The atmosphere crackles with potential. Even if you’re overwhelmed by the details of life, feeling like time itself is speeding up, a little voice inside whispers insistently: “Something’s coming…” It’s too soon to know exactly what that “something” is, but we can get a glimpse of things to come by looking to the heavens.
A total solar eclipse on July 11th occurs in the sign of Cancer. Cancer rules the home, hearth and all other things mom-and-apple-pie. Solar eclipses signify the beginning and endings of cycles; this is a good time to pick up your broom and clean house, literally or metaphorically.
The end of July, the planets are lining up for a tense “grand cross” that becomes exact at the beginning of August. When so many planets – in this case the Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Pluto — align in a tight formation, fireworks are definitely in the forecast.
The opening moves begin at the end of July. Saturn movies into Libra on July 21st, followed by Mars on July 29th, bringing renewed energy and pragmatism to all types of “I and thou” relationships. Many commitments will be either reinvigorated or severed as we all realign ourselves for the next chapter of the story.
Allow your beliefs to be transformed on July 24th when Jupiter squares Pluto and you may find new doors opening for you. The Full Moon in Aquarius on July 25th brings new light to your ideas and ideals; watch for a sign.
And the fifth and final Saturn opposition of Uranus becomes exact on July 26th, ending the series that first begin on Election Day 2008. If things were stuck in a debate over ideals vs. efficiency, try asking yourself: Is just doing something (however imperfect) better than sitting in a stalemate? What’s best for your long-term relationships? If you do, you might find the answer you’ve been looking for all along.
With all of these celestial alignments brewing, reducing stress is a must this month for everyone, but especially for those born between the 21st to the 26th of March, June, September and December. Remind yourself that what seems overwhelming at the moment may be a distant memory in a year: all things change.
