July 2021: Creative Tension

discover the keys to unlock excitement and get rid of tension


Overall:

What I wrote in the 2021 annual forecast holds true: July begins fraught with tension and angst. No worries as it softens up throughout the month. Let out a breath or better yet, take a vacation to come back refreshed and invigorated. This can be a creative, new and exciting time, but requires nimbleness and knowing. Unfortunately, neither may be accessible for you right now. Make friends with the unknown as it offers unlimited possibilities.

I’m going LIVE in our free FB group on Thursday, July 1st at 10:30 am ET.  Join us by clicking here.

I present the information differently in the lives to give you another way to access the stars.

My advice: I would do both at the top of month, especially now at the apex of the year. You’re positioning how 2022 will go for you.

Big Star Events:

  • 7/1, 7/4, 7/29 Mars oppositions and squares
  • 7/5 T-square Venus, Saturn, Uranus
  • 7/28 Jupiter ingres Aquarius

Week 1: Break-through Tension

July begins with frustration, limits and barriers You’re disappointed as everyone and everything seems to be in your way. You feel inadequate, weak and unattractive. This is slow-moving, so take your time and gather yourself. Express yourself and let your feelings be heard. Either that or work-out and get rid of the suppressed anger.What’s the good news?

You can make adjustments in how you’re approaching your goals, relationships and desires. You can rebel against constraints, erupting conflict and trying to force things OR you can take a step back and realize new ways.

You want freedom and you want it now. People confuse you, say things that don’t make sense or argue with you – just because. The question is: what do you want to do about it?

If it actually matters to you, think about what you want and take the results-oriented approach. This is NOT the time to be right. It’s the time to welcome the new and unexpected.

Get creative. Think out of the box. Act differently. Say YES to an opportunity that stretches you to move toward your future. That is supported right now. Falling back or into old patterns isn’t.

Make a plan and stick to it. Keep your eye on the prize – that’s you, your goals and the love you have in your life. It’s also your value and your finances. If you feel isolated and alone, take advantage of the solitude to make investments into your growth.

New Moon: What do you REALLY want?

Details: July 9 New Moon 18°Cancer @ 9:17 pm ET

This New Moon in Cancer is somewhat overridden by the tension of the past and future and how you feel about both with respect to your relationships. Are your relationships supportive of your growth or are they in conflict? The better question: are you supportive of your own growth or are you internally conflicted? Are you asking for support, letting your loved ones know you’re growing, but love them too? Are you being honest with yourself and others? Do your choices reflect your wishes and dreams?

The stars are being intentionally confusing to help you be passionate, open hearted and constructive, even when you feel aggressive and tense. How will you use this time of strife to radically choose yourself? Are you brave enough to know, like and trust yourself fully? Will you invest your time, effort and resource to live the life you are born to live?

This Moon asks all of you.

You can definitely find new solutions using your intuition, curiosity and insight. This can actually be very positive.

How will you answer her call?

Week 2: Feelings of Relief

The tense New Moon stresses all of your relationships and finances. It feels lonely and even sad. The stars conspire to hold you alone and afraid to give you an excuse to break free and then they love you enough to allow relief to come flooding in after a few days.

Your mind aligns with your feelings and gives you momentum to drop into your heart. Your thoughts turn toward optimism and good tidings. You feel sunny and filled with good cheer. This is the calm after the storm and such blessed relief. Revel in it. Bask in the glory of wanting to spend time with others, be social and share all of yourself with them.

By the end of the 2nd week, it’s a sexy, romantic and tender time. Although it’s mid-work week, who cares? Celebrate. Make a mid-week date with friends or a loved one. Take advantage of the sweetness.

Our team has our monthly magical night date and I’m teaching the Tarot. I can’t wait. Make plans for yourself to enjoy as this magical energy abounds.

Week 3: The New or Crisis?

The 3rd week begins in harmony filled with creative and artistic pursuits and is an excellent time to be visible and shine your brilliance. Your image is at an all-time high. It’s also supportive of good health, social and environmental justice.

Yet crisis is building. Events beyond your control or manipulative people invade your energy. Stand in your own power. Let go of control. Recognize change reigns to create the honest version of yourself. Change is either uncomfortable and scary or it’s compelling and invigorating. You decide. Let whatever doesn’t fit be stripped away. It’s going to happen anyway. Welcome it.

When things fall away, it makes room for the new. New friends, interesting people, exciting news; different point of view, solving problems.

Week 4: Glimpses of Growth

The 4th week starts with a Happy Birthday shout out to Leo as Venus makes some interesting choices. Your social life gets busy and you want to take vacation or the easy way out of work. Be carefree and play on your own time if you have it. Otherwise, be mindful of making mistakes as your attention is elsewhere.

Full Moon: Opposites – Too much or just right?

Details: 7/23 Full Moon Leo & Aquarius 1° @ 10:37 pm ET

The Full Moon forces are unusually opposing at this time. The one-degree makes them more forceful, but there are other energies at play contributing to the stretched feeling. The oppositions under review are:

  • Good – bad.
  • Relax – work.
  • Thoughts – feelings.
  • Easy – hard.
  • You – other.

Making adjustments to accommodate both of these opposing energies is the gift of this Full Moon. How can you work hard and take it easy? When will you align your mind and heart?  What will you invite ease as you make strides?

This tension of the opposing forces is too much if you take one over the other. When you blend them, they become almost too much and this the difference between success and not quite reaching your definition of satisfying success.

As the last week of July continues, you feel imaginative and dreamy. There’s a softness in the energy, helping you communicate better when you let go of control. You can be influential instead of controlling. Psst…doing so gives you much better results anyway.

You’ll know you’re holding on too tightly if you feel pressured and conflicted. The worst version of this is to invite power plays, intimidation and threats. Take a breath, step away and look deeper at what’s prompting these forces. When you’re nakedly honest with yourself, you find hidden treasure. The truth lies beneath the surface. You lie beneath the surface. Aren’t you worth the plunge?

I think you are, do you?

Fun, playful influences come to you at the end of the month. You feel exuberant to have survived all of the tension and stress during the last few weeks. It’s like a relief valve lets out all of the pressure and you want to stand up and shout. So do it.

Let’s shout hooray together.

HOORAY!

Now, let’s get back to it. Good luck awaits as long as you don’t get carried away. Don’t overpromise, overextend or over-exaggerate. Stay in your lane, get rooted and growth comes easily and expansively.

You feel confident and capable of what’s to come. Welcome August with renewed motivation and focus.

Bottom Line: Get creative or be tense

July presents opportunities or loss. It brings tension or creativity. The month is filled with hostility, aggression and relationship stress or it welcomes new ideas, interesting friendships and lots of possibility. Your future is now. Are you actively choosing it or holding onto the past?  Your answer lies in how the month feels for you. Make a note to revisit this part of the post at the end of the month. As I say, “Knowing it and living it are two different things.”

How have you lived the month of July? You get a glimpse of how next year will be for you with your response to this month’s energies.

June 2021: TRUTH

Better Yet, the PERCEPTION of Truth

Overall:

The words I wrote back in October 2020 for the 2021 forecast hold true:

We’re shaken about what’s happening in the collective and can reestablish our footing by diving into our deepest wishes and desires. This is the time to set our intentions for the next 6 months based upon the theme of truth.  What is true for each of us? Rely on the guideposts we’ve been planting for the first half of the year. We can combat the doubt and insecurity by focusing on our long-term goals. Also, be open and honest to avoid unnecessary squabbles and power plays.

 

Big Star Events (chronologically):

  • Mercury still retrograde: 5/29 – 6/22
  • New Moon/Eclipse: 6/10
  • Saturn square Uranus: 6/14 for 2nd time this year
  • Venus back in bounds 6/18
  • Jupiter retrograde: 6/20 – 10/18
  • Neptune retrograde: 6/25 – 12/1

 

Week 1: Complications

The first week of June continues the mixed bag energy of May. June begins as May ends – confusing, destabilizing and complicating, yet filled with opportunities for success. 2021 has proven to move and shake to help find footing in what’s real and not real. On one hand, you have a force pushing you toward success and recognition and on the other, it’s complicated with intense power plays and competitive forces pulling at you. In the middle, there’s a nebulous protective veil making you feel safe and secure. Mixed bag? That’s an understatement.

Week 2: Ch-ch-changes

The week begins with exciting news and you’re riding high, filled with confidence. Your mind is in full gear and wants to digest lots of information. You seek any and all activity.  You desire fun and lightness after these last many months. Then as quickly as this fun bubble begins, it deflates. Your hit a low energy and it’s too much for you.  You get knocked with disappointment through dishonesty or deception. What you think is true proves not to be.

Highlight: June 14th is one of the big star clangs of the year (reminiscent of February). Refer to my long post about how it affects you: https://www.kimwoods.com/2021starclang/ Change is upon you. You can’t stop it, so don’t try. These changes are for your own good. Let go of outdated patterns of behavior and take action to embrace your future. Remember, growth is unfamiliar, so your mind wants to reject it. Don’t let your mind lead. Your heart knows what’s good for you. Follow its whispers. Hint: It’s about being naturally, unapologetically and authentically you.

New Moon: Mind or Intuition?

Details: June 10 Annular Solar Eclipse New Moon in Gemini @ 6:54 am ET

The New Moon is all about the mind – how it thinks, speaks, converses, observes, perceives and intuits. It’s also about how busy it can get, tangled in confusion and playing games with you about how you use your time, focus and energy. The upcoming changes on the heels of those coming fast and furious this year, have you questioning yourself and others. Adding to the mix is an intensity about power and control over your home and work lives. You feel pushed and pulled. My ONE tip? Drop into your heart and let it guide you.  You’ve heard me say this plenty of times, your heart always knows.

Week 3: Soft & Slow

The 3rd week gives you a much-needed breath. Take it slow and relax into the sweet, sensitive energies of the watery signs. You feel creative and compassionate. Let yourself fall into an easy rhythm and carve out time for self-care and tender moments. Live, laugh and love. Jupiter retrogrades on June 20th until October, giving you clarity on the ways you’re taking advantage of your gifts. Your life’s quest is under review – how are you doing against your soul mission? Are you fulfilling your heart’s desires? Will you say YES to living your life to its fullest or will you remain in the comfortable safe haven you’ve created for yourself? This is an easy time to relax and renew, and it’s also a good time to ponder your answers.

Week 4: Opportunity

June ends with opportunity. You feel good with increased enthusiasm. The prior week’s pace renews your energy and outlook. Accept growth with confidence. As the days click by, pressure intensifies and relationships become fraught with suspicions and jealousy. Don’t succumb. This is about control. Let go of control and step into influence. Your power comes from the fluidity of it, not the holding of power over another.

For those keeping track, on June 25th, Neptune joins Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in retrograde motion. The rose-colored glasses come off. You get a glimpse of clarity. You may like what you see and you may not. Try not to judge. It is what it is. Accept it, make a plan for taking strides and take action.

At the end of the month, there’s a driving force asking you to step into your future. This is more than the other energetic forces to date this year. It’s almost as if the stars are telling you – now or never. Psst…say YES.

 

Full Moon: Balance

Details: June 24 Cancer & Capricorn @ 3 ° at 2:40 pm ET

Balance is the goal of this Full Moon. Balance between female and male, inner and outer life, yin and yang, to be or to do. You have intellectual support from Mercury as he’s tiring of his antics and is beautifully helping you right now. Good luck, good news, good fortune is upon you. Does it feel fortunate? That’s the key question. The struggle comes from an intense battle for your right to be the central character of life. If you’ve been standing in this position for a while now, you feel fine. It’s natural for you, so you can deepen your commitment to yourself while beautifully supporting others. If this is new for you, however, you feel a power play for control. Let it go. Seriously. Let. It. Go.   You gain more by embracing the nuances of balancing act required of you than you do by pushing others away.

 

Supportive Intuitive Tools

Tarot: Player – Child of Worlds

With the child card, you’ve mastered setbacks by seeing them as opportunities and are now ready to explore the playfulness of life. You lighten up and say YES to learning with curiosity and wonder. Love the journey by being a perpetual beginner. Be present in the journey, not the destination.

Crystal: Lepidolite

This crystal is an excellent calming and grounding stone. It assists in all spiritual connections – Akashic records, shamanic journeying, cosmic awareness and spiritual exploration. It helps process past life feelings to help remove blockages in the present. Lepidolite balances your mind-body-spirit and reminds you that you are your own soul mate.

Flower essence: Agrimony

Bach flower essence, agrimony, helps you deal with uncertainty as it aligns you with your inner truth. It allows your true feelings to come to the fore by deeming them important enough to have a voice. You’ve been pretending everything is fine, regardless of how you actually feel. Your feelings are important and pretending otherwise undermines them and you. Let agrimony assist in your alignment with your own inner truth.

 

Bottom Line:

Truth is a perception. What’s true for you, may or may not be true for someone else. Let your definition of truth guide you in your own life without interfering with another’s definition of truth. Let go of judgement, step into alignment with your inner wisdom and allow the opportunities to flow.
