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.
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 Sagittarius sun sign, ascendant sign, or moon sign:
At the beginning of the month, you gain most of your optimism from time spent in hibernation and self-care. Digging deep for inner treasures, and strengthening intimacy with a significant other, as well as securing your life’s foundations.
Time spent in solitude practicing mindfulness and meditation will be beneficial, and you will feel yourself transcend barriers of consciousness. However, try not to move too fast and get lost.
Later in the month, spend time on regrouping and recharging. Consequently, this will give you an opportunity to reignite your passion to follow your life goals.
When Jupiter goes direct
Your inner battery will start to become fully charged, and you will feel yourself looking at the world in a whole new light. However, it is not time to throw your pearls before the swine. Spending time crystalizing this positive energy, like a squirrel storing nuts for the winter, will pay magnificent dividends in the years to come.
Power packed lunar action
New Moon on the 13th: Your intuition helps you move through some of your instinctual fears about either deepening intimacy with a partner or receiving financial aid from an outside source. However, you do feel as though your wrestle with power struggles over value systems and have to work through your desire to be self-sufficient and materially independent.
Full Moon on the 27th: You intuitively seek to expand your consciousness. Indeed, you are especially seeking to set out on a real-life adventure to somewhere exotic. Ultimately you wish to gain a deeper understanding of the world outside of your box. Still, you find yourself reflecting on your instincts and fears over basic building blocks of your understanding. But it is these that could create a ladder of escape.
Maybe you feel as though taking even local journeys is difficult. Nevertheless, sometimes you have to bend your slingshot backward in order to hurtle yourself further in the direction you wish to go. Utilize the tugging energy you feel. Don’t fight against it. Retrace your steps to the place where you first met obstacles. Ultimately, you will find that it is probably located somewhere in a basic misunderstanding you are holding on to.
For the month of July, accumulate and record any new and foreign information that you acquire. For you to truly expand your consciousness in a permanent way, you can utilize the upcoming Mercury retrograde on the 26th to engrave this new information into your soul and psyche.
Trying to expand your knowledge and consciousness between then and early September could see you fall into confusion and disillusionment in the long run. Instead, rethink the new experiences and wisdom you have gained during July. Relearn it like a child in school learning times tables. This will create a tremendously strong launchpad from which you will ultimately move to other levels in the future.
