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. 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 Taurus sun sign, ascendant sign, or moon sign:
Less is more
You experience an extreme longing to express yourself creatively or romantically. Initially, this begins with an unexpected inspiration to be who you truly are. Furthermore, you may experience a feeling that what limits you from expanding your creative expression could actually provide “less is more” boundaries that increase creative expression.
Additionally, romantic and flirtatious conversations may evolve into something more serious and tangible. Also, you find that your creative expression is renewing ironically, through a crisis in faith. You can perceive the silver lining of a spiritual dilemma.
When Jupiter turns direct
A significant other may become a positive influence in your life. Together you feel optimistic about forming a more profound commitment to one another.
Power packed lunar action
The new moon on the 13th: Intuitive communication blocks any instinctive fears. Fears that have catalytically impelled you to not say what you truly mean. However, you may feel this is opposed by a powerful, and possibly ominous sense, from outside of the box of your current consciousness.
Full moon on the 27th: Your intuition about the security of your home and family come face to face with instincts holding you back from achieving your life goals. In turn, this may enable you to retrace steps via an egoless reaction to past energy misuse in this area of your life.
Mercury begins the second of its three annual retrogrades, on the 26th of July, and will last a few weeks. During this time, Taurus needs to double check all communications between family members.
Reminiscing and reconnecting with elderly relatives or researching your ancestry could bring to light valuable information about your life’s foundations, that you may have previously taken for granted or inadvertently overlooked.
