This is the "Care and feeding of a New World Age" report for Gregorian date of July 10th 2016 and 1 – Caban "kah-ban" or Earth in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, with Venus entering Leo, followed by Mercury entering Leo, the Capricorn Full Moon and the Sun entering Leo.
July 10th is 1 – Caban "kah-ban" or Earth carries the themes of natural rhythms, synchronizing the heart with Mother Earth, inspiration, the powers of creation, earthquakes, ancient wisdom, and flowing with the natural order. The Maya believed that the same energy that is the soul of the heart also resides in the Earth. The day symbol for earth also represents the interconnectedness of our emotions and the Earth’s emotions. Ian Lungold wrote “Sometimes Earth’s delicate sensitivities are upset resulting in quakes of emotion even the display of volcanic temper.” Neurophysicists have discovered that our hearts radiate the body’s strongest electromagnetic frequency in a torus field. This field is holographic and arcs out and returns along the axis of the heart and extends from the pelvic floor to the crown of the head. The Earth is also the center of a holographic electromagnetic torus field, as is the solar system and the galaxy. It's interesting to note that because of their holographic nature, there is the belief that there is only one universal torus field, which means our hearts are connected to the Earth, the solar system, the galaxy, and ultimately the universe. It’s fractal, where we don’t have a part, but the whole represented in each of us. These thirteen days are best used to change our patterns to be more heart centered and in balance with our Earth Mother.
Before I get into the daily energy for 1 – Caban, on the 10th all the planets appear to be moving forward from our vantage point on Earth, except Saturn, Chiron, Neptune, and Pluto which appears 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. Retrograde Saturn in Sagittarius delays success until perseverance and patience are learned. Sagittarius themes are travel, education, adventure, expanding our horizons, and planning for upcoming experiences. Saturn brings the details to the grand overview of Sagittarius. Saturn retrograde is a task master that demands we take responsibility to review our beliefs while in Sagittarius. Chiron retrograde 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. If you find yourself recalling painful events or situations between now and when Chiron turns direct November 30th, it is advisable remain conscious while dealing with these uncomfortable feelings as they will reveal the path to healing and letting go of what no longer serves a purpose in our upcoming journey. 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. Pluto the planet of transformation through a death and rebirth cycle, is retrograde, which is about reviewing the past, and is a time of releasing anything from the past that is a burden to our new path. Pluto represents death, completion, and in Capricorn, the breakdown of structures, to bring about transformation.
Ok let's look at the daily vibrational energy for this trecena.
July 10th is 1 – Caban "kah-ban" or Earth: unity experienced through gratitude for Mother Earth in the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, while the Sun sextiles Jupiter which is very positive for almost any activity. It brings a positive frame of mind that can be applied toward success. This "lucky" transit influences activities to work out as planned. Great energy to be with friends or work harmoniously in group situations as there is a strong energy to be included in something bigger then oneself. This is also good to reflect on our lives and goals, but it does caution against blindly assuming everything will work out perfectly, so we might want to review any plans for the future. With Jupiter involved it is easier to see the big picture. This also helps in relationships with people in authority as there is a desire to be "at one" with the sources of universal energy, and on the most mundane level that includes the desire to get along with those in power. Also on the 10th Mercury trines Mars, which is good for mental work, with more energy than usual and the willingness to tackle difficult problems. People will be speaking their minds, not to get into fights, but to get their ideas out into the open. This transit brings confidence to express beliefs without fear of letting others know where you stand. This can also bring a certain boldness and innovativeness to plans made at this time. This might be a good day to be aware of others' forceful opinions, and avoid having a conflict when voicing our own opinions. Also on the 10th the Moon in Virgo makes no angles and is void of course until moving into Libra, 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 11th is 2 – Etznab "etz-nob" or Flint: duality experienced through being introspective, while Mercury squares Uranus which as planet octaves, brings tension between our lower and higher minds. If we can remain flexible this can bring a fascination with new information and experiences, but without flexibility this could be nerve wracking as surprises and upsets become bothersome when the day does not go as planned. This could bring some folks epiphanies or other lightening fast new information, that if nor paid attention to, may be gone just as quick. A recording device may be a good way to capture these thoughts for review on another day. Use this time for brainstorming and leave analysis and adding detail for later as concentration is difficult under this influence. Also not a great day to make important decisions because of the impulsive and hasty nature of this energetic. Also on the 11th Mercury trine Chiron brings greater understanding of current emotional situations, as well as past wounds and greater opportunities for healing to occur, which will have folks being conscious of and talking about their wounds so they can continue the healing process. Also on the 11th the first quarter Libra Moon harmonizes with Saturn, and is challenged by Pluto and the Sun, which shifts from wanting to be alone in our thoughts and feelings, to later having the compulsion to act in ways that may not be good for us in the long run, and finally brings challenges to following a daily routine.
July 12th is 3 – Cauac "cow-ack" or Storm: taking action through recognizing the gifts in adversity, while Venus enters Leo which brings flamboyant and dramatic effect on our romances and social gatherings. People may be more inspired to splurge on gifts for loved ones over the next three plus weeks. This lifts peoples spirits and brings more joy and creativity to our interpersonal relationships. Leo rules the heart. So this can be a time to connect with the heart of our personal relationships. Also on the 12th the Moon is opposed by Uranus, and challenged by Mercury and Venus which influences the emotional energy as it moves from folks acting emotionally excitable and impulsive, followed by folks being critical in their communications particularly with the people they have intimate relationships with, and finally pleasant energy for being with the others we want to know better.
The 13th is 4 – "ah-how" : stability through honoring the wisdom and memory of our ancestors, while Mercury enters Leo which brings two weeks of more exuberant expression 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 13th the Scorpio Moon finding support from Neptune has our innermost subconscious fantasies and daydreams confusing reality, which may not be great for accomplishing much work.
July 14th is 5 – Imix "e-meesh" or Crocodile: empowerment through nurturing new beginnings, while the Moon in Scorpio harmonizes with Pluto and Jupiter, finds support from the Sun, and merges with Mars, which changes from having deep emotions finding their way to the surface and felt on a profound level, to later feeling in the flow and having a sense of wholeness, followed by having a sense of harmony within ourselves and supports any type of group activity and relationships with the opposite sex, and finally experiencing irritable moods and critical communications.
The 15th is 6 – Ik "eek" or Wind: being in the flow through communication, while the Sagittarius Moon finds support from Mercury and Venus which shifts from being more in touch with our feelings and able to share them with others, to later enjoying pleasant feelings and social interactions.
July 16th is 7 Akbal "awk-bol" or Night: reflection through contemplating the stars, while the Sun squares Uranus which is a disruptive transit adding to the likelihood of upsets and behaviors that are upsetting to others. Also unexpected mechanical problems, a sudden argument, or separation within a relationship. With the Sun involved we are talking about a conflict between egos. Folks will also be more likely to feel restless, so it might be important to be conscious of this possibility, and find a way to allow the restless energy to express itself, rather than being shocked by how it gets expressed unconsciously. This brings to the accident prone energy, and a time to realize those accidents are not happening to you, you are creating them. The drive to do something free and liberating is strong, just try to exercise enough consciousness to give it expression without causing damage to your life. With the Sun Pluto opposition on the 7th, we have a week of change, disruption, and transformation of our routines and settled parts of our lives where we've become sedentary and complacent. Also on the 16th Mercury conjunct Venus which stimulates our appreciation of beauty, whether it be art, poetry, music, people, or nature. Its optimistic in nature and often brings easy going pleasant experiences. In Leo people may be more likely to dramatically express their love for others. This is a merging of the mental and emotional realms within ourselves, so folks may experience concepts with emotions or express feelings in an intellectual manner. This is wonderful for creativity or any type of artistic expression. People find the right words to express in conversation or in writing. This transit can be favorable for financial and business dealings, along with scientific research by seeing patterns in the universe and appreciating them aesthetically. Also on the 16th the Sun trines Mars which is positive for being ourselves and is wonderful energy for working alone on a project, not because we can't get along with others, but because we will not want to compromise our vision to accommodate the opinions of others. People feel physically vigorous when Mars positively interacts with the Sun, so channeling this energy into physical activity is recommended, not only for the health of the body but also for its uplifting effect on the mind and spirit. This is a good time to look at various projects begun in the past but not completed to assess where they are in development and our motivations in initiating them. What can be completed soon? If there have been recent new beginnings, are there imbalances that need adjusting? Looking at our own needs and criteria will help us make meaningful the work we engage in at this time. Also on the 16th the Moon in Sagittarius is challenged by Neptune and Jupiter which moves from daydreams and fantasies feeling more important than reality, to later benevolent and generous feelings for those in our immediate environment.
The 17th is 8 – Kan "con" or Seed or Lizard: balance through planting seeds and making new connections, with the Sun trine Chiron which is helpful to support healing, opening the heart, awakening to our transformation, and releasing past wounds as the Sun illuminates the emotional realm to bring understanding and wisdom. Also on the 17th Mars trines Chiron which is supportive for taking action to heal wounds, especially those related to sex and aggression. It brings courage to release the past and allow healing. Also on the 17th the Sagittarius Moon finding support from Uranus bringing the impulse to engage in activities that make us feel more alive.
July 18th is 9 – Chicchan "chee-chan" or Serpent: patience experienced through being flexible, while the Capricorn Moon harmonizes with Neptune, and merges with Pluto which changes from having a greater sensitivity to others' emotions with possible psychic impressions for those who are open, to later we have more intense moods rising to the surface from deep in our psyches.
The 19th is 10 – Cimi "key-mee" or Transformation: manifestation through releasing what no longer serves us, while we have the Capricorn Full Moon at 27 degrees 40 minutes, almost 28 degrees Capricorn, supported by Jupiter, challenged by Uranus, stimulated by Mars, and opposed by the Sun in Cancer. 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 Jupiter supporting feelings of inner and outer equanimity, with Uranus challenging folks to act hasty and jump to conclusions that may not be correct, and Mars bringing the desire to work independently from others. The Moon in Capricorn can be depressing, with Mars and Uranus involved it could bring unexpected anger. The saving grace of this Full Moon could be Jupiter in Virgo grounding our inner expansion. The Capricorn Full Moon wants us to apply discipline and structure to create something in the material world. The polarity of the Cancer Sun illuminates our emotions and our connection to family, home, and community. This is the Full Buck Moon to Native Americans when the buck deer grow new antlers. Also it is known as the Full Thunder Moon because of the prevalence of thunder storms during July. Also on the 19th Mercury trines Saturn in the fire signs of Leo, and Sagittarius. Saturn supporting Mercury which may bring our thoughts to more serious concerns. This brings concentration and attention to details. This is careful energy to be methodical and painstaking. This is good for organizing your environment or your life from a conservative and practical perspective. Counsel from an elder is favored under this influence or you may just want to be alone in your thoughts.
July 20th is 11 – man-eek": resolution through being of service to others, while Venus trines 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. Also on the 20th the Aquarius Moon harmonizing with Saturn, and opposed by Venus and Mercury which shifts from having realistic expectations through being calm and reflective, to later pleasant energy for enjoying sensual experiences and rich food with a caution against overindulgence, and followed by some feeling a real conflict between feelings and reason and others having fruitful expressions of their deeper awareness either internally or with another.
The 21st is 12 – Lamat "la-maught" or Star or Rabbit: understanding through being grateful for abundant relationships, while the Moon in Aquarius harmonizes with Uranus and is challenged by Mars which moves from having pleasant yet restless feelings craving emotional excitement to do something outside the daily routine, to later people feeling irritable which could lead to needless disputes.
July 22nd is 13 – Muluc "moo-luke" or Offering: movement to the next stage through appreciating creation, with the Sun enters Leo, which is its place of rulership, for the next month's time we can expect more drama and creative energy. People may seem more witty, vivacious, chatty, so expect life to turn a little more entertaining when the sun shines on the King of the Jungle. The Sun joining Mercury and Venus we have a pride in Leo. Also on the 22nd the Pisces Moon is challenged by Saturn which may have people feeling lonely or isolated.
So no matter what energies are affecting you during this 1 Earth 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.
