Astro Babble ~ July Edition! Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“I heard someone whisper: ‘Please adore me’, and when I looked, the moon had turned to gold! Blue Moon! Now I’m no longer alone, without a dream in my heart.” Hart and Rodgers
The Astro Theme for July is “Going with the Flow!” With a planetary stellium in the element of Water, now is a time to attune and commune with the fluid and ever-changing element of H20. Water is Yin and feminine; it’s receptive and internally focused. Water is the Moon, Neptune, and the realms of soul. It is emotional, intuitive and feeling based; it is a beyond the mundane, the practical realm of every day life, ushering us into the watery depths of dreams, imagination, creativity. This cosmic water won't, unfortunately, water your lawn during the hot month of July, but it will water your soul!
Tips for working with Water Energy:
--Eat Juicy Fruits and Vegetables: Watermelon, cantaloupe, watercress, cucumber, grapes, tomato, coconut, peaches, plums, lettuce, to name just a few!
--Take time for reflection, and communing with your inner self.
--Keep a Dream Journal, to track and explore your inner landscape.
--Spend time in--Actual Water! Swimming, hot-tubs, long baths, river-rafting, boating, long walks on the beach…whatever floats your boat!
--Drink plenty of water. It hydrates—body, mind and spirit.
--Relax and let go with a nurturing massage.
--Explore aromatherapy and flower essences as a way of attuning to your deeper self.
--Add cool tones of blue and green to your palate and wardrobe-- some Feng Shui/Color H20!
July Astro Events
Saturn Retrograde in Scorpio: Saturn continues it’s deep dive back into the watery realm of Scorpio through the Summer. This event focuses on completing what you have unfinished, especially over the last two-and-half years.

Dig in and begin to create new structures that will serve you well when Saturn returns to Sagittarius in the Fall!
Blue Moon in Aquarius, July 31st: “Nature is beginning to come alive and enchantment in is the air.” Color me indigo—it’s a Blue Moon this month!

This Blue Moon is in the sign of Aquarius, illuminating the energies of the Age of Aquarius, heightening the desire to connect to your greater spiritual community and bring forth the highest and best energy for all. Time to believe in all possibilities and experience your golden light!
Your July Horoscope
Aries: You’re a true spiritual warrior, Aries, and this month you’ll want to dust-off your ju-jitsu/aikido/karate-kid/tai chi skills! Being a super ninja requires flexibility, and knowing how to move-through any energetic flow—and this month it’s watery (not your natural element)! This is not a time to fight, instead cultivate and negotiate. Consider your life a spiritual, art form and the force will be with you!
Taurus: You, Taurus are more lover than fighter, but this month, you may find yourself digging in your hoofs around what you want! With many planets in your compatible element of water, you’re looking at what truly nurtures you--your earthy, sensual, pleasure-seeking self! Time to water your garden. What makes your soul sing? This is the question to ponder now. #ListeningToMy
Gemini: Two steps forward, one step back! Welcome to the Cosmic Hokey Pokey, Gemini! Don’t expect all your dots to connect this month, especially around money matters. Don’t be discouraged. Now is a time to keep the “big picture” in mind, even if it’s not all manifesting quite yet. Don’t sweat the small stuff, instead, why not take a trip, a well-deserved vacation? It’s just what the doctor ordered. #PatienceIsMyNew
Cancer: You’re the caretaker of the zodiac, Cancer, but this month you may be rethinking the “My Needs” vs. “Your Needs” equation. With Full and New Moons in your houses of self and relationship (respectively), you’re in a process of re-evaluating and rebalancing what’s important to you. Kick-in the Blue Moon in your house of transformation, and well, let just say—there’s no seaweed growing under your claws. #CaretakingMySoul
Leo: You Leo, love attention and the spotlight, but this month, you may find yourself feeling more private and internally focused than usual. With much planetary energy in your water houses—representing the inner-self, soul, dreams and transformation-- you’re turning your light inward, seeking more inner-reflection and contemplation. This is fertile ground! Give space for your dreams, and all else is gravy! #TreadingSoftlyFeelsNice
Virgo: You Virgo, tend towards the analytical and all things real and practical. Well, this month, Universal Mercury (the Messenger of the Gods--and your ruling planet!) is adding a dose of intuition and insight to your world. Time to balance your intellectual side with your more creative and yes, intuitive side! You will be happily surprised at the results, and results are important to you. Be open and trust. #TheProofIsInThePudding
Libra: “Hello, I’m a Libra, and I’m a people pleaser.” Well, that’s so yesterday, because this month--you’re moving on. Planetary stimulation in your house of family and roots is stirring the pot, around the expectations and needs of others. This is an opportunity to set boundaries and not take any “guff”! Be sweet to yourself, and nurture your creative pursuits. Your true strength lies in being vulnerable and following your heart! #SweetSpot
Scorpio: You’re getting a watery boost this month around your career, your presence in the world, and your reputation. Consider how you want to present yourself now, because it will have impact in coming years. Also on tap--your finances. Time to restructure and reconsider how you want to invest and go forward. In all regards, you’re putting in place more secure structures that will serve you well. #Considering
Sagittarius: You, Sag, are a Truth Seeker, and this month you may find yourself becoming a Truth Speaker! Pass the talking stick, this is your time to communicate what you know and what you feel, without worrying about how it’s received. Sag’s get a bad rap for being too big, too expressive, but that’s only to those who don’t have the time to listen, explore or engage. Don’t hesitate to share your insights. #FutureBlogger?
Capricorn: You have Major Lunar Movement (MLM) this month, Cap, with both the Full Moon in your sign, and the New Moon in your opposite sign of Cancer. Lunar energies are deep, reflective and intuitive. The MLM offers the opportunity to reflect on your deepest values, especially around relationships. What’s important now is self-worth. Time to value you, and not hesitate to express what you need! #EmbracingMyLunarSide
Aquarius: Blue Moon Baby! Blue Moon’s don’t happen often, and this one at month’s end—in YOUR sign--is significant, bringing forth your spiritual light and great glimmers of new possibilities. (And it’s likely that you, Aquarius, will be feeling the vibrations all month.) Time to consider your impact in the world, and how you can be a beacon of light. It’s all a part of the Age of Aquarius—which you’re big part of! #IMakeADifference
Pisces: You’re getting a nice boost from planets in your natural element of water. Sweet! At the same time, you may find yourself negotiating the parameters of what’s “real” and what’s not. This is especially true in your relationships, as you’re working through past illusions to see what’s true. They do say that Cinderella was a Pisces, but this princess/prince isn’t waiting for her/his Prince Charming! #CleaningMyRoseColoredGlasses
