This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of June 29th 2015 and 1 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with the Capricorn Full Moon, and Mercury entering Cancer.
June 29th is 1 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun carries the themes of honoring ancestors, flowers, light, ascension, co-creation, unconditional love, enlightenment, opening up to new possibilities and beginnings, wholeness, and the awakening to miracles. I love that flowers is one of the symbols of Ahau, because the name Patanjali, the author of the Yoga Sutras, means one who casts flowers through time, which a quality of Ahau is the ancestors casting their wisdom through time. Ahau is considered to be one of the most sacred of days, because life would not exist on the Earth without the warmth and light of the Sun. Being both a wave and a particle, light transcends form. This 13 day period is about shining light on any uncertainty, honoring our ancestors, and taking time to purify our light to heal our spirits and Mother Earth.
Since we begin a new Gregorian month during this trecena, I thought I'd discuss the metaphysics of the upcoming month. July is the seventh month and with the digits for 2015, 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 Venus from the 18th to the 31st. 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 July 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 Saturn in Scorpio, also mirrors the tarot, to align action with responsibility, transparency and ethics.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 – Ahau "ah-how" or Sun, on the 29th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth, except Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Pluto which appear to move retrograde or in reverse motion. Remember the themes of retrograde planets are the review the past, re-evaluate, reminisce and we can see these themes being played out. Saturn retrograde reviews our commitments, plans, what we do for work, and structures of our lives. This one is a little more complicated than most because Saturn begins its apparent reverse movement in Sagittarius, but eventually backs into the final degrees of Scorpio. Saturn retrograde is a task master that demands we take responsibility to review, our beliefs while in Sagittarius and our ethics while in Scorpio. Chiron retrograde in Pisces is about releasing stuck emotional energy, so that we can return to the natural flow of life. Retrograde Chiron has us reviewing our wounds so that they can be released, by having the courage to open our hearts to any fear or pain associated with our past. When Chiron is in Pisces people are willing to sacrifice their individual pain in hopes of finding bliss in Universal consciousness. At its worst this can manifest as folks justifying their victimhood as some form of martyrdom. This should be transcendence and surrender without losing ourselves in the experience. Neptune retrograde 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. Both Neptune and Pisces, the sign it rules, tend to be dreamy, imaginative, difficult to nail down due to their qualities of illusion and illumination often without any way to know which is which. They represent compassion and co-dependence, selflessness and loss of self, higher purpose and substance abuse, in their inspiration to transcend the material plane and experience something beyond words and thoughts. When Pluto, the planet of transformation through a death and rebirth cycle, is retrograde, which is about reviewing the past, and releasing anything from the past that is a burden to our new path. 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. Pluto is in Capricorn until 2023 where it is destroying and regenerating the structures that are the foundation of our societies represented by Capricorn. This is a time of a cosmic course correction for the entire planet. We cannot continue to harm Mother Earth for the economic gain of a few. It is the resistance to Pluto's lesson of letting go of the past, that brings tragedy and pain.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
June 29th is 1 - Ahau "ah-how" or Sun: unity experienced through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while Venus trines Uranus which wants social experiences and romantic encounters to be outside the norm, unusual, and surprising. This is a great day to try something out of the ordinary. The daily routine will just not cut it under this influence. Folks are looking to do something stimulating in their social lives and relationships. A day when there may be unique encounters and love relationships that begin under this influence are exciting, electric, unstable and short, but have a strong potential to change our lives. This could also bring unconventional agreements in our relationship such as agreeing to change from an exclusive coupling to experimenting with having other lovers. Experiencing different types of entertainment is also favored by this transit, by enjoying music, art, or theater that is outside your normal choices. Also on the 29th the Sagittarius Moon is challenged by Neptune which makes daydreams and fantasies feel more important than reality.
The 30th is 2 – Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: duality experienced through nurturing new beginnings, while the Moon in Sagittarius Moon is opposed by Mercury, and supported by Uranus, Venus and Jupiter, which shifts from some feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another, then later brings a desire for emotional excitement to engage in activities outside our daily routine, followed by enjoying social interactions with others, and finally having feelings of inner and outer equanimity.
July 1st is 3 – Ik "eek" or Wind: taking action through communication, while we have the Capricorn Full Moon at 9 degrees 55 minutes, almost 10 degrees Capricorn, opposing Mars and the Sun in Cancer, in harmony with Neptune and merging with Pluto. Full moons are a time of tension as the Sun in Cancer is about balancing security, home and family, with the Moon in Capricorn, representing work and productivity. The day is a mix of the high level of energy that we have in a full moon, with the themes of, opposed by Mars; influencing people to be more excitable and irritable, which can cause problems in our personal lives. Sextile Neptune; brings greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open. Conjunct Pluto; we have more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches. Many people go out and howl on the Full Moon, but this one has so much sensitivity to others and unconscious deep feelings coming to the surface, that this might be a good lunation to spend alone or with someone you know very well, as the opposition to Mars brings unsettled emotions with a strong likelihood of miscommunications that could lead to conflict. The Moon in Capricorn can be depressing, with Mars, it could include anger. The saving grace of this Full Moon could be Venus conjunct Jupiter, which brings expansion to the themes of love and money. Folks with planets near 10 degrees of Aries, Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn may want to approach this lunation with caution. For those who have planets well aspected by the Venus Jupiter conjunction, at 21 degrees Leo, may experience some protection during this Full Moon. Also on the 1st Venus conjunct Jupiter which is one of the most agreeable transits, unfortunately it only lasts a day. It has a very pleasant effect on people's moods. Many will be more optimistic, happy, outgoing and eager. It can also bring folks to indulge themselves and spend money, as self discipline is at a low. This would be a great day to have any type of celebration, and of course with Venus love relationships are favored. Typically, excellent energy for a wedding or a party. Also on the 1st the Sun trines Neptune which with Neptune's support of the Sun, we are more idealistic and understand a more spiritual level of reality. This increases our sensitivity to the more subtler aspects of the world around us. This is good for spending time alone to engage in activities like meditation, yoga, working of art, music or any creative project. To explore the more spiritual levels of reality from an emotional and intellectual perspective. This great for studying metaphysical or spiritual subjects and looking at your life to consider how you are doing in meeting your needs spiritually and materially. Idealistic romanticism may be a factor in our relationships today. Particularly in combination with Venus conjunct Jupiter happening at the same time, we need to remain grounded in seeing our loved ones are ordinary humans. This transit increases sensitivity to the subtler aspects of reality, with people experiencing a flash of ESP or other types of mystical experiences.
The 2nd is 4 - Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: stability through contemplating the stars, while Mercury sextiles Uranus, which brings new discoveries and new people into our lives with an overall sense of excitement and innovation as Mercury interacts with its higher octave planet Uranus. Flexibility is helpful to experience this transit with its excitement and interest, if you find this disruptive you may want to examine your attitude regarding deviating from the preordained plan of the day. This is good for looking at old problems, that have troubled you in the past, with fresh eyes. Challenges may be approached as new puzzles to solve as thinking becomes more inspired. Not a day where you will be content to follow your usual routine, so leave some room for spontaneity with new ideas and experiences being the reward of going with the flow. Also on the 2nd the Moon in Capricorn merges with Pluto and is challenged by Uranus which moves from having more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches, followed by folks acting hasty and jumping to conclusions that may not be correct.
July 3rd is 5 - Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: empowerment through planting seeds and making new connections, while Mercury sextiles Jupiter, which brings our attention to the larger issues in life. Many will find their minds wandering to thoughts about the future, as our hopes and wishes are more important under this influence. This is also good for thinking about the overall patterns in our lives. This is optimistic and brings a positive attitude. This is also good for business negotiations, contract discussions, and commercial transactions, as well as any dealing with the law. Travel also benefits so this would be good energy to start a trip, or perhaps research some far off place you wish to visit. Religious and philosophical subjects seem more attractive for investigation at this time. Also on the 3rd the Capricorn Moon harmonizes with Saturn bringing realistic expectations through being calm and reflective.
The 4th is 6 – Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: being in the flow through being flexible, as the Aquarius Moon is stimulated by Uranus and opposed by Jupiter which shifts from having pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, to later experiencing feelings of generosity.
July 5th is 7 - Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: reflection through releasing what no longer serves us, which brings the second occurrence Mercury sextile Venus bringing mental ease for solving problems. Mercury in harmony with Venus also brings a light hearted energy to the day. This is nice for using our minds for leisure, like reading for pleasure, going to an art show or concert, playing a game you enjoy, or just talking with friends. This is a day where we get a break from the heavier concerns of life. This is also excellent for communicating our feelings to the people we love. So tell someone you love them today. Express your appreciation and gratitude and I suspect it will come back to you in kind. Also an excellent day to appreciate beauty, so you may want to put yourself in a beautiful environment whether it's a home, museum, or a day in the country. Also on the 5th the Moon finds support from Mercury and Mars, is opposed by Venus, and challenged by Saturn. The day begins with being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, followed by pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, then later people feeling lonely or isolated, and finally feeling a little more confident than usual with the ability to assert ourselves in a positive manner.
The 6th is 8man-eek" : balance through being of service to others, with the Sun opposing Pluto coloring the day's energy, which can cause rather intense encounters with others or circumstances that expose something that was hidden or that we chose to ignore, for the purpose of transforming an old worn out pattern that can no longer serve us. This indicates power struggles with others, particularly people in authority. This day really has the hallmark of relationship difficulties that could possibly lead to breakups. You may want to keep that in mind rather than trying to repair the damage of today's words or deeds later on down the road. Overall we are talking about transformation on some level as a shift is required away from doing things the same old way. The Cancer Capricorn axis will bring tension related to balancing home and family with career and responsibilities in the outer world. This shift requires a major transformation where outer power reflects inner power, where transparency and integrity are key. Also on the 6th the Pisces Moon merges with Neptune, finds support from the Sun, and harmonizes with Pluto, which shifts from feel empathy for those around us, including the possibility of clairvoyance and telepathic experiences for those of us who are sensitive by nature, followed by feeling balance between our inner and outer worlds, and finally having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level.
July 7th is 9 - Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: patience experienced through being grateful for abundant relationships, while the Moon in Pisces is challenged by Mercury and supported by Saturn which moves from folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with, to later having a sober realistic view of life.
The 8th is 10 – Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: manifestation through appreciating creation, while Mercury enters Cancer after being in the Gemini for almost 7 weeks as part of the retrograde cycle. While in the sign of the Crab, people will be communicating and thinking more about home and family from the perspective of security. Also on the 8th 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. This transit favors spiritual practices, creativity, and compassion. Also on the 8th the the last quarter Moon in Aries is challenged by Mars, Pluto, and the Sun, and merges with Uranus which shifts from people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes, followed by having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, then later we encounter challenges to our daily routines, and finally people are feeling impulsive and acting rashly, with moods changing quickly and unexpectedly.
July 9th is 11 – Oc "awk" or Dog: resolution through enjoying family and friends, while the Moon is supported by Jupiter and Venus, and harmonizes with Mercury which moves from people having a pleasant sense of wellbeing, followed by enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions, and finally people feeling chatty and having numerous conservations.
The 10th is 12 - Chuen "shoe-in" or Monkey: understanding through creating something new, while the Taurus Moon harmonizes with Neptune and Mars and is supported by Pluto which shifts from being very sensitive to the moods of others, followed by having the desire to work independently from others, and finally feeling on a deeper more intense level under the influence of Pluto.
July 11th is 13 - Eb "eb" or Road : movement to the next stage serving your community, while the Moon in Taurus in harmony with Sun, challenged by Jupiter and Venus, and opposed by Saturn, with the day begins with feelings of inner and outer equanimity, followed benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment, the later having pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better, and finally feeling lonely and isolated.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Sun 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.
