It’s a great day to take your creative inspiration and hard work to a whole new level. Rely on intuition to take a bold, yet calculated risk. Extreme stress, distractions, or big talk may signal a lack of confidence in choices made.

The Waning Pisces Moon conjuncts Neptune Rx and sextiles Pluto Rx. However, Mercury takes the show with its multiple aspects to the asteroids and a quincunx to Jupiter Rx, in which both shift into a new sign of detriment. As Mercury transitions into creative, playful Leo, Jupiter retrogrades back into collaborative Aquarius along with hard working Saturn Rx.

This whole week really comes down to: How confident are you in the choices you made?

As pressure descends, people will either use challenges as stepping stones, or run back to false securities of the past which may lead to unnecessary fears, conflict, or big talk and no action.

If you aren’t busy with your own effortless hard work,’ it’s easy to get lost in illusions of the mind or memories of the past resulting in self-doubt or conflict.

But the alternative may require some bold moves. You may need to burn some bridges or remove clutter and distractions, or extra weight…. Drastically clear out old patterns or groups of the past – or just close all of those tabs – to get unstuck, feel your natural inspiration, and stay focused.

Let go in order to flow.

However, these bold risks can only work if you possess the intuitive confidence necessary to take them in the first place, as well as carry you all the way through.


Reality Checks or Major Achievement

July 26 – August 1, 2021

  • Monday, July 26: Waning Moon in Pisces
  • Tuesday, July 27: Mercury in Leo until August 11, Mercury quincunx Jupiter Rx
  • Wednesday, July 28: Jupiter Rx in Aquarius until December 28, Waning Gibbous Moon in Aries
  • Thursday, July 29: Mars opposite Jupiter Rx, Venus square the Nodes, Mars in Virgo
  • Friday, July 30: No Major Aspects
  • Saturday, July 31: Last Quarter Moon in Taurus (square Saturn Rx)
  • Sunday, August 1: Sun conjunct Mercury, Mercury opposite Saturn Rx

Reality checks continue this week with sharp realizations or finally acknowledging inconvenient truths. It can be a rough week for some or a highly rewarding week for others – depending on your level of integrity and unwavering commitment.

Three major planets change signs this week marking major energy shifts in the collective or your own life. With a Mars opposition to Jupiter Rx and a Mercury opposition to Saturn Rx, you might notice more external conflict than usual – or relentless distractions from people and agendas that only use you or drain you.

Thursday may be a particularly upsetting day if you’ve been wasting your energy on the wrong people or life choices.

In the humble background, Venus in Virgo continues to strive for high quality production with high quality people. Clearing out the clutter of people, resources, or health choices not worth their weight allows you to focus on what truly satisfies and keeps you happy, healthy, and secure.

You can’t expect to hit your target unless you have unwavering focus and you can’t stay focused unless you’re confident and inspired about your objective.

Just be sure to burn the RIGHT bridges while preserving valuable alliances.

If you can tenaciously maintain your standards AND up your game, it can be a powerful week to accomplish goals you were unable to previously achieve.


July 2021

Moving Into The Unknown With Confidence, Or Lack Thereof

The beginning of the month starts with some powerful oppositions and square aspects which can feel tense. Stress is due to trying to move forward while still holding on to old patterns or relationships of the past.

Staying focused on a SINGULAR task or objective allows you to channel powerful energies into a worthwhile achievement. Otherwise, energies get wasted on pointless drama or distractions.

Old securities may start to crumble on July 4 when the Sun in Cancer squares Chiron, and that can feel upsetting; however, you can use painful issues as inspiration to release false securities, then establish new securities in your life that are more reliable.

Venus takes over the spotlight from Mars July 6 – 11 as Mercury squares Neptune Rx. People will either be actively developing their life passion, or lost in a FANTASY.

Make sure you’re on the right track because Mercury takes center stage July 11 while Jupiter and Neptune continue to retrograde in Pisces. You may either feel healthy optimism while accomplishing a grounded objective… or be caught in a GRAND DELUSION.

Around mid-month it will be easier (not so scary) to release the past and move into the unknown.

However, July 15 – 23 may feel unsettling unless you allow your perspective to be solidified or EVOLVE.

After the Sun positions itself in Leo on July 22 followed by an Aquarius Full Moon, you may feel a powerful shift in energy, allowing you to open up to others and expand into the future – as long as you’re confident in your own choices and perspective.

The challenge this month is to accept the UNIQUE paths of others without feeling threatened by differences in relationships. You can accept different choices of others, because they will either reinforce your own solid choices or expose cracks in your choices which need to evolve or mature. This is really the key to the whole month.

You know you’re making the right choices if you can stay steady and focused on your OWN tangible action which leads to tangible results and genuine self-pride.

By the 28th, you may be feeling more confident and capable OR feel locked in self-doubt and uncertainty. It all depends on how well you did on the test of your personal choices. You can continue to enjoy your solid, grounded choices, or make changes so that you CAN.
