The First Half of July 2017 Astrology Forecast for Creatives | buckle up buttercups

"If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next - if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions - you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to."
 - Margaret Atwood The Blind Assassin

July is the run up to a mind-bending eclipse season in August and August will clear the slate (eclipse something out, bring something BIG to light) for whatever is getting a total reboot in September and October. A permanent change is coming. Beliefs will be shattered. If you think you are awake now, you ain't seen nothing yet.

But first let's get back to July and our journey through the moody and magical sign of Cancer! August's big eclipse is at 28 degrees Leo and the 28th degree will be triggered multiple times in July, so we know July will give us some previews of what is coming.

(the thing to remember about the future is that sometimes YOU JUST CAN'T GET THERE FROM HERE)

The month kicks off with Mars opposing Pluto on July 3rd followed one week later by the Sun opposing Pluto. This is big stuff.

To know what this is all about we have to backtrack through a couple previous dates - remember when something starts energetic fields are created that get triggered later when celestial energies (planets and points) come in contact with them. Early July's transits take us back to October 2016 and January 2017. With Pluto involved we know this story will be about power struggles, manipulation, control, sex, money, compulsion, addiction, death, rebirth - what we are/were willing to do to "win".

Everyone is feeling the pressure somewhere is their lives. We could come to regret impulsive actions taken now ...

Really the entire month of July (Cancer is opposite Pluto while he travels through Capricorn for the next few years - summers are going to stay pressurized) has volatile Pluto aspects. Pluto enters Aquarius in 2023 and we have alot to do before he gets there - and what we do NOW will determine what kind of world we get THEN.

"The future is what we make it" to quote Sandra Connor in Terminator II or Walt Disney - one of those two.

I think much of what we are really feeling now is the dividing of reality "choices" (isn't it very, very clear now that the physical has caught up with the metaphysical that we see what we want to see or more accurately put we see what we energetically line up with!) as the vibrational mismatch between all of us becomes wider and wider. There are things we can't hold onto anymore because the gap between who we were and who we are is just too great. We are energetically disconnecting from the people, places, situations, alliances, roles and beliefs that are no longer on our wavelength.

Yes, it's hard. Bigly hard. HUGE HUG.

On July 9th we have our annual Full Moon in Capricorn. This checks us in big time with those New Year's resolutions we set last January around the Capricorn New Moon. Looking at this power hungry Moon makes me nervous, heady and queasy. Sun conjunct Mars. Moon conjunct Pluto squaring Uranus, Jupiter and Eris. We will focus on the things we can control to get through this one. Post to follow.

From July 10th - 16th the skies slow down a bit and we catch our breath (of course, keep in mind I can't see the transits hitting your particular chart). Remember when your kids were babies and people told you to nap while they napped - well, I know you probably didn't actually do it then, but try it now - this is a good week for napping!

We are in a whole new world.

I know it may not always feel like it is a good one because all we can feel yet about any lack of boundaries, limits and clear definition of what is "real" is the instability these fast changes are bringing us and it feels scary. 

But if I could show you a movie reel of your past lives (or if you do not resonate with past lives - the lives of your ancestors) - you would see that you have never, ever been so free!

On July 17th-20th we are back in the frying pan with Venus squaring Neptune and Mars squaring Uranus. Something will not be controlled now. Rash actions are possible. Love is hard. Something is distorted, draining or drifting. Creative breakthroughs are possible, too!

July 18th-19th - have some good aspects. There is excellent energy to make art, do spiritual or healing work. There is gold here if we are willing to dig a bit and be out and about and looking for it! Problems will not be easily swept under the rug though and could take some time to unravel themselves. Quick fixes fall apart later. We could be restless, but most of the energy here is about creative expression and interactions with groups.

The last 10 days of July will be all about fiery Leo - heat waves, wild fires - hot messes will be hotter messes. The New Moon starts us on the countdown to the BIG August eclipses (we have two Leo New Moons this year!). Mercury prepares to go retrograde and starts traveling the degrees he will backtrack. Events begin to conspire to get us focused where we are needed .... remember the North Node is in Leo now. Our brain is not equipped for these huge energy shifts but our heart will take us where we need to go.

We'll talk more about the end of the month in a couple weeks. xo all
