Planetary Activity Aug 21-26

Welcome to the first edition of Planetary Activity where a Witch can get her weekly dose of planetary energy info. This isn’t your typical astrology ya’ll!

I’ll be discussing which chakras are being activated during these transits and help you figure out how to best utilize the energy. Don’t worry the aspects are still the same babies, it’s just another reminder of how interconnected af the Universe is!

August 21st: Monday

Solar Eclipse (Sun conjuncts Moon)

Chakras Being Activated:

Solar, Sacral, Heart

This transit event will maximize the fuck out of the Leo energy that is exuding from the Sun and the Moon at this time. The Moon passing between our planet and the Sun indicates that our wills and drive will be pushed towards our carnal desires and matters of the heart, our emotions in general. This also may be a time for the ego to reign supreme as Leo is known for being egocentric and this is a trait of the solar chakra when there is an excessive amount of energy in this chakra center. However, Leo is also known for being the charitable sort, if only for bragging rights. So we may find ourselves focused on some more charitable works and the concerns of the public. Any darkness that is within these chakra points will be highlighted at this time especially during the hours surrounding the exact total solar eclipse since this is a time where darkness will blot out the light, if only for a short time. Any feelings of anxiety, fear of isolation or loss, weak will, insecurities including self-doubt will be presented in full display at this time and one should do their best to remain chill af until the time passes. Mediation will be hella key during this time. If you really want to know, yes, the Universe is testing you.

Solar, 3rd Eye

Despite the fact that the darker parts of our nature will be showin their natural asses we have a remedy for that, it’s called Spirit! A trine is a harmonious energy effect and it’s happening between the Sun (ruler of you know what), and Uranus ruler of 3rd eye chakra. This will allow us to connect with our higher divine self in order to receive the messages we need to help us persevere during our transitional period as we shed ourselves of our old ways and habits that are being highlighted at the time. Take the time out to ask your higher self for guidance to help you during the shift and the energy will not seem so daunting.

Survival Method:

  • Incense: Cinnamon, Patchouli, Lavender
  • Herbal Blend: Chamomile, Star Anise
  • Gemstones: Yellow Jasper (solar), Herkimer Diamond or Clear Quartz, Amethyst (3rd eye), Amazonite, Emerald (heart)
  • Colors: Yellow, Green, Pink, Purple, Indigo

Mars trine Saturn

Solar, Root, Feet

You gonna feel this one way down in your roots as Saturn rules the chakras of the feet and root. The energy of Mars the ruler of the solar chakra works with the areas to help us cultivate a deeper integrity within ourselves and allows us to focus on stability and grounding at this time. You will notice your attention pulls directly towards your stability, security, home, familial groups and support groups. After the energy from the eclipse, it’s the most needed to allow us to bring things back into focus and concentrate on the development of balance if some of us got lost in the excessive solar energy.

Sun enters Virgo

Solar, Throat, Ears

As the Sun enters Virgo this shows that what we say and what we hear has the ability to affect our will and can allow us to either utilize our free will manifested in the form of stubborn or “blind” ambition or we can fall back and become weakened by the things we say and expose ourselves to hearing and become hindered by it. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo and the ruler of both the throat and ear chakras as it is the ruler of communication. Watch what you say as you are speaking it into existence. Remember the Sun helps to create life on this planet so when it enters into Virgo know that it means to give life to what you say and what you choose to absorb through sound will manifest itself within you, so pay attention to your surroundings.

Survival Method:

  • Incense: Cedarwood, Palo Santo, Ginger, Lemongrass
  • Herbal Blends: Dandelion root, Lemon peel
  • Gemstones: Golden Topaz (solar), Red Jasper, Ruby (root), Sodalite, Sapphire (throat), obsidian (grounding and protection, root)

 

August 24th, Thursday

Venus trine Chiron

b1c4ab17314719.562b8717c9d2c.gifChakras Being Activated:

Heart, Sacral, Hands

Venus dances pleasantly with Chiron the healer so that we can express our love and carnal pleasures physically, with our hands. We may seek to do things that serve us in a sexual or pleasurable way we may also seek to create, as Venus and the heart and higher heart rule the love of the art and music, which runs through the sacral chakra. But we won’t be ruled by pleasure alone, as the heart is the part where our deepest wishes are so we may seek activity that deals with making these dreams a reality. Since the energy is harmonious it is also a good time for one to meditate on any of these chakras if they are suffering from any damage.

Survival Method:

  • Incense: Palo Santo, Rose, Sandalwood, Strawberry
  • Herbal Blends: Bergamot, Orange Peel, Rose Hips
  • Gemstones: Carnelian, Citrine(sacral), Garnet (hands), Green Flourite (heart)

 

August 25th, Friday

Saturn goes Direct

source-1.gifChakras Being Activated:

Root, Feet

Saturn rules the chakras of the root and feet. This energy is going direct and will affect our sense of stability and activate our survival instincts. Any feelings or relationships that were built to support you in any way will be hilighted at this time and should be paid attention to. Do activities that ground and center you, connect with your support group and family ties that you might have. Now is the time to get in touch with our roots and honor them. They help give us the nutrients we need to foster our growth. If you are lacking stability and feel a sense of loss of a fear of loss take the time to cleanse the root chakra to help you rebalance and regain control over your energy.

Survival Method:

  • Incense: Sandalwood, Patchouli, Frankincense, Myrr
  • Herbal Blends: Angelica Root
  • Gemstones: Red Jasper, Ruby, Garnet, Obsidian (root)

 

August 26th, Saturday

Venus enters Leo

source-5.gifChakras Being Activated:

Heart, Sacral

This energy may have us focused on stroking our egos yet again and our will switches back towards to loveable, pleasurable things as we become activated in our Sacral, and heart chakras. Be aware of your new found relationships and “hook ups” as these may have only been initiated by your desire to be in control and taking confidence from that. As far as longer and dearer relationships go, now is the time to make sure you let them know how you feel and show a sense of gratitude towards them by going out and enjoying life together! Relationships with people help us shape who we are so let’s honor them and the even exchange of energy between you.

Sun conjuncts Mercury

source-6.gifCharkas Being Activated:

Solar, Throat, Ears

The energy of the solar, throat and ears chakras get ramped up during this time. Are you only hearing what makes you feel good or what your ego wants to hear? Just as you’re beginning to have fun with these fair weather, half-assed relationships the ego comes spewing out and the only thing that you want to hear are compliments. Remember, the solar chakra is also a place of tranquility, prosperity and above all integrity so be sure to speak that way, behave that way and listen to others who speak this way also as it may be divine guidance from Spirit and it will carry you to a more positive atmosphere, one that allows us to reach our true potential.

Survival Method:

  • Incense: Spearmint, Geranium, Chamomile
  • Herbal Blends, Peppermint, Spearmint
  • Gemstones: Amber, Yellow Calcite (solar), Blue Calcite, Lapis Lazuli (throat, ears)

You guys know how the hero story works, there has to be a call to action and I’ll be damned if all this planetary activity doesn’t do just that for us right now! Take the time to meditate this week I feel like that is so crucial I can’t stress it enough. Don’t forget to gemstone up and everything will be fine. Take the time to transition into the person you want to be this week and shed the fuck outta the rest because if you don’t the Universe is gonna flay yo ass alive!
