The Monthly Forecast For July

Photo by Laura Parker

The key words for the sign Cancer are “ I Feel”. Cancer is a Cardinal Water sign. The symbol is the Crab, the ruling planet is the Moon. This month, there are some lovely aspects that we can all look forward to. Tuesday, 7/3 is a winner, with the Moon in Pisces making five beautiful aspects, forming a Grand Trine in the Water Element, where it Trines both the Sun in Cancer and Jupiter in Scorpio. This brings strength, optimism, and Sacred Law. At the same time, the Moon conjuncts to Neptune in Pisces, a very spiritual aspect. This is a wonderful day to receive, to meditate, and to visualize what you need.

7/7 is also good, as long as you slow down. The Moon in Aries trines Venus.  This adds creativity and beauty to everything. It then moves into Taurus, where it conjuncts Uranus, the planet of innovation, liberation, and change. Move forward on your dreams. 7/8 is very good, with the Sun in Cancer Trine to Neptune in Pisces, and the Moon in Taurus also sextile Neptune and the Sun. Magical and mystical.

The New Moon on 7/12 is a powerhouse. This is the first of two Eclipses this month. The Sun and Moon are conjunct in a New Moon, which offers opportunities for new beginnings. With this one, we have a Solar Eclipse, with both the Sun and Moon opposing Pluto. Wow. Pluto rules the Void, alchemy, transmutation, death and rebirth, endings and beginnings. It also rules the supernatural, organized crime, and intelligence agencies. This is fairly explosive. Watch the news. Since Jupiter, the Moon, and Neptune form a Grand Trine in Water at the same time, have faith ( Neptune) in Sacred Law ( Jupiter) prevailing. What are we ready to let go of? What old habit, pattern, or attitude needs to end? What are we ready to begin?

The 15th and 16th are both good. The Sun moves into Leo on the 22nd, another good day. Mercury goes retrograde again ( I know) on the 26th, but otherwise it’s a good day.

The second Eclipse of the month will be on 7/27. Hold onto your hats for this one. It’s a Full Moon, from Leo to Aquarius, with the Sun in fiery Leo opposing both the Moon AND Mars in Aquarius. Mars in an opposition can make people feel the fight or flight reflex. All of this is taking place in two Fixed signs. ( Stubborn). Slow down. Breathe. Decide not to engage unless absolutely necessary. If someone oversteps their boundaries, then by all means, stand up for yourself.

The month ends with two lovely days, the 30th and 31st, giving us all a chance to recover from that intense Full Moon. July will be eventful. Cancer is a nurturing sign. Take care of yourself. Rest. Play. Laugh. Love. I hope you have a wonderful month. Blessings, Judith
