Astrological Energy for July

Jun 30, 2022 10:00AM ● By Alexa Lane

Happy summer! The Sun is in the sign of Cancer, associated with the summer solstice, and will move into Leo on July 23.

At the beginning of July, Mercury in Gemini is trine Saturn in Aquarius. There is supportive energy to define ideas and create innovative projects. Self-discipline and a positive mindset are essential. Thinking logically and carefully, listening to alternative views and committing to personal truth and freedom can lead to successful outcomes.

Early July also offers a sextile between Venus in Gemini and Jupiter in Aries. The energy stimulates the expansion of faith and love. It supports the courage to engage in intimate, meaningful conversations that involve individual values.

Cancer Season

Cancer is a cardinal water sign ruled by the Moon. Cancer has a nurturing and sensitive quality and resonates with home, protection, self-preservation, mothering and family. Cancer strives to explore the depths of the psyche and experiences the inner world as a rich resource for creativity. To that end, healing and feeling emotions are essential for evolution.

To embody Cancer energy, practice self-nurturing activities, offer supportive care to others or prepare a meal at home and share it with friends.

Cancer calls individuals to create a soul family with deep emotional bonds. It inspires intimate unions between people where it is safe to share sacred secrets. Evolutionary growth happens by using discernment and knowing when it is time to shed the shell of protection and open up to loving relationships and experiences.

Capricorn Full Moon in July

On July 13, a Full Moon occurs at 21 degrees and 21 minutes in the earth sign Capricorn at 2:37 p.m., EDT. Capricorn initiates the creation of a strategy to achieve something significant in the world: a Master Work. It embodies integrity and living up to individual standards. The Full Moon in Capricorn inspires the endurance and self-discipline to devise a plan that helps manifest this masterwork. 

During this Full Moon, Pluto in Capricorn is conjunct the Moon. Pluto stimulates the need to bring wounds to light for recovery and healing. The conjunction offers an opportunity to let go of limiting beliefs that impede evolution or the accomplishment of your masterwork. The energy may be intense. However, releasing past wounds leads to transformation and happiness.

Leo New Moon in July

On July 28, a New Moon occurs at 5 degrees 38 minutes in the fire sign Leo at 1:55 p.m., EDT. Leo energy is invigorating, joyous, open-hearted and inspires creative self-expression. Leo motivates the courage to express from the heart. 

During this New Moon, Uranus and Mars are conjunct the North Node of the Moon, all in Taurus, and oppose the South Node of the Moon in Scorpio.

From an astrological perspective, the nodes represent energetic points. The South Node represents the past, ancestry, prior lives and karma. The North Node represents healing and keys to soul evolution in this lifetime.

This New Moon offers support for healing the past and evolution. The conjunction inspires a great awakening and assertion to walk a heartfelt, truthful path that resonates with nature, security and serenity. Listening carefully to instinctual and soul signals will offer insight that inspires liberation, individuation and new beginnings.

Readers can personalize these themes by finding the astrological signs and points on their astrological natal charts.
