Welcome to July and the hot mess that this month will be.
First we have a Chiron retrograde in Aries which is calling all of us to the stage to face what we have been covering up with love, light, and good intentions. Stop hiding behind the emotional veil of summer and take a good look at what is going on in your life on an everyday basis. Big decisions do have lasting effects but it’s our everyday actions, thoughts, and feelings that set the stage.
On July 9th Venus enters Virgo turning that show me Leo love into a discerning calculating question of “what value does my relationship have?”. Or the question you may already be asking yourself, “is it worth it?”. With the work we are doing in Chiron, Mars, and Aries, this is also a great time to evaluate your relationship with yourself. If you were to place a value on the time, energy, and support your give yourself would it suggest that you are priceless, affordable, or low value?
July 12th we have a partial solar eclipse new moon in Cancer that is sure to clear out some of the mess we have been enduring since winter. I’ll have a breakdown of the new moon in Cancer posted on Monday.
July 22nd the Sun enters Leo and it’s time to shine baby. Leo season is all about having the courage to be yourself, take center stage, and let the world hear your story. This may also feed the negative ego’s of some folks who feel that they deserve the spotlight but are not getting the attention they need. Give yourself attention! Chiron retrograde in Aries wants us to fuel our souls so we do not have to seek validation externally. Do you and the support will come. I mean it’s Leo season, there’s no way you’ll be ignored.
July 23rd is the start of our second Mercury retrograde of the year. This time Mercury is in Leo which calls us to communicate our desires and not take no for an answer. On the flip side, if you’ve been…pushing. Telling everybody that has ears what you want, what’s going wrong, what’s going right in your life please slow down. At times, Leo can be warm and inviting. Then there are other times when Leo’s seem to be bragging and egotistic. Find balance with your voice. This may be controversial but not everyone deserves your story. So choose wisely.
Finally this month closes out with a Total Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. This will balance out the expressiveness of Cancer season allowing us to take a step back from the deeply emotional past few months. I’ll have a full post on this in the next few days.
What are you looking forward to this month? I am super hyped for these eclipses. I know they will bring us closer to greatness.
