July Astrological Events | Nuit
Talking about astrological events, July is a handful! Eclipses and retrogrades and squares, oh my! Buckle your seatbelts, astrology lovers, because July is bound to be a wild ride. There’s an interesting push / pull energy in the cosmos, where you may feel fired up to make a drastic new decision – quit your job, move, break up, start a new career – but it’s best to look before you leap. Mars enters Leo at the beginning of the month, which may get you all revved up regarding moving forward. The New Moon on the 2nd may catapult you towards a grand new vision of how your soul wants to evolve – since this eclipse is on the North Node, you may find you get an inspired new idea of what will bring you emotional fulfillment. North Node brings blessings, so allow yourself to dream big and ask what your heart wants. Venus enters Cancer on the 3rd, so you may feel more called to stay at home, ground down with your loved ones and spend time doing the things that make you feel safe and secure.
Mercury heads retrograde on the 8th in Leo, creating a cosmic slowdown. This time is best suited for dealing with reviewing old plans, renegotiating old offers and recalibrating your life if your priorities have been out of order. The eclipses are asking you to make the changes that promote your emotional well-being, your home and your closest loved ones above any material success, so allow yourself this internal period to really question what makes you feel safe and cared for. You may have a harsh encounter with authority or a father figure on July 9, with Sun opposite Saturn. Be mindful of not making a quick, rash move when Mars in Leo squares unpredictable Uranus on 11th – tensions could run high and you may feel tempted to explode. On the 16th, there’s a full moon on the South Node, so you could have a dramatic revelation around the house that Capricorn 23° falls in within your chart. What is not meant for you may fall away, so be gentle with yourself and retreat into what feels safe. Cancer is represented by a crab, so find your safe space, your shell, so to speak. There could be a limiting or restrictive energy when it comes to what brings you pleasure, money or love when Venus opposes Saturn on the 17th, so find that love from within.
The energy lightens at the end of the month. You may finally feel like leaving home and soaking up the summer vibes when Venus enters Leo. Mars trine Jupiter will grant you a lucky break if you take inspired action towards your goals. Since Jupiter is retrograde, it could be an opportunity from the past that comes back – this time, jump on the chance (Mars is the planet of ACTION!) July doesn’t end without one final revelation – look out for a COMPLETELY unexpected surprise at the end of the month when Sun squares Uranus! The month ends with a new moon in Leo so allow yourself to create a heart-centered intention based on the desires that this rocky month has illuminated to you.
