Eclipse Season and July 2019 Specials

An eventful July begins with a Total Solar Eclipse on July 2 at 10 degrees Cancer. If you have any personal planets at 10 degrees Cancer or Capricorn, you’ll feel this one in a big way. Ditto for anyone with 10 degrees Libra/Aries, which will be squared (creates friction/action) by the eclipse.

On July 8th, Mercury moves retrograde, conjuncting Mars in fiery Leo, which may increase impulsive action. You might also feel more tension than usual between acting and thinking. On the 9th, Chiron (wounded healer/deep inner wound) goes retrograde at 5 Aries, which will affect anything you have around 5 degrees Aries/Libra/Cancer/Capricorn. We’ve also got upcoming astro-weather involving Mars/Uranus, Venus/Pluto, and the Sun/North Node. You can find a more detailed overview of July 2019’s intense astrology here.

On July 16th, we’ll have a Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees Capricorn. If that sounds familiar, have a look back at Ann Kreilkamp’s discussion about the upcoming Pluto/Saturn conjunction. Anything between 18- 24 degrees in Capricorn/Cancer/Aries/Libra will get extra-activated by the Lunar Eclipse and the South Node (currently at 18 Capricorn). South Node deals with karma, past lifetimes, old patterns. Because some key public figures have natal placements connected with the eclipses, we’re likely to see some pivotal events on the world stage, too.

JULY 2019 SPECIALS

Realizing the intensity of July for many individuals, along with pressure for a collective karmic shift, this month’s specials offer extra support tailored to these background energies.

40-Minute Astrology Special

$133 instead of the usual $177, this 40-Minute Astrology Special can address “why you’re here,” deep soul longings, how to bring more soul into the workplace or your relationship, and/or how your natal chart and transits may be affecting your health or finances. More importantly, the reading offers clues to maximize your own unique Soul’s process, so that you get the most growth and satisfaction from this carefully selected lifetime. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

Return of the $77 Past Life Quickie

With the veils thinning, so many more people have begun to experience what I call “past life bleed-through.” Dreams, hunches, visions, flashes … however the suspected past life awareness arrives, it can feel unsettling, exciting and/or cause obsessive questions. This half-hour reading allows people to ask persistent questions, or to have a check-in regarding the most pressing karmic issues presenting themselves right now. Yes, this can include past life relationships with animal friends.

I don’t normally offer Past Life Readings in a 20-minute format, but I wanted to make this available to the larger numbers of people wondering about previous lifetimes and relationships. If you’d like to double this special for 40 minutes, just let me know in your scheduling request. Offer valid if prepaid on or before July 31, 2019. Please contact me to sign up.

Ann Kreilkamp~Do You Have Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and/or Capricorn?

I’m reposting this as Mars moves almost out of orb from this potent two week period. Did those of you with planets in the 18-23 degree range of Aries, Libra, Capricorn or Cancer notice any major breakthroughs or blow ups? I also noticed less intense but still profound realizations and decisions in clients with that same degree range of Taurus and Virgo.

I’ve got natal Chiron (wounded healer/early childhood wound) and natal Uranus (liberator/rebel/revolutionary/innovator) at 19 degrees Aries and Libra, respectively, so I had an exact square from Saturn, with Mars opposing that. For me, this past couple weeks brought monumental insights and structural shifts after Pluto’s played destroyer like a violinist/wrecking ball over that sensitive spot for over three years. It felt like Mars provided the energy for Saturn to begin the rebuilding phase of this internal renovation project.

Please feel free to share your own insights or experiences in the comments as you feel led. Even if you don’t leave a public comment, I invite you to self reflect and/or journal about any significant realizations, endings or beginnings. This was a big one for large swaths of the collective! No doubt, we’ll continue to unpack these results as we near the exact Saturn/Pluto conjunction. You don’t need to understand astrology in order to FEEL its impact.

Be kind to yourself. Monumental shifts are in the works — inside and out. Much love!

Here’s an important astro- weather report from friend and astrology mentor Ann Kreilkamp. I’ve been noticing this trend in people’s lives, as well. The effects depend on how consciously each person chooses to work with the energies, but there’s no ignoring these transits if they aspect natal placements. Major changes are afoot in my life and in others affected by this ongoing inner and outer space dance.

I post astrology information not to make people feel powerless against Fate, but as a heads up for making the most of the current and upcoming energies. A weather report doesn’t guarantee torrential downpour and floods, but with 80% forecast rain you might enjoy life more with an umbrella — or choose activities benefited by rain, rather than sunbathing on the beach. As always, your mileage will vary depending on who and how you are. In any case, here’s Ann with some powerful…

Garden Update ~ Pollinator Paradise

So far so good on the groundhog front! Since I removed all kale, lettuce and red clover, they’ve not been back. Or, if they have, they still don’t like chard, herbs and all my super fragrant flowers. Our yard is pollinator central for the neighborhood, and I love it! So many bees of all sorts, wasps, butterflies, and moths. The birds are more abundant, too. Just thought I’d share some beauty:

Comments and Sharing

I want to acknowledge here that I am aware of WordPress occasionally censoring comments and the ability to like or share my posts. I’ve heard from four people telling me that they tried to leave a comment multiple times and could not. These are long time blog readers/commenters who’ve become friends, which is why I got an email sharing their frustration about trying to leave a nice comment. I’ve also heard from numerous people who cannot share my posts on Facebook or cannot “Like” my posts anymore.

I can only imagine how many other people this has impacted, and I offer sincere apologies. While I do have a comment approval process to filter out spam and make sure no one leaves comments attacking another person leaving a comment, I approve 99% of submitted comments. I’m fortunate to have lovely, intelligent, creative, spiritually aware, caring and funny blog readers. I value my readers very much, whether or not you comment, “Like” or share my posts. Please know that if you’ve experienced seemingly random censorship here, it’s not coming from me.

WordPress has overtly censored me in the past, refusing to allow me to publish posts with certain key words in the title or body of the text. I know that censorship has become a big deal across most social media platforms. Those of you who’ve followed me for many years know that I used to post much more activist content here and felt led to back off that several years ago. I saw this current trend before it became a trend, and I felt that my own best offerings come from bringing more beauty, healing and empowerment into the world. Other people have different callings, and I respect and admire people who walk that path. It’s just not mine right now, so I don’t know why WordPress “glitches” would do this.

In any case, they are, though. I’ve had that confirmed twice this week, after months of suspecting it. Now that I’ve had the situation more clearly confirmed, I’ll see what I can do behind the scenes to address the issues. In the meantime, thank you for being here. Thank you for continuing to read and trying to comment on, like or share posts. I appreciate it, even if WP keeps me from seeing your engagement.

Sending love, blessings and healing to everyone.

Ann Kreilkamp~Do You Have Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and/or Capricorn?

Major changes are afoot in my life and in others affected by this ongoing inner and outer space dance.

Ann Kreilkamp~ Do You Have Planets in Aries, Cancer, Libra and/or Capricorn?

And are your cardinal planets located in or around the 18°-23° area of any of these four signs? If so, you’ve got furious, impulsive, action-oriented, no holds barred MARS, today [June 12th] at 17° of emotional Cancer, and moving about one degree every two days, either conjunct, square or opposed to that degree area of the zodiac NOW.

Why does this matter? Because we are in the midst of a long-running, and still forming Saturn/Pluto conjunction in that degree area of Capricorn. This zeitgeistian phenomenon, which joins Saturn, the planet of stern discipline and decision to Pluto, the planet of primal death and rebirth, occurs approximately every 35 or 36 years. It began to be felt this year in April and will go through about November of 2020, with the climax January 10th, 2020 when the two planets come to exact conjunction at 22° Capricorn. Since this conjunction involves the two most karmic planets, both inexorable, depth-charging Pluto and uncompromising, decisive Saturn, it’s always momentous for whomever, and whatever groups and institutions want to continue doing what they’re doing and find themselves thwarted, throttled, forced to CHANGE — especially when triggered by Mars!

Here’s a portion of the chart for RIGHT NOW, showing Mars (with Mercury and the north node) opposed to Saturn/Pluto (with the south node).

 

For example, my housemate Dan, tells me of a few friends of his who have recently started to experience panic attacks, on a daily basis. Furthermore, most of his friends, he says, are drinking way more beer than usual (self-medication). Continue reading
