Lunar Forecasts for July-August 2009

SOLAR ECLIPSE and
NEW MOON in CANCER

This Forecast in effect
July 21/22 to August 5/6, 2009

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

The Solar Eclipse pulls you into a time of powerful transition! Think about the long-term challenges you have been dealing with it could have begun 6 months ago or 5 years ago or even 19 years ago. Think about the growth and accomplishments you have been through. This might be about your experience in your family, or perhaps starting your own family. It could involve a process whereby you have "come of age" or reached a certain level of maturity. Perhaps you have struggled to cultivate a sense of safety, boundaries or comfort in your life. Or maybe you have developed the ability to nurture others, care for their needs and help them feel secure.

You are at a point now where something about this process is drawing to a close. You are on the verge of a new dawn in your life which will unfold over the next few years. A new phase is about to begin that will challenge you to shine and bring yourself out in new ways. You are probably aware of this approaching dawn and may be preparing for it now. However, this is a time to close the door on the old as you step forward into the new. This closure asks you to take stock of how you have evolved through the challenges, events, changes and decisions on your journey. How have you grown and matured?

Just as important, in what ways have you outgrown the goals, needs and support systems that have guided you, hounded you, protected you and nurtured you? How are you now being held back by the very things that once nourished you and allowed you to thrive through difficult times? This is not a failing it means you're ready to graduate to the next level of your journey. This is a time to break out of the egg in which you have grown. Doing so might bring back some of the old insecurity, nervousness or struggle that led you into the phase you are now leaving, but this doesn't necessarily mean you're backsliding. You have developed new skills, awareness and strength of spirit to deal with those feelings, and if that isn't enough then slow down you might be trying to change too much too fast. A personal astrology reading can give you the support you need to make the transition from the old to the new.

LUNAR ECLIPSE and
FULL MOON in AQUARIUS

This Forecast in effect
August 5-20, 2009

The Lunar Forecasts give Daily Horoscopes a greater context.

In the last update, you were encouraged to take stock of where you've been and prepare to make the transition to a new beginning. The next two weeks will see the beginnings of a revisioning process. You are challenged to speculate about where you could be in your life in a few years. This is bound to bring out a lot of idealism, imagination, yearning and anticipation that might have been previously relegated to your unconscious in the absence of a way to make your dreams happen. That means your imagination might run a little wild at times as you start to break out of your shell of pragmatic necessity and realism.

This revisioning will probably work best if you can keep your hopes, expectations and assumptions balanced by a rational perspective. I don't mean that this process needs to be ordinary, boring or rigidly logical. On the contrary, it calls for you to engage your passionate and adventurous nature while still maintaining a clear rational plan about how to get from here to there. The challenge will be to avoid the extremes of becoming either erratic or stuck in formula; lost in cynicism or addicted to blind faith; overly distractable or entrenched in "tunnel vision."

This month is a time of integration. All the little tips, hunches, insights, skills, ideas and glimpses of your potential that you've been gathering all year can now start to be pulled together into a cohesive whole. That's why it's important to maintain a steady, grounded, clear view of what you're doing, why you want it and how you can accomplish it. This is the perfect time for a personal astrology reading since it can help you get that clarity and perspective to work most effectively with these upcoming energies.
