Astrological Forecast for July 2023

by Lou Valentino

July has always been my favorite month of the year. Both my grandmother and my mother were born in July. July 7th and 8th. I was twice blessed.

With my mother’s passing on May 27th, 2023, at the age of 90, it’s so nice to know that I have been deeply loved and supported.

I only wish everyone to be surrounded by the sign of Cancer regardless if it’s in a female or male body as they are warm and nurturing, unless other indicators in the chart say otherwise.

The Full Moon on July 3rd promises a less stressful time for the sign of Capricorn at 11 degrees (7:39AM EDT). The Sun in Cancer is the opposite sign of Capricorn.

The first Full Moon in July is “Guru Purnima” Day in India where you can ask your spiritual/religious teacher to grant you a wish. This includes all traditions so asking any form of God of your own personal beliefs is included.

The fullness of the Moon reflects the fullness of light, consciousness, in our human lives and reminds us that those who hold light deserve our respect.

Cancer wants a place of belonging, family, respect for mother and children, patriotism, and a healthy childhood environment. Many real estate agents have the sign of Cancer strong in their charts. They love being near the ocean, pool, or lake.

Capricorn wants to work hard and show their love for family by providing material comfort. They often overwork and spend more time working than with their family and this can cause a riff between the sensitive crab and the ambitious goat.

Taking a walk, hike, bicycle ride can be beneficial this month for both signs to get the needed exercise. Cancer tends to be lazier than Capricorn so inspiration to get up and get moving may come from Capricorn.

The Full Moon has no T-squares and plenty of trines. If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in the signs of Capricorn or Cancer, you are seeking domestic harmony between work and play. This combination shows less tension for the first half of July.

Capricorn is also taking a more serious look at their health this month as the Moon falls into the 6th house of health and employment. It could be your work environment, the people you work with, are not making you feel joy, and this can take a toll on your health if your job environment is not supportive.

This placement could also indicate overworking and it’s taking a toll on your health which is more likely the outcome of this Full Moon placement. Make sure you balance rest with activity. Take additional high-quality supplements like Co-Q10 by Andrew Lessman to feed the body’s cells with energy.

The Full Moon is trine Jupiter showing an expansion to better one’s vocational directions. This could be time for more advertising or a new direction for your job, so you receive a raise. Vacation time is also a part of this relaxed energy. Jupiter enjoys having fun and the Moon enjoys being near the water.

With Venus and Mars in Leo both trine to the MC or vocational house cusp line at the top of the chart and being trine to the North Node in Taurus, there is energies that want to move forward (North Node) and add more creativity (Leo) to life for those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Leo. This could also indicate more financial investment as Leo rules the 5th house of speculation and gambling. Celebration time for the entertainment industry.

This first half of July offers great opportunities and progress for the sign of Cancer, Capricorn, Leo, Taurus, and Pisces. Since the part of fortune is in Aquarius, a bit of extra luck is on their side.

Happy Birthday to U.S.A July 4th. 247 years old

Mars enters the sign of Virgo on July 10th offering those who have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Virgo to get all the details together. Mars creates physical dynamic energy in the Zodiac as it normally rules Aries.

Mars is responsible for the immune system, blood and rules the head area. If you have Virgo energy, plan on exercise, good nutrition, meditation, and high-quality supplements so harness a more focused energy.

Virgo is the healer of the Zodiac, and many are involved in healthcare both traditional and holistic healthcare practices. We don’t realize how lucky we are to have those who take care of our loved ones when they need healing. The sacrifice that Virgo’s make to help us deal with health collect’s good karma credits.

Virgo must be careful from July 10th to August 27th. Mars can cause one to move quickly and create accidents. Breath deeply Virgo everyday a few times a day to slow down and avoid the danger before it arises.

Mercury movers into Leo on July 11th giving those with Sun, Moon rising or planets in Leo an extra boost in their social life. You may be finding yourself wanting to wine and dine this month, going to a concert, being the lead singer of the band or being more creative at work. Have fun.

The New Moon on July 17th is at 24 degrees of Cancer (2:32PM EDT). This continues more activity for those with Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Cancer.

This packs a more active and stressful combination for the sign of Cancer till the next Full Moon on August 1st. This new Moon chart has 2 T-squares and a Yod (Finger of God).

New Moon’s create new beginnings so if you have Cancer energy in your charts you will be starting new directions in your life and you will have opportunities to connect with powerful people as the new Moon opposes Pluto, sextiles Uranus and trines Neptune.

This combination can create unexpected situations that you were not prepared for that offer more growth and spiritual advancement as Neptune offers graceful energy associated with more refined aspects of life that are more etheric in nature. Great for meditation and going with your gut feelings.

A death in the family could be a possibility or needing to take care of someone in the family who has come down with a serious health issue or sudden accident. This may not be the case, but Pluto does tend to stir things up and deals with issues that the sign of Cancer would rather avoid. After all the crab moves side to side and enjoys avoiding serious issues head on.

Most of the tensions in the T-squares are affiliated more with the signs of Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus. The fixed signs. This could be a time when you are up to your neck in issues surrounding work and finances. Seek out the sign of Aquarius for advice as this sign fills in the T-squares.

The Yod is pointing to Venus in Leo with Pluto in Capricorn sextile to Neptune in Pisces. Talk about a physical breakdown in the areas of work and romance. Venus still conjunct Mars but Mars is in Virgo so Virgo’s could be included.

Yod’s can create chaos but also offer and opportunity of a lifetime. Whatever energies are starting on this New Moon, July 17, for the signs of Leo, Virgo, Capricorn, and Pisces, pay close attention to your inner gut feelings of what direction to take.

The areas that will be affected are vocation, romance, and spirituality. Repeat the affirmation “I AM DIVINE JUDGMENT; DIVINE JUDGMENT IS DOING ITS PERFECT WORK IN MY LIFE AND AFFIARS NOW”.

The sign of Leo comes into great focus on July 22nd as Venus turns retrograde at (9:33PM EDT) and the Sun moves into Leo at (9:50PM EDT).

Happy Birthday to the sign of Leo.

Venus normally takes 23 days to move through a sign, but Venus will station retrograde on July 22nd at 28 degrees of Leo. When a planet stations retrograde at the ending degrees, there are 30-degree orbs in astrology for houses and signs, then the planet in retrograde, this time being Venus in Leo, will stay in the same sign for the full retrograde period.

Venus moved into Leo on June 5th, stations retrograde on June 22nd, and it will station direct on September 4th at 12 degrees of Leo and lastly moves into the sign of Virgo on October 9th, 2023.

This means that Venus will be in Leo from June 5th till October 9th, 2023, and will not be out of its retrograde shadow till October 7th.

Those with the Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Leo are looking deeply into themselves regarding issues that are affiliated with Leo such as romance and love affairs, speculation and gambling, children, sports, politics, performing arts and creativity.

This time of year, starts the political agendas of all political parties. The news will be bussing once again, as it has been over the last two years, on what kind of directions American politics wants to take.

Remember the eye of the Yod on the new Moon of July 17th in Leo, that is being activated again when Venus stations retrograde. For those with Leo energy look for great transformations to happen in your own joy.

What makes you happy? Who can you trust? Look more within and allow time each day to move into a quieter space of mediation. Be around mother nature more. Don’t take your job so seriously. If you’re in a painful relationship, take this time off and be more with yourself and friends.

Above all, don’t run from yourself. Learn “Inner Grace Mediation” that I teach and get an astrological reading to hone in on the exact issues you are facing during this Venus retrograde period to lessen tensions and feel more confident.

Take advantage of my July 4th sale that runs from July 1st till July 5th, 2023, to save money on my higher end readings.

This combination can also apply to the signs of Capricorn and Pisces also involved in the Yod pointing to Venus.

Mercury moves into Virgo on July 28th. If you have Sun, Moon, rising or planets in Virgo, you are already busy at the start of Mars entering Virgo on July 10th.

Mercury is a sociable planet so find some time to be with friends and family to ease the seriousness of Mars in Virgo working late hours. Mercury offers a clear mind so if you have been feeling unfocused since July 10th, you are able to focus much better from July 28th to August 21st, before Mercury stations retrograde. More on that in my August column.

The sign of Virgo is at the top of their game from July 28th till August 21st. Organized, hygienic, able to see deeply and quickly into any situations, increase of energy and strong immune system.

Violence from mother nature, humans and war will be on the increase from July 22nd till August 1st.

July promises to be a month of hard work that allows family and friends to have fun at the beach or wherever there is room for a social gathering. Keep your family safe and healthy.

Blessings, Lou Valentino
