August 1st at 11:27 EDT. The Fire Festival of Lughnasadh is associated with the Sun in Leo and

‘Tis not a thing Heaven has foreseen;
In formless silence the Poet dawns,
To call of Muse, the Poet forms.

A gardener of the endless soul,
Finely tuned tongue on endless roll.

Even if the particular degree of this square does not interact with your chart in a highly
significant way, the world around you will resonate with the square’s impact during the moment
of the full Moon. You can dance or shake with the motion reflected. As we watch inner and outer
events, we begin to learn the language of the stars in the way of our ancestors.
