Magical Times for July & August 2018

by Bob Makransky


Planetary transits – in conjunction with Planetary Hours – are a simple way to plan your activities to take advantage of the karmic ebb and flow of the cosmos. These favorable / unfavorable times to act (or refrain from action) hold true for everyone; but they are particularly effective when a celestial event occurs on or opposite a planet or angle (Ascendant or Midheaven) in your natal horoscope. You can ascertain the positions of the planets and angles in your natal horoscope for free from astro.com.

Best times to initiate / pray / cast spells for healings (white candle, visualize sick person healthy and happy NOW); these are also the best times for moving or departing on journeys (time of leaving home or takeoff): 7/20/2018 between 4:43-5:41 pm; 8/17/2018 between 8:35-9:23 am.

7/10/20181:04 pm Jupiter Stationary Direct @ 13° SC 21’ = This may bring an opportunity to lighten up, join together with others, and take a detached, generous, and conciliatory overview. This is a good day to make prayers or cast spells for money. At exactly 8:30 am on Monday in NYC (8:18 am Boston; 8:34 am Philly) light a green candle, take a deep breath, and vigorously shake your body to cast off all your money worries. It’s better not to focus on money qua money, but rather on what you need the money for; that these needs are being abundantly met; and you are joyous and positive about your future! It’s important that you see yourself as being wealthy enough to give money away, rather than imagining yourself on a yacht being waited on hand and foot – i.e. that you are a conduit for abundance, it doesn’t just stop with you.

7/12/20186:04 am sun opposition Pluto @ 20° CN/CP 01’ = There may be a conflict of wills or bad faith going on. Your viewpoint is not going to be accepted or appreciated so you had better just hold your tongue now (let go of obsessions). If it is unavoidable, arrange to approach others (especially men / boss) 11:54 am-12:48 pm or 8:25-9:00 pm Wednesday.

7/24/20183:23 pm Venus opposition Neptune @ 16° VI/PI 10’ = Expectations of others are likely to be disappointed now. Try to be aloof and unconcerned (rather than to indulge your worry and fear) since things aren’t as bad as you might think. Approach others 8:22-9:12 am.

7/26/20181:02 am Mercury Stationary Retrograde @ 23° LE 27’ = A breakthrough, perhaps quite unexpected, in your current situation or relationships. You get past a blind spot – a sticking point or hang-up – that was holding you back, by looking at things from a new point of view. You see yourself in a new light, in a new role vis a vis other people, and need tact, aplomb, and confidence in your own abilities (act Wednesday between 2:19-3:14 pm or 9:53-10:26 pm).

7/27/20181:14 am sun opposition Mars @ 4° LE/AQ 09’ = Avoid conflict, especially with men. You cannot enforce your own will now, so try to be patient in the face of obstruction and frustration. If you must confront others, do it 4:42-5:39 pm Thursday. It is, however, a good day to do a Scat ritual to get rid of any man in your life who is bringing you down (3:30-4:26 pm Thursday – see instructions below for 8/27).

8/07/201812:44 pm Uranus Stationary Retrograde @ 2° TA 34’ = May bring unexpected (serendipitous or calamitous) events which shake you out of your ordinary routines and doldrums. Good day to throw plans out the window and follow your impulses.

8/08/201810:06 pm Mercury inferior conjunction sun @ 16° LE 27’ = Something that was hidden comes into plain view, giving you deeper insight and understanding about a current problem or relationship. You realize that you must go it alone, make it on your own, not depend on or rely on other people. Decisive action on your part may be required to be true to yourself and hold your own (2:15-3:07 pm or 9:41-10:17 pm).

8/19/201812:25 am Mercury Stationary Direct @ 11° LE 32’ = A new departure or new outlook on your current affairs. You may get past a blind spot or something that was hindering you, or launch new projects or relationships which become important later on (Saturday between 11:57 am-12:46 pm or 7:44-8:23 pm). You are able to take things in stride, let go of a hang-up, lighten up and be joyous.

8/19/2018 – 3:45 am Jupiter trine Neptune @ 15° SC/PI 36’ = good week for all spiritual activities, praying / casting spells for illumination, etc., especially for people with planets in 16° of water signs (7:48-8:51 am or 3:32-4:37 pm Saturday). If you are not already channeling your spirit guides (or tutelary deities such as Jesus, Krishna, Buddha) via automatic writing, what are you waiting for? It’s easy, and it is your point of entry into the world of magic – of doing it instead of just thinking about it or wishing for it! Between 9:08 – 9:23 am on Friday the 17th light a white candle and follow the instructions posted at: http://www.dearbrutus.com/donjeronimo/channel.html

8/27/201810:07 am Mars Stationary Direct @ 28° CP 37’ = Intense involvements with other people (though not necessarily conflictive). You have to take a position, stand up for yourself, be willing to fully commit yourself. Good day to confront or to tell someone off or to do a Scat ritual to get rid of unwanted people or circumstances – particularly men. Between 9:47-10:06 am light a red candle, take a deep breath, and imagine yourself confronting the oppressive person or situation with cold detachment and indifference. Then throw your arms outward forcefully and decisively as if to cast off the oppressive person or situation. You can also jump up and down and shake your body vigorously to shake the person’s bad vibes off. You don’t visualize something bad happening to the person, but rather feel how happy and light you feel now that person is gone!
