Starcodes July 8, 2022

Be Rembrandt. As the weekend begins the planets resonate with the chart of artist Rembrandt Van Rijn. We may feel haunted and opinionated with a mischievous twinkle and an unusual access to our creative flow. The vital sun and expressive Mercury now in introspective Cancer, artistic Venus in versatile Gemini, and the Moon in broody Scorpio all mirror his chart.

Reinvent a form of art. Invents a new storyline for life. Create a new trajectory for our nation’s progresses. It will take great creativity to turn this country’s political boat in a good direction and turn the trajectory of our aching ecosystem towards health. It could take great creative efforts on our part to make the most out of our personal life in the face of these challenges.

That has to be the twin vision, express creativity at home with an eye on how we can re-create our world’s future. Enrich our life, sculpt our garden, and creatively respond to problems in the moment with kindness and safety. Bring that creativity into the kitchen and into loving relationships.

The Scorpio Moon can invoke an artistic moodiness over the weekend, people will need both time alone and time deeply connected. While we can work together on a common goal, many people won’t want to talk about it too much, don’t want to hear gossip and may not want to process a lot. Our emotions can run deep but we might not necessarily want to talk about it. Let sleeping dogs and grumpy people lie still. On Sunday the Moon enters expansive Sagittarius and brings a breath of summer. It gives us room to break routine, ask tough questions, talk to strangers and laugh together.

On Tuesday the Moon enters Capricorn and waxes full on Wednesday, inspiring a new determination- what is that determination for good, bad, or determine depression, it is up to us. This is an important time to look at our bucket list, our goals or vision quests, look at the direction which beckons us, and make sure we are, however circuitously, heading in the right direction. Capricorn highlights our need for work that matters, which can feel the opposite to our present Cancerian need for renewal and homeland. But let’s explore how they are two sides to one coin; a safe home base supports our work in the world.
