July 2017 Femastrology
July gets off to an irritable start, with emotional Mars in Cancer opposite controlling Pluto in Capricorn. This is a tense vibration, which may make negotiations and legal contests even more challenging than expected. This influence can lead to conflict with others, usually when emotion collides with reason. A word to the wise: choose your battles. In some instances, this powerful astrological combo may help motivate those who need to “fight the good fight,” but could also lead to violence and aggression if not kept in check. A calm head and patient attitude may be hard to muster, but will be of great value for the first half of this month. This feisty feeling will likely carry on through July 10, 2017, when the Sun in Cancer reaches 18° and opposes Pluto. This is definitely strong stuff! Chill pill required!
As soon as cranky Mars is done opposing Pluto, it jumps into the fray again, this time with Uranus in Aries. From July 15, 2017, through July 20, these two planets will be in a tense square, and sparks will fly! Turn in your “drama card” now and you’ll be ahead of the game. Some disagreements may be unavoidable now, but could lead to peaceful solutions in the future. Find positive ways to blow off steam when needed, and give others some space to do the same. With Mars at odds with both Pluto and Uranus for the first half of the month, the stage is set for controversy in the headlines, both in the US and Internationally.
Mars heads in a better direction on July 21, 2017 when it when it goes into Fire Sign Leo. This bodes well for cooperative efforts during the second half of the month. This is a favorable energy for leadership.
The other important news about July has to do with Mercury, the planet of communication. Mercury leaves watery Cancer and heads into fiery Leo on July 6, 2017. This is good for putting positive thoughts into action. Use this energy to get things moving regarding business, travel, and purchases. Get as much done as possible this month, because in August, Mercury will go Retrograde. So, if you have people to meet, things to do, and places to go it will go better if you get moving in July. By August, it would be best to have things already in place.
There is a Full Moon at 17° Capricorn on Saturday, July 9, 2017, at 9:07 pm PDT. The Moon in Capricorn will line up with powerful Pluto, giving us a change to “dig deep” and delve into the depths of our souls. This is a powerful and transformational moon, good for Vision Quests, magic, and deep meditation.
The Sun goes into Fire Sign Leo on Saturday, July 22, 2016, immediately followed by a New Moon at 0° Leo on Sunday, July 23, 2017 at 2:46 am PDT. The New Moon always represents a chance to “reboot” your energy. The Dark of the Moon is best used for thoughtful, activities that encourage balance and harmony. The Leo New Moon will be a fantastic opportunity to do something artistic, spontaneous, and creative. Use this new cycle to awaken your Inner Child, and acknowledge your Inner Creator.
Opportunity Days: July 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 18, 23 and 24
