Planet Power - July 4, 2013

Why does the season of the Sun (summer) start with the sign ruled by the Moon? Party like the patriotic dogs you are, and then wake up on Moonday the 8th, clean up the mess and put it all back together. It’ll be a crazy week, with the New Moon on the 8th conjunct a retrograde Mercury. It’ll be time to pick up the pieces of your puzzle and go home. 

CANCER (6.20-7.21)  This is your weekend, leading up to an early Moonday morning New Moon in your sign, conjunct Mercury in retrograde. Wake up with the Sun and Moon, look beneath the illusion and know who you are, what you can accomplish, and what you’re here on Earth to do. Channel your depth of understanding (while Mercury is in apparent reverse motion ’til the Sun enters Leo) to explore the potential best use of your sensitivity. Wait to act ’til the Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd, and then it’s your world for a year.

LEO (7.22-8.21)  Your private party starts on the 9th. Smile and be cordial ’til then, and then wake up at dawn on the 9th and 10th and get to work — the earlier the better — before the/your world shows you just how crazy it can all get in the afternoon! Don’t sign nothing! Keep your sense of humor and on Wednesday the 10th, wake up to the unexpected and then go to lunch with someone you love. Hey! Isn’t it my turn to buy?

VIRGO (8.22-9.21)  It’s magically 50/50, as always with thee. Maybe you’re at a party, or a gathering. Someone is going/due to touch you — from across the room. You both nonchalantly circle closer, pretending not to notice each other — too much! But everyone else notices, as they all seem to disappear before your flashing eyes and you come face to face for your first hellos. Deja voudou(?) all over you “tou”… Another world, in some vague, ethereal, distant past, seems to be calling out in a strange language, “I love you”…

LIBRA (9.22-10.21)  Let the whole firecracker-driven, star-spangled- bannered, patriotic patriarchy blow apart. You’re more interested in the affairs of the/your heart! Who do you love? Who’s the king or queen of love that you’re dreaming of? I think you’ll find that whoever comes to mind first, rules your heart. In general, one’s first response is usually the heart, and the second, the mind… What did you find?

SCORPIO (10.22-11.20)  Back in your element. Follow a creek, or visit a lake, a stream or the “Mighty Mo” — all raining into a divine ocean of devotion…at least, in your mind. With the Sun and the Moon (on Moonday’s New Moon in Cancer) conjunct a retrograding Mercury running through your 9th House, I see traveling and education as the best designs for how to spend your time. It’s hard — but worth it.

SAGITTARIUS (11.21-12.20)  Hang loose at your pad for 2 more weeks, and it should all just naturally fall together. There’s plenty to do, right? Here or there, your mother ha$ (clue!) an idea for you…

CAPRICORN (12.21-1.18)  Hide for 2 horny weeks…

AQUARIUS (1.19-2.17)  Problems and/with “Miss Understandings” at work. Yeah, it’s a girl/female at the root of the confusion. What else is new? 

PISCES (2.18-3.19) If you’re blind, it’s because you’re NOT seeing. If you’re deaf, it’s ’cuz you’re not listening. And if you’ve lost your feeling…? This world here is magically mirroring us. Any love in your world? You give love, you get love — you don’t, you won’t. Are you hearing me? Did you see what I was trying to tell you? Can you feel me?

ARIES (3.20-4.18)  Your problems are self-induced. I’d have you read Capricorn, but how does one hide from oneself? Money! Lots more/of money! Religion. Form over content. Duty over honor. Money over meaning. Work on your home and garden, do some landscaping, indulge in photographic nostalgia and listen to your mama for a change, instead of asking her for some…

TAURUS (4.19-5.19)  Confusion is coming in from your brothers, sisters, family and friends, and will be affecting the go of your everyday flow. Don’t sign any papers — especially concerning the house — ’til after the 22nd! May I suggest, for your meditation, that blind men/women see in the dark, and since we all seem to be stumbling, let’s try stumbling forward? That’ll confuse ’em!

GEMINI (5.20-6.19)  It’s you. It’$ money. It’$ your money. Somebody’s due to be “crabby” to you, out of the blue/green of an ocean scene. You’ll know what I mean after you surf through, Jellybean. By the last week in July, you’ll know what I mean and why. Wait ’til then, my friend. Be as one on vacation, without a destination.
