ASTROLOGY: July 2024


Esoteric astrology examines everything from the perspective of the Soul, the highest purpose as we understand it. For this reason, we esoteric astrologers don’t typically view transits—the daily movement of planets—with as much interest or horror as traditional astrologers do. Since we deal with karma and reincarnation and recognize that we’ve been working on specific lesson plans as spelled out in our birth charts for many lifetimes, the brief, daily passage of the planets is but a drop in the bucket of time. The only transits we pay much attention to are what we call the generational planets, those so far out that they move slowly and stay in a single sign for years on end. Mostly, we prefer to work with the progressed chart to either look ahead, or to gain better understanding of past occurrences in this lifetime. By slowing down the movement of planets into dynamic patterns instead of daily, repetitive movements, we can both understand more of what we were meant to learn in past events as well as the type of energy and challenges we are likely to work with in our future. The Soul’s Purpose, another term for this particular astrology, can be more easily pursued with this dynamic information.

All that said however, this month we have a couple of interesting transits upon which to ponder. Mid-month, Mars and Uranus will be conjunct (on top of each other) in the sign of Taurus. Wherever Taurus is in your chart is where in your life it might affect you. This particular combination can indicate an accident waiting to happen, so it wouldn’t hurt to be cautious driving around, and to mind your throat, or your speech, which Taurus rules. Then one week later, Pluto and Earth come together in the sign of Aquarius, the sign of waves, such as seismic waves or radioactive waves. Pluto rules volcanic eruptions, so tremors of the Earth and more are certainly possible. AND the waxing and finally full moon, moving into a conjunction with these two planets, could be a trigger. At one point, four of these five planets are all in the exact same degree and blessing one another. What does it mean when an accident and seismic shift work together? On a Soul level? An unanticipated seismic shift in consciousness for all of humanity (Aquarius)? Fingers crossed that this is the manifestation of these two transit conjunctions and trine.
