Monkey Shines ~
Sun enters the sign of the Monkey and we are headed for a Tiger full moon.
This post follows the Sun (image) in the sign of the Monkey throwing a spotlight on friends, fun, family and partnerships.
As we approach the high arc of summer we hit a well-defined, peak at the curve. Enjoy the moment… soon the harvest season begins and the long cycle of winter follows.
Wheels, upon wheels, upon wheels turn to move time forward by grinding our past into dust. On December 21, 2012 we hit an exact alignment of our galaxy with the center of the universe. I coin this the “Holy Navel” effect and will blog about it more, later.
Mercury (messenger) is still spinning backward in the Monkey (talent) sign and will converge with (and periodically be conjunct with) our lady Luna, the moon (moods) as well as the Sun (image) king during this phase. This brings bodies of interest close and intimate without proper background data. Caution is advised unless you like the wool pulled-over your eyes.
The short term aspects are a potent, cocktail of mixed-messages that can leave stains and an oily, residue. Passions run deep and the chemistry is volatile as the luck stars swerve and swirl in a cosmic mix. Carry your lucky rabbit tootsie there is an ill fate blowing in the wind.
Keep pushing forward by taking out the trash, and by resetting, reworking the details and parts. Things will begin to slide into place when you hit-on the right combination of elements and target a formula. Try, try and try again.
Use basic, common sense and counter intuitive methods for manifesting the golden means. Let things ripen and consume them now or store them for later.
The magic sum of ten flies in the west. This brings a big bonanza to the bird (aka: Phoenix, rooster, Virgo) out of some fallen ashes. Benefits will accrue in new directions, follow the tiny threads and ride the rapid currents.
Nostalgia laced with a whimsical new-new, era will dominate the scene. Plumes of smoky rims and bands of feathers stud the runway set in fashionable futures for days to come. Various cultures bend and stretch, branching out in a new generation.
Looking forward the next post will be on the Tiger (vision), full moon (moods), August 1, 2012. Guaranteed there is something that will sneak up on you, us or them. I wouldn’t lay down anything in stone or write in permanent ink until after the 8th of August. The ground is still shifting and new revelations are still arriving.
Stars & Signs: posting lucky stars for the Sun (image) in Monkey (talent) sign, for the the pre-harvest cycle from July 22 to August 22, 2012.
Rat – aka: Sagittarius, mouse, mongoose: Lucky stars are not as fresh and potent as needed for the current status quo. Continue with all the rejuvenation techniques to restore an inner glow and gain a solid, sense of well-being. Practice makes perfect, nourish the soul. Think of this as the short down-stroke (pull back) on a certain upswing. Stay close to Om.
Ox – aka: Capricorn, bull, cow / planetary influence – Pluto: When things get rolling they can seem never ending… best to hold that bounce-back, effect in check. To retort to others in bullish fashion might get you hamstrung or hog-tied. Don’t scratch that itch, medicate it and uproot the under-lying, cause. Stand your ground light as a feather on tippy toes not in concrete, lest you get thrown in a lake. Be calm and collectible.
Tiger – aka: Aquarius: Boy do you have a furnace on full blast. You’d think solar flares were being launched from our stars surface. But it is only the stunning artifacts from the sparks you are starting. I’m thinking you’ll want to keep that tongue in cheek and bow down to a higher authority. Hear-felt apologies are not omissions they are a privilege of humility and they are never too late when given sincerely. You’ll be serving a higher vision when you see beyond what is.
Hare – aka: Pisces, rabbit, cat, fish / planetary influence – Neptune retrograde 6/4 to 11/10: This is the destruction zone for another few weeks yet. Just park the big dumpster over the dark abyss and start shucking and jiving anything that is not bolted down. This is no time to dance around unfinished (past) projects that never seam to end. Tie up those loose ends, then pump and dump to lighten the load. Your magic carpet arrives soon and you’ll want to travel light as air.
Dragon – aka: Aries / planetary influence – Uranus retrograde 7/13 to 12/13: Well looks like you made some silky stockings from a sows ear. Getting your mojo on! If you find yourself slipping and sliding in and out of costume just know this is a rank and file measure of true leadership. Wear all your hats with a straight-up posture for the greater good. Caution is advised against buying into shellfish types that wither at day’s end. Go long, stay strong and make room for a series of successes that you can park in a vault.
Snake – aka: Taurus, serpent, bull: Plant seeds for greater success while keeping an eye on the upcoming harvest. Something is coming to fruition when you least expect it. Take the ring and go with it. You will be given a key and it fits exactly where you want it to go. Though the road is rocky and under construction gates and doors fly open wide for you. Take the money and run all the way to the bank.
Horse – aka: Gemini, twins / planetary influence – Jupiter and Venus: You have a grand set of illusions all sorted out and they are all receiving a lot of special attention. You can make hay, pay while the sun is shining for you my dear. These are the days that will mark a new beginning from a longer, larger cycle that had to end. Don’t look back its quicksand. That tiny scrap of paper in your hand is a lucky, golden ticket. Use it wisely it can be anything you want, you decide.
Goat – aka: Cancer, sheep, deer: You appear to be catching a break out of seventh heaven. There is a fly ball of celestial goodies dropping down on your dance floor of wishes and dreams. Dust off your party shoes and twinkle those toes. Your treasures don’t outweigh any past grief so let all that go. Your ability to mow down the sticky, brambles for new growth is legendary but please don’t eat the daises!!
Monkey – aka: Leo, lion / planetary influences – Mercury retrograde 7/14 to 8/7, Sun 7/22 to 8/22: You are the ring leader and the master of ceremonies. Come, step into the spotlight on center stage. Accept your awards for staging the craftiest, cleverest and most charming come back in such a grand, design. Your outstanding depth perception may only have a limited run but is scene in a broad way. Touche, you were born to play this role and cake walk the prize.
Bird – aka: Virgo, phoenix, rooster: After burns and big shock waves are still being calculated on rickety scales. Splurge on the right tools. This modest wisdom will pay you back generously. Fix your faults instead of fixating on the imperfections of others. When you correct the imbalance of subpar equipment you’ll see an immediate reward. You have the magic, power of ten and a free wildcard that can be used for anything so by all means feel free to roll the dice.
Dog – aka: Libra, lion, scales / planetary influence – Saturn, Mars: Just when you need that one lucky strike you seem to hit it big time. It goes out of the park and lands on your putting green. There are oceans of opportunity out there just basking and sparkling in the limelight. You only need ONE to ride out this tide. Don’t want for what you don’t have. Make use of what what’s on hand and you’ll grease the slides and cross the plate for the home run you’ve been hankering for.
Pig – aka: Scorpio, boar, eagle: Strap on your breast plate of steely resolve, there is turbulence up ahead. The same, ol’ story keeps leaving dull impressions in it’s wake. Keep re-setting, re-staging and re-engaging your best-laid plans. Dreams that have been set aside, long forgotten can be re-ignited. Grass breaks concrete mon Aimee and nature is a force to be reckoned with. Heavens gate opens a short window so jump through the hoop at the first chance of a getaway. A little boost into another orbit is just enough push to move you into new headspace and bring a rerun of glory days, unending.
