July 28, 2011 – Cross of change, release and deep healing

The waning MOON in Cancer this morning has entered the realm of the Cardinal cross of 2011.  MOON squared URANUS and opposed PLUTO, Pre-dawn. We are transforming in this cross, which changes our self, relationship, home and work life!

VENUS moves from Cancer to creative fiery LEO today at 7:59 am.  Our love is passionate, creative and alive in the summer!

MOON in Cancer sextiles JUPITER in Taurus and we LOVE to be at home when we can.  We love to enjoy the closest beauty to home and to eat food that nourishes us. Moon is waning so it is a quiet inward resting time and this aspect encourages us to enjoy the beauty and sensual pleasures of our inner home.

MERCURY moves from Leo to VIRGO at 11am pdt and our communicator self is moving from passionate fire to grounded detailed earth, better for writing and editing.  This mercury is direct for a few more days, before going RETROGRADE to head BACK into Leo on August 2nd.  We can enjoy these last few days of Mercury direct to solidify plans and sign contracts, before we face three weeks of Mercury retrograde where plans and contracts may go in circles or appear to follow non-linear rules.  We have until AUGUST 2nd to make plans that might stick.  Mercury retrograde is nothing to be afraid of, just a time to be fluid, flexable and open to all the plan changes that arise.

MOON squares SATURN (in relationship Libra) and we’re in the changing relationship part of the cross, with moon waning, destroying and releasing all that is not of the future and our highest new expression in relationship of the future.

MERCURY opposes NEPTUNE at 9:03 pm pdt and we are having a conversation with the divine and big WATER in our lives. How do we each talk to our water?  We are made of water and water nourishes and heals us.  We can spend this evening thanking water as we have a kind of FULL WATER MERCURY.  We are held by the waters of the earth and gratitude is our key to receiving more of these watery benefits.

Today we are in the second to last day of the lunar cycle that began with a SOLAR ECLIPSE. We are deeply releasing, letting go and completing all things that arose in the eclipse cycle, preparing once again, to begin anew, with fresh creative cycle energy at the new moon on July 30th at 11:44am.  We can enjoy the dark deep quiet release time until then.
