Week Ahead – Monday, July 16th through Sunday, July 22nd

  • Posted on July 15, 2018 at 7:30 am

Happy Sunday all! We are entering July’s halfway point and this week looks a bit easier for us astrologically. We had our Cancer Solar Eclipse, the 2nd of the season, on Thursday/Friday, which challenges us to summon and use our passions, drive, determination and integrity in the weeks ahead. This season is a bit different because rather than having the usual two eclipses (one solar and one lunar) we have 3! This recent Solar eclipse, an Aquarius Lunar Eclipse on the 27th, and a Leo Solar Eclipse on August 11th. So what doe this mean for us? The usual intensity and power we get during the eclipse season will be around for 4 weeks as opposed to the usual 2 weeks. This Solar Eclipse a few days ago was also a Cancer New Moon, which has brought into focus issues that are linked to Cancer, like our needs, feelings, sense of belonging, family, home, ancestry, nurturing, security and the archetypical female. So it has started a 4-week process where we can closely work with these areas in our life in some way to bring about transformation. Use it wisely! Now let’s see what this week has in store for us.

MONDAY/TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY

Monday is a quiet one in the skies, but we do still have the energy of the Virgo Moon with us helping us to work through our to-do lists. Tuesday brings a Void of Course Moon just before noon, which lasts until the late evening when the Moon moves into the more social sign of Libra. A Libra Moon creates a feeling of harmony and calm and is great for social activities. This will be with us till about Thursday. Wednesday is also a quiet one in the skies, so we have a pretty chilled first half of the week.

THURSDAY/FRIDAY

Thursday is another quiet one, but we do have a Void of Course Moon in the late evening. The energy starts to shift now and we are pushed to get things moving. The early hours of Friday sees the Moon shift into Scorpio. This will bring us a couple of days where we need to be careful not to get swept away by irritability, mood-swings, hysteria, big and small excitements, and a sudden desire to quickly change everything. People tend to become more conscious of self and others and see everything in dark tones with the Moon in Scorpio. The Moon in Scorpio urges us to uncover our own power, and it’s an excellent time to rid ourselves of old fears and limiting habits. It can be an intimate and passionate time. We also have Mars retrograde in a conjunction with the South Lunar Node. where we need to be careful not to fall back into old habits and routines we were trying to break away from.

WEEKEND

Saturday is another quiet one for us. Sunday sees the Sun move into a new sign, so Happy Solar Return to all of you Leo’s out there! The Sun moving into its very own sign means that its radiant vibes will be extra bright now. While this is particularly strong for Leo’s it can affect all signs as well. Leo brings the focus toward our individuality, our sense of identity, our creativity, self-esteem and self-expression. And Leo is fun! It wants to let our inner child out to play! The morning sees the Moon going Void of Course briefly and then moving into upbeat Sagittarius, where our focus turns from inward to outward. This lunar mood is very adventurous, active and restless for exploration. We want to experience life first hand. we want to get outdoors, see the sights, connect with nature, go places we haven’t been before. So let yourself explore! We also have a sextile between Venus and Jupiter, bringing an abundance of creative inspiration, material enjoyment and some feel-good pleasure in the air. This, coupled with Sagittarius’ energy means we need to be careful of overindulging.
