It’s a good day to collaborate and make progress one humble step at a time. Egotism will not serve you but bold confidence pays off as you make a clean break from energy wasters and refine details for long term objectives.

As Mars transitions into Virgo, the planet makes a separating opposition to Jupiter which retrograded back into Aquarius yesterday. Both Mars and Jupiter continue to square Ceres in Taurus in a rigid Fixed T-square, all positioned at the anaretic 29° mark in the sky. The Moon continues to wane in Aries after last weekend’s Full Moon.

This is inspiring energy for collaboration and working together with trusted alliances to achieve something greater than the sum of its parts. Inspired hard work with unwavering focus on details feels especially good now, even if progress is slower than preferred.

If on the wrong track, some may need to drastically cut something away or develop a whole new structure. Don’t be afraid to go back to ‘square one,’ if necessary. Changes may be messy and that’s okay.

What if you find yourself in the position of ‘The Lone Ranger’? If you look closely, you may find unusual alliances in unexpected places – such as those who blazed the trail before you but are no longer in human form. Their legacy of inspiration can be a strong form of support just the same as any other. But that’s just one example.

By now, you may have a fairly good idea of who is and is not worth the investment of your attention and energy. But if you don’t, it would be a good idea to get clear about that. Wasting energy on the wrong people will not feel good at all.

If you listened to deeper feelings at the Pisces Moon earlier this week, and made difficult but important relationship changes, you can rest assured you’re on the right track. Otherwise, resentment can set in as you give your power away – whether to your opponent or to wrong alliances alike.

It may be difficult to make a clean cut from people with past attachments; however, deep within, you know your unwavering focus is required for new objectives, if you’d like to achieve them.

Stress or paranoia around health issues can be a problem the next 6 weeks, unless you have a solid health routine established.

Watch for overly loud or vocal people with an agenda or fighting for a cause, as there are likely hidden personal issues driving them naively in the wrong direction. Ego goals simply won’t pan out. Consider trusting your authentic inspiration instead.

Obsessive distractions signal a lack of true inspiration. You can’t get genuine self-pride and life satisfaction from others because it comes from your own personal achievements. Look for alliances who are also self-established.


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: Mars opposite Jupiter Rx, Venus square the Nodes, Jupiter Rx in Aquarius until December 28, Waning Gibbous Moon in Aries
  • Thursday, July 29: Mars opposite Jupiter Rx, 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, Sun and 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.



Conscious Choices and Life Changes

After the year 2020 uprooted foundations and outdated material securities, 2021 is the year for exciting change, especially as it might concern your career or relocating to a new home. Multiple new beginnings and new cycles present opportunities for major structural change.

Final choices made by the end of the year establishes new life experiences for the long term – so choose wisely. You might not know exactly what’s ahead but that’s okay. Dare to follow your true heart and enjoy exciting new opportunities that come your way.
