THE ASTROLOGICAL EDGE . . . . . July, 2019

July will be one of the most astrologically active months all year. This event-filled period will have two New Moons, one of which will be a Solar Eclipse. We’ll also experience a Lunar Eclipse and be under the influence of retrograde Mercury most of the month. Moreover, powerful aspects between the outer planets as well as the Nodes will set the stage for significant transformation. It will be important to stay grounded in reality, as there will be more confusion and intense emotional energy in the air than usual. Stick to daily routines, and take extra time to process new information. We’ll likely be feeling distracted by issues emerging from our subconscious, which can make errors or accidents more likely. Slow and steady will be the ideal pace!

On a global scale, current events will likely mirror this month’s tumultuous astrology. Themes of security will be strongly present, both with the July 2 Solar Eclipse in Cancer and the July 16 Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn. People’s fear of the unknown will be triggered, which can result in some countries proposing or enacting restrictive policies regarding immigration and freedom of speech, religion, and international travel. Women’s rights and laws related to maternity leave, breastfeeding, childcare, abortion, and other issues could also feature prominently. With Mercury traveling retrograde through Cancer during the second half of the month, historical conflicts concerning women’s rights could be reignited around that time.

The North Node is in Cancer all year offers a nurturing energy. But in order to make the most of this gift, we will need to let go of fearful beliefs and other psychological “baggage” from our past. Luckily, Saturn, planet of karma, will be conjunct the South Node in Capricorn this month, helping us to do just that. The square between Jupiter and Neptune will continue this month, making us prone to overly idealistic thinking and unrealistic expectations. Fortunately, a favorable sextile between Saturn and Neptune will offer some grounding energy and the ability to scale our visions down into a manageable plan of action.
