July 2020 Astrological Forecast
Mercury Moves Direct in Cancer (July 12th)
You might have been feeling a little scatterbrained and sloppy at times during the month of June and into the beginning of July. Mercury moves direct which helps bring ease to your thinking process and communication skills. Your empathic energies are heightened in the sign of cancer. Notice what your internal needs are and communicate them outwardly with those you love.
Mars Retrograde- Aries (6 Months) From now to January 6, 2021.
Mars in Aries is in it’s home sign. It will be moving back and forth in a square with Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn. This energy will re-activate an intensify energy that we first started experiencing in the spring of 2020. Jupiter will expand Mars’ energy and create a feeling of wanting to go all in. Although Saturn will be holding our energy back encouraging us to be patient, don’t move too fast into something new. We can feel fired up about something to move forward with and then have to take some steps back.
Mars in Aries will help us feel fired up to initiate something in our lives. Although when Mars goes retrograde it will be time to go inward, reflect and slow down our energy. Focus on the projects we already started. Then when it moves direct it will be about pushing your energy forward into something that you’re feeling passionate about.
Capricorn Full Moon Lunar Eclipse (July 5th)
An Eclipse is a culmination point, an ending, purging, or completion of some kind. It’s a powerful day for detoxifying and releasing something. The finale Eclipse of the season is here. The next time we will experience another Eclipse in Capricorn or Cancer will be in 8 years.
In what way have you felt called to create boundaries to either pursue your professional life or spend more time on self-care and with those you love? The Capricorn/Cancer energy has moved through to teach us to awaken and reassess these areas of our lives. An astroid called Vesta is close to the Sun during this Eclipse. Vesta represents harvest and abundance, and its presence will be ensuring that this Eclipse brings the fruits of our labor.
New Moon in Cancer (July 2oth)
It’s a healing time to walk next to water, swim, take a salt bath and enter into your internal world of emotions. Saturn will come into a square with the moon which can have you experiencing a lot internally and stuffing your emotions in. Notice any feelings that need to be released and spend this time setting a clear intention for yourself. The end of the month has enjoyable aspects which can have us feeling renewed and alive.
Saturn Re-Enters Capricorn
Saturn entered Aquarius March 21st and is now in retrograde moving back into the sign of Capricorn for 5 1/2 months before it moves back into Aquarius for the next two years. With Saturn revisiting to the last few degrees of Capricorn, from now until December, we may notice themes from March and earlier in the year resurfacing again.
When Saturn was last traveling through these final degrees of Capricorn during spring, many countries around the world entered lockdown. We may find ourselves revisiting that in some way, although we can understand and know how to navigate through it because it’s something we have gone through before.
On a personal level, Saturn moving back into Capricorn may stir some past themes for us to finally finish with.Whatever the main focus in your life has been in the last 2 years, pertaining to building on something, is coming to completion at this time. You may have had to channel hard work into some area of your life and in the next 5 1/2 months that energy can come to a head and have you master something in a way.
