This month starts off with Mars active in Leo with Mars opposite Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius July 1, 2021 9:07 am ET, Mars connecting with Chiron in Aries July 2, 2021 4:41 am ET, and Mars in a difficult aspect to Uranus in Taurus July 3, 2021 9:39 pm ET. This is a T-square configuration indicating much tension and conflict that could be fiery. This indicates a strong demonstration of self expression in the face of limitations imposed on society through social groups, social networks, especially regarding identity politics and the need for personal freedom. Mars is the warrior and will fight to express himself and fight for freedom and self preservation. Leadership qualities, brass and confidence by individuals are indicated as loud resistance against restrictions imposed on the collective by those in positions of authority. A demand for responsible action is indicated as we begin the month of July. Cybersecurity issues could also get a lot of attention at this time.
*Also, keep in mind that Mars in Leo opposite Saturn in Aquarius also indicates controlling the collective consciousness through mind-games and theatrics. What’s happening in the public eye around this time could very well be part of a show for effect.
Uranus in Taurus speaks to personal freedom financially and in body autonomy, and also points to scientific experimentation of biotechnology. Mars the warrior in contrast to this indicates that there is a dramatic war on for freedom and rights. Mars in Leo is extra fiery and excess energy can lead to sensations of anxiety. Exercise can help expel excess energy for better balance.
*On July 4, 2021 for Independence Day we have the Sun in Cancer in conflict with Chiron in Aries at 11:38 am ET. We also have the Moon conjunct Uranus in Taurus at this time. This can indicate a sudden change that affects people personally and emotionally. A desire for personal freedom is indicated. Protective and defensive qualities for self preservation are highlighted. Tension in personal relationships, family and the larger consideration of the homeland, especially regarding identity issues are in focus. A need for security is emphasized.
I also talk more about Mars activity as the month begins in the June 27 to July 4, 2021 Weekly Astrology Horoscope here.
Venus is also active as we begin the month as Venus in Leo connects with the Destiny Point in Gemini on July 5, 2021 at 3:45 pm ET, Venus will be opposite Saturn Retrograde in Aquarius on July 6, 2021 at 10:35 pm ET, Venus will then be in positive aspect to Chiron in Aries on July 7, 2021 at 4:08 pm ET, and Venus will also be in difficult aspect to Uranus in Taurus on July 8, 2021 at 3:24 pm ET. So basically Venus in Leo is connecting with the same planets as Mars in Leo did at the beginning of the month. Venus is known to disarm Mars, so hopefully we will see a move away from aggressiveness, tension or anxiety and more towards a kinder, gentler approach. I think people will recognize the value of love as we navigate through these times and express that more clearly as an antidote to the potential for aggressiveness that Mars the warrior indicates. Attention toward self worth and what we value most in our relationships in life can be emphasized now. It’s like making up after the battle.
Mercury in Gemini is in a difficult aspect to Neptune Retrograde in Pisces on July 6, 2021 at 3:37 am ET indicating that information that we access at this time will be quite unclear in whether it is true or not. The possibility of deception is increased now, especially with Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces now as well. With such a lack of knowing for sure, people are likely to look for answers from a more spiritual perspective. Meditation and prayer are indicated.
We have a New Moon in Cancer July 9, 2021 at 9:16 pm ET when the Moon meets the Sun in Cancer. It’s a new beginning and with this New Moon in Cancer you can think of this period as a cleansing where you wash away negativity from the past, and let it go so you can renew yourself in a new image, like a baptism that refreshes you to recognize that you have an important role in bringing forward your more sensitive, caring and loving qualities to the world for yourself and others.
This New Moon brings attention to family matters, home life and personal care for your body. Renewing your home, making it fresh and clean so it feels comfortable and cared for is recommended as part of a positive renewal of your energy. Making improvements to your health and nutrition, and taking care of your body is suggested.
Mercury enters Cancer July 11, 2021 at 4:33 pm ET then Mercury in Cancer is in a positive aspect to Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces on July 12, 2021 3:43 pm ET. This is a good time to find comfort in talking to people close to you that you know genuinely care about you. It’s time to think about family affairs and feeling comfortable and bonded with the people you are with. Big secrets could be revealed at this time. Learning more about philosophy and spirituality is recommended.
Venus meets Mars in Leo July 13, 2021 9:32 am ET. This is traditionally considered a positive indication for relationships, a time for fun, self expression and entertainments. For those that are single, a chance meeting or setting scheduling a romantic date can be suggested. I will also talk more about this in the Weekly Horoscope as we proceed through the month.
As we enter the 2nd half of the month, Chiron stations Retrograde in Aries July 15, 2021 12:41 pm ET indicating another cycle of attention brought to healing wounds of identity issues, especially those that have their roots in childhood. The core of one’s identity is to be explored on a personal level and the desire for people to redefine themselves on their own terms is highlighted. Restrictions imposed by external forces whether they are peer pressure or opinions of friends, family or the larger push of identity politics have people reconsidering who they really are and how they fit into current circumstances. There is a highly defensive quality to Chiron Retrograde in Aries, and protecting one’s own ego and healing personal wounds, especially those from childhood, are emphasized during this period.
The Sun in Cancer is opposite Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn July 17, 2021 at 6:46 pm ET. Home and family are symbolically where the light is now, and it’s directly opposed to the transformations that are happening in the political and business realms of society. This could be a significant point of increased awareness where people are more keen on self preservation and personal protection from the conflicting, messy forces of authority and power.
Venus enters Virgo July 21, 2021 8:36 pm ET and Venus will be opposite Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces July 22, 2021 8:44 am ET. This is your reminder to take care of your body and to value and respect your health. Your body is your temple. Prioritize self-love and worth. A more mystical, metaphysical and philosophical approach to self care is suggested. Meditation, prayer, yoga and religious beliefs regarding health are highlighted.
The Sun enters Leo July 22, 2021 10:26 am ET. We’re in the hot days of summer. We could see a lot more strong expressions of people’s personalities that wake us up and give rise to greater wisdom and awareness. Celebrities can also get more attention now as Leo is the sign of entertainments. We could see performers in the spotlight that experience dramatic circumstances or express points of view now that could be triggers to wake more people up to see the light.
We have the Full Moon in Aquarius on July 23, 2021 at 10:38 pm ET. This is going to bring a lot of attention to how our thoughts and feelings are manifesting into our reality. Our collective consciousness is a big deal. We are social creatures that want to share what we know and learn with one another but with Saturn in Aquarius putting major restrictions and limitations on our speech and sharing of information it is not so easy to share the truth. We are all in this together, and of course there are those in powerful positions of authority that would like to control what we think and believe – thanks to Saturn. It is our right to share information to bring truth and wisdom into the world so we can help create a better future, but of course there are those that don’t want us all to succeed as they favor their own egos vision for the future rather than allowing us to all think and choose for ourselves. What we each think and believe contributes to the collective consciousness.
We could see a greater interest in raising consciousness and awareness as we get closer to this Full Moon. We could see strong reactions to information and beliefs around this time and it could be highly emotional as Full Moons often are. With Uranus as the ruling planet of Aquarius, we are reminded that an interest in freedom and freedom of thought and freedom of speech is of huge significance now.
The direction of our future, especially in the scientific sense is being pushed strongly now and with Uranus in Taurus it is biotechnology, our relationship to our bodies, nature and earth that are so important now. Uranus is the rebel, and wants freedom from restriction, so fighting for your rights to speak up and to have personal rights over your own body are so essential for us to be conscious of now. I will talk more about this in the Weekly Horoscope as we get closer to the end of the month.
Mercury finishes off in Cancer connecting opposite Pluto Retrograde in Capricorn July 25, 2021 4:14 pm ET which can bring up a lot of questions, insights and information about what is going on behind the scenes in the higher echelons of society in terms of politics, celebrity and business. The complex relationship dynamic between how our personal lives are affected and influenced by the goals of those in higher positions in society can be exposed now. Pluto is the underworld and speaks to judgment based on harsh truths and here we can learn about the hidden activities by plutocrats that can be abusive and destructive. In Cancer, Mercury indicates that talking to those close to us about the circumstances happening in the world is highly important now.
Mercury enters Leo July 27, 2021 9:11 pm ET. Here we will see a spotlight on words, ideas and information expressed, especially related to the egos of celebrities, and those in higher positions in society like leaders, kings and queens.
Jupiter Retrograde enters Aquarius July 28, 2021 8:41 am ET. This could be a big wave, a big shift as Jupiter leaves his short stint in Pisces since May 13th. Interestingly, because Aquarius is so much about our the social lives and technology sector, I though it was quite interesting that back in May right when Jupiter left Aquarius to enter Pisces, we got big news that Bill and Melinda were getting a divorce – big, influential players in this worldwide situation. We also saw that big news came out that the V was made in a lab in connection to Dr. F(rankenstein). So, with Jupiter entering back into the social and tech sector it will be very interesting to see what kind of Big News comes out around this time and should be noted. We could see major backtracking on information that has lead to false beliefs in the collective consciousness. Worldviews are set to change. Big attention on social media, social influencers are likely as well as attention on group-think, corporate media influence, organizations and foundations that push for social change and social engineering practices. Also remember that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in December 2020 put a huge spotlight on these power players, that’s right around when the V became available, which is still in experimental stages until 2023. Jupiter will be Retrograde in Aquarius until October 18, 2021.
Just when Jupiter Retrograde is fresh back in Aquarius, Mars in Leo is opposite Jupiter Retrograde in Aquarius on July 29, 2021 11:49 am ET. This points to some big, loud news. We could see big battles heating up with leaders, whether they are political, tech oriented or religious, it all fits together in the grand scheme of things when it comes to global leaders. Egos are likely to dominate as shakeups in the tech sector are indicated. Very dramatic, theatrical and aggressive behavior is likely as we finish the month that can have a large impact on the collective consciousness.
Mars enters Virgo July 29, 2021 4:32 pm ET which could bring the battleground to health matters and people’s jobs. Aggressive, defensive demonstrations about personal health and well being are indicated.
