Astrological Forecast for July 2018

by Lou Valentino

July is active with a partial solar eclipse, total Lunar eclipse and Mercury stationing retrograde.

Happy Birthday to America on Wednesday July 4th. Wishing everyone peace in this new solar year for America and the world.

Venus moves into Virgo on July 9th empowering their ability to attract money. This placement can also make those with Sun, Moon or rising in Virgo want to purchase more material things like cloths, jewelry and some chocolate. This is a good time to ask for a raise and fall in love if you are single. This energy runs till August 7th.

Jupiter is in charge of the immigration laws and it has been retrograde since March 9, 2018 causing more delays and confusion surrounding immigration. Jupiter is in the sign of Scorpio and will station direct at 13 degrees on July 10th.

Jupiter is square to Mercury and Mars with Mercury opposing Mars. With Jupiter in direct motion, there is heated (Mars) discussions (Mercury) on international policies surrounding immigration. This could be the time a comprehensive immigration package gets pushed through by Congress The other thing that could happen is massive protests and anger from the public over immigration.

Jupiter rules the higher laws finalized by the Supreme Court. Could the Supreme Court get involved to help push certain laws through faster to heal this very intense issue?

The new Moon on July 12 is a partial Solar Eclipse in Cancer at 20 degrees (10:48PM EDT). Those born with Sun, Moon or rising in Cancer are up for some deep psychological changes. Issues they want to transform. This new Moon solar eclipse has Pluto in an exact opposition too the Sun and Moon in Cancer in retrograde motion.

Areas of family life, the mother and vocation. How do we view the Mothers role in family life? How do we balance work with family life? Where is American families headed too in the future? Eclipse energy can last up too 6 months.

Pluto represents birth and death issues as well as sexuality. These issues may come up: Health issues surrounding death and how that effects families, sexual abuse in society and abusive behavior towards woman and children and gun violence in America. Lots of attentions over the next six months on these issues.

We have every aspect in this new Moon chart Yod " Finger of God", T-square and a grand trine in Earth signs. Opportunities of a life time for the signs of Leo, Pisces and Scorpio or things that have been building up to this point come to a huge crashing of realities due to the Yod. A new beginning is available with better opportunities.

This should be a good financial month as the grand trine is in Earth signs with Uranus in Taurus in the 2nd house of money indicating some stability is there even if it seems like chaos sometimes. The signs of Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo feel more at ease financially than ever before. This energy runs for the next 6 months.

The Sun enters the sign of Leo on July 22nd at 5:00PM EDT. Happy Birthday to those born under the sign of Leo. Mercury stations retrograde at 24 degrees of Leo on July26th at 1:02AM EDT. One day before a total full Moon lunar eclipse. It stations direct on August 18th at 12 degrees of Leo.

If you have Sun, Moon or rising in Leo, this could be a time you would rather skip the party and be more reflective about your life. Communcation breakdowns could happen or you may start to roar like a Lion from something you said being taken out of context. Breath:

Leo's opposite sign is Aquarius and the total full Moon eclipse on July 27th at 4 degrees of Aquarius (4:20PM EDT) is effecting those with Sun, Moon or rising in Aquarius or Leo. The push and pull of being sociable or doing things alone comes to play here.

Aquarius is the rebel of the Zodiac. They want to invent something that has not been done before. They love working with organizations or groups of people and have different types of friends but their independent nature can be hard to pin down in personal romantic relationships.

Leo's on the other hand are giving by nature but they need to be noticed. If they are ignored it is the biggest turn off for them. Since the transiting North Node will be conjunct this full Moon lunar eclipse, it creates gains in all areas of life. See what houses Leo rules and what planets are in Leo in your chart. The issues ruled by that house are the areas of life that will show challenges but, in the end, great gains.

The challenges are coming from a T-square with oppositions from the North Node/Moon in Aquarius too Mars and Pluto both square to Uranus in Taurus. Scorpio fills in the T-square so if you need advice, go to your Scorpio friends.

It will be intense for those who have Aquarius/Leo energies over the next six months but the effort to keep a positive attitude pays off. Take the time with Mercury retrograde to plan a strategy so when Mercury turns direct on August 18th, you will be able to move your energies quickly to fulfill your North Node/Moon conjunction issues.

The full Moon lunar eclipse chart is not as intense as the new Moon as Pluto and Mars trine Venus making any tensions coming from the T-square manageable. The trine is from Capricorn to Virgo. These signs find peace of mind in their personal lives with plenty of romantic energies.

July is a good month too enjoy family and friends at the beach.
