Monday, July 8th:
Mercury retrograde conjunct Mars in Leo exact at 4:27pm MDT
This is a volatile energy when it comes to communication to others. While our minds might move more quickly, our words may become much sharper and more abrasive. Be mindful of the language used today to avoid unintentionally hurting others. With Mercury in retrograde, impulsive decisions made at the start of this week are likely to backfire.
Venus in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus exact at 8:32am MDT
This energy favors trying new things and making small changes in relationships and material matters, especially those involving the home and family.
Tuesday, July 9th:
First quarter square of the Moon in Libra exact at 4:55am MDT
Sun in Cancer conjunct North Node and opposing Saturn in Capricorn exact at 10:07am MDT
This is a heavy, melancholy energy that highlights limitations, restrictions, challenges and otherwise oppressive energies preventing us from fully embracing our Soul’s authentic path in this lifetime. This is also an activation of the eclipse season energies with the Sun in a conjunction with the North Node. This energy may illuminate past karma along with old fears, anxieties and insecurities that prevent us from embracing our destiny. Today provides an important point of release. The Sun’s connection to the lunar nodes may also bring about synchronistic, fated occurrences that, while experienced as somewhat difficult in the moment, will ultimately guide us in the right direction moving forward.
Wednesday, July 10th:
Sun in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces exact at 10:31pm MDT
This dreamy, Neptunian influence allows us a means for escape from the harsh reality of the changes we must make this week. The energy of Neptune in harmonious aspect with the Sun provides opportunities to tap into compassion, empathy, creativity, intuition and mysticism.
Thursday, July 11th:
Mars in Leo square Uranus in Taurus exact at 11:01am MDT
This explosive energy is ripe for rushing through things and making impulsive, risky decisions that may alter our lives in big ways! If change is truly what you need and you’ve been resisting it for quite some time, this aspect is likely to bring frustrations to a head and create circumstances in which the status quo is no longer tolerable.
Waxing Gibbous phase (Moon trine Sun) in Scorpio exact at 1:33pm MDT
Sunday, July 14th:
Sun in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn exact at 8:51am MDT
The Truth often comes to light when the Sun opposes Pluto which happens only once each year. People become sharper and much more perceptive under this influence, making it difficult to hide that which has remained buried for far too long. This is a deeply transformative and restorative energy, as once you’ve discovered the Truth hidden beneath the surface it becomes impossible to align yourself with anything else! People may become more obsessive, paranoid, and controlling at this time and power and control issues with people in positions of perceived authority may come to a head.
