Magical Times for July & August 2019

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.

Moon-Jupiter conjunctions: best times to initiate (or pray / cast spells for) healing OR to move / travel (time of leaving home or takeoff): 7/13/2019 between 1:07-2:03 pm; 8/09/2019 between 4:32-5:25 pm.

7/07/2019 – 7:14 pm Mercury Stationary Retrograde @ 4°LE28’ = 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. Good day to address intransigent people or tackle intractable problems (approach them between 4:47-5:46 pm).

7/09/2019 – 1:08 pm Sun Opposition Saturn (conjunct Nodes) @ 17°CN/CP13’ = This brings conflict, frustration, karmic payment; however it is a good time to call something quits, or make prayers or cast spells to banish negative people or situations. At exactly 1:00 pm in NYC (12:48 pm Boston; 1:05 pm Philly) light a black candle, take a deep breath, and throw your arms outward forcefully and decisively as if to cast off the oppressive person or situation. You don’t visualize something bad happening to the person, but rather see how happy and light you feel now that person is gone or that situation is behind you!

7/14/201910:51 am Sun Opposition Pluto @ 21°CN/CP53’ = 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) Saturday between 5:47-6:58 pm.

7/17/20191:35 am Venus Opposition Saturn @ 16°CN/CP40’ = Conflict, disappointment, separation, or betrayal in an intimate relationship. Good day to do a Scat ritual to get rid of a lover who has outlived his or her usefulness: on Tuesday between 8:24-8:58 pm light a black candle and imagine your ex is standing right in front of you and telling you that they've decided that they've had enough of you. Don't feel rancor; feel relief. It’s important that you don’t do this spell in a mood of anger, particularly if your ex is a vampire who is sucking your energy by provoking your anger. You have to call it quits in the spell – not take pleasure when they get their comeuppance (as you do in normal daydreaming). Then imagine taking your erstwhile lover’s hands in both of your own; look him or her squarely in the eye; and say in your own words and using your own sentiments, “It’s had its good times, hasn’t it? But now it’s time we each went our own way.” Then wishing him or her the best of luck in their future journey, turn around, wipe your hands of them, walk away and don’t look back.

7/21/20194:32 am Venus Opposition Pluto @ 21°CN/CP44’ = Intimate or family matters may come to some kind of a head. There may be some intense, obsessive feelings in the air which need to be brought out into the open and addressed consciously (between 7:08-8:07 pm Saturday night).

7/21/20198:34 am Mercury Inferior Conjunction Sun @ 28°CN29’ = Something that was hidden comes into plain view, giving you deeper insight and understanding about a current problem or relationship. Decisive action on your part may be required to be true to yourself and hold your own (Saturday between 8:19-8:54 pm).

7/31/201911:58 pm Mercury Stationary Direct @ 23°CN57’ = You are able to take things in stride, let go of a hang-up, lighten up and be joyous. Reason with other people between 2:18-3:11 pm.

8/11/20199:40 am Jupiter Stationary Direct @ 14°SG30’ = 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 3:56 pm on Saturday in NYC (3:49 pm Boston; 3:58 pm Philly) light a green candle, take a deep breath, and vigorously shake your body to shake off all your money worries. Imagine that you have plenty of money for all your needs and never need to worry about money ever again! (It’s important that you see yourself as being a conduit for money to help others, rather than it all stops with you).

8/11/201910:23 pm Uranus Stationary Retrograde @ 6°TA37’ = 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.

8/14/20192:07 am Venus Superior Conjunction Sun @ 21°LE11’ = Brings up issues of intimacy, self-worth, relations with others generally. You stand up for yourself or reach out to fulfill your own desires. Good day to cast a love spell: on Tuesday between 4:29-5:21 pm light a pink candle and imagine that you are right there in front of your beloved (or if you don’t have a beloved, a beautiful stranger). Look him or her directly in the eyes; take his or her hands in yours; and say everything that is in your heart. Then listen to what he or she has to say; let the thing flow as it will. Then embrace and kiss as if it were really happening right now, and feel yourself filled with joy and happiness! Then with a sigh, squeeze their hands, wish them well, and let them go.

8/24/20191:05 pm Venus Conjunct Mars @ 4°VI08’ = There may be a romantic attraction or attachment, or an enjoyable time with one’s present significant other, or just a member of the opposite sex. Good to ask someone out for a date or to cast a love spell (between 10:51-11:38 am; follow instructions given for August 14th).
