This week’s Horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Scorpio Moon. On July 31, at approximately 7:10 a.m. (EST) the Moon will turn Void-of-Course, and remain in that condition until 8:10 a.m. (EST) on Tuesday morning, Aug. 1. That means we had one whole day to roll down our stockings, light up a smoke, and forget about the usual grind.
The minute the moon enters Sagittarius on Aug. 1, things will shift and we will be off and running because this week is the beginning of the Sundance, the Althing, and the annual gathering of the clans. It is the most potent and jubilant time of the year. Make no mistake, what the Northern tribes refer to as Lughnassah, is filled with potency, light, and creativity. Within those energies, we can begin to identify that which is pure, authentically beautiful, and true.
During my stay in “broken hip rehab,” a young man was part of the team of people who kept watch over me day and night. The first day I was there he walked into the room and I thought I was looking at the Archangel Michael. That morning, I was crying, and a little afraid. He told me not to worry. He said ,“I’ve lived through five motorcycle accidents. Every bone in my body is filled with titanium; trust me, you’ll be able to walk again.”Something about the way he said it, made me believe.
Every day after that he came to see me whenever he could, sometimes just to stop in and give me a hug. I told him, “I don’t know what it is about you, but you carry so much light, I feel totally blessed in your presence.” Then I asked him to tell me when he was born – Aug. 5 was his response. All of a sudden, I knew why he lit up the room every time he entered. He was born on Lughnassah – a triple Leo who felt like an Archangel because he was channeling so much pure, white light. I will never forget him.
I don’t know where your joy lies, but whatever it takes to roll it out, give yourself a chance to open your heart to the pulse that lives inside this cross-quarter. You don’t have to be born at this time to access these energies. If you can touch them even for a moment, and can bring them home to the place inside yourself that is made of love, and authentically beautiful and true, be sure to let it radiate out and share all of it with everyone you meet, and with all of life everywhere – like the young man who filled me with light and befriended me at a time when my body was in pain, and my heart was full of fear.
Let me leave you with that thought, and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
