  • Sun in Cancer 25° 20′
  • First Quarter Moon in Libra and Waxing Moon in Scorpio, VOC 11:03am July 17 – 6:38pm July 17 UTC
  • Prominent Spheres: Sun and Moon
  • Prominent Mode: Mutable
  • Prominent Element: Water
  • Prominent Aspect: Sextile
  • Retrogrades: Jupiter Rx, Saturn Rx, Neptune Rx, Pluto Rx, Chiron Rx, Juno Rx, Pallas Rx
  • Grand Earth Trine
  • Yod Apex: Venus, Mars in Leo
  • Sun opposite Pluto Rx

It’s a good day to accept mistakes and differences and broaden your understanding – yet continue to make vital changes. Look for rare, trusted alliances and bravely clear the deck to lighten up and soar.

The First Quarter Moon and mutable energies need change, a Void-of-Course Moon needs rest, and a Scorpio Moon in league with the Sun opposite Pluto Rx and prominent Water energy is pushing for an internal transformation through deep emotion or, for some, a crisis.

But things are not as bad as they might seem. Ungrounded fears can keep you stuck in old behavior patterns, missing an opportunity to soar to new heights of inspired work as well as secure authentic, trusted relationships.

Still, even if you miss this opportunity to make a major personal shift through unconditional acceptance AND decisive decluttering… life is still not as bad as it might seem.

Perhaps even in a dark low, you get tiny glimpses of joy and happiness. These little lights are there to guide your way. No matter what happens, everything will be okay.


Final Release

July 12 – July 18, 2021

  • Monday, July 12: Mercury trine Jupiter Rx
  • Tuesday, July 13: Moon in Virgo, Venus conjunct Mars
  • Wednesday, July 14: No major aspects
  • Thursday, July 15: Chiron stations Retrograde, Sun trine Neptune Rx, Moon in Libra
  • Friday, July 16: Venus quincunx Neptune Rx

  • Sunday, July 18: Venus quincunx Pluto Rx, Mercury quincunx Saturn Rx, Mars quincunx Neptune Rx

It’s a powerful week with opportunities to experience a major life achievement – as long as you’re already grounded and working hard with unwavering confidence in your objective.

For others, significant effort may be required to end a self-defeating habit that keeps you blocked or creates unnecessary problems or suffering.

Early in the week, you might experience profound clarity or joy, although some will still be stuck in grand delusions, especially if it involves desires for fame.

This week shows beneficial aspects or slight challenges to retrograde planets, especially Pluto Rx and Neptune Rx. Chiron also stations retrograde. This week sets off a long series of minor quincunx aspects which, along with subdued retrograde forces, makes for…

a relatively CALM week.

However, the weekend may witness a crisis for those stuck in manipulation, control issues, or envy – especially for those unable to release that aforementioned old pattern.

Simple ignorance or misunderstanding can also create unnecessary emotional drama.

Otherwise, it’s an excellent week to make a final release of the old and boldly step into the new with steady, yet inspired action. This is where true, lasting joy resides – especially through challenges.


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
