This is the Zero Point between July’s two wild card eclipses. Choose your trajectory carefully.
The Sun in Cancer is conjunct Sirius-the brightest Star in the sky- activating the sensitive trigger- happy midpoint of the July 2 and 16th eclipses, aligning with the Gods of Change -Saturn, the Node of Fate, Neptune and Pluto. Mars in fiery Leo is at odds with volatile Uranus and Mercury who is kicking up a dust storm by turning retrograde.
Expect drama in the outer world, but create neutrality in your inner world. Neutrality is not passive; it is a very present and empowered engagement with what is presenting in the Now. Be free in a world that is not yet free.
From Monday 8th- when both Mercury and Chiron turn backwards -all the outer threshold planets Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Pluto are retrograde. This means a conscious deepening, a going within to become an intronaut exploring and updating your own terrain. The next 7 days in this eclipse tunnel before the doozy of the July 16th Lunar eclipse conjunct Pluto are a kaleidoscope of sacred geometry multiple 5D energy bridges, gateways and choice points. Watch for sudden sideways elevators tilting your daily reality so that you suddenly slip and slide into radically new physical, emotional and soulful territory. Your Body is taking You along for the Ride.
Sirius is a conduit for multidimensional downloads from the Cloud. You may begin to feel more like your True Self than ever before. Just take a step towards your new creations, holding open the space for yet more transformation at the approaching July 16th eclipse ……….

The Chandra Symbol for Chiron RX:
A woman with an aquamarine in her navel
“Sensuous pleasure, powerful passions. Body wisdom. Impulses and instincts, desires and cravings, and the festive celebration of being alive here now. You are totally enraptured with the senses–energetic, vital, enthusiastic, on fire. Direct and straight on. Candid and willing to release into what arises. Impressionable, suggestible, youthful. In touch and in tune with what wants to happen here, your gut conviction is fiercely strong. You feel driven to be yourself and by the need to engage with the other completely. You are the one who stands out, who makes a point of it, who is unashamed.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Midway between two potent eclipses on your axis of life direction, start to register then acclimatise to what is being evoked, awakened and re-patterned in you. Frame these rare eclipses not as one -off dramatic events but as catalysts for seeding the next growth step in your evolution to 2020.As shaman Chiron turns backwards in Aries, career and home are under renovation. By now, the nudges from the universe in the form of circumstances outside your control changing around you should be too obvious to ignore. This is enormously supportive, progressive astrology, tailormade to help you set up your own business or creative side-line, just as long as you trust your own instincts and do the groundwork.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Ever since February when awakener Uranus returned to Taurus for the first time in 84 years, a strange sense of excitement and possibility has been building. Sudden insights, realisations and lightbulb moments are turning your focus away from the past towards creating a life that is handcrafted to match who you are now. With Mars aligned with Uranus and midway between two reality changing eclipses, ditch anything holding you back -limiting beliefs, toxic habits-ready to respond in the moment to unexpected opportunities. It’s time to become the creative agent you are and to act on the world instead of being acted upon.
Free your wild.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
On Sunday your personal planet Mercury slows to turn backwards in your zone of connection, signalling that it’s time to stop pushing ahead with goals and plans and to retreat to take stock and get up to date with yourself. This is the midpoint between two reality checking wild card eclipses and your finances and resources are under reconstruction. Your old ways of spending, saving and supporting yourself just aren’t cutting it anymore. Rather than thinking something’s wrong, let the blast of eclipse fresh air inspire you to find creative new ways to add to your income streams. Your choices may not be conventional but they will be authentic – that’s your mantra for 2019-2020.
A grace period.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
For you a Cancerian, events in July have a touch of fate or destiny about them. Two wild card eclipses across your sign-on July 2 and 16th– are throwing situations, relationships and your career up in the air and who knows where they’ll land. Knowing that this is out of your control is the first step to acknowledging that it’s time to look to a different future instead of clinging on to the past for security. Deep down, you know who and what is no longer in your highest interests and deep down you are feeling a pull towards the new, the exciting and the inspirational. Ask yourself: “If everything is up for grabs and nothing is a given, what would I want to create in the world/for the world and how would I go about creating it?” Then let your answer set your agenda.
Opening the cage door.
Leo Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
This is not business as usual for you as a Leo. Usually the month before your birthday, when the Sun is in the most hidden part of your chart, is a time to withdraw, recharge your batteries and prepare for your personal New Year. Not so in 2019.Two potent eclipses on July 2 and 16th are shaking up your world and not allowing you any rest. This week Mars in your sign triggers first Mercury then volatile Uranus. Think fireworks, think explosions, think sudden unpredictable changes connected to your career and place in the world. Now’s the time to take a stand for what you’re worth, what you believe in and get out of any situation that is blocking your way. Draw your line in the sand then stick to it.
Be uncompromising but not confronting.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Changes are arriving thick and fast. If not to you then to people and situations around you which create a domino effect on your own life. We’re at the very sensitive midpoint between two reality changing eclipses and to up the intensity, Mars is at odds with volatile Uranus and your personal planet Mercury is turning backwards, creating a trickster storm of disinformation. Refuse to take any of it personally and cut both yourself and others lots of slack. Focus on spotting new opportunities as they suddenly arise and don’t let them go by. Frame the next week before July 16th’s doozy of a plutonic eclipse as sowing the seeds of freedom and an escape ladder from the rut of your long out grown comfort zone.
Flickers of the new on the horizon.
Libra Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Just like Cancer, for you events in July have a definite touch of fate or destiny about them. Two reality changing wild card eclipses are activating your axis of life direction and whatever you set in motion back in January is coming home to roost. This week, the Sun at the pinnacle of your chart aligns with Saturn, Pluto and Neptune and a situation will reach the end of the road. Whether it comes from circumstances re-arranging themselves outside your control or whether you initiate it, a break from the past is long overdue. Frame whatever happens as a rare opportunity to set yourself on a new track – one that is handcrafted and more authentic. In essence, this is your chance to get current with who you are now and update your thinking.
Change is the one constant.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
For you as a Scorpio, this is a rare and welcome opportunity to make a move you’ve long been planning. Both your personal planets Mars and Pluto are highly charged and at odds with Uranus, the Sun and the Node of Fate. Adding to the intensity, this is the hyper sensitive midpoint of July’s two potent eclipses- one on July 2nd and the other on July 6th.Anything can happen and probably will. Loosen up your plans and your schedule ready to seize the opportunities as they arise. Even better if you can take a trip to somewhere unfamiliar to get a 360 degree perspective on what needs to go and what is your heart’s desire. Do your own thing and ignore others trying to create dramas. Your own highest interests are paramount now.
Focus, determination and singlemindedness.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
This is definitely not the time to sit back and smell the roses, lovely as that would be. We are in the seismic storm window right between two potent wild card eclipses and everything is up in the air and up for grabs. For you, your finances are forefront and centre. Your foundations and security need reinforcing and making fire-proof or watertight. You are on a fast track to a future defined on your own terms and you need to use all your inner resources and resilience to keep your eyes on the prize. Don’t let anything or anyone distract you and make sure that those close to you are on the same page when it comes to money matters.
Focus like a laser.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Without exaggeration, July is a make or break period for you a Capricorn. Two reality changing wild card eclipses across your own sign and your relationship zone -July 2nd and July 16th-activate both Pluto and Saturn in Capricorn. These are relentless change agents, eliminating and scouring away aspects of your life that are outgrown. Although painful at the time as events slip out of your control, such losses are clearing the way for green shoots of new growth. So rather than clinging to the river bank, let the current take you downstream. Lost in translation somewhere between the old order and the new chaos, ask yourself “what is my unique invitation to renewal and innovation?”.
When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills. Chinese proverb
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
For you as an Aquarian, this is a time of creativity, inspiration and insights that have the potential to change your world around. Both Mars and Mercury are now in your opposite sign of fiery Leo giving you the momentum and drive to follow the beat of your own drum. As Mars aligns with awakener Uranus at the roots of your chart, new people, interesting conversations and opportunities suddenly arrive. Instead of sticking to the tried and tested -for which read staying in your comfort zone- take the road less travelled and surprise yourself with a magical mystery tour.

Pisces Weekly Forecast: July 7-14, 2019
Happily for you, in what is shaping up to be an intense week, most of the action is in Cancer, a Water sign highly compatible with Pisces. All around you, the stakes are high as Mars triggers volatile Uranus, while the Sun aspects heavy hitters Saturn and Pluto right on the midpoint of two wild card eclipses. There is so much planetary support in your angle of creativity, so while it’s a good idea to be alert for red flags, focus all your attention and instincts on birthing new projects and launching something that’s close to your heart into the world. Ask yourself:” If I were brave, what might I do differently on a daily basis? If I were to consistently put my own highest interests first, what would I do differently right Now?”
Live it. Own it. Mean it.
