3rd Quarter Taurus “Merchant’s Moon” at 1 degree on July 24, 2019 at 6:17 PM PST/9:17 PM EST/2:17 AM UK on 07/25/19
The 3rd Quarter Moon changes modalities as the Sun and Moon shift from Cardinal to Fixed signs. The Sun and Moon transit through the Royal Stars of Leo and Taurus. This part of the Cancer lunation occurs as a prelude to the “Day out of Time” on July 25th. The Day out of Time kicks off a planetary New Year leading up to the Cosmic Party known as the 8:8 Lion’s Gate!
The waning Moon spends time with Uranus in Taurus, and, together, they guide you to review your relationship with Money, Worth, and Value. What aspect of Life holds the most worth to you? Take a cosmic Time-Out this week to examine how you really feel. The Leo Sun will keep things light as the Moon and Uranus connects you with your deeper sense of what truly matters.
SPIRIT FIRE TRINE: LIGHT YOUR HEART A FIRE!
A Grand Fire Trine appears between Mars, Jupiter, and Chiron to remind you of your true Spiritual nature. Mars receives a lightning bolt from Saturn and the South Node to awaken the Divine Masculine to focus on the Heart chakra. Return to Love is the quest for all Knights of the Round Table. Venus and Mercury Rx come into exact alignment to reorient your mind towards the Divine Feminine who nurtures, loves, and protects. Create Sanctuary space within you to serve as your place of peace. Sanctuary will serve your Light Worker mission on Earth. Timelines are shifting, the past is collapsing, and new realms of possibilities are being born within you moment to moment. Taurus Moon grounds you to find your true value in this awakening reality with Uranus. Leo Sun lights up your Aura up to be cleansed and purified with the power of Love’s pink diamond light.
Are you ready to play the game of Life at this advanced level of Love?

To help you see more clearly, let’s take a look through the eyes of the Merchant’s Moon.

3rd Quarter Moon Energetics:
Release ~ Let Go ~ Forgive
Third Quarter Moon dynamics embrace the powers of Letting Go, Releasing, and Forgiveness. This lunar stage focuses on the wounds outside yourself by drawing you inward to feel who may have hurt, offended, diminished, or neglected you. Ask yourself where you may have done this to another. It’s a two-way mirror that gives you your power back. This lunar phase week helps you to empty your ego and allow the Universe, your Angels, and Guides to assist you in feeling more supported. Reflect upon the Cancer New Moon, 1st Quarter Libra, and Capricorn Full Moon as your focus points this week. The more you can let go, the more space there is to create with in the next New Moon in Leo (+ Black Moon)!
“Merchant’s Moon”: The Meaning of Value
During a waning Third Quarter Moon, your inward personal journey of self-development turns outward to gaze upon the wounds of humanity. Taurus in this dynamic is called the “Merchant’s Moon”. Taurus is about financial well-being and the Merchant’s energy is geared towards the pursuit of wealth. The Moon is asking you to reflect upon how you connect with money and in what energetic ways do you spend and make money. Last week’s Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn, along with the heavy hitters Saturn, South Node, and Pluto, had an extreme impetus to eclipse out mindless and over-indulgent consumerism. The Summer Eclipse Survival Kit Course focused on the needless waste created by unconscious use of the Earth’s resources. The course teaches you how to regard what you choose to spend your wealth and abundance on to be cleared by how it will affect the next seven generations. Mother Earth is tired of First World gluttony and lack of understanding sustainability. Tune into the Merchant’s Moon and deeply reflect upon how you spend your money, invest in resource sustainability, and what businesses to support. Choose very wisely because your dollars make a difference between sustainability or extinction.
3rd Lunar Mansion ~ “The Palace”
The Merchant’s Moon passes through the 3rd Lunar Mansion. This cosmic mansion is guarded by the presence of Venus and Jupiter in the 1st decan of Taurus and dances with the Pleiades. Taurus takes Aries’ new beginnings and grows them. Abundance and good fortune are to be found in the 3rd Lunar Mansion with Taurus’ fertile power to grow things through Gratitude. Your dreams can become reality within “The Palace”. You are invited to stretch beyond prior limitations and allow more into your life. You may be tempted with over-indulgence, so keep your feet on the ground and know when you become full. Ask yourself, “What truly feeds my Soul?” Your answers will be what sustains you rather than over indulges you with momentary pleasures that may come at a cost. In the 3rd Lunar Mansion you are to learn good boundaries and the true nature of pleasure. You will see what the heavy cost of consumerism does to Mother Earth. Last week’s Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse has created new rules around how to live sustainably on the planet — and that requires you to be conscious of what you utilize. Your sustainable practice now is to make your choices based on how they will affect the next Seven Generations. The Palace of the 3rd Lunar Mansion shows you how to sharpen that skill by tempting you with momentary pleasures versus what truly feeds your Soul.
MOON VS. SUN:
Moon at 1 degree Taurus:
“A saint’s bones have turned to pure gold.”
The 3rd Quarter waning Taurus Moon helps you reflect upon looking for what is absolutely enduring, essential, and of ultimate worth. The Merchant’s Moon slows you down and teaches you patience, persistence, and endurance. Notice the frustration of others who want everything to move faster. Be like the Turtle who wins the race, stay focused on what has value to you, and you will find it. The context of the world’s material values are based on what will last and what doesn’t last. But to your Soul, you look at what is beautiful, pure, and holy. Material worth is an illusion because its nature continually changes form through evolution.
The “Merchant’s Moon” is conjunct Uranus, the Great Awakener. Uranus appears as “A person cleansing their aura with pink light.” Uranus reminds you that have the power to free yourself from negativity and allow the spiritual light to shine through you. When you tap into your multidimensional Self, you feel the bountifulness of the Universe. Your heart and Soul know that love is the key to opening the doorway to everything. When you cleanse your energy body, aka Aura, you regenerate yourself. The more you do, the faster your life will progress. Saturate yourself with this intention of cleansing your Aura with Love’s pink light so that your work on Earth will be more effective. As you focus your intention to do this again and again, the Pink Light will be eternally imbedded in your consciousness.
Sun at 1 degrees Leo:
“On the surface of water, flecks of dust floating.”
The newly born Leo Sun wants you to remember that you are an emotional Water Being and you must continually be fluid to purify yourself from the heaviness of life. Dust and ash are symbols of the past, and the past needs constant clearing. Let the past sink, so that your watery true nature can carry it away. If you let the past stay, it will float on the surface of your being, resisting purification. If you allow the past to be cleared, you allow your old identity to be purified and washed away. Listen to the promptings of your Higher Self which feel like joy. Get really good at turning off the inner voice of fear and limiting beliefs. Your careful listening channels your Inner Wisdom. It all depends on what you allow into your space via your mind and heart.
Mars, ruler of Aries and now in Leo helps you as He appears as “An ancient text, long kept secret, is revealed to the public.” Mars says you are like an ancient text – something very special. Mars ignites your confidence this week but warns you against falling into the trap of arrogance and validation. If your focus becomes gaining attention to feed your ego, you will weaken your special gifts. You are to remember your true specialness and then go forth to ignite that awesome awareness up in others. Be a Light Warrior and uplift and attune others to their spiritual Self. That is your highest task.
As you close this Eclipse lunar cycle, create a new Sanctuary space for yourself over the next six months. You are made of two types of consciousness when you take a physical body: your Soul and your body’s intelligence. When you serve your Soul and take care of your physical body, you serve the Temple of God and all your Ancestors of the past and Descendants of the future. Take this powerful week to find your true value and worth. Purify your Aura with Love’s pink light. Return to your watery nature. The clearing of your emotional body to live peacefully in your heart nourishes the Earth. Your watery, emotional nature infuses the fertile soil and grows new life, new food, and new possibilities.
