July Edition Astro Babble ~ Your Personal Horoscope Included!
“To thine own self be true.” Hamlet
Feeling Crabby? Well, this is the time of Cancer the Crab—the watery, emotional, sensitive moon-mother, which can have us all feeling a bit moody! Mars, also in Cancer, is finishing his standoff with Pluto (in Capricorn), which will ease as the month continues. There is also friction happening between the cardinal signs (Cancer, Libra, Aries and Capricorn), nothing major, but still, enough to add some irritation to the mix.
This month, be true to yourself, don’t sweat the small stuff and whenever possible, go with the flow. August is going to be a doozy astrologically--hello lunar and solar eclipses!—so take this month to chill, regroup and secure your foundations.
Your July Horoscope:
Aries: Feeling the rub? This month’s friction between the cardinal signs (this includes you) may have you feeling a bit out-of-sorts. This is especially true on the home front. You’re itching to communicate and make your truth known. Great, but pick your battles, Aries! Rome wasn’t built in a day, and so it goes for you now. Take small steps to resolving conflicts. One step builds on the other. #Patience
Taurus: The Full Moon in fellow earth sign Capricorn, adds some extra yummy to your house of travel, expansion and higher learning. Embrace the momentum and step out of old comfort zones to fully engage in opportunities to expand your world. If you’re feeling shy, Taurus, I will remind you that your higher purpose is aligned with your current direction. No need to reinvent the wheel. #Service
Gemini: Venus, the Goddess of Love and Beauty, shines her benevolent light on you all month. Venus is the planet that inspired the childhood rhyme: “I wish I may, I wish I might, get the wish I wish tonight.” You also have lucky planet Jupiter, and the new moon in positive alignment. Time to wish upon a star, Gemini! If there’s no magic happening, you need to regroup and consider new directions. #Wishes
Cancer: When you were a kid, did you dream about running away and joining the circus? Dream realized, Cancer! In ring one--dancing elephants! In ring two, the amazing flying trapeze family! In ring three, watch the tight-rope walker balance across the wire! Did I mention there’s no safety net? You’re juggling a lot balls, so when feeling overwhelmed, step back and enjoy the show. ‘Cause you are the: #RingMaster
Leo: Recently, I had a party conversation with some fellow Leos (Sun, Moon or Ascendant). We admired each other’s outfits and choice of cocktail. We discussed how we love our bright and optimistic Leo energy! Then, we bemoaned how we can be completely self-centered. One Leo piped up and wisely said: Yes, but we’re all evolving! With the New moon in your sign, this is your month of: #Evolution
Virgo: Your stars are asking you to dig deeper regarding: What do you want, really, really want. Yes, this is an anthem from the Spice Girls (Love them!), but also your siren’s call now. When was the last time you checked in with yourself, and asked that question? Your desires are important and the foundation of what you create next. Take the road less traveled and do not doubt yourself. Your Ace is your: #Uniqueness
Libra: Brand new you? The cosmic vibe between this month and June are so energetically different—in a positive way--you may be asking yourself: What happened? Time to believe in the new opportunities coming your way! You’re still working out details, and dealing with a few challenges, but all-in-all you’ve got this. Stop looking over your shoulder, waiting for some random shoe to drop. #Transformation
Scorpio: This month, look at your life as a game of chess. You have all the pieces, now you just need to figure out the best way to move them forward. You are a brilliant strategist, Scorpio! Do not hesitate to use your gift of deeper insight, as you will need to look beyond the obvious to win the game. Timing-wise, before July 20th is the best time to make your moves. Your superpower now is your: #Intuition
Sagittarius: You’re like a racehorse, at the starting gate, chomping at the bit to make your run. Alas, the stars are giving you mixed messages, a cosmic push-pull of, one minute you’re ready, then the next, you’re not so sure. Taskmaster Saturn continues its retrograde in your sign, making sure you’re in tip-top condition before your race. No need to retire to greener pastures, just find a new rhythm. #ThoroughBred
Capricorn: There’s a Full Moon in your sign this month…funny thing about full moons, they illuminate everything!--the good and the not so good. Good: You’re feeling empowered and making great strides in your career. Challenges: You’re negotiating a delicate balance between your personal and work life. Others may want more from you than you’re willing to give. Time for strong boundaries. #Balance
Aquarius: Time for a quiz…quick, no thinking, name the three things that you the most make you happy? What did you come up with? With lucky planet Jupiter and Mercury and Venus all happily aligned, you’re being stimulated to think big and explore all possibilities. I don’t like to make predictions, but…I get the feeling that happiness is just around your corner. Pay attention. Believe. Be Brave. #Happiness
Pisces: All about Neptune! Neptune is your ruling orb and it’s been in your sign for more than a few years. So what’s different, now, you ask? Neptune is in retrograde motion until November, which may have you feeling like you’re swimming in some very deep waters. Neptune is the God of the Universal Sea, representing dreams, emotions, intuitions, and the imagination. Dive in, and swim! #Mermaid/Merman
