Both symbols suggest that a new feeling is arising in people, a feeling that wants to break down old collective belief systems that no longer serve life.   The gift is that these new beliefs--about equality, about humanity's connection to our environment, about justice, about fairness, about the really important things in life--are as beautiful and yet delicate as a butterfly.    

Other Energies at Play

Mercury and the asteroids Vesta and Ceres join the Leo Sun at the full Moon.   This adds a sharp, creative mind, a sense of self-empowerment and real nurturing to the Sun's power.   Vesta gives us the focus and passion to pursue your goals; Ceres wants us to look at how we use food and nurturing and fertility; Mercury shows how we use our minds to process and perceive life.   In Leo, they want us to show the world who we really are.

In the hours and days following this Blue Moon , Jupiter and Venus will align with the Pluto/Uranus square, bringing the revolution into our homes and relationships.

Venus enters the sign of Libra on August 16th, bringing harmony and balance to our relationships--hopefully because we've been doing our Saturn in Scorpio work of re-structuring our emotional body and owning our Shadow.  

A few hours after the full Moon, Jupiter in Cancer squares Uranus in Aries, calling us to stand up for our homes and families, our needs and our feelings.   Jupiter gives us the gifts of curiosity, expansiveness and faith; Uranus promotes freedom, originality and a cosmic mind.   A square signals a turning point, where we have to break free from the past.   We have to learn to think outside the box to discover solutions to our personal and cultural problems.   That means, using our Imaginations!  

Jupiter will be part of a series of five cardinal grand crosses (a planet in each cardinal sign) through next spring.   A grand cross involves two oppositions (180*) and four squares (90*).   In cardinal signs, these grand crosses will constellate major changes in all areas of life: self-identity (Uranus in Aries), home, family & emotional body issues (Jupiter in Cancer), partnerships and justice (Venus, Sun and Mars in Libra), and social and political institutions (Pluto in Capricorn).  

August 24-27: Venus in Libra joins Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto to clarify our values around relationships, peace and social justice.

September 14-19: Mercury in Libra joins Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto to bring clear insight to our minds about the issues facing us.

October 1-12: Sun in Libra brings a personal need to incarnate these news values and insights into our life.

December 25 -- January 8, 2014: Mars in Libra brings the passion and will to do something to bring about change.

April 21-24, 2014 :   On April 21, 2014, the 4th of 7 squares between Uranus at 14* Aries and Pluto at 14* Capricorn takes place, along with Jupiter at 14* Cancer and Mars retrograde at 14* Libra, forming another cardinal grand cross.  

As you can see, we are fully into labor--the rhythmic labor of a new birth.   

That grand cross will fall on America's Sun in our 4th of July birth chart.   Our very identity will be challenged and I believe that Americans will finally rise up and become the new patriots who will form a more perfect union.

Cathy Pagano is the author of a new book, "Wisdom's Daughters: How Women Can Change the World". Cathy trained at the C. G. Jung Institut-Zurich in dream interpretation, then got her M.A. in Counseling Psychology in Feminine Spirituality, and along the way became a certified Life Coach. As an astrologer and storyteller, she weaves the Cosmic Stories written in the stars and from The Bard's Grove, comments on emerging archetypal themes in movies. Cathy works with the tools of the imagination - dreams, alchemy, myths, astrology, symbolic language, storytelling, ritual - to awaken the Soul's wisdom.

I believe that Americans are called to a higher consciousness at this point in our history. We are called on to live up to our ideals and create the country our forefathers imagined. Inner consciousness needs to be acted upon for social justice.

Cathy believes that our writers and artists must take up our responsibility to create art that inspires, teaches and heals our humanity.

Cathy writes about political, psychological/spiritual, and cultural issues.
