Comprehending our Universe beyond our Earthly Duality through the Path of the Open Heart with Unconditional Love.
“Those who follow the clockwise path are governed by the changes of Yin and Yang. Those that take the reverse path, however, will be able to walk in the void.”

As we embrace our Kronos time line of June through July, our Sun moves from the constellation of Cancer, ruled by the watery Moon (June 21 – July 23) entering into it’s rulership of Warm Hearted Leo, (July 23 – August 23).
With the Summer Solstice on June 21 heralding us into the Summer Season, the element of Fire, we end the month of June with our fiery planet Mars going retrograde on June 26 lasting through August 27, 2018. When a planet goes retrograde, we are asked to review the qualities and archetypes of that particular planet in relationship to other planetary alignments that are affected by that planet.
The month of July offers up two eclipses, with a partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer on July 12th opposing Pluto, (the planet of transformation and evolution) asking us, “how do we need to nurture our hearts and our hearts path? Allowing us to evolve to our soul’s purpose at this moment in time. And with the end of July’s New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse opposing Mars Retrograde, we can expect this particular Lunar Eclipse to activate our planet’s emotions around Social Justice issues allowing us to choose either conflict and aggression, or righteous anger and love channeled into activism, with the compassion of the Buddha. As I write this article, Americans across the US are choosing to march for “Families Belong Together” in over 500 cities and in front of the White House.
Planetary alignments help humanity evolve. July proves to be a potent month filled with loads of action with the fiery trio of the Sun, Jupiter and Mars. Perhaps they are assisting us in igniting our internal fires, our divine spark, our Numinous, asking us to heed rightful action during this time of unprecedented change.
In 5 Element Theory, when the element of Fire is in balance, we are happy, joyful and engaged in enthusiastic, loving kind-hearted actions and social connections. When Fire is diminished, there is lack of enthusiasm, depression. When in excess, there is hyper-excitability, restlessness, and aggressivity. With the eruption of over 36 volcanoes on earth at this moment in time, and Hawaii’s momentous Kilauea eruption, Pele, the Goddess of Fire, and the element of Fire, is present in our consciousness. This active volcanic eruption phase is a recurring cycle on our beloved Mother Earth. Perhaps she is allowing us to witness the element of Fire on Earth and within ourselves, in excess, to examine our actions, asking each one of us to seek balance and refuge within the being-ness of our hearts?
Highlights for July’s Astrology commence on July 5 with the Sun Trine Jupiter, to 5 days later on July 10, Jupiter stationing direct, and two days later on the 12th, a Full Moon Partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer opposing Pluto, to a rare planetary phenomena where the planets align to one side of the sun on July 19, to Mercury retrograde on July 26, with the grand planetary finale on July 27, with the Sun Opposing retrograde Mars, and Mars opposing the New Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.
The rare planetary alignment that we will witness on earth on July 19, has not happened in over 20 years. The alignment is when all the planets are located on the right side of the sun, within 180 degrees on one side. Historically, this has only happened 6 times in the last 120 years. This unique planetary arrangement will occur over weeks through September 1, with Mercury taking us out of the alignment, followed by Venus and the Earth. Going back 120 years, this similar alignment occurred in 1998, 1982, 1953, 1944, 1942 and 1917. A common denominator during each of these planetary arrangements, with the exception of 1998, the Earth experienced an increase in volcanic eruptions. Globally, 36 volcanic eruptions are currently occurring with the possibility of moving into more volcanic activity from now till September. You can monitor this alignment with the App: Cosmographia.
Because we have two eclipses the month of July, which the ancients claim are harbingers of change, and we have such an unusual rare planetary alignment that may possibly increase the instability of our Earth, I’d like to suggest that the treatment strategies for this month focus on treating the heart, balancing the element of Fire, allowing us to be in the unknown and vibrating in sympathetic resonance of the loving heart. This may be easier said than done for those who may not have a reference point for this. Still, the suggestions below will aid in balance, relaxation, expansion and DNA reformatting.
Strategy suggestions revolve around grounding, resetting our Axis Mundi to Sedna, shifting our nervous system from sympathetic (stress response), to para-sympathetic (relaxation response), with treating the Huato Jaiji’s and the Bailiou, nourishing and balancing the yin and yang of the heart through the Mountain of Balance Points with Sedna, the Moon and the Sun, as well as nourishing the heart chakra, through the Yin Wei Mai, and allowing us to walk the world with an open heart and expanded sacred geometry shield of protection with the Cosmic Capstone.

Remembering we are the people of the Shao Yang, has never been so present with us as now. With Jump Time upon us, where, what and how shall we jump? How shall we travel in the void? What rightful action is necessary for our humanity to choose in this moment? Will we choose a timeline of love, unity in community, humanitarianism, peace, harmony, love, joy & understanding for humankind? Or will we stand by witnessing the dramas unfold, paralyzed like a deer in headlights, or worse yet, participating in them? The Hopi believe that Earth prayers and ceremony will help us with a smooth and less intense transition during The Great Purification.
This hour is NOW, and more than ever are we being asked to hold our center, stay grounded, be in and honor nature, meditate, chant, sing, pray, hold ceremony for the Earth, with our compass pointing to Spirit, staying in connection with the universal flow of love through the Planetary tones of Acutonics, and claiming our responsibility for the Earth with leadership from our open loving hearts.
Out beyond ideas, there is a field of love & harmony……
Out beyond ideas, WE SHALL MEET US THERE
