Skill: How can you unify something?
True Alignments (Higher Octaves): festive, no pretenses, peaceful coexistence, friendship, reflection, trauma release, gaining wisdom, time for contemplation, you can do it
Catalysts for Change (Lower Octaves): over-compartmentalization of feelings in order to cope (overdoing some areas of life and underdoing other areas), non-committal, over the top drama or dramatizations, tooting one’s horn too loudly, too much importance on one thing, ignoring truth, denial of real issues, showing off, fear of rejection
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month: “glassblowers shape beautiful vases with their controlled breathing” (inspiration; co-creating with Spirit)
Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Year: “fairies dancing in the setting Sun” (transition to better)
Today is a day that is all about the fellowship of humanity. Everything group or peer-related is favored. So this makes for a fabulous day to brainstorm with others, bounce ideas off of others for their thoughts, share stories, celebrate of friendship, and UNITY.
This is happening as Venus is beginning to chase the Sun to meet up with it. When Venus makes an approach to the Sun, good things start to happen. Blessings are delivered. Prayers are answered. General loveliness occurs. It will take Venus until the eve of the Full Moon, August 14, to make exact conjunction with the Sun. Until then, higher octaves are easier to reach. Warning: Beauty Ahead
However, Venus rules money, and the changes we are seeing in currencies and markets will be eventful during this time. These systems need reform and this is the year for that, so no surprise.
Within this, today specifically brings situations and circumstances related to risks. This can be romantic risks, financial risks, professional risks, or interpersonal risks. Risk is favored for anything that is congruent with truth and love and in line with the best for the fellowship of humanity. Intentions are key.
“Recollection” is the word today. Too much recollection or wispy longings for days passed and not enough focus on the present moment is unadvised. It will lead to malaise. Issues about what people recollect, how they recollect it, if they recollect, or if they are just saying they don’t recollect also come with today’s energies.
Lastly - little luxuries. Today is the day to indulge in one, no matter how small. Immerse yourself in the experience. We are here, after all, to experience, and that doesn’t mean just the hard stuff. And if you can share a little luxury, well that would just be Divine. :)
