July’s Energy Report
You’re now entering Eclipse Season.
Cancer (New Moon) is associated with the nurturing principle (self-care), intuition and family.
Capricorn (Full Moon) is associated with self-discipline, boundaries, self-responsibility and providing.
This is a good month to consider work/life balance, how centred you are, your emotional control, how supported you feel and your visions for your family and career. Eclipses bring insights, so remain aware to what arises for you and seek healing for any tender spots that call for your attention.
Remember to check where the Lunar energy falls in your chart – see below for more on this – , as that will give more information; including the area of your life being affected.
Mars will move into the sign of Leo on the 2nd of July for the next 6 weeks conjunct to Mercury and square to Uranus signifying that it may be tricky to hold your tongue for the next 6 weeks!
Now’s the time to take confident action and walk your talk from the heart.
If you tend to shy away from brandishing your true and uniquely different self, this month is a good one to take a few baby steps.
The more comfortably you can do ‘you’ this month, the greater freedom you’ll feel and the more you’ll inspire others to do the same.
July’s New Moon on the 3rd officially kicks off our second Eclipse Season of the year, but you’ve probably been feeling the intensity increase for a week or so by now.
Eclipse Seasons are like the build up to a Full Moon on steroids; tending to magnify the shadow side.
Their gift is insight into what needs to be healed.
The New Moon falls in Cancer, squares Chiron and opposes Saturn and, with this eclipse belonging to Saros Series 3 North, strong emotions related to home and family could arise for your awareness.
Themes of abandonment, support (or lack of it), inner child wounds, feeling invisible (not being seen for who you are/feeling able to be who you are) and potential dis-empowerment could surface.
Loneliness and isolation may be experienced and it’s important to look at where you may be playing out a self-fulfilling prophecy.
With the Sabian Symbol for the New Moon degree being ‘A Clown is Caricaturing Well-Known Personalities’ it could be time to drop the mask and reach out for greater emotional support; to risk some vulnerability.
If you find yourself feeling hurt after your wish for approval’s denied, it may be time for a deep dive within; to explore your sense of self-love.
In fact, self-love is usually the answer to many things!
Although things may feel tricky, self-awareness is a blessing – awareness of pain is usually the first step to ensure we take steps towards healing it.
Remember that you create your reality, so It’s important to take responsibility for the good, the bad and the ugly.
Feel it to heal it and watch those changes ripple out into the reality you perceive around you.
New Moons bring new beginnings and you may feel the need to set something new in motion; perhaps related to family matters/traditions, your self-care routine(s), your emotional self or perhaps in relation to the life area this eclipse is highlighting within your chart – see section ‘Where is the Lunar Energy likely to impact you?’ below for the moon degrees.
Venus’ move into Cancer on the 4th ups tender feelings along with your intuition and compassion.
Take some time to explore what you desire from your relationships – family or otherwise.
You may find yourself wanting to be home more now and desirous of creature comforts – slippers, socks, cake…
Beautifying your sanctuary could be high on your list.
Mercury will turn retrograde on the 8th in the sign of Leo sparking a re-think of your creativity.
With family themes high this month, you may re-visit a tender part of your childhood during this phase, which is set to conclude early August.
Is it time to listen to your inner child and rewrite the story?
The second Mercury retrograde will see him backtrack from 4 degrees and 27 seconds of Leo to 23 degrees and 56 seconds of Cancer.
Which area of your life (birth chart house) does this highlight?
Where are you being asked to review, re-inspire and recreate?
Where (and with who) might communication difficulties arise?
Watch for the shadows coming out to play as we move towards the Full Moon in Capricorn, which will exact on the 17th.
What’s being illuminated?
What insights are you receiving?
Is it time to build something new and release what’s outworn from your past?
Perhaps by taking a new approach to family in a way that transforms your lineage.
Energy and optimism are likely to be high now and if you’ve been heeding the messages of your unconscious and doing the healing work, your faith in yourself is likely to blossom as you move through the month.
Watch for control issues, stress and for any areas of your life that feel like a burden.
How can you change this and make your life more comfortable?
The Full Moon marks the culmination of the eclipse, so from this point on the intensity will drop.
Mercury will conjunct the Sun on the 21st marking the halfway point of his retrograde cycle. Mark this date in your diary, as an important seed could be planted now that will come to light once Mercury turns direct.
The Sun will move into Leo on the 23rd beginning 4-weeks when you’re likely to feel more self-assured.
With the Sun in square to Uranus as it makes its entry to this radiant sign, it’s time to allow your individuality to come to the fore and to give yourself breathing space from anything that’s felt restrictive.
When Mercury turns direct early August, you’ll feel less inhibited in front of the camera, so you may want to use this period to plan some video content if that’s a necessary part of your business; especially as Venus will also move into Leo on the 28th.
August may well be your month to shine!
