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 Libra sun sign, ascendant sign, or moon sign:
For the month of July, you may feel particularly more indecisive than usual, almost to the point where you not only don’t know what you want, but you want a break from wanting! Possibly, you are feeling shaken up by unpredictable life cycle events that have cropped up unexpectedly.
Additionally, you feel very anchored to the home, and it could be that routine is your best bet for the time being, despite any power struggles with family members.
You may finally see an improvement in your material and financial resources starting from around the 9th of July. Many of these could be resources you already had, which you had previously taken for granted. You can now bring them into the light of day and take full advantage of them.
Power packed lunar action
New moon on the 13th: Most of your instinctive fears are removed as you intuitively seek to move forward in the area of your life associated with your future goals and public presence. However, this does not come without a reflection of external power struggles at home and with relatives.
Full moon on the 27th: Your intuition is to seek out the company and camaraderie of friends and community. However, you will find this causes you to come face to face with your instinctive fears about your creative expression.
However, there is an energy available that is worth not fighting, despite it seems to be dragging you backward. If you allow this energy to impel you to retrace your steps, you can find an egoless way to express your creativity. Ultimately, you can strip away any prior inauthenticity and offer more pure gifts.
Mercury begins the second of its three annual retrogrades, on the 26th of July, and will last a few weeks. Throughout all of July, try to keep a track record on file of all communications you have between friends and community members. You will have to watch your words carefully when communicating with large groups.
Be careful what you put online and be careful how you interpret what others say in settings such as social media. Remember that you can’t see body language or tone of voice in the written text. By early September, clarity in these areas will return. Ultimately, you will feel relieved if you just force yourself to stay out of any community controversy during this upcoming period of time.
