Thursday, July 1
Moon in dynamic Aries fuels enthusiasm. Yet Mars, Moon’s present ruler, opposes stalwart Saturn, who may make us stop in our tracks. In the face of an apparent setback—which may simply be our own negative self-talk—avoid locking into frustration. Instead, pause, review your course, and regroup for a less direct, more strategic approach.
At 2:11 pm (5:11 ET), Moon reaches her Fourth Quarter, precipitating a week of winding down, and facilitating the attitude of release that will help transmute frustration if it arises.
At 10-11 Aries, the Sabian symbol says:
THE RULER OF A NATION… The power resulting formal of the collective desire for order… the appearance of the personal ego as a central manifestation of a type of ‘order’, which transcends and seeks to rule the emotional and instinctual drives of the individual person… the ruler at this social, political and mental level of integration is often the one who is being ruled by collective pressures… Nevertheless, a desire for a larger type of integration has now emerged. It’s no longer biological-impulsive or emotional-personal, but social-collective and institutional.
Afternoon favors decluttering, taking care of bureaucracy (that we started moving on before mid-May) and low-key organizational activities.
Spiritual warrior forces, please guide me strategically and direct me persistently to achieve the best level in my current phase of evolution now.
Friday, July 2
Sandwiched between yesterday’s Mars-Saturn opposition and tomorrow’s square from the red planet to Uranus, the natural restlessness of Moon in Aries is brought into relief. Put a night on the town or a dramatic gesture on hold ‘til next weekend and opt for quiet, healing actions that channel the harmonies from Mars to Chiron and Moon to Mercury. Consult a psychic, therapist or wise loved one; journal, attend a self-help group, connect with nature (not extreme sports), meditate on forgiveness.
At 9:15 pm (12:15 am ET), Moon goes VOC.
Infinite love is working in this situation, bringing forth only good, here and now.
Saturday, July 3
Upstart Mars squares rebel Uranus, creating a sense of frustration that may erupt as willful action.
Creativity is flowing, and in the midst of our current fixation with freedom, Sun in Cancer contacts Saturn the builder, directing us in lasting results. This is not the best time for PR or other activities requiring charm and harmony.
Avoid unnecessary confrontation and fire hazards, save road trips for another weekend, keep a low profile, and take a quiet break to declutter both space and mind.
Morning is the best time for spiritual activities, people connections and promotional efforts that can’t be left for another day.
The One Force acting is Spirit, who acts in kind, balanced, foresightful ways, now and always.
Sunday, July 4
We’re still on the doorstep of recent, tense aspects. It’s best to keep a low profile, avoid crowds, and take special care if using fireworks.
Moon is exalted in Taurus, supporting enjoyment of nature, music and a good meal with dear ones.
Sun squares wounded-healer Chiron, favoring work on healing or journaling, or participation in an online prayer or self-help group.
Moon’s conjunction to Uranus will bring the theme of independence home. The sign of the bull emphasizes freedom in our values and finances. What does this mean to you?
Consulting my heart, I connect with my best prosperity, and it naturally materializes here and now.
Monday, July 5
Moon in Taurus, sign of her exaltation, trines powerful Pluto. This harmony favors taking action for business, work or investments, while a sextile from Sun to Uranus supports moving on new paths of prosperity that we began opening sometime before mid-May. Still in the weekend’s revolutionary portal, and within earshot of tomorrow’s Venus-Saturn opposition, it’s wise to go gently and avoid unnecessary confrontations.
At 6:24 pm (9:24 ET), Luna enters loquacious Gemini. Follow up on calls or emails, declutter the desk or inbox, find a short cut, or edit a letter, a presentation, or another text.
Keep a dream diary or journal on hand, as a wee-hour contact from Mercury to Neptune awakens intuition tonight.
Angels guide me, and I am receptive to their wisdom in my dreams tonight.
Tuesday, July 6
Today’s fortunate numerology of 6 brings out the prosperous, cheerful potential of Moon in communicative Gemini, making this an excellent day for personal and business communication.
However, it’s worthwhile to review now just which connections are worthy of our attention. Venus, planet of love and values, opposes serious Saturn, supporting us in taking a sober look at our patterns in relationships and finance, and answering for ourselves questions like these:
- How can we invest our time more wisely?
- What daily steps will help ground our intentions to improve our relationships or heal self-esteem?
- What actions are required to create order and wellness in our finances (taxes, budget, etc.)?
Guardian Angel (or name spirit guide/s), please direct me in the best and highest connections that I may let the rest go, here and now.
Wednesday, July 7
On this last day of Mercury retrograde’s shadow, Moon in Gemini favors following up on communications. Keep it simple, as a square from this messenger-planet to Neptune accents intuition, but can also cause confusion.
In the midst of this week’s major, challenging transits, it’s best to focus on small things we can finish or get in order. With a trine from love-planet Venus to wounded healer Chiron, we are supported in making headway in our ability to love ourselves, in forgiveness, and with reconciliation. Moon in Gemini favors using positive affirmations and mantras, a worthy investment any time, but particularly now with all that’s going on in the July sky.
Moon in Gemini goes VOC at 9:20 pm (12:20 am ET).
My kind words are doors of power that heal and free me and others now.
Thursday, July 8
At 6:51 am (9:51 ET), Moon leaves her VOC in Gemini and enters sensitive Cancer.
After seven weeks in retrograde and shadow, Mercury finally goes direct, giving a green light to begin something new. He starts his new cycle with a quincunx to Pluto, lending depth and power to our communications, favoring research, or applying boldness to connecting with others or taking care of bureaucratic issues.
Venus, planet of love, values and beauty, perfects her square to Uranus. This inspirational aspect fuels out-of-the box thinking and creativity, and can also make for unexpected changes in relationships and finance. If something unexpected comes up, try to stay out of drama, avoid rash action, and release outcomes to the divine scheme of things. Uranus acts suddenly—but if we can grin and bear it, the shake-up tends to pass quickly and things usually settle down, often into something better than they seemed to be.
In the meantime, Venus in Leo brings a luminous quality to creative expression, so we can work on our own favored art form, refine and improve our marketing strategies (with Uranus in Taurus), or beautify our garden.
I release this situation to Spirit, and only good can come from it, now and always.
Friday, July 9
We feel a kind of relief in the air, as today’s numerology of 9, the numeral of endings, helps disconnect us from the tensions of early July, and with Mercury direct, the New Moon in Cancer at the same time opens a door for beginnings.
This morning, Moon sextiles Uranus, a great aspect for doing business, working on art, reaching out to someone who inspires us, or participating in altruistic activities.
The sextile lingers into the New Moon portal, exact at 6:17 pm (9:17 ET), inviting us to align our intentions and actions in positive synchrony with the forces of change that are at play in our world. In the chart for this lunation, Moon also trines subtle Neptune, accenting compassion and opening intuitive perception.
Sample intentions that interweave this portal’s Cancerian/Uranus/Neptune themes include:
I see myself loving my family in a way that’s freeing and compassionate for them and for me.
I imagine myself relating to my family in ways that support my confidence.
I see myself free of possessiveness and secure in my unwavering connection to the divine.
I visualize myself enjoying the love of those who matter and being free of fears of rejection.
I see myself living in an inspiring space that supports my peace, happiness and success.
My will is to nurture my higher self and the higher self of others now.
I give thanks for the positive forces that prevail in all changes now.
Saturday, July 10
Today’s numerology of 1 reiterates the compassionate, intuitive energy of yesterday’s New Moon portal. Moon’s wee-hour trine to Neptune favors rising early to pray, do conscious breathing, meditate, or connect with angels, devas, buddhas and other light beings. This influence also favors publicity and telepathic connections.
Use it before 9:10 am (12:10 pm ET), when Moon opposes intense Pluto. This aspect can help us get perspective on changes in our emotional response and home that will facilitate our path of power.
The rest of the morning favors decluttering, journaling, self-healing, organizing business and finances, making a bold decision, or setting a courageous limit in support of New Moon intentions or projects.
My willingness to grow has opened me to positive spiritual forces that support my intention now.
Sunday, July 11
Intuition is strong, with Mercury reaching the anaretic degree of 29 Gemini this morning before entering the cool waters of Cancer at 1:35 pm (4:35 ET), where for the next two weeks it will promote thinking in pictures, and intuitive communication. Consult the I Ching, a medium, or your own inner voice.
Also favored this morning are spiritual activities or brunch in the garden. If you need to connect with people, do it from morning to midday, as Moon’s afternoon tensions to Saturn and Uranus limit our diplomacy quotient. They can bring our negative programs into view, and combined with a trine to Chiron, favor therapy, journaling, connecting with a self-help group and other creative, healing activities.
No negative programs can hold me, I am under the code of Love, now and always.
Monday, July 12
If you’re up very early, use Moon’s conjunction to cozy Venus for a romantic encounter, messaging your love object, or working on art. Mercury in intuitive Cancer trines Jupiter in psychic Pisces, favoring publicity, altruistic activities, and connections with light beings. Also, having an extremely pleasant swim.
Do it all before 5:29 am (8:29 ET), when Luna goes VOC in Leo.
The rest of this “casual Monday,” play table games, do crossword puzzles, or enjoy theater, a concert, sports events or opera. Tomorrow, we can catch up with tasks and projects.
My happiness cannot be limited, my peace cannot be limited, my joy cannot be limited.
Tuesday, July 13
Today we can make up for lost time, with the constructive numerology of 4, Moon in focused Virgo, and transits that favor connection.
A morning sextile from Moon to ruler Mercury, great for relationships and sales, helps us express our feelings, retain what we study and touch the emotions of others in positive ways.
And we get a major, positive transit as exuberant Venus joins passionate Mars in warm Leo, fueling the fires of romance and sex, making for luminous self-expression, and increasing the charm factor of all our interactions.
Affirmative blessing to activate sales:
Infinite good is moving through my sales and it cannot be held back or limited now!
Wednesday, July 14
This morning can be productive and exciting. Todqy’s numerology of 5, related to Mars, favors bold action.
Waning Moon in diligent Virgo harmonizes with Uranus in Taurus, sign of abundance, and Sun in sensitive Cancer. People connections go well, particularly those related to promotion, work, a service activity, or innovative financial efforts.
At 7:17 pm (10:17 ET), Moon opposes mystical Neptune in Pisces, sign of its rule; the evening favors spiritual healing, praying for others and devotional activities. At 11:46 pm (2:46 am ET), Moon goes VOC.
When you go to sleep, keep your journal or page and pen on hand in preparation for a wee-hour trine from Sun in sensitive Cancer to Neptune in Pisces, sign and planet of dreams.
I open my home to the presence of angels, and they lift my dreams to a high vibration now and throughout this night.
Thursday, July 15
Before she rises, Sun in sensitive Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces, sign of its rule. This harmony accentuates intuition and receptivity to the energy of light beings. Neptune also gets a hit from love-planet Venus. These aspects accentuate compassion, standing like angels poised to guide our inward journey as wounded-healer Chiron turns retrograde, where it will spotlight self-healing from now ‘til early December.
Those who are interested in taking this healing sojourn can send out a prayer or a undertake a small consecration ritual. A ritual could be to acquire a new journal, set up therapy sessions, find a self-help group, or figure out the meeting schedule.
Save key activities and interactions for after 7:32 am (10:32 ET), when Moon leaves her VOC and enters sociable Libra. Luna’s contacts to Jupiter and Mercury favor efforts involving justice, a court appearance, negotiation, visiting friends, romance, a hand-fasting ceremony, making love to a new partner, or taking your flame to dinner.
My intention to heal attracts perfect resources and opportunities to me now and always.
Friday, July 16
This is a morning worth rising early for. And we mean early. At 3:33 am (6:33 ET), Moon in sweet Libra trines constructive Saturn in lucid Aquarius. Prepare a negotiation, or do something related to justice, teamwork, and negotiation. Balance a checking account or clarify something related to the bank statement. Do online shopping for music, wardrobe, or home décor.
Focus on key actions and contacts before 6:17 am (9:17 ET), when Moon opposes Chiron, and then moves to quincunx Uranus. These influences favor journaling, self-healing and creativity, but they’re not so great for people connections, which again become easier after 11:00 am (1:00 pm ET).
If you want to fight for an underdog or a cause, late tonight is good for that.
The invisible force of justice is working to produce perfect results in this situation now and always.
Saturday, July 17
Moon in sociable Libra reaches her Second Quarter at 3:11 am (6:11 ET). We can take a pause to review our progress on intentions and projects seeded at last week’s New Moon.
The Sabian symbol for 25-26 Libra is:
AN EAGLE AND A WHITE DOVE CHANGE QUICKLY INTO EACH OTHER. Necessary cooperation between mind, will, spirit and heart. Power of psychological balance and compensation. Unity.
At 4:03 am (7:03 ET) Luna goes VOC, entering Scorpio at 11:38 am (2:38 ET).
At 3:46 pm (6:46 ET), Sun opposes intense Pluto, giving us a look at our hidden gifts and our need for empowerment. Shortly thereafter, Moon trines expansive Jupiter, expanding our personal sense of optimism and altruistic impulse and adding a touch of charm to our dealings with the public.
Intuitively guided, I advance on my path of power now and always.
Sunday, July 18
Today’s influences give special power to mysticism, creativity and altruism. Three quincunxes press for adjustment: first from artistic Venus to transformational Pluto, second, from expressive Mercury to structured Saturn and finally, from bold Mars to imaginative Neptune. Moon in deep Scorpio facilitates change. And today’s numerology of 9, connected to Moon’s ruler Pluto, favors transmutation, teaching, service, and donation.
Don’t waste this day on trivial pursuits. Work on healing or art, participate in or lead a spiritual retreat, reach out to someone who can use your help and knowledge, make a generous offering or take bold action to support a cause. With the Mars-Neptune connection, take special care at the wheel and save intense partying for another day.
Angels of healing, please use me as a channel of wellness, here and now and always.
Monday, July, 19
Today’s numerology of 1 favors initiating something, and today offers two great windows for progress.
At 6:30 am, Moon in bold Scorpio sextile ruler Pluto in constructive Capricorn. This is followed by a square to Venus that fuels good will and love vibrations. We can work on emotional healing, knock on a key door, close a deal, or make headway in finances. Use this energy before 9:30 am, when Moon goes VOC. Then take some down time to rest and renew.
At 2:08 pm (5:08 ET), Moon enters Sagittarius, squaring ruler Jupiter and favoring action in the archer’s realms. We can achieve tangible results in these Sagittarian pursuits:
- Be spontaneous
- Work on trade
- Promote something
- Hold a business meeting
- Lend or borrow money
- Go back to school
- Meet new people
Avoid sermonizing, carelessness and overdoing things.
The Universe supports my abundance. I perceive it, I believe it and I receive it now and always.
Tuesday, July 20
Today is great for communication, inspiration, study, teaching and promotion.
Mercury and Uranus, planets of higher and lower mind, join in a pre-dawn sextile, generating opportunities for brilliant thought and breakthrough contacts with others.
Moon in expansive Sag favors broadcasting, promotion, and teaching and learning. Her morning sextile to Saturn helps generate tangible, lasting results in these areas or in a legal matter.
With Moon in out-there Sag trining Chiron in forthright Aries, be on the watch for the hoof-in-mouth syndrome: avoid blurting out hurtful remarks.
Aside from this one possible pitfall, it’s a great, optimistic, friendly, and potentially productive day.
My gratitude generates joy and prosperity for me and others now and always.
Wednesday, July 21
Moon in Sag and then Capricorn makes great harmonies, favoring progress in whatever we focus on. Morning favors daring initiative, as Moon in enthusiastic Sag trines bold Mars and aspects confident Sun. Defend a loved one or a cause, move on a vision.
At 3:36 pm (6:26 ET) we get a short window for hot love, as Moon trines Venus in steamy Leo. Send those flowers, steal that kiss!
At 3:36 pm (6:36 ET), Moon enters constructive Capricorn, and an hour later sextiles Jupiter, planet of fortune. We can profitably work on career, goals, a team effort, furthering financial goals, and/or something requiring strategy.
At 5:37 pm (8:37 ET), Venus, planet of love and values, leaves the lustful fires of Leo and enters the somewhat arid yet diligent terrain of Virgo. Flirtation fades and we are able to work for solid relationships and finances, making the Capricorn Moon even more productive.
I release the doubts of others and hold to a vision of abundance, now and always.
Thursday, July 22
This is a day of intense change.
Today’s Master Number 22 can open the reach of our prayers, action and work, to a much wider public, even to the masses. The action starts early, as sweet Venus in analytical Virgo opposes expansive Jupiter in sensitive Pisces, expanding our compassion quotient and helping us see through the mists of glamour to identify what really matters.
At 7:09 am (10:09 ET), feisty Mars makes a quincunx to powerful Pluto. Our actions now can jump-start long term changes. At the doorstep of tomorrow’s Full Moon, this aspect can be unusually incendiary. Avoid unnecessary confrontation and in save conflict resolution for another day.
At 7:26 am (10:26 ET), Sun leaves tender Cancer and enters Leo, sign of divas.
At 12:51 pm (3:51 ET), a square from Moon to wounded-healer Chiron favors inner work, but with Sun in Leo may come off as demanding. Take a time-out to review inner dialogue, build confidence, and prepare to take constructive, bold action when/after Moon trines Uranus at 3:25 pm (6:25 ET). The roll continues this evening, when Sun in Leo makes a quincunx to expansive Jupiter in Pisces, growing our confidence and favoring promotion, romance and creative work.
Angels of courage, please direct my thoughts and actions for tangible progress now and always.
Friday, July 23
Still on the portal of last night’s quincunx from Sun to Jupiter, Moon makes an early sextile to Neptune. Jupiter and Neptune both relate to charm, angels and vision. These contacts are great for several things:
- Calling on spirit guides, positive ancestors and other light beings
- Going live on social media or working on a production or promotion
- Taking concrete action towards a dream or goal
Use the window early: at 9:34 am (12:34 ET), Moon goes VOC until 5:12 pm (8:12 ET), when she enters expansive Aquarius, favoring creativity, connections and trying something new.
The vibrations are intense, as at 7:37 pm (10:37 ET), Luna becomes full. This is the Wort (Herb) Moon, when delicate plants are harvested. It gives our dreams a jumpstart and favors magic in their achievement. It’s especially effective for goals related to our subtle life, for instance: enriching dream discipline, retrieving a spiritual practice, developing intuition, or embarking on a mystical sojourn.
The Full Moon in Aquarius, in sextile to wise asteroid Pallas-Athena, and in quincunx to Venus, offers wisdom and objectivity to connect with our light allies, make adjustments in our attitudes, relationships and finances, and consolidate a process of change. A trine from Mercury to mystical Neptune means that intuition is on our side. (Check our General Influences section for tips for every Sun and Rising Sign.)
Spirit sends angels to guide me, and I’m mindful of their guidance now and always.
Saturday, July 24
This morning, a trine from mental Mercury to mystical Neptune fuels intuition and favors card readings, connections with light beings, empathetic communication, and creativity.
At 11:25 am (14:25 pm ET), Moon in Aquarius joins Saturn, a great transit for organizing research, studies and bookshelves, but not so great for people connections, which can be strained and cold.
The rest of the afternoon favors independent activities oriented towards altruism, research and creativity. Moon’s nighttime square to ruler Uranus can spark brilliant innovation. With the planet of genius in Taurus, write down your original ideas for business and prosperity and take a step—however simple—to act on them.
My clear intent directs me on a path of success, now and always.
Sunday, July 25
With Mercury in opposition to intense Pluto, this is a great morning for de-cluttering and organizing home and financial strategies.
Moon in Aquarius makes tense aspects that accent her creative streak, but can also be argumentative. Try armchair activism and independent pastimes like reading, study, research, and artistic work.
At 4:14 pm (7:14 ET), Luna goes VOC on an opposition to Mars. Take some time off, enjoy reading and crossword puzzles. At 8:30 pm (11:30 ET), Moon enters sensitive Pisces and a half hour later, joins expansive Jupiter. These influences favor spiritual practice, enjoying music, audio and video production, and inspiring oneself or another.
Joy, joy, joy. I resonate with joy and my spirit is lifted now and always.
Monday, July 26
Moon in sweet Pisces opposes loving Venus in Virgo, sign of devotion. Settle a dispute with friends or family, do something involving art or creativity, present a proposal, agreement or contract, work on forgiveness, or on your significant relationship.
I release others from hard thoughts, and trust divine justice to prevail, now and always.
Tuesday, July 27
Today’s numerology of 9 favors transmutation, while Moon in Pisces is in all her mystical, healing glory as she joins ruler Neptune.
- Meditate or pray
- Pray for others
- Go on a shamanic journey
- Consult a medium, an oracle or your own intuition
- Heal an inner struggle
- Work on past lives
- Practice release
Evening is particular favorable for promoting something, signing a document, presenting a proposal or collaborating and communicating with others, thanks to Moon’s sextile to practical Capricorn and a quincunx from Mercury the messenger to fortunate Jupiter. Watch a comedy, think things through, and take off the rose-colored glasses.
I move to release attachments, and new good flows to me now and always.
Wednesday, July 28
We get a major shift this morning when at 2:58 am (5:58 ET), Moon leaves dreamy Pisces and enters dynamic Aries. This influence works well with today’s numerology of 1, also related to Aries and to initiating something.
This assertive Moon makes a sunrise trine to Mercury—we can start the day with mantras, positive affirmations, and sales calls or other key communications.
At 5:43 am, Jupiter backs out of the misty waters of Pisces into the clear, cold airs of Aquarius, where it will accent the inner rebel and remind us of our need to expand our wisdom.
The rest of the day is great for relationships, confidence and work. Night owls can use Moon’s wee-hour sextile to Saturn to make headway with business, study or organization.
Thursday, July 29
An opposition from restless Mars to expansive Jupiter accents the natural impatience of Aries Moon. On the down side, this high-energy aspect can be pushy. On the upside, it fuels our courage and promotional instincts. Work on armchair promotion, research campaign methods and strategies, start an online petition, or write a letter to Congress.
At 1:32 pm (4:32 pm ET), Mars calms down as he enters analytical Virgo. Afternoon and evening are great for setting a limit, organizing, detecting problems, and finding solutions.
Today’s numerology of 11 is great for generating love-energy so that angels can use it to lift the planetary frequency.
I’m accepting, I’m accepting all the love and supply that the Universe has for me now and always.
Friday, July 30
This morning, a quincunx from Venus in practical Virgo to Saturn in analytic Aquarius is good for research, for reviewing the budget, for working on self-esteem, and for healing or for nurturing relationships with clients or with a key loved one.
At 12:38 pm (3:38 ET), Moon in Aries goes VOC, offering a respite to pray or play for half an hour before she enters Taurus, sign of her exaltation. An hour and a half later, she trines bold Mars, a great combination to set up a new business, open a bank account, take on new staff, lease or rent property, make headway in work and business, or to intervene in support of a loved one’s business or finances.
I am not an age or a human name. I am infinite being, and I am connected to all the good that the divine mind sends me, now and always.
Saturday, July 31
Today’s constructive numerology of 4 can be directed in productive effort. Moon exalted in Taurus favors efforts that involve stability, security and protection, specifically in the areas of:
At 6:16 am (9:16 ET), Moon reaches her Fourth Quarter, beginning the last week of lunar cycle, propitious for practicing release and consolidating things we started previously.
At 8-9 Taurus, the Sabian symbol says:
A FULLY DECORATED CHRISTMAS TREE. The ability to create inner happiness in the darkest hour… to transfigure the darkness and deprivation of the low point of a life cycle by… an antiphonic response celebrating the ever-remembered and always expected high points of life… FAITH IN CYCLICAL RENEWAL.
At 12:41 pm (3:41 ET), Moon trines Venus, perfect for working on self-esteem, or adding spice and romance to a partnership.
Tonight, Taurus Moon joins genius Uranus, inviting us to focus on innovation in creativity, altruism, or business.
I have faith in myself, I have faith in others, I have faith in Spirit.
