You’ve worked hard. But to date, your actions have not delivered the desired results. More likely than not, this is because of undesirable (i.e. outgrown) behaviours, which in turn, have been driven by undesirable (i.e. outgrown) stories about yourself to which, over time, you’ve become attached. It only makes sense that to get desired results, you’ll need to manifest different behaviour that is fuelled by new and better stories. This is precisely where astrological coaching comes in. For example, Mr W has struggled to forge a stable career. Every job that he’s ever enjoyed has ended in ‘tears’ – either…
The nodes are oft associated with karma and reincarnation – the South Node representing what you’ve accomplished in past lives (both good and bad) and the North Node representing what you are meant to accomplish during your present incarnation. But even if you don’t believe in karma or reincarnation, you can still benefit from working with your nodes. Consider that the South Node represents energy with which it’s easy for you to work while the North Node represents not just challenges but also opportunities to develop new skills, attitudes, and perspectives. In my chart, the (mean) nodal axis is Capricorn/Cancer suggesting…
It’s near impossible to react calmly and sanely under such conditions and the energy on a the Eight of Hearts reflects this.
In classical mythology, Mercury is the trickster god and hence like the Fool card in the tarot, has no fixed agenda. Indeed his is a spontaneous approach to life and although he rushes in where angels may fear to tread, he is usually successful.
Now the Moon is in Leo and this Phlegmatic/Choleric energy is characterised by the planetary cycles inherent between the sun and moon. This is because Cancer is ruled by the Moon and Leo, is ruled by the Sun. But their relationship is reversed (the Moon rules Cancer but is now in Leo and the Sun rules Leo but is in Cancer).
All this is making way for that new moon which symbolises a time to plant seeds for the future, a gateway to the energy the energy you need to pull into your life to make it all that you’d have it be
With the Sun in Cancer (cold/wet) and the Moon in Gemini (hot/wet) it’s going to be a Phlegmatic/Sanguine kind of day. As you may recall, humoural theory is based on the ancient and medieval physiology and medicine as expounded by Empedocles, Hippocrates, and Galen – it’s all to do with the four block or ‘roots’ of the material world that manifest in certain humours and their related temperaments: ELEMENT QUALITY HUMOUR TEMPERAMENT Fire Hot/dry Yellow Bile Choleric Earth Cold/dry Black Bile Melancholic Water Cold/wet Phlegm Phlegmatic Air Hot/wet Blood Sanguine Earlier (4th July), we had another Phlegmatic/Sanguine day when the…
But now the Phlegmatic energy is different because instead of Mars, we have Jupiter involved – and his traditional astrological job is to bring worldly wealth and priestly wisdom.
In terms of the Jungian Functions, Aquarius (air) represents the thinking function and so when Cancer (feeling function) overwhelms (as it is apt to do), you can drop back, re-group, and gather much needed perspective.
By nature, the Phlegmatic is shamefaced and sober and the Melancholic, suspicious and musing. Put the two together and there isn’t much you can do to balance out what is likely to feel like a cold shower.
