Waning Moon in Aquarius

Moon Void at 10:01 am.

July 23

Today has been a rather odd day. I arrived at work very early greeted by seven or so crows on the roof of the building.  The air had the quality of Fall and the whole day has felt like the pressure that existed for the days prior had suddenly been released.  As I was driving to work I was thinking about the next transit of the moon into Pisces tomorrow at 2:22p.m. and what emotional stirrings that would evoke.  Apparently there was a huge thunder storm (and lightening) last night which I slept soundly through. Usually the air feels clean and vibrant the next day, but not the case.  Although there was less a feeling of pressure, the air seemed denser as though consisting of finer particles.

The moon went void today at 10:01am and so I am just trying to relax my usual pushing to make breakthroughs  that accompanies an Aquarius Full Moon (Aquarius is my natal Sun) and see how much further and more clearly I can see without the unnecessary pressure.  Not much to write- it’s just one of those days!

Day Fourteen: Riding the Waves

Waxing Full in Capricorn

Void of Course 11:53am

July 21

Today marks the holding point before the incoming energies of Aquarius and the fullness of Lady Moon.  It  feels as though these energies are primed and ready to burst forth. It reminds me of  how the overwhelming pressure of water on a dam at times proves too much; allowing the waters to break through flowing freely, strongly and of  their own accord.

The moon spent most of the morning hours in Capricorn, and I tried to fully embrace  the proverbial scaling of the heights and reaching into the depths  that typifies Capricorn.  After working my Full Moon Ritual last night and calling on the energies of Cardinal Earth to anchor this work, I bolstered that goal this morning with a short meditation envisioning myself fully grounded and aligned with all parts of myself functioning like the buoy in the midst of a stormy sea.  It rises and crests remaining intact despite the chaos and disruption surrounding.

Ironically, today is Sunday so I am turning my attention towards the tasks to be accomplished for the week, the reaching out that is required and the social collaboration that is needed.  All of this on the evening before the Moon reaches its fullness in the sign of Aquarius-the global citizen with foci of attention on the greater humanity.

With most of the day having been spent with the moon void and transiting from one sign to the other, I am feeling as though today is the last day to ride the waves of Cancer’s crests. This void is the neutrality before entering its new sign.  The Sun is positioning to leave the sign of Cancer tomorrow and will enter the astrological energy of Leo for whom it is the ruling planet. So, I will gather all the skill I have honed attuning to the strength of the Sun’s light shining fully in the intuitive mysteries of the lunarscape of Cancer and see where my point of balance has shifted so I may continue the movement forward with each rising of the emotional waters as this journey continues.

Day 13: Rise to the Occasion

Waxing Moon in Capricorn

The morning saw the moon in its void state, so integration and holding steady are the goals.  I relaxed into the flow and the morning was quiet and peaceful in contrast to the edginess I felt the past two days.

The Moon transitioned into the astrological sign of Capricorn at 2:39pm. Capricorn is a Cardinal sign (first outpouring) and of the element of Earth. There is the scope of expanse that is typical of Capricorn; often considered the Seagoat- who can traverse the earthy spaces and depths of the oceans and has the sure footed ability to navigate to the heights of the tallest mountain.  Earth relates to the physical and mundane realms and Capricorn’s ruling planet of Saturn is the great keeper of time and master regulator. Pulling all of these energies together lends itself to having stability as the starter for your efforts, but beware of inertia and over calculating every action.

Tonight I did the Full Moon.  My intentions were that of anchoring the work that has been accomplished with this project in the fullness of its expression.  Using the energy of Capricorn held the intent of anchoring it in the physical with option of expansion and being held in a space that is time no time- eternal and structured.  Using this Cardinal energy will carry forward the seeds that have been planted towards deeper connection to my emotions and intuitive nature as the Moon waxes full in Aquarius on Monday. In natural order of the astrological wheel, the flow of movement and maturation moves from burgeoning earth (physical) towards mind that is informed by all the lessons that have been brought forward through the other signs of the zodiac.

Lens of Sight

Matter of continuum
Depth and breath
Of thin air and
One step taken
Carefully- slowly in pace.

Diving deep to feel the
Sting of new beginnings
Structure and form
Taking shape as
Pause recoils.

The Master waits at the
Gate and the Adept
Reaches out gingerly
The hand withdraws.

And the steepness of drop
Reverberates at the base
Of darkened well
Gold coins falling as leaves
Carried within the
Space of airy breath.

Once again, the ascent begins anew
The space of time claiming
The continuum of earthy

One step taken
Carefully
Slowly
In
Pace.

Waxing Moon in Virgo

Void of Course 11:26am

Sun in Cancer

July13Moon

The Moon is void for most of the day, moving into the astrological sign of Libra at 3:41am-tomorrow morning.

Today is about holding steady, allowing space to integrate and find the beginnings of balance. The finishing touches of Virgo’s analysis and scrutiny in its most mature stage and then repose, rest and stasis.  Wanting to stay under the wire.

No pushing, no effort . Just simply allowed myself to settle in to a day of coalescing and riding the wave of the status quo that has been created from these past days work.  I held no expectations and did no reaching out beyond what came to me in the natural flow of the day’s energies.

Feeling like just floating on a surface that is placid and calm in complete surrender; but beware of the undertow!

Tomorrow morning I will be posting a Pathworking written for energy of Cancer as a bonus to use as you will throughout the remainder of this journey. This will be in addition to the usual evening post.  Enjoy!
