Saturn retrogrades back into Capricorn to make a wide conjunction with retrograde Pluto and Jupiter from now right through the autumn – the 3 change agents never more than 8 degrees apart from July 1st onwards and all at odds with Disruptor Eris- the engine behind the current social upheaval. Neptune is also retrograde as is Mercury and on July 11th Chiron turns retrograde. On July 19th Eris also turns backwards. The cosmic wheel is in reverse polarity and it will come to a crescendo over the next 10 weeks.
It’s a time for reflection, for unflinchingly reviewing the past. For looking honestly at what has brought us to this crossroads. All of this has enormous personal, private meaning for every one of us. (much more on this to come in my August 2020 5D Report)
July 5 2020 Lunar Eclipse 13 Capricorn: Sirian Downloads
This is the very last of 9 eclipses across Capricorn/Cancer since 2018. One by one, they have brought home to every single one of us the undeniable reality of the fragility and impermanence of life – as Saturn, Jupiter and Pluto’s transits through Capricorn at the same time have broken apart social frameworks, governments and the economy.
The eclipse falls on the USA Sun, increasing the splits and shifts, revealing truth after truth -a harbinger of the USA’s approaching karmic Pluto Return-the first since the Founding Fathers
Every year during the first week of July, a sacred gateway of energy is activated between Earth and the Star Sirius, bringing heightened vibrations and spiritual advancement. This Star shines 23 times brighter than our own Sun and is known as Earth’s Spiritual Sun. From July 3rd to the 7th, Sirius moves the closest to Earth and with our own Sun further away, Sirian energy is able to freely flow towards Earth, accelerating our evolution.
This Capricorn eclipse is a time to be very gentle with yourself – the world will feel harsh and emotions raw. The Capricorn Moon can be hard on those of us who are sensitives. With Sun and Moon square Chiron in Aries and Vesta conjunct the Sun, old childhood wounds and family issues need healing. As this is the very last eclipse across these signs for 9 years, take the time to look back and acknowledge how well you’ve managed to develop an unshakeable inner sense of personal security, even in the midst of relentless harsh reality checks, life shocks and upheavals. You now understand how important creating and offering sanctuary really is.
Take a moment to look back over your life since 2018, noticing where the small and big losses have taken place in your soul then embroider one last symbol on your Scar Coat. Acknowledge that some ways forward were cut off. That some of your hopes and dreams were crushed. Whilst these experiences have deepened your resilience, your individuation, your self-reliance, your awakening, they are also profound losses and need to be grieved as such. Ask yourself: Where are the places that must be remembered, marked and then left behind?
The Chandra Symbol for the Lunar Eclipse Capricorn 14:
Beads Carved from Human Bone
“The body carries memories of every world we have ever been through. These memory strings or beads bind us to the Earth. We feel pinned to the spot, responsible for everything that happens around us – somehow the one in charge. For we are carrying the continuous memory and legacy of the ancient mystery streams and of forgotten modes of knowledge. We bear the treasures intact. It makes everything count. It means that we cannot get away from ourselves or our fate for a moment; we are compelled to fulfil our vows and to bring into this world the towering awareness and strange resonance of the giants, of the ancestors, of the great ones, of the inner ways. Never lost; impossible to forget.” From Inside Degrees Elias Lonsdale.
Aries Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
Out of all the signs, you have strong planetary support and back up. Your personal planet warrior Mars is now back in Aries, re-charging your batteries and gifting you with motivation and focus. This is a rare 6 month extended stay – the last time it happened was back in 1988 – so all this extra firepower may take some getting used to. Go carefully until you’ve mastered the art of think first, act later – no big risks. Just because you want to grab the world by the scruff of the neck doesn’t mean it will go along with you. Factor in the last eclipse of 3 on July 5th activating your work/home life and tread carefully. From Sunday July 12th, you could hear some news on the career front that will change your options. Someone might be leaving – it could even be you – but do nothing until after the eclipse dust has settled.
Firing on all cylinders.
Taurus Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
Sunday’s lunar eclipse is a time to be very gentle with yourself. It’s the 3rd of 3 wild card eclipses in 6 weeks (!) and the repercussions will ripple out right through to December and beyond. All forms of communication are extra important this week with people around you feeling sensitive or edgy, every word counts – so double check texts, posts or emails before sending them. Listen more than you speak. Build rapport wherever you can. Increasing the volatility, energy planet Mars is in his own sign of fiery Aries, so others will want what they want now and probably be prepared to go for it. With the Warrior in the deepest part of your chart, some deep emotions need releasing. You may feel the need to withdraw into your safe place to dream, reflect, journal or meditate. Talking with a trusted friend may give you a much-needed perspective.
As the Dalai Lama says, make kindness your religion – towards yourself and everyone else.
Gemini Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
The lovely Venus is moving through Gemini until August enhancing your attractor quotient and re-starting a more vibrant social life. July’s your month for a personal makeover – a wardrobe update, perhaps a different hairstyle, whatever lifts your spirits. And that’s needed and overdue since on July 5th the last of 3 wild card eclipses in 6 (!) weeks carries something of an emotional kick. If you are trying to break a bad habit or break an addiction or cycle of debt, now’s the time. Since 2018, so many experiences you weren’t expecting have shown you that your old routines and especially your old ways of thinking are not cast in stone. Have some fun experimenting.
Leveraging the winds of change.
Cancer Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
The week starts with Sunday July 5th’s emotional lunar eclipse across your relationship angle which could take a personal relationship to a new level or consign it to the dustbin of history. Since 2018 relationships of all kinds – personal and professional – have ebbed and flowed, ended and re-started and this eclipse marks the end of that frustrating era for you. That said, now is definitely not the time to issue ultimatums or raise sticky issues – let the triple eclipse dust settle. With Master Teacher Saturn back in Capricorn until December, a changing of the guard in your social life will happen of its own accord. Upping the intensity, warrior Mars is back in your career sector to stay until January 2021 and already shaking things up. Set an intention to stay calm and centred no matter what happens. Be the adult in the room and watch as others run around like headless chickens.
Strengthening your emotional boundaries.
Leo Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
The week kicks off with an emotional lunar eclipse – the 3rd cosmic wild card in 6 weeks! It’s the last in a series since 2018 that have focused your attention on your health and routines. If you’ve been upgrading your personal care, your exercise and eating habits, this is when you start to feel the benefits and are motivated to keep going. On the other hand, if you’ve ignored the warning signals, it’s past time to schedule a check-up and start a new well-being regime since Task Master Saturn has returned to your 6th House of health and work. You’ll be working hard and need to create a balance between your spiritual emotional life and your work. Streamlining, delegating and prioritising are all cures for the Saturn blues. Meanwhile, Venus is boosting your social life until August so reach out and re-connect with the people who care about you.
Dropping the old baggage.
Virgo Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
With your personal planet Mercury still retrograde until July 12th plus an emotional lunar eclipse at the beginning of the week, the start of July could feel rather disorientating. It’s definitely time to press the pause button and take some quiet time for yourself. Friendships, groups, alliances of all kinds are up for review. You might be contacting old friends you’ve lost touch with or realising that some people you considered good friends are drainers rather than supporters. Sunday’s eclipse ends a phase of creative evolution that’s been developing since late 2017 – it’s time to transition from apprentice to master, to build on the foundations of your craft, art or business and to grow. With Master Teacher Saturn back in tandem with Pluto and Jupiter for the next few months, your challenge is to build something lasting and meaningful. Cutting corners will be counter-productive.
Playing everything at 100%.
Libra Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
The week starts with the 3rd of 3 wild card eclipse in 6 weeks! That tells you that change is the name of the game and you need to become a master player. The emotional lunar eclipse will bring issues to do with your home, family or tribe back round again for resolution. Saturn is underlining the need to take responsibility and to build extra strong foundations. You might be thinking of a house move or taking in an older relative or leaving home for good. Take all the time you need as, with Mercury retrograde in your career zone, things at work could re-arrange themselves with a knock-on effect on you. You don’t have all the information you ned to make a big decision. The other shift to factor in is Mars in your relationship zone until January 2021.This could bring passion and re-kindle a partnership or lead to arguments and fiery disagreements
The key to navigating July is to keep everyone who matters on board with your plans.
Scorpio Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
Although the energy is volatile out there, for you as a Scorpio Sunday’s lunar eclipse and Mercury retrograde are both affecting fellow Water sign Cancer, so you should feel some protection from the emotional harshness and reality checks. Stay flexible and calm and let everyone else run around like headless chickens. The wild card eclipse is in your angle of communication, siblings and neighbours so there may be some news from this quarter. With Saturn back in this part of your chart in cahoots with big hitters Pluto and Jupiter for the next few months, if you’ve been studying, re-training or setting up a business, it’s time for you to test it out in a real setting. Use the momentum your personal planet warrior Mars is giving you in Aries to power through the demands on your time.
Focus, focus, focus.
Sagittarius Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
“Show me the money!” is your mantra between now and the end of December. Task Master Saturn is now back in your income zone along with big hitters Pluto and Jupiter just as Sunday’s eclipse falls across this same part of your chart. It could mark the end of one source of income or a drain on your bank account. No matter how it plays out, it’s time to look at the bottom line – again and spring clean your pension, assets, insurance and debt plans. Are you over spending or over committing? Are you under charging or undervaluing yourself? It’s not a time to invest but to save. Expansive Jupiter can help grow your money tree but you have to put the work in. While you’re getting real, there’s some good news. From fellow Fire sign Aries Mars is revving up your angle of pleasure and creativity like never before just as the lovely Venus lights a fire under your one to one relationship.
Sort the basics and enjoy time with those you love.

Now is the time to be very gentle with yourself – the world will feel harsh and emotions raw. Take the time to look back and acknowledge how well you’ve managed to develop an unshakeable inner sense of personal security, even in the midst of relentless harsh reality checks, life shocks and upheavals.

Aquarius Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
The welcome news is that Venus in fellow Air sign Gemini is smoothing your path until August. No matter what is going on around you, grab every chance for fun, laughter, pleasure you can. Get into nature if you can, do something physical just for the enjoyment. Along with Venus, Saturn is also lifting a weight of responsibility from your shoulders as he heads back into Capricorn until December. That leaves you a space of 6 months before life changes again. Meanwhile, on July 5th the last of 3 eclipses in 6 weeks arrives and, happily for you as an Aquarian, it seems to affect those around you more than you directly. It’s bringing to an end a saga connected with your health that began in December 2017. You might find that a problem has disappeared of its own accord or meet a healer who suggests a radically helpful approach. You realise that to fire on all cylinders you have to look after your well-being consistently instead of randomly.
Smell the roses.
Pisces Week Ahead Forecast: July 5th – 12th, 2020
With the Sun and Mercury both in fellow Water sign Cancer, July is set to be a lovely month for fun, play, leisure and romance. An emotional lunar eclipse on Sunday July 5th is centring your thoughts on friends, groups, community and your alliances. Underlining changes in this part of your life, Saturn is now back in cahoots with big hitters Pluto and Jupiter suggesting that you have a decision to make. It might be cutting ties permanently with a group or organisation or church – you’ve moved on but they haven’t. If it’s not you leaving, someone else will meaning you have to step up and take more responsibility. But it’s not all about duty – your creative ideas are going to be very much in demand and there’s fun to be had. If it’s professional organisation, make sure you’re valued and also rewarded for your contribution.
Capture your ideas before they fly past.
