MONDAY JULY 8
Chiron stations retrograde in Aries
Venus in Cancer square Chiron in Aries
Venus in Cancer sextile Uranus in Taurus
Mercury Rx conjunct Mars in Leo
Chiron stations retrograde for the first time since entering Aries back on February 18th. The Wounded Healer has made it to 5° 56’ in cardinal fire; this pause is an opportunity to find the medicine that lives in recently activated childhood wounds. Chiron will be retrograde until December 12th - check your natal chart to see what life area is in review for you.
Meanwhile, Venus’ square to Chiron helps you get in touch with your inner child’s needs, revealing a self-soothing technique that is no longer working. Venus’ sextile to Uranus inspires you to find a new way to ease your pain. Uranus in Taurus will likely speak from your body - make the time to listen.
If you don’t like what you see/hear, the conjunction between a newly retrograde Mercury and Mars in Leo might incite you to act out verbally. Conflicts that arise in the mind today find a quick pathway out the mouth.
TUESDAY JULY 9
Sun in Cancer opposes Saturn in Capricorn
The Sun’s annual opposition to Saturn arrives midway between eclipses with both celestial bodies conjunct a lunar node. It’s a Full Moon type of energy in the Saturn/Sun cycle, amplifying the purgative qualities Saturn’s presence on the South Node. The tension is modified by a T-square with the Moon/Pallas Athena tête-à-tête in Libra. Today’s First quarter Moon brings flashes of insight, preparing us for the upcoming partial lunar eclipse. The dance of light and shadow continues.
WEDNESDAY JULY 10
Sun in Cancer trine Neptune in Pisces
Midweek brings a little bit of sweetness. The Sun/Neptune trine puts an emphasis on dreaming instead of doing. It’s a good day for making art, spending time in nature, healing work & meditation. The waxing Moon in Scorpio deepens the potential nostalgia of the grand water trine. Neptune is helping you to dissolve a barrier between you & spirit. Don’t get in the way of the potential epiphanies with escapism.
THURSDAY JULY 11
Mars in Leo trine Chiron in Aries
Mars in Leo square Uranus in Taurus.
The inner child acts out. Impulsive morphs into explosive as the day progresses, fueled by the Mars/Uranus square. Backlash from earlier this week when Venus was in aspect to both Chiron and Uranus make themselves known. All those feels are hard to handle! The pressure coming from being in between Tuesday’s Sun/Saturn opposition and tomorrow’s Sun/Pluto opposition may cause things to get blown out of proportion. Proceed with caution.
SUNDAY JULY 14
SUN/CANCER OPPOSES PLUTO/CAPRICORN
The Cancer Sun encounters another draining aspect with the opposition to Pluto in Capricorn. You might be asking, what else is left to let go of? You’ll find your answers whenever and wherever you are (trying) to exert “power over” in order to make yourself feel better. This can be within, or with other people. The potency of Pluto is the riches that are found beneath the soil. You’re getting ready to shed another layer, a BIG layer, with next week’s Full Moon Eclipse. What is emerging from your subconscious today? The work here is deep, and it requires effort to chip away at the calcifications you’ve built up in your system. Good news is -the crystals waiting within are illuminatory.
