September Oracle – Discover How to Build a Stronger Foundation

Summary: 

2020 has been trying and here we are in its 9th month, tired and weary, and just in time as the energies pull you back to pause and take a breath. You’ve reached the summit and realize its only base camp, but that’s okay. Replenish yourself this month to gear up for the rest of your life beginning in December. You’ll relish this quieter time if you see it as positive instead of negative. 

I’ll be going LIVE on Tuesday morning at 10:00 am ET to talk about all of it. Power Up Your Prosperity in the True KLT group. 

Days: 

Better days: 9/1, 9/3, 9/4, 9/5, 9/6, 9/13, 9/14, 9/17, 9/22

Days to tread softly: 9/2, 9/4 (not a typo – it’s both), 9/9, 9/11, 9/15, 9/18, 9/19, 9/21, 9/25, 9/27, 9/28, 9/29

Goals: 

  • Get all the things done in the first week. 
  • After that, be patient. 
  • Go inward to reflect and devise an excellent self-care regiment.  
  • Make plans, strategize and take stock. 
  • Make adjustments as necessary.  
  • Strengthen your foundation.  

Tarot:

The Tarot card for September is the Harvest – Nine of Worlds. 

This is an ending and beginning card signaling the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next one. You’ve been hard at work and now is the time of culmination. Ensure you’ve completed everything you set out to do. Go past the finish line. 

Build the basis for the next cycle to make all of your dreams come true. 

Weekly Energies:

Astrologically, there are 4 big forces this month – Mars moving into retrograde position on the 9th, Jupiter and Saturn stationing direct on the 13th and 29th respectively and Mars confronting Saturn again on the 29th. This month sets up the next 2 to round out 2020’s birthing of a new era. 

Astronomically, Earth is passing between Mars and the Sun in an elegant cyclic dance that happens every two years, however Mars also has his own dance with the Sun. In 2018, Mars and the Earth came close while Mars was his closest to the Sun, making this the first time since 2003. This year, Earth and Mars will be the closest on October 6th, but is bright in the night sky until then. Enjoy!

Week 1: Get Things Done!

September begins with yummy energy helping you feel charismatic and influential. Reach out to others for powerful communication and connection. It’s also a great time for discovery and research. (Mercury trine Pluto Rx)

Full Moon: Your Role in the World.

On September 2nd, the Moon reaches her full opposition point at 1:23 am EDT. She’s in Pisces while the Sun’s in Virgo, each asking you to accept yourself and the world in which you live wholly and completely. This is both personal and universal and is directly in line with the “Yes, but…” conversations I’ve been having on my FB business page on Thursdays. It’s all about holding the expansive space of infinite possibility with the practicalities of daily life and all of the tension it involves and the almost impossible commitment it entails. 

On this same day, there are 2 other influences affecting this Sun-Moon opposition, one supportive and the other conflicting. First the confrontation that complicates friendships, love and finance. This energy triggers feelings of inadequacy due to lack of attention, appreciation and acknowledgment. These are typically wounds from authority figures, particularly parents that get a zing right now. It’s an opportunity for you to learn to love yourself. Forgive yourself for the past and fully enjoy and appreciate yourself now. 

In the outer world, prepare for healing by paying off debts literally and figuratively. It’s also a good time to plan home renovations or redesigning to beautify your home or office. (Venus opposition Saturn Rx)

The supportive energy brings insight and discovery. You have feelings of self-confidence about trying new things or new people. Be careful not to shed old things or people that are still aligned with you, even though they feel uncomfortable right now. Embrace the new WHILE healing any inner discomfort from the former. This is the time to see the true value in all areas of your life. (Sun trine Uranus Rx)

The next day, everything administrative feels good right now. Make plans, schedule events, negotiate, sign contracts and finish up anything you’ve been putting off these last few weeks. (Mercury trine Saturn Rx)

On the 4th, there are 3 configurations that make this day both good and a tad complicated. Firstly, healthy relationships feel delicious as this transit boosts your passion and stimulates excitement. In less than healthy ones, tension and conflict arises with a fight for control. Avoid conflict by working out or being creative. Find a positive outlet for your excess sexual energy. (Venus square Mars)

Secondly, make adjustments to your thoughts about moving forward on projects and work. You want to push ahead, but deep down inside you know you need to wait. Revisit your design, fortify your plans and attend to the details. (Mercury quincunx Mars)

Lastly, you feel sexy and yearn for social activity. You have the charm to satisfy all of your connections and make them a success. This transit typically occurs twice a year, but this year, it’s occurred 4 times. This is the 3rd one with the next in mid-October. (Mercury sextile Venus)

The next day, your thoughts move into harmonious terrain as you long for beauty, elegance and sophistication. Make peace with your mind and let your heart’s desires lead. Your mind actually wants to slow down and savor. (Mercury ingres Libra)

On the last day of the week, your feelings get a lift into joy from the sensitive and nurturing ones. It’s a time for love, fun and expressing yourself creatively. You may want a new style to step out with more flair and swagger. (Venus ingres Leo)

Week 2: Be mindful.

On the 9th, the first of the big guns of the month occurs. Mars stations retrograde until November 14th. Mars is in Aries, his own sign and amplifies the impact.  Feelings of uncertainty reach an all-time high about your role in the world, at work and in relationships.  This Mars retrograde is one for the books as this is the first time in 32 years Mars has gone retrograde in his own sign of Aries.  

When Mars appears to go backward in the sky, he affects your energy level, your passion and any forward motion in work and play. Expect your energy level to drop and you’ll have no obvious momentum in life mission or passionate stimulation in relationships. Self-care is key and introspection is your vehicle. Plan, organize and get things together behind the scenes. Focus on what you truly want, but don’t make any lasting changes until this retrograde has passed. I’ll be diving as deeply into this as I’ve done for the March Saturn in Aquarius and Mars in 2020 articles. Stay tuned early next week. They’ll be a LIVE too. 😘

Also on this day, good feelings and optimism arise, so take advantage of this good fortune by taking action. It may be the last day to do so for the next handful of weeks. (Sun trine Jupiter Rx)

On September 11th, deception and confusion come to the fore. If it seems too good to be true, it is. Be discerning. Drop into your heart space before making any lasting decisions. (Sun opposition Neptune Rx)

On the 12th, push ideas beyond their limits.  Intuit and reach into your knowing in new and unexpected ways. The revelations may surprise you. I would set extra time aside for meditation as the connections may be surprising. (Mercury quincunx Uranus Rx)

Jupiter stations direct on the 13th after spending 4 months in retrospection. Your philosophy of life’s meaning and what it means to be successful has undergone review these last handful of months. Hopefully your inner compass has been realigned with your brightest future. 

The last day of the 2nd week brings influential and appealing energies. You may be recognized for your efforts by those in position of power and authority. Yum. (Sun trine Pluto Rx)

Week 3: Take stock.

There’s a bid for freedom in relationships on the 15th. Any closeness feels chafing and any compromise seems stifling. Take heed before spending your way through this energy and overindulging too much. Get creative instead. (Venus square Uranus Rx)

New Moon: Recognition.

On the 17th, the Moon stills along with the Sun at exactly 7:00 am EDT in the practically universal sign of Virgo in harmony with Saturn Rx. Long awaited recognition for all of your hard work becomes obvious. You deserve it. Take this respite and redefine your intentions for the remainder of 2020. Set them to manifest magically for you with this new Moon. (Sun trine Saturn Rx)

Pay attention to the details as your broad view of the world masks them in your enthusiasm to bring anything to fruition. Be mindful of how to communicate and keep your high-flying self-importance to a minimum. This is a good transit for your self-confidence as long as you stay firmly footed in reality.  (Mercury square Jupiter)

The 18th is a kaleidoscope of shifting colors making new shapes and patterns. Turn your thoughts and perceptions this way and that for different perspectives and points of view. (Mercury quincunx Neptune Rx)

What excites you? Expect changes in the definition of your passions and desires on the 19th.  You’re maturing and so are your tastes. Let go of those that no longer fit. (Sun quincunx Mars Rx)

On the 21st, don’t get carried away with extremist thinking as Pluto loves to take things to the edge by plunging head first into anything objectionable, namely the underbelly of humanity. Stay in your lane and dive deeply into your own truth. This is an opportunity to investigate your relationship with your inner soul, not to defend wild theories to avoid introspection. This transit is hitting 3 times in 3 months and most importantly hits exact on November 2nd – the day before the US general election.  I’ve been waiting for the right moment to post my findings for that day. Stay tuned later this week. (Mercury square Pluto Rx) 

Week 4: Balance.  

Happy Equinox Celebration! It’s the kick off of a new season, so let’s celebrate with a 3-day festival! I’m inviting you to my True KLT group to join the fun. You’ll see a light-hearted take on the weekly power tip emails to get you into the spirit of the festival. Stay tuned for all the things. 😉

Happy Birthday Libra. The day equals night on September 22nd. This is about balance. What’s in balance for you? What’s out of balance? It’s time to bring everything into alignment. Use Libra’s energy to help you. (Sun ingres Libra)

Also on the Equinox, make adjustments and course corrections in love and finance. You can make successful strides by planning accordingly after a full review. (Venus quincunx Jupiter)

The week continues to be active with energetic forces from the 23rd to the 28th, culminating with the biggest ones on the 29th. The month reaches a crescendo to launch October’s rehash of August-like energy.  

On September 23rd, you have the chance to see things for what they truly are, especially relationships in love, business and even friendships. Take note of any imbalances and determine how you want to address them.  (Venus quincunx Neptune Rx)

Also on this day, take your time in completing tasks and double-check your work. Take care while communicating with others – this is a time ripe with misunderstandings. This influence is your first hint of the Mercury retrograde October season. (Mercury square Saturn Rx)

On the 24th, be patient and relax as everything’s going to be taken out of context. Take a deep breath when dealing with aggravating people or situations. Don’t let them get the better of you.  (Mercury opposition Mars Rx)

On September 26th, explore the underpinnings of self-love and take a few days to do it. Think about how you’ve gained awareness about yourself, then examine your self-care routines. Finally, discover fun and creative ways to love yourself. (Venus quincunx Pluto Rx)

Here it is on the 27th, the next step foreshadowing the Mercury retrograde plunge next month. This is an additional sprinkling of what’s in store for the next 6 weeks. Your thoughts turn to the unfamiliar with intensity not seen in almost a year. You want to know everything about the secret, hidden and until yet, unattainable. Be wary of drama or emotional outbursts. Don’t your intentions be swayed by other’s immaturity. (Mercury ingres Scorpio)

Undergo a bit of surgery in the areas of your budget of time, resource and money on the 28th. Any tweaks pay off 10-fold. (Venus quincunx Saturn Rx)

Saturn stations direct on September 29th after four long months.  Your re-evaluation period weighing your responsibilities and how you expend your authority has come to an end. You’ve been in this energy since May 11th. How has it gone? Do you feel you’ve reset your responsibility and authority matrix? 

There are 2 more influences on this day. The first one would typically be a positive impact on your love life and may still be if you enter into it tenderly and compassionately. Your love life has absorbed a series of hits this month. Relax and breathe. Make space to deepen your love, creative pursuits or self-care routines. (Venus trine Mars Rx)

Take a protective stance on what’s important to you now. This is the same energy, but backward from what you experienced on August 24th and positions you for the next round on January 13, 2021. Don’t defend defiantly. Softly, but strongly position yourself firmly for whatever comes next. (Mars Rx square Saturn)

Monthly Stone:

Seek connection with the monthly stone Lazulite.

Lazulite comes from the Latin word, Lazanward, meaning Heaven. This stone uplifts you with positive spiritual energies. 

Additionally, it balances your chakras and aligns your thoughts with your feelings.  While this stone eases your mind, it brings you a deep sense of inner peace. Your imagination and intuition are heightened, so you can find answers to questions that have been eluding you. 

This crystal assists with true life purpose. It opens the mind and connects to the heart and soul. This stone gives you insights and guides you to the answers about every area of your life. 

To ground this energy, pair with Hematite and Covelite. Hematite helps pull this energy down to Earth, while Covelite bridges the physical and spiritual realms.

September is a month of build-up in pressure if you look at the hold-ups as negative. However, if you lean into the standstill and treat it as a plateau for review and adjustment, you’ll be much better positioned for the remainder of 2020 and 2021. 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends. 

Remember, you are loved beyond measure,

August Oracle – Why You Want to Restructure Your LIfe

Summary: 

This month is about tweaking your mindset and approach in life, love and business. It’s an internal and external restructuring. 

It’s going to come at you from all angles, so be prepared by opening your mind and flexing your stance. 

I’ll be talking about everything August in my free Facebook group on Friday at 10:00 am EDT. Join us.

Days: 

Better days: 8/5, 8/7, 8/16, 8/17, 8/18, 8/25, 8/27, 8/29

Days to tread softly: 8/1, 8/2, 8/3, 8/4, 8/10, 8/11, 8/12, 8/13, 8/24, 8/30

Goals: 

  • Say YES to all of the possibility.
  • Accept change and be flexible.  
  • Stay safe. 
  • Make the necessary adjustments. 

Tarot: 

Breakthrough – 7 of worlds

This month offers breakthrough by urging you to restructure and streamline aspects of your life to help you overcome blocks and free up your talents and resources. 

Use the power from the planets to clear your vision, to propel you forward and to act with will and determination.

Weekly Energies:

Be careful all month as it’s fraught with accidents and injuries with Mars rattling around the sky. The exact transits hit on the 4th, 13th and the 24th. 

Basically, Mars is coming to whack the crap out of everyone all month. Perfect. 

When you actively handle Mars, he helps you develop courage. The house on your particular chart where you have Aries is where you want to be brave for the rest of 2020. Find out more here

If you’re handling him, Mars gives you power, energy and vitality, so you have the fuel to live up to your desires.

When you ignore Mars, he whacks you by putting aggression people, difficult situations or accidents in front of you to get your attention. 

My advice, pay attention and openly step into your bravery. This way, Mars will gift you instead of confronting you. 

Week 1: Struggle

On the 1st day of the month, what appears too good to be true, is too good to be true. You’re reaching for anything and everything to give you relief in reaction to the tightness of the energies that haven’t let up for days, weeks and months. It’s almost too much.

Complicating matters, there’s an internal struggle of thoughts and ideas as you’re grappling with secretive behavior and hidden agendas. You’ve come too far and dealt with too much to take the wrong step now. If it seems too good to be true – it is. Go deeply into your intuition and decide based on your instincts, not your mind. (Mercury opposition Pluto Rx)

The next day, be proactive about positive change. This seems to contradict the message from the first day, but it actually doesn’t.  Remember, the right kind of change won’t feel positive at first.  It’ll feel uncomfortable and perhaps a little scary or A LOT scary. If it gives you the jitters, give it another look. It may be your best chance for growth. 

You may also be running into challenges in relationships with others. Who’s been triggering you for the last few weeks? Look at patterns to find the underlying meaning and look internally as it’s always about you, not them.  (Sun square Uranus)

Full Moon – Karmic Chance. 

Ugh. 

It’s never good when I start with ugh, but here it is. 

On August 3rd, the Full Moon reaches maximum at 11:59 am EDT with the energies of the Sun in Leo and those of the Moon in Aquarius.

With these two signatures, the higher possibility is forthrightness, creativity, and spontaneous self-expression with freedom and joyful abandon. The lower one is alienation, insecurity and the compulsive need for approval.

Unfortunately, the lower expression has tremendous energy as the rest of the Full Moon signature is awash in a sea of red.  Red means tension, difficulties and conflicts.

Yuck. 

The red flavor involves your relationships in business and in love. The combination makes you want to overstep with advice and direction that’s unwanted and unwarranted. You may be on the giving or receiving end. 

If you feel the need to over-give advice, heed it yourself. 

If you’re the recipient, let it go if possible. It’s not really about you anyway. 

Either way, don’t react. 

Instead, lean back and look at the broader picture. 

If that doesn’t work, spend time alone. 

Solace may be found in solitude. 

I’ll be going much deeper into this on Monday’s LIVE in the free Facebook group at 9:00 am ET. 

(Mercury opposition Saturn Rx, Mars square Jupiter Rx, Venus & South Node quincunx Saturn Rx)

I do want to mention one of these planetary aspects is a big gun this month. 

On the 4th, Mars squares Jupiter Rx. This isn’t the worst thing. Jupiter is benevolent and Mars is fueling him, so how bad can it be? 

It’s not, unless you ride the overly exuberant optimism with exaggeration and overextension. Don’t overextend yourself. You’ll regret it with the rest of the Mars activity. 

On the 5th, your thoughts are lively, fun and confident. Yippee. You’re also persuasive, talkative and convincing. Use this to your advantage. (Mercury ingres Leo)

On the 7th, you’ll feel protective, loving and cautious. You’re more sensitive and caring, but also more impressionable. Leverage the softness while amping up your discernment.  (Venus ingres Cancer)

Week 2: Power Plays

 This week is all about power plays, so let’s go through it to give you ways to navigate around them. It requires adjustments in your thinking and changing your approach.  

The 10th moves quickly and brings more change and excitement, however this can be stressful making you unable to handle input from other people or situations. Stay open and flexible. Don’t let your mind run amuck. (Mercury square Uranus)

The next few days heighten all of the aggravations of the last few months. Take a deep breath and get ready to make adjustments. Watch for the triggers and take a wide-angle lens to see how you can tweak things to make them better, smoother and more effective. (Sun quincunx Jupiter Rx & Neptune Rx & Mercury quincunx Jupiter Rx)

Here’s the 2nd major planetary influence of the month. 

The 13th brings crisis in confrontation and a red-hot need to be in control. You have the choice of striving to be the best or falling into the role of victim. Either is really tempting, so be wary of how you don’t show up for yourself. You can experience internal and external power struggles. Use these forceful energies to propel you forward, not hold you back. (Mars square Pluto Rx)

Week 3: Step in. 

The retrograde parade continues with Uranus stationing retrograde on the 15th where he remains until January 14, 2021. He joins, Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, Neptune and Pluto in retrograde status. 

When Uranus is retrograde, he wants you to make the necessary changes to be more authentically you. Remember the urges you’ve had for change since February as Uranus tracks back to exert these same pressures for the next handful of months. He’s particularly active at the end of October when you’ll receive a clear revelation for further changes. 

Also on this day and the next, there are more adjustments required of you. Your thoughts, healing modalities and your love life are all brought up for review. Stay as clear as possible and don’t allow confusion to crowd your relationships.  (Mercury quincunx Neptune Rx & Pluto Rx & Sun quincunx Pluto Rx)

Forward movement is here on the 16th and 17th, hooray!

Finally, all of the martial energy aligns with the other forces to make you energized and want to start new things. Begin that project you’ve been putting off.  You have increased mental acuity and stamina. 

It’s a good time for communication and debate. Your thoughts are fast, variable and concise. You can have lively discourse to make plans and use your bargaining powers to get what you want.

You’re also charming and impressive with this added dose of self-confidence. Use your magnetism and charisma to gain support and leverage opportunities. (Sun conjunct Mercury, Sun trine Mars & Mercury trine Mars) 

New Moon – Breakthrough

The New Moon on August 18th stills in Leo at 10:42 pm EDT. The Sun and Moon angle with Saturn to help you find your way through obstacles and constraints. (Sun, Moon, Mercury quincunx Saturn Rx)

An unexpected windfall and positive connection befall you. You also have heightened creativity and good luck with instant attraction in love. (Venus sextile Uranus Rx)

On the 20th, your mind is logical and somewhat pedantic. It’s okay to decide what’s useful and let go of what isn’t. Yet don’t let your imagination go by the wayside for too long. There’s a downside to being too careful or too factual. Your mind attaches to doubt and criticism, breath in possibility. (Mercury ingres Virgo) 

Week 4: It’s a mix.

Happy Birthday Virgos! 

On the 22nd, you have the practicality, organization and analytical abilities to step into those pesky details to complete any unfinished business. It’s the perfect time to embrace the analytical, planning and administrative super powers of Virgo. 

The 3rd big gun of the month occurs on the 24th. This one has the tightest force and offers only frustration and resistance. The only way through is a softening and a leaning back into vulnerability. Meet the resistance with compassion and the frustration with acceptance. You will gain much if you find a way to do this. (Mars square Saturn Rx)

The 25th is a day of fun times, good news and playful energy. You feel affectionate and indulgent. It’s a social time with beneficial relationships, good communication and available possibilities. Your intuition is strong, so open your mind and your heart for excellent connection. (Mercury trine Uranus R & Venus opposition Jupiter Rx)

Romance, relaxation and creativity is your reward on the 27th.  It’s a slow down to enjoy and bask in for the moment. Unwind and find quit ways to amuse yourself and others. (Venus trine Neptune Rx)

August 29th carries good news, as plans and negotiations go well and any business matters are handled smoothly and easily. It’s also a great time for learning and research. (Mercury trine Jupiter Rx)

On the 30th, there are 2 configurations that distort and obsess. Don’t fall prey to relationship dramas, suspicions or jealousies. Ignore distractions and manipulations. It’s a time to easily misinterpret or to be deluded by others. Take care. Stay in your own lane and flex your authority. (Venus opposition Pluto Rx & Mercury opposition Neptune Rx) 

Bottom Line: Restructuring and making adjustments provides a platform for the rest of 2020. You have the opportunity to stand fully in your authority with influence and compassion. Will you take it?  

Monthly Stone:

Seek respite in the stone of the month: Pyrolusite. 

Pyrolusite transforms as it repels negative energies and protects your auric field. It dissolves emotional manipulation, defends against erosion of your authority and instils confidence. This tenacious stone gets to the bottom of things and gives you the determination to solve them. Pyrolusite also supports your emotional healing process. 

Thank you for reading and sharing with friends.

July Oracle – Are You an Adult or a Victim?

Summary

July presents complicating forces that push you wildly, yet hold tightly.  There’s a serious influence asking you for a tough love approach. 

It’s best to get in front of this pushing force to navigate it strategically. You want to be in a place of action versus reaction. 

Days

Better days: 7/1, 7/4, 7/12, 7/22, 7/30

Days to tread softly: 7/8, 7/14, 7/15, 7/20, 7/31

Goals

  • Embrace tough love. 
  • Make a commitment to yourself to start on your intentions. 
  • Focus on doing the right thing, even though it’s hard. 
  • Be in a state of action versus reaction. 

Tarot

July is the month of the Law of Life filled with its vitality, creativity and leadership. It’s another month of power. 

You have been awakened, so be alive, animated and active. Your mind is alert, your body light and your heart sunny. 

Be a full participant in the dance of your life by becoming the Sun in your own world. 

Know you have great power and influence. 

You are a life force. 

Announcement

I’m doing another masterclass this month. Actually, it’s going to be a 5-day challenge so even bigger and better than my other ones. 😉

It’s all about your life purpose. 

It will be in my True KLT group starting July 20th.  

Stay tuned for more details. There’s too much deliciousness being worked on to share yet! 

Weekly Energies

Week 1 – Choice

July starts with a big bang of exciting and new energy filled with pleasant surprises. It’s time to break free from your doubts and fears to take a risk – just for you. Your thoughts are fast and lively and your mind searches relentlessly for answers. Open it to imagine your biggest life and you’ll be using this energy in the way it’s meant to be used. (Sun conjunct Mercury Rx & sextile Uranus) 

On a more somber note, these last 3 months have shown you A LOT about what’s coming to fruition for you in December 2020. Review your life since March 22nd and notice what’s appeared. Can you recall a few things you want to nurture into maturity?

Let’s expand the conversation. 

The outer world has been riddled with a pandemic, economic downturn and social uprising each giving a glimpse into the future. 

As always, you have a choice. 

You can fall into the downside of each; fear of getting sick, uncertainty about finances and judging others for their beliefs. 

Or, you can reach for the silver-linings of the Earth regenerating herself by putting humans in a time-out, concentration of your financial picture and choice of supporting yourself in new ways. 

Regarding the social unrest, equality is overdue. Period.

Every single human is a soul. By saying this, I’m not being color, religion or gender blind. I’m ultimately being color, religion and gender immune. There’s a difference and the key word is ultimately. There’s a ton of rebalancing that has to occur before equality is real.  With this star alignment, there’s actually a chance of this happening. (Saturn ingres Capricorn)

Full Moon – Open Window

The Full Moon in July is an open window for you to climb through to create your very best life. Seriously. 

On July 5th at 12:44 am ET, the Moon in Capricorn opposes the Sun in Capricorn. It’s the Full Buck Moon and accompanies a Lunar Eclipse. It’s penumbral so begins a few moments earlier on the eve of July 4th.  Here in the US, it’s the holiday of the country’s birth. (I’ll be talking about this in 2022, so make a mental note 😉). 

This is a time of new opportunities, change and excitement in your private life. It’s also energy you can use to break out of bad habits.

Week 2 – Healing Power

On July 8th, you feel short-tempered, irritable and impulsive.  My best advice is to exhibit control and take a conservative approach. Listen carefully and think twice before acting. This happens again on the 27th. Act with caution as you may get a double-whammy this month. (Mercury Rx square Mars)


On the 11th, Chiron stations retrograde through December 15th in the sign of Aries. When Chiron is retrograde, so much healing is available to you as you heal yourself, others are healed and vice versa. The ripple effect is phenomenal. 

The next day, you’re more understanding and want to help others. This deeper empathy makes you more creative and able to find solutions that are in service to the larger community. (Sun trine Neptune Rx)


On the 12th, Mercury stations direct. Phew, another Mercury retrograde cycle is complete. This is the second of three in 2020, all in water signs. The connection between these 3 cycles lent you a natural link between your heart and mind. Hopefully, you’re taking advantage of it to make it permanent. 

The good news, your thoughts return to normal, confusion lifts and your mind takes its rightful place again. The better news, technology may actually start working again. 

On the 14th, good luck abounds and you’ll feel like throwing yourself into lots of different activities and opportunities. Wait a beat. Assess each and then make informed decisions. Temper your enthusiasm to have grown up success. (Sun opposition Jupiter Rx)

To note, Chiron and Mars don’t exactly align, but come super close on July 14th. Mars powers up your healing. Take full advantage of this martial influence to be brave and say YES to your transformation. 

Week 3 – Struggle

The third week of July is fraught with angst. It’s a constant struggle for control and power. Ensure you’re dealing with trustworthy people who have your back in business and on the personal side, be wary of any power plays. (Sun opposition Pluto Rx)

New Moon – Setback     

The July New Moon on the 20th at 1:33 pm ET is all about setback. There are limits and constraints that make you feel as if you’ll never make headway. It’s an isolating and serious influence. All of the preceding energy in the last few weeks is pent up and adds an aggravating layer that you need to accept. This is a time of reconciliation. It’s quiet and soft on one hand and hard and brittle on the other. It feels like a still point in time. Enter wait mode instead of using force to press forward. While you’re waiting, do a full assessment of every area of your life. You’ll be better for it.  (Sun opposition Saturn Rx)

Week 4 – Open Your Heart

Happy Birthday Leos! 

On July 22nd, you feel cheerful and optimistic after a difficult week. This is the time for you to step into your natural leader role by using your magnetic and creative style. Express yourself honestly and generously to assume your rightful place. Be careful of being too dominant or fragile. Your self-assuredness serves you well. Remember, Leos main purpose is to trust in love and joy. Embrace your open heart. (Sun ingres Leo)

Also, on the 22nd, more unexpected and surprising change is upon you. This is the 6th of 6 times this same configuration has occurred since February. Perhaps, any change isn’t surprising to you any longer. (Mercury sextile Uranus)

One of the big star impacts hits again on July 27th and is entangled with lots of other planetary influence. Let’s separate it. 

In February, July and October, you come into a sense of flow and smooth sailing. This is a glass half-full instead of half-empty scenario and with everything else going on this year, it’s one of the only supportive star angles. Yum! This is a time of optimism, faith and idealism. Even without the rose-colored glasses, you can see hope in your future. (Jupiter Rx sextile Neptune Rx)


Also, on the 27th, there are 2 familiar energies and one not-so-familiar. 

First, the familiar. 

You’re confused about your role in the world and have a distorted view of yourself. This is the 3rd time of 4 this year where you lack both self-esteem and self-discipline. The only good news is its relative quickness. Complicating this, the energy reoccurring from the 8th, makes you headstrong, impulsive and impatient. (Venus square Neptune Rx & Mercury square Mars)

Now, the unfamiliar. 

You have grand ideas that seem so far out of reach, you seek quick fixes and instant gratification. Alternatively, you may distract yourself with detours that seem too good to be true. (Venus quincunx Jupiter Rx)

My advice through all of this is to attach yourself to the faith and optimism by remembering what hints you received in February. Going back to these seeds and harvesting them is the right action to take this month. Anything new and sparkly may lead you astray. 

On July 30th, you feel even bigger and expansive energies coming in yet are pressed back and questioned by others.  Come up with creative and imaginative ideas and use your charisma to engage with others. You can gain harmony in relationships and figure out solutions to take advantage of opportunities. Bottom line: Take a big step, but proceed with diligence and fortitude. (Mercury opposition Jupiter Rx & trine Neptune Rx)

On the last day of July, open yourself to a slower unfolding than previously sought. Your transformation and growth are taking place, just not as quickly or easily as you’d like. It’s okay as the tension invites more change for a better outcome. Although this doesn’t feel comfortable, it’s ultimately for your own good. (Venus quincunx Pluto Rx)

Monthly Stone

Seek respite in the stone of the month: BERYL. 

Beryl helps deal with stress, enhances courage and attunes to guidance. It’s an excellent stone for scrying and can be used as a crystal ball. This stone is traditionally used for rain magic and protection against storms. 

Beryl in its purest form is clear, but impurities give it color. 

There are popular types of beryl listed below: 

Blue (Aquamarine) is well known for its ability to promote clear communication, courage and confidence. It helps you stand your ground and release the flow of clear communication.

Colorless (Goshenite) is the Mother of crystals as it holds the feminine energy of the Moon. It helps you look honestly at yourself as it resonates with the frequency of truth. It encourages open-heartedness and helps in discerning another’s sincerity.  

Green (Emerald) encourages you to enjoy life to the fullest. Life-affirming stone with great integrity. Stone of successful love. Enhances strength of character, overcome misfortunes in life and promotes enduring partnership. Heals negative feelings and supports infinite peace.

Pink (Morganite) Grandmother stone of rose quartz. Awakens the joy of life and stimulates the heart chakra. It cleanses heart, opens to unconditional love and dissolves egotism that blocks spiritual advancement. This stone also alleviates stress.

Red (Bixbite) improves your self-esteem and confidence, while making you feel more energized. This heart-based stone brings feelings of unconditional love and respect. 

Yellow (Heliodor) is known as the gift from the Sun. It’s a gateway to light that enhances your intuition and compassion. Regain your inner strength and develop maturity to reach your potential greatness. 

July is a window into the new and its cycles may drive you batty, but strap in. 2020 is just gearing up.  

Take the high road, the longer view, the adulating stance and all with serve you. Be impulsive, give way to distractions or fall prey to confusion and the rest of the year will be filled with roadblocks and detours.
