SIDEREAL WESTERN ASTROLOGY
A number of events will happen this week. first of which is a double Grand Trine in Air and Fire. So, in regular terms that means that higher thinking and communications will have inspiration from the unexpected areas of life. (Sun, Jupiter and Neptune in Air signs) (Venus, Uranus and Pluto/Saturn in Fire). So this is how we view ourselves inside the collective mind. This will run from July 8th through 16th. With an opposition with Pluto, the old change master, calling us to do better but this might be a struggle to see through the smoke and mirrors of the past. Overall, in our everyday lives, a lot of good things can happen if you keep your center of gravity when faced with anything offensive. Be that stabilizing point!
The other aspect this week is another eclipse period. The evening of July 12th is a partial solar eclipse. Obviously, it will not be seen here in the USA, but it is a harbinger of duplicity. If you are trying to sort out some sort of enigma, organize your facts in columns so you can decide later what it all means. Don’t make decisions now as a lot of information is being thrown out into the air waves. A lot of what is communicated will never get done. Be aware of that potential. That is when you ask for details of procedure. Most of the week, Mercury will be hindered expect for the 10th. That has a simple triad happening. But the opposition to Mars (our ability to get stuff done) is still hindering life. This will be the course until the full moon and total lunar eclipse on July 27th. But don’t expect much even then as Mercury will go Retrograde on July 25th just to make the facts even harder to sort out. Could seem like the repressive aspects of life are getting the upper hand. Stay vigilant and question, question, question everything. Facts do matter. Now you could just bury your head for a while, or you could step back, observe things from a dispassionate position, and take a wider look at why things are as they are. You certainly will have enough random bits of info to consider.
As for romance, Venus will soon start its journey in Leo July 5th. This is a time to keep love light and adventuresome. Also, a very good time for those who have been in their shells lately to come out and show some affection and appreciation. Dance this month when the opportunity arrives. A lot of what is happening is going on whether we are watching or not. Enjoy the warm evenings, catch a few fire flies and have some outdoor campfires. Hikes and trips to the woods are favored this phase of Venus in Leo.
Friday, July 6th, is a good time for lovers to get to the heart of what is bubbling up into consciousness. Sensitivity towards those you love will be well received right now. That Grand Square has a couple more days to bind you into a situation, but the light-hearted shift of Venus into Leo will give all of us a lift. There are even indications that how you feel about your nemesis could find some clarity as compassion leads to more understanding. As the evening news opens, a new spectacle or flaming arrow of confusion may be headed your way. Take it in stride with the others. Moon in Pisces.
Saturday, July 7th, I am going out on a limb here and say that a new sex scandal may fill the news. Depending on who it relates, it is just another voyage into the dark shadow of the human psyche which is getting coverage. Remember, with the Chiron retrograde, deep secrets come up into the conscious and test our resolve to deal with everything. If you can keep up, the end game is initiation into a higher state of consciousness... or something else to poke fun. Scandal or new source of ridicule is in today’s offerings. I am rooting for seeing someone’s vacation home video, if you get my drift. The Moon will be aspecting the old trickster Uranus in Aries today.
Sunday, July 8th, with the things that seem to go wrong, it is a venue to transform into something rather spectacular. The double Grand Trine starts today with some detractors, just because nothing is all easy, but enough charm on the moving pieces that you can pull off something rather miraculous. Start the day out with a plan and go for it! Moon in Aries.
Monday, July 9th, the big test of the day is things that are best left in the past will seem to stubbornly demand more attention. Concerted efforts will be necessary to make yourself move in the right direction. Probably means people did not catch enough sleep from a busy holiday and weekend. Do your due diligence and you will be rewarded with success. Moon in Taurus.
Tuesday, July 10th, information and searches flow like water. Getting to the heart of the matter is easier when details come to the surface. Do as much research as you can stand to do today as difficulties most likely will return tomorrow. Overcome your anxiety about calling people and get things done faster. A lot is moving quickly and the diligent are rewarded! After today, try not to sign any documents until after the Mercury retrograde next month. because so much is coming out everyday now that you want a fully informed consent before you sign. Moon in Taurus.
Wednesday, July 11th, some minor issues with annoyances a partner may exhibit. Keep it all in perspective and find a way to constructively deal with it. Still a good time to find out why because our ability to heal ourselves is limited for a while and another perspective can be very helpful. Reach out with concern and constructive criticism or critique. Lots going on right now, so stay rested. There is a good chance that sleep will be plagued with random thoughts and conflicts. Return to the healthy winding down routine before bed so you can ease into sleep. Moon in Gemini.
Thursday, July 12th, stresses on constructive habit changes is paramount today. If it causes pain, deal with it, in a sane way. Avoid bad habits when you get stressed. Sleep will be plagued during this New Moon solar eclipse. Tulsa time has it about regular bedtime, so keep to your nightly healthy routine. You cannot afford to be battling monkey mind all night and still face a challenging and productive cycle happening right now. Moon in Gemini.
