This Week In Astrology
by Cecelia Ann
Looks like its going to be a busy month as America comes upon the second anniversary of the Great American Eclipse. Cancer you are front and center like Tupac Shakur rapping "all eyes on me". As Mercury retrogrades in your sign most of the month starting July 19th 3:06 AM try not to get too emotional about things, the lunar full moon eclipse in Capricorn will be opposing your Sun also. Okay Cancer I feel you looking at me knowing im Aquarius and being emotionless is easier said than done, im sorry. Let me start over. Cancer this is going to be a possible emotional month for you , but you have that hard crab shell for a reason . Its not just to hide it's also a protective mechanism for your softness. It's perfectly fine to crawl in there and take a minute this month. The good news is that Neptune is in Pisces making a beautiful water trine to your Sun and the New Moon, this is really quite the time to do just that, retreat into your shell , where it's comfortable, cool, safe and relaxing . This is the perfect time and place to indulge in your creative talents and begin any projects especially those that relate to children . As Mercury retrograde in your sign opposes Pluto and Saturn and the Full moon lunar eclipse just reiterates a time to chill , be reflective and be ready to move forward after these planets finish getting busy. The Moon is your ruler so its all really personal to you right now and it's okay to get caught up in your feelings, because that's you. Leo season is coming and you know the noise they're going to make, so we're all going to enjoy your peace and quiet. When Pluto opposes your Sun once again with the Lunar eclipse take heed with the retrograde of Mercury to remember his prior antics in your house of partners. Nothing has changed except now you see or should I say "feel" him coming, prepare for battle. Just remember that sometimes the best defense is to retreat "into our shell" until all the hoohaw has blown over. Uranus in the friendly sign of Taurus is also encouraging trying something different and coming out of your shell. I know it's a contradiction but there is always more than one way to skin a cat the old people used to say. (I'm the old people now I suppose)
Aries , Libra, Capricorn you are once again in the spotlight also as the Solar Eclipse and all this activity in Cancer and Lunar eclipse in Capricorn makes adverse aspects to your Suns, risings, and other lights in these signs. Aries and Libra you're receiving the square aspect from the Cancer and Capricorn activity. Aries your area of concentration will be the 4th and the 10th, your family and home life versus your career and public life. The new moon will be a great time for you to start a home business if thats your inclination. With the Mercury retrograde in your house of home and family opposing Saturn and Pluto in your house of career, it may be time to review these areas and make improvements. It also may be a situation where things will not run so smoothly in these areas and you may need to take a chill pill yourself. I know you think Cancer is a crybaby , but you have trouble chilling and sometimes acts like the baby of the zodiac that you are, throwing temper tantrums an stomping your feet. Well you may need to chill this month , or expect a slowdown , fix your house up this is a great time to beautify.
Libra, same as Aries only in reverse, Pluto and Saturn in your house of home and family opposing Cancer at the midheaven. Balancing career, status in life, family, and home may have disruptions . But same as I told Cancer you've been here before, you know Pluto he's been doctoring on this area for a while. Except now when he puts those plastic gloves on you know what to expect, a thorough examination. So just get your house in order best you know how. Mercury will be in your 10th retrograding, it may be a good time for you also to slow down and contemplate your next move AFTER all this possible disruptive energy. Neptune is in your 6th making a trine to your 10th , that's work and career houses, take five and use the retrograde for creative endeavors in these areas, the time is ripe. Plus with Mercury retrograding in your house of career squaring your Libra sun, you might get uncharacteristically emotional and say something difficult to take back, heed.
Capricorn, in this foray I think you have the best hand. A New Moon in your house of marriage and business partners is a lovely new start for those that need it. Mercury retrograde in this same house means that situations that need to be revisited can and should , and also be discussed nicely, peacefully, and with the desire for understanding. If done otherwise things could quickly get out of hand with you being directly on this solar and lunar eclipse axis. Pluto and Saturn continue to transform, and embody with strength you knew existed , but wasn't sure you had, well now you know, you got this. Neptune is in your 3rd house of neighbors, short trips, and siblings this could be a good time to relax close to home and enjoy the holidays and barbecues for you. If anyone wonders why I keep bringing up Neptune ? It is because Neptune is the spiritual and creative muse at this time putting a positive spin on the oppositions, squares, and eclipses . Neptune makes great aspects to the Capricorn and Cancers planetary activity promising that faith will be rewarded with peace and tranquility.
As for the rest of us the emphasis will be mainly on the houses that are represented by the houses of Capricorn and Cancer on the eclipse axis . Aspects made to the Libra and Aries houses and/or planets and whether they are hard or soft is how the eclipses affect you. I broken down some possible scenarios for each sign and houses.
