Welcome to the second half of 2022. From a really slow 2020, time seems to have steadily readjusted back to its normal pace, and now it seems like we are back into confounded head scratching again. Bakit parang ang bilis bigla? Kaka new year lang a?
July, July, July… In most ways, this month can be considered as the calm before the storm. August carries so much tension and possible turmoil, that this month may seem peaceful by comparison. There are a few rough plutonic spots of intensity, starting with MARS squaring PLUTO in their respective home courts of Aries and Capricorn as the month opens. Around mid-month, a potent, intense FULL MOON conjuncts PLUTO, almost as a final salute, an homage to this intense, transformative era of Pluto in Capricorn, which started in 2008, and fully ends in 2024 (after testing the waters first quarter of 2023). And finally, with the SUN opposing PLUTO on the 3rd week, bringing energy that demands us to find equilibrium in two polarizing areas in our lives. Things may seem tricky and brooding, but its definitely relatively tame, compared to what we’ve experienced and what is to come.
Towards the end of the month, Jupiter turns and goes through his annual backwards dance, and for four months, luck may seem a little bit sparse. We may feel like we must work a little bit harder to be able to make things happen, as we adjust to life post pandemic. Expansive energy we’ve enjoyed until now slows down, and we are compelled to look inwards, as we are faced with the possible consequences of our recent choices. Prudence must be practiced now, as how you handle this month strongly sets the stage for the explosive transits waiting to welcome us behind August’s door.
For really specific details on how this month’s Cosmic Weather may affect you, you will need your exact birth time, birth place, and a competent astrologer who can compute and interpret your charts. However, even without these, knowing the general energies at play can greatly assist in planning ahead. You know the drill!
