The Full Moon is on Thursday, August 15, 2019 at 7:29 a.m. CDT in 22° Aquarius with the Sun, Venus and Mars in the later degrees of Leo. This opposition is between wanting to care for yourself and your immediate family versus compassion for the world as a whole. Both situations have value. But it can help your inner growth to be aware of scenarios as they come up. Sometimes it's enough to help just one person. Like the starfish story:
Jupiter just went direct at 14° Sagittarius on August 11, along with Uranus going retrograde at 6° Taurus. Two weeks ago I wrote about this aspect: "The energy pattern is upbeat and creative but erratic/unconventional." We're still within the orb of these two planets changing direction (which is two weeks on either side of the station date). Uranus going retrograde can symbolize issues with electrical and computer digital equipment. Jupiter going direct can influence our spending. For example, when my computer monitor totally died, I had to spend the money to buy a new one last week. I love my new monitor which is bigger than the old one. (One of Jupiter's keywords is expansion.)
Don't forget - Jupiter in Sagittarius is excellent for learning new things. Now that Jupiter is going direct again it's a great time to take class in person or online. Follow an interest. Travel to an historical site. Read a book or research your topic on the internet. There's a glorious generosity of people sharing their expertise online.
Days when Jupiter is strong often bring a sense of well-being. When you recognize that feeling this week, intensify the Jupiter by consciously enjoying that feeling. See how long you can stay balanced and sustain that feeling before you get distracted by other things.
In the future:
I will be giving the noon meditation on August 25th for the Temple of Kriya Yoga, meeting at Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago. "Look to This Day" will focus on spiritual practice and mindfulness in everyday life. This meditation is open to all. No registration required.
