Morning Star: Daily Astrology for July 8, 2014

This morning we wake up to the Scorpio Moon perfecting in trine to Jupiter in Cancer (6:33 PM). Right now, Moon, Saturn, Chiron and Sun/Jupiter are creating a water trine.

Uranus and Venus are still within orb of sextile and both are inonjunct Saturn creating a Yod which has Moon just leaving the Apex but Saturn is still holding ground.

Plus, as the Sun is still within orb of opposing Pluto and with the water trine in play, there is a kite with Pluto at the Apex.

The Yod speaks to how we manage our debt. This is either monetary debt or energetic owed from us or to us. The Kite supports us as we each work through the current issues in our lives. Change, re-direction or re-definition, perspective, wisdom, healing and strength are highlights of this Kite.

Overlaying these aspect patterns is the perfection of the square between Sun in Cancer and Uranus in Aries (12:33 PM). As the Sun moves through this square, he also touches upon degrees that re-link Mars opposite Uranus and square Pluto. The Sun officially squares Mars in Libra on July 19 ending the re-link.

Stephen King wears his Sun square Uranus rather well
Sun square Uranus can produce a flair for rebellion or breaking the rules. It brings an Aquarian flavor to our Cancer Sun that may prompt us to favor the unusual or unique more than what is typical. At it's best expression, the aspect creates a personal connection to humanitarian and social causes. In a natal chart, it can produce people who are brilliantly eccentric like this guy...

After the Moon meets with Jupiter tonight, she will reach Void status until entering Sagittarius at 9:25 PM which occurs just after the Sun grabs Saturn via trine (8:29 PM). The trine is helpful because it can keep us anchored and stable through any tension that may be kicked back up with Sun/Uranus.

Saturn and Uranus will both change direction in the coming weeks. Today, the Sun checks in with each of them near their station point to congeal their lessons thus far. Saturn turns direct on July 20. Uranus turns retrograde on July 21.

Grab on to the stability and drive for independence and personal freedom that is permeating the sky today. There is opportunity to make progress across several areas and to find support for what it is that may be ailing you.

On Wednesday, Dixie Vogel and I will be meeting to discuss the element of Water. We are revisiting our previous video on the Elements and expanding the information that we provided in each. The show will air live on Google+ Hangouts at 5 PM Cent/6 PM EDT. We will talk about how to work successfully with the element of Water in everyday life. Hopefully we'll see you there!
