Last week we just had the New Moon in Cancer. This week, we have Chiron in Aries stationing Retrograde.

Here we have interpretations of new possibilities for this week that are associated with current trends in astrology:

Mercury in Cancer connects with Jupiter Retrograde in Pisces July 12, 2021 at 3:34 pm ET. Jupiter is going to be in Pisces for just a couple more weeks before heading back into Aquarius. With Mercury connecting with Jupiter now there is the potential for news that makes big waves. Look for good news this week as it can change your perspective on reality. Do be cautious of what is said in the mainstream though as backtracking on big promises and false hopes is likely. Pisces always guarantees there can be a lack of clarity, and Jupiter Retrograde here can lead to widespread confusion and misinformation by those in the big leagues of information exchange.

Venus in Leo meets Mars in Leo July 13, 2021 at 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 scheduling a romantic date can be suggested. Attractions are considered heightened at this time. Celebrity relationships could get more attention this week.

The Sun in Cancer connects with Neptune Retrograde in Pisces July 15, 2021 at 4:48 am ET. Care and compassion can bring deep wisdom about the meaning of life now. Enjoying time in the sun and by the ocean, a beach or by the pool is recommended for personal self care and relaxation this week. This is a good time to lighten up your karma by doing something kind and caring.


As we enter the 2nd half of July, Chiron stations Retrograde in Aries July 15, 2021 at 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 ego is going through another cycle of change as people face the truth about themselves. People redefining themselves on their own terms is highlighted. Restrictions and judgments imposed by external forces whether they are peer pressure or opinions of friends, family or the larger push of identity politics can 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 are emphasized now, especially longstanding personal hangups that have developed since the time of one’s childhood.

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 overbearing and domineering authoritative power. People will notice where the power structure of society imposes and greatly conflicts with personal comforts and privacy. Forceful changes imposed by the hierarchy of society now can have more people wake up to what’s really going on behind the scenes.
