Pluto and Uranus began this cycle of their cosmic dance in the 60s in the sign of Virgo, which deals with our health, our environment, our food, our service and work, our animals and our unique individuality.   So it makes sense that the Health Care Act sets off this first square between the planets of evolution and revolution.   Don't we all deserve the opportunity to live a healthy life?   Now, if we can just force Congress to dismantle all corporate monopolies beginning with Monsanto . . .

Mother (Cancer) and Father (Capricorn) have to be re-energized as archetypal realities each year at this time.   The Cancer Mother is the source of nourishment and self-worth, while the Capricorn Father is the protector from and bridge to a large world.    What really nurtures us? How much protection do we need?   What kind of world do we want to create?   What's stopping us from creating it?

All full Moons deal with awareness, with shining the light of consciousness (Sun) into the Unconscious (Moon).   Each full Moon asks us to become conscious of those aspects of life we all share in.   This month's Moon in Capricorn deals with the rules of society, while the Sun in Cancer with the needs of the soul.   How well do the inner strictures and rules of patriarchy serve the needs of our souls?   Not very well it seems.

On an outer level, how well is our society serving our personal goals and our communal goals?   Do our government /financial institutions create an atmosphere of security and balance that helps us flourish as a people?   Or do they stifle our creativity, limit our possibilities and ignore our true needs?   Most people would rather have a clean environment, secure jobs, equal pay, better education, better access to health care, the opportunity to create a good life rather than a war.   Most people want a clean environment, but our representatives are more concerned with corporate welfare than our welfare.   Most people do not want war, and yet our taxes go to pay for wars that really only benefit the bankers, corporations and gun dealers.   Our needs would be better served by having our infrastructures revitalized, our educational system overhauled and our health system available to everyone who has been poisoned by corporate-generated pollution.

The Sabian symbol for the Sun at 13* Cancer is: A Hand with a prominent thumb is held out for study.   In palmistry, the thumb symbolizes the Will.   This symbol speaks to the power of our Will to shape our character.   We are given a chance to make choices every day that shape our character.   We can let circumstances overwhelm us or we can use our will to stand up for what we believe in and so shape our life to our own specifications.   We really don't need others to tell us who we are if we take hold of ourselves and shape ourselves into the people we want to be.   Individuality can only be expressed through a strong character. (Dane Rudhyar, An Astrological Mandala, p. 118)   This image says Value who you really are.

The Sabian symbol for the Moon at 13* Capricorn is:   A Fire Worshiper meditates on the ultimate realities of existence.    Fire is a mysterious and fascinating element, one that symbolizes the power of consciousness and transformation.   It's time to meditate on this powerful aspect of life, because we do need a big cultural transformation.   Fire can be both creative and destructive, and so we must use our WILL and our CHARACTER to decide how we will handle the coming transformations.  

There is a fateful YOD between Venus in Gemini, Mercury in Leo and Pluto in Capricorn.  Our job is to communicate (Mercury) with charm and creativity (Venus) about the issues facing our world (Pluto). 

There is a helpful fire trine between Uranus in Aries, Mercury in Leo and the North Node in Sagittarius that can focus our will and our words towards healing and higher truths.   We can try to find a way to form a bridge of understanding with those people who are frightened by the changes.   The more powerful our vision of a possible future is, the easier it will be to explain it to others.

There is also a T-square (3 or more planets at 90* angles) between Ceres, the South Node, Jupiter and Venus in Gemini, the North Node in Sagittarius and Neptune and Chiron in Pisces.   These energies in mutable signs want to finish up old business and re-focus our attention on Cosmic Truth.   Which is, we are all one species and partake of one spirit.   It's time we worked together toward a common future instead of fighting over it (Mars is in Libra, the sign of cooperation and diplomacy).  

July 3 -- Mars goes into Libra after 8 months in Virgo.   If you haven't gotten your act together yet, you'll see it in how your relationships play out in the next 6 weeks.

July 13th -- Uranus goes retrograde until December 13th, turning its radical energy inward, awakening us to those internal structures that keep us imprisoned in the past.   Another internal wake-up call for all of us.   The Sabian symbol for Uranus at 9*Aries is: A crystal gazer.   This symbolizes the development of an awareness of organic wholeness; the round sphere holds within it images of future possibilities.   It's time to turn within to find those images.

July 14th -- Mercury goes retrograde until August 7th.   You know the drill -- release, refine, redo.   Mercury goes retrograde at 13*Leo: An old sea captain rocking himself on the porch of his cottage.   This image of quiet recollection brings us the wisdom we need, gleaned from our past experiences, to understand that future we're look for in the crystal ball.

Happy Birthday America!   My wish for us is to finally grow up and realize that true freedom requires us to make choices and stand up for what we believe in.

Bright Blessings to all of us, all over the World!

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.
