EYE IN THE SKY– JULY 29-AUGUST 9TH
This week in particular may be heralded as truly the doggiest week of the dog days of summer. Mars had been giving us a lift through Sunday but now moves into the most difficult part of its 2 year journey as it moves toward 23-29.59 degrees Cancer and it is at the peak of debilitation into August 5th where energy will be low and fuses high. The energy to get anything done requires 3 x as much will power and drive and it is just easy to give up and say why bother. The week of August 6-10th is also difficult with Mars in the gandanta area at the end of Cancer where deep emotional turmoil can come up particularly for Aries and Scorpio rising. Luckily we will get a bit of a lift from Jupiter to save the day with its Trine to the Sun into August 7th. Slow down, get more rest and know that things will take longer and find the extra drive and will power to make them happen when you need to. Mars will get a shot in the arm going into Leo into August 8th.
Mercury prepared to go direct on July 31st at 11:58 pm EDT and it is particularly powerful when it is stationary within a few days on either side of the switch. It is at the end of Gemini starting on Tuesday, July 30th and then goes back into Cancer on August 3rd. Both areas of the sky at the end of Gemini and the beginning of Cancer are called Pushkara navamsha where they get extra energy and creativity and blessings. Still it is always a mixed bag as planets at the end of a sign or the beginning of a sign are called sandhi or void of course in Western terms which means they lack energy and are in limbo. That may create some communication problems but ultimately some support. Gemini and Virgo rising may feel the impact of this transit most but I suspect that it will ultimately be powerful and supportive.
New Moon in Cancer at 11:12 pm EDT on Monday is a mixed blessing. Good to have the moon centered and home in its own sign but always low energy at the new moon and more rest is needed. Venus supporting the moon will also give more blessings this day. Still part of a low energy week out there.
Kala Sarpa /Kala Amrita Yoga in transit begins August 1st and goes through August 12th as all the planets are hemmed in between Rahu and Ketu. We will write a long article about this but it may not impact you unless you have that yoga in your natal chart. It tends to imbalance the lunar and solar energies which means intense Sun/male energy pushing too hard or intense lunar/female energy laying back and doing nothing. It will be broken when the moon moves past Ketu on August 12th but will will reappear again August 28th for 2 weeks. It tends to have a bigger influence on Mundane astrology.
Jupiter moving toward a trine from Venus into August 8th and Sun being trined by Jupiter on August 7th will bring some supportive energy and expansion August 5-9th. Venus combustion into August 14th will start to be felt and we will write more about it later int he week. A combust planet is totally hidden by the Sun and is not visible in the sky and Venus combustion can create fatigue and low energy for those ruled by Libra and Taurus this month so get more rest.
