Special note: Here’s wishing all of you the best in July. The emphasis this month is on the signs Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, and Leo. Whatever we have in our own charts, we also become these qualities temporarily. Aries takes action, Taurus calms, Gemini notices, Cancer cares, and Leo performs. Mars until the 5th and Jupiter are in Aries. This increases our energy, enthusiasm, and activity. We are young again. Mars squares Pluto and we should be circumspect to avoid trouble. Mars is in Taurus from the 5th and shows drive and/or stress about money and practical matters. Mars in the same sign with Uranus brings surprises into these matters. Mercury until the 5th, and Venus in weeks 1 and 2 are in Gemini; this increases are mental and verbal activity. Since Mercury and Venus are sharing a sign with Neptune, we should seek clarity. The Sun in weeks 1, 2, and 3 and Mercury in weeks 2 and 3, and Venus in weeks 3 and 4 are in Cancer which directs our attention to emotion and care giving. Squares with Jupiter may show us exaggerating.This is followed by oppositions to Pluto and trines to Neptune; we succeed in dealing with forces through insight and imagination. The Sun and Mercury in week 4 are in powerful, flashy, playful Leo and promote these qualities. Trines to Jupiter show optimism. Mercury opposes Saturn and squares Uranus later in the month and shows us to be smart but concerned. Saturn, is still in Aquarius for another year. It can bring difficulty to Aquarian things like: humanity, knowledge, friends, hope, and the future. It is important that we think, act, and behave in positive ways to counter this. This affects the world and us personally. Saturn can also promote drive and get us where we want to go. Uranus in Taurus until 2026 brings the unexpected in finances, and the original in art. For Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius dealing with the unexpected or disruptive is on tap. This will take good managerial skills and the ability to know what we can manage, and what we can’t. Resting, being one of the good guys, and not living on the edge are important. Saturn is squaring Uranus this year; this can bring unexpected trouble, and trouble with technical things. So we need to stay on top of things. Fortunately this square is weaker from March through July. Neptune is still in its long term stay in its own sign of altered states, Pisces. Meditation can help us do this in legal and safe ways.
Pluto is still in Capricorn and brings transformation to government and business.
A Full Moon in Capricorn on the 12th and the 13th contrasts private and public life.
A New Moon in Leo on the 28th, the 29th, and much of the 30th brings a new start in power.
Remember that new, full, and quarter moons are powerful times during the month. Actions taken at these times should be positive and well thought out. The quarter moons are in Libra on the 6th the 7th and in Aries 18th, 19th, and much of the 20th.
Days that look fairly harmonious this month are: 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10, 16, 17, 23, 24, 27, & 31. For really important events, it requires a deeper look. Part of the magic of Astrology is how much better things go when we start things on good days.
Extra special note: I’m recommending that people read Covey, Dyer, and Chopra during their birth month. They write about achieving success and happiness and this is what the Sun is about in our charts. During the birth month we have the opportunity to start a new cycle of success and these authors have great ideas on how to do it. For those who want to get in on the ground floor of understanding existence and self-improvement, C.C. Zain’s Church of Light books will make you an astrologer and a metaphysician. These books teach us that there is a supernatural dimension in and around us that makes life subtle and interesting. And that Astrology gives us helpful information in innumerable situations. And finally, that we have the power to change our lives through Astrology and by harmonizing our feelings and our thinking.
