An energy forecast for the month of July 2019
by Zoe Davis
This July is energetically huge with two eclipses, a Mercury retrograde and two new moons! This is a time of shifting and releasing old patterns of heaviness and limitations by facing the music. Anything that is put off now will require double the work later. Do what you can and what you must, no blaming or excuses take full responsibility for your own stuff, pace yourself and keep moving forward, no more holding back.
PROMINENT JULY TRANSITS:
We are in eclipse season! The effects on and around the coming new and full moon will be felt for the next 6 months, so it’s important to be aware of what you want, what you are experiencing and how you are handling it.
This month is an opportunity to reset everything, career, relationships, health, family, money, communication, creativity, habits, behaviours and goals, all of it. On an energetic level an eclipse is like going through a doorway and the door closing behind you. Let the door close on anything and everything that isn’t working.
On July 2nd/ 3rd there is a new moon and total solar eclipse in the sign of Cancer, this event can be used to positively shift your direction on a physical level. Where are you heading? What are your goals? Are your habits taking you towards your goals? Are your relationships positively supporting your energy direction?
This is a generally pleasant new moon; there are opportunities for stimulating encounters, meaningful connections and surprising aha moments. Being aware of your feelings and behaviours will bring about greater connection with those close to you, including family and friends.
Spontaneous communications may get you thinking about how you can make things better, particularly for connecting your spiritual awareness with material gain.
Spirituality may take on a more grounded and realistic nature, be open to a greater acceptance of physical limitations that can be mastered with self discipline and patience but without all the sacrifice and deprivation of the older consciousness.
CANCER NEW MOON/ SOLAR ECLIPSE HEALING PRACTICE:
SPEAK FROM THE HEART
Mercury conjunct Mars in Leo goes retrograde July 7th to July 31st , this transit will be teaching us to process and release emotional toxins from the past, particularly around family and childhood patterns that have manifested into adult habits.
Watch for impulsive emotions like aggression or defensiveness as well as sulking and tantrums; see issues at this time as a reflection of what is going on internally. Stay away from mind games, guilt trips, aggressive competition or power struggles.
The true struggle is within, compromise and harmonise all parts of you working together as one. Beware of overprotecting hurt instead of encouraging your need to grow!
MERCURY RETROGRADE HEALING PRACTICE:
STEP IT UP
The full moon lunar eclipse on the 16th/17th is an opportunity for an emotional reset. The moon in the sign of Capricorn and conjunct Pluto may bring massive or overwhelming emotions and desires to win or succeed. This is not a time to greatly sacrifice yourself for a cause as you will only need to use your energy and resources to recover later.
The emotional reset is recognising power surging as an ineffective and unsustainable approach to success, and the desire to succeed is real for everyone right now, for at least the next 18 months or so. Slow and steady wins the race is the lesson. Get rich quick isn’t working in this current consciousness; its easy come, easy go. Many people are craving stability and security which requires hard work, long term commitments and trusting in the process.
Be aware of old consciousness emotions in relation to work and ambition; obedience, dogma, fear of failure, manipulation and dominance need to be managed and outgrown. Watch for obsession and single mindedness, kindness, faith and being open to other options will always win the day.
Leave old fear illusions behind; let this eclipse close on the old habits and beliefs that are no longer serving, particularly around, career, ambition, power and buying into limitations.
CAPRICORN FULL MOON/ LUNAR ECLIPSE HEALING PRACTICE:
LET YOURSELF SHINE
The Leo new moon on July 31st /August 1st and Mercury going direct again is encouraging us to move forward and let ourselves shine. This moon is also called a Black Moon as we have 2 new moons within the calendar month. There may be a greater wish for looking good and presenting well in all that you do. Let yourself make mistakes at this time, because you will, and know that gracefully acknowledging mistakes is a wonderful and endearing quality. Watch out for arrogance, stubbornness or flippant behaviour.
There may be unexpected experiences, particularly around creativity, relationships and finances. Try not to get too swept up in desire or indulgence, watch your spending and your waist line!
There could also be the desire for more freedom, or to want more, to have more, to be more. Good! Do what feels good especially if it’s good for your character. Don’t throw a good reputation away on a whim, be smart and steady and enjoy continuing to expand everything you have created.
If something isn’t working, of course let it go, but if you want to start something new consider your next step as a step up, value the foundations you have made for yourself and consider how your decisions and actions can add to that.
