Planet Flash : Week of 8/11/19
By Nancy Foley of Cienna Moon
Any shocks to our system over the past week have been wake up calls from Uranus. Today it goes retrograde at 10:27 PM causing us to reevaluate some area of our life. What disturbed us in the outer world now reverberates inside each of us. It can bring a revelation around what truly matters for each of us and/or for all.
Literally we are seeing when you “open fire” on any group or person a bullet has no conscience. We are also seeing that anger is very much like a bullet too. I once knew someone who said I never throw things when I am angry because I know I will have to clean it up later. We are living in that place NOW; cleaning up angry people’s stuff!
We are in the aftermath of what anger and divisiveness can do. We have been here before some of us; it was called 9/11/01. Fear and depression were traveling companions throughout this country and perhaps even the world for many years. What became important to our healing process was the uniting for a cause. Yet this time around the cause isn’t so easy to define or defend. The rhetoric related to gun violence has many different factors and factions. The conversation’s focus needs to shift I think. Perhaps if we used a bullet has no conscience as our motto it might help. Perhaps if we had data and significant information on the cost of gun violence in our country it could awaken us all to what we are dealing with for decades to come.
There is a financial cost that includes medical, emergency, and economic hardships like lost wages or medical bills that are beyond our budgets. There is an emotional cost that has an immediate impact and a much longer impact. My grandparent was murdered and though I never knew him everything about his family’s life and as a result my life was impacted. There is a moral cost to our soul as a country and a people.
Then we have the societal impact where we begin to doubt what we stand for or who we stand with. It’s so much easier when the bad guys are not like us but from where I stand the bad guys are too many (because they include organizations, government representatives, and people who make a business from the violence) and the good guys are too few!
Perhaps what is needed is a revolutionary approach to how we handle the situation. If we taxed every gun and bullet sold with the tax money going to the victims of gun violence and their community’s support programs maybe we could shift the focus. I am sure there are many other unique approaches to the current situation that could be found if we wanted to find them. Hopefully while Uranus is retrograde some new solutions will be brought forth.
Sunday 8/11/19 Jupiter goes direct today at 9:37 AM. Over the past four months we have been given answers to questions we haven’t even asked yet. It is now time to accept our ignorance on certain matters rather than assert our beliefs or assume we know the answers. An open mind is hungry to be filled while a closed mind is on guard for any intrusion or disruption. Our saturation point is being tested on so many levels these days how do we keep ourselves in balance? That is one of the questions that Jupiter and Mars may help us answer in the month of September. For now we are best served by monitoring our energy levels. Take time to consider what brings us down and what brings us up? What do we really need to know and when do we need to know it? Most importantly, where does our sense of knowing come from? With Jupiter in Sagittarius we are reminded that knowing comes from synchronicities and inner truth; what is IS until it isn’t.
Mercury changes into Leo around 3:46 PM and we are less absorbed in our feelings now. We start to feel a bolder sense of self-expression and we are more confident than we previously felt. We want to put our personal signature on life at this time. In the next couple of weeks as Mercury and Jupiter are close in degrees we may find our creative signature is what puts us ahead. We are encouraged to speak up for ourselves and promote our goals for the future.
As I mentioned earlier in this post Uranus is also changing signs today (10:27 PM). During this six month cycle we will take altruism with us on our journey of reorientation and the quest for a good life.
Monday 8/12/19 just because you can’t see doesn’t mean it isn’t happening. Today may be a day where doubt and uncertainty overtakes our sense of purpose. We may need to remember that much of what we have recently experienced is yet to be acknowledged. Now that Jupiter is direct we have approximately four months to put all of that into the proper context.
Tuesday 8/13/19 those who have been pushing too hard or too fast will find that they are getting resistance. Something stretched to its limits may indeed snap back.
The moon shifts to Aquarius around 11:37 AM. This sets the stage for some point/counter point type of experiences when Mercury in Leo and Moon in Aquarius oppose each other around 4:34 PM. Make note of what is being said and what is being felt as they are keys to understanding the full moon on Friday.
Wednesday 8/14/19 I hear today could be a “Mexican Standoff”. I looked that up in the dictionary and here is what it said…Mexican standoff definition is – a situation in which no one emerges a clear winner; also : deadlock. Is the Universe telling us something by this message? I think it might be about changing focus from divisiveness to co-creating. We are better together than we are apart!
This message may be reinforced when Venus and Sun meet up finishing a cycle that began during the Venus retrograde last fall. Do you remember a longing of connection or intimacy somewhere in your life during the late fall of 2018? Did you then go seeking a greater sense of fulfillment or purpose? Today the message is received and your connection with the divine is strengthened. Indeed you WERE only waiting for this moment to ARRIVE!
We may be driven to act on a deeper impulse for change or action around 8:00 PM. Make sure the energy you are exerting now gets you to where you are meant to be. Don’t try to push the river at this time.
Thursday 8/15/19 brings the full moon at 8:31 AM. I am being told “last year” as I write. So it seems the Universe wants us to see this full moon in context of last year’s lessons around self-love and group participation. Who are we serving best when we serve ourselves? I leave you to answer that question. However I will say that with the 23rd degree of both Leo and Aquarius highlighted we might be pivoting between a certain fearlessness and sense of accomplishment. Perhaps this is about the audacity to hope the world can find a better tomorrow! We are so great when we are all tuned into the divine order of life brought through the Universal consciousness. Today’s message is about co-creating through the cosmic heart to find “at-one-ment”. If you are looking for a good musical reference may I refer you to “Who the Cap Fit” by Bob Marley.
This may seem to be an odd choice if you listen to the words at first but it speaks of how we are both good and bad. We aren’t looking for a savior but rather a healthy dose of understanding. Knowing who we are and seeing who someone is brings the understanding. Don’t judge or try to convert just observe and love. We are all the right spices in the stew of life.
Moon shifts to Pisces around 11:51 PM bringing some desire for surrender and compassion. Find the flow and immerse yourself there in the days ahead.
Friday 8/16/19 sometimes when you see one thing differently you can gain awareness or closure. Today is one of those days. At first what might seem odd or unusual serves to unlock our doorway into the kingdom of heaven within. We have firsthand knowledge of something so much greater than we could once see before.
Saturday 8/17/19 today mars sits at the highest degree of Leo. We are emboldened by our desire for love and trust. Time to queue up “Bold as Love” by Jimi Hendrix; it’s all there if you can go there and trust where it wants to take you. The challenge is whether you can shift your consciousness from self-concern or fear to compassion.
Sunday 8/18/19 mars moves into Virgo around 1:19 AM. Any regrets based on last night’s actions will find their way to you today. A sense of buyer’s remorse could surround us today. What seemed like an exercise in love might be an experience in healing over the 3 weeks. Did you bite off more than you could chew? If so you are going to have problems with your digestion!
Moon shifts to Aries around 12:34 PM. In our rush to get somewhere we might actually be damaging the ground we cover. Take time to analyze the situation before moving ahead and if you do Monday will bring better solutions and/or results.
We have limited openings this weekend. If you are interested in booking a weekend appointment please contact us now at 781-447-3993 by voice or text. We do have some remaining openings earlier in the week.
Don’t let fear quench your love. Love is the flame that brings light to the darkness.
