Let Us Honor the Journey of Becoming 🙏

July 2-8, 2023


This will be a transpersonal week that requires reflection and endurance through circumstances we likely won’t have entire control over. Though daunting it may seem, there are always lessons of uplifting opportunities crawling on the wallpaper and out of the woodwork. We face the depths, we climb out of the thick and muddy past, and we rinse off and gaze into the future with tired but hopeful eyes. Let’s honor the journey of becoming!

Venus in Leo square Uranus in Taurus

As we reach for the stars today, our drive to expand how much we are recognized for our knowledge and wisdom might only be thwarted by how much more we need to know and understand before attaining such legitimate recognition. There may be some relational hiccoughs along the way, perhaps clashing with others in ways that challenge our values and self-esteem. Using this opportunity to consider reshaping those values would not be a bad idea.


Due to the nature of these aspects today, there is good deal of resistance followed by ample opportunity for mutability and transforming our perspectives, especially related to our awareness, elevated consciousness, and spiritual perspective of life. Facing inevitable situations that may be beyond our control could be par for today’s course, so after a morning of fiery excitement and drive, being prepared to let go of where things lead is called for.

Moon in Capricorn trine Jupiter in Taurus
*Full Moon in Capricorn at 7:38am EDT*
Moon in Capricorn opposite Mercury in Cancer


The grounding pragmatic effects of today’s configurations can really help instill a sense of accomplishment and feeling caught up, as long as we have spent the weekend working our way towards this. As Moon’s open flowing trine to Jupiter blesses the Full Moon shortly afterwards, we can develop a much greater sense of where things stand regarding our achievements, reputation, and capacity to move forward confidently. 


The values we should all be considering on a regular basis in our lives amplify exactly what it is we are trying to accomplish. Those values roll hand-in-hand down the road beside us in a sidecar, navigating our decisions and direction. This is exactly why we need to be aware of what sincerely means the most to us deep within. 


The Full Moon asks that we seek to explore the potentials inherent within us to make pragmatic decisions that facilitate positive growth and achievement, while at the same time recognizing the distractive tendencies our emotional struggles can impose upon us. These emotional struggles may need to be processed more fully, but we must learn how to set them aside and tuck them away when more pressing practical interests need to be addressed. The emotional dust must settle to see our way forward more clearly.

Today we pivot towards the future, despite yesterday’s pragmatism and search for clarity and control amidst the fog and chaos challenging us again, likely bringing us into the thick of some of the baggage we carried over the seas in the past few months. While the baggage may be heavy and some of the compartments within unopened for quite some time, if we take a peek inside and commit to working through some of what is in there we may find it to be useful compost for the garden we are tending in our hearts and minds. 


Growth occurs when we face challenges, commit to conquering them, and develop healthy boundaries and resolutions in the process. So much easier said than done, our goals should be reasonable and achievable, with enough slack in the lines to allow for some unresolved issues to be addressed at a later time. We must be mindful not to completely absorb everything that seems to be weighing on us all at once. Redesigning our minds in ways that can compartmentalize and prioritize what needs to be addressed can massively help relieve some of the stress we unknowingly and unconsciously carry with us each day.

Moon in Aquarius square Jupiter in Taurus
Moon in Aquarius sextile Chiron in Aries


There is opportunity for an elevation of our vibration from the mire of sadness, pain, and despair to the hopeful and future-focused sparkles of inspiration and determination today. As is often the case with Aquarius, we can notice how much those pits of sorrow chain us to the past and leave us wallowing in the stagnant waters of anguish. Though emotional detachment can sometimes be an escape mechanism for good or ill, the value of doing so can sometimes be the sanity ticket out of what plagues us too much. 


Working hard to navigate the misty bayous of our feelings can be so exhausting sometimes, leaving us fatigued, confused, and unable to optimally function. Learning how to detach in healthy ways, even if it is a night out with a loved one or some friends, helps relieve the tension and stresses brought about by those lower realms. Let’s refresh our weary souls with the company of uplifting and cheerful friends today or tonight!

Moon in Aquarius opposite Venus then Mars in Leo


We can find ourselves a little sideways this morning with a need to address some concerns we might have for our mental or emotional health. These concerns are likely rooted in the aforementioned pain and suffering we have endured from past events in our lives. Fortunately, these remnants of our past should be slip sliding away as the day waxes and wanes. But any distinct recollections that crop up should be duly noted for future reference when we might feel more stable and inclined to face and address them. 


The elevating and uplifting potentials inherent in the Aquarius Moon reflect the exuberant display of excitement for life that Venus and Mars in Leo instill upon us. Wiping away the smeary mess made by the conglomeration of our minds and emotions troubled by our past traumas can allow us to focus on where we are going and why. As mentioned in yesterday’s forecast, sometimes learning how to detach at the appropriate time can save us from feeling lost or confused, thus sharpening our ability to carve and sculpt a more ideal future for ourselves, our loved ones, our friends, and our community.

Moon in Pisces sextile Jupiter in Taurus
Moon in Pisces trine Sun in Cancer


Our values, our resources, our confidence, our opportunities, and the handle we have on all of them come into stark focus today. Though there may be a sense of disarray and unknowing in the air, we must trust in the natural unfolding rhythm of life that is innate in the processes of our unconsciousness. Think about how we breathe, our hearts beat, our brains wander and observe, and our bodies react without us being fully conscious of it. This is the flow of today, weaving us through the tapestry to notice our resources and innermost values and to intuitively understand how we feel about them.


Clarity and foresight may slowly develop throughout the day, helping us see what might be swimming in the oceans of our unconsciousness. Imagine the cloudy waters of a seaweed beach after a storm morphing into the pristine turquoise waters of the tropics. If our ship can surf the swells from one sea to the other, we may just find what we need to know today. Polarized sunglasses can’t hurt.

Moon ingresses Aries


Those clarifying glimpses of the beautiful and terrible creatures inhabiting the seas of our unconsciousness continue to become more and more clear today, especially if we can finagle a healthy surrender to needing to be in complete control. The winds can change, the seas ebb and flow, and storms can emerge from nowhere, but if our resolve and faith are strong the buoyancy of our souls can weather it all. It is a good day to trust that what will be will be. 


As the afternoon brings a reflection upon our foggy ruins of time, we eventually emerge out of the turnstiles ready to lay down our burdens and make things happen. Our drive to move on from all the worries we have endured is very strong this evening, decompressing our entire being with a renewed fire deep within. Though the aspects that influence our lives can often impart strenuous work and challenging circumstances that require us to improvise navigating, there are also aspects that dispel those difficult ones, enlightening us to the grace and magnificence of life on Earth. May we all learn to unite, help one another, and endure our days together with compassion and empathy.

Though this week might bring some uncontrollable and/or painful moments, we would do well to remember Leonard Cohen’s sage wisdom that there is a crack in everything, and that’s how the light gets in. And that light shows us what we need to know and where we need to go. Saturday brings the blessing of new beginnings we can look forward to with Moon moving into passionate and individualistic Aries, helping us take back some control of our circumstances.
