Welcome to July 2023! This year is FLYING by! Congratulations!! You have made it to the halfway mark of this intense and cray year!
July 2023 is going to be one of the most life changing months of 2023! Get ready to be rocked on a whole new level. Major astrological events are set to take place and these could alter the course of your life. One of these aspects include Venus, the planet of love, beauty and comfort, turning retrograde in the sign of Leo. This is a pretty rare event, only happening every 18 months. Anytime an inner planet turns retrograde, we tend to feel it on a more personal level. This summer is about to be entrenched with a lot of drama, HEAT and passion!
The other major aspect of July 2023 is the change of the North and South Node moving from the Taurus/Scorpio axis over to the Aries/Libra axis. The North and South nodes are fated points on the moon's axis and they too bring in big change + transformation. The North node rules our destiny, is hungry for what is unknown + untried and longs for fulfillment. The South node is our past, what we need to let go/release and a very spiritual point. As these shift over to the signs of Aries/Libra, we are being called to focus more on our personal empowerment, courage and overall self interests. We are being asked to release a lot of relationships holding us back from our "true self" and codependent behaviors. This shift of the nodes will last till January 2025. Our focus over this time will be on being the best version of ourselves, entrepreneurship, and pioneering many inspiring new causes and projects! Everyone will be impacted by this shift of the nodes but the fire signs will be in the driver seat as the nodes will conjunct ( same sign) or trine( beneficial aspect) their signs! As mentioned, get ready for lots of progress and inspiration!
July 2023 promises lots of emotion, action and blasts from the past to reappear if by MAGIC! This month is asking that you roll with these upcoming changes and invite in an air of self belief, confidence, and new creative energy!
I will start at the beginning of the month which is sure to bring in heightened emotions and imaginative vibes...
On July 1st, Neptune, the planet of dreams, the subconscious, and artistic vibes, turns retrograde at 27 degrees of Pisces. Pisces, the 12th zodiac sign deals with similar themes of dreaminess, sensitivity and compassion. Neptune turning retrograde is here to allow us to tap into our subconscious patterns with extra doses of compassion and gentleness. Past life situations could be coming back up to be reexamined and acknowledged. Some could finally become clear around their artistic and creative urges with Neptune turning retrograde. Another beautiful manifestation of this retrograde will be the focus on our dream states. I would advise you to get a dream journal and record what insights you receive while sleeping. Ancestors and angels will be communicating quite heavily with this aspect. For those with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant signs on or close to 27 degrees of Pisces or the other Mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo or Sagittarius will be most impacted by this Neptune retrograde period. Expect your intuition to be on point with amazing insights around healing yourself and others. The ancestors have important messages for you so pay attention. For everyone else, check where 27 degrees of Pisces falls in your natal chart to see where these past life memories + vibes of sensitivity will be popping back into your life.
On July 3rd, we have the uber professional and serious Full Moon at 11 degrees of Capricorn. Full Moons are always highly charged with emotions and they signify culminations, completions and endings. Capricorn, the 10th zodiac sign is all about business, integrity, hard work and getting to the top. The Full Moon in Capricorn is here to bring in a no BS attitude to our projects and plans. There is a strict and unrelenting energy to our feelings now. In fact, it could appear some folks are downright cold or emotionless. This is a great full moon to see a promotion or a business plan finally taking off. We will be focused on long term strategy and advancement. The Full Moon in Capricorn will also be making a beneficial 120 degree trine to Jupiter, the planet of blessings, expansion and wisdom, who is currently in the sign of Taurus. The Full Moon in a harmonious dance with Jupiter will bring in all kinds of wonderful material blessings. Expect all kinds of abundant feelings of hope and faith. If you have had your head down working on a project, there could be major success and accolades now. Many of these projects and plans could last a LONG time with this earthy duo present. For folks with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant signs on or close to 11 degrees of Capricorn or the other Cardinal signs of Aries, Cancer and Libra, expect to be majorly impacted by this lunation. Big changes and direction with your physical body, home, relationships and work life will show up. Of course, many of these could bring in wonderful beneficial changes with Jupiter's influence. For everyone else, check where 11 degrees of Capricorn falls in your natal chart to see where these business vibes of success will be happening for you!
Moving to mid month, on July 17th, we have the comfy and dreamy New Moon at 25 degrees of Cancer. New Moons are a time to begin again, wipe the slate clean and start new plans. Cancer, the 4th zodiac sign, is all about family, security, emotions and the home. The New Moon in Cancer is here to bring in heightened emotions and tender vibes. The Moon loves to be here as it rules the sign of the Crab. This is a great new moon to begin renovating your home, spending quality time with loved ones and to purchase property. As Cancer is a water sign and quite sentimental, we will be very sensitive and quite intuitive. Tapping into our ability to be vulnerable and open to life's mysteries will bring in many blessings and gifts. The New Moon in Cancer will be making a beneficial trine ( 120 degree aspect) to Neptune, the planet of dreams, the imagination and the ethereal, who is currently in the sign of Pisces. The New Moon in a lovely dance with Neptune will bring in an abundance of imaginative energy + super creative and artistic opportunities. Our dreams will bring in major messages and our gut instincts will be on point. For anyone with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant on or close to 25 degrees of Cancer or the other Cardinal signs, Aries, Libra and Capricorn will be most impacted by this gorgeous new moon. Expect major emotional breakthroughs with yourself and those around you. For everyone else, check where 25 degrees of Cancer falls in your natal chart to see where these comfy and tender new endeavors will be showing up.
Another big event happening on July 17th will be the shift of the North and South nodes from the signs of Taurus/Scorpio into the signs of Aries/Libra. The North + South Nodes as described above are fated, karmic points on the moon's axis. They change signs every 18.5 months and bring in a whole new set of lessons, tests and opportunities. The North node is where we are headed, our destiny and where we will be seeking fulfillment + rewards. The South node is where we need to let go, release and take our past lessons as spiritual blessings + understanding. The North node in Aries/South node in Libra is here to bring in a sense of self empowerment and courageous vibes full of fiery passion + leadership. We are being asked to let go of any outdated concepts around codependency and allowing others to walk all over us. The lower vibes of this transit could be the tendency to be more selfish( overly so) and super in a hurry and not as focused on working together with mutual interests in mind. There is a balance with the shift of the nodes into Aries + Libra to balance the interest of the self vs. relationships. For the whole month of July and into August, the North node in Aries/South node in Libra will make a tense and karmic square to transit Pluto, the planet of transformation, regeneration and intensity which is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn. The Nodes in a square to Pluto will bring in some heavy decisions + fated events that could change your life in big and bold ways. Intensity will be the norm so make sure to ride the waves with this weighty aspect. I will be doing a special article with extended sign horoscopes for this transit so stay tuned. For folks with their Sun, Moon or Ascendant sign in Aries and Libra or the other Cardinal signs of Cancer and Capricorn, expect...
