Astrological Happenings for July 2009

July's hot temperatures begin to heat things up in our relationships with family, friends, and romantic interests. Independent Uranus starts the month with his retrograde journey on 07/01, and we may find ourselves craving more freedom from our existing connections, to do some personal soul searching. We'll be looking for new inspiration and change in our lives, and we set sail on an inner journey to find it. Mercury enters Cancer 07/03, and subconsciously we're sending out mixed signals to loved ones. Emotional connections may become confusing, because while we crave a deeper love than what we are receiving, we may show our dissatisfaction if it's not what we thought it would be - and rebel in the opposite direction. Emotional turbulence may be likely if we all aren't on the same page. It's another form of 'push-me, pull you' behavior. We want closeness, but as we attract it, we pull away from it. Shifts in our attitudes will more than likely introduce us to new individuals, while loved ones might feel left out in the cold. This is a critical time to express what is internalizing to avoid any miscommunications. It's also a time to get in touch with our higher selves, especially for what we aren't receiving from others.

Venus enters Gemini 07/05, We're wanting to reconnect with the outside world, and we're using our creativity and confidence to reach goals. Blending friends of old and new, help steer our course of direction. A Lunar Eclipse and Full moon in Capricorn brings full light to our search (as well as an inner sight) in more grounded forms, while providing us with the stepping stones to secure our findings. Mars in Gemini 07/11, We are now extending ourselves outside of the circle (and outside of ourselves), careless as to what others might think. A force rises in expressing ourselves, and if not controlled, it can become aggressive and antagonizing. Our communication skills out-shadow alternative methods. We're determined to make things happen now. Ideas that we have been internalizing begin to burst, bringing life and sparkle back into our eyes! Relationships and social engagements begin merging once again, as we express our objectives. We are magnetized to those who wish us well and bring out the best in us, and we do not have much guilt by leaving others behind. Great vibes for hard sales, cold calls, business advertising and promotion.

Mercury enters Leo 07/17, Our mind encourages us to rise and take control. We're enjoying new attention and fresh adventures. We're at a place mentally, where we do not acknowledge fear, and we dare to take chances, to get what we want. New Moon and Solar Eclipse in Cancer 07/21, A new emotional phase, to nurture and give love to others, but also to ourselves. Some of us may be much more sensitive to this energy, and privatize what we are experiencing. Other could feel more comfortable and willing to share the love, unconditionally. Whatever we have fought and worked hard for, we will find ourselves very protective over, whether that be winning a heart of another, a new position at our work, or possibly securing our own sacred space. Sun enters Leo 07/22, We're confident and comfortable about what we are accomplishing, and we shine. We'll be thinking much more serious about the way we are looking to others, and we will either do a physical or fashion makeover - to get noticed by a love interest or by our superiors at work.

Venus enters Cancer 07/31 and she motivates us to expect more compassion and love from other's, to replenish what we have provided. Even though there is much activity around us, we may secretly find ways to seclude ourselves from others, to nurture our own soul and inner child! This energy turned inward can be a tremendous force of movement in the work field. Focus on what we're doing, and not on what others are doing or saying to keep this vibration fueled! Imagination and spending time with favorable childhood memories feed us new creative sparks! Make this month a good month!
