When the Moon transits the 7th House

MOON in the 7th House

When the Moon Transits the 7th house issues of trust can surface, knowing who to trust.  We can also be sensitive to the moods of others–it is, after all, the house of others, any others, including but not exclusive to partners.  The 7th relates to intimacy and connections with others so at the time of the month that the Moon moves through your 7th house you may take a risk to initiate intimacy on some level.  For example, I wrote to a client/friend this week about something very personal which is unusual for me to do (unless I trust them and also know them well).  I realize that the connection to Luna in the relationship house supported my doing that.

We can project like crazy and accept the projections of others when the Moon connects in here—this house is ruled by Venus and Libra and they are the queens of projection.

We are going to naturally be seeking harmony and balance with others when the Moon passes here because the Moon in us wants to feel happy and secure and harmony and balance support that serenity,

We may be indecisive about how we feel about things–the Libra quality with the Moon here in the 7th will enable you to feel both sides and the paradox making decisions about feelings somewhat difficult.  For example, “How do I REALLY feel?”

We can also realize how dependent we are upon others when the Moon transits here–emotional realizations come to the forefront about how we “can’t do it alone” and how we need others.

Any partnerships that seem to be working can be very satisfying to our feelings of security at this time.  We become more aware of one-on-one relationships too and feel a deeper emotional connection to our traveling companions on our life path.

We will tend to feel the “pathos” of others–feel empathy for others easily.  Recently as the Moon was leaving my 7th house I was overwhelmed with the feeling of empathy for others and made this tweet post:  “Feeling great compassion for the human condition. I want to give ALL in this world a hug!” –that’s a pretty good example of a 7th house lunar transit expressing.

At this time we are more likely than at any other time of the month to be able to feel what it’s like to be the other person–able to see life through the eyes of another.

The Moon is about our ability to “feel” and to respond emotionally.  Realizing what other people ‘are’ and what they ‘are not’ is essential to our happiness and when Luna moves through this area of life experience we get a good feel for that.

We may find also that a 7th house transit helps us ‘clear the air’ in relationships.

Recently I found out that a prior life partner was undergoing a medical procedures of his heart–my X-husband of 20 years and the father of my three daughters.  This is happening just when the Moon is transiting my 7th house this month.  I found myself revisiting our past, our marriage, our good times and bad and certainly feeling emotional on that level.  And certainly right on time in alignment with Luna in my 7th.  (By the way, the cusp of my 7th house is Aquarius and that’s his Sun Sign–and that’s typical or astrologically normal that the cusp of the 7th describes the partners one connects with.)

Also,  I’ve been able to spend quality one-on-one time with each of my family members as the Moon has moved through the 7th house which is another archetype of a 7th house Lunar transit–sometimes we all get so busy this doesn’t happen.  I’m going to track Luna more frequently through my houses and see what may happen consistently.

Some call the 7th house the house of open enemies and I did have a taste of that the other day when something was stolen which brings in that first line about issues of  knowing who to trust that  can crop up with a 7th house transit.

See you in the 8th house.  So far my x-husband is doing well but still undergoes other procedures over the upcoming days.

(By the way, the Moon is FULL now and in Pisces as it moves into my 8th house)

Being Incepted by Inception – A Consciousness Expanding Movie

 Being Incepted With Inception

 A Consciousness Expanding Movie

 What is real? That question is right down my alley and hits me right where I live!  I already knew that I would love this movie even before I watched it.  That’s because I’d heard that it had to do with levels of mind, levels of reality, and specifically, the dream state.

[Spoiler Warning:  if you haven’t seen the movie yet, maybe you best read this post afterwards.  Although I don’t think anything you read here will spoil the ending or even the plot, better to say this than not.  I’m trying to keep my karma record clean.  🙂 ]

 Movies like Inception and The Matrix and Contact and When Dreams May Come and Defending Your Life (just to name a few) all carry that same theme of being consciousness-expanding, seed-planting metaphysical and spiritual gems!

I write (email, blog, newsletter, web articles) frequently about the nature of reality, mind control, consciousness expansion, the subconscious, awareness,  inspiration as well as “projections”.  And although my meaning/understanding of projections is not the same (exactly) as how they are portrayed in the movie, nevertheless there’s something positive to be said about the possible afterthought benefits of the movie Inception.   This is true regarding “projections” along with the other mind-bending questions that the movie supposes. 

Thinking about the subconscious, various levels of reality (dream states) versus memories and the Creator Mind are all conscious contemplations that this movie would stimulate in folks.  In some of them, at least.

That would depend on how someone processes life generally I suppose.  There are plenty of those who, like me, look for messages and insights everywhere—movies included!  And sometimes, movies especially! And we, therefore, tend to think about the movies that we see long afterwards.

Others, of course, will watch a movie commenting on the action scenes and special effects, relating to it in those ways (only)—and this movie has plenty of action and effect!  Don’t get me wrong.   It’s just that this group of individuals to which I now refer will typically walk away from the theatre or from the at-home DVD player and never give it another thought—not consciously.   Ah-ha!  That’s the power of a movie; because, despite that, they have been affected anyway—they have been incepted!  Activated without conscious realization, of course!  After all, a-seed- is-a seed and one that is placed into a depth where it isn’t consciously realized… well, it’s Inception!

 An idea, an inspiration on deep, deep levels that manifests and changes one’s reality–when a movie can do that, it’s a good one in my book!  And this one’s got that potential.

 Let me pose this question to you.  Do you agree that this is how the soul itself (and spirit guides—if you accept that language-ing) or higher mind (call it what you will) plants seeds of inception in our mind in our dream state or during meditation?

I haven’t seen the other Academy Award nominated movies—Inception was the only one that I’d heard about that was of any personal interest.  I’d give it my own academy award for best movie, best actor, best special effects, production and all the rest if I could!  Can you tell that I totally loved this movie and highly recommend it?  Besides, you know it’s a good flick if Leonardo DiCaprio is part of it—totally awesome actor in my humble opinion. 

Even though I’m not a drinker per se, here’s a toast to Leonardo DiCaprio and to Inception et al (great work!) for the many conversations about the nature of reality that this movie must have stimulated.

And while I’m at it, here’s another toast for those necessary times that we’ve all experienced when we, too, have received one of those “kick’s” that knocked us off-balance, awakening us to higher levels! 

Here is a tweet that I wrote earlier this week:  Regarding life as a dream today… life, death, waking, sleeping–it’s all a dream…every situation is a passing memory.

What’s real?  And speaking of quotes, here’s an apropos one from Ram Dass:

It’s all real AND it’s all illusory: that’s Awareness!
