Swirling around in Cosmic Molasses?

Now that we’re on the other side of the 1st pinnacle (June 24th) of the clash of the Titans, Uranus (revolution) and Pluto (transformation), we have one remarkable example of how that energy is manifesting in our world.  

On July 3rd a culminating Full Moon triggered the public announcement that physicists had discovered the “key to the universe”!  Nicknamed the “God Particle,” it points the way to a new understanding of the nature of reality.  

Big stuff in the macrocosm, just as big in the microcosm.  What new discovery have you been making that is transforming your reality?

Expect the next quantum leap to become known in the weeks before and after September 19th, the date for the 2nd of the seven revolutionary pinnacles.  

This week we’re in-between the Full and the New Moon.  A time to re-coup and re-orient ourselves.  Sweep away the July 3rd Full Moon leftovers, the shredded papers of plans completed or let go.  Time to prepare and fertilize the soil for new seeds you’ll plant on July 18th.  

Uranus stations retrograde in Aries on Thursday, where for the next 5 months he’ll retrace the sizzling path he’s carved through the dark forests--all the way back to March 26th.  The outer changes must now be assimilated into your inner world.  Where have the first fissures appeared?  That is where the inner healing will now occur.

Ideas get a 25-day do-over beginning Saturday, July 14th, when Mental Mercury goes retro.  He’ll retrace his path back to June 26th, his first day in fiery Leo.  Notice your fire?

Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. But anger is like fire. It burns it all clean.  Maya Angelou

The Force of sticking-together-like-molasses is with you.
Here’s your personal horoscope for the week of July 8, 2012:

Aries ♈ (March 20-April 19)
Sunday holds a gentle invitation to get honest with yourself about your hopes and dreams, and see through the haze currently on your horizon.  Your week jump starts when the Moon fires-up her impulses in Aries, beginning 5:14 AM, PDT, Monday.  It begins a lucky streak for you.  A few rash challenges to your relationships spark an irritating debate about who should wash the dishes.  You’re looking around for your usual assertiveness, but its low.  You want adventure and excitement.  It’s as if the red lights don’t apply to you--until Thursday when the god of lightning, who’s been hanging out in Aries, does an about face.  Your inner sense of worth and self-esteem are deepening and under review in the next 5 months.  

Taurus (April 20-May 20)
Sunday starts your week with a dreamy dive into the visionary waters of compassionate and poetic Pisces.  This is inner work so the windows to the world are a bit fogged over.  Save the sharing of your ideas for tomorrow when communications clear.  Meanwhile, remind yourself that fear has no place in your reality.  The Taurus Moon on Thursday is especially lovely for you as it reveals some hidden treasure (beginning 8:34 AM, PDT).  When the god of lightning goes retro Thursday, he’ll retrace the changes in your hopes and dreams that you’ve made during the past 5 months.  Then the retrograde Mercury begins Saturday, and you’ll re-do and re-think issues related to your home and family.

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Your open-mindedness invites others to come share, but you have a keen eye to detect deception.  The beginning of the week may not be a time that you have the energy to assert yourself productively, but you have a lucky break around 5:00 PM, PDT, Monday. When Revolutionary Uranus turns his lightning bolts toward inner changes on Thursday, you’ll have a 5 month period when you’ll re-examine your place in groups and in your closest friendships.  Mercury in Leo is traveling through your house of communications, doubling the creative fire in your words.  He turns retrograde Saturday, July 14th at 7:09 PM, PST, and you’ll rework your best ideas over the next 25 days but they won’t be easily communicated until August 8th.  The Moon sails into Gemini at 5:27 AM, PDT, on Saturday and closes your week with some lofty ideals that want to be put into action. Pay attention to opportunity that presents itself around 8:00 PM Saturday evening--you’re lucky night!

Cancer (June 21-July 21)
You may not feel like you have the energy to take on an honest dialogue with anyone, even though it’s needed.  Your energy is turned inward at the beginning of this week, so use caution as the plans you make are likely to require a sacrifice, probably from you.  A head-on fender bender with the god of lightning to shakes up your bedtime hours and you may have to check your closet for monsters!  It may not feel like help, but the Aries Moon is loosening the grip of old fears.  This is a crisis of opportunity.  Friday the 13th is a very fortunate day for you.  The Cancer Sun and the Taurus Moon are happily at home with each other, and you get some well-deserved rest.  When Messenger Mercury goes retro on Saturday, he turns his back on outgoing messages, and delivers straight to your heart.  

Leo (July 22-August 22)
Your week begins with a foggy dose of confusion from a Visionary Neptune, and you find yourself swimming in deeply serious waters.  It’s hard to see what’s obscuring your actions with others.  You may find yourself on a seesaw when you try to get agreement with your partner.  Some heated bantering may be just the thing to clear the air.  You have trouble sitting still when a 4th of July aftershock ignites some unlit fireworks--right under your chair!  Messenger Mercury in Leo turns retrograde Saturday, so try to get your contracts signed and commitments sealed before then.  You’ll have 25 days of do-overs to remodel your  ideas so that they’re more in line with your distinctive style.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Warrior Mars has left your sign, so initially your attempts to assert yourself may prove ineffective and only generate confusion.  Don’t let this low ebb in energy discourage you.  It’s like trying to drive fast in a thick valley fog--best to wait for a clearing.  Letting go of an old idea gets easier when the Aries Moon lights a fire under your intentions early this week.  By Thursday you’re feeling energetic again and powerful enough to take on a deep issue.  What new discovery has been unearthed for you since March 26th?  You’ll feel happily at home with yourself by the end of the week, so take time to complete and clarify your communications before the Messenger planet goes retro on Saturday.  

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Early in this week the Aries Moon gives a causal but lucky wink at Generous Jupiter in Gemini, giving you a sense of ease and well being.  Even Friday the 13th looks lucky.  However Warrior Mars, now in Libra, is in an itchy opposition to Uranus in Aries.  Hard not to get caught in a touchy balancing act, feeling like you’re holding Nitroglycerin in each hand!  Lots of ups and downs. Still, keep your fair-mindedness, and your honesty will thwart any deception.  When Uranus stations retrograde in Aries on Thursday, you’re given a 5 month period to revisit your relationships and pick up any pieces you missed.  Old friends may reappear.  Say what you need to say before Saturday when Mental Mercury takes a contemplative retreat to the mountain tops.

Scorpio ♏  (October 23-November 21)
Sunday is tinged with a foggy dose of confusing dreams and visions, courtesy of Nebulous Neptune in the deeply unconscious waters of Pisces where he simply has no boundaries!  You may not feel like you have the energy to take on an honest dialogue with someone, even though it’s needed.  But it’s important to take this week to express yourself in important business and personal matters, especially contracts, before Mental Mercury goes retrograde Saturday, July 14th at 7:09 PM, PST, in your house of career.  The Cancer Sun and the Taurus Moon are happily at home with each other at the end of this week, offering you the opportunity for rest and relaxation.  

Sagittarius (November 22-December 20)
Honesty is your best talent, so the dreamy fog that Neptune throws over the truth won’t phase you!  But be cautious of deception around you during the first part of this week.  
Mars, now in Libra, is shaking your world with some sudden shifts in relationships.  Instead of a stand off, try to accept the differences.  Pull them in for a closer look.  
When Uranus makes his U Turn on Thursday, you will redesign your creativity to give your Self more freedom of expression.  Messenger Mercury in fiery Leo turns retrograde Saturday, until August 8th.  You’ll re-think your philosophy of life, but it won’t be easy to express it to others at this time.

Capricorn (December 21-January 19)
Sunday has a bit of foggy thinking, especially around your hopes and dreams for the future.  Your plans will become clear after a deep dive into Pluto’s underworld and a bit of rearranging your childhood conditioning. This can open a fissure where fears have been locked away, but it’s part of your healthy revolution--to recoil from what hurts you as if it’s a hot burner.  A beautiful harmony descends Thursday evening when your pal, the comfy Taurus Moon, offers you a shoulder to lean on and some well deserved rest.  It’s been a long trek through the dark forest (since Pluto entered Capricorn) but recently you’ve made miraculous discoveries--finding the key to happiness.

Aquarius (January 20-February 17)
It’s impossible to sit still!  So much mental stimulation around you that confusion may set in!  Shore up your boundaries against any dishonesty or deception, especially in the first part of this week.  You’re swimming in some foggy waters right now, and your energy is low (for you that is!).  Monday evening holds a lucky opportunity--take it.  When Mental Mercury makes his U turn this Saturday (July 14th at 7:09 PM, PST), it’s in your house of partnerships.  So the next 25 days you’ll review what’s been said and discover what you really think about it all.  

Pisces ♓  (February 18-March 19)
Visionary Neptune in your deeply compassionate waters has created a low lying fog over your hopes.  Don’t let this temporary confusion of boundaries discourage you from asserting your truth.  Issues of honesty and deception color the first half of this week.  Try to get clear about who owns what and who’s doing what to whom before Mental Mercury goes retro on Saturday, July 14th at 7:09 PM, PST.  You get do-overs in your work for the next 25 days.  Friday the 13th is a fortunate day for you with the Sun in nurturing Cancer snuggled up to a pleasure-loving Taurus Moon.  What new discovery have you made with the 1st pinnacle of revolution (June 24th)?  What really holds your world together?
