July 27 Eclipse Energy

Minitokyo

Welcome to the July 27 Eclipse - the second on of the season

The July 27 Eclipse energy is raw, potent and potentially life changing. You're going to want to get into alignment with the flow, release resistance and sort out any stagnant behaviors. This is a total lunar eclipse, the full moon @4 Aquarius on the South Lunar Node, and conjunct Mars Rx – the perfect time to let go of ‘tolerations’ and ease up on the gas.

Here's the 6 minute Vlog to get you up to speed, and feeling confident:

Date and Times on the July 27 Eclipse

NY - July 27 - 4:21 pm

Lon - July 27 - 9:21 pm

Syd - July 28 - 6:21 am

Quick Eclipse Tips

The eclipse means the moon is conjunct the North Lunar Node and opposite the sun/South Node. Symbolically, it’s a time of culmination and release.

Expect some emotional cleansing, the ‘good for the soul’ kind. You might also find something you’ve been waiting for arrives – the news, the green light, the big opportunity, and if not, you understand where, how, when and why it’s time to regroup. Either way, see it as a msg that progress is possible, and it is! The focus might well be on relationship and there could be a big CHARGE that needs releasing. You could see the light in terms of how to live your connections in a more fulfilling-to-you way.

Remember, if you want to improve your relationships ‘out there’ in the world, improve your relationship to yourself. It all begins with you.

How to go with the wild flow of this eclipse?

First, release those ‘tolerations’. Here’s how Jeannette Maw describes them:

To tolerate something means to “allow the existence of, to permit or endure or put up with something.” This implies that the something (or someone) is less than ideal and tends to drain a person’s energy. Thus, a toleration is often a hindering influence to the vibration. More . . .

Rainer Maria Rilke puts it like this:

It is not inertia alone that is responsible for human relationships repeating themselves from case to case, indescribably monotonous and unrenewed: it is shyness before any sort of new, unforeseeable experience with which one does not think oneself able to cope. But only someone who is ready for everything, who excludes nothing, not even the most enigmatic, will live the relation to another as something alive.

Go to your chart now and identify which houses are activated by this eclipse, especially the T-Square from Uranus (as discussed on the vid). Those are the areas of like where you can decluter, release, let go and move on, and have eyes for the gifts. Things get exciting, edge even, and take you on your way! Go with it, and evolve.

Solstice Dance 2018

Solstice Dance - Danza de Luna by Beverly Ash Gilbert

The Solstice Dance

Hi Everyone, I'm updating the Solstice post, making it relevant for June 21, 2018. It's happening now!

Happy mid-winter solstice in the southern hemisphere; mid-summer in the north. This is a time to celebrate, appreciate and feel gratitude for the blessings in life. Let's count them! Fuel our goals, aspirations and desires by honoring the connection to life, love, nurturing and joy. Make this whole week a an inner, and outer celebration.

Think of the Solstice Dance as a turning point, symbolic of endings and new beginnings. With Uranus and Chiron closely connected to the o degree Cancer sun (the solstice point), something in your life is on the brink of change.

Technical Notes

In Astrology, two major things happen at the solstice.

1) Sun crosses the AP – the zero degree “Aries” point. Pardon, you might say. The sun is nowhere near Aries. It’s 0 degrees of Cancer.

True, but all the Cardinal points of the zodiac, 0 Aries, 0 Cancer, 0 Libra and 0 Capricorn are collectively called the “Aries Point”. If you take a square piece of paper and fold it so each corner is in the same place, you’ll see why.

2) the sun crosses the Draconic Nodes, releasing energy to move you along your path.

If you want to fast track your abundance, creativity, well-being, love and enlightenment, then focus your thoughts on what you want to experience on or in the days after the Solstice.

Solstice 2018 @ 0 degrees Cancer

LA – June 21 – 3:07 am
NY – June 21 – 6:07 am
LON – June 21 – 11:07 am
SYD – June 21 – 8:07 pm

Deliberate Creations tips for the Solstice Dance, from the JeanetteBecome a Skilled Receiver, I Am Statements 101You're Always Doing it!

Using your Chart to Amp up Solstice Intentions

It's easy to use your chart to amp up your intentions. Follow these simple steps:

  1. Spot where the four 0 degree Cardinal signs are in your chart. Think of greeting this energy with reverence and respect, ready to engage, give and receive. This is where you do your Solstice Dance of enthusiasm and joy.
  2. Hone in on 0 degrees of Cancer in your chart. Give it an 8 - 10 degree orb either way. (20 Gemini to 10 Cancer). Any planets there? What house is the focus on? Transits to that house?
  3. Notice how you feel in this area of life, what you want and then relax about it. Let the universe do her thing!

Not sure how to find these positions in your natal chart? Pop over to the GVA Forum and we’ll give you a hand.

Happy Solstice everyone!

Uranus Breakthroughs in the 'Fall'

Uranus is in its FALL in Taurus. This has nothing to do with the seasons of the year, and everything to do with the way Uranus will express in your chart, and in the charts of nations.

Cripsen Korschen Uranus Breakthroughs Balance
Lovely Balance by Crispin Korschen

To understand why Taurus is the sign of Uranus' Fall, consider the desires of Uranus working out through Venus-ruled Taurus. What does he want, need and have to offer? The core values of Uranus include: to awaken, to shock, to be original, to be free, to revolt, rebel, reinvent. It's probably the most impersonal planet in the solar system.

Remember, the planets are the actors, the signs, the costumes they wear, the houses the stage or area of life and the aspects the scrips they read.

Now, think of what kind of costume Taurus give Uranus to wear. Words like sensual, seductive, expensive, alluring, practical, earthy, grounded, artistic, feminine, gentle, ostentatious, comfortable. Taurus is Venus ruled and of the body. Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury and of the mind, intuition and higher realms of thought. In ancient mythologies, Uranus or Ouranos, is Father Sky, a creation god of perfection, and as such, he finds his earthly prodigy, the Titans, repulsive. Probably this theme represents the detachment of Uranus to the every day, and to the 'flawed'. The key to leveraging Uranus in Taurus include finding new ways to 'get real' and express 'practical genius', earthy innovation and abundances for everyone.

Uranus Breakthroughs When Last in Taurus - 1934 - 1943

In Taurus, Uranus operates through the world of matter, not his comfort zone.  Last time, a few things went askew, like the gold standard, the world economy and democracy abroad. Our relationship to prosperity changed as a result. Perhaps this is why some eccentric (Uranus) bank robbers (Taurus) like John Dillinger and Bonnie and Clyde hit the front page of newspapers at this time.

But in addition to the challenges, innovative changes appeared. Schrödinger's cat was first imagined as a way to explain the mind-bending contradictions of quantum mechanics. J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, or There and Back Again came out, shaping the Fantasy genre for the next eighty years, and beyond. President Roosevelt signed US Social Security and the Neutrality Act. Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Pacific, a rousing combination of technology (Uranus) and feminism (Taurus).

And, a personal favorite, the board game Monopoly was created. Leave it to Uranus (imaginary) in Taurus (money) to make a game of financial success and failure. Prohibition was overturned (freedom to be licentious?) with the 21st Amendment and the first proto-computer came online, the Z1, a room-sized machine able to store 1,400 bits of information. (The machine you’re using now sits in your lap and can hold 8.5 billion bits, by contrast.)

Other inventions of the last Uranus in Taurus transit include nylon, a synthetic (Uranus) garment (Taurus). Commonplace now, it was seen as something straight out of a SF future at the time, along with pinball machines, Kodachrome photography, color films and the Volkswagen Beetle. Not all doom and gloom!

Quotes for Uranus Breakthroughs in Taurus

As feminism rallied after the success with suffrage, powerful, creative and revolutionary women spoke out.

1. "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." - Eleanor Roosevelt

2. "Sometimes, I feel discriminated against, but it does not make me angry. It merely astonishes me. How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me." -  Zora Neale Hurston

3. "I don't breed in captivity." - Gloria Steinem, when asked about her personal views on marriage. She was born in 1934 with Uranus on the cusp of Aries/Taurus.

4. "Men and women, here and now, are able to exert their wills; they are not pawns and puppets dancing on a string held by invisible hands. They can act, and think for themselves. Perhaps even they can influence other people's thoughts and actions." - -Virginia Woolfe

5. "Too often little attention is paid to individual talent. Instead, education goes on dividing people according to their sex..." - Amelia Earhart

Where will you experience your Uranus Breakthroughs?

Think of Uranus as one of the most exciting planets to work with in deliberate creation where we blast through glass ceilings and break out of limiting beliefs. It’s insanely powerful energy and we'll be talking about this more on May 15th, TIME - 6 pm EDT. For now, here are some ideas to explore.

Some have thousands of reasons why they cannot do what they want to,
when all they need is one reason why they can. -Martha Graham, dancer.

AriesARIES: Uranus breakthroughs operate in your second house of core values and sense of ‘wealth’ $$ and abundance. What is it, inner and outer, that makes you feel secure? When things go topsy-turvy, you know you're on the right track.

TaurusTAURUS: This is your sun sign, the most potent Uranian transit of your life. It lights up all four corners of your world, self-expression, home, career and partnership. It’s the perfect time to set new intentions, putting energy into YOU and what you want to create.

GeminiGEMINI: Taurus is your natural house of dreams and immersion in the collective. It’s a time of synchronicity, meaning and serendipitous connections. You will be generating new enthusiasm for a Uranus Breakthrough years ahead. Muse, create, allow.

CancerCANCER: Time to explore new connections, friendships and links with like-minded others. This energy wants tangible results so remember the ancient motto – to have a friend, be a friend. Let go of what is no longer true to you and explore new horizons.

LeoLEO: If you're not in the career or spotlight of your dreams, kiss the status quo goodbye. Disruptive at first, this transit is all about realigning with authenticity.  So, ask: are you doing what you love? The answer will define the next seven years! Be honest.

VirgoVIRGO: Time to get out of the house, away from the grind and out into the world. You are primed to taste, touch and smell the sunrise, view the sights and hear every new sound, idea and concept. Travel, explore, expand. Point your feet in a revolutionary direction.

LibraLIBRA: Joint partnerships, especially where finances are concerned, go through major transformations. You decide how you want things to be. It’s time to stop relying on outmoded business models for your shared resources. Intend for them to accelerate out of this world.

ScorpioSCORPIO: Emotional freedom to be yourself in all your relationships is the breakthrough you're after. Taurus puts the spotlight on intimacy, Uranus on liberty, meaning you will want to find new balance. Take a moment to imagine things the way you want. And so it begins . . .

SagittariusSAGITTARIUS: All the taken for granted things of the household, studio, office, your pets, plants and plans, include gym, nutrition and well-being, require new energy, attention, revolution even. Over the next seven years, put your mind on the ways and means you accomplish your will.

CapricornCAPRICORN: A childlike creative impulse infuses you, giving you the Midas Touch when it comes to creative self-expression. Don’t be embarrassed! It’s natural for you to be more playful now. Set aside some time for fun and carefree expenditure of energy for best results.

AquariusAQUARIUS: Uranus in Taurus is your cue to put attention inward, into your emotional core, the home, family and sense of 'ground' and stability. Evaluate, appreciate and make repairs, or plan rebellions, where necessary. This sets the stage for fabulous results over the next seven years

piscesPISCES: Uranus in Taurus through your communications sector has you spouting genius innovations and honing them down to practical use. i.e., cut to the chase. Your words are even MORE powerful creators of your future. Say what you mean; mean what you say.
