Horoscope for the Week: July 3 - 9, 2020
Tip of the Week:
The epic Solar Eclipse that coincided with Summer Solstice just two weeks ago now culminates as a Lunar Eclipse this weekend, July 4/5 depending on your time zone. Generally, it occurs at 13 Capricorn 38, adding to the already loaded Capricorn influence. The result of this will be to usher in the next stage of events as the Moon, linked to the past, is eclipsed.
As well, a Lunar eclipse tends to be more emotional and subjective. However, this was also true of the recent Solar Eclipse because it occurred in Cancer, which is ruled by the Moon. This aligns well with the powerful emotional release of anger and frustration that has been festering in the United States, some would say, 'for centuries'. Yet, it can also be understood as serving to provide an outlet for more personal, emotional complexes.
The fact that this Lunar Eclipse on July 4 / 5th is in Capricorn, which is the Cardinal Earth sign of the Zodiac (the 'verb' in the sentence), indicates that it will carry some very powerful, extra punches, prior to the exact moment of culmination which occurs just after midnight on July 5 Eastern.
So, during the day of July 4th, the Moon will oppose Mercury Rx in Cancer, and form a sharp and edgy square to both Mars and Chiron in Aries. Then on the 5th and into July 6th, the eclipse-loaded Full Moon will also form conjunctions to Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn, all in Capricorn!
In short, expect this weekend to be emotionally charged, eventful and dramatic.
With Mercury still retrograde in Cancer until July 12, we can expect that it will continue to manifest as complex emotional currents linked to racial equality and justice. Mercury RX in Cancer is one of its most complicated / psychologically complex positions due to repressed, subjective emotions. In other words, it could be said that in some respects, the many people gathered for the BLM movement, upon closer examination, were there for their own subjective reasons as well.
The fact that this Solar Eclipse is occurring on July 4th, Independence Day in The United States is noteworthy. (P.S. Happy Birthday USA!) Having gained the attention of the world with the mass demonstrations and rioting linked to the Black Lives Matter movement, as well as the all-important Presidential Election, the United States especially will gain even more global attention over the coming days, weeks, and months.
Exciting times indeed and destined to become even more so yet.
I’ve been frequently asked about the Astrological synchronicities link to COVID-19 and what’s generally going on. With so much to say about this, below is a brief description.
It should be noted that no planetary energy occurs in isolation - all the planetary 'influences' occur in unison, and the artistic aspect of Astrology is to assess any moment in time as a whole, which incorporates all of the combined, overlapping activity. So for example the riots were synchronized not only with Saturn in Aquarius, but with Venus and Mercury Retrograde at the time, AND the Solar Eclipse. The overlapping combination of influences is of course true of your own Astrology as well!
The virus / pandemic / riots and unfolding world events is Astrologically linked to:
Neptune in Pisces, in its lower expression, manifesting as relative illusions and mass deceptions.
The Saturn/Pluto conjunction that started the year off in early January, which represents the economic reset underway, triggered by the virus pandemic and the subsequent fear mongering.
Jupiter and Pluto in Capricorn symbolizes the mass global government control factor, with Saturn contributing too especially while in Capricorn.
Saturn in Aquarius, March 21, 2020 to July 1, 2020, was the main indicator of the BLM riot/revolution. Saturn will have its final bout in Capricorn from July 1 to December 17, 2020.
Uranus in Taurus, May 2018 to July 2025, 'dispositing' Saturn (the energy transfer) reveals the bulldozer effect of those revolutions, and...
Venus Retrograde in Gemini, from May 13 to June 24, disposited by Mercury Retrograde in Cancer altogether was the perfect recipe for such reaction and projection of complex emotions.
The recent Solar Eclipse on June 21, Summer Solstice, contributed an implosion factor.
This coming Full Moon Lunar Eclipse on no less then the 4th of July, will contribute to a large-scale acceleration combined with a 90-degree turn.
Mars now in Aries indicates that the big silent war raging in the background is likely to get much louder and more aggressive.
The synchronicities of the outer events is very evident. Fasten your emotional seat belts...the summer of 2020 is in full swing.
Aries (Mar 21 – Apr 19)
Wow! The Sun in Cancer plus Mercury Rx there, the Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn and Mars in your sign will altogether activate some rather complex emotions and reactions. Positively, you will feel charged and determined to take new leads for the sake of practical ambition. Yet, quality time with home and family will also demand your attention. Remember, we do what we do to feel good, so focus there.
Taurus (Apr 20 – May 20)
Many thoughts, ideas, impressions, reflections, and reactions are crowding in your mind. This is an especially good time to slow down and center. If you allow yourself to get swept up in the emotions of others, especially if they are imbalanced, the result could prove quite challenging. Step back to see the bigger picture and make every effort to keep an open mind.
Gemini (May 21 – Jun 21)
Getting clear on what is truly important to you at this time is in the spotlight. The simple answer is probably: family. Yet, themes of security are woven into this plot, and with the Capricorn Full Moon and eclipsed at that, you should not expect the waters to be flat and calm. In fact, you are in the final stages of an important and powerful process of not just change, but transformation.
Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 22)
Sometimes the current flows faster than others while at other times they are slow, but may also be stronger… This complex weave of emotions is influencing you and are invariably manifesting on the screen of your outer relationships. Family is certainly featured, but so too is your public and professional status. The biggest question is which direction to take.
Leo (Jul 23 – Aug 23)
Despite all the commotion occurring on the world stage, you are extra happy to be out of the limelight and focused behind the scenes at this time. If you are not able to do so enough, you may feel grumpy and depressed. So, take whatever windows you can to take time out. Since you also feel inspired to socialize a little, allow for that but do not over-promise. Short visits will work best.
Virgo (Aug 24 – Sep 22)
Dreams of possibility are flowing through your mind. This has been a strong theme for the past couple of weeks anyway. Yet, with Mars in Pisces, you may not have felt the drive or will to take direct action. However, Mars in Aries should prove helpful in terms of getting you more focused and willing to do the work required. This includes gathering new tools and knowledge that you can actually implement.
Libra (Sep 23 – Oct 22)
A lot is probably shaking close to home. Positively, this is amounting to a busy time in your garden and with family toward practical and productive outcomes. However, some of the indicators include some more pointed and edgy elements that could be the source of some conflict. But, this is the last thing you want to direct this energy to external things and projects and away from people.
Scorpio (Oct 23 – Nov 21)
As eager as you are to see the bigger picture and gain a clear sense of what is actually going on, you may still feel lost and confused due to so many mixed messages. Moreover, these are coming from both within and without. These clouds of confusion will clear eventually but it may take a couple of weeks yet. So, gather information and facts now and connect the dots later.
Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21)
You have entered a rather deep cycle. Although spring is now officially over, this energy might be best met with a focused resolve to do some deep cleaning. Whether your focus is directed to your home, your body, or your mind, or all of the above is for you to decide. Either way, doing so may not be the same as fun in the sun but the clear and flowing feeling afterward will be worth it.
Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 19)
This Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in your sign will activate you very noticeably. Your ambition, drive, determination, discipline, and resolve will all get a boost. If you have been waiting for such a wave of energy to arise in order to get things done or to take new initiatives, this is probably it. Be careful, however, not to let negative reactions disperse your focus.
Aquarius (Jan 20 – Feb 19)
Changes in your lifestyle linked to your public and professional life are in the spotlight. The urge to play more and to express yourself more and creatively is part of this plot. Positively, your critical faculties are all working well and your focus is clear and sharp. It may, however, amount as much to completions, if not more so than fresh initiatives. If so, trust this phase is tie up all necessary loose ends.
Pisces (Feb 20 – Mar 20)
The world is changing are you see and feel it and you both want to do something about it and also to escape all the drama. This is probably a good idea for now. More time spent close to home with your projects and studies will at least prove fulfilling and productive. You will know when it is time to get more involved but it is probably not time yet, at least not literally.
