July starts with a bang, as Mars in Leo is at odds with the ongoing Saturn in Aquarius /Uranus in Taurus square. These are all Fixed signs so clashes between old and new, traditional and modern and progressive and retrogressive are coming to a head. We have been witnessing this play out culturally, politically and personally right from the start of 2021-now Mars is insistent that you transform 3D Strong Will into unified Good Will, Skilful Will and Transpersonal Will.
Venus is approaching a conjunction with Mars Leo-exact on July 12th-so look for 3rd Way innovative heart -based win/win solutions to challenges or disagreements.
With the Martian archetype all over this week’s celestial pattern- making and aligned with the karmic Great Attractor-strapline: “On the wavelength of the voice of God”-, what matters is expressing your life force, your libido, your creativity at its highest level, avoiding being caught up yet again in ego-based interpersonal conflict. The stunning Grand Trine between Mars/Chiron/South Node of Fate is a clear message to stop repeating old self-sabotaging patterns.
Chandra Symbol for Mars LEO 13:
A man painting scenes on a ceiling.
“Inspired soul gifts. You are endowed with a great wealth of talent and ability–the natural artist, visionary and attuner. Everything overflows. Huge scope, bigger than life; issues of ego; can the self be selfless? Raw vitality and virtuoso performance. This calls for a ripening and deepening to be fulfilled. When still bold and wild, you experience great struggle against constraints; when clear and steady, there are no limitations on what can come through. The prototype for the future. Giving the whole picture in all its glory.”
Aries Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
The Sun is now travelling across the base of your chart until July 21st emphasising family, roots and your physical home. All of these are crucial to your sense of belonging. This is your annual reminder to strengthen the ties that bind, to make sure your foundations are deep and strong to future and weather proof you against life’s ups and downs. Now that both Mars and Venus are in your 5th House of enjoyment, leisure and self-expression, think about taking a trip or holiday with the tribe or, if that’s not possible, starting a new creative project that’s close to your heart. Just avoid clashes or confrontations and look to negotiate win/win scenarios instead.
Belonging is not a place but a state of mind.
Taurus Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
Now that Mercury is moving forward again and the Sun is crossing through your angle of communications until July 21st, those glitches and misunderstandings should be a thing of the past. Just be extra sensitive about the impact of your words, whether email, text, social media or spoken, and aim for understanding, not one upmanship. Your personal planet Venus and Mars in your Leo angle of home is at odds with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus and heavy hitter Saturn in your Aquarian career House. This is gives you the momentum and the desire to juggle your priorities and to look at how satisfying your life/work balance really is.
Spend some time quietly nestbuilding.
Gemini Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
It’s been a strange time for you as your personal planet Mercury will have spent an amazing 97 days in Gemini between May 3-July 11th! Not only that but the planet of communication was retrograde for 22 days and in alignment with Neptune, planet of dreams and illusions. Mercury is now moving ahead again with one last Neptune reprise on July 6th, so the fog is lifting. It seems as if, on every level, inner and outer, you’ve been on a search for personal truth. That will have meant discarding certain activities, people or attitudes that have held you captive and stuck for far too long. This week, when Venus and Mars catalyse Uranus and Saturn, it’s time to plant a flag for what you stand for.
Cancer Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
It’s your birthday month and time to celebrate as the lifegiving Sun refills your batteries and restores your faith in yourself. The beautiful Full Moon in your opposite sign on July 24th aligned beautifully with expansive Jupiter, nudging you to do what you love most-relax with music, film or water nearby. On June 27th, joining planet of momentum Mars in Leo, Venus adds sparkle to your finances. The next few weeks could attract extra income, so make the most of any opportunities. With Mercury, planet of commerce, tucked away in your deep 12th House, get extra clear on your priorities and values so that you make decisions that keep you on track.
Leo Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
From June 27th, there is an element of grace in your astrology as Venus returns to your own sign in anticipation of merging with her planetary lover Mars on July 7th.Venus in your own sign enhances your attractor quotient, smoothing your path and making others more willing to listen to what you have to propose. This is going to make a difference as Mars is at odds with both unpredictable Uranus in and also dour Saturn making your career and partnerships tricky to navigate. Do you remember the phrase:” When they go low, we go high”? That’s the most skilful approach this week.
Seeking workable compromises.
Virgo Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
At long last, your own planet Mercury has moved forward in your career zone. Perhaps now you might be able to clear up misunderstandings, untangle crossed wires and build some stronger bridges. This is all tied in to the ongoing clash between big hitters Uranus and Saturn and is intensified this week and next by Mars at odds with both of them. Your everyday work, service and routines could be disrupted-possibly by wi-fi glitches or system crashes. You have a lot to deal with but hopefully Venus and Mars together in heart-based Leo will nudge you to find more creative ways forward.
It’s a good time to switch to new platforms.
Libra Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
Until July 21st, the Sun will travel through Cancer, the pinnacle of your solar chart. This brings your once- a -year career boost, so be alert for opportunities to grow what you do. If you’re self-employed, this is lovely energy for building rapport with clients, sensitive and empathic. It’s all about who you know and who knows you with both Venus and Mars in Leo, your 11th House of friends, networks, groups and collaborations. Get out and mix as much as circumstances allow and enjoy expanding your people landscape.
Turn creativity and curiosity into your superpowers.
Scorpio Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
There’s a lot of activity in your solar chart at the moment. Your personal planet, Mars, is crossing the pinnacle of your chart in fiery Leo clashing with both change agents Saturn and Uranus this week and next. Fortunately, Mars is joined by Venus nudging you to try diplomacy before confrontation. It’s all about work/life balance and the new has to take precedence over the tried and tested. Your need for more personal freedom may not go down well with certain family members. Refuse to make any long term commitments until much later in the year, giving yourself space to make your own choices.
Sagittarius Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
The clash between restrictive Saturn and freedom craving Uranus will feel intense this week. You’ll be craving fun, leisure, a holiday, a trip to the coast, anything that takes you away from daily routines, duty and nose to the grindstone. It’s not as easy as it sounds as work has your name on it, with conflicts to deal with, along with new schedules or platforms to introduce. Home is also top of your agenda with uncertainty around arrangements or commitments. You can’t run the world alone, so cut yourself some slack and do something just for yourself each day, even if it’s just finding new trails to explore in your neighbourhood.
Come up with a list of things to look forward to.
Capricorn Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
Now that the Sun is travelling through your opposite sign of Cancer until July 21st, relationships are going to be at the top of your agenda. Spend as much time as you can with those closest to you, catching up with them and talking over future plans together. The subject of money will come up with Mars, Uranus and your own planet Saturn at odds with each other. Watch out for splashing too much cash with both Mars and Venus in your generous Leo 8th House making you more spontaneous than usual. This is the halfway point of your solar year, so better to plan ahead, pay down debt and invest in savings.
People who need people…
Aquarius Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
Life is lightening and loosening up now and so should you, thanks to the arrival of Venus in your opposite sign of Leo. For the first time since 2015, she is heading for a reunion with Mars in this big hearted sign, so, if one special relationship needs rekindling, it’s time to light the fire under it. Be open to saying yes to invitations, to talking to neighbours, to inviting friends, family or tribe over just for the sake of getting together. You’re busy making some long overdue upgrades at home, so open welcome people in-even if restrictions mean they have to be in the garden.
Time to smell the roses.
Pisces Weekly Forecast: June 27-July 4, 2021
The saving grace for you as a solar Piscean until the end of July is that you are hosting Jupiter in your sign. Whatever this gas giant touches expands, so opportunities for both inner and outer growth seem to appear as if by magic. Jupiter also delivers exceptionally powerful healing medicine for mind, body and spirit which might be needed with Mars in your 6th House of wellbeing and health at odds with restrictive Saturn in your 12th House and unpredictable Uranus in your communications zone. The key to channelling this powerful energy is to always keep the big picture in mind. So, if circumstances seem to put roadblocks in your way this week, look for the unintended benefit.
Life has far bigger ideas for you than you do.
