Tuesday, September 7, 2021 – hitting the ground running
The first day after the #NEWMOON and holiday weekend is turbo-charged with intensity and desire to get moving. Oddly, this much willingness to over-achieve could short-circuit some of our ability to get started and move productively through the day. Tackling one thing at a time, one step at a time, could really help us move through a series of tasks pretty efficiently. The afternoon could bring a strong desire to cut through hesitation and make decisions and prioritize the most essential items, especially if we find we’re spreading ourselves too thin and attempting to manage way too many projects at once. If we can pace ourselves and take some breaks, we’re likely to stay busy well into the evening, accomplishing quite a lot. Luckily, the Moon’s shift to fair-minded Libra at 10:20pm allows us give credit where it’s due – including to ourselves! – and bring much needed balance to our perspectives before bedtime.
Thursday, September 2
Thursday’s energy carries some cosmic spiritual nudges to consider giving ourselves and others a break – as long as that’s reasonable. Readjusting expectations to allow for more compassionate perspectives could help us to realize that other people often bring lessons when we’re ready to learn. Alternatively, we might run the risk of deceiving ourselves or over-idealizing our relationships with a possible temptation to see things through rose-colored glasses. Adjustments to creative projects are also likely. Strong feelings intensify into the afternoon which can benefit honest evaluations of projects and determination to see things through. The power of our true feelings could seem harsh and could become destructive if we lack awareness of inner motivations and try too hard to push anyone but ourselves. Luckily, any tensions could subside by late afternoon and positive, hopeful energies prevail through the evening hours.
Saturday night and Sunday, August 22, 2021 #FullMoonSunday #AquariusFullMoon
Emotional intensity and drama could build overnight on Saturday and into Sunday as the full Moon builds into exactness at 7:01am CT. Interestingly, this full Moon emphasizes the push pull between passion and dispassion and trying to reason our way through big issues using resourcefulness and ingenuity. It could be useful to apply some Aquarian principles of friendship and intellectual detachment, if we feel able to be logical in the face of unexpected events, strong feelings or even melodrama. While this full Moon could invite us to cut people slack as fellow humans, we could genuinely feel challenged to give much latitude to those we love or feel strongly about. Conversely, we might run the risk of going too far by minimizing our feelings, or even denying them altogether, consciously or unconsciously. The goal is to be honest with ourselves about what we want or what we’re dealing with, notice our feelings and desires without over-reacting, and perhaps find a reasonable way to talk about them or make plans to address them. The day brings additional shifts as the Moon then changes signs to watery, compassionate Pisces while the Sun moves into methodical, analytical Virgo for a month. This time of year suggests that we get ready to be busy and try to get organized around the important details of our daily routines and work life and health and wellness.

Astrology News and Blog Discussion
Powerful Summer Solstice sets tone for second half of Year!
The Summer Solstice occurs late in the evening of Sunday, June 20 when the Sun enters O degrees of Cancer, at 10:32pm CT. The Summer Solstice initiates the start of the Summer season in the northern hemisphere. It’s the day when we have the most daylight all year as the Sun travels its longest path through the sky. When the summer solstice happens in the Northern Hemisphere, the North Pole is tilted about 23.4° (23°27´) toward the Sun. Astrologically, the Summer Solstice highlights Cancer energy, what we nourish and cultivate in our lives as we begin the summer season of manifestation and growth. Summer is about the growing and blossoming of life, celebrating and enjoying the nutrients that connect us to one another and help us feel safe and alive. At the solstice, we celebrate the richness and fullness of life and the cleansing, strengthening light of the Sun. In Astrology, Cancer represents the mother and the family story, where we put down roots and establish a sense of belonging. It is our emotional, feeling nature, and can be quite sensitive, vulnerable, and protective. At times, Cancer energy can be easily overwhelmed, yet at its best Cancer is a receptive, nurturing, and very tenacious energy that asks how do I/we respond to what’s needed?
This critical, first degree of Cancer is quite energizing and each year’s Solstice carries the symbolic energy that sets the tone and themes for everyone for the next quarter and the rest of the year! The Summer Solstice also affords a timely, energetic opportunity to do ritual, go inward, and connect with the divine feminine. Ritual and reflection can help us to restore and recharge our emotional energies and our sense of belonging in our own bodies, as well as, in our “families” and our ability to inhabit our own stories.

2021 – Age of Aquarius – Update
As humanity continues its lengthy transition into the #AgeOfAquarius, February’s energy sounded a meaningful cosmic refrain, with a parade of planets continuing to move through the sign of Aquarius in a rare line up. The last time so many planets gathered in the sign of Aquarius was 1962! Of course, like Beetlebaum, powerful dwarf planet Pluto lingers in the late degrees of Capricorn indicating that potent forces of transformation are still working to rehabilitate and refurbish the major institutions and structures of government and society. Also discussed Pluto in Cap in recent blog post https://www.theresemurphy.com/blog
This push pull between traditional or “old” ways of organizing and holding power, represented by Saturn and Capricorn, and future ways of innovating more equitable and thoughtful systems of power, represented by Uranus and Aquarius, are playing out in dramatic astro-fashion in this year’s major configuration of Saturn square Uranus. Before the discovery of Uranus in 1781, Saturn was considered the ruler of both Capricorn and Aquarius and, after the discovery of Uranus, Aquarius terrain was given to unruly Uranus, for various reasons. Yet, this year’s square energy represents a bit of an arm wrestle where both and neither can win or lose. Like two cars coming into an intersection, there must be mutual recognition and choices about “which car goes first” to pass through the intersecting space. These planets are vying against each other in an intersecting space all year and, at times, pragmatic, strategic, responsible Saturn will predominate and at other times, unpredictable, freedom loving, change agent Uranus will go first – but neither will be completely free of the other this year and problems will only escalate if both do not express adequately. Since the planets serve as mirrors for our human experiences, these energies suggest that the future is upon us and change is definitely happening, but rebellion simply for the sake of disruption and chaos is untenable and unacceptable and cannot be allowed to proceed. These two planetary energies working together and influencing each other, can have massive and profound success in improving upon important existing structures as well as in establishing long overdue and much improved systems that benefit a much greater segment of humanity.

Mercury Retrograde Cycles in 2021 –
Coming soon! There’s 1 more Mercury retrograde cycle this year: 9/26 – 10/18. Brace yourselves! In 2022, there are 4 Mercury retrograde cycles!
A Mercury Retrograde Cycle is neither intrinsically good nor bad. It’s a 3 week cycle that occurs three times a year, typically, during which the planet Mercury appears to move backward from the Earth’s vantage point.
Since Mercury appears to retrace its path through the heavens, it can be beneficial to revisit, review, rethink where we have been — It’s a great time to have a personal, intuitive reading to support your process of reviewing and reflecting and preparing for what’s next! Please email for pricing and to schedule your private reading email@example.com
Often, during Mercury Retrograde Cycles, clear perspective is lacking, needed information is missing, important details could be over-looked and delays, glitches or breakdowns occur. Paying extra attention to details and allowing extra time for travel, meetings, errands and commitments can help decrease the stress of any snafus.
Mercury retrogrades can also reflect upsets with your instruments of communication and travel. Cars, computers, phones, appliances might act up or break down completely. If you travel, allow extra time and reconfirm your reservations. Consider going somewhere you’ve already been.
*Please note: our goal is to describe the astrology energies expressing for that day regardless of your astrology sign. We hope this information might be useful to offer additional perspective to the day. Sometimes we can’t post everyday and, as always, this is our perspective only. For more personalized information, please consider a private reading.
