July starts off with some lovely aspects. The Moon in Scorpio on 7/3 forms a Grand Trine aspect, trining the Sun in nurturing Cancer and Neptune in sensitive Pisces. This is wonderful for setting intentions, as well as for dreaming big. The next powerful day is the Full Moon on 7/9. Hold on to your hats… This is another intense Full Moon. We have the Sun at 17 degrees of Cancer opposing the Moon AND Pluto at 17 degrees of Capricorn. Alchemy squared. Adding to that is radical Uranus in Aries squaring all of them, later in the day. There is a desire here for freedom at any cost, purging, transition, and change. July could bring big decisions for people, both personally and as part of a group.
A week later, on 7/16, we have another intense day, with the Moon in fiery Aries, this time conjunct to Uranus, which inclines to sudden unexpected developments, and more of a willingness to move forward. The Moon trines Saturn, the planet of wisdom, patience, and discipline. Good. We’ll need it. Because it squares the Sun, Mars, and Pluto at the same time. It’s as if what gets started on 7/9 gains further momentum on 7/16. Wow. Breathe. Slow down. No matter what the world is doing, we can find serenity within ourselves. Don’t engage. Observe.
7/18 is peaceful and beautiful, with Neptune, Pluto, the Sun, Venus, and Jupiter all making positive aspects, bringing a feeling of faith, hope, optimism, and love to uplift us.
The New Moon in Leo on the 23rd is also hopeful and optimistic.
July looks like a month of choices and decisions. It’s apt that July symbolizes summer, fireworks, picnics, independence, and freedom. It appears that fireworks will be the theme of the month. Watch for bombshell revelations in the news. We as a country are good at getting rid of dictators, and freeing ourselves from persecution and oppression. That’s more true than ever now.
This is a month of shedding things that don’t grow our souls, people, places, and things, as they say in AA. Embrace the changes. I have a sign that says ” Change is inevitable. Struggle is an option”. Cancer is a Water sign. In Chinese medicine 5 Element theory, the Water Element is about faith and trust. The limitless opportunities of the Void. Be Water. Go with the flow. Have a beautiful month.
