This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of July 26th 2014 for 1 - Ik "eek" or Wind in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Leo New Moon, and Mercury moving into Leo.
July 26th 2014 for 1 - Ik "eek" or Wind carries the themes of air, breath, life force, prana, chi, that which animates life, inspiration, imagination, the spark of creativity and spirit, communication, and the dissemination of seeds and ideas. The day glyph for wind is a T shaped cross that represents the Mayan god of wind but is also symbolic of trees which restore the life energy to the air. This thirteen day period would be a good time to communicate your inspiration and connect with the life force that makes you unique.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. August is the eighth month and with the digits for 2014, when added together we get 15, then we add 1 + 5 to tell us that this is a fifteen/six month in numerology. Basic numerology reduces numbers to one through nine, so when we think about that arc the six represents a time of review after gaining insights during the five month. It's about finding balance by sorting out to determine what we want to keep and what has fulfilled its purpose and can be released. These qualities are shared by the sign of Virgo, which is the placement of the sun at the end of the month. The six month wants resolutions and harmony. The fifteen/six combination is represented by the Devil and the Lovers in the Tarot cards, which is about facing our bedevilments or problems with tenacity and humor to hone ourselves in relationship to the other. This quote from Bennett W. Goodspeed represents the Devil archetype, "The difference between a comedy and a tragedy is that in a comedy the characters figure out reality in time to do something about it." This offering from Anais Nin is helpful in understanding the Lovers, "The value of the personal relationship to all things is that it creates intimacy, and intimacy creates understanding, and understanding creates love." So August represents a new series of events and a shift in a new direction on many levels including facing our inner shadow and sharing our light with others. With Mars in Scorpio, purpose and passion mirror the tarot archetypes. Saturn also in Scorpio takes that powerful drive to align action with responsibility, transparency and ethics.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 - Ik "eek" or Wind, on the 26th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth except Chiron, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Uranus in Aries is seeking to shake our very foundation through the unexpected rebellion of the individual. Obviously this is a difficult time of upheaval, destruction, death, unexpected change, natural disasters, violence and war. Retrograde Uranus in Aries will have people wanting to hurry the process of getting free. To push the river of revolution whether it be personal or governmental. I think that this is the time of detaching (Uranus) to act as an unobstructed individual (Aries). Being an outer planet, Uranus creates events that we "respond" to. The inner planets effect us personally as individuals, but the outer planets change the landscape which effects us as a collective and as individuals within humanity. Which reminds me of this Krishnamurti quote "The only hope for humankind is in the transformation of the individual." Uranus creates challenges according to the sign it's in, so we may feel like we keep getting lessons in a theme over and over again. Uranus being the modern ruling planet of Aquarius, means that fairness is one of the topics, and often these events may seem unfairly set against us. Neptune in its own sign of Pisces is seeking transcendence through spiritual experiences. This will be a time to use spiritual practices to keep us grounded as we expand our intuition and consciousness. This will be important energy to nurture as we are in the middle of four years of the challenging Uranus Pluto squares that have been affecting us as a collective and as individuals. Pluto represents death, completion, and in Capricorn, the breakdown of structures, to bring about transformation. Pluto in Capricorn is determined in exposing the darkness, destroying the old order, so that we can rise up like the Phoenix from the ashes to soar again. Capricorn is about large structures which includes banks, governments, corporations, and religions. This is a time of a cosmic course correction for the entire planet.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena. July 26th 2014 for 1 - Ik "eek" or Wind: unity experienced through communication in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while we have the Leo New Moon. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Leo is about shifting and changing of our creativity and having the urge to roar. This brings a surge of new creativity through making different choices, exploring new options, and investigating unrealized desires. This new moon is about exploring the edge, because the familiar is no longer the preferred. New moons are times of new beginnings and in Leo, it's about power, exuberance, creativity, enthusiasm, and drama, which is ruled by the Sun. New Moons bring the opportunity to set an intension for manifestation on the following full moon. Look to the house of your astrology chart that contains 3 degrees 52 minutes Leo to consider what area of your life is being activated by this new moon. For me that would be my second house of money, income, financial prospects, and possessions, so I would set an intension related to using this energy to increase abundance with Jupiter newly in Leo for the next year, these themes will get an extra boost. The moon is challenged by Mars and merges with Jupiter and the Sun. The moon square Mars could have people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes, but that is somewhat balanced by the lunation's conjunction to Jupiter which brings good feelings and generosity towards others. This New Moon following two days after the Sun Jupiter conjunction may present opportunities to move through another important shift that leads in a new direction. On the world stage, Leo which rules creativity but also children, Jupiter is expansion, and here in the United State the increase of children streaming into the country has become a hot topic. Mars in Scorpio in a harsh aspect to the lunation brings aggressive conflict to this the themes of the New Moon. The 27th is 2 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: duality experienced through contemplating the stars, while the Leo Moon finds support from Uranus and is challenged by Saturn has people having the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive, while feeling lonely or isolated. July 28th is 3 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: taking action through planting seeds and making new connections, while Venus is opposed by Pluto which will intensify relationships. When Venus dances with Pluto, it is not uncommon to hear from our past lovers or pine for someone from your past, usually it's best to leave these old partners where they are, but some will not be able to resist digging up the dead to be sure of the relationships' demise. Overall this intensifies experiences in our love lives. People will seek emotional experiences that transport them out of the ordinary, which could also lead to indiscretions that lead to problems later on. A new relationship begun under this transit may have a compulsive nature to it. Watch out for people wanting to exert power over others through manipulating jealousy, guilt or another negative emotion. Some will feel irresistibly attracted to someone who is not good for them. Relationships may struggle due to hidden resentments and tensions rising to the surface, just being conscious of that and choosing your words carefully, so they are not interpreted as destructive, can provide an opportunity for growth in partnership. Also on the 28th the Moon in Leo makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Virgo at 11:37 pm EDT, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. The 29th is 4 - Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: stability through being flexible, while the Virgo Moon is stimulated by Mars, opposed by Neptune, and finds support from Pluto. The day's emotional energy moves from having the desire to work independently from others, to later feeling sensitive emotionally but confused regarding the accuracy of what's being felt, and finally with Pluto bringing out intense emotions and stimulating sensitivity, which also favors sexual relationships. July 30th is 5 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: empowerment through releasing what no longer serves us, the Moon in Virgo harmonizes with Venus and Saturn which shifts from having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones to later wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings. The 31st is 6 - man-eek" : being in the flow through being of service to others, while Mercury enters Leo which brings two weeks of more exuberant and leadership in communication. Expect that people will express themselves with a little more drama, less sensitivity, more stubbornness, and with a flair for humor. It would be best to avoid being arrogant or boastful under the Leo Mercury influence. Also on the 31st the moon harmonizes with Mercury and Jupiter. The day moves from being very social and having lots of conversations, to later feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness. August 1st is 7 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: reflection through being grateful for abundant relationships, with Venus squaring Uranus and trine Saturn. Venus square Uranus activates the Uranus Pluto for a few days before and after the 1st, and has folks seeking excitement in their love relationships, this can include picking a fight to experience a different aspect of interacting. The beginning of August is intense as we have the planet of love, but also money in Cancer being challenged by the "Winds of Change". Because Uranus is involved this is unpredictable but also can be drastic with Pluto in concert. Themes of this energetic might be an unexpected stock market drop, a change in spending due to scarcity, or a currency change in oil markets where the dollar had been the preferred measurement of value. On a personal level folks are looking for something exciting, out of the ordinary, and so if your relationship has become dull or predictable this is the time to inject it with a new experience, rather than have it erupt into a fight about "how we never do anything interesting..." Basically the less flexibility in a relationship during this transit, the more damaging this alignment is likely to be. Venus trine Saturn brings some reliability, stability and a clearer perspective on our relationships. People will recognize their loved one as human, and as long as we live up to our obligations they will likely do the same. Venus is also about money so this may have folks being more conservative with their limited resources. Relationships begun under this transit tend to be stable and sobering, more practical than romantic. Venus trine Chiron will help heal the old wounds that we've become aware of from the interactions of the planet of love and money with Uranus and Saturn. Also on the 1st Mars squares Jupiter, which brings energy for successful activities and furthering new projects, with a caution against being reckless during this surge of unbridled desire. Folks will be tempted to shoot first and ask questions later, acting quickly without considering all the factors. Unjustified optimism that our efforts today will "turn into gold" may unbalance our judgment. Through planning and fore thought we may find success, but it will not come about based solely on luck. This transit is future oriented, and good for furthering new projects, just avoid overextending yourself or your resources. There is also a fondness for taking risks and pushing beyond normal limitations of energy, impulsivity now will be paid for in the future, which may be less than pleasant, or it may result in accidents at this time. With Mars newly in Scorpio and Jupiter newly in Leo, both at 3 degrees and change, we are likely to feel a drive to take action on new events pushing us to become involved in something we didn't plan for that brings purpose and passion. Leo's leadership influence will have some willing to confront those who wish to oppress and usurp power. Scorpio's depth will want to dig below what is being offered to find the hidden truth. Also on the 1st the Libra Moon harmonizes with the Sun, is challenged by Pluto and Venus, and opposed by Uranus. The day moves from feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds, then shifts to having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, later folks are emotionally excitable and impulsive, and finally having pleasant energy to be with friends and loved ones. The 2nd is 8 Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: balance through appreciating creation, with Mercury conjunct Jupiter and square Mars. Mercury conjunct Jupiter has us looking at the larger issues in life. It helps our comprehension by seeing the bigger perspective and incorporating new information. This also brings more tolerance of the view points of others. This is a time of evaluating our hopes and dreams along with our overall plans for the future. This can be quite optimistic and particularly good for business and commercial transactions, contract negotiations, and dealings with the law, especially if we recognize that we get what we want by helping others fulfill their needs. We are likely feel our communications are expensive not only in quantity but also in scopes of topics. Leo's influence brings courage, bravery, and perhaps throwing caution to the wind and jumping both feet forward into some new endeavor or relationship. It would be best to avoid being overconfident, as this may be a time where people over look important details under the influence of Jupiter. Mercury square Mars also on the 2nd, continues to compound the intensity with another difficult transit. This one has people feeling touchy and irritable, with almost any communication interpreted as a challenge. Hard to imagine that someone doesn't get set off by the implied attitude of this transit. People will feel the drive to defend their ideas, from a simple debate to and all out fight. This time it would be important to realize beliefs and thoughts can change and to not indentify our ego with them. This is yet another transit that indicates the potential to be involved in accidents. This particularly likely for someone who trying to suppress their anger. Also on the 2nd the Moon in Libra makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Scorpio at 10:57 pm EDT, which does not favor major decisions or purchases, but is good to use for resting to assimilate this latest round of energy and experiences. August 3rd is 9 - Oc "awk" or Dog: patience experienced through enjoying family and friends, while the First Quarter Scorpio Moon is challenged by Jupiter, Mercury and the Sun, merges with Mars, finds support from Neptune, and harmonizes with Pluto. Brings an emotional busy day that starts with benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment, then experiencing irritable moods and critical communications, to our moods influencing our ability to think rationally, later fantasies and daydreams distracting us from accomplishing routine tasks, and finally we encounter challenges to our daily routines. The 4th is 10 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: manifestation through creating something new, while the Moon in Scorpio merges with Saturn and is supported by Venus which shifts from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, to later enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions. August 5th is 11 - Eb "eb" or Road: resolution through serving your community, while the Sagittarius Moon is supported by Jupiter and challenged by Neptune which moves from people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing, to later daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality. The 6th is 12 - Ben "ben" or Reed or Corn: understanding through maintaining the home, with Saturn trine Chiron favoring healing any limitations in our lives through acceptance. Saturn supporting Chiron means the healing occurs through work and discipline with a solid foundation for releasing old wounds. Also on the 6th the Moon in Sagittarius finds support from Mercury, the Sun and Uranus which shifts from feeling in touch with our emotions and expressing them to others, to later feeling a sense of inner harmony which is mirrored in the outside world, then finally brings a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine. August 7th is 13 - Ix "eesh" or Jaguar: movement to the next stage through enjoying nature, while Mars trines Neptune which is good for using our energy in activities that benefit others rather than helping ourselves. This can also inspire us to seek spiritual knowledge about how we relate to others and the universe. Neptune balances the usual high physical energy that we normally have with a Mars transit, and actually may leave us feeling like doing very little. This makes us more conscious of the needs and wants of others. This is a good time to look at our lives and the world more objectively, without judgment, due to Neptune softening Mars' desires with detachment. Folks are more likely to do charitable work with poor or disadvantaged people, with a caution against seeing yourself as a savior to those who are worse off. Also on the 7th the Capricorn Moon harmonizes with Neptune and Mars which shifts from greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to later brings the desire to work independently from others.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Wind trecena, take some time to be in the flow of the planet by being in nature, watching a sunrise or sunset, communing with the stars, being conscious of the moment through introspection, meditation or being with someone you love. Every day is a blessing no matter what dramas beckon to distract us. We are all giving the performance of a life time on this world stage, just take some time to observe the play as well as act your part. Remember you are a spiritual being having a human experience.
