RUNE OF THE MONTH: Tyr “God, the balance of all things”. Focus, determination, and calm see us to the finish line. Knowing who we are, where we stand and what our destination is, protects us from harm. We create the life we want through discipline, a peaceful attitude, and a clear direction. Victory is ours if we live with integrity, walk in balance, and trust our intuition.

Pluto remains retrograde until October 8. Its shadow period remains until January 30, 2023. The degree traveled in July (27º48’-27º06’ Capricorn) is represented in the Sabian Symbols by the following image: “A large aviary”. We are being asked to question everything, reassess our power, our relationship to people in positions of authority, our communications with others, the information we receive from all sources, and stand in our integrity, as much as possible above excessive darkness and worry.
Jupiter turns retrograde on Thursday 7/28 at 1:37 PM and will remain so until Wednesday November 23rd. Its shadow period continues until February 15, 2023. The degree covered in July (8º43’ Aries) is symbolized by: “A crystal gazer”. As much of the world around us is unraveling, this is our chance to dream the one we want into being. Focusing on our visions for a brighter future, holding that truth securely in our minds and in our hearts, can help us release all that is old and outmoded and usher what we want.
Saturn remains retrograde until October 22nd. Its shadow periods extends until January 27, 2023. The degrees traveled in July (24º43’- 22º59’ Aquarius) are represented by the following images: “A butterfly with the right wing more perfectly formed”, “A man having overcome his passions, teaches deep wisdom in terms of his experience” and “A big bear sitting down and waving all its paws”. Our integrity is coming into focus. How honest are we with ourselves? How much do we walk our talk? What, whom do we place our faith in? What do we trust? How optimistic are we? How have our life lessons made us a better person?
Neptune is still retrograde until December 3rd with a shadow period remaining until March 25, 2023. The degree traveled in July (25º26’-25º10’ Pisces) is symbolized by: “Watching the very thin Moon crescent appearing at sunset, different people realize that the time has come to go ahead with their different projects.” So much confusion is reigning in the world. It is difficult to differentiate what is true from the lies and the fabricated stories. Clarity can only come from within, from focusing on those things that matter to us, and fulfilling our visions with faith and trust in our ability to manifest that which we believe in.

This month’s intentional meditation starts on Wednesday 7/13 at 11:38 AM. Let us take out as many blank sheets of paper as we have intentions and place them near a window, on a balcony or in a garden so that they basked in the light of the Full Moon in Capricorn. Once that moment passes, let us gather our Full Moon charged blank sheets and place them in a folder.
On Thursday 7/28, take out your blank full moon charged papers and write on each a concise, positive intention. Place them on a balcony, in a garden or near a window so that they are out by exactly 10:55 AM for the New Moon in Leo. Once that moment has passed, staple them together and put them away in a folder expecting the manifestation of all your dreams….

Friday 7/1: Mars Square Pluto (7:14 PM)
Tempers flare up quickly. We should beware of impulsive reactions that could turn out to be quite destructive. Obstacles could arise causing much stress and resentfulness. Best to channel our energy into constructive projects we can fully control.
Saturday 7/2: Mercury Trine Saturn (3:39 AM), Mercury Square Neptune (1:53 PM)
Today, our thinking is both intuitive and structured. We may be prone to daydreaming and drifting with our imagination yet are still able to get the work done in a relatively focused manner. Our creativity is backed by disciplined work.
Monday 7/4: Mars enters Taurus (11:04 PM till 8/20), Mercury enters Cancer (11:25 PM till 7/19), Mercury Sextile Mars (11:37 PM)
During the next month and a half, Taurus natives are favored. Our actions are deliberate, forceful, and persistent. During the next 2 weeks, our thoughts are more subjective. We are focused on family, children, food, and security. Our compassion for others is enhanced. We express ourselves in a caring manner. Today, more specifically, we are direct, competitive, and decisive. Our words lead to constructive actions.
Friday 7/8: Mercury Square Jupiter (11:14 PM)
Our words may exceed what we can deliver. We may make excessive promises, be overly expansive and maybe too optimistic in legal and financial matters. It is important that we do not spend money we don’t have, and keep our expectations reasonable.
Sunday 7/10: Sun Sextile Uranus (1:39 AM)
A day to expect the unexpected. Plans may suddenly change. Unorthodox people show up. Surprising situations gear us in an entirely new direction. The more present to the moment we remain, the more flexible we are, the more enriching this transit will be.
Tuesday 7/12: Venus Trine Saturn (9:28 PM)
Today, we can get a lot of emotional support. Our graciousness and patience help us be more tolerant of boring situations and difficult people.

Our thoughts could be somewhat scattered, yet we are able to connect dots in an unusual way. We are attracted to science fiction, technological advances, and things of the future. Sudden flashes of insight create breakthroughs in situations that previously eluded us. We should beware today of illusions. Trying to save someone may be losing proposition as they may turn out to be very different from what they appeared to be. A romance that seems enchanted and magical could be deceitful.
Sunday 7/17: Venus enters Cancer (6:32 PM until August 12)
The coming month is wonderful for family reunions, being close to our loved ones, creating dinners and gatherings in our home, re decorating our space, making it more comfortable, nurturing, and welcoming. We are romantically inclined, seek peace and security. Excellent for creating a financial nest that helps us build security for the future.
Monday 7/18: Mercury Opposition Pluto (12:01 AM)
Negotiating, compromising, listening to both sides of a problem are better today than harsh ultimatums. Even if our ideas are very black and white right now, for the sake of coming to a constructive solution, they shouldn’t be presented as drastically. It is important that we are attentive to not fall prey to manipulations, control tactics, or power games which could prove very destructive.
Tuesday 7/19: Mercury enters Leo (5:35 AM till 8/4), Sun Opposition Pluto (6:39 PM)
During the next 2 weeks, we could be drawn to an art school, a theater group, or a public speaking class. Anything that will give us the confidence to speak in public and shine our light on stage is favored. Our organizational abilities are extremely good. We manage the tasks at hand with warmth and generosity. Today, more specifically, our ability to stay in our integrity could be challenged by ruthless, manipulative people. Grace under pressure is required. Moving forward while keeping the highest good of all in mind, helps us achieve the success we deserve.
Friday 7/22: Sun enters Leo (1:07 PM till 8/22)
During the coming month, we feel exuberant, want to bask in the limelight, are drawn to glamour in all its forms, and may be a little more dramatic than usual. Standing in the limelight, being generous, warm, and cheerful brings much magic around us.
Saturday 7/23: Mercury Trine Jupiter (10:52 AM)
A wonderful day to make travel plans or start a long-distance journey. We feel happy, positive, self-confident, and have much trust and faith both in ourselves and in the goodness of the universe.

Our mind is open to the world and adventurous.
Sunday 7/24: Venus Square Jupiter (11:13 PM)
Today, misplaced confidence, errors of judgement, extravagant spending, and over-indulgence could be disastrous. Financial and emotional moderation are called for.
Tuesday 7/26: Mercury Square Mars (12:13 PM)
Best to avoid quarrelsome people as conflicts could happen with little notice. Tempers flare up quickly. Impulsive decisions could result in violent consequences. Important to stay vigilant when operating a motor vehicle or any sharp, potentially dangerous object.
Thursday 7/28: Mercury Square Uranus (2:16 PM)
A sudden break of routine may happen today that sends us on a whole new trajectory. Unusual people cross our path. Unexpected information opens new ground. Someone in our day-to-day environment may act irrationally or demand more freedom and independence than usual. Best to go with the flow with little expectations.
Saturday 7/30: Mercury Opposition Saturn (11:05 PM)
We could get depressing news today and become prone to skepticism and negativity. We may require more solitude than normal. Our daily work, duties, and obligations seem both tedious and boring.
