A deep outbreath! Finally, the Sun edges out of the crosshairs of the Saturn/Pluto eclipse zone and into his own sign of Leo. Venus in Cancer quickly passes through an opposition to Pluto this Sunday and joins the Sun in Leo on Saturday 27th.
It’s a week when the inner planets-Mercury, Mars and Venus-begin to re-align your head, heart and soul in the aftermath of last week’s end of an era lunar eclipse. A stunning Grand Trine in Fire between Jupiter, Mars and Chiron reminds you to have faith and hope for a better future whatever your circumstances. The Mercury /Sun and midweek Mercury/Venus conjunction deliver news or information that changes your perspective.
The eclipse changes are still coming thick and fast as the dust settles but what makes the difference between being at effect or being at cause is how you frame them. It’s way too early to judge them “good or bad”. This is the Zero Point Zone-the pivot point between the current time-line and the incoming 2020 time-lines. There is absolutely nothing to do/be/practice but staying suspended in neutrality. Neutrality is not passive; it is a very present and empowered engagement with what is presenting in the Now, in this seismic eclipse window and strong solar winds.
Paradoxically, this level of awakening requires so much sleep, essential to allow the rewriting of form and the new freedom codes to occur. Acclimatise to the strong energy flow by attuning to whatever your body needs – perhaps a few knock-out days followed by very physically active ones. Drink lots of water. Be kind, gentle and nurturing as your body takes you along for the Ride.
The Chandra Symbol for the Sun at 28 Cancer:
A tremendous Cave on the Bank of a River
“Inwardly knowing where to go, what to do, how to do it, and where it all leads, sensing the individual and collective territory that must be navigated through. Placed strategically right in the core of the world dilemma to remember how to get it right. Driven by a force of will that is overwhelming. You are guided to be in the right place at the right time. Super consciously in touch and in tune with what is happening. Walking a tightrope between the heights and the depths. Given an invitation to participate in collective cycles of renewal and to stay within your place of power throughout.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The pressure lightens at the end of the week as both Sun and Venus move into compatible Fire sign Leo. You may still have issues to resolve connected with your career and your home but you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ahead is a month of fun, creativity and enjoyment, as long as you stop pushing the river or resisting changes outside your control. If you can’t remember what fun means, take some time away from your usual routine and rediscover your optimism and playfulness. This is much needed medicine for your spirit after weeks of relentless pressure.
Do more of whatever makes you happy.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
If you feel flattened and exhausted by recent non-stop hard choices, you can breathe a sigh of relief. On Monday the Sun-your energy battery-crosses the base of your chart beginning a fresh 12 month cycle. Then on Thursday, your personal planet Venus meets Mercury bringing some welcome information or news just before she slips into Leo. The next six months are all about putting new structures in place to create more enjoyment and belonging ,both at home and at work. Next week the Sun in Leo aligns with visionary change agent Uranus in Taurus, inspiring you to think out of the box and accept opportunities to choose the new over the familiar.
The end of an era.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
There may be one last issue in connection with your finances to resolve this week as Venus opposes Pluto in your angle of income. It suggests that whatever you need to do to draw a line under a recurring problem needs to be sorted now and needs to be watertight. You can then turn your thoughts to throwing a monkey wrench into the well -oiled machinery of your habits and routines .A part of you is crying out for some rest ,some leisure and some fun .Happily, the Sun and Venus light up your angle of travel and exploration for the next four weeks, so if you can take some time out, just do it.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
You may still be reeling from the changes and upheavals brought by last week’s emotional eclipse across your sign. If so, make it your absolute priority this week to take care of yourself-mind, body and soul. You are under some of the most relentless pressure of your lifetime and deserve rest, recuperation and love. Mercury has now retrograded back into Cancer and meets both the Sun and Venus this week, suggesting that more information is still to come. You may have to wait until July 31st to see the whole picture. But right now, nothing-repeat nothing-is as important as your health and wellbeing. Drop or delegate whatever you can and go on retreat.
Listen to your body’s urgent messages.
Leo Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The welcome news is that the Sun returns to Leo on Monday 22nd to begin your personal New Year However, your batteries are running low and need re-charging, so take it slowly. Not only that but Mercury is travelling backwards through the deepest part of your chart and you don’t yet have the whole picture of the changes initiated by last week’s eclipse. Wait until the New Moon in Leo on August 1st to move ahead with plans or projects. Better to use the intervening time to re-group and let your head, heart and spirit catch up with events. That way you’ll know your own mind and which way to go when you get the green light.
Acclimatising to the new energy.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The events, upheavals and changes brought by last weeks eclipse are still playing out. The dust hasn’t settled while strong solar winds are affecting your physicality and nervous system. With your personal planet Mercury retrograde until July 31st, you don’t have the full picture. Midweek, when Mercury meets the Sun and Venus, information and news you receive could change your entire perspective. Taken altogether, trying to move ahead with plans would be completely counter-productive. Far better to sit tight, watch and wait, allowing your head, heart and spirit to re-align.
Let events catch up with you.
Libra Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
Recent wild card eclipses across your career and home zones have brought certain situations to a head. One thing’s for sure -you can’t ignore the elephant under the carpet any longer and new information mid- week will make you realise this. See this as a positive-once you call time on a situation, person or alliance, you’re free and clear to move on. Happily, this Monday, the Sun moves out of the volatile eclipse zone and enters Leo along with your ruler Venus, nudging you to trust your heart over your head and recover some of your optimism and faith in life.
Grace and grit.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
It’s been a tough few weeks for everyone, you included. And it’s not over yet-the dust hasn’t settled and the upheavals triggered by last week’s wild card eclipse will roll on for weeks. Mercury is travelling backwards until July 31st, bringing to light new information that could change your perspective on a situation close to your heart. It all points to the wisdom of a tactical retreat, to staying on your witness perch, waiting and watching until the energy shifts at the New Moon in your career zone on August 1st. Gather your inner resources and re-group.
Living in the Now.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The good news is the eclipses are over-the less welcome news is that the fallout and changes are still rippling through your life. The dust hasn’t settled and with Mercury travelling backwards until July 31st, you can’t see the whole picture. Knowing this, do something counter-intuitive. Take full advantage of the Sun and Venus joining Mars in fellow Fire sign Leo to plan a trip, book a holiday, go on an adventure. It’s all about inspiring yourself by making future plans and giving yourself something to look forward to, something that every Sagittarius needs as much as the air you breathe.
The fiery New Moon on August 1st has your name written all over it.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
Even for you as a resilient Capricorn, recent upheavals and changes have felt relentless and never ending. Last week’s eclipse across your own sign brought a relationship issue to a head-whether it was a professional contract or an alliance close to your heart- and the dust still hasn’t settled. With Mercury retrograde in your opposite sign, you don’t yet know the whole story. Expect some information or news midweek that could alter your perspective on one particular person. Happily, both the Sun and Venus move out of this part of your chart this week and the intensity will lessen.
Stay in neutral.
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The pressure eases up a little as the Sun moves out of the eclipse zone and you can start to look around, to see what’s changed and what’s still standing. Don’t make any hard and fast judgments as the dust hasn’t settled and the eclipse ripples will keep rolling out for the next 6 months. Happily for you as an Aquarian, on Monday 22 the Sun enters your opposite sign of Leo followed by Venus next Sunday, to join Mars. This line up puts your closest relationships forefront and centre stage for the next four weeks. Time to put your partner’s interests first, to listen instead of talk and to support them to the hilt.
What makes them happy will make you happy.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: July 21-28, 2019
The welcome news is that you will feel the relentless intensity drop down a notch or two during the coming week, as the Sun moves out of the eclipse zone. For you as a sensitive Pisces, the last few weeks have been stressful and challenging. It may have seemed that your way ahead was blocked at every turn. Until Mercury turns forward again on July 31st, it would be counter-productive to try to push ahead. Instead, make your wellbeing your priority. It takes time after an eclipse for your head, heart and mind to re-align and for you to get your bearings. Loosen up as much as your schedule as you can, get plenty of rest to restore your natural inner peace and balance.
Time to smell the roses.
