July asks you to take the good with the bad and embrace the mixed bag of celestial energies that will take you on a rollercoaster throughout the month.
The month of July brings life-changing energies that will ask you to dance with them. Jupiter finally goes direct on the 10th of July, which means any treasure you have been mining for can be brought to the surface.
Hold onto this treasure, as it will see you through great impulses for change. The new moon on the 13th is a partial solar eclipse that is opposite the planet of power and control, Pluto.
At the end of the month, on the 26th, we will experience a total lunar eclipse conjunct a retrograde Mars. Universal instincts will be strong throughout July, and egos will be stripped, like in the story of the Emperor’s new clothes.
Finally, Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Leo on the 26th. Until early September, it is important to remember to listen and not assume anything.
But how will these energies personally impel you? This reading is for Aquarius sun sign, ascendant sign, or moon sign:
You may feel anchored to being in solitude, almost as though you are without permission to release yourself from a prison that you have created. Nevertheless, you notice a silver lining. A deep intimacy with a significant other is possible when the clutter and noise of the world are blotted out. Still, it will mean working through fears and inner demons. But at least there is not much to distract you.
When Jupiter goes direct
Any inner work you have been doing in order to achieve your life goals will begin to become a tangible reality. It is possible you will get a promotion or even become your own boss.
Power packed lunar action
New moon on the 13th: You intuitively sense how you should move forward in either current health issues or in dealing with your day job. It almost feels like your instincts and fears are temporarily on hold. Nevertheless, you do sense some kind of power struggle emerging from your subconscious. Potentially, this may reveal itself in certain obstabcles and blind-spots in your way.
Full moon on the 27th: A significant other appears to intuitively be in tune with you. Possibly, you feel impelled to move forward and commit more deeply. Nevertheless, you do find your very identity appears to reflect any instincts you have to hold back. Indeed, there is an energy in your being that is drawing you in reverse. Ultimately, if you take the opportunity, you can use it to your advantage.
Retrace your steps through the makeup of your personality. Events that have occurred to make you who you are may cause you to understand any misuse of energy that has caused you to function on ego, rather than authebnticity. Once you grasp authentbicity, your relationship will eventually move forward.
Mercury begins the second of its three annual retrogrades, on the 26th of July, and will last a few weeks. Therefore, try not to discuss entering into any new commitments such as marriage or a business partnership.
Instead, reminiscing with a lover, or reconnecting with a past love or business opportunity will be beneficial during this period. It is important to make sure you can eventually come to the commitment table from a place of authenticity, without ego and empty talk.
