Home is it. You need the retreat, the time, the silence. Not too many people, please. A new chapter of healing begun Sunday, July 23 is fully secure by Monday, August 7. As August begins, you begin to connect deeply with those who really matter, and as August ends you’re ready to make the decision on location and property.
But not until then! The greatest planetary support now is found in your private twelfth house. Sleep, dreams, rest, contemplation, writing, philosophizing, gazing at nothing.
Your healing, for one, transforms the WORRY demons. You essentially take on a troubling terror, mindset, or past addiction and have it licked by the end of the month. Pallas Athene in your ninth house makes you brave enough to do this now. She was the goddess of wisdom, after all!
So when you yearn for quiet time, go for it. Move home, go on retreat, get away, whatever, to take care of yourself. Tip? The person (or company) who recognizes this is the one for you.
You’ll also be dealing with your ruler Mercury in retrograde – in your sign of Virgo (doubly whammy!) – so seriously I say to you: take the next month off. No need to worry about finances, and no disaster awaits you. You will be fine, and your loved ones will be content. You’ve already got it made – just not in the form you expected.
You may feel like you’ve been swimming through so many interpersonal relationships that you’re drowning. Your family can make it more intense. Breathe deep, sweet Virgo, breathe deep.
Do you know you can detoxify just by breathing deeply? Forest-breathing.
Life’s a little hard to take right now, or I wouldn’t be mentioning it. You do need a break.
Retrograde is all about going backwards, right? Going over stuff from the past. Over and over. Re-examining. Every step, every action. Rewind the video of your life. Over and over. What really happened. Rewind as many times as you need. You must see every detail. Can’t miss, nor skip, a beat.
What you’ve done. What you can do better. How you can make your life better.
Backwards means past, too, so huge chunks of PAST YOU – who you were, what you were, in the past – resurface at this time. You’ll love this part!
Wise old Saturn, your toughest lesson, turns direct August 25 in your home and early family sector. On his final leg, until December 19, not back with more lessons for another 28 years. So, spend time with your original family. Four to five more months. Saturn, AKA Father TIME, hates short cuts!! So give it TIME. Do it properly. Do it right. That’s it.
I’m such a psychic nag…but seriously, you will be SO glad you did this. The most positive part of this experience is that you name to yourself the people with whom you feel most comfortable. Those with whom you can really relax and be yourself. Your true self. (Putting on a show, or trying to keep up with the Whomevers, is so deeply exhausting, isn’t it?) This is true freedom. And it’s priceless. Can’t be bought.
Use what you get for love, and also for your creativity. If you are an artist or producer of any kind, this month will be a goldmine for you. You hit pay dirt!
To get into more specifics, you will SPECIFICALLY experience healing in THESE areas:
Getting in touch with your subconscious
Activating your psychic gifts
Healing and therapy: WHY do you suffer so much?
Your Past and its various complexes
Buried Sorrows: the way you sabotage yourself
All physical inhibitions — including retreats and places of confinement
Having trouble sharing any of this with a partner or loved one? You won’t after August 8.
That’s all you need to do.
The universe is working out the rest.
P.S. I should leave it there – you need the rest, after all – but I can’t resist letting you in on the most dramatically productive point of your healing. Which will be the solar eclipse Monday, August 21 in your twelfth healing house! Not the time for a party, more time for losing your mind and then getting it back in a way you never have, but you will have your own reasons to celebrate.
Here’s the drill on the eclipse!
Already named “The Great American Eclipse”, this Leo wonder will stretch across fourteen states from Oregon to South Carolina. A stellar twist on making America great (again), it will actually eclipse the country, darkening the sun and turning day to night. “A thing most strange,” as Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth.
You don’t need to watch in order to experience its life-changing effects. Native Americans say it is a sacred union of sun and moon, and it is not for us to watch.
Eclipsing visibility, blocking light, cover-ups, alternative facts, all take center stage.
For your individual sign – check your ascendant and Jupiter also – here’s where what’s hidden comes to light.
And where you experience a sea change, for better or worse.
You can finally be honest about:
Aries: True passions. Your creations / offspring.
Taurus: Home and property. Your parents.
Gemini: Your words and gestures. Close relatives.
Cancer: Finances. What you own.
Leo: Your body. Appearance in the world.
Virgo: Your unconscious. Private dreams.
Libra: Friends. Your alliances and groups.
Scorpio: Public self. Life direction.
Sagittarius: Your education. Cultures different from yours.
Capricorn: That you share with another. (Money or intimacy.)
Aquarius: Deals and agreements.
Pisces: Health. Your work routines.
Gemini’s gestures to impress cease – and he can be exactly who he is. Libra can stop trying to please friends and social groups and just be herself. Aries can be truthful about her passions, Taurus about his parents’ origins, Cancer about finances, Leo about his maturing body, Capricorn about what she has shared, Aquarius about what agreements she made, and so on. Uncomfortable initially, but such relief.
Leo Robert Mueller shines in the news after the eclipse – with a different direction. OY? What’s this?
Astrologers vary with their eclipse predictions and not to join the alarmist American bandwagon, only to note: after unrest in Charleston, water and tides will be massively lifted, more attacks in and from DC, and America as a whole experiences a huge financial shift. I’m also advising clients not to move to Oregon.
And there’s more detail – for you individually.
The eclipse covers 1,500 miles in 90 minutes. Unprecedented since June 8, 1918, with echoes going back to August 11, 1999. What were you doing August 11, 1999? Look at your old diaries.
I predict hubris will fall, just as Icarus did. Wherever we have felt so inadequate that we had to cover up, impress, even lie, we can finally let it all go. Let it all fall, like idols on pedestals, like desperate gestures. We will be free of pride and illusion. C. S. Lewis wrote that pride is the anti-God state.
“It was through Pride that the devil became the devil. Pride leads to every other vice. It is the complete anti-God state of mind.”
Wikipedia describes HUBRIS:
In its ancient Greek context, it describes behavior that challenges the gods which in turn brings about the downfall of the perpetrator of hubris. Hubris indicates a loss of contact with reality.
Icarus was punished by the gods for hubris, flying too close to the sun, the fire melting his false wax wings, and he fell from the sky. Just as Trump’s hubris will bring about his fall. What better illustration than looking defiantly at the sun during its sacred union with the moon? The reality – his blindness – will be glaring.
This will be a time of reckoning for those who have allowed pride and greed to take over to the extent that they are no longer healthy. Forcing the eyes open is a painful surgery! So don’t be surprised if, prior to your deeper vision, you are in agony.
The planet of reckoning is wise Saturn, which rules Capricorn, which rules foundations.
And Saturn goes direct August 25, four days after the eclipse. The pendulum swings back. Watch: August 21 – 26.
Capricorn can finally be truthful about shared monies. Higher ups who don’t will fall, beginning with (statue) Capricorn Robert E. Lee (almost half his chart is Capricorn: Sun, Mercury, Jupiter, Chiron) to still extant Capricorns Anthony Scaramucci, Jared Kushner, Donald Trump, Jr, Eric Trump, Jeff Sessions, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, and Michael Flynn. And in North Korea, Capricorn Kim Jong-un.
Capricorn Betsy DeVos continues to be protected by Libra Jupiter until October 10 (as do Libra Jupiter Donald Trump and his daughter Ivanka Trump, also a Libra Jupiter.)
As the sun’s power is eclipsed, the moon’s power brightens. Revealing unconscious drives, the inner movement of the world, the energy of the water on the earth: All that is ruled by the moon.
A fascinating point about the moon: It rules need.
When does need become greed, and when does addiction take over?
When does addiction become so powerful that other beings are disregarded?
When does a sociopathic disorder begin?
For the world, this will be overwhelmingly positive. After much doublespeak, the truth – no matter what it reveals – will be a great relief. August’s last week will be an eye-opener, in every sense of the word.
Every country has its secrets, but the two most highlighted during this time will be America (higher ups coming off their pedestals) and to a lesser extent Britain (the royal family.)
I end with Shakespeare again – the greatest, Leo Jupiter – who always wrote of the direct connection between the heavens, stars, nature, animals, and human beings.
You know how to do that, don’t you, Virgo? Just put your lips together. And blow.
Time for your own private session?
If you’re hesitant, or haven’t been read before, please read what my clients say.
I look forward to speaking with you, Virgo. Take care.
With love, Madalyn
