Astro news this week: A shift of planetary energies

 

Astrological update for the week of July 4-11, 2022.

Mars in Taurus. Mars leaves fiery Aries for placid Taurus on July 5th and we will all breathe a collective sigh of relief. Things have been plenty hot with both Mars and Jupiter in Aries, along with Chiron to irritate the tender places in the soul with the hope of fostering healing and opening the heart. Under the influence of Taurus we are able to find our internal balance point and a renewed connection to the earthy things that bring pleasure and relief.

Mars will be in Taurus until August 20, so we have quite a while to enjoy the relaxation that this placement can bring. There are a couple of caveats though: First, it’s tempting with Mars in Taurus to want to smooth over rough edges and ignore danger signals that may arise when our lives are out of balance or confrontation is needed in order to maintain our inner peacefulness. Remember the bull who is peaceful in the pasture until the irritation becomes too great, and then an explosion of rage can ensue. Second, Mars provides motivation and physical energy, and this can be lacking when Mars is in Taurus. We may need to find other ways to motivate ourselves while Mars is in Taurus,

Very active Mercury. Mercury is the planet of adaptability, flexibility, gatherer and dispenser of information, curious and filled with a desire to learn and know things. Mercury opens the mind so all kinds of things can drop in, and encourages movement. Can’t sit still? Blame Mercury. Under Mercury’s influence we need to keep moving, keep learning, keep taking in new experiences in order to learn more about ourselves.

In mythology, Mercury was the only god who could travel into the Underworld which was Pluto’s domain. Mercury was therefore able to bring messages back and forth, and astrological Mercury serves as a conduit for messages from the conscious mind to the subconscious, and back again. Mercury leaves its own sign of Gemini for Cancer on July 5th, shifting the focus from curiosity and activity to feelings and emotions. The Sun is already in Cancer so the focus on family, food and feeling will be accentuated. With Mercury in Cancer we tend to think more emotionally and it can be more difficult to think objectively. On the plus side, those of us who have difficulty knowing how we feel about things will find this easier!

Here’s what you need to know about the week ahead. (Dates and times are for the Eastern time zone, please adjust for your locality.)

Monday July 4. We begin the week with the Moon in detail-loving Virgo. Mars is finishing up its journey through Aries so we haven’t lost the fire yet, making this a good day to organize and complete projects which is what I plan to do today! The Moon makes primarily harmonious aspects, although we may find communication with loved ones a little difficult for a few hours in the afternoon.

(Virgo Moon sextile Sun 1:03 pm, Moon square Venus 3:37 pm, Moon trine Uranus 11:22 pm.)

Tuesday July 5.  Both Mercury and Mars change signs today as described above, and we may experience this as feeling a little unsettled. Fortunately these two planets interact in harmony for much of the day, energizing the mind and helping to clarify our thoughts. This is a very good condition for writers or any kind of organization.

The Virgo Moon interacts comfortably with Ceres and Pluto today, fortunate aspects for a positive sense of well-being, and then the Moon enters Libra at 10:24 pm EDT. With the Moon in Libra we will require a greater sense of equilibrium over the next couple of days, and will be more sensitive to disharmony. Such disharmony could present itself for a few hours very late at night EDT under a stressful Moon/Mercury aspect but that will soon pass.

(Mars enters Taurus 6:03 am, Mercury enters Cancer 6:25 am, Mercury sextile Mars 6:36 am, Moon sextile Ceres 6:52 am, Moon opposite Neptune 1:45 pm, Moon trine Pluto 6:03 pm, Moon enters Libra 10:24 pm, Moon square Mercury on Wednesday 1:20 am.)

Wednesday July 6. The Moon is in Venus-ruled Libra, and Venus harmonizes with Chiron today making this truly a day for love and the pursuit of beauty and sweet things. Venus encourages artistry and aesthetics as well as relationships of equality and harmony, and the healing energies of Chiron offers a path to improve all of our relationships (with others and with ourselves) so that we can better experience that balance and peacefulness.

(Moon opposite Jupiter 1:12 pm, Venus sextile Chiron 5:17 pm.)

Thursday July 7.  The Libra Moon is quite active today which may feel somewhat unsettling, especially with Libra so sensitive to disharmony. We may have brief sensations of discomfort throughout the day that will soon diffuse into greater comfort. Lunar aspects last only for a few hours but when there are so many in one day it can feel a bit like a panorama of feelings.

(Moon square Sun 2:14 am, opposite Chiron 4:45 am, trine Venus 5:53 am, square Ceres 4:32 pm, trine Saturn 7:17 pm.)

Friday July 8.  The Moon makes the shift into Scorpio early in the morning, intensifying our drives and passions for a few days. This could be somewhat problematic today, since the Sun illuminates some old wounds that are ready to be processed and released. Ultimately the healing of these wounds is a positive experience since once we are liberated from these old patterns we feel more free and so much lighter. But the process is not always comfortable, especially in the morning when the Scorpio Moon faces off with Mars.

By afternoon though the clouds will begin to part and a nice Moon/Mercury aspect will aid in more positivity and understanding. We will want to take some care, however, because a Mercury/Jupiter aspect is building to culminate on Saturday morning which brings potential for miscommunication and could cause us to be somewhat impatient.

(Moon square Pluto 1:03 am, Moon enters Scorpio 5:15 am, Moon opposite Mars 9:06 am, Sun square Chiron 1:22 pm, Moon trine Mercury 5:31 pm.)

Saturday July 9.  That Mercury/Jupiter aspect that begins on Friday culminates early Saturday morning EDT, but then we have mostly clear astrological skies for much of the day. The Moon is still in Scorpio so emotions rule, but even so this would be a good day to try something new and unexpected.

Late in the evening we may experience some restriction or a bit of isolation but that will soon pass.

(Mercury square Jupiter 6:13 am, Moon trine Sun 11:10 am, opposite Uranus 12:34 pm, trine Ceres 10:20 pm, square Saturn 11:04 pm.)

Sunday July 10.  Plan to celebrate something great today! There is nothing but positive planetary energies all day, and that will spill over into Monday as well. The Moon ends its journey through Scorpio on a positive note before moving into Sagittarius around 8:30 am EDT. The Sagittarius Moon inspires us to not sweat the small stuff, as they say, and expand our vision to accommodate a bigger dream. A wonderful Sun/Uranus aspect encourages the introduction of something new and exciting with an abundance of sparkling delight.

(Moon trine Neptune 12:55 am, sextile Pluto 4:34 am, Moon enters Sagittarius 8:34 am, Sun sextile Uranus 8:38 am, Moon trine Jupiter 10:02 pm.)

I’m always happy to end the weekly forecast on a positive note, and it doesn’t get much better than this. ❤️

Happy (?) Birthday USA, 2022 edition

 

Every history has a beginning, a crescendo, a crisis, and then either a breakdown or a breakthrough. This is true for individuals, and it’s also true for countries. The story of the United States is a fascinating one, especially through the astrological lens.

Before we can understand the current situation we have to understand how we got here. Back in 2009 I wrote:

The United States is at an astrological crossroads.  The US progressed Mars turned retrograde last year, and is searching for a new direction.  Pluto, god of transformation, has been challenging the US Midheaven, the point of public perception.  The qualities that gave the US its power over the past 400 years will not work for the next 400, and the nation will have to adapt.  Economic systems are changing and becoming much more tenuous and fluid as they go global.  Traditional social systems are weakening and require a new way of looking at the way humans form families and cultural groups.  As a people we must become more lithe and limber so that we can adapt to the changing collective, or we will not survive the 21st century.  This is not a time to look back and long for the conservative values of the 1950s – those days are over.  There is a new day dawning, and we will have to be ready for it.

Apparently we are not ready for it, and the return of Pluto to its place in the U.S. chart is drawing attention to the deep fissures that divide the country. But let’s take a birthday look at the chart of the United States and see what is in store for us this year.

The U.S. Pluto Return.  The return of transiting Pluto to its place in the (Sibley) chart for the U.S. began officially in February 2022 and won’t be completed until October of 2023.  (Geeky astrological details: The second phase of the exact alignment occurs on July 11, 2022, and the third and final exact alignment occurs on December 28, 2022 just before Pluto moves into Aquarius.  However, Pluto will retrograde and in September- October of 2023 Pluto will return to a very tight though not exact conjunction.) I have written a great deal on this topic – if it’s new to you here is a good introductory article.

You never know what a Pluto transit will bring. Pluto tends to act as the hand of fate, destroying parts of our life which no longer serve us, empowering us where necessary, forcing us to create change where we may be dragging our feet. Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld, and is not afraid to dive into the dark recesses of the psyche where the secrets lie and we can see how this has been operative in U.S. Politics. The hate and rage that has been lurking underground for many years has emerged and it’s all out there for us to see. Which is horrific, but also necessary for real change to take place.

Major planetary transits:  In the U.S. chart, Mars (action) is in the 7th house of partnerships and enemies. The 7th house is pretty packed, with Venus, Jupiter and the Sun in there too. Americans like to think we have allies around the world, but we also have to have an enemy. That enemy began as England during the Revolutionary War, then the French, then the enemy was inside the house in the first Civil War. After the Civil War the enemy was the native peoples, followed by Germany in the first and second world wars, and then Communism in the 1950s.

Mars in the U.S. chart is squared by Neptune (idealism and confusion), and both of these planets have been activated by a transit of Neptune which began in March 2021 just after the January 6 riot and just completed officially although it will come very close to one last trigger point at the end of 2022. This Neptune transit has coincided with a massive rise of conspiracy theories and lack of clarity in U.S. politics. A certain amount of that is to be expected with Mars squaring Neptune in the U.S. chart, but this Neptune transit has exacerbated that.

A few words about the U.S. Progressed Sun in Pisces. I invite you to read this article about the movement of the U.S. Progressed Sun in Pisces and how that has impacted the political situation since 2004. The U.S. Progressed Sun is now more than halfway through Pisces, and in a few years it will begin to set off the Mars/Neptune dynamic in the U.S. chart suggesting it will take a good while for the splintering of American values to begin to realign.

Solar Return.  A Solar Return chart is cast for the moment that the Sun returns to its place in the natal chart. This might be on your birthday, or it might be a day before or a day after. This chart is a snapshot of the energies that will infuse your birthday year.

Note, this section has been revised since originally posted to correct an error. The Solar Return chart has an interesting conjunction of the Jupiter at the Midheaven representing the government and leadership of the nation. The Midheaven is the sign on the cusp of the tenth house, which in mundane astrology can also represent the president or the leader of the country. In the Solar Return chart for the coming twelve months, Aries, sign of the warrior, is the sign on the Midheaven in a conjunction to Jupiter. I would like to be optimistic, it is Jupiter after all, and think that this suggests a realignment of government to be able to function more efficiently and with a greater sense of united purpose. Chiron is there too, in a wide conjunction to Jupiter, which suggests that healing can take place. But Chiron squares the first house Sun, meaning that the healing of the core wound of identity will not necessarily come easily, but Chiron is sextile Venus which could smooth out some rough edges.

Mercury-ruled Gemini is rising in the solar return chart, and Mercury is in the first house and therefore extremely important in this chart. Mercury is the planet of communication and information, and the disseminating of information and the clearing up of misinformation could be a highlight of the year. Misinformation and confusion aren’t likely to disappear with our friend Neptune opposing the Moon in the solar return chart, but Mars harmonizes in a sextile to Mercury to help energize the processing and clarification of communication. In addition, both Neptune and the Moon are in harmonious aspect to the South Node of the past, helping to heal and emerge from the trauma which brought us to this place.

There is an interesting challenge (square) from the Black Moon Lilith (primal rage especially against patriarchy) to Eris (discord), and Pluto (creative destruction) is tied in there too (opposite BML, square Eris). Whereas last year the national strife was based around racial equity, this year it looks like women’s rights will become the focus.

The United States has been such an interesting experiment and unique of all of the nations of the world in its attempt to patchwork many different peoples together and create a quilt of humanity. Will this experiment be able to continue? That to me is the question of the time. ❤️

Pisces Horoscope July 2022

Pisces horoscope July 2022, balloon planets

Money Matters

Money is where there’s force and ambition in your horoscope as Mars charges through Aries and your personal money sector up until the 5th. You may experience a sense of urgency around money or finances. It could be a time when you need to be forthright and direct to get your personal needs met.

Mars is in feisty mood at the start of the month and clashes with Pluto in Capricorn on the 2nd. This combination is combustible and volatile and not for the faint-hearted. You might be up against the authorities or fighting someone close over money.

It could be an ongoing issue which flares up again. It’s important to stand up for your rights but choose your battles carefully. This kind of planetary conflict can wear you out or be dangerous.

Alternatively, as Pluto negates what it touches, it may mean that a source of money is no longer available to you. This could be the source of frustration or the trigger that starts an argument. Be aware that money and friendship don’t mix as July begins.

Gentle Vibes

Behind the scenes, there’s a gentler vibe taking place and you may be keen to avoid any conflict or clash and hide away instead. The Sun is in your fellow water sign Cancer up until the 22nd. Talk planet Mercury is swaying along here too from the 5th to the 19th.

Plus, the planet of relating Venus is in Gemini and your home and family sector up until the 18th. Add this all together and it turns your attention towards the things and people in life you love, adopting a slower pace and enjoying simple pleasures.

Venus in Gemini turns your attention towards home and family, your past and where you come from. You might be catching up with people you haven’t seen for some time. Or, be enjoying some quiet time or family time at home.

Venus is particularly active on the 13th & 14th when she aligns with Saturn, then Neptune, your co-ruler in your star sign, Pisces. This is lovely for inspiring your imagination. Dive deep into the realm of fantasy, dreams, your creative or spiritual source.

Caring Cancer

Cancer is the star sign that rules all the good things in your life, including romance, children & pregnancy, entertainment, creative projects and luck.

With the Sun here until the 22nd, this is an ideal time to do more of what you love, to prioritise play and go with the flow. Spend time reading or relaxing, daydreaming or pondering.

Mercury in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th is caring and counselling. Be there for the ones you love and ask for support if you need help or advice.

If there are any issues in these key areas of your life, especially love or parenting, the Full Moon on the 13th could prove pivotal. Full Moons are often a time of completion or culmination and this Full Moon is ideal for making a final decision.

Trust the light of the Moon to guide you and bring you clarity. Tap into your natural intuition and, if necessary, be ready to close a door on the past. There may be some sadness linked to events around this Full Moon but there’s also love and connection available. What takes place could bring you closer to the ones you love.

Also, Venus enters Cancer on the 18th where she remains until mid-August. This is a lovely transit of Venus for romance and passion. Consider what you might ‘give birth to’ while Venus is here as Venus rules art & beauty.

This could be a masterpiece, a work of art, a baby or a love affair. Venus is swooning her way through Cancer and you’ll feel her pull strongly. Lose yourself in your passions.

Do What You Love

On the 22nd, there’s a shift of pace as the Sun leaves gentle Cancer and enters fiery Leo. Talk planet Mercury also moves into Leo on the 19th. Therefore, the latter part of the month is a good time to focus on your work and routine, your health and well-being.

Ensure you’re in tip top condition and that work is a lovely place to be. If it’s not, you might be rethinking or reconsidering what you want to do and how.

The New Moon in Leo falls on the 28th, an excellent date to make a wish and set your intentions around work and health. New Moons are a symbol of new beginnings.

This would be a good time to restore your energy, look after yourself and do whatever makes you happy and cheerful. Engage in activities that put a smile on your face.

There’s another reason why the last week of July could be pleasurable for you. This is because your ruling planet Jupiter is in action on the same day as the New Moon, the 28th. This is when Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries in a gorgeous supportive planetary aspect to the Sun & Moon in Leo.

Sometimes, Jupiter turning retrograde means that things take a backward step. Yet, Jupiter’s energy is intense as the planet stations and can be channelled effectively. This means that you could have luck & abundance a’plenty when it comes to work and money.

Lucky dates are the 23rd & 31st. Take a risk, believe in yourself and play big in these key areas of your life. It’s an ideal time to restore your trust, hope and faith in life.

Act Fast

Finally, this month, there’s an unusual connection between the planet of change Uranus and the karmic north node in Taurus. They align in the heavens on the 26th and this can trigger the wheel of destiny turning.

Uranus often brings the unexpected when you may hear surprising news and Taurus is your communication sector. Keep your ear to the ground as it might be something unexpected or unusual that sets change in motion.

This creates a lively, yet restless vibe and you might find it hard to sit still or do the same thing day in, day out. Ring the changes if you can and embrace freedom where possible. Uranus doesn’t like to be chained to a desk.

Aquarius Horoscope July 2022

Aquarius horoscope July 2022, space man

Inner Activist

Mars is the combative planet and, as July begins, Mars remains in Aries and your communication sector. There could be things that you have to say as July gets underway. If you’re feeling cross, frustrated or hard done by, it’s going to be hard to stay quiet.

Mars only stays in Aries until the 5th but, on the 2nd, Mars clashes with power planet Pluto in Capricorn. This is a combustible planetary combination when tempers can flare and people take a stand. You might be caught up in the midst of whatever’s going on.

You could decide to take on the authorities or channel your inner activist. You may not fit easily into the status quo and your rebellious nature could be fired up. Perhaps, you meet someone early in July who’s angry, driven and ready for action. Or, perhaps that person is you.

Be aware that Mars and Pluto coming together are potentially violent so choose your battles wisely and carefully.

A Gentler Pace

Also this month, there’s a gentler pace of life behind the scenes. This is due to the fact that the Sun’s in the caring water sign Cancer until the 22nd. Plus, communication planet Mercury’s here from the 5th to the 19th. Cancer rules your work and health sector. It’s about your lifestyle, your daily habits and routines that work for you.

Try and find a steady pace in your life and up your level of self-care. There’s so much going on out in the big wide world. Ensure that you start by looking after yourself before deciding what you can do to help others.

This is important because Cancer rules the sector of your horoscope that’s linked to service and being of service to others. If you’re true to your Aquarius archetype, society matters to you and you often play a key role within an environmental, social or humanitarian role.

Work and routine may feel more relaxed for you once lovely Venus graces the star sign Cancer and your work and health sector from the 18th onwards. This would be a good time to focus on teamwork and ensure you have a creative group of people around you. Also, a time to reach out to health professionals or healers.

Be supportive to your colleagues and associates and ask for help and advice in return. Allow things to flow and do the best for your health. Having people who care for you deeply may be the best form of medicine.

Full Moon/Hidden Themes

This month’s Full Moon takes place on the 13th and cuts across the Cancer/Capricorn axis of the zodiac. This could be a stand-out date when the themes of the month are crystallised or revealed.

You may clearly see who’s for you and who’s against you. Pluto is involved in the Full Moon and in Capricorn, this can indicate a secret enemy or someone in authority who’s a loose cannon.

It may be a time when you recognise that you need to take a step back or close the door on your past. Sometimes saying no is what’s necessary.

On a practical level, the Full Moon may reveal insights about your work or a contract. Here too, you may decide to remove yourself from a tense situation. Events on or around the 18th-20th could prove pivotal.

Love & Passion

There’s a shift in pace as the Sun changes star sign on the 22nd. The Sun leaves watery Cancer and enters fiery Leo. The Sun joins talk planet Mercury here, as Mercury enters Leo on the 19th.

Leo is your relationship sector. Therefore, once the Sun is Leo, you’re right to prioritise your one-to-one’s, both personal and professional. Let another person take the lead, for example, and turn to people in your life who inspire and uplift you.

This could be a peak month for love too. For example, you might meet someone when lovely Venus is in Gemini and your romance sector up until the 18th. Whatever’s going on for you personally, this is a positive time to seek fun and enjoyment in life. Children, lovers and playmates are where fulfilment lies.

Planets in Leo can take a relationship to the next level and there’s a New Moon here on the 28th, a symbol of new beginnings. It’s a positive New Moon to initiate a conversation or heart-to-heart. New Moons are the time to set your intentions, to seed something new in your life.

This New Moon could see a love relationship take off and fast. Plus, on the same day as the New Moon, big planet Jupiter turns retrograde in another fire sign Aries. This is your communication sector and one conversation could help a relationship develop or move fast.

Jupiter represents luck and favours risk-taking, playing big, having self belief, trust, hope & faith. Fire signs are great for taking action, being motivated and spontaneous. The 23rd & 31st are packed full of opportunity as is the 28th.

Look out for the person who can give you exactly what you need. Be inspired by others, reach out to people and make successful connections. The end of July is the perfect time to give and receive without holding back.

The Uranus Factor

As a Sun Aquarius, you have two ruling planets, sensible Saturn and rebellious Uranus. Saturn could be a steadying influence this month in your star sign Aquarius. The same can’t be said of your co-ruler Uranus.

The end of the month is the time when you’re likely to hear Uranus’ clarion call. This is because, on the 26th, Uranus teams up with the karmic north node in Taurus. This combination can trigger the wheel of destiny turning as change kicks in.

Uranus is currently in Taurus and your home and family sector. You may feel restless or rootless with this influence. Or, perhaps, you’re on the move literally. You’re changing and it’s going to be hard to stay still in one place.

Also, Mars is in Taurus from the 5th onwards where it remains until August 20th. You could be pulled back towards the past at the end of July. Or, recognise that the themes of the past are catching up with you.

Power Clash

The start of July could be a time of conflict or aggravation. This has a lot to do with what’s happening with the planet Mars representing passion and anger. Mars is in Aries up until the 5th, the star sign at the base of your horoscope. This puts a strong emphasis on your home and family.

On the 2nd, Mars clashes with Pluto in your star sign Capricorn and this is potentially a combustible and temperamental combination. This could indicate you’ve got the builders in and life is noisy. Or, perhaps you’re trying to sell or buy a property and you’re up against tough competition or opposition.

In some cases, this could trigger a rift with a family member, a tenant or someone else who comes in and out of your home. It’s tempestuous so try not to get overly fired up if there’s an issue close to home.

On the other hand, if there’s something you feel strongly about, this is the time to push things forward and fight for your rights. Any decisions made this month may be final.

The Lives of Others

Also, you may sense a shift in some of your relationships this month. This is because of the emphasis on your opposite star sign Cancer. The Sun’s here until the 22nd and talk planet Mercury’s in Cancer from the 5th to the 19th.

Other people are undoubtedly important in your life right now and this may be for different reasons. It may not always be easy taking a step back and letting someone else take the lead but that might be what needs to happen, perhaps around the 18th-20th. Alternatively, you might be low in energy or need other people to look after you.

Also, there’s a possibility that not everyone will agree with you or you with them. Those potential clashes mentioned at the start of your horoscope could continue on or off until the Sun leaves Cancer. Steer away from people who drain your energy and move closer towards people who support you.

The Full Moon on the 13th is likely to be a pivotal moment regarding your one-to-ones, whether personal or professional. This month’s Full Moon falls in your star sign Capricorn, so trust your intuition and listen to your emotions.

Pluto is once again involved. Therefore, the Full Moon could coincide with an ending or a door closing. One way or another it’s an ideal time to make a key decision about a relationship situation.

On the 18th, Venus takes up the relationship baton and graces your love zone until mid-August. This could be a loving time for your one-to-one’s, especially if you’re in a relationship or you’ve recently met someone and it’s a kind and caring vibe.

When Venus is in your opposite star sign, you’re always wise to get the right people on your side. Be around people you trust and create mutually-beneficial and supportive partnerships in your life.

Money Matters

Money matters are under the cosmic spotlight towards the latter part of the month. This is because the Sun is shining bright in Leo and your joint finance sector from the 22nd onwards. Plus, the Sun joins talk planet Mercury in Leo. Mercury enters this sector of your horoscope on the 19th.

Therefore, this would be a great time in the month to talk money and finances and get things sorted out. If you’re pushing for a property move or negotiating family finances, the best dates to get things moving are the 23rd & 31st. This planetary combination is good for sharing resources with family and pooling expenses.

Plus, the New Moon on the 28th falls in Leo and is a great date to set your intentions around money, launch a project or start something new. A New Moon is a symbol of new beginnings.

You could be asked to do a presentation on money, decide to talk to your bank manager or a financial expert. One way or another, it’s the right time to be improving your financial situation and boosting your earnings. Joint ventures in particular are well-starred.

This has got a lot to do with the fact that lucky Jupiter is in Aries and active during the last week of July. Jupiter turns retrograde in Aries and your home and family sector on the same day as the New Moon, the 28th.

Sometimes, this indicates a change in fortune. Yet, Jupiter’s a positive influence and its energy is intense and channelled when it switches direction. Jupiter encourages you to take a risk, play big and to have hope and faith that life’s moving you in the right direction.

Saying Yes

Jupiter is the planet linked to luck and Taurus is the sector of your horoscope linked to speculation. Action planet Mars is in Taurus from the 5th onwards and you may be fired up checking out new ways to make money.

On the 26th, the planet of change Uranus teams up with the karmic north node, also in Taurus. This combination can trigger the wheel of destiny turning. Uranus is the planet linked to wins but also losses. It’s high-risk stakes.

Be aware of this but do take a punt and say yes to a door that opens, a new opportunity. This may be linked to children, a creative project, love or some other idea or event that grabs hold of you and won’t let go. It’s intriguing and exciting astrology to end the month of July.
