We start off Monday July 13th finishing up what was started Sunday the 12th. The Moon in the late degrees of Aries will connect with Pluto and Saturn in the morning before heading into Taurus early afternoon. These planetary movements this morning along with a stationary Mercury will intensify our emotions and may even activate the thing you are most insecure about at this point in time. On the flip side of this if you are feeling insecure then that could also be the emotional motivation you need to act. Aries energy will dominate for many months to come and we always have a choice on how to use it. By being courageous and acting when we feel the time is right or by fighting and through anger and fear instead of productive action.
The Moon will enter Taurus at 1:34 PM ET Monday and we should be able to feel the solid groundedness of the Taurus Moon quickly, if you don’t feel it then I recommend you create that feeling of being solid and sure of yourself at that time because it won’t last long. Tuesday’s transits will stir things up just a bit.
Tuesday July 14th with the Moon feeling comfortable and grounded in her 2nd favorite sign we also have her making her monthly connection to the planet of surprises, freedom, innovation and not playing by rules Uranus. That happens at 10:14 AM ET so put on your thinking cap and do some brain storming. Know you are grounded but leave room for innovation.
We also have the Sun opposite to Jupiter at 22 degrees of Cancer/Capricorn, the same Capricorn degree we had Saturn and Pluto conjunct at back in January along with an eclipse, markers like this have meaning and this one says things that begun back in that time frame are coming back for another visit. If you recall this is when the news of Covid was just coming out and we were told it was nothing. Jupiter and Pluto will conjunct at this degree as well in mid November, this is why I have been saying all along that the summer would be very active with new cases and information and so will November. Three big points in the calendar year, January, Now/July, and November, when we as a collective can make different choices that move humanity along a better path. On the personal level the energy is the same, making choices now that will move you along your path.
We also have Mars in Aries conjunct to the asteroid Chiron on Tuesday; here are a few of the many ways this conjunction can play out. Old wounds around not being heard or seen are triggered, an area of your life that is wounded may need attention now so healing can begin. It goes much deeper than just this but for now I want to talk about more of the week.
Wednesday July 15th the Taurus Moon will make easy aspects to the planets that are in Capricorn and that means all day we have the ability to feel grounded and driven, ambitious, self-confident, motivated and successful. With the Sun opposite Pluto today we are also being made aware of any power struggles that may be going on under the surface as they are rising now. This could be personal, maybe you and your boss have something to figure out, or we could just see it in politics and government around us, that’s pretty likely.
With the Moon in the sign of Gemini July 16, 17 and early in the morning on Saturday the 18th there are numerous opportunities to talk to those you need to talk to, write down things that you can’t say so you can get it out, or have easy carefree dialogue with someone. The Moon in Gemini just wants to talk, gather information, flirt and keep moving.
As of Friday morning July 17th the Moon is also in its balsamic phase, this is last phase before the New Moon which is coming up on Monday the 20th. So while you’re having many conversations with others, easy or hard, you could also be tying up loose ends, sifting and sorting through information, keeping what’s important and doing your best to release what is no longer useful.
Another thing to consider, you may be having a conversation with yourself too. Who doesn’t have a whole dialogue in their head, thinking about things from the past? You may not even have to have a conversation with somebody else it could be with yourself, the critical self or the higher self……….. who would you like to have a conversation with?
Saturday July 18th at 10:24 AM ET the Moon enters Cancer but is still in the balsamic phase until the New Moon on Monday the 20th at 1:33 PM ET.
Saturday and Sunday will be a time to tie up loose ends in regard to any family matter that is important to you right now, also take some time out for self-care as we approach the New Moon. Be gentle with yourself and careful when engaging with those you know want to pick a fight. I say this because this Cancer Moon is also squaring off with Mars in Aries which can be quite a hot head at times.
Up next is the second New Moon is Cancer this Summer. It happens most every year when one of the signs either has two New Moons back to back in the same sign or two Full Moons same sign back to back. I will talk about this more next week.
