There has been strong energy brewing in our cosmic skies since Eclipse Season began at the end of May. it seems that on a collective level, we have all been moving through a period of transformation and growth.
This time period may have created feelings of intensity, uncertainty, and excitement as to what lies ahead. This mix of emotions may also have us feeling a little all over the place.
As we welcome the new month of July, we may still feel this energy lingering. We are still coming down from the energies of the Eclipses, plus July also brings a few cosmic alignments of its own that encourage us to push past some fears and find a new sense of motivation and confidence.
While this energy lingers in the first part of the month especially, July also offers some sweet surrender too. It is definitely not as intense as June and brings some beautiful energies including the opening of the Sirius Gateway and the fated alignment of the two cosmic lovers, Venus and Mars.
As we get to the midpoint of the month, things begin to smooth and soften. We may feel more clarity wherever we have landed. We may feel stronger, more supported, and more confident in our journey ahead.
July offers some beautiful energies that we can work with, to guide you through the energies of July, try the Cosmic Healing Meditation, which has been designed specifically for the energies of the month.
Here is an outline of the astrology for July 2021 and how you can work with the energies-
July 1-4: T-Square with Mars, Uranus, and Saturn
June has been a challenging month due to the Eclipses and the increasing number of planets entering retrograde. The first few days of July seem to continue this intensity as we now have Mars coming into a T-Square with Saturn and Uranus. This is a potentially challenging alignment that can bring up frustrations and tensions. It can also trigger feelings of anger and make us feel restless. On the flipside however, we can also use these energies to connect to the fearless warrior within. Whenever Mars is active like this, we can tap into this energy to find our confidence and strength, and to remember that there is nothing we can’t handle. Mars can trigger us, but it can also help us to clear and release these triggers that may be lingering due to fear or a lack of self-confidence. Observe what comes up for you over the coming days. Ask yourself the question – If I felt no fear, what would I do? And see how the answer may bring clarity and greater awareness.
July 3-7 Sirius Gateway
Riding on the back of this intense T-Square alignment is the beautiful opening of the Sirius Gateway! Sirius is a fixed star and at this time of year, it aligns with our Sun, opening the gateway and allowing high-frequency energies to beam down to Earth. Sirius is believed to be a portal to higher realms, it is also home to Sirian beings that are known for their technological advancements and psychic abilities. In modern astrology, Sirius also represents freedom. All of this energy makes the Sirius Gateway a wonderful time for intuitive development, to deepen your spiritual practice, to work on tech projects, and to feel free in expressing yourself. More on the Gateway energies here.
July 9- Cancer New Moon
The Cancer New Moon carries similar energy to the T-Square we were working with at the start of the month. You may notice similar themes or perhaps issues from a week or ago needing your attention. While we may also feel a little restless and irritable around the time of this New Moon, there is a soft frequency shining through too. Cancer energy supports us in nourishing ourselves and practicing self-care. This is a time to feel at home within your mind, body, and soul, no matter what has graced your path. Keep your attention here. Align yourself with all that feels comforting, soothing, and peaceful. Read more on this here.
July 12- Mercury Trine Jupiter
Feel like you have been extra patient these last few weeks? Well, your patience is about to be rewarded! If you have been negotiating a contract, dealing with paperwork issues, or navigating the aftermath of some miscommunications, there is some ease to be found under this alignment.
July 13- Venus Conjunct Mars
The magical and fated alignment of the two cosmic lovers is today! This is a rare alignment where we see Venus and Mars come together in unity. Venus and Mars are considered the two cosmic lovers, their energy brings the union of the yin and the yang or the masculine and the feminine. The meeting of Venus and Mars can instigate and accelerate the meeting of soulmates and twin flames. A soulmate is anyone sent to help awaken your soul to a new level, so watch for any significant encounters that cross your path at this time. More on this here.
July 15- Chiron Retrograde
Chiron is an asteroid known as the wounded healer. It is currently in the sign of Aries, and will enter retrograde today where it will remain until December 19. When Chiron goes retrograde, we are encouraged to look back over any past wounds that we are yet to deal with or address. When Chiron’s energy is involved, it is not so much about healing the wound for the sake of perfection, rather it is about gaining the wisdom that the wound has left with us. It is this wisdom that can help us to connect with our own inner “wounded healer” and allow us to use our wounds as a force of strength, rather than weakness.
July 22- Sun in Leo
Out of watery Cancer Season and into fiery, creative, Leo Season we go! This will feel like a welcome shift. After wading through our deeper thoughts and feelings and recharging our batteries, we will feel ready to get back out into the world and seek new, creative, and exciting opportunities.
July 23- Aquarius Full Moon
We have two Aquarius Full Moons back to back this year, and this is the first. You can think of these two Full Moons as working in harmony with one another, so whatever unfolds at this Full Moon is likely to be replayed next month, or perhaps whatever is illuminated under this Full Moon will only be part of the story and the rest will be delivered to us under the second Aquarius Full Moon in August. This July Aquarius Full Moon carries the energy of transformation and creativity. It seems we may be encouraged to step out of our comfort zones and embrace a new way of being. More to come on this soon.
July 28- Retrograde Jupiter Returns to Aquarius
Jupiter has been retrograde in Pisces since June 20, but now it backtracks into Aquarius. Jupiter will remain in Aquarius until December. This is a subtle energy shift, but it may inspire us to think about community and the people we choose to surround ourselves with. More on this here.
