Full Moon in Capricorn on July 3 – known as the ‘Buck Moon’
This Full Moon signifies a time of hard work, discipline, and responsibility. Capricorn being an earth sign, brings focus and practicality to our emotions and helps us to set realistic goals and work towards them with determination and patience.
This Full Moon also marks the midpoint of the year, inviting us to do some self-reflection on our goals and progress we have made so far, especially if you’re in the wintertime of the Southern Hemisphere. It is a time to evaluate our achievements and failures, and make necessary adjustments to our plans to stay on track.
With the influence of this Full Moon, we can expect to feel more serious, grounded, and focused on our work. It is a good time for planning and executing long-term projects, as well as a time to let go of any negative emotions or limiting beliefs that are keeping us from reaching our full potential.
Overall, the Buck Moon in Capricorn provides powerful and transformative opportunities that allow us to take control of our lives and work towards a brighter future.
Mars enters Virgo on July 10
When Mars enters the star sign of Virgo, it can signify a time of increased practicality, attention to detail, and a focus on improving efficiency and productivity in various aspects of life. It can also bring about a heightened sense of responsibility, organization, and analytical thinking. You may also feel like cleaning and getting to work on reorganising your home or work space. Time to clean out those wardrobes and cupboards!
Mercury enters Leo on July 11
This brings a likely boost in confidence, creativity, and self-expression. Communication may become more passionate and assertive, and there may be a focus on leadership and taking charge. You may be feeling more dramatic or want to shine like the Super Star that you are! This transit may also encourage a more playful and theatrical approach to life. However, don’t go overboard as there could be a tendency towards being loud or overly opinionated. It is important to balance self-confidence with respect for others.
New Moon enters Cancer on July 18
The New Moon is a time of new beginnings, and Cancer is a water sign associated with emotions, nurturing, and family. This lunar phase is an opportunity to connect with our emotions, set intentions for the future, and focus on our personal relationships, especially those with loved ones.
The New Moon in Cancer can also bring up issues related to our home and sense of security or with women, particularly your mother. We may feel the need to create a more nurturing and cozy environment, or to connect with our roots and family history. It’s a good time to reflect on our emotional needs and how we can take care of ourselves and others.
Overall, the New Moon in Cancer invites us to dive deep into our emotions and connect with the people and places that bring us comfort and a sense of belonging.
Venus Retrograde in Leo
Venus is Rx from July 23 until September 4 (or July 22 to September 3 in most countries). It goes retrograde around every 18 months for about six weeks. During this time, our Venusian friend appears to be moving backward in the sky and can affect relationships, finances, and aesthetic preferences, such as style and beauty.
In fact, financial arrangements may seem slow or delayed during this time or perhaps you feel like overspending now? It’s not the best time to make decisions now about long-term financial stability.
When Venus Rx enters this sign, which is associated with creativity, self-expression, we could all be more dramatic about relationships or romance. We may find ourselves reevaluating our relationships, reassessing our creative pursuits, and revisiting past experiences in matters of the heart. It is a time to reflect, introspect and gain clarity about what works and what doesn’t.
You may also be reflecting upon your sense of worthiness now. Perhaps there are ‘memory flashes’ coming back from the past causing you to doubt your own self-worth. Give yourself time and forgive yourself for any part you may have played in various life situations, then move on learning as you go.
However, it’s also essential to practice self-love, take a heart-centered approach to life and keep an open mind. Remember, YOU are worthy of love.
Sun enters Leo on July 23
This is considered a significant transit marking the beginning of Leo season. This transit usually occurs on or around July 23rd each year, representing a shift in energy from the introspective, emotional nature of Cancer season to more confident, expansive and expressive energy.
Leo is a fire sign and is associated with creativity, self-expression, and leadership. During this time, people may feel more confident, assertive, and enthusiastic about pursuing their goals and passions. They may also crave attention and recognition, seeking ways to showcase their talents and skills.
Overall, it’s a time to embrace your authentic self, embrace your creativity and passions, and confidently pursue what you want in life.
Mercury enters Virgo on July 29
When Mercury, the planet of communication and intellectualism, enters Virgo, the sign of precision and organization, it encourages us to focus on the details and analyze situations more critically. This transit can bring a heightened sense of realism and practicality to our daily lives, helping us to make more clear and informed decisions. It can also bring a strong desire for order and efficiency, which can be beneficial for improving productivity and getting things done quickly and effectively. However, it’s important to guard against becoming overly critical or perfectionistic during this period. Get on and do what you have to do but you don’t have to be perfect at everything!
Lunar North Node enters Aries & Lunar South Node enters Libra July 18
When the North Node (NN) enters Aries and the South Node (SN) enters Libra, there can be a shift towards individualism and independence. Aries NN is about assertion, self-discovery, and independence. It’s a time to take initiative and direct your life towards your own goals. Your future calls you towards your destiny now!
The Libran SN, on the other hand, is about previous patterns in love, harmony, balance, and compromise….in short it’s about your past experiences in these areas. This SN encourages us to let go of over-dependence on others and to find our own balance, which may involve setting boundaries and saying “no.” This is a good time to focus on personal growth, especially by taking risks that inspire you to be more authentic and true to yourself.
You may find a subtle shifting forward now focusing on your own individual desires and beliefs. Balance and compromise is still important however, so do find the balance between your perspectives and those of others.
Now check your Sun sign, rising sign (Ascendant) and your Moon sign and wishing you a fabulous month 🙂
