Getting the word out at the Gateway Music Festival this weekend.
Mars in Cancer moves into cardinal t-square this weekend with Uranus in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn, tying our personal actions to the broader, collective shifts we're experiencing under the Uranus-Pluto square series. Don't underestimate the power of your personal leadership and direction over the next week, as we move into a nine-month period of cardinal Grand Crosses (August 2013 to April 2014) that will require our initiative, leadership, and decisiveness amidst chaos. Personal actions produce wide-reaching ripple effects that we can't even see at the moment...
Chatty Cathy Mercury is still hanging around cardinal t-square territory, as well, just getting back up to full speed in Cancer coming out of its July 20 direct station. Our minds are on the protection of the people and things we hold dearest, but it's taking all our Uranian ingenuity to protect all that is coming under attack. The homey Cancer circle has to become wider - much wider - if we are to effectively address the real threats to our long-term security and well-being.
The Moon enters Aries at 4:29 p.m. CST tomorrow, stirring fire, excitement, action, and drive as the weekend gets underway. The Aries Moon enters the cardinal t-square fray on Saturday - a major activation of t-square themes.
Venus in Virgo is hitting all the marks - opposite Neptune and Chiron in Pisces, sextile Saturn in Scorpio and Jupiter in Cancer, and trine Pluto in Capricorn. These aspects involve practically applying our highest spiritual ideals down to the last, nitty gritty detail. Being helpful to those we love and taking care of the mundane details (dishes done, bills paid, hair washed) provide the grounding necessary for all the Grand Water Trine energy. Venus in Virgo likes to get things done, and finishing things is one way we're showing the love now until Venus enters home sweet home Libra August 16, moving into the first cardinal Grand Cross.
This is potentially a very dynamic weekend with foreshadowing of the energies and themes soon to come. We're all gunning for new and interesting territory within familiar Cancerian summer realms.
The Sun, Vesta, and Ceres are in Leo. The Moon is in Aries. So do your thing this weekend, whatever that may be. No one does "you" better than "you."
