Monday 7/23

Moon in Sagittarius

The Moon in Sagittarius inspires us to search beyond ourselves for truth, knowledge, expansion, and adventure. We are less likely to want to fall into mundane routine and we will feel a strong urge for freedom. This energy is good for doing something that gives you a spark in your life. Maybe make some extra plans to do something out of the ordinary.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Square Venus in Virgo 8:35AM

Our relationships could experience some tension throughout the day and it is important that we remain grounded and not too overly critical of others. We may benefit from having some time to adventure by ourselves rather than forcing another to do something they don't want to do. This energy also makes it hard for us to focus on the things that need to get done vs. the things we would rather be doing.

Moon Square Neptune in Pisces 11:07AM

We feel tension around our need to break free from mundane structures and we could easily fall into illusive perceptions around our feelings. We are more susceptible to over indulgence during this transit as a form of escapism. Over spending, eating, drinking etc... It is going to be important that we find a way to indulge what the heart needs without becoming self destructive.

Tuesday 7/24

Moon Void of Course 1:22AM

Moon Enters Capricorn 2:49PM

After an intense emotional month in Cancer, the energy of Tuesday works to block us off from feeling things as empathetically or emotionally as we have been. This could work to our advantage if we utilize the energy in a way that is focused on getting grounded in the physical and more in touch with reality in a healthy way. Unlike the day before, we may feel more inclined to stick to routine and this is a good day for doing physical actives or getting things in order around the home or at our jobs.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Venus in Virgo Opposition Neptune in Pisces 12:23PM

Fantasy and Illusions could get a dose of reality with this opposition hitting between Neptune and Venus. We could find ourselves trying to make our fantasies a reality- but there could be some tension within the process. This could induce some tension around people we want validation or attention from in a romantic way and we are more likely to fall into being deceived or deceiving others about our true intentions.

Moon Trine Uranus in Taurus 7:49PM

The need to change things in our lives that in the long haul will enable us to have more stability is enhanced in the evening. It is important we give ourselves room to connect to our bodies in a healthy way and to be open to changes that need to take place in order to provide us the right kind of stability for the future.

Moon Conjunct Saturn in Capricorn 10:46PM

Our need to get grounded in the evening continues to be the main focus. This energy is good for doing physical activity, or things regarding work or home care that allow for you to feel proactive and productive within the physical realms of being. Doing some evening yoga or and evening work out is a good idea.

Wednesday 7/25

Moon in Capricorn

Today will be a difficult day in feeling totally comfortable within ourselves. There is a lot of energy that causes us to feel haunted by our past in a way that forces us to reflect on areas within our lives that are not helping us move forward. What needs to be acknowledged and worked through so that you can move forward constructively? A lot changes in regards to our egos are being conjured up. Many people are moving, starting new jobs, ending or beginning relationships, making large life changes- this is the time for that growth and for allowing yourself to feel uncomfortable so that the changes can take place. No matter how much we embrace change, it is still not an easy or comfortable process. Be ok with being uncomfortable for the time being as it is what will push you into that next chapter.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Sun in Leo Square Uranus in Taurus 4:34AM

Tension around creative expression and practical application is enhanced throughout the coming days. We may feel like we know what we want but that we are maybe not all the way ready to see it come into its physical manifestation. Changes may take place that are unexpected and we need to be open to learning and growing from these changes.

Where can you embrace change in yourself and in your life at this time?

Moon Sextile Jupiter in Scorpio 6:32PM

This transit allows for us to tap into our subconscious more effortlessly despite some of the blockages we could be feeling around feelings and sense of self at this time. Use whatever energy or information comes up to the surface as an opportunity to learn more areas of your life that could be healed and acknowledged more openly and honestly.

Mercury Stations Retrograde in Leo 10:03PM

Mercury retrograde in Leo will last until August 18th, which just happens to be my birthday, lucky me!

Mercury retrograde in Leo asks us to reevaluate our relationships to ourselves around our self expression, confidence, inner child, and how we communicate our loyalty, love, and needs to others as well as ourselves. This energy will be focused a lot around our relationship to our mental process towards ourselves in regard to our mantras around self confidence. Are we boosting our self esteem, or crushing it? How can we allow more love, playfulness, and creativity into our lives?

Moon Sextile Neptune in Pisces 11:30PM

Our need to escape from reality is enhanced in the evening and it is imperative that we be careful not to fall too deep into the rabbit hole. Try to focus on unleashing your need for escapism into a healthy creative endeavor and give yourself space to play within the fantasy realm through the form of writing, art, poetry, or music.

Thursday 7/26

Moon in Capricorn

Moon Void of Course 6:41AM

With the Moon Void of Course in Capricorn the whole day we may feel like getting grounded is difficult. The transits of the day create a lot of tension in the air and we run the risk of being short tempered and impatient. It will be important that we slow down rather than be quick to react to these feelings.

Strong Aspects During the Day PST

Moon Conjunct Pluto in Capricorn 6:41AM

The Moon meets up with Pluto in the AM enhancing our need for accepting anything in our life we cannot control. We will need to make sure we stay grounded and allow for internal and external changes to take place as they will. Emotional transformation around our physical world is the theme during this transit.

Sun in Leo Opposition Mars in Aquarius 10:14PM

Battle of the will within our minds and our hearts creates a lot of tension for us in the days during this transit. We will feel tense and a need for self evaluation in regard to what we are doing with our lives. Mars in Aquarius causes us to feel aggressive about establishing our ideas and beliefs in the world, while the Sun in Leo enhances our need to be focused on who we are and what we want and how we share that with others. With these two strong forces at odds with each other, there is room for a lot of self destructive behavior, arrogance, or aggression towards ourselves or others. We need to find ways of working heat through the body in a healthy way. Channel this tension into some creative expression.

Friday 7/27

Total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon) at 4 degrees of Aquarius 12:52PM

This Lunar Eclipse is the longest eclipse of the century. It has been 120 years since we have had a Total Lunar Eclipse that has lasted over 60 minutes. According to Nasa this Eclipse with be lasting 100 minutes and in Astrology the karmic effects of an Eclipse in ones life like this will have a ripple effect of change within and externally for over the next 6 months.

This Eclipse calls for us to examine our thought patterns and what we tell ourselves about the world that is a perception that may be holding us back from progress. Because this Eclipse falls on the lunar south node, it is about releasing past life karma and anything that we are now meant to be truly releasing and letting go of. The effects of this eclipse will last forever but we will see the changes develop through the rest of the year. It is imperative that we allow for these changes to take place as this is the karmic healing we are being asked to do at this point in our lives. Release fears, demons, and work through the process of letting go a life that you are meant to be leaving behind.
