Daily Magic: August 5, 2017 {On Navigating This Planetary Shift}


I’ve had a hard time figuring out which project to tackle first. Do I stick to my routine? Or do I follow my wild, passionate, soul inspirations?

With the Sun inconjunct Neptune, our concentration is off kilter. Plus we’re experiencing a lot of grounding Earth energy as well as inspiring Fire energy. These two elements aren’t always the best of friends.

{Fire signs gets along great with Air; and Earth signs are best at complementing Water.}

Fire energy is wonderful for pushing past unconscious blocks and stale, routine ruts. However, inspiration always needs balance with responsibility.

When we balance polarities, there’s always a certain order of the two aspects that works effectively. And there’s the other order that creates chaos, conflict, and impotency.

In this case, we want our carefree soul inspirations to guide our responsible routines, not the other way around.

If you’re inspired to create a project, reach out to someone, or push past a long-standing obstacle, now is the time to do it. But it’s important to only adjust your routine rather than throw out the whole structure.

We’re in the process of building self-love and true-self confidence. That’s what this planetary shift is about. It’s chaotic and intense. I’ve been experiencing heightened sensitivities, bodily aches, trauma clearing, revelations, pattern interrupts, breakthroughs, and an urge to clear out the clutter.

If we’ve been doing our inner work, this is our time to serve others and take our life mission to a new level – especially after the eclipses and Saturn stations direct at the end of the month. If we’re still trapped in debilitating insecurity, likely due to trauma or abuse, we’ve got some more healing to do. Today’s tarot card, the 7 of Swords promises success if we take responsibility.

Be careful today to avoid semantic hang-ups. Word analyzing, confusing arguments, and debate rhetoric are a sign of personal insecurity.

“Peace isn’t an experience free of challenges, free of rough and smooth, it’s an experience that’s expansive enough to include all that arises without feeling threatened.” Pema Chodron

7 of Swords

It’s time to move past an unconscious block. Understand the practical and material obstacles, and of the work to be done. You can expect success as long as you take responsibility. Allow challenges to bring out your most creative capabilities rather than bury you.

Today’s Planetary Aspects

Moon conjunct Pluto, Moon square Jupiter, Sun sesquisquare Chiron, Sun inconjunct Neptune, Moon sesquisquare Mercury

Sun inconjunct Neptune: This isn’t the best time to make long term decisions or to set any objectives in stone as self-confidence is low and misconceptions overwhelm focus and concentration.

Jupiter square Pluto: We can face and overcome insecurities with higher insights if we can avoid pushing ahead in an attempt to prove ourselves or overexert ourself in an attempt to level up. Watch for dogmatic proselytizing or taking on too many goals at once, placing counterproductive pressure on ourself or others. Attend to practical details instead of taking on more than can be realistically handled. Also watch for cynicism, depression, or feeling overwhelmed with self-imposed impossible standards.

Other Current Planetary Energies

Saturn trine Uranus: Innovative breakthroughs, and authentic changes especially for your career and social structures come easy now.

Saturn square Chiron: You’ll be pushed to grow up! through taking responsibility, practical self-care, staying objective, and releasing the past. Watch for self-punishing behavior.

Jupiter opposes Uranus: Watch for technology overwhelm or attention deficit disorder. But technology can foster healthy revolutions, as long as it’s in balance.

Jupiter in Libra: We’re evolving and growing this year primarily through relationships and social connections – believe it or not!

Uranus in Aries: We’re inclined to completely redesign something in our life in order to break free from limitations or constrictions.

Pluto in Capricorn: It’s time to get your finances in order and establish a solid, secure physical foundation. Just be careful not to be OCD about it, and watch for powerful external authorities trying to control your freedom.

North Node in Leo: It’s time to become the master of your own life and destiny.
