Last week we were in reflection mode: retreating, refining our outlook by realizing that we need beauty in our lives and potentially having profound insights about the past, represented by the Tarot card of the Hermit.
This week is one of the four weeks in the year where the Wheel turns. As of today we are entering the Cross of the Sphinx, which is all about giving direction. It is directly being represented by the Wheel of Fortune in the Tarot that is cornered by Aquarius, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. The four gates of this week's Cross of the Sphinx are in the middle of these four signs. The direction that is set this week is our direction for the quarter of Duality, that we are entering into on the 5th of August. This quarter is all about bonding and connecting with the other.
The 7th gate is dominating this new direction and the 7 is the army, the power behind the throne, looking to influence and lead. This week we will have a lot of tribal activations, focused on our people, so the big question and reorientation is: who do I have to join with in order to have influence and in order to lead people into the future? This week we will get a global opportunity to get it right, a global opportunity to reorient ourselves towards that and towards the people that we can team up with in taking a leading role and serving the world, because service is ultimately what leadership is all about – if expressed correctly. This week is all about wanting to give a new direction to ourselves or to humanity and the question: how and with who can we do that? Every one of the six days in our planetary week has a different leadership role and energy. We are getting a taste of all of them this week, one after another.
The Sun transiting the 7.3 on the 7th of August might be especially interesting for us, since it is about getting rid of what did not work, preparing and opening us up for the transpersonal approaches to leading. This will also be the day of the Lunar Eclipse.
The transpersonal leadership starts with the 7.4 on the 8th of August, it is about finding opportunities to influence through brotherhood and sisterhood and through one's network.
The other four gates of the Cross of the Sphinx are about our direction in life as well. They determine our trajectory and what we manifest in life (2). This week it's time to really dive into the vision that we have and let ourselves be put on the right track to manifest it. Your mind does not know what action to take, but even when you feel mentally uncertain or frightened your body knows where to go. Trust your body's knowing!
Note that almost throughout this whole week, the retreat and epiphany energy from last week stays with us. It does no longer come to us through the strong energy of the Sun, but as a learning experience and possibility for transformation through Mars forming the 33-13 channel (3).
For many people monday and wednesday are likely to be more emotional than the other days. This is emotionality regarding who belongs to us and who doesn't, emotionality regarding broken deals and our community.
Don't take these energies personal if they effect you, just let them pass through.
