lamb," a return to ease can occur. When pressure is taken off or released, everything becomes easier; we can hear what our hearts are whispering to us.
As the day progresses, relationships take on greater focus. The primary dynamic in effect through the weekend is Venus making a square with Mars. Exact square occurs Saturday, August 6 at 8:00 pm ET/midnight UT. Venus at 02 Virgo shows us something important in relationships with "a large white cross - dominating the landscape - stands alone on top of a high hill." Mars at 02 Sagittarius shows us what has been hidden and brings things to the surface with "the ocean covered with whitecaps." Longtime readers may remember that "the ocean covered with whitecaps" energetic can carry a high potential to effectively deceive. It stirs things up or it keeps them hidden (to its detriment). This combination of Venus and Mars (along with the religious undertones of today's energies), could very easily incite violence against others. We will hold peace in our hearts.
Today, we know that things strive to become greater than they are. It happens when we listen to what our hearts are whispering. Happy Friday, everyone!
