Weekly Cosmic Tides – Astrology for the 9th – 15th July 2012

Astrology for the 9th - 15th July 2012Monday 9th July
Asteroid Vesta enters Gemini – Devote yourself to building up a body of knowledge whether for pleasure or for career. Connect with those who inspire you. You have learned much already; share what you know with others. Remember your favourite teacher at school and send up a prayer of thanks for that blessing.

“A good teacher is like a candle – it consumes itself to light the way for others.”
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

To my school teachers…
Mr. P – Thank you for nurturing my love of music

Mr. W – Thank you for nurturing my love of animals and nature
Mr. L – Thank you for nurturing my love of English literature and writing.

30 odd years on and I still remember you all 🙂

Tuesday 10th July
Jupiter conjunct Ceres – The Earth is abundant! Give thanks for all that you have in your life. Make a donation to a food bank. Explore spirituality with your children. Take time to notice the beauty of flowers, the green of trees. Bless your food and those who took part in its journey to you. Walk barefoot on soft grass. Remember you are a child of Mother Earth.

“You pray in your distress and in your need; would that you might also pray in the fullness of your joy and in your days of abundance.”
Khalil Gibran

Wednesday 11th July
Last quarter Moon on the Sabian Symbol “A Young Girl Feeding Birds In Winter”. This symbol follows on beautifully from yesterday’s Jupiter conjunction to Ceres. Generosity through compassion brings spiritual gifts. You may be called upon to help another, give willingly. Share what you have with another. Bake a cake for a neighbour or your colleagues. Birds are a symbol connected to divine messengers. The more your feed your soul, the higher you fly.

Moon in Taurus

“There is deep wisdom within our very flesh, if we can only come to our senses and feel it.” Elizabeth A. Behnke

Friday 13th July
Uranus retrograde – Between now and the 13th December 2012, Uranus turns his awakening energy to within. Things may seem to come to an abrupt halt. Recent changes may seem to be less inspiring that you thought before. There can be a tendency towards dogmatic and rebellious behaviour – an urge to shock because change isn’t happening fast enough. Let Uranus take you on an inner journey. There are aspects of yourself that need an overhaul. Personal reinvention is the key. It’s time to let go of some ideas so that you can develop new ones.

Saturday 14th July
Mercury sextile Venus

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.”
G.K. Chesterton

Sunday 15th July
Mercury retrograde, Sun square Saturn. If Uranus retrograde on Friday didn’t stop you in your tracks, be prepared to come skidding to a halt today. With Mercury in Leo, loss of confidence, second guessing yourself and being plagued by doubt may all come into play. Sometimes you can’t see why the universe seems to want you to stop. Obstacles might be there to stop you going in the wrong direction – or perhaps they are there to show you that you can overcome anything. Be realistic but don’t under-estimate what you a truly capable of.
