True Alignments (Higher Octaves): perseverance, sincerity, renewal after a “long night of the soul/sol,” inner matches outer, honorable, end of inertia, the search for higher ideals

As the New Moon phase gets underway, today’s energies focus on five themes:
1 - REFRESH - Mercury has stationed retrograde, giving us the “green light” to move things forward unencumbered. The Sun is discharging “early morning dew” to refresh things and make them new again. How about a new you? We are always undergoing transformation, but today gives us a wonderful starting point.
2 - REVERSAL - Things may turn around for us today, with things that we have been waiting for coming onto the scene. The Earth is discharging “a popularity that proves to be fleeting.” This energy separates the “real” from the “superficial.” Things that favor humanity are supported, while things that detract from humanity begin to be wiped away.
3 - RELATIVE - Venus is discharging “an old-fashioned conservative woman is confronted by an up-to-date girl.” This brings choices between the established versus contemporary or new. Sometimes a compromise between the two is the best idea. What is relevant now, in the present moment?
4 - REMEMBER - The Moon will conjunct Mars at 4:49 pm EST/8:49 pm UTC at 20 Leo and the energetic of “American Indians perform a ritual to the Sun.” Moon-Mars conjunctions can bring heightened anger or depression; it is our task to balance the energy by remembering a Higher Power is involved and turning things over if they become too much.
5 - REVELATIONS - Today the Black Moon moves to 11 Pisces, “men travelling a narrow path seeking illumination.” The Black Moon will discharge this degree through August 10. The “narrow path” is the Path of Truth (and seems to be widening by the day). This energetic tells us to stay true to ourselves and stay in our own lane. In other words, we want to focus on what we are doing and not compare that to what others are doing. We are on a mini-quest with this energy. Where do you want it to take you? Where do you want to go? What do you want to find? What do you want to know?
Happy travels today, wise owls!
