The energy of the coming month is hard to pin down. Just when we feel we’ve ‘got’ what’s needed and know how to proceed it will slip through our fingers and we’ll be left wondering what just happened. Certainty is in short supply. If we want a clear cut, straightforward path ahead with big shiny signposts pointing ‘THIS WAY’ we’ll most likely be disappointed. If, however, we are content to ride the ups and downs of emotion and enthusiasm, not seeking to plan ahead but instead trusting the ever changing flow to take us where necessary, July could deliver some interesting surprises. By its end we may well have come by the desired clarity, just not via the anticipated route!
Since the Sun left Taurus on 21st May there’s been a dearth of available earth energy, leaving many people ungrounded. Emotions have been high and, despite moments of inspiration and excitement about present possibilities and future potential, getting plans into gear and taking action has been tough going for many. As a result we could begin July with a sense of dissatisfaction. Somehow we’re just not as effective as we feel we should be. Focusing is tough and our minds and hearts too changeable to pin down. If that’s you, don’t worry! Whilst the coming month brings some more of the same, we are now approaching the end of this somewhat nebulous phase in favour of a shift into action and manifestation beginning in August.
Until then, however, the best advice is to expect nothing, embrace everything and never forget that all things change including change itself. When it’s tough to pin things down and identify the next step we may feel we’ve missed something along the way, gone down the wrong path or are seeking in the wrong place. In fact none of this is currently true. We are simply in the middle of a shift that’s taking a while to complete because our minds and hearts need to be more malleable to get us where we need to be. We couldn’t just step from one phase into another without this interim time of dissolution, confusion, emotion and indecision, for it is in just such a space that aspects of our being not previously revealed can make themselves known. We may discover we’re a lot more comfortable with the unknown than we ever used to be; or we suddenly come up with a whole new plan that would never have crossed our minds had we implemented the one we had a few weeks back without further ado. Like June, July is also a creative time in which we are the works of art as well as the artists. Just as Michelangelo saw the angel in the marble and simply carved away the non-angel bits to free it, life is currently chipping away a bit here, a bit there, to reveal something more authentically you and me, ready to implement new plans and manifest cherished outcomes in the months to come.
2nd July sees a Full Moon in Capricorn at 2:21 am GMT. Together with Venus’s brief two weeks in the first degree of Virgo later this month, this is a dose of earthiness we can all use, so be sure to soak it up! That said, there exists an air of ambivalence about this Moon. We want to get on with things and make our mark but are acutely aware it’s still not quite time to do so. In which case the energy of this Moon is best put to use grounding our hopes and aspirations, stating them clearly to ourselves and tentatively testing them against what is still a very changeable reality. It comes to something when even a Capricorn Moon isn’t committed to action, but there you have it! Such is the nature of the current energy. We are still being shaped and moulded, like it or not, and we’re not yet who we need to be to embark on the next phase. It’s important to remember at this point that however we feel right now, we won’t be feeling the same way in a couple of days, let alone a couple of weeks! So waste no time or energy identifying with the emotion of the moment. Simply allow life to do what it must, ourselves to feel as we do and take one minute at a time. …..READ MORE AT:
