Apprehending the Overself, Your Weekly Forecast 7/27-8/2
This week starts off with a First Quarter Moon in Scorpio. First Quarter Moons are all about taking action and setting intentions. In Scorpio we are learning to let go, surrender, and transmute spiritual and emotional energy that no longer serves us on a deep level. Sometimes we must sever ties with an old self in order for us to expand into these new forms of self awareness. It can feel like we are dying on the inside while we move into these new chapters of life. While insecurities around identity, self love, and confidence come to surface we could feel victimized by our current circumstances if we are feeling disempowered in our lives. It is important we find ways to rise out of our current defeat and into new forms of understanding. Human consciousness is under a big shift as we begin to evolve more into the Aquarian age.
Monday we also have Venus in Gemini making hard aspects to Jupiter and Neptune on Monday, we find ourselves potentially confused in relationship dynamics. We could be easily manipulated into thinking something that we are being told is the truth of a situation that may not be. It is hard to know what the “truth” is these days.
Another powerful transit on Monday will be with Mercury our planet of communication, squaring off with Mars, our planet of assertion. This can cause some tension when it comes to how we communicate our emotional needs to others. Mindfulness is key today, and if we are feeling short or irritable, we do best taking some down time or space for ourselves to recalibrate. We may take things personally, project ourselves onto others, and there is a lot of opportunity within these relationship dynamics for difficult conversations to be had that help us break through barriers and into new light or states of self awareness.
We also have many opportunities for creativity this week with Neptune and Jupiter making a harmonious sextile on Monday, and Mercury making a trine to Neptune on Thursday. Channeling feelings into inspiration is a positive way to empower yourself through the vibrational energies of the week. Our dream world and sensitivity to the energy of others is also enhanced during powerful transits involving Neptune. We are able to do a lot of spiritual work and healing within the subconscious realms.
On Friday , our Sun in Leo makes a trine to Chiron in Aries, helping us to heal issues that revolve around identity and our ability to assert leadership within our own lives. We may begin to feel more empowered with where we can take initiative in our own healing journey. On a larger scale, we are facing a collective identity crisis that is empowering so many movements within society to take off.
We benefit from being open to change in the days ahead. This is a great week to dismantle oppressive structures within the self.

First Quarter Moon’s are a time for renewal and rejuvenation, they’re a great time for setting intentions within the archetype of whatever sign they fall in. With the Moon in a First Quarter phase of Scorpio we are being asked where we need to let something go or transmute stagnant emotional energy into something else. We can think of the Death card in the Tarot as the frequency for today. What needs to transform into something else? What are we holding onto that needs releasing? What areas of our life do we feel victimized or frustrated by? What emotional dynamics do we perpetuate that may not always be helping us move forward? Do we have left over trauma or resentments that need acknowledging so that we can begin to let go and heal?
Venus, our planet of relationship in the sign of communication, makes a hard aspect to Jupiter and Neptune today. We need to be mindful of where we seek escapism in our lives. With Jupiter and Neptune also making a harmonious aspect, our need for expansion and growth is enhanced. We could potentially feel ungrounded and confused within our current relationships and we may begin to envision a life that we wish we were living instead of the current one we face (obviously I am sure a lot of us are fantasizing about better days ahead on many levels.)
We need to be mindful with money and not overspend this week, but we can easily tune into our creative strengths and be very productive if we use the energy that way.
Mercury, our planet of communication, makes a hard aspect to Chiron in Aries which can add a frequency of challenge to our communication dynamics. We are likely to take things personally and not see eye to eye with someone else. We need to be mindful today with where we project our feelings onto others. Feelings of inadequacy or insecurities are expected over the next couple days. This is a positive time to work through the deeper layers of the subconscious and try to uncover what deeper rooted issues are popping up that need our attention at this time.
