Current Configurations

Current Configurations

Riding the energy of the Leo New Moon from the end of last month (see chart New Moon Chart), we are relatively ungrounded at the beginning of the month, with only Mars in Virgo holding the Earth energy. We are precise but not fully connected with ourselves in some ways at this time, relying on the shaky power of logical thinking to hold ourselves together.

The First Quarter Moon of Wednesday, August 2nd (First Quarter Moon Chart), is a powerful one, with a Grand Trine in Water, including Uranus, and with only Mars in Earth, and the Moon in conjunction with expansive Jupiter in Scorpio. Jupiter trines Uranus all month long, amping up his sparky energy, and squaring Saturn and Neptune. We are thrust into a swirl of radical energy promoting either confusion or at least the possibility of change in our lives.

The Full Moon of Wednesday, August 9th (Full Moon Chart), is powerful as well, with the Sun and Moon in Leo and Aquarius aligning themselves with the forming SaturnNeptune opposition, by now only a few degrees apart across the sky. Saturn and Neptune represent quite opposite principles, of the status quo and the limitations of the here and now versus the more distant drumbeat and numinous super-reality of other dimensions intruding upon our physical ones, and calling us forth to compassion and feelings of oneness with all creatures on the planet. At the same time, Mars is also opposite Uranus, representing a call to action and the likelihood of surprising and even startling events to take place.

The Last Quarter Moon of Tuesday, August 15th (Last Quarter Moon Chart), features an isolated Moon opposed to the remainder of the planets and carrying most of the Earth energy in its watery grasp. Mars is still opposite Uranus. The Sun and Moon now aspect transformative Pluto. The energy shift and crisis of action represented by the building square between Sun and Moon both frustrate and strengthen our cause. We are in a place of attempting to reconcile the spiritual impulse toward the divine within us and out world limitation. Progress can be made, although not without effort on our part.

The Virgo New Moon of Wednesday, August 23rd (New Moon Chart), represents a fresh start in the very first degree of the sign. The Virgo energy is not very grounded, but more so than the Fire element that preceded it. We are being asked to find a place within the storm of circumstance that we are comfortable with as our platform on which to stand, from which we can attempt to move the mountains of our destiny a little closer to their culmination.
