The Week Ahead: July 10-16

[pic: michal kopf]
An intense, purifying week, following the continuing themes of this Hades Full Moon, but with many slight twists and fiddlesome little details for attunement and adjustment in our quest for balance and a drama-free ride along our blessed bus ride. Whether joyous or cathartic, the week steals upon us unawares, coming together quite spontaneously by Friday, either as a blessing or a grace. Let’s use it.

Here are the main transits for the week:

The Cancer Sun opposes Pluto early this week, and for those not familiar with this phenomenon, please recap here, as i went into this extensively in last week’s write-up:

Ceres enters Cancer, where mother-henning doesn’t get cluckier or clutchier, and her little chickies don’t get any needier or more dependent on their mama. Whilst this goddess of nurturance and food/nutrition stays in Cancer for the next 10 weeks, things do go a little dark when Ceres (gr.=Demeter) opposes Pluto (gr.=Hades) in Capricorn (August 21) – a scene most reminiscent of the trials that ensue between these two classic archetypes, post Pluto’s abduction of sweet Persephone.

As much as a deal was struck to ‘timeshare’ Persephone between the two gods’ domains, things were never quite the same after that mythical bust-up in normal ‘reality’. So too then, we might expect some level of acrimony between any partners fighting over something that was once pristine and pure, then stolen away and forever ‘tarnished’.

There may be some past hurts & traumas, untimely abductions, and feelings of abandonment in our wake. This very turbulent period (which culminates in the Leo Solar Eclipse) could dredge them all up to the table for review and for counselling. This is the higher resonating way of dealing with the pain of excessive mothering, as indicated by the this Moon/Pluto full Moon. If not dealt with in a self-empowered, conscious and brave way, unresolved trauma and rage could precipitate into a massive turn of explosive events for anyone locked into current or historical dramas around control and release. This is especially so where ancestral/parental haunts and fears rise to the fore in our affairs this week, either to be confronted and be healed, or to create another layer of pain and generational wounding.

There are several quincunxes this week, an aspect which comprises of 150 degrees of a circle, whose dynamic call for the process between the two (or more) planets to be revised or modified because neither can stand alone. This pretty much says it all for the week ahead. Because of the very nature of the quincunx configuration, the energy is going to lean over to either one side or the other in our affairs. One of us is going to feel under the constant strain of the other until there is some adjustment in our views or attitudes.

Demands seem to arise simultaneously, with whomever we deal with, and as they say, “necessity is the mother of all invention”. There’s that ‘mother’ theme again. With all the heavy, dark matter rising to the surface this week, there is a constant need to pay attention to the littlest of details… don’t take them for granted or ignore them for they will will wear down and break.

One such dynamic culminates in a Yod (or ‘finger of god’), – a double-quincunx for both Mercury and Jupiter to Neptune this Friday. This only highlights (or points the finger) on where we are placing too much faith in theories and concepts that are either confusing or are so poorly explained that they are just misleading or result in erroneous thinking. Very few are able to take the constructive ideas coming through right now and apply it successfully to parapsychological or mystical areas of life.

Much will start to break apart, and the ground beneath our feet will start to loosen considerably by the end of this week. Come to work with it… accept that the old reality is gone. Go for long walks, indulge in hot baths, question your assumptions, be kind to yourself, live for this moment, loosen up, scream, curse the world, count your blessings, just let go, and just be.

And have an amazing week…
