Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for July 2014

Now that you’ve taken a tour of your supposed psychological tendencies, you can claim who you are in the most positive sense. Growth and healing are not just a quest for fixing what is wrong with you, nor are they about making yourself acceptable to others on their terms. They are about identifying the best of who you are and putting that very quality forward. You could say that you need to believe in yourself first in order to do this.

The heat is on as we reach the Cancer solstice, the start of summer in the northern hemisphere. In this edition, Planet Waves looks back at the wild ride that has been the first half of 2014, including the domino effect of those inner planet retrogrades. Eric also looks ahead to the month of July when mighty Jupiter moves into Leo, bringing confidence and self-esteem into the forefront.

You have been under a lot of stress the past six months. It’s almost like you’ve done everything right and yet you cannot get the results that you want. It’s good you subscribe to the motto “when you’re going through hell, keep on going” — even if it wasn’t all that bad. Yet so many factors change this month that you have reason to remain not just optimistic but also motivated.

A New Season, Inner Space and the Hobbyist Lobbyists

Posted by Planet Waves

Mercury stations direct three times a year, so of its own it’s not big astrology — however, this station direct concludes a sequence of four inner planet retrogrades that have, to put it mildly, been impressive. As in challenging and unstable, though calling attention to various problems and situations that have needed to be resolved or at least aired out for a while. I plan to give these events a careful review.

Casey Kasem’s 12th House, Cancer Solstice, Jupiter Conjunct Varuna and Watch Out for the Supreme Court’s “Hobby Lobby” Decision

Casey Kasem, the voice of “American Top 40″ (and one of the most recognizable voices in American radio) died Sunday, and I’ve prepared a reading of his chart in tonight’s Planet Waves FM. His chart is focused on what most people find to be the most challenging house to read, or to live with — the 12th, which seems to exist behind a veil but also sometimes magnifies things to larger-than-life proportions (Madonna is another example).

Weekly Horoscope for Thursday, June 12, 2014

Few people on Earth don’t struggle with self-esteem. This is a complex issue, in part because so many are challenged, and we don’t have many healthy models of what it means to respect oneself. Self-esteem is conflated with narcissism; which is only true to the extent that one is attempting to compensate for the other. On the other side of that coin are people who just don’t feel adequate and there’s no way even to fake it.

Is our society out of control? In this edition, Eric explores the issue of violence and aggresssion that continues to explode throughout our world. He highlights the significance of the centaur planets during this Sagittarius Full Moon, a symbolic call to self-awareness in order to release ourselves from patterns of karma.

Seeking and Finding with Astrology

Seek and you shall find are among my guiding words for astrology. This quote comes from Matthew 7:7. Here it is, in the familiar language of the King James version: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.”

Weekly Horoscope for Friday, June 6, 2014

There is a power source in your ability to embrace the fertile void. That could start with embracing uncertainty, of which there is plenty in the world, and plenty in your chart. Though this may take a little courage, it almost always comes as a relief to let go of false certainty, whatever may come next. What is likely to follow is contact with an intuitive level of knowledge, not quite instinctual but definitely centered on your body and on your feelings, that is easier to follow than the chaos of trying to sort things out again and again.

Mercury, Weaving the Story of Nessus

Posted by Eric Francis

Mercury in Cancer forms a trine to Nessus in Pisces, making three exact aspects from late May through mid-July in emotional and intuitive water signs. Eric discusses the myth of Nessus, and looks at this centaur planet’s significance to cycles of abuse, victimization, and revenge. We often perpetuate the pain we’ve suffered, continuing the karmic chain of hurt. He points to the healing quality of this astrology as the key to making space for vulnerability.
