SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
This week some fundamental shifts are occurring in what we see and how energy is used. Both Mars, and then a few days later, the Sun will shift into Cancer. This could be touchy feelLy, but not likely as there is a strong square to erratic Uranus in Aries. We also lose the benefit of the Grand Trine in Fire by July 16th. What that will mean is a push for creating a better future without the full flow of grounding events to follow. This could be the start of the hardest part of the year for all contained in the web of life. Compounded with the heat of summer, tempers will flair just about anywhere. Give people lots of extra time and space if they not handling things well. Also watch your back in places that relate to water or fluids. Especially flammable fluids.
In the world of romance, Venus is trine to Jupiter for the next week and a half. Big things are in store for those in love. With both in earth signs, expect this to be a solid time to connect and do things that are foundational. So, this is your bright spot in the next several days! I hope you can find the energy to participate, even if it means just getting the short story of world events so you can connect with what makes the world go around, love in all its forms.
Friday, July 14th, brings a day where you could intuitively know what to say and do for someone in a crisis. Sometimes it is just the little things that matter. Most of us have had both good and bad times so we do relate to another’s suffering. Use this as a point for compassion. For a few more days we can navigate through some dicey waters of life and arrive safely. Another lesson over the next few days is to not be insistent on a specific outcome if an alternative will work also. Stubbornness will cause repercussions. Messages will be frequent and with the subtle information you need. Read between the lines. Moon in Pisces.
Saturday, July 15th, as the weekend unfolds, you should start to feel an exaggerated sense of conflict of what you feel, what is presented and what is the truth. It all starts to sink in just how far the ruse has gone. Somehow, with our insistence, a push to deal with reality is present. This relates to the big players in life. Facing a dysfunctional relationship is always hard. Convenience and personal agendas have to be called out on deception and ignoring what is happening. For the next week, expect more pressure to do the right thing and speak your truth. Moon in Pisces.
Sunday, July 16th, this is the last day of the Grand Trine in Fire. If there was motivation to get something pulled together, it is slipping away after today. On top of that the Moon is shifting into Aries and connecting with Uranus. With the Mars/Sun now in Cancer and tracking together, this could be an explosive day. Think fire and water. Let’s hope it is more like the volcano Pele oozing magma into the ocean and not something more explosive and damaging. Moon in Aries by mid-morning.
Monday, July 17th, as the day progresses, consider what is good in your life. The news could be heart wrenching, but if your immediate life is safe and secure, take that in with gratitude. I really think that yesterdays’ events, even if you are just hearing about them today, will be diminished by your immediate web of friends and family. Put your energy into where you can make a difference. Moon in Aries.
Tuesday, July 18th, the day will start out with a “can-do” energy. Roll with that while you can. There is so much more that is positive in our lives, especially when we make the effort to create community. In the bigger picture, there will be some subverting vibes trying to wear you down. The key is to consider what is an ideology and what make sense for the home front. Ideals have their way of inspiring us, but when they steal your strength, it is time to stay engaged and insist on what serves the best interest for as many as possible . Moon in Aries.
Wednesday, July 18th, yesterday’s lessons will be re-played today. Since you have had a chance to sleep on the situations, you can be wiser in your approach. Healing is possible if we can keep common sense. Moon in Aries until late afternoon.
Thursday, July 19th, Mercury is approaching the Draconian point of the North Node. Positive news will grace us for several days as the messenger of the sky finds its way out of heart wrenching Cancer (just at this moment) and into Leo. Wanting leadership? Wanting to be heard? Be sure to speak from the heart and not the ego. Moon in Taurus.
Blessings and peace,
