Alright let’s get started, first I want to recognize that as of Sunday July 26 Mercury is out of his shadow, this means where he was retrograde he is now beyond those numbers and in new territory. This is a blessing for some of us so we can finally get some things moving forward and we can finalize what has been lingering for some time. While Mercury has been in the sign of Cancer we also have had two New Moons in that sign with the Sun moving through Cancer as well. A lot of family dynamics (Cancer) and emotional baggage has come to surface. You can see this everywhere you look and even in your own backyard. Emotions are running high for a lot of people. If you can let off steam a little bit at a time during this week that be better than the pot boiling over. I personally have experienced some family things that were a long time coming and so wonderful to witness, a togetherness I have been dreaming about for years. Just a reminder not all big emotional moments are stressful or bad, they can be so wonderful. Remember to stay open to that too when you listen in and read these words.
Monday the 27th we have Jupiter and Neptune in a sextile it is #2 out of 3 for the year. This is helping to smooth over the rough edges; I know I can hear you from here yelling at me “smooth over the rough edges are you kidding me have you watched the news”? My reply would be “yes I have but I limit it”. Jupiter and Neptune connecting the way they are is helping us in this way, many of us are getting lost in our illusions, hopefully meditating more, listening to music, playing in the water or binge-watching shows. This is Jupiter sextile Neptune; we do however need to be careful about overdoing our use of substances as that could get out of hand easily. Another thing this connection between Jupiter and Neptune can suggest is we’re not seeing the full truth and we’re being lied to. This is also one of the aspects that reflecting to us why there are so many conspiracy theories running wild right now. We also have Venus in Gemini connecting to Neptune and Jupiter, this will increase the level of communication and misunderstandings. But it can also raise the bar so you can see the truth and speak your truth.
The Moon in Scorpio all of Monday and Tuesday is asking us to take that deep dive into the inner realms of our emotions. At 6:00 PM ET on Monday night the 27th the Moon is opposite to Uranus so there can be sudden moments of enlightenment, recognition and realization. Where these planets are in your chart will give you more details.
We also have Mercury in Cancer making a square aspect to Mars in Aries today. The action of this connection comes through some form of stress and tension. The result may be you are finally able to speak up for yourself, we have found the courage. If you are able to let off some steam prior to this point in the day as I mentioned in the first paragraph then this transit will not feel difficult. Not everyone will have the benefit of this knowledge and we may see that around us.
Thursday the 30th Mercury continues to be active as he covers new ground. Once again with Mercury in the sign of Cancer we speak up were we are emotionally charged, we want to talk about home and family, and we want to know we are being heard. Early in the morning Mercury is in opposition to Jupiter in Capricorn when this happens sometimes, we or someone in our world will make a big deal out of nothing. Jupiter likes to make a big deal out of everything and does not discriminate if something is good or bad. Information will be coming through so quickly we may feel overloaded. It feels like feast or famine these days. But take what information you can, write down what comes through if you can’t use it all in that moment.
Today we also have Mercury trine to Neptune. This is a beautiful flow of energy from source. If you love following your intuition then today will feel wonderful especially if you know how to trust yourself. The flip side of this would be we are overwhelmed with too much information and we can’t sort it out. If you find yourself in that place of overwhelm stop and just breath, be present and realign. Find something creative to do so you can feel the flow and the overload will dissipate.
Saturday August 1st Mercury will be in opposition to Pluto. Pluto loves to take us into the deeper realms and the curious Mercury mind is happy to go there. We have an opportunity this week to work with and through any of that emotional baggage that is active for you right now. The connection to Pluto can help us transform old baggage and set us free
Throughout Friday Saturday and most of Sunday the Moon is in Capricorn. Best way we can use this is to do the things that make us feel solid, grounded, reliable and dependable.
Sunday August 2nd the Sun in Leo makes a square to Uranus in Taurus and that’s definitely a wild card day were anything goes. I am really happy the Moon is in Capricorn and conjunct to Saturn today so we have the choice to be crazy or grounded, (or a little bit of both).
*And on a side note I want to remind you that a forecast like this is general information. It is not meant as a reading for you personally. It is my interpretation, after 30 years of being an Astrologer, of what I see the planets are reflecting to us, in regard to what is happening here on earth.
For example, there are many places in the world that are in horrible disarray, fear, hate and violence, and then there are other places in the world that have beauty, peace, and harmony, love prevails. So many things are happening simultaneously and not everything impacts everybody the same way even though we are all in this pandemic.
We are all coming from our own perspective and that’s what makes us unique and different. If you’d like to have the specifics about what is going on in the world for you we need to have a conversation. Whenever you ready to have your own personal and private session you just let me know. In the meantime thank you for reading this forecast and watching the videos because you’re informing yourself of the potential happens for the week and that is smart; like checking the weather before leaving the house, you are prepared.
