The 74th annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally… why I believe this could be one of the greatest runs of all time…
When most people think about astrology they think about their horoscopes in the back of a fashion magazine, but when you look into astrology as a map or a tool to see how specific energies are surrounding you, then you can get an idea of how certain cycles and themes may play out in your life. Being an astrologer, I love to put my “astro-detective” hat on and look back in history to see what planetary energies were playing out during certain events. Since we are in the middle of the 10-days of events surrounding the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally (8/1/14-8/10/14), I thought it would be a great opportunity to give you some really cool astro-history and why I believe this could be one of the greatest runs of all times.
Sturgis Motorcycle Rally was born on August 14, 1938. When I look back to see what was happening in the planets that day, I was surprised to see that Mars, the hot, fire-breathing planet, was in Leo at 14.44 degrees. Now, as of July 17, 2014, Jupiter, the planet of expansion and great “juju” has just entered Leo, until August 11, 2015. When you take Jupiter in Leo (transiting, as we speak) and place him in conjunction with the Mars-in-Leo energy that this rally was founded on, you get a “larger-than-life” celebration in 2014. I am going to go out on a limb and say, this could be a great financial year for the City of Sturgis, as Jupiter in Leo likes to live large.
I also see that Uranus, the planet of rebellion, radical change and self expression, is in conjunction with where the moon was transiting during the day Sturgis was born. The need for free expression, showing off and a strong competitive spirit will be the vibe throughout the events.
So, what will this mean for you? I thought I would give you some “astro-tools” for the road to help you make the most out of this amazing week.
The Fire signs Aries, Leo and Sagittarius will feel this energy the most. You may already be feeling a burst of energy the last few weeks, but as you enter Sturgis, South Dakota, you will get another burst of good vibes. You are probably ready to leave behind the emotional baggage from the last year. You may notice that you’re feeling especially bold and confident and ready to break out. You just have to remember you are not the only one on the road feeling that way, so proceed with caution. This week is going to light a long-overdue fire underneath you, so keep your engines running (oh, and don’t forget to check your oil).
The water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces: you may still have work on your minds. You have been behind the scenes working on strategic ideas for your life. In the age of the Internet, actually meeting someone or shaking hands is rare. But this week, with Sturgis in reach, you may find that sharing and networking your ideas surrounds you. This can also be a time where you reconnect with old friends or meet someone that changes your whole life. Use your intuition, water signs, and be prepared to come home with some interesting stories and possibly a new fated friend.
To my earth signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn, you are usually the most practical and prepared of the group. Don’t be surprised if you feel out of your comfort zone on this trip. Spiritual happenings will be everywhere. The earth signs usually like to control their emotions, but as you enter this week, a deep connection to the beauty of this earth, meeting strange people who share life-changing ideas with you, and capturing the more spiritual side of life is on the horizon. Go with the flow, earth signs, there’s more to life then work, work, work… this week can change your life in a way that you may least expect it.
I saved my air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius, for last. Like the fire signs, this energy is going to aspect your signs in a powerful way. Your mind may feel like it’s going a hundred miles an hour, taking in so many new and exciting experiences. The air signs are the social icons of the zodiac and can blend into any group. You will love the comradery and new friends. Just be careful what comes out of your mouth, you too, will be very bold. Networking, new life-long friends and a great time had by all a waits you. Remember to look up at the stars this week, there could be a message written just for you.
Have a great trip and ride safe,
