The Aquarium Age: July 29 - Aug. 4

Thursday, 30 July 2015 18:04 Published in Aquarium Age

The erratic pace of recent weeks continues, but as the days and nights of this week unfold, certain tensions settle down. Don't misunderstand; we're still in the midst of several significant transitions, and nervous systems reflect the flux. But moods are moving away from confrontation as a way of spending excess energy. The impetus for personal freedom also persists, but this week it actually becomes more refined, if only because the motivation behind that drive toward independence is more grounded than it has been in a long while.

You'll need a steady inner compass to keep you on track this week—the astral winds are strong, so strong that nervous systems are in need of extra care. Even if you like being buffeted by powerful currents or you enjoy the surprise of unforeseen detours, you'll need some sort of homing device keep you on course through the week's twists and turns. Also, moods are more than a little testy, especially today and tomorrow—actually, most of next week—as many struggle to contain anxiety about what's coming next.

It's another week of intense interactions, as diverse perspectives struggle to hold onto unique and often polarized positions. From the political to the personal to the profound, and in some cases to the stupid, conversations focus on safety and security issues, especially what can be done to create greater stability. Unfortunately the search for solid ground—ideally higher ground—collides with the very real limitations of 3-D reality, causing some to despair whether the ground will ever feel steady again. Conditions in general are in a peculiar state of disintegration. But—and this is a really important exception—the current state of deterioration is a necessary preliminary part of a vital integration process.

The need to feel absolutely free collides with an equally resolute need to be in control, and the clash of these diverse tendencies generates a volatile atmosphere. Don't be surprised if the determination to declare independence fuels more than a few breakouts or breakthroughs. And while this pursuit of happiness is certain to feel satisfying, it's likely to encounter resistance—a lot of resistance—as those left behind struggle to maintain order. From both a personal and a collective perspective, most of us are bound to experience even more upheaval (as if that's possible), which makes a commitment to peaceful living even more important, even in the midst of turmoil.

It's another week of astro-complexity, as the planets align in complementary as well as confrontational patterns. It's likely that regular routines will be anything but...making it wise to expect more than a few unexpected events to disrupt even the best-made plans. While some of these surprising shifts of fortune might be classified as negative, for the most part this week's unforeseen plot tweaks are beneficial. That being said, there are also tough configurations that suggest an increase in power struggles and those conflicts run the gamut from petty to profound. Take your stand when a stand is necessary—and in certain instances it is—but also try to avoid becoming embroiled in a meaningless standoff that serves no greater purpose than blowing off steam.

I'm not sure what to say—the tragedy in Charleston has been discussed extensively and eloquently by many others. It's hard to find words to express the great suffering of that event and all the other tragedies we have endured and are likely to continue to endure until we find a way to heal the hate infecting the hearts of so many.

Welcome back, dear readers of the Aquarium Age. Only one more day until Mercury Retrograde ends—it's over tomorrow, June 11, at 6:33 p.m. EDT—and what a long, winding, mind-bending retrograde it's been. Some days sped by like the winged feet of Hermes himself, with quick plot twists and instant agenda shifts, all packed with the power to turn even well-made plans topsy-turvy.

The Aquarium Age: May 20 - June 10

I am taking off for all—well, almost all—Mercury Retrograde. For those new to Mercury Retrograde, here are the rules: Expect communication and travel snafus of every variety. If you can, put off lauching anything new until after June 11--and at best, June 15. Instead, use this time to review, reflect, and reconsider what is already in motion. See you back here on June 10, 2015. By the way, I am still reading charts; I'm just not writing the column during the retrograde.

You might want to consider donning your not-so-gay Teflon apparel this week. It's pretty much a you-know-what storm of misunderstandings—and you'll want to make sure you're wearing the kind of armor that won't allow negativity to stick. Most of the drama comes from words spoken or written in haste, words that give voice to opinions that might be better left unspoken until the astral air clears, if only because for the next several days, words have the power to undermine, unsettle, and undo.
