Astrology Forecast for the Week of July 4, 2022 – July 10, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of July 4, 2022 through July 10, 2022 features 3 major planetary aspects (Mercury sextile Mars, Mercury square Jupiter, Sun sextile Uranus) and Mars moves into Taurus and Mercury moves into Cancer.

So, the first week of July is pretty busy. Let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

This week we have two planetary sign changes – Mercury moves out of Gemini and into Cancer, and energetic Mars grinds to a halt as he enters slow and steady Taurus.

Mercury in Cancer

On Tuesday, Mercury moves into Cancer. The sign of Cancer is ruled by the ever-changing Moon, and with Mercury in the sign of the crab, our thoughts may shift frequently and may be governed by our current emotional experiences. Since Mercury has no essential dignity in Cancer, you may experience constantly shifting emotional experiences, and you may have difficulty expressing your feelings because Cancer is considered a mute sign. Additionally, Cancer is associated with home and family, so you may find conversations with relatives and an increased focus on your home and current living experiences.

Mars in Taurus

Mars doesn’t care for the sign of Taurus, because it’s sooooo SLOW! Mars likes fast impulsive movement and prefers to act upon intuitive hunches that lead the warrior god to victory.  The earthy realm of Taurus is concerned about the real world, and Mars would prefer not to be bogged down my practical sensibilities.  Why?  Because it’s boring, and Mars hates being bored.

However, even though Mars prefers to be elsewhere, he still needs to perform. In Taurus, Mars is capable and consistent, and while Mars is in the sign of the bull, it’s an excellent time to focus on projects that bring tangible results. Furthermore, Mars in Taurus is extremely stubborn and becomes easily agitated if it feels thwarted by others.  You may need to stay mindful and be as proactive as possible.

Daily Breakdown

Monday, July 4, 2022

Happy Independence Day if you live in the United States. We start the week off with the Moon moving through dutiful Virgo. Virgo is about life management and what you can do to bring order into your life. It’s an excellent day to clean up loose ends, focus on health-related matters, and even get a good workout. During the evening hours, the Moon applies by trine to Uranus.  An unexpected surprise may make your day!

Tuesday, July 5, 2022

After Mars and Mercury switch signs, they form a lovely sextile during the early morning hours.  Mercury sextile Mars is an extremely active aspect, and you can use this energy to focus on projects or objectives that need a boost of energy. You may feel more confident and assertive than you ordinarily do, and it’s easier to convey your thoughts and opinions to others. Mercury sextile Mars is also great if you need to debate an issue.

Wednesday, July 6, 2022

The Moon spends the day moving through fair-and-balanced Libra. It’s an excellent day to focus on relationship matters, especially if you need to repair one. This is also a good day to focus on resolving legal issues or to file legal documents.

Thursday, July 7, 2022

The Moon continues to move through Libra and forms a beneficial trine to Saturn.  It’s a good day to focus on business matters or do the work necessary to level up. Later this evening, be on guard, because the Moon squares Pluto and intense emotions may surface that are hard to control. Try to work through your feelings than reacting to them.

Friday, July 8, 2022

On Friday, the Moon moves through turbulent Scorpio and forms a nasty opposition to Mars shortly before dawn. You may feel agitated and easily annoyed by other peoples behaviors or attitudes. To add insult to injury, the Moon then opposes Uranus and then squares Saturn. Expect the unexpected and you may go through periods of self-doubt.

Saturday, July 9, 2022

Mercury squares Jupiter in Aries. Your overall attitude will be positive and it’s an excellent time to make long-term plans and goals. Mercury square Jupiter is excellent for business transactions and contractual negotiations. Just make sure you read the fine print before signing the dotted line.

Sunday, July 10, 2022

We close the week with the Sun sextile Uranus, which is a pleasant and harmonious aspect. It’s an excellent day to break free from the restraints of your usual routine and do something exciting and outside the box. You can also use this energy to make changes in your life, especially if you feel like your life has been in a rut.

See you next week!

Astrology Forecast for the Week of June 20, 2022 – June 26, 2022

The astrology forecast for the week of June 20, 2022 through June 26, 2022 features two major planetary aspects (Mercury sextile Jupiter, Venus trine Pluto) and two sign changes – the Sun moving into Cancer and Venus moving into social Gemini.

All the astrological activity happens at the beginning of the week, so let’s dive right in.

Cosmic Overview

The Sun moves into the sign of Cancer, and summer in the Northern Hemisphere (winter in the Southern Hemisphere) officially begins on Tuesday at 5:14 AM EST. Cancer season reflects the time of year where we can get in touch with our emotions, repair toxic familial dynamics, and create a secure foundation to build our lives on.

The Moon is the ruler of Cancer, and she sits in fiery, and pushes us towards taking charge of our lives by leaving the past in the rear-view mirror and focusing on building and expanding our lives. In the Cancer season chart (called an ingress chart in astrologese), the Moon applies to a lovely conjunction with Jupiter, and then she trines Mercury. During Cancer season, the chart instructs us to embrace the future, overcome obstacles and limitations, and create networks that help us level up.

Take advantage of this summer season and prepare for a rebirth!

Daily Breakdown

Monday, June 20, 2022

We start the week with a lovely Mercury-Jupiter sextile.  Your thoughts will mainly be positive, and you will notice your mind is sharp and can see the potentials and possibilities that will help you create the life you want to live. Mercury sextile Jupiter is excellent for business activities, and helpful in contract negotiations. Use this energy wisely, because anything you put your mind to will usually be successful.

Tuesday, June 21, 2022

Besides the Sun moving into Cancer and the official start of summer (winter in the southern hemisphere), Venus forms a beneficial trine to Pluto in Capricorn.  It’s a powerful day on the relationship front, because if you look within, you will receive profound insight into your relationships, and what you can do to make them better.  Try not to be overwhelmed by any emotional experiences you may have, because they will ultimately be transformative.

Wednesday, June 22, 2022

On Wednesday, Venus moves out of Taurus and into social Gemini. Whereas Venus in Taurus needs reliable structure, Venus in Gemini needs experiences and plenty of them.  While Venus is in Gemini, you will want to have fun and need people to evoke your intellectual curiosities. You will have a strong urge to be social and connect with as many people as possible. Communicating, in order to relate with others, is a necessity.

Thursday, June 23, 2022

The Moon moves into Taurus, the sign of her exaltation. It’s an excellent day to focus on your finances and put a viable fiscal plan in motion. Since Taurus is a sign associated with pleasure, it’s also a great day for doing something you enjoy.

Friday, June 24, 2022

The Moon continues its monthly trek through Taurus and forms a conjunction with Uranus. It’s best to expect the unexpected, and plans may change at a moment’s notice. Try to avoid acting impulsively, and pause to think things out before you act. You may also find that others easily annoy you, so avoid people that push your buttons.

Saturday, June 25, 2022

The Moon spends its last day in earthy Taurus, and forms a tense square to Saturn during the morning hours. You may go through waves of self-doubt, and people may trigger your insecurities.  Try to push away negative thoughts if they surface.  The good news is that the Moon trines Pluto later Saturday afternoon, and this beneficial trine may help you get your mojo back.

Sunday, June 26, 2022

We close the week with the Moon moving through Gemini, conjoining Venus and forming a sextile to Jupiter in Aries. It’s an excellent day to leave behind the problems and responsibilities of the real world and have a little bit of good fun.  You will be optimistic, and you will enjoy the company of others. The good news is that this energy will continue through the bulk of next week.

See you then!
